of the New-Jersey National Guard for twenty
years', and In laW, under authority of Governor

which he never fully recovered.
THE WEEK IN PETROLEUM.
The conviction Is rapidly growing that no new
fields of any magnitude now remain undiscovered.
In the lower Southwest, and the beat that can be
hoped for is the finding occasionally of small pools,
which must hi the nature of things soon run out.
Practically nothing of great importance has been
disooi'cred since the S=ind Pork pool was opened,
more than three years ago. in Lewis County,
W. Va. Yet in all that time the drill has been
constantly at work in all section.-- wherever there
was the shadow It a possibility of an oleaginous
deposit. Too frequently the only reward was dust
era and dry holes, which condemned entire sec
tions as barren. But in spite of the discourage
ments and drawl. there has.- been little ap
preciable letup in the efforts to find new produc
tion. These efforts were continued unabated
through the last week, but with only the usual
result The oM pool*, without an exception, are
steadily declining, and with no new discoveries
to make good the losses in stocks above ground
the future for the oil industry is gloomy.
I>ast week the'litavy rains continued to make
the roads impassable, and ■ great deal of new
work that would have been started baa been held
up on this account. VVetzsl and Harrison counties
still continue to furnish the largest amount of
new- production, and the indications are that this
deep sand territory will continue to produce for a
cons!dcrai)l<* time, It is believed also by some of
the more optimistic that this section has not yet
been fuMy developed, and that there la is chance
for a osis'df-rahle r-xt»-nFlor.. The Dunkard sand

and gi\-es promise of semft good wells. The two

UJKE THE PRIMARY BILL.
Camden Men Glad of Its Delegate
Canvlen. April 19 (Speclal).-There Is one feature of
the new Primary Election law which strikes Cam
den County Republicans with more than ordinary
favor. That is the section which provides the allot
ment of delegates to the State, District. Congress and
County conventions. Not much attention was given
that feature when the bill was up for consideration
In the legislature, and few understood just how it
would affect the situation here; but since the law's
enactment and the widespread publicity given it by
The Tribune it has become more clearly understood,
and there is consequent rejoicing here, especially
among those Republicans who believe In organiza
tion and the eternal fitness of things political.
Under the new apportionment of the Congress
districts, which became operative last year. Cape
May and Cumberland were cut off the eld Ist Dis
trict, leaving Camden, Gloucester and Salem to form
the new Ist. When the memorable battle for the
nomination for Congress began to assume shape a
year ago. Camden County discovered that, so far as
the District Convention was concerned, it was in the
position of the dog being wagged by its tail, for
while it had been In the habit of sending in Repub
lican majorities all the way from 4.000 to 10.000 it
had practically no larger delegation In the conven
tion thin Gloucester, with its Republican majori
ties of from COO to 1,200, and the°e not always cer
tain. Moreover, there was Salem, with its strong
predilection for the election of Democrats, and Re
publican majorities going seldom beyond 400 when
there, are Republican majorities, able to combine
with Gloucester to dictate not only the organization
of the convention, but to make its own terms on
the nomination. Thus, Caxnden. with all it.- .power
as a Republican county, was placed in the unwhole
some position of taking orders from the two smaller
counties, the combined vote of which dots not equal
that of Camden.
Xor was there any l.ope of change, for any effort
to change the party rules so as to equalize the ap
portionment of delegates, would be met with the
combined opposition of the two smaller counties,
which raised a. violent protest as the mere sugges
tion. They had no notion of relinquishing their
position cf power. It wag an unfortunate position
and one from which there appeared no escape.
With the new primary law, however, came the
new apportionment of delegates to conventions,
and, with that, the solution of the Congress district
problem. The deles-ates will be apportioned to the
vote cast and Camden v.-ill come somewhere nearer
getting Its proper representation. Besides, there
will be no separate primaries for the Congress Con
vention. It lias been the custom in this district,
as it lias in a number of the others, to hold the
Congress conventions months in advance of the
State or County Convention. Sometimes that plan
materially aided the candidate for Congress to lay
out his lines without regard to the situation on
county affairs. Sometimes that has proved advan
tageous, but more often it has been seriously detri
mental to the work of the leaders. A case In point
was that of last year, when the Congress canvass so
upset tilings for the Republicans In Camden County
and jeopardized the election of Sheriff and other
There are other feature.* of th« new law which
will grow in the estimation of the people but that
one which gives Camden something like its proper
representation in the State and Congress conven
tions is quite the most popular here.
It Is practically impossible to arouse any Interest
among the South Jersey people in the forthcoming
extra session of the legislature. "It makes me
weary," expresses, in a homely way. the sentiment
not only of the people, but apparently of the mem
bers of the legislature themselves. They feel
rather sorry that Essex County got Into such an
unenviable tangle and are willing to do what they
can to aid them, but the fear is expressed here that
the way out is not so easy. The proposition to
make the Sewer bill a caucus measure, it is held,
will not be so easily accomplished, now that the
other legislation is wiped off the slate and there Is
nothing to help it. "You see." paid one of Camden's
alert Republicans to-day, "some of the members
were crowded in the caucus by pledges of support
for some of the -measures they were steering, but
that will not be possible at the extra session. The
talk of repealing the Jersey City Excise law is all
bosh. That can't be accomplished. That bill was
Introduced by Cam"den's» Senator because last year
we obtained the passage of a bill to make an excise
board a constitutional body, and Jersey City
promptly took advantage of it. When It wa« di.«
covered that the Republicans then placed upon us
the responsibility for a condition they did not relish
«nd brought 'is to undo the harm we had unwitting
ly done th»re was nothing left for us to do. but
jump to their assistance. You may be rare that
we are not apt to recede from our position, and
there is no probability of any action on the Jersey
City Excise bill." , , . ,_

