SATURDAY, JANUARY 13, 1900. J7iis paper is Democratic in principles cad is independent in its views on all local questions. Erwin. Trinmph Again. Mr. Erwin’s Intense popularity In his own party was again demonstrated, last evening, by his almost unanimous defeat for the Important office of Temporary Secretary to the County Committee. He should run for poundmaster next year and make a record. A Boomerang. The advocates of the Harrison site for the High School must have cried, ’’Save us from our friend,” yesterday, when they read Mr. Egbert's remarkable docu ment In cold type. No more convincing proof that Mr. Hul shixer and the Financiers were In the right could have been framed. Physician, Cure Thyself! The morning papers report that AVilliam Jennings Bryan has advised Goebel of Kentucky to quit. The Usual Result. There appears to be trouble of a finan cial nature in Bergen. For the first time in the history of the county, the Collector Is compelled to announce that he has not sufficient money on hand to pay bills due. This state of affairs leads the Bergen County "Democrat” to demand, ‘1Who is responsible?” The paper sets forth that the taxes have been paid more rapidly than here tofore, but that the expenditures seem to have been made in advance. Let's see? Don't the Republicans run things in Bergen County these days? Bad for tha Horton Bill. The outcome of the fistic encounter of Mr, “Joe” Choynski and Mr. "Kid” Mc Coy, At the Broadway Athletic Club, last -jeventag, will cause many to think that Chairman Odell was not so far out of the way after all, when he said that exhibi tions of this nature were “fakes” and the results all arranged before the fights took place. However correct Mr. Odell’s statement may be, it is certain that the affair, last night, drove several nails into the coffin of the Horton bill. Has Been Called Down. No stronger denunciation of the unpar liamentary and Czar-like action of Speak er Jones, on Tuesday, in denying Mr. Benny his just rights could be wanted than the apologies which the Republican press throughout the State Is making for him. Here is the way one of the leading or gans of ‘his party speaks about his at tempt to out-Reed "Tom” Reed:—“He will improve with age and the reasoning powers of the Republican leaders. When he checked Mr. Benny he scarcely had conceived all the rights to be conserved. He won’t do it again.” Lo the Poor Indian. The Republican Indian of the First •Ward, who attempted to stop that well ; built and well oiled machine, the County Committee, by simply getting in its way, must feel, this morning, like his Western prototype, who declared war against the locomotive. When the first railroad was laid across the Continent, the Indians greatly resent ed the Insolent manner in which the loco motives went rushing through their hunt ing'grounds with shrieks of defiance. So one old chief determined to put a stop to. the insolence, and, arraying himself in all «his war paraphernalia, he took his Stand in the middle of the tracks, in front of the rapidly approaching train. As the engine came on with a shriek of defi ance, the old chief set up his war song and brandished his club. The next min ute the tribe was picking up the rem nants of their big chief, and the locomo tive was rapidly disappearing in the dis tance. So this morning the members of the Young Republican tribe are busily en gaged in gathering together the political remnants of Big Chief Johnny Erwin, and the machine is running on smoothly, with the smiling face of ‘ Ed” Woolley at the “throttle.” Republican Slaves. Tf anything were needed to show the inter slavishness to boss rule of Hudson Ctfubiy Republicanism, the proceedings of the County Committee, last evening, would fill the bill. It is not the mere fact that Edward W. Woolley was re elected Chairman. This was all right. -Woolley is just the man for the place. But the disgraceful thing was that the opposition did not even dare put up a decent fight. All the fellows who had t been shouting at caucuses went down on their knees and crawled. Really, it was a disgusting spectacle. The Nomination of “Bill” Bottle. In discussing the Governor’s first batch of appointments, the “Tribune" gives way to an ecstasy of approval. One of the nominations which meets with its most rapturous endorsement is that of the ex lobbyist—or is he "ex”—Bill Bettle, for a second term as Banking Commissioner. The "Tribune” says he "has proved fn every way worthy of the confidence of the people, whose Interests he safe guards.” Oh, yes, quite so! His record is an open book, and two pages in it are the failure of the Middlesex County Bank at Perth Amboy and that of the Union County Bank at Rahway. The Senate will have no difficulty in confirming Bettle. A Prison Reformer. Major E. J. Anderson, who is named for another term as Supervisor of the State Prison, also receives a “glowing tribute.” The “Tribune” eulogist some what incautiously says of him:— To him quite largely is due the show ing, to which Governor Voorhees re fers in his message, of a decrease in the cost of maintenance and a consid erable increase in the income of the State Prison. The showing to which Governor Voor hees alludes is coupled with one to which he does not allude, and which is in the nature of a showing up. It consists of the testimony taken by a commission of inquiry, held last summer, to determine the responsibility for the escape of con victs. It showed