I '!■ - ■ “JOURNAL” LIE NAILED. There was much curiosity in certain circles on Wednesday eTening to see the meeting between City Collector Robert Davis and ex-County Clerk Dennis McLaughlin. Those who had been reading the “Evening Journal's” articles were eager to see whether any trace of bad feeling or hostility would be discernible in the demeanor of the two prominent Democrats. Those who watched the greeting got the reward of their pains, but not in the way the “Journal” predicted. They saw the two old friends and allies grasp hands with the warmest heartiness, and the familiar words of good will which they exchanged showed that the “Journal's” rumors and hints weie mere fiction devised in the hope of stirring up bad blood, but a complete failure in that respect. Equally, it was plain that the yarns told about disaffection in the organiza tion of which Mr. McLaughlin is standard bearer were wholly devoid of found ation. The gathering of 2,500 persons w as as loyally Democratic as the County Committee itself, and the one or two men who may have some feelings of pique in their hearts and whom the “Journal” tried to exalt into leaders, were eti dently without countenance or sympathy among the members at large. The demonstration was a splendid one of Democratic unity and strength. NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS. Coroner O’Gorman of New York deserves general respect for the manner in which he upheld the majesty of the law on Wednesday evening when an attempt was made to prevent him from doing his duty at the residence of n wealthy so ciety woman at Throgg’s Neck. A young woman had been shot on the grounds of Mrs. Collis P. Huntington. The Coroner went to the scene to investigate, as law and common sense require, but an attempt was made, first to exclude him entirely from the premises and then to prevent him from taking the girl s ante mortem statement, apparently for no other reason than that it was not the will and pleasure of Mrs. Huntington. The Coroner dazed the lady by telling her he would put her under arrest In two minutes, just like any other woman, if she insisted on impeding him and helping to cover a crime. She could not believe anyone would dare take up such an attitude towards her. But when she found Dr. O’Gorman was in earnest, she at once gave way. She had learned a lesson which ought to be beneficial not only to her but to all of her class. The astonishing thing about the case is not that Mrs. Huntington took up the foolish position that she did. A woman’s ignornnee of everyday life might be plead in apology for her. But two men, one of them a doctor and a public official, aided and advised her. These two should certainly be disciplined by Dr. O’Gorman. They are both liable technically as accessories to homicide after the act. The notion which they seem to have entertained that a deliberate attempt at murder could be treated as a private affair was surely as strange a freak as ever entered the brain of a sane man. i Only a couple of weeks ago, it is said, a society man in Newport shot his wife, of whom he was jealous. He tried to kill her but failed. The newspapers printed the case suppressing the names, but these were fully mentioned on the streets of Newport. The police of that city, however, politely eondu.cted their in vestigations so that they could ascertain none of the facts which everybody knew. Truly the exclusive privileges of some members of the community ore reach ing a formidable scope. THE P. R. R. HOLD-UP. The present attitude of the New York Aldermen in respect to the Pennsyl vania Railroad tunnel concession is unique in its way. Surely never before was there seen a mnnicipal body deliberately strangling itself for the sake of a distinctly illegal exaction. The disagreement touching the franchise resolves itself into a dispute over the so-called labor clauses of the contract between the city and the company. All the other issues are satisfactorily settled. The city officials insist on incorpora ting an eight-hour clause and a rate of wages stipulation. The company re fuses to accept either. Of course, we are in favor of the eight-hour day and good pay as general propositions, but we can readily understand the company s refusal to have itself legally bound for all time by conditions which future events may make impossible of fulfillment. Besides, the company points out that the courts of New York State have expressly thrown out similar covenants in other contracts. They have gone so far as to rule that even in controlling its own rapid transit subways, the city cannot make such an agreement. Any contract in which it appears is invalid. These propositions are unanswerable, and the conclusion cannot be avoided that the “statesmen” who are standing for the il legal conditions are playing a bunco game upon the working men whose votes they want this fall. As for the relations between the company and the city in general, it would seem that the one needs the tunnel about as badly as the other. No doubt the company sees both economy and development of its traffic in the completion of the great work; but the city’s need for it is even greater. As President Cassatt has pointed out, it will bring the