Thousands See Mr. Kecne's Good
Colt Take Turf Classic.
A throng chillingly deficient in enthusiasm
tnd appreciably smaller in numbers than at any
recent running of the Brooklyn Handicap was
attracted to the Brooklyn Jockey Club's in
<-losure yesterday and paid from 33 1-3 to 50
j>er cent more than it has ever paid before to
«=ee James B. Keene's Delhi, the sprinting son
d Ben Brush, win the nineteenth renewal of
the famous race from a field that was dis
tinctly below the average in class. Save for
the fart that the winner was the public's choice
tor the handicap and that the bookmakers of-
Jrred & price against his chances that made his
victory remunerative, the opinion of the ten
thousand who paid $3 each to see the race from
the frr£Jid6tar.d and the fifteen thousand that
contributed ?1 a head for the privilege of wlt
j^Fslng it from the so-called free field was that
5t had "aid too much. Even the officers of the
Brooklyn Jockey Club were forced to admit
that the prioo was a little excessive, considering
•the composition of the field, and Mr. Dwyer, the
president of the club, conceded, Ira&kly that, as
•the fates would have It. the local racing asso
ciations had selected a most Inopportune mo
iv.fnt to raise the price of admission.
"With the possible exception of Broomstick,
She ten horses which Delhi defeated were little
above the overweight handicap division in qual
ity, and a majority of. them would not have ap
t>eared ooT>spiruou6]y out of place in a high
Hasa gelling race. If yesterday's renewal was
vorth $3 to -watch, the regulars argued, then
the one of a year ago, won by The Picket from
Jrish L<ad in a thrilling finish, was worth at
least J$K».
But to thousands of raring folk Brooklyn
Jlandlcap Day is as much a holiday ac any set
tside by church or state and or. to be ob
served Quite as punctiliously, whatever the cost.
And these thousands assembled within the gates
of Gravesend yesterday paying the Increased
tariff with no audible murmur of protest. It
*as noticeable that the "punters" held that ex
tra dollar In some esteem, and thousands who,
unc-er the old rate, would have patronized the
rrandstaad choso the field and that sporting
lndoßure profited hugely at the expense of its
r.ext doer neighbor. It waa the only place, In
fact that was uncomfortably crowded, and be
fore the candidates for the handicap had com
pleted their toilets it had become so populated
that scrme outlet vras imperatively demanded,
and the infield "was thrown open to it.
The clubhousa alone was the only precinct
MSOB which the n*w rates apparently had no
effect and this was filled to overflowing with
the well dressed, prosperous, throng that
would far rather miss Gabriel's final trumpet
Mast than not to be vlthln hearing of the bugle
call for a Brooklyn Handicap. To the dyed-ln-
Ihe-wool regulars, moreover, the Joy of getting
lark to little old Gravesend after the trying
eplenflor of Belmont Park wa. like a glimpse
of vana. and It mattered little to them
whether sellin* platers or Btake hor»eg struggled
Cor the glory of having their names added to the
muster roll of Brooklyn Handicap winners.
They could at least see how their wagers were
won or |Mt without the aid of a telescope or a
range finder.
It was principally In the kind of horw. that
D»lhi defeated that rotbed his victory of th«
K'ory It otherwise would have possessed. From
every other angle at which a horserace can be
viewed his performance was Btriotly of «ake
calibre . He took up top weight; made conces
rions. ranging from five pounds to Broomstick
to thirty-two pounds to Ostrich; blazed the way
?or the enthfe Journey, responded with unfalter
ing courage to the call of his rider, withstood a
menacing challenge with a stoutness of heart he
has not . ays shown, and ran the trying jour-
J ey of HH mile and a quarter in the remarkably
fast time of 2KXJ2-5-which, with the exception
of Iri6h Lad's victory In 1903, is the fastest
time on record for the race. But. as has been
tall, the company he led into camp by two
lengths was of the most ordinary sort. There
w«tc no horses with the fleetness of foot of a
Hermis or of an Irish l>ad. or with the plod
ding, never-say-quit spirit of The Picket to
dlapvts bis triumphal progress. With the ex
ception of a brief &nd trying moment at the
3a«i Quarter pole, his supremacy was never se
riously Questioned. At the finish bis nearest
opponent was tlie Boston Btabla'fl four-year-old
<olt Ostrich, \rhich dropoed from the clouds In
the last sixteenth of a mile and robbed Grazi
8110 of tlie pUca he had held from the raising
of the barrier. The supposedly cheap thrce

