The Finance Commissioners, as “The News" of yesterday intimated, worked yesterday morning and until half-past six o'clock last night and practically completed the budget for next year.

The city has to pay towards the State school fund $163,503.39. and the city’s share of the county tax is $541, 104. 83. This indicates a total tax levy of $2,768,000. The increase is more than $200,000. BOARD ALLOWANCES. The different Boards were allowed for the present year $2,554,491.92. As nearly as can be ascertained, the amount to be allowed for next year will eonsiderably grgater. The Street and Water Board appro priation. howefer, it is said, was cut below last year’s figures.

The Board of Education will get a very considerable increase on this year's appropriation, including an increase of $60,000 for teachers’ salaries and other things provided for by law. Tlie Board of Aldermen’s estimate- will be cut and likewise those of some of tlie other boards, including the City Hail Commission. SINKING FUND.

A LIE, THAT’S ALL Secretary Roberts Shows the Falsity of the “Ob server’s” Attack on the Architects. • The Hoboken “Observer” yesterday in dulged in a malignant iling at tiie State Board of Architects, which was all the more iniquitous because it was wholly false. Among other things, it said that it was openly claimed that the mem bers of the Board were using their posi tions to satisfy private grudges against other members of the profession and were turning down rivals by refusing to register them, thereby necessitating an examination which the Board could make as difficult aud as full of catch questions as it pleased. Among those whom the “Observer” claimed had been refused registration was John C. Lindsey, who was recently appointed a Tax Commis sioner by Mayor IIoos. It also mentioned the case of a young man who was em ployed by an architect and applied lor a license, but was refused registration by the Board because his employer was opposed to his recognition by the Board. Mr. Hugh Roberts, secretary of the Board of Architects, when shown the story this morning,’ declared that was ab solutely false. In proof of this he pro dueed tlie records of the Board, which showed that certificate No. 308 had been issued to James C. Lindsey, and thsit the Board had considered Mr. Lindsey's application aud had duly registered him. As to tin- young office boy, whose ap plication hau been refused. Ml'. Roberts said that his case had been referred, to Corbin «>: Corbin, counsel to the Board, aud those gentlemen hud given it as their opinion that under the law creating the Board aud defining its power, the Board could not register the young inau. From a prominent builder of this city it was learned that the Board was giving general satisfaction to architects and builders throughout the State. lie said he had not heard a single complaint against the Board aud its work express ed either publicly or in private. It was evident that the members were goiug about their duties in a conservative manner and an earnest intention to do the best thing possible for the architects and the general public. They have thus far proceeded carefully and intelligently aud are rapidly demonstrating the wis dom of the legislation which called them into being.

The police will continue to hunt for the man and may have trouble in pro tecting him after his arrest should they find them. - -♦ EASY LANDLORD.

