The rrcililoiit of Sotoilt Welcomes
the Dalesalaa-A Helen of Harmony.
Tweaty-flvo thousand women of New York
puts Tore represented by delegates yesterday
In tho meeting at Mendelssohn Hull. Tho
fourth annual convention of the State Federa
tion of Women's Clubs met In harmony at 0 A.
M. and separated In peace at 9:30 1'. 31. Not a
ruffle marred the even flow of the programme,
and It ook as It tho dovo of peneo has maiked
the convention for Its own. a
Upon the platform sat eomo of the bout-known
clubwomen In the country. Thero wan Mrs.'
William Tod Holmuth In tho President's chair:
alo (n a very bticomlns cown no less a per
aonace than theFro.Identof tho Gonernll'ed
eration, Mrs. W. B, Lowo of Atlanta, On.. at
beolde Mrs. Holmuth. Mrs. Lowe Is what may
be literally caJlod a reprosentatlvn woman, for
the stands as the loador of ornr,n hundred
thousand women In this country llotli Mrs.
Helmuth and Mrs. Lowo aro a credit to club
women. Thoy appear well on the; platform,
have eood voices and can say what ther want
to without wnstlng words: rather unusual
feminine accomplishments.
The honorary President of tho Rtnto Federa
tion. Mrs. J, 0. Croly, Is abroad now, but there
wero many faocs almost as familiar as hers Is
to club wo mo n. Thore was Mrs. JennloDola
M. Lozlcr. Mrs. DIralcs T. 8. Penlson. Presi
dent of Sorosls: Mrs. IUisboII Baxe, Mrs. Mart
ana Chapman of Brooklyn and tho Itev. Phoebo
Hanatord of this city. Others on tho platform
wore Miss Anna Maxwall Jones. Miss Eliza
MacDonnld. Flushing; Mrs. M. II. Northrup,
Mrs. E. 8. Jennoy and Mrs. Mary T. Leaven
worth of Syracuso : Mrs. Ida K. Church of Wolls
vllle. Miss Marlon Carpcntorof Illon. Mrs. 'Will
lam Goulnlock of 'Warsaw, Miss Carollno Hills
of Blnghamton. Miss Myrtilla Avery of Albany
and Mrs. Philip Moore of St. Louis.
I All of these well-known facos and many
others wero scoured In porpotulty by n pho
, tographer, who appoarod with his camera and
; fliahllght. This was ono of tho most exciting
4 incident of tho day, nnd other emotional
crises occurred from time to tlmo whon a
pocsetboolc or ralr of Rlasos or something
' else was reoovered from tho flotsam and jetsam
of tho hall and advortlsod from tho Platform,
lor the most part, howovor. tho procrommo
; went on its way without a break. Tho mooting
was called to order at 10 o'clock, and. after a
prayer by tho Her. l'hcebo llanatord, Mrs.
Benlson. Troslaent of Sorosls, woloomed the
aelecates. Hhe said In part:
"The name and tho plcturo of Father Knick
erbocker have lone boon familiar; but Mother
Knickerbocker, with old-fashioned modesty,
has kept In tho background. Moro than aquar-
, ter of a century aico sho vlowed with constor-
patton the organization of a woman's club In
her household Itut as sho watched Its prog
ress consternation turnod to conQdonoo and
oonfldfDce to admiration, until to-day, with a
womiii'i club In ovcry room of her spaolous
mansion, from its basement on Htaten Island
to Its attic bovond the Bronx, sho comes for
ward to weloomo the co-workors of her daueh
ters. 8ho opens to yon hor house, her arms,
her heart. All that sho has. has had. or over
expects to have is yours.
Isolation, of whatever kind. Is Intorpstinir.
and not the least interesting has been the evo
lution of the women's clubs from oeolstlo to
altruistic. Naturally, at llrst they woro devoted
to self -onl tu re. But as soon as ther found
themselvos vortebrntcs they becan to dlfferen-
' tiste In their aims, untllto-day, whorcvor tbcro
Is a wrong to bo rlffhtrd. the woman's club Is at
the front as a reforming factor. The inlluence
of worn on forages has been beyond computa-
I tlon. Well may tho world ask- tho quostlon
placed by the novelist upon tho angel's lips:
Whither goest thou?' And we answer that
we have created, not a l'rankonstoln. but it
beneficent cenlus whose mission Is to banish
1 vies and ignorance."
