Subway Operation a Keen Disappointment to the Residents and Taxpayers of the Bay Ridge Section-Service on Elevated in Non-Rush Hours Worse Than Ever Before. - The Fourth , avenue subway is opened! - . . .Trains now stop at all stations from Fifty-ninth street to the Centre street loop. ; ' : - The stations at- Forty-fifth street were opened on Sunday morning" at 8:5(1 and the residents, of that thickly populated section may' now use the subway without walking long distances. ' , The lotiff-suffering taxpayers and residents of the section who have been compelled to put up with inadequate transit facilities , for so many ..years' and for sb many months since the, great improvement that was hcr-i ulded with such delight on JunelO, when a portion of -the subway was opened for traffic, have at last come into their own and may with reason expect to have decent and comfortable conditions in the car of the JJ. R. T. In our last issue announcement was made of the failure of the Public Service Cogmiission to, act on the request of the B. R. T. to give permis-; sinn for the opening of the two sta-, lions at the meeting on Tuesday. The request was again taken up, however, '. at Friday's meeting and the authorization made, with the result that the two stations were opened on Sunday, as stated above. There is still work for the civic organizations of the section, however, in this matter of transit facilities. .The fact that there is now no reason why the B. R. T. should not give ample train ' service to handle the entire traveling public 'of Bay Ridge is too patent for discussion". That the railroad people are not giving .that service even with these ample facili: ties is also patent and so well known to the people of the section, as well as the railroad people, that there is no; the-, slightest room for question. On Sunday, for example, within i few hours of the time when the subway was opened in its fullest sensi (at 7::i0 in the evening, to be exact) there was naught, but standing roon on a two-car train of the elevated line and of course standing room only on the subway trains by reason of the Coney Island traffic.

Greenwood Conclave, one of the largest and most influential in the or. der, has cooperated with Brothc: r.urgess in the upbuilding of its sister and neighboring conclaves. In fact, the services of Past Archons Charles Wilson, Edward Hatch and Lester D.

The Biggest Kind of Success for the Garden Party Held on Friday and Saturday of Last Week Many Features Worthy of Note and an Active Campaign. y The most intere'sting suffrage event of the week was the splendid service in the South Reformed Church last Sunday evening, when the Commissioner of Correction, Dr. Katherine B. Davis, and the Rev. William J. Mac-donald, pastor of the church, speke eloquently in behalf of this reform. 1'he church was crowded to capacity md many people came from all parts of . the borough, to attend the first special church service in behalf of A'oman Suffrage: The big suffrage garden party held n Bay Ridge on Friday and Saturday of last week drew great crowds of people from all over the district. Dancing and supper were features on botl0 evenings, and the golf and archery contests, with valuable prizes for the winners, proved to be great attractions. The booths, at which randy, cake, needlework, cigars, ice cream, hot dogs and novelties were sold, were beautifully decorated in yellow streamers and great bunches of golden rod. A large melting pot, into which visitors dropped bits of old gold and silver jewelry, to he melted up for the campaign fund, proved interesting to everybody. There were two special features of the booth at which the home-made -nkes were sold. One was the arrival there of two beautifully frosted cakes hearing' the cards of the Ninth A. D. assemblyman, Hon. Frederick S. Burr and Mrs. Burr, Bidding for these cakes was spirited and a neat sum was netted for the cause through the dona- (Continued on Page Ten.) Primary Day, Tuesday next, September 28.

Just at the right time, the right place, and fall due to our real, regular, live-wire Orator McGuire'. That trolley outing and supper at Coney Island last Thurs day surely proved to the Orator and every person who attended that it was the biggest "ad." for Adirondack that could possibly be arranged at this particular time. Just think of two trolley cars, loaded to the muzzle with 200 persons armed with horns, red fire, good, solid lungs, and a bras.s hand, traveling through the busiest streets of Bay Ridge, making as much noise. as could possibly be hoisted on the public, and then straight to Coney Island, and right through the thousands of Mardl Gras enthusiasts on Surf avenue. Each car was labeled with a big banner, "Adirondack," so that every one knew who was coming. Those who did not know of Adirondack before Thursday night surely know it now.

SCHEDULE THAT HAS BEEN ADOPTED FOR DAILY ROUTINE t . . , i Splendid Opportunity for Business Men to Get a Military Training and at the Same Time Attend to Their . - Daily Business An Outing and a Patriotic Duty. In the course of the campaign for the recruiting of the "rookies" for the Fort Hamilton Business Men's Military Training Camp, applicants for admission frequently have expressed a wish to know what the daily routine of the camp will be. Although the final schedule for each day at camp nas not been decided vet. the com mittee in charge at the time when the camp was .first proposed to General Leonard Wood, laid before him a ten lative programme that made provision ;or the entire period spent at the camp by the business men students, from the time when they arrived there in the evening until 6 o'clock on the fol lowing morning. .This schedule is as follows: 5 P. M. First call for evening'drill. 5:15 P. M. Drill call. - 7 P. M. Recall. " 7:15 P. M. Mess call. S P. M. School or drill call. 9:30 P. M. Recall. 9:45 P. M. Tattoo! 10 P. M. Taps. ..(Lights out.) 5 A. M. Reveille. . 5:10 A. M. First call for drill. "5:20 A. M. Drill call. 6 A. M. Recall. Get More Practice' Than Militiamen. Under such a schedule students at the camp in one day will devote a greater time to military instruction and drill than the average National Guardsman does in two weeks, and attendance at the camp will afford ample opportunity for a thorough military training within the - four weeks the camp will he maintained. Those students who remain at the camp throughout the day, when the officers in charge will be at liberty to give a greater portion of their time to individual instruction is military riding, sea coast artillery, map making, scout duty and signal work, will receive an especially good training of a scope that, until the institution of military training camps, could be equaled jnly by a much longer period of instruction by ' regular service in the National Guard. Upon their arrival at the camp in the evening, the students will have time to don their uniforms and prepare for drill, in which the infantry, cavalry and other branches of service will participate. These exercises will be followed, after an interval for washing up, etc., by the mess call for supper. Students at the camp may provide their own food or purchase it at the (Continued on Pane Eight.)

" lie was 'elected two years ago by the large vote given him not only by the Republican and Progressive Parties, ... lint by the voters of other parties as well. lie has been truly a representative of all the people, of this district, irrespective of party affiliation, and has served them faithfully and well during his term of office. He has now been designated for renomination by many voters in the Republican and Progressive Parties and also in the Independence League and the American Party.- A faithful official deserves to be retained; it is therefore the duty of the enrolled voters in the respective parties in which Alderman Valentine has been designated for nomination, who believe in clean and efficient public servants to see to it that his nomination is assured by casting their ballot for. him on Primary Day, September 28, 1915. i - POLITICAL ADVBRTISIM1 I FMOf.DCI II.

With this plea he expects to win.-The Independence League, as an organization, claims to be tired of being "handed over" by its leaders, he says;, and urges the voters of that party in-the Ninth to assert that independence, which they expect and demand from the representatives of the people at' Albany and give him the votes that' will make him their candidate solely . because of his record while in the, legislature. , !
