it j l u i n NUMBER, 2126. CAMDEN, N. J ,-WEDNESD A Y-AUGUST 231 882. ONE CENT. MARKED " PERSONAL." A VOICE FROM LUMBERTON. More About the Effort to Compel Harry Hollinshed to Walk from Ohio to Camden. Editorial Correspondence 0 Xtmberton, Aug. 22. I see by papers affectionately marked and forwarded to this place, that my friend Harry Hollinshed, who is a great practical joker, and was originally cut out for the imperial of a euchre deck, denies that he would walk all the way from Ohio to vote against Gen, Robeson for Congress. Please say that I have not yet learned the exact particulars, but presume that, like some other folks I wot of, he would prefer to come home on a pass. Or perhaps he has ex-perienced a sudden rheumatic attack, and cannot walk at all. The Courier, I notice, prints a half column letter and an editorial in addition, and it does look as though there was an effort to palsy the universe with the astounding declaration that Mr. Hollinshed had determined to ride home from Ohio, whereas the folks he left behind him had supposed him tramping from pkce to place, like the veritable American genus homo. I confess that the news startles me, and yet I am puzzled to know wherein the people of Camden are concerned. If Harry prefers to ride home it is no man's right to impugn his motives. Let him ride, and why should his denial that he was to walk, be blazoned before the community ? Has he not a rishtto deny it? Is not liberty of epeech his prerogative, and will the Robe-son managers assume to prevent him from exercising his dearly beloved privilege ? Surely the Post has not asked him to walk, nor does the junior care how he reaches home to vote against Robeson. He mav come in a Pullman or ride on a bi cycle. It is none of my business. As a near friend of one whom I love, and who has no doubt ere this felt conscious of a hasty misinterpretation of one's motive, (at least this,) and knowing that from the davs when he used to keep watch over a jewelry store at Fourth and Market, un til he Went to ixmnecucui, came DacK again and then went to Ohio, that he was . always wont be on the riahl side. I naturally made the postscript to his letter of August loth. If, as a commercial traveler, ne has become demoralized, if, while away from the kindly care of the Young Men's Christian Association of Camden, he has gone-West nd4)eoome addicted to ifcM nabit ot getting on tne wrong nae, men how was I to know without advice? Did he expect me to come out to Ohio (and walk, perhaps,) to find out whether he was goiDg 10 ue rijjm m uiu vuugico- sional campaign or not ? I submit, Harry, that this would be asking too much, and 0, taking it for granted that you were right, as usual, I placed you right. You now reject this kindness, and rush into print to make a serious matter over what you fiknew was, and must be, under the circumstances, a bit of -fun at your expense. And to think you would regard it as too expensive! Let me recall a scene in the old debating society rooms at 106 Market street, perhaps ten years ago. Question, "Are theatres more productive of good than evil?" You were opposed to theaters, and you let out a fear ful volley of long pent up combustibles of the hery lyceum order. 1 nomas B. Harned, Esq., then a stammering student, but now bnej of the most eloquent mem bers of the Camden bar, replied that you never saw the interior of a theatre, and knew nothing of what you were talking about. Yon responded that you did not have to go to hell first, to know of the character of that place, to which Tom answered that from your ignorance of the theatre as shown in your argument, he was satisfied that nothing but a personal Tisit would ever give you the information needed. .And so, Harry, fifteen days ajjo I was like you were ten years ago. I did not suppose 1 would have to come out to Ohio to learn of the character of your political opinions. I thought I knew all about them, and am' now, like barrister Harned, fully convinced that a personal Tisit is necessary in order to learn some things. B.'L. Bonsall. Camden Finance Committee. The Finance Committee of Camden City Council met last evening. Communications were read from the National State Bank and from the Camden Safe Deposit and Trust Company, the former offering to loan the city f 2-5,000 at 5 per cent, and the latter at 6.

