WANT THE FERRY AT
Petition being Drawn up for Property Owners in That Vicinity to
Sign but will Wait to see if they get the Pavement? Claim
Washington Street is more in Centre of the City.
As told in the News last w?ck, a
spirited movement is on foot in regard
to tho change in location of the ferry
sliD o? thistaton Island Rapid Transit
ou this side of the sound. In .the de
sire that it shonld be changed, but
not to Fayette street, as iB favored by
the (Officials of the road, the property
owners on Washington street are
speaking of the foot of their street as
the now site.
When seen by a News reporter this
morninc Jacob Goldberger said that
he was starting such a movement, and
had begnn to draw no a petition in
favor of the selection of Washington
street by the railroad company. No
thing will be done towards circulating
this petition, however, until the pro
perty owners hear definitelv as to
whether or not they are to sooure the
brick pavement which is desired. If
they are successful in regard to the
p.ivement, the petition will be immed
iately presented to the owners for
their signatures. They are desirous
of having the boat land at the foot of
their street bocause of tho increase in
property valuation that would be occa
sioned and in addition they argue that
tho trip across from Tottenville to
Washington street would be still
shorter than to Fayette. Much inter
est, therefore, attaches to the outcome
of the movement for a vitrilied brick
It is also argued in favor of Wash
ington street that by landing there
the ferrv will be more nearly in the
c niter of the city as that thoroughfare
loads out to all sections by direct

ture hammer pin as a souvenir.
The bake, in charge of James Took
or, was all that could bo desired. It
was served about 10 o'clock. After
tho bake the cigars were lighted, and
the Supreme Grand Knocker, Victor
Main, was presented with a very large
and handsome mallet as a token of
the intense hatred in whicJJ ho is held
by his ancient order. Mr. Main re
sponded in a happy vein, expressing
his appreciation of the gift and in
tention to use it in a practical way,

The Marions hart an easy time of it
Saturday winning as they pleased
from the Star A. O by a score of 7 to
1. The visitors fielded badly at times
and this faot conpled with their in
ability to hit, aided the locals in se
curing the victory. Gilroy was touch
ed up rather lively, but many of the
hits credited to the Marions were
flukes and with fair support Gilroy
would have kept the score much
McPhillips pitched his first game
for tho Marions and gave genuine sat
isfaction. Ho allowed the Stars only
three hits and had them at his mercy
throughout the game. He fielded his
position magnificently, accepting the
unnsual number of nine chances in
perfect fashion. He got a stinging
line drive and a high foul in
clever stylo. McPhillips also handled
the stick well, rapping two singles
and scoring two runs.
The Marions' new player at third,
Oohalan, had little work to do in the
field, but he handled himself well.
The Stars got their only run in the
sixth as the rosult of two sing'es and
a stolen base.
The Marions two runs in the first
inning on Kiernan's triple, singles by
Oohalan and Galvin and an error by
Hook. Two more runs came in the
fourth on McGuire's error and singles
by McPhillips, Moorehead and Kier
nan. In the seventh, singles by Gal
vin and Hoffner and a bad throw by
Kennedy yielded another run. The
final tallies came in the eighth when
hits by McPhillips and Cohalan and
an error by Harnish netted two runs.
Next Saturday the Marions will
play two games at home, in the morn
ing and in tho afternoon. The Equit
ables will be the Marions' opponents

As soon as the weather will permit

will commence. The pastor, Rev. B.
T. O'Connell. is greatly pleased with
the way things are now progressing.
At all the masses yesterday he spoke
at length on the new building. He
said the time for the payment of the

mains $3,000 to be collected the pastor
urged the people of the parish to bear
this in mind and next Sunday tiy to

The amonnt promised in all to .start

first payment, will doubtless be made.

The Lincoln 'Hose Company failed
to respond to the alarm of Are turned
in from box 83 Saturday afternoon be
cause there were no horses available
at Liddle & Pfeiffer's stables to take
their truck to the fire. The lire was
discovered in a bed in the home of
Nels Johnson at 281 Washington
street. It was quickly extinguished,
almost before the Protection Hook A
Ladder Company reached the house.
Since the fire, however, many per
sons have taken the trouble to oriti
cise the action or rather .inaction on
the part of the Lincoln Hose Com
pany. A News reporter learned from
Fire Chief Comings that the Linooln
Hose Company have orders to wait
for horses before going to a fire iu
every case except box 86. Several
members of the company were at the
house ready to go to the fire, but not
even one horse was in the stable and
Mr. Pfeiffer could not get one any
where. When asked why the members
did not pull the truok to the fire
Chief Comings said there was no
attachment by which they conld poll
The Lincolns are supposed to answer
every alarm. With this fact in view
Chief Comings requested the Board of
Aldermen to give this company a team
of horses in making up their new
schedule, bnt they said it was cheaper
to hire the horses from the livery
stable close by. Chief Comings says
he called attention to the fact that
horses might be all out some time bnt
the board is quoted as saying that
was very improbable. The tAnnbers
