Ignore Downpour While Air
men's, Soldiers' and Cops'
Feats Thrill Them.
Parachute Jump From Speed
ing Airplane Makes Crowd
Hold Its Breath.
It was to ba expert! that no New
York cop would mind the weather. It
ecmed almost too much to expect that
40,000 of the copa' friends wouldn't
mind tt. .But such iu the case yes
terday. For 40.000 trundled one way or
another to the 8heepshead Bay Speed
way and rat there for three hours, rlfht
out In the middle of what moat of them
agreed was the wettest day In history
and not a thing In the whole lot to help
a man with wet feet, not a drop of It
anywhere In sight. If Doc Copeland haa
a new epidemic of flu on his hands he
can blame It on 2.75.
Aside from the weather and the
Mayor's going to write a letter to Jupl
ter Pluvius about that the games were
completely successful. For a few min
utes It rained airplanes on the field as
the squadrons from Hmzlehurst Field
dropped over. The mounted cops, ths
cops afoot, the motorcyclists, the sprin
ters and the hurdlers, the gymnasts from
the training school and soldiers and
blrdmen gava the crowd thrill after
thrill. Even tha treacly rain and mist
couldn t dampen the enthusiastic ap
proval of the stunts.
Rain Harts Karly.
But It rained persistently and Insinu
atingly, almost steadily, from the time of
about the third event on the programme.
Tha crowd sought shelter beneath tha
upper tier of the grand stand and be
neath the stand Itself, but found the
shelter a snare and a delusion. The only
differences between standing out In tha
open and under the grand stand were
that In the open the drops were small
and many and came fresh from the skies,
while under the so-called shelter they
cam large and many and flavored with
peanut hulls, tulle hats and shoe polish.
It was a tough day on tulle hats and
shoe polish, not to mention white skirts
and stockings. Tha Mayor seemed to
have an advance tip on the weather, for
he wore his second best, suit and laid
aide the conventional stovepipe for a
laat year's straw hat. The Mayor got In
his work for the day, however, away
from the rain. For the first time In
many moons he made a speech without a
manuscript, at the luncheon In the Wal
dorf which preceded the games. He al
lowed that Commissioner Dickie Enrlght
the Mayor didn't call him Dickie was
the best Police Commissioner New York
ever had. The statement was applauded
Uproariously by the 400 men ami women
guests. A keen observer of affairs who
was present ventured to guess, neverthe
less, that many of the applauders were
Mr. Enrlght's own hired hands.
The luncheon, a delightful one with
no other speeches, was the mystery af
fair of the day. The host's name was
kept scrupulously secret There strolled
about the room at various times, how
ever, various of the millionaire deputies
In the Police Commissioner's offlc cnti
suspicion pointed strongly at several of
them. Not the least suspect was Col.
Jefferson De Mont Thompson, resplendent
In a blue uniform and black Sam Browne
belt of the aviation police reserve
At the games t'.ie honors of the day
were shared between the coplets fron
the training school and the aviator'.
The fledgling bulls marched out on to
the track In what the writers call a ser
ried phalanx. Then they lined up, stacked
rms. swlpped off their blouses to reveal
some 300 pairs of stout shoulders in
ath-a-letlc underwear, and went through
a gymaatlc drill that had the crowd on
Its feet cheering most of the time. The
300 moved as one and they did things
with their lithe young bodies that would
make an old man with rheumatism
-lumps From sucrclluK Plane.
The aviators, despite the bad weather,
rulled everything in their repertoire.
Their stunts culminated when I.leut.
Downs leaped from an airplane piloted
by Lieut. Mltchel 2,000 feet In the air.
For three sickening seconds his body
turned over and over, legs and arms
sprawling. Then a white silk parachute
flashed magically open above him and he
drifted to the track while the crowd
cheered. The plane had climbed In wide
circles to the proper altitude with Lieut
Downs sitting Jauntily on the outer edge
of one of the wings, letting his feet
dangle in space. Another plane pursued
It and a movie man cranked busily,
catching the daring Jumper at the mo
ment of his leap, when his parachute
opened, and following him until he had
landed safely on the edge of the far
hanked turn of the speedway.
