Cruelty On Shipboard

Mate Rich on Trial for Causing a Sailor's Death.

Three sailors went to Commissioner Shields yesterday to testify against Albert M. Rich, mate of the Robert L. Belknap, accused of so brutally beating and starving James Peterson, one of the crew, as to cause his death. Rich is a big man, powerfully built, and seemingly all bone and muscle.

Carl Eisenger told how the ship sailed from San Francisco Nov. 18, 1886, and reached Liverpool March 20, this year. When they reached the other side they complained to the American Consul; their depositions were taken, and Rich was ordered to be arrested on his return to the United States. Eisenger said that the work Peterson did was all that could be expected of one man. Rich began his brutality as soon as the Belknap left San Francisco. He struck all the men at all times and without any provocation. He hit them with his fist or a rope or a belaying pin or whatever was nearest at hand. He seemed to do it for sport. Some of the men became sick through the beatings they received and because they were weakened by insufficient food. There was no particular insubordination that called for severe punishment and there was plenty of food to give the crew. "After we had been out about three months," said Eisenger, "and after I had heard the mate say that he would kill Peterson before he got to Liverpool, I saw Rich hit Peterson with a belaying pin. He hit him a fearful blow on the back of the head and cut it open in three places. The blood flowed in streams and covered the deck. Peterson fell insensible. Twenty hours later he died."

Testimony was given to show that the Captain refused to interfere to prevent the mate's cruelty and the hearing was adjourned until tomorrow.

Notice To Mariners.

New-York Lower Bay-Bell Buoy Placed to Mark Wreck.

The wreck of the bark Quickstop lies heading N.W., and with her rail about awash on the edge of the West Bank, New-York Bay, about 500 years to the southward of Buoy No. 11. The position of the stern is given by the following bearings, viz.: Fort Tompkins Light, N. W.; Coney Island Tower, E.N.E.

A bell buoy, painted black, has been placed in four fathoms of water about 150 yards S.S.E. E. from the stern of the wreck. At present all the spars of the wreck are standing, and she is not dangerous in clear weather.

By order of the Lighthouse Board.

A Steamship Ashore

Halifax, Nova Scotia, May 25.-The steamship Genrath, Capt. Storey, from Coosaw, S.C., for the United Kingdom, arrived at Sydney, Cape Breton, yesterday, received a supply of coal and sailed this morning. During a thick fog she grounded on Low Point, Tugs are at work trying to pull her off.

Caught At Last By Measles.

Columbia, S.C., May 25.-Amy Avant, a colored woman on the plantation of Major James Reaves, in Marion County, died yesterday of measles at the advanced age of 122 years. She was remarkably well preserved and retained all her faculties up to the time of her fatal illness, previous to which she claimed that she had never taken a dose of medicine. During the last cotton-picking season she took her place regularly in the cotton fields and always performed a good day's work. Her age is well attested by family records.

Union Veterans In Canada.

Ottawa, May 25.-Two hundred Canadian veterans who participated in the late American civil war will hold a meeting here shortly for the purpose of organizing an association. If regulations will permit, the proposed organization will simply be a part of the Grand Army of the Republic. The prime mover in the scheme is a French Canadian named Therien, who served on board the Union flagship when the rebel ram Albemarle was sunk. Nearly all the veterans reside in this city or vicinity. They propose to display their loyalty by marching in procession here on Dominion Day, wearing at the same time a distinctive badge commemorative of the late civil conflict.

Daly Far Ahead Of Sexton.

Washington, May 25.-Playing was resumed to-night in the six days' billiard match between Messrs. Daly and Sexton. The attendance during the evening was small and little enthusiasm was displayed. Neither player made any remarkable runs and the game lagged until the eightieth inning, when Daly's score reached the limit-300 to 129 points for Sexton. The total for the three nights thus stands: Daly, 900; Sexton, 500. Daly's highest run for to-night was 25 and Sexton's 23.

  The Queen Has Left Us.

Queen Kapiolani and her party sailed for Liverpool yesterday morning on the Anchor steamship City of Rome. The royal party took a very early breakfast at the Victoria Hotel and shortly after 6 o'clock were on the deck of their steamer. On reaching the vessel her Majesty declined to go at once to stateroom No. 28, which had been set apart for her use, and, calling for a steamer chair, she watched from the deck the busy scene which preceded the departure of the big steamer.