Northwest, the West, the Southwest and the South into such direct relations with New York as can be effected in no other way. The only way in which New York can hold its primacy in trade is by the construction of the tunnel, and every year that it is delayed increases the dan ger of other ports from Boston to Newport News and other centres such as Chi cago and St. Louis getting away from it the control of the business of the coun try. Looking at the matter purely from the standpoint of the workingmen, it is worth while remembering that the construction of the tunnel means the division of many million* of dollars among them, and in standing out for a purely vision ary proposition tho Aldermanie element are keeping them from the enjoyment of these vast gums. INFLATED SENSE OF DUTY. The despairing cry of many a poor man who has served a term in prison that all the world is against him when he tries to obtain employment so that he can lead an honest life, was particularly emphasized by a case in Brooklyn which is reported in the morning newspapers. About two years ago a young man was sent to prison for eighteen months hy Judge Hurd of the Brooklyn City Court for forgery. A few days ago Judge Hurd recognized in the conductor who collected his fare in a Brooklyn street car the young man whom he had sent to prison. The judge “deemed it his duty” to notify the company of that fact and lost no time in getting the young man into trouble. It seems that all applicants for conductors’ positions on that road are obliged to answer under oath a set of questions, one of which is:—“Were you ever convicted of a crime?” Not only did Judge Hurd’s deep sense of duty cause this poor wretch, who was trying to make a fresh start in the world, to lose his position, but it also lead to his arrest upon a charge of perjury. Very much of the trouble and misery in this world is caused by those per sons who too much “deem it their duty” to follow up the sins of others. ENCOURAGEMENT IN MONMOUTH. Every day brings more cheering news to Democrats from Monmouth county. The latest is that the Republicans propose to renominate the entire Assembly ticket, including the urbane Judge William T. Hoffman, some time of Hudson county. If they do, all will be dragged down into the dust of defeat. The Repub lican leaders themselves are not over sanguine and it require# all the nerve they \ possess to keep their courage up to the sticking point. No one knows better than they do how much they owe their so-called victories in the county in recent years to gamblers’ boodle, and the absence of that element in their coming campaign is apt to bo fatul. Confidence is more than half the battle in polities as in war, and this the Democrats possess in a marked degree this year. They confidently expect to see return to those days when under the leadership of Joel Parker, Charles Haight and William H. Hendrickson, old Monmouth was a Democratic stronghold in deed. CAMDEN VIRTUE. It is somewhat edifying to read in one column of one of the Camden Republican ring’s most blatant organs:— “For Congress, First District, Henry.G. Loudenslager,” And in the next a pathetic appeal for a primary reform law. As one contemplates this queer mixture of sin and sanctity he is reminded of these ancient verses:— ' , When the devil was sick The devil a saint would be; When the devil was well The devil a saint was he. HUNGRY EYES ON IT. There is some prospect of the State’s receiving about $3,000,000 from the National Government as interest on old war bonds. True that prospect is rather slim, but, slim as it is, it is not slim enough to prevent the hungry Repub licans of the State from casting longing eyes upon the amount and devising various schemes for getting at it as soon as it gets into the State Treasury. The great present danger is that they will first spend it and then fail to get it. WHAT HE MAY SAFELY DO. In yesterday’s New York “Press." this unfounded complaint appeared:— If there is anvthiug besides breathing that Mayor Fagan of Jer sey City bus done that has not inspired Democratic criticism the local records are incomplete. Why Mayor Fagan may sleep unmolested. Like the little boys, he is very good when he is asleep. All his dangerous dreams come to him in his waking moments. A G. W. FROM ABROAD. It seems more than passing strange that one who bears the great name of George Washington and who can prove that he is a great grand-nephew of the Father of His Country should have to apply for naturalization papers in order to become an American citizen. Yet such is the fact and this phenomenon re sides at Brighton Heights, Staten Island. He says that his great grandfather, William Washington, was a brother of the “Father of His Country and a Tory, who went to Belgium at the outbreak of the Revolution and settled there. The present George was born in the kingdom of the festive Leopold and came to this country five years ago. He is a man of means engaged in a manu facturing business which employs a large number of men in New York and to all appearances he will make a desirable citizen. Let the modern George W. come in as speedily as possible. EUCHRE FOR CHARITY. German Hospital Association Has Sold Soores of Tickets.

