FLOATING DERT' OF THIRD ATKKTB CO.
SYNDICATE'S PLAN* FOR TAKING IT I? AP
PROVED, BIT AGREEMENT HOT HO ICED.
While the Kuhn. Loeb & Co. syndicate's pro
poEaJ for taking up the floating debt of the Third
Avenue Railroad Company has been informally ap
proved by the Board of Directors of the company,
it Is learned that the agreement making the plan
operative has not yet been signed by the parties In
Interest. The rumor was a*ain denied yesterday
by Metropolitan Street Railway Interests that
th <?lr _ c 9c 9 m Pany was contemplating the leasing of
the ♦ Third Avenue, and on * of these men was
quoted as explaining again the reasons why the
Metropolitan did not regard such a lease as de
t 1 -T.HK leadin S reason being, as was printed in
Tne Tribune several days ago. that the present
physical condition of the Third Avenue system
was not satisfactory to the Metropolitan's man
agement. There was a report downtown yester
day that President Vreeland, of the Metropolitan
company, in company with the engineers of the
Third Avenue Company, had just completed a
careful Inspection of the Third Avenue property.
Mr \ reeland. however, said that this rumor was
without foundation.
WESTERX UXIOX BOXD ISSrE.
TO BE USED IX CONSTRUCTING NEW LINES, NOT
IN ACQUIRING TELEPHONE COMPANIES.
The Western Union Telegraph Company ha*
practically coicluded negotiations for the sale to
a syndicate of $10,000,000 of 4% per cent funding and
real estate bonds, part of the proceeds of which
will be applied to the refunding of $761,000 of 6 per
cent bonds due on March 1, and $4,830,000 of 7 per
cent bonds, due or. May 1. The rest will be used
In acquiring net? property, and constructing new
lines. Including the new cables to Cuba. The com
pany has recently been a large purchaser of ex
pensive copper wire, not lung ago placing an order
for twenty-two tons in one block.
A director said yesterday that none of the money
to be receiver from the sale of the new issue wouW
be used in a- •quiring telephone companies.
Western Union held firm yesterday, in the face
of tile announcement of the bond Issue, suffering a
net decline of only 14 per cent for the day.
FEEDS MORE ROOM FOR FILLIXG ORDERS
•WHY THE 'JACKSON ARCHITECTURAL, IRON COM
PANY WILL BUILD AT AL.DINE.
m
The rumor published in the papers of yesterday
that the Jackson Architectural Iron Company, of
No. US East Twenty-eighth-st., this city, would
move its plant to Aldlne. N. J.. was founded on the
fact that this concern has there bought land upon
which it intends to build branch works. The chief
business and the principal offices will remain in
this city.
The iron trade has become so thriving of late
that the company has been compelled to increase
Its facilities for keeping up with the demand. There
is not enoug-h room at its present plant in which to
-xbov« the extra smews* Iron- a*e^ss*ry -to nreet
orders. William H. Jackson, the president, owned
some land at Aldine, and for a long time the com
pany has been thinking of buying more to add to It.
The construction will bepln Immediately, and the
works will be built by midsummer. They will be
equipped with the best of iron machinery, which
will be run by electricity. The company intends to
make the plant the i sat of its kind In the world.
Over fifteen hundred men will be employed, and
the product will be wrought iron for structural pur
poses. The foundry and the artistic departments
will remain in New-York, but soon after the new
plant is started the Twenty-flrßt-st. branch will be
closed.
The report that a trust will be- formed which will
construct and run this proposed plant is denied.
The site for the buildings is only about twelve and
a half miles from New- York. and besides being on
the Lehigh Valley, is near the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad. Ther* are some In Aldine and Cranford
who object to the plan of establishing a big manu
facturing plant in that neighborhood, but others
welcome it as a means of increasing the price of
real estate.
The Jackson Architectural Iron Company has a
capital of $325,000. Its officers are: President. Will
bun H. Jackson: secretary, David Pettigrew; treas
urer, John H. Hankinson; directors, w. H. Jack
son, D. Pettl«T»w: J. H. Hank;- Ebenezer C.
