flling the no'e of issue in the Kooseveit certio
rari proceedings, ho made a personal visit to
the County Court House to file the note of
Issue and the return to the writ of certiorari.
Nor doe he deny that he sought the aid of
Deputy County Clork George H. Fahrbach in
getting the caso put on the calendar as a pre

was all "regular," and that his unusual anxiety
ntsr the tiling of the papers was not because of
1 trie political significance of the cane, but be
1 pause he fidt that it was his " duty as a public
' official to llnd out where Col. Hooseveft had
' his residence.
"How did the clerk s records get so mud
dled?" Mr. Ward was asked.
" I'll teli you how that was. We gave them
well explicit directions so that there could be
do mistake about it that I suppose they laid the
paper aside and forgot to enter It. But that en
try book is only the clerk's private record. It
hasn't any significance. Of course it was ruther
unfortunate that the record was mixed up In
in-' tin- particular case, but it was just as I
(II you. I can see how this story of ' niggled
records' and 'political trlokery' started, but it
was only a series of coincidences. While the
story In This Si'N this morning is misleading. I
don t know that I can And any fault, for the
facts are all there, only they don't signify any
thing." " How did you get the case put on the oalen
dar as a preferred cause ?" Mr. Ward was asked.
" By simply giving notice to the clerk."
"Doesn't the code provide that before a
cause can he preferred a notloe of the Inten
tion to move for a preference must be given to
the opposing attorneys?"
"That doesn't apply in tax ease, which are
entitled to preference."
"But It Isn't your usual oourse to have a case
pat on the calendar as a preferred cause with
out a motion for preference?"
"No, we didn't nave time to go through the
formality In this case."
The Assistant Corporation Counsel's Inter
pretation of the law is at variance with that of
Elllm Hoot, Col. Roosevelt's attorney, and it Is
a fact that tho Corporation Counsel's office has
neariably heretofore followed the Code of
Trhu Procedure in preferred causes. The code
expressly provides that in New York county a
cause entitled to preference must not be pre
ferred without a formal motion for preference,
preceded by a notice to the opposing attorneys
that a motion for preference is to be made.
Col. Roosevelt's attorneys can explain Mr.
Ward's disregard of the law of olvil procedure
no more charitably than that the Assistant
Corporation Counsel. In tho excess of hli rel
for Tammany and his desire to damage Col.
Roosevelt's candidacy, took means to further
his ends that he would not have taken had he
taken time to think the matter over.

