So Fraiiklln Murphy will recommend :he enactment of a strict primary law, will h*? Well, he can recommend all he waste to, but Major Carl Lentz of Newark and the other county bosses will see to it that the Legislature does nothing further than receive the recommendation and file it away With all due respect. The very idea of a strict primary law is enough te cause the doughty Major to sweil up with righteous indignation and become too full to even sputter. What forsooth is to be come of the Major and the faithful, if there is to be a strict primary law? Is he to be deposed and the Hon. ''Bill Riker and his crowd of truly good follow ers to be pku'eil'ol the head of the Essex machine? Not if the Major knows him self and Senator Torn'Mct'aner, anil he thinks he knows them both. There is no occasion for any Republican worker of high or low degree to feel any alarm over this last grand stand play of the “Hon.” Franklin. The time for Sun day school politics in the Republican par ty is not yet ripe, and Major Lentz in Es sex, "Johnny” Rankin in Union, “Sam my” Dickinson in Hudson and “Louie” Derousse in Caftiden will go right along carrying primaries and nominating just whom their bosses order with the same neatness and dispatch as heretofore; Tk* Grakt* Casa Deoigio®. The decision of the .Supreme Court, ren dered this week, which sets aside for the fifth time the verdict obtained by Abra ham Lincoln Graham against the North Jersey Street Railway Company for dam ages for the death of his young son by —tfigu of the company’s cars, has caused many good but over zealous people in ah part* of the State to again indulge in In temperate and unreasonable criticism et the Court. Now. in the flrst place, the merit* of the Graham case are more than doubtful. In the second place, as "The Jersey CUy Mews" has pointed out before, the Cour; should not be blamed for its decision. The fault, if any, is with the law of the Stale and as that law exists today, the best lawyers declare, the Justices could not have rendered any other decision thar they did witheut violating their oaths of office. The real responsibility for the existing state of affairs is the Republican party. A bill was introduced several years ago in the Legislature to amend the law. The Republicans controlled all the machtnery of the government at that time, and, not withstanding their noisy protestations of undying devotion to the interests of the people, they killed the measure. Each year since then, they have continued In control of the Legislature and every at tempt to amend the law has met with A similar fate. If those people who are so loud in the.r denunciation of the Supreme Court for do ing it* plain duty would give thair cen sure a practical turn and heap it upon the Republican party, to which it rightly be longs, by electing a Democratic Legisla tor*. th* serious flaw in the lew of the Slate might he done away with. Th* Hsigrr Army. Trouble le already beginning to loom up for the Hon. Franklin Murphy, Governor elect. The Camden organ of the South Jersey Republicans has served notice upon him that that section of the State gave him three-fourths of his majority and they want nearly If not quite three fourths of th* Executive patronage. This claim will be vigorously contested by the public spirited citisene of this end of th* Btete, who have high anticipations of the good things to come. Especially will these noble patriots, who have been falMng over themselves to get into the Dickinson Association since Mr. Murphy publicly proclaimed Colonel “Sam the < only real thing, resent any attempt like this to diminish the share of the loaves and fishes to which' they think “Hudson is entitled" after her performance of last week. They will lot* no time in bringing their claims tp th* attention of Mr. Mur phy, and, with the South Jerseymen pour ing their demands'Into one ear and the North Jerseymen whispering their claims into the other, the Governor-elect will find that a head does not necessarily have to wear a crown to be uneasy.

