Great Curiosity As to Who Are the Financial Magnates Behind Nevins, IS PENNSYLVANIA IN THE BEAL Stockholders g Declare They Are in the Dark And In vestigation Mast Precede Action. The new developments were reported today in the negotiatians of the syndicate to control the North Jersey trolley lines. The backers of Thomas A. Nevins, the mouthpiece of the syndicate, are still un known, notwithstanding the numerous ru mors. It has been reported in Wall street. New York, that the move is believed to be made in (lie interest of the Pennsyl vania Railroad, as a part of its scheme of general improvement and fortification against any encroehments which might be mde upon its present monopoly of Jersey City traffic. The purchase of the North Jersey Company is said to be desired, so that any attempt by another cempany to pro ject a trolley line from Philadelphia can be thwarted1. The ultimate control of all the lines in New Jersey, it is said, will be the pre liminary step to the establishment of a, new service between all the summer re sorts and this city, via a line of fast steamers, made necessary by the enor mous increase in the number of summer travelers to these paints. > At a conference of representatives of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, the United Gas Improvement Company of America, and the Prudential Insurance j’Nnpauy at Philadelphia, early this tveCw, it is said, a programme for last Thursday’s meeting was prepared, and it was carried out to the letter. The pro gramme was that the written offer of Mr. Nevins should be read to the direc tors, and that a committee of represen tatives of the six controlling interests be appointed to investigate the offer of Mr. Nevins, the terms of which were printed in “The News” and report at a future meeting the result of their investigations. “This committe has the matter under consideration,” said a stockholder this morning, “and nothing definite will be known until Mr. Nevins’ offer is thor oughly investigated. Mr. Nevins has not disclosed the names of the capitalists who are supporting him. No one can say whether the offer will be accepted until the committee, which is composed of able men, complete their investigation and re port to another general meeting uf the directors of all the companies. E. H. Gaddiis, John D. Crimmins and other directors said they were by no means sure that the companies would1 be leased to Mr. Nevins and his syndicate, and htat they were not positive as to what capitalists were behind him, though they had assurance that his $4,750,000 guaranty was almost subscribed. But after the committee investigated thor oughly Mr. Nevins’s proposition and the condition of all the trolley lines, the large interest in 'the companies might decide to put up money enough to improve the service on every line, add so, under new ■ - --T .- - -V- .. ’ ^ > “Better out than in”—that humor that you notice.

G. I. and the Pruden tial people want to gat the trolley lines off their hands, for they have no time to give to the management of the trolley companies. They will either accept the offer of Mr. Kevins, which I know is bona fide, or form a holding company that will eventually control all the trolley co'm panies in Kew Jersey and handle the finances, the various companies to retain itthcir organizations and be managed as local concerns for. the benefit of the com munity and the holders of the securities.” MR. BROWN BN EMERAll ISLE The second stereoptieoa lecture on the “Emerald Isle,” delivered Thursday night by the Rev. J. Alex. Brown, in the Wayne Street-Reformed Church, was' a decided success financially, and from a‘ literary and artistic tsaudpeint. Bcgiu • niug with “Ireland’s Eye,’® the lecturer carried his audience through Dublin and the North, including the wonderful Giant’s Causeway, the interest of the large attendance being held from the first. The views are thoroughly repre * seutative of the historical and scenic Ire land, while iris fund of characteristically Irish stories seemed as inexhaustible as Erin’s beauties. Hr. Brown lectures from a large personal acquaintance with his subject, and in his lectures takes hopeful ground for tire social and econ omic futnre of the country. The lectur er’s presentation of Ireland’s political is-' sues, while