VISIT TOJAHWAY Governor and Legislative Committee See the New Reformatory Buildings. MORE APPROPRIATIONS NEEDED Excellent Arrangement of the Institution—Its Purposes and Prospects. Governor Foster M. Voorhees occupied a ceil in New Jersey State Reformatory yesterday afternoon. When he was re leased after “doing time” for a few minutes, Senator Joseph Cross of Union, Assemblyman Ellias R. Meeker of Union, Senator Theodore Strong of Middlesex, and Assemblyman Oliver L Blackwell of Hunterdon, and Rev. George C. Maddock, chaplain, of the Trenton State Prison, were thrust in and the door locked. “Governor, I think you had better call a meeting of the Board of Pardons,” said Commissioner George Squire, “to get these fellows out.” “I know that gang, replied the Gover nor, laughing, “and I think they need re forming.” These pleasantries took place on the occasion of an informal inspection of the new buildings at Rahway, arranged by the Commission of that institution, for the purpose of convincing the Governor and the Legislative Committee on Appro priations that the money given for the buildings had been well spent, and would they please appropriate right awray a little more. To receive the Governor were these Commissioners of the Reformatory: David M. Chambers, president; Patrick Farrelly, I. W. Ferguson, Ross Vanderhoven, Thomas M. Gopsill and George A. Squire, and all the population of Rahway, head ed by the Mayor, Chief of Police and Chief of the Fire Department, Architect J. P. Thomas, Consulting Engineer James M. Seymour, Jr., Rev. L. C. Cooder of Rahway, Warden S. S. Moore of Trenton Prison, Captain J. W. Martin, H. B. Rol linson, W. T. Weber, H. Simmons, John Willis, Charles A Seaman, Judge Vail, Judge Charles D. I.ambert, H. S. Barnes, secretary of the Rahway Board of Trade; Albert C. Cryer, Dr. H. P. Hough, John Gunn, Edward Heaton, electrical con tractor; George Tobin, J. C. Clirhugh of New York, J. Lewis Brown, A N. Bayley, H. H. Moore, Dr. Selover, D. Henry, and many others. The Governor and party were first con ducted to the power house, where the two engines were turned on and a lengthy ex planation was given as to power, usages of steam, and so forth, by Engineer Sey mour, who said:— .. “The plant is very economical in every respect First there is a battery of three boilers, and the plans are made for an addition of five more whenever the build ing requires it. The steam is generated in these boilers and goes to the electric light engines, driving them to produce the electric light and power for the en tire building, Including the laundry, and to provide ventilation. The steam before it leaves the engine is exhausted into a twelve inch steam main, running through the tunnel to the dome, w'here pipes branch from it to the indirect radiators under the cell house. The air is taken in by means of large fans at the end of the cell house and passed through radia tors that are heated with this exhaust •team. After passing through these radiators, which are only for tempering the air, it passes into long ducts, and then through secondary heaters placed at the bottom of each flue. The air rises through the flues, accelerated by the pressure pro duced by the fan, and enters the cell house and dome. It is so arranged that by raising or lowering a lever the tem perature of the air entering the cell" house can be altered^ to suit the requirements •without reducing the volume of air that is pait into the building.” The air, after entering the cell house, passes into the cells through grated doors. In the back of each cell, about a foot from the top, is a square opening, four inches square, of cast-iron, built in the wall. There is also an opening two inches by three inches leading from the local vent in each closet. The air current through the closets is strong enough to blow o a match if lighted and held in the opening, and the current in the venti lating flue at the top of the cells is equal ly strong. These flues are connected with the galvanized-iron duct which runs down through the central or utility corridor into a closed space beneath the cells. At the end of this space is placed another fan, driven by an electric motor, which;' exhausts the aif" from each cell anl throtvs it over the building. By this a/ rangement it will be impossible for epy contagion to be transmitted from one fell to another, as the air goes in the doors of all the cells, and, once in, carj/ not An Old and Well Tried Remain Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup for Children teething should always hi used fori children while teething. It s 'ten. the gums, allays th« pain, cores wind colic and Is the b/4t remedy for diarrhoea. Twenty-:i-• -.cut. jkr b-;U». oome