HE NEY’S MISTAKEN VOTE Surprise was expressed uot only by the Fagan Republicans, but the followers of '.Vi. Dickinson as well, when Maurice Heinoy at the recent Republican county convention voted with George I,. Record, and against Col. Dickinson on the nomi nation of Scott. Mr. Heiney has been busy ever since explaining. This it what he has to say of the matter:— "There has been an impression created rttat wt'hen - I opposed the nomination of Mr. Scott. I opposed the wishes of Col. Dickinson who desired the renomination of Mr. Scott, My vote and the votes of the majority of the delegates from the Eleventh were cast under the impression that they were agreeable t" Col. Diekiti ton. It was not until after the conven tion that we realized we had made a mis take. Hud I known at the time I an nounced the .sentiment of the Eleventh that the Colonel desired that Mr. Scott lliouId he re-nominated I would have jivon him every support possible. "I want it distinctly understood that when it comes to a show down between Col..Dickinson on one side and Mayor Pagan. Mr. . Record or any one else on ilieother side you can count upon me on !he Dickinson side of the fence.” SCOTT DEFIES RECORD. At present nil the political news and fcssxp centres around Mr, Record. He lot only assumes the responsibility of fleeting) Mayor Fagan, but he insists ipou dictating how the affairs of the Re Hibiican party should be conducted in :he county. There is one man at least for whom Hr. Record has no terrors. He is Robert Scott, Bayonne’s' Assemblyman. Mr. Scott has survived the attack made upon tint in the Republican-county conven •ion and in discussing Record’s effort to lefeat him for reuomina'tion be said:— "AH I have to say is that I wisli Ree ird would roast me some more. I think t would increase my majority. "People I have never known before fav* come upjto me and shaken hands lud assured me of their votes since Rec ir.i made that attack. I guess tile peo >'e know him here as they do at Trenton, fou can’t play to the galleries all the ■ ime without beiig found out. "Record will learn after a while, if he loes not know it now, that he isn’t the yhole Republican party aud that he eau mr compel everybody to get aboard of lis hot air band wagon.” -« The otrong eat well, sleep well, look well, ■he w-ak don’t.

ERIE ROAD IN THE TUNNEL PROJECT President Underwood Says He Cannot Speak Definite ly of the Financial Con nection But He Admits the Physical RAPID TRANSIT NOT IN IT M. It. M’ADOO MAXAOEK OF THE X. Y. & X. J. LINES SAYS Ills COMPANY MAS NOT JOINED IX TEltESTS WITH THE NEW BOIiE COMPANY. Much interest has been aroused in lo cal and New York financial circles over a report that the Erie Railroad will aid in financing the project to build a new tunnel under the North river, to be used by the Public Service Corporation in carrying passengers from here to the heart of New York. Those familiar with the situation arc skeptical about the report, how.e.er. because the Erie is spending large sums in other direc tions. Just before lie left n;i a Western trip yesterday, President Underwood of the Erie said:— "I don't know anything about the fi nancial end of it. All I know is that our road is to hsve a physical connection with the funnel, sc. fha on.' passengers may he transferred, to mid fr.cn it.” Nothing as to tii.' liitHiicia! interest the Erie might have in the tunnel-was men tioned in the statements given out by President McCarter, of the Public Ser vice. or John B. McDonald, yesterday. Mr. McDonald and S. L. F. Deyo, rep resenting the Interstate Tunnel Railway Company, which corporation is to build the tube that will connect the Public Service lines with those of the Metropol itan Company of New York, tiled an ap plication for a franchise, which was filed with the Rapid Transit Commission yes terday. It was for the Chambers street end of the work, and will be considered at the meeting of the commission next week. lien identified with railroad affairs say they believe the new tunnel plan is the most important move ever made by the Ityan interests against the Belmont sub way and the elevated interests in New York. RAPID TRANSIT KOT IN IT (Fpecial to “Th* Jersey City News.”) PATERSON. Sept. 23. 1905.—Officers of the New York and New Jersey Rapid Transit Company, which expects to build a high speed electric railway between here and the metropolis, declare there is no truth in the story that it is planned to take their corporation into the big combination, which the Interstate Tun nel Railway Companies of New York and New Jersey and tfie Public- Service Corporation have formed. The rumor had several origins, the principle of which was the ^act that the new companies, which are to connect Newark and New York, are to build a road similar to the one to be built by the New York and North Jersey corporation. II. R. UcAdoo. manager of the New York and North Jersey Rapid Transit Onipany, said:— “We have not allied our interests with any other company, although the sug gestion has been made by outside par ties. We intend to build a tunnel at Forty-second street, so you see our in terests would be dissimilar. Of course, no one can tell what will be dolie in the future. As fur ns I know none of our heavy stockholders or officers are con nected in any way with the big com bine.” -♦ G0L6Y MEN ASK RECOUNT (Special to ‘‘The Jersey City News.") NEWARK. Sept. 23. 190i—Applica tion was m-ade yesterday by Chandler W. Riker and Benjamin M. Jones, rep resenting nineteen defeated candidates for the Republican County Committee, and one defeated candidate for the Re publican nomination for School Commis sioner. for a recount of the vote in cer tain districts and wards in the primar ies Tuesday of last week. The applications cover one district in the First Ward, all twelve of the dis tricts of the Thirteenth Ward, and one district in the First Ward of Bloomfield. The defeated Colby candidate for School Commissioner who asks for a re count is Julius C. Rauch, of the Thir teenth Wal'd, who was defeated on the face of the returns as testified to the County- Clerk by Edward C. George, the Lentz candidate, by the slim majority of three votes.

