Week-End Gang Departed He's Trying to Recover. THE BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE. NEW YORK. MONDAY. .JULY 19. 1909. The apparent immunity which "Abe" Lewis enjoys from being arrested is a ourcc of surprise and wonderment to the peoplu of Brownsville. Judge Dike, in the County Court, last week ordered the ball bond forfeited and Issued a benej warrant for the recognized leader of what is left of the notorious "Kid" Twist gang, but Lewis walks in the streets unmolested. Lewis vows that he will never be tried before Judge Diku, and that statement Is emphasized by theiihcr members of the gang that they it wuuiu rusuri 10 ncspcraie measures oo-fl fore they would give Judge Dike an op-Mi nnrtnnitv to mptn nut trip law tn Ihfllr H leader. Brownsville people who are acquainted with the depredations of the gang in that section of the borough take this covert threat very seriously. It is not the first timu that the gang has threatened a Judge with physical violence. Thoy openly boasted that Magistrate Hylan would experience a demonstration of ttrong-arm methods which would rJ-quire hospital treatment, and while the magistrate took the precaution to have a body guard in the person of a policeman, he never wavered In his policy of holding without bail every member of tho gang who happened to be arraigned before him. Lewis and his associates realize that in the event of his conviction on the indictments against him, he need expect no mercy at the hands of Judge Dike. Tho soverity of the sentences which Judge Dike has been dealing out has made Lewis apprehensive of his own fate. Tho law abiding citizens of Brownsville feel that It the worst came to the worst the members of the gang would resort to physical violence rather than leave Lewis to tho tender mercies oi Judge Dike. When Lewis failed to appear last week (vu i iic juutuLiiicui lui uasauii uu naa I within a half hour's riding of the court house The gang members who 'were In the e urt room grinned broadly when they hoard Luke O Reilly, counsel to Lewis, an lounco to Judge Dike that he did not know the whereabouts of his client. Even the Issuance of the bench warrant for Lewis' arrest struck them as being rather humorous. Nevertheless Lewis had good reasons for his strong aversion to being tried be. fore Judge Dike. Only a week before he had been tried on the same charge and the jury disagreed. It Is understood that Judge Dike becamn nonvinend I during the course of the trial that most ftOf Lewis' wltnpqnea wnr. nf the "ntinni-" kind and that their testimony was rank perjury. An Investigation Into the character of those witnesses by officers of tho court convinced Judge Dike that he was correct In his conclusion. Lewis became aware of this investigation and he also heard of the outcome. It was 41,nn . .4 a n t ,4 .1 1 .It .... - tl llface Judge Dike again. .J But he only kept under cover for a few Vdays. Since then ho has been parading ime streets openly, 'trie law apparently has no terrors for him. Several nlghu last week he was seen around his old haunts in Brownsville. If the police were aware of his presence they did not dlinanifDst the slightest concern. tl Lewis boldiy promenaded Pitkin ave- llnue, the main thordughfare of Browns- -Ivillf). Thtd Rnirtt r.F hravirln nvnlta th. admiration of the other members of the gang. To them It proved that Lewis pos-isessed the proper qualifications to be their leader. Abe Lewis will never be tried by lJudge Dike," said one of the hard-faced young , men. "He's not taking any hances with Dike. If the lurv convicted !him he'd either get life or tho next thing ko It. Dike is itching to hand it out to Ithe gang, but he'll never get the chance f we can prevent it, and we won t ston jit anything. Dike shewed he was sore on Abe Iwhen he sent out to look ud the wit nesses who testified at the trial when "the Jury disagreed. It showed that Dike was out to get Abe, and that Abe Scouldn t expect a sauare deal. n "Sure Abe has been over here to iBrownsvillo. There's been nq secret lbout that. The police here don't know nough to get out of the rain. He ain't topping in Brownsville just now, but lie's been here three or four times, and igbt on Pitkin avenue. Lewis had no Intention that his bonds man, otto Leyer, a produce merchant. ihould Kuffor hv his failuro to annenr last week when 'his case was called for trial. Lewis will surrender when the .October term of the County Court begins f he receives satisfactory assurances hat ho will not be tried before Judge 3i)ike. Unless .these assurances are given le will not appear. In that event Leyer vlll be protected and fully compensated or any loss he may sustain by the for feiture of the bond. The "Kid" Twist -,'ane has always raised the necessary 'jfiers happened to get into the clutches fiif the law, and Leyer, the bondsman, will have nothing to fear on that score. In addition to -the