DAILY REPORTS FROM SUMMER RESORTS OF WESTCHESTER, NEW-JERSEY AND LONG ISLAND
POOR SERVICE IN WESTCHESTER
STREET RAILWAY FACILITIES SO BAD THAT ACCIDENTS
FREQUENTLY OCCUR AND THIEVES THRIVE

DKION COMPANY WANTS MORE DOUBLE TRACKS.

it« fAci"ti. - are woefttfly inadequate to namiie
Z bfg rShes £** occur on the S«™^. Sun
day, and holidays of the warm summer months.
The citizens along the lines have hold mass meet
ings, written innumerable communications to the
local newspapers, and some of the more worldl>
££ stored and sworn, but the agitation seems to
have had no effect. ,
It was generally supposed by many people that
the company so thoroughly controlled the authori
ties in the towns and cities in Westchester County
that the only relief that could come would be
through the State Railroad Commissioners, but a
statement made yesterday by the president of the
road. Edward A. Maher. puts a different light on
this. Mr. Maker hi spending the summer at the
Victoria Hotel, in Larchmont. He says that bis
company has been hampered by the local authori
ties and that if it could get the franchises it was
seeking it could double track it* road and make
many loops In West Chester County which would
greatly relieve the congestion at Mount Verr.on.
Yonker?. New-Rochelle. Glen Island and other
points. Mr. Maher says that plans are under way
to build some cf the loops and additional tracks
•where franchises have been granted, and that the
company Is about to make application for addi
tional routes in Mount Vernon. Pelham Manor and
GREAT CROWDS VISIT THESE SUBURBS.
The cheap five cent fare that the company offers
Js the means of inducing an enormously increasing
number of people to visit Westchester County. The
ran. are usually well filled at the beginning of the
trips at One-hundred-and-twenty-ninth-st. and be
fore they are beyond the limits of The Bronx all of
the seats and aisles are jammed with people. In
this uncomfortable position the passengers ride to
Mount Vernon. where they chasm cars for New-
Rochelle. In New-Rochelle there Is another change
"or Glen Island. Hudson Park or Larchmont and
the beaches at Rye and Oakland.
The crowding and Inconvenience of changing cars
to many times on the way to the resorts and
beaches Is not to be compared with the big rashes
•which occur in the evening. On going out from the
■city In the morning tile people are generally rested
and filled with anticipations of pleasure and they
do not mind being squeezed a little or shunted
about. It is when the crowds are coming back
home, tired out that the exciting scenes are to be
witnessed at Glen Island. New-Rochelle. Mount
Vernon and other congested terminal points. The
crush resembles that at the entrance to the Brook
lyn Bridge. If anything. it Is worse, because people
sometimes have to wait for hours before they can
■obtain a seat in the cars for the long ride back to
There has bees) scarcely a Sunday or a holiday
this summer that some one has not been Injured by
being dragged and trampled on in the mad rushes
■to obtain seats. In several instances in Mount
j Vernon. where the jam is the greatest, people have
been hurt so badly that they have been taken to
: the hospital, and the court calendars of Westches
ter County are filled with damage suits against the
company." In the rush of Sunday of last week a
boy was knocked down in First-st . in Mount
Verncn. and had his teeth kicked down his throat.
On the same day a woman feU on the back of her
head and was carried unconscious into a nearby
••building. Other women caught In the rushes have
been squeezed and trampled upon until they have
fainted and fallen unconscious In the streets.
-CHANGE CARS" RESPONSIBLE FOR JAM.
The blame for the crushes In Mount Vernon and
New-Rochelle is undoubtedly with Che system of
dumping every one out of the cars In those cities
and compelling them to change, instead of running
through cars from One-hundred-and-twenty-nlnth-
Ft. to Glen Island. Larchmont. Hastings and other
ends of the road. The people are not familiar
with th« routes, and the changes confuse them.
It is a frequent sight in First-st., In Mount Ver
non, to see a crowd of a hundred or more people.
■women and small children included, running wildly
through the streets, clinging to the moving cars
In their eagerness to get seats. While the crowd
Is struggling to get out of the cars the other in the
Ftr<=et is fighting to get in. Women without es
corts or with children to watch over have bo
chance whatever to get seats bo these rush hours.
They are brushed aside and trampiod on by men.
-r.nd are usually compelled to sit on the steps of
,onx> of the neighboring buildings until the crowd
thins out. which may not be for several hours. This
was th» condition last summer, but, fortunately,
this year the weather has been cool, and the crowds
have been smaller. On the few hot days this year,
however, the jamming has been greater than ever
before, showing what Is bound to occur If the
•weather warms up in August and September.
The confusion In Mount Vernon is so great that it
requires almost half of the police of the city to
keep the people from being killed and to look out
for pickpockets, who Infest the overcrowded cars.
What surprises every one is that there is not
Tome one killed every Sunday.
An idea of the harvest reaped In these rushes by
"pickpockets rr.ay bo. had from an incident which
happened at West Farms, and which was told to a
Tribune reporter by an employe of th.; company.
One Sunday late last summer the waste pipe in
the toilet room at West Farms trolley station be
came clogged, and a plumber went to repair It. The
man removed sixteen empty purses and wallets
which had been choking the pipe. They had been
■rifled and thrown into the sinks by pickpocket?.
SINGLE TRACKS GREAT DRAWBACK.
Mr. Maher says in defence of the overcrowding
that It is no worse than it is at Corey Island or on
Broadway in the rush hours. lie says that the
principal difficulty the company has to . contend
with is that it has only a single track in most
j*ns of Westchester County. If it had double
tracks between Mount Vernon, New-Rochelle and
Yonkers. he says, it could maintain a much bet
