A LONG FIGHT LIKELY. MONTAUK INDIANS MAT SUE FOR L.ONO ISLAND LANDS. MII.UOXS OP DOLLARS IN PEAT. ESTATE INVOLVED ?FARMERS, CORPORATIONS AND THE RAIL? ROAD HELD TO BE SQUATTERS? WTANDANK PHARAOH TO REPRESENT HIS TRIBE. Bridgehampton. Long Island, people are Inter ested in the decision given at Riverhead by Judge Reeve, under which the remnant of the Montauk trlhe of Indians ts allowed to bring suit against the Long Island Rallma-1 and other corporations snd persons. The suit will be brought in the name of the tribe by Wyandank Pharaoh, the present chief of the tribe. The few remaining descendants nf this once powerful tribe have long complained that they were cheated out of a great part of the land, tnd that by right the whole of Long Island east of Canoe Place Inn. and some west of lt. tat 111 belongs to the tribe, nnd that the railroad, the farmers and the corporations on the disputed land are squatters, and have no legal right to the land. The suit will doubtless be entered at the next or. at the latest the s??ind term nf court after the present one. That Its end will come within the lives of those now living is not expected, and it ls certain to be costly to all concerned. Should the Indians win, there is no doubt that the wealthiest of the defendants will combine to e-.rry the case to the hicher courts, and after that the case win probably be fought back and forth through every court In the land. That even the first decision will be reached for many years is doubtful. The finding of testimony and exhibits will send men delving Into records 200 year* old, and the history of each acre will have to be traced year after year from the com? ing of the earliest settlers down to the pres? ent time. All the acts and law* paesed relative to the Indians and their lands by the Colonial. State and National Governments will have to he gone over by both sides In search of evidence. Even the records of England will be searched for evidence. The co*t will he great, hut the stake ls worth flg-hting for. The land which is now placed tn dispute ls worth many million** of dollars. In the future lt will be worth many millions more. There is not much doubt among those who hold deeds to property in that part of the island that the claims of UM Indians will be finally upheld, but ewry one realizes that the placing of their property 1n Jeopardy will make sales of land wellnlgh impossible except at low prices. WOULD SATISFY ALL HANDS FAVORABLE COMMENTS ON THE NAMING OF CHARLES A. MOORE. HIS FRIEND* THINK THE NAVT OOCLD NOT BE IN BETTER HAND??CLTT3MEN GRATIFIED. The ehkf topic of conversation among Repub? licans in Brooklyn yesterday was the announcement that Charles A Moore had been asked by Major McKinley to be the next Secretary of the Navy. The mention of Mr. Moore's name in connection with that poiltlcn apparently met cordial approval The members cf the Montauk Club, of which Mr. Moore 1* prtsldent. Were especially well pleased with the announcement, as might be expected At the Vnlon League Club, also, where Mr. Moore is a member, there was much favorable ^omnvnt, and many kind things were said of Mr. Moore, al? though the Union League 1* the birthplace of Con? gressman Francis H.

One of the Presldent-ekct's acquaintance* In th* Vnton League Club gave Mr. Moore this cordial c -npllment last evening, In conversation with sev < aa of his fellow-clubmen: *4F.cKlnley will be extremely fortunate If he can pei.-uade Moore to inter ht* Cabinet, and especially so If Moore will take the Navy. I believe that McKinley wants to give New-York a place. If so. It ia only natural that he should confer the honor upon one of the best friends ho has in the country. He ha* had every reason to know that Moore's ap? pointment would Rive universal satisfaction Inside the State, and if you can make a political appoint? ment that would satisfy all New-York Repub? licans, you may be pretty sura that there would bo no dissatisfaction anywhere. Moore ls In every respect eminently qualified for the place. His busi? ness has given him a close acquaintance with Navy official*, and has made friends for him In al! sec? tions ot the country." Mr. Moore was not at hom* yesterday, except for a short time In the morning. HOMER SHOAL TURRETS. COLONEL LANGDON DISCUSSES CON? GRESSMAN FISCHERS BILL. LITTLE ADVANTAGE TO BE GAIN'ED C NT-ESS THE RANGE OE FIRE 18 Si'PFIClENTI.Y BROAD ?MAGNITL'DE OE THE WORK Military men are displaying considerable curi? osity about the bill Introduced In the National House of Representative! by Congressman Israel F. Fischer, of Brooklyn, providing for the fortifica? tion of Romer Shoals, In the Lower Bay, with three revolving turrets. Among those especially interested in Colonel Loomis L. Langdon, who ls a recognized authority in. military etrcles on the subject of coa?t fortifications. Colonel Langdon ls not sure that he approve* thoroughly of Con? gressman Fis.-lier's MU, and sa>s that he docs not want io criticise lt sharply until he has itudied the exact location of Homer Slioais With relation to the nearest points of land.

