This irticularly bad season for re alculated to set people making isons. e are apt to recall just now the m in which Mr. Chandler, of ampshire, left the navy four ears ago. The contrast with sent state of things is not favor Mr. Boutelle’s side of the case, people are apt to speculate on bable situation four years from hen Mr. Harrison’s Cabinet ace to the new Democratic ad dition. But perhaps there is less regarding the condition of the hen than might at first be b. With Mr. Blaine as Secre State there is an even chance e navy will speedily be placed war footing. cordially invite our influential iporary, the Evening Journal, :e with us in demanding the pas the Feeney Water bill. ourse it was a pure freak of the i that made it appear in the re lof Mr. Frank Stevens’ sales in ferday’s Jersey City News that Frank Emmons had purchased I worth of the Title Guarantee [ipany’s bonds for $2,000. The face tvalue of the bonds which Mr. Em mons bought for $2,000 was just $2,000. General Sigel’s son has been ar rested in New York on a charge of “shaving” checks for pensions. He was a clerk in the Pension Office, of which his father is in charge. Dis honest clerks and hungry pension agents make the neighborhood of the pension offices as dangerous for old soldiers as a wood infested with sharp shooters. ,'J-' If the citizens of Hudson and Essex county do not make themselves heard at Trenton on Tuesday in favor of the Feeney water bill, hostile legislators may make their apathy an excuse for ... allowing the bill to die. The HarrlsOn Boom. A commercial despatch from New York, this morning, says: “The bulls are inclined to think that the Harrison boom has started, and the talk last night was correspondingly hopeful.” Pray, what is the “Harrison boom”? Is the com going to grow richer, is the wheat going to ripen faster, will the mines put out more iron or more coal, or will the wild, untrammelled steer upon the plains of Texas put on thicker layers of fat wherever John Bull may feast,—because a Republi can President is going to the White UU AUUUUQJ | Does not the “Harrison boom” rather mean that the monopolist arul the stock-jobber, elated at the return to power of the party whose regime brought them into being, are prepar ing for a new campaign against the people’s pockets by initiating a new era of inflated speculation. The four years of Democratic rule have been, on the whole, four years of general prosperity growing out of business conservatism. It augurs ill indeed for the Blaine-Elkins-AVana maker period that Wall street should initiate it with a boom. Now let the Senate equal the House’s record and rush through As semblyman Feeney’s gas bill. Read Bill Nye's funny letter in the next SUNDA Y MORNING NEWS. Onk of Manhattan's Four Hundred, Edward F. Delaneey by name, has dived into history with surprising re sults. He has discovered that AVash lngton wasn't much of a General, that the Revolution was a huge piece of jobbery on the part of the officers of the Crown, and that the British were defeated by bad maps and a desire on all hands to get rich. Perhaps, after this is known, it would be only the square thing for the Americans to l evacuate New York and leava it to the descendents of the Tories and the present Anglomaniacs. The Feeney bill enacts that no mater contract between a city and a private corporation shall be valid until it is ratified by a vote of the people. There is to be a hearing on this bill before the Senate Committee on Ri parian Rights on Tuesday. Let the Senators hear from you so that the bill may not fail to pass. Senatorial Representation. The Legislature should not adjourn without taking some steps to change the present Senatorial Representation. The inequality of the existing distribu tion is too glaring to admit of argument as to the justice of the Democratic claim. In the present Senate ten Re publicans represent a total population of 565,984, or each one an average of 58,598, while to a population of 711,049, there are only eleven Democrats, or one to every 64,641 of population. These are the figures: Hep. Counties. Pop.lDem. Counties. Pop. Atlantic. 22,860.! Bergen. 80,880 Burlington. 57,558, Camden.. Cape May. 10,744' Cumberland. 41,088 Essex.818,784 Hudson.201,842 Gloucester. 27,803 Hunterdon. 37.420 Mercer. 80,786!Middlesex.. 56,180 i Monmouth. 02,324; Morris. 50.075 Ocean. 15,560 Passaic. 83,3.4 Somerset. 27,425 Salem. ' Union. 01,680 Essex. SMOl —-Warren. 87,78. 1 Total.5G6,984j - Total.711.040 Leaving out Essex, there is only one j county, Mercer, -which has a popula- j tion equal to the Democratic average. Deducting Essex from the Republican column and Hudson from the Demo cratic, the averages are 85,222 and 42,800. At one end is Cape May and at the other Hudson. Atlantic, Cape May, Gloucester, Ocean, Somerset, Hunterdon, Salem, Sussex and War ren, nine counties, have nine Senators, with a population of 227,000, while Hudson, with a population 18,000 greater, and Essex, with a population only 14,000 less, have only one each. Ten counties, with a population of 267,000, have ten Senators, while the eleven others, with a population of more than 1,000,000, have only eleven. The basis of representation is in one case about 27,000 and in the other about 100,000. Members of the Legislature should study these figures. Th e weather is mild and spring like. It is a splendid time to have your fur nace repaired, weather strips put on the windows and a stock of provisions and coal laid in. lou might also bor row your neighbor’s heaviest coats, wraps, furs and snowshoes, Under the influence of the warm sun and the balmy air he will let you have them without thinking. Then you will be ready for the blizzard due here in a couple of weeks. Read Bill Nye's funny letter in the next SUNDA Y MORNING NEWS. “Oh, hr was a faker!” exclaims a mature contemporary of ours, with a giddy disregard of orthography quite out of keeping with its elderly and sober usages. The reader is puzzled to know who the “faker” was. We conjecture that he must have been the author of the following piece of rhetoric!