Tlie village of New Brighton l oxtouds from a little south of St. George both HU ' ways atone tlio shore fur about four mile to M Columbia street. It Is a half n mils more or Hi ork Id width.

It is impossible to V find a resident of New Brighton who will not 1 back his vlllago against anything New York or H New Jersey can produce in tho line of boauty, n ' comfort and convenience. But New Ilriehton is not satisfied with Itself. Tlioro is an ash dump at tho foot of Bard ave I nuo that ought not to bo there. There is lots I of vacant property surrounded by unsightly I fences or no fences At all. There are side 1 walks with grass growing betweon the flogs. 9 There aro occasional breaks in the road beds. I Grass and weeds grow high In some of the gut fi tors. New Brighton Is not porfect, and her M citizens havo organized for improvement ,, About two weoks ago Mrs. Josephine bhaw Iiowoll remarked in n mooting of the charity organization that the citizenssbouldtakesteps 9 to lmprovo appearances, Mrs. Lowell is a sis M Urof Mrs. George William Curtis. The char W try organization of New Brighton was organ m ized by Mrs. Lowell. The mooting at once took IjH up the question of Improvement, and presently m adjourned as a charity olub to organize lmmo- .' diatelyas an improvement club. It all nnp- .'j renedin five minutes as the result of Mrs, , Lowell's remarks. Committeos were appointed .; to see what ought to be done, and a few days ; later tbo village was flooded with circulars .M signod by F. O. iloyd. Albart L. Webster, and 1 M Albert Willcox. Tho circulars proclaimed that W "tho oondltionB of neglect and dilapidation Wt which aro socurlng a constantly increasing ffl foothold in New Brighton, and which are do 's prlvlngusof our best olass ot residents, call Jjj ' for prompt and energetic attention If our vll- lags is to remain doslruble ob a place of U residonco and tho valuo ot property m j.

A meeting was called for last Friday In tho l!lngo hall, and things were got well undor way. Tlio committee had examined the con btttutionH of various New England towns that wero prosooring under u similar system, and toported a doeument founded on the constitu tion of tlio btoekbrtdge.

It named the society Uih Vlllago Improvement I Association or .iw Brlghtou. and stated that its object wns to lmprovo and ornament the stronts and publiu grounds by planting and cultivating troos, dealing and repairing side walks, and Mich other things as would beautify nnd adorn tho town. It dh Ides tbe village Into t nine sections, each section to be under tbo chareo of a committee of three residents. Jndlos If possible. Tho committees were to look nltor all Improvements In their respective ejections co-dtng under 25 each. More ex ponslve lmpiovoments wero to bo submitted to the executive Committee.

It Is rnportod on Rood authority that Mayor Hewitt had a young woman's name on the list for one of the seion Commissioners of Educa tion whom he has to appoint, but ho hasslnco concluded, as The Bun announced yesterday, that women aro not so well suited for the work required as men are. It is said that tho Mayor has been told among other things that tho im mediate friends of Commissioner Grnce II. Dodge were opposed to her figuring as a publlo officer nnd being made tbo brunt ot so much aders criticism, whotber just or unjust And another story told to the prejudice of Miss Dodge and Mrs. Agnoar was that they wero in favor ot introducing uniforms in tho Normal School. Miss Dodge malntalnod unwonted coolness during the criticism that was heaped upon hor while tho Mason Investigation was in progress last summer. In a recent letter sbo wroto: I do not know whst Mr. lttwlti rfrrd to, at none of my Immeriiata frlenda drilra onr wor work In the Uaartl of Ednratian toeea9 My father thorooshlr approves or It and aneourar ei ma tn all mattara.