Deputy Police Commissioner Wallls,
who presided at the luncheon In the
Waldorf, announced that there would be
no speeches. But he Introduced to the
audience each of the distinguished group
at the guest table In a fashion that
would have done credit to Joe b'Oee
Humphries. There wsb the Mayor, of
course : Commlssoner Enrlght, who got
another cheer ; Brig -Cen. Mitchell, In
chSTge of the aviation fields; Bear Ad
miral (Jleaves. Resr Admiral Osterhaus,
Mrs. Mitchell. B. A. C Smith, Ellen A
O'Orady. Deputy Commlaaloner ; Mi
chael Drelcer, ften. McManus, Gen.
Barry. Col. Thompson a'nd Stcretary of
State Francis M. Hugo.
At snother table on the floor sat Mrs.
Hylan and Miss Virginia Hylan. Mrs
W. R. Hearst, Miss Coiwon. Miss Julia
Arthur and Mrs. E. A. Orr, the wife and
model of the artist who drew the poster
Which has featured the announcements
of the field day.
Not the least thrilling of the day s
vents was the ride from 1 1 Waldorf
to Mieepshead Bay of the Mayor, fol
lowed by sixty motor nr bearing the
other guests. Fifth avenue, Lafayette
street the Manhattan Bridge. Flatbush
avsnus and th Prkway were cleared
of most other traffic and the sixty cars.
II bi and powerful, raced in a perfect
covey all the way. They mads the trip
In something under twenty-four min
utes, dsshlng side by side, heading one
another off. Jumping from one side of
the street to the othr and generally
behaving under the hands of the drivers
of ths pollcs reserve transportation bu
reau like a flock of twelve cylinder
The Msyor was almost on time at the
Held. When he came In a big cordon of
cops was drawn up to greet him, and
he and his guests circled tha two miles
of the speed saucer and entered their re
served sections amid cheers. As soon ss
he was seated ths first events begsn. A
couple of heats of the 140 yard dash, an
eight mile motorcycle race and single
tick battle between platoons of mounted
men had been pulled off when the rain
came. Out of the lowering sky it burst
like shrspnel. The vast crowd In the
grand stand rose as one snd sought what
they thought would be shelter. Out In
the field stand", where the People's Lib
erty Chorus snd a half dozen bands sat
on a w ooden Wsna in a s. a or mud,
there was consternation
From ths field raced women In thin
wlilte gowns and wilted millinery and
soon there wag chorus) In the grand
stand. They sang cheerful things to
keep the courage up lacking any bet
ter mesne' uid kept at It until In lull
between shower the hum of airplane
motors was heard nnd a score of chaseo
pianea from Haslehurst came fluttering
over the field in battle formation. With
them loomed the huge Handley Page
bomber, only a few Inches smaller thin
ths navy's transocean reaplanea. One
by one they settled gracefully onto the
Infield and were backed Into line. Out
o,' the Handley Page stepped Command
er John H. Towers and Lleutenant
Ccmmandcr P. N. L. Bellinger of the
NC fleet.
A procession of officials snd aviators
was formed. Rnd headed bv the poHce
band they were conducted across the i
track and up In front of Mayor Hylan s
box. There Commissioner Enrlght took
the floor and told them In a few simple,
well chosen words how great they were.
He compared them with a man named
Columbus, which seemed to Interest the
two aviators greatly. No doubt It was
the novelty of the Commissioner's
simile. He pulled another one about
their looking like Cyrus W. Field, and
Mr Ballinger was observed to stroke his
chin. They sat peaceably In the boxes
of ths great throughout the rest of the
sflernoon. however.
Because of the weather nd the slip
pery condition of the board track the
programme had to be curtailed. So too
the music. The opern st irs who had
ptomlsed to slag wisely conserved their
voices for another day. Ralph de Palma,
who was on hand with a new Packard
rsdy to attack the ten mile record, also
was obliged to forego his try. In the
air. however, and on the gnsn infleld
tho fun went on continuously. The
young aviators slipped up and down,
Just missing the grand stand and Dep
uty Commissioner Wallls's straw hat,
and the mounted men of the depnrtment
put through several thrilling drills In
close formation.
