Schwab May be a witness to show that vital deals were not known to All directors new charges affect former official. Charles m. Schwab president of the corporation and director in several other Large concerns is Likely to be called As a witness before the grand jury which will be asked by District attorney Whitman to Day to indict three officials of the Carnegie Trust company. Or. Schwab is not expected to throw any Light on the transactions by the so called Cummins group of financiers who obtained control of the Carnegie Trust by purchasing the Stock holdings of the late c. C. Dickinson but his presence before the grand jury May be required to prove the charge of forgery which or. Whitman will enter against the three Carnegie Trust company officials who he believes should be held criminally responsible for the wrecking of the institution. This forgery charge it was Learned yesterday can Only be substantiated by showing that certain transactions vitally affecting the solvency of the institution were kept from the knowledge of the Carnegie Trust Board of directors. Or. Schwab freely admitted yesterday that he knew Little or nothing about the inside affairs of the Carnegie Trust company and certainly nothing about the Large Loans to the Cummins Syndicate and to Joseph g Robin secured respectively by stocks and Bonds of the various Cummins enterprises and the various Robin enterprises. He was a director of the Carnegie Trust company however during the time when the Large Loans on questionable collateral were being made. Or. Schwab tendered his resignation As a director in the Carnegie Trust company about two years ago but it was not accepted. The prestige of his name was too badly needed by the officials of the Carnegie Trust so or. Schwab was informed that his fellow directors would not consider his resignation for a moment. He was then and still is one of the group of wealthy financiers known in the financial District As a a Andrew Carnegie a or. Shwab was at his Home on Riverside drive when asked yesterday by a times reporter if he had been notified that he might be called As a witness before the grand jury. Or. Schwab said that he had received no such notification. Quot i really know nothing about the company s he said. I resigned As a director of the Carnegie Trust company two years ago but they did not accept my resignation i believe. There is nothing i can say regarding the matter absolutely no Hing because i am in ignorance of the inside affairs of the the manner in which or. Schwab became a stockholder and director in the Carnegie Trust company was this when the massive Safe Deposit vaults were ordered to be installed in the basement of the United states realty building at 113 Broadway just under the Carnegie Trust company which occupies one Side of the ground floor the contract was Given to the Bethlehem steel corporation of which or. Schwab is president. In due time the great Armor steel safes were installed. When it came time to pay for them or. Schwab was asked to accept Stock in the Carnegie Trust company in part payment. This he agreed to do and a Large Block of Stock a was transferred of his name. Or. Schwab is reported to have sold some of this Stock Long before the Carnegie Trust came to be known in banking circles As a shaky institution. New charges reach Whitman. Such efforts at consolidation were made by the Syndicate of Bankers headed by William j. Cummins not Long after they obtained control of the Carnegie Trust. Although these efforts were Well known in financial circles at that time the inside Story of what really occurred or at least Whert purports to be the inside Story has just come to the ears of District attorney Whitman and Bis staff of investigators and has started a new line of inquiry which May Lead to disclosures not touched upon before. According to this Story a former official in the state banking department received an offer of a 25 per cent interest in the Independent fertilizer company one of the Cummins concerns if he would Aid the plan to consolidate the Carnegie Trust company with several other banking institutions. It was the plan at the time to consolidate the Carnegie Trust with the Van Norden Trust company the nineteenth Ward and the twelfth Ward Banks. When the Cummins group obtained control of the Carnegie they gave notes to the late c. C. Dickinson which purport to be for the Purchase of Stock in each of the three above named institutions which were to be absorbed by the Carnegie Trust company. When the plans for the consolidation were ready As the Story goes a lawyer representing the banking department official in question received a Check for and $2,000 in Cash. Subsequently it is Aid he travelled in a private car to Nashville Tenn., and while there said he would have to have More Money. Whatever May have been the nature of the alleged negotiations one fact stands m a Clearvy the proposed consolidation of y Ltd Carnegie Trust with the Van Norden i list the twelfth and the nineteenth Ward Banks was not allowed by the banking department. Just what is to be done about the matter has not yet come out. But it was reported yesterday that a photograph had been made of the $10,000 Check in question and that this photograph May be expected to find its Way int the grand jury room to Day or later on i the investigation. More Loans investigated. An inspection of the Stock books of Tho Independent fertilizer company is expected to be made later by or. Whitman s investigators. Stock in this company figures prominently on the books of the Carnegie Trust company As Security for Loans to Cummins and his friends. One demand loan secured by this Stock shows the makers name As George in. Dyer. The amount was $39 1.000. This is regarded by the District attorney As another Dummy loan similar in some respects to the $230,900 loan to William Ferguson managing clerk for Liston l. Lewis a Carnegie Trust director and formerly counsel for the company. Or. Dyer is said to have been a clerk in the Carnegie Trust company when the loan was made. The note bore the names of the following endorsers William j. Cummins Charles a. Moore jr., Liston l. Lewis William a. Keener Martin j. Condon and George c. Crabbs All directors in the Carnegie Trust company. Or. Cummins was out of town Vester Dav. He has been stopping with his family at the Holland House for several continued on Page 2. To Cut off Albany adjournment and special session talked of to eliminate Sheehan. Albany n. Y., March 12.�?apparently satisfied that nothing Short of the withdrawal of William f. Sheehan can bring an end to the deadlock Over the election of a United states senator some of the leaders Are said to be considering the advisability of bringing about an Early adjournment of the legislature. One report has it that april 6, two Days after the time fixed for convening the extra ses Slun of Congress is being considered As a tentative Date. It has been suggested according to Capitol gossip that an Effort be made to Rush through As much important legislation As possible prior to adjournment leaving unfinished matters to be considered at an Early session which it is believed would be called by gov. Dix should adjournment be taken without breaking the senatorial deadlock. Should the legislature adjourn without electing a senator it is contended that the january caucus which selected or. Sheehan would not be binding and that another caucus could then be called to select a Compromise candidate. Some of the legislators Are even claiming that if a senator should be named his right to a seat would be disputed. Assemblyman Shortt of Richmond a lawyer says that this is the obvious deduction from the opinion Given some time ago by attorney general Carmody that the obligation to 44 take a ballot a every Day except sundays is a constitutional mandate. Or. Shortts Contention is that no Legal ballot can be taken in the absence of a quorum hence there really was no ballot in the View of the Law on the numerous occasions when the official records have shown that no quorum was present. Another ballot will be taken to Morrow with no quorum present As most of the legislators have arranged pairs until tuesday.

