Senate Refuses to Pass Bill Per

Albany. May 24— The McGrath bill, per
mitting the playing of baseball on Sunday
afternoon by amateurs, was defeated in
the Senate to-day by a vote of 1" to 28.
The 11l had passed the Assembly.
Senator Caffrey made a plea for justice
to the boys of the congested districts of
New York. Senators MeManus. Brouch.
Wagner and Newoomb followed on the

was infinitely better to provide innocent
Sunday amusements than to have the
young loitering on street corners or drink-
Ing itl saloons.
The opposition was led by Senator 3rack
«•«. who declared that while he counted
himself a liberal in all things the passage
of such a measure would be a step toward ;
breaking down barriers that have pre- '

Agree to Assembly Resolution
for Genera! Graft Inquiry.
-HAS GAG IN EVERY LINE"
So One Senator Declares, and
Another Says It Is an At
tempted Fraud on People.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune. 1
Albany, May 24.— Though every man
who spoke for it admitted that the As
sembly resolution for a general graft
investigation was weaker than the Senate's
and likely to be less effective, the Senate
to-day under the leadership of Senators
Cobb and Grady made a complete sur
render to the lower house on that issue.
By a vote of 29 to IS the Senate refused
to reconsider the vote by which last week
the Assembly document was adopted. The
Assembly later concurred in the slight
change made by the Senate. Thus what
ever graft hunt is conducted now will
be made under a resolution denounced by
some of the best lawyers in the Legislature
as weak, unsatisfactory and "an at
tempted fraud on the people of the state."
This attitude of surrender to the As
sembly leaders on this matter was em
phasized by the position taken by Senator
Cobb, the Senate leader, and Senator Hill,
of Buffalo, chairman of the Finance Com
mittee, which considered the resolution.
Hoth admitted specifically that the As
sembly document was not as satisfactory
as th*» original resolution drafted by Sen
ator Cobb. Yet bath opposed, in commit
tee and on the floor to-day. Senator Hin
man's suggestion that the Senate refuse to
accept the emasculated resolution and
have a conference committee, to thresh out
the question with a delegation of Assem
blymen. They declared that course would
lead to a deadlock.
Feared a Conference.
Senator Oobb. who defended legislators
In both houses from what he chose to re
gard as attacks on their pood faith, him
self delivered the most ambiguous compli
ment to the Assembly which has been en
tered on the records this season.
"If we begin fooling around with any
conference committee." said he. "we'll give
die Assembly a chance to defeat this reso
lution, and' prevent an investigation."
There was no lack, though, of criticism
of the Assembly's emasculated resolution.
Senators Hinman, Xewcomb, Davenport,
Wainwright and Brackett denounced it.
Senator Xewcomb went Senator ' Hinman
one better on the "weaklings and crooks"
remark of last week, which create*! such a
•If we were crooks, we couldn't act any
differently regarding this resolution than
we have." said he. The man who didn't
know us personally would have a hard job
to beiieve anything except that we were
afraid of a real investigation."'
S< niitor Hinman began the fight by mov
ing to take from the table his motion to
lIUHHIMrr tho vote by which the Assem-
Mv « resolution was adopted last week.
Tho motion was taken from the table
unanimously. Then the fun began. Sena
tor Hinman prefaced his remark? by de
claring that he spoke with the utmost re
spect (or his colleagues, regardless of party.
He *aid that the Senators owed it to them
selves to have a r-al investigation, which
should show the world just those men
who were honest and those who. perchance,
had at some time disgraced the legislative
Objects to Assembly Lobby.
Then he took up a detailed comparison
of* the Senate * original resolution and the
document which the Assembly substituted
for it. Incidentally, he «riticis^d the Rules
Committee system pretty harshly, and said
a few sharp words about Assemblymen who
have been lobbying in the Senate recently.
He did not mention names, but his descrip
tion fitted Speaker Wadsworth.
The Rules Committee is appointed by
one man. and is under his Influence. ' said
he. -I don't want to criticise the present
Speaker, but ihe system vests in the hands
of one man the legislative policy of both
Senate and House for days and weeks.
This is an arbitrary power, which should
not ba exercised by one individual. And
right now T want to say that we have seen
recently members of the other branch of
the Legislature lobbying on the floor here.
That ought not to be."
Senator 'JCewoomb declared that the Sen
ate didn't show a very highly developed
sensitiveness to criticism. "It would seem,"
he paid, '"that we were so used to the con
tempt of the other branch of the Legislat
ure that we don't act like sensitive men.
with a due realization of the trust confided
to us.** said he. "Instances like this where
we fall to appreciate the dignity of our
own body have led to this seemingly in
discriminate expression of contempt for
us. There is a gag in almost- every line
of this resolution— an intentional gag. It
should be a very simple matter to satisfy
those who want to know how. we've admin
is! red our trust— open the books and con
duct ourselves as men on whom lies no
shadow of disgrace— as men not skulking
and seeking protection."
Senator Cobb Content.
Senator Cobb said he had no doubt about
the possibility of conducting a thorough
investigation un«ier this form of resolu
tion, although he didn't think it was quite
as good as the Senate's resolution.
"We've got to leave a little something
to the Intelligence of the committee," said
he. "If 1 have anything to do with it. no
body will so on that committee about whom
there could be the least question."
Senator Davenport maintained that even
a deadlock on this matter would be better
than for the Senate to pass a resolution
not acceptable to the public.
'This resolution provides for a committee
on which no self-respecting man could sit,"
he went on. "In view of th*» doubt sur
rounding these provision!*, .while no doubt
existed about Senator Cobb's original res
olution, why should we accept this As
sembly draft? Who slipped this resolution
to us? Is not a little group of Aseembly
men exercising too great; power In the
Senate? Why do a few Assemblymen find
it necessary to whisper behind the seats of
certain Senators whenever important legis
lation is up? We are very sensitive about
the words "crooks and weaklings.' We

