New- York Tribune.) ißr CAV.I.r. Id TIIE TRIBUNE.) London. June (5, 1 a. m.— The members of the New-York Chamber of Commerce had the pleasurable excitement of being lionized by the London Chamber of Commerce at the Grocers' Hall. It was a hospitable dinner and an im 1 resfive scene, and the good feeling was Infec tious. The whole front table was forced to rise gad submit to being- photographed, and it was a happy, smiling: group. Andrew Carnegie was tppsrently the happiest man. and Levi P. Mor- Un mi mistaken for a handsome edition of Samuel .T. TiMen. J. Pierpont Morgan modestly concealed him self behind Mr. Morton ¦when the photographer's flash came, yet he remained the dominant feat ure of the evening, nil the Englishmen present craning their necks to make him out. This international millionaire conference was rnnrked by a splendid array of gold plate, piled up behind the chairman, consisting of loving cups and platters' and other property of th* Grocers' Guild. Thn galleries were filled with women, and the conversation between the hosts and their guests was far more animated than on ordinary occasions of a festive- character. The table decorations were exclusively English roses, and the old hall was stately in its dignity of old oak carvings. A half dozen American speeches were made, by Morris K. Jeeup. Andrew Carnegie. Joseph 11. Choate and others, and Lord Brassey. Lord Lansdowne. the Lord Chief Justice, and other famous Englishmen returned the American com pliments with easy grace. It was a carnival of good feeling, and the ap plause which followed Lord Braasey*s repetition of }he Old time phrase. "Blood is thicker than water," pointed the moral of the festive even- Ing.

JESUP. ANDREW CARNEGIE AND C. A. GRISCOM MAKE ADDRESSES. (By Th» Associated Press.) London. June s.— At the banquet tendered by the London Chamber of Commerce to the dele rates of the New-York Chamber at the Grocers* Hall to-night, no effort was spared to honor the American guests, but it must be confessed that the latter did not sustain the reputation America has for brilliant after dinner speaking, nor did the British speakers do much to relieve the i tedium of four hours of addresses. All th" speeches, however, teemed with ex treme friendliness and faith in the establishment of permanent friendly relations. All the speak ers expressed the belief that Great Britain and the United States would rule the destinies of the world, and that their unwritten alliance •would always work for peace and the benefit of mankind. Lord Brappey presided. On his right was Mr. Choate and on his left Lord Lansdowne. Morris K. Jesup, Andrew Carnegie. Cornelius N. Bliss, Lord Alverstore <Lord Chief Justice of England). Clement A. Griscom, George G. Ward, Lord Strathcona and Mount Royal. Levi P. Morton. Lord Avebury. president of the Associated Chambers of Commerce, and J. Pierpont Morgan were among those seated at the table of honor. In all nearly three hundred were present. THE WELCOME TO AMERICANS In welcoming the delegates Lord Brassey, who made the first speech, said: We welcome them as the representatives of the skill and enterprise which have turned the vast resources of the American continent to the service of mankind. We are largely sharers in these benefits. Our teeming millions could not live without the food America produces and the raw materials for our Industries. America teaches us lessons not only In the creation but in the liberal distribution of wealth. Referring to the debt Great Britain owed to the New-York Chamber of Commerce at the time the Venezuela difficulty arose. Lord Bras pey said ac desired to mark Great Britain's de»p sense of the service rendered, adding: To no other nation are we drawn as we are to our kinsmen across the Atlantic. Th«» wisely directed friendship of our two peoples — not as yet, and perhaps never to be cemented by for mal alliance — should be a potent influence. "Working together for the common good of all mankind, we may keep open the door for trade. we may spread civilization, we may protect the oppressed, and we may establish peace among th*- nations. There was a murmur of expectancy as Lord Lansdowne, the Foreign Secretary, rose to toast President M-'Kinley. He said: I Imagine that this honorable duty has been assigned to me because 1 am connected with the Department of Foreign Affairs, and because it may be that a toast coming from my lips may seem to d^not 1 ? something more than a mere private expression of admiration and good will. I think I may say that to all the subjects of his majesty, it requires an effort to think of our relations 'with the Unit"! States as foreign relations. <r'ro!<nped cheers.) All 'ho?.- who like myself, are servants of the public feel that they hold an unwritten commission that no pains shall be spared to maintain the most friendly relations. . ... , With regard to President McKlnley. we think of the great office he fills, and. in addition to his public cares. we remember the burden of private anxiety he has to bear, and it is the prayer of our whole country that his wife may be restored to health and that he may continue IS be to the whole world a potent influence for the e-ood of the human race. THE REPLY OF MR. .TESIT Morris K. Je?up. president of the New-York Chamber of Commerce, replying to the address of welcome, spoke as follows: Mr. Chairman. My Lords and Gentlemen: It is said that kind words are the music of the »oria. For the gracious and kindly words with which you have made us welcome, and for the gener ous warmth of our reception manifested in every eye and felt In the clasp of every hand, it is my privilege to express the thanks of the New-Y<>ik Chamber of Commerce and especially of my as sociates here present as your guests at this memorable banquet.

