FOUR INSTarlTLY KILLED Five Men Seriously Injured —Vessel Reduced to Fragments. RAIN OF IRON AND WOOD Terrific Force of the Explosion Spreads the D9bris Hun dreds of Feet Around. A tugboat belonging to the firm of jedtijj ‘3 ■*api0ll'3aj3 tpiR-w of Hoboken, is senior partner, blew up this morning off Tompkinsville, S. I., and four of her crew were instantly killed. Five others were seriously iujured and the boat itself was blown to pieces. "Jacob Kuper” was the mrme of the tug. It was towing a cotton lighter down the bay when the accident happened. It was just off Tompkinsville at eight o'clock this morning, when the boilers burst. The engineer, William Bone, of Hoboken, was lifted from the boiler pit, hurled through the air, landing on the lighter of cotton in the wake of the tug. He is fatally injured. The noise of the tremendous explosion attracted the at tention of the Valiant, another tng. and her captain, F. N. Roberts, steamed at once to rescue the wounded sailors of the Jacob Kuper who were flounder ing in the water. The mate of the tug, who was in command, and three sailors, went to the bottom with the wreck. The waters for many yards around was strewn with the debris and frag ments of spars and planking were thrown a hundred feet away. Not a ves tige of the tug is left. The Staten Island ferryboat Castle ton passed within a hundred yards of the tug when the latter's boilers let go with such terrific force. EXPLOSION DESCRIBED. Captain Frank Braisted of the ferry boat picked up a wounded sailor. In de scribing the explosion the captain said:— “There was a puff of smoke, a great cloud of steam and then a terrific ex plosion. The boat was blown higij iu the air, changed into a mass of timbers and wliat remained instantly sank.” The cotton lighter was not injured and was towed ashore by the Valiant. The Jacob Kuper was one of the best known of the tugboats which plied about New York waters. She was formerly the revenue cutter Cheyenne and was at one time known as the Bristol. She measured 9(1.8 feet long, 23.2 feet bead and her tonnage was 144. She was built in 188.") at Charleston, S. C. Her owners were E. I).

The Mount Tabor camp meeting this year is even more successful in point of numbers and the amount of interest tukeu in meetings than in former years. A Jersey City gentleman who lias just returned from there says the church is crowded at every meeting. The speeches are bright and intersting and tli confer ence committee. Mr. A. R. Richardson, Mr. C. S. Woodruff and Mr. V. H. Morgan, and also Mr. J. H. Cox. the su perintendent. are working hard to put the former camp meetings entirely in the shade. -* DO YOU EAT HAY? If So You Will Find it Almost as Dear as Beef. Livery stable keepers and owners of horses are complaining about the high price they are asked to pay for hay. Ohl hay at the different feed markets in this city is selling for $1.10 a hundred pounds. Up to a few days ago it was selling at 75 cents a hundred pounds. The feed men say the price may go up higher. The price of white oats has dropped from $1.90 to $1.75 a bag. THE SURPRISE CURE. Fireman Speicher Ha* a Story of a Lame Back Mended. Malon Speicher, a fireman attached to headquarters on Bay street, relates a similar cure for a weak back to that which cured Fireman Cornelius Wester velt of his lame leg. Westervelt ran to get out of danger at the National Storage Docks fire last Sat urday. After the run he found his leg cured. Speicher says he fell from a trol ley car two years ago and sprained his back. l He was unable to lift anything heavy until two months ago. He ran to catch a trolley car and fell. He thought it was all up with him. He found thought that he had no trouble in bending his back. Now he can 1'ft anything heavy. 'He attributes the fall he bad to the cure for his sprained back. Longed for a Pretty Face. A native of Dublin, but a resident of London, arrived in Philadelphia a few days ago. His last stopping place was St. Petersburg, where he spent several weeks. He says he is delighted to get I here again, as he is longing for the-sight, | of pretty faces, which in St. Petersburg I are as rare as they are plentiful here, j On one occasion, in company with a | friend, lie walked the entire length of the I Xevski Prospekt (four miles), the Cliest j nut street of the Russian capital, and during the stroll saw but two pretty i women. And Russian ladies, he declares, i do not dress nicely. He explained these ; two facts by saying that they were main i ly Tartars, and was somewhat non plussed when innocently asked try his cynical listener:—“Aren’t a'l women tar tars ?”—Philadelphia Telegraph. -« Good Sight.

