In considering the question whether Democrats should be advised to vote against the Single-Headed Street and Water Commission propsoal or should be advised to ignore it altogether, account must be taken of the results that would follow' a rejection of all the ballots marked for or against the scheme. It may be taken for granted in the first place, that a considerable majority of the Republican voters will vote upon the question, for the most part, in favor of the* One-Headed Commission. If an equal proportion of Democrats should vote against it, the first effect would be the defeat of the measure itself without recourse to the courts. If, then, an attempt should be made to exclude the ballots marked for or against the proposition, it ought necessarily apply to the Republican as well as to the Democratic vote, and therefore, presumably, about 90 per cent, of both alike would be vitiated. Now, if 90 per cent, of the entire vote of Jersey City, fairly distributed pro rata between the two parties, were to be thrown out, would not the net results be favorable to the Democracy? In the first place, it would insure the election of the Democratic Sheriff beyond the possibility of a doubt. If the Republicans have any show—of course they have none, but assuming, for the sake of argument, that they have a chance—of electing their man, it is wholly dependent upon the vote of Jersey City. Eliminating Jersey City from the jirobldfn and the county is as sure to bg Democratic by four to five thousand plurality as the sun is to rise on the morning after Election Day. In addition, not only would the Tenth ( on greSsrekal District be a sure thing but the Ninth also. The voting strength of the Republican party in the Ninth district is all in the eighth and ninth wards of Jersey City, and, if 90 per cent, of these wards wfere disqualified on technical grounds, the Democratic candidate would have a walk-over. Similar considerations apply to the new office of County Supervisor ana ro ine twelve gentlemen who are to run on the Assembly ticket. If Jersey City s vote ' were excluded in whole or part, their majorities would be made more certain. There remain the local Jersey City offices, two members of the Street and Water Board and the Aldermen and ■ward Freeholders. Respecting these, it is !piain enough that if the Republican vote and Democratic vote were diminished in the same ratio, say 90 per cent., the remaining 10 per cent, would be legally the vote of the city, and there is every possible presumption that this would have exactly tlie .same political color that the total vote would have had. In other words, it would be 10 per cent, of the Democratic vote in each ward pitted against 10 per cent, of the Republican vote, so that whatever ward would have been Democratic on the whole would remain Democratic and whatever ward would be Republican on the whole vote would remain Republican, and the city at large would be Democratic or Republican on the 10 per cent, vote just as it would have been on the total one. As a inatter of detail, it is likely that a change would rather favor the Democracy than otherwise, since a large pro portion of Republicans would be apt to vote for the Street and Water Board act than of Democrats against it. Booking at the situation in this way, we cannot see that the Democracy has anything to lose by boldly taking the risk and voting against the proposition. Many excellent lawyers believe that the courts would not reject the ballots on account of marking txy indicate preference on a Question of this kind conducted on a uniform system.” They would consider the obvious intention of the Legis lature in passing thd'law and they would consider that the County Clerk acted in accordance $vithi implied powers in completing any reasonable device to en able the voters to record their will on the ballots. At any rate, as we have shown, even if the court took the most literal view Bf the stiatute, the Democracy would have the best and not the worst'of the com plication. Therefore we consider that the party leaders should advise the voters to mark their ballots against the outrageous proposition according to such plan as the County 'Clerk may adept. , t NO CONSTITUTIONAL VOTE THIS YEAR. If was erroneously stated, a day or two ago, that a vote would be taken ' this year npon the three constitutional amendments which have recently been ad vertised in the papers. The vote will not be taken until next year and then only In case the Legislature again adopts the amendments. This is the second consecutive year in which a series of constitutional amend ments have>been advertised, but the advertisement last year was informal and Invalid. Owing to the blundering of the Republican Secretary of State's office, the work had to be begun all over again by the Legislature. JOHN KEAN AS A POLITICIAN. 