JUSTICE JEROME RETURNS.
HIS VIEWS ON SUNDAY LAWS NOT GEN
ERALLY FAVORED BY UPSTATE
LEGISLATORS.
. Justice Jerome, the District Attorney-elect, ar
rived in town last night from Lakevllle. Conn..
where he went last Monday to recuperate from the
effects of the strain under which he labored during
the campaign. Justice Jerome left LakeV.lle about
«:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and arrived at the
Grand Central Station at 9:99 o'clock. He was
accompanied by Assistant District Attorneys Gar
van and Gans. The "Fighting Jud*re" was in high
spirits, and seemed to have regained all his old
time -vigor. His ruddy countenance indicated that
he had spent most of the week in the open air. A
•core of reporters met the judge Jit the station.
He would not name the men who are to form his
staff In the District Attorney's office, but intimated
that Assistant District Attorneys Schurman. Oar
van and Gans wtuld be retained. On the subject
cf James W. Osbornc's retention he was non-com
mittal.
Justice Jerome and his companions were a hun
gry crowd when they alighted from the train.
They went immediately to a restaurant and had
luncheon, after which the justice went to his
JipE.rtme.nts in the Brunswick, at Tw:i:y-sixth-Bt.
a.nd Broadway. Mrs. Jerome and her young son
will remain in Lakevilie probably until Thanks
giving.
Justice Jerome does not. appear to be getting any
particular encouragement from the up State Re
publican leaders In his hope to bring about an
amendment of the present excise laws, which will
permit the selling of liquor in certain hours on
Sunday. From information obtained last night it
would seem that the Idea of open saloons on
Sunday meets considerable disfavor among the
eounti members of the legislature. Many of them
fear that If freer laws are made for this city. Buf
falo, Rochester. Syracuse. I'tica and Albany will
urge similar amendments for their particular lo
calities, ar.d that thus in the course of time laxer
laws will extend to the smaller cities and towns.
When Senator Platt was asked how he regarded
Justice Jerome's views on Sunday opening, he de
clined to commit himself further than to say:
"1 stand on this subject where I have always
Btood. I do not think that I can add anything to
that."
•Do you think. Senator, that if Justice Jerome
goes to Albany to urge such amendments it will
be possible for him to get through such legisla
tion?"
•'As to that I can't say. It is for the legislature
to decide." was the answer.
Colonel George W. Dunn, chairman of the Repub
lican State Committee, said that he did not wish to
discuss the subject at present. Another up State
leader, who wished his name withheld, said:
"I do not believe that is possible to obtain such
legislation immediately. It win first be necessary to
change the opinion cf the country members in re
gard to open saloons on Sunday, for at the present
time they are averse to it. They fear that if the
laws effecting the city of New-York ere mnde Jess
stringent there will be a movement in many of the
• other cities of the State for similar amendments.
Thus, they fear that in the course of time open
saloons will find their way into the towns, and
villages. They do not seem to understand that the
conditions which prevail in such & cosmopolitan city
«f< this require different legislation from that for
cities up State, in which the foreign element is not
as large."
The -opinions of Justice Jerome are heartily sus
tained by the German-Americans of this city. and
the German newspapers have received letters from
all quarters' indorsing an open saloon or. Sunday in
other than the hours of church service.
Herman Ri<Jd*r. head of the German-American
V Tleloim Union, said yesterday:
\ "I don't believe that any saloon should be per
i jnitted to open on Sunflay before 12 o'clock. After
that lime let the saloons open their al3e doors, so
that one may. he pleases, sit down at a table per-
TnitteS to open on Sunday before 12 o'clock. After
|t hat time let the suloons opf-n their -13e door*, so
[that one may. if he pleases, sit down at a table- ar.d
have a glass of beer. I do not believe that at any
lime on Sunday the saloons should open their front
/doors as on weekdays, for I believe that there
(should be some respect shown to that part of the
| 'community which does not want to patronize a
ealoon."
"'Do you believe that the present law can be
amended?" was asked.
"'As to that I do rot know, bat I think that we
do not need to wait for Albany to act on this mat
ter. I believe that the chief of police can issue
orders which will fully meet the situation. Let him.
for instance, instruct his officers to arrest any sa
loonkeeper who la found seMtas; liquor before noon
on Sunday, and to let him alone after that hour."
