BONIFACE CHUBCH FAIR. Reunion of King's Sons and Daugh ters—The Y. M. C. A. Fair. Through tire energy of the Rev. John Krauz, the Centenary Methodist Episco pal Church on Pavonia avenue has been transformed into one of the prettiest churches in the city. The bare walls are now radiant with fresco decorations; the seats have beeu varnished and polished till they actually glisten; a new and ele gant ingrain carpet of Brussels design covers the entire floor, and a recess built immediately back of the pulpit rostrum, in which stands a new *25,000 Jardine church organ, of Gothic design, whose pipes are symphonies of gold, silver and bronze, is partially curtained off with wine colored plush hung on h brass rod span ning the entire front of the recess. On one side of the organ recess is the pastor's study; on the other a reception room. Extensive improvements have been made in the basement. A new in fant class room has bean built, connected with the main room by sliding glass doors. One would scarcely recognize the old Centenary Church, so great 1ms been the transformation. The cost of these ^.improvements approximates $4,500. "xnere w»a uut α ceui» ui iuo ucnnm j ιυ oegin with; but the energetic pastor, ufter obtaining permission of the trus tees to go ahead, accomplished his pur nose, and the very lirst hunday after fin ishing the work $4,700 was pledged by the congregation and its friends. XKW ORGAN. The elegant new organ, the cost of which is not included in the sum ex pended in decorations, was tested last night before α thorough auditorium. Mr. Edward G. Jardine, one of the makers, and his nephew, Mr. Edward D. Jardine, the sixteen-year-old organist of St John Baptist's Church, of New York city, demonstrated in a varied and highly in teresting programme the power and sweetness of its tone. Miss Kate Hilke, soprano; Mrs. Leonora Chapmàn, contralto, and Mr. D. Herbert Jelfèry, tenor, assisted the organist in making good music. In addition to a number of pretty solos and duets, these clever singers rendered Amore's "Padre Del Sommo," in a manner that called forth a most hearty outburst of applause. A MUSICAL THUNDERSTORM. Mr. Edward J. Jardine in testing the organ gave a representation of a thun aei-Biorm, wnicn wasprouauiy une 01 i/iie cleverest musical performances ever beard in Jersey City. The echoes of the shepherd's pipe from hill to hill, the in terruption ôf the peasant's dance by dis tant mutterings of thunder, the approach ~ oi-the storm, the moaning and rushing of wind, was au almost perfect imitation, and as to the storm ourst in all its viol ence, while the lights became dim, many turned to look at the windows to see if it ■were not they that were rattled by the wind, while others shrugged their shoul ders and actually shivered. The calm vhich followed the storm as the sun broke forth from the clouds, the singing of birds and the vesper hymn of the peas ants sung a thanksgiving for a safe deliv erance from the tempest, was equally a powerful imitation. Mr. H. E. Macomber, the regular or ganist, ulso delighted the audience with several selections. ST. BONIFACE CHURCH FAIR. Loti of Pretty Tilings for Sale and l'rnttr Glrle to Sell Them. The ladies of St. Boniface's Church last evening opened a fair in the hall adjoin ing the church.

He came in like a frightened deer and as fresh as a daisy. O'Day disappointed his admirers. He ivas certainly not in first class form. j The Kntertainment Committee of the t Wayne Athletic Club had a meeting last ι night and decided to Increase the com- ι mittee. 1 î \ MRS.

