Senator Mackey said that al- 1 though, ns alleged, the Placing of the power A I of assessing the value of the franchlies with I the State Tax Commission might inure to the l I political beneflt of tho Itepubltcan party, he f - feared this less thanlhe did tha great Injustice I t, which the original Ford bill would work upon I those to be taxod under lta provisions, and h f T therefore, in the Interest ot justice and er.uul- ! Ity. laid politics aside and would voto for the i amendad bill, believing it to be a great Im- prpvement over the original bill. In staling , this he expressed the sentiments of Senator A Bamaperitar, his oollsague from Buffalo, and .' Senator La Roche of Brooklyn.

Mr. Allds said MK that one of tha strongest urguments In favor II of the bill was the statement of the Democrats 9 that their objection to It was because of the m possibilities ol political Inlluence to ba exerted ,' by the State Comtnlssinn.

Tho Governor EM 1 nlnted out that ho could not koop tho new bill W for a few days to look It ovor, as ho had in h tended, for the reason that If ho did so ho would . El- have no choice between tho two bills now in U his hands, as tho original Ford bill dies on Hat IB t'rday night unless eoonor acted upon. If ho IB was to have a choice, therefore be must de IB cldeatonce, and ho thought ha was ready to .X!&.

Henlso took It tor granted that no member ot tho Stato Tax Commission would give out a statement of methods of as sessment which ho might consider should be tho propor ones to ho employed. The Governor said he believed they would consult enrefullv with the Htate Comptroller's department and with tho Assessors of various cltloh and otlior officials before being prepared to come to a conclusion as to the methods of nsssssment. Tho Governor said bo hud beef studying tho matter closely himself and that ho would con sult with tho State Tax Commissioners. In answer to a question n to how tho $7.). 000 appropriation for the Dewey celebration was to bo expended, the Governor said that members ot the Legislature had told him that thoy understood that $(15,000 should go for tho expenses of the National Guard and that 10. UOO vvns to bo spent under tho direction of the legislative commltteo on tho celebration. During tho next two days tho Oovernor says no hopes the general publlo will benr with him, ns ho will bo up to his ears In work, de ciding ns to what of the remaining thirty-day bills ho shall sign and which of them he shall let die. He hopes ho will not have any callers except those having urgent business In con nection with these Dills.

All Dnnger In the Mississippi Over, with rractlenlly No I.ois. New Orleans, May 25. Tho high wator of lBOfl has been pronounced ended officially, with a minimum ot damaco from overflow. Tho fall in tho Mississippi has been so rapid that the levoc authorities said to-day that tho danger was past, relieving tho resi dents In the lowlands ot the strain to which thoy liavo beon subjected for moro than two months since tho freshet began. Tho Missis sippi roso very high, far abovo tho maximum established previous to 1800, and would havo caused groat damage from ovorflow had not the levees boen raised several feet. Although at times the situation was serious, only one important crevasse occurred, on Bayou La Fourche, noar ltacoland. Near tho mouth of tho river, whore the lovcea havo beon con structed only recently and nro very low, the water from tho river ran over freely, but did llttlo damage. As tho result of the announcement to-day that tho danger was over, planters along the river havo begun actively planting, whloh they havo delayed through fear of cruvnsses, Tho exporlonce of 1H)U has strongly vindloated the levee system, which has withstood a flood bo fore which the levees would have been swept in previous years. The only weak point In the Louisiana lovee system. Bayou La Fourche, Is to bo protected In future by cutting off the bayou from communication with the Missis sippi, thus doing away with Its need ot levees. ELECTMCITT FINES ORAIX DV8T.

