further that his m<»ri would now figrht harder

Special Policeman a Football for
Speeders at Brighton Beach.
The first victim of the I'4-hour automobile
race of the Motor Racing Association at the
Brighton Beach racetrack was Thomas D. Fick
ett. a special po'.iceman. ho was struck by
three cars in the third hour of the race that will
not •■ : until 10:30 o'clock to-night. The last
car to hit the policeman was the Simples, and
George Robertson, the driver, in trying to avoid
him. ran into the Steams car. The latter was
so badly wrenched it was withdrawn. The men
at the Steams camp said they hoped to put it
back in the rac,e within a couple of hours.
Fickett was carried to the Coney Island Hospi-
I ta!. •where the surgeons said he had a chance to
i recover, although his injuries consisted of a
I compound fracture of the right leg and hip and
; a simple fracture of the left leg.
Th» accident came as the first sensation of
'. the unseasonably cold night, and the first re
; port was that Fickett had been killed. He was
■ chasing a couple of small boys off the track
» when he was caught in the onrush of the Sim
i plex. which swooped around the lower turn
; abreast of the Cleveland, with the six-cylinder
; Thomas and the Steams car just behind. Ac
, cording to the report made to the judges, the
! Cleveland car hit Fickett first and knocked him
i into the path of the big Thomas. Struck by the
' latter, the policeman fell in the 'path of the
; Simplex which, with George Robertson at the
; wheel, had been reeling off fifty-five miles or
better an hour. Robertson tried to swerve
' around the injured man. failed to do so and
! swung into the Steams car.
Fickett was picked up unconscious before any
more of the entries came upon him. Robertson
managed to stop after going around once more
and was relieved by Frank Lescault. Robert
son then reported to the judges the reason for
bis smasnin.: B1 '-ns car.

Commissioner Mitchel Recommends
Action bif District Attornej/'s
Office— Police on Grill.
Frank E. Brown, chief of the electrical bureau
in the Department of Water Supply. Gas and
Electricity, was arrested yesterday, charged
with attempt at extortion growing out of a
license issued by the license bureau, no--v under
investigation by the Commissioners of Accounts.
The technical charge against Brown was "ex
tortion under cover of official authority."
Brown is the second man to be arrested in
connection with the investigation of the license
bureau. The other man was Gaetario d'Amato,
the deputy commissioner, charged with extorting
51 1 0 for a license for a moving picture show.
Mayor McClellan, who instituted the investi
gation which has revealed extensive grafting; is
so fully convinced that the license bureau should
be out of politics that he will soon reorganize
it. and if possible put all the appointments into
the Civil Service. Brown is forty-one years old.
He lives at No. 285 St. Nicholas avenue.
Testimony yesterday showed that selling li
censes through police of the license squad was
genera!, and that business of the bureau was
largely controlled by policemen. Exorbitant
rates were charged for licenses, and "renewed"
licenses were sold to p*>dlers and others with
out their appearing at the bureau.
Brown was held in the Tombs police court for
examination in $1,400 bail. Following his ar
rest Commissioner O'Brien, In a statement, said
that Brown had been under observation for
several months because of rumors of payments
made to procure licenses for moving picture
shows. Two specific cases were investigated, he
said, but in neither instance was there evidence
to justify charges The Commissioner said he
turned the evidence over to the Commissioners
of Accounts and suspended Brown, pending the
investigation. He is a Civil Service appointee
and can be removed only on charges.
It was known in the* morning that Brown was
to be arrested, and he went to Great Harrington.
Mass. Friends, it is said, persuaded him to re
turn. He was in his office in the Park Row
Building when taken.
It was on an affidavit made bj MM
Christie, who conducted a moving picture place
at No. -'&> Avenue A. that Magistrate 'orrigan
issued the warrants for the arrest >f Brown and
d"Amato. I> Christie said that his I

at that tl#ne chief inspector of ih- Department
of Water Supply, Gas and Electricity.
D'Amato. he says, took him to Brown, who
said that things coaM be fixed up for (ISO and
the license returned. With his partners, OH

d' Amato in City Hall Park on January 27, and,
he alleges, gave him fllO. In the aftersjDoa he

