To Start Across the Pacific To-mor
San Francisco. July s.— Fresh from' dry docks,
with bunkers full of coal nad magazines fined with
ammunition, newly painted and looking as spick
and span as the day they left Hampton Roads, the
sixteen battleships of the Atlantic fleet are riding
at anchor to-day In the harbor, ready to sail on
Tuesday for Honolulu on the second half of the
long cruise around' the world.
• At 2 ( o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, two months
and a day after it entered the portals of the Golden
Gate, at the end of a 13.00rv-mile voyage, the flower
of the American navy. h«aded by the flag-ship Con
necticut, will steam out of the harbor of San
Francisco, under the command of Rear Admiral C.
S. Sperry. the third commander in chief since the
fleet started on the long cruise.
The fleet will reach Honolulu on July 1«. remain
& week and then proceed to the Antipodes. Elab
orate preparations for its entertainment have been
made at Auckland. Sydney and Melbourne. The
fleet will reach Manila after a visit to Japanese
ports about October 1. Before returning to Hamp
ton Roads, in the latter part of February, fourteen
months after starting from the Atlantic, the fleet
will have sailed nearly. all the seas on the globe
and completed the most remarkable cruise in naval
The reassembling of the Atlantic fleet began more
than a week ago. and the Kearsarge. which finished
loading ammunition at the Mare Island Navy Yard
yesterday, was the last to drop anchor In her

then complete on only a few of the ships, is now
thoroughly installed on each one.
The places of the Alabama and the Maine, which
came around South America with the ' fleet and
which sailed from here on June B, homeward
bound, as a special service squadron, have been
taken by the battleships "Wisconsin and Nebraska.
Captain R Morrell. of the Wisconsin, has been re

San Diego. Cal.. July 6.— Three torpedo boat de
stroyers, the Perry, the Preble and the Farrajrut,
were towed the entire distance from San F-an
dsco to this port by the cruisers of the Pacific
squadron, -which arrived here last night. Consid
erable trouble was experienced with the tow lines,
although the sea was comparatively calm all the
time. The tow line of the Preble broke four times,
two of the breaks occurring In quick succession.
After the fourth break a big wire cable was used
in place of the hawser chain, whirh had previously

HOW F. G. BAILEY ESCAPED
Other Prisoners Who Were on the
iUtstein in New Orleans.
' »tr Orleans, July s.— With two high power auto
mobiles, several United States deputy marshals
and a squad of reporters awaiting them at the
wharf. Lieutenant Peter W. Beery, of the New
York Police Department, with his prisoners. Al
bert Bailey. Charles H. Myers and Captain Albert
Oxley, arrived her* from Puerto Cortez. Hon
duras, on the steamer Utstein Just before dark
to-night. Police, prisoners, marshals and re*
porters piled into the big touring cars and were
whisked away to the Orleans parish prison. After
being fed at the parish prison. Lieutenant Berry
■with his prisoners left New Orleans shortly before
8 o'clock to-night for New York, where, they will
arrive Tuesday afternoon. Berry is the only officer
with the prisoners.
Francis G. Bailey, the missing prisoner, made
Ml escape on July 2 while the Utstein was in the
harbor of Puerto Cortez, Honduras. Members of
the crew, in relating to-day the story of Bailey's
escape,, Bald that the watch had gone below for a
piece of bread, when Bailey managed to launch
one of the steamer's small boats and pull ashore,
where he escaped in the woods before a pursuing
party in another boat could make a landing. The
Baileys are wanted on the cnarge of conspiracy
to use. the mails of the United States to defraud.
Francis G. Bailey was president of the Export
Shipping Company of New Jersey, while Albert W.
Bailey was secretary of the concern.
When asked for an account of the- escape of Mr.
Bailey Lieutenant Beery said: "We have decided
to confine our statement to the simple fact that
we had a pleasant voyage through the Gulf."
The details of Francis Bailey's escape were not
ruppr«**ed. however, for the crew had a story to
tell. According to the crew. Lieutenant Beery was
repeatedly warned against the probability that his
prisoners would make an attempt to escape, but.
in spite of this, he took the manacles off of them,
and the same night Francis G. Bailey escaped.
Lieutenant Beery had gone ashore to an .enter
tainment given by some Americans. When he
returned he went below and to sleep, asking an
officer on the steamer to guard his prisoners. Fran
cis G. Bailey was on the deck of the steamer at
the time, which was early on the morning of July l.
The officer who was asked to guard him discov
ered before daylight that Bailey had disappeared
and that the skiff tied to the stern of the steamer
was also gone, It «m still dark, but the outline
of the skiff could be made out several hundred
yards off. The lifeboat was immediately lowered
when the alarm was given and started in the di
rection of the disappearing- skiff, but it could not
The United States <~onsul at Puerto Cortez was
mformed. and he Immediately enlisted the aid of
the Honduran a'lthoritie*:. -who made a thorough
search of the. essntiy surrounding Puerto Cortez.
Only the empty skiff was found.
A coincidence in connection with the escape
■which wa? made the subject of an investigation
-was the fact that on the same night Francis G
Bailey escaped a series of shots were fired en
board the steamer Goldsboro, which the Baileys
had brought down from New York. When asked
for an explanation, those on the steamer said they
had been enjoying themselves that night and had
fired the shots for fun.
Correspondence sent to the New Orleans papers
from Puerto Cortez contained all of the evidence
presented against the Baileys when they were ex
tradited. According to this correspondence Francis
G Bailey is believed to have made his way into

