The promoter of the Slcthodist Uni

would balk their plans and defeat their
alms have upon careful consideration of
t the subject come to tho conclusion that
Instead Mr Carnegies generosity will
work to the Inllnlte advantage of the un
dertaking of the Methodists
The matter was talked of yesterday at

3riiOfIst Projector IlennMircil
While the exact purport of Mr Car
nogles proposition is not definitely
known looking at it from the interpreta
tion and explanation made In The Times
by Hon Carroll D Wright the projectors
of the Methodist University believe that
it will be of Immense alii to their insti
tution
Some cf them were at first inclined to
be somewhat dlsrouragcd frrlng that
after their long years of labor to bring
about so vast an undertaking and the
efforts put forth to secure sufficient fundi
that to have a multi millionaire stoo In
and found an Institution which would
completely overshadow their oim would
compel tho abandonment of the Methodist
University plan After yesterdays meet
ing the board took exactly tho opposite
view of the matter and is more encour
aged than ever Kith the outlook
IlUIinp HurMpi ImlcD lntulInc
Bishop Hurst said last night that as he
now understood Mr Carnegies plan It
was not proposed to erect at great cost a
group of buildings but rather to aid ad
vanced students In profiting by the ex
periments and researches of the Govern
ment and to have easy and free access to
the vat stock of knowledge and Informa
tion which the Government has been ac
cumulating for a hundred years
The Government could not take up any
sectarian matters ho said For Instance
It could not take up the study of com-
paratlve religion and the Carnegie
i project would thus leave a wide field for
I sueh Institutions as the Methodist
vrrltr anri nf Ine Rnmo tlraa enaht Id
students to have the advantage of re
search Investigations experiments and
tens which a private Institution could not
provide He said that after carefully
considering the matter from what Infor
malon has already been made public that
he thought the Methodist University
would be aided and benefited Instead of
Injured by the carrying oat of Mr Car
negies plan
A fnt tf I irtlK
Ho added further that It would mean
that Washington would not only become
the greatest seat of learning in the
United States but one of the greatest If
not actually the greatest In the world
At the meeting of the board the re
ports made by the officers of the univer
sity for the ear just closing were full
of very great encouragement The finan
cial side of the years work was most
gratifying showing a decided gain over
any recent year The large holdings
which the university has in stocks and
bonds whirl Lvo been given for build
ings and endowments are yielding fine
returns
The laying of t e foundation of the Mc
Klnrey Memorial Ohio College of Govern
ment which Is now In progress Is turn
ing afresh the thought of the people to
this enterprise It had been expect d to
lay the corner stone of this memorial
building during the meeting of the trus
tees but the necessary delay In the wrk
and the uncertainty af the eaher at this
time of year prompted the delaying vf
ihs iirprrsslve service until the days tf
rarly spring at which time tho founda

Many kindly references were made by
the trustees to the princely gift which
Mr Carnegie has Just proposed for edu
cational work In Washington As the ex
act conditions surrounding the gift have
not yet been made public no definite
action of course could be taken but It
was fully believed that the work con
templated by Mr Carnegie would make
more certain the necessity and useful
ness of the American University and
would contribute largely toward making
Washington the greatest educational
centre In tho world
Moro than 1600 students from all parts
of the world have already made applica
tion for entrance to some special line of

Tho chief event of the meeting was an
address by Mr George E Allen the as
xlstant secretary of the American Bank
Clerks Association Mr Allen described
the motives of the association In detail
and gave nn enthusiastic commendation
of Its benefits The chief Idea of the or
ganization is tho educational one the
plan being to train clerks to the duties
of the various bank positions that they
will bo able to fill any position from that
of messenger to that of teller satisfac
torily If called upon
Mr Allen said that the system In the
past has tended to make specialists of
clerks and not to give them any knowl
edge outside of their particular fields
He cited many Interesting examples of
the bad effects of this system
Mr C J Bell President of th Ameri
can Security and Trust Company spoko
in favor of the organization nnd Inti
mated that he would advocate Its adop
tion and request the clerks of his own in

EXTENSION OF CONTRACTS

J T Petty the District Auditor yes
terday submitted to the Commissioners
an Important report relative to tho ex
tending of the time of contracts for tho
completion of municipal work Mr Petty
states that I he Comptroller of the Treas
ury uolds that the time limit of a con
tract cannot bo extended unless action to
that end be taken before the date fixed
for tbo original Instrument to expire
The question was brought to the atten
tion of the Commissioners upon an appli
cation of the National Electrle Supply
Company The Auditor is of the opinion
that the time may be extended on the
contract owing to the fact tlirft the com
pany made appllcatljn for the same be
fore the limit of their contract though
form h I action was not taken until after
ward
The Auditor however suggests that In
tbo future the Commissioners take the
precaution to act on such mutters before
the time of the expiration of the con
tract so as to conform to the decision of
the Comptroller of the Treasury
