Washington, Aug. 14. President Wil
son severely reprimanded Ambassador
Henry I.ane Wilson to-night for his ac
tion In Issuing a statement yesterday
criticising the British Foreign Of
fice. During tho day the President and
Secretary Bryan had seriously considered
summarily dismissing the Ambassador
from the diplomatic service, but finally
decided upon a reprimand. Tho rebuke
t the Ambassador was In the form of
p.n apology by this Government to the
British Foreign Office and a public state
ment by Secretary Bran.
It Is believed here that President Wil
ton's sole reason for not dismissing the
Ambassador Is that he Is loth to give
him the freedom to talk on Mexican affairs
which dismissal would carry.
The cable despatch sent hy Secretary
Bryan to Ambassador Page reads:
"The Interview given to the press yes
terday by Mr. Henry Lane Wilson, whose
rrslgnatlon as Ambassador to Mexico has
ln accepted to take effect at the end
ef his vacation, October 14, having been
brought to the President'! attention, he
directs me to ark you to call at the
Hrltlsh Foreign Office and say to Sir Ed
ward Grey that he disclaims all respons,i
Hilly for Mr. Wilson's action In the mat
tr and for the language employed ,by
him In his Interview and thai he 're
grets exceedingly that a diplomatic official
in the employ of thla Government shhuld
have bf en guilty of BUch an Impropriety.
In making public this despatch Secre
tary Bryan handed out the following
"A copy of the cablegram to the Ameri
can Kmlmssy was sent to Ambassador
Wilson. The President does not (go fur
ther ut this time because he takes It for
granted that the action which he Jhas been
"bilged to take In this matter Will be to
him a sufficient reminder of his official

Ambassador Wilson, It Is believed,

Both Sides in "Curfew' Dispute
Get Spine Chills Grand
Jury to Act.
Says District Attorney's Advice
Caused Riots Inspector
Dwyer Arrested.
The curfew did not ring for Heaty's
restaurant nt Columbus avenue and Sixty
sixth street this morning. After the police
had raided It four times since Friday
they were directed by Mayor Gaynor to
stay away.
Thomas Ilealy. hearing of the Mayor's
order, decided t close his restaurant
promptly at 1 o'clock. Either he did not
want to continue his defiance of the police
or deemed It wise to await the decision
In the courts. Mr. Healy posted this
notion In the restaurant last night:
"Mr. Healy announces to his patrons
and guests that to prevent any disorder
and disturbance he will closo his res
taurant nt 1 A. M.. or a little before, for
a few days only In order that his cus
tomers may enjoy peace and comfort
Tho doors of the restaurant were closed
long before t o'clock. The waiters re
fused to serve food or liquor after 12:30.
The restaurant was packed and more than
0,000 gathered outside, expecting to see
another raid. The throng became so dense
and so many persons demanded admission
that Mr. Healy, who had been trylns to
keep the police away, telephoned for po
licemen to keep back the crush. Patrol
men were sent from the Went Sixty-eighth
street station.
When Inspector Dwer heard of the
throns In front of Heulj's he hurried to
the place, called out the police reserves
and sent for his own squad of plain
clothes men. More than fifty policemen
arrived and all were needed to keep the
people back from the restaurant. Dwyer
ordered that the men be kept on the move.
There were many fights among perons
In the throng. Pickpockets also were busy
and several perons reported that their
watches or purses were stolen.
The Mayor's order to Douglas I. 'McKay
acting Police Commissioner, telling him
not to disturb Healy's, which both the
Mayor and the pollco Insist Is violating
the liquor tax law. followed a scries of
events In which Magistrate Deuel Dis
trict Attorney Whitman, the Mayor, Com
missioner McKay and the police figured.
Those events were:
1 Aj M. Police Inspector John F.
Dwyer nnd twenty-five uniformed police
men descended on llealy's. nnd using
force In many Instances drove 230 diners
from the restaurant. District Attorney
was a witness to the affair.
11 A. M. Mr. Whitman went to the
West Side court nnd helped nine patrons
of IIeal 'a to swear out complaints
against the police, charging either simple
or felonious assault. Magistrate Deuel
Issued fourteen warrants for the arrest
of policemen, two and three warrants for
the same policemen.
Mayor .toomri Whitman.
12 M. Mayor Gaynor Issued a state
ment accusing District Attorney Whit
man of being behind the effort of Thomas
Healy, proprietor .of the restaurant, to
violate the liquor tax law. He Insisted
that Healy was violating tho law.
12:30 IV M. The Grand Jury called for
Mr. Whitman nnd asked for evidence
concerning tho actions of the pollco at
Healy's. Mr. Whitman promised to give
It on Monday.
2 I. 51. District Attorney Whitman
replied to Mnyor Gaynor. saying that the
policemen committed assaults on Innocent
citizens In the raid.
2 :30 P. M. Inspector Dwyer was ar
raigned before Magistrate Deuel on the
charge of felonious assault and held In
$1,000 ball for examination to-morrow
mornln'g. Five policemen charged with
simple assault were paroled In the cus
tody of tho Corporation Counsel.
4 :S0 P. M. Sluyor Gaynor held a con
ference wllli Commissioner McKay and
Archibald Watson, Corporation Counsel.
Following that talk correspondence between
the Mayor and the Police Department was
made public. The Mayor directed Mr.
McKay not to disturb Healy's.
If rues Grand Jury Inquiry.
6:30 P. M. Mr. Whitman made public
a letter from Magistrate Deuel urging him
to have a Gra'nd Jury Inquiry Into the
conduct of the police. He said the police
had usurped Judicial functions.
7 :30 P. M. Commissioner McKay an
nounced that the police would not ring
the curfew at Healy's. He said that the
1 o'clock closing order would bfl en
forced at all other restaurants except
those having all night licenses.
Tho day eided with what was regarded
by Thomas Healy, proprietor of the res
taurunt, and owners of restaurants along
Broadway ns a victory over the curfew
order. While the other restaurateurs were
content not to keep open they seemed
certain that the Grand Jury Inquiry would
repult In an Interpretation of the liquor
tax law that would permit places having
hotel licenses to keep open for the sale of
Mayor Ooynor nnd District Attorney
Whitman are at odds on that point. The
District Attorney stands on the decision
In Special Sessions, which was that Mr.
Healy was not acting contrary to law.
The Mayor contended that the law re
fers distinctly to every room connected
with a restaurant as being really a part of
the bar. He said that his construction of
tho law had been upheld by the courts.
Healy Asked to Teat Law.
The excitement which has been caused
by the raids by tho police on Healy's
tartrd much discussion as to the motives
ktiiriH t)i controversy between the nolle)
and Mr. Healy, There seems to be little
doubt that restaurant proprietors, looking
forward to tho autumn, when thousands
of persons return to the city, wished to
Increase, their profits by having the prlvl
lego of keeping open after 1 o'clock. Tlr-y

