klosion in Wall Street, yesterday, the
police succeeded in capturing tnree
(of the six alleged bandits who entered
a. Waterbury coffee house on the night
of Sept. 22. and made ore witn money
tend Jewelry valued at $2,000.
Uiacomo carusso, one or me men
Lorrested yesterday, was seized in con-
.-nection with the bomb plot. At tne
time of his arrest he was armed with
ta. big calibre revolver, but did not get
a chance to use this weapon owing to
the rapid work of Detective Cornelius
IBrown, who took him into custody.
IThe arrest was made at the Second
lavenue elevated station in Chatham
square, New York city. A short time
later, detectives raided an East 15th
street Italian barber shop, where they
k arrested 13 men. Among the prison
ers were Vlncenzo Abato and J?ranK

NO RIGHT

STORES
Judge Wilder Condemns
Methods ' Used By
Sheriffs in Attach
ments Store Keeper
Charged With Assault
on" City Sheriff Is
Freed".
Judge Frank L. Wilder in the City
court this morning took a rap at the
methods used by sheriffs in serving
writs of attachment When he declar
ed that methods being used in closing
up of stores and other business places
when they could Just as well cover
the amount of the attachment by tak
ing possession of enough goods from
the place to cover the amount of the
writ is entirely out of order.
The declaration was made during
the course of the trial of Hyman
Gold who conducts a grocery store
at 392 Park avenue and who was ar
rested by City Sheriff Daniel Delia
on last Friday when the sheriff in
company with, the son of Kalman
Goldberger, a- produce merchant of
353 Water street visited the. Gold
store to collect a bill of " $54 which
Goldberger claimed was due him f r
merchandise purchased by Gold. Gold
was charged with breach of the peace,
assault, resisting an officer and in
terference. Judge Wilder accepted
nolle on all four counts. Delia took
the stand and testified that when he
went to the place and attempted to
serve the writ Gold refused to post
a bond of $50 and later attacked him
with a ketchup bottle and a cleaver.
Gold denied that he had made any
attempt to assault the sheriff. Judge
Wilder also looked unfavorablp upon
the method seemingly used by Gold
berger to take a sheriff with him
when he set out to collect bills and
told Goldberger that if that was the
usual custom that he had better
adapt himself to a new custom. In
this particular case the judge ruled
that goods to the amount of the bond
which Delia asked for could have
been taken from the - stock of" the
store and cover the writ, until the
matter had been settled in the civil
court.
CLEVER THIEF
GETS $200 AT
STATION OFFICE
A sneak thief working a clever
ruse at the baggage room of the New
Haven line station in this citv last
night robbed Baggage Master Martin
Gib'lm of $200 in cash and made a
clean getaway without Mr. Giblin be
ing able to give any description at all
of the man.
The office in which Mr. Giblin
works is not protected from' public
gaze and while counting the baggage
receipts it is possible for anyone to
observe his movements and it is pre
sumed that the man who did the job
is pretty well acquainted around the
premises and also was well acquaint
ed with Mr. Giblin's movements dur
ing the day.
When the robbery was committed
Mr. Giblin had just finished counting
the receipts and had placed the
money in a wallet preparatory to
turning it in at the ticket office. He
placed the wallet in his inside vest
pocket the vest hanging for a mo
ment upon a hook on the wall. Im
mediately after placing it there a
man stepped into ask some question
about baggage. As Giblin started to
answer him the stranger suddenly
looked at the floor and made a step
forward. "Excuse Tne, but .didn't you
drop some change there," he said.
Giblin stooped to look for the change.
As he ' did so the thief grabbed the
wallet and stepped out of the office.
When Giblin looked up the man and
wallet were gone.

