In addition to the police and the night employes of the building, others who were present when the building was va cated were Judge Joseph F. liulqaeen, of the Court of General Sessions, and various members of the Department of Buildings. Judge Mulqueen had come to I .<- building, he said, to get some pri vate' papers, apd when told that the building had officially hern declared "unsafe" he said that he concurred in the finding of Superintendent Murphy. FEARS GAS EXPLOSION. "Why, only, yesterday," said the judge, "a gas pipe in the third floor, near my . hamhers, burst, causing a great flow of gas that was very annoying to every body present. A gas explosion In the present state of the building would be almost certain to cause its collapse, I believe, and we would not care-to occupy the building much longer, even if the Department of Buildings had declared it t-Hf' . "The Court of General Sessions did not hold a session yesterday, but that was because of the fact that we never do .held court on th" day after election, be cause the police are too busy with elec tion cases." Soon after th arrival of Captain Gal vin and hi.- men.' Coroner Harburger ar rived at the Criminal Courts Building and went at once to bis office, where all the papers necessary for use to-day and fj-niorrow were, tak-n out of th<- fafes. The Coroner Stated that Superintendent Murphy's action of yesterday was only whr.it he had recommended over a year ago. when he statad that the building was unsafe. He showed the newspaper men present through his offices and point rd out more than a dozen cracks, some of which, he. said, had only appear -d p.me Tuesday. Directly off his private office the Coroner pointed out spots where the" heavy cement flooring had sunk to a depth of more than six inches. Judge ifalqueen stated that Justice Vernon M.

A pp n i n ted ( o w vi igffO ncr* hij Manor, ]Vho Maij Be After the Female f'ote. Mayor McClellan surprised the women of New York last night by announcing the appointment of three women as full fledsred Commissioners of the Board of Education. They are Mrs. Helen Car rol Robbins. of No. ln:?4 Fifth avenue; Miss Olivia Leventritt, of No. 31 West 77th street, and Mrs. Alice 1.. Post, of No. 39 Bowne avenue. Flushing. Coming the day after election, when the hearts of the suffragists were some what troubled over the reflection that only men, some of them very common, had had a part in th<> voting:, the ap pointment of the three came as a sort of consolation prize. As Mayor McClellan is a young man. it was suggested that one of these days he might get the solid support of the women suffragists for tJovernor or President before he reached the "lean and slippered pantaloon" period. Mrs. Robbins is a Romar Cath olic Miss Leveatritt is a Jewess, a daughter of ex-Justice Leventritt. .Mrs. Post is an Episcopalian, the wife of Al fred 6. }'i.st, of Flushing. Dr. William IT. Maxwell, City Super intendent of Schools, when told of the. appointment of women as members of the Board of Education, said at his home last night: "This marks the first time since the formation of the greater city that a woman has been appointed a school commissioner. Just before the consoli dation into the greater city a woman served on the Brooklyn School Board and did admirably. Women have done admirable work hs school commission ers." SPOKE AT PANKHURBT MEETING. Mrs. Robbins made a speech at tho Carnegie Hall meeting, recently held in honor of Mrs. Pankhurst, the English suffragette. She refused to talk or he seen about her appointment at her home, last night. No better fortune awaited reporters who called to see Miss Leventritt. At ."» o'clock it was said at her home that she would not be in until S o'clock. At the latter hour a maid dispersed the appli cants by reporting that "Miss Lieven tritt is not in because s-!ie said she. wasn't in. Shure and they'se bin droves iv ray port hers here, but what I'm t^llin" yea It right." "When will she be in?" ••She won't be In because she's in now. How can she com* in whin she ain't, out? Will ye?, plaze bate it? Out wid yez"' And as the reporters descended the steps, she said: "The ner-rve of 'em.' 1 There was ;< chorus of giggles from lie hind the stone step?. Mrs. Post said last night thai she could not confirm the report, as she had re ceived no notification from Mayor Mc- Clellan. WAITS FOR NOTIFICATION.

