Samuel M. Subers

SAMUEL SUBERS was appointed to the Camden Fire Department at some point not long after November 12, 1874 as a replacement for Alfred S. Ivins as an extra man with Engine Company 1. He served until April of 1876, when incoming Chief of the department Claudius Bradshaw made wholesale personnel changes within the department. He was reappointed in April 8, 1878 and served until April 5, 1882, again as an extra man with Engine Company 1.

Yesterday morning Mrs. Michael Delaney, residing at No 315 Mechanic street, Camden, was found dead in an out-house. There were bruises on her face, which indicate that she might have been beaten. In consequence, her husband, Michael, was taken into custody and committed to the city jail on suspicion of causing her death, to await decision of the coroner's investigation, which will take place this morning. Both are said to have been heavy drinkers of strong liquor and some are under the impression that she died from its effects. A post-mortem examination will be held. In consequence of the numerous depredations committed in the Camden and Evergreen Cemeteries recently, in pulling flowers, desecrating graves and rowdy conduct, the officials of these cemeteries yesterday placed a number of policemen at each, and had the gates kept closed. No one was allowed to enter except for legitimate purposes in attending funerals and to take care of the graves. At three o'clock yesterday afternoon an open-air meeting of temperance workers was held in the grove, at Diamond Cottage, Camden, which was well attended, and several speakers addressed the audience. The usual Sunday morning breakfast was given at the Reformed Men's Home, Second and Kaighn's avenue, and an address was delivered by T.C. Newman in the afternoon.

On Saturday a further hearing in the case of Samuel Subers, charged by his wife with desertion, was commenced before Justice Ford W. Davis, of Camden. Several witnesses were examined, but without reaching a decision the case was adjourned until the morning.
