grown" tired of her; and in both cf these she grovels
before him, in frenzied supplication that he will not
leave her. At those junctures Hiss Nethersole put
forth her considerable power of simulated emotion
. with a great chow of sincerity, and thereupon the
ratiltittide.— easily beguiled by the tearful.' epas-'
medic semblance of fictitious woe. — recognixed her
. exploit with vociferous and protracted applause.
Bat IBs* Nethersole Is not cf a sympathetic tem
perament, end her acting; always plainly artificial,
prevails by force and not by tenderness. In her
level speaking she was hard, dry, monotonous, and
frequently tame, but she cam let herself go, as the
phrase Is, in moments of excitement, and that sort
of tart>tilenr» and seeming abandonment often cre
ates, for casual observers, the effect of Illusion and
tremendous feeling. The main credit of the produc
tion ahotiid be ascribed to the stage manager; the
sVM>. is the difficult scene of the Ball Room was
remarkably wen handled. W. W.
The comedy of "The Ambassador,*" by the female
writer who uses the pen-name of "John Oliver
Hobbes," was produced last night at Daly's Theatre.
It has been described in this paper, and Its consid
erable success Id London has been recorded. It
was favorably received, at Daly's Theatre, by a
numerous audience. It possesses literary quality
and it is notable for an ambitious purpose, a
fluent dialogue, and careful portrayal of English
A new play by Mr. H. V. Esmond, entitled ""When
XT* Were Twenty-one." was produced last night at
the Knickerbocker Theatre, fcr the first time en
any stage, and Mr. N. C. Goodwin and Miss Maxine
Elliott acted the principal parts in It. The house
was full »t.d the audience was sympathetic and
at t:T=es even demonstrative. The play is comedy,
tinged with sentiment and marred by an admixture
ef dirty intrigue. One act passes In one of those
de*r~ar?p3 and degrading London club snpper rooms
— s«ch as the Corinthian— are a disgrace to
the English capital, and about, which It is best to
pay nothing. Miss Elliott was radiant in beauty.
Mr. Goodwin has the character of a middle aged,
slightly cynical" gentleman who plays the good
genius, end. for a wonder, is rewarded.
A frivolous farce, of French oriEln. entitled "CoraHe

never difficult to evoke from th« empty play-going
crowd of this period, — by a fun house. It is made
up of milllEery and mischief, and it is volatile and
occasionally ludicrous.

