This paper is Democratic In principles end is independent in its views on all local questions. The New Board of Freeholders. The Republican press of the State, lead by the Evening Journal, seeins desirous of "queering" the new sys tem of county government of which the lately elected Board of Free holders is the embodiment. The motive for this course lies on the surface. Under the old rotten borough system the party of moral ideas used to scoop in considerable loaves and fishes in this county, and in Essex used to take the lion's share unto itself. The present plan, which apportion· the control of the county according το ine true ascenaanoy 01 the parties is of course distasteful to the side that has thus been deprived of its unfair advantages. Th· Evening Journal in pursuance of its plan to discredit the reform, in vented a monstrous fake concerning the new Hudson board. It repre sented the members as holding a caucus and laying plans to do all sorts of corrupt and high-handed things, and it raved and tore its venerable locks in anguish of spirit. The story looked fishy upon its surface. People read it and wondered, Now the truth comes out. There was not one word of truth in it. There has been no caucus yet, and when one is held—probably tomorrow—nothing crooked or underhanded or high handed or in any way peculiar will be done. The fact is the new Freehold ers are elected as the exponents of re form, and their political future de pends on the goodness of the admin istration which they afford. They are all well aware of this, and it is not common sense to suppose they Would inaugurate their regime by doing anything improper or even unpop ular. Praisk is doubly praise when it comes from a hostile source. That is the reason we clip the following:-— The Jehsky City News calls itself a "wonder ful paper." It tells the truth. Nothing like it In the journalistic line has ever bMn seen in New Jersey.—Trenton Tinw.8. Thanks, awfully, dear "Hob." Our New Navy. The Newark Advertiser finds some thing to arouse the pride of every citizen in the spectacle of our new fleet rtf new wjinitilna RAilinc nut. rvf Naw York harbor to display our ensign in the ports of all our sister nations. It is indeed an edifying occasion; but is there not a humiliation in its novelty? Only twenty years ago we possessed a navy which, if not the finest in the world, at least stood comparison with those of second rate maritime powers, and which afforded a nucleus from •which, with our national energy and resources, we might have easily built up a formidable marine force. The Newark Advertiser mast be well aware that Republican misrule is re sponsible for the dry rot that con sumed that branch of our national armament, and it must be well aware that the rehabilitation, of which the particular event in question is the first fruit, was purely and entirely the product of democratic honesty and vigor. The Republican party is to blame for dragging our flag in the dust in many ways. The weakness of its foreign policy and the venality of those who bave administered it have covered us with shame, while the notorious impossibility of our taking aggressive measures to protect our citizens or our rights has made war like nations regard us with contempt. Mr. Cleveland's administration awoke other governments to a recog nition of the fact that we were a great power, bravo enough and strong SÎi-.£ ·;.\ enough to assert our rights, and It I also laid the foundation of a force ! which will make our appeals, not mere ; empty sound, but claims backed by ability to enforce regard. The Republican papers are paving the way for a desperate resistance to ballot reform. Here and there they are working themselves into spasms of wrath against the Democratic system, whatever it may prove to be. Of course this was to be expected. It would be a cold day for the Republi can party if ballot reform were an ac complished fact. Camden bribery and Paterson bulldozing would be equally unprofitable. But this open prepara tion for opposition to it strikes us as somewhat injudicious. The Demo cratic party means business in this matter,and whoever stands in the way is going to get hurt. That Hall of Records Nuisance. It is only a little while since The Jersey City News drew attention to trie scanaaious neglect 01 vuu tractor John A. Brown, who has dilly dallied for nearly a year over the new Hall of Records which was to have been and could easily have been completed by June 1, last. We then pointed out that, although Mr. Brown's bond pro vided no penalty for his failure to carry out his contract, the common law afforded ample means of punish ing him. Acting on our suggestion, the Grand Jury has taken up Mr. Brown and his work, and at the hour of this writing, there seems to be a strong probability that a formidable presentment will be made. It is amusing to see Mr. Brown, under the stimulus of this procedure, falling over himself in his haste to push the building towards comple tion. It will doubtless be equally amusing though rather more exasper ating to see Mr. Brown relapse into inactivity and indifference should the Grand Jury postpone action on ac count of the present spasm of energy. The West Side of Bergen Hill should be provided with proper drain age. If the city has failed to open streets through which main sewers can be laid to tide water she should not hesitate to assist the citizens in making a way across the mea dows for such outlets. An article on our front page today shows that the outlets to be provided are sure to pay for themselves, to say nothing of the increased income the city will de rive in the shape of taxes, from the development of a naturally desirable residence section. PERSONALS. The State Board of Canvassers baring offlici ally decided that Governor Abbett's plurality over General Grubb was 14,£53, Marshall & Ball, the clothiers, have made the award of their J_/1 lica lkji » nu auuuiu guoas ucaicai ιυ nie figures.

