The wave of insanity which seemed to be sweeping some cltiaens off their feet last week, has passed on, and left the majority standing on bottom facts again. We do notj hear as much of, Mr. Fagan being such a poor young man that it is incumbent on the people to boost him into a *6,000 a year salary regardless of the fact that he is incapable of performing the duties which go with it. The people be ing "no longer tossed about by the wave are collecting their scattered senses and ascertaining where they are at. First of all, citiaens have recovered pos session of the idea that the Mayoralty of Jersey City is a very large sired office. It* duties are of great magnitude; the interests depending on it are colossal. It requires both great and varied powers and acquirements to enable a man to fill the position even passably well. The man who makes a good Mayor of Jersey City must bo m financier, a business man. a profound judge of human nature, a toler able lawyer, a man of cool temper, sound judgment and inflexible will. Even supposing Mr. Mark Fagan pos sesses some or all of these characteristics, he has never had an opportunity to prove It. to the people. Except as "a nice but poor young man of thirty-eight” he is almost an unknown quantity. He has occupied but one small office, that of Freeholder, and in that position he show ed neither strength of character, conspic uous ability or conscientious regard for the public good. It may be said that Mr. Smith Is equally without a record as an office holder. This Is true; he has never been a professional politician and Fagan has been one all his life. But Mr. Smith has made a transcendant success of busi ness life in an executive capacity, whereas Mr. Fagan, according to his own story, has reached almost middle age without making any success at all. The people are beginning to clearly per ceive the difference between the men, and the result is not In doubt. Besides, the Democratic, voters are beginning to re alise that the election of Mr. Fagan would have far reaching effects, which they never contemplated. The displacement of deserving men of all classes from the eminent merchants who serve in the Board of t^nance down to the City Hall doorkeeper® trould be a result that would bring deep regret to many who talk flip pantly OH Voting for Mr. Fagan, Just as it the election"bf'a Mayor were a sort of personal compliment, with which the city had no concern.

It is reported on good authority that the local leaders of the party of highly moral ideas are making all preparations to have their county return a sufficient plurality to overcome any which Mayor Seymour may secure In the remainder of the State and thus Insure the election of Franklin Murphy against the expressed will of a majority of the people. Gentle men who have recently been in Camden declare that preparations for the consum mation of this Infamy are already under way and will be successful unless prompt and energetic measures are undertaken to counteract them. It therefore behooves the Democratic State Committee to co-operate at once with the Camden County Committee in devising means to circumvent this nefari ous scheme of the Republican leaders. Camden for many years has been the hot bed of Republican corruption, and with that party in control of the ballot ma chinery an honest election is unknown. Borne of the worst outrages on the ballot box in the political history of this country have been committed in Camden County by the Republicans and there is reason to believe that in the present desperate straits in which they find themselves to day, they are preparing to go to any length to elect their candidate. Seymour Mid the Soldier*. Every Jerseyman who hastened to an swer President McKinley’s call for volun teers. when the war between Spain and the United States was declared, has rea son to feel under obligation to Mayor Seymour. His declaration in his letter of acceptance that he believed in the enact ment of such additional proper laws as would insure the care, support and privi leges of the soldiers of the Republic, whether they served in the War of the Rebellion or in the war against the Span ish nation, coming from a man of the Mayor’s character, should leave no doubt of the sincerity of his desire to see that Justice Is done to veterans of the Spanish American war. In his acts as weH as in his sayings the Democratic candidate has evinced his deep concern for the welfare of the Jer sey boy who wore the khaki. When the troops were- mustered out and the First Regiment of Newark was being wronged, the Democratic Mayor of Newark wrote to the Republican Governor of New Jer sey and requested him to exercise his influence as the head of the State in be half of the volunteers, and Foster M. Voorhees w’ho, all through the war kept himself on a high pedestal posing as the soldier’s only friend, did not even answer Mayor Seymour's letter. This should leave no doubt in the minds of the volunteers as to what they may expect from James M. Seymour when he is Governor of New Jersey. RECISTERJODAY Today Is the last day of registration.

