Tho announcement came from Harrlsbitrg late this nftornoon that tho Hon. James flay Gordon, nn Assoclato Judgo of tho Court of Common Mcas. had placed his resignation In tho hands ot Gov. Hastings, and that It had boon accepted. Tho nen caused a sensation here. Judgo Gordon mm presiding during the month of November on tho bench of one of the two Criminal Court of tho county. It Is In this court that tlio trial of Senator Quay will bo henrd, but Judge Gor don would not hae presided at the trial. He distinctly said thut undor no circumstances would he appear on the bench during tlio Quay case, The Judge was In court on Monday and pursued his usual judicial functions yesterday. To-day ho wns absent from the bench. Tho suddenness of the resignation gaverlso to a variety of rumors. Judgo Gordon prior to his olovallon to tho bench was a member of the Legislature nnd an active Democratic politician. Ho has oer slnco been allied with factional Interests, and within recent years ho has been strongly advocated as a Democratic candidate for Governor on accountot his friendship for tho Itepubllcan factlonlsts opposed to Quay. Ho Is a sound money Democrat of pronounced type, His friends charged his detent for tho Democrntlo nomination for Goornor to tho in lluenco or Quay. Judgo Gordon, when appointed, was tho youngest of tho Judges on the local bench Ho is now 43 venm old. He wns first appointed lo tho bench by Gov. l'ntttson In 1880. to fill it, vacaucy: and In 188d was olected to n lull term or ten years. Ho wns ngnln re-clectod In 181HJ. Ho savi that his resignation wns duo to tho limited compensation paid to Judges. The salary of r Judge is 57,500 a year. In nn investigation begun last spring Into the charges of bribery and corrupt legislation In the City Councils Judgo Gordon was ono'of two members ot tho local judiciary who conducted an extraordinary inquiry from the bench. In tho course of which it was developed as testi mony that tho famous Kehuvlkill Valley wator legislation wan originally promoted in this city by one of tho Justices of tho Supremo Court of Pennsylvania. An Associate Jtistlco of tho hlghuroourt subsequently denounced tho entire proceeding aa Irregular and without warrant inlaw. The bribery Investigation en gendered bltternnlmositics and Intensified tho opposition of Uordon's pollticul enemies'. (During tho campaign prior to tho lute county election tho Democratic candidate for District Attorney, who wns nftcrwnrd defeated, made u bitter personal attack on Judgo Gordon. Dis trict Attorney Graham. vho accepted a chal lenge to appear ill the meeting to answer attacks madoupon hisown official record. arose on the same stngo and defended Judgo Gordon, nlludlnctohim as one of his chosen friends, nnd a pure-minded nnd upright judge. Counsel for the defence In tho prosecution of United States Senator Quay played thciropen Ing move to-day for delay. Senator Quay nnd his son. Itichanl, nnd ox-Btate Treasurer B.J. Haywood nppeaied at the bar of the court at 11 o'clock with their counsel. Tho court was tho ordlnurv tribunal fortho trial of criminal cases. Judgo Thomas K.Jtlnletter occupied the bench. Judgo Gordon was not In court. As soon as n petty criminal caso was dleiwued ot. District Attorney Graham called the Quay case. Sena tor Quay's counsel mado a reiiuest tor a con tinuance on the ground that insufficient time had been granted to examine tho substancoof the Indictments. Tho case was postponed finally until Monday next. SCHOOL JlOAMt EXONERATES niST. Superintendent Snjilcn Did Not Strnl City Property; Others Suspected. The Board of Education at its meeting yes terday exonerated ( 1). J. Snyder. Superin tendent of School Buildings, from the charges mado against him last spring by John W. Franklin and James Dennlson, formerem ployeos of tho Building Department. He was charged with misuse of public property and appropriating certain portions of it to Ills own use. The committee which has been investi gating the matter all summer reported that he was In no way connected with the defects in school buildings mentioned in tho accusing affidavits and a vote of confidence in htm was passed. Evidence was found, it was stated, whioh justifies further Investigation into tho work of certain contractors and employees ot the Building Department. The committeo was continued to mnko the investigation. A resolution passed by the board practically nuts into the hands of City Superintendent of Schools Maxwoll tho control and distribution ot all library funds for IfcStll. amounting to $42,000. and also the selection of books, giving him two additional clerks for the worK. Sev eral members or the boa re. objected to this and were joined by Mr. Maxwell, who thought, centralization might go too far and that Brook lyn's library funds should be kept separate on the ground that it treats school matters dif ferently Irom the other boroughs. Commis sioner Agar held that the Idea was merely to co-ordinate all school libraries in one system, and the resolution was passed. Much opposition also appeared to a resolu tion which puts the nauios of teachers on all eligible lists in a certain llxed order of merit, taking into consideration studies, experience, personality and standing on examination as indications of merit. Commissioner Ander son held that this limited: choice and: made necessary a sort of automatlo selection of teachers, promoting the first on a list made out by a mere system of marking without re gard to personal Illness. Commissioner Agar believed in the system and was supported by a majority of the board. A recommendation was made to Comptroller Coler that payment of salaries In all boroughs be made twelve times a. year Instead of ten times, between September and June. Al though teachers earn their salaries within the latter period the majority prefer, it was re ported, a llxed income every month. At present Manhattan and the Bronx and Rich mond boroughs pay salaries every month, while Brooklyn and Queens make ten pay ments a ear. It was also proposed to sep arate janitors' salary lists from teacher' so that the latter need not be delayed tor consid eration by the Civil Service Commission, and several other measures were recommended which may bring pay day for teachers nearer to the first ot the month.
