I THE BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE. N"EW YOEK, TUESDAY, MARCH 27, 1900. 15 NEW ITER BILL OFFERED. Senator Ford's Efforts to Have It Advanced Checked by Grady. POOR PROSPECTS OF PASSING IT Attitude of Country legislators Not Encouraging Piatt and Tammany Opposed to More Ramapo Legislation. (Special to the Eagle.) Albany, March 27 An attempt was made last night to push the amended Morgan water bill through the Senate.' Senator Ford offered it as a new measure, in asking that, it be at once advanced. This was primarily done to give the Tammany men a chance to show how they stood regarding it, and thus to get at the sentiment o the city administration before taking any action to move the measure further. The reply was immediate. Senator Grady, leader of the minority, objecting, thus sending the bill to the cities committee again. In spite of the earnestness of the Governor to meet the demands of the Merchants' Association to give the city a chance to establish a municipal water supply that would be permanent, there is very little hope that even in its amended form the Morgan bill will pass this session. Assemblyman Morgan, who is certainly one of the most faithful legislators up here, did not lose a moment's time when he had his bill fixed up. He sought out Senator White and others of the up - state men who control the cities committee and asked them if the bill as it stood would not meet the objections they had raised. He did not meet with much encouragement. As a matter of fact these men do not at all agree with the Governor in his contentions concerning the city authorities. The Governor believes that since the city has not taken the trouble to become interested in the matter and to voice its sentiments officially one way or the other, the Legislature should step in and establish the water supply even if it should do so in violation of the home rule principle. The up - state Senators take quite a contrary view. They say that if the necessity for water was so dire, if famine and Are were threatened as the Merchants' Associa tion would have the Legislature believe, the city government certainly ought to know something about it and should be the most anxious to have some water shed obtained, since Ramapo is now forbidden to them. If the city does not want the water shed, and everything points that way, then, argue these up - state Senators, why should the Legislature go to all this trouble and annoyance, in the face of - the wishes of the organization leaders to the contrary, for a city that raises not even a finger to encourage the movement and rather seems to show that it wants noth ing of the kind. Thev so further and say that if the place is determined where the water is to be obtained and the city shows a willingness to issue bonds to pay for the conduit to take the water to New York, then they will pass the bill or do all they can to push it through. But so long as the city refuses to do that, then the mere establishment of the shed will be of no value just now when the authorities have it in their power and show a decided inclination cot to start the work. Such arguments as these are hard to con tend with and as there was no one to defend the new bill introduced by Senator Ford as a test last night, the chances of further Kamapo legislation are very far from encouraging to the Governor. As the Eagle has pointed out, Mr. Piatt does not want any more legislation of Wis character. Neither does Tammany. Neither Mr. Piatt nor Tammany cares to absolutely and openly oppose it in the shape of a passed hill. But the order has gone forth to keep the bill In tle committee and this will be done, if it can be done. . Messrs. Marshall and Davis would vote to get the bill out. without, a doubt, but there are no other senators now that would. As has often been pointed out, the emergency message Is of no consequence until the bill has been moved from the committee, and has the requisite number of votes to pass it. Then the message pushes it along a few days quick er than is ordinarily the case. The Governor will not issue the message unless the votes re there. SENATOR DAVIS' PROTESTS. Says Legislation Creating Expenses to Be Borne by New York City Is a Public Scandal. Albany, March 27 Senator D. P. Davis of Brooklyn last night called the attention of the Senate to the rapidity with which the Legislature was piling up the expenses upon New York City. Such legislation, he said had reached a point where it had become a public scandal. This occurred during the discussion of Sen ator Mitchell's bill to autnorize the courts to grant additional compensation to commission ers for tfle laying out ot puonc parits anu buildings in excess of the $10 per day allowed by the charter. Senator Davis' protest was, however, with out avail, as the bill was passed 32 to 7. UNION LABEL ON SCHOOL BOOKS (Special to tho Eagle.) Albany, March 27 Assemblyman Adams' bill requiring that all books used in the schools of Greater New York shall have the label of the Union Labor Association upon them passed the Assembly last night. An attempt was made to have it sent back to committee, but Assemblyman Delaney fought against recommitment, and tho bill went to a vote and was passed. ATTENDANTS AT L STATIONS. Albany, March 27 Assemblyman Walte of Brooklyn last night introduced a bill to compel the Kings County Elevated Railroad Company to have attendants on duty continuously day and night at all its stations. DOHERTY BILLS TO BE AMENDED. Albany, March 27 Senator Ford proposes to amend his bills for the relief of Captain Doherty of New York City, his wardman and roundsman, alleged to be guiltless by the confession of Mrs. Thurow, by providing that .if the policemen are adjudged guiltless they shall be granted the pay they lost during suspension. FLOWER MEMORIAL SERVICES. Albany. March 27 Memorial services in honor of ex - Governor Flower will be held in the Assembly Chamber on Tuesday evening, April 3. Senator Brown last night offered a concurrent resolution for a Joint meeting of the Senate and Assembly at that time, and it was unanimously carried. KAILROAD LOAN BILL ADVANCED. Albany, March 27 Last night, in the Assembly, Mr. Tralnor moved to strike out tho enacting clause of Mr. Hill's bill permitting railroad corporations to borrow money for other purposes than for completing and finishing or operating its road. The motion was lost, 32 to 57, and the bill advanced. NEW BILLS AT ALBANY.