back, asi t passes out at the back of the cells and Is thrown away over the roof of the building. Before a visit was made to the Admin istration building the Commissioners en tertained the party to luncheon, and at its dose Commissioner Farrell, mounting a chair, harangued the guests. He told the Governor what had been done, and gave a sketch of the history of the institution, and urged more appropriation, so that an other wing could be built. President Chambers followed, welcoming the visitors, and when another appeal for addional funds was made by Rev. George C. Haddock, there was a loud call for the Governor, who poked a littel fun at the contractors, and then said that being on the eve of a Gubernatorial election the party in power was loathe to increase ap propriations. (Laughter>. “It’s a condition that confronts us,” the Governor continued, “what we want to see here is something done. We don’t want to be always getting ready. I don’t want to censure the Commissioners, for I « know they have given much time and ex perience to this work, and it is to their credit that when it is at last finished it will stand as a monument to their fidelity and an 'honor to the State. (Cheers.) I have no apologies to make for this Re formatory, because it is one of my pet schemes. Few really understand what this institution means. There are more men outside of the prison walls who ought to be inside than those confined. It is only those who 'have been discovered that are compelled to face the punishment.” The Governor then talked of the efforts to reform young men who had made a slip in life, but -who were not criminals at heart The institution was not de signed, however, as a place to which some could send flowers, fruits and jel lies. The inmates would be taught obedi ence and assisted to work out their own release. When these men were consid ered in the light of producing citizens the public had a balance to its credit for the money spent in their reform. Coming to the subject dear to the Commissione'rs’ hearts, the Governor said:— ‘‘I don’t shape appropriations, but I do say this that the Legislative Committee on Appropriations wants to see this in stitution started—(applause)—and I be lieve with an appropriation for main tenance and inmates here there will be an increased sentiment in its favor, not because of its needs, but the public senti ment enlightened and aroused, will de mand an increase. You all know the Committee j on Appropriations. (Laughter.) They i are willing to help you for they know j that every dollar given to you is well j spent an£ there is no extravagance.” J (Cheers.) Senator' Cross, of the Appropriation i Committee, advised the Commissioners to j be modest in their demands this winter, j for the reason he added that he who asked for much got little and he who asked for .little got much—sometimes. “Oh, no, Senator!” interrupted the Rev. G. C. Haddock. “Ask largely that your joy may be full,” (Laughter.) Short speeches were made by Senator Theodore Strong, Assemblyman Ellis R. Meeker (he pf the Anti-Spring Election bill fame), Assemblyman Blackwell, the lone Democratic member of the Appro priation Committee; Judge B. A. Vail, the Rev. L. C. Cooder and the Rev. Dr. J. A. Leggett, all of whom threw “bo kays” at the Commissioner and the in stitution. Then the party sallied forth to visit the main, circular building, sur rounded by a dome. From this building W'ill radiate the four wings, one of which is completed. u On entering the visitor nnds himself penned in on all sides by iron bars, which certainly make a cage there. A clear view from this circular enclosure may be had of all the floors and corridors. There are 256 cells in the pavilion, and in this regard the institution is the peer of any in the country, and in some respects is unique. Every modern appliance for cleanliness, sanitation and ventilation has been used, and the result is a prison which may be truly said to be a model of its kind. The sanitary arrangements are com plete. Each cell is supplied with water, which may be secured by pressing a knob inserted in the wall. When the prisoner lets go of the knob the water is auto matically shut off. There is also a six teen-candle power incandescent electric light in each cell. The fuse for the light I is on the outside of the cell, in the utility ' corridor, so that it a meddlesome prisoner should short-circuit the lamp socket, he woold only put out his own light, and wduld not interfere with the man in the next cell. T ■' The plumbing is so arranged that there is a valve near the floor, in the utility '/corridor, for each cell, and should a pris ' oner waste water or in any way injure the valve, over which he has very little