V OL. XLIII. N0.192. PRICE TIIKEE CENTS.
NEW HAVEN, CONN.. MONDAY. AUGUST 12, 1895. THE CARRINGTON PUBLISHING CO. r 1 r t - i- V1 i 1 i. .4 i 1 : r M -i3 IS VERY HARD TO FIND ME MANY VACANCIES EXIST AMONG EN. LISTED MEN TO MAN NEW SIM'S. One of the Reasons Is That Machinists anil Seamen Can Find More Profitable Km ployment on Land There Appears to be a Great Deal of Jealousy Between the Army and the Navy. Washington, D. C, Aug. 11. The navy department is finding considerable diffi culty la enlisting men to fill vacancies and to man the new ships that will soon be ready to go into commission. It Is authoritatively stated that neither the eecond class' battle ship Texas nor the armored cruiser Maine will be enabled toparticpatein'drill off Newport. Aside from the delay in procuring crews for the two ships, there are other embarass ments which will render it impossible for even the Texas, which is in the more advanced condition to 'be in commission for several weeks. The navy officials say that it is with difficulty that enlistments of seaman, machinists and others are made during the summer season At this period, men who combine a knowledge of sujh matters can always find more remuner ative employment on private yachts and along shore where a greater matter of freedom is enjoyed and where the duty is not so exacting as it Is in the navy. The business conditions, which re more satisfactory now than they have beem for several years, make it al so possible to procure work that is more satisfactory to them than serving the government. Late in the autumn, however, when the scores of private yachts shall have 'been laid up in ordin ary, the men engaged upon them will seek other employment and then the vacancies In the ranks of enlisted men will be rapidly filled. Never before has the navy depart ment been so zealous of high charac ter, intelligence, and the physical con dition of the men whom It is taking into its service. It is asserted that 90 per cent, of the applicants are rejected, for one reason or another. While more or less latitude is given to recruiting officers, the rules of the department require that no seaman, machinist, or (fireman, eMail e enlisted who 'has passed the age of thirty-five except Tie be a man who has previously served in the navy. The United States gov ernment pays Its enlisted men. better than any other nation. The rate of pay, generally, Is far in advance of that which is given to private and non-commissioned officers in the army, but the service is more exacting, and from many points of view. It is not so desirable. It Is said, for example, that the de partment finds great difficulty in in ducing the younger men to re-enlist af ter one or two services. After an ex perience of this oharacter, the men as a rule, desire to marry and seek em ployment on shore. The hope of the n'avy rests on the apprentice system, which was established many years ago. An average of 450 boys are enlisted each year for a term of service of four years. To each an excellent education is given, in addition to a thorough knowledge of gunnery, a wide familiar Ity with torpedo works and electrical engineering. Efforts are made to add to the tech nlcal training a fondness for a naval Jife 'and a respect for the service. Nev ertheless four-fifths of the boys with draw from the service on graduation and before the department has an op portunity of utilizing them in the work for which they have been trained. The reason is that the young men find ready employment in the merchant service, or in the employ of electrical telegraph and telephone companies at a better compensation than is offered by the government. Thosie who- remain In the government service are advanced as rapidly as conditions will permit- Valkyrie's Spars Arrive. New York, Aug. 11.

The steam boat wharf used by Edmund Burke at Blodgett's Landing, Sunapee Lake, gave way about 4:30 this afternoon. There was- a large number of persons on the wharf at the time awaiting the steamer's return. As the boat came near, the wharf suddenly gave way and about twenty-five men, Women: and children were precipitated Into the wa ter, which at that point is nearly ten feet deep. Others saved themselves by seizing the posts and other supports of the wharf. All were rescued from the water with much difficulty, -and many narrowly escaped drowning. Several persons were injured by a falling plank. A BICYCLIST'S Complaint ef Trumbull Street. A correspondent says: The members of a bicycle club which came through New Haven one day last week on. a "spin" rode through Trumbull street, which is considered as one of the more aristocratic thoroughfares of the city. The leader of the club later expressed his opinion that this street was the worst he had ridden over in any city or town in. the state. It is full of holes, and the -mud there is perpetual. It is thick and slimy, and two or three inch es deep, and pools of water in the cen ter of the street may be seen any day. The residents, on either side spend some time each day soaking the street with water from the hose, and are not con tented with laying the dust. But mud aside, and it is a feature which cannot be controlled by the passing of ordi nances, the street is so rough that a wheelman must needs ride slowly throughout its length or receive a ser ies of shocks to his system which make bicycling not the pleasure which it is and should be.but makes it disagreeable, and even, dangerous. Surely the city can do something to even the surface of this street, and it would seem as if action on these lines would be appre ciated by the entire public. Certainly it would by wheelmen, and they are so numerous that it would seem they were a factor in public improvements. Minneapolis Is at Newport. Newport, R. I., Aug. 11.

