One fact in connection with the inauguration

,' % the military organizations that accom

', OTCe do honor to the President and show
their' respect for the man, there was not a single
m«n ho did not go entirely at his own personal
'' ". fe and without any expectation whatever
„f reimbursement from the State. It is prob
ahir the first time in the history of our State
that «uch has been the case, and while it tes
•ifif* unquestionably to the high regard in which
you are held by our soldiers. I think it also
demonstrates a "high sense of civic duty and
deserves to be emphasized.
It Is needless for me to say that nothing that
has occurred during: my political life has given
me so much pleasure as being present at your
Inauguration.
T^ this the President replied:
My Dear Governor— l would like, through you,
•y hearty thanks to the men of the
al Guard of the State of New-York who

It doec sp^ak well for their patriotism and sense
of civic duty that the Guardsmen who accom
panied you to Washington should all have paid
<vn expenses w^hout expectation of reim
tneat to them rrom the State, and, my
.uvernor, surely you knov.- what a prldo
suici pleasure it vras to me to see you and them
at the inauguration. „

After his second hibernation of el weeks this
winter, the ground hog reappeared yesterday, and

BOOKER INQUIRY BEGINS.
Justice, Showing Effects of Nerv
ous Strain, Faces Committee.
Albany, March 16.-Showing the effects of his re
cent railroad accident and of the nervous strain
he has endured for the last year, but eager and
alert to a marked degree. Justice Warren B. Hook
er to-toy faced the Assembly Judiciary Committee,
which undertakes the investigation of his conduct.
The hearings were begun after a long delay, and
tho first seaskm of the committee indicates that
the. investigation will bo a protracted one. There
were three hours of preliminary discussion and
then an adjournment was taken until 2 o'clock next
Tuesday, to permit a representative of Justice
Hooker to fro to Washington to verify copies of
letters bearing on the appointment of the- defend
ant's relatives to positions in th© Fredonia post
office.
Justice Hooker was accompanied by his counsel,
John B. Stanchfleld, of Elmlra; Lewis E. Carr. of
Albany, and William W. Goodrich, of Brooklyn. .
The committee's legal adviser was Henry B. Co.
man. and the following: lawyers appeared for varl->
ous bar associations: William P. Goodelle and 8.
Hunting-ton, of the State liar Association; Frank
W. Stevens, of the Jamestown Bar Association;
Herbert T. Ketcham, Of the Brooklyn Bar Associa
tion, and Walter McFarlane, of the New- York Bar
Association.
Considerable discussion was caused by the con
tention of the defence that there are no charges
against Justice Hooker and therefore nothing on
which to base the Investigation. The two motions
of Mr. Stanchfield were overruled and a formal
protest against the method of procedure was en
tered by him.
INSISTS ON LOWER BIDS.
No City lighting Contract Other
wise, Declares the Mayor.
Mayor McClellan declared yesterday that unless
bids for the city lighting showed a substantial re
duction from present prices none of them would
be accepted. A tabulated statement of the bids
submitted on Wednesday reached the Mayor's of
fice while he was in executive session with tho
Board of Estimate. He will have no opportunity to
examine it until to-day.
Deputy Commissioner Goodwin, who is In charge
of Commissioner Oakley's department, In the lat
ter's absence, said the bids were practically the
same as those submitted last year. The difference,
he said, was ° slight as to be of hardly any conse
quence.
Controller Grouts comment on. the bids was:
Those whom the gods would destroy they first
make mad. "
The Board of Estimate at its meeting yesterday
authorized the Controller to obtain by private pur
chase two sites for municipal lighting plants— one
at East 90th-st. and Avenue A, for $350,000. and the

