THE JERSEY CITY NEWS the oxly DEMOCRATIC | Daily Paper Published is Jersey City—Mn»»e copies one cent; subscription three dollars per yeti' ^Knter^^in the post office at Jersey City as second C*AJ1 business communications should be addressed to the City Publishing Company, all letters for pub llcatlon to the Managing Editor. THURSDAY, MAY 1, 1902. This paper is Democratic in principles and is xnaependent in its views on all local questioiis. Our Naval Officers in Trouble and the American Press. Some of the bilious newspapers, iike the New York "Evening Post,” are busy throwing stones at ‘the unfortunate American Naval officers who have be come entangled in a difficulty with the Italian police in the city of Venice, It is a pity they have nothing better to do. Vaken at the best, the plight of these men is desperate. It is certainly the height of injustice and brutality for their own countrymen to endeavor to stir up passion against them. If they have been guilty of any sort of rowdyism, it is inevitable that they will be punished in a manner and degree out of all proportion to the offence as looked at from the point of the average citizen. The very mildest penalty they can look for involves utter personal disgrace and the ruin of their whole lives. I he orcn nary young man, who might have a semi drunken scrap with the police at home or abroad might expect to get off with a fine and the severe displeasure of his relatives. These men, if they are ad Jr ’ged guilty in the smallest degree, will probably be dismissed from the Navy, and will thus suffer the ruin of their en tire career. It is fair to remember, too, that we are in very imperfect possession of the fads in the case. Only one thing is quite cer tain. and that is that the judgment of the Italian court is a brutal and malignant piece of spite. The articles published in tne Italian newspapers afford all the evi dence of this that any rational person can demand. These officers, having become involved In a petty scrimmage, have been made victims of the notorious Italian spirit of revenge, which is fiercer against Americans on account of the New Or leans lynchings. Common decency would seem to demand a suspension of judgment in this case until the truth is fully known, and under any circumstances the culprits may well be left to the tender mercies of a court martial without inflammation of public feeling against them. The case is one rather for sorrow than anger. If any foreign paper should presume to use a similar incident to blacken the whole repute of the naval officers of its country, as the "Post” has most disgrace fully done, it would be made suffer very disastrous consequences. In England It and its blackguard editors would be sent to Coventry; in France or Germany it would be prosecuted and fined: in Italy or Spain its offices would be mobbed and wrecked. The "Evening Post" enjoys the lamenta ble distinction of being always the first one to fling mud on anything American. Xt is a disgrace to the country. Hacking at McDermott. The Cheerful Idiot of the New York I •‘Press” gets off this chunk of wisdom:— It is just possible that If Represen tative McDermott would occupy less time in attempting to make Demo cratic capital out of the Meat Trust agitation and would put In more to boom the project for a public building in Jersey City he would be more in harmony with one of the Issues on which he was elected. Does the writer of the above really be lieve it. However important it may be to obtain a new (Postofflee for Jersey City, can anyone but an idiot consider that it ft more important than to see the people of the United States have meat to pnt in their mouths and that they are not robbed by a wicked monopoly. And then, does the "Press” imagine that any effort Mr. McDermott could make would have won an appropriation for a Postoffice from the present Con gress? Tough Nut to Crack. When Mayor Fagan masters the esti mates prepared by the Board of Educa tion, yesterday, he may begin to agree with Mr. Jacob Ringle that this is not exactly the year for expensive schemes of personal aggrandizement. Nonsense About the Beef Duties. The “Journal” yesterday. In trying to souirm out of the dilemma in which tiic Beef Trust places, the protectionist fac tion, proved a trifle too much. It assert ed that the tariff on beef was not to blame for the price of beef because, at present prices, It would pay to Import and pay ‘he duty. TV* is m cruel blow to tho Trust's Claim that a real scarcity is the cause ol I the present famine. If beef can be im ported at a profit, why does not the Trust import it and stop the scarcity? The answer is that the moment tha scarcity ends, the price will drop to a point at which it will no longer pay to import. Without the scarcity you can not keep up the price: without the price, you cannot import. So there you are. The “Journal" is silly when it talk3 tariff, as all protectionists are. There is no common sense in the thing. It Vio lates all logic and natural law', i-ere is no such thing as a valid argument for