Trenton, Deo. 10—According to the
eport of the Secretary of State’s office
or the month of November, the filing
ees of new corporations reached ouly
16,405.as against 598,401 for the month

This is a decrease of nearly $92,000,

Corporation Clerk Jonh Brooke, by a
general depression in business.
The number of now concerns ohart

The enormous business that New
Jersey has done chartering large cor

to this possiblo source of revenue, and
by imitating New Jersey laws, the

ol the local electrical workers that
there was no settlement made direct
with the bricklayers, allowing them
to do the drilling of holes in brick
walls, but the electrical workers claim
this right, having won the sauio re

this case at tho Clieeseborough Vase
line works decided by sanction of onr

HAVANA, Ilec. 10.—The cabinet at

The government thus complies with all

ception of that relating to an American
school. It is believed, however, that
tlie school already established by tlie
Americans on the island will lie given

these concessions will dispose of much
of tlie opposition at Washington to tlie
ratification of tlie reciprocity treaty.
