LY EAGLE Complete Stock Market ' THE WEATHER. air tonight and on Wednesday. FOUR O'CLOCK. Volume 73 Xo. ;uo NEW YORK CITY, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1913. 2G PACES. THREE CENTS. DAI DEKALB AVE. TO BE EXPRESS STATION ON SUBWAY LINES The Eagle and Downtown Business Interests Win Victory in P. S. Board. TO BE LOCAL STOP ALSO, $130,000 to Be Spent in Changes to Station From Original Plans. There will bo an express slop at the DcKalb avenue station of the Fourth avenue subway, as well as a local stop. This Is a victory tor The Eagle aud the downtown business interests who have been fighting for two years for an express station at this point. Tho line as originally laid out called for only a local station at DcKalb avenue, and although the matter was carried to Commissioner Mc-Carroll, when he was the Brooklyn member, and to William R. Willcox, when be was chairman, nothing was done until after George V. S. Williams succeeded MeCarroll and Edward E. McCall became chairman. The layout of the tracks under the Flatbush avenud extension in the neighborhood of DcKalb avenue is '. be altered by the addition of two cross-ov.vs to permit the express station at that point. This announcement was made by the Public Service Commission today. Coupled with it came the statement from Commissioner George V. S. Williams that while the announcement said merely that the change would permit an express station at DcKalb tvenue. It was the intention of the commission to force the operating company to use it as such. $130,000 to Be Spent to Effect the , Change. 1he engineers of the commission were instructed, today, to draw the plana for the improvement, which, it Is estimated, will cost about $130,000. Downtown business men received the news with rejoicing, today. "It is a step in the right direction," Baiil Edward C. Blum, one of the leaders in the fight for an express station nt De-Kalb avenue. "It is very evident that if the Public Service Commission gives tho operating company the facilities to make this an express stop, they can very easily give orders later on forcing the operating company to use it as an ex press station, if that concern docs not willingly take advantage of the facilities." It is known that Colonel Tlmolhy S. Williams, president of the B. II. T.. has expressed himself as believing DcKalb avenue should be an express station. Commissioner Williams, when his attention was called to the wording of the order, said: "You don't suppose wo are going to spend $1S0,000 for something that we do net intend to he used, do you? I have reason to believe that It will b. every used, and It is a simple matter for the commission to issue orders to that effect, if necessary." P. S. Board Explains What Change Will Accomplish. The formal statement of the Public Service Commissioner says: "The DeKalb avenue station was planned for a local station, and express trains were not expected to stop there. Since the plans were made, the proposed Whitehall street-Montague street tunnel lino tc Brooklyn and the St. Felix strcet-Flntbush avenue connection with the IJi igliton Beach ilne, both of which connect with the Fourth avenue subway, have been adopted. By the addition of the cross-overs proposed it will ho possible for express trains using either of these lines to swing over to the local tracks at the DeKalb avenue station, and make the stop there. The effect, therefore, will be to make an express station of the DeKalb avenue station, as It will be possible for all trains to slop there. There are to be six tracks in the. tube at this point "This change will also permit tho operation of all tracks to their full capacity during the rush hours, and will allow the operating company to route their Coney Island express business by way of the tunnel lino from Manhattan, the St. Felix street connection and the Brighton Beach line, as well as through Ashland place and the Fourth avenue subway. The change will not interfere the new cross-overs trains from tho Manhattan Bridge. In fact, it will promote the flexibility of thnt line, for by the new crossovers trains from the bridge may operate either over the Brighton Beach line or through the Fourth avenue subway. This would be possible to a certain extent under the , old plan, but the capacity of all tracks' under that plan would be limited by just as n.i.ny trains as were operated from the Manhattan Bridge over the Brighton Beach line. The cross-overs will permit interchangeable operation without limit-Ins the track capacity." REID AVE. CARS HELD UP. Homeward Bound Passengers Halted Thrice in Last Night's Blow. The Reid avenue car line schedule was upset three times last evening. Shortly before G o'clock a telegraph pole at Church avenue and Westminster road was blown over by the elghty-elght-niile gale, uud was prevented from falling Into the street by the trolley wire. The polo rested on the wire and hung over the street, while a long string of westbound Reid avenue and Church avenue cars was held up.

