TOO MANY RECOMMENDATIONS In an address on the- “Search for Men” recently in the Business Kconomy Course of the West Side Young Sion’s Christian Association. Now York City, Mr. H. .T. Hapgood, President of “Hapgoods,” said that one of the greatest evils in business today is the indiscriminate manner in which employers give glowing letters of recommendation to ever\ruan who has ever worked for them. It is no longer a kindness to give such a letter even to the man who deserves it for the habit has become so general that wise employers give little weight to these statements. “Th best testimonial I ever saw,” he said, “contained exactly fifteen words. It, read ‘worked for ns four years at $50 a week. Wish we could have him hack.’ If employers would give letters like that to men who have proved capable and trustworthy and make a rule never to give a latter cf any kind to an incompe tent man, it would be better for both em ployer tad employee.” JERSEY WATERS THREATENED Canal Abandonment Mea sure Hides a Scheme to Sell Outside the State, ■ - t MARKET IN STATEN ISLAND Combined Water Monopolists Determined to Disregard State Interests for Their Own. The Lehigh Valley Railroad Company’, which owns the Morris canal, iu recent conferences with opponents of the canal abandonment scheme, has definitely re fused to make an agreement that the waters under the canal company’s con trol shall not he. sold outside the State of New Jersey. The refusal to give this assurance evi dently has not heen because the company does not mean to use the waters in its possession for the supply of cities and towns, either directly or through its as j soeiated corporation, the East Jersey ; Company, for it has insisted upon the right to draw down the level of both j Lake Hopatkong and Greenwood Lake | to seven feet, when desired, for water ; supply purposes. It has been asserted | for some time that the interests of prop i ertv holders on the two lake resorts i | would be amply protected, but it is evi j dent that the company is not in earnest, ! as so great a reduction in the water level in summer would make the lakes unat tractive, if not unsanitary. The determination: of the combined water monopolists to sell New Jersey | waters outside the State, regardless of | :he needs of the communities inside and of the destructive effect upon the rivers seems 'thoroughly established, and it is probable the work now under way to sell to Staten Island towns, is only a small part of the scheme to enrich the monopoly at the expense of New Jersey. There is great danger that the canal abandonment scheme will be put through the present Legislature without safe : guarding any of,the public interests. Tlie | politicians have been afraid of it in the I last three years, on account of the effect j its passage might have on the Guhema ! toriai. Senatorial and Presidential elec tions. Now that these are over and the Republicans have a safe majority in the Senate for some time to come, the politi cal and corpora tion combine is said to be willing to risk tlie election of a Demo cratic Assembly, in order to carry out the j postponed scheme. The parties m interest comprise the most powerful corporations of the State and Lehigh Valley Railroad, with the Morris canai. which expects to get a large cash consideration: the Lackawan na Railroad, which expects to use part | of the canal for railroad purposes; the'' | Public Service Company, which Wants a j part for its trolley routes, and the East i Jersey Water Companjr. which wants the water. The Pennsylvania Railroad is also friendly to the scheme, and expects some benefit fro it on account of old agreements with the Leliigh Valley, dat ing back to the passage, of the early water bills by the Legislature. The attitude of the Essex delegation in regard to the whole subject of Morris Canal abandonment and water diversion causes much anxiety. The members are placed in the lobby lists at Trenton as solidly*for any bill for tins abandonment of the canal. This is based on the fact that politicians, in the interests of the scheme, have incorporated a demand for canal abandonment in the county plat forms of the Republican party, tints giv ing the members a partisan excuse for supporting the measure. One of the rea i sons given for the abandonment has now disappeared. It was alleged that the Lackawanna Railroad could not avoid grade crossings in Newark as long as the canal was in operation. By the plan of carrying the boats over the railroad this excuse has now been lost. JAMES DUNDAS MISSiNG. I .

