P, Leader, (Special to "The Jersey City New*.") j TRENTON. March 21, 1905*.—Assem blyman Manners, of Essex, treated the Hudson Democrats to a genuine surprise last night when toward the close of the session he jutrdfiueed a hill which As semblyman Sootr, “the I-one Slar Re publican” from Hudson, had presented last week and then caused it to lie with drawn from the House calendar two days later, when he learned that lie had arous ed the opposition of the Mayor Fagan Republicans of Jersey City. To say that the Hudson Democrats were surprised’ that an Essex Republican member would father a measure which would antagonize Mayor Fagan’s admin istration would lie putting it mildly. “Well, what does this mean?” inquired Assemblyman Duff. “It looks as if the Republicans were going to have a lively bout among themselves before (tie ses sion is ended and that the majority in tends to rub it into Mayor Fagan.’’ Tltis is the ‘bill introduced by Mr. Man ners :— An act authorizing the appointment of boards of city hospital trustees, defin ing their powers and duties, and pro viding for the purchase of lands and erection, and equipment -of buildings for hospital purposes in the several cities of tliis State.

All acts and parts of acts, general or special, inconsistent with the provis ions of this act lie and the same are hereby repealed, and this act shall take effect immediately. Speaker Avis referred the hill to the Committee on Municipal Corporations, of which Assemblyman Harry Seovel, of Camden, is chairman. Assemblyman Mariners would dot dis cuss the bill last night or state who in duced him to present it. “It speaks for iteself.” was all that he would say. From another source it was learned that ever since Mr. Scott had withdrawn a similar measure. Messrs. Watson and Phelan, two of the old Board of City Hospital Trustees ignored by Mayor Fagan, have been skirmishing around the State m tm it efforts to find a sponsor for lilt- Hill. They appealed to the Es sex members, stating that the bill offered an opportunity to the Essex Republicans to even things with Mayor Fagan and Cor|>oratiou Counsel George I,. Record, who had “rapped” the Essex members (Hi the Epual Tax measure last year. Mr. Manners, ft was stated by the gossips at the Spate Capita! last night, had consented to tube (he bill and intro duce it provided that Colonel S. I), Dick inson was satisfied. Whether be con sulted the doughty Colonel about the bill before offering it, could not be learn ed last night. Mr. Manners would not say whether or not he bad, and the latter eonld not Ik* found. Regardless of whether Colonel Dickin son sanctioned the bill's introduction, it may be stated that. Sir. Manners would never have attempted to introduce a bill affecting Jersey City unless it had re ceived the “O. K.” of somebody el cite besides Messrs. Watson and Phelan. Ex-City Hall Custodian and ex-i*ros< cutor's I)elective EndU Date. of Jersey City, was an iuteresies vpevtatvx in the Assembly Chamber fast uhrht, and lie chuckled with glee when Mr. Manners introduced the bill. He refused to make any comment fur publication, but showed plainly that he was greatly pleased that it had been presented. ' Mr. Data and Mayor Fagan are no longer on speaking terms since the -Mayor ousted him as City Hall Custodian, and Mr. Datz has never lost an opportunity to show his antagonistic feeling. Assembly-mail Scott, when asked what lie thought about Mr. Manners's action, replied: "I have nothing to say. Mr. Manners is privileged to introduce any iiill he likes. 1 have washed my hands of the bill and 1 have no farther interest -in it.” When asked if he would support it, he stated that he had not read the bill introduced and knew nothing of its pro visions except what he had heard. He wanted an opportunity to scrutinize the bill before he expressed any opinion. The consensus of opinion among the •habitues at the State Capital last night was that if the Manners bill becomes a law the building of a new hospital for Jersey City would become more entangled than ever. The board appointed by Mayor Fagan would carry the fight into court ryith the result that the building of a new hospital would be tied up until the litigation was over. Minority Leader Hamiil, speaking for flit Democrats, said last night that they would solidly support the Manners bill if it came before the House. He was in clined to believe that it would never leave the Municipal Corporation Committee, unless strong pressure was brought to bear upon the committee to report it. NEW ALMSHOUSE Assemblyman Alexander’s Pet Measure Enabling Freeholders to Build Has Passed. (Special to "The Jersey City Xetvs/’) THfiJiTOA, March 21, 1905.