CAUGHT fX A POOLROOM.
fffW ENTT-EIGHT WOMEN AND FIVE MEN
ARRESTED.
An alleged poolroom, fur women at Nos. 213 and
M West :,■.'•.■:■■■ was entered yesterday by
: Inspector Thompson and Captain Meynlhan, of the
"Weft Twentieth-?: station, and their respective
detective staffs. Five men and twenty-eight women
were placed under arrest. Several trips by the
patrol wagons were necessary to transport the prls
■ oners and paraphernalia seized to the police sta
tion.
The men arrested were John Martin, thirty-five
years old. of No. 7 East One-hundred-and-elghth
et.. employed as a clerk In the alleged poolroom;
Robert Smith, seventy years old. door tender, of
ICo. 41* Bast E!gh:eenth-st.; Daniel Mullens, twen
ty-two years old. of No. 4% Eighth-aye.. assistant
door tender; Antonio I^ampel, proprietor of the
saloon on the ground floor of the buildings known
us the Colonial Hotel, and Joseph Meyers, the al-
Jejred proprietor of the place.
The women gave fictitious names. After being
registered at the West Twentieth-**, station they
■--... taken to the sfereer-st. station and turned
ovtr to the matron there.
The alleged poolroom was on the second floor.
When the police seized the door tender and forced
their way by him he :rie<i to shout an alarm, but
was* choked off. The clerks were Just receiving re
turns from the fourth race at Latonia when the
police shouted that all were under arrest. Meyers
•dived from the window to the roof of an extension
and was tscaping through No. 245 West Seven
teenth-st. when he was seized.
The women made an hysterical scramble for
place? of refuge. Some crowded into closets, others
hid their heads under some hanging- wraps, ostrich
like, imagining they wen concealed. Twelve of
them fell to the floor apparently In a faint. The
police say this was doubtless ■ .lodge on the part
of some. When a poolroom was entered a few days
ago and many women were arrested three that
fainted were allowed to escape. It is believed some
of the twelve bad not forgotten this.
Not a woman in the crowd could be called young.
The majority of them bad gray hair. Nof* one had
anything that looked like a recently purchased
fown. bonnet or wrap. Tney were decidedly rusty.
Hard lines on most of the faces bore testimony to
many attempts to wrest fortune from the gods of
char. •. and their obvious penury told of repeated
failure. - ■
Inspector Thompson said be ad moved on the
place armed with evidence to convict. This was
the result ot five days of work by .Miss Lynch, re
cently a West Tuirty-.--eventh-st. station matron.
«but now a detective. The police found cards on the
Brooklyn. St. Louis and Latonia race?, a number
of telegraph and telephone Instruments and $357
In cafii. bosi<l.-s a $7 ciie;k. Ail ■><■ ■re seized.
The police found that the house at No. MS West
<seventeenth-st. was so connected with No. 243 that
It could he occupied -■(in:!;, in cast- of raid. In it
•were found all th-± necessary devices for a continu
ation of tine game. The raid was made so quickly,
"however, that the old door tender had no time to
press I Ik- concealed electric calls to warn the
people above.
Inspector Thompson was much gratified at what
he terrr.e<i the success of the raid, and said: "We
have evidence to convict in these cases." The
•women 'arrested in a similar raid a few days ago
■were nil the following day in court. In
triecTor Thompson was asked why be had arrested
tne women In view of the Court's decision.
"These women will not be discharged," he said.
"In th« other casa the women were not se"n to
jilny. In ■' I* case our evidence is conclusive."
When the police got to the house some of Cap
tain Mafmibans*s policemen wen not known by
the members of Inspector Thompson's staff, and
Dvtectlve Calvin, of the Inspector's office, caught
Policeman Krowe. of th« West Twentfeth-st. sta
tion, and : laced him under arrest Krowe resisted
and Galvin punched him several times before a
■uniformed patrolman made Krowe's Identity
known.

