Martin Kane, who has acted is First Vice President ot the association for a. number of years, wss elected President, subject to final election at the January, meetlnsr of the .association. The resignation of Mr. Und-Jng-er followed his election to the Presiden cy ot tne fetaie Association last oepinau'i. -- The meeting formulated plans for extending the scope of the liberty Association which has for its purpose the organization of bakers, butchers, pretsel makers, and all manufacturers of liquor dealers' sup- piles into a xsauonai association, ii wss announced that organisations would be formed In every city in the United States, which would follow in the footsteps of the IJquor Dealers' Association. At the meeting yesterday the association - passed a resolution Blmllar to that adopted by the recent National convention, approv ing a plan to place on all packages of liquors or beer stamps or laltels from a , penny to 6 cents for the purpose of ralstng a defense fund to be used. In promoting legislation in - the Interests ot the liquor dealers. The resolution, which' was in the form of a letter addressed to liquor dealers throughout the country, was presented by P. II. Nolan, chief organizer, and 'was In part as follows: "Of late years those opposed to the trade have turned their attention more generally to Congress, hoping1 through that body tos make their efforts and influence more effectual -against the trade generally. The passage by Congress of the law abolishing ' a also the act of the last Congress forbid ding the sale of liquor in any part 01 tne Capitol Building at Washington. ,' ' " They are now striving to secure the passage of hills prohibiting such traffic in ' or adjacent to any building or property belonging to the Government, wherever situ-' ated, and others of like character. To de- . feat all such measures. If possible,- Is a part of the onerous work devolving upon . this. National association. ... ! " Then there are measures of relief from existing oppressive laws which the entire trad urgently demands, and for the pas-' sage of which this association is expected to spare no time, energy, or legitimate and ' honorable Influence; as, for instance, we are demanding a reduction ot the tax on , distilled spirits from $l.lo a gallon to the more reasonable rate or o cents. " After nearly a dozen years of steady . work in the interest or tne trade tne asso- elation has established itself not only in the confidence of all dealers, but luu won the universal recognition and respect of ail xair-minded people, and is now in a posi tion to extend its influence and help and to aid the Slate associations in their continu ous and arduous work. " All this, it is manifest, will call for - more revenue than the association - has hitherto been able to command. . To meet this euiergency the National Convention, - vhlch met at Ptttabura:. Penn.. on Oct. 13- "15, amended the by-laws by providing thHt a cupyngnira uiiwi ue piaceu upon uu yaLfc-rg?H of wines or liquors sold to the retail ! trade. These labels are to be supplied by the troir and designated officers of the association at such low prices that their I Lse can In no manner increase the churee to riprilprii . f rr thptr prvwta ThA rnnt will - be but one cent on a case (one dozen quart i bcttlesi of domestic wines or liauors: two ' 1 1 bU a case on imported goods; five cents on a barrel, and three cents on a half uar- i i el or other package of euy liquor, whether imported or domestic. "It will be observed that the required labels are to be placed upon the packatfs before they are sold to retailers. Their cost will, therefore, devolve vpon those from whom the retailer ourchases and It is I honed that all retailers who are lovnl In . their trade and in sympathy with toe work of the National association 'will brvl their ) aid and assist in securing the reforms so persistently demanded, by simply refraining from - purchasing goods not suitably stamped or labeled according to the schea ft is believed that the amount to be raised by this means will reach SlttXl.iXXl a year. noinPF CTrn pniiTDrT i ft DniUUL O I CE.U WUI1 I flfiw i Lr.u Lindenthal, on Advice of Corporation Counsel, Place Order for Black-well's Island Structure.

Bridge. Commissioner Lindenthal yes terday awarded the contract to the Penn sylvania Steel Company for t5.132.9W. It Is one of the largest individual steel contracts ever let by the city.' Justice Clarke In the Supreme Court later .. heard, arguments of counsel on an application of Daniel & Banco rn, a taxpayer of Flufhins, for an Injunction restraining the Commissioner from awarding this contract. Mr. Sanhorn's action was based on the claim that the revised Lindenthal plans are tiot legal, and that only the original plui. prepared In 40 and approved by the Van "V'yck Bridge Commission and the Board of Public improvements, are legal. . Justice Clarke said that he thought the fact that the contract had been awarded lefore the motion for an injunction was made put the plaintiff out of court, but requested both fides to submit briefs on. the - points of law Involved. ; During the argument, whear H.'