PRAISE PROBE FOR GAS.
Republican County Committee In
dorses Legislative Action.
The Republican County Committee, at its regu
lar meeting last night, heard sugsres'ionp offered by
the committee en public interests, made by Otto
A. Rov-alsky, its chairman. These were later
taken up by the committee ami adopted in the form
of resolutions. Tbe first resolution was that the
committee approve of the action of the Stale legis
lature in ordering an investigation of gas in th«
city, and recommending suitable legislation as a
result of such inquiry.
The bill now before the State Legislature looking
toward the making of the Borough of the Bronx a
county, was denounced by Mes.-rs. Nile and Rush
as a Tammany measurp, which would benefit no
one save Tammany office holders, and was con
demned by the committee.
Mr. Rosalsky offered a resolution, which was
adopted, condemning the proposed "L" bridge loop
and approving the hill now before the legislature,
Which forbids the construction of an elevated
structure on th«> East Side streets. A subway
connection for the bridges was urged. Another
resolution was adopted in approval of lengthening
tenure of office of tha Mayor from two to four
years.
The urgent need of additional Witter supply for
the city was recognized, and a resolution was
adapted to ask such legislation au would adequate
ly meet the city's requirements, and empowering
tho clly to take such action as might be necessary
to construct needed works to get more water.
BC H. Healy asked the chair if the question of
proposed redistricting of districts was not in order.
He was told that it was, but was persuaded to
let the question rest with the executive committee,
to be taken up at its discretion. W. H. Ten Eyck
reported that the executive committee had met ia
tho aft#rnoon, but had no report to make.
GAYNOR ON GAS.
Urges Brooklyn League Men to
Fight High Prices.
Justice William J. Gaynor. speaJting at the an
nual dinner of the Brooklyn League at the Imperial
restaurant last night, declared that if legal ad
vice were obtained by his auditors it might show
that by a writ of mandamus or bill of equity a
citizen might possibly have the actual cost of gas
determined by tbe Supreme Court and compel the
gas corporation to furnish it at that price. He
urged them to fight against the high gas prices.
Justice Gaynor inveighed against any allegiance
to a national party organization In local affairs.
"In four elections," said he, "fifty thousand
Democrats have demonstrated that they owe no
allegiance to national party organizations in local
affairs.'
Kdward IC. Shepard recorded his opposition to
the construction of an elevated loop connecting the
Williamsburg and Brooklyn bridges on the Man
hattan side. He helieved that the cost of a subway
would not be materially greater. Controller Grout
reiterated the need of a public university in Brook
lyn. James McKeen, who presided, thought that
Brooklyn, by consolidation, had gained more than
It had lost.

NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, FRIDAY, MARCH 17.-*Ttf>s.
RAILROAD IN CANAL BED.
Constitutional Amendment Proposed
— Water Conduit Provided.
(by TKi.Ei;nArn to the tbibtneJ
Albany, Kerch 16.— The proposition to sub
ntitute for i\w. proposed 1, 000- ton barge canal a
great freight railroad built on the bed of the
Eric Canal, which is advocated by W. E. D.
Btokea and other New-York railroad men, will
be presented to the legislature Monday night in
a concurrent resolution prepared by Senator
Ambler. This plan is expected to meet the
approval of those who favor the Apgar bill, in
troduced yesjerday, providing for a water sup
ply for New-York City from Lake Erie, large
enough to let other cities along the route tap it.
Senator Ambler said to-day that three of tho
largest railroad companies In the State stood
ready to fill up the canal and construct such a
railroad with the guarantee to carry freight at
v cost as low as that of the proposed barge
canal, and at a speed of thirty miles an hour.
He pointed out that the water conduit could be
laid at comparative low cost In the canal bed
before It was filled in.
The resolution strikes out that part of the con
stitution which prohibits the legislature from
selling:, leasing or otherwise disposing- of the
Krio and other canals, and substitutes the fol
lowing amendment:
The legislature may declare abandoned such por
tion or portions of the canal as it deem 3 advisable
and may provide for the construction, equipment
and operation of a railroad for the transportation
of freight upon the route of any canal or portion
thereof so abandoned. Such railroad may be con
structed and operated by the State, or the legis
lature may grant the privilege of constructing and
operating such railroad to any person or corpora
tion, subject to snch restrictions as the legislature
may determine, or the legislature may provide that
such railroad shall be constructed by the State and
may lfase the privilege of equipping and operating
such railroad to any person or corporation, subject
to liko restrictions.
BELMOXT WINS FIGHT.
Manhattan Club Elects Him a Man
ager, Despite Harriman 's Contest.
Against strong opposition. Perry Belmont was
made a manager of the Manhattan Club at the
annual election last night. John Hone, John G.
Carlisle and P. F. Mac Donald were the other
managers elected. The only opposition was to
Belmont, because he was not at the club often
enough.
Lewis J. Conlan was elected trustee for one
year, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of
Ashbel P. Fitch.
The final vote on the contest between Perry
Belmont and George P. Harriman, his opponent,
showed 206 votes for Mr. Belmont and 97 for
Mr. Harriman.
The clubhouse was thronged. Mr. Belmont
left there two hours before the result was an
nounced, and just before he departed was seen
to throw a handful of tickets to the floor. Evi
dently he had been doing his own electioneering.
The members were enthusiastic over the re
sult of the election, and expressed the belief that
the great interest shown would do much to
build up the club.
BIG LOANS, NO SECURITY.
Dealings of Hanover National
Bank and J. Berry <% Co.
That banks loan large sums to stock brokerage
houses and other customers on the good name of
the borrower and without security In the form of
collateral was adir.itted yesterday by an officer
of the Hanover National Bank in the course of
the hearing before S. W. Dexter, referee in bank
ruptcy, in the Jacob Berry & Co. bankruptcy pro
ceedings. This procedure was only recently shown
to have been followed by an even more important
institution, the National City Bank, in making un
secured daily loans to Munroe & Alunroe.
The witness who testified to the Hanover's cus
tom of granting such accommodation was Henry
K. <_arse, assistant cashier of the bank. In an
swer to questions by J. Rosenberg, attorney for the
.Berry concern's creditors, Mr. (."arse said that
Berry & Co. liaU a. commercial account with the
Hanover Bunk and that the bank granted th«s firm
loans from time to time.
He said that he could not tell whether or not
dally loans of |100,')iiv had been granted to the Berry
firm. He identified a passbook of Berry & Co
with the Hanover .National Bank, and read from it
a loan of $1011,000 granted to Berry & Co on Novem
ber 2:., IDO4, the day before th».- failure. Asked what
fcecurity was given. Mr. Carse said that Mr. Ben
nett, a partner of Mr. Berry, called him up on the
telephone and said that hi had various loans se
cuied, and that he bad collateral on which he
wished to obtain loans. There was a general agree
ment t>etween the bank and Berry & Co. He re
fused to product- the agreement.
The loans were secured by promissory collateral
notes. He was asked if the only security was the
equity of tho firm, and he answered that the se
cur;ty was the good name of the firm dealing with
the bank.
He declined to read from tho passbook from Octo
ber 1 to the date of the failure all the loans of
JIuO.OGO. Tho passbook was put in evidence, and Mr.
Rosenberg read from it. showing that on October
4. 5 and 6 loans of $100,000 had been made to Berry
A: Co, Some were Be :ured and seme were not. The
book showed further loans of $100 o*"t on October
7. l". n. 12, 13. ii, n. 19, 2<>. 22. 24. 25 and besides, on
October 24, ionns of $50,000 and $15,W">. on October
25 $45,000, and on October 26, another $4.^.000. Witness
admitted that he had arranged some of these loans.
Where no collateral was offered, a note was al
ways given. No Interest was charged on these loans
and no compensation was given. The consideration
was the brokers' account. The firm had a handsome
account with tho bank and received no more ac
commodation than such account entitled it to. The
same accommodation was given to other business
people of like standing.
The hearing was adjourned until March 21.
CASTRO WOULD INVADE AMERICA.
Plans to Lead Thirty Thousand Soldiers Up
Mississippi Valley.
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)
"Willemstad, Island of Curacoa, March 16.—Ac
cording to trustworthy advices received here the
situation in Venezuela Is unchanged, both internal
ly and as to foreign affairs, except that the rela
tions between President Castro and the various le
gations at Caracas are a little more strained.
The members of the diplomatic corps are chafing
under the state of affairs now existing, and some
of them are frank in saying that the existing sit
uation cannot be much further prolonged. It is
said that none of the diplomats have been able to
have an interview with Castro concerning disputed
international questions for months.
President Castro maintains his belligerent atti
tude and continues to make military preparations.
He apparently regards an attack on Porto Cabello
and La Guayra as probable and has mounted .six
new French 6-inch suns and a number of smaller
guns on the heights overlooking these ports, and
lias made available three' small coast defence ves
sels.
Castro's attitude is reflected in a pamphlet just
issued through one of his advisers. Colonel Juan
Bautistia Lamedo. in which plans for sending thirty
thousand Venezuelans against -Orleans are
disclosed.
The following is an extract from the pamphlet:
Perhaps thirty thousand Venezuelans, bearing the
glorious national banner, that very banner whose
floating iris Illuminated the waters of La Plata
with th« splendor of the Venezuelan fatherland to
the echoes of the clarions of Carabobo, of Bom*
bona and of Ayacucho, would to-day be sufficient
to wash away the insult which onr glorious flag
lias r?cefved from North America, in the very
waters of the Mississippi. Conduncurca is not
more distant from Venezuela than the hostile land,
nnd the territories which we have to cross in order
to arrive there are almost all of the same father
land. Colombia, the first of these, will readily open
its frontiers to glv« paessM to the boss of Bolivar,
as well as Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Mexico, the
fatherland of Juarez, feared by Prance and by
Burope for his formidable and terrible patriotism.
There can i*- no doubt that our Latin brothers
would willingly op*a the way for the army of
Venezuela, in order that the sons of Washington
Should not be allowed to believe themselves more
valiant end warlike than the sons of Bolivar. This
may seem to many a Utopian vision, but when we
reflect that the North American squadrons cannot
operate In the forests, and that traders will always
be traders. inept and cowardly In feats of heroism,
our hearts swell within us and we are willing to
tike our st^int in the vanguard, among the dla
tlneulohed heroes of the New World, who are
called once more to prove that Venezuela If Im
mortal and Is th* first to take up th«» glove which
Is thrown down day to tho whole of Spanish
America./

