Many of the leases provide for mnent( mefflc!ency nnd Its gmft. idviuio of those now nald "What do you think would solvo the waterfront problem and bring Into tho city treasury a proper return for tbe money Inveated?" Mr. Mclntyro was asked. "Loom evev oler utter public let ting;" bo replied. "In that way only of which there Is more than ever In the city's history, Is due entirely to tho fact that the total city vote Is, say 6S0.000, of wlioni, only liG.Obf) nri'nctunt taxpayers. Onu hundred thouinnd are city employees nnd special recipients of Government extravagance: IjO.OOO nro mj busy rhnalng the nlmlKht dollar that they save neuner mo lime nor inciina would tbo City of New York get a. . tlon t0 pa. th0 .nBlteat attention to fair Idea of Just what Its waterfront government or Its cost: the balance, or omo zoo.uou, nre recipient or aoiisr chnrlty, dollar social uplift or dollar eeclal service In some form or another nroDerty and plera aro worth. Hlnce tho early flays or inn unynor Administration Comptroller Prendcr- gaat has fought for the sealed bid pro posal plan of leasing tiocK property. In practically every Instance wlicro dook property Is to be leased there Is more than ono parson or concorn seen Inir It. Kn nne knows the value of a pier bettor than a privnto concern dc-1 slrous of renting It from tho city. Therefore, the city not only obtains n good nppralsal of tho property's worth I from open bidding but gets a higher I revenue than It would wero the prop-1 erty without competitive bidding. ' "Thoso who do not ravor the onon ! bidding say It would not bo fair In I some Instances. If a big trunk lino railroad whoso pier entrance to the city at a certain point would be a distinct commercial advnntagu .wcro shut out by a smaller concern bidding higher, tho city would be the loser, argue the opponents of tho open bidding. COMPETITIVE BIDDING WOULD CLEAR UP SITUATION. Let us admit that there nre In stance whero the leasing of prop erty to certain steamship or rail road companies would prove a com mercial gain to tho city. Even In the face of such a condition I contend that the city ought to have competi tive bidding. If for no other reason than to determine a marketable value for tho proporty concerned, "Huppoae mere were several Did der for a certain pier. Tbo city could reserve the right to exercise Its discretion In the granting of the lease. In other words, the interests of the port could be considered equal ly well after the market value of tho pier property lum been learned through bidding, as before." Mr. Mclntym explained how tbe City of New York happens to be los ing 8 per cent, a year on the I2J.000, 000 Chelsea Investment. Ho aald: "The big steamship companies now occupying the Cholsea pier property had previously been Installed on old fashioned piers, for which they did not pay a very high rental. Although the new plera were many times liner than the old ones, the steamship peo ple couldn't see their way clear to pay an Increase commensurate with the amount of money Invested in thn new piers. There were whispers, rumors and Intimations that tho bljr ateamshlp companies were quite pro voked art tbe lda of paying high rentals nnd wore getting ready to move over to Iloboken or up to Bos ton. "The City Administration was so Impressed by these rumors and veiled threats that n conference on nrbltra tlon was arranged. Tho Chamber of Commerce had a hnnd In the arbi trating. The arbitrators decided that It would he qulto n calamity If the big steamship companlos moved awn v. Ah a result they weren't compelled to pay ft rental which nrould have re turned the city a prralit on Ita Invest ment. So you nee New York City Is paying 5 per cent, on the borrowed 123,000,000 for the Chelsea Improve ment and getting in return about 2 per cent." NO WAY NOW OF DETERMINING THE PROPERTY'S VALUE. Mr. Mclntyro In hJs report to Comp troller I'rendergaat complairui that tho Individual valuo of water front prop erty Is not given In the Dock Depart ment reporta. Ho refers, among oth ers, to tho properties loased to prlvato concerns. "We Jack, therefore, the very foun dation upon which to figure a proper SaueUl ratura," aajri the report.
