I " VOL l. NO. 140. " JERSEY" CITY,____ PRICE TWO CENTS" He Will Test the Scope of the Tenure of Office Act. ONE POINT DECIDED FOR HIM. He Won’t Have to Do Patrol Duty Till the Supreme Court Renders a Decision. Detective George Douglass won the first battle in bis war against the Police Com missioners before Justice Dixon, of the ^Supreme Court, in Chancery Chambers. Mr. M. T. Newbold in his behalf applied to the Justice for a writ of certiorari to remove the proceedings of the Police Board, which assigned him to patrol duty, into the Supreme Court for review. Mr. Newbold stated the fact that Doug lass was appointed a detective in June, 1887; that since that time he had never had a charge preferred against him and claimed that the action of the Board was an attempt to reduce him in rank in Violation of the Tenure of Office law. HAS HIS BANK BEEN BEDUCED? Corporation Council Edwards, who rep resented the city, opposed the motion and eaid that there was no intention on the part of the Commissioners either to de grade Douglass or reduce his salary. He also read the resolution sending Douglass to the Fourth Precinct, and claimed that it did not make him a patrol man. Mr. Newbold read an affidavit of Douglass, in which it was stated that he was ordered on patrol duty by Captain Farrier, who told him tbiit in accordance with the resolution of the Board he would have to consider Douglass an ordinary patrolman. Mr. Edwards still claimed that there wus no intention to make Douglass a patrolman and read the duties of a detective as laid down in the manual of the force to show that Douglass’ assignment was in strict accord with his duty os a detective. “Just read the duties of a patrolman,” said Justice Nixon. Mr. Edwards read several sections when the Justice interrupted him by saying unit taut was sunianii, uau liiuu sue 1e was doubt whether there is a difference between a patrolman and a detective. A STAY GRANTED. % There seemed to be an attempt, the Judge said, to change Douglass’ position, ynd he thought that a reduction of salary -would necessarily follow a reduction of rank. At any rate, he said the case was doubt ful enough to send it before the Supreme Court and he would grant the rule. Mr. Edwards asked that the rule should not act as a stay. Mr. Newbold objected, and ufter a consultation between the Judge and counsel the stay was granted. This, according to Mr. Newbold, will prohibit the Board, or Captain Farrier, or any one else, from assigning Mr. Doug ass to patrol duty until the matter is fin jlly decided by the court. A DOLLAR FOR A BRIER Policeman Murphy Indignantly Denies Scavenger Sneider’s Charge. John Snelder, a scavenger, of No. 23 Paterson street, Hoboken, was arraigned before Justice Stilsing, this morning, and jn his defence made a serious charge against Policeman Murphy, who arrested him. Murphy stated that last night he found Sneider’s men cleaning out a vault on Monmouth street. In accordance with his orders he asked Sneider for his per mit. Sneider, who was asleep in a buggy, be came abusive and the policeman put him under arrest. He resisted and Murphy was obliged to call Policemen Lavlns and McGurk to his assistance. On the way to the police station Sneider, the policeman sayB, declared that ho was a friend of Commissioner Kelly and that he would have Murphy dismissed from the force. Sneider said in his own behalf that he ould not And his permit when Arst asked for it as it was mixed up with a large bundle of papers. Murphy, he alleges, then said to him that he would Ax it up if he would give him $1. Murphy, who has the reputation of be ing an excellent policeman indignantly denied Sneider’s accusation. He alleges that while he was trying to arrest Sneider Charles Black, a workman of Sneider’s, ran up with an uplifted hatchet and threatened him. Black was also charged with cruelty to animals, as the horses i which lie was driving were covered with t sores under their collars. He was held for examination. __ i T1IEY SKIPPED SOMETHING. The Adjustment Commissioner* Oyer. iUUMJU U uig AK* atouM Judge Dixon, on application ol Corporation Counsel Edwards, this morning granted an order re I. quiring Henry Taylor to show cause why the adjustment recently made by the Commissioners of Adjustment, upon his property at the Newark avenue and Coles street triangle, should not be readjusted. The Commissioners get from the offi cials In the City Hall the full list of liens against property in arrears, and moke the returns thus secured the basis of their subsequent considerations. By inadvert ence the