' -tHat motion enjoining the Insurgents and Greek
2jB troops not to attack the Turkish forts at Kls-

IiOSDoy, March 23. In theHouse of Commons
to-day Mr. C. N. Curzon, in reply to a question
bjr Sir Charles Dllke, said that the Ooremment
had not received any proposals from Oreeoa
looking to a compromise with the powers be
yond what was contained in Greece's supphv
tnentary note, which had already been made
known to the House.
It teemed, however, that the Greek Minister
at Paris had mads verbal communications to M.
Hanotaux. the French Minister of Foreign
Affairs, but none such had been made to the
Government of Great Britain.
In reply to a question by Mr. John O. 8. Mo-
Nelll, Mr. Cunon said that Turkey was not
taking any part in the blockade of Cretan ports,
and that Turkish merchant vessels in entering
i the ports of Crete would be subject to the same
V restrictions as were Imposed upon Teasels of
S other nations.
The Athens correspondent of tne Chroniclt
telegraphs that M. Onoo, the Russian Minister,
", at the audience given to him yesterday by King
1 George, merely presented to his Majesty letters
'l from the Czar and the Dowager Empress of
I Russia. The letter of the Czar contained 50,000
j , roubles for the benefit of the Cretan refugees in
,,-.',' Athens. M. Onoa has just returned from St.
ATmcts, March 23. It la denied here that a
collision has occurred between the Turks and
Greeks at Placa, on the frontier of Eplrus.
CoNST-urrrtorix, March 23. The Turkish
newspapers, in their comments upon the block
ade of Crete, remark upon the pociflo attitude
of the powers toward Turkey. Their attitude,
; they say, is conformable with the rights ana
political Interests of the Porto and furnishes
fresh proof of the striking success that has
I been gained by the Sultan. It also testifies) to
the friendship of the powers for the Porte, and
their solicitude for the peace of the world.

Jim Asks ror Another right, bnt the Champion
njo Ue Uas Retired.
Ban FnANCtsco, March 23. James J. Corbett
and Robert Fitzslmmons will never meet in
tho prize ring for another championship battle.
This question was practically decided to-day
when tho two pugilists mot in the barroom of
tho Baldwin Hotel and talked over their plans
quietly and dispassionately. There were no
threatening gestures and no load talk,
Corbett waited all the morning for a meeting,
nnd when Bob arrived from Sacramento, Jim
asked him if he would tako a drink,
"I don't mind," said Bob.
They walked to the barroom and both ordered
non-lntoxlcants. Thiy were immediately sur
rounded by a curious crowd.
" now do you feci," asked Corbett.
" I feel oil right," answerod Bob. " My arms
are a little sore and stiff and my thumb is very
sore. The doctor says It is broken."
"I injured my left thumb early In the game,"
said Corbett, " when I caught you on tho fore
head." "Mine was hurt in the second round," said
Bob, " when I swung on your head and landed
too far around."
" I tell you, Bob, people told mo you were slow
and easy. I wish those men who told me had
been in front of you on March 17. You won
and beat me fairly and squarely."
"Well," 'replied Fitzslmmons, " I can assure
you that you are the cleverest man I ever met in
" I want to fight you again." said Corbett
"You must talk to my manager," answered
Julian, overhearing the remark, replied that
Bob had done enough fighting. " He has fought
mora than any man living during a space of
seven years," said Julian, "and he will not fight
again If T can rule. His wife wants him to re
tire, anil ho will do so."
"Then I am to understand that there is not
another chance for me I" said Corbett.
" I don't think so," replied Julian.
"Well, all right," remarked Corbett In a
downhearted way. " But I should like to have
one more try. You fought Maher twice; why
not Rive another chance to me I"
" Because I have retired." said Fitzslmmons,
" and I am going to settle down."
The crowd had now become so thick that
Corbett asked Bob and Julian to step to one side
to talk privately concerning a second fight, and
they moved to the settee and spoke in whispers.
Their conversation was very short and evidently
disappointing to Corbett, Judging from his looks.
After the meeting Corbett sat down quietly at
a table in the cafe and discussed his plana for
the future with a representative of tho United
" I don't think Fitzslmmons and I will ever
get together again." said Jim. " ne Is evidently
sincere In his determination to retire. As I
said before, I was In shape to put up tbe best
tight of my life the day I went against Fitzslm
mons at Carson, although he defeated me fair
and square. You must admit, though, and he
admits himself, that I punished him hard. I
hurt my bands, but aside from that I
did not carry away a mark. In other words I
was the better man and put up the best fight
until he caught me that heart punch and shut off
my wind. There will always be a doubt in the
public mind as to who is the belter man, and I'd
give all I possess in tho world to get another
show at him. If he really means to retire and
does not tlsh after any soft marks, I will let him
enjoy his victory In peace, but should he take on
another man before giving a chance to me to
even the score, you'll see trouble."