This fine edifice, situated on Kaighn avenue below Third street, is being rapidly pushed forward to completion, the workmen now being engaged in arranging the seats and pulpit, and finishing the interior decorations. The seats will be of polished ash, with walnut ends, and will be arranged in circular form. There will be a seating capacity of nearly nine hun dred. There will be two nicely arranged class rooms, and a commodious room for prayer meetings, etc. The main audience room is 68 by 78 feet. The windows are of stained glass, and the interior arrangements, when complete, will be very attractive. The choir will be seated in a recess at the rear of the pulpit, where they will render the sweet songs of Zion. This church is a branch of the old mother church at Fifth and Mt. Vernon streets, better known as the Union Church. When the split first took place, about a dozen of them resumed worship in au old blacksmith shop on Libertystreet. c This was nearly three years ago, and from that time up to the present, membership and Pastor have struggled faithfully, and earnestly, to build for themselves a spacious church edifice, and to-day with hearts full of lankftilness they look upon the results of their labor. Under the pastorate of Rev. J. H. Boswell, the membership has increased nearly 300, with a Sabbath school of nearly five hundred scholars. Still the good work goes on; at the present time a revival is in progress, in a tent in the rear of the church, and some thirty-five persons, mostly adults have professed conversion within the past few weeks. The church property is valued at from twenty to twenty-five thousand dollars, and is insured already for 114.600. The financial interests of the church are in good condition, and no trouble is anticipated in clearing the church from debt. A Word From Wise Men. Camdex, Aug. 21st, 1S82. Editors of Daily Post : It is but just and right that you should be informed that the members of New Jersey Conclave, No. 3, Heptasophs or Seven Wise Men, feel under many obligations to you for the comment in reference to their promptness in paying over the funeral benefits of one of their deceased brothers. It is true that there are in our city various beneficial orders and associations, but I know of none that study that particular part of their duty (relieving the distressed) more than the Seven Wise Men. Although we are not so prominent before the people as some other orders, yet those who are so fortunate as to be members will readily testify that our order stands second to none in Camden in this respect. We have three Conclaves in Camden and one in Gloucester City. Bro. Samuel Butcher was one of the originators of our Conclave, having entered as a charter member in 1870. He was a brother whb was always to be found at his post. We learned to love him, because of his kind and brotherly manner. He was always ready to do any duty that he was assigned to and had filled every office from the lowest to the highest in the Conclave, and at the time of his death he was filling a position that he had served in for over six years, never missing one meeting except he was sick and unable to attend. He was a Wise Man in its fullest sense, and there fore not only preached, but practiced " Wisdom, Truth and Benevolence." Permit me, in behalf of New Jersey Conclave, to thank your kind recognition and public announcement. Respectfully, Heptasoph. Gee Lah Chased by Boys. An Infamous Outrage. Federal street for a long time past has been disgraced by a lot of young roughs, who make'IL unsafe ior respectable people to walk up and down the street after dark. Complaints have been made that t he city is not properly protected, and not without just cause. Last evening Federal street was in a stale of commotion by Gee Lah, a Chinaman, employed in the laundry of Gee Wah, No. 425 Federal street, running towards the ferry, shouting, no policee when wantee. He was followed by a crowd of boys, who helped to keep up tht excitement, they thinking it was fun to hunt the Chinese. The cause of the disturbance was that a lot of boys who are in the habit of throwing stones, old cans, mud, and anything they can get hold of, jinto the laundry kept by Gee Wah, amus ed themselves in that manner. Alter standing the abuse for a long time, the celestials made a rush forthe boys, who fled in all directions ; but some rallied and commenced another onslaught. Gee Wall's assistant then started out to hunt for the police, when he was immediately followed by the boys,' who threw all kinds of stuff at him. The faster he ran, the faster the boys followed, when some unknown hoodlum threw a brick at Gee Wah, knocking him senseless. His head this morning presented a frightful spectacle, being cut and gashed in several places. He at last took refuge in the West Jersey building, and a prominent official saw him safely on board a ferry boat. Gee W ah says he will prosecute the boys, and also asks for the protection of the police. A Biff Fish Story Expected. Messrs. Varney, Dill, Ferat, Thomp son, OConnell, Numbers and Rob. Stock ton, left this city yesterday afternoon, for Barnegat, on a fishing excursion. The toughest fish yarn of the season may be looked for to-morrow. ' THE NARROW WAY, MORE NEGOTIATIONS FOR A RAILROAD. Offers for the Camden and Atlantic and for the Narrow Gauge. Thit morning't Phila. Record. In connection with the story of the negotiations for the purchase of the Narrow Gauge Road to Atlantic City it is stated that a brokers' firm bargained with Mr. Massey to deliver that road, free of all incumbrances, to several gentlemen connected with the Camden and Atlantic Railroad Company for $440,000. Mr. Massey was to foreclose and hand the road over to the syndicate with a clear title, and was to be paid $25,000 in cash, $15,000 in a note for six months, $50,000 in the preferred stock of the Camden and Atlantic Railroad Company, and $3-50,000 in bonds to be issued by the syndicate and indorsed by the Camden and Atlantic Railroad Company. It was thought this would certainly be consummated, but the next announcement was that the road could not be had for less than $o00,000. The Camden and Atlantic Company was not to be known iu the transaction. Mr. Charles Freeman, its President, was to act in his individual capacity, and therefore, if the plans had gone through, the Courts of New Jersey could not have trevented the sale. Then one of the anti-reeman element among the stockholders of the Camden and Atlantic road evolved another scheme to enlist Messrs. Gowen and Garrett's interests in the road, and the result was a plump oiler to lease the Camden and Atlantic at 4 per cent, on the preferred stock, and increased business to make the common stock pay 3 per cent, within a year was to be put on the line. It was the purpose of Messrs. Gowen and Garrett to operate it in connection with the New Jersey Central Railroad. When the proposition of lease was made known it was frowned down by the present management, who believe that the road can be made to earn 10 per cent, without but-side influence. Mr. Freeman gives all to understand that the Narrow Gauge route will yet belong to his party, and that the terms aie as favorable as can be obtained. Haddonfleld Matters Grace P. E. Sunday School make their annual excursion to Lakeside Park to day. The crops !of watermelons, citrons and egg plants in our vicinity are great and of excellent quality. Six more new cottages are contracted for tobe erected on Haddon avenue and Chest nut streets. The late heavy rains have done an immense amount of good to the cabbage crop, and in the absence of the worm, the crop promises to be a great one. Travel on the Marlton and Medford Railroad is on the increase, both in the passenger and freight departments, and another train will shortly be put on to accommodate the business. Mayor's Court. Mary McGibbon, for being drunk, was arrested by officer Horner, tthe also paid her fine, and was dismissed. George Custard was this morning taken Ui Atlantic City, for a hearing, on the charge of malicious mischief, on one of the trains of the Camden & Atlantic Railroad.

