M. S. R. Receivers Tell P. S. C.
4toad Cannot Stand Added Burdens.
The Public Service Commission heard argument
resterday of John G. Milburn and Robert C.
Beatty. counsel for the receivers of the Metropoli
tan Btr«^t Railway Company, on the transfer ques
tion. The proceeding was b*«gun several weeks
ago to determine why through routes and the joint
rate of five c*>nts should not be established l«?
tween the s»th street crosstown lin- of the Central
Psrk. North & East River Railroad Company
and the lines of the Metropolitan for the zone be
tween 34th and 116 th streets.
Mr Mllburn argu«»d that to impose additional
burdens upon the company when it Is not even
earning bare expenses would be confi3catory and
In hip argument Mr Milburn said also that the
Metropolitan system could not afford the resto
ration of transfers and that such a move was im
possible. He eaid that he regarded the proceeding
as cne of the most Important that the Public Ser
vice Commission will have to pass on and that
Its action will become a precedent of far reach
ing effect. In discussing the proposed order of
the commlsEion. directing the issuance of trans

vision of the statute does not inculde the word
"transfer" tn the authority given to the commis
sion. "If the Leirisiature. he added, 'had intended
that the commission p!iou!d have the power to
issue transfers it would have said so; but Jt did
"Under our present system of almost universal
transfers," said the lawyer, "our company is not
i •»le to pay expenses. And yet we are ask*-d to
divide pome of our five c«nt fares. At least I
wouid assume that the sSth street line would get
a part of it, that it is not being run 'pro bono pub
"If a passenger rides down only as far as 60th
street or even 72d street, w* keep his whole nickel,
but if he keeps on to 53th Btreet, transfers, and
then continues to another of our lines, we must
give up a part of his fare, ii is proposed. Ani,
remember, we are not paying expenses as it is."
Mr. Milturn'f argument in part follows:
"If you take money from us. when we are not
even earning expenses, you will have to give rea
sons for it, and you will have to justify it. And
if you cannot do that, then your order cannot
"The zone system and the flat-fare system can
not eo-«xist. A gTeat many business people have
to take frequent short rides during the day, and
it seems a hardship to require them to pay five
cents each time they Jump on a car. But it is
only through the fares thus received that the
company Is enabled to carry other passengers
long distances. That is the bad, and the good also,
of the flat-fare system.
"iVe maintain mat under existing- circumstances
the commission cannot impose additional trans
fers. But even if you could, t£ere is every rea
son why you should not. One such reason is the
gross abuse of the unlimited transfer system,
which means death, as is clearly shown in the
history of this system. It has been suggested that
we might improve our situation by collecting fares
that now go uncollected. But I urge you not to
attempt to mitigate one abuse by pointing out
Mr. Beatty, who followed the senior counsel for
the Metropolitan, gave figures showing the reduc

COMPANY TO REVIEW ACTS OF P. S. C.
Long Acre Light and Power Company Gets
Writ on Refusal to Permit Bond Issue.
The l>or.g Acre Light and Power Company ob
tained yesterday from Justice Bischoff, in the Su
preme Court, a writ of c^rtiorari for a reviewal of
the Public Service Commission's refusal to grant a
permit ■■• the company to issue $10,000,000 worth, of
preferred stock to pay a dividend of 7 p«r cent
and *ai,wo.o<» of • p«r cent fifty-year gold bond 3
and to install an underground electric system
throughout the city.
John C- Sheehan, vice-president of the company,
represented to the court that the Public Service
Commission refused the original request and at a
aahsiasjßKSSt rehearing again denied the application,
for permission to issue stock and bonds. The pe
tition for the writ set forth that there was no law
ful reason for the refusal cf the commission, and
states that if the commission's position is sustained
It would ruin the company.
Justice Bischorf directed the Public Servlc* Com

