NO CONFERENCE TOOK PLACE. Lunacy 'oninilR.loiirr Dlil Not Meet Stale lluHpltHl MHiiuKer. The conference announced for thla morning, at the Park Avenue Hotel, be tween the members of the Lunacy Com mission and the representatives of the Board of Managers of th. State Hospi tal, did not take place. At 10 o'clock, the hour named, none of the Lunacy Commlsloaers had appeared. The only persons present were Supt. Howard, of the Rochester Asy lum, and Supt. Andrews, of the Buffalo Hospital. They waited until after 11 o'clock, and then went away In dlsgu.it. Dr. MacDonald, of the Hiate Lunacy Commission, who Is (topping at Ihe Cambridge Hotel, Thirty-third street and Fifth aenue, left that place thla in"i -ii. ,ik-. saying that ho would not be back until late In the afternoon. Senator Charles P. McClelland. Mana ger of the Hudson River Hospital, In Dutchess County, told an "Kvenlng World" reporter that It had been under stood that no conference was to take place. The managers after their meeting In the Gllsey House List Monday night, he said, notified the Commissioners that they could not remain In New York long enough to attend the conference to-day Instead of lat Tuesday as originally ap pointed: Senator McClelland said: "The managers of the Klnghampton and Ogdenshurg Asylums have charged Ihe Commissioner with directing from what firms provisions and other necessaries should lie bought by the hospital au thorities. That looks like corruption. "An unfair practise of the Commis sioners Is t.i cut out an Item of say $l.nno for blankets from the requisition list, and when the same item Is craved for next month, to cut It out again and Ihen take credit for having saved the St -4 to $2.0(10.
