Just as Was expected, the Bryan meet ing proved a great “demonstration so for as numbers and shouting were con cerned. Its value as a polities! straw 4s best in dicated by the list of prominent Repub licans who were present in the audience. Mr. (Bryan made a fluent speech. At times his language had a certain crude eloquence. Hfis delivery was good. On ttie whole it was an attractive perform ance. The best part of the speech was that which referred to the Philippine Islands. Mr. Bryan pulverized the Republican case very effectually. It is worthy of remark, however, that he had no programme of his own, at least, that he unfolded none. (He left the meeting totally in the dark as to what he would do if he were Presi dent. The talk eibout trusts was entertaining. It Was the sort of evasive chaff that tickles popular audiences whtie it means absolutely nothing. The man does not live whd could tell, after hearing air. Bryan, where he drew the line between useful and obnoxious capitalization, or what his remedy was for the alleged evils of the fcrusf system—unless indeed it j might be utter State socialism. What iMr. Bryan said about silver coin age was so absolutely foolish that we do not believe he (believed it himself. Cer tainly no one who knows simple arith metic can be deluded by such trash. This mfining finds Mr. Bryan just where he was yesterday. He is tolerably sure of the Democratic nomination, for President and absolutely sure a± the polls of the most crushing defeat on record if he gets tt. Is SUrer the Only Handicap? The “World." which is on the fence, as usual, has an article, addressed to Mr. Bryan, and showing him that, in order to be elected President, he muslt carry Neiw York. The next link in the chain Is that to carry Now York, he must rfive up "free silver,” la there yet time for him to do this? If he should repudiate his monetary fallacies cow, would the people believe in his sin cerity. Would they not think he was epeaMng In Wad faith either before or after the dhange? And would they elect « man whom they suspected of bad faith? And, then, is silver the only thing that la against Mr. Bryan? Do a majority of the people consider him a safe man to make President? A Horrible Example. In today’s "Evening World,’’ Mrs. Hetty Green has an appeal to her fellow citizens to give their girls a business training. By all means, let us bring them up to be like her. _ The Chinese Sunday School. The young girl who was found dead in On opium Joint in Philadelphia was a good j girl until in a fit of moiibid zeal she took ' charge of a class of Chinese Sunday school “scholars." . Who shall appraise the awfui responsi bility of those who permitted her to make this more than fatal mistake. The warning te a terrible one to indis creet zealots. “Johnny” Rankin's—Luck. “Johnny” Rankin of Elizabeth, the bosom friend of Governor Voorhees and of John Kean and Prank Bergen and the other Union county apostles of Republi can virtue, will get the stationery con tract for the Legislature this session as usual. There were two other deluded spoils seekers who somehow or ot^ier got the Idea that they could overcome Johnny's pull and get the plum away from him. One was ex-Assemblyman Charles Dun can of Newark, who must have had some assurances from somewhere or he would not have gone into the contest, his ex perience in the Legislature having taught him better. The whole matter has a funny look, to j say the least, as Duncan’s bid was $646 , and Rankin's $642.75, while that of the; third bidder, Madison & Co. of Newark,'; who evidently had no Information to bid on other than that contained in the specifications, was $775. Ever since the Elizabeth coterie has been in the ascendency,'Rankin has al ways managed to be the lowest bidder for this contract by just a dollar or two. Pfeiffer and Drummer. Ex-Senator George Pfeiffer of Camden. Who was recently ejected Chairman of R©YHL MCH Baking Powder in 1900 The strongest, purest, most efficient and wholesome of leavening agents. Not lowest in price, yet the most economical; in 1900, as in the pust, indispensable to the work of the pastry cook. The New Year brings prosperity almost unsurpassea in the history of the country. For every one there is money enough to buy that to eat which is pure, sound, good, wholesome. Why should we use cheap, impure, unhealthful arti cles of food? There is no economy in them; tfiey endan ger the health, they may cost life. There are reported almost daily cases of sickness caused by eating cake, puddings or biscuit made with the cheap, alum baking powders. In all articles for food buy and use only the best. The good health of the family is of first consideration. Alum is used in baking powders because it is cheap, costing less than two cents a pound. It is a corrosive poison. Think of feeding it to children 1 Yet the manufacturers of well-known alum pow ders are actually denying that they contain alum. ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO., 10P WILLIAM ST., NEW YORK. the Democratic Committee of that county, has started to work to put new life into the Camden Democracy. Senator Pfeiffer has not been active in politics of late, but he now proposes to take again an active hand ip the struggle. In those days when the Senator was director of the Democratic campaign in Camden, the Republicans did not have everything in their hands as they have now. There used to be Democratic Sen- ' ators arfd Democratic Assemblymen from i j Camden in the Legislature and the ma- ^ Joritles for the Republican State candi dates were not so large as they are now. I There is every reason to believe that 1 this desirable state of affairs may be brought around again by the energetic labors of Senator Pfeiffer. The Senator ' is an expert at drumming up voters and marching them to the polls to vote the : Democratic ticket. Haw York “Press” Soonndrelism. j The New York "Press," this morning, j makes a strong plea for the Long Branch j gambling houses and ill conceals Its in- ! famy under the guise of an interview with a Monmonth politician, whom it makes say:— Opposition to the Long Branch club houses (the local name for the gam bling. dens) will lfill that resort be yond resurrection if continued. The hotel men and wealthy cottagers pay nine-tenths of the tax of the town ship, and if they are not to have the rights accorded others farther inland you will see them pulling up stakes and departing. Long Branch will cease to be Long Branch when it isn’t the free-and-easy Long Branch of today. What delicious nonsense this wo*uld be if it were not so iniquitous! How is it that Elberon, Allenhurst, Deal, Asbury Park, Ocean Grove, Belmar, Point Pleas ant and the other summer resorts, from Sandy Hook to Squan, flourish gaily as they do If gambling dens and brothels be necessary to the existence of a seaside resort? All those places are devoid' of Long Branch’s crying evil and yet they are in a prosperous condition. When the G. O. P. was fighting the racetracks, for purely political purposes, did the "Press" ever consider the dis astrous effects of closing up the Mon mouth Park track? Oh. no! It was vir tue at any price in these days. Now the "Press” is the advocate of the professional criminals who subscribe to the G. O. P. campaign funds. Truly as Eloquent Silence. Senator Pitney has condescended to explain bis mysterious excise bill. He says that identically the same bill is now on the statute books, with the exception i that the term of the Commissioners is j three years Instead of five, as specified in his bill. He also makes some remarks about similar measures having been before the Legislature af previous sessions and hav ing failed of passage from causes. On the i main subject as to who wants the term | of the Commissioners increased and why j ifie bill should be introduced at this time, upon whieh the public would like some information, Mr. Pitney maintains a dis creet silence. AMUSEMENTS. Academy of Hosie, The highest royalty paid for any dramatic play in the past decade i» re ceived by Captain Marshall for his com edy. “His Excellency the Governor,” now playing at the Academy of Music, it is j over double what is being given for any play now running in New York. No writer since W. 8. Gilbert has been able to write such briliant dialogue. The play of rural types which was seen here this season and which will come di rect from New York, where it has been playing a successful engagement of five weeks at the Fourteenth Street Theatre, at popular prices, will play a return en gagement at the Academy of Music for one week, opening January 29, with the usual Wednesday and Saturday matinees. Promises are made that ft will be given in every detail as it was during its recent i run in New York. The theatre-going peo- ' pie of Jersey City and the surrounding ! towns will have an opportunity of seeing ; a better and stronger production than | when the play was seen here earlier in : the season. For the benefit of our reader* i who are not familiar with "The Village j Postmaster," we will say the play tells a j simple story of every-day life in a small j New Hampshire town, introducing as j principal characters, plain country folk. | The plot. too. is simple, as it reveals a j very pretty romance. The Same strong i east that interpreted the characters dur ing the recent successful run at the Four tenth Street Theatre will be seen- here during this engagement, led by Mr. Archie Boyd, the skilled character actor, as Seth Huggins, the village postmaster. The prices during this engagement will be for the evening performances, $1, 75c., 50c., and 25c.; for the matinees, 75c.. 60c. and Sc. The engagement commences Monday evening, January 29. Bon Ton. "The Gay Masqueraders.” bedecked In all that is new will hold carnival tuts sea son with the same joyous eclat that has characterized its presentations in previous seasons, and will be presented 'by a com pany of players second 'to none oefore the public in this style of entertainment. Among the performers to be noted are Carlos & Vouletti, novel gymnastic ar tists from Orrin Bros.’ circus in the City of Mexico; Swift & Huber in their new est musical turn, founded on new and original ideas, introducing the famous singing dog Biootch; Hanley & Jarvis; Dally & Yokes; Brown, Harrison, Brown, comedy trio; Miss Bessie Stanton in the Parisian sensational transformation and. original light poses. The extravaganza, -entitled ‘A Day at the Hotel Waldorf.1’ and the burlesque, entitled “The Philippines,” serve to in troduce an elaborate array of gorgeous: costumes and a number of novel effects, as well as some beautiful scenery. A large company of farce comedy girls add to tire picturesqueness of the performance and assist in marches and dances. American Theatre. Vociferous bravos, enthusiastic plaudits, lnsistenierecaUs—principals and directors trooping again and again before the cur tain—combined to make