cation of Contract On

Corporation Counsel John I'.
O'Urlen and members of his staff who
aro familiar with transit matters
were busily engaged to-day formulat
ing plans to carry out Mayor Ilylan's
orders that the subway contracts
shall bo revoked If it can legally be
dono and the operation of the sub-
wnys be assumed by the city. The
Corporation Counsel also communi
cated with District Attorney nanton
on the Mayor's surrsili " " t there
may bo a way to punish the subway
management for Its treatment of pa
trons by proceeding under the laws
prohibiting the main' ?-ca of
nuisances or "conspiring to Injure
the public health."
Mayor Hylan in a letter to Cor
poration Counsel O'Brien cites the
provisions of tho contract for tho
maintenance of the highest standard-
of operation, and tho provi . .
in the event of the company's non-
tulfllmcnt of the obligations, tho city
may thtough the Transit Commission
direct the company to cure the de
fault In ninety days, and In tho event
of failure enter upon and operate
tho lines.
"Tho company's admissions," h
wrote, "mako tho violations of the
contract solely a question of law, not
one of fact, and enables the commis
sion on behalf of tho city to act forth
with. I direct that you Immediately
call upon the Transit Commission to
forthwith Issue the orders."
CITY PREPARED TO OPERATE
THE LINES.
Ho added that "the city Is pre
pared" to operate tho lines, "both
with respect to furnishing safe and

Mayor cited the provisions of the

Woman Afflicted After The
atre Had Walked to
Hospital for Help.
HUSBAND FINDS HER.
When Nine-Year-old Betty Is
Brought In Mind Is
Cleared.
It was the sight of her nine-year-old
daughter, Betty, at her bedside in
Bellcvuc Hospital to-day, that brought
back ina swift rush all the faculties
of a woman whose condition of am
nesia had before that made impossible
her identification. She had been in
the hospital all night, her memory
crystal clear upon everything save her
name and address. When these had
been asked her, her only reply had
been to clasp hr head In her hands
and scream as if a pain had pierced
her brain.
The woman was Mrs. Angelina Kir
gan, wife of John It. Klrgan, a build
ing contractor, of No. 143 Kast 46th
Street, Brooklyn. Twenty-two years
ago she suffered a similar attack of
amnesia, and when sho failed to re
turn home last night her husband
began a seaich for her In the city
hospitals. He located her in Bellevue
to-day. It was there she had been
taken for treatment for the earlier
attack.
He took little Betty to the hospital
to-day and us he and she approached
Mrs. Kirgan's bed, there was no par
ticular sign of recognition in tho
mother's face. But the Instant she
saw tho child her memory returned.
"That's Betty!" she exclaimed.
"" T "member. I'm Angelina
. , i lie next instant the
little girl had run to the lied and flung
her arms about her mother, with
happy tears In tho ryes of both.
When the reunion of the f.imily was
complete, the hospital authorities
permitted Mr. Kirgan to take Ills wife
to their home.
Karly to-day the woman walked Into
Roosevelt Hospital. She said sho had
been to a theatre last night and was
on her way home when the dazzle and
glare ot lights at Times Square nf
fected her and she lost knowledge ot
her name and address. Sho even for
got what theatre she hud been to. A
cursory examination nt the. hospital
convinced the physicians she had diag
nosed her caso correctly and she was
sent to Bellevue.
There, she -aid, she was a victim
of neutltls. Her chums to speak tlu
ently In French, German and Dutch
were found to ln correct. To verify
her statement that she was a com
posor tho physicians took her to a
piano, where she t ntertalned them
with her own compositions and many
classical selections. Sho knew no
"jazz" or popular music. Sho.de
clared that on Oct. ltl lest her son
sang her own erslnn of the "Ave
Maria" lri St. l'.'itnrk's Cathedral.
The woman has a bciutitul olce and
sang many of her own Mings.

