THE NEWS BUILDING Telephone Call Jersey City, 27L New YorU Office, 23 PARK ROW—(Room 42.) THE JERSEY CITY NEWS TO* Daily Papk* Published is Jersey City—Single copies one cent; subscription three dollars pw year I*EMeraiaiii the post office at Jersey City as second c At! business communications should be addressed to the City Pubushisu Company, all letters for pub lication to the Makaqinq Editok. FRIDAY, MAY 2, 1902._ This paper is Democratic in principles and is independent in its views on all local questions. Mr. Ervin ud the Baseball Players Prosecutor Erwin, it is asserted, has written a letter to every Chief of Police in the County demanding the suppress ion of all Sunday baseball games. He has further sent a copy of his circular to Sheriff Ruempler, adding an admoni tion that the law is being violated in this respect in many places in the County. Presumably Mr. Erwin has the crusa ding bee in his bonnet, and we may ex pect to have another chapter of sensa tionalizing over this sport, presumably with a view to impressing upon Governor Murphy’s mind the great efficiency of the Prosecutor and the appropeiateness of reappointing him when his term runs out next year. It appears to us that no meaner or more wanton method of self-advertise ment could be found than this. We re gard the game of baseball, whether play ed by professionals or amateurs, as ab solutely clean, moral and healthy. We consider that even on Sunday it may be regarded as doing an infinity of good. Rooking at it merely as a relaxation, we have a hearty, whole-souled sympa thy with the hard-worked young man, who spends his daylight hours six days a week over a bench or desk or a coun ter, in his desire to take part in a hust ling game if he has the skill, or to sit in the open air and sunlight admiring the skill of others, if his gifts go no further. There are not only thousands, but tens of thousands, of our men and boys who have enough darkness and drudgery in their work-a-day lives to entitle them to this modicum of medicine for soul and body. The game has Its moral side too. It is certain that the players and attendants are committing no serious evil while it lasts. A rough word or two may be rapped out now and again, but they will be far fewer than those which are spoken over the bar or on the street corner. In the excitement of the contest, there will be less tobacco consumed, and for some hours each afternoon the sale of intoxi cating drinks must be much reduced. Women and girls, who complain of cor ner gangs of young mashers, will also have relief, when the game is on. In a speech at Hasbrouck Institute, before the Woman's Club some two years ago, Edward Hoos, then Mayor, put the issue squarely to the ladies of the Town Improvement Department. “What do you expect the boys to do all the long Sunday afternoon if you stop all their means of healthy and harmless amusement? Where are they to go ex cept to the saloon or the street corner?’’ •—this was the question for which he left them to find an answer. Evidently Mr. Erwin's answer is:— “Let them go to the saloon and hang around the corners.’’ Mr. Erwin’s answer is cruel, it is stupid, it is retrograde; it tends to over throw the peace and order and impair the morals of the community. Has Mr. Erwin nothing better to at tend to? The last Grand Jury, of which Mr. George F. Peterson, also a Republi can, was foreman, made a presentment to the court pointing out sundry crimes and misdemeanors which were system atically committed, wholesale, through out the County. Why does not Mr. Er win give his attention to some of these, instead of inaugurating a persecution of that which is evil only in the minds of cranks and fanatics? Is it because some of the real offenders might take political revenge on him and his party while the baseball players are not organized and cannot hit back? Thu “journal'’ and the Sugar Question. Some of the “Evening Journal’s” statesmanship is screamingly funny. It suggested yesterday that if the Sugar Trust bad bought the Cuban sugar crop of last year, that crop should be debarred from the new tariff concessions which it is proposed to make in the interest of the Cuban planters and people. The “Journal" seems not to perceive that if this argument is good for any thing, it applies to all Cuban sugar crops. For, who is to buy raw sugar in this country for refining except the Sugar Trust? Practically, we believe, nobody at all? So, if Cuba is to get any boon, the Trust must, of necessity, be a sharer in it. The Republican party made this trust, and maintains it by the duties on refined sugar. A Republican organ should be the last to howl at it. By the way, we have a dreadful sus picion that the “Journal's” accomplished writer on National affairs has not grasp ed the difference between the Sugar Trust and the Beet Sugar Ring. His article, yesterday, suggested to a painful degree that he regarded them as one and the same thing. Mr. Fagan, Mr. Bata and the Posies We observe with great satisfaction