Philadelphia Man Smashes Fur= niture and Threatens Life at Atlantic City. ATLANTIC CITY, Sept. 13. Sounds of strife, intermingled with the screums of terrified women issuing from the cottuge of Edward T. Maguire, a Wealthy whiskey dealer of Philadel phia, at Snuset avenue and the Thor oughfare, early last night caused alarm 111 that fashionable section of Ventnor. Policeman Coston, responding to cries, hesitated at first, but finally entered the Maguire home when urged by a crowd that had gathered. Coston found the door locked and barred, but with the aid of several men It was forced opened. They found practicaly every piece of furniture tn the luxurious home had been reduced to kindling wood, lamps and electroliers smashed into fragments, and in one corner of the parlor, Maguire, a knife clasped in hts hands, it is charged, was discovered bending over the half-con scious form of his wife. The whiskey dealer was overpowered and taken to a cell at police headquarters, charged with atrocious assault and battery. From Mrs. Maguire and-her sister, after they had recovered from the shock of their experience, the police learned that Maguire had reached his , home from Philadelphia last evening | and had renewed his entreaties with his wife not to appear at a hearing in | court today as the result of a sensa- j tional incident on Lake Bay some | weeks ago. At that time Maguire, with a handsome young woman from Phila delphia, it was alleged at the time, was discovered hy a detective in the employ of Mrs. Maguire. Maguire and the young woman were arrested and ar raigned before Magistrate Jagmetty, who held them in $1,500 bail for a fur ther hearing, and their case was to have come up for trial today. rtOME FOR BOY FOUND BY YESTERDAY’S STAR. Thirteen-year-old Edward Kennedy, whose address yesterday was “Any where,'' is no longer a homeless waif. Mr. and Mrs. Francis P. Mullin, of 443 ! ,T( hn street. East Newark, read his j short and troubled story in yesterday’s! STAR, and now he Is safely estab lished in their home. His wish that he could get a home on a farm, and have n bed in the hayloft, has not come true, but he has decided he would far rather live with the Mullins than with any farmer. Eddie’s new guardians are not inex perienced as parents, for they have already raised a family, who are now grown, but the story of Eddie’s trou bles ns told in yesterday's STAR, touched them so that they went to the! House of Detention and offered to adopt him. The lad comes from Scran- j ton. His only relatives are said to he In Baltimore. They collected the Insurance after the death of Edward's parents and thon cast him off to look out for himself. CONTRACTS WILL OIYE BOARD RIGHT TO RESCIND. Changes were made in the wording of the form of contracts by the Board of Education, which held a special meeting last night, which will enable the hoard to take possession of any oontract awarded by them in event of the failure of the contractor to prop erly prosecute the work of such con tract. Concurrent action was taken in the recommendation of the committee on buildings, grounds and supplies that al terations be made to the Fawcett Drawing School. The plans provide for five additional exits and the installa tion of an electric fire alarm system. LENTZ TO MAKE FIGHT FOR “PRU.” The Prudential Insurance Company, determined to prevent the assessment of its reserve fund by the city tax board, has enlisted the services of Ma jor Carl Lentz, formerly a member of the Slate Roard of Equalization of Taxes. Major Lentz says he Is confi dent the Prudential will win the fight, If It has to be carried to the highest courts of the State. Major Lentz was a member of the! Stale board for fourteen years, until j ex-Governor Fort failed to reappoint ' him in 1910. It was he who wrote the board’s opinion in 1909, exempting the reserve fund from taxation and re versing the action of the county and city tax boards, and of City Counsel James R. Nugent, who at that time and also a short time ago, claimed the fund ought to be assessed. FAMOUS BIRD-MAN WHO WILL DELIVER MAIL IN AERO AT AVIATION MEET. VEDRINE TO BE FIRST U. S. AIR LETTER=CARRIER. NEW YORK, Sept. 13.—Pierre Ve drine will be the first aeroplane mail carrier to operate in the United States. Managers of the proposed international aviation meet in New York, September 23 to 30, have arranged with Vedrine. ,\vho won the recent Paris-to-Madrid race, to deliver a sack of mail from some sub-station in Brooklyn to the aviation field, nineteen miles distant, on Nassau boulevard. IN ELECTIOII CASE [Special to the Newark Star.] MAYS LANDING, Sep'.. 13.