—There was no prouder lawmaker in this city. last night than Assemblyman Archibald S. Alexander, of Hoboken, when lie learned that the Senate had passed his pet measure enabling tlie Hudson Coun ty Board of Freeholders to issue bonds to erect a new a’nishonse at Snake Hill. It was tlie first bill that he had intro duced. tills belli" his first term as a mem ber and ilie first bill that passed both Houses. It now goes to tlie Governor, wlio. it is said, will sign it. Mr. Alexander was the recipient of many congratulations by his colleagues and friends upon the sitccjps he had achieved, tie experienced considerable difficulty in getting the hill through both Houses. The Uepuldicnu majority did not look witii favor upon the provision I of tlie bill which enabled the Freeholders ! to erect the new almshouse. They i sought to induce Mr. Alexander to allow the bill to lie amended so that a com mission appointed by Judge Blair could do tlie work. Mr. Alexander refused, contending that the Freeholders \fere capable of supervising the work. Colonel Dickinson, it was said, also favored the commission scheme, and at one time threatened to use Itis influence to defeat the bill unless it was so amended. Mr. Alexander declared that lie had good reasohs for allowing the Freeholders to erect the building, and his strong arguments carried the day. Ills mother, Mrs. C. B. Alexander, of | Castle Point, also exerted her influence i in behalf of her son's bill, and then Col j onel Dickinson withdrew bis objections. Mr. Alexander said last night that if j Ids bill was signed by tlie Governor be hoped tlie Board of Freeholders would j start work on the new almshouse as hnr 1 riodly as possible, as tlie new doubling was sadly needed. MSNTURN’S CAPITAL BLL .i ' fSpeelfri to "The- Jersey City News.”) TUEXTOX, Maveil 21. 1905.—Senator Minium. of Hudson, holds the record for having introduced the largest number of bills i-m the Senate. East night he pre sented five measures, mid his record tip to date is ^0 hills, w two more than was offe-i-l by Senator Brown, at Monmouth, tlie next on the list. One of the measures the Hudson Sen ator introdneed last nigli't is regarded as ono of the most importnnr corporation hills presented during the session, Imt as iho Republican* are in control of both Houses it is not likely to leave the hands of the committee to which it was re ferred. Hie bill prohibits the purchase . .- . - _ , - , r ♦ - TO CURE A COLD IN ONE DAY Take Laxative Brotuo Quinine Tablets. All druggists refund the money if it farla to core. E, W. Grove’* signature Is on each box, 25c, and holding of the capital stock of a corporation or any part thereof by an other corporation without legislative au thority. It reads ns follows:— Be it enacted by the Senate and Gen eral Assembly of the State of Mew Jer sey:— 1. Ir shall not be lawful for any cor poration rivalci! by the laws of this State to purchase and hold the capital stock of any other corporation without first making application by petition to the Legislature and obtaining legislative con sent by joint: resolution thereto. 2. Any corporation which shall violate the provisions of this act slmll upon proof of such violation before the Court of Chancery upon bill filed for that pur pose by flip Attorney-General and the entry of the derive of that court sustain ing thAehargcts of the hill be proclaimed forthwith by the Governor in the man ner corporations are now proclaimed for the non-payment of State taxes. 3. This act shaH take place imme diately. Another bill gives Recorders in sec ond class cities authority to try assault and battery cases, which authority is now vested in Police Justices in first class cities. Another measure enables Societies for the Prevenfion of Cruelty to Animals to incorporate without applying to the State organization. This bill is asked for by President George W. McCarthy, of the Hudson County society, who was Mr. Minturn’s opponent for election as Sena tor last fall. Another bill which was drafted by Town Attorney Augustus A. Rich, of West Hoboken, enables litigants- in chancery to advertise against absent de fendants in suits to acquire Che title of lands. Another requires court stenographers in first class counties to act as Mono grapher for the Orphans' Court at a sal-, ary of $500 per annum. FOR JURYlaMMiSSiON (Special to “The Jersey City News.'*) TRENTON, March 21, 1905.