Fire Broke Out Again on Black Tom
Pier, and Firemen Were Kept Busy
Last Night Companies
Xew York, Aug. 1. With three offi
cers of corporations doing business 011
Black Tom island under arrest and a
warrant out for a fourth, preparations
were under way at .Jersey City for a
joint federal, state, county and municipal
investigation to fix the blame for .Sunday
mornings disaster, which killed at least
three men, iniured scores and caused ap
proximately .$2U,000,(MK) property damage.
rire broke out among the ruins, on the
island last night, and one-half the tiro de
partment of Jersey City, with fircboats
from New ork and Xew Jersey, lought
the names, which centered about a pier
where large quantities ot shrapnel and
large calibre shells were stored. Shells
exploded In an almost continuous can
nonade. Chief Rosier Boyle of the Jersey
City fire department said he expected the
ruins to smoulder for a week longer.
The theory that the fire which caused
the disastrous explosion started on a
munitions barge, tied up at the island,
was scouted bv Robert S. Hudspeth, pros
ecutor of Hudson county, and Theodore
B. Johnson, president of the Johnson
Lighterage company, owner of the muni
tions barge. Both declared that the fire
originated in two Lehigh Valley railroad
freight cars laden with explosives.
Johnson, who w as arrested on a war
rant charging manslaughter, as were Al-j
bert M. Diekman, Black Tom agent of
the Lehigh alley, ind Alexander David
son, superintendent of the National Stor
age company, denied all responsibility
for the eonllagration after his arraign
ment. He intimated that the fire was
of incendiary origin.
In spite. . of Johnson's assertion, the
Lehigh Valley issued another statement
reiterating its charge that the fire had
hfgun on the Johnson lighter, which they
contended was moored at one of its piers
Prosecutor Hudspeth corroborated
Johnson's story. He said he had obtained
an affidavit from the commander of the
tug Geneva, which gavea comprehensive
story of the disaster.
"According: to the affidavit and other
evidence," said the prosecutor, "the fire
started two hours before the Johnson
barge was destroyed, and it was not this
barge that caused the great explosion.
The captain of the Geneva was towing
away another barge, said to have been
loaded with a tremendously high explo
sive, acting upon orders of a Lehich Val
ley official, when the bargi4", which had
shown no sign of being afire, exploded.
This was the first explosion, and the one
that was most severe.
TIip second great explosion occurred
when the fire reached a number of freight
cars loaded with dynamite and another
tremendously high explosive, the charac
ter of which is still to be determined.
Mr. Hudspeth declared fully three
fifths of the explosives shipped to the en
tente allies passed through Jersey City.
Late in the day, a warrant was issued
for the arrest, 011 a charge of manslaugh
ter, of Edmund L. Mackenzie of l'lain
tield, X. J., president of the National
Storage company, whose plant at Black
Tom was destroyed. ,
Berlin, GerniMny, Aug. 1. Kinperor
William in a message to Chancellor Von
Ilollweg declares the German nation has
been through two years of unprecedented
heroic deeds and suffering. He contin
ues: "Still there are hard times ahead.
After a terrible fetor m of two years of
war the desire for sunshine and peace
is stirring in all human hearts but the
war continues because the battle cry of
the enemy governments Is still the de
struction of Germany. Firm confidence
has never left me that Germany i in
vincible in spite of the superior numbers
iif our enemies. Germany knows she is
fighting for her existence. She relies
on God's help."
"TIDE HAS TURNED."
Gen. Haig Sees the Advantage Now with
the Entente Allies.
With the British Armies in the Field,
Aug. 1, via London. At the close of
two years of the war and of the first
month of the British offensive, General
Sir Douglas Haig, commander-in-chief of
the group of British armies in France, in
speaking of the situation, laid particular
emphasis on the fact that the beginning
of the third year of the war saw the
initiative entirely with the allies on all
fronts, while England for the first time
was exerting something like a power
worthy of her numerous resources on
"The tide has turned," he said. "Time
has been with the allies from the first.
It is only a question of more time until
we win a decisive victory, wnien is tlie
one sure way to bring peace in this, as in
other wars. I'ntil this victory is won, it
ill-becomes a British soldier in France to
think of peace."
Harry Boyd Was Charged with Breach of
Brattlelniro, Aug. 1. The jury tnat
heard the case or the state against Harry
Byd, charged with breach of the peace
in so driving an automobile that the ma
chine collided with a bridge, a team and
hit a man and that one of the occupant..
-Mrs. W . M. Kamlall, was throw n out and
seriously injured, returned a verdict of
guilty yesterday afternoon.
As the case is one of the first
Vermont in which the state luis tried
for a heavier sentence than is possible
under the charge of reckless driving, it
is probable that it will be carried to the
supreme court by Attorney Harry II.
Chase, who represented Boyd.
Boyd is out on bail of' $1,0(10 fur
nished by his father. A motion for an
arrest of judgment will be filed to
day and argued to-morrow.

