Voorhees throughout the State, who have been wondering what was to become of our little Governor when he ceased to gove next January, may set their minds at test and breathe freely. It Is now stated that Mr. Voorhees is to be a Vice Chancellor, and Is to decide matters according to equity and good conscience at Jersey City. The plan evolved to provide for Foster’s declining years contemplates the passage of the bill now before the Legislature providing for two new Vice Chancellors to be up pointed by the Chancellor. One of these is to be appointed as soon as the act be comes operative, but the other place is to remain vacant until next January, when Foster’s term as Governor expires so that he may be given the position. Although the legal term of Vice Chan cellor is seven years, it is practically a life position as a re-appointments is gen erally considered the proper thing, ar.d ‘thus “our own Fossy” will be nicely tak en care of for the remainder of his days. There is a precedent for this deal, in the appointments of Chancellor McGill and Vice Chancellor Robert S. Green, and as the Court of Chancery is for the most part governed by precedent there is no reason to believe that Chancellor Magie will hesitate to carry out his part in the scheme. The fact that Foster is doing what he is told so nicely in all political matters is clear proof that he is deter mined to do his. Am the Appointment* Illegal? The more the recent Executive Juggling with th« Supre e Court is looked into, the more prominent stands forth the base maimer in which New Jersey’s judiciary has been prostituted to further partisan ends. It is a serious question whether the Governor has not exceeded his authority in his appointment of William S. Gum mere to be Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and Mahlon Pitney to be an asso ciate Justice under the existing circum stances. The contention is that the offices, Which these men have been appointed to All under the terms of Chief Justice Sepue's resignation, do not become vacant Until November 13, and that the Governor had no warrant to make the appoint ments until the vacancy actually occurred. The reason for the Governor's action, Whether right or wrong, is apparent. The constitution of the State provides that •‘whenever a vacancy happens during the recess of the Legislature in any office Which Is to be filled by the Governor and Senate, or by the Legislature in joint •ession, the Governor shall fill .such Vacancy and the commission shall expire At the end of the next session of the Legislature unless a successor shall be gooner appointed.” If the Governor should wait until Chief Justice Depue leaves the bench, the vacancy would occur during the recess of the Legislature and he could only appoint tor the intervening time until the Legis lature met in the following January. At tSiat time he wo^ld not be Governor, and there are many shrewd Republican leaders who predict that his successor will be a i Democrat, in which case there Is every reason to believe Mr. Gummere would UOt be made Chief Justice, and a Demo crat would be appointed to the place now given to young Mr. Pitney. It would not be strange if the Governor IMS exceeded his authority In his efforts to carry out the late political deal and grab two important offices for the Re publican party. It would be quite in line With the usual high-handed methods of bU patty. His course may yet cause gr*at embarrassment to the State.. Expert Tumblers. What fufinj- things the organs of the McKinley administration have to do to keep in line with the vagaries of the pres ent national government. Not long ago they were running over with fulsome praise of the ‘'Great American Humorist,” as they called Mark Twain; but now, Since he has seen fit to denounce the Mc Kinley policy of expansion, these s»me organs aay:—"The blight of old age is on Mark Twain.

Whatever atreciee these fiends In human shape committed, they planned from pa triotic motives, as they understand patriotism, and they were every bit as strongly actuated by love of country as George Fred and hi* band of dilet tante*. However, as the world wags, the crude and reactionary ideas of uncivilized and semi-civilized people have to give way to the up to date standards of the Occident. In China, civilization is dealing with a people so inveterately barbarous that nothing but the dread of extreme conse quences will impress them. Civilization is undoubtedly justified in inflicting these ex treme consequences to any extent that may be necessary for its own protection against the barbarian, and even so far as to subject his will and imagination to the domination of the Indo-Caucasian spirit. LAFAYETTE MJ. MUSICAL Ckair Gives a Delightful Entertain ment. The choir of the Lafayette Methodist Church, under the direction of the organ ist, Miss S. L. Culver, gave a successful musical last evening in the church. The attendance was large and the partici pants were the recipients of much well merited aplause. Miss Flora Wittpenn, violinist; Miss C.

