o IDGAL W YARD HOPES TO SECURE BATTLESHIP. THE SIEGE OF THE SHADE TREES. MISCELLANEOUS. MISCELLANEOUS. - Splendid Equipment Here Makes Experts Believe Brooklyn Will Be Chosen. the Brooklyn daily eagle. ! new york. sunday. july 6. 1002. OFFICERS ON THEIR METTLE. 'Inclined to - Resent Insinuations as to Their Ability to Turn Out Best Fighting Machine. , Although there has been no hint of the .policy of the administration in placing the battleship which is to be built at a govern ment Navy Yard, it is confidently expected jin local naval circles that the big contract Will be awarded to the Brooklyn yard. The argument of the officers is based entirely on :the superior capacity of this yard to meet the difficult task of building the great warship and It is believed that If the real merit of the yards is the deciding factor it cannot Well go to any other place. , It is expected that the decision will not ite made for at least three or four months. Every detail which will enter into the work of constructing the ship will be considered by. Secretary Moody and the comparison of ,the advantages of each plant will be fairly considered. There Is bound to be dissatisfaction no matter which yard is given the .work, and it is for the purpose of giving each a fair that care will be taken in the selection. After the decision 'Is made several months will be required to put the yard selected into condition and for this purpose $175,000 will be expended. A conservative estimate Is that the actual work of laying the keel , will not be begun before iiext spring. The officers at the Navy Yard are resenting the remarks which, during the debates in Congress, were made concerning their ability to carry on the work. There was a tinge of asperity In all of these statements , .and the officers think that they are not entirely justified. In view of the fact, they say, that nearly all of the big shipbuilders are ex - navy men and that the men who have built the best battleships afloat for private 'Bealers received their experience in the Navy it seems rather one sided to Infer that there are no good men left in the Navy. All of the work which is done in the private yards Is done under the supervision and with the approval of naval officers who are designated to represent the government and to see that the work is as good as Is contracted Sor. Commander J. A. B. Smith, chief of the iengineering department, will have charge of - all of the machinery for the battleship if the contract comes here. Ho is considered one iof the most efficient engineers in the Navy, and for several years superintended all of the work done in the Baltimore yards. While there he built several ships, including the Montgomery, which is a model of her class. Naval Constructor Washington L. Capps will have charge of the outside construction work. He will be in direct charge of the larger part of the work. The .references In Congress seem not to have taken this officer 'into consideration. It was he who was sent to the Philippines, shortly after the great battle, to inspect the ships! of Dewey's fleet .and to take entire charge of any needed repairs. He' was selected because he was the most efficient constructor. Building a ship, it is thought, could be very safely left in his hands. The entire personnel of the yard, in fact, is of the very best men of the entire Navy 'or of the entire expert force of this country. It is doubtful if there is another institution which could afford as skilled a line of offi - 'cers as is here ready to begin the work. The enormity of the task imposed by the building of a battleship is not realized by others than the experts. The battleship which Congress has voted shall be built in a government yard Is to be a 15,000 ton vessel, larger than any government ship now afloat. She will be the very latest in every .particular that modern science can devise. It is expected that she will cost over four millions, of dollars and that it will take at least three years to complete hor. The amount of money to be spent and the number of men to be employed will be about half as large as required for the construction of the new bridge over the East River. These facts do not at all disconcert the fovernment officials. They are confident that with the magnificent plants furnished them at the vard they will be able to handle the work without being compromised. The steam engineering plant is said to be the largest in this country. It is nearly new, having been rebuilt in 1900, after the big Are which completely destroyed the old plant. The machinery is not, therefore, at all weakened by use. As it stands the plant is entirely equipped for the big work, and it will not be necessary to purchase any other machinery than a few small turns and lathes. The plant has one - third more tools and nearly a half more foundries and pattern shops than has any other government yard along the seaboard. The construction department is as well provided for the work, with ten shops and hundreds of pieces of machinery. The Brooklyn yard also has the advantage of position, which is no small factor in the problem of building the ship. The yard is near the source of all supplies, and the material for the ship can be transported to the .yard more quickly and more cheaply than it .could be carried to any other navy yard. ; The water front is within a few minutes of the largest markets of the world and the method of carrying all kinds of material through the yard by means of the railroad system is expeditious and cheap. In the discussions which have been