ROUK.LAND COUNTY VOL. XI-, N'o. 23. HAVERSTRAW, N. Y., FEBRUARY 24, 1900. PRICE FIVE CENTS. HIS FIRST SENTENCE. Gives James Xoran Eight Years in Sing Slug Prison. COUNTY COURT ADJOURNS. The Business Conducted in a .Rapid, Thorough, Economic rfanner. The ante election poomises made by t.be Democrats in the last campaign, give every evidence of being fullfilled to the letter. The economic administration of .pub- lic affairs, as exemplified by Judge Fallon, when he was Supervisor of Orangetown, have been carried into the Connty buildings and the administra- tion of the laws in a particularly notice- able manner which is in stiong contrast to the last administrations of public affairs. The horde of constables and deputy sheriffs that were formerly hanging around the court honse have disappear ed. their places being taken by about half a dozen men who have assigned duties to perform, the official sunshine bathers who were formerly wont to bask in the suns rays while drawing pay for holding the iron railing around the eourt house grounds from flying away, have, like last winters snow vauLshed. The echo of the Court House bell had hardly died on Monday morning, when Judge Fallon ascended the bench and with his characteristic simplicity opened conrt. County Clerk Crum called \James Moran to the bar\ and promptly in obedience to .the cull Sheriff Blauvelt advanced through the maize doors with the Nyack desperado. A silence that-iwaa almost painful per- vaded the court xoorn, the only object that relieved the sombere and gloomy aspect was a boautifull potted plajitfrom Mr 6. Blauvelt's floral collection which . adorned the Judge's desk, even the suu- . shine being unable to penetrate the room. Moran is a muscuiar, well built fellow, with an iatelligout countenance; he .stepped firmly to the rail, where he , promptly answered tb« usual questions asked him by Mr. Crum. His replys were prompt ana distinct, he was 37 years of age, Kad botn Ac Nyack. had a , common school education and had been -convicted for a, prior offeese. After giv- ing his \pedigree\ and District Attorney ..Lee moved sentence, the Judge asked him if he had anything foe say before /Sentence was pronounced. Moran said he hadn.few wordc to say, «i£d in a low, but distinct voice, said he .was guilty, .that be laid no knowledge of having shot at officer Colsey, that he did not even know him..he was crazed with drink at the time and would never imniu get in .trouble. The nervousness so noticeable in the Judge when he opened court ft week before had entirely disappeared,and after healing Moran he arose and without sophistry or an attempt,at giving. # lec- ture to the unfortunate £ellow, told him the court realised all he had said.; that he.ehonld consider himself fortunate iie was not oil trial or being aouteucod .in the Supreme Court for homicide which was due entirely to his bad .aim (Morau'e .bullet having juat .grazed Coisey's head,) that consideration .hod bjen given the de- fendant's plea of ,guilty oua tiie conse- quent saving .to Lhe County* that big being drank was uo legal excuse, and then pronounced sentence, giving Moran eight yea,ra in Sing Sing at hard labor .aud suspending sentence on the indlct- nient charging him with jail breaking- As the judge said \ejght years\ Moran convulsively strained at the neck band aiC his shirt otherwise glvlug no exhibi. tion that the severe sentence had any .effect upon him until he turned to follow the sheriff to thecall, when be heaved a deep sigh. The, maximum penalty for Morans offense Is fifieei. years, If ho be- haves himself in prison he will serve live years and two months. District Attorney Leo then moved the criminal calendar as follows : Edward C. Van Houten for assault lu the second fajree, Frank Comesky as counsel for Van Houten interposed a demurer to the Indictment as did Judge ltedmoud counsel for Springstead & McVeigh, who are charged with having kept |a Nlosel- in-the-Blot machine in their saloon. Louis Pauletta, the gamekeeper of the Rarnapo Park Association, who bad been iadioted for assault and robbery was ar- jdinged and through his attorney also entered a demurr. Tho demnrrs' will be argued before Judge Fallon on Monday, when if not sustained pleae of not gnilty will probably be entered