JERSEY CITY, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1902. ANOTHER SURRENDER. According to the “Evening Journal,” the local Republican machine is think ing seriously of nominating Mr. Robert Carey for Congress in the Niutli Con gressional district, to run against Mr. Allan Benny of Bayonne. Presumably the | ^Journal” is in the confidence of the leaders of its party, and knows what it is jikiug about. We may therefore assume that all hope has been given up of | carrying the district. IMr. Carey is not the man the Republicans would nominate if tiiey expected to elect him- There are many old dyed-in-the-wool members of the party, who would have the preference, if the honor were not an empty one. Mr. Carey has no claim on the Republican party which its leaders feel bound to acknowledge. He is in the unhappy position of all political converts who do not bring great strength and large backing with them. His new party lias not much more use k f for him than his old one had. We understand Mr. Andrews is to be the nominee in the Tenth district ' against Mr. Allan L. McDermott. Of course, this nomination is in the same | class with Mr. Carey’s. It is purely perfunctory. Probably not even Mr. An drews himself expects his election—though lie will make a rattling campaign— and the whole situation shows that the party has totally given up Hudson as a & : bad job this year. In an estimate made by Mr. Joe Manley and published in the Republican 8 newspapers yesterday morning New Jersey is credited with three Democratic f Congressmen. We do not know which district he had in mind for the third, but as well shall probably carry the First. Third, Fourth and Fifth, with a fair chance <j>f the Sixth, lie is sure to be right so far as he goes—only lie does not go far enough. GENERAL BOOTH BARN'JMIZED. We are more amused than edified at the manner in which “General Booth s advance agent is “working” the press of the country for free advertising for the “General’s” approaching lecture tour. The gentleman, who styles himself 1 Liter ary Secretary,” can give “Toady” Hamilton points ns a grafter. Columns upon columns of advance notices, illustrated, are sent out in every mail from Salvation Army Headquarters in New York, aud immediately upon his arrival the “General” is to hold a special reception for Newspapermen at the Headquarters, at which he will submit to interviewing to any extent. In short, the boom is being organized on the old familiar lines of Irving, Bernhardt and Patty “farewell visits.” There are no doubt those who find it all very right and proper, and calculat ed to advance the interests of religion and morals. We confess, it makes -us feel creepy. The methods of Barnum were excellent when applied to the circus; but they appear to us strangely out of place in a quasi religious movement. THE TARIFF COMMISSION SCHEME. We agree with the “Evening Journal” in doubting the feasibility of a stand ing commission to revise the tariff from time to time. We especially fail to see how it would keep the subject out of politics. There is nothing in the Constitu tion to warrant the transfer of any power to such a, commission. All it could do would be report to Congress, and as Congress would debate the report aud net upon it or not as it thought best, the ultimate situation would be precisely what it is today. The Tariff is fairly enough a political question. Public policy and national finance are involved in it, an-J if these do not constitute any subject political, what ip the world would do so? But, white*we agree with the “Journal” thus far, we do not know whether to laugh or be angry over one of its minor propositions. It says:— Demagogues utilize the tariff as an election issue mainly because ~ the great majority of the people do not come in direct Contact with its ’ operations, and are not familiar enough with them to detect errors aud falsehoods at sight. If the people do not come in contact with the operation of the tariff, all the world is under a strange misapprehension. The general notion among both Be, publicans and Democrats is that in this country you cannot eat, sleep, wear clothes, travel, furnish your house, take medicine, rend, write or play without Ip being in direct contact with the tariff. It determines the price of ninety-five per cent, of all the articles we buy: it controls the expenditure of seventy-five per cent. Jf our incomes. If this is not direct contact, what is? | for the demagogues who utilize the issue by lying about it, they irffcthe llopuhiicau editors aud speakers. i NO. 28 SCHOOL ROCK EXCAVATION. The award of a large sum of money by the Board of Finance on Tuesday, to pay for rock excavation in connection witli the new School No. 2S building, gives new life and color to some very sensational rumors which have been cur rent for weeks, if uot months, past. It has been stated that one of the most villainous jobs ou record has been engineered in connection with this school under the direct approval of Republican members of tire Board and with the tacit consent and connivance of Mayor Fagan, who is said to have boon fully conversant with the facts. If these be anything like the stories in circulation, there is only one course open to Mayor Fagan. He must veto the appropriation and scotcli the steal. If signs tho resolution, the Grand Jury should take up the case aud .thoroughly (investigate it- If this money should be paid, the Indictment of at least one f member of the Board of Education aud sundry other persons should be the result. This is a very serious matter. It needs thorough ventilatiou before a dollar of this money is paid. THE FREEHOLDER BILL REFERENDUM. According to an item in a local newspaper, yesterday, a