West hide l'olks Confident, However, Thnt (should the Legislature Fall Them They tan Win Their right lilght Here llrjcatise of thu Third Avenue's Lack of Consents. Tbn Amstordam Avenue Street Railway bill Is more of a tauglo than ever since Senator Thomas V. Grady got In his work on It yester day, and It promises to bo a still greater puz zle, for all of tho lawyers who havo been con ducting tho west side residents' nntl-four-track campaign havo more amendments In their pockets. But no amendments will bu ptoposod, so tho west sldo lnwyors told a Sun reporter yesterday, which do not havo tho ap proval of tho Metropolitan Street Railway Cotnpnnynnd Tammany Hall. Theso lawyers say that thoy regret that, to provent the opera tion of four tracks in tho avenue, they havo been forced to accept tho aid of Mr.Crokor and Mr. Whitney, and to accept thulr dictation In omondlng tho Amstordam avenue bill. Thoy had hoped to keep the question out of politics. Two changes wero made In tho bill yester day, ono by Mr. Croker and the other by Mr. Whitney. Mr. Crokor's amendment, ns was cald In The Sun of yesterday, strikes out tho city of New York ns a co-dofondantwlth tho Metropolitan road In nny nction tho Third Avenuo Ilnllroad Company would bring for compensation for tho confiscation of Its rail way and Its franchise. John Alexander Bcnll of tho went sldo rusldonts' counsel said that tt was a blunder that tho original section 4 had beon left In tho bill with Mr. Whitney's con fiscation amendment, aa this amendment was Intended as a substitute for and not an addi tion to section 4. Tho orlglnnl section gavo tho Third Avenuo road a right of action against tho city for the loss of its prorerty, should It rolocnto Its tracks by overlapping them on tho Metropolitan's. As the bill lias been amended by Senator Orady. at tho Instigation of Mr. Croker. the bill docs not say that Ihe Metro politan's rlvnl can recover a cent of damages. If It Is forced to relay Its tracks In the nvcuuo. But Mr. Whltnoy's lawyers are uot much In terested In the part of the bill which goes bo foro tholr confiscation amendment. "Tho relocation of tho Third Avenue's tracks, on tho faco of the bill. Is mado possible." ono of the west sldo resldonts1 lawyers told n Sun re porter on tho dny tho Whitney confiscation amendment wns sent to Albany. "But If tho Supremo Court finds that It Is for tho 'public Interest ' for Mr. Lnuterbaeh's road to get out of tho a cuue, how aro thoy going to relay tholr trneks?" The real Amsterdam avenuo bill, so tho west sldo residents' lawyers 9ay. Is contained In the Whltnoy amendmont. which, as fixed over yesterday, roads: Tho Supremo Court shall hnvo jurlsdlctloa In nn action brought by tho Attorney-Oeneral In tho name of the people to find nnddetermino If It is for tho public interest that any railroad tracks, tho operation of which Is affected by tho first section of this net, shall be entirely re moved from tho avenuo and not rolocntod; and ln such caso to order the romoval thereof, upon duo compensation to bo ascortalnod by a jury or three commissioners, as the Court shall direct, and to assess tho owners of nny railroad or railroads remaining In said avenuo (and tho city of New York) for tho payment of such compensation. If any. In pro portion to benefits received from such ro moval. Nothing in this section shnll limit or nffect tho operation of tho first section of this act. Nor shall anything contained In this act bo construed us conferring nny franchise or authority to construct or operate a railroad upon said avenue, not heretofore conferred, nor to withdraw In such action Irom said court the question of the right of nny party to such uctlm to occupy said avenue or any part there of with Its traoks, nor the question of Its right to the mnnnerln or motive power by whleh It proposes to operate its railroad. The Italicized words, " or railroads," wero In serted In the section, and tho words In paren theses, "and the city of Now York." wero stricken out. There are two railroads in tho nvenue. thu Metropolitan and the Thinl