'Copyright; 1PO1 : By Thf N'«-w Tor* Trlbiin* 1 fBT CABLE TO THE TRIBUNE.] London. June 6. 1 a. m.— The Dante Society held a high literary carnival yesterday after noon in its academic quarters in Harley-st., and literary, singularly enough, under American au spices Mrs. Craigie was delivering a lecture on Dante and Botticelli, and the American Ambas sador was Introducing her. She appeared before a large audience in a most becoming costume of white, and read a short paper in which the lives and characters of the poet and painter w?re connected with literary art. It was a brilliant essay, happily phrased and containing many characteristic examples of keen analysis and luminous style. One of the neat est hits was the explanation that when the old time Florentine painters wished to paint a saint they employed as a model some sinner of irreproachable birth and good social standing. When Mrs. Cralgic had closed her delightful paper, the American Ambassador took up the parable and reverted to his experiences at Har vard, when he was a pupil of Longfellow and there was an ideal Dante society at Boston. It consisted of three member! Longfellow, Lowell and Norton. He also referred to the present objective aim in London of a Dante Society foundation library, devoted to the Italian mas ter, and excited the envy of the members by describing the splendid Dante library which had been collected at Cornell University. John Moray's reference last night to Mr. Car negie's scheme of benefiting the Scottish univer sities has given great satisfaction. Pome critics were inclined to object to the scheme, because. it was thought, it would have been a bribe to the youths of Scotland to be content with an inferior education. What Mr. Carnegie really intends is to make education at the Scottish universities at one and the same time better, cheaper and more widely extended The English bench and bar rallied in force at the King's Hall Hoi born Restaurant last night to pay a splendid tribute to Matt re Labort Over five hundred judges, barristers and so licitors were present at the Hardwicke Society's dinner, and wit:, th. exception of the Lord Chief Justice 10 prominent jurist or lawyer was absent. The regular order of proceedings was followed until after 11 o'clock, with a series of dull, perfunctory speeches by Justices Hodges. Lord Hardwicke. Sir Edward Carson. Lord Halsbury. Sir Robert Finlay. Sir Francis Jeune and others. Nearly every speaker re ferred prematurely to M. Labori, and there was enthusiastic applause when on.- or two of the prosiest speakers were reminded bluntly that they must not waste time. At last, after the King, Parliament and bench and bar had been duly honored, M. Labori's turn came, and the great hall «as swept with a tempest of appUuse. Tall, erect, with flash ing eyes and a unique personality which electri fied his audience, be towered beside the somno lent Lord Chancellor and made a speech in English which nobody present would be likely to forget. He began with apologies for using the English tongue, but invalidated them by a display of fiery eloquence, pointed and emphasized by French action and dramatic gestures. He spoke, without hesitation, and with splendid force and masterful simplicity. He declined to regard the compliments showered upon him as personal flatteries and. although he was deeply touched by them' he had merely done his professional duty and the English bar was recognizing the truth that the right of defence was a natural right which it was the common aim and solemn obligation of lawyers of all nations to protect. He reduced the legal practice of the civilized world to th« syllogism that without the right of defence there could he no bar, and that without a bar there could be no independence. The. effect of this eloquent plea, delivered with strong gestures, vibrating voice end flashing eyes was fairly electric. There was a tumult of applause when this champion of the bar of all countries took his seat, and the Hardwire Society was conscious that it had dignified the legal profession In honoring the defender of Dreyfus. .

