But It Is the boys from this city that will catch the winning eyes and smiling faces of the girls, and it is for them that we prepared a big line of Suits, Shoes and Hats. We lan ticlpate, a big trade this week.

OVER CIRCUS TO-MORROW. Set the alarm clock for 4 'a. m. to- I morrow, and be sure to get up when the bell rings. If you turn over for fa few more winks you 'are likely to Imiss the arrival of the circus and the finterestingi unloading scenes. Circuses 'have, a peculiar habit of arriving in ftown at unseemly hours. The one jthat comes to-morrow Is probably no 'exception to the general rule. It is fthe big Adam'Forepaugh and Sells fBrothers' show. It has not been in fthis city for two years, but is well re Imembered for the excellence of its performances two seasons ago. Only fthe best and biggest features of last season have been retained, and Dia ,volo, the dare-devil heads the list othinjj to equal in sensationalism his eat of looping-the-loop on his bicycle !has yet been found. I But there is another fellow with the Icircug ffiis year who is something of death-defying person himself. On khe bills he is called "Prodigious Por- jthos." He does a stunt on a bicycle jthat ixns close second to Diavolq in boint of -sensationalism. Porthos has a narrow track that reaches from thei Some cf the canvas to a point below bout twenty feet" from the ground, flhen it takes a short upward turn of h few feet and there ends abruptly, pown zhl incline Porthos comes at a rerriflc speed and shoots off and up Into tlit) air. He covers a distance of fifty feet and alights on another, plat form that Is ten feet high; then de scends on a short incline: to the around, I Iii now acts brought from foreign pountrlim for the first time there are La Faimlle Lecussion, who introduces priginal combined four-to-hand and park brake bareback and acrobatic Eerformances. Hungary contributes The Szarvasi 'roupe of nine m'ale and female Mag yar exponents of wild : 'acrobatic ln povatlocs. emotional dances and mys- pc melodies. Mons Hubert also comes. jTrom Europe to astonish with what' iaay be "well be termed prodigious acts ' pt strength and dexterity. In these,' kfter , exceedingly difficult feats of juggling, holding a sulky high in air, by the thills, he leaps with it from the ground to the back of his running porse, and also has the face to bal ance a park cart on his chin. To the! forty odd clowns who make things so ' laughably lively under the big top! pave been-added the four male andj female Martineks.who enjoy the repu- Ration of being the most tickling of; foreign fun-makers. Then there -wilt' !e forthcoming the Eddy family, who! peed ."O eulogistic introduction either it home or abroad. ' I Aerial performances galore are promised. The flyin .fordans will be seen again after . a long round-the- proria trip. The Banvard family of four in v a ew aerial act will be another feature. jThen there are the LaCarmens, who berform difficult stunts on a slender table suspended just underneath the florae of the canvas. . Of riders there are a score or more, of all schools of JjquestraJanism. fThe 'already big menagerie has had inany features added to it during the Pinter, chief among them being a col lection of fourteen full-grown beauti ful Polar bears. No show has ever before exhibited more than one. The big bunch of elephants include 'the svell-known Forepaugh dancing ele phants and the equally as well known Sells Brothers drill elephants. There .will be many other features to (amuse and instruct J The daily street parade includes ori ental and military sections, and is said to be la brilliant pageant A novel feature on the show grounds im mediately aftef.the parade will be a display of beautiful Japanese v day light fireworks.

