NEW BRUNSWICK, ff.'J., TFIURSDAY AFTERNOON, JUNE 9, 1904. TWO CENTS iiOMB OAIB 11 HE y FDR VALENTINE One of the Defaulter's Victims Calls for His Punishment. REVIEWS THE HISTORY OF VALENTINECLAIMS THAT HE STOLE FOX SIX YEARS HE HAD NO SYMPATHY FOR HIS VICTIMS. ' To the Editor of the Home News: It is with some satisfaction that the ' unfortunate depositors of the defunct Middlesex County Bank read your paper as to the punishment of thut bank thief, who did not have even the excuse of poverty " for his sneak thieving, and who reached out his fingers like the tentacles of a devil-fish, in every possible direction, to steal from. He stole from the rich and the poor, the widow and the orphan, the wage-earner and the Hewing girl, from those who curtailed the neces-cities of life that they might have in their old age or in sickness a source from which to relieve their wants; that he might squander his stealings in gambling, doing up the Tenderlon and speculating in stocks; if he made a profit, to go into his own pocket; if he lost, those from whom he stole, to bear it, not to mention the amount spent on oostly diamonds which will no doubt descend as family heirlooms. It is hard to believe that this fellow, with his gigantic stealings, has not got in hiding a large amount of his plunder. Valentine, from all sources, stole in the neighborhood of three hundred and twenty thousand dollars, namely: lie stole from the Middlesex County Bank, as shown by the Heceiver's report, gome two hundred, and sixty-five thousand dollars. lie stole from the Savings Bank some thirty thousand dollars. , Me stole !, from Bviegs, whose assignee he was, an amount supposed (as he kept no account) to be some twenty thousand dollars, if.not more, he also had his thieving fingers in a building loan to an amount hard to ascertain. He forged Brieg's name to a note or fifteen hundred dollars (no indictment.) This robber, who got loose on Perth Arnboy, stole, forged, falsified accounts, made false statements and swore that they were right to deceive the public and the Banking Department. He had no mercy on any one. He commenced his criminal career as soon as he entered the bank, and continued it for six long years. The first year that he was in the bank he stole over seven thousand dollars, five thousand of which was in cold rash in on haul. He left wreckage, ruin and financial disaster in his wake, which has not as yet been recovered from. And when thi rascal comes cringing before the court and begs for mercy can he not be met with the inquiry! '"What mercy did you show to those who so foolishly trusted you and whom you unmercifully robbed?" "What mercy did you have for the poor and unfortunate from whom you so heartlessly stole? What consideration did you have for those directors, whose confidence you .betrayed ana who ou ruined and in whose faces you laughed as you told the story of your base crimes on the witness stand at Newark ?" Valentine for all these crimes has served a term in State Prison of only four years and eight months (the hard labor part of which Is amusing). Think of it. Judge Strong a short time ago sentenced a man, who was so unfortunate as not to have any one to express a maudlin sympathy for hm, to a term in the same prison of five yearg for stealing a horse worth seventy-five dollars. Valentine's crime was wide-reaching and disastrous to the public and involved loss to many, (Continued on Page Two.) RUMORS AFLOATABOUT GEORGE M. VALENTINE Two rumors reached town today about George M. Valentine. One of them was that Woodbridge people had Invited him to leave town and the other was that a reception had een given in his honor at Woodbridge. People could take their choice which they wanted to believe. Inquiry snowed that both were false.

SO DISCONSOLATE The court constables are disconsolate.

