REGULAR DEMOCRATIC NOMINATIONS. For Governor, LEON ABBETT, Cant and False Pretence. There is an amusing controversy go ing on between Mr. Henry A. Potter, of Newark, and the editor of the Sun, Mr. Potter was the delegate to the Republican convention -who, on be. half of the Essex county delegates, rose In his place and repudiated the local option idea as a feature of the party policy. He is just at present virtuously indignant because the Sun has used some plain English about the platform. In the course of that remarkable document the declaraticn occurs that the Republican party "stands for purity, for temperance, and for home." The Sun very justly re. marked that the phrase was simple cant and had no true meaning what. Thereupon Mr. Potter proteste, —it seems to be his specialty,—lie says: "If an honest plain statement on the part of the Republicans of New Jer sey that they believe in temperance, and pledge themselves to enact such laws as will help this cause, and also an emphatic statement on the part of the Republicans of Essex county that they believe that the cause of temper, ance will bo best served by the en actment of a high license law, is hum bug, then your editorial, 'Humbug Across the North River,' is a fair criticism on the action of the New Jersey Republican Convention. Other wise it is unjust, and a mistatement of facts." Mr. Potter was not wise. It is fool ish to play with a trip hammer or a buzz saw. You always get the worst of it. The in proved to be both trip hammer and buzz saw combined, and there is nothing left of Mr. Potter. This is the way the Sun did it:— We confess that we don't quite understand what it is that Mr. Potter complains of. The Trenton platform declared that the Republican party "stands for purity, for temperance and for home.11 This is pure cant, and it means nothing. The platform further declared that the conven tion "heartily and unqualifiedly endorses the ac tion of the Republican minority in the Legisla ture of 1889 upon all questions of morality and of State and party policy.11 Thereupon Mr. Potter himself arose in behalf of the Essex county dele gates to protest against being committed to the jocal option programme. We considered and still consider the protest as manly and creditable to the Essex delegates, although there is beyond question something very comical in the idea of a body of intelligent, men voting to adopt a platform and at the same time distinctly repudiating its conclusions, and refusing to be bound by them. What fault, then, has Mr. Potter to find with the Sun's remarks on this extraordinary pro ceeding? We have not applied the word hum. hill*. rKr«ntlv nr indirectlv. to the miii-ω nf tlm Essex county delegates. Heaven forbid! The only trouble about the Sun's criticisms is that they did not go far enough. It was not enough to say that one portion of the platform was cant and meant nothing. The charge should have been that the whole plat form was cant and meant nothing. Even then enough would not have been said. The truth is the platform was intehded to mean nothing. It was cant because it was intentionally empty, vague, uncertain so that every man might interpret it for him self as he pleased, and for hie neighbor in the manner best calculated to bamboozle that worthy citizen. Mr. Potter and the Essex men come the nearest to honesty in the whole transaction. They made a fair effort to give the thing a meaning. But the rest of the party fell away from them in silence and left them standing alone. Today, through the enterprise of Thk Jersey Citt News, new light is thrown upon the situation. It haa been ascertained, either that General Grubb himself does not know what the platform means, or is designed to mean, or else he is afraid to make hi8 understanding of it public. Our special correspondent called on hi in at his home at Edgewater Parkt and we desire to thank General Grubb for the courteous manner in which our correspondent was received. But General Grubb had really no thing to say any more than the platform had. The correspondent asked him ■what he understood by the Republi can liquor plank. Here is his reply:— "The party has expressed its will" ingness to leave that matter with the people aud will follow whatever course the people shall docide will be the best for the eradication of intem perance." Neither General Grubb's best friend nor the most ardent Republican in the State can claim that this utter ance in any way strengthens the Re publican position. If anything it weakens it, for General Grubb's re mark interpreted amounts to this:— The Republican party has no policy upon the liqnor question at all, but it will do anything the people like, here after. Ypîtutîtiav wnu a VflPV had daV for meetings. There was something in the atmospheric conditions or the subtle psychical influences which worked against the securing of quor ums. The Jeffersonian joint session had an attendance of three; the Free holders' Committee on County Insti tutions turned up the same number; and the new Democratic club, includ ing Mike O'Mara, Billy German and the janitor of Roche's Hall, had the same fatal number at its councils. Improving Transit. Facilities. The one thing that is necessary to the speedy growth of this city is rapid transit; with that there is no limit to the possibilities of the Hill district. Everything which tends to Improve facilities for travel tends to develop the city, enhance taxable values, in crease the annual income of the govern" ment, and hasten public improvements of every sort. It is, therefore, the duty of private citizens and public officials to aid to the fullest extent all enterprises look, ing to the desired end, and when established companies, already con ducting lucrative operations undertake to make improvements' they are deserving of even more credit and more cor dial assistance than new concerns. It is too often the case that estab lished corporations are rather in clined to stand in the way of progress than to aid it. Progress, they are often so narrow as to think, means new expense without, new profit. The Jersey City and Bergen Rail way Company is an honorable excep. tion to this rule. It is about to estab. lish a notable reform in the matter of traction, at its own instance, and at a time when it is pressed by no immediate danger of competition. We are glad that the company has been met in a liberal spirit by the city authorities, and we trust the en terprise shown will be rewarded with both an increase of business and a re .1 a: at.,, . a.» " —Ο·" X ^ w transporting passengers. A Nkwark avenue locksmith wouldn't trust the county for two keys! Well, who can blame himi The workman is worthy of his hire, even when he toils for Hudson county, and if the Freeholders absorb and squander the hire who will do the work? But why weren't there any duplicate keys for those cells? It is scandalous mismanagement whicli permits such an accident to happen as that described in Thk Jkr sky City News today, whereby all the prisoners in a corridor of the penitentiary were locked in so tightly that not even the keeper could let them out. It might have been neces sary to let those men out very sud denly in case of fire, and if such an emergency had arisen what a scene there would have been!

