question once again is:—Will the sa

There would be no question, no
doubt, if Mayor Wanser had clone his
duty. If lie had said one word to
show that he meant to stand by his
ante - election pledges, the saloons
would be shut up tight. The side
door and upstairs dodges would be
abandoned. .The law would be ob
But Mayor Wanser has been in of
fice long enough for the Board of Fi
nance to have ordered the first pay
ment of his handsome salary of
$410.60 a month, and not only has
he failed to say one word voluntarily,
regarding the scandalous and habit
ual breach of the law, but further he
has dodged aud evaded all enquiries
ner has fallen back on a dogged si
lence to escape committing himself.
But there is no escape in silence for
Mayor Wanser. This is a cuse where
silence unmistakably gives consent,
and Wanser stands pilloried before
the people as the protector of Sunday
rum, the friend and patron of chronic
law breakers, if lie does not take up a
bold position of hostility to them.
It may be said that in none of his
campaign speeches did Candidate
Wanser say anything about the Sun
day liquor traffic. This is a mean and
contemptible evasion, a tricky device
to get away from a fair responsibility.
Tlie Colonel’s backers talked loud and
much about Sunday rum. A lurge
part of the support given him was
given on the understanding, openly
and publicly expressed, that he would
stop tlio Sunday rum traffic. He nev
er repudiated that idea when he
wanted votes. He consented to it
then, and if there is anything in honor
or truth lie is bound by it now.
But whether or not he spoke openly
about Sunday rum, the Colonel in
every speech he made promised to en
force the law. Boos he think it is
enforcing the laws to encourage, the
police in winking at Sunday sales of
In every speech of his campaign,
Colonel Wanner promised to perform,
if elected, the duties of his office faith
fully and consistently, without fear
or favor. His duties are laid down in
the Charter of the City, Chapter 424
of the Laws of 1871, Section 21. The
Mayor will liud the section on Page
1,105 of the volume of “Session Laws.”
It reads thus:—
A nd be it enacted. That the Maj or shall see
that the laws or the State, and the ordinances of
the city are faithfully executed therein; and he
shall be authorized to recommend to any Board
of the City Government such measures as ho
may deem necessary or expedient for the wel
fare of the city; he shall maintain peace and
rood order therein, and In case of a riot or
tumultuous assembly, he may take command of
the police force of the city to suppress it; in
;as« of persons violating, or being suspected by
aim of violating, or being charged upon oath or
tflli mation with violating any oriinlnal law of
dlls city, or penal ordinanoe of said city, he
lhall possess the same power and authority
which justices of the peace have in criminal
mscs; ho shall sign all licenses directed to be
issued by the Board of Aldermen and all bonds,
IbligatUms or other evidenoe of indebtedness
isrued by the city: and the Mayor shall also b
ex- officio, a member of all the Boards named is
this act, except the Board of Aldermen and the
Board of Public Works.
On taking office, His Honor took an
oath to perforin these duties, and
tlie form of that oath is proscribed in
Section 11 of the same act. Wo rec
ommend His Honor and citizens in
general to read it. That they may
not have any trouble in looking it up,
here it is:—
And be it enacted, That all elections shall bo
by ballot and the person or persons receiving
the greatest number of vote: for any ofllce shall
be elected to that office and the officers elected
by the Senate and General Assembly in joint
meeting shall be commissioned by the Governo r
and every person elected or appointed to any
office named in this act sbali, before bo enters
upon the duties of his ofllce, take and subscribe
an oath before the City Clerk, who is hereby
empowered to administer the same, that he will
faithfully discharge the duties of his office,
which oath shall be filed in the office of the
City Clerk; the City Clerk shall take his oath of
t ofllce before the Mayor.
Now if Peter F. Wanser can read
these two clauses of the law, in virtue
of which he holds the high and hon
orable office of Mayor and draws the
tolerable salary of $416.06 a month,
and still find it in his conscience to
extend tlie aegis of his toleration of
the law breaking, decency outraging
Sunday sale of liquor, then we say he
is a humbug and an imposter, that he
ran for tlie Mayoralty on false pre
tences, and holds it in virtue of a
fraud compared with which ballot
box stuffing is venal.

tion. We freely expressed our opinion
of- what would happen were he
elected. Everything we foresaw and
foretold is coming true. His office is
being made a petty campaign bun
combe factory for the Presidential
contest, and all real attacks on public
evils are suspended in order that the
votes of the rumsters, the policy
dealers, the crap shooters and the
poker dive keepers may be available
for the party of moral ideas in the
hour when they are most needed.

