Present Outlook Is Most Encouraging for the Democrats. REPUBLICANS WORRIED Apathy of Their Leaders and Enthusiasm for Seymour Cause Them Alarm. [Special to “The Jersey City News.”! TRENTON. Oct. 14, 1901.—“If the pres tnt conditions hold for a couple more weeks,” said one of the Republican lead ers in the city yesterday, “the party will have to find a Paul Revere and send him dashing through the State, calling the men to arms and warning the organiza tion of its danger. It don't look to me as though the party was more than half awake, an£ the election is only three weeks from next Tuesday. I don’t know why so many of the party workers should feel so confident of the success of thfe ticket when there is every Indication that the Democrats are in better shape to fight than thoy have been for years, and that no reliance can be placed in the hope of defections from their party over the nomi nation of Seymour against the wishes of former Senator Smith. The sooner we re alize the strength of the Democrats the better it will be for us.” That Republican seems to reflect the general sentiment of the rank and file of the party, for, while there has been some considerable show of activity on the part of the Republicans, there is an undercur rent of confidence which is likely to land them high and dry on Disappointment Is land on election night, unless they get out and counteract it with some very lively hustling or send riders to warn the party of the threatened flood. The fact mat former Senator Smith was appointed as one of the members-at-large of the new State Committee was sufficient indication that the Democrats are together, that the sores left by the State convention have been healed, and that they are prepared for vigorous effort all along the line. The appointment of Mr. Smith was ap parently at his own request, and he has indicated in letters of thanks to all those who stood by him so sturdily in the strug gle against Seymour that he means to en ter heartily into the thick of the fight and stand by those who are at the nead of the present campaign. That there are able leaders now laboring harmoniously for Democratic success there is every evi dence. and that they are being well sup plied with the reeded funds for the vig orous prosecution of their work is likewise true, so that all the elements of succe.s are present and the party is buoyed with a hope such as it has not enjoyed in many recent campaigns. At the meeting of the Essex County Democratic Committee the other night there was a love feast and such evidence of harmonious action for the welfare of the ticket as to bode no good for the Republican leaders. County Chairman James E. Nugent and Colonel E. L. Price, who had led the opposing forces in the Ktter fight at the primary polls at which the Seymour forces suffered such a rout, made up and promised to work shoulder to shoulder, forgetting all differences, for the success of the Mayor in the pres ent campaign. With the party wholly united in Essex, where Mayor Seymour is so popular, there will be one of the hottest battles on record in November. As it is evident that Essex County is the pivotal point of the battle, as it has been in so many campaigns, the result there will command more than the usual atten tion. There seems to be a marked disposition on the part of the Republicans to place the present prosperity of the country for ward as the chief Issue of the campaign, but the Democratic talkers are evidently intent upon forcing State issues upon them. There are some things in the Democratic platfortn, however, which will not be made very prominent and the dis cussion will be confined to such things as will trry weight with the mass of voters, in North Jersey they will make the most of the pollution of the Passaic River and utter failure of the Republican Legislature to take any steps to bring relief to the communities affected. The fact that Governor Voorhees declined to call an extra session of the Legislature to bring the desired relief Is pointed out as one of the blunders of the last Legisla ture, but as this subject has no interest in South Jersey it will not figure there in the campaign. One of the issues of the fight in South Jersey is the abolition of spring elec tions by the last Legislature, and that is really one of the most vital and im portant, since it affects all the large cen tres of population. Many people of both parties hold that the combination of all elections deprives many voters of the privilege of cutting loose from partisan lines and voting and working for the best interests of the municipality upon Inde pendent and local issues. This matter will have much to do with the result in Camden, where there was every evi dence last spring of a serious revolt against the Republican organization and where the desire to avoid this threatened rupture actually led to the passage of the act for the abolition of the spring elections. The Republican managers de clare that they will not suffer upon this issue, as the law was passed with the co operation of the Democrats, and that Trader Robert Davis, of Hudson county, ^ter-fopajrtily in acpprd with its provisions. Kst what figure it Wilt cut In the cam paign is one ef the unsolved problems. fThe only certain thing about It is that it will keep back the returns of the election for nobody knows how long, and make it well-nigh impossible to determine until next day who Is chosen Governor and how the Legislature