Large Crowds View the Wreck.
Some Reckless Chance Takers.
Funeral of Mr. Wilson.
The scone of the fatal boiler explosion
on Sunday morning at Van Bergen &
C03 foundry, near Dundaff street, con
tinued to bo a mecca for many curious
pilgrims yesterday. There wore not as
large crowds pressing around the heaps
of bricks and wreckage as there were
on Sunday, but that wus only 'because
most of the city's laborers had to work
yesterday. There were many ladles
who came to the spot to have nolnted
out to them tho place where Wilson Is
supposed to have been standing when
the disaster occurred, and then walked
up tho canal bed, 200 feet away, where
his burned and scalded body struck.
There Is a spot about a foot sauarp
broken from the bank here, and these
onlookers gazed with fascinated eyes
and with shudders at the Indentation
In the black loam.
The (Jebris that lay scattered over a
wide area on Sunday morning was be
ing accumulated slowly Into heaps all
day by a force of laborers yesterday,
nnd tho tedious work will occupy all of
the week. Tho wall that adjoined the
engine room, or what Is left standing
of It, Is In a very unstable condition
and Is extremely liable to come down
at any moment. This part of tho wreck
should be shunned by the people who
come to look at tho scene, but with
careless disregard for their own safety
and the nervous apprehensions of
others they press heedlessly on, run
ning chances that most of them would
condemn in others. They are warned
buck by watchmen and others, but
with a shrug of the shoulders they pass
these human obstacles, who tamely let
them go on. This rear wall will have
to come down, any way, and the com
pany should demolish it at onco and
avoid all chances of a possible damage
suit from a passerby hit by a 'brick or
crippled or worse.
Workmen were busy all day yester
day digging a ditch from the electric
pWnt to the machine shop of the
foundry and erecting a wooden conduit.
The company will Install an electric
motor in the foundry today and expect
to resume casting tomorrow.
Opinions and theories still continue to
be put forth by every man who visits
the ruins. It makes no difference
whether the talker has ever seen a
boiler before or not. He expounds his
ideas to a little knot of onlookers and
Is sincere in his belief that he knows
Just how it happened. Among the en
gineers and other technical men the
impression prevails very strongly that
the boiler had been allowed to become
dry and that Wilson discovered this
and let the water run in. Some men
virtually took their life in their hands
on Sunday and yesterday by clamber
ing over the piles of wreckage and
going over to the upturned boiler and
peering in. The boiler still rests on
one corner, with the furnace end down
and the arch Is loosely held by a por
tion of wall. The slightest disturb
ance would not only probably bring
hundreds of pounds of brick down on
these adventurous men, but It might
result in the boiler falling over and
crushing them. It was a perilous
undertaking and the police should be
used to restrain such foolhardy ex
ploits, if common souse will not suf
fice. Camera fiends were In evidence all
day and on a little culm bank thirty
feet away tripods were set up with
out number and rubber bulbs squeezed
to take an exposure of the greatest ex
plosion that has ever been witnessed In
Coroner Itobcrts has picked a body
of representative citizens to serve on
his jury, but in the interests ,of tho
people he will not make public the
names as yet. The jury were at the
scene of tho wreck yesterday morning
and surveyed the ruins.
Tho brass shop and core shops im
mediately adjoining the wrecked boiler
room were badly stirred up, the walls
being blown, down and hundreds of
bricks ruining in the apertures. Had
the accident happened on a weekday
It would have been a mlrncle If a largo
number of men had not been hurt. Be
sides this, a large number of persons
pass the foundry as a short cut over
the bridge leads from Main to Dundaff
.streets and It is made quite a thor
oughfare. Tho man who was seen talking to
Wilson Just before tho explosion Is be
lieved to be a mun named Padden, A

Tribune reporter hunted Industriously
for him yesterday, but his whereabouts
could not bo ascertained, He got out
safely, and some say that they mot
him running breathlessly along South
Main street about ten minutes nfter
tho explosion, with a hunted look on
his face.
As Is usual after such accidents, a
largo number of men have come for
ward with tales of being In the Im
mediate vicinity or of having seen tho
eatustroplie. A reference to the fact
that they would prove valuable wit
nesses to tho coroner usually has tho
curious result of lessening their desire
to pose In the public eye.
The funeral of David Wilson, the sole
victim of the terrible explosion, will ho
held today at his late residence, Eighth
avenue and Mill street, at 3 p. m. The
Itev. Charles Lee, of tho First Presby

services and will bury him In accord
ance with their beautiful and solemn
rites. Tho Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers, of which Mr. Wilson was
also a member, will have a large dele
gation present. The body will be In
terred In Maplewood cemetery. The
community wears a hushed, awed air
as they discuss the tragedy and talk of

honored citizen and a man whom his
fellow-townsmen without exception re

May Be Paid Oftener.
Superintendent Hose, of the coal de

yet nothing had been decided as to
whether the company would pay every
two weeks. The company is waiting
to see If tho other companies are will
ing to agree upon semi-monthly pay
days. The Delaware and Hudson are
willing to do as the majority decide,
but does not care to take the initia

complained of before going on strike
are being carefully considered, nnd
It Is probable that they will be ad
justed one at a time. The miners aie

The interval between great meteoric

Intersects the orbit of the earth.
Throught most of the length of this

congregated In a vast swarm, with

Leonids complete their orbit In thirty

tho particles will bo scattered moro

foot ball team had Just broken
training and tho bliss of undisturbed
smoking had not worn off. He did not

ho took a quiet satisfaction In being

It Is not In the least ai original

threads a man's destiny hangs.
What impulse turned his eyes out
of tho window at exactly tho same
instant a trim figure stopped on tho
curb? The sophomore's backbono
straightened with a jerk.

