•li letters for publication to the Managing Editor.
The Freeholders themselves, at the conference Friday last, developed the
strongest reason yet given why no present action should be taken upon the Coun
ty park question. There is undeniably serious doubt as to the validity of the
present Board, and, in a matter of this kind, where a large issue of bonds is to
be made, it is doubtful whether financiers could be induced to take the securities
with the shadow resting upon them caused by the doubtful power of the present
County government.
It may be quite true that bonds would not be issued by the present Board,
but it is obvious that the act of issuing them would be simply one stage 01 de
tail of the proceedings authorized by the present Board. The operation of
bringing the parks into existence must be legally considered as a whole and not
as a sequence of disjointed or disconnected acts.
If the present Board has no legal existence, its act in ordering a vote of the
people would be equally illegal, so, naturally, all subsequent proceedings growing
out of it would be invalid and the County would have been at all the trouble and
expense without advancing the issue one iota.
Assuming that there is any virtue in the argument advanced by some of the
gentlemen who visited the Freeholders on Friday, that speedy* action is necessaiy
in order to procure unoccupied sites, it surely cannot have much force foi a
year or two. ‘If there are twenty eligible sites in the County this year, the
chances are easily ten thousand to one that nineteen of them will be available
next year, and eighteen in 1004. and seventeen in 1905, and sixteen in 1900, and
fifteen in 1907, and if there are only three or four parks to be laid out it is hard
to see how any serious limitations of choice could arise within any period of time
worth considering.
We cannot help remarking, before leaving the subject, that the remarks of
Mr. Joseph A. Dear, urging the Freeholders to totally disregard the County s
financial condition and go ahead regardless of results was quite worthy of the
assiuine spirit of his paper. We have not heretofore suspected Mr. Dear of
writing the “Evening Journal” editorials, but we think he must be the guilty
How utterly unworthy Mr. George L. Record is to be Corporation Counsel
for a city like Jersey City is proven by his action in refusing to consent to a speedy
argument of the certiorari suit respecting the one-headed Street and Water Com
mission Act. No other Corporation Counsel has ever refused to expedite a de
cision upon a public Question of this character, no matter how great the inconven
ience to himself might be.
Mr. Record's course proves that he has no true conception of legal ethics;
that he has no true conception of his duty as a public official, as the paid ser
vant of all the people of this municipality. He is a rank partisan; a peanut poli
tician; a pettifogging schemer; a servile tool of a vicious ring.
The people have one thing to be thankful to Mayor Fagan for in putting
Mr. Record into a conspicuous public office; he has shown the people what the
man really is.
It is so well known that we have no sympathy with amateur detective work
that it would be superfluous for us to repeat our confession of faith on that sub
ject; but the capers of Mr. Julius C. Frank and Mr. Robert McCrum certainly
afford us lots of amusement.
The revelation of the fact, that, with a Republican Board in undisputed
sway, Sunday liquor selling still goes on, is one to make any Democrat laugh,
even if he has the toothache.
How nice it is for the coterie of extremists who got together and fixed things
so nicely in bluenose circles for the election of Mayor Fagan last November.
Evidently the police ring lias heard something drop. The word has been
passed around to restore discipline until after election day.
Chief Murphy has been given a free rein and shake-up will take the place
of shake-down until the votes are counted on November 4.
ilhe whispers which are circulating among policemen and firemen at the
present time, regarding the indications of financial activity on the part of the
Republican County Committee, remind us of the time when that ancient expon
ent of Republican virtues, Mr. Humphrey W. Carr, used to sit in his office, up
in the Weldon Building, and make the letter carriers sweat dollars for the
G. O. P. campaign fund.
Mr. Carr is no longer active in Republican politics. A new generation of
lieutenants to Colonel Sam has grown up; but the bad traditions of the Party
of Moral Ideas are not forgotten and the man who wants to hold an office must
come up with the cash when the bell rings.
Whether Chief Murphy will stand for an assessment of his subordinates we
do not know, but we will be very much surprised if Dr. McGill does not make
music in the air if the present plans for looting the bluecoats are carried
In a recent article iri the “Evening Journal,” we find the announcement that
the Heist and Young oil tank in Lafayette is completed. The “Journal” goes on
to say that “The oil, which the tank is t o contain, is of an extra high grade qual
ity and will be used by Messrs. Heist & Young in making experiments with a
burner to keep up a five pound pressure of steam in fire engines. This burner
its makers claim, will consume but one gill of oil an hour, arid will keep up the
pressure of steam in all fire engines in the city for less than what it now costs
for one.”