carried on for the past week concerning the relative merits of the yards to undertake the work of building the battleship, the Norfolk yard has been most frequently mentioned as the chief rival of the one here. Naval officers say that this argument shows an ignorance of the existing conditions, for they say the i Southern yard has not sufficient water to ;take care of a battleship. It is said that a ("battleship has not been in the Norfolk yard for several years and that it would he folly to build a ship there now, for the government would have more trouble in launching lit, they say, than Robinson Crusoe had in getting his craft into the deep. The ways at the local yards are admirably adapted to the requirements and there is sufficient water to launch any vessel yet suggested for our navy. The one particular factor that is expected to give the greatest amount of annoyance to the government, wherever the ship is built is the matter of labor. The government will be handicapped by this from the very first and the expense which will be added by the fact that the government employes are given fifteen days' vacation will be a pretty sun). But barring strikes and accidents the officers say that they will be able to account for their time as well as any builder can. The officers are confident that they will meet with the most strenuous opposition from the private contractors from the very first. These big builders are not going to allow their reputation to be tarnished or their prestige to be shaken for a little thing like a battleship. If they can do anything j to embarrass the government it Is expected ! thoy will do it. It is obvious that they can easily combine to force up the price of the material and In this way add greatly to the cost of the vessel. CHRISTIAN DRUMMERS MEET. Cedar Rapids, Iowa, July 5 Nearly 200 traveling men, representing many states, were present to - day when President S. E. Hill of Belolt, Wis., called the national convention of Gideons to order. The reports of officers show a gratifying growth of the order, which is an association of Christian traveling men. The report of Secretary J. H. Nicholson of Janesville, Wis., gave the total membership as 2,166 In thirty - eight States. iTOUNg CATERPILLAR AND MALE. MOTH AT BROOKLYN trees are fast becoming defoliated of their verdure by the voracious caterpillar of the white marked tussock moth. The young caterpillars are seen on almost every tree, hanging by their silken threads, and the adults have become familiar objects to every one as they crawl over the pavements, on stoops and on the sides of houses. The front of a frame house on Vernon avenue was so completely taken possession of that it looked like a yellow speckled house, and it was only by the aid of the thrifty housekeeper and the use of long brooms that these caterpillars were finally swept from their places. Their cocoons are being spun in every conceivable place, and mark a conspicuous feature in their lives.' The door to a house on Clifton place is thickly surrounded by their thin cocoons, giving it a very odd appearance. On account of the depredations caused by this insect. It becomes interesting to know something about its habitsand life history; as well, the remedies to check its proliilc - ness. The adult caterpillar measures about one and one - half to two inches in length, and is an exceedingly beautiful larva. It is ot a bright yellow color, with a black band running from four white, brush - like tufts to the extremity of its body, and on its back behind these are two little red retractile MUST KEEP HIS CONTRACT. George S. Woolsey Enjoined From Start ing a Distillery "Within 1,200 Miles of Chicago. An opinion was handed down yesterday by Judge Lacombe in the United States Circuit Court, Manhattan, in an action brought by the Standard Distilling and Distributing Company against George S. Woolsey, the Hammond Distilling Company and the Man hattan Trust Company, wherein an injunc tion asked by the plaintiff against the Hammond Company is refused, but granted as against Woolsey and the trust company. In 1898, Woolsey was the principal stock holder in the Interstate Distilling Company of Indiana. Joseph B. Greenhut, in organizing the Standard Company, purchased Woolsey's interest in the Interstate Com pany. By tho tprms of the contract, made HARVEST W&rs THE. HE.RO OF. THE FOURTH. ytt - irSr REST BY THE RECENTLY VACATED COCOON. elevations. Its head Is a coral red. and has two long black plumes or pencil - like hairs extending over it. A single one is at the opposite extremity of the body. The juvenile larva is a hungry fellow, and seems never to be satisfied until the adult stage is reached, when its appetite ceases and It shrinks up for pupation. Having passed about a month in the caterpillar stage, the larvae seek some suitable place, where they spin their cocoons, interweaving their hair with silken threads produced from an organ situated near the mouth. In about twelve days after the change to the chrysalis the last transformation takes place, at which time the adult insect emerges, either a wingless female of a light, uniform gray color and rudimentary wings or a male, with feather - like antennae, ashen gray wings, slender body, with rows of little tufts along the back and of a stone - gray color, marked with several shades of grayish white. The female rests upon the outside of the cocoon, and pairing soon takes place. The eggs are then laid in masses of several hundred on top of the cocoon and covered with a large quantity of white, frothy