Tho steamboat Grand Republic In place
of plying between Rockaway and this city aa
usual wo yesterday chartered by Henry Ward
Beechsr to take tho children of Plymouth
Church Sunday School and their friend on
their annual excursion Ions Island In the
Hudson near Ftoksklll has usually been the
destination of the excursion but this
year Cold Spring L I was aslooted
as the picnic ground The Grand Republic
brilliant with bunting and with music on board
steamed from Jewella Dock Brooklyn at
about 0 A M with nearly 3000 children on her
decks and Inbe saloons and at least half 1
many more adults Among the latter were
Henry Ward Beecher Mrs Boeoher the Rev
Edward Beeoher and family the Roy 8 B
Halllday and family and the pillars of Ply
mouth Church generally After r day at Cold
Spring the steamboat crowded with her 3000
pleasure seekers returned arriving at Jewulls
Dook at about C P M It took nearly an hour
to land all the passengers and then the Grand
Republic sat out for her dock at the foot of
West Twentyfourth street this city
The Adelaide belonging to Martin A Co 51
Liberty street made her usual excursion
to the Iron pier at Long Branch yea
terday with several hundred passenger
on board On her return she started
from Long Branch at 4K P M arriving
at the Battery shortly altar oolook She mad
her usual atopa at her different landings up the
North River and landed her last passengers
at the font ot West Twentysecond street about
an hour later She then turned around and pre
pared to steam down the river nnd crons overto
her coaling station At the foot of Hudson street
Jersey City to bike In I supply of coal prepara
tory tn her trip to Lone Branch today Two
bootblacks belonging to the bout and several
of the crew got off at Twentysecond street so
that there were only eighteen person on board
when the vessel started on the trip down
stream As she left the dock the two firemen
reported to the assistant nglneer James E
line that there was just enoucb fire In the fur
naces to carry thn boat to the coaling eta
lon and wash out the boilers afterward
They then came on deck leaving Rae at his
post In the engine room Tho Chief Engineer
108 Crouther followed them and shut the door
leading from the engine room to the store
room so that Rae was enclosed on nil sides
The only other persons below were Frank
Strauh Straub the bartender and his assistant George
The Adelaide Rmed down the eat aide 01
the river to avoid thixebbtide Intxndlnetncrnrs
over at Cortlandt Street which Is nearly oppo
site t the coaling station on the other aide of the
The Grand Republic wa now off Spring
street heading up the river at the rate she had
carried her 3000 passengers up and down
Long Island tlssenlera about 7S P
M DI The Adelaide bad all her lamps
burning according to law but as It was
ali nearly aa light an at midday the Grand He
public had not llghlnd hers When both ves
sels neared Leroy street It Is Raid liv eyewit
losses who were on shore the Adelaide sud
denly veered to tho right as though about to
cross the river In so doing she presented hi < r
broadside to the Grnnd Republic The confused
sound of bells rlnclnc on both vessels was
heard semI then the Grand Republic although
It visibly slowed up crashed Into the Adelaide
nn the port side just forward of the wheel
Notwithstanding hvr moderated speed she cut
through tho Adelaides guards and her bow
baa penetrated Into the heart of tha ship
knocking out the port side of one of the boll
era Tie force of the collision threw nearly
every one on board the Adelaide off his
feet Rae the assistant engineer was
firing through the door that bad
just been shut bead foromoat Into the store
room A cloud ot steam from the damaged
boiler followed him He hurried to the deck
bruised and battered only In time to escape
being scalded to death The Grand Republic
had rovHraed her engines just before she struck
the Adelaide and the reversal had now the
ufteel of backing her out of the great gash she
had cut In the other vessels aide leaving I room
for the water to rush In The Adelaldx filled
rapidly and began to alnk Aa the Grand
Republic parted from her Chief Engineer
Crouther with several of the deck hands and
others prang on board from the sinking
boat lrnnl Etraub the bartender whom
the collision had found penned up behind
hid bar and beer kegs managed to extricate
himself end escaped with the water filtering
close at his beets A cloud of steam cnvnloped
the deck but he ruehed through tt and was
about to board the Grand Rupubllo when he
heard little Willie Fisher the son of the
Captain of the Adelaide who was try
Inc to follow his example l crr8ava me
patml save most He turned and with the help
of Crouther hoisted the little fellow on hoard
the Grand Republic In the mean time four
tugs had come to the rescue of the Adelaide
