those two organizations made suggestions
yesterday looking toward the improvement

"The?,-' suggestions aro made at this

City Saves More than August
Statement Had Indicated.
The long-standing dispute over the claims
for extra work or the origii*al subway con
tract has been settled apparently. The
Public Service Commission sent to the
Eoj,r<i of Kslimate and Apportionment
yesterday a communication which embodied
the settlement reached by arbitration after
a year and a iialf or more. It was not a
finding by the arbitrators, however, as an
agreement bad been reached already by
representatives of the city and the Inter
borough interests.
It was announced in August that an
agreement had been reached by which the
city should pay 52,,000,0» in settlement of the
extra claims. It turns out. however, that
the city doe« even better than was at first
stated. The general principles on which the
settlement was to be made were announced
in August, but the details were left to be
worked out.
The claim was made under the original
contract made with John B. McDonald.
which the Rapid Transit Subway Construc
tion Company took o\«er. The full amount
was *6,W5.514 92. This has been cut down
to 5.1,684,109 33.

Holiday Idleness of Animals a Danger
to Them. S. P. C. A. Announces.
The American Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals has sent out a warn
ing to horse, owners against the feeding of
their animals on full rations without exer
cise, on Sunday and New Years Day. On
Tuesday last, after two days' idleness in
the stalls on full rations, upward of a hun
dred horses were stricken in the streets
with a disease known as azoturia.
This disease causes the loss of control
over the hind legs and usually develops In
the fits* few hours of work. It is frequent
ly fatal and almost always leaves a weak
ness from which the animal seldom re
covers. It can be avoided by exercising the
horse for a couple of hours on the second
day of idleness, or by cutting down the
food allowance.

But It Was Hard for Staten Isl
and and South Brooklyn.
Dock Commissioner Arranges
Truce in Fight in Behalf of
Discharged Men.
For more than five hours yesterday the
Staten Island and South Brooklyn munici
pal ferries were held up by an unexpected
strike, and during that time there was in
consequence only one way for the citizens
of the Borough of Richmond to leave the
bucolic haunts over there and get a look
a! their fellow townsmen across the bay in
It whs too cold to swim, and there was
a dearth of rowboats. The one and only
channel of egress was by way of the fer
ries to Xew Jersey. That was such a.
roundabout way. however, that the ma
jority of intending visitors to Manhattan
preferred to stay at home rather than take
that route.
The strike was started by the firemen
employed on the ferries. They decided
that the 5:35 o'clock boat from St. (ieorge
should be the last to run. as far as they
were concerned, until ttnrir companions
who tvere laid off recently were permitted
<<> return (o work. Oommisrioner Tomkins
of the Dock Department, however, suc
ceeded in getting the boats going again
shortly after 2 p. m.
By the time the firemen slnrrrd their pro
gramme the majority <>r ihe commuters
had already gone to their Manhattan
places of business. Nevertheless, a crowd
of about three hundred soon jammed the
ferryhouse. They gazed and gazed in the
direction of the Battery, expecting every
moment t<» see a boat coming to their res
cue; but none came.
In the mean time their number con
stantly was bein^ augmented, by reason
of the fact that the officials of the Staten
Island transit lines rtirl not warn persona
bound Cor the ferry that no boats were
running. All who wished to board the cars
were accommodated and eventually swelled
the throng at the fferryhouse.
South Brooklyn in Same Fix.
Persons who attempted to reach Man
hattan from South Brooklyn also were in
the same fix as Staten Islanders, for the
firemen on that line joined the strike.
'm the Manhattan end <>f the system
there was ,even more trouble. The clamor
became so pronounced at length that Ihe
people inside th<* ferryhouses received
their fares back. < >ne of the would-be pas
sengers was Borough President Cromwell,
who made surh an objection at being
exiled from his bailiwick that the Dock
Department lent its tugboat Manhattan to
take him home.
The streets in "the vicinity of the ferry
houses were congested with traffic.
Funerals on their way to Staten Island and
Brooklyn were jammed in between loaded
and unloaded trucks, and the police re
serves had to- be called upon to straighten
out the tangle.
Among the greatest sufferers from the
tie-up were the Staten Island brewers, who
were accustomed to make thoir Manhattan
deliveries in the morning. Scores of the
wagons caught the last boat, but wore un
able to get back, except by taking the
roundabout Jersey trip.
It was feared for a time thn* the strike
would interfere seriously with the mail
service between Staten Island and Man
hattan, but the first mail was dispatched
before tiie trouble began and the subse
quent deliveries wore made by the tugboat
Commissioner Tomkins tritd hard all
morning to conciliate the strikers, but his
efforts were unsuccessful until the after
noon. Then Timothy Healy, president of
the International Brotherhood of Station
ary Firemen, called at the department of
fices. After a short conff>renc^ the strike
was dec'aredj off and the men, «lio had
gathered In a hal in Moore street, imme
diately returned <> the boats which they
had deserted in the morning.
Grievances To Be Submitted.
The Commissioner. it is understood.
promised the strikers that if they returned
to work at once arc 1 submitted their griev
ances in writing h- would consider them
and return an answer as soon as possible.
He Insisted, however, that they work with
six firemen to ■ crew.
The municipal ferries are of a different
construction than those operated by rail
road companies and private corporations,
and. according to the I'nited States in
spectors of steamboats, they require larger
crew?. Kach of the municipal boats ha.s
two stoke holes. Up until eight months
ago eight men were employed to feed <<>al
to the furnaces. Then one man was laid
off from each boat, leaving four in on?
stoke hole and three in the other. The
Bremen objected to this change.
Th> reduction in the number of firemen
followed an investigation by the Commis
sioner of Accounts, in which he found that
the crews on the municipal boats were
much larger than those employed by tlm
railroads to operate thHr ferries of equal
size. He then asked the Inited States In
spection Bureau to make a re-examination.
The inspectors reported that the number
of firemen might be reduced even from
seven to six and at the same tim« ordered
an increase in the number of firemen on
the railroad ferries.
It #fculd seem that the striking firemen
could have no grievance as far as their
wages are concerned, for they receive more
money than firemen on the railroad ferries,
and while they have the same hours they
work under much better conditions, their
quarters '"eing well ventilated and having
various labor saving devices. The munici
pal Bremen receive £*> a month and work
in eight-hour shifts, while the railroad men
receive JT"- a month and have to work In
what arc- known as "split shifts."

