Eiendrick Hud ,,-. '.. Kingston Point and return See adys. — Advo NEW-YORK, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1910.- TWELVE PAGES.** PRICE ONE CENT ASKS FOR BIDDERS ON GREAI SUBWAY SYSTEM Triborough Scheme, Involving $125,000,000, May Be Built by Private Capital. CITY'S UMIT $60,000,000 Contractors Show Immediate Interest, and Hopes for Speedy Start of Work Run High. Another great step in the direction of further rapid transit facilities for the city was taken by the Public Service Com r mission yesterday, when it began adver tising for bids for the construction, equipment maintenance and operation of the entire triborough subway system by private capital and the construction by municipal money of the greater part of the Broadway-Lexington avenue route, the Broadway-Lafayette route, in Brook lyn, and the Canal street crosstown line. It is impossible at this time to adver tise for bids for the construction by municipal money of the entire tribor ough system, as its estimated cost is from $120,000,000 to 5125.000.000. The courts have decided that the full amount of contracts let in any one year are chargeable against the city debt limit, and not more than $60,000,000 is avail able for subway work this year. The bid? for construction, equipment and operation by private capital will be opened on October 20, and those for con struction by municipal money on Octo ber 27. Before any contract may be let by the Public Service Commission it must have the approval of the Board of Estimate. It is understood that the commission and Acting Mayor Mitchel are hopeful that bids for construction by municipal capital may be so favorable as to bring about their acceptance. They are await ing with interest to see what the Inter horough Rapid Transit Company will do. The Bradley-Gaifney-Steers Company told the commission some time ago it was ready to bid for construction and operation with its own money. It ob lected to some of the proposed financial terms, but these terms were modified, and a bid Is expected from it. Invitations Sent Broadcast. Within three hours from the time it was announced that the advertising for bids had begun the representative of a lar«»e steel concern was at the offices of the Public Service Commission to get a complete set of the contract forms and the specifications. The invitation of the Public Service Commission to bidders Is to be printed in papers in Chicago. St. Louis. Pittsburg. Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore in addition to the local papers. It Is also to appear in various technical journals, and notice of the advertisements has been sent to a list of one thousand con tractors in various parts of the United States The plans for the entire triborough system call for a total railroad of 44.21 miles in length, with a total trackage of 133 miles. That part of the system which calls for construction with mu nicipal money comprises 25 miles of rail road with a total trackage of 81.2 miles. There are three forms of contract, >TOT O 1 being a book of pome five hun dred pages, providing for the construc tion equipment, maintenance and oper ation by Private capital of the entire triborough system; except for some small portions that are already done or under construction. The parts are the Manhattan end of the Brooklyn loop subway, the con struction of which is practically com pleted and that part of the Fourth ave nue subway running from the Brooklyn end of the Manhattan Bridge to Fourth avenil€ and 43d street, in Brooklyn. which is now under contract. These parts will be open for bids, with the other part of the system, for equipment, maintenance and operation. " he other part? of the tri-borough cvsfem include the Broadway-Lexington subway, its extensions to Felham Bay Park and Woodlawn: the Canal street crosstown subway.: the Broadway fayette avenue subway, in Brooklyn, and ■ the two extensions of the Fourth avenue subway in Brooklyn, one to Fort Hamil ton and the other to Coney Island. A.s it is important that all parts of the system be completed at the same time, the commission in picking out the parts of the system to he designated in the invitations for construction alone with municipal money decided to take those which would take the longest to con struct. Contract form No 2 provides for the construction in this way of the Broad way-Lexington subway from the Bat tery to 140 th street on the Jerome ave nue branch, ad to Third avenue on the Southern Boulevard and Westchester avenue branch. Contract form No. 3 calls for the construction with municipal money of the Broadway-Lafayette line and the -"anal street crosstown line. Reasons for Delays. The bids have been called for after considerable delay, due not only to the usual red tape, but also to the fact that the transit committee of the Board of Estimate made a large number of criti cisms of the forms of contract as orig inally drawn by the engineers of the commission. Following a series of con ferences between members of the com mission and Acting Mayor Mitchel, rep resenting the transit committee, the dif ferences were amicably settled. "The forms of contract were entirely in the hands of the commission," said the acting Mayor yesterday, "but the tran sit committee made a number of sugges tions for the good of the city. They were received by the commission in the Continued on third page. LABOR DAY AT ATLANTIC CITY. Solid Veatlbuled Trains, via New Jersey Central, leave W. IU .weak day* 1 9:60 i M I- 1 "* P M.

