BATTLE Nominations All Made and Both Sides Prepared for a Fierce Battle. EXPECTATIONS UPSET A Dissensions in the Party and Indignation of the People Have Spoiled Republi can Plans. [Special to “The Jersey City News.**] TREXTOX, Oct. 20. 1C02.—All the nominations for Congress have been made by the two great political parties, and both sides are lined up for the fray, but the result promises to be far different from that which the Republican man agers had in view when they carved the State up into the ten new districts. In that partition they though they had so arranged things as to make sure of eight Republican Representatives, with one district certainly Democratic and one uncertain. It brought about some cur iously shaped districts to do this and keep within the letter of the act requir ing that all Congressional districts should be continuous aud contiguous territory. When the new districts were created there were in Congress from Xew Jersey two Democrats and six Republicans. The Democrats were Joshua Salmon, of the Fourth, and Allan I.. McDermott, of the Seventh districts. Mr. Salmon died last summer, and DoWitt Clinton Flan agan. oil Morristown, was elected by the Democrats at an uncontented special election to fill the uuexpirtd teim. THE XEW DISTRICTS. Xominations and elections are made this fall from the new Congressional districts for the first time. The popula tion, total vote aud pluralities in the new districts, as shown by the popula tion of 1900 and the vote on Governor last fall, are as follows:— Total Rep. District. Population.. Vote. Pin. First. 105,078 35.400 5,(503 Second. 109.037 35,251 0.902 Third. 181,5615 30,126 2,038 Fourth_ 102.820 34.713 1,100 Fifth. 202.290 38.702 1,530 Sixth-. 257 777 45.848 1,991 Seventh.... 177.100 35.182 3,099 ‘Eighth. 181.047 33.074 3,190 Ninth. 170.319 32,002 207 Tenth. 209,729 34.903 .... Totals_1,883009 361,207 In the Tenth District the Democrats had a majority of 9,205 on the vote for Govern or. FIRST IS DOUBTFUL. In the new First District the Republi cans have reriOfuinatKl Henry C. Loud ecsHger for a sixth term. The district consists of Camden. Salem and Glouces ter counties. There is a factional fight in each county among the Republicans, and the Democratic nominee. Richard T. Miller, is hopeful of there being enough dissension in the Republicans ranks to overcome the 5,CC3 majority Governor Murphy received in the trio of counties last fall. The old First district, which Loudenslager has represented for ten years, included Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem. His majority in the district two years ago was 12,773. That the hopes which the Democrats have of carrying the district are not en tirely groundless Republicans themselves will admit, aud when they are assured that their names will not be made public, some of the leaders will tell you thac they would not be surprised if Miller was elected. SECOND SURELY REPUBLICAN. Instead of seeking votes in Atlantic, Mercer, Burlington and Ocean counties, comprising the old Second District, which he has represented for ten years, John J. Gardner, the Republican nomi nee in the new Second, will seek the sup port of voters in Cape May, Cumberland, Atlantic and Burlington, which gave Governor Murphy 0.902 majority. Gard ner.’* plurality in his district in 1900 was 14,008. His present opponent is Thomas Gash, an unconverted Bryanite of Burl ington County. No one entertains any doubt as the result in the district and no one would be more surprised than the Democrats themselves if Gardner should be de feated. NOT SO SURE OF THE THIRD. The new Third district consists of Ocean, Middlesex and Monmouth coun ties. The old district was Monmouth, Middlesex and Somerset. Congressman / Benjamin F. Howell, the Republican nominee, has J>een in Congress eight years from the district. He was first elected in 1894, when he defeated Jacob A. Geissenbainer, his present Democratic opponent, by 3,970 plurality. Gessenhainer two years before had been elected over William T. Hoff man, the present Republican Assembly man from Monmouth, by a plurality of 3,327. Two years ago Howell’s plurality was 5,505. The Republican leaders are so much in doubt as to the result of the contest in tbe district that they are beginning to put forward apologies for Mr. Howell and at tempting to show that if he is defeated it will be caused entirely by the fact that he had not the heart to refuse a promise to anyone who ashed him for a favor, although it was impossible for him to keep it. Some people might be inclined to call that a politician’s trick. FOURTH FAVORS DEMOCRATS. As now composed the Fourth is an en tirely new district, including Somerset, Mercer and Hunterdon counties. The old Fourth district was Hunterdon, Mor ris, Sussex and Warren, and was nor mally Democratic by a big majority, the only Republicans who ever carried it be ing Benjamin F. Howey and Malilon Pit ney. Former Judge William M. Lanning is the Republican, and Colonel Lewis Coward Good Sense Shoe For Everybody. Something ' worth memo rizing about shoes:— That the name Coward on a shoe means the Best On Earth, for man, woman or child. And it’s all on account of the “ fit.” The better the “ fit,” the better the shoe Wears, Looks and Feels. From toe-tip to ankle-top the Coward Shoe i9 a trust worthy “true-lit.” Don’t take our say-so only. Come, and we’ll prove it. SOLD NOWHERE ELSE. JAMES S. COWARD, 268-274 Greenwich St., near Warren St., N. Y. Mall Orders Filled. Send For Catalogue* Perrine the Democratic nominee in the district. Governor Murphy carried the three counties last fall by 1.10C votes, but with Republican dissensions in Somerset and Mercer the situation this year is puz zling and tlie outcome problematical. However the situation