LB ST EDITION, ONE CENT LAST EDITION. JERSEY CITY, TUESDAY. SEPTEMBER 10. 1901. ) LAST EDITION. ONE CENT LAST EDITION, a VOL XIIL-NO. 3776 PRICE ONE CENT. THE GREAT DAY Orders for the Outing -of the Davis Association Issued. HOW THE LINE IS FORMED Forty-two Hundred Hats for Paraders Already Given Away. Everything is in readiness for the great outing of the Robert Davie Association j tomorrow. It will be the greatest demon- | stration ever made by the organization. The estimate of 5.000 participants made by optimistic members, -which was looked upon as a boastful tigure by some, is now ! regarded as too email an estimate. Up to j noon today out of 350 dozen, or 4,200, hats and badges only a small bunch of extra ordinarily large and extraordinarily small sizes remained and this with the principal afternoon and night still ahead of the committee in charge of their disposition. Members of the committee are scouring the city and New York for a new supply of the same kind of hats, and Whitehead, Hoag & Co. of Newark have been obliged to run overtime and employ extra hands to furnish enough badges. The morning and night parades will be the largest ever seen in this city. They will also be as imposing. The eight com panies (240 men) of the Robert Davis Pioneer Corps, which will head the parade, have been uniformed and will to morrow make their first appearance. Their uniforms are of a costly and showy military pattern. Every man in the corps is over six feet in height and each will wear a tall shako that will make him look seven feet high. They will be conveyed to and from the grove by the steamer Mohawk. The association proper will be accommodated on the steamer Grand Republic. At night there will be a brilliant illum ination, and some great and pleasant sur prises in this connection may be looked for.

FOUR BRIGHT SWORDS, Davis Pioneer Corps Has an Evening of Presenta tions. The Robert Davis Pioneer Corps had a "big time at a social session held at the Corps' Armory, No. 51 Newark avenue, last night. Including the guests there were about five hundred persons present. The object of the session was to show the social side—to unite the boys in good fellowship, and. in the language of John D. Gorman, "to teach them to live, pros per and become one and inseparable un der the banner of Democracy.” There were four sword presentations. Colonel Mortimer J. Gleason of the Corps was presented with one as a tribute from the members. Colonel Robert Smith, president of the Davis Association, made the presentation speech, in which he dwelt upon the soldierly qualities Colonel I Gleason possessed and pictured in glow ing terms the future of the Corps. The presentation was a surprise, and as soon as Colonel Gleason recovered he j warmly thanked the Corps and said it i would ever be his aim and ambition to make the Corps a .credit to his party. He said he felt confident that the boys would perform their duty and make the form ing of such a corps an accomplished fact, one that would reflect credit upon them selves and the standard bearer. ’ Lieutenant Colonel James J. Kelly was next presented with a sword on behalf of his colleagues in the Board of Free holders. Director Michael B. Holmes, of the Board of Freeholders, made the pres entation speech. He eulogized the recipi ent as a friend and as one worthy of having such an honor conferred Upon him. Lieutenant Colonel Kelly briefly but warmly thanked the other members of the Board of Freeholders. He said it would be the aim of his life to prove worthy of the honor and of the confidence reposed in him. As long as he lived, he said, he would always cherish the gift as a memento of the proudest moment of his life. The next sword presentation was to Ma jor Frederick Steigleiter. The sword was a tribute from his friends in Hoboken and was presented by Adolph Lankerlng. Mr. Lankering said he wanted the mem bers to know that Hoboken was as heart ily enthusiastic In the development of “this military project" as were the Demo crats of any other section of the county; that It recognized its worth and effective ness in the coming campaign and on be half of the people of Hoboken the sword was given to their representative as em blematic of the esteem in which he is held by them and with a wish that the success of the Robert Davis Pioneer Corps would be such as to gladden the hearts not only of the people of Hobo ken but of the county. 