"I was brought up In commercial houses and know that a first principle t huslness men confronted with sinking more money in a losing veniure in io t out quickly, pocket tho loss and try to forget It. Theoretically, a city ad ministration might adopt the samo prin ciple. Practically It Is difficult. In .1 tnershln this could be dono and It would be nobody s concern ex- cept the partners. In the case of a I city everybody Is concerned. It might be Impossible to make many of "the cltl- lens understand that' the administration was doing the nest ining unuer me cir cumstances If It pocketed a loss of scv tral million dollars. 'That's only one consmeraiion. mere ! also the legal question. I think Mr. McAneny goes too far In saying that the whole $17,000,000 expense of the court house and site' Is mandatory under an act of the legislature. The Hoard of Kstlmate did select the orig inal site under n law of 1911. which authorized the court house board to do the selecting If the estimate board did not do so within six mourns. I!ut In that act there was not n word 1 m to what the cost of the building or site should be. As I have sam ueiore, the city under that act could buy a site to coat not more than $2,000,000 nnd construct a building to cost not more than $4,000,000. The financial obligation was left entirely to the city's discretion. Whatever the cot mny be the city gov ernment alone Is responsible for It. "However, on May fi the city through the Hoard of Estimate took title to the additional land to bo used for the Court House site. Such an act Is Irrevocable except on grounds of fraud. The Esti mate Hoard cannot rescind Its action. The city cannot compel the sellers of this land to take It back. Therefore the only possibility If we decided to abandon the whole project would be to put the property In the market nnd sell It at tho first favorable opportunity." Depends nn Legislature. Mr. McAneny says this cannot be done without nn act of the Legislature. As he construes the law of 1911, tho rite must be used for a Court House and cannot be used otherwise or sold. Un doubtedly the Legislature would rescind this mandate next year If the city gov ernment asked It to do so, but. argued Mr. McAneny, that would mean another year of loss, with Interest chnrges mounting at the rate of $(100 a day. He has asked Corporation Counsel Polk for an opinion. He believes It will con firm his own belief that tho Court House must be built unless tho Legislature votes otherwise. Mr. O'Mallcy told the Comptroller yesterday that tho silo could not be sold now even If tho city would and could do It. In the last fow years the City has dlsslnntArl n 1K'K. hilaln nd cent e'st nr'Rhborhood of Worth I 1 A committee made up of Mr. Mc Aneny, Mr. Prendergast atid President Vounds of Iirooklyn Is now figuring on Ae exact cost to the city of the sug gested abandonment plan. In deciding whether to approve the final building Tlans and specification!! submitted by 1 the Court House Hoard, the Hoard of K.s- tlmato will probably be guided by tne report of this committee. It looks now js If the committee will unanimously hoist the "go ahead" signal.

Douglas Is expected to do his utmost to convince Carranza of the wisdom of conceding a point here and there for tho sake of gaining the good favor of the United States.
