?R KiK one (Tenτ ! LAST EDITION. ONE CENT LAST EDITION. VOL 11L—NO. 4079. EXPRESSMEN STRIKE n Twelve Hufldred Employes of the Adams Com pany Quit Work. LONG LIST OF GRIEVANCES Men Discharged Without Cause— i Hour's Increased and Wages lowered. In the neighborhood of 'twelve hundred men, representing: the clerks, drivers, helpers and porters, employed by the, Adams Express Company in this city and New York are out on strike. There are several reasons for the strike given by the men, but the foremost is that the j>ew Western managers have been making •them work like dogs, with longer hours and reJuced compensation. The strike started at midnight, and today every branch of - the company's business is ef fectively *ied up. Policemen armed with night sticks are doing duty at the stables at 'Montgomery and Henderson street, in Exchange place, about the Pennsylvania KailrGad ferrybouse and on the express company's shipping pier. The men say the policemen will have nothing to do, as they propose to conduct their fight, which they deem an honest one, in an orderly maimer. Tihe strikers, and 'there are about one ■hundred and forty of them τη this city, shave engaged Franklin Hall, at Mont gomery and Warren streets ami will make it their h-aadquarters uracil the strike is settled. All the men have been requested not to gather in groups on the streets, but «Co repair to headquarters if they wish to diaeuss the situation. Only three waggons pulled out of the stables in Montgomery street this morn ing, although it is said Master of Trans portation Peter Miller exerted every ef fort to *iind men to fill the places of the strikers. Of the wagons that went out one was a double wagon and was in charge of Frank Steely, who, ft is as serted, was dismissed 'two weeks ago by Agent "Miller for something bordering on incompetence, he not being in any way familiar with the streets of this city or New York. The other wagons were sin gles or one-horse wagons. One was out only a few minutes when the driver re turned to the stables and to the joy of the strikers declared he coud not do any thing against the interests of his fedlow \CGik men. J-ait night before the strike was ordered the men did up ail the work. The drivers cc Meet el freight and baggage all day yesterday, and the clerks and handlers on the several piers assorted it and made it ready for sh-ipment before leaving their posts. The men say that they want to I do no: want any more people than pos&i P'-.fcla to suffer toy their fight for what they deem justice, this morning- consented to , have the drivera of the newspaper de î.very wagons remain, at their posts until all thA* part of the company's business 113*1 oeen gotten safely out of the way. , AU hough the mem have had grievances agulrjst the company ever since Western men. took control of it, it was not until a few weeks ago that the determination was arrived at to bring the company to terms. The first step the Western men took, it is said, after assuming control, was to endow all the local agents with the power to dismiss and engage men. At about the time this was done the employes of New York and this city organized what is known as the Keystone Lodge, which 1* a branch of the regularly organized Knigh&s of Labor. The strikers say that when the new mafliagement learned of the organization of .the Lodge they began at onoe to take steps to root out all the organized men, starting by chopping off the heads of the old and high salaried •men. At frequent intervals men who were members of the lodge were dismissed and it is said absolutely refused an ex planat on or given any cause whatever for their removal. A week ago William Prescott, of this city, one of the company's oldest, most experienced and high salaried drivers, was dismissed and no cause for his re moval was given. Prescott accepted his dismissal gracefully. Then Frank Bor den. a popular clerk on the Forty-ninth street pier, was removed without any cause being assigned. Dissatisfaction be gan to grow among the men. Prescott and Borden waited on Master of Trans portation Peter Miller in this city and Superintendent J. Zimmermann at No. 5Θ Broadway, New York. Neither of the officials would assign any cause for the removal of the men, nor would they discuss the subject. Bor den and Prescott next waited on Presi dent A. C. Weir at hie office in No. 59 Broadway, New York. He received them coldly and said he did not propose talking with ex-emoloyes of the comnanv. The men said they were asking for an ex planation and reinstatement as members of organized employed league. Prési dent Weir, it is said, bowed them out w:th the announcement that he would hear a committee of the employes who were members of the league referred to. Yesterday afternoon a committee of the league, with 3. W. Fountain acting as spokesman, waited on President Weir. They made a formal demand for the re instatement of Borden and Prescott. Mr. Weir's answer was to the effect that the several agents had the right and power to dismiss and engage men. It was a power, lie said, that he did not care to Interfere with. The committee cited the fact that in dismissing men the agents were dis criminating against men who belonged to the Koyetone Lodge. The President was then asked if It was not true that the company had set afoot a movement to knock out the lodge, because it to a Kn shts of Labor organization. The answer, it is said by the committee, was en evasive one and was wound up with the declaration that he would not rein state m«n or in any )»'a.y interfere with the anior.s of the agents of the company. When the committee reported