matter, which, on drying, becomes very brittle. The female, after performing this function, dies and drops to the ground. The eggs arc not hatched till the following summer. . in June, 189S. Woolsey was to receive stock in the Standard Company In payment for his 2,200 shares in the Interstate Company. The shares were to be deposited with the Manhattan Trust Company, and a certain number paid to Woolsey annually. This was done in order to insure Woolsey's compliance with the terms of his contract made with Joseph Greenhut that he would not engage in the distilling business within 1.20O miles of Chicago for a specified number ot years. In W01 the Hammond Company was organized, with Woolsey as its president. The Standard Company sought to restrain Woolsey and the Hammond Company, alleging the two were identical, from engaging in the distilling business, representing that it was a direct violation of the 1898 contract between Greenhut and Woolsey. An injunction was also asked restraining the Manhattan Company from delivering any of the Standard stock to Woolsey, on the ground he had violated his contract, and was engaged in distilling within 1,200 miles of Chicago. In his opinion, Judge Lacombe says: "The injunction to enjoin the Hammond Distilling Ctnpauy is denied. That company has not voluntarily appeared; this is A LEAF BEING EATEN BY A 1 .mmtonunun' There are several satisfactory remedies for destroying this pest and its eggs. The removing of the egg masses is certainly the best means for extermination. In 18D4 the school children of Rochester, N. Y., were given prizes for the greatest number of egg masses collected, and this was followed by excellent results. One must be very careful when gathering the egg masses not to destroy cocoons not bearing egg masses and to leave cocoons not the district of Its residence, and this court has not any Jurisdiction of it. As to Woolsey the case seems entirely plain. There is no substantia! dispute as to the facts, and complainant may take an Injunction pendente lite, restraining him from violating the terms of his contract of June 29, 1898. The trust company is also enjoined from delivering the stock to Woolsey or to his - j order, without further Instructions from this court." CELEBRATED ON PHILADELPHIA. The American Line steamer Philadelphia, which arrived yesterday from Southampton and Cherbourg, celebrated the Fourth of July with athletic sports, firing a national salute and concerts In the afternoon and evening.

TRY TO BREAK IL STRIKE Activity About Mines Appears to Be the Result of Preconcerted Plan. MINERS PREPARING FOR FRAY. To Oppose Operators'" Intentions Union Leader Will Augment Picket Forces at Every Point. Wllkesbarre, Pa., July 5 The movement of empty coal cars along the railroads and the unusual activity about several of the collieries in the region indicate to the strikers that an effort Is to be made in a few days to start work at some of the collieries. The operators assert that they have suf flcient men under engagement, both re turned strikers and Imported men, to man several of the collieries. While they will not admit that work may be resumed next week, there is a general belief that the effort will be made. In the Hazleton region the Pardees expect to mass men at the Harwood colliery which, being on the outskirts of tho region, Is in less danger of attack than a mine in the heart of the district, and the coal can be shipped from it without being sent past any mining village. A number of miners are said ta have applied for work in response to the notice of the company that it was ready to receive applications. In the Wyoming region all indications polut to a resumption of work at the Nan - tlcoke No. 5 colliery of the Susquehanna Coal Company. Th'is mine Is situated at the edge of the Wyoming basin and its output goes over the Pennsylvania Railroad. It is also stated that from the Wyoming division mines of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Company one colliery will be selected at which work is to he started. The officials say enough miners ot the division have asked for work to man a colliery. Some empty coal cars were to - day placed on sidings near a couple of these collieries and there is a bustle about the workings which indicates that some move is about to be made. The Delaware and Hudson and the Lehigh Valley Companies are also busy with preparations which make it appear as if at a time understood by the operators each company will try to break the strike. Officials of the union, cognizant of what is being done, are busy. Pickets are watching the mines, and all moves are reported to headquarters, and If any effort is made to gather men the strikers will endeavor by large picket committees to see them before they go to work and dissuade them. In the Hazleton region they turned back many this morning, an especially strong picket line be ing established about the Drlfton colliery of the Coxe Bros. & Company., where the building of a strong barbed wire stockade, backed with barricades yesterday, lends color to the belief that an effort is to be made there to resume work. DYNAMITE UNDER MINER'S HOUSE Blairsvllle, Pa., July 5 Tho coal strike at Black Lick Station, on the Indiana Branch Railroad, is growing more intense. Stones have been thrown at the men at work in the Graff mine, and dynamite was placed under the house of Thomas Palmer, one of those who has kept on working. All the window glass was broken and the house got great shakeup. THREATEN LYNCHING IN DAKOTA. St. Paul. Minn., July 5 A Pierre, S.

