IT WAS IMPORTANT TOO Unforunately Mr. Hoos Has All the Data and He Didn’t Show Up. INCREASES—WOULDN’T SAY. Mystery About the Hearing Before the County Board Next Monday, Also. The Tax Commissioners were to have had an important meeting this morning, but owing to the absence of President Robert Hoos, who was in possession o£ certain data, it was adjourned. Both Commissioners Degnau and Lindsay were on hand, and awaited the Presi dent's arrival tor almost an hour. While the Commissioners waited a reporter for "The Mews” asked Commissioner Deg nau what the Board proposed to do when it goes before the County Tax Board on Monday. "Oli! I don’t know. It’s pretty hard to say what we will do. We want to find out what the County Board wants first.” "It is understood they are under the impression that yon call find those 99, UU0.000 of ratables which President Rin gle, of the Finance Board, spoke v about?” "1 don't know anything about that because he never said officially anything abotu the matter to us.” N ON -COM M ITT AL. “Have you been making any increases in assessments?” "Yes, some. That is to say—well, I wouldn’t say just that. You see we are finishing up work of the late Com missioner Dayton.” “But you have been making in Boases ?” “I wouldn’t say that. You see, there are pieces of property on which the as sessments haven’t been fixed yet and in those cases, or many of them, increases have been made over former years.” “The County Board, I hear, labored under the imr% yssion that you would find about §99.000.000 ratables. but now learns that you can readily find $3,000, 000 more,” said the reporter. “Is that so?” asked Commissioner Deg nan. “That’s the general impression.” “Well, I wouldn’t want to say any thing in answer to that until I had a talk with the County Board.” “Do you think you could find $3,000. 000 more in ratables than it was first thought you would?” “I can't answer a question like that.” “Do you know of any pieces of prop erty on which the assessments might be , increased?” Hesitating—“I don't thing I can answer that question.” During the interview Commissioner Lindsay looked on and said nothing. IMPORTANT BUT VAGUE. The meeting scheduled for tiiis morn ing. it is said, was to have been an im portant one. While neither Commissioner Degnan nor Lindsay would say what it was to be about it is understood that in creasing assessments on the property of certain corporations was to be discussed. The Commissioners have been visiting corporation property recently. “Then you can’t tell what this meet ing was called for this morning?’’ said the reporter, about to go away. “It was an important matter, but Mr. S Hoos has all the data.” -^ " DIED WHILE SLEEPINB.

INTO THE GUTTER Driver, Two Riders and Two Wheels Thrown From a Coach in Succession. The driver and two occupants of a coach were mixed up in a serious run away accident on the Boulevard yester day afternoon. The driver had his right leg broken by being thrown from the seat, and the two occupants escaped with their lives by jumping from the coach while the horses were plunging at fall speed down Lexington avenue. An automobile, rushing along the Boulevard at a high rate of speed, scared the horses, which were being driv en by John Murphy, of Henderson and Montgomery streets. The animals took the bits between their teeth and started off on a gallop over the Central Railroad bridge toward the Bergen section. At Union street the driver was thrown from his seat. He was picked up in a semi conscious state and taken care of by some men. The team, given a free rein, kept on their course until they reached Lexington avenue, as they turned into Lexington avenue both bind wheels of the carriage flew off. It was then that the two oc cupants, whose names 6ouId not be learn ed, jumped out to the pavement, and rolled over several times. Both receiv ed cuts and bruises. About twenty feet further down the street, the horses rush ed up on the sidewalk on the north side of the street and were brought to a dead stop. Both animals were tangled up in the harness, one on each side of the tree, and could not free themselves. A big crowd soon gathered. The horses were extricated from their un comfortable positions and it was found that one had badly injured its right hind leg. The coach was wrecked. Murphy, the driver, was sent to the City Hospital. The police learned this morning that the coach was the property of James Norton, an undertaken of Grove street. -• GENEROUS JUDGE HOGS Ho Gave a Pair of Central Ferry Grafters All That Was Due Them in Time. Mary Ivana, twenty-seven years old, no home, and Arthur Guy Stewart, twen ty-two years old, of Xo. 1 Allen street, Manhattan, were arraigned this morning before Police Justice Hoos in the First Criminal Court as disorderly persons. The pair were arrested by Patrolman Kelly at the Jersey Central Railroad ferry last night after making several trips across the river soliciting alms from passengers on ferryboats. The woman was a very unhappy looking creature. Her arms were ban daged up and were held in slings. . She told several stories to account for her be ing so terribly