JUNE 27, 1002._ Tills PAPER IS DEMOCRATIC IS PRINCIPLES AND IS IXDEPESm dent is its views ox all LOCAL QVES1IOSS. SOMEBODY BLUNDERED. It is really too bad that Mr. Angel's young lady stenographer should have made such a blunder about his relations to Messrs. Heist & Voting. Anybody can see that she must liave Iteen mistaken in saying that lie was counsel to the groat oil tank promoters. He says so himself aud that settles it. Of course a stenographer in a law office has no means of knowing about such tilings. She only writes her employer's letters and copies his legal papers and keeps Ins books and sends out his bills. So how should she know who was a client and who was only a visitor at the office? You see it’s nonsense. As to that test which Mr. Angel says was made in his presence at no par ; ticular place and no particular time as to the explosive properties of Messrs. Heist & Young's oil. it is quite improper to say that Mr. Angel is telling a lie. That is a coarse and brutal expression and Mr. Angel himself got well shaken up for using it n couple of days ago. Mr. Angel is not lying: certainly not. Per haps he is joking—yes. that is It: lie is joking. He is a great joker. So let us all laugh for it is really very funny, the funniest thing that has happened since Tom McEwan and Sam Dickinson told what they thought of each other in the columns.of the “Journal.” Just what Mr. Angel’s colleagues in the Fire Bonrd will think of those secret tests, we are at a loss to gauge. We should expect they would size up the proceedings as a game of freeze-out. WHOLESALE HAPPINESS. Hear the mellow wedding b '11s, Golden bells! , What a world of happiness their harmony foretells! It was the joyous privilege of “Tho News" yesterday to chronicle no fewer than nineteen matrimonial contract* all signed, sealed and delivered in this city between the hours of three and ten o’clock on the afternoon of Wednesday. They took up all the news space in a page of this paper, and even then only the dry material facts were all that we had room for. and the happiness and rapture with which the great American poet fills his famous verse had to be left to the imagination of the reader. Another great American poet exclaims:— Oh. happy day, whereon another household finds its birth Among the myriad homes of earth. Then at least nineteen times blessed must have been yesterday which added nineteen happy homes to this community, happy to welcome them. Leaving to the poets the suggestion of the joys of the occasion, its prosaic meaning is still rich in guggestiveness. It cannot have escaped the general ob servation that this season is unusually rich in marriages. The year 1902, we should judge from newspaper records, Is far ahead of any recent year in the number of unions which are taking place. It is a sign of good times. Ihe young men have money and prospects, and they are putting their good fortune to the best use. The marriage market is always a reflection from the marts of trade. When prices are low and transactions infrequent, beauty and love find no takers at any price; but when money is flying and trade is rushing, there are always crowds of eager bidders about Hymen s stand. In this city, the frequency of marriage has a special local significance. There is a fine generation of young men and women just maturing here, whose parents settled in Jersey City some quarter century ago, when they were young married folk themselves. The proportion of young faces op the cars and in the BtreetB is unusually great. And the girls—well, one need only look at them to understand why marriages are so frequent. The only wouder is that the Dominies get time for their meals between weddings. We advise the boys to hurry up for fear there may be none left for the slowcoaches. Well, here’s good luck to all the June brides and bridegrooms. May they 2nd the marriage state all that their fondest hopes anticipated. May they all buy lots, and build homes and people them in due time with the brides and grooms of 1927, and may the plenty which brings them together today bless them throughout their lives. OUR POPULISTIC MAYOR.. Mayor Fagan made his great bid for the populistically inclined vote of Jer sey City, yesterday, by an onslaught on the corporations and some of the rich men of the town, in which the element of malice was by no means wanting. The general proposition w'as not unworthy of a Kansas statesman in the palmy days of Peffer. It amounted to orders to a large number of our industries to get out of Jersey City and find locations elsewh ere. It does not need much knowledge of local history to understand that those which are hit hardest are those which in one way or another have relations with Mr. Fagan’s political opponents. It is certain that except the Pennsylvania Railroad, which is included for obvious reasons, not a single Repnblican interest is assailed by His Honor. But the blows dealt at prominent Democrats, especially those personally obnoxious to the Mayor and big intimates, are as conspicuous as the City Hall itself. That the assessment of property in Jersey City contains some flaws, it is nnnecessary to deny. Nobody has ever denied it. But that Mr. Fagan’s tabulated array represents anything within the bounds of sanity only himself imagines. It is certain that those who prepared it for him had neither belief in it nor honesty of purpose in fabricating it. It has the twofold purpose of bidding for the unthinking vote of such as hate wealth for its own sake, and of giving worry and annoyance to certain individuals. The document, by the way, has no official character. It is a personal ad monition—a personal impertinence, in fact—addressed to Messrs. Dayton and Hoos of the Tax Board. Of course, it is not a message: a message could be ad dressed only to the whole Board as a unit. We doubt if Mr. Hoos or