Not' a negative vote was recorded

the vote on the compensation bill was 35
to 6.
Talk on all the measures In the As
sembly was desultory and no strenuous
opposition was voiced.
After adjournment at S o'clock to. night
the Senators and Assemblymen called on
Gov. Glynn to shake hands with him. He
congratulated them, all parties alike, for
their services for the people during this
week's session and thanked them for their I
support. '
The 1!13 session of the le gislature al-1
most broke all records and did break the
special session record. The legislature,
which usually ends Its session In April or
May each ear, held sessions each of the
twelve months this year.
The extra session was called for June
1 by Gov. Sutler to consider direct prim
ary iegllatlon and the bill passed to-day.
The extra session was Gov. Sulxer's own
undoing, as be could not have been lm-(
peached If he had not assembled the Legis
lature by his call.
Democratic l.eadera Pleased.
The Democratic leaders were pleased with
the result of this wis'k's session, and acting
Lieutenant-Governor Wagner Issued a state
ment reviewing the more Important re
form legislation which will be placed
u)ii the statute books by the signature
of Gov Glynn to-morrow.
In the Senate the workmen's competi
tion bill was nttacked by the Republican
leader. Kloii It. llro.vn. and he was Joined
In his opiHultlon by live other Republican
Senators, who voted against the bill. They
were Senators Argetslnger of Monroe,
Godfiey of Cattaraugus, Sage of Albany.
Thompson of Niagara and Walters of
iiniinilaga.
Senators llussey. Palmer and Stivers,
Ilepubllcans, voted with the thlrry-two
Democratic Senators for the bill, which
needed only twenty-six votes to pass.
Senator Hrown Insisted thnt the bill
should apply to all cinsses of workmen
where the per?onal nlatlon of master to
servant does not exist so that It would
Include all large enterprises. He be
lieved each line of trade should bear Its
own loss, and he protested against the
establishment of the pension for life
system.
He favored bulk payment to the In
lured or the families left behind, Pen
sion systems abroad had shown grave
defects which could not be overcome,
Senntor lirovvn Insisted.
Senators Foley, Wagner, Blauvelt, Mc
Cbilan and Griffin explained the pro
visions of the bill, insisting that as It was
being passed primarily In the Interest of
labor It naturally leaned toward that class
In Its provisions, although the employer
was given full protection.
Senator Itlauvelt asu-rted thnt of nil
the workmen's compensation bills passed
In twenty-two States, the proposed law
for New York State Is most In the Inter
est of labor.
"In most of 'the States," said Senator
Itlauvelt, "the compensation lnw U elec
tive, while In this State It Is to be com
pulsory, and the scale of compensation
Is much higher than In ony other State In
the Union.
"The hill was prepared after a icvlew
of the workings of the laws of uther
States, and after conferences with repre
sentatives of all the interests concerned,
so that ns finally presented it represents
a reasonable compromise af all conflicting
views."
Little Arwarornt on Measures.
The Senate passed the companion bills
to the workmen's compensation bill with
little argument. Senntor Hrown called
attention to the fnct thnt the Democrats
were prompt In appropriating $1S0,000 for
tho Immediate establishment of the work
men's compensation board and the State
Insurance fund, nlthough the law will
not go Into full operation until July 1
next.
"Hut perhaps I should not complain of
thnt," added Senator Hrown. "I thought
you would ask for a good deal mure
money at the outset and I venture the
prediction that It will cost $1,000,000 a
year In the course of a few years."
A dozen Assemblymen spoke when the
compensation hill came up for passage,
but no one opposed It, most of the speak
ers being retiring Assemblymen who
wanted to make valedictory addresses.