AN INSTITUTION OF NOTE. J Principal's Life Devoted to an Elemen - tary School "Whose Results Are i Historical. Leonard Dunkly, who for over fifty years held the principalship of Public School No. 16, on Wilson street, between Lee and Bedford avenues. Williunisburgh, is a unique figure In tho educational life of the Borough of Brooklyn. Thousands of Brooklyn people have at one time or another been pupils in the school over which he exercises the duties of principal, and not a few have attained prominence in the social, business and civic life of the city. Among those who have received instruction under Mr. Dunkly have been former Mayor Wurster of Brooklyn, former Fire Commissioner William Cullen Bryant, Joseph Boston, the artist, and others whose names arc equally as promiuent. When Leonard Dunkly left the City of New York in the early fifties to assume the position of assistant principal in Public School No. 16, Wlliamsburgh had Just been annexed to the City of Brooklyn. Since his connection with that school as principal he has seen the City of Brooklyn gradually spread out, annexing the surrounding towns of Bushwlck and East New York. He now leaves the school when the City of Brooklyn has been swallowed up in the Greater City of New York. He entered upon his duties as principal of a school in a city of some 30,000 persons and he is preparing to leave the same school when it has become a part, a prominent part, of the educational system of a city of over three and a half millions. What is true of the city is true with even creator force of the school system itself, fllthouch the changes in the system have not been as noticeable, probably, in No. 16 as In other schools. This is true mainly because of the determination of Mr. Dunkly not to. allow any innovations in his school until thev had been found to be practicable. When experiments were to be tried, it was never No. 16 that was compelled to suffer from the experiment. The school was never dependent upon old customs, nor was it ior ward in adopting the new. The school when Leonard Dunkly took charge of it with the determination to make it the best in the city, was far more re stricted in its influence than the schools of to - day and the system knew none oi tne many departments which are an integral part of It to - day. Throughout tho fifty years of Mr. Dunkly's connection with No. 16 it has slowly expanded. About thirteen years asu a large addition was made to the building on Wilson street, but few changes were made in the curriculum of the school. To - day Public School No. 16 Is without a kindergarten and the pupils of the school are still taught "hair - line" writing, in spite of the fact that the former are now being placed in many schools while the latter has given way to vertical hand - writing. During his career as a principal one thought was always uppermost' in his mind. That was to make the school of which he had been placed in charge the greatest school in the whole system. According to Dr. William H. Maxwell, city superintendent of schools Leonard Dunkly was successful. Public School No. 16 was known throughout Brooklyn as the best school In the old city and since consolidation it has held its own with the best in Manhattan. The idea upon which he based much ot his actions was that it was best to do one thing well before undertaking another. It was this determination which kept him in Public School No. 16 for so many years and offers of larger salaries, high and prominent positions in Brooklyn and other cities failed to shako his determination. Had he so wished he could have been made assistant superintendent of the Brooklyn schools at a time when such' a position was a certain stepping stone to the higher position of superintendent. However, No. 16 had not at that time attained the high position which he had determined that it should and hence he could not bring himself to ac cept any other position. He received many flattering offers from private institutions, but, to all ho turned a deaf ear. He believed that he had a work to do in the local schools and until It had been accomplished he refused to leave his position in the Eastern District school. During the half century of his connection with No. 16 his health was of the best, and he was away from school but ten days in the fifty years. One trait In his character which is particularly noticeable is his mod esty. He hates notoriety, and as a result No. 16 never figured prominently in tho papers. When It did, it was in connection with some Incident not associated with the regular school work. The fact of his seek ing retirement would have been withheld from the papers had he had his wish. The old first class of Public School No. 16 has furnished more notoriety to the school, probably, than anything else. The class has held a meeting every year since its graduation, ard now, as the school is about to lose its faithful leader, the suggestion of a dinner to Principal Dunkly was heartily indorsed. The promoters of tho affair reckoned without their host, for the principal retained his position of disciplinarian over his former pupils by refusing to attend. Modesty had conquered once again, and the dinner had to be called off. Graduates of the Wilson street school were always proud to be known as such, and It was always a pleasure to the principal to have the boys and girls return to the school to renew old friendships. Teachers who had given them