Xew Vork, Aug. 1. Having outlined
his issue in his speech of acceptance at
Carnegie hall last night, diaries E.
Hughes to-day fairly embarked on a
campaign for the presidency. "America
first and America efficient" was the as
sertion in the speech generally selected
as the keynote of the coming political
battle. Hughes is to address a number
f women's societies this afternoon.
At the Carnegie hall meeting last night
Hughes was formally notified of the ac-
ion of the Republican convention in Chi
cago, the mil was crowded to capacity
and when Hughes appeared shortly before
o clock the audience cheered the candi
date for several minutes. The nominee,
recognizing Theodore Roosevelt in one of
the boxes, waved to him, and Colonel
Roosevelt clapped his hands in ackuowl-
Sent.tor Harding of Ohio, chairman of
the notification committee, was cheered
at every reference to the name of the
nominee and a republican victory in -November.
When he hud finished the band
played and the crowd rose and cheered
Mr. Hughes was frequently interrupted
by laughter and applause. Soon after he
started to pe?.k an enthusiastic admirer
of Colonel Roosevelt rising somewhat un
steadily shouted "We want Teddy."
Scattering cheers and some hisses fol
lowed. He shouted his sentiments again,
wa.a hissed down and remained quiet
t After delivering his speech Mr. Hughes
was host at a reception to the notifica
tion committee and the invited guests to
the notification ceremony.
In his speech of acceptance Mr. Hughes
attacked the administration straight
from the shoulder on the weakness of its
Mexican policy. Not less uncompromis
ing was his denunciation of America's
policy in European affairs. He declared
for adequate preparedness and for a
higher type of Americanism.
One-fourth of the speech was devoted
to Mexico. Step after step taken by the
administration with reference to Mexico
was assailed from the days of Huerta to
the note sent the de facto government bv
the state department June 20, last, part
of which was quoted in the speech.
To attempt to control tlie domestic
concerns of Mexico," Mr. Hughes said,
was simply intervention, not less so be
cause disclaimed. The height of folly
was to have a vacillating and ineffective
intervention." The seizure of Vera Cruz,
the nominee said, "'was war, of course,''
Later we retired from Vera Cruz," he
continued, "giving up this noble war
fare. We had not obtained the salute
which was demanded. We had not ob
tained reparation for affronts. Recently
the naked truth was admitted bv a cab-
net officer. We are now informed that
we did not go to era ituz to force
Huerta to salute the flag. We are told
hat we went there to 'show Mexico that
we were in earnest in our demand that
Huerta must go.' That is, we seized
Vera Cruz to depose Huerta. The ques
tion of the salute was a mere pretext."
America, Mr. Hughes continued, had
no policy of aggression toward Mexico,
no desire for any part of her territory,
but wished her to have peace, stability
"The conduct of the administration has
created difficulties we shall have to sur
mount," he said. "We shall have to
adopt a new policy, a policy of firmness
and consistency through which alone we
can promote an enduring friendship. We
demand from Mexico the protection of
the lives and property of our citizens and
the security of our border from depreda

but what does it avail to use some of
the strongest words known to diploniacv-
if ambassadors can receive the impres
sion that the words are not to be taken
seriously?" The nominee reiterated his
declaration that had this government left
no doubt that it meant to hold Germany
to "strict accountability" there would
have been no loss of life on the Lusitania.
During this period, he said, the only dan
ger of war lay in the weak course of the

which constitute the most densely popu
lated region of the United States:
Maine, Xew Hampshire, Vermont, Massa
chusetts, Xew Vork, Connecticut, Xew
lersey, Pennsylvania, West v irginia,
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Ken
tucky. It will be noted that the number
of stars in the Community Hag indicates
the number of states in which Chautau
quas are held.
There are five great Community Chau
tauqua circuits, including 3o3 different
cities and towns.
In order that all of its Chautauquas
may be held during the months of June,
July, August and early September, it is
necessary for the system to have 2i dif
fcrent Chautauquas running at the same
time, 111 as many different towns, every
dav in the season.
Five Community Chautauquas will be
held this summer in Xew York City.
One of these will be held in an enormous
tent on Broadway, in the heart of the
Four hundred and sixteen persons- are
on the payroll of the system during the
Chautauqua season. Of this number, 143
are college students, representing many
of the principal colleges and universities
in the United States, including Harvard,
Yale, Dartmouth, Columbia, Princeton,
Chicago, Michigan, California, etc.
The Community Chautauqua system
cwns 33 large auditorium tents, each
seating from 1,000 to 1.800 people.
The tents are made of 10-ounce khaki
army duck, according to government
specifications. Each tent contains more
than a mile of rope.
The present cost of each tent outfit,
with canvas fence, ticket ofiiee, platform
decorations, covered entrance, tools,
trunks, etc., is in excess of $1,750. The
tent itself is valued at $1,4."3.
The raid admissions during a single
season total more than 2.200,000.
Five hundred and twenty-nine daily
and weekly newspapers carry Communi
ty Chautauqua advertising.
To visit all of the towns on Com
munity Chautauqua circuits by the
shortest possible route would require
1(1,200 miles of travel.