Mr. Dayton will be seriously alarmed by His Honor's threats of legal means of compulsion. What means may there be at his disposal? Perhaps he may have Mr. Record go before the Board of Appeals in belia If of the city. He certainly can do so: but he will find that there remain the State Board of Taxation and the courts, which are not friendly to Populism. So far as we can see, the only effect of the Mayor’s letter will be to greatly increase the difficulty in the way of an enforced increase in the town ship assessments by the County Board of Equalisation. How can they be ac cused of assessing the property under their charge below the average, when the Mayor of Jersey City himself can be quoted to prove that Jersey City is as de linquent as they. THE MOST UNKINDEST CUT OF ALL. Nobody did more to elect Mayor Fagan than Edward Hoos. Yet we find His Honor charging that Edward Hoos’s property at Nos. 71 and 73 Newark avenue is really worth $27,000 while it is assessed at only $13,000. Is this what is eailed Spartan indifference to friendship, or what is it? Alas, the ingratitade of politicians' PATTISC N IN PENNSYLVANIA. success.. lie is one of the most conspicuously honest and efficient men in the United States. The campaign is to be waged entirely on State issues the infamies of Quayisin, ripper bills, treasury looting and oj>en political corruption. The people of Pennsylvania are sick of present conditions and it is highly probable that Mr. Pattison will lie elected. If Grover Cleveland is not to be the Democratic nominee for President in 1904, Mr. Pattison will be a highly available candidate. BASEBALLERS’ RIGHTS. If any more persons are arrested for playing baseball on Sundays in spite of the police justices' rulings, it is to be hoped they will remember that the law protects them, and that they can gain redress by civil suits for damages against all police officials concerned, from Chief Murphy down. It is time this persecution was stopped. THE SUMMER SCHOOL REPAIRS. We only find fault when hare to, so we have a pleasure in endorsing the prompt action of the Finance Board in thus early providing for the summer school repairs. This is a useful public service. H-O-O-D-O-O! The New York “Press” speaks of Colonel Toffey as a G. O. P. mascot. Wonder what Saul Dickinson thinks of him. WHERE IS HIS HONOR AT? It must have given Mayor Fagan inexpressible delight to hear the cheers for Tom McEwan up in the Twelfth Ward on Wednesday evening. Or is Fagan coquetting with the Independents? MISS ARMSTRONG FETED Popular Young Teacher Given a Luncheon Before Her Ocean Trip. Miss Anna E. Armstrong, a teacher in the grammar department of Xo. 20 School, on Danforth avenue, was ten- j dered a luncheon at the school yesterday j afternoon by her fellow teachers of the | primary and grammar departments. Miss Armstrong was presented with a j handsome steamer rug by the teachers j and a fountain pen by the members of i tiie graduating class. Miss Maud Bade, J one of tiie teachers, made the presen- | tation speech, and then read a humorous j poem which she composed, describing a | town of Europe. It was a merry party that partook of the delicacies provided, and there were addresses by ad the teachers. The pu pils cheered Miss Armstrong. Miss Armstrong expects to leave on July 4 for Europe with a large party of friends. -A GILMORE CETS THE PRIZE j — Governor Makes Second Regi ment’s Colonel Brigadier General. [Special to “The Jersey City News.”] TRENTON, June 27, 1SX>2—Gov- 1 ernor Murphy yesterday appoint- ! ed Colonel Quincy O’M. Gilmore to the command of the Second Bri gade, N. G. N. .T., to succeed the late Gen. W. H. Cooper of Camden. This is the end of a hitter fight between the Second and Third Regiments over the selection of a commander for the bri gade. The Second Regiment field officers were in favor of Col. Gilmore, and those of the Third stood for Col. Thomas S. Chambers of this city. Two attempts at an election resulted in a deadlock and the Governor took advantage of the act passed last winter which gave him the power to appoint brigade commanders when the regimental officers were un able to elect. The question of the constitutionality of the act has been raised, but it is un derstood that Col. Chambers will not contest. The appointment means the transfer of brigade headquarters from Camden to Trenton. It also means the advancement of subordinate officers. ENGINEERS’ STAG Successful Inaugural Entertainment of the Union Steam Mon. The inaugural stag given by Local Xo. 119, Independent Union Steam En gineers of Hudson County, at the Ave nue House proved a success in every way. The attendance was gratifying!}' large, representatives being present from most of the other locals allied with the Central I.abor Union and United Build ing Trades Council. The programme was exceptionally good and while the guests were enjoying corncob pipes and liquid refreshments they were entertain ed by the following:—Henke and Eder rnann, musical comedians; Meyer Bros., musical selections; Joseph Cooney, James Dunn, Robert Howe and John Speer, songs. An impressive address on the ad vantages of unionism was delivered by President Cornelius Ford of the Central Labor Union, and Messrs. Kelleher, Keiper, Dunn, Quinn and others also spoke. The committee in charge, to which much credit is due, consisted of;—W. H. Knox, chairman; Major Scott. John Daly, F. L. Morris and D. Barclay. -« HOLY TRINITY EXCURSION. The Sunday school excursion of the Holy Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, of Mercer street, held their ex cut’siotr’jesterdny. As the weather was so delightful there was a very large at tendance. They went to Forest View Grove on the Hudson. -» PERSONAL The Rev. Frederick E, Mortimer will leave for the Catskills Wednesday, where he will stay during July ami August. The Rev. Joseph II.

