Actirity at the Opening of the State and National Headquarters - Sir. McCarren on Blaine's Strength Anion:? the Irish People The Senate Committee on Ordnance Organizing Meeting of ltepresent - atives of the Labor Party. At the Democratic National Henitqunvters this morning the work of renovating the committee's new house at Xo. H West Twenty - fourth street, was well under way, anil Serjeant at Arms EJ. Itorno thought the building would be ready for occupancy in k day or two. None of the members of the National Committee are in town except Commissioner Hubert O. Thompson, who waxes wroth over the absence of elova - ' tors In the new headquarters. Senator Gorman, uuder whoso direction the work of the committee will be carried on, is expected to reach Now Vork by Friday or . Saturday. At the Democratic State Headquarters Chairman William E. Smith was in conference with Senator M. C. Murphy, of Now York, llou. P. H. McCarren, of Kings County, and several other prominent Democrats this morning. Mr. McCarren, wno is one of Democratic leaders in the old rallying ground of the Fourteenth Ward of this city, caid ho had just roturned from Saratoga to enter on his dntie3 as a member of the State Executive Committee. He tad met Governor Ilen - aricks at tho Springs and the Indiana statesman seemed very enthusiastic and hopeful for tho success of the ticket. Tho reporter asked Mr. McCarren what the disaffection among the Irish citizens amouuted to, and tho Fourteenth Warder laughed at tho question. " It will be a visible," he said, " as last Winter's snow around . election day. That some disaffection was manifest I flon't deny, but tho Irish people are not such fools as to allow themselves to bo duped by this fellow Blaine. Eo has been the persistent enemy of their race on all CCCasionB. and to tho recommendation of fierce Know Notbinglem he has added the additional luster of apostasy. Governor Cleveland has in all matters been temperate, and to all natioualities ho has been courteous. The Irish people don't Bxpcct any more than this from ny public officer, and the protestations of the Blaine faction that It will do anything to help Ireland are as ridlculousTas they are mendacious." The apartments of the committee are In the recent nnei to the Hoffman House. They are stuccoed aud burnished, gleaming with old gold and resplendent with variegated lines on the ceiling resembling snakes. Chairman Smith will be in permanent charge, and tho people of Clinton County, as well as the ontire Democracy of the State, oxpeot great results from his man - , agement. Senator John A. Loaan since his advent in New York baa somewhat hidden his light under a bushel. He is nnder - lnstrnctions, it is said, from Mrs. Logan not to apeak moro than throe consecutive sentences to reporters and the burden of these must bo on the weathor, or aome subject other thau politics. Hoia strictly following the injunction laid upon him. Tho United States Senate Committee on Ordnance is expected to organize this aftornoon at the Fifth Avenuo Hotel. It is composed of Senators J. it. uawtey, cuaic - jnsn, Aldrlch, Miller of California, Butler and Morgan. The committee is empowered to inquire into the capacity of the various Bteel producing works in the United States, the best location for manufacturing ordnance aud several other matters connected with th.3 re - establishment of a navy. Senator Han - Icy has been in town for some days. Ho did not caro to bo interviewed to - day and aid that his opinions of Mr. Blaine's candidacy had not changed since he delivered his Bpeenh at tbo Kuvmimcan ratification meeting In New York come time since. THE LABOR PARTY. Fourteen members of the national committee, cheson bv the varioUB labor unions of tho United States, wero nreaont vestorday at a meetiug of the committee hold in tho office of Mr. John Kooncy, No. 2 Pino street, Kew York. Mr. Rcouey presided and Mr. John W. Reogh recorded. Among tho committeemen prcsont were: General M. Kcrwin, George it. uottren, a. iu. AbaU, Jamas Springer, Walter E. Barnard, Samue! ' Sheers, Thomas H. Komayne, II. J. Carroll, Joseph M. Davis, William n. Spiiuger, M. V. oannon, jouu loaie, John Oarliu and Felix Gallagher. General Kcrwin presented a set of resolutions disap - nrovins of the action of W. A. A. Carsey, Wilson S. wolf and others, who hold a convention at Chicago on the SOth July, at which Governor Cleveland was enthusiastically indorsed by tho labor leaders prosout, Kerwiu's resolution dououiices C.u - sny and Wolf and Enures the public that the "only original Jacobs" of pure labor unionism is represented by himself and "Judge" Rooney's organization. Tho resolutions con - eluded by peremptorily doma'.idiug tho expulsion