conducted under the reduced llcenso evidence
of Intent to violate the law and provide that a
revocation of the license and all the other pains
an1 penalties named In the Halnes bill shall

The passage or failure of the bill will depend
almost entirely upon the attitude of the Kuptib
llcan State machine which Is as et undeter
mined Senator Raines lion declared that he
M 111 oppose any attempt t modify his master
piece In any respect Many of tho other leader
In tho Legislature however are disposed to
favor tho concession to tho Germans and tho
C ant

political move for the party tn make
As ha been pointed out In these despatched

June Iteekrnnn ICeTpvp to Mnndaa the
Comptroller Tho 10 Per Cent llld Good
With Inferences which tho Court drew from
tho fabulous bidding last October for the railroad
road franchises above tho Harlem Justice
Beok mal ot the Supreme Court yesterday dis
missed the action of the Southern Boulevard
Railroad Company for an Injunction to restrain
the Comptroller from proceeding with the bid
ling and to compel the Comptroller to award
tho franchises to the plaintiff company on Its
bid ot 3W per cent of tho gross receipts Tho
Peoples Traction Companys motion to compel l
the Comptroller t award It tie franchises on
Its bid of 100 per cent of the cross receipts
came nearer success but went by the board be
cause the city was not made 0 party to the
action
ton
These franchises were for the operation of
railroads nn twenty and a half miles of streets
in the Twentythird and entyfourth wards
The Peoples Traction Company bad obtained
tho content of the Common Council tn Its use of
these streets but time franchises had to be sold I
at auction to tho bidder who will agree to give
to the city the largest percentage of tbo gross
receipts per annnm The sale came off on Oct
0 IHIin Tho Southern Boulevard Railroad
Company which with the North New York
City Traction Company is I said to be a creature
of tho old huckleberry railroad stopped
when It had bid l6 per cent Time
Peoples Traction Company aid time North
Now York City Traction Company ran against
each other up to 1 I per cent and a trac
tion which was bid by tho latter com
pany and then limo Peoples Traction Company
Jumped to 17 per cent for the first five years
and US per tent thereafter which with the
statutory tax of M per cent for the first five
years lull per cent thereafter made the bid
exactly Ihe whde of the uross receipts The
Peoples Traction Company contended that this
was tho hlghimt bid that thn law allowed The
bidding between these two companies however
went murrlly forward until 0176 nnd 11 tub
per cent was hid Further proceedings were
atopped by I temporary Injunction Thin Judge
sayx the plalntltls ias falls because It did not
make the highest legitimate bid
Within the limits of tho gross receipts
sate the Judge further tho bidding Is free und
unrestricted by the statute and It therefore
cannot he said that a hid of the entire gross re
rrlptsis without statutory sanction In fact It
wnlil hu Ilpolbll for either the Comptroller
or the court to assume to define I limit Inside of
the maximum of time statute beyond which no
liiddlng should go
Any bill above the gross receipts he Intimates
would be Illegal I his leaves the Comptroller
with an Illegal hlghc bid on his hands Inc
wih lot per cent bid Declared legal to cipher
out for himself what to do about It

AtnANV March SOOor Morton today sent
the foilowingepecial message to the Legislature
To tht lalilaturn
S For n nnnibar of years there has been A
strung and constantly growing sentiment In
time city of New York In favor > of I reform
In the public school vstem of tlmt city
I 1m been conceded by all persons who are
familiar with time subject that tho laws lelallng
thereto were In need of revision While there
halo been frequent amendments time general
schema bat romnlncd unchanged though It was
adopted when practically the whole city lay bo
low Fourteenth street anti tho tipper portion
wain spiricly settled nnd almost rural com
munlty The law divider limo rispom lblllty for