President Hunter came Into the room durluc her re marks, and mar not hare understood the connection. Uf eourso wa neither of ua thought ot susreetlnc a rerular uniform (er the collrce. uaica If. Done. Since the latest developments In tho Mason case Miss Dodge has received much credit tor tho consistency of ber course. As to the general fitness of women for the office. Commissioner H. Walter Webb voiced tho sontlment of sev eral members of the Board when bo said last night: "If they all were as faithful nnd hard working as Mrs. Dodge and Mrs. Agnew havo been, wa couldn't have too many women com missioners. They have made altogether raoro calls at tho schools than the men hnto.autl their suggestions of improvements havo boon very valuable and have been usually concurred in. I can see no ground for tbo stories that are olreuloted to rob tbem of their merited praise, and I can say that thero is no truth in them so far as I know." U'OUIItE'S QIIATIS OOOD XXOUGII. Br. McsatyBB TVonU Bather Lie In It than Between the Two Archbishops. Dr. McGlynn had a much bigger crowd of peoplo than usual out to hear him last night at the meeting of the Anti-Poverty Bociety in Cooper Union. Every one was on the lookout for some reference to the supposed impending conflict between bis friend. Dr. Burtsell, and tho Church authorities, or to the McGutro ease, which was in tho courts last week. Dr. Mc Glynn made a good many side thrusts at tho Sacred College ot the Inquisition as a fallible tribunal. " It this fallible tribunal." said he. "declares that to be true which clearly Is not true Its declaration is ot do avail. If what it says is out oi reason, and clashes with all justice, sense, honor and truth, I don't wonder that men get enraged and would fain tear down the accursed tribunal from its ill-gotten throne. If you believe that the Idea Is set up on unr altar that God's natural bounties are the rightful ptoperty of a favored few then. I believe In tear ing down that altar and trampling It under my foot. I don't quarrel with tho Apostolic Church, but I hate its claim to tnmnoral nower and all tbeorrors and trumperies which the years have fastened to It." Of the Magulre case Dr. McGlynn said: "I have not taken much Interest in it. It matters very little what honors are paid to the dead bodies of men. It matters very little where the poor clod Is interred, for all God's oarth Is sacred ground." Dr. McGlynn pictured a rich man buried by the priests with pomp and o remony. and a poor girl from Bellovue Hospital, who died be cause she would not sell her soul lor bread, hustled off in a pine box to the Potter's Field. "Should we prefer that nice, snug, whole somo, dry. and comfortable grave In Calvary to that of he poor glrlV" he cried. "I tell you I would rather tako my chances with God in her grave or In John JleGuire's.than In those ot nine-tenths of the people who have the costli est monuments in Calvary. And now I'm going to be very saucy. I would rather take my chances In that poor girl's grave or In John MoGutre's tbnndn a marble box between the two Archbishops under the altar ot Bt. Pat rick's Cathedra)." The crowd yelled and cheered .at this, and Dr. McGlynn sat down alter talking some more Anti-Poverty gospoL BVICIDK OS HIS ITEDDIXa HAT. Charles Etch Cnta bla Throat Because be was Oat of Work and Honey. Charles Elcb, a German cook, committed suicide last evening by cutting his throat in a room at 331 East Twenty-first street. He was to have been married to Miss Eva Henrolther yesterday. Bbe lives at 410 East Seventeenth street Ho had been employed for some months In a hotel uptown, and bad boarded with the family of tbe girl bo was to marry. They were to nave been married at 5 o'clock yeBtorday evening. Last week Eich lost bis place, but he did not let that interfere with his nrrntiMmente .nit Saturday morning he nnd his intended wife hired apartments at 331 East Twenty-first street. Then they bought some carpets and household articles. During tbe afternoon they worked at laying the carpets in their now homo. A quarrel arose between them over the pur chase of some things, and for the rest of the day they didn't speak to each other. lesterday morning Elcb went to tho house again and waited around until noon, when he told tbe housekeeper, Jacob Woerlleh. that he was going to lie down for n few hours and sleep. He asked him to knock at tho door a little before 6 o'clock, as that was the hour ho was to be married. 'Miss Henreitber came about half-past 4 looking for her , lover. The housekeeper. Woerlleh. knocked nt the door of Etch's room, but received no response. He entered and found the dead body of Elch In a pool of blood. He was lying on his hack. In bis right hand wasacarjrlng knife with which he bad cut himself several times In the throat. He was neatly dressed, but had no money in his pos session. The cause of the suicide Is believed to have been lack of funds. Elch was out of work, and. it Is thought, he had no money. Miss Henrolther went to the East Twenty second street nollce station last night and made n statement of the cae. Elch was 27 years old, and belonged to tho Pastry Cooks' Association. satAUBZic ron tub spoils j.v iuaikr No Contest Over tbe Restoration of Joe Blanley to tbs Augusta root Offlee.

