FRIDAY, APRIL 25, 1902.
This paper is Democratic in principles
and is independent in its views on all
local questions.
The Beef Trust in a Dilemma.
The Republlco-Beef Trust’s squirming
explanations continue to afford the public
far more amusement than satisfaction.
At any rate one or two things are certain
on the word of the political end of the
combination.
First of all there is a Trust.
Second it is a wicked Trust.
The^e two points are conclusively estab
lished by the action taken by the At
torney General for the dissolution of the
Trust on the theory that it is a combina
tion in restraint of trade. After the
frantic declarations which the Repub
lican organs have been making for the
last two weeks that there is no trust and
that no effort to boost prices artificially
'has ever been made and that the scarcity
of meat is due to natural causes, this
action of Mr. Knox is a trifle grotesque.
But the Trust is not discouraged by the
fact that the Administration faction of
the G. O. F. has gone back on it. No
doubt it has consented to the bringing of
this suit as a sort of Pickwickian pro
ceeding calculated to amuse the public
and keep them quiet while it does the
Trust not a particle of harm. The Trust
no doubt feels that it is never so safe as
•when it is defendant in a suit by the At
torney General. There Is abundant prece
ient to satisfy it that such suits are per
fectly harmless. Many of them have been
brought in the last ten years, but not one
has accomplished the object supposed to
be aimed at.
However, the Trust organs are not rest
ing merely on the Attorney-General's suit
as a sop to public indignation. Their sub
sidized organs, such as the New York
’’Sun,” are still blazing the further ex
planation that the scarcity is due to nat
ural causes, that cattle are really scarce
and that the Trust has to put up the
price of beef to consumers, whether U
wishes to do so or not. Really, in making
this claim, it is giving away the whole
situation from the tariff point of view.
If fat cattle are really lacking to supply
the public demand for food, then there
Is absolutely no argument that can be ad
vanced against the free admission of for
eign beeves. Indeed, the Beef Trust it
self ought to be clamoring for free cat
tle, since the Trust is a manufacturing
concern and cattle on the hoof is the raw
material from which it manufactures edi
ble beef. The fact that the representa
tives of the Trust are opposing the impor
tation of cattle is conclusive proof that I
scarcity is not the cause of the present
prices of food products, but that the re
cent increases are due to the business
policy of the Trust—the policy of making
restricted sales with an inordinate per
centage of profit.
The Disreputable Senate.
Our United States Senators appear to
be a pretty disreputable lot. Senator
Money’s performance in cutting a street
car conductor with whom he quarreled, is
a nice pendant to Senator Tillman's scrap
with Senator McLaurin.
Our Misfit Corporation Counsel;
City officials whose terms of office ante
date January 1 of this year must have
felt on Wednesday night all that bitter
regret, which the poet describes in burn
ing language, for the touch of a vanished
hand and the sound of a voice that is
■till.
Who can imagine W. D. Edwards or
John A. Blair or Allan L. McDermott fen
cing and dodging with high municipal
officers who sought from them legal defi
nition of the meaning and effect of a new
statute. Imagine any one of them—or
any of their predecessors, Leon A’bbett or
Wiiliam A. Lewis, for instance—dealing
In glittering generalities and specious
edifice* of words designed to conceal
ignorance and incapacity and to evade
the responsibility of a clearly expressed
opinion. Imagine any of the gentlemen
named leaving the city authorities in such
ft state of fog and bewilderment after a
prolonged conference, that an appeal to
outside counsel, at great expense to the
city, appeared to them to be the only
means of gaining light with which to do
the public business safely.
The situation would be laughable If it
were not alarming. Jersey City has vir
tually no Corporation Counsel, and the
most serious complications are growing
u'p about the administration, all needing
the highest order of legal ability to dis
entangle them. It is to be hoped that
no consideration of fitleo economy will
stand in the way of the employment of
expert talent to keep the officials in the
right groove. Special counsel come hig.i,
but anything is cheaper than chaos.