and taken off the remainder of her crew In
cluding a single female passenger who was a
friend of the Captain The Grand Rxpubllc
also lowered I boat but apparently too late to
anticipate thetuga In their work of rescue
A moment after the collision the Adelaldn be
gan to sink Five t boat were quickr around
tier and the Grand Republic lay anngslde
until the tugs had made fast and then steamed
away to her own dock The Injured verael was
literally kept afloat by the hawsers ot the tug
bouts and she was towed slowly up the river
The bow of the Adelaide sank within two
minutes of the time she struck but her stern
and hurricane deck remained above water and
her crew would thus bavubeen beyond the dun I
gr of drowning for some time to com
In addition to the gaping hole mal by IbM
bow of the Grand Republic the force of Ibo
collision broke the saloon windows and spun
teriHl the woodwork
When the crew of tho Adelaide got together
after their rescue by the tugs aad Grand Re
public the roll was called aDd all answered to
their names except George the bartenders
boy He may have escaped 10 the shore In the
confusion but at t a late hour last night he had
not been board from and It A feared by some
that be wus drowned A single loss of
Ills on board the Adelaide Is known
to have occurred Moody I flue New
foundland dog was last seen alive tied tn the
railing on the lower deck and no one bad time
to unlooan him Moody was a dog with a
history He bad a twin brother named Ban
key who was klllud for biting a boy For fear
of Moodys doing likewise h was shipped
to Buffalo OB n canal boat Its la I said to have
returned on the first boat that came to New
York and found his way to hla former maulers
house In Hoboken within six weeks from the
time of his banishment
There are many versions given of the cause
ot the collision and the pilot and Captain of
each boat lay the blame upon those of tlm other
The pilot of the Adelaide Jacob VI Long
who was at the wheel with B J Fisher the
Captain says that when the vonaols were
found to be In each others course the
Adelaide rang one bell which was a sic
nal to the Grand Republlo to go to the
Adelaides left lad she gone according to the
signal Long claims the two vessel would have I
safely pasted The Grand Republic however
rang two bells which signified that
she would go to the Adelaides right I
and this she did The consequence
wa that the Adelaide when endeavoring to
steer I around to the right of tho Grand Repub
lie wan struck Several of the hands on board
Ihn Adelaide cnntlrracd this statement of the
night Pilot but Curt Fisher could not be found last
I could son her getting every minute lower
In the water Raid a lookeron from the chore
Had 111 Ion titat loose sh would have gone
don like a stone but the tug boat managed
to get her a little above the foot of Tenth street
Then she began to settle so fast that for their
own safety they had to cast off but she
grounded before she could link ol
One 01 the d < ok hands of tho Adelaide said
to a reportur last t night 1 was 1 think about
7 oclock when the collision occurred We
had made our Inflt landing put all our passen
gene ashore and were steaming slowly our
coaling wharf I was still light but the Adelaide
had all bar lamps burning Suddenly we saw
the Grand n U IcUllul any lights showing
going at full speed up the river We supposed
she could sadly pass us and we took no UVO
elal notice of her until we saw that sh was
coming directly for ue Our mate shouted
Where are you going Are you blind Cant
you sen us 7 Tue mat olth Rxpulillc replied
Where tile are your Ilht 7 and our mate
pointing from one part of lbs vessel l to another
said Thor are my lights but where ar
yours l The mate ot thtltepubllo pointed aloit
and said Thsru arsmy lights burnIng bright
er than yours But there were no light there
not a glimmer and he knew I well enough
Ue never altered his course but kept right on
and raa Into us The Adelaide keeled over
as though she was going to capsize at
once and one of her flues burst The
ater poured lato bar and bad the Are
mn been belowthey might hya ben drowned
but tha alarm had bun given just long enough
before the collision to bring everybody on deck
and u jar u I know no lives fir lost 1
standing close to the place where the Grand
Republics bow struck us and supposing that
we were going to sink at one I lumped at the
Republic and rnnnatad to clamber upon her
dock They were lowering a boat and Ufon ad
get her Into the water I was pulled to the
Adelaide which had parted a little from the
Republic and got on board I was afterward
taken off by one of the tUI
L Hchanck pilot of the Graad lUpubllo was
found lout evening on board that vessel nt the
root ot West Twentyfourth street Ha said
There are no lives loal and very little dam

