THIS P 4 PER IS BEWOCRITIC IX PRINCIPLE* AND IS 1XBEPEX BE XT IX ITS VIEWS OX ALL LOCAL QVES1IOXS. the Budget monstrosity. Criticising a budget before the figures are published is as futile a job ns shooting at crows in the dark. But the methods of the Financiers who are fabricating Jersey City's budget this year are an open book, even in the absence of the figures, and they certainly afford f lir matter for comment. If any injustice is done in what follows, it is the fault of the "Evening Journal, for onr remarks are based entirely upon its article last Saturday revealing tlie process by which next year's tnx levy and tnx rate were to be reached. W e assume the Jour nal'’ would not libel its own party, and as nothing could be much worse than the statement which it makes, we are forced to take them for true. The process of constructing a budget and of evolving from it a tax levy and a tax rate is supposed to be carried on by two boards simultaneously, with col lateral and complimentary powers. The Board of Finance is supposed to ascer tain the needs of all brandies of the city government, to estimate ail sources of revenue available to meet these, and by deducting the latter from the former to fix the nmount of the tnx levy. Tiie Board of Tax Commissioners is supposed to assess the property, real and personal, in the city not exempted by law. on an equal and just senle with fair consideration for its taxable value. It is not supposed to assess property at a theoretical market value, nor can it assess good will, nor the special value that specially designed plants have in respect to the industry in which they are used. Perhaps about as good a way as any to put it would be to say that they can tax tangible property or its legal representation np to the price it would bring at a forced sale. In Jersey City real estate is pretty uniformly rated at seventy-five per cent, of its theoretical market value, and this is regarded as fair. When the Finance Board has fired the amount of the levy and the lax Board that of the assessment, the tax rate is found by the ordinary percentage rnle. The levy is divided by the assessment. This year the Board of Finance has pursued the extraordinary course of determining the rate and the assessment arbitrarily and without any color of legal authority, as well as the levy. Its organ, the “Evening Jonrftal,” an nounced on Saturday that the total assessment was to be $99,000,000. and the rate would be $28 on the thousand, the same as this year. This was the decree of Mayor Fagan and the Board of Finance. From this we figure by the usual and infallible operations that the tax levy is to reach the enormous, the unheard of total of $2,772,000 or thereabouts. Anybody who chooses can do the sum for himself. Allowing for the great sums to be received from the State from the railway tax fund, from the State school fund, from the special school appro priation of this year, and from various local sources, we gather that the total' budget of the year must be in the neighborhood of $3,500,000, a sum which, we fairly confess, staggers our belief in the truth of figures, Just what Mr. Fagan and his associates propose to do witli this colossal amount we cannot even guess. The “Evening Journal” says that every improve ment asked by the Street and Water Board lias been cut onf. The “Journal” may be wrong, but it ought to know. Where then is the money to be used? Perhaps it is to go on some of Mayor Fagan’s pet sell ernes of personal aggrandizement. If it is. it is a cruel outrage on the taxpayers. We do not believe that any $99,000,000 assessment will stand the test of the reviewing boards and of the courts. We believe a tax levy based upon it will never be paid, but will heap up a load of debt upon the city. Tlie increase of three and a half million dollars, which such an assessment involves, is not to be found in the city. But if it is all right, why did not Mayor Fagan and his Commissioners us^ the increase to reduce the tax rate instead of piling up a new load of expenditure? We repeat, take it how you will, his programme, as the “Journal” describes it is a cruel outrage on the taxpayers. X® doubt we ^ri!l hear much crowing tomorrow about the rate of $28 on the thousand not being increased. Small credit, we say, to Mayor Fagan and his crew for that fact, when we consider the way it has been worked. When 3 the Board of Finance nsttrps the functions of the Tax Board and sets the total of the assessment to suit itself, where was the difficulty in keeping tlie rate down? The Tax Board, through