control, the water can be shut off without going near the cell. Described by Engineer Seymour and Mr. Heaton, the electrical contractor, there 1,600 arc lights in the building and more than 200 switchboards, control | ling every conceivable line, so that the lighting of the institution will be entirely under the control of the guardroom, where at any time the warden on duty can light up or extinguish all the lamps | in the building without leaving the mez zanine floor. "This mezzanine floor is one of the sev eral novelties contained in, the construc tion and fills nearly all the space be neath the great dome. Itl s supported on steel columns, but is not connected with the side walls, it being more like a large circular platform. It Is connected with the cell house by a single iron bridge leading to the four tiers of cells and will b<? used as an assembly room. It is large enough to conveniently hold all the pris oners contained in one cell house, and will probably be utilized for devotional services. At the western side there will be an elevated platform. iAght is provided by hundreds of elec tric lamps surrounding the dome where the arch begins, and also at the summit, where a handsome, stained glass widow, twenty feet in diameter, lets in a flood of light during the day. The floor is of concrete, as they all are in the holding; in fact, the dome and cellhouse are as nearly fireproof as it is possible to con struct them. Every known precaution has been taken to obviate the chance of a prisoner’s escape. Each cell has a double Yale lock, with a bolt three inches wide and an inch thick of tempered steel. By an interlock ing system every cell door on a tier may be closed or opened by one keeper. The cell doors are of steel bars an inch thick, but wide enough to permit a clear view of the entire cell. The walls and ceiling are of brick and the floor cement. Ever''' cell faces a window, through which the prisoner may have a clear view of the outside world. In all its arrangements the building has a care for the unfortlunates who will seme day ocupy it, and evercy comfort possible has been provided that is consistent with safety. Governor Voorhees and the Legislative gentlemen expressed their satisfaction with tile work done and the building in toto. Much remains to be accomplished. Three wings are necessary and for these and maintenance a large appropriation is needed. Again the Governor emphasized the desire to sell the building in use, and when that was done there would be no c ifficulty in unloosening the purse-strings of the State. WIFE SUPPORTS FAMILY. And Husband Indulges in Insinua tions. Peter Farrell, a laborer, thirty-two years old, o£ No. 178 Eleventh street, was charged before Police Justice Hoos of the First Criminal Court, with non-support. Mrs. Farrell and her two children, bright youngsters, four and six years old re spectively, stood arrayed against the prisoner. Mrs. Farrell told a sad story of neglect. She said she was compelled to go out and work daily for her own and her children’s support, while her husband spent his time in idleness, drinking when he could and eating whatever she brought in for the table. She drew Justice Hoos's attention to a disposses notice she had received yesterday from her landlord. “In the past seven months,” said Mrs. Farrell, “he has paid but one month’s rent. He repeatedly defied me to cause his arrest, saying that he would defy the court, and that anyhow he would be more willing to go to jail than to live with me.” “Perhaps she wants me to go to jail so that she can be rid of me,” remarked Farrell. “No, Peter,” replied Mrs. Farrell, "I thought too much of you, you cur.” She burst into tears. Justice Hoos paroled Farrell in his wife’s custody on his promise to do what ever he could toward her support. TEN CENTS A YEAR Mrs. Gardner Says That’s the Sum Her Lord and Master Allowed Her Abraham Gardner, thirty-three years old, of No. 199 Eighth street, was arrest ed this morning on complaint of his wife, Willineta, charged with assault and bat tery. He was fined $5 by Police Justice Hoos in the First Criminal Court. Mrs. Gardner said that on Friday morning about two o'clock, while she and her seven-year-old daughter were asleep in bed, her husband assaulted her with his fists and some Instrument. One of her eyes was very much discolored this morn ing. After the case of assault and battery had been disposed of Mrs. Gardner an nounced her intention of. complaining to the Poormaster because her husband had failed to support her. She says that he has given her but. ten cents in a year. Gardner is a son of C. E. Gardner, for merly a grocery merchant of the Second ward, who is a well known resident of the Vity. -.

