LOCAL INTEREST IN
THE COMINC ELECTION. If Constitutional Amendment is Adopted Cases can go to Court of Errors at Once All of the Perth Amboy lawyers and many residents are very much inter ested in the proposed constitutional amendments which will be submitted to the people of this State for accept * anoe or rejection on the 22d of Sep tember next. The particular amend meht in whioh they are interested, is that which does away with the Supreme Court in oases in whioh writs of error are granted. By the adoption of this amendment, all cases in which writs of error are granted, will go immediately to the Ooart of Errors and Appeals for con sideration. As it is now it may be tskeri to that coilrt of last resort, but in many oases it is first taken to the Supreme Oourt, and then if the de cision is not satisfactoiy to both par ties, the oase may be carried into the Oourt, of Errors. By the ndoDtion of the proposed amendment, the expense of carrying the case into the Supreme Oourt will be done away with entirely, a feature whioh is greatly appreciated by those who are obliged to litigate. It will practically make the Oourt of Errors a continuous court, and decisions will be made and handed down a srreat deal quioker than now and the legal business greatly expedited. The State Bar Association lias approved the amendment, and as in dividuals the members will work for its adoption. It will greatly benefit lawyers who are obliged to oarry their oases into the Oourt of Errors, and their clients will be benefited in that they will not have to incur anywhere near as much expense as under the present system.

Neero Unlawfully Held. MACON, Ga., June 25.? In the United States court Judge Emery Specr im posed a fine of each on .three young men, William Shy, Arthur Glaw son and Robert Turner, for holding a negro in involuntary servitude. He sus pended the fine under' conditions. In fining the young men he said: "In view of the fact that it is the first crime of this kind which has ever occurred in Georgia and because of the frank con fession of the young men sentence is imposed in order to convince the public that the purpose of the court is to warn and deter others from a like crime. During good behavior the fine is sus pended upon payment of $100 by each party." The offense was that the young men, who are prominent farm ers, caught a negro who was in debt to them, gave him a whipping and made him go to work for them. Judge Specr said that the problem of the times could not be solved by harsh measures and that the laws of Georgia were against such treatment. Extra SeMsion In Kanaas. TOPEKA, Kan., June 25.?

The calling out of the Chicago and Alton, men may cause a general strike of all freight handlers employed by railroads center ing in Chicago. According to Presi dent Curran of the Freight Handlers' ur'.on, unless the management of the Alton road shall recede from the stand taken it will be necessary for him to extend the strike#to the other lines to enforce the demands of the union. There is no question of wages in the controversy, as less than a month ago all the roads signed a new wage scale granting the freight handlers a sub stantial increase in wages. President Currnn asserts that two men were dis charged because they were prominent in the Freight Handlers' union, and he says these two men must be reinstat ed. The railroad management declares that the men wcro discharged for neg lect of duty and cannot be taken back. Strike Shuts B>?vn Paper Mtlln. GLENS FALLS. N. Y.. June 25.? The firemen employed at the International Paper company's mills at Fort Edward have quit work. This, in addition to the strike of unskilled laborers, com pelled the closing down of the entire plant. The firem n's grievance Is that they could not do all the work required of them, as several had been laid off. The unskilled laborers say they will not go back unless they receive 20 cents an hour. The continuance of the shut down now seems to rest on the support given the strikers by the skilled men. These have it in their power to break the strike should they consent to work with other than union laborers. The Temple of Confuclim.

That the af foctlon of New York for Sir Thomai LIpton has not iKminished was shown When he arrived by the White Stai liner Oceanie. All the way from the Narrows to the pier the bis ship moved to the music of tooting whistles and hearty chr><?rs. Sir Thomas was delighted as a boy at the evidences of good feeling and an nonnced that if he does not succeed in lifting the cup in August he considers it his duty to make another attempt. The foggy weather outside retarded the progress of the Oceanic, and it was past noon when the familiar scenes in side the Horseshoe greeted the eye of Sir Thomas Lipton. His steam yacht, the Erin, fully dressed with flags, was awaiting the Oceanic in the lower bay and escorted the big ship to quarantine. As soon as the ocean vessel stopped at quarantine to let the health and cus toms officers abourd the Privateer, with the reception committee aboard, went alongside. A ladder was lowered from a companion way, and General Corbln scrambled up to the deck of the Oceanic, closely followed by John D. Crimmins and the othpr members of the committee. Sir Thomas greeted each of them by name? in fact, he greeted all those who came aboard by name, and he had not seen some of them in five years. Re porters who had met him on his previ ous trips to New York were accosted by name, and incidents were recalled by Sir Thomas that had entirely es caped their recollection. The Irish sportsman wore his famil iar suit of blue serge, with a yachting eap, a blue necktie and tan shoes. Be side him as he greeted the American committee were William Fife, Jr., de signer of the three Shamrocks, and his three secretaries? West, Wood and Puncan. General Corbin's first duty was to ex tend to Sir Thomas the invitation to take luncheon at the White House to morrow. Sir Thomas said that it had been his intention to go aboard the Erin today and there remain until after the races, but he could not refuse the invitation. He said it would give him pleasure to go to Washington as the guest of the president. Then he posed for the photographers with unfailing good nature. He posed with his cap on and with his cap off, facing the eameras and standing side ways, leaning against the side of the cabin or braced with his arms folded. At the invitation of Sir Thomas all hands adjourned to the smoking room. When the glasses had been filled Gen eral Chaffee proposed a toast to the Shamrock IIJ, General Chaffee said that if the cup must be lost the Ameri can people would rather see Sir Thom as win It than anybody else.
