ONE CENT v-^ -■ tAST EDITION* | tAST EDITION. ? VOi XV.-M>1 44!*7 JEBSEY CITY. WEDNESDAYr.JUNE 15. 1904._ PRICE O.NE ( l-.NT. HELD AS INCENDIARIES Two Italians Arrested On Suspicion of Firing a Thirteenth Street House. POLICEMAN PDT OUT THE FIRE Hallway of House Was Sat urated With Oil and An Empty Can Was Found In the Prisoners’ Room, At three o’clock this morning Acting Patrolman Zalinski heard a cry of “Fire” emanating from the tenement house No. 277 Thirteenth street. He was about half a block away, and ran to the house in question. He saw a man dart out of the,hallway and enter that of No. 249 next door. The wainscotting of the hallway No. 247 was ablaze. Zalins ki stamped out the flames. He found the hallway saturated with kerosene oil. He notified the Seventh street police sta tion. Roundsman Johnson and the re serves responded. They entered the house No. 249. in the hallway of which Policeman Zalinski had seen a man dart when he was responding to the call of fire from*No. 247, and found in one of the rooms two Italians, one of whom was fully dressed and the other partially dressed. The man., fully dressed could give no satisfactory I account of why he was dressed at that t hour, and both men were placed under arrest. They were booked as disorderly persons. Detective Gallagher investigated the case and j found in the room occupied by the two men a can containing but a few drops of oil. He found a lamp with no oil in it, and also found a trail of oil leading from the room to the hallway next door. Both houses are occupied by numerous families, and the hall and stairways are narrow. Had Policeman Zalinski not been so near at the time, it is probable that a number of persons might have been burned to death, as the hall and stairway was so thoroughly saturated that the flames would have quickly mounted the stairway and shut off es cape to all the occupants of the upper floors. The buildings are frame, and had the fire gained any headway it would have found plenty of material to feed upon. When booked, the two men gave their names as Nicholas John, thirty years old, and Andrew Ferrellio, thirty-three years old. Both men denied having anything to do With starting the fire, but they were held in $1,000 each pending further in vestiga tion. The circumstances point strongly ' to the guilt of one or both of them. SEVENTH DEMOCRATS PICNIC The Seventh Ward Democratic Club ■ last night held its annual picnic at Green ville Scheutzen Park.

They came within an ace of shutting them out altogether. McCann was in the bog for tiie visitors, and pitched a splendid game. Only once was he a trifle wild and that was during the fourth inning, when the Sailors took advantage of it and succeed ed in chalking a tally. Hesterfer started in to pitch for the Sailors, but he was wild and when steady he was easily found by the Skeeters, who slugged him hard. He retired after the fifth inning and was succeeded by olfe. The Skeet ers failed to score any runs off Wolfe’s delivery. They had, however, the game practically won at the time of Hesterfer s ..retirement. They began run getting in the second inning when a base on balls was given to Iveister. Carisch singled and Mabiing made a mess of it and both Keister and Carisch scored.
