"Hie complaint of the Civil Service Reform As
sociation rresents alienations of fact which the

conclusions suggested |n the complaint, feels

The resolution declares among; other things

In th«- offi-Mal acts and conduct of said corpmi"=
tioners; that the present system of appointing
sp entirely new commission by an Incoming ad
ministration is in principle and practice detri
mental to the best service, in that it deprives
the various commissions of the oxi>erienee and
knowledge gained by th" outgoing commission
ers; that an inmrninc administration should not
change the commission except for cause or as
term? expire."
Pre.^ident MlUlken and Focrotary Firdseye.of

HOW TO BUILD SUBWAYS.
City Club Would Tax Property Di
recently Benefited by Lines.
A solution of the problem of now to extend the
subway and other rapid transit systems in New
York was submitted yesterday to the Board of Ks
timate and Apportionment by the City Club. The
plan, which has been suggested before. Is to assess
the cost of m rapid transit routes upon the prop
erly benefited by the Improvement.
Krom investigations conducted by the City Club,
the transit committee of the organization. has come
to the conclusion that the cost of the present sub
way could have been mere than paid for by the In
creases in valuations which have resulted ,from the
building of the road. The memorandum says:
For many years the city baa deemed it just to
assess upon auutting property the cost of opening
streets and building sewers. The theory or Mien m
tax upr.n property is that it receives almost the
exclusive !>.-nt-iu :r.r.i the construction of a street
or sewer adjacent to it. The question naturally
arises, does not a transit line, by the benefit that
it confers, fall In the same class as new streets
and severs? If i street railroad or rapid transit
line be extended into an undeveloped territory, is
it not built primarily for the purpose ol furnishing
transit facilities to future residents In that sec
tion? People v.ill bay this property primarily be
cause it has (food transit facilities, and the value
placed upon it is largely based upon its accessl
l.iliiv On this ground the Cub points out that the
■section benefited should pay for the improvement.
instead of receiving a present, as it were, iroui

TOR MODEL PENITENTIARY, $2,500,000.
Board of Estimate Makes Appropriation
Despite McGowan and Ahearn,
Despite opposition from President M •■ rowan and
Borough President Lhearn. at the meeting of the
Board of ' Estimate yesterday, a communication
from the Commissioner of Correction, carrying an
appropriation <>f $2.250.t>» In corporate stock toward
the erection of the new model penitentiary on
Riker's Island, was brought up.
"Is It still proposed to appropriate four millions?"
asked President MeG wan. •Yes," he was told
by tl;^ Mayor.
'Then 1 am opposed," said Mr. SlcGowan. There
were enough votes to carry it.
After the meeting President McGowan said: "I
based my objection to the •'.""■' expenditure for
a ik-w penitentiary upon the fact that the State of
New York is building a new penitentiary for
J2.000.000. In these times <> f general financial stress,
and when there is some question as to the posi
ticn of the city's finances, 1 think 14,000,000 is too
much to spend for a penal institution of this sort."

twenty-throe years old. of No. 69 West 36th strc-t.
and Margaret St. Clair. twenty-five years old. of

wounds.
From a letter found in the pocket of Kearn the
police believe that he shot the woman and then
attempted to commit suicide. Ho told in the letter

let had entered Kearn's head, just behind the right
ear, and another had struck the youn; woman In
the right breast. They were taken to the Pres
byterian Hospital, where it was said neither was
seriously injured.
The young woman told the police that Kearn was
employed as head bellboy at the Hotel Breslln and
that she had been a telephone operator there, but
had been discharged recently.
The tetter found on Kearn was addressed to Mrs.
Jack McGlynn, of No. (38 38th street, Oakland.
Cat. In it was a clipping from a morning paper.
in which a telephone pin was referr ■'. to as
"Trixpy Stevens." The capping indicated that she
was employed as operator at the »tel Breslin.
and the police think this is the girl found with
him.
An unaddressed Letter in Kearn's pocket directed
whoever found his body to turn over his effects to
Mrs. Jack McGlynn.
At the Hotel Breslin it was Eaid that Kearn had
been employed there up to a month ago as cap
tain of the bellboys. No Margaret St. Clalr was
known at the hotel, but it was said that "Trixej
Stevens" was employed there as a I phone oper
ator and that she had worked until 8 o'clock last
night. -»•- "
At No 69 West 3Gth street Mrs. J. Anderson,
who runs th» house, said that Kearn had lived
there for about ten weeks, and that on numerous
occasions he had told her that he was Infatuated
with a girl by the name of Stevens who was em
ployed at the Hotel Breslin as a telephone operator,
but that he was married and nad a wife and fam
ily in Chicago.
/William Uowdra, a doorman at the Hotel Bres
lin, said that Kearn was Infatuated with the
Stevens girl and had been for some tim».
At No. 63 West ;-9th street; where the girl lived,
i! was said that she had been there about four
months, but that nothing was known about her.

AIR AS A (rYROSCOPE
Principle Involved in Mr. Herring's
New Aeroplane.
A. M. Herring lias made known for the first
time sompthin^ of the principle involved in his
system of automatic equilibrium, which la probably
the most important item of interest in connection
with the aeroplane which he will begin to assemble)
at Fort Myer, Virginia, on October 1". preparatory
to testing for the government.
Mr. Herring was found in his shop, at No. 1381
Broadway, balancing up and tf>stin?? the propellers,
which, are considerably smaller than those used
by the Wright brothers. A portion of the regru
latiner mechanism was also on view. It is a pecul
iar piece of mechanism in that it makes use of a
property of the air that nearly all scientists have
overlooked. According to Mr. Herring, the current
< f air following over the curved surfaces of the aero
planes possesses pronounced gyroscopic properties.
Just as if this current of air were part of the
rim of r;n enormous flywheel of great weight. It
is, he said, mainly from the forces and movements
of this gyroscopic mass that the way is found
to keen the machine on a level keel through all
sorts of disturbances.
Mr Herring said that he had been consulted by
Lieutenant Sweet, of ft.'- burean of pqulpmpnt of
the navy. "Aeroplanes will b«> the eyes of battle
ships instead of a weai said, In answer to
,i question as to the utility of flylns machines In
