JERSEY CITY. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1902. ROOSEVELT AND THE DEMOCRACY. According to some writers on enrrent politics, President Roosevelt's utter ances on the Trust question are equally embarrassing to lioth parties. The Republicans are put in a hole because they have no intention of really fighting monopoly. They might, indeed, put some high sounding generalities in their plat form about curbing these combinations, but they have no use for anything which seems really aggressive and which might offend the masters who have paid the shot in so many recent campaigns. The Democrats, we are told, are much dis comfited by Mr. Roosevelt stealing their thunder. They hud hoped to make an issue of the trusts with the Republican party, aud how can they do so when the Republican party is orating against the trusts as vociferously as they couid themselves? Now we have no reason to doubt that Mr. Roosevelt's attitude is very em barrassing lo the Republican party. The attitude of Senators Platt aud Quay and other real Republican leader? is proof of this. But we fail to see any reason why the Democracy should feel any hindrance to its plans, at least this year. Mr. Roosevelt is not up for election in November. We are only to elect Con gressmen. and the typical Republican Congressmen were all against Mr. Roose velt, practically on this very issue, during the last session. Therefore, as the lines will be drawn in this year’s fight, we shall have the President—in so far as lie is sincere—and the Democracy against the Republican Congressional faction. Just how Mr. Roosevelt's expressed views will affect the campaign of 190L is quite another matter. It is pretty far off, and many things may change be tween now and then. For instance, we shall have time to learn whether Mr. Roosevelt means what lie says. We do not in the least think he does, and we cannot see how he can continue to impose on the public very long. Even to day, all the thinking people of the country are asking why he has nothing to say about the tariff if he is really hostile to monopoly, and it will only take a little while to get the unthinking people saying it too. We can see no difficulty in tiie way of this year’s Democratic campaign growing out of Mr. Roosevelt’s speeches. Indeed they ought to help us. IT LOOKS LIKE SHERIFF ZELLER. From the attitude of the members of the Democratic Committee toward him, at the meeting last Friday evening, it seems to be practically certain that John Zeller will be nominated for Sheriff. The members of the committee represent the leadership and reflect the opin ion of all the precincts in the county and the practically unanimous sentiment among them was that Zeller ought to be and would be the nominee. This unani mity backed by the existing harmony in the party organization makes the nomi nation of Mr. Zeller and of the Democratic ticket at large a foregone conclu sion. Messrs. McNally, Egbert L. Seymour, Heavey, Parslow and perhaps some others have strong friends and supporters, but there is plainly no desire to re member their claims once the primaries are over. The man who gets the higii est vote for the nomination will be the nominee for the entire party and he will get every vote that the party can muster. If anyone wishes to realize clearly what this will mean, he should have stood on Montgomery street this morning when the Samuel D. Dickinson Association marched out on its excursion, and then he should occupy a similar position ‘>n Wednesday when the Robert Davis Association will have the right of way. Af ter seeing these two parades he will fully realize what the political situation is in respect to the November election. PROTECTION AND EXPORTATION. There has just been published in London n book on “American Invaders,” t>y a gentleman of the name of McKenzie. In it occurs this remarkable pas sage:— Men have sometimes spoken as though the dramatic coup of a Mor gan. when he took our Atlantic supremacy from us; of a Schwab, who outbids our steel makers: of Philadelphia bridge builders, who capture the orders for our biggest viaducts, comprise this invasion. They form but a very small part of it. Such items are merely the sensational inci dents in a vast campaign. The real invasion goes on unceasingly, and with very little noise or fuss in live hundred industries at once. From shaving soap to electric motors, and from tools to telephones, the Amer ican is clearing the field. American papers print this boastfully, perhaps we should say proudly, for it is really something to be proud of that our industries are so effectually con quering those of tlie old world. But the queer part of it is that none are so boastful as the Republican organs, which in their adjoining columns are printing wild appeals for protection nnd bitterly attacking all who venture to hint that American industry has gone beyond the point where protection is of any value to its legitimate