City Collector reported that there were no unpaid taxes and assess ments against the property. As a matter of fact the arrearages were $621). Some unpaid taxes, reported from the City ICerk’s office, had, however, been adjusted at $290.68. k If Mr. Taylor had patd this amount there would have been an end of the citv’s pursuit of him, but as he had not l paid, the Commissioners deemed it but px-oper to ask to have the adjustment re opened, so that the overlooked $690 claim may be acted upon. HOBOKEN'S P0STMAS1 ER. A Great Bow Among the Bepublicani About It. The Hudson County Republican Com mittee had a long and animated dis cussion at their rooms, In the Armory building, in Newark avenue, over the Hoboken Postmastership last night. Richard V. Taft, an old committeeman and an old soldier as well, and Leon H. Kendrick, who used to be ’Postmaster in this city, both sought the endorsement oi the committee. Kendrick had the endorsement of the committee once, but lost it when it was found that Waiinmaker would not ap point him, even at the President’s com mand. That put a lot of new candidates in the field. Taft, who was one of them, went before the committee to urge his claims. During the discussion Kendrick called Taft a liar, and there was a scene of great excite ment. The result of It all was that Dr. J. C. Kiel was endorsed by the com mittee. After the committee adjourned Ken drick and Taft renewed their wrangle on the street, and they came to blows. Friends separated them. Cook Not Homs Yet. Treasurer Cook, of the Greenville Building and Loan Association, is sti] among the missing. Greenville evidently expects him, however. The idea down there seems to be that he went off after a “tiff” with his step father, and that he is ready to come back as soon as the little breeze created by his disappearance has subsided. HIS WIFE LAY IN AMBUSH. And Bookkeeper Potter Was Caught launching with a Pretty Girl. * The hands employed in the First and Washington street corner of one the Lor illard building, were treated to a free cir cus a few days ago while enjoying their mid-day lunch. The actors were a Mr. Potter, head bookkeeper for the Macopin Ice Company, a pretty young woman with whom he was lunching, and his 180-pound wife with a bouncing baby in her arms. About two months ago Mr. Potter en gaged board at F. B. Kohlhund’s restaur ant, at the corner of First and Green streets. The location was conveni ent to hiS bustness. His wife traced him there last week and also tried to engage board at the same place. Being informed that no lady boarders were taken, she secured apart ments near by, from which she could keep an eye on her husband’s movements. On Monday, while passing G. Bush’s restaurant, at First and Washington streets, she espied her truant husband en joying an elaborate lunch in the ladies’ dining room in company with a young woman. She became furious. With her child in her arms she grabbed up a big stick from the sidewalk and made for the restaurant. Mr. Potter and the pretty young woman had finished their lunch and were just stepping joyously into the street when they were confronted by the enraged, portly Mrs. Potter, the baby and the stick. There was murder in Mrs. Potter’s eye, and Mr. Potter knew it. “A nico piece of business for a married man. Oh you—you—but you’re a nice father, ain’t you?” angrily cried the out raged woman. “And who are you?” turning with scorching glances to Mr. Potter’s astounded lunch partner. “Here, Mr. Patter, take your darling.” and Mr. Potter, amazed at first, sheepishly took the little bouncer from Mrs. Potter’s arms. Then he tried to appear cool by toying with the youngster in a paternal and affectionate style, while he attempted an explanation. But Mrs. Patter was in no mood to listen to explanations. The sight of the pretty interloper was enough for her. She made for the woman with a stick. Mr. Potter quickly deposited his baby on tVin /I irtir ciHoirulb on/1 rri>o)i1iarl Hl'a I n 1X7 ful wife with anything but a gentle hand. The racket had by this time drawn a crowd of curious people. The men in Lorillard’s flocked to the windows to wit ness the performance. In the meantime the strange woman made a hasty exit from the scene, and Mrs. Potter yelled to the men in the crowd to come and help her. That's what the men say. Mr. Potter soon got out of the crowd, and Mrs. Potter and her baby took the next train for Point Pleasant, where her relatives reside. NEWBOLD WINS HIS POINT. Judge Dixon Appoints New Men to Con demn Currie’s Woods. Ex-Mayor Gilbert Collins, in behalf of