A very iar0'e number of v.hal miht bo called the old Cleveland flu:, m - ;:i were present that night and assur d me afi - . - rwartl that they bad voted lor me. I reeollerl distinctly that several gentlemen aro?o on the lbier at the mecliiitr and said they wtra netv members vvho hail voted for .Mr. lioody, but wanted to make, mr election u nam mous. The collection of dues to the club lias always been difllcuU, and, nlons with ibn notice of this meeting for iho eb - ction of , nict'is, was sent a fipecial notice tiiat tho treasurer would bo present to collect dues from 7:3 - 3 i'. M.. uu.l that 110 member would be admitted unless his dues were pai 1. '1 bis noticw was no; sent by mo or after any con.iultation with me, but vsa the uualono. The members elected this y,ar are now on the; roll booh of the club who Mlij they are, wnat they are, and tli"ir haancial f taudicr; can ea. - ily be ascei talni'd. I believe Hint they compare favorably v. lib any other e - pnil nuin - ber of gentlemen elected, at any time tbe existence of the elub. Cel - miii if is that any iinpliei - tion that the dues of any persuu wero eilbcr j.aitl by mo or by one friendly to m, - is aluur Ily false. This last is iu auswer to stater.. cuts heretofore initio iu the press lo lhal eflec!. In regard to the .N'ominatiuff Committee I would Bay Uitit there was expressed last year, when the first vote iu the presidency was a tie, lhal her atflor no uornine.tihf,' commineu should be appoiuie 1 by tho Chair or that iu any event no report sh aiil 1 bo considered binding ou tho elub or any inembci' of it. With that idea iu view 1 appolutul a uon partisan committee, three of whom, it seem?, inudo it their busluesa to consult everyono in the club desirous of a change and no one in favor of my reelection. Certain it is that two members of the committee wore requested to call r.t a place which had no existence, and iu their absence such agreement as took place was carried out. The chairman of the commiiteo informed me ihut tht - ro would bo another meeting, and there was on tho same uiplit that the club met to celebrate tno Demoeratie victories. Also, tho chairman at - sured mo that he would find another date, when mure time would be Eiven to the matter. Tnis was not done, and such unanimity as took, place was the ie - ult. The first time that a pi - eminent member of tho club, who Bluce heltl thu ofllce for three suce'ssivo l - i iu - , ran for tho olTlce I nominated him, with his cou - Be.ut and the cttiiiiuittee nominal! an au 1 bo came within two votes of btiiu - el. t 1 - d. I do not think under these ciroi::u, bailees and many others that I, or any member ol a lieuio. ratio bede, is bound by a nominating commUtee. Certainly, if 1 bad wished it, 1 would have 11pp. tinted a committee among my friends iu tho club, gentlemen - who have been active and present at tho club meetings during the year ami entirely familiar Kith Its needs and de - ires. The charge that 1 agreed or implied a consent to Mr. 11 o ly's nomination by tho committee is a mistake; I expressly refused that request ma le 1110 by the chairman ef the COlnmltloo beforo its final isl't - '.iiiL' nud I refused (Several members of tho club, each of whom ma le the pame request; at each Interview I staled my reasons very distinctly and could not have le en ml understood by any 0110; I staled on the Hem - of the club on election night that I had been ri - quested to decline to run. but 1 had refused. it has been BUggastct to me that So mi miaippro - neiibiou or mistak' - has been male, and such may Do the case, but I knoiv of 110110 0:1 my part. f'KnbUKICK ii.

A ifevr move Uy the Promoters ot tbe Cablo Itiiad. The flght for tho possession of Central avenue for a cablo road has como boforo the courts ngaln, this time in a now form. It will bo remembered that ihe combination of roads in which Mr. William HIehardsou Is Interested attempted to lay down a branch of their routos through Central avenue, but wore defeated In the attempt by the Broad - way liailroad Company of tho Eastern District, who claimed a prior occupation of tho thoroughfare under their charter. Tho claim was uphold by the courts, and tho result was to atop tho operation of the cable cars. In the now procoodlug Attorney General O'Brien comes Into court, stating that a petition has beon presented to him by property owners on Central avenue asking him to hogln proceedings to annul tho charter of tho Uroadway Company so far as Central avouuo is concerned, for it failure to operate a lino of care on that thoroughfare. It is in obedience to that petition that the Attorney General acts. He asks leave to begiu'ault against tho company for tho purpose indicated. The application was made beforo Judgo Cullon to - dny, Johnson & Lamb appearing for tho Attorney General. Doeision was reserved. Attached to tho application were a number of afrldavits to tho effect that Central avenue properly owners nro opposed to tho laying of tracks on that street by tho Broadway company, as it would only convoy passengers to tho Grand street and rwenty - third streot ferries in the Eastern District, whereas if tho cablo company Is allowed to construct its ronlo it will enablo them to reach tho bridge.

