ESTABLISHED 1875. CAMDEN, N. J., SATURDAY, MAY 2, 1896. ONE CENT3 LIST EDIT 1 MUZAFFES IS SHAH. Tha Assassinated Monarch's Second Son Proolaimed Euler of Persia. TBHEKAN, May 2. Muzaffer-ed-Din, the dead monarch's second son and heir to the throne, has been proclaimed Shah and it is given out that the eldest son or the Shah will strive to wrest the throne from the heir. The assassination of Nasar-edDin yesterday is calculated not only to affect gravely the iortunes or Persia Itself but likewise the maintenance of the peace of Europe. THE STATE'S STROHG ABM. - a The Second Brigade Left Ont in the Cold. Newaek, May 3. The doubt that has existed as to the rifle practice for the National Guard has been removed by a confe fence between Governor Griggs and the officers of the guard. The fact that the -appropriation for the rifle practice department was reduced by the last Legislature had the effect of embarrassing the department, for they were only allowed $8,000 and needed $14,000. The result of the conference was that it has been decided to give the First Brigade the usual three weeks' rifle practice at the State's expense, and the Second Brigade will bo given two weeks at the expense of the members of the brigade, if General Seweil consents to allow the mombers of the Second Brigade to do range duty the same time that they are in camp.

Tire Breaks Ont in a Woolen Waste Storehouse, Afire, causing a. total loss of about 17,500, broke out this morning in the cotton and woolen waste house of David Robinson, situated on Ellis street, just above Emerald street, Philadelphia. The fire broke out at 8.45 o'olock on the second floor, where large quantities of wool and cotton waste were stored, and burned its way through the third floor, totally destroying the contents of fcoth floors.

Sentence was deferred in their case until the Railroad Company can be noticed. Smith is said to be an incorrigible youth, and it is probable he will be sent to the Reform School. The gate tender at Seventh and Washington streets said the boys had time and .again stoned him, and had often narrowly escaped death by jumping on ''itfte understood that the Railroad officials are going to make examples of thebe lads.

Items of More or Less Interest to Headers Across the Greek. Yesterday afternoon, at 4 o'clock, the old Republican Town Council met at Rlstlne Hall. In the absence of President Dudley, who was in Newark, Mr. Cramer was elected chairman. A liquor application of Charles Mangold which was approved by the License Committee was brought up before Council and knocked out on a tie vote. On motion of Mr. Lee the president was instructed to sign the contract for the grading of Cooper avenue. At the instance of Mr. Petzelt, the saloonkeepers were given twenty days in which to take out their licenses, after which the old Council adjourned sine die. Promptly at the adjournment of the Republican Council the new Democratic Reform Council was called to order by Chairman Williams. The roll call showed all the members to be present. The chairman announced the following standing committees: Finance, KenslDger, Petzelt, Cramer; accounts, Kensinger, Petzelt, Betts; fire, Petzelt, Kensinger, Betts; lighting, Weiss, Petzelt, Volgt; building, Kensinger, Petzelt, Betts; poor, Cramer, Kensinsrer, Weiss; printing and supplies, Weiss, Kensinger, Voigt; public property, Petzelt, Weiss, Kensinger; railroads, Ken singer, Weiss, Voigt; elections, Voigt, Petzelt, Weiss; licenses, Weiss, Petzelt, Cramer; sinking fund, Betts, Kensinger, Weiss; ordinances, Petzelt, Kensinger, Betts; police, Petzelt, Weiss, Cramer; streets and sewers, Petzelt, Kensinger, Cramer; water, Weiss, Kensinger, Petzelt Chairman Williams appointed Saru'l N. Johnson temporary Bergeant-at-arms. Mr. Petzelt offered a resolution that section 2d of the fire ordinance be altered to read 'Firty active members to each fire company' instead of 'twenty-five exempt members.' This raised quite a discussion, but it was adopted by a vote of 5 to 3. Mr. Petzelt introduced a resolution "that the Assessor allow no exemption from taxes unless a County Clerk's certificate of exempt fireman is exhibited, or the name appears on the list of active flVeinen of each company, signed by the President and Secretary, under seal." This, too, was adopted on roll call. Another measure passed in the inter est of the' firemen was a resolution in troduced by Mr. Petzelt, whioh is as fol lows: Resolved, That all exempt firemen be allowed to pay their taxes of 1895, less the tax exemption, without extra costs and interest. All such taxes unpaid after June lst &hall have the usual costs and interest added thereto as delinquents. Mr. Petzelt then offered a resolution decreasing the salaries of all the officials liuOeach, excepting the solicitor's which whs cut in two, making it 1500. ILach of these were passed on separately and adopted, Mr. Cramer voting with the Democrats. Solictor Rex stated that the Council was exceeding its power in attempting to decrease or increase the salary of those elected or the holdover officers as the law distinctly says the salary of any official cannot be increased or diminished during his term of office. The clerk, assessor and collector were elected at a fixed salary and consequently their salary cannot be altered. It was in the province of the old Couuoil previous to the election to nx tne salaries oi me officers to be elected. Solictor Rex cited a similar instance where the Board of Freeholders of this oounty attempted to alter an officials salary, but were beaten. Mr. Petzelt offered a proviso that he would like to see the elected officers salaries decreased "if it were possible." The resolutions were referred to the solicitor and the Council adjourned until the 12th Inst. The Board of Education met also. The Finance Committee submitted a re port showing a balance May 1st of $3.-120.51, which was filed. Previous to final adjournment Presi dent Jones thanked the members for the uniform courtesy extended him during his term as t residing officer. The new Board was called to Order by Mr. Jones. All the members answered roll call. William J. Fox. of the First ward, was elected president. Mr. Fox thanked the Board for the honor conferred. David Austermuhl was nomin ated and elected secretary. The salary was made $250 per annum, and the sec retary is to act as clerk of the supply committee. Robert Gick, James Caskey and Romeo Valentine were elected janitors for the V.iftin.

