When Governor Voorhees started out to make straight the way of Franklin Mur phy to the Republican nomination for : Governor, he evidently took upon his hands a harder task than he realised. Although It is only lately that this deal, which the Governor insists is not a deal, has begun to attract attention, It is evi dent that It has been in operation almost trom the beginning of Governor Voor bees’s term of office. A few years ago J. Frank Fort loomed Up as a candidate for Governor. The Bpeecu which he made in nominating Garrett A, Hobart for Vice President and his breesy, aggressive manner on the Btump had made him popular with the rank and file of New Jersey Republicans gnd an exceedingly dangerous man as a gubernatorial possibility. So he was Shelved on the Supreme Court bench. Then came David O. Watkins, one of the best and most popular speakers that ever presided over a New Jersey Assembly. He was the idol of the South Jersey Re publicans, and it began to look as though he also would make trouble for the slated candidate In the nominating convention. Governor Voorhees and the other leaders. Interested In keeping the way clear for the chosen candidate, got together in due time, and bringing their combined pres sure to beat- upon Washington secured gor Mr. Watkins the office of United States District Attorney. The case of young Mr. Pitney Is too recent to need more than a passing mention. It Is not to be wondered at, then. if any enterprising Republican lawyer anywhere in the State, who coveted a soft position in the Judiciary, should start to work up a gubernatorial boom for himself. This is exactly what Charles A. Reed, the level-headed and able Senator from Som erset county, has done. Mr. Reed is ambitious to be a Judge of some kind. He realms the distinction which a seat on a New Jersey bench confers and he fully appreciates all the benefits which appertain to it. He has also seen, from Governor Voorhees’s course, that one of the surest ways to achieve his ambition Is to become a candidate for Governor. He and his friends, therefore, have been trotting him out as the heir to whatever Interest young Mr. Pitney may have had In the nomination, and he has succeeded !a having his candidacy taken seriously |»y several newspapers, it is apparent that his well laid scheme will be crowned (With success, for it was whispered around Trenton, yesterday, that Mr. Reed is to be .one of the two new Vice Chancellors ■rhom the Legislature, it is expected, will Create this session. As each candidate is thus provided for, fend the Judicial positions become less and less available, the Governor’s task of keeping every opponent out of the way becomes harder and harder. There is al ready reason to fear that the supply of pap will utterly give out before the State Convention meets in August or Septem ber. He cannot seat the whole State on the bench, yet experience shows that this policy of buying of rivalries produces, on the average, two perils for each one that !• averted. How that Ur. Reed’s price is fixed and practically paid, all the sharps have their •yes and ears open to see who the next Claimant will be. • What is the matter with Plavel McGee? Mr. Mnlur'i Bad BUI. Assemblyman Ellis Meeker of Elisabeth has come te the front this session with a large number ef bills, which, aside from Whatever merit they may possess, .have attracted a great deal of attention throughout the State. One which will In terest every taxpayer was introduced on Monday, and provides that all moneys re ceived from the taxation of miscellaneous corporations shall be paid to the State School Fund. The claims which Mr. Meeker makes for this measure are specious and he advances them with a plausibility worthy of a better cause. The school tax, he says, has come to be • serious burden from which the people should be relieved. The Income from ri parian lands, which is the mainstay of the school fund, is now only about *200. flOO with no very certain prospect of its being increased. Last year the school tag in this State amounted to *2,333,550, while the Income derived from miscel laneous corporations was 11,492,71940. This tax on miscellaneous corporations in creased last year *523,665.22. Mr. Meeker argues that there Is every reason to be lieve that the Increase will grow in the next few years In the same, if not a greater, ratio, and in a short time, with the amount already derived from the school fund, it will be sufficient to defray the expenses of the State's entire system •f education. This would abolish the school tax, which, Mr. Meeker declares, forms from 20 to 25 per cent, of the tax bill of most citizens, and would be a welcomed relief to the taxpayer. The first question which suggests itself, in reply to Mr. Meeker's "argument,” is: What effect would the taking of this amount from the State fund have upon the expenses of running the State gov ernment? The gross receipts of the State last year were $3,463,296.71, and all the dis bursements amounted to $2,701,226.97. Had the tax for miscellaneous corporations been taken out, there wpuld not have been enough left to pay the disburse ments. But over $600,000 of these, Mr. Meeker points out, were extraordinary expenditures, and should his bill become a law there would still be enough, he claims, to pay all the expenses of run ning the government, even on a liberal scale. Of course all Mr. Meeker's pleas are humbug and demagoguery of the shal lowest sort. First of all, we cannot abol ish the item of “Extraordinary expenses." On the contrary, it will grow greater every year. The State Prison is insuffi cient; the Rahway Reformatory is unfin ished; we need a similar institution for females; we need a State Industrial Home; we need more commodious build ings for the State 1 jme for Girls at Trenton; we need more commodious quarters for the Insane; we need a new Normal School; we need improvements in the State Capitol; we ought to spend more money on road building. Are we to stop all these things simply in order to reduce the school tax? But would the abolition of the school tax in this way be a fair or just meas ure? Plainly no! The Miscellaneous Corporations fund is the property of the cities of the State. Seventy-five per cent, of the tax is paid from Hudson county, and practically all the balance from Camden and Essex. Then why should the money be used to relieve Cumberland and Ocean and War ren of their just responsibilities? Mr. Meeker’s bill is simply a new scheme of plunder in the interests of the hayseed element. Its real design is not to get a new law on the statute books but to build up a boom for Meeker in the rural districts. AMUSEMENTS. Academy of Muiio. The grand spectacular production of “Near the Throne," W. J. Thorold’s romantic drama of the Orient founded on his popular novel of the same title, will be presented at the Academy for one week beginning next Monday evening. February 11. It Is said the scenic and cos tumle display is marvellous, surpassing all the records of most theatrical mana gers for beauty and splendor. "Near the Throne” is laid in the City of Cairo in Egypt in 1799, during the Napoleonic con quest of the land of Cleopatra. The first act of the new play represents a garden in the panoramic city; luxuriant palm trees, beautiful acacias and white lotus flowers make of It an earthly paradise. And in the distance you sde the defiant pyramids on the hanks of the Nile, as it creeps in from the sandy desert. The sec ond act discloses an Egyptian room which is used as a surgery for the French army; with its characteristic architecture and furniture not to speak of taborets, lan guorous divans, and rich Oriental hang ings, it looks like one of the picturesque chambers of the legendary East—and through a large open window are seen the minarets of mosques and the quaint houses of Cairo. The third act pictures a terrace in front of the palace of Sala din, with an embankment on the Nile; it .s night, the Oriental moon and uncon quered stars are shining ominously while a barge floats dreamily down the river on the opposite shore, on which are seen the ruins of crumbling temples. Those who have beheld this scene already, say it is one of marvellous Eastern loveliness and grandeur. The fourth act represents the throne room in the Citadel which is sug gestive of the pristine magnificence of the Pharaohs; pillars of granite, steps of mar ble guarded on either side by a sphynx of basalt—the whole chamber decorated with superb purple hangings KanhattM Theatre, In the new Clyde Fitch play, “Lovers’ Lace," the Manhattan Theatre has foued one of the greatest successes ever credit ed to this versatile and popular young dramatist. It scored a remarkable tri umph upon its first night, and will gain as great and enduring popularity as “ ’Way Down East,” which it resembles only in the fact that it is pastoral in theme. It is not an ideal of the farm yard and hay mow, but a remarkably clever and realistic portrayal of the church and social conditions existing in a small New England town. Like all the Clyde Fitch plays it is daring and uncon ventional, is crisply witty and satirical, is peopled with quaint and distinctive types ot character and is aglow with charming sentiment. The love story of the young village clergyman is delightful ly unfolded, and the piece is admirably piayed. Nothing more exquisitely beauti ful than'Wm. A. Brady’s staging of this play has ever been seen upon a New York stage. “Lovers’ Lane" will be a sensation. ELKS RAISED THEIR FLAG.

