[DT BtMM TO TUK TIlinrXK.]
Lovnov, Nov. 25.?A member of the Cabinet stated
yesterday that the Government was aatisfied with the
conduct of General Ilul'er, which hnd greatly raised
thc morale of the constabulary and was contributing
to the restoration and maintenance of order through?
out Kerry. That dissatisfaction exists with him amongst
a portion of the ext rame anti Home-Rulers lu Ireland
is true, and niu.b of it is due to his aide, Colonel
Turner, who served with him abroad and is unpopular
at Dublin Castle. A private letter to-day from a high
authority in Kerry finds fadlt with his withdrawal of
police protection from certain persons in that county
which the writer considers Inindieioin, though he ad?
mits that raids and moonlight outrages have almost
ceasid. Some well-informed persons aro Inoined to
think that the present peaceful state of things will not
last, and attribute it to th* policy of the seeret
societiea rather than to tbe emirs. General Buller is
pursuing, flic writer eon.nlers it the result of two
causes, one being that members of the secret societr*.
aware that informers ara abroad, distrust one another
and do not bring themselves within react) of the law.
The other is The widespread belief that General
Ibillei's police act promptly when meeting with moon?
lighter*, with the certainty of reward in proportion to
While outrages against thc person are thus diminish?
ing, the writer complains that as regards rent, land?
lords, to enforce payment, m"ist he able not only to
evict but to hold possession titer evictions. Unless a
caretaker be maintained in posses-ion the evicted
tenant lnwariably goes back, takes uri his quarters,
usually iu an out-house, feeds his cattle ou the land
without liability of rent, and leaves the landlord to
meet the rates and taxes. The evicted tenant also be?
comes the object of popular sympathy and receives,
besides ottt-door relief from the Union, assistance from
the National League. The landlord has onlv one of
three course*. If be evicts again, he Incurs the law
Costa and exjienses over again onlv to lind the evicted
tenant cone back ss before. Ortho landlord may
proceed against tho tenant for forcible entry, when the
case must be tried before a jury with thc result that
the tenant is usually acquitted and goes back to the
iand with the applause ol his neighbors. The third
remedy of the landlord is to summon for trespass.
To succeed on such a summons the caretaker, who
knows tho farm and the evicted tenant aud his cattle,
must appear to prove trespass. So the caretaker is tho
only hope, and the caretaker cannot be lound without
the strongest assurance that the authorities will pro?
tect his lire. lt is here that the landlords' complaint
ol General Bullet, that h's exercises a diipensiti"
power by granting protection to some caretakers anil
refusing it toothers, notwithstanding tte General's
denial in " The Timos/' is firmly asserted.
Nor is this all. When the landlord, after eviction,
seeks to recovpr his debt by seizing the tenant's stock,
ho must proofed by distress or by execution on a civil
hill, deoree for rent, or Jini-nnent of the Superior Courts.
The remedy by distress ie the cheapest method, as no
law costs or sheriffs fees have to lie paid, but it the
creditor proceeds by execution the cost* are consider?
able and in the case oi a small farm olten exceed a year's
rent. Tbe remedy by distress also enables the'laiid
lord to make hls'seizure suddenly. It is alleged in
Kerry that Hillier has declined to assist the landlorus
who seek to recover rent by distress, by refusing them
protection. This is declared to he equivalent to
abolishing tbe remedy by distrcs, which l'arl ament
has repeatedly refused to do. No man ccuid attempt
to seize cattle ii. Kerry without a large police backing.
General Buller cannot relu-,c protection to thc sherill,
enforcina a civil decree or Bupetioi Court judgment,
as that would expose him to punishment lor contempt
of court, but he has increased the length of the notice
require.I from the sherill in order to obtain protection
and allows onlv police connected with the district to be
employed in protecting him. These regulations ex?
