This paper is Democratic in principles and is independent tit ite views on all local questions. Governor Stone and the Striker*. Governor Stone of Pennsylvania has done exactly the right thing in placing the territory affected by the coal strike j under military control. This is the surest | possible way to avert disorder, bloodshed and destruction of property. The pres ence of the military is a discouragement ! to both sides. It overawes the turbulent element among the strikers and it de prives the employers of all excuse for provoking riot through the medium of armed Pinkerton mercenaries. Some of the strike leaders find fault with the Governor for anticipating trouble by ordering out the troops. This is a wrong-headed view. The Governor took the proper course. The time to place the troops on guard is not after the mischief Is done, but before—in time to prevent it. The strikers assert that they contemplate making their fight in a peaceful, law abiding manner. If they are sincere, they have nothing to complain of; the presence of the soldiers involves no change in their plans. If Governor Stone had not pursued the course he did, fearful scenes of bloodshed and ruin would have been Inevitable. As it is, there will probably be neither loss of life nor property during the strike. Blunted Republican Moral*. The "Tribune,” this morning, thinks it makes a point by asking the question. “What would we have done if there had been a revolt against American authority In Cuba?” This is not the question at all. The question is; “What would we have had a right to do?” Feqnannook. Newark is making the best of a bad bargain. It is taking the Pequannock waterworks and paying *2,000,000 in bonds as a final payment. This will leave us no supply from the East Jersey except the fluid pumped from the Passaic at Little Fans. We have one consolation. It cannot be worse than the stuff we have been given, all summer. Barg an as a Candidate for Con y greas. Tffe Democrats of the Third Congres sional District have nofninated for the House of Representatives, James J. Ber gen, of Somerville. Mr. Bergen was twice speaker of the Assembly of this State and both times presided; over Houses which considered some of the most important measures now on the statute books of the State. The manner in which he discharged the duties Of that high office demonstrated that he was eminently fitted for any Legislative office to which he might be called. He has long been one of the leaders of the State Democracy and there is no reason why every Democrat in the dis trict should not vote for him. Secessionist Candidate. Edward Kenny, at one time Mayor of the struggling and inconsequential bor ough of East Newark, has announced himself as a candidate for State Senator from Hudson eouaty. He has also declar ed that at the primaries to be held this week he will contend with Robert Hud speth for the Democratic nomination. If any Democrat from this section of the county is inclined to cast his vote for Mr. Kenny at the primaries he should remem ber that the gentleman 13 the leader of Harrison and Kearny secessionists. When the bills providing for the annex ation of the western section of the coun ty to Sussex were before the Legislature, Mr. Kenny was One of the most active of the lobby In their favor. He was most assiduous In his attendance at Trenton, and never let slip an opportunity to but tonhole a member In the Interests of the bill. Whenever a hearing on the meas ure was given, he appeared before the committee, spoke earnestly in favor of the partition of Hudson and led the promo ters of the scheme in their onslaught upon the taxpayers of the eastern end of the county. If by any chance Mr. Kenny should get Into the Senate, there can be no doubt of what his course on this question would be, and the safest course for the Demo crats of this section of the county to pur sue is to see that he never has that chance by casting their votes for Mr. Hudspeth at the coming primaries. ST. PATRICK’S COLLECTION. The annual collection of St. Patrick's parish Is still going on under the super vision of Father Carroll. He Is being as sisted by Fathers Keough and Monahan. The pastor hopes to obtain af least 12,500. FAITH (JURISTS BAPTIZED Large Crowd That Gathered for Fun Was Disappoint ed. An immense crowd gathered on the shores of New York Bay at the foot of Chapel avenue, yesterday afternoon to witness the baptism of four new converts to the Faith Curlsts' religion. Fully three thousand' people were present some had seen previous baptisms and some were there in the expectation of seeing some thing out of the usual when the converts were immersed but they were disappoint ed. The water was chilly and the after noon was cool hut beyond a catching of breath at the first chill the converts made no demonstration. It was a very impressive scene the thousands standing with bared heads while the solemn rite of baptism was per formed. Brother Hancock, the leader of Mt. Zion Sanctuary, officiated. Previoous to the bapticm a praise and testamonial service was held in Mt. Zion Chapel. Many marvelous cures from all kinds of diseases and afflictions were de clared such as paralysis, chills and fever, head aches, apoplexy, catarrh, hay fever the drink and tobacco habit, and one man who previously had been a confirmed gambler had had the