Let us then come and deck their W graves with tokens of undying friend ship, and, as we are taught to do, forget every foible of their nature that was human and remember only iheir virtues and their loyalty to country and flag. Very soon other hands will be per forming the same oflioes for us who now remain. May our work be so well done that we shall merit kind nesses from those who succeed us.

NO WATER AT THE HOSPITAL Serious State of Affairs at the Institution-Supply Carted in Street Sprinkler. PRESSURE IS LOW. The scarcity of oity water was the oause of taking the street sprinkler oat of commission a day or two ago, but yesterday the low pressure was the means of putting it to work attain, bnt in an entirely different way than formerly. The pressure has become so low that no water can be had at the Oity Hospital and the sprinkler was used to oart water to the institu tion. For the past few days the water pressure has been so low that it has been almost impossible to even get a half pail full at a time, but it reached a climax yesterday when try as they would, the people in charge of the hospital oould get no water at all. President S. R. Farrington, of the Board of Governors, was notified of the state of affairs and he secured the sprinkler from Edward Dorsey and, taking a team and a man from his own employ, he brought a cart load of water to the relief of the hospital. Nothing is mote necessary at a hos pital than water and the fact that there is not enough pressure in the city to force water up there is a ser ious problem. This also means that hundreds of people are doing witnout oity water today. SEA BREEZE OPENS SEASON TOMORROW. Warm Weather has Caused Man agement to Hasten Work? Grand Opening Memorial Day. Sea Breeze will begin the season tomorrow. Although the Grand Open ing will not take place until May 30, Memorial Day, the warm weather and sudden arrival of actual summer has caused the proprietor, Joseph Fiigen, to rush the work, so as to meet the demands for a place to go these hot night.

Was in the Pilot House when the Heavy Timber Crashed Through the Roof Was Assisted to the Deck and Dr. Brace was Summoned? Able tj Make the Trip to New York as Usual. At 4.20 o'clock yesterday afternoon while the crew of the steamer St. Mioliaels were using the steam hoist ing boom to unload some iron at the steamboat dook on Front street, the main guy rope, which holds the boom to the spar, broke. The crew was re moving the last bundle of iron and had put about a ton and a half into the sling. The word was given to the engineer to hoist when, with the first strain, the rope snapped bringing the boom down with a'crash. The roof of the pilot honse was smashed and Captain John Briegs, who was in the pilot honse at the time, came near losing his life. The boom had no sooner struck the pilot house than the crew began clearing the wreckage away, while others went to the aid of Captain Briegs. He was taken ont on the upper deck, and Dr. Brace summoned. After a careful examination the dootor said the cap tain was not very badly injured, he having received a few bruises. He was able to take command of his boat on the last trip and as soon as the wreckage was cleared awav, the boat started on her trip to New York. When the boom of the St. Michaels went crashing through the pilot house a team of horses attached to a heavy wagon, belonging to the C. Pardee Steel plant, became frightened at the noise and dashed wildly up the steam boat dock to Front street. When turning into the street the heavy wagon struck one of the posts on Hartman's porch and knocked it down. The iron railing around the porch was also badly damaged. The horses turned into Smith street but the hill was too much for them and they were caught before any more damage .was done. BAND REORGANIZED; MEETS EVERY WEEK. Members now Number Eight and More are Expected to Join No Concerts in Sight. The band has now been reorganized and the members are practising every Wednesday night at Hartman's Hotel. Eight members have thus far pnt in an appearance, but more will join them shortly. When the players got together some of the old familiar tunes pealed forth with remarkably good time^and aroused much enthusi asm and renewed interest. In speaking with one of the r mem bers this morning a News reporter learned that for the present they have no idea of giving concerts. It could not be accomplished with eight pieces, but it was stated that if all of the old band should get together, concerts could be given. In the meantime they will practice every Wednesday night with the hope that something will turn up in the near future. > Why not have the telephone that your friends and neighbors have. $18.00 a year for residences.

Perth Amboy has not seen a team of Cuban players since 1897 when an excellent team opposed the Marions.

The game with the All Cubans is rather in the nature of a treat offered by the man agement of the Marions to the base ball enthusiasts here and it is thought that the fans will show their appre ciation by turning out in large numbers.