Indictment for as- ault, Lewis Is also under Indictment for obbery. Bobbie Paul, who comes from fci. prominent and influential family in f3ast New York, is also under indictment vlth Lewis. Great pressure was brought & n hear bv Drominent Dolltlcians to save fPaul from being tried, but their efforts g'&me to naught. Paul will be tried in Jctober. "Kid" Twist and "Cyclone" Lewis, who ire not related to Abe Lewis, were shot ind Killed by ah Italian at Coney Island ast summer in a quarrel over a girl. Vbe Lewis succeeded Twist in the leadership of the gang. His principal lieu-enant, Sam Koorner, alias Sam English, vas held last week for the Grand Jury in a charge of assaulting a Coney Island ihowman. For years the gang has ter-orised Brownsville storekeepers and nerchants were compelled to give a veekly contribution to secure them immunity from assault nai robbery at tho lands of the gang. i 0UT300K PLAYS AT COLUMBIA. 5 tjpon the campus of Columbia University, just back of the gymnasium. University Heights Manhattan, the Coburn flayers will revive classic comedy in the (nrm of "The Merchant of Venice and ijiroduce Percy MacKaye's comedy, "The Canterbury Pilgrims," on the evenings of jfliily 29, 30 and 31 and the afternoon of j he latter date.' The 'performances are lintended chiefly for the summer session ; jitudents, being given In connection with he courses in Chaucer and Shakspeare fn the department of English of the sum-j-jiner session at Columbia. That the plays will be presented out of doors has added pnuch interest to the series of classic lievlvals, especially as every essential In Ijhe way of costume, character and f Scenery will be preserved. Mr. Mac-J Uaye's play, the principal feature. Is In J rour acts, and Is founded on the famous Canterbury Tales, during the latter part ( the fourteenth century. . COLOR WORKEES' OUTING. The three color workers of New York iield an outing and games at New Dorp, I., on Saturday. There were a num-frr of prizes awarded tc the winners of ;.he various events and everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The outing lifas the first of the eclot workers and proved such a success that there will be scries of outings during the year. The record has been broken for crowds at Coney Island, and yesterday's gathering did it. While there were soma men at tho island who rofused to believe the various transportation lines could carry mora than 350.000 to the beach, the railroad men at the terminals, or some of them, declared they had never before witnessed such crowds as were carried there from early yesterday morning until midnight. That the number was in ex cess of the above named figures was their opinion, and it was also argued by the police along Surf avenue that the railroads never were so thoroughly tested before. Despite tho immense crowd, not a semblance of disorder was observed, and the police were able to put, In an exceedingly quiet day. Borough Inspector Holahan, Inspector O'Brien and Captain Fennelly all agreed that it was the bet day the big amusement resort had ever known, and every man in business who was interrogated as to the day said they had no fault to find whatever. Even those who have been declaring that the Sunday business could be better, despite tho fact that their places are always crowded, were frank in admitting tho day was a very big one. and that they were very busy. When the lights went out at Coney Island yesterday morning after 1 o'clock, thousands of men and women were turned out of tho numerous places of business and crowded into Surf avenue. At 3 o'clock they wero still promenading that thoroughfare. Several hours later the crowd was Increased by the early morning rush, and at 9 o'clock It was seen that Coney Island was in for a big day, and that the record for attendance would probably go by the board. At that hour every train on the various lines operating to the Island was crowded to the platforms. The trains on "the West End line were operated on a five minute headway, and those who live along the line of the road between Fort Hamilton avenue and Ulmer Park who were endeavoring to get to the Island found It a difficult thing to do. The trains on tho other lines were also operated on the regular Sunday schedules soon after daylight, and they 'car ried everybody to Coney Island. The rush made on the bathing pavilions in the morning was terrific. The suits and bath houses were gone In short order, and it was soon necessary to get out pew suits that had not up to that time been used. Thousands who tried to get accommodations at some of the big pavilions gave it up after long waits and returned to their homes. Others walked down to Manhattan Beach where some were accommodated. The rush increased with the arrival of every train and trolley car, and by noon a bath house and suit were at a premium. . At Brighton Beach thousands were accommodated long