protection. The things that pass for ar guments are thin fallacies and juggles. AMUSEMENTS. Academy of Music. “Laugh and the world laughs with you,” Is the guiding axiom of the theatri cal world today. Our serious ancestors were fond of sombre tragedies, but the present generation seeks relief from the social pressure of this commercial age in the lighter forms of entertainment. This is the explanation for the phenomenal success of that latest and funniest of farces, “Whose Baby Are You?” that comes to the Academy of 'Music next week. The warp and woof of this farcical fabric may be said to be woven from laughter and sunshine if this ethereal metaphor Is permissible. It i» literally what its manager. Mr. Myron B. Rice, calls it, “An effervescent ecstasy,” for it is a series of brilliant bubbles like a sparkling glass of champagne. The scenes are alf laid in an artist’s studio, where an innocent baby raises more trouble in one hour than a political con vention does in three days. The piece is all fun and frolic. “The Model Behind the Screen” is one of the clever sur prises and novel features of the piece. The company includes such well known New York favorites as Miss May Vokes and Mr. Charles W. ‘Bowser. “Whose Baby Are You?’’ has been accorded the laural wreaths of popularity and is gen erally conceded to be the funniest farce on the road this season. Bijou Theatre. The crowds that are attending the Bijou Theatre this week are a unit in the opinion that the performance by the Blaney Stock Co. of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” Is one of the most interest ing and artistic dramatic events ever wit nessed in this city. The production is in deed a most beautiful and massive one. The beautiful stage settings displayed in the many scenes of the play are of a rare order of attractive work in this line, the most up-to-date contrivances being used in the lighting effects, and the costumes which are many and beautiful, are his torically correct as well. The interpreta tion of the various parts call for the most ambitious efforts of the company. Mr. Turner's work as the Hunchback is most worthy indeed, as is also Mr. Hail's, Mr. Fenwick's and Miss Atwood's. For next week’s bill is announced Mr. Chas. Cogh lan’s great play "The Royal Box,” in which piece is also introduced the bal cony scene from Romeo and Juliet. The play was his masterpiece, and Is a rarely beautiful piece of work. The story of the play is laid in England, and deals in the love episode In the life of Clarence, the most popular actor in London a century ago. The production will be elaborately stag ed, and costumed in a beautiful and fit ting manner. Mr. Blaney declares that he will surpass himself in this instance, and the production will be equal to the original and worthy of Broadway. New Yorh Theatre. "Tha Hall of Fame,” the beautiful spectacular burlesque review, that has crowded the big New York Theatre since its initial production, is still the attrac tion at that house. Although fourteen weeks have elapsed since it was put on, immense throngs are the order at the evening and matinee performances. Many things new and attractive have been added to the play by the clever members of the all-star company, and It is even more attractive than ever. Five hundred pretty girls In gorgeous ballets and stirring marches are one of the chief attractions. The Niagara Falls scene, depicting that wonderful waterfall; the Nancy Girls, the Girls at the Black Cat Inn and all the other scenes are won drous. Marie Dressier, Mabel Gilman, Ada Lewis, Josie Sadler, Georgia Kelly, Miss Mabie, Louis Harrison, Dan Me Avoy, Charles Prince are the principals and fun makers in the big company. EVARS-DAYS Daughter of Commissioner Birdsall . Weds a New York Man. Mrs. Caroline F. Days, daughter of Boulevard Commissioner Charles Birdsall and niece of the late Dr. James H. Me- I Dowell, of this* city, was married last | night to Mr. T. W. Evans, managing j chemist In the laboratory of Dr. Walton's oxygen works of New York. The cere mony was held in the rectory of St. John's P. E. Church, this city, the Rev. Dr. E. S. Forbes officiating. Mias W. E. Patton, of Jamaica, Long Island, acted as maid of honor, and Mr. W. H. Holt, of New York, was best man. Only the immediate relatives of both families were present. Upon returning to No. 151 East Forty- ‘ eighth street. 'New York, their future home, Mr. and Mrs. Evans were serenad ed by Mr. Evans’ friends of the Walton oxygen works and a handsome present was added to the many already received.

Mr. Lawrence Rohan, a well known amateur actor of York and Henderson streets, will leave this city in a few days for Hartford, Conn., where he will take part in a performance that will be given urider the auspices of one of the best amateur companies of that city.

I only used the Compound for a few weeks, hut it wrought a change in me which I felt from the very beginning. I have been very regular since, have no pains, and find that my entire body ia as if it was renewed. I gladly recom mend Lydia E.

