TUESDAY, FEBRUARY f>. TROLLEY FARES AM) SEATS. Jersey City Is doomed to failure in her effort to enforce an ordinance de manding a seat for every flve-cent fare. There are enough complaints against the public service companies without being unreasonable in the demands upon them. Neither do wo believe the agitation for a three-eent faro is feasible except In the ease oi working men or school children who A in a sense, become regular corumut Aprs, In some parts of our country five cents is the smallest change In uso r alid we believe that the average per aon anywhere is willing to give . nickel for a ride to his destination If it cun be shown that a street rail ■way company is making more money than is Justified by charging fivi ' cents per ride, let them increase tho wages of their employes, give them better hours, buy their uniforms for them or something of that sort. The two cents difference between a (De cent and a throe-ccnt fare is not needod half as badly by the public in general us It is by the trolley em ployes. That South Amboy man who ac cuses the senator from Essex of try ing to got the Bishop's law repealed is allowing his personal dislike ol the young reformer to get beyond his desire for accuracy. If the Bishop’: law has any particular friend in 'lit state legislature that friend is Ever etl Colby. If all reports are true Senator Dry den. as well as the people, has wot a groat victory.

Perhaps now the removal of the piling will be delayed until the contractors ara ready to begin work. Tlie agitation to have the Staten Island Rapid Transit continue Its ferry across the hay to South Amboy can hardly amount, to anything when the company declares thut the ferry even to Perth Amboy is a losing prop osition. When Editor Martin writes some of his thoughts “merely to kill time" and has them published in the New ark Star, ho doubtless intends them to be read merely to kill time. Senator Foraker must be in his glory just now with the hearing in the Brownsville shooting affair on and surrounded by a group of dis charged negro soldiers. It is now quite certain that the ground hog saw his shadow Satur day and got hack into his hole. If he did hot he must be snowed under by tills time. If it keops on like this the ice trust will say that the snow prevented them from harvesting the Ice, thereby causing a scarcity.

Wise Ranchman Averted a War In the "Hole in the Wall.” Near (he Hole-in-the-Wall country in Wyoming there is a peppery old cattleman whose range is as dear to him as his life, and from whose point of view a sheepman is a pariah. His nearest neighbor is a strenu ous and belligerent widow who keeps sheep. In consequence the line be tween iheir two ranches is as clearly defined as was the dead line at Libby prison. Upon one occasion, however, the widow’s sheep strayed upon the cat tleman’s range, and the old ranch er's rage was great He denounced her as a "trollop." This epithet as applied to herself came to the ears of the widow, and, vowing vengeance, she hurried home to search for the word in her dic tionary. But her dictionary knew naught of “trollops,” so she sent away for a larger edition and had It freighted in. The new dictionary when it came was as silent upon the subject of "trollops'1 as the old one, so the wid ow saddled her horse and rode gome 20 miles to consult a ranchman whose educational advantages had been somewhat superior to those of her neighbors. He listened attentively while she explained the circumstances. "And now” she demanded, “what did he mean? What is a trollop?’ “Trollop, madam,” replied he grave ly, “is a very difficult word to define. Its meaning is subtle and elusive. It’s hard to put Into words, but it's a rare compliment Old Man B— has paid you. In olden days ‘trollop’ was a synonymous term for 'Queen of Sheba,’ but as near as we can come at Its meaning nowadays the defini tion would be ‘The Sheep Queen of Poison Creek.’ ’’ “Is that’so!" exclaimed the molli fied widow'. ‘T’ve wronged that man. I’ll stop and ask him over for supper on, my way back.”—-Llppincott's. Knew Who Used It. Charles H. Hoyt, New England's great playwright, once visited a small town in Pennsylvania, where there is a hotel they say George Washington, the father of his country, used to stop nf when he passed through. In it they have a room he is said to have occupied at times. Hoyt came through there once with one of his atractlons. He arrived af the hotel after all the members of the company had been assigned rooms. One of the company was given the Washington room, and Hoyt received a very poor room on the top floor, the proprietor not knowing who he was. When he came down stairs later, the gentleman who had got the good room said: "Mr. Hevt. they have glvdh me the room.that they yaed to give George Washington when he came here." “Well,” said Hoyt, “the one they have given me must be the one they gave Henedlet, Arnold when he came.” Part of Their Business.

Recreation ami Outdoor News Com bined. in the acquisition Of "Recreation" and the publication of that paper with "The Illustrated Outdoor News” un der the title of the former, several objects were sought by the publish ers. First of all, the broader title, "Recreation,” has been retained, net only because of the greatei age of tu publicallon, but because It has been felt that it more nearly represented the sphere and purposes of the new publication that "The Illustrated Outdoor News" or any other name possibly could. The new magazine will be broader that ‘‘Recreation’’ Have you ever seen a Sunset?

First, the men to re lieve us would come chattering down, and soon we were free to go back I again to daylight and fresh air.There | was generally a shout of gladness on such occasions, the firemen being quite as happy ns. the inexperienced trimmers.