ASCERTAINING THE DEGREES OF MOIST AND DRY HEAT NECESSARY TO KIDD THE MI? CROBES?OTHER TESTS. While there |B no great danger of the bubonto I plague reaching thi* port. Dr. E. H. Wilson, bacteriologist of the Health Department, on Satur- j day called attention to the difficulty of handling \ the plague In Brooklyn should lt come, owing j to the failure of the proper authorities to apr.ro- j rriatn money for maintaining the disinfecting plant In Ktnsston-nve. The plant is one of the moat complete in the , city, and cost IK.OOo. But disinfecting steam ls j now generated at the plant only about once a j week. Then lt 1* used only for disinfecting good*, tbs owners of which are willing to re-lease Health Commissioner Emery from SSTSMUd liability for ' damage. Tho question has been raised aa to j wh*ther Dr. Emery 1* responsible for good* dam- \ sged In the process of disinfection. Counsel Albert R Mooro maintains that Dr. Emery ls nol responsible. ' The Contagious Disease Hospital ls likewise saJd to SS totally inadequate for a serious epidemic. In j the worst of the smallpox epidemic, 120 patients were aent to the hospital, and miny of them had to be provided for in tenta. Tho warde of ths hospital were thrown together hastily, and were not built scientifically. Dr. Emery and Dr. Wilson will to-day or to? morrow confer with the Quarantine authorities regarding tho experiments that Dr. Wilson is making with cultures of the bubonlo pest. Dr. I Wilson has already discovered that the germs are i destroyed at the comparatively low heat of les ' degrees Fahrenheit, In moist air. He has ascer? tained that, with dry heat, only a few more de? grees nra necessary. Ho has been at work for two days on experiments to ascertain whether the ? germs would live throughout the voyage from India In merchandise. The method of ascertaining this ts to lnfpct sterilized blankets with cultures, and then place them in a dark, thoroughly dry receptacle. At Intervals, pieces cf the infected blankets are plac.xd within culture media, usually beef .teat, to aee if they develop niraln. This la a highly Im- ? portent experiment, brit has not gone far enough yet to give any noteworthy results. Dr. Wilson, yesterday, likewise began the task Sf ascertaining whether the bacillus of this dis- j case ls killed by exposure to th* sunlight, as 1* that of cholera. Vosterday was aboat the llrst sunny dav he has had for th***- tests. One of the most important things to be deter? mined from the corfe renee with Dr. Doty ls as to whether lt Is desirable to ascertain by experi? ment if these germs nay be carried alive from India In halos of rags. WnUe most of the raga coming to this country dre shipped from Egvpt. where lhere is no plague, still, some ar* ?, being shipped from Indian port*. Th* method of experimenting lr. this case Brill be to prepare a test bale of rasa, some of the rags in the Interior be? ing Infected with cultures. Dr. Wilson hopes to report to Dr. Emery by the middle of next week regarding the possibility of bringing the germ* alive to this country, and the, heat required for disinfection. There will then remain, however, an exceedingly Important ex? periment. That is, to aseertaln whether th!