rnmmodore Woatherbr of Troy and Three
(itiHli f.ost In the Upper Hndson.
Troy, Oot. 6. Commodore N. L. Weatherby
and three other persons were drowned In the
Hudson River last night. Mr. Weatherby was
the Commodore of the Troy Yacht Club of this
city and owned a pretty little steam yaoht. It
tins been his custom to take partlos out sailing
almost nightly.
Last evening. In company with Stephen Mal
Icry. chief bookkeeper In the wholesale house
of 'Converse. Merrill & Co. : Miss Llzsle Savage
of Waterford. sister of the wife of Commo
dore Weatherby, and Mrs. Nellie Rreslln,
widow of William Breslln of Waterford, he
started up the river for a sail. It was not
later than 7 o'olock when tho yacht passed
under a large cable used to draw a vegetable
boat from the shore to what Is known as Bee
Island, several miles north of Lanslngburg.
The cable was a few feet above the boat at that
time, nnd the boat easily passed under It.
The party stopped at the Riverside inn of
Charles Converse, known ns Cnmp Rlverdale.
There lunch was served, nnd the party of
pleasure seekers enjoyed themselves for two
hours or more.
During this time there had been a terrible
cloudburst at Hooslok, which carried away a
mill pond and caused the water to come down
toward Troy, swelling the river to a flood. The
Hudson iilver rose five feet In an hour, so that
tlm water almost touched the cable running to
See Island.
It was M:30 o'clock when tho party boarded
the little yacht to return to this city. Mr. Con
verse cautioned the Commodoro to look out for
the cable, as the water had risen and tho place
was dangerous.
"I know all about the cable." said Commo
dore Weatherby. " for we passed It a short time
ago. nnd I understand the river. We are all
They steamed out Into tho swift-mnnlng
stream and had not been gone ten minutes
when Converse heard them calling for help.
He recognized the voice of Commodore
Weatherby, and securing a smftll bout rowed
down the river to assist them. The night was
dftrk and he could see nothing of tho pnrty or
the yoeltt. and concluded that they hud passed
tho cnhle all right.
When none of them reaohed home this morn
ing their friends became nluriiic.l. .-in. I parties
were sent to search for them. Boats were sent
up the river and men began dragging the
stream, but the flood that prevails makes
It almost Impossible to do anything tn
that line now. People are thronging tnn
banks of the river below where tho
accident Is supposed to have occurred
in hopes of seeing the bodies If they should
float down the stream. Nothing can he found
of the yacht, although the river banks have
been searched from the State dam to the cable.
It Is believed by some that the yneht sank when
It struck the cable, and tho four persons were
thrown Into the stream.
Examination of the cnhle this morning shows
red paint on It, and it Is assumed that the red
paint of the vacht's smokestack scraping along
the cable before the yaoht capsized caused
this. The yacht, it Is believed, struck the cable
before Commodore Weatherby know he had
reached It.
Commodore Weatherby was well known In
business and social circles. Ho was a member
of the insurance firm of Weatherby A Wilbur
and was an enthusiastic yachtsmnn. Mr. Mal
lery was about 50 years of age and a well-to-do
Miss Snvnge was a great favorite in social
circles. Mrs. Breslln wan a widow. All four
were prominent and highly esteemed. Mrs.
Breslln leaves two children. Weatherby leaves
a widow.
Tho vacht was about thirty feet long and
draws three feet four Inches of water. It was
covered with an awning, but bad no deck
or cabin. Tho boiler was fastened secure
ly to the botVom and sides, so that when
the boat sunk the boiler might be supposed
to keep It from being floated far from the spot.
But late in the afternoon It was found on La
goon Island, seven miles from where It was
capsized. The boiler and smokestack were
