MAY FIX FUTURE SALARIES
BaWCT HOLDS THAT CHARTER GIVES
ADMINISTRATION SWEEPING TOWER.
Controller Grout astonish*^ his associates at
the meeting of the Board of Estimate and Ap
portionment yesterday by declaring that the
amended charter Fupers^d«d the statutes fixing
city salaries, and that under the law to-day the
Board of Estimate and the aldermen could fix
the salaries of the successors of the present city
officials
Mr. St««j was asked if the salaries of the
schoolteachers, police, firemen and street sweep
ers could ho so changed, and he said that Sec
tion r^s of tb" charter provided that all salaries
paid with the city's money could be ■*" ■««*■
A clerk representing the Supreme Court made
the remark, in explaining Th requisition for
the courts, that the salaries of the clerks •««
all fixed by statute. Mr. Grout interrupted him.
saying:
-The amended charter supersedes salaries
fixed by statute. "
"I thjnk you are wrong." said President Cm
i-idy of Queens.
•'I'm sate I am not," replied the Controller.
• ■We can't change your salary or that of the
Mayor, hut the Board of Estimate and the Board
of Aldermen can fix the salaries of your suc
reswors."
The Mayor looked incredulous, but Mr. Grout
insisted that he was right.
""What would happen." Mr. Grout asked Sher
iff O'Brien, 'if the board should reduce the ap
propriation of your office 10 per cent?"
"1 hope you won't." the Sheriff replied. "But
if you do you must be responsible for the work
ing of the office. I can't run it properly for less
money than I have asked for."
"Sheriff of Kings County," called Mayor Low,
"is he all here?"
The reference to the muddled condition in
Kings County provoked a laugh. Neither Mr.
CJuden nor Colonel Dike appeared. Each has
asked the same amount Bar the office — $145,000.
The board yesterday took up the budgets of
the Supreme. City. Surrogate's. Municipal. Ses
sions, and City Magistrates' courts, and the
offices of the commis-sioners of jurors, the .«ti»!--
Ifty and the registers.
"PINAFORE" GIVEN PY BOYS.
INTERESTING PERFORMANXE OF GILBERT
AND STTLLI VAN'S MASTERPIECE— EVEN
THE SCENERY HOMEMADE.
An interesting performance of Gilbert and Sulli
van'? comic apera *'H. M. S. Pinafore.'' played en
tirely by small boys, whs repented last night to
over a thousand children in the auditorium of the
Boys* Club Building, IVntrt-st. and Avenue A. The
caaracters. Including "sisters and cousins and
Runts, sailors and marines." were all taken by the
boys, some of whom were tin' more than eight
years old. The distinguishing feature from other
productions of this kind was that tan opera, lasting
over two hours, was given without any ahridement.
Scenery, costumes and other accessories were all
homemade, the children of the club having borne
their share in their manufacture. The play was
coached and starred by Francis H. Tabor, the.
nuperintendent of the Boys' '"iu'r>. and was exceei
tncly interesuns and unique throughout.
Considerable stir wan created when little Fred
erick Sulky, the youngster who took the part of
Pir Joseph Porter, Admiral of the Queen's Xavy,
appeared, wearing: the same hat that was worn by
Admiral Farragut durinp the Civil 'War. and the
audience got up and cheered wildly. This hat was
loaned for the occasion by Ixiyali Farraeut. son of
the famous naval commander, who is one of the
directors of the club.
Last nlpht's performance was the. first of a num
ber to be given by the club to its members, friends
«nd hoard of directors. Another production •will be.
?iven in the auditorium this evening, and a third
Rill take place Friday night, afaui a large number
3f prominent men are expected
The Boys' dub is the oldest institution for boys
In this country. It was organized in BSX by a few
public spirited citizens who bad the interests of
.:h - poor boys at hear' and who were anxious to
lave them off the streets. Until recently, the club's
quarters were in an old building at No. 125 St.
bark's Place, but the j--realer demands made for
room to conduct its work made necessary the
•rection of a five story builoing of its own at No.
.161 .Avenue A. The work carried on is so varied
tnat to cite a list of the associated clubs, both
lunior and senior, would Rive but a meagre idea of
ts activities. The club embraces Individual Fo.-ie
lies for cbeas. checkers. Ji.'tion. dramatic and de
sating, literature, law and order, printing, athletics
and travelling.
-Among the board of trustees are E. H. Harri

