One day the report s say that there is any amount of gold right in sight in Lower California, and the next day we have it that there isn't enough to buy a half pound of salt horse to keep soul and body together, even if that nutritious food, or any other, were on sale in the district. Keep calm, young man; gold has been discovered in Jer sey City, and the spade of industry wiil bring it to the surface almost any day. Jersey City, March 14,1889. To the Editor of the Jersey City News. I congratulate you on the success of The News. The "best people" of Jersey City have been com pelled to take the Journal heretofore, because it had no competitor. You have a good field to work, and a rich reward awaits the journalist who has the ability to work it. But don't toady to the liquor element or you will, sooner or later, go under. 1 am not a prohibitionist, but a. temperate drinker. Am disgusted, however, with the rum rule which dominates the eity. Friend. We are greatly obliged to Friend for his assurances. We wholly agree with him as to the character of the field of work that Jersey City affords. Jlis admonition regfirding the liquor deal ers is taken in good part because it is doubtless well meant ; but it is wholly unnecessary, Thk Jkrsky City News is subservient to no class or element in the community. It favors equal rights and even-handed justice for all. Noth « ingmore. ft ικ; «ι unis me vuuiikj x'« » ». Judging from the meeting at Odd Fellows' Hall, last night, we would conclude that the citizens of Hoboken are by no means so anxious for the division of Hudson county as some people -would like us to imagine. Of course somebody is very anxious indeed for a division. There are plums in store for various interested parties should the scheme go through. If Hamilton county becomes a real en tity, there will be numerous good ''offices to Hill, numerous fat con tracts to gobble The infant county ■will need lots of new things, which somebody is ready to sell to it. Alto gether there will be a very pleasant oppportunity for those who sit behind the scenes and pull the wires. But who is it that has such lively hopes of benefit? Who is urging on the division scheme? That is a question that the public ■would like to have answered. Perhaps the citizen of average shrewdness may be able to form a close conjecture after reading our very interesting report of the proceedings at Odd Fello^vs1 Hall last night. ι ALJS is to nave a protection proies sorship designed to offset the free trade teachings of Prof. Sumner. It will be ' endowed for all time, of course, in order that many men who will be born long after all of us are dead may sit there in succession, bound to teach that doctrine. How strange it will seem after the years have brought better industrial knowledge, and a commercial system less like the present than the canoe of a savage is like a Cunarder, to see a man in the light of that better day directed in his teach ing by skeleton hands that reach out of the darkness of 1889. But perhaps by that time colleges will know enough to disregard the "codicil this anil codicil that" which Dr. Holmes lias so appropriately ridi culed. Obttinacy and Absenteeism. Obstinacy and absenteeism are the bane of legislation in this State. It is to be feared that the two causes will operate to leave the present Demo cratic majority with but a sorry record by the time the Legislature adjourns. One member takes a notion to dis like some measure which is urgently demanded by the public interests. He eimplv puts both feet on it, and stays there. You ask him why. He will not tell you. Probably he cannot. Probably there is no reason but just his obstinacy. Then another member takes a notion that he is tired of legislating. This will generally happen on Wednesday afternoon saiter he has voted aye or no some three or four times. Legislators have delicate constitutions and are easily exhausted. Well, feeling tired, he just crawls out of a window, packs tip his grip sack and goes home. You remonstrate with him. You represent the exigen cies of public business, his duties as an elected servant of the people, the needs of his own good name. It is all ao use. He simply wants to go, and lie goes, and his party and the public business may get along as best they îan. The Democratic party was bome into power in this State last fall upon a swelling wave of popular favor. Just now it is a question whether the party ship is not slipping down the declining slope. The course of some of the mem bers at Trenton has been such as to fill thoughtful friends of Democracy with sorrow and alann. Vacillation and temporizing please nobody, and on many questions the representatives of the party have suc ceeded in giving dissatisfaction to persons of every shade of opinion. With Benjamin Harrison at the head and James O. Blaine as hw lieutenant, and with strong men at their hack, the country and the Republican I tarty will lie prosperous and safe.