1 0 THE strain put upon the Public Service Commission of this
district by its discredited but defiant Chairman is added the
weight of Commissioner Williams's extraordinary alliance with
tho Kings County Lighting Company to keep residents of South
Brooklyn from enjoying the benefits of an 80-ccnt gas rate.
How much of this sort of thing can tho Public Service Commis
sion stand before the people of tho State lose faith in the law that I
established the Commission and arc ready to see it thrown on tho junk
heap of abandoned hopes?
Here is on admirably conceived power created to protect the
'public from injustice at the hands of corporations. Every aid the
State con furnish in tho shape of money and efficient machinery goes
with this power. All it needs to work it is able, honest men who will
faithfully serve the public that trusts them.
New York lias not lost all such. It can still find men fit to bo
' Tublic Service Commissioners who will slay fit after they have entered
upon their duties. .Mr. McCrII and his kind are not born to be Public
Service Commissioner, nor is there any reason why the type should
be perpetuated, in the office.
There is no popular delusion on this point. Nor can any Gov
pernor create one.
PROOF OF PROSPERITY.
JTT HERE is good ground for hope that the city's problem of the
I unemployed may come down this winter to a plain job of hand-
ling those who won't work.
Charity organizations report a progressive falling off in the num
ber of applicants for aid. The average number applying daily at the
Municipal Lodgiug House during October, according to W. A. Whiting,
who' is in charge there, was about 400 as against 750 for the same
month of 1014. A list of ten churches in the poorer sections of Man
hattan and Brooklyn report that appeals for help arc from 15 to 50
,pcr cent, less than at this time last year. The Bowery missions and
the Salvalion Army soy they too arc caring for fewer people.
It is not hard to see what has happened. Doubts and fears that
izcd upon this country last fall, after the outbreak of the war
n Europe, have been dispelled. Trade and industry have been push
ing ahead until now the calamity howlers find hardly anybody with