of the recalcitaut Carsey and tho contumacious Wolf. Judgo Rooney then delivered an address, In which he aid: The result of the Chicago Convention has demonstrated tbeuuwortbiness of the Democratic leaders aud their unfitness aud incapacity to manage, a great political party. Nothing is more apparent in every step Which they have taken than their entire selfishness and eager greed of place and power, to tho utter disregard and contempt for tho voice aud wishes of those whom they profess to reprcsor.f. Tho masses of tho Democratic partv may contemplate the certain defeat that awaits them next November as the logical result of tho blind stupidity and aeliish ambition of their assumed leaders Our first choice for President was Gouoral Butler, the mauiuwhomwehaveallcoufidence and who has on all occasions proved himself our true friend ; and it was strongly intimated that, if tho convention could not be persuaded to nominate General Butler. Mr. Thurman, Mr. Bayord or Mr. McDonald, or - - "Hr Dana or Mr. Flower, would be acceptable to us, but all to no purpose. The struggle before us promises' to be earnest and severe. Mcu who have Interests to enhance will set forth all their energies for the accomplishment of their desires. Some will be actuated by patriotism and some by motives of selfishness; but above tho din of tho strife tho voice of right aud justice will be heard, hading their forces to certain victory, aud when the battlo is over aud triumph is won the now pretonded friends and admirers of Grovor Cleveland will disappear like a mist before the noonday sun and ho will be relegated into that obscurity out of whioh he ought never to havo been brought. On motion of Colonel flolaud 5,000 copieB of tho address and resolution were ordered to be printed for general distribution. The samo gontleman also moved that a committee of three, cnnsiMiucr of tha chairman, General Kerwin, and Captain Barry bo appointed to consult concerning tho candidacy of General Butler and vMir,rt. tn the comm't(et?' , . The meeting then adjourned, subject to tho call of the chair. PLAYING INTO THEIR HANDS. Secretary FoJtfcr Snsiainins the Cons - mUaiotiera or Emigration. Washington, AugnBt 6.

The Frcmdenblatl Bays : Although the meeting had uo great significance it waa not an act of mere courtesy, but an indication of the development of the two empires which the alliance, based upon mutual convictions, has so greatly promoted.

Being interrogated as to tho resolutions Alderman McCarty said that they comprised the actual franchise which it is proposed to confer on the Brooklyn aud Long Island Cable Company, not, however, until a full hearing of the othor s!de had been had and the proper amendments suggested and approved. Tho meeting thou adjourned. BOCK A WAY BEACH ALMOST DESERTED. Several Evictions and Agereusive Action by Creditors. Eocknway Beach was almost deserted yesterday, and the placo had the appearance of a breaking up day in October. The business men aro very despondent. Four evictions have taken placo and many judgments have been recorded against hotel keoperB, merely as a protection, the creditors say, and not to enforce paymont.

Mr. Dady Repudiates the Charge that His "Heelers" Caused a Disturbance Sapient Mr. O'Reilly Tho Blaine Young Republicans Anxious to Get Together and Hire a Hall Meelinsr of the Repnb - Iican Campaign Committee. It leaked out to - day that tho Blight disturbance which took place at last night's masB meeting of Independent Republicans in the Grand Opera House, was the result of an organized effort to create the iui - preBSion that a majority of those preseut wero friends of Blaine. That tho effort failed was duo to the promptness with which the Independents sat down on tho demonstration of the tattooed man's shoutors. The first cheer for Blaine provoked a storm of hisses and such vigorous expressions of disapproval that tho followers of tho tattooed man lost heart and feared to carry out their programme. Thoy did not dare to hiss the name of Clovelaud whenever it was mentioned, as was proposed : they were dismayed by the whirlwind of applause which swept over the theater when Carl Schurz enlogized tho Governor. Mr. Michael J. Dady was accused in one of the New York morning papers of having been present at the meeting with some of his tl heelers," for the purpose of creating a disturbance. Mr. Dady was in an indignant mood when spokou to by au Eagle reporter this moru ing. Said ho : "I was not present at the meeting, and I do not know that any of my political friends were there. If I had been present I would, if permitted, asked Mr. Denning if Mr. Schurz had been paid for the delivery of his speech. I know that Mr. Schurz is a sposker