DDT BENT Oil SUICIDE II Waring his arms wildly and muttering in some foreign tongue, a young hoy ttracted a big crowd yesterday after-Boon at Bergen street ami Fifth avenue. The boy was neatly dressed, but bis actions led the s)Cctators to believe he was crazy, lie approached one man and was beard to ask in broken English - for "the river,' 'and the man promptly :told Patrolman Ryan, of the Fuxkville Station, who was passim: the lmy - was evidently plnnnitija- his life. Ryan took the borynfie Bergen street station, a blocked way, where' he finally told his story. He said be was Xathnn Belson, '18 years old, and was without a home. He told the police he used to work for bis brother in Manhattan, but tlint various articles had been missing from the stock and bis brother had accused him of stealing them. He felt bad at the accusation, and throwing up bis place, fce left his brother's house nnd came to Brooklyn looking for work. He was nimble to find it and decided to jump Into the river. He was unfamiliar with .. this borough, and his excitement as he 1 -wandered through the streets looking for a (lock from which to jump off caused some excitement on the part of spocta- . tors. " . The boy was arraigned in the Myrtle Avenue Court to-day where Magistrate Naumer suspended sentence nftcr he ; bad beard the story. He cautioned the lad about making auy other attempt to take his life. FREEDOM FOR MOYER. BOISE, Idaho. July 2f.

TENEMENT HOLOCAUST (Continued from Fage On.) blew out the entire front of the Nicaln 1I Narcos grocery store on the ground flnn on,! linnplroH him down. The en tire neighborhood wag awakened 1.V the explosion. Instantly the head of every family within hearing aeenied to begin tiring' a revolver, thinking they had thus giveu warning that their homes were guarded. The authors of the fusillade then retired to their rooms and closed and locked the doors. The Italian tenants of the doomed 1ii.ii. rushed into the halls, but were iiiHtautly driven bark by the burst of tiames. Tile families on me uifi nun second floors are believed to have es-fnnpA hot 'hose above had no such chance.

Corps of unidentified adult, sex unknown, as result of burns. About 2iKt were made homeless by the fire, which destroyed not only their lodgings, but all their possessions. If the tenants of the burned buildings behaved with exceptional cowardice, the firemen and police appeared to unusual advantage. It wns impossible to reach several of the fire-escapes except by forming living chains from the windows of adjoining buildings, and by this means many persons were swung at a dizzy height from the fire-escapes of the Homing structure to safety. The rescuers themselves were licked by the flames as they worked. On some of the ladders two firemen would climb up together, one crushing himself against the side to give his comrade room. In this way the rescues were effected with remarkable rapidity. The building wns reduced to n smouldering heap in a little more than an hour, but such was the heat that it has been as yet impossible to make a thorough search for more bodies. The ambulance surgeons were swamped by the throng of patients, and several sufferers were compelled to lie in the street until they could be taken to hospitals. Ada Lamonti. who will probably die. is supposed to have fallen from the fire-escae at the rear of the building. She was badly burned, sustained fractures of both let's, and was internallv injured. She lay unconscious in a heap of boxes and rubbish for four hours before she was found. Italian detectives were rushed to the scene to investigate the cause of the tire. They report positively that it was of incendiary oricin, adding that many of the tenants of the l;uihling have been terrorized by the Black Hand. The police and tire departments join in reporting the tenement hojise a veritable fire trap. They say the flames fairly leaped from bottom to top of the building, that the means of escape were inadequate and that the construct :nn was so flimsy its to offer not the . slightest obstacle to the spread of the flames. I The question of the Tenement House ' I lepartniptil s responsibility for sucn conditions has already been brought to Mayor McClcllan's attention, and a rigorous investigation will be ordered. F.H. SMITH i HIS WIFE EACH ACCUSE THrOTHER Husband Charged With Abandonment and Other Offenses. I'red II.

