The bundle w- discovered by t worklngman employed by tha terra cott company, "i10 turned It over to tha Lone Island City police. Tho spot where tho bundle waa found I) three mllos from the houta In Wood ilde supposed to havo been ronted by lire. Ssck. The Astoria Ferry is only half a mile from tha home. The bundle was tied with strips ot white nuilln which might have been torn from a woman's skirt or apron. There waa eTldence that the garment, whatever It was, had been flounced. The bundle waa wrapped In a New York German nowspaper dated June 20, a copy of The Evening Suk dated June IS, and a copy of tho Journal dated June 20, joslda were: sleere torn from a man's white msdras shirt, through tho texture of which ran thin Me stripes an Inch apart: a corset coTer, or part ot a chemise: a section of a tucked sleevo cut or torn above the elbow from a woman's wttst; another similar sleevo torn from above the shoulder: a piece ot unbleached canton flannel; the lower part of a woman's undervest; a small piece of a cheap lace curtain, half a towel, parts of two flannel shirts, half tho tall of a cheap light blue calico shirt, part of one Ice of a pair ef mtn's cheap flaunel undcrdrawers, a piece of ranslln with a narrow hem at ono end, and sev eral pieces ot muslin that looked llko the re mains of a sheet. Ths police kept tho finding of the bundle a se cret until they had a chance to discover whether they were being hoaxed or not. All the articles found wero stained with blood, and had evi dently been In the water several days. The po lice called In a chemist, who said that the stains wers undoubtedly blood, but might not be hu man blood. The suggestion was made that the oanton flannel slnD might bo such as a bath rubber would wear at hlB work though, hardly, when he went visiting on Long Island. Possibly it was this suggestion, and also the published suggestions that Oulldsensuppe, in righting for his life, had bruised Mrs. Nack's arma and very likely tore her clothes, that led the police to sur mise that the bundle had been "planted" to fit the case. What the police are trying to do now Is to And Martin Thorn, or Torsowskl, who they bellovo was Implicated with Mrs. Kack In the homicide. Once they have captured Mm they believe it will be an easy matter to clear up the mystery, Ther have not yet anv clue to nls movements after he left the saloon at 340 East Thirty fourth street on Tuesday night last. The alarm containing his description has been sent to every port or town where It is surmised that Thorn might hav e gone to, and unless he has com mitted suicide Acting Inspector O'Brien thinks he will be heard from in a lew days. Detective Sergeants Krauch and O'Connell visited the houso at 36 Second street. Wood tide, yesterday and made a systematlo search of the house and surroundings, without Retting an Iota of evidence that a crime waa committed there. O'Connell waa a plumber before ha got on the police force, and he was detailed to ex amine the bathtub and plumbing system In the house. He and Krauch scraped up the dust on the floor, gouged out the dirt between the cracks, and even took shavings ot the wood on the floor and the planks on tho walls. OConnell also removed the traps in the bath room and pieces ot pipe. All these will be submitted to a microscopical and chemi cal examination in an effort to discover traces of blood. They don't expect much of a result, O'Connell could not And anything that would verify the statement that water had been run ning for two days and two nights. The cellar of the bouse was very damp, however. It waa said that the detectives found in the ashes of the stove the toe of a burned shoe and a steel shank, such as is used in shoes. A former examination oMho store showed that there bad not been a tire in it for a long while, evidently not since the house was occupied by the former tenant. The black horsa and the surrey which Mrs. '. Kack hired at Strennlng'a livery atablo In New i York on Saturday were driven out to the sevno yesterday, and Mrs. Haften, who lives at :U t ,' Becond street. Mrs. McKenna, who lives on uu northeast corner of Second street and . j.i r avenue, and Mrs. Wally, who lives on the auut.i ; saat corner, said they ware the same horse mid S carriage seen on Saturday last in front of 340 the horse supposed to have bean hired by Mrs. Kack and Thorn. Mrs. Boettiger, who heard cries 1 ea Saturday morning, identified the surrey as tha ' wagon which she had seen stop at the houso on ' Friday evening with two mrjo. and a woman in It, but she Was not certain about the hone. The ' newspaper shrieking about the case has driven i the