the Jersey City, Newark and Western Railroad, which is the eastern extension of the Lehigh Valley, applied to Justice Dixon this morning for the appointment of Commissioners to condemn a right of way through the Currie estate parallel to the line of the Waverly and New York Bay Railroad. Counsellors M. T. Newbold and Charles S. Black, who represented the Currie estate, objected to the motion on the ground that the papers upon which the application was based were defective. The petition set forth that the lands sought to be coudemned are the property of ‘‘Ellen, William and Robert Currie, executors and trustees,” while the affi davits submitted in verification of the petition simply named the three persons in their individual capacity. This, Messrs. Newbold and Black claimed, was, according to the statutes, a fatal error and invalidated the proceed ings. A long argument in which copious ex tracts from the Revised Statutes were submitted to the Justice for construction, followed. The Justice was inclined to consider the papers sufficient, and said that he would appoint the Commissioners. He also said that he was inolined to appoint Charles W. Allen, John D. Carscallen and Henry Dusenbury, who were now considering the application of the Waverly and New York Bay Railroad. Mr. Newbold then arose and said that the gentlemen named were in a position which precluded him from offering any objection to them. They were now con sidering an award to be made for prop erty belonging to the parties affected by the application and if he had the most valid objections he would hesitate to ex press them until they had made their award. He would therefore ask for an adjournment. X UUU i* tuiun. juu cuum aaj auy nuiu^ more uncomplimentary to the Commis sioners, Mr. Newbold,” the Justice re marked, “than that their verdict would be influenced by your objections. How ever, 1 will hear what you have to say.” Mr. Newbold replied that he did not think he should be called upon to state his objections at this time, and put a suppositious case to the Court to the effect that if they should state their objections in court and some one should carry them to the Commissioners they might, as human beings, none of whom are perfect, to some extent be influenced by the objec tion. The Justice thought if they were as good as the average that they would not. Finally Mr. Newbold said that lie had a specific objection to one of the gentlemen on the Commission which he could not at this time state, but which would merely preclude his appointment by the Court. In that case the Justice said he would appoint new Commissioners, and after a consultation with Messrs. Newbold, Black and Collins he named Charles H. O’Neill, James Warner and John Garrick. One Killed, Nine Injured. Rochester, N. Y., August 10,1S89.—At about eight o’clock this morning the ex press train on the Rome, Watertown and Ogdensburg Railroad, one and a half honrs behind time, ran into a stub train at Forest Lawn station, nine miles east of Rochester.

Should it make the journey in safety Graham will make preparations to occupy It on Its next journey. AiN OLD BOARD’S BAD JOB. aREENVIEEE’S PROTEST AGAINST A DEFECTIVE SEWER. -The Linden Avenue Failure Discussed Before the Commissioners of Streets and Water—It Was Paid for After the Citizens Had Kutered a Complaint. One of the jobs of the old Board of Works was the Linden avenue sewer. The work is defective and has collapsed, and the receiving basins are useless. The ••improvement” has been accepted and the contractor paid. The property owners interested pro tested before the contractor was paid, but their protest was ignored. They have not ceased protesting, and have brought the matter before the new Board of Street and Water Commissioners. The Board met last night to hear the complaint. Twenty indignant property owners were present. They submitted two affidavits, one made by Mr. Henry Smith, a practical plumber; the other by Mr. Ford, a boss mason. They described the faulty Construction of the sewer. The contractor had paid no heed to the specifi cations. The sewer had bulged. The connections were neglected, and, when made, old pipe was used. The tim bers had not been taken out; the receiv ing basins are improperly built; the brick is loose and can be removed by hand; the head stones are laid in only one place; the basins had not been sealed anti are filled with surplus sand, and the head of the sewer is over the grade. Mr. Charles Van Keuren, who was sent to make an examination by the Board, stated that at the places he was directed