HJT.Vr BACK ON THE XIOTEL KEEPERS, Bat at the Threat to Divide th Tovrn of Hunter tlio C'ommlesloriere Weakened. IIUNTEn, June 20. The proprietors of the Catsklll hotels ln Groono county havo beon having n tusslo with tho F-xclso Commission ers of tho town of Hunter this Bprtnc. Tho township, lying in tho centroof Groene coun ty, Includes tho Catsklll hotel and boarding houso region : among tho hotels Are the Kaat orskill Houso and tho Mountain House. A good pnrt of tho profit of theso houses oomos from tho bar trado; not that the drinking Is excessive, but thnt many pooplo who spend their summers there are accustomed totako wino with tholr dinnor nnd an occasional cocktail beforehand. The proprietors expect ed to get their llconsos as a mnttor of courso this year, because nttho town election, whon tho Fxclso Commissioners woro chosen, tho llcenso men dofentod tho no-llconso men. nnd tho Kxciso Hoard ns clocted woro In faTor of granting licenses. Hut after they woro cloctod. nnd before tho applications were granted, a mijorlty of tho llonrd were converted at a ro llgious revival, and not only stopped drinking themselves, but declined to grnnt licenses to anybody to sell anything intoxlcnting. Tlm neare-t plnco whero a drink could bo obtained was the adjoining town of Catsklll. The line between Catsklll and Hunter Is drawn nt thn foot of the mountains on which tlio K.iutui skill and Mountain Houses nro. There Is, however, such a difference In height betweon tho two towns that tho law could not bo evadod by setting up bars Insldo tho Catsklll town line, where sales could bo made with delivery nt the lintel tables. There scorned no way out of tho difficulty except to luivu tho dividing lino altered so that it would run up to the top of tho mountain. In which caso the hotels could got licenses from tho ('nt-kill Hoard. The pooplo of Catsklll wero in favor of this move, which would hnvo brought valuable proporty into their town without ad ditional cxponse. reducing tholr tax lovy nnd incionsing tho incomo from llcensos. Hut at tlio throat of division tho taxpayers of Hunter beenmn nbirmed and brought n pressure to benrontho P.xciso Commissioners, which re sulted in nrrangomonts satisfactory to the Hotel keepers. The matter has caused n great deal of talk among tho peoploof Greene nnd Ulstor counties, and when tho voters of Hun ter next elect a llonrd of Uxciso Commlsrloti ers, tho possibility of their having a change of mind botween tho tlmo of election and the tlmo for grunting licenses will bo taken Into account IT WAS A SOFT POTATO.

Th decision of tho Now Jersoy Court of Errors and Appeals In tho cases ot tho Jersoy City ballot box stutters wns handed down yesterday. Tho court affirms tholr conviction and scntonco. Tho decision, although It has beon oxpocted for somo time, created a sonsatlon among Jorsoy City politicians last night Next to tho defendants themselves their bondsmen felt tho greatest anxiety. Tho Flection Hoard, whoso caso was taken up on appeal to detormino the legality of tho conviction, consisted of Jacob Moscholl, J. Thomas Du Hnnccy. James Hart, and Thomns Fallon. Tho decision will apply to all the othor election officers who huvo been oonvlotod. Tho frauds were commlttod nt tho fall elec tion In 1880. The ballot boxos woro stuffed with fraudulent ballots Indiscriminately nnd without nny attompt whatovor to covor up tho crime. In tho lower part of tho city tissuo ballots were prepared, put through tho top of a patent ballot box, w hich stamped and punc tured them so ns to glv o thorn tho appearance ot being genuine and woro dumped Into tho regular boxes on cloction day. It was tho most bungling oioco of political crooked work ever attempted anywhere, so bungling, in fact that when tho perpetrators woro i-botitto bo tried It wns satirically suggested that they might oscapo conviction by setting up a plea of Insanity. Dead men's names woro voted on. nnd voters woro registered from stouo yards, churches, factories, nnd vacant lots. 1 ho registry lists wero swelled to enormous pro ortioi.s.
