A Merry Christmas,
merry Christmas to everyone in Jer
sey City! We wish It most cordially. At
this joyous season of the year we know
of no foes, except the foes of the general
good, and we will try to forget them until
Some of our fellow citizens are quite
mire of a merry Christmas without any
lurther effort on their part. There is our
good friend, Mark Fagan, for instance.

These gentlemen must certainly fee’,
merry over the surprises that are In store
ifor 4,950 of their neighbor*. Probably
gome of the prlae winners will feed merry,
too, that is if they know they are on the
list. And even the 4,!C0 or so of the de

everyone of them will believe down to the

will be the merriest town on earth when

merry because they look forward to the

been seen or heard of in this city. It will

be George T. Smith. He certainly ought
■to be.
Beside* the hilarity which the political
situation is calculated to provoke, there
is much cause for rejoicing in this com
munity at the close of this first year of
the new century. Fully ninety-nine per
cent, of our citizens tave work and pay
adequate to providing for their dally
needs. They are able to set forth Christ
mas cheer for their families, and to thar.k

efforts and not of charity. What 1* more,
the prospect of work and pay ahead con
tinues good. There is no cioud hanging

John Erickson's Conrage.
the report which we print tn another
column of the accident to the train of
which John Kriekson was engineer, yes
terday .rooming, shows that Jersey City
has a citizen and an official to be proud
of. Mr. Erickson stuck to his post in face
of death. and though he fortunately went
through the trial without injury, the cour
age and devotion to duty which he dis
played are none the less honorable.
It is a pity that a petty political revolu
tion Is to take Mr. Erickson from the
Board of Fire Commissioners at this time
His example could not but have a fine
effect upon the tone of the men enrolled
in the Department. Feeling that they had
their head a man who had actually
:ed his life to save others, they would
ays be stimulated to face courageous
the dangers which their’ calling m
Mr. Fagan might make a fine record for
himself by putting politics aside in this
instance and reappointing Mr. Erickson
Ills efficiency is quite equal to nis brav
ery. ___

Well, the level ground is there. It has,
at present, about all the railroad intersec

will not provide any more. Neither is it
easy to see how it will increase the de
mand for the meadow land. It is to be
merely an artery of passenger travel.
We are willing to concede that these

“Are You a Mason?" at tks Academy
of Music.
"Are Tou a Mason ?”a farce in three
acts, opened a week's engagement at the
Academy of Music last night with an ex
cellent company and it proved as grea*
a hit as it did in New York City, where
it had a long run. The performance was
excellent anil the andience was very larg ■
and appreciative.
The story In that of a young mail. Frank
Perry, who is newly married. His> wife
nlsiies him to follow the example of her
lather and become a Mason. While she is
on a trio lie has a good time, tu the an
noyance of the maid, who objects to lei
ting him in at 5 o’clock In the morning. To
cover up his indiscretions he tells his wife
that he has become a Mason and she is
forgiving, thinking his nights have been ;

Btoodgood, i has deceived his wife for
twenty years in the belief that he is a
Mason. He stayed out all nigh; once and
gave as lilii excuse that lie had been made
a Master Mason. Perry is afraid tb meet
Bioodgood because he lears tile deception

same boat. Their efforts to deceive each
other o{i meeting are most amu-hug. The
entrance injnjhe family of a real Mason
further complicates the situation. He is
given the hand of one of the Misses Blood

ceivers. The Bioodgood family skeleton
makes its appearance and this is used a<
a mean* of obtaining $2tMXX> from Blood

IHprge Fisher, who suggested the trick to
Perry, appears as the daughter of Blond

manager of a racy music hall is introduc
ed to further complicate the plot and a
would-be Mason is at the mercy of Blood
good, who puts him through a course of
most amusing sprouts. The situations are
very funny and particularly well done.
-The exceilence of the production is guar
anteed by the presence of such well
known comedians as Leo Dltrichstein, the
author of the piece: John C. Rice. Thomas
A. Wise. George Richards, Charles J.
Green. Charles Hatton, Charles Edwards,
Gertrude Whitty, Esther . Tittell, Sally 1

