John EL Kennedy, who is a trustee of the New-
York Public Library. was seen at his home |
last night by a Tribune reporter. He Paid that
he did not know the conditions of Mr. Carnegie's
offer which, he said, was a very handsome one. .
-I hope the city." he continued, "will take ad
vantage of the offer. I am sorry I was not
present when a deputation from the Board of
Trustees of the New- York Public Library called
on Mayor Van Wyck to-day to tell him about the
offer."
TIME FOR LEGISLATION.
GOVERNOR ODELI> SAYS IF NEW-YORK
WANTS THE LIBRARIES SHE CAN
HAVE TH EM-CONTROLLER
COLER'S VIEWS.
Albany. March IS ' .-Governor Odell
¦was attending the annual dinner of the Legis
lative Reporters' Association at the Hotel Ten
Kyck when the news was received of Mr. Came
pie's offer. Seated at the Governor's right were
Chief Judge Parker, of the Court of Appeals, and
Controller "Coler. of New-York.
Controller Oater had already informed Gov
ernor Odell and Judge Parker, and they had
been talking about the generous offer. °
"If New-York wants this she can have It,"
paid Governor Odell frankly upon being asked
his opinion as to possible legislation to enable
tho city to accept Mr. Carnegie's gift and guar
antee the maintenance of the libraries to be
established. The Governor raid, however, that
he would not send any special message to the
legislature urging action in the matter, since
eurh legislation ought to be requested by the
city itself, and be supported by the city mem
bers. When it had been approved by the legis
lature, if It was plainly desired by the city of
New-York, he would certainly approve Jt. The
legislature would be in session for at least a
month yet. and therefore there would be ample
time to pas=s legislation enabling New- York to
accept Mr. Carnegie's gift.
"The Library Commission." Controller Coler
said, "has already considered this offer of Mr.
Carnegie, and I think that there is a good
chance of his offer being accepted. There are
some difficulties in framing an act committing
the city to a permanent support of the Carnegie
libraries, but 1 think they can be overcome. In
deed, there is every token now that they have
been overcome."
Chief Judge Parker expressed his admiration
of Mr. Carnegie's great gift.
There were only a few of the New-York Sen
ators and Assemblymen here, since the legis
lature ha* adjourned, but such as are here say
they would gladly vote for an act arming New-
York with authority to accept Mr. Carnegie's
offer.
V. AY SHOULD BE FOUNI», SAYS WHALEN.
f^prporatlon Counsel Whalen said that he had not
learned the exact conditions of Mr. Carnegie's gift.
"A way should be found to accept such a generous
jrift." he added. He thought that the trustees of
The New-York Public Library could not legally
Wirect the management of the libraries. to be estab
lished under Mr. Carnegie's gift, as they were pri
vate and not public trustees. The legal procedure
regarding the acceptance of the gift would be
simpler if the gift was made direct to the -city, he
thought.
riTTSRTRG MAY GET $2n.000.000.
THIS SUM NAMED AS ENDOWMENT OF
... THE TECHNICAL SCHOOL.
PittFburgr. March Intimate friends of An
drew Carnegie say that it is the intention of the
*t«><-l maeter to pive at least £25,000.000 for the
erection of buildings and for the endowment of
th* proposed technical school of Pittsburg. It Is
also declared by those who have talked with Mr.
Carnegie That he intends to make his school the
finest of its kind in the world, and that it will
lend as much fame to Pittsburg on the theoreti-
Ical side of iron and ateel making as his famous
*orkp have done in actual practice.
BEFUSE TO SUPPORT CARNEGIE LIBRARY.
Eastcn. Perm.. March 15.— The Easton Board r.f
School Controllers last night refused to Increase

» CARNEGIE OFFER TO ST. LOUIS.
PROPOSES TO GIVE A MILLION DOLLARS
FOR A NEW PUBLIC LIBRARY.
St. Louis, March 1& — Andrew Carnegie has
offered to donate $1,000,000 for the building: of a
new public library In St. Louis. The offer is
similar to many others wJileh Mr. Carnegie has
made to cities throughout the country and
abroad. The conditions on which the gift Is to
be made can be easily complied with by the city
of St. Louis. Mr. Carnegie asks that the city
furnish an unencumbered site for the library
and that a maintenance fund of .«15<\000 a year
be assured.
(\ B. PAGB THE CHOICE.
REPUBLICAN LEADERS AND COUNTY
COMMITTEE DECIDE 4TO PRE
SENT HIM FOR ELECTIONS
COMMISSIONER.
> ' !
Senator Thomas C. Platt returned from Washing
ton yesterday. He had nothing to add to what ho
had said in Washington relative to the appointment
of Colonel Sangrer as Assistant Secretary of War.
Mr. Platt still insists that a State constabulary
bill will be passed at the present session of the
legislature. He will from now on give the greater
part of his time and attention to seeing that such
a bill Is drafted and presented to the legislature.