the death of Mr. Dayton, is unfortunately packed witli puppets* of the Mayor, who, it is fair to expect, Will submit to the Insult and the usurpation aud do as they are bid. We fear there are troublous times ahead of Jersey City in the financial vifay. This budget is truly alarming. We look forward with dread to tlie further revelations which the figures themselves will convey on their publication tomor row. / j •• . j THE STATE OF IRELAND. Only a few days ago John D. Criromins returned to New Tork from a trip to Ireland. He said he had found the country unusually tranquil and prosper ous. There was plenty of work aWd a fair flow of money, and an era of pros-1 parity had plainly set in to stay. | On top of this, it is perhaps rather puzzling to hear that Irish’ politics arc in 4 ? 1 most excited state, that the Government has proclaimed the “Crimes Act,” a coercive measure of great atrocity, throughout more than half of the Island,'t that the Nationalist leaders were inciting the people to resist paying rent,»and that they, in turn, were being prosecuted civilly and criminally by the Govern ment and by associations representing the land-owning class. , Inconsiderate persons might be apt to think that this was a result of mere Irish turbulence and the people were ungrateful for the good times that had come to them. This, however, is not the case. The people are truly grateful ■ to those who secured their improved condition, and the present Struggle is merely the effort of those who have won about one-fonrtli of their rights by a century of bitter contest to gain something more of theta and to resist reaction. If there are good times, to any degree, in Ireland today, they are the product of the agitation which, has been unceasingly carried on since the Fenian movement In the early Sixties. That formidable conspiracy first really touched the timid side of John Boll, and it showed the Irish people the true way to go about seeking what th^y wanted. Behind all the parliamentary parties which have succeeded, from George Henry Moore’s Amnesty party and Isaac Butt’s Home Rulers, through-Pftrnell’s Land League down to the Redmond and Healey movements today, there is always the menace of armed insurrection, and that at the time when the British Empire could least Stand it. Irish rebel spirit no doubt cost England at least six months, with all that thnt means, in the settle meat of the Boer war, and doubtless in the event of a European war, the opposition of Irish discontent would be an enormous discount to England’s chaaces af victory. In a word, Ireland owes no gratitndc to England for any con cessions she has won; they have been wrung from the fears and not the good will of the dominant race; The details Of the present situation are beyond the compass of sneh an article as this; but they are tolerably familiar to the American pabljc. One atrik ing fact is that the Government, having a land hill to pass—Itself a clear recog nition of the evils. of the present system—is begging for Irish votes In the Hough of Commons to pass it, and yet is prosecuting or threatening to prosecute the Irish Members of Parliament under the Coercion Act, because they agitate against the evils of the laud system. It would he hard to match this as an ingenious perversion of all ideas of morals and polities outside of England; but the condition exists today beyond all Question. The Irish may be trusted to take care of their own interests. They are not likely to agitate without reason, any more than ourselves. \\ b have no right to expect peace among them until they get justice, and the faqt that, as Mr. Crimmius points out, they have gained prosperity through fighting for it, is the very best reason for keeping up the fight. * • THAT WATER BOND ISSUE. The "Joumiil" is worried over the moral effect of that issue of $400,000 for the benefit of the East Jersey Water Company. It is argued elaborately that Hie new supply was absolutely necessary to Jersey City and that it had done enormous Vood. Nobody disputes this. But it was unnecessary for the city to grant East Jersey the outrageous terms that it did. Mayor Wauser considered the contract so outrageous in this respect that he would not sign the resolution awarding it, though he let it become operative without his signature on account ^f the city’s urgent need. Anyway, there would be less attack on the contract now. if the “Journal” were half way decent about the expenses of the Water Department. If it * recognized that this contract consumes over one-half of all the water