At yesterday afternoon’s session of the State Board of Taxation the North Hud son County Railway Company appealed from the assessment of 1900 of $30,000 on its right of way of 5,243 feet leading from the hotel built by the late Simon Kelly, in Weehawken township, to the West Shore ferry. The land assessed consists of an irregular strip, 22 and 23 feet in width, and the company maintains there on a double track trolley railroad. The North Hudson County Railway Company leases this right of way from West Shore and Ontario Terminal Com pany. It claims that as lessees it should not be assessed for the property. Lawyer" Henry Nntzhorn represented the North Hudson County Railway Company. He was opposed by Lawyer Walter McDermott. The State Board took no definite action in the matter yesterday. Counsel for the North Hudson County Railway Company was notified to inform the West Shore and Ontario Terminal Company that it had ap plied for a shifting of the assessment. The Board will fix a date at which representa tives of both companies will a ppear and the Board will then decide how much each com pany shall be assessed. The North Hudson County Railway Com pany also appealed from assessment of 1900 on railway tracks, poles, wires, etc., of $28, 000 and asked that it be reduced to $12,000. In this case counsel for the North Hudson County Railway Company, after argument, admitted $22,000 to be a fair assessment. Ex-Judge Thomas F. Noonan, on behalf of Gilbert Jones, asked for a reduction from $3,000 to $1,000 on the assessment oh house and lot in West Forty-fifth street, between Avenues C and D It was claimed that the : house was far from being completed at the time the assessment w*as levied and that it had been assessed for its full value. The appeal was granted. Maggie A. Gilbert secured a reduction of $400 on the assessment for a house and lot in Bayonne. It was assessed at $1,700 and she asked a reduction to $1,000. The estate of William Curry asked for a reduction of the assessment of $2,000 on a plot of grouud in Bayonne to $500. The Board reduced the assessment to $000. MR. ROUTH’S MISTAKE Took Wrong Medicine But Discover ed It In Time to Save His Life. Mr. Oswald Routh, of Linden avenue, came very near to quitting this world yes terday morning through taking the wrong medicine. He has been troubled witii eyeritis for some time and he had an eye wash of atropine, and also has to take a dcse of iodide of potassium everv morning. He asked his wife to drop some of the atropine in his eye yesterday morn ing, which she did. As he usually keeps both medicines in a tin cup he replaced the bottle containing the atropine and went into the kitchen to get a glass of water to take the potassium in. By mistake he took a dose of atropine, I but luckily discovered his mistake as soon as he got the stuff down. He rushed over to Lyons & Zeigler’s diug store on Dan forln and Cator avenues at once and they started to work on him, at the same time sending for Hr. Lambert. A strong emetic was administered, and after about three hours' work he was declared out of dan ger. His friends were congratulating h&n ' last night on his lucky escape. He said he thought he would be more careful in the future. The dose he took was large enough to kill sceveral men and the only thing that saved his life -was the prompt relief. NEW DISPENSARY A SUCCESS German Association Pleased at Its Support. The regular monthly meeting of the German Hospital and Dispensary Asso ciation was held last night at the dispen sary, at No. 122 Danforth avenue. Sixteen new members of the association were elected and donations were received from the Arbieter Sterbe, Kranken Kasse, Branch No. 5 and C Heidt & Son. Over $100 in all was received. Since the dispensary has been estab lished over two hundred patients have been treated and the association is very much gratified with the manner in which the public has patronized it. Cards de scribing the work will be issued and dis tributed in every factory and large busi ness house in Hudson county letting the employes know where their physical ail ments may be treated at very small ex pense. __ THE DAVIS POOL TOURNAMENT.

KALISGH WILL BRING SUIT _ I He Hopes to Have an Adjudi cation Before April. An attack on the anti-spring election bill, vi^iich has been approved by Gover nor Voorhees, is to be made in the courts of the State by Samuel Kalisch, the em inent Newark lawyer. Mr. Kalisch has j been retained by a number of Newark citizens and will question the constitu tionality of the measure before the Su preme Court. The February term of the Supreme Court came to an end yesterday, but it is likely that an effort will be made to have a branch of the court hear the case with in the next few weeks. The members of the court will be in attendance upon the ■Court of Errors and Appeals, but an ar rangement can undoubtedly be mads to have such an important question as the constitutionality of t'he electiou measure considered at once. It is the purpose of ’Mr. Kalisch to have an adjudication of the matter before the time for holding the municipal elections in April, if it is at all possible. He will proceed with all possible expedition in preparing his case. Should the scheme be knocked out by the courts the blow will be a disastrous one to the local Re publican politicians, who have been felici tating themselves on the fact that their terms of office were extended until the fall, when they hoped to win out by los ing the municipal contest in the greater battle for State supremacy. As told in the “Mews” yesterday. Governor