It May Be a Very Large One Before the Water From the Leaky Seservoir Subsides Quandary Over a Flushing Highway "Which Sinks Every Year. I . , - c 1 A iireoutj escapes uver u. i euce. Long Island Notes. (Special to the Eagle.) Eockville Center, L. I., January 5 A. smalt army of men and boys, with horses, i. - e plows, nxes, suws and other ico harvesting implements, rsu:ned work this mornimg in the field nail highways arpund the bi Frcel reservoir, between this villas and Millburn. The ice, which is about six inches in thickness, is as clear ns nnd consumers and dealers nro laying in their nunuol supply. Most of tli ico is beins cut from tlto tilghwty,wui':h is covered from fehc to fence, nnd where tho depth of water udor it permits of the use of lon Hadd saws. Xuone lays eluira to tho ico in the highway, but when parties began cutting the crop lu Mr. 1'urdy's door yard h is said to have domnuded i for the privilego. which was paid. Lawyer Vincent of New York, who has a lino country place ner, sot a gan of men to wort filling his ice hous. Henry Lotz, a bottler of bei:r nnd mineral waters, stored awav a sufficient auunlitv to run his business during rlirs year. Samuol Terrill and Elijah Terrill. ice dealers, are now harvesting a sufllcieujquantity to serve tnir custom - erf during tho summer and ehuekle over th fact that it is all at lirookiyn'a Mxpunse. Althougii tlm gates ef the resnryolr liavoboi'n open several dnyt, there is yet several fact of water under the broad, glistening expanse of ico which covers an urea of fifty acres. The water Iibs run out to a fovwi with tho conduit gates and that whiii remains must llnd its way to the bay by being filtered through the bottom of the reservoir nnd, Incidentally, tho cellars of the neighboring farmers' houses. The siu'ht of the ico field within the high slielteriujr walls oi the reeervolr would turn the head of a l'rospvet .ark skator. .' - upur.utendent B. J. DutTy is on tne grounds to see that no skaters trespass on the city property. Iu tlio meantime there are other who are suffering serious damage, while thrir neighbors reap the beuollt of the leakage. Upon the advice of Health Otlleer Dr. D. X. Bulzeu, AItIu Powell has abandoned his bourn. The cellar Is evea lull of water and the winter supply of potatoes and vegetables stored there Is beginning to docay, greatly endangering the health of the family. Mr. Powell bns moved to the village. a mile away. Tne Powell homestead, which Wiissold to the city by Alvin Powell's father nt a fancy price, is nearly oppo site. It is the bfrthpl'iw of three generations of Powells, including David Powell, iat president of the Xatioual City bank of Jjrookiyn. The cellar of this house is flooded also. Mott Smith, who" occupies a small farm, is obligud to drive across adjoining fields to reach tho village. Abram Soper, a dealer in pickles, is in sore distress. His place is hull : under water. His hog was drowned, his barn Hooded and his slock of pickles), which was in the cellur, ruined. His cow is without shelter and presents a sorry appearance, sh.verin under s. true, partly au - ensed ik an old straw mattress, which Soper lashed around her to kerp out the cold. These people feel som - what encouraged in the knowledge that the water is gradually billing. Mr. Skilton, the resident superintendent ot ponds, has opened a ditch half a mile in length toward tho buy, which carries off u ltirgu amount ot the water. Tests are made every day in the wells, which are located every L00 feet around the outside of the reservoir, to determine the fall of tho water. IT SINKS EVERY YEAB. The Repairing of a Flushing Highway Presents a Difficulty. (Special to tho Eagle.) Flushing, January 5 Many taxpayers of the town of Flushing are up in arms against the improvement of Strong's causeway, which connects the towns of Flushing and Xewtown. This thoroughfare is in a dangerous and at times almost impassable condition. Troperlyto repair the causeway would involve an enormous expense. The present width o: the roan way is supposed to be "is feet, but in many places the action of the tide upon the embankments has considerably lessened this, and there are some places where it is practically impossible for two teams to pass each other. The road is not only dangerous because or its narrowness, but also because it is continually sinking. The salt meadow is almost like a quicksand. As a result ef repeated soundings tho distance from the surface to bard bottom has been ascertained to be frem 45 to GO feet. Throe years ago the gtade of the road was raised 2 feet at an expense of ovor Sl.OOU. 