BRIDGE A RELIEF FOR MANY The WUllatcsburg BridK- had its patrons. Bsrahetfifid pedestrians tramped onto the bridge both from the TKww York and the Brooklyn ends ■ad those who promenaded out over the river found th* relief they sought, for it was cool and refreshing there. . In Battery Park it is estimated that 3.500 persons slept under the trees and on the grass. Extra policemen from the Church street station were on hand to preserve the peace. In Jeannette Park, at Coenties Slip, five hundred persons slept under the protection of six patrolmen from the Old Slip station. It was tho same tn Rutgers Park, where one thousand persons spent the night. In the William 11. Seward park, the heart of the crowded district, it Is estimated that six thousand persons, many of them women and children, spent the night under the stars. The Duane Street park and the little grassplot at the foot of V-st Canal street each received their share of outdoor sleepers. The sleepers in the downtown parks were excited early In the evening by a rumor that the police bad received one thousand pillows for their use. and that at any minute policemen with pillows might appear. This rumor started because Captain McNally. of the Church street station, received a letter from Charles E. Meyers, of Flanders. X. V., offering him a load of clover hay with which to stuff pillows for the use of those who slept In the parks. It could not be learned whether Captain McNally had accepted Meyers's offer. BEACH SAND BED FOR 20.000. Captain Harklns. of the Coney Island police, estimated that twenty thousand slept on the beach. A special detail of one hundred policemen was sent to the shore by Captain Harkins to protect the sleepers. The site of the Boer I War spectacle at Brighton Beach was black with people. One of the policemen on duty there, who had Just returned from ) San Francisco, said the people were huddled together i more thickly than the seals off the Cliff House. Magistrate Moss, in the Essex Market court, | mopped his brow continually yesterday, and j prisoners brought before him got off with easy punishment. "Its too hot to commit any one to prison for a trivial offence," he said. "Unless the offence is serious I will refuse to commit any one to those stuffy, ill ventilated cells." Many immigrants who came from Ellis Island yesterday were wholly unprepared for the hot f wave. The greater part of those who arrived wore heavy clothing and cumbersome boots and shoes. In many Instances a number of Russians were eeen to pass through the gate with big overcoats trimmed with fur. The ten curb brokers who* absolutely refused • to desert the street despite the heat were cheered jas heroes. Tom Marsalis. repreesnting •J. Thomas Reinhardt on the curb, wore about his neck a rope, to which was attached a thermome!l ter about three feet long. He stood in the sun and the thermometer ran up to 10G degrees. When darkness came the tenement houses of the East Side were emptied, and sidewalks and II streets became living apartments. Many of the lower East Side streets were almost impassable. There was a great crowd on the airy roof I gardens of the Educational Alliance, at East j Broadway and Jefferson street, and the University Settlement, at Eldrldge and Rivington streets. Adults were admitted to these roof | gardens, and children only when accompanied I by their elders. The crowd came early and remained until they were dismissed to the streets, shortly before midnight. . After treating nine sufferers from the weather Dr. Campbell, the head house surgeon at the I Harlem Hospital, fell i victim to the excessive heat last right. He was treated to an ice bath and the other remedies prescribed for such sufferers. He was able to sit on the veranda an hour later. The dead in the metropolitan district and those prostrated by heat in Manhattan and The Bronx were: THE DEAD. ALBRECHT, Bernard. 41 year* old, of No. 23 East 9Cth street; died at Harlem Hospital.

A Perfectly Digested Brtakfaat Make* Nerve Farce Tor the Kay. Everything goes wrong if the breakfast lies in your stomach like a mud pie. What you cat does harm if you can't digest it— it turns to poison. A bright lady teacher found this to be true, even of an ordinary light breakfast of cg-gs and toast. She says: "Two years ago I contracted a very annoying form of indigestion. My stomach, was in such condition that a simple breakfast of fruit, toast and egg gave me groat distress. 'I was slow to b-iieve that trouble could come from such a simple diet, but finally had to give it up. an--! found a great change upon a cup of hot Postum and Grape-Xuts with cream, for my r.-.orriij.R meaL For more than a year I have h«i-i to this course and have not suffered exoam when Injudiciously varying my diet. "I have been a teacher for several years and find that my easily digested breakfast means a savlug of nervous force for the entire day.

