In view of our former criticism IK Municipal Commission, we are particularly 2Ji to bear testimony to this improvement, and §Sr-'«« ti»rn our assistance In continuing it. •rEa Municipal Commission is called upon to cor- Jt sSwes in the granting of transfer* and In He appointment of laborers under special titles S*uSor.ied by the law or rules, and attention is SKlto the unfairness In permitting men to 2£**er as foremen simply to get employment as Sharers ahead of applicants higher up on the lists. ctb ahea.s of applicant* higher up on the lists, records of efficiency, as kept in the Municipal miwinn Itself, and as filed by most of the de cartißer.te are pronounced farcical. The report conclude* with a recognition of the difficulties con fronting the Municipal Commission and apprecia ten of taeir eflorts to correct abuses for which tt»ir predecessors were responsible. the results of this investigation have been much ', core Jar reaching and important for the city ser vice than has been popularly supposed. On Jan tar? L Secretary Berlinger. who had been kept in bit position by strong political influence, but of whose shortcomings as secretary the commission had been fully convinced, was removed, and a com petent man appointed in his place. Under prac tically every head dealt with in the report im provecier.is have been mad«. These can, better be ewlt with when we come to treat of the city eer vise as a whole. Is years past the newspapers have reported the ecUtciion of a fixed percentage on salaries from employe* In the state service In Albany for the coffers c' the dominant party. Our Investigations Isafi us to beliefs that these reports have undoubt edly been tru». The employes of some depart ment* hare been exempt from thl» annual tax. but tlwy have been the exceptions. The assessments have varied from l»i per cent for municipal cam piirns to 3 per cent for state campaigns. Despite the boldness with which this practice was carried en, and the indignation of the employes concerning it until recently none have been willing to come forward snd give evidence, on account of the gen era: and well founded belief In the power of the political leaders to punish them for so doing. The mist prominent officeholder connected with this MarlnMß has been Harry H. Bender, the pres est fisraJ supervisor of State Charities. For years it held the office of treasurer of the Albany City sad County Republican committees, which he has «n]r recently resigned, and secured an unenviable HjWtaflan for hip access in collecting campaign funds He formerly held the office of State Super ir.tKi(ser.t of Buildings, and during his incumbency the employes of the Capitol building were regular ly assessed. Governor Odell transferred him to hie present <sfflee in June, 1902. Assessments were col lected from the employes in his new office in the Jali of 1902 and 1904. Tie conduct of this case for the association has teen in the hands of Nelson 6. Spencer, of the executive committee, who has appeared at. bearings Mere the commission and has taken a. large share ft t!i» argument before the Appellate Division and to» Court ot Appeals. The committee believes the sitter could not have been In better hands. For tt.s f<?rvic<=, gratuitously given and involving a ei=siderable sacriflca of time. Mr. Spencer deserves ft* thanks of the association. - There have been no changes In the personnel of ■c Stste Commission during the year, and the eonnralitee is glad to report the continuance of those cordial relations which have made it pos sible fcr the commission and the association to work in harmony for the betterment of the service throughout the state. The service lias unques tionably been strengthened, and careful attention Is being given to the all Important matter of mak- Jag the examinations thoroughly practical tests. ■lie greatest drawback to successful administra tion is still the very large number of exempt posi tions, a matter which we hop« the present com mission will see Its way clear to take up and cor rect. The most Important matters which have arisen Jn the state service during the year, the classifica tion of the four additional counties of Albany Ifccroe, Onondaga and Westchester, completing the . . .■ siflcation of all the larger counties of the State. the restoration of a number of county posi tions to the competitive class, the continua'nee of the policy of investigating the administration of the law in cities, the Investigation of the New York City service, and the investigation of the violation <>r ihe political assessment provisions ot the law in Albany have already been referred to.

