MITCHELL STANDS FOR IT Republican Commis sioner Tries to Pre vent the Inflicton j of Fines for f Flagrant Dislinqu ency. - MEANING OF THAT SHAKE-DP Dr. McGill and Chief Murphy Broke Up the Arrang mectand Secured Pre servation of Evidence of Guilt. j MEAN ATTACK ON FOLEY Efforts to Make the Superin t^ndant of Telegraph Re sponsible Instead of t he Protected Patrolmen. On September 11 n general shake-up of sergeants and roundsmen was made by Chief Murphy at the request of the Police Board. At the time no explana tion was given further than the stereo typed phrase, “For the good of the de partment.” Considerable speculation followed. At last night’s meeting of the Board facts developed which indicated that the shake-up mentioned was badly needed. Eight patrolmen were tried for failing to pull their signal boxes at various times on various dates. Every man was found guilty and fined. VERY QUEER. When imposing sentence President Til den made' the following address:—“It is a remarkable circumstances and one which appears almost unfathomable to this Board that immediately after the re cent transfer of sergeants and rounds men the Board should be called upon to try such an avalanche of men for failure to pull their signal boxes. The next time you will not get off so easily.” This speech caused surprise among the spectators. The majority of those pres ent concluded that President Tilden’s re marks were a general attack on the in tegrity and proper performance of duty of every sergeant and roundsman in the department. It was a practical, accu sation that previous to the shake-up the raen on duty at the desk would not. re port to the Chief, so that charges could be preferred, officers who failed to pull a box. During the trials Commissioner Mitchell seemed to be with the men and tried to help them in their endeavors to go free. A number of the men pleaded that the boxes were out of order, but tes timony given by Superintendent of Tele graph Foley and the sergeants who re ported the men showed conclusively that such was not the case, AFTER FOLEY’S SCALP. Commissioner Mitchell disagreed with Superintendent Foley on several poipts, causing many to letnark that the Ci m missioner Was out for Foley’s scalp and trying to show that he had not done his work properly in inspecting the signal; boxes. *\ '-'Hi The Commissiqper, if he had such in tentions was entirely unsuccessful, as Fo ley plainly explained every point in eon ■N nection with the system and proved that in every instance where a box is properly pulled it must show some registration on the tape unless the wires are down. In the cases reported against the patrolmen, Foley was not notified that the lines ii ere out of order as a test made of the boxes in question by the sergeants showed them to be working properly. It is understood that Commissioner Mitchell, when the Board had retired to arrive at a'decision in the cases, made strenuous objection to fining the men, but, finding the two other members of the Board firmly determined to see that justice was meted out he finally voted for the infliction of the penalties. Superintendent Foley was recently ap pointed to the rank of sergeant after vig orous opposition by Commissioner Mitch ell. and was much gratified to see that the decision of the board in these cases left not the slightest blemish on his rep utation. McGII,L’S GOOD WORK. Dr. McGill was directly responsible for the recent transfer of sergeants and roundsmen. He had for some time sus pected that the men were being protect ed by their superiors in many cases. When he told Chief Murphy of his sus picions. the Chief immediately co-opera ted with the Doctor in endeavoring to have any existing evil traced out, the of fender punished, if caught, and if not, means taken to prevent the future repe tition of the offense. HOW THEY WERE CAUGHT. Simultaneously with the issuance of the order for the transfer, an order was issued making it compulsory for the cap tain of each precinct to retain the tape, on which thg. registration of the calls gent in by the ofncWfi» ma3e,'T5f at least fifteen days. This order was the cause of the large inumber of trials last night. The sergeants on the desks at the var ious stations recognized the fact that should an officer fail to report and they try to protect him, they would be liable -to be brought up on charges for not re porting the officer. The tape would be indisputable evidence, as it would show that the call was not made. There is no chance of any sergeant be ing brought up on charges for failing to report men previous to the order going in force, as the tapes have all been de stroyed. The men tried and the fines imposed last night were:— William Keefe, First precinct; Philip Steltman, Second precinct; Jacob Heisehe, Third precinct; Eledza Tohse, Fifth precinct, and Harry Archibald, Seventh precinct, each fined three days’ pay. Joseph Collins, Second precinct, and Willard Sopher, of the Sixth precinct; fined two days’ pay each. John J. Keefe, of the Fourth precinct, received a fine of only one day’s pay. -• WHICH WILL IT BE ? Mr. Lembeck Says Speer or Romaine—Plots Will Be Bought for No. 11 School. “Wk does the Board of Finance in tend W do in regard to purchasing ad ditional land for the construction of the proposed new school No. 11 on Bergen Square?” asked a “News” reporter oi Commissioner Lembeck this morning. “Two properties lxave been offered to the city—the Romaine and the Speer plots,” he announced. “The committee has decided to buy one of them, but we will not buy until we receive an offer of what we believe to be a fair price and the cheapest price.” This indicates that the committee be lieves that the Speer property which fronts Bergen avenue, adjoining the school building on the north is as de sirable an acquisition as the Romaine property, which fronts on Academy street and runs north and south at the line of the school. The committee will probably report in buying the property which can be ob tained at the lower price. TURNING OUT CITIZENS. Judge Blair, in the Court of-Common Please yfKerday naturalied forty-eight aliens and rejected eight. The naturali zation will be continued tomorrow morn ing between 9 and 11 o’clock. The last day allotted by law for na turalization is Ocotber 3. Therefore all aliens who seek to become citizens should apply before that date. -* An Old and Well Tried Remedy. Mr*.

