Blackguardly Journallam.
No mort blackguardly exploit of the
yellow newspaper* has been forced on the
public attention of late than their Insist
ent efforts to ascertain and publish the
identity of the two ladies who were hurt
in an automobile accident at Yonkers last
week. These ladles, for reasons of their
own, desired to keep their names private.
The hospital authorities very properly
acceded to their desire.
But the butsards of the New York
“World” and "Journal” could not rest
contented. First they dragged in the
names of two actresses, who had abso
lutely nothing to do with the matter. The
discovery of their error did not shame
them, and now they give out the names
of two other ladies, who may or may no:
be the parties.
It does not matter whether these new
names are the right ones or not. It is an
infamy to publish thorn. It is all tne
more an infamy because the law will not
,reach it. It is the sort of infamy which
•ought to be avenged with a horsewhip

X press despatch Hero Boston an
nounces that the Rev. Charles F. Idols
of Jamaica Plain, a Unitarian clergyman
who is well known for his political ac
tivity. Is circulating a remonstrance
against the proposed appropriation of
*100,000,000 to enlarge the navy of the
United States. The paper is being well
signed. Noting that the new estimates
auurrt to an average cost of over *6 for
every family in the country, the remon
srrance says:—
Half of rhis sum applied to educa
tion would support 3:000 manual-train
ing schools at nearly $10,(KO apiece,
throughout the United States. We be
lieve that it If a needltoo extrava
gance t<? take for this purpose any
thing like $100,0010.000 out of .the pockets
of the people, most of whom never
saw a warship. We hold that the
maintenance of a vast machinery or
war is hot only a serious burden upon
the people, but a positive menace to
the peace of the world.

generate spirit of modernity that we have
on record. The roan who opposes the de
velopment of the 'National maritime
■power is neither manly nor a patriot.
He is e puling creature whoe>e Influence
would reduce the country to a state of
utter sordidness at home and impotence
abroad. When the American people
cease effort to keep their navy up to a
level with those of other nations of equal
size, American liberty, pride and progress
■ will be at an end.
The argument a a to schools is illogical
and absurd. Are there no thing? in the
world worth cultivating save schools?
Are schools the only educating Influences
that the nation possesses?
The true man cannot fail to eee that in
its influence on character the Navy of
the United States is equally even more
supremely beneficial than the school sys
tem, standing as it does for honor,
courage, enterprise, efficiency, .patriotism,
devotion to principle—everything, in a
■word, that goc3 to elevate humanity.

AMUSEMENTS.
Bijou Tknatra.
Those who have Been “Arfiaonn” con
cede that Augustus Thomas has drawn
his characters and situations much as
Frederick Remington draw’s his pictures
of the West with broad, bold strokes,
that cut sharp outlines and mean chaiw
acter in every dash, angle and. curve.-el
Plays that are along the same lines ni
the teachings of the church are few ana
far between. “TheW&slunteer Organist'
is just such a drumti and as the Re'.
Howard Sturgis has s^id, the Lie between
church and stage is made the more se
cure by this beautifu^play.
It tells a story that few, if any, dra
matists have hitherto handled in a man
ner that is both pleasing to its hearers
and unobjectionable to the clergy. The
character of the young minister is indeeu
a strong part and its portrayal by the
gentlemen in whose hands it is is a deli
cate bit of art.
Many times Jt has b?en undertaken to
introduce a man of the cloth in the
drama of today, but as earnest as the ef
forts might be there has invariably been
something that was objectionable or
overdrawn, and it had remained for Will
iam B. Gray to construct a part for a
dominie that ie absolutely flawless—so
much so, in fact, that he is almost
daily the recipient of communications
from pastors who were charmed with the
part of the ejjjige preacher and the grand
moral of the play, which is the reclaim
ing of a man. ^
This man having fallen, through drink,
to about as,-low a position in the social
scale as woulil seem possible, lias the
eyes of'fcis hea^t and soul opened before
U is too late. The veil that has obscured
from his vision all that Is good and noble
is gradually lifted and the man, who
proves to be the volunteer organist, is
made to see the folly of his ways.