Banking Finn Files Petition, with
$1,714,868 Liabilities.
Boston, May 25. — Seventy-cms tanks and
trust companies, most of them In Massachu
setti". but several situated In various parts of
the country, are among the creditors of the
banking- firm of Burnett. Cummings & Co., of
No. 43 Milk-st., this city, which to-day filed a
voluntary petition In bankruptcy in the United
States District Court, -with liabilities placed Ht
?],714.3(35. The onsets are stated to be uncer
tain, but the creditors have been given to un
derstand that they ■will not exceed $2<><\o<». if.
Indeed, they prove to be of any value. The
bankruptcy petition is the heaviest ever filed in
this district.
J. T. Auebaoh, counsel for the bankrupt firm,
Bald that the cause of the failure was the build
ing aud financing of the Concord and Boston
Street Railway Company, the Middleboro.
"Wareham ard Buzzard's Bay Street Rall
vray Company, the Lowell and Boston
Street Railway and the Bristol County Rail
way Company, These roads were in thinly set
tled districts and were unable to make advan
tageous connections with roads running to Bos
ton. The four companies were placed Jn the
hands of receivers, and their notes became
valueless. Furthermore, the Massachusetts Se
curities Company's bonds, which- were secured
by obligations of the railways, lost value and
entaJled losses on th<» firm. Mr. Auebach stated
also that the buying of the Hampden Trust
Company, of Springfield, and the Taunton Safe
Deposit and Trust Company, of Taunton, both
of which, unknown to the firm, were in serious
financial straits and which were placed in the
hands of reoeiverp, hastened the firm's financial
embarrassment. The refusal of the extension
of credit by banks then made a continuance la
business impossible.
The secured creditors number eighty-seven
and the unsecured eighty-one. There are thirty -
two Massachusetts savings banks in the list of.
creditors, and thirteen Massachusetts national
banks. It is understood that the securities
given the banks for their loans were bonds ot
the Massachusetts Securities Company, which,
in turn, were secured by notes of the bankrupt
electric railways. One of the largest creditors Is
the Worcester Cent Savings Bank, of "Wor
cester, with a claim of $SO,G<)O.

their investigations had gone the savings bankb

Worcester. Mass., May 25.— Chandler Bul

Savings Bank, said to-night to a reporter for
"The Telegram" that his bank's claim against
Burnett, Cuinmings & Co. is fully secured.
The difficulties of Burnett, Cummings & Co.
have been known to bankers in Boston and this
city for more than a year. It is not believed
that any local institution or financial interest
is among the creditors.