A sudden idea stopped him short;
he stuffed the rubbers Into his pocket

if you'd like to wear them they'll keep

She looked appeallngly across the
street and then at him. Someone had
once told him that ho looked honest.
It flashed Into his mind now, and
ho wondered what she thought.
That was the girl that his room
mate was always talking about.
"Kate Carlyle!"
There was a pause. He looked at
her keenly, and she blushed. "I am
going to lunch with my sister, but-"
Then he went on: "Perhaps you
know her. She's er Kate Carlyle."
The sophomore shuddered,
"Oh, I'm so relieved; I might have
known he was all right."
She clapped her hands gayly and
looked at him again. "You are Kate's

In It. She touched the bell. He stood
behind her without moving, and the
corners of her mouth glow tense. A
man opened the door, and shy stepped
in, pulling at her gloves. She turned
quickly, saw his disappointment and
laughed. "Aren't you coming in to get
your sister's clothes?" Then, after a
violent tug, "Martin, Mr. Carlyle and
I will lunch at once."
The sophomore pushed back his plate
and folded one hand over the knuckles
of the other. "I am a scoundrel" ho
began Irrelevantly. Ho took a swal
low of water and shook tho tumbler
absently. "There are times when
hitherto honorable men will do despi
cublo things and not experience the
least regret. Their training und all
their ideals may be revolted, but under
the same circumstances they would do
precisely the same thing again."

wish to speak. "The greatest compli

She leaned forward and held out her
hand. "I respect you for what you
have Just said," she said, simply. "I
have trusted you, and I do yet. But
if thero Is any blumo, I will bear half."
Ho was soberly balancing two spoons
on his finger nnd did not see the de

timid, smile that played on her lips.

Washington, Nov. 19. Tho deereaso
of tho Hawaiian race has been steadily
growing less rapid for the past several
decades, especially the female popula
tion, according to the annual report of
ex-President Sanford B. Dole, gover
nor of Hawaii. The increase of part
Hawallans tends to keep down the
number of pure Hawallans. While the
figures show race progress, the census
reports as to surviving children aro
discouraging. In both the censuses of
1890 and 1S90 the pure- Hawaiian per
centage of survivors was the lowest of
all nationalities represented in the
Islands. An encouraging outlook for
the Hawallans exists In the fact that
out of 6,327 owners of renl estato In
189C, 3.99S wero pure Hawallans and 722
part Hawallans, The facts aro signifi
cant as showing the ownership of hold
ings by so largo a number of pure
Hawallans, and the evident tendency of
tho ruce to acquire homesteads. Tho
ox-president reports that there Is rea
son to expect that annexation is going
to influence Hawaiian character very
favorably through the changed condi
tions effected. Their old dependence on
their chiefs has ceased and they are
forced to rely more on their own ef
forts. Tho political privileges they en

Not satisfied with her reputation for
good cooking, Paris is founding a new
culinary league, which shall dlssoiui
nuto Mi a knowledge of tho saucepan
far and wide, says a Lqndon news
paper. Put already she has a famous
society of the Cordon Mien, or niuo
Itlbbon of tho Kitchen. It is tills which
Great Iirltaln might Imitate.
For tho Cordon Illeu Is a teaching
university, conducted by postmasters
of tho art, It is managed by a com
mittee of great chefs, all of whom have
borno the heat and burden of the day
In many a savory kitchen. They have
their headquarters In that famous ren
dezvous of gourmets, the Palais Itoyal,
and here they wield the most skilled
basting spoons In France, The Cordon
Kleu Iioh been established fur live
years, and during that time has turned
out many oflcpiit ranks, Its aim Is lo
teach the art' of cooking well and econ
omically, for Fiench house wives prefer
it eulslnleie who does not waste ma
terial. It frequently has Kugllsli and
sometimes American pupils. For L'l a
month a pupil may attend every day,
learn to cook her own dejeuner, und
havo it set veil up as soon as It Is
ready, Her early martyrdom Is a hap
py augury for man led happiness, Oua
of fhe professors of the school is deco
rated with the Legion of Honor, and
all ure ut tlm head of their profession,
Recently the Cordon Hleu has estab
lished a circuit system for ihe prov
nces. F,aeh chef lu turn takes his tour,
and tho French government, which
knows the value to the nation of good
cooking, makes a grant In aid of
these provlnclul lectures and demonstration.
