COLONEL VAN CLEEF’S ACCIDENT. Bis Horse Beared and Fell Upon Him—The Fourth’s Triumphs. Special to the Jersey City News. Camp Green, July 18, 1889.—The breast of every Jerseyman on the ground, and there were at least 8,000 of them, swelled with pride this afternoon when Governor Green reviewed and inspected the First Brigade of the State militia. If the indi vidual Jersey breast did not swell it ought to have done so, for a finer set of better drilled men has seldom been seen on any camp ground. SALUTING THE GOVERNOR. The Governor, mounted upon a hand some bay and attended by his brilliant, white-helmeted staff, rode on to the ground at four o’clock as the assembled gun detachments belched forth a salute of twenty-one guns. The weather was charming. Overhead was a clear blue sky relieved by fleecy bits of clouds, while a light breeze from the ocean de lightfully tempered the atmosphere. A long line of carriages filled with the pretty girls who are part of New Jersey’s fame and their escorts lined the ground in tront oi me paraae, ana me space roped off for spectators was crowded. The brigade was drawn up, and Brigadier General Steele and his staff were in position when the Governor came upon the field. The General and his staff saluted and the brigade presented arms. Governor Green lifted his hat and joined Geueral Steele. THE REVIEW. They rode in front and rear of the lines, and the Governor und his staff cantered back to the reviewing point. General Steele took his position at the head of the brigade, and the march began. After the General came Major Brownlee, of the Fourth Regiment, who, being the senior drum major, commanded the band and massed drummers and lifers of the brigade. The brigade then marched by, the Fifth Regiment leading and the First, Second and Fourth Regiments and the Second, Third and First battalions followed in the order named. The rear was brought Tip by General J. Madison Drake’s gaudily attired Veteran Zouaves. Drum-Major Brownlee wheeled the mu Rii'w'ans to the right, where they stood plaving until the brigade had passed. Genital Steele saluted.the Governor and then took his place beside the Com mandei'-fn—» where he remained dur iugthe reVie"’- As each regiment came up its colonel aaln ted and then wheeled his horse into position beside the Governor and Brigauter General, where he re mained until his men had passed. When the colors wereVarried by they were dip ped to the GoveiHor, who saluted them by removing his hat as the drummers beat a ^ulut6 The march was admirably executed and the regiments were loudly applauded by their friends upon the ground, but those who received the most attention of this nature were the men of the Fourth aud Geueral Drake’s Veterans. Rone of the men marched better than the former aud the manner in which the rear rank of each company closed up was unequalled by any other regiment. The Governor watched his “boys,” as he likes to cail the militia, with a critical eye, and expressed his admiration for their ex cellent appearance and soldierly bearing in unmeasured terms. THE FOURTH’S LITTLE “EXCLUSIVE.” The review was soon followed by dress parade. The battalion formed as usual aud when the parade was dismissed Gen eral Steele, instead of returning immedi ately to his headquarters, remained in the field to watch Colonel Wanser form his men into line of battle aud march them across the field. The Fourth is the only regiment on the ground that has had the temerity to at tempt this difficult manoeuvre, and its execution by them Is always witnessed by a large number of spectators. Geueral Steele closely watched the Fourth until it dissauneared into its camp. Then turning to liis staff he said a few words of praise for the regiment and galloped off the field. The day opened misty aud cloudy and the geueral impression was that Gov ernor’s Day would be but a repetition of yesterday. The sun, however, came out while tin; men were at breakfast aud nnTeb-lv hvtrrViTeneri things un. One of tiie excellent features of the camp is that owing to its sandy soil it quickly becomes •dry after the heaviest rain. About eleven o’clock the grounds began %o be filled with visitors. A large G. A. Ih excursion from Newark was at hand and Van Houten Post brought down .thirteen car loads of Jersey City people. jLr fact, so many familiar faces were to be see”11 in the Fourth’s camp that it looked ns though Jersey City had moved into tents' *>.V the sea. Mile practice, guard moun ting and battalion drills took most of the .time until noon. At th o’clock the ambulance corps gave an exhibition of their skill in hand ling the si vk. and injured. INT. VIEtMT.NO EXHIBITIONS. Then came «he review and dress parade, and at the cloi V of t he latter the Gatling gun detachme V of the First Battalion, under commandVf Mentenant Olauskie. gave an exhibit; on drill at the brigade