All South Amboy Turned Out To
See The Blaze Which Was Part
of Old Steven's Estate.
An alarm of fire was r S? a little
before 9 o'clock last evening from^box
27. The blaze was in an old barn
baok of the Home Soliool, Dr. Trega
nown's and other houses stiuated on
Main street.
There is quite a history attached to
the old barn. It belonged to the old
Steven's estate and was built about 60
years ago. ' Some say that a lot of
marble was packed away in the barn,
valued at several hundred dollars.
The firemen very quickly responded
to the call which was turned in by
Mr. Jauoes Carberry, and worked with
a will. If the wind had been blowing
harder it would probably have set fire
to a house nearby and also to the
house on Main"!"street. Great sparks
flew towards tTie houses. The barn
was burned to the foundation.
It seemed as if all the people of
Amboy had turned out. It was said
that as no danger signals had been
put out by the firemen one of the trol
ley cars ran over one of the lengths
of hose that laid across the tracks and
cut it in two.

Organized Labor Takes Hand
In Postal Investigation.
All Sorta of Complatnta Bring For
mulated? A "Promotion Rlns" In
Brooklyn (lie I.alrat Report
to the Department.
WASHINGTON. April 18.? The indi
cations are that organized labor will
become a party to the investigation of
affairs of the postofflce department. A
special committee of the Central Labor
union of this city, which has been
secretly considering the matter, has
formulated charges of favoritism, in
competency, etc., a'gainst certain of the
officials of the mail equipment division
of the department. The charges,
which probably will be filed with the
postmaster general, atllege that mail
bags that do not conform to the speci
fications have been accepted by the
chief of the division, Colonel Thomas
P. Graham.
Other charges allege, among other
things, that a worthy and needy white
woman is discriminated against in fa
vor of a negro woman employed there;
that the forewoman of the sewing
room used offensive language toward
her subordinates; that when the ma
chine operators were reduced from $2
per diem to $1.75 per diem the salaries
of the superintendent and some of the
other officers were raised from $150 to
$200 per annum; that the suspension of
one clerk was illegal and another un
just; that engineers are worked over
time without compensation; that the
foreman of the lock shop is not a lock
maker, and that recommendations for
promotions are not based on merit.
Iteports that a "promotion ring" ex
isted to control promotions in the
Brooklyn postofflce similar to that
which is now being investigated in
New York city have been brought to
the attention of the postoffice depart
ment. It is stated at the department,
however, that as yet there is no evi
dence of such a rlnfe in its possession.

The movement for the nine hour
day which was inaugurated at the
International convention of the Inter
national Machinist's Union, which
was held in Toronto in June, 1901,
though resulting in several very hard
and prolonged fights in some sections
of the states, has ultimately proved
entitely successful, and the nine honr
day is now flrmlv established in all
the big shops, which at first so stub
bornly resisted the movement.

ed agreements with the striking paint

ciation has signed any agreement as

do not intend to do so. The strikers
assert that of the seven hnndred men
who went out last week more than 350
are at work.
The Master Plumbers' Association
of Newark is the butt of much adverse
oritioism at this time, owing to the
charges made against it by the Board
of Health to the effect that a majority
of the bosses affiliated with the organ
ization are involved in a combination
which had had the effect of increasing
the price for sewer connection from
seventy-five to one hundred per cent
over the figure which was asked for
the same work a year ago.
