Two persons were killed as a result of accident Inrlduntal to the operation of the multitude of emergency motor buses called upon to taka Brooklyn folks to and from tholr places of busi ness. Last night, after conferring with Police Commissioner Bnrlght and Deputy Police Commissioner I.nhey, the B, it T. officials decided to resume surface car traffic to-day. They did not announce the number of cars to be operated. They did not announce on ' which lines the cars would run. But lines to arbitrate these questions was the sole and only causa of the strike." Mr. Frldtger was present. The Mayor turned to htm and asked him whether there was anything rft desired to add. "Only this," replied Frldiger. "The men will do anything except surrender their rights In order to restore service m Brooklyn. This strike Is as distasteful Ic them as It Is to the publlo. I ask merely that the entire matter b sub mitted to a board of arbitration ; that both sides be bound to abide by the de oislon of that board. If the decision has It that the men ara not sntlllsd to a penny mora than they are gottlng they will agree to that. But the other side must agree to abide by whatever the de cision may be."

However, two officers one a Colonel and the other a Lieutenant were ob served making a reconnaissance of Brooklyn yesterday afternoon. The two officers, both regulars, were equipped with maps, and they made tour of all the Important traffic centres and ob servations along the principal surface lines. Borough Inspector Thomas H. Murphy announced at Brooklyn Pollco Head quarters lost night that he had 1,000 policemen ready to take their posts on surface cars. The B. R. T. declared that they had sulTlcicnt trained strike breakers to operate 600 cars. On Its subway and elevated lines the B. R. T. showed much progress toward normal service. Ninety-seven short trains, principally two and three cars each, were operated last night during the rush hours. This was an increase of forty-seven over Monday night. Sov-enty-slx trains were operated during the morning rush. During tho non-rush hours tha Lexington avenue line oper ated 100 per cent., according to tho Tub lie Service Commission's Inspectors. The rush hour service all over -the system was 15 per cent, of normal last night. B. R. T. officials aanounced that they hSped to restore servlaa to normal with in a few days. Police Heady for Trouble. Naturally, nobody in official position predicted trouble. However, Individual policemen allowed that Inasmuch as they were going to be on duty at strategic points at and nearby car barne and were to be equipped with riot sticks and sup ported by machine guns, they were not ngurlng on permitting any striker or friend of a striker to punch, stone, shoot, club or otherwise maltreat tbem without a "comeback.'' The cops talked philo sophically. They said that Just so long as robody started anything nothing would happen. Nevertholees the 4.000 strikers concend trated In the Brooklyn Labor Lyceum were of a different disposition. Individ ually they declared that they'd kill "scabs" and overturn cars. Their lenders Counselled and preached peace and made ssrlocM efforts to show' their followers that there was nothing nt all to gain by resorting to violence and everything to lose. Just how many strike breaker the B R T has Imported and locally re cruited is not known It seems prob able that there were more than 1.00U of them mobilized last night In the vari ous car hams and depots. Thomas Shine, a Roston labor leader, telegraphed to Mr I''r!d;er, saying that a strike bresklntr nirenry In Boston had been commissioned to recruit 1.200 hiwkies vho were willing to take :i chance for a d sllar an hour. TV labor leaders esti mate that at leist half the Boston quota I- here. Furthermore, shea and Frldiger say f'st about fi"0 or Son busters hive ar rlTtd f:om Chicago. Cleveland and Buf falo and that another strike breaking l?ennv in Chicago has been rommls lloncd to send 1.450 men to Brooklyn. Ml this of course, may be exaggerated. There was no way of confirming these figures But certainly the R. R. T. was preparing to have It out to-day with the strikers In every surface car depot nd barn trolley cars were being fitted Jore and aft with heavy Iron screening, through which no missile hurled by iand was going to penetrate. It was difficult to get very close to the )irns. Large, aggressive detectives aa I'tred the Inquisitive that what was to seen therein was .none of the public's 5'islness and that the ground thereabout vas private property and that It would 5e best to keep moving and forget It But It was p:ssible to see various heavy ihouldered Individuals loafing about in ilde the barns, and popular legend had t that these able bodied persons were he much heralded busters. If appear iMtl count. It looks as though somebody s duo for rough treatment. Whereas, the employee have made a bono fide offer through this board to Immediately return to work If pending differences are submitted to arbitration, and further agree to abide by the find ings of any award, this board feela It Its duty to accept the offer without delay." In the meantime Acting Public Serv ice Commissioner Barrett had sounded Judge Mnyer upon the latter's suscepti bility to arbitration mlk ot any sort. "I do not rare to discuss It at all." replied the Judge. "I'll write you a letter that will let the public know once more Just where 1 stand. ' So Mr. Barrett received tho letter In which the Judge announced that he would hove nothing to do with Frldiger und Shea and that he could not empha size that fact too strongly. In the afternoon the Board of Esti mate, with Mayor Hylan.

Inspired by HYLAN PUTS BUSES UP TO GOVERNOR Demands That Special Session Bo Asked to Consider City Operation. Mayor Hylan, hacked by the entire Board of Estimate, put his bus fight up to Oov.