M'COOEY IN THE OPEN Publicly Declares He's ForCiynn Primary Reforms. Democratic County Leader John H. McCooey came out today tlat-footed for direct primaries and all the other proposed election legislation fostered by Governor Glynn. Although it has been generally known for some time among the friends of the county leader that he was In favor of the Glynn proposals, even the more radical ones such as eliminating entirely the State conven tion, this is the first time that Mr. McCooey has made a public statement of his attitude. He said: "With reference to the possibilities of the present session of the State Legislature, I merely wish to Indicate that our representatives in Albany are predisposed to favor Governor Glynn's prpogammc, which I also favo in full. I am thoroughly in favor of the Massachusetts ballot at primaries, the election district as the unit and the absolute abolition of the State convention even In an advisory capacity," Mr. McCooey was not worried by reports that several recent recommendations said to have been made by Congressman Fitzgerald to Secretary nf the Treasury McAdoo for appointments had been turned down. He refused to discuss the rumors. BARE ASHORE! OTHERS DRIFT. Terrific Effects of the Gale All Along Shore. Many mishaps are reported as a result of yesterday's gale. A Lehigh Navigation Company's barge went ashore on Bobbin's Reef; a Berwlnd White Coal boat sank at the foot of Thirty-first street, South Brooklyn: a tug had three barges in tow of Aniaganset, two of them broke adrift and the tug was unable to pick them up because of the high wind and heavy ecus. Similar cases have occurred at other points along the roast, as the slorm was pretty general as far east as Boston. DE FIDIO CASE ADJOURNED.

The opening of the Eagle Do-Something . Club of 1813 has been attended with won- derful success.

Arion Society Will Form Nucleus of Monster Chorus To Be Noted Soloists. A New Year's Eve celebration that will do away with the noise and rowdyism that In the past have characterized these, occasions has been planned by The Eagle, and the opportunity will be afforded to Brooklynites to gather before the Borough Hall, where a monster open-air concert will be held under the auspices of this newspaper. The concert is to be under the direction of Professor Arthur Claassen, and as a nucleus for the great chorus that will be heard the Arion Society, of which Mr, Claassen is the director, has offered its services.

New Year celebration that shall do for thin holiday what the Safe and Sane Fourth Idea hus done, for Independence Day has grown apace In tho lust few years, and Tho Eagle in arranging tlie open-air concert and in securing the services of Professor Cluusson and the Arion Society, who have been heard before the crowned heads of Europe, has sought to give Brooklyn the opportunity of participating In a1 celebration free. fortunate fellow men.

In the third place it is believed here Lads Found It on Their Way From'"1"1 lne Governor will have the support School and Turned It Over to Principal T. O. Barker. Mrs. Eleanor Hopp of 527 Throop avenue is hardly able to believe her good fortune in having recovered $230 which she believed was gone for good yesterday when It dropped from a handbag in which she was carrying it. She did not discover her loss until she reached home, and a careful search of every foot of the streets through which she had passed proved fruitless. That she did recover the money was due to the honesty of t.vo boys of Public School No. 41, at Throop and Putnam avenues, HI Hubert Ahrens and Lloyd Pierson, who found it while returning from school and brought it to their principal, T. O. Baker. Just how much the money meant to its Uumed "!!;Z2atX tearfully that it represented the savings of years to pay off the mortgage on her home. The two boys, Pierson who is a grand- ui utt: m lc ouin uif, u, i iif, iu in una nam avenue, and Ahrens, who lives at 440 Tompkins avenue, were walking along Throop avenue on their way from school yesterday, when just below Putnam avenue, they say what looked like an old, paper-covered hook lying on the sidewalk. Pierson kicked it and was surprised to see a large roll of "yellowbacks" fly out. When the boys counted tho roll they found that It consisted of twenty-three, ten-dollur bills. They took counsel together to find out to whom they should glvo tho money and llnally decided to turn it. over to Principal Bill; r. The latter took tho money to the Gates avenue police station, but LLOYD PIERSON was told that no Inquiries had been received there for it. No owner appeared last night, and the principal had decided to send a note around to the various cliiss-ruoms today, when Mrs. Hupp appeared and established her ownership. j u" ti,:1 s 'worn,;;; insisted on presenting each of them with Pierson and Ahrens were called in from a $10 bill. Mr. Baker suggested to tbe i boys that they each start a bank account with the money and leave it in the hank to draw Interest until they are 21. Both promised to do so.

