WEDNESDAY, MARCH 12, 1902. 27, f* paper it Democratic in principle rt f it independent in ilt wests on all loca f« estoint. Mayor Fagan's Big ScKemei, Thfe new municipal administration ap pears to have gone bond mad, and if the Legislature gives sanction to one-half of its schemes, it will prove itself mad also. Mayor Fagan is only ten weeks In office, and already projects aggregating $1,600,000 to be fciA out of bond issues, with corre sponding increases in running expense, are among the settled plans of himself and his immediate coterie. Yesterday it leaked out that he had not been able to drag with him into this mad whirl of extravagance the older and more experienced officials of -the city. Seme even of ills own party refused to surren der their own sane judgment to help along his personal boom. But even this did not seem to give His Honor pause. On the contrary, yesterday afternoon, two more bills were introduced at Trenton placing an additional load of *550,000 upon the city and its taxpayer*. Of course, each of the Mayor's projects is good in itself; but it is plain that the city cannot realize them all at once. It is something like a man who has just moved from a fiat to a house of his own. He would like a conservatory and a barn and a horse and carriage and a steam yacht. But he usually has to wait, and get them at long intervals, however prosperous and progressive he may be. Jersey City has got a new City Hall and a new Library and a million dollars worth of schools, and various other improvements of a minor kind. No doubt she needs all the things that Mayor Fagan advocates; no doubt she will get them—in time. But It is to be hoped that enough discretion re mains somewhere about the City Hall and the State Capitol to save the city from being plunged Into bankruptcy just to gratify the thirst of an ambitious politi cian for popular applause. Out American Tyrannies. It Is suggested that it was a very poor compliment to Prince Henry to present ■him with the Freedom of the City of New York, and then make the town go dry over Sunday. What would his Koenlg liche Hohelt do for his beer and schnapps, if the Waldorf-Astoria had to shut up its bar like any other Ralnes-law hotel, or If he Were forced to consume a sawdust sandwich every time he assuaged his fa tigue with a foaming tankard? Henry belongs to a country wherein mild fanaticism Is not allowed to Inter fere with the ordinary enjoyment of life. If he were told that In this country a small number of narrow persons were al lowed to cause extreme privation and In convenience to the public at large, he would feel glad that he belonged to a na tion which was free from the despotism of fads. The Robert Emmet Commemoration Mr. James F. Minium’s notions of Irish history appear to be sightly mixed. The discovery that O’Connell *a» a Protestant Is hardly more startling than to find him grouped with Robert Emmet aa “fight ing” for Ireland's freedom. When O'Connell ■was dying, he embodied his wishes or hopes regarding his mortal and immortal elements in a phrase which has become famous through its epigram matte quality, “My heart to Rome, my body to Ireland, my soul to Heaven!” Another of his dicta, hardly leas famous though Infinitely less admirable, was his declaration that "no amount of human liberty was worth the shedding of a single drop of human blood.” Not quite so obvious but not less com plete was the confusion of Ideas which seemed to possess Dr. William J. O’Sulli van. The Doctor said that Emmet’s plans were well laid and that they were adopted by the Boers in South Africa. The plan of battle was not forts and citadels, but the hills and marshes were his places of retreat. Exactly the opposite Is true of Emmet. He believed in an insurrection In Dublin Kaelf»«nd his plans were laid on that line. As for the marshes and hills of Ireland, they bear about as much re semblance to the veldt, the mountains and the Jungles of South Africa aa the mountains and prairies of Colorado do to tha hills of North Jersey and the Hacken sack meadows. Modern Ireland affords as little opportunity dor partisan warfare, aueh aa De Wet conducts, as does the State of New Jersey, or less. In making these comments, wo do not wish to detract anything from the spirit of the speakers, but accuracy is worth cultivating even in matters of sentiment, and all th« really useful Irish leaders, from Emmet to Stevens and O'Mahoney and from O'Connei! to Parnell, always labored to keep realities both of principle end condition In view. There is no feature in which their example is more deserving of imitation than this. Catching Up. All last week the “Evening Journal" was busy giving the public points on what the Morris Canal abandonment bill was going to be like. On Monday, "Th* News” announced that there was going to be no such bill this year. Yesterday, the "Journal” woke up and copied "The News's” article.