CHICAGO OPERATORS ТНШК STRIKE SURE Telegraph Companies Will Not Receive Union Com-t mittee. FILL ’FRISCO VACANCIES Btrikebreakers at Work in Postal and Western Union Offices. Both Special to The New York Times. CHICAGO, 111., July 1.—The most menacing stage yet reached In the telegraph strike developed to-day In Chicago. Western Union officials flatly r used to consider the reinstatement, of operator William Main, who was discharged last Friday as a ” wire spy ” of the union. Subsequently preparations were actively begun for a walkout of 1,500 union men in the Chicago offices. General Secretary Wesley Russell of the Commercial Telegraphers’ Union to-night would not say when a strike order may be expected. He said, however, that he practically has abandoned hope of preventing trouble in Chicago. For several hours he was in communication by wire with President Small, in San Francisco, and with the Executive Board of the union in New York. Meanwhile arrangements were made to secure a camp site on the Michigan shore. It is proposed to transport strikers there in the event of trouble. Feeling among the -operators ran 1 igh In the afternoon, when it became knov n that General Superintendent Cook of the Western Union had ignored a union committee delegated to plead Main’s caie. Demands were made on the leaders that they call a special meeting of tfc e union immediately with a view to authf rizing a strike. More conservative heads checked the movement. It is probable a special mass meeting will be held to-m arrow or Wednesday, and it is said the ac'.ion is almost certain to be radical. The 1.500 operators in Chicago who »would be affected by a strike order include men in both the Western Union and Postal offices. Two hundred of the number are girls. The union claims a “ 95 per cent.” organization in this city. SAN FRANCISCO. July l.-The first Installment of strikebreakers to take the places the telegraph operators now on strike In this city reached San Francisco 'yesterday, and will be put to work in the main offices of the Postal and Western Union to-day. The operators are regular employes of the telegraph companies, and have been drawn from the offices in Eastern cities to fill the vacancies here until the companies can engage new men. The Santa FAand Southern Pacific overland trains brought a number of nonunion operators from Chicago, Cincinnati, Omaha, Des Moines, Kansas City, and other places, and more are expected to arrive within two or three days. Five operators of the Postal Company arrived Vesterday and reported at the office In the Ferry Building. The men stated that they had been sent here for temporary work, and would return to their regular posts as soon as operators could be engaged for the local offices. The non-union operators are being paid large bonuses for their work. The newcomers displayed an anxiety to avoid meeting the officers of the telegraphers union, saying that they did not wish to be recognized. Among the imported men were several chief operators from Eastern cities. ‘ KENO, Ne^., July l.—As the result of the action of Supt. A. H. May in dismissing two operators in the Reno Western Union office last Friday, four other operators have quit work, and Manager Brown states that he will not be surprised If a general walk-out Results. Owing to the shortage of men business with Salt Lake was six hours behind this morning. TRACTION ROW SOON OFF. Grievance« of Albany Trolley Employes Will Be Arbitrated. ALBANY, July 1.—For half an hour early this morning the employes of the United Traction Company on the Albany apd Troy Divisions were out on strike. For a time it threatened to develop into a serious tie-up. of the road, and probably a repetition of the strike of 1901, which continued for several days, and during which two lives were lost. At, a conference between General Manager Fassett, representing the company, and a Joint committee, representing the employes of the two divisions, it was agreed to submit the dispute regarding the wages of the men to a board of arbitration. The decision of the board is to be final, thus averting further trouble. During the strike of 1901 it was necessary to call out fthe militia. Two of Albany’s representative business men weFe shot and killed by the militiamen while standing near their places of business. The Guardsmen fired at a crowd of sympathizers, the bullets striking the two men. A settlement of the strike followed soon after. SHIP FAILS TO PASS FORT. Vain Naval Attempt to Attack Newport in War Game. NEWPORT, July 1.