Of the thirty-all ?Republican ?Senaten only Mr. LexoW nnd Mr. Mnllin were absent. Tho conference was held In the rooms of the Son? nte Finance Committee. When the Senators mot it waa w?ll known that Senator Kord and other city Senators wouM make a atrong effort to have the tax on clubs Kreativ lowered, if not entirely abolished. The "fake" cluba and the "fake" b?tela whleh have been eatabllahed under the Liquor Tax law were the ehief aubjecta debated, and It was apt.1 that an effort must be made to suppress them. There was a -treat difference ?>f opinion, how? ever, aa to the proper method to adopt. ?Senator White, of Syracuse, was named as chairman, and .?s soon as ho waa seated Benator Coggeahall moved thai the assembly be made a conferen e, and not a caucus. This was adopted, alth ?ugh several ? f the leaders voted for a cau? ens, anvil?- them Senators EllaWOrth, Straiiahail and Rain?t*.

He was frank to say that he believed the cluba abould be taxed, even if it hurt th?? party. Senator Krum said that ho believed from Intl mate knowledge of the affairs of the upper ?part of th?*? r-tate that th- ! ?s of votea In N'ow-York City, if cluba were t. tatd, would not be nearl;.' as great aa th< loas of \ (tea in the rest of the s*at?? if tome renr'dy waa not found. ?Senator Pord alleged that becauae of his de siro to change th?

Th?? amendmenta submitted i?>- senator Ford. drawing a line between bona fide ?dubs and "f.ike" cluba, were generally believed to be un conatltutlonal, ?Senator Malby thought that no distinct?"!! could be made between clubs, no matter who were their Incorporatola, as long m they were recognized by the state a*? legitimate ? lubs with the stat? s approva! and certified to by a Supreme Court Judge, It would be ridicu? lous to hav?? one Buprei ie Court Judge '?verturn another's decision. As to a saloonkeeper no*, beint? allowed t?? be thi Ineorrwator <?i a license i club, thai would be looked upon <?.-? a curtailment of peraonal ritrhts It was said on good authority that Edward Lauterbach and Senator Platt had both - telegrama to the conference, Mr, Platt In favor ? f the Ralnea amendmenta and Mr. Lauterhach asking a postpoiH-m.-nt of action until Thurs? day. It la ?believed that the conference will finally decide t.? aupport th?* Ralnea amend? menta, Including the tax on all cluba, Benator Pord, Benator Lamy, Senator Davis, Senator Pago and Senator Belbert are among those who will not agree ? ? make the inference a caucua or abide by Ita decisions.