Harrisburg, Perm., Aug. (5. — A terrific wind and rain storm struck Harrisburg late to-day, instantly killing Charles M. Richwine and Chic Befrandi and slightly injui-ing several employes of Pawnee Bill's Wild West Show. Richwine was a Pennsylvania Railroad brakeman and was struck by lightning while standing under a tree near the show grounds. Befrandi, a Japanese acrobat, who sought shelter under a tent, was struck by lightning and died in- Ftantly. Several women in the main tent fainted from fright and were taken to houses near the show grounds. When the hurricane struck the persons on the seats stampeded for shelter. Several were knocked rtown, a number fell from high sf^ats, and others were badly crushed. ?Io one was seriously injured, however. The audience had hardly got away when the horse tent fell with a crash, killing a broncho. Three feet of water in the Market street sub* way blocked streetcar traffic for an hour. TO INVESTIGATE ICE. Judge Rosalsky Charges August Grand Jury with Task. Judge Otto Rosalsky. in charging the August Grand Jury in Part I of the Court of General Sessions yesterday, called their especial attention to alleged exorbitant prices or lee in this city, and instructed the jury to investigate the charge that there existed a criminal conspiracy to increase the price of ice. District Attorney Jerome stated that his office had thoroughly Investigated the Ice situation in the last few weeks, and that arrangements have been made for the appearance of several witnesses before the grand jury when the Ice situation is taken up tomorrow. The District Attorney has publicly declared heretofore that the question was one for the Attorney General. It further became known yesterday that the Information presented to Judge Kofcalsky. upon which he bused his charge to the Jury, was furnished by Attorney General Mayer, who Is himself investigating the ice situation. Judge Rosalsky said in his address to the grand jury: I deem it my duty at this time to call your attention to a mibjeet which Is now engaging the public mind and which has been discussed in the Board of Aldermen, resulting in the presentation of a resolution demanding that an Investigation be made whether a criminal conspiracy exists among those who supply a commodity which, particularly at this heated term. In of prime necessity and Indispensable for the health and comfort of the neople: a conspiracy la unduly Increase the price of this commodity, to limit its supply or to commit an art Injurious to the public health or to trade or commerce. This conspiracy, if it exist*. strikes most forcibly at the weak, Hie ailing, the sick, the very younir in our community, and most deeply affeota that portion of our population which haa t'nc smallest Jnootiie and therefore requires your prompt and vigorous attention. District Attorney Jerome said yesterday that he had learned from the Investigation by his assistants that there may be an See famine before the end of thts montw. "It has bt-cu si.owii to me." he said, "&at stocks NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. TUESDAY. AT y GT T ST 7. 1906.

