It ie rumored that If the Court of Errors and Appeals would knock out the Meeker Act, the Legislature will be kept in session another week to pass a sub stitute measure so framed that it will hold water. The theory is advanced that, the town elections being over throughout the State, the Republican Senators and Assemblymen will vote for a bill covering all local contests in the expectation that some means can be found, early in the next session, to reinstate the spring elec tions for the small rural constituencies before the usual time for holding them arrives. It would be superfluous to comment on the morality of this course. The only thing worth appraising is its probability. This we do not regard as very great. The Senators and Assemblymen are tak ing care of their own seats before every thing else, and so much hostility would be developed that it is doubtful if any man voting fur a bill to abolish them could ever again be elected to any office. There Is a point beyond which even Re publican recklessness will not go. and we believe this point will be reached when the highest court in the Slate papses on their present bill. The judgment rendered ■will be final, for this year at least. Plank Road Arrests. The arrest of the 'Plank Road men on Federal warrants, accusing them of ob structing navigation, appears to be an act of pure maiice on the part of the defeated Newark grabbers. The alleged obstruc tion Is a mere temporary piling In the mud, which was driven ns an aid In swinging the new draws which were to have been put in. if the Courts had not deprived the Plank Road Company of its franchise. It causes no danger or incon venience to vessels, and while it might not be warranted as a permanent thing, It is reasonable and proper as an Inci dent of the work that was te have been done. Even It the arrests made are warranted on technical grounds, they are grossly unjust and oppressive from the moral point of view. The Newark Board of Trade endorsed them by resolution on Saturday evening, but that makes them no more reputable. On the contrary, it heightens the contempt in which the Board itself is held for its course in this entire matter. . The resolutions say that the arrests are intended to convince the Plank Road Company that the Newark business men are determined to insist on their rights. Of course thie reads nicely; but what it really means is thut the Newarkers are determined to make somebody else—the Plank Road Company or the Hudson tax payer*—pay for their acommodatlons. Title is the simple meaning of the whole Newark suit. Oar Robber Tariff. The story of American aggression on the English markets for iron and steel is an old one; but today we have another beautiful tariff lesson in connection with the highly protected manufacture of Shoes. A week from next Saturday, a gorgeous American shoe store will be opened In Berlin by Mr. Julius Barthman of New ark, N. J. In rapid succession fifteen others will be opened in all the large cities of Germany and Austria, and short ly Mr, Barthman hopes to have the larg est trade in the German speaking world In all kinds of footwear. Nothing but American goods are to be sold in these stores. Mr. Barthman is going to pay the freight on his goods to Europe, and in Europe to the selling points. lie is going to pay the quite heavy duty on their Importation Into Germany and Austria. He is going to pay all the expenses of the new stores, including the heavy cost of advertising a new business. And still he expects to make money—lots of it. And yet how Mr. Barthman would squeal If it were proposed to take the duty off shoes imported into this country. Me would protest that he would have to go out of business—one can easily guess how truthfully. Is It not absurd that the American peo ple are being taxed to the very uppers, in order to give Germany and Austria cheap shoes? _ AMUSEMENTS. Academy of Music. “The Voice of Nature,’ by Mr. Theo Jore Kremer, will be the bil used by Mr. Phomas E. Shea, to open his week’s en gagement at the Academy tonight. It Is a very strong dramatic melodrama of Russian life. The following repertoire will be presented:—Monday and Friday evenings, "The Voice of Nature." Tues day, Thursday and Saturday evenings, “Dr. Jekyl! and Mr. Hyde.” Wednesday evening, "The Bells, or the Murder of the Polish Jew," Sir Henry Irving's great success. Saturday matinee, "Man-o’ War's-Man." Broadway Theatre, New York. Manager Jacob LIR has Thrown a bombshell into the ranks of Broadway theatrical managers by announcing that the price of seats at the Broadway Thea tre, New Tork, for the engagement of the big Drury Lar.e melodrama, "The Price of Peace," which goes on for a run Thursday evening, March 21, will. range from twenty-five cents to one dollar, with a few rows in the front of the theatre at one dollar and a half. This scale of prices will apply for the Saturday matinees as well as evening performances. On Wed nesday afternoons the prices will be twenty-five, fifty and seventy-five cents— no higher. This Is the most radical cut that has been made since the establish ment of the two dollar rate some years ago, and it Is especially noteworthy from the fact that "The Price of Peace” Is by long odds the biggest melodramatic production that has ever been brought to this country. The company has been re hearsing day and night under the direc tion of Marshall Moore, the stage man ager of the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London, who came to America to super vise the American production of the piece. Mr. LiR is said to have used exceptional care in engaging the company for the play, and the cast includes a number of well known and popular players. There are forty-one speaking parts, and besides these there are a great number of extra people used. In the big scenes of the play there w-ill be 250 people on the stage. The production in its entirety has been brought over from London and the play will be presented at the Broadway Thea tre exactly as it was done at the Drury Lane, the great melodramatic theatre of London. There will be fourteen massive scenes shown, requiring an army of stage hands to handle the scenery and work the show. The principal players in the cast will be Wilton Lackaye, Arthur Forrest, Minnie Sellgman, May Buckley, Anne Sutherland, Marion Elmore, W. T. Carle ton, E. Harrison Hunter, Harry Roberts, Charles Cherry, Fred. Thorne, Eric Hope, Henry Bergman, Charles Kent, Mabel Taliaferro, Kate Lester and 'H. J. Holli day. NEW PUBLICATIONS.

