Various devices for raising money tor the estab

were discussed at a meeting of the ice water foun
tain committee of Ike Woman's Municipal League,
kaM at the home of Miss Katharine B. Day. No.
% Fifth-aye... yesterday. Letters had been sent to
all the settlements and various organisations asking
If the paj needed annually for the running expenses
of a fountain could be paid by the society provided
one were placed by the tosgue on Its territory. In
response Mr Hunter, hei^ Qptker of the Ur.l
ver<=li> Settlement: the Be*. It. Oreer. of St.
Bartholomew's Church: the Rev. Dr. Balnsford. of
,--i George's Church, and the Paulist Fathers, in
West Sixticth-st.. all believed that the organiza
tions represented by them would welcome such an
addition to their equipment, and would become re
aponsih'.e for the Ice and incidental expenses.
Mrs Mary Slmkhoviu-h, of the Friendly Aid
Bowse, suggested that public subscriptions be asked
for in th« effort to relieve the need of city bound
people of the tenement houses through the summer.
She thought it more than possible that many men's
Slobs would each eladly raise the $175 needed to
establish a fountain, and that in this way destitute
«j«tricts might receive relief. She also mentioned
out of town Sunday schools as possible aids in the
Ml^s Mildred atintnrn, secretary «i the commit
fe read a letter from a workingman who urged
the need of free Ice water to take the place of
liquors and so-called "soda water." with which the
people now are obliged to relieve their thirst and
tor which they spend their scanty funds. She em
phasized the groat necessity for such advantage-.
Not only ... ,i.y. children of the streets and
teamsters avail themselves of those now in ex

with a supply for the day and evening. The parched

heard the objection made that lot water is un
healthful and that the poor are better without It.
To such criticisms she replied that there is no
dancer of the water being too cold; that. with
the constant drawing of the people, it Is, at best.
3M3 M > i« : s" Margaret L. Chanler thought that one
fountain, with its one little faucet, is not too much
to ask for every one of the • reive thousand saloons
each with its many faucets In this city. She charged

Great was the jubilation at the meeting of the
City Legislative league held yesterday at the
Tuxedo, for it has justified its title by actually in
fluencing legislative action. The Colby bill, which
was signed by Governor Odell on the previous day.
xvas the dire.-; result of the league's work, and by
It for the nrst time a married woman in this
State becomes entitled to her own earnings.
Mr*. I_i!lie Devertux Blake, the president, re
lated how a year ago a woman who sued the
Metropojitan Street Hallway Company for loss of
wages through Injuries received was defeated on
the ground that, as she wan married, only her
husband could recover her wages.
Tie league 1 president was naturally Incensed
by this revelation of the fad that in the eyes of
tha lav a wife wan the property of her beKoaad.
fihe therefore had a. Mil prepared and persuaded
Assemblyman Colby to introduce It. Its passage
therefore gave- peculiar satisfaction so that the
discussion of "TheCat=e. of Mrs Maybrlck" was
almost lost fight of.
Th« paper of the day ma read by Mrs. Lillie
T. P. Bronk. who reviewed Mrs. Maybrielfs case
from Its earliest to its lan st phases. * The league
voted to prepare a memorial to King fc.owara
asking him to pardon her.
t»v bacaer of the Business Women's dub. held
yesterday at the clubrooms. at No. 108 Fulton-st..
was .-> novelty in the busmen section that attract
ed much attention from th. men.
The doors had hardly been opened, which oc
curred at 4 o'clock, when groups of young men be
gan to enter looking around In a surprised way
a* they saw the exceedingly pretty scene.
The tasteful rooms were profusely decorated with
white and pink crepe paper, arranged In festoons,
draperies and flowers. The flower table, directly
opposite the door, was exquisitely arranged, and
made one of the most attractive features. It was
in charge of Mi. c Grace A. Ncal.
On the fancy goods table were many beautiful
and useful articles, most of which were made by
the members in their leisure moments. Among
them were sofa pillowp, handkerchief cases, glove
cachets and countless dainty trifles. Miss Elolse
Fitch was chairman, and was assisted by the
Misses F. H. Lazare. M.,Cronyrt and Dorothy Dag
A pretty picture was presented by the candy
table, with its array of delicious homemade con
fections in pretty boxen, that were also homemade.
Miss Gladys Taylor was chairman.
A great deal of fun was occasioned by the target
and alrgun. The pink circle was marked off in
sections, and a basketful of prizes was prepared
for each section. It was noticeable that the young
women who tried their skill as "•marksmen"
struck the target oftener than the men. This feat
ure was In care of Miss Kathryn Williamson, as
sisted by the Misses Adelc Ahrens, Louise Bailey
and Mabel Uoyd.
The palmistry tent was not vacant for a moment
after Miss IJroughton took possession. Every one
who t«st«'o her powers told every one else that
"she is a -....rider:" and the revenue derived by
the club was corerEpondingiy large.
Mlfs L. V. . Law. president of the club, and Miss
C. Cora Swift were everywhere at all times, ex
ercising a general supervision.
Llpht refreshments were served at small tables.
and lemonade was dispensed by the Misses Kath
arine Howard and Henrietta Kettner.
Miss Law announced that Evart Jansen Wen
dell and Jacob Wendell, jr.. are again going to ar
range an amnteur theatrical performance for the
benefit of the club, such as they gave so success
fully last y.-ar. The entertainment will be given
on April 28" at the Berkeley Lyceum
In the "Open Arena" column of the March '•Club
woman" the following note appeared: "If any one
knows of any place In clubdom where colored
women are admitted, either singly or in groups,
and made happy, the writer would bo grateful for
t l ie information."
An answer is published In the current number of
"The Clubwoman," a part of which Is as follows:
In answer to this request we call your attention
to the Soclai Economics Club of Chicago, which
has practically an open door membership. One
dollar and the recommendation of we member ad
mit another. We hold no social meetings in homes.
At our regular meetings the topic is introduced In
one or more short papers by "experts." No ency
clopaedia or textbook papers are entertained; no
race or sex line Is drawn In selection of speakers.
We are. thus a public club studying public ques
tions. Six members of the one hundred are of the
African race. We have members who would rather
It would not be so; they are In the minority and
stay with as because no other club offers them
this special opportunity for fr**e and untrammelled
discussion of live topics. The majority of our
members arc members of other clubs, and say.
"Why' We could not take up these subjects in
our home clubs In this way and compare different
Ideas so freely; but we like it and learn so much.
We learn to think and have, better Judgment for
action." Some of the best women of our conserva
tive clubs are with us.
The letter further stales that Ihe Social Eco
nomics Club resolved unanimously at the March
meeting that it would not indorse the insertion

