LIFT CAR FROM MANSLED WOMAN.
Forty Men Go to Assistance of Badly
Injured Pedestrian.
Miss Jennie Beatty, of No. 108 East 12th street,
was run down early last evening by a northbound
Broadway car, midway between 12th and 33th
streets, and so badly mangled that death, the phy
sicians said last night, would be a relief. She was
caught between the fender and the for* trucks. It
required the assistance of forty men to lift the
car to get her out. She was hurried at once to St.
Vincent's Hospital, where It was found she was
injured internally. Thomas Gallagher, the motor
man, who lives at No. 315 West Wth street, was
locked up in the Mercer street station. He has
been In the service of the company fifteen years.
According to witnesses, there had been a block
on the southbound trie!: for nearly an hour before
tha» accident. The cars began to move a few mo
ments before and, to make up for lost time, some
of them shot dcr-vn Broadway. Miss Beatty was
trying to cross the tracks at the point where she
was injured. She passed the southbound track and
had just stepped on 10 the northbound When Gal
lagher's car, funning a high speed, knocked her
down. Traffic was blocked for nearly three-quar
ters of an hour.
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.

cer " it is denied by Commissioner Smith that he
had any authority from the department, which
had never Issued such a badge.
Inspector Thompson learned that Masterson is
only nineteen years old, and. it is said, seemingly
has a mania for holding up autcmohllists. He has
stopper! several along the coast ar.d in <:ne Instance
at least stopped tho same person twice. Masterson

ered a distance of a quarter of a mile in 16 seconds

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. Among the speakers
were: 1.. K. Opdycke, of New York, who presided
over the meeting; Bishop William Croswell Donne
of Albany; Dean Lewis, of the University of Penn
sylvania Law School; Mrs. Khln. lander Jones of
New York: William Jay Bchleffelin, James' T
Gardiner. George L. Stehhlns. Morris K. Jesun ami
Philip Livingston.

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. Riverside Drive and Fifth avenue have hit
on a plan to keep the burglar away from their
homes while they are at their country place*.
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.
Over on Fifth avenue the signs are smaller, but
just as pertinent. One reads:
AN HONEST PERSON NEVER ATTACKS ANOTHER
PERSON IN TIIB BACK. WE'RE AWAY
FOR THE SUMMER.
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.
TO LIBERTY BY TELEGRAPH WIRE.
"Red," of Third Avenue, Junk Thief, Gives
Gerry Society the Slip.
Richard Walsh is a small and redheaded boy
who used to travel Third avenue pretty regular
ly. 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.
