The plan of the Rapid Transit OasjuvsMsM for
»n Xa c t Fide subway, as sketched yesterday for
a Tribune reporter by Alexander K. Orr, dM
president of the commission, does not acre* in
oil Its detai!* with either the plan of the Bel
nscnt Fyrdicft* or th* plan recently presented
try the Metropolitan management. In the prep
aration of the comtntesion'a r^ an . Mr. Orr Hid,
the controlling thought was r.ot how best to
, pieare cither of the traction companions, but how
best to Ffrve the Interests of the >ople of the
«"!ty In obtaining future Improvements in rapid
. White no definite route hns l>epn laid out l>y
the commission for en Cost S!i3e. line, there Is
j. general agreement that part of the route Tiill
be Lcxlngton-ave.. from the Harlem River to
F-.»r- . cor.d-st. This will be r'-gardetf as a sec
i tion of the next subway system for which the
romniisriOM will Invite bids. Another section
will proceed In Lexington-arc a considerable
distance tou.h of Forty-second-st., and continue
on to the Battery by a route similar to that
proposed by the Metropolitan management, and
paralleling the route of the present subway
couth of Forty-second-Kt. Tbe exact lire of the
S*cond eeetJon after it leaves Ijexington-ave. v ill
4le}>eiid on the resrultt of the; borings and other
investigations now being ma£e by the engineers
cf the commission.
The line returning from the Battery. Mr. Orr
•ays. will follow the general route proposed by
the Metrox>olltan munaecment less clo«=e!y. as
the commission % refers-. Broadway or Seventh
ave.. north of Fourteer.ib-st-. to Eightb-ave. In
cue respect, however, the commission's plan will
■Tree with the Metropolitan plan for the West
Side ioop. in that it will form a connection with
the Pennsylvania station and tunnel.
The commission has agreed. Mr. Orr said, to
effer the next subway system in sections, so
that the Belmont syndicate and the Metropolitan
SBawagemer.i can bid against each other. All the
eeetions will be offered at the same time, with
the understanding that the successful bidder
Snay decide which section ehall be completed
The lowest bidder for the entjre subway sys
tem may not get the contract necessarily, be
cause the commission will take into considera
tion what the bidders car offer in the way of
transfers to exlttine lines of railway and other
Inducements of benefit to the travelling public.
It will thua be Been that the Pennsylvania and
the New- York Central may become Interested in
bids for the next subway system.
Mr. Orr could not ray yesterday when the
commission could decide on a complete route for
the nest subway syetc ti. which is to Include
< the East Side subway. Action will have to be
deferred, he said, until the engineers who are
Snaking the investigations can report on the
various sections, some of them tentative, giving
full details. This preparatory work will have
to be sufficiently thorough to be the basis of
estimates for the contracts which will be of
fered to the bidders.
• Among the - York ere wbo have been in
terested in rapid transit for the East Side for a
long time is John D. OrlmuUas.
'" "I was interested long before the first com
mission was appointed by Mayor Grant." said
Mr. Crtnnntns yesterday, "and I was instru
mental in having that first commission appoint
ed. It was apparent to me from the time the
route of the present subway was fixed that there
. Had been a <" >- Mded failure to taxe care of the
Interests ot ;..•■ Harlem and Bronx sections of
t tl. city. People of those districts cannot have
rc^l rapid transit so long as the subway goes to
the far %vest in Manhattan before turning east
at the corner of Central Park- A direct East
. Side line ol express trains will be the only solu
tion of the difficulty.
"It is apparent to many people that If the
Metropolitan people should be permitted to build
their proposed East Side line and give transfers
to the rurface lines they would get most of the
travel, for the great mass of the people liv* on
the Kast Side, while The Bronx is filling up at a
rate that indicates that the transit facilities of
the : ; it Side line will be taxed to the utmost
«s soon as It is built. Interborough stock would
be worth less thin it Is now if the Metropolitan
.' had the right to build an East Side subway."
'Aldermen's Committee to Ask for
Reduced Celebration Appropriation.
Tn* committee of the Board of Aldermen having
charge cf arrangements for a celebration of the
opening of the tubway on October 27 met yesterday
to make up au estimate of expenses of a celebra
tion without fireworks, souvenirs, free luncheon
end b-jntirg. The committee will present the re
•u!t of its figuring to the Board of Estimate and
Apportionment to-day. It Is expected that the
total wfil be placed at $5,000. and that the Board
Of Estimate and Apportionment will authorize the
expenditure of that sum
The celebration probably will consist in the mala
of music and spstesMS near the City Hall elation
«f the subway and a tras excursion of officials
. and invited guests through the subway, it is ex
pected that President Orr of the Rapid Transit
Commission will make ore of the speeches, turn

