ALL DOWNTOWN LOOKING UP Fleet of Toy Balloons Cause Crowds of Upturned Faces. All the downtown streets of Manhat tan for a couple of hours yesterday af ternoon w«-e filled with persons ftlllj watching the gyrations of a fleet of balloons that were floating over the sky scrapers from the Jersey side. The win dows of the tall buildings were filled with men and women and busy corners were congested with crowds. Many opinions were voiced concerning the mysterious visitors. Pome persons said they must be at least five thousand feet up. and a few thoueht they could discern two or three passengers in each. Cthers said they were just toy balloons used as advertisements. These latter proved to be right as to size, hut if the balloons were used for advertising pur poses there was nothing In their appear ance to show it. The last of the balloons passed over the lower city about .> o'clock, floating in th* direction of Long Island. While the spectacle lasted the police had their hands full keeping the streets and side walks clear. STATEMENT FROM HEARST Cables Reply to Charges Made in Mayor Gaynor's Letter. "The New York American" sent out last nijrht the following cabled message from William R. Hearst in response to a request for a statement in reply to the charges of Mayor Gaynor made in his letter to his sister. Miss Mary E. Gay nor. of Utica: Enghlen-les-Bains. September 21. I am exceedingly sorry that Mayor Gaynor was shot, and if Mayor Gaynor has said what you tell me I can only add that I am exceedingly sorry that his in juries have affected his mind. After his apparent recovery Mayor Gaynor expressed the hope that his ill ness would make a better man of him. Many others entertained the same, hope, but unfortunately his experience did not abate his evil temper or his lying tongue. The criticism of some of Mayor Gaynor's public acts by the Hearst pa pers has been temperate and truthful, dignified and deserved, unprejudiced and in the public interest. A public man who would make a false accusation in the attempt to suppress all public criticism of his acts is a man who is afraid or ashamed to have atten tion called to the part he is performing. "The World" has persistently and per tinently asked: "Who is the masked man who i* employing Maurice Minton to canvass for Gaynor for Governor?" "Who is the masked man who is supply ing the cash in the attempt to nominate Mayor Gaynor for Governor?" "The World" might further ask. with perfect propriety; "Who usually employs Maurice Minton in politics?" "Who owns I large green automobile and some times lends it to his judicial friends?" Who would particularly like to control the Public Service Commission in the matter of new subways? Who would naturally make every ef fort to nominate for Governor a man who before his election as Mayor had said that the people ought to build the new subways, and after his election de clared that the corrupt and incompetent Interborough ought to build the new subways? In asking all these questions "TJie World" would be acting in strict, ac cordance, with the public interest, and onjy that man could object who had a guilty knowledge and a guilty dread of the truth. The Hearst newspapers and all honest newspapers will continue to hold public men to their public pledges and to their public duty. The appalling conditions lately re vealed at Albany, at Pittsbursr. in Cali fornia, In Illinois, in Mississippi show the absolute necessity of public vigi lance, and indicate the extent of the cor ruption that would prevail if news paper publicity — the one power that every scoundrel fears — were withdrawn. The Hearst newspapers will continue to exercise a public censorship which I h^j-^ will he always intelligent and al ways feariess. I personally • ill not take advantage of your columns to criticise Mayor Gaynor politically: first, her hit of his illness, and. second, because his mental as well as his moral condition has eliminated him from political consideration. WILLIAM RANDOLPH HEARST. PAYS DUTY ON OLD CLOTHES Novel Incident in Present Rigid Customs Enforcements. After being held three hours on the White Star pier, Miss Gertrude Van Pelt, who arrived on the Teutonic last night. was permitted by the customs men to start for Philadelphia, upon agreeing to pay »_-■ duty on Parisian gowns brought into this country a year ago. When Miss Van Pelt, who is a mem ber of Philadelphia's society, returned last year she declared only (100, the amount allowed to enter duty free, al though according to her own admission last night she brought new gowns at that time worth more than $500. This car/;- out last night after Inspector A. E. Meyer made the discovery that a handsome tailored Boat of a rich purple which she wore on this year's return trip was alone worth $120, $20 in excess of the value she had placed on all her foreign purchases on this last trip. Miss Van Pelt said she did not include that suit in her declarations, as well as others that were found in her trunks, because she bought them last year and they had been worn. "How much duty did you pay then?" fjue.=tione^ the \r.sp r . tor. Then Miss Van Pelt confessed that she had brought the gowns In a fear ago without declaring tb«m. ami upon Acting Deputy Surveyor John O'Connor being called into the case she screed tn pay a duty of $24'\ which represented ■ slight rfducticn because of the. fact that the gowns bought a year ago had depreciat ed in value from wear. Thus she was able to avoid a charge «.f smuggling. •BOB" TAFT ENTERS HARVARD Will Study Law with Philbin and Wodell, Yale Classmates. IBy T>l*fTarh to "Hjp " • DM ] Sew Haven.

