FRIDAY, MARCH 1,1880_ This paper is Democratic in principles and is independent in its views on all local questions. Assemblyman McDermitt re marked the other day that this was a “beef, beer, water and gas” Legis lature. Probably it was his well known modesty which prevented him from adding cable railroads to the list. _ Feeney’s gas bill has gone to the Senate. Now who will take up and push it through? This is a chance for some one—Sena tor Edwards for instance—to give Jer ^^gwCity gas at $1.50 a thousand feet. Who Blocks the Way? ^^^Bays Senator Edwards:—“f have ■ tried for several weeks to have this j^B bill (the Feeney Water bill) reported •favorably.” ;|M Well, then, who has been opposing Ji|Mach a report'.' Why does not Senator Hldwards tell us that? Is it you, Senator Adraln, or is it S|?B»u, Senator Gardner? $S®Fhe Jersey City News would much like to know, would the voters. ^IMakkr, Smith anil Wyekoff seem to that so long as they are re fefSr^Red, it does not matter how the of the State goes. . seems strange that the Police fi@S8Md should hesitate f..r a mouumt to Captain Edmondson, it is evi * i Hto anyone who sees him tliat he , » .. Bt lit, for active service. If he is v'e' .Bon the rolls solely because the Sfefpv&B>er8 fear the Kepul.licun erv of Kf^^Breat partisanship, the ei.minis deserve the name neither of jPEfetiBftitizens nor of good Democrat.-. , Mis fit for duty it should not be Hiat lie is not, but no one claims BgpflBe Is. raMcfept himself. [Republican Virtuousness. 4 Republicans are not so en ired of the Australian Election bill ey pretend to be, and their adop tion of it as a caucus measure the other evening was a grand “bluff.” They pretend that they are anxious to end the “Democratic frauds” in Hudson. They are a good deal more anxious to protect the rascally election methods i that have made Camden shameful in the eyes of the people for many years, and their adoption of the Australian Election bill as a party measure was probably designed to defeat it by driv ing the Democrats into making its de t a matter of Democratic party policy. They seem to have assumed that if the Republicans stand for it, ordinary caucus contrariness will in duce the Democrats to stand against it. In this instance they may have reckoned without their host. Gov ernor Green's advocacy of the bill will materially assist its passage, and it al ready has the quasi-indorsement of the Democratic caucus. How Robe son and the other Republican rascals in Camden would howl if the bill should be put through. It is Camden that we are after. One Johnny did get his gun. The rest of his name is P. Feeney. But he will wish he hadn’t when the National Guard gets after him. The coroner's verdict will be:—“Didn’t know it was loaded.” __ IS the multiplicity of counsels there is death to the patient. Jersey City’s representatives at Trenton should study this combination of two old bits of wisdom. They have introduced a dozen different bills to make this town an earthly paradise, and Senator Ed wards will pack into his black bag next Monday afternoon another meas ure covering all hitherto proposed, and more. This will also be shoved in. Would it not be well to pass some one of them for a change? Pass the Werts’ Bill. There seems to be no good reason why the Werts bill shonld not be promptly passed by both branches of the Legislature and sent to the Gov ! emor. The Democratic party is pledged to such action by the prom ises which were made last autumn to the people and which helped to place it in the majority in the! the Legislature. It is true that : in some respects the measure will not ! be all that is asked for by the more i lil)erally disposed sections of the State j after it has been amended to suit the views of Senator Baker: but then it 1 must be remembered that Senator j Baker wants to bo reelected. As a matter of fact, the proposed j law will be much fairer than the present one, both to the liquor dealers and to the communities which favor prohibition. Some of the most odious features of the present law are abol ished. Citizens are gt least given the right, provided for in the constitution, of trial by jury. The hurtful “jug taverns” will be abolished, something for which all citizens should be grate ful. By one of the Baker Amend ments, communities are permitted to decide for th&mselves whether they want prohibition or higher license rates than are fixed by the law. All the good features of the present law are retained. In these circumstances, it is hard to see why any member of the legislature, not influenced by party considerations, should refuse to vote for it. Least of all, is there any reason why Demo cratic members, elected on an excise reform platform, should oppose it. The Republican Assemblymen have decided to vote for the Australian Bal lot bill. This is a wise course; but New Jersey will remain Democratic just the same, and so wili Hudson County._ There is a saying describing what happens to the keg when you pull the spigot out. The London Time? is now learning that the result is the same when the Pigott pulls himself out. We Are on the People's Side. We print, in another column, a re port of the proceedings of the Single Tax League, last night, including the passage of a resolution of thanks to The Jersey City News for the stand it has taken upon the water question. While disagreeing with our friends, the followers of Henry George, upon many points—indeed, upon the car dinal principle of their faith—we are still glad to be