—The opening feature of the war game which is to be played during the next two weeks by order of the War Department, with the defenses of Narragansett Bay as a centre, was an unsuccessful attempt to-night to run past Fort Adams by a ship of the enemy.” The ship was the Quartermasters' steamer General Robert Swartwout. It tried to run in under cover of darkness, but was discovered and technically put out of action. As soon as the “ enemy ” had been picked up by a searchlight from the fort the call to quarters was sounded and all the great guns .were manned. The strictest discipline is to be maintained at both Fort Adams and Fort Oreble in the entire fortnight of the manoeuvres, Just as if the artillerymen were engaged in actual hostilities. At present there are five companies of United States artillerymen at Fort Adams, the Ninety-seventh, One Hundred and Second, One Hundred and Tenth, and One Hundred and Seventeenth, and the Fifty-second, which arrived to-day from Fort Rodman, New Bedford. At Fort Greble there are two companies, the One Hundred and Ninth and the Fourteenth. During the present week the work of the encampment will be done entirely by the regulars, but next Monday several Rhode Island National Guard companies are to be detailed t* Join in the manoeuvres. 50,000 SEE GREAT AUTO RACE. Lancia the First Off in the Grand Prlx at Dieppe. DIEPPE RACE COURSE. July 2.-5 A. M.—The day of the great Grand Prix automobile race dawned clear and bright. The roadway dried up nicely during the night and promises to be very fast. Fully 50,000 people lined the track to witness the start. Before coming to the post the pilots of several of the most powerful machines were very doubtful as to whether they would be able to complete the course with the amount of gasoline allowed them. The betting odds on the Flat cars lengthened on this account. Some of the experts predict that one-third of the entries will be stranded on the roadside. Christie, one of the American competitors, is confident that he will be able to control his machine, and declares that If his gasoline holds out li9 will show Europe a clean pair of heels. The signal to start was given by six small saluting cannon opposite the tribune. With the sound of the first report Lancia, in a Flat car, shot by the stand, the first away. He was sent off "with a roar of applause. The other competitors followed at minute intervals. Duray, in a Lorraine de Dietrich, w’as fourth; Szisz, driving for the Renaults, was ninth; W. C. Christie, in his American machine, was twelfth; Nazzaro, in another Fiat, was eighteenth; Heath, another American, driving a Panhard, was twenty-fifth, and Elliott F. Shepard, also an American, was the thirty-second man to start. $50 FIRE IN POST OFFICE. Smoke Starts In Sub-Basement and Drives Out Clerks. Fire was discovered in the sub-basement of the Park Row side of the Post Office Building shortly after midnight, and before it had been extinguished 150 letter carriers, who were working on one of the upper floors, were driven from the building by the dense smoke. The fire started in a pile of waste paper, presumably from a lighted cigar or cigarette dropped into a chute leading from the sidewalk to the sub-basement. An effort was made to sound an alarm from the service in the building, but it failed to W’ork, and it was necessary to send over to the City Hall Police Station to summon the firemen. Upon the arrival of Chief Croker and the firemen the blaze was extinguished in less than half an hour. For a while dense smoke came from the windows and gratings, giving the idea that the entire lower portion of the building was on fire, and this caused excitement among the employes, most of whom left the building until the blaze had been brought under control. TROLLEY WIRE BURNS 12. Breaks, Forming Short Circuit, and Passengers Escape In Panic. More than a dozen persons were painfully shocked and burned last evening at Bedford Avenue and Broadway, Williamsburg, by a broken trolley wire. Mrs. Margaret Bailey of 713 Driggs Avenue, who was burned on the right hip, and Archibald Hughes of 120 Washington Avenue and his daughter Mabel were the worst injured. Mrs. Bailey was treated by Dr. Yogt. Many declined medical aid and went to their homes. Early in the afternoon a trolley pole escaping from control of the conductor broke the overhead wire and caused at that time considerable excitement. While the new wire was being stretched a conductor on a passing car became confused VANDERBILT RAGE IN NEW JERSEY Gov. Stokes Will Send Special Message to Legislature Granting Use of Roads.

