The business house of Messrs. John M. Niver & Co., the well-known wholesale and retail dealers in flour,
hay, grain, and feed, was first brought to the notice of the public in 1877, since which time,
by the exercise of energy, enterprise, and perseverance, an immense trade has been built up
throughout the city and surrounding country. For trade purposes the firm occupies a two-story
frame building 50x150 feet in dimensions, where they carry at all times a splendid assortment of the
finest brands of flour, grain, hay, and feed. In order to comply with the demands of their patrons, the
firm have made arrangements with manufacturers and producers whereby the largest orders are promptly filled
and at prices which preclude successful competition. All goods are received from the most reputable sources, and
are highly esteemed by the community for their uniform good quality. The proprietors, Messrs. J. M. and N. H.
Niver, are natives of New York, and conduct their business upon an upright and liberal basis."

I do not know why he was listed in Hoboken. The family seems to have been in
New York City. Edward Guderman was a chemist who moved to Chicago.
The 1880 Census "128" River Street listed Henry Morton age 43, pres S - of technology
born New York, and his wife, Clara age 42, son Henry S age 6,
Quincy L 6 months a sister in law and her three children, an aunt and five servants.
In 1900 they were at 529 River Street and Henry was listed as a chemist.
I believe that they were at Castle Point on the Steven's Campus.
The same was probably true for the 1880 census.

There is more on the internt of the "Bott Strad"
A 1894 incident
of of a stolen Stradivarius violin worth $4,500 owned by professor Bott,
Professor Bott died before the violin was recovered and his wife subsequently moved to
306 River Street, Hoboken.
Jean Joseph Bott
Jean Joseph Bott, NYPL Digital
The story of the Bott Strad:
The Bott Stradivarius is one of the most interesting violins in the United States, on account of its romantic history
and because of the vicissitudes through which its different owners have passed. The superstitiously inclined have been wont
to look upon it as "haunted" or "hoodooed" or a "jinx" according to their choice of phraseology. It is said that a spell of
bad luck is transferred to the new owner when the violin changes hands, much as was the curse of the bottle-imp in Stevenson's
story of that name. At the time the instrument first came into prominence it was a favorite in the collection of the late Duke
of Cambridge, who willed it to his friend, Moritz Hausman, of Hanover. The violin, made in Cremona about 1723 by Antonio
Stradivari, is of a bold, rugged type, which at this period was characteristic of Stradivari's work. Jean Joseph Bott
was born in Hesse-Cassel on March 9, 1826. His father was a prominent court musician and carefully laid the foundation of his son's
musical training. He was placed under Louis Spohr, one of the greatest violinists of that time. Under Hausman, the study of harmony
and musical theory was pursued. After concertizing several years throughout Europe, he accepted the directorship of the Royal Opera
at Hanover. When Hausman died, in 1876, and his collection of violins dispersed, Bott bought the Stradivarius.
In 1884 the late Theodore Thomas persuaded Bott to move to New York. In 1894, after a protracted illness, thinking he would
never again be able to use his Stradivarius, Bott decided to sell it. A deal was made with Signor Nicolini, husband of Adelina Patti,
who offered a certified check of his wife's for $4,500. Prof. Bott expected to be paid in gold.
The banks, being closed and no one able to cash the check, Signor Nicolini and Madame Patti sailed for Europe,
and the deal fell through. Prof. Bott sorrowfully took his beloved Stradivarius home and laid it away in a bureau drawer,
from which the violin was stolen a few days later. No trace of it could be found for months, and Bott died April 30, 1895.
A series of disputes, arrests and litigations followed, which proved of little avail, until seven years later a
violin was discovered in a tailor shop in Brooklyn, which Mrs. Bott and others identified May 24, 1902,
as the lost Stradivarius. It was returned to the widow and sold. The next owner of the instrument was killed
while attempting to board a moving trolley car. Although it was under the man's arm at the time of the accident,
the violin was found to be uninjured. Lyon & Healy bought the violin December, 1903, and soon sold it to Archibald Mitchell, a
connoisseur and art lover. Rumor says his business interests immediately suffered a decline, but on placing the "Strad"
in the hands of a dealer for sale fortune again smiled on his ventures. Returning straightway to the dealers to take
the violin from sale, he discovered that it had been sold. In 1914 the "Bott" Strad was again in the hands of a violinist,
a present to Roderick White, who used it in his concerts until he entered the service two years ago, and three months
ago Lyon & Healy sold it for Mr. White to a connoisseur and collector, Mr. Zamustin, of Philadelphia."

