Will Not Use It for Subways.
To force "jokers" back into the subway contracts, Hie Interboroufti
and B. R. T. lined up to-day against the city. These are the Jokers the
"scamp critics" discovered and pointed out after Mayor Gaynor and hi'
associates had indorsed the contracts, contending that they "fully pro
tected the city." Had the jokers been left In the contracts the loss to the
city would have been many millions of dollars.
No final action upon the subway contracts can be taken before
Monday. The stated meeting of the Commission adjourned to-day until
then. Mean time the secret conferences go on as before.'
The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court by a decision to-day
added 70,000,000 to the $88,814,093 which Comptroller Prcndergasl
says is now available for rapid transit purposes, making over 1158,000,000
altogether. Mayor Gaynor poposes that the $70,000,000 shall go for
dock purposes, including the North River pier lengthening plnns AND
NOT FOR RAPID TRANSIT.
In the recent secret conferences of four Public Service Commission
