?najorities in excess of 1,000 and a

The small Socialist vote was a sur?

1,200 Socialists were added to the So- j

in the 19th Assembly District, Brook- j

There the Democrats elected Benjamin

polled 1,655. As in the other five dis?
tricts, the vote in the 19th was about
half what it was a year ago.
The elections yesterday were devoifT
of disorder of any kind. Several poll?

at 6 o'clock as the law requires. Some
of the Socialists carried their com?

to prevent their followers from voting.

Inquiries for the best road to Phila?
delphia, regardless of length of trip,
bring out that at present the preferred
way is through Staten Island to Perth
Amboy and thence over the recently
repaired bridge to South Amboy.
From there to Keyport and Freehold
to Lakewood is the first stage. Beyond
Lakewood to Camden, the motorist
goes by way of ?New Egypt and Mount
Holly. This road is 109 miles long,
about five mile? longer than the way
through ?New Brunswick, Penns Neck
and Trenton. The latter road is
rough and in poor condition. Except
for the possibility of rain making bad
the stretch of gravel between Lake
wood and Camden, the longer road has
all. the better of it as far as road con?
ditions are concerned.

With agitation being made in ? num?

it i? more than likely that legislation

Soldier Bandit Is Held |
Without Bail as Slayer
Van Reed Shows No Emotion
When Arraigned for Murder
of 34th Street Tailor
Harry Van Reed, the soldier bandit
who Wednesday entered the tailor shop
of Max Rabinowitz at 233 West Thirty- ,
fourth Street and, after failing to rob
the place, shot and -killed Rabinowitz
and seriously wounded his wife, Bmma, :
was held without bail yesterday on a
charge of murder.
Emotionless and apparently interest?
ed only in the legal proceedings accom?
panying his arraignment, he said he
was thirty-six years old and lived at j
52 St. Nicholas Avenue.
While he was in West Side Court
Magistrate Tobias received word that
Mrs. Rabinowitz's condition was un?
changed and that possibility of her re?
covering was slight.
Assistant District Attorney Hennis,
of the Homicide Bureau, told the court
that he would present the evidence to
the grand jury to-day, and expected an
indictment by to-night.

Cars Stoned by
Two Attacks Are Made and
Several Persons Injured;
Police Scatter Crowds
and Arrest Two Men
Strikers Jeer Benefit Pay
Help Is Demanded From
Gompers as Union Offers
$5 to Married Men Only
Crowds of strikers or their sympa
' thizers attacked trolley cars in Brook?
lyn yesterday for the first time since
the early days of ' the strike. Two
cars were attacked, both in the Wil
liamsburg section. Nearly 2,000 police
who hitherto have been on strike duty
were called yesterday to Ihe wrecked
Wall Street district.
Several hundred persons, most of
whom were throwing stones, bricks or
bottles, brought a Nostrand Avenue car,
to a stop at Park Avenue and thronged
about it while the motorman and con?
ductor sought shelter inside. The
siege was kept up until six cars had
; been stalled, all of which were tar?
gets for the mob's missiles.
Patrolmen Bearens and Gleeson
I seized three of the attackers and stood
guard over them with drawn revolvers.
This aroused the crowd to a more angry
pitch and jeers and missiles were being
directed at the patrolmen when the \
reserves from the Vernon Avenue po- '
lice station came up on the run and
dispersed the crowd.
The prisoners said they were Joseph
and James Fanigleiti, of 23?3 East
?Fifteenth Street, Brooklyn, and-Joseph
Venterello, of 804 Bedford Avenue,
Brooklyn. None of them was on strike.
Joseph Fanigleiti and Joseph Venterello
were charged with disorderly conduct
and James Fanigleiti with malicious
A Union Avenue car became a target
I for stones and brickbats at Union and
j Driggs avenues. Louis Levenroth, the.
? motorman, fell beneath the hail of
? missiles, and the crowd surged about
the car, threatening to lynch him and
the conductor. Reserves from the
Greenpoint and Bedford Avenue police
stations dispersed the mob. Levenroth
was able to proceed with his car after
an ambulance surgeon had patched him
About 2,000 B. R. T. strikers attended
a meeting in Brooklyn Labor Llceum,
Myrtle and Willoughby avenues, and
cheered when James Sheridan, chair?
man of the meeting, directed them to
form in line for the payment of a
The din was redoubled and reversed
in tone, however, when the men discov
| ered that the maximum payment was
only $5, and that only married men
were entitled to receive that. SeVeral
flung down the $5 bill offered them,
saying in disgusted accents that they
would be ashamed to take such a sum
home to their wives. About 1,600, how?
ever, waited until they had pocketed
the money to express their disappoint?
ment. P. J. Shea, vice-president of the
union, who was standing in the front
of the hall, was surrounded by clamor?
ous strikers, who shouted inquiries as
to why Samuel Gompers didn't help
them. Mr. Shea's only response was:
"What can I do?"
The B. R. T. reported to the Public
Service Commission that its subway
and elevated service was 81 per cent
normal yesterday. Two hundred and
ten trains, composed of 1,073 cars, were
in operation, an increase of seven
trains over Wednesday's figures. The
796 surface cars in operation were
seventy-seven more than were in ser?
vice Wednesday. Seven surface lines
were in operation last night and night
service will be started on another to?
night. The Wilson Avenue line which
will be operated to-day will be the
fifty-second of its sixty-seven surface
lines the B. R. T. has put into service
since the strike began.
In spite of the abnormal call made
on the Police Department by the Wall
Street explosion, patrolmen were on
guard throughout the day on the trol?
ley lines and" subways in Brooklyn.
Officials of the B. R. T. said the
company had recruited a permanent
force, exclusive of strike breakers,
which numbered 4,600. Three hundred
and thirty-six strikers returned to work
Wednesday, it wa3 said, and about 400

