REFUSES TO LIFT
SUBWAY STAY
Justice Hendrick Decides That Interests ol
City Demand Thorough Airing
of Contracts in Court.
MAY MEAN MANY WEEKS' DELAY
Davis to Hear Argument To-day, and I hen Will
Reserve Decision?McCall Says He Will Fake
Office as .Soon as Stay Is Removed?Will
Take Time to Study Problem.
Hope that William R. Willcox, chairman of the Public Service
Commission, would be able to sign the subway contracts before
going out of office vanished yesterday, when Judge Edward E.
McCall announced he would take office as Chairman Willcox's suc?
cessor immediately upon the vacation of the court stay, if not before
This means further delay and uncertainty, as Judge McCall will
have to have some time to study the contiacts. It is thought he
will approve them, but he may desire some changes.
Supreme Court Justice Peter A. Hendrick denied an application
to vacate the injunction restraining the commission from executing
the contracts, issued by him Tuesday.
The city argued that the facts alleged in the Hopper suit were
the same as those decided by the Court of Appeals in favor of the
city last year
Justice Hendrick said he thought the allegations that the con?
tracts were opposed to the best interests of the city should be
thrashed out in open court. The return of the injunction order will,
therefore, come before Justice Vernon M. Davis at 10:30 o'clock
this morning, as originally set down.
Justice Davis, speaking privately, said he would probably re?
serve decision for a few days.
Pressure was brought to bear on Judge McCall to take the oath
of office immediately, but he will spend two or three clays cleaning
up present work, unless the stay is vacated before.
The Pu,blic Service Commission held four meetings yesterday. ;
hoping that the injunction would be vacated or some other develop?
ment arise that would enable them to act.
The contracts with the Interborough and the Brooklyn Rapid
Transit Company, as finally agreed upon, were delivered in printed
form. They would have been adopted by the commission had the i
injunction been vacated.
The contracts were made public by the commission. There ?
were some three hundred or more changes made since the draft;
forms presented at the hearings. Most of thirm were in phrasing,
however. Only a few were of vital importance. The Interborough
ha? agreed to pay the $535.000 taxes on the Steinway tunnel.
Provision permitting the taking by the city of present lines at |
ihe end of thirty-five years at estimate of the value at that time
was eliminated. Critics of the contracts declared this would cost
the city some $40.000,000, although, as a matter of fact, option would
never have been exercised in that way.
Coney Island five-cent fare provisions were so changed as to
leave no doubt of its going into effect as soon as trains could be
operated to the island from the Municipal Building, Manhattan, by |
way of the Fourth avenue subway.

WALSH CONFESSES
ALL TO WHITMAN
Accused Police Captain. Fearing Death, Bares
Inner Secrets of "System"?Implicates
Inspector Sweeney.
TELLS HOW GRAFT WAS SPLIT
Declares 50 Per Cent o? Vice Tribute Went to Su*
rporior? Will Go Before Grand Jury and Bare
Corrupt Alliance Between Police and Tamman?
to Levy on Crime in Harlem.
Police Captain Thomas W. Walsh has dealt the "System*' the/
worst Mow it ever received. Before District Attorney Whitman
tld other witnesses he made full confession last night of all he knew
of police graft and its alliance with Tammany.
Inspector Dennis P. Sweenev received 50 per cent of all graft
collected by Patrolman Eugene F. Fox, according to the statement
le by Walsh. The police inspector's graft, Walsh said, was split
v ith one of the deputy commissioners, who was on close terms withv
Sweeney
Inspector Sweeney yesterday started suit for $100,000 damage?
for libel against the Prest Puhlishing Company ("The New Yorlt
World") for <:harges made several days ago that he was the recip?
ient of ??raft. Charles F. Kelley. of No. 203 Broadway, as coun?
sel, tiled the summons, which was served on J. Angus Shaw, treas?
urer of the company. There is no complaint yet in the action,
sector John F. Dwyer testified at the Curran inquiry yes-?
terday that there was not now a disorderly house in the Tenderloin