—TJie Judge. Thk Judge is a funny paper, and j therefore its statement of the respect i ive position of Mr. Harrison and Mr. Blaine may be meant for a joke. There is no doubt, however, that the country would be safer in that way than it is likely to be in fact during the nest four years. Moreover, we have heard some of the Republican doctrines and know some of its leaders, and we do not see how they and the country can be prosperous at the same It Is a Good Time for St. Patrick. There will be two St. Patrick's Days in this city, this year. Well, what of it? He was a good saint, and two days will not be too much for him. Besides, it is an appropriate time for a little extra celebration among Irish men. Doubtless, good St. Patrick, himself, from his particularly comfort able place in Paradise, is pleased to observe the progress of Irish affairs just now. His business of driving out the snakes was directly in line with the foreshadowed expulsion of several English goverment officials whose misdirected authority is doubtless near its end. The snaky trade of in formers and retailers of lies is also in a bad way just now. Let the w-ork of St. Patrick and his successors be cele brated then with especial gusto. But since it is a season of so much rejoicing, let good feeling abound. Don't lose your tempers, merry Hibernians at any little matters of disagreement between you and the Police Board, or anybody else. Char itably give them credit for doing the best they can. The best celebration you can have, that which must be in your own hearts, and in the con gratulations from friends to friends, no one will interfere with, and the out ward display, whatever it may be, will be viewed with satisfaction by those who love justice, and wish a good cause well. An editorial paragraph concerning real estate sales in yesterday's Jersey City News stated that Auctioneer Frank Stevens had a sale on hand in the Weldon building yesterday afternoon. The sale-alluded to takes place next Thursday, the 21st inst., and the scene of the sale will be the Jersey City Real Estate Exchange, at No. 47 Montgomery street. The activity in real estate investments, to which an editorial of yesterday called attention, will probably draw hosts of pur chasers to the salesroom next Thurs day. Close Early. It is unfortunate that the early closing question has once again been brought into controversy. The right side is so easy to discriminate that it is a pity any of our large merchants should fall into error. It is not only the hard-worked clerk or saleswoman, the tired porter or the wornout messenger that needs the rest which the hours of darkness afford. The bus iness man himself will find more ease and happiness—we dare say even more profit—by indulging inj£ work with moderation. The community needs just so much food, so much clothing, so much hard ware, so much furniture to get along. That quantity it must have. If it can not bay it at night, it must in the day time. Again, the people have just so much money to spend. They are bound to spend it, and, if the stores are closed at night, they will spend it by day. It seems to an impartial observer that by closing at a reasonably early hour, the storekeepers will take in as much money, will save gas, and will reap the advantage the superior alert ness and amiability which people who are not overworked always bring to the conduct of affairs. We do not believe that tlie high offi cials of the Jersey City anil Bergen Railway Company have aiiy knowl edge of file coercion which is used to make the employes join the mutual aid society. It is a matter of petty tyranny, exercised by petty bosses. The company, however, has a duty to perform in the premises. It should protect its people from molestation of this kind. Probably the discharge of one or two small autocrats would have the effect of making life much easier and more comfortable for several hun dred honest men who are not in a position to protect themselves against petty aggression. Spring Racing. The failure of bookmakers in this vicinity to open any winter books on coming great events, has been freely commented upon. Time was when the Kentucky Derby, the Withers and the Belmont stakes were fnade the occa sion for the investment of thousands of dollars months before the races took place. Then, with the inception of the Suburban and, afterwards, the Brooklyn Handicap, those two races were used as the mediums for winter betting. This year, however, not a single book has been opened in New York on a^iy future event, although reports frojm far-off cities indicate speculation i:here has been indulged in. Many reasons have been given for j > this change of base on the part o.f bookmakers, but the real one is not hard to find. The fact is, winter racing is a posi&fle mccm., JfttoMLfrEtt well managed, aiid" l^îv&i'»W'Û(i<ltaAKftMt public endorsement. Americans, also, are imbued with a true sporting spirit. They would rather visit the scene of the contest and there stake their money. The dollars that hitherto found their way into future books are being turned over daily at Clifton and Guttenberg. Wk gave some space yesterday to Dr. Delissier's system for beating the races. To counteract the effect of this on young men with small salaries we offer to give any one of them who will call at this office a system by following which we guarantee that he will be absolute!;' protected against loss., On second t houghts, perhaps we may as well give it here. It is very simple; don't bet. That is all there is to it; but, young man, you would do well to paste it in your hat.