YOUNG’S OFFER. —:— Will Pave Part of Ninth Streel as Soon as City Does Cer tain Work. President David Young, of the Jersey City, Iloboken and Paterson Street Rail way Company, made a promise to John Casey, ns representative of the Second Ward Improvement Association, about a year ago, that, as soon as the meadow laud on either side of Ninth street, from Brunswick street to the foot of the hill, was filled in and a sewer construct ed through Division street, he would attend to the paving between the car tracks. The Summit nveuue line runs through this street. “Most of the meadow land has been filled in,” said Mr. Casey last night, and the city is about to build the Divi sion street sewer. We hope Mr. Young will remember his promise. Pavement is necessary between the tracks. At pres ent a wagon cannot be driven up the street because the rails ijre raised above grade.” CATHEDRAL HERE? Episcopal Clergymen Ponder ing Where the Building Shall Be Erected. The Episcopal clergymen of Hudson County are interested in a pet project of Bishop Starkey. He has for some time wanted an Episcopal Cathedral for the Newark diocese, and now there are seri ous thoughts of building one. There are differences of opinion about where this cathedral shall be situated. Some of the clergymen think it should be in Newark and some want it in Jersey City, ns it is a more central point in the diocese to Bayonne and also to the northern part of Hudson county, and still Essex county will be within easy reach. The pro-cathedral is at present in East Orange, but many think that it is not a central point in the diocese, as the dio cese tarapidly growing in numbers. -* SUPPORT LANKERING. German-Democratic Verein, of Hoboken Denounce the City Council. The German-Ameriean Demoeratic Verein of Hoboken, held a secret meet ing at Bush’s Hotel, in that city, last night, atiddiseussed at length the strain ed relations existing between Mayor Bunkering and the Common Council. The Mayor’s friends in the verein up held the independent stand which he has taken and denounced the Council for re fusing to work in harmony with him. A resolution embodying these views was adopted. _ GANG OF BOY THIEVES. Police Trying to Find the Looters of Reid’s Store. Detective Weinthal, of Hoboken, this morning succeeded in arresting Michael Ladde, 12 years old, of No. 215 Wash ington street, on suspicion of being one of a gang of boys who broke into and robbed the the stationery store of David Beid. at No. 203 Washington street. The young thieves had provided themselves with tools similar to those used by professional burglars. The tools, which consisted of a hammer, a chisel and a screw driver are now in the pos session of the police. The rear door of the store was forced open and a lnrge quantity of toys and stationery stolen. Some of the property was recovered in houses in the neighbor hood. The police expect to have all the amateur burglars under arrest within forty-eight hours. -* GUESTS AT THE WASHINGTON Among the guests registered at the Hotel Washington are:—Mr. and Mrs. Smith Griffith, Matteftwaa, X.

What is probably one of the most unique]) risons in the world is located at Santa Rosalia, Lower California. It is cut out of the solid rock, the gates being made of thick iron bars. Thep risoners never know how long they will be detained In this terrible place, as they are not allowed to be pres ent at their trial—an interesting custom wliieh practically insures their conviction, unless they are in a position to oil the machinery of justice. Their friends, if they have any, briug them food, as the State does not undertake to Iced them, and they get their water for driukiug and bathing out of a cask set outside the: door. Altogether, the ordinary 'convict prison of America seems like a'hgven of, luxury compared to this rock-hewn peni tentiary x , -TV *' FAGAN’S FOLLY. Jacking Up Assessments Criticized by Congressman Allan L. McDermott. MISFIT ADMINISTRATION. Policy Pursued Will Give the City a Black Eye—Demc- ' cratic Victory Sure. Congressman Allan L. McDermott was in town today after a stay in Wash ington during last week. He had been so busy with government business that he had had little time to keep up with local municipal doings.. When lie was informed this morning that the Fagan Tax Commissioners had increased the assessments on railroad and other property he smiled and re marked that it was a foolisli policy and the city wouldn’t in the end gain by it. To assess locally, railroad property taxed heretofore by the State Tax Board and for which the State gave back one and a half per cent., was iu Mr. Mc Dermott’s opinion only another mistake of the “Misfit Administration.” Take he said, a piece of railroad prop erty, the city couldn’t judge as to 'its value and it would assess it as uu$m proved. What value they got front it would not equal that