The work of building the Brooklyn station ls I

While the Hrooklyn Elevated road will actually

TIIE FLATEUSII-AVE. PLAN.
MAT'iR PCBIBRKJ- LOOKIXQ POA DKFINITK IN
rORMATIOM AS TO THK GOBS OF
Considerable interest ls felt In the revival of the
plan te extend Flatbush-ave. to th* Brooklyn end
of the Mri l|e, ^nd at the Mayors office efforts are
being put forth ro And any trustworthy data which
mny be In exbtenee bearing upon the cost of the
undertaking. The head of one of tbe principal city
department, wh-n asked for his opinion on the
"It would anqneetlonably bo a Bplendld thing for
the city, proi-ided lt did not cost toe much I h-.iv
not given the matter any serial attention, but it
seems to me thal that s?ctb,n of the city has- Im?
proved rather l.-ss than any other tn the last donen
years. I have M official Information on ttie sub?
ject, but lt ls easy for any one who uses bis eyes
to see that the same old buildings, most of them
comparatively cheap, and some ,-f them tumble?
down, are still there, lo lt would seem as If the
Improvement woul,i COS! DO in ,re now than when
lt was advocated by Mayor Low. Whether tiie city
ls In a position to undertake lt now I am not pre?
pared to say. bot that il is u good thing in itself
no one can deny."
It appears that aa long ago as 1882 an attempt
wa* made to organise a pr.vate company to undi i
take the Improvement. Tn.- pian was lo buy a atrip
of land .'.PO feet wide and to give U rf) feet of lt to
the city for a Street, on the condition that the dry
would open, grade and pave lt. This would leave
the company Mi f.-.-t on each side, which would
probably have .nabled :t to make an , xceedlngli
profitable investment. A public Improvement on
such a basis would be a novelty her,-, but the i -
thing ts sabl to have beea done successfully in
?omi" foreign dries. A bill incorporating the com?
pany was drawn, and pessed oas branch of the
Legislature. Mayor Low, however, wa.s of the
opinion that the work. If don- at all, should be
done by the city In tbe regular way, and on ac?
count of his opposition the lull failed to become a
.aw. The norene np IT..-J % map at the time In the
jft.ee of the City Clark, showing thar th- cos! >f
the property would not exceed a million snd a quar?
ter. At th- rity Clerk's office it was said OH
Thursday that no trace of tho map could bo foun I
Mayor Bchleren is anxious to get all the light ob?
tainable on the cost of the talked-of extension,
which he thinks would ho of great advantage to
the city. The Improvement would no doubt pav for
Itaelf indirectly In the Increased valuations to be
placed on a large amount of propertv In case lt
were carried through; still a considerable immediate
outlay would be required, and tho present financial
condition of the city ls such as to compel caution
In reference to any project that calla for tbe ex?
penditure of moneir.

POLITICAL lilli ET IS REOOELTN.
noss M'M'-iiHi.iS' RETIRES FiroM Tv-i'.i-nr-*-.
A'-lIN PROMPT CONFIRMATION Og
"Boss" McLaughlin has gone to Oreenport, L T.
for hts summer vacation, and simultaneously with
his departure the snnouncement ls ma le that li?
lias retired from politics this time permanently.
It i> an old. familiar announcement, Mc?
Laughlin has not retired permanently from
polRIca as often as a certain Singer has
made h-r positively last appearance, bul !r has
be-n gone so many limes thai tbe people of Brook*
I lyn merely sm!!- every lime the "retirement act" la
: gone through, and Bay to themselves that Mc
| Laughlin will continue to rule things from hie
| throne in the auction shop In the same old way.
I McLaughlin's career has \?.,.u g remarkable one lg
I many respects. No other political ? > isa luis ever
I ruled his .--ubjects so ab ilutel; ,,r bo long. Every
| time the Democratic party in Brooklyn surr-rs de.
feel he goos through th- form of ritirln.;; then,
, doubtless, all tbe other Democratic leaders see the
; necessity of a srrong, firm hand al the helm, and
they "prevail npon" bim to resume the leadership,
The defeat last fall was the most crushing M ?
1 Leughltn has ever experienced, bu! In sp'.!,- .,f lt he
bas continued to be a power In the party. .S. true
| is this thai a m.-iiib-t ,,: th- ll,ctr l ,.r IM, ??.,,
sal,l to the wrlt-r not long ag-, this was before th
recent election in the board thal :he Democrats did
no! dare to vote for a Janitor wlthoul consulting
tue Boss. McLaughlin's "retirements iran politics
permanently" must bs construed In a Pickwickian
sense every time.
It ls surprising that any well Infirmed Brooklyn
Paper should assort, as mie dil th- other bu. that
Surveyor McGuire's chanc-i ?t confirmation by rhe
Benate Were rather slim, The precedent set in the
pr^mpi confirmation of ex-Poilce Commission' r
Hayden as I'niled Stales Marshal was sufficient to
show that there would be comparatively little delay
in the case of another member of Mayor Boody'i
cabinet. That was the result, no opposition
manifested in the Senate. Ii is different, however
with the mugwumplsh Healy and Bennett. Th- con?
firmation of Mr. McGuire Ensures to Brooklyn one
of the Important places in the customs service of
tho oort of New-"tork. It ls true that some years
ago Mr McGuire "kicked over the traces" when he
failed to secure a nomination for a Judgeahlp which
he greatly desired, but afterward he became an
obedient and dutiful follower of the magnate who
bas been termed the "Duke of Brooklyn."
