Wilson Mhrier, actor and playwright,
who was the sole person to state he was
In the laeo at iHo ilme of tho raid. Is
expected to offer the chief diversion. Mr.
MUner Is well known as a Wit. having
hivented n line to the effect that life la
a tough proposition, especially the first
100 years of. Jt, -arid has upset Attorney
Vandewater considerably because of the
uncertainty' of his having had anything
to .do with thb Interior of tho resort
" Mr, .Vandewater- said when he gained
entrance to the resort the first One he
held Up- with his revolver was Mlxner.
The playwright told him to take every
thing, In the place, Mr. Vandewater said,
and offered tho Information that he was
In tull charge. Owing to Mlsrler's ex
cessive laughter during' this confession
the '.attorney thinks he' was only Indulg
ing his humor. Mlxner featured In the
Partridge Club Investigations In March.
1018. His arrest was Ordered by Dis
trict. Attorney Weeks' late yesterday af
ternoon. t ,
Some ioubt also exists as to tho true
Status of 'tho resort. Mr. Vandewater,
onbelialf of the Nassau-County Associa
tion Insists, that he positively knew of
one man who dropped $90,000 there In a
night and that the nightly profits of the
house have run to -J 60,000.
Ileal "Class", Absent.
H'Some of. the residents near the resort
got Into print yesterday long- enough to
remark" that they thought it waaa pop
ular place for Broadway1 skylarkers, hut
tbey ' had never seen any real class,
meaning- Nassau's elite, hanging about.
When this was relayed to Mr. Vande
water he team's out promptly with a
statement .that there were fourteen very
well dressed persons In the house at the
time of the -raid, Including some be
jewelled women. t
There Is also a great deal of appre
hension on the part of District At
torney Weeks, who has been mollified In
spite of the raid being made over his
head, that? npncof the three men sub
poenaed will shpw, up. He was very
glad to receive Mr. Vandewater's ovpr

pecially since he had been' Intending so

It. was rather a moot question whether
12.000 ball would hold three, such val

He and Mr. Vandewater had a long

his talk with District Attorney Week
that the, Nasrau County Association Is
purely a civic organization and Is not
strictly In the business of conducting

