I,ETTKR OF MR. ORR. ln an explanatory letter to the Leglalature tran_ mltted wlth the blll. wlth tho concurrence of the Other members of tho Hoard, Mr. Orr says: Blnce the amendments to the Rapld Translt law were passed by the last ..eglslature, the Hoard of Rapld Translt Railroad Commissioners of the Cltv of New-York have b.-.-n engaged ln an unremlttlng Btudy of the great problem that they have been called upon to solve. After very careful and most anxloua con.lderatlon the Board ot Rapid Translt Railroad CommlsFloners bave reached the ooncluslon that they cannot .afely enter into contract under the provlalons of the ex iBtlng law for the constructlon of the proposed road, except wlth a corporatlon now exlstlng, or to be formed for the purpose. havlng a very large pald-up cash capltal. Only such a cmpany. It ls believed. could secure bonds that this Commlsslon would be Juatlfled In acceptlng, and also be able to provlde the necessary power plant wlthout borrowlng money upon It, so that the clty could have upon the plant. as the law requires, a flrst llen. The flrst step ln the successful solutlon of the buslness problem thus presented to thls Commlsslon Ue? In securlng a cor? poratlon competent to become a contractor under the terms of the exlstlng law. In order tfl make auch a result the more sure, the Commlsslon ask for certaln amendments to the law. NEED NOT BEGIN 1MMEDIATEI.V. In order that the flnanclal burden to be placed upon .uch a company may not be too onerous ln the early hourfl of the enterprise. the Commisslon aak that the requlrement upon the contractlng party to pay at least 1 per cent Into the sinking fund flhall not necessarily begln Immedlately. Tho requlrement to pay Interest on the bonds issued by tho clty should run as now; but It ls proposed that tne requlrement as to payments Into the sinking fund at the dlacretlon of the Commlsslon, shall not begln to run for flve years after the operatlon of tbe road has been begun, and may then run for a aecond perlod of flve years at Vt per cent, Instead Of at 1 per cent, except that, after the net earnlngs of the system upon the Investment of the contract? lng corporatlon reach 5 per cent, payments Into the ?Inklng fund shall be made annually of all exeess untll the present requlrement. of at least 1 per cent per annum be reached. The Commlsslon thlnk tbat wlth these modlflcations of the law. a con? tractlng party may be secured who may be trusted both to bulld and to optrate the proposed railroad; for they are persuaded that the franchlse ls one of Creat ultlmate value, commandlng, aa It doea, tho ay of atl underground trayel ln thla dty; while, ORIENTAL RUgS eaa-utt Carpets Our lerge importatlons for the Bprtflg Baaaon have arrlved. and are now ready for Inapectlon.

CHARACTER OF THK PROVI8IONB. The Commission beg to polnl out in a few words the character of the provlalon they have made to meet the rapid transit requlrementa of the city. both present and future. Beeldea the two tracka under Broadway from thr Bouth rerry to th.- city Hall they have provlded for 8 four-track ro ..| under Rroadway from the Clty Hall to rourteenth-at. a four-track road on U? weat alde of the clty under Broa dway and tht Boulevard from Fourteenth-at north and a four track road on the eaat alde of tha clty from Four teenth-st. north under Fourth aud Park avea. Ths road has its -Utlon platforma only ttjrtten feet beiow the sllewalk. on the averaare, which U oar-JS more than the helghi of a sin_.e story ln ... ordl? nary dweiiinK-house. The estmated run nlng tlrn for express tralna from the Clty Hall to One-hun dred-and-twenty-nfth-at. la nfteen minutea; and from tho Clty Hall to the Orand Central Btatlon la six mlnutes. What thls m.-ans to the people ??? New-York cannot be computed ln Bgurea nor ex pressed ln dollars. Ia personal cunfort in t.ie*av ng of time, nnd in lnerease of vslues, the i. -ne lt of lt would he Incalculaole. lt wlll benotlced that the system is an .lght-:rack ay.tem above i-.mr.._.ji...

In other worda, ror 16.000.000 the cstlmatcd cost of four tracks oa Bim st from Fourteenth-at. to the city Hall. th.- carry? lng capaclty of the entlre aystem can ba suhaun tlally doubled. WHY BROADWAT WAS CHOBBM. Broadway has heen chosen for the Ilrst track* be? iow Pourteentb-at for the followlng reason.: K.r-t. E'-BB st is not yet opened, and lt appeared to be bad Judgm.-nt lo walt untll 11 ahould bi : aee .nd, 11 of BrO'dway ln the not d atant future was In.vlUb . ln anv case. and 11 appeared to 1 I ! ? ? to take it for tlie clty before II became -til. more dlffl.-ult to secure it.
