>r;i? following letter, recently received by #.
member-elect of tho Assembly, gives the views of
a well-known lawyer, who is easily identifie.!,
??pon some public cjuestlons. it gaya:
IVoplo In New-York seem to be In such a spasm
of excitement over the victory there that I fear
It will be difficult, if not Impossible, for mem?
bers of the Legislature to act upon their own
Judainanta?H they arc allowed to have any ?ay?
as to what measures of reform should be enacted.
As I have given much thought, for many years, to
matters relating to our city government, and have
bad much to do with drawing laws relating to it,
I propose to make you one or two suggestions.
You may not know that the present city charter
??-that of Ifll -procosflsfl chiefly from me. in my
action I was the chairman of a committee of the
Republican County Committee appointed to pre?
pare ameiidrnt nts to the charter. We confine?!
ourselves to amendment.'. The Legislature intro
?Jaced changes and also re-enacted many of tli??
sections of the old charter which art had left un
amended. A year or two aso I looked the pres?
sai ?ity ?harter over with some care, and was
pleased to tin.! that, without ex?-eption. every pro
?I m In it which has worked well and met public
a;.;.pt.il tt.'..- draws by me, while every clause
Which h?s opened the door to fraud an?! mlsgov
eminent was. so far as 1 could see. added at Al?
bany, alter our draft was sent there.
? may add, also, that I drew and procured the
-wssasje of the bill which relieved the Mayor of
th.- aeccaslty of having his nominations confirmed
by th? ti.idrd of Aldermen.
I mention these thins? to remind you, as one
of th? younger Republicans, that I am not without
?tastiflcation in thinking that the following sug?
gest:?.:.s from me may be of some valu.-:
Flrst?Ther? seems to be a universal agreement
that the Mayor ought to have the power to s lect
the head? of department who are to admlnlat?r
the city government under him. This is so ob
v;.. ?sly the correct principle that I wonder it was
not introduced long ago; or. rather. I should won?
t). r if I did not know th? influences which were
afatast It. Sonic years ?ngo. when there was a
democratic Mayor, I drew such a bill an?l cams
near proctttiag its passage, it was. however, de?
feated by Republican? who desired to retain in
Sflfce uaworthy Republican Police Commissioners.
Bat While the Mayor should have th? absolute
right to select th.- heads of department, 1 do not
think it follows that he should, after he has on-?
?elected thesa, have the absolute and unqualified
right to r? move them. If he has that power, then
his bes la o? department coas.- to have any in le
He ?h require them to appoint this or
that rabordlnate, He could in this way control
pra-tically the lS.?Mfl or 17.0iX> employes of the city.
He could dictate his own renomination or select hlr.
?sor. excepting in times of extraordinary pub?
lic int.rest. In enacting laws now, it should b?
remembered that Mr. Strong is not alwnys to b?
our Mayer and the laws should be enacted with
reference to correct principles not with reference to
We!- I ?he law-making power, 1 would accomplis!!
th- t? ? ?purposes .1 giving a nee Mayor the ab?
solut? power to select his heads if I? pertinent, and
of git;ng such heads of department some Indepen?
dence, in this way: I would give S new Mayor
ah?, lute power of rera ivlng t) ? head? of di partment
whom be finds In office ? h>t he tak. ' hi? ofl.ee,
an! ol appointing the I ?rs. Bui 1 w tul !

he n mei int i olBc? A Mat..:' At t ? be such could
mn y within mat period?ordinarily five ?
after his election?-decMe which of th.- existing bee la
of department he desired to continue In .?th
ni such new one? as be preferre?!. After thai
period I would not allow him t?> remote a !.. 11 of
department-wheth.-r ?ine of his own ap|
<?r one whom he ha?! allowed to hoM over i v ?pt
ing upon ?letinite ehargea of mtacooducl (malfeas
ance or non-feasance?, accompanied with such right
;n the accused to be h? u 1 snd defend hlms? (
as may be found . \\- lient If the making of
? harges. by the Mayor effected a suspension ??f the
..nicer and of hi? ?alary, 1 do leu tlilnk the in*
vestigation w ?uld be un luly prolonge! But this i- a
matter of detail. What l would Insist upon i-, first, thi
absolut? power of ? new Ma) n ; ? appoint his own
hea?is of ?department; second, some measur? ??f In
?iependence and permanence on the part of h^-ads
of department when appointed. These purpoaea
might be accomplished by making the term of of
fice of heads of department coincident with that
??f the Mayor. But th.-r.- s.-.-ms to be a strong ob
;ect,in entertained to an) ?on-dderable ?xtenal >n of
the term of oflta of the Mayor, while l think it
would h>? very undesirable to limit the terms of
ofllce of l:.-tjs ol departmeni necessarily to ?.
short a term. A new Mayoi com ng Into ofllce might
well hesitat?- to reappolnl one whom be finis .:i of?
fice, while he might be willing to leave him undis?
turbed We all know boa personal snd i il
n ?s.ns might produce such a result.
Second?After Ihe exposition Which the I.exow
?'?mmittee has given us of the enormous power of
the police f,,r ,v:l. I Cannot imagine any? thinking
man b.-!ng willing to V??t all ttiat power in ?.ti?
man, whether you call him commissioner, superin?
tend nt. angel. <?r something else To say, as I see
i? sail in New-York, that s ?Pollee Commit
with su h powert - i b? rea ?ved by the Mayor,
if he mlsoQ-adncted himself ..r did not properly eon
trol btf subordinate?, serins to me childish talk.
The Mayoi of New-York cannot b?- constantly and
da..;. ? ipervkslns th? acts of th.- police force. He
could only be calle?! ?m?, action ui extreme case?, ?>r
af>" a l-.ng coots? ??f wroaa-doina by the head

