Tbey wera also taken to tba Hudson Street Hospital. 'There were a score of others who received light Injuries wbosa names could not be learned. . , There wera only a few ladies oa board, and tbey behaved admirably. Superintendent Miller, wbo has charge of tba company's affairs at Barclay Street, aid that ba would sot give any Information about tba accident It was said by those wbo saw tba accident that tba strong tide was tbe chief cause. Tba boat bad slowed up about forty feet out from the slip, and was slowly proceeding Into tba pocket of tba slip when tba tide earrled her with great force against tba pier. , ; After considerable manoeuvring by' the pilot, tbe vessel was docked and the passengers landed. The Injured ferryboat Is one of tba latest additions to tba fleet of handsome screw ferryboats of the Hoboken Ferry Company. 1 Tba damage will probably amount to about $1,000. s the cabin will have to ba rebuilt. After the passengers ware all safely landed, the boat was taken to the company's yards, la Hoboken, for repairs. . ' A. H. Pltford, aa assistant boUer Inspector, who was on board, said: M 1 was In the boiler room at the time the Netherlands at ruck the Vesey Street Pier. The shock aa tremendous, and the boat keeled over frightfully. When I ran up to the deck there was a great hole In tba cabin amidships, a the tar board aide, and the cabin, hat there waa left of It, waa Uttered with lumber. 1 saw blood stains at every step, the plan was Uttered with hats, umbrellas, and hand satohela "Bo far as X could discover, tha hull of . the boat waa not Injured, but I could not understand wby the upper .cabin did not settle down, as the supports beneath seamed to have been torn away."

The ..entire aide of tha cabin was smashed In, the debris falling on those wbo had been knocked down. . Thoea wbo were near tba cabin stairway 'rushed up to ths top deck. It Is a wonder the floor of the deck did not cave In. aa it bad no apparent support after tba aide of the boat was crushed In." . Mr. Alces was asked for bis theory as to the cause or the accident. "It was nothing else than gross careteee-Beaa,M ba answered. " There was no fog as an excuse. Tha pilot evidently made a mle-. calculation as to the strength of the tide.

Lawis Wants a Speed at Twelve Xllea Closed aad Oaea Cars Feadera as Ufa Preservers. Tha Committee on Railroads of tha Brooklyn Board of Aldermen met in the City Hall last evening to consider several Interesting subjects. One was In relation to tha speed of ths trolley cars; another was the placing of fenders on all trolley cars, and the third as to tha running of open cars when tha weather Is cold or unfit for opea cars to ba operated. Alderman Colson aresided. Daniel F. Lewis, President of tha Brooklyn Heights Railroad Company, was the principal rail road man to object to miniMn; the speed of tha troUey cars to six miles an hour, as was called for la the resolution of tha Board of Aldermen. ' If you restrict us to six miles an hour." ha said, " It will ba worse than the old horse cars.' . He said tha people demanded rapid transit! and this could not ba furnished at tha rata of six miles aa hour. He also argued that reducing tbe speed would injure tba city, as tha value of property In tha outlying sec tions would ba decreased. In New-York City, ha said, about Sixty-fifth Street; tha cars wera Operated at a speed of nine miles an hour with perfect Safety. Under tbe same condition the trollev cars rnuM ba nn- erated safely ia Brooklyn with a speed of iwtm nuies u nour. Alderman Walkley asked Mr. Lewis If a nigh rate of speed was not a menace to fiubllo safety. Mr. Lewis's answer was that t was not. Ha said accidents were not tha fault of the company, and that, if the Aldermen wanted to pass proper resolutions, they should aim at the men who wera in charge of the cars, and not tha company. wi wu mama positive mat in is question of a reduction In tha anMd of ih. iroiier cars naa oeen instigated by the elevated railroad people, as their business bad decreased since tbe trolleys became popular In Brooklyn. The proposition to vuuww uiv spceu ui ine iroiiey cars, na aaiu. had not been made in rood faith. CoL William Hempstead, In behalf of 300 property owners In Bergen Street, said they aid not object to the speed or the number of cars operated on that street during the day, but they did object to their sleep being broken and their health ruined by the terri- pie noises made by the cars at night. Tbe Question of onen cars than rm and Mr. Lewis said that the choice between onen aad closed cars ahnnM K w to tha discretion of tha companies. It was true, he said, that the open cars were run on cold and wet days, but it was done because the patrons of the road demanded It Ha said that a test had been made on oold days by running a closed car with an open car as a trailer, m na open car was crowaeo. wnue me ciosea car was nearly empty. He believed that tha railroad sanlea were the best luds-ea of this matter. There were a half dosen different models or car renaers orougni into the room, and wvu. ii"w wa nuwui 9 prove that hla was tbe beat. Lawyer De Fere said that the fenders at present usea were worse than none, and inai, u tne present lender should hit a man. be waa aura to have his lega broken. 'in is question is to be ten to a committee of three railroad men, three citizens, and three others chosen by tha six. The committee came to no conclusion on any s me mauera nexore it last night.- COLLECTORS WAST "POSTAGE DUE" STAMPS As the It snaps CaaaetBe Pareaaaed, They Ave Obtained by a Base.