DRfl DOTY AND FOWLER THINK IT WIT.L NOT BE PRACTICABLE TO EXAMINE ALL FOR TUBERCULOSIS The exclusive announcement in The Tribune yesterday that T. V Powderly. Commissioner- General of Immigration, had Instructed Com missioner Fit. -hie at this port to debar in future all immigrants afflicted with tuberculosis aroused keen Interest among those New -York physicians who have been trying for some time to impress upon the public the fart that con sumption is a communicable disease Opinions were not unanimous, however, M to whether it was a commendable step forward in official rec ognition of medical science or ft rather teio draf tic treatment of Immlgants afflicted by a dlse.irc whose spread may be checked by th- use of extremely simple precaution?. Some physicians seen by a Tribune reporter yesterday were un willing to let their names be published for fear that they might be misunderstood as rppoMng the Federal Government's policy, but one said: "The public is not yet prepared for this step; and while It is along the line of progress, yet It will by its harshness check rather than help the growing feeling among the masses that con sumptives are dangerous to those around them. The recent crusade of the local Health Board acainst spitting in the streetcars was one phase of the education of the public, and the hearty way in which that crusade waa supported by the press and the people showed a gratifying In crease In the general intellißence. Yet a propo sition made now forcibly to remove all persons afflicted with tuberculosis from their friends and families, as is done with smallpox patients, would arouse a violent storm of Indignation and set back for years the progress which has beer already made toward thai end. 1 think this bar to immigrants will have the same effect, be cause the public will get the Idea thai medical men have become crank"; on tuberculosis. Tbe people ill ask: "Is it reasonable to exclude im migrants from our shores because they are suf fering from a disease against which we raise no quarantine within our borders?' and I think we should have to admit thai such discrimination is not reasonable, It would be better, 1 think. to wait until we isolate our consumptives at home before we raise an Insurmountable barrier against consumptives coming from abroad." Another physician took exception to this ar gument, and pointed out the fact thai while we do not Isolate persons In this city who are afflict ed with leprosy or favus, we still debar all immi grants suffering from those diseases, and public opinion sustains the immigration officials in so doing. NOT COMMUNICABLE IN EARLY STAGES. Or. George B. Fowler, of No 18 Knst Fifty eighth-st.. said: This step Is too radical, I think. I have given a gn.it deal of attention to tuberculosis, and I do not consider it to be communicable in Its Incipient stages but only when the expectoration has become, profuse. The 'examination of a person guspected of the disease Is not to be done in haste, and If rot done carefully Is not worth doing at all. In many cases it would resolve Itself Into a battle of exports over this and that individual. Such ex aminations would involve distinction altogether too flr»- for the practical workings of an immigration bureau. In a word, the vox regulation is not prac ticable. At the Loomis Sanatorium for Consumptives, No t<">4 West Forty-ninth-st.. where chronic and incurable patients are housed, the reporter was told that In spite of the close contact In which the nurses were obliged to come with the slowly dying inmates, not one nurse had ever developed the disease. This Is attributed to the strict precautions taken to collect the sputa In little paper boxes and burn them in a furnace. By means of the sputum only is the disease com municated. The same precautions taken in the sanatorium could, of course, be taken in th» patients' homes, but the trouble is that such care is not taken In the homes. : nd even in the hospital the officers, nurses and attendants have to keep unremitting watch upon most of the patients, especially the poorer and more ignorant ones, to prevent them from carelessly disregard ing the rules of the Institution as to the deposit of sputum not In handkerchiefs, but in the little paper boxes provided.

