University Will Make an Attempt to Cut Expenses This Year. THE DEBT'HAS BEEN REFUNDED Bond Issued Bearing Tfcxt and Thi mad a Half Per Cent. Interest - Trustee Confident of Tatar. " The subject of the finance of Columbia University has been one of especial public Intent since the university took up Its home at tbe new- site on Morning-side Heights, and besides the purchase of the valuable real estate It occupies there erected several BuUdinas so costly and handsome as to add a notable feature to the city's architecture. The question as to whether the step was a wise one is now being; broached In some quarters, and a fresh stimulus to the Inquiry la the report that lbs university is now blla-ed to reduce expenses and that some of its professors must suffer a serious cut. The -chief Item la the expenses which proves' a eame of worr? la the Interest on the . debt of the university, a debt now amounting- to about (3.730,000. The Interest n this has hitherto amounted to about 1X50,000 a year. It was learned yesterday that the Trustees had succeeded la mate rially reducing this yearly sum by adopting the plan which President Seth Low set forth In tlx annual report last year, namely, refunding the debt by an Issue of S per cent, and 3 per cent, university bonds.. These bonds President Low hoped might be taken up at 2 per cenU and while not quite that measure of success ias been attained, nearly cne-half of them bear 3 per cent. Interest, while the rest bear tta per cent. The bonds are amply secured by real estate owned by the university. - . While this has been a considerable help, however, the problem of making both ends meet" In the university's business management la still a knotty one. The fact that a ntimoer of prominent New Yorkers have pledged themselves to defray whatever yreny deficits there may be. both la payment of curent expenses and meet. the Interest on the debt for the next - years relieves the minds of the Trustees for that period. . In President Low's la yearly report tha university's financial status was clearly set forth. In the last six years, said. he. the income from fees had Increased at the rate of flH.Suu per annum, and with the advantage of a new site it waa natural to expect an 'increase of fJO.Ouu per annum in future, one-half of which would be needed for additional instructors for the new "tu-den's, and the other halt of which could be applied to payment of interest on the debt. The interest of the debt has now been decreased by about a year by the refunding scheme. President Low thought that In Ave years the university might be tie to overtake Its obligations. The payment of what deficits might appear 'from year to year was not provided lor In bis report, but the offer of the ctti-- sens aforesaid takes care of that problem for five years. The deficit for the year ending last June. In the current expenses account, eras about fX!.uuu, and it la feared that it will be as large this year. A prominent member of the Board of Trustees, who Is thoroughly in touch with . the finances of the university, spoke confidently or the outlook yesterday, although be admitted that there would be a certain attempt to rut expenses this college year. " We are simply trying to save a little where we can,'' said he. " getting down expenses as in all similar Institutions. Tha lesson Is that in some quarters the expenditures hare been extravagant."- " Will there be any cut in salaries? he was asked. There wttl be no general cut in aalarles at all. he replied. " and what cutting there may be in special Instancee will not be important. The Idea that the university Is on the verge of bankruptcy is all rot. Columbia, University owns 1.,i0.oij worth of property over and above Its debts. If you include the Momlngslde Heights property. We nave refunded our debt, the bonda being taken t.y banks and trust companies who do not do thoie things from philanthropy, and all we Ky Is a I and 3, per cent- Interest. I should ;e to know how many corporations do as well." What about meeting the current expenses deficit and Interest after the next five years are upT . well, we expect to have materially reduced the principal by then. We have certain real estate whlrt! we have been holding to sell simply for this purpose, when terms are -favorable. One such up-towa piece of property is worth I-Mi.ono. Then we will 7 1 property worth s.VJO.000 from the will of Charles Bathgate Beck, who died about three years ago. .and whose estate has Dot teen divided yet. " From the sale of the Forty-ninth -Street property, the site we left to go to our prvs- vT.rt W"0 ,0t . . cash. anf the -,0""h Street property, now occupied by the Berkeley School, and which we e applied directly to the principal of the debt, reducing It to about ia.-ttO.uio. and these other sums will reduce it .till more. Then ?IpTc,!aIf? h'P from Public gifts. .A , President Low's gift, we bavenot 5 K.ttf PP'y nr of it to the Interest of the Jebt vet. and I think It will simply be used 1r purpose for which It was intended--the library building." .

