WILL ESTABLISH COLONY
OF NEW YORK HEBREWS
NEW YORK, May 22.— Rev. Dr. L.
Zinsler, president of the Free Loan As
sociation of Manhattan and of the
Utopia Land Company, who bought for
$200,000 a tract of 170 acres between
Flushing and Jamaica, has planned th*?
establishment at that point of a large
colony of east side Jews. There are
2400 building lots in the purchase.. It is
the idea of Dr. Zinsler to solve the so
called easf side problem by giving the
working people of that congested
neighborhood an opportunity of buy
ing lots at a low price, say an average
of $200 each, and help will be given
them to put up moderate priced cot
tages.
. The Free Loan Association has loaned
east side Jews $100,000 at low rates of
interest.

' The increased demand for Mexican

Special Dispatch to The Call
Running into the door of a tene
ment house, Gotshall was suddenly
halted by shouts from the chauffeur.
He turned to see a half-dozen men
and boys endeavoring to climb Into
the automobile and reach the side of
his wife. The crowd about the auto
mobile had evidently caught sight of
the jewels worn by. Mrs. Gotshall and
tried to reach- them. Shouts from
Gotshall as he came running- toward
the machine frightened them away,
but a few of the older ones remained
to bar his progress. He pushed them
aside, and, jumping Into the automo
bile, ordered the chauffeur to make
rapid speed. The automobile was
pursued by the hoodlums until it out
ran them.
NEW YORK, May 22. — Struck by a
rock thrown by a member of an
east side band, who attacked her and
her husband as they rode in an auto
mobile in One Hundred and Sixth
street to-day, Mrs. William C. Gots
hall, wife of the president of the New
York and Port Chester Railroad Com
pany, was so seriously injured that it
Is feared she will not recover. She
was delirious and suffering from con
cussion of the brain this evening.
Gotshall and his wife, with a chauf
feur, started from their home early
to-day for the Oakland Club, Bay
tside, L. I. The start for home was
made in the afternoon. Choosing a
route by way of the Ninety-second
street ferry, Mr. and Mrs. Gotshall
reached Manhattan at 4; 30 o'clock.
Gotshall noticed that the streets of
the east side were crowded with men
and boys, and instructed the chauf
feur to operate the machine slowly to
avoid accidents.
, Notwithstanding the care taken,
there were sullen mutterlngs from the
crowd when the automobile neared
the middle of the block between First
and Second avenues. A shower of
sticks and stones was aimed at the
occupants df the machine. A boy
hurled a large stone, which struck
Mrs. Gotshall with great force. She
uttered a faint cry and fell to the
bottom of the car.