WO ALIMONY FOR ÜBS. E. B. WARD.
JUSTICE SMYTH DISMISSES HER APPI.ICA
, TION Df DOI'RT OF JURISDICTION*.
Mrs. Victorlno Amelia Hcrault Ward's applica
tion for $5,000 counsel fee and JC,<*>o a month ali
mony while mmmtllll a*r suit for a separation
from Eber Brock Ward, the brother of the Prin
cess Chlmay, ■w i\s denied yesterday by Justice
Smyth In the Supreme Court.
Mr?. \V;^d alleged that her husband had eloped
with another woman, and was in the habit of
carrying a loaded revolver and sleeping with It
under his pillow at night on the pretence that she
intended to Injure him. He had also been In the
habit since their marriage. In September, 1597. of
dr'nklng to excess. Mrt. Ward was a widow
with a fifteen-year-old daughter when she was
married »o the defendant. She alleges that Ward
has written to an uncle of hi?, saying he wished
he had not married her, as be cared more for
Blanch', the daughter. Ward, according to hi?
wife, abandoned h«r In France last July, and re
mained away from her until January. She says
he has treated her cruelly since he returned.
Ward denies the charges of cruelty and Intoxica
tion. He says Mrs. Ward wants to get rid of
him because she is tired of him. Justice Smyth
said:
It Is extremely doubtful whether or not the
Court has jurisdiction. The parties were marrl^.
in the city of I'ariP, France, which the proof shows
w:is then and Is now their place Of residence. The
plaintiff Is a nntive of France, and the ielendant
is neither a resident nor a citizen of this State.
A 1 the tim.» of the service of the summons heroin
both parties were temporarily sojourning In this
city. Neither Intended to become a resident of
this State, or to acquire a residence therein within
the meaning of the Code of Civil Procedure gov
erning actions of this character. The proof shows
conclusively that the plaintiff, who is the wife,
is not destitute of the means of livelihood, nor of
means sufficient to carry on this action. On the
contrary, Fhe Is possessed of a large amount of
property which whp given to her by the defendant,
and she* is the recipient of mean? arising from the
Investment of JBO.(K«J, which sum is invested for
her benefit in property in Chicago. 111. Upon the
merits of the case, as presented upon the mo
tion it is at least doubtful if the plaintiff will in
timately succeed In her action. For these reasons
the motion must be dismissed.
GRAIX GOES UP IN FLAMES.
TWO FIVE STORY BRICK BUILDINGS AND
THEIR CONTENTS DESTROYED BY FIRE.
Fire consumed 125,000 bushels of grain and bran
and two five story brick buildings, all owned by
George E. Ketcham & Co., of Nos. 69 and VI West
End-aye., between 7 a. m. and 9 a. m.. yesterday.
The total loss was estimated at $140,000. The in
surance amounted to $76,000. Nobody was hurt,
hut two large walls fell and firemen suffered from
trie dense black smoke.
Harry Butler, the watchman, discovered the
flames burning fiercely near the gear wheel In the
rear of the big five story building which faces the
New-York Central Railroad yard, at 7a. m. Four
alarms were sent in.
The firemen could not get Into the building. The
three upper floors were without windows, which
necessitated fast work In breaking through the
roof. Twenty men at one point were driven away
by the flames bursting through the roof. They
belonged to Truck No. 4. Water was poured from
dozens of hose lines Into all parts of the building.
The Intense heat swelled ihfl gTaln. Bins hurst
and their contents poured out of the windows,
carrying down burning embers that gave out small
shoots of flame. The north wall gave way In
about an hour from the pressure caused by the
swelling grain. It fell with a crash where a score
of men of Engine Companies Nos. 39, IB and 65 were
at work. The south wall fell a few moments later.
The roof remained by the support of the east an.l
west walls. The flreboats New-Yorker and Zophar
Mills were sent for, but the pier was too far away
for them to work.
At 9 o'clock the tire was completely under con
trol, but still burning. William Kotcham, who
watched the building burn, said he had lost ?4".'«X»
"on the blßckboard," but never in a fire. The
origin of the flames Jb unknown.

THOrGnT TO BE CASE OF MURDER.
MOTORMAN SAYS YOUNG REILLEY'S BODY
WAS COT,P WHEN RUM OVER.
According to James Duffy, of No. 67 R«»id-ave.,
the motorman of the Mnrcy-ave. car. who whs ar
rested for running over Peter K. O'Kellley, at Iler
gen-st. and Franklln-ave. on Sunday morning, the
body of the young man was cold when it was
picked up. From this he advances the theory that
ORellley had been killed, and his body placed on
the car tracks. P. J. O'Reillry, the father of the
dead man, and a brother of Peter F. O'Reill. y. the
moving van proprietor, pays that his sop was quar
relsome when he had been drinking, and Inclines
to the belief that he was murdered.
The young man was at Coney Island on Satur
day night. It Is thought that he may have got
into some trouble on the way home, in a Franklin
ave. car, and that some person In a of re
venge followed and assaulted him after he had left
the car at Bergen-st.
The. police of the Grand-aye. station do not take
much 6tock in this theory, however.
Duffy, the motorman, was held In $2,500 ball yes
terday morning by Magistrate Steers In the Grant
st. court. Charles Smith, the conductor, was .lisa
held for permitting his car to be run at a reckless
Bpeed.
Sorre months ago P. J. O'Rellley, the father of
the dead man, had his foot Injured by being
thrown from his carriage in a collision with a trol
ley car. Blood poisoning set in, and the leg was
amputated near the hip. He now wears an arti
ficial leg, and has a suit for damages penning
ugalnst the railroad company.