to inspect there were two breaks in the sewer where it had spread. There was a hole near Avenue E,a natural settlement. Mr. Smith remarked that the street had given way through the break, and the sand was being washed into the sewer. This break was caused by improper filling. LAYING IT TO THE OLI) BOARD. Contractor O’Neill, who built the sewer, was called. He explained that the trouble was caused by ;the interference of the Board of Works. Mr. Washbura was al lowed to put in a connection against his advice; and, instead of putting in a bend, a straight pipe was used. “I told the Commissioners that if they allowed the connection to be made that way that I would have nothing more to do with the job,” safcl he. “After a terrible storm on new rear s nay. wmcu cal ried away the stoue walls of the Mr. Washburn’s house, six feet of the sewer was knocked out by this wash from the connection. If it had not been a good sewer more of it would have gone. It was not my duty to do so, but I built a stoue wall and put in a llag where the water hits. At Avenue E the water pipe burst two years ago last March and the meu put in planks to support the pipe.” FAULTY CONNECTIONS. Commissioner Van Keuren—What about those connections ? “I don’t know. I wasn’t there all the time. The ground is sandy, and the re ceiving basins fill up in a night. I did not build fifty feet of the sewer that Mr. Simpson did not see except when he was away in California. He personally super intended the construction. He will tell you that it was a good job and I used good materials. I have nothing to do with the sewer now. I only desired to make this explanation.” The contractor had referred to a con nection made for Mr. Lembeck, and left the impression that it was a piece of un warranted interference on the part of the Board of Works. Mr. Lembeck took him to task, and declared that O’Neill had put in the connection himself and had been paid for it. President Somers said to O’Neill:—“You left some surplus dirt there?” “Maybe I did. I think these people would'hang me.” Mr. Simpson said the work was defect ive. Where the pipe had burst it had not been shored up. He had not seen a bucketful of cement, or concrete, or flag put in a receiving basin. The basins should be perfectly water tight; they are now useless. The bricks can be taken out at any place. IT WAS PAID FOR TOO SOON. Commissioner Van Keuren stated that the sewer was a cheap one, as it cost only 83.35 per foot, and the tax was light on the property owners. If anything is done now it will have to be at the expense of the city. Mr. Simpson said the property owners did not object to the amount, and would gladly pay if the sewer and receiving basins were put in proper condition and the dirt removed from the street. Commissioner Van Keuren stated that when the protest was entered before the contractor had received the retained per centage he had urged the old Board to withhold payment. In his absence the Board ordered the amount paid to the contractor. It is bad policy, he said, when objection is made not to withhold payment. The Commissioners are satisfied that the property owners have just cause for com plaint and will have the sewer repaired. Antiquarian lireacli of Promise. Frangolt Schneider is a fifty-six year old Ijothnrio. The object of his most recent attentions is Juliana Weller, a maiileu of but fifty years.

Philadelphia, August 10, 1889.—The suit of the Philadelphia and Reading nauroau against me Auains express Company for the recovery of $84,872.42 has been discontinued by the counsel for the Reading Company. The action grew out of the contract for the carrying of express matter which formerly existed between the companies, and which was terminated last February, when the United States Express Company began sending its mat ter over-tne Reading’s lines. It is thought that the dispute has been adjusted to the satisfaction of all the concerned parties. THE KICKERS’ PRIMARIES. They Will Be Held August 29, by Districts, Not By Preciucts. The new' Democratic Committee, a3 the seceders from the General Committee’s authority like to call themselves, held the shortest meeting in Roche’s Hall last evening which they have had since they started their kick. The only business of Importance which they transacted was to fix Thursday, August 29, between the hours of four and ten p. m., as the time for holding their primaries for delegates to the Guberna torial Convention. Billy Kern started the boll rolling by moving that the by-laws be suspended and the delegates to the State Convention be elected