A Tioiaue Presidential Order. 'President Roosevelt has issued an order that the Mail Carriers' Association and its members must "keep their handa ctt the measure now pending in Congress pro viding for an Incrtae* in their sa ary of £00 annually." It is an oppressive and unjust order, and it showa how little sense of fair play is embraced in Mr. Roosevelt’s make up. Why should not the letter carriers use S'll legitimate efforts to influence legis lation affecting themselves. They will as suredly never get anything without doing so. It would appear ae If the President's order was tantamount to a denial of tne constitutional right of petition. The only alternative for the letter car rier*! is the employment of a regular lobbyist to look after their interest* Perhaps Mr. Roosevelt would like that better. , Tks Baggage lagaisltlan Lew We observe with great satisfaction that the ladies of Washington have presented a memorial to Congress protecting against the infamies of the present baggage in- ■; apection system. They very properly de clare that It Is Insulting, outrageous and Indecent. In fact, there 1s no other country in the world which would endure such villain ous treatment by its government. Russia is in a constant stai.e of dynamite agitation on account of acts of governmental oppres sion no more flagrant, and having the Justification that they are designed to check riot and sedition, whereas our out rage# on our citizens have no purpose in the world wave to increase the profits of s favored class of tradesmen. It is a disgrace to civilization that re spectable men and women should be sub jected at the port# of the country to treatment similar to fat wh c i is inflicted on convacts upon their admission to State Prison. The Impertinence of the ques tioning, the savagery of the search, the Contempt of property rights In the tum bling of the contunts of trunk# about a fl’.tby pier, the exposure, the fatigue, the delay, the humiliation, ell make up a sum total of atrocity that would excite tor rents of oratory if It were practiced by General Kitchener against the Boers. Steflet am Biskep Patter The Rev. James P. Stoffiet preached a sermon oft Sunday upon what 'he is pleased to call temperance. It was chiefly remarkable for an utterly Int.enperate ,it tack upon Bishop Potter of Ne w York. According to Mr. Stofflet’s standard no body is entitled to freedom of opinion, utterance or action. He assailed the Bishop as the agent of the devil, and he proclaimed that the time had come when Christianity Weis bound to make a con certed 'movement and crush all liquor selling. Bishop Potter will probably survive Mr. B'.offlet's attack. He has some reputation as a thinker and a philanthropist which sane men and women will not be apt to Ignore at the instance of a very young man, whose title to pose as moral censor over hi# elders Is not part’culaiiy dear. However Mr. Stoffiet may deceive h'm set-f, the tendency of the day. both in and out of religious circle*. !» very far from keeking prohibition of all use of liquor. It is not too much to say Ihat the cause qt total abstinence Is rapidly on the de cline. The prohibition party could not today muster one-tenth of the vote that tt did fifteen years ago. The tendency today is towards enlight enment and liberality. Both tend towards temperance. The former promotes the temperate u*e of liquor as distinguished from the Intemperate nbus* of If. the other promotes rhe temperate u»s of It as distinguished from the intemperate prohibition of It. Inside twenty years. Intemperance will have almost totally disappeared and total abstinence will be on extinct deluelon. Senater Hndspetk's Bills. While the Republican combination prompted by Prosecutor Erwin and headed by Assemblyman Hoffman are Engaged in maligning Hudson County and striving to rob bar people of their liberties, the Democratic Senator, Robert Hudspeth, quietly prepares a number of measures looking to the good of the com munity, and then unostentatiously intro duces them In the Senate. There were no ykyroeket* in the list of Mile which Ur. K/'dsneth proposed yesterday at Trenton, Catarrh Is a constitutional disease. It originates in a zcrofolous condition of the blood and depends on that condition. It often causes headache and dizziness, impairs the taste, smell and bearing, af fects the vocal ofgens, disturbs the stomach. It is always radically and permanently cured by the blood-purifying, alterative and tonic action of Hood's Sarsaparilla This great medicine has wrought the most wonderful cures of all diseases depending on scrofula or the scrofulous habit. " Hood's Pills are the best cathartic. but there was not one among them which did not operate towards economy, effi ciency. the convenience and the welfare of the people. This is the characteristic difference be tween a Republican- and a Democrat. Aa Extraordinary Vatarnn Aat. Mr. Stalter's bill providing that a vet eran once In office should hold on indefin itely, notwithstanding his appointment or election for a specific term. Is a curious example of political blindness. Mr. Stalter no doubt wishes to aid the vet eran, and he does not see that by the very extravagance of nls position he would really be hurting him. Obviously If a veteran were given per petual tenure of an office which ordinarily had a finite term, nobody would ever again appoint or vote for a veteran for such a position. Under Mr. Stalter’s bill, If a veteran were chosen Mayor or Street and Water Commissioner or Freeholder or were appointed City Comptroller or Corporation Counsel or any similar thing, he would hold on during good behavior and the people or the appointing official, as the case might be, would have their hands tied. The proposition Is simply absurd. It la useful only as showing what half-baked brains some of the gentlemen possess who are chosen to make laws for us. Tie Executive Mission. The proposal to extend the State House grounds and provide an official home for the Governor Is all right. It is to be hoped an impartial commission will be ap pointed to assess the value of the prop erty taken. With that proviso, the Idea is a good one. It is for the pleasure and dignity of the entire State. Will Record Resign Now. The ‘'Journal” announced last evening that Corporation Counsel George L. Record had returned to town. Probably he thinks the bribery Incident has blown over. Perhaps, too, he will resign as counsel to the Riparian Board, today. He said a month ago that he would consider the propriety of letting go one of his salaries about this time. Mayor Fagan’s veto of the employment of Allan L, McDermott to conduct the city's riparian cases, would seem to create a situation which must seem delicate even to Mr. Record. Aa Impatient Fake. The appearance of a "committee” of the Bergen Republican Club before Mayor Fagan to talk about trolley transfers, yes terday, was a ridiculous fake. Mayor Fagan hast about as much influence in respect to trolley transfers as the She it of Persia. Everybody in the combination yesterday knew this. But the plan was to give His Honor a chance to put himself on record on the subject In the hope that the voters may mistake t-he will for the deed and give credit to the G. O. P. for its activity in the interests of the dear people. A Contrast.

