WEDNESDAY. MAY 9. 1900.
77iut paper is Democratic in principles
tmd is independent in its views on all local
questions.
The loe Trust.
Certainly one of the most brutal forms
of trust that has yet appeared is the Ice
trust. As an oppressor of the very poor
It Is only second, if second, to the coal
combine. In our climate, ice is an essen
tial of comfort and health, an absolute
necessary of life. Any ‘'Industrial” or
"financial" combination which operates to
raise its price or restrict Its use is so dis
tinctly the enemy of the people, so abso
lutely opposed to civilisation that It should
be stamped out with unhesitating rigor.
Bryan and Silver.
The fatuity which pervades National
Democratic councils Is illustrated daily by
the New York “World,” which keeps re
iterating: warnings as to the impossibility
of carrying New York on a 16 to 1 Issue.
The “World” very plainly shows that
without New York a Democratic Presi
dent cannot be elected: with New York,
such an election is possible. In three out
of the six most recent elections a change
in the vote of New York would have
changed the result. Indeed It is hardly
necessary to ring the changes upon this
topic. No man in his senses can speak of
a Democratic victor- as possible in 'No
vember without the vote of New York.
But 1* New York is necessary, what Is
to be thought of those leaders who are
forcing into prominence an Issue which
means certain defeat in New York? Take,
for instance, Mr. Bryan himself, proclaim
ing In loud tones that the doctrine of free
silver coinage :3 as prominent as ever,
that It will not down, and that if he be
nominated he will give it the same im
portance as any of the other Issues of the
hour. Can anything equal in blind folly
be thought of? Is it no: equivalent to the
abandonment of the campaign?
Perhaps it i3 not so much matter what
Mr. Bryan says. He stands for so much
that is unreasonable and Impossible that
one or two more offences against good
sense will not particularly harm him. He
has no hope, no chance, anyway. But it
is amazing and discouraging to see other
men. who should be sane in thought and
expression, siving inferential endorsement
to his follies by talking of his election on
the imperialist or other questions, the
silver one being disregarded Os unim
portant, whatever he may say. It is
strange that It would not occur to them
that this precise way of looking at Mr.
Bryan is the most ruinous of all to his
standing as a candidate. The idea of say
ing to the people, “Vote for him in spite
of what he says. What he says is of no
consequence,” Is so ridiculous in itself that
it serves to show exactly how far
Democracy has gone on the road to com
plete demoralization.
There is only one way In which victory
can be made even conceivable. It is by
throwing overboard not only silver but the
man who stands for it. If this is not to
be done, we must only turn up our coat
collars and prepare for another long
winter.
Worthy of Bettor Pay.
It Is to be regretted that Attorney Gen
eral Grey has been obliged to declare
unconstitutional the laws of the last Leg
islature which increased the salaries of
the Adjutant General, the Quartermaster
General and the Road Commissioner. It
has long been a disgrace to this State
that, with all the extravagance of its
administration under Republican conduct,
such small salaries should have been paid
to two such efficient public officials as
Generals Stryker and Donnelly. It was
no excuse that both these gentlemen pos
sessed means and had no need for the
salary. They did excellent work, and the
laborer isjust as worthy of his hire to
day as he was nineteen hundred years
ago.
Twelve hundred dollars a year is a
ridiculously low salary for the work and
responsibilities of the two offices, and the
Legislature only did an act of justice
when it increased the salaries to $2,500.
Our New Shell*.
Emperor William of Germany has an
other cause to be jealous of this coun
try. Word comes from Washington, this
morning, that an American naval officer
has invented a shell which pierces the
best Krupp armor plate as though it was
soft wood.
Extraordinary precautions are being
taken to keep the composition of this
wonderful shell from foreign govern
ments, so that when the time comes we
will be In a position to riddle the ships
of the German Emperor just as Dewey
perforated those of his little Majesty
Alphonso XIII.
Of course the Kaiser will not like this,
and he may go to war with us to make
•us use up all those shells, even if It
costB his entire fleet to draw them from
our guns.
Idiotic Criticism.
The Trenton "State Gazette,” this
morning, has a conniption « over the
hanging of Clifford, yesterday. In har
m
rowing language it describes the terrible
agony the poor man underwent through
the bungling of the hangman, and it be
rates Sheriff Ruempler for this. It de
clares that unless the Sheriff can improve
upon his work as a hangman in the past,
he should employ an expert to conduct
the next execution.
This is about as near right as the
'State Gazette” ever gets things relating
to Hudson county. The truth is that, al
though Clifford was strangled to death,
he was unconscious from the moment the
bolt was sprung and suffered no more
than does a man whose neck is broken.
Then, again, it was not Sheriff Ruempler
who is responsible for the last two bung
ling executions in this county; Van Hise,
the expert hangman, whom the
"Gazette” calls for, is the person to
blame.
KERAMIC ART EUCHRE.