Newark an.l SUSPICIOUS CASE HOLDS LINER AI QUARANTINE Health Officer, Suspecting Chol era en Lusitania, Will Make Examination. STEERAGE PASSENGER ILL Doctors Refuse to Discuss Case, but Will Not Take Chances Pending Result of Bac teriologica! Test. The cholera scare ha? reached New York The bip Cunarder Lusitania. with 2-°44 passengers on board, was detained at Quarantine last ni^ht, while the ill ness of one of the steerage papsen^rers was investigated. The man was in a serious condition when the doctors at Quarantine derided that it would be bet ter to hoiri th^ while a bacteriologi cal examination was made to determine the exact nature of the malady While the health authorities would not admit there was even any symptom of cholera, in answer to a query whether the cholera scare was responsible for the careful examination that was hemp made nne of the officials at Quarantine replied: "Presumably so; but we cannot say there is anything like that on board." Meanwhile, eight hundred persons, many in evening dress, were fretting and fuming on the Cunard pier. Among the passengers exp^ted on the ship are some prominent in society, and their friends turned out in force to meet them. All sorts of rumors ■were current on the pier when the big ship which was expected to dock last night failed to show. One story was that the pilot had refused to bring her up against the strong ebb tide. Another story, which appeared to h» nearer the truth, was that the doctor who came on board at Quarantine had gone back to the island for another doc tor, and that the ship had started on. the examination believed to be over, but had been recalled. Finally, at 11:35 p. m, it was an nounced that the Lusitania would not dock last night. No explanation was given. Then there was a rush for the exit. A second gatf had to bp opened. Tickets to meet incoming passengers are issued to "Mr So -and -So and one" or "two," as the case may be. As practically all those on the pier wanted to return for the arrival of the ?hip. they sought to get back th--> pasteboards, which had been tossed into a heap. The men at the eato were harri put to it to sort out the re quired cards. Outside the Cunard sheds fully a hun dred and fifty automobiles and taxicabs were lined up. and their owner? or fares had some difficulty in finding- their cars. Thnsp not fortunate enough to have au tomobiles at their disposal filled the 14th street cars and mad? their way home. The steamship Pan Giovanni from Naples and Palermo, with passengers aboard from Trani. Italy, where cholera has been reported, was also detained at Quarantine last night until Dr. Doty cculd investigate the d<*nth of a four teen-year-old girl who died at sea five cifiys ago "There is no illness aboard and I know of nothing suspicious about the case." said Dr. Doty last night, "but caution dictates a special investigation. If the results are satisfactory the San Giovanni will go to her berth to-morrow morning ' The customs inspectors who had been detained on piers late at night three times this week by the late docking of Cunard steamships complained about the detention of the. l,usitania. There were l.V> men on the pier last night to ex amine the baggage of the Lusitania's cabin passenger complement of about nine hundred persons. Many of them had been up until midnight on the Milli ard pier on Tuesday night because of the late docking of the Caronia and on Wednesday .night when the Pannonia came in from Naples at 9:30 o'clock. The inspectors will have to meet the Lusitanla this morning at 7 a. m.. and as the majority of them live In the sub urbs they will have had little or no sieep. Several inspectors declared last night that it is an unwise plan for the government to put tired and sleepy men on the baggage examination. General Henry, the Surveyor of Cus toms, went up to the pier last night to observe the. late docking and see for himself its effect upon passengers and Inspectors He left the pier when he heard the Lusltania had anchored for the night. MESSINACATASTROPHE ECHO Young Survivor Sent For by Brother Here Unable to Land. Shortly after the earthquake destroyed Messina, nearly two years ago, Antonio Fa<M"la. a scene painter, of No. 138 Clin ton street, who was born there, went hack to the ruined city and spent two months searching for some living mem ber of his family. The house where his father and mother and brothers and sis ters lived lay flat upon the ground, and the bodies found under it later he could not recognize as any of his kin. and he returned to New York.