'Major Steigleiter responded in a short but eloquent speech of thanks. Regimental Adjutant James F. McKee was the next recipient. He was presented with a sword by John D. Gorman on be half of his friends in Greenville. In pre senting this sword Mr. Gorman said he would take advantage of the occasion “to thank the members of the corps for the time and labor they had devoted to pre pare and perfect the organization for a vigorous, aggressive, and, he trusted, a winning campaign under the matchless leadership of Robert Davis." In calling Adjutant McKee to the plat form he said it was a genuine pleasure to say to him that his friends had patiently waited for this moment to pre sent to him a substantial. token of their admiration. “This beautiful sword,” he said, “though silent, speaks more elo quently than words of their esteem and on behalf of the Robert Davis Pioneer Corps I extend to you congratulations for this well deserved honor.” Adjutant (McKee warmly and eloquently thanked the donors. All the speeches were applauded. Re freshments were served. Humorist R. C. Duncan, of New York, entertained the corps and its guests with humorous songs and stories. Roger O'Brien, the sweet tenor of the corps, sang a number of songs. Others who sang were James Hogan and R. C. Long. The Washington Band from the Eighth ward, through the courtesy of Register James C. Clark, ren-j dered patriotic selections. POLICE, ATTENTION Kept the Bootblacks From Making Nuisances of Themselves. The bootblacks along Montgomery street and Exchange place, from Greene street to the ferry, have pestered pedestrians for weeks. .They shout their trade into the ears of all and in a number of in stances actually take hold of those who pass and attempt to push them into chairs, and compel them to have their shoes polished. The police should put a stop to the nuisance. At the corner of Greene and Montgom ery streets, in front of the saloon of T. Klinke, two husky fellows stand, brooms in hand, crying "shine” into the ear of each man who passes and thrusting the brooms into his face. They frequently grasp the arm of a possible victim and detain him until he most positively re fuses to have a shine. On the opposite side of the street in front of the Pennsylvania House a brawny bootblack uses similar methods. Two youths who conduct a stand in front of the saloon of Alex. Petrie, next' to the Pennsylvania House try to out do him. In front of the saloon formerly occupied by Archie Crossman at the corner of Hudson and Montgomery streets, but now owned by McMullin & McDonough, another knight of the brush holds forth. He is strong of lung and full of deter mination that no business shall escape him no matter what methods are neces sary to secure willing or unwilling patron age. Two young Italians make nuisance of themselves crying “shine” and blocking the way of all who wish to pass in front of Basford & Glenn's Imperial Hotel, next the First National Bank, at Ex change place and Hudson street. Next door to Basford & Glenn’s at McArdle's saloon two other young men are actively engaged from morning to night making themselves unendurable. The police should be more careful of the comfort of the citizens and prevent them from being subjected to such treatment. Men rushing for trains and ferryboats have some rights to protection and should not be hampered in catching trains and boats. KELLER NOT AT HOME The Rev. John Keller, who resumed charge of his church Sunday without first answering the charges of Mrs. Barker, left Arlington yesterday and will not re turn until the latter part of the week. At the house where he lives all information as to where he has gone was refused. In the mean time Barker's friends are busy perfecting arrangements for the proposed second mass-meeting. A friend of the clergyman said last night that Barker’s friends could do as .hey pleased;. Mr. Keller would pay no atteri tion to them. The case, It is understood, is in the hands of Bishop Thomas A. Starkey, who will decide what course the rector shall pursue. SYMPATHY FOR M’KINLEY Retail Liquor Dealers Pass Resolu tions of Sympathy. At the annual meeting of the State offi cers and Executive Committee of the Re tail Liquor Dealers’ Protective League of New Jersey, held In this city on Monday, September 9, 1901, the following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopt ed:— Whereas, The Hon. William Mc Kinley, beloved President of the United States, who, in his Christian charity, has proved himself an American in every walk of life, worth of emulation, was stricken down by the hand of a dastardly assassin while on a mission of peace and good will and assisting in the development and progress of American enterprise, in such an ab horrent manner as to exact the sym pathy of the whole civilized world; therefore be it Resolved, That we hereby register our sympathy towards him and his family, and our condemnation and un qualified contempt for the man and the cowardly manner in which the deed was committed.

