NEV YORK. May 9-New capital Issues,
aggregating 136.0u0,(J00, which were an
nounced today by the Union Pacific and
Southern Pacific companies, created a sen
sation In financial clrcUs nnJ resulted In
a sharp decline In prices on the Block ex
change. When the announcement was made
that the directors will aj-k their stockhold
ers to authorize such Issues quotations of
Union Pacific shores dropped a total of
tH.Xi per share from the previous high fig
ure of the day. I'art of this decline was
made 'up In later dealings. This Intest
move on the part of the Harrlman systems
caused much comment In financial circles
and drew a statement from Mr. Harrlman,
who said the directors decided It would b
better to offer stockholders preferred stock
at nas rather than tn sell Southern Purine
bonds at a high rate of Interest, lie be
lieves Uils will better maintain the credit
of the company.
"Southern Pacific hasa floating debt of
about $32,300,000. said Mr. Harrlman. "Of
this sum $14,2n0,O0O Is payable to Union Pa
cino for advances. Under the arrangement
announced today Union Pacific will take 45
per cent of the 136.000,000 stock offered by
the Southern Pacific. Stockholders of
Union Pacific, will hold a meeting In June
to authorise an Issue of $100,000,000 of com
mon stock. An Issue of $75,000,000 deben
tures will have the first call on this to the
extent of $40,000,000. so that when all deben
tures are converted there will still remain
a balance of $60,000,000 common stock au
thorised, but not Issued."
Mr. Harrlman also said that the Union
Pacific has $213,000,000 In unencumbered as-
sets and 1,628 miles of unmortgaged track.
Under the plan announced today the de
benture bonds, which will bear 4 per cent
Interest and which will be sold to stock
holders at $900 for each $1,000 bond, may
be converted Into common etck of the
Union Pacific at any time within three to
five years at the rate of $175 per share of
common stock. The market value of the
common stock at the close of the exchange
today was $14126 per aha re.
The director of thj two companies also
,jt"tA today to place the stock of the re
spective companies on a quarterly dividend
basis Instead of a semi-annual basis, as
ineretotore. lira nrst quarterly dividends,
l which were declared today, wen Vt the
r same rate as In the recent past. This was
I 2! per cent on Union Pacific common, ISi
per cent on .Southern Par.lflo, thus con-
tlnulnff the Interest distribution to stock
holders at the rate of 10 per c..t for the
former and S per cent for Southern Pacific
Blar Surplus for Year.
At a meeting of the board of directors
of the Union Pacific company today the
chairman submitted a statement showing
the estlmnted earnings over operating ex
penses for the year ending June JO, 1907, to
Deducting from this the Interest on the
furKd debt. $8,454,000; slnkh.g fund re
quirements, $1,200,000; Interest on loans,
1877.000, and other expenss. $27,000. would
leave a surplus of approximately $22.
900,000. The statement continues:
"In addition to the above. Income the
company will recelvs interest and divi
dends other than from Investment securi
ties. $12,323,000; rental of steamships, $244,000,
which will bring the total Income of the
company up to say $36,324,000."
Mr. Harrlman stated that It was his
belief that the actual returns would be
greater rather than less than the estl
mated figures as they had been made up
on very conservative lines. After paying
the dividend on the preferred Mock,
$4,000,000, and the dividend on the common
stock, $20,000,000, there would be something
over $i:;ono,Oto over and above all re
quirements of every kind.

According to the statements submitted
to the directors of tho Southern Pacific to
day the ptobable earnings of that company
lor the year ending June 30, 1907, will be
approximately 44,5(i7,('00; fixed charges In

