VOL. 1, NO. Isa JERSEY CITY, TUESDAY. AUGUST 6. 1889. PRICE TWO CENTS.
i WHAT'S ITS GAME ? Is tlie New Committee Gun ning for Anybody in Particular? CORRUPTION, SAYS MR. SHEERAN. Chairman Stuhr Savs the Delegates Will Re Recognized at the Con vention. Some people are wondering what part the new County Committee in the Demo cratic party intends to play this fall; what its object of existence Is, and for whose especial benefit or injury it sprung Itself into life. I saw Counsellor William S. Stuhr, the committee’s chairman, at his office in Ho* boken this morning. He is confident that the delegates of the new committee will be recognized at the State Conven tion. “But suppose, Mr. Stuhr, that your del gates are not recognized, what then?” "Oh, there is no danger of our delegates being left out in the cold. Every fair minded man at the convention will say that our demands ought to be acceded to. What these demands will be it is not for me to say.” “Some Jersey City people, however, Imagine that your delegates will not be recognized,” 1 continued. “Has your organization made up its mind as to what course it should pursue iu case your dele gates are not recognized?” “I must decline to say what we should do in that event,” replied Mr. Stuhr. "We propose to be treated fairly, and if that is not done these other gentlemen wiU have to take the responsibility. Our committee is iu earnest, 1 can assure you, aud means business all the way through. Our organ ization has come to stay. As we stated in our manifesto, we desire in the first place to have tair primaries. In the next place, we want honest conventions and a pure ballot box. The only objection certain people have to us is that we are too de cent, but if it is a crime to be decent, then I am willing to be considered guilty of such a crime.” “Then you are pretty sure that the con vention will listen to your delegates?” “Yes, sir, aud if it does not, we have men in our organization that might prob ably advise us to bolt the nomination for Governor.” a rtfiiTT mrt “purvrTPT.vft ” “You see,” continued Mr. Stuhr, “all so-called independent movements that ft have heretofore been gotten up in this county have been gotten up principally by disappointed men. The men who got up these organizations did so for personal interests or friendships. We are today fighting for principles and not men. “I can say this for the new Democratic Committee that there has not been one single name mentioned among us for any office whatsoever. The question as to whether tills man or tnhat man should be endorsed for Governor or for Senator, or for any other office has never come before i us. It is with us a fight for principles.” l Mr. Stuhr was altogether nou-com ’ mittal as to whether the new committee delegates would support Abbett or Young. *' PATRICK SHEEHAN’S VIEWS. It struck me that Patrick Sheeran * might know all about the matter, so I called on him last night and found him in the company of Patrick Condon, the well known contractor. He has been actively engaged in politics here for forty years, and, aside from holding several local of fices, he has represented^ his district in the Assembly. He is a member of the new County Committee, and an ardent sup pouter of the movement. “What does the committee intend to do this fall?” I asked. “We intend to nominate a straight ticket for every county and State office except that of Governor, and I can’t say what will be done in regard to that office until after the convention is held.” "Will you send delegates there?” “Certainly we will.” “But I am told they will not be recog nized, and if this ls true what effect will it have on the Gubernatorial contest?” “I cannot say until after the delegates we send are refused recognition.” "Is the new County Committee in the interest of Mr. E. F. C. Young or of ex Governor Abbett?” “I can’t talk about this until the con vention is held.” Then 1 usked the ex-Assemblyman if the object of t’he committee was to defeat County Clerk Dennis McLaughlin, and he replied ambiguously:—“1 don’t say that it “CORRUPTION!” “Well, who or what is the attacked, ! then?” “Corruption!” thundered Mr.Sheeran in ■ a manner that indicated pistols and cof fee. “The county is today more corrupt than ever before, and it will never be bet ter so long as Bob