EQUAL TAXATION TONIGHT Commission Expected to Pre sent Its Report Which Awakens Curiosity, (Special to “The Jersey City News.’’) TRENTON, Feb. G, 1905.—After hay mg done lees then ten hours’ reial work in regular meetings during,, the four weeks since the session opened- the Leg islature will meet tonight and open the fifth week of the law-making grind. The sessions of tonight and tomorrow are expected to bring -the opening guns of tile Equal Taxation fight. The Equal Tax Commission met Friday and Con sidered its report, and the document is expected t» appear in the Legislature either tonight or tomorrow. The pre sentation of the report will be the signal for the introduction of a number of -taxa tion bills. Among them will be that of Senator Mintum, Democrat, of Hudson County. Tiie main body of this measure has al ready been published, bat Senator M in tura has amended it in some important particulars. There is one contingency under which this bill will not be pre sented, and that is that the report of the commission will embody sufficiently the views on taxation held by Charles C. Black, as to receive -the snppirt of the -minority, or that with the minority re port which Commissioner Black is ex pected to present there will come a bill -around which the- minority can rally. There is little doubt that the Jersey City measures prepared by that muni cipality counsel, George L. Record, and providing for the taxation of first-class railroad property at local rates for the benefit of the municipality in which it is located, will make their apppearance as soon as the report of tin* commission shall have been m-ade public, unless some force of circumstances, now unforeseen, should bring about th-e insertion i-n the report of a recommendation of such a measure. It is the general opinion that the rail roads will put up a bitter fight against any legislation that will materially change the present tax laws, and when the taxation question gets fully before both houses it would not be surprising to see inaugurated one of the greatest leg islative fights since 1892. It is expected that with the equal tax ation bills there will come one providing for the creation of a body which shall have jurisdiction in all matters of appeals “from assessments. Another hill in connection with this that is looked for is one providing for a maximum tax rate in municipalities as advocated by Governor Stokes in his in augural address. Governor Stokes suggested $1.70 as the maximum rate, and any attempt to put that rate into law will he certain to pre cipitate a fight also, for it is known that Paterson wants legislative authority to increase its rate, which at present is above $2. on ttie ground that expenses cannot be met, and other municipalities will also battle against such a maximum ra te. Speaker Avis and Leader Iluffield have given plain evidence that they arc dis satisfied with the unusually slow progress being made by the two houses. They be gin to see that the ltepubliean lawmakers arc determined to make of the session the same easy time they have enjoyed for a number of years, when everything has been neglected until the last two weeks ofi the session, ami then the legislation jammed through any old way. This policy has been a detriment to the G. O. 1\, and the leaders have come to see that they must make at least, some show of earnestness. So the word will go around this week to “get busy,” in the hope of improving the had record of the past. i'oKrtl* Grace.

Heavey and Egbert Seymour seem to have^the centre of the political stage just now. Both are hot-footed af ter the Democratic nomination for Sher iff. which will not be made until next September and each is trying to outdo the Other in the way of getting clnb indorse ments. If these indorsements were all that was necessary Heavey would have an easy thing of it. . Although the contest for the Demo cratic nomination for Mayor is overshad owed by the fight for the Shrievalty nom ination, tho friends of Archibald M. Honry and Assemblyman James Ifamill, who up to the present time, are the only active aspirants, are keeping a watchful cj’e on the respective booms. Mr. Henry is busy on his own hook and he is add ing daily new friends to his already long list. Assemblyman Ham-ill because of his needed presence at Trenton hasn’t had much chance to do any canvassing. He expects that the record he will make on the equal taxation proposition when it gets before the legislature will be a sufficient guarantee to the people of Jer sey Gity that the municipal government would be safe uuder his control. Two Newark policemen the other day pleaded guilty to an indictment charging thorn with breaking into a butcher shop and stealing two turkeys. A Jersey City pqjfcemao is under arrest for alleged coin pi'iciiy in the robbery of Pennsylvania freight cars, and as if this was not enough a North Hudson “cop” is accused [ of having “swiped” a ham from a res taurant Republicans have a little family af fair on their hands that is liable ‘to cause ructions -utiles® matters are straightened out. Gov. Stokes, and all the big guns in the party, are directly ecme«-ned. The trouble is over the appointment of a Deputy Clerk In Chancery to till the ! vacancy caused by the death of Gen. S. AT. Dieklnson. Gov. Stokes