letters protesting against his playing golf, on the
ground that it is "a rich man's game," a "waste

"You remember." said Mr Taft. "the fable of
the old man. the boy and the ass. The old man
rode the ass and the boy walked behind, but
people said. 'See that cruel old man making

"Then the old man got off and put the boy
on the ass. And the- people said. 'See that
heartless boy making that poor old man walk!'
"So then they both got on the ass. and even'

Transfer Conference To Be Held
Within Time Limit.
The receivers of the Metropolitan Street Rail
way Company and the officials of the Central
Park. North & East River Railroad Company did
not get together yesterday to make a joint fare, but
they will before August 24, the limit given them
by the Public Service Commission last Tuesday.
This was announced by Arthur H. Masten after a
conference with Douglas Robinson, one of. the re
ceiver?, yesterday morning.
The changed attitude of the receivers. It would
appear, is due to a more careful reading of the
order of the commission, from which they dis
covered that that body does not wish to force
wholesale transferring: upon the Metropolitan,
but wants to see transfers restored in 59th street.
po that persons living between 34th street and
116 th street won't have to pay 15 cents for a ride
much shorter than that had for only five cents
by a person boarding a Metropolitan car below
34th street or above 116 th street.
Mr Masten, who Is counsel for the receivers,
declared that they had no Intention of flouting
the commission's order by applying to Judge
Lnoombe for instruction? as to what course they
should pursue He said the receivers had oheyed
every order issued by the commission and would
do so j n this case It was their intention to do
what they could with the Central Park road's
officials in coming to ar> arrangement such as
outlined in the commission's order He thought,
however, th.nt r,n agreement could be arrived at
'f the officials of the Centra! Park. North & East
River Railroad Company should insist on getting
half of every fare collected from users of the
two systems The records of pass*"nge r s carried
showed, he paid, that out of twenty million pas
sengers transferring from one system to another,
the fare? of only seven million came from pas
sengers boarding the Central Park Company s
.If the companies do not do so by August 24 the
'■■ommission will make its debut at ratemaking
between two distinct common carriers The rate
will depend on what the commission thinks the
companies can handle the traffic for with reason
In connection witn Judge Ijacombe's doubts as to
the constitutionality of the law giving the commis
sion this power. Secretary Travis H Whitney.
speaking for the commission, said yesterday: "The
power of the commission to fix such routes and
rates is not untried. This same power has b^pp
held by the Intt-rstite Commerce Commission for
two or three years now, and that commission has
already in dozens of cases required companies to
establish through routes and .loint rates, and- 1n
quite a number of o«ef; has reduced through rates
on the ground that they were not .lust and reason
able Had there b*en any doubt as to the con
stitutionality of such a grant of power to a com
mission. som» of these cases would have been
taken into the courts, but it Is significant that such
decisions by the Interstate Commerce Commission
have not been questioned
"The doctrine seems to be held, howevr. by
those high in authority In the control of the Metro
politan Street Railway that the provisions of the
statute, however clear the language may be. are
without meaning or effect until a court has inter

MR. MELLEX'S OBJECT.
Interborough Officials Think He's
Trying to Frighten Them, 'Tis Said.
Though- it has long been a matter of common
knowledge that the New York. New Haven &
Hartford Railroad Company would be only too
willing to make some arrangement for bringing its
commuter traffic Into New York so that it might
establish a terminal of Its own and give up the
tenancy of the Grand Central Station, Skepticism
was expressed yesterday as to its real object in
offering to build a subway of its own from The.
Bronx to the Battery. Charles S. Mellen, president
of the road, intimated to Commissioner Eustis, of
the Public Service Commission, on Wednesday
that if it could not make an arrangement with the
Interborough or other rapid transit route In Man
hattan to handle the commuter traffic )t might
build a subway of its own. That assertion was the
first the Public Service Commission had heard offi
cially of the New Haven's willingness to build a
subway, if necessary- Unofficially, however, mem
bers of the commission had hoped that the railroad
would help solve the local traction problem If no
bidders appeared on routes for purely local traffic.
Several informal conferences of Interborough offi
cials, It Is understood, were held yesterday, at
which this question was put: "Is Mr. Mellen trying
to scare us or is he really in earnest, or does he
want to conciliate the Public Service Commission
for failure to fulfil th« terms of the franchise
and go ahead with the construction of the New
York & Port Chester Railroad?" Those to whom
the question was addressed wer* not, it ip said, in
entire agreement In their answers, but Mr. Mel
len's hint that the New Haven would build a sub
way was not taken too seriously.
It would cause no surprise, however, if the Pub
lic Service Commission should take Mr. Mellen at
his word and set its engineering: corps at work
en plans for a routs which would meet the require
ments of the New Haven and enable It to bring
its traffic right down to the Battery. Such a sub
way route would relieve, the congestion in the ex
isting subway and solve the problem of building
the Broadway-Lexington avenue line
No amendment to the Blsberg Jaw or other exist
ing legislation would be necessary to enable the
New Haven to build a subway. If that road was
sincere in its wish to do so. As it Is a trunk line,
the Public Service Commission could, with the con
pent of the Board of Estimate and Apportionment,
grant tho New Haven the necessary permission. In
the same way the Pennsylvania la now building a
tunnel under the North and East rivers end Man
hattan Island. Under the terms of section 83 of
the existing Rapid Transit act, the New Haven
could make formal application for a. route to carry
its passengers to and from it* terminal In this
city and so establish a through route over its lines.

