Nearly three months ago a century plant in
the greenhouse of J. Condon, on Fort Hamilton
Parkway, near Greenwood Cemetery, sent forth
a flower shoot. The plant, with many others ot
its kind which Mr. Condon had received from
Mexico, had been lying untended in a corner ot
the troonhoufce, and whon one of tho employees
told the proprietor that it was behaving In an
unusual manner Mr, Condon supposed at first
that it was merely developing anew leaf shoot.
Aftsr three days, during which time tho polo
green point had ascended one foot, ho changed
his mind, and bad the century plant moved out
Into a sunny spot. It was carefully tended
and watched, tor the blossoming of one ot these
plants Is so rare in this climate that tho occa
sions on which it has happened In this Slate
within fifteen years can bo counted on one's
fingers.
Now the plant Is in full bloom. It hss
reached a height ot twenty-five trot, and fifteen
feet up tho first branch appears. There are
twelve other branches above this. Each branch
Is decorated with corn-colored flowers hanging
in clusters like tho familiar begonia rubra.
Those flowers are more curious than beautiful,
their paio hue unfitting them for an ornamental
flower. For a month tbo flow era remain; then
they fall, and whore thoy alight hundreds of lit
tle century plants will spring up. With the
falling of the flowers and tho consequent propa
gation of tbe species, tho plant, wnlch has lived
perhaps bov only or eighty j cars to this end nnd
purpose, dies. First its leaves swell cnor
mouslr, then they wither away, and almost be
fore the tiny centenarians baro probed tbelr
green crests above tho earth all that remnlns
ot tho mother plant Is thq round, spike-like
stem, hardened to a stony consistency. As
long as tho flowers bloom. Sir. Condon will
throw open his greenhouse to tho public
In Mexico, w hero this species of century plant
flourlBhes-lt Is called scientifically. purr Sltri
cann tho plant Is put to many uses, nnd Mr.
Condon intends, as nn experiment, to got all
tho uso from his plant that he can. Tbe Mexi
cans use it for the three primal necessities of
life food, drink, and shelter. As Mr. Condon
haa roofs on all his buildings, ho doesn't know
quite w hen he shall uso the dried flowers for
thatching, though they form an excellent
thatch, impervious to rain. From tho leaves
ho will experiment at making a flour much
esteemed in Mexico. Tho Juice be will fer
ment Into tho Insidious pulquo or distil
into tho more fiery vino mercnl. both of
which are highly esteemed drinks in Mexico,
and aid largely in koeping the population down,
both by doing their own killing and inspiring
thoir virtlms to murder. The owner of this
plant will deal cautiously with this particular
product. Besides this ho will uso ns soap a sort
of waxy substance w hlch exudes from the Irav es,
and plait the fibre Into ropo. Also ho will get
lco from this extraordinary plant by splitting
tho loaves lengthwlso and laying them flat in
tho sun. Evaporation Is so swift from the leaf
that thin strips of lco form on it. Finally ho
will split tho stony stem down tho centra and
hare tho very best razor strop known toman.
"I bavo been particularly fortunate. In cen
tury plants," Bald Mr. Condon yesterday, "for
this is the second ono that has nloomcd in ray
greenhouses. Tho other was in 1 BUJ, and penplo
came from all over the country to see it. That
ono grow so that I had to knock the roof out ot
the greenhouse to givo it room. How old this
plant Is I have no means of knowing. It has
been here for several years, stow cd away under
a bench most of tho time. In Mexico these plants
blossom sometimes after twenty or twenty
fivo yenrs of grow th. w hlle other specimens will
requiroovcnty or eighty years. I have a num
ber of other century plants about, but I am not
looking for any of them to sprout, na It Is
very rarely that ono of these plants blooms in
this climate, and two In a lifetime Is ns much
good furtuno as any horticulturist has a right
to expect."

The Order lo Deport tbe Alleged Missionary
Continued by Judge Lacombft.
