Vtiliiic* Bill Likely to Become a
Committee Measure.
. By 1 SMSXSSa to The Tribune]
Albsr.y. April 22.— The Assembly Railroads
GsßVavtaßß wi.'i take up I!.e Publlo Utilities bili
agoin to-morrow and continue working st it for
Mm rest of tbe wreelc. Probably It will be re
f>orrea from Urn committee by resolution when
5t I* in final BaswjK. and be reintroduced as a
cwiitnittee bill. Many changes in phrati a o".ugy
>is>v<> been Ban*)* and many other changes are
contemplated, though non* which will Interfere
rxith dM stringent regulation of the public cer
•igs corporations.
It the Senate lisfJclsty Committee gets rti of
the Keisey case on Wednesday, as now B©e:ns
likely, it will take, up the Utilities bIU; ss Its
icrroflucers hope to have it in amended shape
bf-foro both houses sumo time next week. Little
difficulty is expected about passing It in the
Assembly practically as It rarr.es from the com
rr.Utee. retaining bath th« Mftlon limiting the
♦.•ourt review and that Kixlng the Governor ab
en!ut° power of removing the commissioner*.
la the .ate the court review will be fought,
but th« bin is likely to reta'n that feature. *•
the Oovernor wants It. Whether the absolute
rorriova.l provision v.ill be accepted by the Sen
ate 5s the point now BMWt In doubt. Some peo
ple hrre think that the looked for removal of
Superintendent Ifrlssj' will have such an effect
on the Governor's adversaries In the Senate
that they w iil not fight too strongly on this
point, since the governor ••> plainly announced
lii*« Vimra on it at Glens Falls.

Opposition from Catholic Clergy to
Marriage License Measure.
[By T«i«rsph to Tfc. Tribune^
Albany. April 22.-Bltter debate over the Cobo
bill, providing for marriage licenses In this
state took up th* entire session of the Senate
to-night, and the fight will be continued to
morrow, when the bill will be taken up again
as ft special order. Much of the opposition 1*
coming from Roman Catholic clergymen, who
fought the measure last year, when it was
Senator Gradv. who voiced the opinion* of the
Catholics, declared that the bill was dangerous,
since It took the marriage laws from the hand*
of the clergy. "I suppose this Is only to Www
the deep and abiding interest we take in the
affairs of other people." he remarked.
Senator Cobb retorted that hi* bill had the
indorsement of many Roma.i Catholics, while
the Protestant clergy were unanimously in favor
of it.
"They favor it." said he, "because under ex
isting laws we can do things In this state which
bring IB* blush of shame to decent people.
North Dakota is not half SO disgraceful With its
divorce laws as is this state to make It possible
for a minister to marry children to criminals
and go unpunished. . . .„,,,.
•Such marriages are performed hers dab.
the principals in many cases coming from other
states, v.here they could not get married. In
Binghamton. la.n year. there were 660 mar
riairca of runaway couple* from Pennsylvania.
Senator Cobb maintained that divorces were
due chiefly to Improper marriages, which the
rigid scrutiny of the principals resulting from
the adoption of the license system would largely
prevent: Senator Grady finally declared lie
wanted to amend the measure, and It went over
until to-morrow.

Will Ask to Have Convicted Pris
oner's Sentence Increased.
The District Attorney's office. It was learned yes
terday, will ask. for possibly the third time In its
history, to have the sentence of a convicted pris
oner set aside, that a heavier penalty may be in
flicted. The. prisoner. Daniel Sullivan, convicted or
robbery In the second decree, was sentenced In
General Sessions on Wednesday by Judge Crane to
*erve two months i" »he penitentiary, although tn«
maximum sentence /or that offence Is fifteen year*.
Judge Crane at first Intended to suspend sentence,
although iUvan had been convicted or a felony.
Sullivan was lecvlng the courtroom with "Jimmy"
Hasan the Tammany leader of Judge Crane's dis
trict, when he was stopped by Assistant District
Attorney Appleton. air. Jerome was called to the
courtroom, and objected vigorously to the sus
pension of sentence. Then Judge Crane feavo Sulli
van two months.
Attached to the notice of the District Attorney's
motion served on counsel were, the anWavlta of
five persons m show the previous bud record of
the prisoner. Henry Hynutn, or No. Sl4 Ea: 9th

