West Orange Executive Refers
4 * to Rumor of Commission
i * Rule Agitation.
Mayor Famham Yardlev, of West
Orange, in a statement today ueclored
his belief that voters of the town
will defeat a plan to oust the present
Fusion officials by adopting commis
sion government. Tho tusion lend
ers have been informed that the
Democrats, who were defeated at
the last election, are behind the com
■ mission government scheme, but tip
to the present time the Fusion folks
arc the only ones who are encourag
ing the commission government talk.
The mayor, in his statement, makes
no comment upon the story, likewise
> made public by the Fusion leaders,
that he is to retire at tiie dose of
, *hc present year. Mayor Yardley’s
formal statement on the commission
idea follows:
"Tho mayor said that he had heard
that petitions were being quietly cir
culated for signatures in order that
a special election might be held to
decide whether or not the voters
wished the form of town government
ehange.d to government by a hoard of
"Mr. Tardley stated that lie had ex
pected just such a move, which was.
of course, made in the interests of
the ousted officeholders, and again
,, tho fact was demonstrated that the
Democrats (who were now in tho
minority), were poor losers, and sad
ly in need of real leaders who could
give them good advice.
“The mayor was of the opinion
that the town would vote against the
commission form of government, and
that the voters would resent, very
much, the expense of a special ‘ lec
tion. He said that now that, there
was a change in the governing body
“f the town, he believed the citizens
were willing to give the new coun
cil a fair show and allow them an
opportunity to display their fitness
for running the town.”
The mayor today also made public
the list of men suggested by the Town
Council members for a citizens' "na
tional preparedness" committee,
whom he has asked to serve with Dr.
Samuel A. Muta, chairman. The list
k includes the following: William F.

Legality of Bankruptcy
That the liquor license held by Her
man H. A. Schmidt, former owner of
Olympic Park, Irvington, had a value
of $1,000, in his opinion, was the testi
mony of Henry A. Guenther, superin
tendent of the Home Brewing Com
pany. at a hearing today on Schmidt's
application to transfer the license and
on the objections of Christian Kurz,
the present proprietor of Olympic
Park. The hearing was held before
Judge Martin in the Court of Com
mon Pleas and was adjourned till to
The Home Brewing Company pur
chased Schmidt's assets, including the
license, according to Mr. Guenther, at
n bankruptcy sale. The purchaser as
signed the property to Kurz. who is
now seeking to have the license in
Schmidt's name transferred to him.
Schmidt cioinis the license is a per
sonal privilege and eould not bo sold
by his trustee in bankruptcy. De
claring that it is still his property,
he has asked the court to transfer it
to another location in South Orange
The first point to be decided by the
court will be whether the license had
a value in money, and if so whether
it could be sold. To do this the
hearing was hild today and Guenther
was called as a witness hy Hoy F.
Anthony, attorney for Kurz. Mr.
Guenther said lie paid $2,0ft0 for
Schmidt's personal property on the
Olympic Park premises, including
barroom fixtures, liquor and, as lie
thought, the license.
Outside of the license the property
he bought was not worth more than
$1,00, he said, and in this manner
he fixed the value of the license Ht
the remaining thousand. If he had
thought he would be unable to get
the license he would not have pur
chased the property at any price, he
Guenther testified that, at first, the
trustee in bankruptcy, Alfred Van
I.lew, expressed doubts us to his right
to sell the license, but finally included
it in the bill of sale to the Home
Brewing Company.
Spaulding Frazer, counsel for
Schmidt, said he wanted to call the
trustee to testify tomorrow. Judge
Martin announced the hearing of
other objections to the transfer, such
as the objection of citizens in the
locality to which Schmidt wants the
transfer, Heidelberg Park, would be
put off until after the legal questions
have been disposed of.

New $20,000 Signal System
Fails to Serve Purpose
in East Orange.
Discovery late last night that the
sneak thief who is supposed to have

the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Clifford

ICast Orange, Christinas evening, ef
fected entrance to three more homes
in the city occasioned considerable
(excitement in the eastern part of the
municipality. The turmoil whs not

few residents in the locality were
aware that the robber was operating
again until Lieutenant Henry .1. Hec

with patrolmen in the section.
There is a $30,000 signal system at
headquarters, which is supposed to
enable desk men at the station house
to get in touch with patrolmen on
tile streets in a jiffy, but the affair
failed miserably to serve its purpose
last night, as it was estimated that
fifteen minutes elapsed before the
men responded to the screeching of
the sirens and tho flashing of the red
lights that are on poles at different
street corners.

before the men on the streets, as the
residents began 'phoning to head
quarters. complaining about the in
terruption of their slumbers.
It happened that the lone reserve

was far away from headquarters in
vestigating one of the- thief’s visits
at the residence of George A, Strahan
of 226 Newfield street, when a second
resident. Fred W. Coleman, of 90
North Eighteenth street, arrived home
to find that the thief had paid him a
j call.
He promptly called headquarters
i for a man, and when Lieutenant
Hector was unable to get a patrolman
by Hashing tho red lights he set the
sirens in operation. Even the blast
ing of these failed to attract the at

to Main street, and blew out all the
wind in his lungs trying to summon
a blucroat. Finally Sergeant Charles
White heard the sirens going, and he
called in. Ho was sent to the Eigh
teenth street home. Recorder Nott,
who was hurrying home from Hloom

information that he could plainly hear
the tooting of the horns even where

trolmen responded to the calls. One
of them said he heard the sirens, but
thought it was tho horn on an auto.
When ttie flurry had subsided It
was discovered that the thief's visits
had netted him small loot. One house
he entered, that of E. ,T. Sears, of 26'J

nothing. Ho got a revolver at tin

It was plain that the thief was the
same one who robbed the Eagle home
Christmas evening, as lie got into tlm
other houses the identical way that
led him to his find in Mrs. Eagle’s
bedroom. He goes on the stoop of a
house he thinks is vacant, and after
receiving no response to constant
ringing of the doorbell, removes the
glass near the look on the1 front door
and begins his looting. All of the
houses he got into last night were
temporarily unoccupied. He got Into
