SUBWAY AIR GOOD; ! GRATINGS FAVORED Engineers Report on Ventila tion Flans Says Bacteria Keep Out of Tnbe. FANS TO PLAY A PART A rtjeort ls.ias.lin Ota continuant of taewftlk gratlnf a the nioit afflclent Ml aotraorniasj mathorl of ventilating the ptaaant nbnn and tnoM now be lnar oorwtrooUd ni made to the PuDUc Service Oonnntaalon yesterday toy the conaultrns; antfnaers of the Interborounh Rapid T remit Company and the New Tork Munrotjxtf Railway Corporation. who, with a W. Murdock aa the repre sanUttv of Alfred Craven, chief en Vtaear of the commtalon, have had the matter radar consideration alnce lart Jttrm, la a printed pamphlet of twelve panes the tocerd goes trrto the whole matter of ubway ventilation from the Invention- Oca cf the eutojeet made during the first of aviation down to recent eiprl Two points are disposed of Im- imiiltasalr The first la that numerous teata prove that the air in the aubwaya a hows a eilcM Increase in the percent f esrtxmJo add taa over what it waa hi Oie first yearn of operation. Thle ia aaid to be due to Inoreaaed troflta, and the percentage atiU falls below the normal percentage In office hntlrtinn. Of bacteria the report naya "Wi have submitted many samples of Sir. both in the mibway ana the street, to almtlar bacterlolojclcat examination. Whllt tndhrldual testa ehowed. naturally. qoisaMsrsM variation, averaging all the teata that we have made we have found QiaC thera were 219 bacteria In the Fub--v air and !B5 In the street nlr per cubta Truster, and Uiat the bacteria In thr eubar&y atr were ncrunlly leu man tnoe In the air In the atreeti-. probably due to the fact that the drier air of the subway la not conducive to bacterioioitic.u nre. aearrtoB of Hot Atr. "These mrttrea simply confirm the sen eatkma of those ufrtn the subway, that it la only at tlmea, when the air In the street la hot. that the temperature con ditions in the eubwny are disagreeable. There Is no cause for complaint of either the chemical or bacterlolofrtcal condition of tho air at any time of the year." The engineers say that they have enre fully considered suggestions nmdo for the ventilation of the aubTrays. The first of theso wns that the air be chemically treated. Thla suggestion Is disposed of by the proof that the trouble tvlth tho iihwav air la not Its Impurity but Its heat, and that the conditions call for no chemical treatment. Tne suKnesuon mai currents of air in the subway beacon trolled by the use of revolving doors at mibway entranoea Is declared to be Im practical and dangeroue because of the l.trgp crowds.. A third suggestion waa that openings for ventilation In places other than the sidewalk be made, especially that chim neys In bufldlnga be used for forced draft exhaust. It la found by the board that to introduce forced draft ventlln llon In the section of the subwny between Brooklyn Bridge and Ninety-sixth etreet would coat $4,000,000. and that the operation of such a ayatem would entail, with the Installation, a total cap italized cost or 114.000,000, or about 12.000,000 a mile of four track subway. Numerous physical and engineering ob jections to the chimney suggestion are set forth In the report. The plan of cooling subway air by re frigeration, which admittedly goes to the root of the problem. Is rejected be cause of the practical difficulties to be overcome and the cost. Coming to the present ayatem of side walk gratings the board points out that a typical subwny sidewalk grating discharged air at much less velocity and at a much lower temperature than do many of the sidewalk gratings owned by persona who haw raised objections to thle scheme of ventilation for the sub ways. Fntia for Rmersrency Use. Tha final conclusions reached are: "That In the opinion of your commit tee tne natural method of ventilation by the piston action of trains, with Intake and discharge openings of large area, and supplemented by fans for emergency use. Is the most effective method which can be applld at prnctlwiblo cost, and providee the maximum degree of safety against unforeseen effects of Interruption of traffic due to accident . "That In subways constructed with more or less continuous grating open ings along the length of the structure, the natural method of ventilation Is tule filiate without auxiliary mechanical in Ktallatton. That In the application of this natural method thii locution of tho Kratlnga required should bn clowly stud ied, in order to minimize their occupa tion of sllewnllc area at any point, and that when care hus been exercised In this matter such gratings are less ob jectionable than any practicable method of ventilation which would secure for tha public using the subways equal safety and comfort. "Finally, the recommendation of our committee, therefore, Is that tho plans adopted by your commission and now under construction In tho subways of the dual system be adhered to, with such modifications In detail as may be sug gested by further consideration of op erating conditions and necessities." The members of the bonrd were Will iam Barclay Parsons, S. F. U Dcyo, J, Vlpond Davtes and Lewis II. Htlllwcll, The position taken by these engineers Is tha same as that tAkrn by Chief En gineer Craven of the commission pre vious to the demand for a more thor ough Investigation of the subject.

