€it LAST EDITION. ï TOL. JL NO. 163. JERSEY CITY. MONDAY. SEP L'EMBER 9, 1889 PRICE TWO CENTS IN REPUBLICAN BASIS. Jimmy Young's Aspirations May Stir Up the Third District. FOUR TICKETS IN THE FIfiST àpathy in the Fifth, with i'ome Signs of Life Detected in the Majah. I The primaries for the election of dele gates to the Republican State Convention next week are to be held throughout the county next Thursday. Placid and serene as the outlook in the Third district appears, there is a bubbling and boiling beneath the surface that bids fair to cause some trouble. It is all due to the desire of Jimmy Young to succeed General John Ramsey as State Commit teeman. The General had made it known that he was not α candidate for re-election, or Jimmy, irrepressible as he is, would never have such aspirations. Ex-Corporation Attorney Seymour has for some years been casting longing glances at this honorable position, and he lias determined that he, and not Mr. Young, shall be State Treasurer TotTey's colleague, for there are two committeemen from each Congressional district. To acpomplish his purpose Mr. Young has succeeded in persuading the John Watt Association, a few republicans who obey Mr. Watt's slightest command, to back him. Among the members of this association is Alderman Marinus, who is also vice president of the Third District Republican Association. Colonel Samuel D. Dickinson is the president, but since he has been appointed Postmaster he has held himself aloof from active participa tion in politics, and by so doing has per mitted Marinus to run the association in the interest of the John Watt Association and Jimmy Young. JL Juuxivr 1J. fl/Λ χυυχιυ-. A few nights ago, in obedience to a call issued by Alderman Marinas, the Repub lican Association met—or rather the John "Watt portion of it—to arrange for the primaries to elect delegates to the Guber natorial convention. There was no op position to the programme arranged by the John Watts faction and Jimmy Young, and it was decided that the Third district should give seven delegates for Prank McGowan and us many as possible for Mr. Young. When the old stagers, who have carried this district in their pockets for many years, learned this, they made a kick and it was a vigorous one. They favor E. iiurd Grubb, of Philadelphia for the nomi nation, and most decidedly object to Mr. Young for State Committeeman. Ex Judge Seymour also objects and his hand is already felt in the tight. In conversa tion with oup of the recognized leaders of the Republican party today he told me that, although General Grubb is the pref erence of the majority in the district, the delegates elected will not be pledged to any one, unless it may be those that Watt, Marinus and Young have elected, and thev will, no doubt, be McGowan men. APATHY IN THE FIFTH DISTRICT. So little hope have the Republicans in tlie Fifth district, no matter who may be the Gubernatorial candidate this fall, that they are lu a state of apathy. It is many years since this has happened, and politically the district is as quiet as η cler gyman's vacation. It is ctuiou.s to see that phenomenal kicker, Frank O. Cole, content with filling prescriptions at his store and Tax Commis sioner David W. Lawrence quietly at tending to the duties of his office without uttering a word about politics. Not the slightest interest have they ex pressed concerning delegates to the Gubernatorial Convention, and appar ently they do not care who goes. Their old enemies, Sheriff Toffey, Charlie Laws, Joe Locke, etc., etc., are equally without interest. When the primaries are held the delegates elected will go to the convention unpledged to any one—if they can get delegates to go at all. The meeting of the District Club was held in a small room in the rear of Smith's office, a few nights ago, to ar range for this, but ;the meeting was at tended by very few. So little interest was shown in the matter that it was sug gested that the District Convention take place in this small room instead of hiring a hall for live dollars, and it was only through the earnest urgency of Freeholder Nelson that the com mittee consented to engage a hall NOBODY WANTS TO GO. The Freeholder told me that nobody wants to go to Trenton as a delegate and that almost any one may who desires to. He declined the honor, but said that if no one else could go from his precinct he would sacrifice his time. This appeared to be the general feeling of all the men who heretofore have always been anxious to go. It is rumored that this quiet does not suit Major Ζ. K. Pangborn, aud that he intends to be a delegate if permitted. Should ho so announce himself it may have the effect Jof enlivening matters, for many will be but