Tbo Police Board met yesterday for tha flrtt
time since Mayor Strong recommended Commis
sioner Parker's removal to tha Governor. Mr.
Parker came Into the board room smiling, and
apparently teemed little worried about Mayor
Strung1! action In tha caae. The Commissioner!
bad a large amount ot routine traslnttj before
them. Col. Grant submitted his report In Mo
Laughlln's case, which recited merely tho pro
ceedings to which the Inspector bad been sub
ject Ho said be was nnablo to dotermlno
whether the Inspector could be put on trial by
the board, as ho believed the choree against Mo
iAuehlln was outlawed. Ho recommended that
tho Corporation Counsel's advice should bo
asked In the .matter. Theboard decided to re
fer CoL Grant's report to tho'Coporatlon Counsel.
Chief Conlln made a report to the board rela
tlre to the raid at tho Nowmarket, when all the
persons In tho place were arrested, in which he
said: "As to the instructions of the Magistrate
who Issued the warrants for tho raid, I would
state that I directed both Acting Inspector liar
ley and Copt Chapman to ask him whether they
should arrest all tho porsons found In the place,
or only those named In tho warrants, and their
reports to me on that subject, which I transmit
herewith, show that tho instructions of tho
Magistrate woro to tho effort that tho warrants
, t ..... called for the arrest of all the persons In tho
K '"IfP f j place,"

i ?N'M "I do not care to contradict that offhand,"
i 'Mil '" gald Commissioner Androws after the Chief's re-
i il'.OIs . port had been rood, "but Magistrate Cornell
' ?M P! has told mo on several occasions that his orders
III lili ' wcro not to nrrc8t ovcrr ono m tho P'Rce-"
J pj'siH Mr. Itoosovolt said tho Magistrate had also
ijf'j'' told him tho same. Ho added that Capt. Chnp-
ifjj man had told him that Maglstrato Cornoll's In-
;. RPj etntctions wcro to arrest every ono In tho place
pi fj)l Mr. Andrews thought that somo action should
ill I ' bo taken to caution tho forco airnlnst u rcpotl-
W(j , tlonof such wholcsalo arrests. Ho mild that tho
I III pollco should pay particular attention to tho ln-
I ill structlons given by the Mnglstratos.
JSJI President Roosevelt said It appeared to him
MM : that It would lo a mistnko hereafter to toko all
fljl , persons In a Heonscd placu, when they might
in I have gono In Innocently.
Ill j Col. Grant sold that tho man who ran tho Sow-
JjjH - market was a bad fellow, and that the pollco
Km t should go for plarcs of the kind, and that the
Mil i only way to stop them was to keep pooplo from
Ml . going in there. ..... ... j ,.u
R(t . Mr. Andrews remarked that ho differed with
Ij'l CoL Grant, nnd ho moved that fomo action
Ijil ' should bo taken by the board to let tho pollco
I fl! ' know that, hereafter, they should uso somo dis-
!.l Lilt ; qrctlon in making raids of this kind,
rfjil I Commissioner Parker asserted that there waa
; 1,'jij I no need to tako any action. He suid that Buf
fi 't.'Sil ' flcient notlco had been given to tho matter, and
f tl' frl .i that the police would bo careful in tho future.
I ill "h "If they overstep tho lino lot them suffer tho
'' ,'i ill consequences," added Mr. Parkor. Mr. Parker
s R'l i alo contended that there was no ovldonce that
! ' 1 (Si! ,' tho police dlsotieyrd tho Magistrate's lnstruc
,'jti tlons. "Tho Mngistrato clolmud tbqydld and
. rW . they claimed they didn't." said M Parkor.
'll i "Tho statements are conflicting."
I 111 Mr. Itoosuvclt said that several persons who
, f It ' had gone Innocently Into the Nowmarket and
t if (31 woro arrested hud complained to him, and ho
11 I ' believed that the board ought to take some
' lll'l a action. Mr. Parker demurred and voted oguinst
5 J "'lllll V a resolution offered by Mr. Androws that the
' I l'l r Chief bo directed to caution all policemen to
' Ijjl & obscrvo and follow strictly the instructions and
.1 Hi! ilk orders given by City Magistrates relative to tho
I ' I Rl " nrrest of persons found in disorderly houses or
j. 'ISIiiV other places raided by the police. The resolu
: b "l flif tion ww adoptoil, Mr. Parker alone voting no.

