I THE DAILY , . OCTOBER'?. 1802. 13 .TUESDAY. rARDYCITY-OFFICIALS- MAKE CONTROLLER FRET Hr. Grout Twits Mayor and Member of Board of Estimate for Being Late at Meeting President ' Wells of Department of Taxes Explains Increase in His 1903 Estimate Nostrand and Rogers Aveniies to Be Graded and Paved More Budget Hearings Tomorrow. The Board of Estimate and Apportionment was scheduled to meet at 2:30 yesterday afternoon to renew the consideration of departmental estimates for 1903. At the appointed hour Controller Grout was the only member of the Board In his place, ready to proceed with business. The Controller was plainly annoy- ed by the tardiness of his fellow members, and moved about restlessly. Then he took out his watch and laid It on the table where the delinquents would be sure to see It when they came In. Mr. 1 Grout then made some pointed allusions to the value of being punctual In all , things, as per schoolboy copy books, and remarked Incidentally that he has wasted a good many hours waiting for the other members of the Board. Presently Mayor Low came In. He glanced at the clock and a rather guilty smile came over his face as he greeted the Controller. Then President Fornes, at the Board of Aldermen, appeared and was twitted on his tardiness. About ten 'minutes iater President Cantor arrived, and Mayor Low called the meeting to or-'der, there being eleven votes represented. The others straggled In, some of them an hour late. . The Board then took up the consideration of the estimate of the Department of 1 Taxes and Assessments. President Wells ;sald that the Board allowed him 3321,000 for 1902, and that he wanted 3349,000 for 11903, an Increase of 323,900. Controller Grout at once wanted to know why the additional amount was 'asked, and President Wells told hln that he would require twenty additional clerks in the event of extra work on the assessments. Desks, books and other working materials for these would have to be provided. President Wells added that the appropriation- for this year was barely enough for the department to get along on. "That Is Just what an appropriation should be," returned Controller Grout. Mr. Wells then went on to explain In detail the reasons for the increase In amounts asked. This led to a discussion of the amount of -work done by the employees- of the Tax Department, and President Wells said there is one deputy who Is supposed to assess 26,000 parcels of property between Sept. 1 and Jan. 1. "How many is that a day? asked Mayor tow. It la about one every minute and a quarter, replied President Wells. Controller Grout then asked . if he thought it would tend to equalize assessments, In line with Mayor lows scheme of full value assessment. If the lists of assessed values were published during the time when the tax books are open for OR. MIN IMS ON mm HISTORY Addresses Catholic Womens Association in the Berkeley Lyceum. Emphasizes Important Bearing of Philosophy. 1 Dr. William T. Vlymen yesterday delivered the first lecture In a course of tblrty on the History of Education, before the Catholic Womens Association, in the Berkeley Lyceum, Lincoln place, 'near Seventh avenue. Being the lntro-'ductory talk on the subject, Dr. Ylymens lecture dealt with the scope of the course, and with the books of reference applicable to the subject. Many standard works on Rome and Greece were recommended by the speaker for his hearers perusal. Especial mention was made of the works of Cardinal Newman, Guizots History of Clvillza-tlon," the essays on universities in the "Encyclopedia Brlttanlca, J. A. Sy-monds works and Herbert Spencer on "Education, which, the speaker said, . was very beautifully treated, but in a Very wrong way. The subject is so broad, said Dr. Vlymen, "that It 1b Impossible to give a list of books to properly cover It. The history of education involves, first, the study of ideas; second, the expression of those ideas through education. Parents send their children to school," he continued, "because it is there they get the best preparation for their future lives. The question before the school teacher is how the child can best be prepared mentally, morally and physically for the future. At different times peo-'ple have believed different ways were the best but always tried what they thought would be most successful. In studying the history of education, said Dr. Vlymen, we will take up these ..various Ideas, but we must also study the philosophy of the several periods. By the study of the individual idea we get what experience alone has taught. By the study of the philosophy we get more. For the experience you have had, I have had, the other has had, is of necessity limited by our observation. But when we go into philosophy we get an Insight Into what should be, not what is, and our views are broadened and we have more clear and definite Ideas of education. In our course we will touch upon both points right along, said Dr. Vly men In conclusion. "Your reading will touch on these points, and you will be studying the best methods of education in the best kind of way. You will be i enabled to avoid the errors of your predecessors, and your outlook will be broadened You will have more sympathy for beginners and will not attach so . much Importance to individual peculiarities. The same lecture will be delivered tomorrow afternoon at 4:15 in McCaddln Hall, Berry street, near South Third, . for those who will take the course with the Eastern District section of the associations classes. POWERS ISSUES CALL President P. T. Powers, of the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues, has