TOWN AND VILLAGE NEWS MATTERS THAT INTEREST XiONG ISLAND FOLKS. First Detailed Description of a Flodger Party Ever Published The Head Hooker's Narro - Vv - Squeak Notes of Minor Happenings. A very recent Incident of startling import at Glen Cove wa3 made known to the public yesterday. In that village is a Flodger club. The word flodger is probably unknown outside of. a limited area in that section o Long Island except by those who have been guests of tho club or heard the expression from some native. The origin of the word is unknown, but It is said to have been first used in the cabin of an old vessel at the cove landing about thirty years ago. A flodger Is a savory diBh of the stew or pot roast variety, the meat of which is somo sort of fowl; but the principal feature of a genuine flodger aside from the ingredients is that no part shall have beeen bought or donated; In other words, all must have been stolen, though It 1b an unwritten lkw of tho neighborhood to class flodgering not as ordinary thieving. It will thus be seen that tho title bestowed on the chief of the club, head hooker, is not inappropriate. The flodger season at Glen Cove was formally opened for the season of 1894 95 on Friday night, and, as is customary, the head hooker was expected to provide the poultry. As no raids had been previously made on chicken roosts little ' troble was anticipated and tho usual precautionary measure of lookouts not taken. The mistake came lit erally within a halr'B breadth of resulting fatally for the chief of the flodger club; but, as the sequel shows, he was equal to the emergency and worthy the position he holds. He had quietly effected an entrance to a well stocked roost by cutting away a strip of wire netting and unjolnted the necks of five fat pullets when an old rooster ho had seized by mistake, but did not want, owing to evident age, gave a loud, uncanny screech. The chief knew his time to skip with his bag of pullets had come, and he was none too soon. A window of a nearby room in the upper story of a workshop In which slept a dusky man servant was raised and without warning the report of two barrels of a gun seemingly fired at once rang out. tn relating' his experience at supper the following night the chief said it seemed to him as though a thousand shot struck around him on the wire netting through which he was crawling with his bag of chickens. He was thoroughly frightened, but experience' last season had taught him to keep moving and by no means to drop the bag, as if he returned without spoil his name would bo stricken from the roll of membership unless he made a future and more succcessful raid. The chief was not Injured so far as he knew and soon arrived at the picking room, where 'i n !)pnar!ince croar.od a commotion. "Where Is the back of your hat brim?" was the first remark made to tho completely pu - .ipuu out cinef. Taking oft" his hat he found the remark to be a pertinent one, as the entire back part of his hat band was gone, and further investigation showed three holes in his coat collar made by good sized shot. "No wonder shot seemed thick and close," he remarked. This occurrence was kept back as long as possible, but two over zealous new members let the story out In an unguarded moment. RAISING STRONG'S CAUSEWAY. Flushing and Newtown Making a Needed Improvement. The highway commissioners of the towns of Flushing and Newtown are Jointly wrestling with the question of widening and otherwise improving Strong'3 causeway, an important thoroughfare connecting these two towns. The commissioners recently appointed by County Judge Garretson of Queens county to investigate tho condition of the causeway reported at a joint meeting of the town boards of Newtown and Flushing, held on Wednesday, that its condition was such as to warrant extensive repairs. The present width of the causeway is about eighteen feet, but in many places the action of the tide upon thb embankments has lessened this considerably, and there are certain places where it would be practically impossible for two teams to pass each other. The road is not only dangerous because of its narrowness, but also because it Is gradually sinking. The salt meadow is almost like a quicksand. Repeated soundings have revealed the fact that the distance from the surface to hard bottom is from forty to sixty feet, and the difficulties attending a permanent repair under these circumstances can readily be seen. Two years ago the grade of the road was raised three feet at an expenditure of over $1,000. At present the road has settled almost to a level with the meadows, and every high tide washes over it. The road, it is said, settles every year from six to eight inches. The specifications upon which the commissioners base their report provide for making the roadbed fifty feet wide and raising tho grade. It is estimated that it would cost about $5,250 to fill in the causeway. The ex - penso would have to be borne by the towns of Flushing and Newtown. Another computation as to the probable cost of this Improvement is fixed at ?25,000. It is thought that this amount would be necessary to complete the proposed repairs. The Brooklyn City railroad contemplates running its cars over this causeway, and it is said that they will make such repairs as are necessary for their trackB. The commissioners will hold another meeting in a few days, at which it is expected some definite action will be taken in the mat - tor. BTJNCKE WAS NOT NOMINATED. A Wrangle Breaks Up a Whitestone Business Meeting. Hardly a public meeting of any kind is