Tin' Regents held one of tho largest meet-Inc-
in their hltory to-day to protest against
tli" p.isige of the Whlto bill. Gov. Roosevelt
Is an evoflloln member of tho ooard. The
I'ther Regents present were Chancellor Anson

Thesess.on lasted three hours. Tho meet

practically: unanimous agreement on the
course to be pursued. Superintendent Skin
ner ."aid lie would join tho Regents In keoplng
the discu-..-lon of the needed legislation for
nct tear nn a hlch educational plane, free
fr mi personal or political considerations. The
Il'n ci'imnif Committee has already arranged
io cive up tho most Important session of tho

ctilon ot.unll'.caiion. and the Department nf
l'utiiic Instruction lias been invited to seloct

now 'hot after a thorough but wholly friendly
dl'cuilon during the vear a bill will be ready
for i he next Legislature which will bo heartily
supported hj the educational interests of the
st if and will securo a practical unification
with great publlo benefits. The following pre
amble and i evolutions explanatory ot their
M-ltion were adopted by the llcuents:
"The Regents, reconvened to consider cer
tain proposed amendments. to the Educational
law, take occasion to stute that their lmpres

dlmlulth their powers.' But they believe, that
iu tho di-i'liarge of their responsibllltiei'Ithoy
oucht with all resoect and courtesy to point
out the daniter to the lawmaking body when
ever they conceive that the educational work.
of the Slate Is liable to suffer damage. Under
this conviction they have declared their oppo
titlon to certain features of the White bill now
pending in tho Senate. .. . ,
"Having said this, the Regents beliovo that
the Lent dlpo-dtlon of a Question of so grave
lniiiortani'O would bo u postponement for an
other rear. In order that these new provisions
of law mat bo more cloarly understood, nud,
after public dUcusslou by educators through
out the state, more clearly defined. But in
amueh as tho Regents have only the strong
c!-ire to accomplish two things, namelv, unl
flcitlon and ficedom from pclltiout control, it
is herl.y
"Itr-Hiprtl, That the Regents declare thom
eives ready to favor heartily any well consid
ers! law which will secure unification ot the
educational system of the State und its pres
ervation from political Interference and in
trigue, and to oc3ept any cbans in the Con

In liisrcniniksliov. Roosevelt said substantial
li" tint there was not the slightest chance that
the White bill would phss nt this pslon It
woulii l, a. -real mlstako not to scourc unlfl-
I cation. He had believed strongly from tho
beginning that tha Regonts should be tho ap
pointing I'uvver. but they muit face tho fact
that th" I.-glolaturo will not turn over tho
Mililp aehoois to tho Regonts as now constl
tutei When he pioposed this he got no sup

THE DILI, KILLED.
By a vote of 'M to 18 the 8enato to-night
strtiok out tho enacting clauso of Honntor
White s Educational bill. It came up In Com
Ivi ?. "' ..tno Wholo and upon 8onator
VMilto's motion tho bill was amended by tho
adoption ot the scheme suggosted by Senator
1 -Ion R. Brown, which provides for tho election
of tho Rogcnts of tho University by judicial
dlstriots.
Senator Grady said there were many objec
tions to tho bill. nnd. while It had Its good
points, ho thought tho question was too Impor
tant to be legislated upon nt this session. Al
though the Senntor who had charge of the
bill was undoubtedly familiar with Its
provisions. Sonntor Grady did not think the
other Senators wore. As Sonntor White would
not agree not to pr-ss tho bill If It was allowed
to go to a third reading. Setiutor Grady moved
to strike out the enacting clause.
Senator White defended the measure. While
no did not expect tho bill would pass this year
no could not agree not to push It to tho last
point. He snur he had given tho bill much at
tontlon aud .hoped tho Sonate would not
summarily dispose of tho result of his
labois by killing tho bill. Senator Grady's
motion to kill the bill was then carried. When
tho report of tho Committee of tho Whole
was mado to the Senate, Mr. White moved
to disagree , with the report and that the
hill as amtfnded be ordereit to a third rending.
Upon the understanding that tho bill would
not be brought up again tho opponents of the
measure had no objection to Its advancement.
Afterward Senator Whlto said ho would not
press the bill, realizing ho could not securo tho
twenty-six otos necessary to pass It in the
Senate,

and the other three parts are so well in hand
that 'ho book is to bo published during tho

various institutions to ntcertnln in how many
places certain words which had come In.trom
only one or two colleges might have been over

sent not only the definitions of the words, but
the nnmes of the institutions, whether ono or
twenty, whore tlio words are In use, with the
difference In meaning whleh the ame word
has nt different colleges or unlvorsitlesor
seminaries. Thus "animal" means at Tufts a
Welsh rabbit as well ns a translation. At
Hobart. Muehlenberg. Phillips Lxcter, Smith
nnd Westotn Reserve, It means a translation.

