An Hxprcss Station at Fifty-ninth Street.

Call for the constructioa Of an express station In

may havo been pomo justification for buOding only
a local station tin-re originally. In any event, the
growth of the aurrounding district, both as a bust?

Thoro is the additional fact of the crosatown lino
at this point. Owing ?" the existence <'f ?Central

certainly be utilized to the maximum advantage.

The Subsidies and Treaty Breakers Clear
The House of .Representatives will probablj take
op to-day the Sims measure repealing iiio coastwise
shipping tolls exemption clause o? the Panama
Canal law. President \\ ison bas asked for that
repeal on the i?i*-'ii ground thai the exemption has
i>?'?'ti universally construed by foreign opinion as
s violation of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty and tbat
the United States ought noi to quibble over the
question of making ^.I its word. He might bave
added thai if ii la desired to retain for coaatwiae
shipping the benefits of a remission of canal toils it
is open i" Congress i" vote the coaatwiae lines i
direct sui.sj.iy equal t<> their canal charges.
it will be Interesting i<? see ?.?n what grounds iii?*
anti-repealers will base their opposition t.? ih?* rectl
Acatlon of what Is considered by foreigners and by
most fatrmlnded Americans as a breach of interna
tii.nal faith, 'iii?* sentiment expressed al iio? antl
repeal mass meeting at Carnegie Hall the other
nigbl waa that the treaty breaking ? barged was, <>n
tin? whole, a ?*ooii thing. According to the president
of tin? meeting, the Importance of the Britlah pro
teal ?li'i not consist in the fact that it related to
toils ami the possible cheapening of tranaportation
mies between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, u
consisted in Hi?' claim of Great Britain that al?
though Ui<* United States has be ome.tbe sovereign
over the territory In which the ?anal is built ami
must toar the sole expense of maintaining and
policing it. Great Britain, so far as the* benefits of
toil nit.-s ?re concerned, is to remain an equal
partner in tho enterprise. Thai is tiio view of these
who think that the Hay-Fauncefote treaty ought t"
l?o voided and who bold that when Congress paased
the coa<twis,? trade exemption clause it deliberately
lnten<i?-<i to void it. it 1s a candid confession that
tin? granting of free tolls to coaatwiae shipping was
only a roundabout way of denouncing the treaty.
Mr. Underwood afl<i his followers bave taken the
contradictory view thai Congress had no desire to
lumu. iiio treaty, but waa intent only on giving an
indirect subsidy to coastwise shipping. According
to their predilections, therefore, the opponents of
repeal will lino up either as avowed treaty wreck?
ers or as avowed snbsldists.
Tammany will stand solidly for repeal, it la an.
