thev made In taking It for granted that the now
Stutn Constitution WOUld When ntnmla I A l
no btrloUM change In tnt ixillUeal currents
which have been carrying them along
Heretofore when a publlu department was to
be created ruorguuUed or abolished In the city
ot New York recourse was had to thn Legisla
ture which except In the case of cans Itullonal
iillccs had complete power A liouid or Com
nKinn mould bu abolished by the Legislature or
tho terms of Its members nhortanod or the ap
pointing power changed by the passage of an
net which In I perfunctory und routine way
secured the assent of tho Governor Hut now
this Is all changed for n bill affecting any
of the city departments U subject to the
approval or rejection of tho Mayor of
the city affected If therefore for In
stance It should have ben proposed to consolidate
date as was proposed a Hliort time ago the
