For Governor, LEON ABBETT, Republican Cant About Ballot Re form. The Republicans are doing a vast amount of talk of the boomerang kind about ballot reform. They are especially cordial In praising the workingmen for their advocacy of this latest political panacea, and with bland unconcern they denounce those nfamous agencies which have rend ered reform measures necessary. The New York Press, an obscure paper, printed in the interest and with the money of the Piatt ring, is particular ly virtuous, and this morning had a most edifying homily upon the cor ruption of the franchise with money and the Intimidation of poor depend ent voters by powerful and unscrupu lous bosses. It will seem to most persons, as it goes ίο us mat me rresx ana nie other organs are heaping up censure iipon the Republican party and its allies in using language of this kind. The labor element in particular is ■well aware of the fact that the Repub lican party is now, and has always been responsible for six-tenths of the corruption and nine-tenths of the intimidation that has degraded elections in this country in the last twenty years. To go no further back than the last campaign, the party heaped condemnation upon itself in the persons of Wanamaker, Dudley, Piatt Quay and the hosts of other corruptionists who raised mil lions of dollars, and expended them directly in the purchase of votes among the lowest and most ignorant classes of the community. The simplest individual in the State of New Jersey knows that all the intimidation in the State is used on the side of Republicanism. The Democrats have no means of couipul Bion applicable to voters, even if they ■were inclined to resort to them. The great bulldozing agencies of the State are the railway companies and other great corporations. These soulless bodies have no oare for the general interests of the State or of the nation. Their one aim is to roll up vast profits l'or themselves, by fair means or foul, above all by defrand ing the public treasury of its just dues, and by robbing the people of lands and franchises at every oppor tunity. The Republican party, embracing such men as General Seweli, Senator Gardner, Garret A. Hobart, Budd Deacon, ex-Senator Griggs, has al ways been the favorite ally of these cormorant organizations. They have made their demands, and the party has found men unscrupulous enough to gratify them. In return, the corporations have year after year forced their dependent employes to bow to the yoke, and march to the polls as slaves, to keep in power the party that was aiding their masters to grind them down and rob them along with the rest of the citizens. Only yesterday the machinery of compulsion was put In operation again. The candidate, Grubb, who is only the mask behind which Sewell, the corporation agent, hides, was paraded about the capitalistic fac tories of Newark and exhibited to the men as the chosen one of their mas ters, for whom they should vote or take the consequences. Was there ever anything more shameless? In the same minute of time the Republican papers howl for ballot reform and the Republican corporations and bosses pass aroun d the word that the laboring men whom they control muet vote as they dic tate, must vote for the party whose policy is to rob them. But we think that in this campaign the sons of toil will' shake off the oppression of years, will vindicate their manhood, and will care for their own interests. Now is the accepted time. The hour is ripe for the over throw of corporate rule in this State, and for the enactment of laws that will prevent its re-establishment. Reform in the tax laws, and reform in the ballot laws will be the reward of a Democratic victory. But the victory of Sewell and his gang means further degradation and disaster to the State and its people. Hardly more than a week ago we called attention to the inauguration of a building boom in the business quarter of this city, One more illus tration is to be found in the project to erect a new building which is on the point of realization by the Title, Guarantee & Trust Company. The new structure wiil be directly opposite toTHK Jersey City News Office, and will be an orna ment to Montgomery street, as well as a marked accession to the business facilities of the city. The city itself is joining the move «ΛΛΠ+ frtw 1ιιιτ1/1ΐη»α ami 11TÛ hope the new police station will prove to be only the pioneer of many needed improvements. Some slanders are so foolish that they carry their own reputation. These are the kind the New York Times is indulging in regarding Sheriff Davis and some of the other Demo cratic leaders in this city and county. It is certainly strange to see a paper, which ■ pretends to advocate honesty and reforms, back ing up "Bill" Kern, C. D. J. Noelke and "Judge" Wankin, and condemn ing the party which is repairing the streets, building new schools