What You Want You Can Find It Here for Less ALL OF FIREPROOF MATERIAL. i JU Features of a Great Eesort for Which L Contracts Have Been Let by j Mr. Tiiyou. . Steeplechase, In Coney Island, Is to rh VAhiillt nn m mnvnlA.nnt atflla Pinna f asva . be a completed, some contracts let j and already .foundation work has begun I ' for the building of steel and concrete of j uuiuon uouar comDination amusement ( palace and pa-llion of fun on the Bite of the old steeplechase. It is believed that this enterprise marks the beginning of a new era in Coney Island, for It Is Probable that subsequent- construction '.n other parts of the island will be of iflreproof materials. The great fire in Steeplechase Park last July set Us ban upon all combustible amusetneit structures. Eleven yearc ago Mr. Tllyou started the Coney Island Steeplechase on an Investment of but 11.000. and from this Investment he now owns equities in other ' Cteeplechases ' and lands and Investments of approximately J5.000.000. The ' eecret of his success, he claims to be in the reduction to a minimum of the opt of the operation. it requires but few people to run Steeplechase Park, and visitors there are largely, though unconsciously, their own entertainers. ' Automatic contraptions and mechanical devices do the rest. Steeplechase business policy has, therefore, proven enormously profitable, and from the mother 1 plant at Coney Island has grown, tha Steeplechase at Rockaway Beach, Bridgeport, Conn., and Atlantic City. I A contract was let by Mr. Tllyou a few days ago to Lie P. J. Carlln Construction Company fo the construction of the pavilion of Fun. This will be 700 fetit long and 300 feet wide, and constructed f Steel and glass. It Is designed to contain the greatest aggregation of fun making devices ever gathered together In a similar area. The building of this pavilion will take precedence over the Pleasure Palace fronting on Surf avenue o as to facilitate the restoration of ' Steeplechase in all Its essential parts and attractions for the opening of the next season Though the Pavilion of Fun completed and equipped will cost $460,000 It will be the cesser part of the new Steeplechase scheme. The Palace of Pleasure, skirt-lag the front of the pavilion from the ' Bowery to Surf avenue, is designed to be the greatest creation ever Introduced I Inter an amusement resort. It Is to be i ...... . ontructea oi steel, eoncrete and glass f lit French renaissance style, all the ex terior surfaces being faced with cream v lazed terra cotta and the roofs with a moss green Spanish tile. Over the main Sn.rance. wnicn will De wide cnougn to l.ermit throe Mardl Gras processions to ' filter abreast, will be a central dome 135 et high with a rotunda 65 by 65 feet. It n cstimaiea that this palace without equipment will cost nearly $600,000. According to the plans, the main floor is to be about four feet above the street level, so as to permit an easy observation from Surf avenue of the merry life within. On the left, looking from Surf aenue, will bo tho great ball room, having a floor area of 40,000 square feet, surrounded by a 15-foot promenadj. In the 'center of the ball room is to be an Italian garden, surrounding a bronzy canopied bandstand, whence the music of lbs orchestra will be distributed in all directions. The tast wall is to be of mirror glass, giving the room the effect of vast spaciousness. 'The roof of the ball room will be of translucent glass, and a 15-foet bnlcony, extending around tho entire wall space, will scat thousands of spectators. Two balconies, 12 and 26 feet high, re-speetlvsly. extending around the interior of the rotunda, will offer splendid vantages of observation. At the right side of the rotunda, first floor, looking from Surf avenue, Is to be a palm garden cafe, 0x90 feet. On the second floor will be the observation restaurant, having a floor space of 70x100 feet. The three side walls of the restaurant, of movable glass sections, will offer a grind stand seet to all the amusements In the pavilion or other sights about. On tho third floor, on both -sides of the rotunda, provisions have been matlo for fifty sleeping rooms. This palace may not be completed du ring the coming year because of the magnitude of the enterprise, but Mr. Tiiyou has dttermlned that its building will not interfere In the least with the amusement features of Steeplechase. The unocctipicJ space where the Palace is to be located will be given to a county fair style of amuBemenls. . It Is In the Inner pavilion and on the beach and southwest of the pavilion where the real steeplechase features will be established next season. Around the .entire Interior of the pavilion will be a balcony 25 feet wide and 12 feet fiom the floor. On the Inner side of the balcony several rows of seats am to be provided for the accommodation of spectators; while In the glass wall side will be a raised automobile track, where the finest of the most popular makes of machines will speed. : One of the novel features of the pavilion is to be a great ball room stage, 200 feet by 50 feet, in the south end. with orchestra In front very much on the plan of the New York Hippodrome stage. A great improvement which