FAULT! RIVETS DELAY BRIDGE TrOffff.
O. F. Nichols, assistant engineer in charge of the

bridge will be completed by Aiißust.
The oontmctnrs of the bridge have been directed

fongrt-rFman (Jarrlnrr, who marcherl t>> the

aoniewhen near the heart of the procession, as
he will prolvibly be when the returns of the elec
tion in the lid Congress District come in on the
nlprht of November 2.
Passalc County does not differ from othnr
counties In having a number of candidates for
the Assembly thin year. Assemblyman Lewis,
having served two years, may not be renom
inatrd. He made a splendid record in the
House, but under the two year rule, which does
not always work well, he may be asked to step
aside. Assemblymen Slater and Berry have,
served only one year each In the Legislature, and
It Is i-xpected that they will be renomlnated.
Among the candidates now visible are Captain
J. Krnest Shaw, James Still. Thomas B. Vre^
land and Andrew Foulds. Captain Hnhart
Tuttle, the Covfrnnr's private secretary. Is also
said to bo getting In line. The foregoing is said
to be only a partial list, and that other parts of
the county are yet to be heard from.
State Senators are to be elected next November
In Burllnpton, Cape May, Hunterdon. Middlesex.
Pfissalc and Sussex counties. Of thes? all but
Capo May are now represented by Democrats.
The Republicans expect to be successful in all
but Hunterdon and Sussex, although they do not
feel so sure of Middlesex as they do of the oth
ers. On the other hand, the Democrats profess
to believe that they will carry Hunterdnn,
Middlesex, Passaic and Sussex, and that they
have almost an equal chance of electing a Sen
ator In Burlington. In fact, they are confident
that if the same factional troubles exist there
which prevailed three years ago Burlington
County is as good as counted in the Democratic
column.
E. F. C. Ynunjar, whom the Democrats of New-
Jersey regard favorably as their candidate for
Governor In 1901. la still expanding his business
interests. Within a few days Mr. Tnur.g and
Dennis McLaugrhlin. formerly County Clerk
of Hudson, have purchased the Bergen turn
pike, with the Intention, it is believed, of run
ning a trolley line from Hobokon to Hackensack.
In fact, so keen-sighted a business mpn as« Mr.
Young must have had some prosrresslv^ project
In view when the turnpike was purchased, and
for a trolley line it Is in every way available.
There Is here and there a Democratic news
paper which appears to believe that the chair
man of the New-Jersey Republican State Com
mittee Is not entitled to an individual political
opinion. And yet there Is not a Democrat in
New -Jersey who would not denounce In pict
uresque language and embellish with scare
head punctuation any other Democrat who
should attempt to abridge his prerogative of
free speech.
In "The Congressional Record" for June 0 Is a
speech by Congressman Fowler, of the Ylllth
New-Jersey District, in which he reviews care
fully and elaborately the National Administra
tions under Presidents Harrison. Cleveland and
McKlnley, In so far as these periods have been
reflected In the exchanges of the clearing houses.
Imports and exports, savings banks resources,
and the resources of the National banks. These
matters are so clearly discussed and plainly
tabulated as to show at a glance and In an In
teresting way the financial state of the country
and Its progress industrially during these three
Administrations. Mr. Fowler's speech also
takes up In detail the article by William J.
Bryan In "The North American Review" for
June, and points out the fallacies and the weak
nesses of the various propositions advanced \p§
that progressing backward statesman. Mr.
Fowler shows intelligently and at times satiri
cally exposes Mr. Bryan's Ignorance of the sub
jects that he discusses, or that he plays the
part of the demagogue In suppressing what he
knows to be true. Taking the House Into his
confidence, Mr. Fowler, In one sentence of his
speech, cheerfully asks if It Is not true, fes all
frankness, that "William J. Bryan Is one of the
humbugglPFt humbugs that this country has
ever known."
