That a warrant be or dered drawn on the City Treasurer in favor of that officer in-the sum of $1,500, to transfer that amount from license receipts to the credit of the Board of Street and Water Commissioners for the payment of miscellaneous claims. , My reason for taking this action is, that’at a joint conference between the Street and Water Commissioners and your Board, at which 1 was present, the matter of providing funds for the Street and Water Board along the lines contemplated by the above resolution was fully discussed, and, it was deter mined that the Board of Finance would muke such provision as they considered proper from time to time in the matter.

[Special to “The Jersey City News.”] ASBUIiY PARK, July Z, 1902.—The assertion that gambling is carried on quietly at the Long Branch club houses which were closed up by the authorities several seasons ago, is made by some local residents, who claim that a number of young men here have visited these'places. One of the resorts which is said to have resumed its former busi ness on a small scale is the Pennsylvania Club, of Phil Daly fame. Supreme Court Justice Franklin Fort held over the last grand jury in order to have them ready for just such an emergency as this. Justice Fort was seen at his summer home in Spring Lake yesterday afternoon. He said that it was a most difficult task to procure evidence against such resorts. He re fused to declare positively that he would convene the grand jury, but said in un mistakcable terms that gambling will not be tolerated anywhere within his jurisdiction. Said he: “Gambling was not tolerated at Long Branch last year and I will not allow it now. Early this spring applica tions for licenses were made by the club houses. “At that time the express agreement was made that there would be no gam bling and a written agreement was en tered into—a most ' unusual thing. Reputable lawyers appeared for the club house proprietors and assured the court that no game of chance would be allowed on the premises. “It was also stipulated, as an evidence of good faith, that Sheriff Davis could inspect the premises at any and all times. The beginning of the season he did make a tonr of the club houses and found everything satisfactory. “The resumption, therefore, of the il legal games is not only an infraction of the law, but gross contempt of the court, and cannot fail to attract judicial atten tion.” “GAMBLE BRAVELY.” Recorder Advises Broker’s Er rand Boy to Eschew Crap and Deal in Wheat. < _ Among the boy crap shooters ar raigned before Recorder Stanton in the Hoboken police court this morning was a well dressed little chap, who said he was Joseph Grube, fourteen years old, of No. 224 Garden street. “Do you do anyhting for a living?” inquired the Recorder. “Yes, sir. I am employed in a broker’s office in Wall street.” “A broker?” repeated the Court, sur prised. “You don’t mean to say that a Wall street broker finds time to shoot craps on the street. You’ll be thrown out of Wall street if they find you out. You ought to be meddling with wheat instead of dice. Now, you must stop this crap shooting. Do you hear? If you don’t I’ll send you away where you’ll not have a chance to play the game for some time to come.” As the young prisoner told the truth the Recorder let him off with a fine of $2 .