a jus presentment of a rather delicate subject, is so moderate and well balanced that no offence can be taken by any reasonable audience, composed of either of the advocates of the two great' contending parties in that country. The lecture was a fitting sequel to the former one on “From the Cove of Cork to Dub lin Bay.” THE PARK CHURCH BA2AAR A bazaar with two A’s will be held at the Park Reformed Church on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week. -It will be a brilliant affair of its kind. Eie ladies of the church will provide a number of articles to be sold at reason able prices. At six on the evening of Tuesday, March 17, there will be “a souvenir dinner”—whatever that may be —at a cost of thirty-five cents to each participant. On Wednesday, the 18th, there will be a twenty-five cent, dinner, both of these banquets lasting from six to eight o’clock. The Ladies Fund Society wiil have charge of the church table of articles do noted y the church people. -* BRADFORD CLUB NOTES. J. Huiess, who is training the men of the Bradford Club, said he expects T. Gmel of the Junior Club, R. Seanlan, G. Norton, J. Toucher, H. Whitten and F. McGovern to win .a prize at the indoor meet to be held in New York. Mr. Huiess also has charge of the baseball squad, and will have the men out on the diamond next week. The team will have a very strong battery this season. R. Seanlan, who pitched fdr'Meridan last year, will be in the box, while H. Whitten, of Baltimore, will be behind the' plate. SHE MADE* CHANGE. A Charleston Mother Bid so With Advantage to Herself and Children A mother living in Charleston, Mass., the happy possessor of fsur children, writes:—“Every fall and winter I have laid in a stock of cough remedies, croup mixtures and throat medicines for my children, for somehow or other they nev er seem to be free frem colds, coughs or sore throat. This fall I made a change in the usual programme. I had myself been cured of an obstinate catarrh, from which I had suffered foryelrs, by Stuart’s Catarrh Tablets, and as they were pleasant to take I determined to try them with my children^ Our family physician told me he knew them to be perfectly safe and nothing better could be used for catarrh, coughs or colds. So I gave them to the children and have continued to do so ever since, when ever there is the least sign of croup or sore throat and I tio" longer dread the ap proach of cold weather as I once did. Stuart's Catarrh Tablets not only cured me of chronic nasal and throat ca tarrh but they have saved me many an anxious . night with my little ones. The. children "like the taste of them and it is realiy wonderful how, quickly tl^ey will break up a croupy cold or an obstinate, deep-seated cough.” People who have used sprays, inhalers, salves or washes for catarrh and have found how useless they are will be agreeably surprised at the results follow ing the use of a pleasant, convenient, in ternal remedy in tablet form. Druggists everytthere admit : that Stuart’s Catarrh Tablet*’.which salb fordS® cents full sized package, is the safest, most effective and popular of .catarrh wpdiciaea.

O’KEEFE’S VALOR * Chief Murphy Reommends That a Patrolman Be Placed on the Roll of Honor. * FOR A DARING RESCUE FROM FIRE Policeman Harm’s Trial Goes Over on a Mysterious Hint—Other Gases. When the name ,of -Patrolman William '.O'Keeffe, of the Gregory street station, was called during the trials at last night’s meting of the,Police Board there was no response. Chief of Police Mur phy was absent at the moment, .but latdr ou a communication was read from the Chief recommending that Keefe's name ,be placed on the roll of'honor. Keefe iwas to have been tried1 on a charge of failure to send in a call from a signal box. The Chief, in his commualeation, told how at the fire that recently oc curred at No. 186 Mercer street, Keefe had aroused ail the tenants except Tkos. Galway. Him he found unconscious, and. he picked him up and through thick smoke, followed by Mrs. Galway, carried him u a ladder to the scuttle, smashed the glass of the scuttle and escaped1 with his burden over two roofs, still followed -by Mrs. Galway, and landed the un conscious man into the anus of Walter Brower through another scuttle. He then assitsed Mrs. Galway to a place