M.JENRY Introduced By James J Fielder He Reoeived a Unanimous Vote At Last Night's City Convention. PROPHECIES OF VICTORY PARTY ORATORS DECLARE THE FIGHT ALREADY WON—CORY DON, DONNELLY. KREUTZIG NOMINATED TO THE OTHER CITY OFFICES. Harmony was the watchword at last night’s Democratic City Convention, held in Elks' Hall. Archibald M. Henry was practically elected Mayor. He was given a splfudid ovation, along with those ten dered to Thomas J. Corydon and Frank l" -sv-Uy. w ho were nominated for Street a rut TVater Commissioners. Phhip J. Kruetzig. who was nominated for Alder ma-j-av-large, got almost as much ap plause as Mr. Henry. The hall was crowded to its utmost capacity. Many woroer were in the gallery. The hall was tastefully decorated with American flags. No bands were present to help arouse enthusiasm. They were not need ed. Enthusiasm was rampant. Chair citizens. Former Assemblyman .Tames Fielder placed Mr. Henry in nomination for Mayor. In liis most eloquent manner he pictured the phases of the career of the Mayoralty candidate, showing that lie was well 'able to fulfil) the duties of the chief executive of the city. "He is a business man of intelligence and has a patriotic regard for the city. I think 1 am naming the next Mayor of Jersey Citv." The eloquent James Haiuiil seconded the nomination. “I hasten to reiterate the words expressed by my esteemed friend. Mr. Fielder,” he said. "I know that Mr. Henry possesses all the splen did faients and ability required of a man to fill the office of chief executive of such a greut city as this. I predict that he will lift from the dust in which the Dem ocratic banner has been trailing in this el(y during the last four years and will carry it to victory.” Philip J. Kreutzig, of the Hudson City section, was nominated for Alderman at Larg- ; Jiout opposition. He is a for mer Ertcise Commissioner and a former president of the great Arion Club, of the Hudson City section. Counsellor Ciccar elli made the nomination. It was sec onded by President Gustav Klingensteiu of the German^American Club. The nomination went through with bells on. It was made by acclamation. Eugene V. Leake made one of the brightest speeches of the evening in nom inating Thomas J. Corydon for Street and Water Commissioner, In soeakhnr of the "Pirates of Finance and Frenzied Finance” he declared tbe:e was noi a "greater eollossal swindle in New Jer sey than the Republican party.” He de clared tbe Republican party had forgot ten all its promises and practically ruled hy a "set of unclean and greedy corpora tions.” During the course of his eloquent speech Mr. Leake used the name of Rob ert Da vis. Tiiere was a spontaneous out burst of applause. Mr. Leake wound up his intensely fascinating address by say ing: "In the name of that old-time Dem ocrat whom all loyal Democrats revere— Thomas Jefferson—and that old. scrappy but man of great value. Andrew Jack son, I nominate a man for Street and Water Commissioner known by his inti mates as Tony, but by t*he public at large as Thomas J. Corydon.” The nomination was ^seconded in an able speech by P. F. X. O’Brien, who, ARCHIBALD M. HENRY, Democratic Candidate for Mayor. man James Hennessy, of the Democratic City Committee, called the convention to order. Secretary Murphy of the C'ity Committce was made temporary secre tary of the convention. The unanimous choice for a chairman was for former Police Justice James Murphy. The ex-judge got a most flat tering ovation. He was escorted to the chair by Patrick Colohau, Patrick Stew art and Frederick Grotli. The crowd was on to Henry, and as soon as former Mayor Seymour of Bay onne was recognized standing near a door that leads to the stage, the convention delegates broke into a genuine chorus of yells. When lie took a front seat on the platform the ovation was repeated. Mr. Ivreutzig followed Mr. Seymour and the Eleventh and Twelfth Wards dele gates let their throats loose. And in this they were joined by delegates all the way to Greenville, to say nothing j of„the demonstration of the delegates! from the Horseshoe and Gammontowu. But when Mr. Henry, the Mayoralty nominee, appeared upon the stage, the building was fairly shaken by the ap plause which greeted him. One delegate insisted that the nomination should he made by acclamation. The chairman de clared that that would not he legal and when the roll of delegates from the twelve wards were called not a delegate i answered “nay. "The party is united.” said an old time Gunnuonttfwiier. “This means Democratic victory, sure!” Judve Murphy. ,as chairman of the convention, was 'giveh. a splendid ovation, i He related an anecdote from which he drew the following moral—that the iilat form to be adopted would be broad enough for every man to stand upon. ; He reviewed Mayor ' Pagan’s hospital project, t’ne shortcomings of the Mayor’s Finance Board in not giving better pav ed and lighted streets, and when he al- \ luded to Jackson avenue there was a | wild outburst of applause from a certain j section of the hall. “Times and things.” i he declared, “never looked brighter for ! Democracy. The Democracy ot the city j has been defeated twice, but is not yet i discouraged- Mayors may come and Mayotv will go, but the principles of Democracy will go on forever. It is tb. I duty of every man who believes that the city should be run on business prin ciples instead of