Mr. Du Rie, of No. 11 School,
in Judge Wanser's
Court.
PUPIL'S STORY Of BAD TREATMENT
What Mr. Dn Rie Has to Say About
It—The Complaint Dismissed.
William B. Du Rie, the principal of
No. 11 School at Bergen square, was ar
raigned at the bar of Police Justice Wan
ser's Court this morning. Corporal pun
Iishment is forbidden by the laws of this
J State, but Mr. Du Rie is charged with
having assaulted one of his pupils.
His accuser is Ernest Norris, the fifteen
year-old son of a travelling salesman
living on Fairmount avenue. The boy
went into Justice Wanser's Court yester·
f «lay and told Clay Keenan, the Judge's
clerk, that he was taken ill at school on
(xuesciay—ne is not eu-ung aujuu»—*uu
requested permission of his teahcer to eo
tiome. She referred him to Mr. Du Hie,
the principal. Mr, Du Rie could not per
mit him to leave, and Norris, feeling uu
able to coutinue longer at liis desk, rose
to leave without the principal's permis
sion.
Mr. Du Ria'became angered at this de
fiance of his orders, and, as the boy told
it, Du Kie beat him with a rule, and
threw him about the room, kicking him
as he did so.
This conduct on the part of Mr. Du Rie
seemed very reprehensible to Mr.
Keeuau's notion, aud he sent an officer to
Mr. Du Rie's house with a request that
he call this morning to see JusticeWanser.
When he put in an appearance this
morning lie told the Justice that Norris
was not easily managed, and that chas
tisement was necessary. The Justice de
livered a lecture on keeping in good tem
per in the management of children, and
dismissed the case.
I saw Principal DuRie at the school on
Bergen Square after the court proceed
ings aud learned from him that the
father of young Norris is a travelling
salesman at present out of town. Mrs.
Norris is a sickly woman and has no con
trol over the boy.
He takes advantage of his father's ab
sence and behaves as best suits himself.
On the day of the alleged assault Norris
feigned illness ami requested permission
to go home. Mr. Durie thought he was
shamming and refused his request.
Norris became insolent. "Ί will go
home," he said,'"whether you like it or
not." ·
Mr. Du Rie remonstrated when Norris
«lapped him in the face with his clenched
Set. Then it was that the alleged assault
took place.
Taking young Norris by the arm he
laid him across his knee aud administered
a spanking that the young man will re
member for many a day.
After school hours Norris, without first
consulting his mother, went to court and
made his complaint. An officer was sent
to the school to see Mr. Du Rie, but he
had gone, and word was left tor him to
call at the court this morning.
■£' Mr. Du Rie said that Norris' mother
called on him and apologized for her son's
conduct. _
LONDON GOSSIP.
Stanley's Safety Snre—The "Time»" and
the Venal Judges.
By Cable to the United Prêta.
London, Nov. 31, 1889.—After having
been repeatedly reported hopelessly be
leagured by hostile natives and once or
twice rumored dead, both Stanley and
Emin are ascertained upon most reliable
authority to be alive, well and wlthiu the
limits of civilization, while Dr.
Peters, whose massacre was graphically
described only a few days ago, is able to
bear testimony to the falsity of the re
porte concerning him through the indis
putable evidence furnished by the cer
tainty that his head is still upon his
shoulders. The news of Stanley's arrival
at^lDwapwa was received here with feel
ings of satisfaction,and remarks of the "I
told you so" order are frequently heard
this morning.
A detailed account of Stanley's jour
ney, together with authentic news from
Emin, is awaited with great interest, aud
the geographical societies are on the qui
, vive for data which will explode or con
firm the hitherto accepted theories
of the topography of the coun
try traversed by the intrepid ex
plorer, of which previous knowledge has
been extremely vague or totally lacking.
Geologists, too, are on the alert for infor
mation touching the mineral resources of
the dark region, and in fact everybody
who has taken the slightest interest in
Stanley's trip, Emin's researches, or Dr.