After Chair man Fry had offered Mr. Nelson and the latter had accepted the tender of. the nomination for Street and Water Commissioner, Mr. Record picked flaws in tlie prospective candidate’s political record, and even while Mr. Nelson wa» receiving the congratulations of his friends as the sluted candidate he was being forced off the ticket. To no one was tlie turning down of Mr. Nelson more of a surprise- t uiu himself. He bad every reason for believing that his nanle Would he presented to the convention. lie was shrieked and mortified when he found he had been shoved aside to gratify Mr. Record's whim. j Jacob Ringle, loo. Was a disappointed lha'ri: Although the people did not rise in tlieir might as Mayor Fagan liad com manded them to do, and urge Mr. Kin gle's nomination, he felt reasonably cer tain that lie would be one of tlit choices of the convention. He had consented to allow the use ot his name. At the last minute, without any explanation, he was given the same treatment as was accorded Mr. .Nelson. George I,. Record made it plain to everybody that >be was bossing tlie convention and that he would brook do interference. J*he Dickinson Wing of the party did UOJ, cut aai ict-.in the coil vent idii. Co!. Dickinson, knowing that Record was in command, did not attend. His follow ers, who , occupied seats as delegates, were noGeonsultetl about tbe make up of the ticket. Record prepared the slate and forced it through. Andrew Knox has been a persistent opponent of the organization in the Hudson City section and if Mr. Record had in mind tShe hu miliatioit of Col. Dickinson when he put his name on the ticket he certainly ac complished his purpose. Few of the Y delegates, jjaew. .ttnjud~^xer. Jbeud-At George M. Berry, of the Fourth Ward, Mr. Record's other nominee for Street and Water commissioner. Mr. Berry’s personal friends .were saying yesterday that they liad always believed him to be a democrat. Knox and Berry were selected not because of their popularity or availabil ity, but because they could be trusted by Record, and would be part of the Fagan machine should they by as y chance happen to oe elected. Record's dictatorial manner offended many Repub licans, and the whole slate came mighty near going to smash. It was only, after much persuasion that James McCarthy consented to stand for the nomination for President of the Board of Aldermen. He had made up his mind to refuse to allow his name to ue presented to the conven tion and even after Chairman Fry had induced him to reconsider his intention he was loath to take the nouiiuatiou. He realized that no party could be suc cessful milder conditions such as .obtained. Here was a man..decrying bosslsm in public and himself forcing ou the con vention mete whom the:delegates did not know or did not want for candidates. Talk about political bosses, neither Carl Lentz or Coi Dickinson are in it with Record, the captain of the “Three Mus keteers.” Although Record assumed control of the Republican City Convention and forced the (delegates to accept his slate whether they liked it or not. it does not follow that he has succeeded in depos ing Samuel I). Dickinson as the party lender Only in the event of Mayor Fa gan’s re-election can he accomplish his purpose to supplant the Colonel. Rec ord is ambitious to be the head of the Republican party in .Jersey City, believ ing that it would be a stepping stone to the leadership of the party in the State. The success of Colby in Newark and Mayor Fagan’s re-election here would mean the realization of his hopes. Col. Dickinson. Major Lentz and the other State leaders would be relegated to the rear. _______ In his speech presenting Mayor Fa gan's name to the convention. Mr. Record put on the gush so thick that m*any of the delegates expressed their disgust. As 'compared to Fagan, to Mr. Record’s mind, Theodore Roosevelt hi a pigmy.. Fagan loom* hjgh over the heads of all the great men of the State and Nation. 1 According to Record. If Jersey City's Mayor had been a member of the recent Peace Commission, the differences be tween Japan and Russia would .have been settled without the formality of a .coufwesce. Great man is Fagan, WILL ITBE LENTZ Speculation Is Rife As to Whether Or Not the Ma jor Will Direct the Colby Senatorial Campaign. • JOINT COMMITTEE PROPOSED i _ ' COLBY MEN WHO THINK THE MAJOR’S MANAGEMENT WOULD j COMPROMISE THE REFORM i ERS SUGGEST A SUBSTITUTE. (Special to “The Jersey City News. “) ( NEWARK, Sept. 23, 1905.