Proposed Contracts for Dual
System Turned Over to
Counsel for Their
Final Drafting.
Mass of Minor Details Still
Faces Lawyers ? Inter
borough Offered Conces?
sions?Willcox Like?
ly to Hold Over.
The proposed subway contracts for
the dual system were turned over yea?
tcrduy to counsel for the Public Ser?
vice Commission and the Interhorough
Rapid Transit Company for their final
drafting, according: to members of the
commission. Practically all the points
suggested for change have been agreed
upon, and there remains only the physi?
cal work of drafting the revised forma
It was said, which becomes the task of
the legnl advisers. The points at issue
on the Brooklyn Rapid Transit t'om
pany contracts were said to have been
satisfactorily adjusted at the COO?
ference on Thursday.
Chairman Willcox said last night
that further conferences with the
Interborough were unlikely. He said
there were one or two minor changes
yet to be made in the provisions of
that company's contracts, but that an
agreement had been reached upon
them, and another conference probably
would not be necessary.
Matters were substantially smoothed
out at what was probably the last con?
ference, at Mr. Willi ox's home on Fri?
day night. Chalrmafl WlOcoa did not
wish, however, to tlx a definite time
when the contracts would be ready for
execution He intimated that It might
tike several days for the lawyer* to go
over the mass of details essential to
the redrafting of the instruments.
No Reason for Material Delay.
"Satisfactory progress has been made
on every point," said Mr. Willcox, ?and
I see no reason now for any material
delay. All of the main suggestions
brought up'ia\e been arranged for, but
1 don't care to say that everything has
been settled. The minor points at Issue
probably will not necessitate another'
formal conference with the representa?
tive of the companies. The work of re?
drafting the contracta is now in the
hands of counsel, but that may take
esterai days before they are ready for
the Board of Estimate. A'e are not
employing any undue haste, but we are
getting ahead as fast as possible."
Bather definite assurances were Riven
to the Purlii Service Commission yes?
terday, it is understood, that Governor
Buhter would not rush the appointment
of Mr. WUleax'a successor, so that he
i an hold over if the contracts are not
ready to be signed before February 1.
Mr. Willcox and his associates on the I
commission who stand with him in
favor of the contracts, however, were
not hurrying matters because of such
assurances, it was said. There was a
certain amount of work ahead to be
done Irrespective of any other consid?
eration, and it would be done carefully
end thoroughly In accordance with
every consideration for the -ity's in?
terests. Mr. Willcox declared.
Still, after all was said and done,
yesterday, the prospect was much more
cheerful than at any time recently,
ami Mr. WtllCOX and the other com?
missioners, who have been Riving so
much of their time to the Solution of
the transit problem for the last three
years, reflected their satisfaction in
look and voice. There is every reason
to suppose that the most vexatious
question the city has ever encountered
will be settled once and for all In tho
near future.
Interborough Offered Concessions.
One of the conferrees pointed out yes?
terday that a long stride toward tho
final and harmonious agreement was
made at the conference at the Mayor's
office on Friday, when counsel for the
Interborough offered certain conces?
sions which went far to smooth over
the difficulties then requiring settle?
Corporation Counsel Watson, who
was present at the conference with tho
Mayor and later at the one with the.
commissioners at Mr. Wlllcox's home.
Is said to approve of the contracts ivi
they will bS finally submitted to the
Board of Est?mate. As his formal ap?
proval is necessary before the con?
tracts are signed, his advance opinion
will obviate any material delay when
he has to pass upon them.
Among the callers at the home of
Mr. Willcox during the final conf?r
aaesa on the contracts was Scth Low.

adoption of the dual system funda?

Mr. Ix?w submitted to the commis?
sioners his letter to Governor Sulzer
In which he pointed out In detail his
reason? for be?OVing the present plans
the best that could be obtained by the
city, and at the same time urging the
retention of Mr. Willcox until the con?
tracts were signed.
Hundreds of letters and resolutions,
from citizens and various civic and
commercial organizations, have been
added to Chairman Wlllcox's files dur?
ing the last few days urging that the
contracts be signed at once.
The committee appoint Si at the meeting
of the twenty-three commercial and civic
organizations, held at the rooms of
the Merchants' Association on Friday,

to urge Governor Sulzer to take no action
which may delay or prevent the final exe?
cution of the dual subway contracts.

"The apposition in reference to the

"It Is one of those accidents that

only hoped that tl.ey would COOtlnOe to
love ca.-h other. He didn't aspect men a
magnificent compliment and he doubted
very much whether be rosily deserved it.
The burden of his rather modest remarks
was the necessity for burying politics end
creeds, for the purification and anrieh?
t. eut of NOW Yoik, which,, Mr. Moss de
cleared la the bear! of the nation.
"Prom this city ko out the Impolies that

They wrk for mutual protection, and
they draw our yOUOg men and young
B/omen down, takmsr them even nut of
public school* They ?orrupt them and
add them to their ranks. Thus they in
crease the army of crime. Good peopl
do not so unite."
Whether they be Republicans. Dem?
crats or Progressives, .\jr. Mona said, th
great duty of all citizens Is to make N<v
York the best place to live in in th?- BrhaJ
world. He ?lescribed the Hisnnsi in whic'
various religious .sects work in harmori
to carry on New York's great charitabl
enterprises, each working and believim
in his own way.
"Why," he asked, "should cllff.rer.ee:
of political faith prevent us from unitlni
for constructive citizenship?" His ajej
was for a "local patriotism." for a 'com

in the interests of the home.
"When the good people of New Yori
?"Ity, animated by one common ImpStsf
set themselves tog?>ther to the ty>k s|
