Nugent, Seymour and Hoos. * It is amusing to see Chairman Nugent of the Essex County Democratic Com mittee backing Mayor Hoos for Governor. It shows that he does not know much about the political history of Hudson county or else that he ha6 little belief in the arguments which he advances against Mayor Seymour of Newark. Nugent and his associates are against Seymour because he has not been a politician*' Mayor. The politicians of Hudson make exactly the same criticism of Mr. Hoos, and assuredly with good grounds. Mr. Nugent, in his anxiety to beat Seymour, is mixed up in mind. Of eouns* Mayor Hoos would make an admirable Governor; but «o would Mayor Seymour. The difference is that Seymour would be certain of election If named, whereas we doubt if any citizen of foreign birth and speaking dialectic English, as fMayor Hoos does, could carry this State. The Party and Smith. The headline of the “Evening Journal,” last evening, “Seymour Expects to Rout Smith,'' Is misleading. The question is not of routing Smith or anyone else. If Smith were routed, the situation would not be a specially pleasing one. The idea is to bring Smith into line, to get him to see that the Democracy has a huge chance of winning with Seymour, this year, and only a second rate chance of electing anybody eke. Ttie Delaware River Catastrophe. The appalling disaster on the Delaware River, on Wednesday, when one of the boilers of the City of Trenton blew up and numerous persons were killed and in jured, recalls the old days of steamboatin’ on the Mississippi when the rivalry wes to keen and competition was so bitter that a captain would rather blow his boat up any day than have it passed by one of a rival line. There is every Indication that something akin to this spirit is responsible for Wednesday’s catastrophe. The City of Trenton and the Twilight belong to opposition lines which are exceed ingly jealous of each other and are doing ail in their power to secure the river business between Trenton and Philadelphia and the intermediate points. Both veseelo were bound up the river close to each other and both were being pushed forward at the top of their speed at the time when the “accident” happened. In fact, it was said that the City of Trenton was being pushed to make more miles than she was ever built to make when the explosion came, and there is little doubt that the two boat* were racing. This, of course, is denied by all connected with the steamboats, but people on board and witnesses of the catastrophe from the shore all declare that a race was in progress. The United States authorities have started an investigation, and if It I* shown that the captains in their rivalry unnecessarily placed the lives of tfieir paaeengeTe in jeopardy, they will be called strictly to account. The owner* of the boats, who force their captains to run such risks for the few dollars there may be In it, should also be made to suffer. There is still too much recklessness on our inland waters, and this is not a bad opportunity for setting an example Which will check U. Murphy a Double Scapegoat. The faet that the Republican State Committee, at its meeting in Trenton, on Wednesday, took no action on the resignation of Franklin Murphy as Chairman has given rise to the report that in case Mr. Murphy secures the Republican nomi nation for Governor he is to be allowed to remain at the head of the Committee and conduct his own campaign. Precedent for such an unusual course is found in the action of Governor Odell of New York, who remained at the head of the •tate Committee and successfully conducted the campaign which resulted in his own election. The reason given for following this course in New Jersey Is that no one can be found among the real Republican leaders who cares to shoulder the responsi bility for the defeat to which the party is doomed in next November. They all know that with Franklin Murphy as the candidate they cannot win, and each would rather the blame and censure which always fall to the lot of the unsuc cessful Chairman should be bestowed upon some one else. Edward C. Stokes, now Clerk In Chancery, is the man whom the greater majority of the party would like to see at the head of the machine, and many have urged him to take the place. But Mr. Stokes is wise in his day and generation, and his many pri vate interests simply make it Impossible for him to immolate himself in Frank lin Murphy's behalf. Then our own Colonel Samuel Dickinson was selected to assume command of the Republican forces; but Sammy is also wise, and with that what-are-you-giving-me smile of his, like Julius Caesar, he has thrice refused the proffered crown. Then it was that some- genius suggested that, it would be a good Idea to refuse to accept Mr. Murphy’s resignation and keep him at the head of the Com mittee, especially as It began to look as though