Church That 111 Health Forces Him Out. TALK OF FINANCIAL TROUBLE It Is Said Ha Had to Draw on HU Private Pafcse to Meet Church Obligations. The announcement that the resigna tion of the Rev. Dr. Daniel F. Warren, of St. Mary's P. B. Church, Summit and Pavonia avenues, did not come in the nature of a surprise to the parishioners who knew that their venerable rector had been contemplating ’ the step for some time. Nevertheless general regret was ex pressed. In some quarters it was ru mored 111 heal&h was not the only cause that led Dr. ,Warren to resign, but that he felt that the congregation- was depend ing too much upon him in financial mat ters. This the beloved priest would not admit when seen by a '“News’’ reporter at the rectory. Out of a salary of $1,200 a year he was supposed to receive, he has spent much in church and charitable work, in fact, within a year he is known to have donated over $T00 to meet an obligation of the church. HEALTH IS POOR. "All I can say is that my health is so poor I do not think tbatl can continue to dv justice to the work of the parish,” Dr. Warren said. “I feel that a younger man can safely take up the work where I left it off. The relations between the people of the parish and myself are most cordial and it is with reluctance that I feel obliged to sever them, but I think it is for tl(e beat that 1 sjtoqld do so. I have not taken this sit * hastily but after consultation with members of my family who agree with me that it is. b»st that I should resign. I might have done this after we sold the old church property in Hobokeai avenue to the rail road, but I hesitated-to >do it then, be cause I feared the ehnreh might pass out of existence.” O’HARE WAS CONVICTED Jury Fistl That He DU Keep t Disorderly Home.

GASES NOT READY FOR TRIAL Insisted That Ha Mu3t Be Kept Busy—Penalty for Unreadiness. Justice Francis J. Swayze this morn ing served notice mildly, but ill a no uncertain manner that he would no longer tolerate the dilatory practice of lawyers having cases oh call for the day who reported not ready for trial. Six causes were listed for trial on Monday, but none were ready when called. In order to make sure that he w<yikl have something to attend to today he ordered nice cases placed on the list in the expectation that at least one would be ready. He was again doomed to disappointment, however, for when the list was called' not a single one was in readiness. COURT WAS ANNOYED. The Justice was plainly annoyed when he stated that he was at all times willing to oblige counsel by substituting cases but ho insisted that he must be kept busy. It was an injustice to the state and county, lie said, for him to conic here and find there was nothing tor him to do. Hereafter ho said, he must insist that lawyers come prepared to try their causes or he would hot give them a sec ond chance, hut order the ease to be placed at the bottom of the list where it would not be reached until every other cause had at least one chance. Justice Swayze then directed that fif teen cases in the calendar for tomorrow so there would scarcely be at least one ready for trial.

WHY MR. SPEER WAS NAMED ; Public Demand Too Great for Goveraflr Murphy . to Refuse. _ JUDGE NEVIUS’S SUCCESSOR i _;_ No Chance for Heisley a3 He Comes From Monmouth —Other Appoint ments. (Special to “The Jersey City News.”) TRENTON, Jan. 28, 1903.—Governor Murphy in sending the name t,f William H. Speer to the Senate as Prosecutor to succeed James S. Erwin explained the appointment in the following state ment:—• "There was at no time any objection to or question of the personal character or abSily of Mr. Speer. The Only question in this ease was one of temperament. There was a fear in my mind that his manner and characteristics were not ex actly such as should be found in the- man who represents the idea of justice to the defendant brought for the first time be fore the bar. But. when such a mass of Indorsement is presented as has been vol unteered in his case, I consider it is the duty of any Governor to give it weighty consideration, and unless there are more weighty reasons against au appointment demanded by so many citizens, it seems to me that it is the duty of-the Governor to grant the popular demand. U1H EK APPOINTMENTS. In addition to the appointments of Mr. Speer and Frederick Frambaeh and Charles W. Parker as District Court judges the following were sent to the Senate. For Judge in the Court of Errors and Appeals—Elmer E. Green, of Mercer. For Judge in Court of Errors and Ap peals—John W. Bogerr, Bergen, reap pointed. For Prosecutor of the Pieas in Mer cer—William J. Crossley. reappointed. For Trustees State Home for Girls— John D. Rue, Alfred D. Carnagy and Mrs. Lydia G.

The result of the inter view was not encouraging for Heisley’s chances, the Governor informing them that, vhile there some things which might make Judge Nevius’s reappoint ment inadvisable he did not propose to embarrass a man of his character and re cord by naming another Monmouth man to the position. MONEY MYSTERY. Man Who Said He Had Heen Kod bed Hid Over Ten Hundred Dalla s Pedestrians iu the neighborhood of Newark avenue and Grove street were surprised last night to se two men issue from a corner Saloon apparently the best of friepds and then one suddenly grab the other and call loudly for the police. Pa trolmen Fox of the Second precinct an swered the call and found .James H. Crcightop in the grasp of William Za briskie, of No. 54 Gautier avenue. Za briskie claimed that Creighton had stolen $300 from him and requested that he be arrested. Fox took both men to the sta tion house where an investigation was started. Zabriskie was very positive of the fact that he had been robbed and claimed that he had no money at all left. Creighton,' who lives at No. 500 West Forty-second street, New York, was searched and found to have only seventy five cents. Zabriskie was Nnext taken in hand and in his inside vest pocket a roll of bills containing $U10 and seventy-nine cents in change was found. As soon as this was brought to light the police thought the mystery had been solved, but Zabriskie iusisted that he had another rdll besides. Both were locked up for the night and appeared iu the First Criminal Court this morning. After a night in a cell Zabriskie still stuck to his story of having the other money, but refused to swear under oath that Creighton was the man who had stolen it from him. There was no third party present at any time to which Creighton could have passed the money. Judge Hoos, refused to entertain any com, plaint aaaiust Creighton for lack of evi dence. Police Captain Kelly, who was kept out of bed for fully three hours last night endeavoring to unravel the mystery was much put out with Zabriskie and lodged a charge of disorderly conduct against him for a raising a disturbance ffl) llic street. Judge Hoos took the com plaint and held Zabriskie on that charge. Cre'ghton was much nuuoyel at the matter and his counsel, James Iiouelan, expressed his intention of bringing suit ; against Zabriskie for false imprisonment. [ Zabriskie is employed by the Dodd & I Childs Express Co., and is said to own some property in this city. -♦ Telephone service now cheap enough for anyone.