FERRY NEWSBOYS’ ROOM Departments Urged to Inter est Themselves in Establishing. One. It would seem as though the audience at each successive meeting of the Wo man's Club grew larger and larger. There must have been fully three hundred women present at yesterday’s meeting in Hasbrouck Hall. It was the regular so cial meeting of the club, and the pro gramme was in the hands of Mrs. E. K. Curtis, Chairman of Philanthropy. One of the first things done was to make Mrs. Alden honorary member. It was voted that a letter of sympathy be sent to Mr. S. D. Mackey, whose de ceased wife was an active and highly es teemed member of the club. The new members were received and Mrs. Newbury In her opening remarks warned the mem bers against vouching for anyone with whom they were not personally ac quainted. The members, she said, were not as particular in this matter as they should be. She even thought it would be best hereafter not to vouch for members of one's own family, for fear the voucher might be bigotted. She would like to see the spirit ae well as the letter of the con stitution carried out, she said. Mrs. George R. Hough and Miss Welsh were appointed a committee to draw up appropriate resolutions on the death of Queen Vivtoria and present at next meet ing. Miss Vermileye, of Englewood, had a few words to say in behalf of the Pali sades, asking the club to send a resolu tion to the New Jersey Legislature for an appropriation toward the cause, and Mrs. B. K. Curtis then took charge of the pro gramme, making a brief introductory ad dress, in which she set forth the work of the Philanthropy Department. It had held twelve meetings, with an average atten dance of 22 7-12, thirteen being the least and thirty-two the greatest number pres ent at a meeting. At a euchre held in No vember over $126 had been raised for the Organized Aid work room, which now had a balance in the treasury of $139.13. Mrs. Curtis then Introduced Mrs. E. E. Williamson, of the State Board of Chil dren’s Guardians and Honorary Federa tion Secretary, who spoke on “A News boys’ Room.” "You all go to New York,” said Mrs. Williamson, “You go there to shop and you go there for amusement, but you take the trolley. You ride as near the ferry doors as possible and you go as quickly as possible to the boats. Do any of you ever realize the little mass of humanity round those ferry doors struggling to make a living. "I love children. You all know the bat tle I fought in the State, and the battle I mean to fight to the end. A boy always appeals to me, and I could not come into town every day without noticing those little newsboys. Perhaps you will not all agree with men when I tell you they are noble little fellows. We all wish they could be In school—I never could talk with my gloves on,” removing the obstacles; "they seem to stop the gray matter In the brain—They are little factors in the home, often the support of the home. They always run to open the ferry doors for me and now I notice they do it for other women. "There are several hours In the day, be- | tween issues, when these boya are not employed, when they have nothing to do i but play craps in the street. They are generous hearted little fellows and i have never seen a street fight between them, though I suppose they nave them. I pro posed to the Citizens' Aid that it should^ open a newsboys’ room with a superin tendent—an enthusiastic young man who didn’t want too much salary—and with a bath in back, one of those baths that does not need a bath tub and does not cost much, but that the boys enjoy so much. 1 spoke to Miss Bradford about it and she said, 'Go ahead.’ The greatest boys’ work in the State of New Jersey is done right down in Whittier House, and thought it might be considered trespass ing. though I couldn’t see why. "I have offered to bear half the ex pense of opening this room myself, but 1 want it to be a movement organized by the Woman’s Club, and if each wom an present would guarantee to raise two dollars there would be sufficient funds to run it a year. We want the vacant store in the P.' R. R. building, but the -rail road men say they are afraid it will be a nuisance. They have taken the matter all the way to Philadelphia for consider- j ation, but I am going to Philadelphia my- ; self tomorrow to see what can be done.” ' Mrs. Williamson also spoke of the need of children’s courts. There were three; things, she said, Jersey City needed, a separate court for trying children, a home for delinquents, and a law for the parol- ; ing of children to this court. Mrs. Newbury then brought the matter of the newsboys’ room before the club, and it was moved and seconded that a committee be appointed to look into it. Miss Harvey here rendered a .violin solo, and Dr. M. F. DeHart, the next | speaker, was introduced. Her subject! was, “Some Early Philanthropists,” and she spoke of Mary Woolstoncraft, Lu cretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Martha Wright and Anne McClintock as the philanthropic pioneers who had brought about the change in woman’s condition. She spoke of the. early tem perance workers, saying:— "In their work to relieve the wives or drunkards they met with many difficul ties arising fr6m the laws which made women helpless and dependent. Women could not have the custody of their chil dren, and the husbands could take their wives earnings to spend for drink, mak ing the children paupers. It was their ex perience In those reforms which Induced these early philanthropists to turn their attention to the civil, political and social position of woman and to endeavor to have the laws changed which bor£_ so heavily on married women, and to change that public sentiment which opposed their fullest development.” Dr. De Hart then described the first Woman's Rights convention in 1848, the proceedings of which, she said, were os tentatiously published and ridiculed, but the women who called that first conven i tion have continued