n C A open till 9 o'clock evening NEWSPAPER Fish and Game Commissioners Object to Patronage Tho Fish and Game Commissioners of the State are not in the best of humor over the treatment that are receiving ut the hand of the They claim that were shoved to one for the of certain politicians and that the members of the Legislature seemed to consider that the commission existed to promote parly patronage The uio.'t active of the commissioners is Howard 1 secretary and treasurer Mr is a nent Wall street broker residing at Mount Arlington Morris county and is Mayor of Like all the he is a man of means and the time he spends in the commission is spent without thought of compensation Mr was asked Regarding the situation and he expressed himself 1 should like to know whether the Board of Fish and Game is to be considered a political body or a body devoted purely to the protection of game in the State of New Jersey The present Board of Commissioners took on May 29 It is composed of Colonel Georue Pfeiffer Jr a merchant of W Campbell Clark a facturer of Newark Parker W a leading New York lawyer in Summit and mysell The board after electing Col as president and myself as tary and treasurer decided to conduct the entirely upon business ples to the best of our ability It is however the general opinion of sonf members of the Legislature that we should cater to their political wants and it is a common remark among the members of the Senate and Assembly that they vote this Commission certain sums of money yearly to defray the expenses of wardens etc and that they should have the right of appointing such dens emphatically denies that right We take the stand that we want only men who we feel confident will work for the best interests of the State and not merely for the purpose of drawing the salary of a month Nearly every member of the Legislature mends from one to three men for the pointment of warden and yet if we gest to any of these applicants that we are willing to appoint them deputy wardens without salary not one of them cares to accept the position and still the deputy warden has exactly the same powers as the warden It's a beauty What?

altos The accompany 1st is Miss Ada Darlymple Supervising Principal Gregory will as usual award the diplomas Commissioners Frank Alliaire and Dr William A Clark are the committee in charge of the event and as this year's is a good sized one with an lent record there is no doubt but what a first class showing will be made on com- evening When the public read that Dr Boyle will deliver an address and at the same time fail to read the many names of class members accompanied with oration titles or subjects generally con- with such an occasion it will be remembered that in the past few years so far as the Trenton school is con- cerned a complete revolution has taken place in the matter of commencement day exercises For years in tact almost from the time whereof the memory of man runneth not to the it had been the custom to have the members of each outgoing class aid m some manner in providing the interesting features of the programme and commencement day had to be looked upon as one of the most delightful experiences of a student's life This appearing before the public to dis- play the results of tha educational work spent upon them was indeed a to many if not all to stay in school until graduation and thus complete the course and in addition the occasion placed the school members before the public and showed to some extent at the school could do for its pupils These were the advantages of the old system but so many objections were the system was abandoned and today only the valedictorian takes part in the programme and the feature of the is an address by some dis orator secured by the com- in charge This year as stated it will be Dr Boyle This revolution in commencement grammes took place in 1893 when at the exercises then held at Taylor Opera House Professor Robert Ellis Thompson of Philadelphia with a profound and in- address the class members with their essays and orations and occasional original poems This perhaps was more edifying but certainly not more interesting from a point of local interest and although there was a decided majority who endorsed the change yet to this day a small but est minority deplores it The fact of the matter is that there has A Hoy Less Than Sixteen Years of Age Charged With Various Thefts A boy but 1C years of age before the court on a charge of grand larceny and two charges of petty larceny is an sual and deplorable occurrence but that was the state of affairs ut Judge Central Police Court this morning boy's name is George Beins and he was committed to await the action of the grand jury in default of

shaking up The Fire Department's hook and ladder truck was taken to the scone and Gale was taken from his perilous position Hill's Boer is o k on tap at Tony's Noi 108 and Broad St been such a diversity of opinion on this point that every conceivable stand has taken by some one or another In ary the Commissioners of Education went so fur as to discuss the project of absolutely abolishing the High School commencement and a resolution to that effect was offered but not passed Tho general objection to old custom has been that the exhibition of work on com- days did not correctly sent school work but was highly to use the phraseology of Super- vising Principal Gregory in an old report The interruption to study attendant upon giving a great portion of time to preparing a paper to be read by a year-old girl which would go over the heads of an audience of intellectual giants was not considered as time well spent and this was the main reason for the change but not the only one Others were the fact lhat parents were beginning to look upon the expense of graduating a child as more or less of a nuisance Class emblems llowers in profusion presents innumerable and if a girl a handsome gown lo be among the necessities of Uie occasion and tbe expense devolved not only upon graduates and parents upon hosts and relatives who sent presents Two remedies for the latter evil were con- to regulate the that such expenses would be neither or possible or do away with the old custom and after some discussion whether correctly or not is of course a matter of argument the
