It Is astonishing how much generous and kind] feeling one sees on Broadway, Fifth aven-ue an other main thoroughfares, despite the learne disquisitions of. provincial philosophers about th selfishness and heartlessness of a great city. Yesterday afternoon on Fifth avenue an evl dently valuable dog of the Scotch-terrier bree was run over by a paslsng vehicle. He snuj gled under the show windows of one of the store In the Cambridge Hotel building. The oabme about the''Waldorf Hotel stroked his long, tawn hair and did everything to make the poor llttl animal comfortable. An abrasion of the ski under one of hia forelegs and a long, muddy black line showed where the wheel had passe over him. • One of the "cabbies" said he would put him In hls : coupe until 'ie got a Job. A crowd was attracted by the poor little animal's sufferings Finaly a sympathetic and sensible woman pal him a dollar and took the dog>ay. * * * The sidewalk in' front of a- large grocery hou: n Broadway was stnnwn with rice yesterda afternoon.

At a large;.representatlve gathering of delegates from, women's clubs of New York and Sherry's on April 23 to discuss practical methods of philanthropy, the Idea of a city federation of clubs was started, and a committee was appointed, which called a meeting of delegates of women's clubs at St. Stephen's Church yesterday. The call having been issued by the Phalo Club.', which Is purely a philanthropic organization, many of the ladles conceived tho nation that the federation was to for the 'Study of philanthropy. With this in mind Mrs. Chapman and Mrs. Croly'spoke hard against the idea at yesterday's meeting. Mrs. Croly suggested that a great charitable federation was a great responsibility to assume,: and she considered the meeting too small to act for the clubs. Mrs. Harden Hess said that the supposition that tho federation was to be philanthropic merely was entirely erroneous; all departments of women's work In clubs were to be represented. Mrs. Ravenhill was in doubt whether city federation would help anybody wnen the State federation was still In Its Infancy. Mrs. Alexander, from the 'chair, pointed out the immense power of a city federation, and declared that as they had come together it was their duty to do something dellnlte. A motion was finally framed that sat- sfied all parties. The old committee was named as the nucleus ofi a new committee, which was empowered to add to Its membership the presidents of all the Important women's clubs. These were Instructed to send -a circular explaining the desire for federation, and asking for delegates to a meeting at St. Stephen's Church on the first Wednesday in October. The committee, as It now stands, Is as follows: Mrs. Jasper Cairns, Mrs. B. N. Alexander, Mrs. B. A. Greeley, Mrs. Thompson, Miss Cecil Cowdrey, Mrs, B. B. Kenyon, Mrs. Hanaford Mrs. A. Wallensteln, Mrs. Groly, Mrs. Chapmaji, Mrs. Palmer, Mrs. Troutman, Mrs. Helmuth, Mrs. Fairman, Mrs. Keatlnge, Miss Lyclla Day. Byrnes—Stair e.

New Yori's Attorney-General Will Seek to Suppress the People's Lloyds Company. EMINENT COUNSEL ON EACH SIDE. Con-tended that AIa.ny Concern! Were Kept Alive l>r a Subterfuge to Evade the I/aw of 1892. Now that 'the Lloyds agitation is at it* height, Insurance people generally are awaiting with Interest the result of tha action Instituted by the State's Attorney-General against Edward V. Loew, Leo C. Dessar and others, underwriters of the People's Pire Lloyds. The case will come up In Supremo 'ourt, Chambers, Friday. Eugene L. Richards will 'represent the Attorney- General, and the counsel for the Lloyds companies are Joseph H. Choate, Gen.' B. P. Tracy and William B. Ellison. The contest promises to be fierce, arfd thousands upon thousands of insurers and insured will be affected toy the re-, suit. ' , The court is to determine whether Issuing two or three policies 'by'Lloyds) " corporations to keep them alive prior to' :he enactment of the law of 1892 can be legally construed as "being in business'*' within the definition of that statute. The Legislature passed In 1893 a law that was really a codlficatiojj of the insurance laws, with supplemental feat- v ures. It was popularly supposed that' the law was drawn at the instigation of he incorporated or old line companies.! It sought to prevent the doing of a flro' nsurance business by any individual unless he had a capital of $200,000, Invested in safe securities, and subjected himself and his financial resources' to an examination by the Superintendent if Insurance. There were a number of persons doing iuslness -under 'the system known as jloyds, which is, that Instead of a 'Olicy being signed by a corporation, ndividual Insurers sign It, and opposite heir names specify the proportion of he entire risk they assume. These un- lerwrlters bitterly opposed the measure, and their antagonism led to the addition f section 67, which provided that * the preceding sections should not made applicable to the Lloyds law-! - ully engaged In business prior to Oct. , 1892. It will be seen that the only question letween the State'and the Lloyds is as' o whether the latter were lawfully lolng business before Oct. 1, 1892. The Attorney-General asserts that In , ntlcipatlon of the going into effect of i he law of 1892, many persons formed 1 nemselves into Lloyds companies, ana i ' imply held .their organizations together 1 vltn various purposes In view. Many f these organizations, :t was declared, vere created solely for the purposes of ale, and are n\/w doing business. The Vttorney-General alleges that i)hes«. vere not lawfully doing, business Oct. 1. 8S2. and hence are rrjstralnable. ' The Lloyds system of Insurance has be-1 ome very popular. The Lloyds compa-' lesare not compelled to maintain expen- 1 ve establishments and the . high-pried ! Bclals of a corporation. It Is asserted , hat every one of the larger Lloyds com-i anles carries on the business at a. cost f not more Chan 25 per cent, of the remlums,, while with the old line com- . anles the expndlture has-been from' '.1 to 92.1. By the Lloyds system also the Ha- f llty under a policy is individual, and / he underwriter is not protected by: ie safeguards thrown around In-, orporation. Here are the names of some of ths len offlcdating as underwriters in' loyds companies: Levi P. Morton, I hauncey M. Depew, John fClafiin, F. ' . Tefft, John Jacob Astor, John Gibb, , loward Gould, George C. Clarke, Ed-1 in Gould, Hugh O'Neill, John B. Duke, ' rancis A. Palmer, Gen. Benjamin F. ' racy, Francis C. Travers, Warner Mll- r, James A. Roberts, W. E. D. Stokes, i Seaver Page, Charles J. Follmer! heodore K. Pembrook, John W. ConcUt nd Theodore Su'tro.