Mr. Tiiyou has planned is a new race course for the Steeplechase horses. The course will be 3,100 feet long, against the 1,100 feet of the old course. . The best of the old attractions and the fun-making devices will be kept, but all these will be greatly Improved. Many new "seretmers" will be added. Among these are the Shoe Fly. the Pit, the Jungle, Human Niagara. Rope Bridge, th. Neptune Archimedes' Wonder, Job's Educator, etc. Patents have been secured or applied for by Mr. Tllyou on most of these now devices. One of the finest features of the new Steeplechase will be a decorated garden, 500 fcot long and 30 feet wide, between Tllyous Walk and the Pavilion. Other improvements to he carried out before next season opens are the building of 1,000 more bath houses (making 3.000 In all) adjacent the swimming pools and the conversion of the great airship tower into a water towe.-. containing 100,000 gallons of water. In addition to the i;reat board walk there will be many new attractions along the beach. From the western end of the front elevation will be the arcade eutrauce to the park. This Is specially designed for Y lbs accommodation of automobile and the roof of the arcade from Surf avenue to the pier, thence to the landing dock, irollcy cars will be run according to the plan operated last year. Steeplechase Park has an area of near- ly forty acres, which will be almost on-I , tlrely occupied this coming season by I amusement or recreative features of one pii sort or another. With Mr. Tllyou's steamboat lines and the nearness of the West End and Sea Beach terminals of the elevated lines from New York the facilities for reaching Steeplechase are excellent. But those will probably take a secondary place when the Fourth avenue subway Is constructed. The terminal of this great trl-borough transit artery will be almost directly in front of Steeplechase Park, entering the Island, as it will, through Stlllwell avenue and Fifteenth or Sixteenth street. QUEENS' FIRST LICENSE. Mr. Lengler and Miss Wiener Get Legal Consent to Wed. The first marriage license, required under the new law. issued in Queens Borough, was that of John Lengler of 145 Attorney street, Manhattan, and Miss Henrietta Wiener, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. Wiener of 437 Boulevard. Rock-away Beach, whose marriage will tako place on January 7, In tho Norfolk Street Synagogue, Manhattan, and will be followed by a reception at Clinton Hall. The license was Issued last Thursday. CARRIES $65,000 IN HIS SHIRT Jamaica Man, Whose Identity Withheld, Has Small Fortune Constantly on His Person. Is Burt Jay Humphrey, county judge of Queens, with a number of his friends, were gathered together in a Jamaica tobacconist shop yesterday, and the topic of conversation was the stringency of the money market. Some one remarked on tho prevalence of the hoarding habit among ull classes of people. "That reminds me," said the judge, "that there Is a man right here in Jamaica who keeps $65,000 in bills pinned Inside his shirt, for safekeeping." The eves of the men grouped around Judge Humphrey bulged out in amazement, and one remarked: 'Goodness. 1 wish some one would steal his shirt, and put that money in circula tion." The Judge was urged to tell the name of the man, or give some clew to his Identity, but steadfastly declined to do so. He said he knew all those present were honest, but feared that in some way some person unable to withstand temptation might learn of the fact should he tell who the man Is. "TOO MUCH DUTCH TALK." Albert Holloran Says His Mother-in-Law From Coney Island Disturbed Him at Home. "What seems to be the trouble?" asked Magistrate Cornell, when Albert Hollo-ran, a waiter, was arraigned before him In- Vorkville Court, yesterday, on the complaint of his wife. "It's a case of too much third party," replied the prisoner. "Who's the third party?" from the magistrate. "My molher-in-law," replied Holloran dispiritedly, as he pointed to a matronly woman who stood beside his wife. "What do you mean?" "Well, Judge," I'll explain," said Holloran, "I'm an Irishman and proud ot it. I married a German girl. I love my wife but I can't understand a word of German. Well, they gel lo jabbering together in Dutch and 1 can't stand it. I know my mother-in-law doesn't like me and I think she must be talking about me In Dutch." Here the mother-in-law. a Mrs. Fox. who Uvea at 2875 West Seventeenth street. Coney Island, broke in to say that she never talked about Holloran. Mrs. Holloran explained that she loved her husband, but that he had run away from her, Holloran said that he reciprocated his wife's affection but "can't stand the Dutch talk." Holloran lives at the Central Hotel, Third avenue and Fourteenth street, Manhattan. His wife lives with her mother. Holloran said he often makes $45 a week as a waiter. The complaint was changed from disorderly conduc t to abandonment, and as Holloran had no bondsman to guarantee that ho would pay his wife $10 a week he was taken to a cell until he finds a bondsman. Holloran's wife seemed loath to leave the court and brushed, away a tear as hp was taken to a cell. ' GLEN COVE COKPCBATIONS. (Special to the Eagle.) Glen Cove, L.

