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.

THe, /*ew„ MoAie^
Tn accordance each with their man
ners and customs, England is observ
ing May Day today and Newark and
other large ports in this country are
in the throes of moving day.
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.
By nightfall a considerable portion
of the population of the city will be
adjusting itself in the old quarters
of another considerable portion of the
population, and vice versa, each en
deavoring to learn something of the
peculiarities incident to the tempera
ment of the new janitor.

■ FOIL AUTHORITY,
SAT IHSURRECTOS
Mexican Peace Conference to
Be in Willow Grove, Near
Rio Grande.
EL PASO, Tex., May 1.—Whether
Judge Carabajal, tho government peace
envoy, who is expected here tonight,
comes with full authority to act for
President Diaz, depends In large meas
ure the probability of peace terms be
ing agreed upon by the end of this
week.
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.

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

MIDVALE TRAIN TO STOP.
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

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

HOTEL STOCKTON,
COAST LANDMARK,
FINALLY DOOMED
Cape May’s Great Historic Cara
vansary, Famous on the
Coast, to Be Demolished.
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. BEGINS
Historian*Genera1 Pierson, of
Orange, Says Washington’s
Birthday Most Observed.
LOUISVILLE, Ivy., May 1.—The
twenty-second national congress of the
Sons of the American Revolution for
mally opened here today with descend
ants of revolutionary warriors here
from every State. The congress will he
in session through Wednesday. William
A. Marble, New York, president-gen
eral, presided at the opening of the
congress and the delegates were wel
comed by Mayor Head.
The report of Historian-General Da
vid L. Pierson, of Orange, N. J., was
in part as follows:
Washington'* Dnjr lloit Observed.
"It would appear from the reports
received this year that the-day most
generally observed throughout the
country is the natal day of the im
mortal Washington. Truly the spirit
of patriotism was rife the 22d of Feb
ruary last, from Maine to California,
and in nearly every State in the Union.
“At the Washington headquarters.
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.”

that Assemblyman James Lafferty will

of Louisville twit me about my husband
I will leave Louisville never more to re
turn. 1 will sell my mansion and bring
my wealth to Pittsburg and establish
my home here permanently. I have
married the man of my choice—the man

they will make their home.
Mrs. Neumeyer said:
"I hope I prove my love for Pittsburg
by the fact that Mr. Neumeyer and X
spent our honeymoon here. I will find
much solace here If the people of Louis
ville make It unpleasant for me by their
twitting. Mr. Neumeyer Is a noble
man. with an excellent moral character.
He loves me like I love him, and why
should anyone else worry about us?”
For Neumeyer’s part, he declares he/
married the woman of his choioe, and
that the people of Louisville can josh
him all they like. But If Mrs. Neumeyer
decides she wants to come to Pitts
burg he is willing also.

Mrs. Neumeyer’s wealth is conserva
tively estimated at $7,000,000.
TARIFF PROGRAM
BEING ARRANGED
IN THE SENATE
Many Hearings Will Be Held.
Committees Preparing for
Business.
WASHINGTON, May 1.—The Senate
today began consideration of a tariff
program when the finance committee
which has before it the Canadian recip
rocity bill, took up that measure and
discussed plans for hearings on It.
Members of the committee are dis
posed to give a generous amount of
time to those who desire to oppose or
advocate the measure before it is re
ported to the open Senate, but no one
would venture a guess as to the ex
tent of the committee hearing.
Many of the other newly appointed
committees were In session today. Con
siderable business accumulated during
the committee fight.
The House continued consideration
of the free list bill. In the House this
really was the legislative day of April
29, that body on Saturday having taken
a recess so as to avoid having to take
up the recall calendar, the regular or
der for Monday.

to stop his train in time to avoid
a burning bridge encountered as the
locomotl-e rounded a sharp curve near
Ravenna, fifty miles l.orth of here, last
night, an engineer on the San Joaquin
Valley branch of the Southern Pacific

opened his throttle to th<? last notch
and breught the 200 passengers behind
him safely through the flames. Just
as the train cleared the bridge the
structure collapsed.

TO RUSH NEW BUILDING
TO RAPID COMPLETION.
Preparations for the erection of the
$200,000 12-story office building at Mar

way with the agreement today between
the tenants and Dr. A. P. Ordway, of
New York, the owner. The present
building will be razed as soon as the
tenants have quit and other details ar
ranged for. John H. Ely, architect for
Dr. Ordway, today declared the work
of tearing down the building would
start about May 15.
For some time the owner and Max
Rosenblum, the proprietor of the Edwin
Cigar Company Btore, on the ground
floor of the building, could not come to
terms. It was annunced today, how
ever, that the cigar concern would
move to 196 Market street by May 6,
and would take up Its stand again in
the new building when completed, ten
months hence. F. W. Sissell & Co., of
