Famous Suit Brought by Con
gressman Parker, Resumed in Chancellor’s Court. TESTIMONY IN CASE FILLED 2,637 PAGES Plaintiff Asks That New Jersey Zinc Co. Be Restrained from Taking Ore. For five days, beginning with today, Vice-Chancellor Howell will hear argu ment in the injunction proceedings and for an accounting brought by former Congressman Richard Wayne Parker against the New Jersey Zinc Company, In which the litigants are at odds over their respective interests in mining rights in Sussex county. When the trial was on several months ago it took twenty-nine days to hear the tes timony, which was largely of a tech nical character, and some of the most eminent members of the bar of the State ■were "in it." Stenographer Jesse R. Salmon took enough notes to fill 2,212 pages of testimony, and this with the ■words about the exhibits, which were numerous and covered many expensive models, brought up the whole number Of pages to 2,637. Three Important Points Itnlned, Three points were raised and argu ment on them begun by Chauncey G. Parker, a brother of the congressman, who, together with former Attorney General Robert H. McCarter and Charles D. Thompson, of Jersey City, represents the complainant. The first point involved is that roy alty and tonnage are payable to Mr. Parker on ore, not merely upon con centrates, especially when the concen trates can bo only estimated and have not been weighed separately. As to the second point, it is held that there should be an account of the weight of the ore taken generally as well as the value of that taken "se cretly and fraudulently,” as the papers put it, from the pillars reserved for Mr. Parker’s mine. In this connection, too, tho court is asked to appoint a manager to supervise the operations. Tho third and last point asks for a decree for an injunction against any removal of complainant's ore through any other mine, and for tho mainte nance of his mine/' according to the contract, as an independent mine ca pable of producing in case of surrender or expiration of the lease. Failed to Arrnuut for Ores. Among the points within this last point raised it is argued that the de fendant company failed to weigh and account for the ores separately from 1894-1899; that detailed weights were not given as demanded, but “were jug gled by subtracting loss in concentra tion from the Parker ore and adding that to the Lehigh ore, and that the weights were only taken out at even thousands. Then, too, it is argued in behalf of the former congressman that in 1903 over „,200 tons of ore were mined with out weighing, and “fraudulently and secretly,” to quote the papers in the case, carried into the next year’s ac counting. Estimates of the company’s engineers on another occasion, it is held, showed 188,000 tons taken from the mine, while Mr. Parker’s engineers re ported nearly 214,000, and It Is also held that on the statement rendered there is due more than $36,000 for royalty and tonnage, including what is due with Interest for tho 1903 account carried over into 1904. Those fighting for the zinc company are Richard V. Llndabury, Frederick J. Faulks and former Justice Gilbert Collins, of Jersey City.

Everywhere may be seen the festive van backed up to a curb in front of a house Where the strained relations be tween landlord or janitor and tenant have reached the bursting point. Strong men inured to the work of breaking up homes and the furniture appertaining thereto are finding this their busy day and the pressure shows ever and anon in their impassioned conversation and their periods of ex treme irritability. Old-fashioned Ben Franklin said three removes were 11s bad as a lire, but there are any number of householders who will be ready to go before a notary this evening and take oath that in these en lightened days one of the said removes is worse than an unprotected-by-insur ance conflagration. May Day has its queen, but moving day has its czar, the grizzled chief of the van, .hose lightest word is law, from which there is no appeal. About each covered wagon waiting at the curb to receive the lares and pen ates. the frvlng-pans and other bric-a brac of the family, which was going away, there were clustered today an interested group of the children of the neighborhood, hoping against hope that they would be fortunate enough to see the van men fall clown the stone steps with the piano, or the master of the house kill one of the despoilers In cold blood. It was exceedingly interesting to watch their bright little faces glow with expectancy when a near-accident promised something of graver import, and to note the eager way they drank in some of the newer forms of invec tive.