HARDING
REJECTS
LEAGUE
At Des Moines He Says
He Will Have Nothing
To Do With Present
Covenant Qut Will
Consult, With Ameri
cans After Election in
An -Association For
Peace.
Enroute with Senator Hardfhg,
Des Moines, la., Oct 7 Senator War
ren G. Harding opened his five day
invasion of the Middle West hei-e to
day with a broadside attack upon the
Wilson -League of Nations, and a
promise that as soon as possible after
election he will consult with the "best
minds" of the country and especially
with the United States Senate, toward
tne rormation ot association of na
tions designed to promote interna
tional peace. "f
Speaking for the first time since
President Wilson's recent appeal in
the League's, behalf.. Senator Hardins
asserted that the League already has
been "scrapped" by the hand of its
own cniet architect.
An audience of nearly 10.000 tei--
sons who crowded the coliseum here, I
heard the Senator's assault uoon th
League and a sternly uttered warning
which accompanied it.
"To those," he said, "who desire to
incur the hazard of entrusting any of
the powers of the republic to the di
rection of a super government or to a
council for foreign powers, I frankly
"Vote the Democratic ticket and
pray God to protect you from the j
consequences of your folly." j
"Interpretative" or "clarifying"!
reservations, designed to make, more
specific America's obligations under
the league are not sufficient safe
guards for American independence,
Senator Harding declared. These ob
ligations, he said, are already specific
enough. .
"I want to turn my back on them,"
he asserted. - ''It is not the interpre
tation, but rejection, that I am seek
ing." Charges that his own position on
the league is uncertain, Senator Hard
ing ascribed to Democratic attempts
to "befog the isssue."
"I do not want any one to be mis
led," he said. "I will have no man's
vote on a misunderstanding and I am
equally determined, if I can prevent
it, that my opponent will have no
man's vote oh a misunderstanding." .
"My1 position is that the proposed
league strikes "a deadly blow at our
constitutional integrity and surrenders
to a dangerous extent our independ
ence of action. The Democratic plat
form and candidate rejects this' posi
tion as 'utterly vain if not vicious.' ,
"The issue, therefore. . is clear. In
simple words it is that he favors going
into tne aris league and I mm in
favor of staying out."

mm LIST
Claim That Registration Of
fice Should Have Been
s. Opened Till Six. .
"Fifty and perhaps a hundred men
and women who were entitled to reg
ister" were deprived of their right by
the stubbornness of a public official
who refused to abide by the law or
take legal advice," was the comment
of a- prominent Republican on the ac
tion of Republican General Registrar
William Lounsbury, who on Tuesday
afternoon closed the doors of the-reg-istrars"
office at 5 o'clock and refused
to allow those who were , waiting to
enter and register.
There were about 15 waiting at 5
o'clock and the first' man in the line
went in and was informed that it was
one minute after 5 and therefore he
was too late.
The law passed at the special ses
sion of the Legislature explicitly says
that the registrars should receive
applications until 5 o'clock, Standard
time, which means 6 o clock, daylight
saving time.
Attorney Samuel C. Shaw saw
Lounsbury in reference to the matter
early Tuesday and discussed the clos
ing hour with him.
Lounsbury contended . that he
should close at 5 o'clock day-light
saving time and Attorney Shaw re
quested him to get an opinions from
the City Attorney Comley bat Louns
bury answered that he wanted no le
gal opinion he .was going .to. close at
5, . .
Attorney Shaw then saw Judge
Comley, City Attorney of the city.
Judge Comley said that there was no
question but that the office should
keep open . until 6 o'clock day-ligh't
saving 'time, but when he tried to get
Lounsbury on the phone he could
get no one to answer.
Some of those who were refused
the right to vote are . contemplating
legal action against Lounsbury for
illegally depriving them of their legal
rights to register, it is said.
A number of Republicans relied on
the printed card which was sent
broadcast throughout the state to wo
men, in which it was stated that they
had until -6 -o'elock, Tuesday af tec
noon in which , to register.

These" men are recognized through

in the interest of the election of the
Democratic nominees and everywhere
they go they are given great ovations
and their presentation of the issues of
the campaign are winning many inde

Senator. Hitchcock, is the Demo

.Ebbetts Field, - Brooklyn, Oct. -7.
Five hundred fans were in -line for
admission to the park for the third
world's series game today hours be
fore the gates opened. "Hot dogs"
venders did , a-rushing business as
did others selling pork chops. ,
As a result of the first two games,
many -of the best little baseball, ex-'
perts will not be surprised - now to
see the series drawn out perhaps -to
the full limit,, of nine games, - ;
Weil Matched. ,
, The teams are well matched. They
are both fighting aggregations and
there is plenty of hitting ability on .
both sides. As for pitching the
Dodgers have a slight advantage. But
it is not great enough r to count
heavily if Speaker can juggle his
pitchers successfully in the coming
games. ."-
The contest today in all probabilities
will be a battle between left-handed
pitchers, Sherrod Smith against Wal
ter Mails. The latter joined the Cleve
land club late in August, and by win
ning six games in a row lifted a big
burden -off the- shoulders off Bagby
and Coveleskie in the final dash for
the flag.
Speaker .has made the Brooklyn
players bat against a right-hand
pitching in the two games played.
With the teams traveling .tomorrow it
will enable Coveleskie a three days'
rest, which should put him in first
class condition to pitch Saturday.
Sherrod Smith, the big left hander,
was generally considered to be Man
ager Robinson's choice. He warmed
up with Grimes yesterday and it was
not until just before the game started
that Grimes was finally selected. -
If Smith should prove ineffective,
Manager Robinson can switch to right
hand pitching, using either Mamaux
or Ca.dore, both of whom did well in
the last three innings of the opening
game.