the re sult of the hearing the strike was or dered. and the company is hopelessly crippled. On the pier there is an enor mous number of trunks and bags which cannot be moved, and It Is said that there iî a considerable quantity of perishable freight tied up. The strikers say that it will take the company a month or mon? to hire new men and as much lortger fo break them In, so that even a small quantity of baggage can be handled. This is the busy timo of the year for the company, and a strike at this time will upset the company effectually. The men say that if the quitting of the New York and Jersey City men does not cripple the company. the employes of the com pany on all the lines operated by it will be called out. The men say they are determined to win. but Insist that they will conduct their fight in a manner which will reflect no discredit upon them. Or.e of the prominen: members of the K 'ystone lodge, speaking of the situa tion this morning, said:— "ThU Is no new ih'ht. A strike has only been averted a dozen times by a few men. We have be»n worked like so many dogs. In the winter we were forc ed to work from seven o'clock in the morning, cn piers and in wagons, until midnight. On the pier in this city the men at midnight were usually given a •mail cup of coffee auU one «flail sand wich. To prevent the men from getting more than one sandwich boys were com pelled to pass them out one at a time. Although we worked so much overtime we were never paid anything extra. "As soon as the Eastern men were bounced out of offices of trust to make room f<5r the Western men, wages began to be reduced. Stablemen have had their salaries reduced three times in two years. Clerks have been cut down and so have all the other employes. Not content with reducing our salar es men were dlsoharged right and left and those who were re tained were forced to do double work. The clerical force was at one time made up of men who were quite well paid. The Western management upon taking con trol at once began to remove the ex perienced men, until today the clerical force consists of boys who are being paid from $20 to $23 a month. That is j the way we have been ground down. We have not been treated like human beings since the Western men have been in control. "In addition to being underpaid and being forced to work twice as long as men in other branches of business, we are subject to dismissal by men who know actually nothing about how much we do or how much we earn. Men who have spent the greater part of their lives in the business have by honest work secured promotion only now to be thrown out of a place and no explana tion given why they were dismissed. We do not propose molesting the company in any way. We believe in* the justice o* our cause and believe merchants and cit izens, who learn our grievance, will sympathize with us. Even now when the company is doing a tremendous business, the working force has not been increas ed. We have been forced to do double duty, but we have been given no extra pay. We are not striking now because we think we can cripple the company more than we could later, nor are we doing it to inconvenience travellers. This strike was forced upon us, and we hope to win on the merits of our cause." At the express pier the only signs that a strike was in progress was that there were no wagons. The freight coming in by train and boat was easily handled, but it had to stop at the dock, at least that freis-ht to be forwarded bv wagon. "My work is all up, said Agent Temple this morning to a "News" man; "of course we are crippled a bit here, but I have all the men I want to handle the freight. 1 have no wagons. That is a matter under the control of the transpor tation department." "Khe strikers held a long session in Franklin Hall today. I't was suggested by some of the men, that they call out the stablemen at once. The suggestion was not adopted, the majority of t:he strikers being of the opinion tha!t the company would experienc·.· no trouble in finding new men to take, care of the horses. It was reported at the meeting that the men who took out th® sin'gle wagons this morning were John, OMeehani and James Barry. I't was the opinion of some of ths men that an error had been made in start ing the strike on Saturday. Saturday be ing a half holiday anil -Sunday following practically gives the company two days it was argued, -in which to engage new men. It was reported ait noon to-day iha't Su perintendent Peter Miller is in Philadel phia engaging men to take the places of the strikers. It is said that there are hundreds of men in tfea't city who have already applied to the officials to be sent to tfrii city and New York. The strikers do not fear the employment of new men for the reason that they will be unac quainted with 'the streets and as a conse quence will be unable to do 'the company's work. The strikers are confident of victory. It was reported to some of the strikers this afternoon that the United States Express Company was assisting the Ad ams people in disposing of its accumu lated freight. The employes of the Unit ed States Express Company are organiz ed and will, it is said, refuse to handle Aciams freight. If the company insists that they must do it. it is not considered improbable that there will be a strike of the men at once. The strikers say that when the proper time arrives they will be able to put on the screws and force the company, m^ adj-JUBline-the trouble. The organization of which the strikers are all members is said to be strong finan cially and "until the strike is settled the men will be allowed enough to keep