—Sen ator Wakelee, of Bergen county, intro duced a hill last night affecting all coun ties in the State having a population of more than 100,000. It takes away the power of the sheriffs of such counties to draw grand and petit jurors and pro vides for the appointment of a jury commission of three members to be named by the Supreme Court justice si ting in such counties to perform duties. The commissioners appointed under flie act are to serve for three years and are ! io receive a salary of $500 each yearly for their services. They shall present to the court a list of grand and petit jurors for each term containing double the number required for each panel, half of which shall he stricken from shell list by tlie court. In toe absence of the Supreme Court justice, the county law judge may strike off the names of jurors not needed. This b'll was introduced at the re quest of the State Bar and Hudson Comity Bar Associations, it is said, who have recommended that there should be a change in drawing of grand and petit jurors.' Senator Wakelee is a lawyer practicing in New York, but bis knowl edge of the present methods of drawing juries in this State lias convinced him that a change in the system was essen tial. His bill was referred to the .Ju diciary Committee, of which he is chair man. That the jury commission lull will encounter considerable opposition in both Houses is regarded as a foregone conclusion. In nearly all counties with 100.000 or over the Republicans have elected sheriffs, except in Hudson and Essex, where Democratic sheriffs go out of office this fall. With such a condi tion confronting the Republicans, it is regarded us certain that the sheriffs in Republican counties will oppose the pas sage of tlie bill, apd if they stand to gether will succeed in accomplishing its defeat unless it is so amended as to ap ply to such counties ns Hudson and Es sex. The Republican sheriffs succeeded in defeating a similar measure several years ago. claiming that it would deprive ■them of considerable patronage. A question has been raised a« to the constitutionality of a jury commission law. The sheriff is a constitutional of ficial. and it is claimed that the Legis lature cannot deprive him of any of the prerogatives of his office. poligYIaTwin, tSproial to “The Jw^y f'lty TRENTON. March 21, 11105.-As senibJyiiwiu Scott, the "Lone Star” Re publican from Hudson, 1ms not given tqi all hope of securing legislation <o en able the police of Jersey City to secure an Increase of salary. Last night he mrfved is the House that the vote by which the police bill, ki.vwii as Astern -y,-— .1-—- ^ —-— ~ bljr 114, jmsscil, be reconsidered. There being no opposition, it was so ordered. Hr. Scott then moved that tlie bill be referred back to tlie Municipal Corpor ations Committee for tlie pnrpfi.se of amendment, and there, again living no objections it was so ordered. Mr. Scott will now seek to have the bill so nifiended as to meet the Govern or’s objection. It will lie remembered that it was passed by both Houses sev eral weeks ago, but when presented to the Governor .the latter objected to some of its provisions, one of which was that the bill made it mandatory upon the au thorities of Jersey City to grant the in creased -salaries. As the Governor re fused to sign tlie ibll as passed, there was no other alternative for Mr. Scott than to have it recalled. The refusal of tlie Governor to sign the measure was entirely unexpected by the Jersey City policemen, who were , anxious to have their salaries raised to $1,200 a year. A committee awaited upon Colonel S. J). Dickinson and inter ceded 'with him to come to their rescue. The colonel promised that lie would. That thp colonel kept his word was evi dence!! bv the action taken by Mr. Scott j last night. ' Chairman St-ovel, of the Municipal Corporations Committee, said last night that the committee would probably re port the bill with the desired amend ments to-day or to-morrow, so that it could lie passed hy tlie House this week. The amendments proposed leave it op tional with tlie Jersey City authorities to grant the increase of salary. BILLS INTRODUCED. (Special to “The Jersey City News.’*) TRENTON. March 21, 1905.—As semblyman Hamill introduced a bill in the House last inglit providing for the adoption of the Bertillon system of iden tifying criminals in this State and the creation of a central bureau at Trenton for such nurpose. The bill further pro vides that the Governor shall appoint a .superintendent for a term of five years, who shall have charge of th£ system with power to appoint an assistant. All convicts in the Trenton State Prison and those in the Railway Reformatory shall i lie measured according to the Bertillon system, and duplicates of description shall be filed with the superintendent. Within six months after the passage of the act. the bill further provides, alj municipalities having a population of 15.000 or more shall adopt the