I la Karope
PITTSFIELD. Maas., May 9.-The Right
I Rev. George Worthinuton, bishop of Ne
i braska. has been appointed to take charge
! of the American Episcopal churches in
1 Europe ln kuccesslon to Bishop Henry C.
j Potter, who has resigned,
j Bishop Worthlngton is a resident of New
1 York and this city. On account of heart
trouble he was not able to stay In his
diocese, where the climate la dangerous to
his health. His work In Nebraska Is car
ried on by the Right Rev. Arth'ir L. Wil
liams, his coadjutor.
"This new appointment for Bishop
Worthlngton will not affect his relations
as bishop of the Nebraska diocese." said
Dean Beecher of Trinity cathedral. "It
merely invokes extraordinary and addi
tional work for Bishop Worthlngton. It
will not necessitate his change of resi
dence in any manner. It will require him
to go abroad about once a year or pnaalbly
oftener. The work Is merely to look after
the Interests of the American Episcopal
chapels and caurchos throughout Europe."

of two cars of the United Railroads,

business and residence streets of the
western addition. Stirred by admiration
of the courage of unarmed strike breakers
In operating two cars In the mob-crowded
thoroughfare, women all along the route
stood In doorsteps or leaned from windows
and waved handkerchiefs, clapped their
hands, cheered and threw kisses to the
nonunlonlsts as the police-protected cars
ran slowly by. On the return trip, on
Sacramento street, near Presidio avenue,
a young girl ran out . from a florist's shop
and tossed a handful of bright red, long
stemmed carnations to the platform of
one of the cars. Lifting their caps and j
smiling, several of the men leaned far out
and caught the flowers. The cars were
halted then, while young women brought
clusters of carnations and roses from the
shop and offered them to the men.

the oven. They were devoured In a twink

ran back to her shop and brought more.
The afternoon's trip, however, was not
all cakes and flowers. A taunting. Jeering,
howling crowd of more than 1,000 strikers
and strike sympathisers jog-trotted for
blocks along the sidewalks, reviling the
car men, yelling -frenzied threats to "get
them yet," crying "murderers," cowards"
and "scabs." Now and then a stone or
brick was thrown, but the guilty man or
boy hidden In the recesses of the mob, es
caped detection Invariably.
Though no shooting was witnessed by
the police or the company officials or news
paper men who accompanied the cars on
their run, one of the motormen declared
after the return to the barn that a shot
was fired from the sidewalk on Devlsldero
street, between Golden Gate avenue and
McAllister. In proof of his statement he
pointed to a clean cut hole In one of the
ventilator windows of his car.

One of the strikebreakers declares that
the first shots were fired by a bartender
who ran out of a place on Turk street,
several blocks beyond the car barns, and
that the fellow shot five times, emptying
his revolver at the foremost of the two
cars. The car man says he knows where
to find this man and can Identify him.

WASHINGTON, May 9.-Presldent Roose
velt today made public, without action, a
report prepared by James B. Reynolds,
together with his recommendations regard
ing the administration of the affairs of
the District of Columbia. This is the final
one of Mr. Reynolds' reports on the af
fairs of the district made in conformity
with the president's Instructions, who
I wish your investigation to terminate
In definite, practical recommendations to
me In reference to the city's present needs
and most notable defects measured by the
highost standards of good government In
this country and elsewhere.
Two reports, one on public education and
the other on housing conditions, already
have been submitted to the president by
Mr. Reynolds, the main points of the for
mer having been approved by the presi
dent of the board and the superintendent
of education. s
Mr. Reynolds summarises his recommend
ations as follows:
L. The extension of the civil service
to cover the minor offices lu ihe District of
Columbia. ' ' -
2. The creation of an office of governor
at a salary of JlCi.Ooo per annum.
8. The creation of departments of bealth,
police and fire, bulldlngn and public works,
street engineering, charities, corrections
and housing and lnbor. These departments
should be conducted by a commissioner
at a salary of perhaps $5,000 per annum.
4. A municipal council composed of the
above named commissioners should consti
tute a public assembly for the passage of
ordinances regulating the affairs of the dis
trict. 6. A committee of 100 to represent all
general civic Interests.
The present form of administration by
three commissioners has, Mr. Reynolds
says, the advantage of the Intimate asso
ciation and frequent conference of three
executives of equal rank. But, he adds.
It has the Inevitable defects of divided re
sponsibility and confusion of authority.

