Illegal Assessment Has Existed in ffartf 6. Could Giro Xofliing Clear About the Charges. Investigation of Ward Not Yet at an End. 21 Protests Against Calvary Cemetery Extension. Tho board of assessors gave a hearing today on the complaint of William H. Bradley of ward 6 that there had been a large Illegal assessment of polls in the ward. In his complaint to the board Sir Bradley named 300 persons, who, he said, had no right to be on the ward S list. The hearing today was for the purpose of learning from Mr Bradley what he proposed to offer as evidence and to arrange for a general hearing at which he might rresent his evidence. Some questions were asked cf him regarding the alleged illegal assessments, but nothing definite was learned, as most of what he related wax hearsay. The board will give a formal hearing Thursday morning. Regarding the ward 21 alleged Illegal assessments Bee Comlns of the board said today that It would probably finish Its Investigation next Thursday. A committee has been appointed consisting of Chairman Drew and Edward B. Daily to personally look up the 14 men who failed to respond to the notice of the board to appear at the hearing and explain the status of their case. If they cannot be located their names will probably be dropped from the list. Assessor Daily said today 'that ft would be impossible to stop charges of illegal assessment while the present system continues. What ought to be done, he said is to pass a law compelling householders to file under oath with the board of assessors cn May 1, a list of all male persons above the age of In the house at that time. The board could then hold someone responsible for the names. As It Is today the assessors are obliged to take names aa they are given. Protests against the exlension of Cali ary cemetery on Harvard and Malk Hill sts, Dorchester, still continue to be received at city hall. It Is a waste of time, however, to undertake to stoo the project by appealing to the author-ties at city hall, as the matter left tho aldermen's hands entirely after the permit was granted over the veto of Mayor Quincy. If the land owners who protest and the cemetery corporation members who object to what Is considered the extravagant price to be paid for the land hope for redress an appeal must be had to the courts. Bomesof the members of the board of aldermen who opposed the petition have been looking Into the question of the cost of the land and the conditions under which It is to be bought by the cemetery association. The argument In favor of the proposition to extend the cemetery is that more room was needed for single graves, as poor people cannot afford to pay for lots. Against this it is pointed out that, with the exception of Forest Hills and Mt Auburn, graves In Calvary are higher than In any of the other cemeteries In and about Boston. being $18 and $20. against $8 and $10 In Mt Benedict and $7 In Holy Cross. Regarding the objections of adjoining real estate owners. It may be said that they represent $300,000 worth of property. When a hearing was given on the petition for the extension of the cemetery the only person who appeared in favor of it was the secretary of the cemetery association and an attorney acting for the owners of the land, while several other owners of land appeared to object, and a number of abutters sent their remonstrances to the board of al-erm?n and afterward protested to Mayor Quincy. The land In question has been plotted by the survey division of the street department. One street was to run from the corner of Harvard and Walk Hill sts, intended as a boulevard to Milton. The construction of the boulevard would increase the value of the adjoining land and cause Us development as a residential section. Another street has been planned to run from Blue Hill av to the corner of Oakland and Harvard sts. Mr Holbrook, one of the trustees under the will of Hannah F. C. Holbrook, who owned the land which the cemetery association Is about to purchase, in certain deeds of land In that vicinity owned by him, which were given in ISS7, Imposed certain restrictions which ere for the benefit of his adjoining land. These restrictions were to remain In force for 20 years, and the purchaser waa given an agreement which stated that any conveyance of the remaining l.uus similarly situated on Walk Hill st and Mattapan at, extended, would be made subject to similar restrictions. Furthasers of land In that vicinity obeyed the restrictions, and they relied upon the promise that that section was to be developed for residential purposes, These people have protested to the board of aldermen against the extension of the cemetery, as they claim will greatly Injure their property. They assert that bouses found in close proximity to cemeteries are usually of aa Inferior kind, and that it Is hard to get tenants who will pay good rents In such a neighborhood. Two new cases of smallpox were reported to the board of health this morning. one a man the other a child. Both were in Roxbnry.

