Edge, snd Mayor Webb called a meeting of th?
citizens. He was at o.ice empowered to do wha he saw fit for the Immediate relief of the suffer ers. He drove to Woodrldge, where he secure the use of Heln's Hotel, and the homeless wen transferred to it. There were not beds enough but the-K? were supplied either from the ruins 01 by those fortunate enough to encape the whir: of the wind. A Committee of Relief was alst named at Mayot Webb's meeting. RELIEF FROM HACKENSACK. In Hackensack ahout ll.fJOO was <*ollected, which was turned over to the treasurer. This was ofily a starter, for at each of the churches collections for the homeless were taken up. Every, pastor In the city preached on the ca? lamity) and each announced a meeting to be held la the Opera Houee to-night for the pur? pose of raising funds. t PREACHING AMID THE RUINS. In Cfcerry Hill the Rev. A. Duryea. pastor of the Reformed Church, conducted services in the afternoon In the lot back of the damaged church. He used the ruins of the reat porch as the pul? pit platform. Never In the history of the village bad it contained so Urge a congregation as as? sembled to hear the minister, there being about three thousand pensons present. Mr. Duryea was In Boston at the Christian endeavor Convention last week, and yesterday RUINS AT CHERRY HILL, afternoon started for home. He first heard o? the tornado while waiting In the Jersey City station o? the Erie Railroad. When he en? tered the train the conductor told him he would have no church to preach in on Sunday, and then he heard details. The Reformed Church Is only a short distance from the ruins of the Freidman Hotel, and Freidman'B body lay in one of the lower rooms which was not damaged. His widow and some friends were there, and when they heard the choir sing the widow could not restrain her tears. DAMAGE ALONG THE RIVER. In addition to the wreck in Cherry Hill, almost every house along the river from Cherry Hill to ftlver Edge was damaged to some extent. Many had their chimn*ys blown off and others had their roofs started. It seemed as though the storm was travelling about thirty feet from the ground. Mo_t o? the houses are two and one hali stories. Tin roofs were found, twisted Into shapes almost unimaginable. In lots and cornfields hundreds of feet from the houses from which tbey were torn. Many sections of houses wrecked by the blast were in danger of toppling over and Injuring those who crowded about. The Hackensack and Tenally hook and ladder companies went to Cherry Hill and tore down the threatening portions. The extensive greenhouses on the estate of the late William Walter Phelps were badly dam? aged. Hailstones caused the greater part of this damage. . The handsome home of John Voorhees, cashier of the Chemical National Bank, was not far from the path of the t.rnado, but It escaped in Jury. There was no damage In Hackensack, which Is only a mile snd a half from the centre of the storm-swept section. The path of the storm was about four hundred feet wide. It travelled to the southeast along the river. A half mile from where it struck It turned to the eastward and disappeared. T. 8. Peck, one of the residents whose houses were wrecked, said he saw the storm coming. He said the wind was preceded by a roaring sound, much like the noises heard during a storm at sea. This lasted a few minutes. He looked up and saw a dark cloud, from which ?. moment later the gray funnel-shaped wind cloud came. A driving shower of hailstones preceded the blow. The patrol which was organized on Saturday night went on duty again at dark, last night, and refus.*-! all permission to go through the ruina. They will continue on duty until relieved by some other means of guarding the property. Several tents were procured in Hackensack yesterday for the use of those who remain on the ground.

