A Presidential Veto Onco Knocked Out All Plans. (Br AisoclalM Prfis) WASHINGTON, June 8. -The President has signed the New York and New Jir sey Bridge bill. The New York and New Jersey Bridge bill, as It has become a law, leaves the location of the bridge subject to ap proval by the Secretary of War upon fciich examinations, hearings and re ports as he shall hereafter prescribe: Provided that It shall not he located be low Klfty-nlnth street, New York City, nor above Sixty-ninth street, New York City. An to the laying of railway tracks on the structure, the bill says: That laid romiitnlea may locate, coniitruct and maintain over surh bridge and ttin ap proaches thereto railroad tracks for the u.e ot ratlroade, prmlJed that any railroad on either side ot aald river shall be permitted to connect Ua tracks with the said bridge approaches, snd shall hive equal riithts of tranilt for its rolHnu stock, cars, passengers and frclaht upon equal and equitable terras, and If a dispute as to the eiulllty or equity ot the terms shall arise It ahall he submitted to and derided by the Secre tary of War: provided that the location of all approaches of said bridge In the city of New York shall be apprned by the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund ot the city ot New York, and provided, further, that no railroad or railroads shall be operated on the approaches of said b-ldge companies in the city of New York, ex cept on such approaches aa shall have been ap. proved by the Sinking Fund CommlsBlonera of the rlty of New York, provided, also, that the term "approaches." aa used In this act. shsll be con strued to include only such portion of the road bed and superstructure on either side of Raid bridge as Is necessary to reach the grade of the bridge from the gradu of the streets at v.hlch said approaches begin to rise, In order to bring the two elevations together upon and by a grade of not less than twenty feet to the mile. It la aUo provided that "any bridge built under the authority of this act 8iall be constructed with such length of span and at such elevation a.s the Secre tary of War shall approve and require. Provided, however, that It shall afford, under any conditions of load or tempera, ture, a minimum clear headway above high water of Spring tides of not less than one hundred and fifty feet at the centre of the span." A commission appointed by the Presi dent Is to determine what length ot span, not less than 2,000 feet, will be practicable and safe. The Secretary of war must approve changes in plans. Lights prescribed by the Lighthouse Board must be provided. Not less than $280,000 must be spent In construction the first year and $1,000,000 each year there after. The bill has been put through only after a long struggle and In the face of an opposition which at different times Included the Mayor of New York, the Chamber of Commerce, several United States Senators and Representatives In Congress, Once a Presidential veto killed a measure which had been ap ptoved by both houses ot Congress. Much of the opposition was undoubt edly Inspired by certain railroad Inter ests, which will experience a closer competition when other railroads get through the new bridge a direct en trance Into New ork. There was, how ever, a certain amount of honest objec tion to the placing of a pier In the North River to the posslhle Injury of the river commerce. At one time, too, Ihn Kill hnfnro I'nnyrp.B cava tViA ltrlric-A Company too much latitude as to the location of approaches and building of tracks in New York City. At the head ofTlce of the New York and New Jersey Bridge Company, 2H Broadway, It was nald to-day that the work of constructing the bridge would be begun bh soon as the Secretary of Wai approved ot the plans and specifica tions, which are already prepared. The Company expects that It will take four years to complete the bridge and that It will cost. Including approaches, 510,000,000. It will be a suspended canti lever bildge, and will extend from a point between Klfty-nlnth and Sixty ninth streets across the North River to a point opposite Uuttenburg. It will, at the highest point, be 150 feet above water at high tide, llfteen feet higher than the present Brooklyn Bridge, It will con tain six tracks and be purely a railway bridge, enabling all lines now reaching the New Jersey side to have a terminal In New York City. A union depot, which It Is expected will be one of the largest In ine world, will be built, extending from Seventh to lClghth avenue and from Forty-second to Forty-fourth street. It will be 400 by 600 feet. The revenue from the bridge and depot will be derived from the rail roads exclusively, as there will be no provisions for passenger traffic other than that furnished by each Individual roid In Its own trains. The President of the Bridge Company Is John B. Kerr. Vice-President of the New York, Ontario and Western Rail way. Charles H. Swan, the Secretary and Treasurer, has devoted years to the completion of the scheme. He Is now In Washington, where he has been for some time In the Interest of the Company. DID NOT KIDNAP GLADYS. Alma CoddinRton-IlloiT Not Sustained. Police Justice Feltner this morning, in Yorkvlllo Police Court, dismissed the motion for a warrant for kidnapping against Mathilda K. Goodwin and her son, Clifford Coddlngton Goodwin, made by Mrs. Alma Louise Coddlngton-Fel-lows, for depriving her of the possession of her child. Tho Judge said: "The evidence In the case leads to only one conclusion, viz., tharLoulsa Alma or Lulu Coddlng ton, the daughter of the complainant, who Is not quite fifteen years old and who seems to be rather mature for her years, took her sister Gladys Coddlng ton, a child of three and a half years, ouUfor a drive. Intending to keep her away from her mother, the complainant, for a tew days, "Tne defendants, the Goodwins, cannot be held, as their participation In the re moval of the child consisted only In al lowing the use to Lulu Coddlngton ot their horses and carriage to convey her self and her little sister to Mrs. Wes son's.

