The special committee, consisting of Messrs. Roberts, Lawton, Humphreys, 6oathrd and Sayrs, which was appointed by Cooncil to Inquire Into the fee sad salaries of the eity officials, held a meeting. Little was done, however II r. 8eyrs said that ha believed the officials now reoeluog fees In addition to salaries were the Mayor, City Clerk, City Counsel, City Surveyor and Beoelver of Taxes. "I think all orolals should be pat on salaries, " said Mr. Ssyrs. "I don't know that I agree with yon," remarked Mr. Roberta ;"take, for instance, the ReoeiTer of Tsiee; I think It would naturally make him more zialoas in the collection of delinquent taxes, to receive a . certain fee for each one he collects, rather than to put bim on a salary which he knows he will receive anyhow, whether all the delinquent taxes are collected or not." The committee dsolded that It could not do much at that meeting and instructed the clerk to communicate with other second class cities and ascertain what salaries their officials received and whether they received fees or not, and further, to report to tbe committee what officials of our city are receiving fees and what salaries they are also getting. " TH CITY'S FINANCES. - At the meeting of the Flnanos Committee, an opinion of City Counsel Morgan ai received, whioh had previously been requested, oonoerning the liability of the Ciiv Treasurer for the oity's money which bduoeits in the banks of the city, in the event If the failure or one ol tbe banics.

Prohibitionists for Prohibition Only, Tbe Prohibitionists held a convention last night to nominate candidates for City Treasurer and Counoilman-at-Large. An extended debate was participated in aa to the advisability of endorsing R. H. Reeve for City Treasurer, the nominee of the Committee of 100 . A resolution to en dorse the 100 ticket was tabled, and resolntion was presented tbat no one but Prohibitionists should be placed on their ticket. No candidates' wera chosen last night, but another meeting trill be held tomorrow night, when they will make straight Prohibition nominations, as they say that the principles of the Prohlbltio party prevent them from endorsing tbe nominees of any party that endorses the license fyatem. . . , Tbe Revival at Calvary Church, The special evangelistic services at the Calvary Presbyterian Church, under the direction of Rev. Ford C. Ottman, of Newark, began laat evening. Considering the condition of the weather, there was a good attendance at the opening meeting. The first sermon by the evangelist, on "The Friend of God," made a profonnd impression, ana ooaia not tan to stimulate Christians to put forth every effort to bring others into this relation, Ottman is a forceful, eloquent preaoher, and it is a delight to liBteu to his luoid nnfolding of gospel trnth. The ohuroh will be filled this evening. Come earjy so as to be sure of securing a seat. After noon meeting at 3.30 o clock. All wel come. . Matured its Feurth Series. The Economy Building and Loan Association, notwithstanding the depressed oondition of bnsinets, has matured its fourth series and paid the same off last evening without any previous notloe." Tbe offioers of this association deserve favorable mention, notwithstanding many drawbaoks in the bnsinest world in this past three years, who without regard to these bad $10,000 to distrlbu'e to the holders of the foorth series books . -The security and safety of the local building sooiety is well illustrated in this transaction. Secretary Burleigh is surrounded with a body of officers and directors that have kept a olose supervision npon the affairs of the society, whioh accounts for its prosperity. - - - Illaiikd Fifletu Tears.

The large mill of Howland Croft.Sons & Company, whioh has been in full opera tion all winter, haa commenced this week to rub but fonr days in the week. This haa been made neoessa-y because they are at present overstocked. Fall time will be resumed as soon as the present atook is disposed of.