5 Mrs. Uelmuth. as President, replied. Among
i other things she said:
i "In the early days of our club development
the sneers and jeers of tho press and publlo
J wero hurled upon ua day by day. The desire
j to understand and apply at least a few of tho olo-
' meutsot parliamentary procedure was looked
, upon with derision. But scarcely a quarter of
1 a, century has passed and women liavo obtained
positions that have astonished tho world and
provod beyond cavil the equality of the sexes
before God and man In their efforts for higher
-development along the lines 0f human progress.
If "No aim Is too high .for women. Theyput
I forth their hands and endeavor to granpevery
tood thing, ilut let us not. in looking upon the
great attainments we have made, forget our
many weaknesses and temptations. Let us
take neediest wo fall."
The chief interest in tho morning session
was aroused by a motion to raise tho annual
dues to $3 per club. This was rendered noc
.essary by the Increase of dues payable by Stato
federations to tho General i'ederntlon. In
piteot the President's clear statement of tho
ease, woman after woman rosoto Inquire, or
protest, or advise, until finally Mrs. Theodore
Bntro. by moving tho previous question, res
cued the convention from what promised to ho
an interminable debato on whothor to pay $3
or 2 60. Tho higher assessment finally car-
Rrled.butia tha baok of the house there were
beard many murmurs of discontent. Indeed.
one delegate got up and warned tho convention
that the federation would lose many clubs by
taking the step, but thoro was not the slightest
I friction over tho matter.
Mrs. Lowe made a llttlo speech which hit tho
i pail on the head. and. unquestionably, helped
tongss the motion for a larger assessment.
; ..Tbe General Federation." said Mrs. Lowe.
, has become of so much importance to tho
women of America and of tho world that It Is
I n,.i?f er willing to be an object of charity.
Hitherto we havo had to draw a treasury from
the outside In order to holdthe biennial meet
ing, behave had to look to wealthy women
for personal donations. This Is not n proper
attitude. We ought to pay our own expenses."
This declaration was enthusiastically ap
plauded by the audience, nnd so was a subso
Qutnt announcement by Mrs. Lowo to tho efTeet
that a by-law has been added to the constitu
tion of the General Federation, giving "repre
sentation according to tnxation." Horetoforo
a club has been allowed only so many dele
gates, whether it numborcd 20 or 500. In the
future, with an assessment of 10 cents per
capita, delegates will be allowed to clubs in
proportion.
The afternoon session was onllvenod by an
other speech by Mrs. Lowo: In adlfferent gown,
py the way, from tho ono she wore In the morn
log. Hhe said that tho past work of clubs hos
wen formative: tho future work must bo unl
irlng. Sho naked for suggestions as to tho
Datura of the next biennial mooting and Miss
Harriet Kcysor rather electrified tho audience
or a flery little plea for tho women to take up
sociology.
, "Maybo you don't know." sho said, "of tho
trrlb e strife which Is going on right now and
i here In regard to tho ladles' tailors. If tho
jronieus clubs of Now York would do nwny
with the sweat shop hero In this city well,
"ley mlcht sit down und rest forever after."
..' Vomp.n looked a trifle scared at the. In
'roductlon of-such a concroto ldun as a ladles'
tailor into their lofty altruistic generalities,
but they recovered and gave Miss Koysor
uesrty applause.

?Inillun Avenue Itrslilent Appenl for l'ro
trctlon for Their Angoras.
Dr. II. W, Mitchell of 747 Mndlson avenue
was summoned to the Yorkvllle Court yester
day afternoon to explain what he know about
the'Antl-Cat League, which was tupposod to
bo responslblo for tho death hy poison of sav
eral cats In his neighborhood. A number of
the doctor's nolchbors were In court and they
had a lawyer to represent their cause.
"What wo want to know, your Honor,1' said
;h lawyer. "Is whether the pcoplo on tho blook
In Madison avenue between Hlxty-fourth and
Blxty-Dfth streets are going to koep whatever
peta tho law allows them and not have them
poisoned by tho Anti-Cat League."
"What's that?" Inquired Magistrate Meado.
"It's a cat exterminating society whloh be
lieves that one dead cat is worth a '.hundred
live ones." the lawyer answered. Br, B. W.