Bertillon system, and all persons charged with ! felony shall lie measured according to the system, and duplicates of measure ment shall he filed with the State snper ! iutendcnt. The central bureau at Tren I ton shall be open or at the disposal of S all judges, prosecutors, police depart ments, probation officers and detective bureaus for the purpose of identifying criminals. Senator Mattheus introduced a bill which is designed to save Anna Valen tina, who is now under sentence of death at Hackensack, from the gallows. It provides that no woman shall suffer tile deatii penalty for murder, but shall be imprisoned for life. Assemblyman Alexander introduced two hills. One provides that the Board of Education of any municipality shall liave discretionary power to allow a child between seven and fourteen years of age to remain from school when by so doing ttie child does not become a pub lic charge. The other makes it a mis demeanor for a widow or grass widow to wilfully refuse to support her chil dren in cases where the father cannot be found. Assemblyman Hunt, of Salem county, introduced a bill regulating the speed of automobiles. This is about the eighth of a similar kind that lias been intro duced during the session, but the auto mobilists have put up such a strenuous light against their enactment that all are still slumbering in committee. Mr. Leyden, of Paterson, introduced a hill giving nil municipalities power to insure public buildings. Assemblyman l.overidge, of West Ho boken. presented a measure which is de signed to enable persons arrested for a crime in one county to offer bail in an other county. For example, a person arrested in Essex county can produce' a bondsman owning property in Hudson county to obtain his release. Assemblyman Miller, of Cumberland, introduced a bill repealing Chapter 112 of the Laws of 1002. Mr. Bobbins, of Burlington, introduc ed a bill authorizing npy Board of Free holders to purchase a turnpike in the county either at private sale or by con demnation proceedings. Mr. Alexander offered an amendment to the act creating the State Board of Children's Guardians. The amendment proposes that whenever the board may have, a dependent child it shall have dis cretionary power to make the mother of the child also a dependent, for the pur pose of allowing the child to remain with the mother until a suitable home out u« ’“i • J MERELY MENTIONED The Jackson Democratic Club, whose headquarters are at Newark avenue and Warren street, will make merry at Elks’ Hail to-night on tlie occasion of the an nual ball of the club. The Jackson Club is an hiiluential organization of Hebrews and it, is .speeded that all the aspirants for offices next fall will attend the ball, tlie proceeds of which are to be distrib uted among the poor . ebrew families of tlie lower section of the 't’ity. ^ There was a report at the City Hos pital to-day that Edward W. Gray, of Newark, one of tlie Board of Tenement House Commissioners, intended resign ing and that the vacancy would be tilled by tlie appointment of George McCar thy, of this city. Mr. McCarthy, in case he is appointed, will resign from the Bourd of Heaitii and Mayor Fagan will then add another appointment to his list. The Tenement House Commission ership is a desirable appointment, as it carries with it a big salary, while mem bership in tlie Health Board is honor ary. Hudson County at present has no representative bn tlie Tenement House Commission. There is sotne talk in Hoboken of the Democrats of that city nominating Col. Edwin A. Stevens for mavor. What a blessing it would be to Hoboken if Mr. Stevens couU. lie induced to accept the nomination. His election would he prac tically unanimous, and for the first time in many years that city would have a businesslike administration, free" from petty political squabbles over appoint ments and corrupt influences. Oswald It. Itouth has announced him self as a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Sheriff. Good thing Mr. Itouth gives his address as otherwise no one would know that such a man was in existence. He says he .lives at. No. 121 Linden avenue, and adds that he is popu lar and a thorough-going Democrat. Come to think of it Mr. Itouth ran as an independent Democrat for Sheriff three years ago and received in the county close to 100 votes. , A man who could .make such a tine showing must neces sarily be popular and the Democratic leaders had better give Mr. Routh's can didacy some consideration, else he might iake it into his head to run ugt^u on the independent ticket. \ The City Hospital promised by Mayor Fagan during his first term of office is to he built after all. Corporation At