THE BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE. NEW YORK, SUNDAY, JUNE 20, 191: Queens Men Want Tunnel; j Rap McCalVs Economy Commerce Chamber and Business Men's Association Will Oppose Rebuilding Bridge for B. R. T. Trains Connolly Also Favors Tube McCall Says, "It's Too Expensive." (Special to The Eagle.) Long Island City, L. 1.. June 10 General opposition arises In Long Island City to the statement given out a few days ago by Public Service Commissioner Edward E. McCall, to the effect that a tunnel under the East River from Manhattan to Long Island City to accommodate the trains of the B. R. T. system in connection with the dual transit plan, would be too expensive and in which he advocates the use of the Queensboro Bridge for this line. Of more than half a dozen men In Long Island City whose business interests are closely allied with the transit situation, not one would speak in favor of using the bridge for the subway trains. At the office of the Chamber of Commerce of Queens Borough It was learned that a meeting of the officers and directors will shortly be called to take up the transit plan again, now that Commissioner McCall has recently entered his opposition to a tunnel. The chamber, although as a whole, favors a tunnel, will tight for whatever can be proven to give the best advantage, not only to the City of New York, but to the Borough of Queens as well. It was made plain that the chamber will demand an Immediate solution of the difficulty. It was pointed out that John Adikes, at the last meeting of the Board of Estimate, requested that body to give the chamber an opportunity to be heard on the matter before any definite decision is made. This plan will be suggested to the board just as soon as the proper study of conditions as now presented can be made. It was definitely stated, however, that the chamber is not In favor of the roadway on the bridge being cut in anyway. It Is definitely stated the Long Island City Business Men's Association will go on record against the proposition to send the Second avenue subway trains over the bridge. Borough President Connolly, when seen today, spoke strongly against the proposed plan of Commissioner McCall. He said: "The proposition to run the cars of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Railroad across the Queensboro Bridge rather than through a tunnel should be resisted In every possible manner by the people of this borough. I do not know of any question more important In 'the development of the borough than this at the present time. "The suggestion of Commissioner McCall that delay In transit will be occasioned by the building of a tunnel I cannot concede. In order to utilize the route of the B. R. T. through Queens the section of this same line north of Thirty-eighth street lasses through Times Square and up Broadway, will have to be completed, and according to the best information 1 can obtain, it will take perhaps four years to construct this section, which by the way, has not as yet been let to any contractor. "The Queens section cannot be put In use until after the completion of the other and can be completed in a much shorter time. The expenditure of the comparatively small tamount necessary to substitute a tunnel for the line over the bridge is unimportant compared with the bet- ROCKAWAY RICKS AT "BLUE SUNDAY" LAWS Storekeepers Object to Having Police Close Their Doors on Sabbath Appeal to City. (Special to The Eagle.) Rockaway Beach, L. I., June 19 Considerable dissatisfaction is felt by business men of the beach because of the closing of their stores all day on Sunday. For the last two Sundays the police have ordered all stores along the Boulevard and side streets to remain closed all day, while the stands and booths along the boardwalk and In the amusement center at Seaside have been permitted to do business throughout the day and night. Business people who remain here all the year do not desire to keep their places open all day Sunday, but they do ask to be allowed to do so until 10 or 12 o'clock. ,They are willing to close after that. They claim that if it is contrary to the Sunday law to sell a kimono, bathing suit or sweater on the boulevard or other street, it is also unlawful to sell such articles along the boardwalk and to peddle them on the streets. They contend that the majority of venders along the boardwalk and on the streets are foreigners and few of them naturalized citizens, yet that class is permitted to do business unmolested on the Sabbath. The matter has been taken up by Joseph P. Bowers, former Democratic leader of the section, who has conferred with Alderman Albert Ben-ninger on the matter. The Alderman has promised to bring the question of Sunday closing at the beach before the Board of Aldermen and to seek an ordinance that will permit stores at summer resorts within the citv limits to remain open for busness untlli noon on Sundays. EASTHAMPTON'S FOURTH Every One Works for Safe and Sane Celebration. (Special to The Eagle.) Easthampton, L. I., June 19 The Maidstone Inn has been open for a week, and all previous records for patronage have been exceeded. Summer