when a court of roeord makes a rule which

Tho United Gas Improvement Company of
Philadelphia, which company already controls
the Yonkors sns plant, as woll as gas plants In
142 cities In tho country, including Philadel
phia, proposes to branch out further in West
chester county. The Westohester Gas and
Coke Company ot Mount Vernon, which was
Incorporated at Albany on Friday with a capi
tal stock ot 3200.000, It was learned vesterday,
was orsnnized In the Interest of tho United
Gas Improvement Company.
The mw company has applications pending
for franchises to manufacture gas In Mount
Vernon. New Ttoohelle, Polliam and Pelham
Manor. Tho company is ultimately to be con
solidated with the Yonkors gas plant under
tho title of the Westchester Lighting Company.

TABERSACLB ir-V.S . J'OIXT.
Need Not Show Its Hooks Before Trlnl to
the Fifth Avnnus Ilnptlst Church.
A motion of thnFifth Avenue Baptist Church
to compel the Tabernacle Baptist Church on
Second avonuo to allow an inspection ot tho
Tabernacle Church books. In the action ot the
Tabernacle to recover f 3.800 stock dividends,
was denied yesterday by Justice Beach of tho
Supreme Court. In 1891 the Tabernaclo held
a hundred ears' loase ot property adjoining
its church, and It was arranged that the lease
should be surrendered to tho Fifth Avenue
Baptist Church, under an agreement by which
John D. Rockefeller was to build a church
house for tho Tabernaole. Mr. Rockefeller
built tho houso and cave oertaln stock of tho
Northern Paclflo Railway Company in trust to
the Fifth Avenue Baptist Church, under an
agreement by which tho Income from the stock
was to bo paid to the Tabernacle to be used
for certain church work. The complaint states
that the railway company paid dividends
of 5 per cent, for two years after tho arrange
ment and then ceased to pay any dividends.
Subsequently the railway cot on a 'paying
basis, but tho Fifth Avenue Baptist Church
did not resume paying dividends to the Taber
nacle. Tho defence is that tho Tabernnolo has
uotlivod up to Its agreement, and did not. dur
ing tho two years it received dividends, dis
burse them as tho agroomont provided.
In order to show how tho dividends were dis
bursed the Fifth Avenue Baptist Church moved
to compel nn inspection ot the Tabernaole
books. The Tabernacle agreed to present Its
books for Inspection by tho defendant at the
trial, but not before that time. Justleo Beach
holds that the Inspection at tho trial is sufficient.

WAVES ARE $30 A MOXTII, XEATILT
novntE THE Ol.lK
Shipping Matters nnd nonrdlng-Ilouso Keep
ers Have Corralled the Mftn( nnd, n thu
New I.nw Allows Creditors Not More
Than n Month's Pay, the Pay Goes Up.
For the first time In the history of the Amer
ican merchant marine, so tho shellbacks say,
the wages ot Yankee seamen, natutnllred and
native, havo gone up to J.'10 n month.
The shipowner didn't ralso them because ho
wantod to: he wns forced to by n combination
ot shipping masters nnd bonrdlng-houia koou
era, tho proverbial enemies of the man bofore
tho mast.
It came about through tho cnforcement.ot
the new United Btatos law .Prohibiting the
shipping ranstor, boarding-house keeper, or
any one else to whom Jnck might owe money,
from getting In advance, by hook or crook,
more than tho amount of his wages for one
month. Naturally, tho slilpplugVmnster, who
sets Jack his job for a consideration, nnd tho
boardlng-houso keeper, who keeps Jack whllo
he Is Idle ashore for a larger consideration, did
not like tho law. But they didn't fee. how they
oould set more than Jack's first month's wages,
which, when tho Inw went Into effect a few
weeks ago, were $18. Now. (18 is not much
money in tho eyes of niea who have been In
the habit ofaDsorblng from S40 to $50 of
Jack's car before ho Balls. The only way to
get more advanco money was to raise Jack's
wages, and the shipping mnsterB and boarding
house keepers, assisted by their "runners." de
cided not to furnish any Bailors at losshan
$30 a month.
The American ship Emily F. Whitney, which
sailed for Honolulu on March t). was the first
vcssol to got away with a crow shipped under
tho new law. Thoy signed articles Becretly
and went down tho bay to the ship surrep
titiously. Agents of shipping masters nnd
bonrdlng-houio keepers, on a tug. valnlv tried
to Induce the sailors to quit. The men had
slgnod for $20 a month and didn't give up a
cent to anybody.
Sinco that oventtho shipping masters and
boarding-house keepers havo cornored prac
tically all tho sailors ln the market, havo fed
them high and have hlntod thnt It wis only n
question oftlmo when thoy would be multi
millionaires, or, at least, owners of vachts.
.lack beoame as happy as a clam at hluh water.
Representatives or the shin owners or the tklp
ters ot the ships came to Jack and offered Jilm
$20 a month and plum duff every day if he
would only step atxnrd Jnck smiled and said
he oould get $30. Would lie make It S'J'J.rH)
nnd nlum duff? No, ho wouldn't. It must be
$30 or nothlnir.
Meanwhile ship owners wore looking around
for able seamen. The Ynnkco ship John It.
Kellov. Capt. Chapman, had hor cargo stowed
and wns ready for sen on Saturdav All dio
needed was iv good crow to take her on her
long vov ago to San Prnnelsco. But herngents
here. J W F.lwell A Co. of 47 South MreetC.ind
her skinper were unable to get it single A. li.
So they nppoalod to the ."hipping masters,
Joseph Jenks Immediately offered twenty
four fars. They signed before Shipping Com
missioner Joseph Jl. .Hekov forS.IO a month
nnd went aboard the Kelley nt Pier 13, Past
River. She sniled sehtordny The nllotmont
notos of tho seamen wore signed bv the Com
missioner and were to vntlous persons. They
covered Jink's wnges for one month. I'.von
with this reduction ho will bo entitled to about
$00 at the end ot his four months' vovnge,
provided slops are not too dear aboard ship.
A jear ajro he might have received, if luoky.
about $'.) after reaching San Francisco
The new law permits n sailor koIiib to for
eign Dorts (otherwise than the Dominion of
Canada. Newfoundland. Wept lndlon and Mex
ico) aad f-om an American Atlantic port
to an American l'ncllli' por or vice vera, to
"allot an amount not exceeding ono month's
wages to an oriclnnl creditor In liquida
tion of any just dobt for honrd or clothing
which he may have contracted prior to ongago
ment "
The shipowners think the defect In tho new
law Is Its failure to speolfv the amount, of the
allotment Jack may make. This is what has
enabled the shipping masters nnd bonnllng
houso keepers to foreo tho shipowners to pay
tho unprecedented wages The cvwiors think
that it the law had limited the nmounr, uf the
allotment to $20 Jack might have shipped for
that money. Another cnuse ot Jack's good
fortune Is the scarcity of able seamen, due
largely to the needs of our Government trans
port service. It is said that there aro about
i.000 sailors, who formerly servod on Amor
loan merohnnt ships, among the large crews of
tho transports They get $'.'. a month nnd are
well fed and well treated.
Other silling ships thnt will bo looking for
crews soon are the Josephus. to sail for Hong
Kong: the Paul Revere, to sail for Slianghnl:
the Cyrus Wakefield and Charle 1'. Moody, to
sail for.San Francisco, and the Gov. Robie. to

