Oitr only competitor copied yester day the Hoboken story of the Charles M. Hamilton divorce suit from The Jersey City News of Wednesday. Our “beats” on our only competitor yesterday were:— THE BILL’S ALL RIGHT. STOP THE WATER STEAL. BOTH WANT DIVORCE. KERNS ON TOP. REPUBLICAN SQUABBLES. HOBOKEN THESPIANS OF FENDED, and FEATHERSTONE TWICE CON VICTED Not a bad showing for one day, is it? Besides, several of our reports were much better than those of our sole competitor on the same subjects. Newark’s Bond BilL The question whether the city of Newark shall be allowed to issue these $6,000,000 worth of water bonds is of even greater importance to Jersey City than to Newark herself. To the latter corporation the disaster may be limited to the loss of a couple of million dol lars. To this city the injury nmy1>e much more serious, it may mean the loss of our natural water supply. The water supply to which the Lehigh Valley Company pretends to give Ne-wark a title is one to which Jersey City has at least an eaual natural claim, and Newark has no more right to grab it than the Lehigh Company or any other grasping swin dlecate. This whole water question is one which should be handled broadly by some impartial controlling power such as a State water commission, and Jersey City’s representatives will be justified in using all possible efforts to frustrate the Newark grab by in ducing the Legislature to refuse to legalize the bond issue until proper means are adopted to conserve the rights of their own constituents. Senator Edwards and Messrs. Hep penheimer and Feeney cannot do a more useful or a more popular thing than oppose a firm resistance to the passage of the Newark bond bill this session. Let us have a year to talk this whole matter over, and then let us have a State commission. Thk “Young Reapers,” a Sunday school class in the First Methodist Episcopal Church of Hoboken, gave an entertainment in aid of the poor of that city last evening and it was a suc cess. The condition of Hoboken’s poor ■was described in The Jersey City News a few days ago and private charity is now actively at work doing what the city government has neg lected. If Postmaster General Wanamaker is looking for “bargains” in popularity he eannot get one cheaper than by completing the Jersey City post office. The need is urgent. The State Deficit, State Comptroller Andrews’ state ment shows that the estimated re ceipts of the State Fund, from which the current expenses of the State are paid, are $200,000 behind the current expenses. This is true, not alone of this year, but it will be true of every year in the future. Two propositions have been made to meet the emergency. One is to re coup the State Fund at the expense of the School Fund. It is not proposed of course, to “hook” any of the in come of the School Fund. That is irrevocably pledged to the sup port of the public schools of the State by the constitution. Under existing statistics, the moneys received from the sale of riparian lands are added to the principal of the School Fund. It is this money that it is proposed to di vert to the State Fund. The other method of meeting the emergency is to impose a State tax. The exaction of a mill on the dollar of rateables in the State will bring $800,000 into the State Treasury, and such a tax will answer all present de mands on the State Fund for two years. The people of New Jersey will view with much disfavor any interference with the School Fund. The annual accretions to the principal of the fund from the riparian moneys are a wise provision to meet the yearly increas ing demands of the schools. To divert these funds now is to limit the expenditure for the schools to its present amount. This would forbid any allowance whatever for the growth of the State ! in educational matters. To that ex tent it would be an impairment of the efficiency of the State's school system. New Jersey’s educational arrange ments constitute one of the chief glories of this great Commonwealth. Let nothing be done that will make them less serviceable than they are. The proper way to provide for pub lic necessities is to impose a public tax Tlie State tax-payers are not so want ing in public spirit as to object to contribute, every other year, a dollar out of every thousand they own for the protection and advantages the State offers them. The Newark Board of Trade is to send a deputation to Trenton next Tuesday to protest against the passage of the Charter bill. Mere waste of energy! Let them send down a deputation to protest against the ratification of the Lehigh Valley water job through the passage of the $0,000,000 bond bill. The new phase of the Polo Ground trouble wherein the New York Com missioner of Public Works declared his right to keep 111th street open no matter what conclusion the Board of Aldermen of New York may reach, is likely to benefit Jersey City. The residents will probably see the Giants play several of their spring games here. Indeed, Manager Powers is now busy preparing the local diamond for the opening game of the season on Saturday. But it isn’t time for the know nothings and anxious land