K.fi. BRIDGE SPAN FALLS cojfi; r.i7?.s go Trzr/iT zr. Part of Huge B. § O. Structure Col lapses Dynamite Hinted. Havre 'De Grace. Md . Sept. 2?.— Through the col lapsing of a span of nearly six hundred feet of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Bridge over the SuFQuehanna River at this point this morning twelve loaded coal cars of a northbound freight train were carried down and the span was totally demolished. William Wilson, of Havre de Grace, a watchman for the American Bridge Company, went down with the wreckage, and received In juries which may prove fatal. There were no other casualties. The bridge, which was erected in the early so p. was being rebuilt and double tracked. The acci dent occurred about € o'clock. With a crash that was heard for several miles, the immense mass fell Into the river, ompletely chocking up the east ern channel. ! Two hours later the section that went down would have been swarming with work men, engaged in putting up the great steel beams and girders which enter into its construction. The cause of the accident is unknown. There are reports current that the bridge was tampered with, and that dynamite had been found concealed in different parts of the structure during the last few weeks. Baltimore & Ohio officials are on the scene, making investigations. Immediately after the accident the railroad com pany made arrangements with the Pennsylvania company to run trains over the latter company's tracks, using the Pennsylvania tracks between Wilmington and this place, and as a result there was practically no Interruption to through traffic over the road. All the telegraph wires running over the bridge were carried down. D. D. Or. -triers, chief engineer of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, this afternoon expressed his inability to explain the catastrophe on any other theory than that the bridge had been dynamited. "I would not make such an accusation." he said, "because it is barely possible, though highly im probable, that there was some hidden defect in the work Of construction that caused the accident. But the bridge could have been dynamited and the fact concealed for the time. "There was nothing whatever." he said, "to in dicate that the bridge was weak. I do not charge that the bridge has been dynamited, but I have no other theory." For some time past, according to assertions made here to-day, there have been hard feelings against the bridge contractors on account of a disagreement with certain workmen. Both the Bridge and rail road companies have maintained guards on the work. According to the lest estimate that can be ob tained from the bridge officials, the damage to the work will reach JW.OOO. This is exclusive of the loss to cars and freight they were carrying. H. P. Reynolds, superintendent of construction of the American Bridge Company, which is engaged in reconstructing the bridge, said that the structure was perfectly secure last night, when it was care fully inspected after the working gangs left it for the day. The span which Bell was part of a structure pro nounced by experts to be among the strongest of Its kind In the world. The bridge covers about 7.000 feet, stands Ml feet high and Is being built of solid concrete and steel. At the offices of the Baltimore <£: Ohio Railroad. No. 17 State street, George H. Campbell, general superintendent of the Mew York division, said that he had received a report to the effect that the false work over the east channel had collapsed either because It had been tampered with fay strikers or ■ill the work might not have been efficiently protected and the Umber braced. Ho Eaid that be bad telegraphed instructions to Havre de Grace for taking care of the freight and pas eenger traffic. •There will be no delay in traffic," said Mr. Campbell. "The passenger trains will run over the tracks of the Pennsylvania Railroad, which are connected by a switch for just such emergencies, and are only an eighth of a mile distant. The ' freight traffic will be taken care of by way of Allentown on the New Jersey Central. Philadelphia & Reading and Cumberland Valley railroads. «.e ' turning to the Baltimore & Ohio at ltartlnsbur«. W. Va. The Pennsylvania tracks carry the traffic between Swan Creek and Wilmington." The bridge at Havre de Grace is one of fno sights on the main line of the Baltimore & Ohio. It was built twenty-three years ago by the Amer ican Bridge Company at a cost of about a million dollars. It is a mile long, consisting of two spans. each of which is what Is known as a "through bridge." the trains running through the steel work. Between the two spins is Ganvtt Island, across a half TOile of which extends a ''deck bridge.'* the tracks there being without any superstructure. The bridge is seventy-five feet above the Su=quc-hanna and affords a view up and town the stream. K\ "Work has been proceeding en the bridge for the ■/last year. The American Bridge Company has been " pra rt' rebuilding as well as tracking the old bridge, to accord with modern ideas of such ■ted structures. The part over the island and the main channel had been completed, ar.d the span over the east channel, which is the smaller of th 2 two. was half finished. NAT GOODWIN CHARGES DESERTION.

