REBUILDING THE GRAND CENTRAL Magnificent Structure to Rise on the Forty-second Street Site. CONSISTS OF THREE PARTS Digging Underground for Tiers of Tracks the Principal Trouhle. After more than three years' work, little of . which has been apparent to the public, the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad will, early this month, begin its final sleeps toward one of the most perfect stations and elab orate systems of terminal facilities In the world. Although so many years have pass ed without any appreciable change in conditions at the Grand Central Sta tion, except the switching of suburban traffic to the old Grand Central Palace for a temporary terminal, .most of the hardest work has been accomplished. From now on the work will be to build a new station, prepare for three layers of tracks, surface, first depth and second depth, and arrange for the complete electrification of the rail road. In all of these plans the New York, New Haven and Hartford rail road is a silent partner. The enor mous amount of $70,000,000 will have been expended before the work is com plete. While the Improvements have beent under way the Central has found it self forced - to solve the problem of taking cars of 1,027 movements of trains every twenty-four hours and to keep the trains on schedule time. Tills, so far, with a few unavoidable exceptions, has been accomplished. It has been so- planned that when the work of demolishing the old station begun early this month the trains will be kept moving in just the same way. The new Grand Central station will cover an area half as large again as the present station does. It will be bounded by the same streets as the present one, but underground, on two levels, will be separate stations, mak ing practically three stations. The boundaries will be Forty-second street, Depew place, Forty-fifth street and Vanderbllt avenue. In the first and last of these streets the width will be greatly increased to provide drive ways on the property of the railway company. Depew place will be ex tended northward as a private drive way, and will be so widened as to al low spacious standing room for bag gage and mall wagons. There are three salient characteris tics in the plans. The first is the great increase in size, enabling all the facilities essential to a terminal to ha much enlarged. The second is the provision of three tiers of tracks to the station and yard, one for local ex press service and a third for suburban trains. The third essential is In the use of the terminal loop tracks on the suburban tier to facilitate loading and unloading and to reduce the terminal wait of the trains. While the station proper Is regard ed as consisting of three parts the train shed, the concourse and the lob' bies It will include a gallery extend Ing around the exterior, provldlngi baggage room and allowing the con course to be built as a light area. The concourse, particularly on the express landing, will be the largest, In the world, being 160 feet In width and 471. feet in length. Various additional sub divisions such as a general waiting room, lunch rooms and news stands. will occupy an almost equal space On the suburban level an entirely different construction is provided There the concourse will be at the southern end of the building and will take the form of a great circular pla teau, unbroken except for two stair ways and elevators. In the matter of storways particular attention has been given to the handling of passen gers, and each pair of track will be provided with a separate outlet and entrance, while modes of egress anl Ingress will branch severally to the streets south, east and west. Although the building proper will be of only one story, it would be of un U9ual height, and with the three tiers two below ground, will make a build ing of more than Ordinary size. At firet the plans called for a building much more compact In form than the final plans do. The plans now pro vide for three sweeping arches al most semi-circular, thirty-three feet wide and sixty feat high. These fig ures will give an Idea of the partlcu larly large internal proportions of the main floor and concourse. The dome of the concourse will rise 150 feet above the first level of the traeks. For the exterior the material will be of onyz columns at regular inter vals, and these will be the only relief from the dead white. The Interior, es peclally In the waiting room and con course, will also be of white marble, Building the station Itself has not been eo much of a problem to the cn gineers of the New York Central the digging under ground for the varl oun Tiers of tracks. Especially is thla true of the third tier, that for the su burban traffic. By beginning the de pression of tracks as far away as Fifty-sixth street, It was found possi ble to have the tracks laid at differ ent grades to reach the different, lev els. It will also allow viaducts con necting each street with Forty-second street. The suburban level, the second be low the surfac?, differs from the oth ers in that the io:p terminal will be used. By this method passengers on in coming trains may alight at the right hand side of the station, pass out 'by stairways either to the levels above and to the street or to' the subway. The trains, after being unloaded, will be sent around the loop to the easter ly side of the concourse, where pas sengers desiring to board them may do so. One of the prinolpal improvements on this