J' 'Ilk 1- THE EDITOR'S OBSERVATIONS. Hill drawn tlri people and Morton draws the bung. Chemung Connty will this fall givo the largest Democratic majority that it has ever given. Hill began hi* pnblio life in Elmira, from which the pei plo sent him to the Legislatuie 17 years ago, safely guard- ing the triißt repose d iu hini. Has anybody beard of the erection of snob buildings anywhere to hold the people who want to see and hear Mor- ton, or his sponsor and creator. Piatt? David B. Hill is t\ speak in Elrnira 'to-night, und us the largest building m the city was unable to accommodate the expected throng, an immense au- ditorium capable of seating 15,000 peo- ple has been ereoted by the Democrats for the occasion. The Democratic candidates are well qualified in every particular. A vote tor Daird ami Leitner means a vote for 'he competent administratiouship of 'the Coroner's office. Judge Reimer, ?with his long und valuable experience, :ts just the man for Justice of Sessions. \Ueusons why\ every Demoorat and \oitizrfus of all classes should support »hw Demonratic ticket. For Member of Assembly, J. Arthur Polhemus, a young man, respected by all iu his native town. Honest, generous, with ability to lepresent this county iu Al- bany next Wiuter, It is a safe statement that the public man who is strongest where he is most intimately known, who always carries his home city and his home county, ?even when pnblio sentiment runs against bis party, und when his op- ponents are the strongest and cleanest exponents of the opposition, is a good and true mun to tie to. John F. Shankey for Sheriff is just the man the people wutitiu the Sheriff's office. Conservative, puinstuking, oblig- ing and courteous to all. A solid, re- liable business man, with u reputation such as any man might be proud of, Mis administration of the Sheriffs office during his previous inoumbenoy \u25a0was suoh as to eutitle him to the vote of every citizen There is absolutely no reason why a Democrat should give a vote to a single Republican candidate iu Rockland Couuty this year. The names on the Demoaratio ticket are those of men w>o are not only fully oompotent to dis- charge the duties of the offices for which they have been nominated, but wlio have for years given loyal support to the Democratio ticket. They deserve and should receive the vote of every Demoorat. There is just one way for all Demo- crats to vote this Fall. All who oan reud should, under no oiroumitances, take a paster from anyone, but when they enter the polling place and get their ballots from the billot, olerss, select the ballot with David li. Hill's nume ou top, und George W. Ruirner last; all the Constitutional amendment ballots \against.\ No Democrat will have performed his full duty unless he slndl do this. When the Chairman of the Republi- can Executive Committee hud himself nominated for Congress at Middletowu, he announced he would make no per- sonal oauvuss. thinking lie had a walk over. Hut since the Democrats uomi uated Eugene S. Ives, \Bos* Boodle I3enuie\hns evidently beoomo fright- ened and has abandoned his desk at State headquarters, and is now hustling around Orange and Sullivan Counties. No use Mr. Odell, Eugene S Ives has captured your strongholds. The people lealize that iu Mr Ives they have a man fully oampetent to assume the importunt duties of Congressman, and they propose electing him. At the Republican meeting iu Car- negie Hall on Saturday eveniug, Dr. Purkhurst, the political nondescript, said: \Victory is upproaching. My um- bition is that we should win so superbly and Dually that it shall destroy the hopes of these rascals, uther for resur- ruction iu this life or iu the life that is to oome.\ Think oi (bat lor tbe public utterance of a Christian minister I Is it any wonder that people sometimes thiuk that Boh Ingeri-01l is right. Yet the same crazy Purkhurst preached to a large c ngregation on Sunday night, that there is forgiveness for all. What a Republican bigot Parbhurst is uuy- way ? The relutions between Grover Cleve- land and David B Hill, us is well known, are not friendly. Notwith- standing this, Mr. Cleveland, when a candidate, received a loyal support Horn Mr. Hill. Now that Mr, Hill has been made his party's candidate it would seem as if he was entitled to receive from Mr. Cleveland a support equally loyal, but present appearances : indicate that such support will not be piven. The reason for these things is not hnrd to determine. Mr. Hill is a Democrat, Mr. Cleveland's affiliations are somewhat doubtful. There are a large number of Democrats who per- sonally disliked Grover, but who voted for him two years ago on principle. We imagine it would require an extra dose of harmony oordial to induce them to repeat thf performance. After leu years of continuous sucaesß \Peak's Bad Boy\ is still one of our leading faice comedies. The piece since it was here last has been entirely rewritten and is replete with appro- priate music and strong specialties. The Drst act still retains the famous grocery store, kept by Sohultz, the German grooer. The second act shows Major Peck's home, and tlie last, the pionic soene at Clearwater woods in Milwau- koe, Wis. Nothing has been neglected iu scenery and costumiug, The cast is the strongest ever put out with the play. Manager Wilson has acquired a well de'erved popularity in the United States and Canada lor his painstaking efforts in putting ou all his attractions with the most scrupulous oure. \Peck's Bad Boy\ Company will appear at the Opera House ou Monduy evening, Nov. sth. Oue hears a great deal nowadays about \The dishouesly of Domocrats.