do not affect the bill itself, and are merely precautions to secure their city from its operation. Two hearings were given on the bill to day. The citizens did not show any vio lent desire to talk. One explanation was that they had talked themselves out try ing to get relief from former Legislatures. Another was that most of them went home when they discovered thatthemeet ing of the Committee on Municipal Cor porations set for noon could not be held on account of the press of business in the House. , . Chairman Feeney’s dinner was so good that the citizens who did want to talk were growing impatient in the Assembly Chamber when his well filled overcoat was perceived coming down the aisle. He sat down in the Speaker’s chair, toyed with the gavel and announced that the commit tee would first hear those opposed to the bill. AN OPPONENT FROM NEWARK. Allan L. Bassett, president of the Newark Board of Trade, took the first tilt at the bill He has long, iron-gray hair, a thick beard of the same tint and impres sive eye glasses. He thought the proposed form of government too autro cratic and despotic, in view of the powers conferred on the Mayor. The people, and not the Mayor, should have the power. Mr. Feeney observed that the Demo cratic members from Essox seemed to think it extremely improbable that the charter would ever be submitted to a vote of the people of Newark. Mr. Bassett resumed that the Board of Trade would -withdraw its objections if provision were made for having the ques tion decided at a special election or for special ballots to be cast. He thought that when such a question was on the general ballot people voted on it without thinking. Thus at the election on the library question, only 300 votes were cast against it out of a total of 11,000. He further considered it advisable to make some limitation, say eighteen months, of the time in which the question might be submitted to the people. If these suggestions were attended to, Mr. Bassett concluded, the Board of Trade would not oppose the bill, because its members knew' that Jersey City wanted it or something it.. A further call by Mr. Feeney for volun teers brought down the aisle a tall figure with a red beard and red hair pointed sky ward. The volunteer informed Mr. Feeney that he was John H. Hopken, of Jersey City. Mr. Feeney welcomed Mr. Hopken warmly as being one of the few residents of Jersey City whose acquaintance he had not already made. In a low, sweet voice, Mr. Hopken uttered the opinion that when a city was governed by a ring, the ring would deter mine who should be the Mayor and who would rule through him. Was there a ring in Jersey City? Mr. Feeney inquired, with an appearance of surprise. Oh, yes, Mr. Hopken replied, there was a ring in the Board of Works, one in the Fire Com mission and one in the Police Commission. “I wasn’t aware of any ring,” remarked Mr. Feeney, after he had pinned down Mr. Hopken to a declaiation of the existence of rings. “You must have been away from Jersey City for a long time,” retorted Mr. Hop ken. He said he had come to Trenton in opposition to ring rule, and rather than accept the proposed charter, he would favor electing boards or establish ing them in some other manner. Then he and Mr. Feeney enjoyed a debate re garding the effect on the Board of Educa tion of giving absolute power of appoint ment to the Mayor. Mr. Hopken thought the tendency was not to elevate, and de clared that it gave too much power to the Mayor. Mr. Feeney replied that the Mayors of New York and Brooklyn had the same powers as were sought to be given to the Mayor of Jersey City and the citizens of both towns were perfectly satisfied. The supply of persons opposed to the billhaving given out, Mr. Feeney called for advocates of it. Big Jacob Ringel stepped forward. He said that he did not represent any one except ■ himself, but he felt it his duty to come to Trenton to advocate the passage of the bill. Jersey City was governed different from any other municipality in the country. One of the greatest evils was that there was no head of the city govern ment, no one on whom the re sponsibility for dishonest or negligent acts coulcl be placed. Since 1871 the citi zens had tried year after year to get relief, but the evil had continued to the detri ment of the city’s interests. The streets were not properly cared for and everything except politics was neglected. The proposed charter, he believed, was not the very best that could be offered; but it was an im provement. Some citizens objected to the power under the charter being placed in the hands of the present Mayor; but Mr. Ringel said he was willing to trust him. In reply to questions by Mr. Voorhees, Ringel said he would have preferred that the first Mayor to exercise the absolute power of appointment should be one elected with that understanding; but he was willing to trust the present Mayor. THE NIGHT HEARING. Not many citizens of either Jersey City or Newark presented themselves ut the hearing in the evening. Fagan and Wiedenmayer were both absent. The hearing was principally for the benefit of Mr. Voorhees, to whom Messrs. Feeney and Edwards explained the beauties of the measure and its freedom from partisan ship. .Tftmoa M Miller fl Newark mn.miffl.et urer of jewelry, asked that the bill be amended so as to provide for a separate ballot and for submission to the people within eighteen months, if at all. The feeling in Newark was decidedly opposed to the bill unless such