development. That a country that is able to thus invade Europe and outbid its manu facturers in their own markets is in need of protection to defend its own home markets against these very manufacturers whom it defeats abroad, is as gross an outrage on common sense as ever was perpetrated. It reminds us of the old story of (he two snakes catching each other by the tail and swallowing each other. We are expected to believe that our indus tries have caught the European manufacturers by the tail and are rapidly swal lowing them, yet there is danger of the European manufacturers catching our industries by the tail and simultaneously swallowing us. It is easy to see where the pampered beneficiaries of the Dingley tariff stand; but how any large body of the American people can swallow such non sense, it is hard to imagine. SNUB FOR VOORHEES. It will be rather a sail slap to the late Foster II. Voorhees if Governor Murphy acts up to his alleged intention of reinstating Dr. McGill as Surgeon General of the State National Guard. Mr. Yoorhees's course in turning down the Doctor was the product of vanity and pique. It was not for the good of the service, but in total disregard thereof. RUEMPLER’S LAST GRAND JURY. The personnel of the Grand Jury for the September term does Sheriff Ruempler honor. No higher class panel was ever drawn in this county. It is a fitting climax to an honorable term of faithful public service. Mr. Ruempler will go out of office having enhanced the high reputation with which he entered upon the duties to which the people elected him. CRIMINAL AUTOMOBILING. The automobile killing is now as regular a daily item in the newspaper* as the didn’t-know-it-was-loaded “accident.” Hardly twenty-four hours pass that some desperate fool does not put an end to his own or somebody else s life by running amuck on the public thoroughfares. This thing will assuredly keep on until some of the fools are sent to prison for manslaughter, regardless of their wealth or social status. There is no sort of excuse for them. Then- conduct is a violation of all the promptings of common sense, and a defiance of oft-repeated warning of the most terrible kind. How can any sane man expect to run along the highway at the rate of thiity miles nn hour and escape mishap? THE HOSPITAL SUBSCRIPTIONS. It is quite remarkable that Dr. McGill should find it so hard in this coin k munity to find five gentlemen willing to contribute 925,000 each to the City tlospi tal Fund. We should hare thought that there would have been a rush of mill ionaires to the doctor’s office first thing Saturday morning after the announce ment was made iu the local papers of Friday, that the Doctor was looking for cash. Perhaps it was his making his announcement on Friday that hoodooed the enterprise. We can think of nothing else that would have restrained the over flowing liberality of our citizens. SCUDDER AND THE EXCISE BOARD. We read with some entertainment iu the columns of the “Evening Journal” an interview with the Rev. John L. Seudder, in which he handles Mayor Fagan’s alleged Excise Board without gloves. Of course we sympathize with .Mr. Seudder in his woe. It must be very painful for him to think how largely instrumental lie was in electing Mayor Fagan and bringing about the reign of the Honorable John .1. O'Brien. * The Excise Board is plainly determined not to lose any votes to the G. O. j P. by withholding the license of any dive-keeper. The members probably think they have already got all the advertisement there is in a reform movement and thus made sure of that section of the truly good who do not read the new. papers. They will now try to win the votes of the tough element by turning the town over to them. The story of this Board should alone be sufficient to secure the defeat of the Republican party this fall and for years to come. THE BOARD OF TRADE BOOM. The effort to boom the Board of Trade, which was outlined in “The News” of Saturday, will meet with general approval and corresponding success if the members take it into their heads to adopt a progressive spirit in dealing with public questions. Heretofore, the Board of Trade has been absolutely ineffec tive except as an obstructive force. The proudest feather in its cap is its achievement in killing the Wanser water contract, which was, on the whole, the most favorable ever offered to the city. If this policy is renewed or continued, the Board of Trade will continue to be a useless humbug. There is no use in attempting to prophesy regarding its future. It all depends on the members themselves, and all the general public can do is wait and see how they behave. There should be room in this city for a body which would see a little fur ther than the end of its.nose, and which would favor projects likely to lead to development in the future, even though they involved present expenditure on a large scale. AMUSEMENTS. Academy of Music. Maurice J. Fielding's pastoral