who speaks for hire ; it bos been his custom to demand money for his speeches from tho party which I am sorry to say honored him." That was a groat meeting last night," eaid a by stander. That depends upon what standpoint you view it from," said Mr. Dady. " I understand that as a Demo cratic meeting it was a great success. They teU me that there wero very few if any representative Repub licans preseut I mean the solid Republicans which represent tho much talked of better element of the party. . Such Bolid men as you see on the Academy of Music stage when Reuublicaus hold their mass meetings." There are a great many representative and solid Re publicans who do not caro to advertise the fact that they are going to leave their party and vote for Governor Clovelaud," said ex - Congressnian O'Reilly to the Eaole reporter. "No oue will be bo foolish as to deny that there are a great mauy RepublicauB in this city, merchants aud business men, who have signified their intention of voting for Governor Clevoland. If all of tho Independent Republicans of tho city had turned out last night they would have filled two Graud Opera Houses." Soveral very young members of the Young Republi can Club wero associated with a fow Navy Yard employes in last night's attempt to interfere with tho har mony of the meeting. When they realized their in significance thoy adjuurned to the sidewalk and amused themselves by shouting for Blaine. A deputy sheriff was one of the conspicuous shouters. Whenever tha enthusiasm of his youthful associates Sagged, he stimulated them to fre3h efforts by Betting up the boors io a saloon adjoining the Opera House. It was reported to - day that the Blaine members of tho Young Republican Club will hold a mass meeting in Music Hall at an early day. if enough money can be raised by thorn to pay for the use of tho hall. The Advisory Committeo of tho Young Republican Club have not yet examined the letters received from members who were invited to state whether they were iu favor of holding a meeting or opposed to the idea. Yesterday several hundred letters from members of the club, addressed to tho Advisory Committee, wero removed from tho PoBt Office and handed over to Mr. Nichols. The letters were placed in a safe and w'dl not be opened untU a majority of tho members of tho clubTiavo been heard from. MEETING OF THE CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE. The Republican Campaign Committee held its usual executive session last night and consulted with the presidents or other representatives of all the Republican ward associations in the city and county, the object being to take counsel togethsr as to the best methods to pursue lu go present campaign and to ascertain what was being done by the committee and the associations respectively. Tho result of thiB and other similar oonferencos to he hold Is naturally expected to be that harmony of thought and actiou will be obtained among Republicans throughout tho entire county, party members everywhere being able to feel thai they are not subject to the dictation of four or five leaders, and that whatever credit may be gained for success they have a share in. There is, howover, no particular work on hand at the present timo. The car. penterB are still hammering on partitions and Bide entrances at Headquarters, on Montague street, no docu - ments for circulation appear to have beeu Belocted and there is still nothing to do for the little army of assistants, who are clamoring for a hand in the campaign work. No annouueement is yet made of a fixed time for the first general mass meotlng, and it does not seem likely that the enthusiasm for the ticket will begin to boil over before the beginning of next month. Ques tions as to tho condition of political feeling in the various wards were asked by the Campaign. Committee last night and answered in such a way as to convey assurances that Republican "kickers" had generally como to the conclusion that they could wear out their boot toes to bettor advantage than by kicking at Blaine or against the giand old party, and so far the conference was uncommonly satisfactory. Some talk was also had, it is said, about tho existence of anti Cleveland Democrats In the different wards, and advice was given aud taken as to the best way to foster tho feeling among them. Turning to ward politica now, at seems that the big Ropublican majority In the Twentieth ward, and alao in the Third Congressional DiBtrlcl as well as the Ninth Assembly District, is already exciting much rivalry among aspirauta for Assembly and Supervisor ial honors. Supervisor Meyers is considered to be out of the race for his present office, and it 1b said has lost somo of hia former backers in