to cut right through the Adelaide Wn drew

The players were late and when Blosson
came In he looked pale nnfl when out of tight

colic In the afternoon from which he had not
recovered Both men wars loudly cheered 1
they drew off their costs and their cue from
the green baize bag The table R a bit of
perfect workmanship the balls glittered In 1 the
gaslight and seemed to gild not roll so perfect
feet ware they
In stringing for the lead Blosson won chose
the white ball and scored I round 0 for his first
shot The champion followed with 19 missing
an easy one after a difficult masse1 Blosson
mado 3 and missed a difficult draw His op
ponent added but 2 to his lore Bios
son made 8 and stopped for a rest
which Schaefer would not permit for ha
missed when he shot Slosson made one and
then missed all the balls Thus the game
started slowly and unnrl l B tu nlavtr were
evidently In dead earnest and nervous That
Slossnn was III any one acquainted with his
usual quick nervous manner of playing
could sec lie inovnd slowly and his
faon was pain In his fifth Innings he
made one and then I miscue In his sixth two
and a foul which was claimed by Hcuaefora
umpire AloiiM Morris and allowed by the
referee Null Bryant Meantime Schaefer was
slowly forging ahead and by mal runs made
79 at the end of the ninth Inning while
his opponent was but J6 Then whie
son began to play In twenty
difficult ahota he got the balls together In the
upper lefthand corner but they would not stay
Hu made a magntflcunt bank shot that merited
the applause It received and so by good uphill
playing the balls rolling badly for him all the
time he mad 77 and then stopped
This nice run spurred Schaefer to action He
grasped his maglu wand and punched the bal
here and there with apparent carelessness
But they answerer to his cal and In forty hot
nestled lovingly side by side on the leftband
rail and answering to tile gentle touch of the
cue glided slowly toward the upper rail Great
applause followed the hundredth shot but the
champion madn but one more and mlssnd The
game stood Schaefer 180 Slosson 10 The

a lucky kiss mad a count nut of a sure mla
He mad some brilliant roundthetable play

The champion jumped to the table gathered
the globes In the lower righthand corner sent
them across the foot of the table twice coaxed
them Into shape and drove them up along the
righthand rail Click click click sounded
the ivories and with every motion nf Sohaefra
elbow one was added to his count
The click of the balls and the count
voice ot the marker were the only sounds The
marker watched the elbow and counted when
It moved So when Schaefer < mad
10 Irhllpr Ilde two mo
tions to a shot he was embarrassed corrected
his count and thereafter watched the balls At
last thin wizard of the cue mIssed a bank shot
trying 10 ceoflOs the balk lines He had mid
111 and his string showed a count of 291 to
The game then dragged a little Slosson
made wonderful shots draw the balls to
bl to
gather but as It sullen they ranged them
selves In difficult positions and refused to re
spond to his blandishment lie added to his
score by runs 01 26314 and 1 and Schaefer
did not do as wall as that Bhaele
In his sixteenth Inning Slosson by pure per
severance and delicate play cajoled the globes
into good humor They hugged the right
hand rail and slowly started down It I was the I
wrong rail for quick work but Slosson playing
threofourths ot the time with his left hand <
kept the marker busy At his 100th shot the
great applause from the largo audience showed
that hn was a favorite Ue took the balls to the
balk line failed to turn sent thuin for a little
exercise around the table they cam hack soon
took up their old positions on the right hand
rail und glided upon their back track Schaefer
looked auilouit Ills umpireMrMorribecame
fidgety He stood close to the halls watched
every chancn for a foul or a freeze and at
lungth claimed the latter Slosson who was
his own umpire claimed that they wnroali right
There was u llttla argument Achorusofchaurs
and hisses and yells from the audience and
thn referee allowed the freeze and spotted the
bulls Slosson polite aa ever said nothing
played with care and counted amid a tempest
of cheers But Pin missed the next He bad

game heating his own run of 161 mado In the
tournament The score stood Slossoa 363

