Sea Breeze, Boyuton Beach and
Pulaski Park Reap Benefit from
Sunshine on "Saturday.
The first real sunshine for several
weeksf smiled upon this section of
Now Jersey Saturday and the people
were not slow in taking advantage of
it. The largest crowds for soveral
weeks thronged the resorts in this
vioinity, all glad of an opportunity to
get out of.doors.
At Boynton Beach the placo was
crowded. ,?The steamer H. O. Ellis,
which was put into commission be
tween'the resort and South Amboy,
Tottenville and this city for the first
time. Droved a great success and was
quite an attraction in itself.
The barge "John Spears" brought
an exoursion of several hundred chil
dren and adults to the beach Satur
day. It was under the auspioes of
the Bergen Reformed church, of Jer
sey Oity. The smaller children were
under the care of teachers, while the
older ones enjoyed the various amuse
ments at the resort. A baseball game
between two teams of boys attracted
a good-sized crowd and a company of
cadets from the church attended in a
body. Saturday, being warm, was
quite suitable for bathing, and many
enjoyed the swimming during the
early part of the day. At the lunch
hour the excursionists camped out at
the long tables in the rear of the
The barge was scheduled to start on
the return trip at 3.30, but, although
the little ones '.were marshalled into
line at 3 o'clock, it was fully an hour
later before the boatload pulled out
from the pier.
One of the largest excursions that
has ever been at Sea Breeze camo to
that place Saturda5 afternoon. A
steamer and three barges brought at
least 3,000 childron from Hoboken.
They were on one of the annual free
air outings and they certainly seemed
to enioy it. During their stay the
pointr was very breezy in every sense
of ttf /vord. The swings ana merry -
g?7 busy and the little
0Jj/ ffn joyed the fine sandy beach.
At Pulaski Park the usual Saturday
night dance was very popular. The
floor was crowded all the time. The
park is handy and the people delight
to drop in there for their amusement.

which will be held in the Cumberland
County Court house, Bridgeton, on

tional and international trade unions
in the American Federation of Labor
for the purpose of aiding and assisting
each other, and securing State and
national legislation in the interests of
the wage workers and influencing
public opinion by peaceful and lawful
methods in favor of organized labor.
No question of a political character
can be entertained, received or acted
upon by the convention.
The basis of representation is two
delegates for every union that has 50
membeis or less, throe delegates for
unions of 50 to 100 members, and one
delegate for every additional 100
members or a majority fraction there
of, and one delegate for each central

Supt. Atkins, of the Turner & Sey
mour Manufacturing Company, of
Torrington, Conn., has an aversion to
looking-glasses. When tho 2C0 girls
omployed by the concern reported for
duty yesterday they saw that their
mirrors had been removed. At first
they suspected theft, but thev were
told by their foreman that orders had
been given to destroy them all. Tho

time is devoted by the girls to study

threaten to strike.
A general strike of all the freight
handlers employed .by the railroads
contering in Chicago may follow the
calling out of the Chicago and Alton
men. According to Mr. Curran, presi
dent of the Freight Handlers' Union,
unless the management of the Alton
road recedes from the stand takon, it
will be necessary to extend the strike
to the other linos to enforce tho un
ion's demand.
Freight handlers employed by the
Alton road quit work yesterday be
cause two union men had been dis
charged. There is no question of
wages in tho controversy. as loss than
a month ago all the roads signed a
new scale granting the freight hand
lers a substantial increase.

tmerlva Cap Yacht* Will Sail Six
Trial S|?Iiin.
NEWPORT, It. I., June 29.? For the
first time since tiie rival cup yachts
Reliance, Constitution and Columbia
began the season's racing they were all
at their moorings in Ncwj/? t harbor,
fully prepared for a continuation of
their interesting contests in the six
faces which have been arranged off
this port on every day this week by
the New York Yacht club.
While the day's winner in each will
probably receive some emblem from
the club, the races have been planned
more as a test of the yachts in the 1
open sea and in the strong winds which |
usually prevail at this point ou the
coast. The contests will also have
some hearing with the America's cup j
committee in the selection of a defend ,
er of the cup against Shamrock III., I
although what are known as the official
trial races will not take place until the
last of nextftuonth.
Up to thte present time the three
yachts have sailed eight finished races,
and in each one the latest aspirant for
cup defending honors, Reliance, has
finished in the lead, although, owing to
secrecy regarding the actual measure
ments of the two boats, there is some
question whether or not Constitution
did not win two of them because of
her smaller sail area, as in each case
she was scarcely two minutes behind
the Reliance at the line.
No Verdict Yet In Jone* Murder.
CHARLOTTE, N. C., June 20.? A
special from Wilson, N. C., says: "The
jury has not yet agreed on a verdict in '
the Jones murder case. They now
have had the case more than twenty
four hours, and there is no indication
that they are ready to render a verdict.
Judge Shaw visited the courthouse,
but was told by the officer that no ver
dict had ben reached. It begins now
to look like a mistrial. The judge,
however, has decided to keep the jury
together until all hopes of a verdict are
given up, and It is probable that he
will keep them together all of this
week if they fail to agree."
