Bishop Potter Urge* Better Protec
£ tion in Mills and on Railroads.
Bishop Potter presided last night at a ""ting
In Cooper r-nlon held under the auspices of th«
American Museum of ****, " Deuces and th-
People's Institute to encourage the use ofjffgg
devices on transportation lines and in **«««*J
establishments. He saM thai the movement to
increase the application of safety devices to «*«
the changing Industrial conditions was MS •« tM
great philanthropic efforts of modern times. He
said. that the who!, relation of human society had
been revolutionize^!.! the last hundred years M
regards the individual. The man M an individual
ha* been gradually eliminated as machinery and
large Industrial enterprises have increased. He
characterized the indifference shown by the gov
ernment In the welfare and protection of Us in
dustrial workers as a stain upon the Republic.
Dr. JonllUl Strong. president of the American In
stitute of Social Science, said: -Our peaceful voca
tions cost more lives every two says than all that
we lost In battle daring our war with Spain.
"The nation,!' government is doing nothing; tbe
state, government Is doing nothing: wealthy New-
York is doing nothing. All that Is being: done is
by a little handful of men who for the last four
years have been trying to bring the matter to the
attention Of the public and to induce employers to
install safety devices to protect their employes
from danger."
A letter was* read from Governor Hughes, in
which he congratulated the promoters of the move
ment upon the progress already made, and ex
pressed the hope that, a museum would be. estab- p
lished that would be national in scope and un
rivalled in the world. Dr. William H. Tolman.
director of the Museum of Safety Devices; Alfred
J. Boulton, the Rev. Percy B. Grant and Carroll
D. Wright, former United States Commissioner of j
Labor, 'also spoke. ~ r j
Effect of Iron Dust on Subway
Users Uncertain.
••Ventilation" was the subject discussed at the
meeting of the Section of Public Health, held last
night at the Academy of Medicine, in West Od
street. Dr. George A. Super said that where there
is a deficiency of oxygen in the atmosphere the
people breathe more rapidly and get all the oxygen
they require. "This increase in breathing is no
more hurtful to them." he sajd. ••than if it was
caused by light exercise. The question of the
effects of air from sewers once attracted a large
amount of attention, but It does so no longer. It
is now generally admitted that the air from the
sewers Is free from bacteria, and does not possess
any toxic properties. Men who work in the city's
sowers and breathe in foul smelling odors day after
day are all healthy and strong men, whose condi
tion contrasts greatly with the employes of dust
infected sweatshops. What will be the effect of the
iron dust upon the health of patrons of the sub
ways time alone, will tell. Ventilation Is a serious
. matter, and the best way to solve the problem Is
by preventing overcrowding."
Telling of "The Principles of Ventilation," Pro
fessor William Hallock. of Columbia University,
said that he found by sleeping on the edse of the
bed with his bead hanging over the side he was
able to "get rid of the sensation of suffocation on
humid midsummer nights.

of Greek prelates, while the Pope was surrounded
by the members of the. Sacred College, the Papal
Court and other high dignitaries of the Church.
it was originally intended to hold the ceremony
at St. Peter's, but this Idea was abandoned because
of the danger of the great crowd which was sure
to assemble there, usually numbering on such occa

Lisbon strengthened th* decision, '!'•■ Vatican con

New Eleventh Avenue Track Propo
sition Comes Up at P. S. C. Meeting.
If a stipulation can be agreed upon between the
New York Central Railroad and the city, that the
spurs which the former has put down from time to
time from its tracks in Eleventh avenue, will not be
taken account of in fixing any damages for the road
in condemnation proceedings, they will be per
mitted to remain until the title of the franchise to
be condemned passes to th« city.
This was the idea of Corporation Counsel Per.dle
ton. to* which the Public Service Commission agreed
at its regular meeting yesterday. Under the terms
of' the Saxe law for the condemnation of the
Eleventh avenue franchise the commission asked
the city to revoke the spur permits. Corporation
Counsel Pendleton took the stand that to take up
these spurs at this time would work an unneces
sary hardship to business houses to which they
run, and he expressed the opinion that a satis
factory stipulation as stated could be entered into
with the railroad company.

counsel to the commission in the proceedings to

96th street are completed the number of local
trains an hour can be Increased from thirty-six
to fifty-one. Rut it would be Impossible to make
