TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1901. ThU p aper is Democratic in principi mid is independent in its vietes on all local questions. Th» .‘JounalV Hoboken Somat. The "Journal,” which appears to be de termined to blacken the reputation of Hudson County all It can, devoted a screamer head and several columns of i apace to the allegation that there were large-sized election frauds in Hoboken. It claims that there were 1,000 illegal vote* cast at the recent election, and It asserts that Prosecutor Erwin is in pos session of evidence to prove the fact. ‘By a remarkable coincidence, just at the . very time when the presses were running j off this sensational story, the proper j official* at the Court tHouse were com- | pfeting a recount of one ward of Hobo- i ken, in which the result had been die- ; puted.. This recount was unproductive of ; result. It did not materially alter the j result as previously canvassed. It re- j vealed no fraud; it exhibited no serious j irregularity. Probably persons who may have waded through the "Journal's'' tirade will njt be surprised at this. They will have ob served that while the headlines were strong enough, the article itself was pe culiarly weak. There was not one ’'arti cle of evidence in it from start to finish. The assertion that 1,000 illegal votes were cast was there; but not one case was speci fied. Indeed the only attempt at a de tail in the article was the statement that detectives, who had been at work since the election, had discovered from iOO to 300 fraudulent votes. Just why they should be so vague as to the number is net explained, nor is the decrepancy be tween their discoveries and the sensa tional 1,000 fraudulent votes accounted for. Then there are interviews. Mr. Erw n says he will leave nothing undone to get at the true facts in the Hoboken case. This is hardly an important statement. Chief Murphy of Jersey City says he cannot now discuss the matter without interfering with the ends of justice. This la rather in the nature of a "chops and tomato sauce” confirmation. Counsellor William H. Speer says flat footed that there was manifest fraud in Hoboken. But he is singularly weak in proof of his assertion; in a word he does not try to prove it at all. And, besides, he has the retainer of Mayor Lawrence Fagan and his clique in his pocket. The whole business is a huge fake. There was no concerted fraud in Hobo ken unless it may have been In the in terest of Mr. Verdon. The election will bear all the Investigation that the Citi zens’ Union can give it. If they do not know this already, why do they not apply for a recount? Fanatical Folly A* to the Wqno* Question. Tlie Rev. Hervey Wood exhibited him self in a very unpleasant light at St. Paul’s Methodist Church, last evening. His remarks were both blind and un scrupulous. He said that the purpose to legalize the opening of saloons In New York on Sunday was an effort to extend the liquor traffic. Nothing can be more absurd. For all practical purposes the saloons of New York are just as open today as they would be if the law legalized their open ing. Not one glass of liquor would bs sold if the saloons were open with the protection of the law that is not sold now. Perhaps the sale would be decreased. Certainly the prac tice of clinging to the bar for hours at a time would be lessened. At present, when a man slinks Into a saloon oh Sunday, in defiance of law, he is apt to stay there, until he has drunk his fill. If he could walk in openly and unquestioned, he would often take his drink and walk out again, and perhaps not return. This Is the extraordinary fatuity of men lik*’ Htf:~V*?obd/ At one moment they rail against the fact that the sa loons are open in defianee of law; the very next, they pretend to think that the saloons are closed and assert that ft change In the law would open them. Mr. Wood next alleged that only three Protestant clergymen had endorsed the legalization of Sunday opening. This is certainly untrue. A very -large number have done so—unless, of course, Mr. Wood excludes the Episcopal communion from Protestantism. HU assertion that, If the Sabbath goes, the church must go with it is preposterous. No one proposes ttint the Sabbath shall go, and in all Protestant Europe, except Scotland, liquor is legally sold on Sunday. In these Hot Rolls, hot muffins, hot cakes, , made with Royal Baking Powder may be freely eaten without fear of indigestion. countries there is quite as much Chris tianity and much less foolish bigotry than in the United States. Finally, Mr. Wood says the press is | subsidized by the liquor traffic. There j is only one small