Just clip this paragraph out and paste it in your hat and see Part Two of
this disgraceful job develop at some meeting of the Fire Board in the near future,
and watch how the coal strike will be worked for all it is worth as an excuse for
oiling np. . ......_

The Trenton “Times” falls foul of “The Jersey City News” for exhibiting
what it calls “virtuous indignation” over the misconduct of the Plainfield Com
pany at General Oliphant’a funeral.' Using the tu quoque argument, it reminds
us that charges of disorderly conduct were made against “a Jersey City Iiegi
tUMit” at the time of the inaugural parade last January.
We beg to inform the Trenton “Times” that when the stories of miseouduct
on the part of a few members of the Fourth llegiment were exploited, we gave
them full space in our columns, and exhibited precisely the same “virtuous indig
nation” that we have recently with respect to the Plainfield company. W e
urged that an official investigation be held, and if the story were proved true,
that the guilty persons be punished.
Ws beg further to remind the Trenton "Times” that an investigation was
made both by the regimental and State officers and the offenses charged against
the Jersey. City mm were found to be ab eolutely trivial. The acts complained of
proved to bo nothing more than boyish skylarking. The whole matter was there
fore dropped by the military authorities and the newspapers.
It has never been the fault of “The News” to bo blind to the beam in its
own eye.
The Evening “Journal” announced on Saturday that the Supreme Court s
denial of the stay in the Street and Water Bourd fight assures the holding of
the election in November, as provided for in the unconstitutional act. Ihe Jour
nal” had better not be too sure of this. There are ways in which a test of the act
may still be forced.
Never since the politicnl revolution of 1895 has the Republican party of New
Jersey been in such bud shape as it is today. Intoxicated by its long lease of
power and its uninterrupted possession of the State treasury, its leaders in almost
every county are quarreling and striving fot a monopoly of the spoils of office in
a manner which seriously threatens their success at the polls in November. The
fact that a United States Senntor, a Congressman of National reputation and an
ex-Govornor of the State are the chief actors in one of these squabbles has at
tracted the public attention to the brawl in Union to such an extent that the
serious defection in some of the other counties has escaped general notice.
The public would as soon expect to see the dome of the State House skip
over to the new Court House as to hear of Ocean giving a plurality for tko
Democratic ticket. Yet a campaign of revenge, inaugurated in that county by
Congressman John J. Gardner and Senator Charles Reed of Somerset, has
stirred up such a bitter internecine war there that, miraculous as it seems, there
is good reason to look for a Democratic victory at the next election. In last
winter’s fights at Trenton, Assemblyman Holman of Ocean voted for Frank O.
Briggs for State Treasurer and John F. Dryden for United States Senator.
Reed says he was pledged to him for Treasurer and Gardner evidently thinks
Holman ought to have voted for him for Senator. Holman denies that he was
pledged to Reed, and the version which he gives of the conversation on which
the Senator bases his claim, clearly bears him out. None the less, Reed and
Gardner are doing all they can to defeat his renominatiou, and in order to ac
complish this they are resorting to methods which one would hardly look for in
such eminently respectable and all-around upright gentlemen as Republicans
claim them to be. Gardner has sent letters to all the postmasters and other
Federal appointees in the county asking them to do all iu their power to defeat
Holman’s renomination and containing veiled hints of what will happen to them
if they don’t. Benjamin F. Howell, who is running for Congress in the new dis
trict in which Ocean is situated, has let it be understood that these threats
have his endorsement. Not content with this, these eminently conscientious Re
publicans have attacked Holman’s private and official life and are saying some
hard things against mm.
All this has aroused the fighting blood of the State leaders whom Holman
supported in last winter's fights and they are determined that he shall not be
made suffer for standing by them. The result is a conflict, not inferior in viru
lence or importance even to the celebrated row in Union, which bids fair to wipe
out the Republican plurality in Ocean. The situation is causing serious worry
to Governor Murphy and the other State leaders. They reelise that, now that
the gambling house element in Long Branch will no longer contribute to their
campaign fund, Monmouth is lost to them; Middlesex will give an increased
Democratic plurality, and with Ocean lost too, Jacob Geissenhaiuer will be elected
to Congress in the Third district.
This is but another of the encouraging signs of the times which should urge
the Democrats to get ready to stand together and wage an aggressive and ener
getic campaign from now to election day. If this is done, it will be found on
November 5 next that New Jersey has advanced a long distance on her way to
emancipation from the thraldom of Republican misrule.
Academy o f Music.
Local theatregoers “will be interested
in the appearance in this city of “The
Climbers’’ at the Academy of Music this
week. This brilliant play of social life
is considered to be Mr. Clyde Fitch s
greatest contribution to present day
stage literature, and so successful was
its presentation that it ran at the Bijou
Theatre. New York, for 200 nights.
