One Hundred and Fifty Attend
Meeting at Hamburg Place
School.
SMALL ACCOUNTS STARTED
IMMEDIATELY AT SESSION
Offices of Fund Will Be Opened
in Kinney Building
Soon.

The first "vacation evening” of the
n New Jersey Vacation Committee was
I held last night in the auditorium of
| the Hamburg Place Public School.
| About one hundred and fifty girls
listened to an interesting talk by Miss
*" Robinson Smith, of New York, who
outlined the campaign to get girls in
I this city to save their money for
vacation time. The committee, headed
by Miss Alice C. Kirkpatrick,
which has charge of the vacation
savings fund for girls and last night’s
affair, provided an evening of ex
cellent entertainment for the girls
who took advantage of the invitation
to attend. An orchestra rendered
selections, and after Miss Kirkpatrick
and Miss Smith had addressed the
girls a short vaudeville program fol
lowed. This was followed by dancing,
and refreshments were served. The
next "vacation evening" will be held
on March 9. The place of the meet
ing will be announced later.
The majority of the girls who at
tended last night had never heard
about the vacation savings fund be
fore, and had come to the school
j merely out of curiosity, but before
they left they started a small ac
count then and there, and when vaca
tion time comes around those girls
will have some ready money on hand
to go to some country place and en
joy themselves.
Prominent Women Interested.
The meeting was all the more in
teresting to the girls when they saw
that the prominent women of this
city who had been named on the New
Jersey Committee of the Vacatiou
Savings Fund attended the meeting
laBt night. They were Mrs. J. Lewis
Hay, secretary; Mrs. Franklin Mur
phy, jr., treasurer; Mrs. George Bar
ker, Mrs. Benjamin Atha, Mrs. Zach
arih Belcher, Mrs. Campbell Clark,
rs. Frederick Frelinghuysen, Mrs.
Howell, Mrs. William B. Kinney and
John Howell, Mrs. William B. Kinney
. and Mrs. Robert McCarter.
Miss Alice C. Kirkpatrick, the
chairman of the New Jersey com
mittee, introduced Miss Robinson
Smith, the chairman of the New
York committee and head of the whole
project, to the girls.
Miss Smith told the girls the hls
tory of the saving fund, saying;
“Miss Kirkpatrick has just said that
I organized the vacation savings fund.
No, I did not organize it; the girls
did that themselves. I may have
given the stone the first push, as it
were, but the credit belongs to the
handful of girls who first took ad
vantage of the plan about two years
ago. Let me tell you the history of
the fund.
/About two and a half years ago 1
got together a committee of women
who were interested in the welfare of
girls. Wre investigated nearly every
boarding house within a radius of
sixty-five miles of New York city.
Now, you girls have probably read
alluring literature and advertisements
of various country and seaside board
ing places, telling of babbling brooks,
silvery lakes, moonlight nights, etc.,
and then when you arrived at the
place the silvery lake was a duck
pond and the babbling brook a canal,
and the like. The committee's idea
was to put an end to all this sort of
thing by making personal investiga
tions and telling the girls the truth
about each place. We issudd a list
of boarding places and distributed
them.
“The list gave every possible piece
of information that could be ob
tained about the various places.
Railroad fares, daily and -weekly
board rates, time tables and the at
tractions at each place were listed.
The proprietors of the different places
* listed in our book was bound not to
charge any girl who had a vacation
committee card any more than the
amount stipulated in the prospectus.
When I returned from abroad, late in
1911, I was told that 700 girls had
taken advantage of the lists.
“I discovered that the reason more
girls did not do it was because they
did not have the money to spare to
go away from the city to spend their
vacations. The committee called a
meeting of the girls, and in December.
1911, started the Vacation Savings
Fund. The charter members of the
• Vacation Savings Fund w^e forty
three girls who deposited $-6. <0 that
first evening. Now there are 15,11J
girls on the lists, and they have saved
$112,203.60. of which $98,718.35 has since
been paid back to the girls on de
mand.
Use Stamp System.
"We used the stamp system in
saving, because it was less work for
all concerned. All a girl had to do
was to go to our office and buy
whatever denomination stamp she
wanted and paste it in her account
book. These stamps are of a special
design and have nothing to do with
the mail variety. We saw that only
a few girls were interested at first
because girls who did not live near
the offices, in New York, would have
to spend car fare. Local stations
were then established in the various
factories and stores All this was
done with the permission of the em
ployer. Your employer Is the man
who will do most to get this project
started on a largo scale in your city,
girls.”
Miss Smith then told of a few in
stances where the money saved In the
fund bv the girls had been used to
advantage in cases of emergency,
such as sickness.

