Police Board Refuses
to Surrender to the New Trustees, So There! I HMD IPIIIII l . ( Board Wants the Riparian Board Counsel to Pass on the Validity of His Own Act. STAR CHAMBER SESSION Dr. McGill's Resignation Laid On the Table—Salmon Crowded Out Dr. John D. McGill’s protest against any action by the Board of Police Com missioners in turning over City Hospital funds in their possession to the new Board of City Hospital Trustees, result ed last night in the adoption of a reso lution by the Commissioners calling upon the Corporation Counsel for an opinion as to the legality of the new City Hos pital act. The Commissioners also decid ed not to surrender any money entrusted to their care by the Board of Finance until it was shown that they had a legal right to give it up to a legally consti tuted body. The stand taken by the Board was a victory for Dr. McGill, who did not have mdch difficulty in convincing Commis sioners Tilden and Mitchell, his Repub lican colleagues, that it would be wise for them to be sure they were right be fore going ahead. PRIVATE CONFERENCE. Prior to the meeting the three Com missioners had a conference in their room on the third floor of Police Head quarters building. Exactly what was done at the conference is not a matter of record. It is said that Dr. McGill had the floor for a good part ef the time, and carefully went over the situation, ex plaining in detail in what respect he con siders the new act faulty and showing what would happen to the Police Com missions in case the law was declared invalid after they had transferred the fnnds. President Tilden, it is said, remarked that he had been informed by good legal authority that the act would stand the test of the courts. He said, however, that he was desirous of making no mis takes and therefore believed with Dr. McGill that it would be wise to delay the transfer until they knew exactly Where they were at. Mr. Mitchell, it is alleged, wasn’t quite eo willing to look at the situation in President Tilden’s light. The Commissieners didn’t take the trouble to go down stairs to the First Criminal Court room to have their open session. President Tilden called the pub lie meeting to oraer iu iue private mittee room. Colonel Robinson, the clerk, called the roll, and the business of the night was transacted without any citizens in the lobby. The fact that the Board was in session was not made known to the newspaper reporters, who were downstairs waiting for the mem bers to put in an appearance in public. They knew nothing about it until after the Commissioners retired to the Chief’s room and the committee room had been locked. Never In years has a Police Board eon ' „ .ftected public business in such a pe culiarly private manner. Just why the Commissioners did so no one could satis factorily explain. It was said that they “didn’t mean anything by it” and “didn’t think” any criticism would be made about their failure to stir from their chairs after Dr. McGill’s talk. Clerk Robinson informed the news paper men that a communication was received from the City Hospital Trus tees relative to taking over the manage ment and funds of the City Hospital from the Board of Police Commissioners. SALMON FORCED OUT. The resignation of Edward Salmon as Deputy Health Inspector was accepted. Mr. Salmon decided that the job of in vestigating smallpox cases by the whole sale and running the risk many times a day of contracting the disease was not what it was cracked up to be in view of the fact that the Board had insisted that he should bay a uniform at his own ex pense and wear it while on duty. As ue received only $60 a month he did uot see where he would come out. It is understood that the Republican Commissioners were anxious to secure Dragged*Down Feeling In the loins. Nervousness, unrefreshing sleep, despon dency. It is time you were doing something. The kidneys were anciently called the reins—in your case they are holding the reins and driving you into serious trouble. Hood’s Sarsaparilla Acts with the most direct, beneficial efiect on the kidneys. It contains the best and safest substances for correcting and toning these organs. Salmon’s place for one of the faithful, who thinks he would like to try his luck at catching smallpox at $00 per. and so imposed conditions which they knew would be distasteful to Salmon iu order to force him out and thus create a vacau ey. Salmon is a Democrat. It is ru mored that there will be other vacancies before long. DR. McGILL’S RESIGNATION. Dr. McGill sent in his resignation as a visiting surgeon at the City Hospital just as "The Jersey City News” yesterday said he would. Commissioners Tddeu and Mitchell didn’t accept it but simply laid it on the table. They didn't like the idea of going on record as depriving the hospi tal of Dr. McGill's services, although his work is finished there in consequence of Mayor Fagan's notorious insult to the physician. The Board adopted a resolution re questing tlie Board of Finance to appio priate $1,500 to furnish the new Sixth precinct station house. They adopted without comment the following resolution calling upon Corpo ration Counsel George L. Record for an opinion as to the legality of new City Hospital act. Resolved That the Corporation Counsel be requested to give this Board an opinion as to the legality of the act entitled, “An act to au thorize cities of the first class of this State to purchase hind and erect hospital building thereon, and to is sue and sell bonds to pay for the same and to create a board of offi cials to have charge of the same.” That his opinion be requested as to the legality of all the provisions of said act and particularly as to the failure of the said act to express in its title a synopsis of all the pro visions of the act: its failure to make provision for an appropriation of money by the proper municipal board for its support; its failure to authorize the transfer of monies to the new hospital trustees, now in trusted to this Board and included in the general police appropriation; its failure to provide a repeal of the city charter provision which vests the control and management of the City Hospital in the Board of Police Commissioners: and be it Resolved, Th&t further action in the matter of transfer of property belonging to the City Hospital be deferred until