CITY OFFICERS ATTACKED THE CIVIL SERVICE REFORM ASSOCIA? TION ELECTS OFFICERS. MAYOR Wl'RSTER. FIRE COMMISSIONER RRTANT AND CONTROLLER PALMER RECEIVE AT? TENTION". AND ARK SAID TO HAVK EVAIED THK LAW. Thc Civil Service Reform Association, of Prook lyn, hold Its annual meeting last night at Historical Hall. elected officers and listened to a brief address by Its president. William G. Low. and a report by its secretary. Charles Edwards Woodbridge. The only feature of Mr. Ixtxv'tt brief address that Ja espe.-lally noteworthy ls a mild criticism of Mayor Wurster and ex-Park Commissioner Wood? ruff for alleged evasions of the Civil Service lnws. Mayor Wurster poems to be blamed because ho did not prevent Mr. Woodruff from having; a largo number of cm-doycs In Forest Park without re? gard to the Civil Service Intvs. The following officers were elected for the en ruin*; yeur: President. William G. Low; vice-presi? dents, the Rev. Dr. Lyman Abbott, the Rev. Dr. Reese F. Alsop. L'tlinn Allen Doty. C. M. Nichols. Marls Pnckard. William Potts, Edward M. Shep? ard. Alfred T. White. Executive Committee?K. IC. Alden, J. W. Chad? wick. Charles Claghorn. Alexander Forman, J. Warren Greene. Franklin W. Hooper, C. H. liver? more. Frank Lyman, ex-Mayor Charles A. Schleren, Frederick BL Sclienck. Henry Sanger Snow. S. Perry Sturgis, Charles E. Woodbridge, Henry Yonge. Mr. Woodbridge, the secretary, In his report, reviewed the effects of the Civil Service In city, State and nation in the last year. and. referring in detail to the enforcement of Civil Service regu? lations In Brooklyn, took occasion to criticise se? verely S number of the city officials. He attacked former Park Commissioner Woodruff, accusing him of appointing men for political purposes. Fire Commissioner Bryant is criticised In th? report for appointing twenty-nine temporary fire? men in the absence of an eligible list, nnd refus? ing to retire them until compelled to do so hy the courts. The report says lhal a hill ls now pending design ".(I to legalize their appointments, and that, aljhough the bill ls likely to be declared unconsti? tutional, "the incident in itself ls not entirely cre.litchle." Controller Palmer ls bitterly attacked, and one sentence of the report sr.ys that the Controller "has continued to nttack the reform wherever pos? sible, ;ind tims Impair the efficiency of the public service." The report does not undirestlmi'e the attempts made hy most of the officeholders to uphold the Civil Service. With reference to the places In Schedule A af frtcted hy the derision of Judge Keogh, which de? cision has for the last two months deprived nearly two hundred city employes of their pay. Mr. Wood bridge's report says: "If the decision of Justice Keogh ls affirmed, a radical revision of Schedule A must follow, hut lt will be easy for those who now hold their offices without warrant, mid who are flt to remain, to qualify In the legal manner, taking their chances with other citizens, but possessing a distinct ad? vantage In the examinations because of thc experi? ence that they have had. The competitive rules would he ex'ended not only to these higher sub? ordinate positions, but to the county employes, the employes of the Hoard of Elections, the Hridge and the Board of Education. For the latter class a system of examinations not In conflict with tbs fljrs tem now in operation might easily be arranged, as lt has been In Rochester and ls ubout to be in New-York and Buffalo." One of the probably unlntentlonnl evasions of Ihe report ls the neglect to candidly consider and make a recommendation with referent* to the point raised not long ago by Hubert G. Taylor, County Treas urer, who said that his bondsmen would not stay on his bond unless the treasurer had something to say about the selection of his subordinates, who handle the funds of Kings County, for which Mr. Taylor and his bondsmen are responsible. Another feature of *he report which will cause criticism on the part of the frletuls of City Works Commissioner Willis ls the way In which Mr. Wil? lis's administration is put In an unfavorable light In comparison with that of ex-Commissioner White. Mr. Willis's friends assert that his record as Com? missioner haa never been excelled, and they say they can produce the figures to prove lt. IN NEED OF MONEY. DISTRESS CAUSED BY JUSTICE KEOGH'S CIVIL. BBRVICX DECISION. SCHKDCLR A MBN HAYS RKCKlVED NO PAT FOR SEVERAL WEEKS AND Fl'NDS ARE RUN NINO IOW?ttO RELIEF IN SIGHT CNTJL TUB COURT OF AP PFALS IS HEARD FROM. There is much financial distress among those city employes whose salaries