JILVAL TRACTION LINE
TinBOROUGH IS FIELD.
Ji'ants Manhattan Bridge Franchise
as Beginning.
What W.fi* fair t" develop into a rival :ractio:i
■ - to those already in operation here has com'.
xn llsht In Ui« incorporation of the Trlboroußh liiil
road Company. Tchlch win apply next wefk to the
PuWle Sfrvic^ Commission and to th*> Board of Es
•-•>-■ an<l Apportionment for a franchise to build
and operate a. surface electric railroad over the now
Manhattan Bridge. It is the company's intention
to charge m three-cent fare, from Canal and "Walker
Streets, the Manhattan terminus of the proposed
line to Pulton street arid the Flatbush extension,
where The- Brooklyn terminus •will be.
Back of the project are the same Interests that
arf reprr-sexilrd In the Kradley-Gaffney-Steers Com
pany, which applied recently to the Public Service
OoaatntMfon. Cor permission to build a Lratagton
avrnuo subway from The Bronx to the Brooklyn
Bridge. Those Interested include William Bradley.
< i-AMman James E. Oaffney. Henry Steers and
Joseph ft. Carroll. All are Tammany Hall men and
closely affiliated with the New York Contracting
Company, the Murphy concern.
It 1« the intention of the Triborough Railroad
Company to exchange transfers ■with the Lexington
avenue subway line In case it is built by the Brad
ley-<saffney-Steers Company. The surface road
company also plans To branch out in Brooklyn.
Owing: to the tinmen's apreement" which cx
i"' betwwn the Interborough-Metropolitan and th»
Brooklyn Rapid Transit, by which neither company
invades the. ether's territory, the backers of th»
Triborousrh «>vld?ntly think they M a chance Id
•lip Into the local traction jrame. It Is «is«. under
stood that the Brar!ley-<";arrn«>v-s=te«»rs interoftts uill
bid for. the construction of the Fourth avenue Kb
vaj-.
Arthur J. Baldwin, counsel for the Mboroogti
♦"ornpany. who is also attorney for the Bradley-
Gaffney-Steers Company, said last nlpht:
"The, BSBrßsae In incorporating the Triboroagi]
Railroad <>trpany is primarily to establish a BOX
face railroad «Udi will not only furnish trans
portation over the new Manhattan Bridpe. but will
also operate in both boroutchs. At present there Is
ri surface or elevated rai!road company operating
rars both in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
"Ultimately we expect to build 'extensions from
the Fulton street terminal in Brooklyn, which -will
run to various section* of the borough, the id<?a
hfinß to provide for Brooklynites a transportation
system entirely independent of th» Brooklyn Rapid
Transit Company. likewise, if the Bradley-Gaff
ney-St^Ts <"oinrany wiroeeds la obtaining » fran
chise f.-.r tbe Broadway-I-exintrton avenue route, In
Manhattan, transfers will be exchanged between
the subway and surface railroad systems.
"Under the conditions I assume that the applica
tion of the Triboro-jsh Itnilroad Company for a
fran<-his«» will be stubbornly opposed before tha
Hoard <-f Kstiinaf and Apportionment. I believe.
however, that when our purpose is fully under
6*oool force of public sentiment will compel tti«
craminc of the franchise just as It did in the case
of the McAdoo extension. Application for a fran
chise will l>e rrade at the rneetinsr of the Board of
Ks?iroat«> and Apportionment next Friday."
SPLIT ON FRANCHISE REQUEST

*t the htginning: <•? the session of th<- B<»ard of
Estimate and Apportionment yesterday. The com
pany put In an application for a franchise to oper
ate a street surface railway In 145 th street.
"MM a matter of fact." said President MofViwan.
•"tliese t»-ar"ks are n«iw neinjj used in defiane* of
law. according to the Corporation Counsel's opin
ion."
"We dispute that fact," exclaimed Mr. Cowman.
"Of course you do, of course you do." retorted
President Mcifowaii. "but you failed to conform to
Kcal requirements."
"The franchipe was from the old Municipal Coun
cil. "* replied Mr. (oilman.
"And you failed to live up to Us terms," said
President McGowan.
"I believe the objection -was that the road was
rot built to Fort George." explained the lawyer.
"Then why do you come to us at all? You have
operated since the Corporation Counsel decided you
were doing so Irregularly. "Why not keep It up and
fight it BOM in court, following the favorite practice
of the corporations, building a desired road and
*>porating it anyway?" The application was finally
referred for -deration to a committee consist-
Ing of the •-<->;;.»!-. the president of the Board

