Ferryboat Hits Launch.
Traffic on land and water during
the early hours this morning was
hampered by the dense fog that set in
about 10 o'clock last night. The ferry
boat Perth Amboy of the Staten Island
Rapid Transit plying between this
city and Tottenville, made its way
across the sound without much troub
le during the night and the early
trips. Just as the fog began to lift the
ferryboat struck the cabin launch
Marion owned by former Commodore
Frank S. Hodge of the Bentley Yacht
Club of Tottenville. The ferryboat
was entering the Tottenville slip on
the 7:27 o'clock trip from this city,
when the launch loomed up and was
struck In the stern, turning the craft
No damage was done to the launch,
other than to break a small tender
away from Its stern. Mr. Hodge kept
right on and the small boat was
picked up and taken into Brown's
shipyard in Tottenville. Captain Ray
mond Ellis, who was in the pilot house
of the ferryboat, did not see the
launch until he had struck It because
of the fog that seemed to hang over
the water just at that place. Many
passengers and commuters from this
city, that take the express on the Rapid
Transit, witnessed the accident. A
second more and the launch would
probably have been cut In two.

Rector street, received a fractured
skull last night as a result of falling

the corner of Madison avenue and
Jefferson street.
For the past week these large
drums, which are about six feet in
diameter and used for carrying heavy
cable, have been lying in this field
and many boys have enjoyed them
selves by climbing on top and seeing
how far they can roll them using
their feet alone. Young Roberts, it
is understood, who is one of the best
athletes among the boys of his age,
was on one of these drums when lie
fell, striking his forehead. He was!
(akon, unconscious, to the Y. M. C. A.

Cottrell. The city ambulance was
called and the boy was rushed to the
hospital, where it was neccssary for
Dr. George W. Fithian, the family
doctor, to operate, removing some of
the bone which was pressing on the
boy's brain. 1'pon regaining con
sciousness young Roberts seemed
much better and it is believed that lie
will recover. His condition this
morning was improved.