The Aldermen went into Committee; of tha

tunnel plan of teRapid Transit Commissioners
and Lawson X. Fuller spoke in opposition to the
scheme, and said he didn't believe one of the
Rapid Transit Commissioners would Invest five

After several representatives from taxpiyera'
asMJclations on the north side had spoken In
favorof tho tunnel scheme, the committee arose
and Alderman Goodwin offered a resolution
that the plans of the commission be approved.
ThH was the signal for an outburst of eloquence
among the Aldermen. President Jeroloman,
who Is opposed to the tunnel plan, spoke for
thirty minutes, and In his remarks he told the
Tammany Aldermen, who favored the plan to a
man, that they wero Inconsistent. "Next fall,"
be said, "your orators will be telling the tax
payers about tho extravagance of Mayor
Strong's administration, and yet you are willing,
nay, you are almost falling over each otber, in
your mad haste to saddle this great burden of
debt upon the city."
Aldermen Hall, Goodman, Marshall, and
Koonan also spoke, and tho resolution was
finally adopted nt 0:15 o'clock last evening by a
vote of 23 to 3. President Jerolorann and Alder
men Dwyer nnd Parker voted In the negative,
The resolution will now go to tho Mayor, and If

CHARTER GOES THROUGH.
TBE AS8E3MZT TASSED XT UT A
VOTE OF US TO S3.
All bat (Iz Republican nnd Twelve Democrats
Voted ror It Creen and Trainer Raised n
Row ftqnolched After They Had Shown
What They Could De All Amendments Lost.
Auunv, March 23. Tho Greater New York
charter was passed by the Assembly to-day by a
vote of 11B to 28. All but six Republicans voted
for It, tho exceptions being Mathewson and
Relnhard, who bcllevo that their districts on the
north tide ore opposed to some provisions of tho
bill Murray of Kings, Stelner of Erie, Sanger
of Oneida, and Robblns of Allegany. The last
are usually counted upon to oppose anything in
the nature of a party measure.
Twelve Democrats voted for the bill. They
were P. J. Andrews. Fitzgerald, Hoffman, Mao
Cabe, and T. P. Sullivan of Now York; Cain,
Cullon, French, andZurnot Brooklyn; Kennedy
of Long Island City, and Ooughlln of Buffalo.
All of the Brooklyn members, both Democrats
and Republicans, many of whom were active in
fighting consolidation last year, voted for the
charter, excepting Murray, a Republican, and
Bchmid, a Democrat. They explained that they
did this on the assurance of thoRopubUcaulood
ers that due consideration would bo given here
after to such amendments as they desired to
propose In the interests of Brooklyn.
The opposition to the bill was farcical and
palpably Insincere It was led by those mem
bers of the minority who fancy that they will
commend themselves to their constituents by
obstructing every piece of Republican legisla
tion, and whose idea of parliamentary tactics Is
restricted to making a hubbub and crying
out that they havo been treated out
ragoously. Those who led in to-day's row,
for it cannot bo called a parliamentary fight,
were Assemblymen Finn, Trainor, Roche, and
Green, all of New York. They did not pretend
to speak for Tammany Hall, and several of their
associates in that organization voted for the
charter. As a matter of fact, there was an un
derstanding between tho Republicans and tho
Democrats that the ostensible opponents of the
bill should hare plenty of opportunity to offer
amendments and to speak on the amendments,
and that the speeches on tho charter generally
should be confined to Messrs. Finn and Robblns
in opposition and Messrs. Austin and Nixon In
support of tho measure. As soon as the bill was
under discussion, however, the little band of ob
structionists began their uproar. No definite
plan was pursued and there was no definite pur
pose in view.
Mr. McKeown of Brooklyn, who voted for the
bill on its final passage, started off by suggest
ing, halt In joke, that the bill bo read through.
The bill comprises 000 pages. Mr. Finn sug
gested instead that It bo read by sections. Then
Mr. Roche renewed Mr. McKeown 's suggestion,
but soon withdrew It. Next Mr. Trainor, who
can shout moro loudly than any other man in
the Assembly, renewed the motion.
" This is done only to delay the bill," remarked
" The Chair has no right to Impugn ray mo
tives," shouted Mr. Trainor, and 8peakcr
O'Grady directed the Clerk to begin reading tho
bill. From time to time amendments icru
oifcrcd nnd were voted down. Mr. Leonard
wanted the salarypf tho President of the Coun
cil increased to 7,00. Mr. McKeown wanted
