THE SUN, FRIpAY; FEBRUARY 28, 1913.
IT.'., llo phrased It as a reply to Mr.!
Shonts's statement of Wednesday, say-
Ing (hut the following wore the reasons .
why tlir Manhattan Railway Company
had refused to make the application
requested by l lie Interborough eom
pany: "That the application raised the
lunation as to whether the Manhattan
company might not lie compelled to
operate tho new tracks" If the Inter
borough defaulted on Km lease.
"That no reasonable terms were pro
vided by which the Munhattan com
pany could take over the extension!
if tho Interborough lease wero ter
minated. "That the Improvements become an
Integral part of the Manhuttnn system
and cannot lie removed without Inter
ference with the public service.
"That If the InturborouKli shulud
give the Manhattan the best rnuso for
terminating the lease, the Manhattan
i ompany would be unable to do so
under the suggested contracts, because
it would not be In a position to con
tinue without Interruption tho opera
tion of Its lines, since the provisions re
specting Its protection ns to rolling stock
are wholly Inadequate."
t'ndcr the third objection Mr. Gould
rnld that tho Improvements should lie
tome (he "absolute property" of the
Manhattan company In enso of default
hy the Intciijoroush a proposal which
caused the wrath of Uotoimh President
McAncny, who I a friend of the limited
In the same connection Mr. tlould
said that In ordinary cases tho lesco Is
not permitted to remove improvements,
nor "is It common to make any pro
vision for reimbursing him the cost."
i n the other hand. If the Improvements
nre made with money provided by the
lessor an arrangement should be made
safeguarding him against loss In case of
default on the lease.
Mr. Could gave as an Instance of the
latter "that the Interborough was pro
posing to spend $3,000,000 raised on
Manhattan bonds to pay for power
houses, sub-stations and so on. The In
tcrborougli has this light under the
lease, but Mr. Could thinks that If l:ic
Interborough should default and the
tense should terminate nnd the third
tracks should be torn down that the
Manhuttnn company would have spent
$3,000,000 upon which It could not real
ize. Mr. Gould concluded his statement
with tho remark that he "hadn't known
what was going on until a short time
(mill rainll lllreelor.tr,

t ie Manhattan directorate, which Mr
Shonts says Mr. Gould's representative

The day Mr. Shonts sets as the time
when Mr. Gould's representative offered
to sell the Gould stoek at ITT. was

of the Public Service Commission. Mr
Willcox had no Idea, It is said, that
there was any hitch In the arrange

The hint was conveyed to Mr. Shonts,
when Mr. Gould's disposition to .sell his
stock was first broached to him. that
200 would be an acceptable price for
the ht.101 Gould shares. The price was

WEIRD TRIP IN FOG

Trying to Hake Desbrosses Slip,

So they kept In stream a while
And .ailed round Manhattan Iele! Rumor.
It was the double ender Pittsburg of
the Pennsylvania lino plying between
Jersey City nnd Desbrosses street, Hud
son River, that Inspired a story of an
experience in fog navigation unequalled
In ferryboat groplngs.
The flrst news of the PitwiburK after
she had sailed from the foot of Ex
change place, Jersey City, with about
700 pessengers, at 8:15 A. M. on Thurs
day, February 27, 1918, was received by
Capt, Dodson of the barge Happy Tid
ings, moored off Hunter's Point, lati
tude 40:42:10 north, longttudo 78:38
west (Capt. Dodson's own reckoning).
He reported that a largo double decker
was In tho offing and that she wan pre
paring to make n landing. Her lights
were shining brightly and she an
nounced by wireless that she was the
rittsburg. Now this could not be true,
as the Pittsburg has no wircleus.
Tho rumor from tho Happy Tidings
had It that the skipper of the Pittsburg
hailed a man at the end of a ferry
"What port is that?"
The man stopped Jerking the clapper
of u fog bell and shouted: "Hunter's
"Where In thunder's that?'' bawled
the skipper, and when he learned that It
was a part of tho Horough ot Queens
he at."- things that help to relieve the
feelings of navigators when they find
they can t naugnte. This part of the
wanderings of the Pittsburg may lo at
tributed tn part to Capt. Dodson.
Tho next heard of her was nt 10:30
A. M off Pier 7, East River, on Thurs
day, February 27, 1913. Hhe wns mnk-
Ing for the pier. The fog was not so
glutinous as It had beon. After the
skipper had been convincod hy n Ions
shoreman nt the end of the pier that
the Pittsburg was realty within sight of
land and that the land skirted tho Fast
River the deckhands beftnn getting the
gangplank ready and several hundred
stenographers and typewriters living In
Jersey, who hnd been writing the his
tory of the trip to prove to tho Imsscs
that they were really delayed by weird
navigation, put up their logbooks.
Among the 700 were other workers In
onices than typewriters and stenogra
phers, nnd they looker! a bit dubious.
Many a man has
high prices for card and filing
cabinets because he thought
his needs demanded special

standard files has shown him

Tb hlgbeit type of Filing EqalpBunt
without the Fancy Prleai
They had no logs to prove Anything.
All marched ashore oheerfnly, hew-,
ever, and then the skipper tooted tort
well to the pier and headed for thd
Battery, or whore tho Battery was eup.
posed to bo and Is in clear weathers
He was bound for Desbrosses street,
as he bad a large number of teams to
land, and they could not set off by way
of an ordinary gangplank. Tho air was
till (permeated wflth the) ptm jfcoup
varloty ot mist.
The skipper this time decided to,
navigate by pierheads alone, and ho
stuck close to them, with two men on
lookout counting heads, pierheads, alt
tho way to Desbrosses street. Not oact,
did the little Island get away from him.
At noon he put tho Pittsburg: cleverly
into her Desbroaaes street slip scratch
less and with nothing; hurt except his
own feelings. Thereafter he continued
to ply his course between Jersey City
and DesbroMca street, the thinning out,
of the fog enabling him to see enough
to guess whither he was going,
It was denied at the office of the linn
that the littsburg was out to make a
record by circumnavigating Manhattan,
reaching her New York slip by way ot
the East River and the Harlem Ship
The Pittsburg- Is on of the finest
of the Pennsylvania fleet. She ia r
double screw, that is she has a pro
peller at fach end, or each bow, it -depends
on whether she is going or com
ing, so she can be managed easily.
