Cars Leaded with Rails. In seme respects the accident was one of the most remarkable that ever oc curred between an automobile and a train. The —tears knocked into the <iitch -were loaded heavily -with steel rails, and when the automobile crashed into the Eide of the train these rails were thrown shout md to one side, causing the cars to fall over. More than a dozen section, hands on the train were crashed and cut by these rails. The train was in charge of Luke J. Levin, cf No. 134 "Willett street. Ja maica, and -"as back southward across the Merrick Road at moderate ppeed. The engineer was "leaning out of his window, looking down the tracks. The crossing- at the Springfield Station i? like many others on the Long Island BaSroad's system, having as its only protection against accidents a bell and a flagman. At the Springfield crossing, however, the railroad tracks are in full vif-si- of passing automobilists on the Merrick Road for perhaps a quarter of a mile on each side, but the flagman's shanty, which is directly beside the gates, could shut off the outlook of a person almost beside It. TVilliam Peach, the flagman, either did not see the automobile and the train ejjproaching, or else he calculated on their bein^ able to pase each other with out aeeMenf for he made no attempt to !<vw«?r the gates until it was too late. The touring car, a larg« red machine of high power, was bowling along the Merrick Road toward Far Rockaway at si sp^ed of about twenty miles an hour. Eerbon, sitting at the wheel of his car. although he was looking straight ahead to the crossing, apparently made no effort to brir.g his machine to a stop. It Is thought he saw that the gates were up, and reasoned that he had the right cf way and that the train would stop l*fore it reached the crossing. Neither Lessened Speed.

VICE-PRESIDENT ABSENT Ten Thousand Farmer? Give Mr. Roosevelt an Enthusiastic Reception at Grange Picnic. [By telegraph to The Tribune.] ntfca, N. T . Aug. 23.— Ex-President Roosevelt aligned himself to-day with PreFident Taft, Governor Hughes and Senator Root in the first speech of his Western tour by lending, the weight of his influence to promote the renomina tion of State Senator Frederick M. Dav enport, whose candidacy has been op posed by Vice- President Sherman. To the candidacy of Mr. Davenport Mr. Roosevelt lent an impetus which in the opinion of many of his auditors will prove amply sufficient to insure the re turn of the Hughes Senator, who was chosen by Senator Root as the recipient of the telegram urging the passage of the Hinman-Green bill— a telegram which was sent with the hearty con currence of President Taft. Turning to Senator Davenport, who occupied a front seat on the platform at the second annual union picnic of the Herkimer and Oneida granges, Mr. Roosevelt said: "I am glad to see on the platform Sen ator Davenport, because the only kind of politics that I care for is the kind of politics where decency is combined with efficiency, and I hold that the only way by which a politician can efficiently serve his party is by making that party efficiently serve the people." The enthusiasm with which this state ment was greeted led Mr Roosevelt to add: "You will notice that my utter ances are free from ambiguity." Mr. Sherman Absent. Vice-President Sherman was absent. In the vernacular of the district he "had taken to the tall timber." But there were present more than ten thousand of Mr. Sherman's neighbors. Whether they were his friends might be seriously questioned from the cheers which greeted Mr. Roosevelt's remarks, and later those of Senator Davenport himself. The first annual picnic of these united granges was addressed by Governor Hughes, and he had an audience esti mated at upward of six thousand: to day special trains were run from all di rections, and ten thousand is a concerva tive estimate of the audience gathered to greet the ex-President in the great natural amphitheatre, v/hich rose like a well arranged auditorium from the plat form to the grove of handsome maples which crowned the crescent shaped ridge. Mr. Roosevelt's theme was the utiliza tion of modem methods and scientific knowledge f<>r the improvement of the farm and the betterment of rural life. arid hi? little homilies were delivered with characteristic emphasis and ptet uresqueness, but it was when he talked a that his audience become thor oughly aroused. His auditors went along with him a? he talked of agri culture, occasionally applauding, only a few men and women quietly slipping out. But when he reverted to politics his auoience took a new grip on it? chairs. then greeted the end of the period with applause. There were probably no members of the "old guard" present— they are getting scarce in this state— • tiad they been they would have re : a valuable lesson. Mr. Sherman's friends, by the way. frankly deplore his having permitted himself to be used the Wadsworth- Woodruff-Barnes coterie at the meeting of the state committee. Always Against Crooks. In the main Mr. Roosevelt stuck to the text uf his prepared address, though his digressions were the more entertain ing, as when he said, for instance, "I want to be able to recognize the Chris tian by th- waj he acta on weekdays," or again, when he declared: "I am the poor man's friend If the poor man is straight. I am the rich man's friend if the rich man is straight, and I'm against the crook, be he rich or pour."