usually sensible and stolid German popula tion of Woodslde into a state bordering on hysteria, and some of them would identify a horseless carriage as the vehicle which stopped I is front of the house if they were asked to. I Central office men made another search of Mrs. Hack's rooms at 430 Ninth avenue yester- ; day in the hope of turning up an additional cine. They went through every cranny of the house and overhauled all papers and letters i found. Mrs. Nack's only visitors In Jefferson Market prison were her lawyer, Emanuel , friend, and a Jerseyman who was let Into the 5 prison to see if he could Identify her as the worn- -, an of the surrey drive In New Jersey. Ho could i, tot. One of the detectives said that the failure of Mrs. Buala, who let the cottage at Woodslde, to Identify Mrs. Nack on Saturday night as the lessee might have been due to the fait that she law Mrs. Nack without her hat, and had always Men her tenant with her hat on. Etnannel Friend, attorney for Mr. Nack; ap- Piled to Magistrate Flammer In Jefferson Mar- ! set Court yesterday morning for an order to . prohibit the police, the Coroner, or anybody else ? putsido the regular prison attendants, from vls- It ng Mrs. Nack in her cell or looking at her from the corridor, except in the presence of tounsei. Friend made the application because f the visit made by Coroner Tutblll and several women and men to Jefferson Market prison about pldnlght on Saturday to try and Identify Mrs. Kack as the lessee of the cottage In Woodslde f and the woman who went on a surrey to Cliff- Ilde. N. J. i When Mr. Friend read In tho papers yesterday J morning that his client had been routed out of bed on tiaturday night to enable somebody to identify her, he posted off to court as quickly as - Possible, lie told Magistrate Flammer that it was an outrage that every Tom, Dick or Harry. Including the police and the Coroner, should be allowed to disturb bis client after she had been held for examination. Said he: "I ask that your Honor will Issue an order ? which will prevent all persons In the future ', from visiting taj client In her cell, except In the presence of her counsel." e Msglatrate Flammer said that he had no authority to keep the Coroner out of the prison. lis did not propose, either, to interfere with the police, Mrs. Nack's cell, however, was her castle for the time being, and he prosumed that ' she could refuse to see anybody who asked to l see her. ; Mr. Friend said he had heard that the District Attorney would seek to have M rs. Nack Indicted I before her examination on Tuesday, Even It an uoictment wero round, be said, he would Insist ?

Cargo Is short and stout, with a round face and light mustache. Yesterday mornlnr In Jefferson Market Court tho clerk called: " Michael Gargo to the bar!" At that an Italian, about forty year, short and very slight of suture, with black hair and a black mustache, stepped before the Magistrate. When told of what he was charged he pulled a license out of his pocket. Magistrate Flammer finding It was all right, turned to Policeman Main and said: " This man has a license; what did you arrest him for 1" "He didn't have It when I arrested him," was the policeman's reply, Whon asked where he got his license ths IUllan told the Magistrate that he was balled out after his arrest, and that before coming to court yesterday morning he put his license in bis pocket. Magistrate Flammer discharged the prisoner after telling him that he must keep his license attached to bis stand. As the Italian was walking out of the gate Policeman Londergan of the West Twentieth street station hurried to tho Magistrate and said that he had arrested the departing prisoner on Saturday evening at 7:10 o'clock for running a bootblack's stand without a license. The Italian who had just been dlsoharged was brought back. Then it became known that ho wA?no.t.?Ilchael Qatwo. butwas John Michael of 334 West Twenty-fifth street. He had heard the namo Michael called by the clerk of the courtand supposed ho was wanted. Michael and Gargo look as much alike as a oablo car and a sloop yacht When Magistrate Flammer had heard Michael's story, he turned to Policeman Main and said: "Would you be able to tell your father from your great-grandmother t" The policeman stammered something, and then 8ergeant Francis of the court squad said he would report the case to the Police Board to-day and prefer charges against Main to the effeot that he was unfit to be a policeman. Main is a new man on the force. Gargo proved to have a license, as well aa Michael, and after being warned to keep it In sight in the future was discharged. piiib