Now York, Aug. 30. Jewels said to

Poughkeepsle, nnd wife of I. Reynolds
Adrlance, millionaire mowing machine
maker of that city, havo been seized
by Collector Loeb.
Mrs. Adrlance was held to $7,500
ball for her appearance before the fed
eral grand Jury on the specific charge
of smuggling Into the United States
JS.000 In pearls, lace and Jewelry, selz
.u under spectacular circumstances
upon tho nrrlval of tho White Star
liner Baltic here Sunday.
At the same time there passed Into
the possession of customs officers the
other gems snld to total $100,000 In
value, regarding which Mrs. Adrlance
must make a satisfactory statement
at a hearing Thursday afternoon at 2
o'clock. These gems were first taken
as security for Mrs. Adriance's appear
nnce before Commissioner Alexnnder.
her detention having taken place on
Sunday afternoon when It wns not
possible for her to obtain ball.
Collector William Loeb, Jr., viewed
this "forfeit" and ordered its seizure
until the time and place of the pur
chases should be established nnd evi
denco given that nil duties that could
he assessed legally had been paid. All
this Jewelry was In Mrs. Adriance's
possession when she went abroad sev
en months ngo to Join her dnughtcr
Marlon, a student in Rome. Some of
the Jewelry, It is known, wns bought
in New York, but more of It wns pur
chased abroad, It is said, and Loeb
will require proof that It did not come
Into tho country as did tho necklace
seized on Sunday.
In tho event of conviction, Mrs. Ad
rlance on tho charges so far advanced
will bo liable to n penalty of more
thnn $20,000, beside the flno that may
be fixed by tho court. Tho law pro
vides that smuggled Jewelry shall be
forfeited, the duty at tho rate of CO
per cent shall bo paid and n specific
penalty of 50 per cent shall be as
sessed. On the necklace, which Is val
ued at $0,000, forfeiture, duty nnd pen.
nlty would aggregate $12,000. On the
gold nnd silver mesh bags seized at
the samo time and which are valued
at $100, forfeiture, duty nnd pennlty
would aggregate $S4Q, On tho lace,
which Is valued at $5,000, forfeiture,
duty and pennlty would reach $0,500.
a total of $22,010.
No case in tho long list of sensa
tional developments since Mr. Loeb
took charge of tho port of New York
has created such a stir in official clr
cles as this.
Among officials there was llvelj
speculation about the source of the In
formation upon which Special Agent
Wall based his insistence that Mrs.
Adrlance prove that she had nothing
In her possession except what she had
"Nobody shall know," he said. "This
source of information is my stock In
trade. If I divulged it I would sacri
fice what valuo I have to tho govern
ment. My wife wanted to know this
morning, but she didn't find out."
It became known, however, that
Wall's Information regarding Mrs. Ad
rlance camo from the samo persons
who had put him on his guard against
former Governor Rollins of New
Hampshire, who was arrested on a
charge of smuggling a short time ago.

TO SUPPORT BERRY
f-oi Republican Stale Ticket,
Philadelphia, Aug. 30.
The most significant and Impo tant
development of the state campaign
thus fai If found in the refusal of
prominent nnd potential men In thf
William Penn Party In this city tc

combination od tht Keystone Part
The fact that thousands ot voters
who havo been allied with reform
movements Intend to support the full
Republican state ticket. Including tho
nominees for congress, has necessitat
ed tho withdrawal of the William Penn
Party from the field, and the men who
are behind the Berry candidacy are
now seeking to marshalthelr Falstaf
fllan outfit under the banner of tin
hybrid Keystone Party.
At a meeMng of the city commlttc

Not only will Mr. Tenet and his as
sociates rerelve the support of this
element, but they will also have the
votes of thousands of Philadelphia In
dependents who might under cer
tain conditions back an independent
Republican for governor, but who un
der no circumstances would support a
radical Bryanlte Democrat like Berry.
The loss of those two elements of
the reform forces has completely do
moralized tho soldiers of fortune who
are behind the Berry movement, fol