held in the village of Whitestone without Its interesting episode. One of the most exciting political meetings ever held in that village was that of the improvement association Thursday night, which was called for the purpose of nominating three village trustees. The session lasted until midnight and finally adjourned without making a single nomination. The social, political and business relations of each man mentioned for tho office were discussed with vigor. The names of Messrs Buncke, Joyce and Yarston were suggested and an informal ballot was taken. Winfield 3. Overton emphatically opposed the nomination of Mr. Buncke on the ground that he was an employe of the Long Island railroad. He expressed his belief that if any difficulties should arise between the village and tho railroad company pressure would be brought to bear upon Mr. Buncke and that he could not act as his conscience dictated. A spirited discussion ensued, and the meeting closed abruptly with a motion to adjourn. In consequence, the Improvement association will have no ticket in the field, as the limit of time for making nominations by any association is twelve days prior to the election. On Thursday night the limit expired. The members of the improvement association are waxing wroth over this state of affairs. Village Notes of Interest. The village of Whitestone will go through the ordeal of another local election in a few weeks. The village trustees have called a special meeting, to be held December 10, at which the taxpaylng residents will be given an opportunity to vote on appropriating J1.000 for a fire alarm system, $1,000 for repairing the house of the hook and ladder company and $500 for fire hose. The question of opening certain important thoroughfares in the village will also bo submitted to the people. Owing to the fact that the village Is continually in financial straits, this course of submitting these matters to the taxpayers has been deemed advisable. The Koreus Rowing club of Flushing contemplates the erection of a new club house. and it is reported that an eligible sito has al ready been acquired for that purpose. The nlans for the new building Include a bicycle and amusement ball, bowling alleys, gymna sium and women s dlnlngroom and parlors. Miss Ella C. Murphy, a recent graduate of the Flushing hospital, was married on Thursday to Martin T. Gleason of Flushing. The ceremony was performed in St. Michael's church by the Rev. Father Cronin. Miss Eleanor Cannor and S. Louis Merrl - man wore married on Thursday at the residence of Captain I. J. Morritt of Whitestonn. The Rov. C. M. Stewart officiated. A wedding breakfast was enjoyed by the gue - its aftor the ceremony. Tho United States engineer battalion, three companies of which aro stationed at Wlllet's Point and one at West Point, will don black uniforms, with orange facing and stripes, ore long. The change is due to the fact that the battalion is tho star branch of the army, and it was thought best to have this mark o? distinction between It and the other branches. Judgo Bartlett will preside at a special term of the supreme court, which will communis at the Queens county court house in Long - I and City next Monday. j Judge Thomas Smyth of College Point has ! gone to a New York hospital to undergo on operation for a cataract, which threatens him with blindness. Constable William Toroy of Mattituck was Informed a few nights ago that the villago lockup was being used as a lodging nous.... That night lato he went to the building to Investigate. He found an entrance had been gained through one of the windows. He securely fastened tho same, making It impossible for the lodgers to get out. The next morning he went around to the lockup for his game and found two tramps iji tho building. Torey took the prisoners before Squire Gilder - sleeve, who committed them to the Riverhead Jail as vagrants. Three more weddings arc lo be chronicled for Glen Cove, bringing the number up to twenty - one for the month of November. The threg are Miss Lizzie Kemp, of the North county colony to William Finlay; Miss Lizzie Lane of Glen Cove to Edward P. Soper of Northport, and Miss Mamie Daly to William C. Bowers. AN ALLEGED NUISANCE Maintained on the Shore of Manhasset Eay. Tho town of North Hempstead 1ms deeided to brine another suit niralnst Muthow J. Gregory for maintaining a nuisance on the slioro of Mnnhnssot bay. Gregory lias lor many years carried on the business of breaking up old vessels to obtain the timber and junk used in their construction. It has been customarv to burn the old hulks aftor strlpp ng them. "The moke, cinders and smell arising from the burning hulks have buou tho source ot much annoyance to tho wealthy people ot Great Nock, anl as tho town had established a 'lnim to tho lauds ou tiio shore occupied bv Gregory be was warned to abate tho ' miiaaiici'. Gregory questioned tho authority of tho town to Interfere and denied their title to the same. Aftor a long squabble in tli courts tho town won its case and Gregory then applied to tho town for a lease of tho property ho occupied. His application was doniod. I'or a time tho business was discontinued, but immediately upon the return of tho summer residents to their city home this (all several old vessels were towo to Gregory's yards anil preparations for their burning commenced. Tho trustees of the iowu called a muotiQK immediately and de - cidd to begin another action niiaiusl him. The bnymen also are much interested in tho fight, us tliey claiin that tho breaking up and burning of tho old vessels