Continuing, the District Attorney said: But if there are any criminal acts connected jrtth this increase of the price of ice. it Is the duty of the authorities to Investigate, and it Is on that around that this office has been proceeding during the last few weeks. A copy of the resolutions recently passed by the Board of Aldermen, asking the District Attorneys of the several counties in this city to Investigate the charges of a conspirscy to raise the prjeeof Ice. was served yesterday on District Attorney John F. Clarke of Kings County. He l£?ni!Md to take Immediate action, and to lay before the grand Jury, which will reconvene on September VK whatever facts he may obtain. U'.IITIXG ALIEXS KG AST. Effort To Be Made to Stop EBk Island Sunday Closing. Nearly flve thousand immigrants— the capacity of the Immigration Bureau— were landed at Ellis Island yesterday. The excessive heat made the wheels of examination turn slowly. The entire force at the Island were kept busy throughout the day. and the fatigue of the immigrants after spending a day and a night in the sultry steerage compartment of a steamer tied up to her pier did not add to the speed in passing through the various channels of the immigration examination. The work would have been an easy task had Ellis Island been open Sunday. The congestion of yesVerday was due to the new rule of the Department of Commerce and Labor to close the local immigration bureau Sundays through August. September and October. For some time a war has been smouldering between the immigration officials and the various steamship companies. Both have advanced reasons for and against the Sunday closing of the island, but thus far the immigrants have been the sufferers. When Ellis Island opened yesterday there were 4,267 immigrants in port ready to be passed. Before noon this number was increased by 2,648 aliens, who will have to remain aboard ship until to-day. The Sicilian Prince, from Mediterranean ports, anchored off Quarantine yesterday, that the immigrants might be comfortable in the meagre breeze of the Lower Bay. The haggard laces of the immigrants and the almost physical collapse of many women and children as they left the hot holds of the ships yesterday proved the contention of the steamship companies that the Sunday holiday for the Immigration force means great hardship to immigrants. It was learned y t*U»rday "tK»t the at«*mahfo companies intend to carry the question to Washington if their protest through the local bureau brings no results. It was said yesterday at the Cunard Line office that the $2 a head tax on each alien was enough to maintain a sufficient force at Ellis Island to handle immigrants every day in the year. Herman Winter, of the North German Lloyd Line, said that solely from the point of view of humanity the steamship companies protested to the local bureau. He continued: While our piers in Hoboken are practically immune from fire, I consider it unsafe to keep immigrants housed aboard ship while the ship is at her pier. There is great danger of panic following a fire, when a horde of persons are confined in a small space. The steerage compartments are cool at sea because the ship ia under way, and plenty of fresh cool air circulates throughout the voyage. The conditions are reversed when the ship is in port. The humidity and heat of the waterfront and the additional heat from the flrerooms make life miserable for hundreds of persons who are unable to hotter their plight. Furthermore, there is no reason why the inspectors should not work on Sunday. There are days at Kills Island when there is practically nothing to do. Why not give the employee a day off when business is dull? They know when a rush is coming and should provide for it. If it is fair for the immigration inspectors to take Sunday off It is fair also for the customs inspectors to stay away on Sunday and hold the first and second cabin passengers aboard ship until they have time to examine the baggage on Monday. YOUNG GIBL CRAZED SY HEAT Her Engagement Broken, She Wanders About Till Nearly Prostrated. Miss Julia F. Bergin. daughter of Connls Bergin, a retired caterer, of No. 408 West 33d street, was found by the police yesterday wandering about the upper West Side, weeping and wringing her hands. Patrolman Francis B. Hughes took her to the West 47th strwt station. There she wept bitterly, tore her hair and cried out: '•Oh! they've taken him from me. They won't let me marry him!" An ambulance was summoned, and the young woman was taken to Roosevelt Hospital. There it was found she was suffering; from incipient demantla. nervousness and heat prostration. It is feared she may become a raving: maniac. Investigation showed that th«- young woman was to have be*n married on Sunday night to a man named Charles McQuaid, but her father had forbidden the marriage, and she. having promised her mother on her deathbed that she would stick to her father, gave in. The banns hail already been published three time*, and the wedding ceremony was to have been performed at St. Michael's Church on Sunday night. A few days ago the young woman returned her engagement ring. Two weeks ago McQuaid drew $3W> out of a bank and furnished a flat in Brooklyn. HEAT KILLS MAN ON ERRAND OF JOY. Had Gone to Tell Minister of Stay of Execu. tion of His Son. Overcome by heat Herman Wenzel, sixty-two years old. fell off the porch at the home of the Rev. Herman E. Schnatx. in Bushwlck avenue. Wllllamsburg, yesterday afternoon, fractured his skull and diel almost instantly. The old man's eon, John Wensel. was to have been electrocuted at Sing Sing yesterday for the murder of George Statr. a bartender, on May ti last, but Governor Hlggins, on the petition of many of the old man's friends, granted a stay of thirty days last Saturday. The old man got the news early yesterday morning, and afterward started from his home to share his Joy with the Rev. Mr. Schnatz. The latter was not at home, and the old man sat down on the porch to wait until he came. HEAT VICTIM FALLS INTO LAKE.