which would en sue from the State Board. .Tacking up assessments, continued Sir. McDermott, would have the effect of driving away industrial enterprises and eventually meant a black eve for the city. PROGRESS BACKWARD, i “Tlie Misfit Administration,” Mr. Mc Dermott said, was bent on a' course which would land Jersey City in'the same financial box as it was in the year 1884, when it was on the verge of bank ruptcy. Would manufacturers come and locate here when a foolish administra tion was doing everything it could to put snags in their way? Where was the advancement of Jersey City as an in dustrial centre in the face of such con ditions? Taxpayers were beginning to discover that their interests were being seriously imperilled and all because of the lack of prudence, foresight and judg ment on the part of the Mayor and his “Misfit Administration.” DEMOCRATIC VICTORY SURE. About local politics Mr. McDermott did not care to talk except to say that the Democratic party would surely be victorious. Throughout the country, he said, there were unmistakable signs that the Democrats would win. The people of the United States, he said, were being aroused at the conduct of the Repub lican administration and would by their votes record their disapproval of the “strenuous” policy of Roosevelt. -♦ FOUGHT HER HUSBAND. Drunken Woman Gets 'a Lec ture and a Five Dollar Fine. Mrs. Margaret Smith was arrested as a disorderly character about half-past twelve last night by Roundsman Sand ers. She was having an argument with her husband at the coiner of Bright and Grove streets and when told to stop, refused. She appeared to be intoxicated and lay down in the street. Judge Hoos fined her $5 this morning and mentioned the fact that she had been drunk before. Her husband, who was present, was very much surprised to hear it and told her so. She lives at No. JO Bright street and had her husband arested some time ago for abandonment. -A WANT BARNES AND RAMSEY. Inspector Archibald has received a letter from a woman in Detroit asking him to try and locate a Mr. Barnes and Mr. Iiunisey. A Mrs. Bumsey, formerly of this city, had died in Detroit, and was a sister of a Mr. Barnes and mother of Mr. Ram sey. Her husband was at one time a civil engineer. The letter gives no more definite information. -♦ ST. LUCY’S LAWN PARTY. A lawn party under the auspices of the young ladies of St. Lucy’s It. C.

THE PATCHING OF NO. 21 Board of Finance Now Ready to Appropriate $2,500 for the Horseshoe School. ARCHITECT ROWLAND’S REPORT Backward Condition of Vaca tion Work on the Build «* tog®—Some Won’t Be Ready on Time. The question of proriding the where withal to make the necessary repairs to Public School Xo. 21 in Twelfth street will be discussed at the meeting of the Board of Finance this afternoon. The Board of Education asked for $1,500 for the work, but the Finance Commissioners, in their pruning process, allowed the Board only $500. Xaturally the Directors kicked and the matter was referred to the Mayor and Architect John Rowland to see exactly what was needed to put the building in first class all n no It is said that, as a result of their in vestigation, they have concluded that $2,500 will be necessary for the work. Unless somebody gets a move on quick ly there will not be sufficient time to ad vertise for bids and award a contract in order to have the work completed by the opening of the full term. The residents of the Horseshoe have been roundly denouncing the delays in providing for the proper repairs to No. 21 School and the proposed appropriation of $2,500, or $1,500 more that the Board of Education asked for, is intended as an administration “square” to make the parents of No. 24's pi/)ils less wrathful. The Board of Education will meet to morrow afternoon to receive bids for al terations to Public School No. 10. An appropriation of $5,500 has been made to cover the cost of the work. The contractor will be obliged to hustle to finish the work before the summer vacation is over. Some say the reason the Board is so ready to give so much is that, the Bud get being out of the way. they won't have to make good the amount for eighteen months. VIADUCT NEEDS REPAIRS Horseshoe Committee to Com plain to the Street and Water Board. According to an investigation made by a committee of ten people of the Horse shoe district, John Lencraft, acting as chairman, the Thirteenth Street viaduct is badly*in need of repairs. Said Mr. Leacraft last night:—“The brick driveway of the viaduct is, torn up until it is dangerous to drive either up or down at night. The sidewalk on either side of the driveway is in bad shape, too. “The mason work that protects the base of the pillars upholding the big structure, is crumbling away. The iron work is rusting and needs paint to pro tect it from wear and tear. Something must be done shortly. We don’t want any serious accidents.” The committee proposes to report their findings to the Street and Water Board. TISH’A B’AB. Yesterday, the ninth day of the Fifth Month, or Tish'a b’Ab in the Jewish cal endar, was a day of deep mourning among the orthodox Jews. The day is the anniversary of three direful events, the destruction of the first and second temples in .Jerusalem, and in later years the expulsion of Jews from Spain (14921. Special services were held in the synagogues here and throughout the whole world. 