and tho case set down for trial at the May term of court. District Attorney Leo moved the in- dictment against Frank Morris, Sidney Jones and Tony Pedazzie, the Tarry- town boys, who were charged with hav- ing attempted to steal a row boat from John Smith, of Piermont, last December- A lawyer named Drachman appeared for Morris and the other boys being without counsel, Judge Fallon assigned Benja- min Levison to defend them. Morris' lawyer demanded a separate trial for his client. The evidence showed the boys were fonnd with the boat in their pososslon, but they in turn swore they had found the boat adrift on the rocks and wero at- tempting to pull it off when discovered. As thore was no real evidence the boys bad stolen the boat or had attempted to steal it and as they bore good reputa- tions, the jury gave Morris the benefit of the doubt and acquitted him. Tke evidenca being the same in the case of the other two boys and a convict- ion under it almost impossible the in- dictments upon motion of Mr. Lee were dismissed. Surprise at The Hotel. A number of the young friend 6 of Miss ?Ina DeNoyelles tendered that young lady a surpiise party at her home in tho .United States Hotel, on Monday night. Tbe billiard room was converted into a bull room and tho company enjoyed a jnerry time dancing and playing games. The Haverstraw liunjo and Maudolin Club were present and did much to assist in the festivities. A feature of the even- ing's many pleasures were the humer- ous attempts to fasten the necktie on the dude. Miss Gussie Frankel came near- est to placing the necktie where it is generally woru aud lor this was awarded lirst prize, a silver shoe horn. Mr. Frank Lane was. a close second to Miss Frankel and was awarded a celluloid, silver mounted comb. At miduight the fair hostess invited her guests to tbe dinning room where a sumptuous repast was uwaiting them aud to which full uud com- plete justice was aone. Those present report having spent a very pleasant and enjoyable evening. Sleigh Riders Upset. A jolly party of young folks from Vulley Cottage, Congers and vicinity with visiting guests started ont for a straw ride on Monday evening which was of short duration Theyrhad hardly gone half a mile after tbe last pleasure seeker was safely and warmly tucked away in the bottom of the big -sleigh whon in crossing the rail- rord the sleigh upset, tumbling the oc- cupants iuto a big enow bank. The change from nice, comfortable quarters in a sleigh ito standing,j;p to one's knees lu a snowbank was not a pleasant one but was unavoidable. The collapse tem- porarily made the sleigh unfit for use, and much to .their dislike the party was compelled to walk to their .homes which they reached after midnight. In the parcy were Mr. and Mrs. .Derunda Mrs. J. H. Rabian, the Misses Minnie and JenniefUblan, Mw. Sophia F..and Misses Edna and Carrie Riely, Mrs. James Hartwlck«, Mies Marion Polhemus, Miss Dota Shannon, .Arthur Gilchrist of Valley Cottage, Mr. Bellls of Tappan. and the Misses J. M. Sullivan aud E, Lane of Haverstraw. $25 a Kiss. Twonty-ttve do.lara is tbe latest quo. tation on kisses at Ponghkeepsio. Mijb. Hartman weut into Mr. Markstcln's store to bny a pair of shoo strings. After handing over the cash Mr. M. fdll a victim to the charms of the customer. He kissed her. Then he kissed her agalu. She ran to a lawyer's office and said she had been insulted. The lawyer a.iid of course she had. That's his busi- ness. The case was presented to a jury before Judge Phlllius Wednesday uud they awarded the woinau $50 for the two aiuacks. Mrs. H. feels well repaid, but the lawyer wishes Mr. M. bad kissed her about sixty times. He went lu the case on halves and only gets $26, It is said. DEMOCRATIC EDITORS.

The executive comuiitteeof tho Demo- cratic Editorial association of the State of New York met in the reception room at tho TenEyck, last Saturday afternooD, with Mr. Albert E. Hoyt, of the Argun, chairman of the execntive committoe, in the chair. Among those present were Vice Presi- dents George M, Shnll, Enterprise, Mount Morris, ana Assemblyman Dan- iel D. Frisbie, Republican, Schoharie, Secretary ; Frank P. llnlette, Argus, North Tonawanda; Treasurer CharlesH. Buck, Republican, Glen Falls; Charles W, Davis, Rough Notes.

