FOR SMOKERS Carrie Nation Uses Her Voice Freely in Bayonne But Does No Cigar Snatching. OLD TIME GOLD WATER TALK Remarkable Audience at Washington Park Casino —Trolley Car Epi sodes. Mrs. Carrie Amelia Nation, the widely famed Knnsas total abstinence advocate and lecturer against using tobacco in any form, appeared for the first time in New Jersey at the Washington Park Amphitheatre, Bergen Point, last even ing. Mrs. Nation's fame as a saloon smash er has created a desire to see her, and the theatre was packed to overflowing. When Mrs. Nation, who was about the sixth to appear on the bilk walked on the stage the atmosphere was redol ent with tobacco smoke. Up to the time of her appearance all kinds of spirituous liquors were sold through the audien; e. but during Mrs. Nation’s talk the waiters were compelled to keep off the floor. Mrs. Nation spoke to an audience which is seldom seen sitting side by side. Some of Bayonne’s society belles could be seen sitting next to workmen with pipes in their mouths, or drinking beer. All through the auditorium were scat tered men and women of wealth and men who worked for their living by the sweat of their brow. TEMPERANCE TALK. Mrs. Nation is of medium height, has piercing black eyes, hair tinged with gray, is quite stout and her face is deep ly lined under a high forehead. She came to the front of the stage when in troduced, and, prefacing her remarks with a little poem on the evils of drink ing, delivered a straight-from-the-slioul der, old-fftsliioned temperance lecture. The various causes aud results of intem perance were thoroughly thrashed out and many in the audience had a serious look. Mrs. Nation blamed man for every thing bad that has happened and gave as the reason that the men of today do not think enough about getting married, thus obeying the laws of the Bible. The Democratic and Republican par ties were torn to pieces by Mrs. Na tion, while the Prohibition party was highly extolled and a warm plea was made for all the men present to support the last named. “The Republican party in Kansas,” she said, “from Governor to constable, perjure themselves. My God spoke to me two years ago June 5 and told me what to do. The liquor curse is a hellish offspring. Saloons kill fifty to every one tile drug stores kill. The brewers own the -government." SV\ ITl'HISS TU SAlUlvl.Nti. Switching abruptly to tobacco smoking Mrs. Nation flayed the men in the audi ence thus: “You’re doping yourselves, you men who smoke. Please refr*;j lrom smoking now because your dirty breath gets into mine and chokes me so I can’t talk.” This sally made a hit. Every one seemed to expect tlint Mrs. Nation would descend from the platform and pull the cigars and cigarettes from men’s mouths. The lecturer contented herself with pointing out several young men who she said were on the road to the lower regions by smoking cigarettes. During her smoko talk, Mrs; Nation used the word “dope” frequently, which seemed to amuse the audience. RAPS REPUBLICANS. “It’s an outrage to strip women half ■caked and have them in saloons and on the backs of brands of every kind,” the speaker exclaimed. “Republicans are like anarchists. Yes, and the lawyers want the saloons so they can make crime; it makes business for lawyers.” VIEW OF JERSEY CITY. After the performance was over a reporter for “The News” interviewed Mrs. Nation. She suid she was always pleased to see a reporter, as much as sistance had been given her by the press in her smashing crnsadc. When asked what her impressions of Jersey City were in com pari ".in with other cities, Mrs. Nation replied:—“Jer sey City is burdened with a great many saloons, young man, and I notice they are the glittering kind, where a great deal is done to attract the young men. I cannot say that Jersey City appears to me to be any worse than other cities, but I notice a great many young boys smok ing cigarettes. Why, your fingers are yellow from nicotine now. Give it up, young man, give it up. “To go back to my subject, I think the State should make some provision for its young boys to prevent them from smoking before they have sense enough to see it is injurious, for after a boy be comes an inveterate cigarette smoker he has not enough sense to know he is in BUSINESS MEN’S LUNCH N 11 A.