themselves and families. The men say they are prepared to make a long fight. President Weir when interviewed in New York today said that the salaries of the men have not been reduced. "There has been," he continued, '^how ever, an equalization of the w<ag*s of the men; that is to say, we pay them here the same wages as they receive in our other offices throughout the country. The wages of drivers have, however, re mained unchanged, the average rate be ing about $12 a week. It will be easy for us to get drivers to All the vacan cies." The President said that the work was not affected by the strike, and freight was being received. At the New York stables about 70 wagons were idle, th'ere being no one to take them out. The strikers are near the stable seeing if oon-undon m'en, are hired. It was learned that only, four wagons had left the stable this morning, and the striken are keeping careful watch. A brick was thrown at one of the drivers as he proceeded along Church street with a waeon, but it missed him. The officials of the company do not an ticipate any trouble iin handling the freight, an-α say there is no fear the strike will spread to other cities. E0B0KEF8 PIGHEADEDNESS. Mr*. Steven· Taxed for Land She Gave the flty for a Park. The Commissioners of Appeals of Ho boken met last night to hear protests agafnst excessive assessments from vari ous property owners. The Hoboken Land Improvement Company was the first ob jector. Its officers were represented by the President, William A. Macy, and two lawyers, R. A. Lindabury of Elisabeth and A. S. Lewis of Hoboken. The com pany asked for a reduction of $794,280. Its total assessment is $1,152,000. an increase of $714,000 over last year. This property is all on the river and comprises the Netherland docks. Schultz's lumber yards, W. & A. Fletcher machine shops and a strip of property donated by Mrs. Stev ens as a public park. Mr. Macy, on behalf of the Land Com pany, after going over the figures in de tail, contended that the increased valua tion this year was excessive and that the Commissioners had no right to tax the property so heavily. Mr. Lindabury. for the Stevens estate, contended that the property assessed was dedicated for public use and could not be legally taxed and that if the local board did not set the assessment aside the County Board would, as a mistake had been made. Mr. Lindabury was of the opinion that the board was deliberately inviting litigation, which he promised would end disastrously for the city. The r"ommissioiiPrs nmmlewl rr, r>r, r>_ sider the appeals carefully and referred them to the Committee of the "Whole. Mr. Degnan. of the board, said that the Commissioners would stick to their valua tions. VEGETABLE ANd'fRUIT THIEVES A Pest Whirl» Harraeee* tlie Green ville Farmer»· . The truck farmers, gardeners and fruit growers of Greenville are tsow confronted wHh -that pest, fruit and. vegetable -thiievea^ which, maâoes Stg appearance | about this time every year. The thrifty agriculturists suffer much loss every sea son by the thieve who make night raids j c*n their crops. Th's mi Isa nee is not alone | confined to boys who steal ifco satisfy their i appetite, but to men- as well. I^ast year | se veral Italian fruit stand owners were caught stealing fruK αη<1 selling it from their stands. The yomths are already out in force, raiding pear ared apple trees o-f priva Le residences. Nicholas Pelliîiirer, of No. T7 Old Ber gen road, was made an example of yester day. He was arrested by Detective Egari nf the F'fth Precinct on complaint of a farmer from whom he had stolen some produce. BOY FALLS FBOM A TBEE.

Aug. 15, 1896.—The Fu turity Stakes for two-year-olds, the rich est event of the American turf, will be run et Sheepshead Bay this afternoon and promises to furnish a most interest ing and exciting race, despite the fact that the field will be the smallest in the history of the big stake. Elevin young sters are eligible to start, but it is more than probable that only ten will go to the post. Octagon and his stable com panion, Dfln de Oro, are both ailing, and there is little prospect that the Blemton Stable, whose chances for the race looked so bright two months ago, will send a representative to the post. The following are the entries for the race, with the weights and jockeys and with the bet ting on the chances of the horses, as it prevailed in some of the uptown hotels this morning:— Ornamnt, 116, Sloane, 7 to δ: Rhodesia, 112, Sims, 3 to 1; Challenger, 115, Doggett, 5 to 1: Octagon, 103. Grlffln, 6 to 1; Scot tish Chieftain, 113, Tarai, 10 to 1: Ogden, lio, Tuberville, 10 to 1; Bastion, 115, Clay ton, )0 to 1: Newsgatherer, 105, Ballard, 10 to 1; Box, 108, Perkins, 15 to 1; Poder mond. 115, Hamilto®, 20 to 1; Paninure, 108 Hill, 30 to 1. (Scottish Chieftain and Ogden coupled, in betting.) The Kentucky colt Ornament will doubtless go to the post a favorite. He is not likely to carry the 110 assigned to him in the official entry list, as his owner claims an allowance of Ave pounds because his sire, Order, did not get a winner previous to 1894. Although the youngster has shown no very fast trial in his preparatory work, he is known to be in the pink of condition. Rliodesiaus' brilliant race against Cle 1UO «*,*. j3i igjiiua ortiCU m»i- X UCSsUirty sent the stock pf the Keene filly up with a rush, and she Is regarded bj a good many turfmen as the two-year-old that Ornament will have to beat. The Stock w-11 stables' fast brown colt Challenger will be well supported in· the betting, more especially since the heavy rain of yesterday, for the colt is in his element on a