BURNING VICTIMS LEAP FOR LIFE Captain In EndcaTor to Save Ht PaiieoKert Beached the Blaaslns Boat on a North Brother Island Shoal The Wreck Pall of Burned and Drowned Women and Children. NEW YORK, June 16. One of the most appalling disasters in the history of New York, tragic in its immensity, dramatic In its episodes and deeply pathetic in the tender age of most of its victims, took place in the East river at the entrance to Long Island sound, within a short distance of the New York shore and within sight of thou sands of persons, the majority of whom were powerless to minimise the extent of the catastrophe.' By the burning to the water's edge of the General Slocum, a three decked excursion steamer, the largest in these waters, more than 600 persons, the ma jority of whom were women and chil dren, were burned to death or drowned by Jumping overboard of; by being thrown into the whirlpools by the lurching of the vessel. Within a few hundred feet of the spot where the Seawanhaka was burn ed to the water's edge , in 1880 this similar disaster has resulted in a greater loss of life. The Slocum caught fire in midstream soon after passing Hell Gate and, with flames sweeping 'over her decks, ran up the East river to the shore of North Brother island, where she was beachedj Hundreds of Sunday school children', with their mothers, friends and teach ers, Jumped overboard and were drowned. Many more fearing to leap, were consumed In the fire. Others in the huddled multitude on the lower decks were crushed by the collapse of the hurricane dectT after the flames had eaten away the supports. It may nevet be known how many remained ' in the seething hulk or were carried away by the tide and left to settle in the river bed half a mile above. ' Coroner O' Gorman has reported that 408 bodies had been recovered. Of these 486 were examined and tagged by him at North Brother island. The others were taken from Biker's island. The value of the money and jewels re moved from, the bodies was fully $200, oool ' ' Many of those present at the destruc tion of the steamer believe that fully 800 or 400 persons whose bodies have not been recovered lost their lives. The list of missing runs even above these figures, and . the number of lives lost may not be accurately determined for several days. s Passengers who were saved have made specific accusations that the life preservers were so rotted by age that they fell apart in their hands and were practically worthless. Scathing arraignment of the alleged lack of discipline of the crew and of the bad condition of the emergency fire hose and the life preservers has been made by John Holthusen, the ven erable sexton .of St Mark's church. , Captain William H. Van Schaick said: "I did the best I could. I ordered Van Wart to, beach her, and we start ed for shore at One Hundred and Thirty-fourth street. But the shore there is lined with rocks, and I was afraid we would founder. There the captain of a tug warned me off. He shouted that the steamer would set fire to the oil tanks and the lumber. Then we start ed for North Brother island. My cloth ing and hat were burning when I jump ed Into the water. 1 , "Van Wart and Weaver got off ahead of me. I Jumped through the flames on the starboard side. I hit the bot tom and hurt my leg. Some nurse tielped me on the bank, and then the domjnie grabbed me. 'Thank Gpd, you're safe!' he said. One of the deck hands came up and kissed me." Here , the aged, white haired man broke down, and tears coursed down his cheeks. "I can't tell you how it happened," he said. Four hundred and ninety -eight bod ies have been recovered and are now being tagged at the morgues of Belle vue hospital and Harlem. Divers are still busy taking bodies from the hold of the vessel, which, they say, is choked with bodies, and hundreds who leaped or were thrown into the river have not been recovered. The General Slocum, which was the largest excursion steamer in these wa ters, left Third s-eet, East river, at 9:i& o'clock in the morning, having on board the annual Sunday school excur sion of St. Marie's German Lutheran church, Sixth street. Her destination was Locust Grove, one of the many re sorts on the sound. The excursion was in charge of the Rey. George C. F. Haas, pastor of the church. The ves sel was commanded by Captain Wil liam Van Schaick, one of the best known excursion boat captains in New York barber, who has commanded the General Slocum almost since she. was buih in 1891. The number of excur sionists on board Is variously estimated at from 1,500 to 2,500, but according to an official statement issued by the Knickerbocker Steamboat company the number of passengers was 878, that being one-third of the vessel's licensed capacity. The steamer .proceeded up the East river, eac-S 7 r decks being crowded with merrymakers, with bands playing and flags flying. The Slocum had ows off Orie' Hundred and Tliirty-flf til street, which Is at the extreme eastern end of Randall's Island, when fire broke out in a lunch room on the for ward deck, caused by the overturning of a pot of grease. A high wind fanned the blaze into instant fury, 1 . Efforts to subdue the fire were futile, and word was sent at once to the cap tain, who started to land the steamer at One Hundred ' and Thirty-fourth street. 'He was warned, however, that the boat would set fire to- lumber yards and oil tanks there and changed the Slocum's course, heading her for North Brother Island, half a mile away. The flames had- now" broken out all along either side of the steamer and were fanned by a strong head wind. The passengers, seized with panic, rushed to the rear of the vessel to escape the heat and the smoke that were constant ly Increasing. Policemen and deck hands aboard the boat struggled hard to quiet the panic, but their efforts were unavailing. The wild disorder in creased as frantic mothers sought to find their children, who had &een at play about the decks. 