Pouch Mansion, Brooklyn.
One Infallible receipt for raising money

tists held another big euchre yesterday
afternoon at the Pouch Mansion, Brook
lyn. There were sixty-seven tables, all

from Jersey City.
The game was governed after the fash
ion of all big euchres of the kind. There
were twelve rounds, at the conclusion of
which the prize winners were admitted,

points, into the prize room, where about
sixty-five pieces of china, hand painted by
well known artists, were on exhibition.
Two ladies won eleven games and were
allowed first choice; eight, one of whom
was Mrs. Charles Van Keuren, of this
city, won ten games, and were allowed
second choice. Mrs. Van Keuren drew a
very handsome placque painted in Jacque
roses, by Oullche. Other ladies from this
city who won prizes were:—Mrs. David B.
Day, Mrs. Morse, Mrs. Hellerman, Mrs.
Scott and Mrs. Green.
Among those present from Jersey City

EXCELLENT MUSIC IN HOBOKEN.
Organist Marshall Gives a Recital
in St. John’s Chnroh.
The parishioners of St. Paul's Protest
ant Episcopal Church, Hoboken, were
given an opportunity to enjoy some first
class music last evening. Harry Lord
Marshall, the church organist, gave his
third organ recital of the season.
The programme was diversified. Han
del's “Concerto” was probably the most
attractive number. It was handled su- .
perbly by Mr. Marshall, who was obliged
to respond* to an encore. His most am
bitious performance was a fantasia on
Welsh airs into which he put feeling, ex
pression and exhibited exceptional
technique.
Miss Nettie Bertholf, soprano, and Mrs.
B. J. Field, baritone, assisted in the re
cital.
FATHER SHEEHAN CELEBRATED MASS

St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, celebrated

scholar in the public schools shall con
tribute five cents. By the last report of
the State Board of Education the average
number of people between the ages of five
and twenty years at the schools was
about 300,000, and this would give in round'
numbers a sum of $15,000 for the service.
It will initesrest those at the head of the
movement to know that the Secretary of
Navy has approved of the specifications
for the building of the New Jersey.
Tht general dimensions, &c., of the ves
sel are:—Length on load water line, 435
feet; breadth, extreme, at load: water
line, 76 feet; trial displacement .about
14,650 tons; mean draught at trial dis
placement. about 24 feet; greatest draught
full load, about 26 feet; total coal bunker
capacity, 1,900 tons; coal carried on trial,
900; feed water carried on trial, 66 tons;
speed not less than 19 knots.
The armament will be as follows;—Main
battery—Four 12-inch breech-loading
rifles of fortycalibers in length, eight 8
inch breech-loading rifles of forty-five cali
bers in length, twelve 6-inch breech-load
ing rapid fire rifles of fifty calibers in
length. Second battery—Twelve 3-inch
breech-loading rifles (14 pounders); twelve
3-pounders, four 1-pounders, automatic;
four 1-pounders, single shot; two 3
inch field guns, two gatling guns, thirty
automatic guns.
The vessel will have twin screws. The
engines will be of the vertical twin screw
four cylinder, triple expansion type, of a
combined indicated horse power of 19,000.
The steam pressure will be 250 pounds.
There will be twenty-four boilers of the
straight water tube tynp, placed in six
watertight compartments.
All 14-pounder guns will be protected by
2-inch plates of sufficient area to form
efficient shields to the crews working
them. The barbettes for the turrets for
the 12-inch guns will be 10 inches In thick
ness, except where they are inclosed in
the casemate, where the thickness will be
reduced to 6 inehes. The turrets for the 12
inch guns will be 10 inches in thickness,
except where they are inclosed in the
casemate, where the thickness will be re
duced to 6 inches. The turrets for the 12
inch guns will be 10 inches in thickness,
except the port plates, which will be 11
inches in thickness.
It is expected that the contracts will be
given out within the next two months
and work begun as soon as possible.

