REPORT WpETERIES Authorities Must Put Vaults in Good Condition—Mill Creek Nuisanee Dr. W. W. Varick, President of the County Board of Health, made a report yes terday concerning the condition of the re ceiving vaults in a number of cemeteries. He said that he and Inspectors Tierney and Nevin, in the course of a thorough inspec tion, had ascertained facts as follows:— The New York Bay Cemetery’s vault was in a very bad condition because the Super intendent had neglected to bury the bodies deposited in the vault. When Dr. Varick examined the place ho found twenty bodies there in badly decomposed conditions, and the coffins and boxes were rotten. The doc tor embodied in his report the detailed state ment he made to The Jersey City News exclusively a few days ago, and reiterated that the condition of the vaults was hor rible. Dr. Varick found the Jersey City Ceme tery in even a worse condition. In the vault there he found between seventy-five and eighty bodies. Their condition was disgust ing, and so rotted had become the coffins that some were falling to pieces. Since this vault was examined, five more bodies had been placed in it. Speer’s cemetery vault was in no better condition. It contained seventeen bodies, which created a stifling 6dor. A green mould had formed on the de cayed coffins, and the vault was in a hor rible condition. Dr. Varick gave peremptory orders to the cemetery authorities to bury all the bodies in their receiving vaults immediately, and he was promised that it should be done. The receiving vault in the New Catholic Ceme tery, the doctor found, had not been con structed entirely as required by law, but its condition was such that no complaint ought to be made against it. Dr. Varick found only one body in the Old Catholic Cemetery, ana he did not make any unfavorable re port concerning the vault in this place. For want OI Time uu utuer uciuckjiji »» examined, RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED. At the conclusion of Dr. Varick’s report a resolution was presented and the board adopted it as follows:— Whereas, The receiving vaults of the New York Bay, the Jersey City and Speer’s Cemeteries have been inspected by the President of this board and Inspectors Tierney and Nevin, and from their an tiquity and plan of construction are found to be unfit for further use and a menace to public health. Resolved. That this board do hereby declare »uch receiving vaults to be dangerous to public health and a nuisance, and do hereby order and direct the trustees of said cemeteries to immediately abate said ‘nuisance by the demolition of said vaults. Resolved. That a copy of the foregoing resolution be immediately sent to said trustees. During the meeting of the board yester day John H. Connor, superintendent of the New Catholic Cemetery, inquired what dis position should be made of bodies which would in the future bo placed in the vault. He called attention to the law, which pro vides that no body shall remain in a receiv ing vault between May 1 and November 1 for a longer period thau forty-eight hours. He said the board required him to obtain a permit to remove bodies from a vault, but that the board only met once each two weeks, and that, therefore, it was impossible to comply with the law and the require ments of the board. This query was a poser for a while, and then Dr. Converse came to the rescue. He offered a motion, which pre vailed, to the effect that a' permit for this puroose may be granted by auy individual member of the board, instead of being granted by the board iu meeting. NO FEAR OF AN EPIDEMIC. In connection with the bad condition of the vaults, Dr. Converse took oceation to say that he did not believe cemeteries in large cities were so detrimental to health as many persons feared. “But you don’t hold the same view in re gard to vaults not constructed at least five feet below the surface of the ground!” in quired Dr. Varick. “I do ndt favor the accumulation of bodies in these vaults,” replied Dr. Converse, “but I do not believe they are as dangerous to health as many suppose. I do not believe that epidemics or contagious disease can be generated without the reception of the germs of the disease any more than wheat can grow without seed.” Dr. Converse reported that there were five cases of smallpox at Snake Hill and that all of the patients were doing well. Nothing further will be done with the nuis ance complained of by G. P. Howell, be cause he refuses to go before the Grand Jury with bis complaint, ns directed by the board. The nuisance consisted of tho stop page by the Brie Railroad of the drainage of some lots ownod by Mr. Howell. The prop erty owners who complained expect that the citv will soon build a sower for them. The vacant lot filled with stagnant water, complained of by J. G. Bloch, is being filled in, and no action will be brought against the owner by the board. Counsel to the board was directed to ascer tain from Dr. J. Faber why he had failed to report the births of four children. MILL CREEK NUISANCE. dition of Mill Creek at Mersolas street, and said that it was reeking with filth of all kind, and that the odor arising was abomin able. He said it was a serious raenaneo to tbe health of people living in the vicinity. I)r. Variek said he did not know what remedy the board could take, but that a bill was pending in the Legislature having for its purpose the drainage of this section of tbe