YOUNG SCOUNDREL ESCAPES His Club, Ciriliglia'8 Spine and a Cobble Stone the Factors in the Comedy. Luigi Ciriliglia, fifty-two years old, an Italian pushcart ice cream peddler living at No. 131 Steuben street, was walking along Greene street at half-past five o'clock this morning on his way to the Morgan street dock to buy his daily sup ply of ice when a small boy, armed with a big club, sneaked up behind him, struck him a powerful blow between the shoul der blades and ran away. The Italian dropped the handles of his pushcart, swore in his native tongue, and started afterthe boy. He wasn't much of a sprinter and the boy took advan tage of that fact by turning around every few feet and making grimaces at his pursuer. The Italian, who was boiling over with indignation, picked up a cob ble stone in the middle of the street at the corner of Steuben and Greene stree s, and threw it with all his might at the fleeing boy. The stone didn’t reach the intended target. It whizzed uncomforta bly near the youngster, and struck with a resounding bang against the door of fire alarm box No. 113. SURPRISE PARTY. Then the push cart man stopped to catch liis breath, and a minute later he lost it again in the excitement attending the arrival of half a dozen companies of the Fire Department. The engines and trucks rattled down Steuben street with gongs banging, fol lowed by several hundred early morning risers. \ The Italian forgot about the boy while watching the chase of the firemen and wondered where the fire was located. So did the firemen. They asked many peo ple if they had seen smoke anywhere, but the only smoke in evidence curled out of the chimneys of factories iu the neighborhood. INVESTIGATION. Assistant Chief Lovell took in the situ ation immediately when he examined the fire alarm box and discovered that the door had been soundly thumped by some thing. John Dillon, fourteen years old, of No. 153 Railroad avenue, who witnessed the chase of the boy and the course taken by the cobble stone as it banged against the box, told Mr. Lovell all about the incident. The assistant chief was inclined to lose his temper at the first. Then he laughed loud and long. He explained to the police that the striking of the stone against the box caused au alarm to be sent in. Ciriliglia, who was standing ou the sidewalk watching the firemen and won dering what all the commotion was about was pointed out by young Dillon and placed under arrest. As lie was led away by Acting Patrolman Rodgers, the small boy who was the cause of all the trouble edged up near the Italian and grinned. Then he scooted back into the crowd and disappeared. Justice Hoos convicted the Italian in the First Criminal Court on a disorderly person charge. He considered that the ice cream peddler was more sinned against than suiuing and suspended sen tence. -A DUNCAN SOCIAL CLUB. Preyaratieus for a Trolley Ride to Carlotadt July 30.

' , ,- ■ ■. v' h THE TANK PLUGGED The Firm of Heist, Young and Angel Totally De feated by Anthony Hauck. ALL APPROACH CUT OFF Public Spirited Commissioner Buys Land to Isolate the L ' Schemers—Lafayette Delighted. * f Another effectual blow has been struck [by the property owners of Lafayette [against the pernicious oil tank x>f Messrs. [Heist/ Young and Angel, and this will doubtless be the knockout blow. Yesterday afternoon Commissioner Anthony Hauck, who has led the tight against the oil gang since the firm an nounced its intention of placing a 1,000 barrel tank in close proximity to numer ous dwellings, won the second victory for the people. His first victory was in forcing the firm off the original site picked out for the oil tank because the firm attempted to steal the-intersection of two streets. The victory won yesterday was brought about by the purchase of a large tract of land lying on Forrest street within a few rods of the present oil site. The deal wa3 consummated yesterday afternoon and Mr. Hauck took over the property from Mr. William G. Bumsted. APPROACH CUT OFF. This move, the only one possible to beat the oil tank schemers from locating their dangerous tank near dwellings, was made in order to shut off all ap proach to the oil tank. The tank can not be reached now by Heist & Young, as they would have to go over private property and this will not be allowed. The Hudson,County Gas Company owns half of Forrest street, from Halladay street to the canal. The other half is al ready open because several houses are /situated there, but north of these dwell ings the street has never been opened and it is this property that Commissioner Hauck purchased in order to block the oil gang. - This property cannot be used as a public thoroughfare, having never been opened or dedicated. The gas company has denied Heist & Young the right to cross their property and Mr. Hauck is equally determined to knock out the oil scheme as evidenced by his actions. As matters now stand the oil gang have a white elephant on their hands in the shape of a gigantic oil tank. They can not use it as originally intended. It was their purpose to fill the tank by gravity frnp; oil cars to be run in on a siding and then to fill tank wagons by the same process. WILL BOARD IT UP. Commissioner Hauek announced thnt he would board up his property to make sure that the oil gang did not operate its tank and cross his property. Ho said that the people had rights and their wishes should be respected. He contend ed that the Fire Board had no right to ignore the protests of the property own ers who petitioned the board to refuse the permit for the erection of the tank. The property owners are rejoicing over the signal victory gained over the oil lirm and particularly because Angel lias been beaten. This public servant, who insulted gentlemen by calling them - liars because they objected to the tank and who packed an indignation meeting with bums and thugs under promise to purchase two kegs of beer for them, is held up to ridicule everywhere. It was he who engineered the schemes of Heist & Young, and he declared that even the powers of heaven could not stop the oil gang from operating. /The gang of Italian laborers are still excavating alongside of the railroad em bankment for the tank. The tank lias been taken from the flat car where it lias been kept for several weeks, and placed near the excavated site. The plans of the oil firm are unknown, but it is believed that the tank will be put in plaee. defeated. The oil tank gang practically admitted defeat yesterlay when Lawyer Charles Peshall, representing the Central Rail road, for whose property ihe tank is to be located, called up Commissioner Hauek over the telephone and tried to negotiate a deal for the purchase of a part of the property the Commissioner purchased. “I understand you purchased some property back of your coal yard,” said Mr. Peshall. , “Yes,” said Mr. Hauek. “Well, I have a friend of mine named | Heist who would like to buy a piece of your laud,” said the lawyer. “You tell Heist that he cannot deal (with me.” replied Mr. Hauek. “I have lideu called a crank, a kicker and an ob structionist, and stories have been circu lated to the effect that I was fighting the oil tank for political reasons. Now, I will show these people that I did not An Old and Wall Tried Remedy. Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup for ehl’ dren teething snould always be used for children while teething.