—Differ j enees of opinion are said to have arisen ■ among tlie leaders of the Republican ! Committee for Limited Franchises and j Equal Taxation as to who shall direct tlie coming campaign for the legislative and county ticket. Some of the most ae | five members favor the appointment of ' a committee of five, of which Major Carl | Lentz, chairman of tlie Republican coun ty committee, shall be chairmau, and | shall have one other of the county com mittee who opposed tlie Colby movement during the recent primary, aud three members of the county committee who | are known to be in complete accord with ; Colby and the principles upon which he made his successful tight, as colleagues. Those who favor this plan say that they maintained during the contest for the Senatorial nomination that they were loyal Republicans and ihai should they i surcFPd in nominating Colby diey would expect the regular county eouiuittfee and its proper officers to carry on tlie cam paign aud elect tlie candidate of tlie par ty. They also believe that by placing Major Lentz in charge of the campaign much will be done to wipe out any hard feeling which may have been engendered by what was said o» both sides in the excitement of a fierce political fight. Opposed to this plan are several influ ential men identified with the Colby movement, who do not think that under all the circumstances Major Lentz is the Tiran to direct the campaign in which Mr. Colby is the candidate for State Senator. They say that the Major entertains something like this conviction himself, and refer in substantiation of their state ment to the conversation which took place between Mr. Colby and the Major at Republican headquarters on the morn ing following the primaries. This was to the effect that the Major asked Mr. Colby if ht- thought that he (the Major) should resign the chairman ship of the county committee, in view of, the fact that. Colby had defeated him in the primary fight, and when Mr. Colby said that, frankly* he thought the Major should get. out. the latter replied, emphat ically. that he wouldn't. It seems that that was not till that was said during that conversation. A man who liear'j about it is responsible .for the statement that after the Major had snapped out. “Well. I won’t.” he went on to say that he did not mean to ask Mr. Colby if he thought that he should resign from the chairmanship of the comity comm’ttee. but from the active management of the campaign, flo is also alleged' to have asked Mr. Colby if he did not think that, aftpr the way in which he scored Colby at the ftloomfield meeting and tiie way in which Colby had spoken of him at vari ous times during the contest, he should let some title else manage the canvass for * the eodnty ticket, or words to that effect. Mr. Colby, it is said, replied that, looking at the matter in that light, he thought it would be better if some one else direct the campaign. Those of the Colby leaders who adhere to this view of the case are said to favor the appoint ment of a committee of six members of the county committee, three of whom are to be recognized Colby men and three Lentz supporters, the chairman to be some in whose integrity and fairness both sides have explicit confidence. Rich ard C. .Teukinson has been mentioned in this connection, but whether he would consider the proposition is not known. Certain influential Colby men also say that if their people permitted Major Lent? to conduct the campaign it would practically put him at the head of their movement, and be in effect an eudorse mnt of the major and of his methods and opinions on public questions, so that in the future, should the limited fran chises and equal taxation people desire to coutest the control of the county com mittee with the major ttae.r could not con sistently oppose him. Mr. Colby, Alderman Martin and oth er's of the Colby leaders declined to dis cuss or comment upon the rumors that are in circulation. -« SUNDAY EXCURSION TO AT LANTIC CITY. via Pennsylvania Railroad September 24. $2.50 round trip.

