they dislike to confess that they have be on

Some of the close political friends of Senator
Ford nnd Assembhman Fallows strongly
urged them yesterday to disrupt thetilllanco
with tho Metiopolitan-Tommany Interests nnd
force the light on tho property owners' bill as
It was before Mr. hltney got hold of it. Sena
tor Ford said that he would do whatever his
constituents demanded, as that had bcou his
courso from the first. He was not seeking to
aid any railroad company, but If the peoolo
of the west side insisted that tho Third
Avenue road should be ousted from
tho avenue nnd tho Metropolitan loft undis
turbed, as the only way of winning their light
against a doublo set of trolley tracks, then ho
would try to havo thu Whltnoy-Crokcr bill

inent Hepubllcau Irlendson thn west side that
the alliance with the Metropolitan against the
Third Avenue would nevor hnvo I eon made If
he had not feared that the original bill w as des
tined to be killed
"Wo were led to believe." 6ald Senator Ford,
"that not only Mr Whltnev's compnny and Mr
Lauterbach's company were against the bill,
but the Itepubllcnn organisation ns well We
were told that tho senate would quietly
smother the bill "
"Stand on your old hill," was the advice of
Senator Ford's Hepubllcau friend, "nnd tho
Republican organization won't dare let It be
Senator Ford believes that tho conduct of his
constituents was justified by the peculiar cir-cuui'-iaiices
"They asked for relief," ho sold last night,
"and both railroads laughed at them 'lhey
have never been friendly to tho Third Avenuo
road 'I hoy fought to keep it from putting Its
horse line in Amstrdam avenue ten years ago,
and that 6ult is still pending. The Third Ave
nue road Is ln the nvenue against the people's
wish, and we question Its right to build a trol
ley line It was a question between n
road there, In the middle of tho street,
with Its cars running, and a road which pro
posed to run electric ears in the sides of the
street The property owners tried to brine tho
two roads to an agreement and failed, and they
did this next thing, allied with the old road
against the new. It was their last resort."
Sonator l'ord was vsked If ho did not think
that the Third Avenue road should have tho
option of renting the Metropolitan's tracks
upon terras to be fixed by the courts
"'I hit would bo giving the Third Avenue a
trolley franchise, which we hold it hasn't ac
quired," said benntor Ford.
"Hut if the company was allowed time to
perfect its consents it would have a trolley

don't want it to hnvo Tho people wantthe

" Hut the object of the property owners' light

"The Metropolitan people won't have It,
and such a provision would kill the bill." eaid
Sonator Nathaniel A, Klsberg. who came
down from Albany on 1 hursday night, said
yesterday that the Whltney-Croker bill wat an

demand Senator Llsberg, In his desire
to see a fair settlement of the Amster

the meeting between l'tltm Hoot, coun

meeting was arranged after the Senator hud
talked the matter over with the Governor, and
it was understood that the Governor desired to