A bill for the preliminary proceedings in a divorce suit instituted by Mary Ban" non against her husband, George Bannon, the well-to-do trucker, of No. 145 Morris street, this city, has been filed with the clerk in the Chancery Court at Trenton. The application for divorce from bed and board will bo made to Chancellor McGill next Monday mornlne by Messrs. Bo we & Braden, counsel for the petitioner, and a petition for alimony pre sented. Bannon is a heavy-weight trucker of 200 pounds, a big six footer, and owns two large double houses on Morris street, a number of horses and trucks and does a thriving business. Ou the 12th of May. 1888, as a widower with nine children he married the peti tioner, who was a Widow bearing the nume of Smitn, with three children, who had been a life-long resident of this city. Immediately after the marriage cere mony he took hi* bride to his present home. No. 145 Morris street, where for a year or more the couple, surrounded by a dozen children, lived peaceably and hap pily enough. Some time in July, a year later, Mr. Bannon manifested a change of disposi tion toward his second wife. He became tyrannical, frequently abused and struck her and made home so unpleasant for her that she was obliged to seek refuge be neath the roof of a married daughter liv ing at No. 204 Bay street. He sought her here, begged forgiveness and entreated her to return home, where shortly^afterward his Blue Beard traits again Became manifest, and the ill treat ment resumed. In a druuken frenzy he beat his wife on one occasion, it is alleged, and on an other stripped her clothes from her back and left her in a half nude condition on the front stoop. According to the statements set forth in the petition he several times lifted lier bodily, and, swinging her around, struck her head against the wail inflicting pain ful injuries. Unable to bear his inhuman treatment Mrs. Bonnou was obliged to again leave home and has remained away since the first of October last. ouii xi'unoxiij» ω. ua-muiuuculI : Λ Tempting: Array of Clothing at Any .Price and on Your Offn Terms. It would seem that the opportunitie8 for obtaining clothing at exceptionally low prices were never better than at près" eut, judging from the overcrowded ad vertising columns of The News today. The array is almost startling iu its pro portions, while the prices quoted nearly take one's breath away. The Boston, clothiers and outfitters, en terprising and popular—always amone the leaders—present a display of clothing and outfitting covering the entire range of men's and boys' wearing apparel, with several special lines for ladies, making their announcement of interest to every member of the family. Those wishing new garments and not having the ready cash will And at Stern berg & Sherman's everything they re quire in mens' and boys' clothing and ladies' and misses' cloaks, jackets and suits on the most liberal terms bf credit. The approaching removal of Max Stadler & Co. from their old stand, cor ner of Grand street and Broadway, New York, forces them to dispose of their im mense stock at a sacriilce and buyers will receive the benefit of the situation in very low rates for standard goods. In keeping with the times, the re nownned London & Liverpool Clothing Company inaugurate α grand winter sale for whicli tney reduce the stock in every department of their establishment to one-half-price. m. ne scene ;it mat estaunsnmenL· on me Bowery tonight, Λνίΐΐ probably rival that οf two years ago when Ave thousand boys stopped all traffic on that great thoroughfare to get au overeoat free.

The Marshall & Ball Co. tickle the guessing propensities of the people by giving a statement of tho names and ligures ol guessers on the plurality of the successful candidate for Governor. The reliable quality of the clothing of this (lrm is well known, aud the fortunate juessers will have reason to be proud of sheir prizes. A HALL ûÎTrKCORDS. WHEN ? Superintendent Gannon Gets After the Contractor With Another Report. There would have been a meeting of :he Board of Freeholders yesterday if a juorum had been present when the Di rector called the Board to order. He said that inasmuch as but eight ne inbers were present no meeting could je held, and he regretted the fact, for it ivould have been the last business meeti ng ot the present Board. He told the members that he would call \ special meeting some day next week, rhe Board must then transact all busi less that has accrued, for the only other ;iiue it will come together is to simply tdopt minutes and adjourn sine die. Be ween this and the special meetiug ar rangement» for the annual official visit ;o Morris Plains Asylum will be made. James Gannon, County Superintend snt, was much displeased at the failure to procure a quorum, because he desired to mbinit this communication to the Gentlbmbx—I am a^din obliged to call your ittention to the utter failure aud refusal of the lontractor who has the contract for the mildlng of the addition to the Court louse, known as the Hall of Records, ο comply with the conditions of aid contract. To enumerate the varied and arious particulars in which this contractor has ailed to do what he is legally bound to do, and k'hat he has agreed over hU hand and seal to do, k-ouid be a task of rather difficult performance. He not only, fails to follow ray suggestionnas ο what 1 believe he is required to dfo under the ontract, but both he anil the gentlemen re torted to hold a sub-contract for tne same work rent my orders ο ν suggestions with a want of ven common courtesy. I can in no sense permit myself to be responsi le for the completion of said building. I there jre take this occasion to inform your honorable toard of the fact. I also wish to direct attention to the fact that he gentlemen whose duty it is to special upervise and overlook the work, seem to bo ery derelict in the matter. To be brief and pointed I respectfully recom îend that your honorable Board take such sum iary measures as may ee calculated to bring fie gentlemen above referred to, te some ι roper sense of the duties which the ontract mentioned, imposes upon them. In inclusion I ask, if the law will permit, that I be pilieved from the responsibility of any further iipervision of the completion or said building. Respectfully submitted. J amiss T. Gannon, County Superintendent. Struck by a» Engine. Patrick Malaney, who claims to be eighty-nine ears old, α laborer, was struck last evening'at ie Provost street crossing, by a drill engine of îe Erie Railroad.

