WOMEN DEMAND RIGHTS
'STIR UP THE SOCIALISTS.
Praise Hvjitcr, but Nominate Wan
hope for Governor.
"While the N>w Tork State Convention of the
Socialist party -was In cession yesterday afternoon
at the Labor Tempi* In Mjh street, near Second
avenue, the Women's Socialist Society was b«>inK
formed In another room, tw-o floors below, with
Mrs. Theresa Malklle in the chair. It ■will teach
socialism to the women.
During the sesf=lon of the state convention the
women swarmed up to th» convention hall to hear
the disposition of resolutions which their society
had submitted to the con ion. Two of these,
■which were adopted, pledged the Socialist party to
the support of the woman's suffrage movement and
to work for Its success.
Two more resolutions which the committee failed
to approve caused a lively dlyussion. These were
that socialist propajfanda clubs of women should
be organised to teach socialism to wom<=n. and
that members of women's auxiliaries, to be formed
for the same purpose, could Join the Socialist party
or not as they pleased.
"The women want everything." said U. Solomon,
secretary of the New York section. "I believe that
•woman Is the equal of man. but is not his supe
rior."
Comrade. Msrr. of Brooklyn, said the women
•"were biting off mo»a than they could chew." and
asked why they should not join the Socialist party.
Comrade Gerber proposed that the convention
recognize only members of the Socialist party, men
or tronvn. without regard "to sex, color or creed."
He said that the party stood for equal rights "for
all sexes."
"The women's auxiliaries are here, and they have
come to stay." Miss Maley said. "How are the
•women to learn socialism unless they join the
auxiliaries'?" she asked.
"That's what I want to know." said Mrs. Anita
T. Block. "You men ought to be ashamed of
yourselves for not recognizing the rights of the
■women socialists. You ought to have pome sense
of the fitness of things. I am a member of a dis
trict of the Socialist party, and I found that I
could learn nothing at the meetings of the district.
It Is necessary for the women to get together
first."
"You men ought to exercise a little horse sense."
eaid Miss Ne-wman. a woman delegate, who was
called the. Joan of Arc of the East Side rent strike.
"You Fay that women Fhould have equal rights
•with men. but you don't carry out your ideas."
Dozens of delegates wanted to speak at once,
and an uproarious scene lasting for an hour fol
lowed. A resolution was passed finally that wom
en's organizations for the teaching of socialism
be encouraged, and another resolution that there
rhould he no sex line in socialism, which appar
ently contradicts the first resolution, was adopted.
Joshua "Wanhope. of New York, was nominated
for Governor. A eulogy of Robert Hunter, who
had been mentioned as a candidate, was made by
a delegate, who said that Mr. Hunter had never
desired the nomination, although he had always
been a good worker in the socialist cause. Gustav
Strebbel. of Syracuse, was nominated for Lieuten
ant Governor.
One delegate criticised "The Evening Call," the
socialist daily printed in English. After a long dis
cussion the paper and its management were vin
dicated.

GRAND FRIXTOMORROW
READY, FOR DIEPPE RACE.
French and Italian Drivers Favorites
in Auto Contest.
Dieppe. July s.— This year's great French
automobile race for the Coupe Internationale.
known as th* Grand Prix, will be run on Tues
day over the Dieppe course, where Nazarro last
year broke all records, covering the course at
an average speed/ of 113.5 kilometres (about
seventy and one-half miles) an hour.
Th* course is in perfect condition, and the
drivers who are gathered here expect that last
ypar's tim<* record will be broken, both for the
distance and for the single lap. The course is
closed and triangular in &hape.
Automobilists are swarming into Dieppe from
all parts of Europe and from the United States.
Thf American and British contingents are espe
cially conspicuous. The French confidently px
p^ct to recapture the cup. though Nazarro and
Lancia are even money favorites against the
French experts. The Germans are feared, but
tho English are not regarded as dangerous.
Thirty-five to one is offered against Strand's
chances. The American driver Is not boasting,
and says that he will be content with a credit
able showing. Strang will drive a Thomas ma
chine, and as he holds the world's record for
the fastest miles he may give an excellent ac
count of himself before the race is end<»d.
There is considerablp interest in the voitur*=tte
rare, which will be run to-morrow. The condi
tions call for light machines, weighing less than
six hundred kilogrammes.
All Th»» machines competing in this year's big race
must have a maximum cylinder bore of 155 milli
metres, according to the new rules for the race.
The cars will travel over a triangular circuit of
forty-eight miles ten times. In front of the grand
stand there is a straight stretch where top speed
will be possible. Then follow a few slight turns
and a down grade to Envermeu, a village in which
the streets have been barricaded and wood bridges
provided for crossing the course. From Envermeu
to Londonieres there is a straightaway, and th*-n
a few down grade turns, with/ a double "8" curve
at Londonieres. This is one of the hardest parts
of the course. After passing through Londonieres
there is a winding climb of three or four miles
that- will test the skill of the drivers and the
climbing power of the cars.
Having accomplished the climb, the racers will
take a. down grade, another short climb and then
a straight stretch to the village of Eu. with a
hairpin turn in the .marketplace. The course is
then up and down to the village cf Criel. and then
a. ten-mile, stretch that can be taken at highest
speed. Another hairpin turn will bring J^ie racers
into the stretch for a dash by the grandstand. The
course will be policed with troops, as in the past.
In front of the grandstand there is a pit with a
stall pet aside for each team. In this pit tire
changes and such other work as become neces
sary on the racing cars will be carried on in full
view of the spectators. Work can be done only
by the driver and his mechanician.
The cars entered and their starting order fol

