sume tho steamship Trlnldndiiin. an
chored there, swept on across the wa
ter until the lire was ac tually raging
fifty feet from the shore.
The eonllanratIon practically de

Trlhldadliin to a hulk and consumed
hundreds of thousands of gallon of

the skipper had to leap Into the river
from tlie bridge of his craft
Tho action of the skipper. Captain
A. H. Edmunds, was as brave n bit
of work ns any told in tales of the
sea. He was awakened by the shouts
of his men and sprang to the dock, not
taking time to dress. He found the
wharf a mass of flames and tho side of
his vessel blackened with smoke. lie
acted promptly.
Knowing that thousands of gallons
of petroleum lay In the six partly filled
tanks In the hold of the vessel, he
ordered his men to Immediately man
the boats. The crew of thirty-nine,
under the first trad second officers,,
sprang into the three lifeboats, while
the ropes were loosened and the boats
slipped downward on the davits. In
the captain's boat a boatswain took
tho rudder.
"Swing off!" ordered the sklpier
from tho bridge. "Keep away!"
The men in the bonts saw him come
up with a pair of trousers swung over
his arm, and at the same Instant the
llames roared from the wharf tn a long

The sklper grasped the trousers in bis
teeth and leaped.
He struct the water and swam for
ids boat When the crew pulled him In
he was minus the trousers. When he
reached shore the skipper said that
there had been a hundred pounds, or
$500 in American money, in the pockets
of the trousers and Uiat was why he
wanted to save them.

Campaign Assignment Congenial For
tho "Peerless One."
Se;i Girt, N. ,J.. July 25. The ques
tion ns to what Is to become of Wil
liam J. Bryan in the Democratic na
tional campaign was seemingly an
swered hero wln'ii close political ad
visers of Coventor Wilson let it lie

ment will be to worry and harass the
third party's candidate and to follow
him Into every debatable state.
The assignment of Hryan to take
care of Colonel Roosevelt is regarded
here as one In which the Nebrnsknn
will take great joy. It is known that
Bryan bus regarded Roosevelt as a
trespasser upon Democratic preserves,
and the Wilson forces expect him to
make n brave showing as a defender
of his party's right to carry out In of
fice the things which Uryan ndvocated
long before Colonel Roosevelt decided
thnt he, too, would take them up.

.AIotorKts Will Ask Legislators t(
Open Delaware Spans.
A campaign Is now being waged to
combine motorists In Pennsylvania
in a petition to the Legislature of
that state for an appropriation suf
ficient to co-operate with tho State of
New Jersey in the purchase of all
toll bridges over the Delaware river.
New Jersey has already made an
appropriation, not to exceed $500,
000, for the purchase of its share of
these bridges, and It is now neces
sary to get a similar appropriation
from Pennsylvania to make the. plan
effective. Pressure will be brought
to bear at the next session of the
Pennsylvania Legislature to pass the
appropriation bill.
This move will lit in nicely with
the plan of New Jersey to complete
next year a fine new highway along
the banks of tho Delaware, from
Trenton to the Delaware Water Gap
and from there to Port Jervis, on
the Jersey-New York state line, thus
providing a magnificent boulevard
112 miles long through the pict
uresque Delaware Valley.
Tho present Inferior road up the
historic valley runs from Trenton to
Stockton, N. J., along tho Jersey
bank, but there the tourist has to
cross to Pennsylvania to reach Eas
ton. From Easton to the Gap there
are roads on both sides of the river,
but if any crossing ls done tho tour
ist llnda himself paying money to
toll bridges. Prom the Wator Gap
to Port Jervla tho beauties of the
Kittatinny and Shawangunk moun
tains are at present lost, as there is
no road on tho Jersey side.