Then and Now.
The “Evening Journal" is onee again
kicking over the method by which the
prisoners in the County Jail are main
tained, viz.: the payment to the Sheriff
of so much a head for their food and
care.
Let the “Journal” not forget that the
system was established by the Republican
party, when it wanted to reduce the per
quisites of Jailer Robert Davis end turn
them over to Sheriff John J. Toffey.
The “Journal” then thought the present
plan a very good one Indeed.
BENSON DAT.
Everybody Delighted With
Reading Room Open
ed Yesterday.
Mrs. Hudspeth-Benson was justly proud
yesterday afternoon as she presided over
the opening reception of the new reading
room. Through her indefatigable efforts
there has just been started a working
man's reading room in what used to be a
fish market. A one-story triangular
building adjoining a saloon in the little
triangular block at the junction of Mont
gomery street and Bergen avenue.
Woman’s ingenuity has transformed the
old fish market into a veritable working
man’s paradise. With an eye to harmony
the walls and ceiling have been tinted a
deep terra cotta, while dainty green and
white chintz curtains drape the windows,
and gilt framed colored photographs of
the World’s Fair set off the the dark ,
background. The floor is covered with a
harmonizing linoleum, the gift of Mr.
Eernstein. At one end of the room stands
a handsome walnut writing desk, the gift
of Senator Hudspeth, and in the centre
of the room is a long baize-covered table
heaped with current magazines and daily
newspapers.
The room is light, having four windows
and two doors, one opening on Montgom
ery street, the other on Foye place. There
is also a third door, but this is kept lock
ed. It is now hidden behind a screen and
will later be nailed up out of temptation’s
way, as it leads into the saloon next door.
At the opposite end of the room is a
sink with running water, which also is
hidden behind a screen, and at which the
men may regale themselves when thirsty.
It is to be hoped they will not mistake
ends. Later a soda water fountain, at
which soft drinks may be had at a nom
inal cost, will be put in, and during the
winter hot coffee will be served from the
urn which used to belong to the W. C.
T. U. when that organization ran a cof
fee room a few years ago somewhere in
the same vicinity.
For the room and its pretty decorations
Mrs. Benson shares glory with Mrs. F.
Eveleth, who has also worked hard, par
ticularly at the artistic end of it. Both
ladies were on hand yesterday from one
o’clock on to receive visitors and deal
out refreshments. Among those who call
ed were several members of the Traction
Company, Inspector Archibald, Captain
Cox and several minor police officers in
blue, who all expressed themselves de
lighted with the new project and solemnly
pledged their support in a deep draught
of lemonade.
The night policeman on that post has
promised to see that no harm comes to
the new haven, and an Italian across the
way has been secured to keep the place
clean and to open and close it at specified
hours. Conductors and motormen are es
pecially delighted, for now they will have
a place to rest during their off hours and
where they may escape the drenching dur
ing April showers. Among the club wo
men who called were Mrs. H. E. Niese,
Mrs. Dutcher. Mrs. Willard Fisk, Mrs. P.
K. Green, Mrs. James Edwards, Mrs.
George Judson, Mrs. George Record, Mrs
Harvie Hall, Miss Lela Hinds. Miss Eliza
beth Hinds.
The Free Public Library will furnish
magazines from its stock as soon as they
have been reasonably circulated among
its readers. There are no restricting
signs of any kind.
“THE SNOW BALL"
Excellent Entertainment by the
Young People of Grace Chnroh.
The members of St. Agnes's Guild of
Grace Church, Van Vorst, gave a very
sucoessful three act comedy last evening
in the parish hall of the church on Erie
street. 1
It was entitled “The Snow Ball," and
was given for the purpose of securing
enough money to pay the water tax on
the church and parsonage.
The hall was crowded and not a vacant
seat could be seen.
The young ladies and gentlemen who
took part in the amusing comedy fllled
their parts excellently. The large aud
ience was astonished at the clever perfor
mance presented by the young people, and
liberally applauded their efforts.
