Ur. Bryan Before and After Taking
Mr. Bryan’s visit to Jersey City was
remarkably like iwhat his campaign for
the Presidency will be. It ‘began With a
(hurrah and. it ended in impressive silence.
There was somethin* pathetic about the
poor man’s exit “from our midst, as
(Mayor Hoos put it. It was something
like the retreat of the theatrical com
panies from the theatres in ithe chilly hour
after the show is over.
His piece was spoken, the lights were
put, the garlands were withered, the
dregs of the wine were stale in the heels
of the glasses, and the city had turned
aside from the toy of an hour to its
Bertou# avofitetthms. Even ■the politicians
felt the cold and clammy atmosphere and
they turned up their coat collars and kept
on the (far side of the street from the
Hotel "Washington, where Mr. Bryan slept
the sleep of the tired.
(But yesterday, the word of Caesar might
Have Stood against the world; now lies he
And none so poor to do him reverence.
lb. Charlton T. Lewis’ Humbug
It was quite Interesting, last evening,
to bear Mr. Charlton T. ‘Lewis assure the
(Board at Trade that the Cubans are unfit
to govern theirtselves. What a heresy
this would have been before the war,
when the Spaniards were saying exactly
that very thing and our jingo Congress
men and others were spouting and reso
r looting about their right to freedom and
their glorious struggle for It.
Just then, the project of stealing the
island was still latent In the breasts of
the McKinley gang. It would have been
rather hard to interest the American
people in a plain, outspoken war of con
truest. The ^houtt of independence and
Be If-government for the Cubans was a
convenient cloak for the most nefarious
design to all history.
Now, however, that the Imperial ad
snin'istration, -has its grasp on the island.
It Is In order to hire pliant gentlemen like
(Mr. Lewis to pour specious tales into the
ears of people with dhort memories.
Tbs Blunder In the Roberts Case.
The exclusion of Congressman Roberts
(from the House Of Representatives Is at
ortfee a National crime and a National
golly—not for the thing done but on ac
count of the manner of its doing.
The proper course to have pursued Was
(that recommended to the minority report
of the committee which investigated the
case. Roberts should have been sworn* in
on fthe face of his certificate of election,
just 4£ke any other member, and later
should have been expelled for Cause ae a
defiant lawbreaker.
The refusal to admit him at all sets up
tt hew precedent, so evil in. principle, so
Buwersive of Oonetitutkmel right In Its
possibdHtla*, that even Mormonlsm Itself
Is less of a danger to the nation. It Is
Very likely that the consequences will be
Sufficient within present lifetimes to make
those wftfo voted with t'he majority repent
in sackcloth and ashes.
As for Roberts himself and what he rep
resents, it is doubtful whether a mistake
has not been made in noticing him at all.
{Polygamy is bound; to disappear before
tfhe spirit of modem civilization. The only
Way to keep it alive is to martyrize it.
We believe the attack upon Roberts has
done more to promote 'Mormonlsm and
polygamy, too, 'Chan his half-unnoticed,
balf-deapietd presence in Congress coold
ever have effected. Perhaps people will
begin to see this case more rationally
when Robert® is re-elected by Ms con
stituency, or, perhaps, chosen to the
United' States Senate.
Roosevelt On the Canals.
Governor Roosevelt of New York, when
lie studies a subject before announcing
himself in regard to it—a somewhat un
usual occurrence—Is apt to form wise
conclusions and to state them convinc
ingly. His one great contribution to gov
ernmental work in the past Was his Re
port on the Personnel of the Navy. This
topic he studied exhaustively. He con
ceived an admirable plan for settling all
difficulties of the service, and he sup
ported his reedinmendatJons with such
Convincing arguments that Congress en
acted his ideas into law, substantially
without' change.
His message, just sent to the Legisla
ture at. Albany, on the subject of New
York's canals, appears to be exactly of
the same stamp as his Naval Report. He
appears to have grasped the whole sub
ject comprehensively and his recommen-.

dations have all the force of commanding
truth and wisdom.
It is to be hoped that the influences
which dominate the Republican party in
New York will not render this great
work vain. It might also be hoped that
the Executive of New JeVsey might oc
casionally show flashes of similar power.
Academy of Music.