Councilman to receive $2,500 and Aldermen
2,000 a year. Mr. Roche tried to offer on
amendment to a section after it had been passed,
"find when Speaker O'Orady refused to entertain
It. he mode a speech in which he deUarcd that
his rights hod been violated, that the Con
stitution w.is In danger of bclnic overthrown,
nnd that tho charter was being "Jammed
Sociker O'Gradr waited until Mr. Roche got
through and told him that his amendment
would be considered after the bill had been re. id
and before It was put on Its passage. After tho
reading had gone on two hours and a number of
amendments had been voted on, Mr. Nixon, the
Republican leader, ald that. Inasmuch as tbo
DeniocraU had not adhered to their agreement
not to resort to dilatory tactics, he would moro
that the Clerk read only the numbers of the sec
tions, affording opportunity for offering amend
ments and speaking on them. Finn and Trainor
declared that tho Constitution gave them tho
rlgbt to have the bill read through.
Mr. Nixon retorted that that question had been
settled In Congrcs.and Speaker O'Grady quoted
from the Senate Juurnal of two years aeo a de
cision on the same point by Lieut.-Gov. ttaxton,
known as one of the best and fairest presiding
officers the Legislature ever had. Mr. Nixon's
motion was adopted. 5 to 2d.
Mr. Forrester proposed an amendment to In
crease the pay of Brooklyn policemen to that
given the members of tho New York fonc.
This, like all tho otber amendments, was voted
down. Then Trainor broke loose again. He
wanted tho next section read through. Speaker
O'Orady decided against him, and he appealed
from the decision. Speaker O'Grady sold that,
although tho motion was a dilatory one. ho
would entertain it, but would entertain no other
similar motions. The Choir was sustained, 102 to
ly. Several other amendments were voted on,
and Mr. Green thought It was time for him to
make another piny, lie oddressed tho Choir.
" Does tho gentleman with to olfer an amend
ment I" inquired Speaker O'Grady.
" It's none of your business, shouted Mr.
Green. "You can't bulldoro me. I claim the
recognition of tho chair. You can't bulldoze
me. I want my Constitutional rights."
Speaker O'Orady directed the Clerk to proceed
with the reading and Ignored Mr. Green, who
continued to shout: "You can't bulldoze me."
Mr. Green made a pretence at being very Indlg
ii.int, but finally burst into laughter and sat
When the Hection relating to tho Police De
partment was reached, Mr. Trainor proposed an
amendment providing for a slnicle-hcadcd Polho
Commission, and he and Mr. Oreen argued tho
?ucsilon seriously on its merits. They were de
oated, 69 to 27.
The last amendment offered was by Mr. Finn
for a referendum. It was defeat) d, 81 tolll.and
the bill was placed upon Its final pa"ugc. On
the roll call saveral members explained tlielr
otes briefly. Mr. Robblns, tho Independent Re
publican, said that he had refrained from mak
ing a fight against the bill, as he recognized that
the majority was against him and the question
had been settled last year, when he fought con
solidation at every step. He had not changed
his mind about consolidation. It was a gront
mistake for rural members to vote for it. It
meant that hereafter New Vork would control
In legislation, and would be tho dominant politi
cal bower in tho State.
Mr. Wilson lllep.. Kings) In voting for tho bill
said that Brooklyn needed many public Imnrovi'
ments nnd "proposed to grab Now York's Treas
ury to bar for tbem with." The bill also com
mended itself to him as a piece of charity and
benevolence to the Dcmocratlo party, which
would control the city by 70,000 majority. This
statement was received with merriment by the
Denitxrats, who had been ostensibly opposing
the passage of the bill.
The charter is a special order in the Senate for
to-morrow morning, but It probably will not be
passed before Thursday, as Senntor Strauahau
wishes to glvo full tlino for debate. Senator
C'.uitor, the Democrntlc leader, wllloffer amend
ments for a single-headed Poileo Commission
md for a single-chambor Legislature. It Is not
likely that tbo farcical features of tho Assembly
debate will bo repeated in the Senate.

oiio of the oldest banking institutions in North
Tozns, with a paid-up capital of $200,000 nud
a surplus of 950,000, made an usslgnment to

Depositors became alarmed and a run began.
All checks presented yesterday were promptly
cashed. Tbe bank officials foresaw that If the