United States Circuit Court Judge Lacombe
has sustained the dclsion ot Commissioner
Shields directing that Charley Leung, who
claims to be a missionary, shall be deported to
China. Leung came to this country several
years ago and went to live In Brooklyn. He be
came connected with the Washington Avenue
Baptist Church Sunday school there nnd at
tracted the attention of the pastor, tho late Dr.
Ellis, who took considerable Interest in his re
ligious Instruction. After a time Leung began
o do missionary work among his countrymen
n Brooklyn, but, as be received no money from
the church, he was obliged to support himself
byestabliehlng a laundrv.
Finally he told Dr. Ellis and others of tho
church that he would like to go to China and
convert his father and mother to Christianity.
The church people gave him letters of recom
mendation and helped him pecuniarily, but they
did not appoint him as a missionary nor allow
him a salary, although It was understood that
he would try to make Christians of others bo
rides bis parents. And It Is upon this nvk that
Charley Leung has been wrecked. He left this
country nnd, after an absenccof several months,
returned to New York. He became connected
with the Presbyterian Mission, and tried to con
vert other Chinamen, but in order to live ho hod
to work In a laundry.
This, it appears, was against the law. It
made a "laborer" of him according to tbe
Chinese Exclusion act, and so Chinese Inspector
Scbnrf caused his arrest. That was soveral
weeks ago. and since then Charley has been
called upon to appear hrforo Commissioner
Shields several times. William C. Be.'ther
made a hard fight forCharle,hut tho evidence
was such that, undrr the law, tbe Commissioner
had no altcrnntiv o but to bold him.
Assistant United States District Attorney
Koblcr, who represented the Government, con
tended that no proof had been nut In to show
that Leung was not a laborer, or that he was an
authorized missionar). It was upon the estab
lishment of the accuracy; of this contention that
the decHons deporting Leung arr based.
Mr. Kohler admitted that if the Chinaman
could establish hli claim to being a missionary
and not a laborer the effort toward bis deporta
tion would fall.

Irajlo flays Ills Information I.ed to tbe Arrests
Durden Says !Yo.
Jean Luclen Bayle has been directed by Jus
tice Russell of the Supremo Court to servo a
bill of particulars in his action to recover a re
wnrd of 10,000 from I. Townsend Burden and
his wife, Evelyn Burden, on allegations that be
furnished the Information leading to tbo recov
ery of their atolen Jewelry nnd the arrest of the
thieves. The houso of Mr, Burden was robbed
on Dec. 27, 1805. The plaintiff nlluges that Mr.
Burden offerod a reward of $10 000 for the re
covery of the jewelry und arrest of tho thieves,
and proceeds;
"That plaintiff, with the knowledge of nnd In
compliance with smh agreements, promises,
and requests, nubllsbed as aforesaid, afterward
and on tho 3rd and 4th das of April. 1B00,
and on subsequent days, did give to the de
fendants smh information as led to the recovery
of the property aforesaid by defendants and to
the discovery of tho criminals who were guilty
of tho theft thereof, und that thereafter said
criminals were In due course of law tried and
conv It tod In consequence of such information."
Mr. Burden makes affidavit, which was sworn
to at Newport, that ho never received informa
tion from tho plaintiff that led lo tho recovery
of the property or any other Information that he
can recall, and he asked torn bill of particulars
which shall state what tbe information was,
whom It was given to and the times nnd places
at which It w sb given. He bo) b f urlhor that ho
has recovered only about two-thlrdsof tho prop

out tbe assistance of the plaintiff. Bayle has
ten duys to give these particulars on pain of
buying the abov e quoted allegation stricken out.

