CITY IS 1'TJOKD The Hoard of K-dlmata opened yes terday nerlc of hearings on the pro posed plan of Improvement for the West Nble by listening In those, who oppose, certain feature of tho nirrccmont ns It has been tentatively arranccd by th board's committee on port and terminal facilities and the New York Central nail road Company. Most of the time yester day was devoted to tho objections of a number of civic orKanlintlons that have taken up the study of this particular problem. Argument of counsel centred chiefly about tho ucrecnicnt as It affects the proposed enlarged frclRht yard between .i3 and 133 streets, nnd the plans for the railroad south of Klfty-nlnth street. It was contended with respect to these feature of the plan that the city had not cone far enough, becauso no arrange ment had been made for the roofing over of the entire freight yard and the loca tion of a park thereon and also because thr was no guarantee that the New York llertral. under the present ar rangement, would not eventually secuie an unbreakable monopoly of the facili ties for freight distribution In the com mercial section of the West Side. Outlines Objections. Miles St. Dawson, Stanley R, Isaacs and Julius Henry Cohen appeared In be h.ilf of the civic organizations that have acted together In studying the West tilde ultuatlon for the tast three years. The oiganlzatlons represented Include the f'lty Club. Citizen' t'nlon Women's Municipal League, Independent Club of the Upper West Mile. Washington Heights Tax. payers Association, Hudson Oulld and Greenwich Settlement. Outlining the position to be taken In detailed argument by his associates. Sir. Pawson said that the first objection to the plan was that It was not In harmony with chapter "77 of the laws of 1911, under which the West Side Improvement vins authorized, and he Instanced the fact that, while tho law provided for a tunnel under the llatleni ship canal, the piopoed agreqmcnt provided for a rail road bridge. He was Informed by Comp troller Prcndergast that the legal fea tures of the plan had been thoroughly Investigated and that the committee was convinced that the law referred to rals.ee! no obstacles to the arrangement. Mr. Dawson said the ohjectlon to tho agreement In the matter of the freight ard at 135th street wa that no pro vision ivas made for covering the entire freight yard. He thought the contract, jet to be made with the railroad, should make entirely clear the city's right to roof over and cover nil f the tracks, so that the West Side would not be con fronted with a metal roofing on which there was no earth. He said the agree ment should go further than that and bind tbe cltv to cover the traikt. and to l'icato on this great roof a park or play giound. He said that It wa not Im possible to operate a frelsht yard under ground and that unless a covered freight xarrt were stipulated there, would be no assurance against a nuisance that might bo permanent. Wnnln Tlili-k CnverlnR of Knrth. As for the general scheme of cmering the main lino tracks of the railroad, ho silil that the contour of the covering should be considered. Ho thought that the structure should carry at least four aid one half ffet of earth and that it should be of such strength when llrst put In that tbe railroad could at no future time raise the objection to an adequate depth or earth that the strel substructure would not hear the addi tional weight. Coming to the stretch below Thirtieth st.eet Jlr. I (aw son said that reiious consideration should be given to the question of interference with a possible underground sxstem of freight distribu tion, lie pointed out that tho purchase by the lullroad of a new right of w.iv, with its adjoining waiohnucs, might forte other railroads cither to cross over the Central's tracks or to go under neath them, and he thoiiR'it their right to do this should be conserved, as otherwise thcte might be no fnlght distribution north or Canal street that was not monopolized by th I'enttal, He char acterized tills Improvement aH only a part of a general scheme of Increasing terminal facilities n ,rtt yr ,.Uy 11Md he thought the railroad rnnipanv ought to be willing lo .Meld something toward that end. In his opinion the rlaht of other roads to live the tracks should he delhiltely ct forth in the contract. Still another suggestion wan that the agreement did not go far enough In pin. vldlng tor passengfr traffic down tbe West Side. lie thought sue, provision tor pa-senger service should be made even down to Can.il street. Thinks Oiiitnainii Mriniee, Stanley J. Isaacs, elaborating the ar gument of Mr. Dawson, said that he thought It stiaiige that no provision had been made for making a park above the covered tracks or the flight yard at Until street while such provision for park treatment had htcu niadu else where along the hue. Comptroller I'rendergast said that this was because there was now no pari: at that point and because the location of ono there was a matter for th city to decide llldcpendciitlv or tile present ngieenient with the railroad Mr. Isaacs declaied that while the rommltlcn'H report made it appear that the coeiiug of the nuilii tracks would screen the freight yard, audi was not the case, because only the covering of the enllin yard would sum- that section fioni tho blight of a railroad yard. e in god thai no agreement be made that left out such a coveilng. Mr. Cohen argued that the stc! sub structure which Is in carry the onver , lug of earth over the trackii should bo, made lo harmonize, with the topograph leal fealuics at nn glen point. In other words that the substructure should not be unlfoiin. but should he Increased In strength at those points where It appeared likely that a greater depth of earth, either for paik purposes or merelv for the sake of properly rounding nut tho covering, would be required, He thought that at some points the sub. Htructuro should be Htrotur ennneh to carry six or seven reel of earth." In tho matter of the Central's: nionop Oly, suggested that while the plans show n marginal way rlwrward of tho Central's tracks, the railroad owns two or threo pieces of properly that would effectually block a marginal way, Seen Hunger of Monopoly, He urged that tho railroad be forced to agree to sell these Interfering prop, crlles lo th" city. Ho saw nolhlng In tho plans, he said, to Indicate that provision had been made for trackage for other mads south of Klfty-nlnlh utreet, and ho said ho feared the city would some day wake up In Hie fact that a monopoly had been created.