The child, while not seriously affected, was taken in charge by the health ofiil cials and she was sent to the hospital at Gallon's island. There was no connection between the two cases.

Jeste 3L fftisauB, Hassfaetcrer, if Stw fork City, Com plain act. i Asserts He Was Struck in Face, Kicked and Pummelled at Station 4. . Patrolman George A. Jordan of division 4 wax again on trial before the police commissioners today. This time the charge was that of assaulting Jesse M. Welsman of 2 East 80th st. New York city. Mr Welsman Is a neckwear manufacturer. Tbs assault occurred In Lagrange st station on the evening of July 24. Mr Welsman was In Boston on business. W. B. Sullivan appeared as counsel for Mr We'.sman and lawyer Bangs for patrolman Jordan. Mr Welsman told the commissioners that he Was placed under arrest by patrolman Jordan on Essex st- With two buyers for Boston dry goods bouses he stood there waiting for Joseph A. Gleason. He waa placed under arrest on the charge of blocking the sidewalk. At the station, while waiting for his friends to get a ball commissioner, he said the assault was committed. Patrolman Jordan and another officer took him down stains to the cell room. On the stairs he said that Jordan struck him In the face, kicked him and pum-meled him In a brutal way. He said there was no provocation, but Jordan simply played the part of a brute. Welsman was bailed out that evening, and the next day appeared in court. He was convicted, and appeal taken to the superior court. The case Is still pending. The day following the assault he was examined by Medical Examiner Frank Harris. In a letter which the medical examiner wrote, and which was read by lawyer Sullivan, the former said that he examined Mr Weisman, whom he found to be a mlld-appearing and quiet man, and had found contusions to both eyes, an abrasion of the upper lip, bruises on the right side of the neck, right cheek swollen and discolored, and severe strains to the muscles of the back. He had the appearance of a man badly used up. The medical examiner eald that, in his opinion, Mr Weismans face would be disfigured for several weeks. Mr Gleason told the commissioners of accompanying Mr Weisman to the patrol box, of going to the station, and later waiting for him at an uptown hotel. He said he came there in a carriage, assisted by a Mr Thompson, a dry goods buyer. He said his face was swollen, and he was In a dazed condi tlon. He could not have come to the hotel unassisted. Mr Gleason, assisted by others, put Mr Welsman to bed. Patrolman Jordan took the stand in his own defense. He said the arrest was made at 7.30 In the evening. The men were standing in the middle of the sidewalk. People were obliged to step Into the street to get by. He told them to step one side, and they asked him to repeat what he said. This he did, and then waited for them to move away. They didnt do so. Mr Weisman was the nearest to him. He placed him un der arrest. He had never seen the man before, and 'held no hostile feeling toward him. -What happened while you were tak lng Mr Welsman to a cell?" lawyer Bangs asked. I was assaulted, the patrolman replied. . "How? As I was going down the stairs he struck me in the face, was the reply. "Did you strike him? "Yes, with the flat of my hand. "Anything else? "I grabbed him and pushed him up against the wall. He fell down, and while I was trying to pick him up he kicked me in the stomach. "What did you do? "I started with him to the cell. He grabbed a furnace poker and tried to hit me with It. I took it away from him, and pushed him Into the cell. You did not strike him with the poker? No, I did not. Did he make any complaint? Yes, he said he thought it unjust to lock him up. "Do you think it right for you to strike back at a prisoner who has struck you? lawyer Sullivan asked the patrolman. 'T have a perfect right to defend myself was the reply. "Do you think it defending yourself to strike a prisoner? "Sometimes, was the answer. "You would have had no difficulty (Jordan is more than six feet in hight and weighs about 200) in picking Mr Weisman up under your arm and carrying him to the cell, would you? T wouldnt want to carry him a great distance. Lieut Kimball aid that patrolman Jordan took his prisoner alone downstairs. He did not see any other officer go down or come up from the cell room. He heard no noise down there. Mr Welsman made no complaint to him of being assaulted. When he was balled out be told the bail commissioner that he thought he should have been taken before a magistrate and tried before being locked in a cell. That was the only complaint he made. The lieutenant did not see the injuries of which the medical examiner and Mr Gleason told. The commissioners took the matter under consideration. The decision will be awaited with much Interest by members of the department. because patrolman Jordan has been before the board several times before. Again, the defense was an admission by the officer of having struck Mr eisrnan. He said he struck him only twice, while Mr Weisman said he was struck many times. FUNERAL OF F. G. MITCHELL.

