Stock Exchange Seats fall In Value;
The Vanderbilt Dinner to Prince

Crew of the Prince's Yacht.
New York, March 8. Now York
has always been a little jealousy of
Chicago in the matter of skyscrapers,
anil of Lit e years tho "rivalry between
architects of Gotham and the Windy
City has been unusually interesting.
It is therefore disappointing to many
of the builders of tall office build
ings of New York that the aldermen
of the city sfiould commence a war
against sky scrapers almost at the
very time when Chicago aldermen
have decided to abolish the law regu
lating the, height of buildings. In
future the structures erected in this
city will be limited to 200 feet. There
are now many buildings that tower
more than 100 feet above this figure.
A bill introduced into the legislature
a few years ago, having the same ob
ject in view, was beaten. The board
of trade and transportation is behind
the present move. Under the new
city charter the board of aldermen
can regulate the height of buildings
and the 'officials are taking advant
age of their power to put in force a
law which is highly favored by many
residents of the metropolis.
Stock Exchange Seats.
iPrices of seats of the New York
stock exchange are becoming cheap
er. The last sold at $70,000, a drop
of $10,000 from the previous sale.
This is due, it is said ,to the inactiv
ity of the market and the absence of
public interest in stock exchange
matters. 'Nevertheless, $70,000 is a
good sum and it will take a good
boom to run the price again to $80,-
'Dinner to the Prince.
One of the most Important Incl
dents connected with the visit of
Prince Henry of Prussia is the dinner
which is to bo given to his royal
Highness on tomorrow night by
young Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt. It
will be the only unofficial function
which .the prince will attend and na
turally New York society is at the
white heat of excitement over the
event. The affair is all the more in
teresting for the' reason that the
friends of Alfred Vanderbilt, who in
herited the bulk of his late father'a
fortune, say that since the family is
to be so highly honored his should be
the privilege of entertaining the royal
visitor since he is the acknowledged
head of the house. It will be remem
bered that Cornelius Vanderbilt was
practically disinherited by his father
a few years before the latter's death
because he contracted a marriage
displeasing to that party. The list
of guests bidden to the event Is very
exclusive and William K. Vander
bilt, who married Miss Virgina Fair,
of California is the only one of the
Vanderbilts whose name appears
among the list of invited ones.
Six millions of dollars will be dis
tributed to the shareholders of lead
ing corporations during the month,
this being about $5,000,000 in excess
of . the March payments of other
years. Two corporations alone will
pay $25,000,000 and these are the
Standard Oil company and the United
States Steel corporation. These two
companies are the only two Indus
trial that will distribute more than
,$1,000,000. Dividends for $G0,000;O00
for March compares with $133,000,000
distributed during January, which Is
the principal month of the year for
Interest and dividend payments.
ARMY OFFICER ON
Felt When he was Fighting them that
He was Contending Against Wo
men; Filipinos are Excedingly
Washington, March S. General
Hughes In his testimony before the
Philippine commission this morning
said, referring to the out break of
hostilities between tho Americans
a, id Aguinaldo's forces, that the first
shot was fired by the Ai-un-icnus.
Answering the question as to the
cause of the greater percentage of
killed and wounded on tho Filipino's
side, he said he always felt when ho
was fighting them as though he was
striking a woman, that they did not
know the first thing about fighting
and they could not hit a stack of
barns with a rlflo, that it was super
stition more than bravery that caus
ed them to otartd their Jiui and
that they wore badges and charms,
which, they fully believed would pro
tect them from death.