stands. Unless the vote shall be overwhelmingly one way or the other.the actaul result may not be known even the*next day. From present indications, however, that Is not likely. Whoever wins is likely to have but a small majority unless something happens to turn the present tide. , The State's Republican leaders are not at all pleased with the condition of things, in Atlantic county, where th'ere ■wan ouch a bitter fight for the nomina tion for Seiyitor last week, and the turn ing down of Senator Lewis Evans Is re garded as one of the calamities of the campaign. Reports come here to the ef fect that the friend* of Evana are very sore, Indeed, over the way In which the? were beaten, and thpt there is danger of the fight going to the polls. In that event there is every reason for the belief that Atlantic will send a Democrat to the Senate for the first time In many years. It is likely that some of the State leaders will go down and endeavor to patch up some kind of a truce by which the county may bq held In line, but the effect of the Voorhees law upon the county will per haps counteract any effort they may make In that direction. A very large proportion of the Republicans of the county are directly interested in the con tinued liberal Interpretation of the State liquor laws in Atlantic City, and they will carry the weight of their influence to the polls in November. It is said on the other hand, that Councilman Edward S. Dee, nominee for Senator, represents this element, and that the defeat of Sen ator Evans was based upon ’f01* £°F the obnoxious law under which the great resoTt received such a blow last summer. The quarrel among the Republicans, Itpw ever, cannot be easily settled, and l&ere are indications of a Democratic majority for the head of the ticket In that hitherto Republican stronghold.. The Democratic County Convention will be held in Hightstown next Wednesday for the purpose of nominating candidates for Senator and three Assmblymen For mer Judge Robert S. Woodruff, of this city. Is prominently mentioned in con nection with the Senatorship. Judge Woodruff was chairman of the State Convention that nominated James D. Sey mour for Governor, and has the support of the Mercer county leaders. . I igSf Large Throng of Democrats and ^Republicans Greet Him in Newark. [Special to "The Jersey City News^,’] NEWARK, Oct. 14, 1901.—Over sixteen hundred citizens of Newark crowded into the house of the Jeffersonian Club, on West Park street, Saturday evening, shook hands with Mayor James M. Sey mour and greeted him as the next Gov ernor of New Jersey. It was a most en thusiastic crowd and composed of repre sentatives of all opinions and plainly demonstrated that the Mayor had the best element of the city with him in his fight for an honest State government. Many Republicans grasped the Mayor’s hand and assured him that. they^ would support him at the polls. The clubhouse was brilliantly lighted for the occasion and beautifully decorat ed with palms and plants. Several tables laden with refreshments were scattered about conveniently, and as it was a strictly Democratic and Informal recep tion every one helped himself. The committee in charge was composed of Charles Schneider, president of the club; George S. Aldridge. John Booder and John Sherman. These gentlemen were on hand early and did all in their power to make every one who_Called feel per fectly at home. It Was the biggest event of its kind in the political history of Newark. The committee say that over 1,600 invitations were taken up at the door and at least two hundred passed in without tickets. Mayor Seymour ex pressed much pleasure both at the size of the throng and the character of the men who came out to meet him and wish him success. The Mayor came to the clubhouse early. He walked up West Park street unattend ed and passed in at the door like any ordinary citizen. He was met at the en trance by the committee, who escorted him to the parlor on the second floor, where he took his stand between huge crayon portraits of himself and ex-Sen ator James Smith. Immediately the throng of citizens filed before the candi date and exchanged greetings with him. It was exclusively an Essex county gath ering and the Mayor knew most of them by name. Those who were strangers to him were introduced to him by members of the committee. An incident of the evening was the meeting of the Mayor and Elvin W. Crane, the Democratic candidate for Gov ernor three years ago. Previous to the convention which nominated the Mayor for Governor Mr. Crane strenuously op posed his candidacy, and the Republicans have been building high hopes on the be lief that Mr. Crane still opposes the May or. Mr. Crane took his place In the line and when he came up to the Governor heartily grasped him by the hand. The Mayor returned the grip and those pres ent gave three hearty cheers for Sey mour and Crane. James R. Nugent, chair man of the Essex Democratic • County Committee, who also worked against the Mayor’s nomination, was another of his late opponents to clasp the Mayor’s hand and assure him of his hearty support. Among the more prominent of the local Democrats present were Charles F. Herr, Judge George H. Lambert, M. J. O’Con nor, M. L. McLaughlin, William H. Brown, William C. Nicoll, Edward M. Waldron, John H. Ely, John J. Gaffney, Valentine Dimond, Louis Lewis, Dr. Em ery A. Miller, James Fisher, George Kane, John Baader, Dr. Andrew G. Vogt, Enos Runyon. Charles Cox, J. L.