speculators to again prate about the New Yorks playing the season through here, there and everywhere but in the city of their franchise, and where their patronage exists. New Jersey’s Metropolis. “In the sight of the entire State and the country at large Jersey City is the metropolis of New Jersey in right of wealth, commerce and progressiveness—probably in population, too.11— Jersey City News. Our new contemporary has not yet had the time to look around and study its surroundings. When it does it will see things differently. It will see in the returns of property valuations that Jersey City is millions behind Newark in wealth, that Jersey City’s “commerce,” which strikes The News with so much awe, is the inter state commerce that only passes through the town, and that Jersey City’s “progressiveness.” while it heaps up a mighty debt, fails to provide even a decent street pavement. As for population a superficial study of the vital statistics, the number of dwellings and the election figures reveal the truth too plainly for contradiction. The metropolis of New Jersey is Newark, which possesses ail the characteristics of a New Jersey city, and is not like Jersey City, a mere overflow community from New York. All this is from the Newark Journal. It is sweetly pretty, and beautifully absurd. The claim of Newark to be the metropolis of the State strikes us very much in the same light that a similar claim on the part of Brooklyn might strike a resident of New York. The Journal's general allusion to vital statistics is amusing. Perhaps it means that more people die in New ark. It may be right about that. We have always thought Newark might be a good place to die in. Why does it not take up some of the industrial features of the two cities which we compared in our recent edi torial? Why? Simply because they leave Newark somewhere in the middle of the last decade, as compared with Jersey City. Now the Newark Journal claims to have first presented the name of Clin ton B. Fisk as the most available can didate for the governorship on the Republican side Nonsense, The Sunday Morning News pointed out eight weeks ago that he led the field. One of the official papers in Jersey City made a hitter attack on Colonel Stevens, a few days ago, in its article on the division of the comity. If the county is divided. Jersey City will lie less able to pay the big printing bills of this official paper. If any paper outside of Hoboken had printed this, we would have simply thought the writer was stu pidly impertinent. It comes from the Hudson County Democrat- Advertiser, however. “My Aunt Bridget” a Success. Scott Marble’s musical comedy, “My Aunt Bridget,” was given last night at Jacobs’ Theatre to a large and de lighted audience. Much variety business is worked into the play, but it is all of the highest order. There was scarcely a flaw in the entire per formance. The humor of Mr. George Monroe is irresistible. As Aunt Bridget he scored a splendid success, and he well deserved it. In his delineation of the unpolished and portly, but rich Irish aunt on a visit to America, studying “etikay” from a book and causing her would-be swell nephew the most intense annoyance by her stupid but laughable blunders, he would almost force a laugh a deaf and dumb man by his facial from expressions alone. Mr. John C. Rice, as the spendthrift nephew, is also a clever comedian, and both are sup ported by such well known musical comedy people as Edward Cameron, Robert J. Ward. Tony Murphy, George A. Gragg, Miss Ella Gardiner, Miss Mabel Florence, Miss Jennie Fisher, Miss Polly Casey, Miss Jessie Gardiner, Miss Catherine Gerald, Miss Leo Gordon, Rosie Alton and the Flor entine Lady Quartette. “My Aunt Bridget” will be the attraction the bal ance of the week.

More Men Than Women in the United States, but the Girls Have the Preponderance in the Cities. The Editor of the JERSEY CITY HEWS presents his compliments to the ladies of Jersey City, and respectfully invites their co-operation in making this column a feature of general inter est and utility. Information and sug gestions are earnestly solicited, and assurance is given that all communi cations will receive immediate and careful attention, and will be regarded as strictly confidential if the writers so desire. The humor of the moment is to go back a hundred or more years—per haps because it would not be conven ient to go forward even fifty. New houses are being built in the Colonial style, and the furniture in them is of the same date. Bureaus are lifted a foot from the ground, and the chairs are of the same designs as those used by our great grandfathers, or, if we did not have any, somebody else's irreat. grandfathers. Klnnire and Direetoire frocks are struggling for supremacy with the women, and even the men want to be allowed to wear silk stockings, buckles and knee breeches when in full evening dress. This may all be out of compliment to the approaching centennial oj Washington's inauguration. It is of interest to know that there are quite a number of relics in the Na tional Museum at Washington which might serve as models. They are of great