Tail DEMOCRATS ADMIT III AT THB.T AUK BADLT MCATUX. Delaware TVIII lor the First Time Meet a KepnMlean Nenatoi If Bayard Follows Precedents be Will at Once Emigrate, WiMtiNOTOK, Nov. IS Tub Sun's dis closures about tho pecuniary part of tho suc cessful Itepubllcnn scheme to steal Delaware was the subject of comment all through tbo Btate yesterday. A good deal of tho talk re solved Itself Into more or less abuse ot tbe lis publican leaders who were supposed to havo glen thodotnlls ot tbe scheme away, and it was learned with a good deal of surprise that Matt Quay badpractlcslly nothing to do with the Republican success In tbo peach-crop State. Tbo Information which Was set forth in yesterdny's Bun was gained entirely from Democratio sources on Friday night. Early on Baturdaynn Investigation among ltopubllcans, both in Wilmington and Philadelphia, con firmed tbo wholo story, Tho details as pub lished are absolutely correct. It was about tho obeapest buy on record. Tho general opinion hero Is that tho Democrats wero entirely ovor matched in strategy, and tho melancholy part of it Is that the present Itepubllcnn power menns more than is indicated on the surface. Thero will bo a great struggle in tho Btate two years hence, and the Inside track which tho ltepubllcans now havo will provo easy running, it the management is shrewd. Anthony Hlgglns is looming up with more importance avory dny. It is now gonerally recognized that his most Important and dnn gorous antagonist Is Mr. Bmtthors. Tho latter is a mnn of a good doal of learning, a preten tious flguro nt tho Delaware bar, and a sturdy Itepubllcnn worker. Tho only difficulty is that i ho was born in 1817. Ho Ib now, therefore, in , his 72d year. and. though ho Is nt present In full possession of his faculties, it is feared that I tho wear and tear of Washington life may bo I too much for htm. It from death or disability Mr. Smlthers's seat should bocome vacant In tho Bennto, tho itepubllcnn sway would Bud donly como to a stop, for Gov. Brlggs Is a Democrat, and it would be In his powor to nn point a successor to tbe so at. In that ease a Democrat would go in and remain in until 1895. Tho decisive buttle which is to bo fougbt In the iuiu two years uoncn win require tno ser vices of a wlso and Industrious leader. All these causes have a tendency to reduce the re dundancy nnd force of tho Bmlthers boom. " The great trouble with Delaware." said a pruminont politician of Dover yesterday, "is that tbo State is so small that tho men grow too big. A mnn who is flvo feet ten inches high anywhere elso In America becomes ten feet five Inches high an soon ns he rnmes Into Delaware. The. Mate Is so small that It Is no more difficult for a man to achieve prominence hero than it Is foru nlde-nwake resident of a small lllago to lift himself up to the top rank, whon he would be lost In the city. That Is why Dela ware Is a State of ambitions. Every man there has his oyo fixed on the Sonatorshlp, and there will bo a mighty pretty fight before the tlnal decision is reached. In point of fact there are only one or two mon In the whole Btate who are up to the Intellectual nnd social level which qualities them for the honors ot Benator. It Is not a question, you understand, of personal honesty: because the politicians ot Delaware, singularly enough, have always boon honost. All tho Buulsburys and the Bayards are men of sterling personal Integrity, though they havo boen up to political tricks from the time thoy were ten years old that would astonish inrao of the ward managers of politics in New York. " W hen Bnyard leaves the Statu of Delaware because the Btate docs not mako him bnnator, ho will be following historical precedent: in fact, n lot of them. I do not know whethoryou know it or not. but It has always been the cus tom for Delaware mon to Biinko tne dust of too Btate off their feet whenovor thoy failed to get tho officos thoy worked for. Tlio Idea Is that when they go away irom little Delnware tbe Btute will feel so lonely without them that It will send out into tho country and drag them back again. You smile, but It Isagrao mistake. I am sneaking facts, Lowls McLean, for In stanco. was Senator from Delaware up to 1823: after that he was Jackson's Secretary of the Troiisury. then Secretary of Btate, and after ward Minister to Eneland. Ho was tbe father, by the way. of Bob McLean, our present Min ister to Paris. Alter all these honors abroad bo returned to Delaware, after the fashion of our local politicians, in tho hope of reentering the Benate. His family was already there, and ho had no thought ot failure. Canton. Bus sex county, however, turned agoinst hhn nnd nna went for Clnytan. Thereupon ho moved majestloally out of the Rtate and shook the dust ot Delaware from bis feet. His resi dence after that was in Baltimore. " Take another case, ltlchard H. Bayard was defeated for tho Benate by Presley Bpruence. Mr. Bavard Immediately moved to Phlladol- Sbla. Let trie glvo you still another instance, ames A. Bayard, the father of our present Secretary of Btate, who Is an able lawyer and the lender of tho Democracy, found that he was 5olng to fall with his party In 1852. and immo lately moved to New York city. After living thero a couple ot years he found that his chances bad Improved, nnd he returned again to tbe Btate to accept office. Thomas F. Bay ard will In all probability do likewise, as far as tbe first part of the tale is concerned. Whether he will find the btate willing to return blra again to Congress In the course of two or three yenrsis a question; but tn leatlng Delaware on account of his ill success, he follows a prec edent that has been set by half tlio great men of our State." To the stranger In Delaware nothing is more Indlcailte of the extraordinary Interest nnd power which politics has, than the interest shown by the women in the election contests. Not only the wives of the citizens of Wilming ton tulg sagely ubout tho details of etery can vass, but their daughters aro similarly woll Informed. To hpnr il olri of 17 Air dnwn nnd discuss majorities, caucuses, and tho ontlre history of party rule, reeling dates oft the end of her tongue with suavity nnd easo. Is an aston ishing experience o en in America, Pictures of Clayton, of tho Bayards, the Snulsburys. and all other statesmen who hate recently been IKpular Idols are to be found on tbo walls of tho houses and In the business offices. All talk of contesting tho legality or the re cent ote has now been dropped, and the Dem ocratic politicians hato given up hope. Tho mnn who gets the nomination from the Legis lature will bo tho first Itepubllcnn politician who has ovor snt in the national Capitol rep resenting the State of Delaware, and he will receive a howling recognition If he does not, Delaware will bo up In arms.

