PLANK ROAD SETTLEMENT Definite Agreement in the Controversy Between Two Counties Reached at Last. DIFFICULTIES REMOVED E3S3X AcseacU to Hudson’s Demands on Division of Temporary Cost. At last, after a long and at times acri monious controversy, the dispute between Hudson and Essex over the plank road is practically ended. On Thursday after noon the Hudson Freeholders will hold a meeting and ratify the terms of the agreement made by the two counties with the Newark Plank Road Company, which is now controlled by the North Jersey Streep Railway Company, on the basis of Vice*Chancellor Stevenson’s re cent decision. The great obstacle in the way of an agreement haS been removed. This was the proportion each county should bear of the cost of maintaining and operating the road while the tempor ary agreement has been in force. THE STUMBLING BLOCK. This amounts to $27,000, for which the company has just put in a bill. The North Jersey, whose tracks are laid on the road, has agreed to bear one-third of that amount, or $9,000. Essex de manded that Hudson should bear one thind and she herself would bear the other third of the amount. This Hudson refused to do, as it claimed that Vice Chancellor Stevenson’s decision in the Plank Road case should govern the mat ter. As is well known, the Vice Chancellor fixed the proportion for the future main tenance and operation of the road, to be borne by the two counties at five eighths for Essex and three-eights for Hudson. John Gjriffin, counsel for the Hudson Freeholders, insisted that the $18,000 to be bom by the two counties should be ipportioned in accordance with the Vice-Chancellor’s decision. Essex ob jected to this, but after much haggling loseph W. Munn, Essex’s county counsel, yielded, and the matter will be settled on that basis. Essex will pay a little over $11,000 and Hudson a little less than $7,000. TEMPORARY AGREEMENT. Spencer Weart, counsel for the North Jersey, said this morning that the tem porary agreement which has been ex tended so often and which expires today, would be extended again for a week in orcler to allow time for the ratification of the permanent agreement. Counsel Munu is expected in Jersey City today to have Vice Chancellor Stevenson sign the decree he advised heretofore in the case. The Court would not sign it un til the counties had come to an agree ment. ROHDE LEAVES JAIL Wife Relents But Court Dis charges Him on the Merits of His Case. Clarence Kelsey applied to Vice-Chan cellor ritney this morning for an order discharging from the County Jail Ru dolph A. Rohde, who is confined on a writ of ne exeat taken out by his wife, Mildred K, in her suit for divorce. Last May Mrs. Hohde filed her petition and an affidavit, in which she set forth that her husband, who is a travelling sales man, was about to leave the State. Up on the affidavit Chancellor Magic issued the writ for Rohde’s arrest. A local newspaper printed the fact and Rohde read it, but made no effort to leave the State. He continued to reside at his home in West Hoboken, but his wife made no effort to have him arrested. One day in June he went to the home of his wife’s mother in Weehawken, where Mrs. Rhode had gone to live after be ginning her suit, to visit his children. While there he and his wife got into an' altercation, and she had him arrested for disorderly conduct. While in the Recor der’s court the next morning Mrs. Rhode had her husband arrested on the writ of ne exeat, and he has been in the County jail ever since. Mr. Kelsey submitted affidavits set ting forth these facts, together with one by Mrs. Rohde declaring that she wished to discontinue her suit and have her hus band discharged from the County Jail. A representative of Henry A. Mcllosh, the solicitor of Mrs. Rohde, objected to the discontinuance of the suit until some provision was made for paying his costs. Mr. Kelsey contended that Rohde's ar rest was illegal, as he was taken into custody while attending court and that there was not sufficient evidence to show that Rohde intended to leave the State. The Vice Chancellor ordered Rohde’s re lease on the merits of the case. Mr. Kelsey said that Rohde would file a j.f;. lion for divorce from liis wife on the ground of unfaithfulness. -♦——• JUDGE GROUSE’S CALENDAR There are sixty-five cases on the Ca lendar for trial in the First District Court tomorrow.

Bayonne Fusionists in Cau cus Strike the Former Democrats Aspira tions, _/ During a test rote or poll of those present at the latest secret meeting of Bayonne “Fusionistg,” the popularity and political aspirations of President Patrick Flanigan, of the Oity Council, who has openly affiliated with them, re ceived a severe blow. Those present were invited to express their choice, by dis tricts, fdr president <kt .4h« City Coun cil, a nomination the Democrats conclud ed to refuse the incumbent, who recently resigned from the organization of that party because he was disgruntled. Oue district out of fifteen in the city, in the lower end of the Second Ward, alone favored Mr. Flanigan’s nomination by “Fusionists,” as his own successor. Most of the other districts showed a pre ference for Alfred Varian, Chief of the Fire Department, whom the Republicans talk of nominating.Of oohrse, a nomina tion- was not really made, but the rat ing of Flanigan upon an office basis was overshadowed by an outsider, who is not identified vpth the Fusionists. me caucus meeting among me msiuers was held Friday evening at the offices of James J. Boylan, another divorced Dem ocrat, who is anxious to become the next Police Recorder of Bayonne. The question of choice for Recorder was also considered, only one district in Bayonne desiring the nomination of Jus tice of the Peace Boylan, who some time ago found he was not the candidate wanted by Democrats, and resigned from Bayonne City Democratic Club. Should the judgment of the leaders prevail, as expressed at this meeting, Mr. Flanigan and Mr. Boylan will be doomed to disap pointment among their latest political as sociates. “Fusionists” are expected to submit to Republicans political propositions cov ering every ward ticket and nominations for the city at large, expecting to receive something should a bargain be effected.