About three hundred people HOW BRHjBS WON Yesterday’s Republican Cau cus Was Brief, But Exciting. REEO DAZED BY RESULT Successful Candidate Heartily Congratulated on His Great Victory. [Special to “The Jersey City News."] TRENTON, Feb. 5, 1902.—After one of the bitterest contests ever waged within a political party Franklin O. Briggs of Trenton, as stated In these columns yes terday, was selected for State Treasurer by the Republican caucus by a bare ma jority of one vote. The vote was 32 to 31, and so close that the animosities and hard feelings which the contest engen dered are still rankling, and It will be many a long day before they are healed, If they ever are. The caucus was short and exciting. There were no speeches like at the Senatorial caucus the week bfore and the single ballot was quickly taken. Senator McCarter, who came back from Washington, where he went to see bmted States Senator Dryden sworn in, presided over the caucus and the newspaper men were admitted to the galleries. The coun ties were called for nominations and Mr. Elvins of Atlantic started things going by placing Senator Charles A. Reed in nomi nation. The other counties passed until Mercer was reached and Mr. Leavitt nominated Franklin O. Briggs, in what appeared like an effort at a speech. He spoke of Mr. Briggs’s position In the com munity as a business man and said that the prominent position which he occupied In the commercial world showed that he was eminently fitted to be State 'treas urer. Senator Hutchinson of Mercer, who haa been one of Mr. Briggs’s bitterest oppo nents, seconded the nomination of Mr. Reed. He said that the greater majority of the people of Mercer county did not want Mr. Briggs made Treasurer, and that the county was ndt an aspirant for the office. He them related the argu ment which he has been using all through the fight, that as the people repudiated Mr. Briggs at the polls the Legislature should not take him up and foist him up on them. The members of the Legisla ture learned some time ago that it was Mr. Hutchinson’s doing which defeated Mr. Briggs's for re-election as Mayor and hfs remarks carried lititle weight. Mr. Hoagland of Somerset also said a few words for Mr. Read, and Senator Gross of Union made a plea for him which appeared to many as an appeal for the Somerset Senator on tne ground that he needed the money the office pays. Mr. Cross argued that Mr. Reed had ren dered the party valuable services, for which he had received but small remnuer ation and it was but right when the op portunity presented itself that he should be rewarded. Warren, the last county, had no candidate, and many wondered what had become of the candidacy of El lis Meeker, the big, good natured ex-As semblyman from Union, who lent his name to the anti-spring election bill. -. was explained that Mr. Meeker had been In the fight for the purpose of paying off some old scores and doing all he could for Mr, Briggs. He succeeded in turning over to the Trenton mam several votes as the result shows were of much benefit to him. The voting began immediately and ran along without incident until Senator Mc Carter's name was called. The Essex man stated that circumstances had com pelled him to vote against his brother Senator, and the Mercer candidate had his support. He had paired with Senator Reed and on the understanding that the Somerset man would vote for Mr. Briggs he would rote for Mr. Reed. When the name of Mr. Miller of Union was called he promptly and loudly replied “Dryden,’’ and when the laugh which greeted his vote told him that something was wrong he appeared unable to determine what the trouble was. His colleague finally helped him straighten the matter out and he voted for Mr. Briggs. All the other sev enteen Senators voted for the Somerset man. As the voting proceeded and It be came apparent that the result would not be determined until the last vote was cast, -the Interest became intense and a deep silence fell upon the chamber, brok en only by the clerk calling the roll. When Assemblyman Wright of Burling ton cast the last vote for Briggs, giving him the office by one vote, the tension was relieved by a long drawn “Oh!” There was not applause such as that which greeted the selection of Mr. Dry den last week, and Senator Lee easily ob tained the floor. He said that the names of the two candidates sounded so much alike that perhaps the clerk had made some mistake in recording the vote. At the direction of the chairman the clerk read the names of those who voted for Mr. Briggs and they were found to be correct. The vote was for Briggs:—Senator Reed of Somerset. Assemblymen Joseph H. TI1 lotson and James W. Mercer of Bergen, Charles Wright and John G. Horner of Burlington, Lewis M. Cresse of Cape May, William J. Moore and Louis H. Miller of Cumberland, J.