Many Bequests to A id
Supreme Court Justice Guy vterd.ty
decided that two bequests made In tho
will of Smith Ely, ex-Mayor of New
York, who died unmarried on July 1,
1911, were' void. Consequently the es
tate would be large enough to pay nil
the legacies. The two bequests declared
void were one of $50,000 to the Fresh Air
Homo for Crippled Children at Coney Isl
and and one of $5,000 to the Ely Ceme
tery nt Livingston. N. J. Mr. Ely's total
estate was Jl.l.'J.lM.
The testimony showed that Mr. Ely
spent the last few days of his life in dls-
I posing of his estate.
A suit to construe the will was brought
because the executors were undecided
whether the real estate, valued nt 42,
SS0, was to apply on the legacies or
whether only the personal property, of
$666,-16, was to be used.
The largest bequests were $100,000
each to the Children's Aid Society. New
York Society for Improving tho Condi
tion of the Poor, Board of Church Erec
tion of the Presbyterian Church and the
New York City Mission nnd Tract So
ciety. Bequests of $30,000 each were left
to the Orange Memorial Hospital. Mor
rlstown Memorial Hospital. Overlook
Hospital of Summit. N. J.. Morris County
Children's Home, Fresh Air Home for
Crippled Children nnd the East Side Mis
slon of the Madison Square Presbyterian
Justice Guy says ex-Mayor Ely must
have Intended that the bequests were to
be paid out of his real estate ns well ns
his personal property because he was
fully advised ns to the nature and value
of his property.
The bequest to the Crippled Children's
Home was declared void because the
home Is conducted by an incorporated
association and the tlegacy to tho Ely
Cemetery because the cemetery associa
tion Is not permitted to hold property
worth more than $r,000.

I'.uns, Aug. 14. Few Internal events In
America have attracted so much atten
tion In the Trench press as the Impeach
ment of Gov. Sulzer of Neiv York. The.
Interest In the affair, which n.n great
from the beginning, has Increased tenfold
since the declaration of Mrs. Sulzer that
sho handled some of thn campaign conttl
butlons ami speculated In stocks without
the knowledge of her husband.
The Joiimnf ilr Drhnta In commenting
on the latter phase of the affair says:
"What Is extraordinary In Mrs. SuIzt'.s
revelations is the attitude of this Amer
ican wife. Her husband seems to lie In n
fair way to succumb, but sho .shows no
disdain for a man who will possibly bo
overcome to-morrow. What Is mote, she
defends him by showing that she knows
nai sne is laiKing anout. rne prepares
a detailed report of the stock transactions
in wnicn campaign tunas, were employed,
'Thls " deserves attention.
This pens deserves attention, as It
shows a revolution In American conjugal
life. Hitherto our conception of the hus
band has been that of n breadwinner, a
money m.tker and a check signer, happy
In the fact that he was able to supply his
wife with money to rain dollars In Kurope,
while we thought that she Ignored the
origin of the dollars nnd often was almost
unable to say nhat her husband's profes
sion was.
"We must now renounce this prejudice
before Mrs. Sulzjr's detailed statement.
Such accountantlike precision would be
affecting anywhere, but tn New York It Is
Will Give atoo.lMMI If 25 Others ilo