Davis and his crowd run it. I have been in politics forty years and have not lived in all that time more than two blocks from my present home, 1 and people know me and they know what I say to be true. Look at the last Legis lature! Was ever anything more cor rupts' Five of the six Assemblymen from this city voted themselves into office after declaring that they would not accept it., i So did the Senator. Why, who would not fight such a crowd?” “Then,” I interpolated, “the fight is against Bob Davis as well as Dennis Mc Laughlin aud the candidate for Governor unless you are represented as delegates?’1 “I don’t say that it is,” lie replied! L “WUl the new committee support for ■ renomination the present county officers?” “No, sir; they will have their own can didates, and you may say our only desire is to purify our politics.” More than this Mr. Sheeran would not IP say. k MR. CRONAN DIDN’T KNOW. Ex-Sheriff Cronan said he really did not know the object of the organization of a new County Committee nor wliat would be done, although he is one of the mem bers ot the Advisory Committee. He did not take an active interest in it, for if so, people would claim it to be the action of a disappointed office holder. He was con fident that the new committee would be successful in its object, but just what that was he did not know. The ex-Sheriff said that beyond a doubt del> gates would make their choice from the candidates, but at this time he could not say who it ■would be. When I asked him if the object of the committee was not to directly oppose the re-election of Denny McLaughlin, he re glied significantly:—“Is McLaughlin any etter than any one else to be attacked?” 1 next asked him if the candidate for Governor would be supported by the new County Committee if its delegates were not recognized, and ne answered:—“I don’t want to say whether he will or not. The time to decide that ouestlon is when the delegates are refused admission and recognition.” _ The Third District Club Goes Over. ■ Mr. William Herbert requests The ■ Jersey City News to say that the Third District Democratic Club has decided to adopt the constitution aud by-laws of the L new County Committee. Mr. Klernan’s Good Resolution. James Kiernan, who keeps a liquor saloon on Grand street, near Henderson, ■ banded Clerk Norton a 15 bill this morn ing in Justice Stilsing’s Court with the I — after this. It costs me f5 every time I go out,” Mr. Kiernan started out yesterday afternoon to enjoy himsell. He was ex ceedingly rejoiced when he struck the ten cent circus and began to be attentive to the bewitching damsel who sells the tickets. The young lady objected and Mr. Kiernan was arrested. THE SEWS OF HOBOKEN. How the City Will Have to Pay for a Stolen Horse. Some enterprising Brooklyn youths stole a horse, wagon and harness about two weeks ago from three different places in the city of churches. This morning Philip Fitzpatrick, P. J. Balfe and John A. Nolan, all of Brooklyn, were arrested in Hoboken, on suspicion of being the thieves. John Driscoll, of No. 20 North Oxford street, Brooklyn, was the complainant uguiust them for stealing his horse. The only evidence against the prisoners was that they happened to be this morning in the neighborhood of the Bade farm at Homestead, where the stolen horse was stabled. They were discharged. The stolen horse, which was put this morning in Reilly’s stable, on Washington street, Hoboken, pending the examination of the prisoners, was kicked by another animal, had its leg broken, and will have to be shot. The city must compensate Mr. Driscoll. Odd Fellows' News. Mayor August Grassman, of Hoboken, has been nominated by 104 Odd Fellow Lodges for re-election as the Grand Repre sentative of New Jersey to the Sovereign Lodge, which will meet in October.

William Sheiner, of Port Jervis, was sunning himself on the Hoboken City Hall steps this morning, when Jacob Cohen, of No. 156 Broadway, New York, accused him of not paying for the clothes he (Sheiner) had on his back. It ap pears that Sheiner had purchased the clothes from Jacob on the installment plan, but paid only one installment. Jacob had him arrested for obtaining goods by false pretences, but neither the Recorder nor auv Justice in the city would hold the Hebrew’s bad customer. Hoboken Notes.