heavy track, such às the jtreA race will probably be tun upon. Challenger worked six furlonffs in 1:1494 on Wednesday, with weight up and with .something to spire at 'the finish. One of the keenest turfmen In America said yesterday that the chcsmut colt Box, owned by W. Showalter, brother to the weil-known chess master, would certainly be among the ooratendlng two-year-o!de today. Box arrived a few days ego and created a good impression among East ern turfmen by working six furlongs in l:Wi. with 123 pcunds up ami when Just off the cars from LatotUa. Marcus Daly's representatives, Scot tish Chieftain and Ogden, are fancied by a few. Matt Byrnes has given α special preparation to Scottish Chieftain since his last race, and with Tarai in the saddle the colt will not run without backing. Little is known about Ogden, the colt having started only at Butte and An aconda. Mont. He is not generally look ed upon as a formidable candidate, how ever. James Rowe will send th« Brookdale Stables' Bastion to the post, but the noted trainer has little expectation of winning the race. Hamilton will prob ably ride Rodermond, whose chance, like that of the remaining starters, News gatherer and Panmure, seems to be somewhat remote. The race will be worth about $50,000 to the lucky man who cools out the winner. ELOPED TO Η0Β0ΚΕΝ. A New ITork Couple married In New Jrr«fT. Wilfred H. Bullenkamp, a fruiterer of New York, and Jennie Kordock of New York also, tot.h of whom refused to give their address, called upon Justice of the Peace James Clark, of Hoboken, late last night and asked to be married. They ad mitted they had eloped. "Why, .they would not say. The only other» present in the office were 'two newspaper reporters. The reporters were naturally asked to serve as witnesses. When the ceremony was over the newly wedded pair requested anxiously that the Justice keep the mar riage out of the newspapers. Justice Clark said:— "I donCt see how I can do it. The wit nesses are both newspaper men and I can't muzzle the press." The bride and groom were nonplussed for a moment. "Why didn't you tell us?" asked the husband. "Oh, well," he continued, "we don't care about the local papers so long as it·don't get Into the New York papers." The justice and the reporters assured them that the New York newspapermen would never hear of their escapade, and they leSt in a happy frame of mind. BON TON MAKES A CHANGE.

BRYAN PETERS OUT Xhe Popoerat Candidate Goes ' Up the Hudson—Gold News at Washing- * ton. NEW YORK, Au». 15, ISM.—Willi Jennings Bryan arose early this mornine to make preparations for his trip up the river,· He saw few callers at the Stojun home before he left for the Grand Central Depot to take the train for Irvlngtoii, where, with his wife and Candidate Ar thur Sewall, he will be the gueet of John Brlsben Walker unitil Monday. The par ty left on the 10:45 o'clock train. J Mr. and Mrs. Bryan will go further north on Monday to Upper Red Hook. Dutchess county, where for ten days they will be the guests of Mrs. Perrine, a for mer school teacher of Mrs. Brya.n. John Brlsben Walker appeared at Mr. Sinjun's home a few moments after break fast to escort Mr. Bryan, Mrs. Bryan and Mr. SetvaJl to his place at Irvington-on the-Hudson. « Mr. Sir.jun will go today to Fire Island for a weeks vacation. It was his imen tk;n to take Mr. and Mrs. Bryan with mm. He has, up to this time, expended f.ll the money for the entertainment tof the Popoerat candidate and expected, of course, that they would hold to their en gagement with him for the vacation? but t he a traction of Mr. Walker's Hudson place proved too all-tiring and the two candidates abandoned Mr. Sinjun. While Mr. Bryan was at breakfast this £UU1|£> L.%» ·_> v — called at the house. They told the po licemen that they waateu to see Mr. Bryan and Mr. Sinjun. When the latter heard of it he sent out word that the ■household was at breakfast ami that neither he nor Mr. Bryan could see cal lers. The two strangers at once produced a package and a roll which the policeman on duty sent to to .Mr. Sinjun. It wis found that the package contained a book, and the cover of it was gorgeously decorated with a picture of a golden cross to which was hailed the grit figure of a man. Mr. Sinjun, when questioned about the matter, declared sharply that the book was so blasphemous In its character and tone that he would not show It to Mr. Bryan. He Insisted that the candidate knew nothing whatever about the book or its contents. The banker declared tha* he had not ex amined it closely, but that It was some thing about free silver. That was all he could be induced to say about it. As soon as the policeman took the pack age Into the house the two messengers left. There was little or no demonstration at the Grand Central depot. Λbout 150 persons were gathered to see Mr. Bryan and they pressed around and crowded the entrance way. Mrs. Bryan smiled sweetly, and Mr. Bryan lifted his hai in response to a mild cheer, amd then the. party hurried through the platform gates to the waiting train. Before leaving Mr. St. John's house in East Thirty-fourth street, Mr. Bryan had a brief talk with the reporters who were waiting to see him off. He said that he knew when he came to Xew York it was to face an antagonistic press. and he had received better treatment th-un b° had expected. He congratulated himself that none of the editorials published in this city had referred to him as an An archist *ince he arrived. He knew that they had done so previously, and was de lighted to believe that he had at least paariadiy -eraatcaiea cna.t stMiitiiHreut re gardlng him.