melo drama, “A Ragged Hero,” will be at the Academy of Music all this week. It tells a pretty story of life and love among the hills of New England. Its scenic em bellishment is beautiful and appropriate, and its mechanical effects are master pieces of stage realism. The story tells of the love of Bob For rest, an honest young farmer, for Lettie Saunders, a village belle. Their dream of happiness, however, is destined to be shattered. Bob is a somnambulist His dissolute half brother, Floyd Preston, murders his father and accuses Bob, who is, however, vindicated, after he has endured many hardships. Miss Julia West, a pretty and viva cious soubrette, plays the heroic country maiden, and her clever, spirited work in variably gains for her a high place in the affections of her audience. The title role is capitally taken by Hal Brown, while Miss Gertrude Swiggett presents a most amusing portraiture of a gawky country girl. The numerous remaining characters of the play are irf capable hands. > Bijou Theatre. A massive scenic melodrama, “The Search Lights of a Great City,” differs from file average, inasmuch as it is a beautiful story of intense interest pre sented by a powerful cast,'while bubbling forth like pure waters from the spring is a constant vein of refreshing comedy, will be the Bijou attraction this week. The plot is laid in New York and pic tures in a striking way high and low life in that great city. The adventures of Arthur Burton, a young Westerner, who squanders his fortune and narrowly escapes from the snares and pitfalls placed in his path, together with the trials and tribulations of Mary Jasper, a blind girl, who has been kidnapped from her father and held for ransom, awaken the sympathy of ail, while the doings of Martin O’Rourke, a follower of Tam many. who’s right if lie's wrong, draws forth the laughs at every appearance. The entire play abounds in thrilling sit uations and startling climaxes, while during its action a number of ‘high class specialties are introduced, including the famous New York Quartette. Fourteenth Street Theatre* The popularity of “Robert Emmet” at the Fourteenth Street Theatre, New York, seems to be almost unbounded. Even the hottest night of last week did not deter the crowds from making a pil grimage to this mecca of the Irish drama and t^e warm wave apparently had no effect on the enthusiasm of those who attended. Mr. Tynan, the author of “Robert Emmet,” is making a splendid reputation for himself as an actor, as well as a playwright. His impersona tion of the young patriot is an ideal one and shows not only a finished art born of good experience on the stage, but also a deep analytical study of the char acter lie portrays. It is not exaggerat ing in the slightest to say, he is the best acting Irish star we have had be fore the public in many years. His youth and enthusiasm lend much to the chdrm of his work, for there is a sin cerity in his manner that is magnetic and carries his audience with him in the dramatic scenes. His supporting cast is an appropriate setting for a clever young actor. All the company are play ers of ripe experience and established reputation; all are well cast and the result is an evenness and roundness of performance that is seldom equalled, even in an “all star” production on Broadway. Judging from the demand for seats, “Robert Emmet” seems to be destined to remain at the Fourteenth Street .Theatre Until October, when the contract of the house with Cliauncey Olcott will compel Mr. Tynan and his beautiful play to go on tour for the balance of the season. Several large Irish organizations are ar ranging for theatre parties this coming week, when they will attend us clubs Or societies on their respective evenings. Herald Squar* Theatre. , Now that the player* have recovered from first night neryou*ness, “The Emer aid Isle” has won its place as one of the substantial successes of Broadway. Jefferson De Angelis has succeeded in greatly building up the comedy in the role of Professor Bunn, and the story of the opera lias been very materially improved. There' lias never been any question that this last opera by Sir Arthur Sullivan is musieally the prettiest and best creation of many, many years. The Casino. ‘‘Shows may come and shows may ! go,” hut “A Chinese Honeymoon” goes right along, merrily and tunefully, pack ing the pretty Casino every performance. When the delightful musical comedy had the Broadway theatrical field practically to itself the playhouse was filled every time the curtain rose for a performance. Now, with other theatres all around it j open and fighting for a share of the husi 1 ness, the play continues to please larger i audiences than ever. This is partly ex j plained by the fact that New Yorkers j who have been away for the summer ore ! returning. And they are the best and ' most discriminating theatre-goers in the j world. Then, too, the longer “A Cliin | ese Honeymoon” plays at ’lie