Halt n doren lawyers look part In n nurii'd argument before Supreme Court Justice I olinlnn yesterday relating to on frtor' I'.v Selden Bacon, receiver in bank iiiptcy of the United Wireless Telegraph (nmpany, who was appointed In Maine week by United States District .fudge lUIe. to get the assets of the company n,iy fiom rtobert E. Dow ling and Slduoy Harris, who were appointed three weeks dj.i by Justice Cohalan In a stockholders' m-tmn brought here, but without the recfrMry preliminary of making the Attorney General a party. baric K. Llttlelleld and Haul S, Myers ere the lawyers who went to Maine and hsd Selden Bacon, also a New York J hwvei, apiointed receiver in bank Piptcy Roger Koster, counsel for cer tain stockholders in a suit here, charac terised the action as "an effort to throw the company into bankruptcy by the jackals who make their lair In the Federal Building." John Quinn, counsel for the .Ve-v York receivers, said that he sub scribed to Mr. Foster's characterization. Neither Mr. l.ittlefield nor Mr. Myers was present. A petition In bankruptcy here had been thrown out previously because the State court action was then eiiding and ihe Federal court here decided that the State court should have precedence In die matter All the lawyers then repre senting various factions in the case had j npuUted to take no proceedings in any ether court after Justice Cohalan ap-1 minted receiver here, but Lawyers I Myers and l.ittlefield were not parties In the other proceedings. They went tn Maine representing creditors and got Mr Bacon appointed receiver in bank ruptcy of the Maine corporation, which j owns all the slock. The New York cor- I poration operates the business. Shortly after Mr Bacon was appointed he wrote to the New York receivers de manding possession of nil the asset nnd .is Mr Quinn said, Mr Becon claimed that under a recent act of Congress his powers are "as wide as the continent And as high as the sky." Mr Bacon tnld Justice Cohalan later that he said lu powers were "as wide as the United States" In his letters to the receivers Mr Bacon said that their appointment xas invalid anyhow because the Attorney-General had not been made a party to the proceeding here and that they could not hold the assets. Mr. Bacon also served an order, returnable in the Federal court here, to show cause why h should not be made ancillary receiver here which would entitle him to take posses sion of the assets in this State The New York receivers at once quit paying salaries to wireless operators, and aa a result of It, Mr. Foster said, many curators have been sleeping in Battery Park the last few nights. The local re ceivers de facto also got an order palling all parties interested to appear yesterday before Justice Lehman, now sitting In Part 1.. Special Term, and show causo why a nunc pro tuno order should not be Mgned making the Attorney-General a party In order to cure the defect in the original appointment of tile receivers. They also asked permission to appear in the Federal court tooppose Mr. Bacon 'a appointment as ancillary receiver. Mr. Bacon and all the lawyers who had opposed the appointment of the receivers nnmed by Justice Cohalan urged Justice Iehman to adjourn the case because the papers had leon served on them just before they went to court. Counsel for the receivers insisted on an immediate hearing, saying that delay would facili tate efforts to break up the company and that important contracts are leLng held up. one of which is the equipment of tho battleship which is now waiting hero to take the naval reserves on a cruise. The rfurt refused an adjournment and sent the case to Justice Cohalan, who heard argument at once. After tho Maine bankruptcy proceed ings had been characterized by Mr. Foster and Mr. Quinn the latter said: "Where is Mr. Bacon? 1 object to his running away " Just then Mr. Bacon was seen when Justice Ihman refused an adjourn ment and Mr. Quinn called him in. Mr. Quinn then repeated that Mr. Bacon's appointment was "the wanton and de structive act of a foreign court." Ho Mid that tho statement of the lawyer" who had Mr. Bacon appointed that the company is insolvent is untrue, because the Msets are 1700,000 and the only in debtedness la a judgment of $65,000. He Mid that the Marconi company and other business rivals would benefit if the United Wlre!fs is put out of business, and while he didn't want to say that tho lawyers Interested in It were acting for the rivals, it looked that way to him. Mr Quinn also asked Justice Cohalan Inquire into Mr Bacon's efforts to induce the Utornoy-fieneral to take active steps because, he had not been made a party to the proceedings. He said that at tho argument before Justioa Lehman for a delay jir Bacon went up to Deputy Attorney-General Beyer, who was in "urt and ordered him to call at the Attorney-General's office and see if he sn t directed to ask for an adjourn ment One of th men Mr Bacon spoke ' m thn Attorney-General's office, said "f Qumn, was his cousin, Deputy Attor n"v ffnneral Henry Holden Bacon, This is getting interesting," said Insure Cohalan, and he called on Deputy vnrny.(lenoral Beyer fora statement. M' Heyer said that ho had inspected 'ft" pipers only casually, but he thought ne .,rder asked for ought to bo granted. i i " " no sympathy with persons who " e into court and try to have an order iiisn ,,,, technical grounds," ho said. Ji H II v- Prentice, who had opposed the prv'i. nieiii of ihe receivers here, Haid 'ha- ' Foster had tried to stop the croi nefimga before Judge Hale In Maine "v 'bng him a telegram asking for i". in., he could appear, and that this "'F'l" so angered Judge Hale that he oppciu. ed a receiver at once. He said that because of the way the New York State receivers have been running the company they will have it bankrupt anyhow In a short time. Justice Cohalan said he would sign the order asked for by the local receivers. Out of court -Mr Bacon said that he did talk with his cousin in the Attorney General's office and they both agreed that because of tho relationship between them It would lie better for Deputy Attorney General Bacon to have nothing to do with tho proceedings, police to see a not r ice.