HUNGARIAN-AMERICAN BANK MAKES A CHANGE Foreign Stockholders Elect President in Place of William E. Holloway. FIGHTING THE CHAIN SYSTEM Promoters, Balked in Field of National Earikr,, Turn At tention to State In stitutions. William E. Holloway, of Montgomery. Ala., came to this city about a year ago and went into rh<> banking business. After being president of the Hungarian- American Eank. at No. :"_' Broadway. sinre la?t December, he has just trans ferred his services to the Northern Bank, of New York, at Broadwaj and Astor Place, where he becomes vice-president. The story of his connection with the Hungarian-American Bank is interest ing, while hi? activities in the Northern Bank, of New York, are still a matter of speculation. Holloway came to this city while the Hungarian-American Bank, then under the presidency of E. P. A. de Lima, was in the throes of internecine strife. The American holders of the bank's stock had just a bit above a majority, and their ideas of a proper policy disagreed with those of Eugen Boross, the vice-presi dent and representative of the foreign stockholders. Affairs finally came to such a pass that an ultimatum was is sued that one side or the other must get out. Holloway appeared on the scene at I this juncture from his Southern home, where he had been president of the Montgomery Bank and Trust Company, an organization with a capital of $21,000 and deposits of $489,000. He formed friendships here with R. W. J^nes, jr. now of the National Reserve Bank, at No. IH"> Broadway, and formerly of the Seventh National and the Oriental banks: E. K. Stallo. father of the 515. 000,000 Stallo girls and son-in-law of the late Alexander McDonald, of Cin cinnati and the Standard Oil Company; Herbert T. Jennings, an electric rail road and real estate promoter, and E. P. Metcalf, president of the Atlantic National Bank, of Providence. Gets tb© Hungarian- American, Th» American shareholders in the Hungarian-American Bank received a good offer for their stock, and being absorbed in the light with the foreign holders, supposed it came from them and sold out Wfeen the smoke of battle clearp'l and the new president and di rectors wfere elected, i' was seen that the purchasers of the stock were Hollo way and Metcalf. Holloway became the new president and Metcalf a director. while the board was filled with their friends, and the foreign war went on as merrily as ever. In the mean time. Holloway bought a controlling interest in the First National Bank of Middletown. N. V.. and the group of friends became the controlling stockholders in the Mount Veraon Na tional Bank, of which Jennings was president There were thus four banks un ri>r the combined control The Hungarian-American Bank was probably the most valuable asset. It was established four years ago by Eugen BorO ss with a capital of J200.00&. It now has a surplus of SHXXOOO and de posits of more than $800,000. This is not enough to startle the banking world, but rhe business that passes through its hands is enormous, and its foreign con nections have almost unlimited poten tiality. The foreign stork is held by a Hungarian institution with a capital of $125,000,000 which is the clearing house of'eix hundred and eighty Hungarian savings banks. The bank here was es tablished for a convenience for Hun garian immigrants in sending their sav ing? back to the Old country, and more than $80,000,000 a year passes through its hands. Foreigners Keen Up Fight. Although Holloway and Metcalf had acquired control of the stock of the hank, the foreign shareholders did not purpose to give up its great business and possibilities without a struggle. Holloway. on the other hand, wanted to change the name and give it a distinctly American flavor and institute various new methods in the way of doing busi ness. The struggle lasted for nearly half a year, and then Mr. Boross made a trip abroad, lasting about three months He came back recently with all necessary powers, and on Wednesday there was another election at the bank. Mr. Hol loway resigned, announcing that he had received a nattering offer from the Northern Bank of New York and was ahout to become vice-president of that institution. Holloway's friends were al ready out of the directorate, and the board was filled up with men friendly to the foreign interests. It is understood that Holioway and Metcalf cleaned up a very considerable profi* on the transactions, but the for eign stockholders now own 9<> per cent of the stock of the bank, and are in a fair way to get It all.

CURTISS BEATS TRAIN Makes Return Journey Over Lake Erie, Despite Rain. A NEW WORLD'S RECORD One Hundred Thousand Persons Witness Finish of Flight at Cleveland. Cleveland. Pept. 1 —Racing with a fast Lake Shore mail train. Glenn H Curtiss drove his biplane to-day over the water from Cedar Point to Euclid Beach, an airline distance of sixty miles, com pleting a 120-mile round trip flight be gun yesterday, and establishing an un questioned world's record for over-trie water flights. Incidentally, he beat the train into Cleveland a full seventeen minutes. Encountering contrary air current* Curtiss was unable to maintain a high rate of speed, taking 1 hour and 42 min utes for the flight. The actual distance traversed, estimated at the United States hydrographic office, was 64%t miles. At 2:47 o'clock this afternoon Curtiss ascended over Lake Erie from the sandy beach at. Cedar Point. At 4:12. p. m. the aeroplane, after fighting a nineteen-mile breeze all the way. passed the centre of Cleveland, and reached Euclid Beach at exact!" 4:29 p. m. A crowd of fifty thousand persons gathered on the beach, surrounded him and insisted on shaking his hands, but the police rescued him and took him to a telephone, over which he greeted Mrs. Curtiss. who had Just arrived at her hotel. She was on the train which Cur tiss distanced. A drizziing rain was falling when Curtiss gave the order for the smarting of his motor.
