Fusion has iiad the courage to conserve this bor? rowing power even at the Cust ot temporanly higher budgets. The longest stride toward municipal own ership was taken by the present city adminiatration when it a.iopted the pay-as-you-go policy. which by put ting an aad to borrowiag for non produetira lmprovemenis. will grad ually pro.luce a margin of credit suf licient to allow the city to aco.uire the most vital of its public utilitiea.

Fusion will continue to press the ?.<?? for home rule lagifllatiOB. Fusion is eommittod to the com preheiisive development of the Pari Of New York. In the last four y.-ai - it has adiled more dockage than any other prerioua admiBiatratioa. An essential detail of BBcfa relopmeat is the relocation of the New Vurk Central Railroad along the West Sido of the Ur.roiiijh of Man hattan. For the sake of the city's lood supply. for the sake of its manufacturi'ng supremacy, and for the protaction of its eitiaaaa on the public highways, a solution must be found and found without delay. Fusion will cooperute with the Public Benriea Comaaiaaloa to tin.l such a solution, and failing, to ex ercise effective compulsion on the company. Fusion believes ln the most liberal degree of borough autonomy co:isi-> tcflt with etfi'ctive organization and aflirieeablfl goTerBaaeaT, Must of the eity departmenta should have m each borough eapable repreeentatirea with auffieient authority to deal with loeal queationa for tbe convenience of the citizana of the hoiough.

Hylan, their candl date for the highent offlce in the gtftl of the municipality, is not to be truat td on hia feet. If aome rude person ikeald heckle him they fear for thej consequencca. Strar.gely enough, Judge Hylan seems I antirely in gympathy with their lack of ( ror.fidonce in hia forensic, not to say I intellectual, ability. He has HttlC con Bdeaee in it himgelf. The popping of , questionR in public, or even when two j or three are gathered together, is to . him like the bursting of shrapnel. It ronfounds him, it strikes him dumb. It ( disorgar.iz.es him to such a degree that only privaey, repose and reflection can bring him back to the point of focus- j sing properly on the subject under dis eaaaloa. He hai made elear more than once gii.ee his designation for Mayor hig diataate for eroae-examiaatioB.

Rut not so Mr. Hylan, the white hope of the Wiarwaaa. Notwiths.tan.ling hia [riah blOOd, hia red hair, his six feet and hia _'00 pour.ds he has backed away from it.
