THE Ma\SSAClU:SETTS OUT. LEAKS ON DKYDOCK NO. 3 COVERED BY TIDE-WATEK. WORK ON THE ??? RATTLE-PHI G FINISHED YES? TERDAY MORNING-REPAIRS TO THE DOCK TO RE BEGIN AT ONCE?EXTENT OF THE DAMAGE. When the last rivet urt? driven and tho connec? tions were made there war. a final test of the valves Of the circulating system on bonr.l the battlo-ship Massachusetts, and the work was declared to bo complete and safe. Then there was a sigh of re? lief from those who had the e-nro of the big ship on their minds, nnd the ord??r was given to flooil the drydock in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. This order wae given nt about 10:30 o'c'.ock yesterday forenoon, end by 11 o'clock the ship was afloat. For two hours previously the water from the leaks ?which had .aus? ? M much anxiety had been al? lowed to flow Int? the aeek unhindered, and ??? pump that had kept the wotrr at a level which al? lowed tho men at work on tht Massachusetts to finish their ta.-ks WO* stopped. Tho wnter had Increased Its flow rince Sunday night to such IE extent that about ten Inches an hour was pouring Into the ?Jock, and as this meant ton Inches over an area BM feet !<-np ly M feet wide some idea of the extent of the leaks may be had. Who* IlM bratet had rea-hed the tide level the ??Trent pare v. rs BWungJ back, and In tow of two I tugs the Maaaach-wetta ?ar?? tatua to the Cob Dock j ??rail and 11? <I up. Th? pat.? was not swunic back, | and probably will not bo until the work of prevent- I Ing ntiy further Influx of wat? r ha- BO far advanced that the ?ta\gtaOtT? are confident that the dock will | be safe Various opinions have beer, expres.--.el rr? to the I appearance of leaks In the ?tetero wall of the dry dock, but thA engineers ore Inclined to believe that It was due lo the water undermining th?? structure and so king the oittl-t which offerr.1. the '.east ro- | Blstance. if thai vi? w i* correct, it saeans an enor- I Itimi? outlay of mop.y ?.id time h'for.? the do k | Will be fl! for ure. as there Is apparenti-? nothlti?,' ? to prevent the e. rrmnt loor giving way ???.?t the ? weight of a ship. One Incident ?hick showed t'.o j lr.roads of the water on the structure of the dock | wa ? 11m appearaaoe of an eel, w-hioh had wriggl??.! Its way between two of the altar-pi? COB in the west wall nnd calmly flopped, down a few steps to the water. The eel was about fourteen Incite? long and an inch In diameter, showing that rome larga cracks h.-.d been made in the wall. With the water at high-tide level all evidence of leakage was cov? ered up. but It is the opinion of the enclneers thnt. While the weight of the water within the hi? losuro | will prevent any bnlRinc of tho walls by tho proa*? | vire of water on the outside, the att?mp' to pump OUt the dock before preventive measures arc taken would result in disaster No explanations of th? presence of the water heyond those already giv??.! have been offered, but that the driving of BlMOt tpilirig along Ou? eastern edge of the basir, will slot? the flow Is r?-carded as doubtful. A board, O in? sisting ot Cnptaln C. S. ?perry. Clvtl Knclnee-r 1". S. O. White and Naval Constructor HlbhO, Will rmko ?? careful investigation of tho diffleulty, ar.d Commodore K. O. Matthews, chief of the Bureau r,f Yards an.l Do-ks. who hire come from Washington, will also look Into it. It has been raid that aill weeks' time ;,i?,d t*Mt will be sufficient to drive the wall of spiling mentioned, but there Is a possibility that the whole structure, from the inner groove I of the caisson to the ends of tho retaining walls at the entrance, will have to be taken down, the doek heir.?,' BOeorOd frnm damage by nn Inner cais? son. This would cause a delay of four or five months and an expense of at least ?25.00G. The engineers attach no blame to tho contractors -John Gillies, who ???.p? the work, or ? ?- ?. Walsh, who completed it?ord as tho dock has b^en accepted by the Governine it from the hands of the latter firm, any work (ione now will be on a new contract. The bh.me for the whole tronido Is laid at the door of those? responsible for the se? lection of the s'to, as It waj well known that the ground Is of a sponey nature, almost a quhksand. and that the old timbor basin of the yard, where live oak was kept under water for preservation, cam?? to wjihin ihiny feet of tho edge of the liti? marking the border of the present structure. When the exeavatlons were first made three different rows of sheet spiling were found, and as two <>f them were within tl?.?? lines of the dock they were removed, but the- third one was expected to aid tbe new wall in keeping water away from the dock. The new spilinz was carried to 0 point ?lightly be? low that called for in tht? contract, but th?? seepage, so it Is said, has be. ? at work ?ver since forcing Its way through, until a passage had been made euffieiently large to overcome the resisting powers of the walls, with the result that something had to give way. That the walls, whil?? not keeping the voter out. were Btrong ?-notigli to withstand tlv? freat strain put upon th. m. and the battle-ship lassaci,metta tret ii"t injured, is counted hy those who have watched the dock as one of the best pieces of ge.od fnrtune whioh could have been wished for after the leaka started. The tralnlng-ahlp Alliance was floated out of Drydock No. 2 yesterday noon and will 1.'? pre? pared for her svimmer etuis.?. Although no leak? ned made themselves apparent In the older look. | there was ? depth ol water m the door which was not looked on with favor by th?? yard officers, arid It is likely thai thli dock Will alto cine ir, for at? tention at th? hands of the Inspection Hoard. It was not admitted that the Alliance was floated oa this acoount. but it i< kn v.n that there was work to do on her which ?could be done to greeted ad? vantage In th?? elO'^k than out of it. a nei it i> by ro means c?-rtain that there is no danger ot trouble th'-re.