Vaudeville at the Academy,
It behooves every lover of comedy and
music to look in at the Academy of Music
during the next week and also on Decora
tion Day, May 30, to see the Metropolitan
Vaudeville aud Comedy Co., one of the
very strongest combinations seen iu Jer
sey City this season. The opeuiug play
is John L. Toole’s latest Loudon success
the f uuuiest comedy ou tile stage, entitled
’’In a Fog” with a cast far beyond the
ordiuury. If, utter reading the names of
the euieitaiuers, you can resist the temp
tation to see the show, you must certain iy
possess mote than mediocre aversion to
good performances. Among the talent
are Paddy Murphy, the "Only”; Phil
Mack, Louie Medley, Judsou & Brynes,
John Annstroug, "Edwina” iu her great
and sensaliouul grotesque dancing. Miss
Tiny Arnold, the dainty soubretlc; Miss
Edith I .a Balle, the murvellous couiiulio,
only 17 years old, and the wonderful
ventriloquist. "Williams” .preemlueutly
the greatest urtist iu ms Hue.
Jupiter Uell’s Success.
That “Jupiter” has made a success is
best proueu by the fact that Palmer’s
Theatre, New York, is crowded from the
orchestra to the gallery at every perform
ance. No opera produced lu years has
beeu so favorably received as “Jupiter.”
While the book is exceedingly fuuuy, it
possesses a very iugenious plot. Junau
Edwards’ music Is bright, original aud
catchy aud coi.tains some concerted num
bers more meritorious aud ambitious
than have beeu seen in any American
written comic opera. Digby liell has In
“Jupiter” two of the most cougeuial
roles that have ever fallen to the lot of a
cmuediau. He has selected the very best
comuauy he could flud. Laura Joyce

