Paris says it is not, and Paris may be right for once. If we have the right man, however, we have one desperate peril to avoid— ’.hat of trusting him. He is to be relied upon in any bargain he may pretend :o make for his liberty, about as much as a Malay pirate. The more we trust him the surer he will be to betray us, for he will get to think us “easy.” Extra Session Programme. We still insist upon it that if a special session is to be held, the Morris ^anal issue should be embraced in the programme. Newark wants something; bo does Jersey City. It should be a joint gain or no gain to anyone. Janies Stephens the Arch Eenian. James Stephens, the Fenian Head Centre, whose death was cabled from Dub Jn yesterday, was a very remarkable man. He constructed one of the most for midable conspiracies of modern times, and the reforms—such as they are—which England has granted to Ireland in the last quarter of a century have been in no small degree the outcome of his and his associates' work. The Fenian movement is estimated to have had at least 25,000 sworn adherents n 1865 and 1866 in Ireland. Considerable money and arms were in their hands and :he public sentiment of the country was fast being educated up to a revolt. Above all, the conspiracy included many soldiers and non-commissioned officers !n the English army—some thousands, even, it is said by those who may well have known. This was probably the fact that most alarmed British statesmen. What the result of an appeal to arms would have been, it is impossible to say. The Fenians hoped for a foreign war, but as we now know, England had a season of extraordinary freedom from serious foreign conflicts. However, it is useless to speculate on what might have happened, seeing that Stephens proved wanting in the courage necessary to make the trial. When he was helped to escape from Richmond Prison in Dublin in 1865, he Hastened out of the country as soon as he could safely do so, leaving his associates to their fate—long terms of imprisonment. He lived luxuriously in Paris; then in America. In his famous Jones' Wood speech he declared that he would next be heard of heading rebel bands on the green hillsides of Ireland. A few weeks after he was found skulking in Brooklyn. After that he was nobody—not even a name. For the last ten years he has been living in Dublin on the proceeds of a fund raised for him by the people of Ireland. Recently he has been in a con dition of senile imbecility. He was a great organizer. He probably had some true patriotic impulse. But he was a coward and all his better qualities were dwarfed by his monstrous/ selfishness and egotism. One thing remains to his credit as it does to the credit of all the leaders of the palmy- days of Fenianism. He was an advocate only of honorable warfare. The methods of the dynamiter and the assassin were always abhorrent to him. Dr. McGill’s Crusade. Dr. McGill's assurance that the police crusade—is that the word—on gambling Is not a spasm is highly satisfactory. Gambling ought to be stamped out and it can be stamped out, and the assurance that Dr. McGill means to have it done shows that he is the right man in the right place. It Is in vain that cavillers may ask vrhy the great reform is only just now taken up. It is in vain for them to point to comparatively recent assurances by the Doctor that there was no gambling—that is none worth speaking of—in the city. If the Doctor finds he was mistaken and is now better posted, and if with his new light he is keyed up to new exertions, why, so much the better. The taxpayers, however, would like to know whether it is going to take the services of two detectives to keep every suspected poolroom in town out of busi ness. If so, it is to be hoped the number of suspected places is not large, for (3,000 a year each to keep them closed would be a trifle steep. One would think some other effective method of attack could be devised. Dr. NlcGill and tine Poster Girl. The Doctor’s crusade on decollete posters seems rather an exaggeration of seal. In a city where the New York yellow papers are allowed to circulate freely, it seems a trifle inconsistent to wax squeamish over a pair of shapely tights on a billboard. It really does not seem as if anything bad enough to call for police interfer ence hud recently been displayed on the dead walls of this city, and it is going out of the way to find something wrong to start a crusade of this sort at this time. Tights are an accepted feature of stage shows, and so long as the public Judg ment approves them it is ridiculous to kick at their counterfeit presentment. Sunday Drinking and Sunday Selling. Dr. McGill—dear, dear what a variety of irons the Doctor has in the fire these days—Is both liberal and enlightened in his views on Sunday liquor selling. He is practical besides. The proposal to allow the sale of drink behind drawn blinds on Sundays after 1 P. M. is both wise and feasible. Total abolition of Sunday