TAMMANY AT GAS TRUST.
ELECTION DAY COMING. Dclany Asks $50,000 to Fight Pay ment of City's Bills. Mayer McClellan. Charles F. Murphy and the Corporation Counsel suddenly discovered yesterday that It •was about tim« to say ami do something www about and to the Consolidated <las Com pany. After solemn consultation it was decided to ask the. Board of K«=timate and Apportionment and the Board of Aldermen for a special appro priation of $50,000 with which to hire exports to r:rht the payment of the city's lighting hills, whloh the Mayor says will soon aggregate t1£,000,000. This Is the favorite Tammany method of fighting an abUM these days-set an appropriation and ap pcir.t a commission, and then forget about it all. la tIM Hearst camp this method is unf^ollncly d© ecribed as the "hot air treatment. Tlia Hearst me-, last ntght made merry over the solicitude of the McCtaUan administration for the city's rights, and ordered their young men to work on Mayor McCteUaiTs record on the East River Gas bill and ttM Murphy contract for the Astoria gas works. Th- Bolkdtude of th* City Hall for the rights of the city was solemnly $et forth at length yester day In a letter by Corporation Counsel Delany to the Mayor. Mr. Delany p.ivk; Since the la?t provisional estimate of this de partment ti h< acted u;-on by the Board of Esti mate a situation ;ias arisen to meet which the city ma have to incur an additional expense not otberw - provide* for. and I therefore submit the rh._ts to you for appropriate action. Th" claims against the city for ih« service of gas sr.d electric ligin for 1508, IS<>4 and l? 05 exclusive Of Interest thereon, aggregate 18^123,460 76. The city has refused payment of these claims, and suits bave -on brought to enforce •. and these suits the city has resist. -.1. Some of th« cases will soon he reached for trial •ad because of the nature of the city's doience it ■will be necessary for me to engage competent en ginMTS thoroughly familiar with tiiis special busi ness for export wirji£Bses. As the chief source of employment of - ich men would at rally be the pa? and electric lighting companies, no email diffi culty confronts us. The position tak< by the city will mark a de parture from the atiitude heretofore generally as fumed by municipalit'<?s .i dealing with public ser vice corporations, and it Is therefore of the great est Importance that it should, if possible, be sus tained from th* 3 outset. To do so will involve a long and determined str-iggle in the courts. The caff-? will be conducted by this office without any additional expense, and Mr. Burr, my as sistant, is now preparing them for trial, but the city ha> no engineering force -available as experts. nnd will, as explained, have to employ this indis peosabto assistance. The questions raised by th<» answers which I have interposed '■ ill show the necessity of the course I propose. We claim : First — That the companies have formed a com bination for the purpose of controlling and regu latiner. and did control and regulate as a monopoly. the price of gas and electricity, commodities of common use for light and other purposes, and that mcb combination or consolidation is against public ro'iicy. illegal and void. Second— That because of such monopoly there is ro standard or ma #.et price or value for either ess or electricity In the city of New-York, and That th" only manner in which such market value oan be ascertained is to determine the cost of pro duction ar.d distribution, adding thereto a sum sufficient to return a fair profit upon the money actually Invested In the business, with due regard to the hazard Involved. Third— That during the years named, and for • c vera! yrars prior thereto, there has been no com petition for city lighting by gas and electricity, end that the prices bid or charged therefor have been in all cases the same for similar service, and that r.o two companies have bidden for the same service In the same district. Fourth,— the prices charged by the companies for gas and electric lighting are excessive, and B-bove the fair and reasonable value of such com modities and service. Fifth— That no contract existed between the com panies and the city during the year 1903. as to the fair value of the services to be rendered by the paid companies That the proposals issued to all bidders for such year cor.tain the following para graph "30. The Commissioner reserved the right to re ject any and all bid? or estimates, If the Board of Estimate and Apportionment shall determine It for the best Interest of the city so to do " ThjU the Board of Estimate and Apportionment on •'..», recommendation of th» Commissioner of wat>r Supply. Gas and Electricity dated March IS. 1308, aid determine that all bids for public lieht izig should be so rejected, and so resolved, on or about D^vnibfr 4. IMS, and that the said Commis sioner did thereupon reject the companies' bids in or about December 8, 1903, on the ground that the prices charged by the companies ■were unrea sonable and excessive. Sixth— That th« Commissioner of Water Supply. Gas and Electricity bad and has no power to exe cute a contract on behalf of the city of New- York to pay unfair and unreasonable prices for such commodity end service rend^rrd, during the year Z?f4. or at any other time: that because of the un fairness and unr'-asonab'f-ness of the prices charged «-d the comtlsAtion which existed to control and monopolize- th* price of eras and f-lectricity. by di rection of the Mayor all bids for gas and electrlo lighting for t) ■,« »-► "ir ~i%o wptt> rejected. Seventh— That tl.e companies as public utility cor j«>rations wrrc and are bound to furnish light and Jijrhting service to th» city and are. titled to re ■ over only the fair value of the same, and that the < :ty has at all times been able, ready and willing to settle dafms duly Wed for services rendered and ■ immodities supplied at the reasonable and fair value thereof. We compeH<»<? these companies to continue to serve the city with gas and electric lighting, an 1 irfused to pay them the bi'ls rendered for such ser vJce. forc:r;)r th^-m to Invoke tho aid of the courts where the question will be finally determined as to ■what are the powers and duties of th<-'S* public utility corporations Ii their relations to the city. and what is fair and reasonable compensation for their public ser\-ice to the city. We contend that ft public utility corporation Is a creature of law. *r.<3 has no rights except those conferred upon it by the people, and that the people have the right to so control it as to make it subserve the public Interests. Before these Questions are finally determined in the courts the claims of these companies will probably amount, with Interest, to about $15. ■•■ ■• So that this whol«. situation Is of the tlt mort concern to *he p^-oj.ln of the city. There are pending at the present writing more than twenty actions brought by these companies against the city, in each of which expert testimony will be requirt-d. This department will therefore need an appro priation of $50,000 to properly defend these actions «nd secure the best and highest rharact<=r of ex pert testimony on all the subjects involved, in or der to sustain the position taken by the city In this most important litigation. Mayor SCcdeOan, in answering the letter, pays he will lay the matter oefore the Board of Esti mate at once. MERCY FOR A HAMILTON. President Commutes Sentence of Descendent of Alexander. Washington.

