EXTENSION TO FLUSHING
btaten Island Tube Promised:
Central Brooklyn to Get.
The Transit Commission made pub!ic
yesterday details of its program
for new subway construction, involving
an outlay of approximately $218,- (
| 000,000 for construction and an additional
$100,000,000 for equipment of
the new lines, including rolling stock, .
power houses and signalling devices.
In the advancement of the city's
rapid transit facilities these plans
mark the most important step taken
! since the signing of the dual cont
tracts in 1013. The additional lines ;
projected touch directly the transpor- 1
tation problem of every borough, and. v
whe.i completed, will girdle them all j j
with subway lines. They will add to g
present resources 32.55 miles of new ^
subways, with 84.20 miles of trackage. p
i Since the signing of the dual con- j .
: tracts nine years ago. although these j ^
practically doubled the city's rapid
' transit facilities, the traffic demand, due
' to the city's growth, already has more
than doubled. Hence the commission,
in describing its extensive program, v
emphasizes the vital importance of be- 0
ginning as soon as possible actual work a
upon each of the new routes. To have '
kept pace even approximately with ihv 1
demand, it is pointed out, a compre- a
hensive new construction program j.
should have been begun five years ago. j
Five Months of Preliminaries.
Approval of routes by the city S
ininiatm t inn and its cooncration in V
| financing the vast project are cssen- j
I tlal. Public hearings must be held be- |
| fore the actual letting of contracts mav
| proceed. These preliminaries probably
will consume at least from five to s'v
months and it will require years after
i approval before operation can be begun.
An accurate outline of the seven
' major features of the construction pvoI
gram was presented last Sunday by
[ The Xkw York Herald. As Indicated
then, features of especial interest and
Importance in Manhattan Include s 1
moving sidewalk under Forty-second 0

river to river, and a west side trunk I '
line the entire length of the island, I

The last named route, which Is to be ; t

It is to be an eight track road, operat- r

md turning her attention to the Do- 1

beard In the lobbies of the House of ]
'amnions to-day following a speech <
ay the Right Hon. Stanley Baldwin, j
president of the Board of Trade. 1
Many Government officials believe
that If Mr. Lloyd George fails to line
jp Europe, the country's only course
trill be something along the lines of
the American pollry?to keep free as
much ps possible.
Mr. Baldwin said: "Tie restora:ion
of Europe is Vital if there is to
r?e a rapid resumption of trade, but if
'he process is delayed, Britain must
nake up for it by intensified dcvelop nent
of her own empire.''
Jl is believed Mr. Baldwin was hitting
it America when lie said: "One curilue
result of the war is the increased
leslro of countries to be self-contained
ndustrtally. This has led to an Increase
n tariffs in many parts of the world i
fact to be viewed with apprehension,
riiere lias also been an attempted ills

against our shipping. I hope the
iominions will take counsel together be'nre
it in tr?n lute nn Rrltsln enn nr?
ient h united front arrainst any attempt ;
o damage her shipping."
Mr. Baldwin said one should avoid
iptlmism on the one hand and pessimism i
an the other. He said an examination
if trade conditions led one to believe
hat the human race failed to profit by
lie accumulated experience of many
mines through which the world had
Every generation had to buy Its own
utperlenre. lie declared, adding that the
leople of the world were now learning
detnentary economics at an awful cost,
ind he could only' hope that the experience
through which Great Britain was
tow going might burn into the minds
if the generations and so survive for
:he benefit of others, should the counry
ever have them to go through again
He said there was no reason why
'Jreat Britain ahould not resume trade ,
slth the United States, South America, j
Spain and Scandinavia, and that there
were some signs of improvement.