At a meeting of the Regents of the University of the State of New York, last week, the name of the Stony Point Union School was changed to tbe Stouy Point High School, and all the rights and privileges of a high school granted. The people of Stony Point are certainly to be congratulated on their progressive- ness. From the \Boar Swamp College\ of a few years ago to tbe present flue new building equipped with library, ap- paratus, and appliances second to none in the county, is certainly a pronounced advance. Much of the school's present success is due to the indefatigable efforts of Professor Sykes and his efficient corps of assistants. During the past year books to the value of over §130, have been add- ed to the school library. The various departments of the school are now grad- ed strictly on merit and a regular course of study from the a. b. c. of tho first year to the fourth year In the high school is being followed. Those interested in education and educatioual mutters would be well paid in visiting Stouy Point High School where they would be warmly welcomed by Professor Sykes. Trotters' Home. A complete transformation has taken place in the big Titus building on Liberty street, which was recently purchased by Mr. Fred. J. Gasman for use as a sale's and boarding stable. The aid stalls have been torn out and replaced with modem stalls, with iron mangers and other com- forts for man's \best friend.\ The in- terior has been painted and whitewashed giving the place a far different appear- ance from what it had a few weeks since when It was purchased. As a result of the renovation several of the flyers have chauged their place of abode and the owner's of some others are considering the benefits to be gotten from having their equine pets uuder one roof. Mr. Gasman expects a consignment of forty horses, of all grades, iu a few weeks when he will be able to supply the de- mands for all classes of horses from a llyer to a cart horae. RIGID EXAMINATIONS Changes Ordered by State De- partment of Education. TO GO IN EFFECT AUGUST 1. The New Regulations Governing Uni- form Examinations will be nore Rigid. Copies of the amended regulations governing the uniform examinations for teachers' certificates that will go into effect August 1, 1900, have beeen sent to School Commissioners and Superintend- ents by State Superintendent Charles R. Skinner. The following resume will be of particular interest to the educators of this county: Teachers' certificates issued by School Commissioiicis shall bo of three grades ?third, second and first?a training class certificate, and special certificates to be known as drawing, kindergarten, vocal music, and high school certificates. The number of examinations for each year has been reduced from 12 to 4. The rigidness of examination papers has beeu increased more thnu one hundred per cent., and the length of time for which certificates are issued corres- pondingly increased. I believe the time has come when we may still reduce the examination work, raise the standard of qualifications and issue teachers cortifi- ctes practically permanent. I believe that wo should require of teachers the broadest education possible, and when they show that they possess this educa- tion they should be relieved from the constant worry and -strain resulting from recurring examinations. It is my desire to liberalize the uniform regula- tions as much as posible and at the same time to prevent persons not possessing tbe requisite scholarship aud otherqual- ifications from entering the profession. Iu adopting the changes which have been ordered, various questions wilj arise in adjusting conditions under the present rules to those under the amond- ed rules, and in order that there shall be a uniform understanding of these questions, 1 have deemed It pertinent to discuss them in this general circular. After August 1, 1900, the questions shall be upon the present first grade basis and we shall not have two sets of questions, one known as the second and third grades, and the other as the first grade. All persons, however, who have oarned certificates under the present regulations, or who shall complete the work for certificates under the present rules In the April examination, will re- ceive such certificates August 1. For certificates of the third grade candidates will be examined in the 10 subjects in which they are now exam- ined aud they will be required to attain 75 per cent, in each subject. These cer- tificates will be valid for a period of one year. The only change therefore wbioh will be made in the requirementa for a certificate of thia grade, is the advance in the standard of the questions used in the examination and in requiring 75 per cent, instead of 65 per cent, iu school law. For a certificate of the second grade candidates wilt be examined in the 14 subjects lu which they are now exam- ined and will be required to attain 75 per cent, in all aubjects except drawing, in whioh they must attain 05 per cent. This certificate will be issued for a period of three years. Persons who have earned third grade certificates under these rules will be exempt from examination iu all subjects required for suoh certificates, and on at- taining the prescribed stauding in the four additional aubjecta during the time for.which their third grade certificates are valid, will be entitled to receive sec- ond grade certificates. Persona holding third grade certifi- cates issued under the rules now In oper- ation, will not be entitled to apply the standing ou whioh such third grade certificates were issued on that re- quired for a second-grade certificate, as such standing was earned in examina- tions on the second grade basis instead of ou the first grade basis. Such persons however will be allowed two years if necessary lu which to complete tbe work requirod for a certificate of the second grade under the new regulations. Persons holding certificates of tbe seo- ond grade issued nnder the present rules will be entitled to receive another sec- ond-grade certificate nnder tbe revised rules and will be allowed two years in which to complete the work for such second grade certificate. It is import- ant that all persons holding second- grade certificates under the present rules shall enter examinations August next and continne tbe work in each of the subsequent examinations until they have earned another certificate. Persons having earned certificates of the second grade under the merit rules, that is, having attained 90 per cent, in one or mere of the subjects on such cer- tificate, will be exempt from examina- tion therein for a period of two years, and during such period will be allowed to complete the work required for another certificate of the second grade. Certificates of the first grade earned under tbe revised rules will be issued