Brier Reviews of tausortanl and laterostlac
Sun rablleatlsaa,
An artlcUon "Preciosity." by John M. Robert
son, in the Aprllnumberof "Tho Yellow Book,"
reveals the fact that the essayist it one of that
considerable number who are Impatient with
tho style ot George Meredith, the novelist. Pre
ciosity It a phraso of rathorllberal moaning, and
It has been applied In recent times to Carlyle,
Browning, Walter Pater, and Mr. Bwlnburnc. at
well ns to the authcr of " Lord Orrnoht and Ills
Amlnta." It seems to mean In part a tort ot
writing that It often not comprehensible and
almost never desirable. It is to be presumed,
ot course, that It carries some measure ot
gratification to tho culprits who manufacture
It, It would bo singular, perhaps, if It did not,
for It relieves tbem ot the strain ot being co
herent, sane, and worth while. Sometimes It
means that an author Is obscure, sometimes
that he Is merely silly. It generally carries with
It tho reproach that it supposed to bo deserved
by what is pompous, artificial, and distinguished
by whims of form and sound rather than by
thought, Mr. Robertson singlet out for especial
reprobation the celebrated swimming match
In "Lord Ormont and His Amlnta." He
socras to havo satisfied himself that this
Is tho most grotesquoly remarkable tnlm
mine episode that ever transacted Itself
In the Atlantic or any other ocean.
Surely he does not exactly say this, but-ltls
plain enough that he means it two such gar
rulous simpletons as Amlnta nnd Matey Wey
burn were never bo politely treated by tho dis
cerning and discriminating great waters.
What was the matter with tho Atlantic Ocean
If they were t Where wsb Its notorious sense of
humor t What nlled It In Its well-known capac
ity of practical Joker I Why, In the f nco of such
an opportunity, did not tho intelligent waves
roll Amlnta rapidly over and over endwlso, so
that sbo could not possibly talk, and why did
thoy not treat Weyburn to ample purga
tions ot salubrious and quieting brine I
When Mntoy opened bis mouth to say
an incredibly foolish thing, or Amln
ta said something supernaturally silly,
why were they not whisked away by the under
tow, or why did not somo lurking sea puss
pounco upon them and carry them off In Its ruth
less claws t It is really a question as to tho
proper time and placo for particular things, and
we presume thero aro plenty of people fairly
well qualified to Judge who will agree with Mr.
Robertson that this form ot preciosity has no
right to declare Itself In the fullest glare of
heaven, in a panorama of green and heaving bil
lows, whitewashed lighthouses, and mackerel
smacks careening to the strong wind. Anybody
may properly ask, and we dare say It will bo
found difficult to answer, how thero could have
ventured to Intrude Itself, In the unhindered
diurnal circumstances, such a ploco of preciosity
as this:
With a chuckle of dtllxhtod surprise, like a black
bird startle.1. sbo pvuaod seaward for Joy ot the ef
fort, thinking she oould exult In imagination of an
escape up to the moment of Cloture, yielding then
only to his greater will 1 and she meant to try It. Tbo
swim was a holiday; all was new nothing cams to
her as tbo same old thing since she took her plunges
she had a sra mind had left htr earth mind ashore.
The swim, and Uatey VOyburn pursuing her, passed
cp out of happiness, through tbo spheres of delirium.
Into the rerloni where our life is as we would hare
It be: A borne holding tbe quiet ot the heavens, it but
midway thither, and a borne full ot delicious anima
tion of tho whole frame equal to wings
We presume that the porpoises were rolling
and darting meantime In theold conveatlonal
and unprecious wny. Tho llghthousts blinked
In tbe powerful sunllgnt. nnd tho mackerel
smack peoplo kept a calm, sane eye out for busi
ness. Matey put after Amlnta:
lie drew on her. but be w as distant, and she waved
an arm. The shout of ber flee sprang from her:
"Matey!" He waved; she beard his vole. Was it
berca-ne? He was not so drunken of tbe saaaasbe;
ho had not leaped out ot bond ago Into buoyant waters.
