New York's Big Celebration, New York is making a great fuss this week over the grant of municipal free dom which was made her people two hun dred a'nd fifty yean^apo. No doubt it is a notable occasion, well worth celebrat ing: but it it is a pity that the city does not retain a trifle more of the liberty both corporate and individual of the primitive period. At a time when citizens of Eastern towns were bduml in the primitive bonds of Puritanism, the people of New York were comparatively free agents. They lived as they chose, provided they let - other people alone. Nowadays, the con- 1 d’tion is changed. We cannot say that I j. t the J)owt>. East communities have gained ; in freedom; but nobodv can denv that , l New York has lost. Personal liberty .is j a very limited quantity in the town ’ where the Rev. Dr. Parkhurst governs i moral and political standards according to his own narrow gauge, and where ! General Greene makes the laws accord- 1 ing to which all mere ordinary persons ; shall live at least one day a week. As for political freedom. New York, i I rules and taxed with an iron hand by : the G. O. P. bosses at Albany, seems to have more reason to lament in sack- \ cloth than to rejoice in gaudy bunting.' How easily citizens of the great metro polis are fooled The Auto Horror. Is it not wonderful that any set of men should indulge in such a murderous game as automobile racing in these open ing years of the twentieth century. If anyone should propose a tournament now, in which armed men should wound and kill each other, he would he set down as a lunatic. But how would he be worse than the man who proposes an automobile race. Indeed the tournament has this much the best of it that only wilful participants are likely to be in jured, while in auto, road racing the in nocent are certain victims. Are we so very civilized after all? Or is onr civilization only another mask for the same old unchanged human nature? Spooning in the Prrk-. The present agitation against spoon ing in public parks is both cruel anil nasty. It iudicntcs gratuitously evil con ceptions of human conduct, and it seeks to inflict an outrageous privation. The young people who go to the parks to do their courting are the ones of all , others who have no evil intentions. Gen erally they have no other place to spoon in. They must go to the park or to the back room of a liquor saloon. They live in two and three room tenements. AMUSEMENTS, Majestic Theatre. The nearest approach to a genuine old fashioned Christmas pantonine is “The Wizard of Oz, the current attraction at the New Majestic Theatre, New York City, where immense audiences of play goers find in this return of an old of stage art an agreeable relief from the bombardment of inane musicail com edies which hove held the boards too Jong in the metropolis. Although “The Wizard of Oz” is founded upon a fairy story written for children, it is sufficient ly inspiring und alluring to engross the most sophisticated audience. It Was the aim of the authors, Fred R. Hamlin and Julian Mitchell, to devise an entertain Non-Irritating Cathartic Easy to take, easy to operate— Hood’s Fills ‘ liMk v£‘ -W.- .fV ment that would appeal to the playgoers of all ages and all degrees of intellect, to precocious juveniles and senile cynics as well. This was no slight undertaking but the fact that Julian Mitchell was tne stage director and guiding power of the production sets at rest any doubts as to the possibility of blending burlesque and pautomine and comic .opera into one de lectable heterogeneous whole. “The Wizard of Oz” has its origin in Frank Baum's delightful fairy tale of the same title, a work that brought de light ip to thousands of homes and has been pronounced by connoisseurs in folk lore and juvenile fiction an imaginative creation worthy of Hans Christian An derson. The opening illusion is a novel transition from earth to fairyland. The scene a first discloses a typical harvest field in Kansas, that much berated state which is famed for the fecundity of poli tical fads and grasshoppers. There are uiue scenes in the play ami nil of them are declared to be marvels of ingenuity and effectiveness. One tri- i timph of stage craft, in “The Wizard of j Oz" is the transformation at the end of the first act in which a field of poppy flowers in full bloom is metamorphosed from summer to winter. Over a hundred players are engaged in the production including pnntomimists, comedians, dancers, soubrettes, and show girls—all of them artists of established reputation in nearly every branch of stage work. 