missing. None of tho bodies has been recov
Brooklyn Democracy Loses One of Its Most
Sturdy and Picturesque Figures.
Former County Clerk John Delmar of Kings
county, who had long been one of tho Demo
cratic pillars in Brooklyn, died at I o'clock last
evening at his home, 405 Ninth street. For
several days all hope of his recovery had been
abandoned, and he had been unconscious for a
considerable time before his death. His strong
personality and sturdy devotion to his friends
made him a commanding figure In the Demo
cratic organization in Brooklyn, and there is
no one at present In sight who can fill his place
as the invincible leader of the turbulent De
mocracy in the Uowanusdlstrict. The funeral,
which will be held on Monday morning from
the Church of St. Thomas Aquinas, in Fourth
avenue and Ninth street, will bo one of the
largest overseen in South Brooklyn. To-night
tho Democratic Association of the Twelfth As
sembly district will meet In tho hall In Fifth
avenue and Sixth street to take action upon
tho death of their old leader.
John Delmar was In his sixtieth yenr. having
been born tn Ireland on Sept. (l.'IKtH. He came
to this country in his boyhood with his parents
and settled In the Oowanus district in Brook
lyn, where ho continued to reside until the
close of his lite. In early life he became Inter
ested In Democratic pontics, and it was while
serving his customers on his extensive milk
route that he made himself one of the most
popular young men in the Greenwood district.
His distinction as a volunteer fireman also
proved a strong element In bin favor
when he became an aspirant for polit
ical honors. His first official place was
that of chief clerk in the office of
the Superintendent of the Poor, and he held it
until his election as a Justice of the Peace for
the South Brooklyn district In lttb7. He was
reolected to the bench In 174. and had still
two years to serve when he was elected County
Clerk In 1R70. On his retirement from the
office of County Clerk In 1H80 he engaged In
real estate speculations, and was also heavily
Interested In the various electric lighting
schemes for Brooklyn. For a while he also
branched off as a newspaper proprietor. His
taste for official life returned on the Inaugura
tion of Mayor Van Wyck, and he made a bid for
one of the Commisslonerships, but had to be
satisfied with a Deputy Assessorshlp. He made
no open objection, but It Is well known that lie
considered himself entitled to a more repre
sentative position in view of his long and un
flinching party services. He had been a mem
ber of the Democratic County Committee al
most continuously from his entrance Into
politics, and was frequently a delegate to the
State and national conventions. His leader
ship over the Democratic forces in tho Twelfth
Assembly district had been maintained with
out dispute until a few months ago, when
he suddenly found himself confronted
with a faction squabble. Although his
health was enfeebled, ho hustled around with
his old-time activity and at tho official pri
maries put his foes to utter rout, gaining an
overwhelming victory In oach election district
About three weeks ago ho was prostrated with
a carbuncle supposed to have been aggravated
bv prioging with a brass pin. The strength of
the patient gave way rapidly und. othor com
plications ensuing, his case soon became hope
less. Next to Hugh Meljiughlln.no Democratic lead
erln Brooklyn hud maintained his grip so long or
so firmly as John Delmar. II is rat her gruff exte
rior concealed a r.-ally friendly disMisltion. and
his fidelity to his friends could not be shaken.
He had some sharp personal disagreements
with Mr. McLaughlin, but there never was any
open rupture between them. Mr. Delmar's
fortune has been variously estimated at from
tr00,000 to J1.000.0OO. He was a generous
contributor to Catholic and other charities. He
leaves a widow, but no children.

