When I am eoBfronted with any fnets whloh require ex planation I will bo heard from. "I will "kn occasion, however, to refresh the public memory of a fow works Inaugurated anil successfully carried out by the Publlo Works Department during Mayor Btrong's ad ministration. The Tammany Hall poultloe eavement on Eighth avenue from Thirteenth to Fifty-ninth street, which cost $3.04 per square yard, with a straw bail guarantee of maintenance for llf teen years. went all to pieces and had to be relald by us at great expense. Tilth and Madison avenues for the first time A have been sewered, and one-third of the aost of Lr the aewers on Madison avenue has been paid by the Metropolitan Traction Company as a eonrfderatlon for the permission given thom by . m to change their motive power. ! "For fifteen years the lower part of the city has been Buffering for lack of fresh water sup ply because no political city official had the temerity to rip up Fifth avenue and lay the pipes. The pipes were laid, however, during i he Btroiin administration, fifty millions of gal lons per diem carried down to the tenement districts, and the surface of tho streot repaved with tho best asphalt pavement in the world from the Washington Arch to Harlem River. The lhiulevard from Sixtieth to l'25th street iris a disgrace to civilisation for lack ofjthojex penditure of a fow thousand dollars, but now it Is a driveway of great attractiveness. "First avenue from Twentieth street to the Harlem Bker waa perhaps the worst paved street In the world. To-day it Is one of the best, and takes care of muoh of the eastern traffic which heretofore waa forced into Fifth avenue. Park avenue from Fifty-ninth street north was an unused street before I became Commissioner of Public Works. Look at it to day. It cost only $240,000 to make a great Mghwuy of a oo-oalled street In whloh the grass had been growing for a quarter of a century. My engineers said It would cost a million and a Quarter. "look at Long Acre Bqnare and try to re member what it was two years ago. look at the improved electrlo lighting and the re moval of the old unused gaa lamp posts which for years had disfigured the streets. "If the charge Is true that the price paid for asphalt is too high, what shall be said about its cobt before Mayor Strong came Into ofllco. when prices were 30 per cent, higher? To compare our prices with those paid by other cities Is the merest Inonsense. Unless the trnfllc is exactly similar, and the guarantee of maintenance Is for precisely the same term of years, no comparison can be made. For In stance, Fifth avenue, over which 18.000 vehi cles pass daily, cost nearly $5 a square yard ; while 126th street, over whloh perhaps less than 500 pass, cost only $2.53 for exactly the same pavement, while in London the first cost Is $3.0.1 per yard and 25 cents per yard per an num for maintenance, which aggreg ites 7,3S per squnre yard. '"Vhen asphalt was first Introduced into this elty competition was opened to all the world. Tammany Hall, however, restricted bids to particular brands of asphalt, which enabled the contractors who owned these dep.isits to make their own prices, and this was the con dition of afTalrH when Mr. Drooklleld and I came into office. We it once called together all the people who wero willing to compete on fair terms, and this meeting resulted In such a modillcutloii of the specification as produced honest rivalry and low prices. The decline in the price under my administration is not a Biatter of guess or conjecture, as the follow ing com parisous" of the. different "prices will demon stnito, the character of the pavement In each case being tho sauio and the traffic precisely similar.

