TALISTS HE REPUESF.NTS BY PCIDAY
-PKOTE.STS FROM ROU LEVA RD
There was another meeting of the Rapid
Transit Commission yesterday afternivn and
another talk about routes and capitalists and
certified checks. It was announced that a
route for tho West Side had been agreed upon
by the four members of the commission who are
now In tho city. Mr. Starin ls still In Europe.
He will ret un to Now-York In about ten days
or two weeks.
The meeting was held In the office of the
commission, at No. 2. Willlam-st. Mr. Stein?
way presided. The room was filled by a crowd
of men with their pockets full of schemes, pro?
tests and petitions. After he had called the
meeting to order, Mr. Steinxvay asked Oeneral
James R. O'Belrne if he had anything to say to
the commission. General O'I'etrne asked that
the letters written by him to the commissioners
Blnce the last meeting be read. Mr. Steinway
then read two letters written by General
O'Belme. The first letter contained a request
for the conditions upon which the deposit was
to be made. The other contained the state?
ment that General O'Reirne had been requested
to ascertain the route and terms to be de?
termined by the commission, as the capitalists
whom he represented were "ready to take up
the matter and carry lt to a successful issue."
"Will you confine your offer entirely to an
elevated road?" Mr. Steinway asked.
"Wt* will accept Mr. Bushe's plan," General
O'Belrne answered. "We are willing to put our?
selves entirely In the hands of the commission."
"When would you be prepared to answer?to?
morrow?" Mr. Inman asked.
General O'Belrne answered that he would be
ready to answer for the men he represented, but
he qualified his statement.
"Would you be ready by Friday?" Mr. Inman
Mr. Inman whispered to John M. Bowers, coun?
sel to the commission, for a few minutes. Then
Mr. Bowers wanted to know how General
O'Belrne proposed to depor.lt his $100,000.
"We are willing to comply with the wishes of
the commission," Gen.ral O'Beirne replied.
"Well, General, you are willing to put up the
money, and if you don't bid you lose?" Mr.
'Now. then, General." said Mr. Steinway, "the
Commissioners having been at work almost
dally since the last meeting, they have appr.reed
the following West Side rt ute: Running from
Battery Place, near West-st.; through West-st..
West Eleventh-st., Seventh-ave., Forty-nfth-st.,
Broadway and the Boulevard to One-hundred
and-seventleth-st.. thence along the Kings!,ridge
Road to the city limit. With a branch from such
route from Seventh-ave., through either Thlr
teenth-st. or Fourteenth-st., University Plate,
Wooster-st., Canal-st. and Centre-st., to the City
"The Commission," Mr. Steinxvay added, "ha.?_
concluded to abandon the pro*x>sed r-r-incrT
through Church-st.. south of Canal-st., on ac?
count of the excessive damages that the con?
structing company would be compelled to pay to
abutting owners and for terminal fat lillies. The
central line will probably be extended to the
north for the accommodation of the Hast Side,
and probably through James-st. to the South
Ferry, but they have not arrived at a final con?
clusion as to these points."
Mr. Steinway did not indicate how the Com?
missioners proposed to reach South Ferry
Benjamin F. Romaine and Melx-ille C. Smith
then engaged the attention of the Commission?
ers for a few moments. Mr. Romaine wanted to
present protests from Boulevard property
owners against an elevated structure in that
thoroughfare. Mr. Smith told the Commission?
ers that )an elevated road over the route
selected for the underground road would ruin
the chances of the latter road.
Mr. Steinway read a letter from J. W. Reno,
?who said that he would produce his capitalists
at the proper time. No capitalists were pro?
duced yesterday by any one. The Commission
?aili meet again on Friday at 2 o'clock p. m.

The financial results of the year ended Septem?
ber 30 will be found In the money article si SS a kel e.
The annual report says of the contract with the
"The contract under which the Lehigh Valley
Railroad Company had used this company's tracks
between Waverly and HuiTalo since 187C was tar*
mlnated on August 31, 18.2, so that eleven months

