_ j Congressman McDermott Advises the County Clerk on the Single Head Commission Vote. STATUTES CONFLICT « “For” and “Against” Will Appear on Bach Ticket and Git the Matter Into Court. Conrgessman Allan McDermott has sent this letter to County Clerk Maurice Stack'in regard to the tjallots to be used at the voting upon the acceptance or re jection of the single headed Commis sion:— “October 0, 1902. Hon Maurice J. Stack, County Clerk, Jersey City, N. .T.:— Dear Shf—The Board of Finance of Jersey City, having passed a resolution to submit the adoption of Chapter 25S of the Laws of 1902 to a vote of the electors of Jersey City, at the next .gen eral election, and such resolution hiv ing been approved .by the Mayor of that city and certified to yon, I am asKed; for m.v opinion of your duty in the pre mises. The fourth section of the act provides that persons desiring to vote upon the question shall do so by “depositing tlieir ballots,”'and that, to use the words of the act, “those who are in favr of the acceptance of this act “and the 'grants and the powers therein contained shall each deposit a bollot containing the words ‘for the Street and Water Com missioner Act of 1902,’ written or print ed thereon, and those who are opposed shall each deposit their ballot with the words ‘Against the Street and Water Commissioner Act of 1902,’ written or printed thereon.” The fifth section provides that you shall, upon receiving a copy of a reso lution for submission, “cause the ques tion of the adoption or rejection of this act to be printed upon the official bal lots to be used at the ensiling election in the manner provided by this act and by the laws of this State in relation to eleet'0-13.” If the act provided any man ner or printing ballots, this statutory di rection to you would be plain, and you could easily aid “each” voter to deposit “their ballot.” It may be that the author of this re markable legislation, intent upon single lieadedness, meant that each should east a ballot for all. During file recent argu ment before Justice Cojlins, several ways of printing were suggested by the Cor poration Counsel of Jersey City, the first being that a double supply of ballots should be printed. xu law for Double ballots. If there could be found any law for this course, I would advise it: but the natnber of ballots that may be printed at public expense is limited, as is the number that may be handed, by election officers, to a voter before he enters a booth. It was next suggested that the ballots might be printed, under the act of 1902, so that each would contain both propositions in .full. But the act says that each ballot shall contain one sen, tence, and does not authorize the cross ing out of anything. Then it was suggested that the bal lots might be printed with both proposi tions omitted, and the voters left to write in the word “for” or “against.” Bat the act says that the voter is to cast a bal lot with certain words “printed or writ ten” thereon, and it is clear that if the proposition may be partly printed and partly written, all the secrecy with which the Balot Reform law seeks to sur round the voter wonld be instantly nulli fied. for each ballot could be so arranged as to be asily identified. If any of these propositions had any merit it could not be followed by you, for (since there is not any other method pro vided by the act) the only way in which yon can print anything is under the gen eral election law, and I therefore ad vise you that the balots should be print ed in the following form:— ' FOR AGAINST. The Street and Water Commissioner Act of 1902. CAN’T BE REJECTED. A ballot thus printed cannot, because of such printing, be legally rejected by election officers. Whether a voter cart effectively rote for or against the Act of 1902 by erasing “for” or “against” upon such a ballot is a matter with which you have no official concern. In my judgment, h£ cannot, and I ad vise the printing in this form because I cannot find even a shadow of sup port for auy^ other way. and because the course suggested will enable those who advocate the act to present the question fo the Supreme Court if they desire any other form of submission. Respectfully, allan l. McDermott. FOR CUNNiNGHAM Indorsed for Alderman by the First Ward Demo crats-Plan a “Stag.” the First Ward Democratic Club held a well attended meeting last evening in the clubhouse, Washington and Morris streets. President Frank J. McKenna presided and the attendance numbered over* one hundred. The committee, composed of James McGovern, John Masker, James Dough erty and John F.

