Oyster Bay. Long Island, Aug. — President
Roosevelt went out this morning with his son.
Theodore, and Commandants Snyman and Rutz.
Boers recently released from the British prison
encampment in the Bermudas, to shoot at
targets, which he has set up in the woods. The
president's targets showed him to be the best
marksman. Theodore, jr., tied with Command
and Sr.yman for second place. After about an
hour of" this sport the President returned to the
fcotiFe with the party. Senator Millard and Mr.
■/ebster. of Nebraska, were there, presumably
to discuss an appointment for Mr. Webster.
Senator Millard also talked about the arrange
ments to receive the President in Nebraska in
th e autumn.
Bishop Dudley, of Kentucky; Silas Mcßee.
Editor of "The Churchman"; Charles Nagel. of
gt Lcuis; George "W. Hinman, Editor and pub
lisher of "The Chicago Inter-Ocean": Edward
Kent, of Tnrl*. and ex-Congressman Wake
man were Colonel Roosevelt's guests at lunch
eon.
Bishop Dudley has the reputation being
one of the best story tellers among the clergy
men of the South.
Mr. Hinman assured the President that the
Illinois convention has practically pledged him
a solid delegation to the next national conven
tion. He said afterward to a Tribune reporter:
"The State convention Indorsed President Roose
velt's administration unanimously, and the Re
publicans cf the State will eive their support to
his views on Cuban reciprocity. The next legis
lature will undoubtedly elect Representative
Hopkir.s Senator to succeed Mason.
Charles Nagei is one of the reform politicians
In Missouri who aspires to succeed Senator Vest.
"As far as I c?n see." said he, "there is not an
•unfavorable cloud hanging over the Republicans
in mii Mail The State convention has indorsed
President Roosevelt, and we want to see him o^r
next President." In framing the State platform
the tariff question was passed over, because
Missouri has only recently become Republican,
■bjl the issues for the campaign should be out
lined by older Republican States, such as lowa.
It is my opinion that Missouri will support any
tariff policy adopted by long tried Republican
" Mr. WsJcemaa, who Is secretary of the Ameri