interest to the ladies of this period as illustrating the private life and domestic manners of a bygone age. They cast odd sidelights, too, on the character and career of the Father of his Country. Among these objects of interest is a gauntlet of green velvet for the left hand, said to have been worn on State occasions by Mrs. Washington. An other is a part of a set of china with the Washington monogram and the names of the States inscribed on the links of a chain encircling each piece, which was presented by General Lafayette to Mrs. AVashington. Baron Rothschild purchased a few vears since for $10,000 a pair of Worcester vases decorated in gold and colors, with groups of animals painted by O’Neal, said to he facsimibes of those in the collection which' were pre sented to the Father of his Country by Mr. Samuel Vaughan, of London. Patriotism does not need a shining light, for by the illumination given by the candles in a tall pair of brass can dlesticks, attached together with a brass shield fastened to it by an up right rod to serve as a shade, did George AVashington write his farewell address to the Continental Congress. He must have been something of a mu sician or probably Miss Nellie Custis would never have presented him with a richly inlaid Spanish mandolin, and yet she did so. A small silk blanket, which AVashington was held in while being christened, had a brilliiant red silk lining, until Mr. Custis on one oc casion of a AVashington’s Birthday celebration in Fredericksburg, Ara., allowed it to handed around, when some vandal cut it out. It is interesting to know for those who relish a delightful flavor for for bidden fruit when playing cards for small sums of money, that Washing ton enjoyed a harmless game like the other gentlemen of his day, and, moreover, has left in his own hand writing an account of his gains and losses. In a large ledger, in the neatest of penmanship, is a record of his private business for twenty-one years. The minutest details of daily expendi ture are now exposed to the most cas ual visitor of the National Museum. Besides playing cards, Washington evidently had a ’‘mash,” for here is the picture exhibited of the Countess of Huntington presented to George by the Countess liersolf. ■Woman In the Census. In 1880 there were 50,000,000 of peo ple in this country, and about 883,000 move males than females. That was only because more males were born; the females live the longest. Of the centenarians, 1,409 were men and 3,607 were women. The boys start out nearly a million ahead and are in the majority until the sixteenth year, when the girls are a little more numerous. Sweet sixteen is a numerous age, anyhow. After that, first one and then the other is in the majority, the girls gradually gain ing after thirty-six, and leaving the men far behind after seventy-five. To balance this longevity of tfie females, in almost every State a few more boys are born; not many more, but almost always a few. It is astonishing to see where the census gives thousands and hundreds of thousands of boys and girls under one year old; there are, with one or two exceptions, always a few hundred more boys, and only a few hundred more. In only six of the forty-nine States and Territories are more girls born, and in these States they are slightly in excess—from eleven to eighty. These exceptions are Arizona, Delaware, Florida, Louisiana, Montana, and North Carolina. The fact that the females are in the majority in all the original thirteen States but Delaware and North Caro lina, especially in Massachusetts and New England, has created the impres sion that there is something in the climate or in the people that produces more women than men. This is a popular but egregious error. In Mas sachusetts there were in 1880, 437 more boys than girls under one year of age. The males are in the minority in al almost all the Eastern States, because many of the young men go West. All over the West there is an excess of men, and those who are not foreigners have been withdrawn from the States further East. In the new States and Territories this is most noticeable. In Idaho, for instance, there are twice as many males as females, but the male infants are only a little in excess of the females. The Wwt is drawing heavily on the BrtgMiaMiwwimwun* i it* i W 1i— n* m '■**— ! I manhood of the East, From this all i the old States haVe suffered. Massa j ehusetts seems to have lost more than i any. There are parts of Northern Ohio | which are portions of New' England | removed. Massachusetts shows the loss and Ohio shows the gain. Another curious fact is that while ! all over the country more boys than | girls are born, in cities and towns there are more girls. In Georgia there are 187 counties, and in ail but twenty-six of them there are more hoys than girls. These twenty-six counties include the eleven large towns and cities. Strange that not one of the cities should be left out. Stranger still, the excess of girls is about in proportion to population. Savannah leads off with 528 more girls than boys; Atlanta, 385; Augusta, 304; Macon, 154; Columbus, 181; Carters ville, 123; Rome, 50; Athens, 50; Al bany, 1C; Griffin, 11, and Americus, 7. Savannah, though she has a some what smaller population than Atlant a, has a larger excess of girls. This seems to be peculiar to old cities. It. is so with Baltimore, New Orleans and Newr York. The excess is greater in New Orleans than anywhere else. Is tills a peculiarity of the French? The facts present a question worth studying. Are there fewer men in the cities than in the country?