Alderman Campbell Urges Pur
chase of More Land by City.
Alderman Campbell, chairman of the
committee on parks, playgrounds and
schools of the New York City Commission
or. Congestion of Population, has prepared
a. report, In which he shows increases in
the valuation of land owned by the city
Bu:ce the "War of ISI2.
The- paper, which indicate? that the city's
land holdings have grown in value by leaps
and bounds, was mad' from figures fur
nished el the Controller's oSice and by the
Department of Taxes and Assessments. It
says that out of MS sites purchased by
Now York City. B7 have shown an increase
of from 20 to 2.of«> per cent.
In orrirr to show how the values in cer
tain sections have jumped skyward. Mr
Campbell compares those- of the Ml on

be sold for $13 ST.- That on -which the
Brooklyn siliiiii is built was purchased
lor CD cents a square foot in 1569. In 1306
it was valued at $7 16.
The alderman advocates the purchase of
land by the city, and tells of several Euro
pean municipalities ! which own property.
rim. he says, owns nearly one-tenth of
the ground within its limits, and Frank
fort-on-Main owns about one-half of the
real estate inside of its boundaries.
The report also says that Brooklyn has
one acre of park space for every 1.574 per
sons It recommends that at -least thirty
square feet of room be- reserved for each,

MONDAY,
CITY MAKES BIS SAVING
Appropriation for City Record
Will Show Large Reduction.
FROM $350,000 TO $210,000
Decrease Effected by Following-
Investigating Commission's
Recommendations. *
Announcement was made yesterday that
on the City Record appropriation the city
will save $140,000 in 1911. as against the ap
propriation of the present year, which was
$350,000. David Ferguson, supervisor of the
City Record, expects to keep the work up
to the standard on $210,000. The saving has
teen effected by following the recommenda
tions of the investigating commission ap
pointed by the Mayor.
"Mr. Ferguson, do you find from your ex
perience in the office and Ha operations that
the criticisms of the commission were jus
tified?" the new supervisor was aßked.
"I certainly do. he replied. "I think the
report of the commission stated a saving
of approximately $400,000 a year could be
effected. I think that the waste in 1909 was
nearer |MuM than 5400.000. I also think
that the prices paid by this office for the
Fix months from July 1 to December U,
IMO. wiil prove that $t*v>.onn wap wasted In
1909. and would have been wasted in 1910 if
■ halt had not been called by Mayor Oav
nor fo!V>winjt his receipt of the commis
sion's rep
Mass of Illegal Stuff Printed.
All along the line gross waste has been
revealed, and when the new contracts are
made much wast« that cannot be ptopped
while they are in force will bo cut off.
Under the direction of Supervisor Fergu
son, backed by Mayor Gaynor. the cost of
the City Record has come down an average
of $iv» a day. all due to making depart
ments keep their stuff down to what the
charter requires shall be printed. It was
discovered that a great, mass of stuff had
been primed that was absolutely Illegal.
For instance, there were the minutes of
the Board of Health, the Public Service
Commission. the trustees of Believue and
Allied Hospitals and other things, which
had been printed a' great expense to the
public. The charter provision states that
only brief extracts of Bach minutes shall
be printed, including the minutes of the
Board of Aldermen. The savins; is running
now $250 a day, or SUM a week, on the City
Record, which will be close to $75.<vifi a year,
and that will be effected merely by elimi
nating from its columns the vast amounts
of illegal stuff that had been printed in
them under the old order of things.
There also has been a large paving on all
the supplements that have been issued since
July 1. On the civil list supplement, there
was a saving of between $3,500 and $4,000.
"That saving was* effected simply by fol
lowing the suggestions of the. commission
and by having- it printed in brevier instead
of in nonpareil type." Supervisor Ferguson
said. "There are 2fi.nort ems on a nonpa
reil page and 11.220 on a brevier page.
We made thr- big saving by eliminating the
•faf of which the commission had com
plained. In fact, we have eliminated every
possible bit of 'fat' from the City Rec
ord. "We have made the contractors set
it as close as anybody on earth could set it.
They have carried out our Instructions with
out the lecst bit of friction. We have- had
no trouble with Brown & Co."
Tt was said, however, that *' tl -o'iet-
Brown & Co have fallen into the new order
of things without friction, the Pratt com
pany has not been so prone to fall into line
without compulsion being exercised.
"On the assessed valuation supplement to
the City Record last year the cost to
the <~.ity was $58.6*0.** Supervisor Ferguson
continued "This year it will cost in the
neighborhood of $21. "f0. We haven't all
the sections in yet. The last one will be in
this week. I^ast rear II contained 3.690
pages of nonpareil, outrageously padded, at
an average of SIT. XT a pasre. This year
there will be fewer than 3,100 pages of bre
vier, at a cost of $6 17 a pas'- That makes
a difference of $7 70 a pjse i n favor of the. j
city.
"We tiavo u?ed i larger and eaner type,
and that enormous saving hap been effected
merely (-,.- eliminatin(r the "fat' and havine
this matter set honestly. The volume of
n;attrr in this supplement is greater this
year than ever brforo. and we are using:
larger type for i*. and yet the list covers
600 fewer pagrs than it did last year and
»■< got the work don» for less than half
what it cost before. The Mayor's commis
sion had some sample pages set up. showing
•what could be effected in the way of savins,
and those sample pages have been of the
greatest value to us in having this supple
ment printed honestly."
Saving of $62,000 in One Item.
Tnere also will be a saving in printing
th*> departmental uitlnistrn Last year
they cost more ; than $70,000. Supervisor
Foriruson says he thinks that this year
they will cost less than $S.OOO.
"That saving will be due to this." the
Supervisor said "I^a-st year, in addition
to printing those estimates in the special
s-upp'ement to the City Record, they also
wore printer! in pamphlet form and also
• i book form for the Board of Estimate
in five volumes at a cost of $30,000. They