It wa? decided not to n?k the Republican (Y.unty OOfBIBlttOO, which meet!? tc-nlpht in the Johnston Building, to indorse ex-Mayor Se;h Low for tii" Mayoraliy of the t?reater New-York.

The change of plan was prompted hy the opinion of man?, of those most taterooted that it would be tajarte*?* to Mr. Low's lnure.-t.? in pre?? the proper- I in ior.-emem at thla time. Mr. Willis told a Tribune reponer last night that it wa? probable thai ? resolution would b!m be of iti'i l to*nlght a; the meeting ,?' tha County Com? milice, calling for th* appointment of a commit tee to confer ?ritta "i.?.? political sodica known to be do? .?irc.u* of electing aa anti-Tammany afay r.

There 1? no r.ouht that .he would cany Klnga County by ?? comfortable plurality.

"J.< Mr. Low Btrong enough ? Republican to Bull the Republican lender1?'''' "He certain!) la Mr. Low la a Republican, but first of all he la a magnlfleenl citizen, and lhat'B the kind of a man ihe Republicana Will need in nominate In order to secure the support of all the foes of Tammany." "Would Mr. Low he acceptable io Mr. Worth and Mr Buttling and their friends In Kings County?"

A DECISION BT JUSTICE KEOOH ON THF. HALLoT-B< >\KS IN THS WARD-FAIR* CHILD ELECTION CONTEST, The delay in the appointment of committees in the House of Representative;? flgured In the argu? ment of a matter docMsd yesterday hy Justice Keoph of the Puprem.? Court The matter War? a part of the fleht over the election In the XVI t h Congroaa Lustrici tasi fall betsreen William L. Ward and Pen L. Palrchlld. On May 3 Mr PatrchtM applied to Justice Keogb, then Bitting In White Plains, foi a mandamus di? recting the rollce Hoard of Now-Tork (''it> to operi the ballot-boxes in the XVIth Congroaa Districi and inspect the contents. In cas.? thla application should he denied, Mr. Palrchlld asked that the ballot-boxes and their contents he preserved until the contest should he decided hy tht- House of Rep? resentative?. An aSMavtt waa presented by Rogfr M. Sherman, Mr. Patrchlld'a attorney, ?mintr that, owing to the fa^t that Speaker heed had not yet appointed th?? committees of the House of Representatlvee, no ac? tion has been taken on the contest begun hy Mr. Palrchlld. Both candidates were Hepuhllcans. A court order was granted Just previous to tho oleo? tlon of 1896 declarinK Mr. Ward to he the regular R< publican nominee. The affidavit states that Mr. Palrchlld bofiovei his opponent's election to have been due to the fact that his ?ta?us as the regular nominee waa ftced hy this order. The ?'ourt of Appeals, how? ever, has decided that Mr. Ward? name was Me? gaily placed on the ballots OB the regular nominee, ar.d that Mr. Falrchild'.i name should have heen placed In the Republican column. Th?? application for an InSpeCttofl of the ballot-boxes la mad" BO that it may be determined whether Mr. Ward OW/ed his election to the position of hi? nam? in th'? R< puhllean column or to his popularity with the voters. Mr. Sherman Baya that this fact can In ascertained by Inspection, becauOB Mr. Ward's name appeared not only as a Republican, but as an Independen? Mr. Kalrchlld ran as an Independent, and it is urged that a compariso'i of ills vote with Ward's Republican VOte and Independent vote will -eitle the question. Justice Keogh yesterday decided the matter. His opinion In full Is as follows: I think the promisi?n of the eh-ctlon law which Rives a Justice of in.? Supreme Court power to open the baJlot-boa< ? and to examine their en tents mean? that thla may b? done In som,? proper legal proceeding In Which the ? our: can mak?? an effective order.
