Even before sunrise there were several deaths from heat prostraition and the outlook for the day was most unfavor able. The temperature at 8 o’clock bad reached the high mark of 80 degrees, while yesterday >it was 74 degrees at that time. There was a steady, ominous climb of tjie mercury in the tube and at 9 o’clock the temperature was registered at 84 degrees. Yesterday at that time it was 78 degrees. Au early excess of humidity threaten ed to vastly increase the discomfort of the day and added more than anything else to the danger of prostration. The per cent, of humidity at 8-o’clock was 72, but the indications were that it would decrease rather thau increase as the day wore on, and in this lay the only curmb of comfort. Yesterday, the hottest of the summer, reaching 95 degrees, as against the for mer record of 90, was within 5 degrees of the hottest day in the history of Xew York, when the mercury reached 100, and men. women and children dropped in the streets by scores. Last night, too, with its lowest temperature 85 degrees, was the hottest night of the summer, and this morning the crowds going to work showed the lesson they had learned by their recent tropical experience. The care with which the shady syie of the street was taken, and the fight that was made in the subway to get near tlie opeu front doors of the trains to drink in the musty breezes indicated that the les son taught b-- tlie records of deaths and prostrations was being heeded by the public. Last night held no relief for the worn out thousands who had sweltered through the day in hope of a breath of coolness after sunset. Despite the intense heat of ye.-itci'diay not a single'll east prsostratdon in« this city was reported. *, George Mason, thirty-four years oW, ssof Xo. 101 Vauderveer street .Brooklyn, was prostrated by the heat at War ea and Grand streets at 11:55 this a. in. He dropped like a log on the pavement. President George McCarthy, of the S>. P. C. A., who had been superingtendiiuig the hose bathing of passing horses in fiout of the Society’s headquarters, and s v eral men, lifted him to the shady side of Grand street, while they coo'el the man’s head and wrists with ice water furnished by a woman resident of tlie house in front of which the man; was borne. He was taken to the City Hos pital in a patrol wagon. ^ FREE CONCERTS BEGIN The free open air concerts which began the season last night at Mary Benson and the Lafayette parkss drew great crowds and the music was greatly enjoy ed. Both band's played excellent and ap propriate music. That of John J. Mill rain furnished1 Che music at Mary Ben son pork and George M. Connells at Lafayette park. Vocal solos were ren dered at each concert. The crowd's w.r<» orderly and the police had bat little trou ble in keeping cr ’er. Du: ing the con cert at Mary Benson park a fire alaitn was sent in for a burning p’.ectrie light pole at Fourth and' Monmouth streets. A big portion of the crowd started for ih > scene of the fire. The pole had been set on fire by an electric wire an.l1 the dis play was more like that of a piece of fire works than anything else. The flames subsided in a few moments and before fire apparatus appeared' on the some. -* HORSE RAN AWAY. A horse attached to a milk wagon a-nn away at Ogden avenue and Hobson street yesterday afternoon; and smashed the wagon and the fence in front of Dr. U. Alien’s home. The wagon .was own ed and in charge of William Behrens, of No. tj6 Ferry street. He escaped injury. ..-,0.0 SKEETERS STILL HEAD THE LIST They Played A Queer Game Yesterday With Toronto But Won It. BALTIMORE WAS SHUT OUT Providence Won From Ro chester and Newark From Buffalo—Clubs’ Stand ing. The Skeeters played ,a queer sort of game with the Toronto men yesterday. For five innings they iiopeiessiy outclass ed the Canadians. Then they allowed their opponents to go in and score five runs in the sixth. Thieimau was almost knocked out of the box. Fortunatei^Sie Skeeters woke up and held the Toronto v men prone on their backs while they re paired the damages. The trouble started at the outset of the sixtii. Following an error, Carr instead of bitting was hit. This was followed by a three-bagger from Crystal’s trusty bat. Then a pass was issued and Harley singled. The result of the Toronto men's rally was five ruijs, and put them one ahead of the mosquitoes. The latter, however, made a trio of runs in the following inning and this won the game, with a tally to spare. This was done. too. after two men were out. It looked almost as though the Skeeters were toying with the Canadi ans. Crystal was chased out of the box after the seventh. Merritt hit safely, Halligan singled, Pattee took first on an inshoot into the ribs and Woods cleared the bases with a single. The first run was Scored by the Skeeters In the third inning. Yaudergrift hit safely, McCann fanned, Clement stole second, Bean walked and Clement scored on Keister’s scratch double. In the fourth another tally was added by a base on balls to Pattee, a steal and Yaudergrift’s timely hit. In the sixth the Skeeters added two more tallies on Halligan's sin gle, O’Brien's had throw to second, Woods’s hit and Harley’s muff. Bean, Merritt and Yandergrift did great work in the field and Halligan and Woods wielded the stick for fair. McCann pitched for the Skeeters the first three innings and was then obliged to retire on account of a sore arm. Thieimau gave seven passes on balls and struck two men. Umpire Egan’s decisions did not please the Toronto crowd and they went for him after the game. >He was escorted off the grounds by the police. The score;— TORONTO. R. H. P.O. A. E.