Peter's unfortunately fruitless attempt
ut Emin's relief, is in a happy frame of
mind in anticipation of the forthcoming
revelations.
As the running up of the Times case
before the Parnell Special Commission
drags wearily along the utter lack of
justification for the charges made by that
iourual become plain. The question at
issue so £»r as tue court is concernea,
however, is not whether the charges were
justifled, but to what exteut the judges
luay go without danger to themselves or
the Government Iroin public indignation
in shielding the Timet and implying by
inuendoes that its attack upon the Irish
leaders were warrantable.
bo palpable is the bias, of the court in
favor of sustaining the cnarges that not
the slightest public interest is taken in
the present proceedings even by pro
nounced and uncompromising Tories, and
the wonder is that the bewigged judges
have the effrontery to continue the
solemn farce to the end.
The trial of a number of Socialist Depu
ties and others for seditious acts and ut
terauces in belonging to and addressin g
secret societies is still proceeding at Ul
bertield, Kheinch Prussia, and exciting
considerable local interest. The testi
mony against the prisoners is not very
strong, out the exigencies of the occasion,
embracing the approaching elections,
will doubtless ensure the conviction of
most of them.
WANT DAMAGES 1'liUM THE "L"
Last N'lfht'i Meeting of Jewltt Avenue
Property Owner*.
The property owners along Jewett ave
nue who are opposed to the proposed
elevated railroad met last evening in Mr.
J. J. Slefke.s office.
Mr. F. J. Popè was chosen Chairman.
John Knoel 1er said that, w ith but one or
two exceptions, every man present was a
poor man who had entered the fight
against the railroad in order to save his
■ little all fropi ruin.
Mr. Veygrassat said that if the railroad
company wanted to occupy Jewett ave
S . nne all they could have to do would be
to promise to compensate the property
owners.
Ho thought it would be fair for the
company to give a bond to make good any
difference between the present value of
SÏ the land and the value after the elevated
S stiucture is put. up.
Alderman Jewkes, who was present,
said he was with the owners in their et
iorts to obtain damages. The sense of
the meeting appeared to be that no oy
b
position would be shown to the road if
the property owners were secured against
damages to their premises.
AMATEUR THEATRICALS.
An Excellent Entertainment by the St·
John's Catholic Club.
The Catholic Club, of St. John's
Roman Catholic Church, at Nelson ave
nue and Van Winkle street, last evening
presented a farcical comedy and a sump
tuous revival of the famous Irish drama,
"Rorv O'More," at their new and neat
club house theatro adjoining the church.
The club is composed of the social spirits
of the parish, all young people and
talented, and in view of these facts it
may be couccded that the event was a
noteworthy one.
The large hall was packed. Standing
room was at a premium long before the
curtain rose and at eight o'clock people
were being turned away.
The entertainment opened with a side
splitting farce, entitled "The "Virginia
Mummy." The cast was as follows:—
Ginger Blue N. Car
Dr. Oaten J. Koonan
Captain Rifle W. O. Reed
Churles T. Haley
O'Leary Charles Mellon
Schoolmaster D. Downs
Dr. Patent Τ Ο. O'Leary
Lucy Miss Kate Cavanaugh
The very laughable skit was very well
rendered and evoked thunderous ap
plause. After a short intermission the
event of the evening, "Rorv O'More,"
was presented. During the interim Neil
Regau, of the Bergen Point Young Men's
Lyceum, jigged and "reeled" himself
tired, but made a great hit with the audi
ence.
They were so enthusiastically appre
ciative that Mr. Regan determined that
upon his next visit to Jersey City
Heights he will make only half an effort
to please.
"Rory O'More" was very creditably
rendered. Patrick G. Sullivan, a very
clever amateur, impersonated the
famous scapegrace with professional
laughter, ana Mr. Sullivan was more
than successful. The De Dacy of W. O.
Reed was also very clever as was also the
Shan Dhu of J. J. Carey. The other
male characters, ail well rendered and
received were Scrubbs, T. Haley; DeWel
skein, J. J. Curttss: Colonel Thunder,
William White; Solomon William Burke;
Pierre, M. J. O'Brien; and Bill Jones, E.
