Tiie Attorney-General Gives Mk. Brennan Permission to Bring Suit. By a telegram received by Mr. Bren- nan from Mr. Jobn F. Graham of Jobn M. Gardner's oflice 011 Thursday, it was learued that Attorney-General Hancock liub rendered a deoision in the contested election case instituted by Mr Breunen. After tbe recent town electiou Mr. Graham argued for Brennan, while Senator Lexow appeared for tbo Town Board. At tbe bearing before the Attorney General in Albauy ou Mon- day last decision was rendered iu Mr. Brennan's favor, permission being given him to bring a quo warranto action to have the entire town election de- clared illegal, and therefore nutfand void. Mr. Brennan informed a Times repre- sentative yesterday that bo will force tbe case to au issue as soon us possible. Tbo matter will probably be beard at a special term of tbe Supreme Court in Newburgli. The decision is as follow*: BEFORE TUB ATTORNEY-GENERAL. Iu the Matter of the application of Patrick Brennan and others to the Attorney-Geue- ral, to bring an action iu the nature of a quo wuiTanto against Josiaii Felter, to determine his title to the office of Super- visor of tbe Town of Haver- straw. It appears from tbo papers presented on tbii application, that on tbe Gt,b day of Murob, 1801, au annual town mee ing was held in tbe Town of Haverstraw, County of Rockland, N. Y.. for the pur- pose of electing a Supervisor and other Town officers. It is alleged upon the part of the petitioner, that only one of the Justices of the Peace presided at said' Town meeting, aud that the Justices who failed to appear aud preside at the Town meeting in connection with the oue present, designated other persons to uot in tbeir place. It further appears from tbe papers that the oue Justice of tbe Peace and other persons, who were designated to act iu tbe place of the Justices, who neglected to perform their duties at said Town meeting, presided throughout tbe day; and, as nothing appears to the contrary, I ussume can- vassed tbe votes that were oast at said Town meeting. The Town Clerk was uot preseut ut said Town meeting but design ited an- other to act iu his place. It is claimed upon tbe part of the petitioners that the failure of these justices aud the Towu Clerk to attend and officiate at the towu meeting reu ders tbe electiou null und void, and they ask the Attorney-General to com- meuce au action iu the nature of a writ of quo warranto against th' present 00 cupaut of the office of Supervisor. The Towu law, Seotiou 27, Chap. 5G9, of the L\ws of 1892, provides that, \i'he Justices of tbe Peace of each towu shall attend every towu meeting held therein ;' and such of tbem as shall be preseut, shall preside at such meeting, aud Bee that the same is orderly and regularly conducted, aud shall have tbe right authority to preserve order, to enforce obedieuce, and to commit for disorderly conduct, as is possessed by tbe Board of Inspectors at a general electiou. If there be no Justices of tbe Peace pre- sent ut snob meeting, then Buch persons as shall be chosen for that purpose by tbe electors preseut shall preside aud shall possess the right powers us Jus- tices.\ The Statute appeurs to muke no pro- vision for tbe appciutmeut of persons to uct in the pluce of Justices of the Peaoe, where there are oue or more justioes present, and presiding at u Towu meeting; but says, that, if there be no Justices of tbe Peace preseut at such meeting, then such persous as shall be chosen for that purpose by tbe eleotors present, shall preside. Section 28 of tbe Chapter referred to provides that iu the übsence ot tbe Towu Clerk, the electors present shall choose a clerk of tbe Towu meeting, aud that he shall take the ooustitutioual oath of office before euteriug upon his duties, as ruch Clerk. The petition further states that \no oertifioate of el< otion of Town officers for 1801, as authorized and directed by law, baa been made up, signed aud tiled iu tbe Clerk's office ot said Town.\ Br this allegation, I assume that it is claimed that tbe Towu Clerk has neg- lected to follow the provisions of SecUou 31 of the Town Liw, which provides that, \the poll list aud minutes of the proceedings of every Towu moeting, subscribed by tbe Clerk of such nioet iug aud by the officers presiding, shall be filed iu the office of the Towu Clerk, within two days alter such meeting, and there preserved.\ There is uo allegation iu the petition or iu tbe moving papers of any fraud in the election, and uo ullegutiou that the person now occupying the office ot Sup- trvisor of till) Towu of Uav <rstruw did uot reoeive a majority of the votes cast. Iu the case of tbe People vs. Cook, 8 1 N. Y., 07, it was held that, \the lutes j for couductiug an elootion contuiued in tbe Stututes are inteuded to all >rd all citizens an opportuu tv to exercise their right to vote, to prevent illegal votes, ; and to ascertain with certainty the true \u25a0! number of votes cast, uud for whom. These uie directory, and uot jurisdio tional, iu theii character.