Tlie manner in which the flames spread, after 16-year-old David KaU, i n.voti watchman, bad been lolled in trying to stamp out the tiny tongue of flame that creorj thromrh the floor of the Care of the Winds, was spectacularly wormy ot tjoney s reputation of biaarre-ness. In a moment the tiny ribbon of flame was a leaping, writhing monster, roaring its fiery head 200 feet in the air and lighting up Tilyou's pleasure city with a sinster glare. Another moment and it had launched Itself with red menace at the flimsy structure to the eastward. When the "hoodoo box," at the Bowery and Kensington walk was pulled, two minntt after, eren the polite knew the fire bad become a conflagration. The automatic alarm was supplemented by telephonic messages that hronehr everv engine in Brooklyn and Deputy Chief Biuus from Manhattan in an auto race that took, him to the beach, in sixteen minutes. , There were hundreds of incidents, each one as odd s the people of the big re- nury, mat i oo it place during tne ore, which called out every resident of the island, and many, despite the hoar, from all parts of the city. An armless and legless freak was awakened by the flames to find himself helpless. A fat woman who had the net room in the hotel, carried the freak to safety on her back. In her hand she carried a Cirdsslaa iadf a tresses. The Oircasf ian lady herself kgced an empty trunk. "Business was goed this year. I got a tonnk.

With the fatality of his race, seeing his fortune destroyed, he had smoked pipe after pipe and laid down to die. The roof of his shack fell in as be was dragged out by a cod. The rescue of Uncle Sam's mails from the postoffice in the Steeplechase was a good bit of work. United States Marshal Mayhew broke open the doors, and with men he Impressed into strvice, dragged out all of the postoffice property. Later this was inventoried and it was found that not even a penny stamp was missing. The fixed property of the office was badly damaged, but some of it can be used in the temporary office which G. D. Haggerty. the superintendent, has engaged at Seventeenth street and Surf avenue. Louis Stanch, who has been burned out three times before, was partially burned ont yesterdsy. His castle-like dancing hall, built of steel, defied the flames but his bathing pavilion in the rear and hie laundry next door went up in flames. It was largely dae to the non-inflammability of the dance hall that the fire went no further in this direction. The blase did not last long. By 6 o'clock It was out.

OUTING OF 12TH A. D. DEMS. TO BE HELD AT DREAMLAND. Miles from the scene of the Coney Island fire yesterday the influenco of that conflagration was felt, and more than a score of men working industriously all day and most of the night to repair the damage which the fire had done to their plans. The men who were so affected by the happenings at the seashore were the officers and committeemen of the Twelfth Assembly District Regular Democratic Club, which was to have held its first annual beach party at Steeplechase Park to-morrow. Just as soon fcs it was known that Steeplechase was in ruins steps were taken to transfer the ottting to some other amusement resort, and before the ired officers went to bed last night they had completed all arrangements for holding the outing at Dreamland. ' It waj a strenuous Sunday for Michael E. Butler, the district leader, and all his assistants. Early in the morning, as soon a he beard of the fire, Mr. Butler hurried to the Island to verify the reports. He was soon satisfied that the Steeplechase management was unnhle to fulfil its contract with the Twelfth District Democrats, and he hastened to Dreamland to consult former Sheriff William J. Buttling, manager of that park. Mr. Buttling readily agreed to take the big outing party, and arrangements were made to give the Butlerites admission to Dreamland and to six of the attractions for the price of the Steeplechase ticket, 25 cents. It was agreed that the Dreamland management should print, the tickets and have them ready by" Tuesday noon, when they would be exchanged for the Steeplechase tickets at a special booth to be stationed at the entrance of the park. This arranged, Mr. Bntler hurried back to the city and found a printer who could call his employees together for Sutidav work. The Dresses were soon busy printing notices of the change, to be sent to the members of the club. In the meantime officers of the club had been summoning the committeemen by telephone, and by noon many willing workers were at the clubhouse. No. 31 19 Ninth street. A few took charge of changing the big banner in front of the mbhouse, on wntcti tne outing is adver tised, but most of them were set to work addressing envelopes. The club has more than 2,000 members, and it was thought proper to send the notices to all. - Hundreds of envelopes were addressed and stamped before the circulars, began to arrive from the printer. All evening long the circularswith the ink still wet. were toiaea ana manea. ine work am not stop until the entire membershin list had been cared for, and when at last the clubhouse was darkened for the night the leader and his lieutenants' had the satisfaction of knowing that the big outing -would come off as smoothly as if the tire had not occurred. EH ENDS LIFE BY HANGING Miss Limbacher's Suicide Fol lows Despondent Spell. Miss Christina Limbacher, a shoe fitter, 24 years old, who lived with her parents at No. 107ft Flushing avenue, committed suicide to-day by hanging herself Is her place ojt employment, at No. 157 Meeerole street Exactly What was the motive for her tragic act If not known. . r'rora an Investigation by , the police, It looked as if the young woman had been disappointed In a love affair a few years ago. Her parents deny this, however. Frequently during the last six mouths Miss Limbacher woul have fits of depression, and while In that condition wonld keep to herself not speaking to anyone. 8he was in the habit of leaving her home at 1 o'clock every day and go to wotk, but to-day she left an hour earlier. She wae in a seemingly despondent mood when she left her home. When sBe reached the factory, the door had already been opened for the employees. No one saw the woman enter the building, but it hi thought she was the first to reach there. Bhe went to a room nijolulag the efOoe, and there she went abont oarefullt' making preparations for commttring snlaMe.

