ENDS ITS WORK
Royal Arcanum’s Grand
Council Closes Its
Annual Session
BIENNIAL PLANS FAILED
New Officers Installed and
Grand Regent’s Appoint
ments Made.

(Special to “The Jersey City News.”
LAKEWOOD, May- S, 1902.—“Twenty |
thousand members on May 1, 1903/ is to
be the slogan of Grand Regent Horace I.
Bowne. of the Grand Council of New Jer
sey, Royal Arcanum, during the present
term. That is the mark set by him for
the members to achieve, and was so an
nounced by the Grand Regent on his
again assuming the chair just previous to
the closing of the twentieth annual ses
sion of the Grand Council, Tuesday after
noon, in Knights of Pythias Hall. “Truth,
Strength and Power: On to the twentieth
century mark; if we make the effort we
will succeed,” is to be the wratchword of
the Grand Council.
The newly elected officers were installed
in a most impressive manner by Deputy
Supreme Regent Leisenring, of Pennsyl
vania. assisted by Past Grand Regent
Lathy, also of Pennsylvania, who acted
as Supreme Guide.
After th§, installation. Grand Regent
Bowne announced the following appoint
ments:—
Supervising Deputy Grand Regents—
Jeptha Van Vliet, New-ark; E. W. Bie
* seeker. Hasbrouck Heights; F. H. Walls,
Vineland; G. Harold Porter, Jersey City;
H. R. Carpenter, Ridgefield Park: E. M.
Searing, Dover; F. J. Badgley, Montclair;
J. J. Ready, East Orange; R. P. Van
Zandt, Jersey City; T. B. J. Burd, Flem
ington; W. C. Farmer, Jersey City: E. R
Downing, Arlington: S. C. Hamilton,
Bloomfield; Arthur Herington, Madison;
L. A. Gibley, Summit; G. E. Titterington,
Orange’; R. H. Maddocks, Jersey City; C.
F. Lane, Long Branch; W. T. Tuttle, Jer
sey City.
-x x . . _ T"_ A_1„„A
ances—W. Holt Apgrar. Trenton; C. fc.
Brady, Phillipsburg; John J. Erwin, Jer
sey City.
Committee on Finance and Returns—A.
W. Rand, Plainfield: Charles H. Day.
Westfield: Frederick J. Bitter, Hoboken.
Committee on State of the Order—James
Rodgers, Cranford; Milton P. Hayward,
Passaic; W. C. McKeever. Rutherford,
Harry R. Ward, Jersey City, and W, J.
Morrison, Bayonne.
Much discussion ensued when the com
mittee on laws reported adversely on the
resolution presented by W. L. Dickinson
Council, of Jersey City, to abolish dual
office-holding. The only instances of dual
office-holding in the Grand Council are
when the Grand Regent and Grand Vice
Regent have been elected as Supreme
Representatives. This has been done in
former years and was done again yester
day. For a time it looked as though the
resolution would be adopted despite the.
fact that the committee on laws had re
ported it unfavorably, but Past Supreme
Regent W. Holt Apgar, who is chairman
of the committee on laws, in a masterly,
logical speech, turned the tide of opinion
and the resolution was almost unanimous
ly defeated.
The attempt to pass a resolution provid
ing for biennial sessions of the Grand
Council also met with defeat, the commit
tee to whom it was referred reporting it
adversely.
The Supreme Trustees, to whom was
referred the resolution of Fanwood Coun
cil, asking that Royal Arcanum Councils
be instituted in San Juan, Porto Rico,
and in the other island possessions of the
United States, reported that the Supreme
Council already had the matter under ad
visement, and the resolution therefore
was withdrawn.
The sum of $400 was voted to be ex
pended in entertaining the Supreme
Council at its next session, which is to be
held in Atlantic City, and after listening
to addresses by the Supreme officers
present, the session, which had been a
harmonious one, came to an end.
Nearly all the members of the Grand
Council then drove out to George Gould’s
Georgian Court and witnessed the polo
match between the Lakewoods and Rock
aways.
GEORGE 0. OSBORN HONORED
Columbia's Directors Fittingly Re
organize His Good Work
The Board of Directors of the Columbia
Building and Loan Association gave a
dinner last evening in the Jersey City
Clubhouse. Mr. Osborn was president of
the association for sixteen years, and a
member for each year gathered about
the table. They were beside Mr. Osborne.
E. D. Van Winkle. E. R. Rule, W. A
Smith, John H. Coyle. A. W. Wanamaker.
