J/0 7iOKE?PS POTjICE captxtred olj> ΏΑ VII) ZAMBEBT YESTEltOA F. He Had Been Passing Counterfeit Dollars That Were Almost Indistinguishable from Genuine Coin» — Notes of All Kinds. David Lambert, sixty-one years old, .wlio said that he was a boatman, was arrested yesterday afternoon for pars ing spurious coin. For several days complaints have been made that an old man was passing' coun terfeit silver dollars, and De tective Gallagher ' was deputed to look After him. He visited several stores along Washington street yester day afternoon. He called for a drink at Meyer Brothers' saloon and tendered in payment a counterfeit silver dollar. Mr. Meyer refused to accept it, and Lambert gave him a dime. His ac tions were so suspicious that Mr. Meyer telephoned to the police station as soon as the man left the store. Detective Stanton was sent out. and met Lambert coming out of another store, where he had just received change for one of his spurious coins. Ho was arrested and taken to the po lice station, where be was searched. Several counterfeit coins were found in various places on his person, and a quantity of genuine coins. His rooms, in the tenement house at No. 23 Gar den street, were searched, and in an inside pocket in an overcoat hanging behind t lie door twenty-one counter feit dollar pieces were found. Lambert lias been following his present calling of passing spurious teoui ior souw unie, aim Jia» ut-un ui rested for it before. There was not sufficient evidence, however, to con vict him. When the town got too hot for him it was Lambert's custom to go to sea for some months, or to go off on a canal boat. The coins are nearly perfect and very hard to detect, some of them hating changed hands several times before they were detected. Lambert has made the acquaintance of Inspector Byrnes, who lias a photograph of him in the rogues' gallery. Recorder McDonough committed S Lambert to the County Jail in default of bail. ——— Garbage I)iecl of Pneumonia. The inquest on the death of Henry Garbade was held last night in Coyle's Hall. Evidence as to his mother's assault upon him with a flat iron was adduced, but nothing important was unearthed. The jury returned a ver dict in accordance with Dr. Converse's autopsy, that the man died from pneu monia, and that his death was ac celerated by heavy drinking. Hobokeu Notes.

At the meeting of the County Board of Health yesterday President Gordon called the attention of his colleagues to the condition of the schools in this county, and a thorough and general inspection will be made. Especial attention will be given to ventilation, the number of windows, light and its direction, number of pupils and num ber of cubic feet of ail· per capita, the fire protection, method of egress, and whether the school lias a fire drill. The High School will be the first to be thus inspected, andlir. Saltonstali has been directed by the Board to do it. The other schools will probably be visited in their numerical order, be ginning with No. 1.

He informed the members that he ■wanted a favor. He did not want much, hut what he wanted he would like to have. He simply desired ac cess to the death register to enable him to call on the afflicted and offer his services—for so much—to furnish a memorial. Mr. Bettlheim said that the particular stylo of a memorial >vould remain entirely with those who oidered it, which the Board thought was very considerate of him. lie could furnish flowers or engrossed resolutions, or anything almost that might be wanted, but he did not know where to find those who wanted these tokens, unless he could And out who had departed this life, and to do that he wanted the aid of the death regis ΗΕ'ΙΛ WAIT A MONTH. When he had finished his melancholy talk. Dr. Gordon said:— "This is worse than cruel. You go to the houses of the afflicted and harrow their feelings as soon as a death takes place." "Oh, no I don't," interjected Bettl heim, "1 almost always wait a month." "Weil, you will wait many months before you can do this kind of work here?" concluded President Gordon, and the two other members agreed. The Blind Evangelist. Λ blind evangelist was the attrac tion at the Scotch Presbyterian Church, and about one hundred and fifty people gathered in the basement I to heal* and see hi in. No one seemed able to toll why the reverend gentle ! man had been consigned to the base ment instead of the church, but he was, and it is there I found him. His name is Houston, and lie is a clergyman. A member of the church told me that Mr. Houston was on trial, and that if his style and method of saving sinners suited he would proba bly be engaged to preach there for a couple of weeks and hold revivals nightly. Mr. Houston is a man of about thirty-five years, full faced, wears a "cute" little mustache, a white tie, black eye glasses and has an appear ance of prosperity about liitn. He is a good vocalist and last night he sang several solos with considerable feeling and expression. The evangelist did not preach a sermon but talked to the congregation. His subject was money, and he began by asking. "Wherefore do you spend your money?" He de clared that it was not plentiful in this city—that people can not pick it up I from the pavements, but they can find enough to permit them to go to the theatre whenever they want to. The evangelist believed that it was more profitable to invest money in bread than in theatres. It will be decided today or tomorrow whether the Rev. Mr. Houston will hold a revival in the church. Hia work last night seemed to please. He recently completed three months' work in the Union Tabernacle, New York. r;s correct schedule. The Date-son "Wliïcli Atlantic Association Clubs Will Play.