tho north end of the ward. He Is', however, said to be anxious for an As sembly nomination; but he Ib opposed by W.lllam C. Wallace, law partner of Stewart L. Woodford, for the favor of tho Goodrich Nichols element ; and if tha lat ter should triumph at the primary, tho chances seem to be in favor of Wallace. It is not to bo forgotten, how ever, that the Suiumerflold - Weeks faction is in tlia Twentieth Ward, aud that Major Clobridge is more than likely to bo its candidate. Tho Nichols people soy ho is without opposition, bo that if the Twentieth Ward secures the Assembly nomination thiB time, Clobridge will be the man. That it will secure it, there seems to be little doubt, because the Thirteenth and Nineteenth have monopolized tho position for - years, and because the Thirteenth, at laBt, is handicapped by Laycraft's demand for the eohrievalty delegation. For the Supervisorship thero aro Beveral active can didates, A. H. Borne, a brother of Wm. M. Borne, of the Bovenue office, beiug one. Ho Ib iu business as a prin ter, and ia backed by the Unity Club. Wm. L. Bennom, lawyer, Charles Y. Van Doren, Wm. E, Sheifield and Randolph C. Fuller are others, and it is said that the struggle between them is growing very lively. Fur CougresBmau, there seems to be little doubt that James has seenred tne rmieieentii, xwoiuiotn, xwenty - Rrot and Twenty - third wards already for a renomina - tion. Some Twentieth Warders talk of J. B. Summer - field, tho president of their association, as a fine candidate, and a mau'who would mako au ideal Congressman, but it Is pretty Bafe to say lhat Sumraerfield la not and Will not lie a eKfiuiuH - , auu iuuii uauiua wui havo a cloar flold auu an tuo lavor. A RANDOM PISTOL SHOT. Firiu?. in the Dark at a Supposed Thief and the Result. John W. Frank, nu agent of John Hirts' Brewery, living at No. 224 East One Hundred aud Twelfth Btreet, New York, awoke last night and thought he saw Bomoono breaking lu his parlor window. He fired at the window, but on examination found no one. He then vieited tho atatlon houBe and while there a woman was bronght in sufforing from a pistol wound In tbe temple. She waa found near Mr. Frank's residence. Tho woman was taken to the Ninety - ninth Btreet Btation house and Mr. Frank waa held to await tho result of her injuries. Hon. Darwin R. James was found at hia res idence, No. 282 Tbroop avenuo, last evening, and iu response - to a question as to his intentions, said : " I shall be a candidate for renomiuation, unless, of course, thore is much direct opposition. I havo as yet takeu uo steps in tho matter, and at present am keeping very quiet." " Do you expect to receive tho nomination "No one can tell as to that, still I do not apprehend any serious opposition.' - " How do you regard tho present political outioon?" Well, at present everything aeems to bo for Blaine, At least it lookf that way. Still I have only considered the matter casually. I think, howovor, that were the election to take place within a few weekg Mr. Blalue would bo triumphantly elected." Then you regard the future as dangerous ?" I cannot say : but in bo much timo thore is room for many changes iu tho preseut mixod and anomalous condition of politics. Mr. Blaino is very popular, and a Republican, I of course consider hia olection Mr - tain in all events." Mr. James said further that he preferred to keep qulot, aud that ho was as yet paying little attontion to political mattera. THE DUI1LIS SCANDALS. Dublin, Aufjunt 6.

Eastern District Dos Catchers Make an Effort to Cnptnre His Pet A Lively Row Ensues, fn Which They ara KuocJccd Down A Revolver Drawn. Tha Eastern District dog catchers were not so BUCcesBful lu capturing PcdeBtrian Hazael's dog this morning as they were in soiziug Mrs. Fletcher's pet ou tbo stoop of her dweUlug, on South First Btreot, a few days ago. The inclosed wagon was being driven slowly along Fourth street at half - past ten o'clock, when thoy noticed George Hazael, accompanied by a friend, walk ing toward Woods' Rink, on North Ninth Btreet, to tako his forenoon exercise. Hia favorite Scotch terrier, Dash, was at his heels. The wagon was stopped, and two of the doe catchers alighted and mado a dash for the cauiue. Hazael Btarted ou a run for his Btoro ou Graud 9treot, nearly two blocks distant, and called Dash after him. One of the dog catcher's comprehended tho pedestrian's clever ruse, and Btopped him whiio hiB associate tried to capture Dash. Hazael, with a well directed blow with his clenched hand kuocked the dog catcher dowr. Tho latter's compauion drew a revolver, but Hazael'B friend knocked him out. Ttie pedestrian then started for homo aud tho dog catchers jumped into their wagon and followed him.