This caused the breakage of the repair wire. For the second time there was great excitement in the neighborhood, and it was this break which caused the injuries. ^ One end touched the rail, forming a complete short circuit. The passengers rushed out of the car, falling over each other and trying to escape the wire, now squirming about on the ground. A detail of policemen was hurried from the Clymer Street Station, and with some difficulty calmed the crowd. It was said that several of the railroad employes were more or less shocked and burned. WOMEN RESCUED AT FIRE. Crowd Secs Two Carried Down Ladder from Blazing Building. Fire started on the second floor of the five-story building at 120 East Twenty-seventh Street at 7 o’clock last night and burned its way so quickly through the upper floors that it cut off escape for Mrs. Marion V. Searle and her daughter, Miss Birdie Holt, by means of the stairway, and penned them in their rooms on the top floor. When the firemen arrived Miss Holt was at the front window calling for help, while a thousand persons stood in the street unable to render aid. The elder woman became unconscious from smoke and dropped to the floor. Her daughter dragged her to the window and held her head to the air and waited for the extension ladder to be raised. Firemen Edward Cook and John Brennan ran up the ladder as it was being raised. The ladder ended at the fourth floor. With a scaling hook Brennan got to the fifth floor window and passed out the unconscious woman to Cook, and both men carried her down safely. Firemen Walter Duggan and Gustave Moje then carried down Miss Holt. . The fire was discovered in the shop or F. Touge & Co., on the second floor, a ladies’ tailoring establishment age was about $1,500. The dam- CHILD BURNED TO DEATH. Four-Year-Old Girl Plays with Firecrackers In Parents’ Absence. Helen M. Blanchard, the 4-year-old daughter of Frederick J. Blanchard, an employe of the Edison Electric Light Company, living at 1,818 Topping Avenue, The Bronx, was mortally burned last night in the rear yard of her home. The child had been left In the company of her two sisters, 6 and 8 years old, and her dress caught from some firecrackers with which the children were playing. Mr. and Mrs. Blanchard were visiting friends In Manhattan. The little girl rushed frantically back and forth In the yard, while her two steers, terrified by the sight, cowered in a uistant corner and screamed for aid. Neighbors heard the cries and tried to gain entrance to the yard through the front of the house. The doors were locked and it was not until after thv, screams had died away that some men managed to force their way into the rear of the house. They found Helen dead, her clothes burned from her body. The two sisters were carried into the house completely prostrated by the sight. Dr. Bicklehaupt of Fordham Hospital was called and arrived in time to care for Mrs. Blancnard, who In the meantime had returned home. She was hysterical and for a long time it was feared tnat the shock would have a serious effect. After AIL USHER’S the Scotch that made the highball camou*.—Adv. Special to The New York Times. TRENTON, N. J., July l.-A. R. Par- dington, Acting Chairman of the Vanderbilt Cup Commission, was here by appointment with Gov. Stokes to-day, and received the approval of the Governor for the use of New Jersey roads for the Vanderbilt Cup automobile race on Oct. 19, the elimination race to be run over the same course on Oct. 12. The course has not been announced, and will not be selected until special legislation Is obtained at this session of the Legislature to allow municipalities to accept the provisions of the coming new law. That statute will provide for permission to close certain improved county roads during the running of both races. It is expected that action will be taken on July 5. Wilbur F. Sadler, Jr., President of the New Jersey Associated Autofnobtle Clubs, accompanied Mr. Pardlngton to the Governor’s office and urged the Chief Executive to accede to the plan to bring the annual cup race to New Jersey. Ha pointed out to the Governor that $600,000 was brought to the County of Nassau on Long Island last year. The Governor was at first averse to the plans, but when the financial prospects of the race were presented, and the assurances of Mr. Pardlngton that all expenses incident to the race, such as repairing damage to roads, the employment of police, &c., would be met by the Cup Commission, the Governor said he_would send a special message to both houses of the Legislature urging the passage of the measure legalizing the closing of county roads, providing the proper bill w’ere ready for Introduction. Gov. Stokes refused to recommend a mandatory law, saying that he waa opposed to such legislation. The matter, he explained, was largely a local one, and the Board of Freeholders must vote on the proposition to close the roads selected for races. The Governor concluded by saying there would probably be no opposition. The new law simply will allow Boards of Freeholders permission to close country roads during the races. So far as guarding the course is concerned, the Governor Is agreeable to calllnt out the militia for the service, all ex- ^nses being, of course, paid by the Cup Commission. While at the present moment no course is announced, the officials of Mercer, Essex, Union, and Monmouth Counties have been communicated with, and Mr. Sadler said to-night that good courses had been mapped out in the counties named, all giving an average circuit of thirty miles. State Road Commissioner Elijah Hutchinson said to-night that the counties where the course is laid must have the nest kind of agreements that the roads will be put in good shape after the races are over. He cites the fact that automo-bilists returning through New Jersey from the race on Long Island last year j. threw thousands of tong of stone off improved roads, leaving many of them worn down to the first course of rock, and that Union, Middlesex, and Monmouth Counties this year have been obliged to expend thousands of dollars to repair them.