ter schedule, although he thinks there will always
■be some crowding on Sunday, as on that day and
on holidays every one rushes to the country.
Mr. Maher continued: "Our company is willing
«nd anxious to double track every foot of the lines
It owns, and would do so at once if it could get
the necessary * franchises. One of the first exten
sions the company will endeavor to complete will
be the continuation of the Webster-aye. line, which
now runs to Woodlawn. in The Bronx, to West
Mount Verr.on and Yonkers. This line connects
•with the Manhattan elevated road at Fordham, and
that company has promised to add more express
trains to accommodate the Increased traffic from
Mount Vernon and Yonkers as soon as we can
make the connection. The only franchise we shall
require for this line will be permission from the city
of Mount Vernon to lay an additional track on
Mount Vernon-ave. We expect to make tne armii
cation for the additional track In a few days inn
If it is granted we shall have the line running: tv
September- The company will also make an nil ra
tion for a loop In Mount Vernon up First-st to th.
Flrst-av«. bridge. thence, across the bridge' to the
intersection of Park and Prospect ayes and
thence to North Fourth-aye., to connect with a
line 110 In operation there. This will give us a
circle In Mount Vernon like the street railways
have in Fountain Square, Cincinnati, and we will
ran } . cars around it, instead of having them
Hand in Flrst-st. We also expect to have better
terminal facilities and waiting room*." r
i\L!J*.v * conj P * ny Plan in contemplation "
asked the reporter, "for the relief of the con*e«
lion at N-w-fiocbelle and Glen Wand'" con
-W>*.r.- promised an extension of our fra:i
ch^e in Pelham Manor." continued Mr. Maher.
-which, if granted, would enable us to run car«
cirectljr to and from those places without having
to take them around by the way of Mount Ver
r.on- This rout*, which is greatly desired by th»
•omuanv. would form a double track continuation
of its double track line beginning at the red church
on the Boston Turnpike to Briggs-ave. in The
Bronx and across Brlggs-ave. to Webster-aye..
where the cars would be run down to the Fordham
elevated station. The company has all of the
necessary franchises for this route except for the
short distance between Pelham Manor and East
Cheater, on the Boston Turnpike. The company
was promised this extension when it built the road
through Pelham Manor, provided it would cam
out all of its agreements with the village. We
have carried out every agreement to the letter, but
owing to the opposition of some of the residents of
the Manor the granting of this franchise, less than
a mile In length, has been held in abeyance. The
building of this line, we are quite sure, will solve
the question of trolley facilities for Xew-Rochelle.
MAYOR FISKE HAS STUDIED PROBLEM.
Mayor Edwin W. Fiske of Mount Vernon was
asked what steps, if any. the city authorities had
taken to remedy the overcrowding of the cars, and
"Something ought to be done, that Is certain. I
have given the question a ETeat deal of study and
you may say for me that I have a remedy in view
which will help matters a great deal."
The Mayor would not say what his remedy was.
He said it would be made public in a few days and
that he expected that it would meet with public
In the mean while it is the opinion of many of
the people of «.-.-:• tiestei County that if the rail
road corporation and local authorities fall to act
promptly the situation is one which would justify
the State Railroad Commissioner in taking the
matter up and making an investigation with a
view of devising for the residents of the, large and
populous section lying above the Harlem River a
The rolling stock of the ••Huckleberry" railroad
in the opinion of many of Its patrons should also
be examined and cars with flat wheels and other
defects taken off. The roadbed is in bad condition
In many places and passengers arc badly jolted.
This condition is due to the recent practice 01 tne
company in running the heavy Metropolitan Ex
press cars, over its lines. These cars weigh almost
three times as much as an ordinary passenger car
and they have put the rails and switches out of
WESTCHESTER SUMMER RESORTS.
FANCY PRESS BALL AT LARCHMONT-AU
TOMOBILING MAKES T.'P FOR THE
EXODUS OF YACHTS.
A night of revelry and fun was enjoyed Saturday
evening In Larchmont on the. occasion of the fancy
dress and masquerade dance at the Bevan House.
The dance, which is one of the annual summer
amusement features of Larchmont, was attended
by nearly a thousand hotel patrons, cottagers and
yachtsmen from the summer resorts and clubs on
Long Island Sound. They came in yachts, automo
biles. stages. Illuminated trolley cars and all kinds
of fancy turnouts, and were so numerous that
they completely filled the ballroom and the piazzas
and left but small space for the dance.
The opening march began at 10 o'clock, and was
led by H. Tuthill Spence. Mr. Spence wore plain
evening clothes, but the rest of the marchers, num
bering about one hundred, were attired in all man
ner of grotesque costumes. The young men were
dressed as sailor laddies, yachtsmen, army officers,
chauffeurs, coons, ranchmen. Rough Riders, Arabs,
monks, Highlanders. Chinamen, chefs, waiters and
messenger boys. Two of them, representing Uncle
Sam and Mephistopheles. were most striking in
their make up. Gay costumes were also worn by
the young . women marchers, who represented
"Florodora" girls, ballet girls, bicycle girls and
Swiss mountain sing :a. There was also an assort
ment of pretty college girls wearing their mortar
boards and gowns. Salvation Army lasses carrying'
bundles of "The War Cry." colored cooks, chamber
maids and washerwomen. One of the fair dancers,
who was dressed as a .-tout Irish washerwoman,
caused much laughter by shouting. "Who threw
their overalls in Mrs. Murphy's chowder!" The
masked dancers circled around the hall several
times, and were then joined by th» other dancers
in regular evening costume, of which there ■were
about two hundred couples. Among the dancers
were many graceful and magnificently gowned

