Ex-Alderman Wallace Talks to Cale donian club. At the meeting of the Caledonian club held in tha Courier building last evening ex-hAlderman George Wallace read an instructive., and interesting pa per on ."Municipal. .Ownership." Mr. Wallace endeavored to show the effect iveness of municipal 'control and its ad vantages oyer private' control. He cited especially; the evidence . given by the city of Glasgow of the utility and ad vantage of municipal- ownership. He stated that the results in Glasgow have shown that the street railways of a large city can be run with im provement over, the conditions in pri vate ownership cities, while at the same time the city was able to run the roads on half the Income of the com- ! pany, thus allowing for sinking funds and reserves. At the same time he I said no disadvantages to offset the ad- ; vantages had so far appeared, unere (was no grafting or corruption in the j service, employes are kept as long as efficient and merit determines advance- MORGAN k CO S BOOKS ARE TO BE PRODUCED (Continued from First Page.)

"Yours truly, "New York Life Insurance Company, "By Thomas H. Buckner, "Fourth Vice-President. "Approved ' 18th day of November, 1901." v.v ' : : This is the contract under which Mr. Desbecker, with a number of other agents, entered the employ of the New York Life in Buffalo. - - While Mr. Perkins was on the stand during the afternoon there was some what of a clash between the witness and Mr. Hughes, the first of anything of this nature that has occurred since the committee began its sessions. It was when Mr. Perkins was testifying to the moneys in the "Nylic" fund, of which he is a trustee. Mr.Perkins did not want it to appear on the records that the agents paid part of their sal aries into the fund under contract, un less the words "and bonuses" appear ed. He said to Mr. Hughes that he (Mr. Hughes) was trying to get away from something, and the counsel hotly retorted that he was not, and that if Mr. Perkins would "answer his question much better progress, would be ma'de with the investigation. Earlier in the day' Henry R. Win throp, of the Equitable, while On' the stand presented a statement of the transfers of the stock of the Equitable at the time of Its change of manage ment and directorate. Most of the transfers Mr. Winthrop was able to ex plain, and some he was not. At the time of these transfers Mr. Winthrop was the holder of twenty-five shares. He thought the actual owner was James H. Hyde, as he turned the checks for dividends over to Mr. Hyde. Mr. Winthrop was again called to the stand just before adjournment, Mr. Buckner having given way, to explain a trustee account brought up earlier in the day. Mr. Winthrop presented a typewritten statement of the account, and said the loans would be paid off in a few days and the collateral entered on the books of the company. Before Mr. Buckner retired, however, he was asked to produce a statement of the expenses of the Paris office, with a rec ord of the real estate held there and the business that was under that juris diction. Mr. Buckner had been ques tioned most of the afternoon on the foreign business and its' cost to the home office. The committee will resume its ses sions to-morrow. ENTIRE CUT PLANS ARE ADOPTED BY ALDERMEN (Continued from First Page.) speaker said that the poorer people of the Seventh ward ought to be given some consideration. He granted that the center of the city was being taken proper care of, but that the raising of the bridges in the Seventh ward would make worse mud hoes of some of the streets than they are at present. He did not think the committee was to be thanked at all for what it had done. Alderman Loos stated that the Crown street matter was a- separate matter in itself, and that when it. came' up for consideration the public would he given plenty of chance , to, baeard-before aennite action was taiten. ;--" - Chairman Johnson next called upon City Engineer Kelly to answer Mr. Mil ler's contentions. He explained the grades and showed Jhat they would be much less than at present and that many of the bridges would be lower. In fact, the plans are much more fa vorable in these respects than the orig inal plans commended by the railroad commissioners. Alderman Langley asked Mr. Kelly if Madison street would be affected, as Mr. Miller had stated, and Mr. Kelly replied that Madison street would not be changed in any way. Attorney George D- Watrous stated that he would like to say a few words concerning Mr. Donovan's contention. He said that the engineers would need a little scope in their work, but that if the board objected to this clause he and his associate. Attorney Buekland, on behalf of the company, would waive this clause. In reference to Mr. Rich's objection Mr. Watrous stated that the railroad company intended to carry out the plans as presented in good faith with the city. Alderman Smith asked Attorney Watrous if, under the plans, it would not bind the city to extend Crown street, and Mr. Watrous replied that this matter rested entirely with the city. He was then asked several other questions, which he answered. Alderman Loos, as there were no more present who expressed their de sire to be heard, moved that the com mittee of the whole go Into executive session, and this motion was carried with an amendment that the corpora tion counsel and the city engineer be requested to remain. With these two exceptions and the city sheriff and the page, the room was cleared of all ex cept the members of the board. Just what happened in the executive session is not known other than that the aldermen asked numerous questiosn of the corporation counsel and the city engineer. That there were a number of minor objections made to various parts of the report was self-evident as the session lasted over an hour. When the doors of the aidermanic chamber were thrown open President Townshend called the board of alder men together. Chairman Johnson then presented the report of the committee of the whole, which recommended .that the report of the city's cut commission be adopted and that the petition as pre sented by the railroad company be granted. . Alderman Nathanson moved imme diately that the report of the committee of the whole be adopted and the mo tion was seconded by several of the aldermen. Alderman Courtney imme diately jumped to his feet and amend ed the motion to the effect that the last thirteen words of the sixth section be struck out. These are the words to which Mr. Miller had referred in. the public hearing and were as follows: "The alterations proposed are more fully described In detail hereafter, subject to such further alterations as the exigencies of the work may re quire." Mr. Courtney said that he thought that this section might Involve the city in considerable trouble later. The amendment was seconded by Alder man Smith, who said that he objected to such a cla'use from a legal stand point, as he did not consider it suffi ciently binding -"or definite. Tjrta anlrt that it Innked vry much as though the amendment j questioned the" feood faith of the rail road company; "and he thought thlB hardly fair. He said, however, that as the attorneys for the railroad company had signified their willingness to have the clause removed should It prove a stumbling bldcK.'