Co htovo manufacturers of Albany 10 takn
water from the canal and HUl holt MyerH of
Sehnnnctnrtv to take water from tho canal for
their knitting mill The witness thought none
of these privileges would interfere In any way
with the free and perfect use ot the cnnaK
On Jan 20 IBal Superintendent Butcher
revoked the permit granted to George 1 L
Monroe and D HJudsun to occupy and use tho
dry dock on the west side of lock 1 Oswego
Canal in the city ot Oswoko and grunted tho
came privilege lo A Mltoon limo witness I
said hun could not remember why the permit
was revoked but In reply to n seemingly
casual iiuery ot Counsellor McMahon said It I
WIIB undoubtedly u fact that the use ol thu ilry
dock In question by either party named would
not interfere with limo Interests ot the canal or
the State The reason which witness forgot
was that Mntioon IK nnd has been nltepubllian
since 18 > U and Monroe and Judon arc un
compromising Democrats Judson having born

The Chamber Commerce near the Rc >

volve lo Furor the Vndericronnd Kite
trla Railway as Well as the Proposed
Extension or the levntod fond
At n largo meeting of the solid merchants of
the Chamber of Commerce yesterday this re
port was submitted and adopted
To the riiambrrotOimnterte
At lImo last mooting of the Chamber the un
deislgnod were npiiointed a stieolal committee
to consider and report what measures are
necessary and practicable to improve our sys
tem of rapid tiauslt anti u o submit ho I follow
ing as n prollinlnnry report
Since timo nppolntmont of your coramlttoo
the llnpld Transit Coinmlsslonor have made
public tliolr conclusions upon this subject
which ns U well known lo tbo members of the
Chamber consist of n proposed underground
road with four tracks either upon ono level or
two levels nn may bo most practicable at suf
ficient depth below the streets to not Interfere
with sewers or tbo vaults and foundations of
buIldings the motive power to bo electricity
nail proamnably the tunnels will also bo
llirhtcd with electricity It should bo rrmom
herod howeter that this is comparatively an
untried mentis of transit thus Greathoad sys
tem In London not having a < t yot been pufn
rtontlrdoooi > to ivo assurances that It Is
adapted for lone distances and high speed
that the capital Is not rot assured to build
such a road and that thero are many people
horrofortlio better light and ventilation of
time elevated rondo with somewhat Blower
speed than is contemplated by the tunnel
system
The preservation of at least fifteen feet In
depth from the surface of the street and from
curb to ouib for sewer cos water end other
pipes including electric ducts and other
requirements pertaining to a constantly ad
vnnclnR civilization Is nlso so Impottant that
it must pot be lost sIght of or Imperilled In any
decree All citizens Intirrsted In tie welfaro
of our city however will hope for the success
of this plan TAo suburban districts need
quicker transit than the existing system of
elevated roads can give and by the time the
now roads are constructed even under the
most fuvotablo circumstances tho growth of
the city will hava developed sufficient traffic to
suppoit additional roads and any titt of a
lack of business may lie found as groundless
na wore the fears of the horse railroad com
panies at the time tho elevated roads wore con
structed
Whllo welcoming tho advent of new and
faster systems of transit the people of this
city however should not forget the service
which the elevated roads have rendered and
are rendering to the public While perhaps
not fat enough to meet time wishes of those
who live at considerable distances in the
suburbs we haonnly to contrast the present
noivlcoot the elevated roads with the slow
badly lighted and ventilated horse cars of a
low years ago to feel at least some degree nf
satisfaction wltu our present rapid transit
service
We are Indebted to their competition for a
bettor class of bor > o curs and the warming nf
them iu winter which wan only undertaken
after the oetatod roads hal established u
higher standard of comfort
Vo are Indebted to them for a saving of
tIme over the old system which has been of
inestimable valun and which has permitted
the bulldlnu up of the upper part or the city at
n rate which would have been entirely Imprac
tlcublo without thoinwitb a consenuent In
creasi or population nuil a vast Increase of
taxable valueswhich otherwise would have
beuii forced to Long Island or New Jersey
Ve am Indobtod to them hot a safe and
efilclont ndinlnistrntlon wlilch handles a lar
ger volume of tinfllo in tile same space of
tune amid with fijtt or accidents than any other
bjstoni of inliroads In the world and which
has been BO tuiccesslul Hint elevated roads
me being constructed in many other cities
throughout the country
Whatever their sins and shortcomings we
at least must clvo then credit tot thee ac
complished fact and It must to remembered
that these Inuo been accompllBbod in the face
or bluer opposition In swat iiiarters which
did not scorn Incline I to glvo credit where
credit was duo but only to enter charges on