On May 18 the City Councils of Philadelphia voted to lease the city gas works to the
United Gas Improvement Company for a term of seventy-five years for $25,000,000.
The action was taken amid much excitement, and Mayor Weaver announced himself
as unalterably opposed to the lease and in favor of postponing the matter until 1907.
Indignation meetings were held by Philadelphia citizens, and a delegation of one hun
dred ministers called on Mayor Weaver and urged him to stand boldly for the rights of the
people. .
On May 23 Mayor Weaver summarily dismissed David J. Smyth, Director of Publio
Safety, and Peter E. Costello, Director of Publio Works, two of the principal members of
his cabinet, and declared his defiance of the political "machine" which they represented.
An injunction was secured by the removed officials to prevent the men appointed to
succeed them from taking office, and the men removed returned to the places they had
held and attempted to perform the duties.
Mayor Weaver, who had secured as counsel Elihu Root, ex-Secretary of War, and ex-
Judge James J. Gordon, of Philadelphia, took steps to eject the removed officials from the
offices they had resumed, holding that they were trespassers.
In the effort to regain the posts of directors of the departments of Public Safety and
Publio Works, which include all the principal municipal departments, with ten thousand
employes, the "machine" managers and adherents threaten to bring proceedings for im
peachment against Mayor Weaver, on the ground of malfeasance in office.
Mayor Declares He Has "Satisfying" Assurances from Councilmen —
Cheering Crowds Follow Him Through the Streets.
Philadelphia, May Stk— Philadelphia: a City
Aroused. Magazine writers have classified
this ac a city corrupt and contented. There
has always he^n a tendency, perhaps borne
out by oonditiona, to regard Philadelphia
as the Rip Van "Winkle of cities. Its lethargy,
its apathy and its general indifference to mu
nicipal welfare are well known. To-day saw a
new condition. This town saw a howling,
cheering, enthusiastic mob follow its Mayor
through its streets and acclaim him as its
savior. Mayor Weaver, in his fight against the
almost invincible organization and the TTnitefl
Gas Improvement Company, has arouse-i the
city from its stupor and general lethargy, and
to-night the city is in an uproar, nnd the masses
are solidly behind the Mayor, while the Repub
lican organization and corporation interests are
arrayed against him in a silent, grim and de
termined phalanx.
As a result of the agitation against the lease
three select and six common councilmen have
now announced that they will change their vote
on the lease. This would make the vote in
select council stand 34 for the lease and H
againsi, and in common council »">S for and lii
against It takes a two-thirds vote to pass an
ordinance over the Mayor's veto.
There were two big ward meetings held to
night. At one of the meetings, that in the 29th
Ward, two of the common councilmen attended
and announced that they would support the
Mayor. In the Mayor's own ward, the 40th,
the select councilman representing that district
said he would take the matter under considera
tion. About a thousand persons attended th<»
4<>th Ward meeting, and after the speakers had
concluded, a parade was started that ended at
Mayor Weaver's house. Tlie Mayor was not at
home, and the paraders sang songs and cheered
for both the Mayor and Mrs. Weaver.
W. C. Jutte, Thought Worth $15,

Atlantic City, N. J., May 25.— W. C. Jutte, a
Pittsburg merchant, committed suicide this
morning at a prominent beach front hotel by
shooting himstlf through the heart. He came
here several days ago in company with a nurse.
The nurse had stepped out of the room for a
moment when the deed was committed. The
bullet passed directly through the heart. Mr.
Jutte was forty-five years old.
Pittsburg, May 25.— The announcement of
the suicide of William C. June at Atlantic
City to-day was followed by the statement this
evening from his business associates that Mr.
Jutte, while supposed to he worth at least
$15,000,000, was very badly embarrassed finan
cially. This, coupled with ill health for several
months, was undoubtedly repponsible for his

Mayor Weaver attended a meeting of the
Philadelphia Law Association to hear an ad
dress by a Pennsylvania Supreme Court justice.
His appearance for a time interrupted the speech
of the Justice, so great was the desire of law
yers and others to greet the Mayor.
This has been a day of give and take between
the Mayor and his opponents, and to-night, in
"ring" palance, the Mayor has all the best of it
"on points." Philadelphia was to-day practi
cally a city without government The drastic
action of the Mayor In removing Smythe and
Costello. respectively the Director of Publh
Safety and Director of Public Works, was met
yesterday by the organization with a court order
restraining the Mayor from allowing the office.-*
he appointed to succeed the removed officials in
exercising the duties of the offices to which they
were appointed. The Mayor promptly retaliated
to-day by securing a writ of supersedeas, vacat
ing the original injunction and restoring his new
appointees and clothing them with all the au
thority of office.
This writ from the Supreme Court had hardly
been announced from the bulletin boards and
become generally known before the Mayor went
to luncheon at the Union League Club with
Colonel Potter, his newly appointed Director of
Public Safety. A crowd followed his fbotstep3
and cheered him to the echo. Th<» Mayor bowed
his acknowledgments from time to time and
could hardly escape the press of enthusiastic
citizens who wished to shake him by the hand
and tell him of their allegiance in the fight he
is waging.
The Republican organization to-night is as
arrogant and defiant as ever. There Is bitter and
insistent talk of Impeaching the Mayor on