Mrs. Edward F. Chamberlain
Named by East Orange Body
for Vice-President.
Members of the East Orange Board
of Education last night broke the
deadlock which has existed since their
organization meeting a week ago by
electing Mrs. Edward F. Chamberlain
as vice-president for the ensuing
year. The action of the board in nam
ing its only woman member to the
office was unanimous.
Lacking a member at the meeting
last week through the failure of
Mayor Gregory to mako the necessary
appointment, the election was post
poned until the next meeting of the
full board. Although the mayor’s ap
pointment w’as made Saturday in th©
person of Hamilton S. Corwin, presi
dent of the Manhattan and Hudson
Railway Company, of New York, the
latter was not present at the meeting
lost night, and organization of the
board was completed without him.
Mrs. Chamberlain was nominated by
Commissioner Lewis Buddy, 3d, who
declared it was a fitting tribute to
the only woman member, and ex
pressed his hope that the choice would
be unanimous.
Physical fitness as well as mental
abilities will in future be required of
teachers seeking positions in East Or
ange schools, if the recommendation
of Superintendent of Schools Edw’in
C. Broome is carried out. In his
monthly report Mr. Broome declared
that more teachers fall because of ill
health or lack of sufficient vitality
than for any other reason.

To Prepare Verdict on
Charges Against Bluecoat
Charges against Patrolman James
Derbyshire, of the Irvington police
force, setting forth that he was in
a saloon while supposed to be on duty,
and that he reported late at the po
lice headquarters, were considered by
the Irvington Town Council at a com
mittee meeting last evening.
It was decided that Councilman
Charles Hartkopf, chairman of the
police committee, present a recom
mendation to the council at its ses
sion tomorrow night.
Mr. Hartkopf said that the officer
pleaded guilty to the charges and had
no excuse to offer for being in the
saloon. That he “overslept” was the
cause of reporting late for duty.
Chief Alexander E. Green declared
that Derbyshire is a good officer and
that the man is sorry for his miscon
duct.

ject of a lecture tomorrow night in
the Madison Avenue School by Rev.
Henry R. Rose, of Newark. The lec
ture is one of the series arranged by
the Board df Education.
A small fire occurred yesterday In

with little difficulty.
The Hilton Improvement Associa
tion will meet tonight in firemen’s

enrolled as savers in the fund. The
only thing we would like to suggest
to the girls is: when you have saved
$60, withdraw the amount from the
savings fund and open a bank ac
count, where you can get 214 per
cent, interest on your money.
“We do not give the girls any in
terest on the money saved, as that
goes for the expenses of the women
who have charge of the savings fund
offices, for the printing of the stamps
and other literature. Instead of
spending your money for candy and
soda water open an account with the
savings fund .and when vacation time
is here vou will be surprised at the
result of your saving.”
The girls at the meeting last night
were very enthusiastic about the
savings fund, and it bids fair to take
hold in this city and rival the main
fund in New York city Miss Smith
announced that any girl who did not
know about the fund and would like
to know, had only to attend the next
“vacation evening," which is open
only to girls, or Miss Kirkpatrick,
who will have charge of the office,
in tho Kinney building, after Febru
ary 16, can give the necessary infor
mation.
GLOVER IS HELD
FOR THE MURDER
OF DE VILLIERS
Abrupt Ending to Los Angeles'
Case Involving Former Pat»
erson Woman.
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 10.—Roy L.
Glover, land agent of San Antonio,
Texas, charged with the murder of
his wife’s former husband, Daniel De
Villiers, soldier of fortune and Boer
war veteran, was held to answer to
the Superior Court at the conclusion
yesterday of a preliminary hearing,
which ended abruptly after a witness
charged that an attempt had been
made to influence him.
The charge alleging an attempt to
use influence wras made by Charles
Spielman, a messenger boy, who ac
companied De Villiers to the home
of his former wife here December 21
last, and who saw the scuffle which
ensued between De Villiers and Glo
ver, when the former tried to force
his way into the house.
Spielman testified concerning the
shots fired and the wounding of De
Villiers, w’ho died soon after in the
Glover residence.
As Spielman stepped from the wit
ness stand he cried out, "They tried
to frame me! They tried to frame
me!" Asked by the judge what he
meant, Spielman said that soon after
De Villiers’s death he had received a
telephonic summons to a saloon and
responding had been met by two
men.
“They asked me what the district
attorney had ever done for me,’’ said
Spielman, “and what favors I ex
pected to get from him. They said:
‘De Villiers is dead. Glover is alive.
What do you w’ant to line up with the
dead ones for.’
“There,” added Spielman, pointing
at a man in the court-room, “is one
of the men who tried to frame me."
A commotion ensued.
The prosecutor said no immediate
action would be taken against the
men accused by Spielman.
Daniel De Villiers was instructor of
the mounted police at Paterson at the
time he eloped with Mrs. Vivian M.
Lewis, daughter of a Paterson bank
er. She left De Villiers in Texas and
afterward went to live with Glover.

