CAUGHT IN THE ACT. 5b Some person, or persons, several times u recently, have through pure mischiev- ousness pulled up and otherwise <le- in stroyed the young maple trees which Pi the trustees have had planted ou Hud- son and Westside avenues aud other 81 streets npou the Heights Some of the ret-ideuts becoming tired of this folly 0 called at this office and complained of |,i the action of the miscreants. The Times of last week called the attention of tlio in authorities lo the matter with so ranch tl success that ou Sunday night when w more of the trei s were torn out. by the roots, but owing to the facts being pub- (;i lished iu \the paper that is read\ the hi citizens were ou the alert, so that earlyo u K t Monday morning complaint was made to l; Tudge Taylor ohurging John Garland, ' who resides on Westside avenue, with ( Deing the marauder. Upon being ar- , ( raigued, Garland oould give no reason - for his aotion and pleaded guilty, where- Q r tipou the judge imposed a fine of thirty dollars, or five dollars for each tree de- 1 j stroyed. The line was promptly paid, 11 , (is the culprit probably thought he was \u25a0 (: fortunate iu escaping so cheaply. How- j rl ever, Mr. Garland will let the trees grow 1 in future, as that kind of sport is almost '' J too expensive. \ tl ONE THOUSAND BRICKMAKERS ON STRIKE.

Upon the conclusion of tho school exercises tho scholars marched upon tho school lawn with the primary de- partment in the lead As the children marched upon the lawn to the place Al selected to plant the \elm\ a very plea- ]_,j sing view was presented as tho little ro \tots\ took their places upou the lawn, leaving a passageway through which ,Ui tiie graduating class marched, carrying C.i the tree which was to bo planted. After tit placing the tree in position each mem- uy ber of the elaas threw some <iirt around lip- roots, Master William Carpenter in a clear voice reciting tho following: Ft \Years wilt pass away, and this tree Cc which we plant today will become a rft( ttudryeiu). . We who ate now students will act our 101 part in the theatre of life and become Al old men and women, but wherever we oil are, whether in disgrace or houor, in prosperity or alvcreity, our huppiest recollections will lie centered in these our school days, and this elm dedicated ha to our class ou this Arbor Day will re- M main a monument of former happier times.'' w This concluding tho day's ceremonies, j.

RESOLUTIONS RESCINDED t Tin: Board or Trustees in a Mud- DLE OVER THE NEW SiDEWAT.KS. The meeting of tho Board of Trustees t held on Tuesday wna a very inharmoni- ous one. After the minutes of tlio lust ( regular meeting had been rend and adopted, Clerk Fiirmuu read tho follow- 1 ing bills: [ Michael Weill 8 7 50 ' W. F. Blocker.., 19 55 Fred. Apple 2il 75 Thomas Clark 0 00 , William Curruti 7 50 , Joseph Howard 5 25 ? Hugh Hodden 8 25 Jnmes Cnllen 11 25 Patrick Farrell 12 50 ? Michael Ilanshon 17 75 Hugh lloilly 17 75 . William S. iieduer 25 00 As soon as the clerk read tho last bill, J Alderman McKenzio moved that all the a bills be paid. This started tho ball r rolling with suoh success that tho solons must have been pupils of tho \ Only v Casey\ at his handball court at somo a time, for it was kept rod hpt all tho 11 evi-ning. No soonor did Alderman Ale- Keczie make his motion than Alderman ( Fox, who is a member of tho Finance Committee, movo to pay tho bills sopo d rately. This cieatcd a lively discussion j 1 for a few minutes when the facts of t] Alderman Fox's opposition was brought li out. v Tho bill of Michael Wehl, amounting J| to 57.50 for tbreo days' services iu n hanging a gate upon the property of g Mrs Edwiu Allison was presented. Mr. Fox opposed the payment of bills *. which were apparently for private bono- lit. The bill was finally allowed, as Alder- , man McKenzio explained that, tho work ' was done by the order o! tho Board, but 11 with the understanding that no more work be ordered done on private pro I! pertv unless sanctioned by the full T Board. J A communication was received from General Warren Hose Company stating that Jacob Hafele had been olected to represent that company on the Board of Engineers, »ud another from Ludv W..r- ? ren Hose Company stating that James ltenn hud b ien elected by that company i to a like position. 