This paper is Democratic in principles ana ts independent in its vieus on all local questions. An Anticipatory Howl. Can it be that the great railroad com panies apprehend that some sort of jus tice will be done the wronged taxpayers of Jersey City by the next Legislature? Are they trying to ward off the coming blow by resorting to vituperation and per sona! abuse? It is difficult to account in any other way for the editorial in today's “State Gazette.” As is well known, that newspaper is the subservient railroad organ of the State, and when the great corporations ply the whip, the “editor'’ rubs his smart ing shoulders and writes as he is told. This morning he maligns, in an unusually blackguardly manner, some of Jersey Clty’g leading citizens who have been most active in the cause of the people in the promotion of equal taxation. The trend of the “Gazette's” article is to show that the Democrats only took up the cause when the Republicans came into control of the Legislature and that their sole object is to again secure power. “There is no record showing that this question of equal taxation disturbed the minds of the Democratic leaders when their party was in power,” writes the slave of the corporation. Now even the “Gazette” man has been in this State long enough to know that there la plenty of “record” of the Demo cratic party's work for equal taxation. Ho la thoroughly acquainted with the good results that Leon Abbett accom plished In that direction, and he also knows it waa this staunch Democrat who compelled the railroads to pay any taxes at all. The “Gazette” man may rave at the Hudson members and their efforts to ecure equal taxation until he dies, his -'•hirgs will have no effect. The fight wii be kept up until the people of Jersey tilts have secured their just rights and • he railroad companies are compelled to 1 e-r their fair share of local taxation. Stokes's Robber Plan. ■Perhaps one object of the “State Gazette” man is to divert attention from Mr. Stokes’s infamous plan to rob the cities of the State for the benefit of the country districts. Under the specious Stuioe of aiding the public schools the South Jersey Republican statesman pro poses to divert a part of the State surplus Into the treasuries of the several counties. Of course all will get something, but it is freely admitted that the rural districts will profit most by the subsidy. On this point, the "State Gazette” says:— The benefits of this plan will be felt more keenly, perhaps, in the agricul tural districts of the State than in the thickly settled sections, because in many of the agricultural counties one third of the tax rate is the school tax. It If understood that the State leaders have fallen in with Senator Stokes's plan and that there is little doubt that it will be put In operation. Now it Is a well-known fact that at least 75 per cent, of the surplus revenue of the State emanates from Hudson County, while .over 90 per cent, of it is derived from half a dozen leading cities. The propo sition of 8enator Stokes, therefore, amounts to a scheme of looting the mu nicipalities for the benefit of the rural districts. The politics in It are plainly to be seen. The Republican party believes it can buy voteo in the agricultural counties by re ducing the just burden of taxation which the farmers Unwillingly bear. For Hud son they do not care a pin because it is Democratic anyway and canndt be made more so. In spirit, the scheme is a counterpart of the Raines law in New York, which robs the cities of their ex cise income and gives it to the hayseed districts. If Mr. Stokes carries his point he will hear from the people of the cities next (all. New Jersey lg not New York. Mayor Hoos Assailed. The "State Gasette" has also, this morning, an attack on Mayor Hoos of this city, founded on nothing, apparently, save the rumor that Colonel Smith Is likely to be nominated as his successor. The onslaught lias neither point nor meaning nor timeliness. It is low in ex pression. It appears to be a mere gratifi cation of the caddish instincts of the im ported "Editor." It is Interesting to recall that only a tew months ago the "State Gazette” and other Republican organs were lavishing adulation on the Mayor because they thought he couid be induced to break with his party. The Mayor can now. see what treacherous and fickle wretches they are. Oar Champion Banco Man. After using the "ice trust” issue for all it was worth throughout the campaign, Theodore Roosevelt yesterday, officially, is Governor of New York, ruled that there was not enough in It even to war rant an investigation. What a scrupulous and conscientious gentleman Roosevelt is! Even Griggs Can Be Libelled. There is not a Jerseyman, whatever his politics may be, or how much he may condemn the political methods of John W. Griggs of Paterson, who will believe the story published in the Springfield “Republican” that Mr. Griggs’s famous army canteen opinion was inspired by the fact that he had been and expected to be again the counsel of the National Liquor Dealers’ Association at a salary of^ $25,000 a year. It did not need the denial of Mr. Griggs’s friends that he was ever the counsel of the Liquor Dealers or expected to be when he left the Cabinet, to convince his fellow citizens that the Springfield “Re publican's” story was the meanest kind of a He. We despise and abominate