Laws Which They Hare Ignored and One to Which They Pin Their Fnith A Spe - cial Act Which Seems Opposed to the Constitnilon How the Projectors of Rapid Trausit are Trying to Aroid the Expense of a Commission. The enemies of the Richardson - Corbin elevated railroad project are said to bo lying in wait aud propose to make matters extremely Uvoly before the Bailroad Committee when it comes to dealwith their petition. One of tho points which will be raised against the gentlemeu is that they have not proceeded, so far, according to the process required by law. The only act under which an elevated railway can now be builf chapter 006 of the Laws of New York, which requires that fifty reputable bondholders and taxpByera must make application for the road, verified on oath before a justice of tha Supreme Court, the Bald application (in case of a road running over, under or through city streets) beiug made to tho mayora of the city alono. Upon this application being made to the Mayor he must appoint five commissioners who will invito planB and select from those submitted tho one deemed most suitable. This commission has power to decide whether or no the proposed rapid trausit road shall be elevated, surface or underground. When has taken all evidence on tho subject it presents a roport to the Mayor and then the Board of Aldermen must take action for or against the report of the commissioners. As tho company has not presented any such petition, as required, it may have to go back and begin all over .gain. Tho compauy can, under the Laws of 1873 Chap. 432, by consent of the aldormeu and Mayor, con vert Mr. Richardson's horse car system Into a cable syBtem, but there is nothing in that act which gives power for au elevated road, nor for the conversion of Mr. Corbin's Atlantio avenue steam railroad into a cable iad. The portions of the chapter named which deal with the subject relates that "tho Mayor and Common Council of any city aro hereby authorized to permit the use of any Improved motive power or motor for the traction or propolliug of any car or any city or Btreet railroad which is or may be constructed operated by horse power within their respective jurisdic tions, Buch permission to be subject to such restrictions, regulations and conditions as the said local authorities may impose and subject to revocation at any time by the authorities granting the samo by a two - thirds vote of its members." Tho laws of 1881. ohanter 498. entitled "an act to facilitate rapid 'transit ia the City of Brooklyn, by au thorizing the depression of tho railroad on a portion of Atlantie avenue in eaid city, and the connectiou aud operation of the same with olovated and other railroads" gave permission to the Atlantic avenue and Long iBland Railroad companies " to Bluk or dopresa the railroad on Atlantio avenue, east of Franklin avenue in the City of Brooklyn in such manner and to such au extent as may bo necessary to enable the eaid railroad companies to run traius in a proper aud satisfactory manner below tue grade or Atlantic avouue. Baiu sinning or depression to be at a point or near the intersection of Sixth aveuuo with said Atlantic avenue to Buch poiut lust of Brooklyn avenue as may best afford e3sy junction and access between said sunken or depressed railroad tracks aud those on the surface of said Atlantio avenue eastward thereof. The said railroad companies shall also join and invite the said railroad by safe and proper connections and connecting structures suitable for tho purpose at or near Sixth avenue and at the junction of Atlantic avenue and Flatbush avenue, in said city, with tho elevated railroad which may hereafter be constructed ou said riatbueh avenue and on tho route to Fulton Ferry aud the East River Bridge, as authorized to be built by tho East River Bridgo and Coney Island Steam Trausit Compauy aud the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Compauy." Section 7 of this act eomuelledthecomnanieB to com - nlote the work withiu two vears. aud as they have dono nothing iu the matter at all, the act ia necessarily void )W. To tho law as given above the opponents of tho new proposed elevated cable railroad look for the defeat of its plans, and nothing has been said against it which cauuot bo applied to tho Kings County Elevated Rail - ruad, which also failed to present the petitions of fifty property holders, and has In other ways failed to com ply witn tne law. out, ou tue otuer naud, iiiesBis. sorbin and Biehar.lson aud the Kinizs County people have somo law on their side. Many pin their faith on the following quoted from chapter 518 or tne Laws ofsl881. entitled. "Au act in relation to the streets of the City of Brooklyn : Whenever the consent of tuo local autuorities oi any city naving tne control oi auv streets or hiehwavs is rcnuired or necessary to authorize the construction or operation of any railroad, lu whole or in part, such consent, In the city or Brooklyn may be given by the Common Council of said city aud lu case the owners of oue - half in value cf the prop erty bounded on that portion of a street or highway upon or through which it is proposed to construct a railroad have consented to the construction and operation of BUch railroad upon such portion of eaid street then tho Mayor aud Commissioner of City Works of said city may give the conBent aforesaid aud tliey may also give consent to the crossing of intersecting streets ami the authorities nva hereby given respectively the control of such streets aud highways in tho cases provided aud for the purposes aforesaid." To this the enemies of the new elevated roads oppose Article III., of the Constitution of tho State of New York, which aavs. section 18: "The Legislature shall not paBs a private or local bill in auy of the following cases," and then goes ou to quote" various matterB, among which is : " Granting to auy corporatiou, association or Individuals tho right to lay down railroad tracks. Tho Legislature shall pass geueral lawB providing for the cases enumerated iu this section, and for a!l other cases which In its judgment may be provided for by general laws." Therefore, as the last quoted act is most clearly local it is declared unconstitutional. This is the way the case stands now and these are tho poiuts on which argument before tho Common Council will be treated. . . Tho expeuee of a commission would have to bo defrayed by the company which required it ; therefore probably, the avoidance of the procedure stipulated for by the Rapid Transit Act of 1875 and its amendments.