sojourners are coming early this year, and many say they will stay late in the fall, often in this locality the best time of the year to enjoy the attractions and environments of this old colonial settlement, dating back to 1844. Committees of the summer people are uniting with natives to make the Fourth of July celebration, to be held at the Neighborhood Association gTounds in Newtown lane, a gala and patriotic event. The Maidstone Boat Club, soon to build a club house and pier at Three-Mile Harbor, a tributary of (iardlner's Bay, have received word from Assemblyman DeWitt C. Talmage that $10,-000 In State money, appropriated for deepening and maintaining a better channel to the harbor, is now available. Cards have been received here announcing the engagement of Miss Lillian C. Bell of Englewood, N. J., formerly of Easthampton, and George . w"iotor Harvey of Manhattan. i Two miles east of here, where the hamlet of Amagansett tempts many fieople seeking quiet and recreation o spend the summer, F. B. Hyde and family of Cincinnati are now at Bluff pottage for the season. Wind Mill ter service that will be afforded by the construction of a tunnel, the maintenance of the safety of the bridge, the preservation of the existing roadway space and the avoidance of many other dangerous conditions. Clifford B. Moore, consulting engineer for the Borough of Queens also spoke strongly in favor of the tunnel. "I am consistently opposed to any narrowing of the roadwuy of the Queensboro Bridge," said Mr. Moore. "The idea of a $20,000,000 structure being cut in two as far as usefulness is concerned is a thing that I am much opposed to In every. way." William Richensteen. real estate operator of Jackson avenue and Fifth street, always active in the welfare of the community and the man who will probably be elected president of the Long Island Business Men s Association at its meeting Wednesday af ternoon, was not quite so sparing of Chairman McCall's feelings when he said: "I think Mr. McCall is In error In advocating the bridge for the use of the B. R. T. subway system. This is the first time I have disagreed witn the Commissioner in any project for the public welfare. Before the opening of this bridge it was necessary to practically dismantle it and reduce the weight hundreds of tons for safety and in my opinion no reinforcement or reconstruction can make the bridge adequate and safe for the overloading and excessive weight that would be placed there by the B. R. T. subway trains. The tunnel, In my opinion, is the only safe, practical and substantial method to be followed." "Mr. McCall bases his argument on economy," said John E. Pencheon, manager of the Long Island City Branch of the Title Guarantee and Trust Company. "It seems to me that Mr. McCall is In as good a position to judge the needs and conditions as anyone else. He has been there long enough to determine the needs of the city. The question to be determined seems to be whether or not the bridge can stand the additional traffic of these subway trains. If it can, then Mr. McCall is unassailable." Benjamin C. Vandewater. manager of the Queens County Branch of the Corn Exchange Bank, stated positively that he is not in favor of cutting down the width of the bridge roadway as would be necessary If subway trains were operated across it. "I am unqualifiedly in favor of a tunnel," said George J. Ryan, closely Identified with the interests of both the Long Island City Business Men's Association and the Chamber of Commerce, and one of the best Informed men on transit affairs In Queens. "1 have heretofore advocated the Dual Subway System as it was originally proposed, which carried with it the use of the bridge for the Interborough and B. R. T. systems, feeling at that time that a change In the contracts already entered would spell out a long delay In the operation of trains through the Borough of Queens. Since then matters of a different nature have turned up. I feel now that It would he detrimental to the interests of the industrial growth of Long Island and the Borough of Queens in general to reduce the roadway of the Queensboro Bridge and therefore lessen the attracts ns for Industrial concerns in our midst. I am strongly opposed to the B. R. T. occupying any part of the bridge." GIRLS GET DIPLOMAS AT SOUTHAMPTON No Boys Graduate From High School This Year-Rock-away Class of Forty.

