Mr. Bry na’s Fool Supporters.
Decidedly the "World” is doing both
the country and the Democratic party the
worst possible service in its Extraordinary
demands for a backdown in China. What
It means by urging that we should now
draw out of the imbroglio, merely because
the lives of Minister Conger and his suite
are saved, common senee fails to suggest.
If we should withdraw our troops at
this time and cease all participation in the
business of bringing China to terms, we
should be guilty In the eyes of all
Christendom of cowardice, bad faith and
almost. Incredible folly. What rights
could we expect to enjoy in China at any
future time? What share of the com
merce of. the country could we claim?
What righj'-. would wo have to protect our
missionaries or other citizens who might
enter Chinese territory? Could we even
send Mr. Conger back as Minister to the
Chinese Government, or would we not by
our abandonment of our share In the
pending struggle abandon equally all right
of intercourse with the empire when re
modelled 'by European force?
z?Tom me Droaa point or view tne |
“World’s" demands are unimportant. No- [
body will be so fatuous as to pay any at- i
tention to them. But the effect upon the
Democratic party of urging such a policy
cannot fail to be disastrous. The ’'World"
Is one of the leading newspapers now
giving Mr. Bryan a more or less earnest
support. It is impossible therefore to I
keep the idea out of the general mind !
that, in advocating a policy of running
away from our responsibilities in the !
East, it Is voicing his sentiments. Of!
course this is unfair. Mr. Bryan may j
have the soundest views on this question. !
(He has not yet expressed himself upon it, j
and it is nonsense to hold bint responsible :
for the crazy maunderings of the New !
York organ of ignorance and meanness.
This is the penalty which Mr. Bryan
pays for the support of the criminal class
of publications. .He is liable to be held
more or lese guilty of their crimes. Thus
many people attribute to h.m the atrocious
views of the Jacobin Club because they
find these preached in the New York
“Journal.’’ Tod3y the "Tr.’bune” has a
hysterical protest against the policy of
“scuttle" in China, based upon the
“World’s" half insane lucubrations. Mr.
Bryan needs a great deal of sympathy on
account of the tag-rag and bobtail who
are attaching themselves to his kite. It
fa to be feared that by the time the cam
paign is over he will be forced to wail in
the fullest bitterness of his soul, "Save me
from my friends."
A Man Who Has Given the World
Readers of this morning's newspapers
will have noticed therein brief obituary
notices of one Friedrich Wilhelm
Nietzsche. To some the name will mean
nothing. To a majority of those who are
acquainted with it, the only thought that
■will arise is that an extraordinary lunatic
has come to his end. A very few wiil
mourn the death of one of the world’s
great teachers, a prophet of the mighty
Time alone can tell just what Nietzsche
■Was, a madman or a seer. But one con
cession must be made <o his memory, viz.,
that he has contributed one master idea
to the thought of the age, that of the
nebermensch, or "above-man.” Seizing a
fugitive expression of Goethe, he de
veloped the conception of a step still to
be made in the process of evolution, that
Of the “above-man," as he called it, a
being as far beyond humanity In its In
stincts and faculties as man is above the
anthropoid apes.
This concept may be only a dream, but
It Is a dream of the sort that constitutes
genius In the dreamer. Nietzsche’s method
of presentation is wild and rhapsodical,
even incoherent; in his later life he be
came indubitably insane; hence the habit
of the majority of persons of disposing of
him as a mere Intellectual freak. But the
Immensity of hi* main thought cannot be
disposed of in any summary way. As
thought and effort progress, it is more
than likely that the development of the
“above-man” will occupy a larger and
larger place In the general mind of the
present race.