The right idea as to the players best
fitted to portray the characters in Mr.
Fitch’s remarkable play has certainly
been carried out. Barely has a greater
collection of celebrities appeared in on?
organization. The roles in “The Clim
bers have been assigned as fololws:—
Richard Sterling, John E. Kellerd;
Edward Warden, Charles Bertram;
Frederick Mason, D. J. Fingleton;
Johnny Trotter, Fred W. Peters; Dr.
Steinart, George W. Stevens; Godesby.

Miss Hunter, Maud Ream Stover; M ss
Godesby, Lilia Vane; Miss Sillerton,
Charlotte N. Weston; Thompson, Lillian
Wright. There is to be no advance in
Bijou Theatre.
“Busy Izzy” will be the title of the
new attraction and it will be on the same
lines as the Ward & Yokes productions.
George Sidney, the funny little Jew who
is to star the coming season, will be Izzy.
A big company of forty people will be
employed to air Mr. Sidney, and the fol
lowing principals show the kind of ma
terial to be used:—La Petite Adelaide,
Sam Marion. Reta Curtis, Lyons and
Crowley. Maud Campbell, Edward
Clark, Grace Dare, Fred Wyckoff, Dan
iel Sullivan and Thompson and Andrews.
There will be a chorus of pretty girls
and good voiced young follows and the
staging will be very elaborate. “Busy
Izzy” comes to the Bijou Theatre to
night and all this week, with matinees
Wednesday and Saturday.
Boa Ton Thtitrj.
Hyde's Comedians, under the direction
of Mr. Japes Hyde, one of the leading
vaudeville companies on the road, will
be the attraction at the Ban-Ton The
atre, week beginning Monday, the 2!>th.
The entire bill contains so many feature
acts that it would be unfair to “star”
any single number. First oil the bill
will be the Picollo Midgets, composed of
four Liliputians, who are clever acrobats,
wrestler's, comedians and singers. The
other features of the programme will be
Trovollo, in “The Artist’s Model;” Tom
Hearn; the Nico! Sisters, in the “Color
ed Belles;” the Four Mortans; Ozav and
Dclmo; the Four Colbys, and Boyce and
Wilson, in “The Twentieth Century
“Cat 1* King” and “Bandit King”
Coming to <ho Academy.
Mr. James H. Wallick, at the instance
of a great many of the best known man
agers of this country, will retire his two
great successes, “The Cattle King’ and
“The Bandit King,” this season. Both
plays will be elaborately staged with
new and appropriate scenery from the
studios of the best artists in this country.
Many novel and startling effects will be
introduced, notably the great trotting
horse scene, which is undoubtedly one
of the greatest bits of stage mechanism
ever introduced in any play in this
country. Many new electrical and other
effects will be seen that will add much
interest to both productions.
The Company presenting those plays
will be headed by Mr. John J. Farrell,
a young actor wH^m Mr. Wallick has se
cured to impersonate the title roles of
both plays. These parts wert formerly
in the hands of Mr. Wallick hitnsolf, but
that manager finds that, owing to the
enormous amount of business in connec
tion with his several organizations he will
have on the road this season, it will
be impossible for him to again appear
in these characters. Mr. Wallick feels
as though he has found in Mr. Farrell
an actor who will do justice to the roles
in every sense of the word. Mr. Farrell
has all the accomplishments necessary
to make a success of each part. He is a
romantic, looking gentleman, has a fine
chiseled face, a manly bearing and n good
These two plays will undoubtedly re
peat the great success of former years.
“The Pilgrim” for Oc!oher.
“The Pilgriih” for October comes in
a cover that is unique among the autumn
magazines. It is the work of Otto J.
Schneider. Willis J. Abbot’s “Men and
Matters of Moment” is especially timely.
One of the most charming articles that
“The Pilgrim” has published is Eleanor
Root’s account of a visit to Longfellow’s
"Wayside Inn.” A dainty bit of prose
in the pastel form leads off the fiction,
which includes five stories of more than
ordinary interest, by Juliet Wilbur Tomp
kins, Karl Edwin Harriman, Sara Hop
kins, Emery Pottle and Franc Reming
ton. In the department devoted to the
theatre the work of E. M. Holland is
discussed by Kenneth Herford. An arti
cle by Byron W. Holt is entitled “Wages
and the Cost of Living.” Haryot Holt
Cahoon has an illustrated paper on “Ye
Lantkorne of Ye Olden Time.” Mrs. Van
Rensselaer Dey writes intimately of
Helen Gould. An article that will be
read with interest is Elizabeth Cooke’s
“Of Such Is the Kingdom.” In a spright
ly article Samuel Moffett tells of the
Smith who have risen to fame. Charles
l II. Johnson tells of Kier Hardie. In
“A Bit of Old Egypt” Bertha Damnris
Knobe describes and pictures the uniuqe
i Egyptian after dinuer den of Mrs. Sam
} uel Eberly Gross of Chicago. Mrs. Sieg
‘ fried’s valuable lace lessons are con
“The Pico* of Lory.”