Her manager disposed of several of the hatchet souvenirs. In selling them, he referred to them as of good plate, and suitable to be worn as breast pins. Mrs. Nation broke right in with “Now, ladies he is wrong, those things cannot be worn ns breast pins because they will tarnish very quickly.” One man on the boat requested Mrs. Nation to tell him when she first started her "tirade.” Mrs. Nation took no of fense at the word, but in answering him emphasized the word “crusade.” The proprietor of the park requested Mrs. Nation to stay ail night, as the performance was so late in finishing. This invitation was accepted. This morning Mrs. Nation went to Rockuway Beach. ON THE TROLLEY. At the West Eighth street station Mrs. Nation spurned a carriage and jour neyed to Manager Freeman Bernstein's theatre by trolley. She saw men smok ing upon tlie rear four seats of the car and denounced them vigorously. Tlie conductor failed to have the ear stopped at a corner for a passenger quickly enough and was abused by him. Mrs. Nation came to tlie conductor's res cue aud read the riot act to the “sassy” passeugerr. LIVES WES ABOUT TOWN Like “a stranger in a strange land,” President John J. A'oorliees, of the A oor hees Rubber Manufacturing Company, wanders about this city. Friends who used to grasp him warmly by the hand and express the greatest pleasure at meeting him now glance at him askance and regard him with doubt and suspicion. All this change in the status of a worthy citizen is due to the absence of a luxuri ous growth of beard and whiskers which have adorned the face of Mr. A'oorliees for the post thirty years. The removal of this beard has so changed Mr. A'our hees’ appearance that his most intimate friends have to look at him very closely before they recognize him. Francis J. Reilly, a former resident of Hoboken, has been elected president of “The Democrat” Publishing Company, of No. 14 Barclay street. New York. The company publishes “The Sunday Demo crat,” established in 1868, which is a leading Irish-American and Catholic pa per of New York City and vicinity, and “The American Herald,” established in 1890. Mr. Reilly was formerly connect ed with tlie “Evening Sun” and the "Evening Journel,” and possesses all the qualifications needed to make a suc cess in his new field. The papers have already appeared in a new form, with many new features. Clerk Charles Esterbrook. of the Fire Board, has returned with his family from the Delaware Water Gap, where they spent the summer. Assistant Clerk Forrest Heath, of the Board of Finance, will return tomorrow from a two weeks’ vacation at Saratoga. “Alamma,” asked a six-year-old daugh ter of a Woman’s Club member yester day, "will you take me with you to the club breakfast when it is held?” “I am afraid that they won’t allow lit tle girls there,” replied the mother. “AA'hen I grow up,” said the child, “I’m going to join a club and we’ll have a breakfast, and I’ll invite you to come, if—if— the other members will have old ladies at the table.” Joseph Coyle, son of Boulevard Super intendent M. J. Coyle, of Hoboken, has returned from Baltimore, Md., where he has been studying for the priesthood. He expects to go back to Baltimore in a few weeks to resume his studies. Pntriek N.

They bad attended the State convention of the liquor dealers in Passaic yester day. The North Jersey Street Railway Company hns greatly improved the con dition of Montgomery street, west of the Hudson Boulevard, by repaving in spots between the rails and within two feet outside the tracks. A former resident of Hoboken, who has been in the West for the past year returned to that city yesterday. Upon meeting an old friend he began to ex plain that he was obliged to come to New York on business and concluded to drop over to Hoboken and see his friends be fore returning to the West. “Don’t tell me any story like that,” promptly replied the Hobokenite. “Don’t you know that a person who once lives in Hoboken has got to come ba,ck. He can't help it.” Police Sergeant Gannon, with Mrs. Gannon, have returned from a two weeks’ Visit to Rockaway Beach. Fireman David Hadsall. of No. 12 Engine Company, is spending his vaca tion at Callicoon, Sullivan County, N. Y. He will return Saturday.