— One afternoon recently, just after the world was being tucked in by the curtains of night, the gentleman whom adverse fate has obliged to earn his living by the sweat of his fact as city editor of the Journal, his killing labors finished for the day, was brushing -with exceeding care his fash ionably trimmed blonde mustache and whiskers, when a visitor appeared in the sanctum. The italics are ours, but we had no idea Brother Benson had such a hard time of it. If he had made the revela tion a little sooner, we might have provided him with a much “softer snap" as a reporter on The Jersey City News.__ The Feeney water bill will enable the people to kill the water swindlecates by voting down all dishonest contracts. Make the Senate understand, next Tuesday, that the bill must become law. General Harrison's Cabinet. The Washington despatches give the following as the probable members of General Harrison’s cabinet, and they are probably correct: Secretary of State—James G. Blaine, of Maine. Secretary of the Treasury—William Windom, of Minnesota. Secretary of War—Redfleld Proctor, of Vermont. Postmaster General—John Wana maker, of Pennsylvania. Secretary of the Navy—General Ben jamin F. Tracy, of New York. Secretary of the Interior—General John W. Noble, of Missouri. Attorney General—W. H. H. Miller, oi inuiaua. Secretary of Agriculture—General j Jere. Rusk, of Wiscon sin. How will a man like Mr. Windorn feel in the company of such men os Blaine and Wanamaker? Indeed, the spectacle which will take place when all these gentlemen meet for the first tune will be amusing. General Harri son will have to bustle around intro ducing them one to another, and then they will shake hands and say politely that they have known each other by reputation for years. As a matter of fact, with the excep tion of Blaine, Windorn and Wana maker, the names given above are almost unknown to the country. How many persons in the West have heard of General Tracy? How many in the East have heard of General Noble? Proctor and Miller convey few associa tions with them. It seems to be a Cabinet made up of men not of na tional importance. The Rev. Dr. Halleron is a pro nounced opponent of Sunday news papers. He differs wholly in this point from the Rev. Dr. Seudder. Of course we differ from Dr. Hal leron too. He is probably unaware of the fact that all the work of the Sun day paper is done upon Saturday, and the only relation of the issue to the Sabbath is that it aids the pulpit in instructing and enlightening the peo ple upon that day. AVe respect Dr. Halleron’s opinion, even in dissenting from it; but we commend this view of the case to his attention. The water swindlenates will use any means, straight or crooked, to kill the Feeney bill, because, if they fail, the bill will kill them. It is the duty of every citizen to see that the bill passes. Go to Trenton on Tuesday. Feeney’s Little Joke. Mr. Feeney’s utterance regarding “muslin-paper” soldiers belongs to the same class of expression as the “Ruin, Romanism and Rebellion” remark of the Rev. Dr. Burchard. Both were the offspring of a moment of inspired eloquence, and both were launched upon the treacherous air by the mere impetus of the creatvie effort. It is hardly fair to hold that in either case the speaker was responsible for the speech. The words and the thought-product they clothe must rather be regarded as the expression of the fine elocutionary frenzy that possessed the man who uttered them. Dr. Burchard's famous dictum made and unmade a President. It is quite probable that no one above the grade of an Assemblyman will be affected by Mr. Feeney’s metonomical effort hut the lesson to gentlemen who allow themselves to be carried away on the wings of their oratorical genius is none tUC 1CI5U VJVJgtSIAl/. Mr, Feeney, in all probability, is, by this time, bitterly repentant for his unfortunate slip. The calmer reflec tion which he has since brought to bear upon his remarks has doubtless convinced him that men seldom begin life as veterans. It has probably occurred to him that the veterans of today were very callow soldiers when the note of alarm was sounded from the cannon's mouth at Sumter. Can he doubt that the young men who now only make a gallant show on dress parade would face the turmoil of the battle field as readily as their fathers did, were the call of duty to resound again through the land? As for the citizen soldiers of the State, they can well afford to forgive Mr. Feeney for his little faux pas. It is all but certain that he will never do it again. In fact, we would venture to predict that in order to cure the evil wrought by his all too restive Pegasus, he would go further in the interest .of the National Guard than any Assemblyman of them all. TlIK back districts are being heard from.