before the dinner hour, and the crowds hung on until long after dark. Farther down the beach at tue Parkway bathing pavilion, an immense crowd was on hand early in the day. Many were compelled to wait a long time, but they did it without any complaint, knowing full well it would be almost useless to go to any of the other bathing pavilions. A similar state of affairB was observed at all the other places from Balmcr's to Sea Gate. The day could have been considerably warmer, but it is the temperature of the water that counts, and the bathers all declared the water could not have been better. It had maintained the same degree of temperature for more than a week, and that accounts for tho phenomenal business done along the ocean front since Sunday a week ago. Welles Hawk3, publicity pusher at Dreamlund, declared it was one of the biggest days in the history of the park. He spoke from figures, and said every one of the many amusement places within the park inclosure had similar reports to make. The bathing beach at Dream land was one of the busiest places along the front. Over at Luna Park the crowds filed Into every attraction, and especially into the open air things such as The Tickler, chutes, and scenic railways. Judy, the elephant, had a hard day of it, as it seemed every youngster and his aunt In the park wanted a ride. Judy never complained nor kicked, but just continued to put in the laps from Fred Thompson's office to the entrance and return. The band concerts wero also a big attraction and the dancing pavilion, as usual, had a crowded house. Steeplechase Park was jammed continuously. Every one of the many attractions in the place were put in for a laugh. George Tllyou said, when he opened tn--rark this season, and he hoped they would make good. They did, and yesterday the park was a scream. It was a return to childhood days for thousands of men and women, and they were still enjoying themselves long after bcdLlme last night. Manager Frank. Faber of Henderson's declared he was having the time of his life in the effort to accommodate all who desired to get into the music hall, and It was a similar story In the restaurant. Charles L. and Alfred Feltman packed the German garden, restaurant and pavilion early In the day, and the place was delightfully cool. The merry-go-round, one of Coney's oldest attractions, had one of its best days. On the Bowery a promanade with any degree of comfort was out of the question. Stauch's special officers were forced to close the doors at the beginning of every dance and the big restaurant had a record day. The cars on the various scenic railways and roller coasters were operated on a headway of one minute from noon until long after 1 o'clock this morning. It was said many of the places ran short of foodstuffs and the business folk in the neighboring settlements were called upon. Two men were in Bath Beach hunting up bread, and another wanted to purchase several whole cheeses. A man dealing wholesale in frankfurters undertook to deliver a wagon load of the tasty food at one place, but several dealers surrounded the wagon and long strings of frankurters were pulled apart in the game of tug of war that followed. Both the Brighton Music Hall and the New Brighton Theater concerts, afternoon and evening, played to very large audiences. Hundreds of automobiles carried big crowds to Manhattan Beach and the Oriental Hotels, and the band concert at the former hostelry was tho.-oughly enjoyed. The boardwalk from Manhattan Beach to Ocean Parkway was crowded all day and every place along the walk had a big day. Surf avenue was crowded with automobiles, trolley cars, carriages and bicycles, and late In the afternoon the middle of the thoroughfare was used by thousands of people who were unable to get on the sidewalks. That the system adopted by the B. R. T. in the attempt to handle the Coney Island crowds at the Culver and West End depots is a poor one was the opinion of thousands who were pushed and hauled in the rush occasioned by the heavy shower which swept over the island about 6 o'clock. There were only four ticket sellers at the Culver depot and the crush was terrific. Women and children were knocked down and trampled beneath the feet of men. Many complaints were heard every flight last week and particularly Saturday uigbt. THRONG AT R0CKAWAY. Many Thousand City Dwellers Sought Cooling Breezes at the Beach and Found Them. Another record breaking crowd went down to Rockaway Beach yesterday and enjoyed a delightful day. From early In the morning until late In the afternon the trains of the Long Island Railroad and the B. R. T Bystems were crowded to their utmost capacity, men, women and children being compelled to ride on the platforms. The big steamboats went down to the seashore crowded on each trip, and automobile and driving parties helped swell thai. crowd at the beach until it was estimated