Father Harpes Presented
With a Purse by His
After Nine Years at St Peter’s
He Is Transferred to
the Bay State.
As a token of the esteem and good will
which the parishioners of St. Peter’s R.
C. Church, Grand and Van Vorst streets,
hold their rector. Rev. Father Harpes,
they presented him yesterday with a
cheek of $1,222. It was a great day for
Father Harpes as it was the celebration
of his twenty-five years ordination to the
priesthood, and also his last day as rector
of St. Peter’s Church, of which he had
charge for nine years.
In the morning the last mass, which
was a solemn high mass, was celebrated
by Rev. Father Harpes, assisted by
Fathers Busam and Zwinge. The sermon
was preached by Rev. Father 'McDonald.
The church was crowded to the doors.
At the conclusion of the mass, the com
mittee in charge of the presentation
escorted Rev. Father Harpes, followed
by the congregation, to 3t. Peter’s Hall,
on York street, where the presentation
was made. On the stage were:—Tax Com
missioner James F. Gannon, who acted
as chairman, Michael B. Holmes, Patrick
Buckley. ex-Alderman William Moran,
William H. Norton, Rev. Father Harpes
and Rey. Father McDonald.
Mr. Gannon after explaining the pur
pose of assembling in the hall: introduced
Rev. Father McDonald, who spoke very
briefly of how the people of St. Peter’s
Church loved the retiring rector, of the
good work he had performed during the
time he had charge of the palish, and
upon the celebration of his quarter cen
tury as a priest. He then, on behalf of
the committee, presented Father Harpes
with the check.
In the absence of Mr. Robert Davis
from the city, who was treasurer, Com
missioner Gannon gave his own personal
check for the amount that was sub
scribed. The applause the remarks of
Father McDonald received was tre
mendous and as Father Harpes arose to
accept the gift he was given a great
Mr. Gannon then read the names of the
subscribers and expressed his thanks for
their assistance to the committee. Mt.
Michael B. Holmes was introduced and
on behalf of the people of the parish read
the following letter:—
Jersey City. Aug. 26, 1900.
Itev. John Harpes, S. J., Rector or St.
Peter s Church and President of St.
Peter s College:—
Rev. Dear Sir—Learning that you are
about to eeiebrtue your silver jubilee,
alter having devoted a quarter of a
century of your life to the service of
God and His Church, nine of these
years having been spent in St. Peter's
parish, whose people, Knowing and ap
preciating tne great sacrifices you have
made tor ilieir spiritual welfare and
the education of .heir children, now
leain with profound sorrow that you
are about to be removed from them to
another field of labor in Christ's vine
E'er the link that has these many
years bound you to us is completely
severed, your spiritual children of St.
Peter's parish ask the privilege of b»
tr.g allowed to present you with this
purse as a small token of their ap
preciation of the self sacrificing labors
you have performed during your stay
among them.
While we regret that in obedience to
the will of the Superior General, and
in compliance with the rules of your
order, you are now about to sever your
connection with us as President of St.
Peter's College and rector of St.
Peter’s Church, you may rest assured
that you carry with you to your new
field of labor, the admiration, respect
and love of every member of St.
Peter’s congregation.
Hoping that you will ever remember
the people of this parish in your pray
ers and when offering the holy sacri
fice of the Mass, we are, on behalf of
the people of St. Peter’s parish and
the contributors to this testimonial,
Most respectfully yours,
Committee of Arrangements.
Rev. Father 'Harpes was then intro
duced amid tremendous applause that
lasted for more than three minutes. After
it subsided he said:—
"Dear friends, I never in my life under
stood better the meaning of the word
gratitude. I want to say that never will
I forget you for your kindness to me. In
the nine years that I have been among
you I claim nothing for myself; it is all
owing to you.. If any good has been ac
complished the credit belongs to you.
What could I have done without your
help? As for the many good deeds that
have been done for the poor of the parish
the credit belongs to the St. Vincent de
Paul and the Sewing Circle, and as for
the education of your children that credit
also belongs to you. The credit in fact is
all your^ and I have reason to thank
you for the help you have rendered me
during my years in St. Peter’s.
"I want to say that -during my nine
years, of the twenty-five as a priest, in
St. Peter’s they were the happiest of my
life. I want to thank the committee for
their generous offering to me, and with

annual picnic Saturday afternoon and
evening at Greenville Schuetzen Park.
The affair was very well attended. Fully
eight hundred people were in the park
in the evening, and the dancing was en

noon games and races were run off, in
cluding a swimming match, bowling
match, rope climbing, sack race, running
broad jump, hundred yard dash, putting
sixteen pound shot, and tug-of-war. The
games were all exciting and the rope
climbing contest caused a lot of fun.

