The first Important atep In the direction
in securing the desired outlet on the At

Southern Pacific railroad la believed to
have ben taken by Mr. Harrlrnan aeveral
weeks ago. when It- was reported that one
of .the roads under his control had taken
over the control of the Baltimore & Ohio
by the purchase of a block of 400.000 shares
of the Baltimoro Ohio company, which
was gold by the Pennsylvania Railroad
euinpsny. Thl would give Mr. Harrlrnan
a rtfute from Chicago and St. .Louis to Bal
timore and New York. To complete the
ambitious proposition for a continuous line
from ocean to ocean It waa necessary only
te connect the western terminals of the
Baltimore it Ohio with the eastern termi
nals of the Southern Faoiftc and I'nlon Pa

wervea amply. Its line from Omaha to Chi

Baltimore it Ohio, while the Illinois Cen

Directors Explain Action.
.Shortly before the meeting the eight di

letter to. President Fish giving their rea
sons for refusing: to vote for his re-election.
The letter declared that In June last with
out consulting the other members of the
hoard of directors, Mr. Fish issued a circu
lar to the stockholders requesting proxies
. for the annual election. At the next meet
ing of the board it was declared Mr. Fea-
body offered a resolution that a committee
of directors. Including Messrs. Astor, Auch
Incloss,. Goeiet, Luttgen and Vanderbllt. bn
appointed to request proxies from stock
holders for the annual meeting. It was de
clared that Mr. Fish defeuted such action
by leaving the room and breaking a qua
rum. The board then ad.tourned and during
. the following week It was declared Messrs.
Fish, Peabody and Harrlrnan signed an
agreement that the successor to W. Morton
Grlnncll be selected by a majority of the

secure pence and provided that Mr, Fish
was to Vote all proxies. The letter con
tinued as follows:

af Broad Chorchaoea.
BOSTON, Nov. 7. The Clerical X'nlon for
the Maintenance and Defense of Catholic
Principles, a national organization In the
IDplscopal church, at a meeting here today
decided not to permit ultra-liberal utter
ances of a few of the "broad church-'
clergy in various parts of the country to be
made from time to time without protest.
The sentiment of the union was that there
should be more activity against what was
termed "error In the pulpit and In the writ
lug of arcleslastlcs."
It was voted to observe the twentieth an
niversary of the union, which falls on Jan
uary 30, with a solemn high mass at the
Church of St. Mary the Virgin, New York
City. Right Rev. Oeorge Franklin Seymour,
bishop of Springfield. III., was chosen to
preach the anniversary sermon.
Before the business session today a sol
emu high mass of requiem for the repose
of the soul of Bishop Isaac Lea Nicholson
of Milwaukee, late president of the union.
was sung at the Church of the Advent.
I From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. Nov. -7. (Special Telegrams-President
Roosevelt today accepted
the resignation of Secretary K. A. Hitch
cock of the Interior department, to tnke
effect March 4, 1!I7. He simultaneously
announced his purpose to promote Janice
It. Outfield of Ohio, now commissioner of
corporations, to the office of secretary of
the Interior. .
Sccrrtary Hitchcock voluntarily tendered
his resignation becnuse of falling lieiilth.
The president promptly accepted his resig
nation, for he himself on several occasions
within the last year, observing Mr. Hitch
cock's alarming physical condition, had
suggested to him the advisability of re
linquishing his burdensome cabinet duties.
F.ach suggestion of this sort, however, wns
nut aside hv the secretary, who was de
termined to see the finish of the more Im
portant prosecutions of land thieves who
had lecn run down under his direction.
Mr. Hitchcock's family has been more
concerned about his health than the presi
dent, and it Is well known that for the
lust year his wife and daughters have per
sistently urged him to give up the cares
and worries of office and take a rest; but
even the entreaties of his wife were dis
regarded, until now the secretary, who is
much more aged than when he entered the
cabinet. Is literally compelled to yield, while
his every desire is to remain to the end of
Mr. Roosevelt's administration.
The countless prosecutions and convic
tions of land thieves, to say nothing of
compelling cattle barons to haul down their
fences, which have been brought about in
the last two years, bear evidence of Secre
tary Hitchcock's hard work. His combats
with politicians, his controversies with sub
ordinate government officials, and his con
tests with sonie of the shrewdest attorneys
In the land, have all tended to Impair his
health, until today he la on the verge of
Richards Follows Chief.
Land Commissioner Richards, who will re
tire with. Hitchcock, olao resigned volun
tarily. Since he succeeded Blnger Her
mann, Mr. Richards has ,had Innumerable
personal sorrows and afflictions heaped
upon him, and It has been known for some
time that his duty here has not been pleaa
ant. His thorough knowledge of public
land matters, his unquestioned integrity.
an jai s western nerve, have enabled him to
re tt efficient service in salving many per- iHll:
plexing problems left over by commissioner
Hermann, and he retires from office with
much credit. Richards' successor has not
yet been chosen.