It was clearly evident from the way that he reverted to the subject of moth ers that the ex-President in no way has c suit Ide i lews, although he did not actually discuss that sub .... T To tbe veterans who had escorted him to th< stand Mr Roosevelt paid more than one glowing tribute. Mr Roosevelt was Introduced by ?x rnor X. J.

WOODRUFF SOON TO BE HERE Both Sides Announce Intention of Going Into the Pri maries to Fight for Delegates. Battle over ?he direct primary reform without hop- 3 of compromise is the de cision of leaders of Progrr^ssivc and "old guard"' factions of the Republican party in this state. Both sides announced yes terday that they would go into the pri maries with the hope of electing dele gates to the state convention favorable to their end of the controversy, both declared that they would rakp the fight through the state convention. Both sides said they hoped to win. both sides admitted that it would i>* a mighty hard fight. "Old guard" leaders went jost one step further than the Progressives. Some of them said that if they were whipped in this, the right of their lives, it would mean that they would retire from ac tivity in the parry. Under this and =in:i!ar remarks ran the Implication that victory for the Progressives at the ron rention i ould come only under circum stances such that most of the "old euard" would have lo "retire" — they didn't say knife the ticket— certainly that a Progressive victory would spell defeat for the Republican ticket. -( ild guard" leaders in town last night predicted with certainty that Mr. Sher ■■ ai a name would go before the state convention and with much Enow of as surance that he would be elected tempo rary chairman. The procedure will be that State Chairman Woodruff, on call ing the convention to order, will aa nounce that the state committee has chosen the Vice-President for temporary chairman. Unless some delegate pro poses another name as substitute there will be no rollcalL I r a substitute nomi nation be made, a rollcal] will be taken and the fight to control the convention be begun. "Old Guard" Leader Talks. "Many friends of Mr. Roosevelt will vote for Mr. Sherman as temporary chairman, too," predicted one of the "old guard" leaders. "You won't find dele pat-.- to that convention very ready to annul the action of the state committee when th-Mr action would mean casting a vote against the Vice-President of the United States. You must remember that a ticket has to be elected after the con vention adjourn^ and that the Repub lican leaders and workers must go to the people for their approval. Would th^y get it if they Insulted the Vlce-Presf dent .'" The "old guard" is desperate. That much is plain. President Taft's letter to President Grisoom of the Republican County Committee repudiating Vice- President Sherman as his candidate for temporary chairman has enraged the Woodruff -Barnes- Wadsworth- Ward group of Republican leaders; it has in furiated them seemingly to such a de gree that they are willing to fight the President, tne Governor, the ex-Presi dent. all their fellow Republicans who disagree with them on the direct pri maries issue, and finally, If whipped all along the line, to quit politics. All the resources of machine politics will be. brought into play by them from now on to ele**t delegates who will stand by them. They will fight in the convention with the machinery of the convention at their disposal, using every advantage which the making up of the temporary roll of delegates can give William Barnes, jr., was at his sum mer home at Nantucket on Monday night.

Hoke Smith will be the next Governor of Georgia. He has decisively beaten "Joe" Brown, who wrested the office from him two years ago, after Smith had "fired" Brown from the Railroad Commission, The chances are that Smith win carry eighty counties or more and that his majority will reach 10,660. Two years ago Brown carried the state by nearly 10.000 over Smith. Smith has won in the cities as well as in the country. Smith has stood on the platform of "Progressive Democracy," fighting for the preservation of the Railroad Commis sion as at present constituted, for the present registration law, which was one of his measures, and for an anti-lobby bill. In the Congress districts the indica tions are that "Len" Livingston, Repre sentative from the nth. who is charged with leading the Georgia delegation over to Cannon, has met defeat at the hands of William Schley Howard. The charge of "Cannonism" has cost Livingston hundreds of votes.. Congressman Hard wick, of the 10th District, who has been bitterly fought by Thomas Watson, has won over his combined opposition. Congressman Lee has won his race. Congressman Bartlett is Indication? also are that Congressmen Howard and Edwards are penominated. The votes of the four Cannon men— Liv Ingston, Lee.

