Dual System.
The Gould hlocknde of new subway
plana caused the greatest concern yes
terday In the City 1 fall and tit the
offices of the. Public Service Commis
sion. The city otllccrs hud no hope
to give as to a time of settlement. They
have plans for fighting the embargo, but
none, of them doubted thnt the dual
system Is In grave peril In a more
serious plight, Indeed, than nt any time
since the Interborough rent Its offer
to the Public Service Commission u
year ago this morning.
It Is u plain case of a standup flght
between the Interborough and the Man
hattan Hallway Company, with the city
standing by ns a vitally interested
spectator. The Interborough with the
baching of J. 1. Morgan & Co. is lined
up against George J. Could 'and his
brothers, and yesterday it appeared that
the Goulds had a technical advantage.
The Krooklyn Kapld Transit Com
pany, with Its $3,000 a day Interest
charge on idle subway money, is eager
to have the dispute settled. Col. T. S.
Williams, president of the H. 11. T..
asked the Public Service Commission
yesterday to pass upon the contracts
which affect his company, without wait
lug for a settlement of the Interbor
ough difficulties. The city Is at present
unwilling to make any agreement which
does not Include the entire dual system.
George J. Gould held his peace all
day. Ho refused himself to callers at
his office and his lawyer, T. I.. Chad
bourne, Jr., said ha was not qualified
to give, out uny Information as to Mr.
Gould's objections to the jd.ui. At the
same time reports were current in Wall
Street Hud..M-tlie City Hall that Mr.
Gould had offered the SI, 101 shares of
" .' ... .'".. '-.:
Manhattan stock hem by tus tarn.. to
the internorougli nnu was waning ior

above market rotes would be about $3,
540,943. It is very strange, remarked III-
iam It. Wlllcox, who was chairman of
the Publlo Servico Commission through
out tho negotiations between the city
and tho Interborough and the Man
hattan Hallway Compnny. "that tho
twenty pages of reasons why the Man
hattan stockholders aro aggrieved un
der the certificates should not be given
to the public, und that In the whole
course of two years of negotiations
thesw objections were not raised."
Those who looked at the matter from
Mr. Gould's side said that the burden
of his objections begun and ended In
this, thnt tho Manhattan company was
not getting any direct advantage from
the contracts. The company receives 7
per cent, on Its stock nnd Interest on
Its bonds from the Interborough In
consideration of the DOU year lease of
the elevated lines. I'nder tho proposed
dual system contracts the Interborough
would stund to make an Increased profit
from the elevated lines, and yet the
Manhattan stockholders would still be
getting their 7 per cent, and no more.
It wns suggested that the Manhattan
Hallway Company would I glad to
provldn tho !30,000,000 which the In
terborough company purposes to spend
on third trncklng nnd extending tho
elevated lines of the Manhattan. In
that case. It would expect a revision of
tho leaso with the Interlonjugh so
that the stockholders would receive
morn than 7 por cent.
It Is that leaso which Is the. crux
of the whols affair. It was said yes
terday that tho Interborough when Mr.
Khonts heurd that Mr. (lould wanted a
revision of the termB of th certificate,
or, as Mr. Shonta's partisans say, to
sell his stock to the interborough,
threatened to break tho lease.
"Very well," so Mr. flould Is reported
to havo replied, "go nhcad and break
It Wo would be Just as happy."
According to tho Interborough's last
annual report, tho company made n
profit from the elevated lines above
the amount paid out as rental or ji,tui
036. The net operating revenue of the
elevated lines was $7,458,602. The rentnl
paid to the Manhattan stockholders
und bondholders was $5,851,080. With
an outlay of $6,576 for additional rentals

Ciitc'Ano, Feb. 26. Snow fell In nearly'
every Htnte north of the Mason and
Dixon line to-day. In the South gen
eral rains were reported.
in Chicago snow began falling on
Tuesday night and at midnight to-night
was still coming down briskly. It Is pre
dicted the storm will last here until
some time to-morrow and a cold wave
from the Northwest Is predicted for
Thursday morning.
Snow was reported to-day In Michi

points.
Further prediction Is mode that the
temperature In the Central and Fast

morrow. Fanners of the winter wheat States
welcome the snow, In some sections
the wheat was reported without snow
covering and a severe drop In tempera
ture would have meant disaster to the.
crop.
A despatch from Los Angeles says that
employees of the Carnegie Observatory
on Mount Wilson are blocked In by
snow 30 feet deep. Their food sup

to be greatly reduced if some means
of getting them out Is not found soon.

