Revised Legal Opinion on
Grade Crossing Claims.
Argument will take place on Monday be
fore Justice Blackmar. la the Supreme
Court. Kings County, upon the application
of the Liong island Railroad Company for
• mandamus order to compel the Controller
to pay $2-5.000 claimed to bo due as the
city's chare of the cost of removing grade
crossings from the railway company's Bay
Ridge branch, in the Borough of Brooklyn.
The hearing of this application has been
twice postponed at the request of the Cor
poration Counsel's offlce. on the ground
that the questions involved are of the
greatest importance to the taxpayers and
demand a thorough examination of the pro
visions of the act of the Legislature uu
lhoriziiis the work and the specific condi
tions under which the improvement is being
carried on. This would seem to indicate
tiial Corporation Counsel Watson is not
prepared to accept the opinions given by
his predecessors la office, that the city Is
liable under the terms of the grade cross
ing act to pay one-half the cost of convert
ing the Bay Ridge branch of the lx>ng Isl
and Railroad from a one and two track
lin* with impotfcible shades into a two and
four track low grado trunk line, under
ISjiilßliOM intended to provide only for the
elimination of grade crossing*.
The railroad company la its petition for a
mandamus order practically admits that
extensive betterments are included in the
plans of the improvement as they are being
carried out, one-half~r>f the cost of which
U being assessed against the city. Tin
railroad was. according to the company's
petition, originally built as a summer ex
cursion railroad for the purpose of carry
ins; passengers to Coney Island from Man
hattan by one terminus which was situated
in Long Island City and by another which
I* situated at Bay Ridge, the latter of
•which was reached by tie 39th street ferry.
Tee railroad was located through farm
Since that time, the petition continues.
Brooklyn has crown so that almost the en
tire area traversed by the railroad has be
come built up and occupied by a large and
congested population. In order to handle
both local and through freights, the peti
tion state*, many additional tracks, tidings'
and switches will have to be constructed at
points along the railroad to accommodate
the great increase In traffic.
The engineers of the Finance Department,
recites the petition, claimed that because
the railroad, as existing at the time the
«rade crossing act was passed, operated
over only one and two tracks, which did
not cover the whole right of way, the
Brooklyn Grade Crossing Commission was
net authorized to determine that the con
structicn of bridges across intersecting
streets to the full width of the right of
way was part of the cost of the improve
ment one-he If of which was to be paid by
the city, and that the commission should
r^-. e included in such joint account that
part of the cost of such bridges as would
accommodate the tracks that were actually
in r\ittfnce at the time the work was au
thorized, and that the difference between
the cost of t-uch a bridge and that covering
Th» full width of the right of way was a
betterment to the railroad, the cobt of
which it must bear.
fjbs> petition also recites that, in spite of
a legal opinion given by the Corporation
Counsel to the contrary, former Controller
Jlctz was guided by the opinions expressed
by bis engineers, and refused to pay claims
for work done on the improvement that
had been duly certified to as correct by the
Brooklyn Grade Crossing Commission, a
body officially charged with the duty of
.:)(■ !ic:n)j the work.
II Is understood that the present Corpora
tion Counsel will revise the stand taken by
his predecessors in oflice and that the city
v. ill contest the application Cor a m.inda
niUf order on the around that the Brooklyn
<;iadc Crossing Commission exceeded its
jurisdiction In certifying claims payment
Bf which is ought In the mandamus pro
iceding. The conduct of the case has been
I'lnccd by the Corporation Counsel la the
bands of R. P. Chittcndcn. of the main
effice, although previous opinions given by
the Corporation Counsel's ofiice upon the
matter emanated from the Brooklyn office
cf the city's law department.