of “At the Lower Harbour” produced for the first time in this city at the American Theatre last Monday night, the greatest sac cess ever won by the Castle Square Opera Com pany. The Metropolitan press' have with one accord agreed in the public's distinct ly favorable verdict. It is well deserved, for this exceptional organization has never given a more finished and. artistic performance nor been heard in a work containing ihore qualities certain of popu lar sudcess. There is nothing hackneyed about “At the Lower Harbour.” The work belong to the same class as “Caval leria Rusticana” and “I’Pagliacci,” but the story possesses greater interest and is more thrilllngly dramatic. In the domi nant theme a mother’s love for her chits dren is sounded an exquisite note of uni versal appeal. Through-out the opera the flow of melody is of that sort satisfying even to the man who “doesn’t know on© note from another." The gems of the opera are In the second act. Luigino’e boat song, redolent of sunshine and or<en air breathes the haunting melody of the melody of the Italian folk songs. The ;>• termezzo between the second and third acts Is’certain to become the popular suc cessor of the favorite "Cavailerla Rusti cana." The Interpreting company de serves great credit for its excellent sing-, ing and its spirited and intelligent acting. The stage pictures were wonderfully effec tive the Neapolitan atmosphere being carefully preserved. Since Monday night the audience* have tested the capacity of the theatre and so great has bean the de mand for seats that the management has been compelled to extend the series of performances for an additional wee it. The alternating casts will again include Miss Linck. Misses Kronold and Carrington, , and Messrs. Stewart, Pruette, Lavies and; Belcher. To . lend variety to the second j week Von Suppe’e charming conceit “Ten Maids and no Man,” will be presented as a curtain raiser Employing a cast of light opera favorites. I BULLEN—MILLS.

HOME HOTEL ASSOCIATION. Arranging for an Anther's Reading : and Musicale. The Home Hotel Association, or Mary ' Fischer Home, as it is now known, held I an interesting meeting yesterday after- j noon at the apartments of Mrs. E. P. i Terhune (Marion Harland), Hotel Al berts, New York. This association, It will be remembered, started the New Jer sey Branch last spring, very much on the plan of the New York Home, and In June last ft house was leased at Tenafly, N. J., where 'artists of the brush, pen or any of the professions might make their home at a nominal board, without re gard to sex or age. It is the intention of the association to eventually buy this home. Its chief attention is, therefore, devoted to the subject of raising funds.

ODD VOLUMES STUDY ART Interesting Meeting Held Yes terday at Residence of Mrs. Case. , The Odd Volumes entered upon their study of art yesterday afternoon at the residence of Mrs. George W. Case, No. 30 Kensington avenue. The president, Mrs. Cecelia Gaines Holland, was unable to be present, so Mrs. John A. Walker, vice president, occupied the chair. Mrs. Charles Calvin Stimets had the first paper. It was a criticism of Tolstoi’s ^What te Art.” Mrs. Stlmets first gave a brief biography of the author, who was born August 28, 1828, and wrote his first •work at eighteen years of age. His love for the poor, for truth and sincerity were ■mentioned. IMrs. Stimets further said that his work, “What is Art?” breaks down all rules of ■modern art, holding that beauty and pleasure must be eliminated before art can be known. The definition of beauty, Tolistoi holds, Is not to Ibe found—it is in expressible. Art is a human activity, and unless a work transmits the highest re ligious fedling it is not art. In the open discussion which followed Mrs. WalkeT remarked that it would seem as though Tolstoi only wanted the useful and not the beautiful; he would cut down the flowers. Mrs. Harry Day reviewed' “A Century of American Art.” She spoke of the Colonial art, and the first American artists, of ■Benjamin West, Trumbull and a number of others. She told of the founding of the Academy of Fine Arts and of the found ing of the Academy of Design. Mrs. Denntston had the second paper in the American art discussion. She spoke of the Western movement as having stopped the Colonial art and started landscape work. She spoke of the Boston School as one of color, and compared the landscape painting of the brush to the landscape painting of the pen in poetry, mentioning the artists of this period between the years of 1828 and 1878. Miss Doremus had the. third paper in the discussion, covering the third period in American art. She spoke of the sculp tors and tendency of art in *78, when America was too busy forming a nation to pay much attention to art. She spoke of Hiram Powers, of the founder of American sculpture, of Horatio Green, Thomas Crawford and others. Miss Crowen reviewed "How to Enjoy Pictures” (Emory), She spoke -of the im ■pontance of art as an educator and spoke of a number of famous pictures by Rem brandt and others which should adorn one’s rooms, "Modern Painting,” by Richard Mother, was reviewed by Mrs. Edward Dunn, after which refreshments were served and the Odd Voluniee adjourned to continue their studies February 7.

The funeral was marked by the large attendance of prominent men, who gath ered from all parts of the State to pay, their last tribute of respect to one of New Jersey’s most distinguished states men.