At the same time, the indepen dent dealers allege, the ice trust refused lo furnish them with ice according lo their contracts with the trust, saying that there was nil ice shortage. District Attorney Whitman said yes terday that he thought if Ihe ice trust had made contracts with independent dealers to supply them with ice at a stipu lated rate and then refused to abide by the contracts, Htating that t'.iere was a shortage of ice, and it could bo proved thai they had ice in their possession nt the time, the criminal law had been vio lated.

But several more official words that had liecn wired lo tho Navy Department at Washington came back ond set tho navy yard gossips talking about Young and recalling the suicide of Lieut. Ozhurn or Ihe gunboat Tacoma, who shot himself at the yard nearly two weeks ago while awaiting court-martial trial for being altsent without leave. Ensign Young got shore leave two weeks ago and overstayed It five days. When he reappeared he was placed under ar rest by his captain, Lieut .-Commander Joel It. V. Priugle. He was to stay aboard the Perkins until called before the court-martial that was to hear his case at 10 o'clock yesterday morning. He was not confined to his quarters, but had the run of the deck and was on his honor not to leave tho vessel. The Perkins was In dry dock nt the time, below the reach of whatever breeees may havo found their way through the heat. Several times tho temperature roso to lOfi; the little steel deatroyer was anything but comfortable. Even when she was removed from the dry dock nnd moored at the end of the Horn, the long pier that crooks aliout the basin like a protectingafm.confinementaboard her was not just tho sort of fun the young Annapolis graduate would have chosen In the hot spell.

In the morning ho was missing. Lieut. -Commander Prln gle found the letter in which Young wrote that he purposed drowning himself. On the bunk beside the letter was a revolver with one cartridge dented as if tt had missed fire when the trigger was pulled Lieut .-Commander Pringle took the let' ter to Admiral Leutze, commandant of tho yard. The Admiral sent a despatch to Washington and called for detectivea from the Brooklyn bureau. It was said at tho yard yesterday that neither Lieut. Commander Pringle nor the Admiral believed that Young had killed Himself or that he Intended to. The com rades of the ensign nboord the Prrkins held the same view They said. "He's skipped." nnd added that they thought he would be back to take his medicine when he had been ashore long enough to talk with his parents The navy yard basin has not been dragged Tho police also are inclined to believe that oung is alive. When Lieut -Commander Pringle went ashore vesterday afternoon ho left Lieut Grady, chief engineer, in command of the Perkins, nnd told htm not to t.iik aooui Young. Lieut . Grady was thercforemum. but there were others who thought they knew why Young had gone away The ensign was transferred last winter from the cruiser North Carolina to the Perkins and presently became chief en cineer of the torpedo. boat destroyer He liked the job and the crow liked him. but before long Lieut Grady was transferred to tho Perkins from the Dixie and was made chief engineer by Lieut -Com mander Pringle.