This was the cast:—Felix Fetherstone,
Mr. Theodore ValJeau; Uncle John, Mr.
E. W. Housdon: Harry Pendergast. Mr.
George C. I.e Blance:Mrs. Fetherstone,
Miss Amy L. Valleau: Miss Penelope,
Miss Margaret M. Crawford; Saunder,
Miss Ethel Hodsdon.
Between the acts the audience was en
tertained with an instrumental duet, by
Miss J. Belle Boltwood and Miss N. Hel
lerman, and vocal solos by Miss M. Curry
, and Miss N. Hellerman.
TABLEAUX BY THE LADIES
Entertainment in tlie Jersey City
Club An Interesting One.
The ladies of the First Universalist
Church, Ivy place and Summit avenue,
provided a delightful programme of music
ing in the Jersey City Club, at Crescent
and Clinton avenues, on the Heights. The
numbers were thoroughly appreciated by
the large audience.
Miss Isbfster opened the programme
with a piano solo, ‘'Nocturne.’' Miss Lil
lian Morrow followed with a mandolin
solo, “Chimes of Normandy." A panto
mime was then given, after which Greek
tableaux were presented. A duet followed
by Mrs. B.. H. Bender and Miss Minnie
Goesser, “Passage Bird’s Farewell." Miss
Eudora F. Parkhurst rendered a violin
solo, "Theme Varie," and then the “Greek
Processional" and the “Greek Temple
Worship" were given in tableaux. Mrs.
Bender rendered “Oh. for a Day of
Spring," and Miss Parkhurst brought the
programme to a close with a violin solo,
"Bolero."

SUNDAY NEWSPAPERS
Legalized Liquor Traffic the
Foe of Sabbath and
Temperance Work.
After a dainty and generous basket
luncheon-, the afternoon session of the
Hudson County W. C. T. J. semi-annual
convention, in the Bergen Reformed
Church, opened with devotional exercises
led by Mrs. W. D. Edwards.
The Rev. Dr. Brett, who has just under
gone an operation for his eyes, was un
able to be present and sent Mr. Joel
Brown to represent him and -bring greet
ings. This Mr. Brown did to the great
satisfaction of the ladie-s. He wore the
little white ribbon emblem, explaining that
he was an honorary member of the High
land Wilted Union, and did not see how
anybody could be a church worker and
not be a temperance worker. He con
cluded by hoping the time was coming
when women could vote, and retired
amid hearty applause.
Mrs. T. J. Kennedy, secretary, then
read the minutes of the morning meeting,
after which Mrs. A. Robertson of Pater
son was introduced. She spoke on
“Mothers’ Meetings.” It was what the
mother did rather than what she said,
the speaker explained, that influenced the
child whose text ‘book was the mother’s
face. She spoke of a mothers’ club In
existence when Frances Willard was a
child and recommended some of its by
laws, one of which was to spend the an
niversary of each child’s birth in fasting
and prayer. Every mothers’ meeting
should, she said, 'be along practical lines,
and in order to promote freer discussion
she thought it might 'be well to serve
light refreshments.-ft. The newest feature
of these meetings, according to the
speaker, was the cradle roll upon which
each child under six was registered. After
six they are promoted to the Loyal Tem
perance Legion.
Here th^ programme was diversified
with a solo by airs. T. J. Turner, during
which a telegram arrived and was hand
ed to the president. The telegram turned
out to be from no less a personage than
■Mrs. Ruffin, the negro delegate, whom the
General Federation of Woman's Clubs
refused to recognize, and ^stated that she
would lecture in Jersey City on May 2.
The news teas received with great re
joicing. Mrs. Story said she hoped that
the Woman’s Club would attend, and if
they could not accept her into their mem
bership at least give her the hand of
fellowship in the temperance work,
whereupon it was voted to invite all the
Women's Clubs in Hudson county to be
present at the lecture. The lecture will
be given in the afternoon at the Bergen
Baptist Church.