\ Aliou' the most dishonest thing po- litically that bus come under our obser- vation recently, is that of the Republi- can State mauagers iu sending out State campaign matter under Congress- ional \Franks\ in order to beat the Government out of postage. During the last week the Post Offioe received large bugs filled entirely with matter of this kind, most of the envelopes con- taining Republican literature regarding the late Constitutional Convention. In order to not leave iheoiselves liable to the law, a small Congressional pamphlet was also euclosed iu each envelope. Nearly all of the packages whioh oame here bore the \fraun\ of Oongressman Joseph W, Baboock, of Wisconsin, What saints the Republican hypocrites are 1 Not being satisfied with dis franchising several hundred thou- sand Democrats, they beat the Demo- cratic Adiuiuisi ration out of postage, and tbeu have the \gall\ to ask Demo- crats to vole for their candidates. JONES POINT. Oapt. Geo. W. Leut is now untioi- pating a trip to Florida for hia health. The understanding is at present that Capt. G. W. Lent hopes to be our next Postmaster, providing that the qualifi- cations ure acceptable, BARDONIA. Jaoob HaKgor and family have moved iu the residence of Mrs. John Borden. The German Presbyterian Church will hold a magio lantern i-xhibition iu the uear future, A new Catholic oharch is to be ereuted iu this vicinity iu the near fu- ture, in all probabiliiy before April Ist, \JO. The building lot has beeu (to- nated by Mrs. Itichurd Smith. Chicken thieves huvc been unwel- come visitors in this neighborhood. Ou Sunday and Monday nights the coops of Henry Sauer, George Germnnd and Mrs. E. T. Wyldes were ransacked and several hundred valuable fowls stolen. To add insult to injury the thieves ohopped the heads of the fowls iu the door yards of their owners. COMBINATION FORMED Two Factions Now in the Board of Trustees. Alderman McKenzie Baffled? TnE Combination Say The Main Street Spring Must Be Pro- tected. The Board of Trustees were to have held a gpeoinl meeting on Tuesday evening lor tbe purpone of taking some action regarding tbe Main street spring, but as tbe time for calling tbe meeting to order went by, those present dis- plaje l an uneasy feeling, as it was evi- dent that a majority of tbe Board bad oonae to some understanding as to their part in the matter, and had made up their minds to stay away from tbo meeting. About a score of prominent residents were present, all of whom were interested in the expected Motion of the Board. YVbou tbe Board li-ld tlnir nueliug last week it was decided to adjourn until tbe 14th inst. and Alderman McOabe was appointed a committee to obtain an estimate of tbe cut and plans and specifications for ttie protection of tbe spring. Why and by whom the meetiug was called we have been unalile to learn, 'l'bo custom in the Board has been that when a special meeting waa to be held, the call Mould usually be signed by a majority of the Board. This could not have bt en done in this case, as it was evident that, the Messrs. iirabm,MoCabe, Gour- ley and l'ierney baa enteied iuto a combination to thwart any scheme of Alderman McKenzie, wbo, it seems has an idea tbat be is tbe only member of tbe Board wbo kuows what tbe village wants. At tbe last meetiug Mr. Mc- Kenzie unfolded bis plau, wbiob was to lay a.fla<, walk direotlv over the water- ing trough aud extend a pipe from the spring under tbe walk to the oust side, where a drinking fountain would be erected. The Board at tbe time did not take kindly to the plan, and as stated, Mr. MaOabe whs appointed a oommittee to procure estimates, eta., to be reported to tbe full Board at a meet- ing designated to to held on Nov. 14tb, it was supposed tbat nothing would be done in tbe meantime. But it seems tbat Mr. McKenzie, wbo as Chairman of tbe Street Oommittee, suddenly dis- played a great deal of anxiety aud in terest iu the laviqg of tbe flag walk in the Conger property direotly in front of whioh the spring is located. This action appears strange for several rea- sons, the most important being that Mr. Conger is in Europe, aud tbe fact that the village employees performed tbe work of laying the walk, while the Street Fund was in such a poor con- dition. Iu laying tbe walk flags were laid direotly over the watering trough, leaving just room enough for one to place a pail under the pipe. From this it would appear that Alderman Mo- Kenzie had made up bis mind to carry out his scheme, but for ouoe be