Several windows in the New-Amsterdam Bank. at the northwest corner of Forty-seventh-st. ar.Q Third-aye., were broken by the force of the explosion, and the steps of the elevated railroad station at that pcint were set on fire. The automobile was in charge of John Seck *r=on. in the employ of Mr. De-Witt. The ma chine had been out of repair, and th(» gasolena ti.nk leaked badly. Seckerson was told to take »he machine from the coal depot at Forty- Tiinth-su and the East River to a repair shop. He ran the machine west in Forty-ninth-st. to Third -eve. and then south. At Forty-seventh kt. the machine worked badly, and he turned it west in Forty-Eeventh-sU bringing it to a etop rt^ar the curb, and just outside of the tank. He jumped from the machine and stooped down to learn the cause of the trouble. He saw li Jet of flame corning from the gasolene tank, and jumped back. In a minute the fiarrf hud reached the box, and the automobile was en v«>ioped in fire. Toomey. who was near by. sounded an alarm. At the same time. Vandenbergh. the janitor of tae BBS* building, pushed the automobile out into the middle of the driveway. He was nearly l.u-ned in doing so. Dr. Kamsdell, of the Fire Apartment, says that the machine then started forward, then backed, and pitched for ward strain. It finally came to a standstill near the middle of the street. When the firemen ar rived Engine No. -1 stopped at a hydrant in front of the bank building. Hand grenades v.ere .rown at the machine, but they did not extinguish the flames. The firemen then at tached a hose to the engine and started to play on the burning machine. Three or four hundred persons had gathered, and. as the police reserves from the East Fifty firPt-st- station had not arrived, they crowded in close to the machine. The water had only been playing on the burning automobile about two minutes when there was a sudden puff of smoke and a loud report. The gasolene tank bad exploded.

The loss of one life, the injury of several per sons and the destruction of property of much value were caused yesterday afternoon by a fire and explosion of oil tanks In the New-York Central's yards at Melrose. The excitement was intense in that part of the city, and for a time an enormous destruction of life and property was feared. One man, Joseph Careno, an Ital ian laborer, was struck by fragments of a car and died while being carried to an ambulance. The injured are: CALAJIRAN. Captain Daniel. Engine Company No. 41. ■truck on cheat by blazing fragment of car; clothing set afire; able to resume duty. COLLINS, Jewell, superintendent of gas works, severely burned; went home. STOKER, Leonard, electrician. shoulSer dislocated by timber from car: pent to Lebanon Hospital. ■WAGNER. Frederick, machinist, severely burned; went home. WETLrtI. John, machinist, severely burned and partly burled under fragments of car, in dangerou* condition aX Lebanon Hospital. The yards extend from One-hundred-and-for ty-ninth-st. to One-hundred-and-sixty-flrst-r| , and many cars are usually stalled on the fifteen parallel tracks there. At One-hundred-and-flf ty-fifth-st are the works of the Pintsch Gas Compressing: Company, at which gas is manu factured from oil and compressed into tanks of cars which use the Pintsch light. Oil tanks mounted on flatcars were stalled yesterday on a track near the gas plant, and in line with sev eral email shops of the railroad company. The fire started in some barrels of hydro-carbolene standing near the generating house of the gas works. It was discovered at 12:15 p. m. More than one hundred men were employed in the buildings near by. While the firemen and workmen were trying to extinguish the flames at the gas works an ell tank on a flatcar near the works suddenly exploded, scattering burning oil far and wide. Fragments of the car were hurled three hun dred feet, and one of the fragments crushed the skull of Careno, who was at One-hundred-and fifty-fourth-st- The expioslon of the first oil tank was fol lowed by others, and the spectacle presented aa one oil tank after another blew up was remark able. The men at work fled in panic as the blaze spread to the small shops. Several of these shops were entirely destroyed, and at one time It appeared as if the big machine shop would go. too, but by strenuous efforts the firemen managed to save it_ As soon as Inspector Titus heard of the mag nitude of the blaze he ordered out the police re serves from all The Bronx precincts, and took personal charge himself. The police were kept busy in keeping the crowds of sightseers away from the danger zone. The fire was one of in tens« heat, and this was additional trouble to the firemen. Acting Chief Purroy paid that the blaze was one of the fiercest in his lons experi ence. The fire practically burned itself out in about two hours, although engines remained and played on the debris for some time afterward. The losses were variously estimated at from £40,000 to $200,000. At one time a roundhouse in which are stored several locomotives was threatened. The explosions caused much dam age to window glass in the neighborhood, and it is estimated that glass worth fully $2,000 was broken. At the office of the division superintendent at the Grand Central Station it was? said there had been no delay in trains, and that the Twentieth Century Limited started on its regular time. IM." i. m. The Pullman Car Company reported that it had suffered no loss because of the fire. Vice-President Dixon. of the Pintsch Gas Compression Company, at No. MO Broadway, said that the eas works would be in complete operation again at night. The work of remov ing the debris ,bepan last evening, men loading it on flat cars for transportation to West Al bany. STEAMSHIP AND TRAIN RACE FOR BOY. Father Has Him on Vessel.