COLUMBIA AGAIX OPEX. University Has Largest Entering Class in Its History. With the largest enrolment in its history. Colum bia University opened for its 155 th academic year yesterday. The informal opening of the new term was celebrated during the entire morning and cul minate! in a fierce underclass rush just at noon. The sophomores made it unpleasant for the first year men when they first tried to pain the campus in the early morning, and it was only by banding together in groups that the freshmen were able to reach the grounds. There they were suhje<ted to the petty indignities that sophomores glorying in their new-found authority love to administer to the "•green." They were not allowed to wear their fancy hosiery, and flashy scarfs were torn off and displayed by the second year men. Just before neon the freshmen were assembled in a mass mooting and taught the rules of con duct. Then They were marched around the campus until they came to South Field, where three hun dred sophomores were waiting for them. The freshmen, about four hundred strong, hit the Eopbomore line, but they were unable to break it, and after several unsuccessful attempts they de cided to run for the gymnasium. But the sopho mores were nlil<» to give not a few of their n^-w rivals a ducking In the fountains before they reached cover. As a scrap it was a mild affair, but it served the purpose to break the Ice of the entire undergraduate body for the two underclasses. The formal <-xercises, which were held in the gymnasium later in the day. were poorly attended. In the absence of President N. M. Butler. John W. Burgess, d^an of the School of Political Sci ence, presided. In his introductory address he praised the action taken by Dr. Butler at the fram ing of the Republican platform, and said in regard to this: "We are now on the eve of a great domestic struggle, not to say revolution. It has become cus tomary in these latter days for certain classes in our i"litical society to rail at the restraints placed by the courts upon popular license and govern mental absolutism. For a long time we disre garded the noisy clamor as the fuming of the mob or the fustian of the demagogue, but when at length the threat of secret movements and opera tions for the frustration of the law was spoken we all recognized that the time had fully come foY a ampaign of education in regard to lental principles of our entire system of can government and individual liberty. Most largely owing to the efforts of Dr. N. SI. But - ■ . pledge to uphold the independence of our nail raal fudldary and maintain it In the exercise of all Its o nstltutkmal powers and functions un impaired was inserted in the platform of one of the great parties, grudgingly, !n<leed, and with a harm ful modification, but sufficiently to make of it one of the chief Issues— in my humble opinion, the most important issue of the campaign through which we arc bow moving. Were it not so I would not venture to refer to it on this wcasion. Both of the great parties are represfnted in our university, and neither of tlir-m lias taken the stand upon this great subject which the <"onstltution of our country re quires. Both of them have proposed to interfere with the fudictal power of the United States, vested by the constitution wholly and solely in the federal Judiciary, by means of a statute of Congress. !:• th of thr-Tn have proposed to So by an act of ordi nary legislation that which can be rightfully done only by a constitutional amendment. Both of them have propose,! to do this— a legislative usurpation upon the constitutional functions of the Judiciary— and both of them have therefore virtually proposed by legislative usurpation the gradual development Of the almighty legislature, the parliamentary sys tem, while the system of our republic is In deepest principle a system of constitutional limitations upon both the legislature and the executive, ad rn!riipter<vi by the courts in behalf of individual lib erty and state autonomy."

"EXILE 1 " TO BE ENDED.— Colonel William F. Stewart, of the coast artillery corps, will be placed on the retired list. Enough is known of the case of that officer in the report received from the army surgeons who examined him when he was ordered to take the riding test to Justify the ex pectation. Colonel Stewart will appear before the regular retiring board, which meets at Washing ton Barracks, before which also will appear the other officers who have failed to take or failed in taking the test. It was remarked to-day by one of the War Department officials that if the au thorities had had any idea that Colonel Stewart was incapacitated for active service he would have been promptly ordered before a retiring board some months ago, but no one entertained any such suspicion, and the officer has been kept at Fort Grant, Arizona, in the hope that he would ask to be retired. It Is appreciated that the retirement of Colonel Stewart on the recommendation of the board Of medical officers will be made to appear in certain prejudiced quarters as a part of the scheme to get rid of Stewart and to^force his re tirement before there is any chance of his attain ing the grade of brigadier general, promotion to which position Colonel Stewart has already made a condition of his premature retirement on his own application. Army officers wil be glad of the ter mination of the case of Colonel Stewart and the filling cf his place by an artillery officer who will be available for command duty.

Major W. Ll Kenly. of the sth Field Artillery, who has been in command of the recruiting ser vice in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Jersey City since October, has found that in spite of all his ef forts to induce men to join the United States Army they are not as eager to do so now as they were up to the month of August. "There is always a falling off in the number of applicants just before a Presidential election," said Major Kenly yrsterday. '"But. of course, it is more marked now because of the large number en listed between December and May. The number of acceptances averages from one-fcurth to one fifth of the number of applicants. In August there were 2.454 applicants, out of which 6is were cent to Fort Slocum.'" When Major Kenly tcok charge here he began to try new methods for petting men. Henry Smith, Park Commissioner, and Mayor McClellan permit ted him to place recruiting officers in the various parks. Handbills were distributed throughout the city, and the advantages of joining the army paint ed in glowing colors. Major Kenly says that the figures have reached the minimum. Captain J. T. Conrad, of the 2d Cavalry, his assistant, says that many men who will enlist later are waiting until after election. GOODEICH NOT TO RETIRE. Time of Active Service Extended One Year — Goes to Spain.