in the interests of poli tics, to vote the Democratic ticket.” Joseph P. Farraef was made perman ent secretary and. .it was he who called the roll of the delegates and read the platform. Charles C. Black, who was introduced as a man “who needed ho introduction to a Democratic audience.” Mr. Black, who carried his county on the platform of “Equal Taxation.” almost he lone county in the United States under ’the Roosevelt tidal wave—was given a tre mendous ovation. Hi« was a Democratic speech straight from the.heart and shoul der—“Equal rights for all. Special Special privileges for none.” He declar ed he felt sure that the platform that would be adopted by the convention would be based upon “justice and right.” It was interesting to note that the men who inade the nominations and seconded ih»m ww* men of epUuidid reputation ‘•v-; 4 in the course of his briliiant remarks, said that the city's reputation was judg ed by the men who govern it and he ap peal* d to the patriotism of the people to stand for the Democratic nominees. Counsellor Joseph Tumulty, of the Fifth Ward, nominated Frank Don nelly for Street and Water Commis sioner in one of the ablest speeches made in the convention. He said: "The rapid strides made by the young men of today are for better citizenship. Mr. Donnelly was raised within the confines of the old Fifth Ward and within the hallowed walls of old St. Bridget's church. We love him for the glodious qualifications that have made him a suc cessful business man. The old Fifth Ward has recently been the scene of political^ battles but she has come back to her first love. She is now minister ing to Democracy in her hour of peril and need. The wouns of the war have been already healed. The Fifth's Dem craey is rejuvenated' and invincible.” All the candidates responded to cries for speeches and were given great ova turns. The following committee was ap pointed to fill vacancies on the ticket, if any "Should possibly occur:— •T'01 ui Shaughnessy, John F. Cleary, John Ferris, Ernest Y.

HENRY’S SPEECH OF ACCEPTANCE Democratic Mayoralty Nom inee Declares the Princi ples That Will Influence His Executive Rule If He Is Elected* THE PEOPLE FIRST OF ALL MUNICIPAL AFFAIRS WILL BE RUN ON STRICTLY BUSINESS LINES WITH THE PUBLIC IN TEREST AS THE END IN VIEW. In accepting the unanimous nomination for the Mayoralty at last night’s Demo cratic city convention. Archibald Jft Henry said:— “Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Convention:—I take this opportunity, my fellow citizens, to thank you for your unanimous nomination for the Mayoralty of Jersey City. “To be Mayor of a city in which one lias spent his whole life aud where all his interests are, is an honorable aud worthy ambition. “I wish to impress on' your minds at this time that I believe in the principles adopted by this convention. “You have said in our platform that municipal affairs should^be a matter of business aud not politics. 1 believe in that principle. “If elected Mayor (and let me say that I expect to be elected Mayor of this city on November 7) I will serve the city faithfully, guard its interests, enforce an efficient aud economical administra tion. add will see to it that a fair and ad equate return is made to the city for every municipal franchise granted. “My insistment will bo. no .perpetual franchises have been granted without adequate compensation. "From time to time in the past city franchise have been granted without proper return to the city. If elected it will be my aim to return to the city, by lawful means, its just rights in ffie fran chise obtained originally for almot noth ing. having in view a readjustment, of the terms upon which these franchises are now held. “I believe.that the people of Jersey City are paying altogether too high a price at this time for the gas furnished, and I will insist that the rates for gas be lowered to such a price as investiga tion will determine as just when com-, pared with the cost of production and service. “I favor legislation under which every municipal franchise will be (assessed for taxes, as property, the samg*as the prop erty of individuals is assessed. “I believe in equal taxation for all property, individual ns well hr corporate, and to that end I will advocate a law for the taxing of main stem railroad property at local rutes for 1he benefit of the city. Main stem property now pays at the rate of only five dollars per thou sand dollars of valuation, none of which goes to the eity. You pay twenty-seven dollars and forty cents per thousand on your property. Can any oue suggest a good and sufficient reason for this differ ence? I do not believe there is a good reason for it. The declaration of the State Democratic platform of IU104:— ‘An equal valuation and an equal tax rate’—is the declaration of a sound economic principle which should he em bodied in tite law of the State. "1 believe that the Mayor should ap point as the legal advisers of the city lawyers in sympathy with these princi ples. who are competent to manage the affairs of the city without the assistance of outside counsel retained at an enor moils expense. "To all appointive boards I pledge the citizens of this city that I will appoint men of recognized character jind business ability. "The construction of a City Hospital has been unreasonably delayed. I am in favor of building a new Hospital at once