AND MORRIS-AYE. FIGHT ON "CAR AHEAD." Motorman and Conductor Beat Pas sengers Who Refuse to Pay Fares. TRANSFERS WERE NOT GIVEN. The car ahead nuisance was the direct cause of a lively fight at Ninth-aye. and Fifty-ntnth st.. in which two passengers were badly mauled by the conductor and motorman of a Columbus ave. car last night. The passengers, Samuel H. Adams, of No. £131 Broadway, and Philip L. Miller, of No. ;-MG West Seventy-lirst-st., both describing them selves as publishers, had gone north on a Ninth ave. surface car. At Flfty-fourth-st. the pas sengers were told to take the cur ahead. It :s the practice on this line to give transfers, which are collected by the conductor of the car ahead. Adams and Miller say they did not receive such transfer?, and so informed the conductor of the Columbus-aye. car to which tlioy trans ferred. The conductor demanded fares, which Adams and Miller refused to pay. At Fifty-ninth-st. the car was stopped and the conductor and motorman set out to expel the two passengers from the car. Miller had a tennis racquet in his hand and Adams had a roll of manuscript. Miller's racquet was snatched from him by the conductor, who threw him to the ground and be labored him with the racquet. Adams mean while was having a bad time at the hands of the motorman, who used his brass controller with much effect. Things were In this? condition when a patrol man came along and stopped the fight, which had caused a large crowd to Rather, lie in quired what was the matter, and the conductor said he wished to make a charge of assault against Miller and Adams, and promised to go to the station and do so. So the policeman went ahead with the two men, taking- them to the West Forty-seventh-st. station. The conductor, however, did not appear, so Adams and Miller were permitted to ro. They have the number of the car from which they were ejected, and vowed last night not to let the affair rest. INSURGENTS ARE FI RM . EUberg, 'Bracket t and Broun Prom ise to Keep l T p the Fight. With much cheering and singing: the York ville Republican Club of the insurgent XXIXth gave a dinner for its 'insurgent Senator." Na thaniel E. Elsberg :md his colleagues, Edgar T. Bracken an.J Elon K. Brown, at the Savoy Hotel last nipht Instead of being patient un der the rod, the "insurgents" were decidedly de fiant, and pugnaciously reiterated their intent to ••go and do it again." This sentiment was wild ly api'lauded. The speakers, besides the three Senators, were Robert Fulton Cutting, Bainbridge Colby and Edward Lauterbach. All expressed the highest appreciation of Senator Els berg's work at Al bany, and his motives In making: the "bolt." Telegrams of regret, highly complimenting Senator Elsberg from Governor Odeil, George L. Rives and Robert W. De Forest, were read. Senator Elsberg, when finally ahte to make himself heard above the applause, said: I have made the average man's mistakes and slips and ii.iv- taken the average man's falls, but I am happy to have my friends believe that 1 have been honest in what 1 have done. Ami as long: as I have that I don't care for my enemies, x am Koing to keep on righting wrong wherever I find it. When a man is elected to office, aside from the obligations imposed on htm by his party, be has obligations to the great mass of people. Irrespective of party. 1 don't believe that there Is something peculiar about party politics which takes prece dence of the ordinary principles of legislation. I'm going to continue to represent the people who elect ed me— inadequately. Inefficiently, perhaps, but with the real intent to do the best in me. Senator Brackett, after affirming his belief in the necessity for a "machine," said: A head the machine must surely have But does this necessity of a head to the machine imply that the person temporarily selected is at once endowed with all the attributes of infallibility? Is the heart of the machine to be permitted to become a Chinese Joss to be blindly worshipped, although Irrespon sible, unreasonable and unanswcrlng. _ Out upon a creed that would answer in the affirmative. Such doctrine has no place "i the Republican party, and the sooner it is driven back into the selfish blackness from which It came the better for the party, the better for the country. Ib there then no middle course? Is it such a machine, or party anarchy? Must men who be lieve In the principles of party, who are zealous In its service, burning to further Its doctrines and to continue Its ascendency in State and nation, but who still decline approval of autocratic party gov ernment, must these men hold their peace at the risk of being declared outside the party lines. I am aware that In some circles the expression of an opinion with respect to so much as the ap pointment of a notary public, until the boss has spoken, la regarded as party irregularity, and^ the author of the opinion is at once branded as getting "red headed." and unable to agree with any one; hut I want to say to -ou that such notions are not indicative of party 'health, nor do they augur well for party success. Ido not believe that the standards of Republicanism should be fixed by a few. but by the majority. Senator Kroun said of Senator Ehsberg: •Every measure designed to rot. the public trsacury, t.. plunder the people of the franchises which are their common property, or to pander to vice or crime and iob the State of its good name has recognixed In nim from the tir ? an uncompromising and invincible toe. mh 0.-cult Influence may have pushed it forward.