Frank Mos.«, who was a Police Commissioner un
der Mayor Strong and who has been mentioned as
a possible successor to Mr. Murphy, raid that be
fully coinciafd with the ciewns on sumptuary legisla
tion which Mr. Low expressed both in his letter of
acceptance ar:<J also on the stump in the campaign.
Continuing Mr. Moss said:
"My record as Police Comml.=?!or»r tells better
than anything else that I do not favor a too strin
■ sent interpretation of the law. I Co not car* 1 to dis
cuss -he advisability of legislation at Albany, as
I do not think that that is the immediate question.
Instead it is the question of ho-?.- the law as it
. stands is> to be administered."
WOMEN'S LEAGUE TO CONTINUE.
MRS. JOSEPHINE SHAW LOWELL SAYS SHE
HAS NOT BEEIGNEP.
Contrary tr. rumor, the Woman's Municipal
I>ea*ue will not so out of existence, but will con
tinue its campaign of usefulness. That was what
Mr«. Josephine .Shaw liowe!!. who. it was reported,
had resigned from the learu», said yesterday.
"I was not at the rxc'.t'.ng meeting held last
Friday, when the question ma brought up whether
are should disband because some of us thought
■there was a growing lack of interest In the work
on the part of many of the members." she said.
"Instead of leaving the league, as reported. I am
enthusiastically devoting myself to its welfare, and
shall, as a member of the advisory committee,
Jabor for the reform of municipal evils."
THE ACOItNS" OOOD WORK.
William F. Kin jr. ex-president of the Merchants"
Association, said yesterday:
Now that th? election is over and the cause of
pood poverament has triumphed. I desire to say a
jrood word for the Ord«=r of Acorn*. The order was
<*«rnposed originally of a group of active younsr
• newspaper men who. knowing the condition!" as
•they existed In this city— particularly in the Police
Department— felt that the time had come to form
■ an orgnnjtation of their own -which would aid In
driving from office those who stood sponsor for the
existing «?vil?. The Order of Acorn* resulted.
When the LUapalfn opened they came to the
.Merchants' Association of New-York to see If that
body could not aid them in carrying out th*-lr plans.
'\ They were told, properly, that the association was
not in politics and could not as an organization take
part in a poltical c;imDalßn. Several merchants,
however. In the <3ryjrood« district believed that the
work outlined by the youns men In charge of the
Acorns could be made effective for food povern
vnr-r.X. These m r--hants held a meeting and formed
a committee to r.iJ the Acorns.
The Jaffray I>uilding. at No. 2.V) Broadway, was

FEDERAL APPOINTMENTS.
When Senator Platt was asked yesterday re
garding the report that Governor Od-U had entered
a protest against the reappolntment of Collector
Bldwell the Senator said he did not believe the
Governor had taken any part whatsoever In the
matter of Federal appointments. At any rate, he
said he had not heard that the Governor had used
his influence either for or against Mr. Bldwell.
"What objections have been mentioned to Presi

NO INCREASE IN PRICES. BUT A SAVING IN EX
TENSES WILL ADD TO FROFIT?.
[BY TELEGRAPH TO THE TBJBISE-1
Chicago. Nov. 10.— combination of the plaster
manufacturing interests in the United States prac
tically was effected at a conference held by repre
sentatives of thirty-five of the largest houses in
the East. West and South here last night. The
capitalization of the new concern will be about
JIO.OOy.WKj, with headquarters in Chicago.
The firm of Jones & McCormlck, attorneys, of
New-York City, is promoting the consolidation.
Among the leading subscribers are English Broth
ers, with large plaster houses in Buffalo. Grand
Rnplds and Omaha. Other large Interests were
represented at the conference yesterday by S. F.
Paul and H. G. Fowler, of Blue Rapids. Kan. It
is understood that Chicago plaster houses were
unrepresented. Negotiations will continue for sev
eral weeks, looking toward the absorption of the
smaller plaster factories in different parts of the
country.
