To this end Curtis R. Burnett, presi dent of the Newark Board of Trade, and James «M. Reilly, secretary, today held a conference with Edward H. Alien, of Chicago. Plans for the indus trial exposition to be held In this city next year were discussed. Mr. Allen, the general manager of the Interna tional Municipal Congress Exposition, held In Chicago September 18-30, is un expert In this work. Borden D. Whiting will tile an appli cation with the secretary oi state for the incorporation of a Newark exposi tion company. This concern will he operated under the auspices of the Board of Trade. The officers will be Curtis R. Burnett, president; Philip J. Bowers, treasurer; James M. Reilly, director. The foregoing officers, with George W. Jagle and John L. O'Toole, will form the executive committee. The organisation of the following commit tees are being arranged for: Promotion, finance, educational and publicity com mittees. This will be followed in 1916 by the groat exposition In honor of Newark's two hundred and fiftieth anniversary. As shown by the consensus of opinion of many prominent business men and eapitalists, the 1816 exhibition will be in every respect a fitting celebration of the titanic success which Newark has gained in the Industrial world. It will be an industrial exhibition given bj; the City of Industry. It will probably bt held in May, the month when the first little ships, manned by Puritan crews and carrying Puritan settlers, sailed up the Passaic and anchored off what w-as then a wil derness, but which is now the City In dustrial. From a few small houses, scattered in the clearing, Newark has .grown to be a mighty force in the industrial world. For her manufactures she stands pre eminent. "No other city can compare with her in industrial progress and achieve ment,” aaid David Grotta, president of the City Planning Commission. . “It is wrong—it is a crime,” asserted Frederick Keer. another commissioner, A'that the manufacturers and capital ists have done nothing to advertise Newark. Widespread advi Using throughout the country we must l:ave. An exhibition is the way to attain that publicity. And it must come, and come quickly.” ' The first great Newark exhibition was held in 1373 in a building erected for the purpose, tile old Machinery Hall, but after a third exhibition in 1375 the project was abandoned. ■Since that lime civic pride has been apparently helpless to stir Newarkers to an\ extended scheme of industrial advertising. Now, however, the time is admittedly ripe for such an indus trial exhibition as has never been equaled in the cities of Hie country. In 1916 Newark will be an even greater city of industry than now. Gigantic undertakings are being pressed to a conclusion on every side Skyscrapers are springing up. A score or more will be erected In the very heart of the city before the anniversary celebration, five years hence. Broad and Market streets will be metamor phosed. The reclamation of the meadows will make hundreds of factory sites avail able. The ship canal, even if not tin (Continued on Page 10. Column 2.) i - « _ _ Beat Service to California.

"Request Mrs. Hadley to return,” said the judge. Two officers brought the irate woman , back. "I'll fine you $10 for contempt ot court," was the judge’s remark The woman's ire had been arouse i when, upon making a complaint about her husband, Acting Judge Yulll aske l her if she was a drinking woman. She ' admitted that she was, but made the retort courteous when she departed. 3 GIRLS HELD ACCUSED | OF THEFT AND RECEIVING One girl is being held al police head quarters and two others in the House I of Detention, pending an investiga-' tion .of charges of entering, stealing! and receiving. The girls are Mamie ] Pasikas, 18 years old, of 110 Bank street; Annie Pasikas. 15 years old, of 38 Jackson street, and Isabelle 1 Kubilitz, of 294 Chestnut street, 16 years old.