and re ducing the tax rate of Jersey City. The retrograde progress of any inci dent as a matter of news value, as conditioned by the frequency of its occurrence, is worthy of study in the daily newspaper. When the first slaughters by "live wire" took place, the papers devoted columns of space with elaborate "display" heads to each event. Now such occurrences get only brief mention, with ordinary "cap" headlines. Floods and disasters have become so "chesnutty" in the last few months that their news value will not be re-established for years. One of the most curious examples of this sort of decadence in news value was the case of the two earthquakes that visited New York within a few months of each other, some two or three years ago. The earlier was given whole pages of matter for several days by all the papers. The second hardly got as many columns as the first did pages. Should Ave have a blizzard this year it will not get half the space last year's did, even though it be twice as severe. AMUSEMENTS. Frederic κ w arete'β visit. Frederick Warde's engagement at the Academy of Musio begins on Mon day evening. He will present three plays during the week. On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and at the matinee on Satur day the play will be D'Ennery's "Mountebank," an interesting play in which pathos and comedy are effectively blended. Mr. Wardo in the title role has ample opportunities fôr the display of his ability, and he has met with great success through out the country. He has competent support, including Miss Stella Rees, Miss Kate Vanderhoff, who dances in charming fashion; Mr. Wilfred Clarke, an excellent comedian; Mr. Clay Clement and Mr. L. F. Rand. Little Gertie Magill, too, should be named among the favorites in the company. The audience at the Wednesday matinee will see Celia Logan's "Gas par Cadol." On Friday evening "Virginius" is the play, and on Satur day evening "Richard III." PERSONALS John Callahan, of the Tin and Sheet Iron Workers of Hudson county, has been made a member of the Committee on Credentials of the New York Central Labor Union as delegate from the Fraternal Association.

Japanning:, Inlaying: and Gilding— Αι Interesting and Touching: Story of Dog's Affection—Thin Night Wear 1 a Mistake. The moulding of paper-mache hav j ing been practised to such nn exten ! that it is possible to produce a fora worthy of preservation, the worke ι will naturally desire to ornament i< j To this end he must first provide him self with black japan varnish, whicl is dark and thick as molasses, copa varnish, japanners' gold size, ordinar; tube oil colors. Brunswick black, golc leaf, silver leaf and bronze powder ο dillerent colors. Gold powder is costly and had better not be indulged in un til after some proficiency in ornamen tation has been gained. It is, how ever, more brilliant and more perma nent than the gold leaf. To the above list may be addec pearl for inlaying if such ornament ii desired. Of these there are thre< sorts used by papier-inache workers White pearl, which is obtained fron the shell of the large pearl musse from which pearl buttons are made This is to be had in large pieces, ani is used where inlaying is to bo done on a large scale. It is the cheapest ο the three, and has less irridesceuc* than the others. Next. js the snail oi ^Scotch pearl, which is quite pinkisl in some lights, and has, besides, ί pleasing variety of color. It comes ir tnirlv Inriw nipces The dearest near used" is balled aurora, which is ob tained from an auriform shell. There a fourth variety, which is very rich ir color, mostly of a greenish hue, but is little used on account of its tendency to unsoundness. The pearls above mentioned may be procured in flakes also in certain stock forms, such ai discs, diamonds, stars, roses, vines, leaves, clovers, bells, etc. The ama teur will doubtless prefer to buy then in these shapes, which by judicious combination may form very pleasing ornamentation. Brushes will be required in anj form of work. A thin sable, an incl long for line lines; a thicker sable, one-half inch long; a camel's hail brush of the same size will be re quired for pencil varnishing; a broad flat camel's liair orush for varnishing and a large round brush for laying or the japan or black varnish. Oui authority, the American Workman, gives some rules for the selection ol brushes which will be found useful not only to papier-mache decorators but to all who use fine brushes. First, hold the brush up against the lighl and press the thumb nail against the bottom of the hairs; this, if the brush is a good one, will cause the hairs tc spread out evenly ami the ends will alike be fine. If many blunt hairs appear reject the brush; if there are only two or three they may be re moved with the points of a sharp scissors. Then wet the brush in water (not in the mouth) and see if it comes