TRADE SCHOOLS NEEDED,
Dr. Goodzcin Declares Present Edu
cational System Defective.
Albany. Oct. 24.— The present system of irutruc
tion in public schools was severely criticised by
I>r. Edward J. Goodwin, president of Packer Insti
tute, Brooklyn, at the closing session to-day of the
annual convocation of the University of the State
of Mew York. He emphasized the need for traits
and Industrial schools and courses. A discussion
followed, led hy i>r. Frank Rollins, second as
sistant commissioner of education. Dr. Goodwin
said, in part:
A second system of education for the Lnitei
States is yet to be worked out. When completed it
must provide for both charactpr development ani
adequate equipment for the battle at life. In re
cent times the American school has not kept pao-i
with national progress in production and methods
of doing business. The majority of children need v
different training in the public schools from that
which has been in vogue. Both the secondary anu
the elemeniarv schools are seriously defective in
the matter r.f adjustment to present conditions.
While there ha? been fome broadening of the scop-J
and improvement of the quality of instruction, edu
cators still largely icnore the Interests of that great
and growing class al Jboys who are to be wage earn
ers, artisans and tradesmen.
The indictment against our present scheme of
elementary instruction is that ft overburdens the
memory with iminterestlng and useless material.
Something must be done to induce tht-se pupils tfl
stay ir- school and finish courses that will preparn
them to periorm well their parts in the practical
affairs of life. The conception of trades Echools,
IndastrisJ &r.d business courßes, is the only thini;
that wii! do this.
There are tw> great reasons for the establish
ment of trade ana" industrial schools and courses
The first is ih- S"<»1 of the youth thessaelve tho
perond is the welfare of the nation in tiie upbuild
ing of its industries. The system of apprenticeship
has appeared, and. somehow, the public school
must be made to take Its place.- We are gradually
coming to recognize the Injustice of organizing: our
hleh schools In the interests of the few alone who
are able to command a eraJ or semi- liberal edu
cation. The demand for some special tratn ■- for
th" vocations is oase<! upon the impulse to resctif"
unfortui boys from social submersion, and ta
afford 'every wfillng worker a fair opportunity for

Practically nothing. They contribute in Xew York
State, for example, less than - per cent of the

When a description of the man under arrest was

is chairman of the speakers' bureau of the Re
publican National Committee and has arranged
the dates for the speeches.
"We are con-centrating our best speakers In
the three states in the last week, not because
we have any doubts as to carrying them, but
because we want our arguments to be placed
before the people so that the majorities may ca
made as heavy as possible," said Mr. Bennet.
"Never in the history of politics in New York
has there been such a series of important meet
ings as we have arranged for next week. The
Hat, not counting a regiment of small speakers,
is something like this: William H. Taft, James
S. Sherman, Governor Hughes, Senator Depew,
ex-Secretary Leslie M. Shaw, Senator DolHver.

"For Indiana the leading speaker? will be

PRESIDENT WILL NOT SPEAK.
When asked whether the President would
make a speech at any point, Mr. Bennet said:
"You can take my word that he will not leave
Washington until he g-oes to Oyster Bay to

credit the President with possible acceptance
of invitations coming- to him, but he settled the

Depew. who b) wanted in Kew York. "Vir?r!nia
Republicans are hopeful," Mr. Bennet said, "and
we want to aid them all we can."
President Roosevelt is- havinar considerable
amusement out of the hustle and bustle, and
even seriousness, of the situation. He induced
Postmaster Genera! Meyer to make some
speeches in Ohio, and Mr. Meyer ha!fe been sent
into one district that gives 1,000 Democratic ma
jority and another that barely pulls out with a
Republican plurality. Mr. Meyer protested to
the President ag-air.st this discrimination and
wanted to know what would happen if the Dem
oratic vote in those district- increased after he
spoke there. The President then told a joke on
himself, saying that when Henry Cabot Lodg^
first ran for Congress in Massachusetts he went
in:o four towns of the district and mad«>
speeches for Lodge. Each town gave a heavier
Democratic vote than ever before. "Lod£«
would never let me speak for him again," said
the President with a laugh. •