The primary cause of consolidation is said to be
the competition with the plaster houses of Nova
Scotia represented In New-York City. The latter
are enabled to underbid the native manufacturers
by reason of their utilization of by-products in the
production of terra eotta. dental plaster and cold
water paints. The American houses have hitherto
given little attention to these branches of the trade,
but. once the combination Is formed, they intend- to
adorn the practice of their foreign competitors.
"The leading adamant and plaster of paris manu
facturers of the United States." said Mr. Jones, of
th. linn of Jo::'s & McCormlck. last evening, "are
Interested in the scheme we are now promoting. It
is planned to take advantage of fuch a saving as
may result from chipping to the retail dealer from
the nearest market, the sale of by-products, and a
reduction In the number of travelling representa
tives. Freight Is a big item of expense at present,
because the native plaster houses are shipping their
products across each other's territory. The aim In
r» flu Ing expenses will, of course, be to increase the
income of the interests represented In the combina
tion, but there will be no increase in prices. We
•will lilSIWi upon the incr»-p.s<»d margin of profit to
make tb venture a paying one. There will be no
competition between native Interests. All part» of
the country were represented in the conference to
day. The combination will have Its headquarters
In "this city. There will be large branch houses in
Buffalo and St. Louis."
K^.V-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. MONDAY. NOVEMBER 11, 1901-
COL. PARTRIDGE'S RECORD.
SERVICES OF SUPERINTENDENT OF
PUBLIC WORKS. WHO MAY BE
POLICE COMMISSIONER--
Albany, Nov. 10 (Special).— Tne . Inclusion of the
name of Colonel John N. Partridge, of Brooklyn,
the State Superintendent of Public Works, In the
list of the m*n that Mayor-elect Low of New-York
may consider in selecting a Police Commissioner
has been noticed -with much interest by the State
officials here Colonel Partridge was appointed to
his present office by Governor Roosevelt on Jan
uary IG. 1899. and, as is well known. Governor
Roosevelt took particular pains in making his
choice of a man for this office. One of Governor
Roosevelt's reasons for this care probably was that
the Superintendent of Public Works might be con
sidered a member of the Governor's personal offi
cial force, since under the terms of the constitu
tion he holds his office only until the end of the
term of the Governor who appoints him.
Colonel Partridge, by virtue of his office, is also a
member of the Canal Board, the other members
being at present Lieutenant-Governor Woodruff.
Secretary of State McDonough. Controller Knight,
State Treasurer Jaeckel. Attorney General Davies
and State Engineer Bond. This board in a most
unobtrusive manner, without the slightest blare of
trumpets, has rendered a great service to the peo
ple of the State In the last three years. This service
was the settlement of the claims of the canal con
tractors, who were executing the $9,000,000 canal im
provement work. The claims and contracts
amounted to several millions, but Colonel Partridge
and other members of the Canal Board gained such
a knowledge of the justice of the claims of the con
tractors that several hundred thousand dollars only
has been paid, and thus a large^mount of money
has been saved the State. Moreover, the contractors
are satisfied that Justice has been done them.
Colonel Partridge's administration of the canals
has been thoroughly satisfactory to the State au
thorities and to the members c : ' the canal commit
tees of the two houses of the legislature. That fact
was shown conclusively when early in this year
Governor Odcll reappolnted him as Superintendent
of Public Works, and the nomination was unani
mously confirmed by the Senate. The Superintend
ent of Public Works has charge of the expenditure
of a largo amount of the State's money upon the
canals of the State. For the fiscal year ending Sep
tember 30, 1900. there was expended on maintenance
and ordinary repairs of the canals $1,014,510 33: in
collecting canal statistics. J23.20657; in new work
ana: repairing damages. J95T.&49 19. and in the ex
penses of a canal survey, $33,131 SS; • grand total of
52.116.79S 27.
The c.inals have riot only been kept in good con
dition, but. in th» judgment of many canal men,
:ire In a much better londition now than when
Colonel Partridge became the Superintendent of
Public Works.
Superintendent Partridge recommended as an in
centive to canal commerce that the act be repealed
which limited the capital of companies navigating
the canals to $50,000. it being suspected that canal
transportation companies, with largo capital, would
be organized if the law should be repealed. The
legislature of this year accordingly passed and
Governor Odell signed a bill authorizing the or
ganization of canal transportation companies, with
a capital ranging from (MM to $4,000,000.