company, and IhSS the Mayor and Mr. Beimoßt

Offldals of the Interborough Company were busy
yesterday paring down as much as possible the

To Restrain Railroad from a Merger
Norfolk, Va.. Oct. 4.— Judge Waddi!!, In the
United States Court to-day, issued an Injunction
restraining the Seaboard and Roanoki? Railroad
from merging with the Seaboard Air Li:.e Rail
icad. This irj Junction was asked for by Charles
Chcuncey, of Montgomery County. Peim..
who holds $11,000 worth of certificates of in
debtedness of the company, and who seeks to
prevent the acquisition of the property and
franchises of the Seaboard and Roanoke by the
Seaboard Air Line. This It is alleged, would
destroy the corporate existence of the Seaboard
and Roanoke and its power to carry out its
contracts, among which are the certificates held
by the plaintiff.
The dSM has been set for a hearing 1n this
city on Xovemr.cr 11. The plaintiff was required
to give a 90,000 bond. The papers were served
on the directors of the Seaboard and Poanoke
five minutes before their meeting.
The injunction was also «en.cd on J. M. Barr,
iresident. and Leigh R. Watte, general counsel
of the Seaboard Air Line.
Mr. Watts to-night said
Mr. Chauncey i* peeking to secure protection
for the holders of certificates of indebtedness
issued by the Seaboard and Roanoke Railroad,
and we bad already planned to give the protec
tion he desires, but I do not think he was aware
of this when he instituted the proceedings. The
matter Is giving us no concern, and I ;:m rare it
will be settled without any trouble.
The case is set for a formal hearing In open
court here on November 7.
After the injunction had been served the Sea
board and Roanoke stockholders elected the fol
lowing officers: James M. Birr, president, and
Leigh R. Watt«. Portsmouth; R. C. Hoffman.
Baltimore; J. H. Dooley. Richmond; R. L. Nutt.
Portsmouth: C E. Johnson. Raleigh. N. C, and