Five of the 13 secured bonds, but eight didnt. The eight in the dock looked sad, very sad, as they took their places along the firing line in front of the judge this morning. Of those who had procured bonds for their appearance, but four came forward as their names were called.

Albert Golder and Freeman Hicks, Upset In the Bay at Hempstead, L I, and Perish Together. HEMPSTEAD. It L Aug 28-Albert Golder and Freeman Hicks, two well-known residents of Hempstead, were sailing In the South bay yesterday afternoon In a catboat when a squall capsized their craft. Both men were thrown into the water, and, having all their clothing and shoes on, were unable to swim to their upturned boat. With the desperation of drowning men they grasped each other in their arms, and before assistance could reach them both sank beneath the surface. The bodies were carried out to sea by the awift tide that runs through Jones Inlet, where the accident occurred. The squall struck the men between the club houses of the Hempstead Bay yacht club and of the Prospect club. At the latter club were several well-known New York politicians, who sailed to the drowning men, but before they reached the boat the men had disappeared. Several of the club members attempted to recover the bodies, but were unsuccessful. Both the drowned men were married and bad families. ANXIOUS TO GET HOME. Americans In London Find It Hard to Secure Passage on the Ocean Liners Owing to the Heavy Travel. A dispatch from the London Times was printed in New York papers of recent date to this effect: "This city is crowded with Americans who express an Intense desire to return home and are unable to do so. The steamship offices are crowded to the door every day and the officials are worried out of their lives through their efforts to satisfy applicants for passage. Even with the extra Tuesday steamers the Cunard line is turning away money. In many cases extraordinary sums havo been offered for staterooms or mere berths. One hundred and fifty guineas for a cabin is almost a common price. Mr F. O. Houghton of the White Star line said: "Fully three-quarters of the people who go over get their return passage at the same time. This ticket calls for a certain berth in a certain room on certain ship. Of course there are some who do not thus provide for their return passage, but they can get back on inferior steamers sailing to Philadelphia, Baltimore or similar ports. As far as the companies taking high prices for accommodations $750 for a berth there are suites of rooms on all boats which regularly sell for that amount, and are regularly bought by certain people who go over and back frequently. No company will accept any higher price for any accommodation than their schedule calls for. And they would certainly not take a higher price for any accommodation which was sold than the holder of It had paid. The eteamshlp companies do not do their business that way. Mr John Farley of the Dominion line thought that those who bought their return passage when they went out was about half. He said that his companys ships were all full, and that they were mostly taken by those who went out on the companys ships and bought their return tickets at that time, specifying a certain ship and date. It was because of this fact that those who did not make such provision are now left in the lurch. At the Cunard office it was said that this year was something unusual in the way of travel, and they thought the dispatch about stated the situation correctly. But they agreed with the other agents that no company would ever think of taking any man's money for accommodations that had been already sold to some one else. At the office of the North German Lloyd line the agent, Mr C. Theo. Guething, said he thought there was some truth in the dispatch. "It is the smart people who are stuck now, he said. "When they get their outward passage the agent advises them to secure their return passage. They think that the company will not refuse to take their money, and the conse quence is that when the time comes they are left without passage. At the office of the American Hamburg line it was said that the dispatch was entirely true. In regard to the report concerning the high prices paid for accommodations, the agent said that sometimes whdh the demand warranted it, the officers cabins were