BESIDENTS IN WINDSOR LAND DEVELOPMENT ARE IN ftUAN- DRY AS TO SOURCE OF FUTURE WATER SUPPLY.
A number of property owners who occupy houses in the development of the Windsor Land Company in the south side of Rockville Centre, are in a quandary as to whether or not their aupply of water is to be continuous. The Windsor Company, since Its de- Telopment work was started in this section, has had contracts with the viilago of Hockvilie Centre to supply ¦water to the district.
Recently differences arose between the company and the village otficlals over technicalities, and the company is alleged to have refused to pay the water rents demanded. At a meeting of the Village trustees held last week a resolution was passed directing that no further contracts be entered into with the Windsor Company until the rents stated to he now due were paid.
Francis Hooney, village counsellor, also was directed to commence pro¬ ceedings against the company for rents alleged ttj be.
The situation is a rather unusual one and the property owners, as well as the village authorities, are await¬ ing the outcome with considerable in¬ terest.

I am writing to ask you it you will make a personal effort among your friends and neigh¬ bors to get a large vote tor Thos. A. McWhinney, our candidate tor Assembly. Mr. McWhinney has received the Progressive nomi¬ nation for Assembly, but aside from this, he has made an excel¬ lent record in the past year, and has stood for progressive legis¬ lation.
I know Mr. McWhinney per¬ sonally and can recommend him hlglily as an enthusiastic, ener¬ getic and hard working official. In conversation with a representa¬ tive ot this paper Ex-Judge Edwards spoke enthusiastically of assurances ot support tor Mr. McWhinney which he had reoeived from all parts of the county. Before jumping into an auto waiting to take him to Oyster Bay, Mr. Bdward promised a statement to the press later.

all the provisions ot the proposed constitution, the excellence ot the more Important articles and the- ne¬ cessity of Its adoption.
Mr. Wood, chairman of the Repub¬ lican county committee, when inter¬ viewed by a representative of this paper at campaign headquarters in Mineola relative to the appointment, spoke strongly in favor ot the pro¬ posed new organic law. "In my Judg¬ ment," he said, "the adoption ot this proposed constitution will accomplish more for New York State than could be got through the Legislature in 50 years. This new instrument offers to the voter a rare opportunity tor lead¬ ership. Its adoption certainly will es¬ tablish a new standard of responsible government."
An address to the citizens of Nas¬ sau county will undoubtedly be pre¬ pared and submitted by this special committee during the next few days.

Reports from All Sections of the County Show the Popu¬ larity of the Assemblyman's Candidacy, and Indicate That He Will be Sent Back to Albany
(Special to The Nassau Post.) MINEOLA, L. L, Oct. 22.—Jubila¬ tion fliled the quarters of the Repub¬ lican campaign committee at this place today. Reports have been re¬ ceived from all sections of the couLty detailing the popularity of Assembly¬ man McWhinney's candidacy, espec¬ ially in riie Democratic strongholds in tho towns of Oyster Bay and North Hempstead. The irst week of the campaign has forcibly brought to the attention of the voters, the excellent qu.il.flcotions which entitle Mr. Mc¬ Whinney to re-election.
And it's not the least surprising to tho members of the campaign com¬ mittee that Nassau county voters should manifest euch unqualified faith in the Assemblyman. Mr. Mc¬ Whinney has established a record of imblic service at Albany which gives ample evidence of hia unusual ability and integrity. During his entire term ot office he has been untiring in work and irreproachable in method.
Not only is Assemblyman McWhin¬ ney a vigorous flghter but he has those e.ssential characteristics which
distinguish him as a leader among his^ mately $140,000 to $20,000, thus sav- associates on Long Island and in Al-iing the taxpayers over $100,000. bany. His offlclal record at Albany .Mr. McWhinney has established a is that of an energetic, faithful pub-1 noteworthy record of pledges per-
lic servant, vigorous In the perform ance of his duties. He has consist¬ ently fulfllied his prl^dges to the peo¬ ple and has truly reiiresented Nassau county's large and varied interests.
Mr. McWhinney's ability was recognized ere he arrived in Albany and during thc sessions of the Leg¬ islature he served on three of the more important ot the Assembly commit¬ tees, notably conservation, village and public institutions. During the course of the Legislative sessions Assemoly- man McWhinney introduced some thirty bills most of which had to do with the improvement of conditions on Long Island and especially this county. His every effort was devoted to thc luetrests of his constituents. Courageously and with unceasing en¬ ergy he attacked and defeated in the Assembly a bill that had pa.ssed the Senate which would have reduced Nassau county's State appropriation for road maintenance from ajiproxi-
formed. He secured the passage of the Inland Waterway bill which will connect Jamaica, Woodmere, Oreat South and Peconic Bays, making Long Island one of the greatest com¬ mercial centers in eastern United States.
Assemblyman McWhinney above everything else is a man who knowa how to do things. During hia term of offlce at Albany he acquired an ac¬ quaintance with Individuals und a knowledge of methods posses.sed by few. The recent visit of Governor Whitman was a personal triumph for Mr. McWhinney because it was at ins personal and urgent reiiuest that this offlcial came to Long Island and with the state engineer and conservation commissioner inspected the water¬ ways, the agricultural school at Farm¬ ingdale, and studied the needs of a state normal scliool for Long Island and the fishing and shell flshing in¬ dustries of this county.

Colonel Youngs served more than twelve years as district attorney, until suct'eeded by Melville J. Francis last spring. Judge Chatfleld was at one time Colo¬ nel Youngs' assistant.
The appointment carries with it .special powers to hear extradition cases and to grant warrants for ar¬ rests f(ir offenilers having committed crimes within lhe jurisdiction pre¬ scribed by treaties between tlie United States and foreign governments.
