Most ' "Exciting Sport to be Found in Kockies. TTE GREAT WOLF CATCHER COLORADO SPRINGS, Col., April 14. With guns cleaned and oiled, am munition, shootine clothes and camp ing kit inspected and approved and crowds left behind President Roosevelt is ribw well started on his quest of the most exciting sport to be found in the Rockies. His special train reaching here at 7:30 p. m. pulled out over the Colorado Midland two hours later. The reception was but a repetition of those jiven him at every point since leav ing Washington. By special request there was no programme arranged in the nature of a public demonstration. but this did not prevent several thou sand persons from gathering at the Santa Fe depot to cheer the president's arrival. He was compelled to acknowledge the greeting. He com - itv and with undisguised pleasure told them how much he expected to enjoy himself during the next two or three weeks. And, like his farewell to the people of Frederick, Okla., before starting on his wolf chase, he said he liked his fellow citizens but not on a hunting trip. Weather conditions have upset so many plans macte tor me presi - dent's pleasure that it is not certain now just where and when the presi dent will go into camp. It may be that he will be compelled to wait at Glen - wood Springs until Monday as reports lrom New Castle today are to the ef fect that the snow is too deep to make the hunt safe for man or beast. The outfits selected for the president's party, however, are madeto withstand storms and the president s Colorado hunting companions have been informed that anything they can stand would not frighten their distinguished guest. P. B. Stewart, who has charge of the arrangements for the hunt, met the president's train at Pueblo and was a guest on the train from that point on. t)ther distlnguisned Coloradoans were Governor McDonald and his adjutant general, who met the train at Emory Gap and presented the president with an engrossed hunting license, giving him unlimited authority td lull any came he comes across in Colorado. lhat is Mat . all.. He informal tne an expert taxidermist will be located at Glenwood to take care or, any pelts that may be sent in from the hunting - tamp. .. The president's party had dinner o the train before reaching this city. When the train pulled into the depot here, the crowd was kept at a respectful distance by a force of regular and extra policemen augmented by the Colorado Springs post of the G. A. R, the members of which formed an aisle to automobiles in waiting to take the president and a few members of his party to the home of Mr. Stewart, where the hunting outfit had been accumulated. . At Mr. Stewart's house the president met a number of members of "his Rough Rider regiment, who had been - unable to attend the reunion at San Antonio. His greetings to his old comrades was full of feeling and every bit as demonstrative as when ,lie was among those assembled at San lAntonio a few days ago. This combined duty and pleasure performed the president Immediately went to work In getting fitted out with clothes Vhlch was accomplished with great merriment. The boots especially procured for the president were more than a size too small, but when he found a pair of Mr. Stewart's that fitted to a tee he confiscated thum .without a word. The party returned ta the depot over B different . route and entered the special train about 9 o'clock. The pilot train was ordered out at once and five minutes later the president's train followed a little ahead of schedule time. When the train pulled out of Manitou tonight the moon was well up and the lights In the train were all turned out In order togive the party that grand est of all scenes, the snowcapped Rockies by moonlight. The party stayed up until Ute Pass was reached where the altitude is from 6,600 to 9,000 fet. At daylight the train will be very close to Hell Gate, and at Busk an al titude of 10,944 feet will be reached which is the highest point reached by tiny standard gauge transcontinental railway. It is expected that the president will go forward to the cab of the locomo tive and ride the decline through the Gate. The president in his speech at Tex line spoke as follows: "I want to grtct the people of Texas gathered here and to say good by to all the good people of Texas; ulso want to say that I appreciate to the limit the kindness I have been treated with in Texas. It has been to me the greatest pleasure to go through this great state. Two years ago I went to the Pacific slope. I have been to the North, South, Eust and West In this gret country of ours and while there is a slight .difference between the people In one place and another I am sure the fundamental thing that strikes me wherever I go, Is, that down at the bottom, if you can get at him, the average man is a pretty decent fellow. J believe about all that Is necessary to get one, American to know another Is to have them get on well. ' . "In government there !s riot any remarkable brilliancy needed. What Is needed in government is the exercise of good qualities, that we have the same qualtles that make a