to a sharp point. Sometimes a brush otherwise satisfactory will appear to have too fine a point, ow ing to two or three hairs being longei than the others. This defect may be remedied by laying the brush on a flat piece of wood and cutting ofl these hairs with a sharp penknife. Pumice-stone, hard and soft rotten stone und a little olive oil will also be required for polishing, which com plete the listof necessary materials. Japanning is the first process in ornamenting papier-mache, whatevei manner of decorating is to be applied. The article is taken from the oil bath and set to dry. When oil no longei appears on its surface a coating ol japan varnish is brushed over it and placed in the oven to dry. When drj the coating must be to" some exteul removed by scraping with a plane iron drawn backward. This must be done so effectually as to remove the gloss, but still leave enough of the japan to form a groundwork for aftei processes. If pearl inlaying is contemplated the papier-mache is now ready for the first process, but if japanning only is to be done the use of the black var nish must be continued, drying aftei each coat and rubbing down all in equalities of surface with the pumice stone. Three coats are usually suffi cient. To prepare the last coat foi decoration it should receive an extra rubbing with very line pumice-stone. It is then further smoothed with s "bob" made of rag and finely-pow dered pumice-stone applied wet. Aftei this comes a rubbing with wet, crushed rotten-stone, applied with a smallei rag bob, which application must be continued until all scratches have dis appeared. If dead gilding is to be employed the surface is now ready foi it. If, however, bright gilding is to be used the thoroughly smoothed surface has to be polished. This is done by rubbing with the palm of the hand and iinely-powdered dry rotten-stone, and afterward in the same way witl whiting, and just a drop of olive oil after this completes the polishing. This will produce a brilliant jet-black surface, and will be the proper surface for bright gilding. To inlay with pearl the forms are first procured or cut as desired. The pearl cuts easier if soaked in water The danger of breakage is also les sened. Rectangular forms are besl cut with a knife such as shoemaker! use; simple curved forms may be cm with scissors, but for cutting intricate forms a small fret saw must be used To avoid breakage and facilitate pro gress several flakes of pearl are gluec together and all sawed at once. The ilakes are afterward separated bj soaking in hot water. If the stoct forms are used all trouble of cutting is avoided. Very beautiful effects art produced by using these forms te make diaper patterns. The pearl is applied upon a sized surface, ant placed in a warm oven over night; i: any of the pieces are warped 01 sprung when dry work a little paste under the edge and place a weighi upon the piece, but be careful that nc paste is left outside the pearl, as ii would cause the varnish which ii ■Afterward ι applied to · crack. Wher the pearl is fixed in place, a era? of black varnish is bruslieel over all and after drying is rubbed down witl puinice until the pearl is cleared. Thi: operat ion is repeaieu until japan ant pearl present a perfectly level surface Three coats will usually effect this but it depends upon the thickness ο the pearl. When the level surface ii attained it has to be smoothed anc polished as though there were n< pearl. If dead R'old is used it must be ap plied before the final polishing; i bright gold it must be laid afterward When pearl and gold come in close contact the gilding must be don< before the pearl is finished. The fin ishing of the pearl, however, appear: to be next in order. Ii - any little flaw appears in thi J.1 . JllL!t»!MJllgJI!i|jll!J^^^ ilfBJLH·!·.· »·~«Β pearl, or if it has been worn through in the pumicing process, the fault may be repaired by touching it with ■ wliut is called mending color, which is a mixture of flake, white, crimson lake, a little black and a little blue. ' This mixture will also hide joinings 1 in the pearl. If, however, the flaw is » of any appreciable size bits of scrap pearl may be laid on and the . joint concealed with the metiding , color. If there has been an excess of gold ' size some of the pieces may slip from f their places. The only way to rem edy this fault is to cover that part of the pearl which has passed its proper limits with black, and to add ι with the pearl color that which is I missing. If very thin lines of pearl are to ap . pear it will be necessary to cut the strips wider and reduce their apparent Γ width by lines of black puint on either side, or by drawing a black line ■ through the centre. The process of gilding papier-mache will be described in a subsequent is sue.—Philadelphia Record. The Dor Wept Tears. "lie had been owned by the Rev. B. ! C.