* dis? ease is communicable alone by food an.l drink, or nay be likewise communicated through the air There are several ways In which this experiment mav be made. One of them ls to place cultures In an air-tight chamber and, after leaving them there for some time, to blow the air imo another chamber In which there are culture media, then to wac-h whether bacilli develop in the second chamber. This experiment is a dangerous one. or. rather, lt will provo just how dangerou- is all ex? perimenting with the cultures of this dlsea**. --o A XOTHER GVX COM IX G. PUSHING COAST DEFENCE WORK AT FORT HAMILTON. THE TOP CARRIAGE FOR THE FIRST OtTN TO BE IN* PLACE SOON-PECRECT WITH WHICH THE WORK 19 CARRIED ON. Colonel William M. Graham, of the 5th Artillery, who ls In command at Fort Hamilton, has J-is* beon Informed that the Navy Department has ordered to b? sent to Fort Hamilton the ?eeond nf the ten-Inch breech-loading gun* that are to make this port unapproachable to the war vessels of a foreign enemy. Colonel Graham said yesterday that he believed the gun was io come from the Watervliet arsenal, nei.r Troy. The concrete foundation for the first of these guns hus been finished, and the lower earring.-. which came last November, ls In place. It is ex? pected to have tho top carriage, which arrived last week, la place by tbs end of the month. As soon as that work ls finished the first of the guns will bs mounted und will be ready for practice. The old Inhabitants of Kort Hamilton take un? kindly to the secrecy ibat ls maintained regarding the work that is now going on at the remodelled fort. But ia only in obedience to orders from Washington. The real motive for keeping civilian* out of the fort is not to keep the American public In ignorance as to what ls being done, but to pre? vent emissaries from foreign Powers from studying the fortifications and learning Just what field the new guns can play over. No or.e gets past the .-?:.'. nels now ex-.ept those who have a permit from Colonel Graham, and those permits are few and far betweea. The Runs are to be mounted between four hugo i mounds of raith, and the only things that can bs petn from the outside are the big derricks that are being used to place the carriages. Colonel George L Gillespie, of the Engineers' Department, has ihe work In chsirce, aral is being assisted by Lieutenant McGregor. Watson Bennett has i barge of the ISO n.e:i wtio are engaged on tho work, 'ihe guns are , io be mounted upon Crosler-Huffington disappearing .arr.ages. These .-nable the guns to h.- load.-.; and aimed out of view from the enemy, then raised and tired. After bt-lnjr Bred the carnage returns to ita former place, automatically. A ten-in<!i gun la about thirty-five feet long, and I with ll* earring* weighs about nir.eiy tons. Two j hundred and fifty pounds of powdar send* a ST.'. pound ste.-l projectile eight or ten miles. The artillerymen of the fort art being carefully i t ru in- vi by Lieutenant Callan in the matnematl ts ol modern coast defence. Tba old m*tho<i of aiming '? along sights on the guns ha* departed with thi- oil ! smooth-bore guns. A man wltn a mounted gh.v< gets ttie txac: direction of a vessel, and the gun ls pointed tn thai direction with mathematical car- j talnty by tbe u*e of horizontal ctr. ular regulators, : marked with degrees, on loth plas* ar.d gun. Tho ? disience will bs obtained with accuracy by estab llshlns s baseline between Pori Hamilton and Fort , Wadsworth, and getting anglia by observations nf the vessel from both points. Information is ex chansed by telegraph. Scientific it.strument* ar^ used to get the density of the air and the direction anti velocity of the wind. These and the velocity of the vessel's movement are tak?-n into consider? ation In aimin? the gun before raising lt for firing. So th-j gunner proper does not see the target, but merely directs the gun and gives lt th" proper alti? tude, according to mathemaleai tables already worked out. lt is proposed to pr*pare an observation point for the dflVer In charge of operations, so that h* may direct the operations by telegraph, using a charted map of the water surface covered.