( 'hiklren cannot be healthy without it. , Προ THE COURT OF OYER Attt) TÉRMÎNER X snd General Jail Delivery, December Terra, A. i D. 18S0: TbeOrand Jury respectfully present, that from In vestigation they flad that the business of Hurtson County intrusted to the Board of Chosen I'Yeeftold ! ers, is conducted by said Board in an unbusinesslike, irregular and unsystematic manner, whereby a Wide avenue to corruption and fraud 1 s constantly open. Tuey And that no pretense is made to keep an or derly and systematic reora of the order, purchase and delivery of supplies to the County Institutions. Th< y are baffled in their investigations by the slack methods of doing business by said Board. Obstacles in the path of In .obligation, placed thoro designedly 01· through ignorance, require more time for removal than the urtind Jury can bestow, and tne pro.ractea labor of experis would be required to fully reveal the evils which have been wroufrftt, and are now covered by the bungling, it not corrupt, management of said Board. They are happy to report that the Penitentiary is most creditably.manag jd, and the Warden maintains a perfect system of books, covering the order and receipt ot supplies for that institution. Outside ol' that institution great confusion exists in tbe management of the affairs of the errant v. wooub are suppuea upon requisitions made bv com mitteemen ol the Board of Chosen Freeholders seem ingly without cheek or hindrance. Instead of these Poors being sont to the storekeeper to be drawn thereon uuon requisition by the heads of other insti tutions, they are in many cases sent directly to thosj institutions, by this means the storekeeper is ignored and is unable to Keep an account-of the sup plies furnished. Instead of maintaining a set of books to show what goods are furnished to each or the institutions, he has on iv requests and receipts from these Institutions. Among bills and Touchers coming to the attention of the Urand Jury, they And that many contain excessive and unfan* charges tor supplies and labor, showing a prevalence of great extravagance on the part οt the Board of Chosen Froehodeis. In proot of this the following items are mentioned: A oill for two barrels of turpentine, for which near ly throe times its value was paid. Three barrels ot asphalt, which were not worth $50, were charged for in the sum of $118 92, and this bill was passed. For twelve boxes of lemons, $102 was paid. For lour crates of btrrits 145 was paid. For one black diamond tablet for the Hall of Rec ords. $378 was paid, when tne same was not worth more than $lou. For ice lurnlshed to the Court House and Jail for the months of July and August, 1838, ΙΰΟ,ΟΟΟ pounds were paid for. For ice furnished to the Court House and Jail for the month of September, 1888, 48,000 pounds were paid for. For ice furished to the County Institutions, from July 17lh to August 18th. 143 tons were paid for. A bill for $1,137, for printing County Road ballots tor the last election was sent to the Board of Chosen Freeholders by the Argus Printing Company, when, as a tact, the books of the said printing company show that the charge therefor was $309. This Dili, however, has not been paid. Thé drand Jury flhrt, upon investigation, thai mauy positions to which salaries are attached, arc Sinecures and of no possible benefit to the taxpayers They mention one as a sample. There is an orticei known as a vinegar inspector who draws a salary ot $55 per month, but has never done any work to earn any part of such salary, if there ever was any wort for him to do. The acc or the Legislature establish Ing suchriMttoe should be repealed. The Grand Jury finds the vouchers of many claim.·' irregular, lacking verification entirely, or being ltn· properiy verified; the c aimant, In some instances, verifying his oWn claim before himself as an oait taking officer. They also find itemized bills boarmti no date but that contained in the jurat of the vetifi. cation. They find that largo bills ot special articles like fish, covering a period of supply or three or mort months prior to December 1. 1888, are paid, togeihei wi&h a mass of other claims, after the commence ment of the new fiscal year, carrying with them the evidejacooLobligations Incurred in excess of the ap. firopriations for tue fiscal year of 1888. They fine hat on Decern ber 0th, 1888, which was the sixth daj of the present fiscal year, bills aggregating a von largo amount, manifestly contracted in the lasi fiscal year, rut in noarly all the cases without date were paid by the Board of Chosen freeholders. (Th< amouno is said to be $70,000.) Verified duplicate bills ot paid claims have bcei passed through a loose routine of certification bi committeemen or clerk, and payment oy the Boarc Is detected by tne exercise ot the unaided memorv ο tiio storekeeper. cnecks and guards are entirely wanting to prevent the pavment