I need it, and the oil firm can get no part of it.” “Wei!, you are a business man,” said Peshall, “and you could easily sell us a strip.” The Commissioner positively refused to deal with the oil firm. Mr. Hauck said this morning that he would never allow the oil firm to use his property. Several dayc ago tlire lawyers, whose names could not be learned, called at the map department in the City Hall and asked to kee maps of the property situ ated near the oil tank site. They were told that the property had been pur chased by Mr. Hauck. “The devil,” said one, “We are up a tree.” It was after the lawyers learned this that I'eshall atempted to purchase some property from Mr. Hauck. HOT AIRJTORIES Judge Lawrence Denies Ri diculous Stories About His Approaching Trip. Mr. Pavid W. Lawrence of this city demej today that there was any truth in tin; statement printed yesterday in a lo cal paper that he was to be a Republican nominee for Sheriff. “Rubbish,” he said to a reporter of “The News,” “I reluctantly accepted the presidency ot the New Jersey Trust Co., but since that honor has been conferred on me I am going to devote my energies tc the bank. I have no time for poli ties.” The same paper said that Mr. Law rence's tup to Europe for which he wi'l sail on Tuesday, was to meet Col. S. D. Dickinson and patch up the Shrievalty nomination.

In former years they have always stopped at a Hoboken dock, but this year they will make two landings in Jer sey City, one at the Morris street dock at 9 A. M. and at the Pavouia dock at 10 A. M. Provisions have been made to have one of Ivelaher’s bands on each barge. For the people who find nothing interesting in the modern dancing, there will be Prof. Hennessy’s music from New York. He will bring a bagpipeand a violin for the real old fashioned Irish jigging. This excursion for years has been one of the largest outings leaving Jersey City. Each year the jigging has been a special feature. The committee on ar rangements has not yet been appointed. -♦ NO BLUES FOR THE BARRYS. “ First Man to Pat on Soar Face Gets Thrown Overboard.” Residents in the neighborhood of Hen derson and Eleventh streets, were en quiring last night about the unusual number of men all going in one direction, and then returning with the same kind of bundles. The procession kept up un til late in the night. ■-» The mystery is explained by the fact that every able-bodied man in the Horse shoe is expected to appear in a new hat tomorrow and to carry a cane in the Wil liam if. Barry Association outing. Last night the hats were distributed, thus causing the crowds to converge to one point. The genial Alderman said last night ‘‘Tis sorry I feel for the man that stays at home on Sunday because he'll be left all alone with nothing but women and children in the town.” The association will go to Witzel’s Point View Grove to spend the day. A fine steamer will convey The party to the grove and immediately on arriving break fast will be served and then the fun will begin. When you want to sec good practical jokes and jokesthat will lie ta ken good humoredly, go with the Barrys. The Hon.