AMUSEMENTS. “Ihi Dairy Farm" at tba Academy of Music. The Academy of Music is giving its patrons a genuine treat this week in pre senting Eleanor Merron’s domestic drama, “A Dairy Farm,” Humor and pathos are so evenly divided in the production that smiles and tears alternately reward the efforts of the players. The songs and dance® with which the performance is in terspersed form a big feature of the even ing's pleasure. An atmosphere of home pervades the play, though there are moments when the action become® almost sensational. There are four act®, the scene of all being the farm. This has been heavily mortgaged by the owner. Squire Hurley, ably played by Mac M. Barnes, to Simon Krum, whose villainy Mr. Theo. Rook so thoroughly ex poses that the audience slmplydetests him; This man Krujn threaten® to foreclose the mortgage, but hi® plans are frustrated by .Nathan Newkirk, whom Mr. John Mil ton proved to be a herq Indeed. The ft rat act is delightfully pastoral, lit it Nathan Newkirk woos Lucy, a maid Whom nobody owns and whose only for tune is her face. Mias Louise Everts pre sents the part so, charmingly that every body think* her lover has secured a veri table prise. The plot of Krum and his nephew, Ellas Pleugh (Robert Sinclair), to gain the farm develops before the drop of the curtain. Christmas eve dawns on Act II. and as a seasonable expression of good will Mr; TO CTTAE A COLD IX OWE DAT. Taka Laxative Bromo Quinine Tablets. All druggists rtf and the money If it falls to cure. — 52 _nn eooVi knv S. w. arove's signature Is on each box. ISO. Krum lets the Squire know of his de signs on his property, to save which a match with Eunice Perkins. (Miss Helen Hartley) Is suggested to Nathan. Nathan, like the man he is, spurns the offer and remains faithful to his own true love. Two years elapse before the opening of Act III. and in this interval Nathan rises to local greatness. His oratory turns the tide in an election and his po sition becomes so commanding that when Christmas eve again ushers in Act IV. he is able to show the villainous Simon Krum in his true colors and save the farm to his uncle. Of course he marries Lucy and lives happy ever after. The play is well presented throughout and affords a pleasant evening to those who like a representation of American country }ife. Sarah Ward i6 very good as Sarah Newkirk, the Squire’s sister, whose motherly qualities win the admira tion of all beholders. The lads and lasses of the farm are very amusing and their antics add much to the entertainment. “The Dairy Farm” will be at the Acad emy of Music alt the week with the cus tomary matinees. “Th» Village Parson” at tka B jou Theatre. A beautiful story well told is “The Vil lage Parson,” the attraction this week at the Bijou Theatre. Not only is it a play of much interest, but the cast is a strong one and the story is presented in a forci ble and artistic manner. The climax to the first act was a clever bit of work and there were four curtain calls. At the con clusion of each act applause was liberally bestowed. The story is that of a village parson and his wife who live happily in their modest, quiet Louisiana home. Her father committed a crime while she was yet young, and was sent to jail. She keeps this from her husband. Subsequently two brothers, one a lawyer, very much in love with the parson's wife, become acquainted with the secret of the wife. The lawyer was also cognizant of the fact that tile parson's wife had fallen heir to a largo estate. He concealed this -from her. A plan is then entered into by the brothers to ruin the wife and cause a sep aration from her husband. The parson is told thRt his wife possesses a secret which she dare not disclose to him about her past life. This, combined with the dis covery of his wife in the company of one of the plotting brothers, leads the parson to believe his wife faithless, and he casta her off. One brother, Bud Gordon, has an ac complice whom he kills In a auarrel over some money. The lawyer, Felix Gordon, sees the fight and gets his brother to es cape. He then charges the parson with murder. The parson escapee and turns up eight years later in New Orleans where his wife is singing to earn a living. Sub sequently the parson’s wife comes into possession of the document which entitles her to her estate. She gains her rights and her husband’s name is cleared by the arrest of the real murderer and his brother. The scenery Is excellent, especially that showing the carnival. Mr. Walter Mon? tague as the Rev. Tom Godley, the par son. proved himself an actor of rare ability. His role required much effort and his work was true to life and not over done. His voice is rich and clear.. Mr. Hal Clarendon was clever as the polished vlliian and Mr. Harold Vosburg, his rogue brother, was most acceptable. Mr. Scott Lawrence as a big raw-boned and husky farmer, displayed ability. Miss Anna V. Rlsher filled the role of the parson’s wife. She has'a good voice, and she was espee' atly good in the final act in the struggle with the villain Miss Josie Claftin had a good opportunity for German dialect, ami Miss Rente Grou.- as the parson's blind child, proved a clever little actress.

