Comptroller Prendergnst. who feels
that Kings county was intentionally
slighted when Oscar Straus appointed
a iStato legislative committee of tho Pro
giessive party without including County
Chairman Timothy Ti. Woodruff, was not
apiieased last night when he learned that
Mr Woodruff and himself were likoly to
l among the additional six members
which the committee is to select .
"If I am appointed I don't know
whether I'll serve or not," paid Mr. Pren
detgast. "I haven't 'decided. In my
opinion Kings county would have been
ignored altogether if 1 had not protested.
Incidentally I fail to see why nine men
who are themselves designated by somo-
body else should w empowered to put
Kings county on the map."
Mr Prondergast has been invitod to
attend the. meeting of State Progressives
at thn Holland House to-morrow, but he
will not be there. He said last night that
his physician had ordered him to Itake
wood, whither he will go to-day.
The "nrotest" to which Mr I'rcndercast
referred was embodied in a sarcastic
statement wherein ho said.
The Progressive party, no mutter how
high Its ideals, if it is to hen political party
ill have to be conducted Hicording to

Kins was the first county in Ihe .Stale

opinion. In the whole country, lis head,
Mr Woodruff, is one of the ablest, political
organizers In the I'nlted Stales and lias

said Mr. I'rendergast in a final thrust,

It is no secret that Mr. Prendergast
himself rather expecti"d to be nominated
for Governor at Syracuse. Home of his
friends have attributed his failure to the
ofTorta of State Chairman William H.
Hotchkiss, although Mr. Hotchkiss in
sists that ho rcmnined neutral in the con
test that went on behind the scenes before
Suspender Jack Ma gee stampeded the
convention to Oscar Straus, Mr. Woodruff
supported Mr. Prcndergast.

that he did not care to comment on Air.

will return to-night from his Adirondack

FOR upwards of a quarter of a century Steinway
6c Sons have been pursuing the policy of sharing
their profits with the buying public a The
gradual increase of their output and resources, coupled
with the concentration of their plants and the em
ployment of the most modem methods of manufac
turing, have enabled Steinway & Sons to produce and
sell their pianos at a lower rate than ever. A nm
small grand piano (5 ft. 6 in.) in a mahogany case
at the extremely low figure of $750 is the splendid
result. Thus the great problem of giving the best arti
cle at the most reasonable cost has been successfully
solved. Steinway & Sons invite the careful mspection
and critical examination by the public of this their
latest great achievement in the art of pianoforte building.

WAIVES RULE TO KEEP VETERAN
Rrnrlliiit Railroad Itrsclnri 70 Year
HrKillntlnii for Chief Clerk.
Philadelphia, Nov. 17. The Reading
Railway Company has temporarily re
scinded the rule requiring employees ta
retire at the age of 70 years In order
that the company may still avail It
self of the services of Jnmet M. Lan
dls, the veteran chief clerk of that cor
porntlon. Cnder the rules Mr. Landls would
reach the ne limit on Thursday next,
but because of his remarkable health
and vigor he will be continued In the
service of the company Indefinitely. He
Is regarded as a walking encyclopedia
of railroad knowledge, nnd since he hai
been with the Rendlnt; since 1860. he
knows more about the system than anr
other. man In Its employ.
When Mr. Landls waa called Into
President Baer's office yesterday and
told that he nerd make no arrangement
to retire yet his face lit up and he
pecmed as though he was as fresh as
the young boy who entered tho eenice
of the Readlnn fifty-two years ago.