FORTY-SEVENTH YEAR Scores of Local Professional Men Are in the List of Graduates. Hasbrouck Institute will open the forty-seventh season Wednesday. Sep j teniber 17. On account of the large j number of applicants this year, the fac j ulty has been enlarged, so that now there are more than twenty instructors. The Institute maintains the following departments, each having its own Super intendent:—The academic, intermediate, primary, kindergarten, school of music and school of art. In the academic de partment are these well defined courses of study:—Classical, English, literary, elective, commercial, and fine art. INSTITUTE'S RECORD. Every effort is made to provide not only thorough, inspiring classroom work, but especially that individual and direct attention to pupils which is frequently supposed to be given only in the smaller schools. With the well ventilated, uncrowded, attractive classrooms, with the large number of thorough instructors, anil with the high moral tone which has al ways pervaded the Institute, this school may emphasize its excellence in these three matters, so important to young people—health, instruction and associa tion. Hasbrouck Institute is registered by the New York State Board of Regents, and thus secures for its graduates the “4S count certificate,” admitting them, without examination, to all the profes sional schools and many colleges. All colleges accepting certificates for entrance without examination include the Institute in their list of accredited schools. Hasbrouck has graduated six hundred students, and has fitted more than three hundred for college. It is better prepared now than ever before to do this Import ant work. Almost all the prominent lawyers and physicians as well as the business men of this city are graduates of this school. : Of the three hundred graduates who became students of the colleges, Prince ton may claim twenty-eight; Yule twen ty-three, Cornell twelve, Amherst Col lege one. Trinity one, Rochester one, Co lumbia twenty-eight, Harvard two, New York University fifty-six, Stevens five, Wesleyan two, Dartmouth College one, Rutgers twenty-five, Williams thirteen, Brown University one. West Point one, Lafayette two. Smith eleven, Wellesley one. Baruhard four, Baltimore one. Fifty-five well-known lawyers and twenty-nine physicians were also grad uates of Hasbrouck Institute. The list of three hundred names would be largely increased were it not confined to graduates of the Institute, as many Hasbrouck students have entered college and professional schools before gradua tion. THE ADVANTAGES. Other advantages which are offered to students are as follows:— ■The location of the Institute is easily accessible from all parts of Hudson County. The building is spacious, sani tary, well ventilated and well lighted, and has a large and fully equipped gym nasium for military drill and physical culture. The laboratories' are as ample and ns well supplied with apparatus as those of many of our colleges. It engages over twenty teachers, and only such as have had experience and success. In the modern languages native teach ers. who are also well versed in English, are employed. The classes are small— an instructor for about every fifteen pupils. -« HIS TARGET A DOG Young Ludwig Fined $50. by Rec order Lazarus Joseph Ludwig, living at No. 25 Eust Sixteenth street. Bayonae, was before Recorder Lazarus this morning, charged with making a target of a valuable dog, wounding it severely. The complaint was made by Miss Josephine Miller, whose father owns the dog. Young Ludwig told the court he had some blank cartridges, and fired at the dog in his own yard. One of the cart ridges contained a bullet, Ludwig ad mitted. Judge Lazarus reprimanded Ludwig, and fined him $5. The boy pretended he did not know the revolver was loaded. He had boasted before his arrest that nothing could be done to him. |M. J. CALLAHAN —THE— ■HATTER OUR FALL STYLES ARE NOW READY. | - 98 NEWM AVENUE. • . FOUL WATER _ FLOOD Lafayette Citizens’ Latest Grievance Against the Lehigh Valley Rail road. RUNNING STREAM CLOGGED Sewage Backed Up Over Streets and Lots—Health and Comfort Endan gered. The citizens of Lafayette are protest