Although Held on the Wrong Day The

e22Ptjttn'nk'nB to flndawoy

J$fitifi. Tuesday last under tho
"TnnjnTnljlKrfSn misapprehension that
iijLrT I J it was tho day pro-
ass ijC scribed by tho statute
-,55, for tho registration of
voters for tho Novom-
bcr election. Tlicy say that thoir Chief
Clerk, Sir. Andrews, is entirely to blame.
Tho Election law of 1884, as amended in
1B86, prescribes that tho days of registration
shall bo the last Tuosday of Soptembor, tho
second Tuesday in October and tho Tuesday
occurring two weeks boforo election.
Elaction occurs " tho first Tuosday
lifter tho first Monday in NoTombor." This
year November begins on Tucsdny, thus put
ting eloetion day off to tho furthest limits, tho
8th. Last year it occurred on No v. i, and Chief
Perry of tho Board of Eloctiona.says that Chief
Clerk Andrews in compiling his registry lists
from last year's books, issued his noticos for
tho 18th because it seemed nearest to tho date
of tho last registry in 1880, which fell on
Chief Clerk Andrews declined to talk about
the matter to-day, and, in fact, he and his
force Beemed to bo afraid to give any inform
ation to tho reporters.
Corporation Counsel Almet F. Joncks held
a consultation with Judges Pratt and Cullcn,
of the Supremo Court. Both Justices wero of
opinion that no judicial settlement of
tho question of tho legality of
last Tuesday's registration could bo
obtained until some one with a grievance
S resented it to tho Court. This could bo
one by having a Board of Registry strike
off one of the names registered last Tuosday.
when tho voter whose namo was stricken off
could apply for a mandamus compelling its
This action was thought unnecessary, how
ever, and to-doy Corporation Counsol Jencks
submitted his opinion to Mayor Whitnoy. It
was in effect that the Board of Elections had
made an undoubted .error in fixing last
Tuesday as a day of registry, but that tho
error did not vitiato the registry lists and those
'who has registered would do entitled to
vote. However, this does not reliovo the
Boards of Registry from compliance with tho
law which fixes tho Tuesday two weeks pre
ceding the election on tho last day of regis
try. ' ! they must sit igaln at tho several
poll. os on Tuesday next.
L Benjamin F. Tracy, of tho Court
of A; ..s, was of tho samo opinion. Ho
said:,," lnere can be no trouble unless somo
cantankerous inspoctor of election rofuBcs
tho vote of somo ono who registered last
Tuesday, and even then the trouble would
only come to tho inspector. It is
absurd to suppose that tho whole election in
this great State would bo vitiated by an error
which will deprive no one of tho opportunity
to register, and it is equally absurd
to . suppose that any court would
declare the election void bo
cause citizens acknowledged to be
entitled to vote had been registered on a
wrong day, through no fault of thoir own.
Of courso a defeated candidate might np-
fieal to the courts on tho ground of
his irregularity, but unless ho can
ehow that voters wero doprived of tho
right of franchise by it, or that men who
wore not legal voters had by it been permit
ted to cast their ballots, ho would bo thrown
out of court. The registry is all right, and
it is not at all necessary lor those who op.
peared last Tuesday to go boforo tho Boards
nf Wnfistrv nrnin on next Tucsdav."
The chairmen of tho various Registry Boards
mado their reports to-day to the Board of
Elections, depositing a copy of tho registry
,up to Tuesday night last, when they
supposed their labors had ceased
as Registrars. But each whs informed
that another day of registry must bo
had next Tuesday. Their returns
show that 120,077 citizens have registered, tho
largest number over rccordod in the city ex
cept in 1884, when there wore 127,000 voters
on tho lists. "With an extra day tho latter
'figure should be outdono, and tho result of
the error of tho Board of Elections may be
that Brooklyn will cast a larger vote than
ever before In her history.
At tho headquarters of the Democratic
Campaign Committee an Evenino World ro-
porter was informed that tho most eminent
lawyers of tho party would bo consulted,
and if they wero of opinion that it was
I necessary, tho working comraittco would
take steps to get all Domocratio voters who
were registered last Tuesday to go again to
tho places of registry next Tuesday. Tho
general opinion was that this would bo un
necessary. There Is auothor phaso of tho matter which
is not calculated to delight tho taxpayers of
Brooklyn. Tho places of registry were
rented for four days : three for purposes of
registration and ono for tho eloetion.
They wore rented at a uniform
rate of S5 a day, and tho registrars also
receive by law $5 per day for this service.
An additional exponse will theroforo be sad
died on tho city of about $4,000 for
the 700 registrars, $1,325 in rental for tho
places of registry, making a total extra cost
to tho city on account of tho blunder of tho
Board of Elections of about 5,300. Clerk
Andrews, on whom tho blame is laid, is a Re
publican. Ho has been clork of tho Board of
Elections twelve years.
Tne Board of Elections is non-partisan.
It is composed of Timothy Ferry. President,
and Charles H. Cotton, Republicans, and
ohu GUbertson, Democrat, who wero ap-
Jioiuted by Mayor Low, and Thomas V.
'orter, a Democrat, who was appointed by
Mayor Whitney. Their salary is S2,00
year each and thoir term two years.