Spring Humors It doesn’t make any difference whether you believe in the modern theory and speak of the cause of dis eases as referable to germs, microbes or bacilli, or whether you use the old er and better understood terms of “humors” and “blood diseases”— Hood’s Sarsaparilla cures them all JUST THE SAME. It cures those eruptions, boils and pimples which are so likely to appear in the Spring; cures scrofula diseases in their most tenacious forms; cures salt rheum or eczema add relieves the itching and burning; adapts itself equally well to, and also cures, dyspepsia and all stomach troubles due to generally weak condition and thin, autemic blood; cures nervous troubles, which, in nine cases out of ten, exist because the impure blood cannot supply prop er nerve food; cures debility and that tired feeling, which just as surely indicate that the blood is lacking in vitality and the elements of health. This is not merely modern theory but it is solid, up-to-date fact. Hood’s Sarsaparilla has had such remarkable success along these lines that it is not too much to say it is the best Spring Medicine, blood purifier, stomach and nerve tonic that money can buy. TRUCE CALLED. Assemblymen and Senators Will Stop Fighting in Order to Adjourn. STOKES IN A PLIOHT Slated for Chancery Clerk and Wanted in Cumber land-More Pandering to Soldiers. [Special to "The Jersey City News."] TRENTON, March 18, 1901—Although the Senate has not agreed to the Assem bly’s resolution for sine die adjourn ment on Friday next, and there were some indications of friction between the tw’o bodies late last week, It is very likely that a truce will be called tomor row night, and that the end of the Legis lature will come in peace and order. There really was no very serious differ ence between the two houses; but some Of the anxious members of the Assembly felt hurt at the way the dignified Sena tors had ignored all their efforts to push pet measures before the rush of the last hours of the session should seal their fate. It is pretty certain that the “Steering Committee” of the two Houses will be able to bring order oht of the chaos, and so arrange matters that such bills as the party managers deem expedient w’ill get through all right, but there are many measures on the cal endars which can scarcely run such a gauntlet, and they are sure to meet the ignominy of silence. There is enough fight left, however, to make some lively times for the final gasp and it will be strange if some heads are not hit. For instance, there is the contest over the State Board of Arbitration, in which the Governor read the riot act to some of the Assemblymen last week. The Gover nor is anxious to relieve the various leaders of the difficulty they have encoun tered in agreeing upon the nominees for the sinecures on this Board, and he is said to have inspired the bill which Mr. Foote, of his ow'n county, introduced for placing the body on a per diem allow ance. Friends of the body and certain prospective appointees managed to hold the bill up in committee until the Gover nor was compelled to exert all his strength to have it reported. The bill came up on second reading last Thurs day, but it encountered such hostility that even the influence of the adminis tration was insufficient to force it to pas sage, and it was laid over until tomorrow night. Mr. Waite of Camden made a vigorous speech against the bill, claiming that the Board of Arbitration had been created in the interest of the workingmen of the State, and its practical abolition at this time meant a blow at the power ful element which could not well be af fronted. So there is now every indication of a nice little fight on the floor tomor row night. Probably in nothing more than soldier bills has the present Assembly displayed its willingness to make any old kind of a law that would catch votes. Any meas ure labeled “Soldier bill has gone through the House with a hurrah, and without question, and some of them even without enough explanation to enable the mem bers to know what they were really vot ing for. One of this class of bills passed by the House without question was a proposi tion to pay $21.80 to every National Guardsman in the State who served. in the Spanish war, to recompense him for clothing purchased after he arrived m camp. So anxious were the members to gain the good will of the soldiers than two bills for the same purpose were in troduced, one by Lord of Essex and the ether by Kirkbrtde of Monmouth. The latter got his measure in first and it went through with bells on after he had made a sort of hazy explanation which gave the impression that the men had been obliged to buy a regular volunteer uniform after getting to pamp, because the suits they had bought from the State when they went away didn't correspond to the army regulations. It now turns out that the Jersey Vol unteers didn't have to spend a cent of their own money for any kind of clothes . and that the enacting of the Kirkbride bill into a law would simply be to have the State divide another gratuity of about $60,000 among the volunteers as a pure gratuity. When the guardsmen went away in 1898 they wore uniforms owned by the State. Uncle Sam, in addition to the pay of his soldiers, gives them a lib eral allowance, and these State clothes were appraised by a board of survey and the value fixed upon them deducted from this allowance. Later, some of the Jer sey regiments were compelled to secure regulation volunteer uniforms, and the cost of these, too, was deducted from the clothing allowance, the men receiving full