for a period of 10 years and may be renewed upon their expiration from time to time without examination provided the hold- ers of such certificates have taught successfully for five of the ten years for which they were issued. It will be ob- served that these certificates will be made valid for twice the period for which they have been previously issued and that the condition of renewal Is simplified to the extent of requiring that those holding them shall have taught at least one-half of the time for which they were issued. It therefore seems advisa- able to advance somewhat the require- ments for certificates of this grade by including English composition and the philosophy and history of education and by requiring candidates to attain 75 per cent, in all subjects except drawing, in which they must attain 65 per cent. Persons who have attained 75 per cent, iu first grade examinations since January 1, 1898, will be exempt from examination in such subjects aud may complete the work for a certificate of this grade in any or all of the examina- tions held within three years from that date. Persons holding second grade certifi- cates issued under the merit rules, that is, certificates on which is recorded a standing of 00 per cent, in each subject will be exempt from examination in all such subjects for a certificate of the first grado and will be allowed three years in which to complete the additional sub- jects for first grade certificates. Persons holding certificates of the sec- ond grade issued under tho present rules and dated on or after August 1, 1899, will be allowed three years in which to earn a certificate of the first grade under the present rules. It will be observed from the above rulings relatlye to the issuance of first aud second grade certificates that we have accorded candidates the privileges to which they are entitled uuder the merit rules adopted In 1898. I am also disposed to be as liberal as possible to the teacher of successful ex- perience and all persons who have taught successfully for five years ;on second grade certificates will be exempt from examination in all sudjects cred- ited on their present second grade cer- tificates with a standing of 75 per cent. In response to a general demand from high school principals and from the su- perintendents of cities and of villages having 5,000 or more inhabitants for special qualification for high school teachers, I havo proscribed such qualifi- cations to take effect August 1, 1901, Examinations for all persons required to qualify uuder rule /of such regulations will be held in January and August of each year, beginning with 1901. The dates will be the same as those for the regular uniform examinations, which are tbe second Thursday aud Friday in eaoh of tbeao months. Examluationa will be held In each of the cities aud of the villas of $5,000 or more inhabitants, provided a requisition is filed with this office at least ilO days before the dates of these examinations. Candidates desir- iug to qualify under this rule may also attend any regular state examination tor life state certificates which is held dnriug the last week of August iu each year aud which will be hold dnriug tbe current year, August 20 to 24, inclusive. Census Enumerators. E. M Gordon, of Port Jervis, census supervisor of this district, has been noti- fied by the Census Bureau that all ap- plicants for appointments for enumerat- ors must pass an examination in pen- mauship and figures. The examination is not competitive, bat is merely to dem- onstrate the applicant's competence or Incompetence. Each person seeking ap- pointment must make a written applica- tion to Mr. Gordon, In which he answers several pertinent questions as to age, experience au(l general knowledge of material faots. About 102 men are to be appointed in Orange, Sullivan and Rock- land dißtriot, and a very large number of applications have already been sent iu. FUSS WINS PRIZE. Pockets $500 and The Amateur Championship. Alderman Foss is now champion of the class \A smeteur billiard players. He won the honor and the cup by defeating Wyman C. McCreary, In the final game of the tournament last Friday night. McCreary was last years champion, and as each had won four games in the present contest the interest was intense. When tbe game started both were very nervons and a side scene took place to the delight of the fifteen hundred spectators. McCreary appeared the most confident of the two and offered to bet the man who is after butter for his bread $500 on the result. Foss promptly accepted the wager, and if purchased at the prevailing mar- ket price, will be able to purchase a ton of cows grease, with the St. Louis music teacher's coin. Both men were neryous, but regard- less of that they both mdde some clover plays, which were cheered to the echo. The game was closely contested, and when it was over, and Foss had scored his necessary 400 points, McCreary had 3514 to his credit. A dinner was given at the Knicker- bocker Club on Saturday night. Mr. Foss was the the $1000 challenge club. He also received a hand- some gentleman's toilet set of thirty pieces for finishing first, besides a gold medal for making the highest run in the tournament. McCreary was presented with a hand- some clock, for making the highest sin- gle average, and J. De Mun Smith re- ceived a liqener set for finishing third. Mr. Foss does not become the owner of the trophy until he wins it three times. Well Worth Attending. Lincoln ,T. Carter's new war play en- titled \Chattanooga\ which has been produced with such success In the larger cities aud which has been praised by the press for its splendid action and scenic effects, will be tbe next attraction at tho Opera House on Tuesday evening, Feb. 27th. The name of Lincoln J. Carter in the theatrical world has become synonymous with a class of plays in which the realis- tic predominates aud which appeal di- rectly to the feelings. He has written and produced a number of very strong attractions, some taken from scenes of every day life in tbe great cities and many of them exploiting pertinent events in the history of the country. His latest effort \Chattanooga\ is a war play in which there is a fair divisiou of hero- ism among the Northern aud Southern soldiers and throughout, is sweetened aud atrengtheued by a beautifnl love story, which never fails to please and touch the delicate chords of human feel- ing. \Chattanooga\ has been produced with greatsuccessin both sections of the country and Mr. Carter has been in re- ceipt of hundreds of letters from old veterans, thanking him for hia efforts in producing a play which has teuded to drive out the feeling of sectionalism and beget in American hearts a love of conn- try. \Chattanooga\ will be pro- duced at the Opera House on Tues- day night, Feb. 27th.
