Mr. Roberts makes a suggestion regarding

arocte a wide popular discussion and be de

Mints to tliu inheritance lax systems of Oreat

lafttsU a tax of S per cent, on estates of

10 per rent, on estate. t $-,000,000 and less
than M.000.000. and of 15 per cent, on es.

liittstem. If It had been In operation In thla

"Tills whole subject," Comptroller llnbert
ay." Is ono pregnant with great Import from
a public and pairtotlu point of view, and It I.
respectfully submitted to the sertou. consider,
tlnn of the Legislature."
Once more tho Comptroller calla attention tr
the large cost of legislative Investigations, and
suggests that a law be passed fMng a uniform
per diem rate for the payment of the expenses
of members of the Legislature when engaged on
urh missions. A. evidence that this matter Is
worthy of consideration, the fact la Instanced
that from 1R7I) toOu. t last, $8S.1,on4.nl were
expended for committee expense., exclusive of
contested election case..
Continuing, the Comptroller aaysi "And .till
another matter requiring special attention is
the expenditure of public money for the permit
nent improvement of prlvnlo properly. Tils
subject Is given prominence now by teasnn of
tbefuottbat while the Letflslaliir la striving
to find emplotment for the Idle convict. In
the State prisons, and has enacted by chap,
ter 42P. lawa of 1RPH. that, o far ns
practicable, the public Institutions of tho State
hall be supplied by articles tho product of
prlsou labor, the managera of the Northern Now
York Inatllutrona for deaf mntea declare th
law not applicable to their Institution, and
that they do not want to uo tiritnn.mads
tuff. The Altorney.Ueneral Informs me
that they are rlgbt tn their contention,
for tbe reason that thrlr Institution Is a
prhatennr. Uy chapter U1U. I.awa of 1887,1 he
sum of 40.000 wa. appropriated tn buy a sit
and erect buildings for the Northern New York
Institution for Deaf Mutes, and $.17.47.1 has
been expended upon it since, making a total of
$.7.47.-1. The fact Is, practically all the money
required for tb land and buildings haa been
furnished by tbe Hiato, yet tho title la In a
private board of trustees.
"As regards tho Society for the Keformntlnn
ot Juvenile Delinquents on Ilandnir Island,
tho Stat has already expended ?547,o50."5 for
rirmanent Improvements and btrranu, and
understand ibal an appropriation ot S34.1S0
will be asked for thla year for betterments.
Thla property I. aim owned by a board of prl.
vat ttuntese. ln my Judcmeut thla la a rats,
taken publto pollc). If these Institution,
are to b steady recipient of Stat
aid for Dermanunt Improvements, th title
nf the properly should be transferred to the
Mate, ns whs done with the Immensely valuable
properties In New York and Klngawfien those
countlea were brought under the Slat Car
act for tbe pauper Insane. I would, therefore,
respectfully suggest that nil appropriations for
these Institution, other than for maintenance,
be withheld until the title of the property I
transferred to the Mate."
Itegartllng the tax on racing associations, Mr.
Itoherlssat that ho la having difficulty in col
lectlng It, since tho nsoclallune contend that
legnlly they cannot be taxed on the entry fcea
paid upon dorses to be rated, u bile he believe,
they legnlly should be taxed In this respwt.
Mr. Itoberts rails attention In the great In
crease In thn cost of the Stato printing, pointing
nut that It has Incrcas'd from Jli.l.OU'S.iil, In

Alhanv, Jan. !M. The capitalists Interested
ln Assemblyman I'arshair. bill, allowing canal
transportation companies to have several mil
lions of dollars capital, expect that theA.sem
hly committee to which it was referred will give
a hearing on Thursday afternoon on the meas
ure. Th bill Is In the interest of the Consoll.
dated Canal aud Lake Transportation Company,
In which Kraaius Wlman and Western flour
manufacturers and capitalists are interested,
Mr. G. II. llasmond of Iluffalo, who Is con.
nected with tho company, lays the bill should
be luvored by nil those who are Interested In the
suctessnf tho btitle ritual system. In referring
to the objects of the rompany, he satd :
"Our tompany wl.hea to build forty.two
boats this year on a model never before used on
the cannl. b'lllt especially far tba flour trafllc.
We hate made contracts tn rarrr a million
barrels of flour a tar through from tbe West,
while In 1KU5 only tMU barrels were shipped by
canal. The rompany will iilso erect warehouses
for packuxo freight ut New York mid lluflalo,
and If our plana are successful we t III bring an
Immente through freight traffic from the West
to the canals In addition to our flour shipments.
Laattenrahm was passed by tne Legislature
providing that latial navigation companies
could not have inoro than SVi 000 capital.
Th l'arhall bill seeks tn rirvivu thla
limitation. The HufTnlo Canal llnalmen'a
Association opposes the i'arahall bill on th
ground that our rompany wnutd gain control nf
all the boats on tbi ranul and secure a monopoly
of ciinal traffic. '1 In-ideal absurd. This a,
rorlatlon now controls 1,000 boats, valued at
$.'.000,000. and liu a monopoly nf tbe grain
trafllc. This association controlled canal rates
last )ear. and the) were then double what they
were tbe tear vrttlnua. 'I here Is no reason why
our efforts to bring traffic to the ranala should
be restricted by limiting tbn amount of carltal
that our company may employ. If we cannot
secure sufficient capital under our New York
Slate corporation sr shall he compelled to In.
corporate under tho lawa of soma other State."