pay, without any discount on account of the uniforms. After some delay the Government paid the State for the uni forms the men wore when they went away, and the money was invested in other uniforms for ’the reorganized Na tional Guard. When the men were finally mustered out they received, in addition to their pay, about $$ balance from their clothing allowance. After fighting for a while they concluded, however, that it they had been obliged to have only the volunteer uniforms there would have been some thing like $30 apiece coming to them, and consequently that the State owed them an average of $21.SO tor the clothes that it had given them when they went away. It Is expected that the Governor will, early in the week, send In the name of Senator Stokes as Clerk in Chancery to succeed Lewis Thompson, hut disquiet ing rumors are wafted here from the oys ter country, and there may have to be an entirely new deal. These rumors are to the effect that the Republicans of Cum berland county may be unable to find a man who, as their candidate for Senator to succeed Stokes, will be strong enough ■to defeat Charles Keighly, Vineland's philanthropic office holder, whom the Democrats arc seriously considering as their standard hearer. Some of I lie Re publican leaders of Stokes's county de clare that he is ihe only man who could beat Keighly at the polls. Hut Senator Stokes is not. at all inclined to enter the lists for Senator again. He has served three terms and feels that he Is now en titled to some rest and recognition for the services he has rendered. That was the gist of his reply to a large delegation of his home friends who made a call up on him at his hotel when the present ses sion of the Legislature opened. They had bluntly asked him to stay in the Senate, and had assured him of practically an un opposed renomination. The Senator seem ed gratified at this show of confidence and esteem, but said be bad spent tin best years of his life lb the service of the people of his county and the State at large, and that he ought.now to consider some of his obligations to himself. Those who had called upon him felt tho force and truth of the Senator’s ar gument. but it did not solve for them the vexing problem of who should succeed him, and ever since then they have been guessing, with no reasonably prospects of coming to the satisfactory end they so much desire. The injection, therefore, into the already complicated situation In Cumberland of such a factor as Mr. Keighly promises to be is not conducive to the peace om mind of the men who care for the political destinies of the county of oysters and glass. The ultimate decision of Senator Stokes, whatever that may be, is sure to have an Important bearing upon the po litical affairs of the State at large, be cause it has been al along considered that he was a very available man to take up the work of Republican State Chairmun Franklin Murphy In the event of the latter's nomination for Governor. As vice chairman of the committee In the last campaign the Senator displayed such signal ability that It became almost certain that he would be chosen to head the committee in the coming campaign. Nor has it been definitely decided that he will not, but if he shall finaly conclude to listen to the importunities of his Cum berland County friends, and 9nee more become a candidate, iti s hardly probable that he will have the desire or the time to give t the work of the State Committee. In this connection it is a part of the po litical gossip of the State House corri dors that when the time comes for the se lection of a new State chairman the Re publicans will turn their attention to for mer Sheriff David Baird, the member from Camden. Mr. Baird is one of the most popular members of the committee, and he has been at the forefront In a good many hard tights in the State in recent years, so that he Is fully equipped in a good many ways to assume the task. These two State leaders had a conference in Camden last Friday night, and. It is said, gave full discussion to the present situation of affairs; but what conclusion they reached Is known only to themselves. It may mean the choice of Baird for State fchairman, and certainly South Jersey Re publicans will be gratified by such a cnoice. One of the interesting struggles of the last week of the legislative session will be over the Ocean Boulevard bill, which hasc laimed so much attention already. At the suggestion of Governor Voorhees an amendment has been tacked to the bill as a compromise to the objections from the Ocean Grove Camp-meeting Association. This amendment provides that the proposed driveway along the coast shall be subject to the police regu lations of all the municipalities through which it may pass; that the Camp-meet ing Association may erect gates across it and keep them closed, stopping all travel on Sunday. Such ap roposition, liberal as it would appear to be, has not been acceptable to Rev. A. E. Ballard, who has violently opposed the measure; but that it will assist the passage of the bil is regarded as sure. The committee will give another hearing on the measure on Tuesday, and the Asbury Park Board of Trade has arranged to run a special train t the capital and confront the committee with a big and influential del egation in favor of the boulevard. methodisTWference. Programme is Being Ar ranged By the Members in Charge. Pians are being' made for the forty fourth annual seission of the Newark Methodist Conference, to be held at the First Methodist Church, Hoboken, from April 10 to 17, inclusive.