movement is on foot to re-submit to tbe people tbe question of reducing the number of Freeholders for this county from thirty-four to nine. Tbe movement is prompted by the fear that the courts will abolish the present Board on the ground that the act under which it was created was unconstitutional. This would, of course, necessitate an immediate return to the old system, Involving the election in November of a Board by wards and towns to the number mentioned above. The new movement is based on an act of the present year often spoken of as the Middlesex Act, which is believed to be valid because it covers the eases of all counties and has no time limit If the question were put to vote under it and the small board plan were readopted this year—as it assuredly would be—the nine member plan would be unassailably established. It is to bs hoped this step will be taken. It would be disastrous to go back to the jumbo board system. We would have another carnival of extravagance and mismanagement with no countervailing benefit whatever. The expense of submitting the question to a vote is absolutely trivial. A couple of hundred dollars would cover it. _ _ THE NAVAL ESTIMATES. The request of Secretary Moody, of the Navy Department, for $82,420,030 for the naval establishment in the next fiscal year will excite no partisan op position whatever. The ambition of all good Americans is to see the country become a first-rate maritime power. Not only our safety, but our honor demand it. The greater, the wealthier -we become, the more we are in danger from jeal oitsy and greed. The more powerful v can only repel danger and assert our r way* available. With a good skeleton army, of say we have today, we may be able at any meet any probable emergency. Sea pi vised. War ships take years to build; ; pare, and officers and men take lifetimi carrying on this great work of Nationi allowed to retard it. THE PARK We generally approve so heartily t Freeholders, that it is with some hesiti do. We always feel that they have gi motives are honorable. This said, we may add that we ai action in the County Park matter. Tl: unwise to proceed in it today, and in tl have concluded to submit the question l This, we believe; should ultimately be c pointed out, we are confident this is no HAPPY JPYTHiANS Grant Lodge Has a Feast and Its Members Tell Funny Stories. Grant Lodge No. 89, Knights of Pythias, celebrated its seventeenth anni versary last night in Beckers Hall, Jack son avenue, with au informal banquet. The celebration was confined to lodge members and was greatly enjoyed. Dictrict Deputy Emory O. Pratt acted as toastmaster. On his left was Brother Jacob Haunsman and on his light was a huge coffee pot steaming with the delicious beverage. The committee had made ample pro vision for the “blow out.” There seemed to be enough on the board to feed a Ger man regiment; when the feast was over there was scarcely enough left to break fast a kitten. Among the good stories that added to the merriment of the occasion was one told by Brother George Smith. It was al labout a loaf of bread. Brother Smith said that when he arrived home the other night he noticed that the baker had left two loaves of bread at his door. When he awoke the next morning one loaf was missing. Where it went is a profound mystery. The baker is willing to make affidavit that lie, left only one loaf, but Mr. Smith insists that there were two. He says he ought to know because he counted them before he went to bed. Stories were related by Brothers A. E. Tuck, E. C. Dallenine, E. C. Pratt, William Forshriy, Frantz Hertrick, Will iam Reed. George Maylor, George La Forge, Joseph Roberts, John New comb, James McCoy, Joseph Merritt, Wallace King, William Anstett, Ber tram P. Farraut and James Campbell. Grant Lodge is today one of the most prosperous lodges of Knights of Pythias in this county. Seventeen of its charter members are living. During its seven teen years existence it has initiated four hundred and fifty members and lias paid $17,000 in sick and death benefits. Thirty nine members have died. The rank of page was conferred upon Bertram P. Parrant last night, bringing the total membership in good standing up to one hundred. __M. . KINDLYJNDtED. City Hospital Furnished With Coal by Mr, Crandall of the Erie R. R. Thanks to the thoughtful kindness of Mr. H. B. Crandall, coal freight agent of the Erie Railroad Company, the City Hospital is well supplied with coal. The attention of Mr. Crandall was drawn to the fact that the institution was out of coal and he at once recommended Messrs. Williams & Peters, of No. 1 Broadway, wholesale coal agents for the Erie Company, to send to Messrs. Coughlin Brothers of the West End Coal Yard, one car of coal for the ex clusive use of the hospital. The coal was sold to the Messrs. Coughlin at such a figure which enabled them to sell it to the hospital authorities for $5.50 pet ton, last winter’s price. It lias been next to impossible to obtain coal at the pre vailing exorbitant prices and the conces sion to the City Hospital is highly appre ciated. -» MISSION WORKERS GOING. Will Attend the Presbyterian Meet* ins at Pinobush. Many members of the missionary socie ties of the Summit Avenue Uuited Pres byterian and the Second Uuited Presby terian Churches will attend the Mission ary Society meeting at the Presbytery at Piuebusli, N. Y., October 15 and 16. They will leave Jersey City on the 9 A. M. train from the Erie depot jnd will arrive there at noon. There will be three sessions, an after noou, evening session of the same day, and a morning session of the following day. The" Jersey City members are looking forward to the meeting and many will take part. -« CARRY-BRAUMANN.