As a grand moral lesson no play of lat
ter days can offer anything in compari
son, It is sublime, impressive and is car
ried In one'* memory for many a day af
ter witnessing it.
The entire cast, and it is an unusually
large one, was carefully chosen.
The scenic and electric effects are, to
say the least, startling and intensely re
alistic, being exact reproductions from
photographs taken around Cambridge,
Vt., where the scenes of the play ar9
laid.
Aandomy of Mule.
“A play of absorbing interest" is the
description given of "Human Hearts."
one of the kind which never seems to
grow old. It was first-produced six or
Seven years ago and frequent repetition*
only seem to have enhanced us value a.-:
a drawing attraction. The story is a sim
ple one of love and devotion to duty,
who is a blacksmith in a small village in
the Arkansas Hills. Through the
machinations of a scheming villain he is
unjustly accused of a horrible crime, is
convicted and sentenced to serve a term
of year* in States prison. Of course in
the end it is discovered that ne is inno
cent and oil his wrongs are righted. T'v;
location bf the play admits of superior
opportunities in the way of scenic dis
play, of Which the management Is said to
have taken every advantage. l\ is prom
ised that a more than ordinarily capable
company has been engaged for its pre
sentation.
“Human Hearts" will be the attraction
at the Academy of Music next week. A
New Year's matlrtee will be given Wed
nesday and also the usual Saturday mati
nee.

KNUIHE CHRISTMAS CHEER
Host and Guests Unite in
Paying One Another
Pretty and Season a*
ble Compliments.
Every Christmas eve Mr. Andrew J.
Corcoran, the windmill manufacturer of
this city, gathers his friends and em
ployes around them and gives them a
taste of old fashioned Christmas cheer.
Tuesday evening last saw this done for
the twenty-sixth time. The gathering on
former occasions was at the factory on
Jersey avenue, but, this time Mr. Cor
coran selected the Hotel Washington, the
large dining room of which was taste
fully decorated with flags, evergreens and
drawings ■of’ work accomplished in the
factory. Mr. Corcoran's guests were as
follows:—Mayor Hoos, ex-Congressman
Thomas MeEwan, James G. Hasiting.
Frank Stevens, W. J. Talt, W. R. Star
red, William Barr, Henry Dickinson, C.
H. Henry, W. J. Huxley, W. A. Malliet,

When the coffee and cigars were served
Mr. Robert Q. Corcoran, youngest son of
:he host acted as toastmaster. Introducing
the speakers in graceful terms. Major V..
K. Pangborn, the first speaker, was pre
sented as the only man that licked Dewej.
• The Bright Side of Life." was the
Major's topic and he instanced Mr. Cor
coran's honesty as a proof. He, he said,
made things blighter for liis men and in
the end secured happiness for hiraseiJ.
Referring to Mr. Corcoran, the Major said
that he had made a conspicuous success
of his business and had made men satis
fied with their position. The speaker said
so many pretty things about Mr. Corcoran
that the latter blushed at the. praise.
Mr. M. J. Sweeney then recited "The
P.rakeman and Paradise," and Boh Mc
Donald told some of his funny stories.
Mayor Edward Hoos, who on rising to
reply to "Jersey City as a. Manufaeturing
Centre.” was' loudly cheered. He compli
mented Mr. Corcoran on his unique feast.
It was a happy mingling of men of ail
kinds and professions. Jersey City, his
honor said, was the seventeenth largest
city in the Union and possessed exception
al facilties for manufacturing interests.
It had great railroads running into it, had
excellent police and fire systems, good
schools and good residences. He sug
gested that the. Board of Trade should
spend money In calling public attention to
the advantages possessed by Jersey City.
Counselor W. H. Speer and Mr. Thos. Me
Ewan having spoken In laudhtory words
about Mr. Corcoran the distinguished host
rose. Cheer after cheer greeted him and
the spontaneous welcome deeply affected
him.
