DIX SIGNS SUBWAYS
(DLL, MAKING IT LAW
And Mayor Gaynor Approves Five
Links in the New Btpid
SOMETHING DOING NOW
Mayor Will Have to Approve Re
vised Routes, but Things
Arc a Lot Clearer.
Mayor Claynor approval yesterday
five link in llip new rapid transit sys
tem. Coincident!)- came ths nswa from
Albany that Uov. Dix had sinned th
Wagner subways hill, thus making, it a
law and giving the Board of Kstimate
and the Public fWvlce Commission power
. to treat with the InterboroiiKh and the
Brooklyn Hapid Transit Company for
extensions of the subway system without
putting contracts up for public bidding.
One of the line which the Mayor au
thorised is the B. It T '. lineacroHs Fifty
ninth street to tin' Queeiisboro Bridge,
with connections into Queens county.
Thi is the ltn which tin Mayor lined
to call "the cornfield route." lie with
held hi approval for several months
on the mro that there wae no good reason
for approving sfiurs when trunk linen
were Mill only paer route. Hi func
tion yesterday put these routes into
a way of becoming real subway
It wa aid yesterday at the office of
the Brooklyn Hapid Transit Company,
which is mnie affected by the Mayor'
action than i the Interborough, that
the mutes a specified will have to be
mended or at least amplified. The
Public Service Commission and the Board
of Estimate passed upon them last fall,
but aince then there have been important
changes in the subway scheme. In one
case, it wr pointed out, the Mayor ap
proved a line which the B. II. T. originally
asked for, hut which hu been eliminated
from it programme because certain
other connecting lines are in tho Inter;
borough allotment Now the B, H. T.'
doesn't want it and the Interborough
has other lines which appear to erve
its purpose. In another case the Mayor
contemplate simply a two track subway
on on of the Brooklyn routes, whereas
the present scheme of the negotiators
calls for a six track subway. Hut on
the whole the Mayor's action clears up
the subway situation appreciably.
The five link which the Mayor ap
proved are these: A subway under Fifty
ninth street from Seventh avenue to
Queensboro Bridge and four track
on the bridge to Iawr Island; elevated
lines fiom tjueensboro Bridge plar.a
to Astoria and to Woodside and Corona,
the route from Woodside to Corona pass
ing over Uoosevelt avenue; a two track
subway under Flatbush avenue from
the Long Island Railroad statioti to Pros
pect Park and thence to a connection
with the Malboue street station of the
B. B. T 's Biighton Beach elerated line;
a, subway under KAstern Parkway to
Buffalo avenue, with a Nostra ml avenue
extension south to Flathuah avenue
and a I.ivonia extension to New Ixits
road, and an elevated extension on Ctica
avenue running south from Katern
m The lines in Queens county, especially
those from the Queen shoro Bridge
Plaza, have been matters of discussion
for a long time. Delegations of Queens
county citizens have appeared at meeting
of the Board of Estimate who have tried
to get the Mayor's approval. I-ate in
Janiary Borough President Connolly
tried to force the Mayor's hand by intro
ducing a resolution nt a meeting of the
Bos.nl of Kstimate asking that the Mayor
make up his mind with as little delay as
possible. Action on the resolution was
delayed a week, and when it came before
the board for its approval, Mr Gaynor
got out of the meeting, remarking that
'this is a matter which is in my hands,
and I guess it is in pretty safe hands."
"When we are ready to build and have
money to build," he added, "I will sign
so quickly that it will make your head
rr im "
Under the present plan the lines leading
away from the plaza at the other end of
the Qtieensboro Bridge are for tha Joint
use of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit and the
Interborough, On the bridge there is
room for four tracks, two for each com-
' pany The B, K, T. expects to run trains
from Corona and Astoria to southern
, Manhattan by way of the bridge, the
Fifty-ninth street subway and its Broad
way line to the Battery, and thence by
a tunnel, probably leaving the Manhattan
shore at Whitehall street and coining
out in Brooklyn at or near Pineapple
street. It was said yesterday that the
B. P.. T will probably run trains on the
Long Island shore directly from Astoria
to Conev Island, at least in the summer
'Ihe Interborough will put trains over
the Corona and Astoria routes tu the
Queensboro Plaza over the bridge
to a connection with Ihe Second avenue
elevated line in Manhattan. The plan
also is that the Interborough shall run
trains down the Long Island shore from
the Queensboro Plaza to Ihe Belmont
, tunnel and so to u connection with its
Biibway lines in Manhattan.
The sanction of the Fifty-ninth street
subway clinches the B. K. TV hold on the
Broadway subway in Manhattan and
assures it a Mauhat;an outlet for its
Brooklyn eleyaled. lines. The Mayor ro
ferred to this route in an interview nub
. lished in Tiif. Hu.n in tliis way:
"It is being built for the purpose of
carrying the passengers of the Brooklyn
overhead roads up through .Manhattan.
If you just look at the Brooklyn map you
will ee that the elevated o'r overhead
roads, five of them, separate out from
practically one point llkn the ribs of a
ian across Brooklyn In different directions.
Of course I do not refer to the Broadway
load in Williamsburg. These overhead
loads are to be continued through a
tunnel over to Manhattan to connect with
this Broadway route, and In that way the
passengers of these overhead roads will
bocelTux. uptowr through Broadway."
The Fiblio Ktrrvice Commission
alreuoy ret contracts tor several seviious
of the Broadway subway,
The Mayor sanctioned ihe Fastern Park
way subwuyfrom the junction of Atlantic:
and Flatbush avenues, the Krooklvn ter
minus of the present subway, to Buffalo
avenue. The silbwuy pusses out Flat hush
avenue as far os the Cirri- near Prosmiot

