XVII—NO. 6131._ JERSEY CITY. THURSDAY JULY 19. 1906. ~ PRICE ONE CE.\t~~ CLEMENTS’ HAD DANDY OUTING Enjoyed a Great Day At Witzel’s Grove and Re ceived Enthusiastic Recep tion On Return Home CROWDS WITNESSED PARADE GAMES OF ALL KINDS ENJOYED AT THE GROVE, AND THE SAIL A DELIGHTFUL ONE GOING AND COMING—AMUSING INCI DENTS. The outing of the Alex J. Cdements’ Association at Witael’s Point View Grove yesterday was not only an enjoy able but a very successful event. There were nearly 500 participante. The whole day was marked with interesting inci dents, but had not been placed upon the programme by the energetic and wise committee of arrangements. The stand ard bearer’s Demoeratis cobarts of the First Ward were largely represented, and the Second and Third Wards sent large delegations . In addition to these, almost every ward in the city and rnany counly municipalities were represented. oFrmer Freeholder James Kelly, as well known in the First Ward as in the Hill wards marshalled the morning and night parades. Tlie Association met with an enthu siatic reception on its retudn. The streets were lined with spectators, including wo men and children in holiday attire, and the Association marched through a veri table sea of colored lights. Bombs ex plode dand rockets flared, while myriads of colored balls of lightfropi Romancan dles formed moving arches o ver the heads of the paraflers. At A tinhe grove all sorts of games weret indulged in. including baseball, football, highball, rubberball and pavil ionball (of the white-seal variety). All who indulged in the latter game got knocked out, but recovered in time to march well in the night parade. In addition to Dead Animal Man Vat cky s sensational boarding of the steamer Isabel after she had left the Morris street dock, there were other amusing features of the.outing. Saloonkeeper Pat. Connol ly. of Communipaw avenue, surveyed the flag decoration of the steamer and espy ing the flag of England among those of other nations that adorned the boat re fused to board it until the flag was low ered. "I won't sail under any flag that caus ed me to leave my native land,” he said. The committee lowered the flag, but that didn’t merely satisfy Mr. Connolly. He insisted that the emblem of Ireland should he hoisted in its stead. His wish was gratified. All sorts of political booms were sprung, but it’s rather premature to dis cuss them. SOMEWHAT A MYSTERY At 12:50 o’clock this A. M. Charle* -Reilly, a Pennsylvania Railroad brake man, found an unknown man lying un conscious on the top of a freight car in the Harsimus Cove yard of the road.

BUFFALO LAWYER UNDER JRREST Charged With Larceny Ey Tailor Harry L- Davis of This City NABBED AT P. R. R. DEPOT TWO MEN REPRESENTING THEM SELVES AS U. S. COURT OFFI CERS HAD PREVIOUSLY TAKEN FROM MR. DAVIS’S STORE MONEY AND JEWELRY VALUED AT $050. Eugene Warner, a well-known lawyer of Buffalo, New York, was arrested as he stepped from a train in the Pennsylvania Railroad depot yesterday afternoon, on a complaint of grand larceny preferred by Tailor Harry L. Davis, of Warren and Montgomery streets. The arrest was made by Detective-Sergeant Michael Clarke, who was armed with warrants for the arrest of Warner and David Rus lander, also a Buffalo lawyer. Mr. Davis alleged last night:—“On March C. last, Eugene Warner and David Ruslander, of Buffalo, came to my store accompanied by two other men. Both Warner and Ruslander represented them selves as United States court officers, and grabbed, against my will, all books and papers from my office aud safe, also took $50 in cash and a bag of jewelry valued at over $000, and falsely put me under arrest. Warner claimed to be a receiver appointed by the United States eourt. He falsely took possession of my store. A short time afterward I was in formed that Warner and Ruslander had no authority to do what they did, and that they had misrepresented themselves. I at once commenced legal proceedings, and intend to prosecute them to the full extent of the law.” It appears that a petition in bankrupt sy had been filed in Buffalo against Isaac Davis and trustees appointed. ■Harry Davis said that the two lawyers and two men who accompanied them, claimed that his brother’s estate in Buf falo had a claim against the Davis Tail oring Company in Jersey City. “It was a high-handed proceeding,” said Mr. Da vis. “I at first refused to hand over my books and papers, and they took them by force. The warrants were issued by Judge Manning.” Warner, the Buffalo lawyer, was lock ed up last night and was this morning taken to the County Jail on a capias by Deputy Sheriff Erwin. He has commun icated with his Buffalo friends. BINGHAM LIKESMURPHY PLAN 'Some time ago Commissioner Bing ham, of the New York City Police De partment, secured from Chief of Police Murphy, of this city, a paper explaining the two platoon, or eight section, system of police duty that for many years was worked successfully in this city. Yester day Commissioner Bingham, after study ing many plans for patrol and reserve duty, expressed himself as well pleased with the Jersey City system. The sys tem referred to puts one-fourth of the force on post from 8 A. 