BAD VT FATHER AT LAKE HOPATCOXG
STORM RUINS SUNDAY EXCURSIONS AND OUTING
Lake Hopatconjr. N. J.. Aug. 3 (Special).— A small
party of people came down the lake yesterday to
the station to say goodby to James Haskell, of
New-York, who had braved the storms of two
weeks In a skiff and fished with the earnestness of
a Nantucket whaler. Mr. Haskell had with him a
basket of bass and pickerel, and he said he would
think of the friends and good times he had at Ho
patcong when they sizzled In the pan.
This has been a gloomy day. It rained before
noon, and everybody remained indoors, like the pro
verbial wet hen. Along shore the camps assumed
a melancholy appearance, and their occupants
seemed to be singing "Walt till the clouds roll by,
A party from New-York came tip to spend the
day with Mr. and Mrs. Stevens, near River Styx.
They were met by the launch at Landing, and, with
curtains drawn, galled up the stormbound lake.
Two young women were rowed from one of the
camps to the station and were caught in the rain.
When they reached terra llrma they looked like a
pair of Coney Island bathers Just out of the brine.
Early in the. morning John Ducker and Frank
Barrow, of Flatbush took a shy at the fish and
had the good fortune to land five pickerel. They
fished above Nolan's Point.
The Jersey Central's excursion was not a suc
cess any further than from a railroad standpoint,
and those that made the trip wished they had, re
mained at home.

beach and enjoyed a bath in the sea. Just before
noon a terrific thunderstorm burst over the resort,
and in five minutes the beach was deserted The
Btorm. which was accompanied by the heaviest rain
of the summer, raged for over three hours, and
when the deluge ceased everything on and about
the beach was much too moist for comfort, so ih*
visitors kept to their hotels during the best part of
the afternoon. It cleared off. however, in time for

