Jersey.
The graduating students, the faculty, the uni
versity trustees and the council assembled in the
library at 10 o'clock. l>-d by Charles Lincoln
Hall, pre.lien: of the senior class, they proceeded
to the gymnasium. The column of black caps and
gowns was rel;e\ed here, and there by a touch of
color when the wind blew aside the gowns of the.
girl students and showed their white dresses.
The faculty, however, was resplendent in academic
regalia. The brilliant -orance and black of Prince
ton mingled with the crimson of Harvard, and
here and there were ; to be seen the Dartmouth
preen and the purple of Amherf-t plainly showing
The alma maters of the professors. Professor C. F.
Chandler -wore the scarlet gown of Oxford, while
Professors Brander Matt •■■,(? and Conn were no

JEROME HEARING ENDS
PIERCE COXSIMES DA T.
District Attorney Tells Why He
Treated Case Flippantly.
[By Ti>l»gTaph to The Tribune.]
Eliznbethtbxvn. N. V . May 27. -The hearing of
the charges of the KMn« committee r.galnst District
Attorney Jerome was finished here to-day, frank
lin Pierce, counsel for the committee, spent prac
tically the entire day summing up his case, but
just before the close Mr. Jerome »j>oke for a few
moments, explaining his flippant attitude through
out the hearing, t'ommfssiont r Hand wi!l prob
ably have his report ready for the Governor by
June IS.
Mr. Pierce said to-night that if Mr Jerome was
not removed as a result of this hearing new
charges would be prewired against him. based on
hi^s- throwing dice with the 'Ryan boys" for $1 a
throw and drinks, and his dinners with E. R.
Thomas and William R. Montgomery.
"'.Jerome is a menace to the morals of New York
City." said Mr. Pierce, "and he should be removed
from ofPce anyhow. We will keep up the fight."
Mr. Jerome was aTiiwd of a long list of serious
"i-rimes" of both omission and commission to-day,
and Mr. Fierce "spread it on thick," while the r>i.">
trict Attorney listened with a nonchalant air,
sometimes <=;rol!ir;r >ut to smoke r» cigarette. Ac
cording to Mr. Pierce. District Attorney Jerome
w ts the "worst kind of an anarchist." a would-be
destroyer nnd debauchfr of th» "sacred grand jury
system " a perverter of the morals nf the youth of
N'-« STork. and many nior^ things or. this order.
The President was several times referred to by
(■nuns' 1 ! ( ince Mr. Pierre said that were he now
Governoi of this state hp would remove Mr. Je
rome quicker- than he dirt Mr. Gardiner. Another
time he referred to him as a great, anarchist. Mr.
Pierce said he was no pmsimist, and with the same
breath he asserted that all American institutions
and everything else were going rapidly to the devil.
The lawyer spoke with great earnestness. j?qth
sides will have until June 10 to file supplements
papers.
Mr Jerome and Francis P. Garvan; his assistant,
left the Hotel Windsor in the touring car of Mr.
Frank with William B. Van Ing<?n this afternoon.
The two last men mentioned were members of the
January grand jury, which Investigated the Ice
Trust and the affairs of the Metropolitan Street
Railway Company. They are friends of the District
Attorney, and have been here since Mr. Jerome
came up. a fact which furnished Mr. Pierce with
ammunition for saying "that Jerome had the grand
jurors so entirely under his control that they fol
lowed him from plac to place."
It was well toward the end of the day when Mr.
Pierce began his attack on Jerome for "rolling the
bones" with the "Ryan boys" for $1 a throw and
drinks thrown in.
"Where was the place they threw dice in?" asked
Commissioner Hand, amid laughter. "Really, I am
awfully sorry. Mr. Pierce thought you would let
me off if I was penitent," said Jerome.
"If you really were." said Mr. Pierce. Then hf
went on to tell how fond mothers some years aso
named their offsprings after Mr. Jerome. ■.Vow."
he thundered, "news of Jerome's dicing has gone
all over the state, setting a horrible and debasing:
example to the youth of this country. Think of
the infinite harm it must have done!"
"Well, Mr. ' Pierce," interrupted Commissioner
Hand, "if you hadn't brought it out yourself at
on* of the bearings it never would have h«en pub
lished, so it's really you who are responsible for
any effect it may have on the young people."
The crowd shouted.
With reference to his dinner with Mr. Montgom
ery, Mr. Jerome interrupted to say that that din
ner was at Halm's, where they also throv dice.
Only that place Is mostly frequented by justi<re; of
the Supreme Court.
Once, after he had recited what he termed "some
ot Jerome's particularly disgraceful conduct," Mr.
Pierce walked over to Jerome and, shaking his
hand in the latter's face, declared: "Oh. shame!
Where is thy blush?" The effect was lost on Mr.
Jerome, for he only laughed. It was his having
E. R. Thomas as his guest at a dinner at the City
Club, when the latter was under indictment, and
then advising him to change his counsel, that
caused Mr. Pierce to open wide the flood gates of
his wrath and let its boiling waters descend un
siemnr-d on Mr. Jerome's head. After the sum
ming up a number of persons went up and con
gratulated Mr. Jerome.
Mr. Jerome spoke as fellows:
I had Intended to make no reply. tout I do want
to say this, sir. that, though I have perhaps
seemed 1,1 approach the whole matter with a lack
of seriousness, it has no' been at all that I had any
disrespect for your honor or disrespect for pro
ceedings Instituted by the Governor's warrant,
however little 1 may have approved of his judgment
in having a hearing of this character. 1 have ap
proacned it with a feeling th.it it was a matter that
was entitled to be dealt with seriously, and would
have lik»-d to. but all through it, as your honor
has seen, there has run a clear, undefined vein of
humor, so that it was only by putting myself un
der severe restraints when I came to summing up
that ! could have avoided a celebrated quotation
from "Alice In Wonderland":
"The time hap come." the lawyer ss&li, "to talk of
many thlnim.
