Tho Fish and Game Commissioners of the State are not in the best of humor over the treatment that UK-V are receiving ut the hand of the ooliticians. They claim that were shoved to one sitli1 for the benelit 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'. l'rolhinghainr secretary and treasurer. Mr. Fonhingliam is a promi- nent Wall street broker, residing at Mount Arlington, Morris county, and is Mayor of Ilopalcor.g. Like all the cmn- missioniws, he is a man of means, and the time he spends in the commission is spent without thought of compensation. Mr. Frothiniiluun was asked Regarding the situation, and he expressed himself fn-cly: "1 should like to know whether the Board of Fish and Game Commissioni'rs is to be considered a political body or a body devoted purely to the protection of tislTand game in the State of New Jersey. The present Board of Commissioners took ollice on May 29, It is composed of Colonel Georue Pfeiffer, Jr., a merchant of Camdeu; W. Campbell Clark, a manu- facturer of Newark; Parker W. a leading New York lawyer in Summit, and mysell. The board, after electing Col. Pfeifl'er as president and myself as secre- tary and treasurer, decided to conduct the oltice entirely upon business princi- 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 war- 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 recom- mends from one to three men for the ap- pointment of warden, and yet, if we sug- 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.''

FINISHING UP THE BILLS, Governor Orlggs Will Sig" a Few Today and Then.File the Others. Governor Griggs is at the State House today, and this afternoon will probably dispose of the legislative bills still in his hanJs. A few of these he will sign, and the others he will file with the State Librarian. Senator Hoffman was at the State House today for the lirst time in seven weeks. The Senator still shows the ell'ects of his illness. Up to the time of going to press the Governor had signed the following bills. Assembly No. 19G, authorizes Boards of Freeholders to appropriate to hospitals for county patients. Assembly 207, authorizes the appoint- ment of Deputy Police Court Clerks in Jersey City and' Newark; Assembly, No. 2S4, provides for a medical examiner for Jersey Gin's Fire Board; Senate, No. llfi, the remaining one of Senator Voor- hees' bills, providing that lawyers in damage suits must file a, written copy ol the contract made with clients and giving the court power to appoint a physician 3 investigate the extent of the injuries eceived by the person bringing suit.

EDWARD EYEHfflS SUSPICIONS, Jone 23d Set hi the Ifeoion High School, OR, BOM 10 MAKE THE ADDRESS, The Maftir Will be Funished by a Chorus and the Ceeiliau Club Composed of Sine Young Interest- Ing Fads and About the Old diatom of Having Supply the Literary Programme. The commencement of the Trenton High School will occur at Tajlor Opera House on June and the occasion will be one of special prominence from tIn- tact that Trenton's new anil greater High School ia now a thing of certainty and will be a malter which will be publicly rejoiced over, "in all probability, upon this occasion. The Rev. J. Richards of the State M. E. Church, will de- liver the address of the evening, and his subject will be "The Public School Idea." The music will be furnished by a chorus from the High School, led by Mr. Charles M. Hatterslej, and by the Ceciliun Glee Club, compose.! of nine ladies of the High School, who organized the early part of the present year, and who, having excellent native ability, together with the advantaze of a considerable amount of musicaUraining, have already attained a high degree of excellence. This Glee Club is composed of Miss Emma Lair, Miss Helen Gill and Miss Minnie Pierce, sopranos: Miss Bessie Dye, Miaa Nellie Andrews and Miss May Han- cock, second sopranos; Miss Jennie Case, Miss Mabel Prediger and Miss Ethel Bond, 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 clas? is a good sized one with an excel- lent record there is no doubt but what a first class showing will be made on com- mencement 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 (jssa> subjects generally con- nected 'with such an occasion, it will be remembered that in the past few years, so far as the Trenton Hizh 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 stimulous 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 least.what 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 enter- tainment is an address by some dis llnguistied orator secured by the com- mittee in charge. This year, as stated, it will be Dr. Boyle. This revolution in commencement pro- 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- teresting address, snparceded 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 oat-n- 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 unu- sual and deplorable occurrence, but that was the state of affairs ut Judge Coutier's Central Police Court this morning. Tin- boy's name is George Beins, and he was committed to await the action of the grand jury in default of bail. The youthful criminal lias an interest- ing history. He was formerly at Samuel K. Wilson's farm, from- which properly, it is alleged he stole a large (juantiu of articles of (liflerunt kinds. 'After that he pilfered a nuanlity of chickens from Charlie Walters in broad daylight. His escapade was the most serious he 1ms indulged so far as known. Ben Walton's horse and wagon was stolen by him and Beans, who then resided on New Willow street, rode oil' with the rig in company with another youth in out not in crime who has not as jet been secured. The couple started oil through Pennsylvania and the young fellow Beabb has just been secured. This theft occur- red in the latter part of April. A feature about the case has been the work of Patrolman Higgins, who for nearly live months has been collectin_ evidence against the boy. The petty larceny charges were at first being worked on by him but later the grand larceny occurred and made the case a more serious one. There are two kinds of Bicycles Columbias, and others. None other is "just as good." E. S. Applegute nornmg on a man who last night en- tered the judge's barber shop on Il.ui- over street.