Mr. Cleveland' Speaks on the Need of Personal Service. Phllaaelphla. Hay ».lWlth ci -President Grov-r Cleveland as the presiding; officer, tha opening meeting of the thirty-third national conference ol charities and correction was held to-night In the Academy of Music. The large auditorium was filled with representatives of organisations engaged in charitable and correctional work la this country, Canada and Europe, and the ex-President was en thusiastically welcomed when he appeared on the platform. Mrs. Cleveland occupied a. box. Mr. Cleveland, who made the first address of the meet ing, spoke, in part, as follows: This national conference of charities and correc tion, in view of the object it seeks to accomplish, may well be described as a general clearing house of charitable and benevolent work. Through its constituent agencies it touches the individual, and through the betterment of the individual it serves the nation. As often as the poor and needy are wisely and properly fed and clothed, not only is human want and misery relieved and God's law of charity obeyed, but the grateful sentiment and the renewed interest in life aroused among the beneficiaries, together with the stimulation of sympathetic feel- Ing among the benefactors, brings them all within a closer brotherhood of good citizenship. As often as the sordldness of employers or the reckless selfishness and Indifference of parents are routed in the battle against the wicked abuses of child labor, not only are careless mirth and cheer ful health, the gifts of God. stolen from childhood, restored to the children of our land, but the nation regains the assurance that the embryo citizens thus redeemed will in due time be found among its sturdy, wholesome and contented supporters. As often as sad faced and forlorn orphans are gladdened by tenderness and wisely fostered and cared for. not only is the Father of the fatherless well pleased, but our country gains by so much as the promise of future thrift and usefulness is better than the degradation and vice threatened by the neglect of evilly surrounded orphans. As often as the dependent insane and mentally defective are humanely and kindly restrained, not only is the requirement placed upon those who have the least claim to charitable disposition fulfilled, and these unfortunates saved from the hopelessness of incurability, but society Is protected against irre sponsible tragedy, and the country is given the only chance It can have for the Improvement and restoration of submerged reason to sanity and mental strength. / As often as those who for transgression of the law have become convicted criminals are made to «*', that they have not been inexorably condemned to lifelong ostracism and resentment, and that a kindly hand awaits any effort of theirs for self reformation, not only will those who benevolently aid and encourage them be rewarded by an ap proving conscience, but they will save to the state many who can serve it well and will protect It from those who. once disgraced, are easily driven py .intolerance and angry neglect to a continuance in evildolng. My thoughts dwell upon the duty of Individual h . arl i y V In Jt "I* 18 * * n * hat »• done in discharge of this duty, whether done by Individuals or through governmental agencies, representing us all. may be said to rest In personal responsibility and may be traced to one source-a recognition of the fact that in th field of charity we are our brothers' keepers. The field is so large and the labor so delicate that none of us can secure acquittance without personal service. It is this element of personal service represented In this national conference that give, the occasion its greatest Importance and slgnin cance. I have sometimes wondered if those active in charitable work fully appreciate how extensively ■under the guise of charity schemes are put on foot that are either so illegitimately related to * T or so unimportant and impracticable as to abun daSuly excuse a denial of their appeal for aid and I often fear it is not realized as it should be" in charitable circles that these schemes are pre sented so constantly and with such Importunity and po often prove to be unworthy, disappointing or faddish as to perplex and discourage those willlne to give to sensible and properly organized charity It is thus that quite frequently all charitable move ments are discredited or prejudiced. I hope I will not be misunderstood when I say that better assurance to those willing to give to charity, and consequently the interests of the cause seem to be involved in the establishment Eome^ where and under some responsible auspices of an agency for the sifting and testing of enterprises claiming to be charitable— the end that the benevolent may have reliable guidance in determin ing how and where they can wisely and usefully give.

NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. THCRSDAY. MAY 10. l!>06 BTDDIHST PEER WEDS. Lord Mexborough Marnes Mrs. Claud Clerk. Lord Mexborough. who has Just 'ttut*^ his rela tives and friends by unexpectedly marrying, at Florence, the Italian born widow of Captain Claud dark (a distinguished Anglo-Indian officer who had charge of the education and training of the Ntsatn >f Hyderabad for ten years), is the only member of »he British House of Lords who baa made a public Profession ot Buddhism. In spite of this the wed olns; ceremony was performed by a Jesuit priest, the Rer. Father Joseph Strickland, the new Lady Mexborough. like her predecessor, betas; a devout catholic. Lord Mexborough' s first wife was a Miss v«etia Stanley Errlngton. sister of the late Lady cromer, and the last surrivor of the senior line of that hlstorto house of Stsnley of which the Earl of Derby ts a cadet. Lord Mexborough has no chil dren living, and the heir to his earldom is his half brother, the Hon. John Savile. The name of Mexborough is familiar to most American admirers of Kinglake as the most inti mate friend and travelling companion of that au thor, and he figures in his popular book. "Bothen." under the transparent pseudonyme of "Methley." the latter being the name of the principal country seat of the Earls of Mexborough. near Leeds. Built in ISSO by Sir John Savile. who was a baron of the Court of Exchequer under the reign of Queen Elizabeth, and the founder of the Mexborough branch of the Ba\-lles. it has been in the posses sion of the family ever since. One of the features of * h « stately mansion is a great gallery adorned with the emblazoned armorial bearings of the prin cipal families of the county of Yorkshire. It like wise contains a number of superb pictures by Bir Thomas Lawrence. Sir Feter Lely. Sir Joshua Reyn olds. Van Dyck. Rubens and Titian. (Mention should be made, too, of the queer old "powder rooms." These were a species of cupboard, a little larger than telephone booths. Into which men and women retired In order to be subjected to the powdering process. Very few houses have re tained them. Indeed, they are so scarce nowadays that even where they do exist their former use has been forgotten. Of course it is by no means impossible that the marriage of Lord Mexborough. who Is sixty-four years of age, may result in the birth of an heir to the family honors and estates. But. failing this, the succession of his half-brother to the title will constitute an addition to the number of peers in the House of Lords who have Jewish blood in their veins, for John Savile's mother, the second wife of the late Lord Mexborough. although she was a de vout Catholic and claimed to be of Persian de scent, was undoubtedly a Jewess, her father. John Raphael, haying; been one of the most respected members of the London Synagogue. Lord Mexborough is a man of wide learning and culture, and, like his father, has travelled all over the world. But. with all that, he allowed himself to be swindled not long ago out of very large sums of money by an ex-contict who styled himself "Captain" Cruikshank. among the other victims being the three daughters of the late Leonard Jerome, of New York, namely, Mrs. George Corn wallis West (formerly Lady Randolph Churchill), Mrs. Moreton Frewen and Mrs. Jack Leslie. Then, Instead of concealing his gullibility, he proclaimed it through the press to the entire world by ap pearing as a prosecutor against the swindler, and excited a good deal of irritation at the time in Eng lish society by insisting that another of his fellow victims, brother of a popular peer and former Cab inet Minister, was a confederate of Cruikshank, instead of ar. Innocent tool, who had been almost ruined by him. One of Lord Mexborough' s sisters is married to Walter Harris, who for years has represented the London "Times" in Morocco, and who has lately been playing an Important role in connection with the Moorish conference at Alge clras. The other sister. Lady Anne Savile. is the widow of that German prince. Louts of Loevensteln- Werthelm, who, after becoming Involved in a rather ugly scandal in London, and also after hav ing been sued by disreputable marriage brokers for declining to pay them the money they had advanced to finance him while he was seeking the hand of Lady Anne, suddenly vanished from Europe, to be found killed by American bullets, a year later, at the other end of the world, that