'M. to 1 P. M.; the same number from 1 P. M. to 6 P. M.; one-half less one-sixteenth from 6 P. M. to midnight, and the same number from 12 o’clock midnight to 6 A. M„ and one-eighth of the force from C A. M. to 8 A. M. This gives the men but six hours patrol duty one day and a couple of hours extra the next day. The re serves. under the system, serve twelve hours each fourth day, hut every man lias thirty hours off each eighth day.

Sea board Air Line, 1133 Broadway, New THAW DEFIES MOTHER Slayer of Stanford White Deter mined to Have His Own Way In Matter of Counsel. STANDS BY FORMER ACTION. Dismissal of Legal Advisers Confirmed by Actio of Prisoner — Objects to Family’s Treatment of His Wife. Fears Commitment to Asylum For Criminal insane. New York, July 19.—Unmoved by the tearful pleading of his mother, Harry K. Thaw threw down the gauntlet to his family and not only informed them that he would resist any effort they might make to have him committed to an insane asylum, but impressed on them the fact that Black, Olcott, Gru ber & Bouynge, who had been retained by the mother, were out of the case as far as he was concerned. To emphasize his position Thaw made an affidavit in which he said the firm had been retain ed by him, but had been dismissed lat er. On the strength of that affidavit Clifford W. Hartridge went before Jus tice Blanchard and obtained an order directing Black, Olcott, (Umber & Bon ynge to show cause why they should not turn all the papers in the case oyer to Hartridge. Stormy Soanes In the Tombs. The step to take the papers away from Oleott's firm was taken after stormy scenes in the Tombs between Thaw, his mother and his wife. Twice the mother visited her son and pleacfed with him to let Olcott handle the case. But the prisoner remained obdurate and instructed his lawyer to get all the papers in the case away from Olcott. When the prisoner read that his moth er had asked Olcott to continue the case it was said in the Tombs he almost went wild with rage. He paced up and down his cell, and when his wife ar rived he was so violent in his denun ciation of the action of his mother that the wife hurried out of the prison after being there less than ten minutes. A half hour afterward Thaw’s moth er and her daughter, Mrs. George L. Carnegie, visited him. The scene be tween mother and son was stormy. Mrs. Thaw, it was said, assured her son she was acting in his interests and begged him to permit Oleott’s firm to come back. Thaw refused point blank. It is said that at the later interview in the Tombs Thaw told his mother he did not like the way his wife was being treated. The wife, Thaw said, was being neglected shamefully by the other members of his family, and such treatment of her would have to stop. The elder woman* who was willing to accede to anything her son asked in order to calm him, apparently agreed to become friendly toward the wife, and the two women left the prison to gether. Insists on Having Own Lawyer. It was thought that after Mrs. Thaw agreed to become more cordial iu her treatment of her son's wife he would quiet down iu regard to Black, Olcott, Gruber & Bonynge, but he had detei» mined It was his right to say how his case should be handled and that he would not have any lawyer who went counter to his wishes. He feared that if he gave Olcott’s firm the semblance of authority to act for him they would apply for the ap pointment of a lunacy commission and have him sent to the Asylum For the Criminal Insane in Matteawan, where he would be held in confinement until the end of his life unless he should be come sane again. Then he would be "returned instantly to the Tombs and would have to stand trial for the crime, as If nothing had intervened. Rogers Ordered to Pay $1,500,000. Boston, July 19.—A decision favora ble to the plaintiff was handed down in the United States circuit court in the case of George W. Pepper, receiver of the Bay State Gas company of Del aware, against Henry H.