inclination taken away. All of the foregoing cures were made solely by faith, no medicines nor medical aid of any kind being used1. The meeting was very enthusiastic and con stant amens and hallelujahs were heard while the testimonies were being made. This is the annual convocation which has been celebrated since last Sunday. It will be finished Tuesday evening. Meet ings were held every day last week and the leaders have great hopes of bringing many of the undecided and wavering to the faith at the last meet ing Tuesday evening, when strong ex horters will address the meeting. MISSION AT ST. ALOYSIUS’S. Immense Attendance of Women Last Week—Services for Men. The mission for women which took place last week at St. Aloyslus’s Church on West Side avenue was brought to a successful close yesterday afternoon. The Rev. Fathers Wallace and Cassidy, of the Society of Jesus, assisted by the pastor. Rev. John A. Sullivan, officiated at the final ceremonies, which closed with the Papal Benediction. Both the missionaries and the pastor praised the women for their attendance during the week, both night and morning, and hoped that the coming week, which Is for men, wou'.d be equally as good. La^t night every seat was occupied when the opening services for the men were held. Father Cassidy briefly stated the objects of the mission and Father Wal lace preached the sermon of the evening, taking for his text, “What will it avail a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul." Father Wallace is a son of Erin’s green isle, and he uses his native wit and humor, of which he has a plentiful store, to punctuate his remarks. He was listened to with rapt attention by the congregation. The services closed with the benediction by Father Sullivan. Today at half-past three the children of the parish will be taken in hand and prepared for their own little mission. Father Sullivan is well pleased with the work so far done, and expectB a big ad dition to his congregation as a result of the mission, which is the first ever given in the parish. CAMERA CLUB’S OUTING. Messrs. Robidoux, Chavant, J. Homan. E. Homan, W. Armbruster and Charles Armbruster of the Greenville Camera Club are enthusiastic over the many beau tiful scenes to be photographed in the country lying between Peekskill and Cold Springs, N. Y. The party spent a de lightful day there last Friday and se cured many fine photographs. They rec ommend It to all camera enthusiasts as an ideal country for views.. The party have no tales of wonderful happenings this time. Thev drove all around Peekswill and the outlying coun try, stopping whenever a fine view could be taken. AMUSEMENT& Academy of Music. Tonight we are to have at the Academy that favorite and breezy musical comedy, “The Telephone Girl.” All the prominent cities of the country have been played during the past three seasons, beginning with New York, where it enjoyed a phenomenal run of over two hundred and fifty nights, accorded it a most enthusias tic reception, and it seems not to have surrendered one jot of its popularity. This season many improvements will be noticed. New specialties have been in jected, new music as well, together with the latest “coon" songs, new comical dialogue and various other attractive fea tures. Bon Ton. The company known as the "Victoria Burlesquers,” will be at the Bon Ton Theatre this week. The organization is under the personal direction of the pro prietor, Mr. Ed. F. Rush.

FIGURE ON STATE. i — Both Parties Claim New Jersey by Various Majorities. BURLINGTON’S CONTEST Republican Senatorial Fight May Make the County Democratic. (Special to “The Jersey City News.”) TRENTON. Sept. 24. 1900.—As the cam paign progresses the Republicans are be coming more confident as to the result, and some of the claim that New Jersey will give a majority of not less than 50,000 for their Presidential ticket. The more conservative among them, however, do not predict a higher majority than 25,000. The Republican leaders place great reli ance upon the banner counties of Essex, Camden, Mercer and Union for a big vote for their ticket, but at the same time they do not look for such a sweeping result as occurred in 1S96. Major Lentz adheres to his opinion, expressed some time ago, that Essex will give a majority of 15,000. Sher iff Baird says that Camden will roll up 8,000, and “Charley” Codding feels^onfi dent that Union will make a record of not less than 4,000. The least expected from Mercer is 2,500, while some of the local leaders believe that 3,500 will be nearer the mark. Estimates made as to the other Republican counties are as follows: At lantic, 1,500; Burlington, 1,800; Bergen, 1,000; Cape May, 800; Cumberland, 2,000; Gloucester. 