BRYN MAWR, Sept. 24. Two thrills marked tlio opening of tho fourth day at the Bryn Mawr Horso Show, IiUrman Stewart again being the principal actor In the little drama, which for a moment looked to bo a trapedy. Sir. Stewart was riding Sloo Gin, In class 66, a post and rail Jumping class with unusually Interesting entries. Sloo Gin became "Slow Gin" just nt an Inoppor tune moment, and the decided halt In his gait threw Mr. Stewart completely over his head. Tho rider remounted al most Immediately, and neither horse nor rider was the worse for wear. Tho second spill and Incidental thrill followed almost Immediately In the same clnts when a groom riding Transport for Willis Sharpe Kilmer took a header of very much the same description. Trans port's manners, however, were not con sidered au fait, and he wns transported from the ring. Hrllllnnt weather, which has character ized each day since tho opening of tho show, continues. A heavy blanket of dew was overywhero apparent In tho early hours, but the sun coming from behind a mist later In tho morning quickly dried tho damp grass and soggy canvas cover ing the sands. Later the band appeared and soon every person was happy. Regardless of Mr. Stewart's acrobatic attempts to win a blue, tho first prizo went to Howard II, Henry, on Colonel Obannen, a new horse. The second wan token by Templar, nn entry of Louis C. Clark, Jr. St. Winifred, from Glen Riddle Farms, took third. In the second class of hunters and Jump ers Judged, a featureless competition anlde from remarkable riding, tho bluo ras taken by Wlllowkinfr, a former prize winner, from Glen Riddle Farms. Sally Combeo, entered by F. Ambrose Clark, and another blue ribbon horse, took fecond In the contest. Third and fourth honors went to Fallan, of Highland Fnrm, and Wild Irishman, last year's winners of the Radnor Challenge Cup, and entered from William T. Clothier's Valleyhlll T'arm. Mr. Stewart figured in a third spill hardly before ha had brushed the tan baik from his clothing following the other two, He wis riding Benjamin, Now York entiy of Robert .L. Gerry, when the horso refused In front of hedge near the judge's :nnd. The rider went head over heels to the ground. Stewart lashed savagely at the horse's ne'-k with his crop after remountlntr, but could not make Benjamin take a rail f'nee bevond tho hedge of misfortune, lie was obliged to withdraw from the contest. E. B. McLean's Alarm ran away with first honors in tho last class of hunters and jumpers judged before noon. The Virginian, a Glen Riddle entry, came second. W. Plunkett Stewart's polo grounds In a specially constructed ring, and nt a given slgnnl the terriers will proceed to dig. Tho little fellow who shows moat marked ability nt this sort of( work will receive an award. MORE THRILLS EXPECTED TODAY. HorscB In harness, saddle horses, and ponies under saddle ridden by children will feature earlier afternoon competi tions, while, was as tho caeo yesterday, a largo field of prize-winning hunters and Jumpers ridden by daring nnd expert horsemen Is expected to thrill the crowd as a concluding event.

Horses which have been consistent In tnelr actions under different riders, and others which since the opening of the ?how hae taken several blue ribbons, are the subject of considerable speculation.

SECRETARY M'ADOO ACCUSES YORK BANKS OF HOARDING Attack Follows Refusal of City Institutions to Refund Short Term Notes of Ten nessee. WASHINGTON, Sept. 34.

"It is preposterous that ono of the great States of the Union should find it Impossible to procure from the banks such a comparatively small amount of money. "Senator Lea Informed me that he was going to New York last night for tho purpose of joining the commission In its efforts to secure the needed loan. If Senator Lea and his associates are un able to procuro from banks In the city oi new orK, or elsewhere today, and upon reasonable terms, the desired loan, I will myself see If banks cannot be found to take up this loan for the State of Tennessee on the 1st of October, next, upon reasonable terms and at a reasonable rate of Interest."
