HOT SHOT FOR WHITNEY
Chief E.recutivc's Reasons for Noi
Boston, X????. -TO.?Henry W. Whitney. Demo?
cratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor in the
last election, to-night mad? publio the letter
written to him by President Roosevelt. in which
he deciined t.. grant a request for an Interview
to dlscuss reciprocity. asked by Mr. Whitney. and
rffused to tusr Into any further communica?
tion with him regardlng th?'t subject The Pres?
ldent last wec-k tolu a Uassachosetta committee
that Mr. Whitney had deliberately misrepre?
sented words spoken by him last winter to a
Massachusetts committee cn reciproca] trade re?
The Plestdent's letter to Mr. Whitney fol?
I have your letter of the ]7th inst. ln view
th. ni.-. prevlous experienee with vou, i am
obllged to st.-ite, wilh icgret. that it is out of
lhe Question for me to grant you another inter?
view. ln this letter of November 17. in which
you make this request. you furnish additlonal
evidence of the wisdom of my refusing to eom
municate further with you: my refusal being
upon your evident inability to understand,
or determination to misrepresent, what 1 sav.
fn this letter you state that you "regret more
than anything else in connectlon wlth this mat
ter that the righteous cause of reclprocity wlth
neighboring < cuntiice of so much value to our
people, and to tho whole of the human race, is
nol to have the indorsement of your (my) great
;md the henefit of your fniy) potent aid."
Xothing that 1 have said at any tlme ha's
given you the slightest warrant for making this
assertion; and when in tbe very letter asklng
for an Interview and denying that you ever wll
fuliy misrepresented my prevlous remarks you
Incorporate another deliberate misstatement, you
can hardly wonder that I decline to see you:
nor would there in any event be the slightest
point In such an interview. Tn your speeches
you pretended to quote from memory certain
statements made in the course of gi long con?
versation occuring nearly a year previous.
You quoted portions of what I said?even as
to these portion* your language was inaccurate
and all the context was suppressed. As a re?
sult you its completely misrepresented me a-s
in thc sentence of your nreaent letter which I
quote above. It matters little whether this was
due to a deliberate purpose of deceptlon or to
a lack. in both your comrnnions and yourself. of
a nice sen.se of propriety and of the power of
exact thinking and of correct apprehension and
repetltion of what was said. In either event I
feel that it would serve no useful purpose again
to see you or further lo correspond with you.
You are al liberty to make this correspomlenee
public. if you ehoose.
The l?tter of Mr. Whitney which called forth
the foregoing reply was as follows:
Tou have done me a great injusilce in publicly
asserting that 1 h?ve wilfully misrepresented your
attitude on the question of reciprocity with Canada
and that thls was done in cowardly fashion by
saying- what J dld under conditions when the dig
nlty of your high office prevented you from deny?
ing. I think t am not open to "thls charge. " I
claim. in my humhle way. to be a fair fiphter. I
believe I have B well established and well deserved
reputation ln this community for fairness and Jus?
tice. I may have misundefstood you and hence
may have been led into error. You have charged
me wlth an offence of whlch I am not guilty;
you lia.ve'c,,],(!emned me unheard. I appeal to your
sense of fairness for a personal hearing. My pub?
lic utterances touching your attitude on thls
questlon aro very few and very brief. I will bring
them with me if you grant me this request. I
?nill have the passages marked and if will not take
you two minutes to read them. I trust. therefore,
that you wlll grant my request: but whether you
do or do not. I shall regret more than anvthlng
else in connectlon with this matter that the'right
eous cause of reciprocity wlth neighboring coiin
trie*. of so much value to our people and to the
whole of the human race. is not to have the In?
dorsement of vour great name and the benefit o*
your notent aid.
I take the liberty of inelislng herewlth a publlc
statement made by mvself and mv asslstant*
touching the matter of our interview with you last
winter, whlch perhaps you may not have seen.
The inclosures referred to by Mr. Whitney
were copies of letters from Andrew G. Websler,
of thls clty, and J. M. W. Hall. of Cambridge.
who went to Washington with Mr. Whitney as
members of the committee, in which Messrs.

Friday afternoon a large steamer struck Black
Ledge, off Cape Sable. The steamer struck at 5
o'ciock, and in ten mlnutes went to the bottom.
A heavy gale was then raging, and the crew
of the coaster say that all on the foundered
steamer undoubtedly perished. Nothlng further
as to the identity of the steamer can be ascer?
tained to-night, but she is believed to be the
Norweglan ___st.ean.er Turbine. vhich h / been
engaged in the coal carrying trade ft , t"< Do?

