Wno owss Greenwich street??a rioirr de- 1

property owners along the lino of Greenwich street,

i dimi iiuivi mi omy ill'' ureas.ug uui ui uu iiusine
teellng which prevails generally. A gang of workmen
mine thcro early In the morning and at once began the
aork of excavating the walk lu front of the hotel. Mr. |
loliu Patten, the proprietor, ordered the men to desist, |
out they continued and ho called on some of his '
employes to drive them away as they were trespassing ;
oti his private property. A slight disturbance occurred, _1
during which an engineer and fireman In iho employ of j
Mr. Patten were injured. Michael O'Brien, a porter
lu the hotel, was arrested for Interfering with
the workmen. Judgo Hlxhy discharged him on the
ground that the case was one that should be carried to j
a civil court. According to the statement of Captain
Saunders the police were nolilled of the light by tlio
patrolman on post, and ho turned oat tho men on reserve
to prosorvo order. Ho took no sldo In the- matter,
merely insisting on the preservation of the peace.
Ilie story does not agree with Mr. Patten's statement,
who says the workmen eaino there accompanied by i
lour or live policemen, as if they uulicipatcu trouble.
Mr I'allen hastened to consult bis counsel, and meantime
the workmen continued digging away, while a j
lew policemen stood by to preserve order. They broke
through the vault under the sidewalk and were laying 1
a brick inundation lor the heavy iron pillars when
word came to quit work. It was soon learned that nu
Iniuuction hail been served on tho company restraining
llieiu iroin lurlhcr action. The cause of tuo trouble is j
a follows:?
The compatiy's charter provides that u board of thrco
Commissioners, two appointed by tho liovernor and
one by the Crolon Aqueduct Hoard of the city, niav determine
where "turn ouls" or switches may be erected.
Cndcr this provision tboy settled upon erecting n "turn
out" that would pass in ironl ol the Pact do Hotel, nnd
M r. Palton resisted their ellorts to do so on the ground
that he owned the property in front of Ins hotel out lo
the middle of the street. In IiIr nlUdavit petitioning
tor the injunction Mr. Pullen sets forth that about 100
fears ago the properly owners along the Hue now
known as Greenwich street opened a road lor their j
own convenience and for public use, which tbey called
Greenwich roud. That road Is now known as Green- j
mi ii street, mn uii'ir rigm in me propcriv lias never
boon reded. Ho pay* taxes on said property, ami tbo
only right eoiloil was one ot easement lor a public
thoroughlaru. He ftiribnr stales that tbo construction
ol such a "turn out" or switch would result iu a serious !
uQury to a valuable properly ami damaging to his business.
Tho . 'oni tiou was cr.niled yesterday afternoon
bctoro Judge Van iicuivL, and the qtiostion of its perpetuity
will be argued at a special term ul the Court on

Yesterday a Hkrai.ii reporter had occasion to talk
with Mr. pi. 11. Shrove, tho civil engineer wlio bus
cliarce ol the plans lor the Gilbert Klcvated or ltapld

Dltlcc, No. ft* itrexoi Iluilding, corner ol Wall and
Uroad streets, and, although bo was necessarily
much engaged, ho courteously anwswi red all questions
in regard to tho great public, improvement about to he <
inaugurated. He said in effect:?
It is a mistake to say that tho company i
engaging my services is tho Gilbert Elevated
road, and vol it might bo mi error to say it Is not that
corporation. Ttio truth is, the company is a combination
ol two organisations, Mr. George M Pullman
being Iho President ol one, and Mr. Foster of the
other; I cannot s|?iak more particularly of ibis at

Mr. Shrevo then showed the writer somo of the
plans ol the work, which, although incomplete, still i
bore sitlllcicui evidence ol Itghtue-s mid beauty to attruct
admiration. The pillars supporting the superstructure
will combine strength with ornament, and
the protecting parapets ot iron render the chances ol

