Criticism and Incitement tc Crime
Th« Republican organs not content with
denouncing the assassination doctrinea of
William R. Hearst, as exploited In his
infamous newspapers, are endeavoring to
establish in the public mind the doctrine
that the President is above criticism, and
that all severe comment on the policies
of himself and his government and his
party are treasonable and incendiary and
open to classification as incitements to
murder and revolt.
This la, of course, a monstrous abuse of
the situation. It is an attempt to abuse
the excited feelings of the public in a
manner which would soon be subversive
of all true popular government. There is
no divinity hedging a President. Our
chief magistrate is one of the people, he
is the servant of the people, and his per
sonal and political character as well as all
his acta and designs are public property
while he remains in office. They may,
with perfect propriety, be criticized, cen
sured, condemned, even in the superlative
degree, in any way that the honest judg
ment of any individual may prompt.
The distinction between this and the
crime of the ‘•Journal'' is easily perceived.
To point out malfeasance or corruption
on the part of the President and his en
tourage may be a high duty if it be
coupled with an appeal to the people to
remedy it by peaceful and constitutional
means. The crime consists in coupling
such criticism or condemnation with
glorification of assassins and assassina
tion, the Jacquerie, the rebellion of Jack
Cade and other historical convulsions in
which the barbarous rage and uncon
trolled lust of revenge on the part of the
lowest orders of the people broke over
all the barriers of law and civilization.
We are of course making no personal
allusions to Mr. McKinley here; t*he time
when a man is fighting with death is
not the time that we choose to attack
him. But we protest against any attempt
being made to set the President, who
ever he may be, upon a pedestal above
the reach of his fellow citizens and their
mouthpieces, the newspapers. We shall
never allow ourselves to be trammelled
or limited in our right of criticism on
proper occasions, and so long as we limit
ourselves to demanding constitutional
remedies for the wrongs and abuses
which we indicate.
Hypodarmle Tippling:.
Perhaps the most extraordinary exhi
bition of the "temperance” mania that
has yet come to public notice, was the ,
speech of a Methodist clergyman in New
York, on Monday, protesting because
hypodermic injections of whiskey were
used to keep up President McKinley's
strength. The more or leas reverend
gentleman evidently thought it was better
the President should die than that he
should thus set a bad example in the way
of tippling to the people at large. We
would like to have the cranial measure
ments of this teacher of wisdom and
virtue. W’e should think they would be
of considerable aoologieal interest.
The Rev. Dr. Buckley showed rather
more discretion. He opposed any denun
ciation of the President and his doctors.
He made the somewhat naive remark that
the use of alcohol in the President’s case
merely proved that "some people still con
sidered It useful.” The expression “some
people” will cause a smile, especially as
another speaker boasted of the fact that
th§?e are a million total abstainers in the
United States. As the entire population
is abput ^000,000, the "some people” of
Dr. Buckley would fill a good Bleed house.
One of the shining lights of this occa
sion compared the liquor traffic to slavery.
He expressed the somewhat exaggerated
fear that the rum power would again
drench the country in blood as the slave
power did; Here again Dr. Buckley inter
jected some glimmerings of common sense
Into the discussion. He said he did not
think the liquor men desired bloodshed.
He thought the tralfic would only be sup
pretecd when every man, woman and child j
was educated up to a hatred of rum. It
would seem as if he might have here con
founded the means and the end. His
hearers, however, wasted no thought on
fine distinctions. They denounced his re- ]
marks In axtenao as the most malignant
attack pn,ttie total abstinence cause that
had ever been made.
Naw Bait for Maakor.
The people of 'Union county seem to be
determined to get a whack at Captain j
Kills Meeker, who lent hia name to the
anti-spring election infamy. At first, they
proposed ta do this by having him noml
nated for Mayor of Elizabeth; hut the
wily Ellis perceived the inwardness of
their little plot at once and absolutely
refused to even look at the bait. Now
they are tempting him with' a more lu
crative position. They* are dangling the
Sheriff's office of Union bounty before hie
eyes. They are jollying him along by
telling him that no office within the gift
of the party would over-reward him for
the great services he hats rendered the
Republican cause, and that he has earned
the office by his indefatigable work in the
Legislature. It is therefore proposed that
when the Union county Republicans and
the visiting statesmen and workers from
various parts of the State are at work
demolishing the good things which go to
make up a clambake at Westfield, a week
from Saturday, a boom shall be launched
for Ellis to start him on the way to the
Shrievalty nomination.
It remains to be seen whether Ellis will
let this flattering offer turn his head. No
one knows better than he how many of
the Republican braves are lying in am
bush ready to take his political scalp at
the first opportunity,*and those who know
him do not believe that he will ever ex
pose himself to the danger in which his
“friends" are trying to thrust him.
Union county politics are decidedly lively
this year. They may be reckoned upon
to keep the State amused from now to the
middle of November.
Th* Memory of Ooremor Nowell.
What has become of the project to
erect, on some spot alone the New Jersey
sea coast, a monument to perpetuate the
memory of ex-Governor William A. New
ell and commemorate the good work
which he did for the cause of humanity
in the establishment of the Life Saving
Corps? This plan to honor a worthy and
deserving citizen should not be dropped
from sight or allowed to die from inani
tion. The proper organization to take
charge of the matter is the State itself,
which Governor Newell served so long
and faithfully, and to which he brought
honor and renown. No one would con
demn the Legislature if it made an ap
propriation to provide for the erection of
the monument. There is plenty of money
in the State treasury for the purpose,
and the surplus public funds could be put
to no better use than that of honoring a
man who has honored the Commonwealth.
The educational effect on new generations
would more than compensate the outlay.
If there is a desire expressed by the
public at large to contribute to the New
ell memorial, the Legislature could easily
provide a means for popular subscrip
tions. But, whatever plan is adopted, the
project should not be allowed to fail, but'
should be kept alive until a suitable me
morial is erected in the State to ex-Gov
ernor Newell’s memory.

