The first tournament of the season of the New Brunswick Golf Club was held Satur- dav afternoon on the links on Livingston avenue.

MONLIAT, Sept SO. — In tbe Court of Common Pleas this morn'ng an Important decision, affecting the method of appealing from 6 justice's court diclsion was ren dered. The Bta'u'e is somewhat confused ami tl is decision does much to clear up tbe mi tbod 01" procedure Tbe case was that ot Fre- nun vs. Jones Judgment w-ae ren- deied In tbe lower court !n favor ol F-ee- insu. Jonis appealed, bu' did rot clve tbe just ce notice ol his lute lion to appml. Mr. Freeman's counsel, George Sllrer. moved to strike the case Irom the list, as it had not ti-tu properly notlcrd.

J., MONDAY EVENING, SEPT. 30, 1895 MISS HOGARTY INDICTED. A Rumor That the Grand Jury Has Pqund a True Bill Against Her. It was rumored today that the Grand Jury had indicted Mies Mamie Hogarty for complicity In the recent attempt to break jail. The Grand Jury resumed Its sessions this morning, intending to complete its work and then adjourn. It was expected that the list of| Indictments would be handed to the court this afternoon. No confirmation of the rumor as to Miss Hoparty'g indictment could be secured as every efficial on being questioned, closed up once tighter than an oyster. If the girl has been Indicted she must stand trial on her indictment in spite of her discharge by Recorder Harklns. The statement that she has been Indicted has caused the greatest excitement among those who believe her Innocent. S. B 8. BE PLIES. He Replies Forcibly to Alderman Richardson's Letter. To the Editor of tbe TIMES : DEA.B SIR — I am very sorry that the pressure of Saturday's busluess prevented me from replying immediately to Alderman Richardson's attempt at self justification, although the tone of his article is such as to f-rlt only contempt I still do not think it should be passedlu silence. His introduction ID which he states that I should have ustd only two Initials In signing my letter is either potntlr&B or Indecent. He has written himself down an ass or worse. As might be expected a communication in sOch a manner contains very little of argument or caramon etnae. He admits my chare-" that be, claiming to represent tbe poor committee of Common Council has filed with the Overseer of tbe Poor a list of bus! tieee men rfho are to receive the city patronage. It IB this assumption of superior power that is complained of. If tbe Overseer of tbe Poor IB Appointed and paid to do certain work according to bis best judgment what right has Alderman Richardson to interfere ? II Alderman Richardson is to do the work why should the Overseer of the Poor be paid If the Richardson method were to become populaMzi-d here we might see Alderman Helm, as chairman of the Finance Committee, col'ectlhg taxes for City Collector Price or assuming charge of the municipal funds, thinking himself better able to do that than City Treasurer Neilson. We would see the chairman of the Police Committee directing what arrt-Bts should be made, while the Streets and Koads Committee would serve upon Street Commissioner Hagerman a list of contractors whose bide for sewerage should be tbe only ones considered. Richardson's action Is doubly wrong. He cannot defend H even on the ground that "to the victors belong the spoils," and that as a Republican member of a Republican board he has a right to distribute patronage. If he is capable of koowiug anything he knows that he owes his slight prominence to an accident In which a saloon bar, a Republican postmaster and a a loaded penny figured. Common Council is equally divided politically and his assumption of authority is as audacious, unwarranted and impudent as It-is rldlculons. No one but a callow and rather young Alderman having his first taste of political preferment would think of making it. 80 much for that part, as lor his list of coal dealers which he puts forth with so much apparent pride. I need only call attention 'o the fact that of the seven, six are Republican firms. If this is only a coincidence it is a peculiar one falling in BO cicely as It does with my charges. Alderman Richardson works in a rubber faciory, but be considers himself able to ruu the entire city government. His strong point U In taking care of the poor. He meddles with tbe work of tbe City Physician and so ruatiRgeB Indirectly to have some connection with bringing the children of the poor Into this world. With his little partisan list of proceiy stores and shoe shops be feeds them tiDd cloUiis tbi-m ; when they are sick it IB lo Aldertuan RichHrdsou's friends in the drug business they go for their medici'e, and wbeu they finally die this noble Alderman bus all rea^y a Republican undertaker to lay them away. Ii certsinly is a grand scheme and shows what a wonderful man is this First, ward Reformer. Els specialties seem to be looking after the poor and making jokes that are weak or worse. B. B. 8. PRESERVE THE PAVEMENTS. An Ordinance Wanted to Prevent their Destruction. The Street Commissioner is now engaged in repairing the pavement on George street. It is discovered that nearly all the work be IB required to do has been caused by the bad work of plumbers who have torn up the pavement to Introduce city water to various premises. Every year our street pavtmects art- destroyed by the reckless carelessness of plumbers, who never put back in a work- maullUe manner the street pavements which tin y tear up One nf the crying needs of this city Is the j'asfHgf of Btt oriliiiMUce that will prt-ve i lie (ipri.ing ol the sire t pavements except t>y p. rmi-cUin of tha Street Commissioner will require thht anyone who obtains pi'i mlsclon shall be rf quired to put tte turLis back In proper condition under H 'hat can be enfi reed and which will be sufficient to pay for tbe repair of any damage that may result from any Lv- glect o r disteturd of tnis ordinance Ciiiight a Burglar. On Saturday afternoon Michael Concannon was tending bar In McQougb's saloon He heard a burglar climb Imo the rear window of Fretetjolder McFadden's house. Mickey followed bis pistol In bis hand and his knife between bis teeth. He Tracked the burglar to an upstairs room. It turned out to be the Freeholder's son who had forgotten hts key and had climbed In the window. All the rest of the afternoon the drinks were on Mickey. -^»^ Captains Give Bail.