Iff"" EASILY 5251 A DAY Small Wonder, Then, That Prices on Winning Horses Are Shorter Year by Year. "KITTY" EATS UP PIKERS. Men With Small Bank Bolls, Doing Business at Kock Bottom Rates, Have No Chance. "Oh! the bookmaker always wins," Is a common expression among casual and regular racegoers alike. And usuaMy the are right. The bookmaker has to win, and win heavily, to make bare expenses. Just what It costs to run a bonk on one of the big metropolitan tracks Is something that the general public has only tho haziest idea of, and did the average patron of the tracks who always is protesting about "short prices" realize tho expense there would not be so many complaints. Careful of the actual legitimate expenses of a single big book that is, one run without iis owner being represented under severaV other names and by apparently independent layers brings out the total of upwards of nearly $230 a day. and that with nothing estimated for the layer's own time. .Many books cost far more than this, but the figures given are conservative ones. Summarized, these expenses are: f'flvfltifiKli liiforiuntlnii ...... 9 1 2.00 Mnf nleiinnee of unto liO.OO llHfleeM for crew :w.oo Interest nil "bank rol!"....,. 75.IMI Three lot-kern nt DUO.tMt. ; . . . :tMK! Sheet writer Ili.oo Cashier ir.OD Four "niitmidc' men -lo.OO Totill flMO.OO Every one of these items is put down at rock bottom figures, and if the truth were known it would be found that many book3 In the ring cost twice, and even three times, as much to run. But their expenses would not show as do those named In the table. Some, in fact, hardly would bear the light of publicity and so cannot be enumerated for want of actual proof of their having been Incurred. What Open King Means Now. In the very first Item, that of "Ca-vanagh information," there has been a cut within the last two years that has saved many a layer's bankroll from extinction. Time was when it cost $100 a day nt any track of consequence for I ho privilege of making book. Now, the only charge exacted by the associations Is In the form of "advance Information" of starters, weights, jockeys and corrections, furnished by the ring manager, John Cavanagh. This Is $2 a race, and the average racing .lay has only six events, so $12 is counted. Tho Information comes on b i 1 3 of tissue paper and the bookmakers get it perhaps flvo minutes before the public In the betting ring and ten or fifteen minutes before it is posted for ihe benefit of the patrons of the grandstand. It is a charge that none can dodge, and "Popular John" may be seen every day, after the first race, going from book to book, caahine "his one best bet." Advance Information, at the odds of $12 to nothing, usually, and sometimes $14 to nothing, when there, are seven races. Few bookmakers use the race trains these days, because of the greater safely and speed of the auto. "Safety" Is used In the sense of security tor the large sums of money carried. In a bonk of the size for which expenses are given, hardly less than $u0.000 actual cash is takeu to the course. As every one knows who has maintained an auto, even a modest one. $20 a day for gasoline, chauffeur's wages, wear and tear and in terest on cost, is a very moderate estimate Indeed. In fact there are many bookmakers who spend twice that. sum. when they come to count things up at the season's end. Now that the racing associations have eliminated the charge for the bookmak-Ing privilege and established the open ring, badges must bo bought for each and every one of tho layer's entourage. Complimentary badges given to politicians and members of the Legislature were bought and sold in groat numbers among the betting craft, but this 3eason all that was stopped and Mr. Bookie has to pay cash,. Interest on the bankroll is another item of importance. A big book must have on call $250,000 and many have twice or three times that sum immediately available. Much of this docs not draw interest, and Is In the nature of a "time loan" taken by the year and secured by stocks and bonds, much as 1b a stock broker's loan. Interest on $250,000 for a year at six per cent is $15,000, and as there are, say, 