JU&ers. was killed, and P. Hihman Bird, a
■tapson of C. T. Cook, president of the Tiffany
Compa"T of New-Tork. was seriously injured
in an atitomobile accident about a mile from
here this morning. Both men were pinioned
under th» machine for twenty-five minutes,
Kidd bcir.g dead hofore he was taken from
under the overturned car.
Bird is president of the senior class in
prince-tea University. This morning he started
for Princeton from his summer home at El
t)ero3 in a 20-hor*<epower car, accompanied by
XIM who had l->e«r. his chauffeur during the
fnmmer. Mr. Bird intended to make the run
to Princeton, to be on hand for the openin? of
the ur.ive-fity to-morrow. When the automo
bile parsed irou hero Mr. Bird was handling
it. and it Is asserted that he was net running
acre than fifteen miles an hour.
About a rcile beyond here Mr. Bird turned out
to pass tha carriage of I>r. G. H. Franklin. Just
then a cow stepped Into the road directly in
front of the machine. To avoid killing the
cow Mr. Bird turned suddenly to the left, and
th« car crashed Into a telegraph pole and upset
across c. flitch, pinning the two men be
jieath it.
•Wiian the em&sh oame Kldd struck the tele
«a#h pole, his ehoulder was broken and there
*r« indications that his neck was dislocated.
Be lived for nearly a quarter of an hour after
the aocident. speaking- to Bird several time*
jjefore he died. At one time ho suggested to
the rescuers th&t th&y sro to the railroad nearby
ana get Umber to pry up the machine. Mr.
Bird was struck In the side by a wheel of the
car. his hip was bruised and his faoe a trifle
#caxred. but there were no ptber signs of injury.
Th« physicians fear that Mr Bird ls hurt in
ternally, and have been watching him closely
lor signs of peritonitis. Mr. Bird's hip is in
euch a condition that he cannot move it. Ha
suffere-1 severely during the day. but to-night
he eaid he was without pain. Mr. Bird escaped
more serious injury by being thrown further
Into the ditch than Kidd. thereby relieving him
from the weight of the machine, which -was
pressing heavily upon hie chauffeur.
Dr. Franklin was the first to reach the scene
of the accident, turning his horse as soon as
te heard the shouts of the Injured men. Flnd-
Ing that he could <lo nothing alone, he brought
men from the villas©, who wprked vigorously to
release the imprisoned men. A team of horses
wa« obtained, and the machine was moved suf
ficiently to permit the removal of Mr. Bird and
the body of his companion. Dr. Franklin drove
Mr. Bird to the village, where he Is quartered
e.t a local hotel- It is said he cannot be moved
for several days. .
The news of the accident soon reached Prince
ton, and a number of the students who had re
turned from their vacations came here and of
fered their services. Mr. Bird's brother-in-law,
Clarence Porter, of New-Tork, chartered a

Panama, Sept. 19. — Unconfirmed reports reached

Political Activity of the Man Reported
To Be Dictator of the Country.
General Rafael Reyes has been President of Co
lombia a little more than a year. He was staying
In this city when the elections were held in the
republic, having gone to Washington with General
Jorge Holguin and General Pedro Nel Ospina. as
commissioner from Colombia, in connection with
the secession of Panama-
General Reyes Is a member of the Conservative
party, which has been in power for more than
twenty-ore years In Colombia, and has for many
years been active in the turbulent politics of the
country. He was formerly Colombian Minister to
Paris, and has been regarded as one of the ablest
diplomats in tho service of his country.
While there were several candidates In the field
at the election which resulted in his choice as
chief executive, the opposition to General Reyes
was never of a serious character. He was sup
ported by both wings of the Conservative party—
tha Historicals and the Nationalists. His prom

Being a military man. President Reyes has ruled
with an iron hand, and always has been more or

Halifax, Sept. 19.— The North German Lloyd
steamer Bremen, Captain R. Nierich, from New-
York on September 14, bound for Bremen, was
toxred here to-day by the British tank steamer
Luclgen, from Shields on September 5, for Phil
adelphia. The port tailshaff. of the Bremen
broke on the afternoon of September 15, and
the accident damaged the starboard propeller.
Attempts which were made by the engineers
to repair the damage were unsuccessful, and the«
steamer rolled helplessly in a heavy swell.
At S a. m. on September 16 the Lucigen -was
sighted and answered the Bremen's signals of
distress. The Lucigen took the steamer in "tow
at noon, but the vessels had not gone far before
the lines parted. This caused a delay of four
hour?, and it was 5 o'clock before the steamers
started again. They headed for Halifax and
arrived here this afternoon. Besides a large
general cargo, the Bremen has thirty-nine sa
loon, seventy-three second cabin and fifty-six
steerage passengers.
To-morrow divers -will make sin examination
of the steamer. The Bremen may be detain**!