\ The manner, however, iu which this Towu meeting wus conducted, appeur- iug to be uot only irregular, but novel iu so many particulars uud the questi iu involved mainly one of law, I have con- eluded to graut the application to briug ku action to questiou the title to the \ offico of Supervisor's of tbe presont in- ' cumbent, upon tbe giving of a bond in tbo usual form in the sum of fifteen hundred dollars to indemnify and save t. harmless the people from all damages, coßts aud expenses by reason of the said notion to he commenced. As fur as tbe question of law involved is concerned, the decision of this case will determine ' the title of tho other Town officers n named in the petition, and I deem it ib best for all parties interested to have 1. but one uction commenced at present. T. E. Dancock, \ Attorney-Geueral. EXCISE MATTERS. e Tho Board of Commissioners of Ex- u cise met iu the Corporntiou Rooms on e Monday evening and organized for the - ensuing year. Heury Rem tie was elected chairman, Edward Schmobl secretary, and Jacob Hafelc treasuier. Tho Board \ will meet iu the Corporation Rooms on n Mondays and Thursdays of each week - during this month for tho purpose of receiving Applications and grunting licenses. The rate for a license will be ' $30. It was also decided to graut no e new licenses. All those who fail to m ike 1, au applicatiou aud take out a license |t during this mouth will be prosecuted according to law. The uniform rate of a $30 was adopted by tho Board so that : each person iu the business would bo placed upou the same footing. Heretofore a number of persona were in tbe liabit of taking out au ale aud beer liceuse aud would thon sell whiskey the same as those who had a saloon liceuse. The Board met ugain on Thursday night. Mr. William S. Gannon, who formeily taught school in the Beaver Pond distriot, wanted to have u license issued to him to see in- leiior decorations to the rural com- munity in St. JohuM. Mr. Gaunou wus very positive that John J. R >ee, who formerly kept a dispensary, was to re- tire from tbe business, aud Nelson Rose, uho also kept a caneversary iu the mouutuius, was reported by Chairman Remhe to have beeu iudioted aud fiued $25 for selling liquor ou Sundays. The fact that Nelsou Rose was convicted of illegal distribution of liquid refresh- ments would preclude his being granted a license. Although Mr. Gauuon was sure that John J. was to letire from business tbe Bourd promptly refused his petition ou the grouud that the Bont'd bn.l agreed to grant no new lioeu»es. The chairman was evidently in sympathy with tho former peda- gogue's application. Secretary Schmohl called the chairman down, aud stated that if Mr. Rumbe wanted to do his notorial work the same should bo doue before the Board convened so that the Board could proceed with its business. Several applications were received and acted upon, a license being granted to every applicant who is now iu tbo busi- ness. I SERIOUS RUNAWAY. Mr. Washington I. Yau Houteu, bet- ter known as \Wash accompanied by a friend Samuel W. Coe, came to towu fiom their rural homes on the banks of the turbuleut Ramapo River ou Thursday for a good time, aud it looks as if they got it. \ Wash\ uud \Sammy like all others, engaged in the honorable calling of tilling tbe soil, have been working very bard recently iu ordei to get their crops in the ground and their furms iu a proper state of ; cultivation. Their labors were about concluded ou Wednesday, aud \Wash j who has u host of frieuds among the boys when he comes down, uud par- ticularly when flash, suggested to '?Sammy\ that they visit Haverstraw aud have a good time, in fact paint the town a brigbtoarmiue. Besides \Wabh ! who has a number of customers who purchase hay, stiaw, cordwood, etc,, from him, had failed to remit, so that j he was somewhat uuxious about bis! inouey so that they might have a long ! day, started from bome early ou Tburs- i day morning, reaching towu eul'ly iu the day. ''Wash,\ who is busiuess right up to the handle, and who is u firm believer iu the principle of busi- , ueus before pleusure, called upou his ' customers with considerable success, so < much so that, financially speakiug, he was iu a position to purchase u very large loud of extract of malt aud hops, which he succeeded in doing. \Wash\ , beoacso more generous as he piled on his load, aud having numerous frieuds he eudeuvoied to call on them all, so that about 7:30 o'clock iu the eveniug when they started for home thny could hardly hold auother glass. \Wash\ is somewhat of u sport, uud usually drives a good horse, thought ho would give some of the boys a brush before goiug home This he did going up and down Broadway several times at a 2.10. As the mistime continued tho sport became very exhilarated, but he weut once too often. After making about a dozen heats 011 Broadway, \Wash\ started d iwu West street, and in attempting to pass auother wagou iu frout of the resi- ! deuce of Geoigo DeWitt the vehiole, iu which Waahiiigtou and his friend were, collided with uu electric light pole, throwing them out. Coe escaped with only a few scratches, but the uumesuke of the father of uur country in attempt- ing to see if bo could touch the live wires willi his feet bronght bis crauium iu contact with tho sharp edge of the curb s one, cutting a severe gash about live inches iu length, which uecessitated the services of u physician. Afti r his wounds were dressed the pair started 11 for home sorer, uuddod aud wiser, hav i ing left a otimson trail ou West street foi several hundred feet, but uot the j kind II at was intended.

Both nines are composed of strong teams, aud it is expected an interesting game will be had. The last game between these nines took place at Garnerville lust year, and was won by the Spring Valley boys. What came near being a bad wreck oocurred at the junotion of the New Jersey and New York Railroad and the Piermout branch of the Erie Railroad ou Friday of last week. Some mis- creauts stole the baggage trnok from the depot aud placed it across the traok at tbe place mentioned. Conduotor Gor- don's train struck the truck and made it into kindling wood.