Jackson and Joseph W. Lantry.
RECEIVER FOR BLEI SYXDICATE.
Mortimer Stiefel has been appointed receiver for
the Robert Bl»-: syndicate by Justice Andrews, of
the Supreme Court, in the application of Milton J.
Fechh- who recovered a Judgment against
the concern on January 15 for $1,785. on which there
Is a balance due of $535. The concern was organized
to conduct theatrical enterprises at Koster &
Blal's. The plaintiff asserted on Information and
belief that the company had transferred the lease
of the premises without consideration, and the
business of tne company was being conducted nom
inally in the name of a third party but for the
interest and benefit of certain directors and stock
holders of the company.

WISHES HE HAD BEES' IXDICTED.
COMMISSIONER MORLE SAY 3 THAT THEN
HE COULD HAVE MET HIS AC
CUSERS JN COURT.
United States Commissioner Morle, who was ac
cused by the United Bta:es Grand Jury In Its pre
sentment on Tuesday of irregularities in connection
with the issuing of naturalisation papers, said yes
terday that he wished he had been indicted, so that
ur. opportunity would be afforded to him of going
before the Court and making his accusers prove
their charges. He added:
When the proper time eosaes, however, 1 shall be
heard from. Ihere is absolutely no truth in the
onarges made against me. and they all emanate
from spite on the part of the United "Slates I
Attorney. The presentment was procured by going
down tnto the mire ar;d bringing up filth to throw
at me. I know of certain witnesses who were
themselves Indicted by the Grand Jury havingb«en
called before that body to testify. It Is clear that
if th^y swore falsely In one instance they would
have no compunction "bout swearing falsely in a
second ca.se. I know that *om> j of these witnesses
were promised immunity if they would testify be
fore the Grand Jury. The truth nf the who!- mat
ter will all com*- our seme day The United States
District Attorney was beaten before when he tried
is Commissioner stopped, ani he
will be beaten again on this vindictive charge.
As to the charge against Hoffman, that I
In the business of securing applicants for naturali
zation. I do not believe that is any truer than the
other charges, but that is not my h-isines*. I
speak only for myself, and shall speak openly when
the proper moment comes.
United States District Attorney Petti: said the
presentment spoke for itself. It was the work of
the Grand Jury, and that body was responsi
it. As to Commissioner Morle's statement tnat the
presentment was the work of spite and of a vin
dictive spirit, tjie District Attorney replied:
I have nothing to say to that at all. I am not
the Grard Jury, but am elmply tts Instrument In
the work of helping to secure evidence to lay before
it. Mr. Morle. I suppose, is entitled to h!s opinion,
and I do jiot care to reply to tt.
It was stated yesterday that of the forty-nine in
dictments said to have been found by the Grand
Jury many of them were for naturalisation frauds
ar .Snst men living in Manhattan, and others wer-*
r various offence? against the laws of the United
States.
DETECTIVE DOYLES DEFENCE. .
HIS COUNSEL WILL. ENDEAVOR TO PROVE THAT
HE COULD NOT HAVE FIREP THE BHOT
THAT KILLED MARTIN CABKT.
The chief witness called yesterday morning in
the trial of Detective John Doyle for th.- murder of
Martin Carey, which Is being held in the County
re Judge Hurd. was Police Captain J.
n Corwfn, Doyle's superior officer. James
W. Bldgway. ex-District attorney who is counsel
for Doyle, cross-examined Corwin for two hours.
H- asked him if he had not made extraorriinary
efforts to convict Doyle, whether he had not said.
•'We have enough of them on the force." referring
to Doyle's nationality, and whether he had not
tried to change some of the evidence, in order to
make a better case against Doyle. To each ques
tion Corwin replied, "No."
