Sept. I 20.- Lowering skies had no effect <m -, the attendance at th< Piping Rock ! Horse Show to-day. Twenty-five clashes ' were judged. The show was held on the ' old show grounds behind the clubhouse, , ?where the first show was held by the club. The woods about the grounds, which ! have begun to take on their autumn color, added to the beauty of the scene I about the show ring, where women of fashion shared with the horses the ; attention of the spectators. Severn'. ? parties spread their luncheon under the tree?; just back of the grandstand. There are a n'umber of new exhibitors In the show, as every house has bee!? taken in this vicinity. This was espe? cially so in the hunter classes. There ' has been considerable cub hunting in the 'as; three weeks. Contrary to former years, the show hag more the air of being a neighbor? hood affair, as no large number of out- ? side horses are shown. ''The children's classes" in the morn? ing were particularly interesting and well filled. Little Jean Regan, with her Bantamite. made a decided hit in the class for ponies in harness. She w*i3 opposed by some of the best ponies to be found in this section, but won clev? erly from Cornelia Prim's Prim. The ponies were well matched. In the next children's class, limit fif- : teen years for the drivers, Constance Regan, a sister of the winner of the former class, was a winner with The Moth, from Katherine Todd's Rusper. green middleweight hunter class with Conisten, defeating C.

Bronstein, an X-ra.v ex? pert, tiled a breach of promise suit for SI0.000 in the Supreme t5ourt.?yes terday against Mrs. Stella Brown Schlcjichkorn. At the ..same time the alleged young man filed still anothi*r suit for damages and recovery against Mrs. Schleichkorn, in which her pres? ent husband, Henry Schleichkorn., a plumbing contractor, is named as a co-defendant. This suit i? for $11, 811 ,of which $10.000 is ?"demanded as damages suffered through the alleged conspiracy of the two defendants, and *l.sli represents shms of money and the value of presents which Bronstein says he gave Mrs. Schleichkorn when he regarded her as his financ?e. Bronstein says that he and Miss Stella Brown were engaged in October, i 1916. Their engagement was publicly announced at a reception he asserts, I at which one of the guests was Henry Schleichkorn. Subsequently M'iss Brown repudiated her engagement to Bronstein and married Mr. Schleich korn. That was in May, 1917. The matter has dragged along since then, because bot h Bronstein and Schleich korn entered the army. The two ."??.: yesterday were placed on the calendar for trial in October before Justice Greenbaum. in the answer of Mrs. Schleichkorn to the breach of promise suit, m ?ffe through Samuel H. Hofstadter, sh. admits the engagement, but alleges that it was he who had failed to keep his promise. She adds that while she was Bronstein's fiancee he subjected her to truel treatment and, anyway, that he is untruthful. Bronstein complains in his con? spiracy action that the affection shown by Miss Brown for him was only pre? tended, and in pursuance of an under? standing with Schleichkorn, to induce Bronstein to give Miss Brown money and articles of value, which the plain? tiff says he believes were for the mutual use and benefit of the present husband and wife. When no more money and presents were forthcoming, says Bronstein, he was jil^'d and dis? carded. Business Hours 9 A. M. to 5 P. ?nth Street \\ ?

Estate Managers Object The 5,000,000 people who inhabit New York, as they say ih the geographies, are preparing for the great annual1 game of "Pussy-in-the-Corner" which is played here every year on moving day, October 1. But the moving van men, contrary to lay belief, are not giv- ? ing any wild shouts of joy. Why not was explained yesterday by Charles Morris, secretary of the Metro- ? politan Storage Warehouse Company, and ices i dent of the New York Furni? ture Warehousemen's Association. He I said : "Apartment leases in New York vir- I tually all expire October 1. That prac? tice is senseless, and results annually in the public being robbed and its household possession maltreated. The reputabble warehousemen get so con? gested with orders around the 1st of October that they have to decline or? ders to move families from one apart? ment to another. They are much too busy then taking care of people who aro moving their furniture either into or out of storage. "That leaves a clear field to the fly by-night follow who rounds up a crew of men in some saloon backroom a few nays before October 1 and g<Jes into the furniture pioviiig business. They know nothircg of service, and when they ' gpt through the moving van business ! has a black eye. "Our association has determined to! make an ?'ffort to correct this situation. We have appointed a committee to deal with the Board of Real Estate Brokers in an effort to persuade th<m to our way of thinking that it would be better for all concerned if apartment leases expired on the first day of any month rather than onlj? on the first of October. The real estate men are ] opposed to change, but fell that if the public supports us this change can be effected. "The situation ibis year is worse than ever, not because more people are moving, but for the reason that there are practically no new apartment 'nouses. In past years new. apartment houses that have become ready for oc? cupancy a few weeks or months prior to October have acted as a safety valve, as many families have selected the new apartments and moved in advance of October 1. This year almost every-i body has been held until October 1, The five days either side of October, 1 are going to be fearful. "The fly-by-night movers are taking advantage of the situation. I've heard of some of them quoting their van service up to $20 an hour for moving on either September 30 or October 1. That is nothing short of criminal. The service isn't worth it. "The members of our association are ; charging a fixed rate of $10 an hour j during the fall months. For the rest! of the year it is less." Several moving van concerns, when ! invited over the telephone yesterday to quite prici s for moving on October 1, said they were "booked up." One con- I cern said it could still take a few or- | deis at $1- an hour for each van. One of these moving men, who said he ? couldn't take any more orders for three days either side of October 1, said he ! was charging $15 an hour. Crowds See Mercier Depart for Baltimore Belgian Primate Cheered as His ! Special Car Starts ofr the Short Trip Cardinal Mercier left yesterday for j another visit to Baltimore. So great - were the crowds around the archepis- i copal residence prior to his departure j that the chauffeur of the police motor car assigned for his use had difficulty : getting through. Hundreds pressed around the car to shake the hand of the Cardinal. At the Pennsylvania station crowds cheered the Cardinal when he arrived. | Just before he boarded the special j car New York, which has been assigned to him for use as long as he is in i this country, he expressed his thanks ; to Patrolman John O'Brien, of Deputy , Commissioner Wanamaker's staff, and ? reiterated his amazement at police ar- ? rangements for his benetit. The Cardinal was accompanied to j his car by Monsignor John J. Dunn, ! Monsignor Joseph F. Stillemans, Aux? iliary Bishop de W?chter, of Malines, and George J. Gillespie, chairman of thi*. Catholic Laymen's Committee of Welcome.
