This paper u Democratic in principles end is independent In U» view» on all local (/uestions. Montgomery street between Wash ington and Warren streets is cleaner this morning than we have seen it in years. Quite a hint for the Street and Water Board. When a street gets too dirty—as Montgomery street certainly ■was—just start a Are and burst a few hose. Mr. Herbert Boggs, of Newark, is sitting in a very back seat this morning. If Allan McDermott keeps on writing letters, humbugs will have to emigrate from New Jersey. Governor Hill's Aspirai Ions. Governor Hill by no means has things his own way, even in Albany, and his little Presidential ebullition to which we adverted last week has been very promptly rebuked by the Knp.ni.nn Union, an indenendent Dem ocratic paper of great and growing in fluence. Here is what the Union says :— The electoral votes of New York and Indiana •will be requirnd in 189- for a Democratic victory. The candidate New York will present, because the people demand It, and the politicians will be unable to prevent it, is Grover Cleveland. The issue will be tariff reform. The Vice Presidential candidate will come from Indiana, and lie will sweep the state that is now heavy with Harrison effigy smoke. Of course we are far from giving in our adhesion to all the Union's con clusions. It is liable to be vwy con siderably out. so far as the ticket is concerned. But the snub to Governor Hill is unmistakcable. The fact is that astute politician in getting his grip on the political machinery of his State seems to have estranged the people, and even if he could secure a nom ination it is quite doubtful if he could retain his command of the popular vote. Simultaneously with the Albany stab comes a set-back for Governor Hill from a Western State. Colonel Charles H. Jones, the editor of the St. Louis Republic, gives an inter view to a New York Herald reporter, in which he says:— The nomination of Hill would tend to damp the enthusiasm of the Western Democrats. The regular party men are always loyal, but if Hill were a candidate the Democratic party would Jose its hold on those men who are now wavering between the two parties but who are more in tr\wavr\ t.hft T)pmnrpanv. as the recent p.lfrv tiou in Iowa and Ohio indicated. There lies the danger ia nominating Hill. During tlie time I have lived in the West 1 have never seen the Democrats so confident and so thoroughly satis fied with the issues presented as they are today. There is a growing aggressive feeling. This should be taken account of in selecting a leader In order to preserve that feeling of confidence The leader must be identical with the cause in the minds of the people. *··***♦ "One reason of the antipathy of the Western, democrats to Hill is that they are affirmatively In favor of Cleveland as the leader If the Nomi nating Convention were to be held within the next few months, nothing could prevent Cleve land's nomination. He would be chosen by ac clamation. No other name would be suggested to the Convention. "It is a mistake to assume, as I find some New York leaders assuming, that unless the New York delegation is behind him Cleveland cannot hope for α nomination. I take it that unless the situ ation changes from what it is at present New York will not be the determining factor in the Convention, although Governor Hill's friends as sume that it will. A call of the roll of States would be made on the nomination of presidential candidates. Alabama would lead off, followed by Arkansas and the rest of the States in al pha beticai succession, and Cleveland would be nominated before New York was reached on the roll call. It would then remain for New York to fall in line with the democratic procession or Hock by itself with a Uttlo Hil 1 side show. "With Mr. Cleveland as the candidate and lariff reform the issue, my conviction is that the iemocrats would sweep the country by the argeet majority of any presidential election tince Grant defeated Greeley.'1 These utterances are highly import ant, and in a sense very true. Just how lasting the sentiment in Mr. Cleveland's favor may prove, we do not pretend to say. Colonel Joues liiinsolf rather discounts it in his clon ing words, wherein he says;— "There is a very strong feeling for a Western candidate. If General Jolm M. Palmer, of Illinois, wore ten years younger * * * he would inevitably be the candidate." But evidently the West lias no use for Governor Hill, as η candidate. And why should it ? A candidate, to occupy a strong position in the public mind, should be identified with some great principle or movement which he has aided in advancing, and of which he stands as the representa tive before the people. One looks over Governor Hill's career in vain for any such thing. He has been a good and useful Governor to New York, he is a political manager of singular as tuteness. he has won a good deal of popularity of the effervescent