Having thla rornlltlon confronting the company. It waa obliged to ask that If It were required to -operate th Kourth Avenue Hubway at a loss, the city should make up tha loss annually , The lnterborough Company provl.led. however, that all such iWlclts should be nrcumulated and be a charge usalnst future pmflta before any division thereof should he made beieren the city and the company. On May 1 the company futther mod-Hied its offer bv providing that ao long as any city deficits remained inpsM the ir.ternorounh profit from all other new llnea In esress of a per cent, upon the amount of capital In- i.ji it Hi nie upw voierfvriPe, should he applied toward tha discharge of such deficits by the city after applying to such deficits the profits received bv the city from the original extensions, and that there should be a illvlslon of profile only after the city waa free of deflrlta.

Cot. Wllllasae'e View of It. When tho letter of Mr. Bfc4nta 4-eacned Cot WUIIama. and he waa asked to reply, he begj.1 by quoting tho old adage: When the ArrU waa sick, the devil a mork would be, WVta the devil got welt the derll o anonk waa he. Col. Williams aald further: Thla fitly describes tho Interbor-ouch'a attitude on tha subway question. For years, relying upon Ita own strength of position. It baa refused to made any aubstantlal concession to enable tha people to get transit relief by reasonable extension of their own ayitem. Even up to May 9, tho data of Ita last offer to the-city, tha company had not offered to change tho radically unsound financial baala of Ita previous offer a basis ao fallacious aa to bo Impossible of acceptance by tho city, even If tho Brooklyn Company had not come In with a better offer. T. C..eT ,.,.. Prof...,. Sine tho data for formal proposals baa closed and tho drift of official optnton against Ita terma became evident oven to dull and opinionated mlnda, tho Interborough'a state of health seems to have been growing worse, and It Is enunciating new and unofficial proposals IntenUed to Indicate a returning senna of virtue. Tho latest unofficial proposal Is Mr. Phonts'a statement that. In effect. If the city will spend about fW"O.0HO more In Coney Island and Fort Hamilton extensions than It hag heretofore been asked to apend and will assume the Interest and sinking fund on tha entire $Ml, which will thus have gone Into the Fourth Avenue Subway amounting to fJ.iKa annually and will give to the I ntcrborough Company, as It must tinder the terma of the offer, about half of the revenue arising out of Coney Island business subject to no additional burden of expense, then he. Mr. Shonts, will recommend to hla Directors that hla company waive the requirement that the city make s;nol all annual deficits on operation of these lines. The city Is not likely to be deceived by any auch offer. The price la too high. Cnder the Interborough'a pro-poiutl the receipts on the extensions are to be segregated from those on the present system, and expenses charaed against extensions and present llnea according to car mileage operated cn each. Thua, obviously, on all business to Coney Island and return starting on existing lines and end'ng on the new llnee, or vice versa, the receipts will be divided half and half. But If any one will Ixy a ru!r down on the map he will aee that for every such passenger starting below Seventy-fifth Ptreet In Manhattan the new llnea get the bulk of the care mileage, and hence stand the heavy end of the operating cost. This la the essential fallacy underlying the operating basis r imposed by the lnterborough for all ta extensions present as well aa futureand nowhere Is Its unfairness to the city so emphasised as In the case of the Coney Island traffic. Effect City Credits. No wonder Mr. Bhonta la willing to forego his guarantee. For while tho " fat " end of the Coney Island business goes to awell the receipts of the IntorhorouKh s present lines. In which the city geta no share, he atlll reserves, after operating coats are paid, first claim to hie Interest on the cost of equipment: and then the cltv haa to shift for Itself to meet the heavy Interest chargea for the coat of the new construction. The result Is clear. City credit used under auclj conditions could never bo released for the construction of needed extensions elsewhere to relieve future congestion, and every dollar of money that Mr. Shonts can coax the city to put Into his extensions on this basis means one more rivet In the collar that binds lnterborough monopoly on New York. This apliea not only to tho Coney Island extensions, but to all extensions, wherever built. If Mr. Shunts really menna to concede something practical, let him offer an operating bsats that will do otherwise than to preserve for the lnterborough all tha ' fat " of the new llnea. If the lnterborough la sincere In all Its talk of a universal five-cent faro for all rive boroughs, why should It not begin this worthy undertaking In the borough In .which Its principal lines are operated to-day, and where It is now asking that the cltv give It at a nominal rental perpetual franchises for elevated third tracks, by establishing free transfers between there elevated lines and all subways which may now or at some futuro time be under Ita control?