NORMAL SCHOOLS Chairman Garrison's Life Made Miserable by the Various Schemes. MARKS PLEADS FOR HUDSON Everything Promised the Committee From Junket to Free Sites. [Special to “The Jersey City News."! TRENTON. Feb. 7, 1901,-Chairman Samuel L. Garrison, of the House Com mittee on Education, has had trouble dur ing this week at the State House. Mr. Garison bears the reputation of being a clear-headed man, whose long experience in newspaper work has given him the fac ulty of seeing just about as far into a millstone as the next man. But with all shrewdness the Morris man is in a quan dary, and all on account of of the halg dozen bills for the establishment of a State Normal School in as many different ; parts of the State, which bills have been referred to his committee. Assemblyman Williams, of Essex, submitted the first of the Normal School bills, which provides for the appropiation of $250,000 for the er ection of a school in East Orange. Next came a bill from Mr. Davidson, of Pas saic, asking for $200,000 for a Normal School in that city. Not to be outdone by the Republicans, Mr. Marks, of Hudson, introduced a/ bill for $300,000 for a school in Jersey City. Chairman Bacheller of the Essex dele- j gation is next on the list. He only wants i $200,600 for a Normal School in Newark. Mr. Lord, who hails from Orange, asks for $250,600 for a school, but, -beyond nam- ; ing Essex County as the location of his J school, he does not designate any par- ; ticular place. Assemblyman Titloteon, of j Bergen, thinks the ideal place for such a school is Englewood, where he resides. He would like the Legislature to give $200,000 for the erection of the necessary building at that place. Over in the Senate, Mr. Stokes, of Cum berland, stands as sponsor for a bill for a “State normal school of Southern New Jersey," the preferred location to be at Millville. The Cumberland Senator asks for $250,000 for the Institution. The list is completed by a bill fathered by Senator Cross, of Union, who advocates the plac ing of the school at Summit. Mr. Cross mentions no sum of money in his bill, being willing to leave the settlement of that part of the question to the Com mittee on Appropriations. -Naturally, every man who has a Nor- 1 mal School bill in the Legislature is anx ious to have his bill go through, even if none of the others succeed. And Mr. Garrison, of the Committee on Education, is the recipient of many attentions on the part of the legislators. “We want that school in Englewood.” said Mr. Tillotson. “Just to show you people what an ideal place that is for such a school, I will invite the Legisla ture to come out there and see for your selves. We will entertain you and show you around the place, and you will agree with me that there is no place like Engle wood for a State Normal School. We will see to it that you do not leave us fasting, as we will arrange to give the members a good dinner while you are in the town.” “We will do better than that out our way,” came the amendment from Mr. Davidson. “We will give you the site for the building, and if you will come out to look us over we will do all that the Englewood people promise in the way of entertainment and more, too. Just give us a chance.” "We can offer you a broad field for educational work, bordering on the me tropolis of the western hemisphere," put in Mr. Marks. “Ours is the largest county in the State, and if there is to be another school we believe you should consider our claims.” I have a better scheme than all that," was Mr. Lord’s remark. "We can offer you a site—I have a man who will give it gladly to the State—for a normal school. You would get the site for nothing and could spend the money, which otherwise would go for the purchase of a site, in building and equipping a school that would be a credit to the State.” "That's real nice, and I would like to see the school established In Essex coun ty,” spoke up Mr. Bacheller. “But the real proper place for the school is in Newark, the largest city in the State, the centre of population and the centre of the educational portion of our common wealth. There is no place in the State where so many people would be benefited by a school of that kind as Newark. "The school would be easily reached from Jersey City, where Mr. Marks lives; from Orange, the home of Mr. Lord; East Orange, where Mr. Williams is interested; from Pasaic, represented in this Legisla ture by Mr. Davidson and others, and even Mr. Tillotson’s constituents in Ber gen would find it easy of access. I am not authorized to make any promises or pledges, but I have seen the president of our Newark Board of Education quoted in the newspapers as saying that the New ark Board will willingly give to the State not only a site on one of our principal streets, close to the centre of the city, but will also throw In the building which served us for years as our High School building.” Mr. Garrison listens to all the pleas and promises, strokes his silvery beard and asys nothing until he Is fairly cornered. “What are you going to do about my Normal School bill?” is the question that meets 'him at every turn. “My bill Is In your committee, you know.” "Yes, and there It is likely to stay,” Is the usual answer. "Now, see here, Garrison, you and I live in the same county. In the summer time, I meant," said Mr. Bacheller. "You ought to know that Newark is the right place, and then you ought to vote for my j hill, because