1 r i -pter HEADS. ^ BUSINESS CARDS. HEADS. ENVELOPES. CIRCULARS. BROWN’S DOCK STRIKE. Fifty Men Out-Claim a Nine Hour Saturday Is Against Their Agreement. The strike of carpenters and caulkers at Brown’s Dry Dock, foot of Morgan street, which has been in progress for the past three weeks, has not yet been set tled, and the men on strike claim they will not give in to the firm. The strike was made by the men against the firm because it tried to make them work nine hours on Saturdays. The men claim that they work nine hours a day. and, according to a rule made by the firm three years ago. they were only to work eight hours on a Sat urday. About three weeks ago the men were notified that hereafter they would be compelled to work nine hours on a Sat urday. and they then went on a strike. Work at the yards has been at a standstill ever since and the men say they will hold out until the company lives up to its old rule. There are about fifty men on strike. -* SITS UP TO SHOOT. Jersey Village Organizes as a General Vigilance Com mittee. (Special to “The Jersey City News.”! ALLENJ9ALE, Aug. 13, 1902.—A dozen citizens of Allendale, composing a vigilance committee, began to do patrol duty last night, and every night hereafter the force will be replaced by a fresh de tail. The village is in a state of terror as the result of almost numberless burglar ies which have been committed here aud the citizens are determined to prevent a continuance of the raids. More than one hundred robberies have occurred in Allendale in two years. Thieves have taken everything from diamond rings to chickens. Monday night a wagon drove up to the home of Samuel Pritchard, a wealthy New York shoe merchant, and alighted. Mr. Pritchard’s house had been visited by burglars the night before, and Mr. Pritchard at that time armed himself for future occasions. As the three aprpoached the door he opened fire from a window. At the same time neighbors joined in the fusilade. The burglars escaped, but at least one of them must have been wounded. FAGAN VERSUS THE MAYOR. His Honor Will Explode His Own Gallery Play Every Month. 'Mayor Fagan’s action in signing Lamp Inspector John Boyd’s salary warrants, after repeatedly vetoing the Street aud Water Board’s resolutions ordering them paid, has caused much comment all over the city. His Honor justifies his action by say ing that it will save Mr. Boyd the trouble of suing the city and will save the city the expense of defending the suit. Mr. Boyd’s suit was discontinued yesterday. The Mayor intends, however, to send in a veto every time one of Boyd's salary claims is passed by the Street aud Water Board. 1 _A__ MEETS “BIG CHIEF.” Police Captain John F. Kelly Greets Wm, S. Devery. * Police Captain John F. Kelly met New York's former Chief of Police, William Stephen Devery, last night. The captain attended the Devery banner raising at the corner of Eighth avenue and Twenty eighth street.

NEW CENTRAL STOCK PUNT Surveyors Said to Be at Work Pear, of Smells Stirs Up Residents and Property Owners. Rumor has it that a hog abattoir I* to be built by the Central Stock Yard Company at the foot of Sixth street, this city. This will be designed to take the place of the company’s abattoir lo cated at Kearny, until the fire a week ago destroyed it. Although the Central Stock people re fuse to cither confirm or deny the story that the new abattoir is to be built with in file city limits, there are some promi nent business men along lower Pavonia avenue who say they have heard of its coming. It is said, too, that the com pany has hud surveyors going over the Jersey City yards, foot of Sixth street, during tin* past few days for the purpose of selecting a suitable site. As yet no application for permission to erect a building or to operate the abattoir has been received at the local health office, or at the office of the build ing inspector. The business men along Pavonia ave nue are alarmed about the rumor. They say they will oppose any attempt to build the abattoir. Among those who will join in the fight are President John D. Carseallen. of the Third National Bank, a member of the hay and feed firm of Carseallen aud Cassidy. Charles Cassidy, Finance Commissioner O. H.

There are odors bad enough about here now without get tiiffc any more or any worse ones. I will oppose any effort to build that abattoir.