—Philadel phia Times. Moles Are Out of Date. Strawberry marks are out of date; long lost brothers will have to remain lost, or at all events sisters will. Bits of black court plaster, or patches, as they are called, have always been ad mired, especially on a pretty face, and even moles have been known to be called beauty spots. The patches re main in, but the moles are out, that is, most all of them. Some specialists in New York are kept busy all the time touching them with an electric needle, when, presto, out they go. The women are in flocks waiting patiently for hours for their turn. Little red‘spots take the place for a while of the moles, but gradually disappear. In case of a return of the moles a second applica tion of the needle is sure to effectually prevent their second reappearance. These same specialists also use elec tricity to remove delicate mustaches from the lips of their fair patients. These are not objected to in other countries where they exist in a moder ate degree. Natalie, of Servia, has quite an outline on her upper lip and yet is always considered one of the beauties of Europe. But Americans will have none of them. Some Conspicuous Women. The Marchioness of Donegal is suing for divorce. This shows that true happiness is not attained by being a marchioness. Neither is it attained by being a marquis, for Lord Donegal also proposes to sue for divorce. Princess Julia Kranowski, of Po land, lias disappeared from Point Pleasant with $300 worth of jewelry. The irony of fate had compelled her recently to serve as a domestic. But since the jewelry vanished her story that she was a princess in disguise is no longer believed. The battle for the rights of women has been opened in Greece by Calliv hoe Pai-ren, who has started a paper in behalf of her sex. All over the State women did them selves proud at the elections for School Trustees. Probably they showed most pluck at Asburv Park, where they elected Mrs. C. 0. George, a member of the School Board, although poli ticians resorted to bulldozing tactics to defea her. Mrs. Anastasia Parsells, who was born three years before the inaugura tion of the first President of the United States, celebrated her 103d birthday by an informal reception at the home of her daughter and son-in law, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin W. Hough ton, at Bayonne recently. Mr. Hough ton says that he believes that she is good for another ten years yet. I.ullaby, E. F. in Chicago Morning Newt. Hush, little one, and fold your hands; The sun hath set. the moon Is high; The sun is singing to the sands, And wakeful posies are beguiled By many a fairy lullaby; Hush, little child, my little child! Dream, little one, and in your dreams Float upward from this lowly place, Float out on mellow, misty streams To lands where bideth Mary mild, And let her kiss thy little face, You little child, my little child! Sleep, little one, and take thy rest, With angels bending o'er thee. Sleep sweetly on that Father's breast Whom our dear Christ hath reconciled; But stay dot there, come back to me, 0, little child, my little child! ADAMS-HOWELL. A Pretty Wedding in the Lafayette Methodist Church—Society Events. A‘brilliant wedding was celebrated in the Lafayette Methodist Church yesterday afternoon. The bride was Miss Helen Mar Howell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. A, Howell, and the bridegroom, Mr. J. A. Adams, of Orange. The church was profusely decorated with flowering plants and festoons of smilax. The bridal party entered the church at four o’clock preceded by the ushers, Mr. William N. Howell, Mr. Stephen M. Smith, Mr. Ernest T. Carter and Mr. Stewart Waterman. Sadie May Howell, a little niece of the bride, was maid of honor, and presented a pretty appearance in a gown of white lace draped over China silk. She carried a large hat filled with roses. Master Freddie White and Master Willie Adams were pages. The bride walked with the bridegroom. She wore a handsome gown of pearl blue faille Franeaise, elaborately trimmed with embroided crepe lise and draped with pink velvet forget-me-nots. She earned a bunch of La France roses. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. William R. Duryea, after which a reception followed, from five to eight o’clock, at the residence of the bride’s parents, No. 115i Pacific avenue. The spacious parlors were decorated with rare ferns and beautiful flowers. Fine concert music was played and much enjoyed. Supper was served by Mor row & Day. During the evening Mr. and Mrs. Adams left, after receiving the congratulations of their friends, for an extended wedding trip. The bride was the recipient of many costly gifts. Among those present were Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Howell, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Howell, Mr. and Mrs. T. P. Sherwood, Mrs. Bowker, Mr. and Mrs. bieorge Rogers, Mr. and Mrs. Loueks, Mr. and Mrs. White, the Rev. and Mrs. Duryea, Miss Susie Duryea, Miss Lillie Duryea, Mr. and Mrs. \Vondling, Mrs. Roe, Miss Roe,. 