Friction Over Mayor Ilooa's Appointment
of n Comptroller.
All tho new olty officials appointed by Mayor
Hoos of Jersey City last week, with the excep
tion of the Directors of the Board of Educa
tion, took possession of their offices yesterday
nnd tho now boards organized. Tho Board of
lMucatlou will organize the first week In May.
Tho Police and FIro departments and the Citv
Hal Commission, which have been undor lie
publican contiol for six yenrs.' passod Into
Domocrntlo contiol. Tho change was made
without any friction, except in tho Comptioll
er's office. George 11. Hough, the retiring
Comptroller, who is a Democrat, although not
an nctivo partisan, feels aggrieved at the fail
ure of tho Mayor to reappoint him. He has
declared that the Mnyor, ns a condition of his
reappointment, domnndod that ho should dis
miss all tho Republican e'erks in his office.
This Mr. Hough refused to do. nnd Robert S.
Jordan, n brother of Conrad N. Jordan, was
appointed to tho place.
Mr. Jordan went Into the office about lliflO
A. M. yostordny accompanied by his doputy.
Stephen M. F.gnn, nnd they were received by
Mr. Hough nnd his deputy, Frank P. Van
Satin. Mr. Hough and Mr. Van Saun had
worked up to midnight on Saturday nnd all
day Sunday gotting tho books posted up to
date.
Mr. Hough hnndod the keys of his desk and
snfes to his successor and turned over all the
books and accounts, lie said thnt tho resig
nation ot tlio entire staff was at Mr. Jordan's
disposal and added: "Owing to tho action of
tlio Mayor In connection with your nopolnt
mont, my own eelf-rospect compels my Imme
diate withdrawal from the office. Had your
nppolntmont been agreed upon a month or
more ago It would have given me pleasure to
have explained freely tho routine business of
the office, provided you desired It. nnd It
would also have given me an opportunity to
mako other business arrangements. I could
no, now. however. In the specified time. Im
part information In the intrioaclesof theoffioo
which it takes vears to acquire. I hope you
will enjoy n prosperous term nnd the loyal sup
port of your subordinates, as has been my
good fortune, and that when your term of
office exnires you will be'treated with more
consideration than I have been."
After offering to help Mr. Jordan out of any
difficulty ho might encounter Mr. Hough re
tired, accompanied by Deputy Van Saun.
A few minutes ufterward all tho clerks, who
hnd been holding a conference among thom
'elves. decided to vacate, their places, and they
left without notifying Comptroller Jordan.
The clerks are M. M. Kenyon, Ienao van Saun
nnd David H. Hilton. This will cause the now
Comptroller nnd his deputy some embarrass
ment, but they say they will work overtime
and endeavor to master the situation.
Col. Simuel D Dickinson, tho retiring City
Treasurer, turned the office over to his suc
cessor. Gen William C Heppcnhelmer. The
new Treasurer will retain William Klv as his
deputy for tlio present at least. Col. Dicklti

STEAMSIIIV FOOTRALL TEAMS.

Some of the Illg Transatlantic Ships.
There were seen the other day In West street,
on the Farm, as tho broad space lying between
the street-ear tracks and the hulk head Is called,
a number of men tossing n football about. It
seemed llkonn odd place for football, the river
front: but these wore men from tho football
team of a big ocean steamer taking an oppor
tunity for a littlo practice ashore. While foot
ball Is not takon up hy the men aboard ship so
much as some other athletic sports, there are
at least threo big British steamships coming
to this port that bavo a football team among
the crew Thoso football teams are alwavs
made up from among the engine room force,
principally from the firemen. The cricketers
nnd he runners nnd other athletes aru likely
to be from among tho stewards.
Steamship football teams may play matches
among thomselves. but thoy are much more
likely to piny with shore teams, nnd more
likely to play with teams In foreign ports than
with teams in the ship's home port. In tho
home port the team is more likely to bo sep
arated and, perhaps, to bo drawn by the attrac
tion of other games ; in the foreign port the,
team is more likely to keep together Football
teams from ocean steamers play games here
with clubs in Hoboken, Newark and Patcrson.