TILLMAN RETAINS HIS SEAT SAYS HE IS FORCED TO WITHDRAW RESIGNATION BY M'LAURLVS "UNDIG NIFIED AND PUERILE ACTION." [ny Trt.E ,n.ini TO THE TRIBUNE.] Columbia. P. C. June .".—Senator Tillman withdrew his resignation ps Senator to-night. He wrote the following letter to Governor M. - - Rweene] under to-day's date: I am in receipt of your telegram, in which you say: "1 understand Senator McLaurin's letter to be a withdrawal of his resignation." and I have read that worthy's communication in which he graciously consents at your request "to hold on to hi.« commission as ITnlted States Senator, and continue to serve the State as he has done In the past 1.1 the be-st of his ability." This leaves me one of three alternatives; to appeal to th«? Democratic Executive Committee to take the- matter up and determine what the best Interest of the party requires to be done; to HT>pe,Tl •.. tns Senate Itself to determine the question ns tn whether a resignation from that lw»dy to take effect at some future time is bind ing, or withdraw my own resignation. There are no precedents on this subject, be cause In the hundred an.! twenty-five years of our national life, with more than two hundred resignations from the Senate, no Senator has hitherto been willing t.» oooupy lh< despicable attitude now assume I by Senator McLaurin and forced on v. •• I am certain of one thing: thai th" Executive of a State has no authority to decline a resignation that has been tendered, and I am equally certain that had your ex cellency confined your action within legal bounds your appointees would be seat 1 in the Senate when th.-it body meets in December and bold their s« its until the Legislature should net in January. My chief regret is that I am forced by your action to engage In what the outside worM will consider a same of: opera bouffe, by withdraw ing my own resignation after Senator McLau i In'a undignified and puerile action; but the pur pose for which it was tendered has been thwart •-¦il by Senator McLaurin's precipitous acceptance of Executive advice. Bob" Acres has been out • •.' •!•• for once. As 1 hive already said. I had no motive or purpose In resigning except to force M< - Laurin's resignatlcn, rind there is nothing for me to do but accept the situation and withdraw my own resignation, if it be lawful to do so. MAY RE NEW RESIGNATIONS. With the Governor's "last word" at Senator Till man and th( withdrawal of the Senator's resig nation all would seem to be over, but to-night Senator McLaurin! after speaking bitterly of the senior Senator, made the declaration that If Tillman will now tender to the Governor the unconditional resignation of his office, he (Me- Laurln) would consider this a direct challenge to him an. l would likewise resign and enter the contest for Tillraan's place. Governor McSweeney'a letter was a surprise to Senator Tillmon. He has been making and unmaking Governors anil Senators for so many years that a revolt never occurred to him. The Senator was intercepted this afternoon while going to attend the closing exercises of the State College for Women. in which he takes great pride, and a copy of the Governor's let ter was shown to him. The Senator remarked: "He feels that his dignity has been outraged a little, but he does not touch on the really im portant point, that he claimed the right to de cline the resignations." The Senator was asked if he had noticed the public Indorsements received by McSweeney. "Yes, and I notice they are mostly from my old, inveterate enemies." Next year, he said, there would be so many candidates that It would be impossible for Candi dates to show their fitness for office. It was im possible for thirty men to be heard In one day. He added: Governor McSweeney has defeated my plan and lent himself to McLaurin as a ladder of escape. I believe that as the people understand fully the result of Governor -Sweeney ac tion, : instead of patting himself on the back and taking the little dozen or forty letters he has as the consensus of public opinion he will find he has made an awful blunder as a Demo crat. The primary next year, unless the com mitttee arrange to have a double se,t of candi dates meeting each other from opposite sides of the State, will be a farce. Asked if he would resign to enter against Mc- Laurin next slimmer, Tillman said: I will not. enter the primary next year. I only resigned to get at McLaurin. I never would have done so at Gaffney but for the fact that the ca'ndiilat.-s who wanted to get at him were not in a position to do so.

The American Museum of Natural History is about to send an expedition into China to study the life and customs of the Chinese and to col lect ethnological specimens which will be ex hibited In this city. The'work will take at least three years, and will be most thoroughly done. At the time when China was the centre of the world's Interest the museum felt the lack of a Chinese exhibit. A wealthy citizen of this city heard of the museum's needs in this direction, and has supplied the funds necessary to carry on the work. His name will not be made public at present. The work will be along lines similar to that now being carried on by the museum in Siberia. Corea and other countries. A feature of the expedition will be a careful study of Buddhism, and to that end Dr. B. Laufer. bf ' this city. will spend a year in a Buddhist temple near Peking. He will llv« with the priests and witness as many of their religions ceremonies as possible. Dr. Laufer vi as a member of the Jesus North Pacific ex pedition sent out by the museum, and was in Siberia from 1806 until 1900 He said yesterday to a Tribune reporter: I have Just finished working up material gath ered during two years of investigation