Paris, April 12. The Association of
Telephone Subscribers was non Hiiitod
to-day in lt nctlon for damages against
tho State for interruption of tho tele
phono service after a flro at ono of the
big central telephono stations three years
ago. Tho court threw the case out on
tho ground that tho State cotlld not bo
held reson8ible for nny damages caused
by tho interrupted service. It declared
tliat if subscriliers could claim compensa
tion whenever theservlco was interrupted
it would bo impossible to carry it on.
This was a test case on tho part of tele
phono subscribers who have, nny com
plaints against the telephone service,
which is u State monopoly. After a (Ire
at tho Gutenberg central in IBOtt the ser
vice was Interrupted for some timo nnd
tho act ion for damages was instituted. The
defence offered by the Stato was that the
contract which the subscribers signed ex
pressly declared that tho Government
would not bo responsible for delays.

"I don't suppose much got over hero
about a banquet recently given In Lon

of Panama yesterday. Ho recently re
turned from a trip to England.
"Two or threo nights beforo I left Lon

P. Porter, at one timo superintendent
of our census, but now on tho staff of
the London Time', td this dinner. I was
tho only American present, for I heard
Mr. Porter make the declaration that
he was an Englishman. There wero Sir
Charles Lawrence, tho principal owner
of tho Ilollvlan railways, nnd J. White
Todd, tho head man of the Argentine
railways. Most of tho others were diplo
tnatic representatives of I,atin-American
countries from Mexico down.
"It may jar Homo of our statesmen
over here to learn that the undercurrent
of everything that was said at that ban
quet was antagonistic to the Culted
States. I may except I,ord Northcliffo's
own speech, which was carefully pre
pared. Hut every one of those diploma
tists said how anxious his country
was for closer and stronger ties with
England. It was apparent that tho ob
ject of the banquet was to give oppor
tunity for some such expression.
"It was I list after Roosevelt made his
speech at Los Angeles, whero he said
'When I took Panama,' and some of tho
speakers evidently took their cue from
that. The Colombian Minister went fur

Hilling to Tap All FIVe Boroughs If Al
lowed to Tunnel t'mler Hroadway
The Nhnnls Company Could Stand
All Kxcept llroadnay Part of It,
Col. Timothy S. Williams, president
of tho Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company,
said yesterday that for several weeliB
his company has had a proposal for the
building of the triborotlgh line before the
Public Service Commission and tho com
mittee of tho Board of Estimate, but that
tho conferees had so far taken no notice
or it. But it is said that at every meeting
of the conferees with the representatives
of tho I nler borough Company the B. R. T.
scheme Is being used as a club to try
to force tho Interborough Company to
accept tho terms which hnvo been tenta
tively suggested by tho commission and
tho Board of Estimate's commlttoo.
Col. Williams has informed the com
mission Hint with tho financial assistance
which the city has for now subways and
with tho support of other financial Inter
ests ills company Is qulto wilting to am
plify its plans so that it will undertake
building the trlborough route and make
it part of tho Brooklyn system.
Tho Interborough Company. It Is said,
wouldn't mind tho granting of the con
tract for the triborotlgh road to tho
II. R. T., but inslfts that the Brooklyn
company must keep out of Broadway,
Manhattan. The Interborough, it is said,
has informed tho Public Service Com
mission that It will not attempt to extend
the present Biibway If the B. R. T.isallowed
to tunnel under Broadway. Tho B. R. T.
Company on its part has made it plain
that it would not consider any proposi
tion to extend its system unless it could
have Broadway for a trunk llnd for the
distributing of passengers by means
of branch lines over the bridges to Brook
lyn and Queens.
The first formal offer made by the B
R. T. provided for a route coming undor
the East River to tho lower part of Man
hattan and then for a subway under
Broadway to Ninth street and thenco by
a devious route lo Fifty-ninth street,
whence the trains would return to Brook
lyn over Quoensboro Bridge. But rather
than loso the Broadway route the B. R.T.
is prepared to negotiate for the construc
tion of tho entire triborough route, and
further than that build a branch of the
Fourth avenue (Brooklyn) subway under
the Narrows to Richmond, which would
mean that its lines-would tap all the live
boroughs of tho city.
Thero seems to be little possibility that
tho conference committees will come to
an understanding by the end of this week.
Tho majority of the conferees are in favor
of allowing tho Interborough to extend
tho present subway, but under more ad
vantageous conditions to tho city than
the Interborough is prepared to accept.
Col. Williams said yesterday:
before the Brooklyn llnpld Transit Com
pany filed its subway proposal it empha-sli-ed
Informally lo the city's odlclals and
the members of the Public Service Commis
sion thnt His proposition wns not to be
leRariled as furnlshlm; a club to assist
the-city In its neKotiatlons with the lntrr
Wo insisted that the proposal should
he treated on Its merits ns a plan primarily
for solving Brooklyn's transportation needs:
Hint It was not presented In nntsi:onlsm
to the InterboroiiKh Company nor with
nny desire to compete with that company
ror Manhattan business, but solely with the
view of Rlvinii Brooklyn, Queens and Rich
mond people through transportation trom
those borouuhs Into and through the busi
ness centres of Manhattan.
We should have preferred postponing
tho filing of our proposal until after the
city should have acted upon the Inter
lioroush proposal, hut Hint would not have
been fair either to tho city's representa
tives or lo our people, We cannot con
ceive, therefore, that the city's representa
tives nre for n moment uslnc our proposal
ns a means to procure better terms from
t tie Interhorouuh Company, as Is sucKesled
In publications in this morninn's news
pniiers. Such a use of our proposal would
be not only inconsistent with tho appar
ently sincere and conscientious study which
the joint committee has idvcn to our project,
hut would ho a breach of cood faith nnd
n marked disregard of the interests ot the
people of llrooklyn.
As the situation Is now left every essential