the said opinion be submitted to this Board. No man in the city is more competent to tell what he thinks of the bill than Mr. Record. He ought to know all about it because he drew it. His opin ion ought to be interesting, and it should contain some valuable pointers for the Supreme Court, which may be called to pass on the legality of the act after Mr. Record takes a hack at it. It is rumored in official circles that Mr. Record has already expressed ver bally his belief that the law is as sound as the authority of the State of New Jer sey can make it. There are others who say that the Corporation Counsel could punch it full of holes if it hadn't been dra'wn by Mr. Record. CITY DEMANDS IT New York Merchants Want P. R. R. Tunnel Franchise Passed—Aldermen’s Committee, President Fornes, of the New York Board of Aldermen, appointed yesterday the committee to confer with the Rapid Transit Commission Committee about the franchise for the ^Pennsylvania Railroad Company’s tunnel from Jersey City to Manhattan. • The committee is as follows:—Presi Cantor, of the Borough of Manhattan: Alderman Walkly, of Brooklyn; Aider man Timothy P. Sullivan. Alderman Longfellow, of the Bronx; and Aider man James, of Queens. None of the aldermen on the conference committee is a member of the railroad committee of the Board of aldermen. President Fornes said yesterday: MAYOR WASN’T CONSULTED. “I expect that the conference commit tee I have named will confer with the railroad committee of the Aldermen. In making up the conference committee I did not consult the Mayor or anyone else. I simply used my own judgment.” President Fornes announced that the first general conference on the tunnel franchise is to be held in the office of the Rapid Transit Commissioners on August 5. MERCHANTS WANT TUNNEL. At a meeting of the board of directors of the Merchants’ Association yesterday resolutions concerning the tunnel fran chise were adopted, the sentiment of the board being that the commercial future of the city demands the construction of such a tunnel, and that the great benefit to be derived makes it incumbent upon the city officials to find speedily some satisfactory solution of the problem. -* TRINITY M.

A kitten belonging to n six-ycar-old Montgomery street girl indiscreetly jumped on u kitchen table yesterday af ternoon. landing in the middle of some sticky fly paper. There was a commo tion iustauter and the kitten’s mistress went to the rescue. Then followed a child’s screams, mingled with pitiful meows, and the little girl’s mother took a hand in separating the kitten from fly paper and the fly paper from the child. The task wasn’t an easy one and it spoiled the fly paper. Then came the necessity of a bath for the little girl and a liberal dose of hot soap suds for the cat. Henceforth in this particu lar household fly paper will be placed out of the reach of the inquisitive kitten and the sympathetic little owner. Ex-Assemblyman John Toilers, who lives in the Hudson City section, still retains his old time popularity. He min gles freely with Democrats and Repub licans, and though a stalwart Democrat, numbers among his friends many men of his section who are equally stalwart Republicans. In other words, John is pleasant company. He is level-headed. As a man among men he is appreciated by those who disagree with him poli tically as well as those who fight him politically. Mr. James Hays, of Pearsall avenue, has just returned from a prolonged visit to Bridgeport, Connecticut. Of late years* Clerks Charles Ester broeh, of the Fire Board, has become a thoroughly domesticated man. He still enjoys meeting the ‘‘boys”—his early political and social associates—occasion ally, but, in accordance with- the sound sense of which he has been always not&l he prefers “all the comforts of a home” to evenings of enjoyment at the club or elsewhere. He is a prominent i^ember of the Berkeley Club. He has a fine home and family at Webster avenue and Prospect street. Daniel F. McMahon, of the Bronx District. X. Y., will visit Ills brother. Roundsman Frank McMahon, of \ ir ginia and Bergen avenues, on Sunday, August 3. Tlie members of the family are to celebrate the occasion by testing some wild geese alleged to be shot by Frank. When Ihe lights went out in a West Side trolley car last night a man who was dozing in a corner seat looked up at the conductor and asked:—“Want a match?” “If there is a bigger corporation in New York or New Jersey than Martin Daab I have not seen it,” said a local sannterer. “Mr. Daab is Police Com missioner of Hoboken. Soijie folks say he resembles former President Cleveland in the face. Possibly. Notwithstand ing his great weight, between 301) and 400 pounds, he is as active as a bitten, and as light on his feet as a sailor. When in the mood he will dance you a jig. cut the pigeon wing, do the buzzard lope, run a footrace or eat a beefsteak. H.s com fortable fortune was made in Duke's House.” Fred Bluem, a Grand Army veteran, and one of the best known men iu the Hudson City section, has for the past few years been handicappel in his old age by rheumatism. For a long while he suffered uncomplainingly. He has. however, recovered somewhat, and b:s many friends who gather at his resort at Ferry street and Palisade avenue, are consequently glad. Though a Republi can in polities, he numbers among his strong personal friends some of the best known Democratic politicians in the Hudson City section. His son Will has also been under the weather physically for some months past, but is rapidly re covering his erstwhile robust health, anti it is only a question of time, and a short time at that, before he will be able, if he ^o desires, to do old-time athletic stunts on the baseball diamond. Thursday evening a very beautiful night blooming eereus opened at the Pioneer Home, on Garfield avenue and Dwight street. AH the friends of Mrs. Laterman. the matron, came to see it. When the flowers opened they were found to be in the most beautiful shades of yellow, white and pink. Patrick Hayes. Jr., the genial son of Acting Chief of Police Hayes, of Hobo ken, bought a new- milk white vest this morning. He took the vest home, un wrapped it gently, threw it on the floor, and hung the wrapping paper on a hook. Mr. Hayes is not a drinking man. Professor and Mrs. Joseph B.