The Cass Against number Armstrong Hoping to Assume a Serious Aspect Imperiling the Lives of .llnny Pupils. The tide of battle still surges fiercely in and around the young ladioa' school of tho Mlssos Ely, 142 Columbia heights. Four of tho young ladies wero attacked by typhoid fevor. Sanitary Engineer Charles F. Win, 'ate tlirow oil on tho flamo by declaring that the sieknoss was duo to defective plumbing and that tho dofectlYO plumbing was duo to Mr. James Armstrong, a well known local plumber. Yesterday the Board of Health took a hand In the dispute. Mr. William J. Kocho, a sanitary inspector, declared that Armstrong was a good plumber and Wingate a mere thoorlst In sanitary matters. Ho oxprossod a preference for tho word of .Mr. Armstrong and said that the circular of tho Misses Ely explaining tho closing of the snhool told an unmitigated falsehood when It declared that tho Board of Health had mado an examination of the plumbing in tho Ely school and had pronounce ! It good and safo. Commissioner Ottoraon then emphatically supported Mr. Rocho's statement on this point. Plumber Armstrong also had his say, declaring that the Ely's wero after cheap work and got it, but that what ho did for them was 30und and safo. He laughed at any proposition that ho should stand the expenso the Ely sl3ters had him put to. Whatever defective plumbing there was did not, ho said, occur in his work. To - day tho conflict intensified and the Ely's and W'lngate and tiie Health Department and Pturabor Armstrong raity safely bo etid to have fairly met in the shock of battle. Messrs. Wiagato and Ely took on innings aud both visited tho Eaglk offlco armed and ready for the fray, Mr. WTngate brought with him a design showing Just what he claims Plum' er Armstrong did with the pipus to make people sick. If his statement is correct and ho is willing lo make affidavit to it, thon the plumber did a job much better calculated to 1111 tho houso with than to free it from foul odors. Mr. Winate's diagram showed that a plpo had been deliberately plucked whoro, by repairing tt would have been as sorrieeahlo as over, the plugging saving expense but literally shutting off all outlet for foul odors. Iu a letter to tho Kaii.k Mr. Wingate among other things says : "If a scoundrel gains access to a dwolling and conceals a dynamite bomb in it so as to explodo aud maim or destroy tho inmates, tho occupant of the houso would naturally soek redress from thopropor authorities and ask an investigation of tho facts with a view toarrostiug and punishing the culprit. Iu the present instance tho bomb has been found niter tho injury has boen committed. There aro not only four innocent victims, but tho indirect 103s to tho Misses Ely is incalculable. The muKor of tho bomb acknowledge; lhat it is his handiwork and tlio bomb itself has been preserved and can bo reon aud tosted. 1 have the pipes at my offlco In Now York. j Tho defects which aro alleged to have caused tho sickness wore all found In connection with the new work, which Armstrong alleges ho performed. I have charged that tlio worst was criminally bad, but is it not tho duty of tho Board of Health to settle tho disputed point by an investigation before publishing private communications and in lulging iu personalities and angry recrimination? All of Iho defective portions of tho plumbing taken out of the house aro now at my ofllco and everyone to whom they have been shown pronounce them unexampled specimens of botching.

