COURT RESERVES DECISION Mr Edwards Claims It Will Work Injury—Gao. L. Rec ord Defends the Tax. I (Special to “The Jersey City News.”) TRENTON, Nov. 21, 1902.—Late this afternoon Justices Garrison and Garret son, sitting as a branch of the Supreme Court, heard Mr. William D. Edwards's application in behalf of the City of Ho boken for a writ of certiorari to review the action of Mayor Fagan’s tax board in pushing up the valuation of the prop erty of corporations in Jersey City. Hoboken claims that the valuation is unjust, and if it is allowed to stand Jer sey City will get more than her just share of the corporation tax and Hobo ken will get less than she is entitled to. Mr. Edwards argued at some length, and was followed by Corporation Counsel George L. Record, who claimed that the Voorhees act under which the tax is made declared that.no change in the ap portionment of the franchise tax should be made in case the valuation of any property is reduced after the return is filed. The Court reserved decision. MERCHANTS KICK; I i They Object to Jackiog Up of Their Property in Dry Goods District. » Alueh unfavorable comment has been heard all over the city on account of the action of Alayor Fagan's Tax Board in giving a representative of the G. O. P. organ access to the tax books for the purpose of publishing the assessments levied against the property of certain taxpayers before the books have been confirmed by the Finance Board. The city officials had always been led to be lieve until this year that the figures were' not public property until after Ithe books had been officially confirmed. Only those assessments have been pub lished which would giev the impression that the valuations had been boosted up on the properties of corporations and big business houses and decreased on the properties of the small taxpayer. Many of the taxpayers whose assess ments have been published, have been kicking vigorously because they did not want it known what values were placed dn their properties. Strange to relate some of these men had been unable to quietly find out at the Tax Board cffioe what their assessments were, information having been refused on that point. The figures as published reveal the fact that somebody had some pretty good friends in the Board. The jacking up of the assessments in the dry goods dis trict has not pleased the merchants. Among those who have had their valu ations raised are well known Democrats. John Alullins is one of the men who has felt the results of the inflated figures. It is said that the merchants will join together in an effort to secure a reduc tion. They may not bother about ap pealing to the local Board of Appeals, which will stand by the Fagan Tax Board, but will go directly to the State Board of Taxation. The clerks in the tax office are workj ing day and night in making up the tax books so they will be ready for confirma tion by the Board of Finance on Novem ber 28. _A_ TUMULTY-BAXTER. Pretty Wedding at St. Bridget’s Church Last Night. A/k'ery petty wedding took place last evening at St. Bridget’s It. C. Church, Montgomery and Brunswick streets, when Mr. Phillip A. Tumulty nnd Miss Mary Baxter, two well known members of St. Bridget’s Church, were married by the Rev. John Ryan, rector of the church. Counsellor Joseph P. Tumulty, a brother of the groom, was best man, nnd Miss Kathryn Baxter, a sister of the bride, was bridesmaid. A reception followed at the home of the bride on Monmouth street. The couple left today for Washington, D. C., where they will spend their honeymoon. -« BAYONNE LIQUOR GASES. At Last the Sixteen Accused Men Will Be Examined.

Sunday, August 31. is the only date Of alleged violation pf law. FAGAN'S FOLLY Allan L. McDermott’s Brief on the Single Headed , Commission Act. Counselor Allan L. McDermott has subjoined" his 'brief in the certiorari of Mayor Fangan’s single-headed Street and Water Commissioner Act, which met such a disastrous fate at the recent elec tion. In discussing the act, Mr. McDermott first attacks the title of the act as mis leading and defective in that it gives no expression of the most radical change to be found in the statues of New Jersey relating to municipal government. “The appointment.’’ continues Mr. Mc Dermott, “of an officer to be knqwn as Street and Water Commissioner is mere ly an incident to the conferring of abso lute veto power upon the Mayor. Does the title of the act indicate what could befall a city of the first class should it have a dishonest, ignorant or otherwise incompetent Mayor?” ACT IS SPECIAL. Touching the unconstitutionality of the act, the brief says it is special. The act is unconstitutional in the fact that, while its title indicates an intention to legislate for all cities of the first class, sections two and three limit its. effect to those cities that, on April 11, 1902, had a Board of Street and Water Commis sioners. Corporation Counsel Geo. L. Record has eleven days in which to file his brief for the city. _A_ KING MARTIN COMMITTED The Man With Millions Due in Salary Held for Examina tions. “I am the man who does all of the j contracting for the government in the ! entire United States. I also am the Mayor of this city. I am the king.” Thus spoke Martin O’Connell, of No. 134 Woodward street, in the First Crim inal Court this morning. O’Connell was charged by his wife, Maria, with being a dangerous lunatic. Judge Hoos looked surprised and in quired of O’Connell how lie would gain the Mayor’s chaij;. “I have left the matter in the hands of my lawyers and they will bring the matter before the courts.” After asking a fen’ more questions and receiving rambling answers. Judge Hoos committed O’Connell for ten days to await examination by the County Physi cian. O’Connell has been a frequent visitor at the City Hall where he proclaims him self king on every occasion. He is al ways told that the jewels in his crown are being fixed and goes away satisfied. A few days ago he called at City Clerk O'Donnell’s office and demanded several millions of dollars which he claimed for back salary. -* W. W. HASTINGS DEAD. General Manager of Standard Watch Company Suc cumbs to Operation. Walter W.

