COES OVER Mr. Edwards Becomes 111 and the Tax Board Votes to Adjourn. BUNGLING FOR THE CITY Statements by Harrison and Rscord Not Allowed and the Latter Loses His Bet. Corporation Counsel George L. Record lost the wager which he made with Ma jor Carl Lents ,of the State Board of Taxation, last week that former State Senator William D. Edwards, counsel for the Central Railroad Company of New Jersey, would not complete his case at yesterday’s hearing before the State Board of the company's appeal for a re duction of the valuations assessed against the Central's property known as lot 22, block 2154. on Communipaw ave nue, and lot 1, block 1497, on New York Bay. . Mr. Edwards pot in. one .of .the hardest day's work of his life to keep the prom ise he made to the Commissioners that he would finish h'is' cade' Without asking for an adjournment.- - But it was at a terrible sacrifice to. himself. . For many hours he piled questions to experts for the railroad whom he called to the stand and made many telling poihfs'. Although handicappel by the face that-he has not been enjoying the best of health for sev eral months he remained at his post. The strain was great, and after all his testimony was in he "nearly collapsed. The Commissioners and-lawyers notic ed that Mr. Edwards looked pale and hagged about 7 o'clock, .and.suggested an adjournment. The city was then having its innings with Engineer Edlow W. Harrison, the city’d esdel-t', on the stand. They suggested an adjournment, but the 'plucky attorney tor the railroad said he was willing to continue providing he had a short rest. The Commissioners were agreeable to the proposition to" adjourn; and even Mr. Record didn’t protest when he realized that Mr. Edwards was physically unable to go ahead. As a result of losing his bet, Mr. Rec ord will treat Major Lentz to a dinner at Sherrys. . THE TESTIMONY. The State Board took, a .recess short ly after 2 P. M., as told in yesterday's issue oi “The Jersey City News,” reas sembling less than ah'hour la'ter with H. W. Doughty, Land and Tax -Agent for the Central, on the stand. He testified that the railroad. wpuld have no imme diate use for the lands in question. Emmett Smith, who gave testimony last week, was recalled' and questioned aa to the prices paid by the P. It. R. for their acquisitions, of. lajijl. along the shore front. He said that price per acre was about $1,520. He cited two other purchases of water front property —the Van Bnskijk property at Constable Hook and Guffy Petroleum Company’s purchase on the Kill von Kull. The former consisting of thirteen acres up land and ninety-two acres under water, was acquired at a total cost of $743 per acre. The Guffy property cost when improved about $0,000 an acre. Mr. Smith said that it would cost from $7,000 to $12,000 an acre to put the Central’s land in the same condition as Similar lands improved. The witness laid great stress on the fact that the water was shallow off shore. He said: “The Central’s land would be more valuable if the deep water was within 1,000 feet of the shore. If the company had less land and more water it would be better off. A great acreage costs more for improvement*.” VALUE OF FACTORY SITES. William Culver qualified as an expert on railroad and factory site lands. He testified that be lias been acquainted with land values here since 1864. He said that he had received from $3,250 to $5,000 an acre for factory sites. He knew of sites near a railroad or ferry having solid foundations which brought as high as $6,000 an acre. He never made a sale of property adjacent to the eCntral’s tract which he thought was worth about $1,500 an acre. On cross-examination he was unable to say what was the cheapest price for which land on New York harbor could be acquired. He said that the New York, Susquehanna and Western Rail road Company’s terminal at Edgewater brought from $4,000 to $5,000 an acre. He considered the Edgewater tract su perior to the Central’s because its loca tion was better. MR. EDWARD RESTS. Mr. Edwards, sworn as a witness, tes tified that $1,600 an acre was paid for fifteen ares of land on the Robinson Blair tract in 1896. F. C. Wolbert, a well known real es tate broker and auctioneer, of No. 47 Montgomery street, said that he pur chased for the American Type Foundry Qpmpany forty lots adjoining the Lehigh Talley’s property, paying $7,000 an acre. The land was improved. He didn’t con 350 'o California. The Lackawanna Railroad offers re $101.30. Tickets on sale September 28th, 29th and 30th. Chicago, Illinois, and return, $19.