SUNDAY BALL. _ I Justice Collins Says the Law Must Be Enforced. CHARGE TO THE GRAND JURY Few Cases Waiting to Come Before the Inquest The usul floral offerings adorned the desks of Judges Blair and Nevius at the opening of the September term of court this morning. The desk of Justice Collins was not decorated as he had requested it should not be. It was after eleven o’clock when the Grand Jury, headed by Sheriff Carl Ruempler and Foreman Charles S. Furst, filed into court. The charge delivered by the Supreme Court Justice was unusually, brief and devoid of sensation. The open ing paragraph was inspired by the recent attempted assassination of the President, otherwise it was entirely routine. The shooting of two youths by railroad watchmen was referred to, as was the accidental shooting of the youth at the Marion Rifle Range. Two' cases of chil dren killed in trolley accidents were touched on, as was Sunday baseball play ing. Druggist John Kempel, of Summit ave nue, Jersey City Heights, was excused as the twenty-fourth juror, and the ethers were sworn in by Clerk Joseph O'Mara. The Court’s charge was as follows:— Gentlemen of the Grand Jury—We are all glad as we gather to do our part in the administration of civil government that the heinous attack which seems to have been Intended to strike at its very root has failed of complete accomplish ment. Prevention of like occurrences is a problem for wise statesmanship. It is very satisfactory that in this county, after the long interval since our last session, the Court, on reconvening, finds so little that is serious in alleged breach of the law awaiting your investi gation. There are but twenty persons in jail and most of the offenses charged are not grave. These cases should first re ceive your attention. There are six charges involving homicide to be consid ered. Some of them merit careful inves tigation as to whether the offense doe3 not arise to that of murder; in the others the indictment should not be for anything more than manslaughter. In two of the cases railroad employes shot at and killed trespassers. In another case a boy of eleven years Of age is said to have forced a younger companion, who could not swim, into the water, where he drowned. The youth of the accused raises a pre sumption in his favor, but the case, like the first two mentioned, should be care fully examined. In two cases children on the public street were run down, one by a trolley car and the other by a truck. Negligence only is alleged. As to the case of the trolley car, and probably the only subject for Inquiry, is as to its rate of speed. The last case seems to have been pure accident, but no homicide by shoot ing should be lightly passed by. There should always be adequate Investigation. The deceased was attending the targets of the Marion Rifle Range and it would seem that' by his own carelessness that put himself in danger. As I have had frequent occasion to say to grand jurors the chief cause of com plaint, of the law-abiding citizens of our county, Is as to vice and disorder rather than outbreaking of crime. Misconduct, punishable by our laws is, in some sec tions of the county, quite common. There is a growing disregard of the law as to the proper observance of Sunday as a day of rest, particularly in the northern part of the county. Ball playing for gain is permitted, sometimes in populous neighborhoods, to the annoyance of those attending divine worship. Disorderly gatherings of this character constitute what the law denominates a common nuisance and renders those responsible for them liable to indictment. The Court regret6 to say that a disposition to in troduce prize fighting here has been mani fested. The police of Hoboken only re cently were called on to stop such an en counter, and we are glad to say did stop it The local authorities everywhere should be prompt to prevent these illegal practices. They grow chiefly by the ne glect of those whose duty it is to observe and check them. Prevention is better than punishment. Gambling seems to be an inveterate evil requiring constant vigilance for its sup pression. 'Policy playing is openly charged by the public press to be practiced in Ho boken, and it may be so elsewhere. Gambling by means of slot machines has not been wholly suppressed. Complaints of violation of the law in these matters should receive prompt attention. If the local authorities and grand juries will both be vigilant and rigorous there ought to be no possibility of the continuance of these offenses. And so with pool selling on horse races. Our statute makes even a single transaction of that sort, or the keeping of a place where others may re sort for that purpose, indictable. Another subject demands attention, that is the revival of swindling by pretence of selling counterfeit money, popularly (■tvipfi erreen goods. No sympathy need be wlsfed on the victims. But the pub lic welfare demands that such a demoral izing business be stopped. It is conducted largely by means of the telegraph. The companies claim that because the statute makes the secrecy of the messages in violable they are beyond the reach of the law in efforts to detect and punish the crime This is not so. The statute re lates to divulging to Private persons the contents of messages. The telegraph no more than the mail can be used to break the law. Another statute makes it crim inal for any telephone or telegraph com pany. or any person engaged in the busi ness to knowingly transmit any communi cation that will further or promote any unlawful pursuit or illegal practice. Com plaints have been made against certain individuals under this statute and they will regularly come before you. In conclusion the Court will rely upon vour faithful inquiry into all violations of law. The fact that any case may or mav not have been considered by a previ is Grand Jury does not concern you. ou are to consider it upon its merits i it is presented before you. Most of 'you are well known to the ourt and favorably known, and we ust that confidence is mutual between i The Court has its duty, namely, to jelare the law, and the Grand Jury has s duty, namely, to investigate the facts. A few words as to the orderly course ’ procedure. The