He commended Governor Odell's canal message.
Soon after the Senator arrived at the Fifth Ave
nue Hotel there was a conference as to who should
re selected for recommendation to the Mayor for
Elections Commissioner. The result of the con
ference was that Charles B. Page was decided
upon. There is little hope thai Page will be named.
The general impression is that the Mayor will dis
regard the supsestions and indorsements of the
Republican organisations In Manhattan and Brook
lyn and will name ex-Commission. Hess and
Abel!.
Mr. Page was formally and unanimously in
dorsed at a special meeting of the Republican
County Committee last nisht. Mr. Tape is a
lawyer and lives in the XVllth Assembly District,
at No. 334 West Flfty-slxth-st. He was formerly a
State Senator.
The nomination of Mr. Page did not seem to
strike some of the members of the committee as
good politics. It was pointed out that the Mayor
under the law was not obliged to appoint any man
certified by the Republican organisation. Some
were disappointed because Jacob Hess, former
Police Commissioner, was not chosen. Thomas L.
Hamilton, former Police Commissioner, who him
self had been mentioned as a possible candidate,
seconded the name of Mr. Page.
At the opening of the meeting last night Chair
man Morris said:
The bill that has passed makes It necessary to
certify to the Mayor the name of some man from
Manhattan and Brooklyn, within live days after
the passage of the bill, by the two parties securing
the highest vote for Governor at the last election.
The hill became a law on March 13, and the name
of the man selected I must certify to the Mayor
to-morrow. •
D. Frank Lloyd, of the xvnth Assembly Dis
trict, placed Mr. Page in nomination.
THE FOPCLATIOX OF GERMANY.
HOW ABOUT 56.000,000 AND SECOND ONLY TO
RUSSIA IN EUROPE— VIENNA'S
RANK AMONG CITIES.
Washington, March 15.— The Census Office has re
ceived through the State Department a consular
report on the population of the German Empire
and Its changes in the last century. That popula
tion is now about 56,000,000. being larger than that
of any other country In Europe except Russia,
which has In Europe alone over 106,00,<>X> subjects.
In 1789 the whole German Empire had a popula
tion of about 26.000,000, and at the close of the
Napoleonic wars in 1815 Germany, although some
what reduced in size, had a population of sonae
thing: more than 30.000,000. In 1845, since which da to
the area has remained almost constant, Germany
had 3J,OOO.t'JO; in 1665. 40,000,000; in ISRS. 47.p00,<wi. and
in 1900 about 55.500,000, an increase in the century
of about 30.000,000. Since IS7I, when the modern
German Empire was organized, the population has
Increased about 35 per cent, a growth extremely
rapid for an old country, and one pending out
large and steady streams of emigrants. The Ger
mans feel a natural pride in the, rapid growth of
their population, pays the report, compared with
that of their rival across the Rhine. In 1845 Franc*
had about MLMMSS Inhabitants and Germany 14.400,
<W. Now France has M,41*,W0, or only two-thirds
the number of Germany.
The provisional results of the census of Vienna,
taken on December 31, ISOO. have Just been an*
nounerd. find, according to a report from the Con
sul-General at Vienna, Fhow a population of 1/535,
647. or nearly 63,000 less than that of Chicago, when
the recent census of that city was taken. These
¦gores show Vienna to rank next after London,
Paris and Berlin among the European capitals.
whll<» In this country only New-York and Chicago
are larger. In the last ten years Vienna has In
creased 21.9 per cent, or slightly faster than the
average for the whole United States. Of the two
American cities larger than Vienna New-York in
creased in ten years 37. per cent and Chicago 64. 4
per cent. In common with most large cities, the
population of the central districts of Vienna is
slowly decreasing and the most rapid growth is In
the outskirts of the city.
A NAVAL PROBLEM SETTLED.
SECRETARY LONGS DECISION ON PROMO
TIONS FOR GALLANTRY.
"Washington. March 15.— Secretary Long to-day
rendered a decision on that feature of the recent
enactment of Congress promoting officers for gal
lant service and providing that the promotion of
these officers shall not interfere with the regular
flow of promotions. It was difficult to reconcile
these extra promotions and the regular promo
tions, and Congress provided that the promotions
for gallantry should be carried on the naval list as
"additional names." The effect of this promises
to be far reaching, for in effect these, additional
names make a large increase in the navy. For
instance, the rear-admirals are Increased from
eighteen to at least twenty-one, with prospects
of further Increase, while the captains, number-
Ing about fifty, may be increased to from sixty to
aeventy-flve. So it runs all through the naval list.
