The tlmo and atteii-j tlon of Important officials of the com mission are being constantly taken fro-n their work to explain matter that in almost every Instance have been gone over thoroughly by th'' Comptroller of the city or by the Hoard of Kstlmate and Apportionment. "The public should know that if the committee Is to continue on such mat ters as it ha Wen holding Inquests on this week II will lesult In Increasing the cost of contrutlon by hundred of thou sands of dollars through sheer Inability on the part of the commission and It officials to give the necessary time to the (MiaTtinenlal matters they are respon sible for. "At the same time the committee Is showing a strange npathy with respect to progress on line of Inquiry started by It, vvheie the commission doe not have the power of Investigation. I re fer specifically to such matters ns the (illlesple contract and 'commitments and obligation.' These matters are of great Interest both to the commission and to the public and should be Investigated to the fullest extent. The committee this week ha attempted to Insinuate that the Investigation of the Sevenh avenue , i.ietu was not sufficiently thorough. Will It be necesMiry hereafter to hold an Inquiry as to whether the Inquiry into these 'commitments nnd obligations' was i.orri,. lentlv thorough?"
