IBIS PACER IS DEMOCRATIC IX PRINCIPLES AXD IS 1XDEEEXDEXT IX IIS VIEWS OX ALL LOCAL QVESTIONM. Republican Iniquity in Cape May. Hudson, it appears, ha9 not a monopoly of ‘'delinquent” Grand Juries and the wicked Democrats of this end of the State ere not the only Grand Inquisitors whom Justices of the Supreme Court feel it incumbent upon them to reprove for neglecting to do their "sworn duty.” Down in staid old Cape May, where the Infants take in the high and noble principle* of Republicanism with their mothers milk, Mr. Justice Hendrickson has found It necessary to give the Grand Jurors a "severe admonition” and summarily order them to consider some cases which they evinced a strong inclination to ignore. Strange os It may seem to those good people who cannot imagine how any thing that savors of political iniquity can be associated with the “Party of Moral Idea*,” the matter, which has brought upon the Republican Grand Jury of Cape ■May the censure of the court, is ballot-box stealing and bribery at the late elec tion, at which the county gave Mr. Franklin 'Murphy an increased plurality. "I am informed by the Prosecutor," said Judge Hendrickson, “that you have hot considered the cases of ballot-box stealing and vote bribery which were especially called to your attention." The open and braaen manner in which the Republican managers have bought tip votes and perpetrated frauds upon the ballot in South Jersey has long been a disgrace to the State. But nothing could be done to break up the evil. Nothing was to be gained by proceeding against the malefactor: for Republican Grand Juries, drawn by Republican Sheriffs who profited by the frauds, always protected th#m. It Is doubtful If Justice Hendrickson will be able to imprpve the condition existing in Cape May. The Republican managers have too much to lose to allow anything to prevent them from carrying elections by fraud and corruption or any other old way that may be necessary, and as the methods they pursue are in the eyes of their followers reprehensible only when utilised by the wicked Demo crats, they certainly will /not allow even a Supreme Court Justice to take from them their only means of retaining power. - I The Hudson River Tunnels. It is odd enough that just following Major . -K. Fangborn's lecture, before the j Cosmos Club, upon the resource* and possibilities of Jersey City, the whole sub- ^ ject should be brought upon the carpet, not as an academic topic of discussion but as a burning business question. This Is what the two great tunnel schemes which the Pennsylvania Railroad and the united traction systems of New York and Jersey City have brought about. Between them, they involve such radical changes in the circulation of traffic in this city that they may be said to make all over . again the business conditions which prevail here. ^That they will bring population to the State of New Jersey is certain; that they will bring population to the outlying section* of Hudson County is probable. But It i# quite doubtful if they will do the territory embraced in Jersey City today any good whatever. It is at least to be feared that they will encourage the new tide of New York's overflow to pass us by and seek more attractive or at least better advertised localities than this. Jersey City has, as Major Pangborn said, an Ideal location for a business city; but Mr. Joseph A. Dear, who replied to the Major at the Cosmos dinner, very properly pointed out that some features of the site were detrimental, from the residential point of view. To New Yorkers, our territory is best known by the Italian quarter which lines the Pennsylvania Railroad tracks or by the expanse of meadows which even yet must b* traversed before the trolley car voyager can reach the pleasant region* of the Hill. Then our community has been energet ically advertised, and Is still being energetically advertised In the wrong way. The "Evening Journal," which the New York papers copy extensively daily, represents the city and county as communities in which public officials are in alii- j ance with crime, and where the taxpayers are robbed wholesale by un scrupulous public servants. On the whole, we fear, the man who is moving from New York, if the trolley cars will whisk him from his place of business in the heart of New Tork to his home in New Jersey, fast and without change, will be apt to select any point, from Englewood to Orange or from Hackensack to Bay onne, rather than step off at the western end of the tunnel and take his chances in Dafayette or Bergen. As for the effect of the tunnel upon retail business, all one can say is that it will depend largely upon the population question. Beyond all doubt if popu- j latiun grows largely in the city some forms of business, all those concerned In food products, for instance, will develop in corresponding degree. So will petty" business of ail" sort, the sort that occupies small stores on secondary thorough fares, and alms to supply the