THINK WOMAN LURED MAN TO DEATH.
What Was First Supposed To Be Fourth
Accident May Be Plot.
Fa^saie. N. J.. July s.— What was at first thought
to be a Fourth of July accident Is now said to
have been an attempt at murder The victim is
in the General Hospital with a serious bullet
wound. He may not live.
On Friday night John Marreino. of No. 170 3d
street, was found In Main avenue with a bullet
hole in his back. The pol cc sent the man to the
General Hospital, thinking it to be the result of
a chance shot fired by some one celebrating the
Fourth. Since then the police have arrested Mr.
and Mr* Galtano. who live across the street
from th« wounded man. at No. 171 3d street Soon
after the man was found Mr. and Mrs. Gaitano
f|«-d t" Robertpford. a pettlement across the. Pas
naic. Rtver from the Botany mills, where they were
ax rested.
Mrs. Galtano says Marreino was a constant
visitor at her homo, us ha was a friend of the
family. About a month ago ehe resented his at
tention*. On Friday evening Marreino appeared
at her house, and finding; Mrs. Gaitano alone, im
plored her. Bhe says, to fly with him to Italy.
When she. refused Marreino drew a pistol from his
pocket nnd threatened to kill her. Bhe wrenched
the pistol from him fend in the struggle the
weapon was discharged. The man staggered
across the street and fell. Mnrrelno Bays his at
tentions were, not resented by the woman, and
that she invited him to accompany her for a walk,
and they ■*•*• followed by the woman's husband
and Vlrscenzio Mondanlo. also of No. 170 3d street.
Marreino says that Gaitano fired five shots at him
when they were In a lonely section. The police
think that the woman lured the man who was
shot to a lonely section as the result of a plot.
Mr. and Mrs. Gaitano are being: held for the
a^-and Jury.

HEAT CLAIMS 4 MORE
NINE P ROSTRA TED.
Hotter at Beach than in the City —
Again "Fair" To-day.
The sun, his genial countenance "sicklied o'er
with the pale cast 1 ' of malevolence, smiled in a
Ithamly way yesterday at the myriads of ■ Miter
in X humanity hunting for a current of air. But the
air knew better than to exercise on such a day. so
there was no lightening of the heavy blanket of
humidity which sapped the life from strong and
weak alike. "Hot. ain't it?" was the universal
greeting, for yesterday no one had energy enough
to swear.
And. as the last straw, it wan hotter at the beach
in actual degrees than it was in tbe city. At Coney
Island, where 500.000 city gwelterers sought relief
Jn vain, it reached 90 in the shade, the hottest day
the resort hap known in several seasons Indeed,
it was hot enough to kill Kenneth Blourock. four
teen months old. son of Morris Blourock. a dry
goods merchant, of No. 3S2S Fort Hamilton ave
nue. Brooklyn, as he was playing with his two little
sisters on the beach beside the cool ocean. Thi3
j happened at Sea Beach Walk, and the infant died
I in the midst of the big. excited crowd before Dr.
Fischer, of the Reception Hospital, could reach
' him. Four prostrations were recorded among tho
j^leasure seekers at the resort.
It is ten days sin^e the hot wave struck the city.
The weatber bureau says "fair" for to-day, which
la only its method of breaking the news gently.
But for Tuesday "showers and cooler" is the fore
cast. Yesterday. the thermometer reached 8S de
grees at 3:4n o'clock in the afternoon, having
climbed there from 75 at 8 o'clock in the morning.
The humidity in the morning was 91. but It dropped
to 73 at 8 o'clork at night, when the temperature
hnd fa!l°n to S3.
The fact that it was Sunday and a "day of rest"
undoubtedly saved many from death, and even
more from prostration. As it was. four 'deaths
ere reported, the heat drove one man insane and
nine were reported prostrated.

