DEFEAT MAYOR ON EXTENSION BY 12 TO 7 i Reasons why Mayor Wilson's pet Broad street extension project was not brought before the Board of Al dermen last night, were made clear this morning, when it was learned that 19 Republican aldermen held a caucus just before the Council con vened, and knocked the scheme higher than the proverbial cocked hat. According to reports this morning, It seems that Mayor Wilson, just be fore he left for Canada with the An cient and Honorable Artillery, of Boston called in a number of coun cilmen who were friendly to him, and asked them as a personal favor to put the bill through last night. A caucus was called accordingly, and everything was fixed up so that the final punch might be put through. Trouble was encountered by the mayor's friends, however, and a mo tion to carry the bilf was defeated by a vote of 12 to 7. The bill's oppo nents attempted to carry their vic tory further by introducing a motion to carry the project to the Council and end it there once and for all. This move, however, was defeated. Taking it all in all, it was a close shave for the well known Broad street plan. ZELENSKA NOT THE BOMB MAN New Tork, Oct. 5 William J.

They were the first songs heard from the Claveland Indians since the nigrht be fore Ray Chapman was killed in New Tork by a pitched ball. Speaker says they win start against Brooklyn with the cocky confidence that marked the Indians' playing be fore "Chappie ' passed out ot tne iine- up. ... ... , Speaker would not say positively what nitcher he will select to open the series, but he indicated Stanley Coveleskie would get the assignment with second choice naturally resting on Jim Bagby. If Manager Robinson of the Dodgers starts a left-hander against the In dians, which seemed likely, Joe Wood, the former famous pitcher of the .Bos ton Red Sox, who shot the Giants chance in 1912, will patrol right field in Dlace of Elmer Smith. In left field Joe Evans will hold forth instead of Charlie Jamieson, and George Burns will take up duty at first base instead cf Wheeler Johnston. If Burns re places Johnston he will bat fourth in stead of in Johnston's place in sixth place. Wocd will be dropped down. Smith ordinarily hits in the clean-up position. I expect to use Steve O Neill in every game. Other catchers are with us, of course, but Steve will be in there all the time."

T 1 1 WW1 I lliajr XVWAl&MXAt Two Weeks Longer. v The jitney bus owners were still in session as this paper went to press and had been in continuous session from 9 o'clock discussing the action which th'e jitney men sfi,ould take in view of the failure of -the, Ordinance committee to report an ordinance or the Aldermen to do anything at last night's meeting in reference to the petitions to change the routing of tho jitneys through the city. The great majority-of the men hav been insisting that the jitneys should stop at once and show the Aldermen what they think of their procrastina tion. Tho main complaint is about the routes which are compelled to use Water and Housatonic avenue. The roads are so bad on (these streets that it is impossible to run on them without wrecking the jitneys and causing enormous expenses for re pairs. The residents of Bethany Chapel section denounce the ( action or fail ure of the Aldermen tj act in strong terms. . They say that in order to get to the center of the city they must go on a sightseeing trip through the suburbs on the jitneys as no trolley cars run out there. Parishoners of St. Patrick's church who live in that section also com plain that on the present routing they are not able to get any convey, ance to church as. the cars- do not run and by the ordinance the jitnevs are not allowed to go anywhere near the church. The jitney men say that when the orinance was passed they were toid . to try the new routes and if after ; a trial they were found unsatisfactory to come to the members of the Ordi nance committee and the routes would be changed but last night it devel oped that there had been no meeting of the Ordinance commute and soma or tne memoers of the committe told the jitney men that they did not know that there was any petition for . a change of routes before the com mittee although two were referred at the last meeting of the Aldermr two weeks ago.

Melody, assistant secretary of the town committee, happened to get his appointment. It was said today that Melody is not even a voter in Bridgeport, yet ho seems to be taking a leading part in the campaign here.
