General Has Been Killed.

VAN SCHAICK IN FIGHT.
New York Broker Sinks to Mud with
Trespassing Clammer.
John B. Van Schaick, a Wall Street broker.
had an exciting experience a week ago yesterday
which has Just become known. He and George
Hickey. a clam digger, wallowed in the mud of a
mill pond that Van Schaick claims to own. The
clamraer, who was thrown into the mud by Van
Schaick, it is alleged, bekauso he would not sur
render the clams he had dug from the disputed
territory, threatens to bring suit for assault, and
Van Schaick has caused his lawyer to Institute
two trespass suits, which aro to be trfed to
morrow.
Van Schaick has a beautiful home In Hunting
ton, Long Island. Recently he has acquired con
siderable land there, having great faith In Long
Island property. What has long been known as
LefTert's mill pond is new claimed by Mr. Van
Schaick. Heretofore there has been no com
plaint when clammers waded out into the pond,
after the wßter had been expelled In turning the
mill wheel, to fill their baskets with clams. But
wh«n, last Sunday, Van Schalr' saw Walter
Doolittle, Archibald Ott and William Van Sise
digging clams, he ordered them off and brought
trespass suits, placing the damage at $25 In each
case.
"It takes a power of clams to be worth $26."
said an old salt when he heard of the amount.
Then Mr. Van Schaick found George Hickey
and others clamming in his pond. He obtained a
boat and rowed out to the shoal water where the
clammers were "fingering" the clams from the
mud. Van- Schaick demanded the clams, and Is
said to have been laughed at. Suddenly Hickey
was floundering In the soft mud. But he did not
go down alone. His muddy hands clutched Van
Schalok's spotless vest, and Van Schaick is said
to have come a header out of the boat and to
have been as mired as Hickey when he rose
sputtering to the surface.

BIG STRIKE IN FRISCO.
Sixteen Hundred Laborers on Street
Railways to Quit.
(By Telegraph to The Tribune. I
San Francisco. July 29. — One of the most seri
ous strikes that the city has had since the fire
will ocour to-morrow morning, when 1,600 un
skilled laborers employed by the United Rail
roads will quit work. This will stop all recon
struction work on the street railroads, as the
leaders declare they will prevent any one from
working, and previous experience has shown
that the city authorities will give no aid In
stopping violence.
This strike is the result of efforts of labor
unions to form a union of those Ignorant, un
skilled laborers, a large part of whom are Greeks
and Italians, who cannot speak a word of Eng
lish and whose living expenses are less than 50
cents a day. About one thousand of these men
belong to labor unions formed during the last
two weeks.
The United Railroads discharged about one
hundred employes who were annoying the men
who were not in the union. The union de
manded the reinstatement of these men, which
was refused. The organisation then demanded
not only restoration but the unionizing of the
whole force and an advance In pay or it would
call out the whole gang. It demanded $2 50 for
unskilled labor and $3 90 for pavers for eight
hours. Unskilled laborers had been getting from
$1 90 to $2 and pavers $2 50 for ten hours. The
United Railroads will refuse any terms. stop

In awarding the Glidden trophy the committee
gave equal credit to all cars completing the tour

DAY'S DROWNINGS FOURTEEN
Eight Lost from Sloops Capsized at Bar Off Angle
sea, N. J., in Heavy Sea.
DANGEROUS RESCUE MADE JUST IN TIME
Survivors Fought (or Life in Tangle of Nets- Brooklyn Young Man and
Angles**, N. J.. July 29.-Two yachts coming
In from the fishing banks capsized on Hereford
Inlet Bar, off here to-day, and so far as can be
ascertained to-night, eight persons lost their
lives. Tht c were thirty-two persons on one
yacht, of whom seven were lost, and twelve on
the other, all but one of whom were saved. That
not more fell victims to the rough sea was due
to the heroism of Captain Henry S. L-udlam. of
the Hereford Inlet Lifesavlng . Station, and a
crew of five men. It was *at first thought that
from fourteen to twenty-eight persons had been
lost, but after an Investigation the coroner to
night said that he believed only eight were lost.
His list is as follows: .

