The qew Commissioners h.iv- already glvefi prool
of their Intention to Introduce refonna and purlf>
the servl-e in many needed ways. City works
Commissioner White began carly to wield the axt
and has ilamiased a largi number "f employee bta
the gi iiaafj that Ihelr services were no longer need
e<!. Tin- would appear to mean that the vacanclet*
thus created will not be filled, and ls, io far, a In
dicati'.n that under the Democratic Comml
the money of Ihe cky was being thrown away.

In a businesslike way. One thing he made entire!)

gaeenbers of the for ?? One officer wh.nfess? i : ?
having taken t? ? drinks if brandy was fined thirty
?"ays- pay Evidently there ia going to be strict
discipline In ihe police force for tl'- next two years.
Park Commissioner Hauler ilk also found a con?
siderable number f auperfiuous employes on Ins
payroll-* and haa been weeding them out.
The exhii>i,!"*i which McKane made of himself
en th<? -jritnc. a-stand mus! hat ?? been far fr un sall -
factory to hil frlen la thai ls, to the Intelligent men
who arc standing by him. of course In the oyi? of
Ms Ignoranl followers la Gravesend ti" can 'l" no
wrong, and he is nil! a hero and a much Injured
man. They srlll think thi same ifter h? is c,.n
vic-ted. .is ho sei ms very likely to be. In fnct,
nothing cnn save him except Ihe failure of one or
two jurors to agree with their fellows There are
rumors nhroad thal two of tbe Jurymen ar.' "all
right'' ns far na McKane is concerned. Probably
thia ts aserely bluff*, at all events, there is n.i evi?
dence Sf SUC* .i st.it^ of things, and lt is certain
that extrema- entre was taken In selecting the |ury.
McKane's denials, roitradlctlona and Inconsistencies
cannot but have proaluced a lecldedly unfavorable
Impression on Intelligent and fair-minded Jurors.
One man who has been In court during part of the
trial tells m.- that his tirsi Impr-selon <>f the Jun
was r.'it favorable, bul on 1 oking at lt closer he
became convinced thal lt was a good jury aid
would di its duty fearlessly and honestly.
The prospects a>r the enactment of the "Oreater
"New-York" bill seem to be excellent after the irge
majority by which i: was i lased in the Assembly.
The proposed ,-.,111 di la tlon would make a New-York
as broad as it ls long. The . st renie length of the city
?orth and south now li about fifteen miles; ti;- ex
tenslon of its linn's In ac irdance with the pro
T-donS of tho pending bill would carry It sixteen
miles to tho eastward, bul al thc same time would
carry its southern extremity to tbe lowest p lint
of staten Intend, which la nearly twenty miles from
the rity Hall. On Long Island, Far Rockaway,
Cretvlmoor. Hay- 1 ' and Whitestone would be in?
cluded A** has peen said before, this bill merely
provides for the ? 'te of the 1.pie Interested ..ti
the 'iiiea:i..n of union with Now Y..rk. leaving the
ectua! question of consolidation to 1>" consl I
and decided later. Such a measure ls entirely
reasonable Of course there is a huge difference
between the union of New-York and Brooklyn and
the makin-*- of a great municipality covering 31,
square miles. Coi r* lldatlon by wholesale has little
to commend lt, bul there can be no rational ob?
jection to the contemplated vote.
Meantime the agitation for consolidation cn a
?maller scale will continue Hills have been in'.r.
dneed providing for the annexation of the town of
Ftetboab to Brooklyn, in accordance arith tbe wteh
of a good macy of the residents of thal pleasant
euburh. it is mt the first atti mpt by any means
to bring about this result, but heretofore the inter?
ests of the tocal politicians In the town hiv-* I* en
too strong t'1 be overcome, With a Republican
Legislature this difficulty win b-> materially reduce 1.
In all probability New-Utrecht will follow in no long
time?In fact, a hill f.ar Its annexation has Laen
brought forward?and then there srlll i>e univ th >
towns of Flatlands and Gravesend left Thnt '.
will be thouirlit necessary to maintain a full coun?
ty government in addition tai the c;t>- government
for the benefit of two townships is most Improba
ble, and so whether Flatlands anal Gravesend nra?
anxious for annexation or not, tha-y an- likely ta.
be annexeal; and thia without reference to tin
larger rons, .li Lit ion scheme which is more or less
talked of. _
The Republican members of tho Hoard of Super
visors very properly took the I iii by the hom in
seating Frodeil k Lindo aa tbe representative of
the K.g-hth "Ward ar th'ir meeting on Monday. The
refusal of Clerk Tarred to Obey the order aif the
Bnperrloor-at-Large brought about a condition "f
things strikingly similar to that tn th? Btate Sen?
ate when Lieutenant-Governor Sheehan undertook
to run thingr. to suit himself and Senator Six:.in
was force'l to call the roii. The Demociatlc Super
visors an'l their ascents have been taking lessens
from both Trent.-n and Albany, but the lt.. pul,il?
eane have been too smart for them. The law In re
.spect to the liding of vacancies in the Board ls of
the "democrat*' own devising: lt provides that
such "ra rna rial shall i>- filled >.- th? Hoard of
Aldermen. Of course al Ihe time >f its enactment
the Democratic leaders who secured its passage
had no idea that the Republicans would ever gain
control of the ('??mtn.-ti Council. The vacancy iii
the Kighth Ward wai caused by the i]<.;lih of Su?
pervisor Btlcksvers a few days before the hut elec?
tion. lt might io prompt action have been iiii.a
at that eleen,.n, bul li aaa not. Then the Demo?
crat's Board of Aldermen elected Kehoe to the
place, and .inst before Ihe end 01 the year he re
signed and was re-elected. Thu second election
haa been held by Judge Cullen ii be Invalid To
fill the existing vacancy the new Board of Uder
men (Republican) chose Mr. Lind.'. Th- law haa
been carried "ut, there la no vacancy and conse?
quently n.i occasion for a special election, .1 Gov?
ernor Flower ordered. The Democrats have at
tempted to nuke a great deal of the alleged fact
that Attorney-General Hancock advised th- Gk>v
ernor that the calling of a special election was the
lawtul and proper thing to da Hut Mr. Hancock';
emphatic deni.il that be nive any such advil.- left
them without anything .0 lean on in that respeel
Mayor Schieren has taken a course th.it will win
universal approval in endeavoring to r> luce the
amount which the city paye for electric t''- ?
lights. The Board of Aldermen lins rejected all
the bids put in by the electric companies. This ls a
step toward a reform of real importance. The
furnishing of lights for the city hts heretofore
been a sourc- of Immense profit to the companies,
snd it ls ;i notortoua fa<" that Brooklyn pays a
good deal more for thia service than many
other cities. What the Mayor intends 1.. secure is
a redua-tion .af M per cenl In the cost of electric
lights. There ls no doubt thal the companlee can
?till make a large prof!) al the proposed figure
Mr. Bchleren has i,.,.k.-d into the matter carefully
and surprised the representatives .>f the comnanl 1
who cal leal on him In the course of the wed; by his
knowledge ol the cost of electric lighting Hither?
to certain politicians connected with the McLaugh?
lin Ring have had a large Interest In Increasing
the profits of ti..- companies, and hence all efforts
to reduce the cost of this service hm.- been in