A striking trolley pole nearly caused a panic today at noon in a Court House car. Just as the car passed under the trestle that crosses Newark avenue opp *• site Mary Benson Park, the trolly wheej slipped tlyj wits and the j>ole sjvuuj with such force that a collision with tin trestle snapped the pole in two. There was a terrific sound like thun der as the broken peie fell on top of tlic car, which in itself was enough to scarf the life out of the women, but when sim ultaneously the electric light bulbs broke with a report like so many pistols, an-: all was in darkness, even the men lost courage. There was a stampede for tin door au4j», the conductor found himself lmgginglfc dozen or more women all at once in a rain endeavor to hold back the crowd. The conductor explained the trouble os best he coulld, and the passengers went back to their passengers and umbrellas to await the arrival of another car t( push them up the Hill. One or two worn en almost fainted, but there were no mon serious results to life and limb. FIFTH WARD ENTHUSIASTIC Democrats Put Off Their Meet ing to Attend the Enroll ment.

NO TEST OFJHE LAW Judge Dixon Refuses an Ear ly Hearing on the One Head Street and Water Infamy. •GEORGE L RECORD SMILES It Looks as If the Election Tangle Would be Forced On the People—No ■ Reason Given. Walter McDermott, representing his father, Congressman Allan L. McDer mott, and Corporation Council George L. Record, in accordance with an order to show cause why a writ of certiorari should not be issued to test the validity of the Single Headed Street and Water Board Act, made returnable at Trenton today, appeared before Justice Dixon iu the Supreme Court. It was understood that an early date would be set by the Court for argument. Justice Dixon, however, refused to set an early date, saying that it would be im possible to do so. Mr. McDermott said he understood that an early date was to be set to hear both sides. Although Mr. Record went along he didn't appear very anxious to have the Court set an early date for argument. On the contrary he smiled in a sort of satis fied way when the court refused to es tertain Mr. McDermott’s application. Congressman McDermott was not at his office when a reporter for ’‘The Xews” called at one o'clock today. His son said:—“The action of the Court i^ refusing to fix an early date for argu ment surprised me.. I thought .every thing was agreeable to all parties concerned.” “Do you think a date will be set be fore Election Day?”'Mr. McDermott was asked. “Xo, sir; certainly not,” was the young lawyer's reply. “It means, then, that the issue is lijtely go to a vote of the. people ryitheut its to t^feVconstitntionality of TO PROTECT ROADS. Freeholders Do Not Intend to B$ ignored by the Water Company. Board of Chosen Freeholders, Hudson County, Jersey City, Sept. 25, 1902. To the Editor of "The Jersey City News":— Two months ago the representatives of the Jersey City Water Company of fered the Board of Freeholders of Hud son county a compensation of $3,000 tS enter upon the county road to lay the new water pipe. They produced a plan on which it was shown that the new water pipe would be thirty inches (2Yj feet) above the present level of our road. The Freeholders took this matter into consideration and awaited further ex planations from the water company, be cause bv elevating the pipe two feet and a half $3,000 would never pay to change the present level to come up thirty inches for a height of 0,000 feet. No more was heard from the water company. It went to work without a permit and the present trouble is the re sult. The Board of Freeholders intend to protect the county property and to do their duty, even if a New York concern takes possession of the highways of Hudson county protected by local police. L. I>.

I A jury in the First District Court yes terday afternoon awarded Thomas M. Petero $40 damages in his suit for slan der ngniust Antonio; Loori. He alleged that the defendant referred to him in such uncomplimentary terms as “thief” and “robber.” Loori attempted to justify this slander by saying that Petro served time in jail for larceny. Records . were produced showing that one Mastroppro had been > sent to jail for this offence. Petro admitted that ho had dropped the Mastro from his name and- was now known as Thomas M. Petro.