Tillman Declares That He Will Desert the Demoeratlo-Party If Silver I Ig nored Senator Gorman Saeoeeds la Oat ting Down the Naval Appropriation. Washiutotow, May 2. The debate in the senate yesterday was of a dramatic and sensational oharacter, recalling the famous Ingulls-Voorheea eon test of some years ago. Senator Tillman, of South Carolina, again brought his unique personality into the debate, his speech being the first of any length sinee his memorable maiden effort attacking public: officials, high and low. While he spoke the silver pitchfork presented to him in the west was conspicuously displayed on his scarf. ' The senator used the blunt words characteristic of his utterance, arraigning the president and oabinet officers with unsparing criticism and personal invective. He also addressed himself personally to Mr. Hill and Mr. Sherman, and drew from the former several sharp rejoinders, while Mr. Sherman declined to be brought into a controversy with the South Carolina senator. Mr. Tillman charged Senator Hill with being a representative of the bankers rather than of the people, and after sharply oritioizing bond issues exclaimed: ; "If you force this thing much farther there will be a repudiation of bonds and Interest, too." ) ' "And if you can't have that," i coolly suggested Mr. Hill, "I suppose you'll have bloodshed?" "Yes, and the blood will be on your hands," responded Mr. Tillman, his words ringing through the chamber. "1 tell you we are desperate," Mr. Tillman wont on. "I have been through the west and I know how the people-Toel." Speaking of the president Mr. Tillman declared that "he stands as the tool of the classes, representlngonly money, the almighty dollar. Grover Cleveland,! John Sherman and John Carlisle are affinities." Proceeding he argued with vehemence that the taxes to pay for the bonds "would be wrung from the hands of the tolling masses. Nothing would be paid by the plutocrats who sat in their offloes and clipped coupons. . ' The senator added that the Democracy could not win in the coming election. If the farmers could be fooled into voting that.ticket any longer let them do it, "And what will I do?" the senator asked of himself, and then answered: "I expect to go to Chioago as a delegate. I expeot to try to get my party to throw off : its rottenness. If we have to bid good-by to New York and Tammany I may shed! a few tears. But if they succeed in buying a few more delegates as I understand they did in Michigan the other day so as to be able to indorse Grover Cleveland and 'sound money,' then I am going to take my hat and Did the senator irom rter York and all like him a long farewell, Where I'll go I don't know. I can't go t$ Populism. Populism is only an explosion of .wrath. The Populists tried too much and spattered themselves on the wall." The senator declared that the Democracy was on its final trial. If it did not pro nounce for free silver at Chicago . it was gone for ever. Mr. Tillman next took up Seoretary Herbert, who, said the senator, had been making a speech at Cleveland to soma bond owners and coupon clippers, and made running comments while he read the secretary's speech. He spoke of tha shylooks ruling the people, and devouring them. It would be better, he commented, if they absorbed the people at once instead of spreading It over years. ' But 1 tell you l can see the . end com ing," said Mr. Tillman. "There is a God in Heaven, and a reckoning must come. We need a purification of public life. We need a new constitutional convention to declare the people's rights and to tie the hands of the thieves who are I robbing them." 1 Mr. HH1 followed Mr. Tillman, answer ing the latter point by point. The New York senator referred to the coming Democratic national convention, declaring that there would be no split, but that true Democracy would reoognize the rule of the majority and keep the party Intact, despite the threats of the South' Carolina senator to leave the party. Mr. Hill spokt freely and frankly of his differences with the offlcors of the administration, and in particular referred to J the grievous mistake, as he regarded it, of Seoretary Car lisle in not supporting senator dacKDurn when the latter was the nominee of a Democratic caucus. The senator discussed internal party affairs, urging harmony and the termination of venomous assaults of Democrats on a Democratic president. He spoke for two hours, and was accorded the closest attention. J i Mr. Hill turned his attention to Mr. Tillman's statement as to dulting the Democratio party. The New York sena tor said the essential principle of the Democratio party was its reoognitiqn of the rule of the majority. The South Caro lina senator declares he wlU-go;to the Chi cago convention. Mr.; Hill supposed, he said, that the senator like a true Demo-rAt would abide by the decrees ef the con vention. "If be goes there with any other M " fHtelaimed Mr, BUI, with ringing vehemence, "he ought not to be admitted nrt he will not be admitted.' The debate attracted a great crowd to the senate wing pi the Capitol-he greatest aincfl conarress assembled, Wimg en- af naileries and overflowing Into the oorr ridors, where long lines of people struggled for admission.