The scenes and situations which j follow are without doubt the most sen- i satlonal and compromising ever seen up- j on the stage The co-stars in this production are J. j Haryey Cook and Mi3S I.ottie Churcn, j who are supported by a carefully selected J company, many of whom are well known ^ to Jersey City audiences. Matinee performances of "An Actor’s Romance," will be given on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. Bijou Theatre. In the concert golden in the third act of ’•Sunset Mines," at the Bijou this week, the advantage derived from the placing of the action is, the opportunities it pre sents for varied costuming and 'brilliant illuminations, thus getting away for a time from the sensational features of the play. In the scene and action of this act, 1 there is said to be fun. picturesqueness and brilliancy, and many clever special ties are Introduced by artists, who have won conspicuous success on the vaude- , ville stage. Blmer tl. Vance's “I-imited Mail” has become a tradition among .the patrons of j melodrama, but his later production, : “Treasure Island,” bids fair jo even out- j do the famous success of its former play. ' The original stroke leaves its impression on melodrama patrons, just as it does on j other classes of theatre goers. •■’Pleasure Island" is the most modern of sea melodramas, and the third act j climax, representing a mammoth sailing vessel, first at anchor off a beautiful j island and followed by an intense storm, j always evokes the heartiest applause. I Beatrice plays Jim Hawkins, the pre- ! cecious and nervy kid. and she is gingery i and natural. Few women who essay i hoys’ characters are cvernatural.and they j cannot make a stage boy boyish without being fresh, but Beatrice has caught on to little tficks of male juvenility that help out her impersonations and signalize it no <vna nf tVin VlA-j I Theatre Republic The opening of Grace George in “Uncle • Southern Skies” last Tuesday evening at tliG Theatre Republic, New York, proved to be even a greater occasion for con gratulation than had been anticipated. An audience such as rarely graces even a first night was in attendance, and its ap preciation of player and* of play was so evident as to leave no room for douot concerning the prosperity of the engage ment in Gotham. Miss George in particu lar scored heavily, her unaffected girlish ness, her sympathetic personality, her lack of mannerisms and her agreeable presence augmenting the host of friends she made while appearing at the Man hattan last season in "Her Majesty.” “Under Southern Skies,” which is the work of I,ottle Blair Parker, author of “ ‘Way Down East,” is a piece brimful! of the life and color and motion which add beyond measure to the interest of a presentation. There are scores of young, people who dance, and frolic in the old fashioned, care-free manner, there are ne groes whose voices are heard in half for gotten melodies, and there are the char acters and the .atmosphere that were votod so delightful In Augustus Thomas's "Alabama-” One of these characters is a Louisiana politician, who haB to be forcibly restrained whenever he comes in contact with his enemy, the editor of an opposing newspaper. Another Is a young woman whose bashful sweet heart is saved by her from occupying the unenvi able position of the gingerbread doll of Hans Christen Anderson. And running through all those people and things, as u ._at.. k.tMnoniia olvavE wnrthv rtf at the sea. is a plot that is absorbing in it* strength, now tenderly pathetic, now broadly humorous, always wrothy of al lentlon. Leila Crofton, the heroine of the plot, Is admirably Impersonated by tin; star, Miss George, while her two rival suitors are embodied in Ralph Stuart ard Cuyler Hastings. Others in .the admir able supporting cast formed by William A. Brady arc: Burr McIntosh, Will H. Bray, Kingsley Benedict, Thomas Burns, George C. Staley, Eleanor Gist, Grace Henderson, Alice Leigh. Roza Durant and nearly a hundred others. The settings are exceptionally beautiful and the cos tumes, which are of the period of ISIS, are quaint and picturesque. The N=w York papers were enthusiastic in prais ing the production. Matinees Wednesday and Saturday. __ . Herald Square Theatre. A rather novel advertising scheme In which ash and waste paper barrels are utilized, has been hit upon by the man agement of the Herald Square Theatre to exploit Dan Daly’s favorite song in ‘•The New Yorkers.” A "one sheet” beur inb the request “Take Me Back to Her ald Square” has been printed and pasted upon thousands of barrels In all sorts of places throughout the city. The words are the title of Mr. Daly's pathetic ditty, sung while homesick in London, in the • guise of bogus Russian baron. If It wore not for the fact that Mr. ! Richard Mansfield is booked at the Her- j aid Square Theatre. ‘ The New Yorkers” would, in all probability continue Its mer ry run at that house Indefinitely. How ever, it must leave Broadway the first two weeks more for the tuneful success. A special matinee is announced for Thanksgiving Day. and Manager Shu bert will present souvenirs to the ladies attending the fiftieth performance of the, play, Tuesday evening, November 26. Another Carl Recital. Wiliam C. Carl will give an organ and harp recital next Tuesday afternoon. No vember 19, at four o clock, in the uiu First” Presbyterian Church, Fifth ave nne and Twelfth street, New York, as sisted by Mr. Charles Schuetze, Harp ist. This recital will be given at four o'clock, in response to many requests for an afternoon recital. A brilliant pro gramme has been arranged and the recit al will be free to the public. No tickets required. WITH MARTIN LUTHER. Odd Volumes Study at Resi dence of Mrs. Cavalli. Mrs. Frank Cavalli, of No. 42 Bentley avenue, entertained the Odd Volumes yes terday afternoon at their regular meeting. There was an excellent attendance, with an unusually large complement of guests. The programme consisted of the usually interesting papers, followed by refresh ments ami a social. In the absence of Mrs. John Holland,' president, Mrs. John A. Walker. • vice president, presided. The literary programme was on Martin Luther. Mrs. Robert Myers, who was booked for the biographical sketch, was not present, so Mrs. R, O. ■ Babbitt, Mrs. Frank Cavalli and Mrs. G. W. Case took the subject up impromptu. They read ex tracts from Carlisle and Heine concern ing Luther's life and said that his influ ence on the civilization of the world was through his translations by which he had virtually made the German language. He was. in the estimation' of the dis cussers, the most courageous man who ever lived. Miss Doremus read a paper on “Ger man Hymns.” Hymnology, she said, had been neglected. Only the ethical side had been brought out up to Luther’s time. Although the Moravians may have writ ten some, he was the father -of the hymn. He did not treat with the past, but took the best out of the past and made it appeal to the German people. He did not write tunes. His influence was one of awe for good. Miss Doremus’s paper was charmingly illustrated by Mrs. Talbot Chambers, who sung verses from the hymns mentioned. She was ably accompanied by Mrs. Frank Cavalli. An interesting talk on "Current Events” was given by Mrs. James Robottom. She. spoke of the London fog, which, she said, cost England as much as the Boer war; of the death of Kate GreenawSy; of Roosevelt as the youngest'President, and of German thought as the prevailing thought Of the day. The next meeting will be held on Wed nesday afternoon, November 27, at the residence of Mrs. Talbot Chambers, No. 110 Mercer street. MRS. CRAIG WINS CUP. Ex-Champion Carries Off the Niese Cup by Diffi cult Play.