1 r John Kean has stolen another march upon his arch adversary, Charlie Fow ler. While Fowler is backing and filling as a public benefactor, promising free libraries and other donations for the people's weal, Kean comes to the front With a substantial donation to the fund for supplying Elizabeth’s poor with fuel during the present coal famine. In consequence, while the people are say ing harsh things about Mr. Fowler's failure to produce his long promised lib rary building, they are shouting themselves hoarse in praise of Mr. Kean’s phil anthropy. If Mr. Kean keef>s on the way he has been going of late, those people who hare looked npon him as very much of a political nincompoop will have to re vise their ideas r ' T MITCHELL’S NATURALIZATION MILL. The revelations from Mr. Mitchell’s naturalization mill compel the opinion that he is either an unmitigated ass or an unconscionable rascal. The questions which are reported as being put to candidates for citizenship are wickedly ab surd. They have nothing to do with the fitness of the candidate, and in many cases they are such questions as not one out of five hundred native born citizens could answer. On a rough guess we should say that not one person out of a thousand would give the full list of the Presidents correctly on a first attempt, and we should think not one in five thousand could tell the present basis of population of a Congressional district. We doubt if one per cent, of the inhabitants of New Jersey could name offhand the twenty-one counties of the State. What in thunder Mr. Mitchell meant by the date of the framing of the Con stitution, nobody but himself knows. The question is idiotic in terms as well as unsuitable in purport, and the question as to the name of the Governor of Pennsylvania was fully as idiotic as any of thq others since a test of general in telligence is not contemplated by the law and it is by no means essential to good citizenship to carry in one’s head a whole “World” Almanac. The purpose of such questions is only too subject to suspicion. It is im possible to believe that they were framed without sinister motive. _ AN ABSURD FINE. ^ • There is something laughable about the act o£ a Judge in one of the New York courts, who fined Nicola Tesla $100 yesterday for failing to answer a sum mons to do jury duty. It is surely one of the wastes of society that a genius of this kind should be called upon to do petty routine work. Tesla’s time*is of in culcable worth, not to himself aloue, but to the community ns an inventor and an electrician. It is worth about a dollar a day as a juryman. There surely ought to be some common sense iu the office of the jury cotn ■\ i mission. The principle that the law is no' respecter of persons was never in tended to cover cases of this kind. MR. BERNSTEIN’S GOOD SUGGESTION. Mr. Joseph E. Bernstein is deserving of cordial thanks for the action which he has taken in regard 'to the coal situation. His check for $100, as the nucleus of a fund to aid in supplying the poor with coal is no more valuable than his sug gestion. The idea which he broaches is just as practical as it is kind-hearted, v and we have little doubt that it will meet with cordial support from the busi ness community in general. We agree with Mr. Bernstein that no difficulty will be found in eliciting the aid of coal dealers in various sections of the city, and both the money and the time of citizens will doubtless be forthcoming to make the work a success. Mayor Fagan ought to act promptly on Mr. Bernstein’s suggestion and call a public meeting at his office for the purpose of organizing the work. We are inclined to differ with Mr. Bernstein as to the length of time that coal will remain as high as $10; but the strike is not over yet, and it certainly will be some time before the edge is taken off the prevailing demand. It cannot be doubted that the price will remain above the normal figure throughout the winter. _ , K WORKING PLAN FOR THE FREEHOLDER. The difficulties in the way of carrying on the County affairs from now until January 1 appear to be satisfactorily met by Mr. Walsheid’s concession, in not entering up his judgment of ouster against the Board of Freeholders until the term of the present Board has expired and a new and legal Board has taken office. Probably an appeal will be filed as a matter of additional precaution, but very likely the case will not be argued. The opinion of lawyers is practi cally unanimous that the law of 1900 is unconstitutional. Practically all are in accord with Judge Dixon’s ruling and the only purpose of the appeal would ' be to give the present Board a working status for the balance of the year. v 9 ST. MICHAEL'S CLUB PLANS Progressive Euchre, a Dance and Football and Bowling Teams. St. Michael’s Club is preparing for an active season in the social and athletic world. Thursday evening, October 23, there will be a progressive euchre and dance given in the parish hall, corner of Erie and Tenth streets. Over