The Long Beach Hotel was built sev. eral years ago and cost $800,000. It was a .roiir-storv structure, built of wood, nearly 1,200 feet long. It stood facing south, about 300 yards from the waler. on the island of Long Beach, an eight- iiiue sinp lying Dei ween lar Kockawav and Fire Island. The capacity of the hotel alone was about 1,100 guests. There is besides a line of cottages, running east from the hotel for a mile along the seaside. Long Beach, further from town than such resorts as Coney Island and Rocka-way, has been designed rather as something in the line of Atlantic Oity. and drawing the same class of guests. The Long Beach Development Company, at present owning the place, was formed in April of the nresent year with a capital of $0,000,000. Tt took over the hotel at a cost of $200,000, and planned great developments. The property includes ownership of the island to the west and a thirty-year lease of the portion to the east , The president or the new company Is former Senator William H. Reynolds. Other officers associated In the ownership are Frank Bailey, of the Title Guarantee & Trust Company, iee-president, and Remsen Johnson, of the Jere Johnson Company. Senator Patrick H. Mc-Carren. Henry Morgenthau and others are said to be deeply Interested. It was said at the time the deal was made that the Long Island Railroad wanted to double track the entire distance to the beach and make the run from the new Pennsylvania depot In New York In forty minutes. It wss even said that $10,000,000 would be spout on the stretch of beach, which was to have n boardwalk, cottages and hotels for its entire length. Steamboats were to run on the inside route. BROOKLYN MEN HARD HIT BY LONG BEACH DISASTER. The hotel was seven stories high, and had a frontage of 1,000 feet on the ocean. It had a promenade veranda along the entire front of the hotel. This wns the longest promenade of any hotel , in the country. , The fire will prove a severe blow to a . group of prominent Brooklyn real estate operators. Headed by former Senator Reynolds, they bought the property last year and organized the estates of Long Beach. It was planned to develop another Atlantic City. Contracts had been let for building a five-mile concrete bulkhead nnd boardwalk. Associated with Mr. Reynolds were Senator McCarren. Frank Bailey. George F. Dobson and Henry Morgenthau. The Long Beach Hotel was built In 18S0 by a company headed by William Lnffan, of the New York "Suq." Associated with him were a nnmber of liter- -ary men who made Long Beach a prominent literary settlement. In 1884 the company failed, and was continued under the receivership of Col. H. P. Chapman, father of the cottager who was burnt out to-day. Later Paul C. Ames was made the receiver, and the hotel continued under his management until lust year,' when Mr. Reynolds bought the property. Mr. Ames was put In charge of the . real estate development, the company beginning the erection of a number of new cottages, and William' Johnson Quinn wns made manager of the hotel. The twenty-one cottages which were endangered by the fire were part of the original construction, being built in 1880 by the original company. That concern also built a railroad from Millbrook to Long Beach, which is now a part of the Long IslHiid Railroad system. The total expenditure by the original company was $1,450,000. , . GAS CO.

Attorney General Jackson met a setback to-day in his effort to annul the charter of the Consolidaed Gas Company on the ground that it is a trust nnd operated under charters which expired many years ago. ,; ... .. Judge McCall, of the Supreme Court denied Jack son Js application for pertnls , sion to bring suit to annual the contested charters. . -' , 3 DEAD IN RAILROAD CRASH.
