The Park Commissioners who cre? ated Cei tral Park were named In the bill. William Astor contested the constitutionality ot the act, bul ? Aqueduct Commissioners were named In a legislative act, and millions of city bonds were Issi ? 'lt. The Court of Aj rly thinks su stituironai. In no sense can it be construed that Iks city lends Its money to the corporation which but'eis the road. Ths road ls the city's, built for lt srlth rt- own m >ney. The i Ity - ferry franchise--, it i m* not operate them. This ls strict.v anal gous to its leasing this pr..p..sci rapid I transit road for thirty-five years ("an there - doubt that this will ba I built for munli ipal t purposes'? I do pot think sa" Mr. Beeta ' ' ' ?""- ?** Appeals ri support of the claim that the referendum daw :'a'' OBJK.-Tl.iNrJ TO AN" UNDERGROUND SYSTKM. Bs-Judge N tab Davis appeared In behalf of some property owners on Broadway In opposition to the bill. The sons of Orland B P tter, lt was said, had employ, i him I i make an argument - the MIL J- said "kat trom a hasty ex? amination of th- bill he was convinced that lt -.?as not constitutional It was not in the - of the Legislature to deleirate lt* authority to voters to decide whether or not a city srhouH pay? out Ma.lss.IM in the oor.s'ructtor- of a rapid transit road. "I recently appeared in the Court of Appeals," said ex-Judge Davis, "and, mado an argument in behalf of Broadway property owners against the Arcade Railway project. The curt decided the act to be unconstitutional. The Broadway property owners are opposed to this bill because they think an underground road mlgbt be built under Broad? way, and they want none built there. If an under? ground mad were put In that street under this bli! we should fis-ht lt In the courts, and I predict that lt will be declared unconstitutional. In an indirect way this bill lends the city's credit to a private corporation. Countless millions of dollars of the city's money is to go into this? road. It ls an eva? sion of tba Constitution. You cannot do lt. This corporation will build the road, not with Its own money, bat with that of tho city." Lawson N". Fuller spoke In opposition to the bill, declaring tTiat no underground road would ever bc built as far as Wa abington Heights, where he lived, as lt would be too costly an undertaking. PREBn>X*-tT SMITHS ARGUMENT, Char'-** St.--.va.rt Pmith, president of the Cham? ber of C .rrimercc, said in part: "Goverr. >r. tbs people of New-York have resolved tha: tlie streets shall not be disfigured by any more elevated railways.

U - know two capitalists who will un lertake it. The sinking fund will redeem this debt aa fast as li ls created." Alexar-ler B. orr argued in favor of the bill, and Closed his remarks with the words: "Von have a chance, Oovernor, to Rive New-York City and New-York state a great benefit The .'oort of Ai> Pesls frequently decides a tiling >.y a vote of 4 to 3.

This measure will legislate out of office tbe heads of fourteen rte partments. Efficiency will count for nothing. The Mas.r- under it is to be th. practical head of every city di pertinent." Turning to Mr. Roome, Oovernor Plosrer then ask. i thia Interesting question: "Would you put up thi ia be:.- government of New '.'..rk si a raffle?" "I would," answered Mr. Roome. "I would make he May...- of N'ew-York a responsible officer." "Would there nol be danger of making bim a king;?" "i do not think bo," said Mr. Callahan; "von simply give the Mayor ol Nea Vork power thal hi should have. Would you like to go to the head of a big business house, Oovernor, and yet not have the authority t.. nam- your chief clerks?" "Hut Jefferson divided power among the officers of the people," suggested the Governor. "We made the President reaponalble for the gov ernment of the I'nlted States.' said Mr. Delafleld, "an i we wish - i make the .M.-.y..r the responsible hi el ef New-York's government."