good husband or neighbor. That Is the type we have in. our representatives. We are jolng to have success. We can't afford to barter such qualities, as honesty, us ourage, or common sense , for any imount of brilliancy of genius. We eed In public life, as well as In private life, the same qualities that have teen needed since history began. "A man haot the right stuff In him if he is honest so that you can deal wth him on a square basis if he is T'. - ty. TT Tie "has got common sense and if he has not you can't do any tiling with him. He is going to make a decent man in public life and a de cent man private life." GREETED BY THE GOVERNOR. Emory Gap, Colo., April 14. Gover nor McDonald, accompanied by his staff, met President Roosevelt three miles south of the state line, and welcomed him to Colorado. The. formal 2 - 1 pptimrsj nvpr MrDonald Dresented Mr. Roosevelt with a license to hunt in tne state. The governor wm go as iar as Colrado Springs with the president His staff officers returned to Denver on the special train which brought them to Emory Gap. Texline, Texas, April 14. Presi dent Rosevelt has made his last stop in Texas and will soon' be in the big game country. Last night he called the entire party into his. private car Rocket, and for an hour or more talk ed about his five days' hunt in the Kiowa country. He will never forget his chase after coyotes and will never get done talking about the exploits of Abernathy,' the wolf catcher, whose performances thrilled the blood of the president and the other easterners who participated in the hunt. A member of the hunting' party had the following to say about the five days' sport: "It was simply great. No president of the United States or doctor from New York or any general of the army ever had such fun before. I was in the saddle from sunrise to sundown each day. We were provided with splendid horses and the wolves were splendid, too, and there was some thing doing all the time. I must tell you about the ten mile run we had the longest chase of the hunt and by far the most exciting. It was a corker. "The president started in at the tail of the bunch, but he saved his horse and was the first man at the finish. Lieutenant Fortesque was next and then came Dr. Lambert. That man Abernathy, who fearless ly catches them alive, , is a wonder. You should have seen him work. As soon as the wolf was thrown, Abernathy got, it by the legs with one hand, while with the other, he grabbed the lower jaw, forcing his hand back into the mouth of the coyote until his little finger was just behind the back teeth. Abernathy could then do as he pleased with the wolf. On one occasion he caught one of the animals, threw him over his saddle and tied his mouth with a piece of wire. This was on his way back to the camp. Starting another coyote, he chased him six miles and got up with him, effecting the capture. He rode into the camp with two kicking, squirming, snarling coyotes thrown over hip saddle." . The president's camp at Panther Springs "was an ideal one. It was ! pitthed t ; point vljere. Ur deep Je. put up for the1 party. Quanah Parker and his five wives and. other members of the Kiowa and Comanche tribes visited the camp. As is the Indian custom, names were given the: pale fa,pa. The Dresident was called, "biff chief," General Young, "war bonnet," Dr. Lambert, "medicine man," and Lieutenant Fortesque, young - man - afraid - of - his - horse." President .. Roosevelt's immediate party now consists of Secretary Loeb, Dr. Lambert, and Lieutenant Fort esque. Secretary Loeb announced tnis morning that 'the temporary white house would be establi.shed at Glen wood Springs instead of Red Stone as originally planned. VICE - PRESIDENT HYDE HAS REFUNDED MONEY i Not Only That Which Was Paid Out of Cambon Dinner But $122,000 Additional, NEW YORK. April 14. Vice Pres ident James H. Hyde of the Equitable Life ' Assurance society, according to reliable information has refunded to the society not only the money paid out of the Equitable treasury for the Cambon dinner, but also $122,000 rep resenting, it is said, a small part of the Equitable's loss in securities un loaded on the society by two under writing syndicates of which Mr. Hyde was a member. This $122,000 represents, it was said today, only Mr. Hyde's proportionate share of the loss - to the policy holders. Other directors of the organization, how many of them was not learned, were interested in the underwriting deals, but none of them, It was declared, has so far followed Mr. Hyde's example in the matter of reimbursing the society's treasury. A. Edward Woodruff, a lawyer representing Henry G. Hull of Philadelphia, and "all other policy holders similarly situated,'' obtained from Justice Scott in the supreme court today an order directing the officers and directors of the Equitable society and the state superintendent of insurance to show, cause why they should not be enjoined from further proceedings as regards the approving and filing of the proposed amended charter. The order Is returnable next Thursday. The hearing In the Lord Injunction suit scheduled for this