too glad to sit on him. FOUU TICKETS IN THE FIIiST. •'Hot as cleetiou" is an old saying, par ticularly applicable to the tight for dele gates to the State Convention going on among the Republicans of the First dis trict. There will be four tickets in the field. One is run by William D. Ives and headed by John Hreunau, ex-President of the Board of Fire Commissioners, and with Horace H. Farrier, A. B. Casey, Captain John Graham and James McGarr for company. A second is the Brlen ticket, the most prominent name on it being that of Gen eral John Ramsay. The two other tickets in the field are Ι,ηη,ΙαΗ 1 WHH Mnilly. General Ramsay's name is ou both of these tickets ami he probably will be elected. This fight, although there are four tickets in the field, Is really a fight v, between William 1). lyes on one side and ) General Ramsay and Brien on the other. General Ramsay is a warm supporter of General Grubb, and Ives is a McGowan man. THE ALLEGED JEFFEKSONIANS. They Make Plane for Their Trenton Trip, and Discard the Band. The "Jeflfersonian" delegates met at Roche's Hall yesterday afternoon and completed arrangements for their first an nual excursion to Trenton. Nearly one hundred of them were present. Mr. Noelkc was somewhere else. I sent in a request to be admitted, and ι waited iu great suspense for the answer. "Fire him out! Fire him out!" yelled j several voices within. I cannot say whether these pleasant remarks referred to me or Prof. Hoggs, who was waiting to learn the fate of his proposition to furnish ι the l)ig band which somebody had ' said ι would accompany the pleasure party to i Trenton, and who with charming im- j » partiality had already supplied one of his ι bands to the regulars. 1 Anyhow the doors were not opened till the meeting adjourned. I then ap proached Secretary John H. Cronau and asked him if any business had been tran- 1 sacted of special importance. ι 'No," he very courteously replied. ' "Nothing beyond completing the final ar- i rangements for the trip to Treuton. j Some of the delegates will leave tomorrow night. Others will not leave before Tuesday morning." "I presume you'll go to Trenton under a breeze. Going to take a band along?" "Oh, no; It isn't necessary. We'll make noise enough. Ex-Senator Kabe, who has been elected chairman of our delegation, will present our claims, and he'li do it in first class style, too." "Was the subject broached this after noon as to what course will bo pursued in case you are not recognized in the conven tion "Oh, no. We didn't meet for that pur pose." "Will the entire new faction support Abbett if their delegates are sat upon in the convention?" "We are all Abbett men. We consider him as much our candidate as the old faction's. We have not decided yet what we will do if we are not recognized. It depends in a great measure upon the attitude of the delegates throughout the State toward us." "Will you put your own local candi dates in the fieldf" "i can't tell you just now. Walt till we return from the convention. You'll know all about it in a few days." Ex-Judge Kankin voiced Mr. Cronan's sentiments so far as State matters are con cerned. But in response to my enquiries regarding the local contest, he said:—"We shall most assuredly have our own local candidates." When I approached Mr. Kern he looked at me for a tew moments and said:—"Are you looking for information here?" "Yes, sir. ' "Well, you reported our primary in the Fourth so correctly I don't think you need to ask any questions." I thanked Mr. Kern for the compliment, and am yet wondering if he was speaking ironically. The abrupt manner in which he left me, however, almost convinces me that Hilly has grown sarcastic since last we met by the stile. In vain I tried to ascertain delinitely if the new faction would bolt the regular Democratic nomi nees. "We are ths party; and we will have our own candidates," seemed to bo the prevailing sentiment. But as fast as I buttonholed one delegate another would come up and march him off. BALTIMORE'S FESTAL DAI. Celebration of the Notable Local Fventa of the War of 1812. R Λ ΐ 'Γ Τ Mil!" W M il Spnt Q —Tïlft commemoration of the stirring events at Baltimore in connection witli the War of 1812 which have their seventy-fifth anni versary during this week begins today with the opening of the Maryland Expo sition at Pimlico under the auspices of the Maryland Exposition Association and will continue until Saturday niifht. Never before has Baltimore presented so beautiful a picture. She is dressed in her Sunday best from crown to toe, and people in tens of thousands till her streets. Home folk are strangers. Bal timore st reet is a perfect maze in the ex tent and variety of its decoration. Tonight the