You can say for John D Herllhy
Bald the Captain at his home No 233
West Ono Hundred and Fifth street
today that It Is a damnable on t raff
ou8 lie John D Hcrllhy has been In
trouble for twentyeight months and he
has kept his mouth shut This Is the
first time he has talked to a reporter
I want the public to know that I
I have not been treated right In this
Hero oome all the papers In the city
with the exception of The Evening

That Is what It amounts to because to
accuse me of being a squealer Is to

Tho Broiling World reporter suggested
that the visit of Capt Herllhy to As

If there Is any talking to be done about

Immediately the flies In the foundry

turned out hot from the rolls Herlihy
has squealed
Commltsloner Oreene refuses to die

Mr Jerome
In his arndav Bucklln Bays that ow
ing to the popular passion and preju
dice against him he would not will
ingly submit to trial In this county
That hi could not because the wide
publicity given to the case secure a

an Evening World reporter at the Tre

he had anything to say about the latest
rumors concerning him
All I have to say is that the stories

What were you doing at Headquar

I was thero on police business purely
and simply responded the Inspector
I notice that some of the pipers say

CITY LOSES
400OOO SUIT
Appellate Division of Supreme
Court Hands Down Decision
Granting Writ to Subway
Contractor for Extra Sum
CASE TO BE APPEALED
The Appellate Dlvltlon of the Buprem
Court by a dividing vote rendered an
opinion toilay against the city and In
favor of John B McDonald who cud
for JiCOCOO for extra work on the sub
way contract When Comptnlltr Qrout
heard of the decision he said the case
would be carried to the Court of Ap
peals
There are three opinions rendered In
the decision but tho majority reverse
Justice OGorman In hit decision deny
ing a writ of mandamus to McDonald
compelling Comptroller Grout to sign a
warrant for the 100000 asked for by the
subway contractor
This money Is for extra work which
McDonald says was not In the original
contract and which the Comptroller de
clares was a part of the equipment and
for that reason tho coat should ba
borne by the contractor
The fact that there are three opin
ions rendered said Mr Grout leaves
the way open to us to carry tho case
to the Court of Appeals rather than
have the city pay out MOOOOO for what
I consider Is not a legitimate claim
We have each won a victory and now
the Court of Appeals will be the um
pire to decldo the case finally The
city will contest this claim no long
as Its case his a leg to stand on
Justice Hatch writes the majority
opinion of the Court He describes the
provllom of the contract between Mc
Donald and the city which was entered
Into three years ago today
The contract contained ro provision for
tho construction of any ducts Ways or
conduits for electric wires Subsequently
the plans were changed no us to provide
for such duct and this required that
the excavation be made eight Inch
wider The original contract however
piovlded that the cost of the equipment
of the road must bo borne by tho con
tractor the city only paying for con
elructlun Payment for this extra work
was resisted
Presiding Justice Van Brunt and Jus
tice McLaughlin concurred with Justice
Hatch Justlca Ingraham and Justice
McLaughlin also concurred In granting
tho application but they both wrote
separate opinions

The scene In the house of death strangely affected the Jurors and they
left as soon as they could The mother of the dead girl was heard nobbing
and crying In the room adjoining that In which her childs remains were
coffined Her grief Is uncontrollable and It was with solemn faces that the
investlsators turned away from the brokenhearted family
VISIT THE DEADLY CROSSING
Coroner Hellman then took the six Jurors to the scene of tho accident
The gates through which the trolley car took its passengers destruction
were examined and the ones that have been put In their place were worked
by the crossing flagman Distances were taken and everything necessary to
give the Inquisitors a clear idea of the topography of the locality was pointed
out to them
The Jury found mechanics laying a derailing switch such as Tho Eves
ing World ban advocated which had It been in place on Thursday last
would have prevented the disaster This action was approved of by the
Jury and It drew comment on the material of which the railroad gtea are l
made One of tho Jurors said that he could not understand why steel of r
sufficient strength was not used In their construction xi + r
The tracks on the Clifton street grade wero swept and well sanded to
day but a search failed to discover the candbox which the trolley road
people say Is kept at that point Au empty coal scuttle which had evidently
been used for thn purpose of holding eand was lying In the gutter
It was the Coroners intention to take the Jurors to the North Jersey
car barns and have them inspect the wrecked car but he learned that the
company had removed the car at daybreak to its repair shops on the other
sldo of the town Orders to hurry the car to the repair shops and hare It
taken apart were Issued when it was learned that Coroner Hellman WM

County Prosecutor Riker said today he had completed hie ptasa W
presenting to the Grand Jury on Tuesday morning all facts In relation to
the wreck Ho has subpoenaed the operating officials of the railroad aaC
trolley companies and a number of eyewitnesses of de disaster
A point that will be gone into thoroughly before the Grand Jury will
bo the failure of the trolley company to have a derailing switch placed at t
the fatal crossing Before the Newark Doard of Public Works yesterday
General Manager Young of the North Jersey Traction Company declared
that he had entered into an agreement with the Delaware Lackawanna and
Western through Its division superintendent Andrew Reasoner to foetal
a derailing switch with an automatic danger signal at the Clifton ToM
crossing but that when Mr Reasoner resigned and President Trawdate
F
succeeded President Sloan the new official repudiated the agreement
This statement was vigorously denied by former Chief Engineer Mac lr
Farlln of the Delaware Lackawanna and Western who has only recently
resigned Mr Young claimed to have documentary proof of the agreement
He will be asked to place it before the Grand Jury and this important phew t
of the situation will be thoroughly threshed out
Prosecutor RIker was angry today over obstacles placed In his way fcjr
the trolley company in his attempt to secure service of a subpoena oa Ike
Italian crossing watchman whose duty it was to see that the trolley tracks
were kept clear of snow and properly sanded This man disappeared after
