and his murderers ran away. ,
MIngola and hi partner, Hernardo ,

with three friends when the live Strang-1

gola walked behind the bar to serve
them. They drank without paying.
Then four of them flashed u revolver

SUBWAY WRIT GOES
TO APPELLATE COURT
Jiisfiep Dnvis Ilefers ('use io

SIIKAHN TO FIOHT ON
Tlirenlens to (Jo to Court of Ap
jinils .McCnll Culls Con
Argument on the Injunction blocking
the subway contrnots will go before the
Appellate Division to-day for the sec
ond lime. Justice Ilavl of the Supreme
Court cstcrday referred the matter to
the higher court without giving an opin
ion. He explained that In a case of so
great public Importance It was best
to send the case to the Appellate Di
vision at once and not to spend time
giving nn opinion from which tin appeal
would surely be taken.
The lawyers spent all of yeMerdny
arguing before Justice Davis, as they
argued on Wednesday before Justice
Hendrlck, und u. on Tuesday they ar
gued before tho live Justices of the
Appellate Division. It was a live hoijr
session with plenty of acrimonious de
bate lietween Clarence .1. Shc-arn, law
yer for Mr. Hopper, the plaintiff, who
Is n partisan of W. It. Hearst, and the
lawyers for the city nnd the companies.
The upshot of It ull I that tho Ap
pellate Division may be expected to give
tin opinion to-morrow or nn Monday.
If they lefuse to continue the In
junction Justice McCnll, newly ap
pointed chairman of the Public Set vice
Commission, will take office ut once.
He Is leady If necessary to take charge
to-day. He expects to pa.Hn upon the
subway contracts himself and litis staved
off Impetuous demands that he take
ottlle immediately with the assurance
that the time of going Into the commis
sion Is his own concern He Is wnteh
Ing every move in the matter in
full conlldence that nothing ran U
done unless he does it himself
Clarence J. Sneiirn expressed him
self last night ns hopeful that the ca.se
could be taken to the Court of Appeals
when the Appellate Division hands
down Its decision. H thought the Jus
tlces would grant the ppeil In Mew
of there being no decision from the
Justice McCall was asked for hi
opinion on the law nnd said his under
standing of It was that the Appellate
Division had final Jurisdiction. The
Injunction, he .explained, was granted
pendente life, and the law provides
that arguments of such Injunctions are
terminable In the Appellate Division.
This opinion wa shnred by the lawyers
for the two rapid transit companies.
There remained no doubt, however,
thnt Mr Shearn would try to take an
appeal to the highest court tn the
Stnte In case the Appellate Division
decide ndilnst hts client's contention.
The effect of such tactics, in case he
Is allowed to appeal, will be to Tiold up
still longer action on the subway con
tracts. As for Justice McCnll be l deter
mined to puh matters to a conclusion
as soon ns possible. While there Is
every Indication that he Intend to
sign the contracts nnd while he will
take office to the exclusion of Mr. Will
cox by the time the Injunction Is raised,
ho will not waste any time with non
essentials. "Would It be fair to nsk how long
It will take you to go over those con
tracts?" was n question put to the Jus
"It won't take two months or two
weeks," he replied emphatically. "I
will work night nnd day on those con
tracts and find out nil I can about
them. Yes, I will get Mr Wlltcox's
"I am not afraid of thoe contracts
-understand that. I am not going
to try to evade tho responsibility."
Justice McCall came down town yes
terday morning with Mr. Wlllcox, and
they talked about Public Service Com
mission business for about nn hour and
a half. The Judge had heard that the
contracts bound the city for fifty-three
years and he wanted to satisfy him
self about this phase of the case.
"I was much disturbed when they
told me that the city was lound for
fifty-three years," he said. "It put a
disquieting aspect on the case and
raised a doubt In my mind as to
whether I had any right to delay tak
ing office f the city wns to bo com
mitted for so long n time to contracts
which, 1 had heard, were Inequitable.
So I took the contracts home last night
nnd read the clause dealing with tho
term of the lease.
"1 found thnt the city could take over
the subways at the end of ten years;
In the next place, that the city could
take It over In unit, n.s Its financial
condition warranted; In the third place,
that It could turn them over to an
Independent operator. I found nothing
about fifty-three years. 1 rend n good
deal about forty-nine years, So I Judged
from my rending that my Information
was far from correct. I nked Wlllcox
about It and he verified my own find
ings. He made no nrgument. about the
contracts he merely answered my
Justice McCnll was asked when he
would take the oath of office,
"I will lie ready by noon to-morrow,"
be said. "Hut I won't tako office then
unless the slay Is vacated."
"Will you take the oath ns soon as
tho Injunction Is dissolved?"
"And do you expect to sign the con
tracts?" "I do."
The Justice explained that unless tho
Injunction Is vacated there would be no
occasion for him to hurry In taking his
place on the commission.

liberally with both the spirit and the
letter of the decision of the Supreme