Remarkable Scene M Vans Murder Trial Ability M Actresa Shown. [By Fr»tr-b rahle t" T^» TftbHM ) Paris. Nov. 3.— Mme. Steinheii catis°d a tre.mendous sensation to-day by her vigorous and skilful answers to the s* 3 vere examination, lasting three hours, to which she was subjected She main tained an attitude of almost exalted conviction of her own innocence. Her replies came with lightning rapidity as she looked the judge full in th<* fac«* and speVte with a well modulated, musical ton* of voice, high pitched, clear as a silver bell, but not too strident. She is ;i born tragedienne. She defended her self with such absolute pelf assurance and cleverness as to cause an impres sion which on the whole was not in her favor. Mine. Bteinheil's dress, her demeanor and In fact hf-r theatrical make-up could not have been better arranged than if it had been devised by Sarah Bernhardt. Phe wore a simple black gown in ex quisite taste, which fitted her to perfec tion, disclosing her litlie. graceful form. The corsage was slightly open at the neck, modestly disclosing a dazzling glimmer of ivory flesh. Her headdress was a captivating black toque, orna mented with a discreet garland of jets. Her hands were covered with nicely fit ting black gloves. She wore no jewelry. A delicate white cambric handkerchief was visible in her corsage. Her large, beautiful eyes shone with brilliancy, and at times glittered with ferocity as she fixed them steadfastly on her judge, who, according to the unfortunate require ments of the French code of criminal procedure, often bullied and browbeat the prisoner or if her conviction was a foregone conclusion. A year before the drama in the Im passe Ronsard I met Mme. Steinheil and her husband at the house of a prominent French marine painter, whoso. wife is of American birth. The occasion was a dinner party of eighteen guests. I hap pened to be the one assigned to offer my arm to Mme. Steinheil and conduct her to the table. Since then I had not seen her until this afternoon, when she sat in court between two guards. She had changed little. The lines of determina tion of her jaws had become more pro nounced and her exceedingly pretty face had gained ail expression of maturity. Mme. Steinh'il is a consummate, actress. Her magnetic charm,.. her al most supernatural - flashes of ferocity, her masculine determination, certain cruel lines of her lips, her clear, impres sive voice, and her well measured gest ures and dignified hearing create a per sonality such as might well have been chosen by Shakespeare himself to play the part of Lady Macbeth. All present at. the trial to-day, consciously or not, were 'influenced by this impression, which must have a distinctly unfavor able effect on the jurymen, who have the appearance of the average men whom one. meets In the street. With one ex ception all the jurymen wear mustaches", and as most of them are married men it was surmised by Henri Rochefort, who was present at the trial, that out of sym pathy for poor Steinhei] they would eventually all act together. c.

No-. 3.— Not since 1912, when Frederic and Therese Humbert were con victed of a 112.000,606 swindle, has a trial In Paris excited Mich interest as that of Mni<>. Stelnliejl. which began before. Judge Y>r Valles, in the Seine As.^iz- Court to day. She is m trial for her life, charged with the murder of her husband and her stepmother, .Ini". Japy. The alleged mo th c is found in the defendant's hatred for her stepmother and a desire to rtd herself of Cue husband In order that she might marry Maurice Borderel, a wealthy mer chant. Th" talents and attractiveness of the woman, combined with the mystery of her career and ncr connections with persons high in the public life of France, have fed the popular Imagination and led th" public to believe that startling disclosure;; are. Imminent. Judge de VaJles h3d received twenty five thousand application! for seats in the. courtroom, i"it he arbitrarily refused ail with the exception of those made for mcm l-,. <! of the press. i he bar and others di rectly concerned with the trial. To these ■were added the first hundred persons who. standing in line, this morning sought ad mission to the courtroom. The law pr> vides for public admission to the trial of any cases not heard in camera, and the admission of the one hundred mentioned met this requirement. In the hope of set ting one of these coveted places many men nnd women stood before the court entrance all last night, and places of vantage in the line, commanded as high as $200. in refusing the many applications for seat* Judge de Valles said that h<» did not Intend to tolerate a repetition of previous scandals by turning the present proceed ings Into a music hall performance-.

Bteinheil protested her Innocence and declared repeatedly that her original account of the crime, to the effect that II had been committed by three turn dressed in long flowing coats, with the assistance of a red-haired woman, was true. She ex plained the' stories told by her subse quently, in which she accused various per son?, on th« ground that she was in a nervous condition at the time and the vic tim of suggestion oh the part of journal ist police officers and others.

Sees Reporters _ [.isum a State went, Prepares for a Vacation. William J. (Jay nor. Mayor-elect of New York City, remained at his home. No. 20 Eighth avenue, Brooklyn, yesterday, re ceiving congratulations and callers and clearing up business affairs preparatory to a brief vacation at his summer home in St. James. Long Island. After taking a walk through Prospect Park and breakfasting at 0 o'clock Judge Gaynor met the newspaper men in the. parlor of his home. For the first time sin.c the beginning of the campaign his features took on what was interpreted as an expression of good nature. First, he denied having given out a statement printed in one of the newspapers yester day morning containing an attack on newspaper proprietors. The judge said in a statement issued later that,. on the contrary, he had kindly feelings toward the newspapers and their representatives who had called daily at his house. He refused to talk about the affairs of the Mayor's office or of any of his plans for his vacation or for the administration. One of the reporters informed the Mayor-elect that John Purroy Mitchel declared he would serve as Mayor if the judge decided to keep . his campaign promise to reject the office in the event of the defeat of Gaivin and Moore. "Now, that is enough of that." inter rupt, d the judge, "I wont hear more of it." ' .His statement -concerning the news papers was as follows: I have nothing for the newspapers to day, except that I desire to express my wannest thanks and appreciation to you. the reporters of all of the newspapers who have been calling daily at my house. Not a confidence broken, not r. mean thing. I was told that I ought to'hav.j a manager, and turn you over to him. but I knew it was not necessary. "1 m.i •once' one of you. I hope your editors will publish this. . ■ • • DENIES INTERVIEW. "1 regret to see what purports to be an interview with me in one morning paper. I gave none! to any one. I know none of you wrote it." A few minutes after giving out copies of this statement, all the judge's good nature deserted him with startling sud denness. A writer for a magazine was talking with him in his study, which was occupied by several newspaper men also.' During the conversation the Mayor-elect turned and saw a man mak ing sketches of him. "What are doing here?" he shouted in a blaze of fury. "Leave this house im mediately: This is damnable— it is an outrage!" The magazine writer attempted to calm him. "Why, judge," he said, "this man is an artist. I brought him with me to make sketches of you to illustrate my article. I hope you'll consent to have pictures made of yourself." The. request was effective, and the. Mayor-elect regained his temper. "Well, I suppose there is no reason why I Should object." he paid, and then added an explanation of his . conduct. "I thought he was a reporter," said the judge. Many callers, including politicians and public officials, tiled in and out of the house all day. The election of Judge Gay HOT was pleasing to Borough President Coler. of Brooklyn. The campaign against the. Tammany candidate be cnlled villanous. He lih<l praise for Mr. Prendergast and Mr. Steers, and predicted harmony in the Board of Estimate. Bf'COOET 1 THANKS SUPPORTERS. Deputy Controller John H. IfeOoeey, T\ho was defeated by Mr Steers for the office .-.f Borough President, issued a statement thanking those who supported him.

