Gentlemen:—We desire, In a friendly gplrlt, to direct your attention to a start ling episode of New York life, which Alls a considerable space in the morning . papers. Mrs. H. w. Pryor, a young lady or some wealth and distinguished position in society, was set upon by a highway rob ber In the heart of one of New York's most fashionable districts, at one o’clock fn the afternoon. She was struck with a bludgeon, knocked down and kicked. Only her great courage and presence of mind saved her life and property. When her resistance terrified the robber and he fled, he ran for three blocks unmolested by any policeman. Only for the lady's de termination in pursuing him with out cries, which gathered a crowd to her aid, he would have escaped, as numerous mur derers, highway robbers and burglars have done in the past year in New York. The state of things, gentlemen, which renders such a daring crime possible in the heart of a great city, is the product of a Bi-Partisan police system. It is a produce of a political contrivance which takes away from the heads of the Police Department ail responsibility, whether personal or political, which makes appointment to the force and pro motion on it a matter of bargain and sale, and which deprives the people of all power of punishing malfeasance or substituting honest for dishonest officials. Under the Bi-Partisan system In New York, murder is committed with impunity, and innocent men are railroaded to the gallows or the prison cell, whenever the police think it desirable to "make a rec ord." Burglary has become common in every part of the city and hardly a day passes without the disclosure of a high way robbery of more or less sensational character. The ruin of young girls has become a recognized profession, and vice owns the streets in all the central and , populous quarters. Ia it your Intention, gentlemen, in your reckless lust for spoils, to inflict these •amt evils upon Newark and Jersey City? We have a respectable police force in this city. The Republican party is repre sented in the Board which control# it by a gentleman who can expose to the public anything evil or corrupt that may transpire in its administration—if there be ■ any such evil or corrupt thing. The ex ecutive head of the force is a Republican; several of the Captains are Republicans; many of the Sergeants and a great num ber of the rank and file are Republicans. What, then, la it that you want? Do you wish to turn the Department into a machine of blackmail and plunder, so that some of you can make something out of it? It would seem so. No other reasonable •kplanation of your course can be made. Will those among you who are honest, fend who have aome regard for the public good, and wbo, incidentally, have political ambition for the future, allow this wicked, this insane design to be accomplished? Do you think the people are as blind as gome of yourselves? Do you think they do not see through your designs? Do you think even the voters of your own party will stand by you in such a crime as this? Think twice, gentlemen, before you do this mad thing! THE JERSEY CITY NEWS, Speaking lor all the People of Jersey City, regardless of party. If eak-r—Notoriety Seeker. The most conspicuous member of the Legislature before the people of the State today is Ellis Meeker, of Union, and he ha* arrived at that position by the num ber and variety of the freak bills which be has Introduced In the Assembly. He began setting people talking by his bill providing for a Lieutenant Governor; which was not so bad, and last week he thrust himself a little more into public view with his absurd and thievish bil Which proposes to devote the taxes re ceived from miscellaneous corporations in the cities of the State to relieving the hay g«ed element totally at the expense, ol maintaining schools for their children. Now, this week, he has added to ills no toriety by Introducing a measure for the abolition of spring elections. As far as can be learned, all his mea sures are without backing, except his own desire for public notoriety. Nobody of importance can be found who wants the school tax abolished or spring elec tions done away with. Even the leaders of his own party and those who favor the anti-spring election idea repudiate both Mr. Meeker and his little bill. They all declare they did not ask him to intro duce it and that they want nothing to do with it. Even if there were merit in the scheme at large, Mr. Meeker's measure is faulty, illogical and by many declared to be un constitutional. There is as little reason, for it as there is probability of its becom ing a law, and it will In all probability peacefully sleep in committee—the sleep that knows no waking. A New York newspaper says, this morn ing, that the Hudson members have promised to vote for the bill, and with the United support of Essex and Hudson it will pass. There is nothing in that statement. The