Over Thirty Thousand
People Read It.
Our only competitor was asleep while
the Board of Trade committee had its
conference with Engineer Brooks of
the Pennsylvania Railway regarding
the change of street grades incident to
the elevation of the tracks.
The Jersey City News was wide
awake, however, and so the people
read a long and Interesting account of
the conference and of the plans in this
paper yesterday.
Probably our only competitor will
copy the news to-day.
A New Charter for Jersey City.
It is proposed that the new charter
bill shall be made a law without further
delay and submitted to a vote of the
people of Jersey City next Tuesday.
There is scarcely a doubt that if it is it
will tie accepted.
The municipal government of Jer
sey City is atrocious; so bad that citi
j zens go to the Legislature declaring
/ that any change must be an improve
/ ment. The departments are honey
combed with sinecures; attempts at
public improvements are mere farces
because favored contractors must fill
their purses. Taxes are heavy and the
money is wasted.
A change is imperatively demanded.
But The News has pointed out that
the first Mayor to exercise its auto
cratic powers should be one elected by
the people with the knowledge that he
was to wield them.
Our lawmakers have not accepted
this suggestion. Nevertheless let not
the people be disquieted. The citizens
Ui ocravy v>ii>y cau iuutuj uc wui sc uu
than they are now even supposing a
change is made from an autocratic
political syndicate to an autocratic
Meanwhile, The Jersey City News
congratulates Mayor Cleveland on the
opportunity to be soon given him of
introducing honesty, order and econ
omy into the affairs of the metropolis
of New Jersey.
It also congratulates the people of
Jersey City on the fact that they have
an organ devoted to the interests of
good government—one which already
has proved itself capable of securing
great results for the welfare of the
people. If the new charter shouldn’t
prove everything that is wanted, The
Jersey City News will help next
year to get an improved one.
How provoking it is that President
Harrison should be so long making up
his mind when the Republicans have
been four years out of office.
The tenure of a dozen Republican
office holders put in danger in one
morning! And yet the Republican
papers complain that the Democratic
majority in the Legislature is doing
nothing. _
That Unfunded Debt.
“The best laid plans of mice and
men aft gang aglee,” says the poet,
and the members of the Finance
Board must have agreed with him this
morning when they got Mayor Cleve
land’s message, “knocking out” in a
single round their funding scheme for
the adjustment of the city debt.
It would be hasty to pass judgment
either on the Finance Board's scheme
or the Mayor’s action on such short
consideration, but it occurs to us that
there may be a modicum of right on
both sides.
That some permanent basis of set
tlement should be established as soon
as possible is an obvious proposition;
but any plan which merely throws
dust in the public eyes, and serves as a
new starting point for the accumula
tion of fresh liabilities, should be con
demned and defeated at any coat of
temporary embarrassment.
There is no reason why the city’s
affairs should not be settled on the
most favorable terms. The wealth of
the community is a guarantee to Its
creditors which places its financial
operations altogether outside the kite
flying class, and either the county or
any other corporation ought to be
glad to hold its interest paying bonds.
But now that the Mayor has stamped
on the Board of Finance’s plan, per
haps he will suggest a better one.
If “Ras” Lewis, the benign presi
dent of the Fat Men’s Club ever gets
into an aldermanic chair, it will re
quire a block and steam windlass to
get him out again. He remarked in
convention last evening that if any
Third District Republican voted
against him he would “sit on him.” A
voter who ever felt the weight of such
an argument as that would come out
| flat for Lewis, dead or alive.

Water wing in the Senate. That
body decided yesterday, by a vote of
14 to 2, not to permit the people of
Newark to express at the polls their
opinion of the project to issue $0,000,
000 of bonds to pay for a new water
Senator Edwards, who proposed
that a popular vote be taken, argued
that as the people would have to pay
the $0,000,000, they had a right to a
voice in the matte*. No proposition
could be more truly American than
this: but it was overwhelmingly re
Senator Martin declared that the
people were in favor of the bond issue.
If this be so, what objection can the
Swindleeates have to a popular vote?
If it be not so, the iniquity of the con
spiracy to saddle an enormous debt on
the city needs no clearer demonstra
The safest way is undoubtedly to
consult the people.
The House has made a record on
this subject. When it passed the
Feeney bill it declared that the people
should be consulted; that a gigantic
water scheme should not be foisted on
a city unless the people voted in favor
of it.
The House should be true to its
record. Its sincerity will soon be put
to the test. If it were sincere, its ap
preciation of the feeling of the public
in the matter will lead it to promptly
defeat the Newark Water Bond bill.
Col. Heppenheimer and Assembly
man Feeney have already distinguished
themselves in the people’s fight for
protection against the syndicates.
They will have an opportunity to win
fresh laurels soon,

The “Main Line” was again pre

The cast is uniformly excellent. The
play is full of striking scenes and inci

trains about to collide is a feature
that provoked the keenest interest
and excitement on the part of the au
dience, who last night alternately held
their breath and4burst forth in loud
applause of the performers. The story
is pretty and the acting of Laura Dins