John G. Milburn Says Passenger
Should Pay Every Time He
Boards a Car.
Though direct declaration wa.= ii"t made that
the receivers of the 3d | B Street Railway
<'ompan> would Sght in court an order of the
Public Service C «J to reatore tranafers
on the ."-nth street line, the tactics of the com
pany's counsel yesterday indicated that they
had that step under consideration, no matter
what proportion of a -j-cent fare might be al
lotted to them.
John G. Milburn, for the I anl Henry
Thompson, for the Centra! Park. North &
East River Railroad Company, made strenuous
objection to having any evidence that had al
ready been taken in prevtoa? hearings made
the i'asi? of such an order, and Mr. Mil
burn made it clear that the receivers would not
welcome a return to the i ■ '■ things if
It meant an exchange of transfers with inde
pendent line? at a 5-cent fare for a through
The commission yesterday waived its ordinary
course of procedure by allowing the receivers
of the Metropolitan and the officials of the Cen
tral Park road to put in testimony a^ to why a
through route and joint rate of fare should not
be established by the commission, inasmuch as
the companies concerned had failed to do so on
the commission's order In its interpretation of
the law the commission takes the ground that
the defendants named m a complaint are not
entitled to present their case except through
the interrogation of the commission's counsel.
John •;. Milburn. counsel for the Metropolitan
receivers, pleaded so earnestly last week for a
chance to be heard that the commission granted
the request.
.At the hearing yesterday Mr. Milnurn was
prompt in asking that the proceedings be dis
missed, as the commission had no pow^r to or
der a through route < r joint rate of fare When
this motion was denied by Chairman Willed*
Mr Milburn said that the proceeding was un
usual and inequitable, in that it was an entirely
new proceeding, and whatever evidence was pre
sented in the previous hearings on which an or
der might be based would not constitute a
fair record on which the receivers, if they so
wished, might ask for a court review. In this
request he was joined by Henry Thompson, of
counsel for the fentral Park. North & East
River Railroad Company, who asked that no
evidence except that taken in the new pro
ceeding be incorporated in the record that might
accompany a possible order of the commission.
Mr Coleman. counsel for the commission, said
he did not think it would ha necessary to in
corporate ai! the evidence that had been taken
in proceedings under previous orders in the mat
ter, but inasmuch as the companies interested
had been present at those hearings and had as
a whole furnished the evidence, be could not
agree with the objection. At any rate, the pres
ent hearing, he stated, had bees one -'by grace"
of the commission, and it was now the oppor
tunity of the receivers to put in testimony
against the fixing of a joint rate. Chairman
Willcox then said the commission would take
cognizance of the objection by consulting with
In prefacing the introduction of testimony as
to why transfers should not be restored between
the Metropolitan and the .7,tth street line.- in
the z>>ne between ."»4th and 110 th streets, Mr.
Milburn outlined the position of the receivers
and said It was based on the underlying princi
ple that th- must observe the statutory maxi
mum rate of fare — cents. Such a rate, be
made I lain, could not be anything except ruin
ous were a passenger allowed tv get and off
cars and yet continue his journey for one fare.
"We believe in the principle that every time a
passenger gets on a car he should pay a fare.
There is no more justification for permitting a
man to g^t off at 68tfc street and Eighth avenue
and getting on a 39th street car and then getting
off again and boarding a Madison avenue car —
all for five cents than for charging m.- five
cents if I board a car at Wall street, toff at
the poatofflce and post a letter, and then charge
me another five cents when 1 get on."
No definite declaration was made by Mr. Mil
burn that the receiver:- would fight the matter
out in court, In case the commission should de
cide to make an order restoring the 5-cent
through rate and transfer exchange system, but
from his remarks it is evidently the purpose of
the receivers to be fully prepared to fight the
order. Their action may be determined by the
character and terms of th" order, which it is
considered certain the commission will issue.
Should the order for a .'-cent rate be for only
a temporary period or of an experimental char
acter, It is possible the receivers may assent to
accepting it until its effects in practical opera
tion may be determined.
The application of the W"estcheeter E'ectric Com
pany for an amended franchise for its trolley lines
will be denied. It is said or. trustworthy authority.
The Board of Aldermen will deny the application
for modifications, and as under Receiver Whlt
ridge's under, which goes into effect Wednesday,
passengers cannot be carried across the city line
into New York City withoutan extra far'?, tbe local
company's franchise will stand In danger oi being
revoked. J. Addison Young, receiver of the West
chester road, was s»»r\ed yesterday with an order
to appear before Justice Tompkins at White Plains
to-day and show cause why he shouM not make

