Rum and Crime.
In a recent issue of the Bangor
News, one of the most intelligent and
enterprising papers in the Eastern
States, by the way, we find a .ng and
interesting article by Judge Henry A.
Gildersleeve of the New Yorlc Court
of General Sessions on the subject of
crime. Judge Gildersleeve's court is
entirely a criminal one, and he has
now presided over it for fourteen
years, and he has earned
*16 reputation of being a fear
and «.^conscientious, as
m as an able and thoughtful magis
/*trate. Hardly any one could speak
r with more authority upon a matter of
public ethics, and there is harcHy any
one in the country whose utterances
■will command more attention.
One passage in Judge Gildersleeve's
article is so important that we repro
duce it here. He says:—
Contrary to the doctrines so fiercely preached
by the prohibition orators, the relationship be
tween crime and drunkenness is very vague and
indefinite. There is no necessary connection be
tween the two. Drunkards have neither the
energy nor brain power to violate the law to any
serious extent, and, on the other hand, Criminals
of any ability are as temperate as men in the
honest walks of life. It may be questioned if the
percentage of drunkenness, delirium tremens
and alcoholism is any greater among profes
sional lawbreakers than in society at large. In
spector Byrnes, than whom no greater authority
exists, has wisely said that the moment a crimi
nal becomes a slave to alcohol his doom is
sealed, and the opinion will be borne out by
every one who has given the subject proper
attention. Professional evildoers require
the full use of brain and body. The confidence
operator, the bank thief, the forger, and the
counterfeiter, could never make a successful
stroke if their minds were olouded with intoxi
cation. When men of this class appear in court,
such, for example, as "Hungry Joe." "Kid"
Miller, "Cigarette" Hairy, Brockway, Draper,
and Noble, they are pictures of sobriety and
temperance. In many instances they appear,
indeed, to better advautage than the unfortunate
honest folk whom they have victimized.
That intemperance is productive ol
terrible crime and misery cannot be
disputed; but if it be compared with
other vices we hardly think it
■will prove to be the uiosl
destructive. Every day the pa
pers team with crimes having
their origin in the vice of lewdness—
murder, robbery, forgery and othei
offences, and as between drunkenness
and lewdness we should rather think
the latter was responsible for mort
broken hearts and wasted lives.
All the arguments used in behalf ol
the total abstinence theory apply
equally to every human instinct
which is capable of being carried to
extremes or perverted into iuipropei
channels. There is no more reason
why the State should interfere
in one case than in the other,
and there is no more hope that Stat*
interference would prove repressive it
one case than in the other. We have
severe laws in this State against gam
bling and adultery and it would b<
ridiculous to assert that the}
■were effectual or anything lik<
effectual in suppressing these vices
It is true that both are kept withii
narrow bounds, but the repressing in
fluences are the moral sense of in
dividuals and the general repro
bation of the community. Verj
few people, indeed, who disregarc
these high considerations will be de
terred from doing wrong by the feai
of the law, which is peculiarly liabh
to miss offences of these sorts, how
ever severe it may be in theory .
In the first place, we agree wit!
Judge Gildersleeve that the effect ο
liquor is absurdly overestimated ii
respect to crime, and in the seconc
place we believe what he does not saj
but probably thinks, that whateve
i evil liquor is responsible for cannot
ι be reduced by prohibitory legislation.
Therk is a scheme to send one
Foraker, late of Ohio politics, to St.
Petersburg as the representative of
this country. Russia is a cold place, I
but it would probably feel quite warm j
and comfortable to Foraker after the |
great chill of a recent election.
If this weather continues much
longer, the Christmas trees of the pru- .
dent will bear principally quinine and I
cough syrup, with a few rubber boots
to make up the necessary ounces of
prevention for those who have man
aged to escape so long.
The Children's Christmas.
The ten dollar note which Mr. !
Charles J. Peshall left in our hands j
Saturday night as a starter for a sub- !
scription for the purchase of toys for
the Children's Homo is becoming lone- j
some for want of company. Surely
there are enough tender hearted read
ers of Thk Jersey City News to
make the fund, by their little contri
butions, a respectable one at least.
We know that the immediate and
imperative demands on their Christ
mas purses are about as much as they
can conveniently meet, but a dollar
or a half dollar abstracted from their
Christmas reserve will never be missed.
But little gifts of a dollar from this
one and a quarter from that one,
would make a good deal of Christmas
cheer among the little wards of this
admirable charity institution.
As soon as you have read this put
your hand in your small change pocket
and fish out a coin, be it ever so small,
for the Christmas l>ay festivity among
the waifs.
Just at present New York doesn't
know whether to light its streets and
kill citizens by electricity, or darken
them and let the merry sandbagger
crack the skulls of those who walk
abroad by night. The slaughter, so
far as one may judge by records,
will be about equal, but in one case
the public at large benefits by the
light, while in the other the sandbag
ger and the heirs of his victim (in case
he doesn't carry all his wealth in his
clothes) alone profit. Why should
these few be protected at the expense
of the many?
Miss Stockton gave a lunch Saturday after