you know my people up that way. We want that school in Newark, and we want you to report my hill favor ably.” The committee hasn't sat yet on the bills,” responded Mr. Garrison, “but I think—I think—yes, I am almost sure, that the committee will sit on some of them soon—and sit real hard on them, too.” “Say, Garrison, I’ll tell you -what,” and the Essex chairman spoke as one inspired, “just report my bill favorably and get it out on the floor and let's have a fight over it. We can have a good fight if you will do that. These other fellows will ajl be in my wool, and all you have to do is to just Bit there and enjoy the fun.” “I’ll see about it,” said the Morris man, and that was all they could get from him. But he called a meeting of the com mittee for yesterday and invited all the normal school people of the House to at tend. Mr. Williams, of East Orange, was reported sick and unable to be on hand. The others voiced their sentiments^ with A NEW DEPARTURE A New Effectual and Convenient Cnre for Catarrh. Of catarrh remedies, there is no end, but of catarrh cures there has always been a great scarcity. There are many remedies to relieve, but very few that really cure. The old practice of snuffing salt water through the nose would often relieve and the washes, douches, powders and enhal ers in common use are very little. If any, belter than the old fashioned salt water douche. The use of inhalers and the application of salves, washes and powders to the nose and throat to cure catarrh Is no riore reasonable than to rub the back to cure kidney disease. Catarrh is Just as much a blood disease as kidney trouble or rheu matism and It cannot be cured by local treatment any more than they can be. To cure catarrh, whether in the head, throat or stomach an internal antiseptic treatment is necessary to drive the ca tarrhal poison out of the blood and sys tem, and the new catarrh cure is design ed on this plan and the remarkable suc cess of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets is be cause being used internally, it drives out catarrhal infection through action upon stomach, liver and bowels. Wm. Zimmerman of St. Joseph, relates an experience with catarrh which is of value tc millions of catarrh sufferers everywhere. He says, "X neglected a slight nasal catarrh until It gradually ex tended to my throat and bronchial tubes and finally even my stomach and liver be came affected, but as I was able to keep up and do a day's work I let it run along until my hearing began to fall me and then I realized I must get rid of catarrh or lose my position as I was clerk and my hearing was absolutely necessary. Some of my friends recommended an in naler, another a catarrh salve but they were no good in my case, nor was any thing else until I heard of Stuart s Ca tarrh Tablets and bought a package ai my drug store. They benefited me from the start and in less than four months I was completely cured of catarrh allhougn I had suffered nearly all my life from it. They are pleasant to take and so much more convenient to use than other catarrh remedies that I feel I cannot say enough m favor of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets.” A little book on cause and cure of catarrh will be mailed free by addressing F. A. Stuart Co.. Marshall, Mich., and the tablets are sold by all druggists in the United States and Canada. never a kind word from anyone for the East Orange proposition. The session continued for half an hour, without any definite conclusion being arrived at, so far as the commuiee is concerned. After the meeting Assemblyman Gniehtel, of Essex, unburdened himself to his colleagues of . the committee thus:— “Now, if you fellows are going in for ! your own counties, I suppose I will have to do the same. Personally, I think New ark is the right place for the school, but we don't want to. be selfieh, so I will waive Newark and say that I will be will ing to vote for some other place—say East Orange, for instance. There is no use of getting Into a fight over this matter. If , you fellows will do as I am willing to do, ! we can reach a settlement of the whole | question in that way. Uet each man set aside his own ideas, the same as I will do, | and let us unite on East Orange as the j spot.” Chairman Garrison said he agreed with the notion of the Essex man and admired the self-sacrificing disposition manifested by him, but he really must think the mat ter over before he decided to follow the noble example. But there was a funny kind of look in the keen eyes of the Mor ris man as he spoke that led his hearers to think mat he meant much more or less than his words conveyed. The com mittee will meet again next week to talk about tne demands for Normal Schools. But the chances of a favorable report for any of the bills is regarded as slim. In deed. NEW PUBLICATIONS. “North American Review” for Pal mary. Were the motto of the North American Review to be changed, that periodical might well bear the word “Exee.sior” upon that part of the title-page where the famous "Tro» Tyriusque mlhi nullo dis crimlne agetur" has appeared for so many years; for, in the competent hands of Mr. Harvey, it rises month by month to high er excellence. There is scarcely a subject of first-class interest to the general public at the present moment which is not touched upon in the February number. Mark Twain publishes in it the first arti cle he has written since his return from Europe.