Bond dealers in speaking of the ad vance paid there had been an almost complete reversal of sentiment in regard to th« city's securities as a result of th« fusion victory, and that they looked for a much better market for these issues from now on as a result of the election.

Murphy, leader of Tam many Hall, said yesterday that as had no intention of r»!«i?ntns: the leadership. A "Joker" put Into the nil*** and r»a->i lations of the Tammany organization by Murphy himself at, the time of th« trouble, with r>.- r; makes th- execu tive committee a self-perpetuatics af fair, and Murphy can "freeze out" of. th* executive committee any one objection able to him and his conferred?. The minute a revolt is begun th* of fender can be brought to book, and If hi* I case is a. particularly offensive on» hat | can be thrust out and kept out of the ex ' ecutive committee. That checks the re j volt. So long as Murphy shows a dis position to retain the leadership it will be practically impossible to oust him from it. If Judge liavnnr had been de feated on Tuesday Murphy might '■- * ■* | handed in his resignation at the ' • »m- . 1 '.>er reorganization meeting. But Judge Oaynors election gives ths> Tammany men .i renewed lease of power.

There is no sign of a general revolt against Murphy just now. Some of th» I leaders would like to have Maurice ■ Featherson in his place, but they do not dare say so, for fear that within a year : or two they might find themselves where I Francis J. Lantry. who revolted against ■ the boss, found himself last year—out side the breastworks. MURPHY'S LONESOME JOB. Hunnins: Tammany Hall looks like a ' lonesome job for the next two or thraa years. Murphy, not having any other place to go for comfort, went down to the Wigwam yesterday at I'2:ZO p. «■>.. ■ with his head up. as usual. A bunch of ; battle-scarred, dyed-in-the-wool braves ; «ere there, waiting for something better ! than they had. The leader dropped into ! his swivel chair. The humble reporters surged toward : the back of the rolltop desk and gazed steadily at the "swivelled up" boss. Murphy swung gently in the. chair. Ths reporters, being only human, didn't lik« j to spring post-mortem conversation. "I have nothing to say." said Mr. Mur . phy, in reply to nothing. That helped things a little, and*. the* scribes took it for granted that he would say something if pressed. A reporter descended from a sire whs survived the "Bloody Angle' fight In the battle of the Wilderness, screwed hi» courage to 101H> and shot this over ths top of the desk. "Do you intend to resign?" The boss . blinked, half smiled, "r^l'T i clled" a bit and then said: "Humph! The committee on rumcrs has been sitting again." "But the. papers state you win have to I get out." • "I have no mention of resigning." •Do you think the organization will demand your retirement? Is that tha sentiment?" "Not that 1 know of." AFTER FOUR LEAN TEAR?. TOO. ••It will be a difficult thing to main tain a strong organization, -without ■ places and office?, will M not?" ••Wa are just after going through four I years of that." -But not nearly so bad as it is lik-lr • to be now ?" • • "I have ans^'red that." •■What kind of an administration ar» -. c going to have in the next four years?" "Judge Gaynor ""ill answer that." "Have, you consult-d Judge Gaynor , about his appointments?" •No." •Will you confer with him?" "He is Mayor He will make hi? Ml I appointments." "Do you think the administration win ; b» successful?" "I hope «to" "To what do you attribute th- losa of the ticket"" "To the people. We did not get enough votes." "When do you expect to see Judg* CJaynor?" 'I have no appointment with him." And that is all Mr. Murphy would »ay to reporter?. He. Immediately went into consultation with some of th- leaders. among whom was - »r:(T Foley, who came in addressing Mr. Murphy as •Commissioner."