'The labor and money wore practically thrown away. Tho roadued has again settled almost to a level with the meadows, nnd every high tide washes ovor it. The read - bed settles about G or 8 inches a year. The highway commissioners arc now trying to deviBe a plan by which tho thoroughfare can be put in permanent substantial condition. They have not yet taken any definite action, but they are in receipt of figures as te the probable cost of repairing the roadbed, which range from 25,000 to 6100,000. The taxpayors aro opposed to a large oxpunditure for the improvement of this road, as it is a highway over which there is comparatively little travel, xcopt when tho Flushing bridge is out of order. Tho commissioners are in a quandary ns to what course to pursue. They fear that an accident may occur some day that would involve a heavy suit for damages. The BrookJy Uity P.ailroad company proposes to run its road over this causeway, anil tho prevailing opinion is that that corporation should be compoilea to pay the bulk of the expense of improvement. It "is said that the company has expressed its willingness to build a new bridgo and contribute v5,000 toward the proposed improvement of the road. A careful examination of tho highway nnd a eompulation of figures arc said to show thnt it can bo put in condition for about r25,000. The highway eommissioaera wil.1 meet some time next we"k and further discuss the matter. In the meantime they will submit applications for the work and aavertlso lor cms, SAW THE FIRE BUG ESCAPE. Mr. Hauck Aroused to Find His Barn Ablaze. (Special to the Eagle.) College Point, L. L, January 5 A bold attempt was mado early yesterday morning to firo the barn of Gustavo Hauck, a baker doing business In College Point. Mr. Hanek did not reDort the case until late in the afternoon, il says that he was aroused by the lurious harking f tho dogs ana, upon going into tne yard, found his bnrn burning and noticed a man hastily making his scapc over a rear fence. The horse in the barn had been liberated by the incendiary. With difficulty Mr. Hauck succeud - ed in extinguishing tho flames before much damage was done. A strange fact Is connected with this fire. Before the arrest of Archie Mulier, one of the alleged firebugs, and subsequent to the burning ot George Cin - ss' bnrn Mr. Hauck received a letter to the effect that his barn would be burned next.

This pledgo of earnestness has drawn suoli favorablo attention to the merits ol Mr. l'hillips' bill that Chairman Metianu of the labor committee has appoiused a special sub - eomuiiitee, frith Ueurorientntivc Krdmau of Pennsylvania at its head, to eoimuler the measure. The attention of L.abor (.'oin:a:sioner Wright has also been directed to it. together with Mr. l'hillips' assurance of protecting tin; government against the expense of the commis - siou. s a result, the lj.ll for national urbitra - tion of labor difficulties U ;r the time Doing in abeyance while til - merits of tin: Phillips bill 1 ., 1, .01:.. :. m lire UV1I1K coasc.,;rel. .ur. 1 lumps in wue oi the wealthiest men in congress and. while his suggestion has been modestly made, there is no j doubt of his willingness nnd ability to exo - ' cm0 jt The pia ot n labor commission fa tin: result of much care.ul study Mr. l'hillips has given tlio subject. His id 'a is that tin: country i uot yet ready for law on the many industrial issues, as the bct . ..nil or remedy is not yet apparent. lit, therefore, proposes iu his bill that a com - missioa of experts shall eoa?d.ler the many plans of reform proposed, sifting tin1 good Irom the bad, and a - certniuihg the most fnasibln legislation to be recommended to couirross. Tin' commission is to bo non - partisan, and is to consider legislation to meet tne proidrms of labor, iigrlcnituro and capital.