The Board of Kstlmnto nnd Apportionment continued its consideration of the budget for IMS.', yesterday morning. The estimates of the Departments of Health. Police, and Buildings were taken up. The Department of Health asked for $1,271,207.50. an increase of $283. 040.00 over last rear. Col. Michael 0. Mur phy. President of the Board of Health, waa called upon to tell why he wanted so muoh more for 1800 than he bad for 1808. He wasn't particularly successful : in fact, he didn't know the amount asked for until tho Mayor told him. When he heard that the estimate called for an Increaso In the appropriation of $283. 040.00 Col. Murphy exclaimed: "What! More than $200.0001 Why. $50. 000 is enough for me." "What do you mean. then, by asking for over $200.000V" asked tho Mayor. "Don't you know what your estimate calls for?" It then came out that Col. Murphy has been HI and that his chief clerk and assistants had prepared the estimates. He had not carefully examined them. The first Item was $12,000 for salaries In the Sanitary Bureau, Col. Murphy was asked to explain this. He did his best. but. shed no light on the subject. Fl nnlly the chief clerk of tho department. Mr. (lolderman, stepped up to Ool. Murphy and tried to help him out. "I think ftcan explain this to your Honor." said Uoldcrman. "Who ure you?" asked tha Mayor. Oolderman told the Mayor, who thereupon -ordered him to write a letter explaining the item. The Item for salaries for ganltnry police was objected to on the ground that those men were paid by the Police Department. CoL Murphy rose to the occasion here. Insisting that the Item be passed. He said that yester day morning's reports showed that there was not n quart of poor milk purveyed In theolty. and that If tho record was to be maintained the sanitary police must be maintained. The Item was passed. Bernard J. York. President of the Police Board, was on hand to look after tho police estimates. The hoard asked for $12,021. 000.40. as against $11,350,144.02 for 1808. Mr. York explained that a good part of the money would havo to be spent In paying In creased salaries for promotions on the force. He called attention to the fact that all the Brooklyn policemen had been raised to the grades of tho policemen of Manhattan, and they would havo to be paid accordingly. Pres ident Ouggenbelmer callod Mr. York's atten tion to the fact that ho was asking for more money and more men, and then he asked: "Do you think that the public parks are bettor policed" or more orderly than they were bo- lakin "The parks are policed about 1,000 per cent, better than they ever wero." "There don't appear to be so many arrests, remarked Mr. Ouggenhelmer. "That's because people liable to arrest keep out of the parks. The policemen on duty In the publlo parks now do something else be sides chase sparrows." replied Mr. York. Mr. York asked for money to pay tarenty additional matrons of station houses. He said the matrons were now getting $720 a year. The Mayor said they ought to have $800 and the Item was passed. Coming to the Item of $100,000 for a new station house in Long Island City, the Mayor began to ask questions. He wanted to know why the one now used would not do. Mr. York told htm tho police station there now was in a building parts of which were used for other purposes. He said a police station must be a prison as well as a barracks for the men. and a building used for that purpose should be used for noth ing else. He said he know of a site that couli be bought for about $12,000. "Twelve thousand dollars I" exclaimed the Mayor. "Why. plenty of good lots will soon be sold over there for tnxes at not more than $3 apiece. And $100,000 Is too much for tho building." "Well, give me the money." said Mr. Y'ork. "and I'll have a two-story building completed in ninety days."' "What's the use of talking such rubbish?" testily nsked the Mayor. You know you can't put up a $75,000 building and have it ready for use in ninety days. Make that Item $50,000." An item providing for sixteen new police launches at $5.00o each caught Mr. Uuggen helmer's eve. He inquired about It. Mr. York said that the launohes now used In pa trolling the harbor were worn out and now ones were needed. "Don't you think you could get nlong with the old ones?" asked Mr. Ouggenhelmer. "Certainly," replied Mr. York. "We can get along with them, as you might woar a shoe whose solo was worn out. You might get along, but you couldn't do much walking." The further consideration of the police es timates was put over until to-day. and thees timatesof the Building Department wero taken up. Thomas J. BraaV President of the de- fmrtmeut. asked for 1365,080, an Increase over his year of $01,850. Ono Item called for tho increase in the salaries of the Superintendents of Buildings from 13.800 to $5dKl. "Strike it out 1" ordered the Mayor. Mr. Bradv also asked for 128 more Inspec tors than last year, nine stenographers, and ortv-eight messengers. "Nine stenographers!" exclaimed the Mayor. "That'H enough to do the work of the Corpora tion Counsel's office, and forty-eight messen gers would be enough for the Huprcme Court. We'll take those Items up again, iwd some morning soon. Mr. Brudy, I'm coming up to your office to see what you do with forty-eight messengers, l'leaso have them all on band." Tho board adjourned until to-day.