ara* being held up because of Justice Keogh's Civil 8ervlce decision. There are upward of one hundred sud seventy of them, and for nearly two months they have been working bul bavo received no pay for January or February. The 170 are persons appointed without competition since the new Constitution went Into effe,-.t on January 1, 1895, and whose places are above the grade of laborers and bel mr that of deputy. Deputy Controller Bowe said yesterday that he thought lt would be two or three months before a decision on Justice Keogh's holding might be ex? pected from the Court of Appeals, whither it ls certain to be taken from the Appellate Division, when the latter has handed down a decision. Dur? ing all this time no money will be paid to Schedule A men. As nearly all ot tho cltv employes live from hand to mouth, many of the Schedule A men art getting to the point at which they can no longer ??stnn<i orr" their butchers and linkers. Home of them say they trill have to quit soon If relief does not come. Mr. Bowe ls of the opinion, however, lhat these men will ba paid ultimately, even if Justice Keogh's decision ls affirmed. Suits In equity, he thinks, would be successful, as the men were appolnte'd under color of law, and are now doing work, which, if not done, would make tho wheels of government atop.

Woodbridge. Feb. 18 (Special).-Menlo Park ha? added another crime to many thnt have been com? mitted there, and the perpetrators have escaped without detection. The hotel of John Welsh, who la seventy years old, was entered hy burglars, and the old mnn, with his aged wife, waa handled roughly. Welsh and his wife live In Murderers' Gully, nt the foot of Menlo Park Hill. The old couple keep a small hotel, nnd by thia means they make their living, and have mnnaged to save a small aum of money. Last night Mr. Welsh retired enrly. leaving his wife to look after the bar business, with Instruc? tions to close the doors at 9:30, but the old woman, anxious to take the last cent, kept open until ll o'clock. Then ahe closed up nnd started for bed As she was about ready for bed ahe henrd the sounds of a vehicle In the dully, nnd within two minutes lt drew up In front of the saloon door. Mrs. Welsh looked from the window of her bed chnmber and saw three men alight from the wagon. They banded on the door with a club nnd demanded that lt be opened. Mrs. Welsh awoke her husband, who got out of bed and went to tho saloon. He Ht the lamp on the bar and then opened the door to admit the three men. They nil rushed In and the biggest man of the three de mnnded whiskey. They were served and drank freely, after which the big man pulled out a five-dollar bill an.l. hand? ing lt to Welsh, said. "Tnke your money out of thnt." The feeble old mnn took the money with trembling band, and opening a door In the Icebox pulled out a big drawer filled with bills, and in his excitement placed lt on tho bar, where the three ruffians could see its contents. At this Juncture the big leader of the three walked lo the end of the bar, and. drawing a revolver from his hip pocket, demanded the money. The old mar., with tears. begged for mercy The robber then drew from his pocket a blackjack nnd dealt Welsh a blow over Um head, Inflicting a severe wound, nnd felled the old man to the floor unconscious. The noise of the fall attracted the attention of Mra. Welsh, who ran to the barroom. As she stepped over tho threshold of the barroom door she also received S blow that rendered her unconscious. While the old couple lay monning on the tloor the marauders thoroughly searched the place from attic lo cellar, carrying away about 8.150 In money, and escaped in the direc? tion of Woodbridge. The ruffians had made good their escape before Mr anal Mrs. Welsh had recovered sufficiently to summon nhl and tell their pitiable story. Murderers' Gully has a reputation which lt has gained within the last five years, anal ls known from one end of Middlesex County to the other. About a year ago "Danny" Dal.ney. a colored mun who lived in the neighborhood of Murderers' Gully, was called from his house In the evening by Jo? seph E|.ps, and found later In the night with his throat cut from ear to ear. Epps ls now serving a s.-ntence for the crime. About two years ago John Dann, n respectable citizen, was driving from Welsh's saloon to his home, one mil.- distant, but in the Gully he was alragged from his buggy and killed. Then his body wu-; placed on the railroad tracks lo corer up the bloody crime. The body of Dunn was found lay Hie trackwalker, but the murderer escaped. A CH1CKES ROSE CAUSED DEATH.

