MONDAY. JUNE 25. 1900.
Governor Stokes lias signed the :
i
amendment to the Teachers’ retirement
fund, but so far from settling tUe' contro
versy over the new law, it has pricipi
tared a test in the courts says the New
ark “Evening News.” Teachers in Pat
erson bar* joined with those in Hobo- ■
ken and have sought legal advise upon
the new act and upon the best way to
test the question of its constitutionally.
Just what course will be pursued has
not been made public, but there is no
doubt that a case will be made up at the
the earliest opportunity.
These teachers who oppose the act
passed by the Legislature last winter,
take aaeouiagement from the attorney
general’s opinion, and also from the
Governor's memorandum of approval
The former said the bill was “quite j
complicated and nol altogether clear.”
but not "so plainly unconstitutional as
to justify the Governor in vetoing it on
that ground." .Just how plainly uncon
tutional a bill imp: be to warrant a
veto the nlroruey-general did not say,
but the Governor explained that one of
his reasons for signing the bill was "the ]
assurance of the committee on legisla
tion of the New Jersey State T. aehers’ |
Association that they will join in an ef
I
fort next year to correct, any defect that,
may be found in the law.”
The new act is to be attacked on the
ground that it is nncoustitulionai be
cause it taxes the teachers without their
consent and without seeming, to the
most of them any benefits, present or
prospective. The provision compelling
an teachers to pay a percentage of their
salaries into tile fund- is, it is claimed,
taking private property for public use
without just compensation. Upon this
point, it wtll be recalled-, the attorney
general rendered no opinion whatever
so that it is really an open question
which may well be taken to the courts.
?ut the most serious question of all is
whether the teachers want the fund or
not. Thus far no: more than half of
feiem have joined, and the light that is

It is alleged1 that the rioting in Bia
lystofc was begun by the Jews them
selves: that, they had thrown a bomb at
a procession of Christians. This would
i
[be more credible were it not tiiai the
[police in other cities have foe ad narra
tives of this kind a convenient excitant
for the riots which it is their duty to
suppress. Not for two thousand’ years
has t been the custom of the Jews to
prosecute wars, for that such names w ill
end in defeat for themselves is as cer
tain as the rising of the sun; not that
their cause lacks right, but they lack
numbers and influence with governments
As a people they stand for peace. “Suf
franee is the badge of all their tribe. ’
But there are limits to endurance, and
strange as it may appear, it is our own
country rather than Russia that is like
ly to feel the effect of the long series of
outrage's to which the Jewish race has
been subjected. For w-e are destined to
receive millions of the Jews from east
Europe. Indeed our own city will
presently contain a matter of a million.
As a result of the failure of law in Rus
sia to protect them, not a few of these
people hold- notions which at least ap
proximate anarchy, and their intellect
ual keenness makes tbo~e tenets more
dangerous than similar ideas engrafted
on the merely rude of our subterranean
populace. Any form of government and
no form of government must be wel
comed by a people who have been ex
posed for centuries to the abuse of a
powerful sect that, in Europe and
America, virtually controls governments.
Hence we find that a growing and dan
gerous class is arising on the East
Side, that is expressing in its advocacy
of violence the ancient and deep-seated
grudge against their oppressors not in
enmity to Russia but in enmity to all
social organization, especially as it is
expressed in law.
A more genial environment, a more
just administration, more liberal op
portunities for education and thrift,
absolute freedom of worship and opin
ion. the moral support of a million of
their own people in this country, will
naturally have an effect of relaxing
hostility to established government,
The sons and daughters of immigrant
Jews differ in no essentials of conduct,
of enterprise, of patriotism, from the
descendants of older settlers; l»u't w*

belligerents and malcontent* of the
Goldman and Beckman type, sine a

crimination.
Anarchy is destructive, not con
structive; socialism is constructive of
certain benefits and destructive of
liberty; but both these cults, as pro
tests against the existing order, ap
peal to those who have been unable to
make their way to freedom and com
petence, or who have met with denials
of social and industrial equality. An
archy is also a matter of city living;
that is, of throngs, where the fact of
multitude emphasizes class distinctions
and where compacting injures health j
and lessens opportunity. Anarchy j

