THIS PIPER IS DE.HOCR.tTIC IN PRINCIPLE* AXD IS INDEPENDENT 1 IN ITS VIEWS ON ALL LOCAL QUESTIONS. The Meeker Bill. The Meeker law, when re-read in cold type, becomes more and more evi dently a crude and insufficient act of legislation. It leaves all the thousand and one questions which the new system develops to lie settled by the best guess of the local authorities of each city. It shows no effort to think out the conditions under which the new election will be held and no desire to provide for them. Some lawyers opine that the general statement of purpose in the first sec tion will cure many defects of the bill by its broad general applicability. This may be so; but if the process of application does not take the fall election into the courts for the settlement of a thousnnd details, we shall be much surprised. Among the subjects which we believe may cause serious trouble are the preparation of the tickets, the canvass of the vote and the payment of the ex penses. If anyone can gather from the text how these points are to be'arranged, he will do a great public service by explaining. Why It Is Bad. Mr. Woolley, as we noted yesterday, announces that the bill will speedily prove its own wisdom. Let us see: In this city, in all probability the same can didate will be elected for Mayor as if the election were field next month. Colonel Robert <5. Smith, we believe, was likely to have received the Democration nomi nation for the spring "contest; we see :io reason to think that there will be any Robert CJ. Smith, we believe, was likely to have received the Democratic nomi what light vote. In November he will get 5,000 majority on a heavy vote. The only material change is that he will appoint a complete set of municipal officers to fill accruing vacancies instead of Mayor Hoos. .Tust what Mr. Woolley sees in this to show the special wisdom of the bill, we fail to grasp. It strikes us as rather unimportant. The Demoeratie party is nominating all good candidates just now. and it is giving the city good government. Therefore it is of small importance when the elections take place. But no party is always wise or always good. Nobody can tell what conditions will exist here in ten or five or even two years, and then the evil of the bill may possibly become very apparent. It is in itself a temptation to a dominant party to go wrong, to become reckless as to its candidates and its record, and therein lie its pernicious possibilities. The conditions, which do not exist here now but which may arise actually do exist we lielieve in other cities. Newark. Paterson, New' Brunswick, Trenton, perhaps Hoboken, are likely to be greatly injured, the people being more or less deprived of control over the objectionable tendencies of some or all of their poli ticians. In Newark, the abuse is at its height. The people have elected and re-elected Mayor Seymour as their Chief Magistrate, and his will has been a most .salutary cheek on abuses in that city. Under the new law, the notorious Carl Lentz, who In his own small way is worse than Dick Croker, hopes and ex pects, and no doubt will gain undivided mastery of municipal funds, municipal patronage, municipal contracts—in a word, of everything worth grabbing in the place. The law ia had—it is unredeemably bad. It may take time to show how utterly bad it is; but the demonstration will come. Its Political Possibility. If Mayor Seymour be nominated for Governor by the Democracy, we fully expect to see the Jim Smith element in Newark trading off votes to the Republican candidate for Governor in exchange for votes for a Jimsmithite candidate for Mayor of Newark. This is the sort of vile dealing and dickering to which this wicked bill opens the way. It it* a measure for the promotion of political corruption, pure and simple. Tlie Persecution, of Sampson. The “Evening Jonriial’' yesterday stated that there never was much cordiality between Admiral Sampson and the newspaper correspondents during the campaign of 1808. This is not true to begin with; but, if it were, what has it to do with the Admiral's merits as an officer or with the merits of the controversy now before the public. ft may be that the Admiral's opposition to the promotion of any sailorman to the wardroom is narrow and extreme; but it cannot I to reasonably doubted that lte is right in ninety-nine out of a hundred eases. The opinion now on record was an endorsement on the application of one particular man. Perhaps Admiral Sampson considered the man unfit, and perhaps he is. There is no proof to the contrary except his own and his wife's opinion. We observe that cx-Secretary William C. Whitney opposes Admiral Samp son's views. I«et Mr. Whitney tell us whether he would promote his footman to be his secretary and social equal, and would seat him at his table—however bright the young man might be? AMUSEMENTS. Academy of Moale. Hoyt's “A Texas Steer" opens at the 1 Academy next week, and should meet With a rousing reception. It Is generally conceded that thie piece Is the cleverest comedy ever written by Mr. Hoyt, and Sts •theme, hinging about the trickery of Na tional politics, will lend