Republican papers In reporting the pro ceedings of the meeting of the State Democratic Committee in this city on Sat urday insisted that by sime kind of shuffle, as they put it, eX-United States Senator Rufus Blodgett of Monmouth, General Richard A. Donnelly and James W. Banning of Mercer were shut out from the committee. t Now the plain fact is that Chairman W. B. Gourley a few days ago received letters from these gentlemen stating that because of business reasons only they re quested that they be not re-elected. All three gentlemen will, however, dp their utmost to elect James M. Seymour and laugh at the ridiculous insinuation' of disaffection. HUDSPETH TO RECORD •dilator Robert 8. Hudspeth is today writing a reply to the challenge of George B. Record, the Republican Senatorial can didate, to meet him In a series of debates on the Issues. Senator Hujjspeth refused to discuss the subject when seeii this morning on the grounds that It would be Improper for the newspapers to forestall the receipt of his reply by Mr. Record.

To one unacquainted with Eighth ward Republicanism the little ward convention held Saturday night In the clubhouse of the Eighth Ward Republican Club on Vir ginia avenue might have seemed some na tional gathering upon which rested iho fate of the nation. Mark Hanna and all his able lieutenants could not have gone through such political manoeuvering, such whispering and such hustling for votes as took place prior to the caucus. For one hour, and a half after the dele gates reached the clubhouse the button holing was kept up without intermission, and when it was announced that the mo mentous question at stake was tne selec tion of two candidates for justices of tho peace, even Sammy Dickinson’s picture in the club parlor began to smile. ’ “It’s not settled yet,” whispered a dele gate as Johnny Weastell called out to the crowo to go into caucus in the hall Up stairs. “'There’s guing to be a fight sure. ’ Fights among Eighth ward Republicans are always in order. They are not —ie exception but the rule. The efforts of Weastell and Decker to cover up the rows with pretended harmony on tne eve of election afforded amusement even among their own followers. It transpired that the row was over Fat Kenny, whose happiest dreams have bee.i centred upon the exalted office of justice of the Peace. Now Kenny belongs to the silk stocking crowd. When he posed ag a Democrat years ago he strained his vocal organs shouting about Republican cor ruption. He was not accorded the recog nition that he thought was due him so he flopped like George L. Record and Bobby Carey did. Republicans realize that their ticket has too much dead weight already in the per son of Record without putting on any more of the same breed. Besides, Kenny made himself particularly obnoxious in his fight for a license for a saloon at Virginia avenue and the Boulevard. But he was not to be called off. His delegates put up a strong fight for him at the cau cus. There were two candidates for Jus tice of the Peace to be selected and four names were presented. They were, be sides Kenny, E. A. Ransom, Jr., j. m. Brinnier and William Dey. Ransom was sure from the start, and when the caucus was over he and Brinnier had been de cided upon as the nominees. At the cau cus Kenny received .9 votes out of a total of 33 and Dey L Most of Kenny’s dele gates still stuck to him at the convention, but the fight was useless. The first vote was Ransom 33, Brinnier 28 and Kenny 5. Daniel P. Holmes was nominated for Alderman and Prank Meyer was renom inated for Constable. Each -candidate made his little speech a^ter the conven tion. Candidate for Alderman - at - Large George W. Decker, Candidate for Senator George L. Record, and Candidate for Mayor Mark Fagan came in later and Joined in the speechmaking. Mr. Record admitted that the Republi can ticket had a hard road to travel. He hinted that it would need all the assist ance that it could get. Mr. Holmes assured the delegates that he would be elected Alderman. In com menting upon the applause bestowed upon E. A. Ransom, Jr., he said that Ransom should have been the candidate for Aider man instead of Justice of the Peace. In the course of the speeehmaking every effort was made to smooth Kenny’s feelings, but with very little success. He was escorted to the platform to shake hands with Mark Fagan, but the