COM NES IN TWO BOARDS % : v . ■ “Democrats” to Aid Repub lican Machine to Control Police and Fire De * partments. HUNGRY GANG’S GAME b —— Fagan Will Appoint Friends Who Will Promise to Work With Angel and Mitchell.. Whpn Mayor Fagan appoints Commis sioners to succeed Dr. John D. McGill Democrat, in the Police Board, and James Hennessey, Democrat, in the Fire Board, he will make sure that they are Democrats who will do'the bidding of the administration. An effort is being made by the adminis tration with the approval of the G. O. P. bosses, to convert the Fire and Police Boards into partisan adjuncts to the Re publican machine. The Republicans wapt to get posses sion of'the departments and work them for all there is in it. The Police Board is naturally a prize which they most desire to control in con sequence of the great power which can be influenced by the police, under the proper direction, around election time. Some time ago Commissioner Johp Mitchell, of the Police Board, served no tice on his Republican colleague, Presi dent Thomas W. Tilden, that the time would come when changes in the make up of the Board would result in Tilden finding himself in the minority. He re ferred to the appointment of a successor to Dr. McGill, with whom Tilden had voted to make Superintendent of Police Telegraph William Foley a sergeant: Mitchell, who admits that he is an out and-out Republican partisan, opposed Foley's appointment as sergeant simply on the grounds that Foley is a Democrat. MITCHELL DISTURBED. •Mitchell has been considerably disturb ed because he has been unable to form a “working combination” with Tilden, -He thinks, it is said, that the department should be utilized for the sole benefit of the Republican machine. The bosses back him up in this contention. Mitchell doesn't feel that he would ever be able to work in harmony with Tilden in running ‘the department on a partisan basis, and is looking to' Dr. Mc Gill's successor to help him out. COLONEL SAM'S PART. It is said that Colonel Samuel D. Dick inson. who has made two or three calls on Mayor Fagan of late, has impressed upon His Honor the necessity of nam ing men who will work in combination with the partisan members of the two Boards. Under the law the Boards are entitled to minority- representation and the terms iff Democrats only expire on January 1. That will make it incumbent upon the Mayor to fill their places with so-called Democrats. Men who have gone to Mayor Fagan to speak in favor of the appointment of Democratic friends who would like to become officials of a Fagan Board, have been asked to furnish guar antees that their candidates would stick by Mitchell in the 'Police Board and Angel in the Fire Board. TO HELP ANGEL. Angel hasn’t been the real thing dur ing the past eleven months on account of Commissioner Aiblett’s refusal to effect a political alliance with him. Niblett is to be made to thoroughly understand that be will be a very small minority next year. To accomplish this a Fagan Democrat will be appointed who will turn a cold shoulder to Niblett and join hands with Angel, or another Republican partisan in the ^vent that Angel’s health is such that he will be obliged to retire from the t>oard. Already the heads of the two depart ments are quaking with fear over the outlook. They foresee trouble when the Dickinson - Republican - Fagan - Demo crat combinations get control of the de partments. “Uncle John” McNulty is very anxious to be a police commissioner and rumor says that the Mayor would not like to disappoint his relative who so nobly managed his Honor's campaign. Ex-Freeholder Tremble is one of the leading candidates for Commissioner Hennessey’s, place in the Fire Board. If Uncle John can’t be a police commis sioner he would" consent to become a fire commissioner. _!_ NOONAN TO DEFEND HENDRICKS Lawyer Joseph II. Noonan has been retained ,by the friends of Dr. C. C.