With the matinee and night perform
ance Saturday, “His Excellency the
Governor," will end its engagement at the
Academy of Music. As it is positive it
will not be presented here again, it will be
advisable for all who have not seen it and
who enjoy a high class and brilliantly
witty performance, to. witness it this
A strong and pleasing attraction comes
to the Academy of Music, Jersey City, for
one week, commencing Monday next,
January 29, with the usual matinee. It
is "The Village Postmaster,” the beauti
ful rural drama which made such an im
pression on our theatre-goers when seen
here last. It is just completing a long
run at the Fourteenth Street Theatre,
New York. The sweet rustic simplicity
and quaintness of this play, as well as its
wholesomeness and realism are elements
which will appeal to all. The complete
New York product ion is promised with
a strong cast, led by Mr. Archie Boyd, as
“Seth Huggins.”
Vicar of St. John’s is Building on
Clifton Place.
The Rev. Elmer Forbes, the vicar o£
St. John’s Episcopal Church, is erecting
a handsome Colonial residence on the
west side of Clifton place, directly op
posite his present abode. The new resi
dence, which has been in the course of
construction about three weeks, is situ
ated on the old Brinkerhoff property and
adjoins the residence of Register George
B. Fielder, and his son, James F, Fielder.
The house is to be twenty-eight by
thirty-nine feet in dimensions, exclusive
of a twelve by nineteen extension. On
the first floor there will be a study,
kitchen, parlor, reception and dining
rooms. There will be a sitting room and
three bedrooms on the second floor, and
three spare rooms on the third floor. The
ground floor will be finished in oak, and
the second floor will be delicately tinted.
The house promises to be a very pretty
one, according to the plans. It is
situated on a high terrace with a solid
stone foundation. There will be both
front and rear yards, with passages lead
ing to both. It is expected that the house
will be ready for occupancy by May 1.
Church of the Redeemer Had an
Entertainment East Night.
A successful clipping social was held
last night at the English Lutheran
Church of the Redeemer, under the
auspices of the Ladies’ Aid Society.
About one hundred and fifty people en
joying the fun. At a clipping social pack
ages of various degrees of value are at
tached to a line across the room. A per
son desiring to take a chance pays a
small fee, Is then blindfolded and given
a pair of shears, and is allowed to proceed
to the line and 'clip oft the first article
reached The antics of the person blind
folded in endeavoring to get the most
i value for the money expended, are of
times amusing.
After the prizes had all been clipped, a
short entertainment was held. Mr.
Charles Herig sang a baritone solo. MIsjs
Emma Brinckmann recited. The closing
number was a soprano solo by Miss Louisa
Schultz, with a violin accompaniment by
George Schultz.
Coffee and cake were afterwards served.
The event netted about $50, which will go
to the church building fund.

Club Women Found Much
to Admire at Residence
of Mrs. Niese Yes
Delightful to Feel There Is One
Field Where Woman May
Work and Not Be Call
ed Strong Minded.
Very pleasant was the afternoon spent
by the Art Department of the Woman’s
Club, yesterday, at the residence of Mrs.
Henry Niese, No. 32 Gifford avenue. Thus
far this season the Art Department has
met in Hasbrouck Institute, but as it is
not yet as large as some of the other
departments, it was deemed advisable to
meet from house to house, thus promot
ing a greater -flow of sociability between
the members. So when Mrs,.Niese offered
her residence for the purpose, with tlhe
extra inducement that the Department
should view her collection of paintings,
one of the finest in the city, her invi
tation was accepted.
There were three papers yesterday on
art, an unusually large number. The
first was on “American Artists,’’ by Mrs.
J. W. McICelvey, who spoke generally of
the progress of art in this, country, say
“The history of painting in America has
been divided into the following periods:—
First, the Colonial to the timfe of the
Revolution; second, the Revolutionary,
comprising painters who were eye-wit
nesses and participators in the war for
Independence; and third, the period of
inner development which extended from
the beginning of the century to the Civil
. During the past few years American art
has certainly made rapid strides. Our
galleries are increasing in numbers. Our
schools are now giving valuable instruc
tion in art. Many of our American man
ufacturers are buying their designs at
home and doing all they can to encourage
the American artist; schools of design
are springing up all over the country.
Our magazines and books are fitted with
beautiful pictures by the American artists
of the day.
“Our Court Houses, libraries, art gal
leries, music halls, hotels and clubs,”
continued Mrs. McKelvey, “are-showing
fine samples of mural paintings. These
hardly fall short of the European average.