The class In parliamentary law of the
Women's Club In Jersey City li making very
satisfactory progress under tha tuition of Miss
Fields. At a recent mooting the class was
divided into committees of five and each com
mittee was instructed to prepare a constitution
for an Imaginary society to establish and con
duct an industrial university for women. For
parliamentary practlco a constitution prepared
by ono of the committees was submitted and dis
cussed at a sosslon of tho class on Tuesday after
noon. Miss Fields solocted Mrs. Elmor Neal for
Chairman of the meeting of tho supposed society
and Miss Clerihew for Recording Secretary.
With the air of a veteran presiding officer Mrs.
Neal called tho meeting to order and called for
the report of the first commlttco. Mrs. Camp
bell, Chairman of that committee, waa about to
hand up tho report when Miss Fields suggested
that the proper way was to road It first and then
pass It up to the Secretary. Mrs. Campbell read
tho constitution In a dear, firm voice.
"Now," said Miss Fields, "will some one move
that the report be considered seriatim I" Miss
Fields explained tho moaning ot tho word sort
atlm. "I move." sold Mrs. Forman, "that tho report
be considered seriatim."
"You should first address tho Chair,' cor
rected Miss Fields.
"Oh, yes," said Mrs. Forman laughing, "I
"I move that this report be considered seri
atim." The motion was seconded and carried. Tho
Secretary read tho first article of the constitu
tion, "that this society bo railed the Woman's
Industrial Loague of Jorsoy City."
Mrs. Charles Vail moved to amend by substi
tuting "Eureka" as tho name.
" llovo you your second I" asked Miss Fields.
Mrs. Vail whispered to Mrs. John Hilton, who
wob sitting next to her, and Mrs. Hilton said:
" I second tho motion."
" The seconnd should always rise," said Miss

on the question.

" It seems pedantio to use Latin when English
An animated and interesting debate followed,
in which Mrs. George Hough, Mrs. Manning
Stlres, Miss Barber, and Miss Frost took sides
for or against the proposed Latin motto.
"Madame Chairman," said Miss Cecelia
"Miss Gaines." responded Mrs. Neal.
" I move to amend the amendment by making

Miss Fields absent-mindedly proposed another
amendment and the entire class looked at her in

" I rise to a point of order. I thought you

Fields, correcting the speaker.
"Very well, then," resumed Mrs. Weart;
" what I want to say Is, that you can't hnvo an
amendment to the amendment to the amend
ment." " Quite right." said Miss Fields. " I subside."
As It was growing late the other articles of the
constitution were discussed and disposed of hur-
,ricdly, excepting the one relating to the oftlrcrs.
That and tne articles on the duties of officers
will be taken up at the next meeting.

Methods susd Peculiarities of the Lata Mary
Ann Smith or Sewark.
Mrs. Mary Ann Smith, whose death on Tues
day was told of in yesterday's Son, was un
doubtedly the best-known business woman in
Newark, as well as one ot the wealthiest She
lived at 013 Market street Her personal estate
is valued at half a million, and it Is said she
owned nearly all the buildings in Chambers
street as well as several houses In Orango. Sho
was born In County Cavan, Ireland, in 1820.
She went to Newark In the latter part of 1817,
and three years later sho was married, her hus
band being a boss carpenter. Soon after her
marriage sho opened a small grocery In Cham
bers street, and thus laid tho foundation of her
It la said that for a long tlmo she walked from
Nowark to Jcrsoy City every night carrying on
her back the provisions for the following day's
business. In 1872 her husband died, and a few
years later sho abandoned her grocery buslnoss
and turned her attention to tho glass trade. In
which Bho bad a small Interest and in which
sho saw a brilliant future.
It was not long before shn bad full control of
thoglasB works, buying out her son Philip, who
up to that time bad been tho bead of tho firm,
but who had not been ublo to place It upon a
paying basis. As soon as Mrs. Smith took pos
session of her now property sho renewed the
ontlro factory. Modern machlnory and equip
ments wero Introduced, nnd nono but tho most
skilled workmen employed. Hor business rivals
fought her fiercely, but sho kept up the battle
until they were driven to thewnll and sho con
trolled the entire glass trado In Newark. All
her purchases ot materials and utonslls
wero mado on a cash basis. Sho never
asked for credit As tho years wont by her
business Increased, and hor last daya saw ber

Bevelling Works, one of the largest of its kind
in this country. Her vigilance over tho factory
was nover relaxed. Dally sho went the rounds
of the works, and she remained often late Into
tho night at her office looking over the books
and orders. Her six sons were employed in tho
factory, Thomas Smith, the youngest having
her power of attorney, and as such signing her
It is said that thoso in Mrs. Smith's employ
never had a cause for complaint for although
she made them work she paid the hlghost wages