he would be the candidate. The idea is g. ind. When the party begins to pull itself together after the trouncing which It will get in November, and when it looks about it to find .out what has happened, it will be In order for all hands to heap abuse upon the devoted head of Mr. Mnrphy and bury forever his political aspirations. It Is rather a bold scheme, bold enough In fact to have been hatched by Major Carl Lentz and his protege, Senator McCarter of Essex. There is only one weak spot in It—Murphy. He has not been heard from. Teacher* Vacation Pay. The "Evening Journal" appears to be trying to manufacture a scandal out of the fact that certain school teachers have got married and have resigned their situations after having drawn pay for the summer vacation. Why should they not do so? They have worked through the sebool year and earned the vacation, and all ■that goes with it. No teacher ever begins her career with two months vacation under pay. The vacation is the closing fraction of the teacher's year and not Its beginning. Any teacher who did not secure her vacation pay before resigning would be simply a fool. The Pound Fishermen. There are indications that the old war on the pound net fishermen along the New Jersey coast, which has been suspended for the past few years. Is to be renewed with vigor. It is a very serious question from Sandy Hook to Bar negat, and no action should be taken by the Legislature without careful and in telligent consideration. When the last effort was made In the Legislature, a few winters ago, to abolish the pounds, a large delegation of rod and reel men and hand fishermen appeared before the committee having oharge of the bill and declared that the pound fishermen, if allowed to remain, would put an end to hook and line fish ing Ml the hays and inlets along the coast. Time has shown that this fear was groundless, and It Is a long while since that kind of fishing along our coast has been better’ than it was during the past season. At that time it was also urged that many of the food fishes from the pounds were sold for fertilizing purposes. The story, however, was stoutly denied and there has never been brought for ward enough proof to substantiate It. Borne good arguments in fuvor of the pounds were laid before tihe Legislature. It was shown that the pounds brought to the people more and better food fishes at lower prices than before, and ait all seasons of the year excellent fish was to be found upon the market at prices which placed It at the disposal of the poorest. There appeared before the Legislature at the same time a large number of pound fishermen, who showed that a large capital had been invested in the industry, and several hundred men, mostly all residents of this State, were given employ ment. The large amount of money which they were paid In wages was spent in the state, and the industry was one of grea/t Importance to the residents of the Atlantic coast of New Jersey. The Legislature apparently looked with favor upon the industry as the bill fior Its abolition was defeated. The arguments In favor of tbe pound fisheries, which woff them, ore Just as forcible now as ever, and the Legislature should examine closely Into the matter before taking *ay action against them. AMUSEMENTS. Academy of Mtuie. ■When. Joseph Arthur's successful play. "The Cherry Pickers,” *a? first produced the originality Of Its plot and the clever character drawing caused it to be hailed with acclaim by prase and public alike. The story is told with vivid'distinctness, and while the interest is maintained at fever pitch throughout it is done without in any way sacrificing the logical sequence of the incidentally vthrllUng situation*. The atmosphere of social-military life In British India Is truthfully and skillfully depicted and the types of character are excellently portrayed ■ by an unusually strong company engaged to present the play this season. The Intensity and dar ing of the great gun scene, which forms a climax to the third act, never fails to deeply impress the audience. It leaves a lasting impression on the memory, "The Cherry Pickers" open* a week’s engage ment at the Academy of Music on Mon day afternoon and at the same time the regular season of Academy commences. Bijou Theatre. If "The Penitent" as a play bears out the (Strength of its title. It will prove one of the successes of the season in this city. Jersey City thoroughly appreciates the privilege of being the first to endorse the new stage creation, consequently It will have a special welcome for “The Peni tent,” which will be seen here for the first time on any stage. It i* a wise choice for Manager Holmes, opening of the second week of the new season at the Bijou Theatre, as it will doubtless con tinue the interest of what may be called the “Hall Caine jseason.” Like “The Christian," this new play Is made from one of Hall Caine's books, and is said to be the equal of his predecessor in point of character and thrilling situations. It is perhaps even more dramatic than its sister play and should prove one of the popular* attractions of the year. The opening date is Monday matinee, Labor Day, September 2. NEW PUBLICATIONS. !