A DECORATED ODDFELLOW
THE VETERAN'S MEDAL CON
EEltKED ON JOHN DUNHAM.
Interesting Ceremonies Attend the I>ec
oration — Awaiting Mrs. Hamilton')
Arrival at Trenton—A Poisoning Cas«
in Trenton.
Odd Fellows crowded the Women'i
Christian Temperance Union's Hall it
Newark last evening. They had gatherec
to honor their veteran brother and cheva
lier, John Dunham.
Chairs were placed in rows on cach sid<
of the hall, leaving a vacant space in th<
middle. As the evening went on a mys.
terious aspect was thrown over the pro
ceeding by the production of a small
square table, which was placed about
midway in the hall. On the table wai
put a white basin full of clean water and
underneath was an immaculate liner
towel. Soon a large colored rug was pro
duced and spread on the floor between
the table and a platform erected in front
and a checkered cushion was laid on the
rug. Then two chairs were brought out
and placed side by side in front of the
table.
The occasion was the first of its kind
that was ever celebrated by the Odd
Fellows in this State. The veteran
jewel, with which Mr. Dunham was to
be decorated, was instituted last year at
the sovereign grand lodge, to be con
ferred on such Odd Fellov. ί as have spent
twenty-five years in the order. Mr. Dun
ham has been connected with the order
for forty-six years.
The hall was thronged with prominent
Odd Fellows, uniformed in their bright
regalia. Many wore from neighboring
cities, and among those present were
noticed Grand Patriarch Levi Holcum,
Grand Secretary Lewis Parker, Grand
Master Frank Jennings, First Grand
Representative Miller, Grand Senior
Doane, Captain Amos B. Pierce, Grand
Conductor William Allen, ex-Grand
Patriarch Henry D. Clausen, Lieutenant
Colonel George Stephens, Major Chap!
man. Brigadier General Nutt and Colonel
Edgar Taylor.
At about eight o'clock the officers of
the various lodges took places on the plat
form and Captain A. B. Pierce said that
the exercises would begin, and a musical
programme would be rendered. A violin
solo by Master Willie Faitoute, accom
panied on the piano by his mother, called
forth repeated applause. Miss E. L.
Birdsall sang in a beautiful voice, "Light
of My Soul. ' Henry W. Williams fol
.lowed with a recitation, " ine itinerant
Preacher," and the programme was
brought to a close by a recitation by
Martha Jennie.
The Canton Lodge then formed in the
hall and performed a highly creditable
drill. At the time when two lines were
drawn facing each other with swords
crossed, forming an arch, Mr. Dunham,
accompanied by Henry T. Clausen,
■walked under the swords and stood before
the table. Mr. Clausen, addressing his
comrade, said:—"We will now wash our
hands in pure water approved by the
Newark Aqueduct Board." They did it
and dried their hands on the linen towel
and then occupied the chair before the
"table. Grand Secretary Lewis Parker
addressed Mr. Dunham in well chosen
■words. He explained the import of the
jewel and spoke of the veteran's charac
ter, recommending him as an example
for all true Odd Fellows to imitate. Γη
conclusion he congratulated the chevalier
and wished him long life. Two young
ladies, one dressed in red and the other in
white, strewed roses from Mr. Dunham's
Position to the rug. At his companion's
eckon Mr. Dunham knelt on the cush
ion, and Mr. Parker, accompanied by a
pretty little girl dressed in white, de
scended und stood before him. Mr.
Parker said that he did not consider his
hands pure enough to decorate the vet
eran and he had asked the little girl tq
perform the duty, which she did.
The veteran jewel is a gold medal hand
somely decorated, with a cross bar and
pennant. On it are inscribed the words
"Veteran Jewel. Presented to John Dun
ham by Canton Lodge, Newark, No. 1,
Patriarchs Militant.'"
After the decoration Mr. Dunham was
the recipient of congratulations from all
the Odd Fellows present.
Trenton Awaiting Aire. Hamilton.