Bremen felt no concern, as the weather wu<i

Says Latter Was Insolent — Antici
pates Razor with Bullet.
New-Brunswick, N. J., Sept. 19 (Special) —
"Now. you nigger. I'll teach you how to talk to
a white man!" cried Charles E. Napp, formerly
a Southerner, now a real estate broker, of No.
949 Broadway, New-York, this morning, as he
discharged a revolver at Daniel Coleman, a
negro hostler employed in the livery stable of
\V. S. Rule, at Metuchen. The bullet struck
Coleman in th»: chest anc" glanced into his arm.
The trouble arose over the negro's alleg-ed in
solence to the broker. Napp was conveying a
Shetland pony from New-York to his home at
Trenton, and, the journey having tired the ani
mal, its owner stopped at Metuchen and made
arrangements for shipping the pony the rest of
the way by rail. In driving up to Rule's stable, I
Napp shouted for Coleman to come ou: and hel;>
him unhitch. The negTO was busy at the time.
"Oh, I'll come out when I get ready," he re
sponded, and the reply nettled Napp. He spoks I
sharply to Coleman, and the latter retorted in j
kind. Napp says the man threatened him with
a razor. Then Napp, who was unarmed, hurried
to a hardware store, purchased a revolver, and,
returning to the stable, shot Coleman.
Napp was placed under arrest. He telephoned
to his nearest friend, E. L. Kerns, of Trenton, to
get bail.

J. B. Leavitt, McClellan Man in
C. U., Gets Word.
Justice William J. Gaynor, in a letter to John
Brooks Leavitt, of the Citizens Union city com
mittee, says that he is not a candidate for
Mayor, and that his name is not to be used.
Largely on account of the fact that Mr. Leavitt
Who is being considered as fusion candidate fof
Mayor despite his expressed desire not to
is a strong advocate of the re-election of Mayor
McClellan and last winter In the Citizens Union
introduced a resolution calling for his indorse
ment by the union, the letter received by Mr.
Le^vitt from Justice Gaynbr is not regarded as
either important or conclusive.
The Republican conferrees, representing the
element which will contribute the preponderance
of votes against the Tammany ticket on No
vember 7, have no doubt that when the Mayor
alty nomination Is offered to Justice Gaynor. If
It is. It will evoke from him a response totally
different from the one received by Mr. Leavitt
and used with suspicious fervor by the element
In the Citizens Union hostile to the nomination
of Mr. Gaynor.
The letter from Justice Gaynor to Mr. Leavitt
is as follows:
My Dear Leavitt:
In answer to your inquiry. I can only say that
on the day I arrived from Europe certain emi
nent gentlemen saw me and requested me to
allow my name to be presented to and agreed
upon for the fusion Mayoralty conference I
felt constrained to decline, ard my determina
tion was communicated to them. All of that
occurred last week. I <1M COt f«-el that it was
for me to make a public announcement of the
fact, but you can show this letter if you wish.
My name la not to be used. Yours sincerely,
"What else could Justice Gaynor say?" was
the universal question among tha Republican
conferrees yesterday when Mr. Leavitt's status
became fully known. When seen at his office,
R_ Fulton Cutting said that Mr. Leavitt had
acted on his own initiative in getting from Mr.
Gaynor an expression of his views previous to
official action by the important factors In tha
anti-Tammany movement.
'•It should be borne in mind," said a Repub
lican conferree. "that Mr Cutting, for some
reason or other, •we do not know what, is hos
tile to Justice Gayr.or. He and his immediat"
friends dominate the Citizens Union and all its
committee*. The committee or. nominations of
the union, acting In sympathy with the wishes
of Mr. Cutting, pappeo a resolution declaring
that Mr Gaynor was not an available candi
date. The nigh; thai Mr. Cutting and hi? friends
bolted the fusion i onference the sentiment wa3
overwhelmingly in favor of nominating Mr.
Gaynor. Mr. Cutting discovered this eariy, and
walked out of the fusion conference. giving as
a reason that the Republicans would not dis
cuss candidates nnd were wasting time.
"At th» meetlns: of the Citizens Union last
ni"*ht President Cutting received a ba.-khanded
indorsement oi his action, the spirit of the reso
lution which was adopted being clearly a notice
to him to go bark to the fusion conference and
work for a winning anti-Tammany ticket. The
committee on nominations met this afternoon,
and the flrst step in the ostensible carrying out
of the spirit of the resolution was to flash a
lptt^r from Mr. Leavitt, an avowed McClellan
advocate which, from one point of view, Justi
fles the Cutting coi?rie in its hostility to the
Judge. M „ .
Thi? whole business savors of dismgenuou;»
nesa and ward politics, and is unworthy hlgh
mlnded men. Judge Gaynor is admittedly the
most available candidate to run against Mc-
Clellan, and the rank and file of the Citizens
Union are aware of this fact. They let Mr.
Cutting down easily on Monday night, but at
the next meeting, if the present tactics are con
tinued, there will be an indignation meeting in
the citizens- Union, and a resolution exceedingly
specific in its terms will b<? passed. Mr. Cutting
Will have to obey the spirit actuating the rank
and file in their desire to put a winning anti-
Tammany ticket in the field, or the Union will go
to pieces.

committee on nominations of the CtUsena Union,