anonxxxa omrncn anurias. A Business Batlatag Burma ! Warrifla . leea Bstlmalea at OSO.OOO. Fire started at 11:40 o'clock yesterday morn ing In the two-story business building at 2733, 2735, and 2737 Third avenue. Adjoining the building on Third avenue Is St. Paul's Reformed Church ot Mott Haven. The pastor, the Her. G. Edwin Talmage, waa In the midst of his sermon when the clangor of the arriving engines was heard. He motioned to the ushers to ascertain if the Are was dangerously near. They answered that it was, so the pastor closed his sermon, and, giving out one verse of a hymn, dismissed the congregation at the close of the singing. The parishioners retired In good order, while half adoxen of the men connected with one of the church societies formed a bucket brigade to help protect the rear of the parsonage, which adjoins the church. The paint waa blis tering under the heat, and the brigade dldrery good service in keeping the walls wet. The Are extended to George 8. Henshaw's frame cottage at S81 East 145th street, which had recently been repaired. It burned through the new roof, and water spoiled much of the fur niture. The loss is estimated at $3,000. The building where the fire started has been rather an unfortunate one for its tenants. A. Zadlg & Co.. who formerly occupied port with a miscellaneous stock ot goods, made an assign ment last winter to Henry Rosenthal, who has since been trying to continue the business until the stock could be disposed of. He sublet the place to Isaao Well, who has been moving mer chandise Into the place and expected to have full possession on Tuesday. I. Sender waa an other lessee of the place, and his stock was much like that of Zadlg's, the whole making a sort ot general store. Tho building was lighted by electricity, and the occupants say thore were no fires in It. Well soys he visited ths store and left every thing cifrlght at 10 A. M. Ha had two friends with fa Im and says they had no occasion to use lights of any kind. The police and the Fire Marshal are trying to find out what caused the lire. Matthew Hicks, assistant foreman of Engine 41 was nearly thrown from a ladder during the fire by the sudden fall of ths cornice against which the ladder rested. He clung to the rungs, however, and held on until the ladder found a new resting place for Itself against the wall. The fire la estimated to have done about 95,000 damage to the building, and to have de stroyed $40,000 worth of stock. CJtorr's kxbt it. b.

Mr. RnaaaUa Trlaata to tba Merallty er tbe Ialaad-41liia Ont rer ran. Maybe 250,000 persons visited Coney Island yesterday. It was an orderly crowd for the Fourth of July, and the police recorded but one arrestup too o'clock last night. Thd man ar rested was scooped in by Central Office Detective Roche, and, when taken to the station houso, he said his namo was Edward Murphy. Detective Roche found Murphy getting full of firecracker whiskey on tho Bowery, ' The prisoner bad 9700 In his pockets, ne re fused to give his address. The detectives think the prisoner Is a German, although he .gave an Irish name, ne said Murphy answers tha da scrlptlon ot Jacob Klrsehoff, who was wanted, by tho police ot Peeksklll on a small charge of forgery. Soveral hundred persons followed the officer and his prisoner to the police station. The ar rest caused a great deal of excitement along Surf avenue, and a pet monkey ownod by a Mrs. Meyers left his perch on the bar ot the Mansion House and chased aftor the crowd. Then tho crowd turned and chased tho monkey. The monkey tried to get back to his hotel. He climbed up an awning post, and then Jumped on a frankfurter man's griddle. The griddle was hot, so tho monkey lost no time In getting off. He Jumped on the shoulder of a stout woman who was carrying a baby. Tho woman scroamed and ran. In doing so she upset a red lemonade stand, breaking a big glass Jar. The rod lemonade trickled over the wooden stand and formed a pool on tho board walk. The fat woman and the monkey got separated In the shuffle and the monkey climbed on the roof of a concert hall. The crowd outside hooted and yelled. The crowd inside deserted the stage performance and hurried out to see the roof show. The blond young women on the stage followed the audience to the open-air perform ance. The crowd threw Raines law sandwiches at the monkey, notwithstanding the protests of the owner of Jocko, who shouted: " For God's sake don't kill him 1" "He'll be a sure-enough dead monk if oneob dem 'ere sandwitches ever hit him," remarked a negro who was selling hot corn. Then a fellow who was intoxicated bought four ears of corn from the negro and