Coins, Too Others Tteaent His Action The New York Btate Oommandory ofthe loyal legion banqueted last night at Delmon Ico's on Forty-fourth street. When Col. ltooso velt. who had been Invited to attend tho ban quet, began to speak, some of the members left the room as a protest, they said, against bringing politics Into the organisation. The Commander. Oen. Dodge. Is in Washing ton, and the Vice-Commander, ('apt. Henry (llnssford. formerly of tho United Btatcs Navy, presided. Oen. Martin O. McMshon was the speaker of the evening, and, taking as hl subject. "An Unlucky 8hlp." related the vnrl otis misfortunes which followed the United States ship Chess penke during the wnr of 1812. While Oen. McMahon wa speaking Col. Roosevelt came Into tho banquet hall and Im mediately all eyes were turned toward him Col. Roosevelt was ushered Into tho hall by Oen. C. H. T. Collls nnd was seated near the entrance. At tho conclusion of Gen. MeMahon's speech Ool. Roosevelt was escortd to the part of the hall reserved for guests and waa Introduced by Capt. James Parker as the rough rider from Santiago. Ool. Roosevelt spoke briefly, mentioning the bravery of Oen. Chaffee, who was also presont as a guest, and lauding the servloe whloh the regular armv had rendered to tho country. In conclusion, he said that It would be an evil day for the United States when they unlearned the lesson to be true to themselves nnd to the des tiny brought forward by tho guns of Dewey In Manila Bar. During Col. Roosevelt's talk Col. Asa Bird Oardiner. District Attorney, got up from his seat and left the hall. Oen. Charles ft Bnrtlett. U. 8. A., and sovoral others followed Col. Oardi nor out. Col. Oardiner walked UP to sovernl reporters and made the following statement: " Next to Col. W. C. Church I am the oldest member of tho Now Y'ork Btnto Commandery of the Loyal Legion, hut In nil the years that I have been a member of this body I have never before to-night seen a banquet of tho commandery turned Into a political meeting. Col. lloosc volt was brought In by Oen. Collls and ought to have quietly taken tho seat assigned to him and remained as inconspicuous as possible. In stead of that ho has been placed on t he platform and received an excellent opportunity to make n campaign speech and he bus grasped the op portunity. It was bad enough to bo brought in by that man Collls. whom tho Mayor of New York city has just had occasion to severely score, and I and the Orand Jury are not yet through with Mr. Collls by a long shot. "I am going to leave this place at onco; It Is an outrage to tho Loyal IgIon." When the news of Col. Gardiner's departure became known much Indignation was ex pressed. . , Gen. Collis said: "I had a perfect right to bring Col. Roosevelt here to-night us my guest. There Is not a single thing out of tho ordinary in that act. Col. Gardiner nas done n very fool ish thing in leaving here to-night and It reflects no credit on him. I brought Col. lloose velt hero to-night because ho is a typical American citiEcn and a typical Ameri can soldlor. As far as Col. Roosevelt's speaking about politics is concerned, he has not done so to-night, nor would he. Cnutlon in his esse was unnecessary because bo is In stinctively a gontloman." m Gen. McMahon said: "Col. Roosovelt Is a guest of tho 1 .oval Legion to-night, and as a soldier ho was asked to tell us about Santiago. Thore were no political references In his speech and Col. Gardlneris notjustlfled in the position he has taken. Mr. Roosevelt is one of the twenty guests tho number is always the same invited here to-night and there Is no tiolltlcal significance In his presence, a the Loyal Legion is as a body non-partisan. Col. Roosovelt re ceived his invltotiou to be present before ho was nominated for Governor by the Bopubllean pnrty of New York Stato." The members of the Legion gathered In knots about the room after tho banquet nnd discussed the affair. The general opinion was that Col. Gardiner had no good reason for his conduct, and that ttn. Colli" bud acted In ac cordance with the rules of thcordorln inviting Col. Roosevelt to the platform. Col. Roosevelt apparently took no notice of the departure of col. Gardiner and his friend. Tho same thing Is true of the mombersof the Legion in general. They listened attentively to every word of Ool. Roosevelt's speech and at its conclusion applauded enthusiastically. oao of inrixm.Eiis nabbed. It Operated on the Lines of the Talentlne Mrl.Rughlln Gang. Capt. McClusky.

