DOES BIG DAMAGE
Firemen of Keyport and Mata

That Destroys 20 Houses al
Midnight—Lack of Water.
Keansburg, May 10—A Are thai
threatened to wipe out the New Point
Comfort section of this place started
about midnight, and before It wai
cheeked had completely destroyed
about twenty houses, the most ol
• which were new and just furnished
The building's were two-etorj
frame structures, valued at from
$1,000 to $8,000 each, and with th«
furnishings it le estimated the total
damage will amount to $100,000. Sev
eral of the houses had been rented
but none occupied.
The Are which wiped out the block
bounded by Center avenue, Hlgl
avenue, New Point Comfort Beach
] way, and Grand avenue started al
I Grand and Center avenues, outside
' of α building with fifteen apart
! mente. The blaze was discovered
by Prof. Henry Clark, whose house
Is within the block.
An alarm brought three engin»
companies, but the water pressure
was bad and the flames were soor
beyond their control.
A call for help was sent out to sur
rounding towns, and soon apparatui
from Red Bank, Atlantic Highlands
Keyport and Matawan was on the
way. Red Bank and Matawan sent
high pressure auto trucks, which
ι pulled up on the boardwalk and got
water from the ocean. The firemen
from Red Bank directed their atten
tion to the home of Prof. Clark, which
was the only building on the block
The flames could be seen for miles
and soon automobile# from towns and
cities far away were on their way tc
Keansburg. Thêy were so numeroui
they blocked the way of the fire en
gines coming to help.
Some owners of the cottages com

HEAR MYSTERIOUS RUST
Residents of the northern section
of the city and the lower end ol
Htaten Island were startled shortlj
before midnight last night at the loud
report that sounded like an explosion
or some heavy gun firing. The sound
seemed to come from the Matirei
section but all effort to locate where
and what It was could not be ascer
tained. Officials at several of thi
large plants in that section disclaim
any knowledge of an explosion or
loud reports of a gun. In several
places on Staten Island the houses
fairly shook and crockery was almost
shaken from closets. Many people
who had gone to bed were aroused al
the heavy blasts.

! WHEN BOAT OVERTURNS
Industrial Secretary Α. C. Lee of the
j local Y.M.C.A. had somewhat of^n un
usual experience this morning wheo a
sailboat In which he had been enjoy

about a quarter of a mile off nhore. He
had been experimenting without the
centreboard and had just gotten into
a skiff which he was towing behind the
sailboat when a grist of wind oaught
the sails apd over the larger boat went.
He rowed ashore after the larger boat
had been anchored. Several of those
living alongshore saw the sailboat hnd
sunk but did not know the occupant