tho adoption of the bill, and tho further ohargn
Is mndo Hint Fitrgorald votod for a favorablo
report out of commlttco. As " war on corpora

these two Tainmnny statesmen had a numbor
of frtonds In the third houso nt Albany, peremp
tory action wns docidod upon by Mr. Croker.
That's tho reason given In Tammany Hall.
Outsldo they say thnt Mr. Croker's injllcylsto
frown on alt deals not arrangod by himself
with the corporations concornod.
Most of the members of Iho committee woro
on hand at the meeting. Including Prosldont
Holuhannf the Hoard of Publlo Improvements,
the leader of Fitzgerald's district, nnd Park
Commissioner Moobus. lender of the Thirty
fourth. Mr Croker mndo a short speech. He
sntd that he had been Informed that Fitzgerald
and Redington were In fnvor of tho Astoria
gas measure.
"If they arc In fnvor of It." said Mr. Crokor.
"they havo betrayed tho peoplo who elected
them nnd tho principles of tho Democratic
party, which Is opposed to all monopolies and
trusts, and is in fnvor of a reduction In tho
price of gas. I suggest thnt tho leaders of the
districts which thesn Assemhlvmen represont
bo Instructed to Investigate tho conduct of
these mon. and if the charges mmlo niinlnst
thorn aro HUHlained. they ought to bo oxnolled
from the organization. Certainly their con
duct. If what wo hoar is true. Is very sus
picious "
Mr. Croker's remarks brought on n general
dlseusBlon. in which nearly all the members of
the t'onimittco took part. Mr Holahan nnd
Mr Moebus both said that the Assemblymen
wero. so far ns they know, faithful ndhorents
to the prlnelplos of tho organization, and that
neither of them had uvur before been suspected
of harboring nny but orthodox sentiments In
regnrd to trusts nnd monopolies. Mr Holahan
Pointed out that Fitzgerald, who Is nn Ico
denier, had served faithfully In tho organiza
tion for years, nnd had represented the district
in tho Assembly in 180.M 81 HI. 1807 nnd 1808.
During that tlmo ho hnd not been accused of
unfaithfulness, nnd Mr Holahan wns strongly
of the opinion thnt the suspicion now nttnchlng
to him would be found to bo without founda
tion Mr. Moebus said that ho dldn t think that
Mr Redington could be guilty Mr lledlnglon
wns born in Vermont, it wns said, nnd had
joined Tammany- on his arrival inthiscltya
few yoaisngo Ho Is a lawyor. und served in
the psomblv in 18UH. During that term ho
did not show nny tendency to side with the
plutocrats and monopolists, butstood firm on
tho platform ( f Tninninny Hall
Messrs Holahan ami Moebus agreed that If
the charges ngalnst tho Assomblymon woro
sustained no punishment could bo too severe.
Like the other members nf thecommlttee, they
believed that, any person favoring the granting
of the privilege asked by the AstorUCompiny
should be dropped from tho organization The
further serious charge that Fitzgerald and
Redington wero on terms of intimacy with the
lobby was discussed b half a ilozon speakers,
who repeated tales tlior had hoard, nnd the
committee derided unanimously that thesn ac
cusations were serious enough to warrant in
vestigation The method of investigating the charges was
loft to Messrs Holahan and Moebus Thoy
will take whatever stops they think necessary
In order to prove or disprovo the charges. It
Is expected that they will get to work nt once,
so that Fitzgerald nnd Redington mny be
bounced from tho organization or cleared ot
th charges before tho Legislature adjourns
The committee voted to recommend ex