Education appointed by the Mayor from thin
city at largo an twentyfoilr local Hoards of
School Trustees appointed by tho Hoard of lid
uiutlon from each nf the wattle In tho city tho
trustees being charged with the employment of
teachers
ii The flan wa not an unusual one In the cities
of the Plate at time time of Its adoption but has
lone since been discarded by thin other cities
while strange to say It I retained In tho metropolis
tropolis to the needs and conditions of which It
Is more Illy adapted than perhaps to any com
munity Iho attention of tho Legislature has
for several years been called to tho subject hit
for one reason and another no practical results
have been achieved Tho people of our first city
are entitled to primacy In the great bulwaik of
our Institutions this common nchoot A subject
sO close to thu citizen as thu education of hit
ctzon ucaton
children demands tho patriotic and clouted
consideration of the lawmaking power
A comprehensive bill entering the admin
istration of tlio public schools In the city of New
York has been Introduciit retaining with
somewhat limited powers tho trustees another
bill proposing nothing new for this sstiMn ex
cept tho abolition of this trustees tins ben
offered Tho Senate Committee on itles hay
ing these bills In charge has reported to Hint
House a bill containing tim provision of tho
tnt mentioned hill hut abolishing tho triiR
tees and investing their powers and dutIes In
the Hoard of Education I
Tho committee bill A met with general
approbation including thu earnest support of
tho metropolitan press of a large number of
thoughtful women anti men and of cducatori
vvlio e experience and qualifications make their
Judgment valuable No opposition as fur as I
am aware has developed except that otTorcd bv
tXCOlt
persons directly or Indirectly connected with
tbo present system
The existing law Is antiquated and wholly
Inadequate The division of duty leads to con
fusion and Uncertainty In administration and
renders It dlfllcnlt to fix rc pon lblllty I Is i
respectfully suggested that any measure that
retains tho ward trustee plan must fail of ac
complishing I the ends desired
1 appeal to the Legislature t promptly
enact a law abolishing tho trustee h glom and
making enlightened provision for the tfllcicnt
government of time public schools on limos In
keeping with the most approved methods and
modern thought on this vital question Iho
importance of this subject and tim advanced I
sole of the session constrain mo to communi
cate my views In this manner to the IoKistaturo
IEVi P MonroN
When the message was read In tho Assembly
It was ordered tabled and printed without do
bate A discussion followed Its reading in the
printed Senate but It was finally tabled and ordered
This Is rather an unusual document paid
Senator Cantor when the message had been
read I suggest that the Cities Committee and
the society of ladles who have Interested them
selves so ranch In this matter 20 to see theliov I
ernor and havo him frame the bill he desires
Perhaps tho Governor has tho right to scud In t
message on legislation but to tend In a menage
declaring what a bill should bo Is trespassing on
the prerogatives of tho Legislature
Senator Loxow Interruptlngl Is the Senator
debating the Uovcrnor6 mos nge 7
Senator Cantor Iho message Is before the
Senate
benator Lexow I movn that the mossaep lie
on the table There Is nothing I beforo time Senate I
senator Cantor crr tl oor The Jovirn
or has no right to suggest just what bills should
be passed The Legislature has to determine
the measures to ho passed and their provisions
When the bills react tho Governor ho may ask
that be recalled for amendment hi I
they rcllld amentlenl or > may
exercise his privilege of veto I Is I thought to
coerce the Legislature Not only Is I tho message
not fair to the Legislature but Is unwarranted
and Impertinent
Senator Stranahan I am amazed at thin re
marks of the Senator fiom tho Twentieth fan
tor knowing his usual fine cense of propriety I
urn amazed at his l criticism of the Executive
Had the Senator rellectrd before ho spoke he
would rever have openly made tho ciltklm
Like action has often hen taken hydnvernors I
of the State Precedents and practice hays
given him authority and control nls action 1
know of many Instances of the Ixecutivo send
ing In messages suggesting tho enactment of
specific legislation
Senator Cantor Give us an instance i
Senator Stranahan n Jov Hill Kent In a message
suggesting specific Worlds Hair legislation and
alto Intimated that tho legislation outlined In
his message wtuld I ho approved by him I
Senator Cantor The Legislature I was dead
locked on that measure then Tho measurew as
a vitally Important one
Senator btranahan No more vitally Important
than this measure concerning the schools of
New York city 1 movo that the message lie
on the table and be printed
The motion to table was adopted without
further debate or objection

them and no suro directing mind to control
their Intonations la their responses tn one an