NEW IDEAS TO BE SPREAD "Committee of the Men and Religion Movement" Undertakes to Interest the Nation In Active Church Work. An event In the history of tho Christian Church In America waa marked at a dinner at tho Hotel Actor, given last night by Tho Committee of Ninety-seven of tho Men and Religion Forward Movement." Two thousand men prominent In tho churches- of the city, Including pastors, bankers, merchants, and other professional and commercial men, were Invited, and 400 attended. Nearly all tho churches and creeds of tho Christian Church In Amer ica are connected with this religious work. Tho organizations participating In It now are the Baptist Brotherhood, tho Brotherhood of Andrew and Philip, the Brotherhood of tho Dlaclplea of Christ, tha Brotherhood of St. Andrew, the Congregational Brotherhood of America, The Gideons (Commercial Travelers), tho International Sunday School Association, the International Committee of Young Men's Christian Associations, the Lutheran Brotherhood, the Methodist Brotherhood, the Otterbcln Brotherhood (United Brethren), the Presbyterian Brotherhood of America, and the United Presbyterian Brotherhood. The work will etart at once, and it la intended that it shall reach every phase pf American life. To-morrow "will be Recognition Sunday," and from pulpits everywhere ministers will give recognition to the movement and help to spread It among their congregations. "Men have hitherto felt that the task assigned to them in the Church waa too Ptty to be of much Importance," said Ray B. Guild, the Executive Secretary of the movement. In explanation of Its meaning. "There waa tha nnaittnn nf n, in- day School Superintendent and a few others which needed men. hut for tho masa of tlie male membership there waa uuuiing 10 ao. i ne women run the church and run it well: but It Is a bad thins- not to enlist also tho service of the great uuu 01 laymen ana retain their interest in the salvation of tho world. That la one of the things If not the chief thing sought by the Men and Religion Forward Movement.' " The principal speakers at th dinner were the Rev. William T. Manning, pastor of Trinity Church: Raymond B. Fos-dick. Commissioner of Accounts of the City of New York, and Robert E. Speer of tho Presbyterian Foreign Missions Board. Mr. Fosdlck. whose subject wss "The Value of the Men and Religion Forward Movement to Civic Life." said in part: " There is a demand In this country today for efficient cltlsen. The only way to consistently Improve the quality of government is to Improve the quality of the people. The civic situation in a given community la a pretty fair standard of the moral condition of ita citizens. I presume therefore It Is with some discouragement that the thoughtful man tcdy looks over the field of civic life in America. There do not appear to be many facts upon which It Is possible to base an optimistic theory. " The last two years especially seem to have furnished a bitter example of civic dishonor. The corruption of the New York Legislature, the shame of the Ohio Legislature, the wholesale purchase of votes in Indiana, the ecandals of the Pittsburg Council, the general apathy of the citizna in all our big cities all aeem to cast an ominous reflection upon the present state of civic unconsciousness. " The really vicious influence in our civic life Is not half so much tho Building Inspector who takes a bribe or the Ignorant contractor who gives it, as the man of reputable standing In the community, who. while professing his interest in the needs of Central Park, sells to the city for its use. through underhand and questionable methods, a lot of worthless soil. The man who exercises a vicious influence in the civic life is the pastor of the church who congratulates me when I speak of the need of efficient men in our Government, and then aska me If I can find an eaey Job in my department for his son: the Principal of the' school who talka patriotism to his pupils and then, while acting as a Condemnation Commissioner, buys up land in his own right and cheats the city out of thousands of dollars. " The surest cure, however, for pessimism that I know is a careful reading of history. We are on the uphill road.. We are marching forward. In spite of the scandals that press so heavily upon us that it la difficult sometimes to see ahead, this country Is not going to the dogs, and the surest proof that you believe It is the fact that so many of you have gathered