Big Cistern being Erected at the Chemical Works {
Caved in and Injured Three—One is Now in
the Hospital—Injuries are not Serious—Had
to be Dug Out. I
- v
Jolin Levisky, a Hungarian, John
W. Hangon and Abijali Riggs were
injured yesterday iu the cave-in of a
portion of a cistern which they aro
building at the new plant being erect
ed in Buckingham avenue for the
Chemical works. The acccident
occnrrod at 4 o'clock. Levisky is in
the city hospital and the other two
men aro cut and scratched in soveral
places but not enougli to confino them
to their homes.
The cistern is eight feet long, ten
feet high and twelve feet wide. It
has been building for three weeks and
is being done in sections ot ten or
twelve feet. The part which caved
iu was near the end. The top of the
cistern is curved and the masonry is
built over false work known as
“centre.” It wus in moving this
centre, 8x12 and weight 5b0 pounds,
that the accident happened. Eight
men were engaged. When the braces
were knocked out the center came
down too suddenly and the mason
work was unable to stand the strain
of its own weight. It fell and about
two tons of iron, mortar bricks and
the heavy centre fell. Riggs and the
Hungarian were directly under it and
Riggs, seeing that his companion was
in a tighter place than he, attempted
to hold the centre np. This was im
possible and he narrowly escaped be
ing crushed under the wreckage.
Tho Hungarian could not get out
and the whole mass covered him. His
screamB were so agonizing that it was
thought he was dying. Men tore
away the bricks with their hands.
The man was taken out bleeding from
cuts in the head and shoulder. The
Raritan Copper Works ambulance was
called and the man was taken to the
hospital. Now he is doing well.
None of his injuries are serious.
The weight of the falling mass was
increased by an enormous iron cap
which has been placed on the manhole
opening. The cistern has two of these
and one was at this place. The other
five mon got out from under the mass
before it fell and were unhurt.

cused of Stealing a Blanket
Valued at $5
Special to the Evening News.
New Brunswick, Nov. 12;—Fred
and Edward Johnson, aged eighteen
and fifteen respectively, both of South
Amboy, were arraigned in court this
morning accused of stealing a blanket
at South Amboy, valued at $5. John j
Gaub, is the owner of the blanket. t
Their trial was fixed for Saturday f
morning. t
When the judge saw Edward, who
is small for his age, he ordered that
the boy be sent home until the dav
for trial. The boy’s mother is dead ,
and the l'ad said he would rather stay (
in jail with his brother. Both are ,
kept in women s wards on account of ,
their size. ' ,
Dock B is Not Yet Fully Repaired—
Men Working Every Oth
f r Day.
The Lehigh Valley dock A is being i
worked full timo every day, twelve
hours. The men from B dock alter
nate with the men from A dock. This
makes the men work every other day.
A dock is being worked very much
lately. There is a large amount of
coal in the stock yards and a lot in ,
South Plainfield. Much of this is
nosv being shipped. A number of
Bee Line barges are lying idle at B
dock awaiting orders.
Since the B dock shut down on the
1st of August, the dock working has
only been used two nights. It is very
likely that it willjjbe three weeks be
fore the B dock, which has just been
repaired, will start, as the repairs are
not yet completed. The rails have
not been laid on B dock yet but it is ;
likely they will be soon. A delay
was caused by the frogs not arriving.
They are now on hand but it will be j
the end of the month beforo the dock
is ready for work.

P.O. Building. Perth Amboy, N.J
Yesterday afternoon the authorities
at the Centrnl freight station notified
Officer Wood that there was a large
amount of nitro-glycerine at their
office and they feared an accident if
it was not removed at once. The
police cannot act upon the matter as
Chief nnrke says that as anything
affecting the lives or safety of the
people from an agency which is not
human, comes under the Board of ,
Health’s jurisdiction and that as a t
menace they should take steps to re- ,
move it. Dr. W. E. Ramsay says the ,
matter does not affect the Board ot
Health. Who is to dispose of the ,
matter, furnished food for mnch
There are four cases of the nitro
glycerine, fifty pounds each. This
makes a total of 200 pounds of an ex
plosive ten times as powerful as ,
dynamite and three quarters of a *"
pound of dynamite will blow up three
tons of solid rock. What will happen
if it goes off is worrying the officials
of the freight station.
John H. Gregory had the stuff taken
to the station Monday. He had sold
it to a New Y’ork man and wanted it
shipped by freight. The boxes have ,
each a little printing on an end tell* £
inn the nature of the contents. When
the freight men read these notices ^
they held fthe packages until”word
could be received from the General ,
Traffic Agent at Jersey City. They
consented to hold the stuff until ad £
vice was received from headquarters. ,
Headquarters refused to have the
explosive taken over the road. Mr.
Gregory was notified and requested to
remove it. He refused, saying he had
sold it to another mao. This morn- j
ing Mr. Gregory went to New York, j
It is thought he may have gone to -
untangle things. Just how long the .
stnff will stny at the Central station
is worrying the men there. If that ^
two hundred pounds comes in violent
contact with something else, Perth ^
Amboy will think that the dynamite ^
boat Vesuvius had thrown one of her
projectiles into the city. Nitro is
queer stuff. Unconfined it will burn
without causing nny more mischief ^
than so much paper, but put it in a
tight can and strike it hard enough
and there will be trouble.

Plans are being completed to start a t

of the movement. He is a member of q

about the matter and they have 1
approved the plan. As soon as enough 8
interest is assured to make a turn
verein a success, the organization will
take place. In Newark both turn

There now seems every prospect
that the Raritan Copper Works will
have plenty of work all winter long.
Besides the large number of men put
to wora on Monday, another gang was
given work today. The Copper Works
is one of the largest industries of the
town, and every one will be glad that
there is plenty of work.
