ANOTHER PETITION. The paving of Rector street took definite form at the meeting of the Board of Aldermen last night when an ordinance was passed on first read ing to have the street paved from Market to Lewis streets with the Warren Bitulithic pavement. The ordinance was laid over, under the rules, until next meeting, when it will probably be taken up on second and third readings. Other action was taken to get the street prepared for the improvement. Before the ordinance was introduced a petition was read asking first, that the width of the sidewalks on botn sides of Rector street, between Market and Lewis streets, be increased to 12% feet; secondly, that a curb be laid on both sides of Rector street between the streets mentioned, and, thirdly, that it be paved with the Warren Bitulithic pavement. This petition was signed by Perrine and Buckelew and Charles S. Appleby for the Apple by estate. This was referred to the committee. Following this the Committee on Streets and Sewers reported on the petition which was referred to its last meeting. The report read that as three-fourths of the owners were in favor of the pavement and that as the preliminaries were not required, that the petition be advertised and the committee be authorized to have pro file and surface maps of the improve ment. This was aooepted and recom mendations adopted. Later the ordinance providing for the work was introduced. It calls for the Warren Bitulithic pavement, for 1 Q1 fnnt uiHotn'illf w nnrh with lf» infih blue stone, the city to pay one-thinl the cost and the other two-thirds be assessed upon the property owners. The Street Commissioner was in structed to notify property owners along the line of the street where the improvement is to be, to have all necessary connections made with the pipes in the street, bringing their connections to the curb line. This is to prevent the pavement being cut after it has been put down. As has already been stated in the News, it is the intention to go ahead with this work and have these house connections made so that the trenches will have the winter to settle and be gin the paving in the spring. actioOf EJECTMENT. The city attorney, last night, was instructed to begin a suit of ejectment against William Buchanan to force him to move in the fenoe on the north side of his property at Smith and State streets. The fence is along the Smith street front of the property. At the meeting of the Board of Aldermen, last night, City Attorney Hommann presented a written opinion as follows: “In the matter of the encroachment by William Buchanan on Smith street, I am informed that any attempt to j remove the fence will be resisted. The proper oourse for the citv to pur sue is to bring its action of ejectment . to recover possession of the land claim ed to be in the street.” The uldermen later passed a resolu tion instructing him that the case be commenced.

Last night at 6.30 Chief Bnrke re-1 ceived worn from Maurer that another attempt to hold up a man, was made by toughs. Captain Robert Finlay, of the steamer Rosneath, unloading asphalt at the Barber asphalt works, was the man attacked. Captain Finlay’s vessel has been at the asphalt works for about a week and during this time he had occasion to make frequent trips to New York. While on these trios he carries large sums of money about his person. It is supposed a gang has found out about the money and decided to waylay him. Ou Sunday night, it is said, he was approached by some men, but they did not molest him to any extent. Last night, however, as he was going to his vessel alter leaving the 6.28 train, a man stopped him and asked the time. Upon being told it was 6.30 he walked by the captain’s side forja short distance and then turning seized him and at the same time whistled and another man sprang from the bushes. The captain, who is a strong man, shook off his first assailant and retreated to Hilsdorf’s butcher shop. Here they gave him a revolver and he went back to the spot. The two men were still there, but they did not attempt to stop him and he continued on his wav to the boat. One man was short and made the first attack, and the other, a large fellow, came when his companion whistled. Captain Finlay says they had no weapons which he could distinguish, but says there is no doubt as to their intentions. At the time he wore a $150 watch and had over $100 in money. No clue to the highwaymen has yet been found. NEW COURT FORESTERS. Court D. C. Chase Installed in South Amboy Last Night Many Present.

Local Board of Education Needs More Money and Aldermen want to Raise it. LEGALITY IF ACTION. The Provisions of the New Law is not Known but Aldermen Pass Resolution to Borrow the Des'red Sum from the Sinking Fund to be Repaid as Soon as State Money is Received. Perth Amboy is feeling the effects of the muddle over the school law. The uncertainty as to the provisions of the new law gave the Board of Aldermen something to think about at their meeting last night and the question arose as to the legality of the action they were timing. It seems the Board of Education is short of funds and has not sufficient money on hand to meet the pay roll of the teachers this month. Money is expected from the State, but until this is received, their hands are tied. In order that tnere might be no delay in paying the teachers, however, the Board of Aldermen were asked to borrow money to help them ont. Accordingly a resolution was passed borrowing $1,500 from the sinking fund, the amount to be paid back as soon as the State funds are available. Alderman-at-Large Eckert raised the question of legality, as the provisions of the new school law was not known and, as the old law was unconstitu tional, it was hard to tell what to do. Alderman Campbell suggested re ferring the whole matter to the Com mittee on Judiciary, to investigate what rights the aldermen had. This, it was learned, would be too late, and the resolution went through and an effort will be made to learn exactly what effect the new school law will have on the council’s action.

Mrs. Donegan, who had been out calling, was returning home, and see ing the child’s dress begin to blaze up, she ran to her assistance. The flames were consuming the lower part of the child’s dress, but by quickly rolling the child in a pile of sand and spreading as much of it as possible over the dress, Mrs. Donegan finally managed to smother the flames. Both the child and Mrs. Donegan were badly burned, but only for the timely arrival of Mrs. Donegan, the child would have been burned to ueiuii. ouiii r*3Buut?i auu resuueu art? getting along nicely today, although they will be confined indoors for some time.