PAT IS MISSING. The Distinguished Penman Cannot Be Found, Dr. Krotzsehmnr Admits That Othnr Frauds May Have Boon Perpetrated Is the Contmtgsion a Mill for (Mudlng Oat Incapabic3 J Mr. Patrick Stanton, formerly of Wythe, but now of Kent aveuuo.the 97; per cent, civil serv - lco crack who can neither road nor write, did not appear before Commissioner Krotzschmar's Fire Department CommUtee last night. Of course ho did not. No one with the brains of a peasant thought ho would. What is worse, he completely snubbed tho commlttoa, bocause bo sent no notlco that he should not nttend, although, according to the secretory, he had promised to send word If ho docldcd not to como. This morning tbo committee had hoard nothing from him. The socretary will notify him to appear next Wodnesday evening. Should he fail then to appear the full Commission will strlko his name from the ollglble list. Whether or not legal proceedings shall bo instituted against him will at that tlmo bo decided. Mcanwhllo the mystery surrounding the whole business continuos. Dr. Krotischmar is indiguant because of the editorial lu tho Eaoi.e of yesterday upon tho case, and particularly those portions of tho article reflecting upon himsolf. Ho says ho certainly Is not to blame for Stanton'a non appearand or for any irregularities that there may be In the transaction. There woro 120 men oxaminod by the committee, aud he could not remember irhethor Patrick Stanton was one of thom. Ho did know that the man who made out tho examination papors bearing Stanton's name was entitled to tho percentage credited to him. Any Intelligent persou could soo this by looking at tho papora. Ho admlttod that if fraud had boen practiced In this case 1c might havo boen practiced In connection with other cases before tho Commission, and ho suggested as a romedy that hereafter in all such proceedings the applicants be compelled to sign their names to the roports of tho surgeons' puy&ienl examination. This precaution could be takon in all cuses of applications for the Fire and Pollco departments. As Dr. Krotscumar says, there is possibility of fraud in the past, and tho probability that It has beon practiced In other cases than that of Stanton is Btrong. The Civ)) Service authorities say they know nothing of thom. Where candidates are examined in largo numbers It ia not difficult for somo of thom to havo dummies, and tho simpler tho examination the easier to practice tho fraud. In this case, the competitive oxnminntlon was confined to penmanship, elomentary arithmetic and knowledge of Brooklyn's stroot3, buildings, etc Tho I candidato.whoovor ho was, mado one mlslako under tlio last hoad, iu locating the Central Grammar school at Court and Sehormerhorn streets. Olhor - j wise his percentage would havo been oven higher j than It appoars now. Tho handwriting Is the samo in all parts of tho examination papors, showing that tho mau who wrote tho signature "Patrick Stanton" It is a round, clerkly hand, and if Patrick Stanton, of Kout avonuo, Is caimblo of it ho has no business to bo wrestling with planks over lu Cross & Austin's lumbor yard or auywhero else. It is boyond qunstion that Slanton can neitbor read nor write. Not ono of his companions In tho neighborhood whoro ho resides ovor saw him exor - clso olther of those accomplishments. Soveral mouths ago ho was in compauy with a party of drivers, in I'. McCleary's saloon, on liont avetiuo, near Washington. Ono of tho party wroto the namos of all prosont along tho marglu of a noivs - papor. btauton, whoso name was among tho rest and who was boastiug that ho was soon going to become a flroman, was chaffed on his ignorance, and tlio man who wrote tho names hold up tho paper beforo him aud ehnllougod him lo pick out his own imnio. Stanton could not toll ono namo from another, although ho mado soveral offorts to pick it out. Whon the bartender in McCleary's related this Incident to au E.uir.i; roporlor this morning he added: "I havo known Stanton for years and I am sure ho cannot read nor write. County Clerk Kanken paid for his tuition at Wright's Business Collego, but he stayod thoro ouly a few nights. He has got himsolf luto troublo by oponlug his mouth and blowing too much. If he had kept quiot and hadn't boasted so much about becoming a fireman ho'd have gotten in all right. But when tho boys hoard about how elogautly he pnssod the examination thoy got to wondering how It was, seoing that ho could nolthor read uor writo, and somo of tlio other taction horo that is opposod to Kidgway aud Kankon let tho thing out." Stanton bears the reputation of a mild bragger and also as a slugger. Ho has fought on sevoral occasions lu Temperance Hall on Kout avetiuo. The identity of tho person who Impersonated Sinn - ton iu tho Civil Sorvlce examination romulns a mystery. Freo Couguod as ho Is about most things, on this matter Stanton has kopt his mouth closed, and It Is doubtful if oven his intimate friouds knew of his sohomo. A LIVELY BRIDGE RUNAWAY.