Take Salts to flush Kidneys
and neutralize Irritating
acids.
i _
Kidney and Bladder weakness re
sult from uric acid, says a noted au
thority. The kidneys filter this acid
from the blood and pass it onto the
bladder, where it often remains to ir
ritate and inflame, causing a burning,
scalding sensation, or setting up an
Irritation at the neck of the bladder,
obliging you to seek relief two or
three times during the night. The
sufferer is in constant dread, the wa
ter passes sometimes with a scald
ing sensation and is very profuse;
again, there is difficulty in avoid
ing It. . „ „
Bladder weakness, most folks call
It because they can’t control urina
tion. While it 1b extremely annoy
ing and sometimes very painful, this
is really one of the most simple ail
ments to overcome. Get about four
ounces of Jad Salts from your
pharmacist and take a tablespoonful
In a glass of water before breakfast,
continue this for two or three days.
This will neutralize the acids in the
brine so It no longer Is a source of
irritation to the bladder and urinary
organs which then act normally
again. , . .
Jad Salts Is inexpensive, harmless,
and is made from the acid of grapes
and lemon Juice, combined with
llthia, and 1b used by thousands of
folks who are subject to urinary dis
orders caused by uric acid irritation.
Jad Salts Is splendid for kidneys and
causes no bad effects whatever.
Here vou have a pleasant, efferves
cent llthia-water drink, which quick
ly relieves bladder trouble.
“BUTLER-THIEF” IS
Man Who Robbed West Orange
House Charged With An
other Burglary.
George Gunning, who, the police
say, has an international reputation
as a '“society butler thief,” and who
Is under indictment in Essex county
for the alleged theft of jewelry worth
$13,500 from a home In West Orange,
in 1907, is under arrest again.
Gunning, who was arrested in
Philadelphia yesterday, is now being
taken to Portsmouth, N. H.f to
answer the charge of robbing the
home of Mrs. George H. Studebaker
of diamonds worth $20,000, in June,
1912. Only last Saturday, Gunning

Holmesburg, Pa., after serving a
term for stealing diamonds worth $2,
500 from the home of Dr. J. Walter
Freeman. 1832 Spruce street, Phila
delphia, in February, 1907.
Gunning says the proceeds of his
robberies are being used to educate
two little girls he adopted after
saving them from drowning at an
English coast resort. He had just
been discharged from Dartmoor
prison, Gunning says, when the op
portunity came to save the girls, and
since then every cent he has been
able to steal has gone to the educa
tion of his wards, who are in school
in England.
In 1907. Gunning was employed as
a butler in the home of Charles Mor
gan, in Ludington road, West Orange.
Jewelry worth $13,600 and Gunning
disappeared at the same time, and
Chief of Police Bamford, of West Or
| ange, traced Gunning to England.
There he was arrested on a charge
of taking stolen goods into England
and sentenced to six months in jail.
When Gunning was released, he was
extradited and taken to West Or
ange, but the Morgan family de
clined to prosecute him and be was
released.
Gunning is about thirty-eight years
old and says he has been a thief all
his life. He was born in a foundling
asylum, in England, he says, and
the first friend he ever had was a
gypsy, who taught him to steal dia
monds.
The girls he is educating, he says,
know nothing of his thefts, but he
indicated when starting for Ports
mouth that if he is convicted there
he will tell his story to his wards
when he is released.