Mr. Ridgway, in his opening speech for tne de
fence. In the afternoon, declared that he would
prove that Doyle on the night that he went to
Spohr's place did nor have a revolver with him.
that the bullet which was found could not have
lot from the revolver which was found in
the stove; tl-at it would be shown l,hat on the
night of the murder of Martin Carey there was
some one in the saloon other than Doyle who had
fired the fata! shot, and that Doyle could not have
fired the shot which killed Carey, as Miller, who
w.is also shot in the hand, had powder marks on
his hand, and Doyle, who had run upstairs, was
at too great a distance for the powder marks to
be visible.
Spohr. the keeper of the saloon in which
the murder occurred, testified that he did not hear
any shots, but that Miller came back into the
saloon, and. holding up his wounded hand, said:
"Spohr. you nave shot me." This statement cre
ated some stir. The case was continued.

SALARIES CUT AGAIX.
Flushing, Long Island, Feb. ".—The Queens Bor
ough School Board met here yesterday. Com
missioner Maure. of the Teachers' Committee,
reported that notwithstanding the cut In salaries
made by the Board in January, further retrench
ment was necessary in order not to exceed the ap
propriation for HMO. He recommended that the
salary of every high school teacher be cut $I"*'
more, also that all evening schools and free lect
ures be abandoned. This would cause a saving of
19,800. This recommendation was adopted.

Regarding the failure of Governor Roosevelt to
reappoint Dr. Truman J. Backus to the Long Isl

who. resigned from the Commission, it Is said, be
cause Dr. Backus was not reappointed. said yes
terday that he was much surprised to learn that
Dr. Backus was Dot to be reappointed. He had no
Idea that there was any opposition to him or .any
possibility of his not bt-ing appointed. Mr Dutcher
said:
Dr. Backus devoted a* great deal of time to his
office. He generally went down to the hospital on
Saturday and remained over till Sunday. A place
on the Board required that a man «hould have the
time to fulfil the duties of the office, because. If
there is any class of dependents mao need careful
and conscientious men to look after them, it Is cer
tainly the insane.
One of the reasons why I resigned was that It
was impossible for me to give the time that I
should give to the affairs of the Board. I know
nothing about th» Dr. Sylvester investigation to
which Senator Raines refers, as It occurred before
I had any connection with the Board.

A FATAL HIST.
From The Youth's Companion.
Many sportsmen say that no other hunting can
compare in interest and exhilaration with the
stalking of the chamois or the ibex among the
peaks of the snow covered mountains. The danger
of the sport does not lie in the game, but in the
nature of the hunting grounds, and many a hunt-r
has sacrificed his life In the chase. Half a century
ago a gallant young Irishman armed Peyton met
with a terrible experience among the mountains
of India, which he thus describes:
"We arrived In Cashmere and lost no time in get
tir.R into the Wardwan Valley, famous for the
large horn«-d ibex. The country was all under
snow, and «s the snow continued to fall for several
days we were obliged to rem.iin indoors, and Sur
g<-on Wray, who was a splendid musician, amused
the villagers by playing his violin to them.
"At last the sun came out. and we heard several
avalanches slipph down the mountain. Our men
were much averse to going out. and I must say I
thought they were right. However, poor Wray
in a Jocular tone a Lid we 'funked.' This settled
the matter, and out we went.
"We proceeded up the valley about Y en miles
along the hanks of a small river, which divided
the mountains on both sides of It. '.V. saw a fine
h»-rd of m lie Ibex, but In consequence of the heavy
snow we were unable to creep round by a cir
cuitous route and stalk the herd from above.
"So we four spread a blanket in a ravine next
to where the Ibex were and sat down close to
gether upon it. keeping ourselves warm.
"Suddenly we heard a noise like distant thunder;
then spray and stones followed. Our men oaiiett
out. 'An avalanche Is falling!* Although I had
?een several fall*, this seemed to me quite different,
move like ,i landslip. It covered a breadth of at
least one hundred yards, three or four hundred
yards long and fifty or sixty feet In depth.