Tzco Inches Fall in North Woods—
Heavy Rains Also Aid.
Tupper Lake Junction. X. V.. Oct. Z— Two
Inches of snow fell this morning in the North
Creek district on Seward. Ampersand and other
mountains. L;.te this afternoon the storm was
still on and a curious atmospherical effect was
produced by the mingling of the snow and the
clouds of smoke from the forest fires which are
still smouldering in many places. All serious
danger from the burning woods is evidently
past, as the snow will undoubtedly prevent
further spread of the fire.
Albany. Oct. — Reports of heavy rains in the
Adirondack Mountains «m received to-day by
Colonel William F. F->x. State Superintendent of
Forests. "All the fires were practically out be
fore the rain appeared last night." said '.lone!
Fox. "but the rain has made the situation more
secure than ever We don't look for any further
damage from forest fires. Reports received to
day say that the rain last night '-was heavy and
that it was still raining this morning."
Officials of a number of railroads running
through the forests of the state were summoned
to-day to appear before the Public Service Com
mission in the 3d District, on October 12. to
show what devices and precautions are being
taken against setting fires along their respective
routes. The railroads will also be asked to
show cause why they should not either use some
fuel which will not emit sparks from th- loco
motive, or why their motive power should not
be changed to some other than steans.

Washington. Oct. 2.— Secretary Root was in
conference with President Roosevelt to-night.
On leaving the White House he declined to dis
cuss - ie financial management of the Republi
can national campaign. After reading the state
ment in New York dispatches to the effect that
he was in New York on Wednesday to look into
the state of affairs at Republican headquarters,
he said that on the way to Washington he had
merely paid an informal call on chairman
Hitchcock. When asked whether he had criti
cised Mr. Sheldon's course in the campaign he
said h* had made no such statement to any one.
No significance attached to his visit to the
White House, he said.

Comedian from Marine Elliott.
[By T>i<-?raph to The Tribune.]
Reno. New, Oct. -.—ln. — In less than fifteen min
utes after the trial began in the District Court
to-day Nat C. Goodwin, the veteran actor, ob
tained an absolute divorce from Bessie Demot
Goodwin, known on the stage as Maxine El
liott. The proved cause was desertion. Mr«.
Goodwin n-as represented by A. J. Shores, an
attorney, of New York, and Will Parker, of
Reno, but they offered no objections t« the
simple testimony of Mr. Good'win that his wife
refused to live with him either in their New
York or their Los Angeles home.
Nevada lawyers always have presumed that
a legal residence of at least six months was re
quired before a divorce could be granted in
Nevada, but Judge "'. H. A. Pike signed the
decree separating Goodwin and Miss Elliott, al
though neither hail established a home here.