The next speaker was Miss M. Strong,
a delicate looking little woman with a
weak voice, who is State Superintendent
of Sabbath Observance. She spoke on
that subject, or rather the lack of it.
“Sabbath and temperance work." saia
she, "equally find the. legalized liquor
traffic their constant and inveterate foe.
On the Sabbath wage earners have money
in pocket with leisure to! spend it, a fact
that the saloonkeeper is ready to turn to
his advantage, hence their persistent ef
forts to secure legislation that will re
move all restrictions against Sunday sell
ing and their many devices to evade exist
ing laws.
“Bad as license laws are in principle, it
would be a great thing if we could secuie
the enforcement of them in so far as they
forbid Sunday selling. It is one of the
most difficult things we women can un
dertake, but we are ready to help where
we can. Abat e all we must be consistent
and while we demand cessation of Sun
day labor must be very careful that we
do not create a necessity for it. I have
heard the butchers denounce professed
Christian because they Insisted on having
their meat or chickens delivered on Sun
day. And many women have omitted
the weighty matters of God's laws whne
they exhausted pantry and cellar to get
up a big Sunday dinner. Consistency is
the thing the world looks for. Talk about
observing the Sabbath counts for very lit
tle if the talker be found now and then
on a Sunday train or traveling any other
way for his own pleasure or convenience.”
On top of this Miss Strong urged that
the Sabbath be made a nice pleasant d.iy
for the children, and made an attack up
on the Sunday newspaper. Among other
things she said:—
“To urge that the work on the Sunday
paper Is all done pn Saturday may be a
kind of opiate for an awakened con
science. but is only a superficial treat
ment of a deep seated disease and do“s
not meet the case at all. The most shal
low roasoner must see that the evil of
this thing so far from being ended when
the last edition leaves the press has only
just begun.”
Mrs. T. J. Kennedy and Miss L. Jack
son led the secretaries' conference, and
Mrs. Van De Kerken the treasurers' con
ference, after which came the resolutions,
including Miss Raymond's annual, against
Sunday opening, sale of liquor to minors,
and low concert halls adjoining saloons.
After the collection and a question box
session, the ladies adjourned for supper.
The feature of the evening was an ad
dress on "Our Country,” by John G.
Woolley, who prateed its scenic beauty
with the same extravagance that decried
Its politicians, constantly reminding his
audience that they must take him
"broadly.” According to him everything
was corrupt, eivcn to clergymen, “who did
not study the face of God, but the face
j in the pew to see how far he could push
the Gospel and keep his Job."
“The doctrine that uprighteousnes3 Is
! a loser In the trade, spreads and grows,”
said he, “the churches, to be sure, sound
the true note, hut what the church says
gets little attention. The same men who
support the trades support It.
i “The American people are consenting to
! political influences at which God frowns.
We are too apt to blame our political
leaders—I am not here to defend them—
they are too small game for my gun. But
it is not bad politicians, though we have
them, it Is not bad governments, though
we have them, tt Is because the people
consent to It. There Is no denying we
have made wonderful progress In proper
ty. We have our land, but we are de
bauching it with tramps, drunkards and
dirty politicians. Nobody expects the
Congressman to be as good after election
as he was before. Nobody expects the
Mayor, U straight when elected, to re

main straight, and it is the official opin
ion. or has been, that a volunteer is such

The convention ended by the audience
proudly singing “My Country, ’Tis of
Thee.”

State House Grounds Were
Never More Beautiful
Than This Spring.
[Special to “The Jersey City News “1
TRENTON, April 25, 1902. —The State
House grounds are a thing of beauty just
now and the careful arrangement of the
many beds of plants is due in a great
measure to the plans of Custodian Wese
man and the work of Foreman John Con
nell.
From the State street line to the water
power there is a constant panorama of
red, white, yellow and purple and the
Delaware avenue side is brightened by a
bed of many colored hyacinths and red,
yellow and white tulips.
