Dana Hall Crowded with' Republicans All are Members of the Organization and from all Appearances the Greatest Success is Assured-Three Candidates for Assembly Present and Make Speeches. HOLD A MASS MEETING. The Republicans turned out in full force last night at the organization of the Republican Club and stamped it a great success from the start. Between three and four hundred men were present and although the meeting was calleu to organize rather than boom the present campaign, there was much enthusiasm. All three assembly can didates were there and made speeches. The meeting was held in Dana Hall, Smith street, and was called to order at 8 o’clock by John Pfeilfer Jr., candidate for Alderman-at-Large. He told why the Republicans had ssembled and how neoessary it was to have a strong Republican club so that all of the Republicans could be brought in oont.aot with one another. Mr. Pfeilfer said he would do all he could to help the club along. He then call ed for the nomination of a chairman and Harry Conard was elected. Mr. Conard thought as he had been elected that the first and nest thing to do was to elect officers of the club, and this was done, the following gentlemen being chosen: Harrv Con ard, president, August Rossi, first vice president; George J. Plechner, second vice president; John Poulson, third vice president; George W. Yepson, recording secretary; Charles McWill Annn/iio I flO/inofarTT Anri T .dnlfl Orowell, treasurer. After the officers had been eleui'^it sugg«l#tlUlJHl’“VWW called for as to a name. Jacob Gerns suggested “The Perth Amboy Repub lican Club,’’ George Tioe thought that “TheAoung Men’s Republican Club, ” would be better, but many objected saying that old men as well as young belonged to it. Then came the sug gestion that it be made “The Union Republican Club,” including both the old and the young men. After a great deal of disoussion the name suggested and accepted was “The Republican Club of Perth Amboy.” The following press committee was then appointed: H. E. Pickersgill, D. P. Olmstead, and J. Logan Clevenger. A committee to draw up by-laws was then appointed as follows: Judge Adrian Lyon, Jens K. Jensen • and George J. Plechner. N A collection to defray the expenses f of the evening was taken up. Over $20 was realized. During the meeting the three candi dates for Assembly, J. H. Thayer Martin, Jr., of Woodbridge; Alexand er R. Fordyce, Jr., of Dayton; and Dr. Frank Henry, of this city, had Ik come in, and after the club had been ■ formed, Mr. Conard requested that p the candidates come forward and f speak.

Recorder Expresses His] Opinion Freely and Refuses to Rive the Fellow Another Chance Which he Desired—A Pitiful Story nf Continual] Abuse Told in Court this Morninj. - , Recorder Pickersgill, this morning, fined John Law $50 for abnsing his wife and children. Last night Law went to his home half intoxicated, it is said, and began to cause trouble. He routed his wife and children from their bed and drove them from the house. He then started to mix things up with the furniture. Meanwhile an officer had been sent for and when Patrolman Hanson came at 9.30 o’clock, Law was taken to the station house and his family were left in peace. This morning it developed that Law has abused his family for some time, but his wife made no complaint be cause of causing the children the shame of having their father in the police court. The tale of this long suffering, in order to prevent a public reprimand, is a pitiful one. It appear ed that the longer the man was spared the worse he became. ° Recorder Pickersgill, after hearing about these occurrences, gave the man a lecture that made him understand that he always meted out ample jus tice to men who, not only are disre spectful to their wives, . but abuse them and their children witli foul, language and fouler creatmenL The man wanted another chance. The re corder said his chance would be to raise a $50 fine or be committed until it was paid. Sewing machines for sale by Peder Olsen, 86 Smith st. 3526a-9-19-2t-e. w. tf MR. BRERETON LEAVES TODAY.

The recent hold nps at Maurer, ficti tious and real, have given rise to a question which refuses to be downed and which is becoming more emphatic as the days go by. ‘‘Why does not Maurer have better police protection?” Maurer is part of Perth Amboy, it pays taxes, very large taxes, and its residents demand that policemen be stationed there. Whenever tnere is trouble at this place the police must I be telephoned for and after they are notified it takes considerable time for them to reach the scene of trouble. The men in charge of the Asnhalt works, the American Smelting & Re fining company’s plant, and Manrer’s factory, when interviewed yesterday, i endorsed the popular demand that policemen should be nearer than Perth Amboy proper. L. S. Kasson, super | intendent of the Asphalt works, says: ‘‘The factories in this vicinity are now paying a large increase in taxes and as taxpayers they are entitled to better police protection than that which they now receive and believe they, and the people of Maurer, should, have it at once.” Mr. Kasson expressed no opinion as to the number or officers he thought necessary. V A. L. Walker, General ’•'anager the Amerioan Si? '*'H’ »'mn company, gave hir-« w-' ‘‘The City of Perth' -twiDoy should x provide better protection for the tax- " " payers ofi Manrer. We have over 1,000 men on our pay roll, who every pay day recenve large sums of money and some of these conld easily be robbed by a gang, tor their patn is over the same spot where the recent holdups occurred. I would favor a mounted policeman, an officer on foot would have too large a territory to cover. One on horse could look after every thing and prove very effective in run ning down law breakers. “We have our own police force,” Mr. Walker continued, “bnt they are paid to look after our interests, not the city's. ” John Pfeiffer Jr., superintendent of the Maurer interests, expresses the same opinion. He says: “The people of Maurer are paying their fair share of taxes, and are en titled to all the advantages which the taxpayers nearer the City Hall enjoy. A mounted policeman would be an excellent thing, but expensive. What is needed is a policeman. Let him be afoot or astride, I do not think, I ' know he is needed and the sooner he comes the more satisfied will be the residents of this this part of the city.” Mr. Pfeiffer also spoke of the light question. From Gadek’s to the bridge there is not a light. Complete dark ness on this road fosters any crime. On the street leading to the smelter are iucandtscent lights. The lights, wires and poles arc supplied by the Maurer Ct nipanv and the power by the snultei. About fonr arc lights be; ween Gadck's and the bridge would be a great improvement and they are needed. Last year an appropriation made was too small and the lights did not materialize. WEATHER. The forecast received at the local Si|ht i station is for fair. i '