fit of those who felt Dr. Peebles was
present but whoso vision did not ma
terialize ltls spiritual body.
No attempt was mado to sot tho
stago for the materialization of Dr.
Peebles. Lights burned brightly and
entranco was free to those who de
sired to look on.
In an alcove where a small plat
form was calsed for speakers was a
small tabic for especially Invited

decked vacant chair set as for a
guest in the flesh.
Dinner was served In the usual
manner and at Its conclusion Dr. Do

addressing tho chair of roses, an
nounced Dr. Peebles would spcnlc
through his medlumshlp and that of
Herman Kuchn, tho "spirit guide,
friend and companion of Dr. Peebles
in physical life and In Astraland."
I lived for almost luu years in me
flesh and I still live in tho spirit,"
were the words attributed to Dr.
Peebles. "I promised I would be
among you and I am here. I want
you to know I will be ever near you
and do all in my power to advise you
and bring you to a better under
standing of tho things tho world will
come, to know.
"Do not lie misled, particularly by
the wave of psychtsm that Is sweep
ing tho world. Keep your feet nlways
on the earth. Investigate and search
out tho convincing truth. Do not for
get me."
Men distinguished in letters, relig
ion, science nnd research, accepted
the proceedings seriously.

my centennial lwyond tho gates but
that I would bo with the Longer Life
League 'In tho spirit' as well. It
made little difference to me on which
side of tho gate I mado the celebra
tlnn. Guy recalls that I told him a
couple of years ago that I was
anxious to explore tho moon and go
Journeying among the stars. Well, I
am getting my wishes gratified. And
the old rheumatism Is a thing of the

151 Cases in a Truck.
Tho bootleg supply of hooch In
Brooklyn -.-or, maybe, In Manhattan
and the Uronx was augmented to
day by 1,812 quarts or 151 cases which
were stolen last night from the Ocean
Storage Warehouse at No. 1G3 Pacific
Stieet, Broqklyn, whero it was stored
after ijji'bTUnltea States Marshal
James Power. Five armed men, using
a truck, ovurpowered two guardians
of the liquor and made a safe get
away. Robert Reardon, sixty years old,
has been acting ns night watchma i
for the Ocean Storage concern and
also for a warehouse at No. It;." Pa
cific Street, next door, conducted by
ohn Latimer. Periodically It was his
custom to make a cotnpleto survey of
both places.
Returning from nn inspection of the
Iji'lmer warehouse nt 11.30 o'clock
last night he found a door leading
from the office of the Ocean ware
house into the warehouse proper un
locked. Stepping In, he. was confront
ed by five men carrying revolvers nnd
flashlights. They took hlin to the run
way lending from tho wnrehousee to
tho street and there Reardon discov
ered that while he was In the Latimer
place tho thieves had forced open the
gato of the Ocean warehouse and
backed a truck In.
Under persuasion of the revolvers
Reardon walked to an automobile in
the rear of the runway and sat in the
tonncau. One thief stood guard over
him. The other four busily engaged
themselves in loading cases of whis
key on the truck.
At 11.15 o clock Latimer, who lives
in the neighborhood, arrived at his
warehouse to give it tho once over
before retiring. In search of Reardon
he found the office door of the Ocean
warehouse fqicn and nnteied.
The thieves suspended the opera
tion of loading the truck long enough
to escort litlmer to a seat besldi
lt"ardon. When all the whiskey had
hi pn .loaded Lntlmer and Reunion
v, re informed by the lesidir of th
thieves that a lookout concealed out
side would shoot If either of tlicrn
tried to' give nn alarm before the truck
was safely away.
Then the gates were opened and th
truck rolled out Into Pacific Street. It
was out of sight when Latimer and
Reardon reached tho sidewalk. l)c
teetlves investigated but could obtain
from Latimer and Reardon no cl
scrlption of tho thieves or the truck
because, they explained, they were
blinded by tho flashlights.
.Marshal Power said the stolen
whiskey is of very poor quiillt lit

Power I'nciflc tieaty wore voled down
ono after another by the Senate to

the little group of IrreconcIIables op
posed the Republican leadership of
Senator Lodge of Massachusetts to
vole with tiro icsorvaUonlsts.
With upwards of a score of reserva
tions still to be ncteil upon, It was
apparent that the final ratification
vote might be delayed several hours.
One of the largest crowds to be at
tracted by a Senate session In recent
years looked down on thn final scene
of the bitter treaty fight from packed
galleries and jammed tho corridors of
the Capitol, hoping to "get a peep In
side the Senate Chamber.
The capacity of thn amphitheatre
ovci looking tho well of the rhumlx'r

Inie the Senate met at noon, and an
extra guard of Capitol police was de
tailed to handle the eager crowds that
iM'sleged the gallery doors. On the
floor there was scarcely an empty
seat, virtually the entire Senate mem
liershlp lnMng present.
The llrst iiunllfylng declaration to
lie voted down was nn amendment by
Senator Robinson. Democrat, Arkan

treaty signatories against "uny secret

Six Democratic Senators Dial.