hand shaking operation had little effect upon him. He declared that he would knife the ticket and he wanted everybody to know it. Frank H. Hall, the popular president of the Eighth Ward Club, was chairman of the convention, and Charles H. Richard son, secretary. Resolutions endorsing the State, county and city tickets of the party were unanimously adopted. ELEVENTH WARD NOMINEES The Eleventh Ward Republican conven tion was held''on Saturday night and re sulted in the nomination of John H. Koep piinger for Alderman, Henry Lurz for Constable and Henry Wirsing for justice of the Peace. Mr. Koepplinger, the A.der manic candidate, is engaged in the Jewel ry business in New York. FIRST WARD NOMINEES. The First Ward Republican Club Satur day night nominated William E. Ormeby for the office of Alderman and Thomae Devlin for that of constable.

As "The iJJews” goes to press the fall is expected at any minute of the four story brick house at Jackson avenue and Forrest street which began to crack Fri day night. The police are more vigilant than ever to avert fatalities. The big •house has assumed a most dilapidated ap pearance. The hack wall has completely parted from the main building and dropped -about four feet from the roof. The earth beneath this outer wall has also sunk. In the front a dozen big cracks are Visible. While the bricks at the curb line have not shifted the supper stories lean from two to four feet westward as the roof is reached. Spectators marvel that the building stands in its present con dition. It Is believed that today's rain Will wash away the foundations and bring the house down with a crash. ' The •adjoining frame house has been, vacated by order of the police. Thousands of people from all over the city came to look at the falling house Saturday afternoon and Sunday. The vicinity was black with people. The police were careful to keep all from getting near the danger line., The crowds remained for ■hours in the rain desiring to see the big wails topple. W. C. Clymes, the house mover, arrived with material and men to shore up the house yesterday afternoon, but it was considered too dangerous to attempt the task in the rain. The earth was settling inch by inch and this greatly increased the risk. Two large girders have been placed against the wall on Jackson avenue to prevent the wall from falling in that di rection. James Butler, the grocer, on the Forrest street corner, has had all of his windows boarded up to prevent damage. The Water Department has built a guard rail around the hydrant on Forrest street. The bursting of this in case the wall falls would cause a big loss of water. An effort rfras made to shut off the water in the house yesterday, but the connections could not be reached. The gas has been shut off and the telephone and electric wires disconnected. The he owner came over yesterday afternoon, but the police would not let him enter th house. There is likely to be considerable litiga tion growing out of the fall. of the house. It is understood that the owner has re tained counsel to prosecute the contrac tors, and that the contractors have also engaged lawyers to defend them. There is some doubt as to the depth the contrao tors have dug and also the depth of the walls of fhe condemned house. The building ordinance relating to exca vations states that those responsible for excavations ever eight feet deep shall, at their own cost, .cause the adjoining walls to be safely shored up. Moritz Kron baum, of New York, owns the falling house. John Glurz, a baker, is having the new house built. Michael Nolan, to whom the excavating was. sub-let by Van Keu ren & Sons, had all but finished his work when the rear wall of the brick house be gan to crack. He claims that he notified the owner three days before the walls be gan to' settle. This statement he made to a reporter of “The News” late Friday night _ MUNFORD’S STATEMENT Oct. 11, 1901. To the Editor of “The Jersey City News”: On your Saturday's issue you say Mr. Nolan reported to me the danger oi the building on Jackson avenue contiguous to his excavation. Mr. Nolan has never Spoken one word to me about the building up to the date of my writing this letter, nor 1 to him. Please insert my correction oi the misstatement in your next issue. Respectfully, WALTER MUNFORD, LOCKWOOD HAD HIS EXCITEMENT Patrolman Lockwood was one of the men