A special meeting of the Chamber of Commerce was
belli yesterday aMcruoou to take action regarding the
proposed deepening of Iho Erie Canal. Mr. Snmuel N.
llnbrock presided. Tho following resolutions were
oflercd by Mr. Samuel B. Haggles, from the Executive
Committee, seconded by Mr. F. A. Conkling, and on
uioiiou were adopted:?
KcHoived, That tho Chamber of Commerce of the
State ol New York continues strongly to entertain tho
opinion, which it has repeatedly ex pressed in lortn'-r ,
communications to too Male begislutlire, lli.it the
highest commercial Intercuts of the Slate, us well us
Its character and Just renown, nntieratively demand 1
nit amendment to the Slate constitution committing
the sole man at; en ire t of the repairs anil narigutlon of
the eannls to a single sii|>erlolcuilent, to be appointed
by the Governor, with the assent ot the Senate. I he
Chamber, therefore, deems the laet, now becomo
historical, as a matter of profound congratulation
Tor all our counneri ial bodies and
classes, lor all our business men ol every description
and lor all the bolder* of real estute throughout the
whole metropolis, that the Slate Legislature, during
the present session, has linally passed lor the second
nine, by a vote nearly uuaulinoiiH in both bouses, 1
the necessary legislative resolution lor submitting the
proposed uuionilmenl aliening iho vital reiorm in
our oanal system and policy to the vole o( lite people
ot the dtalo in their primary and organic capacity,
to whose experience and Intelligence it may well bo
communicated, and by whom, as soon as the Legislature
shall fix the tune for itie election, the Chamber
coulblenlly believe it w ill bo adopted by an overwhelm- |
lOg majority.
Resolved, That the Chamber of Commerce of the
State of New York perceivo and recognize with the
highest satislaction the substantial accord in respect to
the canal policy ol (lie State which uow exists
beiween the two groat% political parties
which lor many years Held opinions so widely differing
us to the propriety and the necessity of enlarging the
capacity ol the Krle Canal and its kindred trunk lines
ut iho expense of the Stute, and nro now so fully agreed
In respect to the vital necessity ol completing without
delay each enlargement by giving to liie canals tboir
lull legal depth ot seven feet water in a channel wholly
Ircc iroin obstruct ions- Tho Chamber, therefore, respectfully
kegs leave to express its lull concurrence
with (be opinions recently cummunieuted by tho Governor
of lie .Stale In Ills Message to tho Legislature on
theiMihof March of the urgent Importance of completing
such enlargement ol the Krle Canal to a depth
of seven foot ol water before the opening
of navigation in the present spring. The
Chamber is particularly gratified with trio portion of
the Message which expressed Iho opinion in which
the Chamber fully concurs?that the depth of seven
foci, now proscribed liy law, may advantageously be
increased irom nine to time, ami as tn? con veiiioiiro
and exigencies of tho Slate may permit, to seven and a
linl! or eight leet; that tins aililltloual depth may
readily he obialneij without ultcriliK the culverts, locks
or other structures of :lie cntinl or lis walls below iho
present bottom; that such increased depth will greatly
lacilltate the movement of boats and quicken their ;
speed and thereby increase the amount ol their service
rendered hi a given time and diminish every element
ol the cost ol transportation; mat the low prico
ol materials at present and the scinty employ meat
of labor, ami the vital interests both of transporters
and consumers in cheapening the cost ol navigating i
the runal, aro all circumstances which now comhiuo to
demand attention to this subject by tho Legislature
without delay and make the present a III and
advantageous time lit which to begin the work.
To all those cogent reasons the Chamber would beg to |
urge in addition the depressed condition of the commerce
and business of the city, nn1 especially the constantly
increasing dangers with which they apt ]
menaced by the sii|)orlor diligence, intelligence and nc- !
tlvily of tiie governments and corporate bodies of iho ;
neighboring Stales and ol the Canadian Dominion,
seeking through the great improvements in their channels
ol Intercourse, now in rapid progress, to divert j
from the Mate even the diminished commerce with tho i
Interior which il yet retains.
i'.esolvod, That in view of the considerations above
presented, the representatives of iho metropolis In the 1
Legislature, in common with its other members, will
spare no ellort and submit to no needless delay in
adopting such measures of legislation us tho cxiguucios
ol lite State now so plainly require.
Ileaolved, That copies ol Ihose resolutions be transmilled
to tho presiding officers and to each member of
iho Senate and Assembly.
Every resident ol the eastern section of the city,

Ills olfactories shocked with nauseating smells waited
upon the east wind lrom Loug Island. Willi the pecul,
Inr odor of petroleum they combined all tlio sickening
properties of putrescent fish and decaying llesb, forming
a compound of unequalled otlcnslvencss. They
cause the strongest stomachs to retell, and to dcltcnto
children, the sick ntid convalescent, they arc the ureas
ou of Indescribable suUertng. It has been the popular
belle! that tins nuisance emanates lrom the extrusive
petroleum rotlnerin about Hunter's l'olnt. l'rcsidenl
Chandler, of itoard ot Health, being questioned
on tills point, c.\ ns that the petroleum Itself,
though possessing an acrid and unpleasant scent. Is not
nauseous, but t lint In preparing It lor domestic
use It Is washed with sulphuric acid
and subsequently w.th caustic soda or atnmonla.
These produce, besides the purified oil, a tarry sediment
kr.own as sludge held, au e.xcced'ngly disagreeable
compound This, combined with animal retuse,
at a large establishment on the Kasl River front, In Uio
neighborhood of tlio relluerios, becomes an article of
commerce under the name of phosphate or fertilizer,
and ta need by tarmers ns manure lor their crops. To
this sludge odd at the relluerios and its vile products
at the fertiliser manufactory President Chandler
charges the intolerable smell and its sickening and
deadly consequences. Ho says that chemistry has
ready un nns to remove tho odor. All that is lacked is
power in our auihoritics to compel their use. Kor this
a bill IS now pending in the Legislature empowering
board- of health to prosecute the |iersous wno are responsible
for tho nuisance.
Yesterday ITofessor Cbandlor, l>r. Day un<l tbo
Health Inspector ol the Ilarloui district undo a tonr of
inspection through tho region known us "tho Hats,"
lor the purposo of ascertaining what could bo dune to
Itnprovo tho condition of tho pestilential district. Tbo
Inspection began ut tho corner of Ninety-eighth street
and Third nvouue, and ended at tho satno streot, at tho
Kast River, nil tho newly tilled lots having been
visited in tho meantime.
At tho starting point, on the west side ol Third avenue,
It was louud that all the water from tho shed ol
high ground which extends in u diagonal direct
on to Ninety third street and Fourth avenue
gathers here n a small stream, which works its way
tnrotigh the rock tilling ol Tlnru avenue and llnnlly
Units a lodgement on ibe tluts. The stream runs ail
summer, being led hy Hie springs abounding on the
risks weal of Third avenue. Under ordinary
circumstanced this water Is m inagcnhlc, and
is conducted liy u ilrim Into the hcud
of tho newer?on the lluls which marks the Imi- of
Ninety eighth street, bin when 'he drainage 01 tins

