May Some Day Be Connected W itu ast Underground City. Causes That Led to This Delving Beneath the Surface. New York, June 16. The great tunnel that is to bring- rapid transit joys to the hearts of N'ew Yorkers is the first extensive step in the direction of mak ing use of the region beneath the sur face to supply deficiencies that the crowded condition of the level ground has made it impossible to fill except by unusual means. Xew Yorkers are very enthusiastic about their, tunnel, as they have a right to be. for it will be the greatest underground passage in the we -id. Laborers are flocking from the ends of the earth to help construct the tunnel, Contracts and subcontracts and su o-subeoiurat ts. are bt::',j; given out, models of the new road, ia numer ous - 1 ' re windows, are always sur-rutiro!-d by curious thrones, the ilius-tiat.- 1 r .-s is presenting i ictuies from iVery imaginable lev. pull. t of the tun n 1 as it wii! appear when 4'inished, and the air is iiiied with tunnel talK and co-i jratulati- r.s that this great pro ject is to ;e cairieu out in America, the country oi s'.uper.d'ius undertak ings. And jet in London, as the Londoners are mituiy leminding us, there is being constructed a variety of tunr.-Is. so vast and complicated, sl immeasurably superior in extent and engineering peculiarities to that which America is to possess that to begin to describe them is a task that can only be ap- T'.iiiiloi a iter careful study of the subject with the aid of maps a.d dia giams. The accompanying illustra tion give som faint ilea el th- vast sysp rn of tunnels :u London. The Brit ish m-ctropciis is. -so honeycombed utio ;h.-P.f underground roads that at some joints it is necessary to go down nearly a hund.ed fe-t to find the real soiid earth. Tur.iu-is cross tunnels, one-under .he mhi-r. in layers. It makes cr.e :nuddt-r to think of the c"ns quenc-es of a sudd-n cave-in where these under groun l T-asse fi s i un one b-eneath tiie oth- r. An earthquake in L- ! would irie.(:i the t'ur mg out ot s;s:nt i a-ever cf hundreds of passengers traveling by p,ui-s d-ep in the earth, to their homes or plates of business in the overgrown t. i l Y I-. r years the w ork that is shown in the accompanying picture has cc ?n go- ing on in London. At one of the busi j est sections of the city the explorer of i in- urc!'-r:rou:id system first strikes a su'ovay taint t enable the toot passen gers to cross in safety a spot where many great thoroughfares meet and w here it is almost impossible to steer a pathway duria-j the busy part of the day. In this, passage the pedestrian is separated from the roadway overhead by but two feet of com rete and steel plates so that the roar of the road traf fic is' still heard and the thud of horsi .-' h iofs is a reminder that he is stiil near the surface of the earth. Beneath this subway runs another to which access is n it open to the general public. This second subway is for the gas and water p pes. as well as for tne innumerable wires of the electric system. Beneath this subway again is to be fcund the tunnel cf the Central London railway, the ity terminus of which is some TO feet beneath the surface. To !,'" 0L--r .' Ml."' e'; rfcis station the passengers wiil descend by means of eievatois. Down in this nr.d.-j erour.d station the noise of busy London win sun be nearu in a suouueu manner, anere wi:i oe just wmusu 01 the hum and roar of the great city to ! the retirement of the underground latien 11 the more sootftmsr to tne pervt s of those who do not love the din o::' traffic that some call harmony. The pisset ger who passes down this eleva tor shaft to the underground station will pass unconsciously a network of undeigiound pipes and sewers all hav- ing their share in the great system, i while the Londoners go about their bus- j i liifs. overhead and the swarms of hu J ! manity below rhe surface are whisked t. tneir various uesii.aatio:: Jn some paits of London there is stid Mil . s i r jr. hsj ; .r"' l j, rmon jl Si uU J u,i J U U f( , P"'i . S W 1 1 1 another tunnel that dives beneath thf second one, while on each side of the: road cellars and sub-cellars are dua out to an extraordinary depth in the efforts of the people tor secure elbow-room on land that Is worth" a small fortune a square foot. It m supeested by a frenius with a pleasant imagination that it will be possible some day to connect these