threw them at the monkey. The drunken man's friends bought soma mora corn for the same purpose. The negro had been yelling, "Yere's yer nice 'ot corn, five cents a ear," but he changed his cry and shouted: "Yere's yer nice 'ot corn, five oents a throw. Any gentleman what hits do monk gits a good cigar," The crowd bought sill the corn In the boiler but didn't hit the " monk," whioh proved a good dodger. Then a franfurter man moved his basket to the hot-corn man's territory, and tha crowd threw frankfurters at tha monkey. The monkey dodged and squealed every, time a frank furter landed near him. Tbe concert hall pro frletor was losing money, so he sent a boy up on he roof after the monkey. The monkey climbed down the back of the building, and was chased across the board walk, dodging half a dozen bicycles. The crowd ran after nlm. He took refuge on a carrousel, perching himself high up near the roof on the Iron bars that supported the wooden lions. Round and round he spun on the carrousel until the crowd around It attracted two policemen. Tbey ordered the owner of the merry-go-round to stop his machine. Then ths cops tried to capturo tba monkey, but Jocko got on tha roof ot the merry-go-round and would not come down. Tho German proprietor argued with the policemen, claiming that he was losing money by the monkey's interference with his business. "Mebbe I lose five dollar a minute und more besides," be said. "Posslbllly you tlnk ve have four Fourth 8hulya every Sunday to mnke busi ness, but ve had jot not one dls year before." " Give de monk a ridel" yelled a girl dressed In red: " don't yer bear bim yollln" I "Veil, I give him a ride vher. my lions got some peoples on for business," said the merry-go-round man. The crowd took the hint and scrambled on tbe wooden animals. Then the German started up bis macbino and tho monkey was spun until he got dixzy. "Spin him agen for da drinks," said the com panion of the girl in red, and the German kopt spinning the monkey until some one shouted that a bather had been drowned in the surf. Then the monkey was forgotten while the crowd surged over to the beach. They found over ten thousand men and women bathing. One of the bathers, an old man, had bad an epileptic lit in tbe water. He waa carried up on the sand, and whiskey was poured into him until he was ablo to care for himself. " 'S all right now." said a drunken man in tho crowd; "Scooney Island whlskey'll knock any dead man alive belcher sweet potatoes on it every time." He was ono of tbe few drunken men nt tbe isl and yesterday, for it was not a thirsty crowd. It was a hungry crowd, and they ate everything in sight excepting tho Raines law sandwiches. These they threw in the sand " lust for spite," aa one man cut It, because he had to pay for the sandwich, which was not of the edible brand. The sand waa littered with Raines law sand wiches and pilot biscuit from tbe "chowder boats." All of tbe " chowder boat " proprietors sold out their stock early In tbe day. The pio neer In the chowder-boat business, old Bill Greaves, a relic of McKano'a days, said yester day was the best day be ever had. Up to 3 o'clock, he aald, he sold 4,200 plates of chowder, and bad opened 3,100 clams for the hungry army. But asldo from the hungry army thore was another army at Coney Island yesterday. This was the Salvation Army. Brooklyn Corps No. 4. in command of CapL Johnson, who was as sisted by Capt. Miller and two lieutenants, held meetings on tbe sand with fourteen Salvation lassies In poke bonnets and array suits, some of whom were from the National headquarters In this city. The first of these meetings was held at 3 o clock In the afternoon on the beach near the Iron pier. Tbe Salvationists had originally intended to hold a meeting in the Bowery, but tbey couldn't get a permit, as tbe Bowery was termed private property. Tbey held two other meetings further up, near the old Oceanic. Hotel, and a meeting down on the beach toward Norton's point. All of the Salvationists' meetings were well attended. When they were over Capt. Johnson said: "Our meetings were so successful that tbey will be repeated next Sunday. Tho crowds wero peaceful and seemed well pleased. Quite a number of persons in bathing costumes Joined in the meetings tnd sang. Our collections ex ceeded our expectations, and we are greatly pleased with our day's work." The Salvationist!! were not the only ones to hold religious services at Coney Island yester day. Early In the morning the Rev. F. B, Rus sell, President of tbe State Law and Order Soci ety, conducted services in the Streets of Cairo. He was assisted by bis mother, Mrs. W. G. Rus