DUE TO A SHORT CIRCUIT Brilliant Pyrotechnical Display in Signal Tower When Con centrated Power Lines Flash. As a result of a fire on the Manhat tan terminal of the Brooklyn Bridge shortly before 530 p. m. yesterday fully one hundred and fifty thousand persons had to walk to Brooklyn, and a few j thousand had to walk to Manhattan. A hundred thousand persons or more watched the progress of the blaze from City Hall Park during the height of the rush period, and those who had I left Brooklyn and were on the ele 1 vated trains at the time were removed from the cars with considerable diffi culty. while thousands who had started from the Brooklyn side on trolleys had to walk the greater part of the distance across the bridge when the trolley ser vice was suspended as a result of the blaze. Between 4:30 p. m. and 6:45 p. m. a train a minute leaves the Manhattan elevated terminal of the Brooklyn Bridge. With the rush in full force I about 5:20 p. m., a Brisrhton Beach I train, with Frank Helium as motorman, I was starting for the platform where it : was to take on the nine hundred pas i sengers which make up the usual quota of trains during rush hours. As the train approached the Fifth ave | nue platform on the southbound white line, there was a flash of flame from the 1 third rail. The contact shoe on the Brighton Beach express had grot caught under the third rail at a switch, and. as a result, a short circuit was established. Immediately there was a flash along the tracks from the south side of the : terminal, where the trouble began, up ! to th*? switch tower, where John Walker. the towerman. was on duty directing the various trains to the proper tracks. Short Circuit Melts Wire. The short circuit on the third rail away across the station caused the pressure to back up into the signal tower, where the power lines were concentrated, £-nd the short circuit established there melted the wire which led from the track whore the trouble occurred. The Halted wire fell across the five other live wires in the tower, and there was a brilliant pyrotechnical display, which : r roved decidedly unpleasant and upset ting to the tnwerman. He did not know which way to turn, and when George Gal taghan the electrician of the terminal, reached the tower a minute after the first short circuit occurred, the tower man was so confused that he did not know what was the best thing to do. Acting Captain Edward J. Bourke, of bridg-e traffic squad A. was standing on the Fifth avenue platform when the trouble started, and when he saw the explosion in the tower produced by the transmission of electricity thereto, he jumped across the tracks and ran up the ladder to the tower, carrying a chemical extinguisher. W. Little, a motorman. and Harry Thurber, main tender of the Brooklyn Kapid Transit, at the Manhattan end of the bridge, also climbed the ladder to the switching tower and aided in pull ins out the plugs of the various switches. Their work, however, was of little avail, for the power was still on in full force. and there was an occasional display of electric flames that spread terror among the thousands below on the platforms waiting for the various trains. Acting Captain Bourke, seeing: that the extinguisher which he took up to the tower was almost exhausted, climbed down to get a fresh extinguisher. By this time, all the plugs had been pulled and the other men had left the tower. leaving Callaphan. the electrician, turn in? on the chemical in the extinguisher. As Bourke started to go back up the ladder, there was another burst of elec tricity and in the midst of the pyrotech nic display he beheld Callaghan at his post. Alarmed for Electrician. The policeman rushed up the ladder, ,nd when l.c reached the top no one was to be seen in the tower. He jumped into the tangle of burned wires to try to find Callaghan. but soon discovered that the electrician, who was familiar with the tower, had made his way out of the i low ' window at the rear of the tower and was safe on the sloping roof of the bridge structure. Deputy Chief Binns and Battalion Chief Sullivan, with the men of the fire stations in the district, were on the spot soon after the alarm was turned in. They were handicapped by the fact that the electricity was still turned on. It was out or the question to turn on streams, as the electric current would have run up the Sheets of water and prostrated the firemen at th«j hose. J. B. Burns, the trainmaster at the terminal, telephoned to Brooklyn as soon as the lire started, but it was twenty live minutes before the power was dis connected so that the firemen could turn on streams. In the mean time they used chemicals and chopped away por tions of the woodwork about the tower. The smoke from the burning tower spread throughout the second floor of the train shed, and thousands who had boarded the P.idgewood elevated trains or were waiting on the platforms for the Fulton street city line and other trains pressed downstairs, crushing back the thousands who pressed upward to try to get home. The reserves from the Oak street station and from Police Headquarters were called out to rein force those of the bridge traffic squad, but they had I•• greatest difficulty in controlling the tens of thousands who ofe«»ed forward and tilled City Hall L ,l ttor o and the approaches to the bridge.

