JAMES S. COWARD, 268-274 Greenwich St., near Warren St.,N.Y. Send for Catalogue, WIRE STOLEN. Property Valued at $400 Found in a Junk Shop Arrests and a Con fession. « Louis Oram’s boat house,, on the New ark Bay, at the foot of Culver avenue, was forced open Tuesday night and a large coil of copper wire, valued at $400, belonging to the Western Union Tele phone Company, was stolen. The com pany, which is stretching wires across the bay, used the boat house for storage purposes. Lately quantities of copper wire have been missed. Detective Frank Bennett of the Ocean avenue station was notified of the rob bery and yesterday he found the wire and made arrests. The building had been entered by a side window. When Louis Oram went to the boat house yesterday morning he found the place had been entered and that two large coils of copper' wire were missing. Bennett found the wire in the yard of David Hopper, wholesale junk dealer, at Jersey avenue and Eighteenth street. Hopper told Bennett he had bought the two coils for $27.07 from Vincent Congo, a junkman, at No. 404 Third street. Vincent Congo said he bought the wire from William Henry, of No. 44 Ege ave nue, paying $11 for it. Bennett put Congo under arrest and then wfipt to Hopper’s junk shop, got the wimi and returned it to the boat house. William Henry admitted stealing the wire, saying “Baldy” Clark, a lineman employed by the company, told him about it, and they agreed to share the pro ceeds. Henry made the following state ment:—“We wtbt to the house early in the morning and ea eh of us carried a coil of wire to the railroad tracks and sold it for $11 to a junkman. Clark ga^e me $5 as jny share.” Henry would jot admit which broke into the place. Henry belongs to a respectable family. He hangs around Oram’s boat house and does a little work now and then for his meals. Clark, who lives in Elizabeth, was not arrested, but Detective Bennett has sworn out a warant for him. William Henry was held on a charge of grand larceny, and the junkman, Vin cent Congo, was arrested on a charge of buying stolen goods. Congo and Henry were araigned before Police Justice Murphy this morning. The examination was put off until Saturday. Meanwhile the prisoners are to be held. -♦ FOR HIS BROTHER’S SAKE. Thomas Quinlan, twelve years old, was the complainant against Vincent Porleys, fifteen years old, in the First Criminal Court this morning. Quinlan claims that Parleys, who is a boot black, knocked him down yesterday afternoon and kicked him. The defend ant admitted striking Quinlan, but gave as his reason that Quinlan and a num ber of other boys had his brother, Amedio, thirteen years old, who had been in this country but one month, down on the ground pummelling him. Parsleys went to his brother’s assist ance and threw his assailants off. The affray took place underneath the Penn sylvania trestle at Grove street. Judge Hoos reserved his decision un til September 25. -• DUMB, DRUNK, BEGGING. Thomas Goodwin, sixty years old, who gives his nominal home, Camden, N. J., was sentenced to thirty days on the County Farm by Judge Hoos in the First Criminal Court this morning. Goodwni was arrested for begging while drunk on Exchange place last night. He claims to be deaf and dumb and was tried by Judge Hoos writing his questions and the prisoner writing the answers. After the officer had given his testi mony, Judge Hoos asked Goodwin if he had anything to say. Goodwin wrote in answer:— “Anything the officer says is all right, Judge.” KELLY ON DECK AGAIN.

The Hoboken Common Council met as a Committee of the Whole last night to hear citizens who might desire to express themselves regarding the proposed issue of $130,000 school bonds for the purpose of building School Xo. 8. Contrary to expectations, no objections to the issue were offered. The Couueilmeu felt satis fied, however, that they lmd done their duty in holding the open meeting, and should any complaint be made after the bonds are issued the public will be obliged to share the blame. It is said that many citizens object to the site on the ground that theland, be ing swampy, is unfit for a school house. Others claim that two smaller school houses should be built instead of one large building. It was asserted that no objections were made last night because the citizens fear that if they suggest that the plans be altered, the building of the school, so badly needed, will be postponed indefin itely. U UUUlUVIi \ C-CFUlVEi. Councilman O’Rourke offered a resolu tion to the effect that the committee of the whole recommend that the bonds be issued. Cooke said the motion was out of order. He claimed that the Council was not sitting as a committee of the whole, but merely to hear those who might desire to be heard on the new school. He said he thought the council was fully capable of issuing the bonds without any recommendation. O'Rourke then hinted that certain of his colleagues objected to the new school, whereupon Cooke jumped to his feet and said:— "No one objects to this school, but I for one am in favor of giving the matter free discussion. I’ll give my opini >n, and I think I’m doing what’s right.” O’Rourke replied that no attempt eras being made to strangle opinion, but he felt that the school was a necessity and should be built. HEARING ADJOURNED. Councilman Steil said that while he was in favor