level will be connection with the Interborough subway. E. P. Bry an, president of the Interborough, on the .witness stand before the Public Service Commission the other day, said his railway was in consultation 1th the New York Central regarding the project, not only to connect the Interborough but also the Sielnway tunnel, running under Forty-second street and under the East River, when is completed. Mr. Bryan and the New York Central officiate, are both eager to make the connections. As drawn by the New York Centra, the plans ' provide (outlets and en trances from and to the subway at the suburban tier. These passage ways will go directly to the station platform of the Interborough. This will allow a passenger living in White Pllans or New Rochelle to , board an express train In the subway at the Brooklyn Bridge, and, without reach ing the street surface, get into his train for home. As the plans have been finally ap proved, on the suburban level, there 'ill be no rooms outside of the con course and waiting room, except the ticket office. The ticket office here will be smaller than on the other floors, as a great majority of the pas sengers at this tier will be commu ters and will have their tickets. On the express level, the first below tlie surface will be the restaurant. There will also be a luncheon room separated from the main ' restaurant. It Is understood that the railroad com pany will endeavor to have a restaur ant comparable with any in New York city. The room for parcels and check ing of baggage for short times' will al so be on this level, midway between the ionco'urse and the waiting room. There wJU also be retiring rooms on each side of the main waiting room. On the street level will be the larg est ticket office. At one end of the concourse will be a large spdee for un checked baggage. At the other will be a space of the same extent for pas sengers to leave the building. In the front the added space, under the gal lery extending from the building, will allow for cab stands. Future genera tions In -New, York who will, hear of their ancestors dodging here and there between cabs and handsoms in De pew place in a dash to catch a train will not be thus inconvenienced. The cabs will all be in front of the sta tion, away from the rush of traffic, and Depew place, now a maelstrom of bumping humanity, will be a wide, as phalted thoroughfare, comparing fav orably with Vanderbilt avenue, at the other side of the new station. while the new cation is being -built work will be well under way on the new office building In Lexington ave nue. Directly adjoining the station and comparing favorably with It In arcrtectural beauty, being built of granite and iron, this building will be nearly as large as the station. It will extend from Forty-third to' Forty-fifth street and from Lexington avenue to Depew place. The ground area will be 275 feet by 460 feet. 'I " ' While the railroad officers' formally announce that the last 'bite," as It is called, of the work wWbegin ' next week! it will be a matte of three or four years before the entire work, In volving $70,000,000 of expenditure, is ready for public approval- and use. STILL UNIDENTIFIED. Man Who Jumped from Temporary ' ' ' Bridge in Hartford. Hartford, Sept. 3. In the morgue at the police station at Hartford Is the body of a man who jumped from the temporary bridge Into the Connec ticut river last night, and which has not been positively Identified. It Is believed that the body is that of Dan iel Mahoney, whose, fyorne js near Charter Oak park. , The body was found at noon yes terday by two men who spent the forenoon grappling for It from a boat. Two women witnessed the man's act, when about 8 o'clock at night they saw him cllrn,b through the railing of the bridge, pause a moment and then jump. Policeman Thomas Gllhuly, who was on duty on the bridge, noti fied the police, and wken the body was found Medical Examiner Fuller was sent for. After Investigating he gave permission for removal and the body was taken to police headquarters. Late yesterday afternoon the positive iden tity .of the deceased had not been as' certained, although there is sufficient supposition that it is the body of Ma honey for the police to have sent for relatives of Daniel Mahoney to settle the question. EXPLOSION, THEN A FIRE. John J. Ahern Has Exciting Exper ience With His Machine. Hartford, Sept. 3. The automobile of John J. and Francis Ahern was burned near St. Mary's home, West Hartford, Monday evening about 5 o'clock. John J. Ahern was out with the machine. He went out Albany avenue. The machine was working badly and Mr. Ahern decided not to risk the cut at the Albany avenue bridge and possibly be stalled, and so came in by way of St. Mary's home. When near the home he got out to see if he could fix the machine. It was leaking gasoline badly and prob ably became baa tired. While Ahern was trying to tighten the sup ply pipe there was a slight explosion and the rear of the machine caught fire. He threw mud on the fire and finally succeeded in checking the flames, but not until the rear part Of the auto was ruined. Mr. Ahern had his right hand scorched and his trousers were burned in several places. BERTRAND KILLED IN BRTDGE COLLAPSE. It has been definitely learned that George Bertrand of 313 Water street, a bridge builder of this city, was one of the workmen who met death in the collapse of the great cantilever bridge at Quebec last weeu.