Voorhees affixed his sig nature to the Anti-Spring Election measure after a protracted conference with Attorney General Grey, at which the features of the bill were carefully studied. As the Executive gave his ap proval to the bill it is to be assumed that he and the Attorney General were satis fied that it would withstand any attacks leveled against it. Governor Voorhees does not like the stories that are so persistently floating about to the effect that the signing of the bill was the result of an agreement to put through a plan he has for the Con gressional redistricting of the State. “Mow don’t talk about bargains or dick ers of any kind,” he asserted yesterday, “for there was no intimation of any such thing so far as I know. The bill stood on its merits. I will say, however, that while I question the political wisdom of passing such a law at this time, the fact that my own party was practically unani mously for it in the Legislature placed me in the position of putting myself up as knowing more than my party or sign ing the measure.” Aside from the doubt raised by the de cision to attack the act, the passage of the bill has already caused confusion in various municipalities and more inconsis tencies and peculiar situations may be looked for before the new order of things shall have commended itself to officials and voters. In Camden the Democrats propose go- j mg ahead with their charter election preliminaries, just as though the bill had never been passed by an obliging legisla ture and signed by the Governor, Chairman Donges of the Camden Democratic City Committee stated yester day that the Democratic nominations would be filed with City Clerk Kramer and in the event of the clerk not receiving thme would be left there in the presence of witnesses. In the meantime prepara tions are going on for the election. If the Qity Clerk refuses to issue tickets leg al proceedings will be taken. The Repub lican Committee, which meet Thursday, ! is equally determined to hold no election. ! The City Clerk is expected to act accord ing to the Republican stand, unless the court intervenes and sets aside tile law. Bridgeton also has a complication to unravel, as in that place Councilman-at Large Charles H. Stevenson was legislat ed out of office to take effect late this month. Now the question arises whether i the Meeker bill will affect him. If it does 1 he will serve until next January, but if <t does not Mr. Stevenson will go out of office and the Council will have no power to select another permanent president un til January 1. In Woodbury even the Republicans are not taking chances, but are going ahead with their preparations for a spring elec tion, so as to be ready in the event of there being a hitch in the law. Nomina tions have already been made for mayor, councilman, freeholder, assessors and overseer of the poor and the Republicans will await developments before taking further steps. WILL GIVE PROGRESSIVE EUCHRE Mrs. A. Kechler and Mrs. William Cos grove will give a progressive euchre party next Monday night at the New York Bay House.

Sylvester Went Into the Bus iness on a Wholesale Scale. - i Sylvester Halpin, of No. 53 Sussex street, last night appeared in the role of “Jack, 1 the Hugger.” He is now a prisoner in default of $5 fine imposed by Police Jus tice H009 in the First Criminal Court this morning. Halpin took up a position on Grove street, near Sixth street, at 7 o’clock last evening, behind a tree. He flitted from, tree to doorway, waiting for young wom j en to pass.’ He hugged several. Each i victim screamed, and in a few minutes | there was considerable excitement In that | neighlf, rhood. | Then Halpin took up a position a few ; blocks further up the street. Patrolman j Brumell.'of the Second precinct police sta | tion, was told of Halpin's antics, and he went on a still hunt for Halpin. He came upon the hugger as he had two. young ladies in his grasp. He was hugging and kissing them one after another, and seem ed to enjoy it more than the young ladies, who were too frightened to help them selvea Brumell placed the man under ar rest, and took him to the station. He was sober this morning, when he regretted his actions. CUT GLASS AND HIS NECK. President Decker, of the Decker Repub lican Club of the Eighth Ward, denies generally all the stories regarding the joining of the Decker Association with the machine clubs of the ward. “You may state,” said he, “that such a question has never been considered. And furthermore, it Would be useless to dis cuss the matter because of the improba bility of arriving at such a solution of diffi culties in the Eighth Ward.” What led to the rumors of amalgamation were the two secret conferences held recent ly between Chairman Edward Fry, of the Executive Committee of the County Com mittee; President John H. Weastell, of the Wanser Club, aud Mr. Decker. No conclu sions have yet been reached. Various mat ters have been talked over, aud concessions have been offered to the Deckerit^ if they will promise to get into the political harness with the regulars. These conferences are considered in the light of a big victory for the anti-ring men. The importance of the anti-ring men in the politics of the county has been realized at last. For this reason the leaders think it wise to see these independents with a view to a reconciliation. The leaders have been forced to take these steps, and “all harmony bluffs have been called.” The Deckerites took up the harmony ques tion severrl weeks’ ago, and demanded that the leaders come out and show their hand. “If you