Able to Enter Ports Barred to the Victoria
and Albert
The British royal yacht, the Osborne. is to be
repUuid by a new turbine yacht from compcUtive
plans submitted by A. & J. l^'lls. of Pointhouse
The new yacht Is designed for the exclusive use of
ie British royal family, and will have no accom
modations for largo parties of guests. She is to be
about 137 feet shorter than the Victoria and Albert,
and of much less drauz^t. so that he may enter
such ports as Flushing or Nice, which tha larger
vessel cannot do. Tho plans for the new turbine
have been approved by the King, after they had
been especially recommended to him by Admiral
61r John Fullerton. Admiral Sir A. Berkeley-Milne
and Philip Walts, Director of Naval Construction,
who comprised the Admiralty commiltee.
The dimensions of the new yacht, which will be
about ti,VJQ tons gross, are length. -<> feet load
wtLlfcrilxic. arid Leant, 40 feet. She will be pro
lin'.cd by three Parsons turbines, driving separate
shafts, each with a tingle screw, and in expected
to develop a speed of .it least seventeen knots. The
boilers will probably be of the ordinary cylindrical
type. -- *:■

New-Haven. Conn., April 13.— The annual spring
games of Yale will take place on Saturday, and will
furnish an excellent opportunity of seeing just what
the athletes can do for the annual intercollegiate

Revenue from Measure for Highway
£bt telegraph to thb tbjbtjnb.]
Albany, April is.— There was more tinkering
with the Automobile Tax bill to-day. After hear
ing the views of a large delegation of motor
ists the Senate taxation committee changed the
measure to meet several of their objections, and
the measure as It will be reported to-morrow will
provide that the revenue from the tl a horse
power tax shall be turned over to the State Engi
neer, to be used for the maintenance of improved
highways already constructed. It will not apply
to manufacturers, and the tax will be referred to
as a licesse fee. This last amendment was intro
duced to guard against the danger that the law
might be declared unconstitutional as class taxa
tion Bearing on this kind of vehicles and exempt
ing others.
Charles T. Terry, of New-York, representing the
National Association of Automobile Manufacturers,
who made the principal argument for the auto
mobilists. asked the committee to withdraw the
measure ana prepare tor introduction next year a
bill providing for a road improvement bureau
which should derive revenue for highway builuing
from general taxation of all kinds of vehicles.
"The motorists.' 1 said he. "do not object to be
taxed for road improvement, providing others who
use the roads are taxed also."
"Such a bill as you propose," replied Senator
Lewis, "would not get five votes."
Senator Lewis believed that a horseDOwer tax
would discourage the use of extremely high power
vehicles, which, he said, had no ri?ht on the high
ways. "No," naid Mr. Terry, "people who can
afford high power machines would not notice a
high tax. It Is the theory and principle of the
tax we object to."
He Eecently Underwent an Operation —
Skaats Appointed.
A meeting of the board of governors of the Auto
mobile Club of America was held In the clubrooms

ill health. Mr. Shattuck had his lower Intestines
operated on twice recently. He will sail for Eu

that he expected the final plans of the new club
house to be ready for Inviting bids about April 20.

Committee on Elementary Schools
to 'Consider Objections.
A number of letters from charitable and educa
tional organizations have been turned over to the
Committee on Klementary Schools, of the Board
of Education, protesting vigorously against the
shortening of the school day in the first year of
the elementary school course.
Un the afternoon of May 3 the committee will
hold a public hearing on the question In the as
sembly room of the hall of the board, Park-ave<.
and s&th-st. Any ono on this occasion will be per
mitted to set forth his views. When the commit
tee has satisfied itself that It has heard enough
testimony to make a choice of sides, it will rentier
a report to the Board of Education.
The associations of employes of the department
have been active in opposing the shorter day. "It
Is the object of the school eystem to give the r-hil
drcn a thorough training, mental, moral and physi
cal." declares the Association o! Women Princi
pals. 'The introduction of part time classes has
proved detrimental to the Interests of the* children
in all three respects. It is the generally expressed
desire of the parents that the school day be at l«-ast
five hours long." "We regard the five-hour school
day essential to the welfare of the first-year pupils,
and protest earnestly aglttnst nny attempt of cur
tailment." says tne Male Principals' Association
of Manhattan and The Bronx. Thf Brooklyn Prin
cip:Us" Association, the Public Education Associa
tion, the Normal College Alumnae House, and the
principals of tho 14tri and 18th districts express
similar sentiments.
The Child I^ibor Committee, of which Robert
Hunter is chairman, and the Association of Neigh
borhood Workers object to the shorter day.
Subway Roof Kept in Constant Repair, Says
Chief Engineer.
Chief Engineer Deyo. of the Rapid Transit Con
struction Company, made light yesterday of the
allegation* of Gustave. C. Henning. a mechanical
engineer, at a meeting of the taxpayers of Wash
ington Heights Wednesday night, that water leak
ing through parts of the Harlem section of the
subway tunnel would eventually rust the iron
girders supporting the tunnel and cause a cave-in.
Mr. Deyo said:
I know Mr Uenning very well, and have a high
regurd for his Judgment, but he is entirely wrong
in his contention. In a great undertaking like the
subway, there aro always arising conditions re
quiring correction, and l««ks In the tunnel are no
exception. We are constantly watching for them,
and have an organized corps attending to them.
Of course, where water come* In contact with
the steel girders continuously it does them no
good, but It would take vastly more than the ten
yearß claimed by Mr. Henning to harm them. I
can assure the public they need have no alarm
over the possibility of the tunnel, or, rather, the
roof of the tunnel, through leaks or otherwise,
caving in. Wherever a leak has been found and
repaired it ha^ .been made absolutely waterproof.