accidental and Immediate wants of the public. But nothing short of a colossal development such as Brooklyn and the Harlem sec tion have undergone will serve to save the large retail business of Jersey Cfty, when quick transit places it in immediate competition with Sixth avenue. Huge population will always secure trade. The development of One Hundred and Twen ty-fifth street, New York, is proof of this. But no small growth will be apt to., mean anything to dur dry goods merchants or clothiers. Of course, if popu lation should absolutely stand still—not a very probable occurrence—the rapid route to New York would only intensify the harm that the quick cars and the TWenty-third street ferry have done in recent years. One phase of the outlook which seems to create alarm In some quarters Is the notion that the ferry service might be materially reduced when the two tunnels get into operation. Of course this i» nonsense. The Pennsylvania Railroad may run its ferries in part for the accommodation of travellers over its lines; but a moment’s thought will convince anybody that it does so at a loss. The fare from New York to any point on the road ia precisely the same as that from Jsraey City. In other words, it carries its train passengers over the ferry free. On the other hand, its local traffic Is enormously lucrative. If anyone will take the trouble to calculate the number of vehicles of all sorts carried over the river dally and will add' to the tolls charged for them the tens of thousands of three-cent fares collected, he will have no trouble In realising that there Is money In the ferry business per se, and that It will always pay the company to bid for tt handsomely by providing commodious, rapid and frequent boats. Of course, it la argued that the other tunnel will take considerable patronage from the boats; but wg do not think the effect will ever be felt. In the first place, the tunnel will provide no accommodation for vehicles or teams. In the second, a very large number of the ferry passengers aim for points within walking distance of the ferry houses. There will always be a great number who can make better time bv using the ferries than by being taken ‘roundabout via.the tunnel. In a wtfrd. tn* experience of other similar cases Is pretty sure to be repeated here that the creation of new transit facilities so increases the demand for, transit that new and old are taxed to their full capacity to meet the public needs. There is no exception to this rule since the first railway train started, and Is highly Improb able thit there will be any departtire from glmferat law In this case. It Is Impossible to leave this topic without a word of genera! reflection upon the vast development of human enterprise and energy which these two stupendous undertakings represent. The millions of money necessary to carry them into effect, the unthinkable combination of human.and mechanical agency necessary to perform the physical work would stagger any mind not keyed up to twentieth cen tury standards. The mere conception of such * work as a tunnel exceeding a mile in length beneath the bed of a mighty river would have been regarded as the dream of a demigod or a madman only a generation ago. The work proposed Is the greatest, we believe, of Its kind in tha entire world. As we have led ail hu man daring in spanning great spaces through the giddy heights Of the air, so H appear* w* are to show mankind the way in utilising the ^byaseaof the. earth in . the overcoming of natural obstacle*. In view of the afenele* that have taken thea* work* in hand, we ate forced to sccompttsned. There'cA be no reasonable doubt as to their success. The question then Is, taking this fact as a new starting point, what is to be the next achievement of human skill, and what Is the limit of what man may hope to do tn the way of mechanical progress. If we should con struct a statement of ratios In which the birch bark canoe was the first term and let us say Caesar's wooden bridge across the Rhine the second, taking the Hudson River Tunnel, the third, what might be the answer to that mighty theorem In units of Imagination and Intellect and courage and determination? Would It be anything less than a short cut through the centre of the earth from continent to continent? AMSUEMENT5. Aoademy of M«ito. “The (Secret Dispatch” has In It many very effective things done in a natural way. Those who see this strong play at the Academy of Music, where it will be presented by a strong company on Monday. December 16, and all that week, will find the above statement to be the truth concerning the drama. "1 he Secret Dispatch” is vital with true atmosphere, and it departs from the usual routine of the melodrama. It works up into strong climaxes, is rich in comedy incident and tells a simple story well. There Is none of the fierce blood for blood ridiculous ness, but rather it is a romantic drama of the Civil War written around a mat I ter of fact episode that occurred in