MUSIC DEPARTMENT.
Season Closed Yesterday
With Excellent Pro
gramme at Resi
dence of Mrs.
Ferris.
The Music Department of the Woman’s
Club closed its season yesterday afternoon
with an interesting social at the residence
of its Chairman, Mrs. Garwood Ferris,
No. 820 Montgomery street. There was a
good attendance and an excellent pro
gramme of music, recitation and essay.
A quartette chosen from the Glee Club,
and consisting of Mrs. John Dandrine,
Mrs. George Howland, Miss Frost and
Mrs. George H. Hough, opened the pro
gramme with a Neapolitan selection com
prising a medley of songs of all nations.
Mrs. Gilmore sang a Norwegian lullaby
to piano accompaniment by Mrs. Beach
Slocum, and Mrs. E. C. Dutcher gave the
address of the afternoon on "Musical In
struments of All Nations." After dwell
ing a few moments upon the various in
struments used for the different nations,
Mrs. Dutcher said:—
“What professional whistler could ac
complish anything with her whistle with
out the use of some musical Instrument,
or how could the professional In the Del
sarte system proceed with her wonderful
movements without the soft tones of the
zither to aid her in her work? Thus music
seems to be the expression of some senti
ment, the filling of some void, the satis
faction of some longing, than which there
is nothing else adequate. As artificial
flowers are used instead of and copy af
ter nature. Thus every musical Instru
ment, If the detectives were put upon its
track, will locate it somewhere in na
ture’s vast domain.
“Hence musical instruments subserve
their highest ends, when accompanying
the human voice in vocality. Never are
the great organs on either side the stage,
with the two hundred1 orchestral instru
ments facing the singer quite so much
at their best, as when the great voice of
the prima donna breaks forth in glorious
sound and glides into sweet cadences In
their company.
"The pong in the throat of a bird seems
to be lust the thing, for its swift motion
from limb to limb of these spring trees,
with their baby leaves and how in the
meadow could the lark soar or fly without
his song and how forever are modesty
and humility crowned bv the song of
England’s nightingale, the bird1 that
sings in the shade and in the night. Musi
cal instruments .then, are to the voice
and the soul .that which the gold band is
to the diamond its setting. A goldsmith
mav conceal or exnose his diamond, so the
rkllled Instrumentalist may humiliate and
destroy, or glorify and crown the singer
and the soul.
“The marvelous canacity for goqfi is set
forth most graphicallv in David’s control
over Saul. Tn anger. hatred and revenue,
the kinsr h»ld aloft his Javelin to hurl it
tnrough the heart of th» shenherd. When
David plaved upon his harp he overcame
and won the king and saved h's own life.
In the innocence of his boyhood before he
had ever heard a harsher note than the
sound of a flute, it was his custom to
gather and control the sheep by its sweet
and direct notes. Evidently God endowed
man with the spirit of song and poesy
knowing full well that he, man. would
unbraid that song into its eight con
stituent notes and set it forth in a myriad
of musical instruments, works of his
sagacity, ingenuity, genius and versatility.
In the same maner that by the use of the
prism he separated white light, into the
seven prismatic colors, as a woman un
braids her hair. This i® the manner in
which God builds roads over which he ex-'
peets the soul to travel. He fills one with
an ambition for gold and the soul follows
to the black hills. California and the
Klondike. He fills another soul with the
love of liberty and the whiteninig sails
from every harbor in the world shine
against the sun at our wharves. He fills the
soul with song and musical instruments
of every type, shape, quality and sound
are the resultants. According to our
judgment and the foregoing musical in
struments, and animal and human
vocality are but the pedestal upon which
rests the real goddess of music:—
“The soul in song.
“Thus an inevitable conclusion is
reached that instrumentality of every
kind and vocality of every quality and
degree are but the acccompaniments to
the soul in song.”
Here Miss Frost, Mrs. Roger, Mrs.
Hough and Mrs. Eveleth rendered an
other Neapolitan selection, and Miss Har
riet Sibley Ward recited Shelley’s “Ode
to the Skylark.” Mrs. NIese sang "Mar
garetta,” and there was another quar
tette selection, “A German Folk Song,”
by Miss Frost, Miss Hough, Mrs. Eveleth
and Mrs. Ferris, after which Mrs. Beach
Slocum gave an interesting paper on
“Current Musical Events.”
Miss Isabelle Ferris sang very sweetly
an Irish song by Thomas Moore, Miss Up
perell, accompanied on the piano by her
sister, did some clever whistling, and Miss
Ward recited “Nanping the Kittens.” A
Spanish Tambourine Song, by another
quartette, Miss Frost, Mrs. Eveleth, Miss
Isabelle Ferris and Miss Rogers, com
pleted the programme, after which re
freshments were served, amid a general
flow of sociability.
Before closing, however, Mrs. A. J.
Newbury, President of the Woman’s Club,
spoke a few words of encouragement and
invited all present to attend the Federa
tion meeting in Cranford Thursday, for
which she distributed programmes.
Among those present were:—Mrs. A. J.
Newbury, Miss Ada D. Fuller, Mrs. Eve
leth, Mrs. Garwood Ferris, Miss I. Ferris,
Miss Frost, Mrs. David A. Bishop, Mrs.