NEEDS OF THE BRONX-BOROUGH Voters FgTOT tha BUI Introduced at Albanyj ProTldlng for Another AsMtablymaji and Alderman, j The North Side fioard of Trade and the Taxpayers? Alliance Of the Borough of the Bronx have decided to indorse and fight for the passage of the .bill Introduced at Albany providing or an additional Assemblyman for the Twenty-first Senatorial District and a second Alderman for the Thirty-fourth Assembly pistrlct. Last year a similar bill was introduced by Assemblyman Rellng-ton, but It. was snetved, . - I - Ever .since the Thirty-fourth Assembly District was divided there has been a. great deal of dissatisfaction on both shies of tho Harlem River, and many petty squabbles arose that: would otherwise have been averted. The toters on the south side of ihe river feel that they have very little in common with those on the north aide, and vl?e versa. A leader waa appointed for each aide of the river.' with the hope that It would smooth matters over., but It baa not j had the desired effect, and there la a universal demand for additional representation. ' Another (argument which will be used In favor of the measure Is that tha Twaniv. first Senatorial District is the only Senatorial die tr let In New York State that is made up sof but two Assembly districts, namely, the Thirty-fourth and Thirty-fifth, one-half of the latter being south of the Harlem River. This, the voters of the district argue, should never have been kino tioned. and they say that as well might a portion of Staten Island be Included in the Battery Lastrict as a slice of the Bronx be bound up with Manhattan. .,Altf" jE-lvl, Vice President of the 2.fth.?,1J.BorAof Tr,d' n u Interested in the bill, said yesterday: It haa never been quite plain to me why the Borough of the Bronx, as we now designate It. should have been, deprived nf halt a representative In the Assembly after It had doubled Its population. When -the city waa divided into thirty Assembly districts we were ap-pot"tl2.1Td-.two or them, the- Twenty-ninth nd Thirtieth. When the number was increased to thlrtyJour, we, with double our former population, were apportioned one and one-half, one Aaemblyman being made i?J,i??dl ,thT.'n, The b1Ulant Individual or Individuals responsible for this absurdity Jia re never Vouchsafed any reason for It to the general public i . -The Greater New fork Commission, with equal wisdom, blindly followed th.a ap-portionment in providing for Aldermen, with the addition of on member from the portions of the First and Second Westchester Districts Included In the Borough of the Bronx. Based on population alone, we ought, in common fairness, to have at least four Assemblymen and four Aldermen.; But there are other reasons, aaide from population, why we ought to have a larger representation " trntJH1 "JT. In area and as rapid I"T?T" v the borough of the Bronx certainly has rao-e pressing needs and re- r,0r,loofcln tr than a district which la fully developed. And the representative of other boroughs caanot be ex-pecaed to understand our local needs and advocate them. How can a man whonc dis-trtctJ" Pn7 I" Manhattan and partly In the Bronx represent our interests as well aa one who reDreaenta the Bronx and the J1""" alone? Nature has placed -her own dividing Urn, and we cannot improve on h. Our loral Interests are not Idrntical with those of Hariera any more than they are with any other section of the city. The vary sub-division of the city into districts la tn Itself a recognition of the principle that there are local interests to be conserved. If this were not so. -why not require some of the down-town Aldermen to represent Jointly New Tork and Brooklyn? " What the Borough of the Bronx needs Is a large represenuulon, both a- the OUy Hall and. In Albany, of men whose homes are among us. wbw understand our needs and are thoroughly in touch with our people, aad who will fight for our Interests on every occasion. And as the charter provides for one Alderman from each Assembly district as now constituted, 'or as such Assembly districts, may hereafter be changed by law. the sooner such a chance la made I tbe aooner will w recelva the recognition which our area, population, and Import anca demands."