Ohio. The second act, showing an outpoat of I the Union army, has a strong situation I particularly. There is much scenic ef-. fectiveness and the drama is presented by a good cast Van H. Kfnzie, who created the role of Martin Follett, the deserter, will play it here: He is an excellent ro mantic actor and the part suits him. Frederick Aiyn. Beatrice Ingram. Marie Kmzie, Eloise David. John Foster, George Whitman, Harry Todd and others mane : up the company presenting the play. The j play has received strong press commends- j tion in many cities this season. Bijou Theatre. A melodrama, in order to win public j favor, must-be replete with living char- , acters, vivid situations and powerful j climaxes. Let a play be without these attributes, it will full to keep up interest: it tires the auditor instead of enthusing him. But with rapid action and stirring situations, a melodrama becomes im mediately a great attraction for the thea tre going public. This is proven by the numerous plays which have either suc ceeded or failed3 during the past decade. Such as presented real lifelike characters, and good speedy movement have re mained favorites season after season, while those plays which lacked these qualities lived but a few weeks, after which they were relegated to the shelf never again to be resurrected.. A play which has all the requisites of a success ful melodrama and which has proven its . stability, is the new melodrama, "Roxana's Claimv” which will be present ed at the Bijou Theatre all next week. In it Joseph J. Dowling and Myra L. Davis represent real characters of the wild western mining country during the exciting days of the gold and silver boom. They are surrounded by all the charact ers and natural atmospheric products of Colorado of those days. The situation., in the play are numerous and follow in rapid succession. Murder and its reward, love and its blessings are the main theme of the play. —Jn the climaxes, such stirring auxiliaries are used, as a Gatling gun firing six hundred shot a minute, broncho horses, cowboys, desperadoes, U. S. troops and most thrilling of all, an exhi bition of marksmanship by Mr. Dowling, j In which he shoots a glass ball off the head of Miss Davis, with his back turned to her, and using a mirror as aid to him. An exceptionally good company sur rounds Mr. Dowling and Miss Davis, and the production is equipped with a full set of scenery, especially made for this play. Mr. Dowling and Miss Davis have just returned from England where their | play proved immensely successful during a six month tour of the provinces. Theatre. At the new Victoria Theatre last Tues day night Sadie Martino! and her com pany produced for the first time in New York a new three act play by Clyde Fitch entitled "The Marriage Game." and scor ed one of the most distinctive successes of the present season. Mr. Fitch, who is the most successful of our native dramatists, with a long list of previous metropolitan successes, among which “The Girl and the Judge,” "The Climber*;” “The Way of the World,” "Captain Jinks of the Horse Marines.” "Lovers’ Lane,” are at present most prominent In the public’s eye, nas drav.tv from the French of Emile Augier’s cele brated play, "Le'Mariage D’Olympe,” in evolving “The Marriage Game,” and th» continuation of the smart, witty and epi gramatic dialogue of the former and the forceful dramatic intensity of the latter makes “The Marriage GAme” one of the most brilliant and virile works that has been contributed to the American stag; lor many a day. In some respects the piece resembles “Zaza” and “The Second Mrs Tanquc ray,” but the characters are more strong ly drawn than in either of these plays, and the final climax much more intense. In fact the entire last act is Of su6h ab sorbing Interest and so splendidly enact ed that the most blase auditor is forced to forget the mimic, and for the time re alize the actuality. Jn the principal character Laay c«moy, Miss Martlnot has scored the greatest trlnmph; of her career, and her support ing Company Is one of the best seen In a Broadway production thiB season. The Victoria has been crowded to Its utmost capacity since the Initial performance and the reception of the play and players would seem to index a continuation of extraordinary business throughout the en gagement." ■' yWr ?'■ , In Ladv Camby Miss Martlnot has a part whidh tits her better than any she had appeared In In the past. She plays it skillfully and artistically, and invests play, and In contrast with the Intense episodes, there is in the plot and under lying its main interest a <telictoos and faithful picture of real old-fashioned English life in the country, which seems to carry across, the footlights into the minds of the audience an atmosphere of statliness. dignity and warmloving hu manity. The production is said to be one of the most elaborate from the point of view of scenic Investiture, gowning and appointments, which has yet graced a modern drama.

