CMASGEB SEEDED IS THE WORKHOUSE,
THB GRAND .TTRT MAKES RECVnfMBND.VnONS IN
A PRESENTMENT— NO ACTION ON BROOK
LTK RAPID TRANSIT RtTMOHa.
Judge McMahon, in Part I of General Sessions,
yesterday afternoon dismissed the Grand Jury
after complimenting it upon its industry and zeal.
in disposing of 521 cases and returning 351 indict
ments, which Is said to have beaten all records for
many months. ' »•
This Is the Grand Jury that was anxious to take
up the alleged malicious rumors regarding the
Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company. The December
Grand Jury made a presentment in the case, and
Judge McMahon in charging th© January Grand
Jury instructed it to look Into the matter, but the
District Attorney was not ready with the evidence,
and the Investigation goes over to the February
The Grand Jury made A *uresentm.ent on the
penal Institutions on Black-well's ls!and. praising
the work of Commissioner' Lantry and Warden
Fallon of the penitentiary, and Warden Fox of
the workhouse. Th« sanitary and disciplinary
arrangements of the prison proper are. in the opin
ion of the Grand Jury, In keeping Tsrith the best
modern methods, and the addition of a new wing
has done away with the necessity of putting more
than one prisoner in a cell.
The workhouaa the^Grand Jury considers re
markably clean and wen managed," although It is
so overcrowded that often four persons are con
fined in one cell, but the Grand Jury feels that
there should be some radical chance made, both
with respect to the persona who are committed to
it and also with respect to their treatment. On
this subject the presentment says:
The term '"workhouse" as applied -to that institu
tion Is a misnomer, because a large majority of the
unfortunates who are committed to that institution
are enfeebled, eick, maimed, helplegs and mentally
defected persons, who should not be subjected to
imprisonment of any sort, and who are more suit
able subjects for a hospital or almshouse than for
a correctional Institution. It is contrary to every
principle of civilized administration that such a
class of persons for no recognzed offence should be
confined In a prison behind baxa and thrown In
constant contact and association "with some of the
most depraved classes in our community. Our in
formation is that the greatest number of Inmates
of rhe workhouse are committed there for rro crime,
unless poverty can be so designated, because the
real ground of their commitment Is their age or
physical debility, or inability to provide for their
Those who survive such confinement return to
the city and, having no home, are again turned
loose upon the community, are taker, by the police
to the nearest magistrate, who. through a. sincere
desire to afford some provision for them, and hav
ing no other place to commit them to. sentences
them to the workhouse.
The law should be changed, and discretionary
powers should be vested in the Commissioner of
Correction to make proper disposition of enfeebled
or agred vagrants unable to perform manual labor
by transferring th-m to the Department of Chari
ties, so that none except offenders against the law
should be detained ln the vorkhouse, and there
undergo a Just punishment of hard labor as the
Silver loving cups were presented to James S.
Curry the foreman of the Grand Jury, and to the