is to say. In the Philippines, garbed In the distinctive dress of a Filipino rebel. Death, even in that form, was per haps the best way out of his difficulties, both for himself and for his family, for he would never have returned to Europe, or even have come to America. CANNIZARO HOUSE. AT WIMBLEDON. The new Lady Mexborough will find much to re call her native land of Italy in the beautiful sub urban place of the earl, near London. Canntxaro House, on the borders of Wimbledon Common, is one of the best known of those picturesque sub urban residences which, during the London season, are the scene of so many outdoor entertainments. It was there that Lady Archibald Campbell's pas toral plays, "Le Baiser." by De Banvllle, and "Fair Rosamund," were performed in the open air in the presence of the King and Queen, the place being owned at the time by the late Mrs. Leo Schuster, a popular London hostess. It owes its odd name to the fact that it was owned and occupied for many years In the eighteenth century by the Neapolitan Due de Cannizaro. who had purchased it from Dundas, the colleague of Pitt. The duke married Miss Johnson, heiress of a Lancashire cotton spin ner, and after living In great splendor at Cannl raro House with her they quarrelled and he de serted her, returning to Italy. The duchess fol lowed him there, found that he had become infat uated with an Italian princess at Florence, and after a vain endeavor to induce him to return to her. seeking at the opera to outshine her rival, she gave up the contest, returned to London and con soled herself with an Italian tenor. Society, how ever, was indulgent. Her wealth, her hospitality, and, above all. the magnificence of her concerts, caused the great world to close its eyes to her affaire de casur. She never saw her husband again and died a couple of years before him, in 1840. WAS KING EDWARDS MENTOR. A marriage which Is exciting much attention is that of the septuagenarian Earl of Mount Edg cumbe to Caroline, Countess of Rarensworth. widow of the last earl. Lord Mount Edgcumbe, in spite of his seventy-four years, is wonderfully well pre served, and in his youth was specially selected by the late Prince Consort, by reason of his perfect breeding, lofty principles ana extensive culture, to be the principal companion of King Edward when the latter was pursuing his studies at the White IjOdge. in Richmond Park, and elsewhere. In fact. Lord Mount Edgcumbe was the closest friend of King Edward's youth, aud he undoubtedly exercised an important Influence In shaping the character of his sovereign. With Queen Victoria he was natu rally a great favorite, and served her in turn as aide-de-camp, as Lord Chamberlain and as Lord High Steward. Every American who has touched at Plymouth on his way to Southampton, to Cherbourg or to one of the German ports a- HI recall Mount Edgcumbe. which constitutes a peninsula Jutting out into Plymouth Sound, commanding, on the north side, a magnificent v*ew of Plymouth. Davenport. Drake's Island and the wall of woods and hills beyond. while, on the other side, it looks out over steep cliffs to the sea. Perched on these cliffs is the man sion, a huge castellated affair, dating; from the time of Queen Mary, full of art treasures and of souvenirs of royal visits in modern and in ancient times, while the chief glory of tho place is its gardens, three in number, known as the English, French and Italian gardens. The English rejoices tn noble trees, ths Italian In fine terraces and the French In magnificent fountains. Still more interesting Is Lord Mount Edgcumbe's place in Cornwall, known as Cotehele House, a per fect type of Elizabethan mansion, which has re mained in almost exactly the same state as in the flays of the Virgin Queen. The rooms are hun« with superb old tapestries, at a foot or more from the walls, highly suggestive of the ease with which a any or sn assassin could "hide behind the arras." Both Mount Edgcumbe and Cotehele House have been in the possession of the Edgcumbe family stnes ths reign of Edward I. and even in those days the Edgcumbes were known aa one of the most ancient families of the County of Devon. Sir Rich ard Edgcumbe was knighted by King Henrj VII at the battle of Bos worth, which brought about the downfall and death of King Richard HZ. Sir Rien ard waa the chief of Henry'a household. But tt was Queen Anne who first conferred a peerage upon the Edgcumbe family, In the person of