It Is Said, in CcnnectiG n with Broadway Resort BAKER TO GIVE EVIDENCE Grand Jury Investigation of "Wide Open Town' Likely to Be Protracted Beyond Its Kegfular Term. The grand jury is expected to report indictments to-day against at least one of the alleged gambling places on the list submitted to District Attorney Wh<*map by Acting Mayor sfHlheL It is known that the indictments, in which four defendants are named, have been ordered by the grand Jury. The investi gation wOl be continued to-day, and among those who will testify will he Po lice Commissioner Baker. The place agains T which the indict ments will be aimed, it is understood, is in Broadway in the heart of the Tender loin It is not. however, a gambling place in the sense intended by the law relating to "common gambling." but comes within the scope of the law re latine to poolrooms. The offence <:hareed wi!' be a misdemeanor, and not a felon y The poolroom in question, it was said, is reached through a caf£ on the ground floor At least one man of national reputation in sporting circles was said tc> be interested in the cafe, althoueh whether or not he <s on« of the de fendants in the indictments is not known. The place received notoriety re cently in a grand jury investigation. Mitchel Charges the Cause. The indictments will be the first fruits of the grand jury's investigation of the wide open condition of the city alleged by Acting Mayor Mitchel, growing out of the controversy between him and Polio* Commissioner Baker. Tt is understood that they were or dered by the grand jury on evidence ob tained by Edward C Becherer. an in vestigator for the Bureau of Municipal Research, and John Fitzpatrick, one of Commissioner Fosdick's investigators. ■Recher»r and Fitzpatrick were the only witnesses before the grand Jury yesterday. Commissioner Fosdick called on District Attorney Whitman twice during th* day, as did also Assistant r-orporati^n Crowell, the acting Mayor's legal adviser, but neither went before the grand Jury. Police Commissioner Baker also called on District Attorney 'Whitman yester day afternoon and said he would like to be a witness before the grand jury. At the puergestion of the District At torney Commissioner Baker made a for mal request in writing to be allowed to t^stifv. The grand jury had adjourned for the day at the time, but the letter will be submitted to it this morning. Awaits Gaynor's Return. Acting Mayor Mitchel refused yester day to make any statement regarding the police situation or to comment on Commissioner Baker's statement that he was carrying out what he understood to be the policy of Mayor Gaynor. It was said by his friends that Mr. Mitchel was satisfied from his interview with Mayor Gaynor on Tuesday at St. James that The Mayor would take appropriate ac tion when he returned to the city Hall. There is no prospect that the grand jury will complete its investigation this week On the contrary, the indications are that it will be protracted beyond the regular term of the grand jury which has it in hand. Magistrate Joseph Corrtffan, who re cently made a tour of the city to .-hserve renditions in the streets and in saloons which have been the subject of contro versy between the Police Commissioner and th»- acting Mayor, declared yester day that New York was "wide open," and that so far as he could observe vice was being more openly flaunted in the streets than ever before.

Sept. 21.— A state wide fight to defeat Governor Harmon for re-election was started here to-night at a meeting of representatives of fifty labor organizations of the state. This was decided upon when the Governor flatly turned down a labor committee which asked him to exert his influence for a settlement of the "local streetcar strike by declaring publicly for arbitra tion. Harmon was bitterly denounced in speeches by labor leaders, and delegates were instructed to organize their respec tive locals to work against Harmon throughout the campaign. The tight Is to be carried into every county of the state.