NO SILVEESENTIMENT. Much Talk and Vapor, But No Fact· Can Be Located. WASHINGTON. Aug. 15, 1896.—Senator Jones. Chairman of the National Demo cratic Committee, was at headquarters fhit» mnrntinie· hut a.t rmnp nlun&ed into work and declined to ©ee any one until late in the· afternoon. He found .it ab solutely necessary, it was started, to deny himself 'to visitors in orde-r to catch .up wi:th the business w.bich has^c-cumulated while he was in New York. A conférence lastinsrs upwards of an hour was held be tween Chairman Jones Senator Faulkner, Chairman of the Congressional Committee; Gen. Λ J. Warner, of Ohio, and Repre sentative M'C'Millijii, of Tennessee. Senator Faulkner left tliis afternoon for 'his home in MarLinsburg·, "W. Va., to spend Sunday, and. Secretary Gardner ran down to At lantic City to escape the heat for a cou ple of days. Cha^uncey F. Black, of Pennsylvania, will issue his call for the meeting· of the National Association! of Democratic Clubs, this afternoon. Incorporated in the call will be a letter from Chairman Jone? bearing upon the subject. It is pro-posed to ' make the work of these clubs a valuable aid to the committees in np,r.^i mr c^amnaAsrriL Representative Thaddeus Manon, of Ch ·mbf r^burc:. Pa., -district, was at Re publican headquarters this' morning. His district Is almost exclusively agricultural, and Mr. MattoiJ says he is able to find no silver sentiment among the farmers In that section. They are. he says, all talk ing tariff. and believe that if the tariff question was settled there would be no trouble with finances. He says the only open question in Pennsylvania Is how great the Republican majority will be. General Griffin, of Wisconsin, who suc ceeded Representative George Shaw, who died, In the FiSty-'thlrd Congress, brings encouraging news to the Republican Com mittee. He say® there is jio disaffection among the Republicans in that State. Thai a silver sentiment existe among some Re publicans has been constantly asserted, but when one endteavors 10 locate it, it is always in the next, county. When that section is subjected to an examination 'the aantimenit has mysteriously disap peared and is reported to be elsewhere.

IS, 1896.—Monmouth county will be an interesting locality to watch during the' coming campaign. Both parties are confident that they can win. As matters look now it is to be a campaign of features. Senator Bradley is talking for gold from a real stump, and the silverites have mission aries going about from farm to farm distributing and explaining silver lit erature. It is also the native place of Garret A. Hobart, and this fact will Cause it to be kept in the public mind. - The silver talk is confined to Democrats, who are persuading themselves that free coinage of silver is a saving issue and the uuu general cure-all for all the ills that the country seems to be heir to. ; They are bowing to the silver Josh and ^Jabbering his praises because the Demo cratic organizations have declared it so. On ihe other hand such men as County Chairman Henry "S. Terhune. former Judge Alfred Walling, prominently men tioned for Senator on the Democratic ticket, are for gold, and former United States Senator Rufua Blo<lgett admits that the sliver agitation so far is con fined to Democrats. Former Senator il. S. Little,, one of the leaders, has also declared against Bryan. Henry S. Terhune's position has greatly annoyed the D&moq;a.t.c workers. He is a nephew of Former Senator Little and was formerly a Senator from the county, and acquired some State notor.ety be cause ht voted for the race-track bills, and practically spoke against them. tip ïo Lhe time that h-e- made tire declaration that he could not support the Chicago csuiuieate I and platform, Mr. Terailne was the choice of many foir State Senator, but it is ap parent now that he is not counted aa_ λ cctiniy steward Dearer. He declares that he is not a ua.nd.date for she place and s in favor of former Judge Walling. He also admits that the Democrats are very much disorganized and t'ha-t the result is beyond his compréhension. J«l?e Walling was the onlv Democrat cm the eounity ticket el©oted last fall. The Demoams are satisfied to run n:ra on his record as judge and Assembly man, but there is a serious hitch. Judge Walline is for gold. ami the majority ot his party, for constetencv's aake, are for silver. Former Assemblyman Aaron K. John ston is also mentioned as a candidate for Senator. Since he served in the leg islature lie has been looking on politics, and quietly giving advice to the local leaders. Former Senator Blodgett claims to be the original silver man of Monmouth. He offers the opinion that Monmouth was normally Democratic and that Abbett ism at one time, and race tracks at an other had split the Democratic party into small parts, but >ic thought that the fight of this campaign, as it would be understood by the ordinary