ROCKAWAY'S BIG HOTEL.
ROCKAWAY'S BIG HOTEL. One-Quarter of a Mile Long, With
More Than 3,000 Rooms and Forty
The new hotel on HnultHWny Beach is to
he mine in all its detail. Une thousand
workmen ami one hnnilreil team are en
gaircd in its conatruction, ami, witli the aid
of electric lights, the work ia continued
day and ni'lit. The framework of the top
Htoiy U lieiiiff put in place. The contract
or who will provide the furniture and car-D'-ts
iiuiHt deliver the goods in May, and
by the BraJ of June the hotel will be ready
for huiined. Thi buildiiiK is to be four
stories liitrb. 400 feel deep in some place,
and 1,180 feet, or nearly a quarter of a
mile in length. This is five times as Ion
as the Windsor Hotel or either of A. T.
Stewart's stores. Iu front porch, extend
ing; all along the front of the house, is to be
70 feet wide. Another porch, on the bay
side of the house, will be 80 feet wide,
above theolllee floor there are to lie between
1,000 and lrlUO rooms to aGooniodat 1,500
permanent guests. The dining room for
these guests is to be in the second story,
and will be 200 feet long by 75 feet wide.
The owners assert that they have ordered
furniture that will make this as elegant
and comfortable as any dining room in N.
Y. This dining room Jnd the great par
lors on the same floor are so arranged that
they can all be thrown opien to form the
gigantic saloon. The whole of the ground
floor, porches and all except the space oc
cupied by the office and the oigar stands
and bars, will be one immense dining or
refreshment hall, but It will be divided in
several rooms. This is for the transient
custom. Tha bars will be a feature peculi
ar to t he place. There ar to be at least
two of these, 100 feet long, one on each end
of the building. There will probably be
another bar in the middle. It wil require
the services of 40 bar-tendera to do the ex
pected busiuess of these bars.
Already a pier 500 feet long by 185 feet
wide has been built into the bay, aud lead
ing to it and to the new railroad depot
there is a covered promenade 100 feet in
width. The proprietors are now building
gas works and there are to b water works
which will supply 400 rooms with running
water. In connection with the water
works, there will be means of supplying
steam to the building. There are fire places
in many of the rooms, for like the Atlan
tic House at C';o May, this hctiil it to be
open all the year. It is built so that two
thirds of it can be closed, leaving an' ordi
nary large'hotel for the accommodation ot
the cool weather guests.
The investors in this scheme have pur
chased a traot of land 700 feet below the
Neptune House, the first landing for Cor
nel White's summer boats. The hotel is
beiug built on the surf side of this tract.
The same persons under another organza
tion, are also building a new railroad from
Huntor's Point, by meatiB of which the
journey to the beach will be performed in
twenty-five minutes. This will be complet
ed In ity iliiys.
The hotel is shaped like the letter B, the
oentral structure having the appearance of
diviujng tne buiiuing into three parts.
This will be surmounted by a tower, with
a great balcony around it. It will take 85-
000 yards of carpet to cover the flooring of
the upper rooms, and the parlors will re
quire nearly 1,000 yards. The general
plan of the new company comprises exten
sive drives and grounds arranged by land
scape gardeners, Western capital is in
vested in the plan. ff. Y. Jei).
A Railroad Ogre.
N. Y. Times.
Whatever may be the object of Mr. Van
derbilt in unloading his vast interest in
the New York Central and Hudson River
Railroad, whether to retire permanently
from railroad management or tobecome a
sharer in a gigautio combination of which
it is to form part, there can be little
doubt as to the direction in which the in
ordinate ambition of Jay Gould is reaching
out. So large an operation as baa been ef
fected by the syndicate through which the
Vanderbilt stock was disposed of, is no
mere incident in the ordinary transaction
of the Street. Behind it there must be
some well-defined purpose for the exten
sion and Vtrengtheniug of existing combi
nations. It ia not in accord with the pre
vailing spirit of railroad management that
it should be allowed to result in any dis
persion of control. Whether it was the
original intent or not, it is the almost cer
tain consequence that somebody is in gaiu
of power over the confederation of trans-
fiortation interests across theoountry. All
ndications point to Juy Gould as the con
trolling spirit in the readjustment of own
ership in the New York Central system,
and if such is the case, there is little left to
conjecture as to the purpose in view. It
is to effect a virtual union of the Vander
bilt linesthe New York Central, Lake
Shore, Michigan Central, and Canada
Southernwith the Union Paciflo and
Wabash combinations, and secure a mighty
monopoly ot transportation aoross the con
tinent. It will not. be, and cannot become
an absolute monopoly, but it will have such
enormous power a to exert a crushing
force upon direct competition. It will not
be complete, but the supplying of links
here aud there will be a comparatively
It has becomeso common to writs th
beginning of an elegant, interesting article
and then run it into some advertisement
that we avoid all such oheats and simply
call attention to the merits of Hop Bitters
in as plain, honest terms as possible, to in
duce people to give them one trial, as no one
who knowa their value will ever use any

OUR NATIONAL CAPITAL.
The Ruler of the Navy in Court—Two
Thousand Pension Claims
—Mr. Acklen's Case.
From Our Regular Correspondent.
To see the Admiral of the navy In court
as a defendant, and a small, Laz-noged
clerk, who once held s subordinate place
in the Admiral a onto, a his prosecutor,
is an instructive tableau, and one calculat
ed to produce reflections in the minds of
those well enough acquainted with history
Ui know that this situation would not have
been possible a few generations ago. The
suit was to recover money said to hare
been directed from the pay of Ilia clerk
wetmore, to his divorced wife. Until he
insisted upon going upon the stand to
testify in bis own behalf, I believe against
the advice of his counsel. Admiral Porur
was a dignified looking object. But now,
how reversed the position of the ruler of
the navy, the quarter-deck martinet; Ad
miral Porter suited out confidently; he
talked well, but he talked too much. Ilia
counsel, Mr. Merritk, the same who had
argued Mr. Tildeu's claims before the
Klectoral Commission, tried to restrain
him. but the ruler of the navy was not ac
customed to restraint. The Admiral
thought the ship was going swimmingly,
but there came a squsll in the way of a
cross examination. The modest little
counsel for the plaintiff handed him a let
ter and asked him if he recognized the
handwriting. -Let me see," said the Ad
miral. He read it carefully and said: "1
object," with a comical emphasis that
brought down the house. The Admiral's
confidence was gone. Letter after letter
was handed him in his own hand-writing,
and his confusion grew. He argued that
they had no relevancy; told the counsel
for the plaintiff that he waa no lawyer, and
said many oter indiscreet and indiscrimi

Some time since the Senate adopted a
resolution asking the Secretary of the
Treasury whether anv reduction in the
clerical force of that Department could be
made with advantage to the Government.
To this the Secretary yesterday sent re
ply stating that no reduction of clerical
force can advantageously be mad in that
Department, except, perhaps, that some
old and infirm employes might be replaced
by younger men. The Secretary thinks,
however, that their dismissal would ha nn-
just, unless some provision be made for
their old age, in recognition of their long
service to the Government,
There are already pending before the

Our township election news niav, per

trua. Never before was there so much
strife, and it centered in Clerk, Aaamanr

over 20 years; but this year J. Rosen