their first start in learning have been missing, but the principal was still at his post. If the measure of a teacher's success is tho number of children ho has developed into good citizens, Mr. Dunkly is one of the greatest of modern educators. Three generations have felt the Impulse of his work, and probably no greater tribute to the sterling worth of tho principal could be found than that fathers and mothers wished their j sons to from the school from which they had received their education, while the grandfathers and grandmothers were proud to have it known that the young man who was their principal was still in harness and was the principal of the school in which their grandchildren were studying. Of few principals can it Ik - said that they have seen three generations pass through their school. Memory seldom failed Mr. Dunkly. and a name once recalled was and is still the means of bringing for the principal tho story of the career of all of the members of the family who passed throughm the school. To the school children the principal was known as Pop Dunkly, and the name was always spoken with esteem and often with awe. To the little boyB in tho lower classes the principal was a big man. indeed, and a person of whom they stood in awe: but to the hopeful graduate he was a friend and helper, sharing the pleasure of success and making the failure more easy to bear. Although Mr. Dunkly will now cease to be connected with the school In an official capacity, he will still maintain an active interest in the institution which he has' done so much to make famous In local educational circles. With the retirement of Mr. Dunkly, Brooklyn bids goodby to one of its oldest and most successful principals, whose life was devoted to the development of the model school whnch has genius had created. DEATH OF ADA GRAY. The Noted Actress Passes Away After an Illness of Several Years. Many thousands of people no doubt remember Ada Gray, noted actress who made the play "East Lynne." famous In every corner of this country and in England. Since 1892, she was Mrs. Charles F. Tingay In private life, and her home was in Brooklyn, where she died yesterday after a long illness from cancer of the stomach. Ada Gray was born in Boston, Mass., fifty - two years ago, and was not 11 years old when she saw here first play. Her father a journeyman mason, had died a few years before and left his family In poor circumstances. So, at the age of fourteen, little Ada finding a. chance to earn a small sum ot money each night at the Boston Museum gladly accepted It and appeared with the "supes," from which grade she was soon promoted to "utility" business. In this she proved very useful to the management. The play in which sua made her first appearance was "The Hunchback." At sixteen she was playing principal characters. She went to Ben DeBar's Theater, St. Lous, as leading actress, and next to Louisville, wher she was acclaimed - "Louisville's favorite leading lady." Another member of this company was Kitty Blanchard, who afterward became famous as one of the most charming commedlennes of her day. From Louisville. Ada Gray went to the Trlble Opera House at Albahy, and a leading actress of the stock company there supported most of the great actors of til, late sixties, including the English artists, Charles Kean and Charles Dillon. In this,; stock company were Ada Rehnn, who playetf "utility" in those days and William J. Le - ;' moyne. Miss Gray's first husband was an - Albany hotel keeper. It was in 1SS3 that Ada Gray began to make "East Lynne" the principal play of her. repertory, and In ten years she appeared inr it nearly two thousand times. At one time she presented scarcely anything else. In 1894 she went to England, where she ap - epared in about a dozen matiness In Nottingham, Birmingham, Sheffield and Manchester. Illness put a stop to her tour, and she returned to this country to undergo an operation from which she never fully recovered. It was while she was tra - rcling in the West that William Jennings Bryan became a member of her company, and she told of that experience in the following words: "It was a dozen or fifteen years ago that the young man appeared with me for a season in the West. It was during the lifetime of my first husband. Charles Watklns, who was also my manager. I remember the shock it gave me when I saw Mr. Bryan face again as Presidential candidate. It was a big jump." Mr. Bryan appeared as Sir Francis Levison, In "East Lynne," according to Miss Gray. Of "East Lynne" Miss Gray always spoke as better than a sermon. "Yes," said Miss Gray, "I felt the truth of that curiosly out In Ohio a few years ago. A letter came to me at my hotel, in one of the large towns, one day from a man who' told rae that I had saved him from the blackest villainy. Ho had been ill in a hospital and nursed by a young woman who gave him her love the prelude to her ruin. He deserted her without a qualm. But 'East Lynne' converted him. Isabel's sad story so : wrought upon his mind that he returned and married the girl. So I've been a bit of a reformer In my way. "The history of 'East Lynne' performances would fill a book. I. am not an advocate of art and no feeling. I give myself up to my feelings so completely that I still cry when I play Lady Isabel. It is as real to me today as it ever was." One of the children who appeared as Lit - : tie Willie, the child, was Tommy Russell. ABOUT BROOKLYN PEOPLE.