that Mayor Fagan and his City Hall Commissioners have come around com pletely on the City Halt flower bed issue. The beds are to 1>e planted, and the fact that they are to be planted by contract may make us smile a little, but it causes us no discontent. We have not the slightest objection to His Honor arrang ing to fall soft on this or any other ques tion. When he finds he is wrong and can devise a way to get right without loss of personal dignity, he is quite right to take it. The date for the reception of bids for the posies is to be May 14. It is a trifle late in the season, but—well, better late than never. Of course, plans and speci fications have to be drafted and propos als must be solicited. Next year, unless Mayor Fagan forgets all about it, the contract can be made in February. We are done out of our tulips this year, but all will be ready for the June roses. Of course, we will have to forgive Mayor Fagan for taking his time to smoke out a Republican Commissioner, and deprive him of the only morsel of graft in his bailiwick. Ai to Pott Horiem Vetoes. The newspapers are making a great fuss over the time that Governor Mur phy is taking to dispose of the bills left for his action by the Legislature on its adjournment. The power of the Gover nor to act after adjournment has always been doubtful, and it was rumored lately that a suit would be brought to test it. An adverse judgment in such a suit might have the effect of plunging the State into chaos. Many hundreds of laws of many sessions would be affected, and it would take a special session and an enabling act, if one could be devised sufficiently for the purpose, to prevent public business literally from coming to a standstill. Just why there Is so much kick this year, We fail to see. It is true, the Gov ernor has signed some atrociously bad bills, but the presence of the Legislature would have no effect as regards these. The houses have no power save that of repeal over a measure to which the Ex ecutive has given his approval. As for the bills which the Governor has refused to sign, they are almost without except ion, so unmeritorious that we doubt if even the recent Legislature would think of passing them over his veto. The meddlers had better let well enough alone. Some years ago, some smart partisans dragged the Assembly district system into court, and some judges with technicality on the brain de cided it unconstitutional. Now, the very men who brought this about would give a small fortune to undo it; but they cannot. i GRAND ENTERTAINMENT. To Bo Given by tba Children of Mary of St. X>uoy’e Church. The members of the Children of Mary, Society of St. Lucy’s Church, have made arrangements for a grand festival to be held in St. Lucy's Hall, Grove and Sev enteenth streets, on Thursday evening. May 29. It promises to be the grandest event held this season In the parish, and as all the young ladles are Indefatigable workera its success Is assured. J. C. CLUB'S PLEASING VAUDEVILLE The vaudeville entertainment given last evening In the Jersey City Club, under the auspices of the club, was ft most suc cessful and pleasing one. The programme was all that could be wished for and con tained many new numbers. Elmer P. Ransom gave a clever exhibition of sleight-of-hand, after which the Misses Ethel and Alice Elmore rendered several duets. Walter N. Walters entertained with humorous stories and songs and Miss Lllliam Bender rendered a violin solo, the Lilian Bender rendered a violin solo, the were Interesting, and the songs rendered by the Yosco Troubadours were Indeed good. Mile. Alma closed the performance with a number of beautiful poses. HOLY NAME’S EUCHRE At St. Michael's Hall, Erie and Tenth street?, Thursday evening, May 29, the Holy Name Society of that church will give a progressive euchre and reception. There will be one hundred and fifty prizes to be awarded the winners and dancing will take places at the con clusion of the euchre. ORGANIZED AID’S ANNUAL MEETING The annual meeting of the Organised Aid Society of Jersey City will be held tonight in the First Presbyterian Church on Emory street on the Heights. Report* will be read and plans discussed for carrying on the work during the coming POISE IS EVERYTHItlG So Mrs. Mary King Physical Culturist Tells the Wo man's Club. CLOSIIG- MEBTI5T& Mra Hudspeth-Ben3on’s Con vincing Plea for Hsr New Reading Room. The closing meeting and social of the Jersey City Woman’s .'Club held in Has brouek Hall yesterday afternoon proved a most delightful affair. The social pro gramme was in the hands of Miss A. B. Myers, chairman of Education, a guaran tee in itself of something unusually fine, and the business meeting which pre ceded it was short and to the point. Mrs. Henry H. Brinkerhoff, Mrs. E. T. Baker, Mrs. Arthur and Mrs. Martin Dager, the four new members to be re ceived, were not present. Nevertheless the secretary read their names, request ing that they arise, and the club mem bers applauded, just from force of habit and good