Tax Said to Be tho Basis of Objection. Letter from Gould to 11 Iteud at tbo Sleeting To-Day. It was learned this afternoon that the Manhattan Hallway Company hud for mally withdrawn all tlie propositions which It has submitted to tlie Rapid Transit Commission, and that all nego tiations for tho Improvement and ex tension of Its lines aro now at an end. This action was taken at a meeting of the directors of the Company held last evening, and a letter was then sent to the Commission announcing the determination of the Company to have nothing further to do with the matter, Commissioner lltishe was seen this afternoon, but ho would neither atllrtii nor deny the report which was then circulating In Wall street that negotia tions had been broken off. All he would cay wns: "I have received a communication from the .Manhattan Hallway Company, which will be sent to Mr. Stelnway's houso inter this afternoon and read, 1'ntll then I have nothing further to say." President George J. Gould, of the Man hattan road, was more frank. "It Is true," he said, "that tlie Man hattan Company Iiuh withdrawn lis offer to build all the extensions and new routes proposed by the Hapid TrnnBlt Commission, for reasons that It Iiaa stated In a letter to the Commissioners. "As wo could arrive at no agreement with the Commission with regard to Im portant points. It was decided that It would be beat to withdraw entirely. I am not at liberty to make known the contents of the communication sent to the Commissioners. It is for them to do this." The railroad company, as a result of Its negotiations with tho Rapid Transit Commission, had waived all Its objec tions to the plans proposed by the lat ter, with the exception of the rate of compensation to be annually paid to the city in consideration of the priv ileges and franchises granted. The Commission refused to fix this amount at lesa .than & per cent, on tlie.net Jncome of the Company, not deducting the. interest on Its bonded In debtedness of something like ,000.000. .This theCompany wpuld not consent to tTvtind .Insisted, that the deduction of the Interest on Its bonds should be al lowed In computing its net Income. If this weru done it would agree to pay the 5 per cent, tax demanded. This was the rock on which the whole scheme came to grief. Three of the Commissioners, Messrs. Stelnway, lntnan and Hpencer favored the ac ceptance of the Manhattan's proposi tion, but Messrs. Boshe und Htorm re fused to yield, and as' It requires unan imous consent to take any action, ne gotiations were practically brought to an end at the last meeting of the Board. The meeting nt Mr. Stelnway's house will take place at 3.30 this afternoon. It is said that Mr. Spencer Is still 111, and If he Is not present no notion can be taken. Wall street is waiting with much Interest to see what reply the Commission will make to Mr. Uould's latest letter. The Citizens' Industrial Alliance will send another committee to the meeting to demand. In the name of the working people of the west side, that the Com missioners accept the Manhattan Com pany's offer of 3 per cent, taxes and give the people rapid transit. At the last meeting the Cltlxens' Com mittee was refused admittance on the S rounds that the meeting was private. Solutions, substantially the same as above, were left with the Commissioners. Thomas Breen, formerly an Iron man ufacturer of Chester. Pa., has a plan which he purposes to present to the Commissioners. He claims to have a backing of 110,000,000, and will deposit JLOOO.OW as a guarantee of his plan, which Is to buy property, from the Battery to Harlem, and run a road through buildings at the height of the llrst floor.- His road Is to have six tracks, two for local service, two for express, and two for freight (rains. Tlie roadbed would be fifty feet wide and cross streets on steel bridges. Ho estimates the cost of his road at 19.1,000,000, and figures out an Income of 128.000,000 a year. TO-DAY'S APPOINTMENTS.