Paymaster Wnrrt In Kick but Declare
that lIe U Nat lo nUrae
Frederick U Ward ono of throe paymasters
of the Delaware and Hudson Cncat Company
wan Injured In a oilllslon between n locomo
live and the pay car about two weeks ago He
was taken to his homo In Albany suffering
from concussion ot the brain Ills assistant
took his place and found out after ho had
bon on duty a fow days that the accounts
wore apparently short about 19001 The as
sistant Immediately notlllod the company and
an expert accountant wont over Wards book
Tho result of the experts figurine confirmed
the suspicion of the paymasters assistant
Vfnrd was then several days ago seemingly
orflho road to recovery anil an officer of the
company was sent to his house for an explan
ation of the condition of his accounts Ward
was much agitated when ha learned that ho
was Huspoctoj Ho begged that tothlnu bo
done in time matter until ho was able to como
down to the ofllce and personally explain the
apparent shortage All that he could say than
was that there must be a mistake pomowhere
which ha could clear away if ho had a fair
cbanco
An official of the company In this city said
yesterday bat t Ward WuiS very much liked by
this officials and that they regretted verrmtich
tbat suspicion had fallen upon him lie had
charge of this district around Albany and usu
ally disbursed about 2imOOU a month He
tins been n paymaster for twenty years and baa
keen iu the service of the company for twenty
flvi years
After no hoard the accusation against him
Ward Is said to have become delirious and to
have muttered constantly that the cliareee
agnlnst Him weio false and that it he could
only get to hue office he would prove that no was
Innocent The otllclal ot the company teen by
the reporter said that everybody iu the oillco
hoped that Ward would be able to show that
he uas not In fault
The railroad company In protected against
loss by the bond 01 the Fidelity mm Casualty
Company of this city The President of this
company Wlllam lilchnrdf said that the com
pany was notified of the ease a few days ago
and tent a man to Albany to Investigate The
man bad not up to yesterday afternoon dis
covered any shortage and Mr Itlchards was
inclined to beltovo that everything would turn
out all right
Ward is about 45 years old and has a wife
and family Ho bad the reputation of being
sober and OTtrcmolr careful man
ALBANY June 4The condition of Mr Ward
Is too serious to permit of his being seen
William C Van Alntyne a brotherinlaw said
today When Sir Ward was Injured at
Oneonta there was 4 > OOU aboard the pay car
The money was thrown about the car by the
shock and handled by other persons lll ac
counts wore not balanced until about 150000
or IWOOO bad been disbursed In his absence
It became necessary to have an acting pay
master put under bonds on account of Mr
Wards illness but this was not done until
after the wnolo system bad been paid for April
This very large amount ot money was dis
bursed during Mr Wards absence A defal
cation Is not alleged as I understand It IB
pimply a discrepancy which Is likely enough
due to the carelessness of clerks in other de
partments In making np pay rolls and causing
erroneous footings to be placed on the back of
the pay rolls Those errors may not be discov
ered for some time Mr Ward will unques
tionably clear himself
SUPEItlSXEKDEXT WEBERS DILEMMA
A Federal Court OlTen a JDeelelon Usder
the Allen Contract labor JLmr
Superintendent Webers attempts to enforce
the Allen Contract Labor law at this port have
mot with obstructions that cannot bo cleared
away until a decision In regard to the intent of
the law has been obtained from the Supreme
Court of the United States Already several
cases have arisen under the law that are to bo
brought into the Federal courts buCno trial ot
any of thorn has yet taken olnco hero Immi
grants who wero assumed to have violated the
law have been sent baok to Europe by order of
the superintendent but if they had been able
to bring their cases Into court his action might
have been reversed
The ground or doubt ns to the Intent ot the
law has been raised by a decision recently
given In Cincinnati A man named Laws was
brought before Judge Sage in the United
States District Court there on the charge of
Importing an alien laborer from Europe under
contract The Court took the ground that the
Contract In tno case did rot luitll the conditions
or the statute as the laborer could not be
legally hold to its fulfilment It held further
that there could bo no violation of the statute
unless the agreement under which the alien
laboiorcnme to this country was a complete
nnd enforceable contract Judge Bag there
fore decided the case In favor of Laws the
accused
As there are few of the aliens coming here
from Kuropo as contract laborers who como
under a complete ami enforceable contract it
will bo beyond Superintendent Webera power
tokoeii t out such ot tuem as may bo able to
take theIr cases Into court
On this account it Is Important that come of
the eases awaiting trial under the law hero
should be brought Into a Federal court as
soon as possible and should be carried to the
Huproine Court torn final judgment as to the
intent of the law

is that lelt by Columbus himself in hta journal
which was copied In part by liii friend BUhon
Casa after Columbus death The original
manuscript has disappeared bat even If In

would bo thrown on the suoject as Columbus
WHS so eager to tind tbo land ot gold that he
did not stop to explore end carefully describe
the Islands which ho visited Historians and
geographers have selected no fewer than fire
islands an the San Salvador ot Columbus

support ot the various theories but no one
has ever dons what the herald expedition was
organized to do take the journal Columbus

accumulated by the researches ot historians
hydrographers and cartographers and apply
it by a careful exploration of the islands
The Herald expedition If successful In locat
ing the spot where Columbus fireS erected bis

PIT cent of the pupils were getting It It was
a mistake to forget that the higher education
of the few was contributing most efnoleutljr to
the elementary education of the many An
other mistake was the tendency to depreciate