breeding. Three new names, Mrs. W. C. Cudiipp, Mrs. A. Mitchell and Mrs. George N. Culver, were proposed, and five resigna tions, Mrs. Jacob Anderson, Mrs. M. F. Stires, Mrs. Throckmorton, Miss Sher wood and Mrs. Matthew Jenkins, were read and accepted with regret. Mrs. George W. Case, as federation secretary, reported that the spring meet ing of that organization would be held in Montclair, May 22, and told the ladles what a nice time they would have if they all went. The entertaining clubs will be the Town Improvement Club, the Wed nesday Afternoon Club, the Social Litera ture and All Around Club, the D. A. K. and the Woman’s Club of Montclair. The following delegates to the State Federa tion were then appointed:—Mrs. George W. Case, Mrs. Daniel Van Winkle, Mrs. J. A. Dear, Mrs. J. M. C. Thomas, with Mrs. Henry Harrison, Mrs. Willard Fisk, Mrs. Robert Gray and Mrs. Joseph Gil more, alternates. It was also voted to send a formal in vitation .to the Spring Federation asking the New' Jersey clubs to come to Jersey City for their annual meeting in the fall. Mrs. Hudspeth-Benson said she had a little matter of business to bring before the club and, taking the floor, spoke of the reading room recently opened at the junc tion of Montgomery street and Bergen avenue, reminding the ladles that they would find a contribution box in the back of the hall after the meeting. '•Just think of those poor men,” said she, speaking of the trolley employes, "standing out there in the rain for the past three or four years. They are what they call trippers, and they had no place to go in out of the wet but the saloon— and they are not allowed to go in there. Now they have a nice reading room not a place with bare benches and bare walls —but a beautiful room with curtains, floor covering and a desk. You’ll all And a box down at the end of this room. It is not a glass box, so that your neigh bor can see whether you put in a dollar or a penny, but it is just a shoe box with a slit in the top.” Mrs. Benson sat down mid a shower of applause, followed, it is to be hoped, by u shower of dimes, quarters and bills. Here the programme was handed over to Miss Meyers, chairman of Education, who introduced the speaker without fur ther preliminary, save for a piano solo, -Murmuring Zephyrs” (Jensen), rendered by Mr. Benjamin Monteith, professor of music in Hasbrouck Institute, in a most fascinating and masterful manner. He also gave the magic fire music from the “Walkuie” as an encore. The speaker, Mrs. Mary King, of New York, a physical culturist of note, spoke on "Poise.” She is a charming lecturer, with a sweet, soft, but far reaching voice, which was the envy of many of the ladies present, who constantly labor under the difficulty of not being heard. "Ail life,” said she, "is a completion, but the sadness Is our lack of proportion. We over educate the mental at the ex pense of the physical.” Then, after warning her audience not to mistake poise for pose, she went on to explain that in poise everything must be in perfect unity. "A three-legged stool,” continued she, "depends for success no more on its size than on its perfect unity and poise. The success of the crouching lion depends no more on his size than on his perfect poise. The success of the bird In flight depends no more on his size than on his perfect poise.” Ill iiiese uiicc -- plained, were the three kinds of poise— the state of latent, as in the three-legged stool, the potential, as in the crouching lion, and the dynamic, or active, as in the flying bird. •'Human life,’’ said she, ‘'most neariy approaches the static. It is maintained by equality. One cannot rest absolutely and plan what one is going to wear in the evening. Did you ever try to real when angry? Did you every try to study with a tooth ache? Human happiness is as dependent upon human hea.th as health is upon muscle. The spiritual education that does not demand and util ize the mental and physical is crippled, the mental education that does not de mand the spiritual is inadequate and the physical that does not demand the men tal and spiritual Is all wrong. So In the name of poise I would ask a special edu cation to develop the mental, spiritual and physical. “Woman for centuries, alas, developed the emotional or spiritual without thj mental. When the higher education came she took the mental greedily. Poise was not sought for. Now an over mentallzed woman Is Just as ugly and unlovely as at; over physicalized woman is coarse and rude or an over emotionalized woman Is silly. Fashion has made perfect types almost obselete. not only of women but of men. It has been said that no child Is allowed to develop normally from the time It begins to wear shoes. “If I cannot keep happy and healthy at housework 1 cannot keep happy and healthy as a millionaire. If I have not pelse in my present station I will not have It in any station. Uncongenial cir cumstance IS an inadequate excuse with i' 1 Hood's PIUs Do not gripe nor Irritate the alimen tary canal.