Atlantic CrTT,N.J.,March -J4 Sfxcux This resort is now In the midst of ths Lenten aeaionTand to one who would but stroll the walk of an afternoon it hardly seems possible for it to be the blnstry month of March. The " register of the many hotels, and they are nearly all open, show a decided increase of arrivals over this time last year. The gueeta now be ing entertained by our famous hcetelries hail from every portion of the country. All eyes are cow centred upon the advent of Easter Sondy, as on that day the wealth and fashion of the large cities flock here to participate in tbe grand parade cf liiks and tatin that haa become eo famous for this seaside retort In the Interim society leisurly whiles away lta time with novels, strolls on the. beach, takes short trips to suburban resorts, all for the ooveted rest from the past winter's campaign. The evenings are delightfully filled In wltb recaptions, tne tneatre ana the dizzy games of euchre, whist, chess and such pwtimee that make a lenten stay -Each week new arrivals add to tha already large population and era another week pasaea there sboaia be tuny ten thonsand new comers to this Island. Among the larger hotels now open are the Rudolph, Lnray, Cnalfont, Haddon Hall, Seaside, Dennis, Traymore, Brighton, Mansion. Of the smaller bosses doing a good business I find the Ponce de Leon, Stickney. Boscobel, Penhnrst, Norwood, Irvington, Westminster and others too numerous to ment'on. A matter of vital Interest to our Camden contingent is the proposed steel esplanade, to supplant the frame structure now hemming in our ocean front. During the present session of the Legislature a bill was introduced allowing thi city to issne bonds to cover the coat of the new walk, to be erected of steel supports and to cover the space most traversed. The oost la estimated to be $183,000, and at the meeting of Conncil the past week this question wss mads a speoial order of business. Everybody Is in favor of the improvement and it is thonght the walk will bs completed by June 1st. It is proposed to build the new walk i from Massachusetts avenue to Texas avenne, forty feet wide, with forty foot spans. The flooring is to be of planking, and ornamental poles to carry the electrto lights are to be another feature. The railings along the structure will be ornamented with sharp points to do awsy with what Is called the "rail bird" habit. Another mnoh talked of improvement la assuming proper shape and Is now ' before the city fathers, that is, the erection of the new City Hall to oocnpy the site of the one destroyed by fire a couple of yeara ago. An ordinance has been Introduced in Counoil setting aside a sufficient sum to purchase the lot npon whioh the opera house stood ana wblcn-also was destroyed with the Hall. . It Is thought by tbose who are in a poeltlon to speak from an authentic standpoint that a grand struoture will be under way before the summer season opens. The Hall is sadly needed, as at present the government is ecattered from one end of the town to the other, there being no building in; the city where the different departments can be housed. A visit to the two railroad depots by your correspondent resulted in finding many contemplated cnaages ana improvements. Among others being pushed by the Resdiug offioials is the equipment of its entipe road with tne block system of signals. This system is eucn that an accident is all but impossible, and it is considered by all railrotd officials toeparfectlon itself. With its donble track the entire length of the road, the Reading may well be considered one of the best in the world. The Pennsylvania people are going to make vast changes in and aronna tneir aepot. ine avenne leading to me uep is to db widened and additional buildings are to be ereoted faolng Atlantic avenue. The march of improvement has certainly struck this town . . A mammoth new hostelria that will bid Jorjthis season s patronags is theSt Charles Hotel, located on the board walk at the foot of St Charles Place. . It is to be a grand struoture, four stories in height and is to contain about- fonr hundred rooms. - It is aoredit to its neighbor, the snlendid Rudolf, located on the oppo site corner. The new addition to the well managed. Haddon Hall completely ohanges the house. The building now reaches to the esplanade and is provided with a splendid portico extending" the entire width of the building. One important change in the amusement line is to be made to the Mnsio Hall on Atlantio avenue, above Kentucky, now owned by genial Louis Kuehnie. He haa leased the property to Louis H. Donnelly, a wealthy resident of th's place, and one who is a thorough theatrical man. Mr. Donnelly holds the right te several standard road attractions, his latest success being -The Widow Hunt." The hall is being closed in and a force of rrescoers and carp snters are changing lta appearance and when completed it will be a first-olas all-year-round play house. The opening will take place about Jsneflst and only the highest class of vaudeville will be booked. The sterling business qualities of the new lessee aae a sufficient guaranty of what may be expected. The wall known Ponce De Leon Is again open under the management of Mrs. Sarah E. Sweeney, whoae qualities aa a hostess are well remembered by nany Camden visitors. The ever popular Stiokney la in full blast, after extensive improvements, and once more Mrs. Laura Y. Stiokney assumes charge of this well known hos-telrie. . The Howell Inn Is another new addition to Chelsea, being located at the sea-view and of Pacifio avenue. Sherman Johnson and his estimable wife expect to take charge on April 4th,' at whieh time they-desire to see all their friends and patrona of their former Hartford Inn. - The sale of the plot at ground at the foo.oft Virginia avenna, upon whioh aite Jackson's bath houses are now looated. to Alfred Adams, Jr., for $150,000, rather set the town agog. The new purohaser Is undecided whether to ereot a handsome .brick and stone hotel or build grand bathing establishment to contain .a thousand rooms. In my next letter I ahall endeavor to give some spice to the many amusement f ntwprtiie being t la rrred for text aeason anil pattiat llat 01 tnote bons ahicb : art going tc entertain over Easter Sunday.

