When a wagon drove up In front of the
offices of the Public Service Ootnmlselot
yesterday and half a doeen men proceeded
to remove what seemed to be bodies of
human beings a crowd quickly collected
The first idea that the throng BOOmed to hays
was that the inanimate figures were those
of persona who had been In a railroad acci
dent and that they were brought to the
cffloea of the commission as some sort of an
Tho figures were dummies that are to bt
used In the testa to be made In Boheneqtdy
andPlttaburg of many types of fenders and
wheel guards with which the board is to
experiment for the purpose of ordering cart
in this city to be equipped with a device thai
will tend to lessen thebes of life every yeai
in New York by the running down of per
sona on the streets There wore three
figures delivered yesterday one of a man
another of a woman and the third of a boy
They were mad of papier macho1and each
was so modelled and dressed to the minutest
detail as easily to give Impression that
they were not lay figures
One of the officials of the Public Service
Commission t with some glee yesterday
I that while he was standing on the sidewalk
he heard one of the bystanders say Well
I guess they are not the only dummies In the
The first testa of the safety devices will be
held In Schenectady next month The ex
periments will lost at least two weeks A
complete pickup or removal from the track
by a fender or wheel guard shall count four
points If any part of dummy remain
under the fender guard three potato shall
becounted if the dummy is for the most part
under tho fender or guard but still la par
tially picked up two points shall counted
if the dummy Is entirely under the
fender or wheel guard but dragged suffi
ciently to prevent it going under the wheels
of the car one point shall be counted
The tests at Pittaburg which will be hold
In that city for the convenience of the West
ern manufacturers will begin on October 20
It is the expectation of the Public Service
Commission that as a result of tho experi
ments at Pittaburg and Schenectady it will
be possible to provide safety equipments
for the cars of the city that will greatly re
duce the number of deaths by accidents on

for the Uplift of Farmer
ITHACA N Y Aug 18 Liberty Hyde
Bailey director of the New York State
College of Aclu who was appointed
han of President Roosevelts com
mission for the uplift of the farmer has
reconsidered his refusal to serve as bead
of the commission I Is understood that
Mr Roosevelt baa urgently requested Dean
Bal t take the job and that his hopes
for the success of the project ore largely
based on what the Cornell agricultural
expert can do in shaping the action and
scope of the commissions investigation
Many telegrams and letters h ave poured i
on Prof Bailey from farmers agricultural
educatorspublic men and Cornell alumni
from every section of the country asking
that he reconsider his decision and take
the position These letters have come In
ever since his declination was published
The greatest obstacle in Prof Baileys
way Is his directorship at Cornell which
takes all his time He would be unwilling
his friends say to undertake the work of
the commission unless be was assured that
he could give his best efforts adalof
his time t the prosecution of the work
Unless Cornell University will relieve hurt
temporarily of his position and give him
a leave of absence he will not serve

