Kiernan will be back in his old place
at short. Conditions at Springfield
were not altogether satisfactory to
him and he has returned to New York
At third base will be found a new
man, Cohalan. This young player
was considered a star last year at
Manhattan College. Hei s a fast field
er and a good hitter. lie is recom
mended by McPhillips who will pitch
his first game for the Marions tomor
row. The locals will also have an
extra player on hand in the person of
Bird, a fast outfielder, who made a
fine impression when he was here
with the Milburn team last season.
The Stars, however, are a fast team
and they deolare themselves confident
of taking the locals into camp. Either
Gilroy, an old leaguer, or Kinney
will do the pitching. Other familiar
names are Mills, who played with
Irvington, Devereaux, Cavanaugh, two
former Murray Hill players, and Mc
Guire, who played with the Marions
during 1901. McGuire will be re
membered by the fans as the famous
wearer of the red pants. He was a
popular player here and a hard worker.

Night and Took Action on
ASSISTANT LIBRARIAN '
A Substitute was Also Appointed? Books
of History and Travel to be Placed on
the Shelves? Steel Racks to be in new
Building Capacity can be Increased?
Waiting for A'chitects Retnrn.
A special meeting of the Library
Board was held last night foi the pur
pose of appointing an assistant librar
ian. Miss Emma Fraser was appoint
ed as the assistant and the board also
decided to have on the list a substi
tute assistant, so Miss Marie Bradley,
of Market street, was appointed to fill
that position. The board also decid
ed to purchase a complete set of
Charles Dickens works, and a number
of volumes of history and travel, as
it seems a number of people of this
city would rather have them than
These will be the last books pur
chased until the librarj is moved to
the new building, unless a special
bargain is offered.
The board is now waiting the re
turn of Mr. Greenley, the architect,
who is now in Europe. He is to tell
what color is to be used in the wood
work of the new library. At the next
meeting of the board, which will be
held in July, the furniture for the
new building will be purchased.
The book racks will be made of
steel. They will be seven feet high.
The racks will be erected in the back
room of the library. As the circula
tion of the library increases the racks
will be fixed in such a way that other
sections can be added to them by
placing steel rods on the top of them.
The holding capacity of the library is
supDosed to be 50,000 vo'umes, but by
this scheme the holding capacity will
hold just four times 01 200,000 volumes
FOR FLAG DRILL.

this meeting, the cadets decided to
hold another meeting. Tuesday night

after the speaking of General Chaffee,
will be a flag drill by the cadets under
their commander, John Danner.
Every meeting night they are put
through this drill.
New officers will be eleoted, it is i
expected, at the meeting on Tuesday i
night. Albert Krogh is up for presi- 1

REV. CHARLES J. EV ERSON.
The accompanying pioture is one of
Perth Amboy's sons who has won
honors for himself and will shortly
ko west to fill one of the Metbortist
Episcopal pulpits in Indiana.
Rev. Charles J. Everson has just,
graduated from Taylor University at
Upland, Ind. , and is now home for a1
few days vacation visiting his parents, '
Mr. and Mrs. Anton Everson. of 177 |
State street. One week from next (
Monday Mr. Everson will return to
Upland where he will be married. He
will then enter the Indiana Conference
as a Methodist minister. Mr. Ever
soa's-bride-to-be is Miss Alice Smith, i
of Upland, Ind., who, for two years
past, has been secretary to the presi
dent of the university where Mr.
Mr. Everson was born in Philadel
phia, but his parents soon moved to
this city where he received his early
education. In 1899 he went to Nyack,
N. Y. , as a student in the Christian
and Missionarv Alliance. Graduating
there two years later he went to In
diana where lie entered Taylor Uni
versity from which he has just grad
uated in the English Theological
Last summer while Mr. Everson
was spending his vacation here, he
preached twenty-eight sermons here
and in the towns of this vicintiy.
During the month of August he sup

