The rhtlndetphln Jurist. Well Known In
rolltlcs. llrra Vp Itla rinre.
rntLATiRt.PiiiA, Nov. 23. 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.

Adolaldo Merrlam.who is suing John W.lter- W
rlam of 1'. II. l'onsccn A Co.. tobacco mannac- JhILH
tutors, for separation, moved yesterday before 7lj
Justice Dlschoff of tho Supremo Court for '!
alimony and counsel feo. Thoy wcre.-mnrrlcd ii!
In 1882 nnd scimrated two years ogov ,Bho,8ay -
that ho has an Incomo of $1 5,000. n year. In (!
opposition to her motion Mnrrinm sit up thnt !Ai
his wlfo has nn cstntn ot hor own'on, which sha .,4i
can draw for her support and thut nJmsband Is !
not obllced to supixjrt his wlfo when she lias Iftai
an estate RiiMeloritto support her. ix?.
Justice HIsoholT decides1 that n wife Is not "v'aB
obliged to draw the principal of her estate to 3(ti
support her. but that the Income will lie taken
Into consideration when a motion Is made lai
ngninst a husband for nllmony. It appears 4n 1
this case, ho say, that tho wile's income Is not iL
siilllolent to support her in the vvayhewnn "-i
maintained by hor huxband. so he allows her 'JL
alimony of $l'jr a month. Counsel fee Is de- &
pled, becauso the Justlco nays that the $350 l l
which ahu hns already paid hor lawyer la 3 H
enough to carry through tho action. w