Colonel Partridge also was a member of Governor
Roosevelt's Commit t^- on Canals, appointed in
March. ISS9. to con.<ai.l-r "the broad gut .«tlon of th*»
proper pulley th<- Htate of New-York should pursue
in canal matters." This committee had as Its
members General Francis V. Greene, of York:
ex-Mayor George E. Green, of Binghamton; Super
intendent Partridge. State Engineer Bond. John
M. Scatchrrd. of Buffalo; Prank s Wttheraee, of
Port Henry, and Major Thomas W. Syrnott.i. of
Buffalo. This committee reported that the cannls
connecting the Hudson River with Lakes Erie.
Ontario and Champlain. should not be abandoned.
but should be maintained and enlarged, and that
the project of a ship canal was a proper subject
for consideration by th«? Federal Government, but
not by the Btate of New-York. The committee
Ifli sllj recommended the construction of a
canal across the State along the tine chiefly of the
Erie Canal, of sufficient siae to carry boats is-.' feet
In length. 25 feet In width and 10 feet draught, with
a cargo capacity of approximately 1,000 tons each.
The estimated coat of thl* project was Ji>S.'S4.66s.
An acquaintance of Colonel Partridge said venter
.jay that on» of his merits as a Police Commis
sioner of Brooklyn was bis introduction of Civil Ser
vice examination th.-in In making promotions.
and that thus the men ot ability and good char
acter In the Police Department, without regard I*
their political opinions, secured advancement lo
higher grades In the police sex vice.
GETS HAVANA CONTRACT.
BID OF JERSKT CITY FIRM ACCEPTED BY
THE COUNCIL.
Havana. Nov. 10. — Th" Municipal Council of
Havana has decided by a vote of ten to eight to
accept the bid of 8. P. McGivnoy and K. T.
Rokcby, of Jersey City, which is (10.393.01599,
for the Havana sewering and paving contract.
Considerable fueling was manifested during the
session over the circulation of a pamphlet In
sinuating that th-? McGivney-Rokeby bid was
really the bid of the Engineers' Department.
The matter of letting out th.) contract has been
tho subject of. considerable discussion and of
some correspondence between Governor Central
Wood and the Municipal Council. On two occa
sions the council baa voted not to let the con
tract, as the specifications and bidding were
Irregular. Those voting in favor of accepting
the McGivney-Rokeby bid explain that they so
voted because they considered General Wood's
letter directing the acceptance of some one of
the bids a military order.
Michac-l J. Dadv arrived in Havana this morn
ing- He i.« etill hopeful of KKtinijf the contract.
The Democratic party has adopted General

passage of an ordinance requiring (separate seats

MINISTERS OX VICTORY.
THE ELECTION* DISPELLED THE DARK

CONGREGATIONS. '
Many ministers referred to the victory of Seth
Low and the fusion ticket in the.ir sermons yes

nations is mad" a little moother. One evil after
another, as here in New-York, is ground to
powder by the great Juggernaut of Christian
civilization. There is more of peace and right
eousness in this great metropolis than ever be
fore Since last Tuesday this old world has be
come better, and life here and elsewhere will be
worthier the living.
The Rev. Dr. WILLIAM 8. RAIXSFORD, St
George's Episcopal Church— believe that tli»
reform movement in New-York will succeed, be
cause it has a larger number of men involved In
it than it ever had before. And they are all
looking. Those who think that they can dis
charge their duty to God by looking after their
own fortunes without regard to others are not
imbued with religion.
The Rev. Dr. THOMAS R. SI.TCER. Church of All
Soulx— lt Is our first duty to eliminate from our
vocabulary the word "patrona "c." and appoint
to office only such men as are competent, men
tally and morally, to properly administer the
affairs of the city. We are like men who nave
recently com" into an unexpected Inheritance,
and we do not know whal to do with the newly
acquired wealth. We are rich In opportunities.
I>»t v" m:ike the most of them. Our first duty
18 to pursue a constructive policy, and one of
the most Important tiling- Is to furnish the
city with a water supply which will h«> adequate
to its needs. Every man who goes Into office on
January 1 does so at a persona] sacrifice, for
every man who Is fitted properly to discharge
the affairs of the city could, by reason of those
very faculties, command a higher price for hi*
service* In private life. Let us trust them and
hold up their bands, and the day will go well

PFOPLFTs INSTITUTE OPENS ITS SEASON,
DR. RCDOU'II GROSSMAN PRAISES PRESIDENT
ROOSEVELT.
