SAVED BY HYDROAEROPLANE.
Filer ftklma From Shore In Man
Thrown Knim llowlioal.
Sea Curr, I,. I Oct. 10. A hydro
ucroplano was successfully used this
afternoon to rescue a man drowning in
Hempstead Harbor, oft here. Walter
Htrohbach went overboard from a row
boat and was having a hard fight In tho
water when Charles Wald, the avlutor,
who had been apprised of the situation,
leaped Into his machine? and In less than
n minute had covered tho half mile and
picked up the young man.
Strohbach, '13 years old, of Flatbush
nnd El wood Sawyer, 24 years, of tho
name place, who have been spending a
few days here, decided this afternoon
to go out for a row In the harbor.
Neither of them Is an expert swimmer.
When they were about half a mile from
shore Strohbach while moving about In
the boat lost his balance and fell Into
the water.
.Sawyer, who was at tho oars, tried
to row back to him, while Htrohbach
floundered about. Hawyer seemed to
mako little progress In rescuing his
friend nnd the latter was becoming ex
hausted from his own efforts.
Some one on shore noticed the plight
of the two and hurried to Aviator Wuld,
who was tuning up his machine for his
day's fflght. He Jumped Into the ma
chine Immediately and put on all the
speed he possibly could. The hydro
aeroplane seemed to fly along tho water
and Wald headed straight for tho sink
ing youth.
He reached him none too soon, as
Strohbach had gone dojsn for the second
time nnd was making n frantic effort to
keep from drowning. Wald ns he sped
up to him threw him a life preserver
and then hauled him onto the machine.
Strohbach was hurried to shore nnd
carried to the Glenwood Country Club,
close by, where a physician succeeded In
bringing him nround. Sawyer came
back to shore with the boat and then
hurried to the Country Club to look
after his friend. Later on Strohbach
was able to go to his boarding house.
Wald then made a flight out over the
bay, circling about tho scout boaM
which are to take part In the naval
parade and which have been anchored
In the Sound off here.
DYNAMITE IN BLAZING AUTO.
Vamp Smllrr, Then Tarn a Hoae
on It, and Xolblne; Happens.
After the volunteer firemen of Farm
ingdale, L. I had trundled a blazing
automobile out of a burning garage the
owner of the garage yelled to them that
there was dynamite In the machine.
They promptly scattered and when they
ventured back it was with a hose and
a stream of water. The dynamite
didn't blow up.-
The garage Is owned by LeoXappertz.
He bought seventeen sticks of dynamite
for use on his property, but thought that
It would be too dangerous for him to
handle, as he was not familiar with It.
So he decided to give the dynamite to
John Raum, foreman for Benjamin F.
Yoakum, a real estate operator. Kap
pertz put the explosive In the car on
Wednesday afternoon, meaning to tak'j
It to the Yoakum place. While work
men were burning the paint off an auto
mobile in the paint shop adjoining the
Kuppertz garage one of the men laid his
torch near a gasolene tank and the tank
blew up. The front of tho shop was
blown out nnd the garage was set on
fire. Three automobiles In tho paint
shop were destroyed and half n dozen
machines In the garage were slightly
damaged. Tho loss Is estimated at
about $8,000.

Body.
C0trHT LOCKS IT JURY
Tudicntioti Tlmt. DofciiPfi Will
Try to Show Vallon Kilted
Itosentlinl.
Tho trial of Lieut. Charles Becker was
distinguished late yesterday afternoon
by Louis Krause's identification at the
bar of tho court of Oyp tho Blood Horo
witz, Lofty Louio Rosenberg and Whitey
Lewis (Frank Mul(er) as three of tho four
men who shot Herman Rosenthal dead
in the doorway of the Metropole. Dago
Frank Cirofici he wa not sure about,
but he pointed to Jack Sullivan as tho
man who bent over Rosenthal's body
and who then turned with a laugh to the
murderers.