ANNUAL REPORT OF BOARD New Jersey’s Law of 1900 on the Taxing of Franchises. The annual report of the State Board of Taxation, now In the hands of the Gov ernor, contains a somewhat elaborate treatise upon the subject of tax legisla tion In other States. The dissertation is based upon a study and comparison of the various statutes on the subject In ex istence In other States. “It Is instructive and Interesting," says the report, “to note the general jfrend of tax legislation In the various States. No public question is. so prominently before the Legislatures of onr country. During the colonial period and up tq about 1850, taxes were levied on specific objects, be ing confined to that which was visible and fungible, and real estate bore the main burden of taxation. Since 1850, ow | Ing to the concentration of population In cities, the rapid creation of wealth in those centres and the constant formation of new forms of industry, property has taken many complicated forms which did | not previously exist. This has made nec essary a gradual change in the tqx laws, In order to reach new and less tangible forms of wealth. “Moreover, the. Civil War threw addi tional burdens on the Slates, and legisla tive ingenuity was taxed to meet the demands of increasing municipal ex penses. The inability of legislators—in many instances untrained in this particu lar branch of government—led to. the lot j rnation of tax commissioners to invest;- j gale this intricate subject and to suggest ! remedial enactments. At the present | time many of our States have not onl had these temporary commissions, but have created permanent State boards of equalization, whose duty it is not only to equalize• taxes in dispute, but to keep constantly abreast of the best modern methods of taxation and to suggest im proved and remedial enactments to their i icspectlve legislatures. “The principal of state supervision over local assessing officers has been rec ognized by the enactment of laws provid ing for the appointment of those Sta o boards or of other officers. i “There is a strong popular demand in different Slates for the taxation of the lrarehlses- of corporations. In New York an act was passed In 1899, providing that franchises shall be considered real es tate for the purposes of taxation and shall be taxed by the State tax commis sioner for State and local purposes in the same manner as other property is taxed. The New Jersey act on this subject, passed at the session of 1SV0, is similar in some respects to the New York statute. Like it, our statute provides for the taxa tion of persons and corporations using the highways, streets and public places, except railroad and canal companies. But the New Jersey law provides that the property shall be assessed locally and taxed at local rates, as heretofore, and that a tax of 2 per centum on gross re ceipts be assessed upon these persons or corporations, annually, and apportioned ■to the taxing dstrets in proportion to the value of property thereto, which so use the public streets and highways. “It is noticeable thnt there is a ten dency in many States to change the basis of assessment of corporations from gross receipts to the . total value of property and franchises, but the great difficulty of reaching the value of franchises and the simplicity of the grass receipt tax com bine to make the latter much more ex tensively adopted. “In the Southern State* the tendency la to levy taxes for State purposes on licenses and privileges, such as amuse ments, auctioneers, pawnbroker*, etc. All forms of business are taxed in this manner, none sreming to be too insignifi cant to escape. In South Carolina, an act has been passed imposing an income tax of 1 per efentum on incomes between The Right Thing. A New Catarrh Cure. Which Is Rapidly Coming to the Front. For several years, Euealyptol Gualaeol and Hydnwiin have been recognized as standard remedies for catarrhal troubles, but they have always been given separ ately and only very recently an ingenious chemist succeeded in combining them, to gether with other antiseptics into a pleas ant, effective tablet. Druggist* sell the remedy under the name of Stuart’s Catarrh Tablets and it has met with remarkable success in the cure of nasal catarrh, bronchial and ! tarost catarrh and in catarrh of the stomach. Mr F. X 'Benton, whose address tm care of Clark House, Troy. X. Y., suys:-~ "When 1 run ut> against anything that is good I like to tell people of It. I have been troubled with catarrh more or leas for some time. Bust winter more than ever. Tried several so-called cures, but did not get any benetlt from them. About six weeks ago I bought a 50 cent box of Stuart’s Catarrh Tablet* and am glad to eav that they have done wonders for me. and I do not hesitate to let all my