The decision to-day more particularly referred to
certain officers whose cases Berved as a sort of
test of the construction of the entire law. Secre
tary Long holds that the additional officials are
not to be so regartfed until they reach the higher
grade to which they are promoted. The effect of
this is to make Rear-Admiral Higglnson an addi
tional officer of that grade from the date of the
act. Captain Edwara M. Shenard. being then at
the head of the captains' list. Is promoted to t»he
grade of rear-admiral. The Bureau of Navigation
had urged that Captain Frank Wildes should be
promoted simultaneously with Captain Shepard,
but Secretary Long holds that Captain Wildes
must wait for a vacancy in the list of rear-ad
mirals. For similar reasons the Secretary holds
that Lieutenant-Commander W. B. Bailey cannot
he promoted under a clause nf the act. The Secre
tary lays down the general principle that the pur
pose of the law was not to hasten promotion among
officers advanced for war service, but to prevent
interference with promotions. It is held also that
< olonel R. W. Huntington, of the marine corps, is
not affected by the act.
PROMOTIONS RECOMMENDED.
Washington, March 15.-The Board of Awards of
the Navy Department to-day recommended to Sec
retary Long that Colonel Robert V. Meade. United
States Marine Corps, be brevetted brigadier-gen

ANOTHER RAID BY FIFTEEN'
MONROE. M'CULLAGH AND POLICE MAKE
SEVEN ARRESTS IN AN AL
LEGED POOLROOM. '
An alleged poolroom occupying the entire
sixth floor of Noa. 42 and 44 Bond-st. was en
teied last night by the police of the Mercer-st.
station, under the direction of representatives
of the Committee of Fifteen. Seven arrests v.-ere
mtde. six of them on a warrant issued by Jus
tice Jerome, of the Court of Special Sessions.
The building in which the raid was made was
formerly the Frank Leone Building. It now
bears a sign reading "Morris B. Baer, Owner
and Agent. No. IS Cortlandt-st."
It was just before 6 o'clock when Robert
Grier Monroe, one of the Committee of Fifteen,
walked into the Mercer-st. police station and
placed before Captain Thompson, who was sit
tins behind the desk, the warrant. It was the
captain's first day there, as he had been trans
ferred early yesterday morning. He read the
warrant and appeared to be surprised. He Im
mediately summoned a derail of patrolmen, and
placing Sergeant Thompson in charge, ordered
him to take the men and go with Mr. Monroe.
On the way to the Bond-st. building Superin
tendent MoCullagh joined the party.
The raiders reached the building in a few
minutes, and' Immediately went to the sixth
floor. The» entered easily. They found the
place occupied by about one hundred and fifty
me^i. It was well fitted up, and there were
numerous betting booths.
The police arrested the six men for whom the
v.arrant was intended, and then arrested Will
iam Hart, who said he was twenty-six years
old, and lived at No. 95 East Tenth-st. The
police say that Hart was giving orders for de
stroying some of the apparatus in the place.
The other men arrested, when arraigned in the
police station, described themselves as Thomas
Robertson, thirty years old. of No. 1,838 Lex
ington-aye.; Joseph Larkln?. thirty-two years
old. of No. 93 Macdougal-st.; William O'Brien,
thirty-two yean old. of No. 12 Second-st.:
Thomas Burns, twenty-six years old. of No. 372
Manhattan-aye.; William Wall, forty-six years
old, of No. 1,162 Sixth-aye., and Joseph Boyle,
thirty-two years old. of So. S2B Bowery.
When the police reached the station with the
prisoners they found that Justice Jerome had
preceded th^m. He Immediately arraigned the
men. Identifying them by number?. They were
represented by William Wills, a lawyer, of No.
2(\ Court-st., Brooklyn. Wills moved for the
dismissal of Hart, saying that Justice Gaynor.
of the Supremo Court, had recently decided that
any person arrested for violation of the gam
bling act must l>e arrested on a warrant. Jus
tice Jerome said that the evidence obtained in
the place could be made the basis for a warrant.
The prisoners were then held in $1,500 ball
each.
The evidence on which the raid was mad"
was obtained by Detectives W. C. Andrews and
J .C. OorMs, of Superintendent McCullagh's
staff. They went to the place last Wednesday
and entered the elevator. On the way up a man
said to Andrews:
"I think you an* a detective, and that you aro
going t^ the Flxth floor" Andrews replied, "I'm
K.'ini; to the sixth Boor." "Well, you're- not,"
th'- man said, and then ordered the elevator

Chance's store and were followed by the officers.
Seventeen men were in the store playing checkers
and whist.
Luke O'Reilly, Jr.. a lawyer, was one of the men.
He discoursed on th- rights of honest, men, and
said that he repented any Invasion on those right*.
To bear out his remarks he. smashed Detective
Ruddy's chin. Detective Keelan came up and
grappled with O'Reilly. The two rolled down a

Magistrate Finmmer. sitting in the Essex Market
police court, said yesterday:
Magistrate Pool- cannot be indicted for whit he
has done, and it is foolish to think so. He simply
as I understand it. performed a judicial act. and I
assume that he had authority to do what he did.
He thought the evidence before htm was insuf
ficient, and merely rendered his decision that there
was no case against the prisoner. If a judge is
incompetent he can be removed, but not for any
judicial act of his.
