Washington, July 16. President Wlt

declaration of policy In regard to Mex

the American Ambassador at Mexico
city, to Wasdilngton at once for a con

This action was announced after nn
mpromptu conference between the

Ambassador Wilson cannot reach
Washington for at least a week. It is
expected that further developments
!n the international situation as far as
Washington is concerned will cease
until his arrival.
It is established beyond question
that pie I'resldi'iit's action was due to
tn united action of the. Diplomatic

Hradley, who founded Asbury Park,
Uradley Heach and most of the coast
resorts In this section, went up to tne
rtumo over Deal Lake this afternoon
and started to wreck a foot bridge the
city Is building to take the place of
the one he tore down a few day ago

He and his workmen were pulling up
planks when City Knglneer Hufus Sav
age and Howard Hullck, owner of the
Loch Arbour Hotel, to which the bridge
gave egress, tried to stop them.
Mr. Bradley is 83 yearn old and not
very strong, but that didn't prevent him
from trying to push Savage and Hullck
from the bridge and engaging in a
scuffle with them when they relisted.
Ho did not desist until two policemen
were sent for. He departed before the
police arrived.
The foot bridge leads from the board
walk here Into Loch Arbour. Mr. Hrad
ley had It destroyed when ho saw the
Imovlng picture theatre opened and bld
jdlng for patronage with big red and

'a new one built, and It was this, partly
completed, that the founder attacked

When Engineer Savage arrived one
of Hradley's workmen wan sawing
through a plank. Snvage put a foot In

j "Cut right through his foot If lie

I Then he walked up to Savage and

said. They grappled with him and the
'three went over on tho sand, a few feet
'below. Savage telephoned to Mayor
Dennett nd Councilman Meyer for or

Mr. Hradley sayr he will keep right

London, July 16. The theft of a
necklace consisting of sixty-one mag
nificent pearls, valued at more than
$500,000, which vanished while In tran
sit by mall from Paris to London, Is
engaging the attention of fifty of tho
best detectives of Scotland Yard. The
theft was reported lo the police to-day
by the owner of the Jewels, Max Mayer,
a Hatton Garden diamond merchant.
The necklace Is generally described
as being worth $500,000, but It Is In
sured at Lloyds for $675,000. A diamond
dealer who has been thirty years in
the business says It is the finest neck
lace he ever saw and is worth moro
than tho sum for which it was insured.
Itrrranl for tlr .Imrl.
Lloyd's offered a reward of $50,000
to-night for Information leading to the
arrest and conviction of tho persons re
sponsible for tho loss of tin Jewels.
Tho necklace Is described as consist
ing of sixty-one graduated pearls weigh
ing 1,259 grains. The centre pearl
weighs 47 1-10 grains, and the two ter
minal pearls 11 1-16 and 10", grains.
One round pearl weighs 27 grains.
Scotland Yard detectives say the neck
lace Is the finest In existence, the pearls
being of magnlllcent gradation and pink
hue. Their value lies nut only In their
size but In the manner in which they
are matched. The necklace was made
up to Mayer's order. Ho took Infinite
pains to find gems of the right grada
tion. Mayer has an office in Paris and the
necklace was sunt from there last
night. A postman delivered a regis
tered package at Mayer's home at
8:30 this morning. The package boro
the Paris postmark and French
stamps and on the back Mayer's In
itials were stamped. ' The housekeeper
took the package In Mayer's absence
and placed it In the safe. When Mayer
arrived at hla house at 10:30 he opened
It and found only pieces of sugar ot
thpsame weight ns the necklace. The
seals showed no sign of having been
tampered with.
The diamond dealer placed the mat
ter In the hands of the Scotland Yard
authorities. The pollco refuse to dis
cuss the case and Mayer Is reticent re
garding It. He declines to give any de
scription of the necklace.
The sugar Is of French manufacture
and this leads to the supposition that
the theft was accomplished on the
other side of the Channel.
Mailed In Pari.
Paiiis, July 16. Mr. Salamon, tho
Paris representative of Max Mayer, hur
ried to London this evening after the
Purls police had been informed by Scot
land Yard of the dlsappearnnco of the
$1,75,000 pearl necklace consigned to Mr.
Mine. Salamon said she saw her hus
band pack the necklace, which lias mndo
several trips In the reglsiered mall be
tween Paris and London. The post
olllce where it was mailed Is a few steps
from Salamon's otllce.
"My husband came back In a few
minutes," said Mine, Salatnon, "so that
any tampering with the package must
have been done In the post olllce, where

