MAY BE TRAIN ROBBERS.  St. Louis Scientist Saw Work oT Eighteen Years Go in Explosion.  Special to The New York Times. .  ST. LOUIS, Mo., June 20.—By the explosion of an X-ray machine In the office of Dr. -Augn.st Siebert 700 bottles of a liquid light preparation w’hich it took Dr.. Seibert eighteen, yeans to perfect were de.stróyed. The liquid light was composed largely of alcohol and chloroform. One bottle after another exploded, the detonations resembling cannonading.  Dr. Siebert said that he could place no money value on the loss of his liquid, but from a scientific standpoint the loss was great;    •  ” I have been working for eighteen years on the perfection of this light,” he .said, “and it has only been recently that in> efforts W’ere crow'ned with success. Although the loss is severe, 1 s.baU be able to replace Ihe-liquid light withjut much difii-culty. Had the accident occurred a few' months ago the loss would have be«m irreparable.”  t^resiueiu v    -    ,    iv.ii.mu uv, ...V  York County Republican Committee pr-> j    nomination to George R.

'  To Escape Jerome goes to Newport from  Philadelphia Via Detroit and Montreal.  PHILADELPHIA. June 20.-When Reginald C. Vanderbilt sought to return to his Newport home some rather circumstanti'al stories were pu'ollshed about the bold way in which he took a train for New Yorkxand went there to the house of his mother-in-law. Mrs. Neilson.  His friends here have now told the true story of his wanderings.  When ready to depart he and hi.s wife took a private car at Broad Street Station and traveled west .several hundred mile.s to Detroit. There a Grand Trunk train picked the couple up and carried them east to Montreal. From that point it was easy to Gome- down through New England to Newport.  It was a long and rather expensive journey, but his friends .say that Mr. \ ander-bilt feels amply repaid in the satisfaction he has e.njoyed over District • Attorney Jerome's valiant attempts to catch him.  lution that William L. Ward be chosen by tae delegation as National Gornm.itteemau frorn New York, there was general applause. The resolution Was adopted unanimously.    ■  GOV.