Among the work ers for the piano fund were Elsie Ivoerle, Anna Smith, Ered Gross and Lillie Meyer. -♦ WHITTIER HOUSE OFFER Mr. Hartshorne Again Ask the City to Take Over the Kindergarten. A communication from Mr. Charles H. Hartshorne, one of the directors of the Whittier, in which lie offers again, at the sugegstion of Miss Bradford, to the city the kindergarten class of the Whit tier House, forty-five children, with two teachers, was received and read at last night’s meeting of the Board of Educa tion. Mr. Hartsliorne said in i..s letter that an offer was made a year ago to turn tliis class over to the city hut the offer was declined because of lack of room. Ther being now one school more the offer is made again, with or without the teach ers. The rooms hired by the \i hittier House for school purposes at Xo. 140 Sussex street, might lie used in ease of necessity. Tiie mater was referred to the Com mittee on Xo. 1 School and Xo. 1 Annex. -♦ SCHOOL APPOINTMENTS.

MISS BRAY’S MARRIAGE Former Jersey City Society Belle Weds in Europe— People Out of Town. The Keramic artists of this city, it would seem, have decided to take up a study course in nature as she is for the ; summer, unburdened with any sense of ! any other thought than pleasure, they are taking trips here and there to pleas ant spots out of town. Yesterday they visited tile Bronx, leaving home shortly after ten in the morning and not return ing until about eight at night, and even at that feel they have fallen so short of seeing all to be seen at the botanical and zoological gardens that another trip to the same place is under consideration. Although they did not go for study purposes, they could not help getting idea sfroin the beauties of the botanical gardens and even from the decorations and orcliiecture of the various buildings, to be brought into tiieir work next win ter. One of the things that impressed them most was the harmony of decora tion with architecture and appropriate uess of design. The snake house they found especially interesting. . * . Professor Wilson, of the High School, took his class in miuerology for an in structive outing to Coytesvilie on Wed nesday last. There are about thirty-five in the class and they all had a jolly time. They left in a stage coach about ten iu the morning, returnihg about si : in the evening. A most delightful spread was furnished by the young ladies of the class. A few years ago Prof. Wilson was in i the habit of taking his classes to Snake I Hill on these outings, hut their experi ences, while funny were not always pleasant. Of course, the pupils were shown the usual courtesies by Warden Osborne, who took them through the penitentiary and almshouse and lunatic asylum. It was in the last building one day that the most aristocratic young man of the class was seized by one of the harmless lunatics, hugged and recog nized as a long lost brother. On another occasion, the young ladies of the class had laid out a spread of all sorts of good things they had spent days in preparing, in one of the out houses near where the harmless idiots and prisoners were at work. The young ladies thought it would be a good idea to arrange their spread before going on the mineral hunt, so that everything would be ready when they came back about 1 o’clock. Spreading au extra cloth over the whole to keep the flies off, they closed the door and started off to investigate the quar ries. About 2 o’clock they returned, hnn gray as bears, and congratulating them selves upon their great foresight in pre paring everything beforehand. It was a sorry sight, however, that met their hun gry gaze. During the sojourn at the quarries the eheerful idiots and harm less prisoners had been refreshing them selves on the cake, biscuits and goodies of higher education, aud were profuse in their thauks. Of course the High School pupils had not the heart to ex plain that the feast had not been prepar ed especially for idiots and prisoners. * * ♦ Perhaps it was in memory of these events and perhaps it was on account of the smallpox epidemic that Prof. Wil son decided on Coytesville, Wednesday. * * * Among the young ladies and gentle men from the High School who will at tend college in the fall are:—Misses Bertha Lauer, Matilda Serge. Kathryn Meyer. Sarah Burdett, Elizabeth K. Albers, Julia Wells Preston, Messrs. E. Davis aud Clarence Birdsall. a a Miss Florence M. Carrick's pupils will hold their closing exercises in Hasbrouok Institute on Monday, June 30, at half past two. • * • Mr. and Sirs. George Young, of Seventy-second street, New York, have sent out cards announcing the marriage of their sister, Miss Mary Bray, to Mr. Steven McKenna, in London, on Wed nesday, June 11. Miss Bray, formerly of this city, left five years ago to study music in Europe. During the lntter part of her course she met Mr. McKenna, and when she returned to New York last spring publicly announced her engage ment. The wedding was to take place from the home of Mrs. Young in New York in June, but Miss Bray suddenly changed her plans and decided to be mar ried abroad. When she sailed for Europe last May her cabin was fairly stacked with wedding gifts. Among them was an exquisite Irish harp of rare emeralds with diamond strings, the gift of her brother-in-law, Mr. George Young. • * • Mr. and Mrs. Maxwell Grierson, of Fairview avenue, will sail July 14 for Europe, where they expect to remain until October. • * • Mr. and Mrs. Frank Stevens and Miss Mabel Stevens, of No. 23 Gifford ave Easy to Take Easy to Operate Dr. Lyon’s, PERFECT Tooth Powder Used by people of refinement for over a quarter of a century. nne, are now in Paris.
