ALBANY, N Y, Jan 1&-In 24 hours, barring the unexpected, the next U S senator from New York will know o his selection. The choice will be made tomorrow night at a Joint caucus of the 115 democratic members of the state assembly. The unexpected would be a bolt by enough democrats to prevent the casting of a majority vote of all the legislators republican, democratic and independent whe'n both houses formally vote for a senator Tuesday. Tonight legislators believe the real contest will lie between William F. Sheehan and Edward M. Shepard. Of other candidates mentioned the most prominent are: Daniel F. Cohalen, Justice, James W. Gerard. Seymour Van Santvoor, D-Cady Herrlck of Albany and Alton B. Parker. No one could be found tonight who intended to present any of these names to the caucus. At the same time no one will deny that any of these five has not a chance in case of a deadlock between Sheehan and Shepard. Charles F. Murphy called on Gov Dix today soon after Mr Dix arrived from New York. Neither he nor the governor would say a word about their conference, however. An attempt was made tonight to verify a statement from one of the Tammany leaders who visited Gov Dix in New York yesterday, that Gov Dix had expressed a belief that Mr Sheehn's name would not be presented to the caucus tomorrow. But the governor could r.ot be reached, refusing absolutely to receive newspaper men. Notwithstanding the nearness of the final contest, an atmosphere of expectancy prevails here. Several delegations are arranging to call on Gov Dix tomorrow, and the friends of Mr Shepard have not abandoned hope that the governor will yet say something to strengthen theif side.

The wise smoker's favorite smoke today is Cram's Attack on Sheehan Defines the Issue Gov Dix Thought to Have Situation in Hand. NEW YORK. Jan 16-The focal center of the senatorial situation' was again transported to Albany today, when Gov Dix left town. And although the governor continues to maintain his attitude of silence and ''hands off" more and more, the conviction grows among leaders here who talked with him yesterday not only that the solution of the situation rests with mm that a public word from him would precipitate the final result, but that he knows it and withholds the word because he believes the outcome Is already in his grasp. In the clubs along 5th av, In the hotel lobbies, among the Tammany districc leaders, there is no longer any doubt that the democratic party confronts a crisis. J. Sergeant Cram, chairman of the general committee of Tammany Hall and long one of the trusted advisers of leader Charle3 F. Murphy, showed this today when he said: "Yes, I'm going to Albany tomorrow. I thlnK I have a right to be there in a crisis of the party perhaps at the extinction of the party. I've been waiting 1? years to see the democratic party In control, and I don't want to see it all thrown away in 17 days." It was Mr Cram's attack on William F Sheehan yesterday that narrowed all palterings to one sharp issue. Having slept on It, he found nothing to retract today, though here and there a point to add in explanation. "I like Billy Sheehan most amusing and agreeable fellow," he said. "As ccmpany, I prefer him, to Mr Shepard. In po.nt of fact, perhaps, there isn't so much to choose between their antecedents, but there is always this to remember: That if Mr Shepard were to bt elected, no suspicion would ever attach to his name; If you were to go Into the street and shout that he had been lifted into office by trickery or eased into it by cajolery or pressure of any sort, tnere would be nobody to listen to you. "Now, as to Billy Sheehan, I've Just said that I like him and all that, but anybody who doesn't know what Billy Sheehan represents well, he'd better go to school, that's all. "I think I know the governor's mind; I think it is pretty generally known; but it is not for mo to speak it for him, e: in-daily when I see no reason why he should not speak for himself." Richard T. Wiison, also of the general committee, and widely known as president of the Saratoga racing association, spoke to thf. same effect as Mr Cram. ABOUT EVENLY DIVIDED. DEATH LAYS LABOR BILL AUTHOR LOW Ex-OongressmanErdman of Allentown, Penn, Gone. Contest in New Jersey Between Mar-tine and Smith May Result in Deadlock and Third Man. TRENTON, N J, Jan 15 The democratic members of the legislature are expected to hold a conference here tomorrow night on the U S senatorship, but it is not likely to result in anything more than an interchange of views, as the hour set Is only an hour before both houses of the legislature will convene. The men who favor James E. "Martine are still opposed to the holding of a caucus, which would be binding upon those participating, as the supporters of James Smith Jr desire. A canvass of the democratic legislators divides the 52 democratic votes about evenly between Martine and Smith. This is interpreted by many as pointing to a deadlock, which may last for some time and finally result in the taking up of a third man. But Gov-Elect Wilson, In his Newark speeab last night, stated emphatically that under no circumstances could there be a compromise. He maintained that in order to keep grod faith with the people the senatorship must go to Mr Martine. DIAGNOSING YOUR CASE. 10c Eachor 3 for 25c MACK I N LAY'S V. O. B.

