ALl April 12Tho expected veto of
the Crosby High Lleonso bill was sont to the
Assembly tho first thing thin evening To
morrow would have boon tho last day and i
cot vetoed ton would havo bocorao a law
Tbo delay In vctolne It caused somo to sur
mlM that tho bill would bo allowed to booomo
n law Col I KIoo brought In tho message and
It was read by tho Clerk
Tim Assemblymen listened to the reading of
tho bill nnd n Bon ns the Clerk got to tho
tlgnnturo Mr Crosby jumped up nnd moved to
lay the veto on the table Mr Hhoohan de
manded that tho wholo of tho veto Including
thn appendix should bo road
The Hpenkcr would not listen to him and r
fused to allow tho appendix which included
the AttorneyGenerals opinion to bo rend
Ho put Mr Crosbys motion nnd I was carried
Tho veto was laid on tho table and tho Crosby
bill was formally doolareddead
I was recalled in the Assembly by Mr Ar
nold and other how they had urged Mr
Crosby not to allow the Insertion of tho Platt I
amendment on tho unconstitutionally of I
which the Governor laid special stress Mr
Arnold then prophesied that I Mr Crosby ad
mitted the amendment he would k his bill
The prophecy Is now fulfilled
Int message to the Assembly Oov Hill
cars that there a two fatal objections to this
bill which render Its approval impossible Its
provisions 1 far a they change existing ex
cise laws are only made applicable to Now
York and Brooklyn All tho other cities of tho
State are exempted from theso provisions and
the bill is thus rendered most objectionable
This the Governor bays was not done mad
vnrtontly but deliberately und intentionally
Fuithonuoro by fixing the minimum fee at
11000 In these two cities and leaving the
maximum t the discretion or whim of the Lx
clso Commissioners tho bill becomes unfair
and oppressive The recond objection to the
clearly measure uncoiiHiitutional is that a portion of its provisions are
I tho provisions of the bill wore regarded as
beneficial and not Injurious and were really
intended or extracted to promote the cause of
temperance says the Governor It Id difficult to
discover a valid reason for the anxiety to main
tain this discrimination against the protests of
ninetenths of the representatives of Now York
and Brooklyn GOT Hill further says
Bamusl J Tilden was lectd Governor ot this Rule in
1874 by more thin otxuu majority upon a platform
which xpraaly declared maJorU7Ifn uniform and
qultable excite lawn For many years this has been
the controlling and MCtled policy ot the Utate Licenses
have heretofore been regulated by a general law sub
unttally alike In I aU eutntUl partlculm a11
application o t every part of the State lut by the term
of iho propoied law rertaln acts which are perfectly
lawful the Interior are made crimes In the cities of
lotorlorl ae
Hew York anil Brooklyn For all other cities the maxl
mum ai well as the minimum llcf I nse fee Is prescribed by
stAtute bUt by the peculiar provisions of this I act only
the minimum fee U fixed for hew York and Brooklyn
It thus appears that the keeper < f a restaurant In clues
other than New keprt Brooklyn may ct pr
cur an ale und beer license and may at
the same a mI lawfully I keep on band In I
tohiestinit ignore while lu tbese two clUes the same
Set constitutes a crime and forfeits his license and
while In other cities be must pay Lot his liquor licence a
un not less than JJ nor more than 251 In these
cities he must not pay less than tluuiand as much
more u on Hoard of Exclie In Its discretion whim or
caprice may see fit t charge and this Irrespective of
the amount or extent of tbe buslues carried on by him
nee distinctions do not seem to be based upon any in
telligent Indefensible Just or equitable consideration and are utterly
The Governor argues that the Excise law
should be substantially uniform throughout
b uniorm thrulhout
the titate sUbstantalf Imposes an unequal
burden on tho citizens of the State which
though in name a license is In fact a tax I is
Intrinsically unjust for no good reason can be
shown why 1 heavier exaction should be im
posed upon the saloon keeper in New York
than upon tho salon keeper in Buffalo for ex
ample A license foo applicable to the wholo
Htate and based upon the amount of business
done and graded proportionately would not
be open t the criticisms suggested
The Governor concludes this statement of
his first objection to the measure In this wise
Those who voted for the psjsige of this Mil In the
Legislature must bare acted In Ignorance of Otl lI act
or else In the commendable desire on their part t rc
llevo tew ort and Brooklyn from the evils arising
from the great number 01 licensed places therein must
nave overlooked the greater danger at their own hOI
and will I appreciate the opportunity now afforded for
further and more careful 1 consideration of the subject
On tho second ground of unconstitutionality
Gov Hill objects to this clause which wits
Ahsembly added to the bill on the third reading In the
If any person having a license of the second or fourth
class shall keep on hand on the premises licensed fo any
Intoxicating liquors other than those permitted In hr 1
len be shall be guilty of a mUdemeanor und bin
license shall be forfeited uD
Tho clause provides no method of forfeiting
tho license a determining tho guilt of tho of
fender but assumes to act f Judge jury and
executioner by declaring him guilty and for
I felting his license without furtheriirocceillngs
Liquors being recognized by tho Constitution
as property their sale can bo regulated but
not prohibited and they cannot bo con
llfecated let this clause makes the mero
keeping on hand of liquors a crime
and this is 0 destruction of property
Guy Hill says that ho is advined by Attorney
f Genoral OJIrien that this portion of the bill Is
unconstitutional and exJudge George F Com
StOCk of the Court of Appeals concurs in that
opinion Their opinions are annexed to the
message I need hardly add the Governor
continues that I cannot be expected to ap
prove time Constitution a measure that In any particular violates
Upon tho propriety of high license the
Governor says ho expresses no opinion Tho
question temperance Is not a party question
yet It Is impOHslhlo the Governor states t
ignore the political aspect of the measure
specially where It Is well known that Its support was
made the subject of consideration at a party caucus of
a majority I of the legislature and where U ha been In I
geniously devised nnd peculiarly framed 1 as t operate
solely upon the two great Uemocratlu constituencies of
the Mate while Republican cities and constituencies are
exempted from Its burden