Betts, pastor of. the People’s Baptist Church of Bayoune, has decided to resign his pastorate and remove to Raleigh, X. C.’ While formal announcement has not bee- made, the clergyman's intentions are known to sev eral churchmen. The Rev. Mr. Betts admits that he wishes to accept a desira ble pastoral call at Raleigh, his native place. His wife came from Raleigh, and one of their children is being educated there. The Rev. Mr. Betts has been dis posing of his business interests in Bay onne with this object in view. It is ex pected the resignation will take effect in a fortnight. The People’s Baptist Church is on West Twenty-third street, near Avenue D. Twelve years ago Mr. Betts came to Bayonne and started a mission, the outgrowth of which is the present church. The society was admitted to the Baptist Association over six months ago, being formerly the People’s Church. -A RECISTER TODAY. This is the second day for the regis tration of voters. If you are not registered you cannot vote. Registration booths open 1 P. M. Registration booths close 9 P. M. ♦ -A FREEHOLDERS_FOR BAYONNE John T. Dempsey and F. H. Kim* merly Mentioned as Candidates. Bayonne Democrats are canvassing the availability of Frank H. ICmmerly and John T. Dempsey in connection with the party nominations for Freeholders. The recent decision of the Supreme Court is expected to restore the Bayonne repre sentatives to two. Freeholder Patrick Nugent had been the only man consider ed prior to the decision. Mr. Dempsey has been an undertaker in Bayonne many years. He never was a candidate for office. Mr. Kimmerly is the proprietor and manager of Arlington Park, on Newark Bay shore. V ANOTHER SPUR WANTED. Atlantic Brass Co. Petitions for a Track Aeross Phillip Street. The Atlantic Brass Company has pe titioned the Street and Water Board for permission to lay a single track spur across Phillip street south of Comnnmi paw avenue, to connect with the Jersey Central tracks. Mayor Fagan went to Lafayette this morning to look the ground over. He said he wanted to be thoroughly familiar with the law of the land before taking any official action. MAY LAY PIPES. -Freeholders Agree Upon Terms With the Jersey City Water Company. The de'facto Board of Freeholders held a brief session last evening preceded by a short caucus, at which County Counsel Griffin explained the present status of the Board. A resolution offered by Freeholder Fincke and passed granted the Jersey City Water Co. privilege to lay its main for the new water supply along the coun ’ ty road, from the Erie Railroad crossing at Secaucus to Tonnele avenue. In return for the privilege the Water Company must pay the county $3,000 and widen the road an additional fifteen feet without disturbing the present macadam roadway. The pipe line must be covered to a deftth of three feet and the road above filled to a level to corre spond with the rest of the thoroughfare. This ends the long fight in which tha vigilance and determination of the Free holders secured for the county conces siouse that the Water Company claimed was theirs without the asking. — - _ HARRISON AVENUE SEWER Street ahd Water Board to Re advertise for Proposals for a Needed Improvement. . ••••. ’•* •" At the recommendation of C. A. Van Keuren, the Street and Water Board will probably decide this afternoon to re advertize for proposals for the work of constructing a sewere in Harrison ave nue. The Board awarded the contract to E. W. Conlon three years ago. Mayor Hs ppsed the cntract because he said that to great a share of the expense would be chnrged against the city. Conlan’s contract was held up. So long a time has elapsed since he sub mitted his proposal that he can not be held to his bid. The Board of Finance made provision in the last tax budget for the work, which will cost about ¥5,000. NEW BOOKS AT THE LIBRARY Report for tile Weak Ending Octo ber 6, 1902.

DYKE MUDDLE. »——— ■ : * L> &*■ % * City Engineer Makes Public His Last Letter From Engineer Ferris. Garwood Ferris, engineer in construc tor of the new water works, forwarded to the Street and Water Board today an other letter from Chief Engineer Edlow W. Harrison, of the Jersey City Water Supply Company, relative to the Bars'p anny dyke controversy. The letter was in response to a com munication written by Mr. Ferris to Mr. Harrison on September 16. It was us follows:— I do not agree that the contract re quires any construction by the contrac tor, on the reservoir, for tije future sup ply of seventy millions. The contrac tor’s proposal, quoted by you, as to rais ing the dam, was a part of his Plan No. 2, which was not accepted, by the city. Under Plan No. 1, which was accepted, the duties of the contractor, as to pro vision for future enlargement, do not in clude any part of the construction of res ervoirs for that purpose. We are will ing to adopt plans which may be adapted to future enlargement, where we can do. so without additional expense, but the contract does not require this of us. “The blue print to which you refer as being in your possession, and dated No vember 11, 1899, is, as we suppose, a sketch prepared by some draughtsman in the office of the contractor. It was nev er submitted by the contractor jo the city, the plans required by the contract having been submitted in writing by the Chief Engineer of the contractor, signed by him. I ant advised that the city engineer has no such power of rejection under the contract as is stated in your letter. I am also advised that you are in error in stating that if the contractor should con struct tlie work indicated by you, or any other work not called for by the contract and specificaions, he could recover for it. I am advised that the city engineer has no power to authorize additional work, or to run up charges against the city, for it. V The contractor proposes to proceed with the construction according to the contract and specifications, and on the plans submitted, and declines to con struct on a plan for a larger supply as not required by the contract. Very truly yours, E. W. HARRISON, Chief Engineer J. C. W. S. Co.” A _ WORK ON THE WATER PLANT Engineer Ferris Submits His Report of What Was Done in September. Engineer Garwood Ferris submitted the following report to the Board of Street and Water Commissioners this afternoon regarding the progress of the construction of the new water works dur ing September:— During September storms and high water more or less interfered with the progress of work on the masonry dam at i loon ton. yet, nevertheless, a very satis factory advance was made. As previousfy referred to you, about 15,000 cubic yards of masonry were laid in August. In September 10,000 cubic yards were laid. These amounts are exceptional, and yet even better results are looked for. During September 4.949 feet of 72-inch steel pipe were laid. The status of the pipe portion of the contract is as fol lows:— _ , . Feet. Total quantity to be laid.91,531 Material forwarded to pipe shop 76,193 Pipe delivered in line. 69.470 Pipe laid in trench.63J49 There remains to be laid, in order to complete the line from the E. J. Junc tion to the Bergen Reservoir, about 24. 400 feet of pipe, which includes two river crossings.