Toffey, Mrs. Samuel Drayton, Miss Ince,
Miss Rogers, Miss Bennet, Miss Pope,
Mrs. Gilmore, Mrs. E. C. Dutcher, Mrs.
G. Rowland, Mrs. G. R. Hough, Miss A.
FrOst, Miss Eltringham, Mrs. Henry
Niese. Mrs. Charles Graff, Miss Broad,
Mrs. Renner of New York and Miss Cur
rier of Newark.
ST. PETER’S PRIZE DEBATE.
The annual prize debate of the students
of St. Peter’s College will take place
Monday evening, at St. Peter’s New Hall,
on York street. The subject will be,
.’’Resolved, That Commercial Trusts
Should be Abolished."
It promises to be one of the most In
teresting debates ever given by the stu
dents, and no doubt the attendance will be
a large one.
There will be no charge, but admission
will be by ticket only.
BUSY BEES’ GOOD WORK.
The Busy Bee Benevolent Association Is
arranging for an entertainment to be held
Monday evening, May 14, at Columbia
Hall, Ocean and Cator avenues. The pro
ceeds will be used for the relief of Green
ville’s worthy poor.
CLUB'S NEW HOME.
St. Patrick’s Discusses Plans
for a New Parish Build
ing-Father Car
roll’s Return.
At the stated monthly session of St.
Patrick’s Catholic Club, held last night,
the date of the arrival of Bishop Wigger
and the Rev. L. C. M. Carroll was an
nounced by a nephew of the pastor as
May 19. The party sailed from Genoa on
the steamship Werra. Mr. James Col
lins, Father Carroll’s nephew, received
this Information yesterday. The parish
committee will now probably take up
the plans of arrangements for a recep
tion to the returning pastor. Just what
form the reception will assume will be
left for Father Carroll to decide. Be
fore leaving for Europe he spoke of hav
ing a purse raised for him among^ the
members of his parish and this will
doubtless be carried out.
Since Father Carroll’s absence, the
committee of ladles appointed to secure
necessary funds for the renovation of the
chapel where confessions are heard, un
der the presiding priests’ direction, have
succeeded in raising about $1,500, the
amount required. New benches will be
put in, and the altar repainted along
with other improvements.
The club members last night discussed
the possibility of securing their new
home this year opposite the church. The
brick foundation for this structure has
been standing since last fall. The plot
is a very large one and the plans show
the proposed parish hall to be a beauty
in every respect. Bishop Wigger will
doubtless lay the corner-stone. No date
has yet been set, but the event will most
likely take place next month with ap
propriate ceremonies. Catholic societies
from all over the county will take part.
This structure will be a modern one In
every respect. The frame is to be of
steel, thus insuring additional rigidity.
Brick will be used on the entire building,
Father Carroll claiming that this mate
rial will absorb the dampness more read
ily than stone, and this will provide per
fectly dry and healthy apartments. The
building will contain one of. the finest
assembly halls in the city.
Upon its completion, the Catholic Club
will organize a dramatic circle for the
production of dramas and farces similar
to the work of other Catholic institu
tions. The cost of the parish building is
indefinite. A feature will be the new
school to be organized. There are a
great many children of school age in the
parish and both boys and girls will be
provided with separate class rooms on
different sides of the building.
The members of the tatholic Club have
struggled along successfully in their
cramped quarters in a private house on
Grand street for more than two years,
and the prospects of a more commodious
home is an incentive to hard work and
the re-establishment of a solid organiza
tion.
Andrew Eerin, of the Diocesan Lnlon,
reported that the Union had started a
project for a field day of sports to be
held In Shooting Park. Newark, on Au
gust 11. He urged the members to have
as many entries listed as possible and
have the club make a good and success
ful showing. Every Catholic Club In the
diocese is interested in the move, and the
event is likely to meet with much suc
cess, judging from the interest mani
fested.
The members are undecided as to
whether a committee will go to the pier
to welcome their returning pastor.
WAS A GREAT SUCCESS.
Sixty-five Prizes Won a
Euchre for German Hos
pital Fair.
The progressive euchre and reception
held last Evening at Columbia Hall, un
der the auspices of the Ladies’ Aid So
ciety of the German Hospital and Dis
pensary Association was a great success.
One hundred and sixty-eight players tr-ed
their luck at prize winning. Sixty-five
handsome prizes were arrayed tastefu'ly
on a table placed on the stage at the east
end’ of the hall. Every player started in
with the determination to win one of
these prizes, and as a result the games
were unusually spirited and! closely con
tested. No ciuarter was given, not even
to the iladies, who on these occasions are
apt to make little mistakes which often
result in the loss of a game.
The hall was tastefully decorated with
bunting and potted palms. The arrange
ment committee had so arranged the
tables that no confusion resulted in the
changing of places at the termination of
games.
Play began promptly at eight o’clock.
At eleven o’clock the last game had been
played, and the winners, according to
their scores, were allowed to select prizes.
The following won prizes:—Mrs. Wester