by districts Instead of precincts. This was objected to on the ground that the voters could not be enrolled by pre cincts as called for by the constitution. Mr. Kern thought they could, and added that district primaries would be far less expensive. Chas. D. J. Noelke, who strenuously ob jects to being called a Kern man, and who In the absence of Chairman Stuhr.was pre siding with much dignity and grace, re marked that it would require a two-thirds vote to carry the motion, and then put the question. It received a three-thirds vote and was declared adopted. The en rollment will be held two days before the primaries. The secretary read a letter from Charles D. J. Noelke stating that the Third Dis trict Club had endorsed the new com mittee and asked to be recognized as a cogwheel in the new machine. The communication was received with much applause and Mr. Kern moved that it be accepted and filed. Mr. Noelke sug gested an amendment to the eifect that the club be notified and then, with an I did-that air, put the motion. William Kern, Esq., announced that the Fourth District Club would hold a mihlir*. meefinir on Tuesday evening, and according to Patrick Sheeran, a club will be organized in the Second district, Monday evening. Mr. Gallagher said a club had been organized in the Seventh district, which wished to be admitted into the organization, while from the Tenth district came the report that the organi zation was well under way and ready to go to work for the cause of “honest elec tions and fair primaries.” NOT ENOUGH MEAT FOR HIM. Mr. Steinbecker’* Supper Wa* Scant, So He Beat HU Wife. Michael Steinbecker, of No. 566 Hender son street, was brought before Justice Stilsing this morning upon complaint of his wife. Policeman Donovan testified that he heard cries of murder coming from the Steinbeckers’ housnWhen he reached there he met Mrs. Steinbecker with her face covered with blood running from her husband, who was chasing her with an axe. Mrs. Steinbecker said that her husband, who does not support her, came home about a week ago, and she, out of pity, took him in. Last evening at supper he asked her for meat, and when she said she had no more to give him he threw the piece he had at her and tried to throw her out of a window. Failing in that he beat her with au axe handle over her head and body. Steinbecker denied the charge and said his wife was a bad woman. He said that he was well known in Baltimore, and if the Judge wanted to know anything about him he could telephone to Balti more “as it went very quick nowadays.” He was held.__ A Surprise and Book* for Kd. Kelly. A pleasant surprise was tendered Mr. Kdward Kelly at his residence, No. 337 Henderson street, Wednesday evening, by the members of the Lady Golden Bells.

There Was a Wine Booth on the State Camp Ground, and the Ladles Wanted Him to Shut It Up—He Has Not Done It Up to Date. Last Thursday afternoon it came to the knowledge of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union, of Manasquan, that there was a beer saloon being maintained on the State camp grounds at Sea Girt. At a meeting held by the ladies this mat ter was brought up for consideration Mrs. E. D. Stults, the president of the body, appointed Mrs. A. M. Lake, wife of the pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and Mrs. B. B. Burdge, the wife of a well known railioad engineer, to verify the statements made as to the illegal sale of liquor and to draft suitable resolutions on the subject. Mrs. Lake ascertained from the Clerk of Monmouth county that no license to sell liquor, either py retail or wholesale, at Camp Green had been granted. the ladies take actios. On Monday afternoon the white ribbon ladies met again and adopted a set of resolutions which the committee were authorized to present to Governor Green. So cordial was the endorsement of these resolutions that some fifteen of the ladies volunteered to accompany the committee and give support to the sentiments by their presence. The town omnibus was secured, and the seventeen ladies filled every part of it, with one stout lady out side crowding the driver. They drove to the State camp ground and round the Governor down on the range. It was the one day of the season when the Chief Ex ecutive claims he must be free from vis itors, for it is the day when he comes down to the level of a common private and takes his place on the range, with rifle in hand, to qualify as a marksman. He had just made a score of seventeen on the 200-yard range, and had begun shoot ing at a distance of 500 yards. He had still