Into a youth without a blot, without an aim, satisfied
In tasting; tbo dream or tbe long felicity. A thought
brushed by hen now If bo were absent ? It relaxed
her stroke of arms and legs. Ho bad doubled tbo salt
sea'a rapture, and be bad shackled its gift of freedom.
She turned to float, gathering herkneesfor the funny.
Sullen kick, until she heard blm near. At onoe ber
stroke was renewed vigorously, she bad tbe foot of
ber pursuer, and she called, "Adieu, Matey Wey
burn !"
Tho great salt sea continued to bo good to
tbem. It spared them collision with its career
ing Dornolsei. It put up with Mr. Meredith's
proclo'dty. and was not disturbed by Amlnta's
funny, sullen kick. For nil we know It was
friendly to preciosity, and approved of Mr.
Meredith. Tho engaging pair swam along:
Her bravado deserved a swifter humiliation than
he was able to bring down upon ber, she swam bravo
ly ; and she was divine to noe ahead as well ai to over
take. Darting to tbe close parallel, bo said: "What
sea nymph sang me my name T " Bhe smote a pang of
testacy Into him: "Ask mine I" "Drowny"' They
swam; neither of tbem panted; their heads were
water flowers that spoke at ease. "We've run from
school; we won't go back " " We're a kingdom "
Here's a big wave going to be a wall." -On bo
rolls." "He's like the High Brent broad meadow
under Elllng Wood " "Don't let Mtsa Vincent bear
you." "Tbey'ro not waves; they're sighs of tho
deep."
And still the sea restrained Itself, nnd pre
ciosity bad its salt water day along with the
smacks and the porpoises and tbe other estab
lished marine phenomena. Mr. Robertson
speaks very severely of all this. Tbe main
question Involved, ot course, la whether he or
Mr. Meredith is right. Is preciosity ever likely
to becomo popular f Will It be employed In law
documents and political primaries, or is it des
tined, llko theosopby and whitebait, to be the
luxury of tho saving fowl Will the barbers
ever address to us tbo language of preci
osity as (hey make spectacles of us, and
render us flagrantly odoriferous, and Invest
us with Ingenious pains. Who can tell these
things I At tbe present time Mr. Meredith Is
not much read in tbo conveyances that move
people to and from the suburbs, or In the cable
cars and elevated trains; but that Is not an evi
dence upon which to found positively the sup
position that Miss Laura Jean Llbby has deter
mined the style of tbo future. Mr. Robertson
thinks that "Lord Ormont and His Amlnta" Is
not destined to a long life. We do not remember
any mention of it in "Looking Backward,"
"The Chevalier d'Aurlac" (Longmans, Green
& Co.), which recently appeared in serial form
In The Evesiso Sun, is a book thatmay be rec
ommended to all those who appreciate a good,
hearty, rollicking story of adventure, with lots
of flcrco fighting and a proper proportion of
love-making of a simple, pleasant sort. There
are thoso who profess to estimate this class of
Action very lightly, even as many bold that the
fairy tale Is for tbo nursery alone, but after a
protracted course of didactic, decadent, and
problem-propounding Action a man may
find much refreshment In a tale so sim
ply nnd yet bo skilfully told as this.