WILL APPEAL TO FISHERMEN. Trestle Extending Into Ocean Will Form Structure to Which to Attach Nets. (Special to The Eagle.) Bay Shore, L. I., June 19 The most stupendous enterprise ever undertaken by the fishing industries of Long Island Is the pier and railway being built from a point 1.000 feet into the ocean, across the beach at Lonelyville, Fire Island, and 600 feet Into Great South Bay. The task is beings-Worked out by the Fire Island Fish Company, a corporation In which local men have Invested $50,000. The purpose of the pier Is twofold the easy transportation of fish from the ocean pounds, and an attraction for the hundreds of amateur fishermen who now go out from Bay Shore, Isllp, Babylon, Sayvllle and other villages during the summer. The structure has as Its apex an 18-foot hill situated about three miles east of the famous Island lighthouse. From that point it dips toward the surf and extends out into the ocean for a distance of from 1,000 to 1.200 feet, according to the height of the tide. The width at the hill is 14 feet and thence it widens until at the ocean end the beams are 90 feet in length. Between 700 and 800 piles varying in length from 45 to 75 feet will have been set when the pier is completed in August of this year. In the section stretching out Into the ocean the piles are 10 feet apart until a point 50 feet from the end is reached. The purpose of this arrangement is to provide for the great nets and traps which will do most of the fish catching for the company. In this lies one of the principal reasons for the erection of the pier. The huge ocean pounds now laid out in the ocean are at the mercy of the strong tides. Whenever a gale blows off shore th.e current is so strong that the big piles which hold the pounds in place are washed away as if they were of no greater thickness than a match stick, and the valuable nets with hundreds of pounds of fish are lost. In the 10-foot intervales between the pile under the pier a series of nets will be stretched. All these lead up to a trap of huge dimensions fastened in the interval between the last pile and the end of the pier. Anyone who has seen the fish pier at Belmar, N. J., operated, will know the exact arranger ment of these nets and trap, for the Lonelyville pier, when finished, will be an exact reproduction of the Belmar pier. Again, anyone who has doubts of the ability of the pier to weather the worsts torms that affect Fire Island Beach needs only to turn to the record of the New Jersey structure for assurance. That pier has stood up under more severe storms than ever reach this locality, for twenty-seven years. The safety of these nets is made possible by their attachment to a cable connected in turn to a power house, which pulls the whole series of nets to safety at the approach of a storm. Fish Traps Will Be Emptied Daily. The trap will be emptied every clay and the contents carried across the island to the bay in a tank car about fifteen feet long, six feet wide and six feet detp. This car will be operated on Its own power. A churning device to keep the water in circulation and the fish alive during the trip to the bay will also be attached to the car. The trap will be bailed out into boats. Those boats will be raised by cranes to the pier, eighteen feet above the water at mean tide, and then emptied into the tank car. Another feature of the scheme will be an immense detention reservoir in a dredged-out portion of the bay where the fish will be dumped. The object of this reservoir is to store live fiah caught in the winter months when the market price of cod, sometimes as low as 1 cents a pound, would not pay the freight and commission charges. These cod caught at such a time will be held in the detention tank until the spring or until the price commanded reaches 8 cents a pound. The tank will hold from 2.000 to 2.500 barrels. The fish thus detained will be fed on soft clams and mussels, and other food similar to their natural diet. The pier on the bay side extends 500 feet into the bay. connecting with a 1,000-foot canal which is being dug through the shallow water so as to accommodate deep draught boats which will carry tons of fish to tho mainland. The promoters of the fish railway estimate that they will save a thirty-mile trip through Fire Island Inlet and out into the ocean by sending the catch directly across the beach. The industrial feature does not exceed, in the minds of the promoters, the recreation side of the project. When things are in working order the pier will be used only three hours a day for carrying fish. After 7 o'clock in the morning the pier will be at the disposal of amateur fishermen and picnic parties. Gates will be erected at the entrance and a fee will be charged for admission and another for fishing privileges. Certain days in each week will be set aside- for public exhibition of the way in which the trap is emptied. This will be an interesting spectacle for the "landlubber" for there are times when horse mackerel, weighing as much as 700 pounds, sharks and porpoises are included In the haul. When the recreation plan is in full swing there will be excursions boats run out to the lightship, five miles off shore. A hotel to accommodate amateur fishermen will be built when the plan progresses. When completed, the pier, buildings and land used for this purpose will represent an investment of between $60,000 and $75,000. In order to meet the need for additional funds, the capital of the F'lre Island Fish Company will be increased within a short time. The prime movers in the project are Captain Edward Thompson of Northport and Captain Selah T. Clock of Bay Shore. The other stockholders are William H. Bobbins, Dr. George S. King. John King, Richard A. Rachia, John Gibson and Frederick S. Boardsley. Captain Clock plans to take a boatload of people over to Lonelyville to inspect the plant on July 4.