Issued a call to all the league and club presidents In the as-, eoctatlon to attend the second annual meeting In this city, on Oct 28. The call says that business of vital Importance will be brought before the delegates, and the report of the work done by the or-. ganlzatton during the season just ended ' will show, that it has been successful. h publio Inspection. President Wells thought it would call attention to inequalities, but would require a good deal of printing, as there are 650,000 parcels of real estate in the city. One of Mr.' Wells' deputies who was present misunderstood the drift of the talk, and said that if such a thing were printed the ofTice would be overrun with taxpayers making Inquiries on all subjects. It was explained to him that the lists would be printed only once a year, and he made no further comment. After some more discussion along the same lines, Mayor Low Bald ho thought the Board understood the situation, and the hearing closed. The Board then took up the consideration of a public Improvement calendar. Two were of particular Importance to Brooklyn, for regulating, grading and paving Nostrand, avenue, between Mal-bone street and Flatbush avenue; estimated cost, 3123,000; assessed value, 3461,500; and to regulate, grade and pave Rogers avenue, between Flatbush avenue and Malbone street, with granite blocks, including curbing and the laying of cement sidewalks. Also for, the opening of the street from the dividing line of the former towns of Flatbush and Flatlands to Flatbush avenue; estimated cost, 3109,000; assessed value, 3591,300, Both matters were adopted. The resolutions excluded the space between the railroad tracks, the railroad company being supposed to pay for that. A resolution to change the lines of Shore Road, between Seventy-first street and Bay Ridge avenue, was reported by the engineer of the Board as a scheme to enhance the value of property in the neighborhood, and he reported against it, unless the property benefited paid for It. A similar report was made by Park Commissioner Young. President Swanstrom, however, wanted the matter adopted at once, as he said the change of line weuld wipe out the only unsightly spot on the Shore Road. After some discussion a public hearing was set for Nov. 14. Hearings on the budget will continue to-morrow and the balance of the week. The calendar Is as follows: Wednesday Departments of Charities and Corrections, Health, Parks, Tenement House, Water Supply, Gas and Electricity, Bellevue and allied hospitals and the Art Commission. ' Thursday Presidents of the boroughs. Friday Board of Assessors, Board of City Record, Commissioners of Civil Service and Jurors, Sheriffs, Registers, Public Administrators, County Clerks and Coroners. A number of hearings have also been j set for next week. PIPER AND PARTRIDGE MEET. Second Deputy Police Commissioner Piper was closeted with Police Commissioner Partridge for more than two hours this morning. When they separated Commissioner Partridge said that he had been Instructing the new Deputy In his duties and outlining the policy of the department to him. No orders have as yet been Issued which bear the new Deputys signature. The old Council Chamber In City Hall was crowded with prospective bidders this morning for city contracts. Bor-ouhg President Cantor opened proposals for making alterations and repairs to the interior of City Hall, the erection of three new public baths in Manhattan, for laying 47,157 square yards of asphalt pavement In front of and around various school houses, and for erecting and maintaining street signs and boxes on electric light poles and gas lamps. N. YV. Ryans bid of 329.863 for altering the interior of City Hall was the lowest and will probably be accepted. For overahullng the steam heating apparatus and repairing gas pipes and electric wires, Walker & Chambers were the lowest, with 316,900. For the three new public baths to be erected Murphy Brothers were the lowest bidders in each Instance, but as their aggregate bids exceeded the amount appropriated it is doubtful If their estimates will be accepted unless President Cantor can convince the Board of Aldermen to allow him more money. The New York Edison Company were the only bidders for furnishing, erecting, maintaining and illuminating street sign boxes on electric light poleB. The prices ranged from 310 to 312.50 for different styles of boxes. For the same style of sign boxes, Joseph N. Early bid 318.98 and 316.98, but the contract does not call for maintaining the Illumination. The Uvalde and Barbour Asphalt companies vied with each other for the asphalt contracts. The prices ranged from 31-05 per square yard up. DIED AFTER TAKING Mrs. Caroline Allen, a resident of Sta Pleton, Staten Island, died yesterday afternoon, at the Turkish Bath establishment, 32 and 34 Clinton Btreet, after undergoing treatment there. Mrs. Allen came to Brooklyn yesterday morning and visited her sister, Mrs. Pauline Bangs, of 279 Van Brunt street. . and afterwards decided to take a Turkish bath as a cure for rheumatism. She had completed the bath, and was undergoing an electric manipulation at the hands of Mary Woodruff, an attendant, when she became suddenly ill, and died a few hours later. Coroner Flaherty was notified and will hold an Inquest CRISSMAN-RILEY WILL TO BE CONTESTED. The wHl of Mrs. Caroline E. Crossman-Rlley, who died recently In Brooklyn, Is being contested by seven of her relatives, Thme estate is estimated at 34,000,000 by the contestants, the bulk of which was left to the Brooklyn Home for Aged Men.

