THE LAW IN THE
THiANGLE FIRE CASE.
Manslaughter ?n the first degree.
"Such horricide is manslaughter m
the first degree when committed
without desMj.fi to effect death:
"By a person engaged in commit?
ting, or attempting to commit, a mis?
demeanor affecting the person or
property either of the person killed
or of another"
Manslaughter in the second degree.
"Such homicide is manslaughter in
the second degree when committed
without design to effect death:
"... By any act, procurement
or culpable negligence of any person
which does not constitute the crime
of murder m the first or second de?
gree, or manslaughter in the first
degree."
The indictments were predicated on
the allegation that the defendants, as
proprietors of the Triangle Waist
Company, committed a misdemeanor
in violating Section 80 of the labor
Isw, which provides that:
"All doors leading in or to any fac?
tory . . . shall not be locked, bolted
or fastened during working hours."

< 'omn*lsalon??r Maltbie ??f the PubUc Ser
v i<e Commission, in speaking ?>f the operat?
ing contracts that have been drawn up foi
the n?'*A BUbway lines, sanl yesterday:
'it has been the policy of tlie commission
to draw up forms Of contract w hi'ii it
has thus far advertised, in such a way that
any corporation Wishing to hi?l might sub?
mit an offer. This poUcy ha? been fol?
lowed in preparing a torm Of contract for
the operation of the Domprcbcnslvs system
of Bubarsys non b? ;n-? cotastructed and ti?
be constructed with <-itv money, it would
ObVlOUSly be futile and unwise to gdVOT
tise for public bidding any contract upon
which only oik- COmpan) ? ?uld possibly
bid."
The ConMxdsstonsr said th??re might be
various special Inducements offered by dif?
ferent companies, which would be consid?
ered by the public authorities.
"For example.'' bS said, "one company '
in making a bid might offer tr.in-.fT privi?
leges to Iin"s whi'h it now op"rates and
controls Another might offer a cash pay*
ment to the cltv. which would operate to
release bonds from the provision of the
debt limit, thus enabling the city to spend
the mono) on subways okMWheN
"8till another c? m? any might offer the
city a very large annual return. When tiie
fariOUS otters have been received, it ?rill be
for ibe public authorities to consider wl Ich
?offer, from all points of vies. Is the m<-?st
! advantageous 'or the city."