Deputy Sheriff McPhillips on Wednesday afternoon served an at attachraent at Academy of Music un der a writ issued in a suit brought' by Miss Marie Muller, a young actress. A representative of the Sheriff was in the box office on Wednesday and last evenings. The attachment was issued against Mr. C. R. Gardner, proprieto;· of the troupe now performing at the Acad emy, so I looked up Mr. Gardner last evening and asked him what the trouble was. "Oh, it doesn't amount to anything," said he. "Some time ago I became interested in a theatrical venture—a play which I had never seen. After a a little while 1 went where it was play ing and took in a performance. The minute I saw it 1 immed iately washed my hands of the whole affair. ' 'The lady bringing the suit was one of the members of that company and she is evidently under the impression that she lias some claim on me. I have en gaged Willard C. Piske to look after my interests, and contest- the claim." Ï accompanied Mr. Gardner to the Academy, where 1 encountered Mr. Harry Hyams, "business" manager of the house. As soon· as he learned the purpose of my visit, he got very red and excited. "You tell The Jersey City News," said he, "that no writs are go ing to stox> any show in this house. See ? The Academy of Music has got money enough to keep every show agoing that's advertised to play here. l)o you hear me?" 1 informed Mr. Hyams that ί was listening.

[From the Burlington Gazette.] It is all very well to talk about1 knowing how to kiss, of getting the entire worth out of a kiss, but our feminine friends can rest assured that the winner in this luscious game is the girl who doesn't know how to kiss any more than a pansy does, who awakens to the full value of a kiss with a start of flushed surprise, and who is a little bit afraid to try it again right away. Such timidity penetrates to the centre of a man's soul and sends him off to the florist's with a beating heart. J. G. B. to the G. O. P.

A Tempest in a Teapot Over Squth Jer sey Oame—Κ very one is Down on Potts for His Faction's Revolt Against the Werts Bill and tlie Caucus. f [Special to the Jeney Citjj Neu;s.*\ TKRSTOjr, March 14, 1SSP.—Keeping the Assemblymen at work today was as hard as making boys study on a * holiday. Speaker Hudspeth and his new gavel are tired tonight, but it was fun for the As semblymen, who are talking of presenting a pair of trousers to O'Neill, of Jersey City. O'Neill attempted to escape out of a window, but caught on a nail. There after, the presence of ladies in the gallery, and, subsequently, in t"he street, made it necessary for him to keep his overcoat buttoned up tight. Assemblyman Brown is said to have lent him a pair of trousers to go back to Jersey City iu. • No one could have done more than Speaker Hudspeth did to foster the infant industry of law-making. He surrounded it with the highest kind of protection, a prohibitory tariff, in fact, as he had the doors locked. Then O'Neill tore his Tf ΛΙ U „lnn «Ϊί/Ι All4" His trousers are intact, and he caught a train for Newark. The queerest disap pearance was that of Duron, of Burling ton. He is sixty years old, has a white beard, and could not jump out of a win dow without the help of· a safe mover. He had been grumbling all the afternoon because he could not go home. He told Speaker Hudspeth that the calendar would not be so much behind if the ses sion was opened punctually, and if less time was wasted in caucuses. Speaker Hudsneth replied that the House was always called to order as soon as a quorum arrived, and that, as for the caucuses, tliey would continue to be held. Well, he disappeared. As no earthquake was felt, many members do not believe that he jumped out of the window. The void left by the disappearance of his 290 pounds was too great to escape t he Speak er's eye. He called the House, discovered that three of his pupils were missing, and ordered the Sergeant-at-Arms to produce them. The Sergeant-at-Arms is as used to orders of this Kind as the members are to the bitter sneers of their colleagues, and he merely smiled and did nothing. But the Speaker meant what he said this time and told the Sergeant-Arms that he would hold him responsible for the escape of any other Assemblymen. Thereafter pages armed with cigarettes guarded the windows. O'Neill was captured while trying to make his trousers presentable with pins. The whereabouts of the other two has not been discovered, but Sergeant at. irmo PmnaVi qovc ho nn t.Vipiv trark OBSTREP'OKOUS M'D. McDermit had been suffering from ob streporousness all day. He reminds As semblyman Feeney of Lord Randolph Churchill, whom he resembles in counten ance and aspect, although the Britisher never wore a blaze of diamonds on his breast equal to those displayed by the Newark member! He is forming a party of his own. It consists chiefly of Patter son, now, but Potts may join next week. He had a bout with soft