Iteo tickets SHOT HIMSELF DEAD, Julius Eiperstedt's Suioide Under His Sweetheart's Windows Miss Jubitz Had Positively Refused to Marry Him Her Parents Hsrt Secured a War rant for Ills Arrest. Julius Ksperstedt, a prominent young (ielinun, of Brooklyn, committed sui cide early this morning. Ciuzcd Willi grief over the loss of ! Ills sweetheart and fearing that ho I would be arrested because of a foolish threat to kill her parents for Interfering ' with his love-muklng, Ksperstedt shot himself ut 1,110 A. M. on the sidewalk below his sweelheart'B bedroom window. I at the coiner of Wyona Btrcct and Ful . ton nventie, Kast New Y'ork. I The bullet went through his brain. killing him Instantly. 1 Ksperstedt was ubout thirty-four years old, and lived with Mnjor Charles Wng ' ner, of the Long Island Schuotzenbiind, 1 ut Vt Alabama avenue. Ho was one of the most popular Germans In the Twenty-sixth Ward. He was a member of the Concordia Singing Society, and took an nctlve lu j terest In promoting the welfare of that old organization, Ho was also connected with tbe Kast New Y'ork Elsenkranz, Young Kspenstedt was n tinsmith by trade, and had a good situation In New York. During the Winter of 1801 he attended the Concordia ball, held nt Schulleln's Assembly Booms in Hast New York. There he was Introduced to Miss Annie Jubitz, the daughter of Ferdinand Jubitz, who lived In a large flat-house, I which ho owned, at the corner; of Wyona street and Fulton avenue. Miss Jubitz was very pretty, and was then only 18 years old. Ksperstedt was also considered a handsome fel low, and the two young people became grcutly attached to each other. What Is probably the liest version of the affair, was told by Tspertedt him self. In conversation with ufrlend last Monday night. Ksperstedt, acconifng to the story he told his friend,- spake to Mrs. Jubitz about marrying her daughter. Mrs. Jubitz did not object to his suit, but rather encouraged him. The young man subsequently spoke to his sweethearts father about the matter. He did not get the reply he expected, and then he said the trouble began, which ilnally ended In his re jection. Jubitz hnd learned that his wife had taken kindly tn the prospective match, and he declared that the couple should lie separated. Miss Jubitz continued to receive her lovoT until a few months ago. Mean time she had henrd bad reports con cerning him. Ksperstedt's brother had been in Imsl nes with a man named Schmidt, but the partners quarrelled and tho llrm was dissolved. A relative of Mr. Schmidt 1h accused of spreading the reports affect ing Ksperstedt's character. This rela tive, according to Ksperstedt, told the young -woman that her lover was "no good," and that he had another girl liv ing In Kurope. "That was a deliberate He," sold Ks perstedt, In telling his story, "I never cared for any girl until I met Annie. She was my first love and will be the last." Ksperstedt also found fault with one of the girl's relatives for her part in breaking off the match. Thin relative, when very young, had married unhap pily, and she poured a tale of marital woe Into the young girl's ear. Snortly after this conversation with her relative Miss Jubitz told her lover they must part. After that she refused to see him. He wrote several letters to her, but they were not answered. Lately his letters were returned unopened. He often called at tho house and tried to see her, but she never received him. Several months ago he received 1700 from relatives In Germany, und he then began to spend his money lavishly. He bought new clothes and entertained his friends freely. Ldist Monday he at tended the May festival of the Concordia Singing Society, held at Bernett's l'ark. His small fortune had dwindled to about W or C0. The park was filled with children, and Ksperstedt romped and played with tlie little folks, seemingly forgetful of the sorrow that was. gnawing his heart. One of his friends met him and stopped for a chat. He repeated the whole story, and then declared that he would not live without her. Late that night he called at Jtibltz's houso. He filled the doorway with pav ing stones, and then rapped on the door. Mrs. Qubltz cumo downstairs and opened the door. Ksperstedt renewed his request to see, Annie, but was re fused. "Then I will kill youl" he said, flour ishing a revolver In the air, Mrs. Jubitz slammed the door and went upstairs. Tho following day Ju bitz swore out a warrant for the young man's arrest. The paper was put In the hands of a detective. The ollleor called at Ksper stedt's house to arrest him, but did not find him at home. Yesterday Ksperstedt fold his friend that he was going to kill himself, At 10 o'clock last night he sent a messenger with a letter to Tils friend, Major Wag ner, bidding him good-by, "See that my body Is cremated, and send my ashen to Germany," he wrote. The letter was written in a scruwllng hand, and some of the words wore In distinct. At 1.30 o'clock this morning Ksper stedt went to the house in which his former sweetheart resided. A polloe mun saw him standing on tho sldewulk gazing up at the windows. The ulllcer paid no uttentlou to him, and walked ou down the strvet. A few minutes later u pistol-shot was heaid, and when the policeman run buck ho found Kxperstedt lying on the slde wulk, with u bullet wound In his head. An ambulance was summoned, and Surgeon Do la Vergne. who responded, pronounced tho man dead. The body was removed to the Miller avenue sta tion, and thence to an undertaker's. In the pockets a letter was found, which hnd been written by Miss Jubitz before the match wus broken off. Coroner Lindsay will conduct the Inquest.

