were on the tenth and laet lap, had to

unable to force their way through.

Perceiving that the action of the crowd
would prevent a fair finish of the remain

Notwithstanding that the course was re
garded as - mora dangerous than that over
which tbe cup race was run last year and
the drivers sent their powerful machines
over it at a speed at times as high as
ninety miles aa hour and on sharp curves,
only one of the racing cars was reported
to have been smashed and from that tbe
driver, Mongint, and his mechanician es
caped without serious injury. Twenty
miles from the starting line the car driven
by Moglnl burst a tire, and, turning out
of the road, crashed Into a telegraph pole
and was badly damaged. Moglnf was
thrown out, but landed 'safely.
There were numerous minor accidents to
the machines, chiefly damage to the tires,
so tbat the racers were trailed .out at long

with Tracy until the tenth and last lap,
and Traoy clung to his lead.
Tracy scored the' swiftest record for the
lap of the day, covering the 28.11 miles In

of spectators than that which thronged
at vantage points along the course to wit

The start was scheduled for I a. m., but
the spectators began to gather even before
midnight. Before the sun rose almost the
entire couree presented an unique spectacle.
Clustered about the starting line was a
great park of automobiles and strung along
ths crooked course were many hundred
Spectators la Camp.
Knowing that It would be hopeless to try
to secure sleeping quarters at any of the
little villages, the spectators formed In
groups along the roadside for miles, where
they found parking places, and many even
brought camping outfits to prepare break

lights of their cars marked the course long

Spectators and contestants wero astir
early, giving the staid old roads of Long
Island an appearance of life they seldom
assume. At Westbury, where the start
was made, the grand stsnd was crowded
to the limits of its capacity. Many per

of the fair sex risked the denser of early
mists snd fogs to witness a race In a sport
that has so taken hold of popular Interest.
The course is said to be an exooedingly
dangerous one and there were fours of
accidents. There are nine sharp turns no
the course, as follows: Jericho, East Nor.

near Roslyn, Manhassett. Lakevllle, Sear

of the Nassau hospital appeared more like
preparations for a battle between two ar

contest of speed and skill. Eight ambu
lances were sent earlv this morning to
various dsnger points along the course.
Sheriff Frederick Gllderslasvs bad made
equally elaborate preparations to prevent

SUte Binder Howard Tedford of . Mt.

court here to the suit of the labor union
people of this sity for an .Injunction re
straining the state officials from paying
him for the binding of the Official Register,
because of the work being done outside of
the state. In his answer Mr. Tedford al
leges that the courts have no Jurisdiction
and that the secretary of state, only,, hss
authority to pass on the work done and if
he finds It properly done to issue a warrant
for the payment. He explains that the
fact that the legislature required 26,000 ad
ditional copies this year necessitated tak
ing the work out of the state In order to
give the state proper service and a fur
ther reason was the fact that a strike In
this city Inaugurated by the people now
asking for an injunction was the principal
factor that Interfered with doing the work
here. Further he asserts a legal right to
take the work outside of the state becanse
the law, while requiring the state binder
to keep an office "equipped sufficient to do
the work," In this city, does not say thst
the work has to be done in it. , ' (

GYPSY BAND HAS TROUBLE
Party from Bervla Knocked from
Post to Pillar on French
PARIS, Sept. 22. (Specisl Cablegram .to
The Bee.) A psrty of gypsies continues
to have a queer time along the eastern
frontier. It Is being sent from pillar to
post, as no sooner does It turn up at one
place than it Is evicted, to try Its for
tune's elsewhere, with a like result. After
having been expelled from several French
towns, It was conducted by gendarmes to
the border, but the Germans did not rel
ish the society of the gypsies any more
than their neighbors had done, so they
found their way once more across the
frontier. The French officials, however,
were on ths watch, and when the luckless
wanderers appeared st another spot on
their territory, they wers packed off again,
only to be promptly driven back. At the
present moment quite a little army of
French and German troops Is keeping an
eye on the gypsies. Tbey are on French
soil, but a company of Chasseurs is posted
around them. One of their chiefs has
applied to the Servian minister here, as
they hall from his country, asking him
to get them all removed to the Italian
frontier, and the sequel to all this ls being
awaited with considerable Interest.
