BRYN MAWR, Sept. 24.
Two thrills marked tlio opening of
tho fourth day at the Bryn Mawr Horso
Show, IiUrman Stewart again being the
principal actor In the little drama, which
for a moment looked to bo a trapedy.
Sir. Stewart was riding Sloo Gin, In class
66, a post and rail Jumping class with
unusually Interesting entries. Sloo Gin
became "Slow Gin" just nt an Inoppor
tune moment, and the decided halt In
his gait threw Mr. Stewart completely
over his head. Tho rider remounted al
most Immediately, and neither horse nor
rider was the worse for wear.
Tho second spill and Incidental thrill
followed almost Immediately In the same
clnts when a groom riding Transport for
Willis Sharpe Kilmer took a header of
very much the same description. Trans
port's manners, however, were not con
sidered au fait, and he wns transported
from the ring.
Hrllllnnt weather, which has character
ized each day since tho opening of tho
show, continues. A heavy blanket of dew
was overywhero apparent In tho early
hours, but the sun coming from behind a
mist later In tho morning quickly dried
tho damp grass and soggy canvas cover
ing the sands. Later the band appeared
and soon every person was happy.
Regardless of Mr. Stewart's acrobatic
attempts to win a blue, tho first prizo went
to Howard II, Henry, on Colonel Obannen,
a new horse. The second wan token by
Templar, nn entry of Louis C. Clark, Jr.

winner, from Glen Riddle Farms.
Sally Combeo, entered by F. Ambrose
Clark, and another blue ribbon horse, took
fecond In the contest. Third and fourth
honors went to Fallan, of Highland Fnrm,
and Wild Irishman, last year's winners
of the Radnor Challenge Cup, and entered
from William T. Clothier's Valleyhlll
Mr. Stewart figured in a third spill
hardly before ha had brushed the tan
baik from his clothing following the other
two, He wis riding Benjamin, Now York
entiy of Robert .L. Gerry, when the horso
refused In front of hedge near the judge's
:nnd. The rider went head over heels
to the ground.
Stewart lashed savagely at the horse's
ne'-k with his crop after remountlntr, but
could not make Benjamin take a rail

Horses which have been consistent In

others which since the opening of the
?how hae taken several blue ribbons, are
the subject of considerable speculation.
One of the burning questions among spec
tators seems to be, which horse will such
nnd such an owner enter In champion
ship competition from his string of win
nets. A number of favorites of other days
hive continued in their old-time form at
Rryn Mawr during the week, while a few
newcomers have shown marked ability to
rallop off with first prizes.
Among the hounds, the principal com
J'etltors todaj are the Radnor Hunt Club,
the Elkridge, Hunt Club and the G. S. V.
ftunt Club. The Judging will bo confined
exclusively to half-breed hounds which
Till be seen; bitches, dogs singly and In

Short Term Notes of Ten
WASHINGTON, Sept. 34. Following
up his denunciation of 10 Southern
banks, which he charged with hoarding
and tefuslng to lend money only nt ab
normally hlith rates of Interest, Secre
tary of the Treasury McAdoo today
fired a broadside at tho New York
banks. He called attention to the fact
that the New York Institutions had re
fused to refund certain short term notes
of tho State of Tennessee.
Mr. McAdoo in his statement nssertod
that If further attempts to refund the
Tennessee notes failed, he personally
would find banks in other parts of tho
country which will undertake the re
funding. He sa'd:
"Senator Lea, of Tennessee, Informs
mc that the State of Tennessee has $1,
000,000 of short term notes maturing Oc
tober 1 ; that tho State desires to renew
or extend Jl.400,000 of these notes; that
a commission representing the State has
been in New York for some time trying
to effect this loan, but without success.
"It is preposterous that ono of the
great States of the Union should find it
Impossible to procure from the banks
such a comparatively small amount of
"Senator Lea Informed me that he was
going to New York last night for tho
purpose of joining the commission In its
efforts to secure the needed loan. If
Senator Lea and his associates are un
able to procuro from banks In the city
oi new orK, or elsewhere today, and
upon reasonable terms, the desired loan,
I will myself see If banks cannot be
found to take up this loan for the State
of Tennessee on the 1st of October,
next, upon reasonable terms and at a
reasonable rate of Interest."