"THE SEWELL QUABDS." Gatling Qua Company 3 ; Bos a Muster and Inspection. Gatling Gun Company B had an ex traordinary turnout at its muster and inspection, last night, at the Armory. Every member of the Company was present, and one member had just recovered from a surgical operation and was so ill that he had to alt upon a chair during all the exercises. Four ex-lieutenants were present. Brigade inspector Uo.onel D. B. Mur phy inspected the Company and cap t. John R. Jones was highly complimented on the appearance of his. men and the manner in which they periormed their duties.

After disposing of the luncheon and while cigars were belnc passed around speeohes were made by Colonel . L. B. Godfrey, John H. Fort, Esq; Captain stumer, of Company B; Major Charles S. Barnard. Howlaud Croft, Esq.. and others.

BY-THE-WAY. and Nonsense Gathered There and Everywherei Here, vRev. J. B. Graw, D. D., formerly of this city, offered a motion to the General Conference of the M. E. church,at Cleveland, yesterday to the effect that "pending the organization of the body the admission of the women delegates be held in abeyance." Rev. r Dr. Neely, of Philadelphia, sprang to his feet and declared that, while he was personally opposed to the admission of women,; to adopt Dr. Graw's resolution would prejudice the whole case, and that such procedure was without parallel or justification in parliamentary law. He insisted that, by the roll-call, the women were delegates, and the question of eligibility now involved a question of their exclusion. He maintained that the precedent, if followed, would enable 20 men, by like procedure, to challenge and exclude from active participation 500 others. A motion to lay Dr. Graw's motion on the table was quickly made and adopted by an overwhelming majority, j So, four women delegates to the conference who were present, were seated to the disoomflture of Dr. Graw, Rev. Dr. Buckley'and others. There is much unfeigned but not unchristian satisfaction among Methodists in this city, over the fact that Rev. Dr. Graw's apparently triumphant crusade against "equal representation" and progress has, at last, been stayed and probably squelched. After a generation of service as Justice of the Peaoe 'Squire Cassady has been ungraciously retired through the exigencies of politics, and has earned a rest whioh lie should take for the whole season at Pitman Grove. But the 'Squire is not built that way. He must continue his active life and will be found at the old stand, 128 Federal street, giving prompt attention to collections, conveyancing, acknowledgments, affidavits and notarial business, while pension vouchors will be executed as aforetime.