Mr. Corcoran saia ns w*us un^mcu
welcome his workmen and guests. “To
night,” he continued, “Jack is as good as
his master.” (Laughter and cheers). He
praised hts workmen, who, he said, could
always be depended upon. For good hon- j
est work he had the men. No bad work
ever went out of his factory and that was
a proof of the honest machanics he em
ployed. .
“Chief Murphy,” said Mr. Corcoran,
“never arrested a Corcoran employe (loud
laughter) In seventeen years except one
man who struck his wife and that ended
his career with me. I made up my mind
when I became a boss to do certain
things and these I have accomplished.”
Mr. Corcoran to each employe gave an
envelope containing a substantial Xmas
gift. His bounty foots up Into the hun
dreds of dollars every year. Before part
ing he shook hands with each man and
wished him a Merry Christmas. This
closed a singularly pleasant evening.
MRS. CHARTRAND’S DAY
Desire for Her Children Her
One Thought.
While the strains of singing and instru
mental music accompanied by loud laugh
ter and shouting were coming from every
ooridor of the County Jail yesterday as
the prisoners celebrated the. day a little
woman sat within her oeli la Ward No. 6
taking no part in the merriment. In fact
she seemed totally oblvious to It.
Outside In the corridor on which her cell
open/ the other women prisoners were en
joying themselves with song and jest.
Once when Warden 'Sullivan passed
through the ward to see how his compul
sory .gyests were enjoying themselves,
the little woman, thin almost to emacia
tion, appeared at the door of her ceil. Her
pale face' looked towards him pleadingly.
Tears filled her eyes as she said:—
"Warden, please let me see my chil
dren.” , .
T,he sounds of merriment in the corridor
ceased. All eyes gazed pityingly at Mrs.
Vertoedofa "Chnrtrad, the s’ayef' of her
husband. The deal for which She was
theie' was forgotten in the sympathy for
her'condition and the tenderness uf her
appcttl. Not a few coarse gingham aprons
went/io‘,the eyes of women calloused to
the world's opinion.
These Were the first and only, words
spoken, by Mrs. Chartrand during the day
and the Warden replied In a husky voice
Impairment of hearing robs one of many |
of the Joys of life, exposes to danger, InT ,
terferes with capacity for usefulness,
limits ability to transact business and ;
earn a living. Many annually abandon j
their plans, ambitions and hopes on ac- I
count of loss of hearing.
in nearly every case of partial or com- |
plete deafness there Is another feature
that to many is more troublesome than
the difficulty of hearing—the distracting
head noises. These make such an Im
pression on some as to almost drive them
insane. The everlasting bussing, ringing,
snapping, nimble or roar, distracts them
by day and prevents rest at night.
Nine cases out of ten of head noises
and progressive hardness of hearing are
due to catarrh of the middle ear or of the
tube leading from It to the throat.
It should be understood and constantly
borne In mind that to restore the hear
ing and silence the distracting noiBes a
treatment Is required that will allay In
flammation In the eustachian tubes, re
duce the congestion and swelling and stop
the secretion of mucous so that the-tubes
will be and keep open for the pas
sage of air into the middle ear. No lo
cally applied medicine will effectually do
this, only a searching constitutional alter- i
atlve and resolvent will cure catarrh In
the deep recesses of the head.
Two acquaintances of the writer were
run down and killed by the cars in one
! vear. Both had catarrh of the head,
! which had extended up the eustachian
l tubes, leading from the throat to the mld
I die ear, and were quite hard of hearing.
! In both cases the coroner’s jury decided
I that they came to their death because of
I inability to hear and heed signals that
were Intended for them, what happened
to them is of frequent occurrence and in
three cases out of four might have been
ore vented by the use of Stuart s Catarrh
tablets. These tablets cure all kinds of
catarrh. Thev can be bought at any drug
store for 50 cent* a box.