‘LeiU*'i Monthly” for September. The opening article of “Leslie’s Monthly" for September is upon the art of photo graphing birds, written and beautifully illustrated by Mr. A. H. Verrill, who is himself past master of the art. Booker T. Washington contributes an important paper on “How Work is Done at Tuske gee." A third article is an impartial ac count of the whipping post as it is in operation in Delaware today. Nothng could be more interesting than the per sonal narrative of Aguinaldo'a capture, written by Lieutenant Burton Mitchell, a cousin of General Funston’s and a mem ber of his staff. For persons of a me chanical turn of mind, there is a curious story upon the roller boat descriptive of the strange craft, built like a great cylin der, which the inventor insists will roll to Europe in the face of the fiercest storm. The fiction of the number is notable. It includes a capital story of the wilder West, “The Bad Man,” by E. Hough. “To Her!” a story of sentiment; “Hot Winds," a pathetic story, and the amusing tale of a successful defeat entitled "The Flight of the Victor,” by Henry L. Mencken. Marginalia ' contains several brief and taking stories. “Formin'’ for September. The leading article in the September “Forum” deals with “The Commercial Position of the British Empire.” Its author, Benjamin Taylor, urges that com putations of British trade should not be confined to the British Isles, but should include the colonies also. Another fiscal article is that by Jacob Schoenhof on "The German Tariff Proposals,” which he considers likely to Inflict a more serious injury upon Germany than upon any other nation. Sir John G. Bourinot con tributes a historical retrospect of previous “Royal Visits to Canada.” President G. Stanley Hall outlines the programme of "The Ideal School as Based on Child Study,” while F. W. Clark traces the re cord of "The Evolution of the American University.” Karl Blind criticises "Eng lish Neglect of Old Indian Poetry.” "Finland’s Plight,” by Eugene Llmedor fer, is a strong indictment of the recent policy of Russia toward her weaker neigh bor. Prof. Peter T. Austen relates a large number of recent illustrations of “The Utilization of Waste” in various scientific processes. "The Essay as Mood and Form” is the subject of a critical paper by Prof. Richard Burton. Other articles in the September number are "England, Portugal, and the South African Republics,” by Lt. Gen. Den Beer Poortugael; "A Model Factory Town,” by Leonora Beck Ellis; "Can Cubans Govern Cuba?” by Edmond Wood; and “The Southern Problem,” by George A. Thacher. Blwjty Approved "The author of ‘Wild Animals I Have Known' has a gleeful way of wrecking conventionality,” writes Myra Emmons, who describes a day in the woods with Ernest Seton-Thompson, in "The Ladies’ Home Journal” for September, “with some unexpected boyish, utterly frank, natural and human word, look or prank. When we had finished luncheon on Ab’s Rock he went to see how the painters were progressing on his new house. “ ‘Those window frames must be a light peaeock blue on the outside,’ he instructed them. The head painter demurred. He could not mix such a color. " ‘If I mix it you can copy It, can’t you?’ asked the naturalist. “ ‘Oh, yes.’ " ‘Then bring your colors.’ "In a few minutes he was blending yel low, blue and green In a masterly way and trying the effect on a piece of board. Suddenly he looked up, laughed and went on painting. “ ‘Did you hear the bluejay?’ he asked. ‘As I hit the right shade he said, ‘Bl-loo! Bl-lool That’s it! That's it! Rohm Remains 1b Britain. A few days ago some large Roman ( amphorae, or urns, were discovered In the village of Ripple, in Kent, of which the London “Graphic” gives the accompany ing pioture. The urns contained little be yond a few bones. In the ground adjoin ing were parts of several skeletons,which appear, fco have been buried face down ward. A few fragments of iron were alsc found—probably pieces of daggers or swords. The one urn is a perfect speci men, and has not yet been opened; the other two were unfortunately broken. The ground is now a gravel pit, and close by what was probably a Roman fortification. The pottery was about five feet deep, and the bones about nine feet below the present surface. The site gives the ap pearance of having been the bed of an ancient river, and there are several gravrl pits along this valley. This would ac count for the position of the Roman camp which would be on the rising grounu about «u feet above the stream. 1h «f Hair.