and party honor."

Speaker Wadsworth denied these
charges with some heat. When asked
why the directors' liability bill was not
reported by the Rules Committee he
"Let the Senate do its duty. We've

CHARTER TIME EXTENDED
Assembly Gives Committee An
other Year to Make a Report.
[By Telp^raph to Th<» Tribune!
Albany. May 34.— Charter legislation for
New York City was disposed of for this
year when the Assembly adrpied a resolu
tion to-day continuing in existence the
sptcial legislative committee which drafted
the New York charter bill. It appropriates
$25,000 for expenses, and provides that the
committee shall make its report on January
There has been much criticism among
legislators here of the procrastinating
methods of the committee during the whole
year it has been working over this one
piece of legislation. The only result of its
labor Is a charter largely based on that
drawn up by the Ivins commission, ap
pointed by the Governor two years ago.
The present appropriation of $25,000 asked
for will bring the requirements of the com
mittee so far up to 570.000.
There is much talk of political influence
being used to keep the committee in ex
istence. Its chairman is Fred Hammond,
an ex-Assemblyman and one of the chief
lieutenants of Francis Hendricks, of Syra
cuse. Julius M. Mayer, former Attorney Gen
eral, is the counsel of the committee, and
the assistant counsel is Ray B. Smith, clerk
of the Assembly, whose political power of
late has led many to pick him for Hen
dricks's successor in the Onond3ga County
Republican organization. The original com
mittee was made up of Senators Grady,
Brough and Gledhill. and Assemblymen
Hammond. Murphy, Robinson. Smith and
Geoghan. This year Senators Cobb and
Cullen and Assemblymen Conklin. Lee and
Shortt were added.
The resolution continuing the committee
was reported by the Rules Committee after
tht charter bill, which was on to-day's
calendar, had been recommitted for amend
ment During the argument on the bill
Assemblyman Conklin. of New York, read
a letter from Mayor Gaynnr to former At
torney General Mayor. In it the Mayor
said he felt it would be better to postpone
the passing of the charter until the begin
ning of the next legislature, "so that the
city official?, the civic bodies and all of us
may consider it carefully during the next
summer and fall, and propose amendments.
In that way we shall get the new charter
in a stato approaching perfection."
"Can you not redraw the entire charter
and still" reduce it by one-half of the bulb
of its present proposed form?" asked
Mayor Gaynor. "That work can never be
properly done, in my judgment, except by
on< band. I have long wished to do it. but.
alas! so many things press upon me that 1
can help only a little."
The resolution continuing the committee
was sent over to the Senate, where it was
referred to the Finance Committee.

The Assembly after a lively fight, little
of \ which appeared on the surface, con
curred in the Senate's amendments to the
general changes in the Public Service com
missions law. The vote sa this was 100 to 8.
There was very sharp manoeuvring on
this bill, which It of great importance to
Now York City, owing to the fact that it
defines and broadens the powers of the
Ist restrict Commission relating to trans
fers, and als»o its powers over gas" and
electric lighting companies. A powerful
lobby had been at work here against it for
several days, and there was danger of Its
being talked to death by certain Demo
cratic Assemblymen and their Republican
There was an indication of this when
before the bill had been reached on the
calendar a motion was made . by "Jack"
Tale for adjournment. This was inter
preted by Assemblyman Parker and other
supporters of the bill as an effort to have
it go over for a day. They rallied and
beat that motion, 52 to 48. Later, when the
bill was reached and being discussed. As
semblyman Oliver tried to make 'a motion
to adjourn, but his motion did not seem
to attract the attention of the chair.
Most of the work against the bill came
from representatives of the Long Acre
Electric Light and Power Company. One
clause in the bill virtually would wipe <vt
that concern. That clause provides that
any concern having a franchise not exer
cised or the use of which had lapsed for
a year must go to the commission for per
mission to resume operations. The I^ongr

than a year. Various attorneys have been

The telephone and telegraph bill passed
with little trouble, although Senator Grady
talked bitterly against it. He made the
only speech In opposition to it. Senator
Davis defended the bill, declaring that it
must be pretty good when Senator Grady
could find so little in it to criticise.
Others than Senator Grady. however,
criticised two or three features of the. bill,
which they are inclined to consider "jokers."
One of these is a provision compelling tele
graph companies on order to transfer mes
sages and give continuous service over con
necting lines. Telephone companies are not
specified, so that the commission will not
have power to order the Telephone Trust to
exchange service with independent com
panies. Another feature criticised is the
language of the section prohibiting the
issue of bonds save for certain specified
purposes. This leaves a very large loop
hole, its critics say. for bond issues for
questionable purposes. Still another feat

