Frank Fort when he made those remarks about prosti tuting the judiciary for partisan pur poses? - Mnrpky's the Mu. The officers of the Franklin Murphy As sociation of this city deny with consider able warmth. It must be said, that they ware conducting negotiations with Mrs.. Carrie Nation, during her stay at Atlan tic City last week, with a view to se curing her services to smash with her lit tle hatchat the various booms launched against their candidate. They say that now, since a letter has been received from General Sewell unconditionally declaring in favor of their candidate, there are no other booms lo smash. All others have collapsed and sunk out of sight. The ink on the postmark showing the tine of the arrival of the General's letter at Trenton is hardly dry yet, but the contents have been spread broadcast among the faithful, and their Jubilation thereat is more than Immoderate. A copy of the letter is not given to the public, as it is a "private communication," but It Is said to declare unequivocally for Franklin Murphy, -and to express the General's en tire satisfaction over the political situa tion in New Jersey. Let us prayerfully hope the letter is not a fake but absolutely true, for Franklin Murphy will be the easiest one of the var ious candidates mentioned for the Demo crats to defeat. His endorsement by Gen eral Sewell is sufficient proof that the Sage of Camden has given up all hope of carrying the State this year. The State Hospital Scandal The more the management of the State Hospital at Trenton is laid bare, the more utterly rotten Is appears. The abuses thus far discovered include fraud and jobbery in the purchase of all sorts of supplies, tyranny and bulldoming of employes to cover up abuses, unlawful conversion of State funds and deliberate swindling of the Counties sending patients to the in stitution. All of these offences are clearly and categorically proven and sufficient material is available for about twenty in dictments against the managers of the Hospital. The facts are so plain that even the truculent "State Gazette” Is trying to hedge. It no longer screams out its con fidence in the managers of the Hospital. All It now tries to do is save Warden Hayes individually—we presume he is the man Who provides It with "pap,”—and it is willing to throw the rest of the outfit Overboard to save him. The position Is •musing. It is not to be taken seriously. One of the most remarkable of the In cidental features of the scandal Is the aerlec of Interviews with Governor Voor hees, which the Trenton papers are pub lishing. It Is certain that one or the other paper is faking or else the Gover nor to talking to suit everyone, on one •Me of the fence today and on the other tomorrow. Just which of the alternatives Is true, it Is hard to estimate. Both. papers are habitually dishonest, and when It comes to taking up a position on a public question, we all know the Gover •of. What we want at Trenton is a Demo cratic Legislature to clean out the Augean •table. The State Hospital is not the only stall which it would take a whole river to wash clean. There is the State Prison, for. instance. _ t NEW PUBLICATIONS. uteek VwU” far September. ‘ "Book World" for September fulfils its promise to keep its readers in close touch WlUi the progress made in literature, science and the arts.

Among the questions which will receive consideration at the annual convention of the State Firemen’s Relief Association, to be held at Atlantic City, September 11, will be a plan providing for the main tenance of the New Jersey Firemen’s Home at Boonton. The establishment of the home was authorized by legislation enacted In 1898, and the institution was opened in July of last year. At the time of the annual report, in October last, there were seven Inmates in the home. The home was established with funds taken from the two per cent, tax levied upon all foreign insurance companies do ing business in the State, but no definite provision has ever been made for its maintenance and the support of its in mates. Many of the veteran volunteer firemen, who practically control the relief fund, are anxious to have a part of the two per cent, tax applied to the maintenance of the home, and the convention will probably take under consideration some plan. A committee of the State Exempt Firemen’s Association has this matter now under consideration, and it is not improbable that the relief association may appoint a committee to co-operate with them. The resolution authorizing the commit tee of the Exempt Association to proceed in the matter, as adopted at the Bayonne convention, this year, was as follows:— "We recommend our Executive Com mittee, hi conjunction with the Executive Committee of the State Relief Associa tion, if their assistance can be obtained, but otherwise alone on our behalf, to use every endeavor to have a revision of all the laws of this State relating to relief association matters and the management of the Firemen's Home at Boonton, so as to bring them all into one act, which shall be In harmony with the principle of fairness to all associations, and to the methods adopted in the State of New York for New York City; that is, in cities having a paid fire department, the. Homes Hall receive twenty per cent., the Exempt Relief Association forty per cent, and the Paid Pension Fund forty per cent, of such two per cent, tax." - At present the two per cent, tax is divided equally among the volunteer and paid departments of the State, the amount received by each relief associa tion this year being about *196. A parade and banquet will be features of the convention. General Bird W. Spen cer, who has been president of the as sociation almost from its organization, will undoubtedly be re-elected without op position. Each city in the State is entitled to send three delegates.

