The 13th Coast Defense Command reached Brooklyn last night after pending two weeks of camp and maneuvers at Fort H. G. Wright, Fishers Island, and thousands of relative and friends greeted the 900 odd members at the Armory. The reception of the gunners rivaled that of the return of the A. E. . man. Ihe first transport, the General Sawtelle, docked at the pier at N. 2d t at 6:15 o'clock, and an hour later the General Nathaniel Greene brought the remainder of the men. The two companies of the 9th Regt., a Manhattan unit, returned on the Ordnance and were landed at a North River pier. "Thefcest 18th and the best camp the regiment has held in its 30 years of going to Fort H. G. Wright," said Col. Sydney Grant, commanding officer. . "The best National Guard unit I have ever seen," said Gen. C. J. Bailey, attached to the regular army district at Fort H. G. Wright. Place of honor on the General Sawtelle was given a fly trap, declared to be the most efficacious, trap ever invented. Maj. Frank Bradner, medical officer, invented the trap and it holds the record, 3.236 flies in four hours. Every man in the outfit expressed himself as delighted with the camp despite the gruelling work. The only regret was that bad weather prevented all of them being allowed to man the big guns. A heavy fog prevented all firing on the scheduled days except Thursday, Friday and a part of Wednesday. Col. Grant said that an innovation in gunnery was the use of the radio telephone to record hits and missei. It was the first time that the radio telephone has ever been used in the army and it proved capable of marvelous speed. One station was aboard the small boat towing the target at sea. Thirty seconds after a shot the result was received by the crew of the gun. Tne regiment paraaea rrom me pier through Bedfwd1!.,a,Y. and Jefferson ave. to the armory. At Myrtle and Bedford aves., Sir Thomas Lipton reviewed the regiment. Jie was returning from the Police Field Day games and Maj. Edward Rellly was the only officer who saw him. At the armory the regiment was formed and Col. Grant made a short address, in which he thanked his men for their splendid behavior, congratulated them on their soldierly qualities and referred to the co-operatiou of the Regular Army units at Fort H. G. Wright. The battalian commanders were then ordered to -dismiss their commands and the regiment wound up it annual fortnight of strenuous soldiering.

Walter J. I'ahy and Gen. Coleman Dupont. It Is said that 600,000 traveling men are represented and win organize and carry on the campaign in all States. The newspapers owned by Governor Cox, In an editorial of Auk, IT), scored the traveling salesmen as "unmitigated bores," and said; "The art of salesmanship is a cond deal of a nuitance to the public.

PARIS MIDI SEES FRANCO-BRITISH PACT IN DANGER Pictures France Left to Fight Germany and Russia With Only Polish Aid. iflj Cable tn The Brooklyn Foijte and PMlatfl-pl PvbHo Ledger; Copyright, 1920.1 Taris, Aug. 21 A leading editorial In the Paris Midi today, under the headline, "Save the Franco-British Alliance," nays: "After long conversations between M. I'aleolgue and Lord Derby we are permitted to believe the alliance has been saved once more. But events suggest reflections for the good of the world. "First, if we desire a durable alliance our chiefs of state should meet no more. On Aug. S they signed a magnificent accord at Hythe concerning Poland. Next day the British Government Interpreted it far differently from the ideas of France, and at the same time the . French Government, in opposing this error, committed a greater one by recognizing Wrangel. It is manifest that it we continue with this sort of thing even the word alliance will be a vain one. Therefore Premier Miilerand should be prevented from seeing Lloyd George again. Secondly and this is for us If we hope to be alone against Germany and Russia we have only to continue our little play of unfortunate Initiatives. Henceforth and without anger the British may wish us good luck, both with Wrangel and with the execution of the Treaty of Versailles. They may light their pipes and without disturbing themselves wait for Germany to get ready to attack us. True we will cut a magnificent figure, defying both tne Soviets and Germany at the same time without other aid than the Polish Army. "Thirdly If we have the good sense to understand that we will be crazy to lose this active friendship of England we will renounce this hop, skip and Jump from one confernce to another. On the other hand, we will call together, either on this side of the Channel or otherwise, architects whom vie will ask to put into condition without undue heate this damaged foundation of our alliance. Instead of deluding ourselves with the phrases 'perfect accord' and "unanimity," we must determine on what points our countries can co-operate and on what points they cannot." MIRACLES OF HEALING STIR ALL TIPPERARY TO RELIGIOUS FERVOR Belfast, Aug. 21 Intense excitement prevails in Templemore, County Tip-perary, the Scene of the recent murder of Police Inspector Wilson, over what are reported to be weird manifesta tions of healing. The Thurles correspondent of a local newspaper sends details of what he describes as "an extraordinary miracle," which lie says began yesterday evening and still continues. "About 6 p.m.," he says, "all the statues and holy pictures In the house of Thomas Divan, a news agent, began to bleed. Crowds of awed people witnessed the strange manifestation and wonderful cures are being effected. "A crippled soldier, who was carried down to Divan's on crutches, with a leg which had been badly shattered by shrapnel In France, walked back from the house with full use of his limbs. He had been three years in a hospital. A little girl, a victim of consumption, was borne into the house and she, too. was cured. "People are thronging to Temple-more to see the cures, news of which is being discussed throughout Tlppe-rary." CHICKEN "SANDING" CASE Because a complaint is now lodged before the Health Department against the Kassel Poultry Co., Inc., on a charge of "sanding" chickens, and the Board lias not yet acted upon the same, and because Commissioner of Markets O'Malley demands that the company give up Its stand in West Washington Market, the concern has secured an order to show cause why O'Malley should not be enjoined from Interfering with it in the pursuit of its business of dealing in live chickens. Argument on the application will be heard Monday morning by Justine Philip J. McCook in the Supreme Court. A complaint was lodged against the concern in March last that a carload of poultry consigned to it had been overcropped or the crops of the chickens sanded to increase weight. The company claims that the dispute has passed Into a personal controversy between the commissioner and the company. ARCHITECT'S HOME ROBBED j Tho residence of Francis B. Hoff-1 man, an architect, at 58 E. 79th St., Manhattan, was burglarized some time Wednesday or Thursday by men who made their entrance by' cutting a pane of glass from a window.