When the war of the Rebellion
began the beautiful country place,
Arlington, covered the point of land
jutting into the Mississippi river, four
miles below Baton Hougc. Up the
long avenue of pride of China trees
Mr. Ripley, a wealthy and prominent
Louisianian, had brought his bride
one day in the early fifties. In the
Charleston convention Mr. Ripley had
been one of the two Louisianians who
would hot leave the hall.when to leave
meant secession; and when, after the
war broke out, he came home one day
to find a home made Confederate flag
floating over his plantation, he sorrow
fully remonstrated at the haste of his
zealous wife. Physical infirmities kept
him out of the army, but he served the
Confederacy in securing supplies.
Mrs. Ripley, who has told in graphic
fashion the story of a woman’s life in
the Confederacy, relates in “Flag to
Flag,” that or. the morning when
Baton Rouge was bombarded by the
union gunboats she was roused trom
sleep by the noise of cannon. With all
a woman’s faith in the cause she had
so heartily espoused she was sure that
(tenoral Breckinridge mustconquer. As
the morning wore on she saw coming
from the town what seemed to be a
dock of sheep. It was not sheep, but
human beings rushing pell mell.
Pouring, panting, rushing down th6
hot and dusty road they came—
women bonnetless, some with wrap
pers hastily thrown over nightgowns,
and men trundling children too young
to run. On they came straight fot Ar
lington, 500 terrified human beings
fleeing from bursting shells.
The store closets of the house were
thrown wide open, and the bewildered
mistress, with her child two months
old. laid herself down and cried, while
hungry men killed the sheep and oxen,
cut off portions of the meat, cooked it
hastily at fires built of fence rails and
ate it as savages eat. The twelve
pounds of tea that the house .contained
was turned into the soap kettles, from
which the “decoction"’ “was drunk
faster than it was made,” as one of the
negroes put it.'

ill with malignant scarlet fever,and she
was the only person who had aroom to
herself, the'fear of fever being greater
than that of bullets. Amid all the
confusion several children first opened
their eyes in a cruel world, and the
household stores were taxed to then
utmost to meet these unexpected de
At noon came the news of defeat,
and at night the rain which follows
heavy cannonading added to the
inisry. Men roosted in the trees
whose broad leaves shed the wet, and
counted themselves well off until a
few shells dropped about the house
sent them tumbling to the ground like
ripe persimmons from a shaken tree.
The shells had the effect of clearing
Arlington of its unwelcome guests, and
among those to leave was the scarlet
fever patient, The sick child grew
to a beautiful woman, but to this day
she is deaf as a result of that ex
Baton Rouge was sacked. Precious
portraits were slashed with sabers,
dainty china was thrown in a heap on
the floor and ground to powder, beau
tiful dresses were ruthlessly hacked to
pieces and private letters -were given to
the winds of heaven. Such is war.
Under these circumstances the Ripleys
concluded to escape into Texas, the
husband going on before, and of ne
cessity leaving his delicate wife to
make'the best of her way by holding a
pistol at the hfead of her sulky colored

At Houston Mrs. Ripley tried to get
milk or butter, but was told that those
commodities were “out of season,” and
the baby had to content herself with
dry sweet potato. But Houston was
then exultant over General Magruder’s
brilliant exploit, by which he had cap
tured the city from the Union forces,
and one evening a charming young
Texan in a blue silk evening dress,
presented the daring soldier with an
elegant sword, borrowed for the occa
sion from a Mexican veteran, to whom
it was subsequently returned.
Texas, however, became unsafe, and
they were forced to flee into Mexico,
which at that time was busy with the
struggle of Maximilian and his French
men to get control of the country. In
Piedras Negras Mrs. Ripley occupied
the office of the Confederate customs
officer, who handled the money to buy
supplies. The big Mexican dollars
were put into her safe for safe keeping,
and the swarm of Hebrew traders and
speculators brought her the money
they were afraid to keep on their per
sons. For two months she sat on
money, slept on money, watched by
money, not knowing the amount, the
names, nor often even the faces of the
trusting depositors.
Even in Texas the common necessi
ties of life were so scarce that to lose
or break a needle was a calamity;
there were no salt, no candles, and
only home-made soap. Pins and hair
pins were luxuries, and tooth brushes
were made of twigs. Hairbrushes
there were none, and one comb an
swered for a family. Cornmeal pound
cake was a delicacy, and “coffee” was
made from peanuts, sweet potatoes,
rye, beans and peas. “Tea” meant
sage or orange leaves, and red pepper
played the part of quinine. It cost
$90 in Confederate currency to buy a
yard and a half of blue cotton denims
to make a pair of trousers.—A South

