Young America Has Lost None of ? His Patriotism? A Delight ful Day. CITY WASjDECORATED. Cannon Crackers, Torpedoes, and Pistols Made the Usual Din? Baseball Games and Boat Race? Pleasure Resorts Crowded? Fireworks Kept the Sky Ablaze at Night. Young America in Perth A in boy has lost none of his enthusiasm for the Glorious Fourth. From suniise to sunset ther? was hardly an interval in any section of the city when there was not a racket of some kind. Fire crackers, torpedoes and pistols com bined to make the din and it was one that will easily last until the day rolls around again one year hence. Along Smith street between High and State streets the noise began Fri day night. Cannon crackers, dyna mite, revolvers and smaller firecrack ers, pack at a time, were the source of amusement. It was really a men's celebration, for it was the "older boys" who made all the noise and many bruised and blistered handB are the result. A favorite way to celebrate the Fourth was to nut torpedoes 011 the trolley tracks. The noise made by a car passing from State street to the ferry resembled a gattling gun.. The Fourth broke cloudy and muggy. There was a little spit of rain between ? and 10 o'clock, but by 11 o'clock the sun broke through and ideal weather was the result. A groat many people left the city, but they could hardly be missed for more visitors came here to spend the day than went away. There was more than the usual number of amusements for the day. Two ball games in which the Marions twice met defeat before the Equit ables ; a boat race and numerous parties going down the bay. Hun dreds of people went to Boynton Beach and Sea Breeze. At night there was a beautiful dis play of fireworks throughout the city. Perhaps the bAt place to view these was along the water front where rockets and Roman candles were visible not only from Perth Amboy, but Staten Island ajjd all alone the south shore as "well. A great many baloons were watched with interest as they floated across the sky high up over the water. . ' The worst accident recorded in this city on the Foruth was that which happened to John Wolox, twentv-two years old. This being his first Fourth of July in America, he was unused to the setting off of firecrackers and held a large sized dynamite oracker in his band, having seen some one shooting Continued on page 6 NOTICE.

The "Irene" was the First to Finish and the Last to Start? Three Prizes Awarded ?Crowds of People Witnessed the Contest which was Over Triangular Course. Never has a more successful boat race been held over the Raritan Yacht Clnb -course than on Saturday when the power boats of this vicinity raced for three handsome prizes. Of the thirty boats entered, nineteen started. The first to finish was the "Irene, entered by the Dutton Engineering Company, but belonging to W. 0. Mitohell, of Bayonne. The prize was a binnacle. The second was the "Herreshoff" of the Dutton Engineer ing Company, winning a combination head light. Third was the "Three Brothers," owned by the Kress broth ers, and they received an electric pocket lamp. Chris Fries' little boat being the last to cross the line, he was awarded the box of oaudy. No protests were filed with the referees and everything passed off very suc cessfully. The day was all that could be de sired for an ideal race. By noon the stake boats had been put in position and several boats in the harbor were decorated in honor of the event. Among these was the pilot boat "New York" which included among her detorations a handsome Raritan Yacht Club ensign. The race was scheduled to start at 1 o'clock but it was 1.35 o'olook when the "get ready" gun was fired. The officials were on board a yacht ' 'Go too" anchored off the club house dook. They were Mayor Seaman, Ju^ge. Conrad Hall, J. L. Clevengor and William Crowell, referees, and Boat Entered By Irene Herrshoff Three Bros. Dutton Eng. Co. Kress Bros. J I Anna Go Do Fly Ruth W.

Commodore Evans was kept busy in his launch, "Web," comoleting preparations. At exactly 1.41,80 the starting gnn was fired and the "Ragtime" passed over the line. Other boats followed according to their handicap. It was 2. 38, 21 when the "Irene," the laRt boat, was started, just 47 minutes and 61 seconds after the "Raff time. " By that time the latter boat had alreadv completed one lap of the triongle and was well started on her second time around. The race was three times around the triangle which was from the starting point to a stake boat off South Amboy, thence to stake boat near No. 10 buov east of the light house, and thence to the starting boat. This is a distance of nearly eleven nautical miles. For the first two laps the boats seemed to hold their own positions, but everything changed on the home stretch when they all seem ed to come in at once. As far as could be learned, the only engine that stopped during the race was in Fries' boat which was the last to finish. It was said that two boats came together near buoy No. 10 and that the "Rag time" was nearly fouled, but as no protest was entered the matter was evidently not serious. Hundreds of people gathered along the water front to watch the race. All the docks were crowded, the shore was lined with spectators, and from the balconies of the club nouses en thusiastic admirers greeted their favorites as they passed. It was the opening of the snmmet season along the water front. The bay and sound was dotted with crafts of all sizes and kinds. Everywhere was life and gaiety. It was a real awakening of interest in water sports in this city.