pose tiie intended action ot the sherill i which inuit be
Axed for a particular hourj to bott aval hythe local

The western channel of the East River, off

noon by a 6tcam biller explosion, which blew a
(iii? to atoms, stove a hole an big as a bam door
in a schooner Dear In and killel Ave men outright
in less than one second. The ill-fated tug waa the
Sunbeam of I.lizabethport, N. J., with a captain
ind three men aboard?fin engineer, a lli-emaii nnd
a deck hand. What was thought to be the body
of thc engineer was picked up an hour or two
Inter, and toward evening nnother body, badly
s call led. nnd probably that of the fireman, drifted
np against thc sea-wall of Blackwell's Island. No
trace has been found of the other two men from
tho tog, and they arc probably at ???><- bottom of
The big schooner, whose side was partly broken
in, is thc .lames H. Deputy, of Hath, Maine. She
is a lumber ooaatoC and was (iischurvrini* a t-mgo
of killis at the p-fet at Hast I.ightietb-st. One of
the crew, the c.vok, William W. Hodgkins, of
lltinnewell's 1-oint, Maine, was killed by tho ex
I dosi on. and another, Edward Bradshaw, of lar?
ker's Mead, Maine, was badly Injured about the
left arm and head. 'Hie captain, mate nnd one
other sailor, though all on deck, escaped unhurt.
The rigging of thc ship was riddled with fly in;
?OB-DJ of iron and splinter, mil the masts wein
almost carried away by the shock of the debris
'Hie schooner sprung a leak and begun to fill
BteadUjr with water, she is uninsured and (he
loss will fall up n her captain and owner, (.eoiire
W. Stacy, of l'atLei's Head. Maine. This was to
be fbe .lames II. Deputy's last trip south and al?
most thc tojst bundle of laths had been got off
when the unfortunate tug's boiler bursicd.
now un-: ACCIDBBT OOCOBBBTA,
As far ns Captain Sta. y could recall QM facts
last niizht. thc accident happened much as follows:
His schooner had lain up a day or two afro at the
Elgbtktb-at [der to dtachaiBJO ber cargo of lumber,
tOBeigncid to Nathaniel Wise, a dealer near by.
DatureCB bet and thc pier proper were two other
schooners, both loaded with stone, thc J, S. In
graham. Ot Maine, and thc Gladys, of St. John,
Ncw-Bnmswlck. It was a rather tedious process
ranying the laths ashore, and though the captain
hal exiccted to l<n .ck off work by Thanksgivm,'
I>ay. some 70,000 latlis wore left on deck Wednes?
day night and all hands were put on duty yester?
day morning to dear the ranrfO for sailing today,
lim wind blew a goo.l-sizcd northeaster across
(he river and the rain began to fall in shela
about noon. The men put on their oil-skin coats,
however, and kept working. Tho fog and wet
mado thins nasty and slippery from stem to
stern, mid thc soaked lumber became harder and
harder to handle.
Th'- captain had hoped to take a tow over to
Hunter's l'oint before noon, but that was found
to be Impossible. At half past twelve the Sun?
beam stearne! alongside and offered its services.
'Hie captain of the tug came aboard, and after
some baisnlning and hacgling on both sides a price
WM fixed for thc trip across to Hunter's Point
The Sunbeam was randy t>) start at once, but Cap?
tain Stacy sail that he could not get ready before
3 o'clock. 'Hie tug was to return at that hour.
'Hie captain however, decide! not lo cruise about
thc river in the rain and tied up alongside of tho
Lo| lily's bow.
There were only a lbw thousand laths left cn
deck ut 2 o'clock. The engineer of thc Sunbeam
had pone ashore for a few minutes, but now
hurried back. Thc captain, tho deck hand and
t> 1 ii.,...-.'J> wen all Blttlm- In shelter in what
selvce on small tusrs like the Sunbeam for both
ci.bin und en.ine-room. Captain Stacy had been
Miana. tOO, and was makin-,' his wav back across
the Ingrahnm and thc Gladys to his own vessel,
w. W. HodgHna, the cook or itearard, mid Ed?
ward Rmdahnw, a sailor, were working up near
thc ford&Utft on the side of the Deputy toward thc
tu;:. Augustus H. Ilodgkina, a brother of thc
steward, was standing near tha mainmast, and
John Cresley, another sailor, eran working further
forward but over agninat the shore side of thc
vessel and pnilly sheltered from view by the piles
of hillls themselves.
Kl'FKCT OF 1IIK SHOCK.
Just aa Captain stacy was clambering ur ''|0
of tho Deputy, the explosion came
It was a sudden putt uni roan mid
then a dark cloud of Hying bits like a hail of bul?
lets and broken sholls. The hist whirr and shock
seemed to sweep everything Hat; then came tho
dill sound of thc big fragments of iron and lead,
the enabling ot tho splinter* and the sharp cries
of agony and terror. .