streets are to be made re splendent with thousands of electric lights. There is no room for business today—it is relegated to the rear and patriotism has taken its place. The air is illled with music, the strains of "Dixie" are ap plauded and cheered and "Yankee Doo dle" meets with a warm reception, but "The Star Spangled Banner," the na tional hymn, which had its inspiration in "the rocket's red glare" at old Fort Mc Henry seventy-five years ago, simply car ries the multitude off their feet. Two hundred and eight stands, seating 25,000 people, have been erected on Broadway, Baltimore street, Eutaw street and Madi son avenue, over which route the various processions during the week will move. Notwithstanding a cloudy, threatening early morning the day broke fresh and fair. The air is cool and bracing and there is every promise that the festivities of the day will not be marred by unfavor able weather. The opening day is "graced with the presence" of President Harrison, Secretary of War Proctor, Postmaster General Wanamaker, Gover nor Biggs, of Delaware; Governor Jack son, and ex-Governor Philip Francis Thomas, of Maryland. The last named is the only surviving member of the Thirty sixth Congress, excepting Henry Watter son's father. The committee who waited upon him urged the President to come on the 12th, when the great sham battle of North Point will occur at Pimlico, but he expressed a preference to see the great industrial and trades display today. TO RESTRAIN THE SHERIFF. The Chancellor Asked to Stop the Sale of Mr. Bishoft**» Property. Ex-Mayor Collins applied to Chancellor McGill this morning for an order to re strain the Sheriff from selling property said to belong to Frederick Bishoff under a decree for deficiency. In 1875 Charles Roux foreclosed a mort gage against Bishoff, and the property was duly sold by the Sheriff, but did not bring the amount of the mortgage. Mr! Coudert, as the repre sentative of Koux, hearing that Bishoff had acquired property after a lapse of fourteen years comes forward and attempts to have that property sold in order to obtain the deficiency. Mr. Collins claimed that in the sub poena in the foreclosure sent it was not stated that a decree of deficiency would be asked for, as the law there required. I'he Chancellor granted a stay and will bear the motion at length on Monday. THE MEADOWS MURDER. Coroner lirackner Thinks that There Is a mistake as to the Victim. Coroner Brackner says the body of the man murdered in the East Newark meadows had not been identified np to the time he and Dr. Converse left, near mid night. Ho does not believe the morning paper3 hud the correct name. He thinks the LLttlX IDUll nUWlUliUiCiiCHt οιυ »r . J.UC UUUJ was found between eight and nine /clock in the morning, and the County Physician was not notified until after six /clock in the evening. The Coroner was ordered to empanel a jury, which will view the body at five /clock this afternoon. The inquest will be postponed for a week in order to allow the police to thor oughly work up the case. Hackejisack'g Kick* Vice Chancellor Pitney listened to the irgnment this morning in the case of the State of New Jersey on the relation if the Board of Health of Hackensack igainst the Hoard of Chosen Freeholders >f the County of Bergen. The relators seek to restrain the Free îolders from emptying the refuse from Jourt House and County Jail of Bergen nto the Haskensack Creek. The arjju nent was still on at recess. Fell from a Truck. William Cummings, of No. 20 Tuers ivenue, fell from a truck which he was Iriving through Yarick street this morn· ng. The wheel passed over his right rm, breaking it near the elbow, and he eceived a severe scalp wound. He was aken home in an ambulance. Two New Horse Cars* The two new horse cars, which have ieen promised so long, made their appear nce this morning on the F.rie street line. ,'hey are built in the latest style, with all mprovements, are most attractive in ap- 1 eurance and comfortable to ride in. ι AFTER FIVE YEARS'WORK PASTOR ELLISON REVIEW8 THE PROGRESS Of HIS CHURCH. How the Debt Was Lifted—Λ Glance at the New Home of the Sunday School —Three Lessons Drawn from the Va cation Season. The Rev. D. J. Ellison celebrated the fifth anniversary of his call to the pastor, ate of the Bergen Baptist Church yester day. In the morning he preached an an niversary sermon from the text:—" And Caleb stilled the people before Moses and said, 'Let us go up at once and possess lt> for we are well able to overcome it.' " These were the words with which Caleb revived the courage of the children of Israel after the spies had returned saying that the promised land was peopled by giants. Tlie Rev. Mr. Ellison showed that the