gloves early in the afternoon with Speaker Hudspeth, who had left the chair to advocate a bill giving notaries public the same power to execute acknowledgments now held by commis sioners of deeds. Mr. McDermit opposed it, saying that under the present law many errors in important deeds were made, and that the effect of the change would be to increase the danger of blunders. Mr. Hudspeth replied that the only qualifica tion which seemed to be needed to be a commissionerof deeds was to be a political heeler. He spoke with considerable heat and McDermit replied hotly. Then Itiker jumped in, and the Speaker jumped on him, too. The bill received the thirty-one votes it needed, SOUTH JEUSEY GAME. If Messrs. Harris, of Camden, and Cole, of Cape May, come back next Monday evening with the same wrathful feelings they took away tonight, the lobby may be put under martial law. They are furious over the means whicli they think are be ing used to defeat the three bills for the relief of the counties of South Jersey, which are said to be groaning under the tyranny of the syndicate of Philadelphia sportsmen. Cole came near making a charge of bribery on the floor today. Be fore lie had said much he was Interrupted by McDermit with a point of order, and when he resumed, he said he would defer the statement he had proposed to make. He did say, however, that the Democratic caucus had been led by lies and mis representations to decide to defeat the measure. "I charge," he said later in the day, pri vately, "that improper influences have been used to delay and defeat these bills. In all except two cases, only misrepresen tation lias been resorted to. While I was speaking I hac1. iny eyes straight on the two men I refer to in the other two cases, and neither of them dared say a word. Of course, I have no affidavits or legal evi dence to prove that they accepted cash. " During a good part of the session, Cap tain Charles Piatt, the agent or detective of the West Jersey Game Protective So ciety, the official name of the Philadel phia sportsmen, lias been about the State House. He Ls a tall, dark man, with a thick black tieard about his throat and chin, cut after the South Jersey style of 1S4T. He generally sits down somewhere and swings his slouch hat, not saying much, but keeping up a powerful think ing. He is said to be a nice man to meet socially. Few persons believe that any money has been used to atïect the fate of the bills. The influ ences most probably brought to bear are Captain Piatt's social qualities and repre sentations and tiie fellow feeling whicli exists between sportsmen. Colonel Hep penheimer and Mr. Keeney, for example, both go hunting on the Tuxedo preserves, and they regard the position of the Phila delphia's who cross over into Jersey to shoot, and wiio want to protect the Kamo from extermination by unsportsmanlike methods, as the same as that of the Jer seymen who take their sports in the Tux edo preserves in New York State. Even South Jersey members are opposed to the bills, among them being Harris' col league from Camden, Captain Smith. One reason for making the defeat of the bills a caucus measure was the statement that they would greatly strengthen the hands of Republican bosses, by giving them power to oppress or reward voters. A SNUB FOR THE KICKERS. The Democrats throughout the debate showed a disposition to treat the subject in the fairest way, and it was mainly the excitement exhibited by Harris and Cole which caused the screws to be turned down tight. Harris demanded that Cap tain Piatt be ruled off the floor, and Colonel Heppenheimer defiantly had a resolution passed, extending to Captain Piatt the privileges of the floor. Mr. Harris is going to invoke the aid of Sena tors Pleiffer, Baker and Newell, all Demo crats from South Jersey, aud if it is proved that the bills are non-political, the decree of the caucus will be recalled. Today furnished further proof of the difficulties with which the Democratic leaders have to cope. The party in the Legislature has the responsibility of the majority, but little of the power of the majority. In the Assembly there are thirty-two Democrats. Thirty-one votes are required to pass a bill. If, therefore, one member Is absent and one deserts, the party is powerless. That is the case today as regards the Werts Excise bill. The dispatches received from Bigelow's home show that he is confined to his house by a cold, his physician refusing permission to go to Trenton. Potts won't vote for the bill, at present, at least. The feeling against Potts Is becoming strong. He is Gift almost entirely alone by the other Democrats, They say that if DOWN ON POTTS. he had declined from the start to vote for ' the proposed measure, it would be oue I thing; but thev claim that lie has deserted them after haying virtually pledged his I vote. It is lmrd for them to see what lie ι has to gain politically from