voter, would be between the moneyed people of this countrv and the working people, who actually produce the wealth, and that the silver side would be the popular one. Senator Blodgett's declaration that he will bo only 4 looker on this year. Is not accompanied by any declaration that he will reeig'i from the Democratic State Committee with the half dozen other committeemen when the Democratic State Convention declares for silver. Fnar.k Appleby, of As>btiry Park, who was one of the delegates to the St. Louis Convention, has gone over tiie county with a divining rod, and toe can locate real silver as quickly as anybody in· the coun ty, says he can produce five Democrats who have come over to gold,, to ODe Re publican who has gone over to silver. He has e list of Democrats in Asbury Park and v;tômHy w^Mr-have deciarW ft?? gOîiï. 'He refuses, however, from personal rea sons, to let it "be published. Colonel James Tard of the Monmouth "Democrat," bolts the Chicago ticket and platform anr puts at the head of the editorial column the gold plank of the State Convention. Senator Bradley and Wm. Eppleby think that the position —^ w*** vw* «.u xo iuc μυ.ιι liuii of the better element of the Democratic party. There is no doubt that its posi tion has had some effect on Senator Bradley and has led him to predict the success of the Republicans in the county. It is thought by many that it is also influencing- the Senator to the consider ation of the proposition that he again be a candidate for Senator. He was pointedly asked whether he would be a candidate again, and in reply said!— "No. I am through with, politics. I do not care to go through another cam paign-." Tlvis declaration is in keeping with -the Senator's . diffidence, but he *s not through with politics, for he is full of enthusiasm for the success of the gold ticket, Wihich is clearly demonstrated by his active management of "the stump," from which he speaks nightly in Railroad square, in Asbury Park, and which, he claims, has been productive of much good. Af'ter him, in popular esteem, comes As semblyman Asa Francis, of Norçth Long Branch. He has had two ternurkln the Lower House of Assembly. His record has· been entirely satisfactory to the people of the county, and they are willing that he should go to the Senate. It is possible that there will be three new Assemblymen, Francis and Snyder, riie two Republican members, have had two years, and former Judge Walling has had only one, and it is possible, whether he gets the nomination for Senator or not, that he will be retired, because lie is too pronouncedly for the yellow metal. The Republican candiid-ate -are numerous. Among those mentioned are John E. Fos ter. of Atlantic Highlands; Ο. H. Brown, of Spring Lake; C. B. Guerin, Edward Fielder, who was assistant Secretary of the Senate, and Elijah Fielder, of Long Branieh, who formerly resided in Trenton. On the Democratic side those listed are Dr. William McMilten, of Millstone; Frank Fay, of Long; Branch; William C. Dever eaux, of Asbury Park. The contest in Monmouth is given «orne zest because a Sheriff is to be elected. The eounty offices have been always in control, of the Democrats. The Republi cans think that it is about time for them to win. There are some excellent men mentioned on both sides, and this will invite a sharp contest for the nomina tion and a lively one for the election. Former Assemblyman David D. Denise, now the president of the State Board of Agriculture, is out for vindication. He did not get returned to the House of Assembly, through, as he argues, treachery, and now wants another cnanee. ο. w. imnser, a new man m politics, who was mentioned for the Assembly last year, is the young men's candidate. Assemblyman Snyder ot Shewsbury would not object to drawing the juries for a few years. These two Republicans are not particularly in love with eaeli other, and, for injuries real and imaginary, they are going to fight a political duel this year. Captain Ben jamin Griess, a distant relative of the Governor, thinks the title of Sheriff would be better than that of captain, because "Cap'n" is a common salute in Monmouth. The last name to be add ed to the list is John Hibbard, of Nep tune. On the Democratic side the man thought to be tn the lead is the present Deputy Sheriff, Houston Fields. "Some say he is slated for the nomina tion. Even if he is, there are others going into the convention, with more or less strength. They are Dr. William Mc Millin gf Millstone, William Joline, Long Branch, Captain Allan L. McCabe of As bury Park, who has been a prominent figure in the Board of Freeholder? for several years, and Joseph L. Burtlle of Howell. Fortner Speaker Jam-es J. Bergen, of 'Somerset County, is the candidate for Comgre»». He has no oppoeition s>o far, and although ho is known to be a gold standard man, there has been no serious ■objections to him as a casuî.'date.