All Sort, of Millinery Creations in Every Known Color* There has been a great craze this sea son for big, pretty, breezy, floppy paper hats. This fad has been extremely popu lar and as the hats are very becoming to a certain style of beauty, they have been extensively patronized. The girls who have dark fluffy hair may wear the red hats with white or black pon-pons. Or the girls with light hair may wear the dark hats all one shade. The hats are very easily made and one may be built, trimmed and ready to wear in a very short time. The crowns are taken from old straw hats and they may be high or low as the wearer chooses. Then large or small brims are cut but of stiff paper and pasted or sew ed around the crown. Fancy crepe paper is the favorite ma terial. This is cut into strips about five inches wide and braided. This makes a ; thick rope which is then sewed on the hat. The braid is usually started at the top of the crown and coiled- around and around and tacked here and there with : strong thread. The paper is sewed on both sides of the brim making a strong : hat which is not easily destroyed. I The hats are trimmed in various ways. ; Sometimes large pon-pons of the same or different colored paper, as the wearer’s taste dictates. Some hats are trimmed I with birds or veils, but the all paper idea is the most popular. A very pretty girl was seen wearing one on the Heights last week. She had very light golden hair and this immense black paper hat perched jauntily on her head gave quite an air to her whole ap I pearanee. -A FARRELL-MAHAN. The marriage of Mr. James Farrell, a prominent member of the Catholic Club of this city and Miss Grace Mahan, of No. 105 Clerk street, took place yester day at noon in St. Patrick’s R. C.

SOCIETY TOPICS Woman’s Club Home De partment to Start Cook ing Class Under Di rection of Mrs. Hough. FIFTY TO EIGHTY MEMBERS WASTED Any Woman, Whether a Club Member or Not, Is Eligible—The Study Programme. When the Woman’s Club Home De partment opens on October 20, Mrs. George R. Hough, chairman, hopes to make a cooking school an established part of it. She wishes to start in with the school at once, because unless it is established before Christmas, the chances are it will not be established at all. Last year efforf was made to start the school on the same lines us that run uuder direction of Miss Edge in 1000, when Miss Frilitz, of New York, was teacher, but, through postponing its com mencement from fall to January enthu siasm died out and there was no cooking school. Some of the women were greatly disappointed, as Miss Edge’s cooking school has become famous as one of the most pleasant reminiscences of the Wo men’s Club. Now they are contagiously enthusiastic for the forming of another class, and if the Home Department only strikes while the iron is hot it is not likely there will be any trouble in getting together as large a class as it can handle. If, however, it waits until all the euchre clubs get going and the women become so interested in the shuffle they have time for nothing else, the cooking class will not have the ghost of a show. . * . The plan for the cooking class is not a selfish one. It is Miss Edge’s plan, which she wns unable to carry out be cause neither the elass nor the fee was large enough. It is to charge enough for the cooking lessons to have a sur plus with which to start another cooking class in the tenement districts for the poor. Any woman, whether a club mem ber or not, will be eligible to member ship, and from fifty to eighty members are wanted. As the Department has now ninety-five members of its own. there should be no trouble in getting the re quired number to join the cooking class, though, on the other hand, it would never do to limit it to anything less than a hundred and shut out some of the De partment members. * * • The programme for the Home Depart ment study during the winter will again be along the lines studied during the past two years, save that while here tofore the homes of foreign lands have been included, this year it will be limited to “Homes of America and Her Foreign Possessions.” Miss Edge, former chair man, will open the study on October 20, with a talk on "Under California’s Sun ny Skies,” which will be a review of the National Federation of Women’s Clubs in California last June. “How they live in Porto Rico” will be the subject of a paper to be given by Miss Jane Whin yates on November 17, with a special discussion on the food value of fruits. December 4 will be social day, when the Department will have charge of the general club meeting. On December 15 Miss S. Evelyn Foster will give a pa per on “Historic Mexico,” which will in clude a review of her trip there Inst winter, and Miss Helen M. Rae, who wns also in Mexico last year, will give a paper entitled “A Glimpse of Mexican Life.” On January 19, Mrs. A. J. New bury will give a paper on “Our Canadian Cousins,” and Mrs. John L. Hilton will give a peper on “Winter Sports in Can ada.” February 18 will be “Guest Day,” when the Department will meet at the residence of one of its members and lis ten to a lecture by some out-of-town dig nitary. “Native Life in the Philip pines” will be the subject of a paper by Mrs. L. H. Broome, and “Translated Americans,” the subject of a paper by Miss Ada D. Fuller, on March 16. Mrs. John A. Walker will conclude the pro gramme with a talk on “Hawaiian Homes” on April 20. “The Home Beau tiful,” consisting of suggestions for mak ing home the dearest spot on earth, will be taken up as current events and dis cussed at each meeting. The programme committee consists of Mrs. Frances J. Rae, Mrs. Daniel Van Winkle, Miss A. D. Fuller and Mrs. George R. Hough. • * • In Philadelphia, and, in fact, through out Pennsylvania, they still judge the fruits by the family tree. In New York that sort of thing has been handed down to horses and dogs, and it is the almighty million that counts. « • • Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Negus, who have 'been visiting the Rev. and Mrs. John L.
