to have assurances that the Ways and Meeos Com?
mittee will report favorably upon the bills which
propose to repeal t he statutes that require National
and other banks to pay taxes upon capital and de?
posits, and which impose s 2 cent bank check stamp.
The sub-committee to which thissiihject wat referred
is compose! of Messrs. Carlisle, chairman, Morrison,
of Illinois, Kelley, Conger and Donnell. Ol these it
is said that all except M trrison favor tbe bills. Of

there are certainly eight, constituting a majority,
who favor the bills. Ibes-e eight are said to be

The meeting of tbe Piirk CoiiimiaMoners yesterday
was marked by tbe subdued manner with which tba
bnsineiis was for thu most part disposetl of. Al
11, ur li on many questions there was du??
Kferiueiit, there was little show of tem**
per. After some routine business it
was resolved, on morion of Mr. Lane, that sll of
Ike CominisaaoaaOB should hate power to sign per?
mits and requisitions until Ibe next meeting of the
Board, aud then a motion was made to adjourn.
CoetatteBiaeMB Oreen, however, said that the matter
of reducing expenses, for which the meeting had
been called, should bc tn ken np, and the motion was
withdrawn. Cominis*.oners Wales snd Laue, who
yv re appointed on tlie Investigating Committee,
said they were not ready to report.
A communication from the Board of Estimate
and Apportionment, requiring a statement of tba
ex|M-nses of the department for 1 fe80 and an esti?
mate of the expenditures for 1*81, was presented.
Mr. Wales sod tbat the estimate wbled had .>een
mu.le appeared to him too titree, and tic thought
areal cure should he taken in the matter. Ho had
undon'i od thar an opposition was forming io treat
rxnenaan,and he .-..ts g nd that the departrnent hurl

Commissioner Green, who had before made some
reference to the removal of UnpQTIBteoOoal Hal?
loran, saul that the people were liberal, but they
didn't want a lot of vagal-rmd-. in the department,
doini* milhun*. He then offered a resolution to 00
iin,ve (superintendent BalleffSB from his position.
"This proposition bringa us down to business,"
an ni Mr. Wales. "Whetber the fault is with Mr.
ll Horan or not, Central I'atk is in a disgraceful
condition. I aili constantly seeing timur, sroiiiu on

to Bi fnt| fl nat nltl for the had condition of tba (In rea
ami walk*, I will bo in favor of removing bim."
lt was also urged hy Mr. Wales that it should be
ascertained if this removal would be attended with
any legal difficulties; but Mr. Green said that any
amount of talk about reform would imf result in
anytbioo- He know of no other way to inform thaa
lota?oyo aaeleaa and incompetent meti, and to cul
down salaries, lin* r-Molution wat adopted.
Commissioner Groan made a motion to remove
Julina F. Munch wit? Superintending Architect.
