PLATT SAID "DOWT WAIT.11
AND THE CHARTER WILL BE TAKEN UP
IN ALBANY AT ONCE.
THT. FIRST HEARING TO PE GIVEN TO THE
GREATER NEW TORK COMMISSION ON
TlllimHiT rtilMl Altli rrsET.
[BT TEI.-ORATH TO THB TRini'NE.l
Albany. Feb. 23.?The plans of the Repub?
lican leaders in the Senate and the Assembly
relative to procedure on the Greater New-York
charter were upset to-day, and an entirely dif?
ferent line of action from that decided upon yes?
terday was adopted. It ls said that messages
from Florida caused a hastily called conference
of tbe leaders this morning, and it was decided
to give the first of the public hearings on the
charter on Thursday afternoon of thia week.
Further than this lt was decided at a conference
ef the Republican Senators this afternoon not to
adjourn over next week for the inauguration of
McKinley, but to continue the sessions of the
legislature and give hearings on the charter as
Quickly as possible.
The report hire is that orders have been given
lo "jam" the charter through the Legislature in
the form In which it has bern submitted by the
Greater New-York Commission. Senator Strana
ban. chairman of the Senate Cities Committee,
said to-day in reply to this report:
"There is absolutely no truth in it. Wo realize
What a great responsibility rests upon us in per?
fecting a charter for the Greater City, and shall
proceed with deliberation. There ls no necessity
for jamming through" the measure. We have
ruffli-ient vote? to pass the charter at any time,
but ne shall give ample hearings to those who
have suggestions to offer. I nm of the opinion
that there will not be many changes In the char?
ter. However, that will depend entirely upon
the suggestions male at the hearings."
Th, hearing which will be given on Thursday
sfternoon by the Cities Committees of tho two
houses will be entirely devoted to explanations
Of the various chapters of the charter by the
members of the Greater New-York Commission,
Subseciuent hearings vt ill give all who wish to
I a heard a chance tn make susRestion-s, hut it
is understood that the simple question of con?
solidation will not be discussed, as it was pet
tied by the last Legislature.

THE CHARTER DISCFSSED.
CITY OFFICIALS TALK BEFORE THE POLITICAL
SCIENCE CLUB.
The Greater New-York Charter received a genteel
drubbing at the bands of seveial prominent munlci
i?. offiVa.s last evening st a meeting of ;he Polit?
ical Science Club In the ballroom of the Hotel
A dinner preceded tbe discussion of the
charter, at which about IM men and women sat
down. Mayor Strong was expected to be present,

Ooneral Charles H. T. Collis, Commissioner of
Public Work.*; Colonel Georg* HS. Waring, Jr.. Com?
mission* r of Street Cleaning: Simon Sterno and
Ellis H. F.obert addressed the meeting.
- Bsmlastoner Roosevelt attacked the portion of the
isrtei :-..c.:.ig to the polio* department. "I be*
Neve," 'ie s,.:-i, "la compromise?*, and I hove been
sing my belief by living down to the ideals
which compromises necesBltsted In the administra?
tion of thc- Poiue Department. This will explain my
attitude toward th* charter tinder consideration. I

' ..lonel Waring characterized the charter as a
lng for Brooklyn but a calamity for New
York.
Simon Bterne said: "Remember, we go into
partnership with much territory that ia very lightly
taxed Brooklyn will spero, Instead of tCoftOOu for
raring f ir lt* streets, iv-."". The pressure of
?ut on New-York tot ail the Improvements needed
tn Brooklyn arti] l?- er.ormous. Tbe politicians of
'amalea and New-Dorp are looking torv. ard to a
godsend, but 1 cannot sc* how the taxpayer* of
.:> ar>* io profit by tv* Greater New-York."
General Collis wanted to know why the (Heater
New-York couldn't erne In under the sam,- torin of
government which now so ably directs tie- affairs
of this city, instead of having a ponderous charter
prepared for lt. Ila Bttd that Brooklyn, which
could not borrow a million of money, waa to protit
by New-York's capacity to borrow seventy millions.

Chicago, Feb. 23.-General Pass, tiger Agent Eus
lls, of the Rtirllngion system, said yesterday that
at a conference of officials lt had been decided that
the Burlington should not make any reducllon la
the regular rale to Carson City, Nev., on account
of the prizefight. The reason was I hat it was not
an affair which Justified the rt mpany in making
any concessions.
The traaamlBSnarl roads have been authorized ly
tho chairman to put in a one-fare rate for Ihe
round trip to Washington for the Inauguration.
Tho Union Pacific requested ibis action in order to
meet the rates of the 'Frisco road, which it. not a
member nf the association,
lt ls rumored from St. Louis that Hie Missouri

sented except Hie Chesapeake and Ohio. M. K. In?
galls. Ihe president of that road, telegraphed his
inability to be present. The representatives of the
other roads voted unanimously in favor of the
maintenance of rates W. C. P.ullitt, ihe traffic
manager of the Norfolk and Western, had sall
that tho Joint Traffic roads were cutting raten,
but that if they restored and maintained rates his
road would flo likewise, lt was expected that the
Chesapeake and Ohio would join with the other
trunk lines in giving assurance that schedule rates
would be strictly adhered to, whereupon tho Nor?
folk and Western would put Its fid rates in force
after the ten day's notice to the Interstate Com?
merce Commission required hy law. To the Nor?
folk and Western differential rates had been al?
lowed. It was asserted that the other lines made
concessions to shippers which wiped out the differ?
entials. Low rates have been rr.-ide hv the Morgan