Greenport Would Make Public Dumps Into Park Prompted by Eagle's Articles on More Attractive Long Island Villages, Residents of East End Village Work with Vim to Do Away with Eyesore and Providea Playground. (Special to The Eagle.) Greenport, L. I., June 19 The symposium of civic betterment for Long Island villages, started by The Eagle a move to make the various villages better for residential and commercial purposes has reached this village, and it is apparent now that Greenport may be one of the very first to take a definite step that will mean much in civic improvement. The laudable ambition of Greenport folk is to convert a public dump of course, it's an eyesore, and has been for years Into a public playground a spot of beauty as well as utility. This proposition is being enthusias tically received, and the general plan of The Eagle to awaken the villages to their own needs pointing out a way through publicity, is likewise thought well of here. "The Eagle Is doing a fine work," said one enthusiastic supporter of general civic Improvement. "At times all that any village needs in order to 'find Itself and to be made to progress. Is for someone with Influence to point out the needs that we have always had with us, but which we hare somehow overlooked. The mere fact of telling what has been accomplished in other villages and what we might accomplish, really does have the good effect of spurring us on." All strangers who have visited Greenport are struck at once with its natural beauty. It is a sea coast town. It has a fine harbor one of the best along Long Island's shores. Yachts and other vessels of deep draught can be accommodated. It has beautiful beaches on Sound and Bay. Its streets are well shaded, its scenery good. In fact, the handiwork of nature is pronounced. Realizing that man can assist nature In making nature more beatiful here as elsewhere; realizing that every village has its needs; realizing that the time to act is now Greenport residents, spurred on by seeing what others are accomplishing, looked around to see what could be accomplished in the immediate future to make Greenport a better village. It didn't require much searching to hit upon a timely plan. "It's a public park and a public playground," enme the answer. "We will transform that old eyesore up near the schoolhouse into a beauty spot. We will get rid of all that rubbish that has been cast there, and that has later blown even on other people's property." This was the entering wedge. So rapidly has the Idea advanced that already a petition is being circulated asking for a special election to buy the property. The tract is a part of the Wickham estate. It can be bought now for $3,000. and many say it is cheap at the price. Mr. Corwln Leads in Project. D. Stanley Corwin, a prominent contractor here, is busily circlating a petition to pave the way for the purchase of the tract by the village. Mr. Corwin has the best interests of the village at TWELVE NEW NURSES. Graduation Exercises of St. Joseph's Hospital to Be. Held. Far Rockaway, L.

I., June 19 Water sports art beginning to claim the attention of the summer and permanent residents. One of the features of the Great South Bay is the fishing. Natives and summer sojourners say the bluefish never have been so prevalent and willing to bite as now. The fish are small, an indication that their stay will be a long one. The Watson House is fast filling its roster for July, August and the remainder of June. Coralie Bolen Hage-dorn will conduct a chlldrens" dancing class every Friday afternoon beginning June 2a.

Mr. and Mrs. Ryan are now residing at Rockaway Beach, where they are receiviii?! the belated congratulations of friends. PATCHOGUE ONLY 5,000. Patchogue, L. I., June 19 Surprise was expressed today when it was asserted that the unofficial total compiled by Patchogue's four census takers amounted to considerably less than 5.000. The total was about 4H0 shy. One of the fraternal organizations had a census taken earlier in the year, and estimated that the incorporate limits contained slightly more than 5,000. HELD SUFFRAGE LAWN PARTY. Queens, L. I.. June 19 The lawn party held by the Queens Woman Suffrage Club on June 1 on Mrs. Grace Stewart's grounds, in P.ellaire Gardens, was most successful. About fifty women i eis present and played cards. heart. This is evidenced In the work he is doing to secure this public playground. The petition is being liberally signed. That in itself is a good omen. If the taxpayers vote as liberally as they are signing the petition, and there seems to be good belief that they will, there is no doubt that Greenport will soon have its long felt want a public park and a public playground for the kiddies. "At 13,000 the property Is cheap," says Mr. Corwin. "If the village is able to buy it at that price, it ought j to snap up the chance at once. And I the grounds can be put in shape for I public use at a very small cost. The benefit to the village is beyond estimate." I It is said, too, that all of the village trustees are in favor of the proposition. Village President Willard F. Grlfflng, who has done many good things for the village, by the way, says the project is a desirable one and that he is anxious to do his part in furthering it. Charles G. Bailey, well versed In Greenport realty values, says: "The property is a desirable one. The taxpayers will he doing an unwise thing in not purchasing it." Levine Brothers, prominent merchants here, have an option on the lot, but with the true spirit of progress, and placing public needs before self, have asreed to give up their option in favor of the village. Campaign for Play Ground Is Ener. getic. Practically all of the prominent, men and women in the village are favorable to the scheme at this time. Of course, there are a few who oppose. But many of those in favor are doing more than to say so. They are trying to convert those who are oposed, realizing that it is one of the most modern; ideas of civic advancement of the age to provide a spot where the children can romp and play without fear of being "shooed off." And not only this they realize, too, that their action in converting the Bpot into a playground will end a disgrace to the community a public dump. Heretofore an effort was made to get what is known as the Peconic House lot, bordering on the bay, as a public park. This property has been held at an exorbitant figure. There seems to be no chance of getting it at a reasonable price. While this, too, would make a desirable spot, It is not as available at this time as the Wickham property, and the chances of getting it are not as good. It is considered likely, however, that, with an entering wedcre made in securing the Wickham property, and then realizing what that property will do toward village advancement, it is not beyond the bounds of possibility that at a later date the Peconic House property may be added as an additional park a shore front park. At any rate, it is pointed out now that there Is no village in this section as easily able to get a public improvement as is Greenport. The village is Incorporated; It can buy and hold property without any special acts or delay. It Is realized that the time is now," and the village people will be very much surprised if favorable action is not taken within the next few months.