niained. To sympathetic old ladies, she said that she had been crippled since her infancy. To others she told narrowing tales of falling down stairs and colliding with expres trains. The young’tnan distributed cards with a verse bearing on his dear friend's sad affliction, and concluding with the state ment that it was more blessed to give than to receive. The pair had gathered in a goodly harvest of other people’s money when Kelly put them out of business. The bandages were taken from the woman's arms at the First precinct sta tion house and the police wore unable to Und that they were any dierent from ordinary arms. She admitted that they wore aii right and confessed that the “graft” was easy. I'olice Justice Icons was much im pressed with the last line on the begging card, that it was more blessed to give than to receive, and gave the pair ninety days each at the Penitentiary. CENTRAL BRIDGE Mile Long Steel Structure on Solid Stone Piers to Connect Bayonne and Newark. The Central Railroad of New Jersey has just perfected plans for the con structure of a new and substantial steel bridge across Newark Bay, the cost of which will run close into a million. The new structure will be more than a mile in its total length, and will provide draws over the channel in conformity with the recent regulations of the Unit ed States Navy Department. The plans provide a clearance of 100 feet each side of the central pedestal. The foundations of the new bridge will be built of masonry, sunk below the sur face of Newark Bay to be rock, and the architectural design is impressive for its solidity, the object of the engineers being to construct the new bridge in so substantial a manner that express trains ' of the heaviest weight—especially those used in making up the New York and Philadelphia limited—may pass over at speed without vibration. The new bridge will be the chief ar tery for all express passenger trains ou the main line to Philadelphia and of the Bound Brook route. The present structure is constructed throughout of wood and rests on a cause way built entirely of wooden piles. Contracts for the new bridge have al ready been signed, and work on the structure will begin as soon as General Manager Bentley and other officers of the Central Railroad approve them. One of the specifications in the contracts pro vides that the new bridge must be con structed so as not to interfere with traf fic. -♦ DETECTIVE ATTACKED Veracity of State’s Chief Wit ness in Long Branch Cases Questioned. (Special to the “Jersey City News.”) FREEHOLD, Aug. 2, 1902.—County Detective Charles E. Strong, of Colts Neck, the man who was chiefly instru mental in acquiring the evidence which has resulted in the closing of the Long Branch gambling houses, was given a terrific shake-up in court here yesterday. After the Long Branch gamblers had pleaded, the trial of Alls. Julia Smith, colored, was begun. John Giberson, of Colts Neck, by whom Mrs. Smith is em ployed. had. engaged E. W. Arrowsmith and Edmund Wilson to defend the wo man. Mr. Giberson is a rich old “For ty-niner,” who made his money in the gold regions of California, and he ap peared in court personally. Officer Strong had been securing evidence against the defendant and was also in court, and gave testimony against Airs. Smith. Air. Giberson took the stand and swore to the woman’s good reputation in the community. Air. Arrowsmith then asked him what Air. Strong’s reputation for truth and veracity was. Mr. Giberson hesitated, and glancing at Air. Strong said:— “Shall I answer. Charley?” "Speak out,” said Strong. “Well, I wouldn’t believe him under oath,” said Giberson. John Drum, of East Freehold, also swore Air. Strong's reputation was bad and that he would not beleieve him under oath. John A. Smock, of Colts Neck, swore that Air. Strong owed him money, but he was not prepared to say whether he would or would not believe him under oath. Frank E. Ileyer, of Colts Neck, swore that he did not know what Air. Strong’s reputation was, although Air. Giberson swore that Air. Ileyer had told him he, too. wouldn’t believe Air. Strong under oath. Prosecutor Fester asked Air. Giberson if he was on good terms with his neigh bor, Strong, and Giberson said he was. The Prosecutor said he was surprised that he should be on such good terms with a man with such an alleged repu tation, and Air. Giberson replied:— “If I lived beside the devil I would try to keep on good terms with him.” The jury acquitted Airs. Smith. Some people are wondering whether the attempt to besmirch Air. Strong is not the prelude of the big fight to indict the gamblers by attacking the veracity of the State’s main witness. _A_ BEAM FELL ON THEM. A serious accident oecured yesterday afternoon on a new pjgr which is being constructed at the foot of Sussex street. A beam fell, striking Charles Yimdolph, twenty-seven years old. of No. 20ii Sixth street, across the back. Ilis spine was injured. Bernard Dolan, twenty-six years old. was pinned down and his left leg broken. Yimdolph was sent home and Dolan wa3 removed to St. Francis Hospital. -4 REV. H. MYERS’S SERMON. The Rev. H. II.