The group of Brooklyn bookkeepers and accountants who are interested in the proposition to establish in this borough a branch ot the National - Association of Accountants and Bookkeepers met again last evening in the ofllces ot Louis de Casse, at 201 Fort Greene place. The first meeting was held a week ago at the same place and the attendance was small because of tho inclemency of the weather. The same influence operated last night and with the same result. The men who wero on hand, however, discussed the project informally, but with much apparent interest. Although the temper of the discussion indicated a feeling strangely favorable to organization, it was decided not to attempt then and there to formulate definite plans toward that end. This will be done at a later meeting. F. N. Hoyt and Mr. de Casse were appointed a committee to engage a suitable place for subsequent meetings. A desire to culminate the highest degreo of efficiency and reliability among bookkeepers and accountants is the controlling motive of the association. The men interested in the matter say that occasional meetings devoted to the discussion of the various methods of keeping books or doing accounts' work will certainly be very helpful to all concerned, and it is proposed later to inaugurate a sys tem of examinations, the passing of which would entitle a bookkeeper to a certificate wnich would be a guarantee of his compe tency. The association now has about seventy local branches and its general work nas oeen very successful. BROOKLYNITES INTERESTED. (Special to the Eagle.)

Will Be Built Underground and Operated by Electricity to Save Space. 60,000 GALLONS A MINUTE. To Empty Dry Dock No. 1 Cost Estimated to Be Fifty Thousand Dollars. Early in May work will be begun on the new underground pumping plant which Is to be installed in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. There are many unique and novel devices employed in the yard; but this proposed addition promises to eclipse them all. The plant will be the only one of its kind in the world and will have three times the capacity of the one which now occupies one of the large three story buildings, although it will be but one tenth of its size. It will be operated by electricity and will cost about $50',000. Bids will be opened on April 24 at "Washington. Tho plant will be built at the head of dry dock No. 1 and will be used to empty that basin. Land in the yard has grown to be so valuable that it has become necessary to economize space everywhere. Captain P. C. Asserson, civil engineer in charge, conceived the feasibility of constructing a new pumping station for the old stone dry dock with all the modern Improvements without taking up any land in the yard. He decided to place the whole plant underground in a chamber or well built of concrete and stone. He prepared plans for his novel idea and submitted them to the A UNIQUE navy yard officials at Washington. There they were immediately approved of. The underground station will be circular in form, 36 feet in diameter. The walls will be 24 inches thick, built within sheet piling. The top of the well will be covered with iron and concrete. There will be a small entrance on the top of the well leading to a spiral stair way by means of which the machinery in tne station can - be reached. Since the station will be located at the head of the scone dry dock and near the water front of the Wallabout Channel, it will be an easy matter to make the necessary connections for throwing the water out of the dock. This machinery necessary to operate the new pumping station will all be located within the wails of the well. It will consist of two centrifugal pomps with a capacity of 60, - 000 gallons a minute. These pumps win De operated by directly connected electric motors. There will also. be a smaller - .centrifu - gal pump similarly operated to drain the dry dock of water that may nna its way unu i basin while a vessel is docked. The pumping station, although very small, will be as complete as any of the largest pumping stations yet built. There are many unusual conditions in the local Navy Yard which must always be overcome whenever new buildings or dry docks are constructed. The ground having almost all been made it is quite difficult to secure substantial foundations, consequently it is necessary to drive piles on top of which all masonrv is built. This unoergrouna puuiy - inr ninrit will ho built on piles sunk far below the surface. The work of building the under ground plant promises to attract tne attention of civil and hydraulic engineers from all parts of the country. The station is to be completed before cold weather sets in next winter. It will be so constructed as to admit of the erection of other buildings over the top and will be practically hidden from view. The lighting will be by electricity. The most striking feature of the recon - ctniftinn of the numping plant will be the advance which it will show over methods of the past halt century ana tne economy ot operation of such modern pumping machinery. The present pumping house was built In 1851. A condensing, double - acting steam engine was SPACE It 1309 ' Am' Comparison Showing Relative Amount of Space Required by Pumping Plant of