Honry Johnson, tho Englishman who as tonished Policeman Frederick nipple of tho Thirtieth street squad on Baturday night by asking him what city ho was in, recovered his memory yesterday In Bellovue Hospital, He was sent thero because the police believed him lnsano. Tho doctors thero diagnosed his caso ns whiskey, and ho was put In tbe in obrlnte cells. "I may hao been contused as to what city I was In," he said yosterday, "but I surely know I was not tn London, I am subject to loss of 1 momory, and I do not recall now even my trip from Boston here, but I remember my coming from England perfectly woll. I was In this country beforo in 18C8 to 1870, and again from 1874 to 187G, and llrod in nrlous Wostotn citios, I have a little money and a bit of prop erty in England in tho enro ot my sistor, Mrs. Lizzie McKay, whoso letter was inmypockot I havo boon weak for a long time, and not able to do much, I sold brushes for a London houso In the Metropolitan district.

Wo all went to Boston, and, as the man did not got much to do. they became a drain on mo. I applied to tlio British Consul tlioro for help to gat back to Englnnd. Ho got me n tlckot to New York, nnd told mo to go to Castle Garden. Tho authoritlss there, ho said, would send mo home. 1 went there two or three dos in succession, and was buffeted about by undorllngs until I got discouraged. I bad but u triflo of money left nnd I spent It for drink. I had been walking around for a Spod whllo whon I spoke to tlio policeman, y Idea was that he would send mo to n hos pital or some Institution where I could stnv until I heard from my slter.

Cotter was taken to the Presbyterian Hospital, where ho refused to make any charge against Var) Arsdale, or give any explanation of tho quarrel. A Bun reporter found Van Arsdale at his home yesterday. He Is very short, but stocky. Cotter, on tlio other hand, Is a big one. He and his wife, that's my sistor." said Van Arsdale. "used to Ihe hero, but they aud roy mother couldn't get along, so we fired 'em both out That's bis child ling sick on the sofa, there. She s got tho measles.