Among our American mural artists we
find the names of Abbey, Le Farge,
Bloom, John Sargeant, Vedder, Kenyon
Cox and Charles Turner.”
Mrs. McKelvey then turned her atten
tion to the developement of woman in art,
“There is today no sex in art and it is
delightful to know of one field where
women may work and not hear the hack
neyed cry of bass voices, ‘unwomanly,
strong minded' and so on.”
Women, the speaker continued had ever
been of importance to art as model and
inspiration, but not until 1S90 did she enter
the field on her own account. Mrs. Mc
Kelvey then mentioned a number of the
more prominent women painters, heading
the list with Cecelia Beaux,- Elizabeth
Gardner, Mary MeComber, Mrs. Shipley,
Rhoda Holmes Nichols, Ida Waugh, Mrs.
Kenyon Cox, Frances Day, Lucia Fair
child Fuller and Miss Hart, the best violet,
painter among women, whose death was
touchingly mentioned.
Mrs. George B. Wilson had the next
paper, which she concluded with an illus
trative reading of Andrea del Sarto (Rob
ert Browning), first explaining the story
of the piece.
"Care for art and sensibility to its im
pression,” said she, “is one of the fea
tures of our time. It has united Itself
with some of our best things and aims,
and it reads for us qualities and motives
of our lives and of our books. It is part
of our better culture. It quickens our
sense of beauty.
“The relation of art to character will
lead you to ask. What does art mean?
and it is here that Robert Browning will
tell you that art rests not only in the
pleasure and delight of showy things, but
he will carry you beyond that to a
sphere of emotions and ideas, interpreta
tions of which he finds in and seeks
through art—ideas and emotions that are
not imitative but are of man’s own mind
and heart. M#ny people have thought
Browning a lover of tangled problems
and that one should belong to a Brown
ing sect to understand him. That his
poems belong to the thinker rather than
the poet; that he busies too much with
the Investigations of the soul. His poetry
is a school of life; but one scarcely ex
pects ail who read good poetry to read
Browning. It appeals most to those who
have a serious care for life.
“Remember, Browning himself was a
true artist, poet, painter, sculptor, musi
cian, actor. The greatest art poem, ever
wrljten is ‘Andrea del Sarto,’ and it is
so great because the poet lived the life
of the artist and knew every varying
emotion of the character.
“ ‘Andrea del Sarto’ is a study of type
and prfheipies in art. It is a dramatic
study and was suggested by a picture
of the painter, with Vassaris study as
a comment on it.”
Mrs. Willis Newcomb had a paper on
"Current Art Topics,” in which she men
tioned a number of art exhibits in New
York, after which the department decid
ed to Visit the exhibition of American
artists in New York next Saturday, and
then adjourned to took at Mrs. Niese’s
collection of paintings. Refreshments
were then served and the ladies disband
Among those present were Mrs. Charles
Calvin Stimets, Mrs. Henry V. Condiet,
Mrs. George B, Wilson, Mrs. Henry
Niese, Mrs. Willis Newcomb, Mrs. Hast
ings, Mrs. 3. W. McKelvey and Mrs. O.
Blanchard. ___

Mr. Schwarz’s Excellent
Birection of Mendels
sohn’s Christus.
Jersey City has two thoroughly pro
ficient chorus leaders, Mr. Victor Baler
a id Mr. Moritz E. Schwarz, the one the
leader of Schubert, the other the leader
of the Lafayette Oratorio Society. Last
night it was Mr. Schwarz and the La
fayette Oratorio Society, at the Jersey
City Tabernacle, and1 whatever opinion
the singers may have had of themselves,
their work certainly pleased the audience,
nor did the audience fail in its apprecia
tion. There were volumes of applause
with encores where encore* were permis
sible, and It wras an unusually large au
dience, better than might have been hoped
for considering the night, only a few emp
ty pews to be found in the whole Church,
and they were at the very back, while up
front the audience was closely packed.
The masterpiece of the evening was
“Christus” (Mendelssohn) and opened the
programme. It is an unfinished oratorio
left unpublished- at the time of Men
delssohn's death in 1847. Unlike Elijah,
there is a narrator who sings the sacred
text between the choruses. This part of
the narrator was taken by Mr. Edward
G. Boys, whose peculiarly sweet tenor
voice adapted itself admirably to the sac
redness of the text, while chorus coming
in with the refrain of “Crucify Him,”
wavering through its ranks with increas
ing volume, brought to the audience the
picture of Christ before Pilot. It was ex
cellently done, so well that the audience
scarcely realized it was over for fully a
couple of seconds after the voices had
died out as though in the distance and the
picture had faded from imagination.