KILLED INJ1E GOT Fast Passenger and Fast Freight Train Collide With Awful Effects. PARKERSBURG, W. Va., Aug. 15, 1896. —Engineer Fred Romp of Flyer No. 1, going; west Engineer William Johnson, of fast freight com'nig east. and Fireman Ruff, of the flyer, were killed this morn ing at four o'clock. In a collision at Torch, on. the· Baltimore and Ohio South western. No. 1 was running twenty-five miles late and was coming down Torch Hill when the collision occurred. * Both engines wore completely wrecked. The dead engineers were from Chilli coth, and Huff lived at Athens. Those falaily hurt are Jim Overlick, brakeman of the irti^shc, and Dick Thompson, fire irjan of the frefeht. Both are fearfully scalded and injured. Postal Clerk Organ, of Lovelarsd. Ohio, is also seriously hurt. The freight crew disobeyed orders, it is said, causing the accident. THREE FIREMEN INJURED BEVERLY, Mass., Aug:. 15, 1896.—St. Mary's Star of the Sea Church (Catholic) was almost entirely destroyed by fire this morning. When a portion of the roof dropped, in the rush of hot air over powered three firemen. They were Harry M. Smitlv Lewis A. Foss and Charles Taylor, all members of Engine No. 1. Taylor escaped without seriouâ Injury, but Foss had an arm broken in three places, besides suffering bruises on the body. Smith sustained a broken wrist. j. ne source οι me nre is sçmewriat ot a mystery, although two candles were left burning in the rear of the church, ami it is possible that the fire may have caught from these. The altar vestments were saved, but the silver altar furnish ings are in the safe in the ruins. The total loss on the building and contents will probably exceed $30,000; insurance, $0,600. FOUGHT THE HIGHWAYMEN LEOMINSTER, Mass., Aug. 15, 1S96.— Last evening at eight P. M. Henry G. Perkins of North Leominster, while re turning from Shirley to his home on Prospect street, was held up by two high waymen near the Lunenburg depot. One knocked him from his bicycle, but he re gained his feet and knocked his assail ant down three times. They then clinch ed and both fell. The other robber then shot Perkins in the leg, the ball entering below the knee. It was later extracted near the ankle. The robbers took from Perkins $150. He had $10 in a watch pocket that they did not find. He can give no description of the^men as it was dark. MRS. PAKLELLGONE TO IHE LAND.

BALTIMORE, Aug. 15, 1896.—Paul Hoff man's 4 $50,000,000 estate has found two claimants, one a resident of this city Hoffman died several years ago at Bom bay, India, without a will and without any known heirs. The English Govern ment assumed jurisdiction over the es tate, and, it is asserted, has $33,000,000 in cash and securities now on deposit in the Bank of England pending the proof of the identity of the deceased's true heirs. There is other property in India. The newly discovered claimants are Wenceslaus Janauschek of this city, and his brother. Rev. Frank Janauschek of Tallapoosa. Ga. They have put their claim in the hands of Mr. Joseph Choate of New York. Wenceslaus Janauschek states that Paul Hoffman was his uncle; that he ran away from his home in Hun gary when sixteen years of age, swearing he would never live under Austrian rule. He finally landed in India seventy-five years ago and became a trader. He was prosperous, established trading stations for thousands of miles and when an im petus was given to agriculture by the establishment of steamship lines between the faraway east and Europe, Hoffman became à planter as well as trader and acquired thousands of acres of land. When aged he made ineffectual efforts to rind his relatives, &ut they had all emigrated to other parts of the world. Francis J. Ronan, the local attorney for t^he Messrs. Janauschek, confirms the statement and believes the brothers to be the only American heirs to the $ld planter's millions.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 10, 1896-The benevolent, movement for the benefit οi pcor children inaugurated in Zurich, Switzerland, twenty years ago, has grown to such proportions and beein. emulated by so many European countries, that the American consul at Zurich has sent the State Department an elaborate r>-r*j"t on the subject of the vacation ootonjes, to wfiich school children in need of recuper ation axe taken to summer. The founder of the system was a clergyman named Bion. who found on movine to the city that trie environment m summer am not suit his own five children who were ac customed to the pure air of their native mountains. For several successive sum mers he took them away to their former home for a four weeks' vacation and fouind that they returned invariably with greatly improved health and spirits. Th.s led him to consider tne good that would accrue to the poorer children- if thej could be taken, away occasionally from the putrid air of the narrow city streets, poor food and scanty fare, The result of his study was aai advertisement which he inserted ta the Zurich da.ly press ask ing voluntary contributions to carry out the project. The first responses were discouraging, but evenrtialiy he secured subscriptions tovthe amount of Mfii. which enable».! him to send sis&y-eight boys and girls, divided into three colonies, to three points in the Canton of Apponzeil, each cotony remaining fourteen days. The growth of the movement in SwitZr erland is shown, by the fact that forty nine colonies, raimberins 1,128 children, wore ββηκ away to lâfri.Tuid the increase steadily r-omir.ucd until in 1R9Ô. 2,193 chil dren, divided into seventy-three colonies, hud a four weeks' vacation in til·© country. The means of the managing committees not being <qtral to all the demands, an other division of the movement which has now been in operation sixteen, years was started. This provides for the issue of fresh milk and bred twice a day'to the poor children as