No one born In America could fall to
be interested in “Ariaona.” “Gus”
Thomas knew this when he wrote it.
Nqw, ‘'Gus" was once a fat reporter in
St. Louis who had what he called “a
balloon route”—offices of the justices of
the peace located in the garrets of sky
scrapers in their Infancy in Western
cities before modern elevators were pat
ented. He devised an umbrella signal
code and thus communicated from street
corners with the Justice Lehanes of that
day arid latitude. Having “covered” his
route, he would waddle like a duck into
the office and depositing his precious um
brella in a corner, in sunshine or rain,
would go to his desk in a manner that
would exasperate his city editor, who was
waiting nervously for “Gus’s" copy.
One of the brightest local newspaper I
men, who has spent a year on that bed
of sand and alkali and rocks, fighting
for his health, which means all to a man,
is about to return to his family 100 per

is due to return this Christmas week.

"Arlzdn^” is one of the great New York
successes of recent days. It sets forth
an American sense of honor. There are
many “thrilling situations,” and the
story is appealing. It was written at
a time when every soldier in American
uniform was looked upon as a hero. The
scenery is superb. The cast is strong ana
the biggest of audiences showed approval
by great applause.
It is a story of life in the vicinity of an
array post, almost beyond the pale of civ

men in Uncle Sam’s fighting service. No

the cast. Mr. John Drury as Tony Mos

Broadway Theatre.
Klaw & Erlanger’s mammoth produc
tion of the Drury Lane spectacle, “The
Sleeping Beauty and the Beast,” at the
Broadway Theatre, v New York. Is the
most timeley amusement now being pres
ented In New york. For the first time
In the history of the Americun stage there
is on view in the metropolis a genuine
English Christmas spectacle, an enter
tainment so popular in England at this
period of the yedr that It Is looked on
as an institution. .But while the Broad
way production presents all the spectacu
lar features of the London production of
the pieces, it differs very materially in all
its other aspects. The Englishman is sat
isfied with marvelously beautiful stage
pictures, grand] ballets, and ' processions
and ensembles presenting large numbers
of people. The American looks on these
simply as incidental to a performance,
attractive in themselves, but not, to his
mind, fulfilling all the demands of a suc
cessful amusement. For this reason
Klaw & Erlanger had the original book
of “The Sleeping Beauty and the Beast”
completely rewritten and incorporated
into it that quickness of'action and the
specialty divertisements so pleasing to
the American theatre patron. The result
of these changes arid additions is a story
that would pr'oVe a success eveh without
the marvelous scenic investiture ahd ar
tistically gorgeous costuming presented
during the progress of the performance.
Several people who saw the piece at
Drury Lane, and have witnessed it here
since it opened at the Broadway, say that
the Klaw & Erlanger production far sur
passes the original, not only in clever re
arrangement of the story, but also in the
improved way the scenic features are
handled. Klaw & Erlanger have especial
ly developed the humorous Interest,
which, interpreted by such clever come
dians as Harry Bulger, Joseph Caw
thorne. Charles J. Boss, John Hyams and
John Page, keep the audienece continu
ally keyed up to a high pitch of merri
ment. Special matinee performances will
be presented next Friday, the 27th Inst.,
and Friday, January 3. Seats are now
on sale.

Kubelik Recital at Metropolitan
Opera Hone*.
Jan Kubelik, the young Bohemian
violinist, who is arousing such enthusiasm
in New TOrk City, had the honor, last
Sunday evening, in breaking the record
in the point of receipts and attendance at
the Metropolitan Opera House Sunday
concert, and this, notwithstanding the
fact that the prices of seats and admis
sion were both raised for the only time
in the history of the house, over five
thousand dollars being taken In. No
artist, not even the great Paderewski,
has made such a record on his first
American tour, and Mr. Daniel Frohman
has every reason to be satisfied with the
success of his venture.
Saturday afternoon, December 28, Ku
belik presents a decidedly new and inter
esting programme at his recital in Car
negie Halt, all of his numbers being com
positions of the great Paganini, the
Italian master, who has been the standard
for violin work for years, and the ad