BOARD OF TRADE WILL JOIN 4 More Parties to the Suit to Test the Constitution • alty of the County Park Act, DATE SET FOR ARGUMENT The Court Orders Judge Blair to Plead or Demur Within Five Days After Ser vice of the Writ. After the branch of the Supreme Court had granted yesterday the writ of mandamus directing Judge/John A. Blair to appoint four County Park Commis sioners, Lawyer Frank H. Hall, who made the motion, at once went before the main cou rtand had the cause sef for argument on brief on December 3. * When the Court allowed the writ it made air order on Judge Blair command ing him to plead, demur or answer with? in five days of the service of the writ} that will be November 23. It is under; stood Judge Blair will demur on thi ground that the act is unconstitutional delegating* to him powers belonging to another authority. BOARD OF TRADE TO JOIN. ‘ Mr. Hall last night wrote to Presi dent David Daly of the Board of Trad<i asking that body to join in the proceed ings to test the act and suggesting tha^ Messrs. Joseph A. Dear and Henry vj Condict be made parties with Jacob Diehl, who brought the suit. It is too early for a reply, but in' all likelihood these names will be joined in the suit; The Board of Trade has taken a great deal of interest in the matter of county parks and will aid with its influence and check book to have the scheme go through. Among lawyers there has been a dis position to criticize Judge Blair for not appointing the commissioners, on the ground that he is not the arbiter of the constitutionality of any act. The powers in the act, it was said, were specially delegated to the judiciary for a specific purpose and the Court ought not to dodge the duty clearly imposed by the act; it was drawn, it was further point -ed out, on the lines of Newark’s part act and was even a better bill than that measure. On the other hand, Judge Blair, it is claimed, was clearly within his right to refuse to carry out an act which he be lieved was invalid, because it gave him a duty which by the constitution belongs to another. _A_ FIRED AT DEAD POSSUM. Mr. Heck Plays a Joke on His Friend, Mr. Eakin. ,_ Gray Eakin, of Broadway and Fourth street, Union Hill; Charles Hech, of Liberty street, that town, and Lea Ris ley, of Dover place, High wood Park, re turned yesterday from a week’s hunting at Stockholm, N. Y. They bagged lots of game and enjoyed some rare sport. Mrs. Eakin, who is a clever shot, did her share and killed as much game as the other members of the party. The hunters brought heme sixty-two rabbits, ten gray squirrels, a dozen par tridges, as many quail and a ’possum. The ’possum was killed by Hech, who was the practical joker of the party. He fastened the carcase securely to the lhnb of a tall tree, making it look as life like as possible. The next day he took Eakin around that way. Heck did not see the ’possum, but Eakin did. Taking steady aim at the animal he blazed away. Of course it did not drop. Neither did Eakin, and he let fly his second bar rel. The animal did not turn a hair. Heck pretended that he was anxious to get a shot at the animal but Eakin re fused to permit him. He said he would bring down that animal* whatever it was, even if he had to cut down the tree. He fired a dozen shots at the ’possum and filled it as full of holes as a sieve but it did not tumble, then Eakin did, and awoke to the fact that someone was having a little fun at his expense. When he turned he saw on Heck’s countenance a yard wide grin. He made a dive for Heck, who beat a hasty retreat and did not venture near Eakin the balance tf the ddy. Eakin begged him to keep the matter secret, but Heck considered the joke tpo good to keep. ..^- ‘ -• GUESTS AT THE WASHINGTON Among the guests registered at the Hotel Washington are:—Arthur R.