O'Neill, secretary of Court Glenwood, A. O. F. of Α., are bustling all over town to secure that gold watoh that will be presented to the most popular forester at the fair now in progress at St. Patrick's (R. C.) Church. The Philadelphia Record of Sunday said Miss Florence Audenried, of Washington, would soou be married to Mr. Robert Green, son of Governor Green, of New Jersey. Since January 1 there have been ninety-seven rainy days this year and five days of snow, in cluding little squalls and storms. It has rained for five successive Saturdays. Robert Lounsbury, the Moorestown farmer, who preferred an imprisonment in the county jail to paying a fine on a charge of adulterating inilk, to which he pleaded not guilty, has been released. Mrs. Eva Hamilton's occupation in her ceil in the State Prison is sewiug buttons on shirts. She has employed ex-Judge Hoffman to defend her in the New York courts when the suit for divorce begun by her husband comes up for trial. Ex Judge Hoffman is also examining the evidence taken in the trial at May's Landing, with a view to finding defects sufficient to reopen the case and secure for Mrs. Hamilton a new trial. Mrs. Hamilton did not at first relish the prison fare, but now she is beginning to thrive on the diet. She seems of a religious turn of mind and fre quently reads the Bible. She is writing a narra tive of her life. The Trenton Steel and Iron Company has been awarded the contract to erect a new turn-table under the drawbridge at Delanco, at a cost of $2,300. William T. Bailey, G. George Browning, Ε. N. and R. S. Cohn and T. B. Rioe, of Camden, have returned from a most successful gunning trip through the Dismal Swamp, North Carolina. Their victims are not confined to rabbits and birds, but a 203-pound black bear and a 163-pound deer hang in front of J. R. Eastlake's grocery, at Third and Market streets, and speak strongly of tfae success of the party. No one in the party will disclose who it was that fired the fatal shot that killed the bear, all claiming equal honors, and claiming to have shot the same time the bear gave up the ghost. It may be that the bear was divided into sections, and each killed the section allotted to him. Two carloads of game, which was killed during the trip, is expected to arrive daily, and will be placed on exhibition at the same place. All the gunners arrived home When many residents in the Third Ward of Paterson awoke Tuesday morning they found their fences, gates aud door knobs plastered with axle grease, this work having been done by a number of lade. Some of the young rascals are known, and angry citizens contemplate having them arrested. The grease was obtained from a keg that stood on the sidewalk in Broadway, and beiongep to the horse railroad company. The letter carriers of Camden are "kicking" because Postmaster Browniug has increased their duties. They formerly made two collections and two deliveries a day, but now are compelled in certain districts to make four deliveries and seven collections. Postmaster Browning says.if any of the men are dissatisfied there were plenty of other men ready to take their places. The Delaware Rolling Mill at Phillips burg which has been idle for six or eight months· started up Monday full handed. After the works had been running an hour a flywheel on the ('squeezers11 burst, and the pieces Hew in al( directions, some going thrOugft the roof, but no one was injured. Governor Green is reported to have said that had he known at the beginning of his term the necessities of the National Guard of the State as he does now, there would have been very many radical changes. It was too late now to inau gurate plans for the improvement of the Guard, but his successor, Leon Abbett. no doubt would. The Governor thought that there never would be a division encampment. «3 the expense would be too great, but he did think that all the regi ments would be so changed so as to contain twelve companies each, or three battalions of four companies each. The battalions would thon drill as battulions and the regiments be in spected as such. The, Camden Telegram, ascribes an unkind motive to President Harrison's friendship for General Sewell> It says:,—"President Harrison does not expect to receive the electoral vote of New Jersey, but looks to Sewell to give him the delegates in the National Convention, hence the disposition of the