J. Kennedy.
Miss Gussie Evans was Kathleen,
Rory's sweetheart, a pretty part, prettily
played. Miss Laura T. Evans, as Mary
O'More, and Miss Kate Heunessy, as Mrs.
O'More, also did very well; in fact every
one played the part excellently fos ama
teurs and is deserving of praise. Pro
fuse floral offerings und innumerable
curtain calls were a few tokens of appre
ciation bestowed by the audience. The
other ladies in the cast were:—
Nelly Miss Maggie Hennessy.
nettle Miss Lizzie Whelihan.
Mrs. Doyle Mtss Bridget Douohue.
Nelly Reilly ...Miss Kate Cavanaugh.
Mr. Dan Mulvey, of the New York
World, a well-known theatrical man,
managed the atfair and to his zeal is due
much of the success.
The play will be repeated tonight.
Drunken Tough* oil α Street Car.
Two tough-looking individuals stood
before Justice Stilsing this morning
charged with raising a drunken row in a
street car. They were Dennis Kelly, of
No. 234 Thirteenth street, and Frank
Birney, of No. 109 Seventh street.
They boarded yesterday α street car on
Grove Street occupied bg two ladies, and
picking a quarrel with Driver Rudolph
Hartman over some change, engaged in a
general row, which terribly frightened
the women.
Their screams attracted Patrolman
Moore, who boarded the car and arrested
both.
Birney fell off the car and severely cut
his head. Kelly, in default of $20 fine,
was sent to Suake Hill for thirty days,
and Birney was fined 95.
After Contractor Itrown.
The Grand J ury were engaged tpday in
investigating the cause of the delay in
the construction of the Hall of Records.
Director Steger, Clerk John Boyd and
County Superintendent Gannon were
before the body, and it is said
that all agreed that Contractor
Brown only worked on the Hall of Rec
ords when he had no other contract ou
hand. Evidently Mr. Brown learned last
night that subpoenas had been issued by
the Grand Jury, for today he had at
work a full force of men.
Hearing Coney's Appeal.
The Coney case, in which Real Estate
Agent William A. Harney was so deeply
interested, and which made quite a sensa
tion in this city last summer, was before
the Court of Errors and Appeals today at
Trenton.
Mr. Coney was granted a divorce and
Mrs. Coney appealed from the decree.
The appeal was argued today by John
Linn for Mr. Coney, and M. T. Newbold
for Mrs. Coney.

HACKENSACK SEWERS.
Working for Proper Drain
age in Bergen Hill.
Bergen Hill is largely and deeply Inter
ested in the proposition now pending
before the Board of Works for the con
struction of main sewers on the west side
of the hill-side to tide water. The want of
proper and sufficient drainage has meas
urably retarded the growth of that flec
tion of the city. That part of the Hill
known as Marion is, in fact, at a stand
still in the matter of progress because it
is absolutely without drainage facilities.
The slope of the Hill on the west side is
toward the Hackensack River, and the
river is nature's own receptacle for the
waste.
The difficulty is that no street is ex
tended to the river between the Pennsyl
vania Railroad on the north and Com·
munipaw avenue on the south, and there
is no public highway therefore through
which a sewer can be laid to tidewater.
A PAGE OF HISTORY.
Greenville found herself in the same
fix some years ago. No street there was
extended to tidewater, and the citizens,
led by Henry Lembeck, had an act druwn
enabling the condemnation of lands for
the construction of main sewers across
private lands to tidewater in places
where no public streets were laid out.
The act was passed through the Assem
bly with the aid of Messrs. See, Kelly,
Dickinson, Chapman, Romaine, Hecfc.
