NUTLEY GIRL IN
ROMANCE REGUN AT COLLEGE PROM. Wedding of Miss Foss and Hart* ford Man Surprise to Latter’s Relatives. Willis Oswald Lowe, of 8 Raymond atreet, Hartford. Conn., left New York e. week ago to accept employment with the Weatern Klectric Company. Hia mother, Mrs. W. T. Lowe, was much surprised to get a letter from him yea terday announcing his marrlago to Miss Lillian Stuart Foss, daughter of Charles A. Foss, a broker, of 44 Cathe dral avenue, Nutley. Mr. Lowe'e missivo to his mother contained but a single line on a <im gle eheet of paper. It read: "Dear tla: I'm married to Lillian." For a moment Mrs. Lowe couldn’t re member who Lillian was. Then she recalled Lillian Foss, of Nutley, who had attended the Junior german at Trinity a year ago and had quite mo nopolized young Lowe's time during her visit to Hartford. Mr». Lowe found the letter exceed ingly annoying, not because of the news it contained, but because of ita lack of more news. “We never thought of objecting to the match, you must understand," said Mrs. Lowe. “We’ve known all along that Willis has been tremendously fond of Mi** Foss ever since he met her at the Junior prom, but we hadn't any expectation of anything like this. If Willis had wanted to get married with out splurging, it would have been all right with us—we would have agreed most willingly. If he had wanted a quiet wedding, with Just a few more frills, why. that would have been all right, too ” Both she and Mr. Lowe spent much of today in trying to get into commu nication with someone in New York or Nutley who could tell them more about the wedding. The meagreness of their initial information, however, made the task difficult, and last night they had nothing but the telephone tolls to show for their effort. "I don’t even know whether Willis took his Job or not,” Mr. Lowe com plained good-naturedly. Young Lowe has been taking a spe cial course at Trinity College In elec tricity and chemistry, and he was greatly elated when he set out to put some of his theory In practise. The young bride is the daughter of Charles A. Foss, a broker, of 44 Ca thedral avenue, Nutley. Miss Ellaine Hoff, of Newark, was the bridesmaid, and William H. Foss, a brother of the bride, wan the best man. The couple have gone to Atlantic City and will probably live In New York. BOY SAVES HIMSELF WHEN RUN DOWN BY AUTOMOBILE.

SUSTAIN VETO OF ORANGE MAYOR ON CONTRACT AWARD Common Council Decides to Re* advertise for Bids to Do Scavenger Work. By a tie vote of seven to seven the veto of Mayor Arthur B. Seymour in the matter of awarding the scavenger contract to John Lohman & Co., of this city, was sustained by the Orange Common Council last night. The Loh man bid was the lowest for three years and that of Patrick E. Kearns, of Or ange, -was low for the five-year period. It was decided to advertise for new bids, to be opened on July 3. Each firm bidding will bo required *o furnish the full names of each memoer of the firm. Two reports were turned in by the committee on public health. The ma jority report signed by Councilman Quinn, chairman, and Councllmen Le Master and Berryman favored award ing the contract over the mayor’s veto. The minority report was signed by Councllmen P. A. Smith and Owen C. Dolan. They asked that either new bids be advertised for, or that the con tract be awarded to Kearns. About a dozen letters were received from prominent business men recom mending Mr. Loprete, of the Lohman firm. A petition signed by more than fifty well-known citizens, Including General Edwin S. Hines, Joseph D. Holmes, Isaac H. Blanchard and for mer Assemblyman Coleman E.-KIssam favored the award to the Lohman firm. The majority report said that Loprete was rated in commercial agen cies as worth more than $50,000. V Councilman Smith, following Mr^ Quinn's motion that the contract be granted, notwithstanding the Mayor's veto, arose and said: "I don’t see why the majority of the committee should be so anxious to award the contract for three years when they were formerly in favor of five years. When we were seeking votes on the stump, so to speak, we promised to look out for the city's interests. Here is an Orange man $900 lower on the contract figure for five years, yet the committee wants us to give the job to a Newark, firm.” Councilman Harry Berryman was quick to answer. ''I’d like to tell you something," he said. "How about pay ing a man $1.75 a night to tvatch a steam roller lest someone should hap pen along and run off with the steam? Is that looking after the city's inter ests ?’’ ♦ II 1 J HARRISON—E. NEWARK. j School I omml.Hlonrr to H'rd. School Commissioner Mathew F. Fee ley, of East Newark, will become a benedict tomorrow.

