Estimate and Apportionment that additional corporate stock to the amount of $10,800 be authorized for this work in order that the contract could be awarded. This additional request for corporate stock was made necessary owing to the fact that at the opening of bids on February 9, 1916, for the building of this pier the total of the low bids amounted to $65,800, or $10,800 more than had been theretofore authorized.

On February 21st a communication was forwarded to the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund relative to the terms upon which the pier was to be leased, and renewing this Department's request of February 9th for the adoption of a resolution recommending to the Board of Estimate and Apportionment that additional corporate stock to the amount of $10,800 be authorized for this work.

This Department is in receipt of a communication from the Coney Island Carnival Company, dated February 23, 1916, stating that it will not be in a position to enter into a lease of the proposed pier on terms offered by the City.

I therefore request that the resolution of the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund of October 20, 1915, approving of the lease of the pier to said company, and the resolution of November 18, 1915, recommending to the Board of Estimate and Apportionment that the Comptroller be authorized to issue corporate stock to the amount of $55,000, the proceeds to be used to meet the cost of building the pier by contract, be rescinded, and I hereby withdraw my communication of the 9th instant and 21st instant relative to the issuance of additional corporate stock to the amount of $10,800 for building the pier in front of Dreamland Park, Coney Island. Yours respectfully,

R. A. C. SMITH, Commissioner of Docks. The Commissioner of Docks, who was present, withdrew his request for the rescindment of the resolutions, recommending to the Board of Estimate and Apportionment that the Comptroller be authorized to issue the Corporate Stock hereinabove mentioned. The following resolution was then offered for adoption.

Resolved, That the resolution adopted by this Board at meeting held October 20, 1915, approving of and consenting to the execution, by the Commissioner ci Docks, of a lease to the Coney Island Carnival Company, incorporated under the Laws of the State of New York, of the pier to be built in front of Dreamland Park on ocean side of Coney Island, Borough of Brooklyn, City of New York, together with a small shed thereon for a term of ten years from May 1, 1916, with the privilege of a renewal for a further term of five years. -be and the same is hereby rescinded.