BLACK MAT SVEAK OVT.
He Thinks of CIrarlnr the Air wllh a Memo
randum. Aloant, March 23. Gov. Black, It was an
nounced to-night, is thinking of Issuing a memo
randum concerning tho Lautcrbach Metropoli
tan Police bllL He has not positively decided to
do so and ho certainly will not, It was said, ex
press his views until after bo has conversed
with Mr. Lauterbach, Representative Qulgg,
and National Committeeman Glbbs, allot whom.
It is understood, elthor separately or collective
ly, will visit Gov. Black and moko a final appeal
in favor of the Lnutorbach measure.
Mr. Lauterbach, Mr. Qulgg. and Mr. Glbbs
havo been expected nil day to arrive In Albany.
It was said that thoy would come to-morrow.
Gov. Black, it was announced, would glvo them
a cordial welcome and be glad to bear their
argumonts why the Lautcrbach bill should
bo introduced. It is not bcllovcd that tho
views of elthor Mr. Lautcrbuch, Mr. Qulgg,
or Mr. Glbbs will alter tho views of
Gov. Black, for the reason that the Governor, it
is said, has already refused to Interfere In tho
municipal affairs of Utlca and Troy, and that ho
could not mako an exception In favor of New
York city, even though It Is well known that tho
I'ollco Board is in a demoralized condition.
Nevertheless, Mr. Lauterbach, Mr. Qulgg, and
Mr. Glbba will bo heartily welcomed by Gov.
Black should they decide to come to Albany.
Gov. Black, It was said to-day, is averse to do
parting from his customary rule of sllonco over
reports In newspapers, but within the last two
or three weeks so many erroneous reports havo
been spread broadcast concerning his attitude
toward his fellow Republicans that Gov. Black
may decide to say something about those re
ports. One newspaper correspondent is under
stood to havo said:
"There Is no troublo between Gov. Black nnd
Senator Piatt, but I proposo to make trouble
This remark Is said to havo been repeatod to
Gov. Black, and It was stated to-night by Repub
licans who have talked with him that he
is considering tho Issuing of a memorandum In
order to put an end. If Dosslblo, to the erroneous
reports. These Republicans said that Gov.
Black was inclined to bo patient and silent, but
he did not propose to have his attitude either on
a pubilo measure or to his fellow Republicans
misrepresented by newspaper writers who can
didly say that they are bent on making trouble.
Gov. Black will consider the stop serious
ly, and If he does decide to lssuo the
memorandum he will speak out in meeting and
declare that he, with aO his Republican friends,
is interested In the success of tho Republican
Early In the Slate and the nation, and that w hllo
ealthy differences of opinion should always ex
ist, and for that matter are always of servlco In

A JMtlalerratlon ef Many Associations and Com
inltteee Itxpeeted Cvunael ror Leading Rail
roads In the West Adflee Them to With
draw from All ThelrAsreemcnlsastoRate
CiilCioo, March 23. Within a week it Is ex
pected by railroad officials that not ono of the
organizations having jurisdiction over passen
ger and freight rates will bo In existence, as a
result of tbo decision of tho United States
Supreme Court that all associations which have
for tholr purposo tho mulutcnanco of agreed
rates and tho division of traffio are Illegal.
Tho worl: of disintegration began in this city
to-day. General Solicitor Ivcnna of tho Santa
Fe system advised tho traffio manager of that
road to withdraw Immediately from all freight
associations, it Is believed Mr. Kenna will also
advlso tho Santa Fo's withdrawal from all pas
senger associations to-morrow.
A long consultation with othor attorneys of
tho Chicago, Milwaukeo and St. Paul road was
held by General Solicitor Peck. Before tbe
meeting of lawyers Mr. Peck stated he would
advise the St. Paul's withdrawal at once from
nil associations. The counsel for tho Chicago,
Rock Island and Pacific read advised the offi
cers of that road that the only legal course to
pursue was to sever connection with all associa
tions. On trustworthy authority it was said that tho
following other Important lines havo also de
cided to giro similar notice of withdrawal:
Wisconsin Central, St. Louts and Son Francisco,
Minneapolis and St. Louis and Chicago Great
Western. Tho peremptory action of all these
companies means the certain disruption
of tho following associations and commit
tees: Westorn Freight Association, Trans
continental Passenger Association. Western
Passenger Association. Southwestern Traf
fio Association, Trans-Missouri Freight As
sociation, Southwestern Passenger Committee,
Mississippi Valley Freight Commltteo. St. Paul
and Minneapolis Rato Association, Colorado
Freight Association, tho 1-ooal Passenger Asso
ciations uf St. Louis, Colorado Springs. Pueblo,
Denver and Chicago; local Freight Agents Asso
ciation of Chicago, St. Louis Association of
(ienerol Passenger Agonf", Chicago nnd St.
Louts Traffic Association, Western Classification
Commltteo and Minneapolis Terminal Freight
The officers of various Western roads are
divided In opinion on tho effect which this dis
ruption would havo on rates. Officials of tho
Santa Fo said they saw no reason why rates
should become demoralized. Representatives of
the Chicago and Alton, notably Vice-President
and General Manager Chappcll. said they did
rnt eee how rato wars could bo prevented.
The general opinion, however. Is that a period
of widespread and disastrous rate disturbance Is
nt hand, because onch ro.nl 'can now do as It
r leases and cut rntes openly, regardless of the
nterstato Commerce law. Rallroid men and
shippers ngrco that such conditions will workin-
jury to the general public, giving big shippers
and merchants who get lowest rates an advan
tage over competitors.
At the headquarters of the Western Freight
Association the Board of Administration did
nothing, although it has been in dally session
for weeks, and an important meeting on division
of traffic was called for to-day. Chairman Don
ald of the Central Passenger Association changed
the opinion be gave yesterday, admitting the de
cision .ilTected passenger associations.
it is the general opinion, also, that differen
tials, which aro an agreed lower tariff given to
certain roads at a dliidvantage by comnctl
tnr. will have to bo abolished. Some of them
have been in force twenty years and have an lm
jiortant bearing on competition between rail
and water routes from Chicago eastward.