New Orders Under Whloh the Fire Department Will Work. Fire Department Chief Charles Greenewald has arranged a new schedule under which the local fire companies will respond to alarms. The schedule goes Into effect today and will be temporary, the new ad. lustment Is necessitated by the retirement from commission of Phoenix Engine Com pany and Rarltan Company. Phoenix Engine Company loaves tomorrow for a visit to Reading, Pa-, while Baritan's machine is being repainted and repaired in anticipation of visit to Rahway early In October. The temporary retirement of two such valuable companies, of course, makes a reorganization necessary. This reorganization has been affected by the following order: RBDI6TRICTION. Beginning with Monday September, 30, companies will respond to alarms from the various boxes according to tbe following schedule : First Second District Box No. Alarm Alarm Covered by 27 1—2 5 6 29 1—2—5 6 6 36 1—2—5 6 6 88 1—2—5 6 6 45 ' 1—2—5 6 6 47 1—2—5 6 6 49 1-5 2 . 6 56 1—2 5 6 58 1—2 5 6 63 1—2 5 5 65 1—2 5 6 67 1—2 5 6 73 2—5 1 6 75 2—5 1 1 82 2—5 6 1 84- 2—5 6 1 86 5—6 2 1 93 5—6 2 1 96 S—6 2 1 98 5-6 2 1 Liberty Hose Company and Hook and Ladder will respond to all alarms. Phoenix Hose Company will rt spend to the following boxes : Nos. 27, 29, 36, 45, 47, 49, 56, on first alarm ; 67, 73, 75, 98, 96 and 98 on second alarm. Rarltan (temporary wagon) will respond to tbe following boxes on first alarm : Ncs. 58, 63, 65, 67, 73 ; and to 27, 29, 36, 75 on second alarm. The above schedule goes Into effect Monday, Sept. 30, '95, and will remain In operation until further notice. CHAKLBS GBBBNEWALD, - Engineer. THE NEW REGISTRY. The Ballot Reform Law as Tinkered by the Republican Legislature. The ballot Reform law was based upon the theory that the State would manage the elections, Instead of the politicians. On that theory it permitted nominations by petition ; furnished the voter with each form of ballot nominated ; required the election officers to make the registry from personal observation and knowlsdge ; kept the politicians away from the polle ; and made It as easy as possible for the honest voter to poll hts ballot Last year's Republican Legislature changed all this. By a supplement to the Election laws (laws of 1894, page 659), it provided that in cities of over 40,000 inhabitants, the registry officers should not make the house-to- house canvass, and should not copy the known names of the previous registry, but should register the names 9t only such per- persons as should appear before them In person, or be credited to by the affidavit of a legal voter. There are restrictions thrown around this registration by affidavit which makes It very difficult to accomplish. The registry boards are required to meet in such cities on Oct. 1,8, 15 and at one of these meetings every person who desires t<* vote mast register his name. Every citizen^should assure himself that bis name is on the registry of his precinct, and be can charge his added trouble and annoyance to the Republican Legislature that passed the annoying law. SURROGATE'S BUSINESS. Wills Proved and Letters Testamentary Granted.During September. During the month of September at Surrogate Furman's office, letters testamentary were issued and wills probated as follows : LBTTKB8 TESTAMENTARY QRAHTED. On the estate of Mary Greason, to George W.

Sternberg & Company the popular clothiers of Newark, bavitg opened a branch of of their busiuets in this city at 9 Church street, it was crowded to the doors Saturday evenltig by former patrons and future cus tomers, and judgli g from the enormous piles of otto grade clothing coupled with attraC' tive prlct j their success seems assured. The window display was specially attractive containing the finest garments to be seen in this city and reflects great credit on the taste and ability of Mr. Marks, tbe local manager and bis assistants. Mr. Marks is no stranger here having already established an enviable reputation for himself In tbe clothing trade In this city having successfully managed the branch for tbe Sherman Clothing Company but severed his connec tlon with It to conduct the business ol Sternberg & Company, who Is better equipped for the manufacture and sale of high grade ready made clothing at popular prices, it seems safe to assume that Sternberg & Company have come to stay. Opening the Social Season. What promises to be the most successful affair of the season will be held in Parochial Hall, Suydam street on next Friday evening Oct. 4. Music will be furnished by Messrs. Garland, Hart and Bartow. The hall will be brilliantly Illuminated and tbe whole interior will be decorated with a liberal display of palms and plants by Kltchenmeister.