Mr. Hendrtdeson. who is csateting the Prosecu

would charge the jury. But instead Mr. Hen

and Judge (iarrison will not charge the jury un
til to-morrow mornine
Mrs. Haines appeared to be In better shape
to-day than yesterday, but while the color had
come back into her face she did not have the
confident manner that she did earlier in the
trial.
Mr Budd. continuing his address this morn
ing, devoted almost an hour to the testimony
of Nellie Rnhards. Mrs. Palfrey's testimony
was also assailed. The rest of the address was
tak.n up with Mrs. Raines's testimony. It is
said that Mr. Budd's plea for his client changed
the plans of the State. Mr. Hendrickson was
to have made ■ short final address, but instead
of his finishing bj the midday recess he had
hardly be KU n. Like Prosecutor Atkinson, he
gave the history of the child's death, and many
women left the courtroom, unable to stand the
strain of heatinjr the tale a second time.

DEMOCRATIC CONTROL BROKEN.
LIQUOR DEALERS DECIDE TO HEM' MAYOR
FAG AN IN EXCISE REFORMS.
The control of the Democratic ring over the
saloons in Jersey City seems to be broken. A few
months ago a license was refused to a. saloonkeeper
because he was an active Republican. Mayor Fagan

traffic declared that he would check political Inter
ference by appointing a non-partisan Excise Board.
He pointer! a board of four members, two of
each political faith, and gave the liquor sellers a
representative in one of the Democratic members.

licenses to disreputable persons has met with the
indorsement of the Liquor Dealers' Association and

pointed a committee to attend the meetings of the

THE DAY'S OPERATIONS IN STOCKS.
The stork market was strong in th«» greater
part of the day, without, however, noteworthy
improvement in the volume of business., Com
mission houses were Inactive. There was prac
tically no outside demand for securities, the,
chW part of the day's business coming: from ;
the so-called professional element, and fn a few
cases from interests that are connected with
various railway and industrial properties. The
more important advances were made by the
"specialties" and by a few of the high grade
investment issues. The Hocking Valley shares
enjoyed conspicuous advances, the common
gaining nearly 4 points, while the preferred
closed 2% points above Tuesday's last quota
tion. Dealings in these shares were not heavy,
hut the scarcity of the stock, both common and
preferred, caused a marked upward movement
on the slightest demand. In the Industrial
issues there was a large volume of transac
tions In the United States Leather shares at
advancing price?. The movement in these stocks
was based on reports that arrangements had
been made to retire the preferred stock and to
make a settlement of the accumulated divi
dends.
The United States Steel securities were not af
fected by the favorable report of the company*
operations In the last year, while the general
list of investment shares in both the industrial
and railway departments was not materiallj
Influenced by developments affecting actua
worth. Colorado Fuel was active at a sligh
decline. Elsewhere in the industrial list move
ments were not important, except In American
Car and Foundry shares, which declined undei
selling pressure induced by the company's sligh
failing off in earnings in the quarter end*
February 28. The company's business has noi
been reduced, but us Inability to secure ma
terials In February naturally caused a :

in the position of industrial companies of tin

basis and m.- prospects for further expat
in all lines In the r eM of the year an i i
ered excellent. The same may be said of thr
ra'iroad companies, especially the large systems
operating in the South and West Railwa:
earnings promise to increase throughout thr
year.
The money market was quiet, with no Impoi
tant change in rates or general conditions. A
trifle easier tendency was reported, but in only .
few cases call loans were made under t pel
cent. Rumors were current of gfld expori
this week, despite the fact that the exchanj?<
market presented no encouragement for shir
ments at existing rates. A small advance
exchange market quotations' will, bowevei
make sold exports profitable. So far th's wee*
the banks have lost a considerable amount
money on Sun-Treasury operations, and it is noi
likely that this week's bank statement

amount to upward of $3,000,000. but this amoun

that the market will be eass enough to meet
the demands of all legitimate borrowers. Includ