ORGANIZE TO LIFT WATER POWER BAN Manufacturers Promise in Re turn to Supply All Nitro gen Needed for War. BIG COMPANIES IN MOVE Manufacturers of hydro-electrio ma chinery, representing an Investment of at least 1200,000,000 and employing SO, 000 workmen, are perfecting an or ganisation which will urge upon Con gress the lifting of the oan against the development of the nation's water power Imposed In 1913. Primarily they are to urge the passage of the Shields bill, which has already passed the Senate, and of the Ferris bill, which has passed the House, whereby the Secretaries of War and Interior re spectively may resumo tho granting of permits of franchises for the use of the water power In navigable streams or upon the public domain. They are not committed to these measures, however, declaring that they will favor anything that will bring about the resumption of an Important Industry In return the manufacturers promise to make provision that will enable the united .States to produce all tho nitrogen It might need for any war out of the air. Although many of the manufacturers Intere.sted now aro prospering more than ever before In their history. It Is because of the European war, which cannot last forever. Many of them have greatly In creased tho capacity of their plants and multiplied the number of men employed, but they know that soon there will be no contracts for tho plants nor work for the men from tho source at present most profitable to them ; therefore they nre looking to the future. Organisation KnTrcted. Preliminary organization of the aso clatlon was cfroti-d yesterday at the ofllce of the I. 1. Morris Company, a sub sidiary of the Cramps Shipyard Com pany, at 100 Uroadway. Present were rep restntatlves of between thirty and forty companies, through whom wont came that between S0O and 600 more coin panics will Join the movement. Among those present yesterday were representatives of the Allls-Ohalmers Manufacturing Company of Milwaukee, American Rolling Mill Company of Mans field, Ohio; American Smelting and lie fining Company, Anaconda Copper Com pany, Archbold-Hrady Company, Syra cuse ; Buffalo Foundry and Machine Com pany, tlould Manufacturing Com pnny of fleneca Falls, James Leffel Co., Springfield, Ohio; Locke Insulator Manufacturing Company, Victor, N.

"The purpose of this association Is to provide for the future and to permit a great Industry to resume work." said Mr. Hand after tho meeting. "It is not a propanajidi In favor of any man, men or associations who may wunt to utilize tho potential water power of tills coun try. This association does not cure who may una the water power nor what re strictions the Oovernment nnd the States may placo upon Its use It only wants something done nnd work resumed In an Industry which has been paralyzed for nearly three years." Mr. Hand went on to explain that up t IMS tho rapid development of hydro electricity had created the Industry, which directly employed between 40,000 and iO.OUO men, but 1ti reality affected more than iOo.OOO workmen, for them wcro cono-rnrd tho Iron and steel Industries, tho cement men, the dam builders, the hydraulic machinery men, the tower builders, eb-rtrle transmission men and a host of other.

A rppn-sentutlve cf the Department nf the Interior called on us and asked us the cause for our depres.slon and we told him frankly The result was that the Administration at Washington saw that we could sive coil nnd forests by de veloplng tile water power, which can never be iiqed up, and came mound to our side.

Tift av aiTTTlC f I'cV JiALirV Vt oil II 8 aft The congestion of export freight on the trunk line, railroads running Into New Tork has nsumed such propor tions, according to shippers, that It Is not possible to count on getting carload lots at any dellnlto tlmo to connect with outgoing steamships. Tho samo condi tion exists at other Atlantic ports. Thousands of dollars worth of export goods. Including munitions of war, steel rails, machinery and automobiles aro tied up. it Is said that there Is hardly a big siding or storage yard between Chi cago and this city that la not crowded with delayed freight. Railroad officials say that the scarcity of ocean vessels Is tho real cause for the present congestion. At Savannah an embargo has been pluced on alt shipments to Philadelphia with the exception of perishable freight. Tho congestion of freight of tho Mer chants and Miners Transportation Com pany, Philadelphia district. Is the rea son for the embargo. Shipments al ready In the hands of the company will be delivered without regard to order. The White Star Steamship Company, It was said yesterday, will move Its ves sels in the future practically In ac cordance with tho wishes of tho British Government, which has asked that the fleet be used chiefly for munitions and grain. It was denied at the offices of the company yesterday that the action of the line in suspending passenger sail ings during thw present month was the result of action on the part of the British Admiralty. The suspending of sailing. It was explained, USSs to avoid the necessity of having set times for sailing and to facilitate the company In Its handling of freight. The pas senger trade pays little. It was said, and a great gain Is obtained If the ships can sail without delay when they arc loaded. Circulars are out at present announc ing pHssnngor sailings after April I. Officers of the company say that there will be no chnngo In the plans outlined In the circulars. MINERS SET FORTH DEMANDS. lucreaaed Hrnla line Iteaaon They Want More W get.