The eyes of the Mayor and it was "Mayor's Day," by the way and Police Commissioner Enriglit glowed with pride, as well they might, while Sir Thomas Lipton. who sat between them, said again and again that never had he seen anything like it abroad. Mounted Police Thrill Crowds. To see members of the mounted force tear down the straightaway, riding three, horses abreast, or in pyramid formation, or hanging by a heel from the stirrup of a galloping steed, was enough to make the gooseflesh rise and stir the most dormant pulse. Yet there were surprisingly few accidents. Policeman Louis Moses of the Richmond Hill precinct, a mounted man. was knocked from his horse during one of the Roman races, close against the fence, and removed to the (Wvi jsiaiiu rtoHpuai sunering rrom a rrac-tured hip. According to Inspector Mc-Elroy, Moses was something of a hero, for a group of horses was running very close against the rail and Moses was attempting to act as a buffer between them and the crowd leaning against the frail barrier. 1 In another race, Policeman Arthur Wertheim of 1103 Ave. I, Brooklyn, was thrown to the track and suffered a sprained ligament in his foot. section' of TiL'h" I A. u,.a aC V . 11 wounded soldiers from Fox Hills, guests of Miss Clara White of 344 W. 72d St., Manhattan, were seated, gave way and the soldiers fell in a heap. None of them was injured, but there was a rustle of excitement, and gallant sir 1 nomas Lipton and the Mayor were among the first to extend a help- tng hand. The Mayor enjoyed himself ! like small boy and proved himself i a very human sort of person during the afternoon. He was filled with de-1 light at the antics of the trick mule which bumped off everybody who tried to ride it and sent them sprawling outside the ring. The Mayor laughed at this until he was red In the face. The list of accidents totaled less than a dozen, which was considered aid teams, representing seventeen a remarkable record among 40.000 i states, Canada and Mexico, have been people.

Police Ticket Sales Reach $305,000, Enright Reports Ths Police Field Days were formally opened yesterday with a luncheon in the Astor Galleries of the Waldorf Astoria. Richard E. Enright, Police Commissioner, presided. Others seated upon the dins were, Sir Thomas Lipton. Mayor John F. Hylan, Maj. Gen. Robert Lee Bullard, Rear Admiral James H. Glennon, Herman A. Aletz. Deputy Polilce Commissioners John Daly, William J. Lahey and John A. Leach and John M. Riehle, president of the National Democratic Club. Others present Included William Thomas Knight. Geh.