drinking or liquor selling is as Impossible as it is to make water flow up hill. It is quite absurd to talk of this half way open Sunday as a German or a French Sabbath. In Germany. France and all the other Continental countries of Europe, liquor selling is as open and free on Sunday as any other day. Your continental cannot understand why people should thirst less on one day than an other and they can see no more irreverence in drinking than in eating on Sun day. They are too logical, however, for Anglo-Saxon prejudice. The Sunday which Dr. McGill proposes is the English or Irish Sunday, only 2 r. M. to 10 P. M. are the limits within which liquor can be sold in England or Ireland. Our own style of Sunday closing is not, as people often call it, the American Sabbath; it is the Scotch Sabbath. In Scotland, every drinking place Is closed on Sunday—really closed, closed as Llncks and his associates would have it if they could—and there Is more drunkenness in Glasgow on one Sunday than In all the rest of the "United Kingdom” In alt the Sundays In the year. The fact Is no torious. Each family lays in its supply of John Barleycorn overnight and they drink it all day, even down to the babies. By all means let us have the wise and liberal arrangement which Dr. McGill advocates. -— Won't Forget Mr, Reed. . When Charles A. Reed, the debonair Senator from Somerset, runs for Gover nor, he will wasto his time If he comes gunning for votes in Hudson. There Is a well founded belief that he Is responsible for the failure of the Legislature to pass the bill providing for a park in the Hudson City section. One gentleman who went to Trenton to ascertain what the trouble was with the Hudson City park bill said that he found it was being held up by Mr. Reed, and when he tried to reason with the gentleman from Somerset, he was treated discourteously. The people in the old Hudson City section are very much in earnest over this matter, and they feel very bitter towards Mr. Reed for his Interference with their cherished plans. If there Is any consolation In the thought, they have plenty of company In their misery, and so these good citizens should be consoled. The in •olent manner in which Senators Pitney. Reed and Stokes ruled the Senate during the last session and held up any and every measure according to their own sweet will, was a despotic abuse of power such aS was never attempted even In the worst days of the infamous race track legislation. What perplexes the people of Jersey City Is why a representative of a rural district, miles from hero, should take such an interest in a purely Jersey City measure which in nowise affects his county. They will not forget Mr. Reed even if they never succeed in solving this mystery, and whenever the opportunity pre sents itself they will rebuke the gentleman in a substantial manner. A Spiritless Affair. Earnest inquiries are being made among the salubrious hills of Morris as to where Senator Pitney has been, this week. How It ever happened the worthy rustics csn't understand; but on Tuesday Frank Dye, Secretary of the State Board of Agriculture, decided that there would be no applejack In the New Jersey exhibit at the Pan-American Fair. Now applejack, sometimes spoken of as ‘‘Jersey Lightning," is one of the chief products of Morris county, and some of the best fluid that ever tickled the throat of the thirsty has been distilled in that county from a time beyond which the memory of man runneth not. One of the finest brands of this delightful tanglefoot used to be produced by an ancestor of the present Senator from Mor ris, and “old apple brandy," together with the asylum at Morris Plains and the Methodist Camp Meeting ground at Mount Tabor have made the county famous all over the State. Morris county applejack has always been a matter of pride with the denizens of that bailiwick, and to have their pride thus ruthlessly assaulted by a ‘‘long whiskered gent from South Jersey, whose knowledge of agriculture was acquired in digging soft clams in Shark River”—we quote here the sage of Netcong—is more than any ordinary Morrislte can stand. They all know it never could have hap pened if Mr. Pitney had been in Trenton, and they are wondering where he can have lost himself. They freely predict that the Jersey exhibit will be a failure, and they want to know how Pan-America is going to get an adequate idea of the greatness of, the Garden State if there Is to be no applejack on exhibition. AMUSEMENTS. Academe of Music. Commencing Monday, April 1, the first literally Afro-American company ever or ganized will be the attraction, headed by the famous Bob Cole and Billy John son, in the genuine comic novelty, “A Trip to Coontown.” The play’s a stream from which bubbles originality. Support ed by a great fun producing corps are Lloyd S. Gibbs, greatest living black tenor; the only Sam Lucas; Thomas Craig, basso; Rastus and Banks, acro bats; Murphy and Slater, eccentric come