SWINDLES MANY Mrs. Charlotte Schenck, of the River road, Highland Park, is one of a number of people in Highland Park and this city who have been swindled by a canvasser who represents that he is agent for ail kinds of newspapers. Mrs. Schenck wrote to the Xew York Journal a few days ago to ask why a set of fifty dish es which she was to get as a premium, did not come, and jt vas this letter which showed up the swindler. W. P. lietts, of the Journal ofhee, was in town to-day trying to get trace of the agent. The fellow's scheme was to go to a house and ask what newspaper was taken. Mrs. Schenck took the dourna. He told her that if she would renew her subscription for a year he would deliver a set of fifty dishes to her house. He only wanted 50 cents paid down. Where he found a house where no paper w'as taken he offered a year',; subscription and the dishes for $1 down. He carries samples of the dishes with hiin. The fellow wore an Elks' button and appeared to be about 40 years of age. It is believed he picked up many dollars m this vicinity. LOOKS LIKE W00LLEY FOR CONGRESS TO-MORROW Local Democratic leaders still say that from this distance It looks as if B. Drummond Woolley, of Ixmg Branch, will be named for Congress to-morrow at the convention in Red Bank. Middlesex, it is said, has practically waived its right to name the candidate. As Monmouth is to have the congres- ional candidate. Middlesex will have the honor of naming the permanent chairman. It is probable that George A. Vieh-mann, of this city, chairman of the convention of two years ago, will again get the honor. TALK OF WILLIAM H. PRICE FOR COUNTY CLERK There was talk among Democrats to day of William H. Price, of this city, for County Clerk. The field has consid erably narrowed In litis contest.

Little Clara Payton, a bright eyed rosy cheeked girl of two, daughter of Mrs. Mary Payton, of Talmnge street, near Commercial avenue, was playing in her yard yesterday afternoon, sitting over a twenty-five feet deep well, which had a covering of loose boards. She shifted a board and went splash into the well. Her four year old brother, Vreeland, was near by and he realized that something awful had happened and he danced around so lively that Mrs. Julia Pollon, who lives near, thought that the boy had dropped a toy into the well and came over to see if rtie could help get it. (azing down into the well she saw the white skirts of the baby. "tome quick, Mrs. Payton. baby's in the well," she screamed. Mrs. Pavton screamed. Mrs. Andrew Acker ran out of her house screaming. Mrs. Henry Richie joined in the chorus of the fright ened women. That brought all of the men in the neighborhood running to the spot. YA ilham Acker stuck a pole down into the well and told the baby to set hold of it. She did. Then Andrew Acker arrived with a ladder. It wasn't long enough. John Broxmeyer brought a ladder and it was lowered. William Acker and John Broxmeyer held the ladder while Andrew Acker climbed down into the water and brought the baby up. The child was wet and choking with water. After a fit of coughing the child look ed around and said: "I guess I got the whooping cough." They asked her how she had keiit on the top of the water. The little tot proudly answered: "I swim." Ihen she climbed upon a bed arid kicked with her feet and shook her hands to show how she had swam.