at fully 290,000. The day was perfect for the greater part, a refreshing breeze blowing off the ocean during the morning and early afternoon hours. Then it veered aroun'! to the southwest and tbe skies became leaden and threatening. The crowds of pleasure seekers did not take any heed of the threatening clouds and continued their pleasures until a late hour. Thousands of bathers disported in the breakers during the day and thousands more stood on the beach or sat in the sand and watched their antics. As far as the eye could reach in either direction up and down the beach there was a aarK, serpentlike line of humanity. On the boardwalk there was scarcely room to walk, while in the Seaside Bection. where the amusement places are located, ine streets and avenues were cnonuu people until late last night. Every place of amusement received its full share of patronage, dancing pavilions, tneaiers, merry-go-rounds, switchbacks, moving picture shows and all the other attractions being crowded all day. Hotels and restaurants did a big business, and the hot frankfurter, popcorn, lemonade and peanut venders had to replentish their stock before evening arrived. The day was a big one for the resort. About 7 o'clock a shower broke and sent the crowds rushin" for shelter, and then it was that the restaurants and different places did a thriving business. During the evening there were frequent showers and the crowd began to thin out after 9 o'clock. YARD BUILDING UNDERMINED Quicksand and Earth Slide Into Dry Dock Excavation. Part of Building No. 20 Being Pulled Down to Prevent an Accident. Another elide of quicksand and earth into the excavation for the new dry dock at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, last night. has rendered building No. 20 bo unstable that the yard authorities have decided to pull down the end of it nearest the dock. The land slipped about a foot during Sunday and last night, and a wide crack de-veloned In the end facade of building No. 20 loosening some of the bricks whlchl came rattling down to the pavement. The street between building No. 20 and the excavation has sunk more than two feet from its normal level, and huge crevasses have appeared in the pavement. The sewer that was broken In two by the slide of a few days ago was broken up by this more recent movement of the earth, and the yard authorities despair of ever repairing it. It is feared, too, that the salt water main will be out of commission as long as the dock is building, and a new Are fighting plant is now being Installed. This plant will be ready. It is said, by the last of the week. A foundation has been laid alojside of the big granite joiner shop, and a fire pump will be set up on and put into commission within the next eight days. Despite the heavy shoring that has been propping up the end of building No. 20 for tho past three weeks, the movement of the earth has so undermined the structure that the yard manager this morning ordered a gang of workmen to pull down the endangered portion of it before it falls and kills some one. LOST BOYS CLAIMED. Two boys, describing themselves, as Harrv Schwartz, 12 years old. of Pater- son, N. J., and Frank Zerlno, 11 yeas old, of 2 Hiram street, same city, were found last night at Steeplechase Park and taken to the police station. They said they had lost their parents in the crowd at Coney Island. They were later claimed by tlieir parents and were taken home. i 1 GERMAN PRIEST HONORED 01 Father Vogel Guest at Banquet at Which Many Italian-Americans Are Present. OCCASION A UNIQUE ONE, Priest Who Has Built Up Large Italian Parish in South Brooklyn to Sail for Rome. One of the pleasante3t testimonial dinners ever given lu Brooklyn was tendered last night by the Italian parishioners of a German priest, who is rector of an Italian church in South Brooklyn. The dinner was given to the Very Rev. John Vogel, P.S.M., rector of the Church of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, at 500 Hicks street, who sails for Rome tomorrow to take part in a general convention of his order. Father Vogel is the local provincial of the order, the Pious Society of the Mission fathers. Mure than two hundred friends of tho priest were present at the dinner, which was held in the large dining room of the Assembly, on Pierrepont street. The attendance at the dinner was representative of the best Italian-American citizenship in Brooklyn. Lawyers, doctors, bankers and business men, with their wives and daughters, filled the room, and the most cordial good fellowship prevailed. All of the Italian churehoi of Brooklyn wore represented by their pastors, and the leaders in all lines of affairs rubbed elbows and chatted with great vivacity. Speeches were made in Italian and in English, and some speeches were made half In one language and half In the other. The gathering was unique, and its occasion was unprecedented. Assistant