Declares Republican Stand on Equal
Taxation Is ihc Better.
Mayor Fagan. of Jersey City, settled all doubt
yesterday concerning his attitude In the guberna
torial contest The Mayor has been an earnest
champion of equal taxation and It sraa his strong,
<•:•.■ letter to Governor Murphy last winter that
brought about the action of the legislators, au
thorizing the appointment of a commission to In
qulro into the subject ana report at the next ses
sion of the legislature. The Mayor even had drawn
an equal taxation plank, which was submitted
to the Republican State Convention, but the con
vention adopted a modified plank. It was re
ported that the Mayor was piqued and would prob
ably support the Democratic nominee for Gov
The Mayor put an end to doubt yesterday and
made public a vigorous statement reviewing tho
action of the Democrats on the equal taxation
question, and exposing Its shallow promises. The
Mayor said:
In Umi State campaign all citizens u>s!rous ot
g0...d government must choose between the Demo
cratic party and Its candidates and the Republican
party and its candidates.
The Democrats promise us equal taxation. What
Is their party history on the subject? The Demo
cratic platform declaration In favor of equal taxa
tion pi tola year is practically Identical with the
?J2L ml 2. c .? n^?" c by the art >' and its candidates in
101. The Democratic candidate for Governor and
ton candidate! for the legislature appealed for sup
port in that campaign mainly upon the pledge that
If successful they would increase the taxt-s upon
railroad property, substantially as row promised in
the Democratic platform of this year. After they
had secured power on the faith of these promises
the pledges were enamel) broken and not even
an attempt was mad- to carry them out.
The Democratic leaders who made and broke
those promises arc, with scarcely an exception, the
same men who gathered at Trenton th ■ other clay
in full control of the, party organisation. Without
their aid the pledg* of the platform cannot be re
<ler mcd.
In the tight of this experience I feel justified In
bfiteviiiK that the pledges which they now make
•-• male for election purpose« only, and wou'd
arnin b« broken. I also cannot forget that these
men who now control the party organization are
th»- same m"n who were responsible for the raw
track. eosj combine and other scandals which de
graded the State ten years ago.
Again, thry appeal for support on the ground
that their candi'late for Governor is a man of
character and ability. Personally I have great
respect for Mr. Black, but this does not Otwcure
th» more vital fact in my mind that his election
will strengthen the pow«r of these discredited
I have a!?c considered the effect of the election
of a Democratlo Governor upon the conditions in
this city. Kcr years the Democratic machine here
hns used th»j cry of equal taxation and pretended
opposition to corporations to help Its local ticket
When I became Mayor of the -itv I found glaring
tnequalitlis in.l discriminations in the tax levy In
favor of corporations, and ■ ibm of their property
e:itir«ly omitted. We raised the valuations on the
property of the trolley, telepraph. telephone and
pas companies on in ;i\eratr>' of over 10) per cent.
The representatives of the Democratic machine In
the Tax Board and Uoarri of Finance bitterly op
posGd and voted against these Incrf-asrd assess
ments, but the same were jxii.; by the companies
without appeal to the State Efoard of Taxation,
thus proving that the former assessments made
by li - Democratic machine were gross under
I vSStn convinced that whatever remains to be
done alonjr there and other linn for the Improve
ment of r.onciUior.s in J^rrey City— and much still
remains to be done— must be accomplished against
the determined opposition of the Democratic m.v
chine. How woui'i the election of a D*"m'">-
Govetrior affect th»si» conditions? Can uny one
doubt that such a result would errmtly strengthen
the local Democratic machine, and that this power
would be used against the public Interest In tne
fo»nre as it his lven In hr »^«t?
Party conduct must '"» Judced as a. whole. I
rin\>- not always approved the course of .the Re
publican party In this State, and have criticised
the same In the past, and «hall not hesitate to
<:■• so In the future. If occasion requires. Never
theless I believe that by the election of the State
Republican ticket the State government will be ad
riir.ixt.' 1 !-;. on the whole. more efficiently, eeo
rtoniicnllv and honestly than we have any reason
to expect from the Democratic machine.
Senator E. C. Stokes Is a man of high personal
character, of wtr'f «?xpe|-i»nce in affairs of 'state,
whose career In State pol'tlcs h«.« been Identified
with all proa*re*siva measures of the Republican
administration for the last ten rears. A* Gov
ernor I bei'eve. he will set a high standard of
off) I conduct.
Personally, I would have been glad to see the
Republican platform take a more advanced stand
upon the subject of taxation of railroad property.
In matter" of detail, »nd did what I could to ac
complish that end. I shall continue to flt-ht along
this line tn the comlnar ««< ssion of the legislature,
and thereafter. If nece«ary.
The Republican platform, however, specifically
promisee « measure of relief which w>'l mean sev
eral hundred thousand dollars* additional revenue
annually from railroad property to Jer«ev City
alone, and commits the party to the principle that
all railroad property shall b°ar the same burden
of taxation as is borne by the property of other
I believe, therefore, that more Is to b«> obtain*. J
for lerwy City on th!s suh'»ct I- supporting tl;e
Repuhllean party than by «upnortlncr the Demo
cratic party, which. Indeed by it« past history, can
be counted on to repudiate utterly Its promises, .

For these reasons. I believe that I can be*t serve
the Interest* . ■■• jersey City by supporting Senator
Stokes for Governor.
