THE NEWS OE HOBOKEN.
The New Council Hold » Meeting—A Drowning Accident. The Board of Council held its first regular meeting in the City Hall last night. It was expected that the com bine would have Edward Stanton to swell its ranks, and a large audience was in the body of the ball to witness the proceedings. Another point oi great interest was the Mayor’s ap pointment for City Physician, and the friends of the rivals, Dr. Heifer and Dr. Simon, were present in large num bers. Councilmen Maloney and Brug geman were absent. The property holders along the line of the sewer along Grand street, be tween Second and Third streets, peti tioned that John Ludwig be ap pointed inspector in the place of H. J. Bruggeman. The communication was placed on file. Councilman Stan ton requested the clerk to produce the original petition, but the chair man referred him to the file, where it could be seen by him at any time. The clerk was ordered to submit the report of President Henry Hess, of the Board of Education, complaining that the appropriation for School No. 5 was insufficient, to the Tax Commis sioners for an increase in the ap propriation. A communication was received from Dr. Dixon, calling the at tention of the Board to the icLUb LIlUb lie cviiu aetcu tv attciiu the horses of the Fire Department for the sum of $50 for the past year, and seeking reappointment. A letter from the Mayor appointing Dr. S. A. Heifer City Physician for the term of three years was read. On the motion of Councilman Stanton it was ordered to lay over until after recess. Councilman Patrick Maloney re signed his position as the representa tive of the Fourth ward in the Board of Aldermen. It was accepted, Lon drigan only opposing it. When it came to the reading of the annual report of the Board of Educa tion, a voluminous document of forty pages, Councilman Londrigan insisted on having it read in full. He ex plained his action by saying that many people had asked him what be came of the $120,000 annually spent on the schools, and that he thought it was only proper for them to know. Councilman Stanton thought that the public could know all it wanted to if the report were printed, together with those of the Fire, Police and Water Departments. Londregan’s motion was lost, as he was the only one who voted for it. It was ordered that proposals for the building of the Ravine road sewer be advertised for. On the motion of Councilman Star.ton it was resolved that the services of the en gineer of the City Hall be dispensed with. Londrigan voted for the re tention of the engineer. The Council passed a resolution for bidding city officials to order or pur chase goods with an order from the committee of the department for which the things are required. During recess the Aldermen gathered in small groups, and were discussing the action they would take about the Mayor’s appointment of Dr. Heifer* for city physician. Opinion was divided, but Councilman Stanton, who was a doubtful feature in the arrangement, was won over. The air became calmer, and when the president’s gavel re _ called the members to their seats, f everybody looked knowing. Ordi nances to fix the salary of the Assistant , City Clerk, and the appointment of a second Assistant Clerk by title passed their first reading unanimously. The City Clerk was authorized to advertise the vacancy in the Board by the resignation of Maloney, and the following polling places were named:— First district, No. 14 Clinton street; Second district, No. 128 First street; Third district, corner of Adams and Newark street; Fourth district, No. 178 First street; Fifth district, corner of Monroe and First streets; Sixth dis trict, No. 108 First street. There was a big fight as to whether the Mayor’s communication appoint ing Dr. Heifer for City Physician Bhould lay over or be acted on at once. Londregan wanted the matter deali with right away, because most of the other Couneilmen were of. opinion that it might lay over for a week. When put to the vote it was a tie, but Councilman Timken altered liis vote and the matter will be brought up at the next meeting. A Child Abandoned. A little baby about ten days old was iounu in me nan way oi i\o. a xiuason street by George Tremann last night. It was beautifully dressed and evi dently belonged to rich parents, but there was no mark on the clothes by which it could be identified. It is certain that the child was deliberately abandoned, as it was lying in a corner, covered with a shawl. It is remark able that the child had not been stepped on, as in the corner where it was found it was pitch dark. The child was taken to the police station, but as Mrs. Chappell was sick and could not attend it, it was sent to the wife of Policeman Kaufmann. Jumped from the MoonachJc. As the Hoboken ferryboat Moonachie was leaving her slip at Christopher street this morning, a man dressed in a light gray suit rushed excitedly through the ladies’ cabin and jumped over the rail in front into the water. The boat was stopped and backed, but although a rowboat and a lantern were used, not a trace of him could be found. While in the ferry house the man’s actions were strange. He appeared to be drunk and was lying across two seats and moaning. 'There was noth ing by which he can be identified. Hoboken Briefs.

Foreman George Fink, of Americus Truck, No. 2, of West Hoboken, is in dignant at the way the other members of the Fire Department treated his company last Tuesday night. The cause of his wrath is very simple. After the result of the election for Chief had been declared, as usual, the boys started out with their machines to have a run through tiie town. The members of Americus thought they ought to be allowed the same privilege, and as Assistant Foreman Tournade did not object, off they went. They had hardly run two blocks when Foreman Fink met them and ordered them to take the truck back to the house. The boys felt rather crestfallen and obeyed him with bad grace. Then the foreman went home. The other firemen did not like the damper put on their own hilarity by Mr. | Fink’s action, and waited for a chance ! to get even. Hardly had the men j from Americus safely housed their ap I paratus and dispersed when the other laddies climbed in through the win dow, opened the door, and in a mo ment the truck was tearing down the street like lightning, with a yelling crowd of boys in pursuit. Some of tiie men of Americus recog nized the clang of the truck's gong and charged on the jokers. They captured their machine and were about to take it home, when the jokers manned the rope again and never stopped until they reached Foreman Fink’s house in Courtlandt street, where they left the truck stand ing. The cheering brought Mr. Fink out, and lie. with the aid of a few others, Slowly dragged their apparatus back to the house. Some of the company took it as a joke, but Foreman Fink threatens to have the matter before the Board of Fire Trustees and try to have the offenders expelled from the depart ment. _ The Deadlock Gets Serious. The disgust of Union Hill’s citizens at the deadlock in the Council is rapidly merging into indignation. The days are slipping by, and still there seems to be no probability of a compromise. The meetings are held in the morn ing, a time when Councilmen Merritt and Ross find it impossible to be pres ent. This is also a source of com plaint. The police will soon have to live on thin air, as their salaries can not be paid until the Council orga nizes. The business of the town is stagnat ing. Persons with claims against the town are clamoring for their money, but to no purpose. The followers of Ruh and Merritt are staunch in their support of their candidate and will fight to the bitter end. A Golden Haired Waif. There is a bright little waif at the Town Hall, West Hoboken. The lit tle fellow is about three years of age, and has golden hair. He was found straying about the town, crying for his “Mamma.” This is the only word that he will say in answer to all questions. Neither his name nor his residence could be found out from him, and un less his friends claim him within the week, the little stranger will have to go to the Almshouse. North Hudson Notes.