O'BRIEN'S BAD FIX The “Commish” and Fel low Victims Held for the Grand Jury by Judge Hoos. NOT VISIBLE IN COURT Law Dsflned Regarding the Responsibility for Sunday Liquor Selling. - , 4 Police Justice Hoos in the First Crimi nal Court this morning, held Charles lteers, a Newark avenue saloonkeeper, to await the action of the Grand Jury on a charge of selling intoxicating liquor on Sunday. The evidence against lteers was secured by Julius C. Frank and his assistant temperance sleuth, Robert \lc Crum, who also bagged Excise Commis sioner John O’Brien, Patrick McArdle and Basford & Glenn in their little trip around town last Sunday. As '‘Oonimish” O’Brien and the other two defendants, waived examination promising to abide by the decision in Reers's case, the complaints against them will also be investigated by the Grand Jury. WHERE WAS THE UOflMIMK There was much comment in the court room over the apparent absence of De fendant O’Brien, who had been paroled in Lawyer James Manning’s custody to appear this morning to hear Justice Hoos’s decision. If Mr. O’Brien was in court he must have been in disguise. Nobody saluted anybody in the room as “Commish” while the Justice was expounding the law in telling why he held Ileers. THE LAW DEFINED. Justice Hoos said that the upper courts have held that there is nothing in the act of 189S which is inconsistent with the Werts liquor law, therefore the owner of a saloon is responsible for the sale of liquor by 'an employee. Mr. Beer's counsel had contended that tinder the law of '98, the bartender who sold the beer to young Frank and McCrum was liable to arrest and not Beers, who wasn’t in the saloon at the time. Judge Hoos Said that the saloonkeep e” got all the profits and the purpose of the law, as defined by the courts, placed upon him all liability for violating the Sunday law. "Commish” O’Brien, Reers, McArdle and Basford & Glen were paroled in the custody of their counsel. FOWLER’S RAZZLE-DAZZLE Bayonnite Comments on the Congressman’s Past and Future Slickness. Bayonne. July 31, 1902. Editor “Jersey City News”:— Dear Sir—You seem to doubt the Hon. Chas. N. Fowler’s ability as a financier. Why, let me tell you that he is the most wonderful financial razzle dazzleist that was ever produced on an Illinois, farm. Ilis methods and cures are as wonderful as those of the great German Dr. Eiseubart, who had the fa culty to make the lame see and the blind walk. By the way, just think of it. Eight years ago he was a poor man, today lie is a millionaire, and it came to him so graceful that the people do not even ask Where did he get it? Still you doubt his ability. Bead his wonder ful bankers’ bill. A better bill for the benefit of greedy bankers was never framed. I presume, had the bill passed, it would have also helped C. N. materi ally. it campaign contriDutions irom me IIou. (?) C. N. are handled by the same kind of gang as those in the campaign of 1900 at Bayonne, he will decidedly be left in the cold. The very gang of freebooters that did not use a penny in Fowler's behalf is the same gang that defrauded Mr. Thomas out of the appointment of postmaster. As the Hon. (?) O. X. has seen fit to reward trimmers and to trample down on a man who has an honorable record as a soldier, citizen and who is a loyal Republican. It is my earnest wish and hope that he may be defeated this fall. I can assure you quite a number of Bayonne Republi cans can be found in Union County hustling for votes, and I may safely predict that they will not b$ for Fowler. Very respectful, C. Ti.

