' In an interview which appeared In the New York World on Saturday, Chief Engineer Jay Downer, of the Bronx Parkway Commission char­ acterized as \hot air\ th o charges recently made against th e commis­ sioners to Governor Glynn by Fra»lc Tucker, of White Plains, George L Miles, of BlmeTford and Uaac L. Tur­ ner, of Mount Klsco. \There Is nothing In them\ eald the (Xilef Engineer, \except the die- satisfaction of a lot of politicians and condemnation sharps 'jecauso the com­ mission Is spending millions of dol­ lars in a great public Improvemsnt and Is spending the money econom­ ically, white they have n o finger In the pie and no hope.\ Mr. Downer, who i s also secretary of tho commission, made it clear that an expert witness, and both gentle men insisted that Mr. Miles would be a good man for us to employ. \Wo told Mr. Miles that his ser­ vices would in all probability not b e neoded, but we would file hl6. name. On May 25 he wrote sending the com. mission further credentials as to his character as an expert witness and appraiser and these were returned to Ciim a few days later. \Now we have these charges sign­ ed by Mr. Miles an d two other gen­ tlemen, who evldontly know no'.htng about the matter. They have never been in the offices of the commission to get information If they had tiey would have been advised as to what Is being done nnd would havo seen the utter absurdity of their charges.\ The article 3taies \Mike\ Walsh, Tammany leader.

This caused a delay of years, white the commission marked time. The power of th o hoard t o ''enter a qualified approval was questioned in the courts In a test of the validi'y of the bonds Issued for tho required money, and it was not until May 27, 1913, that an amendment to the. orig­ inal ac t was passed, permitting the qualification insisted on by tho Board of Estimate, that Uio commission re­ ally got down to work. \Wo have acquired land to th o val- uo of $2,500,000, In round numbers, and have done it at a cost of less than 1 per cent.\ said Mr. S '.even3.