Tbs captain bad bren blown back on thc deck
of the Gladys, safe, th..ugh for a moment
unconscious. Augustin Hodgkins, tho mate, lay
near bv, also safe and sound, though blowu twenty
feet through the air and lighting on the stono-cov
??red deck. ClOSOOT, tho sailor, was crouched bo
hind the bales of lath, which had luckily protected
him. All three had their wits again in a moment
and sprang to their feet to see what had become of
the tug at.d tho two meu nearest thc point of
Win re the tug had been was nothing but a seeth?
ing miss ol water. I ne river as far across as tho
lowering fog would let ono seo was flecked willi
hits of debris, wood, brass and boiler iron, now
floating for a moment, now sinking with a sw..hil
and bubbling into the disturbed aud angry waters.
The deck of tho Deputy was a litter of scraps or
bon and wooden splinters. Tho pine lath bales
were scattered topsy-turvy, the masts were trem?
bling still, am! tho ship rocking from thc sudden
blow. 1 ho bole m tho side showed a black, ugly
mouth, imo which the water had begun to pour.
'I lie two men who had been working by tho lore
mast had disappear..-.!. Oft tho starboard bow,
where the tug had lain wailing for tho cargo to
dibcbaige, a broken and mutilated body could bo
men dimly bmf sinking in the foamy waters. It
lb.at.*.l foi-a moment longer and tho mate tbouglit
ho recognized his brother's face and clothes. No
one etas waR sure, aud soon the lifeliss mau Dliingod
out of sight.
Closer ni to shore the other sailor, Bradshaw,
was soon noticed coining to the surface. Ho had
an ugly gash mi his forehead, from which tho blood
oozed freely, and tho clothes had been torn from
his left arm aud shoulders, showing wounds and
bruises thero. Ho was plainly alive, however,
though crippled. Tho water was still whirling and
covered wltli f>am, and something bad to bo douo
at once if tho struggling sailor was to be saved.
The mate and the uninjured seamail lowered tho
ship's ya wi and started for both the drowulug men.
Bradshaw was picked up safely and car?
ried back to the schooner, but the body
Bf tba steward Hodgson did Bot come to the sur?
face again, though the yawl waitod on tbe river
BOOM nfteon minutes for it to reappear, iso trace
of the four men on the tug could oe found for moro
than an hour. Then a mutilated body was thrown
up on the shore just below the Deputy's pier, and
some time afterward another scalded trunk was
driven on the north end of Blackwell's Island.
DAMAGK TO THK SCHOO.NKl..
Captain Stacy ran below to examine tho bole in
tho ship's side. He found the leak rather
threatening, and took steps to have lt
Htopped as far as possible. The damage to tho
Vc ssc! is serious. Tho captain could give no esti?
mate ol bis losa last night, but saul that the Deputy
would huvq to be almost made over again fur uu
Tho rigging was found cut up curiously by the
iron scrap* and slugs. Scarcely a ?""fl1*
MM waa left Hound and taut, and me
sails, which had been furled and *ral)*"*,'[
in tarpaulin covers, were riddled with small
holes. Tho biggest piece from the wreca
found was a mass of boiler iron, weighing at least,
BOO ponda, which flow ncross tho three ne looners
without touching a thing and lauded on tne pier
beyond, lt mado a big hole in the tiuiber? aud
scattered a shower of splinters on all side*.
j he noise of the explosion brought a lew strag?
glers along the piers to tho spot, uud news ot tho
mishap found its way about 9 o clock to
tho Twenty-second Precinct Police Station.
A squad of aoma twenty ollicer* were scut
to Kightieth-st. to take charge of the doad bodies
?ud k.op order gcueraily about the disabled
schooner. 1 he tirst body bad come ashore by that
time and was stretched out on au uniued bargo,
the Frank Davis, Iving two or three piers below
tho Deputy a. From the clothes, which were
grcasv und stained with oil, it waa Judged
that thedesd mau was tbe 8utih?sins engine.r.
He was rather above the medium height,
ft feet 10 inches perhaps, and weighed
probable 275 pounds. Ilia face waa covered
witn a beard or snout a wee ks growm tum ms
mustache, which was rathor heavy, had a sandv
tinge. His lips and face were badly torn aud
mangled and his head had been crushed, apparent?
ly by some sharp-edged Diece of iron. His body
was covered afterward with a cloth and put away
under a pent-roof at the stern of the barge. Offi?
cer J amos Mclierr, of the Twenty-second Precinct,
waited at the pier for nome one to identify the
i ho other body, that of the man washed ashore on
Blackwell's Island, was seypiely scalded aud hnrned.