Th» People's Institute of New- held the
first meeting of Its fifth season last night at Cooper
Union. Seth £prug-u«- Terry occupied the chair In
the absence of Charles Sprajcue Smith. Howard
Mansfield, one of the trustees, paid a tribute to
the memory of Peter Croper. Dr. Rudolph Gross
man, of the Rodoph 'lorn Synagogue, delivered
an address on "Brotherhood In part he said:
Religion Is man'? greatest blessing, and also hi*
great curse. Rightfully understood It teaches
us our duties to God. to Bell an.', fellow man. Mis
understood, it is bigotry, superstition, Ignorance
It Is because of the curse of bigotry thai to-day
five million Jews are being persecuted and have
been driven from place to i lace, God is tor all, :i"
matter what their religion. No man whose heart
Is right can be wrong. Two men may be right at
thr- same tlm«\ although looking at things from
different views. I honor th- 1 missionary when he
keeps in his .-,..•!• re but when he comes to my peo
ple, the Jew.-». with tho desire to change our be
lief, I consider it an insult to my manhood. It Is
an act of treason to your mother's teachings to
Change from those you heard at her knee. Be truit
to :>■:■■ teachings of, her theology. I never admired
our President so much as since he recently broke
bread with a negro. He thereby proves himself,
an American.
Carl A. Mead, secretary of the People's Institute
Club, gave a talk outlining the work for the com
ing season. Among those who will make addresses
are Charles Frederic Adams, Howard Mansfield,
I>r Rudolph Grossman, Carl A. Mead, Henry

C. F. V. FOR CHINESE EXCLVSIOy.
LABOR AGITATION FOR THE XX K.NA- TMKNT OF
THE LAV. NEXT MAY.
The American Federation of Labor, which has
started an agitation for the re-enactment of the
Chinese Kxcluaion law when it expires next May,
has sent out Herman Gudstadt as rm agenl to the
different labor bodies throughout tho country to
stir up sentiment in favor of the movement. Mr.
iJudstadt spoke on 'he subject to the Central Fed
orated Union yesterday.
"I believe," he said, "that organized labor has
fairly well determined that the Chinese must go.
When Dennis Kearney, the Sand Lot orator of the
Pacific Slope, tired his rhetorical guns at the Chi
nese, he builded better than he knew. They are
Htlll the menace to all classes of the community
that they were then. The Chinese Six Companies,
that mysterious organization .which controls the
Chinamen in this country, is as powerful as ever.
The Chinese highbinders In California have th.
same hold on the Chinese there that th.» ward
heelers used to have over voters in New-York."
Several delegates spoke In approval of tho senti
ment expressed by .Mr. Gudstadt. It was finally
decided to request Congress to re-enact the Chinese
Exclusion law. A motion was also carried instruct
ing th« Central Federated Union delegate' to tin
coining convention of tho American Federation of
Labor to vote in favor of the convention taking
action urging the re-enactment oi the law.
TESTING PROFESSOR KOCH'S THEORY.
A young woman was inoculated on Saturday last
With virus fiom a COW suffering from tuberculosis
by Dr. George D. Barney, of No. 401 Thlrd-st..
Brooklyn. The solution of bovine tubercle bacilli
was 5 Injected on each side of the woman's neck Just
above the clavicle, the quantity of the injection be
ing about one and on. -half drams. The woman
was Miss Emma H. King, of Brooklyn. She offered
to submit to this experiment, it was said, in order
iv>-,t the medical profession might know whether or
not Professor Koch's theory that bovine tubercle
bacilli cannot infect human beings was correct. The
cow from which the virus was taken was inocu
lated with virus of a consumptive person some time
ago by Or. Barney. Dr. Barney said yesterday he
was also anxious to prove, that persona suffering
from consumption In: its early stages can he cured
hv the inhalation of a compound of the phenol
croup Should Miss King be stricken with con
sumption as a result hi the experiment she will
undergo the Inhalation treatment.