The man's name was John a police court character of some promi- nence. At about four o'clock this morn- ing three Associated District messenger boys heard a man In the place, which is next door, and one of them went to notifj Patrolman James Laird, at State and Broad streets. Laird responded and arrested Bell in the shop. When bell said in Court that he went to the shop to a shaie, Judfc-e Coutier exclaimed: What'.' At four o'clock in the morn- I "-UPSS not! At that time, any- how, you could'Dt get in the place. It was locked up. You crawled over transom.

Edward Everett, of 1223 South Clinton venue, tbis city, 1ms suspicions that the 'Mrs. Everett" who committed suicide n the Colonnade Hotel. New York, last veek, may be the wife of his brother lenry Everett, of Hornerstown, this tale. Mr. Everett wrote yesterday to he police authorities of New York, in- orming them that he might be able dentify the woman. This morning Mr. Everett, who is em- ployed with the Union Cash Register lompany, said his suspicions were .ronsed'by the published discription of the suicide, and were further prompted )y the fact that his brother's wife was at one time employed ih a Boston shirt actory as a forelady. Mr. Everett does not, however, .know that his brother's wife is missing. He has not heard from Ilia brother or the lalter's wife for some Lime. He has written to Hornerstown lo liis brother to ascertain if Harry's wife is home or not, and informing his brother of his suspicions. A Wonderful Escape. George Gale, of this -city, anil H. II. Johnson, of Beverly, had a narrow escape from death yesterday afternoon at Bnrl- ington. They were engaged in pnttins the top-piece on a sixty-toot chimney when a heavy wind storm came up, and a sudden gust blew the scaffolding, upon which the men were at work, from under them. I Gale grasped the of the chimney, but Johnson came down with the scaffold- ing, but escaped with a sprain of Ms right leg and a thorough 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 Janu- ary, 1S92, 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- mencement days did not correctly repre- sent school work, but was "highly doc- 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 sixteen- 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, socmed lo be among the necessities of Uie occasion, and tbe expense devolved not only upon graduates and parents, bulalso upon hosts and relatives who sent presents. Two remedies for the latter evil were con- sidered-either to regulate the that such expenses would be neither ne- cessary 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 commissioners chose the latter course..

Carpenter Reed Says There ia Too Much Disorder In the Myers' Household Next Door. A matter at Police Headquarters this morning was the complaint of Carpenter L. T. Reed, of No. 151 East Rose street, who made a disorderly charge against hia neighbors at No. 153, Henry Myers and wife. Last night, he said, Henry wanted some money to buy a pair of shoes, but hia wife had all the cash. Then commenci'd a pitched battle, lirst of words, and then ol blows.

The degroe depends upon whether or noi there was an intention to take life. "Yon are npt a trial continued the justice, "but are only to hear the evi- dence of the State, and determine merely whether there is a probable cause of guilt. If so, you are to Indict." Only one other matter was referred to in the charge, ami that was tue illegal voting of certain parties. The court stated it had been informed that parties deprived of the right of sufferage, not- withstanding the fad, do vote at elec- tions. By law persons convicted of cer- tain offenses are deprived of Una privil- ege of voting, and it afterwards they do so vof, they are guilty of an additional violation of the law, and are subject to fine and imprisonment.

Uppertendom thinks it is too deuced bad that everybody should have taken to ride the bicycle, and say that the practice is getting entirely too common for the swell set to indulge in it longer. That is really too bad. Large numbers of shad were taken early yesterday morning at the various fisheries around Lambertville. As many as 500 were taken in one haul. The large numbers of shad tbis-year in this sectfon is attributed to two reasons. The stock- ing and protecting of the fish by law, and the limiting of the length of the Gloucester nets.