Promptly at two the two sessions of the Teachers’ Institute Association, held yesterday in Public Schools No&. 1 and 9, were called to order for the after noon’s programme. The attendance was somewhat less than that of the morning, as a number of the younger teachers, each thinking she would nev*r be missed In a crowd, escaped across the Hudson. The older teachers remained to be In structed. All the speakers did double work, except Superintendent Snyder and Director Mul vaney, and each was heard in obth schools. For Instance. Miss Miller, who spoke on “Nature and Child Life,” in the morning in School No. 1, Where the Kindergarten and Primary session was held, took the next trolley for No. 9, where she told the Grammar and High School teachers about "Agriculture and horticulture In Its Relation to School,' while Mr. S. C. Schaeffer, of Harris burg. did -a powerful lot of thinking and more talking. In the morning in School No. 9, he told the Grammah and High School teachers how to grade their think ing and think in grades, and was en titled to another “think” on things and In symbols.” in the afternoon at No. 1, Mr. W. H. Mace gave the same talk In both schools. No. 9 in the morn ing and No. 1 in the afternoon. Superin tendent Snyder and Director Mulvaney gvp athe addreses of welcome for Nos. 1 and 9 respectively in the morning, then quit. Mr. Mace opened the afternoon session in No. 1 by telling the “How to Study and Teach History." He did not believe in going to Rome or Greece for Ideas. He thought that history should begin with the story with which the pupil came in touch every day. Like charity It should ; begin at home and there was enough of romance , enough of the fairy tale in American history to hold the child's Interest. American history was full, he said, of opportunities for the ideal boy or girl. It was hard to teach beyond one’s own experience and the study of histgry was always a question of adaptation and Greecian history would come much easier later If good foundation of Ameri can history was laid in the primary de partment. • * Mr. N. C. Schaeffer tnougnt tne system of teaching children by symbols first all wrong. They should firBt be taught the real thing, then the symbpl. and then to associate the two. This was the value of the Kindergarten system. “Teach the child first to think In men tal pictures of real things,” said he, “and it is only a step to the higher mental ef fort of titinking in symbols.” ke told the story of the boy who. after bounding the State correctly, was asked to bound the schoolhouse and replied:— “The schoolhouse is bounded on the north by the roof, the south by the cel lar and east and west by walls." “That boy,” said he, “had learned his lesson from a map. He had never been taught from the real North, South, East and West.” Then he showed the Importance of teaching figures with an object lesson to avoid the mtstake of the teacher who, in teaching 3 plus 2 equals 5 always made the pupils draw the object until they for got the figures entirely. “Thus,” said he, placing some objects on the board, then in a more apologetic tone, “you see I am better at drawing my salary.” The audience is still draw ing on its imagination. In the absence of any one else; as she explained it, Miss Elizabeth Alleri of Ho boken reported on the. “Teachers Retire ment Fund.” "The Teachers- Entertain ment Fund,-1 as Principal Lindsey, who presided, by a slip of tongue or eyesight, called for. Miss Allen said She had no report with her, but would give it from memory in round numbers. At the close of the fiscal year. June 30, the fund had a principal of *60,000 out at interest; the membership dues amounted to 116.000 and the income from entertainments given THE OLBANSIN6 AND BBAUNO CURE FOB CATARRH is Fly's Cream Bairn )^»><|ul'vtiy"abl!Orbed.