TRUSTS FAVOR BfURPHY He Is Allowed in Fountries Which Are Closed to the Democratic Nominee. [Special to "The Jereey City N«ws.’’l WOODBURY, Oct. 22, 1901.—Mayor James M. Seymour began the second visit of his whirlwind campaign through the State In search of votes with a tour of Gloucester County. The looal committee arranged a schedule of events for yester day that was destined to keep Mr. Sey mour on the move from early morning until late at night. He' had to leave his home Sunday night in order to be here In time for the day’s work. He was met at Philadelphia last night by Edward E. Grosacup, former member of the Stute Committee from Cumberland, and a colleague of Mr. Seymour In the State Board of Education. Mr. Grosscup Is now a resident of Gloucester County. He resides at Wenonah, and thither he took Mr. Seymour to spend the night, so as to be on the scene of his day's work early. The start was made before 8 o’clock In the morning, the candidate being escorted through the glass blowing industries of Woodbury. He was cordially greeted by the workmen, to many of whom he was personally introduced. Nine o’clock saw the candidate and his local escort whirl ing on the West Jersey road toward Swedesboro. Here an early meeting was held and two hundred voters listened to the Mayor discuss his labor record and tell how he proposes to conduct the ad ministration of the State's affairs In the event of his election. Mulllca Hill was the next point of at tack by the campaigners, who conducted another morning meeting and reception, both of which were sataisfactory to the local leaders. The stay here was brief, as It was necessary to make a rapid run to Williamstown for a midday meeting and dinner. All these places are centres of the glass-making industry, and the Idea of the party leaders was to present .iieir candidate to the workingmen as a man risen from their own ranks. The popular ity of Thomas M. Ferrell in this, his home .county, is due to the fact that he has ns en from the blasts of the glass factories, and It was the desire of the men in whose keeping the Mayor is to show the work men a man of the same stock as the popu lar Ferrell. The afternoon was spent at other places lr. the county. The Mayor was driven from Willtamstown to Clayton, where he made a speech. He continued his drive to Glassboro, the Intention being to arrive there at 5 o’clock, in time to meet the men as they leave the factories and ad dress them in the open air. The candidate was railroaded into Woodbury again in time for the big mass meeting that had been arranged to beheld in the Opera House. The Democrats claim that in certain sections of the State the heads of some of the great industrial concerns have shown unfair partiality to Franklin Mur phy, the Republican candidate. They in stance the case of the Taylor Steel and Iron Works, at Htghbridge, Hunterdon county. When Candidate Seymour was touring through that county last Tuesday he was driven to the Taylor mills by Senator Gebhardt and State Committee man PIdcock. The local men asked for permission for Mr. Seymour to go through the works and meet the employes. The request was politely though firmly re fused, the company’s representative an nouncing it to be contrary to an inviolable rule of the company to permit any out sider to pass through the mills. Candidate Murphy was in Hunterdon Thursday. Permission was asked in his behalf to make a visit to the mills. The company in this instance enforced its rule against visitors against the men who accompanied Mr. Murphy, but made an exception in his case. He was shown through the big plant by a member of the concern and was introduced to many of the workmen. i Different treatment has been accorded to Candidate Seymour by the factory and mill owners of South Jersey. Although in the majority of instances they are Re publicans, not one has discriminated • to the detriment of Mr. Seymour. RECISTERTODAY Today Is the last day of registration.