She left Sydney several days ago and has not

The Turbln was a single screw. steel steamer
o 749 tons gross, 190.5 feet long. 9&__ feet beam
and 12.6 feet deep. She was comparatlvely a

NEW M'ADOO STATION.
GRFJELEY SQ. TERMINAL.
Tunnel Company Begins Action to
Condemn Broadway Block Front.
The New-York and Jersey Railroad Company,
which has built two tunnel tubes under the North
River from Jersey City to Morton-st., is to have
a big terminal statlon opposite Greeley Square. at
33d-st. and Broadway. Its terminal site wlll com
prise the block front on the west slde of Broadway.
from 82d to 33d sts., with a frontage of 400 feet
ln both 32d and 33d sts.
Millions will be spent ln building the terminal.
The land to be used ls assessed at $1,880,500. but Its
market value ls considered to be about $3,500,000 The
parcels chosen for the terminal site are No. 1,275
to 1,291 Broadway, No. 106 to 135 West 32d-st. and
No. 102 to 126 West 33d-st., and include a number
of well known Broadway landmarks. Occupying
the Broadway frontnge of the proposed terminal
site are Trainor's Hotel and restaurant, the Man?
hattan Theatre and the Morrison, McDonald and
Jackson propertles south of the theatre. It ls
ssid that the theatre parcel has been for sale at
Stetaon, .Tennlngs . & Russell. counsel for the
tunnel company, began sult yesterday to acqulre
the parcels Selected as a terminal site through con
Ever since the New-York and Jersey Railroad
Company obtalned a franchlse to build two spurs
to its MorXon-st. tunnel route, one spur to connect
with the subway under 4th-ave. at Astor Place and
the other spur to extend through Christopher-st.
to 6th-ave. and up that avenue to 33d-st.. there have
been many reports that a big terminal for the 6th
ave. extenslon would be built on the Broadway part
of the site selected. .These reports, however. wero
emphatically denied. It was the ordglnal lntentlon
of the tunnel company to have only a small sta?
tion at 33d-st. and Broadway and to switch trains
at that polnt from one track to another. The com?
pany dld not seek in the beginning what are known
as long haul routes in the suburban districts of
New-Jersey. The route as flrst planned extended
from Greenwich and Christopher sts. to Jersey-st.
and the block bounded by 10th. Hudson, Greenwich
and Christopher sts. was bougiit several years ago
as a site for the Manhattan terminal. But the
route of the tunnel has been slowly enlarged untll
lt not only embraces an Astor Place and 6th-ave.
extension, but a trlangular annex on the New-Jer?
sey slde, coverlng Jersey City. Newark and Bay
onne. thus making a direct route from 33d-st. and
Broadway, Manhattan, to the centre of Newark.
MAY HAVE IXiXGER ROUTE.
It is not unlikely that the route of this tunnel
system connectlng Manhattan Island and New
Jersey will be consideralriy extended, so as ro
take ln' a larger New-Jersey area, and to bring
tho principal thsatre an?l shoppinj; centres of this
city within an easy ride of thousands of people
living in New-Jers-ey who never expected to be
wlthin the territory covered by the tunnel system.
The plans for a terminal at 33d-st. and Broad?
way wlll result In placing the ownership of the
block bounded by 32d and H3d sts.. Broadway and
7th-ave.. wlth the exception of the plot Nos 137.
139 and 141 West 3-d-st., owned by Thomas Dia?
mond. and sevetal other parcels. under the Penn?
sylvania Railroad Company ind the New-York
and Jersey Railroad Company. ln the new feature
the two companies wlll probably own thc* entire
block, and the Pennsylvania may then enlarge its
planB for Its tunnel terminal station at 33d-st. and
7th-ave. so as to cover the west end of the block
bounded by 32d and 33d sis.. Broadway and 7th
ave. Should such a change in the Pennsylvania's
tunnel station plans be made. :he change would
also result in the blocks between Broadway and
lOtli-ave.. Ui'd and 3M sts.. being wholly used for
tunnel terminal statlons, together with nbout tour
other blocks west of 7th-ave.
William G. McAdoo. president of the New-York
and Jersey Railroad Company. said last night
in replv to a question as to whether or not the
Pe'insylvania and his company would jointly 1m
prove the block on whlch the Manhattan Theatre
"The Pennsylvania is not connected ln any way
with the Morton-st. tunnel company's plans to
have a terminal at 33d-st. and Broadway."
AL ADAMS CROWDED OUT.
Among the owners of parcels forming the site
selected for the Morton-st. tunnel terminal sta?
tion ls Al. Adams, tbe former policy king. He
owus No. 117 West 32d-st. and Nos. 110, 113 and 114
West 33d-st. He recently sald he intended to erect
on his plot a hotel of forty-nine stories and to
have accomodatlons for 2.200 guests. Its room
capacity was to be one and one-half times greater
than the Ansonia. the largest apartment house ln
the world. Mortlmer C. Merritt waa commlssioned
to dr&w the plans. The site chosen for Adam's hotel
wa.s formerly partly occupied by the notorlous
"House of all Nations." When Adams bought the
property he said his sole reason for buying lt was
to put an end to Its immoral charaeter. He leased
the property to Sister Francis. who titted it up as
a resc-Ue home for homeless women, and called it
the **House of the Transfiguratlon." The house
wa.s abandoned last year.
The Manhattan Theatre was built about tweiyfy
seven years ago. "Pinafore" waa one of the early
productlons on its stage. For many vears the
name of the theatre was the Standard, It was de