The identifications were made under
the most dramatic circumstances. Krause,
who is a waiter and whoso name has been
spelled in previous court records aa Krese,
had just testified emphatically and with
every appearance of sincerity that do
splte the threats of roughs gathered In
Forty-third street he had stayed and had
seen the murder and then noticed Bridgie
Webber running toward Broadway. Dis
trict Attorney Whitman gave his witness
a chanco to demonstrate the accuracy
of his memory.
Whiter l.auaha When Identified.
Justice GofT directed that the four
gunmen and Jack Sullivan linked with
Lieut. Becker as accused murderers bo
brought from the Tombs. They entered
laughing or sneering, according to their
manner. Krauso left the witness chair
and when called upon to point out Whitey
Lewis unhesitatingly touched that gang
man on the shoulder. Iwis laugbed
In his face. He laid his hand on Lefty
Louie Rosenberg and kept it there a mo
ment unperturbed by Rosenberg's black
glances. He pointed squarely at Horo
witz, who showed his teeth in a smllo in
whloh thp.ru wah no niprrlmpnt. And
hen he turned to Jack Sullivan, who
fairly shrank away from him. Krauso
was as cool and undisturbed ns if he had
been standing in a restaurant taking an
order for dinner
For two houra John F. Mclntyre did
his best to wreck Krause's testimony but
failed utterly. Mr. Mclntyre attacked
the witness with all Die weapons of an
experienced crow-exn.mlner. Ho cooed
at him. His voice roo to a roar. Ills
questions came like the fire of a gatling.
In his curious, clone clipped Knglish, the
Hungarian replied readily and positively
and involved himself in no important con
tradictions. It was not necessary for the
District Attorney or Assistant District
Attornoy Moss to protect him by ob
jections. 1 Defence KiKht lo Clear finnmen.
80 far as tho plans of the defenoe wero
developed by the cross-examination of
Krause, it seemed evident that they are
fighting not only to clear Becker but to
exculpate tho gunmen accused of the
actual murder. Home of Mr. Molntyro'x
questions indicated that the defence wil I
try to show that Rosenthal was shot by
Harry Yallon, now one of the principal
witnesses for the prosecution.
Under rapid headway after tho selection
Just before noon of the twelfth juror, tho
fourth nay s resslon of tho trial produced
tho testimony of six witnesses. Tho State
took tho necessary steps in proving the
murder by calling Policemen John J.
Brady and William J. File, Dr. Dennis
Taylor, an ambulance surgeon of Flower
Hospital; Dr. Otto II. Schultze, the cor
oner's physician who performed the au
topsy on Rosenthal's Ixxly, and Jacob
Hecht, a waiter in the Hotel Metropole
restaurant. Krause, the waiter, tho sixth
witness, o(ened the way for the develop
ment of the larger features of the trial.
He waa called to Identify the gunmen so
that the State can go ahead with its work
of connecting Lieut. Becker with the crime
committed by the gunmen. '
nose .Mny Testify To-day,
For that general purposo the prose
cution will call for its first witness this
morning Giovanni Htanich, an Austrian,
who, like Krause, was standing in front
of the Metropole, who saw the shooting
and who later Identified sovornl of the
murderers. It Is not unlikely that Jack
Rose will take the stand some time to-day,
but the plans of tho District Attorney aro
subject to change in that particular.
Mrs. Herman Rosenthal, it Is oxpectod,
will lie one of tho main witnesBos to-day
to toll the Btory of her husband's relations
with Lieut, Becker.
The witnesses of yesterday wero ex
amined in the afternoon session. In the
morning session the jury box was filled
by tho selection of Samuol H. Haas, an
accountant, who lives at 270 Kast 201st
street, as Juror No. 12, and in the opening
address of tho District Attorney to the
jury Sir. Whitman Indulged in no high
flown orator'. He presented the history
of the crime from tho standpoint of tho
prosooution simply nnd effectively. Ho
did not put the Police Department on
trial. Ills charges concerned the one
policeman under Indictment, but of him
the District Attorney said:
"Ho was the real murderer, .the most
desperate criminal of them all; the cool,
calculating, scheming, grafting police
officer."