That the lnsurrectos are more willing to end hostilities is not denied, but they will not treat with Carabajal un less he comes with full powers. The meeting place selected for the conference lies on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande amid a grove of wil lows. Forty-four rifles destined for the [ rebel camp were confiscated by troop- , ers of the Fourth Cavalry yesterday, when delivery of the arms was at tempted in fulfillment of a contract made before there was any thought of the present armistice. CORRAL DENIES HE SAID U. S. FOMENTED REVOLT. Mexican Vice*President in Paris Seeking Health. PARIS, May 1.—Vice-President Cor ral. of Mexico, arrived here today, and in a statement made to tho Associated Press denied that he had ever given an interview at Santander or elsewhere In which he criticised Americans as hav ing fomented the revolution in Mexico. On ApHl 27 El Imparclal, of Mexico City, printed a dispatch from Santan der, Spain, in which Corral was quoted as saying that the revolution In Mexico was fomented by Americans desirous of intervention by the United States. According to the dispatch the vice president said that In case of Interven tion all Mexicans, regardless of party, would unite to fight the common enemy. The vice-president discussed his physical condition In a humorous vein, saying that he really did not know what ho "had." One doctor had told him that his trouble Is "bile.” "As the home doctors have disagreed.” he con tinued, "I have come to Europe for more advice and hope that before I re turn I may learn exactly what the trouble is.” YOUNG CARL ON PROBATION. Anna Shields, a 17-year-old girl, who was picked up on the streets at an early hour today by Patrolman O'Brien, was placed on probation for a term of one year by Judge Hahn, in the First Precinct Police Court. The girl stated that she lived in New York, but that since the death of her mother a week ago she had been working In this city as a domestic. Sunday night she lost her position and was wandering about the streets looking for a boarding house. The girl also stated that her father was unable to look after her, as he had seven other children. The pro bation office will endeavor to secure employment for the girl. \ i REASON HERO DIDN’T GET $1,000 FOR SAVING LAD -- A-I Father Couldn’t Afford More Than $5, and Modest Res cuer Took Only $2. Martin Guetz, of 353 New street, would have paid gladly $1,000 to th# man who rescued 7-year-old Martin Guetz, Jr., from the Morris canal yes terday, and more, for that matter, had he been abl#, but such prodigality was out of the question. Tet he did the very best he could do. and Insisted that William Babbit, of Paterson, who had Jumped into the canal and dragged Martin to the bank when the little fellow was unconscious, accept $5. Babbit couldn’t see it that way at all. He said he hadn’t rescued little Martin with tho Idea of being paid for It, and he would have done the same for any one in like plight and that Mr. Guetz couldn’t afford to be paying out money to everyone who happened to pick one of his children out of the canal. Guetz was obdurate and in the end Babbit offered to compromise. He said he would take $2, but not a cent more, and Guetz was forced to agree. Martin Guetz, Jr., Is as much of a hero today among the children of the neighborhood as though he had slammed out a home run yestorday for the Tlgerettes and had broken up the game, but he bears his honors modestly, and is perfectly willing to repeat the story of his experience every time a new admiring group forms. LEDERER, NOW LESSEE OF KRUEGER AUDITORIUM. % John M. Lederer had a broad smile today for everybody as he Is busy re ceiving the congratulations from all his friends, on account of taking posses sion of Krueger Auditorium that he had so successfully managed for a number of years. Mr. Lederer takes possession of the place today with the best wishes W his former employer, Leon Stears, who is retiring. That the now' owner has the good will of everybody connected with the place was Indicated when he received a floral horseshoe eight feet high and about five feet across from the em ployees of the auditorium. The Gottfried Krueger Association sent a floral horseshoe, among a num ber of others, and from present Indica tions it seems that before night the place will look as much like a florist’s shop of a leafy bower. ALLAN A. RYAN ARRESTED FOR SPEEDING IN JERSEY. NEW YORK, May 1.—Allan A. Ryan, son of Thomas F. Ryan, and August Tschlnky. an automobile manufacturer, were arrested at North Bergen, N.