morning In the supreme court In Brooklyn was adjourned Until next Monday by consent of counsel representing all parties In the action. CHASED TO ROOF BY SHERIFF. Needed Witness Used Desperate Means to Avoid Summons BALTIMORE. April 14. Miss Mattle Thompson, In her efforts to prevent 0 deputy sheriff strvlng a summons to appear as awltness In the divorce suit of Mrs. Clarissa Mabbltt,' today gave the officer a lively chase to the roof of an aparatment house on MatHson' avenue. The deputy went to the house and was told Miss Thompson would soon be down. Becoming Impatient, the officer went to her room, only to find It va cant. A step - lndder leading to an open skylight gave hlrn an Inspiration, and he hurried to the roof. After dodging around several big chimneys he saw the flutter of a white gown and a mo ment later rend the summons to Miss Thompson on the roof. The' sheriff also had difficulty In finding other wltmesse. THE FLEET British Steamer was Signalled by the Baltic Squadron and Questioned as to Destination. SHIPS IN GOOD CONDITION HONG KONGV April 14. The Brit - is:h steamer Poona, which has arrived here, reports that she sighted the Bal tic fleet last Tuesday. A cruiser was detached from the fleet and signalled the Poona inquiring her name, cargo and destination. The warship steamed close to the Poona, but did not inter fere with her. The cruiser was cleared for action and looked business - like. Her decks were crowded with men. The whole fleet looked serviceable and able to give a good account of itself. It sailed in good formation. Three scouts were astern. Only eight tor pedo boat destroyers accompanied the fleet. . The government has notified coast ing vessels that the Russian fleet is expected to pass soon and that they must be careful to show their lights. Nothing can be learned here of the movements of the Japanese fleet. British naval oflicers seem to have no more information concerning it than the public. It was seen a month ago, but has not been sighted since except an occasional scouting cruiser, which did not signal the shore. The idea pre vails that Admiral Togo is in the For mosan channel but this is merely, an inference. MANY WOUNDED ON OREL. Manila, April 14.

Telegrams from Pensacoia, where the North Atlantic squadron Is engaged Just now In target practice, deny the reports of largo desertion from the navy there. On the contrary the number of desertng blue Jackets has been smaller this year than in any year since the vessels have practiced at that port. ' Less than one hundred are missing from the ships and these "are possibly caused by the fact thut the vessels are engaged in target practice, which the metf dislike very much, owing to the jar and concussion from the big guns.

The automobile vogue has struck a blow to. the glove manufacturers of Fulton county.

' The manufacturers of this city ' and Gloversville are discharging many of their expert glove cutters, the highest paid salaried laborers In the country, because no hides can be secured for them to work upon. The manufacturers here say that the price of fine gloves will be advanced materially on account of the scarcity of hides. EXPLOSION ON BOARD PRESIDENT'S YACHT Boiler Tubes Blew Out While Off Cape Hatteras Two Seamen Burned; One Quite Severely. NEWPORT NEWS, Va., April 14. The "president's yacht" Sylph was towed into Hampton Roads in a crip pled condition by the El Cid. Two of the yacht's boiler tubes blew out yes terday while she was off Cape Hatteras. The yacht, upon arrival at Old Point signalled the Norfolk navy yard by wireless and the tug Mohawk was sent to tow the Sylph to the yard. Here Lieutenant F. T. Evans, commander of the vessel, said that T. F. Mnrphy, a first class machinist, was . severely burned on the face and hands, and that J. J. Dalton, a seaman, was similarly burned by the blowing out of the two boiler tubes. The men will recover and did not have to be sent to the naval hospital. Lieutenant Evans said that Mrs. Roosevelt left the yacht at Jacksonville on Saturday last and on Wednesday the Sylph, which called at Charleston, sailed from that port. That night a severe gale made much trouble. The Sylph passed the Diamond Shoal light ship at 2:30 o'clock Wednesday morning. Two hours later the ' explosion occurred and the yacht was anchored. "Soon, In answer to our signals," said Lieutenant Evans, "the schooners of the New York mackerel fishing fleet surrounded us and stood by all night, doing everything they could to pre serve us from harm. Shortly after the accident the United States Fruit company's steamer Oter, bound for Balti more, hove in sight. Answering our signals for help she signalled 'we are not a tow boat' and passed on." Lieutenant Evans said he was in formed here that the Oter proceeded up Chesapeake bay without signalling that there was a vessel in peril outside. He and Mrs. Evans, who was with him aboard, are highly indignant at the fUer's action. The tlfutenant - satrr'he would report - - tiro - matter to Washing ton today. . The Morgan liner El Cid came along' late yesterday, picked the Sylph up and towed her in here. MRS.