was practically destroyed to-night, about mid
night, by the explosion of a dynamite bomb.

It was Intended to do it would have killed six
teen people.
T he I. oiu h was thrown through a rear win

Within feu feet of the explosion Mrs John

The child was hurled ten feet from the couch
against a door. The door was broken by the

City to Build a Pnblla Bath at Coney Island
with a Capacity for 10,000 Parsons
0,000,000 for Highways In the Iteanlar
Budget-Irrigating Pipes tn the Park.
Commissioner Jnmes P. Keating of the De
partment of Highways asked the Board of Es
timate yesterday for $4.H05.HW).17 for 18P0.
Manhattan nnd the Bronx got $2.0tKM)ao for
1H!H. He got It. The Mayor, who was'muoh
more amiable than ho was on Wednesday,
asked Mr. Keating If he repaved Slxlh ave
nue yet.
"I have not." was fie reply.
"Why hnven't you?" asked the Mayor.
"Because the appropriation for the work la
anchored In the Municipal Assembly alone
with appropriations of $201,000 for other
much needed work. Some Alderman from
the Bronx concluded he wanted to know more
about the appropriation and It has been held
un while he Is trying to find out."
"Cm I" said the Mayor.
When the Item for $400,000 for repaying
streets and avenues In Brooklyn was reaohed
Comptroller Coler wnnted to know why so
much money was needed. He said that the
streets and avenues of the Bronx were In a
worso condition than those of Brooklyn.
"In that you are entirely mistaken," said
Mr. Keating. "Tile's nre more poorly paved
and nnpnvpd streets In Brooklyn than In any
other borough."
Mr. Keating later on got to talking about as
phalting the streets around the public schools
In (Jueens. He said the estimated cost of the
asphalt was $'-'.50 a yard. Tho mention of
asphalt to the Mayor was like waving a red flag
In front of a bull. He exclaimed:
"Look hero, Mr. Commissioner! Why do
you waste tlmo estimating the cost of asphalt?
Don't you know the asphalt combination will
charge what It pleases, no matter what your
estimates nre? Now, wo don't propose toler
ating this outrage anv longer. I want you to
submit to me within a week estimates for the
erection nnd maintenance of an nsphnlt plant.
I think we can beat these fellows nt their own
game. If we can. we will cortuinly do It."
President Clausen, for the Park Department,
asked for $-Mtl(i.O()li.4'2. This vear's allow
ance for Manhattan und the Bronx was $1.380,
45.. He wanted $25,000 for Irrigating Central
"I never heard before that Central Park
needed Irrigation." romarked the Mayor. "Why
does it neetl It now?"
Mr. Clausen explained that the soil of the
park Is very light, and that during a dry period
1'. was almost Impossible to keep the luwns
and plants properly watered. He said that it
would be an endless job to water the lawns by
ban, I, aud to water them from wagons would
cut up tho lawns. His propoeitlon was to lay
water pipes through the park, with standpipes
and taps. To these he proposed attaching
whirligig sprinklers. The soheme seemed to
meet with the Mayor's approval. It was
passed, at any rate, and the Mayor remarked :
"This Item of $20,000 for maintaining the
Speedwny reminds me. I've never seen much
of that thoroughfare. I ride a bicycle, and
you won't allow bicycles on your Siieedway."
"I shall be glad to give you and your bicyple
a special permit. Mr. Mayor." replied Mr. Clau
sen. "No, sir: I don't want a special permit," was
the Major's reply. "I don't want any favors
that all other citizens don't enioy."
There was no applause at this remark, and
Mr. Clausen said that tho Mayor would then
better apply to the Police Department.
George v. Brower, Deputy Commissioner of
Tarks for Brooklyn, wants $150.0K) for this
"I propose building a public bath on unsight