CARNEGIE'S GIFT TOO
NEW FOR CATHEDRAL
IkHtitiful Memorial Window for
Old Edifice in Dunferm
line Is Refused.
WILL HE' PUT IN LIRKAKY
Ironmaster's Father, n Scotch
Weaver, Gave Hooks to
Start Institution.
Washington, Dec. 12. Andrew Car
negie, who has been spendln the day In
Washington, calling at the White House,
presiding at the annual meeting of the
Carnegie Peace Foundation, talking peace
with Secretary Itryan and later ban
quetlng, told a story of his recent gift of
a stained glass window to Dunfermline
Cathedral which the recipients could not
accept for the historic edifice.
Several years ago Mr. Carnegie made
up his mind to give a window as a me
morial to his father and mother and de
ceased brother and sister to be Installed
In the great cathedral. He called In the
artists and nrtlsans of the Tiffany studio
to perform the work, and when It was
completed Mr. Carnegie had the beautiful
window shipped across the water to Dun
fermline. Now the municipal guardians of the
ancient cathedral have refused to accept
the gift
'-They came In me," Mild Mr Carnegie,
"and told me that the Tiffany window
would not do. It was too modern alto
gether for tho rest of the building, which
Is more than SOU years old, Dunferm
line Cathedral was built In 1100.
"Already they have a beautiful window
tilling the whole end of the sanctuary In
which Is typified Queen Margaret, tho
patt on saint of Scotland, teaching llttlo
children.
"The memorial window was to till a
small semi-darkened aperture, but the
Tiffany design was anachionous. It did
not embody sacred or historical figures.
"It represented the sun shining upon
a pasture. It was beautiful, but It waa
too beautiful, and It wasn't In the opin
ion of the town folks of Dunfermline
quite fitting for the cathedral.
"So I have determined to Install the
memorial window In the public library of;
Dunfermline. It will be more Intimate
and personal a thing to do this, for my
father Instituted the rlrst circulating li
brary In Dunfermline many years ago.
"He and others of his coworkers In the
weaving mills of my old birthplace got
them together and agreed each to con
tribute as many liooks as they could to
the mutual and cooperative benefit of
thoir fellow townsmen. Then they estab
lished the library In a vacant room of the
mills and from that It grew and grew
until It was moved no less than seven
times, and every tfctne to better quarters.
"The Dunfermline library was the first
that I established. My mother laid Its
cornerstone, and now when It Is about
to be remodelled and enlarged I think I
may fittingly transfer the beautiful Tif
fany window to that place.
"It will have a better even If a lets
hlstorlo and sacred setting, but It is
something of a Joke on the Tiffany people,
Isn't It?"

IlKUt.tN, Dec. 12. The hurried mission
to Japan of Senor de la Uarra, the Mex

much attention In Governmental and dip-1
lomatlc circles.
Senor de la Darra arrived here on Fri
day last He had dinner with American
Ambassador Gerard and left on Saturday
to continue his Journey to Japan. He did
not call at the Foreign Office here. This
Is attributed to the cool reception accorded
to Oen. Felix Diaz when ho was here on

Several of the leading bankers and
financiers, desirous of finding out Senor
de la Hurra's views on the Mexican sit
uation, had conferences with him. They
Informed him that while perhaps the sym
pathy of the iierman press and com
mercial circles was more or less with
Mexico in favor of the recognition of lien.
Huerta, the (lovernment Is supporting
President Wilson and Is not likely to

For this re,. sun they advised the Mexi

of Mexico and for commercial consldera-

would restore order In Mexico and avert
Intervention by the Fnlted States.

Senor de la Harra sunrurrts President

the United States In dictating who should

freedom of the Mexicans.
The German bankers sympathized with
Mexico, but they showed no Inclination to
come to her aid. The general opinion
hero is that Mexico need expect no finan
cial aid In Curope until she has Installed
a Government satisfactory to tho United
States. No Power Is Inclined to embar
rass President Wilson.
Ambassador Gerard explained that the
fnct that he had dined with Senor do la
Harra had no political significance. The
affahs of Mexico, he said, were not even
mentioned at the dinner. The American
envoy added that he had been a special