He in rich, the administrator of the estate, claimed the money belonged to the estate, and Miss .Von . Pdiucltrr.ann brought the action to recover.

Terkes. the promoter of rapid transit In several of the great cities, arrived hers yesterday on the steamship Kaiser Wllhelm II. on his annual visit to this country. He said that he was spending all his time in building the London un derground road, and that'be had little time to give to the affairs of Chicago. Mr. Terkes was asked If he contemplated constructing any mor roads than those In winch be is now Interested. . . No," ; he replied. " we have enough money and are satlsf'ed to carry put what we have started. The work In London U well under .way, and about one-half of it, the part from Baker Street lo Waterloo, will be f inched In about one Tb.3 rest wlirbe completed within five years." . Have you made any changes In your system s!nce the Paris disaster?" he was arked. " We have none to make," was the ans wer. " The Parisians have been to us since that accident, and have taken a, few points from. us. - Everything in our system is non-inflammable, and there Is not the slightest chance for such an accident occurring In our system as occurred In Paris." . 1 It has been reported that you were bar ing a hard, time in making the Common Council understand the strength of the ma terials used In your subway, and that they were' pressing you all the time In making you live up to the letter of the' law, for Instance as regards thickness of walls," he was told. - . r , " The Common Council knows absolutely nothing about such matters," he said, " the whole thing is left to the engineers of the Government. Bo far we have agreed in all respects. I like to work with the English engineer. ' He is not self opinionated, and you can tell him something about his own business, and he will thank you. American engineers make believe that they know It an. out one linos out tbat tney know nothing before they begin. . "I see." he went on. "that Tammanv la back In power, or soon will be.

I don t see why I should care to have them in anv . loneer niter that. They have cleaned up the Tenderloin. I suppose, and they have closed some of the gambling houses, but as I have said, they raised tne taxes on my house, which Is of much more interest to roe. I don't go to the Tenderloin or to the gambling houses, so why should I pay to make others keep away from there ' The reformers may mean well, but force never reformed anybody.' - COL ASTOR SELLS PROPERTY. Disposes of Some More of His Lower East Side Tenement Holdings for About $250,000. Col. John Jacob Astor. m accordance with a policy inaugurated several years ago. nas old some more of his lower east side ten ement holdings, the properties Involved In the present transaction -being twelve in number and coverThg the block front on the west side of Avenue A, between Four- t teenth and Fifteenth Streets, 200.0 by W. and the northwest corner of 'Avenue A and Fifteenth Street. 103.3 by 94. . These properties have been acquired "by the Central Realty, Bond and Tust Company, and a resale of them to an Investor, who will hold them permanently, will probably be. arranged within the next few days. No price has been made public In connec-1 tion with Ihe deal, but It la understood that the figure was in the neighborhood of $250,000. The brokers In the transaction were Douglas Robinson, Charles S. Brown & Co. ' . 1 Although this Is tho third sale of Astor property In that immediate neighborhood within the last few years; It differs from Its predecessors In that ,the ground leases on the several tots involved have abeut sixteen years yet ,to run. In the previous sales CoL Astor ha taken a group of properties on which the ground leases were about to expire and given the lessees, who erected and owned the buildings, an opportunity to buy the lota. -The same opportunity. It should be stated, was afforded the ground lessees in this Instance, but since lew of them signified their willingness to avail themselves of It and slrce CoL Astor did not think it well to break up the block fronts, keeping some lots and selling others, he was obliged to seek a buyer who would take all. The fact that the Central Realty. Bond and Trust Company appears again as n buyer of real estate was the subject of some comment yesterday, it being the general belief that some sort of an understanding has existed since the organisation .of the United-' Slates Realty and Construction Company to the endy that the Ontrnl Realty, Bond arid Trusr Company woold abandon real estate operations. In speaking of this phase of the transaction President Morgenthau of the latter corporation said: . " I do not know that this deal can be said to mark our re-entry into the real estate field. r We are handling this ptvi-erty Blmplyhs we would any other' llrst-clatts investment a bond issue, for instance for which there ceemed to be h ready market." LOSE CELLAR EXCAVATION SUIT ' Motion to enjoin having been denied by Justice Clarke, In the Supreme Court yesterday, "R. M. Haan may proceed with work on the cellar at 10 East Fifty-fifth Street, where he says he Intends to erect a five-story dwelling for his own occupancy. This lot, which is part of a larger plot. formerly the site of Joseph Pulitzer's resi dence, adjoins the .new Hotel St. Regis, which Col. John Jacob Astor is building for Mr. Haan as lessee. When Mr. Pulit zers plot came into the market several neighboring owners, among wnom were John It, urexel. JUr. Kooert r . Weir, and John J. Redmond, fearine some obiertinn. able improvement, bought the property, restricted it to private dwellings for a period of twenty-ilve years, and resold It to a firm of builders. The builders put up a handsome dwelling on part of the plot and resold the westerly lwif of it,-, next to the St. Regis, to Mr. Haan. Everything was peaceful until Mr. Haan began to dig and blast for the cellar of his proposed noue. a me excavation went down and down, the .neighboring- owners urew more and more atiDrehensive. until filially, when a depth of thlrty-nlne feet had been attained, they applied to the court, on the ground that circumstances seemed to Indicate that it was the ultimate intention of Col. Astor and Mr. Haan to build an addition to the BU Reds on the lot. Justice Clarke said that the contention of the piamtuis was. it not torcerui, at least original. " I fbid no restriction In the covenant." he said. " In common law. In equity, or in good morals as to the depth of the cellar for the one-family private house. ' The owner may go down five or fifty feet, provided that during the time 8ecified in the restriction he erects and maintains only a dwelling house tor one family. I deny the application." i The cellar objected to. according to the plans of the nix hi Wet. is to have a. base ment, mezzanine noor, ana a BUD-oasemeat.