owed Mrs. Gcergtana Shrady and young Poor

testified that sho know Gibson and had em
ployed him through a Jersey City lawyor named
Leonard to got ovldcnce in a divorce caso sho
brought against her husband. This woman was
Mrs. Maria Zuckert, wlfo ot Dr. Julius Zuckert
of 233 Broadway. Gibson donled knowing Mrs.
Yestordny tho dofonco put a number of wit
nesses on tho stand for tho purposo of trying to
provo conspiracy on tho part of the prosecution,
claiming that tho Wanamaker political faction
in Pennsylvania was trying to " railroad" Gib
son because Gibson had collected tho evidence
on which ono of tho Wanamakor Senatorial
campaigners had boon Indicted In Harrlsburg
last January. Tho first of theso wltncssos
called yesterday was Louis Wlcn. Ho said ho
was a private detective. Ho contradicted the
tosttmonyof Mrs. Zuckert by saying that ho
waa tho man who was employed by her to got
ovidonco In her dlvorco caso.
"Gibson was nover employed In that case,"
said the witness, "but there was a man who
resembled Gibson. Ho was known as Dotootivo
Bolon. Ho Is hero In court now and looks a
great deal like Gibson. Lawyor Leonard em
ployed us two In this caso, but Gibson was not
Lawyer Leonard's son, Frank, testified that
his father had tho Zuckert divorce case and hod
employed two private detectives, but that
neither of them was Gibson.
After recess Mrs. Zuckert was recalled to the
witness stand by Lawyor Coloman, who asked
hor If sho had not boon mistaken, mixing Gibson
up with Bolen, tho man ho rcsomblod.
" I am not mistaken," said Mrs. Zuckert
v" Didn't you pass Bolon on tho stairs of this
building to-day and tell your daughter that you
had mixed tho men up I'1
"I did not"
The Assistant District Attorney then brought

Zuckert in tho lobby of tho Criminal Court

tioned her about hor Identification of Gibson.
Coloman said that ho know that Mrs. Zuckert

her In the hall with the man Bolen, whom sho
had employed and who resembled Gibson.
Mrs. Mamlo Clark, a prlvnte detective, was
callod to tho stand and testified that she was In

ert and her daughtor passed Bolen on tho stairs.
"Mrs. Zuckert remarked to her daughter that
she had mado a mistake," said tho witness.
"She told her daughter that sho believed that

Mrs. Zuckert went back on tho witness stand
and denied this.
LADIES' CLUB IX STRAITS.
The Organisation on the Verge or Collapse
What Has Led to This.
Tho Ladies' Club of Now York, which has
headquarters at 28 East Twenty-second street
is threatened with dissolution by reason of an
Increasing number of resignations and the conse
quent loss of revenue. The club, according to
Mrs. Henry Sbelton, tho President has nover
been really prosperous, and tha recent hard
times hare made It simply Impossible for tho or
ganization to go on. Tho New York Ladles'
Club was organized In 1B80 by a number of
fashionable women headed by Mrs. John King
Van Rensselaer. It was started on tho proprie
tary plan, with tho same object In view as the
Alexandra Club of London, namely, to provide
for women living out of town a place where
they could Btop while in Now York shopping or
on other missions.
It was also designed that tha club should be a
regular social organization and be open at all
timee for tho entertainment of members. The
club started with a membership of thirty-five,
and In throe months increased this to 300. The
dues at first wero placed at f 10 n year. Members
In addition to this paid for their rooms and
meals. From tho first this was not found to
yield rovenuo'aufUclcnt to meet expenses, and the
conscauenco was an annual deficit which Mrs.
Shelton, the President had to meet
The dues have been raised twice since Its or
ganization, once to $20 and again to 930. By a
prorisiqn ot tho constltutlontho charter mem
bers paid only $10. This resulted in somo dis
sension. A year ago the club bad 400 members,
but that number has now dwindled to 2S0. Of
these 150 pay $10 dues and the others pay $30.
The revenue has materially decreased, and It
was decided a short time ago to give up the
present club houso on May 1 and practically dis
solve the club. A number of tho women, how.
over, novo agreed to work during the summer
and. If possible, gat 300 members pledged for
three years, tho dues to bo $30. If thoy are suc
cessful a smallor houso will bo token and tho
Miss Shelton, ono of the members and the
daughter of the President of the club, said yes
terday that sho did not think tho idea of the
club was popular enough to Insure its reorgan
ization. " Women," she sold, " have not the business
principles of men, as we found after the club
was organized. A number of women who ap
peared to bo earnest In the club's support re
signed after they had been In it only two months.
Tho class who belong to tho club are not the
kind who are at a loss for friends to visit here,
and for that reason tho club has failed some
what In its main object. Women do not aa a
rule frequent a club house as men do, and so I
suppose many of them thought that thoy were
not gottlng much for their money and resigned.
" It was suggested that wo havo tho Colonial
Dames moot here, or some other such woman's
society, but I hardly think it would do. The
Sroposal to unite with Uio Town and Country
lub, of which Mrs. Ives is tho President, was
also rejected. JuBt what will bo tho outcome I
cannot sny, as everything Is In such a chaotlo
state at present It wo succeed In getting the
300 members we will probably reorganize, nut I
do not think the Idea of tho club a popular one,
or one which will ever moet with tho success
that was anticipated for it"