was 207,947, or 88 per cent, of the average
enrollment, an increase of 4,944'over last
The number of teachers employed was
7,012, an increase of 323. The local boards
of education are demanding a higher
standard of scholarship in the teaching
force,, and there is, consequently, a con
stant Increase in the number of teachers
holding the higher grades of certificates.
The number holding State certificates is
1,758, an increase of 181; the number hold
ing first grade county certificates is 971, an
increase of 61. and the number holding
third-grade county certificates, the lowest
issued, is 393, a decrease of 158. The num
ber of teachers who are graduates of
Normal Schools is 1,798, an increase of
144, and the number who are college grad
uates is 409, an Increase of 52.
There was an increase of $232,178.10 in
the amount expended for teachers' sal
aries, an increase of $24,487.23 in the
amount expended for building and repair
ing, and an increase of $7,250.23 in the
amount expended for manual training.
The average annual salary paid to male
teachers increased $4.20 and to female
teachers $19.50.

lating to the schools in the various muni
cipalities of the State. Those of the Hud

Superintendent Snyder Has
a Hard Time With Irate
Parebts and Tele
phone Calls.
It was a busy day yesterday for Henry
Snyder, Superintendent of Schools. There
was an ever increasing line of irate
parents and helpless children insisting
upon seeing Mr. Snyder. There was cause
for wonder as to how the Superintendent
of Schools kept his wits, not to mention
temper. The outer office was packed
with all sorts and conditions of parents
and children, each writh some kind of
complaint. The stenographer had not
even room to manipulate the typewriter.
The office was like the proverbial stage
coach—always room for one more—and
every time the door leading into the hall
opened the crowd moved up a little closer
to make room for the newcomer.
Superintendent Snyder inwardly groan
ed at every opening of that door. He saw
his luncheon vanish in the shuffle. One
by one he invited the complainants into
his sanctum.
A Xanthippish woman would enter,
dragging by the hand a small boy, and,
scarcely waiting to be seated or even
asked her errand, would begin:—
“This here boy ought to be two classes
higher, and 1 want him put there.”
"What grade is he in?”
"I don’t know, but he is two classes
back of where he ought to be. That there
teacher has a grudge against him, and—”
“Ting-a-ling-a-ling!” goes the tele
“Mr. Snyder, some one wants you,” an
nounces the stenographer.
Mr. Snyder excuses himself.
“Yes, yes. Well, you can’t do it; you
must treat them both alike. Oh, no;
good bye.”
Back in his sanctum, he eventually gets
rid ot the irate parent and prepares tor
the next.
“Mr. Snyder, I want to know why my
little girl can’t go back to No. 12? She
has been going there for the last three
years and just because we have moved
she has to go to No. 14. It’s an outrage.”
Mr. Snyder then explains that the fam
ily is living out of the district and that
if that particular child was permitted to
continue attending her old school the
same privilege would have to be extended
to all. In the midst of this he is again
interrupted by the telephone.
“Oh, good morning. Can't see you to
day. Come tomorrow. I’m awfully busy
just now.”
The next interview is with another par
ent, a man, who only wants to get his
five children into a certain school and is
quickly disposed of. Then some teacher
or principal calls Mr. Snyder up on some
thing about half day classes.
He again darts into his sanctum to see
his sixth or seventh parent with a griev
ance, and no noticeable decrease in the
sardine-packed office outside. It was
nearly one o’clock when Mr. Snyder at
last found himself alone.
"Guess I'll get some luncheon,” said he,
grabbing his hat and darting out just in
time to hear:—
“Is Mr. Snyder in?”
But he was on the other side of his
office door and he made tracks for the