Havana, Feb. St.?Charles Francis Scott, the
American citizen who wus arrested in Regla, on
the morning of February !l. and has since been
detained In a Spanish Jail, was to-day released
from the state of "incommunicado" in which
he was placed, as the result of representations
mad* to the Acting Captain-General, the Mar?
quis of Ahumada, by United States Consul-Gen?
era 1 Lee.
It is understood here that General Lee is dis?
posed to resign if support of his actions is
Withheld by the American Government, but
nothing positive is known herc as to what is
thought of the matter in Washington. Ameri?
cans here are free in their criticism of the weak?
ness of the Washington Government in the
inatt-r of backing up Consul-Geneial Lee.

of the Cabinet meeting this afternoon by 1'riv ite
Secretary Thurber, who said that the denial
could be repeated upon "my responsibility.'' De?
spite the denials which have b>*'-n mad** publtCAj
ihe opinion is prevalent that Oeneral Lee has
sent his resignation with or without conditions.
Whether the resignation Will be accepted ls
another matter. The Administration has only
eight days more of official life, and neither the
President nor Becretary Olney is seeking embar?
rassment or unpleasant notoriety. They aould
naturally co pretty far to Induce General Lee
not to insist upon his resignation being accepted.
it would I- a serious black eye td tbe Adminis?
tration to have the Consul-Oeneral al Havens
leay,- office at this time upon the gr,uiii.i that his
demands in behalf of Americans in trouble In
Cuba were not supported by the Washington au?
thorities. To the country al large it would ap?
pear that th.* Administration was weak, and thal
its directions to Oeneral Lee t" do ali in his power
fur distressed Americans In cuba were nol mi snl
to be taken seriously i.y the Consul-Qi neral.
HIS DEMANDS IONORED BY WEYLER.
General Lee, it would seem, In thai even!
took Becretary Olney al hla word, and made
certain vigorous demands upon Captain-General
Weyler. These Weyler Ignored- Then Oeneral
Lee appealed to Washington for support Rut
Mr. olney did nol support him. One reason for
thinking Hie current reports are more or lesa
trustworthy ls the emphasis pul upon the de?
nials. A Benator remarked this afternoon:
"When this Administration Indulges In positive
denials lt is lime to look up some details, for
we may suppose that the genera] fact exists '
In a i iise of this kind it is always difficult to
gd at the facts Whatever bas been heard
from General Le,- is securely under lock nnd key
nt the State Department Sifting out the im?
probability and taking into account only that
which is generally believed to be the facts, Hi?
story In the case Of General Lee ls about as
follows:
In the collis** of the last two or three months
the Consul-Oeneral has reported t., th,- state
Department several Instan es where Americans
have bein unfairly and sometimes cruelly
treated by the Spaniards, in some cases he has
been directed by tb.- State Departnn nt to niiik"
careful Investigations and report the facts. In
a few- Instances be has, pursuant to specific in?
structions, lodged demands with Oeneral Weyler
for redress. His demands hav,*. as a rule, been
ignored ur neglected, and the state Department
has been so advised.
Recently General Lee's patience has been sore?
ly tried. A few days ago he "suggested" that
two warships be sent to Havens t" give a moral
force to his complaint*. lt la said thal the "sug
gestlon" w;is telegraphed here last Friday, in
the denials given nut to-day the word "supges
tioti" is carefully avoided. Officials say that
General Lee lias nut "rer-uested" or "recommend?
ed" that men-Of-WSJ be sent to Havant. Ac?
cording to what is heard to-day, Secretary olney
Informed General Lee that no vessels would be
dispatched to Cuban waters. This message was
sent by wire nn Saturday. On receiving ir Gen?
eral Lee arrota "?l bis resignation and mailed it.
The oiTicials who have bon so zealous In saying
there ls no truth in the reports concerning Gen?
eral Lee say that that officer's resignation "has
not been received," and that "he has nv re?
signed."
TaOCflNICAL AND CAUTIOUS DENIALS.
If the Consul-General has resigned, the resig?
nation has not leached Washington. Even If it
had it would hav* to be accepted before Oeneral
Lee would be oul of office. A point sgalnat ali
the denial- mad* lO-day ls thal they are striking?
ly technical and ,.v .i-,-nui buisly worded.
It ia said here in-night that Secretary Olney
has telegraphed Oeneral Le* to recall lils resigna?
tion saying thal it would be unfortunate for
every reason if he Insisted upon leaving Havana.
Oeneral Lee's friends are of the opinion thal bs
bas ssked i" be relieved from bis duties. They
sav thal he Biuhl hav,* been seriously provoked
to take aoeb action. They refer to his deep la
teresl I" his duties, and speak ,.f bis remarks
when bec- in November lo ihe effect that he
honed i" '"? of mock rarvfcr* lo American Inter
,.sts in cuba They aw Inclined t?> tb*- belief that
the Btat? Department bas not supported the
Consul-Oeneral, snd thm Oeneral Lee, feeling
thal h.- uss of ISO use to the country under such

About three weeks ago Acting Inspector Harley

floor. In the front room they- found sixteen men
playing poker, craps and other games. When the
policemen burst in upon the players, then was the