DEMOCRATS ENROLL Heavy Registration pf Voters in Anticipation of the Open Primaries. BUSY IN ALL SECTIONS Lively Incidents in Hoboken —Rival Candidates Play Sharp Games. The Democratic enrollment took place yesterday between the hours of 4 P. M. and S P. M. All over the county citizens turned out in large numbers to get their names on the enrollment books so they may be able to vote for their candidates at the party primaries. Much energy was shown by the committeemen in Jersey ■City to get the voters out. In North Hudson, where everybody has gone wild over the probable nomination of. John Zeller of Guttenberg for Sheriff, the Democrats enrolled in goodly numbers. The best of" feeling prevailed all along the line in this city, Bayonne, North and West Hudson. In Hoboken there was some excitement as a result of the laud able ambition of several enthusiastic Democrats who want to run for County Committeemen. They made strenuous efforts to see that all their Democratic friends would be in a position to vote for them at the primaries. DOWN TOWN. The enrollment in the First, Fourth and Fifth Wards last evening was very large. In fact, the leaders were sur prised at the outpouring of Democrats, who came from their homes in the un ipleasant weather so that they could vote at the coming Democratic primaries. In every precinct politics were dis cussed* and it was the general opinion of all the men who gathered in groups about their respective polling places that the nprt Sheriff of Hudson County would be John Zeller. John J. Heavey, how ever, had many supporters. Voters dis cussing the- respective candidates were all of one mind, however, in declaring that, no, matter what candidate the party for ftfe cde(Son”o?’?}^ whole tiek^^lt was very noticeable last evening that complete harmony exists in these three wards and it is expected that on Election Day the majorities from each will be much larger than they have ever been before. THE HORSESHOE LIVELY. In spite of the weather there was a large turnout of Democrats in the Second and Third wards last night to become enrolled to vote at the primaries. In the Second ward there was a large enroll ment of the young voters, who are taking an active interest in polities just now. Over one-half of the voters of the Third ward were enrolled. IN GREENVILLE. In every one of the eight precincts in the Seventh ward there was much ac tivity last evening. The committeemen with their assistants were kept busy en rolling the names of those who are en titled- to vole at the coming primaries. Not less than.on*- hundred Democrats en rolled in each precinct. This shows con clusively that the Democrats are awake and are taking mpch interest in the com ing campaign. * The results wen indeed gratifying to the party workers. They were not back ward in declaring that the interest shown by the Democratic voters was as en couraging sigu and that .the ward would be in the Doiuov^ tic column this fall. BERGEN WARDS. Enrollments were particularly heavy in the Eighth and Ninth Wards of Jer say City, both Republican strongholds. In the Eighth Ward 403 names were en rolled on the First, Second and Third Districts, 102 in the Fourth District, 99 in the Fifth District, 151 in the Sixth District, 102 in thegSeventh District, 109 in the Eighth District, 90 in the Ninth District, 105 in he Tenth District, and 100 in the Eleventh District. Almost 1,100 names were enrolled in the Ninth Ward. In the First District LETTER HEADS. v BUSINESS CARDS. BILL HEADS. ©ENVELOPES. CIRCULARS LAW BRIEFS. " PAMPHLETS. PROGRAMMES.

The Democratic enrollment throughout the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Wards was somewhat heavier than the average enrollment. prettTwarm, Some Excitement at the Hoboken Primaries Books Took Wings, There was considerable excitement at the Democratic enrollment in Hoboken last night. In many of the wards con tests are on for the seats in the County Committee and each candidate was anxious to have all his friends enrolled last night so that they could vote at the primaries. As a result of the opposition somo lively scenes occurred. In the Second district of the Fifth ward the enrollment book was carried off before the enrollment was half over. The committeeman in this district is Fire Commissioner James Whalen. His oppo nent is George La Pointe. The enroll ment officers were Martin Whalen and William Ryan. They had their head quarters in Tenth street near Park ave nue. About nve oclocK uommitreeman Whalen told the two enrollment officers that he would take charge while they went to supper. “Shortly after they had gone,” said Whalen, “I noticed a friend of mine quarreling with Lawyer Michael Cannon. I got up to see what the trouble was about and the moment my back was turned.Cannon grabbed the book and ran away with, it. We secured a new book and continued with the enrollment.” Lawyer Cannon, who is one of La Pointe’s adherents, was not at his office in the Hudson Trust Building, in Hobo-' ken this morning. At Tenth street and Park avenue, in the Second district of the Fifth there was more excitement. Here the com mittee fight was three cornered. The contestants are Frank La Pointe, pres ent committeeman; Samuel Throckmor ton and John Kivlon. The enrollment took place in a rear room of a building at Eighth street and Willow avenue. A window of the room opens close to the sidewalk. The enrollment was conducted through the window, no