patronage. It is said that all New Jersey office seekers now understand that they have to apply to General Sewell, and that the recommendation of a Congressman will not eecure an applicant a position without Sewell's endorsement.11 Chief Justice Beasley was placed in an amus ing position Tuesday morning. When the case of Boyles vs. Newtowcn, involving the oleomar garine law, was annonnced, the Judge stated that he had the misfortune to reach a conclu sion in a case which was at variance with every other member of the Court, and for the purpose of showing that his judgment was not so very erratic, he would read the opinion. The suit was an appeal from a penalty prescribe d under the act for the sale of oleomargarine. The Chief Justice decided that the original action in the court for the trial of small causes was invalid. because tue court naa no jurisuicuon. xua au» tice entered the case in the court for the trial of small causes, instead of before him as a Jus tice of the Peace. The court decided, by a vote of 12 to 1, to affirm the decision below, the Chief Justice alone voting to revorse. A new board walk is is to be built at Atlantic City at the public expense. Ex-Congressman Kean will succeed Joseph Battin as president of the Elizabeth Water Com pany. Seven persons have been arrested for Intimida tion of the non-union workers employed by Whitney Bros, ih their glass works at Glassboro. They were bound over to answer the charge. Sylvan us Hoff, of Key port, an oysterman, was arrested on Tuesday by uniformed policemen of the watch boat from Port Richmond on the îharge of dredging for clams in New Yorkwaters. Hoff claimed that he was a full mile away from ihe New York line, and resisted his captors, tnocking one of them down. He was finally over powered. Division No. 3, Ancient Order of Hibernians, of Bordentown, has offered a reward of $25 for in formation leading to the arrest and conviction of ihe person who wrote a threatening letter to Councilman Philip H. Brakely, signed "A Mem ber of the Α. Ο. H." Principal Rheinhart, of the Paterson High School, is about to resign, and there are thirty flve applicants for the place. NEW PUBLICATIONS. "The Ledger" in New Shape. We do not know whether or not to hail with pleasure the appearance of the New York Ledger in new shape. In its old form It has for years been the friend of hundreds of thousands of readers, and its old familiar look was always welcome to their eyes. This pleasant familiarity will be missed by those who take up the new sheet; but it must be admitted that when the feeling of strangeness has passed away the new Ledger has many advantages. Though containing the same amount of reading matter as of old— being now a sixteen page sheet—the size of the page has been greatly reduced, so that the paper is much more easily handled, and can be read in transit without folding. A greatly improved quality of paper is used, too, and this results in much better typographical appearance than of did. The wood cuts in particular gain by this change, and, printed as they now are, they compare favorably with anv which wo have seen in weekly publications. The number dated Saturday, No vemuer li>, Wtus nmu iu WHICH lue changes were begun. The general brightening up extends to the reading matter, and it is hardly too much to say that this was one of the most bril liant issues the Ledger has known. A new story entitled "The Forsaken Inn" was begun, and if it approaches in merit the other works of the author ess, Miss Anna Katharine Green, It ought to prove a most attractive fea tnre. Leo Hartman contributes the first of a series of papers on Nihilism, the Rev. Edgertou R. Young, mission ary to the Cree Indians, begins some short sketches of life in the -'Wild North Land," and Henry \V. Grady writes his "first article" on "The New South." These are only some of the attrac tions of a most admirable publica tion. Tlie Arena for December. The Arena for December has just been issued. It contains many arti cles of interest. The Rev. Minot J. Sage, of the Unity Church, Boston, discusses the "Agencies that Are Working a Revolution iu Theology." He concludes that a new faith is dis sipating old beliefs, that religion is no more dying "than it means death for ohildhood to put away childish things and enter upon manhood's state." He goes on, "It is not faith but the lack of it that is