Tho Tnmmany loader then drifted lo his local issues and said: "The Republican reformers nro for closing everything excepting tho streets. Tbey keep them wldo open, except for traftlc" Mr. Croker laughed at this conceit, nnd re pented it as though ho liked the sound of It. I Mr. Croker laughed nt the report that Bird S.

Ho planned the abbat tolr from a poor French system, and so Im proved it that It has gono Into general use. ln this country, nnd is of tho groatest utllltv. Ho Invented, perfected, nnd put into prnctlco new dovlces and principles ln the treat ment of animal matter. Ho found droves of catto passing along tho streets and highways, greatly endangering Ufa; slaughter houses scattered all about nnd great nuisances whero tbey existed. All this h'o changed by making largo storago places for cattlo where thev wore received directly from the cars, and then slaugh tered in ono placo with tho greatest cleanliness and enre, nnd tho dressed product transferred ln tho oaslest manner to tho points of consutnp lion. In this business he Invented and put Into practical uso the live-stock car, for tho transpor tation of animals from the far Wost to the Eastern cities. In thoso cars animals aro fed, watered, and transported with case and comfort to themsehes. In 1871 ho was eloctcd to the Stnto Senate, and served through the sessions of 187 J, 1873, and 1871.

Two of llio Hotel Cmploiers InjuredEire trie Light It Ires Ilroben nnd a, Fire ' Caused at Iba Ilottom or the Elevator Shaft The Llclits In the Bestntirnat Put Out. A pastcngcr elevator In tho Hotel Waldorf fell jistirday nftcrnoon from tho seventh to tho ground floor. Tho right leg of Mlrhaol Clark of 2.10 Fast Fortj -third rlroel, who wni ln chargo of tho car, was broken. Paul J.

Quiet soon followed, how ever, ns Iho hlazo amounted to but little Tho car which fell Is nua of threo lust off tho coirldor hading from tho Fifth avenuo entrance to tho olllco. It Is nearest tho dining room and is known as No. 3. Shortly after 4 o'clock Slhubcr, who was on tho tenth floor of the 'hotel, slgnallicl No 3 to como up and tako blm down. Clark responded and ran his i nr up without unythlng wrong occurring. Having token Hchubcr aboard ho set his lever to return. Ho says that tho car slnrted down moro rapidly than usual. Accompanying tho iiicrcnuil speed thero wns n peculiar grating sound. Clark was frightened. Ho shnvod his lot cr to a central position, expect ing thus to shut off tho power controlling the action of tbo hydraulic pumps In tho basement and bring tho car to a stop. Instead of stopping, tbo car, which was then at tho sixth floor, gnvo a sudden bound up the shaft. It wont perhaps ten feet. Clark and Schubor wero thrown to their knees by the shock, and before they could say Jock Robin sou tho car ban started down the shaft with frlriiifu spovd. It struck tho bottom of the i shaft on a lovol with tho ofllee floor with a shock that doubled the, Inmates up and knocked the breath out of them. The terrlQo crash was heard lu all purls of the big hotel. Tho llgbta in the restaurant wont out. The few guests there at that hour aroso ln alarm and ran Into tho crowdod corridor. Exclamations of fright and surprise were beard on all sldos No ono knew for a moment what had happened Then thcro camo a cry from tho olevator shaft, nnd thcro was n rush In that direction. Clark had struggled to his feet and wns calling , for help UU right leg was broken and help less nnd his face w us polo as death, but he was 1 able to tavcb thu cntc h on the msldo of the ole I vntor door and open it. Ho was helped out, I and then Schuber was picked up and curried to a settee. At first It was feared that ho was the more serloiislc Injured of the two Ills face was covered with blood, and the shock to his system bad boen so severe that ho was I scarcely conscious Ho recovered rapidly, however, on being taken to his room ln the hotel. Clark was conveyod to Bollcvue Hos pital In on ninbulnncc. While tbo victims of tbe accident were balng attended to, n, new danger aroio. A sizzling and a sputtering eouli be heard beneath tho tKiitom of tbo car, and soon mioke and flames began spurting up An alarm of tiro wus sound fd, and tno clatter of the engines as they whirled up to the hotel added to tho excitement. Tbo , lire ln Itself amounted to littlo and was soon extinguished It was cnusod by tho break ing of elcetrle light wires When the car crashed agn'nst the bottom of thn short it near- , ly knocked the bottom out. A faldc floor had ' been built here. It wus heuvilv braced, but such was the Impact ot tho falling elevator that It wob punched down a foot. On the other sldo of this floor, which formed the idling of the basement, ran a number of wires. The floor s displacement broko them and caused tho trouble. Tho elevator car was badly wrecked. Tho mirrors on the sides wrro broken to bits, and a pleco ot tbe glass cut Bchubur ot or his right eye, causing tho flow of blood Tho elevators of the Waldorf are all Insured ln tho Fidelity and Casualty Company, nnd are lnspcetod monthly The lnt Inspection took place Sept. 28. 