There was a hectic shoe raco, races
for the old timers In the department,
hurdle, weight and Jumping events In
which Jack Eller, Babe McDonald and
ether Olympic stars of the department
had more or less an easy time of It
despite handicaps. Throuugh the cour
tesy of Charles B. Dillingham a big
troupe of Hippodrome clowns was on
hand, and with some of the amateurs of
the Police Department put on a bur
lesque drill In front of the Mayor's box.
A big sausage balloon hovered over
the field most of the afternoon, but the
weather was too doubtful for the at
tacks which Wis aviators were scheduled
to make upon It, and this, with other air
thrills, were put off untd to-day. It was
announced that the uncompleted athletic
events will be run off this afternoon and
that the aviators, who left their ma
chines on the Held last night, will con
tribute the rest of the programme which
Col. Archie Miller had mapped out for
them and which they were unable to
complete vesterdav.
The Mayor remained right to the end
of the party, despite the wet. and saw It
wind up with a sham battle between
soldiers and members of the police re
serves against b tribe of authentic look
ing Filipinos. The gallant police soldiers
showed they were true to the colors by
failing to fall for the hula dances of the
Philippine ladles In grass skirts, and
by sloshing their husbands, brothers,
sweethearts and children In arms with
ilrle and machine un Are. one pounders,
trench mortars and finally with mines,
which blew up the realistic grass huts.
The Tilplnos dldn t mind, however, for
they paraded with a snake dance before
the Mayor after It was over, following
In the footsteps of the field music of
a Spanish War veterans' post, also In
Altogether the police put on a show
that was more thrilling than any three
ring circus. It was better even than
the circus posters or the advance no
tices that Lieutenant-Commander Welles
Hawkes used to write. It waa a good,
show, and, as Deputy Commissioner Au
gustine Drum Porter remarked.
"If the weather will only give us an
even break next week we'll knock them
off their seats."
Expert 100,000 Governor's Day.
Next Saturday, which will bo Gov
ernor's Day, the police expect a crowd
of 100,000. One of ihe attractions tlu y
will see will be an aerial army wedding.
All arrangements have been completed
for the marriage of Lieut. George Bur
gess of the Air Service and Miss E. K.
ShaefTer of Brooklyn. The couple will

nesses in another, and the words of the
ceremony will he transmitted from one

TnmKTOM. July H. The entire elec
tion machinery of New Jersey will have
to be reset under I decision reached by
Gov. Runyon that a law passed last
winter compels the sppolntment cf hon
orably discharged soldiers, sailors or
msrlnes to upward of 8,000 positions as
members of county and district election
The Governor's determination to en
force the provisions of the so-called vet
erans' preferment act means a shake
up full or unforeseen possibilities at the
coming election.
The amendment to the veterans' act,
which thus far has been practically
Ignored, was Introduced In the House
by Speaker Plerson and was designed to
efford an opportunity to returning sol
diers to obtain employment In public
positions, whether In the State, county
or municipal service, whenever quail
fled veterans could be found for tho po
sitions. Gov. Runyon took the Initiative in
his campaign In behalf of honorably
discharged veterans to-day by sending
letters lo all tho Justices of the Bu-r-eme
Court and Common Pleas
Judges throughout the State calling at-
entlon to the provisions of the law and
expressing the belief that the forty
two members of county election boards
to be appointed this year should be se
lected from tho ranks of honorably dis
charged soldiers.
Must Be i crtHiul.
The present election law requires that
members of county boards shall he cer
tified by the County Judge and the Jus
tice of t'.ie Supreme Court for the circuit
In which the county is situated not later
than July 20. It is aomew-nat remark
hlc that In making the certification un
der the new law the Supreme Court Jus-
tlces and Judges have apparently en
i tlrely overlooked the provisions of the
I veteran's preferment act. and this despite
' the well known maxim of the courts that
"ignomnce of the law Is no excuse."