hnvebaths there something like the nubile baths
in Boston, but finer, and, tn fact. Oner than
anything In this country. I propose to have
bot ami cold baths, tub. shower and plunge
baths, and a drying room, where the tempera
ture shall he maintained at over 200'. and
where the clothing of the bathers may be
cleaned and disinfected."
"What's that?" said the Mayor. "8ay that
Mr. Brower stated his proposition again, and
the Mayor said he had thought it would be a
good plan to put up a large recreation pavilion
"I propose to do all that. The bathB will ao
eommodate 10.000 persons at one time, and I
propose to have n pavilion large enough to ac
commodate that number when they come from
the baths."
"Well." said tho Mayor, "all I have to say Is
that If you can do all that work for $150,000.
the quicker you get at It the better. You can
have the money.

District Attorney Thinks Re's Got m Case
on a I'nving Bill for tt3.417.Sli.
District Attorney Gardiner Intimated yester
day that he was going to have Gen. Collls In
dieted at onco. He said that a number of sub
reports, which hud been handed in by the
Commissioners of Accounts, showed that Gen.
Oollls, while Commissioner of Public Works,
had violated section 04 of the Consolidation
Act, which forbids the making of contracts for
more than $1,000 worth of work unless bids
are advertised for. Col. Gardiner gave out a
copy of the report that he will submit first to
the Grand Jury. It says:
In June. 180ft. Commissioner Charles H. T.
Collls personally ordered, without requisition
or orders, tho work of repairing and laying
asphalt between and outside the tracks at the
Intersection of Boulevard. Tentli avenue and
Sovcnty-flrst street, without public letting or
without inviting bids, and for which work the
Barber Asphalt Company rendered a bill dated
June 20. 180 I. as follows:
480.1 square yards of asphalt surface, at
2O0 (PRO 20
840.1U square yards of asphalt and con
crete, at 8.80 i,jp2 7j
Total $2,262 92
Nothing further was done In this matter by
tho Commissioner of rublle Works until 1807,
when about Nov. 0 he requested his ohlef clerk
to cause to be made out a requisltlou for this
work. Tho chief clerk, Honry Dlinse. ordered
the clerk to the Wntor Purveyor. John Mc
MuniiM. to make out the requisitions, who made
out the following, viz.:
June l sihii square yarn's, $2.110 $suo 00
June 1 iwl square yards, $.'1.60 1.2ur, ho
Total $2.28B 80
When these requisitions were handed Com
missioner Collls to sign ho returned them
through his Chief clerk. Dimse. who In turn
informed Mr. MoYIniuis that the Commissioner
would not sign the one for over . I."'in. and
ordered him to change it by splitting it into
two requisitions. When the Chief Clerk was
asked if the dates should be the same In the
requisitions Into which they were to be split
up, Mr. Diinse instructed him to date one
June 1) anil the others Juno 1. which resulted
In Mr. McManus making out tho following
June 1. 480 square yards at ': 00 tteni 00
June 1, 200 square yanls ut $:i. 80 Tim 00
June M, 141 square yards st run r.85 80
Total $2 266 80
These were signed by Edward P. North as
Water Purveyor, although he had long ceased
to bo such. This was again unsatisfactory to
Commissioner Collin und ho Instructed Charles
W. Harney, the then Water Purveyor, to have
Mr. McManus, his clerk, again make out new
requisitions, which lie did us follows:
June 1, 44.37 square yanU at $n. so sir.stll
June I, 2HO.K2 square yards at $a. HO.. 1,124 II
Juue 1. 20o square yards at $11.80 7H0 00
Juno , tut square yards at $3 so :;m nn
Total $2,417 52
Each of these last four requisition- are, us
will bo noticed, at the rate of $:i HO. although
the company's bill and each other set of requi
sitions made out contained the Item of 480
sqiiiiro yuidsut $2 per square yard. Agulu.it
Will be noticed that these lour requisitions, ex
elusive of the olio for $1hmi ulready slgiietl hy
Com nilnsioner Colli-, amount to $2.4l7T2. und
Including the $110, already signed for, amount
to $.'i.:i7T.52, exceeding the company's bill by
$1,121 20.
The last mentioned four requisitions, Instead
of being signed by Ivlwurd r. North as Water
Purveyor, who held the position in 18110, when
the work wus done, were signed on Dee. :ni, the
last .lay but one of the Strong administration,
by Charles W. Barney as Water Purveyor, who
did not hold thut isisltion in 180H. the time in
question. All the various sets of requisitions
were copied In the oopy-press book of the de
partment in December. 1807. ut the time thoy
were mudo. while all of these requisitions were
dated us of June, 181 si.
We. therefore, present that these facts dis
close hut It w apparent to Commissioner
Collls from Juno 2i). 18ISI. the dnto of the
asphalt company's bill, that he bud trans
gressed the law in making a contract for over
$1.(MSI without previous advertising nnd re

" Section 105 of the Penal Code," said Col.
Gardiner, "says that a public officer or other
person In the city's employ whose duties are to
allow or take part In allowing any claim
against the city, and who connives at or
allows any false or fraudulent claim against
the city, is guilty of a felony.' Section 108 of the
Penal Code relates to conspiracy. Under the
latter section the persons who conspire to