COMMANDER DAVIS'S HALLUCINATION. The public lias nothing to do with this reception." ANINDEPEHOENTGOMMANDER Davis Says He Doesn't Care a Bap for the Public. He Expected 10 MakeTlIaimio im Naw York. Commander Davis, who Is the United States's representative In the I'rlncess Kulalla's present suite, has culled forth some criticism for the manner In which he seems to assume proprietary rights In tlie nation's charming guest. He had announced that he would per mit only two newspaper men to go on the Dolphin when the Princess takes a sail on that vessel. "And these two will hnve to submit to my orders, too,' he Is quoted ns saying, with the comment that ha didn't care whether the press liked It or not. A committee of newspaper representa tives Interviewed Commander Davis on the subject to-day. and he said that he had been quoted correctly. "1 have my instructions from the President, and I am responsible to him only," said the Commander. "But the President did not tell you to exclude the representatives of twenty three of the twenty-five dally news papers of Now Y'ork, did he?" asked a reporter. "No; he left that to tny discretion, and I shall protect the Princess. She simply would not go on the Dolphin If I permitted the reporters to go, and I am not going to let them. I would like to know how they can claim any right to go on a man-o'-war, anyway? "I don't care how much the news papers criticize me. I've been abused before. I can stand It now." "What makes you think the Infanta would remain at home if the reporters were to be admitted to the Dolphin?" another reporter asked. "I don't think so; I know It," retorted the Commander, "If It would not be Impuuvm, .nay we ask how you know It? Did the lady Bay so?" put In two or three reporters In a breath. "Well. I'm not going to tell you how I know It," snapped the man who thinks he owns the Infantu Kulalia, adding: "Of courso. she Is itfeased to hove her movements, .poted tn the press, but It Is the contaet wlth'the represen tatives of the nbtrvpapeu rhat she ob jects to," "Has she expressed Mteii objection?" was usked. But there was no answer. After a little Commander Drevls said: I needn't let any reporters on board If I don't want to. It 'is only a courtesy, u concession I was making to let two ?."'. i vePot to'-stnuggle them aboard. But I will agree to admrt' four selected by all of you." Editor Whltelaw Held and J. W.

Two Tiny Bodiei Found on Dr. Chapman's Premises. He Says They Were Subjects Acquired In a Professional Way. Monnt Klsco'a Health Officer Oltets a Sanitary Doomtrana;. MOUNT KISCO, N. J May 26.-Every one ot the 1.400 Inhabitants ot this pretty village, most of whom have strenuously opposed the "efforta of the city of New Y'ork to purify Its Croton water-shed, and, Incidentally, the sani tary condition of the village Itself, Is talking of the astounding boomerang that has come back on the village otll cer. Dr. Charles Chapman, upon his oftl clal action yesterday. The work of purifying the Croton water-shod has been Intrusted to the New Y'ork Fertilizer Company, whoso employees, under Assistant General Manager Kdwln K. Hlmson, ten days ago, commenced work hero removing from vuluts the accumulated offal of years, which they convert Into odorless fertilizer and ship to their principal works at New Bedford, Mass. Y'esterday afternoon Dr. Chapman vis ited the works, and pronounced them .1 nuisance tu tho residents of the neigh borhood. Two hours after his visit the Fertilizer Company's employees pumped out f the vault In Dr. Chapman s yard the dead bodies of two bublcs tu glass jurs, which the workmen broke, and then took the bodies to the workH. Instantly the news spread, and the whole town was tn an uproar. President Qorham, of the village Board of Health, who has been the chlof kicker ugalnst Commissioner Daly's raids, took a deep Interest in the matter. Dr. Chapman obtained a permit to re move the belies from Knglneer Bird sail's asHlstunt. C. II. Kennedy, and soon afterward hurled the bodies. Tlie Coroner was not notllled. To an "Kven Ing World" reporter this morning Dr. Chapman said: "This thing has been grcssly misrepre sented, and I feur it may hurt my prac tice, T he bodies were some I had in my laboratory, which was overcrowded, and I wanted to get rid of them. They were In pint cms of alcohol, and had never been alive. "I acquired them as any phyflclan does, In his practice, and 1 had a per fect right to prtnerve them. "Ijist Winter, to get them out of the way, I threw them Into the vault. I see now that It was foolish, In view of yesterday's events, but ut the time It never occurred to me that 1 wus doing a careless or foolish uct." "How about your visit to the fertilizer works yesterduy?" Inquired the. reporter. "That wus merely to secure Hie bodies, 1 did not go there lu my pro fesDlonal cuiuclty." "Do you think tho works nro offensive tc the olfactory senses cr u menace to public health?' "That 1 urn not prepared to say. I didn't Inspect them closely, but I will suy Hint 1 do not think the works should huve been pluced In the mlddlu of tlie villus. Ko far as tlie prtcess of dis infection Is concerned, It is perfect," While tin- feiHIUrr company's em ployees nuke no ct Itulnal Intimations ugulnst Dr Chupmin, they vonslder It u bit; Joke tliut after his criticism of the works, they should have found such a state of affairs ill his own ault, whl.'h unllniittely drains Into Branch Cicek and thence Into the Croton UK or. .Many of the villagers do not agree with President Gorhum, of the Hoard of Health, in his opposition to the New Y'ork authorities.