displayed by those who dare not fearlessly face the search for truth and take the consequences Of investigation. The real infidelity of today is to be fouud among those who stand with their backs to the sunrise and see no reality except in the shadows of the night that is passing away. God is in the power that is wheeling the earth into the new day; and that day is one of such promise as the weary old world has never seen." \V. H. H. Murray also discusses "The IlaliiHous Ouestion": Rabbi Solomon Schindler writes upon "His torv in the Public Schools"; Geor.je β. McNeill upon "The Democracy of Labor Organization." There are sev eral other interesting articles besides. November's Coitmopoll tail. It seems to us that the most inter esting article in the Cosmopolitan for November is that of Charles IS. Pel ham-Clinton upon ''The Stables of the Queen of England." It is well written and agreeably illustrated, and it affords an interesting sidelight on the life of royalty. Miss Elizabeth Η island has a good article, too, upon "Co-operative Housekeeping in Tene ments." Other good things are "The French Arinv on a Peace Footing" by Count Paul Vasili; "Whirlpools of the Grand Canyon" by Etlnin Allan Hey nolds; "Scene Painting as a Fine Art;' by John P. Ritter, and "Chicago's Candidacy for the Great Fair" by Senator Charles B. Farwell. AMUSEMENTS. There is probably no one in the profession more popular than Mr. Oliver Bvron, and no one more suc cessful in the melodramatic Ime. He is supported by the charming Kate Byton and the Byron Combination, which has been almost identical sea son after season for the past seven years. Mr. Oliver Byron is a shrewd mana ger as well as a talented actor, and, having surrounded himself with cap able people, knows how to retain them. They will appear at the Academy of Music in their old-time play, "Across the Continent," for oae week, beginning next Monday. \ CHINESE GYMNASTICS. MASSAGE IS A l'RODVCT Of Till FlOWKIiY ΚΕΛΙ.31. Dancing a Form of Health ExercUo Tlie Kvll of Callow Marriage·—Tin New Gowns of the Empress Frederick The original gymnastic exercises of th< ancients consisted mainly of rhythmica movements such as dance and pantomimi associated with religious worship ami feasts. Much later it was developed int< pedagogical training and warlike pur poses, and still further certain exercise) and movements were successfully em ployed with therapeutical designs. Con sequently, it is manifest that gymnastic: wore intimately connected with the innei life of the people, beine part of its reiig ious observances, education and by giene. According toP.Amiot, in his "L'Abreg* Chronologique de l'Histoire de .'Wmpirt Chinais," tne diseases during the Km peror Yu-Kang-Chi increased at uu alarming rate as a result of various clim atic changes and disturbances. With e view of ameliorating this coudition and imnroviriir the hvtrienic condition of his people, tho Emperor ordered tneperiorm auce or his subjects of various military exercises and evolutions, aud by this wise measure the general health of the uatiou was iu course of time maintained. It ap pears that diverse dances were included in these manoeuvres, with aud without the equipment of shield and flag. This practice was persevered In until tne reign of Emperor Fou-Hi, who flourished about 3,408 years before the Christian era. It is, therefore, evideutthat gymnastics were employed to the benefit of the peo ple in China at this distant age, ana much earlier than is recorded by any other cul tured nation. It appears also that the Chinese were conversant not only with the pedagogical use of gymnastics for training aud drill to the preservation of health, but also conceived the physiologi cal efforts thereof on the organism lu a manner that even to Harvey would have appeared a most valuable hint. From Chinese writings it is ascertained that their physicians and learned men held that within the organism circulates a sub tle fluid matter, tlie motion of which was supposed to decline or altogether stag nate, if the body was not in motion. Var ious maladies originated in consequence of such stagnation. Ancient Chinese en gravings represent anatomical demon strations and gymnastic exercises not only active, executed without aid, but also passive aud semi-passive, with the help of assistants, who were also skilled in kneading, stacking, pressing and all the multifarious