torney Carey is responsible for the state ment. He save the Board of Health has a H^the necessary legislation to go ahead with the proposed improvement and that the preliminary work will be started within a few days. A statement of this kind has been made by one member or another of the Fagan administration on an average of once a month for the last three years. --. The prompt appointment by tlie Court House Commission of James J. Billing ton as superintendent of construction means that, no time will be lost in push ing the improvement forward. As soon as the neeirssary property has been ac quirer! by condemnation proceedings al ready instituted the commission will ad vertise for proposals, and it is probable that before the first of, May the contract for work on the $ 1 .tXW.OOO county build ing will have been awarded. Egbert Seymour's friends realize that he has a big contract to overcome the sentiment that prevails throughout tin County in favor of the nomination of John J. Ileavey for sheriff. They feel •certain that he will accomplish the task, and that when the time for making the j nomination rolls around the fide will have changed in. his tavor. Heavey's i friends do not think the same way. They claim that the sentiment for the under sheriff is of the lasting kind and that it will increase In volume rather than di minish. The prospects are that the tight at the primaries will he one that will long he remembered in the history of Hudson County politics. i - ' -- Mayor Eagan was a guest at a stag given by the Eirst Ward Demoerafie Club at its rooms on Gregory and Mont gomery# streets Kt. i'afrieks night, and in a speech he made lie said that when lie. cast his first vote for mayor he made up his mind that he would he mayor of Jersey* City some day. "While I hare realized my ambition," he. sam. "I frank ly confess that 1 did not eaipcet it would eoiue so soon—ten. years after the day ‘ «,, !«r«V this city lias ever had. He is also the first Republican to succeed himself. The Newark Sunday Cali, one of the most influential newspapers in the State, has this to say on the proposition to ap point another Democrat than Charles C. Black on the proposed State Court of Taxation: “The appointment on the State Tax Commission, as reorganized under the proposed law. of any other Democrat than Charles C. Black would he a great disappointment—to flic friends of Gov ernor Stokes chiefly. They would fear they had been mistaken in the man.” fatherTocues. Interesting Lecture by Rev. J. J. Campbell Last Night at St. Peter’s Hall. 'A very large audience enjoyed the lec ture* on Rev. Father Isaac Jogues by the Rev. T. J. Campbell, S. J., at St. Peter's Hall hast night. He graphically pictur ed the hi hoi*; of the great missionary? among the Indians in what is now New York State and Canada at a time when a white man’s life was in constant dan ger. The speaker pictured Father Jogues as the most daring and intrepid among all the heroic band- of missionaries in that period of the history of America. He described the tortures which Father Jogues underwent when brought down from Quebec as a prisoner to the Tillage of t he Mohawks near Fort Orange, bow Albany; of his subsequent mission as an envoy of peace in June, 1646, and later of his beieouimg the'apos tle to the fiercest of the Iroquois to be put to death by that tribe in hatred of his faith. The eloquent speaker recited the fact of the purchase by the Society of Jesus of the scene of Father Jogues’s tortures and martyrdom and the erection of a memorial thereon whk-h has since be come a place of pilgrimage. Father Campbell said that it was now proposed to erect a permanent chapel there, instead of the present temporary one. He said it was also proposed to erect a statue to Father Jogues. The proceeds of Father Campbell’s lecture, which were about $400, will go toward the erection of the chapel. LEE EVANS SENT TO BROOKLYN Leo M. Kraus, who was arrested- in this -city by Detective-Sergeant Frank Bennett last Wednesday on a warrant charging him with forgery, was held for extradition to Brooklyn in the First Criminal Court this morning. Detective Sergeant Kelly, of the Brooklyn police headquarters, was in court and recited the principal points of the charge against young Evans. He had a warrant from Magistrate Furlong, of Brooklyn, for Evans’s arrest. The complainant is William T. Springer, the father of Evans’s young wife, who as a Brooklyn High School girl eloped with him and was arrested in Brooklyn Wednesday while ou her way to Jersey City to join her husband, after having unsuccessful ly having tried to get rid of two checks purporting to have been written by her father. _.