two cartridges to his account when the Manasquan stage, with its load of protestators drew up. Mrs. Lake and ner colleague, Mrs. Burdge, stepped from the coach and were received by Colonel John C. Owens, assistant inspector of rifle practice. They asked to see the Governor. He was told of the visitors’ presence after the proper salutes due to his exalted position, but he let go his two remaining cartridges tinri Rnp.rpf»rl*»rl in matincr a conro of He then laid aside his rifle and met the committee. The ladles presented him with the resolutions passed in the Manas quan Hall an hour previous. It took the Governor but a few minutes to read them. Then followed a brief dialogue between the Governor and Mrs. Lake. According to the Governor’s account this was an un conventional, commonplace expression of opinion on both sides, but according to Mrs. Lake the dialogue, though short, was of much force. “The Governor asked,” said Mrs. Lake, telling the story, “how we knew that this illegal sale of liquor was going on, and I answered that I knew and had the proof with me. His answer to this was, ‘well, I guess you ladies know more what is going on around here than I do.’ “I asked him if it was not his business to know what was going on, and his reply was, ‘You seem to know all about it.’ We were through and withdrew.” THE REFRESHMENT TENT. The refectory or refreshment tent, in which was all the evil complained of, was visited during the search tor the Gov ernor. It is a regulation messhouse, lib erally decorated with Chinese lanterns and placards urging the patrons to report overcharges to the cashier. Several offi cers were eating a roast beef dinner, which was being washed down by lager beer of unknown manufacture, because the bottles were not labeled. The pro prietor of the restaurant is W. J. Gleason, of Newark. He is well known in sporting circles, and many years of experience in feeding the multitude has given him a State reputation. "We never sell whiskey here,” said Mr Gleason, in the way of explanation. “We furnish beer only with meals. We do this because after long hours on the range the men get warm and thirsty, and the rigid discipline prevents them from leaving the camp grounds. Otherwise, many of the men would drift over to Manasquan and paint the town, Frequently the privates come down here with pocket flasks which they drink, and if they show the effects of it we are accredited with making them druni.” “I remember the visit of these ladies,” said Governor Green when approached about it, “I was on the range at that time, so to prevent the scorer being com pelled to wait for me, I finished the one or two oarrtidges that I had, before an swering the summons. I invited them to step into the ammunition quarters out of the sun. I read their resolutions and told them I hod no knowledge of any viola tion of the laws on the camp grounds. They admitted to me that their informa tion was only hearsay. 1 then put the resolutions into my pocket, but one of the leaders requested their return. 1 told lilicui inni UO luv cuuuuuuivauuu ytu.y UU' dressed to me I would keep them. The ladies retired. I bowed them good after noon and that is all there was about the interview.’ General W. Bird Spencer, who is in charge of the range, stated that he under stood that the United States law covered this particular case aud that the beer was only served with the meals. The disci pline this year has been better than for ten years and no drunkenness has been noticed. Colonel De Lancey G. Walker, of the Governor’s staff, assistant in spector of rifle practice, in his statement said that no liquor is sold between the meals and that the restaurant closed promptly at six o’clok. A “JOURNAL” FAKE. Musal Has Not Accused Hetty Fiala ol Murder. The Journal had a beautiful fake from Hoboken yesterday. It alleged that Marin Musal, of No. 18 Wilton street, had gone before Justice Kusch and accused hei sister-in-law, Betty Fiala of No. 85 Adams street, of having committed a murder loug ago in Germany. I visited the Musal family at No. If Willow avenue, this morning. Mr. Musal said that lie never heard of sucli an outrageous liar as the reporter who wrote the story for the Journal. ‘‘There is not one word of truth,” said Mr. Musal, “in the statement by that paoer that either I or my wife accused Betty Fiala of being a murderer. I waul to find that reporter, that’s all. ”My wife had some little misunderstand ing with Betty, but I swear we never accused her of being a murderer.” I tried to find Justice Kusch this morn ing, but failed to do so.

