Reports for the current month were
( submitted at a meeting of the West
Orange Moard of Health last night,
and showed health conditions to be
good. Richard Schroll, secretary of
the board, and registrar of vital sta
tistics, reported ten cases of measles,
six of chicken pox, four of tuber
culosis. and one of scarlet fever
during the month. No cases of diph
theria, lie said, existed in West Or
ange at presnt. During the month
but four deaths occurred.
As the result of a communication
from the Infant Hygiene League, of
the Oranges, requesting that the
health board appoint a delgate to at,
tend the meeting of the league, the
board elected Dr. Morris Farkas,
health officer of West Orange, as its
delegate. Another communication
was received from the Mosquito Ex
terminating League, Newark, re
questing the cooperation of the board.
Believing that if it is possible to
catch fish in the Passaic river there
should be some chance of getting
clams in or near the murky stream,
Samuel Jones, no home, today went
to the river and sought them. He
dug for some time, according to his
own story, and he finally struck a
"cqpper mine.”
When Patrolman Shepherd met
l Jones his attention was attracted to
the man’s bulging pockets. Jones
was taken to the police station, where
he told the clam story in explaining
how he got the wire. Recorder Leon
ard A. Wimmer sent him to Jail for
sixty days.

Darwin's theory of the evolution of
man caused much debate last night
by the Irvington Board of Health.
The question was this: Resolved,
That it is not necessary to take out
a permit to keep monkeys. Contention
was made that if a monkeye is a man,
then, of course, no permit can be re
quired. If a monkey is an animal,
then the Health Board’s ordinance re
quires .the issuance of a permit.
Health Inspector Joseph K. Click
enger reported to the board that in
canvassing the town for persons who
have neglected to take out permits
for animals and chickens, he discov
ered that some fifteen monkeys are
housed at 41 Tiffany place. The owner
is C. Britlandin.
Mr. Cllckenger asked the board if
he should demand that a permit be
taken out. This-unfortunate question
immediately caused trouble. Com
mlssioner Otto B. Argast contended
that as a monkey has four feet, of
course it is an animal.
"You don't know but what a mon
key has two hands," replied Mr.
Commissioner Julius Bartosch
cautioned Mr. Argast about being too
hard on the monkey tribe. “We must
be a little lenient with monkeys, as
we are descended from them,” he
"That must be the reason the hair
on your head stands up so," inter
posed Commissioner Hardgrove.
The discussion then ended, and the
board adjourned without any more
"monkey business." Mr. Clinckenger
declared to a Star reporter later that
no permit will be required. Appar
ently, either satisfied in his own mind
that a monkey is a man or that, if an
animal, then the specific case is not
covered by the health code.
Average Higher Than That of
Other Towns.
That dairy conditions in Irvington
are very good was shown by written
reports submitted to the Board of
Health of that town at Us meeting
last night by Dr. Frederick C. Rob
ertson. State dairy inspector. At the
invitation of the board Dr. Robert
son made a tour of inspection some
weeks ago and declared then that
he was pleased with the results.
An average of 77.825 points was
maintained by the sixteen dairies
from which the reports had been re
ceived by Health Inspector Joseph
K. Clickenger. The highest score
was 83 points and the lowest 63
points. A score under 60 points
debars a dairyman from selling milk.
Among the dairies which scored high
was the one about which there was
much publicity several years ago on
account of its condition.
Especially gratifying to the Irving
ton board Is the fact that this aver
age score of 77.825 is five points
higher than the average scores of
other towns and cities inspected by
the State authorities. From reports
compiled in 1911—the latest figures
in the possession of Mr. Clickenger
—it is shown that among the twenty
odd towns and cities inspected the
highest average score was 72.25. The
minimum was 52.25 points.
Furthermore, these scores were ob
tained after a second inspection
which gave dairymen opportunity to
improve existing conditions. The
records for Irvington are for the first
inspection this year. A second w'ill
take place later.
The list of towns referred to In
cludes Morristown, New Brunswick,
Princeton, Roselle, Metuchen, Bor
dentown. Asbury Park, Dover,
.Kearny, Madison and Millburn.

Controversy Over Transfer of
Members Watched With
What answer, if any, the Rev.
George Fountain, pastor of the
Methodist Episcopal Church, of Irv

controversy which has arisen be
tween himself and the Rev. William
H. Hainer, pastor of the First Chris
tian Church, over transfers of mem
bership from the Methodist to the
Christian churches, is eagerly await
ed in Irvington church circles. The
trouble arose over the refusal of
Mr. Fountain to grant a letter vrans
ferring the membership of Albert
Denman and family, of 186 Nesbitt
terrace, to the Christian Church.
The action of the Rev. Mr. Foun

Hainer, of the Christian Church, to
announce to his congregation why the
newcomers had no credentials to

Star several days ago the Rev. Mr.
Fountain visited The Star’s office and
complained about unfair treatment.
He furthermore, stated that he had
never refused to grant dismissals. In
Investigation by a Star reporter
brought to light the following letter,
needing no further comment, printed
exactly as thp original, including er
rors, probably slips of the typewriter:
May 18, 1913.
"Dear Brother Denman:
”1 have made up my mind not to
give any more letters to the Christian
Church. If any one from the Metho
dist Church desires to unite with
that church I will dismiss them, and
then they can join it on profession of
faith or any other way they wish.
"I am sorry that I have to deny
you in this matter. Our deciplne says
W'e may give letters to other churches
but it does not command us in this
matter. If you desire to be dismissed
from membership I will do so upon
your request.
The dissatisfaction in the church of
the Rev. Fountain is due, it is said,
to the rigorous stand he has taken on
certain political matters and also to
his attack on certain city officials
and the liquor interests.
No less than seventeen nuisances
of a major kind were abated In West

Orange, and of these, only twenty
three have paid their license fees for
the year.
According to Dr. Farkas notices
were sent to these delinquents in
April, and again in May. Now, he
declares, If after' three days have
passed there arc still any who have
not paid they will be given their
choice of the $10 additional penalty
or having their licenses revoked. A

ing that the Florence avenue school
is unable to accommodate its pupils
properly, that the section is growing
rapidly and that a school should be
situated in the vicinity of the place
above mentioned.
The commissioner said the corner
property at that point, 250x300 feet,
is owned by former Mayor William

pear anxious to sell. Mr. Folsom,
who is chairman of the new building

emphasized bis colleague’s remarks
and urged that the matter be taken
up without delay.
Miss Bernettie P. Colt recognized
the need of a new school in the ward,
but suggested that an addition be
placed on the Florence Avenue School.
The principal. Miss Sarah J. Betts.
Miss Coit said, has long pleaded for

thought an ndditlon might be less ex
pensive than a new school and serve
the same purpose.