a compensation for the loss of their vacation trip. This aid has already been extended to 28,246 children. In Germany 125 cities have tio-w adopted the Bion system of colonies, statistic* showing 13,907 German child rem so cared for in 1SSS. ami »,»5 in 1S95. Spain. Italy. Atmria-Huiigary. "France, The Netherlands. Kregland. Denmark, Belgium and Russia have taken up the movement, and on *Μβ· continent the Ar gentine Hepublic and some localities of the United States have begun the experi ment with unqualified success. In Switzerland close attention is paid τ ο me oeiïents derived irom ;:ie^ change from the perkxtie outjmes, araft scientists have found that the Increase in weight ot the colony children· has been from .seven to eight. pounds greater. Observa tions on thirty-four children showed great increase in the number of the blood cor puscles and coloring matter chie to these vacations. The children are always ac companied to the colonies by their teach ers and remain under their supervision. One of the Zurich colonies has· been 'trans formed into a regular sanitarium. where last year 208 children were car<"d tor cut side of vacation time between May ared November. The means of support of* the Swiss colonies are furnished prlncipaily by voluntary cant-rfbuitons, but the State an·,! municipal governments also assist. A part of the profit? derived from the Federal alcohol monopoly is contributed to the colonies and in Zurich theatrical performances, concerts, fairs and other entertainments are eiven in winter to swell the colony fund. POPULIST CAMPAIGN BOOK Devoted Entirely to Cnrrency—Large Sized Pretentions. WASHINGTON. Aug. 15, 18%.—The Pop ulist party campaign handbook for 1S96 •has just appeared. It is a book'of 313 pages and differs from the handbooks of j the older political organizations in that ; it is devoted to the single subject of j money. The preface declares that "by a ! careful reading of the book any intelli gent person can become thoroughly equip ped to write, speak or act upon the most vital subject now connected with practi cal human welfare." and further that the nioney question has now pretty clear ly become a definite science, and the book contains the most important data relating to it with special reference, of course, to the United States at this time. The book comprises thirty chapters, with twelve appendices, the last of the latter giving the money planks of po litical platforms running as far back as 3836. As might have been expected, the ! principal chapter in the book is devoted ; to a consideration of the "Crime of 1873." ' under the title of "Demonetization." which runs through nearly one-third of ; its pages. It goes into the history of j the legislation of that year, together with j that of the acts relating to the issues ' of bonds thereto, to demonstrate that the j ; striking down of silver was part of a long : conceived plan originating in Europe and j I carried out In this country under the di I rection of Senator Sherman. Much atten | tion is paid to the bond sales of the pres ent administration, which are treated by the authors as "conspiracy." FORECASTER DUNN'S GOOD NEWS The Very Hot Weather Over lor Tht« Setio». NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 1896—"The hot weather, the real hot weather of the last week kind is over for this summer," said Forecaster Dunn this morning. "Of course there will be hot days, but not such a protracted heat as during the past nine or ten days." The weather this morning ie fair over the entire country, except for a little cloudiness in the New England States and small showers in the Northwest. There are no storms in sight, and unless sudden chages take place the weather today and tomorrow will he fair.

JEALOUSY CAUSED THE TROUBt® Tbe Second Company's Conduct at Camp Boynton to be In· yestigated. There is trouble ia the Ba'utalieo. of the Boys' Brigade of New J«»sey. Tl>e trouble is the outcome of a jealousy which ha* existed between the Fourth Company of the Bergen Reformed Church and the Second Company, formerly of the First Presbyterian Church, for some time. The·· two companies vied with each other in trying to gain the admiration and patron age of the society people of the Keighrt», Not long ego the Second Company were compelled to vacate its quarters at the First Presbyterian Church because the members of the congregation did not like the martial sound of 'the drum and the life mingling with the sacred oharat of hymns. The boys tried to retain their quarters, but the feeling was so strong against th€m tha/t fh^V wfciKr1f£VT»r oWt ΜΛ-α» J^nnrirntm quarters in Armory Hall at the Junction. During the week of the anmial encamp ment the time was taken up mostly by these two companies, who etmiggied for Lhe supremacy m the matter of drills and appearance. The result was an out burst an<l the Second Company iefï. camp, A meeting of the officers of the battalion was held and the Second Company was expelled. Now that the boys are home from camp the struggle is on again and will in all probability continue to fur nish gossip for the remainder of the battalion until one of the companies cries quit. The members of the Second Company say that partiality w,as shown their rivals, while rhe Fourth Company claimed that such was. not the case and say that th« Second Company is only jealous of the good showing they made at dress parade on Governor's Day. The boys of the Second Company had boasted that they would outdrili the Fourth Company, but this they failed to do and to vent their feeling they circulated reports that were not true concerning the Fourth Com- , pany. An investigation, will, be made by the authorities of the Battalion and the re sult will most likely be the refusal of the remainder of the companies to recog nize the Second Company as a voting fac tor in the Battalion conferences.