revenue, and interest apd sinking funds on Republican bond issues consume four-fifths of the balance So that there is really $75,000 at the disposal of the Commissioners, there would, be loss occasion for constantly drawing attention to the shameful pliability to corporate influence of the old Hooker-McArthur Board. The “Journal” really harms its party by its truculent methods. When it lies about Democrats, they have to retaliate by tailing the truth about Republi cans. MUSICAL MATTERS. Seventh Regiment to Hear the Kaltenhorns. At the Circle Auditorium. Kaltenborn’s orchestra devote Monday evening to “Seventh Regiment Night,” with Marie de la Pnz. soprano, as soloist, and tlpj programme is tilled with popular marches, military airs and soul stirring melodies. Tuesday evening. ,the beau tiful mezzo soprano. Miss Florence Ste vens, is the soloist in the symphony programme, which excels anything in that line which Mr. Ivaltenbom has yet arranged, as Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 is the stellar number. Victor Herbert, the celebrated operatic composer, will have an evening devoted to bis operas on Wednesday, and Mr. Samuel Cowan, the eminent' basso cnntato, is to be the soloist. Wagner night is to be cele brated by the fact that Mtes Dora Phillips, the popular favorite in Wag nerian music, is to sing with Mr. Carl Schlegel. baritone, when the famous duet from "The Flying Dutchman” will be sung by special request. Mr. Frank Satte, the tenor who cre ated such a favorable impression in the Prize Song from “Die Mei-stersinger,” will sing the Liebeslied from "Die Wal kure” in the special Strauss programme Friday evening. Saturday, Popular Night, presents a list of music which will appeal to all classes, and in response to hundreds of requests, Victor Herbert’s 1 wouderful "American Fantasie” will be played. This is the most popular and soul-stirring selection of modern days. Sunday evening, Kitty Rampone, the celebrated little lady, who has won the hearts of all New York by her ingenuous manner and beautiful voice, will slug “The Holy City,” “Beyond the Gates of Paradise” and other equally beautiful selections, and the demand for seats that night is tremendous. A septette by Bee thoven. in three movements, will be played by a string and reed orchestra, and the balance of the programme is ex cellent. Special attention is called to the fact that in response to hundreds of requests from people who attended last Monday evening, and from many more who were unable to do so. on account of the storm, the “Stromberg Night” will be repeated, when Miss Zelma Rawlston, the famous vaudeville artiste, who has just com pleted an engagement of three years in London, will sing the songs, “My Blush in’ Rose” nnd “Dinah.” This occasion will be made especially attractive by the fact that a number of the celebrated members of Weber and Field’s Company have notified the management that they will lend their presence to the event. MARTIN-PIERSON. How a Well Known Yonng News paper Man Enjoyed His Vacation. Mr. Herbert L. Martin, a well-known newspaper man of Jersey City, and Miss Grace B. Pierson, of Plainfield, X. J., were marriedon July 21 by the Rev. H. \V. Bnrras, pastor of the North Baptist Church. Millville, X. J. The ceremony was performed at the home of the paster. The news of the marriage will dtflibt less be a surprise to the friends of the bridegroom in Jersey City. It was known that the wedding was contemplated, but the suddenness of the event was unex pected. Mr. Martin left two weeks ago on his vaedtiou. He doubtless appreciated the fact that he could make the vacation an unusually happy one, and so the wedding took place. Thus his vacation was turned into a honeymoon trip. The bride is a prominent member of Plainfield society. Mr. and Mrs. Martin are living in Clifton place. LADIES’ NIGHT. Handball Player* Enjoy Themselves With Dance and Song. The New 'Jersey Handball Club held n» liieetW on Saturday night at the clubhouse, Seventeenth and Grove streets.

He also danced some Irish steps. .William Nolan and Thomas Byrnes tried conclusions in the Irish reel and jig, the\ music for which was furnished by the ^celebrated piper, The*. Doherty. / , PASTOR RUTH’S SAD LOSS His Father Dies at the Age of Ninety-nine—Fine Old Stock. George S. Ruth, the venerable father of Rev. William H. Ruth, pastor of St. Paul's M. E. Church, died at 5 o’clock Saturday morning at his son’s home, No. 211» Third street, adjoining the church. He was prostrtaed by the heat two months ago, and never recovered from the attack.