city. He feared the bill would not become a law, but declared it ought to pass. All of the members of the board agreed that the nuisance at this point should be abated be fore hot weather arrivos, and three inspec tors were directed to mako a careful ex amination of the nuisance so as to make a report with recommendations at the next meeting. Clerk Rooney reported that the cases of contagious disease in April were as follows:— Diphtheria in thi3 city, 32: in the county, 36; scarlet fever in this city, 46: in the county, 59; membraneous croup in this city, 4; in the county, 9; typhoid lover in this city, 6: in the county, 8; smallpox in this city. 6; in the county, 6. This report does not include the cases in Hoboken, for no re turns from that city are filed with the County Board of Health. . HIS DEC EITFULWIFE John Seeburger Found Out Too Late His Elizabetli Was False. THE TRICK SHE PLAYED HIM. Urged Him to Remain in West Hoboken While She Lived in Newark. It will probably bo a long time before John Christian Seeburger of West Hoboken again ventures into the sea of matrimony. He has had an experimence, and it was one such as but few men ever receive or want. He was married on October 16, 1893, and on December 15, just two months later, his wife gave birth to a child, an act which was the greatest surprise that Mr. Seeburger ever received in all his life. Seeburger lived at Newark during the year 1893, and while there he met a young woman whoso Christian name was Eliza beth. She was very prepossessing, ana See burger fell deeply in love with her. He called very frequently to see the young woman, whose modest and unassuming man ners convinced him that she was the one woman in all the wide world who could make his life happy forever. Seeburger took ner to places of amuse ment, made her many small presents and in I a thousand and one ways tried to convince Elizabeth of his affection. She apparently reciprocated Seeburger’s love, and she told him so many times after he had placed on her finger a solitaire of no mean value a£ a token of their engagement. The young man was a wheelwright by trade and he filled a good position and earned an excellent salary. He said he was in a condition that would enable him to support Elizabeth properly, aud he urged her to .-lcnT or> Anrlv r»nA THE WEDDING DAY. The young woman asked for delay, but Seeburger ardently persisted and so she finally said she would marry him on October 16, 18113. When that eventful day arrived Seeburger, as happy as a lark, accompanied the young woman to the German Johannes Church, Newark, and they were married by the Rev. William Rieb. in the presence of a few mutual friends. The young couple gave a reception that night and the health of the bride and groom was drunk repeatedly, and all kinds of good luck was wished them. Three w eeks later Seeburger lost his posi tion, and his wife urged him to accept one which was offered him in West Hoboken. I The young husband was reluctant to do so, but the urgent persuasions of his wife finally prevailed, and he went to West Hoboken, it | being understood between them that See burger should send for his wife as soon as he could prepare a home for her. These arrangements were soon made and he wrote to Elizabeth to join him. To his astonishment, she refused to do so, but urged him to remain where he was, and she would go to him later. He wrote her fre quently after that, begging her to share his home at West Hoboken, but her answer was always the same, a request for delay. At last Seeburger became suspicious and he determined to go to Newark and have a personal interview with his wife and learn from her the reason why she had failed to go to him. When he reached Newark he learned the reason. He found out completely why the woman had repeatedly sought delay in going to her husband. He learned that two months after they were married and he had left New ark for West Hoboken, his wife had given birth to a male child which she named Frederick W. Seeburger. He also ascertained that the child died and was buried on March 16,1894. When these astounding revelations were made to Seeburger he was overwhelmed with grief, for he had believed his wife to be pure and good. He had never known her to be in the company of any man except him self, and he knew that he wa- not the father of the dead child. CA8T HER OFF. ivifo fiVtat. ho wrrnlH novpr again have anything to do with her, and then he returned to AY est Hoboken. Later he consulted Counsellor Max Salinger and instructed him to begin a suit for absolute divorce, alleging that he had been deceived bv the woman whom he had married. 'The case will come up in the Court of Chancery at an early date, but it is believed that the wife will not defend it. TRINITY’S RIG FAIR. Opened Last Night at Quartette Club Hall, Hoboken. The biggest fair ever projected by the ladies of Trinity Church of Hoboken was opened last night. There was an immense throng inside Quartette Club Hall where there were arranged booths decorated in fanciful drapery and laden with the prettiest of articles. During the evening entertain ment was provided by the Misses Pupke and Pustkuchen and Messrs. Hoise and C. M. Egner on mandolin, Miss AViegins, soprano solos; Miss Stater, piano solo, and Mr. Ketchara, slight-of-hand. At each of the booths there were a number of pretty young ladies who assisted the managers, the latter being: Stationery booth, Messrs.