ing against the action of the Lehigh,] Valley Railroad in filling a running stream near Communipaw avenue, which stream carried off a large part of the sewage of the Heights into New York Bay. This running stream ran under the trestle of the railroad near the meadows at Claremont. Not until the trestle was made more substantial by the filling ini of dirt around the framework was the i stream interfered with. PIPE TOO SMALL. The railroad put a small pipe under the embankment, but this has proved in adequate. This small pipe has become stopped up, flooding the lands with stag nant water. President Mortimer Lampson of the Lafuj-ette Citizens’ Association, said this morning that the matter should be looked into by the Board of Health. “Our association has decided to hold a meeting in a few days,” said he, “to take action. We question the right of the railroad to obstruct a running stream, and it is not unlikely that the matter may be taken to the courts if the officials fail to remedy the evil. CITIZENS TO PROTEST. “That stream has carried off the sew age from certain parts of the Heights for many years. When the railroad built its trestle, the workmen deliberately filled in the stream and substituted a small pipe. This was unlawful.. Matters would not have been so bad had the offi cials put in a large pipe to carry off the water. Now the lands are constantly flooded. No end of disease come from this foul water. The health officials Mill also be asked to take up the matter.” President Lampson announced that he would probably issue a call for a meeting the first of next week. -« BOTH CLAIM THE BOAT. Randolph Refuses to Give it Up Till $50 Paid for It Is Returned. An eighteen foot oatboat in the pos session of Charles Randolph, of No. 210 River street. Hoboken, is the object of a controversy that will very likely have j to be settled by the courts. Randolph bought the boat from Robert Erdley, of this city, for $50. A man who said he came from New York claimed the boat yesterday and said it was stolen from him on June 23. He valued the craft at $300. Randolph refuses to give up the boat until the $50 he paid for it is returned to him. He called upon Recorder Stan ton this morning, but was informed that the case was one to be settled by the District Court. Randolph holds Erdley’s receipt for the $50. He says Erdley told him he bought the boat from a tugboat captain named Stillman. Erdley said Captain Stillman found the boat adrift on the Hudson River. There was no name on it. -4 COUNTY’S CHEAP COAL. The foresight of the Freeholders in making a contract with James W. Coyle j has resulted in the county having an j abundant supply of coal, at $5.40 a ton. The contract will expire on October 1, after which time, if the strike continues. ! it may be necessary to use soft coal at ! the county institutions. 1 saucuiy 01 me uuuui uu.\, wwc uunmou at the suggestion and protested. Storrs, however, would not be swerved from the path of duty, and very dramatically split open the box with a large hammer. The box revealed no more fraud than had the others, and the most remarkable phase of the occurrence was the wonder ful toughness of the box and the many hard blows from the hammer wielded by the athletic young chairman it took to demolish its cover. In the last year of his legislative career Mr. Storrs secured the passage of a bill creating a district court for the city of Orange, an office required nbout as much as a fifth wheel to a wagon, and for his services to his party Governor Griggs made him its Judge. Both Charles A. Smylie and his late partner, George M. Bauchle, were inter ested in the North River bridge project, both being stockholders and officers in the concern. -* WEISS UNDER ARREST. Chas. Weiss, the Union Hill saloon keeper. was arrested by Constable Mc Laughlin last night on a warrant issued by Justice of the Peace George C. L. Maes, of Jersey City Heights, charging him with assaulting an Italian named Di Clemente, as told in “The News” yester day. Ex-Freeholder Con Dietz qualified in $300 as surety for Weiss’s appearance at a hearing to be held on Friday next. UNDEB DIFFICULTIES. \} < n n» i —him<■■■■■■ —— i Uncle Sam: "HI. there!