until the last minute aud perhaps not

these machine methods of managing leg
islation do not provide public buildings
where they are most needed, but chiefly
as a bribe or a reward to those congress
men who can be thus induced to vote
for legislation that the people of their
districts are often opposed' to and that
President Roosevelt is in the game with
the machine politicians.
Probably one of the results of the
State 'legislation last winter will be the
dissolution of the Boards of Proprietors
of East and West Jersey, which hare
been in existence ever since the begin
ings of colonial government, says the
Newark “Daily Advertiser.”
A special' commission was appointed
last winter hy the Governor to investi
gate means for the State’s acquisition of
the claims of the West Jersey Proprie
tors. The object is to secure to the
State valuable maps and papers of re
cord of great historical value, now in the
possession of the Proprietary Council. A
conference of the commission and the
Proprietors was held at Budlington last
week and the prospects favors an ar
rangement by which for a consideration,
the Proprietors’ claims will be surrend
ered to the State. ,
These claims are shadowy, but the re
cords will be of value in the State arch
ives. If the East Jersey Proprietors
shall likewise be brought to an accom
modation some ancient lumber will be
cleared away and the. record® of the
State will be enriched by valuable his
torical documents.
AMUSEMENTS
Madison Square Rc of Garden
When the Madison Square Garden
Itoof opens its doors to-night, it can be
truthfully said that the “silly season.” in
New York theatricals is fully under- way
Already the other homes of girl* shows
which are so prevalent at this season of
the year are open, but it truthfully can
be said that the New Yorkers will have
no real roof garden until the beautifully
statute of Dianna is in full sway.
The Madison Square Garden Roof is
the real roof garden of New York.
There are no timbers or glass castings
between the audience and the sky, and
tile moon and the stars dead head their
way into the show every night.
This season the lanterns will sway
and the breezers will blow an accom
paniment on the Madison Snare Garden
Roof to the tuneful music of a new
musical frivolity which has been en
titled “Mnmzelie Champagne.” Just
ivihat this show is best can be judged
from its name. It is one of those bub
bling, effervescent, breezy tilings which
are always due in the good old summer
time. It consists cbiefiy of music.
comedy, girls and lingerie. It is stated’
*
by those critics who witnessed the open
ing performance for dress rehearsal
purposes in Atlantic City last Monday
night that there will not be sufficient
plot to distract the attention of the mem
bers of the audience from whatevei’
brand of refreshment they may have be
side their elbows.
“Mamzeile Champagne” will be pro
duced by Mr. Henry Pincus. who has
catered to the Madison Square Garden
Roof followers for several seasons, and)
it has been staged- under the direction of
Mr. Lionel Lawrence, who knows more
about producing “girl shows” than any
two other tnge managers of the Metro
polis. The company is one of exeep
polis. The company is one of (excep
tional strength. The principal ‘comedy
role is played by Mr. Harry Short, the
wall-known eccentric comedian, while
Mr. Edwin Fowler and Miss Maud Ful
ton are the chief assistant fun makers.
The title role of “Mfcwzell* Champagne”
i* being snug by Miss Viola De Costa,

As yet iliere is no, necessity to com
ment upon the merits of ‘‘Mamzelle
Champagne.” for white the reports from
Atlantic City are flattering, the show is
being whipped into shape at that sea
side resort and will doubtless be much
better when it ma^es its initial bow to
the New York public tonight. Then
we shall see whether or not “Matn
zelle Champagne” is all that its sponsors
claim for it.
Casino
A cab horse and his negro driver
cause no ued of amusement at a per
formance of the musical comedy. “The
Social Whirl,” at the Casino. New York,
one night last week. The finale of the
play is when Adele Richie, mounted, on
a handsome gray hunter, takes a five
rail fence in the centre of the stage.
The remainder of the cast is grouped'
on the veranda of the club house, on tops
of coaches and' on the lawn, cheering j
the race of which Miss Ritchie’s mount
is the winner. On the evening in ques
tion, the groom in charge of the actress's
horse did not arrive at the theatre in
time. When the music of this finale be
gun and there was no eigu of the miss
ing afainial, the manager of the house
niched into tlte street, unharnessed a
horse in a hansom cab despite the pro
tests of iiis dusky owner and led him
to the stage door of the Casino. At thq
moment when Miss Ritchie was ex
pected to raft* gallantly before the foot
lights on her dashing steed, she appeared
leading a big, raw-boned, spavined har
ness-marked brown nag, which had not
one attribute in keeping with the situa
tion. The merriment which spread over
the stage and into the auditorium was
turned into a veritable scream when the
negro .Tehu. in his frayed frock coat and'
batterer plug hat, marched down to the
footlights, half-amused and half-fright
ened bbut determined to keep an eye
on his horse. It was ofle of those un
expected incidents which give a touch
of amusement which the regular course
of procedure could never furnish.
Stage Notes
Vera Miohelena. who has won frame
in any parts of the country under the
management of John P. Slocum, has
been added to the Shubert forces. Miss
Miohelena this week becomes prima
donna of the new musical' comedy, “The
Tourists,” repicing Estelle Wentworth,
This handsome young woman has a
coloratura soprano voice of much rich
ness and flexibility, and the music of
Gustave Kerker which she will sing in
“The Tourists” is well adapted to show
is to advantage. Her acquisition gives
“The Tourists” a really unusual casts,
the other principals being Richard Gold

Wm. Pruette, George Schiller, Phil. II.
Ryle, W. H. Denny, Howard Cham

De Wolf Hopper and Eddie Foy, arm
in arm, last week, stepped1 up to the en
trance of the New York Casino, just be
fore a performance of “The Social
Whirl.” “We are actors,” they said to
Frank Hennessy, business manager of
the house for the Messrs. Shubert; “ and
we want to go in and see the show.”
“Who told you you were actors?”
inquired the skeptical Hennessy." What
can you do?”
“We can sing,” said Hopper.
“We can dianc-e,” said Foy.
“Well, prove it,” answered Hennessy,
“and I’ll let you in.” Whereupon the
two comedians, to the immense delight
of the side-walk audience that quickly
gathered, sang a duet from “The Jolly
Barons” and executed a few buck and
wing steps that would have taken the
cake on the Memphis levee. “You wiu.”
said Hennessy. “I guess I’ll have to
give you a buck seat. Pass two!” he
called out to the doorkeeper, and the
comedians went inside just in* time to
hear Charles J. Rooss sing his bigsong
hit, “Old Maurhattan.”
Henry Miller suddenly lias abandoned