__ What About His Jiglets? If the Dance Hall ordinance Is so bad, where does Mark Fagan, Mayor, come nil His name is signed to it in large letters. Hr*. Eyler All Right Governor Murphy settled one more fake yesterday by reappointing the entire management of the State Home for Girls at Trenton. This secures Mrs. Eyler an other year of control and probably throe, and it puts the meddlesome faction where it belongs,—away back, sitting down. Judge Hoffman as a Legislator Judge Hoffman seems to be making a pleasant record this year at Trenton as the sponser for all the bad bills that any body wants introduced. Cuba Still Wait*. So far as one can judge, the only prog ress that has been made towards relief for Cuba is the growth of a vague fear in the beet-sugar gang of what the Presi dent may do if they do not come to their senses. It is hardly likely that a combi nation will be made to beat them with the aid of Democratic votes, but if they block all remedial legislation, Mr. Roose velt is pretty sure to talk in such a way and act In such a way that hardly one of them w*l' get back into the next Con gress, Indeed, If they succaed in their present villtiinous designs, it is probable the next HcJuse of Representatives will be Democratic, and then the fight for protec tion will be all along the line. It is possible that fear may do what neither decency nor justice has accom plished. It may bring the beet sugar gang fo its sense yet, and Cuba may <>e saved from present bankruptcy. A Happy Relief. It is a serious question whether the cap ture of General Lord Methuen is not the most fortunate thing that could happen to the British army short of its capture of De Wet. His iordship’s capacity for blundering appears to hav£ had no limit. AMUSEMENTS. Mantell in “Hamlet” at the Bijou Robert Mantell and his company las* night presented the principal piooe of their repertoire, "Hamlet,” at the Bijou thea tre to an overcrowded house. The au* dience was exceptional in its enthusiasm and ready wit in understanding to the full the unusual strong presentation of the story of the Prince of Denmark. There 13 no ground for believing that the audience turned out in such force because of its love of Shakespeare, but the ovation ac corded to Mr. Mantell was ample proof that it was he who drew the vast throng to the theatre. It is easy to believe that had Mantell played any other character in the play and announced that "Ham let” would be produced without Hamiet. the audience would have been as large. He is a favorite here and will be as long as he continues his stage career. Of Mr. Mantell's acting too much can not be said. He portrayed the hero of tile Bard of Avon In a manner that loses nothing by comparison with those who have won universal fame In Shake spearian roles. His support Is good and the costumes and scenery are all that could be desired. Above all the company gave an inteligent interpretation of the lines and there was no ranting nor cleaving at the air. against which the players are warned by the hero in his scheme to catch the emotional confession of the murderer of his father, Claudius. Next to Mantell's acting must be con sidered the portrayal by Miss Marie Booth Russell of the unfortunate Ophelia. She Is first or all pretty ana wen auapieu iu the pert. She wort the hearts of all pres ent, especially In the pathos of her insani ty. Good performances of Hamlet have been rare enough here, but such excellent acting of an Ophelia has been even rarer. Of the rest of the company but little dis tinction can be made In Justice. Perhaps ! Mr. W. J. Bowan, as Laertes, and Mr. E. M. Bostwlek, as Horatio, were the most deserving of praise for their work. The other characters were played by Mark Price, as Claudius, Robert Q. Stowe, as the ghost of Hamlet's father, Alfred H. Hastings, as Polonlus. James Mcll dowle as Rosencranz, J. C. Howitt as Ouildenstern, Henry Swlfte as Mafcellus, Albert Shaw as Bernardo. John Hewitt as Francisco, John V. Daly as First Grave digger, Stewart Wood as Second Grave digger, Charles Freeman as the Priest, James Clinton as First Actor.Henry Man ners as Second Actor, Miss Marie Mc Gregor as Osrlck, Mis* Minnie Monk as Queen Gertrude, and Miss Ella Harmon as Player Queen.

