An agreement that seems to assure the dual subway system was reached last evening after an All Day discussion Between the transit committee of the Board of estimate and the Public service commission. They adopted eleven routes which have been under consideration entirely modified the layout of the new lines in the financial districts and thereby cleared the Way for the submission of the report of president Mcaneny of the transit committee to the Board of estimate. This report if adopted who contain the assurances to the inter Borough which were required by j. P. Morgan amp co., the Bankers of the company. There seemed last night to be no doubt of its adoption. Neither or. Shonts nor Morgan amp co. Would discuss the situation yesterday but it was gathered that the reports they had received of the Progress made in the negotiations Between the Board of estimate committee and the Public service commission had been satisfactory. It was understood that j. P. Morgan amp co. Had expressed willingness to wait at least to the end of the present week before serving their notice of withdrawal from their agreement to Supply the inter Borough funds and it was expected that by that time it would be evident that there was no peed of action. In the conference Between be Public service commission and the Board of estimate committee an entirely new disposition of the new lines to serve the financial District and to provide Access to Brooklyn was adopted. It was proposed by Alfred Craven chief Engineer of the commission As a Compromise and was pronounced acceptable by the engineers of both the b. R. T. And the inter Borough. In addition to satisfying them it has the merits of providing a service for the financial District East of Broadway much More Complete than any before suggested by the commission. The b. R t. Is to get the Whitehall Street Montague Street Tunnel that it has been pressing for. It will connect by Morris Street with the Southern end of its Broadway line which at this Point is in Trinity place and the Extension of the Loop line will run into it. The Loop line will however now run Down Nassau and Broad streets and not William Street As had been suggested before. Both get routes they want. The inter Borough will get the old slip Clark Street Tunnel which the commission had before assigned to the b. R. To. And a suggestion of or. Craven has made this route very valuable. Now it will de connected at Park place with the seventh Avenue line of the inter Borough which at this Point is in West Broadway and will run across City Hall Park at mall Street through Beekman Street to William and Down that thoroughfare to old slip. It will probably have a station at mail Street perhaps connecting with the present City Hall station and two others at Fulton and Wall addition the Eon ferries came to an agreement to permit the b. R. T. The physical connection it has desired Between its canal Street and its Broadway lines this will be accomplished by running the Crosstown line from Manhattan Bridge on the second level under the Loop line and the present subway As far As the canal Street station to be built for the Broadway line. There it will turn North and will Rise slowly to the first level to connect with the Broadway tracks a about Howard Street. This connection is to of made at the sole expense of the b. R. T. And will Cost about $500,000. Provision wid also be made for the Extension of the canal Street Crosstown line at some future Date through to the North River. Other routes settled yesterday Are in connection with the Steinway Tunnel Ana the Queen Sboro Bridge Plaza the Eastern District Brooklyn system and the fourteenth Street Tunnel other routes in Brooklyn and the Tunnel from sixty fifth Street Brooklyn to Staten Island. It is hoped that the building of this Tunnel May be accelerated by the fact that it will be used for the accommodation of the water Mains of the new Catskill Aqueduct system which otherwise would have to be Laid separately across the Bay at graft expense. It has also been suggested that it might be constructed with a Sulli a gently Large bore to permit the regular freight trains of the railroads with terminals m new Jersey to use it to reach Long Island. The formal agreement was drawn up and signed by the Eon ferries chairman Willcox commissioners Maltbie Eustis and Williams and Borough presidents Mcaneny Miller and Cromwell. It was understood that the Public service commission would Send it to the Board of estimate and that the transit committee would recommend the adoption of to routes designated. This is the a. Cement the agreement. I.