normal way for a rand Jurv to dispose of its business is i specific instruction, or on matters laid .fore it bv the Court or public prosecu ;r The Grand Jury should meet when le Court meets, and should designate a ifficient tme for the transaction of jsiness; be expeditious, and make short liournments, and when the business of ie term, as presented to it, is over, the rand Jury should apply for discharge, ases prepared by the Prosecutor should 3t be laid over, but should be taken up \ the dav when the witnesses are sub nenaed, and after bills are found they lould not be reconsidered, but should be romptly presented. The Prosecutor of ■h Pleas is your legal adviser, subject i the instructions of the Court in cases ' doubt and difficulty. The Prosecutor sen titled to be present during the tak tg of evidence. In cases of doubt on mr part, as to the propriety of finding i indictment upon evidence deemed suf -ient by the Prosecutor, the Court re vests that, before ignoring a bill, you ill applv to the Court through your ireman for instructions on the subject. Is the dutv of the Court to declare the w to you. Advice on legal subjects can: Dt lawfully be given to a Grand*Jury ccept by the Prosecutor and the Court. re shall always be at your service, and lould any matter arise that needs a rectal presentation you will be notified. 1’KIILEY BETTER Unless Complications Arise His Recovery Will Be Speedy. A dispatch from Buffalo says:—The fol lowing bulletin was issued by the Presi dent’s physicians at nine o’clock this morning:— “The President’s condition this morning is eminently satisfactory to his physi cians. If no complications arise, a rapid convalescence may be expected. Pulse, 104; temperature, 99.8; respiration, 26. This temperature is taken by mouth and should be read about one degree higher by rectum. “P. M. Rixey, Roswell Park, Eugene Wasdln, M. D. Mann, Herman Mynter, Chas. McBurney.” The following bulletin was issued by the President's physicians at 5.20 o’clock this ’morning:— "The President has passed the most comfortable night since the attempt on his life. Pulse, 118; temperature, 100.4; respiration, 28. “P. M. Rixey, Roswell Parke.” The Rev. Dr. Jacob Cooper, Vice Presi dent of Rutgers College, yesterday sent the following letter to the proprietor of the New York “Journal":— “Sir—While the world stands aghast at the horror recently enacted at Buffalo, it looks beyond the weak miscreant who fired the shot at our noble President. It sees in you and those like you, the lead ers of a reckless press, the forces which make such an act possible. Behind the much abused license of printing you have for years been uttering, both by word , and by picture, that which you knew to be lies of the most damnable blackness, from the vantage ground of your (cow ard’s) fort. This constant hell broth of vituperation and lies, spewed out all over the land, has done its legitimate work. “It has incited weak men, like this ig norant and fanatical Polish anarchist, to do a deed in which you, the real assassin, gloat in your immortal soul, but from which in your craven terror you crouch like a frightened hare. “Why don’t you, if what you have been saying for years be true, repeat it now? If false, why do you not have the manli ness to admit that all your utterances about the President and Vice President were conscious, premeditated lies? All good men and women in this nation de nounce you and your like as THE REAL ASSASSIN WHO FIRED THE SHOT. I denounced you from the pulpit yester day and shall do so, supplementing your own conscience w’ith the testimony that you, to the full extent of your ability, are the REAL ASSASSIN OF PRESI DENT mcktnley. “Carry with yourself, day and night everywhere, while you curse the earth with your presence, the consciousness that every honorable and virtuous man and woman in our land that has had the opportunity to know the facts holds you and your like responsible for this awful horror, and loathe you, not to the extent your conduct deserves, but to the reach of their ability. (Signed) “JACOB COOPER, “Professor.” STARVED JY CHOICE Halbersen Says His Daugh ter Refused to Eat. Gustave Halbersen, of No. 45 Sussex' street, who was arrested at hie home last j Saturday night on a charge of failing to support his family, was released on parole i this morning by Police Justice Hoos in the First Criminal Court. Halbersen was arrested because his eighteen-year-old daughter, 'Martha, was found in the house suffering from lack of food. Neighbors said that she had been starved and Poor master Hewitt after investigation had the father arrested. The girl was removed to ' the- hospital. The father this morning told Judge Hoos that he always supported his family to the best of his ability, but that the girl had constantly refused to eat. He said that about two years ago while employed in a factory, she received a severe shock and became mentally irresponsible. He denied that the girl had been given liquor, though the physicians at the City Hos pital say that there are symptoms of alcoholism. The girl’s condition this morning was unchanged. She would take nourishment only when forced to and then only in small quantities. There is little hope of her recovering her reason. The family moved into the house a year; ago. They were regarded as somewhat | mysterious persons. Neighbors often ; heard screams and were puzzled. Finally | a complaint was lodged with the police and Saturday night the house was en tered. The girl was found in a wretched condition and the father was drunk. The girl was sent to the City Hospital and the father was arrested. Mrs. Halbersen denied that her hus band had failed to support his family and said that since the girl suffered the 1 shock she had refused food and refused to leave the house. PUMMELLED HIS BOARDER Luther Gassard, who keeps a boarding house at No. 330 River street, Hoboken, quarrelled with Ludwig Reydeler, one ol' his boarders, last night, because he boarder was delinquent in paying his board bill.

He was removed to St. Marv’s Hospital. Gassard and Mul ler were locked up. They were remanded this morning by Recorder Stanton uniil Reydeler should be able to appear against 1 mem. IDE SLATE.