one being per mitted in the room except the enrollment officers. There was no shed over the window, and consequently those who de ' alred to euroit 'twd to stand ift the pour ing rain. This arrangement did not appear to please La Pointe’s followers, and it was evident early in the evening that trouble was ahead. At tjje moment the enrollment closed a rush was made to get into the room through the saloon next door. But those in charge of the en rollement were prepared and they quietly jumped through the window with the book while the crowd was going through the barroom. The window of the room was broken during the scrimmage and “Connie” Tahen had his hand cut. CRUSHED IN* THE WHEEL. The Boy Likely to Lose His Hand Caught in the Machinery. Fifteen-year-old John McEuerny, of No. 90 Ocean avenue, may lose his rtgat hand as the result of a horrible accident yesterday afternoon, while employed in the confectionary establishment of John Clarke, No. 138 Ocean avenue. 'The lad got his right hand between two cog wheels of a large machine and before the machine was stopped the boy’s hand was crushed. He yelled with pain while the wheels were reversed in order to release his hand. Dr. Lambert dressed the hand and had the boy sent to Christ Hospital in a coach. At the hospital it was found that every finger had been brushed and that it may be necessary to amputate the hand. It seems that the boy was the victim of his own carelessness. He got too close to the machine and before he knew it his hand was drawn between the cog wheels. CAMPAIGN NOTES. The North Jersey Stret Railroad Asso ciation met last evening in Diana Hall, Ocean and Myrtle avenues, and endorsed Prank Daly, for renominatiou as Demo cratic committeeman for the First pre cinct of the Seventh ward. Duly has held the place two years. Ex-Assemblyman John Toilers retains all his old time popularity in the Hud son City section. He takes au active interest in politics and there is little do ing in either political camp that he is not one of the first to know about. The Democratic Gomitmteetaen of the ^Second ward will meet tonight in the clubhouse of the Second Ward Club. Plans for the ward campaign will be for mulated. It may be decided, too, who the choice for the Asembly uomin.if >n will be. The committeemen in the ward seem to favor Lawyer William D. Kelly, son of Tolice Captain F. Kelly.

PUBLIC HEARING NEXT Low Drifting Towards Can tor’s “Labor” Clauses — Company Will Make No More Con cessions. All the good work done in the matter of the franchise for the Pennsylvania Railroad Company's tunnel from this city to Manhattan was undone yesterday, when, by the advice of Seth Low. the Rapid Transit Commission rescinded its resolution favoring.the contract. Mayor Low says he wants a public hearing on the franchise. “There ought to be a public hearing upon this franchise. From what has transpired so far it seems to me that the public would be justified iu saying that this board has given no opportunity what ever to tiie public to express its opinion upon the terms of the franchise,” said the Mayor. President Alexander E. Orr, of the of the Rapid Transit Commission, said:— “I think the public has had ample notice of all *that we purposed doing and have done in connection with this franchise. It is apparent that the public knew what was going on because we have received many communications and resolutions from public bodies. However, I would be willing and glad to invite the public to discuss this matter with us. This whole matter must now be treated in the light of a new franchise and let everything concerning it be openly dis cussed.” SOP FOR CABOK UNIONS. Comptroller Grout said after the meet ing that he presumed that the Mayor wished that a full opportunity be given to the labor unions and every one else interested in the project, to make known their views. Borough President Cantor, who has been fighting the franchise, giving as his reasons the failure to insert an eight h'our and prevailing-rate-of-wages clause, said:—* “I had a long • talk with the Mayor., yesterday upon the subject of this fran chise and I urged upon him ^he neces sity of insisting upon the labor clauses. In t|ew of the action taken by the Mayor today I shall not draw up for presenta tion to the Aldermen, as I intended, a minority report in opposition to a report which the majority of the Aldermen’s committee intended to submit recom mending the granting of the franchise.” P. R. R.’S POSITION. Vice President Green of the Pennsyl vania Company said:—Whatever devel opments may arise. I am in a posi tion to say authoritatively that the Penn sylvania Company will make no mere concessions than it has already made. Our position has been clear to the Rapid Transit Commission and to the Alder men of New York, and it now rests with the authorities of the city to decide whether or not they want the Penn sylvania Company to connect its system with the metropolis.” --. MASONIC SITE NOT CHOSEN. Selection of a building site for a Ma sonic and public hall in Bayonne was last evening postponed by Bayonne Lodge, No. 99, F. and A. M. An amount equal to one per cent, on the total cost esti mated at .$19,590, was voted in payment for plans anil specifications. While the meeting was largely attended, stormy weather kept many away. No date was fixed for decisive action. -• WEATHER INDICATIONS NEW YORK. Sept. 26, 1902.—For^ cast for the thirty-six hours ending at S P .M.