the time he had a mortgage on his
house, his business was in a desperate
condition, he was threatened with
paersis. Pretty soon coffee began to
rise. It kept going up. He cleared a
handsome sum, paid off the mortgage
and had a substantial balance left.
Some one slipped the pin out of his
scarf one day in a crowd. The very
next day he fell down stairs and broke
two ribs, hi wife upset a bottle of
purple ink all over his new summer
suit, his little boy played truant
from school and got arrested for tying
a package of fire crackers to a dog's
tail, the parlor maid smashed the now
chandelier, one of the horses devel
oped gianders, the hired man upset a
ladle of molten lead down his boot leg,
the gas meter man brought in a bill of
707,000 feet for the month, the cook
set the house on fire with a pan of
melted grease, and moths got in the
new parlor carpet. The owner was
distracted and sent for two detectives.
The opal was found the next day in a
pawnshop. He recovered it just in
time to get out of the coffee market
before the panic. Talk about horse
shoes and four-leaved clovers! They
count for nothing in comparison to
the luck in an opal.— Han Francisco
In Style If It Brealts a Button,
Mrs. Sherwood tells us that it is en

it, it is cafe au lait, for callers to leave
a card for each member of the family.

the aforesaid Smiths must each leave

Some Day.
Some day, some day of days, threading the street,
With idle, heedless pace
Unlooking for such grace,
I shall behold your race!
Some day, some day of days, thus may we meet.
Perchance the sun may shine from skies of May,
Or winter's icy chill
Touch whitely vale and hill;
What matter? I shall thrill
Through every vein with summer on that day.
Once more life's perfect youth will all come back,
And for a moment there
1 shall stand fresh and fair
And drop the garment, care;
Once more my perfect youth shall nothing lack.
I shut my eyes now, thinking how ’twill be,
How, face to face, each soul
Will slip its long control.
Forget the disxnul dole
Of dreary fate’s dark, separating sea.
And glance to glance, and hand to hand in greet
Tlie past with all its fears,
Its silence and its tears,
Its lonely, yearning years,
Shall vanish in the moment of that meeting

It Was a Pleasant Affair—Other Social
The Hudson County Wheelmen
gave a smoker last evening at their
rooms, No. 555 Communipaw avenue.
At least a hundred men were there
and they had a good time generally.
Previous to the hour set for recita
tions many of the guests amused
themselves playing on the bigycola.
There were handsome prizes for the
winners, consisting of a gold watch
chain, a clock, a silver-headed cane
and other small articles.
The first prize was won by W. 8.
Higgins, with a score of 2,650. J. T.
Griffiths captured the second prize,
and J. L. Robertson walked away
with the third. H. A. Benedict and
W. C. Korth won fourth and fifth

recitation was given by Prof. Mark
ham—“On Board the Cumberland.”
“The Ghost,” not an alarming ghost,
but an amusing one, was given by W.

and Bemuiert, played a number of
good tunes. Vocal solos by T. F.
Merseles and W. E. Eldridge followed.
They also sang a duet composed by
Mr. Merseles and entitled “Do You
Think So,” which took with the boys.
The event of the evening -was a
quartette burlesque, in ballet cos
tume, by the committee, Messrs.
Eldridge, Benedict, Griffiths and Mer
seles. The topical songs were full of
hits at the members, and the ballet
costumes made up in quality what
they lacked in quantity. Mr. Bene
dict’s black whiskers and blond wig
made an.effective contrast, and Mr.
Griffith’s legs were a poem. After the
entertainment there was a good sup
per. Among the guests were
C. J. Appelby, C. E. Kluge,

A musical and literary entertain
ment was given at the Second Presby
terian Church last evening under the
auspices of the Ladies’ Aid Society,
which came near proving a failure.
The principal attractions were the
Park Sisters and Mr. Edward Fabian,
none of whom appeared. They sent
telegrams of excuse, saying that theii
luggage had gone astray. Mr. and
Mrs. Marry Buchanan kindly volun
teered to recite and sing in the place
of Mr. Fabian. Mr. Buchanan amused
the audience with comic recitations

songs. Edward A. O'Callaghan played

An Old Time Entertainment Welcomed
at the Tabernacle.
“Aunt Polly Basset” held her
“Singin' Skewl” at the Tabernacle
lafst night and the house was crowded
with an enthusiastic audience, who
apparently enjoyed the “publick
reliearsale” as well as the first time it
was produced, many years ago.
“Aunt Polly” was the same eccentric
“Aunt Polly” and received a good
share of the applause.
Some new features have been added
to the “Bingin’ Skewl,” in the way of
new and pretty songs. The costumes
of the style of one hundred years ago
were very becoming. “Belinda Bas
set iuq>ersonateu me uuscmevuus
child in the excellent manner which
has won her so much favorable criti
cism. “The Skewl” and Joel
Basset, who possesses a fine
tenor voice, were warmly ap
plauded. Some excellent recitations
were given by “ye young damsel, Phil
lis,” who was encored. Bijah Noggles
was present and was given a cordial
welcome. The songs and choruses
were well sung and the entire enter
tainment as successful as the former
ones and “Aunt Polly’s Skewl” made a
very creditable showing.