kind, has made his name a kind of political sibboleth, through his celebrated ut terance, "I ain a democrat." But not one of these elements will take the place of the high requirement of a candidate for the presidency to which we have alluded. When Grant was elected President he represented the great idea of Na tional unity, regarded at that time as being still in some peril. Samuel J. Tilden, who was really elected President, stood as the repre sentative of political reform. James A. Garlleld was chosen as the exponent of the protection school of economics. (Jrover Cleveland stood again in Tilden's shoes as the foe of corruption and the defender of purity and economy. Benjamin Har rison again owed his election to his strong adherence to the protection policy. Mr. Cleveland is fairly a candidate now on the ground of his advocacy of Tariff Reform. Mr. Carlisle, Mr. Morrison, Mr. Mills might all have standing before the people as representatives of the same idea. Leon Abbett is known far and wide as the champion of another important principle. He stands before the people as the staunch defender of popular rights, the undismayed ad vocate of equal burdens and equal advantages for the humble and the mighty, the poor and the rich, the weak and the strong. But so far as we can remember, Governor Hill lias procured no great legislation, advocated no great cause, achieved no great results in some six years tenancy of the gubernatorial chair of New York. His title to con sideration rests purely on the fact that he has been able to carry his State in repeated campaigns. This it is true is material as a point of practical politics. But we think the Democracy will remember that there are other States besides New York which must be secured, and also that the same man who can win the popular support for the Governorship may not be able to command it for the hisrhest office in the people's gift. It takes a different stamp of man to make a great President from what will afford a good Governor. The people recog nize that fact, and they will not be deceived by showy epigrammatic isms or be controlled by political wire pulling. It can hardly be said that our fire men did themselves proud at the fire at Morrow & Day's on Saturday night. They are not responsible, of course, for the tardiness of the alarm, but, when they arrived on the scene, there was unaccountable tardiness in stretching the hose and getting water on the flames. Once they got started, the boys did very well, but at a fire promptitude is the thing that counts. Another thing for which they can not be held responsible is the rotten condition of the hose with which they had to work. The line which was stretched in front of the burning buildings leaked like a sieve. It threw jets and fountains of spray in all directions. Probably as much water was wasted as got on the fire. That hose would have disgraced a village in a back county. Well, we suppose, it was a relic of an old regime. It will be the duty of the new Fire Board to replace the rotten stuff as rapidly as possible. The sales of The Sunday Morning Nkws, yesterday, were three hundred in excess of those on the preceding Sunday. Doubtless the Morrow & Day fire had something to do with it. PERSONALS. The Rev. Henry C. Bedinger, rector of St. Luke's Church of Mata wan, tendered his resigna tion to the vestry on Monday evening. Iiis action wax due to a church feud, due it is said to & dissatiefaction because the minister showed u ueciueu preieveMUO jui mv puuiei' nieuiut·rs υι bis flock instead of catering to the more wealthy. The verdict in the case of the State vs. Major Wilmer Hodgson has been rendered by the court martial, and the papers have been turned over to General Plume, who has retaiued them in his hands for upwards three weeks, without making the verdict known. The Postmaster-General yesterday appointed L. W. Jacobus postmaster at New Durham. A water company has been organized at Sea Isle City for the purpose of sinking numerous artesian wells, to secure a supply for the town. A wild cut, measuring three feet,, from tip to tip, was shot near Pennsgrove recently. Somerset's silver-tongued orator, Hon. James P. S. Bergen, will lecture in Somerset Hall next Thursday evening, on "The Power Behind the Press." The subject is most happily chosen, the beneflcery being the ancient African Hercules, Bam Mount, whose able arm was the "power be hind the press" both in the local offices and in the Bound Brook Chronicle priutery before the latter'β adoption of steam power. Colonel Brown, proprietor of the "Court House Cottage, " was mad all the way through yesterday, and he had cause to be. Some con temptible "snapper-up of articles," pocketed the Sunday Morking News before the Colonel hod a chance to see it. The latter said:—"If he had stolen my qreakfast I wouldn't have kicked hall as much." A Respite for Accused Saloon Men. The cases of Frederick Heziu, L·.