word of three letters I in the English language which describes j this assertion, but as Mr. Wood writes "Rev.” before his name we will refrain from using it. The statement is foolish beyond the need of demonstration. The newspapers are free from prejudices, j They are not blinded by fanaticism. They j see things rarely, as they are. This is i why they differ so radically from wild extremists like Mr. Wood. AMUSEMENTS. “Ai Actor’s Rmuo*" at tk« Acad emy af Muio. ‘‘An Actor's Romance." a four act com edy drama from the pen of Theodore Kreraer, under the management of H. W. Taylor, began a week's engagement at the Academy of Music last night with the popular romantic actor. J. Harvey Cook and his wife, who appears under the name of Miss Lottie Church, as twin stars. The piece has been' seen in this city once before, it made an excellent impression on the local theatregoers and last night the house was filled with an appreciative and critical audience that j applauded the artists for their exception- I ally fine presentation. That the play was well presented was best proven by the obvious pleasure of the author, who oc cupied a box. Mr. Kremer was well pleased with the clever way his well con structed scenes were carried through. The audience was pleased and placed the stamp of its approval on the perform ance. The plot is based on the love of Flor ence Hastings, an actress, for Harold Davenport, an actor. Davenport weds Louise Woodford, a country girl, and Miss Hastings, in a fit of jealousy, sends poisoned bon-bons as a wedding gift, j Harold is about to eat of the poisoned , candy when Miss Hastings stops him and j confesses her attempt on the life of the bride, offering as her ekeuse her great love. She is cast out, and then she en snares Jack Woodford, Mrs. Davenport’s brother. In order to prove that Jack is merely a tool for the woman, Davenport traps her alone in a cafe and she ex presses her love for him in Woodford’s presence. Her lover, Robert Livingston, brings Mrs. Davenport where she can see her husband playing the lover and she falls to see the sham. Mrs. Davenport secures a divorce and the custody of the child. On the eve of a great triumph Davenport learns of his child’s death. Miss Hastings calls at his dressing room and taunts him. He attempts her life. Afterward, when he is making a great hit, Miss Hastings occupies a box and jeers at him. He denounces her and she shoots him from the audience. He recov ers and remarries 'his wife. At the re union Miss Hastings sneaks within ear shot and is met by her discarded lover, Livingston, now a wreck of his former self. He kills the woman who ruined him. • i-utr Mr. Cook and Miss Church present fine pictures of the actor and actress. Ruby Edwards as Dottle Dillingham, a sou brette, looks and plays the part with lifelike realism. She is the life of the piece and she scored a decided hit. W. H. Dlmock and Aubrey Noyes, as Jack Woodford and Robert Livingston, respectively, were adequate, as were Harry Le Mott and Gus Gauss. Marion Chester is all that is disagreeable in mothers-in-law as Mrs. Woodford, mother of Davenport’s wife. "Tronomre Itlnd” at tk» Bijon I Tkoatro. The Bijou Theatre was last night filled ! with an audience that showed it« appre ciation by unstinted applause of Elmer E. Vance’s dramatization of Robert Louis Stevenson’s celebrated novel, “Treasure Island,” and of the efforts of the clever company that figured in its production. Its one great scene is a storm seen from the deck of the ship Hispaniola while anchored off the treasure island in the Carrlbean Sea, where the pirate. Captain Kidd, Is supposed to have burled a treas ure. The audience witnesses a tropical etorm on land and sea. What was con sidered last night by the audience to be the solid deck of the ship was found to be a false stage, thus enabling the staunch old ship to be buffeted about by mountainous waves in a manner that added to the realiam of the scene. The fierce combat between those in charge of the vessel, while several of the lead ing character* were ashore, with mu tineering pirates clamoring over the ship's sides is realistic. The name of the star of the cast ap pears on programme eimply as Beatrice, | in the role of Jim Hawkins, the cabin I boy. Last night she distinguished her self by clever dancing, including acro batic “stunts.” As an expert swordsman —and she figured in several cutlass duels, —she carried hei" audience with her. j Martin A. Somers, as Iftll Bones, the pirate, alias John' Silver*,' the sea cook, showed histrionic talent tit no mean or*;, der. The rest of the east was accept able. Mr. Clifford' B. Snjlth as.