dexterities of rudimen tury massage. It seems, therefore, that the ancient Mongolians to a certain ex tent appreciated the therapeutical virtue of gymnastics, and in this, as well as in other respects, were ahead of modern cul ture. In China it was deemed inseparable from a liberal education of the young to dance aud sing well, and in the most re mote times public schools existed there, besides this accomplishment, instruction was imparted in arithmetic, penmanship and the art 01 driving a carriage. It is said of the great philosopher aud religi ous founder' Kon-Fut-Tse (Confucius), that he participated in gymnustlc prac tices with much skill and diligence. The priests have in their possession a system of gymnastics named Kong-Fau, which inclndes different positions of the body and varioue methods of respiration. The principal positions are the standing, the sittlhg ana the recumbent. First—From the standing position vari ous different postures are derived, by the moving of the legs apart by the planting of one foot forward, backward or to the side. By the posing of the arms vertically or hor izontally, or by lifting one arm upward, one downward, or by striking an attitude akimbo. By leaning the body forward, sideward, or backward, etc. oecoul ι—r idui lue aiLUij^ puaiauu inv erse attitudes are obtained much in the same manner as when standing. Third—In the recumbent position ex pedient variations were gained by resting either on the back, prostrated face down, or lying upon [one side, and by all the nu merous pointings of arms and legs pre viously mentioned, including different positions of tiie head. With a skilful and methodical systejn of bending and stretching, raising and lowering, extending and closing ot arms and legs, a peculiarly varying and almost unlimited mass of gymnastic postures, movements, exercises and attitudes are obtained in the system of Kong-Fan. tending to the development of every mus cle and sinew of the body harmoniously and symmetrically. It is also worth at tention that the Cninese have known and applied gymnastics for otherwise neglected organs, the tongue and eyes. Active and passive motions and manifes tations of the tongue were designed to in crease the secretion of the saliva and for the correction of stammering and im paired speech. To the various modes of respiration through the mouth, through the nose, or both at the same time during the inhalation, quick or slow, forcible or elongated, no small amount of import ance was attached in their gymnastic executions. It is quite in accordance with the ancieut and high state of Chinese culture thât gymnastics should be employed by this people as a means of preserving health, of developing and perfecting warriors and of coping with disease. When Metzgcr, some twenty-ilve years ago, astonished Europe with his success ful use of massage, very few were familiar with the fact that thousands of years be fore the Christian era the Chinese had no other remedy for anchyloses, contraction of muscles, neuralgia aud rheumatism than kneading, rolling, stoking, hacking, capping and such like dexterous knick kuacks, in modern times simplified and aud perfected. The Chinese system of gymnastics has been develeped without influence from abroad, has sprung up from its own soil and has never been transplanted to the benefit of other nations. The Greeks' athletics aud games were not formed after the Chinese model, at least history tells us nothing about it. From P. H. Liug, the fouuder of the Swedish system, down to the present day, no author 01 practitioner has ever quoted any prac tical experience, loan or research from Chinese tvmuustics. Bniprea· Frederick'· Gown*. Messrs. Ruseeil and Allen, of Old Bone street, have just completed two beautifu dresses for H. i. H. the Empress Freder ick of Germany, to wear on the occasion of her daughter's wedding in Greece. The reception dress Is of a dark graj tone, a mixture ol rich soft cordec silk and moire. The skirt is quite sim pie, with α thick pinked-out ruche in front; the bodice is draped on both side! over the moire vest, and has a jabol of «rey lisse down the centre. For wear iug with this there is a small mantelet ol the same rich silk, with handsome em broidery to match. It is of the scarf or der, short at the back, with long ends in front, terminating in ribbon bows, it is lined with silk throughout.