PAULUS HOOK MONUMENT Yesterday’s Doings at Tren ton—Atlantic City Bever ages—The Governor’s Appointments. [Spec'al to “The Jersey City Xews."] TRENTON. March 12, 1962.—Chief of Po lice Murphy and Captain John Kelly, of the Second Precinct of Jersey City, came to Trenton yesterday to do what they could to secure the passage of the bill which gives the Supreme Court the power to review summarily the proceedings of any police or Are board dismissing any member of the departments. The House Committee having the bill in charge gave a hearing on it, which was attended by the Jersey City officials and the superior officers of several cities. The policemen told the committee that the bill was for the best interests of the men of the departments, and its enactment would tend to make better officers offi cers of them by assuring them that they would not be dismissed without good cause. John H. Ward, president of the Jersey City Board of Education and Superinten dent of Schools Henry V. Snyder came to the State House to look after the bills now in the House to enable the Board of Education to erect new schools in this city. v&iunei OiiTIlUtri lj. t/iUMuavu ww» ainuug the Governor’s callers, and his presence about the State House gave rise to the rumor that his name would be sent to the Senate this morning for Secretary of State. Clay TUden was an interested spectator of the Legislature at work and Colonel John Toffey renewed his old ac quaintances among the State officials. Mr. Hudspeth thinks that the Battle of Paulus Hook was an event of sufficient importance In the Revolutionary history of this country to be commemorated by a suitable monument. He therefore intro duced in the Senate yesterday a bill which appropriates *1,500 for the erection of a commemorative tablet on the site of the Battle of Paulus Hook In Jersey City the amount to be paid to Paulus Hook Chap ter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. The bill making an appropriation for a battle of Princeton monument passed the Senate. When the Senate came to confirm the nominations of the Camden judges in executive session, it was discovered that £here was an error in the communication in Which the nomination of Martin V. Bergen as the Judge of the Camden Court had been made, and it was necessary to send the nomination back to the Governor to be made over again. As the Trustees of the Home for Girls, who were renominated Monday night, had to be sworn In today, they were confirm ed under a suspension of the rules. The Governor sent in the name of Hen ry Huston to be Prosecutor of Sussex in place of John L. Swayzr, who resigned to ; become Governor Murphy’s private secre tary. Mr. Huston resigned as Judge of | the Common Pleas to take the Prosecu j torship, and H6nry C. Hunt was nomlnat ■ ed to take his place. The executive ses i slon discussed informally the question of ; final adjournment and although no definite I action was taken the sentiment was in ! favor of winding up on Thursday March : 27. i The executive session connrmeu me nomination of George E.

(Special to "The Jersey City News.") TRENTON, March 12. 1902.—There was a scene of unusual Interest In the Assembly Chamber yesterday afternoon. The priv llege of the floor was voted to Andrew i Dutcher, who was speaker of the Assem bly of 1S57, and the sergeant-at-arms es corted him to a seat beside the Speaker. Mr. Dutcher looked hale and hearty for hie years, and In a comparatively Arm voice thanked the Assembly for the honor conferred upon him. | "Many of you," he said, "were not born , when I presided over the House. 1 must i congratulate you upon the improvements i you enjoy In this beautiful chamber and j the facilities for doing business. May all t you do redound to the benefit of New Jersey and the people of the Bute gener ; ally.” Mr^.Dutcher represented a Mercer coun ty district I# lUe Aseem|»ly but nour tint in Brooklyn, The HOW »mm4 Mr. Hud.pethe Ben ate bill which makes it the duty of boards of freeholders to designate some proper authority to look after the interment of veterans, the expense not to exceed $35 Provides that the graves of such veterans be properly marked by a headstone, not to cost more than $15. Provides furtheb that any graves of veterans now unmark ed or in a state of dilapidation or decay, shall be suitably marked and repaired. Mr. Howland's House bill authorizing State Board of Health to take measures to prevent the spread of contageous dis eases where local boards fail to act, alsj passed the House. Mr. Fallon of Hoboken yesterday intro duced in the House a concurrent resolu tion recommending to Congress that the Chinese exclusion law be reinacted. The Judiciary Committee has the resolution and wili probably keep it, as the Repub licans will never allow a Democrat to reap any prestige such a resolution might bring to the person Introducing it. The House passed Mr. Stillwell’s bill which allows Bayonne to convert its old City Hall in to a school building. Mr. Stillwell withdrew his bill providing for a new City Hall In Bayonne for amendment. He Will Introduce It agali and endeavor to put it through. Mr. McKee’s bill for the relief of Pa terson by reducing the interest on back taxes from ten to seven per cent, was passed by the Senate. The Senate also passed Mr. Hudspeth'3 bill, which provides that In counties wherein the fiscal year begins between November 1 and March 1. the chosen free holders may, during the current fiscal year, lawfully contract for a supply of coal for tile next fiscal year, and borrow money to pay for the same. This bill was Introduced for the purpose of allowing the Hudson Freeholders to purchase coal for a future year at a time when the price is low and money can be saved for the county. • Another measure passed by the Senate was Mr. Reed's bill, providing for the participation of the State in the Louisiana Purchase Exposi tion, to be held at St. Louis. Mo., In 1903. It authorizes the appointment by the Gov ernor of fifteen residents of this State, who s, ill constitute a New Jersey com mission to the Louisiana Purchase Expo sition, to co-operate with the Board of Di rectors of said exposition. Commissioners shall serve without compensation except actual expenses; shall appoint a secretary and fix his compensation.