Captain Theodore B. Hacker, commissary

' Moody Goes to Supreme Hecch.
The president toduy announced .the ap
pointment of. Attorney General William
Henry Moody of Massachusetts as Justice
of the supreme court of the United States
to succeed Justice Henry Billings Brown,
who retired some time ago. Mr. Moody
has filled the office of attorney general
since July 1, 1904; previous to that time
he had served for more than two years
as secretary of the navy. He had rep
resented his state In the fifty-rourth,
fifty-fifth and fifty-seventh congresses.
It Is generally expected that Mr. Moody
will retire from the Department of Justice
the latter part of December.

SWITCHMEN REJECT PROPOSAL
Employes af Railroads , F.nterlaa
Chicago Refaae to Accept Offer
CHICAGO, Nov. 7.-Tho Switchmen's
union today declined the proposition made
by the managers of the railroads entering
Chicago to arbitrate the demands of the
men for an Increase In wages of 10 cents
an hour. The railroad managers then of
fered the men an Increase of i emits an
hour and proposed arbitration of the ques
tion whether or not the men should re-
celve the 10-cent Increase.
The men took the proposition of the em
ployers under consideration and It is ex
pected a reply will be returned tomorrow.
The general impression tonight among both
the employers snd the switchmen was that
a compromise would be reached and that
a strike of the 20, (XX) switchmen employed
on. the roads Interested In the controversy
would be averted.

INDIANAPOLIS. Nov. 7 According to
the latest returns received throughout the
state, Indiana went about Si'.OOo republican
In yesterday's election. The democrats
gained two congressmen, one from the
Eighth and one from the Eleventh district
making the delegation nine republican and
four democrat. Congressman John C.
Chancy (rep.). In the riecond district, hs
a plurality of about 3C0. The Twelfth dis
trict shows Clarence C. Gllhanis (rep.)
elected with a plurality of about 300. The
Thirteenth district elected Congressman
Abraham L. Brick (rep ) by a plurality of
255. These were the three districts In
doubt. The legislature will b republican
on joint ballot by about thirty.
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 7. The returns
from the Interior of the state are coming
In very slowly and It is yet Impossible to
give exact figures, except from small pre
cincts and cities where voting machines
were used. The republican state central
committee claims that GUIett has been
elected governor by at least 10,000 plurality
over Bell, democrat, and considerably more
over Lnngdoti, the Independence league
candidate. At democratic headquarters
this claim Is not admitted and It is as
serted that when full returns arc jccolvcd
they Will show that Bell has been success
ful by a small margin. As an Indication
of how the vote Is running, returns from
S22 precincts out of 2.174 In the state give
Gillctt t2.S2fl; Bell, 37,942, and Langdon 10,
221 votes. In making their estimates the
republican managers have counted on iO.iKiO
or more plurality for Glllett in Los Angeles
county, but If the ratio shown by returns
from 13ti out of 24 precincts received hcte
Is not changed his plurality there will not
exceed 4.5uO. It Is asserted by tho repub
lican county committee that these returns
are from the smaller precincts and that
thoBe yet to be heard from will show high
pluralities for Gillctt. That the entire con
gressional delegation of eight will lie re
publican now seems certain, late returns
from the Second district, where Duncan E.
McKlnley, republican, was being closely
pressed by W, A. Beard, democrat, giving
the former a good lead.
The legislature will be very strongly re
publican In both branches. All the supreme
Justices elected are republican, but for pre
siding Judge of tho appellate court the
nico between Carroll Cook, republican, and
James A. Cooper, democrat, is so close
that the result cannot be predicted. A
number of constitutional amendments were
voted on, but their fate Is yet In doubt.
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 7Beven hun
dred and ninety-one precincts out of 2,471
In the state, minus Los Angeles and Ala
n edn counties, which are usually heavily
republican, give Glllett (rep.) for governor,
