Governor Roosevelt. Senator Platt and Chair
man Odell of the Republican State Committee
had luncheon tog-ether and a talk of two hours'
duration in the Fifth Avenue Hotel yesterday
afternoon. When the Governor gets back to
Albany he •■■.-•:;■ tell something about the confer
ence. Until th-n the three men are pledged to se
crecy on the subject.
The Governor arrived in the city early in the
afternoon and went to the house of Douglas
Robinson, his brother-in-law, at No. 422 Mai -
eon-aye. He arrived at the Fifth Avenue Hotel
about 2 p. m. and went into the headquarters
of the Republican State Committee, where Mr
Odell had been attending to business most of
the day up to that time. Senator Platt was at
his office at No. 40 Broadway, looking after his
express business in the forenoon. When Been
there by newspaper men he said he expected to
have a talk with the Governor in the afternoon,
but he would not talk with the newspaper men
about political or legislative topics. It was a
few minutes after 2 p. m. when Senator Platt
pot to the Fifth Avenue Hotel. He went up
stairs and sent word down that he was ready
to Beet the Governor and Mr. Odell at lunch
eon. They went upstair? immediately.
Scon after I p. m. Governor Roosevelt and
Mr. leU came downstairs and met several
newspaper men and politicians in the lobby of
the hotel. Th" Governor at once made the an
nouncement that there had been an agreement
not to talk about the conference until he re
turned to Albany.
"I probably will tell all there is to •■ said
when I rawt my newspaper friends in Albany on
Tuesday evening," the Governor said. "Mean
while we have nothing 1 to say."
Some newspaper articles were shown to him.
One declared that Henry C. Payne, the Republi
can National Commlti of Wisconsin, had
received a positive assurance from Governor
Roosevelt that the Governor would accept a
nomination for the Vice-Presidency. Anoth* .
declared that the Governor had written a letter
to hi* friend Senator Lodge in Washington,
saying' in positive terms that be is not, and will
not be, a candidate for the Vic*-Pre.«?ideney.
Governor Roosevelt betrayed Interest in the two
articles, and he uttered an exclamation when
his eye rested on the statement about his al
leged letter to Senator Lodge. Then he smiled
and said:
"Well, you have the whole thing there. What
more could I say* You can take your choice."
The Governor remained at the hotel for twenty
minutes and talk" 1 cheerfully with several ac
quaintances, but nothing more could be obtained
from him regarding his talk with Serator Platt
and Mr. OdelL He was at Sherry's in the even
ing, attending a meeting of the Tenement House
Committee of the Charity Organization Society,
and later be went to a private dinner with an
old college friend. This morning the Governor
will go to Yonkers and take luncheon with F.
W Holla and Dr. Albert Shaw. He probably
will go on to Albany from Tankers.
Senator Platt and Mr. Odell yesterday after
noon declared that they had agreed to let Gov
ernor Roosevelt do all the talking about the
conference. It was evident that there had been
an agreement which was satisfactory to all the
three men at the luncheon. There had been no
difference of opinion, apparently, and there was
the pleasantest possible feeling about the result
of the talk. , "' - :
Politician* and newspaper men understood
that there had been a talk about the V Ice-Pres
idency and about some legislative subjects, and
there had been complete harmony and cordiali-
V Governor Roosevelt and the other Repub
lican leaders seemed happy. Several shrewd
nomlcian* who were at the 'hotel said there was
nt doubt that there would be a a*, to th«
painter the twinty-flr.? cints — especially If the 1
lady wuz Irish." j
Xo one said anything, and McChuck con- !

few things to suit me own fancy, whether they '
fetched five cints aftherward or not."

State Senators Groodsen, Cogg-^shall and Wil
• ■■■x were at the Fifth Avenue Hotel in the af
ternoon to talk with Senator Platt and Mr.
Odell. I few ether Republican members of the
Legislature w-re in the city, but they kept away
from the hotel. Senator Plat! and Mr. Odell
were away from the hotel last evening, and
few politicians were to be found there then.
Senator Platt. It was said, had made no plans
for talks with legislators to-day.
• My story concerns a club In a certain Western
City," said Warren Stanton. of Philadelphia, yes
terday at in- Holland House,
THE DISAP- "which I do not care to locate
LANCE OF more nearly, for the reason that
THE TABLE. 1 have enjoyed its hospitality,
and its members might think it
'infra dig* If I mentioned it by name. To this
club, which was exceedingly small and select, one
of the members presented a table, which was^ a
marvel, made from the trunk of an enormous tree.
The top consisted of only two piece?, and when
they first brought It to the club, so larg-e was it
that it became necessary to remove a section of the
wall before It could be installed in its proper place.
The members h.id eagerly awaited its aavent. but
once it was set up, tney quickly gTew to haie it.
It wasn't especially nice to ioi.k at. and on ac
count of its size it couidn't be taken apart or moved
into another room or out of. the way into in ob
scure corner, but insisted on aiways occupying the
centre of the dir.ins room. It rapidly became that
particular club's "old man of the sea.' and disso
lution began to loom large on the club's horizon,
when it suddenly brought relief by disappearing.
One morning, when, in tne pursuit of his duties, the
steward betook himself to the dining room he found
it untenanted by the table, and tile place where it
had been, represented by an obtrusive and insistent
blank space. Anxiousiy peering about him, he
looked out of the window, up the chimney and
minutely examined the floor, but without discov
ering any clew as to what had become of the table.
As the mercvbers dropped in. ono by one. the mystery
deepened, and the i>a.«sing days brought no expla
nation, and the disappearance of tne table became
the talk of the city, even overshadowing a Presi
dential election Ihen in progress. Finally it got
into print, with the result that one of the 'yellows'
offered a reward for a clew to the mystery, first
stipulating, however, that the person who furnished
the clew must so testify in the suit that would
undoubtedly be brought. The steward wasn't p;ir
ticulariy .sup^r«*'tiouH, as he was a ■headed
Englishman intent only on the duties of his place,
in which he took much personal pride, coming, as
he did. from a race of butlers and house servants.
But the loss of that table preyed on his prosaic
mind He knew it could nor be got sat of the
club by door or window, since it was too large,
and could only be taken away by removing a por
tion ... Yet the table was gone. How
was It removed? Only one other explanation pre
sented Itself, and that was that some agency not
human had removed the eyesore. From that mo
rr.^nt he wa« never alone in the club, and left its
roof in the evening as soon as ever his duties per
mitted HI? belief in a spiritual force havintr been
at work, it may be remarked, was shared by more
than one member."