HUDSON CITY COMPLAINT Newark ’Plank Road Agree ment Not Yet Ready for Ratification. A protracted caucus, at which meas ures to be acted upon at the meeting to be held later were discussed, preceded yesterday’s ession of the Board of Free holders, and as a result it was nearly six o’clock before Director Holmes called the Board to order. Freeholder I’a trick II. Nugent had not had timo to prepare his report on the plan to change the fuel system at the county institutions from coal to oil, con sequently the subject was not discussed. ■County Counsel Gifiin bad so many other county affairs to attend to that the papers in connection with the final adjustment of the Newark Plank Hoad matter were not ready and action on it was deferred to a special meeting Mon day afternoon, when the agreement will be formally ratified. A communication from Secretary Wil liam Henderson, of the Bricklayers and Masons’ International . Union No. 1, of N. J., requested that the masons em required to join the union. It was re ferred to the committee on county in stitutions. In this connection Director Holmes spoke of the board’s prompt response to the Building Trade’s Council’s request for on indorsement of the anti-Chinese law pending in Congress, and the success that had resulted. BUILDING ENCROACHES. County Counsel Griffin acknowledged the receipt of a communication stating that the building belonging to Ivoveu Brothers near the foot of the Paterson Plank Road hill encroached on the road. He said he had sent to Engineer Leahy for a survey of the county’s property and would report soon. The Hudson County Business Men’s Association, through Secretary Edward Burch, sent a communication complain ing about the condition of the Paterson Plank Road from Harrison street, Hobo ken, to Congress street on the Heights. He said a good part of the road com plained of was not included in the con tract for its improvement and thought a top dressing of macadam would mater ially improve the place. The road com mittee was directed to look into the mat ter. MORE BONDS. Three temporary loan bonds of $1,900 each were ordered issued to pay awards for damages and lands taken on the Boulevard Loop, and three for $1,500 each to pay similar expenses in connec tion with the main Boulevard. These bonds shall bear 4 per cent, interest and tlie amount of one of each will be in cluded in the three succeeding years’ tax levies. They will bear 4 per cent, inter est and will probably be purchased by the county Sinking Fund Commissioners. Bonds were ordered issued in $54,000 to pay the cost of the improvements and additional wings to the new asylum au thorized by an act of the last Legisla ture. This amount is less than the one fifth of the original cost of the building fixed by the act. The bonds will bear four per cent, interest, and will be sold at a special meeting to be held Oct. 20. Clerk Egan was directed to advertise for bids. Director Holmes explained the need for the improvement. He said there had been a public demand for it, and through •the earnest work of the Board's legisla ture committee the legislature had been induced to allow the issue of the bonds, and he thought it would be money well invested. *-* EPWORTHS ENTERTAIN. Hedd'ns Society Greets the Trinity Church Chapter. The Epworth League Society of the Hedding II. E. Church entertained the Chapter of the Trinity M. E. Church last night in the lecture room of the church. An interesting programme was provided and everyone enjoyed a delight ful evening. Mrs. Gardner and Miss Hall played a piano duet, Mrs. F. S. Wells gave a reading, the Rev. and Mrs. Gardner sang duets, Miss Hall played a piano solo and Mrs, F. H. Smith read several selections. After tho programme refreshments were served and a social hour fallowed. SOCIETY TOPICS i ' . . , 4-''ifo, , .