I or —— South Orange Patrolman Ac cused of Calling on Domes tic While on Duty. * Adding to the troubles of the South Orange police department comes the allegation from Mrs. Henry Burt Hal sey, a prominent society woman of Fairview avenue, that village, that one of its members visited her home for a period of twenty min utes while an duty and held a con versation with one of her female em ployees. As a result Patrolman Michael Lally, who, by the way, has been be fore the police committee of the Vil lage Board of Trustees on more than one occasion for singular incidents, has been ordered te again appear and an swer Mr*. Halsey's charges. Policeman Lally was told' to appear at the village police headquarters for a hearing before the police committee at 5 o’clock yesterday afternoon. This he did in company with Mayor Arthur B. Seymour, of Orange, as his coun sel. But two members of the commit tee, Chairman Frank L. Sage and Os car Sehoenherr, appeared, William Ar thur Babson being absent. After a short session Mr. Sage announced to Mayor Seymc -r that the hearing would be postponed. Mrs. Halsey, said the chairman, was unable to be present yesterday, and he added that the committee meeting would be held within the next week. This will probably be tomorrow after noon, because Mr. Sehoenherr will sail on a European trip Thursday. Up to this time Lally had evidently not received any specific charges from the committee, at least none In writ ing, and hts counsel asked what the charges were, if any. Marshal Thomas F. Maguire was directed to furnish the policeman's counsel with a copy. Marshal Maguire- presented Mayor Seymour with a letter in Mrs. Halsey’s hand-writing. In which she charges Lally with having been In her home, but In which no date was given. “But these are not charges. There are no dates, no names, places, etc.,” said Mr. Seymour. “Let us have some thing to defend ourselves with. Why don’t you have the marshal file charges?” he acked. “We may have more charges to prefer against the officer,’’ said Mr. Sage. "I doubt if Mrs. Halsey can furnish the date in question," he added, “as the woman had no Intention of filing charges until some time after the oc currence, when during another inci dent in which the girl figured the mar shal was notified by Mrs. Halsey. “The officer,” said Mr. Sage, “is charged with leaving his post at 10:30 o’clock one night about two weeks ago and going into Mrs, Halsey's home, where he is alleged to have re mained twenty minutes.” Mr. Sage said he believed it to be on a Tuesday night. The girl has since ceased to he in the employ of Mrs. Halsey. Asked what defense he would bring. Mr. Seymour said 'Wot guilty, that's all.” Lally later said he positively did not enter Mrs. Halsey's home, but did remember meeting the girl on the street. Lally was up on a charge a few months ago of falling to kill a mad dog, at which he fired four shots. “WHO’S YOUR TAILOR?” NOT A CRIMINAL OFFENSE. That the words, “Who's your tailor?” do not constitute an offense against tho laws of New Jersey, or could even lead to civil action, was the decision given In the East Orange Police Court last ntght by Recorder Francis A. Nott, jr., when Principal Charles I. Webster, of the Franklin School, had Martin Woods, Jr., a young stenographer, ar .raigned. The words were spoken at Ashland field last week, but it was not shown who made them. There was a crowd of about fifty in the court to hear the trial, but only Mr. Webster was heard and Recorder Nott said there was nothing offensive in the remark and he could do nothing in the matter. While it was not dis closed In court what the phrase was meantf later It was explained Hamilton street, near the oval, for tho first time has a tailor, and the youths were so jubilant, "Who’s your tailor?” is now asked instead of “good morning.” MURDERED MAN’S FUNERAL TO TAKE PLACE TOMORROW The funeral of John Cronin, of 51 Union avenue, Belloville, who was murdered Sunday night on the Second, river bridge.
