Montclair Councilman Carrie:
Every Distrct in His
The Hindi machine won out lr
Montclair yesterday, routing all its
enemies wherever It was opposed
and punished at least one council
man. who was a former supporter ol
Mayor Hinck, but has recently op
posed almost every measure advo
cated in the council by him.
It was thought that Councilman
Russell B. Bedford, of the Flftt
ward, would have a walkover for a
renomination, but at the last mo
ment Edward E. Weisaenbom, com
paratively unknown in the ward, was
pitted against him and won out by a
vote of 96 to 68. Mayor Hinch !i
also a resident of the Fifth ward. H«
disclaims any credit for Mr. Bed
ford's defeat, but says he is no1
shedding any tears over it.
In the First ward, which include*
all the territory known as Uppei
Montclair, a determined effort wa*
made to defeat the renomination ol
Councilman Starr K. Pugh becaus*
he voted for the Farrell liquor license
The temperance element worked hard
to land the nomination for Frank W
Mayes, who, they said, could p<
counted on to banish the saloon*
from Montclair. Every avallabl*
automobile was called into action tc
round up votes for Mr.. Mayes, but il
proved of no avail. Mr. Pugh carried
every one of the three districts, and
won by a vote of 174 to 140.
Mr. Pugh’s victory is a popular on*
all over Montclair, for it is wel
known that he does not use liquoi
in any form himself, and at a public
meeting recently in Upper Montelali
he declared that he would vote for e
dry town, if the gentlemen who op
posed him because of his voting foi
the Farrell license, would agree tc
keep liquor out of their cellars and
private lockers in their clubs.
In the Fourth ward a determined
effort was made to defeat Council
man Thomas P. McGlynn, for thi
reason that he voted for the renews
of all the licenses of the present sa
loons. Mr. McGlynn, in a public let
ter recently, claimed that the salooni
were a necessity and the presen'
licensees lived strictly up to the ex
else law. He was opposed for thi
Republican nomination by George D
Dodd and John J. Doyle, but Mr. Mc
Glynn won out.
Another contest that caused con
siderable excitement was that of T
Albeus Adams, regular Democrat, whe
was opposed by Dr. Richard Col*
Newton, treasurer of the Woodrow
Wilson Club, for member of the coun
ty committee, from the second district
of the Third ward. There are onlj
a handful of Democrats in the Third
ward, which is known as the "silk
stocking” ward, and the district wa*
raked over as with a fine tooth comb
by the friends of the contestants, tc
get all Democrats to the polls. Mr
Adams. wrho is the present incumbent,
won out by a vote of 41 to 24.

Pugilist Downs Marshal and
Shoots Up Hackensack Bar
HACKENSACK, Sept. 24.—Joseph
Morris, said to be a prizefighter, shot
up the barroom of the Emerson

East Orange Police Commis
sioner Not Allowed to
Refusing to tell his age, Police Com
mlseloner Theodore Crane, of East
Orange, was not allowed to vote by
the election officers at his polling
place yesterday. Mr. Crane insisted
1 that It was only necessary for him to
declare he was over twenty-one years
old, but the election officer told the
commissioner the law specifies a voter
must give his correct age and de
clined to permit him to cast a bal
The commissioner walked out of
the place having no desire, he said
to cause any trouble. Mr. Crane last
year also refused to tell his age, and
the election officers refused to permit
him to vote, but when he took the
matter up with the county officials
they Instructed the officer to permit
him to cast a ballot.
The commissioner today declared
he never would tell his age to elec
tion officers, and that he will Insist
that he be allowed to participate In
the November election.
Another man In the city refused to
tell the owner of the house in which
he resided. When told by an election
i officer that the law stipulates that
. this must be done, he walked out of
the polling place, expressing his opin
i ion of the Qeran law In wordB which
would not look good in print.
Here’s an Autoist Admits
He Wanted All ot Road
BURLINGTON. Sept. 24.—That the
driver of a grocery wagon failed to
turn out and give him the entire
centre of the macadamized road was
the excuse, according to the police,
that Richard Day, of Germantown,
gave when arrested last evehing after
his automobile had wrecked the
wagon of a local firm and Injured the
driver, James O’Donnell. Day said
he thought that in New Jersey auto
mobiles were entitled to the improved
section of public roads and that team*,
should use the dirt wagon trail at
£(10 sides
I Magistrate Smith held the automo
bilist under bonds for a hearing Fri
day to permit an investigation by the
State motor vehicles authorities.
O’Donnell, who was badly cut about
the face and several of whose teeth
were knocked out, said he had turned
sufficiently to the right to permit the
automobile to pass when it hit the
wagon from the rear. A boy In the
wagon was hurled through the air.
Seek Passaic Man
SUMMIT, Sept. 24.—The disappear
ance of William J. Browne, of Pas
saic avenue, has been reported to the
police by his wife, who stated that
her husband had been absent from
home since last Tuesday. Since then,
she says, she has neither seen him

declares that so far as she knows

should have left, as their domestic
relations were pleasant.

