NEW i June Mercadier the southern trick swimmer, swam across the East river yesterday from the Brooklyii navy yard to pier No. 19, East river, on the New York side, a distance of three miles, in forty-five minutes. His arms were bound together with seventy-five feet of rope and two leather straps. In each of hia he held a two pound dumbbell. Steve Brodie, the bridge jumper, attired in Boyton suit, accompanied the swimmer, so as to be at hand in case assistance should be needed. From the handle of Steve's paddle floated a small American notified-the boats in the river to keep at a distance. A of Fear Went Dp. Mercadier fell Into the water at a m. and immediately sank. .Hundreds of eight seers had gathered at the navy yard to see him start, and from them arose a shout of fear lest he should not come to the surface. Their anxieties were ground- less. In less thau a minute he came up. With some apparent difficulty he managed to turn himself in the water back dowu. After drawing in a good supply of air hn commenced his voyage, propelling himself along by drawing bis knees up as far as he could and then suddenly straightening with all his power. The Swimmer On arriving at the New York side Merca- dier was help ashore friends who were expecting him. IJhe water was very cold and the swimmer shivered as he was assisted to a neighboring store, where he wns rubbed dowu. Another Wonderful Feat. A fleet of boats, some of them filled with members of the Varona boat club, followed the swimmers across the river, cheering them with their shouts. On Sunday next Mercadier will attempt to cross the river with both arms and feet tied together by 12S feet of rope. Nearly two thousand people1 waited patiently in Battery park from 11 o'clock yesterday morning until nearly 7 o'clock last night. They were all eager to see Mercadier and Brodie, bat the swimmers did .not put in appearance. Whenever a barrel was seen floating in the river ,a shout would go forth that the swim- mem were coming, and then confusion reigned until the crowd found out that they were mistaken. Steve Brodie. When Brodie was seen, after coming out of the water, he said that he assisted Mer- cadier twice by placing his hand under Mercadier's chin- for a few moments, in order to give him a rest. The first time was while they were crossing under the Brooklyn bridge. The second was just be- fore the two were pulled out on the New York side. Steve thought the feat was a most remarkable one. lie thinks that Mercadier will be successful in the one next Sunday. THEY WANT FREE WOOL. The Wool Consumers' Association Desire the Duty Abolished. BOSTON, June Wool Consumers' association have sent to the senate finance committee at Washington a memorial in which they say; "For the protection of the woolen manufacture of the country, and for Its rescue from a most hampered and; depressed condition, we ask for a great re- duction or the total abolition of the duty on wool." The memorialists proceed with an elaborate argument in favor of this proposition, in the course of which they say: "A free selection from many varieties of wool is essential for the manufacture of the cloths required by the trade, and the exclusion of foreigu wool so interferes with the necessary supply ott raw material as to reduce rather thnn increase the quantity of American wool used." In conclusion the memorialists say: "An all the wool grown in the world is now wanted the American grower could hardly be injured by the readjustment of values. If, at the worst, his product should full slightly in price be would be compensated soon by .the larger and .more certain de- mand from the stimulated and manufacture. The demand for mutton U rapidly increasing, and mutton is afforded in better quality by sheep which produce long wool than by the breeds producing fine wool. The half bred mnttuu sheep's wool in the warp works admirably with the .rejected worsted fibers and Montevideo fleeces in the filling. Thus the mutton flocks would be stimulated through the importation of free raw matvrlalii. The American consumer of woolens and would get better fabrics at prices generally lower." The memorial is signed by the executive committee, Arthur T. Lyman, Lowell Man- ufacturing company, Jesse Metcalf knck company, William B. Wooden, Wey- bosset mills, G. C. Moses, Worumbo Man- ufacturing company, Charles M. Beach, Broad Brook company, T. Q. Browne, An- sabet Manufacturing company, Henry C. Westou and Weston, Whitman Co. Another Arrest In the JUlli. Ojn.