LEGION DEPENDED ON A CHANGE, IT IS HELD METHODS OF PAYMENT PROVIDED. A large number of the members of St. Peter'a Council and Rogers' Council, C. B. L., attended a Joint meeting in the Viehmann building last evening le listen to a debate on the new laws changing the assessment rates of the order. Supreme Treasurer James A. Rowe, of Newark, and ex-State President Barry were present and explained the new rates. The new law has caused considerable uneasiness among the members who have opposed the Increased payments, but after listening to the explanations last evening many of the objections were removed. , . Formerly the dues were fixed according to a man's age when he became a member and there was no Increase". Now comes a provision that the dues of all members be raised to a sum in accordance with present age and that hereafter there will be no increase. . , This means that men who went Jn at the age of S3 fifteen years ago must now pay nearly twice aa much as before, be cause the dues are to be figured on their present age of 48 years. The committee which arranged last evening's meeting was as follows: J. 3. McCloakey, James F. Tomney. Hugh Kearny, Edward Philips, James Houghton and F. W. Stahlen. The new rates fixed by the Supreme Council are very much in excess of the old and it is apprehended may result in many members leaving the Legion,' however the officers last night held that the change Mas necessary. It was stated that according to the experience of the Legion, a new basis was inevitable. Under the new reckoning interest is assumed to be earned at the rate of 4 per cent per annum upon the expended balances from year to year. ' It wag voted by the Supreme Council that, first, each new member be admitted to pay the new rate of contribution for his age at admission and that from his payments a sufficient reserve be made to maintain the ' same level throughout life. Second, each existing member pay the new rate of contribution at his age attained on September 1st, 1904, or that in lieu thereof, if he so desire, he pay the rate at his age on admission, making good to the Legion in cash or by consenting that the same be charged against his policy 'on which he will pay interest at 4 per cent, per annum, the reserve which would have been accumulated under big certificate if he had paid the requisite number of assessments from the beginning. It was further voted that each member between the ages of 18 and 60, inclusive, be permitted if he so desire, to pay one-half of his rate in cash, the other half being charged against his certificate, he paying interest at the rate of 4 per cent, per annum upon all such charges, and that as to members above the age of 60 they be permitted to pay 55 per cent, of the rate in cash and to have the remaining 45 per cent, charged against their certificates, they paying interest on all such charges at the rate of 4 per cent, per annum. ' A member entering at the age of 30 in 1889 and, now 45 years of age with a certificate for $1,000 may either pay the rate of $1.21 bi-weekly, the same being the rate at his attained aee of 45. and to remain level throughout life; or pay one-half the rate of $1.21, being 61 cents in cash, permitting the other 60 cents to be charged against his certificate, he to pay 4 per cent, interest upon such charges; or pay the rate of 72 cents, being the rate at his age on admission, he paying to the Supreme Council the amount of $177, the same being the reserv? which would have accumulated under his certificate had he paid the correct number of assessments from the beginning; or pay the rate of 72 cents, being the rate at his age of admission, and consent that the amount of the reserve, $17, shatl stand as a charge against his certificate, he to pay interest on such charge at the rate of 4 per cent. perannnm, with his assessments. In this case the full payment will be as follows: Assessments 72 cents, interest -27 cents; total, 89 cents, bi-weekly.

PIGS ft NUISANCE Health Board Breaks Up a Happy Sty in the Second Ward. WAEM WEATHEE BEINGS LOTS OF COMPLAINTS EXPERIMENTS BEING MADE TO PURIFY CITY WATER WITH SULPHATE OF COPPER. The members of the Board of Health, forced by a sense of civic duty to forego the pleasure of hearing "The Creation" sung lp the Second Reformed Church held a two hour session last night listening to complaints of various nuisances in the city, varied occasionally as strains from the divine choruses were wafted across the street. At the meeting were President J. B. Smith. George K. Parsell, Inspector 8. V. D. Clark, Prof. F. C, Van Dyck, Frank J. Ward and H. B. Willis. There were a number of complaints of nuisances existing in the Second Ward. Vin-eenzo Ramponl wag haled before the Board to tell why the four pigs he mam-tains In a pen at Hale street and Hera-sen avenue do not live according to the health ordinance. The pen. said Inspector Clark, is not properly constructed nor drained and is very obnoxious to the neighbors. Ramponl said he thought his pigs were as sanitary as the average, but he wanted to do what was right. President Smith read the requirements of the ordinance regarding animal quarters. Ramponi estimated that if he did all the law reauired he would have to spend more than the pigs were worth. He agreed to send his pigs out of the eity and abolish the pen, which was satisfactory to the Board. He promised to have other improvements made at his property. Antonio Catalona, the abdicated Italian king, wag called to tell why a proper vault was not maintained at his property on Remsen avenue. Catalona lives out of town and when the Health authorities got after hig place he gent word to his tenant to have the vault constructed. The latter had a wooden one made and the bill of $10 was sent to Catalona. Aa the ordinance provides a brick structure the Job will have to be done all over again. Catalona wanted six months to have the work done. The Board gave him thirty days. William Hannah appeared before the Board regarding his property at 196 Remsen avenue, the tenants, who are Italians, having violated the health ordinance. Mr. Hannah promised to keep a closer watch and have a proper vault constructed. In response to a notice from the Board August Streitwolf sent a letter promising to have his properties at 3M to 324 Seaman street connected with the sewer. Daniel Applegate appeared before the Board charged with maintaining a manure heap In his yard between Codwise avenue and Drift street. He was given five days to have the heap removed. Complaints were . made against the houses of Mrs. A. 8. Randolph, 1S6 Burnet street and Thomas Smith, "New street, as being unsanitary.

Inspector Clark said one citizen notified the Health department to remove a dead rat, but the department decided not to handle anything smaller than a cat. A petition from several Third Ward residents wes received complaining of a disagreeable odor at the corner of Church and Dennis streets. The matter has been corrected. President Smith announced the appointment of standing committees as follows: Conference, George K. Parsell and Prof. V. C. Van Dyck; disinfection. Dr. A. L. Smith and Dr. S. V. D. Clark. President Smith said that a conference with F. B. KUmer, chemist of the Board some time ago, it was decided to conduct a series of experiments with the city water to see what effect sulphate of copper would have upon it. A recent bulletin of the Department of Agriculture spoke very highly of the purifying effects of this chemical in water, and declared it to be deadly to typhoid germs. Prof. Smith said he was now trying the effects of sulphate of copper on water in the gross form while Mr. Kilmer is trying Its effects on the vegetable matter. The experiments are still under way and Prof. Smith said It was premature to say what the result would be, but he intended to try if possible, in this way or another to get the city water purified.