detailed to guard the approaches to the condemned brick building at Forrest street and Jackson avenue late Saturday night. Things got quiet around midnight. He sat on a plank placed on two lime bar rels, which formed a barricade across For rest street. "This is dead slow business,” said he, swinging his night stick. “Nothing would suit me better than to have some excite ment.” Cr-r-r-aqk, bang, went the plank on which he was sitting and Lockwood went sprawling to the asphalt pavement. He was considerably Jarred. The broken plank had come down on his left heel and this made him limp about for several minutes in pain. He stood up the rest of the time and several friends laughed at his discomfiture. __ SAYS HE TORE UP HER PRAYER BOOK Mr*. Blair Wants Divorce From Hor Husband and Alleges Deserf an. William K.

How could I help it? Look at him! Isn't he a darling? Now, Judge, can you blame me?” ■Miss Maggie McCarthy, a pretty young Irish woman, of No. 222 Twelfth street, was arraigned this morning in the First Criminal Court before 'Police Justice Hoos on a charge of being a disorderly person. Policeman Thomas Moran, of the Second Precinct station, was the complainant. The girl's crime was “annoying me,” as Moran put it. “Loving you,” as the fair prisoner corrected, smiling sweetly, to the discomfiture of the officer and the hilari ous glee of the crowd that overtaxed the court room's capacity. Miss McCarthy was fined $3, and as she did not have sufficient to pay the price Judge Hoos fixed on her love, she was sent back to the cell from which she had joyously come to beam on the object of her mis placed affection. Policeman Moran only very recently donned the uniform. 'He is a young man. acknowledging twenty-five years. And he is married. Moran was on post last night on Grove street near Twelfth street. Miss McCar- ] thy came along. She had just left her sis ter’s home where she had acted in the proud capacity of godmother to her sis ter’s babe. Miss McCarthy indignantly re sented an intimation that she was under the influence of liquor at the time, but she admitted that certain intoxicating beverages were part of the refreshments attending all well regulated christenings. Weighed down with a sense of her lone liness she reached the corner of Grove and Twelfth streets. As she turned the corner she came face to face with Moran. An electric light cast its strong rays through the glittering rain drops and fell, upon the handsome face and military form of Officer Moran. He was indeed a picture to make one halt in admiration. Miss McCarthy was spellbound, with her large blue eyes focused on that handsome face and manly form. Moran politely stepped aside to allow a lady to pass. He was about to gallantly raise hia helmet but remembered in time the police regulation against politeness. Then a fair young hand held him. “Oh, what a lovely man!” said Miss McCarthy. • "Run along home now, little woman. It’s late. Change your drink,” was his answer. “What, you deny me? Oh, I love you!" Moran was undecided whether to call for help or run away. Finally he spoke: "If you don’t go away from me I'll punch you.” “Oo wouldn't ’urt oo tootsey, would o, ‘ootsey?” and the young woman tried to kiss Moran. “Assault and battery,” pronounced the policeman. “Come along.” The patrol wagon came. The driver grunted “A drunk, eh? Chuck her in. Nice night to come out after lady-bugs.” “Sergeant, she's crazy. Says she loves me. Wanted to kiss me, too. What’ll my wife say?” 'Oh, you re the real thing. Handsome ■ Tommy breakln-’ hearte. Look out fer McGill or he’ll put it all over your snlrt. Bring her back.’' The girl cried with glee when Moran led her to a cell. ‘‘Will you be with me? Oh! I don’t care. Love In acell is bet ter than no love at all. ‘I can’t tell why I love you, but I do oo oo.’ ” softly sang the girl, and she begged for “Handsome Tommy’’ to stay with her and not close “that horrid door.’’ She was very quiet all night. When she stood in the dock in the court this morning she beamed on Hand some Tommy as he took the oath to tell “the truth, the whole truth and nothing i but the truth.” Then he told of the elecirie light rays, the kiss, the arrest atod all the terribla de tails. “What have you to say?” asked Judge Hoos. “It’s true. I love him. I could not keep away from him. He’s such a handso. v j An Old and Wo'l Tried Remedy.