District Attorney Francis L. Corrao acted as toastmaster, and his apt remarks In Introducing the speakers, first In Italian and then in English, did much to make for the succesj of the affair. In his opening remarks, the assistant dis trict attorney paid a high tribute to the lovable priest whom the diners were honoring, and he stated that no native Italian priest was ever more loved by his parishioners than was fattier vogel. in his case the difference in race was not thought of as any barrier between him and his flock, and in fact it seemed to bind them more closely together. This tribute was received with enthusiasm and certainly seemed to express tho feelings of the auditors. The Rt. Rev. Mgr. P. F. O'Hare, rector of St. Anthony's Church, Greenpoint, was introduced as the "Caesar of the priests of Brooklyn." He was received very heartily and spoke in his inimitable way of the work which Father Vogel bad done and of the esteem in which he was held by all the priests of Brooklyn, from the bishop to the most humble parish pries: with whom he was acquainted. He said that Father, Vogel never had any lauil to find with his parishioners, tho Italians, and that he was always planning thing3 for their benefit. He wished Father Vogel a pleasant voyage and the privilege of returning to Brooklyn to continue his work. The Rev. Francis Castellano, rector or St. Lucy's Church on Kent av, was the next speaker. He delivered a very eloquent and witty speech In Italian, in which he referred to the great work which Father Vogel had accomplished here and abroad. Before coming to Brooklyn, Father Vogel had charge of a district in South Amerlca.where he designed and built a church mainly with his own hands. In South Brooklyn he na3 succeeaea in building a magnificent marble church which 'cost $200,000. and is designed after the fashion of 'one of the most famous churches of Italy. Deoutv Charities Commissioner Thomas W. Hynes then Bpoke in English, and told of his years of acquaintance with Father Vogel. He said that tnc priest worneu incessantly for his parishioners, particularly the Door, and he related incidents which showed how the guest of honor had secured assistance for his pariBh school and for the newly landed Immigrants, even when he himself had scarcely enough money to buy shoes to cover his feet. Father Vogel's sole desire, the commissioner said, was for every one to come to his church, whether !iey had money or not. Ferdinand Savarese and John De Martini then made short speeches in Italian on behalf of their fellow parishioners, and then Father Vogel was Introduced. He spoke first in English anfl then In Italian, and created considerable amuse mem oy supping DacK nut) cogusn aur-.-l ing one of his sentences in the Italian) speech. He said that whatever success" he had met with was due to his parishioners. Referring to the speech of Father Castellano, he said that tho dinner in bo far as It was a tribute to him as a parish priest, absolutely refuted the charge that the Italians as a class had no regard or esteem for their priests. He said that it showed that they loved their church and were loyal and faithful to the religion of their forefathers, even though they wero In a foreign. Aaad and surrounded by alien Influences, lie-fore he took charge of th' newly established parish In South Brooklyn, he Eaid, fourteen missions of other faiths were being supported in the belief that the Italians disliked the Catholic religion. But when the Italians and tho other people who were supporting these missions Baw that a Catholic priest was respected and was able to do things for his people, the missions went out of existence. He said that he hoped to be allowed to return to Brooklyn, ana paid a tribute to Bishop McDonnell as the man who above all others, held the Italians of this borough close to his heart. The committee In charge of the dinner was composed of the following men: The Rev. Valentine Marino, chairman: th Rev. James Ruvolo, Assistant Dlstr'ct Attorney Francis L. Corrao, John Solari, Ferdinand Savarese, Raphael Savarese, Ealvatore Savarese, Joseph Savarese, Gennaro Pastori. Joseph Bleo. Peter Ab bate. Joseph Martinlano.

On Saturday night, the annual apron and necktie party of the Bav View Yacht Club was held at the clubhouse on Ja maica Bay, off Hollard Station, Rock away Beach, and the affair was very argcly attended and a thoroughly en joyable tlmo was had by all. The club house was prettily decorated with flags and yachting pennants, while numerous lamps lent a mellow glow to the scene. Dancing was enjoyed until a late hour and a supper was served. A FLUSHING BANKRUPT. Howard P. Wheeler, a well-known Flushing business man, has filed pet! tion In bankruptcy In the Federal Court, in which he gives his liabilities as $5,750.81. About three years ago Mr. Wheeler bought the Mann farm, south of Flushing, and began to develop it.

