a tnunacrstorm which' played many
renk pranks and waa accompanied by
Jiuvy rain and vivid flaahea of lightning
wept over New York and suburbs last
night. The storm broke at about t
o'clock ard waa most aevero on Long
Island, though It caused damage on the
New Jersey snores and In The Bronx. It
lasted for more than two houra
One of the trlcka of the storm was
played on John Oreen, who was driving
on Ocean Parkway. He waa Just turn
ing off at Neptune avenue on his day
to his summer home at Linden Court,
Brlghon-by-the-Sea, when a bolt of
lightning struck the roof of his auto
mobile, ran through the machinery and
came out up the steering wheel. There
waa an ear-jpllttlng crash and Green
yelled, but when aid reached him It was
found that he had suffered nothing moro
serious thar. r. dislocated left arm. He
waa tai-en to the Coney Island Hos-
pitaL
Oldtimers at Coney Island who
watched the downpour of rain and the
brilliant electrical display expressed the
opinion that It waa the worst thunder
storm seen there In yeara The streets
were Impassable by half-past 9 o'clock,
railroad terminals were kneen-deep In
water, and even Luna Park made only
pitiful attempt to stay open.
When the rain began the thousand:!
of women and children started for the
trolley and elevated terminals, and for
two hours the police had a madhouse on
hilr hands. Women fainted, children
screamed and the whole scene was com
plete demoralisation. i
Lightning set fire to the hon. j Dr.
Renjamin Nussbaum, at 2029 Su.'.ivi-
nue, striking the roof, bpt the Fir De
partment soon had It under control.
The excitement caused by an alarm
from Surf avenue and Twenty-fourth
street died down when the Intrepid Firo
Department found that lightning had
struck a telephone pole.
Deep water In the streets made It Im
possible for the Sta Clate street car line
to operate. The congestion at the ter
minals of the three trolley and three ele
vated lines prevented any orderly dis
position of the crowd, and It was nearly
midnight beforo traffic was noticeably
cleared.
A horse attached to a deliver;' wagon
at Prospect avenue and If 1st street, The
Iiionx, became frightened at a thunder
clap while Its driver. Aaron Goldberg,
was adjusting the bridle, and Btarted a
mad dish down the avenue. Richard
Gallagher of 750 Hewitt place leaped on
the shaft and kept the horse off the side
walk. At 166th street the horse turned
Into Westchester avenue and crashed
Into an "L" pillar, throwing Gallagher
to the pavement Leaving the wagon
behind, the horse kept the streets clear
until he reached 141st street and Third
avenue, where Patrolman William Gross,
who had pursued in a taxicab, captured
1 im and assured him that there was no
danger In thunder.
Staten Island was In darkness for sev
eral hours when the electrical storm was
at Its height, the electric current being
turned off as a safety measure. The
streets and cellars In the borough were
flooded by the downpour In several
places along the water front, the water
being several feet deep. Movie houses
also were In the dark, the piitrons being
forced to remain seated without light
until the heaviest part of the storm had
abated.
A bolt of lightning set fire to the one
story barn of Henry Adams at Appleby
avenue. South Beach, burning it to the
ground. The loss was slight.