of issuing the bonds he hardly thought that action should be taken at present. He did not believe any member of the council was hamper ing the school as O’Rourke had assert cl: Cooke explained that he was perfectly willing to vote for the bonds, but he did not see why the matter should be rushed. After Mayor Lankering made a few re marks upon the necessity of the school Cooke moved that the meeting adjourn. The members of the Board of Educa tion attended the meeting in a body to gether with Architect Robert Dixon, who brought along the plans for the new school. FILLSmAKE Councilman Lynch of West Hoboken Accused of Acting Without Authority. Chairman Bergkamp of the West Ho boken Town Council at its meeting last night called the street committee to account in connection With the recent fill ing in with earth the lake in the public park. ~v Tlie chairman asked Councilman Lynch, chairman of the street commit tee, if it was with his consent that the pond was filled in. Mr. Lynch replied that he ordered it done as frequent complaints had been made by citizens in the neighborhood of the park that the lake was a nuisauce, being the receptacle for dead animals and all kinds of rubbish. He said citi zens had complained to the Council and he thought the best way to abate the nuisance was to have the place filled in. “That may be so,” said Chairman Bergkamp, “but don’t you think you should have laid the matter before the Council and allowed it to say what should be done?” Most of the signers of the communica tion received by the Council are residents of Weeliawken Heights, not West Hobo ken, and at that time a motion authoriz ing the filling in of the lake was rejected by a vote of four to three. There was a great difference of opinion as to the place being a nuisauce, many claiming that as water was continually running it conld not become stagnnnt” Councilman Lynch—“Well. I thought filling it in to be the most feasable way.” After considerable wrangling over Mr. Lynch’s action, in which lie was taken to task for assuming what was called too much authority, the mntter was dropped. It is expected that this will be the end of it. -*-. A Wes Jap’s Attendants. Few royal children live in grenter splendor than the heir presumptive to the throne of Japan.

UNITED IN BAYONNE Democrats Practically a Unit in the Choice of Nominees. • _ POLITICS IN THE WARDS Men Talked of For City Offices —President Flanigan Seems to Be Out. Democrats politicians of Bayonne are discussing available men for ward nom inations, finding the supply equal to the demand. Just as “The News” has al ready explained, Democrats are practi cally agreed over te principal nomina tions. Bayonne Democrats are satisfied in their choice "of Recorder Hyman Laz arus and Freeholder Patrick Nugent to succeed themselves. Councilman Charles McGee of the Fifth Ward, a former Freeholder, remains alone in the field for President of the Common Council. City Attorney Allan Benny is popular and without opposition in Bayonne for the Congressional nomination. Among the wards, Daniel J. Murray is mentioned for School Trustee from the First to succeed Alderman Peter Stillwell, whose renomination for Assem blyman is expected. Mr. Stillwell will have served two full terms, or six years, in the Board of Education, having been President twice, being the present chair man of the Committee on Schools. Ed ward Bannon is also talked of for School Trustee in that ward, likewise for Coun cilman to succeed Andrew T. Gill. Mr. Gill may decide to run again. Councilman George F. Moritz of the Second is mentioned as his own succes sor, provided he will aceept. John J. Nealon is advocated in case Mr. Moritz declines. James F. Gavegan will natur ally be renominated for the School Board. IN THE WARDS. Third Ward Democrats will meet in Wake’s Hall, Friday night, to consider nominations. William Conner and John Nickels are proposed for Councilman. The terms of a Republican Councilman and Trustee expire in this ward only. Fourth Ward Democrats are under stood to favor the renomination of Coun cilman Bernard J. Lilly and School Trus tee James F. Donovan without opposi tion. In the Fifth Councilman Charles Mc Gee’s term expires. Former Council man William A. Cassidy and School Trustee John J. Rigney, whose term ex pires, are the only Democrats proposed thus far. FLANIGAN’S CHANCES. Every Bayonne Democrat has known for months that President Patrick Flan igan was not likely to be wanted for a third term. His resignation from the Democratic Club recently was expected, owing to his antagonism to the party organization, coupled with his advocacy of the cause of a band styling them selves “Fusionists.” Mr. Flanigan as serts he does not want any nomination and that he has not attended any “Fu sion” meeting, but takes the position of being willing to await political light ning. Republicans of Bayonne will have their enrollment tomorrow evening. Ward nominations have not received consideration. This is true of practi cally every nomination, although Col. Charles W. Fuller is anxious to obtain the nomination for Representative in Congress and T. Morris Ten Broeck is willing to accept the nomination for As semblyman. -♦ KNOCKED OFF BY A TROLLEY David Nelson, a driver, of No. 220 Clinton street, was knocked from his truck in a trolley collision on Montgom ery street, last evennig.