Is It the "True American” or the "State Gazette” or Is Governor Voor hees Riding Two Horses. In the Trenton “True American” of yes terday the following appears:— "Governor Foster M. Voorhees will in sist upon the investigation at the State Hospital extending to subjects other than the food furnished by Warden William P. Hayes. "His Excellency reached this- conclusion last night, after hearing testimony which could not fail to convince him that after all the food question was one of a number of abuses existing at the institution and which have been pointed out through the columns of the ‘True American.’ "The scope of the investigation was en larged only after the charges already made had been so fully justified as to convince the Governor that his official reputation would suffer should he follow the wishes of the managers in limiting the inquiry. “Several facts were very clearly brought out at yesterday’s proceedings, among them being that the Board of Managers has been ignorant of many of the actual conditions at the hospital; that complaints | made by the medical department to the warden, and even to the managers, have been ignored; that Warden Hayes exer cised almost no personal supervision over the department under his charge; that the patients are cheaply and poorly clothed; that they are improperly fed, and that there is a general lack of harmony be tween the several branches of the hospi tal management. "The day's proceedings opened with the startling charge by Counselor John H. Backes that about $65,000 had been annual ly misappropriated by the management, and wound up with the Investigating Committee so clearly on the defensive that the members were seeking vindica tion even through the witnesses on the stand through whom they attempted to prove official ignorance on their part ct conditions so forcibly proven to exist as to be uncontradictable.” Today’s “True American” had this to say on the same subject:— "The attitude of Governor Voorhees, ac cording to a statement made by him to a "True American” reporter, is exactly in line with the stand taken by Mr. Backes as regards the expenditure of the so called earnings of the hospital. "The Governor pointed out that the leg islature is the body in which is vested the power to expend money, and to say how it shall be expended. "For the managers of the State Hos pital or any other institution to accumu late funds and then say how they shall be spent, except by specific direction of the legislature, the Governor believed to be a usurption of the functions of the law-making body. "The Governor further expressed a firm conviction that the managers should not have charged the counties for the sup port of county patients more than the amount actually needed for their mainte nance. •Whenever there was a considerable balance at the end of the fiscal year the Governor said it should have been turned back into the State treasury to be dis posed of by the legislature. The Trenton "State Gazette” also has something to say this morning about the Governor's attitude. It says:— "Contrary to the statements made lo cally yesterday that Governor Voorhees proposed investigating everything and anything at the State Hospital, such is not his intention, as his own statements prove. "Yesterday morning he sent for Judges Thompson and Vroom, the former being the head of the Investigating Committee and the latter president of the Board of Managers, and held a long consultation with them in his office at the State House. "The whole trouble at the hospital was gone over in detail, including Mr. Backes’s charges of the misappropriation of $66,000, which should have gone for the maintenance of the patients, but which it is alleged did not. "When Judges Thompson and Vroom left Governor Voorhees's office it was with one point settled—that of further in vestigation. It was deemed impossible to Investigate everything that might be charged from time to time by people out side the institution, unless enough facts were given to warrant the opening of suoh inquiry, without the subsequent worry of its falling flat. "This was the conclusion reached by the committee who visited the Governor, and It agrees so well with his expressed opinion that it Is unlikely that any fur ther trouble will result. "In answer to a "State Gazette” re porter’s question as to whether or not he had asserted that he would continue the investigation at the State Hospital so as to include the coal and other sup plies, Governor Voorhees said:— “I stated that I would be willing and glad to Investigate any specific charges made against the State Hospital, if brought to my attention by responsible parties who could give me facts in the case. «* ‘I stated that I would be willing and glad to investigate any specific charges made against the State Hospital, if brought to my attention by responsible parties who could give me facts in the case. “ ‘It would not be possible to start an investigation upon any complaint, which might be made by any one, unless there were some facts to work upon. “ ‘The conference with Judge Thomp son and Vroom was at my solicitation, and we discussed the matter in all its phases, with a view of seeing our way clear by the shortest route.’ ” NEW FISH AND GAME ASSOCIATION.