Tbe Lcalie Male Quartet gave some fine campaign songs, after which Mr. George F. Elliott was introduced. Ha said that thero were two good papers in this city and ho enjoyed reading them. These papers reported meetings fairly, Ho referred to the Eagle, a Btaunch Democratic paper, and the Brooklyn Times, a Btraightout Republican paper. He referred to Mr. Carl Schurz, who, he said, had always been a kicker. George William Curtis went iuto the national convention, aud when the nomina tions were made he did not make any objection. Ho was a traitor and a Democrat. Mr. P. W. Ostrauder. the next spoakor. was received with applau.e. He thought that tbe question of moral ity and capaoillty on ouiu sides wuuiu euiuiunieu, aud the discussion would ba confined to the questions nt fivM trade and oroteciion. In speaking of Mr. Blaiue he said that he had beeu known for years to bo the good husband of one wife, Mr. loeau, ne saia, when the Democratic party took up arms against the nfi,mBiil flnw tn its defense. Mr. Blaiue was the leading statesman of the country and had been for twenty years. The only thing that could bo said against Logan, continued the speaker, was that he did not use as good language as George William Curtis. Grovor Cleveland never pleaded a great case. He had made mouey through the connection of other members of his firm with monopolies. Ho had novor done anything great. nn s. B. Dutcher. tho next Breaker, referred par ticularly to the platfsrm of the Democrotic party. Dur ing hiB remaraa ne toia a aumuer u. muui stones which kopt tho audience in roars of laughtor.

In Bpoaking of tho tariff plauk in tho Democratlo party h e quoted the Eagle as soylng that it was a perfect piece of legerdemain. Tuo Democratlo platform do - nirmi fnr a free ballot and honest couut. If there was a f reo ballot aud honest count eix or seven Southern StuteB would cast their bollots for James G. Blaiue. At tho conclusion of Mr. Dutcner'S speecn uaii tuo auoj. Mr. O. F. Burton said he had left his own party, the Democratio party, because it believed In free trade.

The Anticipated Inrestiffation Does Not Take Place Last Night's Meeting in the Parsonage of St. Matthew's Lutheran Church Dissatisfaction Anions: Members of the Congregation. At 7:30 o'clock lost evening several re porters visited the residence of Rev. George H. Voaseler, No. 197 North Fifth' street, adjoining St. Matthew's Evangelical Lutheran Church, of which be is pastor. They camo on the understanding that Mr. Vosselor, having been requested by his people to resign or bo re - cjected, had demanded a full aud public - investigation of his conduct before all the church members. On being admitted, howover, they were informed by bis reverence that tho meeting was not ono of the character expected but simply the regular monthly meeting and private. The reporters, therefore, retired. A reporter arriving later asked them if Mr. Voaseler had bowod them out. One of them Bald " no, be bounced us." It was originally understood - that the meeting was to be held in tho church. It was held in a back parlor on the flrat floor. The reporters being denied admittance congregated on the stoop of a honse directly opposite eager to see some one come out from whom they could learn a fow facts. At the railing which soparates from the street the flower garden in front of tho parsonage, two of Mr. Voseeler's daughters acted as sentries with a email barefooted boy who ever and anon ran back to the basement and returned. A voice in Gorman from the basement once duriug tho mooting cautioned the ladies at the gato to give uo Information to reporters. Suddenly a gentleman came out at the haU door aud gaining tho street was hurrying toward Fifth street. A reporter accosted him with the words "Are you one of tho trustees 1" " No ;" he said, " I am tho teacher.1' On the reporter asking him if there was any investiga. tion to be held ho said, " Go to the gato and you will get all the auswere ; I'm in a hurry to look after my Bick child." The dullness of the reporter's vigil was relieved only once by a street fight between some twenty youug roughs. Suddenly one of them was pitched upon a pile of lumber which ho struck with his head making a horrible thud. The others then Btampeded, but presently returned and laid tha Injured one oMt on a coal bin to all appearances dead. He afterward revived, and they carried him away. About nine o'clock there being present nine trustees, Hev. G. H. Vosselor took the chair and Mr. J. D. Mahlstadt, proprietor of the Eckford House, corner of Broadway and Eighth street, acted as secretary. The first business in order was connected with the Sunday school. The report of Mr. Gebhardt, the teacher, showed that there were forty - two scholarB. After some other regular business had been transacted Rev. Mr. Yosscler made an extended addross, in which he charged tho newspapers with having unfairly reported him. He also alluded to one of the trustees, presumed to be Mr. Jacob Dahmer, of No. 395 First street, as having shown an unfriendly feeling toward him and as endeavoring to have him removed. Mr. Dahmer, who was prese nt, repolled the charge as false, and Intimated that on the contrary ho had always been the friend of