Nowhere else can be found a greater variety of lovely and pio-tnresque scenery, nor such ideal olimate oocdltions. Another reason for its popu larity is its easy accessibility.

At the meeting held March 21 of the Camdsn & Atlantic, the - West Jersey, the West Jersey & Atlantic, the Philadelphia, Marlton & Medford and other railroad oompanies proposing to unite, merge and consolidate their stocks, franchises and properties, it wa- reported that while responses tavorabla to tne consolidation bad been reoelved from more than two- thirds of all the shareholders of each of said ' companies, inclndlnga large ma jority - of ihe 'aggregate- stock held by . Individual holders, the time mentioned, for .sending in prox ieswas hardly sufficient to enable shareholders living at a distance, particu larly In England, to respond. It- was suggested that an extension of time be granted in order that the shareho ldera may have full and ample opportunity for Investigating the subject and conferring with other shareholders before sending in their proxies, and before the stockholders should be convened to Vote on the ques tion. It was thereupon resolved that the time for sending in proxies la favor of said consolidation be extended to April 6th. - Entertained His Friends. Charles B. Mattson entertained a num ber of his young friends at his parent s residence, 026 Mt. Vernon street, on i rl day evening,. the ocoasion being his six teenth birthday.

Tha Repnbliean primary meeliBg was held in the Conacll chamber last night and e interest waa shown than was aver known before at a Republican primary la Merchantviile. Notwithstanding the severe waathsr the room was packed with voters, and a lively Interest was manifested In. the scramble for local offices. After the meeting had been called to order. Wiiliam Longstreth waa elected chairman and H. S Ael secretary ; Capt-in William ti. iee wsa elected jnaje ana Artnnr t Craig and(Wi)lim C. Dix, tellers.

The most hotly contested primary elec tion Stockton has yet experienced passed off In a quiet manner last night, despite the predictions and fears to the contrary, Tbe raging storm proved no barrier be tween the voter and the polls, and the biggest vote ever caat at a primary election was recorded. In the Third ward, where ex-Chief of Police John Zane opposed Councilman Alfred Cramer for renomlna- tlon, the latter was victorious by ma jority of fifty; a great surprise because of the stormy weather, as the opposing faotion olaimed to control" that element , which .generally visit tbe polls regardless of the element?, while the other element, whioh seldom votes at a primary election, it was fear. would remain home. Bnt the latter did not. The situation seemed tc- be folly appreciated as the vote will show, and it is to the taxpayers credit The remainder of the Third ward ticket follows, eaoh one of the delegates to convention receiving maionty cf five votes: Delegates, John B. Davis. Samuel Jaequillard snd Mason T. Younff iBoardof Ednoation, John Crawford Primary Election Board, Judire, Daniel W. Pierce; Inspectors, Newton S. Danen- hower, John G. Polk; CleTk, Horace Kills. Second Ward Town Council, Robert Lee Board of Education, George W. Klrk- brlde ; delegates, W. Oscar Buck, John D Learning, Thomas C. Zane; Town Execu tive Committee, George W. Miles; Ptim ary Election Judge, Howard Snyder Inspector, Andrew J. Morris; Ulerk, John Julier. In this ward the fight was cen tred in the selection ol Kobeit - liee- -over William Llewellyn for Council. In the Firt ward the fight was similar to that in the Second, on the Connoilmanlo choke. in which Aequllla ShimjT was victorious by a majority of 29. iot withstanding the intense feeling that characterised the opening of the campaign, the result last night seems to be accepted with one or two exceptions, and tbe defeated candi dates will fall Into line and work for the success of the ticket. Chief Corkill was on band with his entire force in anticipa tion of threatened disorder, and there waa not the slightest disturbance at either of tbe-polline plaoes. The oonventinn at ihich Town Ulerk, Assessor, collector. Justice of the Peace and Conneilman-at Large will be nominated will meet Thurs day night at tbe headquarters of the Union Republican League. A communication has been received here from Charles Tinker, formerly wellknown and highly respected resident of Dudley, whioh advises his friends that through nnfortnnate circumstances be is held on a terrible charge tbat of accom plica to murder and arson in Lancaster, Pa., where he has resided since leaving Stockton. The story, it goes, seems in itself to exonerate Mr. Tinker from connection with any such an awful charge, and a let ter from his attorney also states that after a thorough Investigation he finds that 11 r. Tinker is wholly innocent.
