PRESIDENT CASE’S WELCOME Mr. Linsley Reviews His Own and the School’s History —Dr. Barnes’s Witty Speech. It was a remarkable gathering in the assembly hall of Public School No. 1 last night. There on the platfobm were Prin cipal George H. Linsley and Mrs. Eve land, who had completed over fifty years of service as public school teachers, and in front of them were grandfathers and grandmothers, fathers and mothers whom they had taught. It was the eleventh an nual reunion of Public School No. 1 As sociation, gotten up in honor of Principal Lin3iey's eightieth birthday anniversary. It was a touching and pretty sight to. see some of our most distinguished towns men who, fifty years ago, sat trembling before “the old man,” “Learning to trace the day’s disasters on his morning’s face,” now vieing with each other in do ing honor to him. Among the “old boys” on the platform were Mr. Edward F. C. Young, the Rev. Dr. C. R. Barnes, P. F. Wanser, Dudley Flemming, Dr. L. J. Gordon, David D. Daly, Prosecutor James S. Erwin and I. W. Heck, and as guests Mayor1 Hoos, John A. W’alker, Superintendent Henry Snyder and many other prominent people. Mr. Charles F. Case presided. As Mrs. Eveland stepped on the platrorm Mr. Case stepped forward and greeted her with a hearty kiss. The audience clapped their hands and laughed loud and long as the ■ venerable lady teacher blushed at this unexpected onslaught. After an opening prayer by the Rev. C. R. Barnes of Centenary M. E. Church President Case welcomed the guests. The members of the association, he said, loved these reunions, where they met their old schoolmates again. He pointed to the proud record of the school, which had turned out bankers, lawyers, merchants and men who had achieved success in various walks in Hfe. “From our ranks we have only one min ister (turning to Mr. Barnes). As for lawyers we have lost count. Above twen ty of them is what No. 1 is responble for. (Laughter.) We have six doctors; two or three are here tonight, and I hope you won't need their services. (Laughter.) In Congress we had Mr. Fuller and the late W. D. Daly. We have had Senators and Assemblymen. We have had a presi dent of a bank (Mr. E. F. C. Young), a Mayor (P. F. Wanser), a Sheriff (William Heller), and many of our boys went to the war, returning officers, ranging from a general to a lieutenant.” Mr. Case closed with a warm tribute to Mr. Linsley, whom he called their teacher and friend. For several minuten the veteran teacher j could not gain a hearing for the applause which broke out as he arose to reply. He had tears in his voice and In his eyes when he began:— “My dear old boys and girls.—I should feel very happy tonight, and I do. 1 have made no preparation for a speech, and I tell you that straight.” Mr. Linsley then talked of No. 1 his tory, beginning when he was appointed. The principal then, he said, was Hr. Al bert T. Smith, with himself in the male department; Miss May Westly, Cath arine Wilson, Mrs. Eveland and Miss Hoy In the girls’ side. That was in 1848. He told an affecting story of Mrs. Eve land, who came from Brooklyn each day with her twin girls. “She brought," he said, smiling at Mrs. Eveland, who was sitting nearby, “these twin little fellows, they were both girls— (Laughter)—and 1 escorted her to the ferry and went across with her. The tots got so tired and I took one on each arm and went that way.” (Laughter.) He talked of the old methods of procuring teachers, when he had to go teacher hunt ing, and those of today, and then got down to his pet hobby, punishment in the schools. He contended that with the ex tra facilities today there was not an equivalent in the results. In the essential studies the children were not making such good progress as they did thirty years ago. Then they had to work or get out, and the parents backed up the teachers. Nowr you can’t get fathers to do that. "I'll give you an instance. I had a boy Here who was always tidy and looked Mice, yet he was the veriest rascal you ever saw. There was no peace in any de partment where he was. I sent for his father, wrho told me to take the stick to (him. I took him before the class and I gave It to him good. (Laughter a-nd ap plause.) Them’s my sentiments. (Re newed laughter.) I wrish right here to say about the teachers of the school that a more honest, faithful, painstaking corps never existed. I won’t say any more. There'are some gentlemen here who want to wear out their eloquence. (Laughter.) I can’t say enough to tell you of my hap piness in seeing my old boys and girls again and I am very grateful to you. The surroundings tonight are such that I can't look around on those men who stood be side me fifty years ago with—emotion—I— may—not—address—you again. Every pul sation and fibre of my nature beats with gratitude. Language—Inadequate—but such, as it is—the best I have—God bless you.” Tears were