Representatives of twenty-nine eonn cils of the Royal Arcanum in New Jersey, including nearly all the organizations of the order in the counties of Essex. Union, Passaic, Hudson and Bergen, have form ed a permanent organization with the idea of having the new rate schedule adopted by the Supreme Council revised. This action was taken Saturday night at a conference in Masonic Hull, West Nutley, the result of invitations sent out several days ago by Ivempton Council, Nutley. and the replies from these showed the widespread dissatisfaction over the action of the Atlantic City con vention. Protests were received from lodges in New York, Pennsylvania and Connecticut,. although only New Jersey lodges were represented at the meeting. C. J. E, Nuelte. of Avaret Council, Jer sey City, was chairman of the meeting. A resolution was adopted providing for a committee of fifteen, to be named by the chairman. This committee will ctmsti tnfe a permanent organization to fight the effort to put the new schedule into effect. The committee was empowered and instructed to issue a circular calling upon the Supreme Council to reconvene before October 1, the date upon V'itich the new schedule goes into effect. In advocating a return to the old rate schedule it was generally agreed by the dissenters that to strengthen the finances an additional assessment, at the old rates, might he made at stated periods, such as once each quarter. Under this plan, with 300.000 membership, ,$1.‘.!00, 000 would he raised the first year, with increasing amounts as tile membership increases in future years. THIEVES’ HARVEST.

Henry, p os peetive Democratic Mayoralty candi late, agree with The News that he shoui !■ tell the people how he stands on the subject of Equal Taxation and the other ques tions that arc likely to come up for dis cussion in the campaign, A meeting should be held for the purpose of g;vi; g Mr. Henry this opportunity. That Mr. Henry's views on,these subjects are in accord with the views of Mr. Black and' others who have champiohed' ihe came of the people is generally believed, but if he were to come out now and tell the kind of a platform he would ijke to stand on. it would give his supporters a chance to epmbat the arguments that a. e being advanced on the interest of Mayor Fagan’s third term candidacy. Prosecutor Speer has deold.d to take advantage of the law passed ia flhe i> tere.-t of Essex Qounily provi ling fo- an additional number of county d-te-tiie . lie has ask eel the Board of Ere .lwi Me s to include in its appropriations the- sum of $10,101) fir the siL'iriis if the ill n who are to be appointed. When the b' 1 was pending Mr. Speer took special pains to have it made known that lie was r. t intert*hc<l in it, and that even if it were allowed to become a law lie would' not take advantage of it. He declared at the time that lie ha d all the rt:fa dives he needed, and that he would- not put 1he taxpayers to file additional expense tin* law called for. There is no more reason now why the detectives should be ap pointed than there was last winter and as the Freeholders are not compelled to fix the salaries as the Prosecutor dec-id s they will lie generally commended if they overlook this item when the rax budget is being made up. The Fagan administration i* going to make another try to get that long prom ised and much needed City Hospital. There has been a lot of juggling with this project and polities is back of it all. Tile Mayor and his friends want to con trol the patronage and that accounts for t*he long delays in getting the improve ment under way. Siv r.il boards Five insisted on the right to- undertake tire work.* There has been so much political trickery that the dourts has leer ask d to take a hand in solving the problem as to which of the disputants have the authority to proceed with the w< rk. A conference is to be held in Mayor Fa gan’s office to-day to bring the matter to a focus. William X. Pars low. who died in the Adimndarks. was one of the best known and most popular Democrats in Hit’s >n Counity. He had lived in Hoboken p>-.ac tleall.v all ills life and there was n> man held in higher esteem by th > pe p’e of that city, as was shown on the several occasions lie ran for office. Three times he was elected coroner. In addition to this, he served1 as Freeholder and As semblyman and1 at