A Daelner of sisooo Reported In Thaa
of the Late Collector rreelasa
The rumors ot a defalcation in the ac
counts of the late United States Internal Itavo
nue Collector James Fratland were yesterday
confirmed by the Information that his accounts
with the Internal Ilovanua Department
were abort 128000 Technically the de
fault la Mr Proelandu but there ia
no charge or suspicion that Ilr Free
land WM guilty of dishonesty or that
he bared any of the amount lie died In Sep
tember last In the 79tb year of his age For
several years before Ills death ha was extremely
feeble and knew little about the management
of his ofllce Ha rarely transacted business In
person with any one and It was his custom to
refer all applicants for Information to his dep
uty Silas W Boone whom he Implicitly trusted
After Mr Freeland died Mr Boons was ap
pointed acting Collector but ha was not re
quired to give bonds to the Government as
under the law the dead Collectors sureties
who wr Horace D Claflln and Lorln Palmer
remain liable until his ngoouuts were anally
settled and they were discharged Mr Boone
however had given a bond of 10000 to
Mr Freehand his sureties being exSheriff
Albert Daggett and Henry M Blrkett and he
continued to act as Collector until the appoint
ment of Col Itodnay 0 Ward He remained In
the office under Mr Wards administra
tion until April 1 when ha voluntarily
resigned The transfer of the office was
made to Mr Ward through Itevcnue
Agent Clark and under the ruin hn gave re
ceipts only for complete book of tobacco and
liquor stamps worth til 1000 The incomplete
book remained a charge against his prsdeoci
eon and either the stumps themselves nad to be
returned to the Bevaiue Department or their
value In money
Heeently H F Blair the lawyer of this city who
Is administrator ot James Frealand estate
heard thst there wss something wrong with his
accounts at Washington and that trouble was
likely to occur to his bondsmen He wrote at
on C tIu Revenue Department and received
word In reply tut there was a de
ficiency In Mr Frealancro o > nnt8 nr
28000 for tobacco stamps and that If the
amoust was not made good by July 1 the end
of tile fiscal year the late collector would ap
pear as a defaulter It being > Ir Iloonu duty
to return to the department all broken book of
stamp Mr Blair at oncn addressed a note to
bus and to his bondsmen calling for a
settlement at once to relieve Mr Freeland
estate and his bondsmen Mr Boone replied
that ho would call upon Mr Blair but up to last
evening hu had not done so Mr Blair said lost
night that he thought that the amount of de
falcation seemed now much larger than he
thought It actually was Mr Boonea friends
had told him that Mr Boon had In
his possession some stamp books which
lIe Mr Blair hoped would meet
nearly the amount of the deficiency
The Government would lose nothing because
Mr Freeland estate was sufficient to meet the
claim but tt should bo understood that Mr
Frnuland was only technically In default It
was supposed that whoa the affairs of his ad
mlnstratlon were closed that all of the stamps
were returned which the new Collector had not
receipted for The revenue depart raeutu system
was to charge ut against tIle Collector as so
much cash all etampa issued to him and to
credit him with the cash or lbs stamps returned
Mr Utalr expected Mr Boone bondsmen to
make good to tile estate the amount of tho bond
In the event of the datamations proving aa great
as It now appeared
Kevunue Collector Ward said last night that
he bad been ofllolully Informed of the de
ficiency but that before hearing from Wash
ington he knew nothing of It as Mr Boone
while serving the Govurumeat under him had
given complete autlsfactlou and his res
ignation was not ut the Collectors
solicitation nor was It made under
any pressure from the Collector I
thInk said Col Ward that Mr Boone has
the stamp books and will be able to adjust the
mutter The stamp are of no value to him
now and he may aa wall have so much brown
paper for all that they are worth except to
auuara the lute Collector s accounts Co Ward
added that ha did not know that Mr Boone hud
taken any stamps away with him but be would
have taken whatever belonged to him or what
he or the late Collector was responsible for
Mr Boone could not be found last night by
the nportur at hia residence 2G9 Fourteenth
street Brooklyn Tax Collector Tanner who
bad convened with Mr Boone early In the day
said that he Mr Uoonn had assured him that
upon receipt ol a communication from the In
ternal Revnnue Department hu had accounted
for everything and that no deficiency now ex
lated He bad explained the dulay tn squaring
the accounts by saying that hu had waited to
gK together some necessary documunta and
affidavits I believe this story eaid Mr Tan
nor and I have every confidence In Mr
Uoonea Integrity I do not believe that he Is a
defaulter lo the client of one cent
Tb IrUnds of the family ot the late Mr Fret
land were much troubled last night over the
alleged defalcation It would make Father
Freehand turn over In his grave said a mem
ber of Plymouth Church lust night If he
knew thai ha owed the Government anything
He was one of the founders ot Plymouth