Eight candidates havo been nomi

fervent oratory Into their Irugul time al
lotments, but most of them declared

do much In seven minutes.
The nominees' are J. ,W. H. Eason of

clared that negroes will soon become
powerful In politics. He said that his

The mysterious disappearance of two
packages of bonds, one containing Vic
tory notes totalling 500.000 In value
and the other filled with railroad se
curities having a par value of $200,000.
was engaging the attention last night
of private detectives, city police and
postal inspectors between New York
and Milwaukee. According to reports
from MUwaukeo and Chicago, the bonds
were taken from tho malls. They had
been registered and were consigned to
the stock brokerage firm of Paine,
Webber Co. of 25 Broad street
One theory advanced was that the
missing packages had been stolen at
Buffalo and smuggled across the Cana
dian lino Into Montreal. Inquiries
failed to reveal why that theory was
entertained, the detective agencies em
ployed by the brokers exhibiting un
urual reticence In discussing the case.
At the office of Pnlne, Webber Co.
It waa stated that the firm was not sare
the bonds were stolen. R. I. Foster,
r,peak!ng for the company, said the two
packages hsd been mailed In Milwaukee
by the local representative and that the
investigation was based entirely upon the
Idea that whifc the consignment had
been protected in every way possible de
livery hnd not taken place.
A reward of $3,U00 was offered by the
Plnkerton Agency soon after It took over
one angle of the Investigation. The
money would be paid for the restoration
o! the bonds. It waa stated. A propor
tionate sum would be given for the re
turn of any part of the consignment.
It was learned that the case is being
Investigated by operatives of William J.
Burns In this city Hnd that before he
was called in In consultation private
agencies and municipal detectives
through the middle West had met wi'h
no success In their efforts to uncover the
trail of ,the thieves.
The bonds were mailed on July 2S.
According to information reaching here
last night they were placed in one mall
pouch. It was reported first that the
pouch was delivered to the Chicago office
of Paine. Webber & Co. and there found
to havo been tampered with. Mr. Foster
denied the statement and said no mem
ber of the firm had seen the packag
since they were delivered to the post
o.fnce at Milwauke.
According to a list of the bonds anil
their numbers circulated to police au
thorities throughout the country by the
Plnkerton Agency, all the securities had
their coupons attached. The bonds In

There Is being shipped from Dayton
to New York to-day a little monoplane,
which from wins; tip to wins; tip meas
ures- only twonty-rwo and a half feet,
but which aeronautical engineers believe
to be capable of a speed of mora than
200 miles an hour It Is the Dayton
Wright "R. B ," designed as one of the
thr.se American entries In the Gordon
Bennett races In France, scheduled for
Seplrmber 27. The other two entries
come from the united States Air Ser
vice's experimental engineering plant
at MoCook Field and from the Curtlss
plant.
The Dayton Wright machine makes
several raJloal departures In airplane
construction. A crank In the Instru
ment board of the machine enables ths
pilot to raise bis wheels and landing
frame Into ths fuselage, at the same
tlmo flattening out the wing curve, thus
lessening wind resistance to a consider
able degree. It is estimated that a
saving of from IB to II miles an hour
la won by this device..
Howard M. Rhtnehart, who with
Milton C. Baumann designed the plane,
will fly It In ths races. The machine
has a special Hall-flcott racing angina
of the Liberty Mix 160 aoretpower type.
Its body Is twenty-two feet long. The
wings are of rigid cantilever construc
tion and Instead of being covered with
fabric they are made of three-ply
veneer.

46th to 47th St., Park to Madison Ave.
Despite the Summer dullness, a number of large

chasing Office Space on the Park-Madison Owner
ship Plan, while many other concerns are merely
awaiting their next Directors Meeting confirm
the purchase.
SINGLE FLOOR UNITS OF

Now being offered for sale to subscribers at a price which,
after charging 6 interest on the investment and 2 for
amortization, will cost them
$ Ja68 to $224 per Sq. Ft
until the investment is amortized. No rent charge thereafter.
For those requiring smaller space, certain floors will be
sub-divided.
In purchasing space on the Park-Madison Plan, subscribers
are protected by every safeguard.
An amount of space will be reserved for renting, the estimated
revenue from which will pay all operating costs and leave
surplus.
WILLIAM CRAWFORD Sty;
Purchasersof space In the co-operatively owned
mortgage-free- Park-Madison Building are buy
ing at a price considerably less than they could
possibly construct a building for themselves, by
reason of the magnitude of the project.
The cost of materials, purchased on this huge
scale, " ill be fur less than in the case of a build
ing of ordinary dimensions, tn which it would be
impossible to sell space for seven tiroes the annual
rental.
A new building of this high character also in
sures the lourest possible maintenance cost. In
old buildings Uie cost of maintenance is consider
ably higher.
The Park-Madison Building will hare the most
modern equipment throughout The elevators will
be arranged in "banks" designed to provide maxi
mum service at minimum cost Building depreci
.ation and maintenance cost in after years will be
miniiuixed by nicety of planning and close atten
tion to construction details in the beginning.
Based on my 84 years experience as a builder
In N. Y. City, I do not foresee any substantial
reduction in the price of material or labor. I
have, however, recently noted a general and
progressive Increase in efficiency and productive
capacity of tha labor force employed in con
struction work.