difference of opinion among the Israelites at that moment was typical of the mental attitude which any" body of men take toward any cause. There are always three classes:—The dyspeptics, who are nothing but hindrance anil are like the Hebrew spies who returned and cried "Giants;" those who see'the hindrances, but who, like Caleb, see the resources and victory; and the optimists, who see nothing but victory. The last cluss was strongly condemned by the preacher, who said that he had all three classes in hl3 church. A GRATIFYING ItEVIEW. Mr. Ellison then turned his attention to a review of his Ave years pastorate. He came to the church a young man from the seminary. At that time the church was laboring under a debt of f20,000. The first year they had a revival and seventy-live were adtled to the church. Ια the follow ing spring he was taken sick and sent to Europe by his congregation. When he returned he attacked the debt, and on January 13 the church had wiped it all out and celebrated a jubilee. Then, on June 9, *3,000 was raised for the build ing of an addition to the church. During the live years Mr. Ellison has received into Ills church 175 persons by baptism and 150 by letter. THE NEW SUNDAY SCHOOL BUILDING. The fine large addition to the church wliicii was buiit during the summer for the accomodation of the Sunday school was formally opened. The room is large and airy, and will accomodate 550. An interesting feature of the room is the iron girder which runs across the ceiling near the pulpit aud_ the unv uwu ^υουο η iiiv-u ouu^ui u il. iiiicc years ago, when the addition was first proposed, Deacon Miller gave the posts and girders. The scheme, however, was abandoned, and they were consigned to the yard of the church. This summer, when it was determined to complete the addition, the posts and girder were dug up in the yard, where they had lain so long that they were almost covered with the soil. VACATION LESSONS. In the evening Mr. Ellison preached a sermon on vacation lessons. The first of these lessons was that God is everywhere; the second that God's care is over all his creatures; and the third that if any had sustained loss it did not prove that God was not with them, since we obtain our greatest joys from our sorrows. WBEUAVVKRN'S iNEW SCHOOL· It Will Be Built and Ready for Occu pancy in November. Weehawken is to have a new school house at last. The efforts of The Jersey City News to awakeu the people of the town to the danger that threatened their children if they were compelled to attend school in the miserable old shed that lias been a blot on Weehawken for years have at last been crowned with success. Mayor Simon Kelly was oue of the first to see the danger and the first to try and remedy it. He called a mass meeting of the citizens, suggested sites, and asked for an appro priation. That was last May, and tlien the question died out until Mayor Simon found that it was absolutely necessary for him to take immediate action. He selected two lots facing on the Boulevard, about ISO feet north of Nine teenth street. The laud was bought fiom the Hoboken Land Improvement Com pany for a reasonable sum. Architect Golde, of Hoboken, drew the plans, and ground will be broken at once. The school house will be a two-story brick building. The first floor will be de voted to a hall or assembly room; the second floor will be divided into class rooms. The school when finished will accom modate from two hundred to three hun dred children. Mayor Kelly is delighted with the plans, and says that the build ing will be one of the finest school houses in the county. He also complimented The Jersey City News upon its energy in furthering the project. The school will be ready for the chil dren to occupy it in the early part of November. SUNSET COX DYING. All Hope of Saving the Famous New Yorker's Lite Abandoned. Congressman S. S. Cox is dying of ma larial fever at his residence, No. IS East Twelfth street, New York. Six physi cians, including Dr. Fordyce Barker and Dr. Stanton, of Washington, were in con sultation over his case. At noon all hope of recovery was given up. His wife was prostrated with grief. Mr. Cox returned several weeks ago from lecturing tour in Dakota and Washing ton Territory in his usual good health. Two weeks ago he went to Washington in the interest of one of his constituents, and caught cold, which was followed by malarial fever. Mr. Cox's physicians thinks he can hardly live through the day. The Men Are Winning. By Cable to the United Press, London, Sept. 9, 1880.—Several wharf ingers, in addition to those conceding the demands of the strikers on Saturday, announced this morning that they have decided to accept the terms of the men.