forward At the same Instant I saw the dorsal
flnof shark close behind It The shark1 tall
churned thin water fully twelve feet away and I f
know that the shark must be at lenst fllteen feel I
long Next the head roan out of tile water and I
the great mouth act with teeth like those ol
of a log saw opened and abut In a vicious snot 1
atthe bluefIsh if S
A common shark ha a shovel nose and
must on account of the shortness of the undni
jaw turn over on his baok to seize his prey fbi I i I
thu black shark the man eater of southern lati I
tudes has a longer under jaw and snaps at hit
victim as an ordinary fish does I saw tliatth I
shark nearing the boat was a man enter the I Ii
largest one that 1 ever heard of In this part ol
the world I say frankly that I lost all Interest
in the bluefish on my line I was willing to lot
the shark havo It II ho would Bluer clear of me
I let go of ray line but the bluedab darted
straight for the boat slipping under it and es 1
caping The ahark following closely with U i
opun mouth plunged his nose through the it4 I
tuckof the boat about a foot forward of tb i p
stern and his uniter law closed on the keel I
with a crash like the out of an axe 1
in n dry tree trunk Water spurted Into
the boat The shock threw me head 11
foremost out of tho boat I sank
and as I rose I felt that I was kept under by
the agitation of the water by the iharka tall
which stirred the water Ilku the propeller of a i
tug But I struck out vigorously and to my r h I
horror came to the surface nlongsldnthe UII
of the shark I put out ray hand before I re
allzud fully where I was and touched his coJrf I
body and I remember I thought How bare
and strong title 1st As I turned to swim to
ward the boat my right foot struck his long
tall and here Is the mark of the contact Aa
soon as I got to swimming I felt ateaae I f
didnt seem to realize as I do now the horrible
fate that awaited molt tile struggling monster
alongside of me got his head Hear of the hole k C
in the boat But I expected every moment to r
see him turn and snap me up as he would a ii
weukflsh I clitubod Into the boat hnlplug my f
self by putting my knee on the sharks back I
The boat wag full of water and sunk nearly to
the waters edge My man had remained In It
W e threw over fish sail baled all the while
shouting for help j
John Irons ot Beabrlght and his hired man I
had been fishing about u quarter of a mile away
They bad ilrtuli l In their anchor and t < uguu to
row home They heard our crico and pulled for
us like men We ttprang Into their bout and fen
like men rescued from a ahlpwrick I got our
anchor aboard and we began to pull toward the I I i
beach towing the Belby I tell you elie was a I
heavy tow a quarter lull ot fish wntorlocgitd
and drugging that hungry sea drvli weIghting
probably close on to a thousand pounds pull to
log und splashing Another llshliii bout eight u
Ing our strange tow overhauled us At that
Instant there was a tretnendou silash behind
na and our tow was llghtenHd Tue shark had
got clear and next we aw his doral lln cir u
cling about the boat Wo concluded that the
best way to get rid of him was lo rlsht the i
Balby as far us we could Wo got her between ii
the two other bouts stuffed my oilskin coat and
trousers and my hired man In the breach
made by the shark and baUd Then we shift il
ed the flub to the bow canting her forward and
towed her stern foremost But mile hark still I
uircled about us his dorsal fin hlvtiltig through
the water As we got to shallower water ha I
rolled over and with a heavy lurch and a tart >
log splash of his tall plunged out of sight

In her keel marl by the sharks tooth that

In her side The city people boarding 111 tile