an astonishing condi tion of corruption and mismanagement In the State Prison. The favored convicts had sofas, oil stoves and canned delicacies in their cells, and some of the guards were sleeping in their watch towers, with alarm' clocks to waken them up at certain hours when they had to report that they were on duty. Those Eyler School Escapes. One trouble about the Industrial School for Girls, at Trenton, is that there is a faction among the employes hostile to the Principal, Mrs. Eyler. Can it be that this fact in part explains the escapes from the institution, which have become so frequent of late? AMUSEMENTS. Academy of Mtisio. "Because She Loved Him So" is utl- | doubtedly the best of the many good things Charles Frohman has given Jer- ] sey City playgoers, and it is doing a splendid business at_- the Academy of Music this week. Tonight the last per formance will be giveni At the Academy of Music, Jersey City, Dick, by his second wife. Dick has just returned home after an absence of three years. Major Manning and his daughter, Rose, with his ward, Eleanor McBride, are visiting Sir Philip. There is also staying at Sir Philip’s the Hon. Standish Fitzsimmons, a friend of Francis. It is explained to Sir Philip that Francis was wounded in k duel in defending a wom an’s honor. Later, it 1s discovered that he was stabbed by a Gypsy girl. The girl follows Francis to Ireland and tells her story to her brother Dick. Francis has run heavily in debt, the loans hav ing been obtained through Fitzsimmons, an adventurer. It had been arranged be tween Sir Philip and Major Manning that Francis should marry Rose. Rose de termines to learn something of Francis’ character, and Induces her father to in troduce her as his ward, and Eleanor McBride as his daughter. Francis pays court to the ward, supposing her to be the heiress. Sir Philip has great love for his eider son, Francis. He considers Dick unworthy of his affection, and ac cuses him of attending the secret meet ings of the Revolutionists of '98. This leads to a quarrel between Dick and his father, and Dick leaves: home, keeping his whereabouts a secret for three years. Rose, instead of falling in love with Francis, gives her heart to Dick. Fitz simmons learns from Major Manning that Rose is his daughter. He keeps the secret to himself, and tries to Win the heiress while Francis is making love to the ward. Fitzsimmons -hates Dick, for he fears that his presence may ruin his plans to secure Rose. To avenge him self on Dick, and to secure a large sum of money, he proposes to Francis the ab duction of Dick’s sister, a child of-seven; she is to be given to the gypsies and held for ransom. He tells Francis that they, can secure the ransom, share it with the gypsies, gain the honor of hav ing rescued the child, and Francis can pay his debts in London. The abduction is frustrated by Dick, who visits the gypsy camp in disguise, and learns from Mary MueMahoni, a gyp sy girl, tho true character of Fitzsim mons. Fitzsimmons determines to draw Dick into a duel. The duel, however, is brought about by Dick, who publicly In sults Fitzsimmons. It took place in the early morning adjoining the residence of Sir Philip. After being twice disarmed. Fitzsimmons appeals to Dick t’o spare nis life. Dick consents, on condition, that Fitzsimmons shall leave the country and keep secret all that has transpired during his stay at Sir Philip's house, to which Fitzsimmons agrees. Dick’s uncle, a rich old bachelor, makes him his neir, and Major Manning and Sir Philip consent to the marriage of Dick and Rose. One cf the dramatic incidents of t,he perform ance is the .skillful duel with foils be tween Mr. Oleott and Mr. Maichien. Dur ing the successful run of the play in New York fencing clubs were in nightly at tendance, so scientific is the Ixmt. int nlay will be- given with the original-cast and scenery used’ during the successful run of over three months in New York last season. Matinec-s will be given Wed nesday and Saturday. The changes in the prices at the Acad i cmy of Music have resulted in, greatly i:i 1 c reased receipts.

Bon Ton Theatre The American Burlesquers, who created such a sensation last season in the bur lesque line, will be the attraction at the Bon Ton Theatre, Monday next, January 15. with usual matinees, headed by that celebrated comedian, W. B. Watson, styled the Sehomas Levy. He has sur rounded himself with a clever collection of artists. The performance given is first class In every particular. The show opens with a satirical burletta, entitled ‘The Benjamin Picnic,” in which Mr. Watson exhibits his power of mimicry in PAINE’S CELERY COMPOUND Strengthens Racked Nerves. Adjt. S. W. Groomes, 140 East Jones St,, Dayton, Ohio, writes: “ I had great relief from Paine’s Celery Compound last December. While living in Columbus I took a heavy cold that resulted in the grip. I suffered intense pain with my head for three months. No medicine seemed to do me any good until I began using Paine’s Celery Compound. All the suffering in my head was soon gone, and I have Celery Compound alone to thank for my cure.” Buffering has its first effect upon the nerves. When the hody is not sustained by nerve energy^ indigestion, slow circulation of the blood, and an impoverished system result. the Hebrew line. The girls <are pretty and shapely and the comedians amusing. During the progress of the burlesque new songs and sensational dances are intro duced.