William Hudson, employed In the statistical department of the Fidelity and Casualty Com? pany In New-York, was rowing on the Hack? ensack River, near Cherry Hill, when the tornado struck. He got out of the boat and attempted to reach the outskirts of the woods, but a falling tree struck him and severely Injured his spine and bead. His friends put him Into a boat and rowed him to Hackensack, where he lives. ONE DEATH IN PLAJNFIELD. aha* SUSAN R. VANWINKLE OAVK WAT UNDER "TRIOHT AND SHOCK-HAILSTORMS WROUGHT HAVOC. The terrific ?storm that plunged upon Plaln B*M Saturday afternoon is responsible for one death that occurred in that '-':, early Sunday morning. Ne/ver before have the people of the city been so terrified as they were when the skies blackened on Saturday and the tempest of hailstones was driven upon the town by the tornado that generated its force west of the town and beyond the Watchung Mountains. *fhn Irrst Impulse of those who saw the storm's approach was to close doors and windows, and this was? what Misa Susan R. Vanwinkle did. Miss Vanwinkle was an only daughter of Jacob R. Vanwinkle, of Elm Place. The recent death of a favorite niece was a severe ?hock to her nervous system, and the terrifying influence of Saturday's storm wss too severe a strain for her to withstand. When Miss Vanwinkle went to ?lote a window looking out upon Elm Place, she *m9f ?? *--???*? Mm frantle by the stinging hail staaaa, plunglag and rearing in the roadway.

Grant, who was In ? horsecar during the downpour. Chief Grant | said that the hail came down with appalling j force, almost destroying the roof of the car. Patrolman Patrick Kte!y. who sought sh<M- : ter under a wooden awning during the astonish? ing avalanche. In corroborating tho statem?*nt of hi? superior officer, said that before he was ; able to get under cover he was struck by sev- | eral hailstones, each of which was as large or larger than a horse-chestnut. A local merchant. In summing up the situa? tion to the reporter, said: "It was the severest storm of the kind that I ever saw In this town, ?nd I have lived here for nearly the allotted threescore years and ten." RECOVERING IN HARLEM. GLAZIERS ANI? CARPENTERS REAP A HARVEST -AN pNTKRI'RISINQ DOATKEEPER. Harlem spent much of the day yesterday re? covering from the storm. There had been only a temporary patching up of broken windows, skylights and broken signs Saturday night, but yesterday the people had a chance to get to work In earnest. Glaziers worked overtime, and received round sums for so doing. Carpenters were hammering, sawing and nailing all day and In the afternoon the upper part of the city began to look as It usually does. The Department of Street Cleaning sent men / ?. K out In gangs wllh saws. It was a subject of wonder at first, what mm armed with such Implements were going to do in the way of street-cleaning, until they were seen to climb trees and saw off dangling limbs, which were tossed Into convenient carts and taken away along with the leaves and twigs strewn by the winds of Saturday. By neon the most of the obstruction*? to travel had been got out of the way In n'l the principal streets. Over the Harlem. In some of the less-favored thoroughfares, servants swept the leaves and liroken boughs Into great piles, and set lire to them, which was a source of pleasure to the small boy. A man who rents boats on the Harlem River near the Harlem (Thlrd-ave.) bridge, displayed ! the following algn yesterday: I HAVE IS bOTES ? HERE : DRIFED DOWN S?t. OWNBRSH CANHAVE THEM ?