DUE TO HIGH SEA RATES Announcement was made here yester day of the arrival In Philadelphia of fifty carloads of raw Hawaiian cane sugar shipped by the American-Hawaiian Steamship Company from Han Fran cliico. This Is the first shipment of the company brought about by tha great advances In ocean freight rates, which make It more profitable to send sugar across the continent by rail than to use ships for the long voyage to the Atlan tic. It Is the first trnlnload of Hawaiian sugar ever to make the transcontinental luiirney 4 , After the closing of the Panama Canal the American-Hawaiian company, which ' Is under contract for the delivery of a Inrge amount of sugar In Philadelphia, decided on transcontinental shipment. The company can now fulfil Ita contract. using to steamships between Hawaii and San Francisco. It Is estimated that from twelve to fifteen vessels would be required to get the sugar to tha Atlantic by way of the Strait of Magellan. The ships released for other service will leld at the prevailing charter ratea enough to enable the company to meet easily the railroad charges. The Ohloan. which born the first ship ment under the new plan, left Honolulu on February 10. As the train reached Philadelphia on Wednesday, the Journey took twenty-seven days. Thla Is some what less thrui Is counted on by the Panama Canal route, where twenty-six days and the additional time for dis charging of the cargo are usually re quired. The sugar tmln made th trip across the continent In the very fast time for non-perishable freight of four teen days. It Is said that the 21,000 tons of sugar 1ti the fifty cars made the largest single transcontinental shipment of any one commodity every handled. The shipments will be continued regu larly until the reopening of the Panama Canal. Within a short time the two sugar carrying ships between Honolulu and San lVanclsco will be the only vessels of the American-Hawaiian fleet of twenty-eight to be operated on regular lines. Two ships have been sold. The others will be used In reaping the great harvest offered In the high freight rates duo to the pressure for vessels owing to the war. The Itickenbach .Steamship Company Is In a position similar to that of the American-Hawaiian Line, naving re cently withdrawn 1U Ileet from Panama trade. tho RAILROAD EARNINGS.

ACTION EXPECTED TO-DAY It waa made known yesterday through the publication of the calendar for the Board of Estimate's meeting to-day that the Court House Board has modified Its original plans of a new County Court House and will submit to-day a plan calling for an expenditure less by 12, 600,000 than waa asked for when the matter was first discussed. For several weeks conferences of those representing the board and the city ofil- claln have been held with the view of finding some way out of the difficulty "' wnicn tne prospect or building a new court house at a ilme when the city's finances sre badly strained has projected the Mttchel administration. The proposal to abandon the project waa quickly rejected because of the large amounts invested In real estate and the meagreness of the chance of getting back anything like what was paid ror the site. To mark time and do nothing while holding the land was equally dis advantageous because of the heaviness or the carrying charges. A critical study of the plans made by C.uy Lowell raised the possibility of so modifying them as to cut the price ma terially without altering essentially the new building. A communication to the Hoard of Kstlmate on Tuesday last Indi cated that the Court House Hoard thought It unwise to proceed with tho building as originally planned, and stated that the suggested modifications would reduce the cost from about $10,000,0hi to $7.r.00,000. while the modifications have not been made public. It is understood that they Involve the elimination of certain deco rative features and other Interior speci fications to which objections have leen raised on the ground of extravagance The lionrd of F.stlmate will be asked to-day to approve the modified plans and specifications and to authorlie the Issue of $7,100,000 of corporate stock to meet the cost of the new building. Complete plans will be filed with the board anil the whole matter will be referred to the Corporate Stock Iludget Committee for detailed consideration. It Is expected that In the event of no bids hs low as t7.S00.0O0 am received, provision will have been made for a re consideration. PUBLIC UTTIITIES. The lener.i!