LEADERS Study of the Portraits of Jersey men of a De cade Ago. CHANCE8 EN YEARS With the Men Is Entangled the History of Pol ities. It is remarkable what changes have oc curred in New Jersey during the last ten years, says a Trenton letter to the New ark "Sunday Call." It is easily recalled by looking at one of the medallion groups of one hundred notables of New Jersey, which were issued by a New York publi cation just ten years ago. A number of these are still hanging in offices and li braries within the .State. The .portraits are prized by many because they recall the active Jerseymen with whom they were associated in other days. Ten years is a short space of time, but it has not been in Jersey affairs. The greatest chapters of its history have been made. Many of those prominent in politics, church and literature have gone to their long rest; others have quick ly passed into forgetfulness, and are prominent among the "has beens," while a few have survived -the vicissitudes of life and are still very much in the public eye. During the ten years there has been a complete political revofution, which made quick history, and in many in stances made sad havoc of the meh who led at that time in politics. The scythe of the grim reaper has been industriously at work on those one hun dred medallions, and has cut out many prominent portraits from the frame, the name of the owner now being a treasured memory. Tne central meaamon was licwu He was then Governor. He leads the long line of eminent Jerseymen who have gone down in rapid succession to the fate that is appointed for all men. Then came tall, dignified Senator John R. McPherson, who had served with distinction in the United States Senate for eighteen years; Judge William Walter Phelps, Congress man and diplomat at the court of the German Emperor; the venerable Chief Justice Mercer Beasley, the ideal and muchly revered head of the State Court for thirty-seven years; Chancellor Mc Gill and Chancellor Runyon, both emi nent in State affairs as well as on the bench; Governor Green, who served his State in several honorable capacities; Governor Joseph D. Bedle, active in the State courts until his death; Attornev General John P. Stockton, one of the last of a great and honored family which had more than a hundred years official life; Garret A. Hobart, who was elevated from a State to a national leader, and honored with the second place in the McKinley Administration; Charles Win field. for many years the Prosecutor of Pleas of Hudson; Congressman C. N. Pidcock, for years the Democratic leader of the Fourth district; John I. Blair, the millionaire, who could not count his mil lions; Walt Whitman, the good gray poet;’ C. K. Landis, the developer of South Jer sey pine land; Justice Job Lippincotc, farm boy, who became a great justice, Congressman W. D. Daly, at the begin ning of his career in national affaix-s; G. B. Thurston, having wide interest in railroad affairs; General George Dud ley Steel, Mayor Orestes Cleve land, of Jersey City, and the much revered Bishop Wigger of the Newark Diocese. This solemn procession of prom inent Jerseymen to the grave represents just one-fourth of the one-hundred men voted as the representative men of their day and generation ten years ago. Near the central picture of Leon Abbett is one of General W. J. Sewell, whose power as a State leader of the Republicans is stronger today than it was when the group was made. Leon Abbett and General Sewell were opposi tion leaders, but mutually respectful. Governor Abbett was consumed with the ambition to be a United States Senator, and shaped his entire Gubernatorial course looking to that end. He was the political opponent of General Sewell, but his party opponents was the former United States Senator Smith, whose coup in securing the nomination is a matter of history. James Smith’s and Senator Sewell’s pictures are close together. Ten years after it was made both men are traveling in Europe, both in search of health to prepare presumably for a clash at arms in the political arena, as it is today. James Smith, In 1891, was a Democratic leader In Essex County, fast securing rec ognition as the Democratic State leader because of his liberality. Leon Abbett’s sun was setting. He knew It as soon as he began to mix with local leaders. Ab bett was depending largely on the assist ance of James Smith to become United States Senator, and was yielding to his every demand in the making of appoint ments, but the last Tuesday of January, 1893, he bowed his head on his desk when he was shown the tally list. The memory of this day lingers in the heart of many. Leon Abbett, his namesake, has been trying to secure a place for him self In politics and may yet measure out retribution to some whom tradition charges with treachery. George T. Werts, who is a familiar .face In the famous “100,” was then a State Senator, known for his speeches, his dry humor and good-fellowship. He then lived in Morris County. He was the suc cessor of Leon Abbett. He stood by his party as the Chief Executive, bolstered by the opinion of the Attorney General as to the right of ten Democratic Senators to keep out the eleven Republicans. His successor, John W. Griggs, was as notable. He ran on the Issues of the mal administration of the Democratic party, such as bad management of the State House, misuse of money in departments, and won by ap lurality of $27,000. In an upper corner of the group is a curly-headed young man, with a thin face and a fixed jaw. It ls;Foster M. Voor hees, the present retiring Governor, wh'i has been part and parcel of the History of these historical ten years. After demon strating his leadership In the House dur ing Democratic Incumbency, he became a Senator in 1894, a leader on the floor of the Upper House. He was one of the eleven Senators locked out by the Demo cratic ten, and he showed superior gen eralship during that stormy period and be was Instrumental In averting conflicts. He was chairman of the Voorhees In- ! vestigating. Committee, which furnished him the necessary timber to make him a Gubernatorial candidate. In no Governor's life did important events come so quickly. • Whiljj' he' was i President of the Senate.