sub-eeiiars with the underground roads, and have the whole electrically lighted, so that the underground life of London will be as pleasant as that above. The EURcestion is that the householder or business mar. whose residence or store adjoins one of the numerous tunnels uiil able to step out of his sub-cellar on to a promenade where he may meet his neighbors for social converse or recrea tion, catch a train without going to the surface or repairing to cne of the sta tions, or walk by the underground route to any section of the city that is con nected by means of the railroad. The 'A 4rJm S tf I e "t X A f r -rr idea is a far-fetched one, perhaps, but so rapidly is London becoming an un derground city that is is not improba ble that th future may see haif the population living, moving and having its being- far beneath the surface, like a colony of ants or cave-dwellers. Three great causes have brought these underground roads into existence the piessing need for more rapid tran sit, the invention of the Oreathead shield, and the improvement in electri cal locomotion. The very congestion of activity on the streets, which makes raiiivaj- communication so desirable, renders their construction by any ordi nals" means almost impossible, owing to the ioss anil inconvenience entailed. The solution at present being carried out makes no interference with London's existing traffic. Tunnelling through London clay has been rendered a com paratively easy matter by the late hit. C-reathead"s invention. In the case of j one a circular steel shield, 7 feet in ; length, was employed. Steei chisel-, j shaped teeth form a continuous cuttinj. edge in the roremost end ot the shield. ! which is forced forward about 10 inches I into the ciay by hydraulic rams. The ! clay is cleared away, and before the j shield is again advanced a section of I the castiron tunnel is buiit up inside the i rear portion of the shield. It is from the ! flanged edge of this new section that I the rams force the shield forward again As the ehieid is thus slightly larger than the tunnelling a space is left all round the tube. This is subsequently fHied up with cement, which is forced into position through holes in the plates. Th electric locomotive now employed j picks up the current w hich actuates ita T - t 1 91 motors from a th!r3 rail running in the cenjer of rhe track. The shield wRl probably be used in the building of America's bier tunnel, al though the rocky nature of New York's foundation will make drilling more nec essary than diereing. When this big underground passage is finished we shall possess the greatest tunnel in the world but not the most complex system of tunnelling-. London leads in that re spect as the illustration shews. IIASNA'S CHOICE. Thinks the Man "Who Eullt the Ore- ' gon" Would Be AU Right Indianapolis, June 16. A special to the News from Washington says: "I don't care who else gets the nomi nation for vice president, but I am against Timothy E. Woodruff and Gov- 1 -i-vr-- r?f r -4 y 1 ! 0 i t It 1 v 1 ! ernor Roosevelt." said Senator Hanna, with ali the empnasls of which the em phatic Ohio boss is cap-abie. "I am against these two men. I am against Woodruff because., hit is incompetent, and. against Roosevelt because he says he didn't want it. I don't think any man sht iild be nominated if he says he don't want it.' Any other man will suit me. but I am against those two. isay so? Certainly you can." "But. Senator," ask-d the correspond ent, "whom do you favor?"' "I have no choice: no particular choice. I do not believe anybody will know who is to 1h? nominated until at least one ballot has been taken." "Then you look to see the convention stampeded for anybody?" "Xo, I don't expect that." Senator Wolcott's name was men tioned and the senator drummed thoughtfully with his fingers. "He is a irooJ fellow and will make a fine speech." Then added: "But what would you think of the man who built the Oreg-vn? Wouldn't that sound pretty well?" "You mean Irving C. Scott, president of Union Iron works, of San Francisco, and drop Senator Allison?" "Oh, well. I don't know that Allison is a candidate. He is a superb man, and if the convention wants him and he desires it. nothing better could be dne. As I said I am willing that any body should have it except those two. Senator Spooner says he does not want it. And Mr. Hitt: he is another good man. There are plenty of