Richard Edg cumbe. who waa chancellor of her duchy of Lan caster. The late Lady Mount Bdgoambe bjbjb a sjsjss ox Lady Lansdowne. of the Duke of Abercorn and ef the Duchess of Buccleuch. The new Lady Mount Edgcumbe Is a granddaughter of the second Karl of Mount Edgcumbe and a cousin, therefore, of her present husband. Bbc must not be confounded with Emms, Countess of Ravens-worth, widow Of the second earl, who created so great a sensation a year or so ago by marrying her coachman, a nan by the name of James William Wadswortb. The earldom of Ravensworth. by-the-bye. is now extinct, but ths barony la held to-day by the last earl's cousin, formerly known as Arthur Thomas LJddell. MARQUIBS DE FONTENOY. UNION LOSES ITS CASE. Justice Dismisses Suit to Recover Money Lost at Track. Justice Amend yesterday afternoon dismissed the suit brought against the Westchester Racing Association by the Hcusesmtths and Bridgemen'S Union, Local No. &2, to recover $1,685 of its money which its former treasurer, F. P. Rasmussen, ad mitted on the stand he had lost at Morris Park hi the summer of 1904. The justice said there was not the slightest evidence to Justify the Jury in finding that the Westchester Racing; Association as suoh had received any part of any money wagered and lost, either directly or indirectly. The dismissal of the suit caused great rejoicing; among the sporting element of the city and was considered an important precedent. When the case was resumed Sol Liechtenstein, the bookmaker, was put on the stand. He gave aa account of the "bookie." his relations to the race course and the bettors. When the tesUmony was all taken Mr. Niooll. for the racing association, said that there bad been no evidence to show that the association had made any beta and moved for dismissal. Mr. Perdue, for the union, asserted that the connection of the as sociation with the betting ring had been established. Justice Amend, in dismissing the case, said: Under the revised statutes you have failed -en tirely to show that the defendant is a winner of the wagers made or the person to whom the money won was paid. You have not shown that he was the holder of the wager, and nothing has been brought out to show that the defendant was inter ested in the betting, directly or indirectly. There is nothing for me to do but grant the motion to dis miss. In recording his exception to the decision Mr. Perdue said: "It seems to me that we have shown clearly that the racing association is a co-conspira tor with the bookmakers In conducting a gambling place."

Milton Kennedy, the author of the American Railway Traffic Company's plan for the removal ot ashes In Brooklyn, testified yesterday before the aldorroanlc committee investigating the Street Cleaning Department. He conceived the plan In 18P7. providing for the removal of ashes by flat open trolley cars from centrally situated stations at night, he said. He consulted the Brooklyn Rapid Transit. Governor Flower and Anthony T. Brady. all of whom he said, approved the plan. Mr. Ken nedy said he was introduced to Perclval E. Kagle, ex-Street Cleaning Commissioner, by Senator Mc- Carren. The first bid for the contract of removing ashes In Brooklyn was put In in July. IMS. Mr. Kennedy said his bid waa 35 cents a cubic yard. Meagher. a contractor, bid S cents a cubic yard. Both of these bids were thrown out. and bids were readvertised for about two months later. Learning that his plan was looked upon favorably by the Street Cleaning Department. Mr. Kennedy made the same bid the second time, and obtained the contract. It was brought out that Anthony N. Brady financed the plan. He furnished $18.216 "« for the bid. and obtained control of the contract. A stock company was formed with a capital of SSQS.. 000. of whicU Mr. Kennedy had a 10 per cent share, and was appointed general manager of the com pany, with a salary of |7.