Retail Side of Hackett, Carhart
& Co. Sold to Former Employe.
E. E. Turlington Gets Control of
Clothing Business a nd Use
of Firm's Name.
Like the fable of the camel and the tent.
E. E. Turlington, who once swept floors
for Hackett. Carhart & Co., now owns the
company's retail business. But unlike the
camel's, his usurpation is ;i friendly one.
Mr. Turlington is Hip proprietor of a
small clothing and tailoring establishment
directly across Broadway from the Hack
ett. I'arhart & Co. store, between 13th and
14th streets. Doubtless, since last March,
when he opened his place, he had cast
many a covetous glance through bis plate
glass door at the big department store op
postte, whose huge sign flaunted itself be
fore him like a challenge. As superintend
ent for Hackett, Carhart & Co. Mr. Tur
lington had opened this store and managed
it for seven years. He knew what he
Tho negotiations for the purchase, cov
ering a period of three months, have just
been completed. Albert B. Colfax. of
Hackett. Carhart * Co.. says Mr. Turling
ton is not the real purchaser, but is act
ing for a man of high financial standing
whose name has not been made public.
Mr. Turlington says this man has bought
the business for him (Turlington), and that
he Is to have a freo hand in running it.
The transaction gives Mr. Turlington the
entire retail sfock in the Hackett, t'ar
hart & Co. stores at No. 2«5 and No. 841
Broadway, as well as the fixtures, the use
of the firm name and the leases. Tn addi
tton Mr. Turlington has acquired the busi
ness in this city of Byck Brothers at No.
(SI ir> l<so East IC.'.th street, including fixt
ures, stock in hand and lease, whi^h he
will renovate and continue as a branch of
Hackett. Carhart & Co., Inc. Retail. The
clothing and tailoring store under Turling
ton's own name will be doubled in size
and be continued under his name.
The purchase of Hackett, Carhart & Co.'s
retail business will not become actually ef
fective, it is understood, until April 1, 1911,
and in the mean time Mr. Turlington plans
to incorporate his properties under the
Ftyle Hackett, Carhart & Co.. inc.. Retail.
The personnel of the corporation will con
sist of Mr. Turlington, as president and
general manager, and two associates whose
names are' withheld. The president-elect
said yesterday that neither of his asso
ciates was in the clothing or textile busi
ness and that they would not have an ac
tive interest In the new venture. "When
Mr. Turlington was asked how much
money the, entire transaction involved, he
replied "Enough," but lie would -not go into
The. disposal of the retail en<l will not
affect the. wholesale business of Hackett.
carhart &■ Co. It will give c. H. ilackef
more lime to devote to the Bank of the
Metropolis, of whefa he is president, and to
his other interests, however.
Mr. Hackett's only comment yest-.-rday
was to the effect that Mr. Turlington knew
better how to run the stores now than he
did when he first entered the firm's em
ploy. That was twenty years ago. when
Mr. Turlington, who is forty-f->ur years
old, first came to New York from Wil
mington, N. C.
Mi. Hackett gave him :t job sweeping
floors In the wholesale department of
Hackett. Carhart & <- 0 .. then situated at
Canal street and Broadway. The new
comer was soon promoted to the stock de
partment, then to the shipping department
and then to the post of Hssistant to the
superintendent of the retail store at No.
286 Broadway.
Some years later Mr. Turlington went to
Klmira. where, as superintendent, he built
up the business of \V. B. Hallock X- Bro.
After a stay of eighteen months there Mr.
Hackett called him back to New York, to
become manager of the 13th street store.
l>ater still he went to Brill Brothers and
opened their 14th street store, l^.st March
he went in for himself.
Some Alienists Hold He Is Paretic,
Others That He Is Paranoiac.
..amps .1. Gallagher, who shot Mayor
Gaynor, has become a source of disagree
ment among the alienists and another ex
pert has been drawn in. Jr.J >r. Robert Ken
nedy, who. accompanied by r»r. Alexander
Mi-Lane Hamilton, v?sited the county "jail,
Jersey City, yesterday afternoon and ex
amined the prisoner. The four New Jersey
medical men, !>rs. George H. Sexsmith, of
Bayonne; .lulu. l>. McGill, of Jersey City;
William J. Arlitz. of Hoboken, and Harry
Coi ton. of Trenton, also made another ex
amination to b<> convinced that their
diagnosis was correct.
it is said the experts are agreed that
Gallagher is insane, but are divided as to
the form of tiio disease. The New Jersey
medical men, it is reported, have decided
tlat the symptoms conclusively prove that
Gallagher is a paretic and that the Man
1 attan experts are equally positive that
the prisoner is a paranoiac. The judicial
Inquiry into th-> mentul condition of Gal
lagher has been set down for Tuesday, and
Justice Swayae will preside. County Judges