Two of them rode to court as prisoners in the "Black Marie 1 " from the West 47th street station; others walked thither under the escort of policemen with a crowd of jeering citizens at their h<*els. and sev eral had the fists of local bosses shaken in their faces.

When the polls opened Miss Do. k in sisted on leading Miss Herendeen and M'sp Leonard inside the guard rail. "Put those women out!" roared James Campbell, a local Tammany boss. "They're Lnterferin' the proceed in* s." But Miss Dock. planted her hack against an election b..x and exhibited her cn-denflals. "We have a perfect right in here," she said, smiling amicably at Mr. Campbell. who by this time was reinforced by Robert Jackson, chairman of the f»th Election District, and three policemen. "Put her ' out!" he bellowed to the i chairman, who was there as inspector. "Why don't you put her out?" the in spector asked of the three policemen. A little later the officers did put her out Miss Dock challenged two voters whoso names, she said, were not on the voting list, and a general row, in which Campbell, Jackson and the waiting voters all Joined, started. One voter took the part of. the women, and ad vised Campbell to "keep his nose out of trouble," but the police ended the trouble by taking Miss Dock and Miss Leonard to the West 47th street station and thence in the patrol wagon to the court, in West fi4th street. Magistrate Kernochan proved ■ friend and savior. Leader Curry pleaded hard to have the women adjudged guilt? of violating Section 4 of the electing law, which states that voters shall be ap pointed as watchers, but the magistrate pinned his faith to Section 51). which provides for the appointment of watch ers without specifying sex or quality. Whereupon Miss Dock and Miss Leonard marched triumphantly back to the poll ing place and challenged more voters.

MAY ARREST MAN TO-DAY President Nash Says Case Is in District Attorney's Hands — Amount Said To Be $125,000. District Attorney Whitman began an investigation yesterday of a complaint made to him by officers of the Mercan tile National Bank. It was learned that it rela&d to transactions aggregating between .5125.000 and $130,000. The other party to the transactions, which cover pl lone: period, was under surveil lance last night by detectives of the District Attorney's staff, and an arrest may be made to-day. The name of the man in question could : net be learned. Officials of the bank | were reticent, and neither the District | Attorney nor his assistant. Robert E. ' Manley, who was assigned to the case, i would discuss it. From reliable sources it was ascer tained, however, that varying sums were ! paid by the bank from time to time to ' the man under surveillance upon al f leged false credit statements, made either to the bank direct or through some mercantile agency. A statement has been obtained by the District Attorney from the accused man. who voluntarily visited the former's, office yesterday and went over the mat ter, the officers of the Mercantile Na tional Bank, who made the complaint, being present. The conference lasted fully two hours. Apparently the in formation laid before the District At torney was not sufficient to justify an arrest, but detectives were assigned to see that the man did not leave the city. At the same time, it was reported, an effort will be made to gain access to certain books and documents, and upon the outcome will depend whether or not an arrest will be made to-day. The I suggestion of impending developments was confirmed by District Attorney Whitman. "You will understand to-morrow why I cannot say anything at this time." he said. Willis G. Nash, president of the bank, said last night: "We to-day brought to the attention of the District Attorney the case of a man who obtained credit by making false statements and by misrepresenta- I tion. There is an uncovered balance due of about £34.000. We expect to hold re sponsible for this balance a German I mercantile and banking house reputed to be very wealthy and highly honorable. The accused party was the duly accred ited agent and representative of this German firm and they are therefore re sponsible for his acts. We brought the matter before the District Attorney be cause we feel that the party should be properly punished for his misrepresenta tion."

After learning the results in v-v -' York County.