The question as to the real condition of the Tradesmen's National Bank, of whloh Na tional Bnnk Examiner Kimball took posses sion on Tuesday, was still unsolved yestor day. The developments of the day. however, tended to show that since Ilnnk Examiner Kimball pnssed tho bank as solvent nt the ex amination which ho made In July, largo loans had been made. In exchange for notes se cured by such assets as the stock of tho Wool Kxchange and the New York Wool Warehouse Company. It was said thnt at the time Mr. Kimball made f-Ulast examination tho bank was al ready '.ho holder of S80.000 or tftO.000 worth of Snvynr, Manning A Co. paper, which firm failed in February, consldernblo .tirfffe Pub lishing Compnny paper. $2).IXK) worth of J. M. Brown A Co. paper, and other paper of concerns In tho hands of receivers or In finan cial difficulties, but thnt after that time loans for about $:15(),000 had been obtained from the bank for the other Macnnughtnn Interests, for which the collateral was 4.0X) shares of the Wool Exchange. Mr. James Macnaughtan said yesterday: "I have nothing to conceal about the bank's affairs. Every depositor will get 100 cents on the dollar, and the stockholders at least (HI per cent. What Is called tho impairment of capital has been eausod by the malicious statements of Boston concerns, whieh have found their way Into print hore. "I think the Clearing House Committee did not treat mo fairly. A day or two before the oommlttee appeared here I spoke to one of Its members and asked him as a bank officer and as a favor to provide us with cash for some of our bills receivable. What did he do? Ho went straight to tho other members of the committee and reported us as In a condition which required Investigation. The next thing I knew the committee oame up to examine the affairs of tho bank. "I still think the examination of the Clear ing House Committee Incomplete and Its con clusions unjust, and I believe that the bank oxr.mtnor will be able to show to the con troller that we are not In the plight our ene mies would like to convoy. Make no mistake. This bank is not going to liquidate. We have plenty of offers of help, and do not propose to close the Tradesmen's Bank at the behest of a fow alio would be glad to see us go out of tlnnnclal life." The developments of the day turned atten tion to tho New York Wool Warehouse Com pany, as the value of Its stock may have much to do with tho settlement of tho bank's af fairs. "Tho Macnaughtons." said a man who Is in a position to know, "are tho sole owners of tho New Y'ork Wool Warehouse Company. They conceived tho scheme of forming the Wool Ex change nnd through It of bringing tho wool trade from Boston to New Y'ork. Thoy owned tho site of the present Wool Exchange, which they sold to the Wool Exchange when that con cern was organized two vonrs or more ago. It was Intended then that the whole of the Wool Exchange building which was nut tnken up by the Wool Exchange and the Wool Club should bo occupied by tho Warehouse Company for storing wool. For this purpose the building was framed to carry 250 pounds to the square foot of floor space. The Warehouse Company was to make advances upon wool nnd carry It in storage until it could he sold to consumers. From the beginning. I am convinced, the com pany hns been losing money, and that this Is the whole source of the present trouble. "8o far ns tho Wool Exchange is concerned. It Is a good concern. The capital stock Is $1,000.001, divided into 10.000 shares of $100 each. Two thousand five hundred shares of tho stock nre still in the treasury. "Tho Mncnauglituns held 5.500 shares. Of I these the Tradesmen's Bank now has 4.000. The shares were Issued at 50 cents on the dol lar. The design for the building wus changed to an office building. Two floors are now m1 eupled for storngo by the Warehouse Com pany nnd are packed with wool, and tho Ex change has part of tho first floor and all of tho eighth floor. Tho rest of the building is now rented for "nough to pay a g'xxl commercial rate of Interest on tho whole Investment. The building cost between $1.000.MM) and $1,100.001 and was mortgaged to the Equi table Life Association for (080,000. That mortgage was reduced to $500,000 last spring." 1'he stock of the Wool Exchange held by the Tradesmen's Bunk was taken on a valuation of 50 cents on tho dollar, and if the estimate of the mull just quoted is correct It may be worth $200,000 or more. A week ago ten shares were sold at auction by Adrian II. Mai ler A Son at 02. although the iiuoted vuluo then was only 82. Yesterday forty shares were offered by tho same firm, but there were no bidders for it. The value of tho stock of the New York Wool Warehouse Company is considered mora doubtful. The company was organized under tho laws of the Stale of New Jersey with a capital of sl.ooo.uoo. How much stock was issued or what the assets are could not be leurned yesterday. The intimate relations of the concerns run by the Muanuughtans can be seen by compar ing tin lists of the directors. tin July 1 the bank's officers and directors were ns follows: .lames Maenaughtan.