Tbe Supreme Court Decision Vlakee sUlatloa
by Confreae eceoary.
Mr. M. E. Ingalls. tho President of tho Big
Four and the Chesapoike and Ohio roods, who
Is stopping at tho Waldorf, was asked by The
Srs reporter last night what he thought of tho
Trans-Missouri Freight Association decision by
tho United States Supreme Court and its possi
ble effects. He said:
" I am not greatly disappointed. I drew the
original agreement of tho General Traffic Asso
ciation, and I drew It on a lino with the decision
of tho Circuit Court " hlch has just now been re-
orsed. If that decision had been upheld I em
sure that our agreement would have been. But
at the tlmo I hud my doubts about it. When
that Circuit Court decision Is reversed by tho
Supremo Court It seems to mo that there Is no
possibility of an association or tin agreement
legally maintaining rates.
"Now, I am not sorry that the decision has
been rendered, for two reasons. In the first
place, whilo claiming to havo tho law with us,
wohaehad uonothnt gnvous any protection,
and wn havo rolled too much on tho association
and tho agreement, which was a rope of sand.
Instead of upon our individual efforts. In the
second place,. I have always beliovod that
we needed legislation so that thn rallway
trafllr, whleh amounts to one-tlfth of all
the business of tho land, should bo brought
within the law. Whenever wo havo tried
to get legislation wo havo been met by
statements that it was not necessary; that wo
wero acting under tho law. This decision
effectually settles that, and It ought to impress
uion any reasonable body of legislators that
there must be legislation specifically legalizing
contracts among railways for tho maintenance
of rates and the distribution of traffic."
" What legislation would you suggest I" asked
"I should bo In favor, said Mr, Ingalls, " of
legislation giving to tho Interstate Coinmerro
Commission tho same authority that tbo Board
of Trade has in England. That Is, thnt the rail
roads might mako ugrm ments for thodlvMon of
traffic and the maintenance of rates, and provid
ing that. In case of any complaint that oxiessivo
rates were charged, the Interstate Commerce
Commission should hear the cneo and their de
o'slon upon it should bo final until it was re
viewed in a higher court. This would aid com
merce and would Injure no ono. The ques
tion will ho asked. What will tho rallruads
do under tho present conditions! I nm going
abroad for a short stay, but my advlco to
those with whom I talked to-day has been that
this New York caso against the Joint Traffio
Association should be taken to Washington at
oneo under nn agreement with the District At
torney, nnd tho Supremo Court should bo askod
for an Immediate hearing. If that court still
adhered to Its decision, then nil nssoclitions
should bedisbnnded. and each railway, through
Its proper officials, should mako Its own rotes.
"1 do not understand from tills decision that
thcrolsauy objection to thn railroad managers
meeting and agreeing Unit thn tariff shall bo
uniform. I understand thai after the tariff is
once made, any agreement or association fur
controlling the business Is Illegal. It'l!l put
the burden on the general freight anil passrngor
agents, and I am Inclined to think that for u
ti'uoat least thciowlll lie no Improvement in
rates. It will bo hard on some of tho wenk lines
and will unduly help the strong ones. This will