A watchman ordered Louis de Luca his brother Natala of 2,156 first Avenue and John Stefano of 218 East 108th Street out of the stable at 426 East 110th Street in which they were playing cards last night. When they refused to go he Drew a revolver and pressing the weapon against Louis de Lucas stomach pulled the trigger twice.

Do Luca had thrown himself on the floor again and was getting ready to die when the doctor got there. Cole Tore apart the Many a clothing to look for the wounds and two bullets dropped out of his shirt. They had not even broken the skin. The doctor suggested that the cartridges had not been loaded properly and the bullets therefore had not had Force behind them. He could not account for de Lucas escape otherwise.

Steamship agents in the Atlantic conference when asked yesterday about the Royal mall steam packet company starting the liner Avon for Cherbourg and Southampton via Bermuda on april 13 at a minimum first class fare of $67.50 said that this would not make any difference to the direct Atlantic liners. The Avon would leave new York on the 13th, arrive at Bermuda on the morning of the 15th, and sail the same night for Cherbourg where she would be due on april 23, which would make her time of passage ten Davs. /. At a present there is no contract Between the conference lines As the old agreement expired on feb. 28, and the new one has not been signed the Canadian Pacific railway having it is said refused to agree to the through rates for emigrants to the West and the division of the traffic from the continent of Europe to the United states and Canada.

