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.”

NEW HOBOKEN
SCHOOL
No Protest Prom Citizens
Against a $130,000
.Building for No. 8.
BONO ISSUE TO BE MADE
Public Prefers a High Price
to Delay—Need for
Speedy Action.
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.

UNITED IN
BAYONNE
Democrats Practically a

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.