one hundred prizes will be played for. A dance will follow the euchrei Under the direction of the Rev. Mark Duffy, president of the club, a football team will be organized. Candidates for the teams are:—Will iam Ronan, John Goren, Matthew Casey, John Delaney, Arthur Scott, John Dunn, Martin Ford, Matthew Casey, Dennis O’Brien, Frank Riley, Daniel Mc Carthy, Daniel Green, Patrick Martin, Thomas Malloy and Edward Welsh. Bowling and pool will be indulged in The uronoRaniam yyfaritlie,, prom on a large scale this winter. The "bowl ing committee is composed as follows:— James Curley, John Sullivan, Thomas Foley, Patrick Martin, John Larkins, Joseph Hardman, Bartley Corliss, John Welsh and Joseph Lamb. The Pool Committee:—John Corrigan, Sylvester Delury, Edward Welsh, Martin Ford, George Beattie, Robert O’Donnell, John Goren and George Walmesley. _A_ AMUSEMENTS. New York Theatre. Carl Hagenback presented bis groups of marvelously trained animals at the New York Theatre, Broadway and For ty-fifth street, New York, last evening. They made a hit that has never been equalled by any similar exhibition .in the history of the metropolis. The discipline and intelligence displayed by the large number of animals shown were remarka ble. Finer specimens of the brute crea tion have never been seen in captivity. The numbers on the programme which attracted special attention among the many superb features displayed, were the seven great Polar bears, hitherto sup posed to be animals of the lowest intel ligence, who were shown in a series of remarkable tricks by their trainer. Prof. Dudak, who wrestled with the 700-pound bear, “Jluf’e.” The power of control this man exerted over these giants of the. Polar creation was amazing. A feature which made a tremendous sensation was tigers, a hybrid (half lion and half tiger), two leopards, tijro pumas, two jaguars, two Polar bears and five German boar hounds, all under the control of one man. These animals, always regarded as hereditary enemies, were as quiet and peaceful among themselves ns a lot of kittens and performed a wide variety of feats at word of command, obeying in stantly, showing undoubtedly the most astonishing example of animal control that has ever been keen in the world. The sea lions, the singing seals, the ele phant that played horse for two trained tigers in an equestrian act, the military birds, the giant monkeys, the Russian and Thibet bears and the Cashmere goats, among many other exhibits, re ceived much attention and enthusiastic applause. At the conclusion of the per formance, the audience, composed large ly of ladies and children, cheered the ex hibition and the trainers, an incident that seldom occurs in a New York theatre. FUEL FOR HOBOKEN. Mayor Lankering, Mrs. Alex ander and Others Talk of Relieving the Poor. Mayor Adolph Lankering was in con ference with Richard Stevens and Mrs. C. B. Alexander, of Castle Point, and Palmer Campbell, treasurer of the Ho boken Laud and Improvement Co., yes terday, trying to adopt means of re lieving the poor of that city in the event ofa continued duration of the coal strike. Mrs. Alexander, who was one of the organizers of the Helping Hand Coal Club, has been giving the matter con siderable attention of late, and believes that some official action should be taken by the Mayor to anticipate the problem that will confront the city in the event of a coal famine. No definite decision resulted from the conference, it being agreed to take some steps towards raising a, fund' before for mulating any plans. Mr. Campbell said he believed it would be possible for him to contract for some of the consignment of 300,000 tons of coal to be shipped to a New York firm from England at a considerably lower, price than that for American coal. The Mayor promised to lay the mat ter before the Common Council at its next meeting. _A_ Third Avenue Theatre. If there is an Irishman within twenty miles who fails to see “The Ivy Leaf” when it is given at the Third Avenue Family Theatre next week, he will miss the treat of his life. The good old play lias been given a new setting in fine scenery specially prepared by Mr. Jos. A. Physioc, the great New York artist of the Garrick Theatre. A fine cast, headed by Herbert E. Denton, will inter pret the pretty story of Irish love and adventure. In addition to the fine act ing, there will be seme really good sing ing of Irish songs. Mr. Denton is noted for his swee# tenor voice. No maiden could resist the combination of a manly presence and tender voice such as Mr. Denton’s. The play is of absorbing heart interest to men and women of every land. It is a story of love and bravery that will apeal to all and there is not a dull moment in it. Such plays are wholesome and good and do much to take the curse from the insipid and stu pid attempts on the stage to depict vapid immorality. “Tlje Ivy Leaf” is under the able management of J. Frederick