in line with them upon this great issue, and we cordially ap preciate the support they tender us in the fight we have begun. We believe we are on the people’s side in this whole water controversy, and the reason we want the Feeney bill passed is that we wish fo confide to the voters themselves the power to stamp the swindlecates out of ex istence. That they will do so is be yond all question, and that is the reason the fresh water pirates are prepared to use any means, however vicious, to defeat the bill. Jtsut tne J? eeney Dili must pass, it it does not, the Jersey City News will remember all the facts and the people will be duly reminded of them when election day comes around. The Jersey City News has only one ambition—to be on the side of the people and their best interests upon all questions. “Errors of judgment may have been committed,” says the London Times. No doubt the stockholders who draw nine shillings two pence profit this year instead of £90,000 as heretofore, have come to this conclu sion. But this qualified statement, though its absurdity may be gratify ing to Mr. Parnell, is hardly an apol ogy for the most reckless and unprin cipled act that ever disgraced jour nalism. ___ A Cabinet to bo Depended Upon. We are glad to be able to present the Cabinet, printed below, to the readers of The Jersey City News with perfect confidence. Other news papers have felt hesitancy, but we are sure. We absolutely know whether Mr. Harrison will select these men or not. It will be one of the safest Cab inets that ever was, because it stands on its record, and the country will know enough to get out from under:— State—Mr. Blaine of Little Rock, Ark. Treasury — Mr. Platt (who will soon be out of quarantine). War — Coionel Elliot Shepard of Fifth avenue. Navy—Mr. Robeson of Salt River. Interior — Mr. Dorsey of Lone Star, Tex. Attorney - General — George Bliss, counsel for the defence. Postmaster General—Mr. Wana maker, of Philadelphia (who will close out a bankrupt stock of green postage stamps, positively below cost, and fur nish a saleslady to lick ’em without extra charge). Agriculture—Colonel Dudley, of Five Points, Floater County, Did. The vigorous action of the Gut tenbcrg Racing Association authori ties, after a thorough investigation of Tuesday’s Glendale race had been held, commends itself to the racing public. The lessons graphically illus trated are twofold. The class of patrons who are wont to delare under the slightest provocation that this or that owner “has his hooks too deep into the track to be punished, have opin ions to change. Those owners who believe they are shrewd enough to es cape detection in eagoked practices need to reflect and mend the error of their ways.__ Our Brave Citizen Soldiers. Assembi.xmax Feeney has done some good work at Trenton, but he made a serious mistake when he spoke as he did, yesterday, of the National Guard of New Jersey. The militia of no country can be the equal of the trained veterans of a dozen campaigns. Indeed, it is not intended that they should be. It is also true that na tional guardsmen are prone to gaudy trappings, which is probably wliat he meant when he called them “muslin paper soldiers.” Such decorations are among the things which help re cruit their ranks; and armies have at all times been inclined to them. The uniform of New Jersey’s Na tional Guard is, on the other hand, I particularly plain, soldierlike in the best sense, and serviceable. The mistake was particularly un fortunate as applied to the militia of this State. They have always done good service and proved themselves ; well drilled. The object of such or j ganizations is to prepare the State i for war in time of peace. No one j doubts what the New Jersey regiments ' would do if called on for service in the field. The Hibernian Rifles, them selves, may be trusted to stand up for New Jersey and New Jersey’s National Guard every time. Supply the Hibernia Rifles with arms, somehow; but don’t abuse our citizen soldiery. Citizens should take notice that next Tuesday afternoon, at Trenton, there will be a hearing before the Senate Committee on Riparian Rights on the Feeney Water bill, a measure which will effectually block the schemes of the swiudlecates. There should he a full representation so as to leave no excuse for a failure to pass the bill. Wipe Out the Board of Works. The offences of the Board of Works are legion. The latest was rebuked to I day when the Supreme Court rein S stated veteran George A. Lewis, whom | the commissioners discharged in de fiance of law. The only trouble is that the city has to pay for the reckless misconduct of its officials. But the people will be avenged when the Legislature, after passing the Fee ney bill, to avoid the appearance of jobbery, will enact a new charter with one headed departments. “PETE" STILE FILLS THE HOUSE. Ed. Harrfgan’g Friends Know a Good Thing Wien They See It. When Ed. Harrigan restored “Pete” to the stage of his theatre after the run of his melodrama, which was only moderately successful, he not only did a wise thing for his box office, but he also showed his willingness to return to that field in which he is best quali fied to work. There is realism in “Pete,” and that is what the public has applauded in Mr. Harrigan’s plavs, and in his acting, since he took his first steps on the road to popular favor. The study of unique phases of char acter is liis forte, and lie knows how to portray them with just so much ex aggeration as is used in the rougher