The face was not disfigured snd there wore no
wounds on the trunk. The face was an old man's,
hut nothing further was made out. lt seems more
than likely that some of the tug's crew might have
been blowu to pieces along with tho boat Itself.
WHAT THK CATTAI** OK TIIK SC HOON KR SASS.
Captain .Stacy said last night:
I have one or two things to be thankful for still. It's a
great me rev the whole ship didn't go and the whole crew
with it. The ixputy ls un BM shin In the lumber
earrj lng business and I thought wedina not through this
Massa pretty will until now. Hut I really don't mind tho
Bamaga to tts vesssl a* much as tho loss of my
steward, ss lino a young man ns I have ever
hud In my crew. I wanted to get over to Hunter's
I'olnt, you see, mid made a bargain with tho Huuboam's
captain fur tte towing. He came came aboard, but I
didn't think to ask him lil* unine. I know, however, that
the tug wns from Kllzubethport, I told him ho needn't
walt. If he didn't want to, but, he tied np, and Just before
the last few bundle* were taken otl. the " Idler busted."
It must have been an old one, for we were not even in
motion, and tho engineer had only started to get up
I should like to sall for Bath to-nmrrow, but I ought to
try te CH tho steward's body, mid then, thc schooner ls
scarcely lu Ht shape for a coasting voyage. The loss will
fall on me. I have BO Insurance either.' It wus a great
shock, but tte men who were not hurt took lt with ro
inj.rlvul.il. coolness. Wc were lucky to get Kradshaw out
of the water again.
The mute, Augustus H. Hod gi tis. isa slight, blond
man. uot more than thirty years of agc He felt
much grieved la^t night over Ins brother's sudden
death. The stew ard was not married and was also
rather young. The mate hail lit tel lo add to tbe
demils already given. He was blown clear across
the deck and came out nnhurt, but by tho time he
came to his senses tho thing was practically over
and ho didn't remember anything but getting to
work to save his brother and the other seaman in
8TATKMEXT OK TIIK ItESCL'KD MAN.
Bradshaw was about again last night cooking
sapper, and showing fow marks of injury. He said
to a Tkibivk reporter:
I shipped with Captain Stacy of the schooner Deputy at
Bath last spring as a deck hand. We have been carrying
lumber all summer and arrived here ou Wednesday with
a load of lumber and laths. We began unload?
ing tho laths this morning. Tho lumber
will bo unloaded at Hunter's I'olnt. About
noon to-day tho tug boat Hunbeam pas.ed us
bound up tho riv.-r. Captain Stacy balled uer mid she
e.ime alongside. I made out the word Sunbeam on her
Ufa gram IBIS nnd afterward on ber stern rail. Her
captain, as I rec.licet, was a tall mun, apparently ll fly
years of age, with a heavy gray beard and whiskers. Two
deck hands clad In overalls and cloth coats buttoned
tight across their chests nnd throats assisted In making
lior fast. I saw tho engineer afterward come out of tho
engine-room and go ashore. I also saw him return snd I
believe tho body lying on the lighter FrankDavIs to be lils
ns 1 distinctly recollect his stubby beard, bis blue check
Jumper und the grease and coal tar on his clothes. None
of tho crew showed any . sign of intoxication.
When tho engineer returned I saw him go
down Into the t-ugjuic-ro.uu mid the two men
who had been In the engine room during
his absence came on deck again. It was some tbno after
the engineer's return ih.it the explosion took place. Tho
captain had spent some of tho timo In the wheel?
house, some of tho timo walking up and down
tho deck smoking a pli?e or a elgar,BM when the ex?
plosion occurred ho wns either In tho cabin or on
the opposite side of the cabin and wheel-house from whero
Our object In balling the tug wns to get a tow from her
over to Hunter's Point to unload the lumber. We ei
pected to be ready for the tow about 2 o'clock. The tug's
captain concluded to walt for us and accordingly hove to aud
made fust to our side. Hue was a small tug and in that
poaltloa the top of ber covered engine bouse did not rise
mix h higher than tho top of our deck load. We sot to
work with redoubled energy to unload the lath. Our
crew consists of five men, Including the captain. Four
of us were unloading and tho cantala was In tho
cabin. I worked with tho steward, w. \V. Hodgkins, and
my mate, Creaseri worked with tho steward's brother,
Augustus Hodgkins, who ls mate on bonni tho Deputy.