Philadelphla. Nov. 20.? That football should be
retained instead of abolished is the latest dec?
laration of President Roosevelt. Dr. J. William
White, of the Unlversity of Pennsylvania, was
to-day invited to take luncheon with the Presl?
dent for the purpose pf discussing the football
situation as an outcome of Dr. White's recerat
defence of football in "The Outlook." At the
concluslon of the luncheon the Presldent author
lzed Dr. "White to make public certain conclu
Blons whlch had been reached. In addi
tion to his belief ln the permanent value of the
game, the Presldent camo out emphatically in
favor of the abolltlon of brutality and unfalr
play. To eradicate these he declared that the
umpires should be given greater power to deal
with the offenders.
The Presldent also came out flrmly in favor
of a uniform ellgibllity code among the leading
unlversltles of the East. and expressed the hope
that there would be a meeting of the flve or slx
leading institutions for this purpose. He also
made use of this opportunlty to explain why
Pennsylvania, Cornell and Columbia had not

been discussed. President Roosevelt paid that
the suggestion for this meeting had come from
the three colleges named and not from him, acd
that if Pennsylvania, Cornell and Columbia had
made the suggestion they alone would have
been invited. The Presldent made it understood
that there was no purpose to ignore Pennsyl?
vania, Cornell and Columbia.
When Dr. White returned from Washington
The President did me the honor of asking me
to lunch with him at the White House for the
purpose of discusslng with him the situation as
to American football. -An article of mine. pub?
llshed in last week's *'Outlook," was the occa
sion of the invitatlon. As to what took Dlace
during my visit, the President has permitted me
to say that we are in compiete accord as to the
need of permanent abolition of brutality and
foul olay. and of the Increase of t|he powers of
the offleials and of the severity of the penalties
necessary to bring about such abolltlon; as to
the desirabilltv* of careful consideration of any
change in the rules that may be required to
minimize danger while preserving the essential,
manly and vigorous characteristlcs of the game,
and as to the need of earnest effort to secure
a simple and uniform ellgibility code for all
American c-olleges and universitie*.
The President emphatically believes in con
tinuiag the game.
Dr. White then quotes the President literally
Brutality and foul play should recelve the
same summary punishment given to a man who
t-heats at cards or who strikes a foul blow in
boxing The umpire must have the wldest
latltude in enforoing thls principle, even to
the extent of ordering not only individual play?
ers but whole teams off the fleld. and college
presidefits should hold to the sharpest accounta
bilitv the umolre who permits foul or brutal
football in any game. We want simple rules,
not compllcated rules. because complicated rules
offer too many loopholes.
The responsiblo authorities of the several col?
leges whose teams play together should have
what may be called a gentleman's agreement
among themselves. The rules should be en
forccd in spirit as well as ln letter, each being
held responslble for what goes on in his own
college and each seeing to the permanent re
moval'from the game not only of the foul or
brutaf player. but of the man who Is not a
bona flde student and amateur. It would be a
real misfortune to lose so manly and vigorous
a game as football. and to avert such a possl
bility the authorities in each college should see
to it thA the game at that college is clean.