The Hoard adopted unanimously a resolution call ing upon the Governor to Includo In his call for the special session of the Legis lature the consideration of Inglslutlon to empower the city to own and operate bus lines.

It was no secret that the Judge re iterated to his callers what he had written to Mr. Barrett. Mr. Garrison, looking n bit drawn, said he hod done everything in his power to avert the strike and to get the men back to work. "We had every reason to believe that the men would keep their agreement," he said. "But they failed to do it. The leaders either wanted a strike or were swept off their feet by the radicals in the organisation. All this talk about the B. R. T. welcoming this strike Is too absurd to be talked about seriously. If any ne can show me how a strike can Increase fares I will grant that he knows more about fares than I do. I do not believe that the subway motor men will strike.

Both said that they had contracts with their employees extending until Decem ber 31. 1921. Patrick Shea, director' general of the B. R.

T. men were think ing of striking. y "However." he added, "It Is true that a committee of fifteen employees of the New York Railways Company railed upon me at the Continental Hotel last nignt and asked me to take them Into the Amalgamated Association of Street and Electric Railway Workers. I told them that I would not take In fifteen or twenty Individuals, but that if they assured me that the employees of their company wanted to come In I would gladly organize them.

T. Traffic. Mayor Hylan Makes Proarress. Despite tne fact that Mayor Hylan, be Board of Estimate, the Public Ser riaa Commission and numerous unoffi cial persons and bodies started the day rylng to get the men back to work and lying to make Judge Mayer change his josltlon, It was not until the night mcet ng In the City Hall that there appeared m be any reason to believe that tho Tike was being won or lost by either dde. The Public Service hearing developed lothlng but a near fight between Mr. rrldlger and Mortimer B. Hoffman, coun lel for the commission. Mr. Hoffman eferrrd.to Mr. Frldiger as a loafer and t required the combined strength and ngenulty of four men to restrain Fiddl ier. Mr. Frldiger scoffed at Acting Public Service Commissioner Barrett's lugfestlon that the men go back to work md appoint a conference committee that vould be minus himself and Mr. sin a md otherwise acceptable to Judge Mayer. Mayor Hylan made progress. The daycr started out by appearing before he Board of Estimate and announcing list he had a letter from Mr. Frldlaer rhich he wished to read. He added that le had a pjan he wished to broach and , board suspended business to listen, rv. Hylan then read Frldlger's letter, rhich said : "In answer to your request as to the renditions upon which the employees of he various transit lines In Brooklyn will Hum to work. I have been authorised is their attorney to ndvise vu that if hose in. charge of the operation and con- rol of the different lines In tho Borough if Brooklyn will arbitrate the questions t issue that the men will return to work orthwith.

Will lamaburg Bridge was In a fearful way morning, noon and night. Fifty patrol men and twenty-five mounted police did what they could to keep traffic straight ened out there, and It Is probably that Ihey did everything humanly possible. Mayor Hylan, In his well known motor ear, got Into tho Jam early In the even ing, but did not, as on Monday night, try to straighten It out.

Three municipal ferryboats did heroic work carrying folks between Sixty-ninth street. South Brooklyn, and tli? Battery. It Is estimated that they took care of 3.1 00 people In the morning and about the same number at night.

Tho resolutions calling upon the Gov ernor to Include New York's trnnsit plight in the extra session call set forth a gloomy picture of Inadequate service sn.I charged the transit companies with fifty-seven different kinds of political and financial trickery. Including conni vance with employees for strikes to bolster higher rates of fare pleas. The position of the pubic was de lineated In the following pnrngraph: "Notwithstanding the fact that the people furnished the streets snd hun dreds of millions of dollars to secure decent transportation, they are helm; Jammed and herded like cattle In a mojt disgraceful manner Into the transit fa cilities, which are totally inadequate for the requirements of tho situation ," A Brooklyn Rapid Transit motor man and a passenger wore seriously hurt laat night when strikers bom barded trains of tho Sea Beach line with stones and bricks. John W, Fairbanks of 462 Prospect avenue, Brooklyn, a mo torman, was operating a Sea Beach ele vated train In a cut In Sixty-second street between tho New Utrecht avenue and the Fort Hamilton avenue station' when 11 brick was hurled through the window snd struck him on the head. Fairbanks fell to the floor of tho car unconscious and tho train came to a stop automatically. The motorman was ta ken to the New Utrecht avenuo station and thence to the Kings County Hos lital, where It was said that his skull had been fractured and that he prob ably would not recover. Ten minutes after the ussault on Falrbanks's train Strikers bombarded another Sea Bcdch train, a brick striking Fred Freldman of -ill Sixty-fourth street, Brotklyn Freldman also was taken to tho Kings County Hospital with a fractured skull, and probably will die. Crowds of strikers and sympathizers made several nttemmpts during the afternoon and evening to Interfere with strike breakers at various B. R. T. barns and at the East New York barns. Ala bama and Jamaica avenues, the striken, attacked a crowd of several hundred strikebreakers. Police reserves stopped the fight and arrested one striker Strikers stood on Dean street and threw rocks at strike breakers practicing on cars In the yards of the Bergen street barns, but they were dlapersel by the police. I'ntermyrr Aids Onated Socialists. The Socialist party organization of New York county, made public last night a letter from Samuel Untermyer In which Mr. V'ntermyer makes a contri bution of J200 toward the campaign fund of the five Socialist Assem blymen, who are candidates for reelec tion ot the Impending special election. At the 1. R. T. offices Mr. Hedley said that his system carried 600,000 more than the normal numiier of passen gers on Monday and probably would carry 600,000 In excess of normal yes terday. "This Is. of course, due to the strike In Brooklyn," he explained. "The Inter borough Is running its maximum train service to Brooklyn. We are not run ning any expresses to South Ferry, all being sent through to Brooklyn." The B. It. T. officials say that any strikers who care to return to work may do so without lors of seniority rights. Thus far tho strikers have maintained solidarity In their ranks. There are no signs of their weakening. Women ticket agents of the B. R T. are still loyal to the company. "All our members and we have 800 are at work with the exception of a few who have been frightened by threats," said Mary A. Murray, president of ti-.c B. R. T. Women's Equal Opportunity League, which represents the women. "One of the union officials said to mo the other tfay that the time had come to choose between the company and the Amalgamated. I told our members thatKadly crushed.

