BOY DROWNED AT BEAC
Intense Heat Drives Thousands
to the Seashore.
GIRL FALLS OFF JETTY
Saved by Nearby Swimmers,
Doctor Works an Hour to
One boy lost his life and half a dozen
othors had narrow escapes from drown
ing at the beaches yesterday afternoon.
Thousands were driven to the enore by
the intense heat in the city, which con
tinued with no diminution, and humidity
even more oppressive than on Sunday.
Achibald Elliott, of No.'4Jl 59th street,
Bay Ridge, one of several boys in
swimming at Bay Ridge, went into the
water with a pair of water wings under
his chest, and the swimming seemed so
good that he went out beyond his depth.
Suddenly he was seized with cramps
and started to struggle about in the
water, at the same time yelling for help.
As his companions started to swim tow
ard him the water wings floated away
and he went down. When he came to
the surface his friends took him to
shore. Dr. Carr, of the Norwegian Hos
pital, worked over him for more than
an hour, but finally had to give up the
fight. The boy's body was taken home
by the police of the Fort Hamilton sta
Louis De Falcon, of No. 191 Mott
street, went swimming off Thompson's
Walk, Coney Island, in the afternoon.
He pot out in deep water and was swim
ming back to shore when a cramp seized
him. He lost all power to move and
went under. Two friends who had ac
companied him to the beach swam out
after him and brought him ashore. Dr.
Lewis was called from the Coney Island
Hospital and he and De Falcon's friends
■worked over the young man for some
time. He was finally restored to con
sciousness and taken to the hospital, not
much the worse for his experience.
When Miss Mabel Evans reaced Coney
Island from Orange, X. J., her home,
yesterday morning, there was not much
to amuse her. and she wandered toward
! the ocean. After walking along the
beach for some time she decided to walk
out on a jetty which extended from the
end of Hendersons Walk about two hun
dred feet Into the water.
Miss Evans walked about halfway out
when she stepped pn a section of the
jetty made slippery by the waves. She
fell into the water, sank and then came
to the surface. She could swim a little,
but the weight of her clothing handi
capped her. and she finally became ex
hausted. She screamed for help, and her
cries were heard by three men who were
swimming near by. They got her to shore
and Dr. Lewis, of the Coney Island Hos
pital, worked with the three men for
more than an hour before Miss Evans
was out of danger. She was taken to
the hospital and will go home to-day.
At first the Coney Island police
thought that th<» young woman might
have tried to take her own life, but she
convinced them that her fa] 'ing into the
water was accidental.
Patrolman Clancy, of the Health
Squad, in Queens, rescued two small
children at Keil^y avenue, Kockaway
beach. In the afternoon, but didn't find
out who they were.
Clancy was Inspecting bathhouses,
when he saw two children wading. A
few minutes later the children were
swept from their feet t*v a wave, and
before they oouM pet up. were beyond
their depth, clinging to each other.
Clancy went in, dropping only his hel
i.iet as iie ran.
He got the children and started for
t-i."re. but a wave took all three under
fnd outward. Clancy is a strong
swimmer and started to kick shoreward.
A man nam^d Donohue started to aid
him. hut juFt then the mother went rac
ing across th«> beach and plunged in.
Donohue grabbed her as fhe was waist
deep and forced her back, and about
that time Clancy reached shoal water.
The woman threw her arms about
cianoys neck, after kissing and hug
pinp the children. She hailed the offi
cer as a hero, and the saver of her chil

NO RELIEF FROM HUMIDITY
Weather Bureau Cautious About
Predicting Anything Cool.
Although the official mercury when at
its highest point yesterday was threw de
i grees lower than on Sunday, eleven pros
trations from heat were reported. Six
victims of the summer's tardy heat wave
were in Brooklyn and five in Manhattan.
The humidity ranged from 43 to 49 per
cent, and indications were abundant
yesterday that the spongy air cushion
resting on the greater city would absorb
and absorb until the moisture taken up
dropped In the form of cooling rain. The
local weather bureau would not venture
an opinion yesterday on the possibility of
a storm. The best that Mr. Scarr would
offer in the weather line was the elastic
prophecy: "Generally fair on Tuesday."
Judging from reports, jersons suffered
moat yesterday. The office of the Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
declared last night that no herees were af
fected by the heat. It was hoped in the
forenoon that a promising: six-mile zephyr
from the northwest would "make some
cool somehow somewhere," but it didn't
pan out. The day began well with a tem
perature of (59 degrees above zero, but by
2 p. m., when ths mercury hovered at 84,
the comfort of the morning was forgotten.
Mr. Roosevelt did not land at the Bat
tery yesterday, but judging from the
crowds that sat tnere courting the feeble
zephyr from the west one might have
thought he had announced quietly another
trip south of Bowling Green.
The peanut supply of Battery Park was
short yesterday. In fact, it has been short
since Saturday, when the carts of the
Greek venders were scattered helter skelter
in the path of the storm. Either extensve
repairing of damaged ovens or a desire to
give a wide berth to th* orbit of the Bat- :
tery tornado comet has kept the original j
Greek peanut pedlers away from the park. j
NEAR DEATH IN ROOF TAIV'K

he reached the top turned around to i

The hoys yelled and Feveral tenants of
the building ran to the roof. Most of
them were Italians. When they heard what
was the matter several ran downstairs and
came back with axe c . with which they
chopped a larre hole in the tank. Water
that poured from it flooded the roof and
trioklcd to the ;ipartments below.
In the meantime a young man climbed
to the edge of the tank and grabbed
Domlnick. Then he fell Into the water,
frut he managed to hold the boy above