\\FOR SALFBVJYOUR GROCER
SEWEK FOR KATONAH
Dr. Darlington Finds Conditions
Much Better than Last Year.
Katonah. near the Cross River dam of the Cro
ton water supply system, is planning to build a
sewer. Dr. Thomas Darlington, the Commissioner
of Health, made an inspection of the watershed
yesterday and when he reached the village H. R.
Barrett and E. P. Barrett showed him plans and
discussed the sewer scheme In all its health bear
Ever since the typhoid outbreak In the village
about eighteen months ago the leading men of
Katonah have been considering sewage methods.
An enactment by the Legislature at its last session
gave it the power to build a sewer system, and
the understanding in the village is that the city
wlll build a disposal plant. The city Is doing It
for Mount Kisco, and will do it for Katonah.
It was shown by the Barretts that there was
practically no place in the limits of the village
where a disposal plant could be built to take In
the sewage by gravity There was one section that
might be available, but it was too near the upper
reaches of the Musooot reservoir, and also too near
the dwellings. There would be objection from the
persons living near the level reaches, and Dr. Dar
lington was sure that the water supply would be
threatened with contamination.
To connect with the sewer in Mount Kisco would
be too expensive, and the next method, pumping
to higher ground, was the only feasible one Plans
embodying the latter scheme will be prepared If
the Department of Water Supply. Gas and Elec
tricity engineers approve. A conference with one
of the engineers will be held in a short time, and
a topographical survey of the village may be made.
It was said by the Barretts that it would be nec
essary to incorporate Katonah before the neces
sary funds for the sewer could be raised. The
village is now a part of Bedford. Steps to Incor
porate will be taken as soon as an agreement has
been made with the two city departments regard-
Ing the disposal plant.
A reporter for The Tribune learned from Dr. Dar
lington last evening that the conditions in the Cro
ton watershed were better by far than last year.
Kensico reservoir is clear and fresh, and only
about three feet below the spillway. The grass has
been cut about twelve feet from the water's edge
and six feet from the banks of the brook which is
the feeder. Discoloration from dead grass and pos
sible contamination are thus avoided.
An investigation by a Tribune reporter disclosed
the fact that Lake Wampus, one of the feeders,
was free from scum and was full. Muscoot was
also full, and so was Byram. At each the grass
cutting precaution had been taken. The Cross
River reservoir was within a few inches of being
full, and conditions there were good.
The big Croton alone showed the effects of a
drouth and much use of water. It was about eight
feet below the spillway, and the shores were bare
far up among the reaches of the reservoir. There
was no evidence of any Impurities. The exposed
bed of the big water .container was getting green
with grass in places, and there were no stagnant
It was ip Mount Kisco only that any deleterious
condition* were' found, and it was said that these
were not a menace because of the filtration of the
water through the adjoining soil. The brook, one
of the Croton feeders, crept sluggishly along, tur
bid as it was last year when The Tribune exposures
of threatening watershed conditions compelled rigid
inspection and the cleaning of cesspools that emp
tied Into the stream. The cesspools have not been
used Bince, and drainage from stables has been
ptoppefl. The work on the sewer system is being
pushed, so that soon every possible danger to the
city's water will be removed.
GENESEE'S ACCOUNTS CALLED LAX.
Albany. Aug. 13.— Criticism of the conduct of the
financial affairs of Genesee County is made in a
statement, given out to-day by the State Con
troller, which summarizes the report of an in
vestigation of the departments of that county con
ducted under the direction of Controller Martin H.
The statement alleges "that the examiners found
that illegal and unauthorized payments have been
made from the county treasury aggregating mo^e
than S1S.000: that the County Clerk. Sheriff and
surrogate's clerk have retained fees to which thpy
were not lawfully entitled; that extreme looseness
has prevailed In the administration of the county
poor funds; that the system of accounting In the
office of the County Treasurer is inadequate and
defective, and that the Board of Supervisors has
been careless and indifferent in the auditing of
hills and the discharge of other duties."