Ky '_' p. m. we had tho laths nearly all unloaded, save
a few bundles ljlng on that side of tho deck
nearest to the tug. The other two had Just gone ashore,
each with bl. bundle of laths, aud the stewsnl nnd my?
self had Just returned for our load. I was standing about
even with the engine-room door of the tug aud the stew
;.ul B little moro forward, about opposite her wheel
Tbe last words he spoke to me or any one were : " Move
lively, man; lt's 'most done now/ I stooped over to
grasp the I.uudle, bringing my head below the bulwarks
w hen the cxplosiou came. To this I attribute inv escape,
as the bulwark behind which I stooped was
all shattered. Tho steward was standing
erect and hence must havo felt tho full force of ihe
explosion. I have only a vague Idea of what I felt at tho
time. I know I heard a groat roar, which ls not out of
my ears yet, mut experienced a sensation a.. if the air had
suddenly turned bia. k and was pressing on me from all
sides with tremendoua weight I felt no pain. The tlrst
di-tiuct shock I "felt wm tho Baldness
and suffocation of tho waler. As I rose
to tho surface, I became dimly aware thnt I was
In the river and Instinctively sei/anl a plank tloutlug near
m. and rested my chest upon lt. Just then tho ghastly
and bloody he ml of a mun rose to tho surface. I rooog
nf/e.l it as that of thc steward. I'.lood was oozing
from his ears nnd a stream of blood welled
up from a fearful gash In his forehead and streamed into
bis eye. and mouth and over his face so as to render lt
almost unrecognisable to ear om* who did not know bim
well. Even then 1 do aol think that If I had been much
further away from him I should have known him. With?
out a sound or a struggle lie sunk aud never rose again.
Uk* horror of the sight and the Intense pain which I
now began to feoj in my head and arin brought mo to a
vivid consciousness of my surroundings. I found that tho
tide was carrying mo rapidly away from tho schooner. I
shouted for assistance to my comrades, whom I could seo
standing on tho side of the scbooucr gazing when- tte
steward sank, A small boat was Immediately lowered,
ami I was soon drawn In benumbed with cold and bleed?
ing profusely from a scalp wound. My tight shoulder
and arin are severely strained and bruised, as If I hud

Tho owner and captain of tho Sunbeam was
Cbriatophni Farks, whoso homo was at Nih 130
East Elt.'vcutli-st. Ho was a widower, forty one
years of ag.*, aud lived with his sister. Mrs. Evans.
He had been a river pilot for years, and was t'or
uicil.v in tho employ of the Ene iiailroad Company
as pilot on one of its boats. In 1874 he left the
boating business and tried to get on tho
police force. He waa appolutcd on January r>
and soon afterward was promoted to tho
rank of roundsman. He did duty for three years
ni the Third Preciucf, then known as tho .steam?
boat Squad, nuder Captain Uastlin, and was popu?
lar along tiie river trout. He was wall known
among boating men aud was cotuuianly called
"thristy.'' He was afterward trausfeired to thj
Twenty-eighth Precinct and was OOlni duty there
in 1 .*i*i"l as rouudsman, when he resiguod io go back
to tho boating business. He purchased the boat
Hattie Lawson. He commanded her himself
and had not been owner of her more
than eight months, when she took Uro
and was burned.
For the last five years until recently Parks had
beeu pilot of tho ti:e-boat Havemeyer. About six
months ago lie purchased the tug .-unbc au for
#1,000. bhe is said to have beeu an old boat. His
sister, Mrs. Evans, said the boat had boen laid up
for repairs three mouths ago and again about three
weeks ago. Farks commanded the tug in person.
Hie Havemeyer was put out of commission and he
obtained leave of absence. Ho had been working
ou thc tug .Sunbeam since.
Farks left his homo at half-past 0 yesterday morn?
ing aud went on board i be tug. He wastocome home
again ut 7 p. ni. lhere is no doubt that he was on
thc Sun boam when shu blew up. Frionds of Farks
said that there wero only two others beside the
captain on the tug. but the crew of the Deputy are
certain I hat there were four in all. The boolee
picked up were removed to the Morgue late last