of the present session nf Congress remain, and
this fact has Impressed upon tn managers of
the House the necessity of mora vigorously
pushing the appropriation bills yet remaining
to b considered. It was stated yesterday by a
member of the Committee on Hules that the
Agricultural nnd Indian bills now on tho cairn
dar would bo the principal Items ot huslness on
tho programme this week, Thcso hills, although
carrying comparatively small sums, usually
give rise to moro debates than other, on tbe
list. The seed distribution provided for In
the Agricultural bill I. sure to evoks
criticism, and thn Indian school question cau be
relied upon to occupy a day or moro of the time
of th House. The Indian bllt further contains
the provisions of the bill reported two or thre
weeks ago lo abolish the offices of Indian Com
mlsslonernnd Assistant Indian Commissioner,
and confer their duties on a board of Commla.

point of ordor, but is more likely to be tb occa

bill agreed upon by the conferees will bo pre
aented to tbe House to-morrow, and tbe advo

expecting Gov, Griggs to send to th Senate to
morrow night th name ot Secretary ot Stat
Kelsey's successor. Until two week, ago Sena
tor Edward C. Stokes of Cumberland county
wa. popularly believed to be slated for th
place, built turn, ont that th Governor had
never beon consulted by Senator Htokes'o
friends, and he surprised them a few day. ago
by the Intimation that Stokes was not to be ap
pointed. The Governor has not revenled his In
tuntlons, but from the fact that he did not send
to tho Senato Inst week the nomination ot
George Wurt. of I'aterson lo be Hanking and
Insurance Commissioner, tho politicians aro
predicting that Wurt. wilt be mad Fee
rotary of Stato. A jcar ago bis nam
was mentioned for tbe place. With
Wurta's promotion It Is believed th
Commlsalonerslilp of Hanking and Insurance
will go to Camden, probably to William Mettle,
who la n member of the Ilepubllcnn Hlntu Com
mlltee. The CommUslonershlp pnya $4,000 a
) ear, with but very tlttlo work. Tho Secretary
ot State get $0,000. It Is believed tho Gov ornor
wilt nlso send tn the Senate tho reappointment
of Ilemiet Van Sycket as Justice nf the Supreme
Court. Tho principal objection to his reappoint,
rnent Is based upon tho polltlrnt grnund that It
will keep tho Supremo Court Democratic and In
the eventof tho adoption and ratification of thn
Jmllclarv amend moot to the Constitution It will
eventually place Van S) ckul al the head of tho
court by virtue of his lung sorvlce.

The Central Labor Union became wildly In
dlgnant )eslerday over the report, ot the dele
gates It had sent to tbe tbree labor conventions
held recently In Albany. 1 he conventions were
those of the Slato branch of the American
Federation of Labor, tbo Worklngmen's.Nate
Trado Assembly, and the Slate Congress of tho
Knights of Labor. The C. L. I, delegates had
been Instructed to bring about an amalgamation
of th three bodies if possible.
Delegate Harris for the State branch nf the
American Ft deration of Lalor and Delegate
Ilausch for the Worklngmen's Slate l'rade As
sembly reported that these two organizations
were In favorof consolidation. John F. Mabcrof
the Liberty Dawn AssocUltotj.rfhnun.Uioitclc
gatc to tbe Knights of Labor congress, reported
that tbn proposal to amalgamate had been re
jected with contempt by tbe Knights.
" Ihe) shouted uut that I was n traitor when
I made Ibe tnutlou." he said. " All tbe Kulghls
ware angry nnd one mun said thai I ought lo
be tired out nf the window."
Maber menllnnid Delegate Hick nt District
Assembly 20.1 as being particularly opposed to
the motion, some of the Knights declared that
theC. L. 1'. had no right to aeud a delegate In
the congress. "A man came to th hi ad nun r
tera of our association," added Mitber, "and
declared I would tie killed If I made tho report
to the I'. I I'."
Deli gate Farley of the Hexagon Labor Club,
a Kmght of Labor, nald thai he was ashamed to
hear such a ruporl concerning the Knight.
Oilier delegates thought thai Maber might
hare exaggerated limners. Delegate Parka,
who waa at Albany, said that lllcka was not in
the hall at all when Maher'a proposition was
made. Then II was proposed to print the report.
. but some of thcdelegatesdemurrrd.aaylngihat
1 It would reflect Mat er's nplnlons instead of tho
i proceedings. Other declared that they believed
I Maher wa telling the plain t-ulh. Among the
latter waa Delrgalo Fitzgerald, who said-
"Would tn Uo-I thai the floodgates of hell
would open up and burn those vt ho aro opposed
lo consolidation "
This produced a profound Imnreaslon, nnd thn
union finally voted to allow thirty days for th
printing of all three reports. It was also de
cided that the C. L. I', shonld be mi lit guard
against professional labor men who are after
political Jobs.