In the town of Jamaica. Queens County, attracted thousands upon thousands of sightseers yesterday. The throngs looked at the broken trees and littered street? and the word torna?lo had a new mean? ing to them; their eye? t?ok In the dismantled big brick school building, and for the nr?t time in their Uves, perhaps, they had an adequate conception of the power of ? whirlwind. All day long yesterday throngs walked ?lowly about the i.firiKivf. 1,'iST nv THF nnrKuvAT road?thf. nfivn? imnni. partially blockaded streets picking up fragment? of glass or furniture as mementos, while wealthier people in carriages had their horses led through the thoroughfares by special police? men, whose hardest eff<irts were required to keep the streets open and the people moving. A tor? nad) practically within city limits, with all the evidences of Its terrible power fresh at hand, was a great novelty, and coming so near to a pleasant Sunday as It did. It gave Woodhaven the appearance of a big fair ground. The crowd grew quiet when it passed the Petrequin cottage, in the Rockaway road, near Thlrd-st. There wa? crape on the door, and In? side was the silent form cf Mrs. Louise Petre? quin, only sixteen years old. "The baby would have come In August." said a palefaeed matron to her friend, "and Louise had all the clothe? made for it. poor thing." This and other pathetic features made the slow-mov ?ng procession a solemn one. Relief work for those made destitute by Saturday's disaster was be? gun early yesterday, and was carried on In a novel and successful manner nil day. Between the wrecked echoolhouse and the Schefrler blacksmith shop, which, by the way. looked more like a heap of kindling wood than anything else. the ?chool trustees of Woodhaven, under direc? tion of John B. Merrill, the lawyer, constructed a small platform, and In front of this, on a beer keg, wa? placed a big empty paint keg which served the purpore of a contribution box. Even one's attention was directed to this, and all were asked to contribute toward the help of the suf? ferers. The appeal met a generous response. Soon the bottom of the keg wa? hidden by bill? and silver. By 3 o'clock It wa? half full, and before 7 o'clock last n!ght It was filed to overflowing with bills ranging from 110 down and coin of almost every denomination. Then Messrs. Merrill William F. Buckley, Charles Schnster and the cashier of the Woodhaven Bank carried the precious little barrel down to the bank and counted its contents, which were found to amount to $852. * Last night a regular Relief Committee was appointed, and It is safe to say there will be little actual suffering for the present, on ac? count of the devaatation wrought so suddenly on Saturday afternoon. The Jamaica Town Board will. It is said. meet to-day ?nd devise means for relieving a number of families whose entire belongings w??re whirled away in a twinkling. The Town Board Is composed of the following: William E. Everest. Supervisor; John B. McCook, Town Clerk; Abram Wyckoff. Superintendent of Poor, and Justice? Stephen H. Lott. Hendrlck Hendrickson, Maynard P. Kl??am and George Lester. V.U. BALL'S GENEROUS OFKKU. Superintendent Ball, of Lalance & Qrosjesn's agate-ware factory, which furnishes employ, ment to more than half the mala population of the village, offered to provide temporary homes for all who applied to him. There ar? ?bout two hundred French families in Woodhaven, the men I of which work for Lalance A Orosjean. The village 1? a clean an<l thrifty little neighbor- | hood, nearly all the houses demolished belonging , t?> the families which occupied them.

It might be remarked, parenthetically, that It was nnt any dryer yeaterday than It has been on the two Sundays previous. There was no de? viation from the cour.?e marked out by the police, and as a result saloons were closed. The buffet and leather rooms In the big uptown hotels were also closed, anl ?o tar as could he seen the law was enforced yesterday In Just about the same manner as It wa? on the previous Sundays.

The question wan raised last week by a Park Row saloon-keeper nimed Qiilnlan, who wanted to keep his place open on Sunday and said that he would se.l nothing but soft ?Irinks. The question wa? lal?l before the city magistrates, and some of the:n were inclined to think that he cou',,1 k?.ep open on Sun? day If he wished, provided nothing was sold over hi? bar except eof? ?lrlnks. The police did not con? strue It so, and Intimate,! that they knew he would sell other than harmless heversges if he wa? al ?lowed to keep open.

A close observer at one of these pla< <-'s In COlOSS bu?-ave. MtlOOd the following mode of procedure: First, the lucky man knocked thr.?e time? on the front window of the saloon.

Not long afterward he came out In the same precipitous manner, but he looked very much happier an?l mere latlsfled than when he went In. All this went to prove that the lucky man had been post.-il the nigh: before?. Ar Interesting case was that of John I.evlne, who was arrested at noon while stsndlng In front of his -aloon, at Nlnety-thlrd-st. and (',.'

"We are < losed to-day," he said. The bar, however, was not covered, and when the polh-eman ?aw how matters stood he arrested I.evlne ami took him to the station. There he was he|,| for violating the Excise law by exposing his bar. He gsve ball and was released, lie says that he means to find out if there is any law to prevent a man from atandlng In front of his ?tore, when there Is no pretence of doing business. The case will come up In the Harlem Police Court to-day, when the Msglstrate will have this point to decide. There were seversl other srrests In this precinct, but the men were apparently selling, snd sn entrance wss effected by men new In the precinct, who hsd been sent from other precincts for this work. The place of James A.
