Jimmy Young's Aspirations
May Stir Up the Third
àpathy in the Fifth, with i'ome
Signs of Life Detected in the
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
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.
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
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
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.
•'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
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
"Oh, no. We didn't meet for that pur
"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
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
"We are ths party; and we will have

Celebration of the Notable Local Fventa

the Maryland Exposition Association and

Never before has Baltimore presented
so beautiful a picture. She is dressed in
her Sunday best from crown to toe, and

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.
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.

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.
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 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.
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.

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
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

Eleventh streets, was the complainant.
When his name was called by the Jus

considerable difficulty lifted himself into

a rambling rate:—"On or about twelve

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

Rapid Advance in Real Estate Price»—
Home New Building» That Are Being
Pat Up There and Who Are Building
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
"In the district there are over three hun
dred houses being erected at the present
time, besides the enormous number
finished during the year."

over the territory spoken-of by Mr. Bruns,

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,

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
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
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.

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
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.
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. Supposing it was her husband, she
"Well, John, what are you doing out at
this hour?"
She repeated the question, and, receiv
ing no answer, turned, as she supposed,
to her husband. Sne perceived a tall
stranger at the side of the bed.
ï"or a moment she looked at him, and
then recovering hersîlf screamed for her
son. The intruder dashed down stairs
before the son could answer and was lost
in the darkness.
Half an hour later Mrs. Charles Russ,
who lives within two doors of Mrs. Slate,
was awakened by the covers being pulled
off her and some one pressing
on her breast. She also thought
it was her husband. She
looked up at him and saw a tall, dark
stranger standing over her. She screamed
for her husband, and the intruder ran out
of the back door.
In the meantime Mr. Russ had dressed,
iud, securing a description of the man,
started to look for him. He met a man
an Avenue D who answered his wife's
description. He approached him
md asked if the stranger had seen any
jue running down the street.
"No one but yourself." was the reply.
The fellow appeared to be a gentleman,

was the intruder. He therefore returned
home, and this morning notified the

Discussion Drags Along
Before the Commis
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.
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.
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
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
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,
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.

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. The house
was crowded with mourners.
The body was in a lit
tle white casket, and a band
of niching round the neck hid the cruel
cut. The casket was borne to the her.rsa
by four of the child's companions. The

was a member. Over twenty carriages
followed the remains to the Constable
