Board of Estimate Not Likoly
to Yield to Interborough
The Interborough company h re
ject t and the4, Brooklyn Rapid Transit.
Company ha accepted the proposal
drawn tip by the conference committees
of the Public Service Commission and tho
Board of Ks'imat for the. division of sub
way. Th decision of the Interborough com
pany was reached late yesterday after
noon after consultations which took up
mot of Monday and yesterday. The
opinion of the directors, it is understood
was not unanimous. Several of the
members of the board were said to have
favored accepting the city's proposition
even though it did let the Brooklyn com
pany into Manhattan, chiefly for the
.eason that the Interborough would be
allowed to third track its elevated lines.
It was finally decided, however, by a
majority that the company had more to
lose than gain and President Shont was
ordered by the board to write to the
city's committees that the company could
A letter to this effect was sent yester
day afternoon to Borough President
McAneny and Chairman Willcox of the
Public Service Commission. About nn
hour later a communication came from
th Brooklyn Bapid Transit Company
accepting the city's offer save that some
modifications were suggested in the terms
proposed by the city for the division of
profits and in the lengths of the leases
When the Board of F.stimate adopted
last week the report of the joint commit
tees a resolution was passed providing
that if either company relueed the terms
the company accepting should have the
right to build the linen allotted to the
When President Williams of the Brook
lyn company learned last evening of the
rejection of the McAneny-Willcox pro
posals by the Interborough he was asked
if Ills company would take advantage of
"All that I can say now." replied Col.
Williams, "is that I can make the assur
ance that the Brooklyn Ripid Transit
Company will stand by its supplementary
offer of April 2S. In this offer the Brooklyn
.eimpany obligated itself to Uilld the, Lex
ington avenue section of the triborough
route from Ninth street, north to The
Bronx, the Southern Boulevard and West
Chester avenue line, the Jerome avenue
line as far as Kingsbridge road, the lines
to Astoria, Woodside and Corona, the line
running from Union Square, Manhattan,
undr the East River to the Eastern dis
trict of Brooklyn, the Nostrand avenue
extension from Eastern Parkway to
Flatbush avenue and the Livonia avenue
extension from the Eastern Parkway at
Buffalo avenue to New Its road "
The refusal of the Interlxrough com
pany to consider the city's proposition
camo as a disappointment to the members
of the Public Service Commission and of
the municipal administration with the
single exception of Mayor Oaynor. The
Mayor ha always favored the Inter
borough plan on the ground that it would
provide transit between The Bronx and
Brooklyn for a single faro. During the
last few days when even some of the
directors of the Interborough company
have been saying that their company
would find it advantageous to accept the
city's term it is well known that Mayor
Oaynor has held the opinion that the
Interborough would balk on the proposi
tion to allow the Brooklyn Rapid Transit
Company to compete with its system in
this borough When he was told yesterday
of the answer he remarked with a chuckle,
"It a an old adage that you can lead a
horse to the water, hut you can't make
him drink "
Borough President McAneny, Comp
troller Prendergast and President Mitchel
ot the Hoard of Aldermen, who have eight
out of the sixteen votes on the Board of
Estimate, announced that they would
stand by the report of the committee.
Borough President Miller of The Bronx
can also be counted on to vote against
the Interborough scheme so that the
prospect of an early beginning TIT con
struction is by no means rosy. Chairman
Wlllcox of the Public Service Commission
mid last night that the commission would
stick for the report of the conference com
mittees, but the members of the com
mission have no vote in the Board of
Estimate and the subway situation now
rests with that body.

answering Mr, McAneny and Mr. Willcox

A young man went Into the jewelry
store of William Koontz at 163 West 125th

pencil back of one ear.
I Just ran over from the drug store,"
he said, "pnd 1 want to look at a nice

The jewelir brought out a tray and
pulled some of the larger ring out of
their places. The visitor wasn't quite
certain, and at the minute when he
seemed to be making up his mind allot her
men came in. He shoved a watch in the
Jeweller's face and said he would like to
have It fixed at once. Mr. KonntTi took
the watch nnd the second visitor left,
promising to be hack in half an hour.
The young man without n hat decided he
would wait a day or so before making
up his mind and t hen he departed,
Mr. Koontx looked at the ring case and
saw that every place was filled. Then he
put the case away. The next day In
checking over his stock he found that one
of the largest rings, worth IV10. had been
stolen and a small diamond ring which
could be bought for 2S had been put in
ll this was the "pennyweight game,"
which two clever men have been winking
in Vow ork and smaller towns for more
thwi 11 month. Dozens of complaints
came in to the jewelry trade jotirnsls.
They published descriptions of the men
and their trick and sent out circulars

from M cents to 1 m. which they never

Another instance nf lenl robbery as
practised by your subscribers we relate
of how one jeweller, after telling us that
white sapphire were worth 111 a carat

the tag marks on, the sapphires from

reached over and transplanted somo of

We thought we had met An honest jeweller
down here, but he also tried to vaccinate

that he had met with a loss, but wondered
how it had been found out, for he had

was gradually inciensed to n length at
the three mile mark the lthacans saved
their energy until the last Then they
camo from behind with superb gnmeness
and In n jiffy Columbia's hopes were gone.
Cornell won by almost a length and a
half, Columbia having four lengths over
Pennsylvania, the Quaker being third
all the way. Wisconsin was only a few
feet behind the (Junkers, with Syracuse
many length awny
Columbia's sudden defeat wa par
tially due to lack of stamina. Cornell's
great endurance was n heart, breaker.
F.. W. Sage, bow oar in the Columbia
shell, collapsed when the crew had a
quarter of a mile to go. He fell forward
on his oar and caused No. 2 to catch
a crab. Sage pluckily tried to resume his
task and rowed a few strokes, when he

because tho revenue Cutters kept the

Wisconsin were neur the starting point.
The Badger took their time paddling

patiently. The position assigned t
tho crew placed Pennsylvania nearest