County Committee thero was strong condem

The mato then took a hand in tho
struggle and a torriblo battlo followed.
Finally, however, with tho assistonco of tho
survivors of tho orew, who had recovered

powering and binding tho crazy carpenter.
The man was badly woundod, and after the
man was secured, fainted from loss of
blood. The crew then hoisted a signal
of distress, which tho Danish steamer Morso
observed, and, boarding thoJohannes, found
tho prisoner bound, the mato half dead and
tho crow helpless. She immediately took tho
sohooner in tow and arrived hero with hor

In Western Union Have a I.hcly Morn
Ins; (losulp ou the (Street To. Day.
fN Wall streot this
morning for an hour
or moro after the
opening tho contest
betweou tho bull and
bear forces was noth
ing moro than a guo
rilla warfare, in which
tho noisy bids
nnd offers formed
a far moro conspicu
ous fcaturo than tho

gave Beading and Now

and 71, but they woro careful
not to overstep tho mark, and notwithstund
tho fact that Cauimack was down bright and
early in Willard's office thoy refused to bo led
into making heavy sales for tho short account.
The feeling got abroad that cither Gould
or those training with him had put on their
war-paint and wero going into tho
" hiclo tunning business." Gould has
certainly given tho bulls encour
agement by his disavowal of any con
nection with tho recent attacks upon tho
market, and by his constant predictions that
those who wero venturesome enough to put
money into his properties would como out
all right in tho end, Tho scalps
of the shorts in Manhattan was first sought
for and that stock was snddnly put up to
104Jf from 100K at the close yesterday. Then
the shorts in Western Union woro given a livo
ly time, tho price being advanced to 76K and
reports gaining currency that tho acquisition
of tho Commoroial Cablo by tho company
would bo officially announcod shortly. In
order to make tho punishment of tho bears
complete. Missouri l'aciuc rushed up from
SIX to 83X.
When tho Gould stocks dovelopod genuine
strength tho bulls began thoir work in
earnest, and everything on tho list from
New York Central down to ltichmond
Terminal was taken in hand and ad
vanced '1 a 2 per cent. It was rumored
that Armour, 8wift, and tho othorbig Chicago
dealers in meat products, had como into
Sticknoy's stock-yard scheme, and that
in consideration of this, Sticknoy's
Minnesota and Northwestern road
would bo taken out of tho flold
as u disturber of tho peace of tho railr6ad
situation in the Northwest. In othor words,
it was said to foreshadow an early settlement
of tho fight in that section. This
left tho bears without a? leg to stand
on and they tried to cover as host thoy could,
taking caro, however, to inform thoir follow
ing that tho rise would speedily come to an
end and that those Vrho bought now would,
have to pay dearly for their temerity.
Thero was a lively borrowing demand for
stocks. Lake Shore lent flat a 1-128, North
ern Pacific preferred at 1-32, Now York Cen
tral fiat a 1-64 and Chicago, Burlington &
Quinoy at 1-16 a H per cent, per diem for

shares 2 a 8 per cent, for carrying.
Money is easier hero at about 4 per cent, on

lie Furnishes Hall to Appear at the Harlem
Ex-Bnilding Inspeotor William J. Martin,
who waa summarily dismissed for negligence
contributory to the Harlem school disas
ter, surrendered himself at tho Coronors
office at noon totday. Ho had heard of Cor
oner Eidman's warrant for IiIb arrest, and ho
brought with him Christopher Boylan, of 363
East Twentieth street, who was willing to bo
surety for his nppearanco at tho inquest.
Coroner Eidman fixed the ball at $5,000 and
Mr. Boylan signed tho papers.
Martin looked very muoh depressed. Ho
said that his removal was illegal and that he
would sue for reinstatement.
" I waa confused yesterday and made a
mistake; in pleading guilty to neglect in
regard to tho recesses," he said. " The fact
is I told Father Kirner repeatedly that ho
muBt make a twelve-inch wall at tho back of
the recesses instead of an eight-inch wall.
I also told him that he could not build
above the second story until ho got
a permit from the department. lie
went on doing as he liked, howevor,
and the reason I did not act moro promptly
is that I know he had influenco enough to
get the permit.
" Last Saturday I made up my mind that I
could not take tne responsibility of letting
him do as ho liked and mado out a ' violation '
notice I would have turned it in Monday
if I had not been attending a funeral."
When asked br an Eveiuno Would re
porter this morning what action could be
taken against Martin, Coroner Eidman said
that he could give no definite information
until all the facts had been brought out at
the inquest on the bodies of tho victims.
" If the jury find that Martin was criminally
negligent, he said, "I shall commit him to
await the action of tho Grand Jury, although
I remember that a similar, attempt to punish
the negligent Building Inspector in tho Bud
densiek case was futile."