Mr. Vosselor,until some months ago, when Mr. Voaseler had spoken against him. Mr. Vosseler stated that on the occasion referred to bo spoke under excitement. Messrs. J. Edicker and Claue Gerken two of tho committee, who had handed Mr. Vosseler, the demand of the vestry for his resignation wero present. Mr. S. Stolte, the other committee man, was absent. Neither Mr. Edicker nor Mr. Gerken said anything, though the latter, it is asserted, had tho most reason to speak. Nothing whatever was said In reference to the alleged causes for domanding the pastor's resignation, either by himself or those presout. At tho close of his ro - marks ho said that he had made up his mind to resign and would propose that his resignation, to take effect May 1, 1885, be accepted. Two or three members manifested opposition to the proposal, but finally it was accepted. A reporter of the Eagle visited soma of the church members . this morning, and found that a few of them are qulto dissatisfied with the arrangement and Bhow a di - 'positlou to have it set aside. Mr. Jacob Dahmer said : " I don't feel well satisfied and I do not thiuk this matter is over yet," Ex - Captain Samuel Wandolt, formerly one of the pillars of the church, was visited this morning at his cooperago works ou North Third street. The captain difOlaimed all interest In tho affaire of the church, which, he Bays, he aud his family left some months ago. He thinks, however, that a two - thirds vote of the church members will limit the further connection nf Mr. Vosseler with tho church to three months. It is understood that another meeting In reference to tho matter will bo called soon, some of the church members regarding the trustees, who have all been appointed by the paetor, as too much under his influence. Such ia the state of tho church's affairs at present. Mr. Vosseler'fl age has been misslated. Instead of 60 he is but 55 years old, though looking much older. His father is still living iu Swabia, whither aftor ho resigns, it is said, tho reverend gentleman will emigrate. Ho is popular with the " boys '' in tho Fourteenth Ward, who familiarly characterize hiin as "Holy Joe." About four years ago he had a fair at Masonio Tcniplo for tho benefit of the church, and a grand feature of it was a sword which cOBt about $375. This was put up for competition between tho friends of Garfield aud Haucock, the candidate to receive - the sword who received the most votes. The sword was won by General Hancock, and afterward presented to him on Governor's Island by Jnstico Thomas Kenna. The votes netted to the church about $4,000. Some persons said that Mr. Vosselor profited personally by this fair, but this is denied on the very best anihoiity, as all the money weut into the hands of the treasurer, and has been fully accounted for. Mr. Vossclor's salary is nominally $900 a year, but what with feea for marriages, &c., aud the fact thtft he is rent free and has nothing to pay tor coal, nis position is worth $3,000 a year. A few years ago ho purchased two frame houses, worth probably $6,000, ou Bushwick avenue. Ho claims that under nis cnarge me cuurcu has prospered, and that all Hb debt out $3,ouu jibb oeeu wiped out. o . THEY ARE ALTOGETHER 1RRESPON SIDLE. 'I'be Happily Si tun tod Atlantic Bank Stockholders. It now appears, in spite of what has hither to been said on the subject, the Atlantic State Bunk iB an exception lo the rule that tho stockholder of State bauks are responsible to double tho amount of their stock to depositors in case of the suspension or failure of the bank. At the instance of depositors, who had requested in formation on the subject. Mr. Freling H. Smith, re ceiver of tho Atlantic State Bank, Baid to an Eaglb reporter yesterday : " The Atlantic State Bank was oaganized under the act of Aprd 18, 1838, authorizing the business of banking. Section 23 of that act read no follows: 'No shareholder of any such association shall bo liable in his capacity for any contracts, debte or engagomeuts of such association unless the articles of association by him signed shall havo declared that tho shareholders shall be soli - .ute.' Terra is Homing contumcu in tuo arth'leB of cssocl tion of the Atlantic State Bank which declares that the shareholders shall bo liable iu their individual capacities for tho obligations of the bank. Uuder chapter 100 of the laws of this State, relating to banks, haukine and trust companies, pasa' - d July 18. 1S82, there is a seetlon relating to the liabilities of the stockholders, but that is confined to the stockholders of associations of issuing hank notes or paper credits to circulate as money. Now the Atlantic Slate Bank was an association of discount aud deposit and issued no notes or paper credits to circulate us money." This is why Ihero is rejoicing id tho camp of the Atlantic State Bank's stockholders, aud wailing In that of the depositors. Judge Scott who was a stockholder himself in the Atlantic, drew tne articles cl agreement for it. Iu view of the fact that Mr. Oliver Denton, cashier of tho Atlantic State Bank, is contemplating establishing a new State bauk, with himself as president, aud has declared that he dooa not know whether or not the liabilities 'of the stockholders of