SHE MADE WINFIEED'S HEAD AUHE. lint Then Mm. Gillis Convlcteil Her Man all tlic Same. Henry Jackson, α colored man, was tried in Judge Lippincott's Court this morning for stubbing Ella Gillis, a comely looking woman of thirty-five years with a knife. The offence was committed August 6. Mrs. Gillis told the court that while she was in the yard attached to her home at Belleville avenue, Marion, picking some tomatoes, an officer arrested Jask sou for breaking a barrel belonging to Policeman Sturges. The accused resisted the policeman, and said he was not afraid of him or Mrs. Gillis. Then he assaulted the sister of Mrs. Giliis, and, wheu the latter interfered, Jackson slabbed her with a pocket knife. Mrs. Gillis this morning in the court room was filled to overflowing with in formation, so much so that the Prose cutor reminded lier that his head ached and that a man was once talked to death. "I won't do that," said Mrs. Gillis, "for my health won't permit me to talk much," and at this she began a siege of vituperation, exhortation and condemna tion against every one in general and Jackson in particular. "Heavens! I never saw such a woman!" exclaimed Prosecutor Winfield. "Do not under any circumstances, allow your tongue to injure your health." Jackson denied absolutely that he stabbed the woman, but admitted that he threw a stick at her after she had knocked him down with a paint keg.

A.'» Assistant Secretary Gets a Suspended Sentence. Edward A. Robson, the assistant secre tary of the Young Men's Christian Asso ciation, who was arrested on Saturday evening for distributing invitations to the association's religious meetings, was arraigned before Justice Stilsing this morning. Considerable difficulty was experienced in finding a copy of the exact ordinance which it is claimed Mr. Robson violated. It was not in the ordinance book which the Justice had. All they could get from the City Clerk's office was a certified copy, aud the Court had not time to wait for that. Policeman Fitzhenry told how he was ordered by Captain Prettymau Smith to watch Robsou and arrest him as soon as he saw him distributing the invitations, and how he carried out his captain's orders. Mr. E. S. Cowles. who appeared for Robson, asked Fitzhenry if he warned Robson not to distribute the cards and the policeman said he did not. Robson acknowledged that he gave out the cards and was adjudged guilty of the char ere. Sentence was suspended by the Court. Arraignments and Sentences. Ann Hoar was arraigned on a charge of assault and battery in the Court of Ses sions this morning. She pleaded guilty to a simple assault. Michael Price, break ing and entering and robbing pigeon coops, pleaded guilty and was fined *25; Henry Saunders, assault and battery, pleaded guilty and sentence was sus penUed. He is a ten-year-old boy and had a free fight with a boy of his own age. Joseph Steingaes, a blind man, assault and battery, not guilty; Martin Weeks, atrocious assault and battery with a knife, guilty; Jacob Schmidt, entering and larceny, not guilty; John Cutley. break ing and entering freight car and stealing $50 worth of leather, guilty; Joseph Ger ald pleaded guilty, larceny, and was sent to the County Jail for thirty days. To Protect Horse Car Patrons. Accidents,and miraculous escapes from them, to horse cars at railroad crossings have become so trequent of late, that the J. C. and B. R.R.Company has taken pre cautionary measures to prevent their re currence. Beginning today, all con ductors in its employ upon reaching the railroad crossing, must leave their cars, and satisfy themselves that there is abso lute safety before signalling their driver to cross the tracks. In this way the com pany will be enabled to guarantee per fect safety to ita patrons. North Hudson Notes. The members of the Washington Coterie had a merry Mine at Kuth'H Hall, Union Hill, Saturday evening. The hall was crowded, and it was far into the morning before the happy party broke up. The young gentlemen who have organized the Washington Coterie in tend to make this but the first of a num ber of entertainments which they will give during the season. A number of the "bloods" of West New York organized a Are company last Satur day. The officer» are: Foreman, Levi Hooney aud Assistant Foreman, Conrad Ritter. The Harmonic Musical Society of West Hoboken, gave a pleasant evening to a number of West Hoboken folk last Satur day evening. A number of classic selec tions were rendered. The proceeds weut for the benefit of the school library. Mr. Albert Jahl played a violiu solo with exquisite expression. The other numbers of a lengthy pro gramme were deserving of praise. Mr. Kobert Atyinger aud Elizabeth Stiehler, of Union Hill, will be married by the Kev. Father Crieff, of the Church of the Holy Family, tomorrow morning. Mike Wallace aud Louisa Weude, of West New York, were married but two weeks ago. Their wedded life has not been happy, aud Louisa, for some strange reason, left her husband last Thursday. He tried to find her, aud after some trouble met her in the disreputable "House of Blazes" in Union Hill. Wallace made such a fuss that he was arrested. Louisa is still iu the "House of Blazes," while her husband lias goue to the County Jail. THE DELICATE MUSHROOM HOW TO COOK Λ S η JIOW TO ΧΛ ' HIM.