Arriral of Some of the Survivors of the III Fated Slcaiuor - A Lous Islaad City Man's Experience. The pnssengors of tho ill fatod steamer Scholten, of the Netherlaiidj - Amoriean Steamship Company's lino, arrived at the wharf at the foot of York street, Jorsoy City, this morniug, ou board of the steamer Calaud, of the samo line. Thore wero twouty - seven steerage aud threo cabin passengers. Agent Van den Toorn was on the dock to receive the people. Whllo the ship was being moored the rescued oue3 Btood by tho sldo of tho rail and talked with their friouds, who had como to moet them. Artist Henry It. Konyon, ef Providence, If. L, stood near the companionway with Ins brother, and whon tho reporters woro allowed to go on board he told the story of tho wreck In a dramatic manner. He said: x I was In my bunk at tho tlmo tho collision occurred and did not fool the shock. I was aroused by seme one crying: "Arouse ! Arouso 1 Tho vessel is sinking I" I got out of my bunk in a hurry, und, dressing as best I could during the swaying of tho ship back and forth, I was soon on deck. There a eceue of confusion met my gaze. Men were rushing about lu a wild manner. Women woro crying aud wringing their hand3 in anguish. Tho crow woro panic strlckon and did not seem to bo oboyiug the orders of tho captain and officers, who wero all at their posts and doing all that thoy could to help tho passengers. About tho crow 1 cannot say much. Ono boat was lowered and tho passengers made such a mad rush for it that I concluded that the safest plau would be to stay ou the ship. I remained ou tho sldo until tho Scholten weul down, whon I was thrown into tho water. I had succeeded In getting a lifo presorvor. I was drawn dowu with tho vossol, but the suction was very slight and I soon eamb to tho top. 1 Immediately swam away and kept afloat by catching ou to portions of the wreck. I was In tho water for about nn hour. Every llttlo whilo I was compelled to swim rapidly to keep cloar of people who wore coming up out of tho water, Jumping on my back aud trying to drag me down, sv can tell you tho experience was a fearful one anil I thought that every minute I would go down as my strength was glviug out. Onco I got between tho Ebro and a small boat aud camo near being crushed, as tho current was very strong, bill 1 managed to escapo. Tho Ebro was lumbor ladonod and her captain ana officers throw tho lumber overboard so that the people could get hold of it. Alter coming up from my berth ou to tbe dock of tho Scholten a remarkablo tight mot my eyes. A tall German was standing iu tho center of the deck, tiring oft a revolver and shouting in stentorian tones. "Trust lu mo and bo saved." Tho poor follow was crazod with fright. Ho lost his life. Auothor pitiful and heartrending sight was tho loss of a young lady named Anua DeYijver. Sho was about l'J years of ago and was vory handsome. Ono of the stewards wa holding hor over the aide of tho vessel and trying to lower her by means of a ropo around hor waist into a boat. Just as sho was about to roach tho boat it was carried away by tho swell, aud sho and tho steward went down. Another passenger was Baron Fernando Do C'les. Ho was rescued au.l returned to his hnmo iu Italy. Ho had a sachel in hi3 hand which contained X5U0, and was standing near me on the Scholten. One of tho crow rusbe I up. Jerked tlio sachel from his hand and tlirow it overboard. 1 losl sight of tho baron and did uot see him again until wo reached the shore. At Duvor 1 was taken to the Sailors' Home, and remained there uutll wo wero taken to Rotterdam. There people met us ami wo wero given an ovation. I am glad to got homo aud hope that I will never havo such an experiouco again. I go direct to Providence today. Mr. C. D. - omouivsky, a carvor, who resides ac 155 Twelfth street, Lcug Island City, was also ou board the Sclioiten aud arrived to - day. His wifo and two littlo girls woro ou the wharf to greet him. When tbo children caught sight of their father sfiudiug near tho rail of tho Calaud thoy danced with gleo, clapped their hands audcriod out with Joy: "There's my papa." The minute tho gang plank was run on board Mr. Hromouvvsky was the first one to roach the wharf. The reunion of the littlo family was auJifTecting sight. As soon as no had had his baggage examined by tlio Custom House officer he told tlio following story: On the night of tho collislou I was in my berth aud did uot feel tiie shock. I was awakuued by tho crlo3 of the passengers. When I got ou dock tho Seuolten was leaning to one side and tno people woro struggling to get tho life preservers. 1 succeeded in getting a lit'o preserver, but it had no buckle on it. One of the officers told mo to put it on. Tho vessel com monced to tink rapidly and lwas soon thrown in to tne water. Knowing tbo result of a vessel sinking and fearing that 1 would be drawn down with it. I swam rapidly away from tho wreck, aud managed to Keep anoat until I was nicked uii by the Ebro. Tho wator was very cold aud I was quite numb when i was rescued. 1 saw people go dowu all around me. Somo had life preservers whilo others had none, and did not keep afloat very long. Tho crew carol only for Ihoinsolvos aud did nothing for tho passengers. The captain of tho Ebro, after I had been picked up by one of hor boats, gavo mo a blanket and a placo to rest In his cabin. 1 lost overythiug I had with me. Charlos Miles, a young Englishman, from Rod Hill, Surrey, England, was rescued by tho Ebro. When ho lauded this morning ho had no one to greet him. After somo littlo questioning ho finally told tho following story: I whs in the saloon reading whon I was startled by a shock, which throw mo from my seat to tho floor; it seemed as if the vessel had been cut into pieces; she commoncod to sluk beforo I was ablo to reach tho deck; I could uot socuro a life presorvor, and after I got luto tho water I kept afloat by clinging to tho parts of tho wreck until I was picked up by tho Ebro; tho Scholten's crow acted in a boaJtly manner: one boat was lowered and got off without any ot the passengers; women wore treatod brutally, and if tho sailors had obeyed orders moro people would have been savod. Tho stoorago pa3sengors of tho Sclioltou woro takon to Castle Garden by the company's ogent. They will bo paid a sum of mouoy aud will bo sent to their friends. A CASE OF ALLEIiED RRUTALITY.