The State street and Delaware avenue
corner is the location of the large star,
made up of the vari-colored tulips and
hyacinths, and this design suceeds the
wreath which held forth for so long a
time and which so few could understand
the meaning of unless they gave it more
than ordinary scrutiny.
In the front of the grounds, next the
Green residence, is a bed of hyacinths,
which has a purple center surrounded
by an inner ring of white and an outer
ring of pink hyacinths.
In the rear of this bed is a triangle
of white tulips, partly surrounded by a
crescent of red tulips, with purple and
yellow pansies on the left.
Almost directly in front of the treas
urer’s office is a cross of yellow tulips,
completely encircled by a ring of red
Ullips.
Along the side of the State House, lead
ing from the front walk back to the Gov
ernor’s office is a series of circles of yel
low tulips with white centers.
Broken circles also extend along the
same line and are Interspersed with
double hoops of white tulips.
The fountain is surrounded by yellow
tulips, set outside the walk and there is
a bed of double yellow and pink tulips on
the right of the walk, near the fountain.
These are of exceptional beauty and ex
cite many words of admiration from the
visitors. Pink and white hyacinths com
plete these beds.
There is a bed of hyacinths of all col
ors between the Governor’s and Comp
troller’s offices, and these attract much
attention.
In front of the fountain is a bed of
white daffodils and in. the rear purple
hyacinths.
In the rear of the Governor’s office is
a triangular bed of tulips of all colors,
and along the walk is a solid bed of yel
low pansies, with about half a dozen
white and purple ones* dropped in to give
it an unique appearance.
At the forks of the walk, on the rise
j above the water power, is a bed of double
! tulips, and on the right what is called
“the farm.” This consists of a circle of
hyacinths, inside of which Is vari-colored
tulips and yellow daffodils, and the center
is composed of an odd looking graa?,
wjiieh was imported a year or so ago,
and which results in many questions
being asked as to what it is.
A rose bed surrounded by yellow daffo
dils completes the artistic decorat'.or.9 of
the ground?, together with the colored
lights in the fountain. Electrician Kulp
has arranged the red, white and blue
lights In a series, giving them a neater,
and at the same time, more emblemat:c
effect than when they were mixed all up
together.
There are many visitors to the State
House grounds these warm days and each
and all appreciate the appearance of the
flower bed.*v The longing look* cast upon
these bed? leads one to believe that many
of the visitors would like very much to
have specimens for themselves, but none
are given out, except in rare instances,
because of the demand that would J>e
made if the custom was once started.
With the exception of the pansies*, all
the plants were in the ground during the
winter and have grown up from the roots
this spring.
A week before Memorial day the plants
will be taken up and others more su;table
to the season set out. While the present
flowers arc the prettiest that can be
placed in the beds, they will not last
more than a month before their reason,
will be spent.
A number of tree? have been set out In
the park, across the wqter power, this
spring, and there will be quite a lot of
shade by another year. Two bushels of
grass seed have been sown on the ground
and an effort will be made to have a
good substantial ?od there another year.
The placing of the seats and the set
ting out of flowers in the park will be
left for another year, when some action
will doubtless be taken with this end in
view.

Directors of Education De
cide to Act Under Both
School Laws.
ORGANIZE UNDER NEW
Board of Estimate Appointed
and Mr. Lewis Elected
Vice President.
The Board of School Estimate Is made
up of President Rlngle and Commissioner
Brock of the Board of Finance. Directors
Coyle and Egbert of the Board of Educa
tion and Mayor Fagan.
These gentlemen, except Mayor Fagan,
were appointed last evening; the F.nance
Commissioners at a special meeting of
their Board, and the others at a regular
meeting of the Educational Board. Mayor
Fagan is a member of the Board by
reason of his official position.
