PERTH A 1*1 BOY EVENING NEWS.
VOL. II NO. 276 PERTH AM BOY, N. J.. TUESDAY, JUNE 23 1903 SECOND EDITION MINISTERS ~ INDIGNANT. Several Express Their View of the Boat Race Sunday to a News Reporter. UP TO PROSECUTOR. Claim that the Law was Broken and that the Prosecutor was Defied and that It Is now for the Authorities to Act Want Christian People to do their Part. The ministers of tnig city are very indignant over the ooat race of the Danish Social A. C. on Sunday. They thought that the letter from f *6secut or Voorhees had put a stop to the affair. They are inclined to feel that the matter is now up to the prosecutor. When Rev. S. Trevena Jackson, pastor of Simpson M. E. cnurch, was seen by a Nows reporter this morning he did not hesitate to donounco the action of the athletic club in round terms. He said: "I think that public sentiment should be so aroused over the matter that the people would get together and do something. Do you know what they would do in Denmark to the people who fly in the face of the 1 iw when they had been forbidden to do so? They would lock up'the law breakers and I think I know enough about the country to say that they would be punished severely. "On Sunday morning I shall take for my snbjeot ' A Sabbath Day with Jesus Christ' and I will probably spoak of the race. ' ' Rev. Percy R. Ferris, pastor of the Baptist church, said that he believed it the duty of Christian people to up hold the Sabbath day and that he would do all in his power to make that day better here. "Iam greatly grieved," he said, "to know that those young men, cap able of being of so much use for law fulness and righteousness, should place themselves before the people as lawbreakers and defying the prosecut or. As the matter now stands it seems to me it is out of the ministers' hands all together and that it is a matter for the proseoutor to consider. It soems to be the duty of the Christian people to let them know how they feol about the matter." Chief Burke said it was out of his powe? to stop the race and that the prosecutor was the only one who could act. Quinine hair tonic and dandruff euro.

RELEASE iSTEMPORARY McPhillips, who Takes Rochelle's Place, is of Manhattan College and is in Good Form? Has Been in This City Before? Marions will be up Against Star A. C. of Newark, Saturday. The voice of the fan has been heard bv the mangemont of the Marions and his counsel has been heeded. Begin ning next Saturday a now pitcher will be on the firing line and "Gas" Roohelle will go into temporaty re tirement. The work of Rochelle this season has not come np to expectations for the simple reason that he has not been in condition to pitch. He has been unablj) to field his posi tion properly owing to the weakness of his legs and tho speed with which he used to deliver the ball has' gone because of the ravages of typhoid. When a man reached first for the visitors it was possible for him to steal second and third with ease be cause Roohelle could not get the ball away from him with any degree of alacrity. His slowness was beginning to have a demoralizing effect on the team and a change was seen to be imperative. So it was decitfed with much regret, because of his faithful services in the past, to release Rochelle temporarily and seenre another pitcher. This has been done and today the management of the Marions announces that McPhillips, of Manhattan Col lege, will be the regular pitcher of the locals hereafter. McPhillips is no stranger here, having pitohed sevoral games for the Marions. He pitohed the game against Orange last year in which the visitors won by a soore of 4 to 1. With fair support McPhillips would have shut Orange out that day as he let them down with five hits and struck out nine men. Last year he was with the Plattsburgh team of the Northern New York League and this year he has been pitching fine ball for the Manhattan College team. He has had offers from several East ern League teams, but he decided to remain in New York this summer and pitch only one game a week. The offer of the Marions was acceptable to him and he says he is glad to come to Perth Am boy. With McPhillips in the box there is no semi-professional team in the vicinity of New York that has any thing on the Marions. Saturday he will oppose the Star A. O. of Newark, one of the oldest teams in New Jersey. The calibre of the Stars was exhibit ed Sunday when they easily defeated Oarsey's West New York team. They will probably have Kinney who de feated the Marions last season for Milburn, in the box, and Healey as catcher. The Stars are playing good ball and will give the fans a lone on McPhillip's ability as a twirling artist. Sweet Clover blossom, perfume Very lasting.

THE JUDCE'S VIEW. Held that Although Johnson was not the one who Stole the Rope he was Equal ly Guilty Because he Allowed it to be Taken? Detective Huff on the Stand Lawyer Cowenhover was Surprised. (Special to the Evening News ) New Brunswick, June 23 ? Charles Johnson, of the barge Telophone of the Mo Williams Transportation Com pany, was convicted yesterday by Judge Schenck of the larceny of rope from his own boat. Johnson did not actually steal the roDe, which was worth about $3C, but he sat by on the dock at Perth Amboy and saw a man named Eldridge load the lines up into a sloop and sail off with them. The conviction came as a big surprise to the man's lawyer, Judge C. T. Cowen hoven, who thought he had his client free. There were two witnesses against Johnson, James Hall and Richard Qreen. The former gave testimony as to the line stolen and that, found at the junk dealers to bo alike in appear ance. Richard Qreen, a watchman for the Lehigh Valley railroad, swore to Johnson being on the dock when the rope was taken away and to hiB asking Johnson about it. Judge Cowenhoven called Officer Huff to prove his side of the case. He brought out the faot that Johnson told Huff the man who stole the rope was in the saloon when he arrested him and the lawyer asked why it was he did not arrets Eldridge then. Officer Huff said he had a warrant for John son and served it first before looking for the other man who had disappear ed when he returned. The testimony all in Judge Cowen hoven moved for the discharge of Johnson. Judge Schenck asked the counsel why the man was not guilty as an acessory to the fact, in that he sat by and saw the goods carted away without resisting when the articles taken were in his charge legally as the captain of the craft. Lawyer Cowenhoven argued all sorts of ways to convince the Judge that he had a wrong conception of the law but the Judge was firm and the man was found guilty. Sweet Clover blossom perfume.
