On Democratic Ticket, if Possible —
If Not, on His Own.
District Attorney Jerome is going to be a can
didate for Ooeernor. His friends will try to
obtain * him the regular Democratic nomina
tion. If he does rot get it, he will run as an
independent candidate, in the belief that he can
repeat on a larger scale his remarkable success
of last fall.
He will not have to resign his office to run
as an independent candidate for Governor. He
Is confident either of winning or of defeating
Hearst. If he can be the indirect means of
beating Hearst his lease of official life will re
main undisturbed. Hearst is pretty sure to re
move him If he over gets the power. Jerome
will not sit supinely by and see him clothed with
the necessary power.
Jerome's allies will be Mayor McClellan, who
trill control pome of the delegates in the state
convention. Representative "Big Tim" Sullivan,
blacklisted by Hearst as the "lord high pro
tector of crooks and criminals"; Senator Me-
Carrer. of Brooklyn, on whom war has been de

Novelist and Playwright Expires
Suddenly in London.
London. Aug. 13.— Pearl Mary Teresa
Craigie (John Oliver Hobhes). the novelist and
dramatist, died in her sleep this morning from
htart disease. Her death was unexpected, she
having been apparently perfectly well when she
retired last night. Mrs. CraJgie had been spend
ing a fortnight at her home. Steephlil Castle,
Ventnore. Isle of Wight. She left there on Sun
day afternoon to keep an engagement in Lon
Mrs. Craigie had just spent a fortnight with
her parents at Ventnor. and was in excellent
spirits and busily planning future work. Reach
ing London on Sunday evening, she complained
Of feeling tired and went early to bed. leaving
orders not to be be disturbed until she rang in
the morning. At 9 o'clock this morntn<» the ser
vants became anxious and went to tier room,
where they found her dead. The doctor who was
summoned was unable to give a certificate of
burial, though the indications pointed to heart
disease. Mrs. Craigie had had no occasion to
consult a doctor for some time previously, and
hence it will be necessary to hold an inquest.
Mrs. Craigie's parents, who have been sum
moned to London, are heartbroken over tha
news. Her father, in an interview, said:
My daughter was perfectly well when she left
Ventnor. and was looking forward to a visit to
Scotland on Wednesday with her son. We had
not the slightest anxiety on her account and she
had made not -a single complaint.
It was gathered from her father's remarks
that, though Mrs. Craigie had enjoyed better
health In the last year or two. she had felt the
strain of heavy work and literary engagements,
and had suffered on more than one occasion
from heart attacks.
London. Aug. 14. — The news of the death of
Mrs. Craigie reached only two or three of the
London morning newspapers. These journals
express deep regret at the untimely loss of a
popular writer and charming personality. 'The
London Tribune" editorially says:
There are greater names among fiction writ
ers, yet few. whose death would strike us as a
loss so painful and irreparable. She had at least
given two great books to English literature, but
her style and outlook on life were still unfixed,
and the development of her genius seemed 'to
show much greater possibilities. •
John Oliver Hobbes was the pen' name of Mrs.
Craigie, who ranked high among the popular writ
ers of the day. She was born November 3. 1867,
the eldest daughter of John Morgan Richards,
who was the son of the late Rev. Dr. James Rich
ards and Laura Hortense Arnold, of this city. Dr.
Richards's wife was the granddaughter of the Hon.
Peter Spearwater, who represented Shelbounie In
the Colonial Parliament of Great Britain at Hali
fax for twenty-five years.
When Mrs. l*raigle was nineteen she was mar
ried to Reginald Walpole Craigie, grandson of
Colonel Craigie, of the Bengal Military Board.
She was educated privately in Boston, London and
Paris. Mrs. Craigie. showed a literary tendency
early in life, though her works did not attract at
tention until 1891. In 1892. after much study and
consideration, Mrs. Craig!.' became a Roman Cath
Threes-ears later Mrs Craigie was divorced from
| her husband and got the custody of their only
child, John Churchill Craigie, now nineteen years
old. Her father. John Morgan Richards, is a pros
perous merchant, whose business took him to Lon
don years ago. Although a business man. he
formed -many literary acquaintances, and his
daughter grew up in an atmosphere of culture.
Only recently he wrote a book of reminiscences
which attracted much attention.
Mrs. Craigie turned to the drama In recent years,
and wrote several successful plays. She was part
author of "The Bishop's Move," which had a suc
cessful run in London and -New York, and "The
I Flute of Pan." She also wrote "The Ambassa
dor" and "The Wisdom of the Wise." Among her
other writings were "Some Emotions and a Moral,"
"The Sinner's Comedy" and "School for Saints."
She lived abroad after her marriage, but vis
ile* this country from time to time, and was always
interested in affairs pertaining to her native^coun
i try After her visit In November. I** 1 - she lect

View of Crowd.
(By Telegraph to The Tribune]
Elizabeth. X. J.. Aug. 13.— Four schoolboys

vated tracks In this city this afternoon. The
victims were Walter U. Griffin, ten years old.