I Adt, I IIADLEY, YALE'S PRESIDENT political xcosostr rnorr$8oit xo MVCCBKD PRESIDENT DWIQUT. Tha Tot of tha Corporation Bald to nave Dean Practically Unanimous Students Receive tha Item with Much Enthusi asm New Fraatdent Not at Clergyman. NkwHatric, May 25. Arthur Jwlnlug Had loy, professor ot political eoonomy in Yale, was eleotod Prealdent of Yale University thla atter noon to succeed Timothy Dwlght, who ten dcrod his resignation several montliB ago and who refuaod to reconsider hla determination to resign when requested by the mambera of the corporation. , With the announcement that Trot. Hadley had beon eleotod the Information waa made publio that the resignations of Franklin B. Dexter, tho Secretary of the corporation, and Henry W. Farnam, Trcasuror of the univer sity, had boen prosonted, tho former to take effect at commencement and tha latter on Dec. Land that tho resignations had beon ac copted. The election ot Prof. Hadley was expected. It was predicted In Tux Bun several weeks ago, but the resignations of the Secretary nnd Treasurer wero a surprise. By some It waa taken to Indicate that they were not In sympa thy with the chotco ot Prof. Hadley. This la not tho case, according to the boat authority. Prof. Dexter and Mr. Farnam will still remain as ardent supporters ot Yale as they ever were, and Prof. Dexter, It is said, will remain con nected with the univoralty aa assistant libra rian of tho University Library. Tho meeting of the corporation was called at 11:20 o'clock, all the members being present except the llov. G. L. Walker of liartford, whose condition Is still critical from the effecta ot a atroko of paralysis some months ago. Nothing was dono about tho selection of a President at the morning session, nnd tho cor poration adjourned for lunch at 1 o'clock. When the members roasHombled nt 2:30 o'clock tho question was almost Immediately taken up. A very brlof ofllolal announcement was made of tho proceedings of the corpora tion, but It was gleaned that the choice of Prof. Hadley on the last vote was practically unani mous. The second choice was Henry P.Wright, the dean ot tho faculty. ltwasnlso announced that tho resignation of Louis S. Deforest. M. D clinical professor of melclno, was accepted, to take effect at commencement. A successor to the late Prof. Marsh was chosen In Prof. Charles N. Boecher, who will have the title of Curator of the Geo logical Collections. Dr. George L. Amerman, 'IKI.'waB appointed registrar of the eclentlflo school, and Dr. George V. Eaton, Instructor in fomparatlve osteology in tha same school. Mr. I. Malsamoto. formerly assistant in the psy chological laboratory, was reappointed to that flaco. and Mr. K. F. Geiaer, now a student in he graduate school, was appointed an assist ant In history In the college. A gift of S5.000 was reported from Mrs, Thomas G. Bennett of New Haven, to bo added to the foundation of tho S. W. W. Winchester Srlzeln the School ot Fine Art: also an ed ition of $1,000 from Henry F. F.ngllsh ot New Haven to the fund of the Allco K. English Prize In the Art Hchool. It waa voted to pro ceed with tha Immediate erection ot the final building for the Law School In front ot the presont building on Elm street. The election of Prof. Hadley as President is highly satisfactory to both graduates and un dergraduates, and tne latter aro giving vent to their enthusiasm to-night. After dinner they met at tho fence, and. with songs and cheers. firocoeaed to Prof. Hadley's house, where hey halted and Insisted that he come out. He appeared and made a speech, in which he said ho appreciated the high honor which tho corporation had paid him and was touched at the manner with which the news was mot by the students. Then tho procession marched to the house of President Dwlght. who made a humorous speech to tho studenta. When the campus was reached a hugo bonfire was lighted, and, though thla is against the rules, thero was no attempt on the part of the authorities to pre vent a celebration In this manner. Arthur Twining Hadley was torn in this city 43 years ago, nnn Is the son of tho lato Prof. James Hadley of Yale, tho author of several standard text books on the Greek language. He was educated In tho publlo schools of this city, and was graduated from tho academical department ot Yale in the class of 'TO. standing at the head of his class. Hinco his graduation he has been continuously employed in Yale as Instructor nnd later as professor ot political economy, and during that time has gained a national reputation as nn authority. Ho Is the author of several books treating ot the management of railroads, and for several years waa Labor Commissioner of Connecticut. His election marks n new era in the policy of Ynle.nahelathatlratman to be chosen to the position who was not a clergyman. It is also a victory for the "younger.elemeut." which has nil along urged that Yale should have a man at her bead who was young, energetic and physi cally able to shoulder tho burdens of the office. Allot these requisites are believed to bo pos sessed by Prosldent-oloct Hndley. Although many names have been mentioned In connection with the Yale Presidency, the election of Prof. Hndley was expected confi dently, especially during tho past few weeks, when the sentiment of the graduates seemed to be so unanimous In his favor.