How the Trick Was Turned That Won Two Hundred Thousand Hollars. Pu Cable to the United Press. London, August 6, 1889.—The young woman arrested by order of the Austrian government recently, in connection with the $>200,000 lottery swindle, has made a full confession of her share in the business, and it turns out that her little sou, whom she persuaded the lottery officials to employ in drawing the numbers, is a girl of twelve. This girl had the winning numbers in her hand, which she pretended to draw from the glass urn, and did her share of the work so expertly that no one among the large audience present suspected it. It was the business of the official in charge to examine the numbers left in the urn after the drawing, and if this had been done, of course the fraud would have been promptly discovered. The woman’s confession does not in VOiVe LX1X5 UXX1U1UX, Ullb lie 1» Bllll UUULT UX rest, and it can scarcely be doubted that lie had a guilty knowledge of the fraud. The press throughout Germany is en gaged in a lively agitation for reform in the penal institutions of the Empire, which it is charged are run independently and without any logical or coherent sys tem for the treatment of law breakers. Many of the newapapers urge that Ger many, in her penal legislation, and in the management of her penal institutions, lias never recognized auy principle but that of terrorizing offenders, whereas the march of progress has brought with it, in other countries, a recognition of the more enlightened idea of the reform of the criminal. America is frequently pointed to as having demonstrated some valuable truths and the successful results attained by the Reformatory in Elmira, New York, are cited in many editorials as an illustration of wlmt German penal insti tutions should strive to emulate. Two Excursion Parties. Two excursion parties arrived at the Erie Bepot this morning, one under the auspices of the Catholic Church of Bloomileld, which boarded an excursion barge and sailed for Mount Pleasant Grove; the other, numbering about three hundred, from Sufferns and vicinity, went to Rockaway. The latter party arrived at nine o’clock, but it was almost noon before the steamer Grand Republic, which was to carry them, arrived. The dejected excursion ists were about to return home when the tidings came that the bout was on her way from Brooklyn. Accuse Tlieir Servant of Theft. Mary Cardiff, of No. 214 Wayne street, was held by Justice Stilsing, this morn ing, for larceny. About a month ago she secured employment in the family of James Eeo, of No. 214 Wayne street. After she had been there some time the family began to miss articles of clothing and sheets. Their suspicions fell upon Mary and yesterday Detective Dalton arrested her at her home. A num ber of pawn tickets, calling for some of the stolen articles, were found. Iii Secret SesHlon. The commissioners appointed to con demn the lands through the Currie estate desired by the Waverly and New York Bay Railroad, held u secret session this morning in the Chan cery Chambers. They adjourned at one o’clock until tomorrow afternoon, before arriving at a decision. R is thought that they will make an award tomorrow. Chief Gall Sett lei* the Sioux Treaty. Standing Rock Agency, Dak., August B, 1889.—Chief Gall, who heretofore has been most bitterly opposed to the Sioux treaty, signed yesterday morning. The Blackfeet and Upper and Lower Yanktonians followed Gall and signed with a rapidity and eager ness that proved the wonderful influence of that powerful chief. All day the Indians were signing, and last night the 11,000,000 acres of land to which the whites have been looking longingly for so many years are theirs. The commission ers are rejoiced over their success, and will leave today. ME. DRACHMAN EJECTED. Over Zeal for a Friend Uronght Him Trouble in tlio Poliee Court. John J.

Halligan said that he had ordered Ber ger to keep out of the house which he owned, as his tenants had camplained of the uuisance these peddlers have become. Berger refused and became impudent. Halligan attempted to put him out; he resisted and it was this struggle which the policeman saw. Berger was represented by Mr. Drach man, a Newark avenue notion dealer, who wanted to speak for him, as he could not speak English. Mr. Drachman harangued the Court at length as to what it should do under the circumstances, for which J ustice Stilsing thanked him ironically and then held both men to bail for the Grand Jury. Mr. Drachman became indignant at this and declared that it was wrong. He then started in to show the Court wherein it erred, when Court OflicerMurray grabbed him by the back of the neck anil the sur plus portion of his trousers and before he could imagine what had seized him he was on the street The Hoiiy Identified. The body of the unknown man taken from the river, near Pier 8 of the Pennsyl vania Railroad docks, yesterday, was identified at Speer’s morgue this morn ing by a sister and friend as Edward M. Scott, of No. 68 Laight street. Neither could account for his drowning. He left his boarding house early Friday morning and no one knew of his whereabouts till notified of the finding of the body, with his name written on a bank book.