He sustained injuries of which he died naif an hour later. He expired while he wa3 being taken to the First street depot. Flattery was a boilermaker. He went to the West Shore Railroad shops yester day to seek employment, but waB unsuc cessful. He was returning to his home when he was hit by the train. His body was removed to Parslow’s morgue, Hobo ken. There is a viaduet over the west Shore tracks where the accident occurred. Dr. Converse did not order an inquest because he said Flattery was walking where he had no business to walk. A New York policeman, who claims to be F>a- • tery's brother-in-law, called at the morgue this morning and said that he would demand that an inquest be held.

That things are not always what they seem, even In tobacco, says the London “Standard,” is piquantly revealed by the report issued recently by the principal chemist of the government laboratory. The cheap cigar, however, is not such an unblushing fraud as once it was, but we must still not trust to omuch in the hame; the most we often con hope is that the tobacco grew at the place whose name it bears, for a large number of “foreign” cigars are manufactured in England, be cause leaf tobacco pays a much lower duty than the cigar itself. The law, how ever, has to tight against adulteration, and in the main, as we gather, does It successfully. Sonde “additions” are al lowed, as necessities or Improvements; but a certain number of manufacturers, if given an inoh, try to make an ell, by al ways mixing with the tobacco ns much as possible of any ingredients that may legally be used. A little water, • for In stance, is required, but not enough mate rially to increase the weight. 1b roll tobacco a small quantity of some kind of oil Is wanted, but some time ago it was found that both this and the cake tobacco from certain factories contained much more oil than was Justifiable: also lhai the amount was gradually being in creased, and the practice was spreading probably because others were doing it in self defense. Nor was this the only adul terant. About a year ago action was again taken, and the legal limit fixed at four per cent. That a check was needed is shown by the fact that forty-four ou: of sixty-one samples were found to be uduitehated—one-fourth with either licj liice or glycerine, the rest with salicylic ikeid. It is satisfactory to learn that t substantial penalty was inflicted. It is welf the article should be pure now tnai the consumption has. become so large. For the year ended list March S2,221.91b pounds of leaf tobacco-And S.24S,2#3 pounds of manufactured wore imported into the United Kingdom. Rather more than 2,000, 000 pounds of this was again exported, but over 8d.40tl.uo0 pounds remained, and w? suppose had for Us epitaph piuvis. et um bra-snuff and smoke. In fact, we use on an average a little over two pounds a head yearly. The increase has been mark ed during i he last ten years. From 1841. when a little less than 14 ounces a head was consumed, there has been a gradual rise of something like 3 ounces a decade, but during the last ten years the annual consumption has been increased by 7 ounces. This is mostly due to the habit of cigarette smoking, which has extended to women, and is the de light of street urchins. The custom has its drawbacks. The ambitious youth after trial of the old-fashioned pipe sometimes found that sensations worse than those of a chan nel passage did not encourage him to per severe, but the mildness of the cigarette tempts to unrestricted consumption. Doc tors, however, tell us that tobacco in this form is less harmless than it seems, and make it responsible for neurasthenia and something like angina pectoris. But there have been fashions, as in every thing else, in the consumption of tobacco. Probably not one person chews wherc twenty did in the days pf Nelson. More than a century ago the “long clay,” or the “church-warden” was the fashionab’e pine in the common rooms of colleges no less than in the village alehouse. Then smoking was for a time voted bad form, and snuff came into voffue. From the davs of the Regency to the opening of the Victorian era most gentlemen and many ladles took it. Huge silver snuff boxes were placed on college tables at dessert—one at Cambridge owns a genuine ram's horn adorned with Scotch pebbles— now they have mostly retired to the plati chests. Then the pipe came in again. Gone, except In some by street, are the effigies of snuffing Highlanders. Gone to cabinets of curios aTe the boxes, little and gold, and adorned with miniatures and jewels. Not often do we see friends ex changing pinches of snuff. Yet it is still consumed, especially by workingmen, and, as the report leads us to infer, in very considerable quantities. oRuaaisrCATARRi FOR I 0 CENT TRIAL SIZE Ely’sCreamBala.