Bv way of in troduction to the sporte and races on the track a tournament has been devised be tween hunters mounted on jumping horses, Cossocks on pure-blooded Arabian steeds and others. The Mav-pole dance is beautifully executed by expert horsemen and horse women, succeeded afterwards by jumps and leaps over high-barred gates, etc. together with a realistic “hunters’ meet,” showing whole packs of coursing and fox hounds with their whippers-in, etc. It is a very pretty and novel introduction to the races, and ap preciated bv all who love high-class horse manship. This new feature will be seen here when the show arrives on May 16. The show grounds will be located this year on Johnson avonne, near Pacific. There are two sides to every ques tion. Even law Itself does dot escape a double way of looking at it. Else, why is t.here .so much litigation. A title to real estate, in one lawyer’s opinion, may be good. Another may think otherwise and may take the case to the Court of Errors and Appeals, to prove that he is right. Litigation is an expensive luxury, however, which you can avoid by having your title insured by The New Jersey Title Guarantee and Trust Company.

WIFE FORGIVES HIM Forger Randall Brought Back From Texas to Stand Trial Here* THE COMPLAINTS AGAINST HIM Mrs. Ladue Alone in Texas—Mac Umbert and Mrs. Jones Roam ing About the South. Albert Randall, the absconding chief clerk of the Cox Towing Line, who eloped with Mrs. Nellie Ladue, in company with Walter MacUmbert of the Heights and Mrs. Charles Jones, was arraigned before Justice O’Don noeU this morning for a hearing. Ran dall’s forgeries, according to the complaint of General Manager King of the tow ing line, exceed $1,500. Had the complaint of Mr. King been the only one against Randall, he would have been committed at once to the County Jail. Randall, however, will have to answer five additional charges made against him by merchants whom ho victimized by means of the forged checks of the towing company. Enoch Smith, the saloon keeper at Mont gomery and Warren streets, has filed a com plaint against him. Smitn cashed checks amounting in all to $240. William Ifoppermann of Green and Mor ris streets was victimized in the same man ner to the extent of $00. He has made a complaint. Charles Woeltke complains also that Randall secured $117 from him on forged checks. Archie Crossman of Mont tll./lnnn nfl.nofr. ITrnO ttl /iflnl 1 VOli to the tune of $160, and George Lohmann to the extent of $60. The five complaints cover the sum of $637 secured on the forged paper Randall will be detained at headquarters for the remainder of the week, during which time he will be arraigned for a hearing on all the charges. He will then be committed to await the action of the Grand Jury. MRS. RANDALL FORGIVES lllM. Mrs. Randall was at headquarters this morning and had an interview with her run away husband. She has forgiven him and promised that she would do all in her power for him. Randall alleges that when he loft the city he had but $600. His wife says ho had $1,015, and that he counted it in her presence. He alleges also that he gave her $75 for rent before leaving. She declares that he did not give her a cent. Detective McNally, who brought Randall from Galveston, arrived with his prisoner last night. He had Randall handcuffed to him from the time ho boarded the train at Galveston until he had his pris oner safely behind the prison doors at headquarters. At Galveston, McNally was well treated.having found to his pleasure that the Chief of Police of that city was the cousin of Water Registrar “Con” Healy of this city. When Randall was arrested in Galveston he had but $10 remaining of the stolen money. MACCMBERT’8 TRICK. Mac Umbert, however* who was travel ing with Mrs. Jones, took care of himself in a novel way. McNally learned that Mac Umbert got frightened when Randall was arrested and laid plans to set out of Texas. Just prior to his arrest Randall had pur chased four tickets for New Orleans. Two of these MacUmbert returned at the ticket office and secured the money. He also stole Randall’s trunk, and had it shipped to New Orleans. It was recovered later by the police of that