Princess Lilinokalani occupied stateroom No. 38, and No. 43 was reserved for Gov. Iaukea and Col. Boyd. Commodore Berkley and wife, Hawaiian Consul Allen and wife, and Edwin H. Low were among those who took leave of the Queen on board the vessel. The City of Rome backed out into the stream at 7 o'clock. Among her other passengers were Gen. Stewart L. Woodford, Mme. Helene Hastreiter, Signor del Puente, Mme. Trebelli, the Rev. W.H. DePuy, Gen. Charles S. Bentley, Gen. A.L. Chetlain, the Hon. T.R. Jones, Judge J.W. Ferris, Major J.A.F. Snead, the Hon. Edward Stanley, the Hon. Lewis Pugh, the Hon. Thomas H. Dudley, and Dr. E.L.M. Bristor.

Exciting Spring Games.

A.A. Jordan Fails to Break The 100 Yards' Record.

The eleventh annual picnic and field day of the Pastime Athletic Club at the Empire City Colosseum yesterday was very successful from a sporting standpoint, but was attended by scarcely 200 people. The track was an earthen one, and owing to the light shower during the forenoon was very heavy. Otherwise all conditions were favorable.

The programme of athletic events opened at 3:30 o'clock with a 220 yards' run, which was won by A. Brown, P.A.C., in 0:24, with S. Wright, W.S.A.C., a good second. A one-mile running race was won in 4:59 2-5 by Stewart Barr, B.A.A., with T.A. McNally, P.A.C., second. A 400 yards' run trial heats, best two in three, was won by I.J. Coe, Englewood Athletic Club, in 0:56. A handicap one-mile walk resulted in a victory for W. Burhard, P.A.C., W. Berrian, B.A.A., second. Time-7:35 2-5. A half-mile handicap run was won by E. Hickey, W.S.A.C., in 2:07. J.S. Appleby, M.A.C., made a very fair second.

This was followed by a high-jumping contest, handicapped. The winner was M.O. Sullivan, P.A.C., with a record of 5 feet 5 inches; D.P. Sullivan was second. The next event was a two-mile run, also handicapped, which was won by E.C. Carter, N.Y.A.C., in 10:01 1-5; P.D. Skellman, M.A.C., scored second. An impromptu 440 yards' race was won by L. Openheimer, A.A.C., and L.J. Coe second. Time- 0:55.

The feature of the day was the attempt of A.A. Jordan, New-York Athletic Club, to break the world's record for 100 yards over eight 3 foot hurdles. The track was very heavy and soft, but considerably down grade, while the standing record of 14 2/5 seconds was made on a level cinder path in midsummer. Jordan's effort yesterday failed to break the record, but he came very close to it in 14 seconds.

The remainder of the day was devoted to dancing and other amusements.

  Collisions In The Fog.

A Steamer Damaged, A Schooner Dismasted, And A Bark Sunk.

The steamship Wyanoke, of the Old Dominion Line, which sailed for Richmond Tuesday, came in collision with the schooner Penobscot below the Scotland Lightship the same evening during the fog. The schooner was dismasted and the Wyanoke's starboard wheel was badly injured. After laying by her until morning the Wyanoke towed the schooner into port. The Penobscot was bound for this port with lumber, and was commanded by Capt. Carter.

According to the officers of the steamship she was sounding her fog signals, while the schooner was making none. Chief Officer Leland, of the Wyanoke, had one of his ribs broken. The steamer's freight and her passengers, 50 in number, were transferred to the Seneca, of the same line, which sailed yesterday afternoon. It will take two weeks to repair the injured wheel of the Wyanoke.

The steamship which ran down the bark Quickstep in the Lower Bay during the fog Tuesday was the Ludwig Holberg, which was bound from this port for Baracoa. She kept on her course. Capt. Morrison and the crew of the Quickstep stood by the wreck in a small boat for several hours yesterday.

The bark Roland, which recently arrived from Pernambuco and was at anchor off Red Hook Tuesday night, was run into during the fog by an unknown sand schooner. Neither vessel was seriously injured.