In augurated as Governor of Georgia ten days ago, was elected to the United States Senato to-day by an overwhelming ma jority. Gov Smith received 155 votes against CO cast for his opponents. the election of Gov. Smith to fill the four year unexpired term of the late Senator A, H. Clay complicates the politi cal situation In Georgia. If Gov. Smith accepts the position as Senator tt leaves a vacancy in the Gubernatorial office and ex-Oov Joseph M, Brown has practically announced that he will again offer for the position of Governor, for which he was recently defeatod by Gov Smith. Should ox-Oov. Brown announce, he will be opposed by friends of Hoke Smith ond the Gubernatorial primary will be a lively content. Gov. Smith has not yet decided whether he will accept the Sena torship. It Is rumored to-night that he may thank the General Assembly for the honor conferred upon him and decline rather than see the State thrown into a turmoil over the Governorship. The imprefslnn is, however, that Gov.

Aitt. $75,000,000 FROM INTERBORO IF CITY WILL LET IT EARS 3 PER CEST. ABOVE. CHAROES. Net It Iow says There Can He No Ideal Suti. way System mm the Interborotom. pany lft tint-New Offer It l.lkel) to He Called For hy To-morrow. Ex-Mayor Soth Iow, who has been working to bring about an agreement between tho city nnd the Interborough company for'new subways, said last night that he was under the Impression that nn agreement could be mnde on these terms: That the Intorborough company shall agree to furnish $76,000,000 of new capital. more or less, for the construction and equipment of that part of the McAneoy plan assigned to it if the city In any way that may bo found logal will permit It to earn 3 er cent, above Interest and amortization charges on Its old and new private capital. By entering Into the proposed rela tions with both the rapid transit oom panles," Mr. Ijow continued, 'tho city becomes absolute master of the rapid transit system of the city nnd Its develop ment. If the Intorborough company re mains outside of the present development tt is impossible for the city to make an Ideal system of rapid transit, no matter how much it may spend in rapid transit development;. Tho city Is Justified nlso in remembers ing that tho rapid transit system con trolled by the Interborough company under Its leases belongs to the city Itself, and it is In every way good judgment when the city is spending money for rapid transit development to spend it in such a way as to add to the value of it own property nnd not to detract there from. These nre some of the advantage! which the city will secure by the arrange ment with the Interborough company. Let 11s now look at the other side of th picture. "Probably every one will admit that tho advantages for the city, which I have pointed out, are real. If any one at all questions the arrangement It will be upon the ground that the allowance to the Interborough company is too Urge. Under the arrangement suggested that allowance is to be three per cent, above interest and amortization charges on the total amount of private capital involved in the enterprise represented by bonds, which it is estimated will be about $125,-000,000-, that is to say, the Interborough company will receive. $3,750,000 a year in excess of its interest mid amortization charges. "I should. hav been glad, as every ons else would bo glad. If it had been possible to make the arrangement with the Inter through company on more favorable teims, but I do not hesitate to say that I think tho terms agreed ukiii are fair; and it is altogether in the city's interest to havo agreed to them. The Inter Imrough's present stock capital i J'JJ, 000,000 and its investment In the subway, covered by bonds, is about $lS,oxi,Ot0 ubove this capital Upon this stock last year it earned over $t,0(io,ono after providing for the amortization 011 lis bonds. "Under the arrangement proposed the Interborough company will furnish $i5,utKi,0"0 of new capital for construct-on and operation: will put in at su.noii.no') the Steinway tunnel, which it It 5, iKo.tKKi, and will twelve for operating the enlarged system S:i,75u,wj 11 year instead of $1,000,0011. which il Ls ciming tu-iUy for oiKjnillng the smaller system.

This of course is covered by the amortization, so-called, of tho bonds, "But thn Hjint to be emphasized Is that tho stockholders have absolutely no way of receiving a return for the labor and risks attending the operation of the road except from this allowance of $3,750,000, which Is .1 per cent, hi excess of the cost of amortization on thn privato capital involved." Mr Low maintained that the city could not obtain a comprehensive and unified system of rapid transit development without the cooperation of the Inter borough. The great defeot of t he original rapid transit contract, ho said, was in its failure to provide a mothod by whioh additions to the system could be made from tlmo to time as desired by the city "The absence of such n provision," he said, "has resulted in thn absolute ces sation of rapid transit development for nix or seven years. The arrangement now proK)ni'd with both the rapid transit companies contains such a provision, so that by this agreement with tho In terborough Rapid Transit Company the city will not only get tho Immediate re suit at which it aims but also it will avoid all danger of the cessation of rapid transit development in tho future." It Is not likely that tho subway puzzle will le solved at to-day's meeting of tht Board uf Estimate. Whl le Borough Prctl.