FOOTBALL TEAMS Condition of the Various Kickers Who Will Com pete for Honors in the Coming Season. PRINCETON HARD AT WORK COLUMBIA AND YALE FAR FROM SANGUINE — CORNE L L A X D HARVARD ENTHUSIASTIC LIGHT WORK AT PENN. Princeton started active football work on Thursday with a large squad of veter ans. So far none of the Tigers’ fresh man stars have reported. Unlike the other universities. Princeton never calls otit her first-year men until after the uni versity opens, which will be next week. It is understood, however, that the Princeton authorities have not been asleep while their rivals have been scour ing the country, and that they will pre sent some new men that will help to win back the Tigers’ prestige. Of the men who reported on Thursday the principal veterans were Captain Cooney. Duteher. Dillon and Tooker for the line: Tenney. King, Rulon- Miller and McCormick tor the lack field. In addition to these men there were many substitutes wiio prom ise to develop well this year. Princeton will be the first of the P.i; Six to play a regularly scheduled game. The Tigers will play Yijlanova on Sep tember 2f>. whereas ihe other universities do not begin operations until the Satur day following. The reason for Prince ton’s early start is the early date on which they have to close their season, this being a week earlier than Harvard a. }a!e, and nearly two Weeks eulier than Pennsylvania and Cornell. Coach Morley started football practice for Columbia the first of the week, but the prospects for the New Yorkers are far from bright. Indeed, it looks as though Columbia will have one of the poorest teams this year. The veterans with which Morley is now working are Captain Thorpe. Eeceverria, Post. Fish er, Carter and Helmriek. With hardly an exception all the others are new men, and few of these are of much promise. Columbia is badly handicapped by the fact that it is largely a post-graduate school to which few athletes ar> at tracted. Gloomy tales continue to come from Yale regarding this year's eleven. The tiling jvhicli Yale professes to be worried about is tlie lack of promising school boys from which to recruit her eleven. The Elis started work on Wednesday with a small squad of veterans and freshmen which has been increasing daily. By the middle of the coming week the ' squad will be nearly complete. Yale’s weakness this year, after consid ering the material which lias already re ported. is to tie in the line. Of the 1904 line A'enl is missing at one end. Hogan and Blooamrsfrom both tackles, Kinney from one.guard and Uotubuek from centre. But even witli Yale’s loss of veterans in the line it will lie stronger than is gen erally believed by outsiders. In tlie back field Yale lias no cause for worry. Hutchinson and Stevenson, tlie substitute quarterbacks, are both on hand, while Hoyt and Morse can play the halfbacks acceptably. • Finn, who i substituted at fullback or Owslev. is nl- i I most as good as the man Yale has lust. Among the 1904 substitutes much is ex pected of Veeder. who but for an injury would certainly have made one of tlie halfback positions. It is quite likely that he will he tried out at end this year in view of the dearth of candidates fqr this position. Although Yale may not have as large a squad of men this year as formerly, college men should not be mis led into thinking that Y'ale is to be weak. On the contrary, the Elis ought to have as strong an eleven as last year if they are not visited by too much ill luck. Cornell men are unable to restrain their enthusiasm over the prospects of 1005. as indicated by the material which reported to Coach Warner during the week. And while this enthusiasm may have to be modified as the season ad vances. there is certainly good reason for Cornell's hope that at last she is to have an eleven whieh will be capable of placing Cornell to the fore on the grid iron as her other team did in their re spective branches last year. The Itha cans are putting forth strenuous ef forts to make good in football this sea son, and they think that if they fail this year, their case is hopeless. With the exception of the two or three men of the 1904 squad, whom Cornell has lost through graduation or other causes, Coach Warper now has at work nearly all of Cornell’s; avaitahU, What has impressed the visitors most with the Ithacans' material lias been the size and ability of the men. With the addition of several of the new giant-s who art* t*> enter this year, Cornell will have an extraordinarily heavy team this fall. If the Cornell line can live up to the expectations it has created, the hack field made up of such vet erans as Rice. Gibson, Halliday, Bird and Cox, will take care of itself. In fact, it was Cornell’s weak line which . failed to support a really strong back j field, which caused all the trouble in IU04. With this weakness corrected Cornell may expert to be be fully 25 per cent, stronger than last year, and as a resit. Penn, Princeton and Colum iia, who walked roughshod over the Ithacans last year, will have to put their teams through a special campaign to meet the Red and White I At Harvard Coach Reid took hold of | things with that indefatigable energy and discipline which mode him famous when he coached the crimson in 1901. Reid’s duties officially began last spring, when he conducted a few weeks bf preliminary practice for the benefit of the fat men who were r.ot candidates for any of the other athletic teams. Last fall Harvard had half a dozen young giants on her team averaging from 225 to 250 pounds. : One of the strongest criticisms urged , against the 1904 eleven was that it eon ! tained too many useless fat men and not enough men with speed, endurance and fighting power. | Iteid told the men last spring that he omrhl not use any candidates with super-’ ! Huong weight this fall. Knowing Rein's j character for discipline, his linemen set themselves to work during the summer I I and when they reported last week with ; hardly an exception, they had taken off | from fifteen to twenty-five pounds of use i less weight. This was especially note? ! in the cases of Brill. Parker. Squires and i White, who were the most conspicuous | heavyweights last year. These have all reported greatly reduced in weight, and consequently better prepared for the rig ors of the coming season. Light work will be the programme at Pennsylvania Tor the .present week. Al though the first game with Lehigh will be played September 30. only one week from Saturday, the coaches will not per mit any scrimmages before Saturday, it they do then. The candidates are natur ally somewhat soft at present and before any strenuous practice is indulged in they must he given time to strengthen then endurance to stand the knocks they are sure to get in scrimmages. t The programme for this week will be punting, quarterback kicks, running down down the field under punts and other ru dimentary work, such as was taken on Friday and Saturday. The tackling dum my has been suspended and the squad will probably be given some instruction in the proper way to tackle during the week. Penn's presenlt coaching staff has upset | all former precedents this year in a man ner to cause considerable talk in the in tercollegiate world. Instead of being the first of the “Big Six" to start formal practice, as has been the case for a num ber of years, the Red and Blue this fall was actually the last to get under way. -♦ JERSEY EDUCATORS (Special to "The Jersey City News.”) FREEHOLD. Sent. 23. 1905.—Irwin Shepard, of Winona. Miss., secretary of ! the National Educational Association. ; has reported to John Enright, superin- j tendeut of schools of Monmouth County | and State director of the association for ! this State, that New Jersey, as the re sult of the meeting in Asbury Park and Ocean Grove July 3-7. has secured an advance membership in the association of 980. This already makes the total Jer sey membership for this year 1.326, which is exceeded by only three other States—New York. Ohio and Illinois.

FOLLOWING IN HIS STEPS HARDSHIPS THE FAITHFUL EN» DURE IN THEIR EFFORTS T9 GO THE WAT ©F THE GROSS. Mr. H. R. Hilton has received an* other letter from his friend, Jacob Eli* ahu, who heads a religious movement i£r Jerusalem. It follows;— ‘•Tour very kind letter of the 27th ult., inclosing clipping of the papers yott kindly sent, have reached safely and £ wish to thank you for them. "M e are having an Austrian Pilgrim* age in the city now; they number abeutl 400. \\ e had a visit from an Austriaa>< who said it had been the desire ef hi* life to visit this city and to follow the A ia Dolorosa (Way of the Cross). Ho told how indulgences were meted out to the Pilgrims'on payment. “These pilgrimages are increasing from1 year to year. We have such an annual one from France called “Pilgrimage d* Penitence,’’ when several hundred t» gether come. Usually these have a large? cross, measuring about 16 feet, which* they carry around with them and then*' place in some church in Europe. Be side these, there are Herman. Bavaria?^ Greek. Russian. Spanish aud lastly. Jew% ish organized pilgrimages. ’* I he Russians seem most devour and ate very generous to the poor. They save during a life time to he able some day to ooiBe here. They endure a 11 kinds of hardships, walk sometimes for six months, that they may get here, and go on foot throughout the country, being thankful for bread and tea: in some cases tney have been known to be so moved by the priest's story of the needs of the Church at some reputed or traditionally historical site, that they have given the last farthing they hmj and could no*, return home. The Government (Russian) has now taken means to prevent the re* currence of such things: on landing they are required to deposit enough for their return journey. "The Russian Government has exten sive premises and buildings—one of the landmarks of the city—where all these are freely housed. Most of the other pilgrims that come are better-to-do. “We had a young boy with us to learn English, from the east of the Jordan, from Essait, the ancient Rarnoth Gilead, which recalls the wonderful history of the King's Ohabt. .Tehoshaphat and of. the Prophet Micaiah. who foretold that the King would be deceived into going thither in order to perish. “As Abraham Sukkar was returning home for the vacation he took two of our boys over for a visit. “You, of course, are aware that on the East of the Jordan up to a few years ago. there were no stationary set tled inhabitants, the country was roved over by nomadic Bedouin tribes, the de scendants of Ishmaei ‘whose hand wae against every man and every man's hand against them.’ Since the Turko-Russia* war of 1S77. when certain districts ia the Black Sea were ceded to Russia, th# Circassians living there preferred Turk ish rule and were giveu the districts oa the East of the Jordan—Gerasli. AuimoB (Philadelphia), Wady Seir. etc. Sine# their arrival the country Jias been much more settled. Our boys visited these1 parts and bring glowing accounts of th# ancient Roman and Maccabean remains. “With thanks for your kindness and every good wish. “Yours sincerely. “JACOB ELIAHT7."