Clemenceau. The letters by the former Premier of France giving his impressions of a visit to South America have aroused wide comment. They Are of unusual interest. Read what he says in next sundays men killed in firemen a strike special to the new York times. Washington March 12.�?col. Roosevelt s collection of skins and Bones gathered on his Hunting trip to Africa is not to be the great feature in the National museum tha had been expected by some persons. An official statement by the authorities of the smithsonian institution to Day shows that of the thousands of specimens sent and brought Back by the former president Only about fifty Are to lie mounted and put on Public exhibition. The others will be preserved and kept but they will be put in storerooms and be shown Only on request to those who Are specially interested in such matters. The statement of its plans was drawn from the institution by a complaint made by col. Roosevelt when lie passed through Washington on wednesday on his Way to Atlanta. He had evidently become restive Over the delay in putting his trophies on exhibition. Although some of them have been at the museum for almost a year not one has yet been mounted and less than Twenty have been prepared for mounting. At the railway station Here col. Roosevelt remarked sharply to a group of newspaper men 44 those specimens which Are now lying in the National museum were brought Here for the american people. They should be mounted and put on exhibition immediately and Congress should be prevailed upon to make an appropriation for the the institution issued its statement today with the explanation that erroneous ideas existed As to the Progress of the work of preparing the skins and As to their final disposition. The statement says fifty specimens to be mounted. The statement of the smithsonian institution is As follows a a it is not intended to mount All the specimens in the collection and place them in the exhibition Halls of the museum. To do so would be a serious detriment to the collection and no advantage to the Public. The collection contains about 8,000 skins of mammals but not More than fifty different kinds could be detected among them by an untrained observer. The general Public would Only be fatigued and confused by an inspection of the entire series. The fur of mammals fades More or less on exposure to Light and on that account also it is far from desirable to exhibit rare or unique specimens in a Strong Light. Only those species will be selected for mounting which Are not now adequately represented or which Are needed to supplement the various series now shown. In this Way duplication will be avoided and the interests of both the naturalists and the general Public will be furthered. A a the larger skins have been tanned and made soft so that they can be folded and put away like blankets. When in this condition they can be easily handled and studied in detail and they Are readily available to persons having a special interest in african mammals. A a the collection has not been stored away and Given no further attention but is being prepared with All possible skill and dispatch and the utmost care is being exercised to prevent any portion of it being damaged through Accident. It is owing to the innumerable details of the work that Progress appears to be slow. A a the first step was to get the skins properly tanned but before this could be undertaken it was essential that they All be catalogued and so tagged that there would be no danger of losing the labels. Even after a Label had been devised which proud stand the Wear and tear the further precaution was observed of engraving the numbers on the hoofs and claws. The question then arose As to whom the delicate work of tanning the skins should be entrusted and to solve this a representative of the smithsonian institution was sent to the principal tanneries to investigate their facilities for handling the work. When this report was received those tanneries were chosen which appeared to be Best equipped and most nearly fireproof. The selection of first class taxidermists to supplement the regular museum Force consumed much time As men of the requisite ability Are scarce. A a finally there remains a phase of the work More important than any of the others As on it depends the True educational and scientific value of the entire collection. This is the classification of the. Specimens and the exact determination of their sexual individual and geographic variations. This Means months of study on the part of Edmund Heller who has this part of the work in hand. Before it is finished he will have to visit other museums in the United states and in Europe for the purpose of making comparisons of specimens. A a contrary to what seems to be a widespread belief few if any specimens Are to be Given away or exchanged. There was a time when one specimen of a kind was regarded by naturalists As sufficient for All purposes of study but that is no longer the Case. On the contrary Many specimens of each species Are essential to illustrate fully All the age. Sex and individual variations. For this reason the museum is constantly refusing requests from All parts of the country for gifts of specimens from the smithsonian african the authorities of the National museum make no attempt to fix the Date when this work will be completed. It May require two or three years or even More. They do say however that the work is being carried on More rapidly and with better results than has Ever been the Case with and collection approaching this one in magnitude and that nothing is being left undone to give this unique series of East african mammals its proper place among the treasures of the smithsonian institution. Officials of the institution and museum however received with enthusiasm the suggestion of col. Roosevelt that Congress should make an appropriation for the mounting of the specimens funds now available Are insufficient according to Secretary Charles d. Walcott and the other Heads of the institution. George s. Turner the taxidermist who is in charge of mounting All specimens for the National museum says that from $1,000 to $5,000 is needed for mounting some of the larger Luitpold is 90.bavarian Regent inspects birthday decorations in Munich on foot.

There were six deaths on Board the greek steamship Patris during the voyage from Piraeus which ended at this port yesterday. Or. A. Ii. Doty the health officer after a careful examination of the circumstances and an autopsy upon two of the bodies is convinced that in every Case death resulted from spinal meningitis. He ordered the vessel held in quarantine. The surgeons made a careful examination of every one of the 683 Steerage Pas sengers and found five of them suffering from meningitis.

