from E. If. Harrlman, delivered by J.
C. Stubbs, his personal director of nT.I
Ilurriman lines, made at yesterday
morning's session of the Trans-Mississippi
congress, is ono of tbo most sensa
tional events in tbo history of that or
ganization. Harriman's message came llko a
He told the Trans-Mississippi con
gress, in effect, that if it did not work
to prevent the enactment of legislation
which had a tendency to discourage the
confideneo of the money markets in
railroads as investments, not a milo of
track in Harrlman territory would bo
built or improved.
Stubbs compared the great undertak
ings of tho United States government
with those of Harrlman, and predicted
regretfully as n notable exnmplo that

OPPOSE PARCELS POST.
Trnns-Misslsilppi Congress! Favors
Ship Subsidy, However.
San Francisco, Oct. 0. Assembling
after half a day of recreation, the del
cgates to the nineteenth session of the
Trans-Mississippi Commercial con
gress devoted yesterday afternoon and
evening to practical addresses on the
development of the West and brief
speeches explanatory of resolutions
under consideration by the various
committees. Hereafter one half of
each day Is to be taken up by enter
tainment provided by the commercial
bodies of San Francisco and of the
1200 delegates who are registered as
attending the congress, fully one-third
participated yesterday in an excursion
by steamer to many points of interest
on the bay.
A new flood of resolutions deluged
the secretary's desk after the dele
gates returned. Hccausc of the ex
tended debates that have occurred in
the sessions of the committee on reso
lutions, it is probable that the action
upon many of the important measures
lor winch approval lias been asked
will be retarded.
The committee has decided to re
commend. in modified form, the reso
lution urging the necessity of provid
ing for a rejuvenated merchant ma
rine, and after a bitter debate of sev
eral hours, determined to report ad
versely the resolution commending the
attitude of Postmaster General Meyer
on the subject of a parcels post. The
latter topic is expected to furnish the
basis of a lively contest on the floor
of the congress.

cide on 300 Feet.
New York, Oct. 0. The committee
on public buildings of the board of
aldermen has announced a public hear
ing on the proposal to limit the height
of all buildings in New York. If the

will have the final decision.
It is proposed to limit the height of
buildings to 300 feet, with the excep
tion of buildings that front on a park,
square or plaza, for which the limit
is proposed at 330 feet.
The proposition was made by the
building code revision committee,
which nude its reports after investi
gating the width of the streets in the

markets, refrigerator plants, stables,

Office buildings, grain elevators and

ings to be allowed to rite higher.