The court orders that one-half the profit of the sale, or $1, 500,000, be turned over to the gas com pany by Mr. Rogers. Kinnan Lawyer In Tombs. New York. July 19.—Argument on the writ of habeas corpus granted by Judge Blanchard in the supreme court In the case of Burton W. Gibson, former coun sel for Mrs. Louisa M. Stenton, who was arrested at the close of the inquest into the murder of her daughter, Mrs. Alice C. D. Kinnan, was adjourned at the request of the district attorney’s office. The bail was continued at $25, 000, and not being able to furnish that amount Gibson was sent back to the Tombs. “Millionaire Baby” In Peril. Newport, It. I., July 19.—Mrs. John Nicholas Brown is on the verge of nervous prostration because of a ru mored bold plan to kidnap her six year-old son, John Nicholas Brown, "the $10,000,000 baby.” Detectives in the employ of the mother of the multi millionaire boy have laid bare what they say is a plot to kidnap the young ster and hold him for a $500,000 ran som.

New York, July 19.—Though the four members of the International Policy Holders’committee—Judge George Gray, General Benjamin F. Tracy, Colo nel A. M. Shook and H. N. Higinbotli am—who were placed on the Mutual Life’s “administration ticket,” emphat ically declined the nomination and for mal protest against the ticket was tiled with the state insurance department, the Peabody administration declared that the four men would have to re main as candidates. The committee resented the placing of the names of four of their members on the sarnie ballot with the McCurdy “old guard,” but Mr. Rogers, who is still the dominant force in the Mutual, decreed that they should remain on the ticket on the ground that there was no legal process by which their names could be removed. This is a question which will be fought out in the courts probably through mandamus or injunction pro ceedings. Samuel Untermyer, counsel for the International Policy Holders’ commit tee, took steps in this direction by send ing a telegram to Superintendent of In surance Kelsey demanding that the names of the four men be eliminated from the “administration ticket.” Indicted Officials Renominated. New York, July 19—The Burnham administration of the Mutual Reserve Life Insurance company outdid the Mc Curdyites in the Mutual Life in nom inating Its ticket, which was filed at Albany. Frederick A. Burnham, presi dent, and George D. Eldridge, vice president, were both renominated, though both are under indictment on criminal charges of misappropriation of the policy holders’ funds. SAYS HARTJE STOLE PAPER. Pittsburg Millionaire Accused In Trial of His Divorce Suit. Pittsburg, July 19.—To the charges and counter charges of perjury which almost daily have characterized the Hartje divorce trial there was added the accusation by John Freeman, the wife’s attorney, that the millionaire’s aids had stolen a certain paper from his office. Hartje’s attorneys sprang to their feet and hotly denied the charge, adrjing that trfe paper was picked up in the street. Other witnesses testified that Mary Dillon, a servant known as the “Other Mary,” had sent to Coachman Madine the letter which Hartje says his wife addressed. Attorneys Freeman and Ferguson became almost beside themselves when the charges of theft were made. The result of the trouble was appar ently a victory for Mrs. Hartje, as At torney W. B. Rodgers, for the libel lant, was compelled by the court to return to Mr. Freeman a paper prepar ed in Mr. Freeman’s office as well as another letter of Mr. Freeman’s which, he said, had been surreptitiously taken from his office. Misses Ida and Helen Scott were star witnesses for their sister. Miss Helen’s direct examination closed when court adjourned after counsel for the libellant had introduced-a num ber of letters said to have been'writ ten by her and which prove, according to the counsel for Mr. Hartje, that Helen Scott had knowledge of the al leged relations between M.Hartje and Tom Madine. The witness denied the authorship of all these new letters except two. Rhode Island Not Badly Hurt. Washington, July 19.—A short tele gram received nt the navy department from Captain C. G.

