A11 business communications should be addrossel to th*» Cm PcBLismxo Company; all letters lor pul* tteeilon to the M&uaglug Editor. _____ THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1900. This paper is Democratic in principles and is independent in its views on all local questions. Tonight’* Water Meeting. Tonight the taxpayers and citizens generally are expected to attend a meet ing in the City -Hall to receive informa tion concerning the proposal to buy the 60,000,060 gallon water plant from the Jer sey City "Water Company at a price of *7,606,000, for which proposition a special election Is to toe held- on Tuesday next. The -wisdom of calling tonight’s meeting Is self-evident. Those who have to pay for the plant surely ought to know what they are buying. On Tuesday next, they will have an opportunity to say whether they will buy the plant or not. The only trouble atoout meetings of tonight's character is that when momen tous questions, like this water supply question for instance, are involved the man whose interest is most affected gener ally stays at home. He Is particularly llaibla to stay Indoors tonight and for a cogent reason, ift knows that the city officials, who have such a problem to •olve. Stave arrived at a conclusion and all that remains for him, and in fact all be can do, is ratify their decision at the polls. At a meeting, like that to he held to night, the word of the opposition is In variably In the majority, and it is only fair to assume that tonight everything that can possibly toe said by the opponents of the purchase of the 50,000,000 gallon plant will toe said, while practically there will be no agitation in favor of the proposition excepting what emanates from the city officials themselves. Stripped of all technicalities, which few understand, and certainly not the average taxpayer, the question for tonight’s meet ing Is: Whether or not Jersey City intends to remain a tributary to a private cor poration for a period of twenty-five years, with a continuous Increasing deficit in the water department?' One thing is absolutely certain and can not be too strongly emphasized: It is that if Jersey City touys water dally by the million gallons the water rents now Charged In the city must toe raised. There’s the rub. The Lentz-Woolley Office Grab. The Republican ringsters, who think I they see a means of furthering their ends toy the abolition of spring elections, die very hard. (Having failed In all their efforts to eeeure the Introduction of their Iniquitous measure applying to the entire Btate, they now want to try a grab at the city pap only. Much of the opposition to the bill, as planned, came from the towns and' town ships, and the ringsters have an idea that J If they bring In a bill, applicable to cities only, they will be able to get It through. It Is said that they have such a measure In course Of preparation and will take It to Trenton next week. Their chances of success with such a bill are no brighter than they were with the old one. If the measure is toad for the towns and townships It la toad for the cities and should receive no consideration whatever. This fact Is recognized by a majority of the law makers and there is little reason to believe that the new bill Will ever appear before either House. Ccpid'g Bad Shot. Love is still 'Lord of All, even In the New Jersey Legislature. •All the adverse criticism and sarcastic remarks, of the newspapers of the B ate failed to do what the cunning little God accomplished on Tuesday. He Induced the Assembly to take up a measure, debate It thoroughly end finally pass It. Perhaps If Assemblyman Grove? had not fallen a victim to one of the little fellow’s darts Jiis . New Brunswick redistrictlng bill would still be occupying a little plot In the Municipal Corporation Committee s cemetery, where It properly belongs. To Moke Prison Pleasant. If the bill which Senator McCarter In troduced on Tuesday, at the request of the prison reformers, should become a law, State Prison will be robbed of many of Its terrors. No longer will the con vict be compelled to wear a striped suit or shuffle around the prison enclosure In the historic lock-step. He will be able to deluge the Court of Pardons, the Gov ernor, Judges of the Courts and others In authority with all sorts of petitions In which he can make all manner of charges against the prison officials, as the letters are to be sealed and the keepers are not to read their contents. No longer will the prison rules have any restraining .in fluence over the convict, as he Is not to be punished for any Infraction thereof Without a hearing. This must be cheering news to George Valentine, the wrecker of the Perth Am boy bank, who has been in the sulks