The Phamber of Commerce MtSffad a vigorous
and emphatic protest yesterday against the bill
Introduced by Senator Kl'sworth to legUlkttJ the
Rapid Transit Commission out of office nnd to
supplant It by B bipartisan Hoard to be appointed
bv Mayor Van Wyck. Th? protest wa? timely, for
the reason that, despite the opinion held In many
quarters that the bill had ben practically
squelched by ?Oovernor Rlnck Indmatlng that he
was oppo.o.i to it. it ?van reported yesterday that
both ?Senator rinft nnd Mr. CTOkOr had IsBiied
orders i hat there nhnuUl bfl no nbntemetit In the
efforts to remove tic- present lotnmi-Moners. With
on?, exception, the views ?gprssssd by the member?
<.f the Chamber of commerce a? re aeverely denun?
ciatory Of ?Senator Ellsworth'? measure and Of the
ulterior consid?ration which hsd prompted the
bringing forward of such ? bill. Tbs ?xcoptkm re
f.-rr-d to w.-.? .Lff.-rson M. Levy, one of the leading)
lights of Iba Democratic Club and nn ardent Tam?
many man. Mr Uvy offered nn amendment to
the effect that the <'ommlsston t-hould be requested
to resign, but as he was unable to And a seconder,
the members of the Chamber were not called upon
to vote tho amendment down Mr. Levy has been
conaplcuou? before In his opposition t<> the Com?
mission'? plans of rapbl transit.
I"..Lowing the atUtUttS ho hag taken In the matter
of the Kllsworth bill. AJoTinder K. Orr, the presi?
dent of the Kapld Transit Hoard, and also president
I of the Chamber of Commerce, man not present at
I yesterday'? meeting. In hi? absence Morris K.
Jesup preside?], and a large and representative gath?
ering of members attended the m??eilng.
Till-: RESOLUTIONS.
As soon as tin? assemblage hfid l?een called to
order John Crosby Brown, with ?a. few preliminary
words, presented ih?* following resolutions:
Resolv?*d. That the Chamber <?f Commerce of the
P?ate of New-Y or? .'?-.in.s wttb Indignation ??r the
bin Introduced in the State Senate to legislate out
ofofflcetheprese.it Rapid Transit Board,
Kos??i ved. That such bill has nn support in public
?entlment, and is absolutely without other Justifl i
:ion: that the prcseni Board, by Its persistent and
unwearied labors, by its resolute determination to
niak?- good the vote of the people for a genuine and
sufficient system of rapid transit, by Its refusal to
!<-s.*en 1rs .-ffiiris beca u.:' the numerous obstacle?
which have ?been thrown In its way, by its sincere,
oarn?-st and wise administration of th<* trusi re
pored In It, lias deserved and now enjoys ta>> con?
fidence of the city.
Resolved, That In tho opinion of the Chamber of
Commerce, an early and adequate solution of the
rapid tiansji problem depends upon th? contin?an e
In office of th? preseni Board, and that the proposal
t., remove its presenl membeia can proceed from n -
other motive than the ri?.<<|-_ to prevent a real solu?
tion of the rapid transll problem, and t.: se cure,
through n union of politicians on nominally opposite
?Ides, ,i grossly Improper poll I lea I advantage at the
? expeme of the masses of the people of the city.
Immediately after th?* resotiitlcn had been read
i Mr Levy jumped to to offer hla amendment, The
prenrn ...- of th? amendment asserted that the
; Commission had made no progress In six years,
t thai the underground project era? surrounded by
legal, physl al and nnanc'al obstacles, that the
Commission was antagonistic to the Tammany ad
! ministration, and thai f.?r th?-?? r< isoni the com
1 mlssionars should be requested to tender their
! resignations. Having read his substitute Mr. Levy
procei i.-.i ?,-? s,.e?iK upon it. Straying from the
? ibje. i under dlscusslop Mr Levj riegan to speak
upon Ihe feasibility of the tunnel railroad, where?
upon ho an? called to order by the chairman. He
persisted, however, in condemning the plans of the
bul wa? listened to with unmistakable
though Bubdued evidences of strong disapproval.
MR RHOADES'S AROUMENT
In so.-o:?d?ng the original resolution J Harsen
Uhoades made S forcible argument In Its favor, ?
and was ;r.?? lently applauded. After referring to
t..? fact th it nn effort was being mads "at the
dictation of a political boss" to turn the Commis?
sioners out if office, he proceeded:
Tii>- .-li irg? that these Commissioners have not
done their full duty to th>* put?lt<* In false. For

The Millinery vs. the Weather

to the weather conditions of yes?

repaid for coming.
We are putting especial stress
on the feature of selection \r\ the
imported hats. There is not one
of them which does not bear a
famous name, but the very breadth
ofthat fame proves the accessibili

cantile approach. Therefore it is
the selection even among master?
pieces, which counts. and it
counts heavily in this collection.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^B Of the productions of our own

place them beside the picked models of the world s best de?
