IN FULL ACCORD Threatened Split in Ranks of Republican Assemblymen No Longer Feared. [Specfnl to the Newark Star.] TRENTON. Feb. 10.—The break in l the Republican minority of twenty bi/* three members in the House of As sembly has been healed, it was said s today. Peace is to reign hereafter with Assemblyman Emerson L. Rich ‘ ards, of Atlantic county, again the accredited leader of the minority. The delegation of three from Camden county and the five from Passaic with sundry others said to have been dls P affected are now back in the ranks of the unified minority. The settlement of the difficulty, Which threatened to split the minor ity, was prophesied last night. Some thing would happen today, it was said, that would convince all the members of the minority that Mr. Richards, far from being inconsider ate of the other Republican assembly men, was fully aware that they were entitled to something more than ex pressions of good will. The looked for action came short ly after the convening nf the House this morning, when Minority Leader Richards relinquished his place on one of the three committees to which he has been appointed. He arose and asked leave to resign from the muni cipal corporations committee, re questing that Assemblyman Henry S. Bcovel, of Camden county, be ap pointed in his place. His request was acceded to and Mr. Scovel’s name was substituted for Mr. Richards’s on that committee. General satisfaction is expressed by Republican assemblymen over Minor ity Leader Richards’s act It appears to be the one thing needed to close the breach in the Republican ranks, which had.reached the point where an explosion in the House was feared. The break was a very real thing, and was partly due to the feeling that Mr. Bcovel, who is really the veteran member of the minority, was neglect ed by Leader Richards. Mr. Scovel Is not a veteran in th* sense of consecutive service. He was a member of the Assembly from 1903 to 1906. He was then appointed prose cutor of Camden county, served out his full term, and came back to the Assembly again this year. Leader Richards denies that there was any break, being within the facts, as far as any overt act in the Assembly is concerned. Other Republican members freely admit that something was sure to happen unless things greatly changed. The efforts of former Governor Ed ward Casper Stokes and David Baird were called Into play, but It is gen . erally believed that he rather fell for « the insurgents. 7 All of the Republicans Insist that Mr. Stokes did not interfere, but politicians agree that evidence of the effect of his fine hand are not want ing. The Republican members also agree that the trouble is over. "Mr. Richards is now showing an inclination to ‘mix’ with his col leagues," was the comment of a Re publican bystander, who admitted that this would settle all difficulties. Mr. Richards was formerly on three Important committees—municipal cor porations, appropriations and Ju diciary. Mr. Scovel had a place on but one, that one bill revision. Either now has two committees, and every body appears to be satisfied. Fire Destroys Church GLOUCESTER.

Dr. Laban Dennis, president of tbe Public Welfare Committee of Essex County, Inc., yesterday sent a letter to Director Walter A. Evans, of the Board of Freeholders, in reply to a request from Mr. Evans as to Just what the scope of the proposed inves tigation of county affairs by agent* of the welfare committee was to con sist of. In his reply, Dr. Dennis explains the proposed survey and states emphatic ally that nothing of a political nature is to enter Into the work. The letter in full follows: "Dear Sir—The constructive survey of public institutions and activities in Essex county will be carried on by the New York Bureau of Municipal Re search, acting as a representative of the welfare committee. "Dr. F. A. Cleveland, one of the di rectors of the New York bureau, wilT be in charge of the entire survey and particular the technical work. “Dr. Cleveland is a recognized au thority in city budget-making and finance. He was the chairman of the President's Commission on Economy and Efficiency and in this capacity made a survey of the federal govern ment, organization and business meth ods. "He has been engaged In the reor ganization of the New York Mutual Life Insurance Company as well as the custom house at the port of New York. He is known as the author of 'Funds and Their Uses,’ 'Municipal Administration and Accounting,’ 'Or ganized Democracy,’ etc. “Surveys” In Other Places. "H. R. Sands was for a number of years in the division, of the United States Census Bureau, which inves tigates municipal finances and has since that time given his entire at tention to municipal work. He has been engaged by the Bureau of Pub lic Efficiency in Chicago, has made surveys in Los Angeles, Portland, At lanta, Pittsburgh and Springfield, Mass. He has Just completed the ad ministrative code for Portland. Re cently he made a county survey of Mulnommah county, Oregon, and will in two weeks begin a study of Alle gheny county, Pennsylvania. "W. B. Holton has been engaged in surveys of public works, road making and repairing. He has been engaged in Borough President Mc Aneny’s reorganization in Manhattan and In the reorganization of the Philadelphia city administration. He has made special studies in Portland, Toronto, Pittsburgh, Springfield and Reading. "Mr. Sands and Mr. Holton will be engaged in such financial accounting and municipal office problems as will come before the welfare committee in carrying out its survey. "W. A. Averill will represent the committee at its local office and will organize the citizen contact work and will direct the survey of the educa tional work of the county. "He has been a school teacher in this country and in Germany, where he served two years as an exchange teacher for the Carnegie Foundation for the advancement of teaching. He was engaged in the recent survey of the New York city public schools under the direction of the Board of Estimate and Apportionment. He has installed bureaus of school effi ciency in the education departments of Rochester and Schenectady and has conducted school surveys in Reading, Pa., St. Paul, Minn., and Hempstead, L. I. "Director Evans refers to a possible political motive on the part of the committee in a letter to Dr. Dennis, which we quote: 'If the members or your committee are desirous of ob taining Information as to the methods and policies of the Board of Free holders, they will be given the same courteous consideration that any other citizen of the county will receive in making such inquiry, but if for po litical or other similar reasons, an "investigation” is contemplated by your committee, that fact should be openly stated so that there may be no misunderstanding about the mat ter.’ “Know Your County.” The entire movement Is not asso ciated with any immediate or recent situation, political or otherwise, but Is merely a further step In the 'know your county’ program, which the committee has persistently advocated for over three (3) years. “It is absolutely Impossible that politics in any way be a motive or enter into this survey, which Is designated to be constructive and helpful. It will be the policy of the committee to submit all facts gathered by the investigators to the heads of the departments concerned for complete corroboration before any publicity is given to them. “The representatives of the commit tee will not work as outsiders, but as employees of the public welfare com mittee itself, and as such will act entirely in that capacity and not as an outside organization. “The primary purpose of the public welfare committee is first to know the facts about what the government is doing and how it is doing it, then with knowledge of facts, to help to organize public opinion in support of officers who are trying to serve the public efficiently. “LABAN DENNTS.” If the Board of Freeholders gives consent at its next meeting, Thurs day afternoon, the Bureau of Munici pal Research and it® sponsors, the public welfare committee, may go ahead with its probe and study of county offices and institutions. Director Evans, after a conference with the representatives of the would be investigators yesterday afternoon In the freeholders’ room in the Court House, announced that he would refer the matter to the board for action. Mr. Evans refused to commit himself as to how he regarded the proposed 'study,” pleading that he needed time to think it over. Much Assurance. Profuse and positive assurances! that there was no political signifi cance attached to the scheme were given by Dr. F. A. Cleveland, director dt the Bureau of Municipal Research, which has its offices in New York, and by Dr. Dennis and Edward Blau, of this city, members of the welfare committee. County Counsel Benjamin F. Jones and Director Evans plied the three speakers with questions regarding the allaged happenings at the execu tive session of last Friday, when the welfare committee arranged with the bureau to come to this county. The conference was the result of the re ported proceedings of this meeting. The source of the funds and the ob jects of the study were the principal points upon which the county officials sought light. Mr. Evans asked if it were true, as reported in the newspa pers, that there was to be secrecy about the contributors to the expense fund for bringing the research au thorities here. Mr. Dennis answered that the news | paper reports were inaccurate and produced a list of the contributors. They were, he said: “Ex-Governor Franklin Murphy, Felix Fuld, of I* IS YOUR CHILD’S 1 TONGUE COATED? If cross, feverish, constipated, give “California Syrup of Figs." __ _• Look at the tongue, mother! If coated, it is a sure sign that your little one’s stomach, liver and bowels | need a gentle, thorough cleansing at once. When peevish, cross, listless, pale, doesn’t sleep, doesn’t eat or act natu rally, or is feverish, stomach sour, breath bad; has stomach-ache, sore throat, diarrhoea, full of cold, give a teaspoonful of “California Syrup of Figs,” and In a few hours all the foul, constipated waste, undigested food and sour bile gently moves out of its little bowels without griping, and you have a well, playful child again. You needn’t coax six children to take this harmless “fruit laxative;" they love its delicious taste, and it always makes them feel splendid. Ask your druggist for a 50-cent bot tle of “California Syrup of Figs.’’ which has directions for babies, chil j dren of all ages and for grown-ups plainly on the bottle. Beware of counterfeits sold here. To be sure i you get the genuine, ask to see that ! it is made by “California Fig Syrup I Company.” Refuse any other kind with contempt.

Scudder, publisher of t'.v? Newark News. In answer to questions. Dr. Cleve land declared his firm had never un dertaken any work where muckraking <*r politics were involved. “You gentlemen are not familiar with the gnme of politics in New Jer sey and in this county,” County Counsel Jones interjected. "There are some very distinguished gentlemen who would spend thousands of dol lars to embarrass the Board of Free holders or to gain control of it, and they would not hesitate at using respectable citizens as catspaws for their schemes. There was a suspic ion that the ‘fine Italian hand’ of a professional politician appeared in this.” Would Give “Eye Teeth.” Director Evans also referred to the suspicion of the members of the board. “As Judge Jones has told you there are certain gentlemen who would give their eyeteeth to ‘get’ the Board of Freeholders. “If you can convince the‘T)oard that this is a helpful plan and not one that is useless or if^erior In design I am sure they will give the permission to go ahead, but I can hardly see what you intend to accomplish,” he added. Dr. Cleveland gave a brief outline as to what the bureau would do in the county and in the municipalities. All reports would be submitted first to the county officers concerned, and then, if they wanted to, to the press and the public. Recommendations for changes in methods and for economy would be made where it was found necessary and praise would be given where the systems were the best. The report that the bureau and the w’elfare committee had attacked the school system was erroneous the talker declared. He went on to v'ite the work done by his concern in other cities. Among the others who were pres ent during the conference, which was an open one, were Freeholder John Waters, Supervisor Edward Shick haus, County Auditor Albert T. Guen-. ther and W. A. Averill, of the Bureau of Municipal Research. $2,030,000 FOR Congressman Scully Gets Larg est Appropriation of Its Kind Ever Granted. NEW BRUNSWICK, Feb. 10.—Con gressman Thomas J. Scully an nounced yesterday in a telegram from Washington that he had just suc ceeded in obtaining the biggest Fed eral appropriation for New Jersey waterways ever granted in the his tory of the government. The rivers and harbors committee, with Congressman Scully a big fac tor in its work, finished the rivers and harbors appropriation bill and the measure is now in the hands of the public printer and will be re ported to the House within a short time.