hero to-night to launch a campaign to help us along. The people are awake, and the hope of the success of this movement lies In the fact that you are taking things at flood tide." There were rive otner speakers, each of whom spoke for seven minutes on different phases of the movement. Hubert Carleton of Boston put forward his plea In these epigrams: " There is too much religion by proxy Instead of by proximity; too much religion by nurse instead of by person." " The motto of the forward movement must be, ' Seek the next man.' " We must have Individual work. This movement does not depend upon the scenery." W. B. Millar of New York said: "There are one or two chracterlsttcs that will mark the missionary spirit of this coming campaign. It Is to be a unified message, and responsible for It are the great home and foreign missionaries What may thla not mean to the future of the Christian church? " e The other speakers were Warren I Bunger of Dayton. Ohio; Elmore Harris of Toronto, and the Rev. Charles Stelzle of New York. James Q. Cannon presided at the dinner, and at the close called on Fred B. Smith to add a few worda The object of the movement, ' as expressed In a few words In one of the pamphlets already Issued, Is set forward as follows: "To leave with every crlurch. brotherhood. Sunday School, and Touni Men's Christian Association a worthy and workable plan of specialized effort for men and boye; to assemble and publish a statement of the most approved methods of religious work for men and boys: to win to Christ and the Church the largest posible number of men and boys by May 1. 1012: to greatly Increase the enrollment of Bible classes; to continue and Increase the emphasis of the Christian religion as the one and only nope or tne woria, ann to make abldlnr the missionary enterprises of the Church at home and abroad."

Miss Terry, Crossed In Love, Took Extraordinary Means of 8uffocation. Stteial lo Th Str York Times. ORIENT. I.. June fl After a Tnt Office Inspector had gone over the books of the Post Office here and had found all the accounts In excellent condition, he complimented Miss Edith Terry, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Terry, the Poatmistress. The Inspector learned with surprise several hours later. Just as he was leaving Orient, that Miss Terrv had gone home from the Post Office and committed suicide. She did It by stuffing her mouth and nose carefully with cotton and then tying a stocking tightly about her throat and covering her head with a feather, bed. The reason given for Miss Terry's suicide was that her parents had opposed uri iimiiiHBo 10 nuiiE uimam, a weu-to-do young farmer of Orient, because he was ten years her Junior, she being 35. It Is believed that she delayed ending her life until after the visit of the Post Office Inspector so that there would be no suspicion that her Government accounts were wrong. On her way home she stopped to pay a dressmaker's bill. The Terrys belong to one of the best-known families in Suffolk County. Miss Terry was a leader of the social life of the community. She was active in the various organizations connected with the Orient Congregational Church, of which her father was a Deacon. Carnegie Hero Fund for Holland. THE HAGUE. Juno 9.

The Telephone on the Water Front THE telephone has been a big factor In the development of business along the water front. The towboat business particularly has benefited by it. Instead of the old arrangement of having tugs ply up and down the water front picking up what business they could, the companies now receive orders by telephone at their offices and in turn send instructions over the telephone to their boats. When a " tow " is to be taken up the river, patrons up the river are telephoned to and a "tow 'J arranged for the down trip, turning the return trip into a profit-making one The telephone has made It possible for the shipper to follow bis goods until they leave the dock; it has enabled the teamster to save hours of time by being able to report trouble with shipments or to ask for instructions right from the dock. In the endeavor to save time and facilitate work many boats have arrangements whereby telephone connections are established with land as soon as the boat docks. Prarflrallv the enure water front has telephone service. NEW YORK TELEPHONE COMPANY GALLS FOR ALUMNUS TO HEAD PRINCETON Correspondent in College Paper Pleads with Trustees Not to Choose an Outsider.