pany has received no benefits whatever from that
contract, but Itself supplied tht* loeal coal trade al'.ng
Its lines with Its own coal, and hus thereby to a
large extent overcome the loss, bb lt will be Been
that the decrease In net ear,j-in**s was but $202,
The report speaks of the New-York. Pennsylvania
and Ohio leas** as follows: "The onerous eliaraeter
of the New-York, Pennsylvania and OMo lease has
been shown iii form*T reports. In any readjust*
inent of the affairs of the Erle system som.- proper
modification of the terms of this lease should be
made, an,d a financial plan adopted whereby funds
may be obtained upon the' s-curlty of the property
without materially Increasing the annual burdens
of the New-York. Pennsylvania and Ohio Company,
and which, Judiciously expended thereon, would
place that line In a condition to successfully com?
pete with Its rivals."
The report also speaks of the block signal Im?
provement thus: "As promised In the last annual
report, before the opening of th* World's Fair, the
block signal system was completed on the Chicago
and Erle Railroad, thus giving the Erle lines a
through block signal system from New-York to
Chicago. The gratifying results from this system
were shown In the freedom from accidents on the
Erle lines during the contltiuance of the Columblsn
The only reference to a plan of reorganization
contained In the annual report ls as follows:
"Owing to the stringency In the money marie t
and the consequent inability of the company longer
to carry its floating debt without great sacrifices,
as also to the general depression In business, the
company was placed in the hands of receivers In
July last, lt will be necessary for the Hoard of
Directors to devote Itr t-ariv attention to the prep?
aration and promulgation of a plan for the read?
justment of the financial affairs of the company,
which shall Include the discharge of the present
floating debt and provision for a reasonable amount
of capital to be expended annually during a limited
number of years In the Improvement of the prop?
erty. Fer, while lt la true that the Erle system has
a Isrge earning power, lt is also true that during
Its past lt has been greatly overcapitalized, which
condition has never failed to embarrass the company
In Its laudable efforts lo adequately meet the re?
quirements of Its patrons ana the public, and to
successfully compete with the rival trunk lines."

District-Attorney Nicoll said yesterday that the
statements that Frederick t'hlmann, one of the

Slr: Some of to-day's papers publish that Mr.
Frederick I'hlmann escaped Indictment In con?
nection with the Ma lisnn Square Hank because h?
turned State's evidence. The statement ls wholly
false. He escaped Indictment because, and only
because, he was not Involved In any Improper
transaction and was not cognizant of any. He
would have emphatically refused to esc,.-*. In llct
ment on condition of giving evidence against any
one. It was never suggested by him or any on??
on his behalf or by the District-Attorney or any one
on his behalf that he should do that dishonorable
thing. It was never thought of. He has not don**

KOIt OF..\KKXI. CAltUN.
Washington, Nov. 28.?The appointment to-day by
the President of Colonel E. 8. Otis, of the 20th
Infantry, to lie Hrlgadler-General in place of Gen?
eral W. S. Carlin, retired, was of more than usual
Interest to Army officers, owing to the circumstances
which have surrounded his case. Just' before tne
close of the last Administration President Har?
rison peremptorily retired Brigadier-General Carr,
who hail refused voluntarily to go on the retired
Hst, nnd nominated Colonel Otis to succeed him.
There was much feeling manifested over General
Carr's retirement. In connection with Its effect on
other Army appointments. When the Harrison Ad?
ministration ended, the nomination of Colonel
Otis had not been confirmed, owing to the refusal
of the Senate to go Into executive session on
Military Committee business, and Colonel Otis lost
his opportunity. Soon after Mr. Cleveland's Ad?
ministration began Colonel W. S. Carlin was ap?
pointed to succceed General (.'arr. General Carlin
retired last week, and gossip among Army officers
over the prospects of Colonel Otis's appointment
have been rife since then. It was believed that
some other colonel would secure the plum. The
advancement of Colonel Otis will cause the pro?
motions of I.leutenant-Colonel William EL Penrose,
l_th Infantry; Major Kdwln M. Coates. 19th In?
fantry; Captain Clarence K. Bennett, 17th In?
fantry; First I.leut.-nant Charles St. J. Chubh,
"th Infantry, and Second Lieutenant Arthur John?
son. Ilth Infantry.
Although the second ranking colonel In the ser?
vice, General otis ls one of the votingest In years,
being fifty-five years old. He xviii retire in UM.
General otis was ls.rn In Mar-land and was ap?
pointed to the Army rrom New-York. In the volun?
teer service during the late war he served as
captain and lieutenant-colonel of the muli New
York Infantry, and In March, ISC, was brevetted
colonel for gallant and meritorious services In the
butti- of Spottsylvanla, and brigadier-general of
volunteers on the same date "for gallant and mer?
itorious services In the hattie of Chapel House,
Virginia." I luring the war he participated in the
battles of Kred.-rlcksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettys?
burg, liappahaiinofk Station. Mine Run. Wilderness,
Bpottsvlvsnla, North Anna, Totopotomay, Bethesda
Church, l'et.-rsburg, Weldon Kallroad and Chanel
Hons., wh.-re he was badly wounded. After being
honorably mustered out of th" volunteer eervlce
General Otis served as lieutenant-colonel of the
Md Infant rv from July, IMI, until February, UM
when lie became colonel of the 20th Infantry. Since
the war he has been In command of a number of
Army posts aad has serv*d as commander of sev?
eral military districts, during the labor riots of