WHITE CITY WEDDING BELIS GREAT EVENT TO-NIGHT Most Novel and Gorgeous Cer emony "Sherlock Holmes" Night To-morrow. In one respect the wedding at the White City to-night will be thoroughly unique. It will be the first colored wedding ever performed ,at a public amusement resort In New England. In many other respects it will be one of the most novel events that has ever graced a program. The contracting parties to-night will be Mr. Leroy Huey of Dixwell avenue and Miss Sophia Herbert, a splendid specimen of ebony beauty, who former ly, was a belle of Jacksonville. As stated yesterday the wedding had been advertised as a real old Virginia af fair, but Miss Herbert objected and strenuously, too, . to Manager Specie saying she would have no wedding at all if she could not have one as good as the best society folk. In view of this the manager changed his mind and the whole affair will be given In sumptuous style. - ' Yesterday the contracting parties held a rehearsal with the best man, Mr. Leroy Crane, and the bridesmaid, Miss Flora Hilton, and also the ushers, the little picklnnles who are to aot as train and flower bearers. The rehear sal itself was a grand success and the real ceremony to-night promises to be more than interesting and beautiful. The costumes of the bride and brides maid will be lavish affairs in the dress making art. The bride will be resplen dent In a- gorgeous gown of silk, cut entrain. She will wear rubies and dia monds. The Second Regiment band under Director Flchtl will play the ever popular wedding marches of Loh engrin and Mendelssohn and the cere mony will be preceded by a fine wed ding concert. Another big night at the White City will be to-morrow when Manager Speck gives a "Sherlock Holmes Evening", that promises more fun than anything thus far this season. This is the plan: At 7:30 a couple will enter the White City. One of them will have $! which Is to be given to the first person asking the right couple this question: "Have you got my $5?" At 8:30 another couple will enter with $0 and the. first one asking Ahe "ques tion: "Have you got my $(i?" will re ceive tne money. At 9:30 a third couple will enter with $7 which will be given under the samo conditions. This one thing must be understood. The ladies must ask the gentlman And the gentleman the lady. The whole af fair which is wholly original Is fruit ful of an avalanche of fun and the re sort will ring wit hthe questions have you got my $5, $6 or $7 as the case may he. Attend the game and havo the time of your lives. OBltUARY NOTES. FUNERAL SERVICES OF GEORGE F. BROOKE OF WEST HAVEN. , Funeral services over the remains of George F.

