New York, Nov. 8 With ten mil lions of gold In her strong-box and a new trans-Atlantic record written in her log, the Cunard turbiner Lusitania steamed paet Sandy Hook ngntsnip ai 1:40 o'olook this morning, in one grana performance the great vessel broke her own world's record and brougnt to tne relief of the money market here" $10, 000,000 in gold in unprecedented time. The west-bound trip was made ap proximately in four days, nineteen hours' and ten minutes. The exact time can only be known from the official reckoning. Her hourly average was a little better than twenty-four knots an hour. The former , western record of the turbiner, completed Oct. 11 last, was 4 days, 19 hours, 52 minutes. The aver age speed on that trip was 24 knots, an hour for the distance of 2,781 miles. The best day's run at that time was 617 knots. Though improving on every run, the Lusitania has probably not yet met the government requirements which will entitle her to financial fa vor. To earn the government sub sidy, the greatest ever appropriated for a steamship, the Lusitania is required to make a round trip at an hourly average of 24 3-4 knots. The steamer has one year within which to develop this speed, and she will fulfill all promises in this line at an early date. The Lusitania fought out the last lap of her' race against time in the teeth of a southwest gale. She had been fa vored with ideal weather until early yesterday, . when she ran into tho off- coast storm that considerably bothered her. When she swept by the lightship this morning she tut her way trough a tumbling sea. The turbiner came to anchor outside the bar, where s'.ie awafted daylight to come through the Ambrose channel, which is not yet ; lighted at night. She Is expected to deck about 9 o'clock this morning. , i The swift Cunarder wrested the title, of "Queen of the seas" from the Ger- ' raans on her last record-breaking trip and is now bending sr energies to 1 earn the subsidy. With a big passen-, ,'cr list and unprecedented gold imports she called from Queenstown at 11:30 a. m., November 3. From the moment she disappeared Tom land, hull down to the westward j -f Daunt's Rock and headed for Sandy IHook, the Lusitania steamod at top ;peed. Her dally runs were 606, 616, ilS and 610 knots up to noon yesterday. Phe best day's run beat her previous ecord for twenty-four hours by one mot. This run of 618 knots was made n tho twenty-four hours preceding i IvVednesrlay noon Fair weather for the i otter part of the trip, and her ma-j hinery shaken down and running , moothly, both contributed. From the lasscngers'1 standpoint the trip was a nost delightful one, and the hourly and a.ily runs were the subjects of animat d speculation. The Lusitania was re ported 305 miles east of Sandv Hook t 11 a. m. yesterday. ' She passed Nan- ucket at 5 o'clock last night. At 9:45 'clock she was in communication with ie wireless station a,t Sagaponack, ong Island, and at 11:30 she was piek- d up from Five Island. This is sev ral miles farther out than vessels are sually made out from Fire Island, and he report gave rise to the belief that ,ie would make Sandy Hook bar earlier han she did. .

NOTHING SAID FOR TEACHERS' INCREASE Professor Seed, of the Civil Service Board, is Op posed to Increase , of Clerk. No rreat public interest was mnni fested In.-t evening in tho opportunity given to the public by the board ot finance to discuss the estimates which have been presented to that body for the runnjng of the city departments next year. Tho main feature of the hearing was the argument which arose over the increase of the pay of Assis tant Town Clerk Cox and the addition of another clerk in that offlcs. l.t torney Harry W. Asher brought the subject up by stating that he had had pome experience with the town clerk's ofTlco and that there had never come under his observation the etate of af; fairs which was charged 'against the office, namely, that time was spent during the city office hours by the clerks in the performance of private work. Mr. Asher favored the increase of the salary of Mr. Cox, which has been asked, Charles S. Scoville, the real estate dealer, took up the other side of the question. He stated that he had made charges through the press against the practices at the town clerk's office and that he was prepared to furnish proofs thereof in a court of law. He said he would favor a temporary clerk in the office, but not another regular ' clerk at $900 a year. He claimed that outside work was done during hours that be longed to the city and that there would be no need of a new clerk 'if tho clerks there now would spend all their time on the city work. Elliott H. Morse of the Connecticut Savings bank defended Mr. Cox, stat ing that he had done considerable work for them, but that it had not been done In city hours. He eaid that if Mr. Cox did any private work In city hours at all the city got back full measure In some other way, The matter was becoming more of a trial of Mr. Cox whan 'the committee called the halt to It and took up theJ (Continued On Fifth Page.)

FIRE THREATENS MALLEI'S STORES v Action of Watchman m Puliing Private Box Probably Averts Conflagration. CROSSED WIRES PROBABLE CAUSE Considerable Excitement At tends Rush of Apparatus to Big-Department House. The biggest fire excitement New ,pa ven has had in a long period of lime was that aroused last evening shortly after S o'clock when the private box of t;?e Malley department stores was rullec! for a fire In the big store.

HOLD ON TO GOLD England anil Other European Coun tries Raise Rates. New York, Nov. 7. The contest of yie European money markets to retain their gold resources was indicated by the ' simultaneous action to-day of three of the large central banks of Europe and a call for a meeting to morrow of the governing board of a fourth.

LEGISLATED 0 f OF THESERYIC1 Brigade Staff Claims Whole Connecticut National Guard Goes Out X . With Staff. BIG FIGHT PROMISED BEFORE COMMITTEE General Frost Engages Senator Stiles Hudson to Represent His Staff at the Hearing. Whether or not the National Guar of the State of Connecticut was in ef fect legislated out of existence by tha acts of the general Assembly of 1905, which in Chapter 227 repealed Seotions 3006, 3007 3003, and 3009 of .the General Statutes, is to be the question argued before Attorney General Marcus Hoi' comb at the Capitol in HartfoPd on Monday, Nov. 18. 'Chapter .. 227 of, the. Acts of 1905 in its next to last para graph repeals the sections referred to. These sections are: Section 30O6 Bri gade' and Brigade Officers; 3007 Regl mentai officers; 3008 Company , and other . organizations; 3009 Battery .ot , Artillerv, The report of th special board of of- -fleers on reorganization of the Nation- al Guard in its report says in reference to organizing the state forces under; the Dick laws: "To carry1 out this pur- . pose, in 1905 the general assembly re-, pealed section 3006 6f our militia law which contained the only provision then existing for organization of our- Na tional Guard into a brigade, under tho command of a brigadier general ap pointed by the commander in chtef with the consent of the senate."