stagnant water is fspuwil to ImiiI hi a tia<m, lornieu of

danger increase a hundredfold. To ihls. original evil
is added the aggravation of a certain quantity ot salt
w iter thrown upon ibe flats by the tide, winch hacks
up into ibe sewers and overflows ii|niii the llais
through the holo intended 10 carry away ihr Water
of the running brook. The cbentlea'. action of
salt upon thu I ou I matter oil tho llais is
very uniavorable. as It decom|>oses tlie phosphate in tho
son, and thus sulphuretted hydrogen is generalcst hi
great quantities. It is proposod hy iho Board ol lleallh |
if the Hoard ol Apportionment will lurnish llio rrqoi- 1
Site amount of money to construct a ra|iacious drain
which will convey alt tho water Ironi the west of Third
uvenuo into a sower and thus carry It oil. Last year
the Hoard ol Health spent several llioiisund dollars on
carbolic acid to disinlect the flats, which they say they
will be iiuahlc lo do agaiu luis year, as their appro
prlalton is barely Mifllcient to carry tho deparuuenl
through the year.

has not been raised to the grade of Third avenue. Is a
large pool w hich it is the desire of the Hoard ol Health
to nil up. The panics owning properly on the south
side oi the street have tilled in their lots and thus
forced the water to the street line and lieyond ou the
Townseiul land. I'he Hoard of Health has just been defeated
lit au action brought to compel the trustees of
tbe Townsend estate to bit up the lots adjoining 107th
street on the north sole. This decision makes It ngees
sary for the cltv to illl up tho street to the proposed

The cost or both these necessary Improvements will
amount. Professor Chandler says, to about flb.ono. For
that amount all the work alroan/ done on the fists ran
be perferled, and without It ail the thousands spent
will have been wasted.

Tho Emma ralno scandal has givon rise to many surprises,
and not tho least among tho recent developments
is tho current ruinor that "ltaron" Graul, the
celebrated Londou linancior and bubblo operator, is
now In New York watching ovents, and probably preparing
to make his appearance as n witness before tho I
Congressional committee. That tho Damn is in this
City incognito there seems to be very httlo doubt in the ;
minds of those familiar with tho inner history of tho
Emma mine business, and several well known Wall
streof moil Have declared that they liavo soen him on '

with liii< agents uml legal advisors. I'lio advent of
Huron Grant was uot unexpected, because it will bo remembered
that just niter ex-Mlnisier Srhenck started i
irotn Knglaild to uppoar before the Investigating Committee
he publicly slated that he would soon "follow his
old irlood, the Director, and give testimony, If needed
or reqttosted to do so.
The arrival ol Baron Gruut has made no end of
gossip hi Uitancial circles, lor It is not knowu what !
may be tlio result ol his visit. But a few days will j
sulilcc to set all conjectures nt rest.
The rumor, current In town yesterday, that tho
Baron was at tho Buckingham Hoiql, corner ol Kiftteth
street mid Fifth avenue, proved to be untrue, lor a
HkraLD reporter was iu:ormert by Mr. Shepherd, ono
ot the proprietors, that no such person as tho
Baron had obtained or applied lor apartments.
It was stated that he was travelling :
incogni'o, and would not register in his real name If I
lie registered at all. Mr. Snephcrd Informed the
ilKR.si.ri reporter that no one. not. even such an august
guest as Albert Grant, could obtain rooms at tho
Buckingham without registering his name.
The Baron is undoubtedly stopping at tho house of
some friend, and will probably remain ill retirement
until he learns through the papers the result ol General
'cbenck's examination heloro tho Congressional
committee. There are those who state that in the