Jamestown. N. V.. Oct. Z. — Overstrained tj
his work in th» Middle W*<«t for th<» National
Republican ticket. Governor Hashes*! vote* sa^e
out completely- to-day when he began hl3 own
campaign upstate. He was forced to abandon
a large part of th» programme »rr»ng*'i tor to
day. in-ludin« a speech at a lars- meeting her*
to-night, and will hay» to give up everytbtn*
to-morrow: except possibly <he «pe*ch at Buf
falo at night.
The Governor* condition 1* so serious, ar
cording t-» "Dr. A. t- D. Campb^ir. who ***
called in here, that if he does not g»t imrr.etL ! at«
rest and treat himself with th<» greatest cars
he may b«* unabl» to speak for several days. H«
wil! call in a throat specialist when he gets to
Buffalo to-morrow, and hopes to be able to
speak there at night and continue on a second
Western trip for the Republican National Com
mittee. The Governor says that he feels f.n».
Six speeche? In New York last night, ■ m * ) of
them in ill ventilated tent 3. in competition vrtxZl
great disorder, proved the finishing touch. Gov
ernor Hughes was extremely hoarse this morn
ing, and ma!'! the only extended speech of th*
day at Home!! with great rfistrw. That
showed him how impossible a continuance ef
th<* schedule would b*\ and reluctantly h* con
fined his campaigning aft-r that to a f*-ar s»n
t,.-,.-,,-.-.s of apolnn and much hand shakinsr.
This abandonment of the grassnao for this
section of th- state ha? disappointed th» local
committees intensely. It was only '"" *
declaration from Dr. rampb^Jl that a spaas*
to-night would N» dang»rcu» to the Gorarnor
that th» p»opl*» tn charge her* wouM cr n ««id»r
th» possibility of nmitting that feature nf their
meeting. As it was they insisted that tfiw Gov
ernor visit th* hall, which had been packed for
nearly two hours also* he made his apocaw
ance. When if w*s explained that he cooJd rot
possibly say anything the regr-t of the audienc
quite equalled that of the committee, but trie
people took it out in cheer after cheer.
The keynote of the ' Governor's one ext»nr!e<i
speech came with fine dramatic effect His
voice clearing for the first time to something
like its natural quality. h~ cried:
"You have seen me fight month by month for
the last twenty months. You have seen m*
opposed step by step as I have tried to instttut
reforms for the people. If lam defeat^, who
will rejoice? Every man who has been oppos
ing what we have tried to «io will Uto fresh
courage in his opposition try the ceoplc If I
am elected and my position is in<torsed. every
man in the state that is trying to Ar> hU deity,
every public officer that wishes to be inde
pendent and give an efflcfer.t administration.
pvPry lAjrislator who want? ro vote according tn
his conscience, every honest man that wants to
see the constitution faithfully maintained — all
will tak- heart and fresh courage, because each
will se* he can try to do right and yet be suc
€ o««rful."
This was the climax of a brief summary c
his administrative acts. As its significance in
connection with the Governor's rec-.nl -an*
home, the entire meeting ro?e in a prolonged
cheer, which lasted long after the Governor ha.l
entered the carriage to tak» him to the station.
Governor Hughes started bis trip along th-
Southern Tier with a little reception at Elmira.
He was not scheduled for any speech there, but
when his train came into the station there was
a goo.l sized throng waiting. Several men cam*
aboard to - him and urged him to ?ay just a
few word.*, so finally h» went to the rear plat
form, and while one of the party explained fcia
condition he shook hands with all those in
reach. A loud cheer was the Governor's sendoff
from the crowd. Neither Congressman Fassett
nor any of the leading members of the Chemunsr
County Republican organization were on hand
to greet the Governor.
Corning was on the schedule for a fifteen
minute stop and a rear platform speech. Ther©
was a great deal of disappointment at the an
nouncement that the speech would have to be
omitted, but a throng of several hundred formed
into line and marched past the Governor, most
of the mea saying a word or two expressive oZ
their admiration for Mr. Hughes.
A good part of the population of Hornell was
on the streets to welcome Governor Hughe*
when his train reached that place. The iocal
committee had arranged a parade, which ac
companied the Governor to the halL This was
filled with six or seven hundred people and
some two hundred school children, who bad
been dismissed for the day that they might see
the Governor. A storm cf cheers welcomed the
Governor when he entered the hall, to be suc
ceeded by great <;uiet when the state of his voles
became evident. Even with that, the Governor
had great difficulty in making himself heard
by those half way down the hall, and the effort
to speak loudly still further strained his throat
and vocal apparatus.
The Governor's speech was a brief summary"
of the principal achievements of his adminis
tration, coupled with an effective analysis of
the Democratic platform's dislngenuousness fax
criticising "government by commission."
"We have not been doing business behind
closed doors." said the Governor at one point,
and raised loud applause. His discussion of
the great work of the state labor department
also aroused enthusiasm, as did his showing of
the record of economy In the tast two years,
despite improvements In the administration of
the state's institutions.
"My friends in the Legislature think I hatr»
not been easy with the appropriation blila," said!
the Governor. "I have cut out the pork. ' hay«
cut o U • the fat."