Ex-Secretary Gage on the Country's Brilliant Future. With ceremony befitting the occasion, and exercises appropriate to so Important an event, the cornerstone of the new custom house In Bowling Green, Manhattan, was laid this afternoon by Secretary of the Treasury Leslie M. Shaw. Committees on Invitation rom the Chamber of Commerce, the Produce Exchange, the Merchants Association and the Maritime Association, and also the Reception Committee, of which Hon. George R. Bid well was chairman, met Secretary Shaw and ex-Secretary Lyman J. Gage at the office of Collector N. N. Stranahan In the old custom house at 1:30 o'clock. All were taken in carriages to the new custom house site at Bowling Green, escorted by four companies of United States troops and two of the Naval Militia of New York. At the site a salute of seventeen guns was fired at 2 o'olock In honor of the Secretary of the Treasury. There was music by the military band and the exercises were opened with prayer by the Right Rev. Frederick Burgess, Bishop of the diocese of Long Island. The cornerstone was formally laid by Secretary Shaw, a salute of twenty-one guns was fired, and speeches delivered by Mr. Shaw and Mr. Gage. The silver trowel, presented for the occasion by Tiffany & Co., was presented by Colector Stranahan to the Secretary of the Treasury, and the exercises closed with a benediction pronounced by the Right Rev. Monsignor Joseph Mooney, D.D., vicar-general of the diocese of New York. Secretary Shaw said: "It Is eminently proper that the corner stone of the United States Custom House, about to be erected In the most important commercial city of the hemisphere, should be laid with fitting ceremonies. The national as well as the International importance of the Port of ew York, or, I might better say, the port of the United States located at New York, Is not likely to be overestimated. Write Its history and you have written the history of the commerce of the United States. To this port eighty million people bring 230,000,000 of the surplus product of their farms, 36,000,000 of the surplus from their forestries, 330,000,000 of the surplus from their mines and more than 3200,000,000 of the surplus of their manufactures. From this port the same people carry inland 3560,000,000 Imports, and the Collector of this port Is paid 3165,-000,000, 65 per cent, of the customs duties o' a nation. To the wharves surrounding this city four thousand vessels engaged In foreign trade annually are tied; from their decks descend more than half a million people and from their spacious holds are unloaded nine million tons of freight. It Is never idle to suggest means by which our commerce may be extended, our mercantile Influence enhanced, and our benefit to the world Increased. We speak the natural language of commerce. German may be the language of science and French may be the language of diplomacy, but English is the language of commerce. We labor under a disadvantage, as compared with some other countries. In our standard of weights and measures. Sooner or later we must come to the metric system, and In my Judgment, the soon the better. But we have the advantage over all other great commercial countries In our monetary denominations. I wish I might say In monetary system. But the dollar, dime, cent and mill, are the natural complement to the metric system of weights and measures. So soon as all our forms of money Bhall be made by statute Interchangeable with gold; when the 60 per cent, flat in the silver shall be protected as well as the 100 per cent, flat In the greenback: and when the possel-sor of any form of our money shall have the right to have it tested by the standard, then will exchange on this western metropole be as acceptable the world around as drafts written in less convenient forms of money. The recent acquisition of territory beyond the seas cannot but help to advance our commercial influence; and our commerce can but benefit the people of these Islands. United States money followed the flag to Porto Rico, and It will not be many years until the prices current of the surrounding Islands will be written therein and all balances will be settled In exchange on this city. "Give us a currency as secure, a banking policy as elastic, a system of weights and measures as convenient as our rivals, give us non-partisan1 support to such measures as will establish lines of steamship communication with countries In outh America, South Africa and the Islands adjacent; give us the Isthmian Canal, and we ought to be able to maintain such relations to the commerce of the world as will conserve the peace and good will of all nations, while we carry beneath every sky a language that breathes liberty and patriotism, and the object lesson of a flag that standB fqy equal rights and Justice, according to law. Ex-Secretary of the Treasury Lyman J. Gage, following Mr. Shaw, said: A peculiar Interest always attaches to the laying of a cornerstone of a great public edifice. It 1b an exhibition of creative power, which shows In man a reflection of that divine power whlc hestabllshed the earth and set the stars In their course. Here a wpnderful transformation Is to be wrought out. Under the direction of human genius and mechanical skill, the power of steam and the lever of life is to lift dull stone from the quarry, give It beautiful form and lift It high In the air. I have Just said that the cornerstone with this attending ceremonial contains a prophecy of a nobler future. In this particular case It is something more. It Is the final word of a history. If the historian, deprived of all other records, could be told the story of the United States Custom House, Its small beginnings, Its frequent migrations from smaller to larger quarters, and Its growing activities, he could, out of such material alone, construct a fairly faithful sketch of our American growth, In population, In commerce and In Industry. "The eighty odd millions of our people will become two hundred millions before these granite walls will show the, first touch of time. Looking backward, we may be grateful for unexampled progress and prosperity. Looking forward, the patriotic optimist may be well excused If hts Imagination is warmed with visions of greater achievement In the years to come.