Jackson Tells of His Experi ments in Brooklyn This Summer. With a view to verifying his theory that flies and not hot weather ar» chiefly responsible for the prevalence of diarrhoea] diseases. Dr. Daniel D. Jackson, of the Merchants" Association committee on water pollution, has continued all summer the investigations which he begun a year ago. At a statinn near Prospect Park, Brooklyn, he hns been trapping flies regularly Blnce May 23 and has been comparing the record of his captures with that of 19-V7. ns well as with the Health Department mor tality figures. As he expected, Dr. Jackson found the relation between the number of flies captured and the num ber of deaths reported substantially the same as last year. The fly season opened earlier this year than last, but reached its height in the month of July, as it did in 1907; that is. the largest number of flies caught at the station in 1907 was 6,221 for the week ended August 3. and in 1908 2,180 for the week ended August i. The largest weekly number of diarrhoea] deaths reported last year coincided exactly with the largest catch of flics, being 576 for the week ended August 3. This summer the highest weekly death record was -us, made for the week ended July 18; but it followed two weeks in which the catches of flies were 2,000 each, nearly us high as the maximum. He said he found on eighteen swill barrel dies 118,ao«j,000 bacteria, orMQQ, 000 bacteria, to each fly. WARNED THE BANK BURGLARS. Mistake Made by Telephone Operator in Nebraska Town.

Coffee Merchant Accused of Holding Her "by Purchase" Justice Stapleton. In the Supreme Court. Brooklyn, yesterday set free a Javanese girl who had been virtually hold, according to the papers, in a mild form of slavery !n the home if William It. Ftone, president of the Porto Rican Coffee Company, No. -3 Old Klip. Manhat tan. The Stone home Is at No. 126 Columbia Heights, the old home section of Brooklyn. Stone fought hard to retain possession of the girl on the grounds that he was under a moral responsibility, as he brought her to America, and a legal responsibility because, he said, the Dutch government expected him to return the girl to her native land safe and sound. The girl's story as brought out in the-testi mony is that her mother worked for the Stone family several years while Mr. Stone was in Java looking after his coffee plantations. Short- j ly before the family left Asia the girl's mother j gave the child to Stone and his wife. Eveleigh ' C. Stone, to be their servant. They agreed to i give nor $4 a month and to look after her. She ; was called Ana Marita. In November, 11HI3. the Btonea left Java and returned to America. The girl, who was then fifteen years old, was a servant. She spent her monthly pay so reck lessly that the family persuaded her to open a bank account Through converging with Lonare Vtjirano, a Spanish servant. Ana became dis satisfied with her place and tried several times to escape. She had Mr. Stone in the Adams street police court about a year ago and charged him with keeping her as a slave. Later she withdrew her charge and returned to his home. Last June she escaped again, and Captain Pinkerton arrested her and sent her home. F. H. Jones, a lawyer, with offices at No. 3.~» Nas sau street, Manhattan, learned the girl's st;;ry and became interested in h^r case. He prom ised to get htr free and get her better employ ment. He found an employer for the girl in Mrs. Effie E. Hipkins. wife of John C. Hipkins, an insur ance broker, of No. 76 William street, Manhat tan. The Hipkins family lives at No. 1141 Dean street. The habeas corpus proceedings were brought in the name of the Spanish servant. Miss Vegir ano. The affidavits declare that Ana, who is i now nineteen years old, was held in "restraint" of her "personal liberty and freedom" by "force, fear and duress." They declare that the Stones ( had threatened the girl with imprisonment jf she did not submit to them, and told her that she j was enslaved to them for life "by purchase.'' J They claimed the right to hold her before the j courts of this country "by color of adoption or ! guardianship," the papers said. These allega tions were denied by Mr. Stone. On the stand the girl said she had been de- j prived of her freedom, but the worst she could j say of the Stones was that Mrs. Stone had | slapped her once or twice. She was well dressed i and the Court said he was satisfied that she had been well treated and well brought up. After j listening to the testimony Justice Stapleton ! called the girl before him and told her she was j a free agent, and had the right to go wherever she pleased. Mr. Stone said that Ana was not a citizen of this country and was unfamiliar with the ways here. Justice' Stapleton told him that did not make the girl any less a free agent. Mr. Stone said he would apply for a guardian for the girl this morning, and Ana went away with her new mistress. SHOOTS HER; KILLS SELF. Woman Attacked in Park May Die — A&aUant a Suicide.

STATE SOLD CITY'S REAL ESTATE. Corporation Counsel Directed to Begin Pro ceedings to Recover. Controller Metz. at the meeting of the Sinking Fund Commission yesterday, said that the state had "Jumped" the city's lons established and valid claim to certain real estate on Staten Island, sold it and banked the proceeds. Deputy Controller Phillips explained that the old QiMiiir.tine station, a fifty-acre plot, was conveyed to the city by the Commissioners of Immigration, along with forty-one lots on Ward's Island, in July, 1893, for $1,100,000.