Hudson members are strongly opposed to any scheme which has for its object the abolition of spring elections; they are especially hostile t* such a monstrosity as Mr. Meeker's bill. AMUSEMENTS. Academy of Music. The great sensational central fire sta tion scene in the “Still Alarm which plays at the Academy of Music next week has been augmented this season by the wild run of the engine and horses through the street on their way to the fire. This scene is said to be one of the most realis tic stage effects ever presented. The '‘Still Alarm” is undoubtedly the best play that prolific author, Joseph Arthur, has yet produced. In it his peculiar talent for re alism has done its best work. This has served to make the play as interesting to day as when first produced. Harry Lacy will be Seen here in his original part Jack Manly, and is surrounded by a compe tent cast of players. A Washington Birthday matinee will be given as well as those on Wednesday and Saturday. Broadway Theatre New York. No more magnificent and costly produc tion of opera has ever been made in America than "Vienna Life," which is now running at the Broadway Theatre, New York. From a scenic standpoint, the opera is a feast for the eye. Such a gorgeous succession of stage pictures as are shown in this presentation of Johann Strauss’s new opera have seldom been equalled and never surpassed in this coun try. The curtain has never been raised on the famous white-and-gold ball room scene in the second act without a spon taneous outburst of appreciative “Ahs!" from the audience. A word or two de scriptive of this scene may be of interest. It has been designed and painted by Ern est Albert, one of the foremost stage art ists of the day. The architecture is in the rococo style of Louis XV. The entire scheme of the scene is to represent danc ing. In fact it is called “The Apotheosis of the Dance.” The size of the full ecene is 36 feet deep and 45 feet wide with forty five life-size figures, all dancing, over one hundred cupids to imitate stucco work, and two splendid representations of danc ing alabaster nymphs, on the staircase, in the interstices of the fretwork. Two mag nificent staircases an^ a gallery run around the back of the hall, forming an eccentric ellipse at the back of the stage. A magnificent frieze is painted on the walls in splendid panels, and this is the only color work that breaks the white and-gold effect of the scene. The panels on the rear are 8 feet by 24 feet and re present “The Dance of the Bacchantes.” The right hand panel Is "The Minuet” and the left hand panel “A Country Dance,” and at the extreme back centre is “The Waltz,” az a tribute to Johann Strauss, , the Waltz King, in whose honor the whole scene has been designed. Behind the fret work is a border of pure gold laid on in sheets loosely, so that it trembles and shivers In the lime light, giving a fairyiike and sumptuous effect. On the staircases are four splendid candelabra, which in tensify the purity of the lines of the stair cases and landings. In addition to this beautiful set, the first and last act scenes are marvels of beauty and richness. The last scene—a night view view of the Ca sino at Hietzing, near Vienna—is very ef ! fective and excites aimost as much' com ment as does the ball room scene. A special Washington’s Birthday matinee j will be given on Friday the 22d, and the regular Saturday matinee the. day follow ing. "Vienna Life" is well worth a visit to the Broadway Theatre. ST. PATRICK'S HALL Iron Work Will Prokikly Not Bo lUadf Before July. The Rev. L. C. -M. Carroll of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church received estimates of the iron work for the new parish building from Archi tect Jeremiah O’Rourke of Newark a few days ago. The recent decrease in the price of iron was the opportunity the pastor awaited. He said he would save at least $7,000 by his action in deferring work for about a year. The con- j tracts will t>e awarded shortly. It will take at least six months to get the structural work cast and riveted. There Is little probability of the resumption of labor on the building be fore July. Father Carroll 9aid that he would attend to the carpenter work later. He hoped to have the entire building closed in before January of next year. The cost of the parish hall is Indefinite. Prices in materials vary so that a price is out of the question. The pastor will endeavor to keep the expenses down to a mini mum. There is nothing settled as to the date for ' the corner-stone laying. Bishop Wigger was to ' have celebrated this event. What plans the pastor has in view are unknown. The foundation walls of the building were put up a year ago last November. They were i used to protect the mortar from tht winter elements. The building will be a handsome structure. Hood's Pills Are prepared from Na ture’s mild laxatives, and while gentle are reliable and efficient.