How many of our housewives, even of those who are spending August in the country, let the season piss without pick lingua single button or extracting the precious juice from a single flap! " What does it matter? Ketchup is cheap. It can be got every day to next August." By no "means. Ο indolent housewhife. Ketchup is not cheap. The shopkeepers make a large profit out of it, and their ketchup is never good. In the first place it is weak—the strong heart of it broken and wasted with water or vinegar or I know not what. Aud do you think that these large manufacturers who make it by the ton put the mushrooms to soak the day they are culled, or cut off the earthy stem-ends, or clear away the adhering grass, or eveu work on Held mushrooms at all, and not rather on those that are bred by the million in reeking hotbeds? Give nie, please, the liquid that is made at home, and by one who knows that she aud her beloved family will cousnme what she makes. And so waste no more time, but make your year's supply at once, and save α couple of pounds, which are not always as plentiful as oub could wish. By-tlie-way, tiie reduction of mushrooms to ketchup is a process which may be observed by the iguoraut with some surprise. I had the pleasure of witnessing it the other dayiu the house of my excellent but not juvenile friend, Miss Dorcas Early, where I am as well domesticated as her favorite cat. "What a nice cool pantry," X observed, as I followed Miss Early into lier sanctum. If my friend has a fault, it is that of being a little too susceptible to a compliment on the score of her housekeep ing. "How bright and shining every thing is here, really like the house of Menelans!" "I don't know that person," she answered a little tartly; "but I be lieve it is clean;" and the good lady sur veved her little realm with some justifi able pride. "And so these are your mush room pans? But what is the stuff they lie soaking in? Vinegar?" "What do you mean?" "I mean this black stuff here. You soak the mushrooms in some liquid or other; I want to know what it is." "Oh. I see," said Miss Early, smiling benignly. " I put iu no liquid at all. What you see is their own juice." "Do you tell me so? And they look such dry things. How do you get the juice out of them?" "With salt. I scatter a layer of salt over every layer of mushrooms. That gets the juice out of them fast enough, with the aid of a little breaking and bruising." "They seem tn atnlr îIaumi nPiiflifrinM'jlu In tlio rtmnasc " I replied; "I suppose this pan was once heaped up as high as this?" "Yes." "And what is the next step?" "After three days' soaking I boll them, juice and all; then strain oil the juice, add spices, and boil again; then bottle and store away." "This is very interesting. I have often noticed the excellence of your catsup and am very well pleased to learn how you make it." "Btit I am very carefiil about my mushrooms," answered Miss Early. "Some people are so care less. For example, if you use mush rooms gathered too soon after rain, your catsup won't keep. You may have to fling away the whole of your year's sup ply." » So saying. Miss Dorcas Early stepped nimbly to her kitcheu to resume her morning's work of pickling buttons, while I gazed with admiration after the light, alert llgure of my pattern housekeeper. I wish she were more intellectual, 'l'hat apt allusion of mine to the house of Mene laus was not only quite thrown away upon her, but actually awoke her displeasure. But then her house is all as clean as spring water; never in my life have I seen so clean a house; and her library—she has an excellent one, the property of the late Dean Early, whose Commentary on the Epistle to the Ephesiaus was so highly commended—Is always at my dis Dosai. After our conversation in the pantry, I roamed aoout in the garden, wondering at the curious old cottage herbs there—ver bena, sage lavender, etc.—and watched the bees till luncheon-time. Amongst other good things provided hero for my delectation was α neat little dish of baked mushrooms piping hot, and piled up into the shape of a pyramid rising out of a little black sea of mush room juice. The Dean's portrait, holding a book iu his hand — it was the Commentary—was behind and above Miss Early as we sat at uieat. He seemed to watch me with unfriendly eyes as I helped myself, not sparingly, tc those fragrant and steaming Haps. "1 observe there are no buttons here," said I, as 1 worked Into the neart of the pyra mid. "I suppose they don't bake well." "No," replied my hostess, with emphasis, "buttons for stewing, flaps for buking— medium-sized are the best." I thought of the 1 toman Emperor wlxo loved mush rooms not wisely but too well; but never theless transferred the last flap to my plate, aud that though the Deau's look showed the greatest asperity. I wonder had mushrooms anything to do with his demise? "What an excellent thing it would bo. Miss Early," I said aloud, "if we could preserve mushrooms so as to have a disli such as this at any time iu the year." My hostess laughed sweetly at such ignorance. "Why, I preserved a jar ol them myself this morning. The process is quite simple. You peel your mush lUUUiO, puu L11U111 1U wain I(1U1 u uuvtv lemou-juice, remove hdcI dry them. Stow them till (hy iu butter, lemon-juice, salt and pepper. When quite dry store them up lii jars, pouring claritied butter ovei the top." '•To keep out the air," I observed, in telligently. "Exactly so; but for a man who likes mushrooms so well you know surpris lngly little about, them." '~'lhat may be," I replied; "but I know more now than I did this morning, and rather mûre,I think, than many iuen who faucy themselves well educated." Tiie Homing Faculty. The existence of the homing faculty iti many auimals is well known, but is nou« the less mysterious. It is known, foi instance, that mauy honey-hunters tind their prey by catching bees and letting them free at different points.