Will Bc Modern Hostlery with lJiOO
Rooms- Fifteen Stories.
D. O. Mills filed plans yesterday for a flfteen.
atory hotel to be built at the northeast corner j
of S5th-st. and "th-ave. and to be known __.
Mills Hotei No. 3. The new hotel. which willi
be for men only, of course, will have a stone j
and terra cotta brick front and wlll be construet
ed ot iron ?nd steel throughout. The cost ofi
the ground was $500,00i> and the structure wlllf
cost $1,000,000. making a total cost of $1,500.
000 for the enterorise.
Work will be started at once. and it ls the in?
tention of Mr. Mills to have the new hotel in
operation by January 1_ M*. tt not before.
The same scale of prices whlch at present pre
vails at Mills Hotel No. 1, located on Bleeck er -'
st. and at Mills Hotel No. 2. at Chrystie and
Rlvlngton sts.. wlll rule at the new hoteL
Mr. Mills, who has now had eight years of
experience in operating the low priced hotel*
whlch have been such a boon to this city, is
giving Mills Hotel No. 3 his personal attention,
and In construetlon and equipment there will
be no hotel ln the city more modern or scien?
tiflc. In fact, some of the innovations whlch will
be introduced. accordlng to those ln charge..
will open the eyes of hotel managers all over
The location of the new hotel is near the heart
of the theatre district. and it wlll he surrounded
by some of Xew-York's best hostleries. Right
across 7th-ave.. at the northwest corner of 36th
st., is the comparatively new Hotel York. while
at 33th-st., on the west slde of Tth-ave.. ls the
Hotel Navarre. There are now standing on the
plot where the new hotel will be built a seven
story apartment house. only two years old. and
some old wooden houses. These, of course, will
be razed at once.
The flfteen stories of the new hotel will pro
vide nearly nineteen hundred rooms, all of whlch
wlll be larger and lighter than tho rooms ln
Mills hotels Nos. 1 and 2. The flrst or main
floor plan provldes for a spacious vestlbule with
offices on both sides. Straight ahead through
this vestibule leads the guest Into the main halL
while on each side of the vestibule doors open
into large libraries, -which wlll be llberally
fllled with books. On both sides of the main
hall are smoking rooms, while to the rear ot
these is a separate readlng and writing room.
Between these are the hotel offlces, key room.
etc, and here the four elevators and the stair
ways are placed.
lt is to the basement and its flttlngs, however,
that Mr. Mills has devoted especlal attention.
and here many of the latest devices of modern
hotel science will be found installed. The base?
ment ls a high one. Its floor ls only flvo
feet below the street level, thus Insuring plentjr
of light and air. Here are situated the res
taurant and kitchens. the bakeshop, the refrlg
erating plant, the baggage room, the servants'
dining room, barber shop, washroom. toilets,
etc. In addition. there are tWrty shower baths
and thlrty-flve water closets.
The restaurant extends the whole depth of
the hotel, 100 by 175 feet, and wlU seat
over four hundred people at a tlme. Here a,
regular dinner will be .erved __?*___ . whHa
meals a la carte can be obtalned at cost price,
Two rolls and a cup of coffee, for sxample.
will cost the guest 5 cents, with other dlshes in
proportion. The restaurants in tbe various Mills
hotels are always run with the Idea ot giving
the guests food which ls wholesome and pal
atable at cost and making no proflt. The samo
plan will be in vogue here.
One feature of the refrlgeration plant will be
that lt will not only provide lee boxes and cold
storage. but wlll furnish lee water thronghouc
the hotel. The private laundry, where the guest
can strlp and wash his own clothes and dry and'
don them, wrtll also be in the basement Tt ls
the desire of Mr. Mills, in fact, that Mills Hotel
No. 8 will have everything that has been found
lacking in the two former enterprises.
Below tbe basement will be the cellar whicl*.
will contain the electric lighting nlant, cold
storage room, large enough to hold twenty car
ioads of vegetables. engine room, additionai bag?
gage rooms, etc.
The arrangement of the foairteen upper floores
will be identical. There will be two large out?
side and two large Inside courts, which will give.
light and air to every room. There tflll not
be a dark room in the hoteL On each floor
there will be 156 rooms. Each wlU be ? feet
by 8 feet 6 Inches with the corner rooms __ tzifle
larger. Each room wiil be lighted by eJeetUo
light and furnished with iron bedstead, chair
and chiffonier. The beds wlll be prorided with
a sprlng and a hair mattres3 'and tbe hoMftig
wlll be of the best.

which are thus shut ofT from the hotel proper,
The plumbing will be modern and ___n_t__ry ln
every respect. Tbe floors wlll all be ot eement.
Thus there can be no leakage or chance to flood
the hotel proper. The prlces for the rooms have
not been exactly sett'-sd upon as yet but -wlll
be elther 25 or 30 cents a night, with the corner
rooms a trifle higher. The roof will be flnlshed
flat with a penthouse for disln feet Ing and ster
The new hotel will requlre upward of one