HOW A VAC DEVI I.I.E PF-RFORMKR GAVE A SHOCK TO THE MEMBERS OF A PATERSON l-ONOHEUATION. Paterson, Jan. 21? The people of the First Bap? tist Church are considerably worked up over an occurrence in the church last Tuesday night. Tba* discussed it quietly after service to-day. The re suit was that lt is unlikely that there will be an? other entertainment before a committee of the church ha* seen the whole dress rehearsal. The entertainment wns given In the church cn Tuesday night lo old the fund with which ?ln church is educating two young women for mission? ary work. The committee In rharge of the enter? tainment after engaging UM local talent tiiouarht to give the people a treat, and went to Now-York, where other entertainers were engaged to AU In. They told the thea tri. al agents Just what kind of an entertainment lt wa* to bo, and, with a single exception, the performers were Just right. The mar on the evening's entertainment was a young woman named Wilson, who was down on the progrjm.-n" to roctts e.irlv In the evening. "Thc Convicts christmas Dinner." Certainly tao title sounded nil right Thi words were perte *tly proper and extremely touching, bat their effect eras lost iMcause o.' ihe attire of the rodter. When she walked upon the pulpit platform to recite she ha 1 discarded her skirts, and as the convi:t. according to the piece, was a ri,,ni; she wore a mans cloth? ing of the kind prisoners wenr. That shocked thc audience, but ther.- was applause when she firi labed, although lt was noticed that many refralneo from expressing approval, and that some question? ing glances were east on the members Ol the com mittee. these men and women, who had leen even more surprised than the rest, were red In the face and lt 1* said that when the performer Km tn stage she was told she, could not appear again ill that costume. _ ? ?._, Her second pieCS w-iis shout a gypsy flower-gin and winn the number '.itu- around she appeared Clad as a gypsy, but it was I rests.lu- such sa few flower-girls wear, lt was all right as to length mid height, bul lt was rather gaudy.

Mr. Brougher, the pastor Of tht church, preached from thal same platform a ser? mon that denounced dancing In scathing terms and pronounced it a device of the devil to lun people from the true path. The members of th church held their breaths and looked on la an >z - mi-r.i. Fortunately fur bis peace of mind the ? as? tor was far away, engaged iii B duty belonging to his calling. Tho performer closed her piece with .-. swish, a shuf> and a sui"!;, eui the affair wi - over. She was di wn for another piece, but before it cami- around the entertainment was cut short and the affair was over. The committee h.is been cleared Of nil blame arti! so has the performer.

Hy n rising vota th<> encampment in? structed the newly elected delegates to vote for Admiral Meade at the National Encampment, to be held at Buffalo In August, for Commander-in Chief. This n<tlon ls looked upon by many as em? phasizing the sentiment, believed to be growing, in f,iv..r of a shipmate of the Navy for Commander-in Chief n.-xt time. The annual encurnpment of Rhode Island will be held on February 8 and 9. and that of Massachusetts on February ll and 12. There aro rumors that resolutions favorable to Admiral Meade's candidacy will be In.roduoed at both en? campments, and that they will be supported by comrades who think that the time has come to place a sailor In the highest office of the order.

George IfcAneny, ssci-otarjr of the civil Service | Reform Association, has sent a communication to | The Tribune- n-gardlng Abraham Gruber's attack on the Civil Si nice system, part ot which fol? lows: In the sense that Abraham druber has managed to spread abroad a great deal Of ml.-dnformat.on I .' thi I ;. Service system or the State, fie is to bc* taken seriously. Hu Cooper Union talk < on Bisted or' a luci ii;^lon of false statements that diouid not be allowed to pass uncontradicted After assuring his hiarers that he meant to "tight. tight, light," Mr. druber ailed. In* rather a hign ton- of voice, til it he meant to "fight fair." What it mean* to his mind to fight fair ls shown to some degree, by the following notes: First?At opening of ihe sj.eerti he said: "At the present tune, for all the phi es In the departments In New-Vork City the applicants are examined by a Hoard of Examiner? composed of a cull en pin-er, an architect, a builder and a lawyer. These null frame questions not based upon their own personal experience or knowledge, no attention be? ing paid to '.he ap; licant's ability to do the work." There are nine members of the local Examining Poard, exclusive of the examiners In the Police Department representing as many pro>ssion*. In the Police Department the physi' tll examinations, In which to per cent of the candidates are rejected, are conducted hy a Board of Surgeons. In tech? nical examination'- experts are employed to pre? pare an-1 mark the- papers. Sixty-two of the 123 competitive examinations held In UN were of this character, Dr. Austin Flint being consulted in th* examinations fur the hospital service, for instance; !':sh Commissioner l-larkford for aquarium posi? tions, and so on. In every case the candidates "practical ability to do the work" is tested, and nothing e!.