Five Men Indicted Are Be fore Judge Blair on Charges of Homi cide, Five alleged murderers were arraigned before Judge Blair in the Court of Oyer and Terminer this morning, and the prospects now are that all the homicide cases delayed to await the decision of the Court of Errors on the appeal in the Taylor case, will be disposed of during the coming December term of court. Gustav and William Kdntz and Paul Altenberger, who have been indicted for killing Marshall Engelbrecht in North Bergen about a year ago, were in court for the formal application of Prosecutor Erwin for a struck jury to try the case against them. They were represented by Lawyers Simpson and Lillis. Judge Blnir fixed Friday next for striging the jury. William Reilly, who killed Martin Ger aghty in lower Jersey City, pleaded not guilty. No date for the trial was fixed. Pasqual Antonaccio, who shot and kill ed Guiseppi Episcopo in Jersey City, also pleaded not guilty. The trial of Domince Olivera, who stabbed Francisca Brogna to death in a quarrel over a three- cent cigarholder at their home in West Hoboken, was fixed for Monday next. Olivera will be repre sented by Lawyers Joseph M. Noonan and Myron C. Ernst. DINNERS FoTtHE POOR. Mr. Bernstein of Furst Com pany Will Distribute Turkeys Thanksgiv ing Eve. In keeping with a custom he inaugur ated nine years ago when he started in business, Mr. Joseph E. Bernstein, president and treasurer of the Furst Company of this city, will distribute poultry Thanksgiving eve, Wednesday, November 26, among the poor of Hud son County. About 3,500 pounds will be given away. This is 3,000 pounds more than was received by the poor nine years ago. The custom is as follows:— The poor and ngedy are notified and their applications are transferred. Then they are immediately notified by Mr. J, E. Bernstein to call Wednesday evening, between 7.30 and 10, when 'the poultry is distributed. For those who cannot come on account of sickness, the poultry will be delivered by special messenger. Hospitals will be remembered. Applica tions are kept strictly confidential. For years Mr. Bernstein has made it a rule to give away to the poor a certain percentage of his net gains. It is well known that last year he transferred a costly ambulance, which cost $1,000, to one of the Catholic Hospitals, through Vicar General Shepard, of .St. Michael’s Church, a hospital in which the priest is particularly interested. About a month ago, when the coal strike was at its height, Mr. Bernstein started a coal fund and placed $100 in the hands of Mayor Fagan for distribution among the poor of Jersey City. It is quite evident that Mr. J. E. Bern stein is doing some good while he is alive, rather than to wait until after death, -A BAYONNE’S DISPUTED VOTES Justice Collins Forced at Last to Pass on the Question ed Ballots. Although Chairman Augustus A. Rich and Michael J. Doyle, the Democratic members of the County Election Board, made every possible ' effort this morning to lessen the burden of Justice Collins by again going over the six or seven hundred disputed ballots in the Bayonne election recount, referred to the Court, the Re publican members, Thomas M. Coughlin and Joseph Guisto, refused to accede to any proposition other than that the Court should consider all of the trivial ir regularities of the disputed ballots point ed, out by counsel on either side during the recount. As a result Justice Collins will now have to go over each of the “disputed” ballots separately and give Iris decision, although it is known by reason of pre vious rulings in similnr cases, that the great majority of the 'ballots in dispute will be ordered counted by the court. The disputed ballots, with the state ment of the County Election Board as to the result of the recount, will be pre sented to Justice Collins tomorrow morn ing. when he will fix a day for (he of ficial examination. It'is conceded now that the recount has. resulted in the election of the en tire Democratic city ticket by pluralities ranging from 100 to 200, and that the Court’s decision in the disputed ballots will not alter these figures. As to the cry of fraud raised by the defeated Republican-Fusion candidates. Lawyer Alex. Maxwell, a Republican representing the Fusionists. said:—“I see absolutely no grounds for the charge that any of the boxes were tampered with af ter election.” _*_ K. OF C. JJEGTURE.

HEROIC WORK SAVES HIM Sensational Scene in Hen rick’s Place—Words With a Woman—Father Bertrand’s Pro test. Michael Lynch attempted 6uicide late yesterday afternoon in West Hoboken. His father and family supposed him to be single, and hi's friends about the places of entertainment thought him a young married man. It is due to the prompt work of the po lice, Father Bertrand and the doctor, who promptly responded to the call, and his friends, who worked over him for hours, that he is alive today. Michael Lynch is twenty-three years old, and a son of James Lynch, a well known and respected resident of North ■Bergen. The family lives at the foot of Hunter street. Michael Lynch was al ways reserved, and his father and broth ers knew little of his movements. ANNOUNCES MARRIAGE. Seven weeks ago he went to the sa loon and lodging house conducted by Ru dolf Heinrich, at No. 520 Shippen street, West Hoboken, announced that he had been married and engaged apartments for himself and