Dr. James M. King will not he the pastor of the Fnlon Methodist Kplseopnl Church, In Weat Forty-e|ghth-st. About two weeks ago Dr. King tock Ihe step which corresponds to a resignation under the rules of the Methodist Kplscopal Church, ty Informing the official Hoard of the I'nlon Church that he should U.kc action to terminate his pastor? ate. This mci is thnt he will Inform the Rlshop that he does not desire reappointment, and lt will only remain for the Conference, which meets this year at Sing Sing In th?- first week of April, to give Ita ofllclal sanction to Dr. King's step, nnd not as? sign him to any pastorate for the coming year. Thero ls no reason to suppose that the Conference will not rSBSJS t Dr. King's wishes In the matter. Dr. King's resignation has been brought about by a desire on lils part to devote all hla time and en? ergy to his work In the National league for the Protection of American Institutions. ThH organiza? tion has for Its objects the securing of constitu? tional and legislative safeguards for the protection of thc common-school system and other American Institutions, an.l to prevent nil sectarian or denom? inational appropriations of public funds. Since Its organization, in 1890, the Rev. Dr. King has been tts general secretary, and taken every opportunity to promote Its Interests. Dr. King ls one of the foremost and best-known ministers in th" Methodist Episcopal Church, and has made his Influence felt along many different lines of church activity. For three years he was pastor of St. John's Methodist Kplscopal Church, In West Flfty-thlrd-st., and when that body united two years ago with the Forty-third 8treet Moth odlst Kplacop.il church, to form the I'nlon Church, the Kev. Dr. King was selected to AU the new pas? torate, nnd has retained thia station up to the present. _-m GROSTER'S MARITAL TROUBLES. "ROCKS lg ROrKS" HE REMINDED HIS WIFE WHEN RUB LEFT HIM. BUT SHE DIDN'T RETCRN. The historic name of Gloster figured tn the dl torce court yesterday. Maurice Glcster, the person sued, k?eps a saloon at Tenth-ave. and Flft!eth-st., nnd the principal reason for whi"h hla wife seeks a separation ls that she was compelled to cook fifty pounds, more or less, of free lunch ivery day. Mrs. Gloster ls still .1 minor, so that she brings her suit through her father, as guardian. She wept on the stand yesterday, when she told her story to Justice Andre.vs. She said she was eighteen years | old when she was married, and frail In body, but almost the Ant thing her husband bought after the ceremony WU a large iron pot, weighing about j thirty pounds. In which she was compelled to cook large pisces of free-lunch meats. When ahe pro? tested against this work to her husband, she said, he replied that "he had not married her to put her In a glass case, and that shed either do the work or leave." Gloster denied his wife's allagatttlSSa, and said that the whole trouble was caused by his mother in-law and his wife's relatives. He did not go out ; at night* to play poker, and leaVS his wife alone, as , Bhe had alleged, he said, although he did sometimes play poker. 1 ?"i-'ven General Scher.ck did that," remarked counsel for the defendant. John Corbett, who was best man nt the wedding of th.- Gloster'. testified that Mrs. Gloater left her husband, and he (the .vitness) was afterward sent by Gloster to effect a reconciliation. Mrs. Gloster. however, said she would rather be in the gutter than live with her husband. "What was the m*-:JaK(* you took to Mrs. Glos? ter'.'" the witness va as asked in ?-ross-examlnatlon. "'Wei!, hs told me to s.iy, 'Socks ls socks; let's come together, old gal,' and that would bring her all right, but ll didn't bring her," was the reply. ALDERMAN OAKLEY MUST WAIT.
