Postmaster Roberts Refuses Credit to Mu nicipal Officials. The various municipal and borough officials in Brooklyn will hereafter have to pay cash for their stamps or postal cards cr go without. For some time past Postmaster Roberts has been in the habit of accommodating the heads of departments by furnishing them postal supplies on credit, being reimbursed at the end of the menth by Controller Grout, after the latter had received the proper vouchers from the officials using the stamps. As the rules of the Postoffic* Department forbid the sale of stamps except on a strictly cash basis, the postmaster has had to make his granting of credit a personal matter; that is. he would advance the cash himself, being reimbursed personally by the Controller. This had been going on so long that some of trie departments got the idea that this accommodation was a right, rather than a favor. Sometimes they would neglect to send in their stamp vouchers to the Controller on the proper day. and Postmaster Roberts had to wait for his money for sixty days and even longer. Increasing advantage was taken of his kindness, until it became necessary forhta »A nrivnnre from bis own pocket from Jl.ow to jl.uw a mom " for stTmps used in Brooklyn deportments.

JUNE 10. 100.?. URGE CASAL ISC R EASE. Enlargement 'Advocates Make Reply to Opposing Senators. The reply by canal Improvement advocates of this State to the recent antl-can/\l statement given out by a number of State Senators who oppose th» proposed 1.000-ton barge canal was made publlo here yesterday. It la signed by George Clinton, J. W. Fisher and EL R. Hefford. of Buffalo; Henry B. Herbert, E.. L. Boae. Gustav H. Schwab and Frank Brainard, of Xew-York; F. S. Witherbee. of Port Henry, and Frederick O. Clark, of Oswego. Por tions of the reply are the following: One of the most common statements made by the enemies of the canals is that the demand lor the Improvement of the canals can be traced to certain terminal, dock and elevator Interests in the cities of New-York and Buffalo. The facts are that while perhaps not the sole owners, the rail roads centring at Buffalo and New-York prac tically control the terminal, elevator, dock and lighterage interests of those ports, and certainly they would not be likely to be clamoring- for canal Improvement. The opposition leave out of sight the fact that there is not a sipgle commercial or ganization in the cities of Xew-York and Buffalo that does not demand th« enlargement and im provement of the Erie Canal as provided for under the 1,000-ton barge canal plan, and the turtner fact that the preponderating business interests or both cities emphatically agree in urging the adop tion of the proposed plan 'or the improvement or the waterways of the Stat». Tho statement Is sometimes made that tnera 13 no condition or emergency in tho development or the great commercial centres of New-York ana Buffalo which would justify the Incurring by the State of an Indebtedness for tho construction of the 1.000-ton barge canal. . . - Admitting that the cities of New- York and Buffalo have developed and prospered under the construction and operation of the Erie Canal, which was a most efficient transportation route until within the last thirty years, the fact yet remains that the former com merce of the city of New-York has not only Bhown a relative decrease as compared with com peting cities of this country during the last twenty years, but has actually fallen off In export as well a? in import trade in the last few years. . . . Testimony goes to show conclusively that the commerce of the State of New-York is now at the mercy and under the control of the rail road combinations, which, through discrimination, divert traffic to other ports and to other States as may best suit their convenience or their business interest; that the Erie Canal is at the present time In a nearly useless condition, in which it cannot furnish the service required to compete with the railroads and exercise its former vocation of a regulator of transportation rates, whereas the roads have steadily and enormously increased their efficiency. The Erie Canal to-day. In its neglected condi tion, carries a largrr quantity of local freight. I. c.. between points within the State, than foreign goods, and the same proportion will obtain in the improved canal, besides which, the possibilities of industrial development along the line of the canal through tho saving In water transportation of coal. Iron ore and other raw materials are un limited. Certainly this possible development of the In dustries of the Interior of the State justifies tho assertion thnt the proposed development of the Krie Canal is expected to and will redound to the benefit of not only New- York and Buffalo, but practically the entire State, from the lakes to the sea.