In all probabilities the Dallas ''Xewe,” of Dallas, Texas, of the issue of Wednes day, April 23, is the largest newspaper ever issued in the Southwest. The occa sion for this unusual display of journal istic enterprise is the great reunion of Confederate veterans which took place In Dallas last week. The number consists of seventy-two pages of highly interesting matter. In addition to the general news of the day there is much entertaining Information about the city of Dallas. Or.e large supplement Is devoted to the I veterans and the brave deeds they did ] during the Civil War and Is profusely ii i lustrated with portraits of the Con ] federate heroes, of whose deede on the , battlefield every American has reason to he proud. YOUNG MEN’S CLUB EUCHRE. A euchre and reception was held under the auspices of the Young Mesfs Repub lican Club last night at Phillips’ Hall. About forty prizes were distributed, John J. Erwin acting in that capacity. Danc ing followed the games. About forty tab les were used. TRUST THE STATE Republican Financiering Pro vides No Fund to Pay Commonwealth’s Just Debts. New Jersey has purchased the oil por trait of the late ex-Governor William A. Newell, that now graces the wall of the Governor’s reception room, on credit. Frederick II. Clark, the artist of this city who painted the portrait, will have to give the State seven months’ time before receiving the $600 he is to get for his work. This condition of affairs is due to the fact that the item for the purchase of the portrait was incorporated in the gen eral appropriation's bill, which doe.5* not become operative until next November. It is customary to place such items in the supplemental bill wfhich is available at once, but this year’s supplemental bill was so heavy that all the items that could be placed In the regular bill were put there. Mr. Clark will therefore have j to wait for his money. It was also discovered yesterday that the commission to investigate and report on the clothing furnished by the State to the Spanish-American War veterans named by the Governor last week and of which Captain C. Albert Gasser of Newark is the head, cannot expend any moneys until after July 4 next. The law' under which the commission was created really does not become ef fective until that time. No provision for this commission was made in any of the appropriation bills, but the joint resolution creating the com mission sets out that bills not to exceed $2,000 may be contracted in the name of the State and shall be paid by the State Treasurer, in the conduct of the investi gation. There was no clause In the measure to have it “go into effect immediately” so that it will not become operative un til July 4, when all laws, not otherwise provided for, go into effect. WILL FORGE MURRAY OUT Session of U. P. Church to Meet and Consider Piano Smash ing Incident. A meeting of the Session of the First United Presbyterian Church, Sip and Ton nele avenues on the Heights, will be held tonight at the home of the Rev. Andrew Henry, D. D., No. 7 Magnolia avenue. It is more than likely that the case of Ron ald Murray, the member who create^ a disturbance at the prayer meeting a week ago by attempting to smash the piano and got punched for his pains, will be considered and action taken. From the sentiment among the members, it is learned that Murray has no supporters, and that he is harshly condemned for making an outbreak. It was said by a prominent member that Murray’s resignation would be de manded in view of the recent notoriety caused by his attempting to wreck the piano. All the members of the Session are warm sympathizers of Pastor Henry, and they will doubtless uphold him in the fight. / Murray says he will not be kicked out of the church. It was not his intention to get out or even refer to the unpleasant Incident of last week, but it is learned that Murray will make a fight if neces sary. He sticks to the story that he was punched, and that the pastor had a hand in the fracas. Pastor Henry says he will force Murray to retract those statements in which he charges the pastor with striking him. MRS. NEWTON" LOSES She Is Endeavoring to Obtain the Amount of a Policy on Her Husband’s Life. The suit of Mrs. Ensign D. Newton to recover $10,000, the amount of a life in surance policy on her husband, issued by the Mutual Reserve Fund Life Associa tion, ended in a mistrial in the Supreme Court yesterday afternoon. From the testimony adduced by Bar ricklo & Crouse, representing the plain tiff, it appeared that Mr. Newton had a policy issued by the defendant company in December, 1886. He died in April. 1900. The policy called for six assessments a year, which were paid regularly until December 29, 1898, but certain “due ex penses,” amounting to about $22 a year, were not paid, and the company notified Mr. Newton that his policy had lapsed. He at once forwarded the amount claim ed to be due, which was returned to him and when he died payment of the policy was refused. The defendant, through Lawyers Craig A. Marsh and G. T. Tyng. wanted to set up rules and amendments to regulations concerning the company. The plaintiff ' had not pleaded to them and objected to their admission, with the result that Jus tice Colilns consented to allow a mistrial of the case, when one juror had been withdrawn from the box. TO LOCATE LIEUT. MEYER’S GRAVE The officers of G. Van Houten Post are decidedly anxious to locate the grave of the late Lieutenant A. B. Meyer, who died between 1887 and 1891. He was bur led in Bay View Cemetery, but the rec ords concerning the exact spot of his grave have been lost. The Post has re ceived a stone from the Government, and wishes to place It at the soldier's grave. If It can be found. The veteran was a member of Van Houten Post. He was also a member of Company E. New York Volunteers. He was buried from Jackson avenue. DANCED FOR FOURTEEN HOURS One of the largest dances on record was held Monday night and Tuesday morning In BUtt’S Hall, Pine and Maple streets, in the Lafayette section. The dance was given under the direction of the First Catholic Association of that section. There were about fifty Poles present when the dance begat? at 7:30 Monday night.