The death of Junius H. Browne, which occurred
on Wednesday after a lingering Illness, at his
home in this city, recalls a dramatic episode of the
Civl! War in which he was one of the prominent
figures. It was his fate to stand as a representa
tive ?nd martyr of the army newspaper corre
spondent?, and also as» a hostage on behalf of his
country- in a war prison.
Mr. Browne was just entering his career as a
journalist in Cincinnati when the anti-slavery
agitation became aou », and he ardently espoused
the side of free labor. Such was the excitement In
the West at tbc tiring upon the national emblem
at Sunitcr that the war frenzy seized all classes.
T'nable to carry a musket, for he was of slight
build and delicate, he was easily persuaded to ac
company the troops 'o the field and report their
doings and sufferings to his home paper. The Trib
une was soon added to his list. After ho
had followed Fremont's army across- Missouri and
back, the opening of the Mississippi under Admiral
Foote and 'len'-rals Grant and Sherman cave him
a new field of labor. After DonHson. Shiloh and
Memphis had been fought the : -ieg«» of VLkshurg
succeeded. Mr. Browne, with several other cnl
leagues and belated officers, undertook to rejoin the
main army by a sho,-f cut down the Mississippi.
A fleet of armored gunboats had passed down a
few days hefore to protect the crossing of th*«
army, hut the night had hrrn stormy, and the
garrison unprepared.
About May j. 1882, the little expedition started
with Jihnut one hundred officers and men. in charcc
of two barges of provisions. The Confederates
were on the alert, and the moonlight was unfavor
ahle for secrecy. Buildings were set afre on both
shores to give a better illumination, and for an
hour and a half the little expedition became r. plain
target for both heavy ordnance and musketry. The
barges took tire, the tug exploded and about half
of the detachment were killed or wound* d. Those
able to do so threw over hay bales and took to
swimming for dear life. The enemy, however,
came out in boats, and at the point of the bayonet
all were made prisoners and taken to the jail in
the beleaguered fortress.
The authorities at Richmond were especially
pleased at the capture of two Tribune corre
spondents (Albert I). Richardson being of thr
party) and another from "The World." and ordered
that they he Bent to l.ihhy Prison, in th'- hope of
a desired exchange for some well known Southern
civilians then in Northern prisons. It is usually
optional for a commanding general to detain privi
leged non-combatanta or to release them on parole,
but In this case superior orders forbade a release.
It happened thai about the time of their arrival
in Richmond the business of tfxi hanging prisoners
of war was drifting into an acrimonious and stun
born dispute. Secretary Stanton and General Butler
on the one side ;md Secretary Seddon and Colonel
Quid on the other side contriving to suspend al!
exchanges and entail great suffering and mortality
on the prisoners, for which each sid.- laid the blame
on the other. President Lincoln gave his personal
attention to an offer brought for an exchange of two
Virginians caught running the blockade for Kieh
ardson and Browne, hut t)\.- time waa unpropitious;
the advance of I.cc to the upper Potomac, on the
one hand, an i the Investment ol Vlcksburg delayed
it Then the Inmates of Übby began to di^ tun
nels out to liberty, and the officers were removed
far Inland to Salisbury. N. C. Not until twenty
months ait«r their capture, during which they en
dured privations and abuse enough to have driven
U-ss stout hearts to feebleness. Insanity or de.ith.
did they r<M,-;iia their fr*«-d,)m. and then not through
the favor of the exchange officers, but by escaping
a,nd making a journey „f two hundred miles across
snowy mountains, HI clad and chiefly at niKht.
Richardson and Browne finally arrived al Knox
ville. Term . the former to find his young w-if>
dead and his children committed to the car.- of
strangers. The close of the war soon after led
1 oth to book and newspaper writing as a profes
sion. Browne contributed to several leading peri
odicals on a variety of topics. Sine,- the .j.-ath of
his wir» three yeara aso be had taken little int. rest
in 1.-tters. art or science. Three sons survive him.
• orporatlon Counsel Rives yesterday sustained
the contention of Controller Grout, by saying that
the Hoard of Aldermen and the Board of Estimate
and Apportionment had absolute control of city
salaries, with the cxc. ptlon Of those paid day
laborers and those paid by the Board of Educa
"The Charter Revision Commission made this
salary fixing question the subject of a special
message to the legislature." said Mr. Rives. "It
was thought the proper thing to give the Board of
Estimate and the Board of Aldermen power to fix
salaries. The language of Section M is plain -so
plain that 1 am surprised that at this late day its
int. Nt should have been discovered. All salaries
paid out of th>- city treasury are now in the
control of the two boards ! have named •\, , ;.t
the pay of das laborers and the salaries paid by
the Board of Education."
It was suggested yesterday that the Board of
Estimate and Apportionment and the alderman
would before long give their attention to tne .-al
ariea paid to the justices of the Supreme Court
In the Ist and 111 department?. Under the State
law Justices receive 17.000, but in this county $I<><V*>
a year Is added, so that a city justice gets more
than double that paid to his colleague no the
"I do not mean to s.iy." said Controller Groul
yesterday. that it la the intention of the adminis
tration to reduce the salaries paid the police the
firemen and the street cleaners, but we have th*
power to d> so."
The wage schedule under which 'he firemen
of the Eric llailrord have worked for many
years past IS being revised at a series of con
ferences between officials of the road and a del
egation of the men.
At the iifflci> of the company it wa said yes
terday that concessions bad been made to the
men which would materially im reasc their pay.
The representatives <>r" the firemen ,i the be
ginning of the conferences submitted ;i num
ber of demands, and a week has been con
sumed In discussing an<; disposing of them. Th
exact amount of the Increase in wag s has not
been determined, it waa said thai the new
schedule would supersede one « hich had been in
effect practically without change since 1887.