When the price of coal went np the people thought j they would have wood to fall back on, but now that prop has been knocked from under them. This morning it was announced to the wood men that wood has gone up $1 a cord and that orders are piling in so fast it is impossible to fill them. The manager of the Newman Mission when interviewed by a "News” reporter thW morning said:—“It is impossible to fill all the orders that have been sent in, and we are doing our best to fill those wtfhave taken. We are taking the men ont of the kitchen, the waiters, the men train the dormitories and the laundrymen and putting them to work in the wood yard, still we haven’t enough men for the amount of work. "We were promised 200 cords of wood Allis' morning but on account of the rise in the price they cannot deliver it.” Mr. Forrest, the manager of the Newman Mission, has put advertise ments in the daily papers explaining to the patrons why they cannot send the Wood. This is in reply to cany com plaints. The men who have wood wagons have also raised the price and nre doing a big business. It is probable-that many lum ber yards will sell firewood to heip fill tho demand. -A-— TROLLEY WANTS TO CROSS Chancery Asked to Let Hacken sack Line Across West Shore Tracks. Much of Vice-Chancellor Pitney’s time was taken up this morning on the appli cation of the Bergen Turnpike Company to have the court determine the manner in which the company shall cross the tracks of the West Shore Railroad, at Lucille Ferry with a trolley line. The turnpike belongs to the same people who control -the North Jersey Street Railway Company, and they are building a trolley line along the road from Hoboken to Hackensack. The trolley line is about completed aud the company wants to cross the tracks of the West Shore. Ex-Governor Werts, who represented the Turnpike Company, said that that company wanted to cross the railroad tracks either at grade or have the rail road tracks go over their rails. At this point the tracks of the Susquehanna and Western Railroad own parallel with the West Shore the distance between them being only sixty-one feet. The ground on all sides is marshy and most of the time completely under water, the turnpike being only about two feet above high water. This condition makes the question of a crossing a complicated one. James B. Vredenberg, who appeared for the West Shore, admitted that an un derground crossing was impossible and the question for the consideration of the Court was confined to the question whether the crossing should be at grade or whether overhead, and if overhead which road should elevate. David Young, president of the Turnpike Company, tes tified to these facts and was on the stand at recess. -* PAINTERS SCAFFOLD TURNS Thrown Thirty-four Feet, One May Die the Other Escapes as By a Miracle.

Both men are in St. Francis Hospital. They were painting near the fourth story of house No. 188 Eleventh street when one of the guide ropes snapped and the scaffold turned. Glockstein shot down headforemost and with the switness of an arrow. The back of his head hit the sidewalk and he was picked up uncon scious. When Burkstein was lifted he was conscious and cried, ‘‘How is Sam?” He tried to walk but was too weak. He was taken to the hospital. The doctors say he had a wonderful escape and is suffering chiefly from shock. -« GUESTS AT THE WASHINGTON Among the guests registered at the Hotel Washington are:—E. W.

REUBEN GOMES TO TOWN Becomes Chummy With a Stranger and Misses Money, But His Watch Is Recovered. “When Reuben Came to Town” is a song that would no doubt have prevented Thomas Fountain from losing a lot of property hud he heard it sung in the lit tle hamlet of Hamburg previous to his starting on a visit to New York Satur day. The first place he went to was the Dewey Theatre, and there he met George Kelly, of No. 187 East Eighty-sixth street. The, two became quite chummy. After drinking together a while Foun tain invited Kelly to come to Jersey City and put up for the night at an Exchange place hotel, where Fountain had left his satchel. , The 'two came over the river and went to several places. Fountain left $8 in cash, a check for ?32 and a handsome gold watch and chain with the clerk of the hotel for safe keeping. • Kelly suggested retiring as the hour was late, and both went upstairs. Foun tain went to sleep immediately, but Kel ly was troubled with insomnia. He tos sed about a while and then went down stairs, told the clerk at the desk that Fountain was worrying about his valua bles and had sent him to get them. The clerk turned them over to Kelly, and he disappeared. Fountain slept on. Kelly was found by Patrolman Haw kins yesterday afternoon, sound asleep on the steps of the First National Bank Building. He had the watch, but part of the $8 was missing. It had evidently been spent for a full cargo of wet goods. Patrolman Hawkins steered Kelly to the First precinct station house, where he was put in an iron cell to await his discharge this morning.

Fountain did not appear in court this morning and Judge IIoos held Kelly for further examination tomorrow, when it is hoped Fountain will appear. HOLY NAME ELECTION. Father McDermott.

The Radiations of Radinm, The radiations of radium-have proved to be of rare value iu medicine. It is found that a metallic screen interposed between the eye and a vial containing radium iu no way prevents the healthy eye from seeing it. If the retina of a blind person be healthy, it will be ef fected by radium rays even though the cornea be opaque to light rays. Conse quently the raidia-ions from radium can be used to discover whether or not the retina of a blind person is healthy.
