Senator Neweomb points out a nuiu
b«*r of t<«uic« for a legislative investiga
tion. There :in*. of course, the various
fund* raited for several years by the
bridge cosnpanSca for the p«n»o«» of in
fluencing legislation. To Inquire Into
these would. jHTuaps, l»e *;<»iny inta
"ancient history," from an inquiry into
which tiothliii; In the way of punish
ment would follow-. An inquiry would
be salutary, none the loss. But for those
who, lik** Speaker W:i<i-wortli. insist
that If auytbiug is inquired into it must
l«» within the statute of limitations.
Senator Newcoinb su|i»»est.- the scandal
over the suppression of the public ser
vice N-trSslatioii last year and the year
liofon* in the Assembly, when it was
eharsed thai its fate was controlled by
a cenain i'm|»l««ye of the Assembly. Th's
saute rtujiloye was openly accused by •
xnemU-r of the Assembly of lobbying
for an insurance company. This cliar^i*
was Dover investigated. All this is fresh
enough to dis-comlii those who say that
Albany is i»*forui«l and that nothing
like the AM^CMBfaV incident is pos
*>i!ile in recent years.
Am tlier fresh topi.- that i-halleit*?e«
inrentieatlou is the "printing ring." Th's
i- a bipartisan combination to divide
tlie state printing. Tlie Alldn testimony
, the other day threw Njiue light on one
: side of the combination, but not enough.

An Itigvnlotw defender of Niagara Falls
onco offered the Ironh'al excuse for the
<-omtncrc!allzation of Niagara that the
|K»\v«*r companies when they had thor
oughly "developed" tho rlrer would oc
casionally "turn on the falls" and per
mit the public to poo them as they once
urn*. That i a Rood deal like the cx
<•««.» for the enormous courthouse build
in; tvhka it U proposed to put bark of
th*» rity Hall, namely, that there Is ■
-p.t directly In front of the City Hall
from which the monstrosity will be ln
\Nille. Any one who wanted to know
what New York's best bulldin-; looked
like, as Mr. Flags put it. before It was
nutde to appear as if it had bern
"hatched out" by the big structure be
hind it could ro to that *iH»t and forget
Ihe duntage that had la-en done. This
coihi'sslou to the a*sthetle sense is al
most as great as the "turning on" of
Niagara Tails, say, once a year,
would lie.'
Hut we predict that if a building Is
erected in a«wrdnuce with the present
plan** that *pot will not be b!g enough
to a<Tomraof!ate all the crowds who
wish to have It blotted oat of their
sight This city is growing in more ways
h::m In mere numbers, and some day it
will wish to have Ha chief buildings
nobly grouped in a manner worthy
of its dignity. It it has not already
reached tmch a concept iou of « Ivle pro
prieties that it Is umvilUng to have such
mistakes rei»ealed as the erection of the
postofilce and the Tweed court house in
rity Hall Park it will soon come to ap
preciate the fact that the crowding to
gether of its buildings Irrespective of
artistic eunse<iu<yMvs Is unworthy of a
great ciiy.
The Board of Estimate in taking up
the subject to-day should consider the
question In ■ large way. It n.a> con
tribute toward the evolution of a "civic*
centre" for New York or may ruin it in
it. * Inception by planting an enormous
courthouse In Cttj Hall Park, making
the City Hall itself look diminutive and
blotting the Hall of Records from view.

NEW YORK MANNERS 'GOOD.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: Apropos of the Hopkinson Smith
New York City "Insolence" ;_rldent. the re
cital of a personal experience of some
thirty years afgjM may not be without In
terest. When Mr. Mapleson was manager
at the Academy of Music I purchased two
tickets for a Gefstsr night. With my wife.
I occupied the seats. Shortly before the
curtain rose a man and women presented
therm-elves with credentials fur our sittings,
and, after certain rui!en«ses on the part ot
the woman, it »•».■* found by the manage
ment that we had been provided with tick
ets for another date. Mr. M;i*l< apolo
gizing for the contretemps, offerfl us goats
for a future Gerster night, whk-h we were
unable to accept, and w*. therefore oc
cupied toms very Inferior ones for that
evening. The discourtesy of th" legal
claimants for the se its v.as very noticeable,
but as Mr. Mapleson had treated us with
the utmost consideration the incident ctosed.
The next day, however, »s wo were walklns
on llth street, a gentleman accosted us
and. explaining that he bad been a witness
of the previous evening's unpleasantness,
said that he desired to assure us that
such treatment as we were subjected to
was not usual in New York City, and that
he could not resist the opportunity to up
hold and maintain the fair fame of New
York City residents In their courteous be
havior t-> one and all. and therefore ad-
Cre^»e«l M solely with that end In view.
Subsequently, I discovered that our dis
possessora were but recent Now Yorkers
and entirely unfitted for polite society, even
In the neighborhood from whence they
came.
In conclusion, permit in* to decidedly dis
sent from the criticism of the brilliant but
mistaken Mr. Smith, being quit* sure that
during the !ast thirty yea-s the chief city
of our land has gained rather than loat in
the matter of «• o.i manners. V. I D.