dians; Miss Edna Alexander, the marvel ous soprano; Theresa Bluford, Pauline Humphreys, Kate Grasses, Ida Bluford, Barry Carter, William Carle, George Brown and Sam Cousins. There is a Chorus of well trained voices, with new songs, dances, specialties, costumes and scenery. Broadway Theatre. The big Drury Lane melodrama, “The Price of Peace,” which was presented for the first time in America Thursday even ing, March 21, at the Broadway Theatre, New York, has scored the greatest suc cess of the new century in the theatrical world. In immensity, in beauty of scenic effects, in thrilling situations, in dignity of theme and in strength of cast it goes a step beyond any 'London production that has ever been transferred to the American stage. Alan Dale in the New York ’ Journal” admits “The Price of Peace” is colossal. He says, “Those who are interested in the glories of stage mechanism will not regret a visit to the Broadway.” The “World” says:-“Scenic ally ’The Price of Peace’ is the most elaborate Drury Lane play that has crossed the ocean. It makes ‘The Sport ing Duchess’ and ‘The Great Ruby’ ap pear insignificant by contrast.” The Times has It:—“Pictoriaily the perform ance was prodigiously successful from first to last. Dramatically it has its positively stirring moments.” Franklin Fyles in the “Sun” remarks:—“Nothing bigger or better has ever been displayed in New York,” and Acton Davies in the “Evening Sun” says:—“Mr. Litt has sup plied a cast of remarkable excellence.” James L. Ford in the “Evening Journal” says:—“Mr. Litt need have no fears for his new attraction. It has come at a moment when the public is clamoring for strong dramatic food, and it will surely supply that demand and give liberal good measure, too.” The "Evening World” concedes the production to be “a marvel of stagecraft,” and the ‘tHerald” uses the expression, “a triumph of realism.” The Press” adds:—“The piece was received with great enthusiasm by its first night audience.” The “News” concludes its criticisms by saying:—“Considered alto gether, ‘The Price of Peace’ is a great production and will rank as such in the history of local theatricals. Such scenes as the Niagara Skating Rink and the sinking of the yacht are bits of stage realism seen but once in a lifetime.” Jacob Litt, the proprietor of the Broad way Theatre, has not only given the play going public the greatest production and the most expensive cast of players of the new year, ‘but realizing the tendency of the times toward a lessening of prices demanded for first class places of amuse ment, he has made the scale of prices for this gigantic production at the Broadway Theatre fifty cents, seventy-five cent9 and $1, with choice front orchestra chairs $1.50 only (instead of $2 as heretofore). For the Wednesday matinees prices will range from twenty-five to seventy-five cents, according to location, nothing higher. For the Saturday matinee even ing prices will prevail. Irish Mnsioil Festival. There was a meeting of the General Committee in charge of the "Fels-Coil Ague Seanachas,” or Festival of Irish Music, to be given at Lenox Lyceum on Easter Tuesday, April 9th, by the Gaelic Society, at its parlors, No. 47 West Forty second street, New York, last night. The secretary read letters from Supreme Court Justices Morgan J. O'Brien, James Fitz gerald, James A. O’Gorman, Dr. Thomas Addis Emmet, Dr. Thomas Hunter, presi dent of the Normal College; Rt. Rev. John M. Farley, Auxiliary Bish op of New York; Recorder Goff, Hon. M. M. O'Brien and Rt. Rev. James A. McFaul, Bishop of Tren ton and others consenting to serve as pa trons of the festival. Theo. Wolfe Tone Maxwell, great grandson of T. Wolf Tone of ’9S fame expiessed his “gratification as an American to serve as a patron of a function which in its effects must lead to a higher appreciation of the influence of Irish blood and temperament of our in stitutions of the Republic.” The committee on music reported that the programme had been completed and printed and that th* numbers chosen for presentation at theP’Feis” were the gems of the best of the ancient and modern Irish bards. SHE WAS NOT A HOLLAND In the play, "The Power Behind the Throne,” in which Mildred Holland is making a brilliant success, it is necessary to rehearse a large number of “supers.” The company proper is one of the largest on the road, but in several scenes the stage is a veritable army of characters. It was while rehearsing some of these mage aspirants that Miss Holland cor rected the speech of one of the girls sev eral times. “You don’t speak that right,” she said, “throw some force into your words. Speak it as If you really meant it. Speak it as I do.” Miss Holland then repeated the speech with fervor and the young woman walked away. "What's the matter?” Miss Holland asked her, “can’t you do that?” “If I could speak it like that,” respond ed the "super,” “do you think I would work for a dollar a night?” She spoke it to suit herself.