glistening in his eyes as he resumed his seat amid prolonged ap plause. President J. J. Mulvaney of the Board of Education, was down for an address, but a recent bereavement kept nim away. In his place Mr. John W. Heck read a number of letters from “old boys,” re gretting their absence. Out of about fifty he selected those from W. C. Tailmage, H. L. Richards, Jr., G. W. Lanning, and others. One from Mr. Hamilton Wallis, of the law firm of Wallis, Edwards and Bumsted, provoked roars of laughter when it said that the writer couldn’t some because he had lumbago. “Tell that,” he wrote, “to Ed Young and he’ll call it plumbago, and might take it off my back and use in his factsry." A touching scene followed. Mr. Heck read a loving letter from Mr. Linsiey’s wife, in which she spoke of his domestic virtues and his conduct as a husband, father and companion. It was a surprise to the aged principal, who pressed his handkerchief to his eyes. Dr. Gordon and Mr. Case patted him kindly on his back and with an effort he looked up and smiled through his tears. Superintendent Snyder extended con gratulations. as he said, in his official ca IMtcity to Mr. Linsley. It was a proud day for the teacher, he said, to receive such a demonstration. Fifty years ago a teacher had no standing and this gathering showed the esteem in which a teacher is held by the public. Mr. Snyder spoke of the changes which had taken place within the experience of Mr. Linsley and Mrs. Eve land. They had seen even great-great grandchildren come to school, and a great-grandchild of Mrs. Eveland was teaching in this city today. In closing the speaker referred to them as jolly pedagogues who he hyped would still live a long time. Dr. Leonard J. Gordon, historian of the association, read an interesting number of reports about the early history of No. 1, which was founded in 1835, and with the jail and town hall formed one build ing. The property on which it was built, he said, was given by the Associates of the Jersey Company. From the museum of the Free Library the doctor produced an old music book used in the early days, and read the first report of Principal Smith, which contained quaint statements about the attendances, one of which was that out of 74 absentees, some were kept at home, some were in a store, some in other places, leading useful occupa tions, and some had moved from the city and had moved back again. Dr. Gordon read a long roll of "old boys" who died during the Civil War. Prosecutor James S. Erwin made a brief address congratulating Mr. Linsley on his good health and dilating on the nobility of his calling. Mayor Hoos said he was deeply sensi ble of the honor and privilege of being present on such sacrfd ground. “Mr. Daly came to me,” said his Honor, "and said we needed a new school on the site of No. 1. I was weak and the result is here tonight. (Applause.) As the Mayor of your city I deem it a privi lege to voice the sentiments of every man in the city towards you, Mr. Linsley, and X congratulate you, in the name of the city, for the seed you have sown which has raised such men. I see Dr. Gordon here, who erected a monument by his ef forts in building a Free Library. (Ap plause.) Here you have President Young and ex-Mayor Wanser and other well known men to congratulate you. I hope your days will be long, and I say “well done, good and faithful servant. God bless you, Mr. Linsley.” (Applause.) Rev. C. R. Barnes made the final ad dress and remarked that he was the curi osity of the evening because he was the only ministerial product of the old school. "There are plenty of lawyers, though, who practice, but only one minister who preaches. While we remember the boys, who of us doesn't remember the girls? I remember a black haired little girl go ing up York street. I remember the touch of that girl’s soft hand as it stole into mine and comforted me with tears In her eyes while I was aching with the pains of chastisement received from I won’t say whom. (Laughter.) As I re view it now, what a magnificent army of girls were once in No. 1 and who have developed into womanhood. They kept us boys.In trim and, like the slaves In the Roman triumph, they whispered in our ears, ‘Remember that thou art a man.’ They kept us humble, at least tried to, and I say, ‘God bless the women of No. 1.’ ” (Applause.) During the evening Miss Mary E. Cur rie sang several soprano solos, Mr. W. F. Brown, a baritone solo, and a quar tette consisting of Messrs. A. .T. McLean, E. Blanchard, George E. Costello and W. T. Dey, sang part songs. Mrs. F. H. Bennett accompanied at the piano. At the close of the exercises the guests filed past Mr. IJnsley and Mrs. Eveland and shook hands. Refreshments were served downstairs afterwards. MR. CASSATT RE-ELECTED PRESIDENT P. R. R. Directors Held Their An nual Election of Officers Yesterday The directors of the Pennsylvania R.