The friend said she would be glad to couid, and would be over in a very few minutes, and the other woman went home and sat down by an open window to await her friend's coming. The day was warm and peaceful, the window shady and she fell asleep. When she awakened the shades of night were falling fast, and some one was rap ping vigorously at the door.

The boys and girls marry at a very early age, and conjugal infldelity is rare, especially on the part ot the husband. The Dutch fishermen and women marry between the ages ot tweuty-iour and twenty-eight, and they are more anxious about age and inclinations agreeing than iortuues. What Tacitus says, in allud ing to the manners of the ancient liatavi, ie living history here; adultery is un known; "the wife does not espouse her husband, but marriage." Separations are extremely rare. "The sea, iu fact, is the visible con science of the fisherman, and he is anxious to prove himself honest and pure in its sight." Family life is exemplary, and, as the husband is absent a great part of the year, either sailing in the North to catch herrings, or engaged in the Zuvder Zee in the great sprat fishery, the education of the children devolves on the wife.

In the Court of General Sessions this morning Antonio Laurio, of Colgate street, was tried for assault and battery. He threw a beer can at a mjtu and hit the child iu his arms. The child subsequent ly died, but Dr. Converse could not trace death to the blow. It was thirteen days after the assault that the child died. The trouble took place in the shop of Guis seppe Gentili, a barber on Colgate street, and was caused by a gambling game similar to quoits in which Laurio was en gaged. A general fight followed and several ar rests were made, and a couple of weeks ago three or four convictions for assault and batterv were made, Laurio being oue of them. When he testified in his own behalf he denied positively that he threw a cau at the child or anyone else. He was convicted of simple assault and fined «10. Pennies Legal Tender. The action of that New Jersey bank in dumpiug &J.000 in silver on its floor in payment of checks in the hands of rival institution brings up the question of legal tenders, says the Washington Post. Gold has always been legal tender in the United States. With a brier interval previous to the passage of the Bland act, silver dollars have been also. Greenbacks are, but gold and silver certificates are not, except on customs, taxes and public dues. National bank notes are not legal tenders, and can be, and often have been refused in payment of debt. Sub sidary coin is also legal tender only in nnontUioo A gentleman went to the stamp win dow of the post otlice in a neighboring citv and called for 100 one-cent stamps, tendering 100 one-cant pieces "Those are not legal tender in any such amounts," growled the stamp clerk. "I refuse to accept theui." "You do. eh ?" answered the gentle man. "Well, give me one stamp," at the same time shoving out one penny. The stamp was forthcoming. "Now, give me a stamp." He got it. "Another stamp." "Now another." "See here," said the clerk, "how many stamps do you want ? You are Keeping twenty people waiting." "Oh. I always keep within the law," responded the gentleman. "Another stamp, please. Pennies are not legal tender in large amounts. Another stamp." And he shoved out his pennies and pur chased stamps one at a time till he got his hundred. But the clerk was cured. Pennies are legal tender at his window in barrel lots. Love nml Luw. "Father," said the lawyer's daughter, "you know that Algernon has tor some time been making suit for my hand." "Yes." "He filed his declaration last evening. " "And you want my consent?" "Not exactly. 1 was afraid he might file application for leave to amend his declaration, so 1 closed out the case at once. ' '—Merchtmt Travcller. A Shocking Wife.