provisions were contained in it. Thomas Peer, of tho Jersey City Jour nal, said he had felt very strongly for a number of years that the government of Jersey City needed reorganizing. At present it was absolutely impossible to place responsibility for anything. For some time it had been impossible to do anything in any Board without a “com bine.” “You mean there is a ring in every board,” said Mr. Feeney. "Yes,” he replied, and he continued that both parties wrere represented in the rings. The Mayors of Jersey City had been good men and could be trusted to make suita ble appointments if they knew they would have to bear full responsibility. He was in favor of single headed commissions. Senator Edwards interrupted him to sav that he had looked up the Citizens’ charter with a view to introducing it, but had found it so imperfect and crude that nothing could be done with it. He had consulted cx-Governor Abbett about it and found that it would have been neces sary to re-enact ev erv section of the charter of Jersey City, with the single-headed commissions in view. •PfWTTOlP AP APPIA1? Mr. Deer usked if the member* of the Police and Fire Department would be se cure from removal under the new charter. Senator Edwards and Mr. Feeney both de clared that they were. Mr. Deer said that some Jersey City Republicans were op posed to the new charter because they feared it would deprive them of their offices. Terence McDonald said that the citizens of Jersey City, without regard for party, clamored for a new charter. Citizens of Newark need have no fear that the bill would affect them. It would simply help Jersey City to get out of a dilemma. He asked that the section relating to the police justices be stricken out. But he urged that the bill be passed. Mr. Feeney announced that the bill would be amended so that the police justices would not be legislated out of office. The amendment will probably give the appointment of police justices to the Governor and provide that the incumbents shall serve out their terms. City Comptroller P. T. Quinn, of New ark, opposed the bill on the ground that political influence would govern the appointment*. Mr. Edwards then explained various points of the charter to the committee. He said that the terms of the various offi cers were so arranged that, while the present Mayor would nave all theappoint ments, the next Mayor would be able to entirely change the character of every Board during nis term of office by making new appointments on the expiration of the terms of the first appointees. He suggested that if Jersey City gave the eighteen months limitation, Newark should give way on the separate ballot question. This seemed to be satisfactory. He also suggested making a provision for giving three days’ notice of the submis sion of the question to a vote of the people. Another change to be made in the bill will provide that, the election of Mayor and of Presi dent of the Board of Aldermen shall take place on alternate years. The Mayor and the President will thus head their tickets. It is believed that this will result in secur ing better men for the second office than if the holder were elected on the same ticket as the Mayor. SWINDLECATES WIN. The Senators Refuse to Submit Newark’s Water Bond Issue to the People. [,Special to the Jersey City Neies.l Trenton, April 2,1889.—That the Senate is disposed to favor the projects of the Water Swindlecates was shown this after noon, when Mr. Edwards sought to have a section added to the Newark Water Bond bill, the effect of which would be to let the people have a say before $6,000,000 of their money was turned over to a cor poration. The amendment provided that before the proposed bond issue was made the question should be submitted to a vote of the people. In asking the Senate to in corporate this proviso in the bill, Mr. Edwards said that when the present Com mon Council of Newark was elected the question of issuing bonds for a 1 water supplv was not under considera tion, and that body therefore in uo way represented the popular desire on the subject. For that reason it had no right to puss on it. The people should have an opportunity of saying whether or not they would accept this additional burden of taxation. Every house and every lot in the city would De subjected to increased taxes by the bill, and it was only right that the question of increasing the bonded indebtedness and taxes to the extent pro posed should be submitted to the people. Mr. Martin, the Senator from Newark, said that he hoped that the amendment would be lost, as he considered that the present Common Council represented the wishes of the people and was capable of dealing with the subject ftiirly. The mat ter had been under discussion for six years and was thoroughly understood. It was the only way Newark could get a pure water supply. 