sell, and a number ot women from Brooklyn Heights. Mr. llussell preached from tho stsge. on which four girls afterward danced tho roucbee-cou-cbee. The dancing was part of the regularsbow given in the Streets ef Cairo. The girls tlrat took part In tbe religious services, joining In singing the hymns. They wore their Coney Island street costume. Prof, Hllxonblunnor, who plays the coucbeo dance music, accompanied tbe singers by playing religious tunes on the piano. The Rev. Mr. Russell delivered a sermon to the Turks in the Streets of Cairo hall, taking bis text from St. Luke, xxllL, 4: "Go out In tbe highways and bodges and compel them to get in. The religious services hsro lasted a half an hour. 1 hen tno Brooklyn revivalists went over through the Bowery to tbo Turkish Theatre on Tllyou's walk, where another service was held. After Mr. llussell and tbe Brooklyn church women left the Streets ot Cairo the dancing girls put on their Turkish costumes and gave the coocbec-coocbee dance for the benefit of the crowd left behind by tbo President ot tbe Law and Order Society. At the Turkish Theatre Mr, Russell aud the church women were assisted In tbe religious service by La Belles Fatlma, Rosa and Ayesba. La Hello Ilosa held a bymn book upeldo down and moaned a Turkish chant that a Brooklyn policeman interpreted as "I got no soul, I got no soul," "The police records, said the Rev, Mr. Rus sell, "show that tho virulentattacksuponConry Island are not Justified. I have been In com munication with tbe police dally, and my rer Forts ha e always been acted upou promptly by bo police. Tbo groatest sin among you Is your greed for gold. But ou shouldn't forget tbo future before you. It will be much longer than a Coney Island season, and it would be much better for you Coney Islanders to give a little more attention to your souls anil less to your money getting, But I must say that Coney Island Is not as wlckod as It has been painted. If it were tbe public would not comohero. I notice that the newspapers re ported that 120,000 people visited Coney Island two w eeks ago to-day, and that tbo number who came here last Sunday was more than 125,000. To-day I am Informed from the managers of tbe railroads and steamboats that they carried 140,000 here this morning. This shows that the publlo bas not lost confidence In Coney Island, There may be a great deal of sin here, but I will not refor to that sin at present. There Is more of this sin In one block of any street in Capt. Chapman's Tenderloin than In all of Coney Island, There is more of It in any one police precinct in Brooklyn tbau there is here. I Know this because, as President of tbe Stata Law and Order 8oclety.lt has been brought directly to my attention. After tbe Rev, Mr. Russell concluded his re marks his mother, Mrs. W. G. Russell, led the ther Brooklyn church women In singing the t hymn " Nearer My Ood io Thee." Ther oama ahltch at one point In tha hymn, and a man shouted r "Qo ahead old lady you're a peach." Mrs. Russell smiled and. with tho other, con tinued Singing. There werd'ho other interrup tions or outside remarks, and the congregation of Coney Islandsrs, Turks, and Plcklevflllans, concluded the services by singing "WoBhall Gather at tho Rlvor." .J'if n hour after tho religious folk had gone the Turkish theatro was tho seeno of coucbee dancing and tomtom banging, with tho barker yelling: "Ulsisdeonly one on da Coucbeo Boulevard, aldough dero may be lmitatlonorsl" AH of the shows wero well patronized, and so were thp dancing pavilions. At tho latter places the west side girl was the " real thing." as thoy jay In Hlgclns's carpet factory, and, aa the fac tory has boen shut down for two woeks. the girls woro out in full forco yesterday for a good mT''"1 '& Most of thorn danced In "Tho Silver Dollar," on tho Bowery, whoro there was what tha girls termed "a sorec." Hero all tho colors of tho rainbow wero represented In tho skirts that twirled over tho floor, and they never seemed to stop twirling. Tho girls dldnotstop even to eat. Once In a while one would stop to have a drink. During tho drinking lnvervals they sat at little round tables and " talked shop," Two of theso girls, wearing blue dresses girdled with red belts, sat at one of the tables near the door, when a third girl carao up to tho tablo. Oneot the red-belted girls addressed tho now comer, saying: " Hello. Kitty, are yer working 1" " Naw." said Kitty, " day shut down at nig gins son Friday, an' held us up on two days' par." "Why didn't yer kick." said the red-belted girl. '"Couse It's do ruloter hold back two days," said Kitty, "but I kern down here nil by meself.

