STRIKERS USE DYXAMITE.
Attempt Made on Mine Superin
"Wheeling, W. Va., Aug. 14. -An attempt was
made by unknown persons at an early hour this
morning to kill F. M, Horcher, superintendent
of the Austen Coal and Coke Company, and his
family by blowing up their home, at Austen,
witih dynamite. The charge vas placed on the
froi-jt porch, directly under the room in which
the family wwre eleeplnp.
The explosive tore a large hole- through tho
floor and dug a hole in the ground several feet
below.. The 3amlly escaped Injury, except the
baby, which w*a thrown out of bed by the force
of the explosion, and sustained" slight bruises.
Suspicion points to miners, who have been
on stride since the first of June last, when the
company ordered a reduction in wages, which
the men refused to accept. The striking men
were allowed to remain in the company houses
for a tLme In the hope that they would return
to work, and last week the company took legal
action to get possession of their houses, which
must be vacated next Wednesday.
Threats have been made at various times by
th» strikers to dynamite all who went to work,
and for this reason an injunction was obtained
from the United States court some months ago
restraining the strikers from interfering with
the working of '.he mines.

A NEW BIG CONEY PARK.
This One Will Hare a Txco Mile
Flying Machine Trip.
Announcement was made yesterday of another
amusement enterprise at Coney Island tor next
summer which has several novel features. It will
be called Ae*-lal Park, and extend from Surf-aye.
back almost to Ulmer Park, if the proposed r>l*ns
are carried out.
Among- the features will be a flying machine
trip of two miles around a circular course over
the meadows. It was said that the trip would bo
made in a balloon copied after the models of San
tos-Dumont. the Brazilian aeronaut. The flying
machine will carry Its own motors, but will get Its
power from the earth by meajis of long cables
reaching from a motor car running on an elevated
track up to tho ship in the air. The cables will
also serve as anchors to the ship to prevent its
flying too high.
A bicycle roller coaster will make a two mile trip
over the meadows to Ulmer Park and back.
W. W. Doty, of No. Si 3 Forty-seventh-st., Brook
lyn, the president of the Aaeriul Amusement Cora
far, v, told a Tribune reporter last evening that the
company would invest about $300,000 in the enter
prise. He declined to give the name* of the pro
moters, but said they were retired merchants and
bankers. Mr. Doty said:
We have everything ready to begin work. The
only thing: we are waiting en is for the close of
the season at the Island. We are going to build
over the present terminal of the West End.
Thirty-nirtth-st.. and Nassau Railroad lines. The
property where our main building will be is owned
by the Brooklyn Rapid Transit. Wo had to lease
their property in order to get an entrance on Surf
ave., and, in order to get the I«are. we had to
give them terminal privileges. That, of course
will be an advantage to us, as it will put the bulk
of the passengers riffht in our midst. We will put
up a big building at the corner of Surf and Still
well aye.«. From Surf-aye. the main part of
this building will run back 213 feet with a front
age of ninety feet. For that distance back it will
be three stories high, with a roof garden. Back of
that the building will run 200 feet, with a width
of nearly 280 feel In the rear part will be the
restaurant, bars, cigar stand and like features.
The roof garden is to lip the mr<i!i show place.
There we will give vaudeville In summer, and will
have a garden fairyland that will lie the best
place in the Island to get a view of the ocean and
Coney Island has not been a winter resort, but
It is rapidly becoming popular in other than the
summer months. We propose to make it a winter
resort. On the floor beneath the roof we will have
a theatre, where we will give vaudeville all
through the winter, with dancing in the ballroom
The Brooklyn Rapid Transit i« not financially
interested in our park, but simply ha/ the iistr^e
merit with us by which it will use our building
as its terminal. We propose to have the finest
restaurant in all New-York, excepting none. There
will '■ a second restaurant on the top of th.
electric tower. Around this restaurant will h<-
balconies, 366 (net above ground, where our guests
may fit out and eat their dinner?.

NO FRAUD, DESPITE THE DIVORCE.
Referee Refuses to Annul Marriage of !
Es-Judee Francis Child, of Newark. Pitting an
a Chancery Court referee, ha* filed in Trenton
a report in which he decides against Lena Bot-li*. j
of No. 147 Blxteenth-ave.. Newark. In a suit which I
she brought for Jha annulment of h«ir marrlago
to William Hanger. She allseed that he was guilty ,
of fraud in inducing her to marry him without '
telling nor that he was a divorced man. and that j
bla first wife was still living, en.l that tho mar- I
riage therefore was not binding, as such unioriH i
are forbidden by the Roman Catholic Church, of '
which she «_iWotyf, ha« been a member. ,
While not touching directly on the point, the I
report of Referee Child practically declares law- '
yers Bay, that state and church law must bo '
separated lit their application to marriages and
that tho union of the complainant and defendant
was a legal one. It is proposed by W. J. Kearn*
counsel tor Mlr« Boehß. to take th matter Im
mediately before Chancellor Muffle on an appeal
to get hie personal opinion, us the point Involved
has never been raised in New-Jersey before.
Misd Bochs and Hanger were married in Newark
by a Justice of the peace In 1301. about a month
after the mar; hal been divorced from Owrgiana
Benedict They lived together about a year and
then the e*eond wife discovered that the "first wife •
was alive. She at once left Hansrer and has not i
sine* lived with him, declaring that she was ad- !
vised by the authorities of her church to retard
th» marriage as void.
Several witnesses. Including a Catholic priest, i
testified to the fraud practised on her, and to her I
subsequent status Id her Church. In his decision i
however, ex-Judge Child declares that "in my
opinion the fraud practised by the defendant upon
the complainant In allogltig that he had never
been married before Is not cufflcient ground for the
anulment of the marriage. I further report than
in my opinion the said marriage between the said
defendant and the said complainant was a lawful
marriage, end thnt the prayer of the «aid com
plainant to have the said marriage declared null
and void should not be granted." I

the last two weeks, you would marvel that there could be any furniture left on our floors; and, if it were not
for the constantly coming supplies, our floors would have been swept clean many times already. But past
experience has taught us how largely to prepare fur this August movement, and we have timed the arrivals
of the furniture so that fresh, new carloads are constantly taking the place of what is sold.
There is not a vacant spot on our furniture floor ] able space today; and the special word is confined to
this morning. The new and handsome furniture fills the superb showing of Parlor Furniture; which,

The Month Ahead Sale of FINE SILKS
The fact that we fire able to offer you $53,000 worth of Silks
for $36,000 is sufficient apology for this Agu&t movement. Of
course, it is a month ahead of the time that you will be fully
ready to buy your silks, perhaps; but a month later our stocks will
be so crowded with other goods that we could not make room for
these silks to sell them at these little prices. The ordinarily quiet
u<onth of August gives us the opportunity to bring in and handle
the 60,000 yard's we have been able to secure for this occasion.