SEA BREEZE- CAY.
E ?eryone is glad to see the sunshine
again, but none more than the pleas
nre resort managers. Ai Boynton
Beach a new feature has been added
which will prove a decided attraction.
This is a boat, the H. G. Ellis, to be
mn from South Ambov, Tottenville
and this city to the beach every after
noon and evening. The landing here
is to be made at the steamboat dock
at the foot of Smith street. The first
triD will be made tomorrow. The
boat leaves Sonth Amboy at 1.80 to
morrow afternoon, leaves Perth Am
boy at 1.45 o'clock and Tottenville at
3.10. The last trip up, from this city
is 8.45 o'clock. This will doubtless
be a great attraction as it avoids the
long walk after alighting from the
trolley $ars and also gives a pleasant
sail up the sound.
At Sea Breeze the weather has made
the season backward. The two boats,
Josephine and Etta May have not been
running during the wet weather, one
being sufficient to carry the traffic,
but with the warm weather again, .
both will go into commission and the
3rowds will be attracted to the breezy j
resort on the point. It is a delightful <

Found Guilty of Manslaughter
by Jury in New Brunswick
-Case Closed Yesterday.
SENTENCE JULY 7.
Defense Was that Defendant had Acted in
Self Defense? Judge's Charge? State

Witnesses Tell of Skimmon's Good
Special to the Evening News.
New Brunswick, June 26:? John
Skimmons, accused of the murder of
his stepfather, Henry Jacob?, of South
Amboy, has been found guilty of man
slaughter. The Judge fixed July 7 as
the date for sentence.
The trial was ended yesterday after
noon with the iudge's charge to the
jury. The State had tried to prove
Skimmons guilty of murder in the
first degree. The case was rushed
through as quickly as possible and to
this end anight session was held.
There were no startling developments
throughout the trial. The jury was
satisfied the murder was not premedi
The defense was that Skimmon's
action was in self-defense. It was
claimed that he had gone to visit his
mother and had been attacked by his
stepfather and had simply defended
himself from a murderous assault.
EXPECT TO BREAK STRIKE.
Bosses Say They Will Have Plenty
at Work Monday.
The trouble between the boss paint
ers and the journeymen painters seems
to be growing wider and wider every
day. Today the bosses have a number
of men at work and claim that by 1
Monday the strike will be entirely
broken because they will have plenty '
of men here. Two new firms of puint
es have been formea and today all of
the journeymen are at work either in '
Tottenville, Woodbridge, or this city. 1
The new firms claim that thev have 1
plenty of work and will keep the men 1
oging lor a number of n onfts. The 1
painters say the reason they cannot 1
prevent non union men working is 1
because at the present time they are '
all doing old work. When they start
on some of the new buildings the
painters claim thev will call off ali '
STILL THEY COME.

People are Discussing the Route
the Traction Company Will
Take When Change is Made
Inquiries at the Raritan Traction Com
pany's Office Were Referred to J. C,
McCoy who Could not be Located This
Morning- Down High Street to Fayette
is Suggested as the Probable.
Much interest is manifested in the
story published in the Evening News
Wednesday telling of the radical
changes to be made within the next
twelve months by the Staten Island
Rapid Transit Railroad which includes
changing the ferry house in this city
from the foot of Smith street to Fay
ette street. This evidently means
many changes in the city.
The new location for the ferry house
will have the greatest effect on the
traction company, whose tracks now
run down Smith street. All inquiries
as to the movements of the trolley
company made at the office of the
Raritan Traction Company were re
ferred to Mr. McCoy, by Superintend
ent Rock. An effort to see Mr. Mc
Coy was unsuccessful as he was not
in his office at the Raritan Copper
Works. Very little could be learned
officially. It seems certain, however,
that the traction company will extend
its line to the new ferry, but just
what route will be chosen is undecid
ed or at least is not ready for publi
cation. Those interested in the matter
make several suggestions. One is to
run through Fayette street fiY>m State
street and then around iVflmN-^Jreet.
The one which seems the most
however, is that the company will
ask for a franchise down High street
from Smith street, thence to the ferry
at the foot of Fayette street and
thence aronnd Front street and up
Smith street again. This will give
the cars one continuous run and save
the swinging of the pole at the top of
Smith street hill and the turning of
seats. The cars, as they come down
Smith street, will turn into High
street and around to Front street and
up Smith. This rim cannot be con
armed by any of the officials of the
road and is merely a plan mapped out
by those who are disoussing the
It is expected that Fayette street
will develop into a business street and
will give the plaoe more of the city
ippearance. The abandonment of the
Smith street ferry leaves a location
for a public dock.
The men who have made the largest
fortunes in business are those who
have been the most extensive adver
