Henry's Name was Chosen—Committee Waited upon Him and He has Agreed to Run. - Harry Conard has declined to accept the assembly nomination on the Re publican ticket. He reached this decision several days ago, but not until his letter declining the honor reached the committeemen, was nis action made public. As a result the Republican county delegates from this city met in the office of the Bishop Company, Scheuer Building, last night, to select a man to name in his place. Dr. F. C Henry was chosen and his name will be presented to the committee appointed to fill vacancies. It is probable that he will receive the nomination. After the meeting was called last night Mr. Conard’s letter was read and his decision not to run was accept ed with much regret. The uncer tainty which has hung about the acceptance of Mr. Conard, had the delegates fully prepared in case he should not run, and when his letter was read last night, the name of Dr. Henry was proposed at once. A com mittee consisting of Ira B. Tice, Richard A. Peltier and Harry O. Bishop was appointed to wait upon Dr. Henry to ascertain his willingness to accept.

It has been understood that should Mr. Conard resign, the local delegates could select liis suc cessor. v When Mr. Conard was seen by a News reporter, in his office in the First National Bank, he explained his reasons for not running. “The letter containing my resigna tion was mailed Thursday night. In the letter I stated my reasons for not wanting to remain on the ticket. In the first place, which is my principal reason, I do not think the bank should be drawn into politics, and my other reason is, if I should become the can didate for assembly I could not give the time to botli that and my position in the bank. I do not feel that I can afford to resign my position in the bank, and try to handle both and be successful is practically out of the question. ” Dr. Henry told a News reporter that if the nomination was offered to him, he would accept it. He said that the committee had waited on him last night and told him Of their desire to suggest liis name to fill the vacancy. He said the local delegates could only recommend and the nomination must come from the committee to fill vacancies. In conversation with the reporter H. O. Bishop, one of the committee, F said: I “We were very sorry to hear that * SEXTON’S PUZZLE. This picture represents the name of an old popular song. Can you guess it?

Not having enough ready cash he offered 5,000 shares in LeRoi mine as payment. Mr. Yensel, I know him well, would rather have had taken cash but at that time of the year, not having much to do, accepted the offer. He put the shares down in the bottom of his trunk. A few years later came a man and wanted to buy these shareB. He then suspected some thing and kept the stock. These shares went to $40 each and ofr lucky tailor’s shares are now wortlr$200,000 and have earned about that amount in dividends.

A SERIOUS PROBLEM. Effort Made to Clean the Pipe but it is Found to Do so is as Expensive as to h Dr ve Another Well -Place is now Carefully Guarded to Prevent Further Mischief. One of the eight-inch artesian wells, which has recently been driven at Plant No. 3 of the Roessler-Hasslach er Chemical company, has been ruined by children. While the men have been awav the cap has been taken off and the well partly filled with brick bats. An effort has been made to get them out, but is now thought that the well is ruined and another will have to be driven. The new plant being built at Me chanic street and Buckingham avenue will consume much water and for this reason two eight-inch artesian wells were driven, one to supply plant No. 2, already erected, and one to supply No. 3, in the course of erection. One was not to be used for some time so it remained just as the driver had finish ed it, an iron pipe opening into a concrete basin. It was pot deemed unsafe to leave it thus unguarded. As it was open at the ton, children of the neighborhood, wandftringiaround the premises after work for the day was finished, discovered thel little round hole and some of thenK con ceived the idea that a stone vsVuld make a nice rattling in the pipe afcrd end up with a beautiful splash. He experimented and his supposition was correct. Wishing to share his fun he communicated his discovery to the others. The result, more stones, bricks, pieces of iron, nails and other articles handy and of the right size went down that gaping hole until just as they were about to stop it became evident it was being filled up. A few more stones and it was. Now the problem of lifting out the obstructions in the pipe is engaging the attention of those in charge. A new well may be driven, for the expense of cleaning the other will almost equal its first cost. No wav of obtaining the offend ers being found, no one was pnnished, but at present the grounds are closed and to obtain access in the day is ex tremely difficult ami after dark more difficult still.

CITIZENS BUILDING & LOAN ASS’N, 19t Illgli Street. 1 Office always open. ► - Mrs. John Takac, who lives in North Amboy, near the Woodbridge junction, was attacked in the woods between her home and this citv this morning while on her way to work in the local cigar factory. The assailant is said to be her husband and the police arrested him this morning. The woman was slashed in the face twice with a knife. She was carried to her home where she lies in a delir ious condition. A telephone message from the railroad tower summoned the police to the scene. The woman, it is said, does not live with her husband. She started to work about 6 o’clock this morning and was met in a lonely place in the woods. The woman called for help when assaulted and this scared the man away. Some of her friends hurried to her assistance and she was taken back home. An effort was then made to get medical assistance. In the meantime the husband returned to the house and, fearing that he would do more harm, the police were sum moned. At the sight of them the husband fled. He was employed at the American Smelting and Refining Company’s plant and the police went there in the hope of getting him. The man was evidently watching them, for when they left the house, he returned. A News reporter found him there^ later, out he could not speak English t. and he refused to talk through an in- 1 terpreter. From a ~weEwff-wf>o livea-?5 tls- . iiouse it was learned that the man * was supposed to be living with sever al different women and that a few days before the one who was attacked took him to task. The prisoner is now held in the lockup awaiting a hearing. It is thought the woman’s injuries are not serious. TAKES A VACATION.