"Gentlemen—Since my last report the
work of clearing the reservoir basin, of
timber, etc. has been continuously prose
cuted as has also the removal of earth,
shale and hardpan from the dam site in
order to reach suitable rock base for the
masonry superstructure.
Inside the Coffer dam a cut off trench in
rock Is being channelled and blasted out.
The depth of the trench at this point will
probably be about thirty feet where it is
expected to meet compact conglomerate.
It is thereafter to be filled up solidly with
concrete so as to prevent leakage through
any seams which may exist in the rock
underlying the masonry of the dam.
“The quarry has been opened up exten
sively and in connection with the large
steam crushers. Is now in shape to
deliver rock and crushed stone exnedi
tiously and in large quantities. At least
one-third of the stone for facing mason
ry for the dam has been got out, cut and
is ready for delivery.
“The railroad is completed from the
quarry to the dam and is equipped with
over seventy cars for delivering material.
“Bents are now being constructed and
erected at the dam to serve as founda
tions on which railroad tracks will be laid
and moveable derricks erected in order
that material may be delivered expedi
tlouslv and at fhe precise points where re
qu’red.
“I am informed by the contractor that
within two or three weeks the manufac
ture of the special steel for the pipes
will be commenced, also the work on the
tunnels, through Hook and Watchung
Mountains.
“To sum up. I am glad to renort sat
isfactory progress on all the large
amount of preliminary work absolutely
essential to a satisfactory commencement
and prosecution of definite construction.
“Respectfully submitted.