The funeral of Harlow Elliot Woodward, for many years prominent In the Boston drug trade and also as a publisher, an authority on coins and stamps, took place yesterday at Waterman's chapel in Roxbury, conducted by Rev James H. Holden, pastor of the First Universalist church of Roxbury. Burial was in the family lot in Forest Hills cemetery. The services were held at 1:15 p m and were attended by personal acquaintances and friends of the family. HARLOW E. WOODWARD. Mr Woodward had lived nearly all his life in Roxbury, where he was t In 1851 at the corner of Dudley and Dearborn sts, the old stand of his father, William Elliot Woodward, who was known in his day not only as a druggist, but also as a collector and dealer In rare books and documents and as an aufhority on New England and American history. Harlow Elliot Woodward has been regarded as one of the leaders in popularizing the druggist business in Boston by original ind modern methods and his name still survives in it, although he retired from the trade several years ago. Years ago Mr Woodward published successfully a magazine called the Old Curiosity Shop, which, acquired from him by Mr Curtis, became the lasis of the present Ladies' Home Journal. He was a man of much literary knowledge and taste, of original ideas and faculty for expressing them. He leaves a brother, Clarence E. Woodward of Melrose Highlands, four sons, Clarence B.t Howard H., Roy E. and Arthur C , and two daughters. Mrs George W. Priest and Miss Edith V. Woodward. Mrs Woodward died in 1909. Mr Woodward wrote much even in the closing months of his life, and among the sentlmentB frosu his pen were three marking the tUi, the 4iJ1h and the 60th milestones of life, .his last being particularly applicable to himself because he was 60 years of age, is as follows; "Sixty years, the age of strength of mind and heart and soul. The mind is now a storehouse of experience, where advice may well be sought by tnose who have their lessons still to learn. The heart, by Ioe kept voung, by grief, that come to all, made sympathetic, prompts gentleness toward all the world. The soul, enriched and purified by constant effort toward the right, makes life more stable by keep ing off the killing fear of deutli. Sixty years of friendly, useful living brings promises of happier years to come, cf greater victories to be won." The last sentiment from his pen was: "A word of praise a genius may raise from the pit of killing despair. While a word of blame may pot to shame a genius the world can't spare," MELBER TRIAL MR ASA SPADES' DAY OF REST WAS PUNCTUATED -.IJ-Jh-i s - i BY A FEW DREAMS AND ONE VERY HARD REALITY AT EARLY DATE i Case to Go to Grand By WALLACE GOLDSMITH.

FITCHBURG, Jan 16 Giuseppe Marolla, a laborer, 19 years old, was struck by an automobile while rifling a bicycle on Water st about 3 o'clock this afternoon and was killed almost instantly. The automobile was owned and driven by Dr Williajn It. MacAusland of 411 Marlboro st, Boston, who was on his way to this city accompanied by Dr G. W. Morse, also of Boston.

When nearly opposite a soap shop on Water st the bicycle veered across the street directly in the path of the approaching automobile, which was proceeding at a fair speed up the street on the right hand side.

RELIEVED BY DAY'S REST. Mrs Schenk, on Trial at Wheeling, W Va, Confident of Vindication the Coming Week. WHEELING, W Va, Jan 16-The day's rest waa welcomed by all concerned in the Schenk trial, especially to the defendant, Mrs Laura Farnsworth Schenk, who listened in court all last week to testimony brought out by Dist Atty -ianiilan in his prosecution of the charge that she administered poison to her husband, John O. Schenk. Although the accused stood the ordeal without being noticeably affected except on one or two occasions, she expressed lellef after today's rest. She still maintains confidence that her position will appear in a different light as the case proceeds. Mrs Schenk spent the day in her tower parlor cell in the Ohio county jail. Several hours were occupied in conference with her attorneys, planning for combating the expected moves of the state during the coming week, while scores of letters also received her attention. These missives come from every section of the country and are on every conceivable subject. All sorts of suggestions are made as to lines of defence to be followed, most of the writers being persons who have become Interested In the woman's welfare. The prosecuting attorney said today that he was satisfied with the progress the state had made. "We have established," he declared, "that the mineral water wnich Mr Sch.nk drank during his Illness, and medicine which was administered to him, contained a large quantity of lead and arsenic. We have shown that Mrs Schenk expressed to a detective nurse and others a wish that she might get rid of her huBband, and we expect to show during the coming week that she actually bought these arsenic and lead acetate." J. J. P. O'Brien, chief counsel for the defence, said: "We aucceeded in breaking down the testimony of Dr Frank L. Hupp, a principal witness for the state, and In establishing the fact that he was at no time sure of his diagnosis. We also secured the admission that Schenk was never as ill as had been claimed. We expect to prove that the wife and not the husband is the victim of conspiracy." An effort will be made during the week to discredit the testimony of Miss Zoeckler, a detective nurse, to the effect that Mrs Schenk offered her J1000 to give Schenk a poisonous pill while he lay ill at the hospital.