that will give proper accommodation to the sick aud injured of our city and be in every case a creditable public improve ment. Factional politics should not in terfere with such public necessities. “The anuual expenses of the city have increased abnormally during the last four years. “The expenses as fixed for the next fiscal year ty the present administration are S46o.C00 more than was spent dur ing the kat year of Mayor Hoos’s ad minis! rat inn. “Is there anything to show in the p.es ent condition of the city the necessity of tiiis increased expenditure? "We want many new schools, we want clean streets aud better sidewalks, we want additional parks and playgrounds, we want the water question settled at once and the city's interests protected, we want revenue from the South Cove, we want the Hackensack water front owned by tiie City, we want to beautify aud improve our city in every possible manner. “It will be my ambition to have all these improvements made and maintained on a strictly business basis. "It will be my effort to give Jersey City a clean, clear cut. economical busi ness administration. "I believe that those principles and our platform will meet with the approv al of a majority of our citizens, and I confidently ask them for their support in electing me Mayor of oar city.” DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES Ringing Arraignment of Re publican Rule and Un answerable Auguments in Favor of Archibald M. Henry’s Election. CITY’S DECLINING CMDIT ENORMOUS EXPENSE OF THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT COUP LED WITH A NEGLECT OF THE PEOPLE'S INTERESTS, CALLS FOR A BUSINESS INSTEAD OF A POLITICAL ADMINISTRATION The following is the platform adopted by the Democratic City Convention last night, when Archibald M. Henry was nominated for Mayor, Philip Kreutzig for Aldermau-at-Large and Thomas J. Corydon and Frank Donnelly weire nom inated as Street and Water Commission ers :—■ The Democratic Party of Jersey City in asking the citizens and taxpayers of the city to support its candidates at the coming, election, insists that municipal government should' be a matter of busi ness and not of politics. We charge that the administration of the affairs of Jer sey City during the last four years lias beSW mainly, if not wholly, wade a mat ter' of politics, and we call upon all citizens who have the welfare of the city at heart to condemn this selfish and degrading policy at the polls. The annual expenses of the gii vest ment of the city have been increased 54b8.bti9.48 during the last four yesflfs. Koi<t)iis large increase in the yearly ex penses of the city the present adminis tration is directly responsible, and has gives *no adequate return to the people of *tf>.l city. Such permanent improve ments as have been made have been covered by issues of bonds, or from the proceeds of license fees. The credit of the city was never lower than if. is at the present time. This is due mainly to three causes: First, the extraordinary increase in the cost of the City government: secondly, the subordi nation of business to politics; thirdly, the juggling with the City's Sinking Funds. The result is that the City is unable to sell its bonds at a premium. In coiftrast with this, attention is called to the fact that under the last Democratic adminis tration, that of Mayor Hoos, the bonds of Jersey City were sold at the highest premium in its history. \\ e call attention to Mayor Fagitn’s repeated efforts to obtain control of the Street and Water Department, for his own political advantage, persisted in against the will of the people, expressed at the polls. We charge tl'"t with mon eys available for months for the purpose of public improvements, the present ad ministration utterly neglected to make such improvements, and such of rliem as have been undertaken, have been deluytd until just prior to an election. Some instances of this neglect are. the delay in the construction of the Jackson Ave nue sewer, of the Horseshoe sewer, in the asphalting of Bergen avenue and of Bergen square, and the repaviug of New ark avenue. Wr.also call attention to the promises ami .jjAlieJes of Mayor -Fagan with refer ence to the New City Hospital. The de mand for a New Hospital was based upon the recognized facts that the pres ent structure was unnsnitary and inad equate to accommodate the fit. p.j tients. The Mayor in his first campaign promised, if elected, to immediately rem edy this condition of affairs. In fulfill ment, of that promise a contract has just been awarded, with his approval, for the construction of a new Hospital, which will not accommodate as many patients as tbe present structure, and which is in complete in that it does not--meet the re quirements of modern sanitary science Uj its appointments. The history of this Hospital project is such a series of scan dals. so familiar to all, that further com ment is unnecessary We denounce the action of the last Legislature in its treatment of the equal tax question, and we reaffirm the princi ples of the Democratic party, announced year after year iii its platforms, and con tended for by its representatives. Every advance toward the proper solution of tliis question has been the result of the most energetic contests led by Demo crats. from Leon Abiiett down to Charles C. Black. ’ We charge that the passage of the maximum tax rate law, known