the Same Capacity in 1850 and 1900. installed in the building at that time. It is a cumbersome, old fashioned walking - beam engine, and in its day was considered of the most perfect type. The old engine occupies a space fifty - four feet square. It has a cylinder 50 inches in diameter, with a 12 - foot stroke. The walking beam is of cast iron and measures 31 feet from end to end, and weighs 15 tons. The piston rod is attached to the beam by the old parallel motion, first designed by Watts. The cast iron balance wheel Is 24 feet in diameter and weighs tons. Three boilers, each 26 feet in length and 7 feet In diameter, supply the engine with steam. The total weight of the metal In tne engine is 267 tons, while the total cost of the machine was $90,241.29. The new subterranean pumping station will cost only about half as much, occupy less than one - tenth as much room, without actually depriving the yard of any space, and yet do three times as much work at less expense and be far more easily managed and more at tractively constructed. It will be another curiosity added to .the already many Interesting features of the Brooklyn yard. REGISTERED AT EAGLE BUREAU. Eagle Bureau, 53 Rue Cambon.

Addresses by the Bevs. A. McGaffin and Dr. J. Douglas Adam. The parlor meeting of th3 Brooklyn auxiliary of the National Sabbath Alliance held at the residence of Mrs. L. D. Mason, 171 Jorale - mon street, yesterday, was well attended by representative women from all sections of the borough. The address of the Rev. Mi. McGaffln was of unusual Interest, as he contrasted the Puritan Sunday with the growing tendency to a continental one in this country. He then gave an instructive and quite liberal interpretation of the true spirit of Sunday observance. The Rev. Dr. J. Douglas Adam upheld the necessity of Sunday rest from various standpoints as a physiological need, as a spiritual need of man, and also in compliance with the command of God. He also called to mind the laws of the state in regard to Sunday, and said it only needed the creation of a popular sentiment to enforce them. Mrs. Charles Judson delighted the audience with her singing. A social hour followed tho meeting. The Sabbath Alliance holds its regular meetings the last Friday of each month at 10:30 at tho Central Branch of the Young Men's Christian Association. HARLEM AND THE BRONX. The new botanical museum building in Bronx Park, which has just been completed, is said to be the largest, most elegant, best illuminated and for its purposes the best adapted of any similar edifice in the world. The style is Italian renaissance; its imposing front has a length of 308 feet, and Its height to the top of the dome is 101 feet. The first floor Is devoted to the museum of economic botany and in it are now being installed specimens illustrating the useful products of plants, and specimens, drawings and photographs of the plants yielding them. The second floor contains the general museum, designed to exhibit types of the families and pumping station. tribes of plants from the most simple to the most complex. The third floor has the library as its central feature, consisting of a large reading room immediately under the dome and stack room just behind, shelved so as to carry about 10,000 volumes. The number of volumes now in the collection is about 7,500. of which about two - thirds are the botanical library of Columbia University, deposited un der an agreement between the board of managers and the trustees of the uni versity, while one - third are the prop erty of the garden. . West of the li brary rooms are laboratories for plant embryology, while east of the library are the laboratories for taxonomy. The herbar ium occupies the east wing of this floor, together with two smaller adjoining rooms; the herbarium of Columbia University is arrang ed. along the west side. of this hall, and that of the garden along the east side, the total number of specimens contained in the two collections being over 600,000. Over 500,000 additional specimens, not yet mounted, are in storage, but work in arranging and mounting them is going forward rapidly. The main halls of the museum are open to visitors from 9 o'clock in the morning to 5 in the after noon on every day of the week. The total cost of the. building, together with its furni ture equipment, has been about S300.000. It was designed by R. W. Gibson, architect, and built by the John H. Parker Company. The funds were provided by the city, under the authority of the Garden Act of Incorporation. Considerable work remains to be done on the surroundings, such as grading and construct ing a driveway and path approaches to the front central portico, the building of a foun tain designed to occupy the space within the outer curved retaining wall of the front ap proach, and of a parapet retaining wall around the terrace which surrounds the build ing. The Rev. Dr. Samuel H. Virgin, pasto: emeritus of Pilgrim Congregational Church, One Hundred and Twenty - first street and Madison avenue, who resigned on the first of January of the present year, has left Harlem and gone to his old homestead at West Chelmsford. Mass. The Ladles' Missionary Society of West Farms Presbyterian Church will hold e "measuring sociable" this