I.leut.-Col. T.eo Among tho Orators,
If the St. Georgo's Socloty had called the
celebration of its linth anniversary at Del
monico's last night an Anglo-American al
liance dinner it would hardly havo bcon a
misnomer. Of nil tho namos which roused
an unusually enthusiastic, assemblage to
vociferous expressions of approval, tho most
potent was that of an Amorlcan, Admiral
Dowey. Over th epoakers' tablo the American
and British flags hung together, and on tho
tables they wero displayed In small slzo to
gether. On the back of the menu tho two na
tional anthems. "God Save tho Quoon" and
"ThoStnr-Spanglod Banner." stood together,
nnd tho toast to tho President of tho United
States met with tho same rosponso which is
given by Englishmen tho world over to tho
toast of " Tho Queen."
About 300 sons of England sat down to tho
dinner iu the largo room, being distributed nt
small tables, eight to a tablo. oxcopt tho guests
of honor, who wero rnngod at a long table ex
tending across tho end of the room. Tho pro
ceedings opened with a speech of welcomo by
tho rresiaent of tho society. Georgo Gray
Wnrd. Ho waked his audience to enthusiasm
hy speaking of tho fraternal feeling botweon
Englishmen and Americans, "tho friendship
between theso groat and kindred nations."
"I want to tell you ono tiling that shows how '
Americans appreciate, tho English," ho Bald.
" Not long ago the great Dewey said that af tor
years of wandering around tho world ho hnd
concluded that tho greatest agency of tho
cause of civilization is tho Imperial policy ot
England."
"Threo cheers for Admiral Dowy I" shoutod
a score of voices nt onco.
Up jumped tho whole body of diners, and,
snatching tho littlo American flags from tho
table, gave tho cheers undor tho waving of tho
Stars and Strlpos. President Wnrd said that
tho first volunteor for tho Spanish-American
war wns a member of tho St. George's Society ;
but when pressed for the name shook his head.
It afterward dovelopod that It was his own son.
Dr. Georco Ward. At tho conclusion of his
speech ho called upon tho nssemblago tojre
soond to the toast, "The Quoen." All rose,
shouting: "ThoQueon. God bless her!" and
drank. Then thoy sang " God Savo tho Queen."
and this time tho Hrttlsli flags woro lifted from
tho tnblos and raised on high. A moment
inter tlio American flags had another
turn, for the Sons of St. Georgo again rose
nnd drank In honor of tho President of tho
United Htntes. und snng "Tho Star-Spanglod
lianner." President Gray Introduced ns tlio
first speaker Judgo J. Franklin Fort of Now
Jersey. He said:
"Tliis can be said with truth, that never
since this country established Its independence
has thcio been a time when Englishmen and
their descendants could gather with such
palpable nssurnnco of general good will
upon the pint of nil tho people of
the ropuhlle as now. To paraphrase tho
great English poet of to-day, lludynrd
Klpllug (great applause, 'John Hull nnd
I'nclo Sam are brothers under tlielr skins.'
TlieSamoan incident proves that. When Eng
land and tho United States llrod together there
vvassllenco In all tho capitals of tho world.
The highest type ot civilisation was repre
sented by tho two peoples behind tlie guns. and
when they move there must bo a basis
of justification for their actions. All that may
bo done by tho meeting of the Czar's pence
commission will not count ns much as tho
united net ion nnd nssurnnco of these two
nations that tho world's poaco is to be main-
toinnil.
"I know that lately one of tho Now York
Judges has heen read out of a certain society
for speaking kindly of England's attitudo in
tho Into war, and I must go carefully or I'll
wake upto-iuorrowandtlndthntanother Judgo
has gone wrong. 1 Laughter and cries of " No !'')
But I think It may fairly bo described ns com
mon knowledge that in tho Into war England
sympnthbod with us, and we'll not do likely to
forgot it." ICncers.J
Tho speaker concluded by calling upon his
healers to do all in their power to advance tlio
movement for a commercial trenty betwoen
thu two countries, granting to England a "most
fa voted nation" clauso.
To respond to the toast of "Her Majosty's
Representatives," the Chairman Introduced
Consul-General Forcy Sanderson, who said:
" There Is one thing which I think will al
ways bind tho two nations together, and that
is the common law which is the same for both
of us. That there Is a fraternal feeling no
Englishman hern in this country can fall to
see. For myself I can say that in no country
on earth havo I met with more cordiality than
here." Applause 1
Tho rresldont then nsked tho society to fill
its glasses in honor ot the rotlring President,
W. M. Massey. Jtobert II. Gurle, on behalf of
the socloty, prosentod to Mr. Massey a line
bronzo of St. George and the Dragon und an
Illuminated addronH. To the next toast. "Thu
Land We Live In." the Itov. J. M Huckloy le
stmnded, Tho next speaker Introduced wns
( apt. A. T Jlahati. who was received with
cheery and bjoko to tlio toast. " The Navy."
He said:
" I suppose the great evont of tho past
twelvemonth, the great oventof all. Is the way
England nud this country have drawn near to
each other It Is only tho feeling In thn hearts
ot tho nations that can be called iu any real
sciiso an alliance. Without that all paper
agreements are but empty forms Dnlcss
we Individually and collectively keep in mind
our common traditions of liberty aud law, this
feeling will not last. This alliance will be for
the good of the whole world. Don't go away
sntlMlod that this condition of things which Is
so highly esteemed must necessarily' continue.
Wo have had dlllerenees and may have again.
It is to tho spirit of common traditions nod to
tho charity of soul that will keep them ullve iu
our memories that I appeal for a lasting al
liance." It'heors.l
Lieut. -Oil Lee. who was one of the British
representatives in Cuba during the war, spoke,