drove his family from their home at No. 59 North

the ambulance surgeon by the throat and was

Sleeping out of doors to escape the heat seems to
be gaining in popularity among the we^to-do. in
fart the midsummer custom. . discarded by the
tenement dwellers, of sleeping on the roof has been
enthusiastically taken up by many in much more
comfortable surroundings. The tenement house
dweller now takes to the fire escape or to the park
grass when the Park Department becomes gen-
6 The grass in the parks is now a forbidden couch
however, and will not be sacrificed to the needs of
the suffering poor until desperate measures seem
necessary. In the mean time the fire escapes will
be crammed with mattresses and bedding to defeat
their purpose and save the Btargazera from the
trouble of taking their beds to the roof.
One of the most enthusiastic of the roof sleepers
is Frederick T. Greene, assistant general agent of
the Charity Organization Society. Mr. Greene con
tracted the habit in Turkey, where he served for
many years as a mission worker. The Armenians,
he says, are in every respect physically superior to
those who have lived in America any considerabla
length of time, because of their custom, of sleep
ing in the open on the flat tiled roofs. Mr. Greene,
to overcome the disadvantages for sleeping on the
New York roof, has invented a roof bed frame,
covered with a slanting canvas roof and side cur
tains, which will cover two canvas camp beds with
a foot-wide aisle between. The whole may be
clamped to a chimney if the owner fears being
blown off the roof.
There is a group of business men having offices
in the various downtown skyscrapers who return
to their office roo?s to sleep. The roof habit is
also taking strong hold in Brooklyn, particularly
on the Park Slope. From the tops of those houses
tlere is a wonderful view of the bay. It is in
this section that Mme. Alma Webster-Powell, the
singer, has a star parlor, which can be used by
the. whole family, rain or shine, for roof sleeping.
But indiscriminate sleeping out of doors, whether
on roofs, fire escapes or other equally shelterless
places, has proved dangerous for young and deli
cate children. Charitable institutions on the East
Side report numbers of cases of pneumonia among
infants in that crowded section, a peculiar malady
to come in the wake of a heat wave. '
WOMEN ATTACK "PEEPING TOM."
Deputy Commissioner Woods and ninety-five de
tective? from Manhattan and Brooklyn policed
roney Island thoroughly yesterday and made nu
merous arrest* in the hie crowd of visitors. An
alleged "Peeping Tom" was found beneath a bath

KANGAROO KNOCKS OUT BOXER.
Dodo, described by Coney Island's only unshorn
press agent as an "unknown boxer from Aus
tralia," but in real life a kangaroo, won "nan. ls
down" in a bout with "KJff" Cahan, an amateur,
in the Bostock animal arena in Dreamland last
night. The kangaroo introduced la savate. the
French fighting method, and kicked Cahan on the
head. That young man, impressed by the presence
of the press agent, insisted upon being carried
from the ring, and a doctor who "happened" to be
near raised his voice to say that it would be sev
eral Jays before the boxer could get out again.
ADMITS BURIAL OF HER BABY.
The mystery surrounding the finding of the body
of the- two months old child buried allv'a in the-
Haoken«ack Golf Club grounds was cleared up
yesterday morning by the arrest of Sophia Collins,
a Polish girl, twenty-one years old. who admits
being the mother of the child and burying it. The

SAY LAW IS VIOLATED
Civil Service Reform Association
Asks Investigation.
The New York Civil Service Reform Association
has sent a letter to the State Civil Service Com
mission citing alleged violations of the Civil Ser
vice laws in the finance department of New York
City and asking the commission" to make an in
vestigation. If this should be undertaken, the
finance department would be under two investi
gations, for the Legislature at the last session
pas.-cd a law providing for a commission to investi
gate the conduct of that department with a view
to straightening out the city's finances.
The letter, sent on Jul> 1 to the State Civil Ser
vice Commission, says it appears that "with few
exceptions, and those mostly of recent date, since
the department has been under investigation, the
constitutional requirement that appointments
shall be made for merit and fitness has been Ig
nored and violated, and political considerations
have been the determining motive in making ap
pointments to positions in the exempt class and in
the selection of men for special service in the bu
reau of assessments and arrears."
Under the Civil Service laws, appointment to
offices in the classified service, which includes ex
empt places because of political "pull" becomes a
misdemeanor. Since Controller Metz took office, the
Civil Service Reform Association has found, there
have been sixty-three appointments to exempt
places of persons not before in the department.
Of those fifty-four were enrolled Democrats, six not
enrolled, one a Republican, one an Independence
leaguer and one defectively enrolled. Of those not
enrolled, one was secretary of a Democratic district
dub, and one, Charles T. Raines, son of Sen
ator John Raines, majority leader of the State
Senate. The fifty-four Democrats had among them
forty-two Brooklynites, and of these five are dis
trict leader? and a dozen were known to be politi
cally active.
The association declares that, though Civil Ser
vice rules demand the filing by the appointing
officer of a certificate shoeing the appointee's
qualifications and fitness for exempt posts, the
compliance of Controller Metz with this rule has
been farcical. One appointee having "an experi
ence of twenty years as manager of various busi
ness enterprises" was found to have spent many
years as a saloonkeeper. He got a job as cashier.
Another became an expert searcher in the depart
ment on a letter from William E. Melody, saying
that he had spoken "to the Senator about him."
Illegal transfers of cashiers are cited, and the
association mentions especially the removal of
Melody for "disloyalty" when that official deserted
McCarren in the Brooklyn fight, and the appoint
ment of Thomas J. Drennan in his place. The re
moval of Dr. Charles J. Pflug and of Henry H.
Torberg. also because of the McCarren fight, were
other instance:; noted by the association.