Amethyst color tussar gown, embroid ered batiste yoke and trimming; blact B"t'h bands. (Special to the Eagle.) Northport. L. I., July 19 Captain Ed Thompson of Northport and Brooklyu has had a pretty rough time of it for the past three days. The captain has built himsrll a bungalow over on the big beach at Fire Island, a good many miles from tho nolsj of everything but the surf, and has christened the place Lonelyville. Captain Thompson i3 the mayor and Captain Watts, the only other white resident, is chief of police. Captain Thompson got a deputy sheriff's badge for his commissioner and gave him the keys of the city. Friday afternoon some of Thompson's admirers from Brooklyn went down to "help open the shack," and from tho time the captain heard they wore coming, until ho succeeded In shooing them away yesterday afternoon, life was a rough and stormy voyage to the captain. Tho list of those who abused tho good captain's hospitality speaks for itself. When It is given, nothing else need he said to those who share tho nightmare of their acquaintance. They wero "Tho" Christmas, whose fame is coextensive with the whole South Shore; McKinney of Northport, known as "former senator"; John Lewis Chllds, the czar of Floral Park; W. H. Moffltt. who is trying to make two blades grow, etc., out Isllp way, also over on tho sand dunes at Ocean Bay Park; "Ed" Lyon, "Jim" Streaton. Dr. Hicks, Captain Clock, Dr. Do Tienne. the well-known long-distance walker, who only puts his shoes on when be gets splinters In his feet; one or two others unknown tojfame and Elliott F. Smith of Northport, who Is the only known person who gets along absolutely without sleep. The captain's troubles began when he tried to "meet" the gang at Bay Shore on Friday night. Of course, the captain did not meet -them, because such a thig was a physical impossibility. None of them was ever where he was expected to be, and naturally the captain and "Elly," the sleepless, sat around on the dock, waiting to ferry them across, until darkness fell, without so much as a glimpse of aDy one of them. They had fallen in with Moffltt on the train and generously offered to let him carry them to the water in his limousine and then get out his powerboat to sail them to Lonelyville. They reached the bungalow while Thompson and Elly were trying to keep their craft afloat In the hurricane which swooped down on the bay Just after dark. After many hardships by land and sea. Captain Thompson made port at Lonelyville, to And that the gang had broken in and was browsing on his supplies. The gang tried to shut the mayor out. but finally consented to let him In if he would promise to sleep In a chair. Over the happenings of the next forty-eight hours the veil of charity must be drawn. Yesterday afternoon the gang raided the "Wa-Ws-Yanda" Club, as the guests of Mr. Moffltt. Moffltt will probably be expelled as soon as the board of governors has a chance to sit on the case, though he was absolutely helpless to prevent what happened. Thompson is at his home at Northport. His recovery is doubtful. The gang i reached Brooklyn last- night in an auto mobile and a general alarm has been sent out by "Sheriff" Watts for the apprehension of any or all of them, especially Christmas.

Church, Ninety-sixth street and Fifth avenue, yesterday evening by tho Rev. Father McGiuley. Only the young couple, two witnesses and the priest were present at the ceremony. Tho bride is tho daughter of a policeman. Throughout all his trouble with the police Duffy was calling at the home of Patrolman James Carey, of the One Hundred and Sovonty-first precinct, at Fort Hamilton, courting Miss Carey. Yesterday afternoon Duffy called at th Carey home, which is a pretty rose covered cottage surrounded by flowers, and had supper there. After supper Duffy and Miss Carey that was went out apparently for a walk. A fuw moments later Miss Catherine Carey, a sister of tho bride, and a young man friend, who wero also In the house, left too. A few hours later all returned laughing and happy. Then Mit3 Carey walked up to her mother, and giving her a kiss, said: "Aren't you going to congratulate me? George and I were married this evening."

Mr, Carey was doing patrol duty and he knew nothing about tho wedding until he arrived boms several hours later. When an Eagle reporter called at the Carey home this morning he found the house filled with neighbors who had called to congratulate the family. Both the bride and tho bridegroom were out, but Mr. and Mrs. Carey were at home and consented t be Interviewed. They said that they wero both pleased with the state of affairs and that they had always believed In young Duffy throughout the entire trouble. Mrs. Carey said: "I always knew that George was a good boy, for ho lias been calling here for mora than a year, and during that time ho had always acted like and behaved as a perfect gentleman. Though I did not know that the wedding was to have taken plaoe last night I understood that Margaret and George were engaged. I suppose they wanted o be up-to-date and so wer wedded secretly."