The complaint was sworn out by Mrs. Mary Dethloff, of 459 Washington street, who said Annie Pasikas has worked for her as a chambermaid until yesterday, when she and the two others disappeared with a quantity of Jewelry and wear ing apparel valued at $70. MOTHER, CAUGHT IN FIRE, DROPS BABE TO STREET * _ HOBOKEN, Oct. 27.—Fire in the stable at 218 Court street spread so rapidly last evening that John Klen ney, the stableman, whs unable to get upstairs to his wife and 2-year-olrl son on the third floor. His wife stood at her window screaming, with the child In her arms. Constable Solferlno and a neighbor who rushed for a blanket to serve as a drop net for the child shouted to the frantic mother to hold the baby till they were ready. In heir fright she| let the baby drop and he fell at the j constable’s feet. His skull was frac tured and at St. Mary's Hospital It I was feared he would die. A moment later the firemen arrived ! and rescued the mother. She had to I be_ taken to the hospital. TAILOR'S STORE BURGLARIZED. Joseph Ball -, a tailor, of B26 Broad ! street, told the police today that some - ' ono entered his store last night through i ! a rear door and made off with clothing j | valued at $208. : (-'--% II I1 I ' K i f j! i i J LI j i ( > < > i > i > ( ) ^ ^ __\ , ■ DEATH FOllOWS RIGHT OF AGONY OVER HIS ARREST Nicholas Titus, Flour Salesman, Dies at Police Head quarters. WAS IN CUSTODY UPON EMBEZZLEMENT CHARGE Fell Unconscious as Breakfast Was Being Brought to • ‘Witness Room. .. -| As breakfast was being taken to him at police headquarters today Nicholas O. Titus, who had been arrested for embezzlement not many hours ofore, pitched forward and died in convulsions* on the floor. While ho will go down on the books as the victim of organic trouble, his sudden and tragic death . o soon after he had been taken to police head quarters is thought to have been directly caused by the ignominy of his arrest and the night of mental anguish he spent in a damp, unhealthy wit ness-room in the basement of the City Hall. At 1 o'clock this morning, after a long search for a Judge, who could ac cept bail, Titus, vho is a salesman and lives at 225 Sixth Avenue, was put in a witness room at headquarters, ‘instead of a regular cell. A little after 7 o’clock he asked Door man Baldwin for his breakfast. "I’ll have it here In a quarter .of an hour,” Baldwin ; romised. When he returned to the prisoner at ten minutes to 8, Titus was standing in the middle of the room with a strange look on his face. "What’s wrong?” demanded Baldwin. As he spoke, Titus fell forward on ; his bed! Desk Sergeant Ebert was j summoned. Efforts were made to re vive the man. When the City Hospital ambulance arrived a few minutes after 8. Titus was deaf’. County Physician McKenzie said death was due to kidney trouble. The man’s death, he /ever, has re vealed the fact that the witness rooms at police headquarters have again and again aroused the protests of the detectives. Three weeks ago all the detectives at heaquarters signed a petition addressed to the Board of Police, j.3$*nmissioners, and asking that none of the detectives should he called upon to sleep in the witness rooms. These rooirtF where two detectives on reserve tiro forced to sleep every night, so they alleged, are damp and dangerous, below the level of the ground and so designed that they can not be kept at an even temperature. Through the room in which Titus passed the night run i number of feed steamplpes, which superheat the air of the room, making it. necessary to keep tlie window open, thus creat ing a continr 1 draught.

