The “Journal" and the Beef Trus
One of the screamingly funny things
about the ‘'Journal'- is its way of fdrget
ting itself, once in a while, and blurting
out a patch of truth through sheer inad
vertence. Yesterday it quite forgot the
attitude which it has been maintaining
upon the Beef Trust question, and quite
came over to the Democratic side.
In an article headed “Price of Beef to
Go Still Higher," it used a number of ex
pressions and told a number of facts
which are absolutely true, but which are
in absolute contradiction of the claims
v.'.ich its own editorials were making all
last week. Thus, it begins with the fol
Despite the pillorying which the Beef
Trust is receiving at the hands of the
press and public on account of its cor
nering of the meat market, the price
of beef threatens to take a further
flight upwards. The Trust boosted
prices in Chicago yesterday so that the
rate demanded was from 10 to 15> cents
per 100 pounds higher than the day
Readers of the “Journal'' will recall
that, last week, thO "pillorying’' of the
Seef Trust was being described as a hot
air campaign, and the public spirited
organ of Republicanism was vituperating
Congressman McDermott and the Demo
cratic members of the Legislature from
Hudson County for daring to pillory the
- The “Journal,” yeaterday, went on tO
f* ■»,< r ■ ■ <
nuote an independent provision dealer in
this city to the effect that the Beef Trust
ras evidently preparing for a grand coup,
in which not only beef but mutton, lamb,
pork and other staples were to be boosted
up out of reach of all but wealthy con
sumers. This dealer was quoted as say
“Watch the great cold storage plants
closely,” said he today, “and note the
vast quantities of eggs, butter and
poultry being delivered at them at
hours when not too many of the pry
ing public are around. I prophesy that
next winter will witness a revelation
in the way of fancy prices unless the
tactics of the men engaged in the
colossal conspiracy are sidetracked by i
the Federal Government.”
The "Journal” printed the above yester
day, and yet It is not open to doubt that’
tomorrow it will fight as bitterly as ever
against Congressman McDermott’s Re
posal to smash the corner by placing all
meats on the free list.
The ’‘Journal" does not stand up for
the Republlco-Beef Trust out of Ignorance
or misunderstanding. Its own news col
umns prove this. It Is on the side of the
monopoly because, like all other represen
tative Republican agencies, it holds the
welfare of the people in absolute dis
The public be damned is its motto.
Etpsblioui Cheap John Building
The Republican party Is identifying it
self with two Cheap John building plans
for this city, which the people ought to
* fight against with all their vigor. It ap
pears that Congress is likely to pass a bill
to add a wing to thO present Post G.tlce,
and there is reason to fear that the
Eoard of Finance will Inflict a sort of liv
ery staule structure on the city under
the guise of a public bath house, for the
sake of giving Mayor Fagan’s advertising
plan at least a semblance of realization.
One of these schemes Is exactly as ..ad
as the other. It Is far more wicked on the
part of Congress to erect a new wing to
our Post Office than to do nothing at ail.
If we get nothing this year, we may get a
new building next year. If we have a
wing built this year, we shall probably
have to wait for a new building at least
a decade. The proposal to throw us back
in this fashion Is simply atrocious.
To build a bath, as Mr. Rowland's plans
propose, of plain appearance, entirely
with common brick is a crime against
the progress of the city. Such a building
constructed of common brick would be
apt to be unsanitary. No up-to-date city
would think of using such a material for
a bath. It is the sure way to promote
skin and eye and other germ diseases.
Besides, this city needs beautifying. It
needs beautifying more than It needs
baths. The man who would put up an
ugly public building ought to be deported
to Secaucus and planted in the swamp. It
would only cost a few thousand dollars
more to put up a sanitary and ornamen
tal structure such as New York is plan
ning to erect. Let us have ths right
thing or nothing.

-What all decen t men would like' to
know about this man is when he pro
poses to take some steps ,to vindicate
himself from the charge of rape which
Mrs, Barker makes against him, and
which he has never answered in any
way. If he is innocent, how can he bear
to live under this accusation without
even trying to refute it.
iBy the way, is it not time the Court
of Pardons took cognizance of the case
of Thomas G. Barker, that most cruelly
victimized of all living men?
Boiler Compound Price*.
The argftmc-nt of .Fifiance Commissioner
Abernethy- regarding the bill" of F. Patt
foerg & Co. for boiler compound furnished
the city is neither very square nor very
convincing. The company asked 76 cents
a gallon from the city. Mr. Abernethy
says the United States Government pays
only- CO cents. But‘as the government
probably uses a thousand gallons a year
for one used by the city, the argument
hardly bold* good.
How many gallons do we use a year,
and what is the amount of the proposed
saving of IS cents a gallon?