TAMMANY MEN WIN
Kill Assemblyman Ward's Bill
Amending the Election Law.
Albany, May 24.— The defeat to-day of a
bill of Assemblyman" Ward, of New York,
amending th«» election law in reference to
watchers . and the identification of voters,
has given rise to. talk that the agreement
between the Republican and Democratic
machines in the Legislature ha. been re
sumed. It is said that, the Wadsworth
machine has promised to kill the New
York County Republican organization elec
tion bills if the Democrats will vote against
any direct primary legislation.
The bill beaten this afternoon was fought
tooth and nail by the Tammany members.
It, is similar to the legislation, proposed
last year by the New York County Repub
lican Committee, and, according to Herbert
Parsons, then chairman of the committee,
it was defeated by a deal involving Speaker
Cannon and Washington legislation and
Tammany and Republican organization
During the debate this afternoon the
most .bitter invectives were hurled against
the bill by "Al" Smith, the Tammany rep
resentative in the Assembly, who spoke for
an hour. He declared that the bill was
preposterous and scandalously unjust.
Amendments which h« offered were de
feated by a vote of 64 to 56, but on the
final' passage of the hill it was only able to
get 73 votes, three less than the number
The Lansing bill, to prevent members of
the Legislature from acting as legislative

The question of the high cost of living
again arose in the Assembly to-day, when,
by a vote Of 90 to IT, it passed the Garfein
bill, creating a commission to investigate
It. The bill appropriates $15,000 and calls
for a commission* of five Assemblymen,
three Senators and two appointees by the
Governor. In the debate on the measure
Assemblyman Murray attributed the high
cost of living to the combinations, while
Assemblyman Lansing said that it was due
to the premature killing of hogs, cattle and
chickens, which if allowed to grow would
reproduce and make such, meat cheaper.
One of the series of Excise Department
bills, introduced by Assemblyman Conk
lin. was defeated in the Assembly, receiv
ing only 71 votes. It provides for a limita
tion of the number of liquor licenses to
one for every 750 of population and
changes the opening hour of saloons from
5 to 6 a. m. Mr. • Conklin said that the
bill was approved by the Anti-saloon
League as well as the hotel owners, and
he warned the Assembly that 'it would be
better to pass a moderate law like this
now than to face a more drastic one later.
The measure was violently opposed by
Assemblymen "AT Smith and McCue. Mr.
Conklin moved to reconsider the vote by
which the bill was lost, and it is expected
that he will call it up to-morrow. The in

RESENTS HUGHES'S WORDS
Young Denies Railroad Would
Benefit by His Bill.
[By Telegraph to Th* Tribunal I
Albany, May 21.— Assemblyman F. L.
Younsr, of Westchester County, on th* floor
of the House to-day a-,- : - denied the
suggestion Of Governor Hughes that' th»
New York Central would benefit by his
bill relative to grants of land tfnder water
for commercial purposes. The Governor
vetoed the bill, and In his veto mcs?as<» I
to the Assembly he said:
"It i 3 suggested that the purpose -i
tended to be accomplished is to ■*:■ a
basis for persuading the Land Board ■ ■•>
make grants for beneficial enjoyment os
tensibly in the Interests of" th" proprietors
of certain lands along the Hadson, and on
terms suitable from that point of view, I
while in fact the grants -would inure to th*
benefit of the New York Central & Hudson
River Railroad Company tinder tran3f?r3
from the grantees pursuant to arrange
ments to be made or already made."
It was after hearing this message read
that Mr. Young made his speech. "Mr..
Speaker." lie said, "no such arrangement
has been made to my knowledge. After a
hearing on this bill yesterday the cuestion j
was asked of m<* whether or not there ,
was any intention of the riparian owners
to convey their rights to the New York
Central Railroad Company. I answered
truthfully that I knew of no such arrange
ment. And then I added, as was perfectly
proper, that I did not commit an offence '.
against the law if such arrangements were i
Mr. Young also made objections to •.
newspaper suggestion that the bill had been
sneaked through the Legislature. He ex
plained that it had been handed to him after
a conference by a well known and reputa
ble lawyer of Westchester County, and
that it had been sanctioned by the Attor
ney General's office. *
"The suggestion was made to me," h^
said, "that something of this- kind would
happen to my legislation, by virtue of the
speech which I made on direct nomina
tions the other day. I do not believe th»
executive of this state would take a position
against a modest member of the Assem
bly and put him in that position simply
because he makes a speech on the floor
of this house honestly criticising some of
the acts of the executive."