Sametlmea to DO ran avt iv With by names and
ara,- .'.-< --seems to look with favor upon a military
organization of the police department. Hut wha:
I? a military organisa'.! in .' The general of an
army in the field neither appoints nor removes hla
?uborj;nates. nor ?elects his privates. He simply
use? and directs the force given M him In
?uch manner as he deems best. He places
his divisions, brigades, r-glment? an?l oompanlea
where h?- cSSMWaa, and designate? their commander?
from the f!i??-rs given to bim. !!?? relieve? hi? of

Why not then follow this military idea t?. a cer?

Simon Sterne, memher of tho Committee of Sev
eniy. delivered a lecture on "The City of New
York and It? Nee-la" yesterday momine-, under the
auspices of District ?rand Lodge No. 1, of
the independent Order B'nal B'ritn, at Jaeger's
Hall. .Madison-ave. an I Fifty-ninth-?:., in which he
Strongly advocated the centralization of municipal
power and responsibility In a Hoard of Aldermen
constituted of iif;y members. This Board of Alder?
men, Mr. Sterne held, should h.tvo absolute con?
trol of all the departments ?>f th<- city ?government
He also urged upon the audience that active meas?
ures should ho taken to Introduce in nil public
schools a system ??i civic education, beginning with
a primer f.?r the young pupils. The lectura waa
listened to attentively by .i large audience of m. n
and women.
The pulpit of the West Presbyterian Church
was occupied yesterday by th.- Rev. I'r. Robert
M?cheosle, pastor of ih?* rirst Preabyteriaa Church
of s.in Francisco. Dr. Mackensle is enjoying a
brief vacation In the Past, and on invitation of
Jamea H Benedict, one of the trusties <?f the
church, lias consented to preach there four time?.
The \is!n?r is not a candidate for tin- vacant put?
pi!, and will not take the Rev. i'r. Paxton'a place
.as i>ast?>r of th" church. Dr. M?cheosle is a pro?
fessor of theology In the San Francisco Theologi?
cal Seminary, at s yearly salary of I^OOO, Besides
this he has his salary of ??'..is?j as minisier of his
church at home, so the pulpit of the West Presby?
terian Church offers no Inducement? when consid?
ered from s pecuniary view only The church was
well idled jresterday to hear Dr. Mackensle, and he
made a favorable Impression, In sppesrance he
is a wiry, energetic man aliout th-?' feel ?durit
I inches tall. He speaks clearly and at a moderate
i rate, without falti-ritig or hesitation, and holds the
dose attention of his audience. The speaker io,?k
I for hi? t?-ct Luke? xxlv., 2 "And they found th?
j ?tone rolled away from the BeDOlchre." He said, In

to form a club, repn aentlng no college, or not even

The proje.-t of Introducing military Instruction
an l tactical drill In the public m noois has met
wiih Kr.-at favor In all parts of the country. The
Influence of the Grand Army has been exercised
b?n?ficiai!}, in support ?,f the endeavor, but diffi?
culty has been experienced in procuring proper ln
Btructors, especially in large ??tics The President
of the United states, un.hi- existing law, may ?I?
tall offlcera of the Army and Navy to act as in?
structors In colle?..?, and the Secretary of War
may issue suns and equipment? an?l other BCOSS?
?ary ordnance stores, but these provisions do not
extend to the public schools. To meet this want
in the scheme Congressman William J. Coombs, of
Iirooklyn. last Wednes.lay, at the request of Uen
eral C.eorg;?- W. Wlnicate, Captain Zallnskl'a ?u<:
cessor, In charit? of military Instruction In schools
in the United States, introduced In ihe House of
Rapresentatlvea at Washington a bill pmendlnp
the revised statutes, so that officers of the Army
and Navy may he detailed t?i give military In?
struction in the schools,' as well as the colleges of
the country.
Such details, If the bill becomes a law, are to
he made by the President, as far as practicable,
from th?? officers and non-commissioned offlcera of
troops stationed In the neighborhood of the schools
where Instruction is required, and only so much
time as is necessary is to be devoted to thai pur?
pose. The number of pupil? to i?- instructed In
military tSCtlCS must ex?.d .'.'>?> lo warrant the
detail. Tin- number of offlcera detailed under th?.
new act must not exceed fifty, exclusive of th" ??
detailed undei the present law. In addition, Con?

of War to issue under proper regulations, ?\hi?-h
