William E. Wmant, of Newark, Attached the Vessel for a Claim
Which he has Against the Nautical Preparatory School? Walter
Thompson, of the Raritan Dry Docks Places Valuation.
That part of the ship Young Amer
ica now under course of construction
for the Nautioal Preparatory Scnool
of Rhode Island, at the plant of the
Porth Amboy Shipbuilding and En
gineering Company in this city, has
been seized by Sheriff Carman to
satisfy an attachment proceeding in
stituted by William E. Winant, of
Nowark, designer of the boat. Winant
his a claim of $4,800 against the ship.
Dr. W. E. Ramsay, president of the
shipbuilding company, in an inter
view with a News reporter upon the
subject this morning, said :
"I am thoroughly familiar with all
the cironmstances connected with the
Winant claim against the Nautical
Preparatory School, and consider the
claim a most unjust one."
, Dr. Ramasy ventured his opinion
that whon the whole matter was final
ly nettled in court Winant will be a
vary sad man. Previous to the time
whon his connections with the Nauti
cal Preparatory School were severed,
Dr. Ramsay said that Winant had not
boon to Perth Amboy for some time
for fear that he, Dr. Ramsay, would
cause Winant's arrest. Further pro
cordings promise to bo of sensational
character if all the doctor told the
Nows reporter comes true.
The right of Sheriff Carman to
attach the boat is disputed at the
shipyards, the officers claiming that
the ship belongs to the Porth Amboy
Shipbuilding and Engineering Com
pany since the school has not made
any payments upon it. It was said
that the Nautical School had obtained
enough subscriptions to pay for the
construction of the ship, but hau been
unable to collect tho monoy thus sub
The boat is to cost more than
$150,000. The keel and dock are part

Walter Thompson, superintendent
of the Raritan Dry Dock Company,
acting as appraiser for the Sheriff,
placed the present value of the boat
at $4,500 and of the material on hand
for its construction at $40,000. The
next move will be to have an auditor

rush of work at the shipyard made it

been abandoned. It has also been
stated that the full complement of 250
cadets had been subscribed for the
first year's oruise and 210 for the sec

Tho need of a pavement in Washing
ton street was manifested this morn

became fast in the mud in that thor

For a time tho driver tried to have
his own team move the wagon, but lie
was unsuccessful and an extra team
had to be summoned. With the four
horses pulling at once tho wagon was
finally gotton from its position. Tho
fact that Washington street is ono of
the principal thoroughfares in tho
northoru soction of tho city, makes

noticeable. An ordinance has been
passed by the Board of Aldermen to

When George A. Schultes and Miss
Matilda ^lara Schuek left their homes
in a cnach at 6.30 o'clock this morn
ing and drove to St. Mary's chnrch
on Centre street, to be married, they
were congratulating themselves on
the clever way thoy had outwitted
their many friends whom they knew
would be up to the usual pranks.
But they counted wrong, for when
they started down the steps of the
church after the ceremony, it seemed
to them that rice came from every
nook and corner and for a few seconds
it appoared to rain rice. The newly
wedded couple got into the carriage
and were driven rapidly away.
The bride was dressed in a blue
traveling dress with a hat to match.
The bridesmaid was Miss Mary

Test Case Now on in Cumber
land County Which Will Ce
cide the Matter.
Upon presentation of the facts by
tho Cumberland connty assessors, the
state board of taxation has decided
that the value of the interest repre
sented in the oyster beds of the state
must be taxed, and that the interests
in the oysters planted is the same as
personal property in the cattle, poul
try, etc. of the farmer. A protest
has boen sent in against the decision.
Trenton, June 30.? The upholding
of the Cumberland County Board of
Assessors by the State Board of Taxa
tion in the matter of the right to tax
the oyster industry will now undoubt
edly bring into the courts the final
determination of the question, which
has been discussed for the last eighteen
years. Tho Cumberland county as
sessors will proceed under the ruling
and tax the industry as personal pro
perty. The oyster beds have never
been taxed, and the State's only
revenue from them has been the rent
als paid bv oyster growers, who hold
leases from the State. The|oystermen
of the State are up in arms against
tho proposition.
No Work for a Helper and the Un
ion Men Quit? Work Still
The union steamfitters at the Rari
tan Copper Works, four in number,
are out on a strike. There is some
trouble botween the management of
that concern and the union in regards
to the employment of a helper for a
steamfitter. In conversation with a
News man a steamfitter said :
"The whole trouble is this, a mem
ber of the union, who was employed
in the cellar of the tank room, had
one helper. He was notified that
after a certain date he would
have to do that work himself, as there
was not enough work to keep two men
going all the time. The union rules
say that every steamfitter shall have
a helper, so the steamfitter quit and
the rest went out in sympathy with
him. "
There seoins to be bnt little chance
o* the men returning to work as the
company has apparently filled their
places, and work does not seem to
have stopped.
