?vaid that instead of saying so much about
Lincoln and O rant be thought it would be
more fi'tlng to wonder und conjecture what
they would say and what position they
would take on th?*- gr?at, burning questions
that "now so oppress tie hearts of the
American people" He said:

LIBRARY SITE FOUND FAULTY
Engineers in Brooklyn Say It
Contains Peat Moss Deposits.
i Another disclosure was made yesterday
1 against building th? Hrooklyn Central
Library on the site seie,-,-,,! no.ir tn? reser?
voir at Flatbitsh avenue and Eastern Park?
: Way. Engineers who have been making in
'? '.estimations there have discovered that
there, as elsewhere along the Bark Slope,
j there exist lar?.- .let??.sits of peat moss
Which make the sinking of foundations a
hard and expensive proposition. If the
library is built tlu-re. it was sh?.I, the cost
ol foundations and shoring would be lare I y
in excess of what was estimated, In ign??
rame ?if the peat moss deposits.
The, existence of these deposit-, have ai
rc.-viy ,n;,,le a good deal <>f trouble for i on?
tra-ctors and property owners along the
Slope. Hiiai in certain spot* (he value of the
realty holdings lias been seriously affected
by it. Several houaea In tth street, oppo?
site tlie Methodist Episcopal Hospital, have
had their front wall?? torn out and rebuilt.
<>n account of ti..- underlying foundatlona
settling from that cause and throwing them
out of plumb, in th.- .-as.? of several apart?
ment houaea along 6th and 7th streets the
foundations were found t<> be Insecure be?
causo ??t' t'ie ahlftlng peal moss There are
several houseo in Uarfleld Place to which
clear titles cannot be secured because of
the soil conditions.
The contractors at work on the building
of the Sinagogic Beth Klohim. in Eighth
avenue, were forced, after discovering ihe
existence of peat moss on th?- sit?-, to Fink
piles to a depth of twent* feel to Insure
tbe Safety of the edifice