An important bill passed by the Senate was Mr. Cross’s measure, which author izes the State Board of Health, in order that local boards of health may be en abled to secure the services of trained sanitary inspectors, to conduct examina tions at least semi-annually, to determine the qualifications of applicants.

His term shall be five years; salary to be fixed by the board. _ RIGHTS OF THE HOC Senators Excited Over the Great Philadelphia Garbage and Swill Question. (Special to “The Jersey City News.”) TRENTON, March 12. 1902.—Quite a breeze was stirred up in the Senate yes terday afternoon by Senator Johnson's bill which is intended to prevent the hog rai sers of Camden from bringing into the State garbage and swill from Philadel phia. When the measure came up on sec ond reading Mr. Johnson offered an amendment requiring that ail garbage brought into the State should be sub mitted to a process which would eliminate all poisonous and objectionable matter The bill aifects a largo industry in 3e caueus and when it came up Mr. Hud speth attacked it energetically. "It looks to me,” he began, "as if there was something in this L'ill which does not appear oil the surface. Possibly, some big Philadelphia dealers in garbage are trying to freeze out the smaller ones. This bill attacks a business in Hudson county, which affords a livelihood for at least a thousand people who collect garbage and feed it to their pigs.” He suggested that the entire matter could be regulated by the local health boards, and offered a substitute amend ment allowing health boards to grant li censes to garbage collectors and have a general supervision over the business. If the substitute was adopted, Mr. John son declared, it would destroy the intent of the bill and render It useless. The Camden Health Board had tried to cope with the matter and had failed to ac complish any satisfactory result*. So much garbage was dumped Into the out skirts of Camden that the county was menaced. Most of this garbage was cart ed from Philadelphia and carted through the streets of Camden, leaving a bad stench behind it, as well as sprinkling the streets with drtpppings. The idea of cleaning garbage was ridj ruled by Mr. Hudspeth, who said thsj pigs fattened on swill and filth, Mr. Cro thought thaf the proposed licensed featu would meet ail objections, while Mr. opposed the Idea of Mr. Hudspeth's *« so frequent a« to demand prfcveritiYe' measures. Sir. Johnson’s amendment was Anally adopted. ATLANTIC CITY’S THIRST Another Wrangle Over Sunday Liquor Selling—Protests Pour In. rSpecifll to "The Jersey City Nows."] TRENTON, March 12. 1902.—The Atlantic City charter, against which the church people of South Jersey are warring so persistently, came up in the Senate yester day afternoon, when Mr. Cross, of Union, declared that a number of amendments that had been made to the bill had not been included in the official reprint copy on his desk. Senator Oebhardt said that his reprint copy contained a clause allowing the Com mon Council to grant licenses and to al low liquor selling during certain hours on Sunday, which he understood was to be eliminated from the bill. President Francis explained that the of ficial copy of the amended bill on his desk was all right, and after Mr. Cross had assured himself of that fact by examin ing the president's and Senator Lee had declared that the omission had been pure ly a mistake of the printer, the bill was laid over for correction. Protests against the liquor selling clause of the bill continue to pour in notwith standing that it has been eliminated. LABOR DEMANDS Hunterdon and Hudson Demo crats Introduce Bills Reject ed by Majority Members. TREXTO'X. March 12, 1992,-^Nofewlth standiirg the fact that at the Federation c,t Labor's recent meeting in Newark. Heary Gottlob, the legislative agent, an nounced that it was impossible to expect to obtain legislation in the interest of labor from the present Legislature, a ■batch of'sueh biils was introduced yes terrday. Last week Gottlob tried to get one of the Essex delegation to handle the bills, but they ail with one accord began ■to make excuses and the labor man was about to give up tho quest when Mr. G-eb hardt, the Democratic Senator from Hun terdon, and George Tennant, the Demo cratic leader, came to his rescue. Mr. Gehhardt introduced the resolution calling for the election of United States Senators by the people and Mr. Tennant put in the bills in the House. These in clude the bi-weekly wages measure, a bill requiring ventilating fans in certain workshops, to keep down the dust ami smoke; the sixty hours’ a week for 'bake shops; a bill giving, the right of appeal to t'he Supreme Court from the District Court, and another authorizing the State Board of Arbitration to compel witnesess to appear before it and testify at its in vestigations.