Huntingtpn Stirred by Strife in Its
Old First Church.
Huntingdon. I^ong Island. April 2: < Special).—
From Cold Spring Harbor even unto Lloyd ■ Neck
the natives and the cottagers arc losing that
bored feeling and wondering what is going to
happen next In tho First Presbyterian Church
here. The choir has been regarded by many of
the parishioner* as a close corporation, with tha
organist as one of the leading members, but
yesterday there was no choir, and, after the ser
vice was over, no organist.
After tho morning service about half the con
gregation said, "Now we will have some good
music" The other half was equally certain
that th*» death blow to harmony anil melody had
been given.
For thirty-six years George H. Brock has been
organist of the First Presbyterian Church, to
which about half the congregation come* in
automobile* or smart traps, with livery be
decked servants Some of. those who have puns <
to Mr. Brock's accompaniment on the organ
have been the Robert W. de Forests, the Louis
C. Tiffany* and the families of George Taylor.
Milton L'Ecluse. Colonel T. B. Williams, Henry
de Forest and Morton B. Smith.
Only two members of the choir are nut rela
tives of Mr. Brock. The rest of. the choir eon
slats ol his three daughters, his three sons-in
law and one son. Of the remaining pair, one
is a sister o' another of Mr. Brock* numerous
sons-in-law. Mrs. Charles W. Colyer, the only
one outride the family circle, threw her lot with
them and resigned with the whole Brock family.
On April 1 Mr. Brock was Informed that the
opening anthem would please be omitted. As
this would shorten the services only from four
to klx minutes, Mr. Urock thought that some
Other reason than that lay behind the order of
the i?est«ion, so the Brock family decided to
strike. Not a word was said of th« plan by the
large feminine contingent, but when Mr. Brock
sal down before the organ and began to pull out
the stops there was no choir. When no pro
liminary clearing of throats was heard the con
gregation began to sit up and take notice. Mr.
Br ■■■■'r. finally started the organ, and the con«
gregatlon — that part of It n<u tr..> surprised—
did the Ringing.
After th«» service gossip h^gan before the la^t
pofll of the organ died away It Is probable
that the church will !>■• crowded next week!
but not by friends of the Brook family, nnd they
pro numerous In the congregation. Meanwhile
great efforts are being made to get a new choir
by next Sunday, so that the Brocks will not be
able to say, "1 told you so" when the new organ
ist etarts the pipes going for the. new choir Of
the old choir three have been singing In the old
First Church choir for twenty-four years. Of
the others, all excepting one have sung there
from eight to twenty ■•:■«.

East Side Cloak Manufacturers At
tacked and Badly Beaten.
Oscar Margolin and his son Samuel, who iiv*
lit No. 108 Madison street, are nuking badly
battered heafis because they declined to treat
With striking: employes yesterday in front of
the cloak making establishment of O. Margolin
& Son. at No. 20 L,;sponnrd street. The strike
has been on for several weeks, and the enraged
cloakmaker3 promised "to get even" with their
former employers when toe Margol'.ns refused
to grant their demands. So threatening were
the demonstrations they made in front of the
establishment that policemen were especially
detailed to guard the place and keep the strik
ers away from the Margolin* and the 'loak
makera who had replaced the strikers.
In some manner, however, a committee of the
striker.* succeeded In gat; Ing past the police
yesterday morning, and held up the Mnrgolins
.•is they were entering their establishment
about S o'clock. The senior Margolin said
he would not talk over the grievance with the
men on the street. Thl« stirred up the com
mittee, and the Margolin drew away. Harry
Silversteln, of No. 255 Division street, produced
an iron bar, which he bad concealed under his
coat, and swung it with great effort several
times .ii the elder Margolin's head. The other
member* of the committee Joined in. and the
crowd which had gathered took aide* with the
Detective* Colton and «.;ieas.>n, of 'he Leonard
street station, were Boweries* to protect the
member* of the firm until reinforcements were
called. Then, with two plain doth** men.
Hayes and Donahue, from the Leonard street
station, and Patrolman Doherty. from the
Church street station, hey formed a circle
around the employers, and attacked with their
clubs the foremost of the (shrieking strikers.
This gave the Margolin* a chance to take
refuge inside the doorway, and the policemen
made a sortie and gathered in the four ring
leaders of the mob. BtlTerstetn was taken to the
Tombs police court. where he was held in Sl.oO>
ball for the grand Jury on a charge of felonious
assault. Ilia tnree companions, Burnett Itemen
offsky, of No 8 Rutgers Place; Abraham LSSh.
of- No Ll»2 Cherry street, and Copeland Schu
man. of No. »70 Madison street, had been •«
badly battered about the head by the clubs and
butt ends of revolver* that the magistrate
thought a lino of *10 each wax sufficient addi
tional punishment.
Undaunted by the fate of their comrades the
strikers returned to the Margolin establishment,
and when Samuel Margolin showed his face In
the street later In the morning they trailed him
to his home. On the way there some "no threw
a brick which hit Margolin in the head. This
wan only an opener, for the strikers closed In on
the cloak manufacturer, and were treating him
far from gently when Patrolman Gardner, of
th« Madison street station, arrived and arrested
"Abe" Shapiro, of No. 208 Cherry street, and
Samuel Price, of No. 243 Cherry street. In the
Essex Market court. Margolin wasn't sure that
Price was one of those who attacked him. but
Shapiro was held on Margolin'* Identification
In JliOO ball for examination on Saturday next.