A a a hard tor Ohio vote aft blazing the Trail through the state Roosevelt in close out to hear them president asks for a Square Deal a colonel promises better Rule next time. Rival managers confident each sure of Victory in next tuesday s primaries a to fight till the polls open. Special toe the new York times. Youngstown Ohio May .14.�?with president Taft and col Theodore Roosevelt both actively on the stump contending for control of the delegates from the presidents Owa state to the Republican National convention with gov. Judson Hannon touring the state and militantly combating the assertion made by William Jennings Bryan la his Ohio speeches that the Man who during two administrations has Given Ohio More progressive legislation than All of his predecessors is a reactionary with scores of speakers of lesser note but almost nation wide reputation supporting the principals in their fights and with minor candidates in primary contests gunning for rivals the Buckeye state is in the throes of the bitterest struggle in its Stormy political history. It was not until col. Roosevelt invaded the presidents state to Day that the conflict began to assume its present proportions. As both the president and the colonel Are scheduled to remain on the scene of political warfare until the eve of the primary election next tuesday and As there is an indication that the factional strife within the Republican ranks will grow More bitter As it proceeds there is every Prospect that the democratic fight will attract comparatively Little attention. Gov. Harmon is exceedingly popular rank and file of his party and his record As governor utterly belies the charge made by or. Bryan. For that reason his Friendt declare that he will come out Winner from the primary struggle especially As gov. Wilson and speaker Clark his strongest opponents for the nomination have declined Point Blank to enter the governor s state for the purposes of making a fight for the delegation to the Baltimore convention. Republican fight muddled. The situation on the Republican Side of the conflict is so muddled and so Many factors enter into it that it is impossible at the present time to venture anything like a reliable forecast. The supporters of col. Roosevelt after his reception in the presidents state today display what in some quarters is characterized As overconfidence. On the other hand the friends of president Taft declare that the colonel has already fired All his big guns while they have an abundant Supply of Reserve ammunition to be used at the eleventh hour. They also assert with apparent Confidence that the soundness of the arguments advanced by or. Taft and the loyalty ohioans naturally must feel for a son of Ohio when an outsider disputes him in his own state must give him the Victory. To Day the itinerary of the two rival candidates covered very much the same ground thus affording in some degree an Opportunity for comparison Between the reception accorded each in identical localities. The most important speeches by president Taft and col. Roosevelt in the same communities were made at Steubenville where the president spoke last night and the colonel this Forenoon and in this City where col. Roosevelt spoke this afternoon and president Taft wound up his Day of speech making at a meeting held in the Park theatre. The rivals at Youngstown. President Taft was More than on hour and a half overdue when he reached Youngstown this evening. A crowd in numbers far exceeding the audience which earlier in the Day had greeted coi. Roosevelt when he spoke at the Park theatre had been sitting patiently and putting up with scant entertainment by second rate orators while waiting for the he arrived the audience gave him a reception fully As cordial if not More so than the Welcome accorded his rival for the presidential nomination. The crowds which greeted col. Roosevelt in the streets where he Rode preceded by a brass band through a living Lane of people eager to get a look at him in the sunlight of this afternoon May have been a trifle More noisy than those who greeted president Taft when Long overdue he arrived in a drizzle to night. There was one incident at the meeting prior to the arrival of president Taft which caused concern to his friends. S. D. L Jackson a prominent lawyer of this City had been pressed into service for an address while the audience was waiting. He made several references to president Taft mentioning his name. The audience remained passive antediluvian whiskey. Every Man who knows Good whiskey drinks antediluvian. Luyties by a adv. Then at one Point Quot in his speech Quot he said. A a that Man Theodore immediately he was interrupted by a storm of applause and cheering that lasted for a minute or More. The applause was renewed every time he alluded to the colonel in the course of his speech for president Taft. But when the president who had been rushed from his special train to the theatre in a big automobile appeared on the stage he was roundly cheered. And when in speaking he hurled the name of col. Roosevelt with an almost scornful ring in his voice at the huge audience there was the faintest Ripple of applause merely and nothing like the storm that had greeted earlier references to his name. The president appeared to make a very men and women on woman suffrage views for and against votes.

King of Denmark Dies at Hamburg Frederick brother of Queen Alexandra of England passes away suddenly. On the throne six year by his democratic bearing and Hearty interest in his people he had won the nations love Hamburg May Viii., King of Denmark died to night. He was a brother of Queen Alexandra of England. The reign of Frederick Viii. Has been too Short and the part his country has played of late in history has been too Small to make him a very noteworthy character. He succeeded his father King Christian in january 1906, when he was already sixty two years old and thenceforth played his part As a constitutional Monarch with an ability and High purpose that won for him the admiration of those who were most opposed in principle to All his office stands for. King Frederick was born june 3. 183, and was married on july 28, 1869, to the Princess Louise of Sweden and Norway. During his fathers Long reign he was in the danish army entering the guards at an Early age and serving through All ranks till he became inspector general of the army. As King he was noted for his absence of anything like show. He was a Busy Man for with his wife he was interested in All that made for the welfare of the Community. He was Chancellor of the danish National University and grand master of the freemasons of Denmark and discharged with real Industry the duties appertaining to these offices. He was always the most approachable of men. In Copenhagen or near the summer Palace at Hidore the King was a familiar figure strolling through crowded streets or secluded country lanes sometimes absolutely unattended and with Seldom any More efficient guard than one of the gentlemen of his court. He knew personally Many of his neighbors and was fond of dropping in to Chat with them Over their family affairs. A Stoa a that once a ran a party of americans had found Way into the gardens of one of his summer palaces he showed them around and Only revealed his identity As he Shook hands at parting and remarked Quot if you want to see the stables just say you have the Kings a danish Monarch less democratic might have found his official duties difficult to perform. Socialism is rampant in Denmark and the King must submit to Mai a things that would be intolerable to one obsessed with divine right theories. King Frederick however won absolute Praise by his strict regard of the limits of constitutional authority. He realized that it was his to use not to abuse those with whom he disagreed and he could Admire the ability of even those most opposed to him. So whatever the economic views of the most Radical of his subjects not a word was Ever breathed against King Frederick Queen Louise or the rest of the Royal House. They were recognized As fulfilling the duties prescribed for them by the Constitution with conscientious exactitude and As always acting for what they believed the Best interests of their people. King Frederick was related to Many Royal families of Europe. Of his three Sisters one is Alexandra Queen Mother of England another is Marie Dagmar dowager Empress of Russia and a third Thyra is the Duchess of Cumberland whose husband claims the throne of Hanover. One of his Brothers is King George i. Of Greece and the other Waldemar who married Princess Marie of Orleans and refused the Crown of Bulgaria in 1886. He is succeeded by his eldest son. Christian who married in 1898 the Duchess Alexandrine of Mecklenburg and is now 41 years old. He has two children the Crown Prince Frederick and Prince Knud. Another of King Frederick s sons is King Haakon Vii. Of Norway who married the Princess Maud of Wales King Georges youngest sister while Ingeborg the eldest daughter of the late King married in 1897 Prince Charles of dying of grief.