The Commonwealth Water Company, of New
ark, has about completed the plant for supply

from a well fifteen feet in diameter and thirty
feet deep, situated in a gravel bed in the Felt
ville Valley. It is then pumped up through
pipes into a stand pipe on a hill about three
quarters of a mile from Summit. This stand
pipe if about 150 feet above the level of the
town, and from it the water will be distributed
through mains. It is expected that the company
will begin supplying the town in about two
The crop reports, made in response to the cir- \

The Trenton State Gazette responds to the en
quiry why the Deputy United States Special
Marshals who served in New Jersey during the
Presidential election last year have not received
their pay by saying:—"The appropriation made
by the last Congress was insufficient to pay all,
and the United States Marshal for New Jersey
neglected to send in a requisition for the amount
needed in this State. Marshal Deacon sent on a
request for the money soon after his appoint
ment, and received word from Washington that
the funds were exhausted, and there would be
uo more money available until Congress should
make another appropriation."
Mrs. Dennis Grear, of Pemberton, Burlington
county, last week accidentally rau a needle into

Monmouth Beach, reported that a schooner
laden with cordwood was driven well in shore by
Saturday night's storm, and anchored about half
a mile from land* The vessel was in distress,the

the darkness. The sea was so high that the life
savers were unable to launch a boat to go to the

o'clock Sunday morning made fast to the
schooner, which proved to be the Clifford, from
Virginia, and towed her inside the Hook.

The inimitable "Fritz" Emmet makes
his bow in "Uncle Joe" at the Academy
tomorrow night and will remain during
the rest of the week. -."Uncle Joe" is
spoken of as a fine play for Emmet's pecu
liar genius. There are four acts, which
require considerable vuriety in the
mounting. The action takes place in
Australia, in and near Melbourne, and
the scenes represented are a country resi
dence, a bachelor's chamber in" Mel
bourne, a boarding house, which
has been and is still supposed to be
a lunatic asylum, and a ranch, which is
operated by Fritz in the last act. A car
load of scenery is used in the mounting,
and the interiors are very handsome.
The story is one of the separation and
subsequent reconciliation of-Uncle Joe
and his wife,Fritz playing the part of the
"cherub who sits up aloft" to keep watch
over the misguided mortals who are
throwing dust in each other's eyes, com
ing down at timely intervals to straighten
the crooked paths.
Fritz has some new songs, and dances,
as always, with inimitable grace. There
are some tunny things between curtains.
The finding of a waif that has been left
in Uncle Joe's front hall, packed in acai·
pet bag, furnishes a climax of comedy,
and the subsequent adventurses of the
infant are quite amusing. Tib scene in
the boarding house, which Fritz and his
friend believe to be a lunatic asylum, is
immensely funny.

His Wile Dressed Him Too hliubbily
for the Grave.
A Gahvay gentleman |e])s jh London
Rare Bits the following liumoibue story
of unexpected resuscitation:—
"That many people nre buried alive is
beyond a doubt. 1 know nn instance
that I will relate to you, which I may say
happened in my own establishment, for
our huntsman, Jack Burke, was the sub
ject of it. Jack had a dangerous illness—
α fever, i think it was—ana, to nil appear
ance, died. He was duly coffined and as
duly waked, and such a wake and funeral
were never remembered in Galwuy, for
Juck was a universal favorite, a character
and a wag, and crowds came from far
and near to the burying. The bewailing
cries were so loud as the procession moved
along the road llmt they could be heard
a mile off. and by the time they reached
the churchyard ail were hoarse with cry
"It is the custom in these parts to carry
the coffin three times round the church,
after which it i» laid by the side of the
open grave. All present sink upon their
knees in prayer, the men reverently un
covering. The immediate relatives of the .
deceased close round the remains, and
for some minutes there is total silence.
The contrast between this deathlike hush
and the loud cry of the funeral wail is
striking, and ι lie appearance of the mo
tionless kneeling crowd very impres
"On the present occasion the path
round the church was rough and stony
and the ground uneaven with graves,