  The Ocean Disaster. (see the full account with pictures)

It was stated at the White Star office yesterday that the official list of those killed in the Celtic-Britannic collision contained only three names-Jane Robinson, James Timbury, and James Greenalch. It had been understood that Adam Johnson, a Swedish immigrant, was among the killed, but he turned up yesterday morning at the White Star offices and most emphatically asserted that he was not dead. He secured a passage on the Arabic, which sails on Saturday.

An official inquiry into the disaster will be made at the British Consulate in a few days. The findings of this court, together with the sworn statements of the two Captains, will be forwarded to the British Board of Trade. The work of repairing the bows of the injured steamship Celtic was continued yesterday, and the agents think that she will not be delayed more than one trip. The Britannic is being unloaded and will probably be ready to go on the dry dock to-morrow. A number of her passengers and many persons who were to have gone on the Celtic sailed yesterday on the Anchor steamship City of Rome.

  The Elm-Street Extension.

The Board of Street Opening will hold a meeting in the Mayor's Office to-morrow at 2 P.M. The widening and extension of Elm-street will be dicussed.[sic] If Elm-street is extended it is quite probable that Centre-street also will be extended at the northern end. A canvass of the property owners interested in the matter was recently made, and revealed the fact that little more than $200,000 is represented as being against the project, while people representing millions of dollars are for it.

War With The Canadian Pacific

Chicago, May 25.-The Canadian Pacific has not only succeeded in getting the bulk of the sugar traffic from San Francisco to St. Paul and other Eastern points which it is able to reach, but has lately been taking large shipments to Omaha via the Manitoba and the St. Paul and the Omaha Roads. The regular transcontinental lines at first made a rate from San Francisco to Omaha of $1.25 per 100 pounds, but owing to the Canadian Pacific's competition reduced the rate to 75 cents per 100 pounds. The Canadian Pacific then made a rate of .65 cents and managed to keep the business. The direct lines are now determined to force the Canadian Pacific out of the traffic, and to-day put a new tariff in effect, making the rate on sugar from San Francisco to Omaha 60 cents, or 5 cents less than the rate by the Canadian Pacific.

Mount Olivet Church Jubilee

The members of Mount Olivet Baptist Church, 161 West Fifty-third-street, held a grand jubilee last evening, in celebration of the acquirement of the title to their handsome house of worship. Mount Olivet is the leading colored religious society of the city, and the wealth and fashion of the colored residents of New-York were thickly gathered there.

The Rev. D.W. Wisher, Pastor of the church, presided. The exercises consisted of the presentation of the deed by James Pyle, President of the Board of Trustees, of the Southern New-York Baptist Association, and its reception by Thomas H. Wood, President of the Board of Trustees of Mount Olivet Church; reading of the deed by J. Arthur Barrett, Secretary of the church Board of Trustees; report of J.F. Comey, Treasurer of the church, which showed a flattering financial condition; congratulatory address on behalf of the City Mission by the Rev. J.F. Elder, D.D., and addresses by the Rev. R.S. MacArthur, D.D., and other distinguished clergymen. There was also very fine singing by the choir.

New-Jersey

Frederick Kull, who flattened a ball against the forehead of his sweetheart, Julia Miller, in Jersey City, two weeks ago, was formally held for trial by Justice Stilsing yesterday in $1,000 bail.

Charles Carter, the colored man who was accidentally shot in Larkin's shooting gallery, on Newark-avenue, Jersey City, early yesterday morning, by Richard Wallace, a colored friend, died before sunrise. Wallace has not yet been arrested.

Six physicians on the Jersey City Hospital staff have resigned and forwarded their resignations to the Police Board. They are Drs. T.F. Morris, B.A. Watson, J.W. Hunt, J.H. Vondy, A.A. Lutkins, and S.R. Foreman. The cause of their action is the interference of the Police Board in increasing the staff by the appointment of Drs. P. Hummel, I.N. Quimby, W.W. Varick, S.N.W. Stout, J.D. McGill, J. Craig, J.H. Bird, and J.H. Finnerty. By the resignation of the physicians, only two of the old board remain, Drs. Varick and Reeve. The Police Board meets next Tuesday night, when action will be taken upon the resignations.