also were printed in five volumes for the
Board of Aldermen at a cost of $12,000.
There was the same wasteful way of set
ting type all the way throuch the City
Record and In the books. There was a
\ast quantity of •phat,' and they were set
in nonpareil and padded out in every con
ceivable way. This year they are to be
In brevier, with no "phat," and they are
only Romp to be printed in the City Rec
ord. Instead of givlnp the Board of Esti
mate and the Board of Aldermen separate
volumes 1 am having five hundred extra
copies of the City Record supplement
printed, and they will be bound in cloth
and man Ha for the Board of Estimate and
the Board of Aldermen."
Getting competition on the city printing
also has resulted in a stupendous saving.
The cost of composition has been cut SO per
cent on every page. It is asserted by Su
pervisor Ferguson that in instances the
cost of an identical thing was 600 per cent
more last year than it has been this year.
"For instance, let us take the printing
of the annual report of the Department of
Public Charities." Ferguson continued.
"Last year that oast C3ST IO, printed in
book form. "This year, under competition,
the cost will be $54SSO. The paper is as
good and the report shows the Bam*) num
ber of cuts. We had the department con
dense th« report to some extent and
eliminate useless matter. The printing of
the annual report of the Fire Department
cost last year Ji.241 20. This year the cost
is £22."
A ig saving also has been effected on
the printing of requisitions that are sent
in to the City Record office by the depart
ments •every day.
"Under the old order they never had real
competitive bidding on them."' Supervisor
Ferguson said. '"Hie work was allotted to
different printers. They went through th*
form of sjsttteg competitive bids, but they
were always collusive. The Pratt company
got all the printing for the Health De
partment. The amount of printing the De
partment of Health has done in a yaamr is so
vast it would choke an elephant. The
Brown company would go through the form
of bidding againnt the Pratt company, but
its bid« ... never lower then thone of the
Pratt company. The Wynkoor. rlallenbeck
£ Crawford company also would tid ou
that work for the Health Department, but
never would underbid the Pratt company.
"There was collusive bidding all the way
through- Now we. have from eight to
twenty bidders on every printing requisi
tion that compß in here, and it is the- ftercost
kind of bidding, too. For instance, here is
an example: In August. 1909, there was a
requisition from the. Health Department for
■•• •-■• physical examination blanks. Tha
Pratt company got the job for SMB. ts
July this year there was a requisition from
the Health Department for the same num
ber of blanks. There was not a change in
The nature of the order. I had eight bidders
on that requisition. The Pratt company
was the lowest bidder and its bid was $sfio
for the identical work for which it previ
ously had charged $1,822. It merely goes to
show the difference between collusive bid
dine and genuine bidding, and that the
Pratt conroany made an extortionate profit
of about BUM on the requisition of Wto.
"That is simply a typical case of the re
pult of getting genuine competitive bid
ding, when you figure that the printing
last year cost the city $SSL\OOO. exclusive of
printing the city Revord. In this case
I have cited the price was 'JSO per cent
higher In August. IMB, than It was in July.
1910. with the same printers doing the
work. But even if there were a saving of
30 per cent on printing amounting to $900.
000 in round figures, the saving would be
$270,000. and that is .lust about what the
saving resulting from the new order of
things will be on that line of work. In
other words, the printing this year, wltn
only six months of genuine competition.
shows that under competitive bidding, less
than $rtjf».nno has been spen* this year, as
against $833,000 last year, on the printing.
We also are getting genuine competitive
bidding on the. blank books, and there will
be a substantial saving in that branch of
the, work of this ofn<e."
Investigation convinces Supervisor Fer
guson that the waste heretofore was not
nearly, so large in the buying of blank
books as in the printing- Notwithstanding
that, where $154,000 was spent for blank
books last year, there will be about 5145,000
spent for blank books this year, with only
six months of real competitive bidding ef
fective to bring about that saving.
"Great savins also is being effected In
the grades of papers used," Supervisor
Ferguson added. "'Before steps were taken
to reform the office and save money it was
the practice to print a!! manner of forms
on exceedingly expensive papers, and to
use such expensive papers for printing
forms that had only a fugitive value in
the departments and that were not per
manent records The- great savin? has
b*»en effected by using cheaper paper for
all such fugitive forms. Of course, any
permanent record deserves the best kind
of paper that can be erven to it. and it
has been the policy of this administration
of the City Record office, to give to the de
partments the best papers for everything
that is to bA a permanent record. But for
other forms, instead of giving a accent
paper we give a paper that costs 10 cents
a pound, and it serves the purpose just as
well as a higher priced paper."
The work of reforming the department
is still going, on along the. lines of sug
gestion made by the Mayor's commission
and on other lines which have suggested
themselves to Supervisor Ferguson, who is
being backed by the Mayor

There is no "one correct
style" in Derbies.
There is a general trend; but
many blocks and wide variety of
proportions are needed to be
comingly fit every man.
So even though such fine
Derbies bear our own name,
we're glad to have the exclusive
New York sale of these other
Derbies from famous makers—
the "Stetson Special," the
'Knapp-Felt Preferred." the
"Victor Jay" English hats.
Among the brightest spots in
our Fall clothing are the Harris
tweeds, made m Scotland, and
named from the Isle of Harris,
where such cloths were first
made.
Suits, overcoats and motor
ing coats all include some of
these famous fabrics.
We might add that we have
a few suits of the old-fashioned
handwoven Harris tweeds —
very few because it's almost
impossible in handweaving to
get two pieces alike.