Tile reported value of the lost neck
lace is astonishing. If the figures given
are correct It may bo set down as one
of tlie most valuable, If not the most

Several years ago the value of a
necklace Imported for .Mrs. William H.
I.ifds by llernard Citroen, a Paris
Jeweller, was given as $350,000. Two
years ago both Judge Klbert H, Gary
of the Pulled Stales Steel Corporation
and Frank Jay Gould were reported to
have presented their wives with neck
laces of pearls valued at half a million
dollars each. Tho lale John Jacob Astor
presented his young bride with a siring
of pearls said to have cost $200,000,
Necklaces of these valucx excited tho

Governor's Prison Investipatotf
Cannot Substantiate Graft
Albany, July 16. Tho suggestion
made by Gov. Sulzcr In a special mes
sage to the legislature to-night that
$023,000 be appropriated Immediately to
buy u site and commence tho construc
tion of u new prison to tal.f the placo
of Sing Sing prison did not meet with
much favor In the Senate.
Senator Klon 11. llrown, the rtepubll
can leader, declared tr. Senate was get
ting tired of tho extravagant language
used on nil occasions by tlov. Sulzcr,
and that In view of the unfounded state
ments made in the past by the Governor
nnd bis special commUsloner, George
W. IHake, upon which Joseph F. Scott
wan removed ax State Superintendent of
Prisons, tho Senate should art with de
liberation on thin question.
"After tho Senate adjourned Gov,
Sulzer through subterfuge succeeded in
appointing a now Superintendent of
Prisons without the approval of the
State Senate, nnd this new man has re
moved each of the wardens of the big
Stato prisons, solely for political rea
sons," said Senator llrown.
Wanner AHvlara Delay.
"The Senate should hesitate to act
upon the extravagant language of the
Governor, which Is meant onlv for the
press, and should not be stampeded
Into giving Gov. Sulzcr or nny com
mission named by him any additional
authority In connection with tho State
prlt-ons," declared 8enntor Hobert F.
Wagner, tho Democratic leader. "I
saw n spectacle in this Senate chamber
to-day when Commissioner Make was
compelled to admit that his extravagant
charges of graft against public, officials
were not warranted by thu evidence and
I when put to the test he was unable to
substantiate a single one of his charges.
"The Governor should not hnvo per
I mltted tho Make reports, with their
I scandalous and unjust charges of crook
edness and grnft, to bi i-pread beforo
tho peoplo of tho State, as WuJie had
not u scintilla of evidence to sustain
these charges. The Senate will not art
on this message of the Governor's or
give a commission controlled by htm
hundreds of thousands of dollars tr
spend until they learn the true situation
for themselves."

j "It Is time the so-called special com-
iui?3iuiit-i n nuu ro-Liiui-ii experiw wno are
going through the State and appearing
before Grand Juries nnd furnishing o
tissue of lies against decent, honest nnd
capable public, sen-ants should bo
curbed," declared Senutor James J.
Frawley, chairman of tho legislative
committee which bos been Mnvcstiga-t-Ing
Commissioner Make and his reports
on the prisons. "Tho Governor nnd his
commissioner have attacked tho Dlx ad
ministration unjustly for graft nnd
crookedness, but tho Governor does not
tell the people of the Stnte of the Irregu
larities which are being carried on by
his own appointees."

After tho Governor's message vag
read In each house it was referred to
the Finance Committee,
The Sulzer prison site commission haa
practically decided to locate the new
prison to supplant Sing Sing In Dutchess
county, Ono site, situated bock of
Poughkcep.ile, near Hopewell Junction,
containing about 1,000 acres, has all the
advantages required, said Charles Ober
landrr, a member of the commission, to
night. This will probably be seleoted.
Mr. Oberlandor said nothing has been
done toward opening negotiations for
this site as yet, but that it was likely
that tho commission would close the
deal as soon as the Legislature appro
priated the necossary money.