Th«> Rapid Transit Commissioners yesterday
gar* John B. McDonald another extension of
time In which to prepare hie bonds, and formally
rejected the proposition of Andrew Onderdonk,
returning to him the check for $150,000 which
he deposited with his bid of $39,300,000 for the
construction of the underground railway. Sev
eral Commissioners admitted after the meeting
that thre action virtually put the Board on rec
ord as being confident that Mr. McDonald will
qualify. From another source it was learned
that August Belmont had laid before the Com
missioners such proofs of progress with the con
struction company which he is forming that
they felt perfectly safe in rejecting the Onder
donk bid.
In addition to this, the Board appointed Con
troller Coler and Commissioner Rives a com
mittee to go to Albany on Thursday to attend
the bearing which Governor Roosevelt will give
upon the bill amending the city charter so that
the Municipal Assembly cannot interfere with
the Issue of rapid transit bonds, and also ap
pointed President Orr and Controller Coler an
other committee to confer with August Belmont
to examine Into the sureties which he proposes
to offer on behalf of Mr. McDonald, and to re
port upon their nature and value to the Board.
This committee win probably confer with Mr
Belmont to-day.
It is reported now that Mr. Belmont will offer
as the $7,000,000 security required part cash,
part bonds of the construction company and part
personal guarantees. If this be true. It may be
necessary to ask the assent of the Appellate Di
vision to their acceptance, for when the court
reduced the bond from $15,000,000 It specified
exactly the kind of securities that would be re
quired. As the construction company was not
then contemplated, its bonds were not specified,
but it is thought they would prove perfectly
acceptable to the court.
A feature of yesterday's meeting was the
complaint made by Mr. McDonald that he had
been virtually misled by the guarantee com
panies into thinking that he could get his bonds
from them easily, but when his $150,000 check
was once deposited the companies had made ex
orbitant demands, which it was Impossible to
meet. When The Tribune published a rumor to
the same effect some days ago the companies
made haste to deny it and asserted that they
■were merely protecting their stockholders.
From a trustworthy source it was learned that
the surety companies with which Mr. McDonald
•was negotiating demanded that he furnish to
them cash and an indemnifying bond to the full
amount of the sureties that they should furnish,
which would amount to $6,000,000, and that,
further, they should have the disbursing of the
entire $35,000,000 which would be paid for tha
work — In other words, that they should have en
tire control of the contract, and that McDonald
should become a mere f gurehead in the transac
tion. To this Mr. McDonald refused to accede,
and, the surety companies declining to accept
any other terms, negotiations were broken off.
The meeting of the Board yesterday was held
at No. 320 Broadway. All the Commissioners.
Including the Mayor, were present. The secre
tary first read the following letter from Mr.
McDonald asking for more time:
February 3, WOO.
Tt> the Honorable, the Board of Rapid Transit
Gentlemen: Circumstances have made it necea
eary for me to apply to your honorable body for a
further extension or time in which to furnish the
sureties required by the contract to construct and
operate the rapid transit railroad.
When I made my bid I had what I believed to be
satisfactory assurances that they would go on my
bonds In case the contract was awarded to me.
But when, after the award. I renewed my applica
tion to them, I found them disposed to impose con
ditions which were unexpected and much more
onerous than I had anticipated when I named them
as sureties in my proposal.
Negotiations lasting over ten days resulted in the
statement of the companies of requirement* which
I deemed unreasonable, and with which on short
notice I was not prepared to comply. They were,
finally, unwilling to execute the sureties unless
cash op Its equivalent representing the full amount
of tiielr bond was practically set apart for them.
On the Slat lnst I notified the companies that it
wga useless to continue negotiations on these lines.
ar*d since that time I have been planning to sub
stitute other sureties in their place and stead. I
feel reasonably certain of procuring such substi
tutes within a reasonable time, providing the Com
mission will grant me a further extension of
Mr. McDonald, it will be noticed, in this ver
sion of his letter, which is the one given out
for publication by the Board, refers to the guar
antee companies only as "they." It Is possible
that between the first and second sentences of
this version he inserted a sentence naming cer
tain companies in a way which the Board did
not care to publish. Mr. McDonald also left a
blank space for the number of additional days
he wanted. The Board gave him until Feb
ruary 20.
Another letter was read from F. W. Whit
ridge, representing the Onderdonk syndicate,
and demanding the return of the check If an
otheT extension was to be given to McDonald-
It said:
Feb. 5. 1900.
Alexander E. Orr. Chairman of the Board of Rapid
Transit Commissioners.
Dear Blr: We are inf<>rmed that Mr. McDonald
nae applied to you for a further extension of time
within which to complete the terms of his bid. I
do not presume to express any opinion as to the
prudence or n»*es*i'T of yoi:r Board's taking any
action upon that application, if. indeed, it has been
made. We consider, however, that under the terms
o* th* "Invitation to Contractors" Mr. Onderdonk
is fairly entitled at the expiration of five days after
the end of the period fixed by the Commission for
the consummation of Mr. McDonald's bid, to have
the check for Slso.o<*> which was deposited with his
bid returned. I think it right, therefore, to notify
you of Mr. Onderdonk's position, and to say that
any extension given to Mr. McDonald beyond twen
ty-five days after the award of the bid will, we
think, operate to relieve Mr. Onderdonk of the
obligation now Imposed upon him— which he has at
all times been ready to fulfil— of complying with the
termf of the Invitation and executing the contract
for the construction and equipment of the Rapid
Transit F*al!road, and I request that at the expira
tion of such twenty-five dayi> the check referred to
may be returned to me. F. W. WHITRIIXrfc..
A long discussion followed the reading of these
letters. Finally Mayor Van Wyck moved the
following resolutions, which were seconded by
Charles Stewart Smith and unanimously
adopted !
Resolved That the time of John B. McDonald to
execute the contract for constructing and operating
the Rapid Transit Railroad, make the requisite
deposit, give the requisite bonds and otherwise per
form the terms of his bid be and the same is hereby
extended to and including the 20th day of February,
Resolved further. That Andrew Onderdonk's bid
be rejected and that, In compliance with his request,
the Controller forthwith return to Mr. Onderdonk
the JlMVoOO "check deposited with this Board by him.
After the meeting Charles Stewart Smith
said: "Mr. McDonald will qualify, I am sure.
The delay has been caused by the exorbitant
demands of the guarantee companies." A. B.
Boardman said: "I have never doubted that
Mr McDonald would qualify Mr. Coler said:
"The bond question will be quickly nettled now."
The definite rejection of Mr. Onderdonk's bid
will make It necessary for the Commission to re
advertlse for bids If by any possibility Mr. Me-
Donald should fall to qualify.