President McKinley wanted 1 him at once, so he resigned as Governor and Foster M. Voorhees became the act ing Governor. The war between Spain and the United States made him a war Governor. To become a candidate for Governor he had to resign as Senator, and Speaker Watkins became acting Gov ernor, a unique condition of affairs that perhaps no other State has experienced. The war over, then came the investiga tion of the State Industrial School for Girls, in which he took an active part. Nearing the end of his lively adminis tration these important facts are appar ent. All the principal offices in the State House are held by Republicans; ten years ago they were all Democrats. The judi ciary is of a Republican complexion; a Jersey Republican has been Vice Presi dent and died in office. A Cabinet offi cer served the nation during the period of war and returns to private life hon ored, and the State Treasury has a daily j balance of about one million dollars. In this group can b* found the recog- , nizable portraits of Henry C. Kelsey and I Benjamin F. Lee, the two survivors of that famous coterie of influential Demo crats known as the “Big Six.” These two men today are entirely estranged from Democratic politics. They ruled the State for upward of a quarter of a century. They fell out with their party when it went over to the race track lobbyists. They practically left when the money is sue divided it. Secretary Kelsey has been of recent years as much a wizard in speculation as he was in politics, and his principal occupation now is clipping cor poration coupons. Benjamin F. Lee is a well preserved old man, rich and active. He is interested in several industries and has acquired several fads, such as old prints and old books. Allan McDermott, the fearless and dashing Democratic leader of the Abbett j regime, has survived the .storms that j wrecked his party and sits in Congress, j one of the two Democratic Congressmen i of the present delegation. He has ambi- J tions in national polities, and at present he cannot be induced to be active in State politics because he has not entirely forgiven those Who made him the arch fiend when the party was on the stool J o# ennaiiifanpp i United States Senator John Kean has : a fixed face. His medallion looks as j much like him as his most recent photo graphs. He was then in training for the ,j Gubernatorial honors and was active in the affairs of the Republican party in the hope of leading them through their darkest Egypt. He ran for Governor, which canvass helped him to become Senator. General Richard A. Donnelly had just been appointed Quartermaster General when his picture was taken. He is the only Democratic State officer, and at the conclusion he had the distinction of be ing made .Major General. General E. Burd Grubb was kept in prominence because of the investigation of the ballot box frauds in Hudson county and the subsequent placing of the ballot box sttiffere In the State prison. The general has had his own troubles since then. The historical side whiskers have disappeared, and he now wears an almost white moustache and goatee. General William C. Heppenhelmer, who was the Apollo of the Democracy, is one of the attractive medallions. He was a particular protege of Governor Abbett. Since he left the State Comptroller’s office he has kept out of State polities, but he has. by the grace of Robert Davis, acquired some power in Hudson county. Handeeme Bob Adrain retired some years ago from politics. He was a protege of Olives Ross, whose political power has entirely disappeared. Adrain was more cently he has given up his bucolic pur suits end moved back to New Bruns wick to practice law. Senator Johnston Cornish from 1891 to 1901 went around a circle. He was a State Senator from Warren county. In the interval he served one term in Con gress, and during the same time he was defeated by Mahlon Pitney, who re luctantly accepted the nomination which eventually landed him on the bench. James J. Bergen, of Somerset, was given his place in the so-called galleiy of immortality because he was the speaker of the Houee of Assembly. He has kept active in politics ever since, flirting in various ways with the Guber natorial lightning, and he was moving around the State at the present time with a rod very high in the air. The suave eloquent Billy McAdoo, after a successful career in C#ngress and a residence in Virginia, is back in the State living in Orange, resisting call after call to duty to lead his party, but he abjures politics for a profitable profession. Ex Senator Key6, of Somerset, keeps active, but it is not certain just what is his ambition. Senator Henry D. Winton, who in 1891 was Senator ‘McPherson’s lieuten ant, is not heard of in State politics. He was at the head of the Gold Democratic Committee. He confines his political In terest to Bergen and to his newspaper. Fred Marsh, who was Foster Voorhees's political companion, made a record in the Senate and gave promise of great useful ness to his party. Hte last office, as prosecutor