ever bince his gas stove, canned goods and - - other luxuries were taken away from him. From all the reports that have come from the Trenton State Prison, there Is plenty of • room for reform in the management of that Institution. But they have nothing to do with the de tails of garb and the walk of the pris oners. Can He Do It? Assemblyman King of Passaic proposes if possible to keep this State free from the disastrous consequences of one phase of Ajgerlsm. He proposes to keep out of 'New Jersey embalmed 'beef of the type that played such havoc with our volunteers for the Spanish war. This he hopes to accom plish by a bill which he Introduced In the House on Tuesday, providing that the date when a can of tinned goods was filled shall be plainly stamped upon the can. Hr. IClng Is of the impression that the danger In canned goods lies In the length of time they have been put up and he thinks his bill, if it becomes a law, wifi stop the practice of palming stale goods on the public for freshly canned articles. • Clammy Legislation. The sole reason for the election of men to the Legislature from the counties along the Delaware Hiver, south of Cam den, seems to be that they may Intro duce oyster and clam bills. Almost every measure which emanates from these gentlemen relates in some way to oysters or clams until one is excusable, for believing that every man, woman and child in that section Is dependent upon the oyster or the clam for a living. The chief grievance which these good people seem to have is the non-resident oysterman. who, they declare, is robbing them' every day by his depredations on the-oyster beds of this State. This year the people have declared war even on the non-resident who is willing to pay for what he gets, and a hill has been introduced providing that no oyster beds shall be sold or leased hereafter to any one who has not his home in the State. How About Some Artillery? A heartfelt cry comes from Governor Leary, of our new possession of Guam, for a library. "What's the matter with sending one of tNew Jerseys travell.ng libraries on a trip to the far off Pacific. AMUSEMENTS. ' Academy of Haile. “Hello Bill,” at the Academy of Music has made a most decided hit, and is at tracting large audiences. It is full of fun and cleverly played by a splendid com pany. The'specialties introduced are all of the highest order, "Hello Bill" is what you want to see. When a play has been continuously be fore the public for eleven years, it cer tainly shows that it must have a great deal of merit and be a great drawing attraction or it could not have lived half of that time. It is seldom that a play attains such a record as has ‘Little Lora Fauntleroy.” When it was first produced it made a great sensation and has always been one of the best paying attractions ever put before the public. It is one or the few plays that appeals to all classes. It is not only interesting to the regular theatre-goer goer, but the sweetness and purity of the story attract a great many who seldom if ever, attend the theatre. Of course its principal charm is the part of “Little Lord Fauntleroy," which is, always played by a child under the age of nine years. W^hen the dramatization of “Little Lord Fautlsroy" was made by Mrs. Frances Hodgson-Burnett, who the book, it was thought that it would bo impossible to ever have it pro duced, as the part of the child was such au unusually lung one; everybody sup posed that no one could be obtained tnat could not only study such a long part but successfully portray it. It is said to be the longest part ever written with the exception of that of Hamlet. The play will be presented at the Academy with an excellent cast and complete in every de tail The part of the little earl will be played by Nellie Prebble, who is but nine years of age and a wonderfully clever child. There has been such a big demand for seats, especially for the matinees, that the management has deemed It wise to announce a special matinee for Monday, Lincoln's Birthday, as the schools will be closed on that day, this will enable parents to give their children an op portunity to witness the performance.

The Royal is made from pure grape cream of tartar, and is the embodiment of all the excellence possible to be attained in the highest class baking powder. Royal Baking Powder costs only a fair price, and is cheaper at its price than any similar article. Samples of mixtures made in imitation of baking powders, but containing alum, are frequently dis tributed from door to door, or given away in grocery stores. Such mixtures are dangerous to use in food, and in many cities their sale is prohibited by law. Alum is a corrosive poison, and all physicians condemn baking powders containing it.