Griggs, but wanton slander is still more abhorrent to us. AMUSEMENTS. Academy of Music. A rare dramatic treat is promised to patrons of the Academy of Music next week, when a splendid scenic revival of "Siberia,” Bartley Campbell's famous ro tnantio melodrama, will be given. Although two decades have elapsed since this drama first achieved popularity It is attracting as large audiences this season as ever. No more convincing proof could be furnished that it is just such a play as the people demand. A thrilling and pa thetic story of life, love and Nihilism in the domain of the Czar is unfolded. No more remarkable spectacle could be imag ined than that afforded by men and wom en of refinement driven into exile in com pany with crowds of the lowest and vilest criminals. The refined looking prisoners are Nihilists, or have been accused of being such—which frequently amounts to the same thing in Russia. The opportunity thus afforded the designing and unscrupu lous to rid themselves of their enemies is .... mo obvious. The play tells of a young Rus sian maiden who is so ruthlessly persecut ed by a vicious noble that in desperation she wounds him with her dagger. He ex tricates himself from a most compromis ing position by promptly declaring that she is a Nihilist. She is forthwith exiled to Siberia, but is accompanied thither by her lover who has joined the Czar's army and acts as guard to the prisoners. He befriends the unfortunate girl in banishment and finally succeeds in affect ing her escape, whereupon they embark for America. Exceptional opportunities are offered for scenic display in "Siberia" and they have been fully taken advantage of by the management. The first scene represents a market place near Moscow’, with the long bridge spanning the river in the fore ground, while the great mosque looms up in the distance. A view of the Interior of the Governor General’s palace is next pre sented. to be followed by a representation of the Palace of Justice. The prison-mines of snow clad Siberia are then shown; a view of the harbor of Odessa is the clos ing picture. An exceptionally capable company has been engaged to enact the play. There will be the usual Wednesday and Saturday Matinees and an extra Matinee will be given on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day. Boo Ton. Miaco and Fulton’s Jolly Grass Widows which opens at the Bon Ton for one week, commencing Monday matinee, November 26, is said to be one of the finest organ ization of Its kind on the road. It com bines all the best features of burlesque and vaudeville and there is not a dull moment from beginning to end. The cur tain rises on a merry French frolic en titled, “The Widow's Wedding Night,” in which the entire company appears. The piece is headed by M'lle Dika and Carrie Fulton and the pretty and graceful chorus slever comedians, costumes and scenery are many degrees beyond those seen with the average burlesque attraction. “The Sign of the Red Light” brings the show to a close. This is in three scenes and is a real laugh producer. In the vaudeville portion are Paulo and Dika, gay Parisians Hodge. Hayward and Lancaster, Imperial Trio; Lorenz and Halpin, in a clever sketch; Howard and Moore, Hebrew character artists; Miss Gussie Vivian, soubrette, and Allen and Allen, eccentric Yfoo Small of the Book That is where some people feel weak all the time. They are likely to be despondent and it is not unusual to find them borrowing trouble as if they hadn’t enough already. The fact Is their kidneys are weak, either naturally or because of sickness, exposure, worry or other Influences. “I am thankful to say.” writes J. L. Camp bell, of Sycamore. 111., “ that Hood’s Sarsapa rilla has cured me. Far many years I was troubled with backache. At times I was so bad 1 bad to be helped from the bed or chair. I am now well and strong and free from pain.” What this great medicine did for him it has done for others. Head's Sarsaparilla Promises to cure and keeps the promise. Begin treatment with Hood's today. ■■ '... . comedy acrobats. Between the vaudeville acts are Introduced a series of living pic tures. Manhattan Theatre. After eight weeks of artistic and finan-' clal success, Grace George in “Her 'Majes ty" will be compelled to retire from the Manhattan Theatre, New York, December 1, to give place to Lulu Glaser In the new comic opera "Sweet Anne Page;" this Is to be followed In turn by "The Burgo master.” There is a nightly scene of en thusiasm when Miss George is summoned again and again before the curtain in re sponse to applause bearing the ring of spontaneity and sincerity. Her delightful impersonation of the girl queen in this virile and vital romantic play has brought her into popularity and built up for her a great and loyal following. The romantic ism and stirring love adventure of "Her Majesty” appeal forcefully to all sorts of people. Women flock In throngs to the matinees and beseech Miss George with requests for autographs and photographs. The fight for popularity is more than half won when a new star commands the sym pathetic interest of her own sex. Miss George has taken a commanding place, although youngest of the younger women stars, and her future is certain to be rich in achievement. There are but three more matinees, in cluding the special holiday performance Thanksgiving afternoon. MUSICAL MATTERS. Dohnanyi to Play Again.