That Stuart’s Catarrh Tablets do effee
tuallv cure catarrh of the eustachian
tubes and the head noises and deafness
resulting1'therefrom is attested by the fol*
*°Mr»f Jane Barlow, the famous modiste,
gavs:—‘*I finally had to give up personal
attention to my customers, and in conse
quence many of them went elsewhere
I was in despair, for specialists seemed
powerless to help me. Stuart s catarrh
tablets cured me In just a little while so
completely that now I ,hear as well as
* A?my Surgeon S. C. BeferTy became so
deaf from catarrh that Me was forced to
resign his position and abandon his pro
fession. He says:—“Of course my inher
ent professional prejudice was hard to
overcome, but knowing the great bene
rit you had received, my dear General,
through the use of Stuart’s Catarrh Tab
lets, X used them. The great and almost
immediate relief I experienced, was truly
astonishing. I am now Entirely cured add
have no fear of the disease returning.
I go back to my old post next month.
Stuart’s Catarrh Tablets have done It,
do do It, will do It. Try them and be
convinced. They are for sale at any drug
store at 50 cents a box. It will put you
to verv little trouble or expense to prove
what thev will do for you. Send to F.

NEWARK, Dec. , 2U, IS*01.—George B.
Swuln, State Treasurer oi New Jersey,
j died suddenly yesterday at his home. No.
' 6j Lincoln Park, this city. He was strick
en with apoplexy shortly before noon,
j end lay unconscious until 4:80. when he
I passed away, surrounded by the.members
of his family: 7
Although Mr. sVain had not be'en strong
of late he appeared to be in excelled7
health and spirits up to the time of his
fatal illness. His sudden death is a great
blow to his family and a shock to th-j
community, in which he was held In the
highest esteem. He leaves a widow, two
! sons and three daughters. The widow is
a daughter of State Senator .Wlldrlclt.
since dead, of Warren county. Mr. Swain
was a brother a brother-in-law of Major
Carl Lentz. Chairman of the Essex Coun
ty Republican Committee.
George E. Swain was born in Warren
county on March' 6, 1885. When he was
a boy the family moved to. Mort is eouhty,
where he lived until after his father's ■
death. In 1852 he went to Newark,whiyh
remained his home up to his death, in
the year following his arrival there ne
became a cierk for George A- Van Weg
ener., a lumber dealer, and In 1865 suc
ceeded to the business with J. M. Ran
dall as partner. In 1875 the nrnt became
Swain & Jones, and continued as such up
to the present.
Mr. Swain was a stanch Republican,
voting for every Republican candidate for
President from Lincoln down to McKin
ley. In 1871 he was elected a member of
the Newark Board of Education, serving
in that body for twelve consecutive years,
during the last three years of which time
he was its president.
Governor Ludlow in 1881 appointed him
a member of the State Reform School for
Boys, at Jamesburg, in which capacity
he served for one term. In 1892 he Was
elected to the Trustee Board of the New
ark City Home for two years. By a Joint
meeting of the Legislature in 1894 he was j
elected State Treasurer to succeed George j
R. Gray, a Democrat, of this city, end j
was re-elected In 1897 and 1900. The salary
of the office is *6,000 a year. It will be
necessary for someone to be chosen for
the unexplred term, which ends on April
2, 1902.
Mr. Swain was vice president and direc
tor of the German National Bank of thiB
city and was interested in other local
financial institutions and organisations of
various kinds. He was an able financier
and an ideal of a good citlaen.
The sudden death of State Treasurer
Swain will make necessary the immediate
appointment of someone to succeed him.
The laws of the State do not provide for
an Assistant Treasurer, and there is now
no one with authority to sign checks or
conduct other financial transactions. The
Slate has something like 12,000, (Ad on de
posit in banks.
The incoming Legislature will not con
vene until January 14, and Governor
Voorhees will exercise his prerogative by
making an interim appointment. The
Governor said last night that he would
probably make an appointment today.