surveyor had Inspected the twenty-one-ton auxili

"I'm glad to see you're not singling out us poor

"Come aboard and Inspect my boat now. Like you
to see all our equipment."
W. E. Ellsworth, the owner of the Kntherine.
after refusing to have his yacht put alongside the
customs boat, finally agreed on a compromise and
sent out a longboat to bring Mr. Coneys on board.
Mr. Ellsworth said he had come up from Florida,

the races, didn't want to come alongside the tug
for fear the racing shells would be Injured.
"I'll sue the government if anything happens
to those shells." he exclaimed from time to time
during the Inspection. The Helen R. was found
to be obeying all regulations, and pullod away
with the two racing shells Intact, the magistrate
at the same time cooling off visibly.
A number of pleasure boats Inspected were found
to have only one or two life preservers, with from
twelve to twenty persons on board. Heated objec

made no allowance for private boats, and that the
owners ought to welcome regulations which forced
them to provide protection for their families and

Pittsburg, July Practically all of the mills of
the Pittsburg district will be in operation again by
to-morrow, and before the week is over the district
will have returned almost to the normal conditions
which were interrupted by the financial cloud of
last October. Almost fifty thousand men in the
district who have been idle, for many months will
be called to work when the whistles blow to-mor
The Carnegie Steel Company, which has been
operating the Homestead. Edgar Thomson and
Duquesne plants on half time, will place these
mills on full time to-morrow morning, giving work
to several thousand men. The Jones & Laughlin
Steel Company will put one thousand additional
men to work to-morrow In their plant here, while
the National Tube Works will put as many addi

In the mining and coke districts several thou
sand men will get work. A remarkable condition
exist* in these districts. There Is actually a short
age of workmen, and operations are being ham
pered by Inability to secure sufficient men. Hun
dreds of foreigners went home last winter and
failed to return, and this has resulted in a great
shortage of unskilled labor.
That the railroads are feeling: the resumption of
business is shown by the fact that all the lines
making Plttaburg their headquarters have ordered