The opening address showed that the
prosecution has evidence that has never

FLAMING FLUID SCATTERS
Company's Flro Fighters nnd
Tugs Fail to Savo Ships
Filled With Cargo.
Fire starting after a boiler explosion
on the oil tank steamship Dunholme of
the Standard Oil Company fleet, which
was docked at the Standard Oil Com
puny wharves at Constable Hook, south
of Hayonne. burned that vessel to the
water edge, completely destroyed the oil
schooner Coronet, scorched tho Narra
gnnsett, Saxnllne and Hohenzollern, all
of which aro large tank steamships, and
In all did damage of $500,000 to $600,000.
At midnight two men were reported
to be still missing; of these It was
thought that one was burned to death.
The captain of the Donholme Is Fred
Osborne. He, with his wife .and" daugh
ters und the crew of twenty-five men,
Jumped overboard and were picked up.
The missing man supposed to be
drowned Is Fireman Frank Nesblt.'
The Norwegian bark Concordia was a
total wreck.
The Dunholme was scheduled to leave
Bayonne for Fnglnnd this morning, and
her full cargo of 50,000 barrels of oil
was on board, packed away In enses.
Tho captain, his wife, two daughters
nnd one or two friends wero In the
cnbln when, shortly after 8 o'clock,
there was a huge explosion which lifted
the big vessel half out of tho water.
A geyser of flume fully fifty feet
high belched up Into the night, and as
tho blazing oil came down It spattered
In nil directions. Spots of flro appeared
all over tho deck; the wooden pier
caught on fire, and burning puddles of
oil fell In the water alongside the
strlrigplece unquenched by the salt
water.
As the ship recovered from the first
explosion ehe split In tho middle nnd
down the sUIps and roaring yellow
flames poured from the gaps.
The crew, those of them that had
been below, rushed to the deck. At first
glance It appeared as If the entlro ves
sel would be consumed within a few
moments, and the captain, his family
nnd most of the crew plunged over tha
side rails. There, swimming around tho
spots of flame which dotted the water
around them, they all kept afloat until
ropes could be thrown to them from
other piers and vessels.
Alongside the Dunholme wns the Nar
rngansett, tho largest oil tank steam
ship In the world. Spots of flame, shot
far out by the explosion, reached her
nnd at tho direction of Port Captain
Smith she was towed out Into tho bay.
In the same dock were tho Saxnllne,
the Coronet and the Hohenzollern. The
Hohenzollern was badly singed by the
oil which spattered from tho Dunholme,
and the Coronet wns so badly tired that
she could not be saved.
The Coronet wns on oil schooner of
30,000 barrels capacity. The Saxallno
was saved. Tho Hohenzollern suffered
about $1,000 damage.
The Standard Oil Company's force of
fire fighters, organized to protect seven
miles of wharves which the company
has In Bayonne, found their hands full
from the start, and word was sent to
Manhnttan. The flreboats McClellnn
and New Yorker wero sent down. The
Standard Oil men fought from the shore
with streams of water, but they couldn't
get close enough to the heart of the
blaze to affect It.
Twenty-seven tugs of the Standard
OH fleet wero run to tho water side of
the fire and the men on these boats
played hose 1 on the Are.
Thousands lined tho Staten Island
shore to watch the spectacle. Tho fire
could not be seen from New York, as it
lay around a hook of land, but the
Staten Island ferryboats passed within
eyesight of it.
At first reports many men were re
ported killed,
One of the watchmen who had been
burned by oil from the first explosion was
found In the Bayonne Hospital and was
not dangerously Injured. He Is Peter
Lcnnon, 30 years old, of 207 Avenue B,
Bayonne.
At 12:30 this morning the fire was
still lighting up the bay for miles
nround. Tho Dunholme was still hope
lessly on fire; Pier 3, nt which she was
docked, was gone nnd the flro had a
grip on Pier 4, which looked as If Jt
could not be shaken off".
The loss on the Dunholme will be
$400,000, according to G. B. Glfford, gen
eral superintendent of the plant. The
loss on the Coronet, which wns loaded
with 0,000 barrels of of oil ond parafflne,
Is about $50,000, and tho damage to the
plera and the other vessels which wero
slightly burned will amount to about
$150,000 more.
