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

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
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
The report does not undirestlmi'e the attempts
made hy most of the officeholders to uphold the
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.

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

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,

AN OLD MAN AND HIS WIFE P.RFTALLY
ATTACk'ED BY RIFFIAN8 IN A BARROOM.
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
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.

THE REV. DR. J. SI. RING TO RESIGN.
HE DECIDES TO GIVE IT HIS PASTORAL DPTIE8
IN ORDER TO DEVOTE "Big TIME TO TIIE
NATIONAL I.K'V'K FOR THE PROTEC?
TION OF american INHTlTFTIONfl.
It became known yesterday that Hfter April 1 the
Rev. 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
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
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.