The jury in the case of the State Board of Health against Sarah Block of Xew Durham charged with keeping unclean cow stables and selling impure milk, yes terday afternoon in the First District Court gave judgment in favor of the de fendant. The case lasted from eleven until al most five o'clock. The jury was out about twenty minutes. The State Board sued to recover the penalty of if50 for improperly caring for caus. Lawyer Charles C.arrrck appeared for the Block woman while the State Board was represented by James Gordon. The State Dairy Commissioner, McGuire, who investigated conditions at tli^ Block stables, made a complaint as follows: POLLUTED WATER. The water supply for watering the stock and for washing the milk cans and utensils is obtained from a shal low surface well located about sev enty-five feet west from the stable ' buildings. The soil in the vicinity of the well is boggy, and between the well and the stable buildings large quantities of manure are stor ed. The black teachings from the manure spread over the ground and mingle with the storm water, which saturates the soil and stands about the well. The soil about the well is mounded up, and thereby prevents tlie surface washings from flowing directly into it. The quantity of ma hire found at the inspection was estimated to be 100 loads, and the leachings from the manure were vis ible up to a point twenty feet from the well. An analysis of the water from the well shows that it is polluted and unsafe for domestic use. The dan ger attending the use of the water from this well consists in the un henlthful effect of polluted water up nlso the injurious effect upon the health of the persons who consume the millc, which is contaminated by pathogenic bacteria, which are pres ent in contaminated waters, and which gain aceess to the milk by ad hering to the interior of rlie cans and utensils, and often by direct ad ditions of the water to the milk. * * * The washing of the uten sils on the Block premises is con ducted in the stable, amid the ex cretes. dust and dirt which exist there.” When he took the stand yesterday he said:— DEMAGOGIC NOTIONS. The Dairy Commissioner says the department lias experienced some difficulty in bringing these cases to conviction on account of a curious popular prejudice against the prose cutions. as being in the interest of the Milk Trust and against its poor competitors. He says that there is a notion abroad, which is reflected in the juries drawn, that the attacks on these foul stables are actually prompted by tlic big milk producers, who want in this way to crush out their small rivals. It is not prSn able. he adds, that the owners of these foul places discourage this view of the case or take any pains to disabuse the public mind of this im pression, but it is certain that there is not a shadow of foundation for such a belief. The Block woman produced witnesses who testified that she kept clean stables and did everything to see that only pure milk was sold. The (State produced photographs show ing the crowded condition of the stables. Judge Otto Crouse, before whom the case was arguing, made a fair charge to the jurors. He said the officers of the State Board of Health were paid to see that health was preserved and asked the jurors to take this into consideration. He said, too,-tnat they should weigh the testimony of the defendant and her witnesses. “ SHE’S A WIDOW.” There was a rumor afloat after the jury brought in its verdict that the jurors decided in favor of Mrs. Block be cause she was a widow and had several small children dependent upon her. Judge Crouse said at the conclusion of the case that there wouldn’t be any more jury trials during August owing to the warm weather. The case of the State Board against Hyman Fisher, of Fairview, complaint same as in the Block case, was adjourn ed until September. _ ARRESTED FOR DESERTION. Bayonne Man Decides He's Had Too Much of a Oirl. Stanllas Duke wasarressted in Bayonne yesterday on the charge _of breach of promise. Lawyer Alexander P. Max well. of Bayonne, attorney for Antonina Sehttlzka, says Duke promised to marry that young woman and paid the fee to have the banns read in the Roman Cath olic Church, on * East Twenty-second street, Bayonne, on July 13. % Several days ago Duke announced that he was going to live in Pennsylvan ia, and publicly repudiated the engage ment. He is now-in the Hudson County Jail waiting for bail of $o00.

GREAT STRIKE OF TWO Western Union Sprinters “Trew de tin back at de Cashier.” TWO GENTS AN ERRAND SHY Great Excitement in a Limited Circle of Labor Agita tors There was rumor afloat this morning that the supreme walking delegate of the United Mesenger Boys of America had duly served notice on the boys in the employ of the Western Union Tele graph Company in this city, to quit work because of a dispute which arose be tween Manager Bertholf and several skilled members of the service. Itumor had it that the company had committed a serious offense by attempt ing to install a new scale of wages with out first consulting the supreme delegate of the union. A general tie up along fhe line was predicted and the company was to be taught a lesson that would compel it to recognize the Messenger Roys’wUnion of America for all time to come. When a reporter for “The News” call ed at the Western Union office to inves tigate the reported strike two boys, each puffing away on a cigarette, with his hands in his pockets, paced the sidewalk in front of the office. They seemeif to be worried, for they were consuming “coffin nails” by the dozen. When asked if they were two of the strikeys they smiled. Then one of the pair put on a serious expression and replied:— “Yes, we’re on a strike. I’m sick a workin’ fer nuttin’. Pete an’ I quit dis mornin’, didn’t we Pete? I told de plug inside dat I wouldn’t take no $10.20 a month an’ I trew'de money back at him.” “Is to-day pay day?” “Yes.” “Why did you refuse the money?” “Because we made more'n de sheet called for.” “What sheet?” “Why, de pay sheet, of course. We ain’t supposed to do nutten for de com pany but what we get de cosumma fer it. I know me little book and so does Pete. Don’t we, P^te?” Pete nodded approval to everything his friend, Jimmie, said. “After another puff or two on the cigarette the latter remarked:— “We’re no' goiu’ to be trun down by any company. We’re supposed to get two cents fer evo»y message we carry.” “And don’t you get it?” “No. we don’t get it.” “How many of you struck?” “Only me an’ Pete. De udder kids were afraid to go out.” Manager Bertliolf’s' assistant said la ter that the trouble among the boys was caused by a slight difference which oc curred on the pay-roll. He said that the grievance was ’ confined entirely to the two boys in question. All the other boys remained at work. -« WARRANT FOR RYERSON. Alleged Legal Embezzler Will Probably Be Disbarred in September, A warrant has been issued by Judke Blair for the arrest of Counselor George Ryerson, of West Hoboken, on n charge of embezzlement.

