It provides that In such Judicial dis

rpiarterly as now provided by law. It
ts not, however, to apply to Judges of
the orphans' court.
The salary of tho judges at present is
14,000 per annum. For a long time
there has been a feeling that the
Judges In what might be called the sec

Not Believed to Have Caused
the Alleged Assault.

New York, Feb. 1. Thomas G. Har
ker. who shot the Rev. John Keller
nt Arlington, N. J Sunday morning,
was arraigned In court at Kearney
town hall today. It had beqn ex
pected that Unrkr would make a
statement In regard to the shooting,
but he did not do so.
After the recorder had read tho
charge to Marker accusing hi in of at
tempting to kill Mr. Keller, the de
fendant, by advice of counsel, waived
examination. Ho was thereupon com
mitted without ball, to await tho re
sult of the minister's injuries. On tho
way Barker reiterated his statement
that hs was driven to desperation by
bis wife's charge against tho minister,
to the effect that the latter had as
saulted her. and that he felt Justified
In shooting Keller.
Mr. Keller's condition Is serious, and
his doctors are divided on tho question
of the probability of his recovery.
Now that the first wave of excite
ment following the shooting has
abated, the concensus of opinion in tho
Newark suburbs Is that the accusa
tions made by Mrs. Ibirkor to her bus
lviiul against tho rector were the re
sult of halluelnntlon. It Is believed
that In her suffering from nervous
prostration for the last few months,
Mrs. Barker conceived the Idea that
the Rev. Mr. Keller had done hor
harm and brooded so much over it that
in her broken condition of health it
became fixed In her mind as a reality.
This theory Is borne out by tho un
wavering protestations of his Inno
cence made by the victim of the trag
edy, whose character and reputation
have always been without blemish.
Mrs. Tiarker Is still prostrated at her
home from hysteria, ami only her at
tending physicians are allowed to see
her. Among thoo who believe Mr.
Keller Innocent of tho charge brought
ngainst him. Is Bishop Starkey, of
Newark, who for some time has known