Rxamlner Kimball I.nys Tradesmen's
Bank's Downfall to That Family.
"The borrowings and the lendlngs of money
by the Macnaughtans have busted tha Trades
men's National Bank," was the declaration
made to a group of reporters yesterday fore
noon by United States Bank Examiner Kim
ball. Mr. Kimball afterward asserted that
the loans President James Maenaughtan had
made to himself, his brothers and their asso
ciates In the various Maenaughtan enter
prises under the roof of the Wool Exchange
were all made since the Examiner's exami
nation of the bank In July. Just when
they were made, he said, he did not know.
There is only one series of these loans
which Mr. Kimball has investigated as ret.
This is the one for $350,000 altogether,
which has for its basis n block of 4.000 shares
of the Wool Exchange stock, worth at par
$4 is i.iks i. This siock was Issued at 50 cents.
When Mr. Kimball was asked yesterday how
much of tho New York Wool Warehouse stock
had been spouted to'the bank.'he said:
"I do not know, but I have not been through
one-sixteenth of the bank's assets yet. I know
that it has $40,000 or $50,000 worth of the
warehouse company's paper."
President George G. Williams of the Chemi
cal Bank made public yesterday this letter
written to President Maenaughtan:
"DrB Sir: Permit me to disabuse your
mind of the impression vou have conveyed to
the public that the examination of the Trades
men's Bank by the Clearing House Commit
tee took place in consequence of my state
ments to them that the bank was In trouble.
The simple facts are briefly these: A meeting
of the Clearing House Committee took place ot
1 o'clock on Friduy. After the routine busi
ness had been gone through with the question
of the Tradesmen's Bank came up before us,
and It was stated thut rumors affecting Its
credit were In circulation In Wall street. I
distinctly stated to the committee that the
Tradesmen's Bank; had not called upon the
Chemical Bnnk for any loans for some years
post, and that, having long been neighbors, it
was my impression that whenever ther wsnted
to borrow they had comet to this bank. After
full discussion it was decided that an'examltin
tion should take place at 3 o'clock on Mondny.
"After my return to my desk nt the Chemical
Bank, In about one hour's time, I received
your letter asking for a loan of $100.00l to
$200,000. which I promptly declined. I studi
ously kept the contents of your letter private,
and only one single person was Informed (and
he an employee of this bank) of the contents
thereof, until after my return from the coun
try Tuesday morning.
"This brief recital of facts will show you
clearly that tho Clearing House Committee
knew nothing whatever of your request for a
loan un'1' e.tter the examination of your bank
and its suspension from tho Clearing House.
Very respectfully, Georor G. Williams."
There wasn't a Maenaughtan to be found In
this city yesterday. Allan Maenaughtan is
said to be in the Adlrondacks for his health.
Wlllium Maenaughtan, President of the New
York Wool Warehouse Company, was said to
be at the Mucnaughtan summer home at
Mount Washington, Mass., and James, the
President of the Tradesmen's Bank, was not
at his homo, lift West Fifty-eighth street.
Vice-President Bates and Examiner Klmbull
said that he was resting and that he could be
ftun.i at an hour's notice If wanted.
As It was there was no one with authority
to telj what the condition or the assets were of
the New York Wool Warehouse Company or
of tho other Maenaughtan concerns whose
obligations have been loaded upon the bank.
It whs said yesterdny that the New York
Wool Warehouse Company has on hand 15,
0X).000 pounds of wool upon which It has
made advances. These udvauces are said to
amount to $1,500,000 or more. Yesterday
tho Sheriff received an attachment for
$2.ttft4 58 against the company In favor of H.
P. Cumpbell a Co., lor rout due on Oct. 1 for

Paws. Oct. O.-The strike among the work
Ingmen here threatens to beoome serious. The
strikers have compelled a number of workmen
to abandon their tasks. In many Instances
using brutal violence. It Is estimated that
tlO.OOO men are Idle.
The loaders of the movement are aiming at a
general strike with the object of affecting "an
economic revolution which will change the
position or tho workers of Kranoe."
An extension of the strike to the dook labor
ers at Havre Is feared, but there le no move
ment there yet. The Courrftr dit Soi'r. the or
gan of Prime Minister Brisson. remarks that
the strike threatens to culminate In riots. The
ringleaders seem to have at their disposal re
sources which are as mysterious as they are con
siderable. It Is even said that unknown oer
aons have opened a credit of 2.000.000 francs to
enable the strike to be pushed to the last ex
tremity, namely, the point where It will be
necessary for the army to Interfere. The
Vourriir till Soir continues:
" It Is needless to point out the dangers to
republican Institutions which would result. It
would ho the Ideal opportunity sought by
those who dream of appealing to force.
If the strikers aro aware of Isielr true In
terests they will keep within reasonable
limits nnd not supply the opportunity of civil
war to some Genoral to carve a triumph out of
street massacres, and to mako victory the
preface to a monarchist restoration."
The foregoing reflects the curious reeling of
uneasiness respecting the strike, whloh Is re
marked In many quarters, it seems to bo be
lieved that tho strike has some hidden, mys
terious connection with the Dreyfus affair.
Anyhow. It Is affording too fruitful ground for

On the other hand, allowance must be made