Wiloox of 740 Madison avenue was called to
'Hviie'n I moved In next door lo Dr. Mltcholl
two years ago." ho said, my neighbor callod
on me and said he wanted mo to join the Antl-
Cat League. Ho said all tho people on the
olook belonged to It and It, was a rule that none
of tho poopla should keep cats. I told him I
hnd a Ana Angora and did not want to part
with it. so I could not loin the league.'' ,
Ho addod that he understood that Dr. Mitch
ell was President of tho league, but ho learned
that there were several families living In tho
blook who had pet cats and would not join the
exterminating soiloty. It was only, recently,
he explained, that tho society had begun on
ictlvo warfare on oats. His handsome Angora,
was poisoned two weeks, ago and since then
two kittens were pottoifbd. A cat and two
klttons belonging to Mrs. Murray, who llvoa in
tho house the other side of Or. Mitchell, went
also poisoned, he said.
"Do you. oharge Dr. Mltoholl' with poisoning
them?'faskod the Magistrate. . .
"I stated tho case to the Society for the Pre
vention of Cruelty to Animals." be answered,
"and thoy have made an Investigation. I have
no positive proof that Dr. Mitchell poisoned
them, but I bolteve he could tell you all about
the operations of the Anti-Cat League." ,.
E. N. Loavy, tho voterinary surgoon for he
Cruelty to Animals Society, said that the cats
had been poisoned with oarbollo acid.
Dr. Wilcox said that he had nothing to do
with poisoning the oats. lie Bald he hod no
connection with the Anti-Cat Loague. The
Magistrate dismissed tho complaint.

The Republican Candidate for Governor In
New Jersey lias a Narrow Sscape.
Foster M. Yoorhees. the Republican candi
date for Governor 'of 'New Jersey, had a narrow
escape from being run'down'on Saturday nfght
by nn Erie Railroad express train at the west
om'ond of the Bercon tunnel. Mr. Yoorhees
had attended a meeting in Englewood and was
on his way to fill an engagomentin Rutherford.
In order to save time it had been arranged that
he and Congressman Fowler and Chairman
HcEenzle of the Bergen County Republican
Committee should alight from the Northern
Railroad train at the tunnel Instead of going to
the depot in Jersey City, and wait thoro for
an Erlo train which would take them to Ruth
erford. The train-had orders to stop for them.
The only, light at the place was f urn ished by tho
lanterns carried by the railroad employees who
wore moving about the mar.o of tracks. While
waiting for the train Mr. Voorhees started to
go across the tracks. One of the railroadmen
shouted a warning cry: Look out there,
you're on the main track! Look out for the
train 1" Mr.v Yoorhees stepped back quickly,
and a moment later an express train whizzed
by nn the track on whloh he had been standing.
"You came 'very noar making it a cinch for
Crane." remarked one of Mr. Voorheos's friends
after the party had recovered their breath.
''It was a narrow miss, I admit," replied Mr.
Yoorhees. who was less agitated than any of
the others.
The Rutherford train came along a few min
utes afterward and the party boarded It. Mr.
Yoorhees made a rattling speech at tho meet-
Ing. and his audience did not know how near
io had been to death a short time before.

Klteflyer Eddy Makes Some Interesting Ex
periments Near the Big Statue,
William A. Eddy, the klteflyer. sont up yester
day three manila paper kites, each six feet In
diameter, on Liberty Island. Susponded from
one of tho kttcstrings was an electrlo collector
five Inches square, mado of wood,covored with
tinfoil. To this collector was attached a copper
wire running to within a few feet of the earth.
The potency of the collector waa determined by
the sparks sent out from the earth end of the
wire when It wan brought almost Into contact
with another wire attached to a ground plate.
Mr. Eddy was assisted In his experiments by
Horgt. Thorson of Company D, Fifteenth Min
nesota Yolunteors. Mr. Lddysald;
" We sent tho collector nbout 200 feet above
the base of tho Statue oi Liberty. The Jlrat
spark was drawn from the suspended copper
wire connected with the collector at 11:15 A.
M. I was surprised at this, as I supposed the
immenso bronzo figure would absorb all tho
electricity in the air nround it within a radius
of many hundred fcot. When we took the kite
line within thirty feet of the statue the electri
cal action almost ceased. Then whon wo took
the colleotor 500 feet from tho mass of bronze
the sparks Increased In force and frequency.
The electric notion was greater than that de
tained ntBnyonne with a eollector'four feet In
diameter. I iudgo from my experiments that
the seven splkoslu the crown of the statue will
protect from lightning an area only about 200
lectin diameter."