headquarters. This was one of* the most Interesting features of the coWap. The quickness with which the youi \g men handled their nieces, changed its wheels, loaded and discharged it delighted the largo number of spectators which crowded about. Especially euterta iuing>was tne manner in which the men dropped off as though shot while the gurt. was being tired, leav ing but two or thaee to' manipulate the ^Hvliile this was going on At headquar ters lieutenant Babcock and his gun de tachment of the Fourith Regiment were giving an equally attractive and skillful exhibition at the rear1 of the*Fourth’s camp. . . ,_, , The band gave a concert at vbrigade headquarters in the evening, and at nine o’clock the signal corps gave an exhibition of their methods of conveying Informa tion by flashing torches. When the Governor and his flitaff came upon the field the horseawhifiil General Kearney was riding boltedland ddkhed for tlie crowd. . ' .. The General succeeded 1m checking the horse before auy oue.wasBnilired. Pierce, Potts and Bowen, the leadalg merchants of Manasquan, sent a letter to Genera l Steele laBt evening, in whidh they said, that thev had made no complaint against ' the members of the brigade ftp the. Mayor I or to anyone else. On the contrary, they have always found the men orderly and well behaved. The writers requested the General to have the letter reud to each company. COLONEL VAN CLEEF INJURED. When I passed Brigade Headqnarters this evening I saw Colonel John T. Van Cleef, once clerk of the J ersey City Board of Finance, but now secretary of the State Board of Assessors, nursing an ugly wound on his forehead. "How did you get it, Colonel?” I asked. I I “Why’ he replied, “I was going to the review this afternoon, when ray horse reared aud fell over backward. I man aged to keep from beneath him, but he plunged head foremost under the barbed wire fence that guards the grounds aud X was badly cut. It was a lucky and a nar row escape for me, I tell you. The horse tore himself bailly in his wild efforts to recover his feet.” Tonight the camp has been a pande monium pure and simple. Chinese 1 an terns decorate most of the streets, bon flres are blazing at various points on the parade, while the din of arums, cheers and yells of all descriptions which come from the various regiments is deafeniug. CROWDS OF VISITORS. President Edward F. C. Young, of the First National Bank, was one of the visitors to camp today. He was there bv invitation from Brigade Headquarters, I believe. Ex-Governor Abbett was among the honored guests of the day. He mude a call upon the Fourth Regiment boys, among whom he is very popular.

Steelman, pastor of the Mount Ida Baptist Church, Troy, N. Y. A call was extended to him two weeks ago and the auswer has just been received.

Young Probst lies at the City Hospital in nearly the same condition as yesterday. By request of his brother, the Rev. Mr. Bull pastor of the Salem Church, Green ville, paid him a visit.

I HO HOKES El JIMS M rST J.EA VE THE WATER FROST. The Great Schemes of the I.iml and Im provement Company Are Moving On —A Rescue In a Bathhouse—Hoboken Notes. The Btory published in The Jersey City News yesterday showing the con templated changes on the river front by the Hoboken Hand and Improvement Company caused much surprise in Ho boken. The papers were much sought after. A representative from Mr. Mills.thelum ber dealer, called at the Hoboken office, and said that the story as published, was correct in every detail. He was also authority for the statement that all the firms doing business on the river front* • between Fifth street and the Fourteenth street ferry, hod received notice to quit. It has been a stringent rule of the com pany when leasing out premises never to give more than a year to year agreement. At Fifth street. Charlie Kuenlen built a handsome saloon at a cost of over $3,000 about a year ago, and a few days ago he received notice to quit. The Sixth street coal dock, Mills’ and Schultz’s lumber yards and Desmond’s yacht building yard will also be moved. None of the firms have any idea in what direction they will seek new premises, and are put to a deal of inconvenience. Where the Hiver Walk bends into Fifth street it will be straightened out to be on a level with River street on the other side of the Park. When the River Walk is transformed into a street Hoboken will lose one of its principal beauties and one of its liveliest business interests. It is said that the Rotterdam Steamship Com pany will migrate from Jersey City to the Fifth Street Dock at Hoboken, but there is no verification of the statement. — Hoboken Notes. William Richter, a car driver, who lives at No. 9 Willow street, finds it hard work to agree with his neighbors. Early this morning he was arrested on the com plaint of Mrs. Wilhelmina Wolff, who charged him with assault and battery.