"We, Catholics of the Sioux Nation, most re
spectfully and humbly ask and beg of tho
Untied Stales Congres,now assembled in Wash

ask this becauso tho money deposited for us In

tho reason that the money la nura we
are of tbe opinion thui you ought tn
let us have the choice of schools, as we wuul
and like to have t bom. either In our own

schools, religious or counsel schools. We no
not oppnso the Government schools or school

We want our children to be taught nnd be

want you lo grant our petition. Please consider

It is very likely that Congress will pay no at

Till! JtEVII. AMIISO THE HAVTIST3.
l'arana Potter flnda Another Clergyman
to Kspeuse Illn Cauae,
The Iter. Dr. Lelghlon Williams, pastor ot the
Amity Uaptlst Church In West Fifty-fourth
treet, inserted himself into the Itev, I). C. Pot
ter's Tabernacle Church row yesterday. The
Amity Church congregation, at it meeting
last Wednesday, passed resolutions of sympa
thy with UiiTaliomaclooingregatlon because of
Its lost church building, nnd, at the suggestion
of Dr. Williams, It directed him logo down and
preach a sermon to tho Tabernaclo people. Tbo
Tabernacle people, stnoe their church waa sold,
went tn the Welsh Congregational Church, on
East Eleventh street, and Dr. Williams called
on them yesterday and preached a sermon to
them on "1 he Christian Armor." Among other
things he said:
Such dlfllcultlea aa younlnone form or an
other are Incident to tliu history ot tne Church
of Clirl't. It I not a contest with men. good or
bad: it Is n rontrst wltb power nf evil and
methods or wiles of Ibe devil. For tbls contest
you need the divine armor. Slander has done lea
work: prejudice und not prool has condemned
you. This has been the first step lu ) our trouble,
and It baa been wrought by good men. seeking
a good end. and yet It l.u. beeu accomplished by
the method of the dot 11. re.dlnesa to believe
evil, and willingness to take the popular and
wealthy side
Who are ) our real antagonists? Not the City
Mission Society, not thu men who compose It.
nor the churches sympathizing with them, but
tb spirit of scandal monccrtng. readme to
bellev eovll of a brother minister of Christ, on an
unprnv ed tale, desire to beon thu populirand
winning side, and willingness to clo evil thai
good may come Tlie dements of spiritual
wickedness In high places, even among good
men. are your real antagonist.. I would not
caiettssly linpjte hujo motlvci to my brethren,
but wrong Is to hedennunced most emphatically
when ll I perpetrated by good men for what
they deem good ends, and a wrong, a great
wront, has been done, nud I denounce It pub
licly and challenge denial.
First, the mortgages hate been used to effect
the very thing they were Intended tn prevent
namely, the sale und transference of the prop
i rly. Vndrr the ttrma of those mortgage the
property must again bo gold aud the proceeds
invested In other securltlc. Iho society must
have overlooked thl fact, fnr they are negoti
ating with a prominent evangelist to earn u.1
work in your church building aa soon as they
gain full possession of ll, l warn him not In
coma. It would be seeglng to glorify Ood wltb
tbedevll's wage
Secondly, under a claim of less than one hun
dred thousand dollars they have stripped the
church of property or more thnn double that
value and hold a deficiency Judgment over you
besides. My friends, those nre not tho methods
of Christ, but of Satan. I repent, your antago
nists are spiritual w ickrdness in high place, and
tbe mi thud nf the devil.
lint you have to ask youraclv es a second ques
tion. How shall you resist these antagonists''
I answer, first b rcullring the true nature nnd
Importance of the struggle lnwhlih you are
engaged. You nre the victims of Inlluencea In
fecting not )oureliea only but our whnlo de
nomination 1 he corruption of dependenrn
nn wealth is everywhere among us It haa
ruined you. The rnmu sad history will be re
enacted elsewhere on a broad scale unless) our
manful fight gives others tbe needed warnlnr.
Amity Church fought out line bnllle thirty
years ago. Our denomination lenders are ver i
lly o-ullty In this respect with few exceptions,
lhey think they aro building well, but ll Is to I
their ruin and confusion of face. It Is your pnrt
to stand so llrnily and maintain tour cause so
consistently and convincingly that they will bo
forced to houl tho lesson.
Along wild this subserviency In wealth gees
a centralizing tendency. 'I his tendency ts de
stroying the Indt'lt'lideiicn of tho smaller
churches, nnd forcing them to disband or )leld
to outside dictation. I could mention a score ot
instances In thl city. As ) on bear )iurselvra
thla larger controversy may In aomo mesuru
depend. Ther hope ou will disintegrate. Ills !
appoint their hopes. Stand together and rally
round your pastor. '