S26-tf STRANGE NOISES AT HIGH SCHOOL Putting Up, the New Fire Escape Neces-. sitates a Great Racket in the Building. The school' routine at the High School has been a little upset for a couple of days by the noise made by the workmen who are putting up the new "down and out" Are escape. The escape Is made of sheet iron anid came here in eiitions, which are riveted as they are put up. The nolne of sledge hammers on sheet Iron U not particularly conducive to undisturbed study. In the rooms closest to the escape, the teachers have hard work to make the pupils hear them while the pounding is going on. William Archer, representing the Dow Wire and Iron Works, of Louisville, Ky., i putting up the escape. It is a long, upright tube at the back of the school building. It Is six feet In diameter and contains a spiral slide, down which pupils can puss safely and quickly In case of fire. There are entrances to the tube from the second and third floors. Even without the new equipment the High School building Is said to be one of the safest of its kind in the State, owing to its numerous exits. At a recent fire test it was found that the total time it took for every person to leave the building was a minute and a half. With the installation of the lire alarm gongs In the lower corridors and main auditorium, and push buttons in every class room, together with the new escape the building is as near perfectly safe as it is possible to make it. The new escape will probably be ready for a test In about two weeks. TOOK A BEER,- THEN SAILED AWAY Chi.f Justice Beasley's Grand Son Weds School Teacher Surreptitiously. The filing of a certificate made public to-day the information that Fenton Mercer Beasley and Miss Evelyn Beer were made man and wife in Jersey City Thursday, September 16. Ihe groom is a son of Chauncey II. Beasley and a grandson of the late Chief Justice Beas ley of the New Jersey Supreme Court, and the bride formerly taught school in Caldwell. Although Justice of the Peace James H. vreeland, who performed the cere mony is said to have, been requested to keep the fact secret for at least a month his efforts in that direction werenulli fled by his filing of the record. It is said that on the above mentioned date Mr. Vreeland was summoned by telephone to a New York hotel on what was said to be a most important mat ter. He went there and found young Beasley and his prospective bride, as well as several relatives of the young couple. When he was asked to perform the ceremony the justice had to explain that he was not authorized to exercise the prerogatives of his office 1 outside of New Jersey, and the whole party repaired to Jersey City, where the ceremony is said to have been performed in a law ver's office. It is said that after the young people were united the bride returned to the home of her parents, and it is believed that the groom shortly afterward sailed for a foreign port. Justice reelana would not discuss this feature of the story, and the groom's father was out of town to-day. WITH THE FIREMEN BEFORE THE PARADE Lieutenant Henry Lnndahl of Com pany H, is drilling the members of Washington Engine Company for the parade, and Foreman Morris Bauer is drilling the members of Phoenix Engine Comnanv.

KEYSTONES WILL BOWL THIS YEAR IN THE AMERICAN NATIONAL TOURNAMENT AND METROPOLITAN CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES. Rector's restaurant, New York, last night was the scene of a gathering that should go a long way toward, further cementing the friendship that exists between the bowlers of the !reater New York and the bowlers of New Brunswick. The occasion referred to was a dinner, the result of a, friendly match rolled last season between the Fidelia Bowling Club, of New York, and the Keystone Bowling Club, of New Brunswick. Chas. A. McCormick, captain of the Keystone Club, was appointed toastmaster and so well did he attend to his duties that not a single guest at the table escaped until he had provided his share of the entertainment. The menu could not be surpassed, and it is pretty safe to say that no aggregation of bowling enthusiasts ever sat down to a better repast. The speeches were bright, witty and full of repartee, showing what friendly feeling exists be tween the fraternity. It is probable that one of the outcomes of last night's gathering will be a four cornered match between three of the oldest clubs in New York, namely the Fidelia, Spartan and Rosedale clubs, and the Keystones. Among those present last night were the following: Fred. Schwartie, of the Rosedale Club, who has just returned from a trip to liermany, where he won the Herman American championship at howling; P, J. Riddcll, the head of the construction department of the Brunswicke-Balke Collender Co.; John Koster, William Rothermel, Chas. Luhrs and Chess Du mas, of the Fidelia Club; Edward H. Ra del, Chas. A. McCormick, Wm. E. Sper ling, Jr., J. L. Carberry, alter Burton Charles Greenewald, Mr. Wilson, Mr, Smith and L. C. Stevens, of this city. The Keystones will begin its season soon. This year it will bowl in the American National Tournament and in the Metropolitan championship series. These' last games will be rolled by the the teams winning the various tourna nients in New York last season. The Keystones won the Broadway tourna ment and consequently its home alleys in the championship contest this year will be the Broadway alleys at Broad way and 42d street. The winners of this series will be entitled to the champion ship of Greater New York. The . American National Tournament games will he rolled on Thum's White Elephant alleys, Broadway and 31st street, New xork. 1 he Keystones will also roll some games here at the Bruns wick Cafe alleys- The Keystones' schedule for the American National Tourna-mentment is as follows, two games be ing plaved a night: Wednesday, Oct. 5 Belvidere and Phoenix.

PERTH AM BOY, Sept. 30. The Perth Amboy Board of Water Commissioners have decided to make another attempt to secure from the Freeholders the privi lege of laying a water main in Bridge street, the thoroughfare leading from the istvw Kan tan river bridge. . engineer K. J. Mason will now pre pare a blue print of the route which it Is desired to follow in laying the main That, with a humble petition, will be presented to the board, next Wednesday, at Its October meeting. The commission ers are hoping that the Freeholders will grant their request, with proper restric tions. The water board is at present discuss. Ing ways nnd means of securing the necessary funds to build the reservoir for which plans have been drawn and site secured. Improvements have been going forward at such a pace that th city is now bonded for twelve per cent of its assessed . valuation, and it is ar gued that bonds issued in excess of that proportion will be sold with difficulty President Patrick Convery last night reported that a thoroughly reliable offer had been made h:m as a representative of the city by a capitalist who wishes to buy the city's water plant and will pay S, 000,000 for it. The proposition was greeted with a laugn, m wnicn Mr. Converv joined.