SHANGHAI, Oct. 27.—General LI Yuen Hung proclaimed himself pro visional president of the new republic of China at Hankow today. Notifica tion has been duly received by the foreign consuls, who are assured that the provisional government will do all in its power to protect foreign Inter ests during the present period of wide spread unrest. There is as yet no news when the ad vance against Peking will begin, but the prediction made here 'Is that Gen eral Li will proceed slowly, taking town after town, as he has done in the past, until the capital is in the spread of the revolutionary movement. AMNESIA VICTIM RECALLS HIS CITY. In a few days the identification of the man who does not know himself is expected by Dr. Aaron * Parsonnet, house physician at Beth Israel Hos pital, for the amnesia victim today satisfied the doctor that he came from Philadelphia. The victim is a Hebrew. 38 years old, tailor by trade, who . walked into the hospital on Wednes day, declaring ho had forgotten his, name, address or anything which would lead to his identification. The victim Is eviently a learned Hebrew, and quotes from the Hebrew scholars, but does not recall their names Today he recalled that Rabbi Leventhal, of Philadelphia, is one of his friends, and he has written to him, stating facts by which the rabbi would recognize him, and signing himself “the man without a name." The hospital authorities are working on the several clues the victim has given them, and expeet his identification in a few days. BOY RUN OVER BY WAGON. His foot, black with gangrene, little . S-year-old Joseph Derbota, of 37 Stone , street, faces the amputation of that member in ihe City Hospital today. Last Tuesday, while playing in front of his house, a wagon ran over his foot. | Dr. Mancusi-Ungaro treated the boy,! i hut the foot began to show signs of ■ j gangrene, and the boy was rushed to i he hospital today. Is Girl Whose Fiance Faces Trial on Poison Charge Fiancee’s Fortune, Instead of Her Father’s, Defending Pastor Accused of Murder BOSTON, Oct. 27.—It became known here today that It is the private fortune ' iolet Edmunds, instead of father, which is deb nding Rev. Clarence V. 'I'. Richeson agatnst tile charge of having murdered by poison Avis Linnet!, the Hyunnis music student. It also was learned that whereas Moses <1. Edmunds, the millionaire father of Violet, has heretofore believed in tile innocence of Richeson, he is now wavering in that belief. Miss Edmands and her mother are still firm In believing he pastor in nocent, and th • money which Is being furnished his lawyers with which to build up a case that will set him again it liberty Is really being furnished by Miss Edmands herself instead of her father, for it is to be deducted, it Is said, from the $500,000 inheritance which she is to receive. The t illion tire, It is said, is advancing whatever funds are needed only on behalf of j his wife and daughter. A telling piece of evidence was un earthed today when it was learned that two days before the deatn of Avis ! Linnell Kicheson obtained a small quantity of flour and water from Mrs. F. H. Carter, with whom he boarded in Cambridge, saying he wanted It to make paste to repair the bindings on1 some books. When he returned the bowl fn which i he had mixed the past-* he told Mrs. : Carter to wash it thoroughly as there had been poison in it. Mrs. Carter made this important dis closure today, and it is certain she re- ; peated the information in her testi- j iriony before the special grand Jury. Dramatic interest in the grand Jury j proceedings, which will probably last! two more days, centres about Miss) Edmands, who will appear as a wit ness tomorrow. Jury Sees MacFarland in Cell at County Jail; May Indict Miss Bromley Another peculiar twist was given to the mystery surrounding the MacFar - land poison case when the members of the present grand jury, who indicted Allison MacFnrland for the murder of his wife, visited him at the county jail while making their Inspection of county Institutions. What the purpose of the grand jury was in this is not known. It may be possible that an indictment of some sort, possibly on a charge of accessory before the fact, may be handed up late today or tomorrow, the last day of the grand jury’s term, against Miss Flor ence Bromley, th- young and pretty blonde, stenographer who was Mrs. j MacFar land’s rival. If this is not done it is believed that • Prosecutor, Mott will at«k the next [ ?rand Jury to indict her, as a prelim- \ nary to extradition proceedings. The second September grand jury j •onvenes n£xt Tuesday. The gravity of this charge, however, nay prevent the grand Jury from landing up an indictment, since the evidence which can be presented to hem is said to be contained mainly in the letters written by Miss Bromley to! MacFarland. Even If some Indictment Is brought! By the grand Jury against the woman In i the case, the extradition proceedings based thereon will be contested at Bvery step by Miss "Bunny" Bromley's Philadelphia attorneys and by Frnnk M. McDermlt, oounsel for the prisoner. Dr. Walter S. Washington, the alien ist, who will be permitted to see Mao Farland in the presence of Mr Mo Dermit, is going to the Jail today. The prisoner’s counsel Insists that this visit1, has nothing to do with the Insanity de- ' fense it was rumored he had planned. He scouts the Idea that the defense cannot meet the prosecutor on his own ground and secure an acquittal. Robert, the 6-year-old son of Mac Farland, gave the detectives several Important clues In their effort to se cure evidence of a murder. He' was with his father in the trip to New York made the day Mrs. MacFarland took the fatal draught of cyanide of potassium, and he went with MacFnr land to Philadelphia on the day the ' body was found. If an attempt Is made to put the lit tle fellow on the stand Mr. McDermlt will make a strenuous protest.

Upon his arrival at the offices of the United States Steel Corporation iti New York this morning, E. H.

NEW YORK, Oct. 27.—The stock I narket was thrown Into a state of de norallzation at the opentng today as a ■«iuH of the suit for dissolution Insti uted by the government against the nlted States Steel Corporation. Pre- i cdlng tho opening here there had been j leavy soles of steel common In the I -ondon market by New York interests j it losses extending to seven points. ] The floor of the Stock Exchange was j i scene of confusion.

Th* preferred tock fall hack to 10814 yesterday, some time after the stock market had closed, but it brought many of the brokers back to their offices In a hurry to lay plans for today’s mar ket and take advantage of the earlier opening of the foreign exchange. Deal ers in put nnd call privileges were busy all night sending orders to London. Word of the sharp decline of .steel In London caused no surprise in New York this morning, and traders pre pared for a lively day when the Stock Exchange opened here at 10 o’clock. Fear of any unexpected development* today was dispelled by the length of time traders had had to digest the news, and by the fact that rumors of the government’s Intention had long prevailed. Steel common stock closed yesterday at 58>/2 and the preferred stock at 103%. As a basis for enmparison of today's fluctuations It was remembered that In May, 1904, steel common sold as low as 8%, and that about a year ago It touched 947s at the culmination of a bull movement based upon the expec tation of an advance in the dividend.