Grand street, and William Daubner, eight years
old, of No. I."*; Catharine street, all of this city.
The four boys had gone out to get a Job de
livering soap powder wrappers, for which work
they were to get outing caps. They were walk
ing the ties of the railroad track, which at this
point crosses v bridge over ih>* Jersey Central
tracks, when the eastbound Philadelphia flyer
rushed down upon them. There was no chance
for the lads to escape, as the roadbed at that
point is too narrow.
Two of them grasped the iron fence which
runs alongside the tracks, thinking tn that way
to save their lives.' They were torn front it and
jrround to death beneath the ponderous wheels
of the engine. Their bodies were thrown to the
Central Railroad track, twelve feet below. The
head of one of the victims was carried on the
pilot of the locomotive nearly one hundred feet,
to where the other two boys were overtaken and
killed. Their bodies were t tssed high In the air
and rolled to the foot of the embankment.
One of the bodies landed in Broad street, Eliza
beth's main business thoroughfare. Tlje accWent
was witnessed by scores of people, who were hor
rified at the sight. The mangled bodies of the
victims were picked up and removed to Joseph S.
Stlner's morgue. It was nearly four hours later
when the bodies were identified. Michael Grif
fin, father of Willie Griffin, feinted, and a doc
tor had to be summoned to attend him. Then
he threatened to kill himself. He is an employe

In an alarm. The Belmont employes and tho
Babylon Fire Department responded The fire
men were powerless to save the stable and pad
dock building, but aided the employes In savin?
the adjoining buildings. It was feared tiie cot
tages would take fire, but by prompt work this
was prevented. The assistant trainer had
taken some of the horses to the track a short
time before the tire, and the other seventeen
were led from the stable. All escaped injury
except Lord of the Vale, who sustained a slight
cut on the leg.
The loss was reported to Mr. Belmont at
Saratoga, and he telephoned his secretary. Mr.
Pell, to go to Babylon, where he arrived shortly
before noon. The employes did then- best to
save the buildings, but. handicapped with an
inadequate water supply and ihe intensity at
yie fire, were helpless.
The glass paddock, one of the features of the
Belmont farm, fronted the south and furnished
a shelter for the racehorses In winter. It was
built abftut eighteen years ago.