Little “Tommy” Hickey, the Hoboken waif who has fallen heir to about $40,000i will be taken to St. Francis’ College, Brooklyn, in the course of a day or two. Brother Stanislaus of that institution, who was a playmate of the little fellow’s father in Ireland, is at present away on his vacation. I saw Brother Jerome, the president of St. Francis’ College, Baltic street, Brook lyn, last night. He said, “Brother Stanis laus, who is looking after little Hickey’s interests, was a playmate of the boy’s father in Ireland. The Hickeys are well fixed in the old country and recently an uncle of the Hoboken waif died, leaving thousands of pounds to be divided among lus relatives. Tommy’s share will be quite a handsome sum. When Brother Stanis laus returns from his vacation he will take Tommy to this college, and we will probably keep him here forsome time and attend to his spiritual and moral training. We will in the course of time send him to Ireland to claim what belongs to him.” The Jugend Verein’s Safi. The seventh annual grand afternoon and evening excursion of the Jugend Verein, of the German Evangelical Church of Hoboken, took place yesterday after noon and evening. The mammoth barge Charles Spear was hired for the occasion. The happy excursionists, who numbered about two hundred, left the Fifth street dock at quarter-past two in the afternoon and went as far as Fort I^ee. Prof. Juncker’s orchestra was on board the barge and discoursed the music. There was lots of dancing and singing and fun of all kinds. Among the gentle men who participated in the excursion were F. W. Deitering, president of the Jugend Verein; Mr. D. H. Schmidt, the vice president, and Mr. John Gehrs, the treasurer. The barge returned to the Fifth street dock at nine o’clock, and, taking on a couple of dozen of those who were unable to go out in the afternoon, proceeded again up the river. The excur sionists did not return till a late hour. All agreed that they never before had had such a pleasant time. The funeral of Mr. Thomas W. Thomas, who died of apoplexy at his residence, No. 328 Bloomfield street, Hoboken, Tuesday afternoon, took place yesterday afternoon from the First Baptist Church, at Third and Garden street. The interment was in the Hoboken Cemetery. Mr. Thomas was bom in Burlington county, this State, seventy-two years ago, and came to Hoboken in 1846. He for a time kept a private day school, but for several years past he was employed as a bookkeeper in the soap manufactory of James K. Pyle ■& Co., in New York. He was a deacon of the First Baptist Church in Hoboken and first superintendent of the Sunday school. He leaves a widow and five grown up sons and daughters. ACCUSES HIS VENEEABLE SON. White Haired Patrick Maloney In Court Against White Haired Michael Maloney. A white-haired old man, feeble with age, supported himself on his cane as h< tottered up to the bench of Justice Stils ing’s court room this morning. He was Michael Maloney, who has foi forty years attended one switch in tht Erie Bailroad yards. “I’m here, yer Honor,” he said to the Court, “to make a charge of assaull against mv son, Patrick.” When Patrick was called forward an other gray haired man, less feeble than the old switch-tender, stepped from the crowd. Holding his hat with both hands ir front of him, he walked with sheepish aii to the middle of the court room. Justice Stilsing looked up in astonish ment. “Is that your son?” he asked of the de crepit old man. “He is, yer Honor.” "How old are you, Michael?” queriec the now amused Court. “I’m seventy-seven, yer Honor.” “And how many may you be, Patrick?’ the Court asked, turning his attention tc the other man. “I’m fifty-three, ye’r Honor,” was hii half-muttered response. The old man said that his almos equally aged son had kicked and abuset “And he tried to poison me,” said th< ' younger of the old men, pointing to thi older of the old men. “It’s poisoned with rum, he is,” re torted the old switchman. There is doubt of the younger of tin old men’s sanity. He is committed ti await examination. He is unmarried anc has lived with his father till now. A Quiet Day for Mr*. Harrison.