Witness Says Gang Forced
Him to Print Counterfeits.
Antonio Comlto. the principal witness In
the trial of the oielit men charged with
counterfeiting, looked a little worried as
lie took the stand yesterday in the Crimi
nal Branch of the United States Sffeolt
Court. The prisoners looked haggard and.
worn. Their counsel declared that they had
had nothing to cat since the recess of the
day before. Marshal Hrtikcl promised that
they should be fed.
.Tudge Kay .it th« beginning asked tM
Jurymen not to read anything about the
ease. Then he asked that sensationalism be
omitted from the accounts of the proceed
ing. It would be unfair, he t-ald. to ex
clude the newspaper men from the court,
as it might, put them out of business, and
the high pries of provision* would cause
suffering among them. Ho smiled. and
everybody smiled, and then Abel I. Smith,
who is prosecuting the accused men for Mm
government, began to examine Comito from
the place where the story had been dropped
at adjournment the day before.
Comito shrank back as Mr. Smith flashed
the stiletto found in Marshal Honkers room
several days ago after a call from friends
of the prisoners for permits to visit them
in the Tombs.
"Who owns this dagger?" asked th« pros
The witness didn't know. Mr. Smith put
the glittering weapon into the sheath, and
Marshal Honkers men. who were many In
the room, looked relieved.
The marshal has permitted the stiletto in
cident to grow in importance as the days
since its discovery on the sofa in his room
have passed. At the time it was believed
to have slipped out of the pocket of one of
the visitors by accident. Yesterday a des
perate plot to assassinate the whole federal
complement in the building was evolved
from the discovery. To guard against
bombs, stilettos, assaults and the like the
marshal excluded from the court all for
eigners who were not witnesses. The at
mosphere was not quite so thick as on the
day before.
The story told by Comlto under examina
tion was full of Denny-dreadful incidents.
The process of printing the spurious Cana
dian bank notes was explained in detail;
visits to the lonely farm near Highland, N.
V., by the men on trial, and Journeys to
this city by the witness and the meeting
heie with alleged leaders of the hand, now
amon^ the eight defendants, Giuseppi Mo
rello and lenacio Lupo. were recited. There
had been a threat to blow Comlto' s brains
out, and this had kept him at work for a
long time.
While Comito was running the printing
press a boy wt«s on guard outside the iso
lated farmhouse. He -was relieved from.
time to time by one of the defendants, the
witness «?aid. adding that Antonio Cecala,
now on trial, told him a year ago to hurry
with the work on the Canadian notes.
There was a call for |tt,660 of the United
States $2 silver certificates. Comito said
< eoala informed him. The plates for these
were ready.
In twenty days, the witness testified, 5,000
of the spurious $2 silver certificates had
been printed. Soon of tor this L,upo made
a visit to the farm. It was 2 o'clock in
the morning when no came, and Comito
said that L,upo had rifles, revolvers and
ammunition. Mirabcau L. Towns, counsel
for the mm. objected when Mr. Smith tried
to bring out something, through the wit
ness, about the past of I^upo and Morello.
lie said it was Dart of a stage proceeding,
and he was in the midst of an address when
Judge Ray cut it short.
"Oh, don't make a speech. Make your ob
jection," the court said, and the attempt to
bring out the history of the men was
checked, at least for the time being.
Then there came a time when the accused
men were gathered at the farm to count
the proceeds of the sale of the spurious
hills and notes, according to the witness.
They were disgruntled, he said. He con
"Morello told me I had done a filthy Job,
and he should throw the bills in my face.
Lano said they should burn the bills on my
h^ad. Morello said that only $4,000 of the
$J bills had been sold and only $800 collect
ed. They decided to pet new plates and a
new man. and I Should help him. They
said to me. 'You know what we are do
ing' and 'Atanost any one can be an In
former.' If I Informed on them I was told
my brains would be blown out."
Comito Identified several packages of the
spurious notes. He said ho was badly treat
ed after the new man came. He was <Jiu
eeppl Callachio. one of the eight defend
ants. The witness said that Callachio made
14JN of the $2 silver certificates. Then
Comito made an attempt to leave the farm,
but one of the defendants, Salvatore Cilia,
"I said, 'This is not my business,' the
witness continued. "Cina said: 'You Cala
brian, if you had to deal with some people
they would cut you up into little bits. 1 1
went back to work."
As he adjourned the court Judge Ray said
that he would sit later to-day. Comlto left
the courtroom under the protection of Se
cret Service men.
L«upo, against whom bankruptcy proceed
ings wan begun last week, received an ex
tension of time yesterday before Judge
Hand In the United States Circuit Court
until February IR to apply for a discharge.
This was granted on the application <>f
I>upo, who. through counsel, explained that
he was on trial, and could not attend to the
matter at the present time.

