R. Marshall Harrison, formerly pastor of the Bedford Heights Baptist Church, at the Church of Our Father, Grand avenue and Lefferts place, last evening. The lecturer has been heard all over the country, and probably nowhere has Dr. Harrison been more warmly received and appreciated than he was at the Church of Our Father. Dr.

Harrison has several lectures, but the one of last night, "Talking and Talkers," has always created much interest. It is full of humor and pathos and was delivered with force and with much dramatic power. A LANTERN SLIDE NIGHT. The members of the Brooklyn Academy of Photography entertained their friends last evening with an exhibition of lantern slides In the rooms of the society, in the Brooklyn Trust Company Building. President Fullerton welcomed the guests.

Mr. Frank La Manna filled the rolo of lecturer Mr. W. T. Wintringham operated che double lantern.

The slides shown were mostly the work of the members during the past year, a considerable number being contributed by the Whirling Dervishes, the well known bicycle club made up of the members of the B. A. P. Needless to remark, their pictures were an emphatic argument in favor of the work of the Good Roads Association. There were a number of marine views presented, which displayed superb cloud effects: Indeed, as a whole, the slides shown were fully up to the high standard of technical work and artistic excellence for which the members of this society of amateurs are So justly famous.

The popular interest in the Cuban question was emphasized by the exhibition a number of pictures of battleships and ode of the striking exhibits in chis class was a slide ebowing the wreck of the Maine, in Havana Harbor, reproduced from a fine paccograph sent to one of the members of the society. Mr. La Manna's descriptions were, as usual, full of crisp characterization and brigat coiloquy. Throughout it was an interescing and admirable collection of slides both for artistic excellence and attractiveness of subjects. Landscapes and genre pictures were numerous.

Within a few weeks the society will give Its annual spring print exhibition. CARL FIQUE'S CONCERT. Interesting Piano and Vocal Music at Wissner Hall. The fifth in the series of invitation concerts by Mr. Carl Fique and his pupils attracted the usual large audience of music lovers to Wissner Hall last evening.

Mozart sonata, to which Mr. Fique bad composed a second piano part, containing alre from Mozart's operas, contrapuntally combined with the themes of the sonata, was played on two pianos by Miss Elcanor Treadwell and Mr. Fique and proved of especial interest to students of harmony. Miss Grace Maske performed Leybach's "Valse Brilliante," Miss Louisa Linn played the nocturne and wedding march Mendelssohn's "Midsummernignt's Dream." Miss Elsie Stafford Eastman played Flque's "Rheingold Idyl" and Scharwenka's "Polish Dance" and Miss Liebmann the A. flat polonaise by Chopin, Mrs, Katharine who had hitherto assisted in these concerts as pianist, appeared as vocal soloist, disclosing a soprano voice of good quality and unusual compass as well AS an excellent method of tone production.

Her selections embraced the aria from Weber's "Freischutz," three songs by "Rosemonde" and "Sum. mer'-and a novelty, "Hungarian by Flque. The sixth and last concert takes place April 18.

A Picturesque Character in Local Affairs Passes Suddenly Away.

MEMORIES OF AN ACTIVE LIFE. Prominent in Social, Religious and Commercial Circles His Life Was One of Continuous -His Final Effort Was the Successful Settlement of an Indebtedness of Over a Million Dol- Franklin Woodruff died at his home, 106 Remsen street, last evening. His death was caused by apoplexy. It was a great surprise to all his friends, the fact of his illness not having been known outside of his family. He was one of the most picturesque persons in local politics and was widely known as an active, successful business man.

He was born in Farrington, in 1832. In 1850, when be was 1S years of age, he took up his residence in New York City. He became a clerk in the warehouse of Woodruff Robinson. This Woodruff was not related to him. For three years he served firm with great ability, evincing remarkable foresight and business judgment.

At the end of three years the Arm was reorganized, Albert Woodruff, the senior partner, retired, and Franklin Woodruff was taken into the Arm. then moved to Brooktie lyn. It was about this time that the intultive wisdom of the late William Beard's father led him to realize the great value of the Brooklyn water front, and led to the establishment of the Atlantic Docks and the Erie Basin, in which enterprise Mr. J. S.

T. Stranaban became interested and was a leading worker. Mr. Robinson had also realized the value of the water front for business and warehouse purposes a and in the work of developing this Franklin Woodruff was invaluable. During the first years of his residence in Brooklyn he devoted his energies to establishing a position in mercantile regions and social circles.

FRANKLIN WOODRUFF, One of Brooklyn's Most Prominent Business Men FRANKLIN WOODRUFF, and Politician, Who Dled Last Night. In all of his endeavors he was more than successful. He rapidly acquired wealth and social standing and was a leading light in the Church of the Pilgrims. His social standing increased through his second marriage to the widow of Henry Hunt who was connected with the Van Sinderen family, one of the oldest and most respected families on the western end of Long Island. Soon after establishing himself in Brooklyn he entered the social, finally the political circle dominated by Samuel McLean and George Nichols.