The impersona tion of the murderous pirate Blackbeard, who wished to possess the Squire’s <Jaugh^ ter Kate, by Mr. Raymond Gilbert was good. The pirate crew consisted of Messrs. Wentworth Berry, Prank Foster, George Morris, Edward Weltzel,, W. C. Coughlin and Louis Schneider. Mr. E. L. White appears as an honest sailor, and Ani Eleston as Mrs. Hawkins, Jim’s mother. THE CHRISTMAS GUILD. Each Church and Institute to Hold Its Own Exhibit. There is to be a change in the manner of handling the Christmas Guild exhibit this year. Instead of being held in one hall on one day, each church and insti tution is to hold its own exhibition, at its own convenience, within given dales. Of late the Board of Directors has real ized that the undertaking is assuming huge proportions, almost too great for | a single board to handle. Last year Phil lips Hall was found wholly inadequate to hold all the goods that were contri buted. Many boxes were not unpacked, for there was not room enough to dis play their contents. At a recent meeting of the Board of Directors, after mature deliberation, it was decided that it would be advisable that each church and insti tution in the city to hold its own exhi bition separately, some time between the first and twentieth of December. St. Francis’s Hospital was the first to establish a date under the new regime, and its exhibit will be ready for inspec tion in the large reception room on Thursday, December 12, from two until five o'clock. The hospital table has al ways been distinguished, not only for the great number but for the superior quality of its donations. The sisters in charge of the hospital expect an elegant display, so many of the wives of the medical staff will take a deep interest in the undertak ing. Miss Ellie O’Neill, daughter of ex Mayor O’Neill, assisted by Mrs. J. Cor coran, Mrs. E. Data and others, have worked assidiouBly for the hospital from the beginning. St. Peter’s, St. John’s and the other churches have not yet fixed dates, but will soon do so. It has been a cause of great rejoicing to the ladies interested In the Guild that the work has spread so rapidly in every direction. Among the members are:—Miss Irene Chadwick, Mrs. Farrel, Mrs. Egan, Mrs. Mylotte, Miss Devitt, Mrs. Somers, Mrs. Tunnard, Mrs. J. J. Cone, Mrs. E. Gil more, Miss Whelihan, Mrs. Warren, Miss Barry, Mrs. E. Dixon, Mrs) Prlnn, Mrs. Hennessy, Mrs. Quirk, Mrs. Hagan, Miss Lynch, Mrs. Walsh, Miss Edge, Mrs. Hetherington and Miss Corrigan. The Christmas Guild is an organization formed about seven years ago by promi nent Catholic wbmen of Jersey City to aid the outdoor poor of the different par ish churches. It has always held an annual exhibition. In these years more than twenty-five thousand articles of warm clothing, besides food and fuel, have been distributed to the needy. F0WLER-CHESE8R0. Sob of L*to Eagiaoor Weddod is 1b Brooklyn Lut Night. Among the out of town weddings of in terest to Jersey City was that at the resi dence of Mr. Amos G. Chesebro, No. 6*2 Putnam avenue, Brooklyn, last evening Miss Martha G. Chesebro, a graduate of Packer Institute, was married to Mr. Kenneth Fowler of'this city. The Rev Cornelius Wcelpkln, pastor of the Greet. Avenue Baptist Church of Brooklyn, and formerly of the North Baptist Church of this city, performed -the ceremony. The bride was given away by her father and attended by her sister, Miss Eunice Chesebro. The best man was Mr. Eu gene W. Leake of this city. The color scheme was green and white. After a wetjding supper served by Maresi, Mr. and Mrs. Fowler left for an extended tour through the South. Upon their return they will reside in Brooklyn. Mr. Fowler Is a prominent young man of this city and son of the late Luclen D. Fowler, formerly Chief Engineer of this city.

Amerioan Mailing Co. of This City Pronounced by P. 0. Inspec tion a Fraud. OFFERED 250 PER CENT RETURNS Birds Had Flown When New rrtfi ■York Office Was Raided —Enticing Circulars. Another get-rieh-quick concern located in this city has gone up and thousands of gullible creatures mourn their dollars. At No. 45 Montgomery street was "The American Addressing and Mailing Com pany,” a blind for C. E. Mackey & Co., of No. 32 Broadway, New York. These enterprising gentlemen, Imitating the fa mous Anglo-Bengalee Loan Company's plan, promised as high as 239 per cent, to Investors. The bait to the silly ones read as follows:— “The plans adopted enable every client to increase his interests'In the ‘Investors' Fund’ on most favorable terms, viz.: The securing of a 2100 certificate, which pays 6 per cent, monthly, upon the payment of 280, and enable# him to become a stock holder in a most flourishing remunerative business, practically without cost. “The surplus earnings from the com bined capital, under the plan of reorgani zation, really pays for each, subscriber's stock holdings.” Would-be investors are informed that they may subscribe for as much of the capital stock of the Mackey Investment Company a# they may desire up to 210,000 at the rate of 280 per share, and) then fol lows this golden promise:— “With each share of stock subscribed for you receive, gratis, a certittcate for 2100 In the ‘Investors’ Fund,' with coupons attached calling for 6 per cent, a month. This certificate is subject to withdrawal on January 1, and consequently your profit on each share you purchased under this plan amounts on January 1 as fol lows:—220 on the ‘Investors’ ‘Fund’ certifi cate: 27 cash value of each share of stock at that time; 212 interest on November and December coupons', and an estimated surplus of about 28- Total profit on January 1 on each 2S0 investment, 243, or a ~v.tle over 56 per cent. “AH subscription# must be in on No vcmhor 1 ” In the Montgomery street office no money was taken—that went to New York. Only the enticing qirculara were mailed here and the office up to a lew days ago was run by a glib young man named George