Kennedy, manager of Ar mour A Co.’g Exhibit at the Trans Missiseippl Exposition at Omaha, Neb., writes the following of Peruna, as a care for that common phase of summer ca tarrh, known as Indigestion. Miss Kennedy gays: “I found the continual change of diet Incidental to eight years’ traveling com pletely upset mydlgestlve system. In con sulting several physletan s they decided I suffered with catarrh of the stomach. “ Their pre scriptions did not seem to help me any, so, reading of the remarkable *—* iy cures effected by the use of Peruna I decided to try It and soon found myself well repaid. “1 hare now used Peruna for about three months and feel completely re* Juvenated. I belle re I am permanently cored, and do not heeitate to giro an* stinted praise to your great remedy, Peruna.” The cause* of summer catarrh are first, chronlo catarrh j second, derange ments of the stomach and liver j third, Impure blood. Such being the ease anyone who knows anything whatever about the operations of Peruna can understand why this remedy is a permanent cure for summer catarrh. It eradicates chronlo eatarrh from the system, invig orates the stomach and liver, cleanses ths blood of all impurities, and there fore permanently cure* by removing ths cause,—a host of maladies peculiar to hot weather. The cause being removed the symptoms disappear of themselves. “Summer Catarrh” eent free to any address by The Peruna Medicine Go« Columbus, Ohio. ST.

Former Governor Peter Turney, oPdmp* nessee, had a peculiar experience with General Stonewall Jackson. It was in Virginia, of course. Colonel Turney had never seen the General, but about mid night received orders to prepare three days’ rations and be ready to move at a moment's notice. Two hours later came an order to proceed In a certain direc tion, and that at a certain point on the road he would find a guide. At the point a citizen rode up, and, merely indicating the direction, rode along with the Colonel in silence. Before day they came upon a plain-looking man wearing a small cap and mounted on a little pony. He fell in with the head of the column and along they rode, still in silence. Soon after daybreak the new-comer said: “Colonel, had you not better halt your men for breakfast?” “I will before long," was the reply. The silence was only broken half an hour later by a similar suggestion and a simi lar reply. Finally the new-comer stopped glancing around at the sky and landscape and said: "Colonel, halt your men for breakfast.” Colonel Turney, thinking that this was a plain countryman, who felt oversorry for the men, did so. When the march was resumed the stranger remarked that the regiment was straggling a good deal, and when Colonel Turney gave a command for the head of the column to “short step” the stranger said: “No, that will throw your men all out. It should be slow-step.” This was a command to which the Tennesseeans were not accus tomed, and, putting a private on his pony, the stranger took the head of the column on foot and showed the men how to march. While this was going on Colonel Turney asked his adjutant who the stranger was, and when the reply came “Stonewall Jackson” you could have bought the Colonel for a nickel. He was on foot, the very head man, in such close proximity to the enemy that the battle was on in half an hour, and yet teaching the soldiers how to march.— Memphis Commercial-Appeal. How a Bsawty Wished to Bo Buried L’Echo de Paris publishes the following extracts from the will of the Countess de Caotiglione, the beauty of the second em pire, and the recluse of recent days. The beauty had decided ideas anent the man ner of ber burial. She wrote:—"My old nurse alone shall be admitted to see me when I am dressed In the manner which I herewith set down: —■Batiste nightgown of 1857, long lace gown striped with black velvet. The pearl necklace with six strings of white pearls and three strings of black pearls; the necklace which. I always wore, with the sou inclosed In crystal and monogrammed with two V’s interlaced; and a crown. "All the costumers know this ornament. Bare feet and bare arms. At my feet my embalmed dogs Toto and Zlg, which are in the basket of burial clothes. At my neck, with the pearls, the medal from Lourdes.” These curious instructions were not car ried out, as the countess died suddenly and the obsequies we.re over before her friend and executor, Leon Clery, could ar rive from Italy.