of Union, was apparently too much for him. He became careless. He is now in New York, hoping to come back to Jersey some day to retrieve his broken fortunes. There is' one portrait of interest and that is E. O. Chapman, one time the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, an office he acquired after a successful career as an Assemblyman and political leader in Hudson. He has entirely dropped out of sight. When he was forced to relin quish the office because of a change in politics, he tried many ways to make a living. He was not on good terms with his party, so he turned hie talents to writing stories on African travels, and produced many readable book*, although he hnd. nnt heen there. Two familiar faces are those of Colonel John J. Toffey and Major E. J. Ander son. The former was the Republican Treasurer for several terms and after ward State Comptroller for a long period. These two men for a while cast their lots together and landed in charge of the Ellis Island restaurants for emigrants. Colonel Toffey again became Sheriff of, Hudson and Major Anderson landed in a pleasant berth as Supervisor of the State Prison. Colonel Toffey is to all ap pearances a young man, but Major An derson shows many infirmities. He has dropped out of State politics and takes a nominal interest In the affairs of the Re publican party of Somerset. He succeed ed Mayor Seymour, of Newark, as the State Prison Supervisor. Major Anderson has been in the employ of the State for forty-one years, beginning in 1860, with several years omissions. He is the oldest State employe. He is now 71 years of age. John Gardner is one of the faces of the group that the eye first catche's, because of the long Logan like hair. He is now in Congress, where he has made a rec ord. He has a fair chance of continuing In Congress as long as he wants, provid ing some Gubernatorial ‘lightning does not strike him. There is a youthful looking picture of Supreme Court Justice Garri son of Camden, the youngest man ever put on the Supreme Court bench. Gov ernor Green admired him as Judge Advo cate General and named him to be Joel Parker’s successor, and he has made a strong Judge. General W. Bird Spencer, of rifle practice fame, has his eye turned .toward Mayor John Rankin of Elizabeth. Subsequent history develops Rankin In the General's shoes as a member of the State Board of Assessors.

Young, who is accredited with the same ambition, was probably nearer to it ten years ago than he is now. Judging by the Newarkers scattered j around the plate, the place was a regular incubator for Jersey notables. There is the pontrait of Senator Smith, City Clerk Connelly, who has since learned to talk Japanese by reason of his consulship to i Japan. Bishop Starkey survives Bishop the Court of Errors and Appeals, and he just beginning his career as the Judge of the oCurt of Errors and Appeals, and he still reluctantly holds the office. Senator Michael Barrett was getting his first les sons in Senatorial courtesy, and he has the 160 notables over his desk to remind him of his colleagues. Congressman Lehlbach had finished his Congressional career and has since been Sheriff. Mon signor Doane has lost none of his popu larity during the period. Dr. H. C. H. j Herold saw things come his way and he ; has now a Federal office. Samuel Ka lisoh has had a taste of political life in his recent Senatorial fight. Reuben Trier had a lively career in the House of As sembly. Cortlandt Parker is still active and he was considered almost ready to re tire then. Thomas A. Edison was then the most . distinguished of the Jerseymen and his ; wizard like powers have not diminished j There are also pictures of Edward Wes- I ton, Edward Wetback and Edward Bmal- | ley. Rev. Everard Kempshall gained j fame for his Citizens’ League that as sisted materially in the overturning of I tile race track power. He saw the con- | summation of his efforts when the An- ; ti-Gambling Amendment was placed in ] the State Constitution by a vote of the ! people. Samuel H. Grey was ten years ago an acknowledged constitutional lawyer. He was picked out for the Attorney General, notwithstanding his declaration that no never wanted public office. Senator Geo. T. Cranmer of Ocean, has fallen into a berth for life, that-of Clerk of the Dis trict Court. Lewis A. Thompson of Som erset, has been State Senator, graduated into Clerk of Chancery,and has gone back to Somerset to demonstrate that he is still a Republican leader, notwithstanding the claims of Senator Reed. Congress man caiimus is now a piain prison in spector. William H. Corbin gained a wide reputation as the prosecuting attorney u: the Voorhees investigation. Last, out not least, is Dennis McLaugh lin, the leader of the Hudson Democratic working force, backed by the wealth he received from the notorious Guttenberg race track. He instigated the race track fight in the State; he soon lost his power in Hudson; he retired to private life and is rarely heard’ from. WAITED. GIRLS WANTED — CAN MAKS GOOD wages. 104 First street.