How about the union breaking Its word to the women after the war?" Complaints have been made already by members of the league of threats msde by strikers. The ticket agents at the Ninth street station of the Fifth I avenue "I." and the Church avenue sta j tlon of the Brighton line have told of sucn instances. In the latter case two striking conductors are declared to have Intimidated the women. Overcrowding qf automobile trucks and Improvised buses In Brooklyn yes terday resulted In two persons being killed anl probably fifty Injured. The dead are Thomas Fherson, 36 years old, of 528 Forty-eighth street, and EdwarJ O'Donnell. 7 years old, of 668 Wythe avenue. Pherson fell under the wheels of a truck of tho Robins Dry Dock Com pany, which was being used by the com pany to take forty employees to their homes. He died at the Norwegian Hos pital an hour after the accident. He was a blacksmith foreman. Tho O'Donnell boy was ran over at Wythe avenue and Taylor street. The wheels of a heavy truck passed over his body, crushing him so bodly thot he died before he reached Willlumsburg Hos pital. Anthony Leaowsky of 1091 Nos trand avenue, the driver, was held on a charge of homicide. Among the most seriously Injured was Peter Casey. 26 years old, a fireman at tached to Engine Company No. 211 and living at 341 Lafayette evenue, Brook lyn. Ho was run over by a truck while attempting to cross Lafayette aVenue at Steuben street. He Is in the Cumber land Street Hospital with both legs 50 Killed In Mexican Rail Wreck, Mex;co City, Aug. SI.

With nil the longshoremen on the Nitonian out, the women left the Hoosac docks for the Clyde street pier In an at tsmpt to have the dock crew working on the Leyland liner Caledonian Join the strike. Strikers discovered yesterday when they went to get their pay that by tying up the B. R. T. lines they had Incon venienced themselves. Many walked great distances, others paid the exorbi tant Jitney rates and others met In groups and came In truck loads to the Brooklyn end of Brooklyn Bridge, where the money was being passed out. The bridge local enclosure near Sands street was fitted up and two of the bridge local cars were used as pay cars. Eight clerks worked In the two cars, handing the money out through me I windows. The money was brought to I the bridge In automobiles and twenty I four policemen were on hand. The strikers were kept In orderly lines and : appeared to be In a good humor. Not ! more than seventy-five of tho men were i present at one time. . i Before the company began paying oft . for the work done during" tho week ended August 26 there was a rumor the men would be asked for their badges and caps and that there might be trouble when they refused to hand them In. However, nothing of an unpleasant na ture developed. Tho strikers got their money and departed as soon as they could. A Harriman national Bank Fifth Avenue and 44th Street New York A Word to the Taxpayer When the average American citizen, or the man in the street, as he is popularly termed, begins to think and to act, instead of merely to complain, of taxes and interest, then, and then only, shall we be on a fair way to relief. If not only through Chambers of Commerce in the larger cities, but at the Town Hall in the smaller communities, or even at the village store, wherever men gather, and women too, our tax burdens were discussed and debated instead of being merely com plained of. we do not doubt that the clear American mind would find the way to lighten them. For such discussion the Harriman National Bank suggests that thedebt of the Allies to the United States, lying an inert mass in the Treasury portfolio, an obligation to us payable on demand, be, through negotiation with the debtors, replaced by an obliga tion payable at a fixed date. Reissued as bonds bear ing an attractive rate of interest, partly by exchange for Liberty Bonds and partly by sale tp new in vestors, some of whom would unquestionably be the foreigner himself, would not the result be less in terest to pay on the United States debt, and con sequently a reduction in substantial measure of our overburden of taxes? This solution of one of our present problems would appear to call for no depth of financial wisdom, but merely for the exercise of the practical common sense that makes for successful mercantile business We are of the firm belief that if it were brought be fore the community, as suggested, it wouldet results BANKING HOURS FROM I O'CLOCK A E DtrusiT VAULTS OPEN FROM fl O'CLOCK P.
