NEW YORK, July 6.— The wife of Cap
tain. Tiemann N. Horn of the Ninety-fifth
Company, Seacoast Artillery; his daugh
ter Frances, aged 7 years, and -Miss Alice
Mcilahon of Nyack, N. Y., were drowned
off Sandy Hook to-day. Captain Horn,'
who is stationed at Fort Hancock, on
Sandy Hook, had made up a sailing par
ty to go out on the bay in his small cat
rigged yacht Midget. Those aboard in ad
dition to the captain were Mrs. Horn artd
two children, a second Mrs. Horn (sister
in-law of the captain), Dr. Waterhouse
and wife and Miss Alice McMahon, a sis
ter of Mrs. Waterhouse.
When a half-mile off Old Camp Low
dock a strong puff of wind, caused the sail
to go, and in a moment the little vessel
capsized, throwing all into the water. The
captain and Dr. Waterhouse made every
effort to save the women and children,
but a strong ebb tide quickly swept them'
beyond reach, and before other help could
be had Mrs. Horn, Frances and Miss Mc-
Mahon were drowned. . /
The oth'ers clung, to the mast of the
capsized vessel for about fifteen minutes'
until a sailboat containing W. B. Tait of'
Atlantic Highlands, N. J., and Walter'
lubbs of this city came up and rescued
Mrs. Waterhouse. At the same time Cap

our favor. We are not discouraged by
our work since the- beginning of the
strike. We will win. No men have gone
back at all." \
To-morrow will begin the third month
of the great coal strike. There have been
many rumors and opinions published that
certain coal companies would within a
few days attempt to start one or more
collieries, but officials of the big compa
nies who are willing to talk deny all
knowledge of any attempt to resume, op
erations. They say, however, that the
number of men applying for work is
growing larger each week. Many of them
are given employment and the names of
the others are placed on the waiting list.
The number of miners among the appli
cants for work is very small, and so long
as the miners themselves refrain from-feo-.
ing to the collieries no coal can be mined.
A press correspondent to-day sought
the opinion of the strikers' officials as to
how long they expected the strike to last,
and those of mining superintendents as
to whether the price of coal would go up
or down during the coming autumn. The
labor leaders were unanimous in the be
lief that the strike would still- be in pro
gress on September 1 if the operators
made no concessions. The company of
ficials were of the opinion that the price
of coal during the remainder of this year
would not go below present figures, a.nd
might g» higher.
NEW YORK, July 6.-John Mitchell,
president of the mine workers, arrived in
New York to-night." He said he was in

about his Journey, but it is learned on
trustworthy authority that he went to

The purpose of the meeting is not defi

to have direct bearing on the question of
labor organizations affiliated with the
American Federation of Labor assisting
the Miners' Union financially. : It Is
known that some of these organizations

The place where he is said .to live is
in. the heart of the forest. Dense under

combine with the virgin timber to make

Nothing definite can be learned of Tra
cy's brother-in-law. The farmers do not
know his name, but many of them state
positively that he lives about fifteen miles
north of Bothell in the woods. Some say
they have known of the relative's exist
ence for a long time, but never paid any
attention to him until the convict's es
As a result of these developments it is
held at Bothell that Tracy went to the
cabin Friday night and there waited for
the buggy. When he left he did not take
his outfit. It was a meager one at best,
and contained nothing that could not
be replaced easily by his supposed rela
tive. Vv"
At first it was believed that the original
searchers had been afraid to examine the
cabin thoroughly. Evidence was found by
Sheriff Cudihee that the loft, which is well
lighted, was searched by the Bothell men.
Rogers, who directed the latter, proved
himself one of the most efficient men of
the posse and he declares that the place
was thoroughly examined.
The finding of Tracy's outfit in the
cabin is cited in support of the contention
that Tracy escaped in the mysterious
buggy. The loft of the cabin was search
ed Friday afternoon by a party In charge
of Al Rogers, Constable of. Bothell. It
contained nothing belonging to the mur
derer. Deputy Sheriff John McClellan of
Thurston County went over it the next
day and found the outfit.
The buggy was driven south from Both
ell beyond Wayne. It passed a point
guarded by Depiity Sheriff Frank P.
Erewer and Deputy Sheriff James Wool
ery, and stopped at the cabin where
Tracy killed Raymond. It then turned
and sped toward Bothell, passing the dep
uties again. No trace whatever has been
found of the vehicle since then. No one
In Bothell drove out along the county
load that night. The general belief is
that it passed on through the town. The
night was pitch dark and a heavy rain
was falling. It is believed that the mid
night travelers drove by the deputies at
the Greenleaf building unnonticed.
The mysterious buggy seen on the coun
ty road near Wayne Friday night, was.
driven, in the; opinion of Bothell people,
by the brotber-iri-law. The convict left
this side of the' Sound at Meadow Point
for Port Madison. From Bothell the
county road runs via Fremont and Bal-
Iard to Richmond beach. Another road,
however, leaves the county road several
miles above Bothell and runs to the vicin
ity of Meadow Point It Is used but rare
ly. Along this second road, if the theory
of the Bothell people is correct, Tracy
was driven in the buggy. Once he had
passed through the posses' line?* on the
north of Bothell he would meetno oppo
sition whatever.
That Tracy has relatives near Bothell
who aided him to escape from the posse
at that place is the opinion of % nearly
every resident of "the little town. They
state that the murderer's brother-in-law
lives somewhere in the woods about fif
teen miles north of the town, and that to
reach him has been Tracy's chief object
since he left Thurston County in the gas
oline launch.
A special dispatch to the Post-Intelli
pencer from its Washington (D. C.) cor
respondent reads as follows; "No order
was issued from the Treasury Department
directing the revenue cutter Grant to join