sold for big prides. LIKE HER LOOKS BETTER. Shamrock Makes a Different Appearance With Her Spars In, and is Like'y to be a Dangerous Competitor. NEW YORK, Aug 28 The Shamrocks greatly improved appearance as she now rests in the water under the weight of her steel mast, boom, bowsprit and standing rigging has made its impression on the yachtsmen who are betting on the cup races. A slight reaction set in Saturday, and the indications are that the Irish yachts admirers will not meet the odds that prevailed at the maritime exchange last week. Those whose first impression of the cutter, which was received while she was in her homely ketch rig or was dismantled, was unflattering to the cup hunter, have changed their opinion. Today Shamrock is nearer her true lines than she has been in American waters. Her bowsprits weight has brought down her head, and its graceful taper has emphasized her length and brought out some points in a more favorable light. The high free board is not so noticeable, of course, and the sheer shows more of a curve. The dumpy stern has changed for the better. To the Columbias partisans the Irish sloop still suffers in the point of beauty from her higher topsides, straighter sheer and the cut of bow and stern. On the other hand, the yachtsmen who could see the elements of beauty and could distinguish line lines one week ago now regard Shamrock as a handsome boat. They are more jealous in their partisanship than before. The green painted racing machine is freely acknowledged on all sides to be the most dangerous competitor for the 'ossession of the America cup that English skill has evolved, fne Shamrock has now been lying at the new pier for a week, and the employes at the Erie basin, many of them good judges of a yachts capabilities, are practically unanimous in their undisguised admiration of the challenger. While the work of stepping the mast was hld in abeyance, the Shamrock's topsides were polished and rubbed with the care that is taken by experienced grooms with a thoroughbred. Ever since tne riggers began work men have hung over her guardrails rubbing her topsides with pumice stones; others In small boats and rafts have been doing the same work down her freeboard, under her bow and counter and touch-it g up the rough places with paint From ail appearances the big single sticker is to be put in as good, trim as is possible outsida of a drydock"for the preliminary spins that will follow the srrival of Sir Thomas Lipton and Will Fife Jr. The docking will follow later after the crew ard the bkippers have had an opportunity to try the cup course outside. QUINCY. In court this morning, Frederick Cornish of Quincy was held for trial until Wear esday, on the charge of assault with a dangerous weapon on Edward Tyburn. Cornish, it is alleged, struck Tyburn on the head with an ax during an argument at Atlantic yesterday, inflicting a serious wound. An electric car slipped its brake in the station yard last night and started down the incline toward the square at a rapid pace. There was no motormao or conductor aboard and the few passengers received qaite a fright. They kept their seats, however, and the car was stopped before any damage was don by a railway employe, who jumped aboard and put on the brake; in Recruiting for Regiment Begins With Rush.

Many of the Boston fishermen which-took ice. also bait, Wednesday and Thursday last were moored at T wharf this morning, many of them with good trips. Beside the 11 trawlers, there were four trips of swordfish, which, when rounded up, numbered 102 fish. They sold for KHi cents a pound. Schooner Albert W Black had 57 fish, Edna Perry 33. Maud. 6. 41 and Georgie Willard 9. All this catch would aggregate in round numbers 27,000 pounds. $3300 or more being paid for the catch. Considering the size of the vessels and the short time they had to make their catch. Capt Dexter Malone of the Mat-takeesett, Capt Joseph Mosquita of the Mary P. Mosquita and the skipper of the Caviare will make a remarkable stock, probably over $3300 in all. The most interesting trip of the day was that of the schooner Edith M. Conley, which brought in 38 barrels of prime fresh mackerel, caught on eastern Jeffries bank, and proved very good property, aa hundred of local dealers have standing orders with the dealers to ship on arrival mackerel of good quality.