Dr. Bobcrt J. Wilson to Bo
in Chargo at City
Dr. Royal 8. Copeland, Health Com
missioner! began yesterday In real
earnest to formulate .plans to .take over
for the treatment of drug addicts the
abandoned hospital buildings formerly
used In connection with the work of tho
naval training station at Pelham Bay
Park. He announced that experts In
his department aro working out the
details of the project and said that he
expects that arrangements will probably
have been made .within two weeks to
take care of the first big batch of
Dr. Robert J. Wilson, director of the
Bureau of Hospitals In tho Health De
partment, he said, will be In. charge of
the drug sanitarium at Pelham Bay,
Dr. Wilson Is to make all arrangements
for the care of the medical cases and
will be responsible for the administra
tion of the hospitals. I
This new undertaking by the city will
have to be covered by an appropriation
from the Board of Estimate. Commis
sioner Copeland Is preparing to go be
fore tho board .at a special meeting
which he understands will be called In
the near future to get the necessary
funds. Dr. Wilson, he said. Is at work
on an estimate which vMU be used as
a basis for the recommendations to be
made to the Board' of Estimate.
The commissioner is of tho opinion
that the amount that will be required to
operato tho Pelham Bay hospitals up to
January 1, 1920, will be in the neighbor
hood of 90,000. This amount, he .said,
will bo somewhat offset by the saving
realized when the drug addicts now at
Riverside, on North Brother Island, art
moved to Pelham Bay and the Worth
street clinic Is abolished. Dr. Wilson's
report Is expected to be ready to-day.
By his tour of Inspection of the Pel
ham Bay plant late Monday afternoon.
Dr. Copeland confirmed his belief that it
can easily be made available as to take
care ot all addicts, and he proposes to
centralize all of the work of handling
the drug addicts there Just as soon as
possession has been taken by his depart
ment of tho buildings turned over for
uso by the navy.
"As soon as the Pelham Bay hospital
Is opened," said Dr. Copeland yesterday,
"every patient at our hospitals and the
patient of every physician who desires
to De cureu may De sent mere, w e win
have ample facilities. There are about
two-dozen hospital buildings, which have
normal acommodatlons for 900 patients.
but .which have had as many an 2,000
patients at one time. There Is room for
eighty nurses. We can hire, that many
if necessary, but I. .doubt If that many
will be needed."
Asked whether the Worth street clinic's
work will be continued pfter the Pelham
uay nospitais are in operation. Dr. Cone-
land saldj "My Judgment Is that the
clinic on Worth street will be through
with. Its work In. from two to three
months. This place was opened to meet
the emergency ot caring for the addicts
who were unable to get their prescrip
tions from the private practitioners, ar
rested under tho. Harrison law by the
Federal authorities. These patients
either will bo off the drug ,ln three
months or else .they will ,le at the, hos
pital. The function of tho emergency
clinic will then have ceased."
Reports from several hospitals rela
tive to the cases of addicts who.had been
sent from the clinic to be cured, nearly
all of them giving assurances ot speedy
curesr failed to Impress Dr. Copeland.
"I am not satisneu with tne methods
In vogue In this city at present tor cur
ing drug addicts,", he said In referring to
this matter. "It tins' been customary for
hospitals to give what the addicts call
the 'cold turkey treatment,' which means
that the patient Is taken off the drug at
once. Two or three days later the u.a
dlct Is declared .to have been cured.
"I have a report from one hospital at
which seven patients are said to have
b;en 'cured1 In two days, and another
from one where eleven nro reported as
'cured' In two days. I feel confident
that this practice will be met and cor
rected through the opening ot the new
hospital, where Individual treatment will
.be. given to each addict."
MamaroneclC Doctor Holla Down
Stairs In Struittcle.
Mrs. F. S. Hanford, who lives next
door to tho Methodist parsoriage at
Mamaroneck, saw- a strange young man,
wearing a soldier's shirt, enter the house
yesterday afternoon. She knew that the
pastor, the Rev. I. S. Marsland, was
away on his vacation, so she notified
his son, Dr. Irving Marsland, who lives a
short distance away.
Dr. Marsland hurried over and on the
third floor he found the Intruder, who
leaped over the banisters upon him. The
two clinched 'and the doctor landed his
right on the thief's abdomen. The
couple rolled down the stairs, fighting
desperately. Dr. Marsland's bead struck
tho floor at the bottom of the stairs so
hard he was stunned. Before he could
recover tho Intruder escaped. He hod
collected many valuables and had tied
them In a tablecloth, which was left in
the' centre ot the dining room table.

Editor Older Soys Wilson Was
nnck of Investigation,
Ban Francisco. July 29, Prepara
tion ot the Densmore report on the
Mooney case was under way for several
months before It came .to his attention.
Fremont Older, editor ot the Call, said
hero to-day In answering a chargo of
Representative Blanton that the report
was a "frame-up" In which Mr. Older
had participated.
'Tllanton's assertions bear the record
of absurdity on their face," Mr. Older
said to-day, "Any one at all familiar
with the Mooney case and tho Densmore
investigation knows that the Densmore
Investigation was undertaken by Dens
more and Government agents working
under him with the full authority and
sanction of Secretary of Labor Wilson
and the Department of Justice. Presi
dent Wilson himself authorized the labor
secretary's activity.
"The dictaphone investigation that re
vealed "the mass of Corruption In the Dis
trict Attorneys office and the miscarriage
of Justice In the Mooney trial was under
way for many months before I was made
aware of it. It was brought to the Coll
just before the Investigation ended be
cause this paper had stood conspicuously
for the integrity of the courts during the
whole prosecution, and I was the first to
reveal the Oxman perjury."

"We must beat Wilson and the Demo

Winnipeo, July 28. The closing of
fall future trading on the Winnipeg
grain exchange at noon to-day by order
of the Government after being open
only a week, has' caused consternation
In grain circles and Indicates Govern
ment .control of western Canada's grain
crop for this year.
There Is no likelihood ' that the Gov
ernment 'will fix prices of wheat like In
the United States. This new move Will
cause heavy loss to many grain firms
which had made extensive preparations'
to keep up trading. It will seriously af
fect tha flour trade, although lack ot
tonnage Is the chief .cause of the poor
flour export trade.
Sterling exchange has 'dropped to
$4.60 the pound at banks, but It will be
stabilised at $4.69, bankers assert They
say that before long Britain probably

her 'debt to Canada. That'Trlll -greatly
help exchange here.

wheat to export, mostly from Manitoba,
in proportion to the area .seeded.

wan and Alberta, but the change has
come too ' late to do good to wheat.
About six -or eight .bushels -to tho acre
will bo reaped In theso two provinces on