is injurious to tho shell llsh industry. Charles 11. Street of Huntington is counsel for tho town trustees. BROKE UP THE MEETING. Worshipers at Setauket Disturbed by Three Colored Men. On Thursday evening Jehu Balloy, Clarence Frazier and Chnuncny Howard, three young colored sports of Setauket, indulged in a spree. After making' a round of Uio various saloons of tho village they became boisterous aud wore seizod by a Tery wicked desire to mnke a big lot of trouble for some one. A prayer mooting was being held in tho Mi'theuist church as tho trio staggered by and one ot thorn suggested that It would bo fun to break up the mooting. Accordingly they Hung wide open tho door with u bang tuat shook the building and brought the congregation to Its fnct. .Singing a rolickin sung they started up tho aisle and created the wildest confusion. Most ol tho worshipers lied from tho building but several ot the braver ones made an olTort to persuado tho men to leave tho club and avoid trouble. This only - served to still further aggravate the disturbing oloment and they wore practically left in possession of the building. Yesterday tli men woro arrostod charged with riot aud sent to tho county jail to await tho action of the urand jury. Tlio Sotanket people are thoroughly aroused over tho matter and will push tho caso against tho negroes to tho fullest extent. UNEMPLOYED OP SETAUKET. More Promising Prospects Are Said to Be Opening for Them. The reopening of the rubber factory at Kotau - ket with a volumo of orders ahead, which is n guarantee of steady work for months to come, has occasioned general rojoicing in that village. The factory only a few wueks ago was the scene of ths destruction of thousands of dollars' worth of dis aud used in tho manufacture of rubber boots and shoes becauso of the faituro of the supriuteudunt to comply with the turns of nu agreement between his company and tho rubber trust Since then a new company hus boon formed, with J. W. Kibi - rtsou in charge, to manufacture rubber mechanical goods and rubber clothing. Machinery is being set which will enable the company to turn out bicycle tiros at the rate of 1,000 pairs daily and other goods in like proportion.

The Kings county candidates for the position of judge advocate on the staff of the next governor of the state have suddenly ceased their activities. The reason is. on the word of the Intimate friend of one of them, that there is good authority for thy statement that William C. Wallace has already been privately designated by Mr. Morton. Wallace's backing is said to have bofn furnished by Geii' - rul Stewart L. Woodford, his law partner, and one of the orators for th'j Republican party in the campaign. Woodford's Influence was sought by many men desirous of serving the people by appointment to one of the many positions in the gift of the governor. Approached for his help by a candidate for Jtidgi! advocate on the governor's staff, General Woodford is said to huve returned word that, he was working in the iiitf - rcsts of Mr. Wallace. As a result of this development many of the candidates havr - turned their attention to the position of inspector of rifle practice. One of their number is uut for a judgeship.

BARGAINED FOR DI VOECE. TUTTLE'S ALLEGATIONS AGAINST ROBINSON. A Curious Story Comes to Light Through a Suffolk County Lawsuit. It Involves an Undertaker and a Real Estate Dealer. Lewis Tuttle of Westhampton is suing Fred W.Kaynorand Uiohard W.Roblnson to sctaslde a deed. The complaint tiled in this action yesterday contains an Interesting story. Fred W. Raynor Is a real estate man, who formerly had an office in Brooklyn. Some of his transactions in Sufrolk county have already been told in the' Eagle. Mr. Tuttle is the village undertaker. lie asks that a certain deed bo set aside to enable him to collect a bill of $51.05 due him for the funeral expenses of Klmore Robinson, the father of Richard W. Robinson. The property Involved In tho action Is nine acres of land at Westhampton. Other creditors beside Mr. Tuttle are said to be interested in this suit. Mr. Tuttle in his complaint alleges that Robinson conveyed the premises to Fred W. Raynor on condition that he. Raynor, should procure for Robinson a divorce from his wife, Susan Robinson. Mr. Tuttle says that Raynor gave Mr. Robinson a written agree ment to that affect. - - - ... "Raynor did not carry out the agreement ! and the divorce proceedings which wero instituted, did not turn out to the satisfaction 'of Mr. Robinson. One, Francis Foley, was named as corespondent and when U13 case was called at the last circuit for reasons unknown, there was no appearance on the part of the plaintiff and the complaint was dismissed." Mr. Robinson, it is said, does not think well of Raynor as an agent for divorces, and would like to see the property taken from his possession. Raynor has since conveyed the property and a mortgage is upon one of the parcels. Should the deed be sot aside others are likely to lose by the transaction, as Raynor has placed all his property in tho name of his wife. Raynor has not yet filed any answer. A case of forgery against Raynor is to be tried at the court of sessions at Riverhead tho first woek in December. The charge against him is that he altered a deed made by one, Phehe Rogers of Eastport, so that it purported to convey land to John Kelson of Brooklyn, instead of the original grantee.

It appears also that Mr. Osgood and his co - heirs have an interest in the Trinity church property of New York city, originally the property of Anneka Jans.'