to work fifty years ! for the cause, “so that now women can ! hold property, have equal rights in the : children, make a will If they are fortunate ; enough to have money, and control their own earnings. “Women's clubs,” continued the speak er, “now so common all over the country, were once looked upon as almost revolu tionary and many feared they would de stroy the home and corrupt society. Sorosls was the first club In New York and Alice CaTey Its first president." The doctor then quoted from Alice Ca rey's Inaugural address, In which she said:— ‘ “We have proposed to enter our protest against Idle gossip, all demoralising and wicked waste of time, against the follies and tyrannies of fashion, against all ex ternal disabilities; in short, against every thing that opposes the full development and use of the facilities conferred upon us by our Creator. "Now that we do not have to weave and spin.” concluded the speaker, “we can investigate social problems and try to find the causes and cure of the many evils that still afflict so iety. Perhaps the next century will see us so far advanced that w* shall have outgrown the need of lunatic asylums, hospitals, reformatories andjirtjqn*, all being sane and good, and STRANGER THAN FICTION. . A Remedy Which Hu Revelutioa ised the Treatment of Stomach Troubles. The remedy is not heralded as a won derful discovery, nor yet a secret patent medicine, neither is it claimed to cure anything except dyspepsia, indigestion and stomach troubles with which nine out of ten suffer. TWe remedy is in the form of pleasant tasting tablets or lozenges, containing vegetable and fruit essences, pure aseptic pepsin (government test), golden seal and diastase. The tablets are sold by drug gists under the name of Stuart’s Dys pepsia Tablets. Many interesting experi ments to test the digestive power of Stuart's Tablets show that one grain of the active principle.contained in them is sufficient to thoroughly digest 3,000 grains of raw meat, eggs and other wholesome food. Stuart’s tablets do not act upon the bowels like after dinner pills and cheap cathartics, which simply irritate and in flame the intestines without having any effect whatever in digesting food or cur ing indigestion. If the stomach can be rested and assist ed in the work of digestion It will very soon recover its normal vigor, as no or gan Is so much abused and overworked as the stomach. This is the secret, if there Is any secret, of the remarkable success of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, a remedy practically unknown a few years ago and now the most widely known of any treatment for stomach weakness. This success has been secured entirely upon its merits as a digestive pure and simple because there can be no stomach trouble if the food is promptly digested. Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets act entirely on the food eaten, digesting It completely, so that it can be assimilated into blood, nerve and tissue. They cure dyspepsia, water brash, sour stomach, gas and bloat ing after meals, because they furnish the digestive power which weak stomachs lack and unless that lack is supplied it is useless to attempt to cure by the use of "tonics,” “pills” and cathartics which have absolutely no digestive power. Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets can be found at all drug stores and the regular use of one or two of them after meals will dem onstrate their merit better than any other argument. it may be that almshouses and the pover ty that makes them necessary will disap pear when a just distribution of the fruits of the earth shall be accomplished in that happy future when the brotherhood of man is a reality and not a dream.” Here the Glee Club sang a three-part song with violin obligato by Mrs. Hall I and Miss Harvey, and Mrs. Cynthia 1 West over Alden, president of the Interna- I tional Sunshine Society, was introduced. | “Very often,” said she. “I wish I could talk like Mrs. Williamson, but I got a secret," taking off her gloves, “and now,” 1 as she held up the bare hands, "if I don't do as well you’ll know it is because j of the color of those gloves.” Mrs. Alden then described the New York 1 office of the Sunshine Society, at No. 96 Fifth avenue, and told some amusing Sunshine incidents. There are no salaries connected with this office ar.d it is very plainly furnished. It consists of but one room, but is to consist of two in a few days, and everything is run on an eco- i nomical basis. The Sunshine Society 1 never asks for money, though some weal- i thy people give money, because they feel i that Is the only way they can do the one ! kind deed a year, the membership fee. “Occasionally,” said Mrs. Alden,'”1 hire a typewriter because I have not yet found one to offer his services, and one has not , found me. The office is run by volunteers during the week, one from Jersey, two from Brooklyn and three from New York, and we close on Sunday. I find more to pass on the Sunshine than I can get to pass it on to. Sunshine, though a philan thropy, cannot be called a charity. One Sunshiner has a liking for patchwork, an other for embroidery, another for pressed flowers and another for old postage stamps, and they all exchange with kind deeds. At Christmas time I had no •trouble in disposing of hundreds of tur keys, but I could not have offered them as charity. We give without charity.I serve you today and you serve me tomor row.” Mrs. Alden told several stories illustra tive of this point, and said she thought she could help the club in ever so many ways when It formed its committee for the newsboys’ rooms. She could get al most anything, she said, through the sun shine movement. “I got a cow once. I was going to tell you the story this afternoon, but it is too late, so I will tell It at a sunshine meet ing at the residence of Mrs. Brice Collard on Valentine’s Day.” The meeting then adjourned for refresh ments and sociability.