COLLEGE COLORS WAVING
YALE AND PRINCETON* KEADY TOR JTO
THE nOY.S DI HOI IOU LINE UP AS AT
SIMM.VC 1*1 ELD-HOW THE TIGERS WILL
PLAY-WATERS SERIOUSLY INJURBD.
It ls unusual for New-York to put on gala attire
for any -porting contest, generally allowing thia
prlvll?-i-;e to Springfield and other towns. New
York City 1? an exception thin year, however, for
the blue of Yale and the orange and black of
Princeton will be scattered all over the city to?
day. The colors were displayed In many shop
windows yesterday, and they will lie worn pretty
generally to-day, nnd there will be a great flut?
ter of club colom when the Yale and Princeton
football elevens line up for their annual battle at
Manhattan Field to-morrow.
Speculation on the result of the game In much
keener than was at first expected, as lt wes
thought that after Yale's victory over Harvard the
champions would be much prohibitive favorites that
no betting would result. The followers of the
Princeton team have not lost faith In their Tigers,
and they show a disposition to back their favorites
when substantial odds are offered.
At the Stock Exchange yesterday the brokers
found time to discuss the game, and many bets were
made. A. J. Wormser offered 110,000 to $4,000 on
Yale, but the wager had not been accepted last
night. E. H. Talcott wagered Clarence McKlm $200
to $S0 that Yale would win. I). B. Van Emburgh
wagered $500 against $1,000 on Princeton, and VV. E.
Gordon took the short end of a $1,000 to $000 wager.
The Yale team will line up to-morrow as lt dla at
Sprlnglleld, and all the players are said to be In ex?
cellent condition. Princeton has done little outside
work sine* her game with Pennsylvania, and con?
siderable Interest ls felt In how the Tigers will line
up. The team will be about as follows:

A dispatch from Cambridge last night Intimates
that Captain Waters, of the Harvard team, ls more
severely injured than was nt Ilr.-it reported. He ls
said to be In bad shape generally, and threatened
with brain fever. In the game at Springfield, when
Waters was Injured and helped to the dressing
room, a friend went there to see how he was
getting along. Waters was alone and tears ran
down his cheeks, but they were caused by vexa?
tion rather than pain. Ile had been deserted by all
hi* fellows, and left alone In his misery.
The Harvard team evidently does not expect any
serious trouble in the game with Pennsylvania to?
morrow, as the crimson has arranged to play the
Williams team at Millbrook, N. Y., on Saturday,
HARVARD'S LAST HARD PRACTICE.
Cambridge. Mass.. Nov. 28 (-Special).? The last
hard practice of the season by the Harvard eleven
was held this afternoon. To-morroxv the work will
be light. In preparation for the game with Penn?
sylvania on Thursday. The playing to-day wan
lively and decidedly bette, than at Springfield,
and the belief ls becoming stronger that Harvard
can win from the (juakers. Captain Waters was
on the field, but he has not recovered from his
Injury sufficiently to make lt likely that he can
play against pennsylvania. Clark showed up finely
al halfback, and lt is probable that he xxiii be
th** substitute for Waters.
CLOSE OF THE PALO ALTO SALE.
The second and closing day of the sale of trot?
ting stock from the late Leland Stanford's Palo
Alto Farm, at ?he American Institute Building,
Thlrdave. and Sixty-thlrd-st., showed a marked
Improvement In the character of the attendance
and In the pries realized. Most of the offerings
were better bred and superior individually to those
sold on Monday. Hobert Honner gave the top price
..r the sale, $3,100, for the yearling colt Worthier, by
Advertiser. .:1.*'?, a son of Electioneer, out of Lulu
Wilkes, by George Wilkes. The dam of Worthier
ls also the darri of Sunol, 2r0.'i; and hence, no
doubt. Mr. Honner's persistence In bidding against
H. O. Kampmann, the Texas breeder, who was
lucky enough, however, to get the full brother to
Palo Alto at a low figure.
Park Commissioner Nathnn Straus has returned
to his old love, the trotter. He bought three or
four, among them the tlve-year-old mare Norhawk, I

S'O PRIZE FIGHTS AT ROCKAWAY BEACH.
The result of the late election may have a de?
creasing effect upon professional pugilism. Fly-by