as the Hillery Act, passed by the last Legisla ture. was a fraud upon and an injustice to Jersey City, and was of benefit to no one but the railroad corporations. We are in favor -of more and better public school buildings, so hat every child may have a full day’s schooling in a well lighted, sanitary building. We commend the efforts of the Board of Street and Water Commissioners di- j . rented toward placing wires under ground and the removal of all unused poles and tracks from our streets We believe that every effort should be made for clean, well paved and well lighted streets. We favor all efforts to improve and beautify this city, and to facilitate pub lic travel on our streets, provided such improvements can be carried out with rdue regard to the interests of the tax payer, the expense to be incurred and the benefits to be derived therefrom We favor the establishment of small parks, breathing places and playgrounds for our people. We charge that during the last four lears. with absolute control, the present administration did not under- ! take these important projects and is now, merely for political effect, promising to undertake them. We call attention to the pernicious po litical activity of the city’s Law Depart ment. which renders it necessary to em ploy otltside counsel to attend to the legal business of the city. We also call attention to the present administration's incompetent treatment of the water problem, in the solution of which no visible progress lias been made. With the inauguration of busiues*= poli cies, by business men. in tlie city govern ment. this problem will be promptly and satisfactorily suived. and the large pay ments at present being made to the East Jersey Water Company for water rates and interest charges, will be saved to (.he people. We emphatically declare in favor of the policy of grunting public franchises for limited periods only, and ou terms adequately remunerative to the City. —,-—-________ The: strong eat Well, si pep well, look well.

The franchises heretofore granted in Jer iley City should be retaken as the law will permit, in order that they may be made the subject of readjustment as to the terms upon which they are held. We believe that in addition to the annual payments, such franchises should be granted noon express conditions that they he revocable unless they be so used as to primarily serve (be pnWic convenience. Ip accordance with this declaration we dpmand better street car service and a substantial reduction in the price of gas to all consumers. We believe that the city should, as rapidly as circumstances will permit, ae opire for its own use tire shore front of the Hackensack river. The normal de velopment of the city will be such that in: a few years the possession of thiy Shore front will be an absolute necessity if the city is to keep pace with the progress of its industrial interests which will require water shipping facilities. MERELY MENTIONED Amid the waving of small American flags and the enthusiastic cheers of 1,000 or more Democrats Archibald >1. Heurv stepped forward on the platform in Elks’ Hall last night to accept the nomination for Mayor that had been unanimously tendered him. For ten minutes the con vention was in an uproar. Mr. Henry could only- smile and bow in acknowl edgment of the ovation given him. It would have been useless for him to have attempted to say a word. The delegates had been waiting for such an opportunity to display their en thusiasm and nothing could have held them back. It was an old-time Demo cratic convention and boded ill for the Republicans. Not until the assembled Democrats had convinced Mr. Henry that he was destined to succeed Mark M. Fagan as Mayor was chairman James J. Murphy able to restore order so that the nominee could deliver his address of ac ceptance. The delegates could not con tain themselves. At frequent intervals during the speech they forced Mr. Henry to desist while' they let themselves out a link or two. And when he had finished they got on their feet and cheered again and again. Such scenes have seldom been witness ed in Democratic conventions. It was a spontaneous outburst of enthusiasm and of its genuineness there could be no doubt. If Mr. Henry was proud he had a right to be. Never was a political cam paign opened more auspiciously tor the local Democratic party and if Mr. Henry ; is not successful gt the polls he will be a surprised and disappointed man. While the Democrats were nominating the next Mayor at- Elks’ Hall, the Re publicans at Lincoln Hall, in another section of the city, were going through the formality* of making Mayor Mark M. Eagan their nominee for a third term. Compared with the Democratic conven tion the one held by the Republicans was a prayer meeting. There was something in the atmospnere that indicated a fu neral or a wake rather than a political convention. Friends of Mayor Fagan were gathered in groups in different parts of the hall just before the conTentiou was convened. They talked in whispers. It soon became known that the carefully prepared slate that had been arranged had slipped from the hands o| its cus todian and had been broken beyond re pair. This slate contained the names of Thomas P. Connolly and William George Nelson for Street and Water Commis sioners. Jacob Ringle, whose nomination had been urged by the Mayor, was found unavailable because