HMC First across the finish line, and a winner by 14 minutes 43 seconds. That is the maiden record of Herreshoff's latest ninety foot sloop yacht in her first race against the Columbia. The contest was sailed yesterday over a twenty five m ; le course on Long Island Sound, one-third of the distance being covered in the lightest kinds of airs that could scarcely be dignified by the name of breezes, and two-thirds in a fresh and steady breeze that put le3 rails under at times and sent both yachts along in the smooth water at ten knots and better. The Columbia waa beaten 'J4 seconds for every mile sailed. While It may be said that in some early por tions of the race the Reliance was favored by the fiuky airs prevailing, when it came to a breeze of an equnl strength for both she still continued to gain, and .it no time did the Co lumbia seem able to cope with her. Her gains were so decided in each case that it leaves no room for doubt as to which is the faster boat, at least under the conditions encountered yester day. What the yacht will do in a heavy pea and a light breeze or in a fifteen mile thrash to wind ward outside Sandy Hook remains to be seen, but confidence in the Reliance was firmly es tabUshed in the minds of those who watched her every move yesterday, and according: to a con servative estimate three thousand persons. largely yachtsmen, saw the race from the decks of the large fleet of yachts accompanying the two racers. The Reliance under way from her moor ings off New-Rochelle at 10:l<> a. m., standing across the Sound under the influence of a light air from the southwest. When she reached the middle of the Sound, the wind shifted to the southeast and became a little stronger. She was dressed in a complete suit of Herreshoff sails. All of them fitted admirably, with the exception of the jib. which was loose in the leach. The mainsail was the largest she has yet worn. On board the Reliance with C. Oliver Ipelin were Herbert C. Leeds. Newberry Thome. Wood bury Kane, William Butler Duncan, jr., and Dr. Monahan. Captain Charles Barr was at the helm. Just before the start Captain "Nat" Herreshoff stepped on board. He remained for the race. The sails of the Columbia set perfectly. Over a smaller mainsail than she his been wearing a big Ratsey clubtopsall of diagonal cloth was se t . The sail was of the yellowish hue charac teristic of the Ratsey canvas. The headsalls both set well. She got under way from her n.oorings at Glen Cove at 11:15, and was towed out into the Sound by E. D. Morgan's fast steam launch Vanish. A large fleet of steam yachts, each having Its quota of guests of the owner on board, accom panied the racers over the course. Among them were Commodore F. C. Bourne's Delaware, the flagship of the New-York Yacht Club; August Belmont's Scout, Adrian Iselin's Surf, Captain "Nat" Herreshoffs Roamer, J. Roger Maxwell's Celt, R. A. C. Smith's Privateer and the schoon er yachts Muriel, Emerald and Monlmla. The steamer Sirius carried the club members. Flying the flag of the regatta committee, the steam yacht Privateer, owned by R. A. C. Smith, anchored off the starting point at noon and hoisted the code flag "J," signifying that the start was to be postponed until later in the day. After a long wait for a breeze the preliminary signal was hoisted at 1:25. Five minutes later the tug Unique, in charge of Captain Neils Ol sen. started to log off the course, which had been announced by signal as No. 3. This was from the starting point east by north '.; north 11 miles, thence west-northwest 3 miles, then southwest by west M west 11 miles to the fin ish. 25 miles in all. Fifteen minutes elapsed before the preparatory signal was given, and fifteen minutes later, or at 1:55. the starting gun was fired. Both yachts had been manoeu vring for a good berth at the line. There was a light air from about southwest by south when the starting signal was given. Four minutes before the signal Uoth yachts were ap proaching the line from the north on the star board tack, with sheets eased a bit. Captain Barr had worked the Reliance into the lead by several lengths. With mainsail, club topsail and jib Bet, and with her balloon Jib topsail in stops Continued on page four.

