Delay in Buying Gamewell Bells Costs $837 More Than He Saves. _ SHORTSIGHTED POLICY Fire Commissioners in a Pickle Over Heeding the Faganite’s Advice. Fire Commissioner Frank Angel and his “economy” in the purchase of exten sion or false alarm disecting bells has proved to be no economy. The former Board of Fire Commission ers gave an order to the Gamewell Fire Alarm Bell Company for 130 false alarm detecting bells at $3.75 per bell. The Gamewell Company sent the bells to Fire Headquarters in Bay street. They reached the place shortly before the Fire Board, with Commissioner Frank Angel as a member, was organized. The bill was held up by the new Com missioner. “Don’t use any of those bells,” said Angel, “they cost too much. Why, I can purchase a false alarm bell as good as the Gamewell bell much cheaper—at $1.35 each.” FALSE ECONOMY. Commissioners Hennessey and Niblett thought it advisable to wait, if as good and a cheaper bell could be purchased. They waited, and now they are sorry they did. Tliy Gamewell bells was pur chased in the end through Commission ers Hennessey and Niblett at $2.50 each, or $1.15 more than what Commissioner Angel said he could buy a bell for, and $1.25 each less than the price originally asked. The saving to Jersey City on the whole purchase was $162.50. Since the original bill of the Gamewell Company was held up thirty-six false alarms called out the department. In answering every alarm for fire it cost Jer sey City $25. In answering these thirty-six alarms $S00 was spent and acocrding to a re port of Assistant Chief Lovell three axles of apparatus were broken, and the breaking of one axle resulted in severe injuries to Fireman William E. Murray, who was thrown from his apparatus. The repairs to the apparatus and the cost of attending to Murray’s injuries brings the whole expense up to $1,000 or more. UUSS UN UJflUAI. The difference between the price paid fgor the bells and the cost to the city in insweriug false alarms is $837.50. “This expenditure,” said a well known .axpayer today, “was unnecessary. Ky trying to economize in Commissioner An gel's way it has cost the city extra mon ey. If these faise alarm bells were put into use as soon as purchased at $3.75 each the saving would have been much to the city, and Fireman Murray would not have been injured. “The false alarm bills mean doing away with the malicious false alarm Bend. The bell is so arranged that as soon as the door of the alarm box is opened a gong sounds and attracts at tention. The person sending in the alarm is imediately detected. “My impression is that Commissioner Angel has proved rather expensive to Jersey City with his ideas of economy.” -♦ PIPE LINE SCRAP Water Company’s Offer to the County Likely to Be Accepted. Ex-Senator William D. Edwards and Counsellor William H. Corbin appeared before the Freeholders Friday to ex plain why the Jersey City Water Com pany was laying water mains along the County road without obtaining the sanc tion of the Board. They held a two hours' conference behind closed doors. The result was that the water com pany offered to pay the county $1,500 for the privilege of laying mains along the county road and also to defray the cost of widening the road 14 feet through out its entire length at a cost of $4,000. Although the Freeholders would not 'ay whether or not they would accept e proposition it is generally believed that they will. They will announce their decision Monday. —.-* WADING TO ERIE FERRY Rain Floods the Pavonia Avenue Entrance. The rain yesterday caused an unusual y large flood at the entrance to the Erie ferry, foot of Pavonia avenue. The wa ter flowed over the sidewalk into the fer rylionse and wet tiie promenade along the restaurant. In the middle of the avenue the water was so deep in places that it reached above the knees of horses. People often had to wade in order to reach the ferry entrance. Children were pushing rafts about. SALVATION ARMY CELEBRATES The Salvation Army celebrated last evening at the ' headquarters. No. 140 Montgomery street. The -services were led by Brigadier Chandler and Adjutant Brooks of New York, assisted by nine teen boys. The singing by these young men was very good and the addresses were interesting.

P. O. E., held its annual outing to Witzel’s Point View Grove, College Point. L. I., yester day. Five hundred odd members and friends of the order from different parts of the county braved the rain to eat clams, talk politics and enjoy other at tractions. There was a big contingent of Jersey City folks on the steamer ‘'Favorite,” which left Hoboken at 11 o’clock, prom inent among whom were County Superin tendent Smith, Freeholders James Kelly and George Caparn, Enoch Smith, Sam uel Blakely, Former Police Captain Frederick Farrier, Street and Water Commissioner Janies Nolan, Charles Smith, Former Freeholders Clements and Riordain, Deputy Warden John Stewart, John F. McNulty and John Moody.

