14 THE BEOOKLM DAILY EAGLE - SUXDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1895. WALKS ABOUT THE CITY. WURSTER'S ELECTION PREVENTS TIGHE'S REAPPOINTMENT. The Term of the Butler Street Magistrate Expires Next May Extraordinary Growth of the Eighth Ward A North Dakota Man's Experience. The election of Mr. Wursser as mayor dls - poses of the last chance that Police Justice Tighe had cf being reappointed. His terra ! will expire a year from next May, but his j successor will be appointed next July, ten : mouths beii re the new man takes the place. As the mayor, controller and auditor the ap - pointing pover - - - are all Republicans. Justice Tighe has no possible chance. Many be - ! lieve that he would not have been reap - j pointed, even if the power to appoint were ! retained by the Democrats. Justice John i "Walsh, who has discharjv. - J his duties well, ; will probably be the unly Democrat retained, j Even his scalp will be clamored for by the I Republican politicians, but all the lawyers vuut him reappointed. Probably no ward in the city has been built I up as rapidly as the Eighth ward. It is only ; a fev years aj; ihat the lower or southern ' section, bordering on Bay Itidge, was scantily j built up and had little population. Now it j Is different. Large factories have been erect - j ed, which give cmpleyuierit to hundreds of ! men. Fine business blocks now dot the en - ) tire region and many fine and homelike j due.iings aih rn e try block. The section is : singularly favored with railroad facilities. ' It has several surface lines and the elevated In addition to the Thirty - ninth street ferry. ; Early in the spring it is expected that another ferry v.iil be runnii.g from the foot of Fifty - fifth street. The lower end of the ward las a bank, a brunch pon oiiieo. several large ' dry goods and furniture h.mses and, akgeth - . er, has taken on a decidedly metropolitan look. There is one Democrat whose term of office j expires within the next two years who does' not deserve reappointment by Mayor Wurs - 1 ter and the chances are that he will bo turned down. His nieth .d cf cumpaieniuc mi - ! doubled! - lost Mr. Grout a number of votes. ! This is the way he worked. The incident described came under the Rambler's observation. The fellow was introduced by a Democratic acquaintance to an old friend of the latter, a dyed in the wool Republican, who always votes the straight ticket. The first question put by Mr. , was this: "Are you a Republican or a Democrat?' "Republican." "Will you vote for Edward M. Grout for may. r?" "Hardly. 1 made up my mind to vote for Mr. "Wursier some time ago." "As a personal favor to me (he had known the Republican about three minutes) will you vote for Mr. Grout. I am an of the City of Brooklyn and I want to be reappointed." Seeing that he could nut work the "personal favor" racket this office holder took another tack. "I have a wife and family." he said, "and I need the salary of my position for their support. I don't know what I shall do if I lose it. For the sake of my family as an act of charity to me, won't you vote for Mr. Grout." A number of people heard his piteous appeal and the comments of some of them were lar more forcible than elegant. He stood on Fulton street with his heavy great coat buttoned tightly about hrs ample proportions. The collar, upturned, reached to where he had pulled down the rim of his broad felt hat. His hands were Jammed in capacious pockets and his shivering was interrupted only by mighty sneezes that came fast upon each other's heels. It was one of those thick, murky days, not cold and yet wiui a cniuiness mat crawled down one s i back, sending the marrow in the bones way down below freezing point. But women trapsed along the streets in light fall wraps and dresses, while light weight, open coats seemed sufficient for the men. The Rambler saw the man in '.he big coat and his appearance excited ali the milk of human kindness and pity he happened to have about him. "Cold?" he asked, pleasantly. The man in the coat said a number of expressive if inelegant things and sneezed again. "You are a stranger to our climate. I should judge," the Rambler ventured after a pause broken only by the sound of the man's chattering teeth. The conversation needed oiling and the Rambler went on: "Came rroru the sunny South. I should judge I" "X p:" was the laconic reply. "From North Dakota." The Rambler looked puzzled. "Oh, it's the truth," the man went on between his sneezes. "And if I had known what kind of a job the weather was going to put up on me I would have brought on my Buffalo coat and a portable heater. Cold? No. not by your pesky thermometers; but by u man's feelings there isn't a bit of marrow - in my bones to measure it. Why, out in North Dakota I have seen the mercury drop down clear out of sight, and I could shave out in the woodshed in my shirt sleeves. It's dry - out there, but here . Oh, yes. I've taken whisky and quinine by the quart but here the air Is so a choo! a choo: that a choo I a chooo' oo ! a man feels like aehoo! ooo! ' hi Standing outside the trial beard room in the municipal building the other day, talking to Coroner - elect Nason, it developed that he believed in lucky numbers. At that time it was a question as to who was elected coroner, but Mr. Nason was very confident. "My lucky number Is IT and I can't be beat," he asserted. "I come from the Seventeenth ward, was placed in nomination by a Seventeenth ward man. and at 111:17 at night Chairman Fischer declared me the nominee. My name was seventeenth on the ticket, and all in ail 1 am a seventeen candidate and