PRICE ONE CENT. MCKAY WINS VICTORY IN LOCAL OPTION FIGHT Gaunt Bill Reconstructed So as to Embody Main Features of Mackay Bill Local Optionists Satisfied and Hopeful. Trenton, Jan. 31. The strengthening of the Gaunt local option bill and the incorporation of changes which are, likely to win new friends for that measure are going to be the probable results of a series of conferences that hare been going on this week In Trenton among members of the Legislature and representatives of the New . Jersey Anti-Salooni League, of which Rev. J. K. Shields Is the superintendent and Rowland Munro the general counsel. An Immediate effect of these conferences will probably be the reconstruction of the Gaunt bill in the Senate Committee on Municipal Corporations and the incorporation into that bill of changes advocated by Senator Wm. B. Mackay, Jr., of Bergen, who Introduced a local option bill of his own about the same time that the Gaunt local option bill was offered last week. The net result of the conference is a victory for Senator Mackay. The Mackay bill was introduced in accordance with the campaign pledges made by the Senator when he made the fight that resulted in his election last November by the largest majority ever given ft Senate candidate in Bergen. One of the points urged by Mackay and provided for in his bill is. that the people of a municipality ehould have the chance of voting on local option at a general election instead of at a special election. Among other things, Senator Mackay. argued that a heavy expense would be saved by having the refer-endum vote at a general election. Another point urged by the Bergen Senator was that the governing body of the municipality, and not the county judge, should pass upon the validity of the petition calling for the referendum election.' TYia AntLCglnnn T.nao-IIA nfTtnlnlsi It was announced today, have agreed to support the Mackay idea of having the referendum vote taken at a general election with a proviso that a specis' election may be ordered by the governing board in case or an overwhelming demand for such special election.. - The, Bergen Senator's contention .4hajjtb geveroing' o4rather"thaH the county' Judge should pass-upon the validity of the petition calling for a referendum has jalso been ac cepted. .- 'There, are a few more details Btill to be arranged, but the opinion today was that the way had been cleared fori the easy passage of the bill In the Senate. It is believed that the bill will also gain friends In the Assembly, even if all the needed votes may not be secured in the Assembly this year. Senator Mackay's contention is that the Gaunt bill as finally .reconstructed and revised will be a real home rule measure. Several additional changes will be made In committee Monday. VON HALLE CAME VERY NEAR FACING CHARGE OF CONTEMPT Counselor James S. De Turck, of Hackensack, appeared before Vice-Chancellor Griffin in the Jersey City Chancery Chambers yesterday afternoon ready to press a charge of contempt of court against Millard Von Halle, a wealthy salesman of Morse-mere, for falling to keep up payments of $25 a week temporary all-nony to his wife, Mrs. Ethel Von Halle, a prominent society woman of Bergen County, who formerly was a settlement worker in New York, but who. it is said, is now a movie actress. The lawyer stated that since November 14, last, Von Halle has not paid his wife a cent. He said that the salesman owed a total of $375. After a conference with counsel for Von Halle, it was decided to postpone the contempt proceedings. Mrs. Von Halle sued her epouse for absolute divorce. At the hearing In the Jersey City Chancery Chambers. Miss Ethel Van der Hoff, formerly a maid in the Von Halle home, testified that the salesman on a number of occasions had been unduly Intimate with her. The maid wag subsequently indicted for forgery.

LONG BRANCH IS AGAINST THE KATES JITNEY LEGISLATION Trenton, Jan. 31. With the view to having the Kates Jitney Act amended bo that Long Branch may license jitney drivers without submit ting them to the securing and turn ishlng of a $5,000 bond, members of the City Commission of that munict pality were at the State House here yesterday and last evening. City Commissioner John W. Flock, who witlT erimmlssWrier" FrUnkr' HowlahdV has been opposing the adoption of an ordinance by Long Branch, which would require the drivers to furnish the bonds, explained that)h6t having a belt trolley line the municipality can make great use of the "jit- nles," but the restrictions In the Kates Act are such that the operation of the machines in the city is dis couraged. Long Branch would also favor an amendment to the law per mitting third class municipalities to charge a flat license fee of $15 or $25, instead of the present arrangement, which is five per cent, of the gross receipts.

The chairman of the Transportation Committee of the Community Council had his attention brought recently to the matter of discourtesy of trolley conductors to patronsejof their lines, and particularly residents of Hackensack. The conductor In question was extremely dlsroureous to two ladies who were alighting from the Paterson line car. and was very Impertinent and insolent to a member of the Council who undertook to remonstrate upon the treatment accorded the women. The usual prompt attention was given to the matter by the chairman of this committee and very satisfactory results obtained. Upon receipt of the complaint, Mr. Engle. supervisor of the Paterson and rassalc Division, Immediately sus pended the conductor and offered to bring him to Hackensack to apologise for his conduct. This was sub sequently done and the man was re instated at the request of the mem ber of tho Council, who felt that he would probably profit by this lesson and become a better employee. The Council should be given great credit for its efforts in a much-needed reform along these lines. If our citi- nens would report similar cases of in civility to C. W. Terhune, giving full particulars In writing, something very effective might be done by the Council. A complaint with the back lng of anjrganlxation of standing such as the Community Council of Hackensack will, of course, carry greater weight than one coming from an individual. Help the Council to make Hacken sack a "Good Place in Which to Live."

That she abused the lad without provocation and apparently bore little love Is another allegation, although no one, It Is said, would admit having seen her strike him.