J. C. Farr, Wholesale and Retail Dealer in Lumber, Timber, Brick, Lath, Lime, Cement, Plaster, Sand, etc.,
Office and Yard at Fifth Street Dock. -
Hoboken is one of the most active business centres in the vicinity of New York. Along its river front
are the great docks and warehouses of the German steamship lines and also the depots of the
heavy coal operators and the docks and yards of those engaged in the lumber trade.
An immense business is carried on in lumber, ship timber, and builders' supplies,
one of the leading and largest wholesale and retail dealers being Mr. J. C. Farr,
who is one of the best posted men in the trade in this section, having been for eighteen
years at the head of one of the largest concerns in the lumber trade at Albany, New York.
In 1877 he succeeded to the business he now controls, which was established more than twenty
years ago by Mr. W. C. Harp, a thorough going, active, enterprising business man.
Mr. Farr infused new life into the business and greatly extended the facilities trade,
and by his energy and straightforward transactions placed himself at the head and front
of the lumber interests in this vicinity. The premises at the foot of Fifth Street have
a water frontage of nearly two hundred feet and extend to the rear a distance of three hundred feet.
The docks are large and every facility is provided for the discharging of cargoes from vessels and
boats and for storing it in the yards. The general business comprises lumber of all kinds, ship and
building timber, hardwoods, including black walnut, oak, ash, chestnut, cherry, also whitewood lumber,
yellow pine flooring, ceiling, weather boarding, ship plank, birch, hemlock, spruce, etc., dunnage wood,
and lumber of all kinds for vessels. Mr. Farr is also a heavy contractor and supplies
nearly all the steamship lines sailing out of New York, and builders of docks and warehouses,
shipwrights and builders generally, with everything required in lumber or timber. Another important
branch of his business is handling brick, lath, lime, cement, plaster, sand, etc.,
in which line he controls a large trade and always keeps in stock a full and general
supply. Mr. J. C. Farr, the proprietor of this extensive business, is a native of
the State of New York, and has been identified with the lumber interests all his life.
Since he has been located in Hoboken he has always been popular and highly regarded for
his enterprise and public spirit. He is the recognized representative of Hoboken's trade
and commerce, and has by his extensive operations materially added to the city's prosperity and
assisted in developing its commercial and industrial resources. Mr. Farr is extensively engaged
in shipping lumber by car-load and vessel-load to all parts of the country.
A rumor circulated that the business of
John C. Farr, a lumber dealer at the foot of
6th street, had failed and his liabilities were $100,000. There was no comment from Mr. Farr.
(Courier-Post Camden 27 November 1883)

dealer in lumber and masons materials has made an assignment. Liabilities $100,000.
Farr was interested in the firm of Sullivan & Co. sash and door mills Asbury Park. Sixty hands are throw out of employment."
(Detroit Free Press 23 November 1883)
"On July 17, 18S3, John C. Farr, having a lumber business at Hoboken and
a manufacturing business at Asbury Park, formed a partnership as to the latter business with
J. H. Hagerman and J. S. Fielder, under the firm name of J. C. Farr & Co. Hagerman and Fielder
gave Farr their note for the interests they acquired in the Asbury Park business. On October 29,1883,
the new firm was embarrassed financially and dissolved. Hagerman and Fielder assigned to Farr all
their interests in the business, and Farr returned their notes and agreed to pay the debts.
On November 30,1883, Farr assigned all his property, under the statute, to Arnold, for the
benefit of creditors. In the early part of 1884, the Second National Bank of Red Bank
obtained judgments against the members of the firm of J. C. Farr & Co., for debts due
from that firm, and caused executions to be levied on what had been the property of that firm.
The bank afterwards filed a bill to set aside the transfers from Hagerman and Fielder to Farr,
and the assignment of Farr to Arnold on the ground that they were fraudulent as against the creditors of J. C. Farr & Co.
The court below held the transfers by Hagerman and Fielder to Farr to be void."

October 20, Fanned by high winds, fire swept the J. C. Farr Lumber Yards in Hoboken and the
Chocolate Menier Company's plant. Damage $300,000. The Schmaltz Bakery Company was also damaged.
(West Schuylkill Herald)
The fire spread from the lumber yard at 7th and Clinton streets, in Hoboken, to the candy factory where over 100 girls were driven from the building.
The entire candy factory was destroyed. An explosion of a 500 gallon gasoline tank near the lumber yard hurled
fragments of lumber and other debris in all directions, fortunately no one was hurt.
The boiler in the candy factory also exploded. The candy factory was a new brick building that extended
halfway down 7th street and halfway down Grand. It was separated from the lumber company property by only a few feet. A row of tenements was "scorched".
The flames and sparks could be seen from Manhattan. The Hoboken Fire Department got assistance from the
Jersey City Fire Department.

1939 Description of River Street, Hoboken
New Jersey A guide to Its Present and Past, 1939
"To seamen, as well as visiting New Yorkers, River Street is the heart of Hoboken.
An almost unbroken row of saloons, with cheap hotels and flats above, stretches along
one side of this broad, paved street. On the other side are the entrances to the piers
on Hudson River, protected by high wire fences.
During the arrival and departure of great liners, River Street resounds
to the rattle of innumerable truck and taxis, the footsteps
of excited, hurrying travelers and their friends. Between times the street is a Rialto
of the seamen of all nations, interspersed with stevedores and longshoreman."
