LICENSE FltKS FOR STKKST RAILROAD CARS.
Alderman Blessing introdnced resolutions call
ing upon the Corporation Counsel to enlorce the
License laws relative to street railroad cars. It
appears that some time since a commuulcatlon

the Board. A response wss transmitted to trie
effect that some $760,000 was now due from differ
ent railroad companies under ordinances govern
ing tms subject. These resolutions were sub
mlttetl to the Committee on Law. They ore
lengthy, and contain allusions to the lifbor ques
tion, mismanagement of city departments, em
ployment of country politicians in public offices,
and other matters entirely foreign to railroad car
licenses.
HARLEM FLAT OUTRAOES.

wtiy he did not Day the laborers employed on the

ihis Is peculiar.
i he law of I8'>7 expressly provided that each Commis
sioner was dinned to no compensation, but only to lie
reimbursed the amount of his personal oxpemes in vism
lng and superintendina the I'ark, not exceeding the sum
ol SStn per in. num. There Is m the record* ot then#
partiuent no voucher or document showing the amount
of the personal expenses incurred bv any ot the t oinmis
slonersIn visiting or superlutendlm* the Park, and lor
which tliev were entitled to be reimbursed.
According to the l.iw in lorce during these two (2)
yearb. be:ore a commissioner was entitled to demand or
receive one cent ol tile i'ark lunds in tho name of per
sonal expenses he was bound to show what these ex
penses were and when tliev were incurred; and it Is only
the amount thus shown ihe Commissioner, according to
the law. that was entitled to be reimbursed, lie was
not entitled to tile full *:U)0 per annum without reference
to the fact whether he liud personally superintended the
the I'ark and incurred expense in ?o doing. It was only
bis expenses which he did incur in actual visitation
that he was cniitled to receive, within tue limit ot $M)
per annum It no expenses wre incurred there w as no
claim to reimbursement, and no Commissioner was en
titled to demand w hat he had not previously incurred.
As explain* ii, the Commissioners oLtuunil an amend
ment ot the law .is to compensation. I lus amen nneiit,
while allowing a salary lo be pai tto tho t're-iueut or
Treasurer, altered ill ? law as to the &'i)o allowance lor
visitations bv strikinc out the words in the Ijiw ot 1847
u.- to i eimbur.MiiK the Commissioners the expenses
which tliev Incurred. and declaring, in lieu ol this pro
viso, that each Commissioner was "entitled to receive
for his personal expens s in visiting and superintending
the Pur* a sum not exceeding 9A.U per annum."
Ibis enactment was paused April IS, 1859. II had no
retroactive effect, but the Commissioners proceeded to
net upon it as ii this had been tho law from 1857. and,
without any reference to the lact whether tlie.v nad In
curred any personal expenses or not in visiting and super
intending the works, each Coiiunlssioiier commenced to
draw at the rate ot S'li u us from the date ot tho original
enactment ol 1*57, an I these payments were continued
down to ttie close ot the period second above specified
(April 26. 1870). and Included payments lor the period
first above speciiled. commencing April 17. IS-'?.

"Itesolved, 'limt tne Treasurer be puid a salary of

No person, so i*r as I have b-en able to ascertain, ever

The resolution allowing him tins gratuiiy was a4opied

SIXTII DAY AT JEROME PARK.
The Favorites Beaten in
Four Events.
FIVE INTERESTING- RACES.
Survivor, Madge, Aaron Pennington, Scratch
and Galway the Winners.
The slxtn day's racing at Jerome-Pare of the
spring meeting or tbe American Jockey Cinb was
not very largely attended, but was or more than
ordinary interest, aa the lavorttes were beaten m
! every race save one. There is a peculiarly intense
antagonism between the general public and the
"knowing ones" at Jerome Park and at every
other course. "Straight tips" are given grudg
ingly to the pro/anum vulytis, and results like
those of yesterday are apt to produce a Donny- ?
' brook effect on the average mind. The weather
was entirely propitious, the threatened thunder
* storm toward the close of the races fortunately
passing uway In the welcome guise or a refresh
ing chower that old more to lav the dust than
ever the obdurate l'ark Commissioners will con
sent to effect on the track und road irotn New
York. The sun that blazed in undlmmed power
from a bine sky on Tuesday last was yesterday
obscured by cloudy and the east wind
lannea the laces or the visitors to
i Jerome Pars, via Central Park* with a grate
1 ml and soothing effect. Many aquatic
! representatives were on Harlem Klver, exhibiting
i brawn ana sinew snch as only the exercise or the
i oar can produce; miniature yacnts contended for
i mastery on the vrrlous lakes of the Part;
mounted policemen on the Boulevards enileav
| ored to emulate the performances of ;he crack
i riders of the circus by interviewing the driver of
; a last team slaeways, horse on hind legs; the
, t>luff at Ream's, outside the course, was alive
with people; last trotters resented the interrup
tion or the surlv gatekeeper; unp'easant looking
darkeys screamed out ilielr numbers to the visi
tor and Inquisitive eves peered at every badiro
aud face, as If the visitor were an intruder. The
(iraiu Mann was partially filled, but around the
pool stands was a seething mass of humanity?
eager, anxious and excited, ihere was little of
tnougnt among tnem oi ttie beiuty oi tiie scene?
ia? Park (rained in nature's nrlgntost colors.
Tiiey thonghr, oni* ot the chances of the race,
and the click of tne recorder oi tlie Pans
mutueis was the sweetest music to their ears.
Pencils and programmes were in every hand, and
eager eyes lo iked lor "straight tips," Then the
bell sounded lor the last time, and the monotonous
voice oi tne pool seller c*used. A rush to the
Gruua Stand, a scramble for a good place, a cry
?M lioy're off," a clsud ot dust, a glimmer opsun
stuns on the reeking a'des oi the contettants,
discordant shonts as the result is reachcd and a
ringing shout when the lavorite 1s beaten, then
then; is a deafening patter oi teet aa the eager
lookers on rush to the pools attain from the Grand
Stand. The victory won by Mctiiath's Aaron Pen
nington ia the rac* lor the Wood burn stakes was
hailed with ueilaht by tbe "outsiders,** who.went
I ia aunlnst Keiorm- some said that Heiorm in
New York to long i'go plaved out. They made a
remark about Bullet's deieat to the effeot that he
, had not beeu named at Creedmoor, and about
Shy iocs that he could not get his pound of flesh
tins time, on Saturday this very inrerestlag and
i attractive meeting ot the American Jockey Club
wni be brought to a close.
Tin; RACING.
The track was In very fair condition, although
not fast. Toe weather was most suitable lor
racing, the horses always running best wnen a
bright sun Is shiniug over them. Five races were
run, and they all gave satisfaction to the specta
tors. The time ma<le t>f the horses in the several
raccs was most excellent lor the Jerome l ark
track, which is always slower than any other in
America.
The first race was a free handicap sweepstakes