the death of the late Sheriff John J. MePbiffips performed the duties of that office for the period of ten days. His death will be mourned by his many friend's throughout the county. Although Mqyor Fagan has lost con trol of the Board of Police Commission ers. Commissioners Mitchell and Tilden standing by Colonel Dickinson and the organization, with Commissioner McXul ty alone supporting the Mayor, he ex pects to exert considerable influence in the matter of appointments when the Civil Service Commission gets down to business. With everything even, it is but natural that the men whom the May or appoints on the Board will give his recommendations and suggestions due consideration. Comity Clerk John Rotherham, who is acting Republican leader in the absence of Col. Dickinson, has just returned from a two weeks’ vacation and from now until the Colonel’s return lie will be on deck at his office in the Court House. While the followers of Mayor Fagan will he offered advice and consolation by City Collector Fry. Mr. Rotherham will see that the organization Republicans do not suffer for want of comforting news as to the political situation. Mr. Fry and Mr. Rotherham are close friends and their paths just now are in opposite directions. ________ FELL AND BROKE HIS LEG Patrick MeXicliols. eight years old, pf Xo. 25 Westervelt, street, while playing at Heidt's barrel factory in Falrmount avenue, yesterday afternoon, fell aud brokp his right leg.

Smith and his staff, with tlie regimental hand playing a live ly air, the regiment marched into camp last Saturday, passing tlie "Little White House.” Governor Edward C. Stokes stood on the porch and acknowledged the salute of Colonel Smith and liis Staff by raising bis campaign hat. On the porch with the Governor were Brigadier-General R.

Freeman, wife of Colonel Freeman, and Mrs. Murray, wife of General Murray. The regiment looked well. The men were in “heavy marching order,” with blankets strapped over their shoulders, haversacks swung over their shoulders and each had a tin cup swinging from the haversack. When the First Regi ment left for home on Saturday the men were bronzed from the Week’s exposure in the sun, and there was a big contrast in the appearance of the Fourth Regi ment. Tlie men marched down the flank of the camp and the companies were dis missed at onc-e. The men took possession of the tents, which had been looked af ter previously by the regimental quarter master, Captain Benjamin F. Moore. Captain James R. Getchei. of Company I. had the honor of being the first officer of tlie day. Tlie senior officer of the guard was First Lieutenant Edward A.

At. a gallop the Signal Corps dashed by the cottage, the eommi-r sioned officers saluting the Governor, who doffed his campaign hat in acknowl edgement. There was a large crowd of pe >pl,> on 'Kite catnip ground to witnes s the fit sir “evening parade” of the Fourth Regi ment on Saturday. The re :dents from the neighboring summer resorts turned' out in numbers, and there were Several talfy-bo CvOic'he* and automobiles imnim erable, while some of the carriages wire the handsomest to be seen about the shorn The scene was almost as brilliant as that of “Governor's Day.” syal the Governor and his staff and Gene a I Campbell awl his staff were out to set the Fourth Regiment. The guard mount Sunday morning and evening parade in the afternoon- was the only duty performed by the soldier boys. It was a day of rest, and strict diJe-pline did not commence until Monday. The men enjoyed -the freedom from drill's and many of tligpi visited the neighboring re sorts or enjoyed) a clip in the surf. Religious s’trvices were held as usual on Robin lawn on the side of the “Little White House.” They were conducted by the Rev. Cornelius Brett, of Jersey City, and there was a large congregation out side of the men of the regiment. Gov ; eraor Stokes and the uiembeis of bis staff I and a lot of invited guests sat on the porch of the cottage and took part in the services. When “reveille” sounded in the morn ing at 5:30 o’eiock it announced to d.e men that the day’s work had aelua ly begun, and tlte tour of duty of six tin vs • was before them. The men turned o ,t willing.y, and the first rollcall was con ducted by the first sergeants of the com panies. The staff of the Fourth Regiment, is composed ns follows: It .but G.