Wade, Besson, Frambach and Clarke—
the entire Hudson delegation,and through
the Senate with the aid of Senator Brink
erhoff and signed by Gov. Abbett. Under it
Greenville extended her sewers and priv
ate lands to tide water, and her improved
drainage has increased the value of her
rateable» to p.n extent that has enabled
UC1 υυ J. t μ« J uuo mv Vinj POUUtw UL buvuuir
lay many times over ill the form of in
creased taxes,
It is under this act· that the taxpayers
holding property on the west slope of
Bergen Hill are moving to have main
sewers laid through Sin and Duncan
avenues to the Hackensack river. There
is not a street iu the mile and a half
square of valuable land lying between
the Pennsylvania Railroad and Com·
munipaw avenue, and Besgen avenue,
and the Hackensack River, that is ex
tended to tide water; and it is proposed to
condemn the right of way through pri
vate property, west of the poinu where
the improved streets end, to the Hacken
sack front. The laud through which the
sewer is to be run by condemnation is
all meadow land.
HOW IT WILL BE AR1ÎANGKD.
The act provides that of the expense of
the sewer the property benefited shall be
assessed to the extent of the benefit; and
that the remainder of the cost shall be
paid by the city, aud the city may issue
its bonds therefore.
Almost every owner of property on the
West Side has signed for these needed
outlets, though each is certain to be
called upon to pay a heavy assessment for
their construction.
The meadows, through which tide
water Is to be reached, cannot be expected
to have any very lively interest in the im
provement; and bo they will not con
tribute much towards the cost. The
bounding of the city for part of the cost
may be due partly to this. fact. But the
sewers will bring other forms of income
that are not immediately available; and
the bonds are to issued in anticipation oi
these.
The main sewer will lead to the con
struction of lateral sewers all over the
district, and the property benefitted by
the construction of these will have to
contribute to the expenses the city is tc
incur in the erection of the main sewer,
without which they would be of no
earthly tise. Property, too, will enhance
in value within the better drained dis
trict, and the issuance of the necessary
bonds seems to be not only a safe, but the
proper, thing for the city to do.
BANGED BUMjSEÏES.
The Marion's Cloning and the Kxcalnlor'i
Opening Shoot.
The rifle range constructed by L. P.
Hansen under his store, at No. 78 Mont
gomery street, was formally opened last

JERSEÏ GUI'S TEACHERS.
Their Meetings Grow in Interest and In
Attendance.
The meetings of the Jersey City Teach
ers' Association are becoming more and
more interesting and the attendance is
gradually increasing. Prof. A. P. Apgar,
ôf the State Normal School, at Trenton,
who gave such an interesting lecture at
the last meeting on "How to Study aud
Teach About Insects" talked yesterday
afternoon in the same strain in reference
to minerals.
The Professor is eminently practical in
his suggestions aud illustrations, and the
interesting results which he achieves
from simple methods engage the attention
of the local teachers.
The interest of yesterday's exercises
were also materially heightened by sev
eral violin solos by Miss Emuia Weaver.
Miss Weaver is a talented musician, aud
her listeners were delighted with the
progress she has made while studying
abroad. Sarsante's "Spanische Tanze,"
Wagner's "YValtber's Preielied" aud
Half's "Caratlne" were executed with
skill and expression.
Police Gift» for th· Hospitals.
Dr. Gordon, the treasurer of the Johns
town Relief Fund raised in this city, has
returned $62 to the Police Department as
that amount of their contribution to the
sufferers. The firce has directed that it
be equally divided between Christ Hos
pital and St. Francis Hospitial.
The Montana Senators.
Chicago, Nov. 21, 1889.—4 Tribune spe
cial from Helena, Mont., says:—"Two
thirds of the Democratic members of the
Legislature have arrived here, and in a
secret caucus have practically decided on
u line of action.
It has been concluded that it would be
playing directly into the hands of the Re
publicans to elect two Democratic Sena
tors with the aid of the contested Silver
Bow delegation,as, of course, the contest
would be carried to the United Slates
Senate, and the Republicans would win.
The plans of the Democrats are said to
be to bold the Senate in a deadlock lot
ninety days, which they can easily α ο, as ι
the Senate is α tie. At the end of ninety
days, beyond which time the Legislature
cannot legally Bit, Governor
Toole will appoint two Democratic
Senators who will go to Washington with
incontestable certificates. The Republi
cans are aware of the scheme, but pro
fess to believe that some Democrat will
be found who is willing to break the
deadlock.