Dr. Simon Bondy. recently Township Physician of West New York, has added to a reputation which was bad enough before. Rebecca Hartmaun, a young girl of eighteen, was employed In Laubtsch’s silk factory. About a month ago she complained of rheumatism and one of her companions advised her to consult Bondy. She did so, and that wise and careful physician after a great deal of hemming and hawing told her that the only remedy that would afford her any relief was a pair of electric stockings. The doctor offered to procure these for her at the moderate cost of $15. The poor girl paid the money from the little sum she had saved from her wages and patiently waited for her stockings. Two days afterwards Bondy cleared out and has not been seen since. Rebecca is still waiting for her stockings. Bondy is the man who was arrested for stealing a microscope some mouths ago. He wriggled out of thatcharge, but it was shortly after discovered that ne was not a graduate from u medical college and that his license from the Board of Health had been forged. This hastened his exit from West New York, and poor Rebecca Hartmann’s $15 came to him just iu time to pay his trav eling expenses. JULES T.

He Will lie Named at Anbury Park Next Thursday* Special to the Jersey City News. Tsextos, July 13, 1889.—The Prohibi tion State Convention will be meet at As busy Park on Thursday, when they will place in nomination an entire State ticket with either a wealthy Friend named Richardson, from Camden, or Judge Mor row, of Warren couuty, as the Guberna torial candidate. The Democrats are un certain just now where they will hold their couvention. The State Committee has held no regular meeting recently and the informal conferences have only re sulted in a confusion of ideas. The Republicans are talking about the middle of September, but it will be nearer October 1. At the conference held in Jer sey City two weeks ago no attempt was made to settle the time. It was all left to a committee of three and they left it to Comptroller Anderson, and he is not in a hurry about it. It is probable that he is waiting to see what the Democrats are go ing to do about it. Ex-Congressman Hires, of Salem, who has been mentioned as a possible candi date for Governor, says he is not a candi date, and his candid opinion is that the nomination will go to General E. Burd Grubb. Should it become a fact that Senator Gardner, of Atlantic county, is not a can didate for renomination, the young re Bublicans are going to push Mayor Samuel i. Hoff nigh to the foreground. He has twice been Mayor of Atlantic City, and is perhaps the most active young worker in the county.__ WHAT IS LUMP JAW? Six Head of Cattle Killed on Account of a New Distemper. Six head of cattle, owned by Otto Goldsmith, were killed by Dr. Dimond at the cattle yards yesterday. They were suffering from actinonry coste, or lump jaw. In the morning Dr. Gordon, president of the County Board of Health, sent for Dr. Dimond and requested him to examine the sick cattle which had come from Cin cinnati. The Inspector found the disease malignnnt and so reported. Dr. Gordon consulted some other mem bers of the Health Board and ordered them killed. The carcasses were taken to Auten reith s factory, and this morning a post mortem examination showed the diag noses to be correct. The disease is said to be contagious, but Dr. Dimond stated that but comparatively little is known about it. In nearly every case the disease is caused by cattle standing in the stables where others were when afflicted with it. The cattle it is claimed rub the throat on the manger until an abrasion is made, and it is believed the germs of the disease of cattle in this way reach the blood and cause the trouble. The cases are very rare. Goldsmith is very wroth over the loss of his cattle, and threatens to sue the county. Valuable Iron Treatises Stolen* Special to the Jersey City Neics. Washington, N.

BEHRENS KEEPS A HOTEL And When a Couple Register She Isn’t Called Upon to Ask Them to Show Their Marriage Certifi cate. Jcxe 20, 1889. To the Board nf Aldermen:— Gentlemen:—A resolution passed by your hon orable body granting a license to M. Behrens to sell liquor at NTo. 115 Hoboken avenue is herewith • returned without my signature. The information is furnished to me that the person named is a woman, and that she has kept, and intends to keep, a disorderly house. This fact was probably unknown to your committee. The place is known as the "Old Stone House,” and is notorious- Very truly yours. Orestes Cleveland. 