TRAVEL THE SUBWAY.
New Yorkers Flock to the Big
NEW YORK, Oct. 2S. None of the

night an appreciable diminution in
trafTic as a result of the competition
with the subway, which opened ror

second street and Broadway.

the Parle place station of the Sixth
avenue line v.'au not 50 large and there
were few strap hangers in the trains
bound up town. Hundreds of Brooklyn
theater-goers who traveled up town on
the "Ij" look the subwayroute home.
As the curtains were lc7w,-red for tliL
last time in lh various theaters along
Broadway, crowds turned as if with
one impulse toward the neatest sub
way station. The one topic of conver
sation seemed to be "subway." Cab
men all along tho street sLood by their
vehicles looking longingly at many of
those who on former occasions were
good fares, but who now cared only to
bo whirled about on the new road.
There was a decided falling off alpo.in
the restaurants among after-theater diners.
