Mayor Gaynor's statement was in the [ form of a letter written to John Tack- I ney. a member of the Wescott company's I committee, which called at the Clty Hall. It read as follows: After your delegation of eighteen of the- ! ! taxicab drivers of the Westcott Company, at the Grand Central Station, called on me yemerdny. and assured me that all of your j j two hundred men were satisfied with their I wagep and f men t and wanted to bo , i back to work, but that the union would not j ' rermi' them to.

The employer? conceded the demands In ; respect of terms of employment, and agreed to take 311 of the men back without re eard to whether they J>«"ionj? to the union or no', and thereafter not to discharge any . one for bel^nsrinsr to the union. They thus conceded the "oprn 81107-." as> it la called, namely, open to union and non-union men i j wlthonl cli.«eriminution. But the union : ieadpr? demanded that every one be ex cluded lrom cmtiloyment exr»pt union men. and would not yield on thl£ head: in other i worr'p they demar;cl the "closed shop." i. '•■.

Very truly yours. W. J GAYNOR. Mayor. ; John Tackney, Esq. A crowd of strike sympathizers at tacked a cah belonging to the New York Cab Company In Astor Court. Just west \ of the Waldorf-Astoria, yesterday after noon, r.nd a woman passenger barely | escaped injury by jumping from the cab ; and running int^ the hotel when th» I I trouble began. The crowd ut the j j horse loose, overturned and practically j wrecked the cab, and grave th? driver, j Alexander Walton, of No. 20C> Ninth i ! avenue, a bad beating before the police j : intervened. The attack waa carefully planned. ! [ The strike sympathizers had concealed i ' themselves, some in doorways and some j in the alley which run? back of the Waldorf between .'?4th and 35th streets, ; and at a signal from some one who was ' acting as leader suddenly surrounded I the cab as it was enter?np 'the court. 1 Walton was pulled from his seat. His whip was taken from him and he was beaten over the head and shoulders with it. The woman inside the cah was quick to realize what was happening and she jumped out as the driver was being hauled off his seat. A riot call was sent j tr. the West 3Oth street station and the j reserves were turned out on the run. The crowd scattered when the police ap peared. Walton, who was bleeding from cuts on his face and head, was treated I by an ambulance surgeon from the New j York Hospital. i The p/->!icp arrested a man who was j said to be a ringleader among the riot ers. When arraigned in the Jefferson Market court the prisoner gave his name as Vincent H. Alien, of No. 28° West 114 th street, and said he was a chauffeur. He was held for examina- I tion in $1,000 bail on a charge of assault and malicious mischief. There was no other rioting- reported to the police dur in,«: the day. Reagan Calls on Mayor. Michael J. Reagan, of the State Board I of Mediation and Arbitration, who pre- | sided at the unsuccessful conference of th«- taxicab owners and the strikers' committee on Monday night, called on Mayor Gaynor yesterday and left a com prehensive report of thj» meeting. Mr. Reagan said in his report that th« I questions at issue were settled with the exception of the demand for recognition of the union, which wa.s in the following terms: "That only members in pood j standing of Local No. 1!«*.7 of the Inde pendent Brotherhood of Teamsters of America be employed"; and amended to read: "The employers shall have the I right to discharge any man detrimental j to their business without interference ! from the union." The proposition in its j entirety, was rejected by the employers' j association, the report said. Mayor Gaynor wrote his letter to Mr 1 Tackney after adlng Mr Reagan's re- \ port. Several members of the Auto Cab I Owners' Association called on Mayor ! Gaynor at the City Hall yesterday after noon. They were in conference with him ' only a few minut-s. and declined after- I ward to discuss the nature of their visit, j It was l<-arne ] later that they had asked | the Mayor for protection for their taxi- I •■.■ibs to-day, and representatives of ti: - ' association said they received assurance j that they would g«t police protection. The striking drivers and helpers of the i < xpresa companlefl who returned to work ; on Monday remained contentedly in their ! places yesterday The companies were moving the usual number of wagons and making a good inroad upon the ex press matter which accumulated during tho strike. The leaders in the teamsters' union: were strongly m.jectinK yesterday tr, the ! action of the Adams Express Company in refusing- to sinjlnj tivt- of the men i who had served r>n strik" committees. | Th*> sum»- complaint waa heard aerainst the American Express Company for noi taking back twenty waybill clerks and j checkers whp bad been on ■trlke.

Wednesday Sale Briefly Told Up to nearly 2 year? ago we disposed of Used Pianos taken in exchange for nev Knabes in semi-annual sales. Due to the enormous increase in recent years in the sale of the Knabe Piano in New York City alone, and the rapid accumulation of instruments of various makes (from the greatest to the least >. taken in part payment, and the fact that we could not attord to i:se our valu able floor space for the storage of used pianor-. even though our wareroorns are the largest in New York, we figured the way out was to thoroughly repair and remodel the pianos in our shops— TO MAKE THEM AS GOOD and in some cases BETTER THAN' WHEN THEY WERE NEW, and efter them weekly at such figures and on such easy terms that they would md IMMEDIATE PURCHASERS. The plan "took." and took so well with the public of New York that Knabe Wednesday Sales— an innovation that has become a permanent msi tution of this House— have reached the 100 th Wednesday >ale. Many thousands of music lovers who have taken advantajp of the extraordinary values have excellent reason to remember the Wednesday Sales, and to recommend "Wednesday at KnabeV to their friends. THE "NEW" FEATURE To meet the demand of a certain class of music lovers who feel they are not financially prepared at the time to buy a Knabe Piano or Knabe Player Piano, we have made a specialty of offering and will continue to offer at our Wednesday Sales the following exceptional Piano values from time to time.