Atlantic City. N. J.. Aug. 3.-Tidal wave or no
tidal wave, there was never such a large crowd of
people in this resort as there was to-day and
yesterday It seemed to have literally rained hu
man beings, and the Island seemed to be more in
danger from a human tidal wave than from any
other sort. Every train that came into the depots
was run in either two or three sections, and some
of them as high a* four, and In every one of them
people were compelled to stand up It was the
Lgest crowd for two days in the history of At
antic City, and sweep* away any doubt about
whether or not this season Is as great as that of
the previous years.
It is estimated that in the two days nearly one
hundred thousand people were landed on this Island
by the two railroads, and It was a serious question

Furniture for New York's Millions
The Kinds That Are Made for Best Retail Trade
At Prices That Meet the Most Moderate Means
This great intrust Trade Sale of Furniture is an important occasion in the domestic econ
omy of the g households and prospective households of Greater New } ork.. and^r several
hundred miles around. Even twenty dollars' worth of distance in car-fares is a small matter
of expense in order to come to Wanamaker's to invest a hundred dollars or more in new itir
niture. Not only will the average gain be fifty dollars more of furniture value than even our
regular low prices give; but you will be able to select from the broadest and completed stock
of furniture that can be found anywhere. ?. --
And if it nays people to come several hundred miles to buy now how great are its advantages to housekeepers
here at home, Aether the purchase in prospect is a new Chair, a new Sideboard, or a compfeta ho l l^\Z^Tm^
An outsider cannot realize what labor, skill, and mastery of trade .conditions are neces ar> to o l^ a mov
ment such as this, else these vast stocks of hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of iurniture would be claimed in a
ll;i - oorl rr ° months our experts must watch the markets and keep in touch with manufacturers ; and as i opportunity
occurs, claim concessions on fine goods for this great occasion of yours and ours. For we do not gather here the goods
that seek sale on the open market Such goods must seek an outlet elsewhere. . ,
The Wanamaker Sale presents furniture of a totally different character. Manufacturers with whom we .vast
buying all rear round agree that we deserve large concessions on whatever regular lines or <roods they may nave, in
order to transpose the month of Midsummer dullness into the great furniture-buying time 01 the year.
The Furniture Is All of High Character.
The Styles are Latest and Most Popular.
The Variety Is Xo where Greater.
Every Sort of Furniture Is Included.
More Fine Goods Than Ever Are Under-Price.
The Low-Priced Goods Are Better Than Ever.
The Savings Are Large and Positive. n _ .
Yon May Buy Now and Deliveries Will Be Made Later On as You Desire.
If yon have furnishing plans for the coming Fall— you have the instinct of thrift— if you care to secure a half
more of value in furniture than you dare ordinarily hope for in the most reasonable store— if you care to select from
one of the best collections of furniture ever gathered anywhere, you will visit Jlanamakers today, certainly this weeK,
whether you have one block, one mile or a hundred miles or more to come.
The details tell as much as they can, and that is little enough. The larger or value-prices compared below, are
actual selling prices of these goods as they would need To be sold in our stocks except for this August bale. Many are
actual reductions from our own stocks. You save every dollar— every cent of which the figures tell.

TAGERS IX CHURCH.
Long Branch. N. J.. Aug. 3 (Special).-For two
full hours the rain just came down in bucketfuis.
People at church were compelled to wait for an
hour or more after service before they could get
home. Streets were flooded for a time, and a gen
eral deluge swept the coast.
Perhaps the most interesting church service ever
held in St. Luke's Methodist Episcopal edifice took
place in spite of the storm, when 125 probationers
were received Into full membership. A number of
cottagers was present to witness the service. At
the big revival last winter nearly two hundred
and fifty converts were made. This iroming s in
gathering was the first of that large army of con
verts to ba received Into full membership. The
pastor. Dr. Handler, delivered a sermon appro
priate to the occasion, and at the conclusion of
the service the congregation, which numbered over
eeven hundred, joined In a song service until the
rain stopped. ,
The cottagers at Seabrlght threaten to organize
a water company. The present water monopoly
has more than doubled its rates during the last
month, and the cottager who stays at the S p^ h t*e
three or four months In the year has to pay toe
same rate as the all->ear resident. st ths home

Greenwood Lake. N. J.. Aug. 3 (Special).— The stat

Last evening there was quite an outpouring of the
lovers of dancing at the Brandon House, and th»
Saturday night hop, as it is termed, was an enter
taining affair. Things did not move in fhe leaat bit
slow at Waterstone cottage, where Mr. Doiane