SCHWAB SAYS HE IS MISQUOTED

"I shall build no more warships on the

The steel magnate, accompanied by his
wife und private secretary, arrived from

Mr. Schwab declared the labor conditions
In San Francisco are very bad. "I con

of such a nature that It will not soon be

dissatisfied and to one who Is accustomed
to the handling of large bodies of men It
Is evident that a settled condition Is' still

certainly not do It.
"I have been misquoted by certain west

said I would take no more contracts for
government work at the Bethlehem works.
That Is ridiculous. The Isrrct part of the

So he looked up the stock quotation In
the papers. A slight frown marred for a

fact, Mr. Schwab amused himself for a

The striking resemblance he bears to Vice

CARRINGT0N TELLS SECRETS
Names of Policyholders Bald to Have
Been Forared In Committee
NEW YORK, May t.-rC. F. Carrlngton,
who, with his employer, George R. Scrug
ham, manager of the International policy
holders' committee, and Charles Stirrup,
another assistant, were arrested on a
charge of conspiracy In connection with
the election of directors of the New York
Life Insurance company, appeared as a
witness for the prosecution In the police
court today. He testified that the names of
witnesses were written ln on ballots In the
international policyholders' committee's of
ficii and .also administration ballots which
had been sent' to the policyholders' com
mittee never were forwarded to the tellers
of the New York Life election. The calling
of Carrlngton to the stand came as a
complete -surprise. At the opening of the
hearing he waived examination, but Scrug
ham and Stirrup declared themselves ready.
Assistant District Attorney Howe was the
first witness for the prosecution. He de
scribed several conversations with Mr.
Scrugham In which Scrugham told him he
had entire charge of the work of the
policyholders' committee and was responsi
ble for Its work. Another such conversa
tion was repeated from stenographic notes,
as was also notes of a statement by Stir
rup, that In. perhaps half a dosen cases
he had written In the names of witnesses
on ballots upon his own responsibility.
CONSTRUCTION OF LAND LAW
Nebraska Man Files Suit Against
Secretary Garfield to Test
WASHINGTON. May 9. Peter G. Cox of
Nebraska today Instituted suit In the su
preme court of the District of Columbia
against Secretary Garflejd of the Depart
ment of the Interior to compel Mr. Gar
field to grant a rehearing ln a case Involv
ing title to a quarter section of land In ths
O'Neill land district In Nebraska. Cox
was the original settler on the land under
the homestead laws and his entry was suc
cessfully contested by a man named Wells.
Cox now alleges that Wells was not ln
position to make a valid entry under the
homestead laws because he had previously
exercised his right. On the other hand the
department decided that Cox's right to
make a second entry had been assured un
der the act of 1900 giving the right to such
an entry under certain conditions. The
trial of the caso will Involve the construc
tion of that law.