|M a pas*. A different style of cars than those planned at that time were :ised now, Mr. Kennedy said. His 10 per cent share of the stock was cut to 3 per cent and his salary reduced to £.000. the witness testi fied. At this point William M. Ivlns. counsel for the committee, read into the record a letter written by Mr. Kennedy to Mr- Brady In which he said that he would resign, unless his salary was increased to 97.500 and his share in the stock raised to 15 per cent. Mr. Brady would not agree to this, but Mr. Kennedy did not resign. It was brought out that the company paid the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company 17 cents a car mile. The examination continued: The witness said he knew Luke D. Stapleton. who controlled twenty-four dumps, for which he paid $30,000. He said he knew Stapleton was In the Corporation Counsels office. Mr. Ivlns then read a statement made by Staple ton on the Kennedy contract before the Board ot Estimate, tn which Stapleton highly praised the contract. Kennedy testified that he had a written contract with Stapleton. and that he gave him notes for $5,000 each, spread over a period of fourteen months from October. 1902. The witness knew both Joseph Marrone and Mary Brown. He said that he waa to pay Marrone $30,000 a year for picking for five years. Kennedy said that five months' time wss granted him on his contract by Commissioner Woodbury and the Board of Estimate. Asked If Major Woodbury knew that Mr. Brady waa not furnishing the money for the contract, as he had agreed, the witness said he did, and that Mr. Woodbury considered Mr. Brady to be acting unfairly toward Mr. Kennedy. Mr. Ivlns read a letter dated May 29. 1908, frn m Martin J. Littleton to Kennedy. In which he said: I inclose the Brady letter, which explains Itself. I wrote him that tne $95,000 was added to meet political obligations which we had not supposed we would be obliged to pay until be put them on us. "Do you know whether Mr. Brady paid the $25,000 to Senator McCarren?" asked Mr. Kins. "I do not." replied Mr. Kennedy. "Did you pay it?" asked counsel. "I did not." replied the witness. Kennedy said McCarren never asked htm. for money personally, but wanted $£.000 through Brady, replied the witness. Adjournment was then taken until this morning. When ex-Borough President Littleton was seen yesterday afternoon with reference to the letter offered in evidence at the investigation, he said: I haven't seen the letter, and my recollection of its contents Is not exactly clear. In a general way I recollect that Mr. Kennedy came to me and said that he had a deal on with Mr. Brady, and he said that he was afraid from the way things were going that Mr. Brady waa going to take advantage of him. He wanted me to represent him and to go and see Brady. This I consented to do. as Mr. Kennedy's counsel. I saw Mr. Brady several times. It was while negotiations were in progress that Mr. Kennedy said to me that Brady had demanded $25,000 from him to repay certain political obliga tions. Kennedy said that he had not much money, and could not stand any such thing. I advised him to pay nothing, and to have absolutely nothing to do with any deal ot the sort. If Mr. Kennedy was prevented from paying over money on account of political obligations I have a right to assume that it was because I advised him. Mr. Littleton has been subpoenaed as a witness in the investigation. ( While Mr. Brady has not been subpoenaed, it is understood that he will give bis version of the contract negotiations. CLERGYMAN ASKS DATA. Wants Precise Information About American Tract Society Finances. The wave of financial investigation has struck the American Tract Society. At its annual meeting yesterday, in the lecture room of Madison Square Presbyterian Church, the Rev. Dr. Henry A. Stira son, of the Manhattan Congregational Church, who was a business man before he became a minister, demanded more Information about the financial condition than that submitted to the meeting. He was at once referred to a printed report, but, after scanning this, declared he was not satisfied. He demanded "figures." "precise figures," of the cost of the publishing business conducted by the society and the income from it. also "the precise Income from the Nassau street building." and a full report of all the methods of doing business. The Rev. Dr. George L. Shearer, the secretary, replied that the auditors had not completed their work and he could not at that minute giv« the par ticulars Dr. Stimson asked. The yearly report, supposed to cover everything, was In the "printed" summary of the year distributed at the meeting, and members wondered why the auditors furnished this financial report if their work was not supposed to be complete. Dr. Shenrer said the society was not in the busi ness for the money that was in it. but "to further th* Kingdom of GoJ.'" Dr. Stimson got up again and declared that hereafter reports should embody every Item of income and expense. LONGWORTHS RETURN TO WASHINGTON. CinctnnaM.
