Interborough Engineer Says Semi-Bitumi
nous Coal Has To Be Used.
Testimony was given yesterday before Commis
sioner Eustls. of th« Public Service Commission. to
show that the Interborough Rapid Tnn<=it Com
pany had chanced from the use of anthracite to
semi-bituminous coal in its two large power houses.
This came out at a hearing on • a complaint
against the smoke nuisance maintained at the
power house at 59th street and the North River.
The complainant was Henry D. Hotchkiss. a law
yer, whose home is at No. 351 West "f.t'i street.
He said that the five big stacks of the Inter
borough's power house belched forth <i mass v€
smoke fit nil times and ruined the district as a
residence section.
Henry <i. Stott. superintendent of motive power
of the Interborough, said it had used anthracite
coal for two years Bfter the subway was opend,
when a change to semi-bituminous coal was made.
This was necessary, be said, because of the irreg
ularities in the tntal amount of power needed, due
to changes in load on different parts of the Hn*\
Seml-bitumlnous coal would produce additional heat
when needed more quickly than anthracite, he
"If a man commits suicide in the subway,** said
Mr Stc.tt. "a dozen or twenty trains may r-* 1
Stopped.. This means a sudden change in the load.
When these trains start up there is another change
In the load."
It cost the company $300 for each of its sixty
boilers to fit them for the change in coal. If they
should go hack to nnthracfte coal, he said, it
would mean a loss of ."V> per cent in the rush hour
capacity of the subway.

Delegation Fails to Exact Promise from
Dock Commissioner Spooner.
A delegation of fifty persons living in Stapleton.
Ftat»n Island, led by George Cromwell, Borough
President of Richmond, went- yesterday to the De
partment of Docks and Ferries and told Allen N.
flpooiMa'. the Dock Commissioner, a few things
about the failure to run a ferry to Stapkton.
The small regiment, drenched to the skin in t!ie
walk from the Staten Island ferry landing at the
Battery to Pier A. was in no pleasant humor, and
tbey bombarded the Commissioner with reasons why
he should spend about 125.000 to fix up the old boats
WVs'Nld and Middletown and give Stapleton a
ferry service of its own. With lames Feeney as
spokesman, they had the whole scheme figured out
to a penny.
The Commissioner said he had no funds, pleaded
that the St. Georgo service was run at a loss and
argued that he would not trust his own life on
either of the old boats. The men from Stnpleton

I Workers at Flower Mission Deplore
Falling Off in Contributions.
"We want everything we can get." ?ald on« of
the officer of the New York City Flower Mission
at its rooms, at No 104 East 20th street, yesterday.
"Tea, Jellies, condensed milk, fruit, vegetables, as
well as flowers. Nothing comes nmiss."
For some reason food delicacies and fruit are
being received in m^aicre supply. Mnny flowers are
sent in. but the mission line no trouble in disposing
j of them and could dispose of more If It had them.
Last Thursday the rooms were a bower. A hun
dred magnificent . roses came from J. Pierpont
Morgan's place and were sent to Gouvemcur Hos
pital. Four hundred roses were sent to Lincoln
Hospital in The Bronx. A hundred potted plants
came from a Sunday school in Orange. N. J.. and
were distributed among kindergartens nnd day
nurseries' and tenement shut-ins. Yesterday, also,
quantities of peonies, roses,' pansles and other
blossoms were received and were promptly carried
away by missionaries to the places where they
would do the most good.
"We need helpers to assist in unpacking the
flowers and arranging them for the missionaries."
said one of the workers. "Put. dear me, aren't
things contrary in this world? Not long ago we
published an appeal for helpers and the next day
six volunteers came in. But, of course, it just hap
pened that en that day there were hardly any flow
ers. We tried to assure, the ladies that generally we
nad many flowers nnd would be very glad of their
Wlp: but I'm afraid they didn't really believe it.
and only one of them ever came back.
"Missionaries say that th« sick in tenements he?
for Jellies so. Condensed milk is on* thing of
which we 11=0-1 to get a great deal, but for some
reason it isn't coming in now, and we miss it.
In some ways there is almost more suffering now
than there was last winter. Out of work people
who lived for a good whil« after the hard times
began on what they had saved up. or with the help
of relatives, are coming to the end of their re
sources now."
"I hope we'll get is many vegetables and fruits
this year as we did last." said another worker.
"Some of the wealthy people would have the
crates and ship us vegetables regularly, the crates
h«>ing carried back the next day by the express
com pan if?.
"I used to wonder why gifts at fruits and vege
table? from the same people would vary so year
by year. One year wed get splendid things from
some estate up the Hudson, cay, and the nest
{rear from that samo estate only skimpy offerings
or nothing at all. I concluded it was the garden
era. Probably the owners were away in Europe
and left orders with the gardeners to send us
things. If the gardener was generous we reaped
the benefit. If lie had an eye to the main chance
he probably sold the vegetables and kept the
money. Maybe that was one of his perquisite?."
In recent years the mission has purchased deli
cacies for the sick, but at present the treasury is
not very full, because many contributors have been
compelled to halve their checks or refrain from
Bending them at all. Still, the mission is going
on as it has gone since :t was founded, more than
thirty years ago.
The missionaries are chosen with great care,
and most of the people helped are found through
Settlements and schools:, so tho f e v.ho contribute
may be sure that their gifts are not wasted on
the wrong people. The mission rooms at No. 104
Kast 2"th street are open every Monday and
Thursday. Mies Frances Rufelt is the treasurer.