MARIONS DOWNED BY VISITORS. \ Equitables Take the Locals Into Camp Twice on the Fourth. EVANS DID NOT COME. Locals Disappointed by Failure of Brook lyn Twirler to put in an Appearance andfMcPhillips Pitched Both Morning and Afternoon? Costly Errors Made Great Differences in the Scores. The Marions dropped n double head er to the Equitables Saturday, losing the morning game 4 to 1 and the afternoon contest 8 to 6. The first game was a pitcher's battle and Hop per and McPhillips both pitched good ball. Headless plaving and inability to hit at critical stages cost the locals the game. The Equitables plajed fast ball and were at their best when the Marions had men on bases and seemed likely to score. In tlfe afternoon game McPhillips was again on the firing line for the Marions owing to the fact that Roy Evans failed to pat in an appearance. Lindeman pitched five innings and was relieved by Tierney, who pitched iihe sixth and seventh innings, but was batted out of the bos in the latter inning, Lindeman finishing the game. McPhillips deserves a whole lot of praise for undertaking the task to pitch in two games and is not to be criticised for the second game he twirled. Colialan was bothered with a Bore arm and coald not field his position properly. Kiernan played well in both games, and had a fast double play to his credit in the morn ing game. The 16cal contingent of the Marions, Galvin, Connelly, Kelly, Hoffner and Lyons, showed great need ( Continued, on page C. ) RESCUE AT BOYNTONS. Brooklyn Excursionist had Nar row Escape From Drowning While in Bathing. WAS GOOD SWIMMER. A mail by the name of Mulling was saved from drowning at Bovnton Beach on the afternoon of the Fourth by Herbert Eyerkess, of this city, and three young men from Brooklyn. Mallins, who is an expert swimmer, had come down to the beach from Brooklyn on an excursion. When the boat landed he, with a number of others, decided to go in swimming. They were out near the dook, Mullins some distance behind his friends, when he was getting weak. He gave one lond cry of "Help Jerry!" and then sank. His friends, thinking that he was fooling because he was left behind, only laughed ot . him. When he was going down for the second timo Eyerkess, who was on the dock, realizing that the man was really in danger, jumped overboard, and swam to his assistance. When Mullins was gotten to tl e shore it was some time before he eonld bo revived. Real estate! Real estate! Read he bargains in special column on page 2.

It was an enthusiastic reception given Major General Chaffee on Fri day evening The program was carried ont exaotly as planned notwithstand ing the rain. The general was met at Tottenville by the committee of citizens, and upon reaching this city was driven to places of interest, the route as Riven Friday being followed. General Chaffee was accompanied to Perth Amboy from Governor's Island by Capt. Hutchinson, who was with him in China, and Trumpeter Dominick McBride, of the 8th Infantry. The exercises in the church com menced about 8 o'clock, and the pro- ? gram was greatly enjoyed. The West minster Cadets gave three drills which were executed in a manner showing the careful training they have received at the hands of John A. Danner and Theodore Degeuring. ? The service calls by Trumpeter Mc Bride were exceptionally fine, and he was compelled to respond to an en core. Several choruses ladies were pleasinjjly-fctwi, ano^pifl , flag drill by twelve girls wsi vary pretty. The feature of the program follow ed these numbers, the address by General Chaffee, he being introduced by Mayor Seaman. When he was presented, the general was given a cbatauqua salute by the audience. The General has the appearance of a soldier and in his remarks he show ed he was more accustomed to doing things than telling about them. In an interesting manner he told of the benefits to be derived from such com panies as the cadets, and declared that organization was absolutely essential to military success. In the latter part of his talk, he gave an interesting description of the great wall of China, and the city of Peking, which is, the general said, four cities in one. The address was greatly enjoyed by those present, who orowaed through the parlor of the ohurch after the exercises to shake hands with this distinsruished soldier. The General's partv left this city via the 9.55 boat on the Staten Island Bargains in real estate are to be fonnd in the real estate oolumn on page 3. WEATHER.