account of the work being done by the associa

TO FIGHT XEW BVILDIXG ORDINANCE.
G E. HAKDING AND OTHER ARCHITECTS TO OP
POSE IT WITH TETITIOK.
George Edward HardinK. the architect who dre^tr
the plans for the Holland House, the Commercial
CabJe Building and many other of thr larger build
ingrs in the city, accompanied by three other archi
tects, called at the City Hall yesterday to ascer
tain the provisions of th< proposed ordinance to
amend Section 105 of the Building Code, in relation
to fireproof buildings. The offlc; of the clerk of
the aldermen closed at noon, and the architects
•were unable to get much .niorma.tion.
The proposed ordinance, which was Introduced
by Alderman Bridges, has received considerable un
favorable comment since its Introduction. At a
public hearing there was strong opposition. Fire
Chief Croker objecttac. and saying it would add
much .the danger in tall buildings. The proposed
ordinance would make it compulsory to have wood
covered with metal In all buildings over m feet
In height or twelve stories high. The interior cf
this rmtal covering, the ordinance allows, can be
of the most Inflammable material, if the builders
£O wish. Fireproof wood is eliminated by the ordi
nance. Mr. llnrdliig. in speaking about the ordi
nance, said: ■ '."''■■'. . '.
In all my experience as an architect in this city
I never knew o: a more dangerous amendment
bf-ing proposed. I have drawn plane for a Dumber
of building? and hotels in this city, and always ad
vocated ftreproofed wood, as l»eiier than another
sort of fireproof material. I have been informed,
and am certain Urn information is corre.-t, that
Edward Atkinson, of Boston, the Filipino agitator,
is back of this proposed amendment, and that it
was through his efforts that It was introduced. No
one claims ti.;it the so-calierl Areproofed wood is
absolutely fireproof, and neither are iron or stone;
but 1 claim, and can prove, that it i- absolutely
fire-resisting. I think the wood Oreproofed by the
t-l^ctric process is the best thing that a builder
can get, to Insure him keeping his property Inta
forever from the ravages of lire. And this ordinance
intends ej-ecifically to do away with this wl^!.
Tf this ordinance shonld be passed and metal cov
ered wood used, it would be dangerous to life to
have an office, not Baying anything a!>out living.
in a high building. The thin metal covering which
would be osed would melt at a s!i?ht fire, and th 6
common wood underneath would immediately be
consumed. I trust that this ordinance will not pass,
and I will do all in my power to defeat it. I pro
pose, v.;th these gentlemen with me. to get tip a
petition of prominent architects and builders, whom
i am sure are oyj»'/*e(i to such an outrageous
scheme, to present to the Committee on Buildings.
I understand that there will be another hearing,
ar.d we will be present In full force to oppose, and
will have Fire Chief Crokcr with us u> rigt. the
rr. :• ■ r.
I think my contention that fireproof wood is bet
ter than wood covered with metal is proven by th«
tests at the if rhnentt ■ Institute of Technology
on Friday. These tests were conducted by Edward
Atkinson, who is back of this proposed amend
mtnt. and instead of showing to hi 3 satisfaction
that fireprooicd wood is not what is claimed, it
showed conclusively that it is. Common wood was
consumed in all instances, a.s it always is, but the
fireproofrd wood was only charred and was not
consumed. 1 do not see why this agitation over
the merits nr.d demerits of fire-proofed wood is
kept up any way. Of course there fire instances In
every kind of building material where there are In
ferior articles of tie value, There are undoubt
ed:-.- many kinds of fireproofed wood that are in
ferior, but in my experience, and I have had ■
great deaL the various woovis treated by the elec
tric process, have demonstrated that wood can b<*
rendered absolutely fire resistant, and be made of
unllmitri value in fireproof building material con
struction. The tests in Poston Friday prove this.
In two skyscrapers I drew i;lai:s for tiu-re have
been fires in the last year or two. In both cases
the fire consumed the furniture and other common
woodwork and perishable articles in the room In
which it started, but got no further, as the fire
proof wood wor.H not burn, and stopped it. One
fire occurred on one Saturday night, and was not
discovered i-'r.tl! Monday morning, when the room
was found '" be entirely burned out, as resard<--i
the office furniture.
In the opposite case, at a recent fire in a building
•which had no fireproofed wood, a slight fire in ono
room burned out rive niflr-ts before it could be ex
tinguished The woodwork of all sorts was con
sumed and the damage was heavy. The amount
of money sa^ed in the two tires In my building
more than made up for the extra charge of having
fireproofed wood. 1 certainly cannot agree wll i
Mr. Atkinson, of Massachusetts and Manila, who
has conducted the tests there, that there Is no good
in Oreproofed woods. H« is entirely mistaken, an.l
the experience of myeelf and many other archi
tects has shown this.
OVERCOMIXG TEIAB FLOODS.
Dallas. T«-.\.. Aug. There is no trouble from
floods in Texas now except in the extreme north
eastern part of the State, and most of that Is ex
pected to he overcome to-day or to-night. Thou
sands of acrrs of the Braeos Valley are said to
be still s-.ihmcrgc-d, but the waters are receding
rapidly. The Sahine Rlv»r Is four miles wide near
Tyler and two miles of the International and Great
Korthern tracks are under water between that city
and Mineola. The Cotton Belt line Is clear apain.
but it will be Sunday before the Texas Midland
between Terrrll and Qulnlan will he in use.
DAMAGE IN NORTH DAKOTA.

"The Dispatch" says: Lisbon was the centre of a
fearful hurricane and destructive hailstorm List

All windows on the north Side of buildings were
shattered by hail and the houses flooded by the
torrent of rain which fell. In Usbog hardly a
building t-scaped com* damage. Stock is scattered
and II ostsnlfs of chickens jiiid birds were kiile«t.
No person wai killed, although a few were Injured.

NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. SUNDAY. AUGUST 3. 1902.
TT"S A GREAT GAMEBAG, TOO.
DEVIJRY TO IXVADE EAST SIDE
SULLIVAN WOULD BETTER LOOK OUT!-
A WARNING TO INTERFERERS.
"Big Bill" Devery says there has been alto
gether too much interference by outsiders in his
fight for the leadership of the IXth Assembly Dis
trict, and if the busybodies are not careful he is
going to resent their prying and trouble making
tactics in no uncertain manner.
■I can manage my own affairs." said Devery iast
night, as he snapped his big jaws together, "an' I
won't stan' for no monkeyshines from people from
up State or outside the district. I want 'Harry*
Oxford, from 'Tim' Sullivan's district, to unner
stand that he's rot to mind his own bufine«s. an'
a certain other party from a certain place who
came up here on a cenain day an" said certain
things that certain other people don't like, had
better keep his nose out of this district, or a cer
tain Indlwldual that ain't more'n ten miles away
from here will start a fight in a certain other
district, I'm a-goin' to start a Devery association
among the Jews on the East Side next Tuesday.
Just as a openin' wedge."
"How about the story that you have formed a
combination with John C. Shcchan?" Devery was
asked.
••Not on your life!" he replied. "There ain't no
truth in that story at all. What d'you s'pose I'm
spendln' my money for? Do you think It's for the
benefit o' Shechan or Goodwin? The truth Is."
continued Devery. trowing confidential, "that Sheo
han an' Goodwin have formed an alliance to beat
me. They realize that if they fight me sir.giy
they're beaten. But It won't make no difference.
I'll get a.« many \otea as Sheehan an" Ooodwta
o n.'. ined."
If Devery decides to carry his fight into "Tim"
BuOrmn's district, the campaign will grow more
interesting as the primary election approaches.
Sullivan will have his hands full without Inviting
trouble from Devery. ar.d It would not surprlso
many if Sullivan should try to make pnsre with
the former Chief.
Devery says that his has been greatly annoyed by
two young men, who told him about a week a^o
that they proposed to publish a weekly newspaper
in the IXth Assembly District devoted to the in
terests of the ex-Cr.lef, ar.d that It was their irs-
U'xtlon to call it "The Pump Journal."
"1 want to a6k the public not to patronize this
■hast in any form, shape or manner," said the
"Big Chief ■ ddedly last night, "f ain't got
nothin' to do with the sheet, and don't propose to
mix up with it. I kin fight n.y o\Vn baiti< an'
don't need any o' tnat Kind o' help. These fel
lers have been usln' my name wi::. any
authority."
Devery announced that hf had appointed Dr. M.
F. .J. Connolly, of No. 304 Seveatn-ave., and Dr.
Inslee H. Berry, of Ko. 166 West Tweaty-second
bi , to look after the physical welfare of I i« siclc
babies in the IXth District. The doctors will
set aside a few hours each day when tha poor
sick may call at their offices, and will <:sii upon
the cases designated by the Devery relief com
mittee. The committee w«s hard at work last
i.i-'tit in the rooms of the William S. D^v.-ry As
sociation. Eightn-ave., near Twcnty-thirtl-si. Early
in the sventeg a score or more of women, some of
them with young Infants in their arm.-, appeared
at the rooms. The system used in discriminating
between the deserving and the. others was insti
tuted by Mr. Devery himself. Peter Garvey takes
his pl.'tce at the desk, pen In hand, while •'Ediilc''
Schneider does the questioning. Mr. Schneider
takes the name of each woman in turn, and
j.rjml?<s to investigate her case. If the la bonesi
lookinr and has a baby in her arms, he walks
three or four pace* toward Garvey. This is a
signal which prompts Garvey to take the name,
address and other particulars regarding the appli
cani and enter them In hia book. If Mr. Schneider
has the least doubt of the accuracy of the woman's
statement, a wink is patiscd to a hanger on, who
follows the woman to her home. li the address
given is found to be correct, it is "O. Kd In
Garvey's book, and th" woman's wants are cared
f °Deverv was asked what he thought of the re
port that Richard Croker intended buying a house
in London. , .
"O a change o' luck causes many a change o
he.irt " replied Devery. "1 *e« one of his horses
won a race to-day, i wonder how that happened.
Tne other horses must have started the wrong
way Most o1o 1 " roker horses have been winning
the ' ill-end stakes for him.