East 104 th street station, got both out.
Dr. Elliott, of Harlem Hospital, resus
citated Domintek and he was able to go
home. The water did about |SOO damage

Albany. June 20.— Declared insane by a
commission appointed by Governor Hughes
to examine him, I>uipi Gambacorta. a con

mon lieutenants, in advance of the Ohio
convention, whien will open tomorrow.
Governor Harmon himself 'followed his
lieutenants here, twenty-four hours ahead
of his schedule, after the Pomerene boom
had been well started. He refused to com

"It's to be an open convention. I am too

The effort to make Pomerene Governor
Harmon's running mate, despite his refusal
to consider himself in the light of even a
receptive candidate, Indicates the Intention
of the Harmon men to smother the feeble
movement for a senatorial indorsement, de
manded by William Jennings Bryan, but
opposed by Governor Harmon and the ma
jority of Ohio Democratic leaders. Tom I*
Johnson, of Cleveland, who expected to lead
the; apparently hopeless fight for an in
dorsement resolution, probably will not be
in the convention, but his lieutenants will
do . what they can with the fight. The
Cuyahoga (Cleveland) County delegation
favors an Indorsement.
The Harmon men have another task on
their hands besides that of handling the
lieutenant governorship and senatorial
complication with tact. Harvey Garber,
national coramitteeman and Ohio lieuten
ant of Bryan, is waging a relentless battle
for control of the nest State Central Com
mittee. He is making: the fight openly. In
nine of the twenty-one district meetings to
morrow th» Harmon and Garber men will
clash in their effort to gain control of the
committee, which names the state executive
committee and is the working machinery of
the party, both in the coming 1 convention
and later, when national delegates are to
be selected. s
That this Is the skirmish line of the next
national campaign is indicated in this
struggle, as well as in the building of the
Platform. In the platform, which will be
the expression of Governor Harmon's idea?!,
will be planks assailing the present tariff
and demanding a tariff for revenue only j
and the repeal of all duties on goods con
trolled in this country by trusts; indorse
ment of the federal income tax amend
ment and a pledge that the Democrats will
put it through the next Legislature; an
attack on extravagance and lax business
methods in the federal government, and in
Ohio a demand that a public utilities con
trol law be enacted and that the commis
sion form of government b<? provided for
cities. Reference will be made to th« clear
ing out of graft in the state house by Gov
ernor Harmon's inquiries. The liquor issue
will be Ignored.
To-night the movement for Pomerene
makes him seem the most probable choice
for the Lieutenant Governorship, with Sen
ator Daniel Mooney, of St. Mary's, and
Representative Charles Kempel, of Akron,
next choices. Governor Harmon has no op
position for re-elecjion.
For State Treasurer" the present Treasur

inquiry. Senator Robert Beatty, of Bowl

Justice Erlanger sustained yesterday the
demurrer of Gilbert H. Montague, receiver
of the Fulton Street Railroad Company, In
the action brought by the city for the re

sought to havft the tracks, now In disuse,
declared a nuisance and trespass, and de
manded that the receiver remove them and
restore the street to a good condition.
Justice Erlanger held that to tear up the

CHICAGO TOO WINDY CITY
Curtiss Will Not Enter Long
[By Telegraph to Th" Tribune]
Chicago, June 20.-"Chicaso is a poor
place for aeroplanes because It is the
'Windy City.' " •
Glenn H. Curtiss thus took a rap at the
city to-day in the course of a general dis
cussion of aviation. Mr. Curtiss was a Chi

Minneapolis, where he will fly at an avia

if not dangerous to attempt a flight. I

large element of lock. It will be- a hard
undertaking no matter how easy the pro~
moters attempt to make it"

Road Crossings at Railroads.
Albany. June l^.-S. Percy Hooker, chair
man of the State Highway Commission,
told the Public Service Commission to-day
that a majority of the t-xisting crossings of
steam railroads by improved state roads
were at sm-h a degree of curvature that
their crossing by automobilsa at reasonable
speed was dangerous. The commission had
before it the application of the State High
way Commission for modification of feat
ures of a propose.d crossing of the Le'nigh
Valley in the town of Farmington, Ontario
The Highway Commission and the town
authorities contended that inasmuch as th«
original drawings contemplated a crossing
over two tracks they should not be asked
to pay a proportion of constructing a. span
over six tracks. The company held that
the complete- span was necessary. Amended

sary by the Highway Commission are to