I The Board of School Estimate was
| created by the Oeneral School Law in
i Section 75, Article 6 of Chapter 36, which
provides:—
In every school district the Board
of Education shall appoint two of its
members, and the Common Council,
Board of Finance or other body in
such city having the power to make
appropriations of money raised by
taxes in said city, shall appoint two
of its members, which persons so ap
pointed. together with the Mayor or
other chief executive officer of the
city, shall constitute a board to be
known as the “Board of School Esti
mate" of said school district; said ap
pointments* shall be made annually
during the month of January; the sec
retary of the Board of Education
shall be tV secretary of the Board
of School Estimate, but shall receive
no compensation as such.
James Wiseman, who has been clerk of
the Board of Education for years, was
appointed secretary. His present salary
will be continued.
The Board of Education is nowr a cor
poration aside from the corporation of
the city. Section S4 of the same article
and chapter says:—
A board of education created under
the provisions of this article shall be
a body corporate.
Hereafter the Board will be known as
“The Board of Education of the City of
Jersey City, in the County of Hudson."
As an official s?al is required*. President
Ward at last night's meeting appointed
Directors Ramsey. Ridgway and Lyon a
committee to devise and recommend a
seal.
President Ward gave the Board a short
report of the private conference held at
the Board of Finance office Wednesday.
He said that it was decided to go ahead
and act literally under the new law and
also as far as possible under the old law.
He spoke of the necessity of appointing
members to act on the Board of School
Estimate and when Director Moran re
minded him that the law said the appoint
ments should be made in January he re
plied that the advice of the city's coun
sel was that It was best to appoint now.
It was decided to ask the city’s law offi
cers to act in the same capacities for the
newly corporated *Board of Education at
no salary.
The new state of affairs makes the
Board of Education independent of the
city save so far as money is concerned.
It will receive money for its expenses as
heretofore.
Under the old law' the estimate for the
ensuing year's appropriation had to be
made up and forwarded ot the Board of
Finance on or before May 1. Under the
new law’ it is to be made up by the Board
on or before May 15, and forw’arded to
each member of the Board of School Esti
mate.
before June 1 this Board is to make an
estimate of the appropriation and forward
it to the Board of Finance. It has nowr
been decided to act in this particular un
der the old as well as under the new law'.
In order to do this a special meeting has
been called for next Tuesday, April 2S,
wrhen the Committee on Finance is to re
port its estimate of the necessary appro
priation. This will be adopted by the
Board and sent to the Board of Finance.
The same sum will later be sent to the
Board of School Estimate. This will be
approved by that Board and sent to the
Board of Finance. The Board of Finance
will accept and approve both. Then, If
the courts should take any action on the
matter, the appropriation will stand no
matter what decision is reached.
All moneys appropriated to the Board
of Education or in any way required by
it will be under its exclusive control. It
will be turned over to City Treasurer Ely,
who is the custodian of school funds un
der the liw. The money will be paid out
by warrant drawn and approved by the
President and Secretary of the Board.
The Board may sue and be sued, pur
chase. sell, take or condemn lands for
school purchases, just as the city does
now for public purposes. All rights to
lands or property of any kind now used
for school purposes will be vested in the
* Board.
The law' provides for a vice-president
and on motion of Director Moran, last
night, Director William Lewds was unan
imously elected.
Director Ridgway’s motion that the
rules of the old Board be adopted as the
rules of the new corporation w’ere
adopted.
Director dcwis oi tne vcmmtuee on
Finance reported a balance of 54.20ii.40
from the claims fund, and on hie motion
it was decided to order a warrant drawn
on the City Treasurer for this sum to
his own account to be transferred into
the general fund.
A warrant was also ordered drawn for
5210, a balance which is to go to the aid
of school libraries. This sum will be dis
tributed among the various public schools.
Charles H. Robe was awarded the con
tract for tne painting of School No. 25.
He bid 51,522- There were four other bids.
Seven bids for furniture for the same
school were received, but the contract
was not awarded.
Leaves of absence were granted to
Miss Saralt Callon of No. 7, Miss Mary
McDowell of the High School, and Miss
: Florence Copinger of No. 6, for one
' month. The leave of Mias Henrietta