wants Ed vard M. Applegate to gett the place. Applegate is a politician. Chancellor Magic thinks a lawyer should^ be ap pointed!, and it is said he has one in mind who he is sure would fill the bill. Or dinarily it wouldn't make much difference who the Chancellor wanted, but in this ease he has raised the point that the ap pointment is under his control. It is this claim that is bothering the poSiticrans. They insist that the Clerk in Chancery | should be allowed the privilege of naming j his deputy. If the Chancellor is right in his contention that will dispose of Mr. Applegate's chances. There is talk that the Clerk in Chancery will make the ap pointment in accordance with the wishes of the politicians and leave it for the Chancellor to decide afterward what he will do in the matter. The Equal Taxation Commission is still struggling with that problem. Al though the report lias been prepared, tiie commissioners are unable to agree on the main points. Several conferences have been held without result and an other is scheduled for today. Governor Stokes, ns well as other Republicans, are growing impatient over the delay. Tlhe report is eagerly awaited and ef forts will be made at. today’s conference to get it in shape for presentation to the Governor either tonight or tomorrow. Charles C. Black has ideas on the sub ject of taxation reform that do not meet with the approval of his col leagues. He thinks these views should be made known, and as they will not tie incorporated in the report, h# will file one of his own. The Jersey City Baseball Club is still without a home for next summer. Up to a fevfi days ago if was thought there might be a chance to play on the old grounds, but the Park Commissioners, who have acquired the sit<^ have been advises! that the law does not permit the leasing of the grounds. They cannot he used except for park purposes, though there is no likelihood of the pro posed park being established this year. Local fans need not be alarmed.

ALL POLAND ON STRIKE Grand Dukes Oppose Reform and Influence the Czar On the Hun. LONDON, Feb. 0, 1905.—The St. Petersburg correspondent of tbe “Chron > icle” says he has learned from a good source that 6,000 reservists mutinied at Peterlxif, their open insubordination be ing the culmination of disaffection that had existed for a fortnight They are now under arrest in their bar racks. A despatch to the “Daily Graphic” from Sebastopol says that a court-mar ; tial has sentenced eleven mutinous sail ors to terms of imprisonment ranging from four to fifteen years. Sixteen had minor sentences imposed upon them and seven were acquitted. The court refused to grant the Imper ial Attorney’s demand that sentence of death be passed on the four ringleaders of the mutiny. Several hundred of the rebellious sailors are still in custody. Another mutiny on Sunday was sup pressed. The naval barracks are strong ly guarded. POLAND ON STRIKE, WARSAW, Feb. 5, 1903.—Practically the whole of Poland is now on strike. A state of siege has been proclaimed in the Governments of Kalisz, Kadom and Siedlce. There has been fresh fighting at Radom, The Old Believers, a religions sect, are ‘ reported to be burning orthodox ehnrches at Siedlce. Three already have been de stroyed. Thousands of strikers from Dombrovo, carrying flags, marched toward Sosnow ice. but Cossacks intercepted them and drove them back without any blood1 be ing shed. Baron Molekin. chief of police of Warsaw, has been fired at twice lately. CZAR’S BACK TRACK. I.OXDON, Feb. 0. 1905.—The St. Petersburg correspondent of the "Tele graph” sends information that the Czar is being forced by the Grand Ducal coterie away from his attitude in favor of reform. The correspondent says that without rhyme or reason another extraordinary volte face has taken place m Government spheres which betokens an increase in the Grand Ducal influence, marks fresh opposition to the popular demands and makes confusion worse confounded. He reiterates the main points of his previous story concerning the attitude of M. Witte. President of the Council, and II. Yermoloff," Minister of Agriculture, in- favor of reforms, and says that after continuous labor a touching and impres sive manifesto was drawn up, which would have gone far to win back to the autocracy the forfeited sympathies of ■the population. It was impressed on the nation that whatever might be urged against the bureauseracy the Czar was the protector and father of the people. It was an nounced that his Majesty had ordered a. special/court to investigate the events of .Tan. 22. and that lie decreed that the shedders of innocent blood be punished, the victims suitably provided for. and that genuine grievances of the workers be bettered by legislation which would take precedence of other reforms. Tlie manifesto, which was admirably worded, was about to be presented to his Majesty for signature, after which its promulgation would have followed1 imme diately, when Court Minister Baron Fredericks appeared and made a state ment to the effect that the reception by tlie Emperor of the deputation of work men at Tsarkoe-Selo and bis gracious ad- ; dress to them would seenro all tin d«sir- j able efforts aimed at by the manifesto, : while eliminating its many disadvantag es.