evening at the res idence of Mrs. John B. Ryer, 1,240 Woodruff avenue, east of Boston road. DANGEROUS TREES. To the Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle Why is it that the police force of our very quiet city are so inactive and wait for the press or President Grout to point out to them their duty? In passing down Lafay ette avenue this morning I noticed flvo very dangerous trees, that are very badly decayed and liable to fall at any minute. On the north east corner of Lafayette avenue and St. Felix street there are three trees that have not had a leaf on in five years. One of them is inside the railing, and if it was not for the railing would have fallen long ago. un tne opposite, the northwest, corner there is another badly decayed at tho base. I notice another very large tree In front of 99 St. Felix street that is only a shell at the base, this stats of af fairs exists all over our city, and yet no one seems to pay any attention to it. President Grout is certainly to be commended for the manner in which he has cleared our streets of signs and other incumbrances, and I believe if his attention was called to this evil it would be remedied in short order. Very truly yours, H. L. J Brooklyn, March 26. 1900. REPLY TO "J. P." To the Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle: If your correspondent, J. P., in to - night's Eagle was a searcher of Scripture, instead of a mere reader, he would easily have found Dr. Hillis' text in the eighth verse of the One Hundred and Thirty - eighth Psalm: "I am shut up and cannot come forth." He may also find, by comparing all of the doctor's discourses, Instead of Miss Johnston's novel, with the Word of God, that, although they do have the mellifluous 'lilt of an auld sang." they are, after all. only an indication of the state of mind expressed by Eli - hu, one of Job's friends, to wit: "Behold my belly is as wine that hath no vent It is ready to burst like new bottles, so will I alter words and refresh myself. MclLVAINE. Brooklyn, March 23, 1900. NEW UTRECHT NOTES.

During the evening Miss Edna Baughman, soprano, sang several selections, Miss Kate Waldo Peck being the accompanist. Professor John E. Ciark. LL.D., of Columbia University, was the first speaker introduced. He said: "It is not strange that the people of America are thinking and talking about trusts. It Is encouraging that they can talk about them as calmly as they do. This country is the peculiar home of tne trusts, and very revolutionary is the change that their presence is making. If the carboniferous age were to return and the world were to be peopled again by dinosaurs, the change that would be made in animal life would scarcely seem greater than that which is made in business life by these monster like corporations. Their size, however, is the one thing about them that we are altogether sure of. We can tell as little whether they are benevolent or malevolent as whether the saurlans of early times were gentle or fierce, but tho looks in both cases imply a degree of fierceness. We do not definitely know whether they will permanently raise prices or lower them; whether they will permanently increase wages or reduce them; whether they will imperil Investments or make them more secure. It is a very striking fact that in the face of all this uncertainty about the character of trusts there is one type of law that the people of the United States have been able to agree upon, and that is a kind of law which, if enforced, would crush them. "We propose to kill the monster of uncertainties and on not much better evidence of his bad character than his mere size affords. More general than the opinion that they ought to be crushed is the conviction that they will not be so. They are here to stay and we know it. And this fact affords a rather melancholy explanation of the jaunty way in which we put upon the statute books laws which ought to crush them. Quite evidently these belong to that large class of statutes of which American legislators are in the habit of saying: 'We don't expect that this law will bo enforced, but it will be well to have it on the statute books.' "The fact that really explains the riddle is that statutes of this kind do their principal work, not when they are enacted into laws, but when they are made Into planks of political platforms. In the present temper of the public mind the sharper the measure the better for the party; the less workable it is the smaller the danger that it will do any harm in business. And so it comes to pass that platforms demand prohibiting laws with sharp pains and penalties attached to them. Such pledges have often been carried out and the laws Save often been forthcoming, but that is the end of it. "It cannot be long before we shall have to change this policy. We cannot 'fool all the people all the time.' We shall be forced in some way to get laws that will not only sound well, but work well. If we are to do that, tho first thing we need is genuine facts about the trust and its working. Of course, there is some truth in the popular impressions concerning the trust, and the epithets that the people apply to it describe some of its features. The trust is now, particularly in the Southwestern states, an