ON PUTNAM LOOP
Believed to Be Backing Poti
.tion to Switch Railroad at
rouoiiKKtrstc, Sept t. A petition is
being circulated at rocantlco Hilts to
have the loop on the Putnam Railroad
between East View and rocantlco Hills
eliminated. This Is what John D. Rocke
feller has l"ng desired, for the railroad
cuts through the centre of his property.
While Mr. Rockefeller has not signed
the petition. It Is believed that he Is
backing It. Between East View and To.
antlro Hills there Is a horseshoe turn
and tho grade Is heavy. This causes the
engines, especially those of the freight
trains, to labor hard, and thn noise Is
most annoying to Mr. Rockefeller.
Wealthy residents. Including Dr.
Charles C. nrnce. Samuel Ullman. Mrs.
Harry Allen Grant, James Butler, Mrs.
David I.. Milton and others, are believed
to be favorable to th petition, for the
railroad runs past their homes and they
dislike the noise.
Tarrytown also would like the tracks
removed so It rnuld ralso the dam on Its
lakes from which It gets its water sup
ply. If the petition Is successful, the sta
tloes at Tarrytown Heights, Tower Hill
and rocantlco Hills n III be abandoned and
a stage line will bo run from I'ocantlco
Hills to East View.
It is said that If the Public Service
Commission orders the change Mr.
Rockefeller will give land along the
foot of Buttermilk Hill on the extreme
west side of his property for a track to
connect Eastvlew with Hrlarcllfr Manor,
This would Ktralghten out the Putnam
line and eliminate grade. It would also
shorten the line.
While the elimination of the Putnam
road would be nf great benefit to Mr.
Rockefeller, he will not win without a
hard fight. Many of the old residents
oppose wiping the village off the map,
and even If Mr. Itockefeller owns more
than half of the hamlet he has made fa
mous a long light Is expected.

DEMANDS $5,000 FOR HIS BATH. ,
Charle Both Pars V. M. C. A. and
Three Others for Ilia I)onalni.
One of the biggest bills ever put In for
a bath came to light yesterday In the
Supreme Court, when Charles Both
brought suit ngalnM the Young Men's
Christian Association, Edward Mc'"or
mack. Daniel Holland anil John B. Hrlt
taln for 15,000.
It wns an Involuntary bath, said Both,
nnd the defendants neglected to put n
bathing suit on him before they doused
him In Lake Osca wanna, where the Y. M.
C A. camp Is held every summer. Just
why Both was seized and ducked, the
court papers do not say, but they record
thot he was assaulted, pushed, pulled,
dragged, catapulted ond projected Into
the colli waters nf Oscawann.i.
He lost a great deal of dignity and ac
quired n store of mortification as result
of this treatment, he said, and the three
men named In the suit went around camp
and told everybody about It, which made
things nil the worse for Both
Having been assigned to o tent In the
camp ny tnc officials, Itotn said mat tne
Y. M. c. A. should have protected him
from "unjustified assault."

Averts Walkout of 400,000

Debate Precedes Roll Call
WASHINGTON. Sept. 2. There will be no railroad
strike. The threatened walkout of 400,000 trainmen has
been called off. Telegrams went out from the four brother
hood leaders to-night to the 640 local chairmen cancelling
the strike order which was to have gone into effect at 7
o'clock Monday morning.
This action was taken after the Senate of tho United
States had fulfilled its part of the bargain by which the Ad
ministration has secured from the four brotherhoods the
promise of temporary peace. The vote was 43 to 28, and tho
roll call, showing how the Senators voted, will be found in
nnother column of The Sun.
The decision of the trainmen's chiefs to persist in having
their strike order stand, even after Congress had nnsscd tha
eight hour law to hold up the

ine oiu was cnangea to-nignt, several hours after the bill
had been passed by the Senate: The reason the labor leaders
decided that they would call off the strike before the Presi
dent's signature had been obtained was that the labor men
realized to-night how bad an impression such an action would
leave on the public mind.
Senate Is Warned
nity und traditions of the Senate fell

strike might hang upon tho slightest