Washington. May 2.".— The President will warn
Congress of the necessity of readjusting the
tariff schedules in his message to the special
session expected to be called for October lfi,
and it is probable, moreover, that he will ex
press himself on this subject with greater detail
in his message to the regular session, which
will convene on December 4.
From an entirely new and unexpected source
he is assured of receiving hearty support in his
advocacy of the scaling of those tariff schedules
which the country has outgrown since the Diny
ley law was placed on the statutes— that is. from
the protected industries themselves. In the
estimation of many of th^ ablest managers of
protected industries the protection now afforded
by the Dingley act is so great in some cases as
to induce Inordinate competition, with th<» result
that large concerns, whose business is menaced
by the continual organization of small com
petitors, are compelled to absorb the little fel
lows at extravagant valuations.
Attracted h> the allurhig possibilities of profit.
in an me* protected industry, men '.vith limited
< i.pital. and frequently wit^ limited experience,
an constantly tempted to invade that industry.
If permittted gradually to approach and finally
to arrive at insolvency they will inevitably,
under pressure of financial stress, demoralize
the market and entail serlom losses on th-ir
more solid contemporaries. To avoid this result
it is the custom of the large- concerns to buy
out their smaller competitors, even though cots>
pelled to l>uy at an overvaluation the little fel
low's plant.
When it becomes necessary for a larpre con
cern to buy up a small competitor it is the cus
tom to place on the market a new Issue of. stock,
or bonds, with which to raise the fun. is for the
purchase, and i:i this way the interest! of the
original stockholders are seriously menaced by
the constant danger of <>\ >rcapitalizati
that it is invariably the unfortunate stockholder
who suiters in the end.
This is an economic phase of the tariff ques
tion which appear* never to have dawned upon
the purely political "stand-patters," but It is
one which promises to prove a potent factor In
the movement for tariff readjustment It is not
one. i» must be admitted, which appeals to some
<>$ the trusts wivch make as 1-v.rse profits <>v.
nually from their manipulations of the stock
market as from th* legitimate pursuit of the
industry in which they are engaged, but it is one
that \iu:fly affects some of the tnoet important
business enterprises in the country, an<l mem
bers of Congress are certain to learn the facts
before they aie called upon to act on the Presi
dent's recommendations.
Another potent factor In precipitating a tariff
debate, however, will be the attitude of the
railways, which are now determined to throw
their Influence Into the scale in favor of read
justment They clearly appreciate, as do all
who have'closel] observed events In Washing
ton throughout the past year, that th« "stand
patters" seized with avidity upon the Presi
dent's recommendation of railway rate legisla
tion as a buffer with which to fend off that
tariff readjustment which theyjdreaded and
with th. hope of causing thi railwaj question
to eclipse the tariff problem in the public mind.
How well they have succeeded every one ap
predates hene more so than the railway men,
and It would t>« only natural if th( now
sought to retaliata by wielding theft- Influence
to assist the tariff readjusters. That the rail
way men cherish no particular regard for the
men who. to aave their own Interests, turned
the attend of the public to the evils " th
existing railway system is clearly illustrated
by a few moments' conversation with any of
the men who have come to Washington to op
nose rate legislation.
The railway men have, however, a more
worthy motive than that of revenge to prompt
their advocacy of soma modification of ,- n "
Dlnelev schedules. Whei Congress met last
fall the most earnest advocates of readjust
ment when asked what schedule, in their
estimation, most needed revision. Invariably re
pliel: "Why. steel, and. welt^steel. and Prob
ably several others." Recent exposures of th*
pHces demanded of the Panama Canal « om
nTsslon and <-f the regularsale to foreigners ol
domestic productions at prices far below those
demanded ol Americans have almost invariably
hlTto do with articles enumerated in the steel
■chedule One of the strongest argumei ad
vanced by advocates of readjustment has been
th* exorbitant price which American railroads
are compelled to pay for steel rails, as opposed
To the price at which their competitors on the
northern side of the Canadian boundary are
supplied with the same essential ol railway
CO Unae Ct thess circtwistaucesi. it Is generally be
lieved that the n*xt ConKTCSS will be subjected
to nowerful pressure from railway sources ma
terially to reduce the tariff on steel. Mr.
Schwab's remark thai steel rails can be pro
duced for |12 s ton will be extensively quoted,
and men who have stood "pat" for almost a
aenerarlon will be compelled to yield to th«
arguments of the railroads and advocate legis
latlon which will relieve the railways from the
present high prices which they are compelled to
pay to the steel Industry.
With the railroads advocating a lower tariff
on the products ol the Steel Trust, the spectacle
of the Steel Trust casting its Influence In favor
of railway rate legislation as a retaliatory
measure la i Imast rertain. and the r«-»ult no
man can foretell, although it is by no msauM