Progressives Are Victors in
Many East Orange County
Committee Contests.
Surprising even his most ardent
supporters, George R. Townsend, a
comparatively new man In East
Orange politics, yesterday defeated
Charles N. Hart for membership on
the county committee from the
First District of the Third Ward,
that city. He won by two votes.
The defeat of Mr. Hart was hailed
with Jubilation by Progreslves In
the district, as they resented hlB ac
tion in having quit their ranks after
Governor Fielder failed to reappoint
him a member of the County Board of
Taxation. It was freely predicted that
Mr. Hart would have a walkover
and his defeat was not thought pos
sible until the final ballot In the dis
trict had been cast.
The contest between Messrs. Hart
and Townsend waxed warmest of any
of the county committee fightB In the
olty, Mr. Hart receiving 21 votes and
his opponent 23.
All of the regular Democratic candi
dates for membership on the com
mittee who were opposed by Progres
sives were defeated by large majori
ties. Assemblyman Lawrence Mc
Cabe, Jr., came out second best In his
contest with Edmund A. Whittier In
the second district of the Third ward,
being defeated by a vote of 36 to 18.
Principal Interest In the county com
mittee fights centred on this contest.
John J. F. Conroy, who opposed
Mayor Julian A. Gregory In the third
district of the Second ward, lost to
the executive by a vote of 33 to 13.
James F. Boyle, secretary to Mayor
Gregory, won his contest with Grover
Porch In the fourth district of the
Fifth ward, receiving 46 votes to his
rival's 18. Mr. Porch undoubtedly
would have made a much better
showing If he had filed a petition. He
did not decide to oppose Mr. Boyle
until after the legal explraUon of the
time allowed for the filing of peti
tions and was compelled to paste his
name on the ballots.
Percy Erkenbrach hard pressed Ed
ward Gagen for election to the com
mittee in the second district of the
Second ward, but he lost to the tune
of 24 to 16. Thomas H. Dermody
breezed home a winner In his con
test with Patrick J. Cahill In the first
district of the Second ward with a
majority of 12 votes, and Edward Mc
Carthy lacked 16 votes to defeat Ira
Anderson, his opponent In the fifth
district of the Second ward. The
Republicans had no contests for
county committee.
In the Sixth district of the Third
ward William Murray, regular Demo
crat. defeated William Bennett, Pro
gressive Democrat, by a vote of 30
to 24.
Says $100,000 Alimony Is
Right Sum for Millionaires
JERSEY CITY, Sept. 24.—Vice
Chancellor Stevenson, in discussing
the question of alimony in a case be
fore him yesterday, has this to say
"I should say that for a man worth
millions $60,000 is very good yearly ali
mony to direct him to pay his wife.
For he has been used to keeping her
in mansions and her position in so
ciety must not be lowered too much
on account of her marital troubles.
Yes, I should say $60,000 to $100,000 a
year is just about the right sum.”
The case before him was the suit
for maintenance and alimony insti
tuted by Mrs. Mathilde Goerz. of
Weehawken, against her husband,
Edward V. Goerz, who is in charge
of the foreign department of the City
National Bank of Manhattan. She
charges him with abandoning her,
which he denies, and alleges that al
though they lived together for nearly
four years she was never his wife.
A Anal decree had been made in the
case and Goerz was ordered to pay
weekly alimony of $14.

Breach of Promise Action
JERSEY CITY. Sept. 24.—Mrs.
Emma K. Corduan, sixty, widow, and
1 daughter of one of the oldest and
most aristocratic of East Jersey fami
lies, failed yesterday in a $50,000 breach
of promise suit against Leonard J.
McCloud, the village blacksmith, of
Kearny, McCloud is sixty-seven and
as temperamental and as sinewy as
the man Longfellow immortalized un
der the spreading chestnut tree.
The courtship of Emma Corduan
and Len McCloud ran for seven years.
During that time, the testimony to
day before Judge Vail in the Supreme
Court showed, McCloud made as
many promises of marriage as he
made boasts of hlB great wealth.
The firm of Edwards & Smith, rep
resented by former Senator Edwards,
and William G. McLaughlin repre
sented Mrs. Corduan.
Judge Vail ordered a nonsuit with
out having the case go to the jury, be
cause it was shown that McCloud is
willing to marry Mrs. Corduan, but
that she will not consent.

The Oldest Ship Afloat (launched 1790 A. D.) and Only Survivor of England’s
Terrible Fleet of “Ocean Hells.”
This Wonderful Vessel
Has Made History
Through three centuries. She marked the beginning and the end of England’s
monstrous penal system.
She has held lurid horror and dreadfu! iniquities beside which even the terrible
stories of the Black Hole of Calcutta and the Spanish Inquisition pale
into insignificance.
She is the oldest ship in the world and the only convict ship left afloat out of that
dreadful “Fleet of Hells” which sailed the Seven Seas in 1790 A. D.
She is unchanged after all these years, nothing being omitted but her human
freight and their sufferings from the cruelties and barbarities practised
upon them.
Aboard her are now shown, in their original state, all the airless dungeons and
condemned sells, the whipping posts, the manacles, the branding irons, the
punishment balls, the leaden-tipped cat-o’-nine tails, the coffin bath and
the other fiendish inventions of man’s brutality to his fellow man.
From keel to topmast she cries aloud the greatest lesson the world has ever
known in the history of human progress. ^
The Convict Ship “Success'’ is the Greatest and Most Extraordinary
Exhibition That Ever Visited America. It is a Theme for the Pen of
a Dante. When You Walk Her Decks, Grooved With the Chains of
Her Miserable Victims, the Past Will Speak to You Its Sad and Mourn
ful Lesson, But You Will Leave Feelinq Better Because You Live in
a Better Age.
The Convict Ship is lighted throughout with electricity so that her manifold wonders
can be comfortably inspected. A corps of high-class guides and lecturers are always on duty,
to conduct visitors over her three decks brimful of historic and educational interest.