RENEWED ACTIVITY IN BAPTIST CIRCLES — BUILD ING PROGRESS AND PLANS. Another denomination in this city which Is reel in strongly the Increased religious activity this rail is the Baptist, the thirty-fifth anniversary of whose Southern New-York Association was held last week. Several new church buildings are be ins: planned or are In course of construction. All congregations report a renewal of Interest, and many have already begun a winter revival season. A marked example is Epiphany Church, at Marti son-ave. and 6Uh-st., whoso members are rejoicing over the acceptance of a call by the Rev. Dr. Madi son O. Peters. This church had gone Into decline in recent years, and finally placed its building In the market, and it was proposed that th« congre gation disband and unite with the Madison Avenue Baptist Church. When Dr. Peters came to the church a few months ago as a supply. Interest be- THE REV. PR. MADISON C PETERS. Who returns to this city a.s pastor of Epiphany Baptist Church. (Fbot'>Braph by Kockvcod.) pan to revive, till it was decided unanimously to ask him to tako permanent charge. The building has been withdrawn from the market, and all talk of disbanding has been dropped. Last Sunday Dr. Peters received four more mem bers Into the church. In the evening he began a series of sermons on "Marriage and the Home." Each Sunday sees an increased attendance. With the Rev. Dr. Mac Arthur, of Calvary Baptist Church, Dr. Peters has also begun a series of mo«t inps In th« Harlem Opera House. Dr. Peters was for years an active force in New- York church work. He-Is now forty-six years old. He was born in Pennsylvania, and worked his way, against great difficulties, through school and col lege In that State. He took his seminary course In Tiffin. Ohio, and began active work as a mis sionary in Indiana and Ottawa. At the age of twenty-four he was called" 10 one of the oldest Presbyterian churches In Philadelphia. At twenty nine he came to the Bloomingdale Reformed Church here, He resigned In 1839 because he could no longer believe in infant baptism, and entered the Baptist ministry as pastor of the Sumner Avenue Church, Brooklyn. He went to Baltimore, in 1302. and later to Philadelphia, where ha remained till ho came to the Epiphany Church. Dr. Peters has attained wide reputation not only as a pulpit orator, but as a lecturer, writer and editor. He has many plans for his new charge and prophesies a brilliant future for the church. Epiphany's sister, the Madison Avenue Church, is also making strides under its new pastor, the Rev. Dr. Tupper. The Young Men's Bible Class, with him as teacher, is showing unusual interest- All departments of the work extended a hearty welcome to Dr. Tupper. Tho Rev. George H. Fer ris, of Calvary Church, New-Haven, has been called to ' the First Church of Philadelphia, to succeed Dr. Tupper. . .... other Baptist pastor, to be welcomed this last week was the Rev. E. T. Banford, who has come to the North Church to be associated with the Rev W. H. Scott. Dr Cortland Myers reports 113 persons baptized at the Baptist Temple In the association^ year. The Mount Morris Baptist Church has been left Without a pastor by the much regretted resigna tion of the Rev. Dr. William C. Bitting; who has accepted a call from the Second Church of St Louis Every effort was marie to set him to recon sider his action. Dr. Billing has been with this church for twenty-two years. He spent the last summer In Europe, and in his absence extensive re pairs were made on the church building. Ground was recently broken for the Creston \venue Church, at ■ Bton-ave. and 189th-st. The church was organized in May, and is the first Eng lish Baptist church organized In The Bronx sinco IS&* Only one part of the church is to bo con structed at the present time. The plan embodies a church with a Beating capacity for five hundred or «ix hundred a Bible school building, or chapel, and a private use with pastor's apartments. The Sunday school building is large enough to accom modate five hundred children, for tiie most part In e<-s>arate classrooms, by means of subdivided gal leries and sectional auditorium, permitting quiet, undisturbed class work and making possible at the same time a general assembly. Several large class rooms for adults and other special classes are also provided. This is the portion of the building that is now being constructed. It will serve for the present, ami probably for several years, as a C The parish house plans embody a primary room and one or two other class or club rooms on the first Hour pastor's apartments on the second and third floors in the front of the building, and excel- accoiomodaUons on the second and third floors in the rear for boys' and girls' club and ciass work.

Mayor McClellan a.«k«?d if Mr. Devine could guar antee that th« board would put aside the money for this purpose lf it was appropriated. Mr. Di vine said that his society would do all it could to have the Board of Education do so.
