A beanty, i A LEGAL Rapid Transit Coinmissioii is Stranded. Desires to Buy Laiifl in ol Its Would Then Sell Property It Did Mot Want. Plan Would Save Boston Millions of'Dollars. But Constitution May Have Jto be Amended. The City of Boston Rapid Transit Commission is virtually stranded on a lepral rook. After several months of investigation, of plana being submitted, testimony being taken and various systems for the solving of the proDlem of rapid traftsit being considered, both in this country and Europe, the commission finds itself practically powerless to proceed further without first invoking the aid of the Massachusetts Legislature. The question involved seems, at sight, a simple one enough, but it has farreaohing oonsequenoes. It is one which might make a difference of millions of dollars one way or the otlior to the citizens of Boston, and it the rapid transit commissioners carry out the solieme now In process ot formation, the bfilance will be on the right side when the reckoning is made. The difficulty is largely of a technical character. Heretofore, whenever the city wished" to take a certain amount of property, belonging to a private individual or corporation. It really meant that it had to pay for the entire amotmt ot the property owned by the party. Though the claim made was not of this character the result was just the same. If the city In widening a street wanted to take 10, IG or 20 feet from the front of a property 200 feet deep,the owner, if he cared to object, could make the city pay for the entire property, while he really retained four-fifths of it. All he had to do was to refuse To Accept the Gompcusatlon awarded by the city, and take the case into court. There it was only necessary for him to prove that the tafclncr away of some portion of Ma property in front Impaired the value of the entire amount, and that for all practical purposea it would have been as well for him If the whole had been taken away. Usually the property owner has beeil awarded substantial damages, amounting ,in npt a fow.lastancos to almost the value of the entire amount of his property, while in many instances the part talceuaway did not constitute a tithe of the whole. Then when the city had improved the neighborhood the fortunate owner, whose winsrs had been clipped, sold out the remainder, often for more than he could have got for the entire property in the boffinning. Now in solving the important auestion of rapid transit the commission is brought face to face with the problem, will it have to pay tor property the greater part of which it will never need to use- It Washington St. andTremont st. are to be widened, as seems to be the general impression. It would take millions of dollars to compensate the property-owners along their fronts for the damatre done to their buildings. The commissioners believe that It would be far cheaper for the city to buy out the property altogether, use whatever may bo needed of it for tlio purpose of travel, and then sell the remainder, < They believe that it would result in considerable saving to the city if this plan were to be adopted.. But here they are confronted by a difli-oultyofa serious nature. The law will not at present permit tliom to take more property than they really need, and tliey are forced to look for further powers in order to enable them to do so. This will bo one of the first things the commission will do as soon as tbo Legislature convenes. It will recommend that the city of Boston be permitted. To Buy Oh*. All I�ropcr< j-of Which a portion may he needed for the purposes of improvement, and then proceed to carry out tlin plan above outlined in detail. Ex-City Solicitor Kichardson, now a member of the rapid transit commission, was requested by tlio board to look into the matter and give an opinion as to whether or not the city has such power. He .)ia.s stated that it has not the power in his judgment. City-Solicitor Babson declined to oxptesi any opinion on the matter, as it had not been brouglit before him offlciaUy. Qther city oiHoials declined to talk for publication, also. And hero another complication may arise. If the city, or the commission, should ask the Legislature for power to levy property to a ereater extent than is really needed by the necoBsitiRS of the case, it is a matter of extreme doubt whether the Legislature lias any such power to delegate to the city. Competent lawyers say that under the bill of rights, which Is part of the constitution, no such power rests in tlio Legislature, All that it has power to do is to take whatever property is needed for puljlio improvo-inent, except witli tlie consentof the owner, and wlien it attempts to frive power beyond tliat it is an open (jucstlon whether It would not ho exceeding its authority. It is thought by many leg-xl lights that it would require a constitutional amendment to enable tlie city to buy property beyond the extent it really needs, against the protest of the owners. The rapid transit commissioners spent three hours yesterday afternoon in exocu-tivo session, at their offices In tlio Excliange building. It is understood that tliis phase of the question was discussed, and ill-. Ricliard-son's opiuiau submitted, hut the members of the conuiiission deoiiiied to say wh-dt action, if any, had been taken, .Some of tlieni, who weru .seen, would not deny, liowover. that the mutter had been under consideration, but would give no opinion us to the I'osult. ,So that it would soom that tliere are some unsuspected difficulties still in the way ot solving the rapid transit problem in the city ol Boston.

He came from Teirstenthom, Germany, nine years ago, his father having died leaving two sons 560,000. Haupt's brother is a prosperous clothing merchant in Eoohester, N. Y.

Kelly May Have Been Struck by Steamer's Paddle Wheel. Newport, E. 1., Dec. 22.-Little or no Important testimony was taken tonight at the adjourned session of tho coroner's inquest into the death ot John F. Kelly of Boston. William F. Kennoy of Newport testified that he first discovered the body lying face downward, between tlio rooks, high up .above tho reach of any save the liighost tide. The clothes were nearly dry. There was no Head covering. Surgeon .Siegarlodof tho naval station tea-tlQed to attending the autopsy. In his opinion the man was not drowned, but he saw no wound sufficient to cause death. The wound over the right eye might result from a glancing or falling blow, as from the paddle wheel of a steamer. Death probably resulted from tho blow or a shook received before or at tlie moment of entering the water, Another session will be hold tomorrow morning, when oflicers of tlio Steamer Plymouth will be present and testify as to tho actions nnu words ot the deceased on the boat. It is expected that It will bo shown that deceased was thou in a peculiar mental state, which might lead to suicide. OK0EB OF VB8TA IN TKOUBLE.