of safe ty. He said nothing to anyone, but went home and he has since been ill. It is likely that the charge against him will be dismissed and that the Chief’s recommendation that his name be placed on the honor roll, be carried out. There were a number of other inter esting' trials. Bftrtley Coyle, mounted policeman of tile Third Precinct, was accused of strik ing thirteen-year-old William BffcETo^ No. 2 St. Paul’s avenue. The boy threat ened to get his father, who, he said, was a friend of President Mitchell, to report him, and he claims that Coyle said: “Mitchell is no better than anyone else;” that he caught him by the collar, led him to a signal box and pretended to send in a report about him, and then let him go. Coyle was fined ten days’ pay. Mounted Patrolman Harms, of the Fourth Precinct, was up on a charge of. improperly caring for his horse, which recently reached the Ocean avenue sta bles bedecked with foam and generally tired out. Harms said he was obliged to cover a certain distance in order to report on time and that he was,unable to hold the horse anyhow. Van ©river Coyle, in charge of the barn, testified that Harms didn’t pay attention to orders. Harms declared he was being pounded because would not hand up ST.54) a month for stablemans' extra work. He was pressed by Commissioner Tilden to confess that Patrolman Donnelly, a former .driver, had broadly intimated that it would be better far him to do so. The case was set down as teo serious a one to pass upon last night. The distance Harms said he njade in . fourteen minutes was made un der instructions, according to police reg ulations, in twenty-one minutes. Patrolman Harry Bouglass, of the Fifth Precinct, was fined ten days’ pay for being absent twelve .hours without leave. He pleaded sickness as a cause. Acting Patfolman Charles Dunne, of the Sixth Precinct, pfeaded guilty to the charge of failure to send in a patrol box call. He said lie was not sure whether he did so or not; that just as he was about to do so he was called hurriedly away to stop a fight in progress between a man and women. His case was made clear without even the testimony of his witnesses. President Mitchell said the B»ra was absolutely ’ afire Dunp tellffig-the --truth and-advised o liOStoeoito so the- sametwhen on Roflbdsjinm Frank McMahan, _ Fourth Precinct, was fined one liia' nay for being date seven.; minutes >in Re porting for duty on February 7. His said me breaking, of a trolley pole on the Oar in which* he was oirhis way to re port 'for duty detained him. Patrolman Phillip Steftman, of the Second Precinct, was fined two days’ pay for failing to send in a call on March 3rd. Acting Patrolman Halsey, Van Horn, was reprimanded for being found loiter ing in a furnfb®ej store. Others fined were Acting Patrolman Laugan, of the Fifst Precinct, five days’ psty for failure to'pSJll signal box; Patrol , ninn Thomas Collins, Of the -Fifth Pre cfpct, two days pay for failing to send in patrol call; Patrtvlbjfln' W&es, of Sixth Precinct, oiie day’s pay, for'nbtreporting. The charge against Patrolman Van Bnren, First Precinct, for failure to re port from signal box, wras dismissed, the box being out of order.

GENERALSHAKEUP Chief Conway Transfers Kern, Hague, and Dingier and More Changes Are Ex pected. Firs Chief Conway yesterday trans ferred Battalion Chief Kern from the latter's headquarters at No. 12 Engine House in Hudson City, to No. 4 Engine house, down town. Battalion Chief Hague'was transferred from No. 5 Truck to No. 14 Engine, and-Battalion Chief Dingier was transferred from Fire Head quarters to No. 5 Truck. The transfers are the outcome of a condition ef affairs showing a lack of dis cipline, especially in Hudson City, as revealed at Thursday • night’s trials of Michael Whalen and William J. Wood, the former of whom was dismissed from ■the Department on a charge.of unbecom ing conduct in assaulting Wood ; during the fire at Bavey’a Oakum Works on Sunday, March 1. The tBans$Srs are looked upon as the forerunner'of a gen eral shakeup in the Departmqjjt. Battalion Chief Hague’s transfer is no reflection upon him. He was in structed by Chief Conway to visit every fire house- in his district'in the Hudson City section daily and to report to the Chief. —■ ■ » WEATHER INDICATIONS.