Of sh'->»!" and ■hips and realing wax. of cabbages an!
kit**,
And wiiv the »ea is t-"tl!ntc hot and »heth»r p!j;n have
wln^».'"
The whole struck me as having a grotesqueness,
knowing the testimony as 1 did, and I have dealt
with it flippantly. I know that, and an apology is
due to you. Sir, for having dealt with it in tint
way: but bear in mind, sir, that, when you fight
for sixteen years to do the right thing in a com
munity; when you have made the bent years of
your life a sacrifice to serving the public; when all
of your opportunities of progress and advancement
in life from the official side have been laid as)
simply because you are working at a political Job
and you have hung on to It when you wanted to
let go; when the day has long passed when It was
any honor or pleasure to you and nothing but your
obligation! to those that put you there required
you to remain there; when the trust which had
been placed in you required you to remain there
and do certain things; when a pack of yelping
hounds conic down the path after you, when you
»cc lying back of the whole thing the egotism of
a broken old man, on the one hand, the unfaithful
ness ot your former assistant, Osborne, and ih<*
antagonism of Shearn and "The New York World"
people; when you nee all of the miserable back
biting and underground dirty work that is being
done to ruin a reputation, a reputation that ha
stayed spotless, man and boy, for forty-nine ear
In the city of Xew York. I could hardly have dare
to have treated this thing seriously because of m
own olandir.g here. Representing myself as attor
ney and ..('ling on no person to represent me. I
could have hardly d<red to have treated the thin?
in any ott>r way. because I couldn't have been
assured of controlling my own feelings.
I should r. t like to tfpr-ak as lam now speaking
but it Is a bitter thing to me to be brought to con
front, to be humiliated (n this way. hen these
charges Hmr reached me they took me back to the
*jk.». ■ > .-<■--. * 1 felt as it ': MM of »m wh,o
stood before the Roman Senate Ith the vouchers
in his hand to show that he had not speculated
with public funds of which he was accused, and
with the proof in his hands he tore them to shreds
ami threw them on Die ground. That is the feeling
with which i approached this natter originally, and
was only chanced as I reflected that the office was
not, mine, thai the office was the office of those
who plnrecl me there by their votes
Remaking a defence 1 consider thai I have de
meaned myself personally, ami perhaps the Mtter
est thing that has come to me in my whole life
ha.« been to stsind up and make a defence — male* a
defence to such materials, to .^uch i-hnrees. after
the life 1 have livf.l there and the work 1 have
don«» there, and I have only done i; because of
those who worked fr-r me rind voted for me and
placed me there ,md whose love and respect I had
and have f..-(!,iy. That is what prompted m* to
m;-ke m> riefence and. if I hare treated thin mat
ter flippantly. l» has K*>en tv?caus? mv own keen
sense of humor has shown me the humorous side
of it. am 1 It ims not been 'ci rrnse I hare lacked
respect for yon. hut it has been because I have
hardly darr^ to tr^nt i' from any other stand
point, because, had I done so. I would not have
been able tc retain any. self-po^sesston.
There were more than one pair -of wet eyes when
Mr. Jerome finished his explanation of the way he
had conducted I himself .it the hearings. Several
times his voice broke from •■motion.
Justice Golf, her, seen at his home. No. SI? West
l<Mth street, last night, and asked what eminent
he bad to make on the references to him which
Mr. Jerome made in his summing up before tr.e
King investigating committee, replied: "I do not
wish to make any statement. I suppose the poor
man is excited v -.., his present position, hut I
have no quarrel with him. However, I have noth
ing to say. If I had p statement to make, I wcuM
not make it at this time."

KEEP MONEY FROM P. S. C.
City to Retain Proceeds from Sale of
Buildings on Subway Routes.
The Mayor. Controller and other members of the
Sinking Fund Commission, which met. yesterday,
were or one mind, and that was that the Public
Service Commission, while it niJjrht consist of
estimable gentlemen, was not the proper custo
dian of funds received from the sal* of buildings
on subway routes. The Controller said that there
was a law for such a request, but he added that
the turning over of th» money was subject to the
' approval of the Sinking Fund Commission.
1 Mr. Metz said there were few buildings to be
I sold now. but that in time many pieces Of property
'• may be bought for subway and other routes and
' the money might amount to million--. He thought
It should go to the sinking fmd-for the lowering
of taxes and not to the Public Service Commis
sion, to help build subways.
••It certainly might amount to millions." said
the Mayor, "and we do not concur in the opinion
of the Public Service Commission."
The Controller was instructed to Inform the
Public Service Commission that the Sinking Fund
Commission would hold on to nil the funds it
could.
The commission approved plans for the new Old
Slip station house, though chief Engineer Withing
ton of the Finance department again criticised
the costliness ct the police stations and the lack
of method in designing them. He said eighty new
station houses are to be bu:!t and that at the
present rate they would cost at (east $6,^),f»v> more
than .they should. The chief engineer said $30,000
could be saved on the Old Slip building, but the
commission approved the plans.
President Ahearn asked for the Delancy street
incinerator and power plant, to use It as an as
phalt making plant, after spending SldVno for
repairs. The request will be taken up later.