M. B. Coughlin, J. A. Gordon, Thomas
Howe, Thomas W. Coyle, A. H. Under
Hill. Harry L. Ward, William Werther,
J. H. Duryea, H. F. Relnhard and Elmer
Underhill.
After the company had thoroughly dig- i
cussed the excellent menu prepared by
the Jersey City Club steward. President
Van Winkle presented Mr. Osborn with a
handsomely bound set of resolutions and
James A. Gordon, the counsel of the as
sociation, presented him with a silver
loving cup. Both made addresses eulo
gistic of Mr. Osborn’s work in behalf of
the association. John H. Coyle, the sec
retary. said that during the sixteen years
Mr. Osborn was president, the receipts
had risen from $42,000 to $240,000 last year.
Besides these Mr. M. B. Coughlin. Mr.
H. F. Relnhard and Mr. Thomas Coyle
spoke and said many pleasant uilngs
v about Mr. Osborn. It is not often given
to a man during his life time to hear
how much people think of him.
PECULIAR CONDUCT OF A PRISONER
Patrolman Keefe of the Communipaw
avenue station arrested a man who gave
his name as Stewart Steele, of Shamokin,
Pa., last night on Communipaw avenue
because he was acting In an Insane man
ner. After Steele had been put In a cell
he undressed himself, taking ofT every
stitch of his clothing and stretched him
self on the stone floor to go to sleep. He
slept that way unnoticed for several
hours. When he was discovered he was
almost perished. The police believe Steele
to be demented.

BAIRD MENACED
Some of His Staunchest Sup
porters Threaten to Re
volt Against His
Dictations.
(Special to “The Jersey City News.”
CAMDEN, May 8, 1902.—In his anxiety to
make peace with the fractious elements
of the party that have contested his lead
ership fey years, it now looks as if State
Assessor David Baird has gone to the
other extreme, and is likely to have a new
fight on his hands, in the shape of an in
surrection among his own forces. J. Al
pheus Vans*nt’s announcement of his
Congressional candidacy yesterday was at
first regarded with amusement by the
Baird followers, and they scoffed subse
quently at the suggestion that the Van
sant candidacy was backed up by the Re
publican leader and was slated to receive
the support of the machine. When this
fact became generally understood the
amusement was changed to amazement
and indignation, and men who for years
have stood by Baird in defeat and victory
began to talk revolt.
Such men as Sheriff John Wesley Sell,
Prosecutor Frank T. Lloyd, Speaker
William J. Bradley and County Clerk
Frank Patterson were quoted last night |
as having declared that if Baird persisted '
in the nomination of Vansant to oppose
Loudenslager for Congress in the First
District they would take the lead in &
mutiny against the machine.
For years Vansant has been Baird’s
most bitter political opponent. He led th^
independent movement which turned the
organization out of control in the city a
few years ago, and recently headed an
UUICl 1CUIH aguiiioi. --•
bfnation. That he should allay himself
with the machine he has fought for the
sake of obtaining a nomination is re
garded as no less amazing than that
Baird should have offered him the sup
port of the organization, f
That Baird is anxious for peace is wcU
known. Within the last week overtures
were made to former Mayor Cooper B.
Hatch that Under Sheriff Christopher J.
Mines be accepted as a compromise can
didate for sheriff, and that Hatch run for
Congress against Loudenslager. - These
overtures were refused, and the seating
of Vansant is now looked upon as a des
perate move on the part of the machine
leader to save the shrievalty candidacy
of Senator Herbert W. Johnson from
early wreck. The organization men who
oppose Vansant’s selection announced
last night that they would exhaust every
effort to induce Vansant to retire from
the contest and refuse the nomination.
It Vansant persist and Baird is able to
control the machine, the campaign issue
in the Republican fight for nominations j
will be clearly defined. There is no long- j
er any question but that Hatch, to aid
his candidacy for Sheriff, will unite with
the Loudenslager forces, and that Van
sant for Congress and Johnson for Sher
iff will head the machine slate. No op
position has yet developed to Speaker
Bradley's Senatorial candidacy, but it is
understood that the Hatch-Loudenslager
combination will name a full County
ticket to be presented to the convention.
Loudenslager spent yesterday in Cam
den looking after his fences. He refused
to be interviewed, but it was admitted by
his followers that the object of his visit
was to perfect the terms of his compact
with Hatch. The latter has already
opened headquarters for the campaign,
and the fight is to be waged without in
terruption through the summer. Both the
Loudenslager and Baird literary bureaus
are working overtime grinding out cam
paign arguments for the newspapers fa
orable to their respective causes, and a
billboard war is to be inaugurated within
a few weeks.