Andreas Markao Tatos 80 years old and a amp Ali use Boneli 17, died on saturday a the vessel was nearing port. Their bodies were taken to Swinburne Island yesterday where the autopsies were held. The doctor of the ship was Aure that at least two of his passengers died of Pney Monla but after the autopsies and hearing the histories of their cases or. Doty believes All died of meningitis. He said last evening that in the last few years nearly every Case of spinal meningitis coming to this port was on a greek steamship showing the prevalence of the disease in some parts of Greece. A i have been making a careful study of this disease a a he said. 441 have been working in co operation with or. Simon Flexner of the Rockefeller Institute who has sent me his serum. I have found it successful except in cases where the disease had almost run its course and death was inevitable when it was Given. 44 the Patris brings in the most remarkable cases and i will personally supervise their care and treatment and make a careful study of them. I have carefully questioned the ships surgeon and those who had the care of the patients on shipboard and i wave reached the conclusion that in All cases death came from the same cause. The autopsies disclosed Clear symptoms of the or. Doty says there is no danger of meningitis running through the vessel As might be the Case with cholera or other contagious diseases. It appears in these cases to be confined to the group where it started and it is the belief of the doctors that the victims All came from the same part of Greece. The disease moves swiftly to the end and there is no proper Means of treating it on shipboard. It was said that except for the five suffering from meningitis there were no others sick on the vessel. Or. Doty however is not satisfied with the first examination. The Patris was anchored in quarantine All last night. This morning the health officer and his assistants will make another and a More thorough examination of both Cabin and Steerage passengers. The Patris sailed from Piraeus feb. 21, pythian and Kitamata feb. 22, and Patris feb. 23. She brought 106 Cabin and 683 Steerage for did t mean to run into me a says Small girl hit by a car.

Special to the new York times. Somerset ky., March 12.-Troubie following the strike of White firemen on the Queen and Crescent route of the Cincinnati Southern railway has resulted to Day in the killing of two Deputy sheriffs and four negro firemen in addition to the five already slain by sympathizers with the strikers. A third White Man a railway detective was shot on the engine he was guarding and May not live. The number of shots fired from Mountain sides As the trains were speeding by the conclusion that it was better not to the conclusion that it was better not to attempt to continue to run trains. All traffic along the Road from Somerset to Chattanooga is therefore at a standstill to night following the attacks on trains yesterday scores of Railroad detectives were mustered into duty and every freight and passenger engine carried at least two armed men. The first outbreak to Day occurred at glenmary Tenn. James Carl a detective on South bound freight no. 78, was picked out by Mountain marksmen As the train was making thirty Miles per hour and seriously shot Over the heart. Almost simultaneously the negro fireman whom Carl was protecting fell upon the pile of Coal he was shovelling with a Bullet through his brain. The injured Man was taken off at Oakdale Tenn., and rushed to the Hospital Here where he lies in a critical condition. The body of the negro was taken to Chattanooga. Ii. M. Holloway Deputy sheriff and Queen and Crescent Railroad detective was shot and killed about 8 of clock at the town of Stearns while on guard at the company a Coal chutes. About half an hour later Deputy sheriff Lovett who also was in guard at Stearns was found shot through the head. King s Mountain some distance from Stearns was the scene of a double killing at about the came time. Two negro firemen were shot from trains proceeding through the Village. Every station South of Here is lined with strike sympathizers and at every Stop even at water tanks armed men have examined engine cabs for negroes. Many of the latter Are kept at work by threats of the detectives. At stops along the line they Are hid in the tender while the White men stand Cuard. All along the line the Mountain sympathizers with the firemen Are stationed within shooting distance of the Railroad track and every train that passes is fired upon. Warning that Bridges would be dynamited has indirectly reached the officials of the Road and this Rumor coupled with the constant danger under which they Are working since the strike opened thursday to night brought the engineers to the Point of quitting the throttle. They have notified the officials that the risk is too great and they will not move a wheel even under guard. Brakeman on the line also delivered an ultimatum in which they said that unless the company took Steps to remedy the situation at once they would strike in sympathy with the firemen. Several machinists of this City who have been discharged because they refused to take the places of the strikers have appealed to their Union and As a result the machinists May follow suit. The Queen and Crescent to night issued orders that no negro be placed on duty North of Chattanooga and the employment of White strik Breakers is urged. The latter however Are no longer in evidence for the mountaineers have made too evident their intention to Aid the cause of the firemen. Thus far not a single assailant of any of the eleven men killed has been apprehended. The wild confusion of the country Between Somerset and Chattanooga has made it easy for men to shoot from ambush and be lost sight of before a Trace of them could be gained. Most of the detectives employed by the Road Are City men and Are not prepared for the style of fighting under which they have been thrown.