NINE SAVED FROM DEATH Policemen Get the Tenants Qut of a Burning Flat Buil^ng. .? _ DROPPED FROM A SHED Rescuer Charlock and Brother Offteers Repeatedly Cheer ed by the Crowd. Several Greenville policemen covered themselves with glory early this morn ing when they rescued nine persons from certain death in a burning, three-story flat at No. 107 Ocean avenue. The large crowd that gathered even at that early hour cheered the policemen, as they lowered the tenants to places of safety. The brave policemen are Patrolmen Dunn and Donnelly, Acting Patrolman Charlock, and Roundsman O’Connor. The rescued persons were William Brown, his wife and three children, and William Doll, his wife and two children. Not oile of them would have escaped suffocation had it not been for the po liceman. It was shortly after one o’clock that Patrolman Dunn saw smoke issuing from the cellar of the brick flat. He sent in ait alarm and then blew his whistle for assistance. Charlock. Don nelly and O’Connor responded. By this time smoke was pouring out of the windows syid cellar doors. . RESCUERS’ WORK. There is a shed over the front of the saloon leading to the second floor. Char lock climbed up one of the posts and reached the shed. He smashed open one of the windows and found William Brown, his wife and three small children lying on the parlor floor overcome from smoke. They had got out of bed and were groping their way to the floor below when the powerful smoke almost suffo cated them. Charlock climbed into the room and pulled Brown to the shed and dropped him to the sidewalk where the three policemen caught him. Charlock re turned to the room and one by one car ried the mother and three children to the slied. They were also dropped into the arms of the policemen. SAVES OTHERS. Just as Charlock was about to de scend a window in the floor above was thrown open and William Doll poked his head out and yelled for help. “My wife and children will burn to death,” he yelled. Charlock directed him to drop his wife and Children to the roof and he would catch them. Mrs. Doll is a small woman and Charlock had no difficulty in catch ing her. The children were dropped and lowered to file sidewalk in safety. Doll jumped to the roof of the shed and Char lock broke his fall. The entire building was black with smoke by this time and the firemen had great difficulty in getting into the cellar to fight the flames. The blaze was discovered in the rear of the cellar. Tne wood work was blaz ing and a large part of the beams and windows had been btimed away. POLICEMEN CHEERED. In less than half an hour the fire was put out and the families had returned to their homes, The greatest excitement reigned in that neighborhood during the fire. Captain Nugent complimented his men on their work in rescuing the tenants and the crowd were loud in their praises of the officers. The damage to the house will amount to $500. ST.

Justice Lehane spent an interesting afternoon yesterday getting signers to his petition of nomination. He had no trou ble at all securing his first twelve names but he ran against a snag when he came to the thirteenth. He was among his friends in the City Hall at the time. A half-dozen whom lie asked to be the thir teenth signer refused on the ground that they didn’t care to run the risk of hav ing “something terrible” happen to them. They were perfectly willing to write their names further down the list, they said, but begged to be excused from the hoodoo position. Finally Forrest A. Rice, a clerk in the Tax Board office, made the genial Justice happy by taking a chance on No. 13. He said he wasn’t superstitious and guessed no harm would come to him by obliging a friend. -*- • GUESTS AT THE WASHINGTON Among the guests registered at the Ho tel Washington are:—M. Tilden, G. F.
