Triangle Club of Princeton and
WASHINGTON. April 23. (Special
correspondence.) The last week
In April was started and closed,
tocially, by amateur college plays, the
two having the reputation of being the
best In the country the Triangle Club
of Princeton and the Mask and Wig
Club of the University of Pennsyl
vania. The scenic effects' of each were
fine, and the boys were as good actors
as many professionals, while their
high-heeled, daintily shod feet were
the despair of their sex, and perhaps
the envy of some of the opposite sex.
After the plays there were supper
parties without number, and rare was
the girl not invited to at least one of
them to "meet the heroes of the even

President and Mrs. Roosevelt, Mrs.
Donald McLean, the newly re-elected
president-general of the Daughters of
the American Revolution; Mr. and Mrs.
Perry Belmont, and Miss Pujo, daugh
ter of Representative Pujo, of Louisi
ana. On Tuesday Mrs. Roosevelt gave her
first large affair since the beginning
of Lent, Illness In the family having
caused a complete change In the White
House calendar for the post-Easter
season. The guests on this occasion
were entertained with music and were
invited for nine-thirty, or one hour
earlier than for similar events in the
Winter. The entire lower floor was
thrown open, brilliantly lighted and
simply decorated with blossoms pe
culiarly appropriate to the season.
Through the half-open windows was
wafted the perfume of hundreds of
hyacinths blooming on the terrace and

VETOES BRIDGE ORDINANCE
MAYOR LANE THINKS MONEY
CAN BE SAVED.
Requests Council to Allow Specifica
tions to Remain Open for Bid
ders to Submit Plans.
Mayor Lane yesterday vetoed the or
Sinance authorizing the construction of
l reinforced concrete bridge across Sul
livan's Gulch, on Twenty-eighth street.
The Mayor is not opposed to the build
ing of the bridge, but objects to cer
tain provisions of the ordinance. If
the Council will pan another ordinance
not providing that the specifications be
prepared by the City Engineer he be
lieves that several thousand dollars
trill be -saved the city. The structure
Is estimated to cost about $80,000.
Mayor Lane's veto message will be
jubmltted to the Council Wednesday
Ifternoon. The Council is determined
(o build the Twenty-eighth-street
irldge. and upon Wednesday will either
pass the ordinance over the Mayor's
veto or order that another one be pre
pared. . His rrfessage. in part, follows:
"To the Honorable City Council I
herewith return ordinance No. 16,427,
"This Is an ordinance which author
izes the Executive Board to advertise
for and receive proposals for the con
utructlon of a reinforced concrete
bridge on Kant Twenty-eighth street.
"It is provided in this ordinance that
aid bridge shall be constructed in ac
rordanee with the plans and specifica
tions prepared by the City Engineer
ind now upon file In the office of the
"In relation to this matter, I have
to say that I am reliably informed
that a saving of several thousand dol
lars In the cost Of the construction
of this bridge could be made, xand
equally as good, if not a better bridge
could be constructed at a much lower
cost, if the specifications were left
open, allowing bids to be received upon
plans submitted by the bidder for the
same. Being assured that an alter
native clause in an ordinance provid
ing for such bridge to that effect
would make a material reduction in
the cost of this expensive structure
without impairing either the beauty,
strength or life of the same, I have
deemed it best to. return the ordinance
to you with the request for your fur

County Jail are drawing to a close, and

that other persons are the murderers
of Oscar Lundgren, and that he was of
the belief that both of the men now
in custody had been wrongly convict

Judge Fraser yesterday that another

SORTING MAIL ON TRAINS
(Continued From Pajre 3S,
Thus: it will be seen that the service in
the last 20 years has practically doubled
itself every 10 years.
Mortality In Wrecks.
The occupation of the railway postal
clerk Is most dangerous. It is said on the
best authority that the percentage of
mail clerks annually killed and wounded
in the service is greater than that of the
United States Army in the Mexican War
and several times greater than, that of
the Spanish-American War. During the
last year there were 328 wrecks in which
mail clerks figured. The mail cars are
usually run directly behind the engine
and. when there is a wreck, the fire from
the engine is usually communicated to
these cars, with the result that many
clerks and much valuable mall are In
Another cause that adds to the danger
of the mail car is the use of gas and oil
as a lighting .agent. The moment there
is a wreck, if oil be used for light, the
contents of tho lamps are strewn' over
the wreckage of the - mail car, and the
first spark starts a fire. In tho case of
gas. the pipes leading to the storage
tanks are usually broken, with tne re
sult that there is an explosion, which
makes It even more dangerous than oil
Electricity as a lighting n agent would
overcome all this, and steel cars which
could not be smashed would also be a
great protection to the clerks.
Steel Cars for Safety.
There are perhaps more than 100 all-
steel cars now building. The Harriraan
lines have 36 under contract. The Penn
sylvania has a large number and other
roads have cars under construction. The
first all-steel postal car was built by the
Erie and was exhibited two years ago in
Washington. This car was in a wreck
last year, and. though it took & somer
sault down a steep embankment while
the train was running at & high rate of
speed, it came out none the worse for the
experience and all of the clerks escaped
The railway postal clerks have two or
ganizations. The principal one is the
Railway Mail Association, with a mem
bership of 11,000. This association is a
fraternal, beneficial organization. It has
a paper of its own, the Railway Post
Office, whose editor, George A. Wood, of
Portsmouth. N. H., is also secretary and
treasurer of the association. It was
through him that the scope of the organi
zation was so broadened as to make it
considered by the department a valuable
adjunct to the railway mail service in the
solution of the many problems that arise
in the continual effort to better the serv
ice. Mr. Wood has been re-elected to hla
office nine successive times.
Father of Railway Mall.
Even to this day there are rival claims
as to who originated the postal car serv
ice. The friends of the late W. A. Davis,
assistant postmaster at St. Joseph, Mo.,
claim that he was the originator of the
idea, but practically all the official testi
mony gives the credit to George B. Arm
strong, at the time assistant postmaster
at Chicago and afterward superintendent
of the Railway Mall Service. Necessity
has ever been the1 mother of Invention
and it was necessity that led Mr. Arm
strong to think out the postoffice on
wheels.- He had charge of distributing
the mail to the various railroads diverging
from Chicago and found his office
swamped with the work. This led. him to
tell the postmaster that, instead of hav
ing the mail distributed in central post-