an added interest to Its production at this time when poll revolvers in the hands of a mob of en thusiastic admirers. He accedes and takes his family to Washington, where t'heir in congruity with the fashionable atmos phere in which they find themselves, af fords the playwright splendid opportunity for plenty of that contagious humor for which he is noted—an opportunity he has most successfully taken advantage of. Lobylsts and office-seekers descend on the new member, and Hoyt empties his whole uuiver of satirical shafts at the life and customs of some of the nation’s lawmak ers. Pearl Hight, a young woman of ex ceptional beauty and talent, has been es pecially engaged for the difficult role of “Bossy,” in the piece, one of the most charming and fascinating girl parts ever conceived. The rest of the cast also 1^ very strong, including for the greater part the original splendid company that first produced the “Texas Steer.” Wilt H. Bray takes the part of the “Minister from Dahoney,” a character he created, and In wnich he is lnlmiable. Miss Lizzie Ken dall is “Mrs. Brander,” spouse of the new Congressman, while the latter part is taken by Jas. R. McCann. Gustave Nea ville plays “Majpr Yell”; Geo. T. Meeeh, “Brassy Gall, Esq.” One of the great fea tures of the performance will be the or iginal “Texas Steer Quartette,” composed of Edward L. Boas, Thomas Stubbs, Charles N. Granville and W. C. Lewis. NEW PUBLICATIONS. “Modern Cnltnro” for March. These are the contents of “Modern Cul ture” for March:— “The Social and Domestic Life of Mod ern Greece" (Ulus.), B. F.

PAN-AMERICAN EXHIBITION RATES. Erie R. R. Issues Ticket to Suit Travelers’ Varied Needs. In our advertising columns will be found the first announcement of rates to the Buffalo Exposition by the Erie Railroads. A number of different tickets are issued to cover the varied needs of the traveler, i and the prices vary accordingly. Special j arrangements can be made with the Co.’s agent at the Erie Depot for parties of 100 or more going in a body. The fair grounds and buildings have now progress ed bo far toward completion that a good idea can now be obtained of the magnifi cent end being attained. This, the first grand exposition of the new century promises to surpass all former ones. Its close proximity to Niagara Falls, places at its service unbounded electric force. More than 200,000 incandescent lamps will be used for lighting the grounds, while the grand electric tower will require four hundred miles of copper wire weighing 250 tons to string the 40,000 lights out lin ing it, in addition to the lights required for Illuminating its interior. These figures give one some idea of the scale being worked upon, but one must visit the grounds to realize the result. The Erie is making great preparations j for this business, and hope to stand fore most in their service, as they did during the great Chicago Fair of 1893. NOT AFFECTED BY STEEL TRUST. The forming of the big steel trust early this week will not affect the big steel 1 plant in West Bergen, now under the con trol of the American Crucible Company. The firms are engaged in separate anil distinct branches of industry. The local works turn out crucible material only. Wild With Eczema Fire Could Not Have Been More Painful. “ After spending two years in tak ing all kinds of medicines that were suggested for eczema, but without avail, my mother was induced to take Hood’s Sarsaparilla. The result was wonderfully gratifying. Her limbs had been terribly lacerated by the dis ease, and there were times when fire could not have been more painful. She was, in fact, almost wild. Two bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla com pletely cured her, and not a trace of eczema was left.” E. W. Decker, Gardiner, N. Y, Eat Well, Sleep Well. »< Hood’s Sarsaparilla has been a great blessing to me. I was weak, irritable, tired and nervous; had no appetite and was always sad and des pondent. One day I got hold of a little book about Hood’s Sarsaparilla. I I looked it over and resolved to try a J bottle. I was better before it was gone, so I kept on. Until I had taken , five bottles. I cun now sleep well, ! feel cheerful and can do all my work, including plain sewing, and I can walk two or three miles a day. I am 55 years old and now feel that life is worth living.” Mrs. Emma Smith, 68 J5. Mitchell St., Oswego, N. Y. Critical Period of Life. «I took Hood’s Sarsaparilla during the critical period of iny life, and now, at the age of 60 years, I am strong and healthy. It is a great medicine for the blood. I find Hood’s to be the best.” Mrs. H. Pom hot, 22 Lansing Street, Auburn, N. Y. You can buy Hood’s Sarsaparilla of any druggist. Bo euro to ask for Hood’* anil do not accept any substitute. NORRIS’S TAVERN Mrs. McCarty Tells the Dames of Arnold’s Treason. TRIAL PROCEEDINGS SECRET Interesting Details of the Famous Case—His Wife’s Letters. Miss Catharine Elmer Mills read at a meeting o£ the Morristown Chapter o£ the New Jersey Society of the Colonial Dames of America a paper by Mrs. Sarah Ellen McCurdy, the wife of Richard A. McCurdy, president of the Mutual Life