" Bat's too bad," said the red-belted girl, "I supposo Maxy'll shake ber now, I hear he's coin' wit' dat cock-eyed girl in do corset factory: Is dat so I" "I hoerd It," said Kitty; " but say, Mamo I" " What I" " Wero you twirlln with dat little feller what hnsder blue sulton I" " Yeli."

"As a result," he said, "Coney Island has been a suburb of Sodom. Indeed, for outrageous indecency Sodom bore no comparison to this place for vilencss. One cannot speak In publlo of the scenes which are dally enacted at that re sort, and by which young people ot both sexes are polluted.

Ho was once connected with tbe Ian Enforcement Society, but it was discovered that his asslstanco was rather a hindrance than a help and his services wero therefore dispensed with. He has since organized an independent Uw and Order League, aa he tcrmod it, under whose auspices he Is at this time posing as a reformer, but in reality is being used by the enemies of tho Law Enforcement Society against tbe work of en forcing the law.

CANTOjf, 0 July 4, President and Mrs. Mo Klnloy probably would havo found It no warmor In Washington than In Canton, where they came to spend tho Fourth. Tho thermometer has registered well up In tho nlnotlcs over since tholr arrival, and tho setting of tho sun brought little or no relief. But In splto of this discomfort thoy are greatly enjojing their brief visit. Mrs. Mc Kinley's face lights up with Joy at tho approach ot each of her old f rlonds, and she seems to de rive a vast amount of ploasuro from association with the neighbors and friends from whom sho has boon separated since March. The President finds the relief from the office seekers quite pleasing. It cannot bo said truthfully that ho entirely escapes them here, for thero are still quite n fow Cantonlans who are willing to for sako the walks of prlvato llfo to serve tholr country. But they aro not nearly so numerous nor so persistent hero as at Washington, With tho President, to-day was very llko the Sundays of the campaign and tho time Inter vening between his eloctlon and Inauguration. Ho retired late Inst night, thoroughly tired by the Journey from Washington and tho greetings of his friends here. But neither boat norfatlgue kept him from morning services In tho First M. E.

James McKlnley drove them to tho church In tho family carriage and called for thorn after tho sorvlces. Tho JEollan Quartot assisted tho choir In a special musical programmo appropriate to the day. This quartot was ono of the features of jasi year s campaign, its songs wero rendered time after time from tho famous front porch while tho President stolo a llttlo rest botwocn tho visits of tho delegations. A portrait of Washington and an American flag draped over the chancel rati wero tho only other Indications of the day in tha services. Ths Rev. Dr. O. E. Manchester conducted tho services. He has boon tho President's friend for years. Thoy served in the samo regiment In tho civil war. Tho Doctor came here as pastor of the President's church In tho heat of the campaign and was ono of tho guests on tho In auguration trnln. The pastor reforred to tho President In tho opening prayor, nsklng for Divine guidanco In his olllclal duties, and that be might gain added strength during the fow days given to rest. The general themo was "Christian Optimism." Refcrenro was made to tho era of depression and tho passing away of the clouds of distress, ami the people wero Impor tuned to havo faith In God that all will bo w oil. Tho President and Mrs. McKlnley, with a fow other friends, participated In a family dinner at noon at the home of M. C. Barber. Mrs. Birber Is Mrs. McKlnley's sister. Ijiter the President returned to bis mother's home to spend tbo re mainder ot tho day nnd evening, lea lng It only long enough to tako a little drive about sun don n. Tho President Is getting as much comfort as possible out of bis stay here. The toll silk bat usually associated with bis public appearances has been discarded for a straw hat of conven tional Btyle, and tho usual heavy frock coat has given place to a lighter eergesack. It was In this outfit that he went to church this morning. He was seen later on tho vine clad piazza of his mother's houBo or on tha shndy lawn In 'ront of It, leisurely smoking a cigar and now and then scanning the papers. He is particularly In terested in the Washington nows, and read yesterday's Senate proceedings and comment thereon intently. Of affairs ot Stato tho Presi dent will not talk. Efforts wero made to-day to draw blm Into a discussion by some ot the callers, but to no avail. Saveral invitations for to morrow havo been received, but no plans aro outlined definitely.