Dr. W. L. Munro. of Providence. It. I. dis
tussing \esterday the question of how the pr. >i>
len of meat supply for the poor could best ka
solved, said:
I agree that Americans do not cat enough vege
tables and eat too much meat. If vegetables were
cooked more, that would be a great advance. Po
tatoes are very nutritive, but the way many people
prepare them much of the nourishment is lost. The
best experiments regarding the comparative values
of food have been made by the army departments
i if different countries. A larse number of men
brought toother and subjected to equal exercise
rind given the same quantity and quality of food
makes possible experiments which are pretty safe
guide posts. Our arnr.y consumes more meat than
Continental armies; our mm average much larger
than the French, for instance. Does this prove
that beef eating makes bigger and more powerful
men? . ■ ,
What men should eat depends largely on their
way of living. An ordinary laborer who spends
much of his day in the streets or fields could not
well gel :!.ins without meal at least once a day.
M«at is needed for th~ tissues and Mood. The aver
age man would be better oil if he ate meat once a
day. i think it a mistake for those who retire early
to sit down to their principal meat of teal in the
evening. The working man should have his dinner
.-if noon- if he could not have meat then, a bowl of
hoi porridge would be a good thing. I firmly be
lieve In th** virtues of a hot meal in the middle of
the day.
Nearly every one would be better off with a sim
ple breakfast of fruit, cereals and possibly two
eggs Americana eat too much food: they eat more
than they need. Vegetables and cereals are cheap
and easy to digest. Many people spurn them be