his present course. To vote for the bill might have lesseifeu Ins popiilArtt^wftti'"li}8'Wfttisli<n*· ents, but his present attitude ruins him with the Democratic party. Feeney's bill to enable the Hobokeu Firemen's Helief Association to have a treasurer has been passed by the Senate. The association has $21,000 on mortgage and ¥3,000 in bank. The bylaws require the treasurer to give bonds m double the amount in his charge, or #48,000. Bonds I to this amount ai'e not easily procured, and the bill, therefore, makes the. security twice the amount in cash, or $0,000. Mr. Voorhees got in fair shape for pas sage the County Koad bill. It authorizes Board of Freeholders, by a two-thirds vote, to have roads macadamized and kept in thorough repair. One-third the expense is to bo borne by the township and two thirds by the county. The country mem bers opposed the bill because farmers do not like taxes; but great benefits are ex pected from it in the way of good roads, and it is believed by its advocates that the gains will prove ultimately to warrant the expense. The bill authorizing the construction of bridges across the Kill Von Knll and the Arthur Kill was made a special order for Tuesday at eleven A. M. The bill making the salary of the Mayors of Jersey City and Newark «5,000 and giv ing them two clerks at fias and Î75 α month was ordered to a third reading. FORTUNE'S FAVORITES. Horses Well Backed . Were Winners at Guttenberg Yesterday. A decided change in the weather greets visitors on their way to Clifton today, and as the programme is comparatively light, a falling off in attendance can naturally be expected. One good race for backers, however, is assured in the Fiskat-ah-kwah Handicap, with sixteen horses colored on the cards as probable starters,and the weights so nicely adjusted that there either isn't a sure thing in it, or there are a dozen, according to individual opinion. And although the fields are comparatively small for the other events the character of the horses entered insures good contests. At Guttenberg yesterday a gala day was enjoyed. The crowd was exceptionally large, twenty-eight bookmakers attend ing" to its wants, and several of the races produced exciting contests, favorites and second favorites winning every race. In the first race Mazie would have given the backers a little surprise had her boy, Riley, shown a little more judgment or ability iu the stretch. There the race was reduced to a match between Mazie and Easterbok, the latter winning by a neck, with suitor third, a length away. On the strength of his performance Wednesday, Repudiator was made a strong favorite for the second race, but Kiley. who failed so badly with Mazie in the first race, brought his mount, Isis, up in this, and won under the whip by two lengths. ^UtliillULiUU, cl tc iv/ x uiietuuv m tue third race, went out with the lead, and was never headed. He opened a gap and won easily by four lengths. Vevay, a new candidate at the half mile tracks, was backed heavily in the fourth race on the strength of his per formance last year. It was a hard nice between him and Can't Tell, the latter being beaten a head. For the last race, Carlow was the favor ite, and he proved an easy winner, while Osborne, coming with a rush at the end, took the place from Electricity. targe Fields for Guttenberg.

Cele^jratiiifc|<he Wi rt Î ιί I i* yo f (Vheen fc >ifîi é ^ by Having κ Jolly Good Time—A Few of the Many People Who Were There. Nearly all the Hebrew elite of Jer sey City, and several visitors from other towns, went to the Purlin mas querade ball of Hudson Lodge of the Independent Order of B'nai B'rith, at Cooper Hall, last evening. Every one had a jolly time, and no one had a better time than Mr. Abra ham Kanegsberg, who clattered about the room ill a great pair of sabots as if he were just starting out, the peasant that he looked to chase sparrows away from his father's vineyard on the Rhine. Abe IVeil went about the room as one of Jersey City's "finest," and looked as if he would arrest any one candidate for the position advertised in the sign on the back of his sister, Mrs. l>avid Baumann, which intimated that the lady was "looking for a husband." Mr. Joseph Kind stalked about as a king. He started ahead of all the others in the grand march of entry, and the costumes that followed him were as ludicrous as they were good in /Ιιαο-πιβο IVlr.

One of the taking pieces in the first part was "Pocohoutas," sung by Mr. Pashley and the club. The first part of the programme closed with the "Bill of Fare." The opening selection of the second part was one of the songs of the New York University. A fine piece was, In a Gondola, " sung by a quintette, with Mr. Tilton as the soloist. "Blue Beard," a solo by Mr. Bryan, was excellent. Two college songs, "Thou Art My Own Love" and "Maria's Lambkin," were taking, and "The Soldiex-s' Chorus" and "Lullaby" closed the exercises.