Λ QUEER WATCH STORY I'OOT.ISIl SER VA \T MAIDS TOOK i: 1'OR Λ FAMILIAR SPlIlIT. Color Plays an Important Part 111 Oui Lives—Λ Pathetic Doff Story— A Itoinnu Girl and Her Doll—Λ Hint ο a Cowing Fail. For years old Dr. Allan, the Scottisl physician, was suspocted of being a wiz ard, an opinion which was considered al but confirmed when, in 1(530, he providec ι himself with a silver watch of the régula tion size and style. Chancing to stop with a neighbor over night and it beinj somewhat cold, he laid the watch neai hie body and covered it with the bet j quilts so that the chilly weather would nol ! affect the works. Next morning he arost I rather abruptly and left the house with ! out removing the treasure from its cozj nest in the bed. In ridding up the room the servant dis covered "the infernal chattering thing,? and immediately concluded that it rnusl De the old doctor's "familiar spirit," con elusions which were hardly arrived at be fore she had lied wildly from the room, Other servants were called and the whole array charged the "chattering tiling" in the bed. Clubs and tongs were freely used, but the case was strong and the thing still chattered defiantly. One of the girls, more courageous than the others, finally agreed that she would take the tongs aud carry the thing to the moat and drown it, a proceeding fraught with I danger, but at last decided upon. The omers lOliuwiia in a respecuiuie ui*buui/c with hoes, clubs and shovels, with which they proposed to pounce on the thing phould it attack the heroic girl. When the old doctor returned for His wateli he was informed of what had beeu doue, one of the servants leading tlie way to where the thing had been drowned. It was fouud hangiug on a bush on the bank of the moat. The failure to beat or drown the thing to death fully convinced the servants that it was in reality the old wizard's spirit, and they could not be per suaded to touch it. This story is related simply to show what rarities watches must have been oven at that late period of the seventeenth century. In 17C» one of the admirers of George II. caused to be made for that monarch a watch which was a marvel in its way. It had a calendar hand which pointed to the days of the month and the year. Instead of making a revolution every month, like the calendar watches of today, it took the whole 305 days to get once around. The dial plate was only two inches in diameter, therefore the lig ures must have been very minute, other wise the 305 numerals could not have beeu arranged around the border. The annual dial calendar was but one of a number of extras with which this watch was provided. Λ movable diamond performed diurnal revolutious as régulai as did the great orb after which it was modelled; it struck the hours, the hall hours and the quarters, while an insidt dial plate revolved in a manner clearlj exhibiting the variations of the seasons. The English House of Commons, fol lowing a suggestion of Sir Isaac Newton appointed a committee June 11, 1714, witt power to offer a reward of £20,000 to an} one who would invent an accurate time keeper for use at sea in determing longi tude. After many years of labor aui study the invention was announced a: perfected. However, the inventor, oik John Harrison, did not receive the re ward for his labor until September 18 1764. Keyiess watches have been known foi the uast 100 years, but not until withii the past twenty-live have they come intt general use. It would take columns t< enumerate all tne dainty and wonderfu little timepieces that have been mad< duriug the past 400 years. They havi been made not larger than peas and se in rings for physicians to facilitate th< counting of the pulse. They have beei fixed in bracelets, brooches, eye glasses tops of umbrella handles and e'veu on tin ends of lead pencils, where they occup; the same position as the rubber on thi average Faber. in 1883 a watchmaker of Dresden ex hibited a watch made entirely of naper The paper was chemically prepared am the maker claimed that it would be eu serviceable as if made of the materia Λ î„ τ n<m.l The same year, at a fair held at Wor cestershire, England, Crowthers Bros. iS Co. exhibited one made entirely of iron. An ingenious prisoner at Kariaus, Bo hernia, recently constructed a watch eight centimeters in diameter, with n< other tools or material except twi needles, a spool of thread, a newspape and some rye straw. The wheels, posti and cogs are all made of the rye straw which, it is well known, is quite coarsi anil tough. It runs six hours withou winding and keeps good time. It is nov in possession ot the Prefect of Kariaus why considers it the greatest marvel ο the nineteenth century. The most ingenious, perfect and com plex watch ever manufactured was sen out from the works of Patch, Pliillippe i Co., of Geneva, Switzerland, in July, 1677 and is now in the possession of Baroi Nicholas. It is what is known as the full sized "hunter." On one side there is j dial of the regulation kind, exhibitinj the hour, minute and second hands, alsi an iudependeutchronographiuhand whicl marks the iiftlis of seconds. The sami dial has repeating mechanism, whici strikes the hours, quarters and minutes The opposite dial has hands pointing ti the months, weeks and days. Anothe large central hand on this dial, if set a the beginning of each year, correctl; points to all moon phases and also acte a a perpetual calendar. It is so constructei as to admit of its keeping two ditt'eren times, say standard on one side and sui time ou the other.