This was a powerful political combination that wielded great influence in local politics. He was present at many of the exciting meetings that were held at McLean's house on the Heights, where many a successful political scheme hatched. But it was not until the celebrated contest which led to the election of Chittenden that Woodruff came to the front as the active political worker. He was chairman of the convention held in Sawyer's Hall on Fulton street, near Smith. Sawyer, by the way, was one of Brooklyn's old time characters, having made a wide reputation as a composer of songs.

This convention was historic. It brought Al I Daggett manipulator. to the front Chittenden as a lived skilful in the political First District and McLean, Woodruff and Fitzgerald, who were the triumvirate, determined to run Chittenden in the Republican district made up of the Seventh, Nineteenth, Twentieth and Twenty-first wards. Al Dagger, just entering his prime in politics, joined in. There were two places to be filled, a long term and a short term, to fill a vacancy left by the death of Congressman Humphrey, Peter W.

Ostrande: and Fred Cocheu entered the contest and Chittenden was defeated in the ventiou after an exceedingly bot contest. Ani other convention was immediately held, Chittenden was nominated and. with a Democratic indorsement, elocted. This contest caused the first real division in the Republican ranks, that has lasted in various forms even since. Mr.

Woodruff's politiral activities continued to attract public attention until 1870, when the organization was plunged into scandals due to the too free use of money to secure results. Indictments followed that for a time kept mauy active politicians out of sight, although no one was prosecuted. When the Tilton-Beecher case disturbed Brooklyn church circles, Mr. Woodruff, with his usual impetuousity, took sides in opposition to Mr. Beecher.

This for a tine lod to his 108s of social prestige and killed him politically for many years. In 1879 he became a candidate on the Republican ticket for mayor. His nomination was bitterly contested, but with the aid of McLean, Nichols and Daggett he defeated William H. Lyons, since for some years du Indian commissloner, at the convention held in the old Post Office Building on Washington street. The vote was 63 to 64.

The opposition was carried on all through the canpaign and James Howell, the Democratic nominee won by a tremendous vote---Mr. Woodruff winning the prestige of having been the worst beaten man who had ever run upon a Republican ticket. He wasn't heard of to any extent in politics thereafter until the Arst Harrison campaign, when he carne out actively for Harrison and by his personal efforts raised over $10,000 for the campaign fund. In the meantime be bad severed his relations with Robinson and had entered into partnership with Samuel McLean. This was an unfortunate venture, as he could not get along with McLean in business.

The partnership was soon dissolved. Then Mr. Woodruff entered the warehouse trust and was an active defender of trusts before the Senate conmittee which came from Albany to investigate the sugar and other trusts. This venture also falled and Mr. Woodruff was compelled to resume business on a private basis, which at the time was not remunerative.

The election of Harrison and his active work on the campaign committee gave Mr. Woodruff considerable prominence and he was unanimously elocted chairman of the Republican General Committee. Hardly had he entered upon the duties of the office before he got Into trouble through his unwise mixing up in the faction fight that was on between the Platt and antiPlatt forces. He tried to barmonize, but the breach was only widened. The next near, 1890, ho was a candidate for re-election.

The Nathan people entered David A. Baldwin as a competitor. Daggett, who bad forsaken Woodruff, came on from Washington to help Baldwin. The fight was hot. Each side claimed the victory and there was talk of money being freely used.

Finally evidence was secured showing that delegates in the Sixteenth Ward had been bought. The two men who had received money from the Baldwin adherents were induced to visit Mr. Woodruff big house, large promises of wealth having been held out to secure possession of notes and checks held by them. The two men came to Woodruff's house. He asked them for the notes and checks.

They banded them to him. He stuffed them in his pocket and put them out. Consternation was You get more for your money in buying Cleveland's Baking Powder than any other, because it goes farther. thrown into the camp of the opponents. There were Interviews, and a compromise was entered into, whereby Woodruff wAS elected upon returning the notes and checks.

Before they were returned they were photographed, and in the disclosure of the scandal which followed the photographs were used in evidence. Hardly had the echoes of this fight died away when the political and business world was startled by hearing that Mr. Woodruff had failed and his liabilities were over $1,000,000. On February 11, 1.890, he made an assignment to Edward H. Hobbs for the benefit of his creditors.

Much property that was in his wife's name was turned into the general fund. Lawyer Gifford was appointed attorney to look after the Interests of Mr. Woodruff. The failure was caused by the inability of Woodruff to collect $150,000 due him for salt and fish exported to Hayti. The war which was then being waged in Hayti bad ruined everyone and prevented the collection of the debts.