FAIL Big Warehouse Firm Forced to Make an Assignment, Liabilities May Reach Several Hun dred Thousand Dollars. No Preferences Named and the Assets Not Known. Albert C. Woodruff, of M South Ox ford street, Brooklyn, and Henry A. Nlchle, of 42 Lefferts place, Brooklyn, the surviving partners of the lnte U. B. Bartlett nnd comprising the firm of Kdward 11. Bartlett & Co , who conduct a storage business at 5 Hanover street, made an assignment to-day to William W. Goodrich, of 921 President street, Brooklyn. There are no preferences. A transcript of the assignment was filed with the County Clerk of Kings County, in Brooklyn, nt 12.15 P. M. Bartlett & Co. and the Union Ware house Company are practically one and the same concern. They are lessees of the mammoth stores along the Brook lyn water-front known as Watson Stores, Roberts Stores, BartlettH Stores, Prentiss Stores, German-American Stores, Anglo-American Stores and Mer chants stores. W. W. Goodrich, the assignee. Is a member of the law firm of Goodrich, Dcady & Goodrich, of 59 Wall street. Ho Bald to an "Evening World" re porter that the liabilities would exceed several hundred thousand dollars, but that It would be Impossible to attempt to form an estlmnte. He was equally at sea regarding the assets. He was having a statement pre pared ond would probably arrive at the exact condition of affairs to-morrow. "The assignment was precipitated by "to death of Mr. Bartlett, which oc- urred a c tple of weeks ago. He was the financial head of the house," said Mr. Goodrich. "I shall call a meeting of creditors ecrly In the week and see Just what can be done. It would be a great pity to al low the firm to go under as they are doing an excellent business." When the Empire Warehouse Com pany dissolved a little over a year ago, Bartlett & Co. formed the Union Ware house Company, and took up a number of the leases held b ythe Empire Com pany, as well as making new ones. The firm Is probably known In every city In the world that can boast of shipping facilities. Its holdings com prise nearly all the Brooklyn water front from Fulton to Atlantic ferries. When the will of Mr. Bartlett was filed recently there was much surprise evinced over the small personal estate he left. All his property Was willed to his widow. The warehouse man's wealth had been estimated all the way from $3,000,000 to $7,000,000, but his will showed that his personal property amounted to less than $1,000,000, and made no mention of any real estate. The failure of the big firm, which was familiarly known aa "The Warehose Trust," gave rise to-day to a belief that its troubles had been of long standing, and that they were. In a measure, responsible for Mr. Bartlett's death. Mr. Bartlett died only a few weeks ago, very suddenly, from the effects of a stroke of apoplexy a day or two before. SOME FIGURES FROM FITCH.

Comptroller Fitch Issued a statement this morning to show that he haa been able to borrow money for the city at a cheaper rate of Interest than Comp troller Myers, his predecessor.

Interest, nnd money was scarce at that. These are the figures given out by Mr. Fitch of money borrowed on revenue bonds by the city: Amount Average T.sr. borrowed.