LIFE BATTLE ON HIGH ROOF Insane Man Tries to Drag Four Patrolmen Over Edge. Four patrolmen battled with an insane man who tried to hurl himself and the officers over the edge of the roof of a seven story warehouse at No. 311 West 40th street, last night. He was finally carried to the street, bound with ropes, atter he had given the police a half hour's struggle- Patrolman William Kuntz. of the West oTth street station, saw the man. known only as McLoughlin, on the roof of the warehouse- The man was throwing stones and bricks through the skylights. | Kuntz, before entering the building, was j joined' by Patrolmen Klassett, Bartels and Sullivan. McLoughlin heard the men climbing the stairs to the roof, and when they j opened the trapdoor he bombarded them I with bricks. Then he ran to the edge of . the roof and was about to jump when Kuntz and CIHSSStI caught him. i With a desperate wrench McLoughlin freed him self, and was preparing to jump when Bartels and Sullivan piled upon him. All three fell struggling to the roof. As Mc- Loughlin fought he tried to drag the two patrolmen to the edge of the roof. The other two dragged him back. The patrolmen then bound the man an ,l carried him to the street. On the way to the station house the patrolmen had to sit on the man. who lay in the bottom of th.- patrol wagon.

The man -was ■aeaafr scious. A policeman was called and he summoned a Believue Hospital ambu lance. The man was hurried to th<» hos pital and died in an hour. One of the letters found in the rosaa, addressed "To the Officer." said that the writer had left several letters, one to the Coroner, one to his mother and one to his wife, and hoped everything would be all right.

At the same time he la backing up the regulars in that he believes they did the best they possibly could with the unre liable information that was in their hands. -With the. creation of the Tariff Board under the Payne-Aldrich act. and the en largement of Hi power Ib/ provision of the last Congress, the President believes • a way has been opened to put the tariff on a scientific ha?:- for the first time in the history of the country The objection has been raised, and urged upon the President, that the open ing of an individual schedule of the tariff would mean the possible throwing open of the entire tariff act. with another long debate and a stirring ■■ of condi tions generally. Mr. Taft purposes to meet thla with the recommendation to Congress that be fore any schedule is taken up for further consideration a rule shall be passed both by the House and by the 8— provid ing that amendments to a certain sched ! ule of the tariff shall be in order, and ! that any amendments not germane to ; that particular schedule shall be declared ' out of order. It la believed that with a : workable majority in the two '" us - of Congress, and with the Insurgents hned up with the regulars for the ■»■■ ■■ outlined by the President, there will be little or no difficulty in putting through such a rule. Tariff Board's Work. From the first President Taft has been deeply interested in the work of the new Tariff. Board. He regarded the cre ation of that board as one of the most important provisions of the new tariff act. and one of the reasons for his dec laration that it was the best tariff act ever passed The President takes th€ ground that it was impossible to revise the tariff im mediately after the Republican platform was adopted and to revise M at the ?ame time on a basis of tart Mil ISM I in the cost of production at home and abmad. He believes that substantial pi siaaai was made in the Payne-Aldrich act. and mowi now that the Tariff Board has got : its inquiries well under way it soon will be possible to take up the individual I schedules as ISSi as the facts and ■•■ ures are available and revise them actu- ! ally on the basis declared for in the party platform. The President already has had two conferences with H- C Emery, chairman of the Tariff Board, this summ«r The first of these was on board the yacht Mayflower, at Bar Harbor, late in July, and the second was at Burgess Point, two w««ka ago. The President purposes to have the entire Tariff Board meet him here in Beverly some time in September. Professor Emery recently spent sev eral months abroad. James ■ Reynolds, a member si the board, has M abroad for a long time. There is ev«ry reason to believe that a preliminary re port from the board will ks available this falL Representative F.b**ne-^r J. Hill, of Connecticut, a member of the Ho - Committee on Ways and Mean* which drafted the first Payne bill, kM a confer ence with the President ten days or more ago. He agreed, it is said, that a revision of the tariff by individual sched ules was the best possible solution of the puzzle. President's Plans Changed. President Taft's plans for the early fall have been altered, and instead of go ing to 'Washington direct from st Paul. as he intended, it was announced to night that he will return to Beverly from the conservation congress.