Captain and Miss Denning’s Party to their Daughter Florence—A Pro gressive Euchre Party In Bergen— Jersey City Festivities. There were chatting, laughing and dancing last night at the Palma Club', and everything seemed so pleasant and gay that one involuntarily won dered why every day was not “ladies’ day." Probably in a few years the ladies will have a club of their own, and then they will be sure to have a “gentlemen's day” occasionally by way of returning courtesies. The hours last night were set from 8:30 until 13, but it was fully 9 before the ladies began to arrive, which was a pity, as it was the intention to have a very informal affair, and the ten dency of late hours is to engender for mality. Messrs. Frank R. Baldwin, N. B. Jenkins, (Jeorge T. Smith. Nelson J. H. Edge, Victor Baier, (J. H. Rice and P. S. Carter were the committee of en tertainment as usual. About twenty minutes past nine five pieces of Stubbs’ orchestra struck up the grand march. The platform in the middle of the gymnasium was turned up and draped with red, giv ing color to the scene. All of the young married set that belong to the “Assembly” were there having a good time. As the affair was so informal, many of the ladies kept on their bonnets while dancing. Miss Condict wore a brown silk, with white vest and pink bonnet. jriiss j.\eme rust was uecuiumgiy attired in an old gold silk, set off by a large black velvet hat with a brim. Miss Jennie Cable was in a black lace gown, made over silk, with a green and rose bonnet. Miss Barnes wore a handsome green brocaded skirt with corsage of red velvet, with a vest of the same ma terial as the skirt, and a pink and green bonnet. Miss Alice Dunn wore a shrimp silk gown trimmed with vel vet, Mrs. W. E. Gratton was in a black silk gown with over draperies of lace, with a large round hat of pearl gray velvet with feathers of the same shade. Miss Cable wore draperies of black lace arranged somewhat in the Di rectoire style, with a jet girdle, puffed sleeves, with a part of them of old gold silk, which was also introduced In the corsage; the hat was very high and trimmed with pink roses. Miss Sybil Eager wore a cashmere gown of a canary shade, made with a S’rated corsage, and a red lace bonnet. iss Stilwell wore a black lace gown; Miss Diyon, a brown cashmere, with trimming of shrimp salmon silk; Miss Harris, a very dark cashmere trimmed with velvet; Miss Underwood, a coffee-colored silk; Miss Packer, a gray cashmere, trimmed with satin of the same shade ;-Miss Jessie Lyon, a black lace with draperies, puffed sleeves, a jet girdle and black lace bat. Among others present were the Misses Pomp, the Messrs. Durie, Beekman, Ogden, Robinson, Heaney, E. L. Young, G. T. Smith and W. B. Jenkin. The Lenox Dramatic Club. Miss Nellie Buchanan, of No. 212 Fifth street, is a prominent member of the Lenox Amateur Dramatic Club, which she entertained in a delightful manner last night. Nearly all the members were present and the drama, “A Quiet Family,” was rehearsed. This was followed by a collation and dancing. The club is doing excellent work and promises to rank among the best when the members have had a little more experience. A large reception was given last night by Mrs. J. L. Bloomer and Miss Maggie Hagerty, at their residence, No. 217 Warren street. The spacious parlors were beautifully festooned with smilax and fragrant flowers, and choice plants and rare flowers were effectively arranged throughout the house. Mrs. Bloomer wore a hand some gown of ecru silk, with a corsage bouquet of Mareehal Niel roses. Her ornaments were dia monds. Miss Hagerty looked charm ing in a rich gown of White silk. She held a bunch of white roses. The fair hostesses received their guests in a cordial and delightful manner, and for them. During the evening a quartette, composed of Al bert Marsh, J. Bloomer, John Hagerty and James Hagerty sang several’selections which were greatly enjoyed by the guests. A piano solo by Miss Hagerty, and an excellent reci tation by Miss Hursbergher, added much to the pleasure of the evening. Pine music was provided for dancing, arul at midnight an elegant supper was served by Morrow and Day, after which the festivities were con tinued until a late hour.