Dr. -Bucklin holds that it takes six
years to tell- whether the cure is com
plete or not.
Dr. Bucklin has undertaken a
paper to be read before the County
Medical Society next fall, to give pro
fessors the benefit of his researches.
He does not claim absolutely that he
has discovered a "cure." He does
profess that his operation has bene
fited nineteen cases of advanced
tuberculosis.
One operated upon In 1902 had had
twenty-five hemorrhages and seemed
to be near death's door. After the
operation, -which "raised hi3 altitude
5.4 miles." his bronchitis ceased In a
Week, and in five months he had
gained twenty-two pounds.
-\EW YORK, May 22. — Dr. Charles
Aubrey Bucklin of this city has a
new cure for consumption. His tuber
culosis patients stay in New York,
yet they breathe the atmosphere of
the Rocky Mountain plateaus and
gain weight.
Dr. Bucklin claims that all that is
necessary is to have the prominent
lower turbinated bones removed.
They are close to the outer surface
of each of the nostrils. The turbinated
bone Is about one and a half inches
long and may be as thin as a lead
pencil. Taking out the bone Increases
the faculty of breathing.
The bones are removed with a saw.
The operation is nearly painless and
the wound heals quickly. The con
sumptive begins to take on weight
almost immediately.
Dr. Bucklin explains the theory of
this operation by means of a machine
called the respirometer, which meas
ures the relative change In altitude ef
fected by the operation. He cites the
oases of several patients cured, or. as
he says, "apparently on the road to a
complete cure," through this simple
operation.
Special Dispatch to The CalL
telegraphy on this coast has !
proved to be a complete success as was i
"cemor.srrated by the transmission of j
messages between the station on the j
top at Yerba Buer.a Island and the i
steamer Solace when the vessel was \
Ksventy^-dx miles cut at sea. The
r.avy transport Solace sailed from port
Saturday morning en route to the Ori
t Dtl She -w as fully equipped with the
system. From the moment
j-he leit the heads she commenced send
ing telegraphs to the island. The com
. mnnlotiOB b«twe«o the two points was
absolutely perfect. At 8 o'clock in the
evening the tk-iace sent the following I
•jjcstjon to the island: "Will ,. .you i
kindly give us the result of the base- j
ball score of the game played to-day
on the lilar.d between the navy ap
prentices and the commercial nine-"
The lolloping answer was immediately
j sent back and was understood and ac
knowledged by the Solace: "The com
mercial ream won by a. score. of 6 to 4."
• At 9 o'clock Commander Bull of the
Solace sent the following communica
tion to Admiral William H. Whiting.
' corrmandant at the island: "We are
now seventy-six miles from the Golden
Gate. We have communicated suc
cetafuUy with Farallone Islands. We
are using full power and can hardly
hear you. Good-by."
ADMIRAL WHITING SATISFIED.
Admiral' Whiting, who had charge of
the 'construction of the station at Yerba
liuena, is greatly pleased at the suc
cess of the new invention. It has taken
sonie time to construct the station, but j
it tiiig been in good working order for i
tHe last two weeks. Mare Island has I
been • very frequently communicated !
"-with. Since it commenced operations •
ft has never been closed night or day. '
ar.d an operator is always there ready I
lo receive communications either from
* points about the bay or from the deep- i
sta-guing vessels. Admiral Whiting, !
in .speaking of the result cr the experi- i
nrat, said:
Tt # oan be readily understood that I j
am greatly pleased at the magnificent j
-. results of this trial. It has exceeded
anything that has heretofore taken j
place tjn the Pacific Coast. The com- j
munication was distinct, and the regis- j
tratior.s were absolutely perfect- There |
* v.an not the slightest trouoie in under- j
•fcta-njiing the communications. The ma- j
<)iine we are using is the Slaby-Arco.
•With thts instrument, which has been
greatly improved since the Navy De- j
paftment took hold of it, we can send i
rijspatches to and communicate with i
any system of instruments used in j
-wireless telegraphy. This is where we I
have the advantage over the Marconi j
machine.' The greatest distance that
' baa yet been observed in this country
en the Atlantic Coast is 112 miles. The
me'ssage was sent out from Navesink
no some vessel out at sea- The Xan
tucket lightship has been able to com
municate with a vessel at sea at a dis
tance o-f 100 miles. If we could have a
station^ somewhere at Point Bonita,
Vith the instruments we are now using,
»e would not have the slightest diffi
culty in communicating with a vessel
Stf miles off this coast. As it stands
row the tall buildings of San Francisco
•or steel structure naturally interfere
¦rttfr the transmission, but notwith
t landing this the work of Saturday
has proved an unqualified success."
: 'The United States cruiser Boston is
t-hortly due from Panama, and we nat
urally are waiting with much expec
tancy to see the results of communica
tion, with her. as she is fitted with a
• wireless machine. In the experiments !
in this line of communications
. throughout the world the United States
Is* at present somewhat ahead. We
are. however, working in unison with
• different European countries for the
benefit and improvement of this mar
velous invention. On Saturday night
<1ur machine here used 80 amperes and
2<fj.<m volts."
The Solace is in charge of Com- I
ma'nder Bull and Lieutenant George C. ,
Sweet has control of the wireless tel
egraph communicator on board. The
Solace is taking telegraphy masts to
Honolulu. Guam and Olangapo. and
Lieutenant Sweet intends io establish
stations at these different places.