PRAISE FOR LEADER DAVIS He Told the Two Clubs to Do all in Their Power for the Water Purchase. i I It was a jolly gathering of Democrats that assembled last night at iambaon’s Hall, Arlington and Common;paw av enues, to participate in the euchre touma- \ ment between the Eighth and Ninth Ward j Democratic Clufcs. The honors of the evening were carried off by the Eighth warders, who fought their battles in a most successful and vigorous fashion. The victory thus attained gives the Eighth ward members a chance to crow over their fellow Democrats. Representative’ Democrats from all over the city were present and many took part in the tournament. About eighty members of the Ninth Ward Club reached the scene of battle i about eight o’clock, and were welcomed by a committee from the opposing forces. Twenty teams were selected to represent each ward. The committees from each , club arranged the details. Play began ] about nine o’clock. Each table played live > games, the best three carrying off 'the j honor. For two hours the players cut and ; trumped until every game was played. The contests were exciting at times, when players got lone hands. Chairman James C. jplarke acted as 1 master of ceremonies. Mr. Robert Davis ‘ was appointed referee. He tallied the games and made the announcement of the j scores. The Eighth ward scored fifteen of : the twenty games played. Refreshments were then' served, after which cheers for each elu;b were given ; with a will. Chairman James C. Clarke announced that a programme had been arranged for»the members. Including b8th j vocal and instrumental soios and recita- ! tlons. | "A few years ago,” said he, “such a) thing as a strong Democratic Club in ! this ward was thought impossible. The [ impossible has been accomplished and we i are now strongly intrenched in a hereto- ! fore Republican stronghold, thanks 'to 1 our leader, Robert Davis.” Mr. Davis thanked the members for their appreciation, and said he was pleas ed to be among them. He then referred to the water question stating that he thought it for the interest of all tax payers that the water works be pur chased when completed. The entertainment then proceeded. For two hours thereafter there was much merrymaking. The event was termed a success in every particular. In the near : future, a tournament will be held in the 1 Ninth Ward, when the representatives ' from that ward will endeavor to even | matters. The players from the Ninth Ward were: James Blllington, chairman: A. A. Cable, H. Rohlfs and John J. Ryan, committee in charge: P. O'Connor and Thomas Kel ly, James Kiernan and Thomas Dundon, M. A.

Inclement and unseasonable weather has not been without its effect upon the Odd Volumes. Colds predominated among the members at yesterday's meeting held at the residence of Mrs. H. V. Condict, No. 8 Gifford avenue, and the entire first half of the programme had to be omitted, mostly on account of the Illness of those booked to take part. The president, Mrs. Cecelia Gaines Holland was unable to be present, and the vice president, Mrs. John A. Walker, presided. It was the first of two "Fiction Days," and Kipling was the author under dis cussion. Very little was paid afoout his prose, as the first part of the programme was to hav.e been devoted to that sub ject, but Miss Lilian Pitcher, gave an ex cellent criticism on Kipling poetry, dwell ing principally upon his style. She also read “The Absent Minded Beggar," by way of illustration. In the general discussion which follow 1 ed, Mrs. Frank Cavalli read “The White Man’s Burden” and ‘"Bchs,” both cl which was in turn duly discusred. Then came “Kipling's- Women, ’ Mrs. , Talbot Chambers dealt with this. She read ; an extract on the subject, and a.dis-eus | Eton followed in which the Odd Volume !

WAGES J GASH .'t **• ■ » • Factory Inspector Ward Had a Conference With the Governor. CONSTITUTIONALITY OF THE LAW Voorhoes Says That Has Nothing to De With It^ Company Store In vestigation. [Special to "The Jersey City News.” I TRENTON. Feb. S, 1900.—'The exposure of the evils of the company store system and' the agitation by the working classes for enforcement of the law requirirg pay ment of wages in. cash have stirred up State 'Factory Inspector John C. Ward. He has promised that he will do some thing to have the cash payment law en forced. The toilers in factories and mills and mines who suffer from the exactions of the company store and seldom get a dollar in cesh are awakening to the fact that there is a law that would relieve them from their burdens if it were en forced. Already complaints are beginning to flow into the State Factory Inspector's office and the demand from the working men that they shall get their wages n cash Instead of store orders will soon make the Stokes law of 1S99 a measure to be feared by the ”pluck-me” store pro prietors' instead of a dead-letter statute, to be ignored and sneered at. State Factory Inspector Ward hod a conference with Governor Voorhees yes terday. The- Governor told the Inspec:or that complaints hadbean made to him j about cash wage payment bill. Mr. Ward’.