A week or more ago it became known that Queen and some of his outlaw followers were in tbe vicin ity, and tboy were llnnlly found in n cabin about a mile from the Dog Creek Court House. Last night the Sheriff mado up a party, and, going to the placo, they secreted themselves about tbe premises. One of the number went into tbo houso and asked to wnrm his feet.

After seventy-three weeks' Imprisonment In tbe county jail. Ed ward McDonald walked out ot the criminal court last evening a freeman under $10,000 bonds. Tho forinullty ot a bond, and the dis tant prospect of another trial seemed trifles light ns air, and tbe faco of the ex-engineer and bvodlor was wreathed In smiles. Ills ride down Clark street partook of the nature ot an exile's return. Tho long confinement In jail has not decreased McDonald's welpht. or lessened, apparently, the number of bis friends. itb them tne question of the conrluied man's guilt wns apparently never considered : it was enough to know that lie was " a mighty good i follow In hard luck." Ho was welcomed back to fioedom and treated 111,0 n prince. Oon of tlioottorneys forthe boodlors said; , Mi Garlgl can now como back to Chicago, shake hands with KborifT Matson, spend ten days In jail, and walk out a free man.

Mr. Shnrman Climbs Eagle Taock Twenty (bar Times on m Blcjcle. A largo numberof cyclists rodo out yester day morning to Eagle Bock, in tbo Orange Mountains, to witness J. H. tihurman. a cyclist ot Lynn. Mass., make an attempt to break tho hill-climbing record. Tbe steep winding road from tho bottom to the toD of the hill Is a mile .long, and it bad been ridden thirteen times In 1 3 hours 15 minutes 45 seconds by Frederick Coningsby. a Brooklyn bicycle rider. It was to break this rocord that tihurman marled. The word was given at 8:50. The weather was alear. hut 'quite cold for riding, rihurman tolled slowly up tho hill, and, facing about, rushed down, doing tho mile from top to bot tom in nbout 2 minutes 3D seconds. At the end of thirteen round trips twenty-eight miles Shurmun was over ten minutes nboad ot the record, but, keening steady at his work, he rodo up the hill twontv-four times, finishing at 3:15. his not time for tbe twenty-four trips be ing G hours 21 minutes 15 seconds. Later in the afternoon Coningsby, who was present and had tbe pleasure ot seeing his rec ord broken, started to break the record for climbing the hill on an "ordinary" wheel, which was four road trips In 1 hour 20 minutes. Conlngby. whole only five feot tall and only 18 I sears old. rodo tbe hill four times inl55 mln i utes 55 seconds, more than 24 minutes less than the record. Experts say it will be Along 1 time beforo either Conlngsby's or Shurmnn'a record is broken, as both are high-class per formers. The timers wero E. J. Docker ol Newark and F. P. Prial. editor of the Wheel CROTOS WATER BREAKS LOOSE, Htrallonrs Up the Pavement at Pitt and Delancey, and Floods tbe Ollars. A jet of water squirted up between tho paving stones at Pitt and Delnncey streets at 10:45 o'clock last night In a tow minutes the j'et bad Increased in volume until It resembled the stream from a fire hose. It was on the north side ot tbe street Presently another jet began to spout on the opposite sidewalk. About 11 o'clock tbo paving stones in the middle of tbo four corners sang, leaving a cavity twelve feel long by four reet wide. The jets ceased, i water swelled up In the cavity, and soon over- I flowed Into the neighboring cellars. Ex-Aldernian Owon McGTnnlss owns the big tenement on the northwest corner. William Koster, Jr.. formerly owned tbe house, and still lives on the llrst floor. lie examined the cavity, nnd 'said the oroton water main waa burst The cellar of the tenement Is far be low the level of the sidewalk, and the water poured into It with a roar that sounded like n waterfall. Kx-Alderman McQInnlts is a plumber, and he had all his men at work, but they could do nothing to stop the water from pouring Into tho cellar. Two truoks were put across tho stroet to provont wagons passing. Opium Hmugglers Arrested.
