The Board of Health lie^d a regu
lar monthly meeting In the council

first business was the paying of bills.
The only bill presented was for f 1.20
which was presented by Health In
spector Dr. G. VV. Flthiun, for the re
moval of some garbage on one of the
streets of the city which the regular
garbage cohector had neglected to
take away for several days. The
health Inspector had secured A. F.
Monos’ workmen to cart the debris
away. This bill aroused consider
able discussion. 1L was finally order
ed paid to Mr. Munoz and then re
charged to Graham & McKeon,
through the council.The inspector told
of several other cases where garbage
had been left for many days without
being collected and said that he could
hire drivers every day to cart away
old garbage, but he could only attend
to the most urgent, cases.
The Inspector, in Ills report, stated
that during February the following
cases of contagious diseases had come
hafni’n It i m • 9 9 nuuoe of aprirlut fovoi*
I! of diphtheria and 3 of measles.
Twenty-nine nuisances had been re
ported during the month, several of
which were abated.
The committee of which Commis
sioner Quick was chairman, appoint
ed at the last meeting of the board to
wait on the Board of Education in
regard to taking over the school in
spectorship, and to let bis work come
under the Jurisdiction of the school
board instead of the health board,
made a report last night to the ef
fect that they had conferred with the
Board of Education and that board
consented Following next summer's
vacation, school inspector Dr. M. S.
Meiuzer will be transferred to the
jurisdiction of the Board of Edttca-1
lion and that board will pay and di-J
rect him ns they see fit.
To Abate Common .Nuisances.
During the meeting inspector Fith-1
ian was asked what nuisances he \
mostly had to contend with. He said
that drain pipes, closets, garbage and
cow stables chiefly bother him. Pres
ident Main said that during the com
ing spring something will be done
with the many cow and horse stables
in and about the city which are in a
dirty, leaky and filthy condition. The
board intends to rid the city streets
from the overflow from many such
buildings. President Main also told
of the condition of several bakery
shops in the city, especially their
yards.
A communication was received
from D. A. Shirley in the form of an
application for the position of uni
rormen neann inspector in uns cuy.
The communication was received
and ordered placed on file. An invi

Found Fire House Doors Open.
When one of the members of Lin
coln Engine Company went to the
fire house on State street this morn
ing. he found the front doors open
and the interior of the place partially
covered with snow. How the doors
wrere opened is a mystery, as the
member sa.VH that w'hen he left the
building at 11 o’clock last night, they
were tightly closed, it is possible
that the spring on the doors may have
slipped and in this way caused them
to open.

JUDGE HELPS
THE DEFENSE
Assists Delmas in Protecting His
Witness From Unfair Treat
ment in Thaw Trial, ^
JURY MUST DECIDE SANITY.
Judge Fitzgerald Scores the Prosecu
tor in Court When the Latter Re
fused to Quote Authority in a
Statement—Jerome Came Near
Contempt—Judge Refused to Argue
the Matter—Hull Hay In the Trial.
NEW YORK, March So strenu
ous was District Attorney Jerome at
me trial of Harry Thaw that he arous
ed the Indignation of Justice Fltzger
aid • and received from him several
stinging rebukes.
The prosecutor was bent on trapping
Dr. Charles K. Wagner, alienist for
Thaw, Into an admission Umt the pris
oner is insane now or was insane at
the time lie shot -Stanford White, lie
accused the witness, who did not an
swer finest ions to suit him, of jduck
ing for the defense." This called out
the lirst show of wrath on the part of
the judge, who ordered the remark
stricken from the record.
Dr. Wagner was proceeding ut some
length to state the position of the de
fense when .Mr. Jerome interrupted
with the remark that the argument did
uot call "for a stump speech.” Mr.
Delmas protested against this ••of
fensive language by the learned dis
trict attorney.” Justice Fitzgerald in
terposed in the disi-ussiou, mid Mr.
Del unis whs soon lost to view because
of the turn affairs took.
During the course of his argument
District Attorney Jerome placed him
self on record by saying that the legal
assumption before the court Is that '■
Harry K. Thaw Is insane.' He declin
ed tlie alienists for the defense have
shown Thaw to have been insane us i
late as Kept. 22 Inst, and in the all
sauce of proof to Ihe contrary the as- j
sumption is that lie reinalus Insane.
Justice Fitzgerald declared that the |
present jury only has to do with the i
question of Thaw’s sanity or insanity :
on tile night that he shot mid killed I
Stanford White.
The witness was asked regarding
Thaw’s will and codicil and said lie
would not characterize the insanity
they indicated as paranoia. He admit
ted, however, that the delusions might
be somewhat paranoic in type.
A little later the district attorney fell
into n pit that he had dug himself and
bAore he was out of It had aroused a
storm in Justice Fitzgerald that burst
forth In a fashion that is seldom seen
in a courtroom.
“I want*to show,” declared Jerome,
"that the evasions and quibbllngs of
this witness constitute an extraordi
nary proceeding.”
Dolmas made furious objections. In
the midst of the heated argument Je
rome iuude this remarkable statement:
“The legal presumption is that lie
was insane after the date of the flint
three visits, and the legal presumption
is that lie is now insane’’—
“Do you mean that there is a legal
presumption that he is now insaneV”
■iel’O/1 (ii«itii>A Ii'iivimuiilil ill ■> ■ ii i i li.
meat.
“I said”— begau Jerome. Then Ue
halted again.
"Do you admit that this defendant
was insane at the time of file shoot
ing';" said Dolmas, Jumping up in de
light.
"1 neither admit nor deny anything,”
said Jerome. "1 am trying to get the
truth from your export. That's all,”
“Do you mean to say that this jury
has been sworn to do anything hut do
eide on this defendant's vanity on any
date except the dale of the killing of
Stanford White?" asked the judge.
Jeroute started apparently (<> argue
the point further. A red liush mounted
into the justice’s cheeks, lie invited
Jerome to submit any authority tend
ing to confirm him in the attitude lie
had taken.
“I shall not submit any authorities
on a point so elemental that every ,
court is assumed to know them.” lie !
said. “I shall not submit authorities I
on a point which it must he assumed j
are recognized judicially everywhere."
Then, realizing how for he had gone,
the district attorney hastily added:
“I have too much respect for this j
court not to assume that your honor Is |
familiar with the authorities.”
In a voice shaking ami unsteady with j
suppressed feeling Justice Fitzgerald i
said:
“The court must be intonat'd of the j
law before it can rule on a disputed
point. If the district attorney does not i
produce any authorities l will assume
it is because he knows of no such au
thority and cauuot produce them. Arc !
you through with your remarks?”