Ruth, pastor of St. Paul’s M. E. Church on Third street, preached an interesting sermon last evening on “Amusements.” It was one of a ■ series of sermons entitled “Wdrldly Mindedness.” He began by talking of the Biblp and some of its principles. All young men, he said, should rejoice in their youth. “To deny ourselves all pleasure is to unfit our serves for the performance of duty.” Tastor Ruth illustrated the life of Christ, telling how he sacrificed things for the pleasures of others. “Men,” he said, “should avoid all amusements that have a tendency to in fluence the mind in the principles of gam bling. He spoke about dancing, the theatre and games of chance as amuse ments. "Dancing is an act purely harm less in itself,” said the speaker. “There is no more harm keeping time to music with feet than with your fingers running over the keys of a piano. “The theatre is all right,” said Pastor Ruth, “when such plays as ‘The Old Homestead’ and ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’ are witnessed.” All games of chance, he said, are im moral. Card playing he attacked in par ticular and said itSshould not be indulged in by Christian people. Chess, croquet, checkers, lawn tennis and ping pong are good amusements, according to Pastor Ruth. CLERGYMEN IN RETREAT High Church Episcopalians Going to Kingston With the Catholic Club of New York. The Rev. Augustine Elmendorf, of the Holy Cross Church, is the only Epis copal clergyman of this city who will go into retreat today in the Church of the Holy Cross, Kingston, New oYrk, w*ith the clergymen who are members of the Catholic Club of New York. The Kev. Percival C. Pyle and the Rev. C. P. Burnett, of New York, both formerly of this city, will go into retreat also. This Tetreat will begin today, and will last until Friday night. The members of the New York Cath olic Club are clergymen in New York and adjacent cities. HORSESHOE TALK —-- > Murphy for Alderman and Lawyer Kelly for Assem - blyman, Who will be the Aldermanic candidate on the Democratic ticket from the Sec ond Ward seems to be the question at is sue just now in the Horseshoe. George Dittmar, the pi'esent Alderman, is not anxious for a ronomiuation, and the race is left open. Few names have been mentioned in connection with the nomination. Among them are Edward Murphy, James D. McKiernan and Edward Shoedy. This is amazing, because in other years there were a dozen or more candidates. Murphy, it is said, will be the candi date. McKiernan and Sheedy do not ap pear to have much following. Murphy, if nominated, will be the youngest Alder manic candidate ever placed on the Democratic ticket. He is popular, and has a large circle of friends. He lives with his mother at Erie and Thirteenth streets, aud is a brother of Rev. Father Murphy, attached to St. Bridget's Parish. BOOM STARTED. A boom for Murphy was started on the Davis outing and it has developed won derfully. When first spoken to about the matter Murphy said he thought someone else was more entitled to it. When liis friends heard that he was asked to con sider the nomination they last little time in “sending him along,” and they have succeeded wonderfully. He has th^ Sec ond Ward Democratic Club and the Dennis McLaughlin Association with him. Assemblyman P. H. Connolly has lit tle to say about a possible renomination. Rumor has it that he has lost heart be cause of Kelly talk. OUT FOR KELLY. Lawyer James Donelap, who has been an aspirant for the nomination, to, has fallen into line, and will work for Kelly. It is understood he said to a committee man of the ward: “I'm out for Lawyer Wiliam D. Kelly for the Assembly nomi nation and want to see him get it.” John Sullivan, prominent in St. Mich ael's Club, may be the candidate for jus tice of the peace on the Democratic tick et from the Second ward. -4 Father Smith Generously Gives to St. John’s the $1,000 Presented to Him. The Rev. P. M. Smith of St. John's R. C. Church, Boulevard, told his people yesterday at all the masses about his trip to Europe. He told about all the places he visited except Ireland. He intends to save that for next Sunday when he will give the whole sermon to it. When Father Smith was in Rome he was authorised by the Pope to give his cougregation the Papal blessing, which he will do next Sunday. Of all the wonderful and beautiful things that Father Smith saw while on his trip the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes impressed him most. While there \'.f vowed solemnly that as soon as he raised enough money he would Lave a duplicate of the shrine placed in his church. Now ha is going to give for it the $1,000 his parishioners had presented to him. Probably the whole sriue will be imported. In the left hand side of the church near ino front are three niches,. The middle one is the baptistry and the other two tire vacant. This shrine will be