want harmony,” said a resolution passed by the Deckers, “prove it by putting Mr. Decker on your Executive Committee.” This resolution had the desired effect. Chair man Woolley got it in due time, and a con ference with the leaders was held. And this is where th * Deckers scored their victory. Mr. Decker is to go on the star committee, which will be announced at the meeting next week. The Deckers are to get even more representation. Some of the members are to be put on other committees to be ap pointed at the next session. These are not all the concessions that the Deckers are to receive. That very trouble some question regarding the status of Messrs. Trenery and Lauer, the two Weastell men, who were represented as being holdovers at the primary held to elect committeemen on December 6 last, has been settled. The Deck er men won out again. The leaders have agreed to drop the matter, giving the two committeemen to the Deckerites. This case was referred to the committee of appeals, but it never saw the committee aDd never will. What the Deckerites are to do in re turn for all this grei-t kindness is a mystery to Mr. Decker, that gentleman claims. He says he does not know unless it is to pro mote harmony, and the Deckers “were al ways out for the good ot the party.” De velopements are anxiously awaited. Nothing definite is looked for until the County Com mittee meets. Would Be Thief Got Nothing But Pains. While Patrolman Britten, of the First precinct police station, was patrolling Montgomery street, below Warren, this morning at three o'clock, he heard a call whistle and started for it. He saw a man rushing from the doorway of No. 40 Mont gomery street, which is occupied by Henry Goldberg as a tailor shop. The policeman gave chase. The man ran sev : eral blocks in a zig-zag course and turned j on his own tracks until he was again in j Montgomery street He rushed into the j restaurant at No. 3G and sat at a table, trying hard to appear an unconcerned and innocent customer. Britten entered the restaurant and placed the man under arrest The man gave his name as John Hanley and his address as No. 44 Jersey street, New York" city. | The man had cut a large piece of glass out of the door of Goldberg's door and was about to cilmb in when he was frightened off. In extricating himself he cut his neck. The man was brought to Police Headquarters and this morning he was held to await further examination. It is thought he is an old offender. FORESTERS HAVE MONEY _ The Foresters' Festival Association held a meeting last night and settled up the proceeds of the ball which was re cently given by them. It was found that a clean profit of $157.85 had been made. This sum will be put in the bank and used to defray the expenses of the an nual picnic, which will be given some time in the coming summer. A banquet will be given some time in April. The association is making arrangements for it now. The committee elected to look after it is composed of:—J. Murray, W. LaUbenheimer, T. McFaddert, W. Cos grove, W. Kuiiz and T. K. Moran. WEATHER INDICATIONS MR. SCHWARZ LEAVES ST. J(F7S Accepts Position of Organist at First "Prosbvterian Church. Organist Moritz E. Schwarz, of St. John's Episcopal Church on Summit avenue, re signed a few days ago, the resignation to take effect on May 1. He will take the place of the late Dr. James Pierce, who was organist at the First Presbyterian Church on Emory street. Dr Pierce died almost a year of apoplexy. Mr. Schwarz has been ten years at St. John’s Church. His successor has not been chosen. Mr. Schwarz’s salary in the new position will be"larger than that he receives at St. John's Church. ! NEW YORK.

City Epworth League Will Appeal to Chief Murphy to Help Them. The Jersey City Epworth Uniotv has plans for the closing of all the saloons in Hudson county on Sunday. It declares it self against alleged violations of the Sun day liquor law and It will appeal to the authorities for assistance in furthering its ends. Some work has been done In this line, but with doubtful success. The gen eral plan of campaign is in the hands of the Good Citizenship Committee of the Union. This committee is presided over by George H. Lincks. It represents sev enteen Methodist churches and has assist ance from every chapter affiliated with the numerous churches. Committees were appointed to canvass each precinct, gather evidence, present it to the police and ask them to act. Complaints will be lodged with the police at the head of each precinct if necessary. Committees have been at work in the Oakland and Communipaw avenue stations and the members claim that their efforts have been fruitful. A meeting of the Citizenship Committee was held last night at No. Id Cottage strest. It was decided to go into the work with more vigor and to strike high. An appeal will be made to Chief Murphy to close up all saloons on Sunday. How soon i they will descend upon the Chief was not announced. The Epworth Union will revive the agU tation for a jury commission and start it agoing again throughout the State. They claim that if the power to drive juries is I taken from the Sheriff and placed in the hands of a bi-partisan commission. Juries ! will be selected who will investigate th» Sunday saloon question and bring all offenders to account for their violation ef i the law. Success is looked for in this new movement. President Lincks said that the movement was successful as far as it j had gone. t 1 i You should not feel tired all the time— ■ healthy people don't—you won’t if you take Hood’s Sarsaparilla for a while. . i DIED.