8 Its name, the “Old Stone House,” bear to the mind an almost graphic description of the unsavory resort at the head of the Hoboken avenue hill. IT’S A HOTEL SHE KEEPS. When I visited the place yesterday I found, as the Mayor’s letter had prepared me to expect, a woman in charge of it— a comely and well preserved German woman of forty-five perhaps. “It is a hotel that I keep,” said Mrg% Behrens to me, “and not a saloon, and I will show you the register in the office.1' This she did later. “ Do men and women come here and re main over night?" I asked. “Yes, sir. 1 keep a hotel. Sometimes a man may come alone, sometinfes a lady may, and often a gentleman and lady come together. They ask for a room, and they are permitted to stay as long as they please, either a day or a month.” NO QUESTIONS ASKED. “I give them board if desired. My hotel is conducted the same as Taylor’s Hotel is, and if a gentleman and lady ask for .iLi.unniiuuciuuu.'N 1 am uui wuuuu iu as& iu see their marriage certificate, am I? Is that done at any hotel?” ‘‘It is said that fights take place here.” “That is not true. The policeman on this beat will tell you different. There has never been a fight in my house, and. I have been here six years, and was five years on the corner of Central and Hobo ken avenues. I also want to say that I permit no music or singing in the hotel, and that my barroom is closed on Sunday to the public, but, like any other hotel, I serve my boarders.” SHANNON TnE GROWLER. “It’s all the fault of one man,” she added. “Shannon,” I suggested. "Yes, Shannon. He appears to have an idea that he can do as he pleases and now he wants to prevent me from earning a living. Before I say anything I would like to have you see Judge Beach, Judge Aldridge, Janies Burke, the mineral water man, and Mr. Donnelly, across the street. They are all neighbors and their opinion might go further than what I can sav. They will all vouch for the respecta bility of my hotel.” DON’T ASK FOP. MARRIAGE CERTIFICATES. Mrs. Behrens, when she had said this, told me to follow her. She went to the wall, which was papered; touched a small knob and a door opened. It was papered like the wall and when closed would never be noticed without a careful sur vey. We finally reached the “office.” The furniture consisted of one desk and a hotel register, well signed, showing guests daily. Several beer tables could be seen in an adjoining room. When Mrs. Behrens showed me her hotel register she exclaimed:— “Xow, must'I ask my guests to show their marriage certificates before I can re ceive them?” A “QUIET” PLACE. Ex-Sheriff Heintze said to me that the “Stone House” was considered very quiet. He had heard rumors about its character, but he had no personal knowl edge. He remembered when Meyers was convicted for keeping his infamous dive, a number of women testified that they went from there to the Franklin Hotel. Police Sergeant Wolleben, of the Third precinct, described the hotel as as quiet a place us existed in his precinct. “I have heard reports about its being of ; ill repute,” said he, but there never has been a complaint mude here about it. Of , course we watch it.” . At the handsome house of Contractor Shannon, fifty yards east of the Frank lin Hotel, Mrs. Shannon informed me that her husband had gone to Chicago. When . told the nature of my errand she said that her husband had told her that rows " frequently took place iu the hotel and that she hud heard sounds of fighting at night, but she could not say that the sounds came from the hotel. 1 “My husband told me it was a place of E ill repute,” she said, “but I understood - from him that no female inmates were i there, but that people went and came as <i,ou olmeo \fr Khunnnn lias bnnwm th A * place u long time, for he has lived as a r neighbor for many years. He has clrcu f lated a petition to have the Aldermen re t fuse the hotel a license because of its dis orderly character.” .lames Hurke, whose factory is opposite the hotel, declared the place eminently respectable and a lit place to be licensed. ‘MUST LIKE TAYLOR’S.” 3 Constable Joe Locke said he had known s the house ever since Mrs. Behrens kept it, j uml it was always an orderly one. "It was run.” said he, “just like Tay , lor’s, oulv it is not so large.” He under t stood that any one could go there as at any hotel only, and he never heard of a row. He believed the hotel should be given a license. Judge Aldridge, who lives nearly oppo site the "Stone House,” said he had never 1 heard of any trouble or rows there, but h he had seeu imputations on the character * of the house iu the papers. He said fur j tlier that once Mrs. Behrens was a tenant 1 of his, and a good one. “Judge Beach told me,” said Judge Aldridge, “thut he had never seen any thing wrong about the hotel aud he had B no complaint to make.” Judge Beach e also lives opposite the place. - WHAT THE ALDERMEN SAY. y Alderman Prigge, chairman of the Ex v cise Committee, when asked how such a s place had been licensed, said lie could not tell what would become of Mrs, Behreu s application. It has been taken from the committee to he considered by the full t Board. He did uot know whether he , would vote to sustain the veto of the 1 Mayor and eoidd not tell until a hearing 3 jn the matter takes place and the charac ter of the house is sifted, h Alderman Donnelly said he had been asked to vote to sustain the Mayor’s veto aud he expected to do so. Alderman Van Horn, the third member > 0f the Kxcise Committee, was absent 0 from the last meeting and he knew uoth * ing about the matter. e * it Failure* of the Week. a There were 218 failures in the United [1 States reported to Bradstreet’s during the week, against 152 In the preceding week r and 152, 148, 189 and 170 in the correspoud r ing weeks of 1888, 1887, 1880 and 1885 re ; spectively. The total number of failures < 1 iu the United States January 1st to date is 6.255, against 5,553 iu 1888.