John Finch, o£ Brooklyn, E. D., was last evening installed pastor of the First Baptist Church of Hoboken· The ceremony was held in the church, corner of Bloomfleld and Third streets, and was both solemn and Impressive. The pretty little church was crowded to the doors. The platform was smothered in palms and over the heads of those who occupied it gracefully hung a huge Amer ican flag. Smaller national emblems swung from the chandeliers and at intervals about the body of the church hung small silken banners variously in scribed, bearing congratulations and good wishes to the new pastor, from "Williug Hearts," "Earnest Workers," "Little Helpers," "Children of the King dom" and others. The effect was pretty. Tne services opened with an organ voluntary and an unthem by the choir. Following this the Rev. Dr. Morse, of Calvary Baptist Church, read from the Scriptures. Prayer by the Rev. Dr. Rhoades, of the Marcy Avenue Baptist Chnrch, of Brooklyn, was followed Dy a hymn, in which the whole congregation joined. Rev. Gifford Nelson, of Trinity Baptist Church, of Brooklyn, addressed the as semblage. He is an earnest and impres sive talker, and his eoiogy of the new pastor was feelingly delivered. "It is with confidence and sorrow that we part with Brother Finch," he said. "He comes into a field that is beset with Innumerable difficulties, and all the more hnnnrwill n.l,t«oh t.n hi si pffnrtjt nn that account. Brother Finch is the right man in the right place, and under his careful guid ance we shall come gloriously out of these difficulties and shall raise on high the banner of Jesus." Mr. Nelson then spoke at length on Mr. Finch's personal qualities. "He is a man," he said, "who, when he gives you his hand, gives you his heart. A minister should be a man who would greet you on the street with the same heartiness, whether you were raiuiented in silks or in rags.'' In closing his address Mr. Nelson called the blessing of God on the congregation, and Hie consecration upon the union of pastor and people. The hymn, "Kock of Ages," was then sung by the choir. The Rev. Ar. Rhode and Dr. Morse also delivered brief ad dresses, after which came the "Corona tion," and the benediction was pro nounced. During the services the choir, under the direction of Organist McGovern, sang the "Jubilati and Bunarn Est," by Dud ley Buck, and "O Lord Be Merciful," by Brown. Refreshments were served iu the lunch basement after the services. The Rev. Charles Colemon, the old nas tor, has answered a call to Chester, Pa. ALI, BAÏONNK TO FIGHT. Developments Before the Jersey City and Bergen Neck Commission. The taking of testimony in the proceed ings instituted by the Bergen Neck branch of the National Storage Com pany's railway to condem a right of way through Bayonue indicates that the com pany hae to fight a whole party of Bay onue real estate "bears." Naturally enough, property owners in Bayonue want to keep values up ιο the top notch, and so it has been easy enough to obtain testimony placiug big figures on the land wanted by the railroad com pany. Ex-Mayor Oliver was one of the wit nesses yesterday. He testified that lots on the line the railroad proposes to follow are wortli #600 a piece. It has been shown that there are no streets laid out in the tracts Ont:ross examination he admitted hav ing recently sold other lots un Thirty eighth street, not far from the railroad line, facing graded and improved streets, for $450 each. The hearing is still in pro gress. FOR AWED GERMANS. The Pioneer Vereiu Can Use Its Legacy in Its Charitable Work. Nearly 400 members of the Pioneer Verein met at Turn Halle on First street jast evening. The meeting was α busi ness one, but at the same time one of re joicing. The cause of the joy was the turning over to the society of a legacy of fJO.OOO and $1,400 interest. This money was left the society by Raymond Roth, a Jersey City druggist, a year ago, with the condition that the Board of Managers of the sociuty be made trustees of the legncy, and thut the interest be devoted to the Home for Aged and Decrepit Men. A property has been purchased on Garfield avenue by the society, and a new building will soon be erected for the Home. At present the old building and other charitable institutions are being used for the comfort of the aged. The society numbers more than six hundeed mem bers and the legacy will be turned to great use. BOARD OF CANVASERS. Keturne Were Not All Heady, and the Board Adjourned.