Smylie Was Once in New Jersey’s Legislature WAS A GREAT REFORMER Remembered Chiefly for the Way in Which He Smash ed Ballot Boxes While Chasing Fraud. Judge Charles B. Storrs, who acci dentally shot Charles A. Smylie in the Adirondack^, will be remembered by those who recall the doings of the New Jersey legislators in the nineties. He was elected to the Assembly in 1893 from the Tenth District of Essex, which then included the city of Orange and the town ships of South Orange and West Orange. He is the son of the late Rev. Dr. Henry M. Storrs. a prominent clergyman of Orange. The Assemblyman is a gradu ate of Yale and in his undergraduate days was a famous athlete and football player. After graduation he went to Japan where for several years he was professor of Anglo-American luw in the Imperial University at Tokio. Storrs came to the Legislature firm in the faith of his call to reform everything in sight and undo all the wickedness of the wicked Democrats. He introduced many peculiar measures for which even the leaders of his own party could not stand and it came to be the regular order of things to kill a “Storrs bill.” Perhaps Mr. Storrs will best be re membered for his connection with the opera bouffe investigation of alleged election frauds in those precincts of Gloucester City which were popularly be lieved to be under the control of “Duke” Thompson. Storrs, after considerable labor of the sort which brought forth Horace’s mouse, succeeded in getting a committee appointed, of which he was made chairman. The ballot boxes of the suspected precincts were brought to the Assembly Chamber in the State House and their contents examined without any startling disclosures. j.here was one box which was supposed to contain such awfully rank fraud that the good Republicans shuddered as they contemplated what would be revealed as soon as it was opened. When the com mittee reached this box the keys could not be found and there was no way of opening it. This fact increased Stors’s faith in the awfulness of the crime it con tained nnd he declared that he would break it open. Some of the committee pretending n great reverence for the THE NATIONAL OUTFITTING CO.

FREE SOUVENIRS TO LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. POLITICIANS ROW Republican Candidate from Bayonne Held for the Grand Jury. Lawyer Alexander P. Maxwell, a young Bayonne lawyer® who also prac tices in Jersey City and Hoboken, prose cuted Joseph Kelly, of Bayonne, this morning before Recorder Hyman Laza rus, upon a charge of assault and bat tery. Kelly drives the Bayonne Police Van and made a counter complaint. Lawyer Robert Carey represented Max well, and James H. Dougherty defended Kelly. Maxwell, who was the local candidate for Assemblyman on the Republican ticket last fall, testifies that his nose was was broken and his face punched in a fracas with Kelly about seven o’clock last Tuesday evening. He sew Kelly but was unable to swear Kelly struck him. He was waiting for the trolly car on Avenue C and started into Edward Smith’s saloon for a glass of soda water. He was dealt several blows from behind, but he did not defend himself. Maxwell was sure he was frequently hit and quite badly hurt. . Dr. George H. Sexsmith testified that Maxwell came to his office and was treated for contusions of the head and the nose; one eye was closed and his clothes were spattered with blood. Kelly testified that Maxwell accosted him first and objected to Kelly looking at him, and said he was a better man than Kelly. Maxwell called him a bad name and struck the first blow, which he, Kelly, returned. Kelly insisted th^it Maxwell was looking for fight. Upon cross-examination Kelly admitted he and Maxwell were not on friendly terms, and said Maxwell had made threats against him. Mooney and James Smith testified in favor of Kelly. Their evidence showed that Maxwell was the aggressor. The Recorder held both men for the Grand Jury. JILTED BY BOLES. Sues Her Formbr Lover "Who Had Sold Ks- 3P-rnxtnrc. Mrs. Malioht Alexander, of No. G1 Merseles street, had James Boles, twen ty-seven years old, of No. 215 Newark avenue, arrested on a charge of selling her furniture valued at $200 while she was in the Hudson County Jail. Boles admitted selling the furniture, but said the sale was made at Mrs. Al exander’s request. This was denied by the complainant. Boles angrily turned to the Judge and said:—“Your Honor, this woman is jest spiting me, because I do not go to see her any more.” Further gnestioning brought out the fact that they had been lovers, but Bole’s affections had been transferred and Mrs. Alexander was very much put out ib consequence, besides losing her furniture. The judge laid the case over, to hear other witnesses. -* HUSBAND, HUSBAND’S HEIR Mr*.

The will was contested on the grounds of undue influence by a daughter of the testatrix by her fiist \ marriage. Mr. Burns had inherited the , bulk of her estate from her tirst hus band, Robert McGimpsey, a former well known resident of this city.