Thornton Jenkins Mains succeeded hie father.
General Peter < Hams, yesterday as a witness In
the trial of i"aptain Peter . • Hams, jr.. for the
murder of William E. Ann!s. In the Supreme .'our-.
ng. a; the outset of his cross-examination
he waa asked a question ! !ia; brought his brother's
lawyer to his feet with a vehement protest and •■
demand that a mistrial he de.-iared by the Couri
It was late in the after*. ■• ... .- . Thornton Ha::i^
was tiivned over to District Attorney r>e Witt for
cross examlnatii n. The prosecutor's first nuestion
v. a s :
"Mr. Hams, did you shoot and kill a man nam"d
Hannisran In 19MT'
The witness leaned forward In hi* chair, the
arms of whicli his hands gripped convulsively, and
he had evident diffi.;iHj in permitting Mr. Mclntyre
to do the talking. The lawyer was re.idy. however.
He leaped to hi< feet with a loud objection

but your honor to dire.- the far. to disregard
the question "
Yes." said the Court
, "And I further ask your honor." «aid Mr. Mcln
tyre. "to withdraw one of the jurors from the
box."
"Oh. no. I will not do that. I will not go further
than to direct the Jury to disregard the question
said Justice Garret
The defendant manifested little Interest In the
■■ lings during the entire session Tie sp»nt
most of the day twirling a lock of his hair, speak
ing to no one. When th a Court ordered the cus
tomary night adjournment he sat still in his seat
until a deputy touched him on »he shoulder and
said. "Come, captain." He did not notice his rela
tives as he passed out. The courtroom for the first
time since the trial began was crowded with spec
tators, many of them being women.
District Attorney D« Witt disclosed In part what
he Intends to do in rebuttal during his cross-ex
amination of Thornton Mains, when his questions
Indicated that he Intended to call a number of
government employes to testify to statements in
Thorton Maine's testimony.
GENERAL HATNS CROSS-EXAMINED.
Creneral Mains, whose cross and redirect examina
tion occupied the morning, laid stress on his belief
that hfs son Peter was irrational between May 31,
when, his wife's alleged confession was made, and
August 15, when William E. Annia was shot. Th»
l>istrl(M Attorney did not spare him on a" nni of
his gray hairs, but used th» customary methods r>f
delving into si witness's mind to ascertain If he- had
digressed from facts. Then. too. there -was a trace
of sarcasm In his voice when be asked:
"<T»n<=ral. referring to that engagement In whl"~'i
you say your son Interposed bis b«dv between you
and the enemy's five, l wish to ask If any ope wa*
killed In the engagement?"
The question was excluded on Mr. McTntyre'*
strenuous oh.w-tion.
••Well, dj.s you consider ''m' a rational <>t an
irrational act?" asked the prosecutor. Thai
\Kr,-~ exrliulod.
"Are you familiar with the army regulations for
1903?** the witness was asked
"No. sir. I retired four years ago." re&pond^d
th*» general, who stated, however, that In a general
Tva\ bo \\n# familiar with army reflations.
"Well, If thai Is bo, do you know whether It Is
p«>nnis!»ibl« for iin officer on furlough to carry load
ed, dangerous weapons?"' The question was not
allowed.
"Tell me of an act you • -Her irrational on the
part of the defendant."
"In Washington at one Unu 'fonni"" lay on «
loutigo. Me plm^d his fr-c-t «.n th<> wall and naid to
his mother, 'Oh. damn your wall. ! am not hurting
it. 1 do not MC why you keep bothering me about
matters like that.' I consider that an Irrational
statement.
"When his wife's ronf<«s.sir>n. dictated by her !n

rational sta torrents. When her answer to hia di
vorce suit wn« tad by him he threw it across the
table to me and said. 'I expected to be accused of
every ■rim.-, on the calendar, but not of such things
as this names. My God, 1 didn't c-xppct tills '.' "
THORNTON HAINS THEATRICAL.
After Thornton J. Main* had given a brief ac
count of ho he was and how h» had first followed
the sea and later taken up magazine writing, he
pave a theatrical demonstration of how lilb brother
acted when he brokn Into his room In Bay Rldga
after learning from his wife, as alleged, of her re
lations with Am;!*. The witness nhouted as he
said his brother had done, and waved his arms as
he asserted Captain Main* did.
"Let this be the last of that." admonished the
Court. "] will have no theatrical testimony in
this court. Let the witness describe in words what
transpired and avoid demonstration.'"
The admonition was booe forgotten and at lea«t
half a. dozen times Justice Garretson bad to tell
the witness to control his tones. T'pon the motion
<>f the District Attorney the witness was instructed
to exclude from his testimony »uch expressions as
"I took my brother," and "I made my brother"
do thus and so. The witness invariably apologized
courteously when reprimanded.
Thornton Han. retold the story he- related at
his own trlai, but with considerable less circum
stantiality. His brother's counsel created some
thing of a nirprise ivhen he omitted from the <■-*-
amination ail reference to the actual shoot tak
ing tho witness no nearer th? float than the dock,
and then whisking: him Into the automobile that
bore lilrr. and his brother to the. police station.
Later Mr. Mclntyre explained that he did this to
compel the. District Attorney to use the brother
an his own witness regarding the shooting, »nd thus
prevent him from cross-examining him about it.
The. night adjournment was taken with Thornton
Haina f-till on the stand. A short session will be
held to-day.