Burton, president of Smith college, was the preacher at Central Congregational church yesterday morning. Dr Burton in his sermon emphasized the universal need of the personal touch in affairs of moment and the effectiveness of personality in dealing with all persons. "It is impossible." he continued, "for us to understand how deep and how widespread is the hunger of human hearts today for the touch of another personality, of intimate relationships with another life. We are not so different as we think we are, there is one thing that is common to us all. we must have fellowship with others. "The widespread need in America today corner from the complexity of our life, because of the seemingly unavoidable demand of the business world, because of the multiplicity of our social obligations, because of the wheels within wheels. Little do we conceive of how human hearts today are hungering and thirsting for more adequate opportunities for self-expression. "Let us constder In the second place the effectiveness of the touch of personality. We must ask ourselves why is it that the world needs this touch of personality and why it is so effective? It cannot be stated with too much emphasis or with exaggeration that we must come to some adequate realisation of what personality is to life if wo would find the most effective methods of living. "And the truth that we must recognize in this whole realm Is this, that perse nality is social. There is absolutely no such thing as a person who is isolated and the meaning of our own perHonalitles, their largeness or their smalluess will be determined by the extent and the amount of our relationships to others." .

A statement Jssued by the state department today declares that the American legation at Guatemala City was so instructed because of "repeated complaints" that the Bonilla movement was "recving active aid and support in Guatemala and in view of information of the arming of the Hornet." The protected cruiser Tacoma has been ordered to join the gunboat Marietta In patroling the Atlantic coast of Guatemala and Honduras, and the Hornet will be "kept under surveillance." Senor Sanchez Latour, charge d'affaires of the Guatemalan legation here, tonight issued the following statement: "Referring to the complaints against the government of Guatemala the legation lif the latter in Washington states that it Is In receipt of advices denying the charges communicated to the department 'of state that it has countenanced any violation whatsoever or the Washington conventions. "AB a matter of fact, a large force of the regular army has been carefully PfUroling the Honduran frontier for a considerable period for the express purpose ef preventing such violation. The legation furthermore emphatically denies that the gunboat Hornet has either been armed within Guatamalan jurisdiction or has received any armament from that source." TO INTERCEPT 30NILLA.

"THE THREEFOLD BLESSING" Rabbi Leipziger Finds in It the Jewish Philosophy of Life Preaches at Temple Israel. At services yesterday morning at temple Israel Rabbi Emil W. Leipziger of Terre Haute, Ind, occupied the pulpit and spoke on "The Threefold Blessing." Rabbi Leipziser found In the threefold blessing the Jewish philosophy ef life. He said in part: "It makes us look beyond the sin and suffering and affirm the value of existence. It Implies the gift of vision to penetrate the mists and the mysteries and assert tirat life is worth living. "This age-long problem we touch many men of many times have pondered its lonely depths, and when no answer came to satisfy the longing that men have far harmony between the stern experiences of life and the hope within the heart of man, then they sometimes fell into the sloughs of despond and pessimism. "The Jew must answer the question of life's worth whileness, not Uke the poet who saw no imperfection in the universe, nor like the pessimist whote only comfort was the thought that we can end life when we wfH, but by turning in trust to God and asking the boon that he bless and keep us on the path of duty, that he give us but a gleam of his council and might, that he turn to us hiff benign countenance in love and peace. And even as we pray we w'll in our lives see the realization of that blessing and encompass the Jewish philosophy of life. "By such a world view the Jew must enrich his faith. The time has past whn there should he destruction. The dav has arrived when we shall rebuild the spiritual structure of Israel's faith. In thi3 alone we may be destructive, not In social life In Its larger aspect, not in political affiliations, but in faith; we must be unique, carrying through to the future the torch of faith by which our fathers lived and for which they died."

I At her request, however, a priest attended ner late last night in her celL The only person to see Mrs Melber to-day was an alienist, who visited her at the request of the district attorney. Neither the district attorney nor the Insanity expert wouid make any declaration concerning Mrs Melber's mental condition, but it is understood that the examination proved that she is sane. When Mrs Melber arose from her cot this morning after a restless night, she complained of a splitting headache. She said that her head felt as If it were encased in an iron band. She paced the floor of her little cell, moaning in apparently .dazed condition. One of the matrons administered a sedative and she passed the remainder of the day In sleep. She ate three meals but without relish. It Is the purpose of the prosecution to have her placed on trial as soon aa possible. Her case will be presented to the grand jury this week, when the coroner will have completed his inquest. Tne district attorney relies on the confession of Mrs Melber and the testimony of the drug clerk who sold her the carbolic acid with which she killed her child, to bring about a conviction. The drug clerk has identified Mrs Mei-ber as the woman who bought the acid in his store on Friday last.