Bat May be Valuable to the Owner. "Jimmy" Patterson, one of the best known and most popular newspaper men of riew York and Philadelphia, who has been for some time Congressional correspondent for a New York newspaper, while on his way to the metropolis yesterday stopped to see old friends in Philadelphia. 'Besides being one of the most genial of men, "Jimmy" has a heart in his bosom of very generous proportions. As he was walking near the foot of Market street in that olty Mr. Patterson picked up a small purse which was bulged with its contents. Upon investigation it was found to contain, however, not bank notes, but newspaper clippings which denoted that the purse had been lost by some woman evidently the wife of an old soldier. Though in a hurry to catch a train for New York the kind-hearted newspaper man took time to send the purse and its contents to TUB Post. "It possibly belongs to some poor old woman, and that one cent it contains may be all she, has. There is one of Sam Hudson's articles from Washington on the pension bill, and a paper on which is written the address of Harry Louden-slager, of the Pension Committee of the House of Representatives. These things go to convince me that that purse is of value to some poor soldier's widow. God bless her. Find her if you can," was the word bent with the purse. Besides the above mentioned articles the purse contained a British florin, three tickest on the Camden,' Gloucester and Woodbury Railway, the address of Lawyer Henry Hollinshed, Jr., of this city, and one cent The purse can be recovered by the owner applying at The Post. .

Pawed Without Violence. London, May 2. Advloes received here from cities and towns throughout the continent of Europe show that there have been small socialist and labor meetings, incident to May day, but there has been little suspension of work, in spite of the apprehensions which have been felt that the day would be characterized by wide-' spread labor disturbances. There has been no disorder whatever, except at "Vienna, at Bllboa and in Hungary. . ; In Vienna all work was entirely suspended, and meetings of laborers were held In every quarter of the city and were very largely attended, j These meetings adopted resolutions in : favor of universal suffrage. i i At 2 o'clock in the afternoon enormous erowds proceeded along the Biugstrasse to the Prater, where the cafes and restau-: rants were crammed full of people. The numbers were estimated at over 90,000 people. - i Notwithstanding this vast concourse all was quiet until a dispute arose in the evening between some Bohemian workmen , and the landlord of the big Swoboda res-' taurant. The workmen became infuriated and smashed everything in the restaurant. A fierce fight ensued with the mounted and foot police. Numbers of persons, Including women and children, wore seriously wounded by Sabers, and the hand of one person was cut off. Many of the police were also badly injured, including three inspectors, by tones,! beer jugs and whatever else the rioters could lay hold of for use as missiles. : The military was summoned by telephone and two squadrons of lancers, with drawn sabers, galloped to the Prater, followed by four battalions of Infantry, who hastened to the scene at a double ; quick with fixed bayonets. - Intense excitement was caused throughout the city by the rioting and by vague fears of a widespread outbreak. Fifty arrests were made, and ninety persons in- iured were taken to' the hospital, while arge numbers of those who were hurt were carried to their homes by friends. Order was restored in the olty by 8 o'clock In the evening. i At Bilboa, in Spain, 1,500 miners from the Gallerta and Arboleda distriots struck and became riotous, so that the gendarmes ware obliged to fire upon them to suppress the disturbance, j A May day riot ooourred at Chatelet, in the province of Hain suit, D gidni.