Avenuo. The Whitney bill says that tho Third Avenue hhall be driven out. nnd bu paid for going out b v tho railroads remaining. "Why wero tho words or railroads' Insert ed ?" John Alexander Beall was asked. " How can the Metropolitan be more than one road?" " We thought there might be sotno trouble over tho question of lessor and lessee." answered Mr. Beall. " You see the Metropol itan road leasos its Amstordam avenuo lino from tho Ninth Avenue Ilnllroad Company." Mr. Beall said he didn't care to say anything more about the "or railroads "change In the Whitney bill. Tho bill, condensed. Is in sub stance as follows: The Third Avonue road shall get out of Amsterdam nvenne; It shall bn paid for getting out by the Ninth Avenuo Rail road Conn any and thu Metropolitan Street Railway Company. Sir, Beall did not sav that Mr. Whltnoy wanted the owners of his Amsterdam avenue lino to pay tho Third nvenue for getting out. Many lawyers agree with Henator Elsberc. who holds that the Whltney-Croker tinkering with tho Amsterdam avenuo bill has produced a mcasuro which tho courts would declare to be unconstitutional. They ask how the Legis lature can make tho Metropolitan road alono nay all the damages tho Third Avonue would no entitled to. Tlio original bill put all tho burden on tho city, no part of It on tho Metro politan. Now tho condition of things Is re versed. Tho meeting of tho Board of Trustees of tho Cathedral of bt. John the Dlvlno. called for vesterdayto take steps looking to tho with drawal of the board's consent to the Third Avenue's change of motlvo power, was ad journed for lack of a quorum. Oeorgo M. Mil ler. Secretary of the board, said that the nction would undoubtedly bo taken. " The Third Av enuo is seeking to perfect Its consents," said Mr. Mlllor, "ns the court Is not satisfied that It has enough, and tho matter, therefore, is still open. Wo have a perfect right to withdraw our consent." The steering commlttco of the confiscation fight Is doing nil It can to got other property owners to withdraw their consents, nnu the lawyers in the committee think thoy aro acting within tho law. " Home of tho newspapors aro doing all they can to befog the situation and to render It less easy of comprehension by tho public." said Mr. llealllyestorday, "but that will not help Mr. Lauterbach much, for I bellove that the light will hnve been won by tho early part of next weok. Should we hnve a material hetbnek lu Albany, which I do not believe. I think wo could beat ourlopponents right hero In New York. Wo could do It through their lack of consents of 'property ownurs and their Inability to obtain thorn." TFtK SITUATION IN At.DANT. Ai.niNY, March 22 The unholy combination of the Metropolitan Street Rallwav Company mid Richard Croker, through his Senatorial pupiiets. to eonllscnto prlvato proporty and drive the Third Avenuo Railroad Company off of Amsterdam avonue movos on unchecked. To-day Senator Grady succeeded ln having tho Fallows bill amended so as to pro vldo that tho city shall not bo liable for any part of tho damage compensation awarded the railroad whose tracks may be ordorcd removed from tho avenue. Thero are seven Republican Senators who favor tho Met ropolitan amendment to tho Fallows bill whoso Integrity .Is unquestioned. They nro (i. A. Davis. Lllsworth. Hlggln. Humphrey, Strnna han. Krum. nnd White They say openly that in tholr opinion the Ford amendment, which was propnrod by Kllhu Hoot, counsel for tho Metropolitan Company, Is as fti'-orablo to tho Metropolitan Company ns It Is unjust to the Third Avenuo Ilnllroad. While they deslro to afford tho Amsterdam avenue property owners the relief they demand In tho removal of two tracks from tho avenue, thoy nlso desire to do oqunl justice to both corporations, but they sny that no amendmont which would accomplish that purpose has been suggested. F.ven If It wns. thoy might hesitato to support It. fearing the threat of Benntor Ford that unless tho Metropolitan amendment was adopted that company would prevent tho passage of the Fallows bi'l. They have, heard