HIT KULS ONE OF 13 Lay on Launch's Bottom, Be tween Two Men. as He Died. MERRY TRIP'S TRAGIC END Companions of Stricken Man Felt His Body Stiffen as Thunder Crashed. Thirteen members of "The Jolly Bunch," one of the social dubs that abound on Che East Side, hired a launch yesterday and went merrily up the Hud son. Charles Herbert, of No. 130 Leroy street, was one of them, and. because he had relatives at Hasting?, they headed for that village. The launch went along all right until it was off Dobbs Ferry at ." o'clock, when a heavy squall, with thunder and lightning, came up over the Palisades. Some of the party wanted the skipper to put into th« shore there, but Herbert said they were all in for a wetting any way, and to keep on for Hastings. He and "Jack" Grout and "Bill" Nutly. jLwo^othexs#«*f- lh « . party. lay., on the bot tom of the launch, covered by a strip of canvas, and the others sought what shelter the craft afforded. A moment before an unusually loud peal of thunder Grout and Nutly felt a peculiar stiffening of Herbert's body. It seemed, to be rigid and heavy, and they tore off the canvas to see what .was wrong. They had felt a ticklish sensa tion they couldn't account for. They took Herbert's clothes off, and some one found a black spot on th* back of his neck, where his collar but ton had pressed against his neck. On the soles of his feet were many tiny marks, set in order, as the nails In a shoe are placed. The lightning, it seemed, had snatched him from the party as its prey, leaving untouched the men on either side. They pat into Hastings quickly and called for doctors. But there was noth ing t» be done, save to get Coroner lies of WesT Cheater and take the body away. The PBBt of the party, stunned, came silently back to town by train. The dead man was a clerk in an in surant .ompany and liv^d with his pa rents and a brother at No. 77 Morton street. Yesterday the family moved to No. 11'u Leroy street, and Herbert's mother tried to get him to remain at home and help them to get moved; but he ignored her request and went instead on the trip that resulted in his death.

ESTRADA AGAIN VICTOR Maclriz's Forces Repulsed and 200 Prisoners Taken. MANY KILLED IN ASSAULT Custom House Removed to Blue fields — American Gunboat Clears for Action. Bluefields, Nicaragua, May HO.—Gen eral Lara, commander of the Madriz forces, again attacked General Estrada's positions yesterday. About 3 o'clock in the morning he began an assault on Es trada's left flank with five hundred men. but after hard fighting, in which many were killed and wounded, the Madriz troops were forced to retire. Estrada's losses were light. About the same time an assault was begun on the extreme south flank, but this. too. failed, there being further heavy losses to* Lara's men. Estrada succeeded in capturing a large number of prisoners, who report that General Lara is convinced that it will be impos sible to take the intrenchments of the provisionals. The port of Bluefields has bepn offi cially changed by the provisional gov ernment from the bluff to a point three miles up tiie Eseondido River, and the custom house has been officially re moved to the city of Bluefields. The. representatives of Madriz. however, who now hold the bluff, claim the right to stop all vessels going in and out of the harbor for the purpose of collecting duties. This has complicated the situa tion, and it is understood that a ruling of the State Department of the Ameri can government, regarding to whom du ties shall be paid, is awaited. The Madriz steamer Venus has not been permitted to bombard the trenches back of Bluefields. Thfs would ha"c made firing over the city necessary, and following the order to prevent such ac tion by the commander of »he United States ship Pudacah, the American gun boat prepared for action, although the necessity for this did not arise. A force of I'nited States marines is expected to arrive h°re soon, and as the sitpation is critical their presence if- greatly needed. There are rumors current that the Bluff was lost to Es trada through treachery, and the taking of this strong position by the Madriz forces has materially lessened Estrada's chances of success.

May SO. — Severe fighting between the troops of President Madriz and those of Estrada occurred early this morning near Biueflelds, according to a message from United States Consul Mof fat there.