The Pequannock Made An
Excuse to Raise Rates
in Newark.
But I is lid This is Because the
Passaic is Being Washed
Out of the Pipes.
Special to the Jersey City Seres.
Newark, May 20. 1893.—For three
weeks uow the city of Newark has been
blessed with a supply of Pequanuock
water. In that time not one drop of Pas
saic water has been pumped into tbe
reservoirs, and although at times the
water lias presented ratner a muddy ap
pearance, people claimed that It was bet
ter than tbe old.
Since the water was turned on about
three weeks ago. it has been running
steadily into the Belleville reservoir, and
also imo the one at Chatham street, but
It bus had to be uuinoed from the latter
to the high service reservoir on South
Orange aveuue. The spur that is to con
vey the water directly from the main pipe
line to the hign service reservoir by grav
ity Is uot yet completed, nor is It likely
that it will be for some time yet.
The flow of water into tlie Belleville
_-_i.. ~C., .. A .1 TT urns 9.0(100 000 mil
lous, which was sufficient to meet the no*
mantis of the city. A reporter visit
ed Belleville yesterday and went
to the old primping station on the
river. The pumps were motionless, but
steam was up, the fires wore banked, and
everything was in readiness to start at a
moment's notice. A regular watch is
kept on duty dav aud night, but ail they
have had hud to do for three weeks is to
catch eels and catfish that find their way
into the intake. _ ,
An official of the Board of Works said
last night that he was uuable to state
when the new water supDlv would be iu
spected, as the Water Company had as
yet expressed no desire to submit the
work as finished, aud is waiting 10 have
the defects remedied before inviting an
That tho Newark aqueduct water was
not quite as good last week as it was the
week before Is due to two causes. One
was the rainfall throughout the water
shed and the other was a thorough stir
ring up of the sediment iu the city mains
by blowing off at hydrants lu various
parts of the city. This work of cleaning
out the l ipes is being systematically done
by districts, aud will coutiuue for several
weeks or uutil all of the loose sediment
from the Passaic supply is washed out
aud swept into the sewers.
When a fire plug is opened the water
comes out with the hue of coffee, and u
minute or two may elapse before it shows
at all natural iu color. Tne men work
away from the roservoir as they blow off
the hydrants and clean every section suc
cessively as they go along.
For several successive Mondays the
dirty condition of the water has been re
marked throughout the city, and a reason
has been asked for It. The answer given
by an employe of the Water Board is that
the blowing off, combined with the extra
ordinary demand for water for factories
aud family washing on Mondays, stirs
up the old sediment in the pipe, ilo said
that it was a nuttier which would remedy
itself in a few days.
Ill# quesuuu was usifceu last wees. wu.y
the Clifton avouue pumps were constantly
r.iuuiug if the water from the Pequau
nock was supplying both reservoirs under
greater pressure thnu is absolutely neces
sary to supply the city. The answer is
that the pumps are necessary now
to supply the special high service in
that part of the city which is higher
than than the South Orauge reservoir.
Ultimately the three-foot pipe ruuuing
from above the Belleville reservoir out of
the four-feet coudult, will supply this
district of the city, but it does not do it
now because Newark has not had permis
sion from the East Jersey Water Com
pany to open the big connecting valve
which was attached to the three feet pipe
at Bank street last February. When this
is opened the speciul high service will
cense to exist aud pumping will bo stop
ped, as the pressure will then be regu
lated by pressure valves on the gates at
South Orange avenue reservoir.
President James Smith, Jr., of the
Street aud Water Board, said last night
that when Mr. Herschei told him re
cently that the wuter comp auy was ready .
to give the Newark engineers a chance to
test the conduits he took it for granted
that the Board conld go ahead, but subse
quently Mr. Herschei changed his mind
about the mutter, and when Engineer
Jacobson went to the comnany office to
confer with Chief Engineer ilerschel the
latter told him that the company was not
yet ready to have the tests begun. In
view of this statement, Mr. Smith said
ust. night, nothing furthor had been done
iu regard to the settlement of the differ
ence between tUo city and the East Jersey
Water Company. He said that he would
request that a committee from the Com
mon Couucil joiu the Street and Water
Board in an effort to meet the East Jersey
Wuter Company and liateu to auy sug
gestions which might be made. Mr.
Smitb said that lie made u pleasant
visit to the reservoir Bites ou Thursday
with Commissioner Hailuti. Dr. Wright
son ami Engineer Jucobsou. They
found that ttio leak nt Clinton itntn hud
not diminished auy, and that there were
twelve feetof water just off theduui. The
water was within two and three tenths
feetof the spillway. Nothing seemed to
have beeu done by the company at this
place since the last visit.
Mr. Smith said that at Oak Ridge a
little work was being done, but tlie com
pany was not building a gatehouse over
the chamber. The men were merely
building a coping around the top of the
cement which surrounded the lop of the
chamber. He lunched when asked about
the statement In an Interview with Mr.
Whitlock iu the Advertiser last week,
that \he city was now paying the East
Jersev Water Company a certain sum pet
day for a certain supply of water. He
said:—“If Mr. Whitlock said that he Is
mistaken. We are not payiug for water
by the milliou gallons, ami what is more
to the point, we never will.”
Iu speaklug of the communication from
the Hoard ot Health to the Water Board,
advocating thepurchaso of seven mllesof
land alongside the “pipe-line.” Mr.
Smith said that it was probably mis
quoted, as the laud which the suggestion
referred to was on the banks of > he Pe
quanuook River. In regard to the con
ference with the witter company. Mr.
Smith said that it wits not likely that it
would be held until the pipe line was
tested by the city engineers.
There has been considerable stir
throughout the city about new regula
tions made by the Water Board iu rela
tion to the use of water for street aud
garden sprinkling ana tbs enforced use
of meters for motors running fans and
other machinery. It was Haiti during the
week tliut all the talk about increase of
rales wan "nonsense,” and that the only
ch .uges were in the time of paying and
the dropping of the discount for prompt
The dates for payment will hereafter
be in Slay and November, which adds a
month to the last hult-yearly bill. Rates
have been raised, however, on street
wasners, lawn sprinklers aud other uses
of hose. Instead of a flat rate of $3.50 per
year for a housp for each hose connection,
the rate is now $5 for a twenty-live foot
iot and $10 for a corner lot or a double
lot. Then, top, the restrictions in force
in other cities nave beau udopted here,
and the hour* for using tile hose are limit
ed to from bix to uiue a. m., and from
four to eight p. m. For a surreptitious
use of a hose a flue of $3 is provided, aud
the water may be cut oil from the house
until the flue Is nald.
As regards water metres, many water
consumers will probably And them valu
able ecomizers ou water bilis. House
keepers complalu that they are charged
fixed rates for every tap iu the house aud
ofteu cannot- get water on au upper floor.
If they ran the water through a metre
they would have to pay only for what
was consumed. Many cousumers who
some years ago paid the estimated rates
for service iu water metres, found their
bills reduced from one-half to two thirds
niter metres were nut in. A metre can
not register too fast, and if it is out of
order at all the consumer gats the benefit.