1I1C tuucuuuicub mia luau vjj tv wi to 14. Senator Smith voted with Mr. Ed wards in the affirmative. Those wito voted in the negative were Senators Adrain, Baker, Carter, Cranmer, Hewitt, Gardner, Mallon, Martin, Miller, Nevius, Koe, Rue, Thompson and Werts. The principle of the amendment pro posed by Mr. Edwards is the principle of the Feeney Anti-Swindlecate Water bill. The Senate has apparently passed judg ment on it and rejected it. It is true that it has been represented that Newark was thirsting for a water contract, while Jersey City was not; but the Senators could hardly be expected to stultify themselves so far as to reject one week the right of the people to have a voice in so important a matter, and to declare it the next week. Those who wish to save Jersey City from a new issue of water bonds, would do well to think up some other plan than a bill from the present Legislature requiring a vote of the people. A hearing was given on the Australian Election bin. The speakers and the speeches were those made to the Assem bly Committee. Mr. Baker introduced an act requiring cable, electric and horse railroads to make annual reports to the State Board of Assessors, showing the amount of capital stock issued, the amount paid in and the amount of indebtedness. Another bill introduced by the same gentleman provides that a Secretary of the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the necessary assistants shall be appointed by the Governor. The secretary is to hold office for live years, and is to receive an annual salary of $1,200. This is the office wanted by J. P. O’Donnell. The appoint ment is now made by the Governor and Comptroller. The latter being a Repub lican, it is difficult to find a candidate on whom the two gentlemen can unite. The Senate passed the bill whkh is intended to enable the Jersey City Police Board to retire Inspector Tom Edmondson on half pay. It now goes to the Governor. The bill protecting the Werts Excise law from the consequences of a decision that one of its sections is unconstitutional was ordered to third reading. William Y. Steel was nominated by the Governor to be Prosecutor of Somerset. NORTH HUDSON NEWS. Jefferson’s Birthday Celebrated—A Sad Story From. Union Hill. The 146tli anniversary of the birth of Thomas Jefferson, was appro priately commemorated last evening by the Jefferson Club, of West Hobo ken, at Ruth’s Hall, Union Hill. Though the audience was not as large as had been expected, what it lacked in numbers it made up in en thusiasm. After a baritone solo had been given by Mr. Charles Kogge, and little Ger tie Koch had recited, Edmund Koch introduced Counsellor George L. Rec ord, the speaker of the evening. Mr. Record touched briefly on the prominent features of Jefferson’s char acter and drew a powerful contrast be tween the times of the great Democrat and the present. H is reference to the labor question, and the growing snob bishness of our aristocracy were loudly applauded. A vote of thanks rewarded Mr. Rec ord for his speech. A reception concluded the evening’s entertainment. In the audience were Collector Con lin and Aldermen Nolan and Finne gan, of West Hoboken, and Alderman Merritt, of Union Hill. The Jefferson Club will hold its meetings every Friday evening, at Hennig’s Hall, and strive by debat ing the principles of Jefferson to stimulate the Democratic spirit of North Hudson. A Mother's Grief. In the early part of last February, Mrs. Johns, of No. 23 Garden street, Union Hill, had her seventeen-year old-boy eoinmitted to Snake Hill as an incorrigible character. The lad is now dying, on the Hill, of typhoid fever and the mother Is heartbroken at her inability to get him taken home. North Hudson Notes. The Weehawken Democrats will nominate their local ticket next Sat urday evening at Murray’s Hall. Among the selections that will be rendered by the Monastery choir at their coming concert will be the “Hal lelujah Chorus” from the “Messiah,” and “Unfold, Ye Portals Everlasting,” from Gounod’s “Redemption.” The Democratic Nominating Com mittees’ Sub Committee on Finance met last evening in Dexheimer’s Hall, West Hoboken. The young Republicans of Union Hill have elected William Hazzard, Richard Sheldon, Louis Lindermann and George Collmer to represent them at the Conference Convention, at WaaA Casino, next Saturday evening.

Second Race-Prodigal, Lottery. Third Race-St. Elmo, Pat Daly. Fourth Race-Addison, Mist. Fifth Race—Tiburon, Now Then. _ Those who saw Andy McCarthy’s ride on Fountain yesterday declared they had never before witnessed so desperate an attempt of a jockey, and his praises were sung loudly. In the first place he jumped away like a flash at the post, and although tiring badly at the finish, Me Carthy pumped every bit oi speea out, just securing the verdict. A good day’s sport was enjoyed in spite of threatening weather. The track was lumpy and somewhat holding. There was one little drawback to the sport, two favorites being scratched at the last mo ment in two of the races—Howerson for the second and Speedwest for the third. The first was scratched because the boy sent to ride did not suit the judges, while Speedwest’s owner could not secure a boy at the proper weight. There have been several disputes be tween the bookmakers and betting public of late, and the Executive Committee has appointed John Tully, representing the bookmakers, and Judge Burke, the racing interest. These two gentlemen will choose a third, and to that committee all future betting disputes will be submitted.

John Dueberry, a truck driver, stopped to have one of his horses shod at Patrick Liless’ blacksmith shop on Grand street yesterday afternoon. Picking up one of the old shoes he threw it out of the shop. Mrs. Kips, of No. 134 Union street, was pussing by and the shoe struck her vio lently on the forehead. She went immedi ately to the Third Precinct Police Station, where her head was bandaged. Mrs. Kips refused to make a charge against Dueberry, who hud followed her, saying that it was merely an accident. Dueberry, who seemed very sorry about it, was dis charged. __ The Boy Was Out Bate.
