New York, Oct. 27. The Rapid
Transit railroad, the subway, as It is
popularly known, and the most coins
sal undertaking of its kind in the
world's history, was formally opened
today with Imposing ceremonies. The
exercises took place under the Joint
auspices of the Interborough company
and the board of aldermen. In City
Hall park, where the great downtown
terminal is located and where the
first spadeful of earth was turned,
the principal ceremonies of the day
took place shortly before noon. The
park and city hall were lavishly dec
Bishop Potter opened the cere
monies with prayer and was followed
by an' address by Alexander E. Orr,
president of the Rapid Transit com
mission, who turned the subway over
to the city. Mayor McClellan accept
ed the trust, and then turned the road
over to August Belmont, president of
the Interborough company, who also
made a brief address. Archbishop
Farley closed the ceremonies.
At 1 o clock the first train was
sturted over the road, operated by
Mayor McCiellun In person. Bands
of music were stationed at all the
principal stops along the route. In
eluded among the passengers on the
first train were the city officials, of'
flcials of the Interborough "company,
a large party of distinguished engl
neers and other , Invited , guests.
Promptly at midnight tonight the
rond will be opened to the general
public. That part of the road that
will be operated for the present In
eludes the whole of the main line
from City Hall park to the Harlem
river on the upper west Bide, It Is
expected to huve the entire west side
opened to traffic within a month or
no, and nlso the east side branch to
21 Miles Underground.
The great subway opened today
consists of 21 miles of railroad under
the city's teeming streets. The actual
work of construction hus taken just
four years and the cost exceeded
$50,000,000. When the entire system
Is completed It will enable one to
travel from the limits of Brooklyn to
the northernmost end of Manhattan
A (lUKZling array of facts and fig
ures tell the story of the building of
the mammoth underground road.
For instance, more than 8,000,000 cu
bic yards of dirt nad rock were blast
ed and dug from the streets of the
crowded city. .To tear away the rock
1100.000 pounds of dynamite were
used. Eleven thousand men were
employed In the work and of this
number several hundred lost their
lives through accidents, premature
explosions, cave-ins and falling rock.
It is estimated that the road will
carry 115.000,000 passengers a year,
The fare Is 5 cents. When the exten
sion to Brooklyn, under the East river
has been completed it Is estimated
that the road will curry 200,000.000
passengers a year.
Express trntns will run through the
subway at the rate of a mile a min
ute for the benefit of the long hauls
from the Bronx to the busiest sec
tions of the city below Fourteenth
street. Local trains will stop at all
of the underground stations, every
half dozen blocks along the route
The tunnel Is ventilated by a system
of electric fans and illuminated the
entire route by Incandescent lights.
A trip through the great tunnel Is
all that Is necessary to- convince one
of Its entire security. White enameled
bricks wall up the aides to a bricked
nrch overhead. Everything else Is of
stotie and steel, and, heavy plate
Glass at the stations to let the light
in from the street overhead. It would
Mem impossible for a disaster to oc
cur when everything Is as new and
strong and perfect, apparently, as It
is within the power of man to con
trive. The pneumatic block system
Is pronounced by experts to be the
most wonderful thing of Its kind in
the world and It Is calculated to make
The cars have steel bottoms, copper
sheathed sides, and there Is very little
wood In their construction. The light
ing system is entirely separate trom
the power plant that will move the
trains by means of the third rail.
The route of the main line Is up
fourth avenue to Forty-second street
'hen up Broadway until One Hun
dred nnd Fourth street Is reached
There It branches Into two sections.
The first continues straight out
Broadway to Kingsbrldge, a distance
of more than 14 miles from Battery
rK. The second section runs east.