TUB MMOTIATION8 H'lTU CANADA. American Correspondent of the London Times Soya They Are Hopeless Now. tptetal Cablt Ditpaleh le Tsa Row, Loudon, May 20. The Now York correspond ent ot tho Timet, who has hitherto been op tlmlstlo regarding an agreement between the Amorlcan and Canadian High Commissioners, says now that the situation has become almost hopeless owing to tha Insistence of the Canadians that they recelva a slice of Alaska. The correspondent deplores the Canadian position in upsetting a settle ment, which was within sight, and extola the conciliatory attitude of President McRlnley and tha American officials. Ho relates In detail how thenrranrerejjntwaa on tha verge of oompletlon when Lord Salis bury, under prosauro from Canada, withdrew hla acquiescence. Ho declares that tha presont rotations between Ottawa nnd London, as un derstood IA Washington, threaten to affoct disastrously the recently Improved re lations between the United States and Groat Britain. Tho correspondent In stances the Clayton-Butwvr troaty, and says that a now treaty perfectly satisfactory to both Govornmonta haa already been drawn, but Great Britain now declines to act on it, saying ahe cannot afford to submit to Parliament any now troaty question until tha Canadian de mands In Alaska aro satisfied. Tho Timet, commenting on tha foregoing despatch, says It hopes Its correspondent takea an unduly gloomy view ot the situ ation. It declines to exhaust Its emo tion! prematurely over a cataatrophe which may never occur. It delicately ban tors Its correspondent on his deapondoncy. and declines to pronounce a definite opinion on the Canadian-American question without fuller knowledge. It says, however: "What Is quite obvious from the tone of our correspondent's communication la thatthoso Americans for whom ha speaks do not grasp tho nature ot our relations with tha self-governing colonies. It Is as much out of rlaco to talk of Canadian opinion as the power behind the British Government, deterrins it from acting as its own chief Minister and Ambassa dor think reasonable, aa it would be touaeaimllar language of tho opinion ot an American State. The Americans cannot expect us to do what they would neverdo themselves It they were In our position. Thoy cannot expect us to Ignore the popular will ot that portion ot the empire which Is primarily affected by the negotiations, or to aettio the question between London and Washington behind its back. The Ttrntt romlnds the Amoricana that In the dlaputa with Great Britain about tho frontier ot Maine the local Legislature pro tested agalnat tho award ot the umpire and the Senate rejected it though President Jack son would have joined the British Government In accepting it.

Sptcial CahU DuvatcS to Thb Srir. The Haoui. May 25. Among the many falsehoods telegraphed from here regarding the Peace Conference Is one to tha effect that the American and English delegatea have jointly agreed to support a sohema of arbitra tion prepared by the latter. Equally untrue la another statemont which represents the United States aa having already submitted a scheme for a permanenttrlbunal of arbitration framed on the basis that was proposed by Sir Edmnnd Hornby some years ago. Tha fact is that tho Amorican delegates are still engaged in perfecting an arbitration proposal, which they will submit at the next aeaslon of the committee. This proposal will probably be completed to-morrow. There was a freo nnd eenoral discussion at to-day's Beaslon of the Laws ot War Commit tee, and it was decided to take up the Geneva Convention paragraph by paragraph. It ia aignlflcant that the delegates. Instead of ocoupylngthelrseatsasspoclflodat the plenary eoeaiona of tlfo conference, prefer to arrange themselves according to their natural affini ties. Thus the Americans and British sit to gether, tha Germans and Austrlana form an other group. Ac. Petitions and deputations continue to arrive hero. Four dolegntcs from the Peace Associa tion arrived to-day, vainly hoping that M. do Staal. the President ot the con ference, would receive them. An album, prepared by tho International Peace As sociation of Women, will bo prosonted to M. do Staal to-morrow. It contains tha record of peace meetings in nineteen nations and a poem by "Carmen Sylva." Queen Elizabeth of Roumanla. This movement has received en couragement from Queon Wllhelmlna. The Earl of Aberdeen is here watohlng the prog ress of arbitration. In which ha waa always keenly Interested. The Bruasela conference sootlon of the Com mittee on the Lawa ot War haa resolvod to dls ouea olauae by clause the propoaala made at Brussels In 1874.