With Vl Axuln-ltovlvMs of the Operatic
"Romen nnd .Inllet" nnd Many Oilier
rihys-AttnlUCUIrn's Debut InVnmlevltla
Finish and delicacy have never boon con;
apleuous qualities In tho performances of the
Castlo Square company. Their absonco was not
always notlcoable In tho lighter operas. The
dramatic strength of suci a work as "Alda"
forced them Into a plaosot secondary value. The
strenuous theatrical nature of "II Trovatore "
and " Carmen " made tho lack of thoni tolerable
to a certain degreo. But Gounod's "Romoo
and Juliet" demands throughout tho shade and
not the color. Its sensuous monotone loses tho
little variety It possesses whvn the singers ad
here to mediocrity from boclnnlng to end. The
sturdy gonlus of Verdi In his uarllor operas
and In "Alda" has a Are that does not demand
refinement nnd polish to reveal It. It can rise
In a measure above the interpretation. But
that Is not truti of " Romoo and Juliet." nor In
deed of "Faust" Tho singer must brine some
thlngmorothanearnostness, good Intentions,
or even voice to the task when such a work Is
to be sung.
Tho performance at tho American Is desti
tute of nearly evory element that Is essontlal
to even moderate sucocss with Jho opera. It
meets no standard, Unless It be that which
claims no hfghor purposo than the presenta
tion of classical works at popular prices. Tho
value of that mission has long bocn doubted.
But It can probably be answered best In tho
afllrmatlvo. Tho chorus shows Its usual
oQcloncy, and the material features of
the performance aro as commendable
as usual. Yvnnno do Trovlllo Is a
more graceful and comely Juliet than
the oporatto stago often seos. But the familiar
waltz song demands greater technical skill
than she possesses, and so does tho rest of the
work. William Lavin was not nn alluring
Jiomeo. as his repressed demeanor nover varied.
William Btewort and Harry Chnso wore capable
enough. The general result was not encour
aging, howovor, nnd " Romoo and Juliet" Is not
for the Castle Square company, Thn opera
nevorgalncd popularity here through Its own
merits. It nas always made Us appeal through
the skill of tho Interpreters, and until thoy
were the best in the world its vogue was slight.
Julia Arthur and "A Lady of Quality" are
with us again at Wnllack's, and there Is no
chango In tho actress or the play to noto. Tho
merits lie almost altogether In hor vivid im
personation of tho girl who begins a tomboy
and becomes a murderess. To MIhs Arthur
must bo credltod, too. an outfit of neenory
whloh illustrates Mrs. Burnett's story boautt
fullv. "In Bplto of All" Is tho wcok's drama
at the Columbus. It Ib tho late Steclo Mack
aye's adaptation of "Agnes." which Vlctorlen
Sardou .wrote twenty-six years ago for Agnos
Ethel, who enacted ita heroine a hundred
times at tho Union Square, whero It was tho
first piece brought out by Albert M. Palmer.
It was subsequently used in Paris undor tho
title of "Andrea." The Maokayo vorslnn was
given at tho Lyceum in 1886 with Richard
Mansfield, Bellna Dolaro and Mlnnlo Maddorn
Flske in the cast. BtiU another free transla
tion called "Anselma," by Leandor Richardson,
proved valuable. In the present reproduction
in Harlem tho heroine is played by Una Aboil
with correct tasto and genuine feeling. "Con
fusion." n. farce brought forward from the Fifth
Avenue of a dozen years ago. Is being per
formed with spirited humor at the Murray
Hill, where tho stock company is distinctly
above tho average of those that glvo cut-rate
performances. The casts aro in most respects

which were prettily sung, and for onco "coon

Miss Claire was entirely satisfactory, Trat the

ways, whllo his principal left the stage be

XVas Jflned S10 Jult the Nnme.
A glgantle Rooerelt button, fully two Inches
In diameter, adorned the coat lapel of James
Meagher, ownor ot the Ad el phi Hotel, at 470
West Twenty-third streot, whon he appeared
before Magistrate fyol In the Jofferson Mar
ket Police Court yesterday afternoon ns the
defondant In an assault case. "Jimmy"
Meagher is known to ovcry politician and to
most other persons In tho Ninth Assembly
dlstrht as n stalwart Democrat, He was a
delegate to tho Dornoorntlo Stato Convention
ot ltftX). an aspirant to a legislative nomina
tion at tho hand of tho same patty In tho
same yi'ar, and ho Is at present an nctlve mem
ber ot the Pequod Club of tho Ninth Assembly
district. Magistrate Pool I a Republican.