Cooe, a proprietor of an automobile garage at Sixty-second Street and Broadway, Is looking for a three-thousand-dollar automobile and a man who.described himself as D. M. Jones of the Fifth Avenue Hotel. According to the story Cobe told the police Jones introduced himself as the on of the owner of the Belle Mead Farm, near Memphis, Tenn., and of a number of racers, among them "being Modiste. He said he wanted to buy a car, and ordered one which would cost when equipped $1,648. Cobe; as ho did not know him, told Jones that he must look up his check before he delivered the car, but gave him on Sunday night an order upon his garage for a car which be might use if the inquiries were satisfactory. The check, according to Cobe, was worthless, but he found, when he went to his office, that Jones had called with the order at 6:30 o’clock yesterday morning and obtained from employes a machine worth $3,000. Jones is described by Cobe as a man about 25 years old, 5 feet 10 Inches tall, and of light complexion. He weighed about 160 pounds. The missing car is a Jackson, Model D, No. 1,519, with State License No. 35,492. . . . . .. At the Fifth Avenue Hotel last night it was said that a D. M.

Reported Intention to Transfer Our Battleship Strength Thither. Special to The New York Times. WASHINGTON, July 1.—The Washington Times says: ” Concentration of American strength In the Pacific is to bo the settled policy of the United States from this time forward. It will probably crys-tallze in a year In the transfer of the preponderance of the battleship power to that ocean. The plan has received the unanimous approval of the Naval Board, headed by Admiral George Dewey. There may never be an announcement of the definite adoption of such a policy, but unless conditions markedly change It will be put Into effect. “ Two difficulties stand in the way of a bo^dily transfer of cur battleship strengtH to the Pacific—the danger, of offending Japan and the lack of dock and repair facilities on that ocean. As to the first of these embarrassments it is pointed out that If Japan desires to keep the peace she will not object to sending an American fleet to the ocean in which its most exposed interests lie. If Japan, on the other hand, objects, It will be proof that she is disposed to war.” CASH FOR THIEYES BY SPECIAL TRAIN Marietta Banker Lost $51,000 Here and Hurried Home for $25,000 More.

WILL EXHIBIT “ THE BATH.” R. C. Hall, Who Has Bought It, Will Let Pittsburg Have_ a Look at It. Special to The New York Times. PITTSBURG. July l.-The painting ” The Bath,” by La Touche, which was rejected by the Carnegie Art Gallery committee, though it had won first prize in the International Art Exhibit, was to-day removed from the Carnegie Art Gallery by R. C. Hall, the stock broker, who has purchased the painting. Mr. Hall sent it to an art studio to have it framed.

Special to The New York Times. PITTSBURG, July 1.-D. C. Davis, millionaire banker and oil operator of Marietta, Ohio, lost $76,000 in a clever little bunko game in New York some time ago, and in Alderman Toole’s court to-day he told the story of how he was victimized into not only losing his money, but, after $5I,0u0 had been dropped, how he chartered a special train to go back to Marietta after $25,000 more. During the hearing Davis, who is a Director in the German National Bank of Marietta, stated that he knew It to be a fact that.many Pittsburgers have been swindled by the same scheme. He gave it as his opinion that the trio of alleged confidence men whom he accuses have cleaned up more thaif $1,000,000 in the past two years. Davis told his story at the hearings of W. J. (Jake) Adams and Frank B. Ranger of Pittsburg and Frank Thompson of New York. These are the men who Davis alleges defrauded him of the $76,-000. At the conclusion of the hearing Alderman Toole stated that while he would reserve his decision for a -week he would no doubt dismiss the complaints because of lack of jurisdiction. Former Mayor W. E. Sykes of Marietta, counsel for Davis, was arrested at the conclusion of the hearing on a warrant sworn out by Ranger, charging him with conspiracy to indict. He at once gave bail. Davis said that he was first approached by Ranger and John E. Curry of Marietta last September. They told him that Thompson was the dealer in a faro game In New York, and wanted to. get even with the syndicate which employed him.* j Davis was induced to take $25,000 to New York, and was to play in the game with the money. Thompson, it was agreed, would deal the cards so that Davis would win $100,000. After arriving in New York, Davis was taken to the Imperial Hotel, and from there to a house just off Columbus Avenue, three blocks from the Majestic Hotel. The first night Davis lost his $25,000 the gamblers explained that a mistake had been made, and on Oct. 20 Davis went against the game again with $26,000 and lost the money. The next morning he chartered a train from New York to Marietta and, securing $25.000 more, hustled back to New York, determined to win at any cost, lost. Curry, the witness testified, then took pity on hitn and told him that he was being swindled. Unable to get his money back, Davis sued the trio. When Davis had finished, Curry was placed on the stand and corroborated his testimony. Curry declared that Ranger and Thompson had told him that Davis was the “ biggest sucker ” ever bom.