THE JOKE ON CHAUNCEY OLCOTT _ Unconsciously Packs a House With Enthusiastic Deadheads. “Speaking of getting the worst of it," remarked Mr. Tilton, who is conducting a tour of Mr. Olcott, yesterday, after a friend had told him a hard luck story. I recall an instance of hard luck that is hard to beat. “We had sold the in— and naturally, the local manager was ‘humping’ himself to get even, and lay down a few cases. There was a young ladies’ seminary in the town, and the manager evolved a scheme of giving away a autograph album to the scholars, or stu dents, I suppose I should say. When f arrived there was a bunch of albums piled up in the office, and the manager at once unfolded his plan, which was for Mr. Olcott to inscribe his name in the first page. Well he is a good fellow and to help him out I took the books to Mr. Olcott, who was playing in a neigh boring town, and by using a little diplomacy about being waited upon by the faculty, &c., he consented. "So after the performance, with Mr. Pltou on one side of him, handing him the books, and myself on the other side of him taking them away, sat poor Chauncey, the sweat, it was awful hot, pouring off him, writing and groaning for dear life. It’s no fool of a job to write your name 300 time on a hot night. “When the end came Mr. Pitou did not stop, but kept handing him the same al bum, after turning a page, until the poor fellow had filled two of those albums full, and then he threw down his pen ar.di swore he’d write no more even if the manager lost his theatre. Mr. Pitou kept the two albums which Mr. Olcott had filled and I went back to- and deliv ered the balance. The night of the per formance came—big house, big hit, etc. Mr. Pitou went back info Mr. Olcotf’9 dressing room, and solemn as a judge, said:— “ ’Chauncey, you 4cnow we were playing on a certainty tonight, and that any passes given out by us were to be paid for?’ “ ' Of course,’ said Chauncey. “ ’Well,’ said Pitou, ‘here are eighty passes, each for two, and sighed' by you. So I have to charge you with $160,’ and he laid- down before the astonished Chauncey SO autograph album leaves', each one bearing the words, ‘Pass two. Chauncey Olcott.’ He had added the ‘Pass' two.’ “Well, there was a hot time in that •town that night, and' it cost a good per centage of that $160 when Mr. Olcott ac knowledged ‘it was on him.' But he said afterwards that ’Pftou nearly lost his star by heart disease.’ ” CAPT. NUGENT IMPROVES. Police Captain Thomas Nugen t of the Ocean, avenue station, who has been ill for the past week with a severe cold, was slightly improved yesterday, but is still confined to his bed.

LABOR UNION CAVILLING Protest Against Employment of Union Men on Free Library Building. The United Building- Trades Council of Hudson County, through its secretary, sent the following communication to President H. Lembeck, or the Board of Finance:— “By instructions of the United Build ing Trades Council of Hudson County, your attention is called to the fact that tin and sheet metal workers on the new Public Library are mainly non residents | of this city or county; in fact residents : of this city and union men have been denied employment thereon, because they : were not connected with a New York i trade union. j The local organization of said craft m | Jersey City have entered a protest in this j Council because such condition exists. “The Council desires therefore your in fluence and influerifce of the Finance Board to correct this matter and would 1 be pleased if you advise them as to any : t action you may' take.” “I move you, sir, that this matter be | referred to the Trustees of the Free Li brary,” said Commissioner Midlige. ! “I think so, too,” added President Lem j beck, and It was agreed. ! One of the Free Library Trustees in ! cotnimenting on the kick, said this morn | ing:— j “We have no knowledge whatever who i the men are on that or any other part of ! the new library buil'ding. How should we? j The contract was awarded to Norcrcss j | '-Bros., who, we do know, however, are j only employing union men. When it comes to the details of the work we have no legal or moral right to interfere in man ! ner or form, and if we did Messrs. PJor i cross would' very properly resent it and ! tell usi to mind our own business. The firm is doing first-class work for ’the city and employing only the best union work men. "Wlhat more can any city official de . mand?” DON’T MIX THE MAYOR. [From the “Evening Journal’’ of yes terday.] Mayor Hpos is master of the situa tion in a double sense, and the Board of Street and Water Commissioners will do well not to antagonize* him un necessarily. The Mayor declares that he will not authorize a special election for the purchase of a seventy million plant. He should not be asked to do so. Chapter 391 of the laws of '95 simply requires and authorizes a vote on the purchase of the work required under | the contract. The people, therefore, may I vote upon the bare question of the pur ! chase of the works now under erection, j It is not necessary to complicate this question of the purchase, by the injec tion into it of a dispute as to whether | the works shall be a fifty or seventy million gallon plant. This matter may be settled between the Mayor and the i | Board of Street and Water Commission- j ers, it is evident that the Board of Street j and Water Commissioners will have to re- j ! cede from its position. Given the popular approval of a pur- ! chase, the Board and the Mayor can j agree afterwards with the contractor 1 upon either of the options in the con- j tract. The purchase of the works should not be jeopardized by any unnecessary dispute as to the magnitude of the plant to be purchased. UNITED STATES GRAND JURY Prominent Jerseymen to Try Government Cases.