The appearance ot Mongher and hi button
created a sensation In court. Clerks stared
and tho pollodmcn engaged In whispered con
versations. Ono of them pulled tho coattall of
Meagher ns ho paused by. asking:
"Why. Jimmy, havo you changed religion?"
"Yos." Moaghor replied, w;lth a smile.
Tho only ono who noticed nothing was tho
Court, Benjamin Pine of 47 West Twonty
sosond street was the complainant. Ha had
boon drinking In. Meaghor's saloon on Mon
day evening, he explained, when Moagher sud
denly exclaimed that tip had lost a valuable
diamond ring. During the tumult that fol
lowed somo one said: Hero It Is," at tho
same time stooping and aotlng'os.if he had
taken It from, l'lnos -trousers, whloh wero
turned up at the bottom. A general assault
on him followod, tho oomplalnant said, two
men holding blm. while Meagher struck him
In the face. Fliallylho was thrown from tho
place.
The dotondant produced as a witness ono of
his bartenders, who also wore a Roosevelt but
ton, although not aulte as Inrgo as that ot his
omnloyer. The witnoss had to admit that tho
complainant had been attacked, but he said
that no blows wore struck by hlmsolt or the
defendant. As the ring story hnd not been
fully explained. Magistrate Pool llnod Meagh
er only $10. .
A visit was made to Meagher s saloon last
evontng. It was decorated with campaign
posters ot Yan Wyok and other Demooratlo
candidates. Tho owner was not In the saloon,
but sno of his bartendors was In ohargo.
"Thore Is a rumor that Mr. Meagher has"
flopped and fiono over to Roosevelt. Is that
Tho bartender gasnooVand looked as If he
had been told that tho Statue of Liberty had
been found to be made ot green cheese.
"Who Bays anything of tbe.klnd?" he asked
at last. After a whllo he added: Don't you
think thnt Meaghor does any flopping. He
Is as Btanoh a Demoprat now as ever."
Whorefore the Tiresenoe; of a two-lnoh
Roosevelt button on Mr. Meagher's coat lapel
when ho appeared as a prisoner before n Re
publican Magistrate yesterday remains unexplained.
BRIDGE AND ELEVATED.
Aidertnen Impugn the Legality of Shea's
Contract with the Drooklyn Road.
The Aldermen aro after the scalp ot Bridge
Commissioner John L. Shea. At yesterday's
meeting ot the board Alderman Molnness
(Rep.)otBrooklyn Introduced tho followlngres
olutlon: "Iiaohrd. That tho Committees on Law.
Bridges and Streets, and Highways be, and
are hereby, directed to investigate and report
to this board whether the contract made by
tho Commissioner of Bridges, by which tho uso
of pabllo property and a publlo highway was
granted to a railroad company. Is legal, with
out the consent of tho Municipal Amenably."
Tho contract referred to Is that which Com
missioner Shea mado with tho Brooklyn Elo
vatod Road for tho exclusive use ot the Brook
lyn Bridge. Mr. Molnness declared that tho
Municipal Assembly was mode tho custodian
ot the bridge by tho provisions of the charter,
which makes It a publlo highway, and that
Commissioner Shea had no right to enterlnto
a contract for its use by tho Brooklyn Ele
vated Road without the consent of the
Municipal Assembly. In support of his
contention he quoted sections 508 and
COO ot the ohartor. which provide that
the bridge, shall at all times be a publlo
highway subject to such regulations as tho
Municipal Assembly shall adopt and pre
scribe : also, that It is tho duty ot the Commis
sioner ot Bridges to execute the ordinances of
the Assombly rolatlvo to tho bridge. In the
case of tho contract with the Brooklyn Ele
vated. Alderman Mclnnesa said, Mr. Shea did
not evon consult the Municipal Assembly, but
J rent ahead and entered Into the agre-mont
ust as though suoh a governing body did not
xist. Tho legality of ms notion. Mr. Hclnness
eclared, was open to serious doubt.
Alderman Bridges (Dom.) of Brooklyn said
that Alderman Molnness was simply playing a
game of political buncombe.
" Why. this man," he continued. " came here
last week with an olive branoh In one hand and
an axe in the other."
The resolution waa finally adopted by a vote
of 31 to 10.