FIGHT WITH A BURGLAR.
An Exciting Midnight Adventure
in East Orange.
Special to the Jtrtey City Netnr.
Newark, Nov. 21. 1889.—The summer
house of George C. Taylor, ia East
Orange, is in charge of Steward Hage
mau, Mr. Taylor's family being In their
other residence at Islip, L. L Between
three and four o'clock this morning
Mr. Hagemau was awakened by a
noise In the lower part of the
house and started downstairs with his re
volver in his hand. Entering the dining
room he opened the butler's pantry when
suddenly a blow on the arm caused him
to drop his revolver. He immediately
clinched with the burglar who delivered
the blow, and a deperate struggle follow
ed in the darkness.
Hageman yelled for help, but instead
of help another burglar appeared on the
scene, and placing a revolver close to
Hageman's body fired. As the trigger
was pulled Hageman shifted and the Dul
let simply grazed his flesh aud burned his
nightshirt. In the meantime the burglar
wi'th whom he had grappled had suc
ceeded in inflicting several llesh wounds
with a knife which he used.
Hageman, realizing that his life was in
danger if he struggled any longer, fell on
the floor, feigning that he was killed.
Tbe burglars picked up the silverware
which they had packed up and left the
house. Hageman followed and began
firing his revolver to attract attention,
but the burglars escaped.
THE RULE STKICKEN OUT.
The Erie Railroad Officials Make an Im
portant Conce»eion.
A rumor to the effect that a strike was
threatened among the engineers em
ployed on the Erie road has been in circu
lation for a few days. The reason as
signed by the men for this move was an
agreement which they were asked to sign
by the officials of the road, in which they
were to practically relieve the company
from all damages for injuries sustained
in the performance of their duty.
A committee was appointed to wait on
Mr. Thomas, the general manager of the
the road. At noon today his answer had
not been received. To a News reporter
Mr. Thomas said:—
"The only grievance at present existing
between the road and the men is whether
the examination which every railroad
man has to undergo be written or oral.
Heretofore ir has been oral.
Otir new rule requires that, the answers
shall be written. Whether these ques
tions be answered in writing or orally is
another question agitating us, and we
hope to have it settled in a few days.
"But." I asRed, "what disposition has
been made of that clause, in which the
men are asked to relieve the railroud from
all damages arising from an accident?"
"That," said Mr. Thomas, "Is question
No. 24 In the book and we have decided
to strike it out. The question reads:—
'Do yon understand and assent to the rule
that if you should be disabled by sickness
or other causes the right to claim com
pensation will not be recognized aud if
an allowance is made it will be gratuity,
justified only by the circumstances of
the case and previou's good conduct.
This is the whole bone of contention and
gave use to rumors of a strike. I will
state, however, that we do not anticipate
any trouble, as we are on the best of
terms with our men and treat tbem as
well as any of the roads in the United
States."
THE BOA III) OF HEALTH MEETS.
Dr. Cordon Will Look After Contractors
Using Poor Material.
There was very little important busi
ness before the Board of Health at its
session yesterday afternoon. Dr. Gordon
presided and Drs. Converse and McNeil
were present. The difficulty between
Undertakers Moran and Boyian over the
right to bftry Patrick Larkins, exclu
sively reported in The Jeusey City
News yesterday, was brought np.
Moran was present ana recited the story
of the trouble substantially as it ap
peared in The News. In order to pre
vent the burial of any other person on the
origiual permit issued to Boylau for
Larkins' burial, the Board decided to
call in and destroy it.
The matter of the changing of the
names of Morris Meyer, who committed
suicide several months ago at Greenville,
to Morris Sederer. and Peter Roberts,
who died early last month at the City
Hospital, to Peter Robinson, was con
sidered and referred to counsel. Insur
in both inn tances.