IN ITS FINE NEW HOME. tiie new jersey cLi n aud its HANDSOME QUARTERS. .- c Distinguished Names That Are to Be Seen on Its Membership Rolls—The Cosey Cafe Over Which Famous Ca terer Smith from Haiti III o' Presides The New Jersey Club has just got com fortably to rights in its handsome new clubhouse on the corner of Grand aud Greene streets. The building is the Mor ris Canal and Banking Company’s old home. The club purchased it some time ago and has just fitted it np in elegant style for club purposes. The New Jersey Club is the oldest club in the State. Its organization dates back to 1807. General John R. Mullany, a brother ot the late Admiral Mullany, of the United States Navy, was its first presi dent. Among the charter members are such well-known men as Thomas R. Negus, Leon Abbett, John R. McPherson, William F. Taylor, C. W. Purvail, R. M. Jordan, W. H. Gregory, S. B. Bevin, An drew Clerk, Freeman A. Smith aud Jumes B. V reeland, the majority of whom are still leading spirits in the club’s affairs. It has now a membership of one hundred and forty in good standing, and is said to be nearly evenly divided in politics. Mat ters of a partisan nature are not discussed except in private conversation. The pres ent location of the club is exceedingly convenient for business men as a dow n town resort. Many of its members are prominently identified with the Carteret, the Palma, the Jersey City Athletic and the Berkeley. A HANDSOME HOME. The building it now occupies has four stories aud an attic. It is substantially built of brick, with walls more than two feet in thickness. The front is an imita tion of brown stone. The rooms through out have eighteen-foot ceilings aud are elegantly papered, with a decidedly artistic finish. Pendant from the ceilings in ull the rooms are handsome four aud six-globed chandeliers. The floors, ex cept those of the basement, are covered with soft Wilton carpets with unique designs of figures und pleasing tints. Handsome pictures and rare paintings adorn the interior walls throughout the structure. The dining room and kitchen are located on the third floor. A stairway for servants, shut in by trelliswork, leads to the ground on the outside of the rear walls, and a dumb waiter runs from the basement. There are three large anti elegantly ap pointed card rooms upon the same floor, with folding doors so arranged as to throw the three into one large hall when a big dinner is to be given. A smull private card room is adjacent. To every window on this noor is an iron Balcony, overlook ing two streets, upon which the members can sit and smoke in excessively warm weather. Above,on the fourth floor,are four large and handsomely appointed bed rooms. There are also excellent bat hing facilities. Spacious reception parlors are located on the second floor. They are equipped with all essentials to modem luxury and ease. The trout of the basement is util ized as a billiard hall. It contains two handsome tables, around which, at a con venient distance, stand a number of high perched cane-seat chuirs with arms. The walls are embellished with sport ing pictures and banners. THE CAFE AND THE CATERER. The cafe is in the rear of the basement. Its rosewood mantle with a centre-piece of red plate glass is a gem. The fire-place beneath is fuced with English tiles and on the tiled heurtli rests a great pair of old fashioned English brass fire dogs. This unique and beautiful piece of decor ation was presented to the club by the president. Colonel W. F. Taylor, whose efforts have contributed much toward placing the club in its present high social position among the clubs of Jersey City. The cafe is also supplied with four rose wood tables with \ ieuna chairs. In this room the old convivial spirits of the club occasionally love to gather in winter and tell stories. Between the cafe and the billiard room is the bar, stocked with choicest brands of imported and domestic wines and liquors. The caterer of the club is Stephen Smith, a good-looking, intelligent old colored gentleman “from Baltimo’, sah!” who, with his family and three "spick and span” colored youths from the South, attends to the wants of the club’s mem bers. The top of Mr. Smith’s head is as bald as a polished, copper disc, but, phrenologically speaking, it is splendidly developed, and his flowing, silky white whiskers are a marvel. Mr. Smith will soon tuke a vacation and visit his “old gal in Baltimo’ his aged mother. DISTINGUISHED MEMBERS. The present officers of the Xew Jersey Club are:—Colonel W. F. Taylor, presi dent: John L). Frazer, vice president: ex Sheriff C. J. Cronau, treusurer; George H. Lary, secretary. These, together with Messrs. A. Barricklo, Thomas K. Negus, A. A. Bedell, J. R.