The cause of the Accident has not been wins in California his vote equal to that polled by both Taft and la voters out Early most of them vote for the colonel and hurry Back to their housework. Democrats name Clar Only about half the state a it full vote polled at primary which is final. Special to the new York Tims. San Francisco cal., May 14.-with 17 per cent of the state vote counted at 9 of clock try night Midnight new York time it 1b Plain that Roosevelt has carried California by a vote equal to that cast for both president Taft and senator la Follette. Returns from 583 precincts out of 3,700 in the state give the following results Roosevelt. Taft .16,303 la Follette .9.954 Clark. 5,974 Wilson. 2.o04 returns from 220 precincts in san Francisco county included in the foregoing give Roosevelt 10,887 Taft 8,416 la Follette 4,887 Clark 3,805. And Wilson 1.642. These returns were in the main from the five Congress districts embracing the three most populous districts of the state san Francisco and los Angeles counties and the suburban area bordering san Fra Nolsaco Bay. In san Francisco where were entered the Hopes of the Taft managers the vote was close. One Hundred and Twenty precincts Complete in san Francisco county Cut of 856 gave Roosevelt 5,281, Taft 4,285, la Follette 2,572, Clark 1,913, and Wilson 823. Outside of san Francisco Roosevelt apparently carried every Congress District his vote being especially heavy in the Interior counties. All of the Twenty six delegates elected to Day were chosen at Large and according to the state Law they Are bound by the popular expression of preference Gvoic a Victory unexpected. The tremendous vote cast for Roosevelt was unexpected except by few of his warmest partisans. It is to be explained in several ways. Most of the women who cast their first vote to Day have voted for the spectacular candidate. Then most of the Federal office holders Here and especially custom House officials to show their resentment against reductions of salary voted against Taft. To these must be added the progressives and All who believe that Taft has not carried out Angostura bitters originated 1824, an old Friend an effective a Sprigg tonic a adv a 4 the policies of his predecessor. In the Southern part of the state where a straight Republican ticket usually is voted the defections from Taft were heavier than in Northern California. The Early returns from los Angeles show that Roosevelt is Poling 2 to 1 Over Taft. In Pasadena the Home of Many wealthy people Roosevelt scored 8 to 1 Over Taft. The same proportion holds Good in Riverside and Santa Barbara. In san Francisco a Large percentage of the 28,570 women who had registered voted. Many women acted As election officers and proved capable and efficient. The women As a Rule have no trouble and knew All about the methods used at the polls. Cuik also w Victor. In the democratic fight Champ Clark has carried California by a majority of 2 to 1. His vote both in san Francisco and throughout the state is More than twice that of Wilson and in Many places he will poll a vote of 3 to 1. In Southern California Clark polled the same surprising vote that Roosevelt did. Women Early at the polls. In los Angeles the Republican women of California were the first at the polls beating the men by hours As a Rule. When the polls opened there were a number of women waiting in almost every precinct the general reason Given for this was that they had to vote Early to get Back to their housework. The first ballot cast in los Angeles was by mrs. Edna Bragg Mother of eight children who lives at 417 Santee Street near the River and she said she must hurry Back to the House. She had three of the children with her when she arrived at the polling place. The Only interest Manifest was at the opening hour. After that the polling became lighter and lighter. Less than half the women s vote in los Angeles county was polled and less than that of the menus vote. Women were represented on both Taft and Roosevelt tickets and Boh factions played hard during the Campaign to interest the women voters. The telegraphic eleventh hour plea of the new York suffragists to support Roosevelt was resented by some of the women though the advice was followed by Many. This was the first time that women of California had to express their Choice for the presidential nomination. Wife aided la Follette.