One Prisoner Probably Fatally Hurt — T-vco Guards Shot. BOTH MEN CAUGHT IN HOT CHASE. A desperate attempt at Jail breaking was made at the Hudson County Penitentiary at Snake Hill, a few miles from Jersey City, yes terday, with the result that Michael Walsh, en gineer; Edward Tanner, a keeper, and Charles Austel, a prisoner, are in the hospital. Walsh and Tanner were struck on the head with a piece of iron pipe by Roy Carroll, a prisoner. Walsh's and Tanner's injuries are slight. Austel was shot in the back by a guard and may die. It Is not known who fired the bullet that struck him. as half a dozen guards were firing at the same time. Apparently there was concerted ac tion between Austel and Carroll, but, so far as can be learned, no other prisoners were in the plot. The clash for liberty was made about 11 o'clock. The prisoners at the penitentiary are employed in getting out stone from the quarry at the back of the prison. Austel, who had previously nurle an attempt to escape, wore a ball and chain. He managed in some way to break the chain, and started to run. Walsh, who was in charge of an engine that operates a stone crusher, saw him, made a Jump for his Winchester rifle, :ind waa about to bring the gun to his shoulder when Carroll, who was working at the crusher, knocked Wal«h down with a piece of iron pipe about throe f«»et Ion?. As Walsh fell Carroll shouted U> Austel to run faster. Then he started 'or the meadows along the Hackensack River. Tanner, the keeper, at once g&.ve the alarm, and he and three guards at once started in pursuit. Tanner overtook Carroll, but was struck on the head with the pipe, which the prisoner sti'.l carried. At the same moment Charles Staats. a colored prisoner, .seized Carroll and succeeded in wrenching the pipe from his grasp. Tanner, who had suffered only a scalp wound, left Staats to deal with Carroll, and started after Austel. Canal suc ceeded In breaking away from Staats and con tinued his flittht. As he passed the hut of Frank Herben. the river guard, who was then at the penitentiary. he saw Herben's rifle leaning against the door post. Snatching the rifle, he kept or his way and succeeded in reaching the high grass on the meadows. Then he turned and fired sev eral shots at the guards, who were on the hill side, but who. being nearer to Austel. were de voting their efforts to capturing him first. They fired several volleys at Austel, and one or" the bullets struck him in the ba< k. He fell to the ground and was at once removed to the peni tentiary hospital, where it was found that the bullet had lodged near the spine, inflicting what is likely to prove a fatal injury. The guards then renewed the pursuit of Car roll, and fired several shots at clumps of grass in which it was thought he might be concealed. Twice he returned their shots, but without hit ting any one. Warden Crimes telephoned to Sheriff Zeller and Judge Blair. Kach sent a posse of six men to aid the penitentiary guards. They surrounded Carroll in a dense part of the swamp about a mile from the penitentiary. When he saw the force arrayed against him he threw down his rifle, raised his hands above his head, and surrendered. He was taken back to the penitentiary and placed in solitary confine ment. Carroll had been sentenced to a year for robbery' and had served three months. Austel was serving a similar sentence and would have been released in August. Both men will be ar raigned at the completion of their sentences and charged with Jail breaking, the penalty for which is one year's imprisonment In the peni tentiary. SHOOT DOG, SAYS WILL.