Yesterday’s cloud burst doubtless pre
vented u serious fire In the Horseshoe.
Just before the rain-came down In a tor
rent a great blaze from, which rolled
a huge black coll of smoke was observed
below the Hill in the vicinity of
Seventeenth street and Hoboken avenue.
Those who witnessed it immediately
jumped to the conclusion that the Crew,
I-evick Company’s Oil Works were on
tire. At the time the northern sky was
being rent every few seconds by horiz
ontal flashes of lightning. It was sur
mised that one of the company’s oil
tanks had been struck and1 fired. The
flames were gathering headway and fire
alarm boxes both above and below the
Hill were pulled. Before the firemen
reached the scene the cloudburst and the
rain descended in sheets. The flames dis
appeared as rapidly as they had sprung
up, and firemen, drenched to the hide,
looked in vain for the fire. Nos. 1, 5 and 6
Engines, and No. 2 Truck, below the Hill,
responded, as did also Nos. 7, U, 12 and
H Engines and No. 3 Truck. The firemen
blinded by the rain sworo at their luck
in having to respond to false alarms.
One of the boxes pulled on the Hill was
No. 412, which has so often, fooled them.
The only evidence of a fire was the
burned stalks of about fifty square yards
of meadow grass which, doubtlessly had
been fired by sparks from, a West Shore
locomotive. The fire was near to the oil
works and was sweeping in that direc
James Oats OS But William Is
Mulcted a Ten Dollar Note.
The Dooley brothers, William and
James, of No. 606 Henderson street, were
before Acting Police Justice McCormick,
this morning; -qftfer Several sifnilar ex
periences in the past. Thoy were ar
rested by Chanceman Beggans. The offi
cer testified that William had been do
ing so much loud talking and making
such a general nuisance of himself that
he warned the youth to keep quiet and
go home. They were on the corner of
Henderson and Fifteenth streets at the
time. William walked away, but returned
shortly. Then he resumed his disorderly
conduct and was arrested.
On the way to the signal box James
came along and tried to argue the matter
with the officer. This being useless James
began a fight. He became abusive and
invited the officer to arrest him also. He
was accommodated. - Justice McCormick
warned James and let him go, but sen
tenced William to pay a fine of $10 or
serve sixty days in jail.
The Greenville fire department were
routed out Saturday night to answer a
call from box 8, located at the corner of
Sea View and Garfield avenues. On arriv
ing at the spot no fire or anybody who
could tell who sent the alarms in could
be found. The first alarm sounded at 1:15,
and the second three minutes later. While
the firemen were discussing the matter
some one said there was a fire at Arm
bruster’s Greenville Schuetzen Park. The
men went there and discovered that the
switch box for the electric lights was on
fire. The box is on a pole in front of the
park. No alarm had been sent in from
there, so some one must have run almost
a mile from the park to the box from
which the alarm came. The firemen would
like very much to meet the man or boy
■who broke the glass in the box and sent
in the call.
For the next ninety days Maria Bender,
a well known character of disrepute, who
has spent half her thirty years of life in
jail, will be missed from her old haunts.
Maria was walking along Newark avenue
at four o’clock yesterday morning, drunk,
and creating a general disturbance.
Patrolman Maypother was strolling
along, saw her, and started toward her.
When she met the officer she said she
did not like his face and expressed the
opinion that he wasn't so much anyhow,
Maypother arrested her. Justice McCor
mick said ninety days In the Penitentiary
might improve her taste, whereupon
Maria screamed and Jumped about like a
m'ad thing, creating a general disturbance
in court. It was necessary to carry her
to a cell.
A house of ill repute, which has caused
the police considerable trouble, but which
could not be “got right," was at last raid

The place was at No. 248 Railroad avenue,
and was kept by Nora Richardson, a
chum of “Hoboken Sadie.” “Hoboken
Sadie” was christened Sadie Loth, and Is
sometimes known as Sadie Thorpe. The
Richardson woman was the only occupant.
She was held in $500 for the Grand Jury.