IS PEANUT POLITICS Up-State Democrats Disappointed Because He Clings to His Old Tactics. ONLY ONE ISSUE, COAL STRIKE Taxation and Canals Not Bothering the Leader. (Special to The Standard Union.) ALBANY, Oct. 7. Just before the State convention of the Democrats under the leadership of David B. Hill at Saratoga, a prominent Democrat, and a Hill Democrat at that, expressed the opinion of himself and a number of others that It would be better for the party If the Senator (Hill) would not labor so much under the Idea that there was no one In the party competent to draft a platform or attend to the multitudinous details of nominating a State' ticket. Hls Idea of it was that ex-Sen-ator Hill was running too much In a rut, and the platforms of the State Democracy gave too frequent evidence of being fashioned by the same hand and laboriously wrought out by the same brain. It was no disloyalty to Hill which actuated the remark, but as one of the leaders of the party he thought some new blood should be Infused In the party dnd some fresh matter should be injected Into the platform, together with a new and more vigorous (ip-to-date style. Since the nomination o(t the Democratic ticket and the adoption of the platform this idea has recurred to more than one Democrat, while the Republicans have pointed out with derogatory comments the earmarks of Hill In the platform. Every honest observer, whether Democrat or not, Is ready to admit that nothing short of a tidal wave can possibly carry so light a ticket Into office. Its nomination In a hurry at the last moment to prevent th4 selection of Its own candidate by the delegates, who had been extensively advertised as free and untrammeled. Is considered but a repetition of the tactics which earned years ago for Hill the title of "peanut politician. Since the convention ex-Senator Hill has given further evidence through hls organs and campaign bureaus that he is the same old "peanut politician" and,po-lltlcal demagogue. He has apparently abandoned ail attempts to maRe the various State ticket candidates appear worthy of support, dropped all State Issues such as canals and taxation, of which the Democratic press of the State made much before the convention, and centered all hls attention and effort on the one new plank In the platform, the advocacy of the Government control and operation of the anthracite coal mines in Pennsylvania. It Is a calamity howl which he seeks to raise, and If he was a praying man would undoubtedly pray for an Immediate cold wave, long continued and attended by widespread suffering. That he really favors the extinguishment of private ownership In coal mines no one with an intimate knowledge of hls normal trend of thought believes for an Instant. But like the small politician and demagogue he welcomes any calamity and distress which may possibly Inure to the benefit of his party and himself. From his actions it would seem that he was more Interested In the coal strike than President Roosevelt or the operators or the striking miners. From Wolfort's Rcost and hls law offices on Broadway he directs the output of all campaign matter from the headquarters of the Democratic State machine, established this year In Albany. Nothing comes forth to the line of Democratic newspapers across the State but editorials and comments on the coal strike squared to the coal mine plank in the platform he prepared for the delegates at Saratoga. Hill Is thoroughly Infatuated with the coal plank, and when the spell-binders begin to lift their voices on behalf of the revived Hill Democracy, It Is expected they will be allowed to talk of nothing but the coal miners strike and the, advantages qf national control and operation of the anthracite coal mines. Bids for a supply of 500 tons of anthracite coal for the Fire Department were to have been opened at Headquarters In Manhattan this morning. When the hour for opening the bids arrived not one bid was found to have been made. Commissioner Sturgis said that no great hardship would result, as the coal was intended for the heating of buildings alone, and the department has on hand sufficient supply to last for some time.