oi such accideniu or designed duplicate claims. The Ο rand Jury find that the Board ot Cho.ser Freeholders have neglected to finish the annex tc the Penitetiliary, and in consequence thereof th< prison is greatiy overcrowded, as many as throt prisoners being confined in a small coil, necessitat· lrir ac least ono sleeping on the floor. The (iraid Jury resnectiully submit that more simple, safe, etftjioni ο·ηα business-like method* should be at once adopted. The requisition system as It now exists, by which tile individual members oi the Board can purchase unrestricted kinds and quantities of supplies for the several institutions bnould be immediately stopped. AH supplies should be furnished by contract, and should be delivered to the storekeeper, and his re· ceipt therefor should bo the contractor's vouchor foi the delivery thereof. Then the heads of the different institutions should make requisition tor suppliée u pou toe storekeeper, and an account should br opened and kept between the storekeeper and eaoli or the heads of the institutions. In cases of emer gency, where it is impossible tor the goods needed tc be furnished by the contractor, requisitions should bt made in writing by the nead of the institution ueod ing the same upon the storekeeper, who should refer the same to the appropriate committee, to be ob tained and filled by them. These goods, on beinu bought., should be sent to thë storekeeper, who should enter the receipt thereof in a book to be provided for that purpose. And the Grand Jury'i especLfally offers to the Court the following suggestions of a plan lor administering th? affairs or our County Institutions: I. Contracts for supplies of all kinds should be awarded for a fear, instead of six months. Tne ob jection to the present aomi-annual letting of con tracts is that during the period between the expira tion of the old contracts and the awarding oi thy new. goods are purchased by requisition at the most extravagant prices. II. At least a month before the bids for contracta are to be received, a complets inventory ot ail sup plies and personal property or every kiud belonging to the County at Snake Hlil should be made out, and a printed copy thereof shouid bo exposed tor inspec tion m tne offico of the Board. III. The specifications, which are now to a greai extent false and m.sleadinsr,should bamadeto truly show as near as may be, the kinds and qualities ot supplies that might be required to be furnished on contract, so that each b:uder may know just what ne will b3 called upon to supply. IV. Samples of ail gjods should also be exhibited, so that the true quality and description thereof may be lcnuwn to bh tlers. V. The Board should require every bidder to file with his bid a sufficient bond, au.y certified b fore the Clerk of th.* Board, for the faithful performance oi.' such contractas may be awarded to him. VI. The atorekeeuer shouli Keep an account with the head of each institution, charging against· sucn institution at tne cutset all tne personal property oi the county, including sunplies shown by the afore said inventory to be in the possession or under the control or such institution, fciaca head of an institu tion should on his part keep a similar account with tho gtoreiceoper. VII. The Board, bv and with tho advice oi the Countv Physician, shouid then establish a system oi dany ratlSne for the inmates and officers of th i in stitutions. No departure saonld be made from the syst'-m of rations thus establlshe :, except on the written order of the County Physician, in cases oi η ι/ .L-ti'KU >in/l f.Wrt Hlrn Τ r H00S&SCHD1Z * Furniture & Carpet ECOTTSS, 71 Newark Ave., Jersey City, k, 167 Washington Street, k k HOUOKKN.

Tn c storo.ceoi. er Should charge the same against tbo institution recemng tnetn, una the iiuad of each institution in his own book snouid debit hlmseif With these suppliea. All supplies, not food, that neeu to bo renewed, such as elotalng, furniture, implements and the like, should ba churned in the same manner, ana the o;d articles a.iouid be turned into the storekeeper and sold to the best advautagu or the county. IX. There should bs a monthly examination of tho accounts of the storekeeper and heads or tue depart ments, by which tne Board couid ascertain the qual ity and value of supplies received by the storekeeper from each contractor, and the quality and value of tne supplies transmitted by tne storekeeper of each institution. By reierence to the number οinmates for the month at tne different institutions, it could then be louild Whether or not the daily per capita al lowance of food supplies had been exceeded, and la case of an excess the Warden or head of an mstitu tioa responsible tor It should bo held accountable. The Grand Jury respectfully ask the Court to di rect the publication of the forogoing presentment m such manner as may be beat. Ο. H. O'Neill, Foreman.