Dr. Allan Me Lane Hamilton advocates the revision of the law so as to provide adequate “Legal Safeguards of Sanity and Protection of the Insane.” Augustine Birrell enumer ates the influences and events which, in his judgment, are the “Causes of the Conservatism of England," J.

Legislative Committee Visits One of the State's Most Beneficial Institu tions. [Special to “The Jersey City Newfl.“l TRENTON, Feb. 7, 1901.—Members of Senate and House, comprising the Joint committee on State hospitals, mads their annual visit of Inspection to the State Village for Epileptics, at the farm near Skillman station, yesterday. The law makers were met at the station by the superintendent, Dr. Henry M. Weeks, who escorted them through the buildings, ex plaining the workings of the place and the method of treatment in detail. The physician had any number of features of the place to call the attention of the vis itors to, and he made the most of his opportunity. There are nineteen patients now under treatment at the Village, of whom eight are females. The superin tendent reports that there have been many applications for admission received from all parts of the State. There has been comparatively little sickness at the Village since the last inspection, and only one death has occurred In the Village during the last year. When the accommodations at the origi nal structure, which before the establish ment of the village served as the resi dence of the then owners, began to crowd the patients, the managers had a smaller building, formerly used as a toolhouse, moved up to the end of the dwelling house, the celling raised and the entire interior lined with yellow pine wainscot ing, thus providing a place for culinary purposes. Both buildings are now in use, one being occupied by the male patients and attendants, the other by the fe males. The physicians lay great stress on the necessity of providing convenient, cheer ful furnishings for the use of patients as a necessary feature of the treatment. The two cottages now nearing com pletion will furnish accommodations for ICO patients, fifty of each sex, but as these are all to be adults the management is anxious that some arrangements shall be made for the treatment of children. Those in charge say that the younger the pa tient the better the result, and they urge that steps be taken promptly in that di rection. There are many epileptic patients who should be removed from the insane asylums, almshouses and other institu tions and brought to the village, thus affording relief both to the patients and to the overcrowded institutions,where, ac cording to Superintendent Weeks, they are now improperly cared for. The mana gers of the village asks that the State provide means for the erection of four more cottages during this year, two for adults and two others to accommodate thirty children each, with a schoolroom to each. The arrangement, the superin tendent believes, would suffice for sev eral years. Attention was called to the dilapidated condition of the farm buildings, at the “Fernwood” end of the village, the need ed repairs to which would cost almost as much as new buildings. Dr. Weeks says that In order to carry out the fundamental principles of the vil lage it Is necessary that the patients have regular and systematic employment, and he advises that an industrial building be erected as early as possible. “The farm and gardens do not afford sufficient occupation for the male pa tients,” said Dr. Weeks, “and all pa tients are not adapted for this kind of employment. Occupation can be furnished for the women in housework, sewing and such pursuits, but with the men the prob lem is mole difficult.” The managers ask for a well-equipped laundry, where the work would be done by the patients; an Ice-house, of 150 tons capacity, in which to store the ice which could be harvested from the brook on the place at comparatively little cost; a sta ble, wagon house, wagons and carriages are among the adjuncts which the super intendent hopes to persuade the Legisla ture to furnish this year. I^asai In all Its stages there should be cleauiiness. Ely’s Cream Balm cleanses, soothes and heals the diseased membrane. It cures catarrh and drives away a cold ia the head quickly.
