Two Justices of the Peace . Accused of Extortion and Bribery. THROWN OUT OF POLICE HEADQUARTERS. Overcharging the Complain ant and Accepting Straw. Bail Are Among the Charges. There is every probability that with in the next forty-eight horn’s Justice of the Peace Thomas H. Ward, of Bayonne, will be arrested by the po lice of that city on a charge of extor tion and bribery. There is also a possibility that Justice of the Peace Marcus Strieker, of Constable Hook, will be gathered in as an (accessory to the fact. For some months past it has been strongly suspected, and even openly hinted by alleged victims, that the methods pursued by the pair of Dog berry's would not bear close scrutiny. A rl!nA/-.irAMT nn In tit n n no font was accidentally made yesterday through a petty case which came up in the Bayonne Police Court. Samuel Reisch, an undersized Hun garian, of Constable Hook, was as saulted last Monday by Michael Romar, a stalwart fellow countryman. He complained to Justice Strieker, who advised him to get a war rant for Romar’s arrest from Justice (Ward. Reisch did so, and he alleges that he paid Justice Ward *2 for the warrant. Of the amount, he says, $1 was given to Constable Van Woert, who arrested Romar. TAKING STRAW BAIL. 1 then the prisoner was taken before Justice Ward on Monday night, Jus tice Strieker appeared with a Hun garian, named Michael Welleke. Jus tice Ward released Romar to appear 'or examination; accepting, as Iie alleges on Justice Strieker's protestations, Welleke as Romar's surety. Wednesday night the party again met in Justice Ward’s office. Romar asserts that he gave Welleke $9, and Welleke gave #4 to Justice Strieker and Sj>5 to Justice Ward. He understood that the con sideration was paid so that he would not be sent to jail. This statement is corroborated by Welleke. Thursday morning Reisch secured from Justice of the Peace Sidney L. Carragan, who was acting as Re corder, another warrant for Romar's arrest. He said nothing of the pre vious warrant, and Patrolman Gor man arrested Romar. During the af ternoon Justice Ward learned that Romar was a prisoner at Police Head quarters. He repaired thither and had "a" growl with Patrolman -Mc Carthy. Finally lie became so excited and dictatorial that Sergeant Van 11 Horn grabbed him by the coat collar I j and the slack of his trousers and ran / ; him out into the street. He made a futile, frantic attempt at resistance. HOW IT GAME TO LIGHT. Yesterday Recorder Besher gave Romar a hearing, and the facts as re lated above were developed. Recorder Besher and Chief of Police AlaNeill were indignant, and they interrogated Justice Ward as to the truth of the matter. His flabby face turned several shades of green and purple, and he painfully stammered a general denial. During the day the police secured a number of witnesses to the money transaction, and several sworn statements, embodying the facts, were made. The case against Romar was adjourned uutil this morn ing when he was discharged Re corder Besher told both Reisch and Romar that if they did not get their money back there would be music. Justice Ward can also be accused of having accepted straw bail, as Welleke is not a Freeholder. BAYONNE BUZZINGS. A Medley of Personal, Social and Church Gossip. Under the direction of Miss Maggie B.

The Exponent of Single Tax Ideas Sailed For Europe Today, Henry George sailed for Europe at 6 o’clock this morning on board the iteamer Ems, of the Bremen line. At about 10 o’clock last night a coach, containing Mrs George, her two daughters, and Miss Crawford, a friend of the family, drove down on the pier and the passengers were aboard the ships in a moment. Fifteen minutes later another coach ap peared. In it were Henry George and a friend. Mr. George, gripsack in hand, hastened up the gangplank and made his way to his stateroom, where the ladies, surrounded by flowers, awaited him. While chatting pleasantly music from a brass band was heard on deck. He was greeted with cheers by several delegations from the Hudson County Tux Teague and 150 members of the Manhattan Single rax uiuu. After more cheers and more music the serenaders came on board the steamer and each man shook hands with Mr. George. This done he was taken to the pier, where he was received with the most enthusiastic cheering, and the band played with a vigoi that astonished even the leader. Mr. William McCabe, president of the Manhattan Club, in a short and by no means ineloquent address, now bade fare well to Mr. George. That gentleman re sponded with feeling in a brief speech. He congratulated the club ou the good work it is doing, and declared that the single tax theory would prove in due time to be not alone a theory. He said that he and liis family intended to remain in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales during his four months’ absence. He was not going abroad for pleasure, he said, but to work. He said he would not make a long- speech in saying good by, for he expects to do so much talking lie fore he gets home again that he wanted to save his voice and strength. He closed his speech by saying that he was glad that he could tell their co-laborers abroad that work for the cause Is progressing grandly in this land. The speech closed, and there was more music, more cheers, and Mr. George dis appeared down the companionway and the visitors went home. THE COMING WATER MEETING. The Committee of One Hundred Urge a Large Attendance. The members of the Committee of One Hundred met in Room 3, of the Booraem building, last evening, and after a stormy session adjourned, out of respect to the memory of the late Henry A. Booraem, who labored with the committee at its previous session. Ex-Mayor Clark presided. In reference to the Heppenheimer Water bill, ex-As semblyman Shannon, of the committee’s legislative committee, stated that owing to the non-appearance of that body, which was to have conferred with the Senate committee on Tuesday last, the conference was postponed until Tuesday next. He advised that a lagge representation be present next Tuesday, and said that while it was well enough to be represented by counsel, the appearance of interested citizens in numbers was more likely tc produce the desired impression. There were 5,000 people in Jersey City who were elirectly interested in the passage of the bill. He saw no reason why they should not be represented at Tuesday’s confer ence by fifty or a hundred citizens at least. The following resolutions of respect to the memory of Henry A. Booraem were drafted by a committee consisting ol Messrs. Fleming, Van Ripen and Oly phant, and adopted unanimously: Resolved, That by the death of Henry A Booraem this community has lost a high-mindee j citizen, whose probity and honor in all his deal ings made him a bright example of which is best in a good man, ana whose wise counsel will be sadly missed in the conduct of public affairs. Tc his family for the sudden and unexpected loss they have sustained, and in which we all share, we tender our heartfelt sympathy. Resolved, That these resolutions be entered or the minutes and a copy sent to the family of oui deceased friend. The committee adjourned till next Fri day evening. ir-ts j i t ot jtjt . Charging that an Insurance Company Made Unlawful Conditions for a Loan. An alleged clever attempt of a promt nent life insurance company of New Yori to evade the New Jersey ursury laws was exposed in the Court of Chancery this morning before Advisorary Mastei Stephens of Newark. Joseph M. Lane, of this city, applied tc the Washington Life Insurance Com pany, of New York, in May, 1882, for a loan of $8,000 on property in Jersey City. He eluims that before the company would make the loan they demanded 84(X from him, and compelled him to take out a policy on the life of his son, Joseph M. Lane, Jr., upou which he paid 8080.20. The son objected to having his lift insured, but sis the company would not loan the money unless a policy xvas taken out, ho finally consented in order, as he expressed it, to enable his father to obtain tiie money. A short time ago the company filed a bill to foreclose the mortgage, and Mr. Hone, through his counsel, S.li. Ransom filed an answer, in which he set out the facts as related above, and claimed that the company, in requiring him to take out a policy before they would make the loan, violated the statute against usury. Testimony iu support of the answei was taken this morning. The company was represented by Charles II. Corbin. FELL TWENTY FEET. A Carpenter on Erie Street Breaks Hit Neck.