it whereupon the driver produced a letter ad
(jrpeced to the House Committee, ana a member or

chanced to be present, after reading the letter or
dered the admission of the tablr?. The letter, which
was Jocosely entitled. "Leaves irom a Missing
Table ' by M. A. Hogany. offered the following ex
planation of the mystery: It seems that all th<»
.•ervanls wrnt home at i o'clock, but any members
who were there were ':-.—■ to stay a* late, as they
pleased, and one nljrhi found two of the members,
one a former captain of his college crew and the
other of the football eleven, seated at the smoking
room fire. The talk ha.l turned on the table and
the curse it had proved to the club, when the foot
ball captain, with the light of Inspiration in his
eye«= said. Bill, let's get rid of that table, or the
,- thing will get rid of the club.' To think with
them was to act. A hasty search of the prem
ises brought forth an axe, a sew and a meat axe,
and with the«e weapons they went through their
giant foe. All the fireplaces and tne kitchen range
were brought into play, and by 5 o'clock all that
remained of the vampire that had be*»n sucking
the life, fr'im that glad young club w.>re some
assorted piles cf > e h*><> and a dining room floor cov

hour's hard work collected and did away with
th**se evidences of guilt, and after an agreement to
socrrcy. until a. substitute for the destroyed article
could be provided, the conspirators nail a cheerful
drink and separated. The natural love of gos3<n

Havana, Feb. General Ludlow sailed for New-
York to-day on bnard the steamer Havana. He
was accompanied by his wife. The General says
he will return before the end of the month, but
many persons believe Mrs. Ludlow will not come
back with Mm, as she is considering a trip to Eu
rope with her daughter. Consequently, a large
number of floral offerings was sent to the steam°r.
Robert P. Porter also sailed on the Havana, hav
ing completed his work of classification under the
tariff. He says that under the existing arrange
ments a reduction is impossible. Such a step, he
declares, would be a great blow against Governor-
General Wood's success, as the surplus reported la
practically mythical, most of the funds having to
be paid out in connection with schools and prisons;
and when these institutions, which legitimately
should have been included in last year's estimates,
are finished, a deficit will probably exist. Lieuten
ant-Colonel Joseph P. Sanger. Director of Census,
will remain here a week longer.
General Ludlow has appointed the following mem
bers of the Havana Board of Health: Sefiors Emil
iano Nunez, Carlos Finiey, Ber. Valdex. Carlos
De-(vernirie. Joaquin Jacobaeo and Manuel Delfin.
The inspectors of the Military Sanitary Service,
the Chief Surgeon and the Chief of the Sanitary
Department will be ex officio members of the Board
during the axistance of the Military Department
of Havana. The Mayor of the city will be ex of
ficio president.
Samuel Gompers. who ■ now *s Havana, says
many reforms are necessary in the condition of
the Cuban workmen, the principal one being
shorter hours. He says that Government officials
in charge of public works have told him that since
the eight hour day has been introduced on the
Government works the men have worked better
and more steadily. He considers the eight hour
day essential under existing conditions of climate.
The c*r drivers. Mr. Gompers asserts, are now
working eighteen hours out of twenty-four. The
only way the? men can get a remedy is by means
of h'.ws or decrees, as it is impossible in the exist
ing state of the labor market for the men to force
reform upon their employers.
During a recent performance at the Albisu
Theatre one of the actors produced an American
flag, which was greeted with hlsy^s, while a Span
ish flag, whi-h also was shown, was heartily
cheered. Many people believe this incident fh'iws
the true sentiment of the Cubans toward the
Americans, but th*- fact is that a large portion of
the population cf Havana la Spanish, particularly
the clus* whion attend.? theatres like the Albisu.
Numerous) fires occur every year, the 'Windsor
Hot.'l holocaust beir.K one. In which there is great
Icj>s of Jiff and property where there would be little
or no loss if tne building had a proper fire alarm
box In it. The Gamfwel! Auxiliary Fire Alarm
System furr.ish such service. Thrir boxes are con
nected with the street tire alarm boxes. When the
ring in their box is pull-d down, exactly the same
result is producttfas it the nearest street box itself
had been pulled, and says all the time lost in
finding a key, going to a street box. opening: it and
sending the alarm— a saving- of three to ten min
utes or more when i«*»ronds even count larjrely in
paving life and property. When people neglect to
provide such protection as these boxes afford they
are responsible, morally, at least, for any Injury
resultlnif to the person or property of others. There
can be no question that this service may be classed
as the very cheapest of fire Insurance.