- why he did not per sonally object to it if it were taken out, Alderman All'on asked the board if It had not faith In the corporation coun sel, who had said that the clause, would not hold in any bourt sufficiently to al low the railroad company to deviate to any extent from the general plans. He had also stated, In the executive ses sion at the time, that it might benefit the city by having it left in the agree ment. Alderman Nathanson objected to the clause on the ground that it gave the railroad company too much power. Alderman Johnson said, 'It's of no great Importance anyway. Take it out If you wish." Alderman Marlow said, "Chuck , it out." Alderman Homan said that it belit tled the board to squabble over this matter, which placed the board in the light that It was suspicious of every body and everything. He then said, "Let's hear what Engineer Harte of the railroad company has to say aibou't ft." Alderman Johnson moved that Mr. Harte be given the privilege of the floor, but President Townshend ruled the motion out of order, because there was already a motion before the house. Alderman McKerniss favored letting the words remain. Alderman Woodford facetiously re marked, "Mr. President, I object to the removal of the words on general prin ciples, owing to the fact that there are thirteen of them." (Laughter). Alderman McKerness requested Pres ident Townshend to invite Engineer Harte to speak on this question, as a motion to that effect would be out of order, and as there was no objection this request was granted. Mr. Harte stated that in some cases, as the work progressed, it might be possible to shade some of the grades given under the present plan a little lower than specified! but that if this clause were stricken out the road would be bound by law to adhere to the exact grades specified. An aye and nay vote was taken on the amendment, which was lost, il to 7, the members voting as follows: Aye, Aldermen Nathanson, Courtney, Burke, Collins, Devine, Langley and Smith; nay, Aldermen Homan, Johnson, Mc Kerness, Healy, Maxwell, Hamilton, Loos, Woodford, Marlow, Brown and Allen. At this point several of the aldermen took the floor one after the other and explained why they had objected. to parts of the plans during the delibera tions, and Alderman Loos made a strong speech as to how the city would be benefited by accepting "this splen did arrangement." ' . l. The question was called for, but be fore it could be put by the chair Alder man Smith took the floor and said that while he did not wish to hold up mat ters, the rules of the board explicitly state that any report before it can be passed must have a second reading, and the report in this Instance had only been read once. The chair held that the point ct order was well taken. At this point it looked very much as If the whole matter was going to be held up. Alderman Johnson then made a speech In which he stated that while he objected generally to any suspension of the rules, he moved in this instance that they be suspended. This motion was seconded by Alderman Loos. Alderman Smith stated that this would be unnecessary if unanimous consent, for immediate consideration could be gained and Alderman Johnson then withdrew his motion and called for unanimous consent When the ris ing was was taken all present stood up but Alderman Langley, and then there was again a most serious "deadlock," during which matters were again dis cussed, and all kinds of plans consid ered, one of which was offered by Al derman Homan to the effect that the report be left on the table for a few minutes and then taken up and read for a second time. This has never been attempted in the board before, and there was considerable doubt as to whether it would be legal or not. Cor poration Counsel Daggett was asked if it would ie, but replied that he was not sufficiently acquainted with the rules of the board to know. Time was thereofre given him 'to consider this question. While this was being done Alderman Langley took the floor. He said that be did not wish to appear to be holding up matters just for the sake of doing so but that he was not satisfied that all as as it should be. "However," he said, "as it seems the wish of all the members except myself to put this thing through to-night, I will withdraw my objection to unanimous consent." (Loud applause.) ." Unanimous consent was then granted and 'the report of the committee was next unanimously adopted, thereby blearing up the much debated cut mat. ter. ADVASCE ly DISCOUNT HATE. imperial Bank of Germany Likely to Follow London's Lena. Berlin, Sept. 28. The advance in the . . . . . .. a . i. r . , 1 . T7" el I rate or, aiscouui. oi uj joaua. v- "e land from three to four per cent, to day had only a slight effect on the Ber lin market- Nevertheless the event atr tracted close attention-, and was much discussed on the Boerse, where a fur ther "advance in the discount rate of the Imperial bank of Germany was regard ed ns nnptfaible. , . It Js . Understood, however, that the I Imperialbank will defer action until after the publication of the return for October 7. One favoraible element in the situation is that much of the recent discounting at the Imperial bank was upon short bills, and hence there is a prospect- that the status will be rap idly recovered after the turn of the quarter. Berlin bankers believe that the effect bt the advance in the Bank of England rate Will be to divert American gold to Paris, the Bank of France being the best able at present to part with gold in view, of Its enormous accumulations during the past few months. - Although American 'balances hfre have been greatly increased of late, owing to the purchases of American corn, cotton and railway securities by 'Germany, it is believed these can be adjusted without withdrawing German Bold for New, York. . ; " SHOCKING CHIME. Mother nnl Four Children Murdered in f ' ' ;. Their Home; Edna, Tex., Sept. 28. Mrs. A. J. Con dl.it and four children, a daughter of thirteen and three boys from six to ten years old, were murdered in cold blood at their home near here to-day.