good men. Let .the -convention decide. I don't ex pect to know and do not expect any body will know until the balloting be gins. But the man who built the Ore gon? Isn't that a slogan which would stir the country?" The senator asked the question with much enthusiasm. and if appearances go for anything Scott is this day Hanna's candidate for the vice presidency. DUN'S WEEKLY REVIEW. General Average of Prices Slowly He turning to Normal LeveL Xew Y'ork, June IS. R. G. Dun & Ca'a Weekly Review- of Trade says: A season of declining prices is not wholly agieeable to business men whose stocks are lo-sirg their value. Yet there are times when return to the highest pros perity in business is not possible except through readjustment of prices. The highest prosperity the country had ever reached, prior to the panic, was in 1S92. with prices averaging not quite 75 per cent of their average in ISoC'. After great depression for several years, the highest point reached with last year's recovery was 80 per cent in March 16, but the gradual yielding has already returned the aencral average of prices to a shatle less than 75 per cent, prac tically where it was during the greatest prosperity in l'-.:2. The output of iron furnaces June 1 was 26.:ii6 tons weekly", an increase of 2.f.2 tons, making the yield only 1,63 tons less than at the highest point ever reached. February 1. But the increase of unsold stocks to 3XS!.4!0 tons about 94. f;t tons in May. discloses a larger decline than was expected in the new business upon which nearly ail the works and furnaces have now to rely, and reports that furnaces of consider able capacity have already been closed this month seem likely to be correct. Within a week or two the labor orga nizations and theemployers will be dis cussing new demands for higher wages and shorter hours, and the closing of many works for lack of order will have much irt'u -nee about that time. Prices are gradu. Uy changing, anthracite Xo. 1 to $2U and Pittsburg grey forge to 17.50, and sales of bars are reported tfeere at S1.50. After the closing of fur naces and works has more nearly ad justed present supply to the demand, the fact that many large operations are held back until prices have been read justed, will have its proper influence. The boot and shoe branch has been, hindered more than any other manufac ture this year perhaps by difference as to prices. Hides at Chicago and to some extent in eastern markets, have yielded for months past, giving to dealers in boots and shoes a belief that the high prices demanded early this year would j not be held. The leather companies, - Vv ok :.-:- . . " ji. r .i V however, have at times made large con cessions, but in general have resisted a decline, with the reasoning that the real difficulty is in the scantiness of buying demand, and it is urged that wholesale and retail dealers have on hand too large stocks taken when the great ad vance was in progress. Reconstruction gives slowly in cotton poods, though a few quotations are slightly reduced, the uncertain shifting in the market fur raw cotton having some innuence, and the halting of ex ports to China on account of the inter- strife there. "As Luropean manutac- lurc' ls "keiy to he aftected m the same who look for lower prices in the goods market. No further change appears this week in the wool markets, although their stagnation, with irregular prices for goods beyond the most favored sta ples, still indicates a downward tenden- ' ' isilk and hemp have also gone low er, and tne recent fall in rubber helps new business. Wheat has been advanced nearly three cents, with accounts of injury to growing grain, and the exports from At lantic ports. Hour included, have been in two weeks of June. 5.!CS7.l!7 busheis, against 3,5-6.801 bushels last year. Pacific exports 1.515.2SS bushels, against 1,055.512 last year, and corn ex ports 6.00O.462 against 5.S12.959 last year. The active movement frcra the farmers seems to discredit many accounts of in jury, although receipts have been some what smaller than last year.. Failures for the first week of June were, in amount $11S.S18. of which $1,092,870 I were in manufacturing and $.333,236 in trading concerns. Failures for the week have been 162 in the United States against l:i6 last year, and 21 in Canada, against ISO last ysar. SEWS OF THE WEEK. A Brief Review of Important Local and General Happenings.