Heedless of his wound, Gordon broke j
away and ran to Herman Zeller's tea
room at 97 Forsyth Street, in front of
which several men were sitting. One
of them interrupted Gordon to tell him
he was stabbed. At sight of the blood
Gordon fell senseless.
The three men had pursued him and '
came up at this point, causing those '
seated outside the tea room to take
hasty refuge inside. Mase Renner, of I
190 Forsyth Street, one of those seated :
inside, ran out, however, on learning)
of the attack on Gordon and grappled i
with a tall man he met at the door.
The other two ran and were pursued ;
by the group, which a moment before
had fled from them. In the chaBe one
of the pursuers fired five shots from a
revolver and Matthew Collins, of 242 I

station, charged with felonious assault '
and attempted robbery. Collins, who ?
I was taken to Gouverneur Hospital, also
j was arrested. Gordon also was taken j

The Little Rabbit Has Other Visitors
By Thornton W. Burgess
When Fox or Wolf attempts a grin
His teeth he cannot keep within,.
Just seeing Peter Rabbit had made
Peter's little son the most homesick
little Rabbit in all the Great World.
There he was a prisoner in Farmer
Brown's h?n yard. To be sure, it was
a nice big yard for so email a Rabbit,
and until Peter had appeared and talked
to him from the outside he had not
' been, unhappy. In fact, he hadn't
i thought much about the matter. But
, that visit from his father had made
l him understand just what it means to
j be a prisoner, und he longed for home
! and the dear Old Briar-patch so that
i his heart ached.
! From far down on the Green Mead?
ows toward the dear Old 'Briar-patch
j the great voice of Bowser the Hound
j came to him as he crouched in the box
which was now his home in a corner of
the hen yard. Bowser's voice grew
fainter and fainter. Finally the little
Rabbit could not hear it at all. For
the time being he forgot his own per?
sonal affairs in a new anxiety. lie was
worried now about his father who, you
know, was Peter Rabbit. It was Peter
whom Bowser had been chasing.
The little Rabbit came out of the
box and hopped over to the wire fence.
He got just as close to it as he could.
Then he sat up to listen. It seemed to
him that he could hear better sitting
up. But there was no longer any sound
of Bows&r's great voice. Tho little
Rabbit looked up at the Btars and
wished that they could tell him what
had happened down there on the Green
?Meadows. They must know, for they
could look down and see all things be?
low. Had Bowser caught Peter Rab
! bit, or had Peter reached the dear Old
! Briar-patch? It would fee the most
j dreadful thing that ever was if his
' father, Peter Rabbit, had lost his life.
I The little Rabbit swallowed very hard,
indeed, and two big tears rolled down
"If anything has happened to him it
will be all my fault," he sobbed. "Bow?
ser the Hound would not have found
him if he hadn't come up here to see
me.. Oh, why, why did I ever run
, "Well, well, well!" exclaimed a sharp
! voice, so close that the little Rabbit
? jumped and ran a few steps before
I even looking to see who the speaker
might be. "Well, well, well! If here
isn't a little cry-baby!"
Just outside that wire fence sat
; Reddy Fox, and he was grinning as he
| looked in through the wire netting.
There was such a hungry look in Red
! dy's eyes that the little Rabbit ahiv
; ered. Then it came over him that he
? was safe, and it was that wire netting
i that made him safe. Not even the dear
' Old Briar-patch was quite so safe a
place as that hen yard. A great glad?
ness that he was inside it, Instead of
outside It, filled him, and he winked
away the tears. He even hopped a lit?
tle nearer the fence and made a face
at Reddy Fox. Reddy merely grinned
more broadly than before. You see, he
knew exactly how that little Rabbit
Just tuen a low growl caused Reddy
to jump just as the little Rabbit had
jumped when Reddy had first spoken
Reddy snarled and backed away. Still
snarling, he turned and trotted away,
and Old Man Coyote took his place
close to the wire fence and looked
through it at the little Rabbit.
"So here is the young runaway for
whom we have been looking," said he,
and tried to make his voice sound
pleasant. "Too bad! Too bad! If only
I had found you this wouldn't have
happened. It is a dreadful thing to be
a prisoner. 1 know, for I was one once.
Too bad! Too bad!"
Aguin the little Rabbit made a face.
"It isn't too bad at all," he declared.
"It is a great deal better to be a pris?
oner in Farmer Brown's hen yard than
to be in your stomach, Old Man Coy?
ote, so don't waste any pity on me."
Old Man Coyote grinned. "That de?
pends on the point of view," said he.
"Now, I would much rather have you
in my stomr.ch than see you a prisoner
in this hen yard. But perhaps that
will come later." Ho grinned again
and trotted away in the darkness.