couldn't put our feet upon the new, clean
grave, and the dacent man not a week
inside, so there was nothing else but to
hop it.'
"Whether or not consciousness was
jolted into Jack by this 'hop' is uncer
tain, but certain it is that the dead silence
customary after laying down the coffin
was broken, not by the usual smothered
sobs, but by vehement thumpings at the
"It was quickly opened and Jack sat
up. After staring round with an air of
comical bewilderment on his astonished
friends a great coat was thrown over his
jïrave clothes and he was helped tip ou a
Jaunting car, and in this plieht was
driven home.
"The old woman who had been left be
hind to keep the house when all went to
the funeral, and who was tolling her
beads over the kitchen tire, was nearly
frightened out of her senses at- the appari
tion. There was some difficulty in per
suading her that it was Jack himself aud
not his ghost she saw.
"Meantime Jack had drained a bowl of
milk that was on the dresser, and now
looked wildly about.
" 'Is It wanting anything ye are, my
poor fellow?'said nis friends. 'Lie down
now and compose yerself. A drop of
spirits, with a bit of nourishment and a
stretch oil the bed, will do ye good after
the start ye got fluding yerself in the
coffin. There now, be aisy, do!'
"But Jack would not 'be aisy.' He
kept glaring about him and searching for
something, staggering here and there,
looking behind doors and shutters and
peeping into cupboards.
·' 'Arrah, will you get out of my way
and leave me alone, ' cried Jack. "It's
my stick I'm looking for—my stick, for
my wife, bad luck to her! when she comes
home. Aud if I don't give lier such a
lambastiu' as never mortal woman got
before my name isn't Jack Burke, that's
all ! Look here !' he exclaimed, plucking
at his sliirt—which had seen better days
while he panted with rasrç aud weakness.
'Six brand new shirts, whole and simnd
as the day thev left the weaver—without
tear or rent, patch or darn—I left behind
mej and look at the rags she dresses up
my poor carcass in ! making a fool of me
in the coffin when I'm dead and gone, ami
bringing me to shamti before the neigh
bors and country. Ah 1 the stiugy one! to
grudge the dacent linen to the boy that
owned her ! Only let me catch sight of
her. aud see if 1 dou't make her four bones
smart for it !'
"With much difficulty poor Jack's
wrath was calmed, and he was got to bed
by his friends, Mrs. Jack, in the mean
time, wisely keeping out of the way. He
never forgave her the ragged shirt—to
him the feature in the affair.
"To 'make an appearance' at their burial
is the ambition of the lower orders of
Irish. They will undergo privations
sooner than pawn or wear the sacred un
dergarment laid up to "dress the corpse
In.' Thus it was that the indignity to his
remains was so paramount in Jack's
mind, that ever alter it completely set in
the background his narrow escape from
the dreadful fate of being buried alive."

The Human Laugh.
A young man who is credited by his
friends with being a good deal of a phil
osopher penned me up in a corner today
aud harangued me as follows:—
"Did you ever study the human laugh
as an index to human character.? It is
an infalible test, me boy. Did you ever
know a man who simpered aud giggled
like a irirl who wasn't a sneak in his
heart? And, on the contrary, did you
ever know a fellow who laughed squarely
out with a good, houest roar who wasn't
the prince of good fellows?
"A shrill lough is iudicative of deceit,
aud a deep chuckle proves sincerity ami
good nature. Bv this I don't meuu that a
man with a teuor voice can't laugh as
though he was honest, or one with a bass
voice cover his iusiucerity with a mere
bellow. It's the ring that talks. If the
laugh has no ring In it you can put the
fellow dowu as a half-hearted cuss, no
matter if his laugh is loud enough to lift
the roof of the auditorium. Staud twenty
men up in a row befofe me, and do some
thing to get them all laughing, and I'll
seperate the good fellows from the Miss
Nancies about as quickly as you could get
outside of a beefsteak after a year's fam
ine."— Chiuigo Herald.

j i'lmply Spots.
Spirts of camphor (.spirits) applied to
any r?d or pimply spots is excellent If not
used>too often, and will generally remove
any redness of the nose if applied at
night. Half a teaspoonful of salt of tartar
to tlt'ree-quarters of a pint of distilled
watefr makes a good lotion to apply after
batlïïng the face in tepid water or after
using soap. When the pimply spots are
very large and obstinate it is advisable to
press them out .between the fingers and
immediately bathe the spot with not soap
and water, using for a few uays a lotion
made of weak bichloride of mercury.