FOR CONGRESS OF NATIONS. Commission Favors Converting Hague Conference Into Permanent Body, to Be Assembled Regularly—Union Plan ning to Take In All Existing Legis lative Bodies. London, .July 19. — Congressman Richard liavtholdt of Missouri is here busy ■ preparing for the conference of the interparliamentary union, which begins July 23. Mr. Bartholdt, who is president of the United States delega tion, said: “The most important matter to come before the conference is the report of the commission, appointed at the Brus sels session last August, to consider my motion for the establishment of an international congress with at least ad visory powers and perhaps with a slight sphere of actual authority. “The commission is composed of some of Europe's most eminent states men. Its president is Sir Philip Stan hope, who. was recently elevated to the peerage. Mr. Stanhope, under his new title. Lord Weardale, will pre side over this memorable session of the union. “The report of this commission is unanimous for converting the forth coming Hague conference, called at its request, into a permanent body, as sembling automatically and periodical ly, and for reorganizing the interpar liamentary union, so it can more ef fectively co-op#rate with that body in developing * system of international law to take the place of war. Will Present Plan at The Hague. “This plan will be presented to the second Hague conference, with the en tire influence of the interparliamenta ry union behind it. “The second Hague conference will certainly listen attentively to the re quest for the periodic assembling of such a body, and, regardless of the ac tion taken by that conference, the cur rent of events will force the nations to send representatives to such a confer ence every few years. “It is certain, therefore, that a per manent international parliament will be created at an early day, and I am satisfied also that the union will de clare for a general arbitration treaty, so that the day is won for all the propositions put forward at the Brus sels session last year. I have decided, therefore, to propose another forward step. To Take In All Legislatures. “The interparliamentary union has established itself in all the parlia ments of Europe, and even Japan as well as Russia will be represented at this Loudon session. But its member ship is weak in some parliaments, and the Spanish - American parliaments have not organized any groups. I in ted to propose a plan for organizing groups in these national parliaments where none now exist. “I will propose also that each group be requested to call on its government to make an annual appropriation to hasten the general adoption of arbi tration as a substitute for war. “No one proposes to abolish war at once, but the present situation certain ly justifies the advocates of progress in nerving themselves for a determin ed campaign during the next decade.” After Cottonseed Trust.

SLAIN BY INSANE MAN. Inmate of Aoylum Kills Two Women and Fatally Wounds Keeper. Scranton, I'a., July 19.—A terrible tragedy was perpetrated in tlie Hill side home when one of the insane pa tients killed two of the inmates and mortally wounded one of the keepers. The murderer is Ignatz Krewzyp, a deaf and dumb Pole, who was not re garded as dangerous. He was given work in one of the wards with two women, also Insane patients—Mrs. Ann Golden, a widow, aged fifty-three years, and "Missouri” Ann Van Val en, aged fil'ty-eight years. The three were moving some cots under the di rection of Keeper Richard Davies, who left the room momentarily. Seizing the opportunity afforded by the keeper’s absence, the insane man ran into the doctor’s office and there picked up an amputating knife with a blade about ten inches long and ran upstairs to the upper floor. Keeper Davies ran after Krewzyp, and the latter turned upon him and buried the knife in the keeper’s chest. He then . ran upstairs and attacked the two wo men.