HE OKKKRS TO SUPPLY WATER TAKEN
KKO.M THE MISSOURI EIGHTY MILES
ABOVE THE CITY.
P. H. Flynn. the well known -ontrartor of
Brooklyn, who is inteitsted In s scheme to supply
water for S;. Lonio, was quoted yesterday after
noon as follows:
I fcceame 'aterested in a scheme to generate
eipctri'.'liy by -.vater power and supply St. Louis
with ater and electno power some i;m> aga For
this t/-;rpos«s •>.•* picked out me only available spot
neur St. Louis, about eighty mil. from the city.
It Is on tho Missouri River, ana therefore above
th« point where the sewage of Chicago empties
into the Mississippi Hiver through the Chicago
Canal, which was recently opened. This eewage
Into the Mississippi River hns caused considerable
anxiety in tho sities along the Mississippi River.
At present St. Louts uses aboal sixty million gal
lona of water a day. anU a;l the water has to be
ti:t«red before It is used. Since Chicago has pol-
I'tted the water the city wants to go to a higher
source for [ts water. The proposition which I have
mo.ie is to give them as much water as they want
up to three hundred million gallons a day from
our power plant supply. St. Louis pays to-day $70
for rach one million gallons of water. We offer
the city water at the rate of $60 for each one
mill'oti gallons consumed, 30 that the city woatd
sav<3 a good deal of mot;ey nnd would get a supply
wh'ch would meet the demands of the growth of
the city. We make the further proposition that
the city can buy the system at any time f»r
$15.000.0<i0. if st. Louis accepts our offer we will build
two strel conduits for the eighty miles to the
point of supply. Tnia would cost about 55.000.000.
The building of our dam for the water plant and
the ptvuring of the rights would Involve a matter
of P. 000.000. or thereabouts. We would use the
fall of the water for the generation of electricity
and we would expert iO supply power for the big
factories in Bt. Louis and the neighborhood. The
mutter has not yet been officially taken up by tne
people of St. Louis, but I expect that it will be
ln a few days.
SUFFOLK COUXTT AROUSED.
PROTESTS AGAINST BROOKLYN'S EFFORT
TO GET WATER WITHIN ITS LIMITS.
Albany. Jan. 31.— A large delegation of residents
of Suffolk County appeared before the Judiciary
Committee of the Senate this afternoon, to protest
against the repeal of a bill passe dthree years ago
to prevent the Borough of Brooklyn from Invad
lng the streams of Suffolk County for Its water
supply. M. T. Griffin, an attorney, was the spokes
man for the party and asserted that to permit
Brooklyn to divert. . the water of . these .streams
would destroy the oy»ter Industry* of South Bay
upon which so many families were dependent for
a livelihood. He said that these streams would af
ford no permanent supply for Brooklyn, and that
both New-York and Brooklyn would eventually
have to go to the Adirondacks or the Great Lakes
for their supply.
Assemblj-man Baun also spoke in opposition to
the repeal, asserting- that It would permit Brooklyn
to pump the vitals out of their property. This, he
said, was what had been done in Queens County,
and there could be no adequate compensation for
suih destruction of their property. He asserted
that there was no immediate necessity for ai addi
tior.al water Bupply in Brooklyn, and this proposed
repeal was but a scheme of a band of speculators.
President Grout of the Borough nf Brooklyn ap
peared as the Ivocate of the repeal. He presented
mapa showing the watershed from which it was de-
Bired to take the water, and said there was. do
possible Injury to the property, because it was in
tended to take only the surplus water. He said
the Population of the (Hatrict affected was only
2G.000, and they were setting up their interests
against all the people of Brooklyn. He ptlrr«d up a
spirited resentment among the Suffolk County rep
resentatives by his assertion that the law which
It was proposed to repeal was In the Interest of the
Ramapo company. in that It prevented them from
going east for their water supply and compelled ,
them to go across the East River into the Hamapo
territory. Neither New-York nor Brooklyn could
afford to go "o the Adiror.dacks for their W3ter
supply and if they ever did it would have to be
done by the State. To get the water from th<»
Ramapo territory would Involve an outlay of $100
000.000 for construction of the viaduct Whj the
who cost of the proposed system on Lon*? Island
would be but about $25,000,000. The repeal of -his
law, he said, would solve the problem of a water
supply for both Xew-York and Brooklyn for at
least twenty-five y«an "
No definite action was taken by the committee.

Fully a baker's dozen of good men and true
are willing to fill the two vacancies which will
occur in the State Board of Assessors. The term
of Robert S. Green will expire on March 2 and
that nf Stephen J. Meeker on M.irch 10. Among
the most prominent candidates for the succes
sion are Ex-Senator Frederick C. Marsh, of
Elizabeth: General Louis Perrine. of Trenton,
and Herman Schalk. <* Newark. The others are
scattered about over various parts of the State,
and of late have not been urging their prefer
ence, for the reason that it has become apparent
that their prospects of success are hardly worth
It is known that the Governor has found it
difficult to see his way dear to make a change
from the present incumbents. From his well
known intimacy socially with ex-Senator Marsh
It can safely be said that he has looked with a
gTeat deal of. favor upon his candidacy. Nobody
Is more willln - than Governor Voorhees to do
a favor for an old friend, an as the appoint

the influential friend." of the late Governor
Green have urged the reappointment of his »on
for the sake of his father. These requests have
been made In such a way and so earnestly,
upon the ground that Mr Green has b«en a
faithful and efficient member of the Board, in
addition to the other claim, that the Governor
feels that he cannot well, or with propriety.
Ignore them. Aa to Mr Meeker, he is regarded
as a clean and efficient member, and his reap
pointment is quite as earnestly urged as that
of Mr. Green. It Is therefore not af all prob
able that there will be any change in th*> makeup
of the Board. ♦
When, through the efforts of Congressman
Hcwell. an appropriation of $10O,0<lO was securer]
for the erection of a new postofflce building at
Xew-Brunswlck, there was much rejoicing in
that staid old city Of" course, there wa3 some
disagreement as to th» selection of the proper
place f or the building, ><ut that was final:-. over
come, and the choice was made. The purchase
price was agreed upon, and the matter was all
done but finishing, so to speak. The Govern
ment was not. however, ready to pay over the
money until a search of the records revealed that
the title to the realty was clear. Then there
was more trouble, and United States District At
torney Rice was necessarily mixed up in it. He
was obliged to report that the owners of the
site selected for the office building would
not pay the costs of the search. It is admitted
by good judges of real estate, even inclusive, as
Is said, of those who have real estate to sell to
the Government If it should change its intention
and decide to select another location, that the
owners of the site selected obtained a good round
sum for the realty chosen, and the contention of
the Government is that they ought to pay the
costs of the search. Bur they say that they
will not pay these costs, and there the matter for
the prewnt rests. The fact that it Is resting
does not. however, prevent the contest for the
office of postmaster going forward as briskly as
ever between Mr. Russell. Mr. Stillman. Mr.
Banker and others. In the mean time what
Representative Howell thinks of the general
muddle and the reams of petitlous which h» is
receiving he is wisely keeping to himself, doubt
less, as his friend Robert Carson says, because
he is unfamiliar with the supple possibilities
of the English tongue.
