BARKERNOT DEAD # —— Man Who Shot Rev. Mr. Keller Is in Good Health in Prison. Some one spread the rumor about town today that Thomas G. Barker, now serving a sentence in Trenton State prison for attempting to kill Rev. John Keller of Arlington, had died yesterday. Warden Osborne’s attention was drawn to the story and this is what he said about it:— "Barker is in perfectly good health. In fact, he is more cheerful and in better health than he has ever been since his coming here. No, there is absolutely no truth in the report that he is dead or dying.’’ From time to time these rumors crop up about the prisoner’s condition. His friends are about to make another effort to have him pardoned. Mrs. Barker is still with friends in the West, and Rev. John Keller continues to be chaplain to Bishop Thomas Starkey and secretary of the Newark Protestant Episcopal Diocese. MORE LAID OFF. American Sugar Refining Co. Dismisses 1,500 Men Today. Fifteen hundred more men were laid off today at the works of the American Sugar Refining Company and they may be idle for a week or perhaps two weeks. No information' of any kind could be obtained from the officials at the Sugar House. The news came from the men themselves, who said that they had been paid off and that was all there was to be said. It was said yesterday that the sus pension of the men was due to an over stock of sugar. Whether this is true or not cannot he ascertained. Often repairs to machinery necessitate such a course and it may be so in this case. DIED VISITING HIS SISTER. Oscar Sturnme, of Brooklyn, Passed Away in Lafayette Yesterday. Oscar Sturnme, formerly of J. W. Mc Kenna Feed Company, of No. 50 Nassau street, Brooklyn, died yesterday at the residence of his sister, Mrs. F. H. Beu rith, No. 310 Commucipaw avenue.

The funeral services will be conducted by the Rev. Rabbau of the German Evangelical Lutheran Church, Lafayette. The interment will take place on Monday at Muddle Island, L. I. Funeral director George H. Bunnell has charge of the arrangements. MR. NOLAN’S(ATTAINMENTS Street and Water Commissioners Jns. S. Nolan and Anthony Hauek are very fond of pinochle. When they find them selves in a party of pinochle players they always become partners. Whether he learned the German language from his friend and colleague, Mr. Hauck, or by attending meetings of the Plattdeutsehe Verein of Hudson county, whose head quarters are located in this section, Com missioner Nolan has picked up a smat tering of German and during the games played with his partner, they converse in German. When their partners happen to be those who do not understand German, and especially if they are Irish, the op posite partners become irate. SERIOUS FALLON SIDEWALK.

Pur chases Ground for Hand some Building. The Hudson County Gas Company has purchased property on West Eighth street, Bayonne, for the purpose of erect ing a handsome new office building. The plot is directly opposite the West Eighth street station of the New Jersey Central Railroad and is close by the Mechanics’ Trust Company’s building and the Post Office. The new building will be 33x75 feet. It will be a two-story brick with a terra cotta front and w^ll be handsomely fur nished both inside and out. Contracts for the erection of the building were en tered into by the company yesterday with Contractor William Sewell. The company expects to move into its new building about May, 1 next.

Cover. _ ' TWO SAW THE ACCIDENT v •' Coroner Brackner Charges That Manufacturer of the Air Tank Was Really j # s at Fault. An inquest into the death of Vietor Mortier, a workman in the employ of the Marine Engine and Machine Com pany, who was decopitated by the ex plosion of a compressed air tank in the company’s works at Harrison on Janu ary 21, was libld by Coroner George J. Brackner at the JJtmrt House last night, ai^d resulted in’a verdict exonerating the firm employing Mortier from all re sponsibility for the accident. A number of witnesses testified that the tanks or cylinders were purchased from the Milwaukee Pressed Steel Tank Company under a guarantee that they would withstand hydraulic pressure of 1,200 pounds to the square inch. The company is making its tests before send ing the tanks out used compressed air uot exceeding 300 pounds to the square inch, which it was stated would be equiv alent to 000 pounds hydraulic or one-half the pressure which the tanks were guar anteed to stand. ONLY TWO EYE WITNESSES. There were only two eye witnesses to the fatal aeident. Both testified that Mortier had found a leak in one of the tanks and at the suggestion of a fellow workman named Collins, was about to let the air out, and was leaning over the tank with a wrench in iiis hand when the explosion took place, the cylinder taking the man’s head off and carrying it to the roof of the building. The evidence of those who investigated the accident immediately after it oc curred was to the effect that they be lieved that Mortier was by mistake try ing to charge a tank which had been al ready charged. This theory is seeming ly borne out by Muftior’* otatMneiWYPj Ti» assistant before the accident to thq effect that he had charged three of the four tanks, whereas, when examined it was found that only two had been filled with air besides the one that had ex ploded. MANUFACTURER 'RESPONSIBLE. Coroner Brackner conducted the in quest in a most expeditious and' business like manner, displaying a thorough knowledge of the duties of his position. His questions were (dear and to the point, bringing out answers that told all of the story of the awfuj occurrence which it was possible to learn. At the conclusion of the testimony the Coroner briefly reviewed the evidence in the case and said it clearly showed that if anyone was responsible it was the manufacturer of the tank, which had sold it under a guarantee to withstand a presssure which it was not capable of. The jury was but a few minutes agree ing ou its verdict. -« LADIES’KAFFEE KLATCH. The Ladies’ Aid of Linden Avenue* M. E. Church have arranged to hold a “kaf fee klateh” ou Monday evening.

