MANY FIRES CHARGED
TO CARELESS WORKERS New York State Official Accounts for Recent Destruction of Costly Summer Homes. NEW YORK. April 1?.-The careless ness of workmen, employed to prepare the country homes on Ix?ng Island of wealthy New Yorkers for summer occu pancy is given by M. F. Ahearn, state tire marshal, us the cause for a ma jority of the many fires in the last few months. Since the first of the year homes valued at about $2,000,000 have been destroyed. Three fires yesterday re sulted in a loss of more than $100,000. The homps destroyed were those of Mrs. }- f. Collier at Southampton; Stephen II. Burgoyne. at Great Neck, and Ray- ; mom) IL Bay lis, at Huntington. Several fires are believed to havo been s?-t'by dis.-h.-.rgcd employes to discredit ?,fw >wp? rh:tend' i?ts. and in the Great j N.-.-k ? o!oriy tin- summer residents al- [ ? ad;, li.ive arranged for a thorough po- i h'-ing of the large ??states. Suggests -Requiring Bonds. Tt is also proposed to require paint- j :r ?? ;u,rl interior decorating contractors j r?> provide sufficient bond to insure own- j ers against loss by tires caused by the carelessness of workmen. In addition to the three homes burned Vt-sterda. other fires in the past few months included Mrs. W. K.

At a meeting c;f the joint memorial | committee, composed of members of the Board of Trade. Chamber of Commerce and Retail Merchants' Association, of which D. J. Kaufanm is chairman, ways and means were discussed for the work, and it appeared to be the sense of the committee that the early approach of summer would render a canvass for sub scriptions at The present time less likely ro bear results than one in the autumn. Accordingly, John Dolph. Ross P. An drews and W. S. Corby were appointed a subcommittee of three to prepare a plan for The fall canvass and to report back to the main committee in the fall, when the work is to be vigorously prose cuted. 800 Out of Work From Strike.