In First Degree Regardless of
Verdicts In the Other
BOISR. Ida.. May 9-Wllllnm D. Hay
wood, first of ths alleged participants In
the avenging cnnsplrncy. by which H Is
averred the assassination of Frnnk Sten
nenberg was plotted and executed, was
placed upon trial for his life today. Coun- ,
sel for state and prisoner entered nt once
In a businesslike way upon the examination
of prospective Jurors and kept stondlly at
the task for five hours. No Juror was
finally accepted, but substantial progress
was madn and the Indications at the close
of tho session were that a Jury could be
obtained by the end of next week.
The opening day of the trial went
through its conclusion In quiet harmony,
unmarked by unusual Incident. It was
earnest and businesslike. Its striking
feature was the entire absence of crowds
or demonstration In any form. At no time,
morning or afternoon, was the court room
more than half filled and the streets form
ing the court house square contained not a
Court Adjourns Until Monday
The case was halted shortly before 5
o'clock by the exhaustion of the Jury panel
and an adjournment was taken until Mon
day morning. Meantime the sheriff wilt
summon a special venire of 100 men. The
eleven men under examination, but not yet
finally accepted or rejected, were locked
up aad will be closely guarded.
Haywood was brought to the court room
sharply at 10 In the morning. He found
his family tn a line of chairs to the rlrrht
of hla seat and In front were all of his
counsel. He devoted more attention to his
youngest daughter than to anyone else, and
throughout the day took practically no part
tn the selection of Jurors. Many men In
similar jeopardy, as a rule, make close
study of their prospective Jurors and fre
quently express their personal preference,
but Haywood seems content to leave the
matter entirely in the hands of his lawyers.
Haywood gave no sign of any feeling or
emotion, but sat quietly throughout tho
day. Mrs. Haywood and the oldest daugh
ter stood the ordeal apparently well, but
the younger child cried after the examina
tion of talesmen began. Mrs. Haywood
and her children did not attend the after
noon session. . , . -
Defense Takes Wide Hanae.
Tho questioning of the defense took a
much wider, range than that of the state
and Its most striking feature dealt with
the possible effect upon the minds and atti
tudes of jurors of the letter of President
Roosevelt In calling Haywood and his as
sociates "undesirable cltlsens," the speeches
In Idaho of Secretary Taft, the messags
of Governor Gooding to the legislature of
Idaho, the speech in Boise of Senator Key
burn, the action of the Idaho legislature In
passing a resolution appropriating money
for the prosecution of the three prisoners.
Mr. Richardson, who conducted the ex
amination of the talesmen, was also par
ticular to ascertain their attitude toward
socialists and members of labor organlxa-'
tlons and whether they could give them a
fair trial. He was also anxious to know If
they had and professlopal, personal, fra
ternal, religious or political affiliations with
any of the counsel for the state, any con
nection with detective agencies, any experi
ence ln the pursuit or prosecution of crim
inals, or were members of the Mine Own
ers' association. Richardson also asked If
they had contributed to any fund for the
prosecution of the prisoners; If they were
members of the Cltlsens' alliance. If they
remembered the old labor troubles ln Idaho
and If they had taken sides In the labor
troubles at any time.
A remarkable feature of this examina
tion was that all the taleamen questioned
by the defense swore that they had not
been Influenced by the letter of President
Roosevelt or the speeches of other officials
of the national and state governments, and
a majority of them said they were repub
licans. Concern of the Prosecution.
The chief concern of the counsel for tha
state tn the examination of talesmen as In
dicated by their quectiona was their atti
tude toward circumstantial evidence, the
absence of the acused from the state when
the crime was committed, the effect of tha
manner In which prisoner and his oompan-.
Ions were brought from Colorado, view of
the talesmen to the death penalty for mur
der In the first degree and union labor.
They also questioned each talesman as to
his acquaintance with the murdered gov
ernor with a view to disclosing friendship
orenmlty. Their examination brought out
the fact that certain labor and socialists
papers are being distributed free of charges
In parts of Ada county
The custom of the Idaho courts In select
ing juries in criminal cases Is to cull twelve
men to the jury box and to keep the box
fuilfull by Immediately filling any vacancies
that ocur. The slate first conducts exami
nation that continues until twelve men have
been passed, when the body of talesmen
j pass to the defense for examination. The
state parsed twelve men cany mis arier
noon and the general examination la In the
hands of the derense. Of the eleven men
remaining In the box at the close of today'
seslon, only three have been pascd by both
sides. They have not been finally accepted
and sworn and are still subject to peremp
They are A. L. Ewlng. a carpenter and
veteran of the civil war; William Van Ors
dale, a grocer of Boise, and Samuel D.
Oilman, a farmer, who lives In thee ounty
ten ml es from Boise. Oilman served in the
Philippines with the Idaho volunteers. Un
der the law as recently amended each side
has ten peremptory challenges.
Judge Wood announced that he intended
to give both sides a wide latltuds ln the
examination of talesmen. He also s',"wd
a wllllngrie's to grant challenges where
there seemed any reasonable objection to
the atltude of the taleamen and In ths one
contest of the day he ruled with the de
fense, which had challenged the talesmaa
and was resisted by the state.
