were hurt in an unprecedented rush of
automobiles this morning to reach the
cup course. A car driven by William
Woods of Boston'ran down and broke
the back of Joseph Stadler in Long Is
land City. Stadlier died instantly, Henry
F. Sand's car fatally, injured Mary Gcgan
near the 34th street ferry. Ferries and
roads were choked with motors.
Stadler and (Seorge Wyamer were
crossing the street at Steinway and Pot
ter avenues, when they were struck by
a large touring car. Stadlier fell in
front of the automobile and two of the
wheels passed over him, breaking his
spine. Wyamer fell clear of the wheels,
but suffered shock and bruises. The car

The race was postponed until a quar
ter past six o'clock, fifteen minutes af
ter schedule time. The fog obstructed
the course and made the roads slippery.
The first accident occurred when the Fiat

over. 'J he driver and his mechanic were
burled out, but they escaped with small
bruises. The ear wa out of the race.
I,cBlon, the French driver of the Am

half the race done, Wagner, the driver
of a 110-horse power Darracq (French)

Who Wagner Is.
It will be remembered by those who
saw last J ear's race that Wagner, the
young drher who has been chosen to
handle the Darricq car this year, was
a teammate of Ilemery, who won the
1!0S race. On this occasion Wagner
made three rounds of the course t a
fast clip but was compelled to retire.
Abroad Wagner is widely known, and
he has the reputation of being one of
the most finished drhers in Europe. His
first remarkable effort was in the race
over' the Ardennes circuit in 1903, for
light, cars. Wagner won this contest
easily, finishing 32 minutes ahead of

ment of the hose company has been
heard in Montpelier for some time. At

the company. The resolution reciled
that the company was organized in De

been tendered to thief I'itktn at that
time and had been accepted; since then
the company has continued to fight fires
in Montpelier; now after 122 years of
service the company thought it would bs
for the best interests of all, concerned
to retire.
The resolution further stated that
the volunteer company would be out
of commission on October 20, unless
requested to step out sooner by the
proper authority. Chief Wahlcn receiv
ed the resolution this morning and when
interviewed declared that all that could
be done was to form a new company
and try to give the city as good service
as the old one had done.

won for him not only the genuine rcspe.i
but the cordi:tl regard of the members of
the bar to it degree not surpassed by
any judge who has sat upon tho bench of

name wns made immediately upon the
announcement of the resignation of Jus
tice Du"ll hi:-; splendid qualilic.it ions for
the position being recognized as well bv
those who advocated the appointment of
others n by those who sought his eleva

character, would adorn the highest court
in the land. Not only would his appoint
ment to the court of appeal lie nn honor
deservedly conferred usm him he
would ,do" honor to the position, Wash