WILY UTMfllMLAlB Planning for Their Share of the Swag After Their Arrest. MANY ROBBERIES TRACED. Practiced Boy Criminals Linked with the Community of New York Thieves. The arrest of Daniel McQuinlan,Charles Munkel and Charles Jones by Policeman Kelly on Wednesday night proves to be a more important capture than at first ap peared. The three young men were ar rested as suspicious characters and upon them were found several articles which had been stolen from Garrison & Coles’ hardware store on Newark avenue. Sev eral small robberies have been perpe trated in that neighborhood and it oc curred to Chief Murphy that these boy* might be the thieves. He kept them apart and by a judicious course of examination secured a confession from Jones and Mc Quinlan. In all their statements they seemed anxious to exonerate Munkel, which seemed rather peculiar to the Chief, as Munkel’s reputation was none of the best. ONE HOUSE ROBBED TWICE. Yesterday further information was elicited from the boys which to some ex tent explained their anxiety to clear Munkel. They confessed that on July 80 and 31 they broke into the house of Monta. gue Redgrave, No. 568 Pavonia avenue, and stole a lady’s gold watch, a seal skin sacque, a locket set with diamonds, a val* uable Knight Templar’s sword, several rings and other property valued in all at several hundred dollars. Mr. Redgrave’s family were in the omintnt of tAit* Hmn and nid nnf loavu nf the robbery until August 1. They were not aware then that the house had been entered more than once. Detective Smith recovered the watch from a pawnbroker, with whom it was pledged at two o’clock of the day before the house was supposed to have been entered. This somewhat mystified the Chief and he spoke to the boys about it. “Oh, that’s plain enough,” they said. “We took the watch the night before” THE FENCE FOR THE GANG. The property which the boys took from Mr. Redgrave’s house they gave to Oscar Munkel, a brother of Charles. Oscar had a room, or pretended to have, at No. 51>£ Thompson street, New York, a building inhabited entirely by thieves and immoral women. A Hebrew is ac customed to visit this house each day and buy from the thieves the product of the labors of the night before. His morning salutation, according to the police, is:— "Veil, vot did you get lasht nicht?” This Hebrew then sells the goods to a professional fences, and it is often a diffi cult thing to trace the property which has passed through his hands. To this fence it is said Oscar Munkel sold the proceeds of the boys’ robberies. Policemen Kelly and McWally, however, went to New York yesterday and succeeded in recover ing the greater portion of the property stolen from Mr. Redgrave. A K. T. SWORD IN A MATTRESS. The Knight Templar sword was found between the mattresses on the bed in the room of Kitty Cook, a young woman friend of Oscar Munkel’s, who lived in the Thompson street house. Detective Dalton yesterday afternoon arrested Oscar on Hudson street and he was committed for trial as an accessory. He is employed as a helper on one of the wagons of the New Jersey Ice Company. The police say that the reason the boys wanted to shield Munkel was that they might keep the Redgrave robbery quiet and receive their share of the proceeds. In addition to these robberies the boys confessed that they robbed Auchmutty’s confectionery store, near Garrison & Coles' hardware store, and the saloon of Commissioner Kelly, at Newark avenue and Grove street. The boy who gave his name as Jones is said to have given a false name and to 1 be the son of wealthy parents. He was carefully brought up and educated at Seton Hall College. He, however, evinced a dispositions seek disreputable company, and, in spite of all his friends could do, 1 became a criminal on a small scale. 1 He seems to feel his position more keenly than the other boys, and is looked upon by them as the one who gave the police the most information. The boys 1 were formally committed for trial this 1 morning by Justice Stilsing. “DE FADERS” FADING. A Gang of Little Hoodlums Whose Specialty Is Highway Hobbery. It isn’t everybody who knows what “de i Faders” is, but the little fellow who rune * afoul of them with a watch chain ; dangling from his blazer shirt, or errand money clutched in his i fist, or a bundle of Jersey CiTr Newses under his arm, | is apt to find out in a twinkling that they [ are a gang of young but daring highway men who hide themselves among the newsboys in the lower part of the city. A little fellow, so full of misery that i he was trying to shove his knuckles into ’ his skull through his eyes, came blubber . iug into The Jersey City News office yesterday afternoon. 1 "What’s the matter 'with you?” asked i one of the hands. ; “Dey stole all me Journals,” sobbed the i boy. "Who stole all your Journalst” “Why, de Faders.” i It didn’t takeTHENEWs manlongtofind > out who “de Faders” were, and with a bundle of Newses under his arm he started down to look for the particular "Fader” that had robbed this particular > victim. The sobbing boy pointed out a blackeyed 1 bov in the throng of newsboys at the ferry ! gates. The News mun nabbed him, and i this morning Police Justice Stilsing held him for trial. : The boy was Gustav Lehlbach. His [ father was a well to do barber till a few ' years ago, his wife somehow got in a p blaze. He was suspected of having set lire to her.
