Alt"»'i°n5 14-ffitet l4thSwl?fc FREE /SEW YORK, k c-i- a+ 460^462 Fulton Stnrdf Alt nl* BR00KLYN \ 1^ Stores 1 BE PRESENTED TO SENATE MONDAY (Continued from Hirst Pose.) on against the votes of Commissioners Ryan and Corish. M. Bacheller thought that the intro '1$' duction of the bill should not bother the commission, as they had done their work In drafting the charter. Judge Martin said that it was the duty of the commissioners to do all In their power y to see that the bill is passed. With the exception of the judge, it apeared that the commissioners felt relieved at the thought that their work in drafting the charter had been accomplished and did not wish to concern themselves with « lobbying at Trenton. Anxious to Push Bill. The original resolution of 1907 creat fc’jF ing the commission was then produced and Interpreted that the work of the commissioners was not done until the charter had been adopted. Only Judge Martin felt confident that the bill would be passed by the present Legis lature and opposed a delay until next year on the ground that it would re move a vote on the bill until 1913. "I would rather take a chance -of having the bill defeated this year," said Mr. Martin, “than delay it. I I make a motion that all the commis sioners use their endeavor to further the passage of the bill.’’ He thought that even if the initiative, referendum and recall are not adopted they would be four years after the commission form of government had been In existence. City Cougsel Vugent advised against undue haste in introducing the meas ure Auditor Rowe Would Retain Mayor. Auditor James A. Rowe, who has fol lowed the work of the charter revision commission with keen interest, and studied their draft, in discussing the subject with a reporter suggested a change in the present draft that may settle all the controversy anent the absence of a veto power. “I believe that there should be a commission of five,” said Mr. Rowe, "and besides that a mayor. We do not want to depart from the custom of having mayors in our cities. I think that the mayor should have the veto power, and that his signature should be I required to all bond, issues and con tracts. If this plan is adopted the people will still have one person to look to in fixing responsibility. "While I believe all men honest,” continued the auditor, "I. nevertheless, believe that there should be some check on the commission. If the mayor's veto is abolished, the power of the commission will be absolute. In my Judgment the mayor's office and the right to veto all measures he dis approves is essential to good govern ment.” Mr. Rowe believes that the other features of the bill are good. He also commended the work of the commis sioners. As to the term of office for each commissioner under the proposed plan, he suggested that in the first election two of them be elected for two-year terms and three for four years, the mayor to hold office for two years. In the event of a veto Mr. Rowe said that it should require the vote of four out of flv% commissioners to pass a measure over the veto of the mayor. The auditor declared that In making the suggestions he has In mind the wel fare of the people and that under the plan now proposed the power of the commissioners would be arbitrary. “I think too much of the new obar ; k ter and have devoted too much se rious labor to the drafting of It to see It beaten,” said the city counsel. “We can take our time and advocate the different features of the charter to those who know but little about it and by the time we are ready to In troduce it In the legislature there will be little opposition by the people.” The commission expressed a vote of thanks to the city counsel for his work of drafting the new charter and his valuable assistance at all the meet ings of the commission during the last four years. It was further decided to recommend to the Common Council the payment of $1,000 to Wilson J. Vance, secretary of the commission, for his work during the four years. While some of the changes were being made In the charter, according to suggestions made at the public hear ings, some discussion arose over the provision which gives the police com missioner power to appoint skilled offi cers of experience for detective duty who may be from any other State than New Jersey. The objection made by George H. Strobell and a member of the International Brotherhood of Ma chinists was that this would permit the bringing In of strike-breakers by the city. Judge Martin, as well as Chair man Hardin, explained that the pro vision had nothing to do with the ob jection made and that It was simply to provide sufficient power for the 1 police commissioner to employ outside aid in a case of emergency If the local members of the force are not sufficient. Commissioners Corlsh and Ryan wanted the provision stricken out, but a motion to that effect was lost. “It would seriously count against the commission,” said Judge Martin, “If we could be told that we didn’t give the police commissioner enough power to get at a crowd of cutthroats and murderers." In the provision regulating the ap pointment of members of the police de partment, their duties and the power of the commissioner to fine, reduce in rank or otherwise punish, a change was made so that it is plain that the members of the department are pro tected by civil service. AUTHORIZE PAYMENT TO ASYLUM CONTRACTOR. The Board of Freeholders yesterday afternoon authorized the payment of $14,308.68 to Richard E. Henlngham, contractor for the Overbrook asylum buildings. This is In final settlement of any claims Heningham has against the county, and was ordered paid after a deduction of $1,264 for inefficient work had been made. J. Henry Harrison was elected county counsel to succeed 'William P. Martin, who is now one of the county judges. He received the vote of the seventeen Republican mi mbers of the biaid, wllle George H. Lambert was given the vote of the elevefi Democratic members present. The board again reaffirmed its reso lution passed in June, 1910, committing itself to granite pavement for the Plank road, and ordered that notice be sent to the Hudson County Board of Freeholders to that effect. R. W. Lutterworth was reappointed a member of the board of managers of the contagious disease hospital at Soho. Dr. Frank B. Meeker sent In his resignation as a member of the board of the same institution and Dr. Francis S. Haussllng was appointed to succeed him. CELEBRATE WITHOUT BANQUET. Since Jefferson's birthday fell during Holy Week the members of the Wil liam Harrigan Association yesterday celebrated it without banquet or for mal program by the gathering of the members at the club house in 645 Mar ket street. Sheriff William Harrigan and others were present and eulogies were paid to the founder of the party. Rfreehments were served later. I -—, NOW REPLACED Reports Sh,ow Good Hauls at Many Houses—Jewelry and Clothing Taken. It Is admitted by the police today that they have a new thief to deal with. He is known as the “man with the jimmy.” All the work that has been reported for the past several days shows that a jimmy has been used and that for a time at least the “key mar.” has taken a rest. The robberies which were reported to the detective bureau yesterday 'and today also bear out this theory. William P. Fields, of 976 Broad street, whose home adjoins that of Prosecutor Mott, reported that his home had been entered. Sergeants Fagan and Corbal ly, who examined the premises, found that the thief had "jimmied" his way in. Nothing of value was taken. The family was at home, but not a sound was heard. Mrs. William Rupp, of 149 South Tenth street, suffered most, according to the list of stolen articles from her apartment yesterday. The thief here, too, had gained entrance by using a j jimmy, according to Sergeants Temple- j ton and Ebert, who Inspected the premises. The following was reported as being stolen: Ladles’ gold watch, several pieces of silverware, gold necklace to which was attached a gold cross, a gold bar-pin, leather suit-case, overcoat, baby’s gold chain and locket, gold signet ring, four gold stickpins and two gold rings, one set with a small diamond. It is evident that the thieves did not work in haste, lor the entire house was ransacked, and all the plunder had been packed into the suit-case. M. L. Gardner suffered the loss of three overcbats belonging to as many i members of his family. Mrs. Charles I Goldstein, of 181 Orange street, was robbed of wearing apparel to the value 1 of $15. Mrs. Annie W. Sultz, of 151 South Sixth street, says that a thief entered her home and made off with a gold Masonic einbl ;m and a gold ring with eight pearls. Patrick Dougherty, of Bank and Wallace streets, reports that his apart ment was entered and the following stolen: Three-quarter carat diamond ring, a brooch set with a quarter carat diamond, several dozen silver forks, knives and spoons and $6 In cash.
