NEW YORK Nov 16 W K Vander
bilt attended meetings of the boards of
directors or three Vandcrbilt railroads in
tho Grand Central Station today and
with President IV II Newman Chair
man Chauncey M Derew and J Pierpont
Morgan discussed New York Central mat
ters in a meeting of the executive com
mittee
Only routine matters were considered
a member of the board said after the
meeting of this committee Some small
contracts were approved and others were
ordered
Mr Vandcrbilt said nothing about any
plan to form a proprietary company to
hold junior Vandcrbilt stocks and I de
cot Leliec such a proposition mill come
before our board for some time
Milijcct Aut Hrouclicfl
At a meeting of the directors cf the
New York Chicago and St Louis Rail
road Nickel Tlate President William II
Conniff and the other executive officers
were re elected Tho announcement ef a
financial policy that would take tho Nick
el Plate stocks out of the treasury of the
Lake Shore Railroad Company and put
them in the control of a new proprietary
company in such manner that the New
York Central stockholders who own tho
Lake Shore could realize the profit that
their equity Justifies was not made
Mr Vanderbilt declined to make any
statement regarding his plans or his pur
poses A man who should know said
There Is no possibility of any Vandcr
bilt plan of readjustment of junior securi
ties being made at this time The condi
tions are not propitious So long as any
uncertainty attaches to the floating of the
J4CO000OCO of stock of the Northern Se
curities Company there will be no
launching of a new Vandcrbilt scheme
It is true that the Vanderbilts own
many millions of railroad stocks which
are woni two and three times their cost
but until these stocks can be marketed
In a way that will meet the approval of
the public there Is not likely to be any
attempt at establishing a Vanderbilt pro
prietary company
3Ir Aanderbilt Self Cantnlnci
It is not possible for any associate or
subordinate of W K Vanderbilt to tell
wnat is going on in his mird He keeps
hts own counsel very closely and he never
declares his plans until they are ready for
immediate fulfillment He has not jet sug
gested any departure from present condi
tions
-The Lake Shore directors re elected
M Depew chairman and did
nothing else of public interest so far as
Ife known There was no meeting of the
lljchigan Central directors- today but
there will be in the latter -part of next
month when the rate or uiTidmd be
considered

OPERATIONS FOR FISCAL YEAR

ConlllcdiiK Kllorl
The District Board of Charities
through George II Wilson their secre
tary yesterday submitted to the Com
missioners their first annual report It
covers the operations f the depaitment
from its organization last year to the
end of the fiscal year The report is of
a preliminary character dealing with
the principles involved in the adminis
tration of and the conclusions
of the board in reference to Important
matters of policy
The first duty after the organization
of the board on July 12 1900 was to
study existing conditions rather than to
do things They adopted certain rules
to govern the proceedings of the board
and appointed committees to study spe
cial subjects comlnir under their consid
eration The board as organized con
sisted of S W Woodward President
Dr Charles P Ncili Vice President
and George W Cook John Joy Edson
and Simon Wolf
Preparing tlie itImutcH
According to the report the real ac
tivity of the board began in September
1900 when the work of preparing tlie
estimates for 1902 was taken up The
board found it necessary to devote a
great deal of attention to this work
and to afford hearings to representa
tives of various institutions Much time
was consumed in this way During the
year thirty one regular and special
meetings were held nnd these with
rare exceptions were attended by the
entire membership of the board Much
time was given also by the board and
Its committees In visiting institutions
For convenience the various Institu
tions under their supervision are con
sidered by the board under four di
visions namely 1 Iteformatories and
correctional Institutions 2 medical
charities 3 child carins Institutions
and 4 miscellaneous institutions
These divisions correspond to the four
standing committees of the board each
of which is expected to give special care
and study to the department assigned
to it
The report shows that the total com
mitments in the District during the
year 1901 were 4023 as compared with
4210 during the previous year showing
a falling oft of 1S7 commitments The
dally average number of prisoners
hhows a slight increase the daily aver
age for the year 1901 being 260 as com
pared with 255 for the year 1900 The
most satisfactory feature in connection
with statistics of commitments is the
falling off in the number of commit
ments of boys and girls fifteen years of
age and under
Condition of Mntc AVorkliomec
The board considers tho conditions at
the male workhouse as very unsatisfac
tory because of the necessity of confin
ing from eight to twelve prisoners In a
single room but these conditions they
say will soon be remedied by the con
struction of the new workhouse for
males work upon which has been com
menced
It Is stated that the work at the Re
form School for Boys has continued
along the same lines as formerly The
daily average number of inmates at
that institution during the past year
was 220 as compared with a daily aver
age of 197 for the preceding year
At the Itefirm School for Girls the
new building has been completed and
opened thus enabline the insitutlon to
receive white girls and obviating the
necessity of sending young white girla
to the workhouse The building Is well
equipped and on the whole well adapt
ed for its purposes
Probation hj Mem Commended
The report commends the operation of
the probation system under which
youthful offenders xire permitted to stay
In their homes during the usual period
of punishment under the supervision of
a probationary officer
The work of the hospitals and dispen
saries during the year appears from the
report to have been about as satisfac
tory as could be expected with the fa
cilities available has been as In
former years some dilllculty about se
curing admiss ion of chronic cases ns all
of the general hospitals with the excep
tion of Washington Asylum Hospital
and Providence Hospital as a nile de
cline to admit tfhe cases One of the
most encouraging features in connec
tion with the hospital work of the year
has been a further increase in tho pay
patient work at the Columbia Hospital
The Washington Asylum Hospital
has coitlnued through the year to ren
der efilcent service In caring for the in
digent sick
Some Important changes were made
by the board In the work of medical
charities which took effect July 1 1901
These changes were brought about by
executive orders of the District Com
missioners whereby the physicians to
the poor were assigned to work under
the immediate supei vision of the board
of charities The almshouse service was
also placed under th immediate super
vision of the board and the issuing of
permits for admission to hospitals and
other public institutions was made the
duty of the board
The AlniNhoiiHe
The dally average number of Inmates
in the almshouse duilng the year was
237 as compared with 220 In the pre
vious year Of this average number
57 were white males 31 white females
84 coloied males and C2 colored females
The conditions at the almshouse during
the year were largely similar to those
obtaining In the preceding year
In concluding their comment on the
problems with which they have to deal
the report says
The public charities of Washington
are organized some ulider the District
Commissioners others under the De
partment of the Interior and still
others under the Department of Justice
All this simply tends to confusion and
lack of uniformity In administration
The board believes that all District
Charities should be under the Imme
diate supervision of the District Com
missioners and it therefore recom
mends that those charities now organ
ized under departments of the Federal
Government should be transferred to
the control of the District Commission