Full returns are not yet In and the Board adjourned without taking any ac tion. They will meet tomorrow at twelve o'clock. The General Sessions court room was full of local politicians. Nothing detinite could be learned as to the proteste and contests which will re sult. The Nelson—Pairson contest will very likely be heard of in one lorm or another. Til· New Tax 11111. The Council chamber was crowded yes terday and today with property owners eeking their tax bills. A large force of clerks was kept busy making out the statements.

By Cable to the United Pren. LONDON', Nov. 8, 18S0.—Sporting mat ters are rather dull, even the great in novation regarding the Derby and Oaks being accepted with very little discus sion. Owners would no longer enter scarcely weaned colts at random, and the number of suoscriptlons to the Derby of late did not afford a stake to the winner commen surate with the importance of the race. The tixed prize of £5,000 will render the event something else than a harvest for the betting ring. Americans and Aus tralians in London by no means under stand the suddenly developed confidence in the ability of Jem Smith to cope with the swarthy Pete Jackson. That the latter could gradually wear out Smith with bnre knuckles hardly any one doubts, and tnere seems to be no reason why he should not best the Englishman with the gloves, but the money of the book makers is being put up freely on Smith, and the opinion is expressed bv many old timers that the go will result in favor of that fighter.

She said nothing about running away with a drummer, but distinctly stated thBt she left home alone and met the man who deserted her on the street In this city. She made no attempt to commit suicide nor did she utter anything which might bo construed into a threat to do so.

At the last meeting of the Police Com missioners a numerously signed petition was presented calling upon the Board to take some action to abate the nuisance caused by persons throwing all kinds of refuse in the streets. The petition which emincted from the property owners and residents of that portion of the city lying between Grand and Essex, and Warren streets, declared that property in that section had depreciated in value on ac count of such nuisance. Mr. Garwood, who presented the peti tion, laid great stress upon the fact that the street» were often littered with scraps of paper, which, he declared, did as much, if not more, than anything else to create the nuisance complainecT of. He also recommended that the paper be burned and that the indiscriminate circulation of handbills be curtailed. Mr. Garwood claimed that if the Board would do its dutv this matter would be rectified. The Board declared that it wished to do everything in its power for the interests of the tax payers and re ferred the matter to tlie Chief with power.

Any person violating the provisions of said ordinance are subject to a fine of $10. Vessels used for the deposit of ashes, etc., should be of sufficient size and strength as to enable the employes of street department to conveniently handle the same. Persons who use paper boxes for that purpose are only creat ing a nuisance, and shoula be complained of. Storekeepers and others who place paper boxes and refuse paper ont sidewalks are guilty of a violation of this ordinance. Persons who sweep dirt, paper or sefuse mat ter of any kind from the sidewalk to the street, unless the same be picked up and placed in α vessel, are guilty under this ordinance. Commandants of precincts will take imme diate steps to strictly enforce the provisions of this ordinance, ana they will also cause every storekeeper, and the occupant of all houses and tenements, that the ordinance is to be enforced. When officers are notifying the people on their posts, as mentioned abobe, a request will be made of the people not to place any refuse paper in ash barrels. Boys and others who distribute hand bills, cir culars or cards on the streets are creating a nuisance, inasmuch as they canse such things to be thrown on the streets. By order of. Bexj.