20u racing days, the cost of the money used Is easily $75 dally. What the Clockers Do. Nearly every book of importance has its clocking brigade, the men who watch the horses' trials and report their training gallops and give opinions on their fitness to race. The $10 a day given for each Is conservative, as high as $50 a day having been paid in the past for such work. There are three great training tracks to be covered. Gravesend, Sheepshead Bay and Belmont Park, though the latter Is not so important. The Belmont Park clocker therefore may be counted an "extra man," for ho is as likely to appear at Aqueduct or Jamaica or Brighton for a few days to watch some "good thing" being prepared under cover. Any good sheetwriter can command $12 a day, and many get $15 and $20. It is the same with cashiers, and In many instances, the latter have an Interest of some sort in the profits of the book. ' It is difficult to tell how many "outside" men a book employs, so diverse are the duties. They have the important task of "laying off" wagers, of keeping their employer posted as to big bets of "wise money." of gathering up paddock and clubhouse gossip, and of bringing In other layers' prices. There is ample work In a big book for four men and even six. There lire hundreds who yearly try their luck and pit their brains against the players with very small backing. These cheap books usually are co-operntlve affairs, every one employed having an interest in the bankroll, and "working as a nil partner without sulary. These are the majority of layers in the field in-elosure and along the back line, and their expenses are as nothing compared with the real books as pre their gains ex-iciit in rare instances. In these cheap books the Information costs the same, $12, as In the big books and the crew usually consists of four, hence $12 has to be paid for badges. One of the quartet will "hold the slate, ' or take in the bets: another will write sheet; the third handle the cash, and the fourth do Ihe "outside" work, gathering the odds from the big ring and "laying off" any bets that can bo advantageously. These little hooks handle the dollars and two dollars of tho "pikers," and naturally balk at taking a bet of more than $3 or $10, on anything but an odds-ou ohoice. "Kitty" Gets It All in the End. If each of the four members of Ihe syndicate gets $5 for his day's work, he lucky, averaging winning and losing days, and eventually the "kitty." or the association's share, as shown by the $12 daily for Information and $12 for badges, gets the bankroll. Still, because the big book makers look so prosperous, there are any number who try to emulate them, where one goes on and Is graduated into the real thing, hundreds fail and many try time and time again before they abandon the idea. It would be thought that with so many small fry playing, there would be en Infinite amount of "welching," or taking in the public's money and decamping during the running of the race. But this practice, so common on the English tracks, Is absolutely unknown on the American courses. Hundreds of thousands of dollars change hands daily and the percentage of loss is nil remarkable when compared with the banking business, for instance. Of course, there are individual bettors who fail to pay "markers." or credit bets, but the absconding bookmaker is absolutely unknown. Should a layer find himself short, the freemasonry of the ring will assure him of finding some one to make good tho deficiency at once, and the next day, or the same night, he "digs up" the amount of the loan. But hardly three times in the season does a layer even be threatened with the embarrassing question of solvency. The main reason for this rests in the supervision of John Cavanagh. the ring manager, to whom all applicants for bookmaking stands must apply. . Sometimes the privilege is refused and when the man of attenuated bankroll begins, there is a Cavanagh agent with a sharp eye on all his play. He Is not permitted to "overplay" himself: hence, he cannot fail to pay out. Thus, there Is no welching something distinctly American and distinctly the best point of the entire bookmaklng game.