lines of a statue that becomes perfect When viewed at a proper distance. “Pete” is full of such work. Negro traits have seldom been better put upon the stage. Harrigan has caught the humor of the Southern darkey to perfection. The dialect, the songs, the superstitions of the colored race, tlieir good nature and capabilities for noble conduct are all in "Pete.” Pop ular appreciation of such really good work is gratifying to those who regret to see the success that trash occasion ally achieves. There is plenty of good music and clever dancing in “Pete.” It’s scenic effects are well arranged. The com pany has been trained to the last de gree of excellence. It would seem as if everybody must have seen this play, but if so everybody is going a second time, for the audiences are large each night and matinee. PERSONAL. Ex-Freeholder and ex-Postmaster Charlie Munn says hotel keeping pays better than politics. Veteran Fred Boorman, of Bergen Point, Junior vice-Commander, Department of New Jereey, G. A. R., was one of the pioneer newsdealers of Hudson county. His place of business in this city was a favorite rendezvous for the “boys” of twenty years ago. He is still handling news" papers. Colonel Charles W. Fuller is not letting the wind ruflie his well-balanced side whiskers very much in the race for the postmastership of Bayonne. It is deemed safe to bet that he will succeed Postmaster Tom Brady when the latter’s term expires. Monsignor De Concilio, pastor of St. Michael's Church, is delivering a course of lectures on Sun day mornings upon marriage and divorce. The Rev. W. C. Snodgrass, pastor of Hedding M. E. Church, is confined to the house on account of a heavy cold. Mayor Cleveland called to see the press of The Jersey City News run yesterday afternoon. He was astonished when he saw the way the indi cator was working away up among the four figures. Rev. Father Eugene A. Farrell, deputy curate of St. Mary’s Star of the Sea R. C. Church, at Ber gen Point, has been transfei-red to St. Mary’s R. C. Church, in Jersey City. Christie Smith has been barred from bowling matches of the Boyd Club for six months. That score of 88 was too much. No! too little I Mr. E. F. Bannmann, of Congress street, on the Heights, will celebrate his nineteenth birthday at his residence next Friday evening. Mr. George Hilliard, of the Heights, goes to Florida in March in search of health. Mrs. Albert Stevens is creating quite a furore at Nice. She has made innumerable friends and has formed such an attachment for the place that she will make it her residence for some time. Mr. Louis Chapron, superintendent of Laubsch’s silk mill at West New York, slipped on the ice Tuesday and sustained serious injuries. Miss Cleveland, daughter of the Mayor, is in town entertaining her friend, Mrs. Daniel, of Swampscott, Mass. Ex-Mayor Gilbert Collins will deliver a lecture on the subject of “Books,” in the parlor of the Y. M. C. A.’s building, to-morrow evening. The wife of Assemblyman Farrell died at Har rison, at noon yesterday. She was the sister of Father Tighe, of East Orange. Mayor Cleveland's speech at the dinner of the New YTork Press Club at Delmonico’s Tuesday night was the hit of tlie evening. Mr. F. W. Pangborn paid a visit to The Jersey City News office yesterday. Progressive Euclire. A small ‘progressive euchre party was given last night by Miss Carrie E. Hall at her home on Palisade avenue. Euchre was the chief amusement dur •ing the ear[y part of the evening. At this the ladies’ prize, a handsome bisque vase, was taken by Miss Mary Hathaway, and the gentlemen’s, a smoking set, by Horace Evans, Sup per was served at 11 o’clock, after which dancing followed, until time for the guests to de part for their homes.

Simpson Methodist Church, on the Heights, was well filled last evening, aud the efforts of the Mission Board to entertain its audience were highly suc cessful. Mrs. L. C. Cook, the presi dent, made a brief address. The Pro clyan Glee Club, composed of Messrs. F.’ Hallenbeck, W. Ruggles, W. Richards and G. D. De Voe, rendered several excellent quartettes, unci reci tations were delivered by Misses Lulu Farrant, Annie Chapin and Florence Seguin. “Muzzer’s Baby,” by little Dollie Gilinore w:is highly relished by the audience, as were also a vocal duet by the little Conklin sisters and an organ solo by six-year-old Maudie Sells. “Amputation,” a pantomime, was cleverly performed by Fred Drake and Willie Beach. Willie was a patient with a sore toe (a potato), and Dr.Drake amputated it with a dry, rusty carpenter's saw. Calisthenics exercises with bells were cleverly ex ecuted by five young girls, Daisy Rhinehart, Stella Sequin, Susie Conk lin, Eva Rouse and Grace Taft, all under fourteen years of age: and tab leaux vivant, representing “AuldLang Syne” and ‘‘Old Maids’ Tea Party," were charmingly portrayed. A piano solo by Miss Lulu Farrant ancl song by Miss Annie Chapin were among the most enjoyable features of the occa sion. The whole affair was a success in every particular._ The Ivanhoe Coterie. Those who attended the Ivanhoe Coterie’s entertainment and reception last night at Kessler’s Hall, on Cen tral avenue, were treated to a variety programme of considerable merit and thoroughly enjoyed the dance follow ing.

Lynch and daughter Dora, Joseph Cotrell and wife, Miss Alice Bischop, Frederick Baecht and wife, Miss Ida Flohr, Henry Buehle and wife, R. Baecht, Miss Cora Buehle, Ben.

A piano solo, “Les Courriers Caprice” pleasingly rendered by Mr. Fred H.
