The investigation into the charges of
immorality against Rabbi Scliuhl at
the synagogue, which wns adjourned
from last night until this morning at

Monday night, as some of tho counsel
objected to conducting the proceedings
on the Sabbath. The written state
ment of Alex Sanger, tho merchant
prince, now absent in New York,
which was rejected by the investigat
ing board, is very damaging to Rabbi
Scliuhl, being coroborativo to the evi
dence already adduced to tho effect
that the rabbi hnd confessed to being
guilty of the charges preferred against
him as to criminal intimacy with
Flora Pratt. The feeling among tho
two vines of tho Hebrews has be
come so bilter as to produce the most
extreme personal feeling, and in some
instances personal dillictilties.

Judge Mnsou to-ilny received Comp

tion recently submitted from tills
county relative to the taxation of St.
Mary's Catholic college. Several
Catholics forwarded affidavits setting
forth that the buildings were exclu
sively devoted to educational
purposes, upon which showing
tlie comptroller was Informed that
the bulldincs were not taxable.
Jud&c Mat-on replied truthfully, rep
resenting that the buildings wero used
for educational purposes, butalbo as a
boarding establishment for scholars
and teachers, and wero thus also used
as tho residence of the proprietors or
managers of tho bchool. Tho comp
troller says that whether the managers
of tho school are tho actual owners of
tho property or not, does not
alter tho fact of such buildings
being used as n residence
us well as for educational purposes,
and they aro therefore taxable, and
their assessment was according to law.