HEAVY TRAFFIC ON PLANK ROAD Great Change Since the Opening to Business Men on the Eine. Since the opening of the Newark Plank Road the traffic, particularly with vehi cles, has been unusually heavy, while by the trolley cars there has been a corres ponding increase over the number of pas sengers during a similar given period over the road. These facts are contained in a report to President E. F. C. Young by Su perintendent Jackson. The opening has made a wonderful change In the business of certain mer chants along the line of the road and par ticularly among the keepers of road houses. To them the few months when the road was closed meant not a dollar re ceived beause teamsters who didn’t pass that way couldn’t possibly spend any money. Now it 'is different and the road house keeper’s heart is gay. TRAFFIC ON ASPHALT Mayor Hoos this morning received a letter from Mr. F. A. Reed, of No. 32 Highland avenue, complaining of the con tinual violation of the ordinance regulat ing traffic on asphalt streets. He says that heavy traffic constantly flows over the newly asphalted roadway and in few instances arp the tires the width pre scribed by law. Mr. Reed says he has just paid an assessment* of $125 for the asphalting in front of his residence. Mayor Hoos referred the complaint to Chief of Police Murphy. An Old am Well Tried Remedy.

ATTRACTIVE SPECTACLE Many Out of Town Horsemen Display Fine Turnouts in the Line. The .hundreds of members of the Hud son County Road Drivers’ Association are very well pleased that the weather today is just right for their annual parade on the Boulevard. The parade, which is far ahead of last year’s event, began at half past two this afternoon from in front of the quarters of the Ninth Ward Demo cratic Club. The cozy clubhouse was a picture with its decoration of bunting and flags. In fact all the houses along the route were prettily bedecked with flags. Grand Marshal Dr. T. E. Smith made his quarters in the club house. All orders relative to line position were given out from there. There was no confusion. The participants followed instructions as to their places and when the order to move was given the line went ahead with out a hitch. The divisions rested on Glenwood ave nue and Montgomery street There were three hundred beautiful rigs in line and these made a handsome picture. The line of march was filled with spectators. Ap plause greeted -those having the finest turnouts. A feature of the parade was the number of out-of-town horsemen who took part. They came from New York, Brooklyn, Newark, Paterson, and all over the county. It was really a splen did exhibition of horseflesh and pretty rigs. Gay colors were evryw'here in the line and the harness was polished up to a. brilliancy that reflected dazzling rays in the sunlight. Dr. Farrell rode at the head of the first division. Teams, surries, single rigs of all descriptions and racing gigs followed in their respective order. The route laid out extended north along the Boulevard to "West Newark avenue, where a turn was made, and the procession continued along the big roadway to the Speedway, which begins near Fiftieth street, Bayonne. The reviewing stand is in place there, and all the judges who are to pick out the prize winners are out of town horsemen. It is more than likely that this afthrnoon will see some of the warmest kind of sport on the Speedway. That road has been put in splendid shape and races ’of a spirited nature are looked for. The prizes to be awarded consist of harness, blankets, whips and other articles for horsemen. These will go to those fortunate enought to win:— First, best horse and wagon driven by a lady; second, best horse and speeding wagon; third, best team and single wag on; fourth, best cob and runabout; fifth, best trap or single surry; seventh, best pony outfit. Dr. John Farrell heads the second division. The parade is over a mile in length. • TRUCK Til FINED. Minister Pleads for His As sailant, But Judge Gives a Lesson. Drivers of trucks who consider their seats thrones from which they may look down on ordinary pedestrians and even run them down, were given a lesson thi3 morning. Acting Police Justice McCor mack showed them what their -fate would be should they fall into the hands of the police. In the First Criminal Court, Harry Moore, the colored driver who was ar rested for lashing $he Rev. T. E. Mont gomery, of the John Knox