Christian Klei. a probationary police man Ifss than a month in uniform, will probably come in for a Carnegie hero medal for the manner in wa** he savel the life of a painter who. unconscious from the fumes of tur^ntine. was im prisoned in a tank in the basement of Mr. Carnegie's house, at Fi'th WMM anil !«>th street, yesterday a/UrnoOßJ. Klei was in the tank himself for about ten minutes with the air supply cut off, and he came wttnfß an nre of •■•ocat ing. He had a hard time getting in an.l a hard time getting out, and had a harrier time getting the unconscious painter out. but he seemed to think last night that his experience was nothing unusual in the daily police routine Klei was at 01st street and Madison avenue at 330 o'clock yesierday after noon when Charles Pteingut. the care taker in Mr. Carnegie's home, ran to him and told him of the painter's plight He had been enamelling the inside of an oval suction tank, about '2f> feet lons. .=> feet high and ♦> feet in its widest diam eter. which could be entered only through a circular hole, about two feet ir, diameter, near the top. and was over come by the fumes of the turpentine in the enamel he was using and dropped to the bottom after a cry that attracted Steingufs attention. When Klei reached the place he lost no time in stripping off his blouse, shirt and belt and then plunging into the hole as far as he could get unassisted. Then he called on Pteingtit to push him in. but it took much straining and twist ing and doubling and undoubling of arms before he was squeezed through. Klei raised the unconscious painter and tried to shove him head first through the hole, but the hottom and sides of the tank were slippery from Wwl enamel, and he had a good deal of diffi culty keeping his footing. After more than ten minutes of hard work the painter at last was got out, and Mr. Carnegie's gardeners carried him into the open air. where he was laid on the iron master's lawn. Then they pulled the policeman up. He came out head first, of course, and had the advantage of the air, but he was still very dizzy and weak when he was at last hauled out and plumped into a chair. Dr. Mcßumey. of the Presbyterian Hospital, answered the call for an am bulance and soon revived the painter, who said he was George H. Lott. thirty eight years old. of No. 333 State street. Brooklyn. He was taken to the hos pital, where Dr. Mcßurney said he had better remain for sever?. l days, though there was no danger of death. The Carnegie home is on the post of Patrolman O'Connor, also of the East 88th street station, and O' Connor made out the report on the case to his lieu tenant. Klei did not put in a report of his own till he was warned by others that if he did not he might be hauled up for being off post. MR. BALLINGER DEFIANT Will Turn Searchlight on Lives of His Critics. Denver, Sept. 21. — "When I get foot loose from public office I intend to de vote a part of my time to giving to the American people some idea of the purity of the lives of my traducers. " said Sec retary Richard A. Ballinger this after noon at a dinner given in his honor by the Denver Chamber of Commerce and the Real Estate Exchange. "The public is entitled to know the hidden springs of inspiration which gushes in torrents of 'uplift' patriotism from these self-appointed moralists, and I shall heartily enjoy using the 'search light' when the proper season comes." The Secretary asserted the efficiency of the Interior Department was never greater than to-day, and continued: "I have no apologies to make to the American people for any act during my public career or in any private capacity. Standing securely upon my conscious rectitude. I defy all my critics and all my enemies, and with the deliberate purpose of fighting out the battle to the end.

Sept. 21.— The French press Is showing great indignation at the pros pect of the placing of a Turkish loan of $3O.OCXXOOO with an English group of financiers, headed by Sir Ernest Cassel. after the French government had inter- vened to prevent its flotation in France because it considered the guarantees in sufficient, and for the further reason that Turkey had refused Is give certain diplomatic cuarantees regarding French rule in Tunis and Algeria. The press charges that the acceptance si th. loan by this group will foster German de sires in Turkey.

It seems tsjnt prior to his ar rest Gleason had conducted a number of experiments, at which Granger was present, and had practically convinced him that he could transmute base metals into silver.

The collision is said to have been i caused by misunderstanding of an order in regard to the southbound extra cat's taking a switch near Kingsland. so that the northbound car could pass it. The southbound car. dispatched as -» limited, was running at a high rate of speed. The northbound loral also was running fast, and several minutes be hind it was scheduled the Indianapoiis- Fort Wayne limited. The. curve on which the accident occurred prevented the motormen of the two cars from see ing what lay before them. When the crash came, so terrific was the impac that the heavy limited car tore its way half through the local car. crushing it as though it were an eggshell. From a car filled with merrymaker* the local train was transformed into a rharnel house. A dozen passengers were thrown, dead and <!;. ing. «>n N>th sides of the tracks, but the greater num ber were crushed beneath the wreck. Bruised and bleeding men who had bare ly escaped death crawled from Baa debris. and with no thought of their own injuries began the work of rescue. Conductor Prevents Second Wrec'-t. Amid the confusion and the horror E. A. Spillman. conductor of the local train, preserved a cool head. Almost at the moment when he crawled, braised and bleeding, from the wreck, he thought r>: the Indianapolis limited, which *a.< fol lowing. He seized a flag and dash— l down the track and around the curve. A quarter of ■ mile further he stopped, planted the flag and toppled over .in a faint. The act saved a second and prob ably worse wreck. There were two physicians on tae train at the time. One succumbed to the terrible injuries he received a short time after the -wreck. The other set heroically to work- But there was BjS) means si carrying on the work, and many were pinioned under the wreckage and could not be extricated before death came to their relief. The other physician rendered what first aid he could without appliances and equipment for emergency use. Appeals for medical aid were sent to Fort Wayne and to Bluff ton. The traction company prepared a special re lief car with all diligence and hurried it to the scene, and Bluffton physicians made haste in automobiles. Story of the Crash. John R. Bo\ d. of Marlon.
