AmtNV. March 0. Hosldonts of Amsterdam

number if 700 to-dny urging favorable consld

duced by Senator Ford nnd Assemblyman Fal
lows which Is designed to compel Hio Third
Acnu1 and Metropolitan Htroet Railway com
panies to uso tho ono set of double tracks on
the nveniio between Sovnnty-sooond nml 125th

nf tho two sets of doublo tracks now
en tlio avenuo by providing that no mil shall
come within twonty foet of olther curb. Its
iponsors say that if it is ouacted they expect
that the tracks will not bo intorlaood. but that
the two oomp'inlos will como to nn agroomont
to use tho ono sot of tracks.
Eleven carloads, comprising upward of 700
residents of Amsterdam avenuo and vicinity,
reached Albany a few minute niter the noon
hourtn-tlay They marched in a body to tlio
Capitol, and. com ing up Capital Hill, the Hno
extended from tho Capitol ontranco to Pearl
itreet Tho character of tho delegation was
commented upon by thoso familiar with dele
gations which havo appeared here on other
questions. Tho members of tho dolegatlon
were of tlio kind that paid tholr own fare. It
was the best nnd most numerous delegation
thnt has appeared In Albany In years ursine
the piotaco of pending legislation. Arriving
at the Capitol, tho dologatlonboslcgod tho Sen
ate chamber. On learning of tholr arrival
Senator Ford moved a recess of the Sonato for
flro minutes in order that his constituents
might meet tho Senators, as well as socuro
eats or standing room in the two gallorles or
en the floor of the Scnnte. Hardly two min
utes hail passed before) tho ohambor and gal
leries wero crowded to suffocation.
When the Senate resumed Its session tho
Railroad Commltteo roportod Senator Ford's
Amsterdam Avenue bill, amended as reported
in theso despatches. Tho bill was roportod for
the consideration of tho Senate, which leaves
the members of tho committee free to vote as
they desiro when tho bill comes up for discus
iloa In tho Senate A week ago to-day the Sen
ato Instructed tho Railroad Committee to report
upon tho Ford bill by to-day. It was expected
that the bill would bo roportod oithor favor
ably or adversely. Tho cominittoe exercised
Its prorogatlro in not taking any stand upon
the bill and roported it for consideration.
When tho roport was read. Senator Ford.
flanked on all sides by his constituents, moved
to strlko out the amendment to tho bill
made In tho Railroad Committee, whereby a
neir section regarding tho damage compensa
tion to bo paid tho railroad companies on ac
count qt a relocation of their tracks on Am
sterdam avenuo was substituted. -A two
hour' discussion followed. Senator Ford de
manded that the bill bo pnssod without amend
ment, and said that tho pooplo interested
would accept nothing elso. lie declared that
the amendment was inserted for tho purpose
of affording tho railroad companies an oppor
tunity to go beforo tho "courts and delay
forsoveral years what It was Intonded to ac
complish by the passago of the bill. He de
clared that the Kallrond Committee was hostile
to tlio bill, and would not have roportod It ex
cept undor instructions from tho Senate. Mo
aid that tho nmendment had been Inserted in
the bill with a viow of arousing opposition to
the measure not only In tho Leglslnturo. but
from tho Now York city authorities. Ilo urged
every true friend of tho bill to press Its ad
vancement without accepting an amendment
Senator Qrady.who brought tlm amendment to
Albuny.nnd under whose guidance the amend
ment was Incorporated in tho bill, characterized
Senator Ford's motion as a most extraordinary
one, which violated the Senuto rules of proced
ure. Itwasthedutyof thaSonato, hesnhl.to
recolvo tho roport and ordor the bill re
printed as amended, when iteould bndlscuBsed
later In Commltteo of tho Whole. The amend
ment, ho declared, simply preserved the rights
of all Interested in the question, thoso of the
railroad companies as well as of tho citizons
and tho city.
Senator Klon II. Brown of Wntortown said
that Senator lord's motion was not an unusual
ono, mid thnt he had taken the only proper
courbn to accomplish Ills purpose.
Senator Raines, the Chairman of the Railroad
rqmmlttee, roviowed the action of the eom
mlttee upon tlio hill, and showed that thajro
bad Icon no unusual delay in its consideration
n view o the changes in tho bill which had
neon made by thoso who favored It. Ho ns
seiled that because Senator Ford's political
future doponded upon tho passaged tho bill
It was not a siifllelent reason to cause, tho
hnnato to tlrrow aside all precedent In tho con
sideration of the measure.
Senator Ellsworth, tho Republican loadorm
the Semite, declared that tlio roport on tho bill
made by the commltteo was an unusual one.
Hie commlttoo reports tlm bill for consider
ation," ho said. "This means that It has no
view on tlio question as to tho advisability of
Ha pa.st.ngo. Yet tlio commltteo In reiorting
the bill (or confederation amends it materially,
J his would Indicate that tlm committee has an
opinion regarding tho merits of tho measure,
but does not express It to tho Henato. In view
ot the inconsistent action of tho commltteo, I
think Senator Ford was amply justified In
making his motion to strike tho amendment
from the hill."
Senator llrackett was surprised that Ronator
lord did not accept thoamendment, as It would
not Interfere with tho object sought to bo ac
complished by the bill.
henators Ford. Grady nnd llrackett discussed
the effect of tlio amonriment ut length, tho
Jattertwo Senators doclnrlnu that tho amend
ment would do nothing more than provide an
effectual remedy for preserving the rights of
tho railroad companies and the city.