'The steamer's whistle was blowing for assistance, and tugs and other nearby- craft answered to the call. Be fore any of the boats could reach the burning steamer, however, the frantic women and children began to Jump overboard. The current was strong, and there are many whirlpools In the channel. The boats that were follow ing the Slocum picked up many from the water, but these were only a small number of those that were seen strug gling in the swift current. On the Slocum the first sweep of the flames cut off escape from the hurri-. cane deck, where a great many of the women and children were crowded to gether, and soon burned away the light woodwork, which supported the deck. It is thought that most of those who were on this deck were burned. As the fire increased the struggle to gain a point of vantage at the stern became frightful. Women and children crowded against the' after rail until it gave way, and hundreds were pushed off into the river. After this there was a steady stream of those who jumped Or were thrown into the "water. The tugs and small craft following after kept close 'within the wake of the Slo cum and rescued all of those who came within reach of their crows. Few of those who were saved had on life pre servers. At no time during the prog ress of the fire was there any oppor tunity to either lower the lifeboats or get the life preservers out from under neath the seats. Through all the wild panic the officers and men of the blaz ing boat stayed at their posts. Women went literally insane at once. Some had allowed their, little charges to be separated from them, and in that 'frantic mob there was no chance for reunion. Men, maddened by v fear, trampled down women and children to get to the sides and leap overboard. "To most of the terrorized multitude it was but a choice of death that offered. To stay on board meant the awful certainty of being burned alive. To take to the water meant for all but a few the certainty of death by drown ing. At the point where the steamboat was beached is a high stone wall which made it Impossible for those who were In kthe water to climb out on land. They swam, such as could, round and round in a vain effort to gain a foot hold somewhere. The engineer of the locomotive of the gas company at " Lawrence point says that when he saw that the Slo cum ww afire he blew his locomotive whistle, signaling to the captain of the burning vessel to put in at that point. The -Slocum's . captain, however, ei ther did not hear the whistle or for some reason decided tha.t it was better to beach the vessel on North Brother island. . ( i. " . Had the Slocum been beached at Lawrence point a thousand willing hands would have been ready to as sist in the work of rescue, as there were hundreds of men at work along the shore at the time. It was reported that George Conklln, chief engineer of the General Slocum, had been burned to death at his post. The Slocum got within fifty feet of the northwest point of North Brother Island and there stopped in the shal low water. Just before beaching, the hurricane deck, the supports of which had burned away, fell with Its lead of women and children, adding to " the panic and horror of those on the deck below. Very soon after parts of the second and third decks , also caved in. But before this, happened the tug Wal ter Tracey had come alongside the burning steamer and been lashed to it. Many of the passengers were taken off by the crew of the Tracey, which re mained alongside the steamer until the tug's pilot house took fire. For hours the bodies of the burned and the drowned drifted ashore on the Island and between One Hundred and Thirty-first an One Hundred and Thirty-eighth streets in Manhattan. Some came ashore still alive. . Many of these died, while others will recover. The pastor, Rev. G. C. F. Haas, lost his wife and daughter. His mother-in-law, his sister-in-law and her daughter were also among those who perished. Herbert S. Nulson, an employee of the De La Vergne Refrigerator com pany, said that he was working in a tower in the company's factory at the foot of East One Hundred and Thirty eighth street when a fellow employee called: " - , "Here comes a big boat up the river, and I believe she's on fire." "I looked down the river," said Nul son, "and saw this steamboat, which I was sure then was the General Slo cum. The flames were just beginning to make headway when I first saw her, and by the time she came opposite us I could see that her decks were crowd ed with women and children, Who be gan to jump into the water. I was certain then that Athe captain would come to land at the foot of East One Hundred and Thirty-eighth street, as It seemed the only logical thing for him to do; It was a straight short course. But no, for some reason he kept out in the river and headed for North Brother island. ,. A Jioon as-;th poUsf. beajlbaf POPULAE LATE WANTS.

Had Another Man's Name on Collar, But Still He Claims It. "Say, chief," said a local paper hanger named Raymond, as he entered the police station with a handsome brindled bulldog frisking about him, "that dog Is mine. I bought him, but he disappeared some time ago and I could get no trace of him until this morning when I met him on Bank street. " That" collar ,you see on him doesn't belong td ' me. Harry Du rant's name is' on It. but I called at the town clerk's office to see If he had the dog registered and was told that he hadn't. I'm going to take off that collar, put on one of my own and have him registered. I tried to find Harry to tell him about it, but he is out of town." The chief said he sup posed he knew his business and then the man and dog turned out into Har rison avenue and headed for the City hall building.

He saw monev In It and rented It out at t-ie rate of $2 a day. He was becoming rich, It is said, on old "Billy" when "Billy's" former owners heard of his degredation, whereupon they engaged Sheriff Doner. ty to replevin him. The suit was to have been heard in Middlebury,. but not a Justice there considered himself qualified to unravel . the tangle of "Billy's" ownership, for Yerk considers the animal Is his property. This morn ing the suit was mad returnable be fore Justice Church. . The Spencers allege "Billy's" value to be $95. '" CYCLONE AT SANTIAGO DE CUBA New York, June 16.