in Siberia, and will sail from Sin Francisco for China late this month. I shall spend the Hi -• few months in Shanghai, studying the people of the coast and tneir customs. Then. I shall co to Peking to take up the study of Rii'Mhism. I hope '•> spend a year in a Buddhist tt-mple near the capital. I expect to live the life of the priests and i-^rn from them the details of their stranse relicion. After that I am going in'o the Interior to collect ethnological specimens. In View of the present unsettle^ stare of the country. I cannot say just where my work will be done. If Manchuria quiets down it is quite probable that I shall go into that region. I do not expect in return to the United Stares for at least three years. EJTRADiTiOy OR REQllfilTlO\* LEOAIi POINT INVOLVED IN THE INDICT MENT OF LUIS MORET MUXOZ, AH RESTF.D IN PORTO RICO. The grand jury yesterday took up the case of Luis Morel Munoz, who was arrested in San Juan on Tuesday on the arrival of the trans port McClellan. «,n advices from the police of this city. Complaint was made to the police by General lTrlbe-ll T rlbe-l of Colombia, that Munoz failed to deliver $41,690. which was to be given to Genera] ITribe-Urlb* by Munoz. Munoz, when arrested, said be bad received a package in Caracas to deliver to ITribe ITribe, and. being unaware of the value of in* package, left it with the purser. After bearing several witnesses, the grand jury found an Indictment against Munoz for grand larceny in the first degree. The papers will at once be made out for requisition of the defendant from Porto Rico. After Governor Odell has signed the papers they will be for warded to Washington. As this is the first case since the decision of the Supreme Court in th insular cases, the Interesting question of whether an ordinary requisition or an extradition will have to be prepared la raised This. will be de termined by the authorities in Washington, in accordance with the recent decision of the United States Supreme Court. Charles Frederick Adams, of the law firm of Coudert Brothers, at No. 7". Broadway, who pre pared the complaint in the case of Da Lima against Collector Bidwell. in which a decision was handed down in the United States Supreme Court two weeks ago. gave an expression 01 opinion on the Munoz case at his office yester day afternoon. He said: While the cases decided by the United States Supreme Court in reference to De Lima's an i Downes's suits don't necessarily decide this point, as they referred only to customs matters, the apparent inference of the reasoning of most of the judges is that Porto Rico is American terri tory for the purposes of the administration of criminal justice; therefore the case mentioned is one in which "interstate rendition" would be al lowed—that is to say. the prisoner will probably be brought back to this city on the requisition of Governor Odell."

June 6, 1 a. m.— London has had a fult American day. The Derby, won by W. C. Whit ney's Volodyovski in the record time of 2 min utes 40 4-5 seconds, was run with a half dozen American jockeys in the saddle, with several American horse owners striving for the blue ribbon of the English turf, and with L. ReifC winning, after riding in true American style. Reiff's and Mr. Whitney's victory was wit nessed by a great throng of American visitor*, and was welcomed with strenuous American cheers, but it was not an unpopular result, for the favorite, which won. was an English bred horse and carried an immense amount of money. Volodyovski was a hot favorite until his bad public trial at Newmarket hi the Craven week, when many of his supporters began to hedg»; but confidence was. restored when the trainer was reported to be satisfied with the horse* condition, and yesterday th« betting was heavily on him as the best two-year-old of last year. The race was a splendid show, with an im mense assemblage of excited spectators. Fox hall P. Keene's Olympian made an unexpected display of speed, and was leading when the last quarter mile was reached. L Reiff. who had been riding warily, then went to the front al most without an effort, but was closely followed by Cannon on William 111. Olympian had forced the pace to hi* St cost, and was] out of the race. Volodyovski was hailed as the winner by thousands of throats before crossing the line. He was not forced, and might have done better. Cannon was three-quarters of a length behind, with a long gap between him and Veronese and Fioriform The scene when Mr Whitney's horse shot by was one of fervid enthusiasm. It mattered not who was the owner or who was the jockey. Th* favorite had justified the hopes of a horde of backers, and the immense throng was satisfied and jubilant. The weather was fine, but the drouth had left the roads dusty, and there, was less driving from London than usuaL The railway traffic exceed ed the record of Derby Day. scores of trair.3 being dispatched for Epsom. Many prominent Americans ran the risk of being late at the dinner of the London Cham ber of Commerce in order to witness the best and most sportsmanlike Derby of recent years. It was not as popular an event as the tri umphs of the Prince of Wales and Lord Rose bery. which I have witnessed at Epsom, but there was money on the English bred horse, and that was enough. There was no feeling against either his American owner or his American jockey. Mr. Whitney's victory was taken ax philosophically as Mr. Morgan's purchase of an English built fleet. L N. P.

The vehicles first rolled in by twos and threes, and then by dozens and scores, until the white road leadlnj to the Downs smoked with the dust of the vast, heterogeneous cavalcade, and the air was filled with a weird medley from tin trumpets, barrel organs and cornets.
