committee came up there was some doubt as to whether Mr. Baldwin would accept
the office, since it might interfere with his duties as president of the Long Island
Railroad. Mr. Schif!' said that Mr. Baldwin declared that he would accept the
position, even if it became necessary for him to resign the presidency of the rail-
road. Mr. Baldwin said at the time, according to Mr. SchifT: 'I shall always be
able to earn a living for myself and family, but I shall never have another oppor-
tunity, perhaps, to serve my city in this way.' 'But for him,' said Mr. Schiff, 'I
do not believe our city would be as good as I believe it is to-day.' "