800; Morris, 1,200; Ocean, 900; Passaic, 260; Salem, 300; Somerset, 800. The counties of Middlesex, Monmouth and Sussex are placed in the doubtful list, while Hunterdon and Warren are con ceded to the Democrats each by from 1,000 to 1,500. As to Hudson county some of the Republican leaders contend that it will give a small majority for their ticket. According to these figures then the Re publican majority in the State would be about 40,000. Chairman Gourley, of the Democratic State Committee, seems strongly im pressed with the notion that New Jersey, despite the roseate views taken by the Republican campaign managers, may go Democratic. He is quoted as having pre dicted a majority for the Presidential ticket of his party of about 10,000. How he figures that out perhaps he himself is unable to explain. However, it is ex cusable In Mr. Gourley, as the chief or ganizer of his party, to keep a stiff upper lip with the hope that something may turn up before election day to rescue his party from the slougih of despondency into which it has been plunged ever since Bryan became the national leader. Under adverse circumstances Mr. Gourley is doing the best he can to place his forces in fighting trim and if the leaders of his party gave him loyal support the gloom which has so long prevailed would soon disappear. Only a few members of the Democratic State Committee are render ing assistance to the chairman, while the others seem either Indifferent or dis gruntled. It is a ead condition of affairs indeed, for the old party which for over a quarter of a century ruled New Jersey. A prominent Democrat from that county a day or two ago expressed his belief that Hudson would give a small majority for McKinley and Roosevelt, while, at the same time, the Davis local ticket would be elected beyond all peradventure. ' It Is stated that the real power behind the throne in Hudson is no less a person than Edward F. C. Young, who advises Mr. Davis in every movement he makes. And it is further stated that Mr. Young is in the field for the Gubernatorial nomina tion next year, and expects to meet with success. Of course, the adherents of Mr. Davis—and they virtually compose the Democratic party in Hudson—deny the allegation that their leader is disloyal to the national ticket. They contend that he is giving it as much support as he is the local ticket, end that the county will roll up a good-sized majority for Bryan and Stevenson. Passaic County Republicans are again in the throes of a terrific factional con test over the office of Sheriff. The candi dates are former Assemblyman John W. Sturr and Alderman Wright, both of Paterson, and John J. Slater, of Passaic City. Over 400 ballots were taken last week without coming to a decision, and the convention had adjourned to next Wednesday, when the battle will be re newed . This rumpus, very likely, will lead to the election of another Demo cratic Sheriff in that Republican county, the same as a similiar situation did three years ago. The great popularity of Gar ret A. Hobart helped Passaic Republi cans four years ago to roll up a big ma jority for their ticket, andi If he were alive, no doubt the present troubles would be smoothed over. There is no peacemaker to take Mr. Hobart’s place now. As Mr. Gourley lives In Passaic, where for years he has met with much success as a politician, he is likely to wield great influence there in the pres ent campaign. Former Assemblyman Wood McKee was nominated by the Republicans for the State Senate, and he may go down with the‘rest of his ticket, especially if the present Senator, Christian Braun, is renominated by the Democrats. Although the date for the Republican primaries has not yet been fixed in Cape May county, the battle for the Senatorial nomination is practically settled. The Democrats have abandoned all idea of gathering their forces together this year, because they can get no one to assume the party leadership. At the two State conventions this year the county was rep resented by one lone delegate, former City Collector David W. Rodan, and in the Congressional convention at Salem the past week one man answered the roll call. It is evident, therefore, that the Demo crats in old Cape May will cut no figure In this campaign, and that’s why so much interest centres in the Republican canvass —a nomination means election. Up to a week or so ago Assemblyman Marshall was something of a factor in the fight, which is the contest of three years all over again, the followers of former Sen ator Ross bitterly opposing the nomina tion of Senator R. E. Hand. The lattef’s lieutenants have set up such a formidable front in all parts of the county, however, that the enemy has about abandoned the kopje. Burlington 1s to be stirred by the elo quence of Judge Lansing, of Nebraska, for three days. He is a favorite with the 'Burlington people, because he met "Pitch fork" Tillman in debate some years ago on the (Moqnt Holly Fair Ground and proved himself a political hero. He come® from Lincoln, Neb., the home of Mr. Bryan, and. In fact, he and Bryan vote at the sam? polling place. He will speak at Mount Holly on the night of October II, at Burlington on the 12th and at Borden town on the 18th. Tonight the first oratorical salute will be given In Camden, when Congressman Poster, with Senator Pitney and State Secretary Gibson, will define the phaseB of the IsBue. Altogether there are twenty-five meet ings scheduled for the upper part of the State next week. The primaries in Burlington county to select the delegates to the Burlington County Convention to nominate a State Senator will be held on Tuesday night. 