Changes in the Legal Pro
fession With the
Now Year.
Bedle, Edwards & Lawrence,
Northrop & Griffiths and
William G. Bumsted.
With the new year there will come im
portant changes in some of the leading
legal firms of this city. Old associations,
which have been maintained for almost
an entire generation, will be severed, and
old firm names which are as familiar al
most as the names of the streets, will
disappear and new ones will be seen In
their place. One of the most Important
of these changes will take place in the
First National Bank Building. The old
signs, "Wallis, Edwards & Bumsted”
and “Bedle & Lawrence’! w’lll be taken
down and in tbelr places svill appear
bright new “shingles" bearing the names
“Bedle, lid wards & Lawrence,” “North
rop & Griffiths” and “William G. Bum
The old firm of Wallis, Edwards &
Bumsted llrst appeared in July, 1879, as
Wallis & ’Edwards. It was composed of
Hamilton Wallis and William D. Ed
wards. Mr. Wallis is a son of the late
Alexander Hamilton Wallis who, at the
; time of his death, was president of the
First National Bank. He is a graduate
( of Tale and teas admitted to the New
| Jersey Bar in 1866. Mr. Wallis is also a
member of the New York firm of Wilson
| & Wallis.
i William D. Edwards is a native of this
city, a graduate of Hasbrouck Institute,
and an alumnus of the New York Uni
versity. He studied law with William
BrinkerhofT and was admitted to the Bar
at the June term, 187S. On May 1, 1888,
the firm was enlarged by the admission
of William G. Bumsted and in July, 1889.
it was further enlarged by the admission
of James t\ Northrop. Mr. Bumsted
| was admitted to the Bar in June, 1S79,
and Mr. Northrop was mailt- ari attorney
at the- November term of the following i
year. Mr. Northrop came from Connect!- j
out and served the las* six months of his I
apprenticeship with the firm of Wallis & :
uurms tne iweniy-cnree years or ies
existence the firm of Wallis, Edwards
& Bumstead has been one ot fhe most
prominent In the State of New Jersey
and has been connected with many of the
more famous causes In the history of its
jurisprudence. In May, 1S89, Mr. Edwards
was appointed Corporation Counsel by
Mayor Orestes Cleveland under the pres
ent city charter which went into opera
tion on that date. From the very begtn
' ning of his official, career Mr. Edwards
I entered upon a class of litigation which
I furnished some of the most celebrated
cases in the hooks of New Jersey. The
legality of the hew charter was Anally
ec:sailed and a long and vigorous litiga
tion followed. In this fight Mr. Edwards
'was assisted by Mr. Northrop, who was
the attorney of record, and had as asso
ciate counsel ex-Governor Leon Abbett.
Opposed to them were William Brinker
hoff, whom Mr. Edwards succeede-d as
Corporation Counsel, and Gilbert Collins,
now a Justice of the Supreme Court. Mr.
Edwards and his associates Were success
ful. The new charter was upheld and.
with the amendments made to it from
time to time by the Legislature Since
then, governs the city today.
- Another memorable victory which Mr.
Edwards won as Corporation Counsel
was the celebrated South Cove case,
which Is too fresh In the mind* of the
people today to need more than a pass
ing notice. How Mr. Edwards persistent
ly fought the Central Railroad E>f New
Jersey step by step through the courts of
the State up to the Supreme Court of the
United States at Washington and won for
Jersey City the valuable piece of water
front known aa the South Cove. The law
by which Jersey City receives an In
creased portion of the taxes paid by the
railroad companies upon property owned
by them in this State is to a great extent
the result of the determined and energetic
fight which Mr. Edwards made for "equal
It would be impossible in this limited
space to attempt to give even an Idea ot
the many celebrated cases In which this
old firm was engaged. There was the case,
of Ashley against the Delaware, Lacka
wanna and Western Railroad Company,
which several years ego was fought up to
the United States Circuit Court and at
tracted much attention. Ashley was a
colored man from Indianapolis who
traveled extensively on the railroads in
charge of chickens which were shipped
from "the West to the Eastern markets.
He was riding on the caboose of a fre ght
train in the northern part of this State
when the train broke in two and the rear
end ran backwards down a steep grade
into a train following. A valve of the
locomotive of the rear train was forced
out and the escaping steam scalded Ash
ley most horribly. Wallis & Edwards car
ried the case through to a successful Issue
and recovered about $8,000 for their client.
These same gentlemen had the case of
Ruele, the famous baseball pitcher,
against the National Exhibition Com
pany. Rusie had been engaged by the
company and the concern was manoeuv
erlng to keep him from playing with an
other team without paying him any
salary. The Exhibition Company being a
New Jersey corporation. Rusie employed
Messrs. Wallis. Eawards & Bumsted to
apply to the Court of Chancery for relief
and the matter was soon adjusted to his
entire satisfaction.
The famous Dale will case of . Passaic
Was another celebrated litigation conduct
ed by this firm. Sarah P. Dale Of Pater
son died leaving a will disposing of a large
and valuable estate. A brother, contested
the will and the matter wits vigorously
fought both in this State and Pennsyl
vania. The firm has represented the com
pany which is building the new water
supply for Jersey Cjty and Is counsel for
the Sugar House people.
The new firm into which Mr. Edwards
will enter will be composed of Joseph D.
Bedle, himself and Robert L. Lawrence.
Mr. Bedie Is the second son of the late
Governor Bedle and Is a graduate of H.-ts
brouck Institute and Princeton University.
He was admitted to the bar at the No
vember term, 1891, and became a member
oi the firm of Bedle, cMcGee A Bedle,
which was composed of his father. Gov
ernor Bedle, and the late Flavel McGee.
In 1893 Governor Griggs appointed Mr.
Bedle Judge or the First District Court
of this city, but his Increasing business
compelled him to resign the position re
cently. The old firm was counsel for the
Delaware, .Lackawanna and Weatern
Railroad and represented the North Ger
man Lloyd and other of the large steam
ship companies which dock In Hoboken.
Sir. ‘ ... .. ‘ ' " " *" ""
Lawrence came to this city from
Newton, Sussex, county, several years
ago. He was admitted to the bar in the
(November term, 1878, and was for aaveral
years a member pf the firm of Babbitt A