friends know that Stuart’s Catarrh Tablets ure the right thing." , _ Mr Geo. J. Casanova, of Hotel Grit fon, West 9th street, New York City, writes: "I have commenced using Stuart * Catarrh Tablets and already they have glveh me better rceulis than any catarrh cure X huve ever tried." A leading physician of Pittsburg advises the use of Stuart's Catarrh Tablet* In preference to any. other treatment for catarrh of the-bead, throat He claims they are. far I halers, salves, lotion* or •tet'tta 60L& MJST twins do your work*" Three times e day, 1095 times a year tha BOLD OUST twins will make your dish-washing easy. THE N. K. FAIRBANK COMPANY. Chicwa $2,600 and $6,000 ; 2 per centum on in comes between *5,003 and *10,000, and 3 per centum on incomes over *10,000. North Carolina has passed n similar act. providing that a 5 per centum ‘tax should be levied on incomes from property not otherwise taxed: '4 per centtim on in comes in excess of *1,500, and Vi per cen tum on those over *5,000. “Virginia has passed an act imposing a tux of *1 on ail seals of all courts and notaries, by means of an adhesive stamp to be affixed to the eeal, over which the seal shall be placed in such a way as to cancel the stamp. The. auditor of public -aoobunts prepares the stamps and fur nishes them to county and city treasurers for sale to individuals. This system pre vails in Canada to some extent, but so far ae we know, this is the only instance In our country of the use of stamps by a State for the collection of a tax. “It is noticeable that while the South ern States are imposing additional taxes in the shape of licenses and income taxes most of the Eastern States are seeking to attract capital through liberal tag laws. In a recent message the Governor of Vermont recommended that the towns of that State which have many attrac tions as summer homes, should be allow ed to contract with citizens coming from other States for a certain amount of per sonal tax, to be paid for a period of years in lieu of all returns from taxation. In the State of Connecticut, an act has been passed whereby holders of bonds may reg ister them and pay a tax of *2 for every *1.000 of bonds this rate being fixed for a term of years. in reunsyivama, personal property in the hands ot' the holder is subject to a tax at the rate of 4 mills on the dollar of the value thereof. There is a strong sen timent in New York in favor of allowing municipalities to vote on the question of exempting personal property. Through out the Eastern States there is a growing inclination to relieve personal property from taxation by legislative enactment, and to substitute other forms of taxa tion, such as the inheritance tax. excise tax anc franchise tax, all of which ulti mately involve ihe taxation of persona! property. “In both Eastern and Western States the drift of legislation is designed to sep arate State from local sources of revenue, and to assess the property , of steam rail roads and the franchises of other corpor ations by State boards, under uniform rules. Many Western States seem to incline toward the use 6f inquisitorial methods in ascertaining the value of property for local taxation, but in the East this mode of assessment grows more and more in disfavor with each year. “In the Western States the tendency Is to relieve agricultural property by ex empting farm'implements, growing crops, etc., and by imposing additional tax on corporations. In many of the Western States the tax acts have been revised in recent years. In Michigan, Wisconsin and Missouri the inheritance tax has been e.v tablished. This tax now exists in some form in twenty of our States. The in heritance tax in Pennsylvania and Min nesota, established in 1897, has been de clared unconstitutional by the Supine Court.” DR. AYLSWORTH STAYS. Sinptaa Methodist Church Calls Him for Sixth Year. A signal and deserved compliment was paid to the Rev. Robert M. Aylsworth, D. D., on Monday night at the quarterly conference of Simpson M. E. Church, when he was called by a unanimous vote to the pastorate of the church for the sixth consecutive year. Dr. Aylsworth Is the first Methodist Episcopal clergyman in Jersey City, if not the first in the county, to have this honor conferred upon him. In his five years' pastorate in the second oldest church of the city he has added over four liundred members to the congregation and has placed the church on a sound financial basis. At the com mencement of Pastor Aylsworth's minis try Simpson Church stood sixteen in the matter of benevolences, while today It Is first among the churches of that de nomination. T>r. Aylsworth, to the great satisfaction of the members of the congregation, has accepted the call for a sixth year, and the indications are that Simpson's era of prosperity will be continued.