Presbyterian Church, Thursday, was fined $10 and costs of court, in all $16. The penalty was light because the complainant appeared in court and pleaded for Moore. Moore is a driver for Contractor Van Keuren. In the coujrse of the parade of the Sunday school children, Thursday, he was prevented from driving into the chil dren of the John Knox Church by Mr. Montgomery, who grasped the horses’ bridle and held it while the driver rained blows on his body with the whip. Then Moore walked away. He was arrested, however, by Sergeant Booth and arraign ed yesterday before Justice McCormick. Mr. Montgomery gave his testimony as a matter of public service and he was very convincing. Moorfe asked for an ad journment until today so that he might have an opportunity of bringing witnesses in his behalf. The adjournment was granted, but no witnesses appeared for Moore except Mr. Montgomery, who pleaded for the prisoner. Moore paid the fine. ROBBED ON BAYONNE CAR Mrs. Rosie Clamowitz Has Three of Her Fellow Passenger Arrested Miss Rosie Clamowitz, of No. 9S Moore street, Brooklyn, last night caused the arrest of Harry Elkins, nineteen years old, of No. 125 Madison street; Sarah Goldberg, eighteen years old, of No. 95 East Broadway, and Ida Silverman, eigh teen years old, of No. 95 East Broadway, all of New York City, on charges of lar ceny from the person. The prisoners were held to await the action of the Grand Jury in S500 bail each. Miss Clamowitz told Acting Police Jus tice McCormick in the First Criminal Court this morning that some time be tween the time she arrived here by a Pennsylvania Railroad ferryboat and boarded a 'Bayonne trolley car and the time the car reached Claremont avenue she had been robbed of her watch. She said t^iat about five minutes before she 'missed the watoh she saw it in the hands of the prisoners and had remarked that the watch tjiey had was identical with her own. Later when she missed the watch she accused the ithree prisoners, who denied the charge. The car was stopped, howevc-r, and the four people taken’'to the station house byJPoIlcemen Sheehan. The, watch was not found ou any of the prisoners but they refused to make any statement and were held for trial, “THE SHAUGHRAUN.” How the Davis Association Will Present the Popu lar Play.

Walter Green, who Is playing the role of St. Francis Levinson in “East Lynne” with the Aubrey Stock Company at a local theatre had a funny experience last night at the close of the performance. It was funny to a number of people who were present beside Mr. Green, but he did not look at it in that light, and didn't relish the laugh his friends had at his expense any more than he did the fact that he was just an hour late to a dainty little supper a number of his friends had arranged in his honor. Mr. Green was born in this city and has several times during his theatrical career appeared to the delight o fa large portion of the population. Ever since he began an engagement with the Aubrey Stock Company Here three weeks ago he has received his full measure of applause and other marks of approbation. Last, night the house was full and Mr. Green' was warmly received. He was all the while thinking of the supper he was go ing to at the close of the performance. When the final scene came in which he was placed under arrest and the hand suffs snapped on his wrists he was se curely shackled with sure-enough “cuffs” that had been borrowed from the Second Precinct police station. He was taken off presumably to prison and the scene closed. Once oLit.Vof signt' of the audience Mr. Green threw off his character and became the hungry, un romantic man, full of anticipation for the love' feast he was invited to. Going into the property room where Charles Dias reigns supreme, Mr. Green said:— “Mr. Property Man, please unlock these cuffs. I am in a hurry to join mv friends.” "All right, Mr. Green,” replied Dias, "here you are.” He turned to get the key of tile cuffs but it was not where he thought it was. Then began a search that lasted almost an hour and the young actor was in a state of mind he does not wish to experience again. Finally they gave up hope and a messenger was despatched to the station house for a duplicate key. When he returned Mr. Green was set at liberty and he hastily removed his. make-uo and joined ms friends at the festive board. Then he told the story and his friends were in high glee. Mr. Green