CELEBRATORS IN COURT
Some Magistrates Lenient, Oiherg
Severe — 132 Prisoners 'Arraigned.
When It came to dealing with those- arrested iMt
discharging firearms in the streets on the Fourth
of July the magistrates disagreed yesterday on
the way to treat the prisoners. In all. 133 prison
ers wer» arraigned in the magistrates' court« on
that chargp, most of them being between eighteen
and twenty years old and nearly all of foreign
birth. Magistrate Breen had thirty cases before
him in the Tombs court. Most of these were boy*
from sixteen to twenty years old. As soon as
they were arraigned they were discharged. The
weapons were confiscated.
Magistrate Crane, who on previous occasion*
had dealt severely with this class of offenders, sur
prised the polio*, by dismissing the twenty-six
prisoners brought before him. nearly all of them
grown men. The magistrate explained his leniency
by saying that he did not think it was wron£ to
celebrate by discharging blank cartridges from a
revolver in the street. He .said that on any other
day he would fine a man who had a revolver in
his possession, but thought that no harm had been
done by the men using their revolvers to celebrate,
the Fourth. i
Other magistrates were more severe. Of the
twelve prisoners taken before Magistrate Wahle.
one, who Bald he merely had discharged a toy cap
pistol, was fined $10. while the other eleven men
were held In $500 ball each for trial on a charge
of carrying concealed weapons. The man fined
was the only American-born citizen In the lot.
Magistrate Harris fined most of his fifteen prison
ers $5 each and the others HO each. They had
ball cartridges in their revolvers. Forty-nine men
were arraigned before Magistrate Hen-man In the
Harlem court, and all were fined from SI to JC each.
At the hospitals all the Internes had a much
needed rest. Two or three minor accidents re
sulting from left-over fireworks were treated.
Roderick Vazilio, of No. 282 East 149 th street,
threw his last giant cracker into the street early
in the morning. When It did not explode right
away he picked It up. Just before it exploded. Sur
geons at Lincoln Hospital say he may lose his
sight. Another Bronx lad. Joseph Stein, of No.
608 Oak Tree Place, shot off the tip of one finger
with a pistol.
A firecracker thrown under a. horse at Amster
dam avenue and ITSth street caused it to run away.
F. W. Williams, of No. 2V> West 105 th street, who
had been in the carriage with his wife, had Just
alighted with her when the firecracker went off.
At 145 th street the carriage was knocked to pieces,
and a few blocks further down even the shafts
dropped off. Two or three men In automobiles and
on motorcycles chased the animal, but he led the
pace to 125 th street. There he turned east, and *a
few feet further on dropped from exhaustion. He
had run four miles. A patrolman threw several
buckets or water on him and led him away to a
TBACISG BOMB OUTRAGES.
Petrosino Thinks He Can Hold
Italian on Several Charges.
"Joe" Perrosino and his Italian detectives spent
most of yesterday running down the loose ends of
their case against a Sicilian who. the- believe, was
the moving spirit In many of the recent East Side
bomb throw-Ings. The prisoner. Giuseppi Afflnito.
was he'd on a short affidavit made by Petrosino.
and Archiopoll, and this morning he will ho lined up
before every member of the Italian squad and his
history repeated to them.
Only one of the several charges on which Petro
sino says he can hold the man ■was made public
after he was arrested. This was the speofflc charge
made In the affidavit that Afflnito threw a bomb
into the' tenement house at No. 223 East 74th street
to intimidate a wealthy Italian in an attempt to
blackmail him. This affidavit was sworn to by a
man who, the police say. saw the bomb thrown.
The way In which this bomb and th» others were
constructed, the materials used and th« similarity
of the letters and threats received by the man
against whom this particular bomb wag directed
and those received lately by other wealthy Italians.
Indicated to the police that half a dozen of these.
outrages were the ■work of one man or set of men.
Afflnito will be arraigned this afternoon before
Afflr.ito is a fine type of the middle class of
Sicilian. He is about twenty-five years old. His
complexion is oiive and his eyes ar* set far back
under a high, receding forehead, surmounting a
bold, hawklike noae.
Magistrate Steinert held another man charged
with a bomb outrage In the Torkville court yester
day. This prisoner is Angelo Lupino. the charge
against him being that he placed the bomb which
wrecked the tenement house at No. 336 East 11th
street. Captain Shaw says that Lupino was pimply
th« tool of a gang of extortioners. He dn»s not
look like one who could be the moving spirit In
anything. He is undersized, weak looking and
PROSPECT PARK ARRESTS.
Sixty-two Prisoners Held for Violat
There were sixty arrests at Prospect Park.
Brooklyn, yesterday For the last month In
spector OReilly has been doing his best to aid
Park Commissioner Kennedy to preserve the park
from destruction at the hands of the East Siders,
who flock there by the thousands on Sundays. On
the three Sundays preceding yesterday an aggre
gate of 224 arrests were made, and most of the
prisoners were fined $10 by Magistrate Steers, In
the FlatbOßh police court. The magistrate is
earnestly co-operating with the police and the
park authorises in checking the outrages. When
seen yesterday he said:
"Early In the week I had a talk with a rabbi of
the East Side, and he promised to try to get the
Hebrew newspapers of his quarter of the city to
warn the people not to destroy the plants and do
other things which will lead to their arrest. It Is
a beautiful thing to pee th» people enjoying them
peives in the park, but in the thousands who go
there on Sundays there are bound to be some who
will not restrain themselves. The majority of the
Jews are a= anxious as I am that the violators of
the law should be punished. They do not want to
be classed with lawbreakers
"If proper evidence is brought forward I will
treat the offenders arrested to-day as I have those
in the past. I always let those persons go who
seem Innocent of an intention to do wrong."

closely acquainted with the relations existing
between the United States and Venezuela, that
this government had only deferred action from

The trip Itself was one of the finest sensation*

good breeze blowing steadily northeast through

just west of Lake Huron we had travelled at aa
average altitude of between 800 and 1,000 feet.
We did not put out our drop rope until about 3
o'clock in the morning, the night being illumi

darker the drag rope twice indicated that w«

to undertake th« crossing of Lake Huron and to
remain up until late in the evening. Th« ba*
stretched so much under the hot tan and shoe
to such a great altitude that we were compelled
to let out considerable gas. i •-- / - > \
That was our downfall, literally. We sailed
well into Canada at a 6.000 foot altitude, but
suddenly the bag began descending. Down to
3.000 feet the descent was .fairly - slow. Then

was sighted following our tracks. Through our

at 6:45 a. m reached Lake Huron, travelling ac
an altitude of 6.000 feet, due to expansion of gas