Willard P. Voofllees, counsel for H. S. Kerbajigh, (Inc.), and C. T- Cowen hoven, counsel for Thomas Ahearn, of Railroad avenue, argued this morning in the District Court a rule to show cause why a new trial should not be granted in . the. case ot Abeai;n vs. Kerbau; When this case was first tried last sum mer a jury gave a verdict of $30 dam ages to the plaintiff. Mr. Ahearn claim ed that a ditch dug by Kerbaugh's men in the course of their excavation work here had been permitted to overflow on Easter Sunday. The contractor had a pump in the ditch to keep it empty, but neglected to keep it going on that par ticular day. Mr. Voorhees in the argument this morning held that Kerbaugh was not obliged to drain the ditch, in fact that he had the right to do whatever he chose with the property under his con trol and that the overflow was due to circumstances over which the contractor had no control. Judge Cowenhoven held that the con tractor had diverted the course of a nat ural stream of water, forcing it over so that it entered Mr. Ahearn's cellar and ruined the floor thereof. After the argument both sides sub mitted authorities to the court and de cision on the rule will be given later. Other Cases. A jury case of Hughes vs. Shapiro was started this morning, a chattel mort gage being involved. It turned out that the case turned on a question of law rather than of facts so the jury "was discharged and the case will be submit ted in briefs. In the case of Flood vs. Hamer on eon- tract, a judgment of $13.50 was given the plaint ill . In the case of Stout vs. Shannon the plaintiff submitted to a voluntary non suit, his principal witness not being able to get here. In the case of the Lynn Paper Co. vs Louis Schwartz, a verdict of $11.92 and costs was given the plaintiff.

IT ML TIE A REST Copper and Trolley Manager to Relinquish His Varied Business Activities. PERTH AMBOY, Sept. 30. Although, so far as can be learned no official notice has been issued to that effect, those in a position to know say that James C. McCoy has severed his connection with the liaritan Copper Works. The date set for his retirement is very near, probably October 1. It is claimed that, to all intents and purposes, Mr. McCoy laid aside his duties a week or two ago, although he has since been here ajid at the works. The one reason given for this step is Mr. McCoy's desire to retire, at least for a time, from active part in the business world in which he has for years figured conspicuously, and rest. Certain ambitions which he cherished have been gratified. Goals at which he aimed have been reached and he feels that he is entitled to a period for recuperation which would be impossible should he retain so important a position as that which he held with the Lewisohn interests. Since Perth Amboy has known anything of these they have been represented by Mr. McCoy. He was secretary of the corporation, the Raritnn Copper Works, and general manager of the 70-acre plant in this city. From the very beginning he has shown marked interest in local affairs and his part in connection with the trolley, the trust company and the library are well known. He formed the Raritan Traction Company and saw It become the best equipped that extensive travelers have ever known. It was readily admitted that his part in the trust company affairs made him the one man to first fill the presidency and to a great - extent his generosity secured to the city a site for the Carnegie library and made possible the prompt acceptance of the great ironmaster's gift of $20,000. Slr. McCoy made a great deal of money also in real estate deals in Perth Amboy. It is understood that Mr. McCoy has been succeeded in charge of the copper works by A. Clayton Clark, who has been identified prominently with the management of the plant since its construction. Mr. McCoy recently returned from Europe, where he took his own automobile and chauffeur. He lives at the old Coudert place, Metuchen. Mr. McCoy has been with the Copper Works since it was started as a little factory in Pawtucket, R. I., by the Iwisohn Brothers, who at that time were m the business of manufacturina silk hats. He helped work the plant up to its present position, that of the larg est copper refinery in the world and one of the largest smelters in the United States. The trip to Europe was his first vacation in many years. NEWS AND NOTES. -The K. O. K. A. will hold a meeting in the Y. M. C. A. building to-niuht. Edwin A.