1 ho management of tho hotel now has in ils possession a certificate sltrned br 11. P Knllmnn, chief Inspector of the Fidelity nnd Casualty Comiwnj, declaring that the cables, guides. ahou.ves. overhead timbers, and RHfi.tv ATmllAni -h had nen nTAtrilnml hv In spectors MrCrulso and McCurd of tho com pany, and found to be In perfect order. The elovAtora wore put In bv tha Whlttler Ele ator Company of Boston. They are run by hydraulle power. Him each one is roised b) four ttrel cables three-quarters of an Inch Indiana eter. Tbo snehorago for these cables is In the basoment, tog thcr vth thecvllnderan pumps. An examination of tbo cables nfter the acci dent showed that all four were broken. Ono was snapped as clean ns thnugh It had been cut, within an Inch of the anchorugc The other three were brokon Irregularly, each at a differ ent distance from the anchorage, but within a foot of It. Tbe small cable, by means of which the lever In the car shut oft the power, was also broken. 'Iho piston In the cylinder bead was drawn In to tho full, as when the car Is at tho top of the shaft under normal conditions. Alth ugh supplied with safety clutches, these dovlces evidently did nut servo thecar. Clark said last night that he did not think tbey worked ut nil. A former ofllcar of the Whitt'or Machine Com pany said last nlgbt that the Waldorf elevators were equipped with the Baldwin safety appli ance. In construction." he continued, " the appliance is simple, but it can be absolutely certain of stooping the fall of n car only hen tbocables aro broken between thecar and the sheaves over which they pass at tho top of tho shaft. Tbe absolute failure of the safety appliances to work without their having been tampered with makes the accident to this elevator, per haps, the most serious and disquieting of any th it has over h ippened to n modern pas senger elevator in this city. 1 1 wus not possiho to learn at the Waldorf last nlftht what the conclusions of the experts who exnmlned tbi wrecked car wore, for although Assistant Engineer Joscnb poller and men from the Insurance compnn) examined tho whole lot of mechanism connected with tho working of thecar, their findings and conclusions were not mado nubile. In the arrangement of the elevators ln the Waldorf the hydraullo cylinders for con venience are plain1 along the englno room celling horizontally, instead of, as Is usual, being placed vertically brsldo the elovntor wells. The cylinders nre Inrge In dinmoterand short, nnd the elevators whhh run to the tenth floor havo their c ables rove so Hint the car travels ten times ns far and at ten tlmeu the speed of the piston rod that works it. Attheond of tbe piston tod Is n pulle blink which travels hack and forth In guides, snd this i oiitslns flee sheaves, each grooved for the four lopes wblrh go to the cur. At tbe other ind of the path of this pulley bloi k is another similar one. Tho fuor hoisting ropes were mado fust at one cud to Hie1 wnll of the building oppnsllo the travelling bloik, and Hassedover and over this and tbe fixed blork ve sep crate times, then the) wont up to a set nf turning sheaves nt the top of the elov ator woll and down to tht car. If the elov ator man a description of what hap pmud to the rnr Is correct, what seems to havo occrirrcu to the hoisting appliances Is this; 'I he hoisting ropes gave way at the end furthest from the ear and, held hack, as they wore, by tho friction of passing over tho various sets of sheaves, Insteud of dropping tho csr directly, they uncollul themselves with In creasing speed, and let tho car go down at a con.tantlv iictu erited rate, Iho slipping of the ropes around iheshevves would liiirninadii thu grinding noiso whiih was houid. 'Iho shutting off ot tho power had probably nothing in do with the Jump of tho cur. This would have hern caused hnd tho loosened ends of the ropes suildrnb wrapped about each other, or somo other object, and, for thn moment, eoascd to run out. The ear thus checked would have rebounded, and Hn n, In Its free fall hack to tho point of rebound, striking with Its full weight nnd groit vcloeltj upon tbo ropes, cllhor freed them oi carried them nway iiltngntlui, It was nt thn moment when tho cur bogim tne.0 m fast lis in uiiinii cinru that the uifctr c luti ho' should have been aut'imntliull) foI. ifthoj Mcioof n proper modern design.