He thought that some sort of action
would hse to be taken to modify the
Mayor's authorization, or else that the
line would have to be left dormant.
Another variation from the Mayor's
action yesterday would have to be In that
part of the Eastern Parkwav line which

Mayor approved simply a two track sub

the Brighton Beach line with our subway
routes in Brooklyn. In recompense for
the capital which we will provide for this
line the understanding is that even If
the city should take over the subway
we should retain trackage rights to
the terminus of the Fourth avenue sub
way near the Long Island station, thus
assuring us of a right of, way through to
our Manhattan Bridge lines. We will
need two tracks In addition to whatever
the Interborough needs under Flatbush

Chairman William II Wlllcox remarked
at a session of the Public Bervice Com
mission yesterday that in a few davs the
commission would be ready to send over
to the Board of tiKstlmate in a few day
an approved route for a tunnel under
Fourteenth street and! the Kast Blver

part of the B. K, T 's programme and
would connect with it Broadway-line in

as to the extent of the disaster. The
company which operates the ferry main
tains that only two or three were drowned.
Other reports place the casualties at from
fifteen to fifty. The names and nationali
ties of those drowned cannot be obtained.
The survivors say there was a terrible

occurred. The vessel was Immediately
headed for the bank and ropsa which were
thrown from the vessel were seized by
the people ashore who held the vessel
fast. Planks were laid 10 the steamer
and then a desperate rush and Mrtiggle
to get ashore followed. The bank was
steep and several of these who had landed
slipped back into the water and were
drowned. The steamer sank in five min
utes and many of those still aboard went
down with her. It was impossible for the
larger part af the people to disembark
before the boat went down, but a cargo
steamer near by resoued mny who fell
into the water.
The ferry was bound from old Cairo
to Chiseh. across the river. A holiday

Soecial Agent Baughn talked freely
of tne case this afternoon
"The city has employed me to ferret
out the mystery." he ssid. "and I want
to be perfectly frank about It The evi
dence I have gathered is incontrovertible,
satisfying no onlv myself hut the city
authorities that Mr, Beach himself made
the assault upon his wife and invented the
theory of an 'unknown negro' which hss
bean exploited to conceal his own guilt,
else no warrant would have been served
But if any one ran throw any light 011 the
matter I should be glad to follow any
line indicated in an honet. sincere effort
to do full justice to Mr. Beach. We have
the knife that was used."
He explained that the blade with which
the cut was made had been broken out
of the knife before it tame into hi pos
session, but that the stain on the remain
ing fragment of the blade and on the
other blade show under microscopic ex
amination to contain blood cubes. The
break in the blade is fresh, showing that
it was madn verv tecently.
"Mr. Beach'a knife." continued Mr
Ha ugh 11. "is merely an incident, however,
in the chain of evidence. We consider it
important, but by no means the most im
x.rtant. We have affidavits from eye
witnesses to a niimhe- of things which
transpired that night, both before and
after the attack upon Mrs. Beach."
Baughn said the prosecution is pre
pared, if necesarv. to present evidence
which will creates sensation in thehigheri

The warrant for Beach was sworn out

ssue a requisition upon Gov Dix of New

was not issued to-day. but will be sent to
Gov. Dix to-morrow The procedure
then will require that Gov. Oix shall ask
for the extradition of Beach if necessity.
The accusation of Beach is the climax
of an affair which has puxzled society
On the night of February 18 last, Mrs

with a knife and tore out her earrings,
which she valued highly as heirlooms,
and which were found on the lawn after
ward. The attack provoked intense Indigna
tion among the inenibei of the Aiken
winter colony. C. Oliver Iselin. Aiken's
founder as a winter resort, offered a le
ward of ll.noo for the capture of Mrs,
Beaeh's assailant. Besides writing to

pleasure to participate in the lynching

Mr. Iselin sent for bloodhounds in the at

tbeir quest waa vain. Clarence W. Dolan