'No preliminary contest in the State has attracted so much attention as this one. The convention is to be held next Satur day. Three years ago a convention was held in this county to nominate a State Senator, which left considerable bad taste in the mouths of many Republicans, and the bitterness of the medicine is still ap parent. There is a close connection between the convention of three years ago and the one that is to be held next Saturday. Captain Micajah E. Matlock, of Mount Holly, who had served two terms in the House nt Assembly, wanted to be State Senator, as did Assemblyman George ■Wildes, one of his colleagues. Senator Parry was in the way, but when his term ended both men began a vigorous but friendly fight for the Senatorial toga. Assemblyman Joshua Barton, a wealthy young lawyer, Jumped in, and after a fight to the finish in the con vention, secured the nomination, but was defeated at the polls. The present Sena tor, Howard E. Packer, a Democrat, was elected. Both Captain Matlock and Assembly man Wildes nursed their disappoint ment. Recently Mr. Wildes has defied time and distances to see every farmer In the county, and his activity and per sistency has drawn attention to hls cam paign. The third candidate and the new one, is Colonel Nathan C. Haines, the cashier of the Burlington National Bank. He stepped aside to allow both Senator Par ry and Assemblyman Barton to get the nomination, relying, he says, on the promises of the leaders for future suc cess. The Delaware shore towns, by right of succession, are now entitled to the place. On this account the State and county leaders favor him, and notwith standing all the bubbles on the surface he is the possible candidate. TO NAME SALMON AGAIN. Jersey Democrats Will Renomlnat the Contreiimaa. (Special to "The Jersey City News.”) FLEMINGTON, Sept. 24, 1900.—The Democrats of the Fourth Congressional district elected delegates Saturday to at tend the convention, which will be held in Newton on Wednesday. While there is an under-current of speculation adverse to the renomination of present Congress man Joshua S. Salmon of Morris county among those who would like to bring the nomination to Hunterdon, yet the atti tude of the people in favor of Mr. Salmon has been such that if any would aspire to succeed him they have wisely concluded that it had better be two years hence. Hunterdon county is strongly in favor of Congressman Salmon. The names most mentioned In connec tion with the nomination coming to Hun terdon are Editor Anthony Killgore of the Hunterdon County “Democrat”; ex Sheriff W. Howard Lake and former Sen ator Richard Kuhl. Mr. Killgore has de clared editorially in his newspaper in favor of Congressman Salmon. Ex-Sheriff Lake publicly states that he is not a can didate, and Mr. Kuhl has made no efforts to secure the candidates. KEARNY COUNCIL AWARD. Mayor Kenny Fighting for Contrac tor Sergent. Argument was heard by Justice Collins in the Supreme Court Friday afternoon on the application of Mayor Edward Kenny of East Newark for a writ of certiorari for the review of the action of the Kear ny Council in awarding the contract for the grading and guttering of Bergen ave nue and Elm street to David Harper for $10,997.76, when Edward Sargent’s bid for the same work was $101.25 less. Mayor Kenny stated that the Council did not re ject Sergeant’s bid, but simply ignored it and awarded the contract to Harper, the next highest bidder. He read the statute which makes it mandatory, where the terms of the bidding are complied with, to award the contract to the lowest re sponsible bidder, and quoted the case of Connolly vs. the Hudson County Board cf Freeholders, in which the Supreme Court upheld this interpretation. Town Counsel Forrest said that Mr. Sar gent’s bid did not comply with the adver tisement for bids in that no certified check accompanied it, and the contract was ac cordingly awarded to the next lowest bid der whose bid complied with all the re quirements of the advertisement. Mayor Kenny contended that the sta tutes did not require a certified check to accompany bids; that contracts had often been awarded by the Council, even to Mr. Sargent, without such check. He said the certified check received with bids was practically valueless, the Council could not retain nor use It, and besides If such security were absolutely necessary the Town Clerk had in his possession at the time the award was made, Mr. Sargent’s certified check for $450, and an uncertified check for the balance requireu by me terms of the advertisement for bids. Lawyer Forrest submitted to the Court a number of affidavits from town officials stating that Mr. Sargent did not com plete contracts awarded to him within the time stipulated. The affidavits enumerat ed a number of specific cases. Mayor Kenny replied that if the Town Council was not satisfied with Mr. Sar gent’s previous work it was strange that they had awarded him another contract on the same night the Harper award was made. Mr. Forrest said that the Council on that night had received bids for a num ber of improvements. The bid awarded to Mr. Sargent was accompanied by a cer tified check. The other bid was not so ac companied. Justice Collins took the papers in the case and will give his decision on the ap plication this week. CHOWDER AT BERGEN CLUB. The members of the Bergen Republican Club will gather tomorrow night to eat chowder at the clubhouse. This will be the first of a number of “blow-outs.” A committee will look after the guests. An informal programme will be rendered. WAS “DOING" NEW YORK Thomas Collins, of No. 122 Glanwood avenue, who disappeared from his home last Monday, returned' home Saturday.