Stole a Cab Just for Fuu. John Hanks and John Harrison, of No· 15 Henderson street, were arraigued be ore Justice Stilsing this morning for larceny. Last evening, Henry Mclntyre, who lives in the same honsu with the men, hired a cab at the Hobokeu ferry to take him home. When he arrived at the house he invited Edward Keilly, the cab driver, to come in. While Reilly was in the house Hanks and Harrison jumped upon the cab and drove off. When Keilly missed the cab he complained to the police, and Policeman Donavan caught the men with the cab. They said that they only took the vehicle for fun, and as no one made a complaint against them they were discharged. MRS. HELLMAN'8 DIVORCE A Voting Jerwey City Woman Charges lier Huebuud with Cruel Treatment. Lottie M. Hellman, a young married woman, who has not found the married ftate all she expected, has commenced eult in the New York Supreme Court against her husband, Henry Hellman, for separation. Lottie will not be twenty one years of age till the 13th of next month, and her father, James M. Meyer, of No. 187 Sherman avenue, Jersey city lias been appointed her guardian ad litem. Mr. Hellman is manager of the Jen netle Silk Works at College Point, and has a salary, the wife says, of 835 a week, besides an important Interest in the busi ness, so that ne is well off ilnanciaUy. They were married in New York on September 19, 1887, when the wife was not nineteen years of age. It is said to have been a love match, and Lottie seems to have believed that the love could never grow cool. Now, scarcely two years alter the marriage, she complains that her husband has treated her so cru elly that it is impossible for her any longer to live with him. On May 18 last, she says, he struck her in the face with his hand and called her vile names. On May 19 he repeated such conduct. She is a high-spirited young woman, and felt keenly hurt by these in dignities. A short time age, she says, he abandoned her, without leaving her any means of support, and she had to take refuge with friends, on whose charity she is now depending for her mainten ance. When she lias osked her husband for money for the necessaries of life, she state?., his invariable reply has been that she should go among her friends and raise what she wanted, and that if she could not procure money in that way she should obtain a situation and earn her own living. She adds that he furthermore threat ened if she dared to institute a suit against him, to make an assignment of all his iironertv and business interests. and she might then do her utmost; she would never get α penny from him. Mr. Hellman denies his wife's allega tions of ill-treatment, or that she has any just cause of complaint. There are no children of the marriage. THE COMPLAINANT WAS DRUNK * And John McMalion'g Case Was Posi) poned Till Lovln Sobers Up. John McMahon, aged twenty-one years, was arraigned before Justice Stilsing this morning upon a charge of larceny. John Levin, a one armed, under sized man. who is employed as a watchman at Cleary's grocery store, at Grove and Eleventh streets, was the complainant. When his name was called by the Jus tice, he called out;—"Here, sir," and with considerable difficulty lifted himself into the witness chair. Ile then started off at a rambling rate:—"On or about twelve o'clock this young man kim along wid de skates on." He reached this point when the Court interrupted him and ordered him locked up for drunkenness. Young McMahon said that he came along Grove street, as stated by Levin, when he was attacked by a bull dog which Levin had with him. He picked up a stone to protect himself from the dog, when Levin pulled out a pistol and arrested him. The case was adjourned until tomor row in order to enable him to sober up. THE LONE FISHERMAN. His Body Is Found In the Water by His Crab Net. At nine o'clock yesterday morning Joseph Barnes found the body of a man floating off the foot of Chapel street Greenville. In his pockets were found S3 in money,a red wallet, a pocket knife and a card, on which was written "Dear Grandpa, thanks for the cane,''and signed "Lewis Edward Alberbanell." Hé was ap parently sixty years old and wore a black striped alpaca coat, grey trousers and Congress gaiters. When taken from the water a crab net was grasped tightly in his hand. Late last night the body was identified as that of Kudolph Alberbarnell, of No. 241 Grove street, this city. He often fished alone near where he was found drowned. One of a Growler-Working Gang. John Sheridan, of Twelfth street, was efore Justice Stilsing this morning for assault and battery. David Jones, of No· 407 Henderson street, testified that he came out of his house last night when one of a crowd jumped upon him with the cry, "That's one of them," and gave him a beating. He could not identify Sherry as his assailant. Policeman Smith said that Sherry ran away when he approached a crowd in that neighborhood, and that he is one of the growler-working gang which makes that neighborhood hideous. He was lined $5 C'orrlgnn's Mean ltuse. James Corrigan, aged twenty-nine years, a truck driver, who said that he lived in Hoboken, was arraigned before Justice Stilsing this morning upon a chnrge of assault and battery.