ALL REPUDIATE IT Republican Leaders Disavow and Governor Refers to It Slightingly. (Special to "The Jersey City News.’’) TRENTON, Feb. 14, 1901.—Alter all that has been said to the contrary the anti spring election bill is at last before the Legislature. To say that its introduction yesterday afternoon by Mr. Meeker of Union created surprise, would be to ex- i press it mildly, for it really aroused pomething like consternation among those ; who are in earnest in their advocacy of ' :he matter. No one had any idea it was pomlng yesterday morning. The action of he Senatorial caucus on Monday night in igreelng to give the friends of the meas jre a hearing next Monday night was renerally accepted as putting the matter it rest for the time being, and no one ex pected to hear anything more of the bill intil then. ■'clock yesterday afternoon Ellis Meeker, he big, good natured member from Union lonftdentially whispered to those whom le met that he proposed to introduce the neasure. Some surprise was expressed it this, and people wondered how ne i :aroe to get the bill, asfit was understood j hat when it came in it would come from ioine Senator of influence or by Leader jewis in the House. A little questioning ioon made it plain that the people who ire here advocating the measure were as nuch surprised as any one else. They laid that they had not asked Mr. Meeker o introduce the bill and did not know hat he was going to do so. When asked vhere he got the bill Mr. Meeker said he irepared it himself and he introduced it >ecause he thought the sentiment in his !ity was strongly in favor of it. It was evident that the friends of the novement were nonplussed at the appear ince of the bill and they regarded Mr. Meeker's action more with feelings of re sentment than anything else. They were nclined to look upon the Union man’s ac ton as an unwarranted interference with heir plans, and some even went so far ts to hint that it was a scheme to kill the novement. Some color was given to this from the fact that the bill is plainly unconstitu tional in that it includes justices of the peace in the "officers'' included in the provisions of the bill and their terms are fixed by the Constitution at five years beginning May 1. It is also said to be un constitutional in that it does not apply to all municipalities. This is the text of the bill:— An Act relative to the election and ap pointment of officers in cities in this State. Be it enacted by the Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey:— 1. Hereafter in all cities in this State, all municipal officers and other officials required by law to be elected therein at any municipal or charter election, shall be voted for and elected on the first Tues day after the first Monday of November in each year, and upon the same official ballots required by law for the election of State and county officers and not otherwise; and the said ballots voted as aforesaid for such municipal officers, and other officials, shall be canvassed, and the result of any such election therefor shall be determined as now provided by law, in the case of county officers, and certified to by the clerks of such cities, it being the intention hereby to consoli date the municipal or charter election'in cities with the general or State election. 2. The term of office of any such elective officer heretofore elected In any city, and holding office therein at the passage of this act,, shall be and hereby is extended from the time when his term would other CAl»tV| UUVI1 W 11 CXI C U WlOWl, >IIVUII| of the first day of January next succeed ing the date at which his term of office would otherwise expire. 3. Every municipal officer heretofore ap pointed by the 'Mayor In any city, and holding office therein at the passage of this act, shall continue in office, and his term of office shall be and hereby is ex tended from the time when his term would otherwise expire, until twelve o’clock, noon, of the first day of Janu ary next succeeding the date at which his term of office would otherwise expire. 4. The term of office of all officers here after to be elected or appointed by the Mayor in any city, shall run from twelve o'clock, noon, on the first day of January next succeeding their election or appoint ment, for the respective term of years now fixed by law for such office. 6. The term “officers” in this act shall Include Mayors, members of Boards of Education, heads of departments, law officers, Police Justices, Tax Commis sioners, Assessors, Collectors, Treas urers. Comptrollers, Auditors and similar positions; the term "other officials” shall include constables, Justices of the Peace and other officers now required by law to be elected at charter or municipal elec tions in the respective cities. 6. All vacancies in offices in any city of this State, arising from or created by any other cause than the expiration of term of office, shall be filled for the unex pircd term only. 7. The powers, duties and authority of any municipal officer whose term of office is extended by this act, are hereby con tined in full force and effect for and dur ing the period of such extension. 8. All acts and parts of acts, special or general, inconsistent with the provisions of this act are hereby repealed. 9. This act shall take effect immediately. Leader Lewis was asked what he knew about the measure and he said “nothing;” that Mr. Meeker had Introduced it on his own responsibility and without consulting the leaders of his party. When Governor Voorhees, who also hails from Union County, ' and who is quite friendly to Meeker, was informed that the anti-spring election measure had been put in he was much surprised. He refused to discuss It further than to say that he had heard nothing whatever about it, and that he understood that It was not to be introduced, in any shape, until after the conference of the Republican Sena tors and promoters of the scheme next Monday night. Later the Governor was shown a copy of the bill, and he freely stated that should it pass both branches of the Legis lature he could not sign it, because of its many imperfections. He ’expressed the IN THE AIR. The Garni of LaGrippe Are Con vayad Through the Atmosphere. No one can escape the La Grippe germ beeuuse when an epidemic of the disease is prevailing the air is laden with it. The reason everyone does not have the disease at the same time is because the persons who are enjoying perfect health are able to