says he will here after insist that the key to the cuffs be placed in his pocket before he goes on the stage. NEW TESTAMENT CHAIR VACANT Prol. Mclancthon Jacobus Refuses the Call to Princeton. Professor MelanctonW. Jacobus of Hart ford Theological Seminary has declined the call to become professor of New Tes tament literature in Princeton Theologi cal Seminary, to which position he was a second time elected by the board of di rectors last commencement day. It seems that one of the directors thought that it had received an Intima tion from some source that Professor Ja cobus had changed his mind and that if called to Princeton the second time he would respond. The director so inform ed the board and forthwith Professor Ja cobus received an unanimous election. He was given a hearty greeting by all the members of the faculty, and it was thought that he would surely come, but to a member of the faculty who visited Hartford a short time since Dr. Jacobus declared that he had again decided not to leave Hartford for Princeton or McCor mick. His reasons for so concluding have not been made public. There was much disappointment in Princeton and among the friends of the seminary at this second failure. There is great need that a successor to Dr. Pur ves should be secured. This is one of the most important chairs in the Theological Seminary—one from which many of tho students in past years, during the incum bencies of Drs. Hodge and Purves, re ceived the greatest amount of material for their help in the ministry. For some reason very few of the students of the present senior class are going to the seminary. Last year many of them went to Auburn. VAN BOREN _CAUGHT Man Who Passed Checks on Morgan’s Bank Found in Phila delphia. ' _ PREPARED FOR RESISTANCE Wife Says He Stole to See Grandparents Because He Was Poor and the Banker Rich. Jawies Van Buren of No. 212 Warren stre&i, who left his&ome, accompanied by his wife, Mary, nee Rossell, last Sunday after swindling a number of merchants in this city by passing forged checks on J. Pierpont Morgan’s Wall street bank, was arrested in Philadelphia yesterday af ternoon by Detective James Larkins of the Detective Bureau of Police Headquar ters. He put up an argument against his apprehension with a brand new 38-calibre revolver, which was taken away from him after a struggle. He- tried to use the weapon to make good his escape. The young man was taken to the City Hall and locked up. When arraigned before a committing magistrate he was held to await extradition to this city. It is likely that the necessary papers will be taken out in a few days and Van Buren will then be brought to this city to stand trial on charges of swindling. The Van Surens lived-in Philadelphia under the name of Mr. and Mrs. James Bordelmay. He is a tall, delicate looking chap, of good address. Up to a week or so ago he was a trusted employe of Voreher & Wefer, printers, of No. 131 Lib erty street, New York City. Part of-his duty was the superintending of' the printing of the checks for J. Pierpont Morgan’s bank. - When he was discharged he stole a number of these blank checks, and then forged signatures to them. He found easy victims among local mer chants because of the excellent reputation he had heretofore-enjoyed. An investiga- . tion of his standing resulted in nothing: derogatory to him and his worthless checks were cashed. When he got to the end of his rope he fled the city. Holmes & Van Dyke, piano merchants, of No. 96 Montgomery street, wereamong his victims. They were swindled out of $30, and they secured a warrant for Van Buren’s arrest. The police began an in vestigation and finally located Van Buren and his wife in Philadelphia. Detective Larkins, armed with a bench warrant, went to arrest the fugitive. He called at Police Headquarters and started tp search for the man he wanted in com pany with Detectives Charles D. Sells, end James Dougherty of Philadelphia.’ They watched the post office, supposing Van Buren would go there for mail from this city. They had been "planted” but a short time when Van Buren came along. The three officers approached him and he be came alarmed. He knew Larkins. He drew a revolver from his hip pocket, but Larkins was too quick for him, and be fore he could aim Larkins and the pris oner clinched. Van Buren was disarmed and taken to jail. He refused to make any statement, but his wife, when seen after a visit she paid him, said:— “My husband and I were married five years ago. His wages were small. Time and again we had planned to visit his grandparents in Lebanon county, Pa., but our limited means prevented. James is very delicate, not long for this world, while Mr. Morgan is a very rich man. We left Jersey City for his grandparents’ last Sunday morning. He did not tell me that he had passed any forged check until we reached the. farm. He said that $200 would square up. When we came to Philadel phia last Tuesday we were planning to borrow the money from his folks and make goqd. Then the officers came and took him away.” Vah Buren himself gave no explanation. When he was searched $63.10 was found in his pockets. CEN. TRACY UNDER FIRE Testifies in the Honduras Syn dicate Despute With Shipherd. General B. P. Tracy, ex-Seeretary of the Navy, was examined this afternoon in the offices of Corbin & Corbin in the suit brought by Jacob Shipherd against the Honduras Syndicate. In this proceed ing it is charged that General Tracy, who was Shipherd’s counsel, used knowledge of certain concessions obtained from the Honduras government by Shipherd to form a rival syndicate. The point brought out todays was that General Tracy, although a members of the syndicate, didn’t know who were all his associates. Under cross-examination he said that he agreed to give $50,000 to Shipherd because he heard he was to make trouble for the syndicate. He also admitted- that he heard that Lawyers Joseph Choate, J. C. Carter and E. J. Phelps had counselled the payment of the money. The General denied that he ever had any active interest in the syndicate. He subscribed for $,000 worth of stock and that was all.

Mounted Patrolman Harmes of the Com munipaw avenue station house, had a chase after three youngsters this noon time on Kensington avenue. He got them after badly scaring the lads. The trio was robbing a cherry tree in the yard of a house on Kensington ave nue when Harmes came along. The lads saw Harmes and were unwilling to be caught. The officer‘Anally succeeded in rounding them up In a manner only known to himself. He led his horse to the station house and marcned the lads on before him. These were the cherry pickers:—John Ward, thirteen, of No. 216 Mshticello ave nue; Lincoln Trptter, thirteen, No. 7^ Reid street, and’Eflward McLean, No. 164 Vroom street.

The sudden activity in the Gallingan quarry on the Palisades, which has aroused the wrath and indignation of the friends of the plan to preserve the noble rocks in all their primitive beauty, is said to be nothing more or less than an at tempt of Tammany Hall to get a share of the money appropriated In the States of New York and New Jersey for the pur chase of the land,necessary to make the proposed Palisades Park. The Gillingan quarry, it is said, is not a paying institu tion, owing to the fact that owing to com petition the crushed stone market is over stocked and there Is no money in the busi- I ness. Brown & Flemming, of Broad and ] South streets, New York City, are promi- ' nent Tammany contractors, who have obtained control by lease or otherwise the Gillingan quarry. They are blasting out the rock and making a great show of do ing a large business, so that when the Commissioners come to condemn the land required for the park they can j claim to be doing a valuable business and ■ get a much larger amount for the prop- ! erty than it is really worth. It is said on good authority that the entire proper- ! ly, including machinery and plant is not worth over $35,000, and it has an $11,000 mortgage upon it. BOY STOLE FOR SICK MOTHER [Special to “The Jersey City News.”] PATERSON, June 8, 1901.—The love for his mother which got Robert Rlcklin, fif teen years old, in jail also got him out j again. Rickling was working away in a big silk mill when Detective Taylor arrested him on a charge of stealing lead pipe. It was pay day in the mill, and Robert's salary amounted to *3.50. He pleaded so earnestly that the detective allowed him to walk many blocks to a poor old house. The detective saw him hand his mother his unopened envelope and tlx the pillow below her head. He kissed her and said: “Mamma, I have a new job, and if I don’t get home tonight don't be wor ried.” It was afterward shown that the pipe was stolen by Rickling to buy medicine for his mother. The Recorder, with tears in his eyes, allowed the boy to go.