PERFECT Tooth Powder Used by people of refinement fbr over a quarter of a century. poise as its standard. A perfect body cannot exist out of harmony with the mental and spiritual being. The religion of poise makes each moment tell for itself whenever It is used.” Miss Margaret Gllray, of Missouri, who has a sweet soprano voice, with well rounded tones, concluded the programme with several delightful solos. Then followed a few directions on how to bring up a physical culture baby, one of the chief requisites being a firm hard mattress without pillow for the strength ening of back and neck muscles. “Teach sweet, low tones from the first,” was another rule. A general social with refreshments con* eluded the afternoon. MONROEUPHELO First Debate of Young Men’s Catholic Diocesan Union Establishes His Famous Doc trine. The first public debate and entertain ment of the Catholic Young Men’s Dio cesan Union of the Newark Diocese, was held last evening at St. Bridget's Hall, on Mercer street, and it drew a very large audience. The subject the young men de bated was a very interesting one, and the large audience showed its appreciation of the strong arguments by both sides by enthusiastic applause. The question considered was, “Resolved, that the United States should resist by force, if need be, the colonization of any part of South America by any European power." The chairman of the meeting, Counselor Daniel P. Byrnes, after a few introduc tory remarks, introduced the Rev. B. M. Bogan, President of the Young Men’s Na tional Union, who spoke about the rapid progress the union had made in the pa^t year. Mr. Joseph P. Tumilty then gave an address on the “Dulsite Snake.’’ As semblyman John J. Treacy gave an excel lent address on "Christianity and Prog ress," which was well received. A song by Miss K. Bradley, “The New Eorn King,” followed, and Chairman Byrnes then announced that the debate would take place. Seated on the stage were the following gentlemen, who acted as judges; Mayor M. Fagan, Senator Robert S. Hudspeth, James F. Minturn of Hoboken. Assembly man James Hamlll and David Barry. Also on the platform were:—The Rev, John Ryan, rector of St. Bridget’s Church; the Rev. William A. Keyes, the Rev. B. M Bogan and Assemblyman J. Treacy. The first speaker introduced for the af firmative was Mr. P. J. Hayes, who is a graduate of Cooper Union Debating School. In speaking for his side Mr. Hayes proved himself to be a logical speaker. He said, in part:— "We should not allow any foreign power to gain a foothold on the Western Hemi sphere. The Monroe Doctrine is a good doctrine. If it was not for that doctrine we would be In continual warfare and millions and millions would have to be spent in war with foreign nations. We would have to maintain an army of 500,009 men.” Mr. E. J. Cogan, of Paterson, a graduate of Setoh Hall College, the first negative speaker, said:— “The United States should fight their way clear and resent any attempt at col onization o fthe Western Hemisphere." He made a bitter attack upon the Monroe Doctrine and said that it was a weak one, and If the people of the United States wanted the doctrine enforced he thought the people did not understand it thoroughly. It is an obstacle, he claim ed, to progress, and this is a progressive age. Mr. Mark A. Salkan, a graduate or at. Peter's College, confined his argument to an attack upon the speech of his oppon ent, and he proved to the satisfaction of all that his opponent was wrong time and again. Mr. Joseph G. Wolber, of St. Benedict's College, Newark, put up a strong argu ment for the negative side. Senator Hudspeth, on behalf of the judges, congratulated the young men of both sides for the strong arguments they presented, and announced that the judges had decided in favor of the affirmative side. The entertainment included witticisms by Maud King: song, “Red, Red Rose," by Leo Whelan; baton swinging, by Major Richard Barry, and comic songs by Miss Kittle Culiinan. Miss Clara Quinn was the accompanist. FATHER BOYLAN ILL Rhsnmatlsm Confines Him to fks Hospital But Ho Will Soon Bs Oat The Rev. John J. Boylan, rector of St. Lucy's R. C. Church, Grove and Sixteenth streets, has been confined to St. Francis's Hospital for the past week with a bad attack of rheumatism. It was reported last evening that he was progressing favorably under the good care of the physicians and Sisters m charge of the hospital, and It Is expected that he will be able to attend church next Sunday and preach the sermon at the last mass. BATTLE OF MANILA BAY Dtwajr Club Obliged to Postpone It* Calibration Until Next Weak. The Dewey Club of the Fifth ward, on* of the most prominent social organisa tions of the lower seotlon of the city, in tended to celebrate the victory of Manila Bay last evening at Its clubhouse at Montgomery xnd Brunswick streets, but it had to be postponed until neat Mon day evening.'