There was a crowd of several hundred
persons about the entraace to the State
Prison at Trenton yesterday that waited
from ten o'clock in the morning until
long after noon to witness the arrival of
Mrs. Robert Ray Hamilton. She was ex
pected on the train that reaches Clinton
street at ten o'clock, but she did not ar
rive. The time of her coming is very un
certain. The Sheriff has fifteen days in
which to get her to the prison, and he said,
when at Trenton on Saturday with several
rlsoners, that Mrs. Hamilton had several
usiness matters that she wanted to at
tend to before she was put behind the
bars. She may come any day.
The crowd was very eager yesterday,
and went jostling and running several
times at false alarms of the looked for
woman's approach. A rumor at noon
had it that tlie woman was to be taken
in at the Second street gate, and the big
crowd of men, women and boys rushed
around there helter-skelter and waited
for half an hour iu vain. Just about
this time a man and woman approached
from Federal street to go to the prison,
and the crowd, thinking them the Sheriff
and the notorious Mrs. Hamilton, fol
lowed to the prison door, regarding the
cuupie vvuu open-moutneu wonuer.
Did She Foison Him?
On Friday last α mason named William
Goodwin, who was also known by several
other names, died at No. 250 North Feeder
street, Trenton. Dr. Wvckoff was sum
moned to attend him on Thursday by a
colored woman named Annie Elliot, alias
Annie Layton, at whoso house ho lived.
He was found by the physician to be in a
delirious state caused by alcoholism. Dr.
Wyckoff prescribed for him, and on going
the next day found him in a dying
condition. He subsequently gave a cer
tificate to the effect that the man had
died of intemperance, and he was buried
on Monday by Undertaker Murphy in the
Potters Field.
Since that time there have been rumors
of foul play. John Lake, a teamster,
living at No. 110 South Greene street, told
Coroner Bower yesterday that he had
lieard the Layton woman say that she had
a man she liked better than Goodwin,
and that she was going to get him out of
the way by putting poison in his coffee.
Lake's story was made before Prosecutor
Ο tOCK. ton.
THE STREET CLEANING.
How It I§ the City Hag to Pay a Year's
Money for Ten Months' Work.
The statement and opinion submitted
by Corporation Counsel Edwards to the
Board of Finance, summarized in yester
day's News, shows so clearly the methods
of the old Board of Works in dealing
with the street cleaning department, that
it is well worth reproducing in full. It is
as follows:—
Honorable Board of Finance
Sir:—As requested by you, I have Investigated
the legal status of claims heretofore passed by
the Board of Public Works (under the οία charter),
for removing ashes and garbage between Decem
ber 1,1888, and January 85, 1889. I find the fol
lowing facts on record:—In July, 1888, in the tax
levy an appropriation was made to the Board of
Public Works of $34,999.90 for cleaning the
streets and removing the ashes and garbage for
the fiscal year beginning December 1, 188b; the
then Board of Finance and Taxation added a
proviso that the work should be done under a
contract to be approved by that Board. On
.November 22, 18S8, the Board of Publie Works
received bids for this work from a number of
contractors, and on November 26, 18SH, awarded
the contract to John G. Dunn, the lowest bidder;
the resolution awarding the contract was then
forwarded to the Board of Finance and Taxation
for concurrence.
On December 3, 1888, Commissioner Tumulty,
chairman of the Committee on Streets and Sew
ers, reported that the present fiscal year having
already begun and the award made by this Board
for cleaning the streets and removing the ashes
and garbage not yet concurred in bv the Board
of Finanee and Taxation, it was found necessary
to take steps in the removal of ashes and gar
bage. and tuât the committee had engaged euHi
Turner «& Bennell,
!
EBTABIjISIXED 23 YEARS.
S3 & 25 NEWARK ATTENUE, J.C.
I cient horses to do the work at m cheap a price as
j possible.
This report was received, and, on motion, the
Committee on Streets and Sewers was given full
power to do the said work until the |execution of
the contract (page 130 of manual).
For some reason the Board of Finance refused
to concur in awarding the contract to Mr. Dunn.
Thereupon the Board of Public Works, on De
cember 10, readvertised for bids, which were re
ceived December 24, 1888, and on December 31,
1888, the contract was awarded to Henry Byrnes
by the Board of Public Works, and on January
10, 1889, this action was concurred in by the
Board of Finance and Taxation, and meanwhile
the Board of Public Works, through its Commit
tee on Streets and Sewers, caused the ashes and
garbage to be removed by days, work.