"MUU iliablttl Lost again I Tbe dovll
runs In those dice I" Thus do we plunge at tho
beginning Into tbe very middle ot things and
becomo spectators of tbe game played In a
half-ruined hut, before the walls of La
Fere, between two gentlemen of the army of

author of "By Reef and Palm," and several
other volumes of South Sea Island stories, we
recall no w rlter who has shown such power and
literary skill in dealing with tbo primitive pas
sion, the intensity, the brilliance, and the gloom
of tropical Island life, as has Mr. Joseph Conrad
in "An Outcast of tbe Islands." (Appletons )
From the opening pages descriptiveof the out
skirts of Maccassar in the Celebes, where lazy
yellow-skinned half castes, the degenerate de
scendants ot tbe old Portuguese conquerors,
, thufllo aimlessly around amid tht dirt
t
s
and squalor of their surrounding, to
the final tragedy with which the out
cast's career clotos, the story marches on
without break. They aro not a pleasant
lot, these drunken, dissolute traders, Malay
pirates, and half-caste Portuguese that crowd
Mr. Conrad's pages, and It we except tbe Old
sea Captain, Tom Llngord, the Rajah Laut,
fierce ot aspect, loud ot voice, and stupidly
guileless of heart, there U among them all no
man or woman who It calculated to increase
one's respect for human nature. But they live
nnd breathe, fight and love and hate, and they
are set in the heavy languorous atmosphere
that hangs In the gloom and silence ot the
tropical forest, where the most brilliant
flower blossom In tho midst of poison
and decay. Wlllems, the outcast, who
from being confidential clerk to a rich Dutch
trader descends to vagabondage, and finally to a
life of lemi-saTagery with a half-casto Arab wo
man, AUia, the woman, and Babalatch! and
Lakamba, Malay adventurers nnd pirates, are
typesnewtoreadsrsof fiction. Tliolovcsof white
men and black women and tho Iragodies they
bring about have been, by Mr. Becke, mode the
material for many Interesting stories, but In thlt
volume thero Is ovldonco ot a sustained power
and an insight Into the inner causes of these
things that tho author ot "By Reef and Palm"
has not shown. Here is tht first meeting ot the
woman aid tho man:
He felt a strange Impatience wllhtn him at her ad
Vance. Confused thoughts rushed through bit bead,
disordered, shapeless, stunning. Then bo heard his
own voice asking!
"Who are you T"
"I am tho daughter ot the blind Omar," ths an
swered In a low but steady tone. "And you." sbo
went on, a little louder, "you are tbo white trader
the great man of thlt place."
" Yes," said Wlllems, holding her eyes with his In
a sense of extreme effort, "ye. 1 am white," Tnon
ho added, feeling as It ha spoke about some other
man, "but I am tbo outcast of my people "
Bha listened to blm (rarely. Through ths mesh ot
scattered hair her face looked llko the f ssa ot a golden
atatuo with living eyes. Ibe heavy eyelids dropped
slightly, and from between tho long eyelashes sbo
sent out a sidelong look! bard, keen, and narrow, llko
tbe gleam of sharp steel. Iter lips were Arm and com
posed In a graceful curve, but tbo distended nostrils,
the upward polso of ths half STerteJ head, garo to
her wbolo person ths expression ot a wild and resent
ful defiance.
A shadow passed over Wlllema's face, ns put his
hand over his lips as if to keep back tbo words that
wanted to come out In a surge ot Impulsive neces
ally, tht outcome of dominant thought that rushes
from the heart to ths brain and mutt be spoken In
tbe face of doubt, ot danger, of fear, ot destruction
Itself.
" You are beautiful." hs whispered.
She looked at him again with a glance that, run
nlng in one quick flash of ber eyes over his sunburnt
features, his broad shoulders, bis straight, tail, mo
tionless figure, rested at lastontbe ground at his feet,
Tben she smiled. In ths sombra beauty ot her faco
that smile was llko a gleam of dawn on a stormy
mornlngt like ths first ray ot eastern light that
darts evanescent and pale through the gloomy clouds 1
tbo forerunner of sunrise and of thunder.
"Tho Folly of Pon Harrington" (Appleton's),
a novel by Mr. Julian Sturgls, contains some ex
cellent fooling, and Is as cheery a bit of light
comedy as wo have met with for somo time.