Ryerson promptly coufic cated the money, and the present war rant is the outcome of his act.

Residents of Herman avenue, Gutten berg. were treated to a peculiar and rath er gruesome spectacle yesterday when the body of Mrs. Louise Anderegg was lowered out of a hay loft in a basket by means of a scaffold which was hastily rigged by Simon Sharp, Undertaker Arm strong’s assistant. Mrs. Anderegg, who was forty-four years old, lived in an old barn on the street named. She managed to eke out a meagre living for herself and a daughter by selling milk from three cows which she managed to retain. The cows were housed at night in stalls in the lower part of the stable, and the woman and her daughter slept and ate in the hay loft above. Mrs. Anderegg had long been a suffer er from heart disease and dropsy. Yester day she complained of feeling ill.

PLANK ROAD MUDDLE Spencer Weart and Essex's Counsel Try to Straighten Things Out. “PROGRESS SATISFACTORY” Mr. Munn Says, There Are Legal Problems to Be Sol ved—Mr.Holmea’s Views Spoueer S. Weart, counsel for the North Jersey Street Railway, said this morning that he expected that the free holders of Essex and Hudson would get together before next Wednesday and come to some agreement for the opera tion and maintenance of the Plank road. He said that he was in Newark yester day and had a conference with Mr. Munn, counsel for the Essex Freehold ers. He saw no reason, he said, why the trolley company and the counties could not settle the matter in a satis factory manner before long. There were some local questions, all more difficult, which had to be settled before a definite agreement could be ar rived at but these were not insurmount able and the matter, he thought, would soon be settled. WILL BE ARRANGED. What the trolley company would do Tuesday night when the agreement un der which tt.; present status is maintain ed expires, he said he could not say, but he was confident that some «stisfacto~~ arrangement would be made. At the conference between Mr. Weart and Mr. Munn, in Newark yesterday, there were diseased some details of an agreement that is being prepared for settling the Plank road matter. At the conference the points in question was discussed, but they are not ready to be given out now. SATISFACTORY PROGRESS. “Satisfactory progress is being made on an agreement, considering the obsta cles in the way,” Mr. Munn said, “in spite of all the talk from Jersey City about Essex County causing delay. There are difficult legal problems to be solved before an agreement is completed, but the obstacles are not insuperable, and the trolley company and the counties will probably settle the matter satisfactorily in good time. "If it takes a week or five weeks to overcome legal difficulties, the time will be taken, for it is important for all par ties concerned tlmt when a final agree ment is reached it shall be such that the question will not trouble the counties or the company again. There are other parties whose interests have to be con sidered before an agreement can be closed, but it will be closed when all the legal difficulties are overcome.” DIRECTOR HOLMES'S VIEWS. Director Michael B. Holmes of the Hudson County Board of Freeholders does not entertain any rosy views about a settlement of the Plank dead difficulty. Personally, he doesn't care whether the road is closed or open and emphatically said that if Essex County did not show any disposition to settle the question on the lines laid down by Vice Chancellor Stevenson, he would urge that Hudson should at once drop any further negotia tions about it. "Our Board.” he added, “decided to leave the adjustment of the matter with our counsel. Mr. John Griffin, because we have every confidence in his judgment and ability. I think myself that Essex County is trying to shirk her responsi bility in the road. That county uses it to such a large extent that it solely af fects them and not us. Personally I think it would he a good tiling to close the road. The traffic from Hudson to Es sex, so small as it is, could go via the turnpike. If Essex will meet the situation fail!!' and squarely she will find that Hudson will do all it can to effect a settlement of the trouble. —---—A BAUER-ORTNER.
