THEY WILL NOT BOOM.1
Oklahoma’s Experience Not to Be Repeated at the State House. GLEANED FROM A TAX LIST. Curious Facts About Corporations Which Claim New Jersey as Their Home. [Spertal to the Jersey City Tfeid.] Trenton, Jane 7,1889.—The State House boomers are at peace. There is no danger now of a repetition here of the scenes of the rush to Oklahoma. The State House Commissioners have made a fair divisiou of the claims—that is, the new rooms, and everybody is satisfied. It did look at one time as if the boomers would have to hustle or get left. They were, figuratively speaking, encamped in the corridors of the new State House, waiting for the Governor to issue a pro clamation that the building was open Then, so the talk went, they intended to race for possession of the best rooms. Secretary of State Kelsey and Cl erk I.ee, of the Supreme Court, did not wait for any proclammation, but moved several days ago into the rooms which had been intended for their offices from the start. Most of the other rooms were assigned at the meeting of the State House Commis sion today, and the various officials are well pleased with their new quarters. For the present the offices will be fur nished with only the most indispensable articles, because the State is short of ready cash. . State Treasurer Toffey comes out well. His new offices are in the front of the the building and next to Mr. Kelsey’s are probably the pleasantest set. THEY WILL PAY TAXES. The State Board of Assessors have made out their first schedule of the re turns of miscellaneous corporations for taxes of 1889, and Secretary John T. Van Cleef has sent it to the Comptroller.

An examination of the list of corpora tions taxed on capital stock shows some queer results. For instance, the New Jer sey Steamboat Company contributes $2,000 a year to the State’s coffers. Who would recognize under that title the People’s Line of steamboats running between New York and Albany? Then there is the Metropolitan Traction Company, capital *10,000,000 and annual taxes $10,000. Ac cording to Mr. Irvine E. Maguire, assist ant secretary to the Board, this is com posed of the Philadelphia syndicate of street car men who own the Broadway road in New York city among others. Another is the Novelty Air Ship Com Sany, which is now exhibiting a model in ew York. When its projectors incor porated the company in New Jersey with a capital stock of $1,000,000, it may be doubted if they realized that they would be asked to pay *1,000 taxes on It. Other corporations Include companies which carry on manufacturing business of one kind or another in New York; min ing companies in Mexico; the company that runs the swellest hotel In Jackson ville; companies which grow cocoanuts in the tropics; one of the biggest producers of glucose; cattle companies in the South West; Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show; Starln’s Transportation Company; the New York and Boston Rapid Transit Company; the Southern Cotton Oil Com pany, and Wanamaker & Brown, of Philadelphia, who sent out the famous circulars asking Postmasters forjtrade on the ground that John Wanamaker was Postmaster General. There are also two companies whose object it is to find hid den treasure, one in Vigo and the other m Delaware Bay.

There was a strange case of mistaken identity at St. Mary’s Hospital. Some months ago an old woman, who went by the name of McCarthy and lived at West Hoboken, but whose real name was Kuhn, was taken to the hospital suffering from chronic paralysis. She died on Tuesday night, and on Wednesday morning Poor master Kiem, of West Hoboken, was in formed of her death. He notified Under taker F. Volk to take charge of the hotly for burial, and it was accordingly re moved to his establishment. In the mean time it was discovered that Mrs. McCar thy had a son residing somewhere near Bayonne. He was notified of his mother’s death by messenger. An error had been made in registering the names on the Hospital ltook, with a strange result. The dead woman’s name was Kuhn, but she had been entered on the books as McCarthy, and Mrs. McCarthy, the young man’s mother, who was also in the Hospital sick, was entered on the book as Kuhn. Young McCarthy gave up his work and proceeded to have a last look at his mother’s features. Greatly agitated he was ushered into the undertaker’s store. Hying on a slab covered by a cloth lay the body. The covering was luised. The young man peered intently into the face of the deceased, and nearly fulnted. Then he gasped. ‘ That is not she.” An Investigation was made, and the error in the names was found. Mrs. McCarthy was alive and fairly well. She was propped up by pillows when her son was taken to see her. She was greatly pleased to see him, but no ticed the paleness of his face, and an ex planation became necessary. Hoboken Hriefs.
