A 8TUPASDOUS JOB.
The fact Is pretty well established by thin
? me -.hi? the Tammanj leaden have been play?
ing a sharp game oven the proposed m un ? a
building site. Their original intention wah In
late 'lie City Ila'l Park for 'he ptirrsnae, and O
put up there ? gigantic ttmcture at enormonB
expense. They have never abandoned that in
tcntion, though they were anxious to have ii
appeal lhal they had ?Ion?? to. When populai
? ??o? .-?ii? ? ? ? their project had becomeanfliciently
vigorous ? embarraaB them rempotarily they
made a pretence of yielding to ir. and permitted
id.? Legislature of 1890 to in?- a prohibitory
measure without gfavmuouB objection. They did
not acknowledge the neceeaity or advantage ?
;!ii-i it.striction, bul trere willing to appear
acquiescent. The community supposed the dan?
ger tvaa pant, which is precisi ly what Tammany
desired the community to suppose, for the conse?
quent boom of -eciirity and lack of watchfulness
were essential to the plans ol ?he bosses.
Since that limo, applying to ihi? practical
affair ??ha? is known in logic as the procesa ??
exclusion, they have been persistently and dis?
ingenuously engaged In an attempt to prove thai
the ?'it? Hall Park i? the only available aite for
the new building, by prop sing one k cation after
another which th y were certain the public would |
condemn. Incidentally ibey have derived much
-,r ?faction and endeavored 11 obtain nome profil
from a scheme for punishing Mr. Ottondorfer
for the independence of the " ?Staats-Zeitung."
Abandoning that bene after 'hey had used it aa
11:? as they thought wise, they next proclaimed
fhe ridiculous purp se of appropriating Uryant
Park, being sure in advance far populai opini m
would at once declare against that spoliation.
??? p ?\? lin'illy. pretending that tbej bave ex
hausted tike Hal of possible rites, they have causei
a bill to be introduced in both branch?e <if tb?
Legislature repealing the lau of 18.90 tnd ? -
mirili? the erec?ton of Ihe municipal building
in the Oitj Hall Park, when? from the outset
ihf.v hate been ?< tt'i-ininod t<, meet it ? more
Impudent exhibit?oo of deceitful t?ctica the city
has not wittteased in recent years.
The project now is to pur up a htigeedilhe OB
and around the ?.pot when the Citj Hall m??.?
s'ands: to remove that beautiful building, which
belongs where it .s and neither" else, !?> some
p mote ?and unfriendly sit??, t?tere to be Mpre
-**rved" as a maimed and barren memento of a
simple and silly period In local history, before
our dtj rulen bad grasped tho full significai o
bu 1 meaning of municipal government by a se?
cret society ; anil to inapose one or more addi?
tional storie?? upon ehe County Court HOOBO, by
wav of crowning Tweed's masterpiece in a f?ttine.
harmonious ami sympathetic manner. No won
der tha' the oertt**utie*< involved in thi? colossal
Job, the probabilities t-, vrhich if boldly points,
and the possibiiitica which it furtively suggests,
are perfectly fascinating to ihe greedy pon
gpiraton who divido tlie illicit reronuesoi Tam?
many lia!i. There are millions In It, and they
all e.vpecL to e?-ni" in fot ? iban of the rii h
gpoil. There is n-.t and there never has been
the least difficulty in finding ? suitable afte for
tbe new municipal building outside of the City
Hall l'aik. The rulen of Tammany and New
Vork are noi In king fora mutable site, ? ir are
th ;, d .?;. lua of putting up a suitable building.
They aro cagei to repeal upon as large
??- ?? -.-.!.'.? ili?? wanton Jobber] rrbicfa made In
County Courl 1!'?:.? infamous and the nevi ? ap
?to] al Albany ? ? gantic monument of fo ly and
extravaganc ??
That is their purpose, and they will be able
to accomplish it? unless a stronger protest than
has yet boon heard forces its way iato tbe Sen
ate aad Assembly. In its presen! form tbe bill
introduced by Messrs. 1.' eech and Sohmer ??
the beginning of operations until May l. 1893,
but that i?? obvtousiy a mei pretence of de
. li ?. The Mayor is opposed t. any posi
ponement, and i* would be foolish to assume tini
tho next Legislature will be able to protect the
c.tv ayants? this raid, if determined opposition
is no; manifested at race, the bill will be so
altered as to let tho work begin speedily and
proceed too far to bo stopped. The time to pr.
tcst is now.
SEEDS oi THE SEW .WUT.
"??? San" makr?? a reasonable appeal fir
an enlarged appropriation for th?? new Navy.
It directs attention to tlie fad that Secretary
Tracy has asked for ?H 2,280,856 this year,
whereas 617,607,000 ?ta- appropria ed last ycai
f ? the increase of the Nav.v. Hence if the
Democratic House grants the full amount there
v.ill be retienchmeni to th" extent ??G $5,826,?
???.o. The ifiecrotary has recommended tbe m
thorization of two battio-ships of th?? Indiana
clas* and one armored cruiser modelled al ??
the New-York. II?? has als. asked for four
-mal! vessels for foreign service and Baverai
torpedo-buat?. The Naval Committee of th???
House has only been willing to grant anthoi ?;?
for one vessel?a idstor ship t> the New-?ork.
"The Sun" evidently wnsiders this an unwi ?
md parsim mi ms policy. I' advine* the c inatruc
*ion of a battle-ship like the Indiana in addi?