city. His next move was to steal $28 from Mi s. Ladue, which was all she had. He pawned Mrs. Jones’ watch and every other article he could get his hands on. By the time Ran dall was arsested MacUmber was well fixed, and, taking Mrs. Jones, he decamped for other quarters. He is believed to be roam ing about New Orleans. Mi-s. Ladue was still in Galveston when Randall returned, ladue, it is well under stood, contemplates seeking a divorce at once. Randall is nervous and is worrying over the prospects of spending the coming frtmwr w/xnwa rtf V»io 11fo KoWinr) tho hnra in ftfoto Prison. NORTH HUDSON'S PLANS. Connecting With the Street From the.Elevated Road on the Heights. The North Hudson County Railway Com pany put 450 men to work this morning tearing up the streets and laying tracks on Central, New York and Palisade avenues. The men were divided into three gangs of 150 each gang, under a separate foreman, worked upon ono of the above named streets. One of the officials of the road, in conversation with a News reporter, said the company expected to have the electric cars running down to the elevator on Palisade avenue two weeks from yesterday. “You see,” he continued, “as soon as the track is laid on New York avenue, we will run the electric cars down to meet the horse cars, and by the time we reach the elevator all the lines will be ready for operation by elec tricity. It will be a couple of months, though, before we will be able to conuect tile surface road with the elevator road, as wo have got to change the platforms of the elevator cars to conform with the street ser vice, and also change the stations on the L line to conform with the street cars. This will necessitate quite some time, but as I said before, we hope to have it in operation in two months, and possibly by the first of July if all goes well, and we meet with no setbacks. When our road once gets run ning, J ou may state in your valuable paper that, without exception, it will be the best elevated road in New Jersey, and as good as any in the world. There is no shoddy what ever, either in the care or the construction, and everything used w ill be of the best ma terial that is manufactured. The road will be operated differently when it is completed than it has been heretofore. Instead of running north on New York avenue and south on Palisade, it will be just the re verse. For instance, here is the new line of operation. The West Hoboken care coming up the elevator wili leave the brow of the hill at the foot of Ferry street and run north along Palisade avenue to West Hoboken. The Central avenue care will bvaueh off likewise and continue north on Palisade ave nue to as far as Frauklin street, where they will go west to Central avenue thus to the Paterson Hank Road. Returning, these care will turn into Ferry street and run east to Now York avenue”, thence south to Ravine avenue, where they will turn east and enter upon the elevator road at the brow of the hill. The care coming from West Hoboken will continue straight down Now York avenue to Ravine, where they will branch east and enter the elovator road also at the brow of the hill. By this it will be seen that the road will be operated in ex actly the opposite direction to what it is now being operated. The power house ou PaiicnHn nYOttiiA k hnvincr frmr HfiW boilers put in and a couple of new dynamos to operate the sixty new motor caw that the company intend running. Without a doubt the road wHT"bo as perfect as is possible to make one when it is completed.” NEW STEAM ROAD T0~ FORT LEE. On Thursday afternoon the first train on a new steam railroad from Weehawken to Fort Lee will be run on the Palisade Steam Railway. The road extends from the ter minus of the North Hudson County Steam Railroad, along the edge of the Palisades, to Fort Lee. Passengers will be transferred from the North Hudson Company’s road to the new one. In time It is Intended to oper ate an extension to Englewood and Closten, work already having been started. These roads have long been needed, and will undoubtedly prove a boom to property in North Hudson County. CITY NEWS NOTES. The Emory Battalion has been Invited by Van Houten Post, G. A.