The Hatch-Loudenslager combination is
preparing to assume the aggressive in the
fight, and as a first move there is talk of
an investigation into the management of
the County and city officers controlled by
machine Republicans. The proposed in
crease of nineteen points in the city tax
rate is charged up against the Baird fac
tion as due to gross extravagance, if
nothing worse, and is asserted to be en
tirely unnecessary if the public affairs
were properly administered.
EQUINE ARISTOCRACY
Beantifnl Horses That Will Appear
at the Circns,
Horse-loving New York, where the
horse show is the great society event of
the year, well-nigh went crazy over the
quartette of cakewalking horses with the
Adam Forepaugh and Sells Brothers
Enormous Shows United when they exhi
bited at Madison Square Garden last
year. For the first time In the history
of the Garden, the audience Insisted upon
an encore of a circus act. Encores are
never called for or expected by the au
dience at a circus and they are never
permitted by the managers. But in the
case of the cakewalking horses the au
dience would simply not let the perform
ance proceed until the beautiful horses
and their famous riders came out again
and repeated their wonderfully pretty per
formance. They are still with the shows
and were received in the same manner at
the Garden at the regular annual open
ing of the shows this spring, and sill be
seen here when these great consolidated
shows exhibit on Saturday, May 24, in
Jersey City, at Boulevard and St. Paul’a
avenue.
STABLE BURNED BY LAMP EXPLOSION
The Stable of James S. Hunt, at Jack
son afed Communipaw avenues on ‘the
Heights, was burned la*t night owing to
the explosion of an oil lantern. The
building was almost gutted, but the two
horses were saved from the flames by
the firemen.

Truckman McCormack Ac
cused by Chief Conway—
Business of the Board
In the absence of President Niblett at
the meeting of the Fire Commissioners
last evening Commissioner Angel was
chosen to preside.
The New Jersey Fire Al>rm Company,
which has auxiliary boxes in different
sections of the city connected with the
regular wires of the department, and
which was brought to task by the Com
missioners at a previous meeting for not
living up to its contract with the depart
ment in furnishing thirteen new fire alarm
boxes, sent a communication to the Board
agreeing to fulfill its contract and do any
thing the Commissioners wish them to do
in the future. This was satisfactory to
the Commissioners and they expect to
place the new non-interfering boxes the
company will furnish in prominent sec
tions of the city.
Archibald A. Campbell, of No. 343 Pacific
avenue, sent a letter to the Board thank
ing the members of No. 10 Engine Com
pany for the excellent work they did in
saving his home from destruction by fire
two weeks ago.
A communication from the Twelfth
Ward Democratic Club was received, ask
ing the Board to place large signs over
all the alarm boxes in the city bearing
instructions as to how to send in an
alarm for a fire.
Clerk Charles Esterbrook reported that
since February 1 he had issued 92 permits
to sell kerosene oil and 115 to sell benzine
and turpentine.
Chief John Conway has instructed the
captains of the different companies to
begin and report all delinquents who have
not secured permits and are violating the
law.
iuc vaiYumic kjli v-Yjmpaiiy vYao fc, i» tn
a permit to keep 200 barrels of kerosene
and 160 barrels of gasoline at its supply
station on the west side of Tonnele ave
nue, south of the D., & W. Railroad.
The oil and gasoline will be stored in
iron and steel tanks.
Heist & Young asked permission to
store odl in quantities not exceeding 1,000
barrels in the rear of Hauck’s coal yard
at the foot of Johnston avenue. The ap
plication was referred to Chief Engineer
John Conway, who will report whether* it
is safe or not to issue the permit.
John J. Symes,, twenty-three years of
age, of No. 511 Jersey avenue, made ap- '
plication for appointment as a fireman.
A letter was received from the captains
of the department asking that they be
allowed to remove the wide black band
that encircles their new “Prince Henry” j
caps so that they cqn wear their badges
on the caps. The request was granted,
but the silver cord will remain.
The Board then adjourned until Wed
nesday evening. May 14.
Chief Engineer John Conway preferred
charges against Truckman John F. Mc
Cormack, of No. 1 Truck, and detailed to
No. 3 Truck, for drunkenness, using pro
fane language and fighting with the men :
in his company’s quarters on the after- \
noon of May 24. McCormack will appear j
for trial before the Commissioners next
Wednesday evening, and it is doubtful
if he will be retained in the department,
as he is an old offender.