The nuisance on Montgomery street,
near the Cornelleon avenue bridge, oc
casioned by the sewer, was' reported as
having been called to the attention of the
Street Commissioner, who promised to
attend to it.
The failure of a midwife, residing at
No. 51 Hudson street, Hoboken, to report
the birth of Lizze Ann Reiiey at that city,
even after being ordered to do so bv the
Board, was referred to counsel.
The matter of the manure pile on the
Erie Railroad, recently removed by order
from Jersey avenue, took a similar
course.
"Dr." Lawrence was reported as still
practicing without a license. He will be
summoned before the Grand Jury at its
final session today. The papers were
turned over to the court yesterday.
Diptheria was reported as existing at
No. 908 Third street. All bills were
ordered paid. Permission was given to
practice medicine to M. J. Smith, W. J.
Clarke and J. J. McLean.
Dr. Gordon said his attention was called
to the matter of privy basius; that the
market was being flooded with number
less different patterns, many of which
were worthless and dangerous to public
health, and that in New York the author
ities are condemning them. The Doctor
said that in Jersey City contractors were
puttiug in the very cheapest styles. The
Board may take actioc on the matter at
its next meeting. The Board then ad
journed until the first Wednesday in Do
cem ber.

ι
Is the New Building Plan a 1
Waste Land Specu
lation?
There is no doubt that the Granite State
Improvement scheme, which was explain
ed, or attempted to be, by Mr, Kggle
ston, at the meeting at the Avenne House
last Monday evening, has aroused the
widest Interest among those who are in
terested in the building and loan associa
tions with which this county teems. It
may be that the opposition manifested at
the meeting is prompted wholly by self
interest, but some disinterested people
who have studied the «natter do not see
how the scheme can be successfully or
profitably put into operation.
POINTS OF CONTRAST.
If a man wants to build on this new
plan he makes application to the associa
tion in which he holds shares for a loan,
and it is said that the scheme contem
Îdates a loan not only for a building on a
ot which he owns, but also for the pur
chase of the lot. In this latter respect it
differs essentially from the ordinary
building and loan scheme —which re
quires that a man shall own the lot on
which his dwelling,built with association
moneys, is to be erected. The mortgage
given back to the association for the loan
not only covers the building but the lot
as well—which ot course adds to the
security held by the association.
The new scheme, however, contem
plates—or seems to—the advancing to tne
home seeker of all the moneys needed to
secure his home, and this is the special
inducement it holds out.
The second difference noted between
the two plans—in the manner of raising
funds to loan—is not so essential an one
as it seems. In the existing building and
loan association scheme, the money is
sold when the dues of the association
aggregate enough to malce a loan.
The Granite State plan is, when a loan
of $1,000, for instance, Is asked, to have
the members subscribe $200, to exact from

security. A building and loan association
would have to wait until the $800 cash
had been paid in to make a loan of il.OOU,
so that under the new scheme—of raising
only the Î300 from members and the rest
on bond—it is possible for the new con
cern to make four loans, while the exist
ing concerns are raisin* the funds to
make one.
But then the building and loan associa
tions are constantly securing loans at the
banks. The Second National Bank has a
large building and loan account. The
First National does something in that
direction; but not so much. The moneys
thus secured are "sold" to the members
who desire to build. So, again, it would
appear, the difference between the two
plans does not seem to be essentially
marked.
HOW ABOUT SHAREHOLDERS?
A gentleman connected with a banking
institution in this city, and who has op
portunities for gauging up the new enter
prise with accuracy as to its financial
bearidgs, said, when talked with upon
the subject yesterday, that it seemed to
him that the new scheme is backed by
some speculative capitalists who are will
ing to let their money go upon risks. The
mortgages given back to the bond de
partment of the new-plan organization to
secure the outside loan of #800 would
probably protect the man who makes the
bond loan; but then, the critic who is
being quoted asked, what would become
of the shareholders? They would have to
content themselves with a second mort
gage, and a sale under the first mortgage
to repay the bondholder would wipe them
out.