HERE ABOUT JUNE FIRST No Steps Have Been Taken to Stop the Unwelcome Vlsitora (Special to "The Jersey City News.”) NEW BRUNSWICK. May 2. 1902.-Pro fessor John B. Smith, of Rutgers College. New Jersey State entomologist, whose crusade against mosquitoes has made him prominent for some time, has another in sect brood under his attention fust now. In the forest and orchard lands of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and many other States, the periodical cicada, or “seventeen-year locusts,” are slowly maturing, and about the first of June will leave their ethary beds for an upward flight. This insect, of which Professor 3mith has a number of fine specimens, is one of the most curious creatures In existence. It is from an inch to an inch and a haif long, the body being dark, while the wings are glassy with delicately defined veins. The eyes are orange color. With the exception of butterflies, there is scarcely any Insects known that are more beautiful. me uruuy uue mis year last apvvaieu in 1SS5 and atackedt young trees. The ten der shoots were split by the clcades and In the cavities eggs were deposited. The trees attacked were killed, and the falling branches left the eggs In the ground. There for seventeen years the Insects have been developing. This week Profes sor Smith received a bottleful of speci mens taken from the ground near Baltl tpore, where the Insects mature about two Weeks earlier than In New Jersey. The wings of these specimens have just begun to appear. By June 1 the brood In New Jersey will leave the earth and Its brethren in New York a little later. Millions upon millions of the insects will proceed to attack the trees to deposit their eggs. For a month the ravages will continue, then the cicada will disappear almost as suddenly as it 1 arrived. The creatures do not live long j after depositing the eggs. Their short ; month of life after seventeen years of in activity in the sod is devoted entirely to ! the perpetuation of the species. The last big invasion of the cicada was in 1S94. This, of course, was a different brood from the one due this year, and its successors will arrive in 1911, These two broods are the largest known in New Jer sey. There are two others, but so small as to be hardly noticeable. "The present brood.” said Professor Smith, when asked if he could give any In formation about the cicada, "will extend throughout New Jersey, the Southern part of New York, the northern part of Penn sylvania and westward about to the Mis sissippi, and more or less South. In New York State the Insects will be most plenti ful along the Hudson River and In NeW Jersey along the Delaware. Warnings have been sent to fruit raisers in New Jersey not to set out any young trees this spring because of the coming of the inseccts. “No steps will be taken to destroy the brood. In the first place It would be im possible to successfully combat them, and in the Becond place the evil Is greatly counteracted by the English sparrows, which attack and destroy the cicada In large numbers. The sparrows do not de vour the insects, but simply kill and tear them to pieces. Why the sparrows do this I do not know,but there seems to be some strong natural antipathy between the two. There are twenty-one Known broods or cicada in this country. The colonies in the North appear at intervals of seven teen years, while those In the South de velop every thirteen years. I do not know Just where the present brood will appear In greatest abundance In New Jeisey since I was not In the State in 1885 when It came before. I look for the cicada to ap pear about Memorial Day.” The male cicada 1$ a singer, and his clicking note In the woods is a sound that once heard Is not soon forgotten. The female is a stinger, while the male Is not, so that people desiring to examine the cicada should be careful to handle tae ones that sing. On the left wings of all the insects that appeared In 1SW was the letter “W" clear ly defined by veins In the filmy structure. Throughout the country the superstttio s declared that this was an indication that there would be a war before the cicada again appeared, a prophecy that has beer, curiously fulfilled. DENOUNCED THE POLICE Bov Over Possession of Some Furnl tnro Settled at Station House. The police of the Montgomery street station were called In last night to settle a hot dispute over the possession of some furniture which was In the home of Mrs. J. Black, of Orchard street. Spencer Lee, of Jordan avenue, claims to have pur chased some of the furniture which was In Mrs. Black's home. Mr*. Black desired to move downtown last evening and to take all of the furni ture with her. Lee objected and said that he would rather die than see his property carted away. Lee barred the door of Mrs. Black’s home and insisted that he be given his furniture. Finally Mrs. Black and Lee went to the station house and there Sergeant Wade heard the dispute over again. He seemed to think that Mrs. Black should be al lowed to move her furniture and sent Patrolman Soper to the house to see that Lee did not Interfere. Mrs. Black moved all the furniture while Lee looked on and denounced the police for the part they took in the matter. SECOND WARD DEMOCRATS The meeting of the Executive Commit tee of the Second Ward Democratic Club that was to take place last evening at Lie clubhouse, Erie and Thirteenth streets, was not held on account of a quorum not being present. It will take place Thurs day evening. May 8, when considerable business of importance will be transacted.