MET DEATH ON THE TRACKS UNKNO WNMAN STJt VCK AND KILLED EAULY & UN DAY MORNING. His Groans Awoke Es-Postinaster English Found In the Gutter Underneath the Whitney Avenue Bridge No Clue to His Identity The Authorities Investigating. Shortly after 5 , o'clock yesterday morning the body of an; unknown man waB found lying alongside of the tracks of the Northampton division of the Consolidated railroad underneath the Whitney avenue bridge. When the body. was first discovered life was not extinct and the remains were removed to the hospital, where he died shortly after his admission. The body was kept at the hospital, but had not been identified up to midnight. Shortly before 5 o'clock ex-Postmaster Benjamin R. English, who lives in the vicinity, was awakened from his sleep by groans and cries issuing from the direction of the railroad track and dis tinctly heard the words, "Take him off from me. For God's sake get off from me." Mr. English hastily dressed himself and went to the Whitney ave nue bridge and looked over the railing. Underneath in the gutter alongside the tracks he saw the body of a man. He immediately returned to his home and notified the police by telephone, telling Sergeant Cook, who was in charge, that he had better send plenty of men to assist in getting the body up the bank. The police ambulance was quickly sent to the scene with Signal Officer Bradley and Patrolmen R. T. Moore and P. J. Hayes. At the same time Medical Examiner White was notified and he, too, was soon upon the scene. After considerable trouble the body was carried up the Hillhouse avenue bank, after being carried nearly two blocks on a stretcher, and as life was not yet extinct Medical Examiner White ordered its Immediate removal to the hospital. Medical Examiner White also rode to the hospital in the ambulance. Up on the arrival there It was first thought that the man was dead, but the medi cal 'examiner detected some slight signs of life and administered a hypodermic injection of whiskey. This, however, had no effect and within a few moments the man was dead. The bones of his right knee were crushed Into splln'ters, his right foot wascompletelysevered.and only hung to his limb by a shred of skin, his right cheek broken and the arch of the temple forced into the brain. There was not fracture of the skull, but on the left side the scalp Wag sliced off as clean as though it had been cut oft with a sharp knife. There was nothing In the man's pock ers to identify him except four or five business cards of George H, Granger, an expressman of Congress avenue, a small amount of money, a clay pipe and a paper of tobacco. The victim was of medium height, about thirty-five years old, with dark brown hair and mustache, hts face cleanly shaven ex cept the mustache and wore a striped cotton shirt, black trousers, wide rib bed coat of a material similar to cor duroy, but of a. cheaper quality, and No. 9 lace shoes. Detective Sergeant Cowles was de tailed on the case yesterday and saw Granger, whose cards were found in the victim's pockets, In reference to the matter. Granger went to the hospital and viewed the remains, but was unable to tell what the victim's name was. He said, however, that he understood that the man had been employed at the rubber shop and boarded with a man named John D. Baldwin on Baldwin avenue. He also said that the unknown man had said something about going to Waterbury to get a job in the rubber shop there and he had given him 'Same of his business cards as he, Gran ger, had a brother working in Water bury. This morning the remains of the vie tim will be removed to Lewis & May cock's morgue and the Investigation as to the cause of death continued. It is supposed that the man while walking on the tracks was struck by the freight train which leaves this city about 2 o'clock and rendered unconscious, re malnlng in that condition until about the time his groans and cries awoke Mr. English, but Inquiry at the railroad offices elicited the information that no report of the accident had been made there.