"This enormous nT'S!" like a small mountain tear-
Ing with Its rook and earth, moved toward us much
too quickly for. us to get out of its way by running
down before It The whole thing looked weird and
supernatural.
"Death stared us In the face. On OUT right side
there was a precipice, which cut off our escape in
that direction. On our left was a Very wide trench,
which separated us from a shoulder of a mountain
large enough to protect us from the approaching
avalanche if we could Jump the chasm and get
shelter under It. •
"I pointed out to my companions our only chance
of escape; by this time the avalanche had ap
proached within fifty or sixty paces of us
"I led the way. made a spring for my life, landed
safely on the side of the chasm and crouched under
ihe shelter of th*- hill, which was only three or four
paces from the side 1 lumped on.
"Looking around, to my horror I saw -my poor
friend Wniy and the other two men dashed for
ward by the avalanche and buried under a moun
tain of srffay. My dear old servant, Abel Khan,
who had all the nerve and uctivlty of an Ibex.. could
hiive jumped the chasm, but the others were in his
way and he had my heavy Lancaster rtn> on his
bark.
"The thought haunts me to this day. Hal he had
a fair run he would have waved his life by -irln"
the chasm as I had lone, although rt wast a big
jump. •
"By thl.s time Putto. Khan, brother of Abe 1 Khan
who had been left to watch tne Ibex atmut a uuar
t«-r of a mile to our left, came to the cave In which
I mid taken shelter. He had witnessed the whole
occurrence and had *een ins brother killed. H
crted most piteously. lamenting over the loss of his
brother and myself, who he thought was killed also
"I called out: Potto, fate has h**n hard upon us'
I am Haft-:'
"He seemed bewildered and cried out: No you
are only the, spirit come beck to tell me! Mv be
loved brother and our young sahib are gone." "
NEW-JERSEY NEWS.
If the oyster were almost anything else than
an oyster. It would bo proper to nay that 't was a
bone of contention in the Legislature before
some of the present members of that body were
born. In fart, a Legislature without oysters
would be more conspicuously a haunted House
than It Is now. It Is the aped and mossy True
penny, of South Jersey, and, despite its ace and
whiskers. It always bobs up serenely. When It
doesn't come from Cumberland County. It comes
from Barnegat Bay. and more than one mem
ber of the Assembly has sat up nights deliber
ating upon It as a stumbling block In his path
to the office of Governor or a seat In Congress.
As a nightmare to South Jersey statesmen, the
devilfish has never been In It with the oyster.
This year it Is the Cumberland County oyster
that is making the trouble, but it is safe to say
that the Barnegat Bay oyster is ready to re
sume business as soon as his Cumberland Coun
ty neighbor retires.
Those discriminating and farsighted politi
cians who know a sparrow from a catbird will
now renew with increased emphasis their pre
viously made assertion that Charles J. Fisk 13
staking out his claim as a candidate for Con
gress. Mr. Fisk has just given a dance in a
barn at his home in Plainfleld. If Mr. Fisk d ; d
not Intend to run for Congress, why should he
at a most auspicious moment give a 'lan in a
barn? Ilia political cleverness in selecting a
barn for a dance Is only exceeded by the astute
ness of the politicians in discovering his inten
tions before he has made them known. Here
after all Jerseymen who desire to run for Con
gress, and who expect their fellow Jerseymen to
rally round them, will not only give a dance, but
will give it in a barn.
It is not often that a defaulting bank cashier
ha? been able to carry his depredations to the
extent of compelling several townships in a
county to ask the Legislature to pass an act
which will enable them to issue bonds in order
again to obtain when they should be needed
the funds which had be^n deposited in a bank
for purposes of public improvement. And
yet this Is precisely what Valentine, the cashtwr
of Oh Middlesex CovJßty Bank. did. although he
had never been regularly elected a." a member
of the House of Assembly, in which the bill for
this purpose has Just be»n introduced. As a
man who was simultaneously a law breaker
and law maker in embryv Valentine is probably
up head.
JERSEY MBN ARE HE\RD.