In tbis selection, as in all others, the so
ciety had one drawback. The Tabernacle
organ was in such a shaky condition that
there was danger at any moment of its
refusing to utter another note, so it had
to be abandoned, and the piano alone de
penaea upon.
Selection second was a violin solo,
Zigeungrweisen, (Savaste), by Miss
Cecelia Bradford. It has been stated that
no instrument can be made to speak like
the violin, and Miss Bradford certainly
made her Instrument respond to the senti
ment of the Gipsy melodies, expressing
through the whole the lament of the out
cast race. She received a hearty encore,
to which she responded with "Berceuse,”
"To Sylvia,” (Schubert-West), was the
next selection by the chorus. This is a
four part song and admits of consider
able shading, which fact the chorus duly
appreciated. The time and intonation in
this piece were also excellent.
Selection four, “Spring's Message,”
'(Gade,) which opened part second of the
programme, also showed careful train
ing in shade intonation and time, bring
ing out the entire seventy voices in one
softly dying note at the end. It was
beautifully blended.
Mr. Edward Boys was applauded both
before and after his first solo, "Salve
Dimorah,” (Gounod.) In this Mr. Boys’s
voice was the same sweet tenor as in
“Christus,” without the sacred halo of the
latter. In response to an encore h6 sang,
“Dreams” (Strelezki), accompanying him
Bishop Heber’s exquisite poem, “How
Soft the Shades of Evening,” set to music
by the English composer, King Hall, came
next. It was; of course, by the chorus,
and was sung in accordance with the
music, simply and to the point, with noth
ing overdone. It was one of those pieces
which‘prove how much sweetness may be
gotten out of a chorus.
Miss Ceceiia Bradford again made the
Violin speak in the bracketing of (a) “The
Swan” (St. Saens), (b) “Hejre Kati (Jer.u
Hubay). The performance of (a) evoked
the true picture, that of a swan sailing
majestically along to bubbling piano ac
companiment by Miss Boekhart, who, by
the way, was also the accompanist for all
other selections. “Hejre Kati” represents
a scene from Hungarian life. Again Mi?e
Bradford received an encore, responding
with “WiegenHed'' (Neruda).
The final selection was one well known
to Jersey City, “The Mill” (Adolpn Jen
sen), which has been set to chorus by Mr.
Victor Baler of this city, and the verses
of which are the work of Mr. Horace C.
Wait, formerly of this city. This is also
a part chorus, and was well chosen as a
finale, being of a jollier strain with a
restful effect upon the audience. This
piece was also well rendered and beauti
fully shaded.

sent said graduates with diplomas and
place 'their names on the list of those
eligible for appointment as teachers.
Miss Isabella Scott was granted one
month's leave of absence, from January
26, on account of sickness.
Director Egbert withdrew his amend
ment offered at a previous meeting to
rule 61, authorizing the superintendent on
extremely stormy days to direct the
principals to close the schools at 12:15 P.
M., and substituted one to authorize the
superintendent or president of the Board
to direct at such times the closing of the
grammar and primary departments or
either of them. The amendment was as
required by the rules laid over until the
next meeting.
President Mulvaney appointed as the
Legislative Committee authorized by the
Board at the previous meeting, Directors
Cullen, Birdsall and Berger.
Director Lewis called attention to the
fact that only $1,500 has been appro
priated by the Board of Finance for re
pairs to school buildings during the
present fiscal year, up to December 1, and
the necessity of every director exercising
the greatest economy in the expenditures
of money for current repairs, so that
there will be sufficient to make the gen
eral repairs that will b'e requisite during
the summer vacation. The emergency
appropriation for repairs of last year is
all exhausted. Director Lewis also re
ferred to the matter of insurance on the
school buildings, the burning of No. 20
having, he said, opened his eyes. The
sum of $3,000 is allowed the board for
premium on insurance and this also must
be economically used so that it may be
equitably divided among the several build
ings and some reserved in case of emer
gency. In regard to this insurance he had
requested Director Ward, who is conver
sant with the subject to make an ex
amination of the insurance held on the
school building in relation to their valua
tion and to report to the board the result
of his investigation.