Sharp Exchange of Radically Di
vergent Opinions.
Paris, Aug. 13. — William J. Bryan to-day gave
out a statement concerning the controversy re
specting the Illinois Democratic national com
initteeman. Roger Sullivan. The controversy
has grown out of Mr. Bryan's letter demanding
the resignation of Mr. Sullivan, to which Mr.
Sullivan returned a prompt refusal, and said
that Mr. Bryan had been misinformed respecting
the situation by M. F. Dunlap.
Mr. Bryan's rejoinder says that no one except
himself is responsible for the information con
tained in his letter, and that he had intended to
«sk Mr. Sullivan to resign before he should see
Mr. Dunlap. Mr. Bryan added:
I entered into this contest because I believed
that Roger Sullivan and John Hopkins had de
liberately robbed the Democrats of Illinois of
their political right, and I still believe ho. To
secure political power by force or by fraud
ought to be as disgraceful in the eyes of the
public as to secure money by force or fraud. I
cannot conceive of any plausible defence which
Mr. Sullivan can make for remaining on the na
tional committee. If th. body is unable to rid
Itself of the leadership of men like Sullivan, who
seek to control the party organization in order
to advance their corporate Interests, it might as
well dissolve. While 1 was anxioutu to give Sul
livan a chance to retire without a fight. It is
probably lust as. well that he refused, for if we
fiiu.«t fttfhv to puwfy the party organfxation the
sooner it begins the better.
The statement adds an expression of confidence
and approval of the work of the Majority Rule
League and of Messrs. Dunlap, Rainey, Thomp
son and Nelson.
Chicago. Aug. 13.— Roger Sullivan, national
coinmitteeman, said to-day in regard to Mr.
Bryan's latestVitterances that there was no truth
in them, adding:
Mr. Bryan got all of his information from
Mr. Dunlap, and is doing what Mr. Dunlap
wants him to do. All the information he has
about the Illinois situation he has received from
Dunlap and Thompson. He Is fighting their
battles— battles that they cannot fight for them
selves. His statement is not true as to the
control of the state convention two years ago,
as to the national committee or as to the com
mittee on credentials, Mr. Bryan is not bigger
than the entire Democratic party.
Mr. Sullivan referred to a letter which he said
Mr. Bryan had written to Congressman Cald
well, of the Springfield district, tn which he said
Mr. Bryan admitted that he had received all of
his Information from Dunlap. That letter, said
Mr. Suliivan, was proof of his assertions.
The letter from Mr. Bryan to B. M. Caldwell.
Democratic nominee for Congress in the l!lst
District, is as followtj-
North British Station Hotel, Glasgow, July IJ>.
My dear Mr. Caldwell: Mr. Dunlap has
brought me your message, and I hasten to say
ih.iit 1 shall he glad to come into your district if
engagements will permit, and I shall try to so
arrange them that they will penult. In prom
ising this 1 assume, of course, that the rank
and file will regain control of the organization,
as I have rot fell that I could consistently speak
there under the auspices of a state organization
that foisted iiself upon the party through force
and fraud. lam confident, however, that your
coming state convention will. In spite of the
harmony cry. purify the organization and make
the party deserving of public confidence. With

In a trance, an. l says he is ready to do the same
thing again before an audience of scientists. He
leaves his body behind, and only his spirit goes
through space. In describing two wonderful
races of men he found In Mars he says:
"One race Tias so large that 1 only came to
their knees, while another only tame to my
knees. None wore clothing, and all were cov
ered with hair. The large species had huge
ears, a nose like a lion and only one eye in the
middle of the forehef.d. The little men had web
feet and lived in holes in the ground, while the
large ones lived In houses bull: of rocks. The
little ones could walk up perpendicular walls.
as if they werft flies. They had no nose, but
there was a hol» in each cheek.
"Everything seemed to be made in a serpen
tine form, even the roads. Through the equa
torial belt of the planet was a wide belt of
water, probably nine miles across. Some of the
animals were green. I saw many of the big men
working with a big machine, which cast light
on to transparent rocks, reflecting it far into
space and nearly to the atmosphere of the earth.
When I approached Mars it looked like*a ball
of fire." ■

French Episcopate Condemns the
Separation Laxc.
Rome, Aug. 13. — The "Osservatore Romano"
to-day publishes the French bishops' reply,
unanimously and entirely approving of the terms
of the Popes encyclical against the separation
of Church and State. The document begins with
an expression of the bishops' satisfaction rela
tive to the nrst u/isembry of the entire French
episcopate for a century. The bishops express
tbeir gratitude for the opportunity afforded to
show their unanimous patriotism, faith and sub
n ission to the Fcpe'i will, and recognize the
Papal encyclical as a monument of divine and
bor.ian wisdom which, after judging, condemns
the separation law. The bishops declare them
s.-'.ves happy that they have been judged worthy
to sufler for the faith, and add:
With you. Holy Pather. we condemn the faUe
principles of the separation of Church and State.
Without previous consultation with the head of
the Church, with you we protest against the
sacrilegious usurpation of ecclesiastical prop
erty. We await the future with eyes turned
toward Home.

At 4 o'clock in the afternoon the Brooklyn
K;:piil Trails it discontinued its trolley service,
on its Culver line. Acting Police (owmimk^r

Itapid Transit sptviai policemen. The road
made the deposed special" officers inspe»*tor?, giv- •