Casino the greater grows its fame and prestige. The ten or twelve big song hits are re ceived with as much applause as ever, and at their first entrances Mr. Tlios. Q. Seabrooke, Miss Katie Barry, Miss Amelia Stone, Mr. William Burress, Mr. Van Rensselaer Wheeler, Mr. William i Pruette, Mr. II. W. Tredeniek, Miss | Nella Webb, Miss Edith .Barr and the i other favorites of the east are always | greeted with great enthusiasm. -♦ ST. MICHAELS PARTY ENDS Father Sheppard’s Picture Leads in Number of Chances Sold—-Fair a Success. St. Michael’s lawn party closed Satur day night after a successful run of two weeks. The attendance numbered about 1,800. Traphagen Park on Ninth street, where the party was held, is not large and the attendance filled it to overflow ing. It was so crowded that it was un comfortable. The parishioners and vis itors, however, forgot this when it came time to decide contests. Much interest was centered in the raf fling of pictures of the four parish priests. William Kennelley won Father Sheppard’s picture. His was one of 900 chances. The ticket for Father Kelly’s ; picture was held by Frank Spillane. The curate's picture had 750 chances taken on it. Miss Ella Cooney won Father Mc Dermott’s picture out of 800 chances. Clerk M. F. Kalaher, of the Board of Fi | nance, won leather Duffy's picture. | Father Duffy’s picture, so far as I chances went, came next to Father ‘ Sheppard. There were 855 chances re corded for the young assistant curate. The handsome dressed French doll was won by Father John Murphy of St. Bridget’s parish. Rev. Father Maher of St. Mary’s won the Chinese table cloth. St. Michael’s team won the tug of war. The different amusements coined more money than on any evening during the party. The dancing platform was so crowd ed that little enjoyment was had. _A,__ I. D. K. CLUB PICNIC. Pom the Evening in the Grand View Park. The J. I}. K. Social Club bald n suc cessful picnic at Grand View Park Sat urday night. The affair was arranged by i a committee consisting of John Rente, | Frederick W'endelken, John J.

CLUB WOMEN TO BE BUSY Federation Will Give thS Sea son a Brilliant Start—Clubs to Open Next Month. With next month all the clubs in city will throw open tiieir doors and the club woman will again be too busy to see straight, with the Woman’s Club filling up four afternoons per week, the ICera mic Art Club and the Open Hand Club, one afternoon each per month, aud eueres sandwiched in between, both af ternoon and evening. The outlook for the opening of the social season is cer tainly very encouraging, if devoting one’s entire time is any sign. The State Federation will bring a brilliant and busy opening for the women’s clubs. The fact that the Golf Club is practically dead ufter December 1, when its lease expires, is sure to excite the younger set to a more active fall tournament than ever before, with perhaps a few dances thrown in. Then there are the baseball games, in which the women have be come so interested that they will not miss a day, and which will of course extend into November, not to speak of the ten or twelve afternoon card clubs. So tak ing all in all, with the new fads and the old customs, the social opening should be one to satisfy the ambitions of the most ambitious. » * • While the first department of the Woman’s Club to open will be that of Literature on October, the club, gen eral. will open on Thursday, October with a “social day” in Husbrouck Hall, under direction of Mrs. Hudspeth Ben son and the Town Improvement Depart ment.

It meets every two weeks during the winter season, from house to house, studies literary subjects and regales itself with refreshments. It is the establisher of the “breakfasting” custom in Jersey City, having up to the past two years always ended its season with a violet breakfast in May. Its color is violet and the flower to match is its modest emblem. It has never known but the one president, Mrs. Cecelia Gaines Holland. . * * The Keramie Art Club which opens on Monday, October 0, at the home of Miss Kich, No. 120 Fairview avenue, is entering upon its eighth year, and is just one year younger than the Womans Club.

Darling, Correspon ding Secretary; Mrs. L. T. Dougherty, Treasurer, and Mrs. E. S. Baker, Librarian. « * • The Ramblers, a society of young la dies to which only the alumnae of Has brouck Institute are eligible, will open its season in Iiasbrouck Institute probably oil the first of October, though the date has not ytet been definitely set. • * * The College Women’s Club, an organi zation of more recent date than the others, will open its season also next month, at the convenience of its mem bers. It was organized three years ago, with Miss Grace Louise Farrnnt, its or ganizer, as president, that the college women of Jersey City might have a so ciety of their own on the plun of the University Club. Miss Marie Liotard is now president. * • * Mary MacLane at Coney Island is the latest.