a winner." At this moment two men who had been watching the returns from Democratic Candidate Wuest stepped out into the hall and admitted to Nason that their man was defeated. "You've got 1.700 plurality," said one, and the other nodded his head. "Seventeen again," murmured the Republican candidate. Then he looked at his watch and remarked with pride: "Why. it is just seventeen minutes past four now. My lucky number sticks to me." Charles Heymann is a young Nineteenth warder who came very near being nominated for assembly In the Fourth district Republican convention this year. He Is an enthusiastic Republican, but his brother Late is a Democrat. Both made bets on the election, and now that the returns are in Charles is the happier of the two. Every morning until Thanksgiving Peter Dailey. a Thirteenth ward Democratic politician, has to black his boots, while his brother has to buy him a box of cigars every week until New Years. The unfortunate Late Heymann. in addition to the cigar bet, will be compelled to wheel three different Republicans along Bedford avenue, and he swears that as long as he lives he will never make another fool bet. Charles, on the contrary, smiles and says nothing. The ticket transfer system on the Brooklyn Heights system is undoubtedly a saving to the corporation, but it has its drawbacks for the public. Here Is an experience the Rambler had recently, and citizens by scores can give testimony. The rider rode up town on a Fulton street CRr and was transferred to a Nos - trand avenue car. All the seats in the Nos - trand avenue car' were occupied and about a dozen persons were standing when he entered. On delivering the transfer ticket, to the conductor the latter was asked for a transfer ticket to the Gates avenue line. Instead of doing so at once the conductor went on collecting tickets, and received several requests for transfers to the same line the Gates avenue. When Gates avenue was reached the conductor was still in the forward part of the car, and he was still collecting fares. The result was that half a dozen passengers had to squeeze their way through the persons standing In order to get to the conductor. Meanwhile the car was kept waiting until the conductor should punch the tickets. The reason why the conductor does not at once give a transfer to a passenger Is probably that he is anxious to collect all the fares lest some passenger should reach his destination and get off without' paying. The remedy for the delay should be an easy one. If the conductor should at once give the passenger a transfer on receiving a ticket or a fare he could quickly do so. The present system overworks the conductor and irritates the passengers. RAMBLER. 78 to 84 SVSyrtle Ave., Brooklyn.

GOVERNOR ELECT Bit AD LEY DELIVERS AN APPROPRIATE ADDRESS. Atlanta, Ga., November 16 By reason of the split in the board of women commi3ionen from Kentucky, several sets cf Kentucky day exercises wore hold at tho exposition grounds to - day. Governor Elect Bradley of Kontucky; Governors Hastings of Pennsylvania, Greenhalire of Massachusetts and Lip - pitt of I'.hode Island made short speeches. The address of the Hon. W. O. Bradley, eover - nor - elct of Kentuccy, was tho feature of the oecasion. He snid in part: Kentucky and Louisviilo u;iv - ; kiivlly frreetlns to Georgia and Atlanta. We are not unmindful or the honor sliown im on this day. No two I statns of th South art more ileepiy impressed witli ttie f.ict that ?reat I'oramxrcinl prosperity ; awaits them nnd no two, 1 trust anil Believe, will more earnestly and zealously labor to ' accomplish grand results. To give Kentucky i the meed of urRise to which she is entitled, le bryoud the power or toncue or pen. Her hU - . tory is a pact of tiie nation' history. If she had done nothinK more than Rive to the world Clay and Lincoln she would I be immortal. Kentuoky and G - - orcta, in deed the whole South are awakening to the possibilities or the future. In this seotion wo have not accomplished w at mignt have been accomplished, but the future will pror that we nave now a new South; a boath devoted to improvements, a South that has broken its ohaiut, and that stands forth in unfettered manhood. Whtle we love the South and are devoted to its Interests we rejoice that sectional lines have been substantially erased, and that to - day w nave in reality no south, no north, no east, no wast, but one country, grand and indivisible, to which every citizen owes his highost allegiancei Vold tnat vour giltea Grady were living. tna he might see the swift opproaching realization whioli his prophetic words portrayed. Hi oatrlotlo utterances have not been forgotten, but form a part and parcel of the inspiration of this occasion." After drawing a picture of the events 6f tho war and of the years following he said: 'We pause not to dlsouss the causes that led to that strife, nor the motives by which men wore actuated; we know that In this broad land there is not one who does not rejoice that the Union was preserved. We put behind us forever thi bitterness of tho past, and shall kuup constantly before us the glories which are our common heritage and the magnificent possibilities of the future. Henceforth there will be no contest between us, exaept as to who can do most to build up tuo country, w ho can do most to develop its resources, who ean do most to protect its honor, woo oan . do most to preserve it institutions." The defendant in a case of assault and battery, when asked what he said to the plaintiff, .replied: "I said. 'Go home.' " "How did you say It?" "With the toe of my boot," wasthe answer. Tid Bits. 1