POLICE MOT AT FAULT Many people are complaining about tlie number of (lead animals found on tiie streets, many of them left for days to putrify under the hot sun. Some peo ple blame the police. Chief Murphy said this morning:— "It seems to have become a fad now adays to put everything up to the police. The police are not obliged to remove these animals. The truth of the matter is. every dead animal found in the street is reported and the location given, by telephone to headquarters. At nine o’clock every morning a man from the Board of Health calls and gets all the reports and takes them to the Board of Health office. After nine o’clock the Health Board is notified by telephone of every dead animal of any size found in the street, and after four o’clock I’. M„ the contractor is notified by telephone. From June 1 to date 8ti horses. 150 dogs, 85 cats, 2 goats and 4 sheep have been found dead in tlie streets of the city and removed. Tlie number of horses found dead on the streets is only about fifty per eent. of tlie total number, as many die *n the stnbies and tlie owner in such cases notifies the contractor. Should the present hot spell of weather continue several days the mortality among horses will be much greater. About $10,000 worth of horses have died smee June I. Of course not all of the deaths were due to heat.” -4-. BUILDER’S BAD FALL Adolph Peterson, twenty-eight years old, of Xo. 222 Madison street. Hoboken, while at work, fell from a wall of the new building at Seventeenth and Mon mouth streets, yesterday afternoon. He was attended by an ambulance surgeon of St. Thdmas’, Hospital and taken home by friends. r 4 UNEXPECTED PYROTECHNICS Explosion of Firework? At Baldwin Park Sent Ital ian Merrymakers Fleeing* ACCUSATIONS 9F J£AL GUSY , The Materials Ware For Us a In a Prizs Comp3tition and Rivals Mad 3 Warm Charges. People residing in the vicinity of Bald win Park were startled at 1.45 o'clock yesterday afternoon by a sudden explo sion. followed by many .others with the rapidity of machine gnu firing, with Occasional roars and detonations that rocked the hills of the hollows of that section. Everybody below the Hill ex claimed:— ‘‘What’s up?” Everybody looked nn. Some thought that Dovo ’s p.ed ct d great storm had made a belated appear ance. Lots of smoke could be seen, but there was no sign of a conflagration or a storm in tlie heavens. A number of excited • Italians were seen beating it from the park in various directions. Tlie air was soon filled with the puffing noise of bell clanging fire apparatus hurrying to tlie scene. While the explosions were m pro gress sheets of flames began to shoot up from tlie northwest coniines of the park, which is enclosed with a high fence. It transpired that the material of one of tlie firms who was to compete in a fireworks display contest for a $50 prize at the picnic of the Societa di Muturo Soccorso Maria SS. del Carmine last night had been set off in some undiscov ered manner before the material wa3 even separated, and the frames for set pieces Keen set up. It was an afternoon as well as evening picnic and the grove was already filling up with Italian wo men and children in gala attire. A string of such pedestrians was wending its way down Baldwin avenue to the park and the Society on parade was marching to its destination. Excitement was intense. The material which was burned up in premature explosions had been dumped just outside the park and the flames had . reached the park fence at the corner of: Baldwin avenue and High street. About forty feet of the Baldwin avenue side of ; tlie fence was quickly burned away and ■ about twenty feet of that which extended around the corner. Jack Roberts. lessee of the park, soon had a small army of men at work replacing tlie burned fence with a new one, much to the disgust of a crowd of small boys who thought they, saw an opening for free admission to the park and some of whom looked injured at the accusation of an excited Italian: that they caused the daylight pyrotech nic display. The question as to how the explsves exploded was hotly debated? and the ac cusation that jealousy on the part of a prospective rival contestants for f' * $50 prize was the cause and owe of them knew more than he dared tell abi ut it added more fuel to the flames. Tha air, which was air. ady hotter than or dinary mortals care to stand simply s's zle.l with the extra hi at a !d-d by ;l ea« accusations and recriminations mad.- is choice Italian. Some one recalled i ha fact that the permit for the fireworks display was granted to Frank Damatoow March 17 last, and fu.tvv gl.nces wars cast by some of the more suspicious at S brawny Hibernian who was assisting in the patching up of die burned fence* After all, it may have been the heat tliaC sot off the explo-ives. The pi. nic pro ceedfd, however, and two other contest ants put up a fir. works show at night, which was enjoyed by tlie thousands whs attended flic tiist free concert at Mary Benson’s Little Italy Park, just bel .w| the hill.
