IN DWELLING HOUSE Fire caused damage? estimated at $1,500 to a dwelling Howie _ occupied by Mr, and Mrs, Daniel Collins at the corner of Lehlgn street and Gates avenue at 8:45 o'ctacJc last night The fire, 'wb.itsa started in a clothes closet on the second floor of the dwelling, was extinguished in about 30 minutes. No one was in- the house when the blaze started. The flames were seen • by a lasjserby i*JM» torned in the Both Soft and^Anthracita i alarm. Two south rooms on the up- per floor and the* hallway were badly VWIetle, HA Likely to \Be \Be\-' liev«d at Present. p& pparety gainin to week. Judging 1 froih with ' Geneva dealers the tion is foj 1 from favorable. \Hardly enough to speak of,' l hih t\ i intervlewi coal sltua Hardly enough to speak of, is the reply which comes to\ inquiries of whether the dealer has any coal on hand or not. The local dealers say they are not entirely without coal at fie fwesetat time, having been able to get one or two cars at long intervals. There Is equal shortage of both soft and hard coal, according to the deal- ers. It Is beli«vedt-by Oeneva dealers that relief from the present shortage wil undoubtedly come with the closing ot 'ho navigation, season.

A day's program was taken up, showing the relation of work and piny, together with the splendid results ob tallied through iiand-work. There was first j a morning ci-rule, a pooin In -which oil joined, singing; a talk on some current event, facts about tho rlty in which tho child lives; £ur hintoi y there was a presentation in story loim of certain facts about the T'nltpd KUtes jfnd other countries; the laiiKunge work wa» mostly oral; «?po- elnl utrc-ftH was laid on physical pxer- CIBP; Kamr>fl that were cducallonul; puzzles, wliich bruuglit faetg together unooiiBoiouBly \jabout the last W£fek of November, XJn- \~TlT\tTia^ Tinier tho' prospect of a great- er shipment of coal into thia city is unlooked for. The last few weeks of warm weather have been a boon to the householder who Jias looked with despair on an empty coal bin. If present good weather continues through the coming month, dealer* feel confident that the coal situation will have cleared up appreciably and that they will be able to meet the demand with 4he coming of colder days. \I Bffiiro that ^ersey-Glty will be able to build about $4,000,000 worth oi houses, and If tho legislation Is fcrorop'tly passed these structures will bo ready early next year,\ said the Commissioner. \Each will accoramo- .dfcte two families. There will bo four square blocks of them, and 400 fami- lies will ocenpy them. They won't #oivo the problem, of course, but they Will help. Will Reinvest Money. \This Is going to be a sort of revolv- ing fund, for, when a house is sold, the money will be reinvested In more buildings, and when those new build- ings are disposed of we will put the money again to worlc. There will be no politics in this building project. Sha contracts will go to the lowest :tUdder, and the houses sold to the Isjghest bidder. Where wo rent, the Apartment will be designated by lot. ifou can't be fairer than that. We are -COlng to take care of Jersey City people first, and after we have taken fire of them nil—If we ever do—New lorkers can have a chance.

Tho audlonce was not large, but Black\ stone's work of mystification with carjio and other objects met with hearty applause. One of the best aets perhaps, al- though apparently the simplest, was the antics of a handkerchief borrowed in the audience. At the will of the' magician, the handkerchief, danced all over the stage, \shimmied\ and jump- ed like a living thing.