Munich, Feb, 26. Tho Dunautrltung,
the organ of the Havarlan Centre (the
Catholics), claims authority for the
statement that the law In regard to
succession to tho Austrian throne will

likely to become worse.
It has been common gossip for sev

throne had a tendency toward con
sumption, lie has been consulting
specialists for some time past. He
c.ime here In 1010 to see some famous
doctors, and went to Vienna and Prague

Special Cable rtetpateh to Tim Sis
Loniion, Feb. 26. The Cairo corre
spondent of the Pall Mall Oaiettr. tele
graphs a story In circulation there to
the effect that J. Plerpont Morgan with
n party of friends recently drove to
Luxor to view the famous temples of
Knrnnk. Mr. Morgan was not feeling
very well and he wanted to drlvo around
the temples. The native official In
charge, however, forbade this.
Mr. Morgan then Vent his secretary to
Interview the Government Inspector,
who said he was sorry, but h could not
permit even the Khedive to do this. He
added: "Only tho otner flny vro were
obliged to refuso u Hussion Princess
similar permission."
Mr. Morgan protested thnt he was not
well and could not wulk. whereupon the
Inspector suggested thnt there were
plenty of Invalid chairs and there was
no objection to his using one of them.
Mr. Morgnn's secretary hero Interposed
nnd said: "If Mr. Morgan was carried
around Karnak In an Invalid's chair the
news would da telegraphed to America.
It would be sold that he was too 111 to
use his legs nnd there would be a great
financial panic."
Kven this did not move tho official,
The correspondent does not mako It
clear whether Mr. Morgan was actually

by saying that "Mr. Morgan for once

Havana, Feb. 26. Shouting "Viva
Cuba libra," Clprlano Castro, former
President of Venezuela, came ashore
hero this morning. Two 'tTIgs crowded
with passengers went out to meet the
former Chief F.xecutlve of Vencmlela ns
the steamer Saratoga approached the
harbor. One of these tugs carried the
"Conservative youth" and the municipal
band, which had been lent for tho oc
casion by Mayor Freyre Andrade. The
tugs escorted the steamer Into the har
bor. Congressman Pardo made an address
of welcome. In which he described Cas
tro as tho representative of the noble
aspirations of the Latin race.
Castro In reply said he felt at home I
In Cuba, -which deserves to have full I
freedom. He concluded by shouting I
"Viva la Itepubllca Cubana!" To this I
the Cubans replied-' with "Viva Ven
ezuela!" The newspaper Cuba, which got lnto
ouble recently because of slanders on i
trouble recently
the American Minister and the secre
tary of the American Legation, says the
fathering hero of ex-Presidents Castro
of Venezuela, Heyes of Colombia and
Zelayn of Nicaragua and also of many
Mexican rerugees offers on auspicious

concerted plans to check American Im
perialism. F.x-Prcsldent Reyes visited President
Gome to-day. F.-Presdent Castro
will probaldy call on him to-morrow.
Zclaya Is expected to arrive In a couple
of days.
A great crowd gathered on the wharf
and cheered os the Venezuelan landed.
Fully 2,000 persons escorted Castro's
automobile to Central Park. Here the
former dictator alighted nnd npproached
the statue of Marti on which he laid a
laurel wreath and made a few remarks
In which he upostrophlred the Cuban

As Castro passed the palace on his
way to the Hotel he stood up In the car
and cried "Viva Cuba libra'" The pal
ace windows were all empty and there
was no ono on the balconies to reply.
Castro's most Intimate friends are
Oumlrlslndo Hlvn and Manuel Sllveiro.
The former was the banking partner
of the late Juan Cebollos of New York.
Senor Sllvelra helped to finance the
Cuban revolution of 1906 nnd then fled1
to Venezuela, carrying off so large nj
sum. It Is said, that the firm of Cehallns
& Sllvelra foiled. Castro entertained
him at that time,
Castro studiously poses ns a perse
cuted martyr, which grently appeals to
the Cubans. He declares that he Is no
conspirator, but he Is being closely
watched 'by American secret service
men who accompanied him from New
York and will remain here. The Cuban
Government Is also watching him nt
tho request of the Venezuelan Charge
d'Affnlres, who visited President Gomez
to-day nnd asked that n watch bo kept
on his movements. Tho I'nlted States,
doubtless, also made a similar request.
It seems probable that Castro will re
main quietly In Havana for a few days
nnd will then try to slip owny to the
eastward aboard a schooner which, It
Is rumored, Is waiting for him off tli."
coast to take him to Venezuela. Tho
detectives will keep a cose watch on
him, and this plan will doubtless be de
fented. If the Venezuelan Government really
wants to punish Castro thero Is a good
opportunity now, as there Is an extra
dition treaty between thnt country nnd
Cuba, and the man Is right hero, Cuba,
It Is believed, would Vn willing to give
him up.
The newspapers almost without ex
ception welcomo Castro with tho most
fulsome praise. La Opinion, the orgnn
of the Zaylstns, who are Just now
threatening to start a revolution be

Tho Httertn Government In Mexico
selected resterdny Knilllo Itnbasn, a