FARLEY'S MEN REBEL.
Reserves Prevent Riot When Cut in
Pay Is Discovered.
There was open rebellion among the six hun
dred strike breakers Drought to this city by the
Interboroush last night owing to alleged unfair
treatment. Open violence was prevented just
before 10 o'clock by the calling out of police
reserves of the Tre.nmiu and Morrisania sta
tions.
The men were hungry. Food had been" given
them at 4 a. m. Then the food was taken from
the 179th-st. and od-ave. barns and the men
were told that the pay ear would reach the
barns at 7 o'clock. Then they would be paid oft
and they could buy their food. The pay car did
not reach tho 170th-st. barn.
"Let's burn the road." shouted several of the
men late in the afternoon. The cry was taken
up, but the men were kept within bounds up
to 5 o'clock. They were in «many instances
extremely hungry.
The company's offices were hourly consulted
by the police, and as often sent word that the
pay car was on its way. Seven, 8 and 1) o'clock
came and went, and the men were in a ferment
of excitement. At 0:lf> o'clock Captain Ferris
sent for the reserves.
"When these arrived the men drew the Infer
ence that the company did not intend to "pay
off" until to-day. Thp police could not keep
the men from making open threats. At 9:30
o'clock the paycar was shuttled into the barn,
and immediately the police surrounded it. The
men, half starved and thoroughly maddened,
made a rush for the car, and the police had to
push them back with drawn nightsticks.
Then for a few minutes all went well. But
when those first paid off examined their envel
opes they discovered that they had other cause
for complaint. Promises of pay from the time
they tc^k the places of the strikers on Tuesday
morning of last week up to and including
Wednesday, and in some instances Thursday,
had been made. Wh?n the men examined their
envelopes they found that they had been paid
for only from Tuesday to Saturday last, and
again they rebelled.
No answer was forthcoming from the pay
master as to why the promisee had not been
kept and the men declared they would not
le.ive the company's barns until they had been
paid in full. Those who did not get their money
went to nearby saloons and admonished those
who were to be paid off later that they had
better stay in or about the barns all night, as
"there would be something" doing." Some of
the men waited in line for three and four houra
after the pay car arrived, and It was announced
that all would not be paid off until after S
o'clock this morning.
Captain Ferris maintained a strong police
guard about the barns and communicated with
Inspector Cortright at tho lattcr's home. In
nearby precincts orders were given for the
reserve men to be in readiness for a call at any
hour.
Some of the strike breakers were to go to San
Francisco, where ;, .strike is said to be sched
uled for May 1.
MANY FARLEY MEN STAY.
Get High Wages— Forty Per Cent
of Strikers to Get Back.
The force brought here by Farley to smash the
elevated and subway strike, having accomplished
their mission, were paid yesterday at the different
barns of the company. Tiicse men had the option,
if the strike was broken within three weeks, to
remain with the company at the wages they con
tracted to come for.
A number of the men who received twice as much
while strike breaking as in the cities they came
from will return to the West. General Manager
Hedley Bald yesterday that • most of them would
remain. Those who are motormen will receive
$3 50 a day, that being the contract made with
them Farley will remain here a day or two.
It was stated yesterday that about 40 per cent of
the strikers may eventually get back, but they will
probably be Idle for many months. It was stated
yesterday that the company now had all the motor
men and conductors it needed.

terday, especially in the subway. The elevated ex
presses on the 9th-ave. line ran at reduced speed