Waldo Withdraws Licenses — Girl'i
Body Found— Coler Talks.
The opening guns in what promised to be th«
great popular revolt against a public service
corporation in this country were fired yesterday.
Officials of three departments of the city's gov- .
ernment arrayed themselves against the Brook
lyn Rapid Transit and the Coney Island & -
Brooklyn Railway companies. From citizens all
over the city came words of protest against
the practical anarchy which prevailed . all
Sunday and yesterday, charged by the travelling
public to the officials and employes of the rail
road companies.
As on Sunday. Deputy Commissioner O*K«effo
took a leading part in preserving order and de
priving the railroad companies of the oppor
tunity to exercise arbitrary powers. At his sug
gestion Acting Commissioner Waldo revoked '
all the licenses of the special officers in the em
ploy of the Brooklyn^Rapid Transit Company.
The railroad at once made every one of these
men "inspectors." and the work of forcible ejec
tion went on as before.
Conferences were held between rtty officials,
between counsel for the roads and between e£3
ciais and counsel all day. Borough President
Coler was the most outspoken, exhorting every
citizen to refuse to pay the second fare.
. At 4:2."» o'clock in fhe afternoon the Brooklyn
Rapid Transit suspended Its entire trolley car
service over the Culver lines, and will not re
sume it until "the fuss has died out." That it ■
realizes to what extent the citizens have been
aroused is evident from the fact that it to plan
ning not to run a single car to Coney Island on
next Sunday if there Is any reason to expect a
repetition of the incidents of Sunday.
Assistant Corporation Counsel Bell was asked
if the refusal of the company to operate its
streetcars over the Culver road would not In
validate its franchise. He said that so many
problems were involved in that question that
he could not make an off-hand answer. He said
that a street railroad company in Manhattan
had suspended traffic over one of its lines for a
time and that its franchise had never been
questioned because of that act.
Last night the body of a victim of the railroad
was found crushed In the Coney Island Creek.
The body was identified by members of her fam
ily as tfiat of Miss Fannie Sabrinsky. of No. 113 •
Belmont street. Brooklyn. Coroner's PhysleMri
Hartung. after the autopsy, said that (he girt
had died from a fractured Vkull. and not from
drowning. The same car that threw three
women from the bridge over the creek Is sup
posed to have killed Miss Sabrins&y.
On Sunday afternoon Miss Edna Slngerin. of
No. L'iTo Bush wick avenue, went to the Coney
Island station and asked aid In finding her
friend. Miss Sabrinsky, with whom she had
started to the Island. She explained that she
feared her friend had been killed, but Sergeant :
Martin refused any assistance whatever.
Yesterday afternoon the girl's mother and sis
ter called at the station and asked Sergeant
Martin to help her find her daughter. She said
that the two girls had been ejected from the ,
car after paying a second fare, and bad walked (
along the railroad track to Coney Island. Just
before reaching the trestle Miss Singertn lost
sight of Miss Sabrinsky. A moment later she
saw two women and a man hurled Into the
creek by a Vanderbllt avenue car. Sergeant
Martin told the mother he was too busy to tell
her anything or do anything for her; that he
had more important things to do.
Soon after 7 o'clock last night the body of
Miss Sabrinsky was f*.und in the creek close to
the bridge. It was taken to the Coney Island
Morgue and later identified. The police made
no attempt to find the motorman.
Lacking the presence of Deputy Commissioner
O'Keeffe at Kensington, the private detectives.
now insnectors, of the road, held a merry car*
nival In beating and ejecting- passengers. This
was. led by Colonel Roberts, of the law depart
ment of the company. Colonel Roberts on Sun
day tried to arrest a young girl who had pulled
the bell cord or. a car.
Jacob Greenblatt. of No. 347 Chester street.
Brooklyn, refused to pay a second fare. The)
colonel Jumped on board the car and grabbed
Greenb'att. The passenger was a little man
and the colonel Is decidedly bulky, but with -•-
ststanee he managed to pull Greenblatt out into
the street and admhiister a vigorous pum
melling. Greenblatt appealed to Captain Bar
kins and Sergeant Callahan. of the Coney Island
station, for protection, but the captain refused
to see anything, while the sergeant laughed.
Finally Patrolman No. 4.53? rescued Greenblatt
by placing him under arrest. Greenblalt pro
tested, but finally went along when the patrol
man decided that Roberts must go also.
Kvery one not on the police force who saw the
two go on* together supposed that Roberts was
also under arrest, but he seaa came back. In
quiry at the station later showed, that Greenblatt
only was locked up. charged with assault, and
could have no communication with any one.
Why Roberts was not held on his charge of as
saul:. also. Sergeant Martin could not say.
"What's the use of telling you anything?" re
marked Sergeant Martin. "It will ail come eat
in court. It doesn't Interest you. anyhow."