PASSAIC RIVER IMPROVEMENT DIS
CUSSED BEFORE A HOUSE
COMMITTEE.
Washington. Feb. 7 (Special).— The Mayor and all
but two of the Board of Aldermen of Paterson, all
of the members of the Legislature from Passaic
County. N. J. ; the Secretary of State. ex-Congress
man Cadmus and representatives of all the leading
Industries of Paterson and Passaic. numbering
in all fifty-three, were Introduced to the River and
Harbor Committee of the House at 11 o'clock this
morning by Representative Stewart.
In his introductory remarks Mr. Stewart said fa
cetiously that two carloads of delegates had been
necessarily left in Baltimore. The engineer who
had made the survey in his report had said that
no more commanding project had ever come before
him. Mr. wart described the situation, history
and trade advantages of Peterson. His own Con
gress district had 25.000 people engaged in the silk
Industry alone. Large locomotive work 3 there sup
plied a great part of this country and many for
eign countries with engines and machinery. Be
sides there were large rolling mills and an im
portant linen factory. The maximum cost of the
proposed improvement was J&W.GOO. He explained
the removal of the Dundee Dam obstacle to the
improvement.
Mayor Hinchliffe. who followed, said Paterson
was the third cUy in size in the State. It needed
relief in the matter of freights. The Improvement
had been agitated for fifty years, but modestly.
and now '• was necessary to press the question
earnestly.
Engineer Balkeley pointed out the varying depths
of water on the map. The cost of the proposed
canal, depending on which side of the river it was
due. would be from MMM to $S0"- The dam was
worth SZSO.6M toward the project, and it was pro
posed to give the Government its use with the nec
essary land on which to construct the work. He
said the manufacturing interests of the two cit
ies amounted to $62,500,000. This comprehended
Xewark. The total trade was over a million tons
a year, about one-half of it with Xew-York. Pas
sale's tonnage by water was 400,0»X> a year.
Secretary Wurts and several others were also
heard.
RRYAX DEMOCRATS IGSORKD.
UXION COUNTY CLUB OF THE LAST CAM
PAIGN' NOT INVITED TO PLAIN'FIELD.
Elizabeth. Feb. 7 (Special).— None of the officers or
members of the Bryan and Sewall Democratic Club
of Union County in IS?6 received an invitation to
attend the reception to Colonel Bryan at Plainfleld
this afternoon, and as a consequence they are
highly indignant at being slighted. The club was
one of the first to be organized in 159«5 to support
the Nebraska candidate.
Now its members say that men who were traitors
to Bryan, free silver and th^ Chicag-o platform in
that year were honored with invitations to meet
him on his first public appearance in Union County,
while the old guard was ignored. They declare that
should Bryan ever become President these men
would be the first to push themselves forward for
offices.
The officers of the Bryan and S«-wall Club held a
secret meeting last night and decided to stay away
from the meeting at Plainri.il The club proposes
to Rive i two dollar dinner here next month, when
the members will retaliate on the Plainfleld men.

water plant will be held In the City Hall. Jersey
City, this evening. The spe-lal election, when th»
citizens will ratify or reject the proposition to ptir
chase the plant, will be held next Tuesday. Sots*
opposition has developed recently, and at the meet
ing of the Board of Finance yesterday the Cora
missioners talked on the subject and declared as a
matter of economy the plant should be bought and
the city should control its own supply. Commis
sioner Ringle said that the opposition to the buying
of the plant must have teen started by red em

would he benefited by the city buying it.* water by
the million gallons. Th« ct:y 15 now paying about
$400.QV> a year, he said. for water, and would at the

$30.00rt the first year, and this having would be m
crease! each year, and at the exniration of twenty
years, the tini» of the contract if the city buys by c
the million gallons, the city will have saved enough,
to extinguish the debt incurred in the purchase at
the plant. The other members' of the Board ex
pressed similar sentiments, and declared that It
was a simple matter of mathematics to determine
it is for the best interests of the city to buy tie.
plant, and that every citizpn who considers the best
