or tho City Hall, believed Inst nlKht thnt
tlicy were in i nil pel II It would take
the i-lty of New York tit basi ten jcars
to build the lines with its own motley.
In other words, New York is n ncur
the limit of lt ImrrowltiK capacity Ihul
It could tint undertake to build the sub
ways unaided nml finish the Job under
ten rears.
' It would tnk nt ieist ten ears to do
It." said llorotm'h President .McAnetiy
lust nlKht. "Ten years Is a vcty liberal
estimate. They ate member of our
board who believe that It would take
lonutr perhaps fourteen sears or eten
The fact Is, as has been pointed out
by city ollicers, that New York will have
Its hands full to supply the money for
Its sharo In the undertaking as pin
posed under the dual sjstctn Horotiirh
President MeAncnv In his report on the
dual .system last .Mny estimated thnt the
cltv'.s share In subway construction
would amount to $12-1.372,200, of which
S.V.fi4:i,2.10 was to ro Into the Ititcrhor
oukIi system and 0 l,722,!'.MJ Into the
Ilrooklyn Itapld Transit line?. In the
tlrst year the fit) "a borrow Iiik capacity
would tn- $100,00(1,000 for suoway pur
poses, nml that would Involve drawing
upon tin- reserves for general munlclpul
purposes to the extent of $3.772,nOO.
The icmalnlnK $21,372,200 would have
to be made up out of Increases In the
city's borrowlnR capacity in the next
two years.
At present the city's debt limit Is re
cedlni: at the rutu of about $23,000,000 a
j ear. If the city has t,, put in new
pavetn-nts and build docks and con
struct a new ci!c centre -and all of
these things and more the utithorlties
hnte in mind - the amount available for
subway construction would be relative
1 little. Perhaps, a third of the total
amount the city could hot row would be
available for un foi this purpose J
333.0") a y..Ur or less
S i If the total amount tin ii. It. T.
nml the InterboiouKh will put into the
dual system be taken and divided by
the amount the city could ine for new
subwas it Is easy to .see that under
the most favorable terms the city could
no: build tho lines for Itself In many
years. The B. It. T will contribute
about 103. 000,000. Tn.- lnterbornUBhV
share In thu new lines will cost about
$77,000,000. All told the two companies
have arraneed to provide $142,000,O0n.
Now supisislni: thnt New York's real
c-tate shall .ncrease In value fimter
than at pi event and that the averace
for fifteen years will be as nich as
$300,000,000 a year the hnrrowlni; ca
pacity would Increase at the average
rate of 130.000,000. I'tnler the law the
city cannot Isirrow more than 10 per
cent, of the total value of taxable prop,
ertv within its boundaries. .nd sup-pu-!nK
that this $30,000,000 could be
split into such parts as to allow 510,
OOo.unu for stibwnys nnd $20.01)0,000 for
other municipal improvement" It would
he more thnn fourtet n years before the
city could let all the contracts which
will be let in the nest three yenrs tor
.subway bulldlm,- And the fourteen
yt.iis would not beeln until PUB, when
the greater part of the dunl s.tstetn
will be in operation.
"(if cotiri-e." said Mr Mt-Aneny lust
nlcht, "some sudden hlft mltrht como
so that the city' borrowlni; capacity
would lump very much more than $30,
noy.ooo a venr In that ca.se the Joh
could be done In ten years. Hut tlieto
is no present Indication that real t-stutn
will stand It. Already assessed value,
approximate markot values and real
estate owner -would not welcome hlcnrr
I'he real point of th controversy
mer the contracts has been put in this
shape by Public Service Commissioner
lieiifKe V. S. Williams "If we are not
Rulnis to nccep: prltate help tn this
business we enn't have Mibwnys. And
If we aie roIiir to cut down tne lines as
they into been mapped out. which ones
are you roIhk to lop off .lust try to