Oliver Horfords Devil Henry W
Swages presentation and the Devil
possessed In common by David Belasoo
ind Harrison Grey Flake bit the town
simultaneously last Bight and roused Broad
way to B pitch of excitement high that
nobody went to bed until they turned out
the lights in the restaurants
Mr Savage produced Fereno Molnors
three act play The Devil at the Garden
Theatre the adaptation by Oliver Herford
Mr Flake brought out at the Belaaoo Thea
tre exactly the some play but to a different
aptatonbyAlODllder Konta and William V
Trowbridge Lamed
Both Mr Flake and Mr Savage la stats
month made in the last twentyfour houra
to the effect that each had the American
rights to the play with the further Intima
tion by Mr Savage that Mr Fiake was
playing it low down on him in producing
The Devil at all had aroused so much
interest generally that when It came time
or the curtain to go up at the Garden and
at Belasooa night theatres twice thaj
alEe of Mr Savages Madison Square house
and Mr Belaaooa Forty eoond street
theatre wouldn t have held the crowda
Atlemat a thousand people were turned
away at each place and an hour before
the bolla tinkled for the lifting of curtains
the police were busy shepherding f people
Into some approach to order upon the side
Naturally tho friends of Mr Savage of
Oliver Herford and of Edwin Stevens Mr
Savages devil crowded the Garden
Theatre and applauded tempestuously
while on the other hand the friends of
Mr Flake of Mr Bola of Mr AmUse
and folks In sympathy with the lndo
pendents swarmed Into the Belaaoo and
beat their hands together at every cynical
phrase uttered by George Arlles Mr Flakes
devil As a result the audiences were
ruled by emotion rather than unbiassed
dramatic criticism In both theatres at
the fall of every curtain the applause waa
continuous and demonstrative In each
case prompted largely by enthusiastic
sentiment In which critical analystsbad
small part
Owing to the artistic prestige George
ArK who was long the support ptMn
Fiskertbe dramaUb crmoflflockedt6 Bef
liscbs almost without exception Re
porters with a knack for dramatic news
went to the Garden Theatre to see what
Mr Savage had managed to acoompliatfin
a spasm of energy which haled principals
I from six States drove them through their
I parts and hurled them out to compete
with Mr Fiakes more thoroughly trained
i company all in thirtysix hours
I The comparison of the merits of the two 1
reductions was left for another night
It was enough that Mr Savage and Mr
Flake were dangling devils in each others
faces all In the same evening and that
the friends and sympathizers of each
were uproariously applauding The sit
uation was entirely unique In the the
atrical history of the town
The story has been told already of how
Mr Flake sent George AmUse and the rest
of his company up IntoWestoheeter county
whore they lived under assumed names
and wore strange disguises rehearsed In
town halls and barns and when they were
quite ready to flash on New York did BO
with such dramatic effect that Mr Savage
busy rehearsing the Boston company of
The Merry Widow was for a few minutes
maybe completely hornswoggled Then
he took a long breath and got busy He
changed the name of the version of Molnars
play that he poe from The Cloven
Hoorunder which name it had been
shown In Hartford Conn back to The
Devil to match Flake and cracked the
managerial whip over the backs of his
His star Edwin Stevens was at the time
on Nantucket Island Mr Savage got him
by wirelttts Mr Stevens chartered a
steamboat which took him to Woods Hole
where hj caught an express train to New
York He arrived at Matt Haven at 159
Monday morning wbeie an automobile
was waiting for hin Straight to the
Garden Theatre at something less dan
sixty miles on hour the automobile took
Stevens where all night rehearsals had
started already under tho direction of Mr
Savage Mr Herford and Robert Milton
Mr Savage held them hard at work until
daylight yesterday morning six hours of
teady grind There was a short Interval s
then for breakfast and rest and then at
II oclock In the morning Ma Stevens and
the rest of the company went back to work
and plugged away until 7 oclock last night
A few minutes more than an hour later the
audience was In the Garden Theatre ap
plauding a company of actors who ap
peared as fresh and energetic as If they
had been resting letter perfect for weeks J
In the boxes and scattered among the
auditorium seats at Belasoos were most of
Mr Belaaooa stars Charlotte Walker
Frank Keenan and Blanche Bates among
the number Also there were Ada Lewis
Lee Shubert and other friends and ad
mirers of Mr Belasoo and MrArllss
At the Garden Theatre f Mr Herfords
and Mr Savages friends filled the boxes
and orchestra seats Mrs Oliver Herford
entertained a box party and hi the opposite
taP boxes wore Harrison Flaher Will B
Barnes and other dose friends of the man
ager Mrs Ethel Watts Muinford and a
party of friends occupied another box
After the adaptor finished tinkering
with the Hungarian newspaper mans
drama the result wo essentially same
is to the general theme but Mr Herford

fellow who played pranks and mad jokes
and whose wickedness was sugar ooatfK
rather thickly especially la the bet