Speaking of the northern tract, Mr. Wolbert said that if he spent $1,000 to advertise this property for sale he felt sure he wouldn’t get a bidder. He thought that it might be worth from $2,000 to $3,000 an acre. \ Mr. Edwards then rested his case for the Central. FOR THE CITY. Engineer Edlow W. Harrison, the city’s expert, who has been a civil en gineer for thirty years and who has been an expert before the State Board on different occasions, qualified as an expert for the city. He figured that the value of lot 22 was $10,000 an acre, while a fair price for lot 1, he said, would be $0,500 an acre, judging from the sales of adjacent land. The National Storage Company in 1887 paid $5,076 per acre for its property, which was inferior to the Central’s tract, he said, because of the ledge of rocks. Mr. Edwards objected to this testi mony unless Mr. Harrison could produce the original deeds. He said that he had done so in all cases where his witnesses had testified to the prices paid for differ ent tracts. Mr. Edwards also objected to testi mony of the witness bearing on values of Central property obtained from the railroad's own inventory. He said that an inventory wouldn't show real values, as a diamond ring inventoried at $5,000 might not be worth more than $100. The Commissioners agreed with him. Mr. Edwards expressed an opinion that prying into the private affairs of railroads might lead to bad results. They might, he .said, for purposes 6f their own, be given ^fictitious values. RECVORD REFUSED. Mr. Record proposed to submit a for mal statement of the condition of the railroad company, published in Porr’s Manual in 1881. This was not allowed and the Corporation Counsel thought it was very harsh. Neither was the report of Special Master Bedle when the road went out of bankruptcy admitted. Then Mr. Black and Major Lentz had a little argument and the former said that the Board should show the same fairness to the city as to the railroad. The Major said lie did not like the re mark, whereupon Mr. Black said he really didn't mean it that way. Mr. Harrison again went into land values, corporation and otherwise. He said that the Central’s property was worth $10,000 an acre, unimproved, and $10,000 improved. If made into a ter minal, he said, it would be equal to the Central’s present terminal, better than the Lehigh Valley’s, equal to the P. R. R.’s at Harsimus and far ahead of the Susquehanna’s. BOARD ADJOURNS. It was long after supper time when the lawyers finished with Mr. Harrison.' Mr. Record was hungry and asked if it was the Board’s intention to adjourn for supper or continue the hearing. Mr. Edwards said if compelled to go on he would do so. He felt, however, as if he was in neetl of some nourish ment. It was noticed that Mr. Edwards was too ill to continue the strain any longer, and the oBard adjourned the hearing until Thursday, October 16, at 12 o’clock. JUNCTION DEMOCRATS.

WIFE’S YEARS OF AGONY __ I Many Beatings, Many Arrests, Many Relentings—Hard Case Before Judge Blair. “Papa! Papa! I want to. go to my papa!” lisped a pretty little girl of about four years in the Court of Special Ses sions yesterday afternoon as she left her mother’s side at the witness stand and ran over to a sullen looking unkempt man who sat at the defendant’s table. “Get out. I don’t want to see you,” was the response of . the. father as he pushed away the outstretched hands of his beautiful child. The little one looked in surprise, and, with tears in her pretty eyes; she made her way back to her mother’s side, took her hand, and,, gazing- Wistfully at the parent who. had .repudiated her, walked with her mother outside the railed en closure of the court room. “You briife,'” was' all the wife and mother would say as she passed the place where her husband sat:. JUDGE FROWNS. Judge Blair looked over bis spectacles and an expression of disgust overspread his countenance as he gazed at the pris oner, and scarcely a person in the court room could- refrain from expressing con tempt. ... The man was James Wilmouth, of No. 535 Harrison avenue, Harrison. He was on trial on a charge of having brutally assaulted his wife' on August 29 last. Mrs. Wilmouth, a good looking-young woman, had testified that during her nine years of married , life her husband bad attacked her repeatedly. She had him arrested many times but always with drew the charge. She said she did not want to send him to jail but wanted his abuse stopped. . FOUND GU.IUTY. On the evening of August 29, when he returned from work. Mrs. Wilmouth said she was in Newark buying' groceries. When she came back he struck and kicked her . in the street in the presence of several neighbors.. _.$be said lie had never supported her and that she was ■ obliged to keep boarders to support her self and two children. Wilmouth acted as his own lawyer. He tried to deny the statement that he did not support his family and this made his wife angry. Several neighbor’s corroborated Mrs. Wilmouth’s story of the assault find Judge Blair promptly found the man guilty. D. OF L. *EUCHRE.