Thomas. TRAVEL WELL WHEN TRAVELING It’s an art to travel, did you ever think of it in that light, and there is as much difference in roads as there is difference in houses. A well kept road station, polite and obliging employes, a train which shines inside and out, aisles carpeted, a profusion of light, an agree able order of architecture in the design of the car, a powerful locomotive able to make and keep on time, a road-bed of heavy iron and rock ballasted too and a running schedule fast enough to suit you, all this in addition to a picturesque country to travel through, and you have pretty near a model road. Such are the conditions of the New Jersey Cen tral, which road operates the famous hourly service between New York and Philadelphia with a train every hour and on the hour in both directions. To Baltimore, Washington and the West, the New Jersey Central operates the Koyal Blue Line, which has the finest day trains in the world. An attrac tive pamphlet is issued by the General Passenger Department of the New Jer sey Central, New York City Dept. R. B., which sets forth the advantages interest ingly, and if you want to drop a card to the above addresg. It’s free for the asking. ._A ..— ▼ LANTERN SLIDE SHOW. Greenville Camera Club to Show Results of Summer Work. At a meeting of. the Greenville Camera Club a few days ago, it was decided to have a lantern slide exhibition at Schuet zen Park. The date set was Novem ber 8. ‘This committee will arrange all details:—Thomas O'Brien, Emil Graef, Pete')1 Boag. C. H. Chavant and George Van Blaricon. The pictures exhibited will be those taken by the members while on trips throughout New Jersey and other States. -♦ ZABRISKHE RELIEF CORPS DANCE The Zabriskie Woman’s Relief Corps No. 23 held a meeting last night in the Avenue House. Although nil the re turns have not been received from .the peach and ice cream festival given two weeks ago, the treasury has been swelled considerably. The entertainment commit tee was instructed to arrange for a social and dance the latter part of the month. ST. LUCY’S EUCHRE PARTY. The committees in charge of St. Lncy’s Em-Lsf, to be given October 16, are working rntrd, and promise a pleasant evening to all who attend, whether.they play or not. About one hundred p ires have been collected. Many of ■. hem''ore very handsome and costly. After the games there will be dancing. Tickets are In great demand, and a large atten dance is expected. LECTURES ON“LONDON.” Stereopticon views and a lecture on “London” were given last night in the Bergen Baptist Church, Clinton and Madison avenue, by the pastor, the Eev. Mr. Moore. A large and appreciative audience enjoyed the entertainment. SOCIETY TOPICS Women’s Golf Championship Tournament Begins on the Links Today. WOMEN AND THEIR WAYS The Shopper Who Requires One Day to Bay, the Next to Exchange—Inci dents in Social Circles. The average woman requires two days to do her shopping—one to buy in, the other to exchange. One rainy day last week a Jersey City woman entered her husband’s office. “I come to borrow your umbrella, my dear,” was what she accosted him with. “It wasn’t raining when I left home.” The husband sighed, relieved, and went to fetch the umbrella. “But,” said he, hesitating, “what do you want with another umbrella, you’ve got one in your hand? “Yes. I know,” replied the wife. “That’s my new umbrella. I bought it yesterday and I’m taking it back to change it.” * * • Judging from the six-foot women in police garb, the big colored women as carriage attendants, and a woman with a big artificial head which winks two wicked blue eyes at the men as thex. pass, the Woman’s exhibit is somewhat of a freak museum. One might almost take it for a Barnum circus with its female clowns. . * . They are threatening to cut off gas for cooking purposes in Brooklyn—tlint is to say, from 8 A. M. to 5 P. M. on account of the shortage of coal, wood has gone up out of the reach, oil has ad vanced one per cent, per gallon, and be fore tlie winter has begun even the liens wilt refuse to lay, all on account of the coal strike. Never before did the nation realize how dependent upon heat was the productiveness of man gud nature, and it needs not the sign of the goose to predict a severe winter, wherein noth ing but prices can be raised. . * . When it comes to the pass when even the refrigerator plants must shut down for want of coal, it looks as though the Universalist belief of punishment on earth was being meted out to humanity, and that that punishment was a hell where even the devil might skate. • * • Scientists tell us that the effect of ex treme heat and extreme cold is practi cally the same. In view of the present coal famine, according to this theory, it looks as though we might yet exper ience an August in all its horrors of an increased death rate, somewhere about January. • * * An umbrella hung on a fence in a fre quented street in this city