the now concern will be greater than those of the old, it is as well for possible depositors lo know just what to expect. WHO TOLD THE TURTH? Commissioner Partridge Called Upon to Decide on a Roundsman'! Veracity. Roundsman James Green, of the Sixth Pre cinct, made a serious charge of neglect of duty against Officer Patrick H. Bowes beforo tho Polico Commis sioner yesterday. He stated that about half - past one oh the moruing of July 20, he was setting at the window of his house, on Grand street, taking tho air, when ho obFerved Bowes engagod in conversatiou with a woman opposite the millinery store, 501 Graud street. They alked for about fifteen minutes, aud then Bowes turned down the light in the street lamp. aud went into tho store, He waited until twenty minutes pas four whon Bowes came out. Ho thou weut up to him aud charged him with being away from bis post, which Bowes denied. In his de. fonse Bowes swore that at about half past 2 the morning named ho met a friend of his, John Roberts, at the corner of Leonard and Grand streets, which is opposite to Green's houso ; that while talking with him he heard Mrs. Green say to her husband " I just eaw Bowes getting on a Grand street car. Now is a good timo to foilow him." To which Green an swered : " I don't want to go out now ; I'm sleepy. His wife still urged him, saying: "You big, fat, lazy thing, you must go out. No wonder the boys call you Old Dyuamiter.' " Mr Green closed the conversation by remarking, Hold your gab ; I'm going to sleep." BowerB further stated that having au idea that tho roundsman was watching him ho got several people to timo him at different parts of his post. Eight of these appeared before tho commissioner and swore that they bad spoken to Bowes during tho time he was alleged to have been iu the milliuery store. Commissioner Pttrtridgo did not deem the evidonce sufficient and tho complaint against Bowes was 'dis missed. INCREASING THE SALARIES.

Commissioner Kissom in conversation with an Eagle reporter after the adjournment of the Board eaid, " ThiB question of tho increase of the salaries of the employes in tho department has been exercising tho minds of the commissioners for soma time past. There is no difference of opinion as to the foot that even handed Justice would require the incroaso of the sala - rleu nf nil of the emnlovcs. if the work performed was taken as a measure of remuneration therofor. Tho point of variauce between the commissioners is as to the wisdom ot Increoaing tue salaries ui uu mo em ployes of tho department at iniB time." : A PROBABLE FATAL ROW AT A PICNIC. ConoNA, L.

Ex - Assemblyman and ex - Congressman James Maurice Dies Kather Suddenly. The Victory Which He Won Over " Prince " Harry Genet His Gift to the Diocese of Long Island. Hon. James Maurice died at his home in Maspeth rather suddenly yesterday afternoon. He had been complaining, but was not thought to be seriously ill. Mr. Maurico was at ono time tho most prominent citizen of Queens County, but for the past fifteen years he has lived very retired aud his name seldom appeared before the public. He was a lawyer, and at one time was the partner of Jamos T. Brady, and for a quarter of a century was prominent at the bar, but he made the larger part of hia fortune out of tho real estate bus! nesB. Ho always displayed a great interest In the af fairs of Newtown, where nearly all his life he resided, and to his ability as a lawyer and a financier ia attributed tho savlug of tha town from bankruptcy at a .time when it was overloaded with debt. He took a leading part in all reform measures and carried every issue for ward succssfully. Mr. Maurice was elected to tho Assembly of this State In 1851, by the people of Queens County, and in 1853 he was elected to Congress from tho First Dis trict of New York. He never had a liking for poli tics, and only consented to be a candidate for ofhco when a crisis arose and the people demanded his ser vices.

Iu that year Boss Tweed had need to increase his strength in tho Legislature, being threatened with tho loss of Beveral New York City districts, aud " Prince" Harry Genet was Bent to reBide in the Town of Newtown and become tho candidate of the Democratic party for member of Assembly. He was backed by barrels of mouey and experienced no trouble in securing the nomination. The Republicans nominated Mr. Maurice, and oitlzens of the Democratlo faith met everywhere aud indorsed him. IVhcn the ballots were counted Mr. Maurice had a majority al most outnumbering Mr. Genet's total vote. Tweed re venged himself on too people oi gueens county oy favoring some pernicious legislation. Mr. Maurice was not uiveu to display, but detested it. Ho cave a creat deal of money away in charity, and kept his benefactiouB as Becret aa possible. Recently ho donated fifty acres or laud to tne episcopal diocese of Long Island for cemetery purposes. The land is in tho town of Newtown, aud if the donor's views aro enr - ried out the cemetery will bo a source of considerable revenue to the diocese. Mr. Maurice lived and died a bachelor.

He leaves a very large estate, said to amount to hot less thau $1,000,000. MINOR KEWS OF TUE DAY. A Condensed Rucord of Incidents in Brooltlyn and Vicinity.