failed. Mr. McKenzie has generally done about as he pleased in the Board. His recent alliauce with Mr. Fox iu that gentleman's attack upon tbe Fire Com- mittee, in virtually charging them with ucoeptiug a bribe from the Boston Woven Hobo Company, has caused tbe other members o( tbe Board to make a combination. The attack at the Trustees' meeting ia said by those in- terested to have been followed by an attempt by Mr. McKenzie to have them indicted, aud tbey now propose to re- taliate. While Messrs. McKenzie aud Fox were waitii g for their colleagues, thev were holdtug an impromptu meet iug at tbe spring, where a decision was readied that tbey would not attend the meetiug, aud as there would be no quorum there would be no meeting. Our reporter met the stayaways later in the evening und from them learned tbe foregoing us to their position. The members of the Fire Committee are talking strongly of bringing libel suits ugaiust tbe members of the unholy ulliauce. They also say that Mr. Mo Keuzie's water pipe, which extends from the spriug, near Hudson aveuue to tbe Aldeiinau's residence iu Front street will remain unused, as they say that while the Aldermau claims to have paid for the laying of the pipe from Maiu aud West streets, tbe village paid for the layiug of tbe pipe Irorn the spring to West street, and should tbe Aldermau attempt to use it, they will appear before the Grand Jury iu per- son aud not write auv letters like the Aldermen did, The outoome will be uwaited with interest. NOVEL EXPERIENCE. Ou Weduesday lust Edward Carroll, Dauiel Spellman, John Cassiduy,Thom'is Nolan aud Mtohael Cassiday Blurted in a tkitl' to row from the brickyard ol (Juliill, Carroll & Co. to Fort Mont- gomery to purchase wood. The party look the skiff off a briok barge and rowed out in the river aud caught a north bouud tow. The party boarded tile oaual boats in the tow and were unable to get in the skiff when the tow was passing their destination, owing to the spted at which they were proceed- ing, aud were campelled to remain on the canal boats until they reached Kingston, Thutsday moruiug. The expedition being hurriedly arranged aud not auticipatiug such au extended trip, Hie liuauces ol the party were iu a weak condition, On Friday morniug they started down the river ou a south bouud tow, whioh was delayed aud was compelled to anchor Fri my night, near \u25a0Tones I'uiut. The continuous absence of the party caused considerable alarm among the respective futilities of the party, so much so, that parties started out on Saturday morning in Bearoh for their bodies, us the general impression being that they been overlakeu by the stnrm and their frail craft upset or swamped. There was muoh joy in their homes ou Saturday morning, when (bey nrrived borne safe from their (rip. CUTLER ANSWERED His Floundering to Catch the Firemen's Vote a Dismal Failure?Mr. Nooney's Keply to Ocb Inquiry. The Times last week gave,as we wore liably informed, Mr. Cutler's position upon tbo Firemens' bill last Winter, in tbo Assembly. Mr. Cutler at ouco jumped into print with a deuiul of the statement about bis position in tbe matter. The Times believes thut the interests of the people would be best served by tbe defeat of Air. Cutler, and fearing tbat possibly an injustice bad been done the llepublioan candidate, aud it being our policy to treat our politi- cal opponents fairly,ivobert B. Noone.y, of 174 Oitiul str et. New York City, President of the Firemens' Benevolent Association was appealed to lor a cor- rect stateuieiit of Mr. Cutler's position. A perusal of Mr. Nooney's letter shown that the firemen of New York State have little use for the llimapo states- man. Thi* letter is us follows: New Yokk, Oot. 29th, 1894. Michael MoCaiie Deah Sib: In response to your in- quiry cone-n iug the treatment of the bill (No. 475) received at the bauds of Mr. Oiis H. Cutler, of Sufferu, iu your count'., I would reply. Mr. Cutler was seleoted to preseut our bill for the reason tbat be represented a constituency within whose boundaries there were only Voluuteer Firemen. That there was no part of liocklaud County whero any paid department of firemen were iu existeuce, aud thut we felt his natural sympathies must be with the widows aud thu orphans of volunteer firemen, at a time when an appeal would be made for an extension of the time for the collection of tho two per cent, tax on the premiums of for- eign fire insurance companies doing business in the city of New York, whioh we had ei joyed «ince 1849, wbeu the act was paused by tbe Legislature for our benefit alouo. Our cause was so jusl, our widows, orphans and iudigent firemen so worthy, and in most cases so needy, aud the number of snob had bueu in- creasing 6o oontiuuously, that we did uot expect any opposition. But to our great surprise, among the first was Mr. Cutler, who told us \that we ought to divide tbe tHX with the paid firemen of our city,\ who never had rendered any services to the community without beiug very well paid for those services. \Aud tbat we should not ask lor tbe tax for teu years more, because the widows and aged firemen would probably die off before the teu years expired.