tingent on President*! Condition.
President R. C. Jenkinson, of the Pan

ceived at Newark a telegram yesterday
from Director General Buchanan of the

of President McKinley that his condition
shall not be allowed to Interfere with the
original arrangements for the celebration
of New Jersey Day on next Friday.
Immediately upon receipt of this tele
gram Mr. Jenkinson called up the Gov

is impossible now to complete arrange

Her Place Was Opposite Camden
Chief of Police.
[Special to "The Jersey City News.”]
CAMDEIN, Sept. 11, 1901.—A woman
counterfeiter was arrested yesterday in a
house directly opposite the home of Chief
of Police Foster. Moulds, counterfeits and
material for making coin were found in
the house. The prisoner says she is Susie
Slater and that she is thirty-six years old.
The arrest was made by Secret Service
Detective Matthew Griffin. The woman
made counterfeit dimes and quarters
from plaster of paris moulds. She also
manufactured the moulds and put the
false money into circulation with the
assistance of her eight small children.
'Many persons had complained to the
police that they had received counterfeit
money, and City Detective Painter had
been at work on the case for some time
past. He finally discovered that the bad
money was being passed by children,
and they were traced to the hduse of
Susie ^Slater.
When the house was raided only the
Slater woman and two of the children
were captured. The house was searched
from top to bottom and a number of
moulds were found hidden in a stove.
The woman was taken before United
States Commissioner Morgan. She con
fessed her guilt and was held for court.
The children were held as witnesses.
The woman’s husband, John J. Slater,
was arrested last night at Lancaster,
Pa., and taken to Camden,

"If one of New York’s big modern
hotels could be whisked to the country,
and spread out in village formation the
result would be a model proprietary town
of about 3,000 inhabitants. One-half of
these inhabitants would work, in relays,
night and day, for the comfort and en
tertainment of the other half, whose
obligation would be the payment of the
bills, which, in the aggregate, would re
present, in addition to the running ex
penses and perhaps 3200,000 a year set
aside for the proprietor’s profits, the in
terest on 315,000,000 invested in land, build
ings and furnishings. Many cities cannot
muster a tax list of 315,000,000, so that
this town would be conspicuous above all
others for wealth, and in completeness of
the details that make the material side of
life a Joy it would be unrivalled. Some
of its houses would be constructed for
one family exclusively, and others would
be arranged in single rooms and in suites.
All would he furnished in the most lux
urious fashion. In the central warehouse
of the town’s steward would be found a
greater assortment of supplies for the
cuisin than in any public market in the
world. There would be a row of cook
shops, each devoted to the preparation of
a special course, ranging from the soups
and entrees and roasts to the pastries and
coffee. There would be half a dozen big
banquet rooms and ball rooms, several
music rooms and a well appointed theatre
or two. The town would have, of course,
a telegraph office, a complete telephone
system and some means of rapid transit
to every house. Enormous boilers would
supply the heat and an electric light plant
would furniBh the illumination. There
would be an ice plant large enough to
manufacture fifty tons a day. There
would be silversmith, blacksmith and tin
smith shops, electrical repair and machine
shops, florists, hair dressing rooms for
men and women, Turkish baths, uphol
stery and furniture shops, decorators and
seamstresses, a steam laundry, a messen
frer service, a printing office, a wine cel
ar. with half a million dollars' worth of
choice vintages, and a club house with
billiard and reading rooms and'cafes. The
town would be policed day and night by
a dozen private detectives, and it would
have a ‘well trained lire department.
There would be a Bhnk, over whose coun
ters would pass millions of 'dollars each
year, and a central executive office, with
scores of clerks and bookkeepers and
auditors. The proprietor of this town
would assume all the housekeeping capes
of his 1,500 tenants, and of many of his
1,500 employes. He would provide amuse
ments and act as the court of last resort.
It would seem as if the man who was
rash enough to attempt the management
of such a town, staking his fortune on
the issue, must necesarlly fail: but as a
fair illustration it is not overdrawn. Its
parallel is found In a compact form, with
no feature missing and many added, in
the modern big hotel that has reached the
highest development la New York.”—
