Ho said it would require $2,800,000 to buy" ISO more cars tor the. subway. Askid about tho stock market prices to-day of Interborough securi ties Mr. Hedley said: "I haven't botheieil my head about that." He ileclured I hut the Interborough was disabled fiom giving any additional service through lack of cars. In ad dition to mote cars, the company nerds storage yards. Tlie lack of storage yards he suld was one of the reasons why the com pany cannot take caro of any more cars. At present the storage space for cars is principally the centre tracks of the elevated subways In the suburban districts. BLAMES IT ON CITY'S FAILURE TO ACT. Tlie lack of these essential facilities s primarily due to the refusal of the city to recognize Its obligations 'under he contract und built the storage yards required, Mr. Henley declared n answer to questions by Clarence J. Kites rn. Counsel to the Commission Mr. Heuley ndmltted that during he war the Interborough Company agreed with lite Transit Construction oiniiiisslon that the construction of the storage ynrds be deferred. Judge Shoarn offered In evidence a etter from tlie then President Shonts luted Feb. 14. 1918, In which the rail road Vresident asked the Public Ser vice Commissioner to defer construct ing several storage yards for tho rea son that $6,000,000 would be required and for a further reason to protect the company's expenditure while ma terials costs were high. In face of this letter Mr. Hedley persisted in denying that tlie delay was due to the tactics of the Inter borough Company. Mr. She.'irn took Mr. Hedley to task for "trying to shift the blame to the city," whoso record, he. said, "h surely bad enough In this matter." Mr. Hedley said the Government would not Allow storage yard con structlon during tho war. llr. Shearn reminded Mr. Hedley that at tho time tho Interborough was trying to save tho expenditure of JG, 000,000 for stor age yards It was paying out ' more than that in inflated dividends, ex ceeding the earnings by $7,000,000 CORPORATION O'BRIEN SIDE TRACKED. After many nttcmpts to provoke a direct answer Judge Shearn finally got Mr. Hedley to admit that even If the city hud built the storage yards, tho Intrrltorough Company would not havo the cars to put Into those yards Corporation Counsel O'Hrlcn attempt ed to ask a question, but when ward ed oft by Judgu Shearn Mr. O'Brien said: I have just one little question I want to ask Mr. lUdley." To which Mr. Hedley replied: "Air. O'Hrien and I will havo our session later on If allowed to go along on tho same basis us tho last few months the Interliorough Company will "live It through without a receivership," -Mr. Hexlley said. He then continued: "If the public authorities decide to destroy us wc will to destroyed. On tho other hand. If the public authori ties dccldo to help us. we'll live It through. it won't take tho public authorities long to destiny us If they decide to do it. We wnnt your help your assistance.

Judge Shearn rejoined: "Well we're going to save you In splto of yourself, but we don't think it appro priate of you in view of the effoit-s ol this conimlstloii got letter ser vice to ehiuuctei ize this inquiry ns an attempt at your di-structlon " GOVERNOR SIGNS BILL CARRYING TUNNEL FUNDS ln,r()l,0OO Aplirnprllitril for Coll- utrneltan of Jrrary Tulip.

Mr. Pecora objected ut this point to any tribute to the personality of Mr. Ulckard, which was not susceptible of pi oof. Steuer intimated he would prove them by Mr. Itlckurd himself. Mr. Steuer at once began an ex planation of visits of Mr. Itlckanl to the apartments of Walter Fields at Nos. 20 and 4 West 47tlt Street. He said that while Mr. Uickard was in Toledo -promoting the Dempsey Wlllard fight, anticipating Prohibi tion, Instructed Mr. Field to buy and store a large quantity of liquni. Mr. Steiier said he would prove that Mr. Fields "bought this liquor and stored It In a vault specially built in the basement of No. II West 17th Street. Most of the liquor was removed to Mr. Hlckard's home at No. SO Madi son Avenue, when he cume to New York. Mr. rtlrkard occasionally vis ited the plare wheie the remainder was stored. When it was moved to Mr. Field's new apartment at No 20 West 47tlt Street last October, Mr Klckard did visit that apartment in tho early afternoon. These were the visits, of Mr. Hirknrd to the apart ments described by the prosecution's witnesses und tlie only reason for them, Mr. Steuer said. Mr. Steuer described the i editions of Mr. lttckard with the Kchoenfeld fam ily. Mr. Kicknrd, said the lawyer, kept no diary: he could fix dates only by being reminded . of something going on nt Madison Square Garden and connecting It with other events of the day. He fixes tho day when Sarah Schoenfeld, who had appealed to him as ono of many children hang ing around the Garden, brought her mother to him seeking uld for a brother In Milwaukee, who had been arrested and was in nn insane hos pltol there. Mr. Steuer told of different things Mr. nlokard did. such as writing to -i friend In Mllwaukco and framing letters to the Governor of Wisconsin.

(NON-KCTARUN) Broadway at 66th St PPRECIATION has been general of THE WORLD'S efforts to protect the modest investor from the ramps that have been set up in the financial dis trict of this city, and the following letter from William A. Romkey, Editor of the "Daily Bond News," is typical of countless ex pressions of the same kind that have reached this office: "I read with much interest your edi torial comment on the recent financial failures having been precipitated by the exposures in THE WORLD, accord ing; to the 'Wall Street Journal.' "We know of no more public-spirited work being done by a newspaper than your efforts to protect the small in vestor from falling into the clutches of these so-called 'stock brokers.' "The legitimate investment firms appear to ignore, or fail to appreciate, the harm being done to their business by them. "Among your readers there must be thousands who have fallen victims to these speculators, and an occasional editorial on this subject will help to prevent others meeting with the same misfortune." It is this realization of its stewardship to its readers that has won for THE WORLD the designation of "First in Public Service" from three great universities by vote of their departments of journalism.