eastward over Nova Scotia, attended by southeasterly
winds, shifting to northwesterly gales along the North
Atlantic Coast, and followed by clearing and colder
weather in the Atlantic Coast States. A disturbance has

Bright speeches. Jokes, epigrams and studied trib
utes last night at the Waldorf-Astoria contributed
to the enjoyment of nearly seven hundred and fifty
people who took part In the first annual dinner of
the Xew-Tork City Police Endowment Association.
It was virtually a revival of the police dinners of
six years ago, only on a larger and more mag
nificent scale than in days gone by. The dinner
last night was held In the ballroom, on the second
floor, where nine long tables were spread. The
greater number of the police captains and inspec
tors wore rhelr uniforms.
Until six years ago the police captains and their
superiors were wont to gather for an annual dinner.
Then came the Lesow Investigation, and the gloom
cast over the department was not dispelled until a
short time ago, when the Police Endowment Asso
ciation determined to revive the old custom.
There was a great outpouring of politicians of
both parties last night. All the Assembly districts
sent their leaders, and the city departments wer»
represented by their chiefs and clerks. The Su
preme Court. First and Second departments, and
the Appellate Division of each department were
represented. The old Police Board, the reform Po
lice Board and the present Police Board were also
represented, and of the oldtime policemen In
spectors Steers, Alexander -Williams. Peter Conlln
and John McCullagh.
From out of the city came many well known
men, among them Chief Inspector W. B. "Watts
of the Boston Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

Edward Lauterbach was toastmaster, and after
a few brief remarks, in which he expressed thank
fulness that the "last wicked vestige of the reform
movement had been swept away," read letters of
regret from Governor Roosevelt; Admiral Dewey
and Senator Depew. He then introduced Job E.
Hedges, whose toast was "Th* City of New- York."
Mr. Hedges said that while he- was Mayor Strong's
secretary he earned more than half his salary fol
lowing Edward Lauterbach around trying to hedge
off the harm he was doing. He was rewarded by
being made a Police Magistrate, and he resigned
as soon as Mr. Lauterbach ceased to be. anything
In the party. In a serious vein Mr. Hedges compli
mented the Police Department on its • ability to
handle great bodies of people more skilfully than
any police In the world.
The next speaker was Simeon Ford, whose toast
was "Our Guests." Mr. Ford said In part:
I have always admired the police of our city, and
think them a tine body of men, and I love to see
them enjoying themselves. Only to-day as I
walked down Fiftb-ave. and noted here and there
groups of policemen chatting together, and ap
parently so merry and well fed and free from
care, while rural visitors negotiated for gold bricks
with long lost relatives and removed whole sec
tions of the Dewey Arch. I could not but think that
did I not have a good Job keeping a hotel, I should
certainly try to be a policeman.
Vet. our trades are much alike. While we land
lords take In the public, make all sorts of charges
and glva them combined comforts of home and
club, you likewise take in the public on all sort*
of charges and give them. If not the comforts of
home, at least the comfort* of the club. And that
is not a Joke.
But seriously, gentlemen, I have a profound re
apeot for the police force, and especially its staff
and captains, for they are men who have literally
fought their war 'ip Inch by inch from the ranks,
and command, not by reason of wealth or family
or political Influence, , but by reason of- long ser
vice, ability fidelity, bravery and honesty. I wish
you long life, health and prosperity.
Judge GUdarsleevr made a brief announcement,
which was received with cheers, to the effect that
Edward Bell, as a memorial to his father, Isaac
Bell, one of the trustees of the Riot and Police
Fund of 1863. had deposited H.OOO with the Farmers"
Loan and Trust Company, the Income from which
was to provide each year a gold medal to be given
by the Commissioners for the most conspicuous act
of. bravery- by a policeman. ' Three cheer* were*
given for Mr. Bell. " :
In- th« !- absence of Senator Thomaa ' F. Grady,