The efforts of the local Board of Trade to secure better service for the commuters of the Erio Railroad were rewarded today when a letter was re ceived by James M. Reilly, secretary of the board. The missive is from R. H. Wallace, general passenger agent, and states that the train for Midvale, which formerly did not stop at the Newark station, will halt at that point In the future. This train reaches Newark about 6 o’clock in the evening and will be of great convenience to commuters on that road. MRS. WILSON RECOVERING FROM ACCIDENT INJURIES.

CAPE MAY, May 1.—The famous Stockton Hotel on the beach front, built by the Pennsylvania Railroad Company in 1869 at a cdst then deemed immense, of $6UU,000, is about to be de molished. ft has been the great land mark of the South Atlantic coast, and is full of interesting associations. The hotel is a massive structure, built of wood and of Greek architecture, and is of imposing appearance. It is sur rounded by great pillars, reaching from the broad piazzas to the roof. The halls, dining-rooms and ballroom are very large in size, and the many room* are spacious. The Stockton for many years was the social centre of the overcrowded cottage colony at Cape May. It was largely patronized by Southern families, and women who now are grandmothers danced as young girls in Its great ball room. -Many national notabilities ap peared at the Stockton cverj^ycar, and In the height of the season ihe scene at the great hotel in the evening was full of life and commotion. There was a refinement in the patronage of the hotel that made its greatest charm. Presidents Were <■»tests. President Arthur was a guest there in 1883, and President Harrison in 1892. Men of national prominence have been its guests each summer season, and the wealthy of the nation have made it their summer home. The hotel was sold by the Pennsyl vania railroad to Messrs. Kempton & Patterson, and they disposed of it to F. Theodore Walton, of Philadelphia, who failed in 1894. The property was then bought by John F. Betz, a Phila delphia brewer, with a penchant for buying property and letting it go to decay. Betz carried out that policy with the stockton until his death. The hotel gradually deteriorated, the wood decayed for lack of paint and the patronage fell off. Different managers had charge, prices were cheapened and the hotel lost Its character. The site of the hotel Is a splendid one, and upon the grounds attached half a dozen large hotels might be built. It is proposed to build a modern hotel and cottages. The best patronage of Cape May now goes to the splendid Hotel Cape May, which stands close to the ocean on land a mile up the coast that six years ago wfas a noisome morass. In the fover of the hotel Is a gigantic oil painting of Commodore Stockton, well known to the many thousands of people who visited the hotel in past years. S. I. A.

Morristown, on this day, the exercises were of a most dignified character, and while not held directly under the aus pices of any of the State societies many of the compatriots of New Jersey at tended. Dr. Edwin A. Alderman, presi dent of the University of Virginia, was the orator, and his message was most heartily received. This is an annual custom qf the Washington Association, which has been organized for the pur pose of retaining the building identical ly as it existed when Washington made his headquarters there In - the winter of 1779-1780. It is well worth a visit by any of the compatriots who are In the vicinity of New York, and can be reached within an hour’s travel. It may not be out of order to state that Morristown Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, has taken up the project of marking the route that Washington took while on his way from Princeton to find a camping place for the winter 1776-17 77. Paul Revere’* Descendants Donate. "It is also worthy of note to record that direct descendants of Paul Re vere, the midnight rider at Lexington and Concord, have given large sums of money for the placing of an ornamental base at the bottom of a Liberty pole at Morristown, which will also he well worth visiting when on.a pilgrim,-^ge to this patriotic shrine. "At the battleground of Springfield, in New Jersey, which has, for some reason unknown, been given an unimportant place in the annals of the Revolutionary war, a further tribute to the memory of the patriots of that trying engage ment of a century and a third ago, was given on June 23, 1910, the anniversary of the battle, by the dedication of a liberty pole, from which the Stars and Stripes will now be displayed on many of the anniversaries of battles and patriotic holidays.” MAY RUN FOR SENATOR. , WOODBURY, May 1,—It is hinted that Assemblyman James Lafferty will be the Democratic nominee for senator this fall from Gloucester county.