Rapid Advance in Real Estate Price»— Home New Building» That Are Being Pat Up There and Who Are Building Them. The great activity in real estate circles in this city is an indication that every branch of trade and business will be active during the coming season. The increase in new buildings this year over previous years is unprecedented, espe cially on the Hill, where people from the lower portion of Jersey City, Harlem, New York and Brooklyn have been flocking in great numbers. John N. Bruns,the real estate dealer, of Ocean avenue, talked a day or two ago to me about the growth of Greenville and that section of South Bergen bordering on it. "There is as great activity hereabouts as anywhere," he said. "Just think of it, lots whir.h could have been bought two or three years ago on Ocean avenue or Arlington avenue for $500 are now bring ing from $1,100 to $1,500. Three years ago I could not obtain $800 for a lot on Ar lington avenue—I sold many for $000 and $"00—but today I have no desirable lots for less than $1,100 or $1,200. What is the reason for this? The only reason I know is that there is such α demand that owners will not sell for less than those prices—and why should they not? A person con live here in abso lute comfort, enjoy all the luxuries of life and be within thirty minutes from the New York City Hal! at small ex pense. We have the Arlington avenue, Jackson avenue, Claremont and Green ville stations on the Central Railroad, in addition to the horse cars. And then, too, mueh credit must be given the activity of many of our prominent citizens, and also our Building and Loan Associations. These are important and necessary fac tors in building up a city of this magni tude. I predict that live years more will completely revolutionize things here abouts. "In the district there are over three hun dred houses being erected at the present time, besides the enormous number finished during the year." The News' reporter then took a glance over the territory spoken-of by Mr. Bruns, and found that five Queon Anne houses are being built on Arlington avenue by Messrs. Murphy, Mervin and Duncanson, tn nnnt *Λ (VIA Ao/.k One Queen Anne, to cost S3,000, is just beginning to be built on Arlington avenue by John N.

That there will be a new bank in Green ville now seems a certainty. Several of the business men of the neighborhood have pledged themselves to subscribe to stock and many others have promised the committee that called on them their support. Ϊ. J. Delweiler, Bernard Brady and Dr. Finn, the gentlemen appointed à committee of three to visit the business men of Greenville, report that those whom they visited represented a business of over $1,000,000 per annum. So far, nearly 200 shares at $100 each, have been disposed of and the projectors are contldent that all the $100,000 capital stock will be sold before the bank build ing, at the corner of Ocean and Danforth avenues, is finished. The projectors pro pose to dispose of the stock among a great many people iu order to make tue bank popular among the retail tradesmen. In order to facilitate the sale of shares they have opened an office at Danforth avenue, where subscriptions will be received. Every share will be entitled to a vote in the formation of a Board of Directors, making the institution a People's Bank, the naine chosen by the projectors. D. W. Oliver and Henry Lembeck were ap pointed a committee to secure a charter. Some of those present spoke of a charter secured fifteen years ago for a bank in Grcanvilie. The charter was unearthed ana found to be for a savings bank. It therefore could not be used for the pro posed bank, which will handle commer cial paper. They will take steps to se cure a charter under the State banking laws. Another committee—John Morrell, Iteuben Simpson and John Schmolze— has been appointed to ascertain the first expense of vaults, oilice, furniture, etc. They will report at the next meeting on Friday eveninir. WAKKE.N STKKET BKIDtfE GANG. Justice Stilsing Metes Out Punishment to the Toushs Caught Saturday Nifht. The Warren street bridge gang, which was gathered in on Saturday night by Sergeant Kelly and Policemen T. Kelly, Devlin and Pendergast, was arraigned before Justice Stiising this morning. .Joseph Kelly, a resident of the neighbor hood, appeared against the men. He said that most of the men are continually lighting in the neighborhood and raising such a disturbance that the neighbors canuot sleep, and Mr. Kelly cannot rent his rooms. John Slatterly, alias "Bum" Morrissey, went to the penitentiary for ninety days as a vagrant. James Post was released under a suspended sentence and Thomas Kelly went to keep Morrissey