octopus. It has an all - embracing and an all - crushing quality. By a slight change in the biological figure it is alluded to as the big fish that is eating the small fish. By a further figure that takes us away from biology unless an Idol is alive it is alluded to as a juggernaut. One writer has given this graphic description of its operation: 'The car will roll right on, the bones will crack, the victims will scream, the blood will flow and competition will be rolled out flat as a pancake upon the ensanguined highway.' This last description throws real light on the subject, for it is not competitors, men of flesh and blood, who are really to be killed, but competition as a process. The men are to survive, though not to survive as competitors of the powerful corporation. They are quite likely to be included in tho corporation; they may sell out their plants to it and hold some ot Its stock. But, if they do not do this, they are still alive, and, with whatever capital they have been able to save, they may go into some other occupation. What really has had lite taken out ot it is a mode of production, an abstraction. We have crushed out one way of doing business, saving the business men alive; and we have established another way of doing business. "This murdering ot an abstraction Is not Really, an offense that deserves hanging, K form of business apart from tho men who do business in that form is not a thing over which the police power of the state should extend protection in the same way in which it protects actual sentient life. This is not savincr the state has nothing to do about trusts, for it has in its hands the protection of DroDertv as well as the protection of life, and a competitor who, alter a test of strength with a trust, finds himseu alive out penniless, mav not unnaturally bring his case to the state. What he may clearly and legitimately do is to ask for an authoritative answer to the question whether his capital has gone, as much capital has gone before, as an unhappy and incidental payment lor a great general improvement or whether it has beeu filched from him in ways that amount to robbery though the law is not sharp enough to reach and suppress it." Professor Clark went on to say tnat tne problem was really solved by noting the distinction between centralization and monopoly. He said they were not identical, and went on to define the difference, and declared: "The investor is at present the most conspicuous victim of the trust, and measures for the protection of the honest and innocent capitalist, whosn money is filched in vast quantities of safe places into these very perilous ones, stand first in the immediate order of importance. It happens, fortunately, that the very thing that will protect tho shareholders will not injure the body of consumers, nor the excluded and injured laborers, but will actually contribute in a positive way toward the protection of these classes. There is no antagonism, but complete harmony, between the practical policy that stands guard over honest capital that has been lured into the trust and the one that protects the purchasing public and the workman." Professor Clark spoke ot the promoter's aim being accomplished when he has formed the combination. "What the investor wants, before all things, is security. He wants to have the trust make its money by producing goods and selling them. What a promoter and the speculator sometimes want is something so distinct from either of these as to draw a very sharp line between their interests and all legitimate interests, and, in the long run, the capitalist, the honest investor who wants simple interest for what ne nas put into tne enterprise, finds that he is as much injured hv the promoter and the conscienceless man ager, to whom the goods are sold, as is the public. It is very' fortunate tnat a poucy which will make caoital safe is not at all inconsistent with one that will protect the interests of the public, but is m a marked wav in hnrmonv with it. It follows, there fore, that the first thing to be done for the benefit of all parties interested is to clear out a mass of iniquity witnin tne orKauizauuu, and the measure that will accomplish this on n Tarcf? sr;,ile is publicity. Professor Clark dwelt upon tne point taat trusts must stand the turning of light upon their internal management, what tney own for how much it could be duplicated, and said that if such facts were known it inignt pre clude the need of laws against the watering of stock. The public, he said, also wanted to know whether trusts are to possess and use a mononolv Dower, spoke of potential compe tition. and of its effect, and continued: "In the long run there are two alternatives and onlv two ooen to a people wno would protect themselves from the unquestionable evils that genuine monopoly would bring upon them. One remedy is socialism; they may take the plants and work them in the interest of the public. This measure will find many supporters in any case, and the number of its supporters will greatly Increase if trusts shall grow In numbers and shall in no other way be manageable. Personally, I cannot believe that we shall be driven to this. The great efficiency of the potential competition that even now exists is a reason for believing that it can be made an adequate regulator." The speaker went on to say that what is wanted is a condition in which the moment when a trust puts up prices unduly a new competitor will be sure to enter the field and described what this new competitor will be able to do to make the trust keep within bounds of fair competition, spoke of a demand for uniformity of price, etc., and in concluding his argument said: "The obstacles in the case are not physical, but moral, and they will yield before popular determination if only there is enough of that. Indeed, I am not so sure that in proving that this measure of enforced uniformity of prices is one of the principal ones that we must ultimately rely on, it may not be useful to show that it is at present impossible. 