Dr. W. Gilrnan Thompson, an authority on
dietetics, compares th-- nutritive Takes of ani
mal and vegetable foods as follows:
Errors in diet are far more common on iktlMl
of excessive meat eating than the eating of too
much vegetable food. The estimate commonly
given that meat should occupy one-fourth an.»
vegetable three-fourths of a mixed diet. 1? over
stepped by many persons with whom the propor
tions may be two to four. Meat seem? to satisfy
the cravings of hunger more than refutable food
f-ethfhv says that the best proportions for the
common' of the animal system are about
nine of fat. twenty-two of flesh forming substances
and sixty-nine of starch and sugar. A mixed diet
is the only rational one.
Speaking; of vegetarianism. Dr. Thompson
In regard to an exclusive or almost exclusive
vegetable diet for man. th" universal experience
baa been th;it while it may k~ep him in apparent
health for some tlm-. it eventually results in a
loss of strength and general r^si>tinsr power against
disease, whi<-h btcesaea evid-nt after some months,
if not before.
It is impossible to subsist for any length of time
on a diet which does not contain a considerable
quantity of nitrogen. A purely vegetable diet
gradually Induces a condition of muscular weak
ness anil languor, with disim-liti iti.>n lor ctUWI
physical or mental work.
Following is an approximately cancel tabte of
food values. It shows the nutritive properties
of the common food products:

Dr. Milo K. Maltbie. Joint M. Oitterman and Ed
ward Hasaman Hall appeared yesterday before the
Aldermanic Committee on BuCdfaaja to support the
ordinance restricting the doings or the sign and
bill board people. Alderman Franklin B. Wan pre
sided at the hearing.
••The Municipal Art Society do a not oppose legiti
mate advertising." ,id Mr. Maltbie. "It is our
purpose merely to i>rohibit the evils attendant or.
it. We want to limit the height of billboards on
the ground to ten feet, and those on the tops of
LuiidJnga to five feet. As a matter or fact, the sky
signs should be done away with entirely, but we
are aware of the opposition that we would meet In
trying to have them abolished. The sky sign
boards as now built are a menace to the safety of
people on the streets, as the winds frequently blow
them down. Those made of wood are dangerous as
regards tire. Built on the ground, they afford
places where nuisances frequently are committed.
We also object to them on lesthettc grounds. The
proprietors seem to try to get on their bills the
most incongruous colors. For Instance, there will
be a brilliant red. yellow and green, all on one
sheet. You cannot escape such a bill. I tried this
morning to get out ol sight of a comparatively
small one. and I saw it for ten blocks. You can
refuse to read a newspaper carrying an obnoxious
sign, but you can't escape some of the monstrosi
ties on the city billboards." Mr. Maltbie then re
ferred to efforts making in Rochester. Buflalo and
Chicago for the regulation of sisn^. and «aid that
London had decided to have no new sky signs.
Edward Hagaman Hall, representing the Ameri
can Scenic and Historic Preservation Society,
wanted sky signs abolished altogether. He said If
they were done away with advertisers would spend
Just as much money and reach Just as many people,
and would spend it along more artistic line-.
A. 3. Gilbert representing the bill posting fra
ternity, said that those who favored doing away
with sky signs and restricting billboard advertising
seemed .to forget that people owning property had
certain Irrevocable rights. He said the bill poster?
wanted a regulation specifying the height and
length ■>;" signboards, so thai they would know just
What they wt. entitled to when they went to
Superintendent Stewart of th« Buildings Depart
ment for permit*.
Thomas McGlll. secretary of th» Buildings Depart
ment, «aW that Superintendent Stewart is in favor
of restriction, and thought «ky signs could bj done
away with altogether. "The lower and smalU-r you
cet the signs the better." said Mr. MeGIU. John M.
Gitterman spoke briefly opposing signs in general.
On the anniversary of their first meeting, Albert
\'-i ;•-..!:. purser of the White Star steamship Ma
jestic, which arrived here yesterday from Liver

married at the bride's home last night. Mis 3 Kane

and met Mr. Brandt. She enjoyed the trip so
much thai she decided to return by the aaaai
steamer. On ibis trip Mr. Brandt and Miss Kane
became engaged. From that time on Miss Kant
made It a practice to meet th» Majestic whenever
she came In.
The couple will sp<*nd th»ir honeymoon In Wash

