Memorial Day was Observed in Perth Amboy as on Former Occasions
..Grand Army Growing Small? Sons of Veterans Fire the Vol.
leys at the Graves? Flowers in Full Bloom.
Flags floated in the breeze, the vet
erans marched, the drnm corps played,
graves were decorated as in years
passed and thns Memorial Day came
and went in Perth Amboy. Of conrse
there was the nsual number of ball
games, picnics, outings and general
oelcbration, but the day and all it
means, passed unchanged.
The unusual warm, dry weather had
brought out the roses and flowers
whioh usually do not appear until
.Tune and the cemetery was beautiful.
Flowers were everywhere. Thev were
all sizes and oolors, arranged with all
shapes imaginable. Even though the
? sun did not shine, the cemetery has
seldom presented such a beautiful
The most noticeable featuro at the
Memorial Day exercises of late years
is the diminishing number of veterans
who participate. Saturday only about
twenty of Major Dandy Post were in
line with four of the Relief Corps.
The Westminster Cadets, the sons of
veterans, the drum oorps and the
wagons loaded with school ohildren
filled out the line so that the parade
was quite presentable.
After decorating the graves in St.
Peter's yard the volley was fired by
the sons of veterans. The parade then
proceeded to Alpine cemetery where
the Woodbridge post had arrived ahead
of them. The latter had their flowers
in all designs and were beautiful.
The local veterans placed large bou
quets which were equally pretty. A
brief service was held at the soldier's
plot, several girls sang and the veter
ans departed, each one recalling the
deeds of valor performed by their de
parted comrades. The scene was
touching for it was realized that be
fore another Deooration Day flowers
* won Id be placed on the graves of some
of those who so nobly assisted in the
work Saturday.
St. Mary's cemetery was visited and
graves there were treated in the same
genorous and thoughtful manner.
There was no other display. Flags
were raised throughout the city,
many of them at half mast. All was
quiet and the true meaning of the day
seemed to be manifested.

Elizabethport Young Men Out for
a Sail When a Squall Struck
their Boat.
Saw the Accident and Went to the Rescue

the Bottom of Overturned Craft? Se
cured Dry Clothing and Returned by
At 10.30 o'clock Saturday morning
while a cat rigged yacht was cruising
in Staten Island sound opposite Bunt
en's dock, it was struck by a sudden
squall and capsized. The six occu
pants were rescued by George and
William Bunten. The yacht was own
ed by Charles Peterson and Edward
Burke, of Elizabethport.
Saturday, being a holiday, tha
young men decided to sail to this
city, and took with them four friends,
Henry Hanson, Edward Peterson,
Jacob Randolf and Lawrence Hanson,
all of Elizabethport. They left the
port early in the morning and arrived
here at 10 o'clock.
They were all sitting on one side of
the boat when the squall struck them.
Before they could get the sheet loose
the yacht had been overturned. They
all managed to catch a hold of the
yacht and hold fast until George and
William Bunten, who saw the acoi
dent, put off in the gasoline launch.
This was done as quickly as possible.
When all were ashore the four
friends managed to buy some clothes,
which they exchanged for their wet
garments and started for home. The
owners of the boat remained here and,
with the aid of the Bunten boys,
righted the overturned craft, and after
getting the water out of her, they set
sail for home.

? 6rey Went to Pittsburg.
The Marions celebrated Decoration
Dav by winning two games of ball.
In the morning they prevailed over
New Brnnswick and in the afternoon
they were victorious in the game with
the Crescents.
The Marions had comparatively an
easy time in winning from the team
that New Brunswiok sent here. The
visitors were weak at short nnd at
third and the locals were not slow to
takes advantage of the gaps in their
opponent's infield. Beside this they
bunched their hits off Bradley rather
freely and sent eight earned rnns
across the pan. Meyer, a clever twirl
er, was in the box in place of Qrey,
who has signed with Pittsburg, and
he did good work. He fanned twelve
of the visitors and nad them always
at his meroy.
In the seventh he eased np a little
and allowed four rnns to be scored,
bnt these With a ran in the sixth were
all the New Brunswick players got.
The hitting of Meyer, Galvin, Lyons
and Moorehead and a fine catoh by
Galvin were the ga'-ce's features.
Meyer sent the ball over the fence in
the first inning scoring Mootehead.
Galvin caught a foul fly by leaning
over the fence into the grand stand.

In the afternoon the largest crowd
that ever saw a ball game in the en
closed grounds was present to see the
locals defeat the Crescents, of Phila
delphia 7 to 4. The visiting team was
late in arriving owing to imperfect
trolley connections, but the crowd
manifested no sign of impatience and
they were rewarded by seeing a very
pretty contest that was replete with
brilliant plays.
It was a game in which fast fielding
abounded and only one strike-out by
each pitoher was recorded. Dennv
pitched for the visitors and while he
was hit hard in the first and second
innings he steadied himself thereafter
and the locals were unable to score

until the eighth. The Crescents got
their first run in the opening inning.
They scored two more runs in the
eighth and another in the ninth. No
errors were charged against the Mar
ions and a fine running catch by
Tommy Lyons was the feature of their
fielding. Moorehead and Galvin led
in the batting for the locals. Meyer
played left field for the Marions in
place of Grey who took his brother's
place in the morning contest.

Box 45 was Unlocked ? Is out of
Order? Matter ? had Been Re
ported Several Times.
A false alarm was sounded from box
45 about 10 o'clock Saturday night.
The fire department answered the
alarm with the usual promptness, but
upon their arrival failed to find any
fire nor the person who turned in the
alarm. The firetaen returned to their
houses and the alarm "fire out" was
quickly turned in.
Upon investigation it was learned
from the police that this box has been
reported out of order for a long time.
That is. the outer door, which ought
to be opened with the regulation fire
key and closed onlv by the chief of
the fire department, cannot be locked
at all. Consequently an alarm might
be turned in at any time by any oiie
who desired to create trouble without
being discovered.

The Water Committee continned
their investigation into the cause of
the low water Dressure at the Smith
homestead fire, at the committee meet
ins of the Board of Aldermen Friday
night by taking the testimony of the
two engineers from Eagleswood and
Rnnyon stations. Their conclusions
are that the pnmp, which refused to
work, ib to blame.
Both engineers testified that they
did everything possible to increase
the pressure as soon as they received
word by telephone. The engineer at
the Eagles wood ran up and opened
the stand pipe, which had been kept
in reserve, as soon as he heard the
alarm and had the pnmp started by
the time he received the telephone
The pressare was also increased at
Rnnyon with bat little result at thia
end and then it was discovered that
the Eagleswood pnmp was not doing
its work. The next day this pnmp
was tested in the presence of Super
intendent Barns, when it worked all
right and they are still at a low to
account for its failure to work the day
before when it was needed.