THE FINAL SETTLEMENT Lecturship for Next Year Tendered the Statesman By Dr. Polton. [Special to "The Jersey City News.”] PRINCETON, March 30, 1901.—Ex President Cleveland delivered, his second lecture on the Venezuelan boundary dis pute Thursday night before a much larger audience than greeted him Wednes day night. He dealt more particularly with the part played by his administra tion in the matter and his address was punctuated by frequent outbursts of ap plause. President Patton introduced him and at the lecture’s close tendered him the in cumbency of the lectures for next year. This act was followed by prolonged cheers. Mr. Cleveland reminded his hearers that it was in 1876 that Venezuela made its first appeal to the United States in regard to the boundary controversy be tween this South American republic and 3reat Britain. Five years afterward the Venezuelan minister in Washington ap pealed very strongly to Mr. Evarts, and was met with words of encouragement. In 1881 Mr. Blaine became interested in the matter. In 1884 Mr. Frelinghuysen communicated with Mr. Lowell on the subject, and later Secretary Bayard and Minister Phelps took the matter up and pressed it forward. Aii aooi our mimsier to threat uritain 'ormally tendered to the English govern ment "the good offices" of the United States to promote an amicable settlement bf the pending controversy, offering our irbitration if acceptable to both parties. This tender was refused by Lord Salis bury. The lecturer narrated some of the’inci ients having to do with the collection of lamages by Great Britain from Vene zuela in connection with the seizure of two English vessels and their crews, in the disputed region, for alleged violation bf the laws of Venezuela within her juris liction. In this case the English authorities re fused certain friendly overtures in the interest of an amicable seettlement on the part of the American minister to Venezuela. Further details were given, showing the relation of Secretary Blaine md Minister Lincoln to the boundary controversy. Mr. Cleveland 'described, also, his own iction as President during his second term, culminating in England’s -absolute refusal “to permit Venezuela's claim to be tested by arbitration,” while “Vene zuela was utterly powerless to forcibly resist England’s self-pronounced decree bf ownership.” He quoted from his own mention of the subject in his annual message to Con gress, spoke of the joint resolution of Con gress in Februaiy, 1895, in favor of friend ly arbitration, and referred to the efforts Df Mr. Bayard, vho had then become our ambassador to London. “It now,” said Mr. Cleveland, “became plainly apparent that a new stage had been reached in the progress of our inter vention. and that the ominous happenings of a few months has hastened the day when we were challenged to take our ex act bearings, lest we should miss the course of honor and national duty. The more direct tone that had been given to our dispatches concerning the dispute, our more insistent and emphatic suggestion of arbitration, the serious ref erence to the subject in the President’s message, the significant resolution passed by Congress earnestly recommending ar bitration, all portended a growth of con viction on the part of our government concerning this controversy, which grew to pronounced disappointment and anx iety when Great Britain, concurrently with these apprising incidents, repeated in direct and positive terms her refusal to submit to arbitration, except on condi tion that a portion of the disputed terri tory which Venezuela had always claimed to be hers should at the outset be irre vocably conceded to England.” Mr. Cleveland further said: “Recreancy to a principle so fundamentally Ameri can as the Monroe doctrine, on the part of those charged with the administration of our government was of course out of Lite qucowun. “Inasmuch, therefore, as all our efforts to avoid its assertion had miscarried, there was nothing left for us to do, con sistently with national honor, but to take the place of Venezuela in the controversy, so far as that was necessary in vindica tion of our American doctrine^ “Our mild and amiable proffers of good offices, and the hopes we indulged that at last they might be the means of securing to a weak sister republic peace and justice and to ourselves immunity from sterner interposition, were not suited to the new emergency. "In our advanced position sympathy for Venezuela and solicitude for her distress ed condition were no longer to be the mo tive power of our conduct, but were io give way to the duty and obligation to protect our own national rights.” In passing, he made a cordial reference to the late Secretary Gresham, and came then to Mr. Olney’s part in the negotia tions. In 1885 Mr. Olney, said Mr. Cleve land. at the suggestion of the President, “began, with characteristic energy and vigor, to make preparation for the decis ive step which it seemed to our govern ment could not longer be delayed.’’ Mr. Cleveland said:—“Whatever our be lief or convictions might be, as derived from the examination we had thus far given the case, and however strongly we might be persuaded that Great Britain's pretensions, if allowed, must result in such European colonization as would violate the Monroe doctrine, it would nevertheless have been manifestly im proper and heedless on our part to find conclusively against Great Britain, before soliciting her again and in new circum stances to give us an opportunity to judge of the merits of her claims through her submission of them to arbitration.’’ He then recited the last decisive steps taken by our government, including his own message to Congress and the support by Congress of his suggestion of a eom tn.sslon on. the subject. The lecture concluded with a descrip tion of the subsequent action of Great Britain in acceding ts arbitration as urged by the United States, and gave an ac count of the final settlement which, ae SUPERINTENDENT AT BUFFALO EXHIBITION. Sickness Driven from Entire Family by Paine’s Celery Compound. Spring is here. Purify your bleed. Take Paine s eelcr;. compound. It is the one spring remedy sought af ter and highly esteemed by intelligent, earnest men and women throughout th; land. Paine's celery compound has created its own constituency. Men and women who have never taken a spoonful of any sarsaparilla or patent medicine of any sort, nor allowed them to enter their homes, not only use Paine's celery compound when themselves sick, but persuade their families to do the same. And yet whan the history of this won derful remedy is studied it is easy to un derstand why Paine’s celery compound thus stands alone and superior to all rem edies in the estimation of the public. It is a physician's remedy. It is tile prescription of Edward E. Phelps, M.D., LL.D., Professor of Materia Medica at Dartmouth College. There is no mistaking the standing of Paine's celery compound in the family of Maj. A. M. Wheeler. Supt. of Exhibits at the Pan-Amcrican Exposition. New York State Commissioner at the Atlanta Expo sition, and former Asst. Postmaster of Buffalo:— Buffalo, N. Y., Feb. 2, 1901. Dear Sirs:—Being run down from over work, physically and mentally, I tried Paine’s celery compound as a remedy. It undoubtedly did me much good. My wife and some of my relatives have also been ! using it, and inform me they have been /ery greatly benefited. Sincerely yours, ALGER M. WHEELER. The superiority of Paine's celery com pound is well illustrated by the way en- : | tire families are benefited whenever any ; one member of the household tries it. ; Nothing is more common than for hus- ! band, wife and children to be led to use it, j because they have observed its health- j making effects in the case of some relative j or intimate friend. Young and old now need to take a spring remedy to pur fy their blood, to feed their tired nerves, and to invigorate their bodies Long experience has shown the necessity of such a spring cleaning for everybody, sick or well. Thousands are taking Paine’s celery compound. It is so far above all other spring medi cines in its strengthening, nerve restoring, blood purifying, health giving, lasting ef fects that it has no competitor among dis criminating people. The old “cures” one by one. in the last few years, have dropped by the way, until today the sales of Paine's celery com pound in ev:ery civilized country are j larger than those of all other spring rem edies of all kinds combined. People just sick enough not to be healthy—every city is full of such semi invalids—should take advantage of Paine's celery compound to put their blood and nerves into a healthy condition. Spring is the time to get well. HELP WANTED. ladies~to do~~plain sewing at home: $9 week; steady work: we fur nish and send material, prepaid, any where; stamped addressed envelope for particulars.

New York. cording to this account, was vastly more favorable to Venezuela than has been supposed by many. He 6aid- that his hearers would very likely be surprised that this “controversy was so long chronic, and yet in the end yielded so easily to pronounced treat ment.” He added:—“My own surprise and dis i appointment have arisen more from the I honest misunderstanding and dishonest and insincere misrepresentation on the part of many of our people regarding the motives and purposes of the interference of the Government of the United States in-this affair.” After a reference to the complaint? on the part of "“those engaged in speculation and stock gambling,” he concluded with these words:— “I hope there are but few of our fellow citizens who, in their retrospects, do not now acknowledge the good that ha? come ! to our nation through this episode in our ! history. “It has established the Monroe doctrine on lasting foundation? before the eyes of the world; it i\a? given u» a better place in the respect and consideration of the people of all nation.?, and especially of Great Britain; it has again confirmed our confidence in the overwhelming preval ence among our citizens of disinterested devotion to American honor; and last, but by no means least, it has taught u«s where to look In the rank? of our country men for the best patriotism.” IN CHANCERY OF NEW JERSEY.