'Heading the army of merry makers are Montgomery and Stone. An incidental feature of the show is a ferocious lion, not a real one, but clever imitation by Arthur Hill, a young Eng lish pantomimir.t. Leading the fair contingent is little Miss Anna Lsttghlla, who as Dorothy the victim of the cyclone's rampages dances, tier way through the whole length of the play as a bit of veritable sunshine: Bes sie Wynn, Jeanette Lcwrie, Lottn Faust, and the essential coterie of show girls are up to tlie highest standard of twentieth century pulchritude. Last Week of Warfield. David Warfield’s tremendous business at the Victoria Theatre, New York where he is playing “The Auctioneer” to crowded houses/ would be one of the marvels of the season, did not his deli cate and faithful art in a characterization rich both in 'laughter and pathos, justi fy alt the high approval with which the public continue* to honor hint. He 1 Ki gali yesterday, the last week of what has proved the most successful engage ment of the year at the Victoria, again demonstrating David Belasco’s unerring judgment in measuring tne demands 01 the public. Mr. Warfield's portrayal of the Hester street auctioneer shows, at every turn, those Belascoan touches which give artistic detail to all the pro ductions of this chief among managers. It is the human quality that gives “The Auctioneer” and Mr. Warfield’s work in it such a continuance of public favor, aiul it is his sweeping success throughout the country that has forced Mr. Belasco to continue his star in the same play for another season. Manhattan Theatre. The last theatre attended by Andrew Carnegie before lie sailed from New York for Europe was the Manhattan, where “The Earl of Pawtucket” is still running Mr. Carnegie enjoys the theatre to a cer tain extent but says he does not care for serious plays. When he attends a the atre he wants to laugh. He sat at the back of a box when lie went to the Man hattan, and few people in the house knew that the distinguished multi-millionaire was there. But he was, and he sat until tlie final curtain with every indication of pleasure. Charles M. Schwab was there on another evening, but lie kept at the front of his box. and chortled with the greatest gusto all t he evening. The President of the Steel Trust is a hearty laugher, too. -♦ Costly to Admire, ' “Why is it that wealthy people be come so cold and cynical?” “They don’t necessarily,” answered Mr. Cumrox.

FINANCES ARE SAFE Association Has Provided for the Payments of Its Big _ Dabt. (Special to “The Jersey City News/') OCEAN GROVE. May 20, 1903.— What with the openly avowed intention t,o introduce gas iuto the camp meeting city, the various municipal improvements on the streets and avenues and the busy hum of preparation for tbe fast ap proaching religious season, the members of the association have little time to bother over the finances of the growing city by the sea. There has been a vast amount of money spent in Ocean Grove during the last ten years for modern improvements. Electric lights have been installed, water works constructed, streets graded and improved, new bulk heads and jetties placed on the ocean front. When the grand totals were laid bare by the finance committee and shown in all their portentous proportions to the executive committee, ways nr*’ means were discussed and a plan finally adopted by which the finances of the association will be placed on a strong and enduring basis and the big debt more readily car ried. Tlie association debt can hardly be called floating indebtedness, and the vast expenditures required tor municipal de velopment have been gradually recouped by rentals and the sale of land tenures. There is a large indebtedness, however, wliic^i was originally in the neighborhood of $100,000. and has been much in creased, which is taken by individual members, they holding the obligations of the association. A prominent official of the association stated yesterday that it was hoped much of this indebtedness would be liquidated. The indebtedness draws' four and one-half per cent, inter est. which is paid witli groat regularity. The mystery surrounding the postpone ment of tile semi-annual meeting last week is solved by the statement that at the request of bbshop J. X. Fitzgerald it was deemed advisable to defer the same, until May 27. when he could be there. There are a number of prominent can didates waiting to fill the places of de cease i members of the association. The reaper has been busy in this unique Methodist council during the last year. George W. Evans, the venerable secre tary, died in the winter. Rev. H. M. Adams and Rev. William R. Osborne, who was called the founder, have also passed away. It is stated that these vacancies cannot be filled at the meeting tomorrow, but the election will be held at the regular annual meeting in Novem ber. Ocean Grove, recognizing the continued existence of her more