It was found that he was intoxicated, and his conspiracy tale would not hold water. Unjustly Imprisoned. Patrick O’Neill, the boy who wns before Justice Stilsing yesterday on complaint of his father, wns discharged this morn ing by the Justice with the remark that it was a shame that he was locked up at all. His father was very anxious to huve him railroaded to jail yes terday, and declared that he had ruined his house with bricks. Today he did not appeur. __ Caught lletnom the Bumpers.

Justice Weed issued a warrant this morning fori the arrest of James Me ~V“ ~ Derraott obtained permission from Andrew Behrens, who keeps ft saloon next to his house, to go through the yard. Mc Dermott had scarcely started toward the rear of the house when Behrens heard his wife scream. He ran to where she was and she told him that McDermott had insulted her. Behrens put McDermott out of the house, but he returned in a few minutes, having on what he called his lighting clothes, and assaulted Behrens. RAH,ROAD GOSSIP. Mileage of Car Wheels—Conductor Dnrl ing’s Dismissal. “Do you know,” said a gentleman in a Pennsylvania Railroad car the other day, ‘‘that each car wheel is expected to do a certain amount of travel, and then, no matter how good its condition may be, it is cast aside. After covering a certain mileage the wheels become brittle and liable to break.” Here’s a point for travellers on the Morris and Essex Railroad. The fare from Hoboken to Newark is fifteen cents, and from Newark to Orange ten cents, making the total cost of the ride from Hoboken to Orange twenty-five cents. But if you step to the ticket window in Hoboken and ask for a ticket to Orange, the man inside will not furnish it to you for less than thirty cents. Walter Durling, one of the old con ductors of the New Jersey Central Rail road who were discharged recently by the new management of the road, is now run ning as rear brakeman on the Somerville way and express trains. The company furnished Walter with employment rather than tell him the reasons tor his discharge when ho demanded to know them. Probably no railroad in the country handles so many trains, within certain hours, as the New Jersey Central. Over four hundred trains of all classes pass the Communipaw station daily. This in cludes the Newark and New York traius, thut branch leaving the main line just west of the station. Many of these, in fact most of them, are local passengers and freight traius. Governor Lowry, of Mississippi, has caused the arrest of Superintendent E. L. Tyler, of the Queen and Crescent Rail road, for violating the laws of Mississippi in retrard to the Sullivan-Kilraiu prize fight. The Swiftest Carrier Pigeons. Lowell, Mass., August 6, 1S89.—Valky rie and Minerva, two of the homing pigeons sent from here to General Gree ley, Washington, were liberated there at fifteen minutes uast eicht Sunday morn iug. In spite of bud weather both birds arrived home yesterday morning. Papoose, the other Lowell bird, has not yet been heard from. The two birds will be sent to Liberty, Va., 615 miles, on or about the 16th or 18th. The Lowell Homing Club also had birds arrived yesterdriy. Liberated by Samuel Taylor at Baltimore at half-past eight a. m, Sunday, Clingstone and Ormehde arrive first, having flown 340 miles in nine hours and a half. Tom Hunt and Damon, the other two birds, arrived three hours later. The time is regarded as the best ever made in this country. PT' * Died of Hydrophobia. Randolph, Mass., August 6,1889.—Mary E. Rooney, aged twelve, the adopted daughter of William Rooney, of Wey mouth, died here yesterday of hydropho bia. On June 10 she was bit ten in the wrist' by a brin dle bulldog owned by Mrs. B. O’Connor. The wound was cauterized fifteen minutes later. On August 1 the girl was frightened by a large dog which jumped at her. She ran toward the house barking like a dog. This lasted only a few minutes, but on August 3 she began frothing at the mouth, and from that time grew rapidly worse until the time of her death. The dog which bit her ufterward bit a boy named Hilton, and then bit fif teen other dogs. These dogs have all been killed by order of the Selectmen. Grand Army Men to Be Disciplined. Kansas City, Mo., August 6, 1889.— Commander-in-Chief Warren, of the Grand Army, proposes to discipline the Department Commanders who issued or ders to subordinate posts to stay away from the Milwaukee Encampment. Hav ing issued orders to Department Com manders over a month ago to use tlieir ef forts in making the encampment a suc cess, he considers their later orders to the posts a flagrant breach of discipline, and will not allow it to pass unnoticed. The matter will be taken lip by the Coun cil of Administration at Milwaukee. Bricklayers Picnicking. The members of Bricklayers’ Union, No. 1, held an enjoyable family picnic in Caledonian Park yesterday. In the even ing they were joined by several hundred young people, who danced merrily in the big pavilion. Prof. Holden’s orchestra furnished the music. Alonzo L. Crane was floor manager.