Otherwise there were no clouds to mar the day except the rain clouds. Houdini Outwits Police. The remarkable Mr. Houdini had a squad of policemen strap him Into a stralttncket. after which has feet were tied to a bloc,; and pulley arrangement and he was hauled, head down, to the top of a scaffold 30 feet from the ground. Hanging thus, he worked himself out of ;i;s bonds, to the wonder of everyone. One of the best events of the day was the drill of the mounted men on tho inside field. To the signal of a' whistle, they went through various ccmplicated formations, wheeling in groups, dismounting and mounting with alacrity, separniing into squads, dashing at .brca knock .' speed across the turf and displaying every trick in their little book. Another feature of excellence was the setting up drill of III ntrgtlll UX III, c iiiu-i uinirv,ui 0 office, amused the Mayor and the Commissioner with a hut'lesque on the awarding of medals for heroism on parade day. Miss Dorothy Jardon. formerly prima donna of the Chicago Opera Company, opened the program by singing "The Star Spangled Banner," accompanied by the bands of the Police, Fire and Street Cleaning Departments. Thru came the most unusual aeronautical exhibition, including a startling drop in a parac hute by Allan Law from a great height. The versatile Mr. Law looped-tlie-loop while standing on the wings of his plane. Wrestling, boxing, Madame Berzac's pony, dog and mule circus from Luna Park, a polo game, a drill by the rifle battalion of tho Police Department, comic races, the pony express and any number of other events helped to round out a day which may be fairly said to be exceptional in the history of the Police Department. It was all that the Olympic BMnM irr Belgium have been, only a Utile more so, as one policeman said, and if you don't go next Saturday when the Governor will be there, you will miss something, indeed. It is even worth the price of admission to hear the Police Glee Club sine the old songs such as "When You and I Were Young. Maggie" and "Alice Ben Bolt." Take lt all in all it is an '1 8 karat" show. LENINE CALLS ON RUSSIA TO CONTINUE TO FOMENT REVOLUTION EVERYWHERE Berlin, Aug. 2 The newspapers of Petrograd publish a speech by Nikolai Lenine, the Soviet Premier, in Moscow, in which he expressed an uncompro- mising policy toward foreign countries, i according to advices received today !

Y., census figures, revised, show a population of 22,075, previously an-nounced at 22.026. i Commissioned Enright announced ; that $305.0(10 had already been depos- j ited in the bank from the proceeds of i ticket sales. He said In all probabll- 1 ity last year's record of $318,000 would be surpassed by next Saturday. Mayor Hylan thanked all who had helped to make the Field Days a success, and praised all who had contributed to a cause "which is of a highly laudable character." Sir Thomas iLpton was hailed as the Prix Prince of sportsmen by Commissioner Enright. Everyone In the room arose and applauded the distinguished visitor. Sir Thomas said he had heard of 3 challenge from Canada, but regardless of this he. Intended to issue one himself next year. He said he realized he would be compelled to build a faster boat and the next time he brings a challenger here It will be the rnstest one of Its kind that he has ever sent out to lift, the coveted prize. ATHLETIC EVENTS AT POLICE GAMES INCLUDE MANY STARS: Attractive Features and Novel ties Make Field Sports Interesting. Seldom if ever have so many stellar sporting events been held at one carnival as those which featured the first of the two Police Field Days yesterday at the Gravesend racetrack. The spa cious field provided ample facilities for each of the events and set the tongues of the athletic fans wafging regarding the holding of the next Olympic games in New York City. Many old-timer said it would not be necessary for the Olympic officials to construct a new stadium, as they thought the Gravesend track could be altered to meet the demands of the international classic. They even went so far as to say that it would be a fine thing to make" the celebrated track the permanent site for all Vlg: outdoor athletic meets In nhe Metropolitan district. What appeared to appeal strongest to most of the spectators were the two thoroughbred horse races. Two of the Jockeys, Joe Notter and Eddie Taplin, old-tiniors, gave a fine exhibition on the maiden thoroughbreds who competed from the stable of Ole Crossway. The horses were neck and neck over the entire distance, and had there been any judges, thev would have had their hands lull picking the wim.'ir. Burlesque Boxing Amuses. Other events watched with interest were pole and push ball exhibitions by members of the department. Benny Leonard, the world's lightweight champion, and Willie Meehan, the Pacific Coast heeivyweight, who holds a decision over Jack Dempsev, gave an exhibition of fisticuffs. Leonard more than held his own with his much heavier opponent for three rounds. Bill Brown was the third man in the ring. Orville Wanzer, Traffic C, with handicap of 10 inches, won the discus throw with an actual heave of 115 feet. Gene Jennings was the best in the running high Jump and annexed first place with a leap, of .5 feet 7 ichee. , McDonald Wins 150-Yard Dash. Jay J.
