i Suhxcay Train Huns from City Hall
to Xinety-sixth-Bt. in That Time.
With the c.is.f ar.d steadiness <>f the Empire
'State Express, a train of six earn, containing
one hundred and fifty newspaper men. shot
through the subway yesterday from Brooklyn
Bndge to Ninety-slxth-st. 1 . in 10 minutes and
■io seconds.
The train u.sed for '. ..- :rip was made up of
six heavy cars, with copper si-ies. of the type
recently in use on the Seebnd-ave, elevated
road. The start v.a« made at the City Hall
station. The train swung slowly around the
City Hall loop to the bridge, and at that point the
speed test began. Mr. Deyo hold a step watch.
and called off the tim* .:s each station ua«
passt-.1. a h. to u ejeed v.as reached In Ic^s than
3o seconds, and wai maintained uatil the curve
at Forty-STCor.d-sr. v.-as reachf-u. On account
of the steei pillars, which fl.\*hed by in flick
ering succession, the train seemed to be moving
faster than it actually was. The real estimate
of the train's e^eed could be had when passing
the stations. Tht bright sunlight, showing
through the glass roof on the white tiles, spread
through the subway for a short distance, and
the Bides of the tunnel could be plainly seen.
The train swayed only once. It occurred when
rounding the curve at Ti.ior. Hquar*. Gut.-sts
who were standing altout In groups at the double
seats were jolted off their feet and righted
again in the twinkling of an eve. Before they
had a chanre to wince, the train was plunging
on as steadily "as over. The fact that the trip
was a record run on a new road, lent some un
easiness, perhaps, to those who were jolted.
When the train reached N*inety-sixth-Ft. a
short eio]i was made and the interest of the
party centred on ih<- letord of Mr. De.vo'a stop
watrh, which showed that th>- run hai beet:
n:ade in tea minutes and ■forty-five seconds. A
slow run was made from SClnety-eixtb-st! t<» the
terminal on the West Sid-.-. The train then
went back to JClnety-slxtb-st. *:n<l switched to
the east Fid" tracks. The <.-;tr barns and shops

Washington. Oct. 3.— Postmaster General

Injuries from Fluoroscope Fatal to
Ediso n's A ssista nt.
Clarence M Dally, a young electrical engineer.
who had been a first assistant to Thomas A
Edison, died yesterday In East Orange from in
juries received •:: assisting the inventor. Mr.
Dally had been burned from experiments in con
nection with the fluoroscope and from acids
used in its manufacture: he had also received
burns from the machine Itself, having passed
his hands before the X-rays so continuously
that they became affected by It.
Seven years ago. while working with Mr.
Edison in the laboratory at West Orange. Mr.
Dally was forced to use many chemicals in the
experimental work with the fluoroscope. and
was badly burned on his hands. He suffered no
pain from these accidents, though his hands
looked as if th«y had been scalded.
Six months after the first indications of ap
parent maiding 'appeared h'.s hands began to
swell and emit a discharge, so that the elec
trician was prevented from keeping at hia work
continuously. He suffered thus for two years,
when he was enabled to go to Chicaffo, where
he obtained a place with th*> Sunbeam Incan
descent I-imp Company, and where he hoped to
t*> benefited by the change of air. While In the
West he was constantly under surgical treat
ment, and at different times sent to Dr. William
R Graves, of East Orange, photographs of his

should be aliowed to enjoy the elective franchis?
Mr. Parker not only refused to answer, but
showed disj.rrs.sure at the attempt to secure an
expression of his views, saying that his letter of
acceptar.ee covered the question. A careful
examination of the letter fails to show where
"that poir.t has been covered."
The keynote of the Democratic eampalgm Li
the aEssed unconstitutionally of certain acts
by the Roosevelt administration. Changes ars
rung on this day by day. Liberal portions of the
Democratic campaign textbook are devoted to it.
and last, but not least, a circle of well known
Democratic lawyers of th:3 city, organized under
the name of Parker Constitution Club, has adver
tised that it proposes to point out various un
constitutional acts of President Roosevelt an£
his Cabinet, and has made one effort already.
The Parker Constitution Club has the advice
and support cf the Democratic candidate for
President. The club waa named in his honor.
The organizers include the following advocates
and apologists of ex-Judge Parker: James C.