said ono of the citizens' lawyers after the meet
ing It Is most unfortunate" mIu Senator Els
berg hist night, " that the people havo tied up
with Mr Whitney and Mr L'roker. Tup Sun's
attitude on the question Is the only fair one.
The amended bill Is an outrage 1 don't know
what the Governor would do with It If it ever
reached him, but I think that ho Is not satis
fied with the bill. I don't think ho wants It
sent to him "
Some of tho lnwersof the west side "steer
ing committee" have sought to show that tho
Metropolitan nimnilment was fair because it
gave both eouilunles tho same show In tho
courts, and in tho Ei envifj lit of Thursday
Simon Sterne, the senior counsel for the prop
erty owners, was quote 1 as saying that thn
courts might order either company out of tho
avenue Mr Stertio vesterdny quashed the
fraudulent nrgument by wrltlne to the J'ott
nnddenv ng the Interview
" The fact undoubtedly Is," -vroto Mr. Sterne,
"thnt that provision of the illl Involvingre
moval from the nvenue and compensation for
such removal touches onlv the tracks to bo re
loc ited, and applies in effect only to tho last
copier on the avenue -tho 1 orty-second Street
(Thltd Vvenuoi load "
Another statement made by the vmstnrdara
nvenue People, who have been duped by the
Metp pol 'an road, is that the Metropolitan's
nmendment doesn't sek to dr.vo the Third
Avenue's hor e line out of tho avenue Senator
lord Is une of thofe who believe that Mr N hlt
neyi Intended to leave his rival theirorlclnal
Tientsin the avenue Hut. as Mr Lnuterbaeh
plainly showed vostorday. tho Intention of Mr.
Whitney h nnn ndment Is to make the Third
Avenue remove evory bit of Its two and a half
miles of track.
"Section 4 of the bill, which Is tho lord
amendment." slid Mr Lnuterbaeh. "states
that the Supreme Court shall have jurisdiction
to llndand il'termlne if it Is 'or the public in
tetest that any railroad tracks, the operation
ot which Is affected bv the first ee"tlon of this
act. shall be entirely n moved from tho avenue,
and not relocated. Tho first section of the act
tales that it shall not be lawful to operate
upon Amsterdam avenue, between Seventy
second strei t and 12fith street, any street sur
face railroad by any motive powerother than
horse power, unless the tracks or rails upon
which said roud I- oim rated are located at leist
twent feet distant from tho nenrost cutbline
of said avenue. The only tracks the ojicration
of which can posslblj be affected by the first
section nf the net, and which a-e. ln fict,
affected thereby, are the tracks of the Third
Avenue Compnny which are now within tho
distance of twenty feet from the curb, llmltm!
hv H'lld section of the act The tracks of the
Metiopolltan lumpany cannot possibly bo
alTei ted by this section, as tliev are now at the
present time more than twenty feet distant
Ironi the neirest eurb
"The lord amendment specifically states
'thnt any rallroid tracks, the operation of
which Is affected by tho first section of this
act, shall 1 o entirely removed from the avenue
and not 1 1 located.' Therefore, the contention
advanced hv senator Ford, that the tracks of
the Third Kvmius Company are not alone
affected by tho first section of the bill Is un
tenable "Senntorlnrd has made the nrgument that
because the ilrst section of tho bill states th it
It shall not be lawful to operate upon Amster
dam avenue any street surfnee railroad upon
the road or tracks ot any street surface rail
load company, by any motive power other
than horse isiwer, that, therefore, the pro
hibition contained in thnt cctU ii Is exclusive
lv aimed at tracks opornted by a powerother

ment, though, sneeillcalli refers to tiny

GRAMMAR BCUOOVS J.EAKY ROOF.
Children Form n Mop Brigade Inside When
It Rnlns-IIenltli Ilonrd Called In.
When Grammar School W was built two
rears ago. at a cost of $1."0.000. the company
which had the contract for the asphalt roof,
designed forn plnground. guaranteed that its
work would last for Ave jenrs llecently laro
holes appeared in tho asphalt, and Isaac B
Sprngue, the principal of tho school, reported
tho matter to Charles 1! J. Snyder, the Chair
man of the Building Committee of tho Board
of Education, asking that the roof bo repaired.
Nothing has vet come of tint report so far as
can be seen. In the meantime every rainy day
tho water runs down through tho ho es in tho
root into tho upper floors of the building. In
the list rainstorm Principal Sprngue had to
remove all the pupils from tho two upper
floors. Finally he was forced to set the chil
dren to work nt sopping up tho water with
sponges and cloths in order 1 1 prevent the
whole building from being ruined
The children told this to their parents when
they reached home and since then a storm has
been brewing. As the result of conferences
among tho parents a protest to the Board ot
Health was handed last night to Dr. Eugene
Monaghau. the Sanitary Superintendent of the
Bronx Dr. Monaghan promised that the re
pairs should be speedily mado.
