I lT.etpd-iy afternoon, Mr. Hertog
nnd other members of the Centtal

;commtssloncrs, and by choice of the
boird,, superintendent of the park, n
r.2filtlori lUlJch 1)9 has filled, with sal
ary, for more than fifteen jears.
It ,wag M,r. Alexander who dliect
d the painting of the fountain, as has
bean the custom for jears, so It was to
blm that the petition was chiefly di
rected. Mr Alexander cordially je
;efrj the committee, and after lead
;ng the petition nnd noting the flgna
tures, he Informed his audience that
je did, pot Intend to jecede from, his
position, unless he was so specifically
ilrected by the park commissioners
Mr Alexander, who can alwajs ilalm
vedlt for his uniform finnkness, did
not make this occasion an exieptlnn,
and Helhlnntly Informed the commit
tee that In his opinion the action of
the Central Labor union was "baby

the unions pay for the work, ns it nas
siiRgested, unless, honeitr, the paik
board order the same In legulat form
Mr, Alexander, however, paie the vis
itors this satisfaction, that tho paik
i ommlMoners would llkelv meet to
consider tho petition and If they
would, the libor unions' representa
tive? would be so Informed
Respecting this, The Tribune Is In
formed enough to my, that It Is more
than likely that the pntk board, with
the exception of Major Kllpatrlck, who
Is nt Atlantic City, will hold an earlv
meeting. What action tho board will
take howeier, Is purely speculative.
No prediction can be based on the
ptesent Indications, for It Is on open
secret that there Is some dlilon of
opinion nmong the commissioner as
to the expertlenej of ordeilng n to
pilntlnp Mr. Alexander has stated
his position, which, conceding his
promises, no one will queMlon that he
will alter it Thtn It Is the belief,
bised on opinions that hale been ex
ptesed since the opening nf the con
troetv, that not all of the members
of the boird would favor a re-pilntlng
now that the work has been done
Whntfier opposition there may be
among the boaid to a re-palntlng, It
Is not founded on n dlshellef In organ
ized labor, but rather tint It would be
les prudent nnd dignified than If the
lexlng questions were disposed of by
meielv paselng a resolution that here
after no work be done about the pniks
unless cinled out by tecognlzed union
Whateier mav be the outcome. It Is
the earnest; wlfih of the promoters of
the semi-centennial celebration that
the regrettable Incident be brought tn
a speedy close One of the cone
quenecs of the contioersy Is the sus
pension of most of the Jubilee plans,
particularly the work of det orating
The decoiators ate In town lendy to
carry out their pi ui, bfit the fear
tint possibly the celebration might be
Interfered with by reason of the
threatened nrtlnn nf the l.ibnr tnilnne
matters wcie sort of slowed up until
tne pmspnt nf safe traveling would
become a bit brighter.
Theie scenic tn be a mlsappiphen
slon of the facts tint led up to the
pilntlng of the fountain by Flank fc
ns, at the direction of Mr Alexan
der The fitory that one hens every
qtnrter of the town Is that Mi Alex
ander acted dlrectlv agiinst the wl'hes
of the board and gave the oh to n
non-union firm when It was the sense
of the board that union p timers be
given the woik Among the facts
gathered bv The Tribune man es
teidiy was that the board did not
put Itself on record in the matter of
painting Refeience to the minutes of
the suretnrv of the boaid hnws that
there was tm aitlon taken about ptlnt
Theie vmi some dlcuson, however,
relative to painting Mi Alexandi r
announced tint theie would be no
painting this ve.u, nnd dining the
ill-., iit,in it was. pointed out to Mi
Alexander to be cautious and not give
"lit park work in a wav that would
Injun his business This sunrvtlnil
was rulldl forth bv Mi Alexnuder 1. 11
Ing of ciitaln action that the labor
unions took ngdliiM him, pnMimnhlv
beiaiiM- of his Inving cmplojtd Fiank
A. Miiis Theie was nothing done with
lefuence to thr jialntlng unUl some
w.eks ago nnd a louple of months
arter the meeting In Apt II when Maj
or Kllpitilik suKgeted to Mi Alt'x
nnder that It would be wtll to have
the p-uk fountain biightenrd with
paint ioIois for the semi-centennial
cdff)raton Mr Alexander njs-. he
aniulesftd, and, ns diMoiinrv with
him, he gavt the work tn Mr Frank,
ivlin has done all of the p.nk painting
for ovei a do7en .veats-. This covei
all of the circumstance.- of the woik,
so fir as the teconls show
Mr Alexinder afhrnis thnt he has
no opposition tn mganbed laboi, and
the only circumstances that led him to
give the work to Fiank , Min. wcro
that this tlrm has alwavs done the
park wotk long belore the laboi union