* excuse about the supposed unconstitutionality of the law was dismissed as having noth ng to do with the ease. When a law Is on the I statute book it stands as the law of :he State and State officials are bound to obey it and to enforce it if, as in the pre-ent case, It is their duty to do so. The Fac tory Inspector disclaimed any intention of | questioning the law himself, but said he had been informed that it would not stand a test. In answer to the Governor's inquiries Inspector Ward admitted that he had made no attempt to stop the company store system of paying workmen in store orders, punch books ana "shin plasters,” instead of cash, as required by the Stokes law'. He said he had not' considered it his duty to investigate the wage-pay ment methods in vogue at the industrial establishments throughout the State, but was waiting for some one to make a complaint and back it up with evidence. The Governor suggested that some way should be found to have the law enforced and the Factory Inspector promised to i give the matter careful attention. Although the Bureau of Factory and Workshop Inspection is an important de partment of State Government, a person could hunt through the State House for hours without finding it. Finally • he •would be directed by some Capitol attache to climb the stairs of the ladies’ gallery in the rear of the Assembly Chamber and knock on a door labeled "Municipal Corporations.” In this room, set apart for the use of a committee of the House, Inspector Ward has his desk. The chief inspector is big in frame and bulk, with a face that shows good nature. He is slow of speech and suave of man ner, and is not a man to be hurried. He talked freely to a correspondent about the cash-Vage payment bill and, the reasons it had never been enforced. “I don’t think I should be blamed for this condition of affairs,” said the fac tory inspector. “I have never understood it to be my duty to go out and collect evi dence that the law was being violated. It is true that I was Informed that 'the law wouldn't hold if a test was made, and fir : that reason 1 wanted to get a case wnere ! the evidence was conclusive before start I ing a suit—I didn’t want to- go into court ; and get bowled out, for that would make it all the harder to enforce the rest of the factory laws. I have asked; Attorney General Grey about the law. He does r.ot care to give an opinion as to its constitu tionality. As regards enforcing the law, he seemed to take the view that complaint should be made by some aggrieved work man, and that when this was presented to me I should commence proceedings against the employer.” Inspector Ward laid great stress on the fact that no employe had made complaint that he was forced to deal at the company store instead of getting his wages in cash. He admitted that it was very probable that this was due to fear that the com plainant would be discharged by the em ployer. Still the factory inspector did not consider that he or any of his six salaried deputies should interpose between the s-orekeepirg employe, and the suffering workman. His attention was called to the fact that in other departments the laws were enforced by State officials without waiting for private citizens to make com plaint. The State Dairy Commissioner does not wait until the grocer’s customer, who has been swindled by a sale of oleomargarine for butter, makes a com plaint and presents evidence that the law has been violated. The Dairy Commis sioner has his deputies at Work all the time gathering evidence of violation of the law and bringing suit against the offenders. The same is true of the State Board of Health and other boards. The Factory Inspector sends his depu • ties around to 'inspect industrial estab lishments and enforce the laws against child labor and non-sanitary conditions in workshops, but the cash-wage payment law is left to gather just while the com pany store continues to grind the work ingman down in a siave-like existence. “The only complaint 1 have had oo far." said the factory inspector, “was a letter from the wife of a workingman at Flor ence, She said her husband did not get his wages in cash -and they were com pelled to bijy everything at the company' store. I wrote her that if she would make an affidavit and present evidence to sus tain the charge I would take action in the case.” The State factory' inspector said he in tended to do something- further in the matter, bu't he was not prepared to say what line he would proceed on. It has been the policy of the company storekeping employers who are squeezing btg protits out of their workmen- to make a strong bluff that the Stokes law would no more stand a test in the courts than a sieve would- hold water. But this bluff has been called By the opnions expressed by several prominent lawyers, Governor Voorheos being one. that the law does- nut conflict with the- Constitution. The cash-wage payment law was intro duced by Senator Stokes at the- demand of the glassblowers and their organiza tion approved it. The Green Glassblow ers’ Association, however, has not made any move to have the law enforced and this has given rise to a rumor which has reached the State House, but which no one seems to care to father. The rumor is that when the big. glass strike was settled last year there was an un derstanding or tacit agreement between representatives of the unton and the manufacturers that no attempt would be made to enforce the cash-payment law and the company stores should continue in operation. It may be that this report was put In circulation by the emplove-s to discount-any effort, that might be made to invoke State aid in enforcing the law. local a-i«l CLIMATIC Nothing but a local remedy or change of climate will ure.