Early this morning Supt. Place said
he believed thnt tho explosion which
started the flro wns capsed by de
fectlvo wiring In tho electrical servlco
on board.

Fourth stamp To-day, Polo Gronnds
Boston, Oct. 10. Again to-day tha
Giants and Red Sox had It out tooth and
nail for the laurel wreath of baseball
and this time the Giants won. The score
by which they subdued the lied Sox
was 2 to 1 and then they won by a
squeak so narrow that everything de
pended on tho last ball hit whether they
were to have a victory over the Bos
tonlans or whether the incubus of two
defeats was to be carried by them until
resuming play In New York to-morrow.
A victory apiece, with one game a tie,
Is the reckoning now and both teams
aro going strong and bulging vlth
fighting spirit.
Somewhat different In complexion
from the first two games was this' after
noon's contest. The rivals settled dowa
to baseball which was of smoother tex
tu re and more natural in Us pace. Yet
to-day's game lacked nothing In Inten
sity nnd was carried through with all
the closeness of the two others. It waa)
In keeping with Its fellows la belnc
crammed to tho full with uncertainty,
and yet the teams played as If tha
pressuro wasn't quite so high aa It
their collective tcmperaturo had com
down t.. moro normal degree.
With opportune uso of tho bat, lni
sertlng blows not often but whon sorebJl
needed, tho Giants ran up a score of two)
and turned the Red Sox back baffled ant)
scoreless for eight consecutive innings
In the last two Innings, however, thai
Red Sox attack quickened a bit, urged
on by the speedy necessity of dolnsT
something noon or being beaten. If
never quickened sufficiently to avoid d4
feat, but the pugnacious stand made 1BJ
the last Inning did prevent a whitewash.
Just as pugnacious was New York's
defence in seeing that the damage did)
not exceed ono run, and It was stanch
enough then, as at all times, to hold tha
hard earned vantage. A muff by Mcr
kle was the only fissure in tho New)
York fielding, It coming in tho ninth!
Inning after the Red Sox had made their
hermit run. It cost nothing, but It did)
creato a perilous situation and thera
was a furor of excitement In tho stands
until Devoro with a superb running;
catch of a lino drive so hard that It was
almost Invisible brought the game to
an end with two base runners bound

A fitting wlndup that to a gams
which terminated In a final Inning Into
which was crowded all of Boston's hopes
and most of New York's danger! It
was such a boiling, roaring inning, this
ninth, that tho emotions of the em
banked throng ran the gamut, and the
players of both sides must have been
In a nervewrncking state of being. Rube
Marquard took up the pitching burden
for the Giants; to him was trusted the
responsibility of doing the hurling in a
manner which would keep tho Red Sox
properly In restraint. Marquard was
In dire straits toward tho last, but nil
told he was the rnnster of the Red Sox.
He was tho knottiest New York pitching
problem tho American League cham
pions have faced so far In the series.
He came back In admirable style, did
the Rube, even If tho sword of Damocles
was hanging over his head In the ninth.
But tho thread that held tho sword
was beyond severing by tho Red Sox
nnd the Bubo pitched a gamo which re
dounds greatly to his credit
It wasn't nil his fault thnt he was In
trouble In the ninth, although he ap
peared to bo losing his grip. The error
by Merklo made things worse for him,
but he wns plucky even then nnd for,
the greater part of the game cool and
deliberate. The fast hop ball which hns
mado Murquard famous and formldablo
was on show tn-day and greatly per
plexed tho Red Sox. In his rear pocket
ho carried rosin or what Is colloquially
known oh curvo paste. Ho dipped his
salary hand into tho pocket after every
ball pitched and proceeded along care
fully and taking plenty of time.
In the closing Inning the Rube had to
listen to a storm of yeHJng by tha home
rooters and to the discordant blars of
a brass band, which let looae with a
wild racket as he was about, to pttoh.
But he stood uptBtre taaarytous to