Smith, and Jacob Gunther, all belonging to- the -Amity -Social Club, Ninth and Thompson street, Philadelphia Justice Tarr gave the prisoners good advice and let Smith off with a fine. Jacob Gunther who stated he had a wife and family, and did not take part in the fight was dismissed with a caution. The authorities are determined to put a stop to the rowdyism at Lakeside Park, and the different places of pleasure on t he road. " r " " Burlington. The policy of another bank in this city is now a subject of much discussion. Not the least exception is or can be taken to the conceded admirable management of our Mechanics National Bank, but the increased and daily growing financial interests of Burlington, warrants, it is thought, more extended banking facilities. It is estimated that for wages of operatives alone, over $30,000 are paid out weekly in this city. The many friends of Mr. aud Mrs. Samuel Semple, of your city, will be pained to learn that Mrs. S. is lying critically ill with typhoid fever at her father" e residence in this city. Personal. .

The Merritts went to Mechanicsburg( Pa., yesterday, to play a game at the Grangers' Fair, which is being held there, with the Actives, of Reading.

Great interest is manifested here in the attempt of Mrs. Gill, of Philadelphia, to take Miss Sallie Cook back to Philadelphia, as published in the Post of yesterday. The hearing on the writ to show cause why Miss Cook should not be given up to the Philadelphia parties, which was to have been heard by Justice Parker, at Belden's Hotel, yesterday, was- postponed for two weeks. Quite a breeze was created at Kirby & Bros.' canning house, in connection with this case, a di;y or two ago. A person called at the factory and asked for Sallie Cook, who was then working in that establishment. It soon became known that another attempt was being made to carry Miss Cook off, and the female employes arose in a mass and "went for" the man in dead earnest with all kinds of wound-dealing implements. The last seen of the man lie was making-for Beverly, down the railroad ..track- An army of enraged petticoats was too much for him. Wanted to Die.

When Miss Foster and a lady friend started to church, Henly followed them a shortlis tance to a cornfield, which he entered, and there shot himself in the arm. He was taken to the lock-up, where he was confined until yesterday morning, and then discharged. He is evidently crazy, and says he cannot live unless Miss Foster will consent to be his wife.

GROCERY STORES THE FAVORITE POINT OF ATTACK. Otis ens are Becoming Uneasy, and Talk of Protecting ThemseKet. This morning about 1 o'clock thieves effected an entrance into the butcher shop of Frank Fernan, on the corner ol Fourth and Senate streets. They got in by climbing over the transom, and after working for a long time at the combination lock on the money-drawer, succeeded in tearing it apart, getting about two dollars. They carried away with them two or three hams, and a lot of bologna sausaze. The sausage was found this morning near rtstiacks' grocery store, at fourth and Washington. Officer Devault heard a suspicious noise this morning about one o'clock, but immediately afterward beard a watchman's whistle from Stevens street, and responded to the call, thus giving the thieves an opportunity to escape. Shortly after the butcher store of Frank Fernan had been robbed this morning, the little store of Mrs. Guss, at Fourth and Hamilton streets, was entered by the thieves climbing in over the transom, but here they got no money. The articles miss ed were some cantaloupes. Thieves last broke into the gro cery store of Mr. Daniel Dickson, corner of Washington and Riley streets. They gained an entrance by forcing open the transom over the front door, and then proceeded to force open the cash drawer, in which they succeeded, but fortunately for the proprietor, he had taken the pro ceeds of the day's sales out of the drawer. Some small change, amounting to SOceuts, which had been left outside of the drawer was taken. No clue to the thieves has yet being found. Meeting of the Republican Executive Committee.
