Fourth Aided by the
Bright Weather.

Outing—Catholics and
the Flag
The Bang and Fizz Was Kept Up
From Midnight to Midnight
—Many Bad Accidents.
The glorious Fourth, tho only Fourth, that
this free aud independent country cares a
snap for, is once more passed and gone. It
was a gala day in every sense of the word.
In this county it was celebrated with much
enthusiasm from midnight Tuesday until all
hours last night. It was a day of pleasure
here, and everyone appeared to be desirous
of helping along the good work, 60 that all
might have a good time.
During the day there were picnics, excur
sions, bail games, bicycle riding and a score
of other out of door amusemonts. The Ger
mans flocked to Scuhetzen Park, Union Hill,
to take part in the great Plattdeuehe fast,
ami while there had a jolly time. The Scot
tish residents patronized Caledonian Park,
and took much interest in the annual games.
During the nay while cannon roared, guns
banged aud .crackers exploded, athletic
games in a db/eit different places in the
county were run off. The most important
of these from a snorting man’s point of view
took place on the grounds of the New Jersey
Athletic Club at Bayonne. The grounds
were visited by thousands who Wfere in
terested iu the cbiitestS of skill and muscle.
'1 be most etitiihsiastle display of patriotism
observed during Hie day was displayed by
the Junior Order ' of American Mechanics.
These young enthusiasts assembled at Ber
gen square at- nine o’clock yesterday, and
raised the flag oi the nation which they
saluted by a Volley from their mus
kets. After brief ceremonies at the
square, the Order departe I and marched to
School No. :il. where the flag was again
saluted. From the school building the Order
marched to American Grove on West
Side avenue and had a picnic.
Every one was made thoroughly happy
for there was boating for those who felt iu
ciined for a sail, and shade for those who
preferred the laud. A pavilion aud a good

their clubhouse at the Atlantic Highlands,
• and the other clubs either visited them or
some other friends.
There was but little driving during the
day by sportsmen, but the travel on the
electric cal's was tremendous. This was par
ticularly true of the Newark and Orange
Line, and the Bayonne cars. In the after
noon it was almost impossible ,to get on a
car, for they were filled before leaving the
depot at the ferrv. by a hot and impatient
I lot of people. 1 ravel was heavy until late
at night.
During the clay the usual casualties took

and none of them being very serious.

Oppression of the Agricultural
Classes the Cause—Strange
Vancouver, B. C., July 5, 1S5*4. —The
: Empress of China, which arrived yesterday,
'bringsthe following foreign advices:—
Korean airuirs occupy the greater part of
the space in all the English speaking papers
brought in by Che steamer Empress of
China, which arrived yesterday. A writer
in the Japan Herald on June —■ says:—
“The cause of the agrarian insurrection in
Korea, has been the frightful oppression of
the peasantry by the official classes. It has
alwavs been "the custom in the country to
farm’out the highest magistracies to the
highest biddors. who are then permitted to
recoup themselves by squeezing the districts
committed to their charge. In ordinary
times this does not work so badly as might
bo exiiected for an official has generally two
or threo years in which to recoup himself,
and is able to spread his extortions over a
considerable period of time, but of late the
necessities of the time, and the establishing
of a costly army and uavy like those of
Japan, have entailed great expense on tho
Central Government, who, os a result, liavo
been obliged to sell their officials at shorter
intervals and at higher prices, and in conse
minnoo ♦ V.sx ..ffissiattf If*1 Art«£T fhflt fchftir t.illlft
was short, have come down with great
wrath upon their subordinate and exact the
utmost farthing.
‘‘The rebellion, therefore, seems to be one
that has the amplest justification, and the
general hope of foreigners is that its final
result may be the establishment of a better
system of government. its leaders are
men of worth and probity, and its methods
of procedure worthy of all commendation.
The Chief General is a man of eighty-nine
years of age. and a skilful bowman. His
Second in command is a lad of fourteen,
whose precocious sagacity and bravery have
woa for him the devotion of his fellows, who
reverence him as if he were a God. The
third in command is a skilful swordsman, a
Japanese, who has earned a reputation for
the havoc his blade commits in the ranks of
the foe. These three seem to have established
a very fair dicipline amongst them.
“They come as the friends of a down
trodden people, respecting the property of
those amongst whom they come, anc this is
continually inereashig the number of their
adherents, and gaining the secret sympathy
of those In districts still in the hands of the
Government. Badly armed and provisioned
at first, they have now abundance of arms
and provisions, since one of the princi
pal military stations of the kingdom
fell into their hands. * The move
ment has so far mef with unbroken
success, and the insurrection soldiers now al
most stand at the Capital Sooul. Under
these circumstances the Korean Minister ap
plied to China for aid against the rebels, an
application which was at once granted. For
some years it has been the Chinese practice
to keep soldiers in plain clothes in
Korea, who recently followed various
trades, but were in reality a reserve force
ready for action at short notice. With the
aid of these and of other forces dispatched
subsequently there is little doubt that the
Government of Korea would shortly have
been able to remain in power, and
then hopes of a reformation would
have been indefinitely postponed, but
China was not the only ^ ac
tor on the scene, for, unbidden by Korea,
and much to the displeasure of China, the
Japanese Government resolved to interfere,
and under the pretext of looking after its
national interests, has dispatched a consid
pmhlft force to the feninsular. This
torce is much greater than is re
quired for purposes of protection^ for
the five thousand Japanese in Korea
do not need a force of teu thousand troops
and several iron clads to protect their in
terests. It is evident from the number of
troops sent and from the strict secrecy which
has been employed by the Japanese Gov
ernment and the silence imposed upon the
native press, that something more is in
tended than the mere protection of her sub
jects. ”
Speaking on the Korean subject, the Kobe
Herald says official squeezing has become so
merciless in Korea that productive farms
are everywhere deserted, and the oppressed
farmers either emigrate to China or Russia
or join the bauds of robbers that obstruct
what little traffic there is'in the country.
'1 ho so-called rebels would undoubtedly suc
ceed if let alone, but China, the external foe
to the welfare of Korea. China who has
forced tribute from Korea since
two thousand, B. C., will do all
she can to help put down the
insurrection. The rising, we may predict,
will soon come to an end and serve only to
add another chapter of torture, death, im
prisonment, confiscation and banishment to
the ignominous annals of dark destined
A Shanghai paper says:—“There is an
agreement between China and Japan that
neither power shall send troops into Korea
without the consent of the other, and it is
therefore hoped these troops are sent by
mutual consont. It seems improbable, how
ever, that the two powers, so jealous of each
other, can avoid a conflict under the cir
It is generally reported that a Russian
force has been despatched into Korea. The
number of soldiers in the vicinity of Vladi
vostoek is about 1,000, and Russia has
twelve war vessels on that station, besides
six steamers of the volunteer fleet. It is
probable that some of these men of war have
been despatched to Korea.