"One day, it must have been a year afterward, we had been on a hard campaign against the woodchuck, and I reached home just at sundown. As I went into the house by one door Mr. Phelps entered by another; he had been an intimate friend of my father's and now walked right in with out any ceremony. After greetings by my father and mother, and just as Phelps was seating himself, Carlo came running in without noticing that he was there. 'Why, Carlo,' said Mr. Phelps. The dog stopped, looked, and with a bound was in his old mas ter's lap and lay across his knees mo tionless, with his head hanging down, while tears rolled down from his eyes and dropped on the floor. Well, sir, at seeing the dog weep Phelps himself choked, and the tears came into his eyes. Father he followed suit and I heard something that sounded like a sob from mother."—Forest and Stream. Too Tlilu Nitflit Wear. The conventional linen or airy cot ton night robe is in no small degree responsible for the prevalence of winter colds. Most people sit during the evening in a room heated to seventy-five degrees or upward. They retire to a room perhaps at sixty de grees, divest themselves of their warm garments, put on an airy cotton night robe, get between chilly sheets, shiver until they give out sufficient warmth from their bodies to change the temperature. This sudden change from hot to cold is radically wrong, and a serious contemplation of the fact will show to any sensible person the absurdity of such a custom. Good warm night garments are as essential to good health and comfort as are warm day clothes. Warmer night clothes and fewer bed clothes would be better for both children and adults. Woolen night clothes allow the body to maintain a normal temperature, which is of the greatest importance. In nearly all foreign countries, when a change of garments is made at night, woolen or a mixture of silk and linen or cotton is worn. The back woodsman lies down in his woolen blankets and defies the elements.— , A Low Cost Dress. Today I met a lady friend who is able to buy the handsomest dresses in New York, and I saw that she wore a neat and laflylike gown of dark gray flannel cloth, trimmed with black braid, and made in a neat and simple but very taking style. I fell in love with the dress, and she told me that she had made it herself, and that braid, buttons and material had cost her just $2.00, and she enumerated the articles and I found it so. There are dozens of fall materials that are all wool anil which will make up very pretty suits from 12 to 25 cents per yard. Of course, a dressmaker would have run the price up, but she said that she enjoyed the making of her dress.—Olive Harper. «Japanese Windows. Japanese rooms are lighted, not by glass windows, but by a kind of wooden grating, over which a white paper is pasted on the outside. This paper diffuses the sunlight about the room very pleasantly, but it is not proof against rain; in rainy weather, therefore, the shutters haTe to be put up which are used to close the ve randa and house in the night time, and which are the only doors in a Japanese house that is thought neces sary to furnish with a bolt. As the putting up and taking down of these shutters is a matter demanding some time, it is usual to have a small door made in them which is called "the earthquake door,"to provide means of a quick escape in case of emergency.— Decorator and Furnisher.

Letter Carriers of Long Standing Get Their Reward. Letter carriers and other employees of the Post Office Department were some what interested yesterday by the perusal of a notice posted in the delivery reoms, which read as follows:— NOTICE ! The following carriers Will be excused from doing Sunday duty:—J. B. Farrier, A. Jackson, (i. Λ. Jackson, Ε. B. Jackson and J. H.

Ho will be given a route upon which there is no regular Sunday delivery. Swipes le Heard From. The absent Swipes has been heard from. He disappointed the sporting fraternity by not appearing in this city on the night he was to have met Jack Carey. He went to Waterbury, Conn., with Ed. McDon ald, the Brooklyn pugilist, and was in troduced as Tommy Burke, a pupil. A match was arranged between him and Jack Bayne. The latter trained, but when the pair entered the ring some one in the audience recognized Swipes. That settled the match, as Bayne refused to fight. Swipes is now trying to arrange a match with Sexton, of Hartford.

He Didn't Move Though the Hlg Engine Was Coming Towuril Hiin.\ Jersey City appears to be the haven of refuse for nil persons who are troubled mental disorders. S areely a day passes bnt one of these unfortunates is not found roaming the streets. The latest is Johu Glynn, aged about flfty-flve years, who was before Justice Stilsing this morning. Watchman Patrick Eagan, of the Penn sylvania Hailroad, said that he found Glynn late last night sitting on a track in the company's freight yard, while a big locomotive was rapidly bearing down upon him. He made no attempt to get out of the way of the approaching engine and would probably have been killed had not Eagan dragged him from the track. Eagnn said that the man acted as though he was out of his mind. Glynn told Justice Stilsing that he came from Deer Lodge City, Mont., and arrived in Jersey City yesterday. He left his trunk at a store, the location of which he had forgotten, and he walked all over looking for it until he was so tired he had to sit down. He seemed to have no recollection of having been in the freieht yard, and al though he tallied rationally on some topics his mind would wander. He will be held until means for his safety can be provided. William Π Burner. Furnishing CTndertatter, car liages and cemp chaire to let, 345 Grove street « er eey City, N. J. Telephone call.
