All druggists refund the money if it fails to cure. E, w. Grove’s signature is an each box. 25c., TROLLEY TALK President E. F. C. Young, John D. Grimmins and David Young Confer. ALL ABOUT STREET RAILWAYS Several Innovations of In terest to the Public Fully Discussed. President E. F. C. Young, Messrs. John D. Crimmins and David Young, of the executive board of the directors of the | North Jersey Street Railway Company, had a long talk this morning about many matters of interest to the public via the Traction Company. There are several innovations under discussion which will be highly beneficial to the travelling public. First among these is the question q/ more power. So rapidly has the business of the company advanced that the officials see that lines must be advanced and more care provided for public travel. While the present power house on the w'est side of the Passaic River is sufficient for the present demands, at the rate travel and business is increasing will be totally in adequate in a year or two or even less. Townships are building up on the line of the Traction Company’s roads and new branches are becoming necessities. To meet these requirements an addition to the present power house is imperative and the company have now under con sideration plans for an extensive building. When this is finished there will be ample power for all the new lines projected. More power, extended lines necessarily involves the question of more cars, quicker connections and a general re arrangement of the schedule. On main lines a shorter headway Is undoubtedly desirable and this will mean additional cars. The Executive Board are now fin ishing plans which will give the facilities so much desired on every branch of the . system. It may be soon that the company win i imitate the Brooklyn Railroad oCmpany and run, during theatre hours, a special | drawing room car. These will leave the j Bergen Point end, West Side avenue j junction and other prominent points in thickly populated districts for places downtown. During the hours of 8 to 9 in the morn ing downtown from outlying points extra ears will be run for business people and again In the evening from the P. R. R. ad Erie R. R. Co.,’s ferries during the hours of 5:30 and 7 P. M. cars will be started at very short intervals. It is the purpose of the company to meet in every way the demand of the people for plenty of car accommodation and rapid transit. SMALLPOX SPREADING, Of the 39 Cases in November Only Four Were Fatal. The epidemic of smallpox in Hudson 1 county Is gradually spreading. During the last few days nine new cases have been reported to the County Board of Health, as follows:—Thomas Carlan, No. 1004 Newark avenue; JicGown, age twenty-one, of No. 244 Wayne street, and three children named Fitzgerald, at j No. 189 Wayne street. Two cases were reported today from No. 13 East Twenty-second street, Bay- | onne. They are a child named Cokey, age three years, and another named , Kohler, age four years. Two cases were reported yesterday from Hoboken. They are two children of the family named Sehen, and live on Park avenue, near Fifth street. The nine latest victims have all been sent to the smallpox hospital at Snake Hill. The record for the month of Novem- I ber was forty-three cases and one a vari- | loid. These have ail been under treat ment since the first outbreak of the epi demic. Out of the thirty-nine cases of confluent smallpox that have been treat ed at the smallpox hospital there have : been four deaths. The last victim was Mrs. Martin of No. 753 Tonnele avenue. She died Sunday, her case being eompli- | cated because of approaching maternity. The treatment resorted to by Drs. Con verse and King has kept the death rate down to nine per cent, of all the cases so far cared for. In the recent outbreak in London, England, the death rate was a fraction over , fifteen per cent. The good showing made by Drs. Con verse and King is the subject of much ; commendation. At the meeting of the Board of Freeholders last night letters were received from William McCloskey of Kearnv avenue, Greenville, and from his friends thanking those physicians and the Board and the trained nurses at the hospital for the attention given to him : while afflicted. __ GGAND JURY REFORM Bar Association Diseuss a Bill to Bo Sent to the Leg’s"ature.