STEWARD THE ONLY OFFICER Strange Connection Between the Society’s Organization and a Tinted Qemman’s License. Tlie Jersey City National Republican Club, an organization of colored uieu, fil ed papers of incorporation last week. Ac cording to its charter the reasons for i:s existence are of a rather exalted char acter. Throwing aside the worn nut rules of English “as she is wrote,” the incorporators announced their objects in tlie following vigorous, if novel, lan guage:— The study of political economy, the principles of Republicanism, the constitutional right, duties and tlie protection guaranteed the colored race by both the State and Federal constitutions and tlie general good and wellfare of the members and to debate natural topics upon repub licanism and democracy. i onaeriiigs over j. am.m ui suiuiw in legal history might naturally be at the origin of such a programme. But great matters oftentimes have small begin nings, and unless all evidence is sadly at fault, what is at the origin here is the fact that J. II. Clopton, a former negro saloonkeeper at No. 321 Railroad ave nue, decided that he couldn’t get his liquor license renewed. Since its organization weeks ago, the association has grown by leaps and bounds. It now numbers 205 members and more are coming ill daily. Never before have “de culled gents” of the city shown such a sudden, unexpected and overwhelming desire for economical, poli tical and social science. In fact the slanderous assertion lias until now fre quently gone the rounds that the only sort of science the "gents” were at all acquainted with was that practiced by Fitzsimmons and Jeffries. The headquarters of this newly born academy are located at Clopton's ancient two room joint, where his hoary shingle still hangs out. The front chamber is an ordinary bar room, with about four feet of space'between the rail and the wall. Three chairs and a pool room make up the furniture of the rear apartment. Here the club’s mission of etilightmeut is to be started by the incorporators and first year's trustees, Messrs. Robert Marshall, Daniel Dean, J. C. Crumes, ,T. L. Smith and J. II. Clopton. Here be tween the fragrant whiffs of a “three for five” and the clarifying influence of “nickel sour mash.” the “principles of re publicanism” and the “general good and welfare” of the voodoo will be critically examined and debated. Or.•perhaps n question anciit the laws of mechanics may be studiously raised ns “Mistali Johnsing' gracefully poises the pool cue to rnke in a “penny ante.” As yet the club has elected no officers outside of a stewart. The consensus of opinion is that none other is needed. NEW POLICE HOME Handsome Station House at Central Avenue and Hutton Street. Acting Inspector MeKaig yesterday made a round of the various precincts, and as he expresses it, found the sta tions and police matters in general “in fine condition.” nil except the old Web ster avenue station-bourse, which he says, will be abandoned in about a week or two for the handsome new $35,000 structure at Central avenue and Hutton street. The old structure, which was formerly a brick stable, has long been a menace to the health of the men housed there in. The rapid growth of that section of the city, too. has left the present location far from the centre of the precinct. The new building is centrally located and is one of the best equipped station houses in the city. It is an L-shaped, three-story structure fronting on Central avenue and on Huttou street. It is built of colonial brick witli stone trimmings. The main entrance is on Central avenue and the patrol wagon entrance is on Hut ton sreet. The structure adjoins the side and rear of the only bank building of that section, and forms another archi tectural ornament to the neighborhood. The flooring of the first story is hard wood doubled, and the base boards are of marble. The sitting room for the men is large and nicely ventilated. The sleep ing rooms are on the second floor. The third floor can be converted into a dor mitory or a gymnasium. The building is now being equipped with steam heating apparatus and the painters and decora tors are putting on the finishing touches. THAT IVYGREEN. St. Aloysiui Academy Made Beau tiful With the Rare Old Plant. Everyone in Jersey City ought to look at the ivy on the Warren street side of St. Aloysflus Academy. It reaches almost to the roof and is a most beautiful shade of green. -♦ NEW CKURGH PAPER. The Rev. E. W. Fnlpcr, pastor of the Church of Our Savior, is making plans to edit a church paper.