After the estate had been looked over, the assignee found that Mr. Woodruff owed about $700,000 and was carrying mortgages to the extent of 000, making his tatal indebtedness $1,200,000. A proposition was made to the creditors that they take the property of Mr. Woodruff for a corporation, accept 20 cents the doljar in cash and bonds for 80 per cent. of the indebtedness, bearing per cent.

interest. This wag acceded to. A Board of Directors, consisting of seven members, was created, three of whom were appointed by Mr. Woodruff. He named himself as one of the directors and resumed business.

He devoted all his time to it and prospered. He finally sold the property, which a consisted mainly of the warehouse property, to the Brooklyn Wharf and Warehouse Company for over $1,000,000. He settled with his creditors, 100 cents on the dollar, together with interest, about two years ago, and had a comfortable competency left. This was a remarkable feat for man of his years and re-established his name the business world. He took some interest in politics again, running for Senator against Frank Gallagher, two years ago.

He Was naturally defeated in a Democratic district, as all his friends had prophesied. He was much disappointed over the result. Mr. Woodruff was connected with the Brooklyn Library Association, having been its president for five years, and belonged to the Union League and the Brooklyn Republican Clubs, which he organized. To his friends, he was a very kindly person and much beloved.

His disposition was erratic in politics, savoring of the bull in the china shop character, which always kept his political associates uneasy. The Republican organization will take action at an early date looking toward a proper observance of the sad event. Mr. Woodruff leaves a widow, son and a daughter to mourn his death. A DINNER TO JUSTICES.

Occupants of the Supreme Court Bench to Be Guests of the Brooklyn Club. On Wednesday. March 23, the Brooklyn Club wiil give a complimentary dinner to the justices of the Supreme Court of this district, which will eclipse any banquet ever arranged by this well known organization. The president of the club, William Hester, is now absent in Florida, and will be unable to be present at the dinner, but his place as presiding officer will he filled by the District Attorney of Kings County, Josiah T. Marean.

Ag soon as the date of the dinner had been decided upon Mr. Marean was invited to fill the post of honor and at once his acceptance. The dinner will be a subscription one and already over 100 names have been received. It is expected that nearly all of the leading members of the bar will be present. Ex-Judge Howland, the well known after dinper speaker, will be the principal speaker of the evening.

The other speakers will include Judge Hirsbberg of the Supreme Court and General Tracy. An interesting feature connected with the dinner fact that the Suprene Court judges are members of the club and dine there every day. The reception committee, which has charge of the dinner, is composed of Frederic A. Ward, chairman; Edward M. Grout and William N.

Dykman. The house committee is composed of Messrs. George W. Chauncey, chairman; Dr. James Race and J.

A. McKay. The dinner will begin at 7:30 o'clock, being preceded by a reception which will last for half an bour. BRIEF COUNCIL SESSION. Leich and Francisco Provoked the Only Breeze at the Meeting -Aldermen in a Tangle.

Yesterday's council session was the shortest. yet held by the upper branch of the Munleipal Assembly and was, moreover, devoid of any business of great importance. The Mayor sent in a veto withholding approval of a resolution appropriating $3,600 extra for misceljaneous expenditures in one of the departmenis, on the ground that all must keep within the amounts allowed by the Board of Estimate. The veto message Was as follows: New York, March 13. 169S.

To the Honorable the Couneil: return herewith without my approval a resolution adopt by voll on February 23 Tequesting the Board Estimate and Apportionment to appropriate ine gurn $3.600) an a tingent fund for the use of the Department of Correction for the purchase or postage stumps, for car fures. and other sundry disbursements. My objection to this resolution is that the Board of Estimate andApporilonment has already made an appropriation within which the expenS6 of the Department of Correction during the year 1898 must be brought. (Signed) ROBERT A. VAN WYCK, Mayor.

The council voted to extend the courtestes of the floor on Tuesday next to Green, father of consolidation. Mr. Green is expected to make a speech. Councilman Leich and Councilman Francisco provoked about the only breeze in the unusually quiet proceedings by protesting against the favorable report of a bill uuthorzing the expendicure of $36,000 for a beating and lighting plant in the new East Twentyfourth street recreation pier. They were opProsed, while they said, Brooklyn to was spending being any lot: money In dark- that ness.

This was a reference to the scaling by the Board of Estimate of the estimate for the Department of Public Buildings, Lighting and 'Supplies in Brooklyn. Only Mesars, Leich, Francisco and Williams of Brooklyn opposed on the vote. The council heard a complaint from the Public Hack Owners' Union about the undue privileges allowed the club and restaurant backmen, which they ask be disallowed in future. The union wants a superintendent of hacks created to deal with them and Insure them their rights, also an ordinance regulating the back business at iticaters and lic The places. charter day appropriation waR no: mentioned and this probably accounted largely for tue lack of interest and short life of session.