December 28 The Sea Cliff Republican Club is one of Ihe most successful organizations this village has ever had.

MI CHURCH 58 YEARS OLD IN APRIL Anniversary to Be Celebrated in Connection With Conference Meeting. 300 MINISTERS TO ATTEND. Edifice Beautified in Anticipation .of j the Anniversary Long List of Famous Pastors. Place M. K. Church, corner of St. Felix street, is making extensive preparations to celebrate its fiftieth .'n-nlversary. This is to be observed In connection with 'he annual meeting of the New York East Conference, which will be held there in April, and over which Bishop William Burt of Italy, long a Brooklyn nastor, will preside. In anticipation of this anniversary and to celebralo Its fifty years of active life. Hanson Place Church being one of the most prominent In all Methodism, a largo I sum of money, collected without the) least fuss or trouble, has been spent Cur-1 The Hev. Dr. Charles Edward Locke. ing the ljst Tew months In beautifying the property. The interior has been ren ovated, so that it looVs like a new cdi fie, the exterior has been repainted and itcw carpets laid and furniture provueu. The 300 or more ministers who attend the meetings of will find everything at hand to make their stay in Urooklyn comfortable and tho homes of the people will be thrown open to them This Is the quadrennial meeting, when lay delegates will be elected to the central conference which meets in May, when a number of new bishops will be elected. The present pastor ot the church, the Rev. I)r. Charles Edward Locke, with a large and efficient committee, hns been at work for some time preparing the programme for the anniversary, nd I his programme will give place to addresses by former pastors, who Include a ton;' list of the lights ot Ihe denomination, and music of a high order. Laymen who are prominent In the history of Ihe church will also make addresses reviewing the history of the RO' icty and their connection with it. The Hanson Place Methodist Episcopal fhurch, its predecessor, the Dean Street M. K. Church, having failed, was organised May 26, 1857. Ar that Hire nine trustees were elected, John French, who khs long prominent, in civic life: Natlvin-'fl Bouncll, John V. Poller. .l-hn Pe.irce, Henjumin L. Cornell. Isaac Emhree. E. Ji-rrls and C. W. Webb. Plans 'vere at once made to pro'.ure means for the purchase of property and the erection of a church. Land was boughi at the corner of Hanson place and St. Eclix sireet. 75 feet on Hanson place by 120 feet on" St. Eclix street, for $5,0(10. and arrangements were at once mode io build. At this lime there were those who predicted failure, and withheld help which, under other circumstances, they might have rendered. Had It not been for the unwavering faith of the pastor, the Rev. Joseph Law, who was appointed In the following April as the regufar pastor, it is doubtful whether any further steps would have been taken until the financial storm had blown over. The cornerstone was laid by Bishop Janes on July 27, 1S57. The building progressed without further delay. The irus-tees were obliged to borrow money on their own responsibility to meet the payments to the builders. The edifice was ready for dedication on Sunday, January 3. 1868. Bishop Janes ofilelated in the morning, the Kev. Dr. John Kennedy in the afternoon and the Rev. J. L. Insklp In the evening. The opening prayer was offered by the Rev. Buel Ooodsell. then presiding elder, father of Bishop Daniel A. Goodsell. the former having a large Influence throughout, tho services of the day. The cost of the property, nt the Hmc of the dedication, was about $2,r).CW!. The subscriptions received that day were $1,800. and $5,000 had been previously subscribed. These amounts, together with a loan obtained on bond and mortgage, and a temporary loan of $5,000, nearly provided for the cost of the undertaking. The Sunday school was organized January 17, 1868. and It has always been n strong force In the work of the 'church, with men of influence as superintendents, nmoug them John En nch, Charles E. Tonic and William Harkness. The church has had n long line of prominent nnBlors. Following Joseph Law came the Rev, Dr. James H. Perry, appointed In 1850, who enlisted In tho Civil War and bcenmc colonel of the regiment known ss "Perry's Rain's." Colonel Perry was killed In battle. The Rev. Cyrus D. Eoss. afterward Bishop Foss, followed Colonel Perry, and during his pastorate the parsonage at 11 Hansin place was built. This has. within the last year, been give-i up.