Insurance Company of New York, upon a historical building still standing in this town, and known during the period of the Revolution as "Norris's Tavern." It is a curious coincidence that this an cient landmark should have passed, about twenty years ago, through the mutations of adverse fortune, in a much dilapidat ed condition into the ownership of the Mutual Life Insurance Company, by whom it was restored and put in habita ble condition. Without any knowledge of this circumstance, the wife of the presi dent of that company was requested by the State officers of the Colonial Dames at Trenton, to prepare a paper on this ' particular subject, and by this accidental I selection of topic and of writer, was en- j abled to procure a historical monograph of greajer accuracy and interest than ! probably could have been secured from ' any other source. Mrs. McCurdy's paper was as follows:— " 'Headquarters, Morristown, December 22, 177$. “The Court-martial whereof Major- 1 General Howe is president, to sit tomor row, 10 o'clock, at Norris's Tavern.’ “Under this order of Washington, Ma ipr General Benedict Arnold appeared on Thursday morning, December 23, before the court appointed for his trial. Further sessions were held at the same place at 11 in the morning each day, on December 24, and on Tuesday,Wednesday and Thurs day of the following week, adjourning on the latter day, December 30, to enable General Arnold to secure additional evi dence. The court convened again at Nor ris's Tavern three weeks later, on Wed nesday, January 19, 1780, and sat daily until the following Saturday, when the Judge Advocate, Lieutenant Colonel John Luarance, summed up the case for the prosecution. The court then adjourned until Wednesday, January 20, when it held Its final meeting at the same place, and rendered its decision. As this court-mar tial undoubtedly led to Arnold’s treason in the following September, it was prob ably the most important ever held in America, although it was' scarcely men tioned in history, and what little is said of it is usually derived from a wholly in correct account invented long afterward by M. Marbois, who has been the sec retary of the French legation at Philadel phia at the time cf the trial. "Norris's Tavern, the scene of these imposing and even brilliant gatherings of high officers in full uniform, is one of the few buildings of the colonial period which remains standing in its original position in Morristown, indeed the only one not a private dwelling. It had been formerly known as Dickerson’s Tavern. The owner was Captain Peter Dickerson, who in his later days gave it over to the management of Robert Norris. When Captain Dickerson died, in 17S0, his wid ow resumed the management. Captain Dickerson was a substantial citizen, and had established his tavern in what was then the most available locality. It stood, and still stands, on the east cor ner of the roads now known as Spring and Water streets. Another large build ing connected with the tavern, and doubt less used as a coachhouse and stables, stood on the north corner, on the op posite side of Water street. On the south corner, facing the tavern, was the large general store of Stephenson & Cantield, who dissolved partnership about the time of Arnold’s trial, Stephenson re maining and Canfield retiring to a small er store opposite, next to the tavern. The other buildings In that neighborhood were few and unimportant, although tradition says that the first Settlers of Morristown established themselves in that quarter, close to the river. This may have been the case, but few, it any, traces of that first settlement remained at the time of the Revolution. The village itself was on the high ground around the green, with a number of good houses extended along what is now Morris street, toward the headquarters. “That thk? tavern was the most import- | ant is indicated by the fact that there are ' several maps still existing prepared for the use of the army, on which the only building to which a name was attached was ‘Norris's Tavern.’ The location would now be considered extremely unsuitable either for a tavern or for a store. During the Colonial period, on the other hand, it I was the best location to be found. Any | farmer or traveller coming from the West or North and desiring either to stop at Moristdwn or pass it on the road to Chat ham -and the east, was compelled to pass Dickerson's Tavern. At that time there was no road from Morlstown to Mendham or any other point west or north except by going down Water street and up Spring street to what is now Speedwell avenue, beyond the bridge, which did not then exist. There was no road to Mend ham along what is now Washington ave nue, but travellers from that neighbor hooh had to follow the old road along Early street and down Spring street to Dickerson's tavern, before mounting the hill to the green. “Robert Norris, the landlord, had ob viously a mind of his own, for in June 1777, he had been accused of Toryism aad had been called before the Governor and council to take the oath required in such cases, and in September, 17W, he had been advertised as guilty