There Is but the faintest suggestion of a plot, and
thedlalogtio Is ot the lightest, airiest kind, but
Mr. Sturgls writes as one who knows his subject,
and these fashionable London folk ot his
are sketched with a touch of satlie that
is rarely other than good naturcd. Penel
opo herself, the brilliant and eccentrio
leader ot tho most cxcluslvo clique in
London, and Peter Blake, tho man from South
Africa, aro very pleasant person, and their woo
ing gives a touch of romance tn the story, whllo
"Freddy," the golf enthusiast; Lady Linda, nnd
the ponderous Duchess of Buckland are alt
sketched In the true comodv spirit. Johnny
Pesaro, the lucky speculator who becomes
"John Spenctr Pesaro" nnd a power In
Tbe City, has some points that re
call memories of a lately deceased South
African millionaire, and others in which
be resembles a type that every day becomes
more numerous and more powerful in London.
"Good old John Spencer was an institution
with the young bloods of Throgmorton street.
They dined with him, they hnd an Immense be
lief in his business capacity, and. If they quoted
his social verdicts with levity, they quoted his
financial opinions with that tone of awe which
formerly w ns recrv ed for religion. If you henr
a solemn tone tn the gay world of to-day, 5011
will find that tbo subject is money." A capital
book this for a lazy man or woman and a pleas
ant summer day.
Under the title of "Religion for To-Dny"
(George II. Ellis, Boston), tho Rev. Mlnot J.
Savage, D. D , publishes a 'volume of sermons
delivered In tho Church of the Messiah In this
city during the past twelve months. There Is a
fine vigor and earnestness In these addresses
and a breadth and tolerance that Is infinitely
refreshing In these days of denominational
wrangling and discussion. Under the title of
"Present Religious Conditions," tbe reverend
gentleman defines tho prtsont position of
the little group ot Unitarian churches, and
then proceeds In a series of addresses
to discuss the causes ot present religious
unrest, tbo question ns to what Christianity
Is. lmmortallt) from the point or view of the
modern world. bc'.Uand heaven, the Church ot
yesterday, to-day and to-morrow, nnd a number
of other topics. "Thero never was." says Dr.
Savage, "such nn earnest truth-seeking, such a
feverish desire for truth In tho history of this
world as characterizes tho leaders of the world's
thought and life In this nineteenth cen
tury of ours. It Is tho best people, it Is
tbe most t intelligent peoplo, who above all
things desire truth, who aro asking theso
questions" In answer to the question as
to what claim the Unitarian churches make
hesays: "I believe, with my whole soul, that
we stand for the principles which are to rulo tho
world In the coming thousands of years. For
why? Wo believe in and respect the heart, tho
emotional, tho feeling sldo of religion. Wo be
lieve also in and respect the intellectual side,
and demand for It Its right ; nnd we bellcvo that
theso groat thousands of peoplo have gone out
of tho churches becnuso there was not room
enough In tho churches for the Intellectual de
velopment and freedom that the modern world
demands."
Miss Mary E. Wllklns has written nothing
better than ber lntest story, "Jerome, a Poor
Man" (Harpers), which shows all those quali
ties of humor, tenderness, nnd B)mpathy and
that keen insight and unerring and artlstlo
touch that give lo her pictures of New Euglund
life a peculiarly personal charm. This Is the
history of a brave man and bis plucky fight with
fate, and Interwoven with it ail Is a love story
so tenderly and sj delicately told that It lingers
in the memory like the fragrance ot sweet lav
ender and dried rose leaves. Thero Is
realism, too. All the sordldness of tbo boy
Jerome's early life is described In de
tail. Tho poor, paltry pride of the mother,
ashamed of her poverty and w lllng to starve
herself rather than let tho neighbors know that
she has not all tho needs, Is plainly shown, and
much that is mean and potty in the dally routine
of simple, narrow l'-cs Is brought to view; but
It Is all tendered with faith In humanity and
sereno wisdom. And that tbs author has
brought her book to a close with an old-fashioned
"happy ending" will be to many readers
a cause for gratitude.
In "Wolfvlllo" (Frederick A. Stokes) Mr.