TO CORE A COED IN ONE D *1Y Take Laxative Brotno-Qubiiiie Tabid*. 25c -A-'^ Av.‘--j*:* v> •*-: BUNK EXCUSED Third National's Refusal to Produce Mr. Farrier’s Account Upheld By Mr. Pitney. UNWARRANTABLE INQUIRY Testimony Today in the Suit of Margarita Farrier Against Her Husband, Horace. A case of considerable importance in law practice came before Vice Chancellor Pitney in chambers this morning. Stated briefly, it was:—Can a bank be com pelled to disclose a depositor's account to prove the faculty' of a husband to sup port a wife who is suing h:m for divorce, pending which suit alimony has been agreed upon? There is a cauee before the Court of 'Mrs. Margarita Farrier against her hus band, ’Horace H. Farrier, a well known resident of this city’. Testimony on an order was taken before Mr. Clarence Linn. During that proceeding, while on the witness stand, Mr. Farrier refused to tell Mr. W. H. Speer, his wife’s counsel, what his account at the- Third National Bank was. He said he couldn’t tell with in 110,000 what his balance was, because his book had not been made up within several months. A subpoena duces tecum was served on the bank to produce its books. Mr. Farrier sent an objection to the bank, and in this situation counsel for both sides came before Vice Chan cellor Pitney to decide whether or not the bank should obey the subpoena. Counsellor J. Herbert Potts, for Mr. Farrier, explained the situation as above, and contended that the bank had no right to disclose the account. Had the dispute, he continued, been between the bank and his client, the production of the books would be proper, but where it was a dis pute with a third party, as in this suit, the bank had no right to do so when the depositor objected, until the merits of the case had been determined. To go into Mr. Farrier’s private affairs, the law yer said, was unwarrantable. Counsellor Speer said that the wife’s bill set up that her husband was ex tremely wealthy while she was poor; that he had an income of $30,0C0, which he denied. Hence the question of his estate became an issue and the production of his bank account was material. “Are you entitled to that unless you get a decree?” the Vice Chancellor in terposed. “It is not usual to make an inquiry as to means until after merits of the case have been determined. Sup pose you produce his bank book and go into every checx drawn wouldn't that be an unwarrantable inquiry into his private affairs?” Mr. Speer thought not. Under the old style of testimony it might be right, but evolution ought to strike the law as it does everything else. The issue has been made by the defendant's answer. “This man,’’ continued Mr. Speer, "is very wealthy, but has all along stinted his wife, giving her a beggariy pittance which was nothing to him. “Tour point is this,” said the Vice Chancellor, “that this as a part of the original cruelty?” The Court in giving his opinion went carefully over the main facts of the dis pute and then said the question was of considerable importance. The general practice, his honor said, was to ascertain the “faculty” of the husband to support the wife, but that was not a part of the original issue. That came in after. Some times the faculty to support the wife was disclosed in the hearing of the merits of the issue, but that only was an inci dent. Before she can compel him to dis close this she must establish her right un less pendente lite alimony was given. Here, however, alimony had been given and the inquiry was not competent. It might, however, be competent to go into Mr. Farrier’s general estate and income. Summing up the Vice Chancellor said:— “To compel the bank to produce the defendant’s books would mean to dis close all his business interests. A bank book is not always an evidence of wealth. It often happens that a man handles millions and hasn’t a dollar in them. He is often a mere conduit. On the point that the defendant was stingy to force him to disclose his books would be going a good way. I think there has not been sufficient here to establish a right to examine. To inquire as counsel asks into this man’s private business by disclosing his bank books is in my opinion going farther than necessary. I will excuse the bank for not obeying the subpoena.” TO ACCOMMODATE thos*e who are partial to the use of atomizers in apply ing liquids into the nasal passages for catarrhal troubles, the proprietors pre pare Ely’s Liquid Cream Ba.m. Price in cluding the spraying tube is 75 cents.