V. A. FARRON, 255 Ogden Ave., Chicago, III USE ONLY PAINE’S CELERY COMPOUND NEW GAME IN HOBOKEN Politicians Are Studying Astrology for What There Is In It. There’s a tin root on the City Hall In Hoboken and when the janitor heard heavy tramping on it the other night he thought it would be well to investigate. Ascending the ladder leading to the scut tle he poked his head through the open ing and was surprised to find eight mem bers of the Common Council and four other city officials engaged in earnest study of the stars. The incident has led to the discovery that Hoboken states men have, in a characteristically enter prising spirit, taken up the study of astrology. It appears that they were so expressed with the manner in which a local pro fessor of the mystic science forecasted results in the last election that they have come to the conclusion that a knowledge of it Is as desirable to men engaged in practical politics as skill in carrying elec tion districts, getting the best of primary fights or any other of the praiseworthy accomplishment in which Hoboken states men are so prolific. They have engaged the professor re ferred to to Initiate them in the mysteries of his ancient lore and the by-weekly seances at which this knowledge is dis pensed are becoming quite the thing for aspiring office holders of all parties and creeds. Councilman John Fitzpatrick is the moving spirit and recognized high priest of this new political cult. His views on astrology are rather unique. ‘‘You see it’s this way.” he replied, when asked about it. ‘‘We’re in this thing because we think it will advance our possibilities as public officials. When the professor who Is now putting us next to the graft hit things off so straight in the last election it struck me that there was more in it than some wise dubs think. Why, I asked my colleagues, if one is able to cast one's own political horoscope, can’t he put reverse English on the charts and things and make it come out rosy? Why can’t one get used to the game, in other words, and know what to do with his trump cards? "That’s the end of the proposition we’re working up.. We want to be able to tell how things go by the stars and copper our chances If the straight bets go wrong. That’s the whole secret of political astrology, a^s we understand it, and when we get things down pat we expect to be invincible. It’s a great graft, you may depend upon it.” * THE MOUNTAIN ROSE Rehearsals for the production of “The Mountain Rose," a four-act drama, by St. Michael's players on next Monday, Tues day, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, are progressing finely and It promises to ' be one of the best dramatic successes ever achieved In St. Michael's Hal).

(Special to “The Jersey City News.”) NEWARK, Nov. 22, 1900—Essex County is the pivot upon which now hinges the decisions of the contest for the speaker ship of the House of Assembly. The votes of the Essex County delegation may de cide whether that honor is to go to Pas saic or Camden County. What the Essex delegation will do is as much a puzzle as ever, and the assemblymen themselves are keeping quiet and awaiting developments, with the idea of securing as much as pos sible in the way of patronage before pledging themselves to any one. There is much speculation as to where Assemblyman Vivian Lewis obtained the twelve votes he claims are pledged to help him to the speaker's chair, and it is open ly questioned whether he can hold even these votes should United States Senator Sewell's desire to see Assemblyman Wil liam J. Bradley occupy the chair, which has so far - been only suggested by the assemblyman’s friends, be openly an nounced. Assemblyman Lewis is banking his chances for the position upon the statement that neither General Sewell nor any of the other leaders will interfere in the contest but the general belief is that the party leaders will express their wishes plainly enough before the House caucus, which will probably be held early in De cember. When tne Essex assemDiymen neia a conference last Friday night and launch ed Assemblyman J. Harry Bacheller's boom for the leadership of the majority, It was understood that nothing should be done or any pledges made to any one that would in any way jeopardize Mr. Bachel ier’s chances or prevent Essex from se curing patronage in the distribution of Assembly appointments. All*the members declare that this rule has been strictly adhered to up to the present time. No effort has been made to force the unit rule upon the delega tion, and it is said that no such attempt will be made, several of the members Insisting that, even should a majority of the delegation vote for such a rule, they will refuse to be bound by it. No confer ence will be held by the Essex delegation this week, and Mr. Bacheller, the chair man of the delegation, said this morning that he did not know when the members would get together again. His leadership boom, he said, was flourishing nicely, and he thought his chances were good. It is known that efforts have been made by friends of Mr. Lewis to make a combi nation whereby the Passaic County man would be pledged the eleven Essex votes for the Speakership, in return for which the twelve votes Mr. Lewis claims to have at his command would be swung into line to secure Mr. Bacheller’s election as lead er. Members of the Essex delegation ad mit that such a proposition has been made, but deny that the combination has been effected, or is likely to be. “While Lewis has friends in the Essex delegation,” said an Assemblyman this morning, "it may be safely said that there is not a majority of the delegation | ready to make such a combination, or i they would have used their power to bind the delegation to the unit rule. Es sex wishes to be perfectly fair to both the Speakership candidates, but the mem bers have not forgotten that Mr. Brad ley withdrew his claims to the position last year in favor of Assemblyman Ben jamin F. Jones, and this fact may have an important bearing upon the final ac tion of the delegation. "Then, besides, the size of the Essex delegation entitles this county to a fair consideration in the distribution of other house o..ces, and it -if not at all likely ~ t any combination will be made that that any combination will be made that will be apt to at all endanger our chances of securing this patronage.” CORPORATION NOTICE NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS.