ECCLESIASTICAL BLACKMAIL Glad Hia Church Has Out grown Grab Bag Finan ciering for God. That a church supper may gain unlim ited success both socially and artistica.ly was proven last evening by the Ladles' Home Society of the First Presbyterian Church, at their annual supper. In their parlors. Under the soft, ruddy glow of fifty or more red-shaded lamps, waited upon by a host of matrons and maids, nearly four hundred members and friends of the congregation sat down to feast up on oysters, turkey, ham, tongue, pie, cof fee, ice cream and other delicacies sup plied by the society. It was by far the largest attended supper held in the church in years as well as the most successful. Such a rush had not been expected, but the society was assisted by an able corps of young ladles and everybody was nice ly served. Among the ladies who presid ed at the tables and their assistants were;—Mrs. Willard Fisk, president; Mrs. W. Dickinson, Mrs. Charles B. Gray, Mrs. Arbuckle, Mrs. Charles Miller. Mrs. D. Merritt, Mrs. C. D. Ridgway, Mrs. Manning Stires, Mrs. Sldman, Mrs. Wal ter Rae. Mrs. G. W. Case, Mrs. G. V. H. Brinkerhoff, Mrs. Charles Herr. Mrs. C. Howard Slater, Mrs. Warren Dusenbury, Mrs. John Staats, Mrs. Campbell, Mrs. Gebbert, Misses Edna, Bessie and Ger trude White, Nellie Holbrook, Ramsey Purdy, Jessie Perry, Halsey, Chapman, Retter, Smith, Bowman, McNaughton, Hazel Clarke, Mamie Brown, Glassey. Evarts and Mrs. J. A. Dear, Jr. After supper speeches followed the satisfying of the Inner man and woman. , They were led by the Rev. Charles Herr, | pastor of the church, who, after cracking the expected after-dinner jokes, spoke strongly against church fairs. He was glad, he said, that the day had passed when his church—the House of God should be turned into a house of mer chandise, and he hoped ail churches I would soon outgrow this habit of helping the cause by 'ecclesiastical and low appeals to the grab bag.” "That is one thing,” said he. “I think we should be thankful, for—that we have outgrown this grab-bag habit of finan ciering for God.” Dr. Herr then most flatteringly intro duced Mr. George F. Perkins, Jr., who cleverly responded to a toast, “The In ner Man.” Mr. Charles Ridgway, the next speak er, gave a most interesting sketch of the church and its record for paying up, since it started forty-five years ago in a little home on Storms avenue, and called upon Mr. Dusenbury, one of the charter members, to confirm his statements, i Never, Mr. Ridgway affirmed, had there been a cism or division in the church, nor had she had more than two pastors, Dr. French, whom she lost through death, and the present pastor, Dr. Herr. Mr. Harry Lauderbough responded to a toast. “The man without a church home." No man, he said, was without influence. Even the wooden Indian in front of the cigar store was put there to entice cus tomers inside. Mr. Maning Stires. Jr., responded to a toast “The up-to-date young man.” “I think,” he began, "the up-to-date young man is a woman.” Then taking a ! more serious vein he went on, “The up-to date young man must have physical, mor al and mental strength. We nave an up I to-date young man as chief of our nation. New York has an up-to-date young man as her chief executive. In Mr. Ridgeway’s j history he forgot one thing—tne Herr Bi 1 ble class—that is where you will find the 1 typical up-to-date young men.” 'The next Speaker Dr. Herr introduced as “a lady whose subject would be mere man and whose acquaintance with the Woman's Club had given her unparalleled opportunity to study him, Mrs. George W. Case.” Mrs. Case rose to the occasion, and showed herself not only a lady but an ex cellent Presbyterian. “Being a woman,” said she, “I shall take the advice of some one much older and wiser than I, and keep silence in the church.” Mr. John A. Walker responded to the toast, “Our Nation.” America was a young giant, he said, and the eyes of the world were upon her. She was not I only the centre of manufacture, but was ! fast becoming the centre of the money I market. In the good old days gone by 1 the clergyman was the first man in the | land. Later he was succeeded by the lawyer, and he, in turn, by the politi cian: but today it was the man of indus try who led. In introducing the final speaker, Major James B. Pond, Dr. Herr gave him a good natured little rap about desiring to see his (Dr. Herr's) sermons printed in full Monday mornings, and his (the Ma i jor’s) irregular attendance at church. ; The Major did not see why he had been ' called upon at all unless the toastmaster had arrived at that stage in the game when any old thing would do. He was proud of the church, he said, and liked to* take his Sunday callers for a walk j round the block to show them what a swell Presbyterian church they had. Though his place of business was in New York, he was proud to sign himself from Jersey City, he had such good neighbors: and he challenged any city to produce a handsomer set of women.” The speeches were delightfully Inter spersed with vocal selections by Mr. Harry Case, of New York, accompanied by Mrs. Frank Cavalll. of this city.

Miss Tereea Sack, as she is known to the authorities, who lived at No. 233 Ninth street when last seen, has suddenly left town and a horde of complainants are eagerly searching for her to charge her with swindling them out of thousands of dollars worth of goods. Miss Sack was arrested a week ago on almost a hundred complaints made by 'wholesale merchants of New York City, who said that the woman had opened a store at 'No. 264 Newark avenue, where she did a general dry goods business. Sue stocked the store with goods re ceived on. credit and sold them as fast as she could and, the complaints say, never made any payments to those from whom she bought. Isaac Goidenhorn was her counsel and when the case was called for a hearing on Tuesday he presented to the court a certificate signed by two physicians in which it Was set forth that Miss Sack was too ill to appear in court. The case was adjourned then for a week. This morning 'Mr. Goidenhorn appeared before Justice Hoos in the (First Criminal Court and explained that his el'ent had disap peared. The police are now looking for her and Mi. Goidenhorn is helping them to find her. __ “A Thief fer a Relic.” It is an interesting circumstance, says the Westminster “Gazette,” that in one of the pockets of the pair of breeches worn by George II. at the battle of Got tingen, which are to be sold in a London auction room, there was found a letter from someone signing himself “A Thief for a Relic and Not for Value," and re turning a button stolen when the article of clothing in question was on view at an exhibition at Warrington in 1841. matters of fact.