Wagner’s’cross examination unfinished

this morning that tile contents of the !
place are estimated to be worth
about $300, which will just about
cover the amount of the claims, pro-1
viiMng that sum can be secured at a j
forced sale. According to Sergeant
at-Arms Shirley’s views of the ease
it is possible that the goods In the
office may he covered by a chattel

Deutsch has left a number of small
creditors, who will suffer by his sud
den departure.
Deutsch also has a small deposit in
the First National Bank and the

May Get Deutsch in Germany.
It is almost certain that Deutsch,
who Is said to have absconded with
the savings of the depositors of his
bank, sailed for Hamburg, Germany,
on the Hamburg-Amerlcau line
steamer last Wednesday, but as yet
no trace of the alleged absconder has |
been obtained. It was learned a fe,w
days ago that the Investigation Bu- ;
reau at Washington has been notified i
of the case and that he may be ar-!
rested when the steamer arrives In
Hamburg. Prosecutor BerdJne has |
been notified in regard to Deutsch's

will be brought back to this country
rests with him.

- :1
TRENTON, Mar. G:—The demo
crats of the House of Assembly, as
sisted by an active lobby composed
of brewery agents, spent the greater
part of yesterday trying to muster
sufficient votes to pass the Blohm bill,
which, In effect, would repeal the
Bishop’s act of last winter and permit
the sale of liquor on Sunday when
sanctioned by a municipality. The
house was put under call at the af
ternoon session nnd the bill passed to
a second reading after the republic
ans had exhausted every effort to
kill It by amendment.
After the wrangle it was decided to \
hold a night session, the intention be
uift IU IUH.O me Util IU iiuill
at once. During the recess, the house
being still under can, a report be
came current in the corridor that the
lobby was offering $1,000 each for
votes for the bill. It had the effect
of causing the wearisome session of
tiie bouse to adjourn for a week with
out bringing up. the bill on third
reading.
As near as can be learned there are
three or four democrats who intend
to vote against the Blohm bill and
about as many republicans who are
inclined to favor it. . With the ex
ception of these prospective defec
tions tiie vote is likely to bo on party,
lines with the result, in doubt.
House Against Voting Machines.
Spirited debates marked the con
sideration of Assemblyman Hol
combe's bill to abolish voting ma
chines at elections when that measure
came up or a final reading In the
house yesterday afternoon. In the
discussion, the house took sides, the
democrats arguing that the machines
liad been proven unsatisfactory .while
the republicans contended that the
machines provided the best method
it' voting yet devised. When the vote
vas taken, however, several of tfce
■(‘publicans voted with the democrats
mil the bill passed by a vote of thir
v-eight to twenty.
State Board of Arhitmtion.
The democrats in the assembly
bole a march on the republican sen
■ last night by passing Assembly
ii Klenert’s hill to abolish the state
lard of arbitration. The only other
bill to pass the house last night was
No. Hitt, providing for the opening of
Bamford place, Newark.
House 19, incorporating the bor
ough of South Plainfield, was recom
mitted and house 274, an employers’1
liability act, was withdrawn, as wa,s
house 223, amending the act to regu