J. A. Mitchell's interesting story “The
! Pines of Lory” bids fair to more than
equal the success of his earlier works,
! “The Last American” uud “Amos Judd.”
I Mr. MitclieU is not us prolific a writer as
1 some other's before the public, and hil
works show the careful literary finish of
the skilled and conscientious author. The
' book is from the presses of the Life Pub
lishing Company.

Woman’s Club Issues the
Fiist Edition of the
“Outlook” Under
New Editor
Chairman of Education Wants
Women on the School
Board—Mrs. Benson to
Open the Club
The first fall number of the Woman's
Club “Outlook” has been issued, under
its u«w editor, Mrs. Frederick A. Hoar,
and is a remarkably bright, practical and
newsy issue. It is called the Town Im
provement number. In it the editor calls
attention to Mary Benson Park. “If,”
says she, “the men who have the handling
of affairs in tills city could be made to
understand that the women of this club
are not trying to work against them, but
with them for the public good, we
should find that strength in unity that
is desirable. If the women of our club
who have influence with influential men
will but use that woman’s weapon (her
tongue) enough during the next few
months to convince the city officials that
a few dollars spent upon this park will
be a good investment for the city, and
that by withholding these few dollars
they are a penny wise and pound foolish
then we may see better results and a
far reaching influence from a well kept
‘Mary Benson Park’ next summer. But
‘what’s in a name’? If they won’t give
the money unless we say Mount Pleas
ant’, then let us say ‘Mount Pleasant’ by
all means.

The Federation will be held on Thurs
day and Friday, October 30 and 31, in
the Bergen Reformed Church. Lectures
will be delivered on “Economic or Social
Conditions of the Present’’ and “Child
Labor in New Jersey.” There will also
be talks on minor subjects, besides an
exceptionally fino musical programme.
“On leaving the peaceful fields and
woods, where life is so simple, and there
are so few problems to be solved, and
on returning to the city, with its crowd
ed streets and dense population,” says
Dr. M. F. De Hart, in her greeting to
the Woman’s Club, “we are met by a
host of evils that seem, by contrast wilfc
those pleasant places, to be unendurable,
and we wonder how we have lived
among them so long, with such indiffer
ence. It is well to begin work at once,
while the vividness of our first impress
ions is still with us, while we realize the
need of eternal vigilance and active work
by the members of the community, if we
would change these conditions which
seem to our awakened sensibilities un
sanitary and undesirable. Our club book
suggest some of these, and no doubt
many others have occurred to us all du
ring our first days in town.”
« * *
The club will open its season on
Thursday next in Hasbrouck Hall with
a town improvement programme, under
Mrs. I-Iudspeth-Benson, whose very name
is a guarantee for an exceptionally in
teresting and practical programme.
When Mrs. Benson gets on the platform
it is for something else than mere enjoy
ment, mere passive instruction, and us
ually bears fruit a little later in a “clean
sweep,” a new park, a trolleymen’s
reading room, or something of that kind.
The speaker for the occasion will be
Dr. Josiali Strong, of New York, who
will speak qu the tenement question.
Miss A. I>. Myers, chairman of the Ed
ucation Department, is another club offi
cer who works along practical lines,
though as yet she is too young in her
chairmanship for it to be productive of
as much fruit as Mrs. Benson's work.
Miss Myers was elected only last March.
This year Miss My<ers is going to make
i an effort to get the club women to take
a greater interest in school matters, and
if possible get them on the Board of Ed
ucation. At the very first meeting of
the Department, to be held October 10,
at the home of Mrs. J. Herbert Pratt,
No. 22. Virginia avenue, a practical les
son in voting will be given. Miss Myers
hopes to secure Mrs. Carrie Chapman
Cntt, of the National Woman’s Suffrage
Association, for this occasion. Mrs.
Susan C. Marvin, former ehairmau of the
department, will state the law of New
Jersey in regard to women voting.
"If,” says Miss Myers, “our four hun
dred will only use their privileges, we.
shall soon hold the balance of power and
become a groat help to the city.”