Magistrate Olmsted, After an Exhaua-Uv Inquiry, Decideg jthe Case Is One tor Civil (pourta. Magistrate Olmstad, In ttU Essex Market Police Court, yesterday, was called upon to decide a very knotty Question. It arose over a dispute which led to a Quarrel over the merlta, from an artistic stjuidpoint, of two crayon pictures. The contending forces were a policeman, an artist, and two customers of the Utter. The artist and the customers were arraigned after tbe fashion of ordinary prisoners, and j the policeman simply testified to the disaster wrought as a result of the encounter between the artist and his .atrons in the shop of the former, at 157 Delancey Street. j ; The artist gave -the name of J. Frelfold. and the patrons of tho j latter described themselves as Mrs. Rachael Phillips of 82 Ridge "Street and' her jbrother, Samuel Gang. Gans is a man past middle Mfe, bald headed, and with a. flowing white beard. Mrs. Phillips is a woman of forty, and weighs about 200 pounds. It appeared from the evidence that Mrs. Phillips and her brother some two months ago entered Into a contract, with Frelfeld to reproduce their pictures in' crayon, giving him two cabinets as patterns on which to base hla works of art. I :Lat Saturday afternoon Mrs.' Phil Hps nd her brother called on Artist Frelfeld n his studio for their crayons. They were surprised to iTY"' "ndlng that the crayons were not faithful f ao similes of the original cabinets, that the artist wanted an additional Price for the gilt frames In which the cray- 'V fr "a-" followed. In which the palntlnga were wrecked and the frames dentroyed. j . - Frelfeld found time during the argument ;? uJnmo" "..Pollcemanj .and demanded LnS ME?L PfcMps and her; brother, whom he described as bulls In a hlna shop." bo placed under arrest- on a rsharge of deetroy-tXtuZ wo,n of his works of art. Mra. Phillips and her brother made a countercharge against the artlst.i and. all three were placed under arrest. In court the caMnets were banded up to Magistrate Olmsted, and Dans Insisted on saying that the crayon did not do him Justice, Inasmuch as It made It appear as though fistfuls of his patrlarchlaT beard had been torn from his face. In order to look neat, he explained, when he sat for the cabinet he wore a nightcap to hide his baldness. He did not propose, he said, to be taxed for a crayon and a costly frame when the artist failed to do him justice facially. Mrs. Phillips complained that the crayon supposed to represent her was sallow faced. wh?reae she had rosy cheeks. Magistrate Olmsted, after an exhaustive Inquiry into the merits of 'the case, decided that It was one for adjudication In a civil court. He discharged all three prisoners. Inaamucn aa th complaining policeman did not witnesa the alleged malicious destruction of the studio. i i i ' '. . SOCIAL SIDE OF TBS SAXOOK. Mr. Moore Rays It Is j lalversally Henry Jloyt " Moore.

He declared that, aside from all ethical questions.' tbe liquor saloon meets an indubitable want; and. rightly or wrongly, he said. It Is a universally popular institution. ' -1 .- . The saloon.- said Mr.j Moore. "Is a social Institution: men do not go to It to get 4- t tbe average man drops In to see the boys. to hear the latest political gossip, to chat : with the proprietor, to play a game of billiards or cards, or to read the papers.- The lecturer expressed the belief that eventually we snail come to' some modification of the public dispensary system, as uniting freedom to the strong to use alcoholic beveraaes with the removal of temptation from tne weak. " 1 believe." said Mr. Moore. - that aa a necessary supplement to the dispensary the State or municipality should provide a people a palace In every dtr ward, with bowling aileya, cheerful lodge rooms, a hall for puoue meetings, a good. heap restaurant: a bar where soft drinks should be sold, perhaps an art gallery, a reading room, and other attraettve features which would entertain without demoralising patrons.- Kgsatsv. af ' Great Annual Sale of Women's Swiss and Domestic Underwear !

Hrslop of Columbia TJnlversltr lectured to tha Class on Present Day Problems at tha Broadway Tabernacle yesterday afternoon on "The Place of Government In Social Reform." Tbe Question whether It haa any place at all. said Prof. Hrslop, "depend on the kind of government. It depends as much also on what Is meant by social reform,'" whether It la moral or economic, or both. In all cases tha two reforms to be effected are of tha Individual, or cttlaen. and tbe government. In a pure democracy these two are the same, but In our form of aovernment one exercises power over tbe other.' " The only question, then," the lecturer continued. Is, whether the agent who exercises government, Is fit for . his duties? If he Is you can Increase his powers; If not, you must decrease them. All social problems, therefore, are subordinated to the question of the kind of government, in our country the fundamental defect Is that the Executive Is not responsible. Until this official Is made responsible the Govern ment can do little else than protect the citisea In the exercise of prudence; that Is. In the rlshta of property. It caanot be safely trusted without responsibility to altauiDt to reailaa the BoclaUsUo liai.'f . vw' A tO);o : IOC each 25c each 39C each 50C each 69C each 98C eh 1.98h BE I PROMPTLY EXECUTED. this morning; in and Furnishings in Avenue, 20th to 21st AMUSEMENTS.
