ML CAUSED ROUBLE PEOPLE WOULD NOT PAY IT THE COMPANY TOOK LAW IN OWN HANDS AND MANY WERE SENT TO JAIL AND OTHERS SWITCHED ON SIDE TRACKS. Publishers' Press I New York, Aug. 12. Scenes of dis order seldom wit nested in the Metrop olis, followed the attempt today of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company to enforce its right to chaw a ten cent fare to and from Coey Island, in the face of a decision by Justice of the Supremo Court William J. (iaynor, in which the latter held that the compa ny had no right to enforce! any such extra fare, and that all that it. could legally collect from passen gers was the one live cent fare. The decision was printed In all of the newspapers this morning, and a: a re sult, many laboring, men started with their families to make the trip to the island secure in the belief that they could afford to do so. With a ten cent fare, a man with a family of live would have to pay one dollar to go to and from the island, besides the fare in Manhattan borough, and this is a very large sum to the dwellers in tene ments. The chiefs of the railway company, however .uTter an all night conference .decided that they would not recognize the decision of the court but would defy it and compel all pas sengers to pay the extra nickel. When the ilrst of the early morn ing trains bringing the crowds from the torrid city, put in an appearance at the second fare point King's Highway the passengers found as sembled there all of the force of spec ial police ami Inspectors or the rail way company, and the conductors at once went through the care and de manded a second fare. Many of the patrons were supplied with copies of the decision of Justice Gaynor and displayed theso to the conductors, but nil were referred to a region much warmer than was New York, and told If they did not give the second nick el they would have to get off the car. Borne stood out, but were at once prasped by the uniformed employes of the corporation and hauled into the street, while the trains went on with out them. Where they showed right they were promptly arrested by the Bpecial police, and even by members of the regular force, all of whom seem ed anxious to aid the company. . On some of the lines, however, the Inspectors adopted different tactics. Where it was found that a majority of the passengers would not submit to the extortion, the cars were ordered Fide tracked and there they were held In the broiling sun, which caused great suffering to many women and children.

Ware Had a Unique and Interesting Sermon Last Niqht. QUESTION ON THE TRUSTS MINISTER TELLS HIS AUDITORS THAT IT IS NOT RIGHT FOR A FEW MEN TO CONTROL MON EY OF THE COUNTRY. The Rev. Alfred T. Ware nddiv.ssed a large and appreciative audience last night, at the open air services of the Fast Main Street Friends' church. The Rev. Mr. Ware's sermon was along a cosmopolitan line, and instruc tive in the happenings and events of the day. Questions of all sorts have been dropped into a box, which he had prepared for their reception, relating to various questions of religious life and the attending influences of mod ern events upon it. There were' some good solid and com rehensive interrogations submitted, which the Rev. Mr. Ware answered concisely and completely. In answering the question; "'"mould the trusts control the nation or should the nation control them?" he discours ed ;it some length, stating that the large sums of money, which tire con trolled by the trusts naturally lend them unusual and extraordinary pow er. He dwelt on the banking sys tems of the country, showing that each bank has some other bank in a large city with which it has arrange ments for deposits .eventually accumu lating a large amount of money in the New York banks. These New York banks are controlled by a few direc tors who are interested in the large concerns of the country, and thereby have some access to the money. He stated most, decidedly that it was not a good thing for money to be in the hands of a few ,and that any intellect ual man on a few moments' considera tion will arrive at the same opinion. In regard to a question as to the fu ture of Socialism, in this country and American spirit, he said that the lines which Marks the originator of theor etical socialism had set forth, were not being followed out, and that lines are continually being changed as the conditions of the various countries call for them. He also held that the "American Spirit" has made a strong nation, because it had that attribute of "doing things."

President half turned looked over hitf shoulder, and then walked out of tho church.

Miss Case was prevented from then following the president and his family to their carriage by the secret service men adopting the same tac tics they used in church. After the service Miss Case visited the homo of Squire Franklin, the local justice of the peace, In quest of a warrant for usher Duffy, who she claims han dled her roughly in escorting her to the rear of the church and broke her watch chain. "I have walked off a pair of shoes and worn out a dress since coming here in my efforts to see the presi dent," said Miss Case after the ser vice, "but I am by no means discour aged and intend to remain right hero until I do succeed."
