PHIS GERM BILL
QUESTIONS UP IB suit's COUNSEL George M. McCarthy Points Out Apparent Inconsistencies in Measure. JERSEY CITY, June 9.-George M. McCarthy, secretary of the Hudson County Republican County Committee and a member of the State Board ot Taxation, has written a letter to Attorney-General Wilson, pointing out some Inconsistencies in the Geran elec tion law: He asks how shall the vacancy be filled in either of the following eases: 1. In a district overwhelmingly Inde pendent. Socialistic or Prohibition and whose few Republican and Democratic voters decline to rerve on the election board v 2. In a decidedly Democratic district where there is no available Republican eligibles, or vice Versa? 3. In a redistricted or exclusive dis trict of homes and private residences " here no tme can be induced to serve? He says: ”1 personally believe the one-year residence clause to be an excellently just feature of the new law, but it should not have stopped there, it should have provided for probable con tingency by authorizing the county courts to appoint from the citizens of the county, regardless of residence or political affiliation. In all cases where no voter of the district can be found eligible or willing to serve. "The appended references to the law I have respectfully prepared for your consideration. “The act of April 19, 1911, sections 3 and 4 (Geran law), provides that here after 'the members of the district boards of registry and election shall be be appointed from each of the two political parties,' which means the Republican and Democratic parties. "Each of such election officers must be a resident for the period of one year in the election district in which he is indorsed for appointment' and the signers to his petition must so certify. There Are No Applicants. "Section seven provides that‘if in any election district there are no applicants ! or if a vacancy occurs the Court of Common Pleas shall select a member for such vacancy from the voters of the proper ; litical party In said elec tion district;' and 'any voter who has reason to believe that said appoint ments are not made in accordance with tin- provisions of this act’ is author ized (section nine- to petition the Cir cuit Court ior a hearing, and ‘such judge shall have power to cancel the appointments and till the vacancies (Section 9, fine 26, pamphlet copy of law) fiom the voters of the election pistriet wherein such vacancy so — grists ' “The revision of 1898. which was sup plemented by the 'Geran act,' provided for the. filling of vacancies ill this man ner: Where there was no name of candidate submitted from the district the County - Board of Elections there upon liileu Ho. vacancy 'from the citi zens 06,1410.. county’ (Seetipn 13). "A vacancy occurring after appoint ment had been made, was filled by the district- board itself from the voters of the district (Seetihn 17). "A vacancy on election day was im mediately filled by the member of the district hoard who was nominated by the 4n«: chairman as the member whose place lias become vacant' from the citizens of .he county (Section 17)."

CAMDEN, June 9.—From proceeds of the sale of his palatial home at Gloucester, on the banks of the Dela ware river, William J. Thompson did not enjoy a dollar. So he told Referee in Bankruptcy Ott here yesterday. Mr. Thompson said he received $100, 000 from the government, which bought, the property as a site for an immi grant station. Of this sum. $30,000 went to pay off a mortgage on the house, to gether with several years of back taxes. The remainder went to tlie West Jersey Trust Company, $35,000; Security Trust Company, $12,000 or $15,000, and First National Bank, $10,000, etc. "In less than a week it was all gone," said Mr. Thompson. He declared he has received large sums of money from various sources since tjic first of the year, but he had paid out about everything he had re ceived in cash. It went toward the rug mill, the ice plant and for “expen sive living.” "There were about a thousand notes,” said he. "They were coming due every day and I reduced many of them. That is where most of the money went. 1 would cover up something for a day or so. I. put $17,000 in the Security Trust Company, but it was checked out In four or five days to pay claims." Mr. Thompson will sail for Europe! tomorrow to try to recuperate his1 broken health. PATERSON SAVES BY THE APPOINTIVE PLAN. Mayor McBride’s Views Upon Commission Government. ELIZABETH. June 9.—Mayor An drew F. McBride and City Counsel Ed ward F. Merrey, of Paterson, last night told the Board of Trade and others that not onl had their city's three commis sions administered its affairs efficiently, but had also saved money for Paterson. "We are in a position at the present time to redeem every bond," said Mayor McBride. Mr. Merrey believed Paterson's sys tem much preferable to the plan which can be adopted through tile Walsh law, in that it placed the responsibility for the actions of the commissioners on the executive who appointed them, and Counsel Merrey elaborated this state ment by saying, in reply to a question, that if Paterson were called upon to vote for a similar system at the polls the plan would be adopted almost unanimously. Ho regretted that the plan did not include an excise commis sion. The. aldermen at present grant the saloon licenses. HAD FOUR PAIRS OF SILK STOCKINGS IN HER ‘RAT.” | CAMDEN, June 9.