-? Becon I? Regarding a re.-er.* examination for meat (nape tors ha said: "The questions in this case were prepared by the lawyer of th* Hoard, who m.iv have had some advice from hts butcher." atc. The questions! were prepared by a noted sanitary expert, in consultation with the chief of the di? vision of gani ta ry Inspection Of the Health De? partment, and the rx .ti..-, it?n consisted principally of practical tests with samples of meats. Third-of tha examinations for mechanics, he said: "When a man who has trained in a shop applies for a place, he ls not guaged or judged by his ability to do his work, he is asked a lot of I Billy ouestions instead." I Candidate* for mechanical positions are exam- | lned In the shops of the New-York trade schools ( In the actual use of their tools. They are ques? tioned about their knowledge of pain: pot and brush, or of hammer, fire, tongs and anvil, as the case mav he, and ate not required to write a line about aiivthing. In the ?n'.ire labor service of the i -Itv, comprising nbeut i.OOS places, there is no test except the .-an lldate's skill, as shown in the , shops, his phvslcal ability to do the particular j work for which he applies, and his habits as to j sobriety. If he enn't write he Isn't required to sign his own application, but may have some one ! do it for him. Through this sys:em in lS^i S<50 j men snd women .-e.-ur-d good permanent positions without the help of a pull from any one. aad 481 I others were employed for temporary work. Fourth?He read half a donn questions, evi? dently culled at some pams from the thousands asked annually tn the Police Department, and bearing on simple details on the American form \ ot government or feature? of nearby geography. ' and declared that "these were the questions used to settle a man's chance of earning a living." The case ls rare In which a question of the sort quoted counts for more than one-naif of 1 p,-r cent In an examination. For the police force the main '?xamlnii.ti it; ls physical and athletic. Many fa.l in this test, bat comparatively few in the mental test. The candidate's ar.llty In the written exam? ination affects Ut tie more his relative place on the Hst. As one list is exhausted l>..-foro another ls formed, the grading does nut affeot the chances of appointment seriously, except that the highest are taken first. The whole system of police ex aminatlon ls admirable and most fair. In the case of all other places In the city service, ex? cept teachers, the subje-t of ge-ography, about which so many humorously phrased questions are quoted, la not used at all. Ninth? Hi dwe'.t st great length on the "life ' that exists i.-i classified positions, and the iaii^-i r of the establishment of a bureaucracy in the ex:,:,-., a of ta-* merit rule*. This is perhaps tue most pernicious falsehood of the lot. So far as the Civil Servt.-e law :s con? cerned a department officer may dismiss in his dls cr.-t.nn any employe he thinks ?hould go Regula? tion KS of the loc?! r.i'.es provides specifically that "The power of any officer to remove is not Im? paired by anything contained in these regulations.'' Twelfth?Ha stated that "since this agitation be? gan" the examinations conducted by the local Hoard aj\e been "much fairer" than previously. So fair have they been that Mr. Qrubei*a law clerk, afttr digging for day? among the question papers. failed to find a single one to which exception could be taken Mr Griller visited the Civil Service office* a few days ago to ex;>la:n that the question* ns wanted were not these that had been furnished to his clerk, but those in geography and the other .i idemlc branches that were put to me laborers. Wi., ii ::-' tined teat such things did not exist, and given fut t:net- light with regard to the system of rr.-ide school tests, he departed, declaring that it was .ill a great deal fairer than he had BUppoecd. While ll is true thal Ihe examinations conducted bv the local Pearl are fairer than they once sere, lt must I ie sdded that this was the -ase : ng before anything had been -.e.^l either of Mr Gruhcr or his ridiculous movement.