Mason. The police are now looking lor that individual and promise him a warm reception. There were about twenty-five employes, mostly young girls, who were paid $3 to $5 a week for mailing. The mail was taken to New York. A few days ago they were dis charged with a week’s salary a« a bonus, the office was locked up and hasn’t been opened since. The New York post office authorities h4ving received complaints about the firm started in to investigate, but tha firm got wind of the matter and when the inspector* went to the New Y'ork office yesterday the bird* had flown. It is said they netted about 38,000,000 in receipts. FOUND OLD BLUE LAW. Butchers May Not Sell Meat After Ten on Sundays. The Benchmen’s Association, which is composed of those journeymen butchers who believe they are overworked in be ing forced to do duty after ten o’clock on Sunday mornings, has for a long time threatened to proceed legally against those "boss butchers" who keep their stores open after ten o’clock Sunday mornings. The association learned that a very old ordinance that has never been revoked declared against selling meat at 10 o’clock and when moral suasion proved of no avail it resorted to the First Crim inal Court and at the association’s in stance Polide Justice Hoos yesterday is sued summonses for three butchers. This morning he told them that were guiity of violating the city ordinance as charged and after suspending sentence told them to observe the law hereafter. The de fendants were Charles Lau, of Grove and Second streets; Henry Doreher, of Fifth and Coles streets, and Charles Kolin skie of Twelfth and Grove streets. The complaints were made on behalf of the Benchmen’s Association by William Ul rich, of No. 112 Coles street, and George McCormick,. of No. 1J014 Coles streets, members of the association. Mr. Ulrich said this morning that the association would this winter try to hove a law placed on the statutes that would contain the points of the old city ordi nance.

A very interesting discussion in home cooking versus prepared food was held by the Home Department of the Woman's Club yesterday afternoon in Hasbrouck Institute. Four papers, two on each side, started the food ball rolling, and an open discussion fairly made it spin. The first paper, written by Mrs. D. P. Holcomb, was read by Miss A. D. Fuller, in the writer's absence. In it Mrs. Hol comb laid stress not only upon the im portance of well cooked food, but of bringing up the girls to a thorough knowledge of scientific cooking. “Every young woman who expects to marry,” said she, "should make it her business to learn housekeeping with a gas range and with or without a servant. The time is coming when food as well as clothes must be fitted; when it will not be a question of taste but of digestion. The subject grows and woman must grow with it. We need more education along the lines of living. In prepared foods more than half the nutriment is gone. Bought cooked ham may be eaten; so may dog crackers. No housewife should refuse to give so much thought to food when it means so much to health and happiness,'' Mrs. Spencer Weart, In opposition to home cooking, upheld the convenience of the delicatessen store, “where one can get a nice cold luncheon for very little." “I come from the Fifth Ward,” an nounced Mrs. Weart, “and most of the homes In the Fifth Ward don’t use pre pared food. From the constant change in cooks I should say they didn’t get their food prepared. Think how one feels to have the odor of home cooking rise slowly but surely to the upper chamber before dinner is announced. Iti takes one’s ap petite away. Besides, all home cooking is neither good nor healthful. Think of j the vegetables and fruits we could not have were it not for prepared food, and what would we do without condensed milk?” Mrs. M. E. Johnson leaned just a little to both sides. She thought housekeepers could not get along without some pre pared foods, but stood up for home cook ing as a whole. The question could be settled, she said, only by an exclusive diet of either. She did not know about the home side, but she did not think man could exist long on prepared food ex clusively. Its evil effects had been ex- ■ pc-rienced in, the army and on shipboard, i and shorter voyages were being made in 1 consequence. Some organic disease was usually the result of such an experiment, j Mrs. James Edwards did not believe in ! woman wearing herself out over the kitchen, range when she could gain so much mind improvement by spending less time at her cooking. A woman might buy a delicatessen supper, she thought, and utilize the time thus saved in good wholesome reading. Besides, some loved housekeeping, some hated it. Some coul^d use judgment, some could not, and it was much healthier to use baker’s bread than ; the heavy hpme-made stuff so often eaten , Without a murmur because it was home made. She had visited a factory where j foods were prepared and claimed more care could not possibly be used at home. In the discussion which followed the matter of expense was brought out, es pecially in the matter of water ices, where the cost of making was less than one third that of buying. But there were other things to balance this, and the discussion might still have been In pro gress had not the chairman, Mrs. G. R. Hough, made a timely call for the vote, j Home cooking won by twenty to twelve. I though many voted both ways, and then, as it was nearly six, they all stepped round to a neighboring bakery to buy “something for supper." Mre. Dean read a very interesting paper at the opening of the meeting on “Modern Conveniences,” in which she described the up-to-date house, with not only its conveniences but its elegant fix tures of glass, silver and often gold. CORPORALS REDUCED A number of corporals of the Fourth Regiment were reduced to the ranks last night. Corporal Gumare of Company 13 was reduced for neglect of duty.