TWjulil then be obviated of prolonging the ■public -excitement by aw inquiry and of punishing zealous men for doing what they reasonably believed to be I heir duty. As for relieving the sufferers, the Czar would give 50,000 rubles for die pur pose. His Majesty had- for these reasons or dered him (Baron Fredericks) to thank the framers of the manifesto in his name for their well-meant advice and zealous work, and to inform them that he con sidered the manifesto superfluous. Thus the golden bridge by wlik-li it was in tended to connect the autocracy with the Russian people has been for the sec ond time destroyed by those for whose use and benefit it. was constructed. Continuing, the correspondent says that at present things are in a bewilder mg tangle once more, ami tie omy sSeude/ hope <for the moment: lies in the reform labors of the Committee of Min isters, always supposing that they are not nullified as the manifesto has been. SITUATION ON THE HUN PARIS, Feb. 6, 1905.—1The St. Peters burg correspondent of the “Echo de Par is” says that he has good' authority for believing that the following telegram was addressed to Russian military headquar ters by Gen. Gripenberg, commander of the Second Manchurian Army. “We had taken several fortified positions, but not being supported in time had to retire. During the retreat I lost 10,000 men.” The St. Petersburg correspondent of the “Petit Journal” learns that the re turn of Gen. Kuropatltin has been provis ionally deckled upon. But he says it is exclusively due to reasons of health. Gen. Kuropatkin, he says, is suffering from cerebral anaemia. The "Figaro,” on the contrary, declares that there is not an atom of truth in the report that Gen. Kuropatkin is to be recalled. SCHOOL THIEVES CAUGHT Hopkins Held in $1,000 for the Grand Jury and Hutchinson Wants Extradition. Detective-Sergeant Gallagher, with the aid of Detective-Sergeant MeClus key, of Brooklyn on Saturday arrested John Hutchinson, alias Wilson, in Brooklyn.

John Timmins, thirty-five years old of Xo. 633 Henderson street, met with a frightful but almost instantaneous death by an electric shock shortly after eleven o'clock this morning. He was shovelling off snow from the pavement in front of his house at the time. The weight of ice had broken a telegraph wire aud it lodged on the arm of an electric light wire post, from which it became charged with electricity. The wind blew the dniig liug end of the telegraph wire thus charged against Timmins’s body. It struck him first on the left hand, and he drew up both hands to his chest, still grasping the snow shovel. The wire swayed by the wind seemed to lash his two arms and the shovel to his body and to hold him. He gave one piercing shriek and expired. The wire still held him in its grip. The wire was removed by Con stable Charles Corydou DEATH FROM FREIGHT CAR, Samuel Pritchard, twenty-seven years old, of No. 77 Vroom street, while drill ing cars on the Meadow yard of the Pennsylvania Railroad early this snorninte fell from the top of a freight ear nmler the wheels and was cut and crashed to pieces.