\ From our experii nee with Mr. Cut- ler at Albany the past Winter, the vol- unteer fireman, his wishes and bis in- terests, tbat he takes very little stock iu, or that he will go very far to serve. I enclose you a circular that was pre pared by our Secretary, that showed the steady iuorense iu our beneficiaries for tbe precediug fourteen years, as well as the iucrease iu our receipts from tbe two per cent, tax for tbe same period. Yours truly aud thanklully, Koiißitr B. Nooney, President Association Exempt Firemen of City of Now York, A BAD SMASH UP. Mr. Asbury Shav, of SulTtsru, ouirie to Haverstraw ou Saturday hint to visit frieuds aud transact some business, ao compauied by his father-in-law, air. A. Bailey. Shortly after sis o'olock they started for hoiuo and were driving up Broadway i»u<l liad reached MoGowan's corner, wheu their horse became fright- ened at a heap of gravel whioh was iu the road and upon whioh a red lamp was placed. The gravel iu the road was placed there by the Gas Company, who are m iking excavations in the streets for the laying of their gas pipes. At the place where the accident oc- curred the street is quite narrow. The excavation being made on the west side of the street, the earth beiug thrown on the east side of the trench, leaving only room enough lor a wagou to drive through. As there is a steep incline from the east side of the street, there was a rail along the edge of the em- bankment, whioh was supposed to be htrong enough to prevent any accidents of this kind, but this was only a sup- position, for wheu the horse shied at the obstruction he struck the rail, whioh broke like a match, precipitating men, horse and wagou down the bank. The men were severely injured, Mr. Shay being badly bruised about the head aud h'g«, the wagou beiug smashed into kiudliug wood, while strange to say the horse did uot receive a scratch. It is said by Mr. Shav's friend that he will iustitutu a suit for damages. If he does it will be determimd who is liable, the village or the Gas Gompeuv. The lattei gave the trustees what was sup- posed to be a bond to idemuify the vil- lage for any just suoh accidents. SPRING VALLEY.

The services were of a vuiy iutei eating char- acter. Rev. John Gilmour, of Congers, acted has moderator. He introduced Rev. Mr. Leiper, who made the open- ing prayer und reud the scripture lesson. The Rev. Dr. Chas. Beanie, of Middletowu, N. Y., was to preaoh the sermon, Uut being unable to be present, ho sent Rev. Dr. Bou?r, of Florida. N. Y., to preaoh the installation sermon.

Frank Briutnoll, who was indicted by the Rockland County Grand Jury last week for burglary and coufiued in the jail at Nuw City, made a desperate »t- -tempt to eßoape on Sunday night, at midnight, and received a pistol shot in the back from an officer's revolver. During the enlarging of the jail Offioors Lubbe and Justriob, of Nyaok, aro employed to guard the premises in order that no prisoner may esoape. The present condition of the iail makes this necessary, as the temporary quar- ters oocupied iu the jail are not as secure as the cells will bo when the building is finished. Britnell occupies a cell in the lower part of the building, and thinHng that lie could escape from his quarters there and breathe the air of freedom again, lie formed a plan and made a desperate bat painfuly aiißuccefßfiil attempt to oarry it oat on Sunday night. In some way he procured a file aud filed ( S the head of one of the bolts that ran through a hinae of the door. This ac- complished, he, with the aid of oilier, prisoners, pried the door open with a plank, and then ran ont, Unfortunately for him, however, the two officers on gnard outside detected his plan and awaited developments. Offioer Lubbe eat in a window directly over the door through which Brintnefl Intended to escape. He heard the prisoner working hard to carry out his project, and watohed with considerable interest the result. As soon us Brint- nell succeeded in getting the door open he started for the outside. Before lie had made mnoh headway, however, Lubbe brought a club down on hia bend with terrific force. Recovering from the effeot of the blow almost instantly, Britnell started on a rapid run down the lawn, with the officers in pnrauit. He refused to obey the call to stop, and jjubbe and Jus- trich fired several pistol shots, one of whioh took effeot aud causnd him to fall to the ground. The officers soon took him iu charge, returned with him to the jail, and summoned Dr. Van Houten. Upon examination the doo- tor found the man had received a pain- ful shot in the back. The ballet was extraoted, and the dootor prcnounoed the wonnd not necessarily daugerous. Brintnell was afterward looked up in an iron cage, so that any further at- tempt at escaping would be impossible. It is believed that had the man not been discovered in his midnigLt fl ! ght, other prisoners would have followed him. causing a general j til delivery. TOMKINS COVE.