of antagonisms lie had made, and Frederick Stulir, the choice of John Doseher and the Hudson City organization men, had been forced out of the race by Mayor Fagan ami his friends. Connolly and Nelson were finally decided upon by the administra tion forces. The Dicksonites, or organ ization Republicans, were not taken into the confidence of the Faganites. who fig ured that as they were in control of the convention there was no reason why t'.ey should ask any help in making up the ticket. ( When Connolly and Nelson learned how their selection had been made they j did not throw up ihe;r hats for joy. Rather rhey deplorel the action of the Faganites :n ignoring the organbaCcn. Realizing that under such conditions suc cess at the polls would he impossible, they promptly begged to be excused from being considered as candidates for the nomination. No amount of coaxing could induce them to change their minds. This is what gave the Lincoln Hall conven tion a funeral aspect. Difficulty was experienced in getting a new set of candidates. A number of men were approached, but they would not listen to the seductive words of Record. Fry and the others of the City Hall bunch who would willingly sacri fice the entire city and county ticket, if necessary, to elect Fagan. Finally in dispair they took up Andrew Knox, of the Eleventh Ward, and George Berry, of the Fourth Ward. “Talk about bossi$m,” said one of the delegates after the convention. “Record can give Lentz and Dickinson pointers I at the game. It’s-rule or ruin with him and in this cast* it is ruin for the Repub lican party in Jersey-City.” SUNDAY EXCURSION TO AT LANTIC CZTY. via Pennsylvania “Rail road September 24. $2.50 round trip.

RECORD NAMES MAYORJAGAN Corporation Counsel Asks the People to Re-elect the Executive in Spite of Bro ken Promises. G. 0. P. CITY CONVENTION alterations in the slate re sult in james McCarthy for alderman at large and GEORGE BERRY AND A. J. KNOX FOR THE S. & W. BOARD. At the Republican City Convention at Lincoln Hall last night, Counsellor Jas. McCarthy, a brother of President Me- j Carthy, of the Hudson County branch of j the S. P. C. A., who loomed up as a for midable candidate for the Mayor in op- j position to Mayor Fagan, was nominat ed as Alderman at Large. Counsellor McCarthy was with Fagan even when his brother opposed him. Mayor Fagan was, of course, renominated for a third term without opposition, and George Ber ry and Andrew J. Knox were nominated j as Street and Water Commissioners. In renominating Mayor Fagan, Cor poration Counsel George L. Record said j in part:— “It is my privilege, which I highly appreciate, to place before this conven tion as its sole candidate for the office of Mayor of Jersey City, the man who is already the choice of the whole peo ple of this community, the modest, sin cere and courageous gentleman, Mark M. Fagan. “The personal finalities which have so endeared him to you and to the public are too well known to need comment in this presence. He is entitled to rennminatlon before this polit- j ieal body, primarily because he has made j Republicanism synonymous with honest j and efficient public service and because he has thereby turned a Democratic stronghold info- a Republican city. He is entitled to re-election at the hands of this community for reasons so numerous that time does not permit me to enume rate them The record of his four years’ admin istration has never been equaled for ef ficiency. for economy, and forr vigorous and aggress’vn ficieu in the protection of the city’s interests and of its rights. In every department of the city govern ment tlie influence of his devotion to the public welfare has been reflected in achievements unparalleled in municipal 1islory. ‘•The progress of civilization is con tinually developing new problems which runs' lie faced and must be solved if progress is to continue. Every g.>n.-ra tion is confronted with its own difficul ties to be surmounted and its own abuses to be reformed. We live in a time when tlie last effects and influences of the terrible problem of human slavery, which absorbed ilie energies of the last genera tion. have practically faded away. Tlie enormous development of wealth in this country during the last twenty years, the marvelous increase iu human production due to inventive genius, the tremendous efficiency of the device of the corporation by which the savings of the many are pooled and administered in any productive enterprise, all these things j liave brought to our people mingied bene* fits ami dangers. It is becoming plain that the enor mous wealth piled up by a few indi viduals. is far beyond a fair compen sation for the services, however im portant which they have rendered as captains of industry or as rite heads of great corporations. It is becoming grad ually apparent that this tremendous de vice of the corporations is being so ad ministered as to unjustly and illegally add to the gains of a few enormous sums of money which equitably belong to the many. How to cure these evils, how to re form tlise aliases, how to effectually guard and limit the tremendous power of these aggregations of capital with out at the same time lessening their undoubted efficiency as an agent for the production and distribution of wealth, is a problem of tremendous mag nitude. If this problem is to be solved it must be after the American fashion.