WHEN disease attacks the ner vous system, the symptoms that at once manifest themselves differ in different persons. When the intricate and wonderful nervous sys tem is in perfect condition, ho man or woman is sick, except from infectious disease. Sleeplessness, dyspepsia, rheumatism, most of the weaknesses and ailments that exhibit themselves in different ways in men and women are now known to be only the local symptoms of the beginning of a diseased nervous system. It is no more possible to cure these afflictions by superficial treatment than it is to dam the Mississippi by a bar of sand.}The only effective cure for these diseases is the repair of nervous tissues! It has been absolutely proven that Paine's Celery Compound cures ner vous exhaustion in every aggravating form, as no other remedy in the world can, or does. In fact, it was by the urgent advice of the ablest medical authorities in this country that this A. Howland and Somers T. Champion of Monmouth^ Charles R. Whitehead of Morris, Henry W. Hoagland of Somerset, Frederick Miller and William F. Hall of Union—32. When the result was finally announced the Reed men seemed dazed. The Sena tor himself sat at his deak and looked straight ahead with a cold, hard look. The caucus adjourned and the members were leaving the chamber when Mr. Reed pulled himself together with an effort and moved that -the nomination be made unanimous. When this was carried Mr. Reed hastened to the Treasurer’s office and congratulated his successful rival. Mr. Briggs held an Informal reception and was enthusiastically congratulated by those about the State House and the Trenton Republicans, who look upon his election ns a great victory over the Gum mere-HancOck ring. No date has as yet been fixed for the joint meeting. Franklin Q. Briggs was born In New Hampshire, and in 1872 was graduated from West Point. He served in the army until 1877, when he went to Trenton to begin commercial life with the establish ment of John A. Roeblln's Sons’ Com pany. He served a term as Mayor of Trenton. He married a sister to the wife of B’erdinand Roebling. Mrs. Briggs’s father. Thomas S. Allinson, wsis the sec 1 rotary of State for New Jersey from 18J0 to 1SW. Mr. Briggs has resided in Trenton for the last twenty-four years, and has an extended reputation throughout the State - as a man of the highest standing. Early in January Governor Voorhecs appointed Mr. Briggs as State Traasursr ad interim. TRAVEL BLOCKED Slippery Condition of the Co-nj munipaw Avenue HIM Makes Trouble.

From the very first its formula was, and it is today, freely fur nished to physicians in good standing anywhere. No man or woman whose nervous system is not in perfectly healthy con dition can properly perform the work that,is his or hers to do. No person with shattered nerves can run .he race of life in competition with the healthy man.

"The Bostonians” have assembled a cast of singers which excels any they have ever presented.

Under the direction of Kiaw & Erlanger this company has again been lifted into prominence and “Maid Marian” promises to via with Its protagonist, "Robin Hood," in popularity. Grace Van Studdlford, the prima donna soprano, in the title role, has scored a triumph unequalled in years, and her charming stage presence and splendid vocalisation make her one of the salient features of the entertainment.