1 Upon motion tho communications were ordered received, and tho action of the company ratified. The bank submitted a report of the village funds on doponit. A detailed report was also rendered by Treasurer B dell. The report of Mr. , v Bedell was commended by the Board. The next iduodo.ime over a contract which ha l been made by Aldermen Brahm aud MeCilie, who are tho Firo , Committee, with The Boston Cotton Wove Hose Compuny. The contract callod for seven hundred feet of cotton . wove hose warranted by the company for thirty-pis months for §50(1 ' Mr Fox opposed the ratification of the contract, as ho did not think tho committee had the right to order tho c hose without, the sanction of the wholo r Board, and wan forth, r opposed to the B contract at the la-r, meeting when the samples were submitted. The Board were iu favor of purchas- ing rubber hose, which was a dearer- priced hose, but was considered a belter I article. t Mr. McKenzio wanted the contract ( ratified, as he believed the Board should stand together. The Board weie evi- dently of the same opinion, a\ the con- tract was ratified, with Mr. Fox dissent ing Electrician William F. Stocker pre \u25a0ruled an application asking for a frail chisu to ereet a telephone lino iu tho village, Mr. Stocker agreeing to give the village peim shou to use the poles at any time the village might oonclude to have a tire alarm The application was referred to Mcssih. MoKeuzie iyid McCabe as a special committee. A communication was received from Mr C, It. Conger, in which that gentle- mau offered to dedicate Maple avenue to the village. It will be remembered that this was refused by the village some time ago, but at tho time it was expected the village were to have sewers. Tho Board make a proposition to Mr. Conger agreeing to accept his terms. Mr. Conger thinking he had the Board in a li'do delayed tuauing any positive answer in the matter until lately. Air. McKenzie wanted the proposition accepted. In this ho was opposed by Mr. Fox, who did not thiuk that a street which runs through ponds ot water and only appears upon paper should be burdened upon the taxpayers, and amended by moving the proposl- Hon bo no\ aooepted. The Alderman was supported by Aldermen Courier aud McCabe, the president, Alderman Brahm uud Tieruey voting in the ing i- tivo The original motion boiug put, Presi- dent Zundel di olared the original motion as carried, which brought the Board in a general wrangle, as the supporters of the resolution had evidently mi-ealcu lated, as both Messrs. Brahm and Tier- uey voted against tho resolu ion. A petition was presented by Alder- y min Fox which bore the signatures of almost every taxpayi r on Sharp street asking tho Board to lay out a street V I along the rear of tho properties of s Allied Carson and Joseph Snedoker to connect Sharp street with West Broad II street. This, together with a petition t asking that West street be widened, e was referred to the corporation counsel, ii as Clerk Fnruian was under tho opinion a that the law had not been compiled o with. v It was ordered that in order to ao- o commodate those persons who have or - will be employed by tho village, and i. whose services shall bo dispensed with, r the prtßideut aud olerk be authorized to s pay. ir i)r. H. W. Thomas, who was appoint- ed a member oi the Board of Health at )the last meeting, r. signed, as lie did not expect to remain during the season when bis servicos would be most, needed. Jacnb V. Smith was appointed to fill - the vacancy. Tho red-hot part of the evening was yet to ho disposed of. It looks as though a the only man ou tho Board who docs _ what he thinks is right, and who is . thoroughly able to advooate his views even with almost the entire Board against ' him, is Alderman Fox. Tho alderman - has evidently incurred the ditpleasure of (he other members of tho Board, ns q it is very evident ho is in none of the r quiet schemes which are on the cards. f Alderman MeKenzie presented a writ- ten resolution which he bad evidently J (, labored over for a long while, rescinding - the resolution passed at tho last meet- - ing compelling tho Snedekers and Ecker- 8 - sons to lay flig walks on tho east side r side of Broadway uud tho north sido of - Broadway. t - The resolution ordering the laying of I I tho walks at the last meeting wbb offered l\y Mr. Fox, so that when Mr, Mc- Kenzio sprang his little surprise the x 9 alderman opposed tho adoption of the 9 I resolutiou in plain language. Mr. MeKenzie claimed in support of his motion that the cost to build a side- * walk of neaily a mile would be too big ' an expense aud that the street was too n narrow, and that there were no lines ? established to know the exact width ol ?' the street, uud, besides, ho did uot 11 think tho Board had tho power. Alderman Fox was iu good shape and ' displayed considerableoritorical ability, as he claimed that if no lines exist now ' is the time to establish thom. If the trustees had years ago established tho 1' t lines of Rockland and other streets the village would not be now engaged in a f litigatiou.