Thes contractor, Henry Byrne, signed the con
tract on January 25, 1889, and by direction of the
Board of Public Works proceeded to -carry out
! the provisions at once, although it was not offi
cially executed by the city until about the mid
I die of February, when it was sent to the Chief
I Engineer by Judge Blair, then corporation coun
sel, with a letter of explanation, which will be
found on page 186 of the journal of the Board of
Works for last year. The question now arises as
to the scope of Byrnes' contract and whether
the city can deduct from his bid the cost ol' re
moving the ashes and garbage from December
1 to January 25. The specifications on which
proposals were asked are headed as follows:—
"Specifications for sweeping, cleaning and re
moving all dirt, ashes and garbage from the
streets of Jersey City from date of contract to
December 1, 1889," while in the body thereof it
is provided thus: -"Ashes and garbage and rub
bish shall be collected and removed from all the
Btreets of Jersey Uty irom aaie 01 contract 10
the first day of December, 1889, twice in each and
every week."
The contract follows the specifications, and is
dated January 25, 1889; the consideration for
removing ashes and garbage is a large sum, six
teen thousand two hundred and fifty dollars for
the term. On the face of the papers, the con
tractor, Henry Byrnes, is entitled to receive the
whole of this sum for removing ashes and gar
bage from January 25 to December 1, 1889. lam
moreover informed by the Corporation Attorney
that Byrnes, at the time of signing the contract,
insisted upon this construction, and refused to
execute the contract until he had been assured
! of it by the then law officers of the city. The
1 Chief Engineer, in making up his estimate from
time to time, acted upon the advice of Judge
! Blair, as contained in his letter above referred
j to, and gave Byrnes certificates based upon the
: idea that as from January 25 to December 1,
1889, there were 3u3 days, Byrne was entitled to
part of the contract prices for each day as
it passed. Warrants based upon these estimates
have been paid without question.
I herewith enclose letter from Chief Engineer
showing the method in which these estimates
were made. I also enclose the original contract
with Byrnes, which should be returned to the
Comptroller. It would, therefore, seem clear
that no part of the cost of removing the ashes
and garbage from December 1, 1888, to January
25, 1889, can be deducted from Byrnes. I have
collected the claims presented for this extra
work and find them to be as follows:—
Henry Byrnes (use of horses and carts).
No. 48—Dec. 3 to Dec. 8 $315 00
No. 68—Dec. 10 to 19 472 50
No. 07—Dec. 20 to 29 472 50
No. 69—Dec. 31 to Jan. 9 472 50
No. 70—Jan. 10 to 19 472 50
No. 06- Jan. 21 to 20 315 00
Total $2,520 00
Horses and carts charged for at $3.50 per day,
including driver, all of which were passed by
the Board of Public Works, and are now in your
hands awaiting action. Miscellaneous bills for
horses and carts:—
No. 274, B. McGuinness $24
No. 275, John McCrea 12
No. 96, John Kilroy 12
No. 130, Mary Cummings 24
No. 58, Patrick Byrnes 24
( No. 104 Patrick Welch 12
ι No. 89, Thomas Harrington 9
No. 97, Michael Kilroy 0
$117
All for horses and carts at $3 per day, for
Dec. 8, 4 and 5.
Dec. 3 to Dec. 15, laborers loading carts
with ashes $306 00
Dec. 17 to Dec. 29, laborers loading carts
with ashes 286 00
Dec. 31 to Jan. 12, laborers loading carts
with ashes 338 00
Jan. 14 to Jan. 26, laborers loading carts
with ashes 358 00
$1,848 00
In above pay-rolls the foreman Mullery was
allowed $25 per week and the workmen $2 per
day. All the above claims were ordered paid by
: the Board of Public Works and now await your
I action. I herewith send you all the original bills
j and papers} for investigation, also the manual of
I the old Board of Public Works, with marked
references to everything pertaining to this sub
l iect. 1 am of the opinion that the above claims,
if found correct and reasonable, should be paid
' out of the unexpended balance of the appropria
| tion for 1888-9 for cleaning and removing garb
! age. A sufficient balance remains for this pur
! pose, as I am informed by the Comptroller. Of
; course I have not investigated as to the correct
ness or reasonableness of the claims themselves.