The success of the entertainment is
largely due to Prof. Minor Paddock of the

Order of Services.
The new edifice erected under the aus
pices of St. Triuitatis Evangelical LiUtb
erau Congregation Bowers street, be
tween Sherman and Webster aveuues, is
completed, aud will bo dedicated tomor
row moraiDg with appropriate cereuiou
ies, and its formal opeuiug made the
occasion of special services during the
day aud each evening of the comiug
week. It Is one of the most imposing
nnd costly church buildings o! this sec
tion of the Heights. It is built of a fine
faced brick with pretty stoue trimmings.
Its dimensions are 100 feet In depth, by 42
feet broad. The design is Gothic. Its
steeple reaches to u towering altitude,
and makes tlio church a cousplcious
landmark that is clearly discernible for
miles around. The basement is arranged
in a spacious cheery Sunday school room
with a lofty ceiling, and the floor slopes
from the entrance to the platform, so that
a speaker stauding upon it cuu be readily

sirable advantage thut perhaps cannot be
found in the plan of construction or any
other Sunday school assembly room iu
the couuty. It was oue of the pet ideas
of the pastor, aud in this as in all the
other features he has incorporated in the
plan und appointments of this model
church, thole is everything that the
Blcilltfd architect could think of to make
it comfortable, complelo and beautiful,
aud fully up to the latest improvements.
Iu the rear of the Sunday school room
Is the pastor’s cozy and commodious
sanctum. An apartment for the use of
the primary department, a church parlor,
and a kitchen furnished with a range,
cupboard, and all the needful accessories
for festal occasions. Up stairs access to
which can Pe had from the street through
an iuvitiug vestibule, aud broad stairs
with a convenient ascent, is t he handsome
auditorium that can seat 400 There, as
iu the Sunday school room, the floor has
a very perceptible decent toward the
front, which makes every seat available
for seeing aud hearing. 'The choir gallery
is placed directly buck of the pulpit, and
contaius the superb new organ that cost
S3,500. The chancel, altar aud pulpit are
liuished with solid French walnut, richly
carved ar.d polished. The pulpit desk
is a massive specimen of the sculptor’s
art and is much admired by all who have
seeu it. It was presented to the parish bt
St James’ Lutheran Church of New
York. The same chuich also douated the
leeturn, two armchairs, aud other fur
niture for tire pulpit aud a marble
hai tlsinal font. The windows also great
ly contribute to tue beautiful effect of
the Internal appearance of the church.
Each one, glazed with stained glass, pre
sents iu gorgeous colors aud unique ar
rangement, a perfect picture of some iu
cideut of sacred history. One of the
prettiest windows was donated by Pastor
Hater and his wife. Prominent among
the other donators were the teachers of
the Sunday School, membeis of the
Ladies’ Society, Dr. A. Zaeller, Mrs. J.
H. Lutzeu aud J. Kaiisch.
The programme for tomorrow Is as fol
lows:—At ten o’clock In the moruiug the