MAY BE GLYNN FOR SENATOR. .tun jjoes .wot menace Tammany s Power in Democratic Party. (Special to The Eagle.) Albanv. Deceniher 9 The .nnltulntlon !f the Tammany Legislature to the pro - i, . ,, ,., , , . m amine 01 covei nor liiytin is explainable on several counts. In the first place Governor Glynn is not golnx to make war on Charles F. Murphy or the Tammany organization. In the second place the organization Is protected from assault In the primaries Jiy the direct primary bill. i l lie .uuipoy organization aim Hint iif will be the party choice for L'nlted States Senator. "Let this programme go through and the Governor's future will take care of itself," said senator Thomas C. Cullon, the Brooklyn Democratic leader In the Legislature, today. "The Governor Is an organization man and he isn't going back on Murphy and the organization," said Speaker Alfred E. Smith of the Assembly. "How would Tammany hav clived for a hundred and fifty years If men deserted It every time there was something said against It." An analysis of the bill presented to the Legislature last night shuws that it retains all of the party machinery through which Tammany Hull will be able to hold its sway in New Yoik City. Instead of abolishing parly organizations and mnk- , ,i,p ,,i.H.tnI1 niKl rlct a strnlcht. unit at the present leaders aud executive t '"embers in Kings tounly and New York j County could be ousted in the districts where the mjorlty of the election dls- tl.i(:ts ngnIIBt tho present leaders, It , . , . ... ,. ,., , cements the present hold of these lead- 1 ers. Where it does not simply follow the present law it provides that tile party shall rule and make its own regulations, These provisions draw the tooth of the anti-Murphy independent Democratic movement in New York City. County Committee to Consist of One Member From Each Election District. The only reform attempted by the bill is in the makeup of the county committee. It is provided that the county committee shall consist of one member from each election district. Many suh-coni-nilttees such as the Judici al District committees, Senatorial District committees, etc.. are left out of this bill but may be reinserted under the following clause, "and such other commitccs as the rules and regulations of the party may provide." So far ns the seleelion of candidates in concerned ""v lilll , is " "'ill reform measure, but tun Tuijiiuany view Is that with the organization Intact the leaders will be able to look after the candldatea in some way. It has H'equenlly been said by big Tammany leaders that the organization would be quite as powerful under any direct primary 1)111 which did not ac tually destroy it. It would have the same , centralization of energy that, it now lias, ind would work for the sumo ends. No Spy on Tammany Polls. Another ivaso'i why the Tammany men have fallen so readily Into line with thci Governor's direct primary bill is being advanced today. This is the failure ol the bill to provide that Inspectors from other Parties should lie on duly 111 theiii,i ,,ri,.riioiiii thai she knew nf nn rea Tammany primary polling places on pri-' n:er' ,lay. The Sulzer bill contained this feature, which was particularly distasteful to tho Tammany rank mid lllc. The present bill does not contain it. Governor Glynn wus asked about this feature today, and he made a mighty short answer to the question. "No," he said, "that is not in the bil.. When some peoplo get scvea-tcntlis of what the y want, tb y v. ant all the rest." The Democrats up here nre playing politics harder than they have done in the memory of man. lhey want to steal all ri:vxz 1 ? lltlll e' ne, Go e"?'Aa ,.ti,C,m n ! I 11 Khirilw l'litiiKi,. rn I n ml i .... . . ...... , dogs lose." They are trying to veneer 1 ,x- ii t nn 11, rn km r n v. l ie w 1 u the Tammany organization so that the people of New York City will have no Issue on which to attack Charles F. Murphy and so that Murphy can control the next State election. They look for ft division of the Progressives and Republicans and believe a Democrat will be sure to win with two other candidates in tho field. Urge Roosevelt for Governor to Unite Republicans and Progressives. An astonishing way In which this plan might be broken is being suggest 'd hero by shrewd observers. It Is for Theodore Roosevelt to stand for Governor next year on the chance that he could fuse the Republicans and Progressives. This would make a straight out light, between tho "veneered" Tammany organization and the "proselytized" Republicans, with Roosevelt's election almost certain. This is merely an Idea being thrown out into the air for public consumption, but now that the O. O. P. has swallowed Roosevelt's programme, the solution does not seem wholly impossible. So far as these bills here are concerned there Is a wild scramble of the Tammany men to declar efor them, Tho men who used to swear like troopers at direct primaries are shouting themselves hoarse over the new "pillar of fire" that Is leading them out of the night. Last night there were so many of the faithful de manding the privilege of introducing tho Pl'i senteu uy cwiiiinii.ii-i-.
