The service Thursday afternoon will be in charge of the Woman’s Home Missionary Society, and in the evening of the same day the anniversaries of the Prohibition and Church Extension socie ties will take place. The latter will be held in St. Paul’s Church, Broad and' Marshall streets. On Friday there will be a business session, lasting until 11.30 o’clock in the morning. At this hour the lay electoral conference, composed of laymen from the different churches, will be received.

The annual meeting of the directors and stockholders of the American Ice Company, known as the Ice Trust, is being held in the company’s offices this afternoon. The two rooms occupied by the company could by no means com fortably accommodate the crowd of stockholders, who appeared to have other reasons for grumbling even before the unsatisfactory report of the treas urer was read. This report showed a deficiency. A wrangle ensued as to whether the report should be accepted and placed upon the minutes. One of the stockholders moved for a detailed re port of the treasurer of “this gigantic and badly managed concern.” The re port was finally ordered placed upon the minutes and a discussion of the treas urer’s report in detail was laid over to come up under the head of miscellane ous business. The two small rooms of the company were densely packed with stockholders, two-thirds of whom were standing. Those in the rear room could hear but little of what was going on in the front room and some of them demanded that the meeting adjourn to larger^uarters. Tehe chairman said that unfortunately there were no larger quarters available in the building and that the law com pelled such meetings to be held in the company’s rooms. LIGHT WAR AT A STANDSTILL There were no new developments to day in the fight betwetn the Public Ser vice Corporation and the American Street Lighting Company. The latter concern is going ahead equipping the city gas lamp posts with its new burn ers and the Public Service Corporation, which announced its refusal to sell gas to its successful opponent for the gas an doil street lighting contracts, is re stranied from cutting off the supply of gas ey the Public Service Corporation through the injunction obtained by the Baltimore concern from the United States Branch Court in Wilmington, Delaware, last week. The light Is causing just a little con cern among the city officials. The con tracts for both gas and oil lighting were awarded the latter part of last year. The Public Service Corporation’s con tracts have expired but it has continued to supply gas for the lamps up to the present time and the authorities will see that it is paid in full. The city owns nearly all the gas lamp posts now standing, bu t the New York and ’New Jersey Globe Gas Light Company owns most of the oil lamps. THREE PERSONS MISSING.

WANT TO MAKE A BELT LINE New Project Merely a Con tinuance of That Promised by the North Jersey Railway. A number of property owners on the west side of Greenville are holding a meeting this afternoon at Armbruster’s Greenville Schuetzen Park to discuss matters in connection with the efforts to secure an extension of the West Side avenue trolley line to that section. This extension was promised some time ago by the North Jersey Street Railway Company before it was absorb ed by the Public Service Corporation. In view of the promise made by the North Jersey Street Railway Company and as an aid to the project the property owners interested secured the opening of two new streets—Fowler and Romar ave nues—in order to provide a route for the proposed extension. It was proposed to extend the West Side avenue line to Dan forth avenue, through the latter thoroughfare to Fowler avenue, and along that avenue to Greenville avenue, where the line would enter Romar ave nue and continue to Sea View avenue, thence to Ocean avenue to connect with the present Bayonne line, thus forming a belt line. The failure of the North Jersey Street Railway Company to take the necessary steps for extending the line discouraged all property owners and residents inter ested in the project, but with the leas ing of the lines by the Puhlic Service Corporation and with Colonel Edward Hine as assistant to President McCar ter, new hope sprang up, and the com mittee in charge, whose work has come to a standstill, began to renew their ef forts. A petition was circulated in the interest of the delayed project. The petition received over a thousand signa tures and was sent to Mayor Fagan. The North Jersey Street Railway Company did make some effort to ex tend the line in the section mentioned, but encountered an obstacle at Stevens avenue, wher eDavid W. Oliphant re fused tc grant permission for the con struction of tracks in front of his prop erty unless the street was widened. This was impracticable at the time. A Committee was anoointed at this afternoon’s meeting to wait upon Colonel Hine and make a formal request for the extension of the line at the earliest pos sible opportunity. ■ i THROWN OUT OF COURT. Samuel Freidman, saloonkeeper, of No. 54 York street, was arrested last night on a charge of assault and battery on John Hanlon, of No. Ill Thirteenth street, New York. Hanlon first accus ed Freidman of robbing him of $20, but the police found the $20 hidden in Han lon’s pockets. Then Hanlon made the charge of assault and battery. The case was thrown out of the First Criminal Court. --- GAMMA SIGMA’S MEETING The Gamma Signia met this afternoon with the Rev. William H. Boococli, No. 763 Avenue C., Bayonne. Rev. Dr. C. S.