WHY HIS HAIR TURNED WHITE Coronal Casey’s Weird: Tale of His Indian Experience. One night recently a party of old-time New Mexicans accidentally met in a Western town, and after talking over old times they proceeded to congratulate each other on their youthful appearance. Col onel D. C. Casey, superintendent of ths Medler mines, was one of the group. Some one remarked that while the spring of youth seemed to abide with the colonel, the frosts of winter had slivered his erst while raven locks. "Well,” said the colonel, "I’ll tell you how it happened, boys, and I never told the story before. It was the year that Judge MeComas and his wife were killed by the Indians in the Burro Mountains —'83 or '84, I have forgotten which. It wa6 some time after that event, however, when things had quieted down a bit. I had been in the hills for some time and was returning to Silver City through the ‘Burro Mountains, and, of course, was on the lookout for Indians, My horse became sick and I stopped to let him rest. I pull ed off the saddle, tied him to a tree, spread out' my blankets and lay down. I was soon fast asleep, but how long I slept I do not know. I was awakened by some one prodding me In the back. As soon as my eyes were open I saw that I was sur rounded by twelve or fifteen Indians. They all carried Long Toms and had them in their hands. 'Well, sir, I was so badly seared that I could not speak or move—I was paralyzed. I sat there and looked at the Indians and they looked at me. I felt my hair straightening out, and I knew that It was standing straight up. I thought of every mean thing I had done in all my life. Pray? No, I couldn’t lift a hand to bless myself. I knew they would kill me and my only hope was that they would shoot me. I could almost feel their lances sticking through my body. It seemed to me that they stood there an age and looked at me and I looked at them. Their ugly mugs are stamped on my memory forever. I would recognize any one of them in a crowd today if I should meet him. Soon I noticed two or three other In dians fooling with my horse, as he was too sick to try to get away from then:. Presently they commenced to go, one at a time, and soon they were all gone but one, who seemed to be the boss of the outfit. After they had all gone he ad dressed me In good English, and said:— ‘Good day, Dan Casey.’ How he knew my name has always been a mystery to me. He may have seen me on the reservation, or possibly my name mgy have been on some part of my outfit and he could read, as many of them can. “After he had gone I still sat there so badly scared that I was unable to move for I don’t know how long. I thought they would come back and would kill me should I attempt to get up. Then, like a flash of lightning, it came to me that they were government scouts. I leaped to my feet, threw the saddle onto my horse, and, although he was sick, I am sure that I beat all re cords covering the distance to Sliver City. I felt so good when I got Into town thai I ‘set’ ’em up’ to everybody. I told them it was my birthday and that never was I so happy In all my life, and that was the truth. I have been blown up In a mine, hava had my body crushed and filled with dynamite caps, which kept the doctors busy for a week picking them out, but I never was scared before or isinee.. There is no scare on earth like Shat of an Indian scare. Well, inside of * week from that time my hair was well rprinkled with gray, and Inside of a year t WAS as white as It Is today,”—Clifton Er> NOTICE. TOWHOM THIS MAY CONCERN—MRS. J. C.