It Is of course possible that the Judces
' cf New Jersey have not overlooked the
law at all. hut that they have ,-laced
I upon It a construction different to that
of Gov. Runyon. whose views are fortl
I fled by the Attorney-General's office. Re
i fusal on the part of the courts to accept
the Governor's views might lead to s
clash between the executive and Judlela'
, branches of the Government, but In sue'
an event the Governor la apparently
' master of the situation, for In tho event
of failure to' certify ths names of quali
fied election officers on or before July to
ths power of appoint me n t rests With
Oov. Runyon has no expectation of
any such' eventuality. On the contrary
hs believes the courts will willingly Join
In his efforts to plsre veterans in control
of the election machinery.
fpon the county election boards, when
appointed, will devolve the duty of se
lecting 8,008 members of district election
boards who will msn the polls at 3.002
election districts In the State. Tho county
boards will have until .August 20 to cer
tify to the sheriffs of their counties the
names of sppolntccs to district boards.
Acvr LaW la Specific.
Ths law of last winter Is specific In
declsrlng that physical infllrmitlcs. such
as the loss of limbs. shll not be dis
qualifying features provided the men are
In fact capable of performing the duties
of the positions. j

election officers Is of particular Interest
at this time because of demands recently
made by patriotic organisations for a
speclsl session of the Legislature to
strengthen the veteran's prefermen act
so as to compel observance by State and
municipal authorities.
Many election officers throughout the
State have terved In their present po
sitions year after year and in not a few
instances, particularly In the larger
counties, election boards have boon cred
ited with bringing about results not en
t rely In harmony vgJth the popular vote
The shaknup Bromlaed by the appoint
ment of soldiers In place of the old time
politicians my cuse consternation In
some districts where sharp practices on
the part of election officers hnve been
rt sorted to for years.
The effect of the new law as viewed
hy Oov. Runyon is to repeal by Implica
tion the Richards act of last year, giving
authority for the appointment of school
teachers aa election officers. This fea
ture of the Richards act was put In
operation In comparatively few districts,
although where It was tried tho BUbatl
tutlon of women for men as election
officers proved generally satisfactory.

Montreal, July 18. The readjust
ment activity is very marked In ths ln
creased tourist travel In Canada thtg
summer. it Is about double what It
was In any war year, and Mds fair to
outstrip all records of pre war years.
The warm weather Ml In early. ncj,
June started many moving w ifo would
wait for July In ordinary summers. Ths
reports are unanimous In telling of tl
business In both American and Cana-'
dlan patronage
One interesting feature is tha In
creased number of parties going "baek
to nature." These parties are made up
chiefly of officers and men who had sg
perlence In camp life and long for
return to the free life that tones UP
the tired body and bestows freedom from
care and hank worries. The Grand
Trunk and Canadian Pacific- Railway
both have taken charge of B number of
such parties. There is difficulty In se
curing sufficient good guides and IB
jirovlding canoes and men to paddle ths
"freight and passengers" to their desti
nation sway from civilization. This
form of outing Is sure to grow In pop
ularity. In tha opinion of tourist
The Canada Steamships, which oper
ates lines of steamers between Montreal
and Toronto. Kingston. Rochester and
Hamilton, and between Montreal. Que
bec and the famous Sagnenay River
trip points Is doing a capacity business
east and west A large number of
Americans may be seen on these trips,
especially east of Montreal.
The Canadian Pacific Railway lake
steamships are already doing almost
capacity business, nnd there are still two
months to run. The Northern Naviga
tion Company, which U oorrated In con
nection with the Canada Steamships. Is
having a like egperlence,
Transcontinental traffic on tne rail
ways Is exceptional. The Canadian
j Pacific Railway trans-Canada train Is
i usually hooked away ahead, amply Jus
i tlfying the enterprise of the company.
A fine line of advertising In American
j dally newspapers was put on last spring
by the Canadian Pacific Railway, and
tho results prove that It was well placed.
, Capacity Is the only restriction on travel
tills year for tho people who have ths
i money, and they are legion.
Hotels ore doing a record business.

j Hon. Ottawa is working In an organised
; way to care for the 2.000 delegates that
are expected to be present at the na
1 tlonal Liberal convention next month.
Canadians spend a lot of their good
j money In 'alifornia. Florida and other
I parts of the Vnlted States in the winter
sensor. More enterprise like that of the
I Canadian Pacific Railway would result
in a return of American tourist money
spent in this country In the summer
season. For Canada Is a delightful
land to summer In, though there ars
reasons for feeling it Is a fine country
any time of the year.
