reported thul he hud started proceed
ings to collect the old assessments.
That It had been necessary for him
to expend some money in court fees
and also for starches, that although
this money will be returned by the
collection of the assessments when
the proceedings are finished, he
would like to have the sum of $50
appropriated so he will not have to go
down In his own clothes for it.
Resolution by Councilman Dewan:
Resolved, that the sum of $50 he ap
uroprlated for the use of the borough
attorney for cost of proceedings In
relation to delinquent assessments.
Resolution was adopted.
''Councilman Foreman: 1 would
like to ask our counsel what is being
done with the hole-in-the-wall.
Mr. Pearse: I Intended to make
the statement some time ago, but It
slipped my mind. When Vice-Chan
cellor Stevenson came hack from the
south, I think the first of February,
he scut a letter to the various attor
neys who had business before him
and set a day for each case, and I re
gret to say he put down the hole-in
the-wall case for the twentieth of
March. We hoped to have it some
time in February, but he said he
could not possibly arrange It before
that time, so the hole-in-the-wall will
come off on the twentieth of March.
I'nder Poor, Mr. Pearse reported:
The overseer of the poor, and myself
have been doing a little charitable
work, strange to say. There Is a fam
ily here in town who live on John
siret'i; ooui me uoara oi neaun ana
overseer of the poor have been some
what worked up over the condition of
the children of this family, not prop
erly clothed, no bed to sleep on, noth
ing to eat apparently, no fire in the i
house, no windows in the house, very J
distressing condition. I attempted to
arrange so that we might take cer
tain proceedings and turn the chil
dren over to the State Board of Chil
dren Guardians or some other insti
tution which has the welfare of the
children in ntind and try to thrust
the expense, of it on the county, hut
I found the only way it could be done
was to make a complaint against
those people for neglecting their chil
dren and commit them and then to
turn the children over to the charge
of the overseer of the poor. That
was done last week. He spoke to the
mayor about it and I believe the chil
dren are now at the poor house. We
have thirty days !:• which we car
leave them there before they must be
turned over to the State Board unless
we are able to place them Bomewhere
else in that time. I might say I am
in communication with the society
known as the New Jersey Home So
ciety, which has its headquarters in
Trenton and looks out for finding
homes for children all right bodily
but poor. We may be able to place
them with them, If not they will 1>p
taken charge of by the State Board
i find we cannot put the expense of
them on the county, as there is no
county almshouse in which they could
be committed and apparently in this
county each municipality must take
care of its own poor. That means if
they go to the State Board it will
necessitate the paying of their board
until some place is found for them.
I saw the superintendent, a very de
lightful lady, and told her we did not
care to have any more Abbott bills
coming in and she assured me she
would use every effort to get these
children placed without expense at
the very earliest moment. Even
though we did have to pay for them