of charging prices higher than those which had been pre viously fixed by a public meeting of hie neighbors. ‘‘General Arnold was tried on several charges, ail rather trivial, and only two of them considered by the court to have been in any degree well founded. One of these was that he authorized a vessel to enter an American port which belonged to persons living In Philadelphia, when it was In the possession of the British, and therefore of doubtful loyalty to the American cause. The other was that he sent public wagons to remove property it. which he had an Interest, and which was In. Imminent danger from the enemy, and as to this the court found ‘that General Arnold intended this application as a prl j vate request, and that he had no design | of employing the wagons otherwise than at his private expense, nor of defrauding the public, ncr injuring or impeding the public service. The fact seems to bo that Arnold had enemies In high position who persecuted him almost without cause. He had been In command at Philadelphia af ter tho British had left the city, and had given great offense to zealous patriots by his conciliatory tone toward those who had endeavored to remain neutral, and in some cases toward known tories. He hud married Margaret Shlppen, whoso friends and connections were chiefly tories, and of whom Andre, the gallant British officer, had made a handsome sketch, which i3 “He appears to have made somt efforts still preserver by the Shlppen family, to make money privately, and not to have been entirely punctilious in ’his methods. When charges began to be made, he treated the civil authorities of Pennsyl vania so cavalierly that they became his bitter enemies and demanded his trial by court-martial. Such wrangling while the war was going on, without due cause, was wicked, as well as stupid. After the trial was over, and Arnold 'had been sentenced to he reprimanded, the prosecutors them selves made an official request as fol lows:—‘We find his sufferings for, and ser vles to, his country, so deeply impressed on our minds as to obliterate every oppos ing sentiment, and therefore beg leave to request that Congress will be pleased to dispense wl.th that part of the sentence which imposes a public censure, and may most affect the feelings of a brave and gallant officer. . . . We hope General Arnold's merits and services will be re membered when all objections to his con duct are long forgotten.’ If only they had thought of this a year earlier! “The proceedings of the trial were kept secret, though made public afterward in a document now very rare. Particular in terest was manifested at headquarters and throughout tho camp near Morris town. Rumors were circulated, some true and some false. For instance, on the last day of the session, when the closing ad dress was made for the prosecution, an officer wrote from the camp of Stark’s brigade that Arnold had made a spirited defence, and added: ‘It is expected lie will be acquitted with honors. General Reed attended the trial, and made a very elegant sne«h to the court. In fact, Gen eral Reed, the President of Pennsylvania and chief prosecutor, said nothing to the court. His name appears in the proceed ings only in the copies of documents sub mitted. At one time in the proceedings Arnold was rendered anxious by the ab sence of a witness, Colonel Mitchell. He asked and obtained an adjournment until he could secure further evidence. Colonel Alexander Hamilton has just testified, and so far as it went his evidence was en tirely in Arnold's favor. At this juncture his wife wrote to Arnold an affectionate letter, from which the following extracts are enough to car ry our sympathies entirely to the side of the future traitor: ‘I cannot but wish you had been more particular in letting me know how your trial goes. You say so little about it that I am apprehensive things do not go as well as you expect, and you are afraid of alarming me by letting me know it. J am extremely sorry to find that Colonel Mitchell’s evi dence is essential. I do not believe he will go to camp if he can possibly avoid it. You say you expect him this day (January 4). I have just sent to know when he goes. He sent me word that he did not know when he should go. I be lieve you may wait a considerable time before you see him; indeed, it is my opin ion he will not go at all. I enclose a monstrous long letter I wrote before the receipt of your last. * * * I believe X shall go today to the cottage to spend a day or two, but it shall not deprive me of the pleasure> of writing to you. I never wanted to see you half so iriuch. You mention Sunday for your return. I shall not flatter myself I shall see you even then, if you wait for Colonel Mitch ell. * * * Farewell, I need not say how affectionately I am yours.' "Arnold had, in fact, to return to Phila delphia, in order to get his witness, and this explains the delay before the reas sembling of the court. He was subse quently reprimanded by Washington in delicate terms.’’ Nasal CATARRH In ail its stages there should be cleanliness. 1 Ely’* Cream Balm cleanses, soothes and heals the diseased membrane.