LITERATURE FOR MANILA Club Women to Send Books and Magazines to Sol diers and Sailors Across the Seas Although as yet the Woman’s Club has held no regular meeting In any of Its de partments, still the heads of those de partments, as well as the club president, Mrs. A. J. Newbury, are busy with all sorts of plans In addition to the pro grammes already printed In the year book. Most of these plans are Tor special features of club work, something more or less new. during the winter campaign. The Literature Department, of which Miss Ada D. Fuller is chairman, has taken up the philanthropic wor kof send ing reading matter to the soldiers and sailors In Manila. The appeal was sent out originally by the women of the Army and Navy League, and the suggestion was made by some of the Woman’s Club mem bers that the Literature Department re spond to this request, as It Is naturally supposed that the members of this department possess a number of books, which they themselves having enjoyed. They are willing to pass on. The follow ing Is an extract from a circular sent out by the chairman of the department:— “It has bqen ascertained by the chair man of the department, through a letter received from Mrs. Marshal I. Luding ton, a member of the league, that a trans port is expected to sail directly from New York to Manila, either the last week in October or early in November, and this seems a splendid opportunity for us to send at least one box of good reading matter. Good story books, and current magazines are greatly appreciated by the soldiers ,and they spend! many hours In the little library building which has been fitted up for them. "In order that all of our members may assist in this plan. It has been arranged that books may be sent to (Mrs. James Watson, No. 21 Park street, and they will then be packed and forwarded to the Superintendent of Transport Service in New York. If you have any good read ing matter you are willing to contribute to this box, kindly send it before October 10 to Mrs. James Wilson. Also please mark your name on the outside of the package, as It is desired that a list of the donors may be kept.” GIRLS DREW A CROWD. Followed Up Tongue Lashing With a Fainting Spell. Two young women, supposed to live In Hudson street, this city, created consider able excitement at the baseball game be tween the Pearsalls and Clintons yester day afternoon. ■ The game took place at the foot of Linden avenue. The young women seemed to have been Indulging in something besides lemonade and they were very enthusiastic over the game. A boy standing near them made some re mark and they promptly pounced upon him and gave him a very forcible ex pression of their opinion of him. As soon as he could he broke away and then one of the girls fainted. S’he was carried to the drug store on the corner of the Boulevard and Unden avenue and restoratives were administered. While in the drug store two young fellows appeared and claimed to be their escorts. A coach was called and the lady of the faint habit was carried! out head first to t’he coach, between two dense lines of interested men, women and children. Her friend did not like the scrutiny of the crowd and told them what she thought of them. The driver was paid, started his horses and peace again reigned in the celery district. STRUCK BY A PLATE. Edward Burns, thirty-five years old, of No. 164 Sixth street, was taken to the Seventh street station by Chanceman Gundon yesterday, suffering with a severe wound on the left side of his head. Burns said he had been struck with a plate by John Gorman, of (No. 448 Henderson street, but he refused to make a complaint against Gorman. (His wound was dressed •by Gr. Hoffman and he went home.

Hundreds of Tons Will Rot in the Farmers Fields! , [Special to "The Jersey City News.”] SALEM, Sept. 24, 1900—The past week’s rush of tomatoes to the canneries made a glut which could not possibly be taken care of, and those farmers who declined last winter to make contracts with the packers at $6 per tom have been sorry indeed, for they have had hundreds of tons left on their hand's. The rush has been so great that the packers were overwhelmed, the capacity of theff plants being wholly insufficient to meet the re quirements. The tomatoes seem to have ripened all at once, and the growers have kept their wagons going as fast as men could load and haul them'. As the can neries became choked the wagons had to stand in long lines awaiting their turns, and the farmers, unhitching their horses, have been pressed into service. At one plant in Alloway on Friday 125 wagons w'ere compelled to work far into the night to catch up to the great influx. In some cases the packers’ stock of cans ran out and men hud to be put to work to replenish the supply. Through their inability to get their wagons unloaded at the canneries many of the growers were compelled to see hundreds of tons of richly-ripened vege tables rot in the fields. CITY NEWS NOTES.
