Roswell Miller, chairman of the board of directors of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad, was found dead In bed at his home, 19 East Sixty-second street, early Friday morning. He had suffered from apoplexy for several years, and It is thought he had a stroke in the night, dying without being able to call for as sistance. Mr. Miller has been In good health lately. He spent the holidays In his summer home at Mlllbrook, N. Y., and went to his office, 42 Broadway, on Thursday last as usual. Mr. Miller, who as chairman of the board of directors of the St. Paul took- a large part In raising millions which that road required for its Pacific coast extension, was born in Harford, Pa., October 28, 1843. He was educated In the pub lic schools and academy of that town, and when he left school he en tered the service of the Cairo and Vlncennes Railroad. His rise was rapid in that service, and he soon became secretary. Then he was ap pointed superintendent, and held that position until 1882, when he changed to the Chicago and Western Indiana Railroad, becoming second vice-president and treasurer. The next year he became assistant to the general manager of the Chi cago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Rail road; a year later he became gener al manager. In 1885 he was ap pointed general manager, and held this position for three years. Then he was appointed president and general manager of the St. Paul.

In 1899, he became chairman of the board of di rectors, 'being head of the New York office, the duty of which Is to direct .the finances of the road. The growth of the St. Paul to Its present importance occurred in the years that Mr. Miller was connected with it. The largest work which the road undertook with him In charge of the finances was the extension from St. Paul to Seattle. His wife, who was Miss Mary L. Roberts, of Now York, whom he married in 1893, survives him. Mr. Miller is survived by three sisters, all of whom live In Hones dale, namely, Mrs. E. F. Torrey, Mrs,, J. F.

Fifty-seven Republican members of the House of Jtepresentatlves held a Republi can caucus tonight or rather failed at holding it. Fifty-six Democrats did hold a caucus. Gathered In the Republican caucus were the Al legheny and Philadelphia County re presentatlves and a few others, while ninety-three Republicans and Wash ingtonlans stayed away. One hundred and 'four are required to elect and It Is taken for granted here that George E. Alter, of Alle gheny county has the ninety-three votes pledged. That number doesn't represent his main strength however, for Ave of the fifty-seven at the "Regular caucus" voted for Mr. Al ter after declaring that 'they would not he bound by the caucus result Four others, one of whom did not vote and two of whom voted for G. W. Allen, of Allegheny, and one for John R. K. Scott, of Philadelphia announced that they would not be bound by the result of the caucus That gives Alter 102 votes two short of the number necessary to elect. The only thing missing at the caucus of the regulars was the votes, John R. K. Scott was made the cau cus nominee for speaker. He made a speech and so did George Rich ards, of Allegheny, who placed Mr, Allen's name before the caucus and W. H. Wilson, of Philadelphia, who nominated Mr. Scott. Tho five Lackawanna Republican Washington members, and all of the other Northeastern representatives of that political faith stayed away from the caucus. Although contrary to expectations, although two cau cuses were held, those who partlci pated In the caucus will not organize the house. Death of Mrs. Laura Schenck. Laura Dibble, relict of H.