5Jr. and Mrs. Kenedy, Mr. and Mrs, Adams, Mr. and Mrs. Robert McKnight, Miss Margaret McKnight, Miss Janet Mc Knight, Miss Susie McKnight, Miss Whitney, Miss Florence Coleman, Miss Minnie Potter, of Newark, Mr. Stras ton Adams, Mr. Stewart Watermrn, Mr, Elmer Adams, Mr. Steven M, Smith. Mr. Ernest, T. Carter. Mr. Wil liam Howeil and Mr: Louis Sherwood. Eurlire Was the Game. A card party was given by Miss Eflle Stratton, of Congress street,, last night. Euchre was played during the early portion of the evening, and five tables were arranged for players. Pretty prizes were awarded to those who made the best score. After' sup per, which was served at eleven o’clock, dancing became the chief amusement. The evening was a pleasant one, and greatly enjoyed by the guests, some of whom were'Mr. and Mrs. James Strat ton, Mr. and Mrs. George Bauer, Miss Alice Dickinson, Miss May Scott, Miss Annie Wilber, Miss Mamie Stratton, Miss Kate Ackerman, Mr. Rudolph Harkins, Mr. Arthur Church, Mr. Irv ing English, Mr. Harry Collins and Mr. James Seguine. 1VE WANT A POSTOFFICE BUILDING. O, Wanamaker Graciously Hear the Prayer of Suffering Jersey City ! The old Gregory mansion, which a highly moral Republican administra tion purchased at an exorbitant figure and converted into a postofHee building, has become wholly inade quate to the demands which are made upon it. At the hours when the car riers are in the office making up then deliveries the place is so crowded that the men greatly hinder each other in their work, and so limited is the space in proportion to the business trans acted that it is only by extraordinary efforts on the part of the Postmaster and his assistants that the work is ac complished. In order to remedy this defect, the department built a large wing to the north of the old mansion last summer, which Was to have been completed by February 1. On that date the work men left the building, although the structure was not finished. The wing was intended for the accommodation of tlie money order and general de livery department*, and notwithstand ing this fact no drawers or boxes were put in for the use of the money order department, and no provision was made for lighting and heating the Postmaster Kelly visited Washing ton recently and laid the matter be fore the postofflce authorities and urged upon them the necessity of hav ing the building completed at once. His trip seems to have been unavail ing. Today the much needed space lies idle. __ Mr. Miller Advocates Single Tax. “The Justice of the Single Tax” was the subject of the remarks of Mr. J. D. Miller at the meeting of the Single Tax League last night. He argued for the abolishment of the present system of taxation, on the ground that the labor ing classes Would have a chance of securing a foothold in the world if all things were equal. His view is, that if a landlord owned a piece of property worth $2,000 under the present system, lie would be glad to give it away under a single tax plan. “The earth belongs to the Lord, and the values upon it belong to man,” said the speaker. “All the landlord wants of the land is the right to draw a tax from his fellows. When the pres 3iit. tax system is removed, if ever, he will have no use for it.” A Little Black Waif. There is a bright little colored boy at Police Headquarters. About a week ago the police picked the boy up on the streets, and he said he was Benja min Lucas, of Washington. He has told several contradictory stories of his origin and parents, all of which Chief Murphy has investigated and found to be untrue. RAILWAY MEN’S DOINGS. Job White, who left the post of gate man at the Pennsylvania station re cently to pursue the less vociferous calling of a fanner at Yardville, N. J., was at the station this week visiting his old associates. Job is as great a Prohibitionist as he ever was. Thomas Gallagher, who runs one of the New Brunswick express trains out of the Jersey City station, is the oldest conductor in years of service on the Pennsylvania Railroad. He has been connected with the road in various capacities since boyhood, and not withstanding his years is still one of the most active men in the employ of the company. Pete Reen, the tall, handsome police man whose manly proportions are the admiration of all the lady travellers who have occasion to visit the Penn sylvania station, is confined to his Dome on atoms street witn a sprameu ankle, Pete visited New Brunswick In the early part of the week and while boarding a train he slipped and injured his foot. John Walsh, one of the gatemen at the Pennsylvania station, has never lost a day by sickness or otherwise during the entire four years he has been employed by the company. ~ "lioxiCEr^ Cray Cleek'e Omef, ) City Hall, Bayoyke, n.