Death of Congressman Sal
mon Has Stirred Things
Dp in the Fourth
SPECIAL ELECTION SOON
Already the Candidates for
Nomination On Both
Sides Are Getting
(Special to “The Jersey City News.”)
TRENTON. May 9, 1902.—Governor Mur
phy has decided that under the law it
Will be his duty to order a special elec
tioh to fill the vacancy in the New Jersey
delegation in Congres caused by the j
death of Congressman Joshua S. Salmon,
of the Fourth District..
The Governor was at first disposed to
let the matter lie over, believing it would ,
be needless to till the vacancy until the
regular election In the fall.
Had such a course been pursued it
would have resulted in several complica
tions. as the new district lines' will then
go into effect, but apart from this it has
been discovered that the Federal law
makes it imperative for a Governor to
call an election forthwith in the event of
the death of a Congressman more than
two months before the expiration of his
There was also some doubt as to
whether In the event of an election be
ing called the new Congressman should
be chosen from the present Fourth Dis
trict, consisting of Sussex, Warren, Hun
terdon qnd Morris Counties, or from a
new district formed by the reapportion
ment which is about to go into effect.
This question, however, was readily dis
posed of in favor of the election from
the present district. To do otherwise
would be a practical impossibility, inas
much as the election will be to till an
ur.expired term, while by the redistrict
ing the four Counties in the Fourth Dis
trict will be divided among three of the
Governor Murphy yesterday asked At
torney Genera] McCarter for an opinion
on the subject, and this will be submitted
to the Governor today, although there iS
no doubt among lawyers who have con
sidered the matter as to what the opinion
It being taken tor granted therefore
that the election will be held at an early
date and that the representative will be
chosen by the Counties of Sussex, War
ren, Hunterdon and Morris, politicians
have been speculating as to who will ije
the candidates. The district mentioned is
so certainly Democratic that almost the
entire Interest centres in the nominee of
that party whose election is assured in
Tne man most prominently spoken thus
far is Senator Dewis J. Martin, who has
represented eU3sox county in the Senate
since 1SS8, having one more year to.serve
in that body. Senator Martin has not.an
nounced himself as a candidate, but his
friends are inclined to believe he would
like to round off his political caree- by a
term in Congress.
It is possible on the other hand that
Morris county may lay claim to til? nomi
nation on the ground of that bGng the
home of the Congressman whose unex
plred term is to be filled. In suuh an
event it is possible that former Senator
Elias C. Drake of Morrjs county may be
come a candidate.
Senator Drake was a candidate for the
Democratic nomination against Congress
man Salmon and it is by no means unlike
ly that he may again enter the list.
Thomas Hoagland, of Rockaway, Mor
ns county, has also been suggested as a
possible aspirant for the honor, although
there is as yet no positive ground that he
will seek the place. Mr. Hoaglmd has
been active in the politics of his county
and was at one time a candidate for Sena
Senator Johnston Cornish of Warren
has been spoken of, but intimate friends
have ventured the opinion that he would
prefer to retain his seat In the State Sen
ate than to return to Congress in which
he has already served.
There is little interest by the Repub
licans in the making of a nomination sure
to be followed by defeat, and, as a conse
quence few possible candidate! are spoken
I of. One name men .l ined is that of Judge
Henry Hunt, of Sussex, who was elevat
ed to the Dench at me tune t-roseeu:or
John L. Swayze beeam" private secretary
to Governor Murpnv, Judge Henry Hus
ton taking his place as prosecutor. It is
not to be suppose! that Judge Hunt
would welcome the nomination and
should he conse.it to run it would only
be on account of political presence which
he would well avoid.
The Fourth district gave Congressman
Salmon a plurality of 1.644 in 1900 and
2.659 in 1S9S. Under the redistricting act
of 1901 Morris and Warren counties will
go into the new Fifth district with Union.
Sussex will be in the Sixth district with
Bergen and Passaic, while Hunterdon will
go Into the new Fourth district with Mer
cer and Somerset.
The Republicans of Mercer are anxious
(hat the election of Congressman Sal
mon’s successor be held at the earliest
date possible and have been not a little
worried at the prospect of its being de
ferred until the regular election In the
fall. The reason for this is obvious.
Should the election be deferred the resi
dents of Hunterdon would be voting for
two Congressmen at the same time, a
condition which would only serve to bring
out the Democratic majority of that
county more strongly than ever and
would lessen the already diminished
chances of Republican success in this uis
It Is interesting to note that under the
rules of Congress the Congressman select
ed for the unexplred term wrill receive a
full term’s salary amounting to 210.000
Should a Congressman ta.ke his seat and
serve but the opening day of a session he
would receive an entire year’s salary.