WAS NO VACANCY Chief Justice Depue However Says That Everything Is All Right. [Special to "The Jersey City News.”l THENTON, Feb. 8, 1901.—"When a va cancy happens during the recess o£ the Legislature In any office which is to be filled by the Governor and Senate or by the Legislature In joint meeting, the Gov ernor shall fill such vacancy and the com mission shall expire at the end of the next session of the Legislature, unless a suc cessor shall be sooner appointed." Ex cerpt from article 5 of the Constitution of New Jersey. In that brief part of the State Consti tution some of the lawyers in this and other cities find ground for questioning the recent action of Governor Foster M. Vdorhees In the appointment of Justice William S. Gummere to be Chief Justice to succeed David A. Depue, ana the fur ther appointment of Senator Mahlon Pit ney to take Mr. Gummere's place on the bench. Both appointments were made l*y the Governor and confirmed by the Sen ate, to take effect November 16 next. Lawyers who claim to have looked into the matter take the ground that, as the resignations of Chief Justice Depue and Justice Gummere are not to take effect, until November 15, the offices now held by them will not become vacant until that time, and as the Legislature of 1901 will have adjourned sine die long before that time, the vacancies so created will "happen during the recess of the Legis lature.” Following this line of argument the lawyers in question insist that, under the Constitution, the Governor should then, and not before, “fill such vacancies,” and that the commissions of the justices so appointed “shall expire at the end of the next session of the Legislature, unless their successors shall be sooner appoint ed.” The argument is made that if the Gov ernor can make appointments to date nine months ahead, in anticipation of a va cancy, there Is no reason why he should not go right on and name the men for the various positions which will become vacant next year, by the termination of the terms to which the present office holders were appointed. “Just suppose,” said a Newark lawyer today, "that the present Governor should resign or die while in office. He would, under the Constitution of the state, be succeeded by the president of the Senate, 'Mahlon Pitney, the man whom the Ex ecutive haa named for justice of the Su preme Court. “Mr. Pitney could not very well be justice and acting governor at the same time. There would be no end of sompli cations arise form that contingency. Again, Governor Voorhees’s term expires in January nevt, so that the next Legis lature will convene under his successor. “The next Governor may not take the [ same view of things that Mr. Voorhees does and may not want Mr. Gummere for Chief Justice, or Mr. Pitney for Jus tice, particularly if the next Governor should happen to be a Democrat. Or the next Legislature may be Democratic and not inclined to confirm the two men nam ed by the present Governor. "To my thinking, the action of the Governor is a clear violation of his power as Sxecutive and is contrary to the pro visions of the Constitution.” Chief Justice Depue ©miled when asked about the situation. The venerable jurist was busy in his library when a reporter called there, hut he laid aside his work and listened attentively to the query. "Governor Voorhees acted fully within his right as Governor in the course he hae taken and in accordance with my wishes,” said the Chief Justice. "I would not have placed him in the position of violating the constitutional provisions. I did not want to leave the bench by reas on of the expiration of any term, but wished to end my service In the Supreme Court by voluntary resignation. The Gov ernor has my resignation in hand and has named the man who is to succeed me. "If the Governor exceeded his authority in this respect, then I have been holding office illegally for thirty-five years,” the Chief Justice continued, smilingly. “I was appointed to the Supreme Court bench by Governor Marcus L. Ward in February, 1866, the appointment to take effect in November following. “The appointment was confirmed at that session of the Legislature. I waa re-appointed in 1S7S by Governor Parker, in 1880 by Governor Green and in 1894 by Governor Werts. Each of these appoint j ments were made in the same way, dur ! fng the legislative session, and each too i effect in the November following. So that j if the action of Governor Voorhees in i this Instance was in excess of his right, I have been five times illegally appointed.” The attention of the Chief Justice was called to the Constitutional provision here quoted: "My resignation, in the hands of the Governor, creates the vacancy to which Justice Gummere has been appointed,” said the Chief Justice. "The resignation of Justice Gummere creates a second vacancy, to which Mr. Pitney has been appointed. The Governor has provided to fill the vacancies so created and in do ing so has kept within his authority. There is no doubt about that. It is ail right and the Governor has been very kind In the matter; in doing as I had re quested, so that I might finish my thirty five years of service. "My predecessor on the bench. Justice Daniel Haines, who has been Governor of the State, has been appointed in the same way, his appointment and confir mation being made, I think, in February to take effect the following November.” !