At least forty representative women of the city and a few men gathered at the home of Mrs. Harriet P. Eaton. No.' 570 Pavonia avenue, yesterday afternoon, to hear the fourth In her course of Lenten lectures on Pottery, given by Mr. George H. Pepper. Mr. Pepper, it will be remem bered, was director of the Hyde Expedi tion in 1S9H, and his talk, under the head of "Ancient Pueblo Pottery," included an account of that exploration, as well as descriptions and interpretations of the "finds,” photographs of which were pass ed round for inspection. They included photographs of many beautifully carved pieces of turquoise and jet, samples of Mosaics and ancient pottery, the originals of which are to be found in the New York Musepm of Natural History, He gave the general results of his ex plorations in the ancient cliff dwellings of Arizona and New Mexico most interest ingly, bringing one of the most scientific of subjects within the grasp of all by the omission of scientific terms as far as possible, and by the aid of a photograph of each "find" mentioned, where the ac tual article was missing, as in the case of the Mosaics and turquoise. The ordin ary pottery could, of course, be duplicat ed, and here the real specimen was passed for inspection, together with photographs of Its various processes In the hands of the Indian squaw. These squaws, he said, worked very rap idly, so rapidly in fact that on one occa sion where he desired to take a series of photographs showing different stages of the work, the Indian woman had her jar all finished before he could adjust and focus his camera, or in less than twenty minutes. Nobody was safe. Mr. Pepper explained, in saying any certain piece of pottery came from any certain Pueblos, without absolute date, because throughout the Southwestern country the pottery was much alike. For this reason very few col lections were valuable—material gathered hap-hazzard never had any value, and in Pueblo pottery, particularly, it was the region that made the collection valuable. In the ceramic way only, Mr. Pepper continued, could the history of the old people be traced, as these ancient cliff dwellers had no written language. "Yet,” he added, "the accuracy with which things are passed down where there is no written language would sur prise you. Everything among the old peo ple was guided by religion. Their feas.s and ceremonies lasted for days, and the priests who led had to be accurate, for if a single mistake was made by one priest there was sure to be some one among the fifteen or more other officiating priests to discover it, the God was supposed to be offended and the ceremony declared void, and the people all went home. In this way accuracy was established." One Of the most interesuuB the address was the discovery of the room where all the beautiful turquoise above mentioned was discovered. This was dug out after weeks of hard labor, though it was located more by accident than anything else. Photographs of the excavation as it progressed were passed around. -Often." said Mr. Pepper, "the Indians who helped, begged us to give up. because they were sure we would find nothing, and they were just as anxious to make new discoveries as we were—but I insist ed. and they went on. The finding of the turquoise was the result.” Among those present were:—Dr. Eaton, Mrs. John A. Walker.Mrs. E. P. C. Young. Mrs. William Grattan, Mrs. Spencer Weart Mrs. Charles Black. Miss Buffet, Miss Cornelia Post, Mrs. Fishbough, Miss Pitcher, Miss Florence White. Mrs. Dar ling, Miss Darling. Mrs. James Erwin, Mrs. P. K. Green, Mrs.. James Robottom, Mrs" Elmer Underhill.