APATHI OF MEMBERS THE* CAUSE Interest in Hall Assigned to a Brewery—Officials* Mana gement Criticized. Announcement has been made that the Greenville Turn Verein is about to lose its home on Danforth avenue, which was built six years ago at a eos-t of $13,000. The over prosperous organization is now in a very bad way financially, said to be due to factional differences existing for a number of years. For two years more or less apathy was noticed and very few of the members interest in the affairs of tile society. There is no danger of the organization dissolving at this time even though the finances are in bad shape. It is likely that smaller quarters will be secured nearby and the work continued. The present Turn Hall is a commodious structure with ample facilities for just such work. It is half a block long and is forty feet wide. There is a stage also. The Turners when the building was erect ed, paid out of the treasury about $1,000. The total cost was $13,000. The Bach man Brewing Company advanced about $0,000 necessary to complete the hall, and took a mortgage. ASSIGNED TO THE BREWERY. Up to the first of this year the turners managed to run the organization with success. But when the interest fell due on the mortgage on January 1, the tur ners could not pay it. The brewery has not foreclosed, but it was announced last night that the turners had signedtover all their interest to the company, and that it would be a matter of only a short- time when the turners will get new quarters. -Every matt in the Turn Verei^feels the blow keenly. It means that years of hard work have gone for nothing. ITS EXCELLENT RECORD. -The organization is twenty-nine years old and is one of the best kuown in the State. The loss of the building means also that the Turn Verein also loses about $10,000. This includes the original sum paid out to build, interest on the mortgages which amounted to'about $1, 800, and flaxes and water rents. A prominent member stated last even ing that the men who have been at the head of the Verein for the past few years could have managed the organization more successfully. OFFICIALS CRITICIZED. “The barroom has not been rented for many months,"’ said he, “simply because the officers practically forced two men out by atempting to raise the rent. The Verein got $50 a month for the saloon, and this meant that all the expenses of the organization could be paid out of that sum. When this was lost it was a severe blow to us and contributed largely to the loss of the building. We needed the mon ey, yet some of the officers insisted on raising the rent with the result that the men got out. “Our masquerade balls have been los ing enterprises and everyone seems to have lost interest in the doings of the as sociation.” The speaker also said that the loss of several prominent members by death and removal from that section was felt very much. The turners have n large number of trophies in the hall. There is one that was won at the World's Fair grounds and another at the Buffalo Exposition. At present the organization is paying uo rent until a linal settlement is reached. INVESTIGATING POOLROOMS Grand Jury Wants to Know the Backers of Hansen’s Place. The Grand Jury at yesterday after noon’s session took up the matter of the pool room raided by Prosecutor’s detec tives in Hauser’s saloon on Fourteenth stret, this city, with the object of reach ing the persons who really conducted the gambling place. ' Otto Hauler, who pleaded guilty” of permitting gambling in his place and was fined $500. and his brother, Gustav, Jr., were called as witnesses, and it is said, gave the names' of Adolph Auerbach aud George Havel of Xew York, as the per sons who conducted-the pool room. Tho Investigation will be at the next meetiug of the Grand Jury. FLYNN ONE OF PAULUS HOOK WAGES JO GO UP Union Journeymen Painters Will Receive Increase in April—Labor Notes. The wages of union journeymen paint ers commencing on the first Monday in April will be $3.28 a day, an increase of 28 cents over the wage rate now in ef fect. Paper hangers will receive $3.50 a day. 4 This was definitely decided at last night’s meeting of the District Council of Painters at Council Hall, No. 11 Ho boken avenue, when the vete cast by the alllied locals in referendum was officially canvassed. The vote was largely in favor of the increase and it is believed that the new rate will be accepted by employers generally without opposition. They will be notified at once. The Saturday half holiday was also agreed on, the men to be paid only for the time they work. It was also decided to hereafter observe ail legal holidays. In addition the Council arranged a piece work schedule, which will become opera tive when the new rate goes into effect. Fraternal delegates from Essex coun ty and New York were present at the meeting. The District Council of Carpenters met last night at Council Hall, Jersey City Heights, and transacted routine business. The attendance was large. Secretary William E.