LIFE JERSEY TOPICS.
The report that Thomas X. McCarter will re
sign, the office of Attorney General Is probably
correct. It is understood that he is to be
president of the new trolley trust, and he
could not, of course, hold both places. Mr.
McCarter has a tremendous supply of nervous
energy, and if he takes up the trolley manage
ment in earnest it will be surprising if he
doesn't make radical reforms. The whole ser
vice Is in very poor shape— roadbed, cars, run
ning schedules, and the attitude of the com
pany's servants toward the public. if the peo
ple are treated half right the company will get
more of their money.
Who will succeed Mr. McCarter as Attorney
General? It is a soft berth and one much
prized among lawyers. Besides the honor ac
cruing to the holder, there i? a salary of $7,000,
and the new official will have four years to
serve of the five year term attached to the
office. Chief Justice Gummere and Prosecutor
Riker, both of Essex, are mentioned among
those from whom the selection may be made.
The Chief Justice has a salary of $10,006, and
his term doesn't expire until 190S, but he is said
to be willing to make the change because as
Attorney General he could practise lav,-, where
as he cannot do that now. That Mr. Riker
would cheerfully take the place goes without
saying: in fact, few lawyers in New-Jersey
•would decline it.
Prosecutor Riker's promotion might clear the
nay for Major Lentz's appointment as Prosecu
tor. That office has been the major's objective
point for many years. When Foster M. Voor
hees was running for Governor five years ngo
he promised to appoint Major Lentz. but after
election he found what he considered to be good
reasons for not keeping this promise, and Riker
was chosen instead. The powers that be in
Kssex held the major up as? an ideal candidate
for Sheriff last fall. If he was the right kind
of a man for that office, in their estimation,
they may not see any reason now against his
appointment as Prosecutor. They had the cour
age of their convictions then, and if the major
should insist on succeeding Mr. Riker in case
of a vancancy, he might succeed in landing the
If the way to the prosecutorship is not Is be
opened up to him. Major L,entz may fodorse the
appointment of hia friend Chief Justice Gummere
as Attorney General, provided that Justice Fort
be not assigned to the Es=ex circuit. The
justice and the major don't bf long to the same
mutual admiration society, and the possibility of
the former coming to Essex would not arouse
joyful anticipations in the hf-art of the latter.
Chief Justice Gummere's retirement would leave
room for the promotion of one of the present
associate justices to the head of the coart, with
$1,060 increase in salary, and for the appoint-
OWttt of a new justice. If -t were left to the iaw
vts of the State to determine, they would prob
ably vote the chief justiceship to Jonathan Dfat
oii, who has been on the Supreme Court bench
for twenty-eight years and is recognized all
over the country af a jurist of rare ability. But
he isn't anything of a politician.
The Gov^rjior may, however, if he sets fit. go
outside the court for a chief justice. In that
case he might appoint or» of the vice-chancel
lors, one of the present "lay" judges, or even
a .awyer holding no judicial office.
Roller, the swindler and forger, is ;tt large
again. The Court of Pardons has revoked his
parole and it is one of the numerous suspicious
circumstances in this case that the revocation
didn't take place until Roller was beyond the
reach of the New-Jersey authorities. If the de
sire had been to uphold the dignity of Jersey
Justice and enforce the law, the parole should
have been revoked immediately after Rollers
anest in Xew-York But nothing of the kind
was done. The New- Jersey officials sat still and
did nothing while Roller was being committed
to an institution from which his relatives found
no trouble in releasing him. The moment that
he was at large the Court <>r Pardons hurried to
revoke the parole, so that Roller is now practi
cally a fugitive from Justice, with the greater
part of a seven years' sentence for forgery yet
Has somebody an interest in making him a
fugitive ar.d keeping him one so that he won't
venture around this part "f the country?
Tgly questions, nasty insinuations and grave
allegations are whispered around the State
House, and the echoes are travelling all over the
commonweilth. The legislature, which meets
to-morrow, might well take hf.M of this Bet i ..tl
and go to the bottom of it.

when they first came. At the prices that are marked today they should b*
taken in a jiffy by thrifty women who will secure valuable service from them.

tions, or to quote the full list of prices. The following quotations will illus