worldly neighbor. Asbury Park, and the great influx from the shores of Bradley’s domain during the summer months, has raised the approach to the Heck street bridge and now ac cess to the Grove is accomplished with out the former waste of energy required to mount the steep steps on the Ocean Grove side. To handle the immense throngs in the auditorium new stairways have been con structed, which lead from the gallery exits. The exit capacity has been doubled by this improvement. The secu lar side of the camp meeting city has not been neglected. All patrons will mark many important changes at the Lillagore pavilion, on the beach, which is now under the management of T. Nel son Lillagore, who succeeds his father. Mr. Lillagore is young enough to realize the requirements of the times. Reeog niaing the fact that refreshment on the beach is a legitimate enterprise, he has agreed to fill n long felt want. There will be a new restaurant established, several hundred new bathing houses con structed, a large reading room for la dies, and other improvements made. Mr. Lillagore will also discard the ancient bathing costume, made sacred by long usage in Oeenn Grove: It will become a hallowed memory, and a more pictur esque costume will take its place. At the Ro^s pavilion, Mr. Stalee, who is lessee of the Asbury Park Beach pa vilion, will open his stands in a few days to accommodate the rapidly arriving throng. Mr. Stalee iR now king of the boardwalk commerce, and enjoys a mono poly from the Ross pavilion to Eighth avenue in Asbury Park. The plan nearly adopted two years ago, to obliterate the white tent districts, has happily collapsed. Nothing more is 1 heard of it. The demand for tents on the banks of the two lakes and sur rounding the auditorium is unprecedent ed. All the tents cn Wesley Lake and in the vicinity of the auditorium have been rented, and but few remain ou Fletcher Lake. A prominent officer of the association said recently that tent life in Ocean Orore was growing in fa vor, and that additional lots on Fieiclitr Lake might be set apart for this primi tive class of habitation should the pres ent demand continue. INSTINCT IS THE TEACHER. How the Yoon® of the Feathered Tribe Are Citncalrd. There is a school of the woods, Just ns much as there is a church of the woods or a parliament of the woods or a Society of United Charities of the woods, and no more. There 13 nothing in the dealing of animals with their young that in the remotest way sug gests human instruction and discipline. The young of all the wild creatures do instinctively what their parents do nnd did. They do not have to he taught; they are taught from the jump, says a writer In the Atlantic Monthly. The bird sings at the proper age and builds its nest and takes its appropriate food without any bint at all from its par ents. The young ducks take to the water when hatched by a duck and dive and stalk insects and wash them selves Just as their mothers did. Young chickens and (young turkeys under stand the various calls and signals of their mother the first time they hear or see them. At the first alarm 'note they squat; at a eall^to food they come on the first day ns on the tenth. The hab its of cleanliness of the nestlings are established from the first hour of their lives. When a bird comes to build its first nest and to rear Its first brood, it knows how to proceed as well as it does years later or as its parents did before it. The fox is afraid of a trap before be lias had any experience with it. and the hare thumps upon the ground at sight of anything strange nnd unusual, whether Its mates be within hearing or not. No bird teaches its young to fly. They fly instinctively when their wings are strong enough. Thackeray Didn’t Wear Spnra. Thackeray was not a vain man, and he disliked vanity in others and made it the subject of his ridicule and sar casm. After long pleading his family in duced him to have his portrait paint ed, and Lawrence, a famous London artist, gladly undertook the task. Soon after the picture was complet ed Thackeray chanced to be dining at his club when a pompous officer of the guards stopped beside the table and said; / . “Haw, Thackeray, old boy, /1 hear Lawrence has been painting your por trait.” “So he has.” was the response. “Full length?” “No; full length portraits are for sol diers, that we may see their spurs. But the other end of the man/ is the principal thing with author^” 'said Thackeray. Dogmatism. A pretty snub delivered by a pro fessor to a very young and very dog matic undergraduate is refurbished in a work of fiction. "Dogmatism.” said the don sadly, “is puppyism which has reached maturity;” It may simllariy be said of dog Latin that it is chiefly used by pups.—London Globe.