Independents $how How Com
petition Was Killed.
The notorious "dead wagon," which. It
has been charged, the Milk Dealers' Protec
tive Association sent over the routes of in
dependent dealers to undersell and drive
them out of business, figured In both the At
torney General's and the grand jury's probe
of the Milk Trust yesterday.
Several of the dealers testified before
fteforco William (riant Brown as to the
tactics used by the association in which
this a iron took part. At th« same time
Oeorge W. Bleffrrt. of No. 42S East SDtli
street, the driver 1 of the vehicle, occupied
the time' of the entire session of the grand
."Jury and had an opportunity to enlighten
the members of that hotly on the subject.
Officers of the association have d' fined
Bleffert's duties as thos* of a collector of
stray can?.
Tane Holland. .1 dealer, of Ko. i r: n t Tarlc
n venue, testified that he rtiSilgSi from a
wholesale dealer named Liebennan, a mem
ber of the ilk Dealers' Protective Associa
tion, to Miller Brothers, when the latter of
fered him milk at 20 i^nts less. ; Blsffcrt
came along, he said, and enticed him away
from th« Millers with a further reduction In
the price of 20 cents a can. The Miller con
cern lost another customer in Nathan Mo
gMof, of No. 401 Bast 7Sth street, when
Bleffert appeared on the sc^ne. According
to Mogolof, Kleffert cut the Miller price 40
cents a can.
The first connecting link between the
meeting of milk dealers in Williamsburg
last fall and the Milk Dealers' Protective
Association of Manhattan, was supplied by
Charles Orr, of the National Dairy Com
pany. In Brooklyn. He understood that th«
question of price was discussed at the meet
inn, which was presided over by John P.
Wierck, of the Empire State Dairy Com
pany. On that occasion Orr heard about a
dinner of the protective association, and
bought a ticket for $;>.
C. 11. C. Beakos, of tho Beakes Dairy
Company, the next witness, said he presid
ed at this dinner, although he was not a
member. He acknowledged talking to an
other dealer named James C. Rider about
raiding the price, but denied that he had
urged Rider to do He admitted dis
cussing in a casual way the subject of rais
ing the price with men connected with both
the Borden and the Sheffield Farms <r>m
William Rogers, president of the Shef
field Farms company, it wag alleged by
Joseph A. Ferris, head of the Ferris Milk
and Cream Company, years ago trailed his
wagons to lure away customers. Mr. Fer
ris then told a long story of the difficulties
he met in getting his milk supply and the
obstacles which had been thrown in his way
because he insisted on conducting his busi
ness independently. lie said that his wag
ons were tampered with, nuts removed from
the wheels, po that loads of milk broke down
in the streets, and drivers were Inveigled
into drinking and neglecting their work.
Adolph Huth, manager of the New York
Dairy Produce Company, who acknowledged
being at the "vVillLamsburg meeting, said he
had intended to raise the price, but at the
last moment changed his mind because two
of his competitors did not raise it.
It is understood that Ferris, Huth,
Beakes, Orr and Helfand will be called
upon to testify before the grand jury.
Joseph L&emmle, secretary of the Con
solidated Milk Exchange, has been sub*
pcenaed to appear before the jury to-day.
Samuel Levy, one of the members of the
Milk Dealers' Protective Association, had a
long talk with Assistant District Attorney
Do Ford yesterday, and is also expected to
testify to-day.

It wouldn't mean much to cither of th.m.

They Can't Eat Ton Much,
Says Dr. Hutchinson.
That one can't give children too much to
eat. and should. in fact, feed them flit
day long, is the theory which Dr. Woods
Hutchinson set forth yesterday at the
Academy of Medicine. No. 17 West 43d
street. In the first of a series of lectures
which the public health committee of
the New York County Medical Society hi
giving In conjunction with the hygiene
committee of the New York City Federa
tion of Women's Clubs. His subject was
"Proper Food for School (Children."
"You can't give a child too much" to
rat." Dr. Hufchinson said, "so long as he
likes what he eats. He generally knows
■what is good for him. just the way r cat or
a dog does. He has a bottled up intelli
gence insie'e of him, Which, If you give It
a chance, will see as well as you what
foods are best for him. If he tends to
gorge himself on sweets, you may know
that his system craves that form of food.
because you don't give him enough of it in
his daily diet.

ourselves of the superstition that children