company at Snake Hill. James McManus appeared to be a respectable sort of young man and was paroled. James Connolly was paroled until tomorrow. Frank Clark, who attempted to inter fere with the officers while making the ar rests, and who claimed that he was not one of the gang, and was so demonstra tive in the police station that it took three men to put him in the cell, was held un til tomorrow. John McManus and Jeremiah Kelly said that they had been "to de teater," and were on their way home when arrested. Kelly went to Snake Hill for ninety days, and McManus went to the City Prison for two days. Patrick Scanlan also went to the City Prison for two days. Tiie Will or Charte· M, Uellar. Courtland Palmer, Jr., applied to the Chancellor this morning to construe the will of Charles M. Kellar, of New York, who died in 1874 leaving valuable real estate in this State. The witnesses to the ivill did not sign it in the presence of the testator as required by law. Although the bill was admitted to probate in New York there is doubt whether it will pass title to real estate in this State. A friendly suit was brought to settle that point. The Chancellor reserved his de cision. AUSTRALIA AHEAD. Searle Outrows O'Connor for the World's Champion «hip. By Cable to the United Press. London. Eng., Sept. 9, 1889.—The scull ing race between Searle, of Anstralia who held the title, and O'Connor, of Can. ada, the champion of America, for the championship of the world, was rowed this morning over the Thames champion ship course, the Australian winning. Ί he wind blew in occasional squalls and ofT Surrey the water was slightly lumpy, but otherwise the conditions were excellent. The weather was perfectly clear. The betting started at 20 to 21 on Searle, yjhich was readily taken, and finally turned to 5 to 4 on O'Connor. Searle won the toss and took the Surrey side. The start was made by mutual con eent at twenty-three minutes past one o'clock. O'Connor had the better of his opponent in getting away, and led by half a length at the boathouse, to which point his time was 8.38. He started off at a terrific rate of speed, but shortly after ward caught a crab. Searle overtook him and gained the lead, rowing splendiy, but slackening his speed beyond Walden's. After this, Searle, apparently without effort, and rowing at twenty-nine strokes, gained half a length, which he gradually in creased. O'Connor looked anxiously over his shoulder to observe the distance be tween himself and the Australian. At Hammersmith Bridge, one and three-quarter miles from the start, Searle led by two lengths. O'Connor looked a trifle distressed. At Thornycraft both men appeared to be in good form, but a troublesome headwind was encountered in Chiswick Reach, which bothered O'Connor considerably, though it did not affect Searle, who was then three lengths ahead. From Cheswick Point the race was a procession. Searle crossed the line an easy winner by six lengths. His time was 22.42. O'Connor rowed splendidly throughout, but he seemed to be over trained, as after the first mile he tired very quickly. I lot h men kept to the course remarkably well. The attendance at the riverside was very large for a pro fessional race. The race excited more interest in sport ing circles here than any event for years. xuv ■_»*_ ι n j_i ucgou tcij onwiigy J il ιανυι of riearle, at one time reaching odds of 15 to 10, but O'Connor's stock went np until even money was staked. The amount of money waged wus enormous. Heavy purses were cabled from Canada and Australia to be staked for the friends of the respective champions, Spencers Brothers, of Australia, placing £10,000 on Searle. Both men were in splendid form. Searle weighed 1(53 pourds and O'Connor lt52, and their preliminary spurts on the river indicated that they were evenly matched in all respects. O'Connor was believed both by his par tisans and the friends of Searle to be starting under a handicap. He was not accustomed to start by mutual consent, but bus been used to forging ahead at a pistol shot or by word from the referee, this in many cases enabling him to hold the lead to the finish. Besides, O'Connor is unused to tidewater as Searle is. The tide today was nearly slack, but it still ran at the rate of three miles an hour, enough to affect the rowing of one accustomed to still water. "TOM THE PEEPER." A. Six-Foot Stranger Who Invaded Two Famrupo Bedrooms. About two o'clock yesterday morning Mrs. John Slate, of Grand street and Avenue E, Pamrapo, was awakened by someone pulling the cover from off her bead.

He approached him md asked if the stranger had seen any jue running down the street. "No one but yourself." was the reply.

