Tho charter election for village offlcore at
Now nochelle yesterday wan the liveliest held
In tho village for years The Democrats had
Dm rat
failed to ronomlnolo Thnddous fluids for vii
logo Treasurer for the first time In about a
quarter of I century They nominated In hla
stead Lawrence D Iluntlngton brothorln
law of the Into George W Davids who died of
laudanum poisoning In the Grand Union Hotel
on April 4 and who for ton years had been
noting Treasurer of the vlllago and of tho
School Doan R attorney for his father Thad
dow Tho Republicans nominated Edward
Lambdon a grocer
Before the closing of time polls yesterday Mr
Lnmbden said t TUB HUN reporter I do not
think thorn will bo any trouble about the vii
lago moneys which Gcorgo W Davids held for
his father has taken steps to secure tho village
against any possible loss so that the turning
over of the books and the vlllago money on
hand which Is about t5o to his successor
will probably b a mere formality eUC8or
Mr huntington said The moneys will bo
all right then can b no question about that
Mr fbnloul Davids has unlncumbcrcd prop
erty In this town valued at t750 and ho
would not permit the village to lose anything
In any event
There was considerable opposition to John
O Underbill who ran for Village President on
the Democratic ticket on account of his use of
blue stone In constructing the village drives
conllrlctng vl drive
his opponent was Charles G Hanks I
At 1 clock announcement won made that
Mr Hanks had born elected President by a ma I
jority of 72 votes and that Mr Lambdon had
been elected Treasurer by a majority of 40
Thaddous Davids was reflected Treasurer of
the Hcliool Hoard just a few days before the
death of George W Davids Upon his arrival
from Florida Mr Thaddaua Davids at once
gave new sureties A Hehool Treasurer Them
sureties are George Hnyder of Bnydor Black A
Co and William Murphy of New York city
Each qualified In 1210 making 40 > 00 secu
rity for tho f50l0 01 school funds which George
W Davids had held Hlnce then Mr Davids
liaR honored ovory school draft made upon him
Tho Investigation Into the accounts of tbo
firm of Thaddatts Davids A Co Is I still In
progress It was slid at the William street
ofllco yesterday that Mr Thnddous Davids had
been to III tho past few days tn give much
attention to tho Investigation I was stated
however that tho firm would b capable of
meeting obligations nnd that It halt 30000
worth of paper which the Into George W Davids
had held OH security for loans and tho makers
of which worn perfectly good for tho amount
A relative of Mr Davids said The most that
tho complications that muy have arisen from
George W Davldns management can do will
iii tn cramp Mr Thaddeus Davids for money
torn short time Ho Is worth over 200010
and has 100000 Invested > In tho business He
has therefore the means to straighten over
thing out in u short time and will do so OVCf

and slowly and laboriously printed out a letter
to his mother In England Before 12 oclock
tomorrow ho wrote I shall b In heaven
I was tho Ort letter bo had himself written to
his mother though he has dictated
thouth dictatd many
letters t b sent to her This letter was an
afterthought ho had dictated
as dicttd on Monday
what ho called his last letter to his mother
When daylight came bo stood a long time at the
barred window which made doubly
bd was mao secure
by another network of stout Iron wire Before
him was 1 temporary enclosure made of pine
boards twenty feet wide and thirtytwo long
In which ho Is to b hanged tomorrow morn
Ing An opon space below the gable revealed
the budding branches of a maplo and a patch
of gray cloud At 7 oclock the Sheriff unbolted
tho heavy door and admitted Harry Treglown
tho elder brother of the condemned man The
meeting on the part of James was affectionate I
but natural After the two had been together
an hour James summoned tho Sheriff
Please send for Mrs Morris ho said I
want some ono to comfort me Mrs Morris Is
the author of Iloutledgo She resides near
the jail and bos been a dally visitor to Treg
lown since he was sentenced Before she came
James bade his brother a final croodby and
manifested deeper feeling than he has ever
shown before In the jail Mrs Morris
was with him for a long time and
she returned again In tho afternoon
Treglown refused to see several clergymen
Who ramo from Drew Theological Seminary
The Roy Joseph P Maeaulay pastor of the
Cornlxh Church which Treglown attended In
Port Dram and the Rev J B Faulks of tho
First Methodist Church his spiritual advisor
wore with him at frequent Intervals They de
clare that ian gives good evidence of corner
Men nnd forgives all his enemies Including
Harry James the chief witness and his rival
In murdered Minnie Chergwlns affections

the suvertUlon of James Van Hlso tbo janitor
of tbo Court House In Newark and who It Is be

friends Ho admits that his testimony that he
found Minnie Chergwln nnd Harry James In a
Position to oxclto his jealousy on the n1 of
lImo murder was false as was also his testi
mony that he himself had held Improper Inti
macy with her He las he never saw any
thing about her conduct that was Improper
Ho repeats however his statement time alma
was shot by rushing In between him and
James and that she fell Into tho canal and was
accidentally drowned
On Monday Treglown was baptised into the
Methodist Church On the same day ho was
visited by n Chergwln and her daughter the
twin sister of Minnie He asked their forgive
ness for all the wrong ho had done t tem and
for the false testimony ho had given at the
trial Tim two women forgave him and consented
sented to his request tbat his body should b
burled alongside that of his murdered sweet
heart In the cemetery at Dover
Troglown was sealed at a small deal table
with his back t the window writing when a
reporter saw him at G oclock this evening
Many cigars the gilts of his callers were scat
tered about the table Under hut arm was a
8 < a leaf I of paper which he turned bUr
over He seemed ashamed of this act and
said Oh you may so thistiH nothing In

The gambling ImpleWonU seized by tho
police on Monday nlfht were removed yester
day to the basement of the Police Central Office
for oonTorslifo Into kindling wood a soon a
authority t break than up Is l obtained A
question about the lawfulness of the seizure
was raised yesterday Bon 945 of the Penal
Code says
J person who Ii I required er authorized to arrest any
person for a violation of thefrovliloni of thll chapter
Ii I 1 authorised and repaired to site 1 any table rdo
dice and other apparatus or articles suitable for
ambling purpo fouad In the possession or under She
control of the person arrests
Section 846 says that I the magistrate finds
that the apparatus has been used by the de
fendant for gambling purp sea he must cause
It to bo destroyed or t be delivered to the
District Attorney as the Interest of justice
may require Section 847 lays
Upon conviction ot the defendant the District Attor
ney must cause to be destroyed everything suitable for
ambling purposes la respect whereof the defendant
studs convicted rlp
Commissioner Matthew who Is tho lawyer
In I the Board said yesterday I am of the
opinion that unless an arrest Is l made or
authorized to b made burnt no gambling
apparatus can be mae Bowovor the public
Is so earnestly opposed t gambling that the
police In myfudcment will 0 upheld In sup
pressing It T Boar will sustain tho force
t the < en of its ability I think toJ that
offenders will hesitate long before they bring
suits to recover gambling Implements
When I was suggested to Inspector Byrne
however that tho owner of the captured
gambling apparatus might claim their
apartu I olnln prop
erty on tho ground that It had boon Illegally
taken from them he aid
I wish they would Then I would arrest
them as fast as toy put In their claims The
man who claims as owner any set of the
gambling Implements sized last night by 10
doing proclaims himself the keeper of the
gambling house from which they were token
It would save me great deal of trouble I the
owners In question would claim their property
In that way I would J larn who they are and
then their arrest would I follow In short order
As I Is I I expect soon N > have In custody the
owners laq night of moro than ctpe of tho places raided