Frederick Hall White, were revived In the Supreme Court, Brooklyn, yesterday, when the son obtained from Justice Wilmot M. SmlUj an order permit ting him to go to Germany .to study foreign languages instead of to Harvard, as desired by his father. Young White inherited a large fortune from his mother, Eliza Trow bridge White.. . , . The young man said that he wished to re side abroad for the present because ot the " ir.iudicicim Interference " of his father. who ' persisted in arbitrarily lsvinr out a course of study" for him.

Another interesting feature of the exhibi tion is a collection! of twentv-llve varieties of chrysanthemum which arrived for this occasion upon thj Carauanla last Satur day from England and have been in cold storage since.

The Kntlish cultivation of the flower is quite dillerent from that on this ewe of tne water.

Park Commissioner Wlllcox said yesterday that he would go before the Board of Estimate and Apportionment on Friday and seek an appropriation of Sl.000.000 for tlio establishment of a great park on the southern end of Staten Island, teaching from the hills to tbe shore and comprising ome 4.0UO acre, or four times the size of Central Park. '. The Commissioner says that this part has long been in prospect, but that now the property can be secured for the comparatively small sum ot $1,500,000. and 'should be takea up at once by the city, then Ini-ljoved tor park purposes as rapidly as pos- " Owing- to the r pld cretin of tho city M said the Commissioner, "there will be a woeful lack of room In a short time, and park land will be at n. premium, wrh. carcly anv place for the playing f has-nall. football, and othr games. liecause of this. I wish the Board of Krtlmate and Ap-Mnlon?nent to authorise the. purchase of this land at once." LEGAL NOTES. Right to Coxpki. a Reply to Answer. Among tbe defenses to an action to recover the possession of real property, brought In the Supreme , Court by Joseph Trimble against one Russell. Were fhe following: That the plaintiff has not legal capacity to sue for the reason that he Is a minor- and. further, that before the commencement of this action the plaintiff became seized of the equity of redemption in the premises. Vsubject to a certain raortzara which was foreclosed; that Joseph Trimble (the name of the plaintiff herein) Was a defendant in the foreclosore. and thnt th defendants fn this action purchase! the property at tbe foreclosure sale." a motion to compel the .plaintiff to reply to these answers has been granted by Justice Clarke, fcuch a motion, he said. Is ad- dressed to the discretion of the court, and should be allowed to prevent surprise and promote tbe Interests of Justice, Continuing. Justice Clarke said in part: la Watson rs. Phyf e. 20 W. D.. 87:1.) the action was to recover possession of real property. The answer set forth that the deceased owner, ftom whom plaintiff, as beir claimed to have derived title, had executed a will by which he disposed of the property in controversy in. such a way as to deprive the plaintiff of any title to it. The .ivnu in- jjruper one in Wniel to direct a. reply, stating; 'That the Intel mcui iruu di in wuun required that the i 7 . 7 'niormra wnetner the I'iwiiiihi ucuku rxtruuoii of the WU r,,u w mi T.UUHT oi me proceed lngs by which nrobate of 'hrm u , el. or expected to avoid thrlr effect in some other manner.
