April 20.—Tho keon Pfl inttTost If manifested In th«- dlw-patrh<-s nfi-rrlnK to the UuBalan squadron, hut tho admiralty claims to kfi as much In tho dark as tho-public regarding the plana of tho admiral. The report that part of tho Bquadron was siKhtPd off Hong Kong la not credltt'd here, however. The main question now agitating tho ■aval offlcors Is whether Rojcstvensky will elect to proceed northward through the straits of Formoaa or ¥ear oit Into the Pacific through Bashl channel (south of tho Island of For-Bosa) c- Ballngtang channel (north of the Island of Luzon.) The conviction is growing stronger that the Japanese heavy division is •oncentratlug close to the Bhores of Japan and It is also believed that Admiral Togo will decline to give battle In the opr^n sea. This is what the admiralty officials hope for, as It sincerely believes Rojefltvensky would kave more than an even chance if the two squadrons lined up in an open fi^ht. The admiralty has no confirmation •f the reported cutting of tho cable •onnectlng Formosa with the Chinese mainland at Foochow. Ruaaians Still at Kamranh Bay. Toklo, April 20—Although not reported directly, li Is believed that the Russian second Pacific squadron continues the occupation of Kamranh bay, or some other port of Annam, where H is expected to remain until joined by the third Russian Pacific squadron. The report that Admiral Rojestvensky is maintaining a patrol and examining neutral shipping oft Kamranh bay increases th»" irritation toward France for permitting tho use of that port as » base of operations. The Japanese government continues lilent renHnliug tho representations on the .'iiibject which have been made to France. The press, however, continups its s&ltation ai;alnsl France, demanding vigorous aciiou. Transport Service Interrupted.

Argumtnta Mada by Judge Qoodrlch and Ltwia B. Carr. Albany, April 20.—Arguments for the defense of Stipreme Court Justlre Warren B. Hooker wore presontcd Im fore the assembly Judiciary commit tee, which has for scvaral weeks boon Investigating Justice Hooker's con duct In connection with the imstofflcesi varlou» at Frcdonia and Dunkirk. Tho arguments were made by JuiIr"-William N. Ooodrirh of Hrooklyn ami Lewis n. Carr of Albany of counsel for JURtico IIookiT. Judge Gwxlrlrli devoted hia argwinentH to tho consil tutlonal asperlH of the question, while Mr. Carr discussed the various aciH which have been the subject of crit Icism. Mr. Carr pointed out that If the com mittee decided to do anything it would bo establlshlnK a precedent and should proceed only after groat deliberation He pictured tho political evil which might resujt If the legislature us sumed t o ¡)rP8crlb(> th(" raiises for which judicial offlcors might be re moved. The fact that this was a rase In which no charges had boon brought forward and no one appeared as the public prosecutor, was the subject of considerable argument on his part "I'll assume," he said, 'that If the Jamestown Dar association thougiu Justice Warren B. Hooker unfit to be a judge they would have been nianl.v enough to come out in the open and make a charge." He said that while supposing that there were no charges and that the committee was simply investigating, the counsel for the committee. Henry B. Coman, had suddenly become prose cutor and tho Investigation had virtually been tranaiormed into a trial, Th« inference that there was any conspiracy between Frank P. Ball and Justice Hooker was denied by Mr. Carr, who declared that there was no evidence lo support such a contention Speaking of the witness Tiffany, who was charged by Ball with offering certain rewards If Hall would givo out Something which ho knew In relation to Justice Hooker, and which was ili nied by Tiffany. Mr. Carr said 'H spoke with Ihe guile of a srrin-nt that he might sever the relailous tietw<'<n Ball and Hooker " Mr. Carr sim iu some linie in argn ing that there was no pecuniarv in terest in the appoiuinic tu of Hall 11' showed that Mrs Honker lo Ihi' Frodonia Nailoiia! irtnk a laiuf aiii'umt of oil slock to n lea^i' hiT fnuii h' r obllgalinns wiih ihi' l>aiil;. iiuluiliiiu the Hall noie wliicli she ha.i rii.iors'-ii Mr Carr in.-¡.-'''•il tha' r^- wa-nothiiig to >-liow 'lieic wa-^ aii\ au!'-'-ment or utiii'i-lainliiig liriw.'iT. ii.ill and Hooker i|i;ii ili.- salar\ r-ci'hnl Stock Transfer Tax Measure Becomes a Law.

Albany, .\pril 20 The stock trans for tax bill was signed as chapter 241 of the laws of i;>0.",. by Ciovernor Higpins early last evening. In leas than six hours before It would have become a law without his signature by the constitutional limitation of 10 days after its passage. The bill is one of two revi-nue tax bill» passed as Republican party moas ures. It imposes a tax of 2 cents upon each tlOO or fraction thereof of par value of corporation stock securllifts. domestic or foreign, sold or otherwise transferred within this state after June 1. 1905, • whrthor made upon or shown by the books of the association, company or cor]>oratlon. or by assign ment in blank, or by any delivery, or by any paper or agreement or memorandum or other evidence of transfer j or sale, entitling the holder in any manner to the benefit of such stock or ^ to secure the future payment of money I or the future transfer of any stock." Agreement.s referring to mere de- | posit of stock as collateral security for money loaned, are expressly exempted To Be Paid by Adheaiv« Stamps. The manner of paying the tax is prescribed like that of the similar fed eral Spanish war revenue tax—by ad heslve stamps to be purchased of tho state comptroller, and affixed to the ct'rtlflcaie or the agreement or memorandum of transfer, or to the corporations' books If tho transfer Is made thereon .No transfer is to be complete or legal without the required stamps affixed The governor signed also the companion bill estat)llshing as forgery In the third degree under the penal code any counterfeiting of tho revenue stamjts by the atlixing of which the tax Is to l)e paM Tins beconi.-s chapter 2 4-' Various » -'im.i'es are made as to the amount of money which this tax will prod'ice At 'he hearings on tho bill before 'be ¡• iJislatiire It was stated by a repre>« n'ativ« of the Nt w York and Consoliil.i W'd S'tx'n.