Assomblymeu Fallows and Mazer, who hove
worked hard In tho Interest of this measure,
while tboy expected thnt thoy would get the
bill through tho Assembly without amend

objection was nimloto Its Immediate passage
to-day. Tho result simply showed that they
had done tholr work thoroughly nnd well. The
delegation of Amsterdam nvonuo residents
had left Albany about n quarter of nn hour be
fore tho bill was passed, vowing vengeance
upon the Senators who had voted ngnlnst
striking out tho amendment from tho Ford
bill, which was Inserted by tlm Sonato Railroad

tho friends ot the hill thnt ho had succeeded In
getting It through tho Houso without amend

New York city Corporation Counsel In Albany,

Richard Croker said last night that ho had

thought tho railroad company should bo com

"I have dono my best to help the bill." said
Mr. Crokor. "I asked the Tammany Hall mem
bers of tho Legislature to vote for It. Yhat

suggested, tho amendmont is unconstitutional
tho bill ought to bo adopted In Us unamended

all It can. I think some way should bo found
to prevent Amstordam avenue being turned

Edward Lauterbncli. counsel for the Third
Avenue Railroad Company, which desires to
lay a second set of electric car tracks In tho
avenue, said that ho regarded the adoption of
the amendmqnt as a vlotory for vested rights.

London, March 0. Once moro tho aggres
sion of rival powors seeking plunder In tho
Far East has reached tho point whore a col
lision Is lnovltable unless oithor Russia or Great
Britain abandons openly Its declared purpose
Tha last timo It was Lord Salisbury who bent
a retroat In similar circumstances, to tho
unsponkablo humiliation ot n majority of his
supporters. Thero Is no sign of his yielding
thus far In tho pro.ont crisis: on tho contrary,
his attttudo Is as nggrosslvo as It wns In dealing
with Franco on tho Fashodn question. The
point on which tho situation hinges Is not
Intrinsically vital, but Groat Britain Is
ovldontly determined to mako It doclslvo ot the
fato ot tho Chlnoso r.raplro. In other words.
England propones to mako a stand now In do
fpneo ot her Interests in the Far East as woll as
In Afrloa.
Thodoflnttonbnndonmont of tho open-door
policy in favor of sphoros of lnfluouce. which
means the partition of China, has not yet been
arowod. but ofllolal acts and language all Indl
oato such a decision. To-day's announcement
In the Houso ot Commons that Gront Britain
supported tho Italian claim for Chlnoso ter
ritory scarcoly admits of any other Interpreta
tion. Tho British determination to forco nn
Immediate Issue with Russia does not make
war Inovltablo or even probable, ns many
bollevo. Russia realizes her own unreadi
ness, and the Freneh paralysis is oven moro
clearly defined than It was a year ago. Tho
chances aro, thoroforc. that it will bo tho Cr.nr
who will withdraw as soon as ho Is convinced
that Lord Salisbury really moans what ho says.
It Is not unlikely that a vlrtuo will bo mado of
necessity, and that tho Russian Emporor will
make a graceful concession as nn earnost of
Ills profossod love of peace.
It tho announcement which tho well-informed
Graphic makes to-day may bo regarded
as accurnto It would seem that such a conces
sion had already been mado. That paper says
that the Now Chwnng loan contract crisis has
been amicably settlod by a direct ox
change of vlows by the British' and Russian
Governments. Tho protest of M. do Giors,
the Russian Minister to China, had been
much exaggerated, and tho friendly as
surances given py tlio Russian Gov
ernment on the subject havo proved
completely satisfactory. Tlio whole diffi
culty Is now at an end nnd tho two Govern
ments are giving attention to a schemo by
which tholr relations In tho Far East may bo
permanently regulated.
This Information Is not supportod In other
quarters, however, and tho writers of editorials
try with small success to oxtract hope from
Mr. I) rod rick M declaration that the Govern
ment is not aware that Russia has rcnowed hor
Tho Timtt thinks that no great comfort Is to
bo dorived from this declaration, Drst. because
tha statement Is not ery material so long
as the protest Is not revoked, and secondly,
bocauso the Government's Intelligence re
garding Chinese affairs has often proved
tardy and defective. Tho Times strongly con
demns " the flagrant attempt of a Russian rep
roscntotivo bully to drlvo China Into break
ing her bargain with British subjects, mado
with the knowledge of tho British Govern
ment and justly regarded as a binding en
gagement." It declares that until matters
have been put right about the Now Chwang
loan It Is almost useless to continue tho at
tempts to come to a comprehensive agreement
with Russia on tha respective Interests In tho
far East.
The Morning Poai Is equally emphatic. It
contends that the actual strain of the situation
has not been relieved.
The Dailv Xnr$ says that so long as no
understanding between the Governments is
roachod the futuro cannot be regardod with
out grave misgiving.
GinBALTAn, Marcn 0. The British cruisers
Aurora and Orlando, which aro coaling here,