Sunday morn ing for five hours, despite the hundreds of passers in the rain. This suggested a test to somebody in Chicago. In eon sequence an umbrella left on a quiet north side street was taken three times in thirty minutes, though the sun shone brightly and scarcely two score pedes trians passed, which only goes to prove that honesty is the 'best policy in a crowded street. Had the Chicago test been made in a more frequented thor oughfare, the temptation would not have been as great. * * * Isn’t it about time the W. C. T. IT. struck Wall street? Money has been tight there for a week, and if the market is not converted pretty soon even the bulls and the 'bears will take to drink. . * . The women began feminine events on the Jersey City golf links this morning with the qualifying round for the Wo man’s Fall Championship and Challenge Cup. Eight will qualify, and the cham pionship will be played off in three rounds, four being beaten in the first, two in tbe second and one in the third, leaving but one of the original eight, or the champion. It is generally supposed that Miss Bertha Dixon, the present champion, will again win. * * * The Florence Players, or. better, the remnant of the Florence Players, for that organization has dwindled down to al most nothing, has been rehearsing for a production to be given under the auspices of the Grace Church Choir Guild, in the parish hall of the church, Erie and Sec ond streets, on Thursday evening. “The Little Savage,” a farce in one act liy J. M. Morton, is the piece chosen, and those who will take part are:—Messrs. Harry Moore as Major Choker, Robert Deats as John Parker, M. Le Blanche as Lionel Larkins, H. Sweeney as Jona than, Miss E. Robins as Mrs. Charles Melville, and Mrs. M. Redfern as Miss M. Wilson.. There will also be a musical •programme under direction of Mr. Moritz ,E. Schwarz. Both Mr. and Mrs. Schwarz will participate, and there will be selections by Messrs. Victor Edward Smith, Walter L. Pye, Joseph Hough, William Higjgins, G. Bauer, Messrs. E. M. Decker, O. Jefferson and J. Cobb. Glee s«igs will be given by the choir. . • • • Two years have passed now since the last appearance of the Players’ Club and still there is nothing in sight for this year. It really looks as though “The Players” was a thing of the past. Like the Greenville chnrch choir, marriage has depleted its ranks and it has been killed by Cupid’s arrows. Nothing like music and acting to lure the little god. , ( ' * * « Preparations for the great bi-yearly fair of St. John’s Church, under the auspices of the three guilds—the St. Mary. St. Hilda and Junior St. Hilda— are progressing rapidly. The date set is the seventeenth. Mrs. E. L. Stoddard Scrofula It is commonly inherited. Few are entirely free from it. Pale, weak, puny children are afflicted with it in nine cases out of ten, and many adults suffer from it. Commpn indications are bunches in the neck, abscesses, cutaneous erup tions, inflamed eyelids, sore ears, rickets, catarrh, wasting, and general debility. Hood's Sarsaparilla and Pills Eradicate it, positively and absolute ly, This statement is based on the thousands of permanent cures these medicines have wrought. “ My daughter had scrofula, with eleven sores on her neck and about her ears. Hood’s Sarsaparilla was highly recommended and she took it and was cured. She is now In good health.” Mas. J. H. Jokes, Parker City, Ind. Hood’s 8arsaparllla promises to cure and keeps the promise. and Mrs. E. S. Forbes are in charge of the whole, while the guilds will act un der their presidents, Miss Mabel Plenty, Mrs. E. L. StoddArd and Mrs. H. E. Niese, respectively. * * * “Before one can join any of the classes of St. John’s Institute, says “St. John’s Bulletin,’’ he must become a member of the institute. Membership tickets cost $1 per year or any part of a year, and the institute year begins October 1 and ends September 30 following; thus the current year begins October 1, 1902, and ends September 30, 1903. Each member of a guild is given an institute ticket gratis. The holder of a ticket has the privilege of joining any class in the in stitute, except tlie senior and junior gymnasium classes, and it gives a cer tain number the privilege of entering even these classes. The reason the gym nasium classes are not thrown open to the public is that the number wishing to join them is so large that only a few be sides St. John’s young men can be ac commodated, nnd fcr several years these few have been elected to membershoip by the Guild of the Iron Cross, most of whose members are interested in ath letics. • * Mrs. Fanning Chilton and her little daughter Helen, of Xo. G41 West Side avenue, left town yesterday to spend a couple of weeks with Mrs. Chilton's mother-in-law, Mrs. Bruce Chilton, for merly of this city, at the latter’s home in Montclair. * * * Mrs. Ivnower of Xo. 21 Belmont ave nue, has just, returned from Wyckoff, X.