favors the Democrats and many practical politic ians predict the election of Mr. Perrine. HARD FIGHT IN THE FIFTH. Congressman Charles Newell Fowler and De Witt Ciinton Flanagan are the opponents in the new Fifth dictrict, com prising Union. Morris and Warren coun ties. Flanagan is the Democrat ad in terim member from the old Fourth. Mr. Fowler now represents the Eighth dis trict. made up of Union county, Bayonne and Essex county outside of Newark and East Orange. There are factional fights in Morris and Union among the Republicans, but party leaders claim Fowler's re-election to be certain. The district gave Murphy 1.53(5 plurality for Governor last year. Fowler has had four terms in Congress. He was elected in 1900 by a plurality of 9,611. Tlie Democratic leaders are most hope ful of carrying the district and every phase of the situation indicates that they have every reason to feel so. BOODLE WILL WIN IN THE SIXTH. The chances of Colonel William Bar bour, the Republican nominee, are re garded as very bright in the new Sixth district, composed of Sussex, Passaic and Bergen Counties. His opponent is Wil liam Hughes, a young free silver law yer and orator, whose nomination was opposed by his party leaders. Barbour defeated Congressman .Tames F. Stewart, who had had four terms from the old Fifth district, comprising Passaic and Bergen Counties, for the Re publican nomination. The d.strict last year gave Governor Murphy 1,991 plur ality. The unlimited boodle which Colonel Barbour has at his disposal and is will ing to circulate freely through the dis trict, will undoubtedly make his calling and election sure. SEVENTH AND EIGHTH ONE SIDED. R. Wayne Parker, who has had five terms in Congress from the old Sixth district, is the Republican nominee in the new Seventh. Tis opponent is Colonel George A. Miller, a New York lawyer, who lives in Montclair. Mr. Parker's district formerly consisted of Newark and East Orange. The new Seventh is made up of the northern section of Essex County, including the First, Fourth, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Eleventh and Fifteenth wards of Newark, Orange, West Orange. Livingston, Bloomfield, Montclair. Glen Ridge, the Caldwells-, Verona and Nutley. Governor Murphy’s plurality in the district was 3,699. Major William H. Wiley, Republican, and Henry G. Atwater, Democrat, are the opposing nominees in the new Eighth district, which includes the Second, Third, Fifth, Ninth, Tenth, Thirteenth and Fourteenth wards of Newark, East Orange, Soutli Orange, Vailsburg and Mill'bura. Neither has been in Congress. The Republican plurality for Governor in the district last year was 3,196. NINTH AND TENTH DEMOCRATIC There is likely to he a close election following a lively campaign in the new Ninth district, taking in Bayonne, the Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth wards and a part of the Sixth ward of Jersey City, Kearny, Har rison and East Newark. The opposing candidates are Robert Carey, Republican, and Allan Benny, Democrat. Benny is City Counsel of Bayonne, and lias served in the Assem bly. Carey is Assistant Corporation Counsel of Jersey City. Governor Mur phy carried the district by 207 votes, and George L. Record, the Republican nomi nee for State Senator in Hudson last fall, had a plurality of over 1,000 votes in me section. There is no doubt, however, of the re sult, and the Bayonne man will represent the district in Congress. A ridiculous attempt is being made by Republicans and so-called Independent Democrats to defeat Allan L. McDer mott, the Democratic nominee in the Tenth. Mr. McDermott has served one full term and one short term in Con gress from the old Seventh District, the short term being to fill the unexpired term of William D. Dalv. .Tames M Manning, who was a Democrat until recently, is his Republican opponent. The district includes the First, Second. Third. Fourth and Fifth and a part of the sixth wards of Jersey City, Hobo ken. West Hoboken, Union, West New York, Guttenberg, North Bergen. Wee hawken and Secaucus. Mayor Seymour. Democratic nominee for governor, had 9,205 plurality. No one seriously expects Mr. Man ning’s. candidacy to affect the result ma terially and Mr. McDermott will suc ceed himself. STRANGE KIND OF ILLNESS Throat Affection Like Ton silitis Prevalent in Greenville. ONE HUNDRED STRICKEN - Alderman Ehrhart and Polios Captain Nugent Among the Sufferers. There is an unusual amount of sick ness in the Greenville section. Physi cians are at a loss to account for it. The malady is a throat affliction. Its symptoms are not unlike tousilitis, yet the doctors say it is not that. Those who are victims are first af fected with a swelling in the throat and inability to swallow. This lasts about two days, nnd a mild fever accom panies the threat irritation. Alderman Peter Ehrhart is confined to his home with an attack. He had to undergo an operation a few days ago when small growths were burned out of bis throat. Ilis voice had almost left him. It was impossible for him to speak above a whisper. His condition has im proved in the past few days aud a speedy recovery is looked for. THE SICK. George Leifer, an employee of Colum bia Hall, is conSned to his home with the same disease. A servant employed by Mr. Joseph Kaiser, the proprietor, has also been ill several days. Captain Thomas Nugent, of the Ocean avenue police station, has also suffered greatly for the past few days. Patrol man John Ernst, of Neptune avenue, is another who is thus afflicted. These are only a few of the great num ber of sufferers. It was said yesterday that at least one hundred people had been down with this illness during the past week. -* Y. M. G. A. BOYS’ CONVENTION Lecture Course to Be OponH Today by Mr. G. E. Garretson.