Members of the Exmoor Country Club have re
eelved notice of a special assessment of 110. which,
with the regular dues of HO. will bring the amount
I for the season up to $100. In making the announce
ment the governors of the club explain that the flre
of last season was instrumental m adding to the
I expenses of the year, while It made receipts smaller.
In all about 110.000 is needed to clear up indebted
ness and provide for repairing and furnishing.

The next big tournament in which metropolitan
players will appear will occur at Lakewood on
I April 27. 28 and 29. The qualifying round is to be at
thirty-six holes, medal play, the first sixteen Quali
fying for the Lakewood Cup and the second sixteen
for the Metedeconk Cup. In addition there will be
prizes for the best score In the qualifying round
and In the closing handicap. There will also be a
team championship banner, with medals to the in
dividual members of the winning team.
Reports from the West indicate that even at this
season, when. Western golX courses are being care
fully nurtured, the Chicago Golf Club Is in almost
suitable shape for the championship. Not since the
links was laid out has It been in such splendid
shape so early in April, a gratifying index of what
may be expected when the National Amateur Cham
pionship takes place there next August. In its
present aspect the links Is said to be the best
bunkered course in the West. A good shot always
has Its reward, but mistakes are punished fairly
and faithfully- Luck evidently cuts less figure at
i Wheaton than formerly, and the player who wins
, the championship must earn his right to the title
according to championship standards. Alan Reed,
who Is— well, everytblng-et the club, says that the
course will be in almost perfect shape for the tour

Report That He Wants McCarrens
Aid for Election.
Although It could not be traced to its source
and no one could be found who -would confirm
It positively, the old ruroar that Charles F.
Murphy. In view of the coming municipal elec
tion, had decided to abandon his fight against
Senator McCarren took on new Importance last
night. The report that a truce had been ar
ranged was heard in various parts of the bor
ough and excited considerable discussion. One
of the most prominent of the anti-McCarrea
leaders, when asked about the truth of the
stories, would not deny that they had a basis.
Ills manner seemed to Indicate that there was
something in them beyond the idle gossip that
has been heard for several months.
The leader of Tammany Hall has been sorely
disappointed in his failure to overthrow Mo
Carren in spite of the tremendous odds of
patronare which were in Murphy's favor. Every
move he has made has proved fruitless. He has
made some inroads into the strength of the Sen
ator but the latter still maintains coatrol of
the "executive committee and of the organiza
tion. Without any prospect of shaking Mr-
Carren's power before the fall convention and
election, and seeing a great menace to the suc
cess of the Democratic ticket in the hostile at
titude of the Kings County Democracy. Murphy.
it Is stated, has at last decided to make his
neaco with McCarren. If the latter consents to
terms of peace he will undoubtedly be allowed to
name the candidate for Controller.

Lord Inverclyde Says Combination
Is Against English Lime.
Liverpool. April 13.— At the annual lassling. of
the shareholders of the Cunard Lino hero to
day, the chairman. Lord Inverclyde. announced
that the shipping combination had Intimated Its
Inability to carry out one of the most Important
clauses of the settlement recently arrived at,
and consequently all tentative arrangements be
tween the Cunard Lin* and the Continental lines
end the combination were Inoperative. Lord In
verclyde was unable to say if the present rates
would be maintained. He considered that the
policy the Cunard Line followed in the past
was the only possible one, and believed that
the Atlantic shipping combination was aimed di
rectly against the Cunard Line.
The chairman believed the shareholders would
not regret the sacrifices necessary to maintain
the Independence of the Cunard Line against
the alliance formed against it. The directors
had received encouragement both here and from
America to continue to defend the company's
Interests. The chairman also referred to the
governmental support of the German lines as In
dicating the severity of the struggle.
Beyond the loss of revenue caused by the rate
war. Lord Inverclyde stated that be did not re
gret a single step taken. There was at present
no agreement between the Cunard Line and the
combination. The only effect of the tentative
agreement was that passenger rates were re
stored to their old level.
Withdrawal of Canard line Will Bit Af
fect Prices Is General Belief.
The statement that the Cunard Line had with
drawn from, the shipping combination was con
firmed yesterday by the American representatives
and officers of several of the tines affected. Ter
non H. Brown, agent of the Cunard Line, said:
All the tentative agreements between tho Cttaard
and Continental lines and the combination are In
operative. I do not think there will be any rabid
rate cutting, i* there is any cutting at all. Of
course, there may be some radical rate action later
on. but it is too early to talk about or anticipate It.
Inability of several lines other than the Canard to
carry out several important: clauses in a settle
ment recently reached in Berlin was the cause
which led the unard to fro out. Cutting is not the
Cunard Line's object. We only prefer to be free
and clear, because hi the past we have done better
&9 an independent line, and believe' we shall 4o
better now.
The tentative agreement jeferred to was that
following the old rate war. WRlch brought rates
back to their former basis. The consensus of
optnlon among representatives of other Uses was
tb?t there w.mld be no rare cutting. Emil Boas.