Southampton. N- V.. Aug. 2.— Yesterday after
noon the body of a man was discovered in the
surf off Sag Harbor, and brought to land by
Harry Palmer, bathing master of that place.
It was badly decomposed, head gone, hands off.
trunk scarcely holding clothes together. It
must have been in the water many weeks,
though the beachmen are uncertain how long.
The body was clothed in white duck trousers,
shirt and socks. In the pockets were found
some bass fishing tacle and a soup advertise
ment. There -.vas no clew to Identification. The
Mecox life saving station's captain was informed
of the rescue, and brought the body to the sta
tion. The coroner of Bridßehaminon gave the
permit for burial.
At about the same time that the body was
discovered at Sag Harbor a considerable amount
of wreckage from the schooner Druid of Thomas
ton, Me., came ashore just west of the Mecox
life saving station. All that was leit of the
wreck was the cabin. This had been seen float
ing off Walnscott. where two fishermen rescued
from it a bookcase containing thirty-five books,
a rubber jacket and a foghorn. Among these
books was a medical work, on the flyleaf of
which was written the I'ame. Captain John F.
Cook. The cabin came ashore near Mecox sta
tion, and was rapidly broken up by the surf.
The only additional thing discovered in the
cabin was the logbook. This was ir. bad condi
tion. The last entry, however, dated July 7.
was preserved intact. The names of the crew
are not given in the- log.
The Druid was a two masted schooner of 102
tons, built at Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, in 1883.
She was registered from Thomaston, Me., and
was owned by A. Levensaler. Her captain, so
far as can be learned, was John F. Cook. The
cause nf ber destruction is not known. It is
maintained by the life saving crew that there
Is no connection between the wreck of th«»
Druid and the body that was washed ashore
at Sag Harbor yesterday afternoon-

THE PASSING THRON(i.
The days have passed when to call Chicago a
great seaport used to start a smile, and New-York
is frequently told to look to its
LOADING prestige in shipping. "All through
COAL IN the lake ports," said Walter 3.
CLEVELAND. Judson. at the Manhattan yester
day. "I have been iiapressed with
the enterprise shown in shipping. 1 don't see any
thing like it here. When I was in Cleveland I was
especially struck with what I saw. We don't have
much shipping to speak of. you know, in Denver,
and perhaps th«se things impress me more. But
compare the way a vessel is loaded with coal here
and in Cleveland. One of two things Is done here—
either they run lighters alongside of the ship and
put th#» coal In by the bag or they draw up
alongside of a wharf and turn m the coal
by endless chain buckets. Now. in Cleveland
the ship Is run in at a coal dooK. A
spur of railroad track extends down the
wharf so that cars of coal can be run direct to
the boat. And then. Instead of taking the coal out
ol the car by some means and transferring ; it to
rL ship, the car is simply lifted bodily by a Brown
hoisting machine and upset. All the coal is dumped
out at one swoop into the funnel of a chute, ami
down the hold of the boat. The car Is run back off
the platform, and then another is run down and
dumped. The dumping is effected hy securing the
car quickly with chains so that it can *St™raed
upside down on its long axis and the contents
Doured out I have ctcod on a dock there and
timed the operation, and 1 found that it took on
anat-erale about two minutes and forty seconds to
run a car down, .secure It. dump It and send it
back. It requires one man to manage the ca.s to
break them as they come down the incline, an.l
one man to engineer the hoisting engine^ f>> ™*
New-York method a carload consumes about forty
mfnutes at™east. and from three to four .men are
required to shovel tha coal nto the buckets. An
endless bucket chain won't clean out. a car. It has
to be shovelled. A trainioad can b« turned imo a
vessel in Cleveland in the time spent on a carload
here."