<:j " i v ' Jersey City Woman Finds Coal Mine in Her Back Yard. BACK FENCE CATS RESPONSIBLE Pieces of Coal Fired at Felines During Her Absence Prove a Boon—Matter of Club Interest. These are the days when people may have money to burn, but it won’t buy anything to burn it with. * * Lucky is the housekeeper who has spent the summer out of town leaving her husband and sons home to keep house. She has found a coal mine in her back yard, and for once in her life gives thanks for the cats on the back fence, which made night hideous all sum mer, as well us for the extravagance of the men folk. Now, when that feline chorus strikes up about midnight when all is still, it is very apt to make a man firing mad. He is hot, so naturally he turns to the coal bin for assistance. This goes on night after night until the con tents of that bin are all fired out in the back yard, ^instead of in the kitchen range. Mere man, unmindful of the fu ture, has continued this extravagance all summer, and now his fond mother sends out and gathers up the pieces to bridge her over the coal crisis. * “Why,” remarked a well-known so ciety woman yesterday, "I don’t know what I should do if it were not for those eats last summer. I left my house in charge of my husband and three sons, you know, and now I manage to gather a pan of coal evefry morning; enough, with economy, to keep the fire in all day. You know very well if that coal had not been thrown out it would have been used up long ago. That is what I call casting your bread upon the waters.” * * * “If coal does not come down,” re marked a woman at'the Woman’s Club yesterday, “we are all going to pack up and go to Florida for the winter. It’s cheaper in the long run.” • * * Dr. De Hart, in her address to the Woman’s Club yesterday, impressed upon its members the importance of keeping in touch with questions of the day. It was an awful thing, she said, to be called upon to speak and have noth ing to say. We have had some experi ence with the woman who, when called on to speak, talks for half an hour and says nothing. * * * Miss A. B. Myers, chairman of the Woman’s Club Education Department, announced yesterday that she had been disappointed in securing Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt as speaker for her open ing on October 1G at the home of Mrs. J. H. Pratt, No. 22 Virginia avenue, but that two women who were in the Brook lyn School Board had been secured to take her place. The tenor of the meet ing is to be on Woman’s Suffrage in our Public Schools, the object, to stir up en thusiasm among Jersey City women on school questions. • * « Owing to the rain of Wednesday morn ing the first or qualifying round in the woman’s golf championship on the Jer sey City Golf Links was postponed. Meanwhile golfers are strongly backing j Miss Bertha Dixon, the present cham pion, who if she wins again will not only hold the challenge cup for gcod, this being her third champion game, but will have the additional honor of being the last girl to win a championship on the links, as there is nov' little doubt that the club will disband after December 1. The fall championship for both men and women will last until Thanksgiving, when the usual mixed foursome will be played, which will probably mark the last event on the links. ft The men will play the second round in their fall championship tomorrow. Sir. Frank Hodson, who won the spring championship, dropped to second place in last Saturday’s qualifying round, owing to a sore hand. He may, however, make it up tomorrow and stand a good chance of winning. * * * The ladies of the First Universalist Church, Ivy place, will give a calendar social in the church parlors this evening, combined with a reception to their new pastor, the Bev. Frank Thompson. Mr. Thompson was pastor of this church eight or ten years ago. He resigned to accept another call and has been absent from the city ever since. The Univer salists are delighted to have him back again. • * • The Travellers’ Club will open its s.-a sou Monday night, at the home of Mrs. John L. Hilton, No. 79 Clifton place, Several papers oh Jjortli Africa, the country chosen this year for study, will be read. The club is a purely social or ganization, started several years ago by some of the members of the First Uni versalist Church, and in an independent way connected witli that body ever since, thou,,a its membership is not limited to Universalists. It began with some sis or eight members, some of whom had been abroad, some of whom had not.

Henry Harrison, of No. 105 Clinton avenue, have invited some of their friends interested in astronomy to witness the eclipse of the moon on the evening of October 10. Mr. Harrison lias made a study of astronomy and is considered one of the best authorities on tiie subject in the city. He lias many photographs and one of the bekt paint ings on record of the eclipse of the sun which occurred about two years ago. Mr. Harrison at that time headed an expedi tion of Jersey City professionals to North Carolina to witness the phenomenon. The Harrison telescope is one of the best Jersey City affords. . * .