Alfred Henry Lewis (D.ip uln) spins a number
of yarns about the choice spirits In an Anson
mining camp. Doc Peets, Cherokeo Hall, Faro
Nell, nnd the rest are a pretty " tough " lot, and
their language, as reproduced by the old cattle
man who Is supposed to be telling the stories, is
so rigidly confined to tbe highly colored
phraseology of the game ot draw poker
as, after a time, lo become monotonous.
The sketches all have a certain rough humor
and aro excellent examples of their kind, and
those who like the sort of jest that plays as
merrily around the corpse and the coffin lid as
tliteuxollttt that hover over dank and musty
gravestones will doubtless delight in tbem.
There Is evidence both in the text and In Mr.
Remington's illustrations that tbe most flour
ishing Industry in Wolf rills must have been tbe
undertaker's.

Keubaner Had Ulnar Diamonds tie Says Ha
TCas Honnd to Veneauela.
R. A. Noubnucr, a passongerwho arrived at
Itoboken yesterday on the Hamburg-American
steamship Fucrst Bismarck, aroused the suspi
cions of Customs Inspector Timothy Donohue by
his evident nervousness while his baggage was
being examined. Nothing dutiable was found
In hit trunks, but Inspector Donobuo wnB con
vinced that Ncubauer had valuables of some
sort In his possession. Noubauer was taken to
the Inspector's office on the pier, where he was
subjected to a thorough search. In his clothing
diamonds valued at "5 000 wore found. They
consisted of rings, earrings, studs, and un
set diamonds A necklace worth (1,500 was
about his neck.
Neubnuer was taken before United States
Commissioner Edwurd Ruff. He said he
had no intention of smuggling tho diamonds;
he was on his way to Venezuela, South America,
with tbem. lie declared that he was the Eu
ropean agent for the owners of a coffee planta
tion, and hnd taken tho diamonds In lieu of cash
for coffee. He was on his way to Venezuela to
deliver tho diamonds to tho consignors of tbe
coffee.
He was balled in $1,000, nnd deposited that
amount In cash, He was released and went to
New York. Tho diamonds wero held.
Noubauer called at tho Custom House here
after his release and tvt Col. Dudley F. Phelps,
chief of the law division. He repeated to Col.
Phelps that he was on his way to Venezuela and
exhibited bis steamship ticket to that country.
Ho said that the reason he had not declared tho
Jewelry was that he did not know It was neces
sary. Ileshould have declared It and let the
Inspectors seal it up, Tbe opinion was expressed
at the Custom House that If Ncubauer could
prove Urn the was really on his wa to Venezuela
when the Jewelry seized he would be al
lowed to go nnd take his Jewelry with hlra with
out furthor trouble.

It Com Into Effect TTItbout Any Action by
Mayor Ilooa.
The resolution of ths Jersey City Board ot
Finance fixing the tax budgot for 1897 8 went
into effoct yesterday without any action on the
part of Mayor Hoos, It was understood that
tho Mayor intended to veto some of the appro
priations and that he even had the veto message
prepared, but he changed his mind at the last
moment and neither vctood nor signed the
budget. The Board of Finance figured on re
ceiving (114.000 from railroad taxes under the
law passed by tho last Legislature, but it will
be disappointed. Mayor Hoos wrote to State
Comptroller W. S. Hancock Inquiring about the
matter, and tbe Comptroller consulted Attorney
General S It. Ore). The result Is that Comp
troller Hancock w rulo to M ayor Hoos ns follow s:
" My action under this law will be not to pay
municipalities any of the addltion-vl moneys al
lotted to tbem by tho law of 1897 from taxes
assessed In tho 5 car 1B07 and payable In the
year 1H0S for the reason that they will be as
sessed previous to Nov, 1, 18"7, nnd the law
only applies to those assessed after that d ite.
"Your second inquiry as to tho amount ot
new railroad property likely to b assessed can
not be answered until after assessments aro
actually made."