THE PERSONAL TAX BILL.
To the Editor of TIM Tribune.
Sir: In the editorial columns of your
paper, dated March 1-. under tht> title of
"A Measure that Will Help," you state
that . . . "not a voice his b«»en raised
In opposition to the personal tax till."
In rer.ly to this statement I desire to
.'tate that, as a taxpayer and ■ citizen
of New York City. I am opposed M any ad
ditional burden betas placed "iron real es
tate, and. consequently, to the bill exempt-
Ing personal property from taxation.
The real estate at New York City is not
only taxed upon Its full value— l do not
think there is ary other part of the stats
where* the assessed valuation of Its real
estate Is placed at so high a figure— but
If It Is mortgage! it is also taxed upo»
the mortgage, which is called a recording
tax. and these tuxes have to be paid
whether the property M rented, partly rent
ed or not rented It seems to me to be
unjust to put all the tax** upon real
estate, and, of course. th<> burden of mu
nlclja! government upon the tenants.
There is a larije body of citizens In New
York who believe that improved real
estate should not be taxed at all. and many
believe that the system which exists in
some foreign countries, where the bulk a|
taxes In collected from fmSK*J*M and otti^r
municipal privileges, should also prevail
tu-rr for the maintenance of the adminis
tration of th© city government.
The owners of personal property < upht
to be wealthy enough to pay their proper
amount of taxes, and not shift it all on the
property owners. The tenant of the poorer
classes of houses cannot well afford to
part with even a m:all nattßM of their
scanty earnings to exempt tax dodgers and
others who fall to pay their Just taxes un
personal property by their claim of resi
dence out of the city or some other subter

SOME CLEVELAND MYTHOLOGY.
To the Editor of Th-> Tribune.
Sir: In this morning's Tribune appears
an Item entitled "CaldwetTs Out Elm
Goes." which contains one statement mak
ing severe demands upon the Imagination
of your Informant and his readers. The
eta was one of a large group on the
Grover house lawn, and from" its size mlsht
easily have been planted by tho Rev.
Stephen <; rover, the owner of the place and
paMor of the Presbyterian Church, who
died In IS2S.
Uut it Is extrimely doubtful if "under
It ex-President Cleveland, who was *jasn*>l
for Mr. trover. s;*nt many a pleasant
hour when v. boy." Mr Cleveland was
about three and a half years aM when
his father resigned the pastorate In the
autumn of IS!'. As the manse v.as ,i
quarter of a mil* away and the old elm
stood on the brink of a poml which has
Since been tilled In. It is hardly probable
that the future President spent much time
"under' what must have teen at that time
a small sapling.
This Is not a matter of supreme Im
portance, but may be of Interest to the
sentimentally inclined who have indulged
In much erroneous information regarding
Grover Cleveland ami the place of bis birth.
A few years ago a reporter for one of the
New York papers wrote a column or more
about the house where Mr. Cleveland was
born, and the urtlvle. wai reprint*! in full
In a. laeal weekly, which failed to reeo^
nlxe the description given as that of th*
Grover house, and not Mr. Cleveland's
birthplace at all

REICHSTAG UPKutl!
Conservative Issues Open Chal
lenge to Three Members.
Berlin. March 17.— Herr Ton Oldenburg.
Conservative-Agrarian, who on January 39
almost brought about a riot In th* Reichstag
when, during the discussion or the Em
peror's prerogatives, he declared that his
majesty had the right at any time to order
a lieutenant and ten men to close the cham
ber, stirred things up again to-day.
Replying to an Inquiry by Oldenburg-. Gen
«ral Gebaattel. Bavarian military member
«>f the Federal Council, explained that th*
Bavarian War Minister, who had desig
nated Oldenburg's reference to th* necessity
for absolute government a* well as hi*
sneering remark concerning* the conduct of
the Bavarian* at the bait* of Rosbuch a*
"tasteless and tactless." had not Intended
to Insult Herr Oldenburg. Oldanburpr ex
pressed satisfaction with this explanation.
The Progressists. Mueller. Meinlngen and
Haussmann. and the Socialist member.
H»-rr Nosfce. twitted Oldenburg on the
rebuke which he had been obliged to
■walls***.
At thts Oldenburg declared that none of
the four members who had attacked him
had any idea of personal honor. The So
cialists, Liberals and Radicals rose In their
seats and shouted at th* top of their voices
that Oldenburg be called t«> order. At nr#t
Vice-president Spahn contented himself
with merely rebuking the offending mem
ber, but this did not satisfy the house, and
angry ■ its* for an enforcement of the rules
continued for several minute.'. Finally the
presiding officer called Oldenburg to order
and the Incident wan dropped.
Later In the session tho disorder was re
newed, and culminated virtually In an open
challenge to a duel from Oldenburg. When
V:: Wlemer. the Progressive member. aske.l
dM Conservatives for a declaration of
wliether they agreed with Oldenburg* con
duct Herr yon Normann replied that the
Conservatives did cot agree to Oldenburg's
utte rances, which, however, they considered
had been provoked by ether members.
Oldenburg then arose and shouted. "Rude
ness calls forth rudeness. I am at the dis
posal of Mueller. Melningcn and Hauss
mann at any time."
Amid the din that followed could be dls
tin»cuNhed the voice of Haussmann. who
crted: "Such a challenge to a duel ha*
never been heard in the Reichstag before.
It *hows how Oldenburg degrades and de
moralize* the ton* of tho house. His con
duct Is unworthy/*
Amid much disorder the chamber ad