Investigate Employment of Boys Without Certificates. H. R. Yetman, associate superintendent In charge of Truant Schools, presided at the meeting of the attendance officers of Brooklyn, held yesterday .afternoon at the Board of Education room, 171 Livingston street. For the first time In the, history of Brooklyn schools parents of children who have been reported as not attending schools were summoned before the superintendent to expla&i the absence of their children, and, in the case of truants, to sign an order authorizing the superintendent to commit the child to the truant school. When the public schools open In September the authorities use every means to get the children into school and instruction commences. To the ordinary mind this consists of opening the doors and admitting the children. There Is, however. In a large cosmopolitan city like New York, numbers of fanfilles, particularly those where the parents are of foreign birth, that do not know the law requiring the attendance In school at least eighty days In the year of all children under 14 years old. And It Is the duty of the attendance officers to enforce it. During the month of September the attendance officers go tnrough their respective districts, and on the first of October every child out of school who should be In attendance Is reported. No commltals for truancy can be made until Oct. 1, and the meeting yesterday was to consider those cases that the attendance officers have Investigated. The first case was that of a boy over 14 years old, who had hot finished out his school period. The youngster was not on hand, but the mother reported that she and the father were unable to make the boy attend school, although they had pleaded with and threatened him. The regular course in the past would have been to Issue a committal to tne Truant School and send an officer for the boy. A new plan, however, is now In operation. The mothers sign a committal and the officer Issued a card which the boy must take to school each day.- Hls attendance Is certified on the card by the principal and carried home each evening by the bey, thereby showing his attendance'. Nothing further Is done unless the boy breaks his parole. On hls failure to attend, the principal will report to the truant officer and the boy will be committed to the Brooklyn Truant School. The second case was that of an Italian woman who has absolutely refused to send her 13-year-old daughter to the schools. An interpreter was necessary to make the woman understand that the child RAILROADS. READING BYSTEM NEW JERSEY CENTRAL R. R.

Failure on the part of the mother to comply with the law will result, in the girls being taken from her and turned over to the Qerry Society. i A neatly dressed widow- appeared In answer to a aummons in the third case. She asked permission to keep her 12-year-old daughter out of school, claiming that as she was a- widow she required the childs services. She was notified that the law compelled the child to attend school, and that she must comply with It. The little girl did not look to be over 9 years old, but looked - remarkably bright. 8upt. Getman remarked that It would be a sir) to refuse such a child Sn -education. In no other cases were the parents present, and no committals were made, but many other, cases were reported to the truant officers that will result In many commitments before the end of the month. "I anticipate, said Supt. Getman, "that about ten per cent- of the cases reported will result In the boys being sent to the Truant School. . That will mean that In a short while the school will be filled to its utmost capacity, and we will be obliged to discharge some of the boys In order to provide for the others. At present we have accommodations In Brooklyn for 150 and at the Manhattan Truant School for sixty-eight. These accommodations are wholly Inadequate, and something must be done. Many of the cases turned over to us ought, never to require any action on our part . Principals In many cases are all too ready to get rid of a troublesome boy, and when we Investigate we find that It Is a case of discipline and not truancy. Department stores are employing boys who should be in school, many of them not having employment certificates, and these must also be Investigated. But of all the cases brought to our attention only about 10 per cent, are truants, and many of these can be made to attend If the parent has a probatlonal card issued for the child and watches his attendance In school. We exhaust every possible means before we send them to the truant school, and It Is only the worst cases that are seriously treated. The majority of truants are of Italian or Irish parentage. German and Hebrew children appear to appreciate the value of an education and we have no trouble with them. - In Brooklyn there are sixteen attendance officers; in Manhattan, twenty-six; In Richmond, seven, and In Queens, seven. , In no other borough, It is stated on good authority, is the work of the attendance officers as efficient as In Brooklyn. Truancy meetings are held at the Brooklyn Board of Education building each Monday afternoon. DWELLING HOUSE TO BE USED AS A SCHOOL Tha Building Committee of the Board of Education at a meeting held yesterday afternoon decided to rent a two-atory a welling house at the corner of Henry and Harrison etreete, Brooklyn, for school purpose!.