She would uot surrender my trunks until I got an officer to go and com pel hor to do so. '' When told tho uuture of the chargo against hor husband Mrs. Dunn said: "Why, I thought he settled that with Mr. Nelson.

The Revolver Lawyer To - Tarns Flourished in Court. He Told ihe Jnd - o it Was Nut loadei aad There VTa a Shudder rTh; n tha lVitneia Said it Wa. For three days Chief Judge Clement and a Jury in the City Court have been listening to unsavory testimony In tho sun of Sarah ,!. Brown, of 33 Filnt streot, against sirs. Aues Sehleifer, of 288 Tnirteonth street, for JIO.OOO damages for slandor. The suit, as has already been stated in tho Eaulb, is iho outgrowth of a similar action breught by Mrs. Annie M. Pollock agaiust Mrs. Schleifer. Robert Pollock, the man who accidenially shot aud killed Captain Bourne, of tho Second Precinct, is the husband of Mrs. Pollock, aud it is due merely lo good fortune lhat tho present slander suit did not terminate iu a tragedy. On Thursday Mrs. Brown was asked by Lawyer George F. Elliott, who appears for tho defendant, if she had uot sold Mrs. Sclileifer a pistol. Sho answered that sho had not. Mr. Elliott then turned t, Mrs. Sebleifor and obtained from her a pistol, which he handed to tho witness, poiutlug it directly at her. Sho said she never saw tho weapon before. Judgo Cloment, who remembered the killing of Captain Dourno and the connection of Pollock with tbe pre. - unt suit, said: "Is that pistol loaded, Mr. Elliott'.''' "No. your Honoi - ,' said the lawyer. "tVeil, you should handle it moro carefully, v.hother it is loaded or not," sai l tuo Judge, and tha weapon was returned to Mrs. Schleifer. Yosterday aftoruoou Mrs. Schleifer was ou tho witness stand aud Lawyer M. L. Towns, who appears for .Mrs. Brown, knowing that Sirs. Schleifer hal the pistol and apparently to create a sensation, said to hor: "Have you a pistol secreted iu your saouol ?'' " Yes, 1 have," said Mrs. Schleifer, taking it out and handing it to Mr. Towns, i'liat geutleman, who is always dramatic, flourished the weapon above his head. His hand was on tho triggor and as ho proceeded to cross oxaniiuo the witness ho pointed tho pistol in all directions, now covering tho witness with it, then the judge and Jury. Judgo Clement watched him for a moment and asked: " Is that pistol loaded, Mr. Towns'!'" "No, your Honor," said tho lawyer. " H is loaded, Judge," said .Mrs. Schlelfor. "There is a charge in it." At thK announcement thoro was something like a general ohudder. Chief Judgo Clem. mi ordered the pistol to be given lo Ofllcer .Malloy, and thou commented severely on the carelessness of lawyers who allow their clients to briug loaded pistols luto court The case was then proceeded with, and will be given to the Jury this afternoon. Mr. Henry R. Van Kenren, who is superintendent of tolls on the Brooklyn Bridge, and has full charge of tho tickets, was seeu by an Eaole reporter this morning. Ho said: "1 believe there is absolutely nothtug in Mrs. Se:. letter's story. About four months ago sho told tiie woman iu chargo of the laiios' waiting room on tho bridge that .Mrs. Brown was engaged in selling counterfeit bri lgo tickets. At that tiu.o wo fully investigaied the manor aid found notning.