HIS RACIXG SPEECH SOT. THE CAUSE Intimated that He Objected, to Do lag tbe Work: Because He Ke- Sardod It it Beneath Ilia Vlgnltj. WASHINOTON, Nov. 23. Many Inquiries were made tofday at the Navy Department for Information about the apparent disturbance of mind ander which Admiral Meade Is laboring, but (about the causa of which be declines to be Interrogated. Tha Acting Secretary of the Navy is also dumb about the i matter, I although when . questioned whether there bad been any correspondence between the department and Admiral Meade since the meeting of tba marine architects and engineer, he admitted that there had been. Ha bad no mora to say oa tha sub ject. I Tha naturi of tha correspondence Is known to but a few officer of tbe navy. and until tbekr shall bava concluded that it may or must! ba made public it is likely to be kept private. Soon after tha delivery by Admiral Meade of his speech on tha vessels of tha navy, (in which ha suggested a race between tha Columbia or one of tha other large new crtdsers and one of tht fast At- lantio liners! It waa suggested that tht prompt and positive veto of tha proposition by tha department and the subsequent ap pointment ofl Capt. Bunco In place of Ad miral Meade on the Cincinnati board of Inquiry might have been Intended as a reprimand fdr what possibly was regarded as disrespecn to tbe department officers. It may be Asserted on the authority of aa officer who is well Informed aa to the view taken In thi department of the speech of Admiral Medde that hla displacement from the Cincinnati board of Inquiry has nothing whatever to do with the - racing" speech. It Is asserted that If Admiral Meade should be asked to sustain this assertion he prompt ly would corroborate it. There waa no In tention of criticising his speech, but If there had been It would have been because of his remarks In reference to the British ahlp Blake. It Is probable that there would have been severe and disagreeable comment If similar remdrks had been made In England touching a hypothetical case In which an American snip was Involved. It la not con sidered good form in the navy to allude. In PubUa speecAies, to captures of vessels of a foreign natfcn with which this country Is on friendly terms. One officer, who says that his onlnlon Is largely conjecture, asks if It would not be well to find but If Admiral Meade's difficulty Is not a suiden and excessive appreciation of his new and exalted rank. This officer, a man of experience and well acquainted with tha personnel of tha navy, says that ha would not pa surprised to. learn .that the appointment of Capt Bunco to the Cincinnati board followed an objection by Admiral Meade to seTve In that capacity. This hard ly can be I accurate, for Admiral Meade undoubtedly would obey orders, however keenly he (appreciated the dignity of his nigh office! The suggestion is. however. that his aversion to sitting as a member of the board aiay have been communicated in uca sirons language as to lead tbe department to decide that ba must be displaced and another officer substituted as a mark ui ouiuiai Disapproval oi his objection. ii is piaip mat it is the opinion at tbe ueuarunans mat Aanurai jaeaae was not removed from the board for hla mwh at the marine architects' dinner, but for soma uw lui sa arisen since tne owner. While tbe Secretary of tha Km raoantlv ordered an (officer to stop writing a series of papers which ha had begun in one of the magaslnes, because a line officer complained ui me tenox oi me article, mere would be no criticism of auch a aneech aa that f Admiral Mpade, except for the nnadvisable reierence to tne unglisn cruiser Blake,, when there waa no remark in it that re flected upon the Conduct of the Administra tion or or any superior omcer. It undoubtedly will be found, if Admiral Uviit, ahall be willing ItO suomit his corresnondenca ta the press, that tne change in the Cincinnati ooara can pa tracea to an entirely different reason. I Admiral iMeede has a brother who Is a clerk In ohe of the bureaus of tha Navy Department. When seen to-day in reference to tha auggeation that tha Admiral had oDjectea te auty on ooaras ana courts, be UU. I " I liaVM not bmb tha AAmlrat but I understand that he has nrtMin against auxy or tnis xina. He is apt to re- Sard such) work as undignified for an of-cer of hip rank and station. I should not be surprised if he had vented himself on the subject if the has found his work as senior memoer at - ma tancinnau Doara uncon genial, i " You know the Admiral la ant in press his (sentiments on any subject, and. muuwiua; auw w uwu upon sucn interruptions of his regular duty as his ranant ltait to the Cincinnati board. I should think it very iiaeiy no nas asaea to be relieved. Admiral Meade Is anxious to Ium a mm. mana commensurate witn his noaitinn in the navy, and I believe ha looks unnn tha vumiu&nu oi a yarn or a neet as sufficient duty whleh officers of bis rank should be called upon to perform without being asked w bwt uu vuuria ana ooaras.