Mclntyre and Heath, the greatest and most humorous Impersonators of negro character on the stage, will be the attraction at the Hyperion Friday evening, ' September 6, in a new mu sical novelty called "The Ham Tree," described on the program as "Klaw & Erlanger's Laugh Trust." These clev er comedians, with their company of 100 entertainers, made their debut in 'The Ham Tree" at the New . York theater in August, 1905, where they ran for several weeks ,to the largest attendance in the history of this thea ter. After the engagement they play ed long runs in Pittsburg, Philadel phia and Boston, repeating their New York success. Then followed a tour of other cities where tharfr perform ance gave immense satisfaction. They opened the present season ep. the New York theater July 30, and from the opening night till the close the house was packed. The book of "The Ham Tree" Is by George V. Hobart, the author of the famous "John Henry stories, the lyrics are by William Jerome and the music by Jean Schwartz. The com pany numbers 100 people. The prin cipals of Mclntyre and Heath's sup port are W. C. B'ields, the tramp Jug gler; Frederick V. Bowers, the bal lad writer, singer and juvenile actor; Jeanne Towler, Carolyn Gordon, Belle Gold, Alfred Fisher and David Tor- rence. The ensembles Include the most beautiful chorus of singing and dacing girls ever presented in a mu sical play. . "The Ham Tree" is staged lti three acts and four scenes showing the Traveler's Rest, a country hotel at Marlon, S. C; a water tank on the P. Q. Q. R. R., near Dover, Del.; a wood near the railroad track, and a drawing room in Mrs. Nicklobacker's Fifth avenue palace. These scenes serve as a background for the cleverest hu morous play the stage has seen In many a season. Mr. Mclntyre plays the part of a livery stable attendant, Alexander Hambletoriian, the "nachul comejean," who is lured from. his job to throw himself into the arms of fame as a footlight favorite. Mr: Heath's character is that of Henry Jones, a Georgia minstrel, who lures Alexander into the limelight. NEW HAVEN. There was a large audience at the New Haven theater last night to wit ness the presentation of Walter White side's great comedy success "We Are King." Lawrence Evarts in the dual role of Gustavus Vanner and Hector, king of Kahnberg, was excellent and had the audience with him during the presentation. Miss Viola Dale as Princess Olivia gave valuable support to Mr. Evarts. The scenic arrange ments and costumes are good. The performance will be given again to-day, matinee and night. "HIS TERRIBLE SECRET." The attraction at the New Haven theater Thursday, Friday and Satur day nights this week and at the mat inee .Saturday will be Chas. E. Bla ney's great drarna of mystery "His Terrible Secret," or "The Man Mon key." This play was written especial ly for Wm. H. Turner, who has dis played his ability as a character actor in various roles. The action occurs In Africa and the plot deals with parent al influence. Incidents of the exciting sort are plentiful. There is an elec". trical effect in one of the principal? scenes which is promised will be one of the most realistic stage effects ever presented. Mr. Turner will be sur rounded by a carefully chosen oom pany. Picturesque scenery has been painted for the production. This play iSChas. E. Blaney's latest effort and is in the popular melodra matic class and furthermore has been-; pronounced by competent critics ful ly up to every accepted standard in plot, situation and personnel. The au- thor In writing this play has follow- 18 The materials and The prices $15.00 to $25.00 $40.00 Up " 1 ed in the footsteps of the immortal Dickens, believing that life depicted from life' as life is, is ' the supreme acme of the writer's art and therefore, in plotting, Writing and staging this play, he has followed absolutely th happenings of every day life. - POLI'S. The opening of the vaudeville sea son at Poli's theater Monday certainly met with approval, as the house was filled to the limit of its capacity at both, performances, and the same con- dltion was tme of yesterday, The bill was an excellent one fut a dull act during the whole bill. . J. C. Rice and Sally Cohen, the headHnrs, are, old favorites and had a particularly happy act, a farce, "All the World Loves a Lover," which was a genuine merry laugh producer. The Four Rianos, a jolly quartet with an acrobatic , stunt entitled "In Africa," were heartily received. : Howard and Howard sang some good songs and said some funny things, winning merited applause. . Eddie Leonard, with southern songs and dances, is a pleasing minstrel boy. The Gordon brothers, who also dance during this'aot, are wonders. The musical couple, Eckoff and Gordon, have all manner of instru ments absolutely at their command, and have a good bit of comedy which they blend with their playing. Melville and Higglns, in "Just a Uttle Fun," and Norton and Nichols, with a quiok-change act, were appre ciated, as they deserved. ; . i ; The ''electrograph was In evidence and as popular as ever. There were some very amusing pictures shown. GOING TO HARTFORD. City Officials Getting Names in for 1 Wednesday Trip.