He be longed to good old German stock, liis grandfather arriving in this country' on a Pennsylvania merchantman. Sept. 18, 1713. Mr. Ruth, like his ancestors, lived nearly all his life on a Pennsylvania farm. He retired from farming eight years ago, when his wife died and he then went to live at the home of his son. Mr. Ruth was a man of exemplary habits. He never used tobacco nor strong drink, and made a practice of retiring every night between 8 and 0 o’clock. He always got up early in the morning. To these habits he attributed his having reached the rare old age. He possessed a most amiable disposi tion and was dearly loved by everybody in St. Paul's Church who knew him. He was a member of the Reformed Church for many years, and for a long time was elder in the chuycli at his Penn sylvania home. He is survived by two sons. Franklin Ruth, of Easton, Pa., and Rev. William H. Ruth. No services took place in old St. Paul’s M. E. fclipreh yesterday on account of Mr. Ruth’s death.

Si SOCIETY TOPICS Miss Eatin, of New York, Appointed Superintend ent of Christ Hos pital, . WILL TAKE CHARGE FRIDAY Mias Johnson’s Place Filled After a Vacancy of Seven Months—Mary Fisher Home Musicals. Aliss Eaton, of New York, a graduate of St. Luke's Hospital, that city, and a woman of experience and capability, has been appointed to till the position of Su perintendent of Christ Hospital, which has practically been vacant since the fii st of the year. In December last Aliss Johnson, who has been Superintendent for the past eight or ten years, resigned on account of ill-health. Her resigna tion was to take effect on January' 1, and on that date she left the hos pital in charge of Aliss Uoriek, as acting Superintendent, until such time as the vacancy could be permanently filled. Aliss Korick remained in charge until June, when she left to take another po sition, and Aliss Blair, who is now act ing Superintendent, was advanced from the nurse’s ranks to take charge. She will be relieved on Friday next, however, when the new Superintendent, Aliss Eat on, will be sworn in. * * * Aliss Johnson’s place has not been an easy one to fill, as it not only requires a woman of experience, but a woman of tact and great discretion. This is why it has remained vacant so long, but now the hospital managers are convinced they have the light woman in the right place in Aliss Eaton. . * . Alias Johnson has had considerable trouble with her eyes, which trouble was primarily the cause of her resignation, though it was rumored at the time that she resigned to take another position. She has recently gone under an opera tion. and is now convalescing in the coun try. • * * Whether at home or abroad the club woman is always busying herself with something for .the benefit of something. The latest development in this line, of interest to Jersey City, will have <ts re sults this evening at the Portland, Sec ond avenue and Kingley street, Asbury Park. It is to be a high glass musicale for the benefit of the Alary Fisher Home, at Tenafiy, which was organized by Airs. A. J. Newbury, Airs. P. J. Koonz and a number of Jersey City women two years ago. The programme will include the fol lowing artists:—Aliss Cecelia Bradford, the famous violinist: Aliss Charlotte Bradford, mezzo contralto; Airs. Grace Russell Smith, contralto; Airs. Charles F. Rich, elocutionis't; Air. James Brad ford. accompanist, besides others of, like prominence. During the past week, Airs. Newbury lias been at Asbury Park as sisting Aliss Fisher, president of the Home, and Aliss Durkoe, secretary in the arrangements for the musicale. There is an unusually large number of Jersey City Club women, and members of the Alary Fisher Home Association, in As bury Park and vicinity, this year, all of whom have consented to act as patron esses. Among the number are:—Mrs. E. F. C. Young, Airs. Joseph A. Dear, Mrs. James Erwin. All's. Mahlstat, Airs. Mul ler, Mrs. A. Creveling. Airs. Hudspeth Benson, Airs. Samuel Negus. Airs. -O. C. Si :mets and Airs. A. J.

The terms are five and six dol lars per week, though the aged who have earned their living in literature, art, education or any of the various profes sions and are incapable for self support are received free of charge, so far as the funds will permit. Such persons, how ever, must be of good standing in their profession, and without relatives able to provide for them. Younger persons in need of a rest and change are also re ceived free of charge for a week or two, as vacancies occur. Ail beneficiaries are supported by the subscriptions and dona tions of the Alary Fisher Home Associa tion. Applications should be made to tlie President, Aliss Alary A. Fisher.