Oct. 8. Whllo tho regular meeting of the Cabinet held to-day did not re sult ln any Important action, It had an Interest ing bearing on tho Cuban question. There ar Indications that tho Administration does not In , tend to allow tho Spanish Ministry to postpon ' consideration of tho situation in tho per I turbed island until next March without a pro test or something more emphatic from tbo United States. Tho announcement In Madrid yesterday that this policy had been determined on met with bcv ere criticism by soma of tho members of McKlnlc) 'sofllclal family, and ( developed a feeling of hearty Americanism that will undoubtedly bo productive of doclslvs measures b) the President to bring tbe war to a close if tbe present Government of Spain per sists In its reported intention to delay the pro posed Cuban reforms or thwart the desiroof this country for somo speedy settlement. Ac cording to trustworthy authority, the President and his Cabinet aro convinced that the Sagasta Ministry can do something to araeliorato tho condition ot things in Cuba without resorting to wbnt they consider tho temporizing expedient) of calling a general election to determine tbo political character of a new legislative govern ment. Minister Woodford has expressed to tha j Spanish authorities tho earnest desire of Prcsi ' dent McKlnlcy that tho inhuman concentration order of Weyler, by which thousands of non combatants aro forced to remain in tbo largs owns where food is so scarce that many aro dying of starvation, bo revoked, and the suffer ing people permitted to return to their farming nnd other means of livelihood. This request, 10 was maintained at lo da) s meeting, can bo complied with at once, nnd does not require submission to tho Cortes, It was also held that the delay of agasta in recalling Wey ler did not show a sincere Intention to stop tho butchery of tho Cubans, llio members of the Cabinet bcllev o that Sagnsta can iuaugu I rate his proposed reforms Immediate!). They think that a nun Cortes, with a Liberal majority, will not bo ncccssury to accomplish tho reported purpose of tho present MlnlMr) of granting ac tual reforms to Cuba. Thocxchango of views at 1 the meeting showed an agrcoiucnt between President McKlnlcy nnd his advisers that flvo months was too long a postponement of the con sideration of questions which havo required settlement for two years What action will bo taken cannot be torctold nt this time, even b; tbo President mid tho Cab inet officers. Ofllcinl ronllriuutlan of the re ported pollc) of tho bagnsta Miiiistrv has not been arcolred and tho Administration will bs obliged, ncccssarll), tu await confirmatory ad vices from Minister Woodfoid before adopting a new lino of procedure. Nothing hns rum from Gen. Woodford since his despatch an nouncing tho foimation of tho now Spanish , Ministry, and this nbsenco of news encourages tho Presidont to believe that tho polio of delay ' hnB not been definitely adopted. 'Iho Govern ment knows nothing to confirm the Information enblod from Madrl 1 that an uuswcrwlll bo given by Spain to Minister Woodford's note on Oct. 2.r but thcro is a belief ln ottleiul circles that it is true. Tho state of nffairs prevailing in Havana, where members of tho volunteers nro parading thestrrets shouting tor tbe letcntion of Woyler. was also discussed at the Cabinet mooting with rcferencu to tbo safety of Americans In tha Cuban capital home fear was expressed that tbo riotous demonstration ot tho volunteers might cuuso an nlluck on thu I'uitcd States Consulate General, but Mr, Springer, who Is acting ns Consul Gcnrrnl In tho absence of Gen.