CONDITION OF TRADE
Dun Review says:
Two developments of the week are of ipecial sig
nificance. One is the distinct improvement in the
iron and steel trade on which the whole industrial
situation so largely depends. The reduced prices
have stimulated an active demand, which In turn
brought ahout this week a lifting of prices on a
nuniber of products. The demand i* especially
notable for construction and agricultural interests
The other development is the foreign commerce
statement, which reveals extraordinary Importa
tions of crude materials for manufacturers' pur
poses a clear proof of reviving industry. The cold
weather of the week has, however, been unfavora
ble and hag retarded business In mercantile lines.
Bank clearings continue to make a gratifying ex
hibit, with an increase of 2.4 per cent over 19<v?
for the month of April (one day lacking), and
with an Increase of 17.5 per cent over 1908 outside
New York for this week. Railroad earnings also
show up well with an Increase for the three weeks
of April of 13 per cent over I!**, and a decrease
of 6.6 per cent as compared with 1307. The Interna
tional financial situation has been improved by the
course of events In Turkey, while the strength of
the banks Is indicated by the fact that the Bank
of England reports a reserve of .W.,11 per cent Spec
ulation In wheat and cotton Is l^ss a feature. The
outlook for winter wheat in Steadily better. Th<»
cotton goods market is most active in the West.
Print cloths are strong. Some cancellations of or
ders are reported In woollens. Hides are active,
with avancing prices. An Increase of $3.?44.97? over
1808 is reported for Imports in the foreign com
merce of New York for the latest week. The rec
ord is nearly equal to that of «07. The total com
merce of the port Is $.i.784.«l more than In W and
only 88.888 less than in I<V>7.
Bradst reefs says:
The keys to the trade and crop reports this week j
are to be found In the prevalence of unfavorable :
weather conditions, except in parts of the South.
These have operated to dull retail demand, check
reorder business with Jobbers and retard farming
operations and plant growth. Net results are a
disappointing April trade at retail, a hand-to
mouth Jobbing business and a generally late sea
son for most crops. The abundance of moisture
reported practically throughout the country, except
in parts of Texas, where drouth continues, how
ever places the agricultural situation in such shape
that a few weeks of warm growing weather, now
Imperatively necessary, will do wonders, and It Is
probably in view of expected chances in weather
favorable to crop growth and the passing soon of
the present tariff uncertainty- that wholes*!* trade
for next fall and winter is reported quite good.
•Summed up, therefore, the situation may be said
,'., lv» a current trade, wholesale and retail, better
than last rear, hut disappointing a« a whole, while
<>,c ton* for tbe future Is Still quite msrV»dly op- •

! officer to present the facts in the case before you.
It la my Intention to make this a test case. The
' evidence In it Is straJght and clear, and if a Jury
i <-ann«it ctnvict upon '• there is little hope that a

and bermudez Company. the New Trinidad Lake
Asphalt Company. Limited, and the Uintah Rail
way Company, shows net earnings for the year of
J1,(M7.1»), an increase over 1907 of RfK4. The excess
cos! of maintaining streets under guarantee, made
necessary a deduction of $155,425 for this purpose,
compared with »M..W for the previous year, and
resulted in a net srntn to surplus for the year of
$871,704, compared with $710,124 for the previous year.
A lost of J3.323.156 in gross income, compared with
the previous year, was therefore turned into an in
crease in net gain tn surplus of }161.f7!>.

ing the year ISOB was felt by the company in a re.
duction of its total volume of business from
115,147,666 in 1907 to $11.815,u28 in IMS, a shrinkage
of nearly 22 per cent.
Comparison of th« balance sheets of the company

largest In its history, exceeding 1003 by fMn.nno, and
exceeding the figure for a year ago by WMM The
balance sheet, which is made up to January 31.
1960, shows for that date: Inventory and current
assets, $4.«H.SSI; current liabilities, $2T>4,eoi: working
capital, H,*M\Z79. During the year the company
constructed nearly two million square yards of