Two fifty ton steel coal ears loaded with
soft coal were thrown from the outer track
on the north side of the elevated freight
trestle of the Pennsylvania Railroad
trestle shortly after nine o'clock Satur
day night, and. fell with a tremendous
crash Into the open lot at Sixth and Mon

of one of the wheels of one car caused
the accident. The two cars were part of
a long train that was moving somewhat
rapidly over the trestle when the acci
dent occurred. About one hundred and
fifty feet of the railing of the trestle was
carried away and the trestle itself was
considerably damaged.
Great excitement prevailed . in the
neighborhood at the time. It was rumored
that a man was under the deBVls. Few
people knew exactly what had taken
place. Some one sent In a fire alarm

Usnal Crowd of Sunday Night Strol
lers Leave in Disgust.
The electric lights on the Boulevard
gave a somewhat erratic exhibition last
night and demonstrated that they possess
the undesjrable faculty of going out
whenever they see fit. They gleamed
forth as usual at about 7:30 P. M., and
the usual large number of persons sought
the Boulevard for a cool stroll. After
remaining lit for twenty minutes at the
outside they suddenly went out.
This put a damper on the strollers,
who immediately sought their homes, for
the Boulevard in the dark is a most dis
mal promenade. As the throng wended
its way homeward the lights bobbed up
again serenely and many retraced their
steps. They did not count upon the ec
centricities of the Boulevard lights, which
in about five minutes again flickered and
went out, leaving the thoroughfare in
This time the promenaders left for
good. In consequence the Boulevard,
usually crowded until a late hour on
Sunday evenings, was practically desert
ed at ten o’clock. Many adverse criti
cisms of the annoying performances of
the lights were heard on all sides.

But Pastor Stanloy Has Hopes the
Swindler Is In Dnrance.
[Special to "The Jersey City News.”]
ATLANTIC CITY, Aug. 27, 1900.—A tele
gram received last night by Pastor Stan
ley of the First Presbyterian Church
leads him to believe that the swindler
who some weeks ago imposed upon his
confidence has been apprehended in Bal
timore. The swindler went under the
name of Dr. Williams, a surgeon In the
German Navy. He was at a prominent
hotel, handily lost his pocketbook when
his 'board bill was due, knew a friend of
Dr. Stanley’s in Japan, and had a brother
who was a Presbyterian minister in
Dresden, Germany. Dr. Stanley invited
the naval officer in distress to his home
and he remained there several weeks, ne
gotiating loans of money in the mean
time, and promising when remittances
came to pay up and make a donation to
the church. W’hen the remittances were
due he disappeared.
Pastor Stanley occasionally heard of
the man through friends writing him of
a German naval officer appealing for
financial assistance because he- lost his
wallet and was in financial straits. Pas
tor Stanley may go to Baltimore to ap
pear against the prisoner who gave the
name of Dr. Von Hatzfeld, but who
answered the description of Dr. Williams.
Dr. Hatzfeld says in addition that he
belongs to the German Navy.

TRENTON, Aug. 27, 1900—Several young
and pretty women, members o£ Grace
Methodist Church, at Crosswicks, a small
hamlet near this city, will saw wood for
a prize at the coming church festival.
The church treasury needs replenishing,
and the trustees were at a loss to find
some scheme that would draw a crowd.
They were opposed to wheels of fortune
and lottery schemes. What was wanted
was something new and they were about
giving up in despair when one of the
pretty girl members of the congregation
suggested that a wood-sawing contest be
held. The idea was taken up instantly.
The contest is to be held Thursday
night, on the church lawn, inside an in
closure, to which an admission fee is to
been charged. The young men of the sur
rounding country are taking great in
terest in the affair.
Jersey Statesmen Nov Talk in Na -

[Special to "The Jersey City News.”]
TRENTON. Aug. 27, 1900.—Bronzed and
weather beaten by their four days’ voyage
on the pilot boat Tunnell, the group of
New Jersey statesmen put in to Cape May
yesterday afternoon. State Comptroller
W. S. Hancock was the only sign of a
wreck. He had encountered a slippery
companionway just as he went abroad
last Wednesday, and spent all the rest of
the voyage in nursing a sprained ankle.
As the boat was well provided with
emergency remedies, the Comptroller was
made as comfortable as possible.
All of the statesmen learned a lot about
piloting, and now the snip of state will
be steered with a precision born of ex
perience. The party had a delightful trip,
with plenty of fishing and other attrac
tions. .
