Albany March 15.�?As far As the Capitol is concerned there was a decided Lull in the senator ship fight to Day. For a few Days at least the Battleground has shifted to new York City where according to reports which reached some of the tammany lawmakers to Day there will be a conference of democratic leaders from different parts of the state before the week ends. In the meantime gov. Dix is awaiting word from tammany Leader Charles f. Murphy both with regard to the attitude of William f. Sheehan on the question of his withdrawal As an aspirant to the seat in the United of tates Senate which recently was vacated by Chauncey Depew and with regard to the attitude of the organization leaders with whom or. Murphy is to Confer Over the senator ship situation. With senator Franklin d. Roosevelt Leader of the democratic insurgents in the legislature both Thomas m. Osborne the governor s Forest fish and game commissioner and William Church Osborn the governors Legal adviser left for new York this afternoon. They have taken an Active interest 1 the senator ship fight against or. Sheehan and the general belief Mere is that they went to new York in connection with the general powwow which is proposed. Senator Roosevelt returned to Albany late to night. He said his visit to new York was on personal business and that he had teen no political leaders while there. There was one development Here to Day growing out of the senatorial contest which aroused general interest. Assem Blyman Artemas Ward a Republican member from new York has a concurrent Resolution before the Assembly com Mittee on ways and Means providing for an investigation a a of any and All charges of corruption and undue influence in connection with the election of a United states senator. He was prompted in introducing it by the assertion made under oath by assemblyman Harold j. Friedman from the Twenty ninth new York District earlier in the contest to the effect that a place on the Bench of the municipal court had been dangled before his eyes As an inducement for him to change his vote in favor of or. Sheehan. Or. Ward went before the committee to Day with a request that it act on his Resolution. A in the last few years a said or. Ward Quot charges of undue influence on members of the legislature have been so general that some measure should be taken either to put a Stop to any and All Idle talk in regard thereto if unfounded or to run Down and punish the guilty parties if these statements Are True. Quot the legislature has left unnoticed in the past All such charges. In my opinion 7\e owe it to ourselves to adopt some Means by which to Deal Quick and effectively with such charges in so far As they relate definitely As in this instance to any member or members of the legislature. I believe it Wouita be a Good plan in the future for the legislature to have a standing com Mittee in either House with Power to summon before it such members or persons As make definite charges m regard to the exercise of undue influence la legislative a under the new rules adopted this Yual the Assembly committee on to ays and Means is required to report either favourably or unfavourably to the House any Resolution carrying with it an appropriation As does the Ward Resolution under the circumstances it was. Not in the Power of that body to kill the Resolution in committee so at an executive session it was decided that the ways and Means committee should redraft the Resolution and name the Assembly judiciary committee which is safely controlled by the organization to take up the proposed investigation. _. ,. The Case of or. Friedman is not the Only one of undue influence according to reports. Members of the Little band or insurgents Are subjected to All sorts of Petty annoyances which can be nothing but retaliation for the stand they have taken in opposition to tammany or the tammany Boss. Assemblyman co sad of Seneca the Nestor of the insurgent movement had a taste of this to Dav when the Assem blvd after a heated debate killed a Bill providing for the changing of a Highway .

Or. Co sad is very much broken up Albany n. Y., March 15.�?supt. O. A Cheney of the state banking department in his annual report to the legislature on savings Banks Trust companies Safe Deposit companies and miscellaneous corporations Calls attention to Day to the almost unbroken decrease annually during the last Twenty years in the percentage of surplus on Market value of investment to deposits in the savings Banks of the state. Such percentage is to Day less than one half of what it waa in 1890, and the superintendent the situation deserves careful consideration. He quotes from his annual report of a year ago in which he said a the safety of our savings Banks is indeed undoubted and there can be no successful Challenge of the principle that every Dollar of net earnings that can be so apportioned with prudence should be distributed to depositors for whose sole Benefit the savings Banks have been established. But the qualifying words with prudence a deserve to be emphasized. A a absolute safety of savings funds should always be the primal consideration. The surplus of a savings Bank represents its margin of safety. Moreover surplus adds to the earning Power of the Bank and the statute itself guards that surplus with jealous care by permitting no part of it to be paid out in dividends until it reaches 15 per cent of the amount due depositors. It cannot be overemphasized that the management of every savings Bank whose deposits Are increasing should carry proportionate sums to its surplus fund at every dividend Quot the occurrences of the past year and existing conditions in the financial and economic world or. Cheney now declares a have not detracted from but have further emphasized the words of caution contained in that statement. W Hile there May be no immediate danger the situation is such that it deserves and is receiving the careful considerations of the most thoughtful and conservative men connected with the savings Bank system of Tho state. Quot various remedies have been suggested. In fact it has been proposed to arbitrarily limit by statute the interest or dividends paid depositors with savings Banks to fixed rates proportionate to surplus already accumulated. The purpose of course is to build up a sufficient surplus to protect depositors against loss and this end might possibly be served by the enactment of a Law requiring every savings Bank of this state to set wide to surplus before the declaration of dividends to depositors a certain percentage of its net profits for the period until such time As its surplus based upon Market values shall be equal to at least five per centum of its deposits and a less percentage until its surplus based upon Market values shall be equal to at least ten per centum of its deposits. Quot the problem under existing conditions is so complicated by various considerations and so Many of the Best minds of the state familiar with All its vast intricacies Are engaged in its solution that i shall refrain at the present time from making any express recommendation but i do bespeak for this plan or some modification of it your very serious consideration.�?�.

Dix was considerably exercised to it Dav Over certain reports concerning the senatorial situation emanating from Albany. He complained that unfair questions had been asked of him by one of the correspondents and announced that hereafter he would answer Only such inquiries As were put to him by a single correspondent who should be delegated by the others to act As spokesman.

Anxious to Como in says sponsor of annexation Bill. Special to the new York times. Albany March 15.�?westchester is knocking at the Gates of new York City for admission according to senator Mcclelland of new York who introduced a Bill incorporating a new Borough of the City to be composed of Yonkers new Rochelle and mount Vernon and the towns 1 of Pelham and East Chester. The toll makes annexation subject to a vote of the communities it is proposed to absorb. Westchester is the name Given to the new Borough senator Mcclelland said representatives of civic bodies in mount Vernon Ana other localities had asked that the Bill be introduced. He referred to the water Supply problem in Westchester communities and said mayor Gaynor had a a depositors shortly after the expiration of the three months required Quot the indictment of the president 01 the institution a continues the superintendent Quot and his confession of guilt will doubtless result in a just enforcement of the provisions of the penal the Carnegie Trust company which took Over in january is Soso being liquidated and a dividend is expected to be paid As soon As the Law will per Nithe superintendent Points out that although the total resources of the Trust companies of the state As of Jam exceed those of Jan. 1, 1909, by $37,000,000, Thev were $88.000,000 less than for the first Dey of 1910, at which time the total was the greatest in the history of these institutions. Quot further comparison a a say tha report a a shows $122.000,000 less Loans than Ware outstanding a year ago a condition which appears to reflect a conservative retrenchment of commercial Enterprise. The inactivity of the Market for Senor cities is also evidenced by a Small shrinkage of the surplus computed on Market value. However the total capital of the Trust companies of the state was increased $2000,-000 the total deposits reported exceed thobe of two years ago.