DUN'S REVIEW OF THE TRADE OUTLOOK Easter Business of Large Volume and Shiping Departments Taxed to Their Full Capacity. NEW YORK, April 14. Dun's Review of Trade tomorrow will say: Good news still predominates in trade and industry. Easter business is of large volume, dry goods, clothing, footwear and all lines of wearing apparel reporting an unusually good demand, and shipping departments are taxed to their full capacity In many cases. The country au a whole is experiencing more settled weather, which is reflected on a. better retail distribution of merchandise. Jobbing trade in goods for fall delivery is broadening, and there is more inclination to prepare for the future. Manufacturers report less idle machinery, the iron and steel industry leading with an unprecedented output of pig iron, yet consumption is also above all records, for there is no accumulation at the furnaces. Textile mills are also well engaged, as a rule, and forwardings of footwear from Boston make favorable comparisons with every year except 1900. Many steel mills are several weeks behind with deliveries, and in some cases contracts are not taken where shipment is desired before July 1 Pressure is especially noteworthy in all lines of railway - supplies, particularly light rails. Billets and cut sheet, bars are only obtainable by the payment of a considerable premium where quick delivery is necessary. - Aside from these special orders, there . are no changes in quotations, inflation being vigorously resislied by the large Inter ests that desire stability "and perman ent activity. - " Textile industries are making good progress, increased trade with job bers affecting all departments. Scarci ity of many lines accentuates the independent attitude of sellers, and tho steadiness, of raw cotton strength - .'lis prices of goods. Manufacturers are able to securo enhanced quotations In many cases where prompt shipment is essential. There is some disposition to accept contracts for future delivery at current figures, but this class of business is almost confined to exports. Orders from China are reported for as remote a date as next March. The home trade Is more conservative and there is little inclination to speculate, although Jobbers stocks are the lowest In many seasons. Manchester mills have their capacity so fully engaged that some of the British export trade is being, diverted in this direction, and n some cases orders for direct ship ment to England are received. In the woolen goods market the condition of the' men's wear trade Is expected to continue quiet until a 'more complete canvass has been made - by clothiers. More quiet conditions in the west ern hide markets have not produced weakness, supplies being limited, par ticularly of good qualities. Commercial failures this week in the United States are 214 against 232 last week; in Canada 20 against 2 last week: COMMISSION 8EES TAFT. Will Make an Inspection of the Work 'on Panama Canal. WASHINGTON. April 14.

FAREWELL TO CHOATE Bench and Bar of. England Banquet American Ambassador in Great Hall of Lincoln s Inn. LORD HALSBURY'S TOAST LONDON, April 14. "I have been to many gratifying functions, but never to one which equalled this." In these words Ambassador Choate summed up to a reporter the impression made upon him by the farewell entertainment given hlin by the bench and bar of England tonight. The dinner was served in the great hall of Lincoln's - Inn. There were three hundred guests present, including Baron Alverstone, the lord chief justice; twenty - two judges of the high court of justice, a number of peers, other titled personages, the leading barristers and several members of parliament. Lord. Halsbury, in toasting the guest, attributed to him the best conception of the office of an ambussador. He said that Mr. Choate had been the apostle of the modern idea of diplomacy, an idea not based on force and duplicity, but on publicity and justice, perfectly , consistent with a determination to maintain his nation's rights. He had used his great influence, backed by the temper and honor of a gentleman, to prevent any tendency toward jealousy or hostility, and to promote good feeling between the nations. He was now returning, enjoying the honor and respect of his own countrymen and the love and affection of those he left he - hind. The company honored the toast standing and gave three cheers for Mr. Choate. In replying Mr. Choate said he accepted the tribute on .behalf of the American bench and bar and the great ambassadorial office he was abandoning. His diplomatic work in England had been made easy by the spirit in which he had been received. The two great representatives of England with whom he had to deal. Lord Salisbury and Lord Lansdowno, had made his path easy, not only because they practiced modem diplomacy, saying what they meant and meaning what they said, with never a card up any sleeve but because they always met him more than half way in all maters tend - , ing . to conciliation, harmony and union between the Unite4 Kingdom and , tho United States. This was easy for both them and him because the chiefs on both sides of the Atlantic, Queen Victoria and King Edward and Presidents McKinley and Roosevelt, had ' been every moment determined that the two countries should be friends. Be - , hind them was a mighty force giving . additional strength, namely the pco - ,ple. Both countries were determined that nothing should mar their friendship. Referring to thelegal side of the entertainment and the recent conferring of a benchership upon him, Mr. Choate drew interesting and humorous parallels betwen the American and English bars. He concluded Dy Buying that love for his professional brethren. in Great Britain would tempt him to return as often as he could.

Judge Samuel Ph;idley has adopted new methods In dealing with petty offenders and started today by sentencing James Burgess to "good behavior for life." In other words, the Judge put him on probation for the .' '. remainder of his life. , "I am going to do this right along," said the Judge. "Besides my twenty - s four years on this bench, I was clerk of this court twenty - nine years, and I . have studied the probation question.