Director Ward replied that he had not
entirely completed his calculations as they
required considerable figuring. It ap
peared that the insurance, on the build
ings at present is only about 80 per cent,
of their value, including furniture. The
insurance on some of the buildings is to
run until 1902.while that on the others ter
minates this year. All can be renewed to
the full amount of valuation, and. It
should be regular all along the line. As
soon as possible he will make a complete
Director Detwis said some- pretty trungs
in reference to No. 9 School which had
been impressed on his mind while attend
ing the graduation exercises there yester
day. He was'convinced' that the Presi
dent’s claim that this school, is the best
we have is well founded, and he now fully
realizes why the latter made himself
committeeman of that school, and Why lie
takes such pride in it.
President Muivaney said 'he had always
contended that No. 9 is mot only technical
ly called a model school, but that it is
really a model andi the members of the
Board would derive a great deal of pie;s
! ure and entertainment from, visiting it
} frequently. He would be pleased- to ac
company them at any time.
Director Barker also spoke in terms of
praise of No. 9, and suggested that the
members should visit all the schools more
frequently than they do to become ac
quainted with the' teachers and famlUar
with their work.
Director Birdisali contended that Schools
No. 1-1 and 16, of which, he is. committee
man, are equally as good as No. 9, and he
could not understand why all the schools
are not just as good, as they are all con
ducted on the same plan.
Director (Barker inquired if something
could not be done to spur up the Street
and Water Board to have the streets in
front of school buildings asphalted. That
Board had promised months ago to have
this improvement made but nothing has
been done.
President Muivaney stated, the/" he has
been assured1 'by the Street and Water
Board that tflris work will be done just
as soon as the weather permits.
Director Lewis 'called upon the clerk to

requires them ito visit it at least once a

Father Kelly's Parishioners Gave
Him 91,150 to Spend Ahrod.
The parishioners of Our Lady of Grace
Church, Hoboken, last "night, bade fare
well to their rector, the Kev. Charles J.
Kelly, who leaves for a trip through the
Honly Land tomorrow. The parishioners
took the clergyman by surprise by invit
ing him to the'parish hall at Willow ave
nue and Fifth streets. Here he found over
a thousand people awaiting him. In a
brief speech the Rev. Father Fitzpatrick,
first curate of Our Lady of Grace Church,
referred to the rector’s trip. He said in
“Th& good work of Father Kelly is
evidently appreciated in this parish. We
are mindful of the many spiritual advan
tages reserved from him. We all wish our
dear rector God speed, a pleasant journey
and a safe return.”
Father Fitzpatrick then escorted Father
Kelly to the stage. When the applause
ceased Father Kelly said:—
“I am deeply moved and I appreciate
your kindness greatly. When I leave on
my vacation I will take with me many
blessed memories of my six years as your
rector, which ends for the time being
tonight. It did not need the cheering
words of Father Fitzpatrick, the music
and this gathering to assure me of the
place I hold In your affection and hearts.
I have had all that a priest could desire
since taking charge of Our Lady of Grace
congregation. I rejoice in the success
that has come to the parish and the in
crease of religious fervor. Wherever I
may be in foreign climes you I will re
member always in my prayers. When we
meet again I hope it will be together
as tonight.”
When the rector had concluded his feel
ing address Father Fitzpatrick presented
him with a check for $1,750. "This was
raised by subscription among your parish
ioners,” said Father Fitzpatrick, "and
they ask you to accept it in order that
you may enjoy all the comforts you do at
The following musical programme by

Col. Bryan Given a Bather Difficult
Just as Col. W. J. Bryan was about to
leave the Robert Davis Association for
St. Peter’s Hay, on Wednesday night, a
tali lank individual pushed past the police
and stepping up to the Boy orator said:—
“Excuse me Colonel, but I would like
to ask you a question.”
"Well sir, what is it?” said the Colonel
“Well you know a man in Nebraska bv
the name of Stewart?”
“Nebraska is a big State an dthere are
many Stewarts there. Could you tell me
his Christian name anl the town he lives
“No,' ’replied the other, “I don’t know
it or where he lives, but he’s in the hard
ware business.”
“I am afraid I don’t know him,” return
ed the Colonel.
“Oh, well sir, if you ever run across him
tell him I wanted to know how he was
getting on. My name is McBride.”
The Colonel walked to his carriage with
a broad grin on his face.
