WIIY GAMBLING HOUSES FLOURISH. REASONS GIVEN BY THE POLICK FOR NOT MOLEST? ING THEM. The Police Commi-ssioucrs received from Mayor Ellson on April 3 the following letter, written lo him by a person whose name he did not disclose bnt whom he referred to as "arespectab le citizen": Are you aware ihat there are a number of gambling bella or faro tanka in lull operation daily In deilance of the plain law* against gambling, ant! some of them almost within the shadow of the halls of Justice 1 These places are well known to the police authorities, yet they Gio nothing towards suppressing them. They are bringing ruin lo I housands of our young men and caus? ing misery among otherwise happy homes. A* a citizen I call upon you to take some acimn in the roalter. Tho following are the more prominent ones: Day caro**: Nos. 1 and 12 Ann-st. (second flnor), 0Park-place, 3 and 8 Barelsy-st.. 1JS9 Fultou-st. Night finns*: Nos. 818 Broadway, 39 Weat Twentv-utntn-st., 08 We-?t Twenty eight li-st., 60 West Thlrtleth-st. There are many others, all well known to thc police. I appeal to vou, in the name of humanity and the law, to do something tn help suppress these place". Tbe Commissioners referred the lotier to Super? intendent Walling. He has sent an answer, of Wbich Hie following is the most important part: I respectfully etate that Nos. 159 Fultonst. and CH West Twenly-eifhth-st. are reported to me as not berna f ambling houses. The other places mentioned n the communication are reported to be gambling bouses. It ls stated in the comminiica tlon to the Mavor that the police authorities "do nothing to suppress these places." This is neil BO, as will toe aeen by tho acoo*npatit lng reports from the captains Of the proclncts lu which the placs mentioned aro located I furiher stute that I have issued war rents for every reputel gambling houae in this city, directing BeotalM of police to enter euch bouses and arrest all pcre-ons found viol o' Ing tho law. In executing these warrants lt WSS necessary ts manv cases to break open the (loora to gain admission. Many of these places have been entered from lime tu time hythe police, hut the el..ore ure so halted sun guard? ed Ihat ilicv could never succeed ls catching any person violating the law. A surveillance, ie kept upou these places and every effort used to suppress them. Th.* warrants mentioned by Mr. Walling mav be issued under section 41, chapter 409, ot thc laws of 186-1. winch state that ii any policeman shall re? port ni writing that there, arc ginni mound-to be? lieve Ihat any bouses ar need for gambling pur? poses, i* inuv be lawful for ths Supennteiide n! lo authorize members of Ihe force lo euler the houses and arrest persons foun 1 vlolalin? the law. For several Sears thc seclion hasbeen practically a demi lelter. Some e.f the accompanying reports of cap? tains arc interesting as showing tho dillieuliics which policemen think stand ii the way of a proper enforcement of the Gambling law. Caplain Tynan, of the- Oak Stieet I'lilice. states in his report that ht* Ihn.ksg.iniblers congregate at Nos. 1 anel 12Ann-st. au.l I'll) Fulton-d., but it is inpossible to get evidence against. them ex,: pt by bait.ring down thc doors. Such a plan is not NRfS except when a warrant is premired on the atli.lavit ol BOOM persons who can identify Un1 gamblera iu emt. Thc captain broke into No. 13 Ann-st. and had B suit for $10,000 damage- bronchi against hun. Ab u resull he' " was advised aol to repeat tbe performance." Following is thc conclusion of his report : In mv opinion ih" Bely posstUS way of fttin.; thc evieienc' necessary to arr bb! and "convict is to hire tbs kervlees or ga.ii Hie coullilence of some one who bus Hie ligl.t of way lo these pisses,see tben st tbelr operations, and noi- those en* gugcel in running the ciiteriirirei's. for me in cnn-: up ii llieli-preeiliu lion llicient Owing tn tue ulinosi CODS ni! supervision io winch it.e.-e pisces mc rattfec ed by rlBltS of tbe orticrsof mv command, then illegal operations AI* almost n.oiitit to n close.

