Tho Comptroller tcstlllfd thnt the first budpet 'of Greater New York, In 1899, was $88,510,727: that of 190fi was JUS,6:0,35:, and that of 1315 was $168. 000,000. Tho btldnot for 1J16 Is $212. 000,000. "What ban been thy growth of mr population lneo ISM?" asked Scnnior Urown. "Thirty-nine per ecu ," lcplled th Comptroller. "And how much has Hie City Hud Ret crown In that time."?" "ItouBhly, 104 per cant.," sale! the Comptroller. -Mr. frcnderB-nst explained that tho budjret simply reflects tho public np- prcclutlon of tho city's iiecessltlra. In tho lam fifteen yearn many tilings havo been undertaknit by tho city government which hitherto havo been left to private enterprise, ho uald. "I personally bcllovo wo havo conn too far." tlin Comptroller coaitltturd "though If If had not been for tho depreciation In real estoto timing tho last five ye.irn a dcpri'nilon fctl In nil our cltlcstlio citizen of Now York would havo regarded the Imd get with equanimity. Now It la for the peoplo lo ay whether tho new activities shall bo abandonod or new sources of revenuo found." Q. Jlas taxation reached s high a rate as It can stand? A. I don't think It has gono too high. It can nafcly go higher. I think It will go higher. Uy 1919, I think, wc Bhalt havo tt budget of ,230,000,000 or $235,000100.

Q. Isn't It almost impossible to focuji attention on nny amount under $100; 000? A. On tho contrary, wo oro hy- nererltltal In inspecting items of theso expenditures. Q. Well, why waa It tiocessary on April 3, 1914, to make titty now op polntmcnts to olllco at 1,500 a year oploco on money transferred from the advertising to the contlngenci ac count? A. I'll look It up ana let you know. Hhcriff and ex-As"mblyman Alfred 17, Smith said something ahout homo rule as a mentis of helping Nor York to cconomlne. "Whoever," protested Senator Urown. "beglnK a discussion of homo rule embarks on an uncharted 30a without compass or rudder." Never theless Al Smith would not bo de nled. "A great deal of our dimculty could bo overcome," ho snld, 'It we could get tho s.imo kind of a charter that cities of tho second class have. You never see In Albany a mcastiro to amend the charier of Syracuse or Rochester. "We'ro perfectly willing to class New York as a second class city any time you ask for It." retorted tho Senator. "Tho Legislature has never amended tho New York charter ex cept upon suggestion of New York 1 7jr y member.." "Ito!" laughed Sheriff At Smith. " 111 show you tho minutes of tho l-tglsliitlvo Committee of Itcvlxlon of the City of New York Charter. See how many New Yorkers wero on It. What dbl It do?

AlillANY. Jan. 12. A reprieve of nearly five weeks was given by (lov. Wlillnuin to-day to llan.i Schmidt, formerly a priest In New York, whoso execution for the murder of Anna Atiniueller was set for Friday of this week at King Sing. The reprieve stays execution until tho week be ginning l'cb. 14 in order that Hchmldt's lawyers may have an opportunity to establish their contention thnt the uvidenco of physicians would show that .Miss Aumuollcr's death resulted from an Illegal operation. Tiie court of Appeals recently de nied a new trial, holding the evidence concerning tho operation was not newly discovered. Tho court said: Tho defendants tale sunn les a plausible explanation of Homo of thn mysteries flf this tragedy. In an approprlto proceeding It would merit carnost scrutiny. Wc do not doubt that such scrutiny will bo given to it and that right will he done, if, thereafter, an appeal for clomency is tnndo to tho Executive." The Governor said to-day: "In light of tho opinion of the court It seems but fair that counsel for Schmidt should be able to present this phaso of the matter for deter mination.''