'Do the impossible,' is sometimes a perfectly sound maxim of statesmanship, and it has been carried out again and again. It is because the people will not do certain things rather than because they cannot, that laws cannot be enforced. Put a nation face to face with the alternatives of making potential competition thoroughly efficient, or giving the state over to the perils of socialism, and it will appear that socialism, which now looks easy, will be the impossible thing, and redeeming competition will be the possible one. I defer the day of such legislation till the time when we shall have learned much by experience and shall have taken out of the problem all alternatives but one. When the necessity for keeping competition not merely alive, but thoroughly effective, shall be apparent to every one, moral obstacles will yield and we shall make ways where we cannot at present find them. In general, the policy is not to crush the monsters, but thoroughly to tame them. If we do that, if we make them our servants we shall not grudge them their efficiency." Professor John R. Commons, Ph. D., of the Bureau of Economic Research, Manhattan, was the next speaker, and he made a strong argument in favor of the public ownership of railroads, which, in the nature of things, should not be private corporations, and said there could be no halfway measure as be tween absolute public ownership on one hand and absolute private ownership on the other. He spoke of legislation for corporations and said it was a dangerous thing. The only alternative to trusts was public ownership, and the basic power of trusts would be overthrown if they were compelled to make uniform prices without discrimination. Edward F. Cragin of Chicago, whom President Creegan introduced as the man who made the Grant monument and the Nicaragua Canal possible, said there was a good deal of loose talk about trusts, but what there was of evil, if any. could be overcome by laws that would compel them to publish "statistics of their business. Dr. Henry O. Dwight, a missionary from Constantinople, and several other guests were introduced, and Dr. George W. Brush proposed a vote of thanks to the speakers and singers. AMATEUR MUSICAL CLUB.

DEAN'S ADDRESS. Work That Is Being Done for Street Arafcs by Several Organizations. "The Problem of the City Boy" was tha topic for discussion at the regular monthly - meeting of tho Univorsalist Club at tho Hotel St. Denis, Manhattan, last evening. The sub ject was discussed from several points of view. including those of the interested undenomi - . national workers, toe Children's Aid Society;.' and the Salvation Army. The meeting was also the yearly one fotv the election of ofllcers and after the first part of the dinner had bean finished the men, who alone are the members of the club, withdrew to an adjoining room for the election of the officers for the coming year. E. H. Cole was elected president; H. A. Tuttle, vice president; William H. Vogel, treasurer;; S. M. Child, secretary: L. W. Seavey, J. A. Rich and C. L. Haskell, directors. j Herbert F. Gunnison, the retiring president of the club, presided at the speech making. The first speaker was George Hamilton, Dean, a worker in down town, New York, among the street boys. Mr. Dean has been interested in the formation of boys' clubs for . many years and spoke from a wide experience. Mr. Dean began by saying that tha city boy of the poorer classes is on the street all tho time that he is not in school or asleep. And that, being naturally bright, ha is learning things on the street just as much as he is in school. The reason the boy is on the street Is either because there is no place for him in the home or that he has no home. 1 "The clubs," said Mr. Dean, "are formed to reach these boys. The old idea was to get just as many boys as possible into the club. The idea rather now is to get at a few boys. It is better to reach ten boys ten times thaa 100 boys once. And the new idea also to formv the boys into groups, rather than to lump! them together Into one big class. By form - - ing a number of small groups the teacher or the instructor is able to get closer to eacbi boy, to find out his individual needs and givei to him just the kind of instruction necessary. "Clubs may be divided into several classes, in which the undenominational may be nameo) first. There are a number of these organiza tions, in which the six branches of the Youngl Men's Christian Association take