The summer is hard enough to bear but with additional hot air generated by the old fashioned cook-stove, the atmosphere of the kitchen becomes unendurable.

HOBOKEN. 99 BERGENLINE AV., T’N OF UNION. NO ANARCHY. School Directors Believe in Teaching Children Its Dangers, MR. LEWIS’S PLAN FAVORED John Ward Says Make Them Learn the Constitu* tion. The remark made by Director Lewis of the Board of Education that in order to wipe out anarchy the children in the pub lic schools should be taught the dangers of anarchy, as told exclusively in yester day's “News,” has created much com ment. All the members of the Board of Education agree with Mr. Lewis, but some hold that this is already being done. . Superintendent of Schools Henry Sny- j der, when seen this morning, said he i agreed with Mr. Lewis. “But,” continued he, “that is just what j we are doing.” "How?” was asked. “Why,” responded Mr. Snyder, “in the teaching of history, morals and good gov ernment. I don’t think you will find many anarchists among our public school graduates.” Mr. John H. Ward, of the Board of Di rectors, thought the idea splendid and worthy of agitation. “It is just like Mr. Lewis,” he said, “so original. I thoroughly agree with ‘The News’s’ editorial. I would introduce more of the spirit of good government into the schools. I am afraid the spirit of anarchy, the desire not to be governed, is a little natural with all of us. You can even see it in the teachers when they try to undermine their superintendent. “How would you advocate teaching the children?” was asked. “That is a pretty deep question,” re plied Mr. Ward. “But I should think by a thorough knowledge of the constitution. I would take the constitution section by section and have it instilled into the chil dren until they knew it by heart from beginning to end. I should make it more a part of the daily exercises. I should have them learn it as it stands. Then I should have them taught the United States motto, ‘In God we trust,’ and made to thoroughly understand it.” Mr. Ward seemed to think that while there was patriotism in plenty in the schools, half the children did not know or did not realize what it was all about. They were great followers, he said, and needed thorough instruction in the whys and wherefores of everything. While they prepared thoroughly and made a great fuss over the Fourth of July, it wTas just as much from a spirit of enthusiasm as patriotism. In the celebration they lost sight of the cause. Mr. Tracey was next seen. He also agreed with Mr. Lewis He had not thought much on the subject, he said, and was not prepared to discuss the mat ter, but he did not know of any public school graduates who were anarchists. “I think,” said he, “our boys and girls are pretty good Americans. We have a great many Italians down here in the Fifth Ward and they all seem to be good citizens. I don't believe there are more than twenty socialist votes in the whole of the Fifth Ward.” HOBOKEN SCHOOLS OVERCROWDED Between 250 and 300 school children were turned away at the opening of the public schools in Hoboken yesterday owing to lack of room. All the schools are over crowded, the crush being most severe at schools Nos. 3 and 4. It is probable that the school board will make some pro vision for the surplus of children at its next meeting TO REPAIR SCHOOL NO. 2. Board of Education Decides to Make Building Safe as Temporary Shelter. No. 2 School is to be repaired for tem porary occupation until a new No. 2 School is built. A special meeting of the Finance Board was to have been held at five o’clock yes ’ terday afternoon to receive the report of I the committee appointed by that Board j to inspect the -old school building, but I there was no quorum. The report of that Board’s Committee of Inspection, pub lished in yesterday’s “News,” did not con demn the building, as did that of the committee of the Board of Education. The Board of Education held a special session in committee room late in the afternoon. No open meeting was held. Finance Commissioners Ringle and Mid lige conferred with the school directors, who in committee room adopted the fol lowing resolution, offered by Director John H. Ward, Committeeman for No. 2 School:— Resolved, In accordance with the suggestion of the members of the Board of Finance that the supervis ing architect of this Board be directed to procure estimates for the tearing down and disposal of the plaster ceil ings. for the laying of a new roof and for girders and posts where necessary in School No. 2, in order that the building may be fit for occupancy until the erection of a new School No. 2. Resolved. That the specifications be drawn with a view to the temporary character of the work and that this work called for be as economical as is consistent with the safety of the build ing. Mayor Hoos, this morning, discussing the Board of Education’s action, yester day, with reference to No. 2 School, saidt “It cannot be rebuilt .any too soon. I have no axes to grind.” Superintendent of Schools Snyder this morning said that the pupils of No. 2 School will have to remain out for a month at least, while the building is be ing repaired. It is estimated that the repairs will cost about $1,000. Finance Commissioner Midlige says the money will be immediately appropriated by the Board of Finance.
