Charles E. Miller, of 143 Liberty
street, New York, and William Ston
aker, section foreman of the rail
road company at Perth Amboy, in
dict! d for manslaughter in connec
tion with the grade crossing acci
dent of June la. pleaded not guilty
to the Indictments before Judge
Peter F. Daly in the county court
'this morning.
Andrew Thomas, gate-tender at
the Market street crossing where the
nine firemen were killed and others
Injured, the third defendant, was
represented by an attorney, bamuei
SchleLner, ol New Brunswick, who
produced a certificate from Dr. G.
#W. Tyrell ot Perth Amboy, which
Btated that the man's leg was still
in a cast, and that it would not be
removed before next Friday. Thomas
was injured the night the fire truck
collided with the express train.
Stonaker personally entered a
plea of not guilty, the court consent
ing that he might retract that plea
»fter his lawyer had looked over the
Indictment. He was released in
the custody uf the railroad com
pany's lawyer, no bail being taken.
Miller informed the court that the
»ectiOn foreman had been employed
by the railroad company for a great
while, and that the company would
be responsible for his appearance
when wanted.
Miller made a formal application
to the court for an order directing
the prosecutor to give a bill of par
ticulars under the three Indictments,
setting forth that the three defend
ants would not be able to defend
their oases unless they had this bill.
The attorney stated the section fore
man had nothing to do with operat
ing the train, nor did the tlagman.
and that they had no evidence
on what grounds the indictments
were based on. The railroad attor
ney cited legal cases in other states
where higher courts upheld that a
bill of particulars was necessary be
fore indicted persons can be called
* on for a defense.
Judge Daly in reply to the request
of the attorney for the railroad com
pany, stated that the practice in
Middlesex county is of an informal
nature. The court stated application
is made to the prosecutor by the de
fendant’s attorney, and the state and
opposing attorneys get together and
prepare the bill of particulars. The
court further stated that if the at
tomeys are unable to reach an agree
ment, an application is made for the
v court’s decision.

will be adopted and other busines
of importance taken up.
The statement of President Dorset
of the Original Democratic Club, fol
"On account of many inquiries re.
garding the policies of the Origins
Perth Amboy Democratic Club,
have decided to call a meeting of th<
club some night next week: The clul

"An endeavor will be made at thi
meeting to organize Democrat!
Ward Clubs to carry on the cam

From the fact that the two or

general opinion seems to be that tie
two meetings of next-week, will giv.
the voters an opportunity to decid
which leadership they desire to fol
low, whether that of the o!(l club o
the new.
President John Kelly of the ncv
club, has called a meeting of thi

that responses will be received to

srs can be announced by tomorrow
President Kelly has almost com
pleted the appointment of the mer
to draft the by-laws and constitu

the last meeting that the presiden
should name two men from eacl
ward to drw up the by-laws. The
men have all been named with the
exception of two or three and th<
president is waiting word from th«
ward leaders before completing th<
The by-laws committee will mee

those on the committee to arrang
for permanent headquarters.
Among the plans to be discusset
at Monday night’s meeUpg will b
that of a smoker and clambake V

From present indications the clu
expects a busy month, the idea bein,
to work every day up to electioi
and then start in again and worl
for the entire year.
Other business to be taken up a
the meeting will be the formatio
of a woman’s club or woman’s auxil
iary in accordance with suggestion
made at the last meeting.
It has been impossible to obtai
larger quarters for the club befor
the meeting on Monday night, bu
President Kelly expects to hav
larger quarters secured before th
holding of future meetings. Th
organization is receiving assurane
from every part of the city that th
early start was the best thing tin
could be hoped for by those wh
have the best interest of the part
at heart.

Says it Would be Folly to Re- !
duce Revenues Without ,
Reducing Expenditures
Would Ease Drain on Treas
ury in This Regard--Mon
dell Opposes New Taxes
[By The Associated Press.]
WASHINGTON, A,ug. 5—To real
ize their expressed hope of reducing
the nation’s tax bill by half a bil
lion dollars, Republican leaders of
the House of Representatives appear
on the basis of treasury estimating
to be faced with the task of cutting
j uii ivi a ui u uiniuu uuiiui o
from estimated government expen
ditures for this fiscal year, or else a
huge federal deficit next July 1.
Secretary Mellon In a statement
to the committee dealing with tux
revision, warned that even if more
than $250,000,000 should be lopped
off the estimate expenditure of $4,- >
550.000. 000, the tax yields could not
safely be committed to below $3,
570.000. 000, the estimate returns un
der existing law. Coupled with
this warning is the declaration that
it would he ‘‘folly" to reduce reve
nues without assurance of substan
tial additional reductions in expen
, ditures. Mr. Mellon added that in
seeking to arrive at an estimate of
the cash outgo for the year the
treasury could not take into account
paper savings or hope for reduc
tions in expenditures which cannot
be expected to materialize.
In a statement today Represen
tative Mondell, Wyoming,, Republi
can leader declares In bis judgment
it is entirely practical to reduce
the total tax levy by $500,000,000
and still take care of the needs of
the government.
“I realize that if all the bureaus
departments and agencies of the
government expended the sums they
have heretofore anticipated spend
ing, and in addition to that we were
called upon in a variety of ways to
make large expenditures in actual
reduction of the sum total of public
debt .over and above the sinking
fund expenditures, we could not re
duce revenues, but neither of these
things should happen."
One of tlie big tasks before the
Ways and Means Committee is deter
mining where cuts in expenditures
can be made safely and the amounts.
Some Republicans of the committee
have said that with the $500,000 000
railroad financing plan proposed in
pending legislation, it would be pos
sible to materially cut down the
$54 5,205,000 estimate made for pay
ment to the railroads. At the trea
sury it is explained this estimate is
independent of the financing propos
ed to he done by the finance cor
poration and represents payment on
account of the transportation act and
federal control. The outgo estimate
