Gov. Roosevelt Consults with Lenders and
Decides nn a Plan tn Remedy It.
Albany, Jan. 13. Following up his recom
mendation in his annual message to the Legis
lature regarding the evils of ovor.'oglsiat ion,
Gov. Roosevelt to-dav conferred with Senator
17UwMt Rrukntia,- KIthi, nrwl ft itnvnn r.rtin
moro prominent Republican leaders, of the
two houses with a view of outlining a plan to
remedy, the evil. It was the consensus of
opinion that In post years too many personal
and private measures bad been rushed through
during the last days of tho session, which not
only cumber the statute books, but treat of
subjects which should have been covered by
general laws. It was also observed that many
Important and unimportant measures wore In
troduced each session as amendments to exist
ing laws. In which the new matter was not
As an outoomo-of this consultation the Gov
ernor, with tho cordial approval of tliCBO lead
ers, outlined A plan by whioh the business of
the Legislature will be expedited, and the
provisions ot the laws passed will be familiar
to the oublio long before they reaoh the execu
tive chamber. Occasionally the new matter
In proposed laws amondlog existing laws may
unintentionally not be underscored, but In the
past the instances have been numerous where
unimportant new matter In a bill would be un
derscored, with no Indication that more Im
portant amendments were Included. Fre
quently Important amendments to existing
taws have sllppen through the Legislature un
mown to the public (Joy. Roosevelt has de
cided that he will veto any bill which amends
an existing law In whioh the new matter is not
ltallolzed. He will thus dispose of such bills
apart from any merit they may possess. Of
course, there will be exceptions to this rule,
but tne necessity for his signing a Mil tn which
the new matter Is not underscored must be
convincing. . .
In order to prevent an accumulation of 000
or 700 bills In the hands of tho Governor dur
ing the thin y-day period following tlm final
adjournment ot the Legislature, which has
been a usual occurrence In recent years, the
members ot the Legislature will be informed
that they must nush all of their local and pri
vate bills In order that they may reach the
Governor and be dlsosediof by him while the
Legislature Is still In session. This proposi
tion applte to the hundreds of unimportant
local and private measures which can just as
well be Introduced and disposed of during tho
first half of the session of the Legislature, dur
ing which the wheels ot legislation usually
grind slowly. The Governor's idea Is that a'l
such legislation can be introduced and dis
posed of within the next two month. Other
wise ho will regard with suspicion, the bills
which are sont to him for a thirty-day consid
eration, should they bo passed in sdoh large
numbers as they have been in the past few
years during tho last two weeks of the session.
This movement is regarded by the members
ot the Legislature as a step In the Interest of
Gov.i Roosevelt wishes It understood that
these conclusions regarding proposed legisla
tion at the present session have been arrived
at only after a free exchange of views with the
prominent members of the Legislature, There
Is to be no attempt at Gubernatorial dictation
In the Legislature. The executive and legis
lative branohes ot the State Government are tn
entire acoord regarding the remedy forth
vll ot overl.rgislatlon.

ROOSEVET.T OS' AI13IT BEEF.

tho letteV he roeolvod from Gov. Roosevelt. It
Is as follows: . ...

" Gtn. Jftltm At Milu. War Department, D'assing
ton, D. C.
"My Deak Gen. Miles: I do not distinctly
understand about this beef controversy, but
possibly what I have to write may boot some
use. Tho canned corned beof wo found to bo
f:ood. Tho 8o;callod canned roast beef thnt was
ssuod to us tor travel rations, both on the
transport nnd on the train, nnd which wo oc
casionally got even at the front, was practically
worthless, Unloss very hungry the men would
not touch it, nnd oven when suffering from
lack of food thoy ncvor ato a fifth of It.
At the best It wan tasteless; at the worst
it was nauseating. Thoro was also a supply of
beof (In the shape of quarters) which was put
aboard our transport at Tampa. It was sup
posed to be fitted by somo process to withstand
tropical heat. It at once bocame putrid, and
smolled so that wo had to dispose of It for tear of
Us creating disease. I think we threw it over
board. At any rate it wns condemned. Tho
beef we got in Santiago, after about the 24th or
2fth of July that is. after the sloge hail ended,
and when my brigade had been without fresh
meat or vegetables for a month was generally
good. By that time tho cavalry division was in
a sickly condition. The fact that the meat
ration was so bad as generally to bo Inedible
caused very great hardship to my mon and re
duced the supply of food below what was
necessary to keep them In proper condition.
Very sincerely yours.
aE. WOOD'S TEST1MOXY.
He Says tho Refrigerated Reef at Smitlngo
Was In Fair Condition.
Wasihnoton, Jan. 13. Gen. Leonard Wood,
Military Governor ot Santiago, was the first
witness before the War Investigation Com
mission this morning. He said that a groat
deal ot refrigerated beet was sont the troops
at Santiago. It littd a slight mould on It, but
was really unloaded In good condition. There
was a prejudice among the troops against
meat that had aged to any extent. A great
deal ot the beef was condemned, but not be
cause the beef was bad beet when It reached
Santiago, but because it could not be proporlv
handled. It would leave the ship before day
break in the morning and not reach the troops
before 4 or 5 o'clock in the afternoon.
Speaking generally, he said the Santiago
campaign should be judged by the result.
The enemy was beaten. The campaign was
not devoid ot hardship, but It was not as severe
as the operations under Gen. Lawton on the
Yak In River in 1880. when little food could be
had. Tho armr In Cuba had accomplishel
what was regarded as impossible. The foreign
attaches regarded the expedition as wonder
fully successful. They otten romarkod on the
overcoming of the natural difficulties. The
