The success of the Chelsea stable lIr
a stunning blow to the talent but n
KOdsend to the lity rThe books were
kartert up with IuTwt1ie r and Jam s

It may be Imagined the play on it was
light and ot tho piker variety

Frantic Newark Mothers in
Fear of Black Hand
Start a Panic
Scores of children were slightly In
jured and two little girls were badly
trampled In a panic at tim Seventh
Avenue School In Newark today due
to the circulation of a rumor that the
school wa to be blown up by the
Black Hand
For several days pant Black Hand
letters have been received by parents
and also by teachers The teacher
recognized some of the latter as the
work of mischievous scholars but the
mothers and father the majority of
them foreigner recently from Italy
and Southern Europe believed them to
be genuine threats from the dreaded
Though the children went to school
the same as usual scores of parents
accompanied them This was also the
case with three other Newark school
one at Franklyn another at Morton
and a tIlted at Jones street
But It was only In the Seventh ave
nue school that the principal called
upon the police to drtve the mothers
away Thoy had brought their children
to school but r fured to Icavo the neigh
borhood Their chattering and jabber
fnr drew a crowd and caused the dis
semination of many weird rumors
Women Overwhelm Police
As the windows of the schools were
side the
epen on the Seventh avenue
pupils could hear the cries and shouts
of tbe excited women and this caused
uneasiness In the classrooms Finally
Principal MCLaury became alarmed and
telephoned to Police Headquarters
Capt Brown of the Second Precinct I
found forty mothers gesticulating at
the entrance and with a squad of men
drove them away This only served to
Increase their hysteria however and
also to arouse the region about the
Scores ef mothers poured Into the
ctreet from neighboring tenements and I
the little band oX police were swept off
their feet I
Fire Drill Useless
There was a rush to the doors of tho
school and the principal felt that It
would be useless to continue school
any longer Several classes were al
ready in a ferment Using the fire drill
an effort was made to set the 1200
scholars out class by class The hys
teria of the mothers at the entrance
spread to the pupils within however
and presently there was a mad slam
The mothers rushed In as 4ho chil
dren rushed out and the confusion be
Mme a serious menace to life Many
children were being trampled when tho
reserves rushed to the door and swept
th mothers away allotting a free
exit for tho panicstricken children
One Victim May Die

hurt that they were taken to St Mich
ael Hospital are Antoinette Rugllo

Blaok Hand letters were reported to
hare been received today at the Mar
ket and Morton street schools all of

Hughes Forces Beaten After Day of
Excitement and Bitter Debate in
Senate Doubtful Senators Swing
ing to Racing Men
Senator Fancher Kidnapped to Help Defeat of
Measures but Turns Pp in Time to
Cast His Vote for ThemAnti
Forces to Try Again
I ALBANY April BThe AntiGambling Race Track bill was kilted
in the Senate late this afternoon
The vote was a tie 25 to 25
As the LieutenantGovernor who is the presiding officer tof the Sen
ate cannot cast the deciding vote on a bill the measure advocated by
Gov Hughes to end betting on the turf in this State was consequently I
defeated 1
Twentysix votes were necessary to pass the act and that numbte 4
had been claimed by Senators Raines and Agnew who led the antiJ i
gambling forces The racing men had declared all during todays
session of the Senate that they would at least have twentyfive votes 3
and they made good their prediction j1
Fuller and Taylor Democrats voted with the Hughes forces 1
for the bills while Burr Emerson Gilchrist Cassidy Wemple Grat
tan Knapp and Wilcox Republicans cast their ballots with the rac
ing contingent and against the bill f
While LieutGov Chanler has no vote on the final passage of
a bill but can vote on a motion asked the roll call on the Raines j
motion made early in the fight to lay the bill on the table It re
sulted in a tie as did the roll call on the motion to pass the bill The
LieutenantGovernor therefore cast the deciding vote in favor of
the Raines motion so that it was carried by a vote of 26 to 25
This means that Senator Agnew can call up his motion to re
consider the vote by which the bill failed to pass at any time He
must give such notice within three days He said this evening that
he would give his notice tomorrow
Gov Hughes was deeply chagrined when told of the failure of the