Hugh De Payen Commandery
Parades and Listens to
The members of Hugh De Payen Com
mandery, 'No. 1, Knights Templar, of the
Heights, assembled In their lodge room
and headed by a platoon of mounted
police and a band paraded to the Lafay
ette Methodist Church bn Pacific avenue
last evening, to listen to an address de
livered by the pastor, the Rev. William
Redheffer. There were one hundred and
ninety-two members present. There were
also members of the order from several
out of town lodges. The platform was
decorated with palms and red roses. The
men presented a fine appearance as they
marched into the church.
Pastor Redheffer took for his subject,
"The Knight of the Twelfth Century and
the Knight of the Twentieth Century
Forging *Their Way Toward the Ideal
Knight." The pastor delivered a lengthy
address, describing the history of the or
der. He said among other things:—
"You honor me on this occasion in as
sembling before me and giving me an
opportunity to honor a cause that I be
lieve in. I am in perfect sympathy with
your order, a part of which path I have
travelled. Who can look into the past
of masonry and not be moved? It has
been a source of inspiration, rather Its
history has, as has our church and mis
sions. If your past history can inspire
one whose face has not been turned to
ward It, -what ought it not do for one
who has followed 'It.”
After the address the members filed
Into the chapel where the ladies of the
church served a delightful supper. The
ladles who assisted were:—
'Mis9 Nichol. Mrs. Dames, Mrs. Stevens,

MRS. DENISON IN
Eastern Clubs in Women’s
Club Federation Win
[ EOS ANGELES. Cal,, .May 9. 1902.-The
j Eastern clubs of the National Federation
; of Women’s Clubs have at last won the
i day in getting in an Eastern president.
Mrs. D. T. *S. Denison, president of
Sorosis and ex-vice president of the Na
tional Federation, was elected yesterday
by an overwhelming majority. This prob
ably means that the goal for which the
Eastern clubs have fought so long, con
ventions in the East and Easterr^ control
of the Federation, will be realized. It is
probable that New York will witness that
wonderful gathering of club wcmen,
known as the Federation, within her own
boundaries two years hence.
As was expected, the partisans of Mrs.
Piatt-Decker of Denver, were out in
great force. They, nominated her for
president from the floor and her name
was chalked up on the blackboard along
side that of Mrs. Denison.
Mrs. Decker demanded that the Presi
dent remove it. After considerable warm
argument Mrs. Lowe ordered a line
drawn through Mr.®. Decker’s name, but
this didn't seem to dampen the enthu
siasm of her followers*, and they began
electioneering for her.
The ballot respited in the election of
Mrs. Denison by 067 votes to 253 votes for
Mrs. Decker. The complete ticket is as
follows:—President, Mrs. D. T. S„ Deni
son, New York; First Vice President,
•Mr?. Robert J. Burdette, California; Sec
ond Vice President, Mrs. Emma A. Fox,
Michigan; Recording Secretary, Mrs. W. i
T. Coad. South Dakota; Corresponding j
Secretary, Miss Louise Pappenhe m. South

Texas; Mrs. J. Humphrey, Kansas; Mrs.
L. H. Williamson, Minnesota; Mrs. Win.'
Eliicott, Maryland; Mrs. W. W\ Boyd,
Missouri; Mrs. W. A. Neldon, Utah.
Mrs. Coonloy-Ward on behalf of the
Illinois delegation offered a resolution
that for the next tw’o years the Federation
devote itself to the initiation, maintenance
and improvement of child labor laws, and
it was carried. __