Twenty-five cents per bottle. man. How could I help It? Look at him. Isn't he a darling? Now, Judge, can you blame me?” When the Judge looked he saw Moran blushing like a schoolboy and mumbling something about wishing the floor would open. The crowd roared. Judge Hoos could not restore order until the woman was led to a cell. The girl took it all as a’ Joke. “You'll have to laugh later on, madam,” said Judge Hoos. “I laugh every time I see him.

Father Ter "W'oert of St. Mary’s Church yesterday announced at all the masses celebrated In Institute Hall that the old church at the corner of Erie and Second streets, which was rendered useless by the recent tornado, would be , torn down and a new edifice built at great cost of material that would make it the finest church in the diocese of New ark. Architects aTe now engaged on plans for the new church. It is to be j built on the site of the old one and is,to extend from Second street to Third street on Erie. No hint was given of the proba- : ble cost of the new church, but it is thought that Ihe figures will be very i large, as the plan is to follow the lines : on which the Cathedral in New York City i Is built, and, though Father Ter Woert did not say so yesterday, it is understood throughout the parish that Italian marble is to be used. The plans also include the construction of a rectory of marble or 'brown stone in Second street on the site of the house formerly used by the Broth ers of the Institute. This will leave a full lot vacant next to the Church on the Grove street side and no building will be placed there because it is to be kept va cant so that the church will have better light. In order that the new building may ex tend to Third street. Father Ter Woert ha3 purchased the lot at the corner of Third and Erie streets from Alderman Howeth at a cost of $14,500. The lot on which the now rectory is to stand was purchased at a cost of $3,500, making a to tal expenditure of $1S,000. Of this amount Father Ter Woert said $9,000 had been paid, the fund raised by the recent house to house collection being drawn upon, and the rest would be paid by January 1. What the exact amount collected in this canvass was the pastor did not say, but the parishioners were left to believe that it was more than the $18,000 required. He thanked the people heartily for their lib eral response to the appeal for funds to build a new church, and said that the regular collections at the masses were' in creasing and that the prospects were most promising. __ NO ALIMONY FOR MRS.

Young Murphy was until the date men tioned employed as a messenger by the Pennsylvania Railroad, where his father, has been for years a respected employe. The boy, his parents say, was an omni vorous leader of trashy literature, and they believe that thoughts of success in cber fields we-e instilled Into his mind through the stuff he read. -uoii alter the lad's disappearance a re port reached the parents that their son had been seen on a canal boat bound for Newburg. Another later rumor was to the eilect that young Murphy was see* walking up Montgomery street. On invas urstiou both reports were found gret*nd less.

Menehen, assistant secretary of the Hudson Im rovement Association, complaining against the failure of the Street and Water Board to put in a new water main in Summit avenue, between North street and Pater son street. The writer claim® that the residents of that (section have been agi tating the matter for the past two yearsv and that residents of that section hav* been neglected. It is a well known fact that that sec tion has received more improvement* than anv other section during the last three or four years. As to the complaint of Mr. Mencken, Chief Van ICeuren has prepared a new and comprehensive plan of water con veyance through mains for the entire city. This plan embraces a large water main through the four blocks complained of. The trouble has been that mains,too small were placed in certain sections. These are being replaced as rapidly as possible by larger ones. j WEATHER INDICATIONS NEW YORK, Oct. It. 1901.—Forecast for the thirty-six hours ending at eignt P. M.