tho understanding that all non-union men
were discharged from the office.
Mr. Smith said that the proprietors of Ger
man offices were taking advantage of the
situation , and were doing all tho work
in English they could secure. These
bosses are members of the Typothetai. and
the Union's officers declare that they throw
every obstacle in the way of a settlement of
the present difficulty for the purpose of get
ting all the English work they can do.
At tho rooms of the Typothetre. Libra
rian Fasko said that applications
continued to come from all over
the United States, and that in
ten days more the offices on strike would be
supplied with men. Many of the applicants,
he said, wero not comnotent to fill
tho vacancies, but quite a number of
good men were secured each day, and they
were equally distributed among tho offices
in order to keep urgent work going.
With regard to the pressmen, it is said that

name of Annlo Ingraham has been associated . aH
witn the identity of the murdered girl at ' H
Rahway, many persons hero recall the strlk ' , JH
ing resemblance of Annio to tho 9H
photograph of tho victim of tha "J
mysterious crime Ex-Chief Fitzgerald, jH
and Detoetlvo Gregory returned from :n
their secret mission at 11.9 last night. '''3,1
They refusod to make knowti tho result of JH
their search for tho alleged murderer ot jH
Annie Ingraham, but left the impression that 'la
tho officers in chargo of tho Central Polios. ''VH
Station at Philadelphia wero working that ' ifH
end of tho cose. .H
It is believed that tho detoctive has run &jH
down tho man who married Annie Ingraham '-H
at Bound Brook on the night of Deo. 7, 1686, jaH
and who followed her when she fled from H
him on tho 8th to Philadelphia. Tho mar. gH
riago was performed by Justico of tho IH

to have identified somo of tho garments worn , 'jnH
by Annlo on that occasion, many of whiob. ' aH
she loft in tho possession of Mary Wilson, !H
with whom sho boarded. iH
The dotectives loft hero at 10 a. it. to-day "fH
in a carriage for Bound Brook, having found ajB
a shoomakor who measured Annlo In- 'B
graham's foot and who also mended
a pair of shoes for hor shortly before her do- j9H
porturo. Thoy returned this afternoon in fl
time to moot Mayor Daly and Marshal iKt
Tookor, of Rahway, for consultation. ' ttgH
The consultation resulted in a dotermina- vH
tion on tho part of Mayor Daly to visit Mary -s.iH
Wilson and William Fisher at Bound Brook. lH
An Evenimo World reporter Becured somo VjLH
important facts from Fitzgerald. Ho said V-jH
that tho books of the employment bureau NH
of John Fitzpatrick, at 82 Greenwich SB
street, Now York, contained an entry H
of tho arrival of Annio Ingraham V
in March', 1886. Sho had landed -jSM
In Pblladelpbia and gone to New York for JfH
employment. Her name was on Fitt- -H
Patrick's books as unemployed for 'jH
two menths when she was hired 9H
by George Martin, of Metuchen, as a servant. rJH
It was on May 4 that sho assaulted Martin, fH
and was arrested as already detailed, thus ae- 'i3H
counting for tho timo. , 'OH
When a photograph of tho murdered girl fH
was shown to Martin to-day ho said that it ,; -tH
recalled Annio Ingraham's face. ;'H
At Bound Brook it was found that Annie LjflH
Ingraham, while boarding at Mrs. Wilson'. ' jH
worked one day in the Emsteins "HB
cloth mills;' and it was hero thai fsMM
she. met Frank Credcford, the man vH
who three days later married her beforo Jos- H
tice Sommers. Credeford was of Urn colled , 'IH
Crawford. He had worked at the Mills for -:;H
six or eight ycaars off and on. Foreman ni.jM
Ryan said, and had been concerned in several JiLLl
fights. i fH
Annie knew him but throo days when, .JH
while under the influence of liquor, 'sho ''xj&H
Eromised to marry him, Mrs. Wilson loaned ?&H
er some underclothing, and this has been TSslB
identiflcd'at Rahway. ' ,:ilH
The ring worn by Annie on tho same ooca- 1
gion was likewise borrowed from Mrs. WU 1l9B
son,' and thiB too has been identified. : LH
When' Annie left suddenly for Philadelphia , !qH
on Deo, 8, Credeford hastened next
day to. Foreman Ryan at tha t-JH
mill and' drow tho wages due him. 'in!
He took the next train for Philadelphia. He - Tfl
was an expert weaver, and found employ- ,:H
ment at a mill in Philadelphia, tho name of ';rjH
which is not yet divulged. Ex-Chief Fits. '-IH
gerald said that ho was being shadowed now. ''H
At 3 o'clock the officers, accompanied by f-JH
Mayor Daly, left here for Bound Brook to KH
have Mrs. Wilson identify and describe soma "J'H