The singing by the Colored Creole Quartette was very fine and the leader U a real artist. INTER-STATE FAIR WEEK, When the Politicians Will Gather at Trenton. GRIGGS AND HIS MANAGERS Will be on Hand to do All He Can tor Himself Among tbe Farmers He Can Get to Listen to Him. TKHNTON, Sept. 29.—This Is the beginning of the Trenton Fair week, which brings together more hayseed politicians than a circus, especially on Thursday, which, for some unknown reason, Is tbe "holy Thursday" of all Jersey politicians the fair-world over. Gubernatorial candidate Griggs will, of course, be here, and so will his two guardians, Senators Sewell and Hobart, of Paterson. But tbe Democratic candidate will appear neither at fairs nor on the stump. That was well understood before Chancellor McGlll's nomination, which was pretty generally discounted over a month before it was made. It was also well understood that the Chancellor would not and should not resign his judltial office until ready to assume the duties of the Governorship. Judge Bedle In 1874, Judge Dlxon in 1883, and Judge Werts in 1892 qul- tly continued ou the Supreme Court bench, although they were running for the Governorship also. It was neither dignity nor being afraid, "but simply the gross Impropriety of leaving unfinished suits and suitors In the lurch. Much more so with the Chancellor, whose complicated equity jurisdiction, as every lawyer yer comprehends, cannot be dropped at a moment's notice without confusion to the Interested patles. The convention of last Thursday, enthusiastic but not boisterous, reminded one oi the old time gatherings when the Randolphs, Parkers and Stocktons used to be at the head of the Democratic party. There was in fact a considerable sprinkling among the delegates of the old war horses, who were active In politics years ago. Above all, everybody had a very cheerful view of the political situation. Even our old friend, ex-Senator John Carpenter, tbe editor of the Clinton Democrat, and once of the New Brunswick TIMKS, who threatened In his connty caucus to smash things if " Farmer " Gus Cutler was not nominated, enthused with the loudest over McGlll and thought after all that everything was well that ends well. The makeup of tbe convention, not less than the nomination, showed how completely the old Influences, which used to be so potent a few years ago, had been supplanted. Chairman McDermott's disappearance from tbe head of tbe State committee was only another evidence of this. Bat the "angels" won't run eilber the Democratic or Griergs' campaign for all that. And by the way, that was rather a cruel parting shot at Griggs from McDermott. The latter in the opening speech calling the committee to order, thanked the Republican venvention of a week previous for giving him a character,"for they nominated my fellow counsel, Mr. Griggs" in the defence of the race track cases of a few years ago. And then again, referring to Griggs at- attempt to go back on his record, while in \he State Senate, as chief mover In the Republican option Legislation of seven years ago, McDermott dryly observed that the trouble with Griggs is he doesn't know whether be has got prohibition or delerlum tremens. That shot was directed against the Republican candidates' present hedging attitude, protesting that he never was a loc.al op'ion- ist'and only pushed the Legislation at Senator Sewell's command. For all that the Democrats do not Intend to make tbe liquor question an issue, and do not mention Jt in their platform. The Democratic Legislature of 1889 settled that satisfactorily, and it will remain settled until the Republican legislators open it again by command from higher sources. Chancellor McGill will not take an active stumping part in the campaign, but when he formally accepts the nomination on Wednesday he undoubtedly, in the vigorous and terse English for which he ia noted, will give a pretty good send-off for his party. It is safe to predict that he will not pass by National isssues, like his Republieon com petitor, for they are very much involved in this year's election, which may decide which way New Jersey is to vote next year in the Presidential contest. He may also be trusted to give some mighty interesting reading on the water-syndicate Issue, and railroad taxation, and corporation Influence generally. OKAT. SuicMe at Tnnton.

John Snydam, who is 21 years of age and ives at Wes ton's Mills, was her ardent ad- mlrer. He worked on one of Collier's ice wagons and his prospects were not of the best so that while Mr. Miller did not object to his calling he certainly did not look with favor upon th« marriage of his daughter to Suydam.

The German voters In the coming election bold the balance of power and are In a position to protect the State of New Jersey against a great deal of oppression. The Republican candidate for Governor, Lawyer Griggs, of Paterson, showed In 1888 as a member of the Senate In an unquestionable way what he Is made of. Three charscter- Istlcs are shown In his fight for the local- option and high-license law, and these should make hia election as Governor of New Jersey Impossible In the eyes of every flerman of whatever political faction be supports. Being a temperance man of high degree, a man Influenced by big corporations and also opposed to tbe Germans, he should not be entitled to any share of consideration by the Germans. A politician who does not respect the liberal principles of our Cons itu- tlon should not get a single German vote. Now Is the time that the German voter can make himself felt and prohibit that the man who will give his signature to laws contrary to tbe Interest of the German shall be placed at tbe bead of the Government. The personal liberty and tbe claim of tbe Germans to be acknowledged as a respectable element la at stake. Grlggs Is not the man from whom we could expect any kind of consideration In these respects. He should not, under any clrcnmstances, exist for the German voter as a candidate for Governor. Sayrerille Items.