There Is a Suspicion That It Is Got Up for Political Effect The Cost of tha Kaiser's Army A Bismarck Memorial. (Copyright, ISn - !, by the Associated Press.) Berlin, November 2! Pending the opening of the reichstag which, naturally, Is keenly awaited as the politicians arc anxious to seo how Prince Hohenlohe will figure as chancellor, public attention is mainly occupied with the split in the ranks of the Socialist party. Tin; dissensions which characterized tho Frankfort congress foreshadowed the present trouble. The Bobel and Liebkneeht section then overcame by sheer strength of votes tha vigorous opposition of tho Bavarian and South German delegates who wanted the liberty accorded thorn of carrying out the Socialist programme In their districts as they understood It, especially in regard to the agitation among the peasantry. They contended that tho special conditions prevailing In Bavaria and South Germany required special treatment If the Socialist movement was to spread there. Herr Bebel and his wing of tha party, the delegates from North and Central Germany, however, imposed the will of the majority on them and denied thorn the right of modifying the Socialist programme according to circumstances. Now, the South Gorman and Bavarian Socialists, with Herrcn Vollmar and Grillenbcrgcr at their head, have virtually broke loose from the national party traces. Herren Vollmar and Grillenbergor, in the newspapers of Munich, charge Herr Debcl was being solely responsible for this disruption of the party. Herr Brillcnbergor, in an especially violent attack, warns Herr Beboi that be Is not the czar and that the Socialist party is not the Russian empire. Herr Beb'el has replied with bitter words both la speeches and in writings repudiating any intention to arrogate the direction of the Socialist party. The official organ of the Socialists, the Vorwaerts, however, in the course of aa article written by Herr Liebkneeht, declaring himself in favor of the South Germans and regretting to have to throw his weight against an old friend with whom he has fought shoulder to shoulder for so long, makes the significant remark that, the German social democracy is so well educated, and the worship of individuals is so thoroughly eliminated from its ranks, that no member however influential can succeed in pushing it aside from the path laid down by its principles, experience and history, aud injure its general interests for the sake of a single man. This utterance sounds extremely like a menace to Herr Bebel and it. remains to be seen how he will receive it. A remarkable though plausible statement lu going the rounds In connection with the socialist situation. It is to the effect that the feud between the two suctions, even if it ia not actually pre - arranged affair. Is In no way so bitter a:s the socialist attempt to make it appear. But the socialists are playing a subtle, concerted game and they are magnifying it as much as possible before the eyes of the general public in order to forestall anti - revolutionary legislation which if the reichstag by this maneuver could be convinced that the socialists only need to be left alone in order to spilt, it into fragments by Internal dissension, would probably be rejected. This .scheme, characteristic of tha socialist wire pullers If actually exists, has already borne fruits for the moderate parties, especially the national liberals, hava fallen into the ingenious trap and are Innocently taking the part allotted them by tha socialists and arc declaring that the anti - revolutionary laws are entirely unnecessary in view of the disruption aud consequent weakness of the socialist party. The imperial government during the summer prepared a bill providing for a consid erable increase of tho tobacco tax as high a3 (ill marks per luu kilos. It. Is pointed out that such a lux would be prohibitive since. Including the manufacturing tax, it would ba equivalent to SI marks per 100 kilos. The consumption of American and other foreign to baccoes would thereby be curtailed and tho poorer classes of people would be obliged to c - onfin? tijoui.solvo.s to inferior tobacco grown in the 'Palatinate and Baden. The government would thus be the loser by the alteration Instead of the gainer. An agitation lias since been started by ni: M!o paities to itutc another tax for the tobacco tax. increasing the brewing tax being suggested. Meetings are being hold in support of this agitation and a conference ol the Gorman tobacco manufacturers at Mannheim pronounced against an increase of the tobacco tax. i 'roi'esser Behring has come out with anew discovery typhoid serum. He claims that it acts curativ. - ly in the case of typhus fever with about as large a percentage of successful treatments as the diphtheria serum. The typhoid serum has not yet been placed upon the market, as it cannot yet be producou as cheaply and as perfectly as desirable. A well known physician. however, expresses tho opinion that the curative proportion of tho typhoid serum aro most, doubtful. He adds that it may give immunity against typhoid fever, but experiments in cases of cholera and typhus show that such a serum would not necessarily cure The Imperial Budget for lsn - i - 95 Is now fixed at 7;u,00b.0io marks. 70,000.000 marks abova the Budget of last year. This Is owing to the new army law and th" increased needs ot the navy. Of this sum marks are put down for the - expenses of the array. The Budget will continue Increasing for the sama reasons every year until bSidi. when it will reach the sum of SaO.OOO.fiO'i marks. in certain dis'ricts of Silesia, notably in the district, around Glogan. cholera has again broken out, and in the small town of Jaet - si'hau a si - op; of pvoplo are prostrated.