serious veto, lauded tl Department. He
said that he saw many present who had been at the
last dinner, six years ago. They had had varied
experiences since then.
You have been through the mill since then,"
■aid Commissioner Keller. "The reformer-) had you
then, but now you've got the reformers. It is a
great credit to you that you treated the reformers
a great deal better than they treated you." Mr.
Keller said that the reform administration had
resulted In th» Importation of a lot of farmer*
who had Joined the Police Department, and he
spoke disparagingly of the ignorance and imperti
nence of the rural policeman. He liked a farmer,
he s>ald. but he liked him -in the f-irm.
Mr. Keller was th« only speaker who seriously
criticised the administration of Mayor Strong The
dinner broke up at about 12 o'clock, when Mr.
Lauterbach announced that "ambulances would b*

The man who was shot by the pistol of a police
man, as It lay on the ground, where It had fallen
from his pocket, was In about the same condition
last night as the night before and there seemed to
be a fair chance for his recovery.
The pistol was a most remarkable one. an 's its
pattern seems to be worthy of study by the makers
of all sorts of firearm*, large and small. It is ap
parently the only firearm thus far manufactured
which is able to shoot around a corner or to pitch
curves, as it were. For th» policeman and hM
wttn<?sses. the firemen, say that the pistol fell out
of his pocket and went off of Itself as it struck
the ground, and yet the course of the wound, from
the man's back, where it started, was downward.
Many great discoveries and inventions have been
made by accident, and if this pistol can only be
Imitated it will revolutionize warfare. Warfare has
not been revolutionized in the last three or four
weeks now, and it is about time It was. A few
great guns built on the principle of this itistasi
are what the British need. If they coulil only
place two of these sruns breech to breech and
make each one of them send a shot half way
around the outside of a hill or the Inside of a val
ley, the shots meeting on the opposite side, what
a thing it would be to clear out laagers and kopjeg
and all those other things that nobody understands,
the British army least of all!
Admiral and Mrs. Dewey arrived in the city from
Washington last evening to attend the concert at
Carnegie Hall thus evening in aid of the Dewey
Arch. They came on the train arriving here at
6:30 p. m., and drove directly to the Waldorf-As
toria, where the rooms which they occupied on
their former visit to this city had been reserved
for them. Arriving at the hotel, they went at once
to their apartments, here they dined. The Ad
miral refused to see any newspaper men. or to
make for publication any statement regarding af
fairs of the day. Both he and Mrs. Dewey spent
the evening in their rooms, and denied themselves
to almost all callers. The Admiral « stay in New-
York will be of short duration, as important mat
ters call for his constant presence In Washington
Just now. Both he and Mrs. Dewey seemed to be
in the best of health and spirits.
Chief Engineer Bensel. of the Dock Department,
announced yesterday that he hoped soon to secure
the building of a permanent landing for men-of
war, at. West Twenty-thlrd-st. and probably also
at West Forty-second-st. and West Thirty
fouxth-st. The expense of the landings, which are
to be ornamental as well as useful, will be trifling,
he thinks.
"These landings have been needed for a long
time." said .Mr. Bensel yesterday. "Whenever a
foreign man-of-war anchors in the North. River we
have to construct a temporary landing, and a few
of such visits will prove more expensive than the
construction of a permanent landing. We have
long needed such landings for men-of-war anchored
in the North River, and I think It is high time we
had them."
The cost of the breakwater to be built near
Pier A in the North River is estimated at 180,000.
The new park, bulkhead wall and berth for the
training ship New-Hampshire at East Twenty
third-st. will cost about JT.OOO, it is estimated.
