this borongh and asked him to loan
him a dollar as he was going to New

he would give it to -e butcher when

RESCUES AT PATERSON.
Many Were Saved by Life Rope
Goan.
NEW YORK. Oct. 13.—Fire Com
missioner Sturgis received a letter
from Mayor Hinchliffe of Paterson,
N. J., thanking him for the loan of a
New York city tire department life line
gun. The letter informed Mr. Sturgis
that with the breeches buoy success
fully manipulated by means of the gnn
many lives had been saved which oth
erwise must have been lost iu the flo
which raged in Patcn®iYy-^ r°
While the its
water rising and hundreds ci>W
steam launches proved inefficient against
the swift currents, and attempts at
rescue iu them were very dangerous
for tlie rescuers.
Then Mayor Hinchliffe thought of
tlie life rope guns used by the New
York tire department. He communicat
ed with Mr. Sturgis by telephone and
received the latter's quick permission
to barrow one of tlie implements.
By means of it ropes were hurled
across the waters in Paterson to .sec
ond and even third story windows. On
the roiies. made fast over window sills,
women and children and men were
swung to safety.
TIctc are ! n families homeless now
in Paterson be. ause of tlie flood, but it
is believed that the greatest peril has
passed. The water is steadily falling
and has now gone four feet below the
high mark reached. Tlie only danger
now is that tlie huge water mains at
Spruce street lull may break because
of the pressure of dirt on them and
flood a new section of the city.