of the remark made by Kllhu Hoot at the conferenco on the Amsterdam avenuo question lu New ork: " If tho Ford amendment Is not adopted tho Metropolitan Company will use every means to deleat tho bill that is, every honorable means," These Republican Senators reallzo the com bination which exists between Richard Croker and the Metropolitan Company to kill off the Third Avenue Ilnllroad Company .Mr, Croker has been aiding the Metropolitan Company In thnt direction for several vcars past If thev sueceed In their present undertaking they bono It will be tho death blow to tho Third Avenue Company in the tight which tho Metro politan Company has waged against it fur years. From a tnlk with the Republican Senators mentioned It Is believed that they bavu como to a full realization of tho faet that In grant ing tho demnnds of the Amsterdam incline Property owners there Is no necessity for aid ing the Metropolltan-Croker combination. The riillows bill with tho Ford amendment Is not jet passed by nny means. Tho bill will not come up for final passage in the Senate before Monday night or Tuesday There are ennugh Senators who favor tho Ford amendment who bellevo that it is outrageously unjust ln Its destruction of the rights of the Thinl Avenuo Company, to defeat the bill, Whether they will have tho courage of their convictions remains to be seen. Home fears as to their final decision might be felt were they not men of unquestioned character. There is no doubt that when Senator Ford and John C. Coleman and Thomas A. Fulton. who, as attorneys, havo tho Interests of tho Amsterdam avonue property ownors lu charge nt Albany, first ontored this light they did so solely fort he purposoof securing thedomands of the peoplo. Thelrcoursoon this question slnco the Metropolitan amendments ofTerod by Grady and Ford were Injected into the discussion would Indicate that thoy havo other In terests besides tboso of tho Amster dam avenuo property ownors nt Itenrt. It is not believed that tho cltlrens on tho west sldo of New York city rcnllro tlio effect of tho Ford nmeudment, contenting themselves with the knowlodgo that but two tracks will remain if It Is enacted Into law. If n person sitting In tho Hennte chamber lest Monday night who wns not familiar vvlth Henator Ford's volco had closed his eyes when Henator Ford was advocating the Metropolitan amendment he would havo believed thnt Kllhu Root, the counsel for tho Metropol itan Railroad Company, was addressing tho Hennto In Its favor Other Incidents a oiig this lino could bo noted, nil tending to show thnt somu of tho Henntors who ndvoente tho I ord amendment hnvo other Interests nt stake Ije sldes n doslro to grant the demands of tho proporty owners on Amsterdam nvenue. Whon Senator Orady moved to amend tho Fallows bill to-day he said that the amend ment was approved by the elty authorities, nnd that ho would withdraw it It later It wns found thnt it would Jcopnnlbn tho pnssnge of the bill. Henator Ford, with alacrity, and even boforo Senator Orady bad gained Ills scat. Informed the Senate thnt ho had no objection to tho amendment. Senator Klsberg warned Honntor Ford that by nceeptlng tho nmeudment thoro would bo a grave question nstothe constitu tionality of the bill. After somo further talk the amendment was adopted. On Monday night, when the Fallows bill wns amended. It wns placed upon tho files of tho Senators in amended form within ono hour thereafter. Hlmllar action occurred to-dnv after tho Orady amendment had been made to the bill. No measures, unless affecting n cor poration whofenred delay hasovcr before been printed with such hnsto: In fact tho Fallows bill on each occasion, when It was amended by HcnntorFord and HenatorOriuly.wasrcjirlnted as amended before tho amendments had been adopted by tho Henate, nnd were In the Capitol ready to bo slapped on the files tho tuinuto tho Senato acted. And this Is nil done in the In terest ot tho Amsterdam avenuo proporty owners. WHITE'S CIVIL SERVICE JIILT. Republican Senators Mnkn It n Party Measure nnd It vlll I'nss. Auiany. March 22.