It will come up next Tuesduy for report and passage. It will probably be favorably reporced in the council, as was in che Board ol Aldermen, and 13 eXpected 20 get the necessary votes in the council to pass. The council, after being in session fortyfive minutes. adjourned until nex: woek. Ic meets at 2 o'clock under the new rules, instead of at 1 o'clock, as formerly.

Aldermen in a Tangle. A resolution requesting the appointment of Thomas F. Kennedy of Brooklyn, as index clerk of the Board of Aldermen, James De leon of Manhattan as assistant clerk and WillJam F. O'Connor of Brooklyn as messenger, caused 8 tangle among tho Aldermen yesterday afternoon, The original resolution Instructed the CIty Clerk to make the appointments. Objection was made to this upon the ground that the Board of Aldermen had right to dictate as to the appointment of ofAcers.

Others claimed that the board bad the power to naine these officers direct. Ag a compromise it was agreed to simply request the clerk to make the appointments. It was also suggested by the board that Willjam B. Eillott, should be assistant sergeant. at-arms and Peter F.

Birch doorkeeper. Resolutions were read protesting agalnet the destruction of the Palisades, and calling upon the Legislature to make it a misdemeanor for any stone blasted there to be used on public works. These were referred to the law committee. do LA LA BROOKLYN SOCIETY. de LA LA LA LA de La The Asacog Club at last has its programme for Easter Monday on the miniature stage of the Germania Club arranged and fairly under way.

Two bright, crisp farces, quite new to Brooklyn audiences, one of them an unpublished one act play by Miss Trumbull of Hartford, were picked out by the entertainment committee on Monday, and will be put in rehearsal at once. These will call, in the main, for feminine dramatic talent, only two or three men being required for both the casts. The selection of just this sort of parlor play is wise, for the Asacog has at its commany clever girls who can acquit themselves toes most excellently On the mimic boards. Drama will, however, be but a single feau ture of the entertainment. The local theatric talent will be supplemented by the appearance of a musical celebrity of considerable Importance.

This is Miss Laura Sandthe young girl pianist, who WAS first heard in Brooklyn only the other day. at the closing musical of the Brooklyn Amateur Musical Club. She aroused much enthusiasm on this occasion, and her skill is being discussed widely on the Heights. The Asocog feels that it will have a drawing card in her. She has played with Theodore Thomas, and though under 20, is well known in recital and concert circles.

In still another way this entertainment of the Asacog Club has much interest for the world of soclety. Immediately after the plays and the music there is to be given the Arst Easter dance that Brooklyn will have. This eagerly anticipated and very nearly all the Heights set, younger and older, as well as people from other parts of the city, will be present. The ushers of the evening, who are yet to be chosen, will have charge of the floor and there is every likelihood that it will be a fine dance All this entertainment is for the raising of funds for the Asacog's "setlement" work. The Club will have to give up its house at 8 Willow street this spring.

and look for new quarters, owing to the tearing down of the old dwelling. Hence, even more than in previous years, the society wants its coffers well filled. This is the only entertainment of the Club this year, and fortunately for the Club it stands as a social function that must be attended. The entertainment committee has upon it Miss Edna Doughty, chairman; Mrs. William H.

Gary, Miss Matilda Marvin, Miss Elizabeth Packard, Miss Josephine Baer, Miss Annie Wilbur, Miss Lucy Rose and Miss Seaman. Yesterday, in the parlors of Mrs. Courtlandt P. Dixon of G0 Remsen street, the first recital of the Dannreuther Music (the Piano Forte Trio of New York) was given. All the expectations as to this being a popular Lenten leature for the Heights were realized, many representative women gathering and listening Hoffman, Dannreuther and Schenck, with delight.

The Merchants' Association of New Yorks has sent to the Governor, Licutenant. Governand members of the state Legislature a protest against the acquirement by the strong United States government of the Erie Canal system. The principal objection to transfer which is raised by the merchants is that political influences would be even more pronounced than they are to-day. An argument on these lines is concluded in the following words: "With the Erie Canal as an additional bait, what a morsel there would be for the hungry ariny of wire pullers and log rollers, to whom the large expenditures that would be required would be but du additional incentive for schemes." The canal, it is stated elsewhere in the memorial, is the most important single influence nOW existing for the regulation of railroad charges and an important factor in the prosperity of the people of the state. Finally the petitioner declare that not only should the state preserve the control of the canal.

but that the actual direction of the waterway should be placed in the bands of independent business men. and not with a commission of poliucians. IN PICTURESQUE HOLLAND. President Jones Describes Its People and Customs. Bride on racrive subject.