Wednesday. A silver loving cup from the officers

AIR CUSHION company charged with
trying to rime* monopoly
W. E. D. Stokes and J. I. Straus yesterday, at the
City Hall, chanted the Ellithorpe Air Cushion
Company with attempting to secure the adoption
of an ordinance that would give the Otis Elevator
Company a monopoly of elevator building in this
city, and at the sam- time subject elevator owners
to an aggregated unnecessary expense of millions
1 of dollars. John 1. Baker, of the Kllithorpe com
i pany, who was put in an unfavorable light by the
charges of Messrs. Stokes and Straus, indig.ia.ltly
denied that he had said or done anything that
cjuld be interpreted by either cl th* men as coer
cion or as savoring of collusion with corrupt Influ
ences in aM of the ordinance.
The ordinance was one Introduced by Alderman
I Tebbetts. of Brooklyn, requiring alt elev.u-irs to be
i equipped with an air eaeliloa not less than ten feet

"Thai jrentleman over tin' said Mr. f ■■**•»"
pointing to Mr. Baker, ■.vert lo Mr. Straus her

said Mr. Stokes. " 'You'd better sft in. This ordi
nance requiring air cushions on ever? elevator is
going to be put through, and you'll have m adopt
them. It is going to b- forced through the hoard.
"That is not so!" exclaimed Mr. Baker, springing
! to his feet.
"And as soon as the Otis people saw my elevators
I they went to work and paid $3.0Ct>.000 Tor the com
' pany's right." continued Mr. Stokes.
J. I. Straus then got trie floor, and «ali: "Mr.
I Baker is technically right in denying that he told
me that the ordinance was going to be forced
through the Board of Aldermen. Mr. Stokes Is cor
rect, "however, in th» Idea that he conveys. Mr.
Baker, after being told by me that we were not
going to put in the air cushions, said. 'Well, you'll
put them in before we ar» through with the work.
Mr Baker then explained just what he had said
to Mr Straus. H. L. Brann opposed the ordinance.
! So did Reginald Pelham Button, who does nothing
else professionally, but inspect elevators. Ha was
followed by Mr. Shellabirger. who opposed the
ordinance. They were followed by Mr. Bedell, fa

morning he was. arraigned before Magistrate
Crane in the Harlem Court, but the case was
adjourned so that the new law- might be ap
plied to the case.
When Mr. Cooper was again arraigned Magis
trate Mott had taken Magistrate Crane's place.
Mr Co>%'r said that his machine, a new one.
got a war from his control. Mr. Cooper was not
satisfied' when Magistrate Mott imposed the
ilne. and wanted the case gone Into further. He
waited, and after other cases had been disposed
of he asked th- magistrate to .reconsider his de
cision. His request was refused. Magistrate Mott
sayins that he had no business to venture on
the streets with an automobile that was not
reliable. Mr Cooper said he would appeal.
Speaking of the exportation of locomotives abroad
an officer of one locomotive building company said
yesterday, after reading the London dispatch re
garding Lord Cromer's report concerning the saw
of foreign built locomotives in Egypt, that the
demand for locomotives was so great in this country
that his company could not do much in the foreign
Comparisons of cost of operating, he said, were
not always to he relied upon as determining the
superiority or a certain machine, as they might
have been made between locomotives buiit to haul
trains of very different weights. Naturally, the
engine intended for a heavy train, such as are used
in this country under a small load, would cost more
to operate a ton mile than one built for a light
load. It I* undoubted!* true, he said, that the
United States could deliver locomotives Quicker
than could England.
He was of the opinion that foreigners when they
needed additional power in a hurry would suddenly
overcome their prejudice in favor >:' English built
machines and come to the United States for them.
A railroad could almost earn the cost of the loco
motive in the time that would elapse between the
delivery of an American and an Enscliah built loco
rrotive. he said.

Judge I^icombe yesterday handed down a de
cision awarding the American Sugar Refining Com
pany a judgment against Coll or Bidwell for
SsMalß. with infer, st from October 27. 1900. This
sum was paid on that date for duties on ra^
sugar from the new Insular possessions, and under
the recent ' decision of the United States Supreme"
Court the exacting of the duty was illegal.
This is one of owr a aswan actions begun by
the American Sugar Refining Company to recover
duties paid on raw sugars Imported from the
Philippine?. Judgmtr't has been rendered by de
fault in probably rive-sixths of the cases. Th«
amount involved in some of them, and on which
judgment has been allowed and paid, was hun
dreds of thousands of dollars. In the majority of
cases the duties are refunded by the Treasury De
partment on application, but no Interest is allowed.
Suit is brought, therefore, to recover the interest,
■which In the case of the American Sugar Refining
Company amounts to many thousands of dollars.