a prominent' part. inen tnere are the denominational clubs, such as the St. George Boys' Clubs, the Baptist Boys' Brigade and other cluhai connected with well known churches. Finally! tnere are wnat may De called the group clubai of the college settlements. One of thesa group clubs is called the Knights of King! Arthur. The idea, and it is a most excellent one, originated in Boston. The club has thai three grades of pages, esquires and knights. All are pages at first, and as a boy does somai meritorious act or completes a set task in his studies he is advanced to esquire and ta knight. "As to the work nearly every club has its game room, in which an attempt is made to; teach the boys that play Is educational andV that play rightly conducted should teach honesty and chivalry. The big boys are taught to give way to the smaller boys and the small boys are taught to play with the larger boys) honestly. Some clubs have circulating games, games that are taken home and taught to parents and brothers and sisters. Soma clubs depend on the gymnasium. I think! that at first the work in the boys' clubs was! too individualistic. There was not enough team work. Now base ball, basket ball and: similar games are played. "If there were anything that I should say, In the line of advice to intending workers among the boys' clubs, it is: 'Don't descend to the boys' level. Put your standard high and the boys will come up to it. If you aro going to have a musician to play for the hoys, have him play his Rubenstein and Beethoven. Don't let him play T Want You, Mah Honey, and so on, tho tunes of the music halls. Fop the boy will enjoy the Rubenstein just a3 much, and in time come to prefer it. Military drill has been found to be of great service. It teaches the boys to be clean and neat, to be erect in their bearing, to hear and obey orders and to realize that they are part of ai great army in their every - day life. In soma' of the clubs there are libraries. "One club has an election at intervals for its own officers, conducted on the style o? a real election in New York State, with ai ballot and with party columns, and the pastera and posters. Sometimes the posters are x bit too personal, and the teachers have to taka them down. "The boys' clubs of this city are having ai trying time to get along. I am sure that it people only realized what work they are do ing there would be more money contributed to their support. And if any of you havaj anything that you can give to any one olj these clubs I am sure that you would be mora than repaid for your outlay by a sight of thai results which would follow." Robert Brace of the Children's Aid Society! told of the work his society is doing, particularly in sending homeless boys to good homes in the country. "Within the last forty - seven, years," said Mr. Brace, "the Children's Aid? Society has sent over 22,000 homeless boya to comfortable homes in the country, generally in the West. The results have been most satisfactory, and our boys are now growing: up to be the leading citizens of tho sectional of the country in which they were located." Don C. Seltz talked in a humorous vein ot the newsboys' strike of last summer, and Colonel Thomas Holland. Captain Charles Quelty and Miss Erickson of the Salvation Army told of the work of the Salvation Armyi in tho slums. The Rev. Mr. Rose of Newark described the work among the boys lot his church. A BRYANTTE'S THANKS. To the Editor of tho Brooklyn Eagle: Will the writer of tho article, "Mr. Bryan's fortieth birthday," kindly alow a Bryanite to thank him for that term "motley," which he so graciously applies to those who admire Mr. 3ryan? If "motley" means all kinds and conditions of men, we cheerfully concede that Mr. Bryan's philosophy is perfectly adapted to them, having grown out of a knowledge ot their needs. Certain classes of men are lika sheep, being as alike in the cut of their coats and the size of their brains as possible. 'They go in droves, they think in grooves and their minds are never "ragbags" of heterogeneous ideas. There is something capacious about a "ragbag," but in this case you will never find, enough room tor a new idea to turn around - in. Like sheep they are perfectly satisfied it the pasture is good, but let anyone disturb them while feeding and they will cry. Nothing motley about them; but after all t think the average Bryanite will prefer tha "motley garb" to the sheep's clothing. A coat of many colors will become an honorable garment, if these be red for courage, white for purity, blue for truth and violet for constancy. We may not doubt that in India, centuries ago, when the high priests looked superciliously down upon a "great multitude" with, faces eagerly turned toward "a new light," that term of reproach, "motley," must have been salve to the priestly conscience. Everywhere in every age the new light, whether it be a flaming torch held aloft by some heroic hand or a tiny rushlight of faith and charity will draw unto itself a "motley gathering." Just so long as this world needs men who are fearless and incorruptible and what greater need have we to - day just so long will all kinds and conditions of men follow as a magnet the man whom they instinctively know that they can trust.