Divorce Question Considered — Anti- Smoot Resolution. [BT TELBGBArH TO THE TltlßCXl!.] Asbury Park. June 9.— "Higher critics" and edu- I cators who are disseminating and teaching doc- ] trines contrary to the Bible, were adversely critl cised to-day in the General Synod of the Reformed Church in America by the Rev. Dr. David Jamea Burrell, pastor of the Marble Collegiate Church, New-York City, who is one of the delegates. The retake came from Dr. Burrell after the board of education, through Secretary John G. Gebhard. had made an earnest plea for more young men to enter tha ministry and more money to educate them when | they enter the theological seminary. Dr. Burrell de clared that the fear of future poverty did not deter young men from entering the ministry, as had been suggested, but it was because they did not believe the truths they were required to preach. This con dition, he declared, was due to the false teachings of some of the educators in theological seminaries. Dr. Burrell later fathered a resolution, which was adopted, favoring the exijulsion of Reed Smoot, of Utah, from the United States Senate, and asking Congress to submit to the people an amendment to the Constitution prohibiting polygamy and poly gamous practices. William H. Jackson was re-elected president of the board of direction of the General ?Jinod and Frank R. Van Nest was again chosen a. member. Frederick Frclinghuysen was reappnmted a mem ber of the board. This organization, through its .'■ecretarv, reported that the church had recently received" a legacy which will amount to nearly Asbury Park. Rochester, St. Louis and Grand Rapids invited the Synod to meet with them in 1904 It is an established custom that the hoay meet in the West at least once in a decade so Grand Rapids was chosen for the next meeting place. The General Synod has met eleven times in Asbury Park within thirteen years. A letter from President Roosevelt was read, ex pressing regret that he was unable to attend tne meeting of the General Synod, and assuring the delegates that ho would have done so If it were possible. President Roosevelt Is a member or tne Dutch Reformed Church and an honorary member of the General Synod. DIVORCE CAUSES A BREEZE. The remarriage of divorced persons caused a breeze, occasioned by the committee on correspond ence, through the Rev. Dr. Alfred E. Myers, of New- York Introducing the following resolution: "Resolved. That the General Synod hereby enjoins upon the ministers of the Reformed Church not to remarry divorced persons, excepting the Innocent i party In a divorce obtained for the cause of adul | tery." In favoring the resolution. Dr. Myers eaid that the remarriage of divorced persons was a menace to Christian civilization, and he desired tho Re formed Church to go on record as standing on tha platform of Jesus Christ covering the divorce ques tion. The Rev. Dr. Burrell thought the question of bo much importance that the resolution should be referred to the next synod, but another resolution, by Dr. Vance, to postpone further consideration of the subject until to-morrow's session, was adopted. KILLED BY HONDTTRIAN SOLDIERS. Man Said To Be American Citizen Shot Down in Street. [BT TELE^HAPH TO THE TRIBfNE.] Mobile, June 9.— News was received here to day of the murder in Puerto Cortez, Spanish Honduras, of Dr. Albert Ferrari, said to be a naturalized American citizen. The friends of the dead man say that thoy will bring the mat- i ter before the United" States Government. Dr. Ferrari was recently graduated from a Philadelphia medical college, and was on his ! way home to vis'.t Wb parents, after an absence J of six years, when shot down in the streets of Puerto Cortez by soldiers. From what is learned of the killing, the individual has little show for his life in Honduras. While the government gives protection in a way. ths slaypr is rarely punished, and murder is an ordinary occurrence. After the murder Dr. Ferrari's body we^ buried in a marsh, a noap box being used as a coffin. An investigation was made, but the man who ordered the soldiers to fire was not molested. On the ni^ht of his arrival there was a dance at the hotel or town hall, where Dr. Ferrari went with his coupln, the chief of police at Puerto Cortez. His cousin became involved In a difficulty with an officer of the city, which culminated in a general fight. The officer went | to the commandant of the fort and demanded soldiers for protection. The commandant or dered three men to go with the officer. In the mean while Ferrari, his cousin and a friend left j the place where the dance was going on and started up the street. Thoy had not proceeded far when the r were met by the officer and sol diers. The officer recognized the chief of police and ordered the soldiers to fire. The chief of ! police and the other man fell to the ground, but I Ferrari, having forgotten the customs of the country in such emergencies, stood erect and was shot through the head. An investigation was held, but the city officer in* charge of the soldiers was not arrested. The matter has not ended there, however, as the doctor's family is a wealthy one. The killing may lead to international complications, it being '. believed that Ferrari wiis a naturalized Amrrt- I can citizen. This phase of the case :s being I looked Into by the relatives and friends of the dead man, and if it ts shown that he was an American citizen they will ask this government to take up the caso.

That permission be. and the sama is. here.r,> given to John Jacob Astor to build an iron and gla*s porch, in accordance with the accompanying 'dia gram, over the Fifth-aye. entrance to the building which he is about to erect at the southwest corner of Fifth-aye. and Fifty-flfth-st.. in the Borough of Manhattan, the work to be done at his own ex nen.-e. undec the direction of the Commissioner of Highways: "Such permission to continue only during the pleasure of the Municipal Assembly. Adoptee. November 12, 1901, and approved by the Mayor. November IS. 1901. This. Mr. Mayor' is an encroat h ment, not authorized by law. for the purpose of a porch, occupying fifteen feet of the public ?! r r e and extending from the southeast corner of *i"> fifth-.ot. and Fifth-aye . 100 feet south. I question whether the Board of Aldermen have any authority to lfm n conflden?tnt r t m Mr. Yanderbilt, who i, Known as an eminently good citizen, left tne planning of the alterations to his house to his arc hltect.

It. then there £;" llri b» no objection to an occupant of a house in Urst ave or the Boulevard erecting an enclosure l front of his dwelling and enjoying his repast in the open air. nor could he be prohibited from es tablishing b^er gardens in First-aye. or the Boule vard as they are now permitted and continued on Klfth-ave. Mr. Crimmins tells the Mayor that he ha 3 looked up tho records rather thoroughly, and adds that he cannot find that any ordinance ever was passed giv ing lot owners above Twenty-ninth-st. in Fifth-aye. the right to have fifteen feet between the sidewalk and the fronts of their houses'. Mr. <"rimmins says the controlling: ordinance of April 5. 1532. expressly states that if the city should need this courtyard space In front of Fifth-aye. dwellings it may take possession of it again. Mr. Crimmins wants to call a halt on the practice of er.<roachlng upon the streets, and says: The sidewalks of Nassau-st., for Instance, the steps, entrances to basements, and all owtnenona above the sidewalk level between th« house line and the curb, should be removed.
