"Going, going, gone" These woids and
the bang of the Sheriff's hammer
Hounded the death knell today of one of
the landmarks that has made the port
of Philadelphia Internationally famous.
The words marked the passing of the
shipbuilding plant established more than
40 years ago by John Koach at Chester
It was sold at a Sheriff's sale at 10
'dock this morning.
The sale marked the fifth financial re
Terse the plant, consisting of 2v acre
of land, shlpways, machinery and other
qulpment. has had since its inaugura
tion In 1ST! But It Is believed that this
famous old shipyard will never Again
"come back" as It has done previously.
John Koach, founder of the company,
opened the way for this country to build
warships unsurpassed by any other na
tion and blazed the trail for the estab
lishment of the now nil-powerful steel
industry. His financial vicissitudes are
history. His plant went Into the hands
of a receiver upon four occasions, but
always managed to struggle back to a
paying basis. Before tloaeh took over
the plant It was known as the Rnlner
shipyard. After Roach's death his son,
John B. Koach, operated the shipyard
It later became the Delaware River Iron
Ship and Engine Building Company, and
as such failed four years aso
HUNDREDS OF IRON SHIPS.
One hundred and fourteen lion vessels
were constructed under the Roach man
agement. Nearly 3v were completed later.
Among them were vessels which proudly
fly the American flag today. Many of
the AVard Line vessels wero built there,
a were a. number of steamships for
thr Ocean Stenmshlp Company of Sa
vannah. The Persian, Quantlco and
Lexington were built for th" latter com
pany They now ply to and from this
port In the Merchants and Miners'
Transpoi tatlon Company's service. Th
Harvard and Vale, Long Island Sound
steamships, and the American and Ha
waiian, pioneer essols of the American
Hawaiian Line, were also built upon the
fchlpivuvs sold by th Sheriff today. The
City of Saannah. constructed for th
Ocean Steamship Company, completed
seven years ago. was the last big steam
ship to usi- these ways.
Shipping men reran nle days when
as many as 10 vessels under construc
tion at one time were to be seen at
RonLlt's The work done at the plant
did muih to earn tho appellation of the
'Clyde of America" for the Delaware
River A famous old clipper ship, th
Tillle V. Starbuck, was on of the first
vessel ever built at these yards
BIRTH OF NEW NAVV.
The fame of Roach's shipyard is as
closel.v aligned with the growth of our
navy as it Is with the history of th
merchant marine. Some of Uncle Sam's
first Iron ships were turned out by John
Roach. The gunboats Alert, Huron.
Chicago, Atlanti. Bennington, Boston.
Concord and Puritan were completed
under his direction.
In Jvt the Hccic-tarv of the Navy called
for bids on four csds. the Atlanta.
Boston, Chicago and Dolphin. Roach was
one of the bidders He then owned in ad
dition to the shlpyaid, the Morgan Iron
AVorks and a steel making plant at Thur

other shipbuilders and the Navy Depart

The bear was sent to D C. Hanna,
manager of the Philadelphia Pure Rye
Distilling Company, from the Mnlne
woods as a Joke. But the bear was no
Joke. Mr. Hnntia decided that as n little
pet nt his home. 4JC2 Pnrkslde avenue, a
bear would not be a lilt among the neigh

a night watchman at his plant, so he
named the bear "Boss" and gave him

It was decided yesterday that a bath
would not hurt Bo.s. What Is more, the
bath was deemed almost Imperative. Cap

"We are looking for a bear," returned
the rescue party.
"Mnh goodness m. dat was him. dat

having a swim Rib Rlgbey called him
and tho bear came ashore. He climbed
a tree and there he stayed until he was
