JUDGE EOSALSKY SATISFIED. Believes Ice Investigation Is Making Good Progress — More Conferences. Several hasty and mysterious conferences be tween Juilge Rosalsky an.l District Attorney Je rome and other equally mysterious talks between the judge and members of the grand jury were all that wa3 to be reported yesterday in connection with the ice investigation. To all appearances the status of the case was the same as when the grand Jury listened to the evidence of ice dealers, on whose testimony it was expected some action would be taken. The members of the grand jury with whom Judge, Rosalsky conferred yesterday were Bernard Karsch, foreman, and Edward T. Hlllyer. After the conference Mr. Hillyer was asked to say some thing about the nature of the conference. He re plied: •1 would like to say a great deal, but I guess I had better not." ; Mr. Karsch was likewise uncommunicative. Judge Roßalsky was a little less reticent. He Paid that the subject of i^cus-sion with the two jurymen had been the Ice investigation and that he was satis fled that everything was moving favorably. The judge also said that he believed new witnesses would be on hand on Monday or Tuesday, when the. grand Jury will again take up the ice situa tion. When questioned with regard to his confer ences with tho District Attorney, Judge Rosalsky said, after some hesitation, that the subject had been the Ice investigation. 'But only the legal aspect was discussed.' he said. RIGO LOSES CUFF LINK; PAINTER HELD.

WBESTLE WITH AUTO PROBLEM. Bar Harbor Mass Meeting Discusses Question of lifting Bar Against Cars. [By Telegraph to The Tribune.] Bar Harbor, Me.. Aug. It*. — Bar v Harbor wrestled In vain to-day with the Automobile problem, which has been troubling it for the last three years. In March, 1903, the Legislature passed a law enabling Bar H»rbor to prohibit the use of motor vehicles en Its roads, and in July of that year the town by a vote prohibited the use of these vehicles in the town of Eden. A large number of permanent residents, visiting automobile," enthusiasts and automobile manufac turers have attempted to repeal the law, and came near winning several times. a mass meeting of the summer guests and residents was called to-day to discuss the question, but none of its upholders came forward, and at last a well known lawyer was In duced to present their side of thr> case, carefully re futing each argument, however, as he did so. At last, after two hours of discussion, or rather affirmation of th* movement to bar out auto mobiles, on the motion of Morris K. Jesup presi dent of the New York Chamber of Commerce it was voted to leave the matter to a committee and the meeting adjourned with th" question as far from settlement as when it started.

NO rsyirss BURGLARY HERE People Warn Thieves of Emptiness of Wmm — Some Appeal to Honor. Owners of property on the upper East and West sides.

Along Riverside Drive some of the finest houses ar.e placarded with huge signs which read that the liner and has de posited his jewelry in such and such a vault. The family of Joseph Kittel. late president of the Nineteenth Ward Bank, have probably one of the biggest placards to be seen alons the drive on their home at 122«1 street. It reads: THIEVES AND BTmrSLARS, TAKB NOTICE. JEJWEL.RY ANl> SILVERWARE ARE STORBU WITH The placard serves the double purpose of an ad vertisement for the safe deposit company In ques tion and as a warning to the burglars. Another sign reads: GENTLEMEN WILT. PLRASE REMEMBER THAT THE FOLKS ARE AWAY FOR THE SUMMER. IP YOU HAVE NEED OP ANYTHING. APPLY TO THE CARETAKER. OUR JEWWT,RY IS WITH THE AND OUR MONEY IN OUR POCKETS. This appears In big green letters on a house at 125 th street and Riverside Drive.

According to police reports and the owners of the property, there have been fewer robberies in the residence section this summer than any other pre vious summer. The credit Is given to the signs.

The Gerry society and the police would like to know where Richard, or "Red." as he would a good deal rather be called, is now. "Red" got away from the Orry society's rooms in the Children's Court building on Wednesday by way of a tele grajjh wire and a wash pole, aided and abetted by an old woman who has apparently not yet been arrested for aiding in the escape of a criminal. "Red." whose family lives at No. 127« Third ave nue, has become a familiar sight to the officers of the Children's Court. His chief diversions are shooting craps and stealing junk, and It was for the latter offence that he was in trouble on "Wednes day. He had b«en remanded to the care of the Gerry society by Justice McAvoy, and was waiting, with other offenders, to be taken to the headquar ters of the society. Patrolman Patrick was in charge of the room, where forty young offenders were being held, and ho was out of sight of the pen for a few moments when "Red" and a friend took French leave. They ran 'along: a corridor and mounted to the roof by a ladder. There on» boy was caught by Patrick, but "Red" was swinging over an open court from a telegraph wire, and the officer looked on In amazement as th»» boy swung out to a point ten feet- above «n abandoned stable and dropped to safety. Then he leaped out and slid down a wash pole which led to the- bf.ck yard of a Third avenue tenement house. Here an old woman opened the door and let him out. The boy had not been found last night.
