The spirit of emancipation which is
purging through tho land changing cling
ing vines Into sturdy-oaks has led to n
rebellion In tho Cpres ladles Society,
with heathiuarters nt the Terrace (larden,
lift Fast Fifty-eighth street. So thn
woniPti have gone to court to overthrow
the domination of eighteen "passive men"
members, who although they pay no dues,
cannot vote anil reap nnnp of tho nonoflts
of the society, have been losslng things
to l heir hearts' content.
This, at least, is the allegation made in
the paerH filed yesterday afternoon by
Louis CI. Frey of 31 Liberty street and
Harry Kdwards of 15 'Nassau street, in
what promises to bo the celebrated case
of Cornelia Simon vs. Jhco1 J. Benedict.
The first step Is an application for an al-
inMnHlt'n wrll .if iniituljtmllA onmnpllinc
J.Mr. Henedict us president of the society
i to recognize certain motions and amend
' ments which it adopted would result in
tho elimination of tho mere men board of
directors and tho placing of the society s
control in the hands of the 275 active
women members. As only the wives of
the directors can vote, it is certain that
the 275 indignant women members will
make short work of tho men If they ever
get a chance.
The Ceres Frauen Verein, named by
German seakilig city ladies after the
goddess of agriculture, was organized
back in 182 for charitable purKes.
Its chief scheme was to provide a fund
, . . , ... ,,,, r-,l.-o
". c..j ..v -
12111 JUSl as soon us sue u iuun ,
It also provided sick benefits and aimed
to be a help in other ways to sisters in
trouble. Men have always been listed as
passive members. " but a man has always
been president of the society, the late
" 1 E . tt,a Intt
Max Zenn having held down that job
for about thirty-five years. Mr. Benedict
is en loving his second term.
In 1007 the "passive members "suggested
that the Ceres Frauen erein should in
vest its money in bonds and mortgages
nnd that tho organization should be
inoorjiorated under the laws of tho State
of New York. As usual the sisters left
the business of incororation to the men
folks ond when tho papers were filed the
Ceres Frauen Verein had become the
' Ceres Ijidies Society with eloven men as
the incorporating directors.
I According to aflldavits made by Mrs.
I Rose tioldschmidt, the vice-president of
tho society, who lives at 235 Nest Hath
btroot, Mrs. Cornelia Simon. Mrs. Rosa
Frey and others proposed by-laws to
the' constitution preparing the way for
woman's domination in tho organiza
i.nlil at Terrace (iarden on Octolsr 20
last . As soon as Mr. Benedict heard them
read, the affidavits say, ho called a recess
later declined to entertain action
ihm. taving he would refer them to
nn attorney for his opinion.
Of course that made trouble, bona
Adler, who knows a lot about parliamen
larc proceetlurp, moved that the amend
ments Isi put on first reading, and whpn
Mr Benedict declined to Put her motion
she appealed from the decision of the
chair. Mr. Benedict wouldn't entertain
On November II there was another
slormv session ill which Mr. Benedict
continued to sit tight und the amendments
made absolutelv no progress, although
Mr Benedict did explain that "an eminent
corporation counsel" hod declared that
the proposed amendments were Illegal.
By this time tho sisters were terribly
annis.nl over the situation. They hud
in.cioo in bank mid were cxpccti! con
liniie to my titles. The funds were for
the iK'tiefil solely of sisters and here were
the non-duos aying brothers refusing
to let them vole on a proiosition in which
they had lhe most vital interest! Tho
more thev thought about it the more
indignant' thev became, and finally Ihey
decided to demand their rights. So they
went lo law

I wish that we knew what the policy of

part of the city are Inseparable, but the
railroad problem should be dealt with
For that reason I think that It Is very
unfortunate that the Board of Estimate
has not already adopted a policy relative
to the West Side tracks. If It had then

clogged with car floats for all time to

with lower jiannaiian.

The ereat disadvantage about going
uptown to Forty-fourth street Is the Brest
expense. There are two iieras wihlh
will contribute to this expense. First,
we will have to acquire Immensely val

New York Central Railroad, nnd second,
the great cost of rock excavation under
What 1 regret Is not so much the exca
vation Into the already narrow Island of
Manhattan, but the excavation Into the
dock fund, which will be narrowed by
manv millions before wo get through with
the pier development between Forty-fourth
and Fifty-ninth streets.
As for the length of time that It will
take to build the big new piers above
Forty-fourth street, all of them can prob.
ably be constructed aa quickly as- one or
two. but It Is not necessary to to to the
expense of building all of them at once.
It would take several years three years
