John Hennessey of the Lehigh Valley Tug Ganoga is in the City Hospital with a Bullet Through His Pight Lung—Charles J. Hathaway Arrested Charged with the Crime. John Hennessey, of the Lehigh 1 Valley tugboat Ganoga, was shot in . the right breast yesterday afternoon. Charles J. Hathaway, chief engineer on the same boat, is locked np.aceused of doing the shooting. The bullet went through Hennessey’s right lung and is now somewhere in his back. An effort will be made to remove it today. Tlie shooting occurred in Frit* Speer’s saloon on Front street, about 4 o’clock. Officer William McDermott 1 heard the shot and ran into the Diace as the bartender was coming out for help. He found Hennessey on a lounge in a side room where he had been helped after the assault. Hath way had fled from the saloon after firing and gone to the boat which was lying at Hall's dock. He had hidden himself in the lower hold and was found in his concealment b~ the officer who immediately arrosted him. The two men. together with a third boatman, met outside of the saloon and entered together. They called for drinks and Hathaway ana the other man are said to have drank theirs. An argument started and Hennessey struck Hntahway with his fist, it is alleged. Without any warning accord ing to statement made the man jerked out a small thirty-two cali bre revolver and shot. Hennessey fell to tho floor. Ho was picked up and taken to a side room. Word was sent to police headquart ers and Sergeant Dunham responded. Officer McDermott returned with his man. Hennessey identified him as the one firing the shot. The wounded man bled but little. Dr. G. W. Fithian, who was called, exnmined the wound'nnd had the man t.nfepn £n tlip lincnihnl Win Ip hiu in. jnry is very serious he may recover. When the officer arrestea Hathway he is said to hare admitted having committed the deed. This morning in court he refused to talk without consulting a lawyer. He is held. Bad blood has existed between the principals for some time acoordiug to the stories told. Hathaway was hired during the marine strike on the Val-i loy and considerable bad feeling has been held against him beoanse he is known as a non-union engineer. Shortly after he was engaged, Hen nessey was reduced from his position as pilot to deckhand. For this he claimed Hathaway was responsible and the two have had several clashes. The revolver was found this morn , ing shorty before noon. It had five chambers, one of whioh was empty. Hathaway said he had thrown the wenpon overboard. A search revealed it beneath some coal in one of the bunkers. The chief detective of the Lehigh Valley railroad, O. Lyden, ; and Superintendent of Tugboats, John T. Clark, visited Hathaway ii.|his oell at noon. After carefully investigat ing they found the case did not con cern them, as it happaned off the boat. This afternoon it was stated that the doctors did not think it advisable to attempt to remove he bullet today. Advertising is the life of trade. INVEST YOUR MONEY ; near Amboy new bridge.

FREE DELIVERY For Specials see Page 2 i CITY HOSPITAL IS IN NEED OF $600. A Morgue and a Reception Room Should be Built at Once-Fund Started to Raise the Money People are Called Upon to Contribute-Twen ty-five Cents from Each Person. At the meeting of the Board o( Governors of the Hospital, Friday night, it was pointed out that the hospital is greatly in need of a recep tion room for patients and a morgne for dead bodies. At the present time any sick person who may be foond on the street and harried to the institu tion has to be taken in where all the other patients have been taken, before it is definitely known whether or not the disease is contagions. A recep tion room is one that can be washed and scrubbed from top to bottom and thoroughly disinfected. A morgne is needed as at present, it waB stated, dead bodies occasionally have to be placed in wards with the sick. It is admitted that this is wrong and it is np to the people of Perth Amboy, whose relatives and friends nae the hospital, to make the necessary change*. That the hoapital is a necessity in Perth Amboy h*a been demonstrated and it is np to tbe local people to snpply its need*. There is no one who will deny that * reception room and morgne are abeolete necessities. The loosl people, who tak* pride in the institntion, should anpply them. This is a chance to m*k* a Christmas offering. It is stated that 9M0 will build both. If over ti,000 can be raised for a carnival fnud lor the amusement of tne people it would seem that $600 could be raised for something so worthy. This is a mat ter which touches the people them selves and if everybody should give twenty-five centB each, the money could be raised. Let everyone give what they can. The Evening News lias secured the sanction of the president, S. R. Far rington, to raise such a fund and this paoer starts off the list with a contri bution of $10. Let others follow. There is to be no begging. The cause is too worthy to make it necessary for a list to be passed. The call is for a voluntary Christmas offering for this need of the hospital. Send in your contributions at onoe, any amount will be gladly received and all will be duly credited in the col umns of the Evening NewB. Address contributions to Hospital Fund, Even ing News office.