bride. He was given a front room on the second floor, and was apparently very happy. The woman he brought to the lodging house as his bride was Miss May Sanders, of Union Hill, an attractive blonde about twenty-four years old. At half-past five yesterday morning boarders in Heinrich’s house were aroused by an animated talk between the couple. She was sobbing when he left the hotel at six o’clock, and soon follow ed him. £ Shortly after four o’clock in the after noon Lynch entered Heinrich’s place. He appeared to he in an unusually pleasant frame of mind. He invited every one he was acquainted with to have a drink. Heinrich was behind the bar. Lynch ex cused himself and stepped in the hallway. He returned almost immediately and took a seat at a side table. Proprietor Heinrich noticed he held a small bottle in his hand, and called Frederick Miller of No. 521 Clinton avenue, aside and told him, he believed Lynch had taken poison. TAKES POISON. “Nonsense,” said Miller, but when he returned to the table he noticed that Lynch was pale and that the upils of his eyes were quivering. Glancing at his right hand he saw it contained a vial, which he Immediately threw away. Lifting the glass of beer to his lips, Lynch said, “Here goes, boys.” Before he could take a sip of the beer, the glass dropped from his right hand, a cigarette from his left, and he settled back limp in his chair. There was great excitement in the sa loon. Miller had presence of mind enough to leave the place and summon Patrolman Ruehl. The prompt work of the officer is highly commended. He ran to Imperial Hall, the nearest telephone, and notified the station to send a doctor. After returning and clearing the sidewalk of the crowd Ruehl called messengers and sent word to Lynch’s family. Twelve minutes after Lynch had taken what he suppose d was a fatal dose of laudanum, Dr. H. P. Lewis, of Palisade avenue and Shippen streets, West Hobo ken, was at his sid.e, called by Captain Moher. To his heroic treatment Lynch owes his life. When the doctor reached the saloon he found Lynch limp in a chair sur rounded by men. Policeman Ruehl soon cleared the room and Dr. Lewis called for volunteers to keep Lynch from fall ing in a stupor that would have proved fatal. Friends of Lynch, to the number of eight, respouded and kept his legs and arms in constant motion. After admin istering an injection of stricnine to re store heart action, the doctor used a stomach pump. LIFE SAVED. Four times Lynch collapsed and was given up for dead by his friends. Dr. Lewis, however, never relaxed “puinp ing” Lynch’s chest to maintain respira tion. When Lynch’sThnbs became rigid for the fourth time, one of his friends ran coatless and hatless to St. Michael’s Monastery for a priest. Father Bertrand responded. The entrance of Father Bertrand was the signal for silence. After glancing at the unconscious man, the Father, raising ATTENTION. FIRE DEPARTMENT CALLED BY TELEPHONE.

Father Bertrand found Lynch on an ordinary barroom table, placed on a floor covered with sawdust, and gave direc tions to carry him to a private room. As they started to carry Lynch to a dining room across the hall to place him on a sofa, Mrs. Heinrich stepped in the doorway and said:— “You can’-t bring him in here. I won’t have my children scared.” FEARS FOR CHILDREN. Dr. Lewis and ather Bertrand pro tested. Raising his hand and facing the womanF, the priest said:—“Do you mean to say that a dying man is not to be placed in a private room?- He is a guest of your house and unless you al low him to be placed in another room I will call upon the police to close this place.” The friends of Lynch became highly indignant. Then the ambulance arrived and at the same time Miss Sanders reached the corner and was told by neighbors of the attempt of Lynch to end his life. v After Lynch had been taken to the hospital Miss Sanders -became hysterical, and declined to give any information. At the North Hudson Hospital it was reported this morning that Lynch had re gained consciousness and would recover. Patrons and guests of Heinrich’s es tablishment say that Lynch was quiet and not a dinking man. He is a button maker. On Monday, after being out of work for several days, he secured em ployment with George 'Handler, No. 313 Lewis street. Miss Sanders is said to be employed in a silk mill. MAY BE CRAZY. Lynch’s father and two brothers arriv ed within a half hour of the attempted suicide. The elder Lynch was prostrat ed by this second attempt of his son to end his life, and when Dr. Lewis told him he thought he could pull him through he left for his home. James Lynch said his brother was a veteran of the Spanish-American war. He served in the Eighth Volunteers. His father thinks his experiences during the campaign h^ve unsettled his mind. It was reported that Lynch had at tempted to poison himself in the fac tory yesterday afternoon before leaving his work. This report could not be veri fied by his brother. v Lynch attempted to commit suicide in Hoboken about four years ago. He shot himself in the head, but the bullet made only a scalp wound. -4 HONEST GIRL GETS MONEY. School Miss Returns Purse Before She Hears of Reward. A Bayonne school girl yesterday after noon found a ladies' purse containing a quantity of valuable jewelry, which she promptly restored to the owner. Mrs. Aldeu W. Vanatta of West Sixth street.