(Jn.ilrinau Wilson will euil a meeting of Un: ways and menus committee as won us a Uonim oT the members arrive - , 10 con - ider several important measures beiorn that committee. The voremost of these contemp - ate an m - cr 'ase of the revenues of the . o '.'urn men t by the internal revenuo tax ou various articles. Kepres 'Utativw I'eHcn of Colorado introduced a resolution pruvious to the holiday recess, culling lor information from ttie treasury department as to the amount which would be ri:n:!7.cii Irom putting a tax ou beer and increasing tin: tax oq whisky. The resolution wus referred to Mr. Wilson's committee, and it will b:: one of the first subject. - taken up. as tr.ere is a growing feeling among members 01 the committee that some plan oi increasing tho revenue ef tho government must be devised and put in the form of law before the long re cess begins. Representative Moneys bill to raise the tr.x 011 boer will be considered in tho same connection. Another measure to bo considered is the bill to take oil' lh" ose - t - nth of a csut differential ou sugar. This differential has stirred Germany, France. Denmark, Belgium nnd other countries to Ink': reia.iutory meas ures against American commerce, so that the proposed bill seeks to overcome the commercial warfare with these countries. An interesting controversy is ou foot in con - between the military authorities aud the people of Eotiveuworth, Kan., ovor the attempt to make the Leavenworth mihtnvy prison a government penitentiary. Iho s - endary of war lias recommended this be done aud the house committee on military jilTairs has I'avorMil a resolution which has lc - ieu introduced to place the prisou under the jurisdiction of the department ol justice oy un ameiinmeui 10 iu: sundry civil br.l. The institution was estate lislied illtoen years ago and all solders sen U need to coiillnetneot for longer periods tuna six months are taken thero. 1 otir hundred the nvernge number of prisoners. Those who favor tho change contend that the newly adopted policy ol abandoning smaller military pouts makss tne prison unnecessary, as ou - mi - ors can bo kept at th various posts, and tliey urge considerations ot" economy and convenience for the proposed arrangement. Tho business men and citizens generally of Leavenworth oppose the change. They prefr to have a miliury prison rather than a penitentiary lor ordinary criminal lu their city, and th oltlcer.s who nuvo uocu detailed to manage the prison have been desirable citizens. Ex - Senator ltobcri Crozior of Kansas has come to Washington us a representative of the ousi - ness men of Leavenworth and It is probable that the mutter will b" rrop'med and the military committee grunt a hearing. lio combats the claim that tho prison costs more thanauy other system ol keeping military offender would. Tne Kansas members of congress are disposed to stand by the Leavenworth poplo. Th'ir" is a complication aided by certain religious organizations which takes an interest in the soloiers' welfare. They contend that the stigma of imprison::: nt should not be i ut nnon moat of the c'liiss - s of offenders sent I i ai. says jje will not continue nis moors j In behalf - of McGarrahan's heirs.

Mayor Schieren had a talk yesterday after - noun with Mayor Strong of New York ia reference to a consolidnl ion bill. They agreed that the bill should be on tin - linos laid down by Ocvcrr.or Morton; it should provide for a eommissioi, to be appointed by the governor arid by (he mayors of the two cities, as tho Eagle report ni vi'sb - i'day. The governor should appoint three members ami the mayors of I he tw o cities three ach. the mayors them - s, Ives to ! members ex - ollicio. Of the :l:e;l to be appointed by the governor om be cr I'l - om Richmond county, om - from i - atclic and Iho third from Long Island City. Arter the interview yesterday Mayor Schieren iiKpl' a ctateiueiit in which he said: "Mayor Strong u::d f have agreed that a bill should be prosoatiNl to the legislature as a substitute - for iho I.cxow bill, providing fur the appointment of nine commissioners to consider the questions of taxation and land mid other property valuations in the cities and towns to be - afooted iiy consolidation and after a stil ly of those ipiesi:.,::s to draw up a charter fur tile one municipality, which, charter should be submitted to the people for their approval.

PEARSALL MUST WAIT. Tlie Appeal Stops Ali Proceedings for the Present. Thomas E. Peara!l. in speaking this morning of the appeal granted tho Long Island Water Supply company Thursday by Justice Andrews, said that tho writ operates as a stay of proceedings against the city and prevents any further action until tho United Status supremo court hears tho matter. 'The Long Island Water Supply company is a corporation." said no in discussing the case, "nnd it owned exclusive rights in the town of New Lots. When lireoklyu absorbed the town she took it with ali its obligations. Now one corporation cannot take another's property to use in currying on the same line ot business for its own prollt. Yet this is what the City of Brooklyn Is tryisg to do. Our fran - 'hise has ninety years to ruu. Th" commissioners awarded us s - 070,0110. People said that was a monstrous sum, but examine ii. We have a mortgage of f.alM.hUO on ihe property and th capital invested is fc'ifsO.000. That is : T.'.O.OOd. Tho commissioners' award gave us sino.OD.i for our plant complete aud ii)t),0;i; for tin: franchise. Justice I'ratt s - t aside the commissioners' report as to th value of the franchise, but his decision was reversed by tile court of appeals, which sustained tin: commissioners. Application was then mtid by mc to Judge Cullea to nnikii. tin: city pay for couusei services nud lie awarded me rlO.UOO. This judgment is lllcd with the other, but our appeal stars all uetiou in that matter. 1 am not nnxioui about the rJO.oiiO. Tho writ is mado returnable in thirty days, but 1 do not know how long before the supreme court will h - nr the appeal. It will probably he a b'ng tim, but wi are willing to wait. Our lulls are being; paid promptly by tin: city mean iviiiie.'' METROPOLITAN OPERA HOUSE.