form a partnership with Mr. Northrop,
was a student in the office of "Wallis. Ed

firm ever since he wa« admitted to the

used in my family and as a tonic it is
excellent. I take pleasure in testifying
to its fine qualities.”
P. D. Barker, Postmaster of Mobile,

As the akin cover* the outside of the
body, so the mucous membranes line the
inside. Every organ, every duct, every
passage, jvery cavity of the body, is
lined by mucous membrane. These mu
coue membranes are liable from various
causes to become irritated or inflamed.
When this occurs it is called catarrh,
and catarrh may be located in the head,
nose,middle ear, throat, bronchial tubes,
or air cells of the lungs, liver, bowels,
kidneys, bladder, procreative and uri
nary organs. Wherever there is a mu
cous membrane, there oatarrh may be
To be sure, catarrh et these various
organa haa been known by different
names; that is, catarrh of the stomach
has been called dyspepsia, catarrh of
the kidneys, Bright’s Disease; catarrh
of the bowels, diarrhoea or dysentery;
catarrh et the procreative organs, fe
male trouble, and so on, and so on.
But our claim la, that these are all one

that eur remedy, Peruna, Is applicable
to catarrh of all of these various or
Parana is not a “cure ell”; it cures j ust
one disease—catarrh. But since catarrh
is able to fasten itself within the differ
ent organs of the body, so it is that Pe
runa cures affections of these organs.
But we insist that Peruna cures one dis
ease only We claim that Peruna is the
only internal, scientific remedy for ca
tarrh yet devised. We claim that ca
tarrh is a systemic disease; that is to
say, it invades the whole system. We
claim that Peruna is a systemic remedy;
that is to say, it eradicates catarrh from
the system. Catarrh is not a local dis
ease; Peruna is not a local remedy.
Since catarrh invades the system, only
a systemic remedy can reach it. This is,
in brief, our claim in assigning to the
disease—catarrh—our remedy, Peruna.
An instructive and interesting treatise
on catarrh in its different forms and
stages, will be sent free to any address