successfully resist and throw oft the infection, while those, who for any reason are not in the best of health fall ready victims. The first symptoms are those of acute catarrh, resembling a hard cold and if prompt treatment is applied at this time, It can easily be broken up; one of the best remedies at this stage is Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, sold by druggists everywhere and if taken freely, say one tablet every hour or two for two or three days, the danger of pneumonia and serious complications will be averted. The Rev. L. E. Palmer, Baptist clergy man of Ceresco, Mich., makes a state ment of interest to all catarrh and grip sufferers. He says:—“Stuart’s Catarrh Tablets have certainly been a blessing to me. I have used them freely this fall and winter and have found them a safeguard against La Grippe and catarrhal troubles from which I have suffered for years. I feel that I can freely and conscientiously recommend them." Persons who suffer from catarrh of the head and throat are very susceptible to La Grippe, and such will find a pleasant, convenient and safe remedy in this new catarrh cure. Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are composed entirely of harmless antiseptics and may be used as freely as necessary as they contain no eocaine, opiate or poisonous drug of any kind. firm belief that there was no likelihood of the measure passing the Legislature as drawn by Mr. Meeker, because of the many lawyers who were members and who would discover its irregularities at a glance. As to the anti-spring election scheme it self, the Governor reaffirmed his former statement that it would be impolitic to enact such a law at this time, and that he did not believe a bill proposing the change would go through either House. Should the measure pass the Legislature he would not sign it, but might permit it to become a Jaw without his signature, if it was deemed the best thing for the party to do. There was a general expression of dis approval at the uncalled for action of Meeker among the Republicans who were at the State House yesterday afternoon. All were agreed that the bill as presented by Meeker was too badly drawn to get any consideration. It is in the hands of the House Committee on Elections, of which Assemblyman Lyon, a keen young lawyer of Middlesex county, is the chair man. Lyon is known to be personally op posed to the anti-spring election scheme and as a lawyer will naturally be up against the Meeker bill. The scheme has been a bugaboo for the State leaders of the Republican party ever since Major Carl Lentz, the boss of Essex county, evolved it several years back. Lentz is still very much interested in the scheme, but owing to his recent ap pearance in disbarment proceedings and other unpleasant dealings he has been kept very much in the back ground dur ing the present session. The Republican Senators have decided to give a hearing to Lentz and the other promoters of the deal who care to put in an appearance next Monday evening. It is generally agreed that the argu ments of the promoters will have no ef fect on the Senators, as a majority of them have already expressed themselves against the plan. The moet cheerful man over the pro ceeding was John E. McArthur, of Hud son, who sat near Mr. Meeker when the bill went in and smiled more benignly than ever. He was about the only man who could be found who declared the bill would pass and confidently stated that he had enough votes pledged in the House to put it through. Mr. McArthur is about the only friend of the measure who has not lost hope. In fact so hopeful has he always been 01 the ultimate success of the movement that he has come to be spoken of as the Mark Tapley of the Hudson Republicans. It was rumored yesterday that General Sewell would be on hand at the confer ence Monday evening but this was denied by a close friend of the Camden man. General Sewell is known to be opposed to the plan, but is desirous of remaining en tirely out of any controversy because of the nuemrous appeals that have been made to him by Colonel Sam Dickinson, who is the partner of Lentz in the deal. The Trenton Republican managers are very much Interested in the proposition to abolish spring elections. They would be very glad to have such a law enacted as it would extend the terms of many officers and would make it much less ex pensive to buy a return to office. They could pool issues on city and county elec tions, if both sets of elections were held at the same time, thus greatly reducing the cost price of a political berth in the county. YOUNS LADIES STUDY CHINA. Junior Society of Dr. Horr'e Church Entertained by Mixes Wilkinson The Young Ladies’ Missionary Society of the First Presbyterian Church held a very interesting meeting yesterday after noon at the residence of the Misses Wil kinson, Bergen avenue and Brlnkerhoff streets, with the president.

Too many cooks may spoil the broth, but they certainly have a merry time, and thus those club women fortunate enough to belong to the cooking class, under the auspices of the Home Department, which meets In Phillips Hall, Wednesday morn ings. managed to "keep the pot boiling." They all wanted to help the teacher. Miss Felitz, and showed a wonderful willing ness to work over the stove, with th9 thermometer below zero everywhere else. A fine menu had been planned and be gan with macedoine of fruit. Never was weather better suited to the preparation of this dish,' which consists of a wine jelly, turned into a mould and allowed to jelly round the edge, the centre, while still a liquid, being poured out and a layer of fruit put in. Then some of the liquid is poured over this and allowed to jeily, the same process being repeated until the hole is filled with alternate layers of jelly and fruit. Over the whole when turned out is put little whipped cream rosettes flecked with jelly. The other dishes were puree of toma toes, cabbage salad, tarts, and fricassee of oysters, all of which were thoroughly sampled before the class dispersed to meet again next Wednesday morning at half past ten, when the menu will consist of cream of celery, filet of beet, potatoes on the half shell, charlotte russe with French fruit, and Johnny cake. Yesterday's was the sixth, lesson in the course of ten, leaving but four more, and already the members are beginning to practice on the dish each will prepare for the final banquet with which they mean to close the course.