—St. Louis licpabllc. Color lltileg Us All. Did you ever think what a mighty par color has to play in this world of ours Try to picture to your mind if you can ; world devoid of color. How cold am barren and dreary everything would be IIow incomplete, with nowhere to tun our weary eyes for relief. Some one lias said:—"Color is to theey what music is to the ear—charming am soothing. Beautiful is it when it flashe forth from gems; beautiful, too, when i blends in the lmrmouious combinations ο η picture. wny, wien, suouiu 11. noiu potent for good or evil in a lmly's dress All art, all nature recognizes its powei and why should not women, too* Wonderfully true, indeed. Color plays part in woman's kingdom next to nothin else. It lies within her power to beautif or disfigure with it·, and so much can b clone with it if she will only uee her powe alight. There are times and places for all colors and the little nicotics of perception as t just wlien and where a color should b worn, are what a woman should strive t cultivate to the utmost. How well th artless Josephine know how to use he knowledge of effect of color when eho cur ningly induced her rival in beauty to si upou that traditional green sofa in a blu gown, while she herself was attired i; virgin white. Carefully and well had sh learned her lesson in the great school c color, and doitly she applied it. One late afternoon tiiis summer I sa* a young girl, in a red boating dress, rui down across a lonely sand beach am stand looking out over the sea. An artist seeing her. caught up his brush iu franti haste and made a sketch of her. "It's to good to be lost, that bit of colox·," h said, "the deep blue of the sea, the gra; sky and the tawny sand, with just on bright figure, full of life, to relieve it it's great!" And so it was Leigh Hunt said:—"I never see an ol< woman wearing a scarlet cloak in we weather without blessing her." Color i a sort of life, and when a woman puts ο a bright gown and walks abroad know inglv, with a background of compara tively colorless landscape about her, sh is au artist and knows how to make a effect. The wardrobe of a woman of tact an taste differs aocording to the place whbr she takes up lier abode. She will hav one distinctive outfit for the days by th great, free, breezy ocean, where there ar loug stretches of colorless sand and ee ana sheer gray cliffs rising sombre an sad against the sky, and still another t ■ he worn in the dreamy,voluptuous inlaiv or mountain districts, where the sunshln falls rich and yellow and the whole lan is full of warmth and color.—Oonto • Olobc. Λ Hurt I)og. Early this morning a Bloomfleld avenu horse car going up Broad street ran ove and badly mangled a dirty yellow cur a a point in the street just above Marke street. The car passed on and the Injure dog lay yelping on the rails and writhini in pain. Inside of a minute a big coaci dog, a handsome Newfoundland and ι fiery little Spitz went rushing pell moll fc the scene. When they saw the suffering of the cur they seemed to be overwhelmei with sympathy. Two of them began t lick the mangled limbs and back of th fallen animal, and the third stood look ing on with sympathy expressed in it attitude and face. Pretty soon anothe: car came rolling up Broad street. Th' wouuderl do» still lav on the rails. The three sympathetic dogs plantée themselves squarely between the track as though to protect the cur from furthe injury. The car rolled on, nearer an( nearer, but they did not budge. Severa spectators gathered to see the outcome ο the scene. The driver stopped the cat got oft the platform and pulled the yelp ing dog from the tracks. The injure» beast whined a few times more aud thei straightened out aud died. The othe three dogs held a brief autopsy and thei walked «lowly and soberly away, a: though they were going to a funeral.

Ei quiry of the drivers elicited the fact tha he was a frequent passenger, unaccom panied by his master or members of hi family. His favorite position was wit] his paws on the window sill, like a child looking out. On the day that lie was los it was proven that he had boarded a Mou roe avenue car at Union street, ridden a far as the "four corners," where h changed to a Lake avenue car, wasejectei by the driver at Driving Park avenue fo not paying his fare, was found later unde the seat by the same driver and again pu off, when he was picked up aud returnei to his owner as above ([escribed.

I One may derive a sublime enchanting I foretaste of eternal happiness from court ing in a cottage, as the poets declare, but for pure, unalloyed romance, love in a horse car takes the peach crop. Passen , gers on Greenville car No. 232, from the ferry about half-past eight last evening, . were treated to a pleasant little episode ι that relieved the monotony of the long, weary ride to the Heights. ~ Two buxom maidens boarded the car at ' the ferry and fascinated the conductor by " their winniug smiles. This latter indi > vidual was a tall, angular, aesthetic 1 youth with eyeglasses and a four-button " cutaway. A couple of blocks up a plas ! terer, returning home from his day's f labors, got on, took a seat opposite the 1 girls aud then began throwing sheep's c eyes at them.