At no point, she Bald, do the plans piovidc for more than three fei t of earth on this covering. She. thought that neither trees nor shrubs could thilve In that depth of oll. She unci also that the proposed embankment wistwaul of these tracks would be so steep that trees could not be planted. She deilin ed from these facts that the com tnlttf" had merely made the best of a bad situation by provldinK for unnces saij i ild grounds atop tho railroad cover ing. The Comptioller said that the play grounds wcie. a suggestion of the Park Department and not of tho committee.

Myron Cameron, division chief nf the Adlroudacks, who was sent to Shelter Island last Salutday by Commissioner Pratt to make arrangements for a great battue, and who suddenly tecelved or ders from the Commissioner that the deer must be spared, will be In charge of the meiclfiil drive. He will have tvventy.nve game wardens fiom the Adliondarks and tho Catskllls as help ers. "I have covered Shelter Island thor oughly slnrn last Thursday," said Chief Cameron yesterday In tho Hotel Wyan dank, tlreenport. "I find that the pe culiarities of the Island It Is very li regular In outline, with many points Jutting nut to the bajs and narrow necks of land connecting these points with the mainland of the Island give ux a chance at least to build a big corral on Slashonmck Point Into which the deer may he driven, To nnllil Fannel Pointed Corrnl, "Sly plan Is to build a corral of wire, triangular shaped, with the apex, open like a funnel, pointing landward and more or less disguised by trees and brush, and the base resting on the sea, 'leaders' of timber, a fence ten feet high, and too high for the deer to Jump, will lead to the opening, The whole scheme will bs to make th deer think, when they ate Iovvly driven toward Slashomack Point, that they are en terlng a close wooded refuge. "I have counted about loo der al ready, but 1 know thete must be more. Most of them are on the Nichols estate In tlie southern part of the island, and tliat will make It easy for us to drive them to Mashomark Point. To-day a man telephoned me from the Nichols place that lie had Just s-en twenty-one deer In a bunch "Vou wonder maybe how so many deer can find protection and hiding in such a small Island. There Is more room than one would think. The Nich ols estate alone contains fi.onn acre? and iikki nf t is t.ttlicr heavilc wooded.

QHde Honbon bop For Men There is no time of the year when a man appreciates as clearly the significance of good clothes, as he does in the Spring. We are all influenced by our environment; and when the trees put on new green leaves and the gardens glow. with flowers, he is an odd man who doesn't feel the influence of it all, and turn his thoughts to new clothes. It is one thing to desire good clothes. It i9 quite another thing to get them.