In order to solve tbls twofold problem >! providing aa aoequats approach to the bridge sad of matias possible rapid traasli upon t.nus lu the elly's tautest, i have prepared un aot, windi goes to au.aay to-day the sebeme of whloh ls briefly ss follows: Tuc sol Kiv.s the city authority to open Hatbush-sve. ie ihe lin.lg.? as rn street 1-tti toot wills, hsvlug a i oadwiiy >f 1 io teet aad 15 feet side walks, lt Ilma provides that ibm e iu..,I h.. uo railroad ui?ui auy purl of thc avenue exoep! Ibe bl) lott lu the centre* Roxi, thut thore shun bene railroad even In IhOtportlOfl ur tho avenue ualess tlie pen tai ouiistrucMm; or operating tbe same enier into a eoveaant, sa dst ne.uei sud sulBewBl bonds, to pay to Hu. titi eef iirouglyn a royally of turec-eiuurtersolii oem per ?ssssugst na the elevated reads sud ons tllrd Ol a cent per passenger on lhe surface rouels. I M psesssmmn tee open the avenue aro to be begun by ibu Corporation Counsel at the reuuest of the Maye ir, aud thc act, In effect, authorizes the Mavor to uegotiato lu i.ehslf of the city with any persons willing to comply with Its fiinelHiiie-iitui terms as aoovo for Ibo cousti mi? tton oa the avenue whoa opened ot elevated aud surface railroads. The Mayor is to Invite proposals which must include the fundamental terms and be secured by a bond of $1,000,000. Tben he is to select the proposal In hs Judgment most lu tbe city's Interest and to submit lt together with the acconipmylug bond and a memo? randum of a proposed a-greement to be entered Into be? tween the proponing parties and the city to the Commou (numil, VV'nen such an agreement has received the consent of the Common Council and the Mayor and not before, tho Mayor wi 1 Instruct the Corporation Counsel to commence the opening prooeedlnes. Rv tbat time the city will be In possession ef a good bond lu the -sum of $1,000,000 tbat tbo corporation ibus receiving the consent of tbe local authorities will proceed to carry out their proposals In good faith. Among other things to bo secured by said bond ls u guarautec tbat tb" stipulated roialty ls never tobe less than $1.0,000 lu auy one year. I think lt reasonable to believe that in a very few years lt will amount to a mucb larger aud a con? tinually increasing sum. ^^ I estimate that tba work will cost tbe city $3,000,000. and stipulate before lt shall be beguu for a guarantee of 4 per cent thereon. Home tbiuk this estimate of cost too low. Possibly lt ls. It all depends SR the awards made for property. On Ibe other baud there is little douot that the city can burrow money for tbe work at3>a to 3 per cent per annnm. I believe further Ihat tbe moment lt becomes certain this work is to bo done values will Improve in ihe outer wards to a point that would more than oflsct tbe remote danger of au increase as the result of this improvement lu tue gen? eral rate of taxation. Within a few years I believe the royalty will steadily contribute to a sinking fund which will result tn the extinguishment of the bonds Issued to do tbls work. These things may not be. Tbo elly will get monsy's worth for whut lt spends If tbey should not. Hut I do not think myself too sanguine assuming the act to go Into effect now. Ills simply a question ot Judgment how inauy passengers tbe roads?surface and elevated-are likely to carry. There is a much larger epieslion Involved lu this action than tho mere eiteu-uou of HsttlUSh STU and onenlng thc way for rapid tra?s>t upon terms fair to all and favorable to tue city. The opening of the bridge will concentrate a treat stream eif people ut a glveu point. It ls a plain business propor? tion that railroads of all sorts desire to reach th it point to iieneflt by the traffic. Tbls act represents a d??ii** to secure for thc city some of tbe advantages ot thc altua tion. In conclusion, the Mayor recapitulates the advantages of tbe scheme, aud gives reasons why il should bc earned out at once. The Long Maud Railroad Company and the Kings County Elevated Railroad Company (ihe edd Bond scheme reorganised) ate eliscussiiiL' tht question of build? ing the proposed elevated structure In tbe middle of the new avenue.