Italy has already occupied San Mun Bay. The
Tsung-ll-Ynmon, In answering tho note of Sir
Claude MaoDonnld, the British Minister, sup
porting Italy's demand for a leaso of that
place, rofused to discuss the matter, and begged
htm to dissuade Slgnor Mnrtlno, the Italian
Mlnlstor, from pursuing his claim.
ThoT8ung-ll-Yamen to-day Informed Slgnor
Mnrtlno. the Italian Minister, that it had re
turned his despatch relative to tho cession of
San Mun Bay bocauso it was Impossible for It
to grant Italy's demand, nnd a refusal might
have endangerod the relations between 'the
two countries, but, as Its notion had been niis
utidorstood.the Tsung-ll-Yamcn had Instructed
the Chlnoso Mlnlstor at Romo to expross re
grets to tho Italian Government.
This increases HlgnorMartlno's difficulties.

Mr. Brodrlck further said that tho Oovorn

untrue that England supported tho Belgian

The Government, ho said, was grateful for the

has decided on eight ot tho officers who will be
appolntod Brigadier-Generals of Volunteers
under the Army Reorganization law. nnd tho
other two who will be appolntod hav o been prac
tically solected. These officers will bo trans
ferred to tho regular army If Congress con
tinues the standing establishments a strength
of 05.000 men, the number authorized by the
Reorganisation act. The Sun lias already told
of the decision of the President to appoint Ma-jcr-Gonerals
L'lwell B. Otis and William It.
Rhatter to bo'Mnjor-Generals In the new army.
The now Brlgadlor-Generala all hold general
commissions In the volunteer service. They
are as follows: Maior-Gen. James II. Wilson,
appointed from civil life: Major Gen. Fltzhuch
Lee.appotnted from civil llfo : Major-Gen Henry
W. Lanton. (Lionel and Inspector-General ot
the regular army : Major-Gen. Adna It. Chaffee.

Leonard Wood. Cautalu aud Assistant Sur
geon in the regular army, anj Brlg.-Geu.

M. Young, Colonel of cavalry In the regulnr
army; Urtg.-Gen Charles King, a retired Cap
tain of the regular array, and Drlg.-Oon. Ir

hoved that tho President will surely appoint
Gen. King, unless his previous retirement
from tlio resular scrvloe on account ot dis
ability should be held to disbar him, leaving the
ohoico of the other place botween Gon. Young
nnd Gen. Hale. Nearly all the new Brigadier

the other names considered were those of
Mnjor-Oen. Joseph Whoolor of Alabama and
Brtg.-Gen. Harrison Gray Otis of California.
Both of these officers were appointed from
civil llfo, Tho Presjdont would hnvo liked to
have appointed Gen. Wheeler, but hl ge and
other considerations connected wl'h his status
as a Representative In Congrois Interfered
with this desire. . .
Tho name of Ilrlg.-Oon. Thomas M. Andor
son was considered, also, by the President In
connection with tho now appointments, but It
was determined to transfer him to tho regu
lar army to succeed Brlg.-Gen. Mnrctis Miller,
who will retire on March 27. Gen. Anderson is
in command of a division nt Manila. Gon. Mil
