President of Aldermen Protests
in Vain Against the
Tba Board of Estimate, by a votn of
II to 3, committed the city to-day to
Uit financing of tho $.0.000,000 dual sys
tem of Intertorough-U. 11. T. subways
by the adoption of the McAneny report.
The Board's approval came after a pro
longed and at times Irasclblo dlicusalon
of tho terms of tho resolution In which
President MaAneny determinedly' up
held his report against the seemingly
ndless objections of President Mltohel
of the Hoard of Aldermen the sole dis
senting voice In the Hoard.
The resolution authorlxcs the Public
Service Commission to draw up con
tracts for the dual subways, gives the
I.iterborough's backers, J, P. Morgan

Before tb vote was taken represen
tatives from the People's Institute, the
Uureau of Municipal Jlesearch and vn
rious Brooklyn civic associations spokd
for and against tho approval. Dr.
George V. finish was one of the nine
speakers who urged the board to delay
Its vote. The opinions of the speakers
were about equally divided. The only
member of tho board who atempted to
explain his votn was Borough President
Bteera of Brooklyn.
Beth Low spoke, extolling Mr. Mc
Aaeny and his conferees and also Presi
dent Wlllcox and his colleagues In the
Publlo Service Commission for evolv
ing the "best plan ever submitted" to
relieve New York's transportation con
gestion. He venturrd to preillet that
future generations of New Yorkers
would hold these officials In grateful

port of rthe In'orborougb's part In the

TIE BOXING GAME
Haley May Referee and Give
Decision, but Club Permit
ting It Loses License.
The controversy between tho New
York .Statu Boxing Commission and the
National Kportlng Club was all tied up
In 11 knot to-dny by twu decisions han
ded down by the Supremo Court. One
of these upholds the right of Itefcree
PatHey Haley of tho National Sporting
Club to give decisions In boxing bouts
and the other upholds the right of the
Boxing Commission to revoke th'e
license of the National Sporting Club
because Haley gavo u decision In a bout
at that club on May 9th.
Tho bout in question was between
"Jim" Wowart nnl "Gunboat" Smith.
At the conclusion of the contest Haley
awarded the honors to Smith. This
wan the first decision under the Frawley
CommlsKlnners O'Neill and Dixon held
a meet In?, suspended Haley and re
vokrtl the license of the National Sport
ing Club. Tho club promptly got a
writ from Justlco Krlunger restraining
tho commlH'lon from enforcing the revo
cation of the license. Haley got an In
junction from Justlco lllanchard re
straining tho commission from enforcing
his suspension. One set of bouts has
been held In tho cluo under protection
of these writs.
Arguments on the writs were heard
to-day. In tho caso of the Natlonnl
Sporting Club Justice Gerard dissolved
the restraining writ, thus establishing
tho right of tho commission to revoke
the license of the club.
But Justice Blinchard held that
Haley wnn right In giving a decision.
The Ilaxlng Commission, according to
the ruling of thu learned Judge, had no
right to i evoke hl license. "The lullns

Washington Orders Warships
Ready to Protect Imperilled
UPRISING IS UNCHECKED
Weak Gomez Government
Would Welcome Interven
tion, Washington Believes.
WASHINGTON. May 21.-The first
jtep toward u third Intervention of the
I'nlted States In Cuba was taken last
evening when tho transport Prairie
sailed from Philadelphia for Guan
tanomo with TOO marines, and orders
were Issued to 5,000 regular troops to bo
ready to move to Cuba at onco. The
Island government, despite Its assur
ances, l apparently unablo to copo with
tho uprising of the negroes, headed by
war voterans. American lives, and prop
erty are In growing peril, and It !s re
ported to tho Stato Department that
many Intelligent people In Cuba consider
the whole movement Is for the express
purpose of provoking Intervention,
In diplomatic circles It la considered
not unlikely that the Cuban Government
Ittelf Is tempted to encourage a rebel
lious movement In the hope of securing
a continuation of American backing.
President Oomes has lost control of
the Liberal party, to which the negroes
belong, and, with other troubles. Is not
snug In his position.
Nn olllclal of tho Administration will
deny that Intervention Is Imminent. In
deed, they admit that It Is In sight,
under present conditions, and du not
hesitate to say that In addition to send
ing the marines yesterday steps luivo
been taken to prepare for occupation of
the Inland by our troops.
The V marines who sailed on the
Prairie are dun In Uuantanamo .".tondny.
There they will Join the murine 1 trom
the gunboats Paducih, Nailnllle .td
Ilagle, after which nil will go Hit j c i.ap
at auantunamo and be ready f.r Held
service, carrying with them thirty
days' field rations.
In addition to calling out these 700
marines, orders were Issued to the
commandants of the stations on the
Atlantlo coast to hold the remaining
marines In readiness for duty In Cuba.