REFEREE BALKS
BANKRUPT’S PLAN
(Continued from Flrut Pa*re.)
the claims presented by Attorney i
Sheinhart were explained. These
claims which had been allowed in the
first instance, dedtared Hyman, were
fake claims and represented an at- |
tempt by the bankrupt to control the |
election of a trustee.
It was explained that Berkow', the
bankrupt, had retained Charles Elin
when the former was thrown into
bankruptcy last July. Then Berkow
notified a number of his creditors
that Mr. Elin w'ould draw' up their
claims for them, according to the
testimony. It was brought out fur
ther that several of the creditors
holding notes went to Elin's office
and had their claims negotiated by
counsel for the bankrupt.
Questions Bankrupt.
Referee Adams ordered Berkow to j
the stand.
‘ How did you come to send your
creditors to Mr. Elin?" asked the j
court.
“They just came to me and asked
me how about putting in their claims,
so I sent them to him,” answered
Berkow.
The referee forced Berkow to give
a detailed account of his transactions
with half a dozen creditors whose
claims were drawn up in Elin’s office.
The score of law'yers present received
a shock when Mr. Adams turned to
Attorney Elin and ordered him to
take the stand.
Through the examination of the
lawyer, the referee made it plain that
nearly all of the claims voted by
Sheinhart for the Confectioners' Mer
cantile Agency, of New York, had
gone through Elin’s hands, or through
his representatives in his law office.
The bankrupt's counsel was also
asked to explain a number of
erasures which appeared on those
claims.
Attorney Elin stated that he could
not see the mark of the name, which
had been erased. Pressed further he
applied his glasses and admitted he
could discern the name of “Charles”
as one of the matters erased on a
proof of claim. Elin was dismissed
from the stand.
“These claims presented by Mr.
Sheinhart will not be allowed," an
nounced the referee.
Lose Control of Election.
This decision took from Mr. Shein
hart the control of the election of a
trustee. It was brought out that the
claims disputed had been manipu
lated recently for the purpose of se
lecting a trustee favorably inclined
to the bankrupt. One creditor as
serted that the Sheinhart claims were
arranged today in Mr. Elin’s office.
J. Fred Alsgood, attorney for the
Manufacturing Confectioners’ Board
of Trade, New York, nominated Re
ceiver Thomas A. Dobson, of this city,
for trustee. The latter was appointed
by Referee Adams and his bond fixed
at $2,000.
Attorney Alsgood stated that he
has been investigating Berko w’s
bankruptcy matter as well as other
dealers who have large creditors
among the Confectioners’ Board of
Trade.
"It was the first time I ever saw a
referee go after the lawyer in the
case as Mr. Adams did this morn
ing.” said Mr. Alsgood. “If his
methods prevail it will not be long
before we break up .these illicit com
binations and throw some more bank
rupts in Jail.”

Hernman, who shot and killed Mrs,
Charles I. Manning, of this city, and
subsequently took her own life by ad
ministering poison, were held at 4
o'clock yesterday afternoon at the un
dertaking parlors of Gustave Kunz,
Centre street. Orange. Only the par
ents of the girl, an aunt a sister and
her oldest brother were present
Rev. John R. Pratt, pastor of
the Congregational Church, Ver
ona for whom the girl asked as she
lay dying in the Mountainside Hos
pital, Montclair, read the brief ser
vice. A few minutes later her body
was lowered into its last resting
place In Rosedale Cemetery, Orange.
Only members of the family of the
girl and a few curious spectators wit
nessed the interment. The faj"1'!'
went to the undertaking establish
ment and graveyard in an auto.
A tiny pillow of carnations and lilies
bearing the w'ords "Our Daughter
was the only floral piece on the coffin.
The inscription was in immortelles.
It was left at the head of the grave.
The family remained at the cemetery
only long enough to see the coffin
lowered to the bottom of the grave.
There was no inkling of the time
when the services were to be held
previous to the arrival of the clergy
man, and only newspaper men were
near the undertaking parlors when
the casket was carried to the hearse,
which was left standing in William
street.
It was originally planned to have
the services at the home of the girl s
familv, but this was advised against
because of the fear of curiosity-seek
ers appearing in too large numbers.

Advisory Committee Decide?
Not to Insist on Imhoff '
Sewer Ordinance.
Following a discussion of Mayor
Frank J. Murray's veto of the or
dinance passed last year by the Or
ange Common Council authorizing
the city to Join with East Orange
and Montclair in building an Imhoff
tank system of sewage disposal at
Belleville, the advisory committee of
citizens, which has for years been
considered the sewage problems, and
advised unanimously the Imhoff plan,
decided last night to recommend that
the council on Monday night allow
the mayor’s veto to kill the ordi
nance.
This action, however, does not in
dicate the advisory committee has
dropped the ImhofT idea, but was in
deference to the judgment expressed
that the ordinance would not stand,
even if enough votes were secured to
override the mayor’s veto, as the
bond lawyers Insist a measure to be
binding must be introduced and final
ly passed within the calendar year.
Mayor Murray, who was present at
the session, took up criticisms of hia
veto at a meeting of the advisory
committee last week, and he gave ant
earnest argument to illustrate his ef
forts to secure all the light possible
upon the big problem before the city.
That he stands alone as executive in
assuming responsibility fpr placing
life in an ordinance he outlined
plainly, and he also gave an interest
ing prophecy, based upon his study of
the members of the present Legisla
ture, and the votes on legislation
offered that w'ould prove hostile to an
independent scheme for Orange, East
Orange and Montclair.
Imparts the
finishing touch
of elegance to
the correctly
served meal.