—Appli cation for a writ of certiorari attack ing the indictments of George A. Mole and Thomas McDevltt for conspiracy to bribe voters at the last election found by the special grand Jury, test cases backed by the Republican "ma chine," was denie ihts morning by Justice Samuel ICaliseh, who read a lengthy opinion dealing with the points raised in detail. "The court acted on proper authority in appointing elisors to draw the grand Jury," said Justice Kalisch. "It would have been farcical to have permitted Sheriff Johnson to summon a jury to pass on his own case. The sheriff was not removed from office. The performance of one of his func tions was only suspended and the evi dence of his own admissions that he took the poll books from the clerks who gave him the books was sufficient to Hhow ho was an unfit person to draw a Jury to pass on election cases. It was not for the court to try the guilt or Innocence of the sheriff. I do not see that the action of the court even presents a debatable question, and the position taken by the defense Is un tenable. When a sheriff is disquali fied of any particular duty It clearly devolves upon a substitute. The mo tion is denied." James Scull, city clerk of Somers Point City, already under two indict ments, was obliged to answer six more hills this morning charging bribery an.l conspiracy and was held In further bail of $3,000. James Clark, indicted once before, answered to two more true bills and gave $1,500 more security. Charles E. C. Steelman, of the same place, an swered to nine more indictments in ad dition to two found before and gave $3,750 more bail. An endeavor will bo made by the resort reformers to force the grand Jury to take action on the Sunday liquor selling. A large sackful of evi dence in the shape of bottles of whis key, said to have been purchased on Sunday at various hotels, was brought to court, and the leaders of the move ment say they want the lid closed tight. The action of the grand jury indict ing James Scull, c ity clerk of ‘Somers Point City. Is a repudiation of Judge E. A. Hlgbee's action in taking Scull's preliminary hearing out of Magistrate Weeks's hands and dismissing the young man from custody after an acrimonious hearing, in which per sonalities were freely passed, Simon Faber, the reformer, who was re sponsible for Scut’s arrest, sat back in court today and just smiled when Scull was called to plead by Attorney General Edmund Wilson. Judge Hig bee was not present. HE’S IN A HURRY TO SECURE STAR DICTIONARY And to Hasten Is Wisdom, for They Won’t Last Forever. See that man running down the Street? Seems to be in a terrible hur ry, loesn’t he? No, lies not running to catch a train. These days are a little too warm for anybody to run to, catch even as important a thing as a train. But if you intend to get one of thoHe Star dictionaries you’ll do will to emulate that man’s example and run all the way to The Star of- i flee as he is doing. They arc going fast and the second big supply may be exhausted this week, through the heavy Inroads made on it by the gen eral demand for the book from all over the city and from the surrounding country as well. The fame of The Star educational campaign is dally spreading and let ters of congratulation for the paper's enterprise, as well as letters of satis faction over the worth of the diction ary. aro coming into The Star office in scores. And in every one of them is evinced the same spirit—that of belief that this paper is doing the peo ple of Newark and vicinity a great service In its presentation of the New Standard Webster's Dictionary In re turn for only the little coupon which appears in the advertisement on an other page and the expense bonus which is no case is higher than 98 cents. Remember, there are three styles lo select from, the $4.00, $3.00 nnd $2.00 volumes, any one of which will make a notable addition to the shelves of your library The contents of the three styles are the same, the only differ ence lying in the fact that the first named , book contains a number of three-eolored plates and charts, which the cheaper book does not. The bind ings also are dissimilar. The book which you can get for the coupon nnd 98 cents is bound in full limp leather, flexible, stamped in gold on back and sides, printed on Bible paper, with red edges and corners rounded, as strong and durable a volume as you could de sire. The book which costs you only 81 conts and the easily obtainable Star coupon is bound in half leath er, and the one that can be had for 48 cents is bound in plain cloth, stamped in gold on back and sides exactly as are the other two. It’s hardly probable that the quality of binding will have much effect on your desire to secure the book after you have once glanced at the contents. Make up your mind soon. They won't last forever. THE PENALTY OF A RAPID AGE IS NERVOUS DEBILITY Nature’s Limitation Is Over taxed in the World’s Great Rush. SPECIALISTS DISCUSS DREADED PLAGUE SYMPTOMS | - | Remarkable New Remedy Re moves Condition and Ac complishes Results. “The sooner the city mail reaches a state of mind that keeps constantly be fore him as a living, active, Impelling force the fact that good health means real happiness the better off he will be,” say the specialists who were sent here to