Mrs. Eckis Stephenson of Salt Lake City Tells How Operations May Be Avoided. •The universal indications of the approach of woman’s great enemy, inflam mation and disease of the ovaries, are a dull throbbing pain, accompanied by a. sense of tenderness, and heat low down in the side with occasional shooting pains. On examination it may be found that the region of pain will show some swelling. This is the first stage of ovaritis, or inflammation of the ovaries. If the roof of your house leaks, my dear sister, you have it fixed at once ; •why not pay the same respect to your body? Neglect and the dreadful surgeon’s knife go hand in hand. How many thousands of our poor suffering sisters might have escaped the hospital and its dreadful experiences if they had only done as the lady whose portrait and letter we are permitted to publish. Ob, what more can we do to make women believe. MRS. ECKIS STEPHEXSOX, State Chairman Young Peoples’ Temperance Uniou, Malt Lake City, Utah. “Dear Mrs. Pinkham: — I suffered with inflammation of the ovaries and womb for over six years, enduring aches and pains which I none can dream of but those who have had the same experience. Hun dreds of dollars went to the doctor and the druggist. I was simply a walking medicine chest and a physical wreck. Sly sister residing in Ohio wrote me she had been cured of womb trouble by using Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound, and advised me to try it. I then discontinued all other medicines and gave your Vegetable Compound a thorough trial, Within four weeks nearly all pain had left me; I rarely had headaches, and my nerves were in a much better condition, and I was cured in three months, and thus avoided a terrible surgical opera tion.” — Mrs. Eokis Stephenson, 250 So. State St., Salt Lake City, Utah. gw. Another Operation Avoided in Philadelphia. “ DEAR Mrs. Pinkham : — Some time ago I was taken very sick with pains caused by internal trouble (ovarian) and was unable to attend to ray house hold duties. I consulted several doctors but got no relief. They advised an operation which I was almost tempted to undergo when I read in the paper of the wonderful cures Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound was making. So I began taking it and now after taking several bottles feel like a new woman. No praise is too great for it. It is woman's friend and no woman should be without it.” —Mrs. Lizzie Mh.neb, 1616 Taniata St., Philadelphia, Pa. Remember, every woman Is cordially invited to write to Mrs. Pinkham if there is anything about her symptoms she does not understand. Mrs. Pinkliam’s address is Lynn, Mass., her advice is free and cheerfully given to every ailing woman who asks for It. Her advice has restored to health more than one hundred thousand women. Why don’t you try it, my sick sisters ? » REWARD. — We have deposited with the National City Bank of Lynn, 86000, which will be paid to any person who can tiud that the a bore testimonial letters are not genuine, or were published before obtaining the writer’s special per mission.

For j the year they could expect an income of $20,000 from dues. At present the fund had a membership of 2,703 teachers, which was not quite 40 per cent., and they want ed all the teachers of the State, which would bring the yearly Income up to $40, 000. The Fund has received its legacy of $2.2S5.74 left by a teacher, Miss Sayre, of Salem. What pleased Miss Allen most, however, was the change of pub lic sentiment in favor of the Fund. It had been started in Hudson county, she said, and was now a State institution, , but she did not think it would be long 1 before it became a national institution, j This same report was given in School No. 9, besides an address on the ‘‘Political Ideas of Children,” by Mr. Earl Barnes, and Mr. Mace’s address on "How to j Study History.” WOOD AND WATER SUPPLY Wood and Water, or in other words, the forests and streams are today among the most important of the country's possessions. In the west they are indis pensable, the forests for lumber and for the protection of the water supply, and the streams for the reclamation of j thousands of acres of barren and almost j useless land .through irrigation. It has j been estimated that there are 75,000,000 j acres of so called arid lands west of the Missouri River which with the water now available, can be made richly productive and the seat of large populations. Thus in the west the streams, even more than the forests, must be considered of prime importance as home makers. In the east and west alike, and over all the country, the streams are rising yearly in import ance for water powef, and as towns and cities increase, for domestic supply as well. Rut with the streams the forests on the mountains and foothills means the perpetuation of the water supply, and the security of the water supply means in calculable development and benefit for all sections of the country. The results of the investigations of the U. a. Geological Survey, in its study of the water re sources of the country, have repeatedly demonstrated the increasing value of the streams. The forests, and the water re sources are so closely allied that they must always stand side by si'd in the de velopment of the country.