country. The Government vessels pro

Cross Cadets, assembled for the
military mass this morning.
The day was a glorious one for calm
and sunshine, and the solemn ceremony
was unusually impressive. Every cadet
in the camp was in attendance and hun
dreds of townsfolk and other visitors
gathered about the altar, which had been
beautifully decorated by the ladies of the
Church of the Holy Cross. .
The regiment marched to the mass in
column of companies and formed a hol
low square in front of the improvised
sanctuary. At the consecration the mem
bers of the regiment knelt, at the eleva
tion the Papal salute was given with the
sabers and the roll of the drums served
instead of the sanctus bell. The celebrant
of the mass was the Rev. Philip O'Ryan,

creeks rose rapidly, overflowing their
banks and sweeping away houses and
barns and livestock. The loss will reach

Mr. Cortelyou will spend most of thu
summer at Oyster -Bay or within easy
reach of that- place. V Some time durins
the season he hopes \to put aside wonc
entirely for a short vacation, leaving As
sistant Secretary Loeb in charge during
his absence.
The meager hotel accommodations here
will go far toward giving the President
that rest and freedom from unnecessary
official cares which he has made it plain
to every one" he desires. What scant ac
commodations there are have been al
ready pre-empted, and persons arriving
here from this time on during the Presi
dent's stay wilt probably find themselves
without a place to sleep.
The President spent a. restful night at
Sagamore Hill. Even the howling of tho
family dog, which was kept up contin
uously, did not disturb his slumbers. He
arose early and attended services in
Christ Episcopal Church. In his car
riage were Miss Carew, his son Archie
and Lieutenant Ferguson of the Rough
Riders, who te hla guest. While waiting
for Mrs. Roosevelt and the rest of tho
family, the President stood outside of tho
church and greeted his friends. To- a
newspaper man he laughingly remarked
that Mra Roosevelt and the children wero
coming along in an express wagon.
The people of Oyster Bay seem - to re
sent the presence of the Secret Servlco
men, as they belive that the President
is perfectly "safe from bodily harm. The
strictest surveillance is maintained de
spite these protestations.
. OYSTER BAY, 1*. Y., July 6.— In dis
"cussing the President's stay at Oyster
Bay, Secretary Cortelyou to-day said that
there seemed to be considerable misappre
hension as to some features of it. He sasJ
that there would be no elaborate office
established, and that the clerical force
maintained would consist of two stenog
raphers. Arrangements have about been
concluded fcr the use of two rooms in
the bahk. building for office purposes, and
it v.\\\ be there that the President will
transact most of . his . business when ha
comes to town.
Both the President and his secretary
have planned to make their brief holiday
as restful as possible, and to that eml
will transact in Oyster Bay only the most
Immediate public business. Everything
else will be transmitted to Washington
for attention there, either by the regular
White House force or. in cases where
other- action is required, by the various
departments. This is in accordance with
.the practice that has been followed suc
cessfully during previous summers. The
President will not receive delegations, anil