introduce the remarkable new tonic, “Tona Vita." "A great majority of those who have called at the drug store to have us ex plain the nature of our preparation,” I continued one of these speeialists, I "have frankly said that they were suf j fering from nervousness and were all i run down, with no energy or ambition. | These symptoms indicate only one I thing, and that is that they are sttf I fering from the same trouble that af I fects more than one-half of the popu lation. "We are now living In a fast age. A high state of civilization makes ys am bltiouB, and in our mad rush to achieve success we find ourselves carelessly ex ceeding nature’s limitations. We do not stop for repairs until our conditions are serious and alarming, and we can’t go any further along. Finally, in the grasp of debility we lose our ambition and In Its plaee assume a state of lan guor, decline and depression. “Nervous debility is a miserable and most dreaded condition of the body. The organs are all disordered and nine times out of ten the system needs a complete rejuvenation Nerve food is required, new blood is needed, and buoyant spirits are necessary to make us feel that we are once more In a healthy original condition. “We have a preparation that will accomplish this very thing. ‘Tona Vita’ will relieve those suffering from such complaints as nervousness, stomaeh and bowel trouble, poor digestion, head aches, pains In the back, constipation, poor circulation, cold feet, depression and despondency. The preparation is pleasant to take, its effect Is Immediate and it proves a lasting source of benefit and relief.” Those of the public, whether man or woman, who are debilitated can see us between the hours of 9 a. m. and 8 p. m. at E. R. Petty Drug Company, Broad street. A free trial will be given to the first 990 callers provided their symptoms show them to be sufTerers from nervous debility “SOUL MATE” TALK IS “VERIEST NONSENSE,” SAYS HARRY KEMP. Harry Kemp, who has been figuring ho much In the Biiit for separation! which Upton Sinclair has begun : against Mrs. Sinfclalr. wan a guest yes- ! terday Of Herbert Howatt, at 356 Elm j street. Arlington, and, after greeting' several old friends, left for New York j on an early train today. Kemp, who : was formerly an Arlington lad, told his friend Howatt that he greatly dis liked the notoriety given him lately, and said that Ills relations with Mrs. Sinclair were simply those of ordinary , friendship, and that Sinclair knew 1 such to be the case. All the "sold- I mate” and "essential monogamist" talk, he declared, was the veriest non sense. He has been so often and so considerably misquoted that he simply will not talk again for publication, he says. Kemp Is doing miscellaneous literary work for a living. CONVENT SEEKS TO STOP R. R. FROM CLOSING ROAD. Argument was heard before Justice Parker, in Chancery Chambers today, to amend the condemnation proceed ings brought by the Morris Railroad Company against the Sisters of Char ity of St. Elisabeth and Mrs. Florence A. V. Twombley, at Convent Station, where the company Is seeking h right of way. Counsel in the case were di rected to furnish plans and maps and ! present them September 23. ( The proceedings are to secure an ■ overhead crossing over the main en trance of Mrs. Twombley's fine estate, and a right of way over the tracks of the Lackawanna at Convent Station. It was claimed by Robert H. McCar- i ter and Sherrerd Depue, on behalf of i the sisters and Mrs. Twombley, that if 1 the railroad took the fee it would ab- r solutely shut off the main entrance to I the property of the first named and c ruin Mrs. Twombley’s private drive- i way. t On the part of the railroad com- c pr.ny it was offered to give an entrance i to the convent property and an over- l head crossing to the other. i Carl V. Vogt and Alan Strong up- i pcared for the company. TWO POLICE CASES PUT RESTAURANT IN LIMELIGHT. ! The Homestead restaurant at 72 t Market street is getting well acquaint- l ed with police court ethics. Today Fred Baldwin, of 112 New street, de clared that he entered the restaurant and after heing roughly handled was thrown from the place. His condition ‘ required treatment at the City Hos- 1 pital. Joseph Rowltz. the son of the 1 proprietor, Is charged with the assault ' and was held in $200 for the grnnd 1 jury. 1 William Vaughn, a negro, went into " the restaurant and ordered pork chops. 1 He refused to pay for them because " they were not to his liking. He de clared that he was told he would have i to pay for them whether he ate or not. Max Levy, the waiter, said the negro r pulled a blackjack, but Vaughn de- 1 clared the blackjack was nothing more 1 than his fist. Patrolman Schott, who 1 made the arrest, declared that Vaughn t was very unruly when placed under t arrest. A fine of $25 was imposed. i Sewing Machine Worth $25 Special Sale of the Celebrated No. 1 Bee Hive Sewing Machines, Manufacturers’ Retail Price S25.00.