On Sunday we’re out for pleasure, and pleasure we’ll have, The man who hrst puts on a sour face gets thrown overboard.” • Fully one thousand will be on board when the steamer leaves the dock. Af ter the games are over at the grove the dinner will be served. The arrangement committee have put forth every effort to make this the banner affair of the asso ciation. • -♦ DROWNED BOY BURIED.

In both counties there are a number of trades unions that be long to their respective county bodies but are not affiliated with a national body. A resolution embodying the proposi tion was submitted, and after considera ble discussion was left over for consid eration at another meeting of the joint committees to be held in Hudson Coun ty, subject to the call of the chair. It read:— That we agree to recognize any member of the different trades in each other's respective localities, provided that they carry the Nation al Building Trades’ Council card live up to the laws in letter awl spirit covering the jurisdiction in which they may l>e working; and we further recommehd that any member of the different allied trades working in each other’s jurisdic tion shall be subjected to the orders of the agent of the respective trades having authority in that jurisdiction, subject to the orders of the central bodies.

THE PARTY UNITED Democrats Hope to Regain Control of the Third Congressional Dis trict. JUDGE W. T. HOFFMAH’S YIEIfr Howell Will Be Opposed by Geissenhainer and a Brisk Fight Is on Hand. Assemblyman William T. Hoffman, at Monmouth, was in town this morning, and with a few friends chatted about politics in the Third Congressional Dis* trict. From his point of view, and tha Judge is thoroughly au courant with tha doings of wicked Monmouth, the FaF campaign bids fair to be a very lively one so far as the Democrats are concern* ed. This Third Congressional District in cludes the counties of Middlesex, Ocean and Monmouth, with a population of 194,767. At the last Gubernatorial elec tion in 1901, the total vote was 34,713, and the Republican plurality 1,106. Tho present Congressman from that District, Benjamin F. Howell, of New Brunswick, who was electedin 1900 by a plurality of 5,505, will be renominated and the Republicans, according to the Judge, are confident of his return. PREDICTS 3,000 MAJORITY. “I figure that this time he will get a plurality of 3,500 or 3,000 at the very least,” said Judge Hoffman, and he explained that Ocean would give Howell 1,500; Middlesex, 500. and Monmouth, from 500 to 1,000. Judge Hoffman ad mitted that there would be a stiff fight against Howell because the Democrats were making strong efforts to secure former Congressman Jacob A. Geissen hainer, of Monmouth, one of the most popular men in lite district. A few of the party, he said, were disposed to in duce J. A. Harrison, of Lakewood, also a strong man, to run, but the Democrats generally want Geissenhainer, who rep resented the district from 1891 to 1895. DEMOCRATS UNITED. It is explained that Congressman How ell’s victory over Mr. Bergei* was be cause of disunion in the Democratic ranks. All difficulties have uow_been adjusted and the Democrats of all three conuties are confident they can again bring the third district into the Demo cratic fold: BOULEVARD TREES Easily Procured From War den Ryan’s County Nursery at Snake Hill. There are many places along the Boulevard which could be greatly beauti fied by the planting of young trees. To do this would entail a considerable amount of expense to the Boulevard Commissioners, had 11 ey to purchase the trees from a nurseryman in the ordi nary way. An extraordinarily fine op portunity to purchase these trees at small expense now presents itself. In the grounds around the Almshouse, at Snake Hill, Warden Ryan has in the past few years planted from 4.000 te 5,000 young maple trees and 500 North Carolina poplars. These are all in a flourishing condition, and could be easily transplanted from Snake Hill to different points on the Boulevard. If the Boulevard Commissioners would confer with the Board of Freeholders, there is no doubt but that they would be allowed the privilege of taking the trees at a very low figure. The money ex pended bv the County for the trees would be paid to the County through the Board of Freeholders. Many of the parks could get trees from the spa source. Previous to Warden Ryan s planting these trees the Hill resembled a largo farm, but it now has more of the appear ance of a well-kept ^park. SCHOOL OF METHODS.