INICKJF TIE. Fire Hagod in Hold of the Steamship Abyssinia. M of Mmi ToM Passii Spree. Delayed a Little and She'd Been Too Late. Not a Soul Was Lost from Ill-Fated Vessel. Steamer Cavalier Supposed lost With All on Board. [CopyrlBlit.] Southampton, Dec. 22.-The steamship Spree rescued the crew and passengers from tho burning Guion liner, Abyssinia, in the mid-Atlantic, Deo, 18, at 1.80 In the afternoon. Not a soul was lost or injured. Wild shouts went up from the tender tonight, as she left the side of the North Gorman Lloyd vessel, the Sprco. The hurrahs came from tho crew and passengers of the Abyssinia, whose 147 souls had been reaouod from threatened death in midooean through tho gallant services ot the Spree. On Deo. 18, about noon, tho Abyssinia, which sailed from New York for Liverpool, Dec, IS, caught fire. Care was taken not to alarm the passengers, and Oaut, Mm-ray bent every olTort to smother the fire. It had evidently been smouldering lor some time, and when an attempt was made to ascertain tlio extent n volume ot smoke drovo back tho explorers. It soon became evident that the vessel was beyond saving, and tiio passengers were quietly told to make preparations to leave, the crew laboring meantime to retard the advance of the fiamos, which threatened to burst from the hold. Tho passengers behaved well, oven the women showing wonderful courage nnder the circumstances. All oyes were strained for a vessel, while the drowlne Xleat ot the nook told of Increasing danger. Capt. George G. Murray, when he saw that death from fire and water stared his ship's company in the face, at once put out a signal: "Ship onflro; stand by at this moment," The Spree, by happy fortune, sighted the doomed boat. She was not a moment too soon. Stopping about a quarter ot a mile away, tho Spree sent out hor boats. Smoke from tho burning cotton in th� IVbld was working through tho docks, and already coming up the gangways thickly, but there was no panic. Everythiiis; was done with tho groatoat ooolnesa, though with the utmost expedition. The passengers were lowered by ropes fastened under the arms, and the boats made trips until all were removed. An hour's delay and all would liave boon lost, Capt. Murray was tlio last man to leave the Ill-fated boat, and then tho flames wore licking the docks and clinging around the masts. The Abyssinia was a shoot of fiamos, and as the Spree steamed on her way with the rescued the Abyssinia's main mast fell. She was loft In midooean a burning wreck. A groat swell was on at the time, and tlie passengers wore drenched in the transit to tlio Spree. The weather was not very cold at the time, but just as tho rescue was being of-feotod a snowstorm aroso and raged for a short time. The pasaengora had no time to save any effects. From the time the fire was discovered by a man smelling smoke in tho hold until Capt. Murray left the ship it was not two hours. i "If that boat had oomo up a little later we would All I�o at the ISnttoin of tho Atlantic tonight," said the boatswain of the Abyssinia to Thk Gloue corrospond-dent. Capt. Murray sooraed ooorossod with a sense of misfortune at losing his boat, and gave tho details of tho loss to Tim Gloiik corrospoudont with evident sense ot narrowness ot tho escape. Tho Abyssinia was carrying cotton, apples and pork. Most of tlie passengora were lor Liverpool, They will bo sent on there tonight, Tho crow (foos on tomorrow morning. Contributions wore taken up on tho Sproo for llio benolit of the crow andstoorago pa.s-aongcrs. Five hundred dollars was colloctod. There wore only six women on tho Aby.s-slnia, and throe infanta, Tlio crow numbered 88; the stocrago. 30; second cabin, iO. Tliey were cared for well on tho Sproo, which had room onougli lor the rescued, as her own list was small. Tho Sproo roooivos no indemnity for saving tho passengers. It was puroiy a work ot humanity.

Abyssinia Was oi; Ono Time One of the Cunard Lino Boats. Tho stoamsliip Abyssinia was built in 1870 by J. & G. Tlionipaon, at Glasgow,, Soot., for the' Cunard Company, boinp a sister ship to the Algeria. The vessels were .'!37G tons and had engines ol COO horse-power; The Abyssinia was particularly a favbrlte with tho com-Piiny on account of her fine Jine.t, especially her stern. She was atrlotly a first-class ship and had a cabin finished in birdaeye maple. She was a moderately Tost voaa'ol and lused to make tho trip to and from New York In eight and nine nays. She never mot with any aooidont during her term ol sisrvioo with the Cunard company. In 1881, when the Sorvia was built, tho Cunard company gave the Abyssinia and tho Algeria to the builders, J. & G. Thompson, in part payment for tho Servla. Tho Thompsons ovorliaiiled the ves.sel8 and put compound onginos mto tlioni. The Abyssinia was cliartorod by the Canadian Pacific railroad, running between A'^ancouver and Hong Kong. When that company built three now steamers of their own. reeently, the Abyssinia was sold to the Guion line. It is said tliat President Grant returned from his trip to Europe on tho Abyssinia. Her slater shin, the Algevla, was sold to tlie Red Star line, and is now in service under the name of tho Ponnland. BIOKBD TIP AT SEA. KICKED OUT, Cyclone Killy Meyer Bests Jimmy Carroll.

"We were sailing along tho edge ot the gulf stream," tho captain said, "and on the morning of Oct. 25 our lookout reported a boat two points on the lee bow. "I orderod tlie helmsman to keep oil, and as wo come close upon it a man who was sent aloft sang out that thore men in it. "It took considerable time to bring it alongside, and in it were the dead bodies of two men, Ittelied to the seats. "The atern haa been broken either by the launohing of the boat when their ship was deserted or by the heavy sea, and she was half full of water.