More than a year ago the Russian Grand Duke Michael at a Parisian sup per party lost a philopena to his neighboi at the table, the well known artist, Ros^ Honheur. "What shall I Λίνο you?" hi asked, and she answered, "Sometli Ιιιμ alive that I can paint." The whole atïall was forgotten by her, wheu one day re· V oeutly she received three (uperb white bears from Siberia, so perfectly trained that she can use them to the greatest ad • vantage as models. It hail taken α year to complete their education. The Snow Plant. One thing that never falls to interest all who gee it, when it Is found on the moun tain heights of the Sierras, is the snow plant, known to botanists as the Barcodes ■sanguinea, meaning blooded flesh. No flesh or blood could be as exquisitely beautiful; Imagine a rosy and snow tinted, crowded hyacinth, from eiçtht to twenty inches in height, every miniature bell wound about by a rosy and frosted silver ribbon, all topped by a huge head of asparagus In hoar frost and silvar. The frosted papilla is very marked on every sepal and bract. Though the whole translucent spike is flushed with rose and carmine, the petals are the deep est and most brilliantly colored parts of the flower, which is five parted, and each open one showing sliehtly the stamens and pistais. There have been seen specimens bear ing eighty perfect flowers and a pseudo bulb twenty-two iuches incircutnference, brittle almost as spun glass, and although solid as a pineapple when first dug up, dried away to the size of the stem. All attempts at cultivation have thus far failed, the bulbs refusing to stand trans planting and the seeds to sprout. It was once said that they would not survive be low the level of the summer snow line, but thev have been since seen almost cov ering the ground far below. The snow banks seem, however, to protect them I fmm tho wlrwîu eu7A»nill(i !J irinrii/ t,ho mountains, and they make their early growth and development beneath the driven snows, and when the approach of summer leaves the surface of the ground exposed it is covered in a few d;iys with the red crowns of the snow plauts.—Amer ican Gardener. Callow Marriages. Nine-tenths of the unhappy marriages are the result of green human calves being allowed to run at large in society pastures without any yoke on them. They marry and have children before they do m ustaches. They are the fathers of twins before they are the proprietors of two pairs of pants, aud the little girls they marry are old women before they are twenty years old. Occasionally one of these gosling marriages turns out all right, but it is a clear case of luck. If there was a law atraiList young galoots sparking aud marrying before they have cut all their teeth, we suppose the little cusses would evade it in some way. But there ought to be a sentiment against it. It is time enough for these bantams to thiuk of ftndina a pullet when they have raised money enough to buy a bundle of lath to ouild a hen house. But they see a girl who looks cunning, and they are afraid there are not going to be enough to go round and they begin to epark real spry, aud before they are aware of the sanctity of the marriage relation they are hitched for life, and before they own a cook stove or a bedstead they have got to get up in the night and go after the doc tor, so frightened that they run them selves out of breath and abuse the doctor because he does not run too. And when the doctor gets there there Is not linen enough in the house to wrap up the baby. —Astoria (Ore.) Transcript. Queen and Peasant. One afternoon as Her Majesty, some hundreds of miles distant from her Life Guards, was taking a solitary walk along a public road in the vicinity of Balmoral, she met a couutrywoman carrying a bas ket of eggs, with whom she entered into conversation. In reply to a question put to her, the basket carrier said she was going with her eggs to The Place—a name given to Balmoral by the Highlanders to distinguish it irom every other place in the world. "Do you get a good price for your eggs?" inquired Her Majesty. "Sometimes," replied the woman, "but we aye get the best price when the Qneen comes." On this Her Majesty offered to uiirehase the contents of the basket, and tendered a sovereign in exchange. "i cannot break it, my leddv," said the woman, meaning that she had not "change" enough. "Oh, never mind," saia the Queen, "if you cannot break it you must keep it whole. Take your eggs to The Place and tell the people there that the Queen has paid for them." The hon - est woman started back with uplifted hands, and, with joy and surprise pictured on her face, exclaimed:—"Is that your ainsel'. Mistress Albert? Is that your ainsel'?" Crushed* It was while Fanny Davenport was playing an engagement here. A young man, who was a clerk at the Union Depot Hotel, after a rather lively priming with the boys, went to the opera house. He was a good looking fellow with a black mustache, and the figure he cut tliat night was given color by his new light overcoat and high silk hut. By the time he reached the theatre it was prettv full; so was he. But he bought a parquet seat right down front, aud with tolerably steady steps he made his way to it. It was in the middle of the scene, What the play was I don't remember. As ho reached hie seat, and was divesting hiui self of his loud overcoat.

Christ Hospital. The work of caring for the sick, has commenced in earnest at the new Qhrist Hospital. There were no patients to be transferred from the old hospital on Mag nolia avenue, but there are now twelve under treatment iu the new edifice on Palisade avenue. Iu the men's Ward is Mr. J.