There was to have been a meeting of the
Street and Water Board this morning, but
owing to Mr. Kellers’ absence it was post
poned until Monday. It was arranged to
bounce about twenty clerks and laborers,
but action was deferred.
Commissioner Hooker reported that he
was supervising an experiment with soft coal
at Belleville. Engineer Miller, who for ten
years was an engineer on a steamship, does
not belief it will not bo a success. He
maintains that there is no coal equal to pea
for steam creating purposes. The experi
ment being made by Mr. Hooker is w ith a
load of soft coal given to the city free of
charge. The company has an experienced
man at the station doing all he can to show
that it is the best coal for the city to pur
chase. The pea coal is offered at such a low
> figure, however, that the Commissioners
favor its use. ___

Jame. Meeliau Accused of Setting
Fire to Hi. Store.
James Meehan, thirty-eight years old, of
No. 152 Manhattan avenue, was arrested
last night on suspicion of arson as he was
leaving his store at No. 458 Central avenue.
Patrolman Hagen saw a blaze m the store,
and running across the street caught Meehan
1_-41 ...4 u;.*.
to open it, and going in extinguished the
fire just as it was spreading to the counter.
Hagen detected a strong odor of kerosene
oil. and on examination discovered a broken
tea box saturated with it.
As no oil is ever used in the store the
officer suspected the fire was of incendiary
origin and placed Meehan under ariest.
His examination was postponed until to
Meehan stated that he bought the oil to
clean a pair of scales: but there were no
signs of the scales ije had reference to hav
ing been touched in the, way of cleaning.
The Crew of a Shipwrecked Schooner
Picked Up.
Gloucester, Mass., July^ 5, 1894.—The
schooner Clara R. Littlefield, -which was re
ported to have lost her entire crew on
Georges Saturday, leaving the captain and
cook on board, has arrived from Georges,
having picked up three of her crew the
morning after they were lost.
Eight of the crew were carried to Block
Island, having been picked up by the barque
Nathan Cleaves of Portland, leaving only
one man. Joseph Grace Souza, missing.
Though the men were spared the rigors of a
winter storm, several of the crew tell a
story of a wearisome night, and thou h the
neat asaore was uiuiyst Iiuvcmauip, liiujuc?h
were obliged to use every exertion to keep
from being benumbed by the cold.
The men left the vessel about ten o'clock
Saturday forenoon. and after the last man
had been dropped the vessel was started for
first man, as is customary, but finding one
of the dories adrift, she was brought about
to give its oecupaut seme directions. This
resulted in the captain's losing them on ac
I count of a sudden, thick fog.
The men remained at their trawls during
the day, and as the weather grew cold three
of them anchored their dories close together,
keeping themselves from freezing by rowing
to and from their anchorage. Eight others
started in search of a vessel, and after
rowiug most of the night were
picked up by the Cleaves. The cap
tain and cook cruised around the
locality until dark, frequently souuding the
horn in the hope of attracting the missing
men, and at night came to anchor, resum
ing the search at daylight and sighting the
three dories during a lift of the fog shortly
before noon. Part of the niou were .sup
plied with water in their dories, but, the
others suffered intensely from tbiret.
The crew think that the missing man was
probably picked up by a coaster bound to a
Nova Scotian, or a Southern port, and will
soon be heard from. He has a wife and five
children in Gloucester.
Waltham, Mass., July 8, 1894.—Hood