miles an hour carried tho flames over and
through the dry grass at frightful speed Tho
general destruction of property commenced
near Boscoo In Graham county Hero tho fire

The Grand Jury In Brooklyn yesterday
listened for two hours to tho details of tho mur
der of Lyman B Week In his house at 1071
Do Kalb avenue on tho nluht March 15 The
principal witnessed worn Mrs Weeks her
mother r Elllnizham who had hurried from
North Adami Mu In response to a tele
graphic summons Zora 1 Chamberlain of
this city who swears that ho saw John Green
well and Butch Miller In front of Mr Wockss
house on the night of tho murder and John
Baker and Paul Krause members of tho thlov
Ing BatiK who informed against Qreenwoll
Krause and Baker wore brought over to
Brooklyn handcuffed together Baker who is
the younger of tho two appeared Hushed and
excited out Krause the most stolid and
hardenedlooking rascal in the quartet soomed
to regard tho whole thing us 1 good joke
Only once did ho show 0 sign of disturbance
and that was when tho widow of the murdered
man dressed In deep mourning brushed past
him on her way to the jury room ills cold
gray eyes sought the floor and thor was U
visible tremor in Iris athletic frame
Krause and Baker repeated In tho Grand
Ttirv room the stories Imnllcntlnir Oreenwoll
Just what amount of truth there is in them
remains for subsequent silting Halt an hour
after all the witnesses had retired the Grand
Jury presented separate Indictments against
Grecnwell and Miller each charging murder
and burglary At 4 oclock Groenwcll wan sur

Kldgway who had gone to Now York to consult
with Inspector Murray on a new feature in tlio

his restless blinking little eyes on tho waters
beneath him Krauso and Miller are still de

What do I know about Brooklyn t Why almost nothing
scarcely know one street from another
Where was I on tbe night of March 15 t I cannot
really say but I suppose tI I mopped at the lodging house
at MMowcry The first I knew of the murder of Mr
Weeks was when 1 read It In I a German paper I was
never in front of Mr cekss house and never admitted
that I was the murderer
Kranse and Maker never beard me make a confession
They are deliberately I ll I Ing and lyIng I for some purpose
I had 1yt two revolvers In my life One of them tear
ned In Uermany and the other Inspector Byrnes snows
all about for he has got the pawn ticket for It
Tbls t a conspiracy on the part of Krause and Baker
against me My Idea is that they supposed 1a waa going
to give them away in the Jersey matter after I was ar
rested and thought they would get ahead of me to sate
themselves from two or three years Imprisonment
I used to wear a Prince Albert coat butt I exchanged It
about the Stfth or U7th of March for the one I am now
wearing It waa nol as Krouse and Baker say because I
was afraid t wear the coat for fear It might help to
Identity m t met a man In tho lodging house and he
askedme for the IMtice Albert coat as he wanted to go
and see his I girl r and I was very glad l to exchange with I
him especially a he gave meJlweutyOve cents which I