She was twentyt-wo years younger than the Mar echal and was, next to the Empress Eugenie, the most brilliant social figure of the Empire uud the most Deautiful woman in France. She married General Canrobert after his distinguished career in the Crimea and shared with him the honors of the Governorship of Poris. Mr*. Maybilck’tt Hopes. By Cable to the United Press. Liverpool, Aug. 8. 1889.—Immediately after the opening of Court this morning the judge began his charge to the jury, and before night Mrs. Maybrick will know her fat*. The judge seems inclined to give the prisoner the benefit of every doubt, and his remarks, in the main, are strongly favorable to her. Smith Mcrseleg in Limbo Again. Smith Merseles, a “regular old bum” who has annoyed the housekeepers in certain localities in the vicinity of Bergen Hall by disgraceful behavior, was “yanked up” yesterday by Patrolman Niebank.

SCHLACHTER VS. CHAFFANJON. Conflicting Leases Are the Canse o the Trouble—The Doors Closed Pending Settlement. ; Closed • : By Order of 1 : C. Chaffanjon, Lessee. : That is the notice tacked on the door of :he large silk mill on South street. It was put on yesterday. The hands em ployed directly or indirectly by Julius Schlachter, an Importer, at No. 457 Broome street, New York, were surprised on their arrival at the main entrance yes" terday to find that they were not to bo admitted. Schlachter had possession on Saturday, but lost It on Sunday. He had fortified the place, and had two watch men on guard to admit none but friends. The foes were the agents of Chaffanjon. The watchmen were induced to capitu late. The story in circulation in the vicinity of the mill is that they were persuaded to visit a neighboring saloon and wet their whistles. Rumor has it that the enemy, dur ing the temporary absence of the two guardsmen, clambered through a window and seized the building for Mr. Chaffan jon. The watchmen who had been in pos session felt better as they started to re turn, but felt worse when they reached the mill. Their occupation was gone. The rivals would not admit them. Mr. Schlachter was notified of the freez ing out, and he wired the police from his Brooklyn home to protect his men from Intruders when they knocked for admit tance yesterday. The police did not inter fere when they learned it was a question as to who was properly in charge. The dispute ’is over the lease or two leases. The principals decline to talk, and all that could be learned was gleaned from those in the vicinity of the mill, wnu ueu fcuiue very queer htunes. Mr. Claude Chaffanjon was at one time sole owner of the monster building or it was supposed that he owned it all. It was a busy factory and was crowded with silk makers. Five hundred, it is said, Were employed in the mill. The owner was quoted as a millionaire. He had be gun as a poor silk weaver. It is said that he had a foster daughter who is now Mrs. George Mottin. The latter was made a full fledged part ner and assumed the management. About a year ago the firm suddenly collapsed. The mill was taken in charge by Messrs. Megroz, Portier, Gosset & Co., of New York, who held a chattel mortgage ex ecuted by Chaffanjon & Mottin. The mortgage was for $100,000. Chaffanjon went to Europe; He returned with s heavy purse it is said. The old firm was dissolved aud a stock company organized with Claude Chaffanjon, Claude Bandoin. George Chardey and Thomas McEwan, Jr„ as the incorporators. The title is tha Chaffanjon Silk Company. The capital stock is $10,000, with $3,000 paid. Chardey, whose address is the same as Chaffanjon’s, No. 175 South street, has thirty shares, the others five shares each. They opened a mill at No. 403 East Ninty flrst street, New York, but the mortgagees interfered and there is a clash there. Sclilachter, who disputes Chaffanjon’s right to enter the mill in this city, is now a member of the firm who held the big chattel morgage. Under what authority or from what source the lease issued is a profound mystery. It will be explained undoubtedly in court. The mill is filled with valuable machinery. ME BRAKE CAUGHT HIS COAT.