plaeedViii the one nearest the altar. Whe n more .noney is raised a companion shrine to Si. Joseph will be placed in the other niche. When the shrine is built water for it will be imported from Our Lady of Lourdes. Then the sick may try the effect of the water. The fact that impresses Failier Smith’s parishioners is the generosity which he displays in using for this pur pose the money given him for himself. They' are much surprised and pleased. St. John’s is a very beautiful church and anything that is added will of course make it more so. The members are de light d with this new idea of the Shrine. STATIONARY FIREMEN. Organizing a Union and Pre paring to Join the Interna tional Brotherhood. * The first step toward the organization of the stationary firemen employed in this county took place yesterday when Organizer Cornelius Ford, assisted by Delegates Koon. Knox and Quinn of the Central Labor Union, formed a tempor ary union of stationary firemen in Jen sen's Hall, Hoboken. Fourteen charter members were elected. They were:— Fred. Jfertzner, president; Frank Was serman, vice president; H. Williams, re cording secretary; W. Williams, financial secretary; Otto Deumer, treasurer. A meeting will be held tonight in Ru rode’s Hall, Third and Bloomflteld streets, Hoboken, when an application will be made for affiliation with the Interna tional Brotherhood of Stationary Fire men. The latter body will then issue a charter. It is expected that the new union will have A large membership in a very short time. KILLED BY 1 LIVE WIRE Electric Light Conduit Blown Against Webach’s Leg He Writhes and Falls Dead. LOOSENED BY THE WIND Friends in the North Hudson Club House Take the Body From the Roof—Fatal Effort to Avert Fire. William Wiebaeh, twenty-one years old, a barkeeper in tbe employ of the North Hudson Club, West Hoboken, was shocked and instantly killed yesterday afternoon by an electric light wire on the roof of the building. He had crawled to the roof to tie up the wire when it came in contact with his right leg. Gus tav Moos and William Sheridan, mem bers of the club, saw Wiebaeh fall. They think he was killed so quickly that he suffered no pain. During the storm yesterday the wire broke from its fastenings and swayed to and fro in the wind. The wire was ni sulated, it is said, but at one point the insulation was worn away. As a con sequence every time the wire came in contact with the tin roof it sent forth a shower of sparks. This was seen by a family living across the way. Fearing it might set fire to the club house, a member of the family ran and notified W lebacli. GOES TO THE ROOF. Wiebaeh ■went to the roof to fasten the wire till a lineman could be called. He was followed by Maas and Sheridan, who cautioned him to be careful. He replied that the wire was insulated and he did not think there was much danger. He had kone only a few steps when the wire swept across the roof and touched his right leg just above the ankle. He dropped as if shot. For an instant lie writhed and twisted and then lay still. BODY TAKEN DOWN. Maas and Sheridan soon regained their nerve, dragged him into the clubhouse and called a physician. Dr. Drasel yro nounced the unfortunate young man dead. Undertaker Schlemm took charge of the body and notified County hysician Converse. The club numbers among its members many of the leading politicians, ofice holders and business men of North Hud son. It occupies the old Givernand man sion and is illuminated by electricity supplied by the United Electric Com pauy. _ STOPS THE RUNAWAYS, Fireman Una Throws the Horses and Saves the Children Playing in the Street, A team of horses attached to a coach standing in front of Hexamer’s Ridnig Academy in Hoboken broke away yester day morning and started to run down Hudson street. Near Second street one of the horses swerved and fell. The other horse continued in its course and began dragging its mate, which finally regained its feet. A crowd of children were playing a short distance down the block. Seeing their peril, Seeing their peril, Chief Ap plegate and Fireman Una ran from Fire Headquarters and tried to head them off. Una reached them first and caught one horse by the bridle. He was dragged several yards, but finally succeeded in grabbing the animal by the forelock and throat and pushing its nose against the struggling one on the other side of the pole. Horses and man went to the pave ment. Una escaped unhurt. “The trick of throwing a team is easy when you know how,” he said. “I’ve often done it before.” f tirl'ng Castle. Stirling was a Stewart capital before Edinburgh, and within its walls are in habited dwellings which own a suffi ciently high antiquity. To mention no more, the quarters of the commanding officer date from the tiem of James II. (1437-1460) at least. Part, it is true, was gutted by fire some thirty or forty years ago.