Anglesea is one- of the favorite fishing places
along the southern New Jersey coast, and "has
seldom had a busier Sunday than to-day. Every
excursion train from Philadelphia and other
nearby points came down crowded with visitors,
most of whom Intended spending the day In
fishing. The weather in the morning was ideal,
and all the fishing boats took out large crowds
to the banks. After noon, however, a brisk
breeze sprang up. and the captains of the small
craft hoisted sail and started for home. Most
of the fleet got In without mishap, although
some of them had considerable difficulty in
clearing the Hereford bar. 0 .
DRIVEN IN BY WEATHER.
The two thai got into trouble were the sloop
yacht Nora, which had on board Captain Her
bert Shivers, his mate and thirty passengers, and
the sloop Alvin 8.. with a party of twelve. The
Nora had gone to the fishing banks at Five
Fathom Bank, about ten miles out. early in
the day.
When the wind began to freshen Captain
Shivers decided it was time to make port, and
with the assistance of a small gasolene engine
and a good spread of canvas he made good time
toward Anglesea. As the sloop bowled along
the wind was getting stlffer and the sea rougher.
Captain Shivers, from long experience, knew
how treacherous the Hereford Bar Is. and ap
proached -It with his usual caution. Th* sand
obstruction Is about a mile from shore.
Just as he was about to go over It a heavy
squall struck the Nora. Despite the efforts of
the captain the craft heeled over and was hit by
a huge wave. The wind and the wave coming
together were more than the yacht could stand,
and It turned completely over, throwing the
thirty-two occupants into the sea. As the boat
turned over the mast snapped like a reed. There
was a loud cry. which was quickly silenced when
nearly all the victims disappeared beneath th»
water. The heavy sea probably was responsible
for the saving of most of the survivors, as the
upturned yacht was tossed about, uncovering the
struggling persons underneath. As many as
could reached the keel, but It was a difficult
matter, as there was an Indescribable rangle of
fishing nets, lines, baskets and sail. There was
no time to give aid. as It was all the struggling
men could do to keep their heads above water.
RESCUERS BARELY SAVE FOUR.
One boy. however. Frederick Fisher, fifteen
years old. who was found struggling near the
boat, was lifted upon the upturned keel by two
men who had tight grips on the vessel. In the
unequal fight against the elements the strug
gling men disappeared one by one. After the
survivors had clung to the boat for nearly an
hour, when hope of rescue was almost aban
doned, a government lifeboat, commanded i>y
Captain Henry S. Ludlam. of the Hereford Inl«t
Life Saving Station, hove in sight. As he came
near he 6houted encouragement to the men cling
ing to the Nora. and. afte come manoeuvring,
managed to get close to the capsized vessel.
He was not a moment too soon, for as he came
within a boat's length of the Nora, four men.
weakened by the exposure-, let go and began
floating away. Captain Ludlam threw his boat
around, and the four half drowned men were
drawn out of the water. Then, at the risk of
their own lives, the rescuers went after the other
men and pulled them into their bont The rescue
was most perilous, as the rough sea was con
stanMy pounding the lifeboat against the keel
of the yacht.
A few minutes after th<> last man was taken
from the wreck the sloop yacht Violet. Captain
LJlley. came up and the survivors were trans
ferred to her and taken ashore. Captain Ludlam
remained near the bar in the hope of finding the
bodies of some of the victims, but saw none.
While this scene was boing enacted there was
much excitement on shore. Residents from
Wlldwood and Holly Beach came flocking to
Anglesea and there was a large crowd at ihs
fishing pier wh»n the Violet came In with the
victims. Some of them were so exhausted that
they required medical aid and were taken to th»
Hereford Life Saving Station, where physician?
were summoned to attend them. All of th«
rescued were- able to leave for their homes to
night.
SECOND BOAT CAPSIZES.
Shortly after the survivors of the Nora were
brought ashore another yacht, the Alvin 8.. was
seen to capsize about a mile above the place
where the Nora went over. There were several
boats near at the time and all but one person
was saved. The Alvin B. was owned by K. 1..
Hallman, a lawyer, of Pottsvllle. Perm. He and
a party of friends were on board at the time.
, One of the survivors of the Nora said to-night
that had It not been for the prompt assistance
of Captain Ludlam and hi* crew every person
on board would probably have been drowned.
He said that when the Nora overturned It was
everybody for himself. There was a great
tangle of fishing lines and nets, and it was no
doubt due to this that so many were unable to
reach the capsized boat.
Captain Ludlam is the hero of Five Mile Beach