"My notion about it," said The News
informant, "is that the scheme is one to
build up waste aud meadow lands for
speculative purposes."

the Hoboken police station.
That Mysterious Phlladelphian.
The mystery surrounding the disap
pearance of the Philadelphian from
Hoboken is still unsolved. The police
tiave discovered the fact that the chin
chilla overcoat of his which Drewes and
Van Varrick pawned was bought at
Brokaw's stores on Fourth avenue, New

to anything.
A JERSEY AVENUE ROBBERY.

The residence of Mrs. H. W. Billing
ton, of No. 565 Jersey avenue, was en
tered by a sneak thief while the family
wore down to dinner at six o'clock last
evening, who made aivay with a ladies'
gold watch and chain, a pair of bracelets,
and a pair of diamond earrings and a
valuable necklace.
The jewely was taken from a bureau
drawer in one of the second story rooms.
Mrs. Billington had left the room only
ten minutes before. She was indisposed,
and after drinking a cup of tea in the
dining room below returned to her room,
when she immediately discovered the ab
sence of her treasures.
This is the season of the year when the
sueakthief gets in his line work, for the
reason that it is dark early, and while the
lights in the basement reveals the family
gathered about the supper table the dark
ened rooms above notify the outside thief
that in the upper stories the coast is clear.
SOMEONE ELSE HIT HIM FIEST.

Patrick Cahill, of No. 589 Grove street,
was committed by Justice Stllsing this
morning in default of $500 bail for assault
and battery on Michael McBrlde, of No.
201 Erie street. Cahill recently sold Mc
Bride a stable for $10. Last night he
called upon McBride and the dispute
arose during his visit over $1 which
Cahill said was yet due him.
Mr. McBride's face looked as though
he had just escaped from the melee at
Muldoon's picnic. It was a mass of
bruises and cuts, partially hidden by a
straggling growth of gray beard.
"Didn't you abuse me, call me all
koinds of dirthy names, Mr. McBride ?"
asked Cahill.
Mr. McBride hesitated.
"Didn't you catch me by the throat and
stroike me on th' nose?" Mr. Cahill again
asked.
"Your nose was sthrook before ol did
did it," responded Mr. McBride.
"Well, yer Honor, whin 1 saw the bleed
oi got mad, and shure oi had the roight
to be.
Mrs. McBride testified that Mr. Cahill
tumbled her husband under the stove,
broke the stove ana then kicked his head
about the room like a football, and would
have murdered him if Patrolman Feehan
hod not been summoned by her terrified
screams.

hawkèn; Police Commissioner Feeney,

well-chosen words introduced Mayor
Cleveland.
"X am nappy to welcome such an as
semblage of distinguished guests as are
here from throughout the State," said
the Mayor. "I believe the Order of For
eetrv to be a powerful factor in our gov
ernment, and I think the grand concen
tration of the courts throughout the
State today will Drove a boom to the Or
der." The Mayor expressed regret that
he was beyond the limit of ag· at which
he could be a Forester, and in conclusion
be said that he was with them in heart
and spirit and offered the visiting dele
gates the hospitality of the town.
Grand Chief Ranger James F. O'Mealia
was next called upon. Mr. O'Mealia
made a splendid speech, in which he
clearly detlued the benefits accruing from
being a member of the Order of Foresters
and said that it was the happiest moment
of his life when he was declared Grand
Chief Ranger.
Surrogate James O'Neill was the next
sneaker. He briefly said that seeing the

to be a Forester.
"I am proud to be a Forester," said

Itles of his city. Come up where I am
and I will give you the keys of the town,
and on your way to Guttenberg drop In
and I will give you a straight tip."
The assemblage then had the pleasure
of listening to Sheriff Davis' maiden
speech. It was not resplendent with
flowers of rhetoric, but it was short and
to the point, and was greeted with loud
applause.
Speeches were also made by Joseph W.
Mason, Police Commissioner Feeuey.
John J. Kelly and several others, after
which the assemblaee departed for their
respective homes, and the first day of the
State Forestry was at an end.