Atms-v. .Inn. 28,- The fa. t that Gov.
Sulzer fulled lo send a nomination to
the Senate of a successor of William It,
Wlllcox, and thus added one more day
to the period In which he has resisted
the pressure of W It. Heurst, supplied
"t I1"""' -f tnlerctt to-day In the
matter of the Mtibwny contracLs here
The (lovernor has mill two days In
which to act before the LeRlslattire ad
journs on Thursday, which practically
murks the end of the week's session,
but the time has now passed when, lie
can hope to cnmlnce Mr Hearst that
he has done his best.
That there mlRht be no slip In the
plan to keep Mr. Wlllcox In office until
the subway contracts arc slsned, the
Senate l-'lnaniv Committee, which held
ItH rcRular meetlnR for the week to-tlay,
adjourned to meet next Tuesday. Since
the nomination of the Onvcrnor must
be approved by this committee, the ef
fect of this action is to make 'It Inevi
table that Mr. Wlllcox will hold over
until l-'cbruary 3 even If the Governor
.sends In n name to-morrow or next
tl.i). Besides aereelnR not to meet .iRaln
until next week certain members of the
committee ulo announced that business
would compel them to ro to New York
to-morrow or Thursday, thua taking
thoni away from the scene and leaving,
no chance for any chntiRe nf plans.
The best Information here to-nlRht Is
that the tuimo of the successor to Mr.
Wlllcox has not been decided upon, but
that John J. Delaney Is out of tho run
nliiR. rTqually positive Is. the assertion
that (he man named will be a Democrat
and satisfactory to Tammany, while
possibly better known, nnd thus likely to
command Rrcater public approval, than
Is Mr. Dckiney.
Meantlni" the Governor continues to
receive messnRes and emissaries from
Mr. Hearst. He indignantly and cate
gorically denied thnt he had talked over
the telephone last night with Mr.
Hearst, but the records here do not con
firm his .statement His anxiety over
tho affair continues to be noticeable nnd
to show Itself In many ways. Yet so
far, to the surprise of many, ho seems
to be resisting tho Hearst pressure and
permitting thlnRs to follow the course
desired hy the Democratic organization.
The general belief here to-night Is
that he will send a nnme lo the Senate
on Friday, which Is the last day of Jan
unry. On that dny there will bo not
more than half a dozen Senators In
the city, and after the nomination has
been referred to the I'lnnnce Committee
the Senate will adjourn until next wtk.
When It reconvenes it is expected tho
contracts will hnve been signed.
Then the f lovernor will Issue long
explanation, really nddressed to Mr.
Hearst, setting forth his reasons for
non-lnterferenre. This document Is
waited with no small Interest here.
Senator Klton It. Brown, leader of thn
Uepuhllcan minority, made It clear to
dny that the minority would take no
hand In any Hcnrst campaign designed
to force action on the Governor's nomi
nation in advance of the signing of the
contracts. Apparently any such effort
will meet the unanimous or practically
unanimous opposition of the Pennto.
Actually the subway question at Al
bany hax become Interesting rather as
a matter of detnll thnn otherwise, for

It would take, but hi was sure that thn
Bonn! of Kstlmate would not hnve, tho
contracts before It until Thursday at the
earliest, or perhaps later.
Commissioner Mllo It. Mnltble, from
whom the bulk tif tho opposition to the
contracts may be expected, said that there
was no extctatlon of getting through to-

Mr Mnltble went jesterdny morning to
Mr. Wlllcox with his complaint about the
wny In which the work of revising tho
contiaots hns been carried on. He was so
much in earnest In r presenting to Mr
Wlllcox that he felt that he should have
been present at the various conferences
that the story Rot abroad thnt thero had
been n violent dispute between him and
the chnlrman,
It wns explained, however, that Mr
Mnltble was assured that he would have
a chance to present IiIh objections to the
contructs ns they now stand and that
there hud iken no effort on Mr. Wlllrox's
part to push chanRus through behind his
back Mr. Maltble'n c-hnnce will coni"
to-day, and perhnps nlso to-morrow. The
commission will meet In private iess!on
All told there nie about 700 nrlntcd
papes of the contracts to ho scrutinized.
Ilotti i the I nterls.ri.URli company and the
11. rt. T. have received drufts of chaiiRed
clauses. It Is understood that the com
panies have URreed to most of tho subject
matter of the chiinRen and the only juob
able uround for dlsaifeement will tie upon
matters of rhruslnR.
-Mnyor CJaynor early In tho day saw at

represented thn Pennsylvania Itallroad in
tlie early conferences between th city ofll
. nnd the companies, Tliere wns no
word comlnR from the Mayor's otlice ns
to the matters discussed, but It was un
derstood that Mr. C.aynor wanted to know
nbout the progress on the subway con
tractu. If the Public Hervice Commission should
complete Its work on tho contracts In time
for the Hoard of Kstlmate to consider
them at Its meeting to-morrow thero Is a
chance that the contractu might Ret hack
tif the commission for final signature by
Friday, which Is the last day of Mr. Will

this was held to be very slim.