TIE CITY^ STREETS. Discussion Drags Along Before the Commis sioners. LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE. Contracts and Routine Business Considered by the Board· The Street and Water Commissioner· had their regular meeting this morning. It was a long and busy one, and before the adjournment nearly all the spectators who were present when the meeting opened had left the lobby. PROTESTS AGAINST AN ASSESSMENT. The Commissioners first gave their at tention to protests against the confirma tion of final assessments for the Lincoln street sewer improvement. There were two communications containing protests against the assessments. The first was sent by Herbert Stout as attorney for James Costello and other residents. It contained several objections. They were that the proper legal notice of filing the report of the assessment, and calling for a hearing of objections had not been given ;that the assessments were not made proportionately to the benefit derived by the residents along the line of the Im provement, and that the Commissioners had failed to give a description of the streets where property would be assessed as required by law. The communication was referred. The second communication was signed by A. B. Vafey and several others. They claim that the people on Milton avenue and other places connecting with the sewer do not derive the same benefits as those whose property is along the line of the improvement, and for that reason the assessments are not proportionate. This communication shared the same fate aj the first one. The Board gave notice of hearing on the improvement of Morris and Halliday streets and of Willow court. A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION. The quality of the materials furnished by the contractors, Henry & McGibney, in the Griffith street improvement, was brought into question by a communica tion signed by several residents. The communication stated that the materials used by the contractors were not of the same quality as called for by the specift cations. President Somers knew something about the matter, and he took the floor. H U11V UllTlUf^ UUWUgU UliU ith street one day he noticed that the ma terial was not the same as called for. A quantity of the stone, he said, had beeu rejected. He insisted that none of the rejected material had been laid, and what the contractors have already laid was of good quality. The pavers employed on the streets now receive $3.50 per day. The union rate is $4, and the men want an increase to the union rate. The demand was made to day in the following communication:— To the Honorable Board of Street and Water Commissioners:— At a meeting ot the Parera' Union of this city I was authorized to communicate with your honorable Board to increase the pavers' wages, who are members of the union, to $4 per day, as it is the regular wages paid in all other cities, and there are none but regular pavers allowed in our union. Hoping you will act upon this peti tion, I remain, yours, D*nkis Byrnes, Secretary. The petition had fourteen other name3 attached, and those men constitute the union. The netition was referred. hadn't karnkd his pat. Gustav Schumann and others sent a protest against the payment of Thomas Campbell's bill for $108, being for thirty six days' work on the Zabriskie street im provement. They claim that Campbell had not done the work. Daniel Blair, of No. 81 Morris street, complained that his flagstones had been broken by the con tractor, who had dumped pavement block upon them, and lie desires the Board to givekhim new flagstones. Proposals were received for furnishing 600 lengths of six-inch water pipe. There were four bidders. Thomas J. McKenna's bid of $26.35 was the lowest, but he did not get the contract. It was given to John Fox, whose bid was $26.30. It waa given to £ ox on the ground that he was a regular dealer and McKenna was only au agent, and the Commissioners deemed it for the best interesta of the city to give it to Fox. Frank P. Mitchell owns property on Cottage place. He claims that during heavy storms the water flows Into his lots and that they have been greatly damaged. He wants the Commissioners to pay for the damage he has sustained and wants the street raised. Bids were received for the improvement of Cook and Essex streets. The Chief Engineer estimated the cost of grading Montgomery street between Bergen ana West Side avenues at $6,969.50. Charge Their Bartender with Theft. Joseph Hippe was arraigned before Justice Stilsing this morning upon a charge of larceny. He was emploved by Frank Chace, a saloonkeeper, of No. 779 Ocean avenue, as a bartender. Yesterday Chace's wife found fault with his work and discharged him. When he went away it is alleged that he took with him a bag containing $20 in silver, which bo longed to Chace. As he had no friends and" no place to go, he spent the greater part of yesterday in riding on the orse cars. This catne to Chace's ears, and this morning he started out to look for Hippe and found him on Newark ave nue. Captain McKaig arrested him, and he will have an examination tomorrow. Afraid, of tit θ Jûlixlr. London, Sept. 9, 1888.—The petition to be presented to Parliament for the inter diction of the Brown-Sequard experi ments in England is obtaining thousands of signatures. Aside from the natural objection of the true Briton to any novelty, especially a French novelty, all sorts of evils, even to the destruction of civilization and humanity, are prophesied from the introduction of such an immoral, irreligious and monstrous innovation. Maggie Gutihmire Buried. Little Maggie Cushmire, the seven year-old child whose head was severed from her body on Friday last by the Long Branch express at the Centreville railroad crossing, was buried from her home at No. 205 Avenue E, Bergen Point, yesterday afternoon.
