McDermott. It was said that George L. Record. Cornorntiim Counsel of Jersey Citv. had a hand in framing the platform, and the Hudson Democarts are confident that both Mr. Recor and other friends of Mayor Fa-gan in Jersey City can be depended upon to support Black if the Republican convention next week does not make a satisfactory declaration on the equal taxation question. F:arly in the day an attempt was made by the South Jersey derogates to prevent Mr. Black's nomination and to name in his stead Senator Robert Hudspeth, of Hudson county. But when the Hud son delegates arrived tTiev would stand for no one but Mr. Black. Mr. Black was to have been placed in nomination bv Senator Hudspeth, of Hudson county, but at the last moment Mr. Hudspeth gave way to Jacob Hen- drickson, of Mount Holly. Mr. Hen- drickson was a classmate of Mr. Black at Princeton, and he made a ringing speech in behalf of his "old college hum." calling him "the son of Burling-on, the adopted son of Hudson and the greatest living exponent of equal tax ation." Mr. Hudspeth seconded the nomination. The nomination of Mr. Black was against the wishes and ndvtce of former United States Senator James Smith, Jr., and the latter took little or no part in the campaign, having announced that be will be kept in the West from now until almost election time by business in connection with the United States Shipbuilding Trust, of which he is the receiver. The retirement from the fight of Mr. Smith is looked upon as a derided victory for Roliert Davis, the Hudson county leader, who from the beginning has been tor Black.

"iiimm xi. rncc win lurnisli the bail. The case is now in the same shape as if the editor had been indicted for contempt. He will be tried before the couri on the charges. Richard V. Lindabury made his first appearance in the case to-day and mov ed to dismiss the rule to show cn...sp He held that the' law gives the court no power to attach for contempt where me ciiuciMii is upon a past and completed act of the court. He cited several oponums to bear out this contention. ' Mr. Lindabury said that whatever may be the fact in the case, whether the article is justifiable or not, it deals with an act of the court that is past. Mr. Lindabury read a number of nni.i ions of various courts of the country to bear out his contention and in commenting upon them, said that nothing that ne knows oi m the jurisprudence of this country or England in way conflicts wim mac view. Alan btrong replied that he had at first been astonished and then amazed when the lawyer had said that there was not an opposite decision in the world. He cited the Cheeseman case in New Jorsey, where the opinion had been HTiiien oy justice Dixon and held that it gave the court full authority in such cases as this one. He said that all of tne old authorities hold that such con tempt proceedings are proper when any articles nave neen printed having a ten dency to bring disrespect upon the court. He charged that Mr. Lindabury naa maue no adequate study ot the au thorities". He held that there were i number of opinions on the books holding the view which Mr. LiniTabury bad attacked. Mr. Strong quoted several cases to sustain his position that contempt may consist of criticism of a concluded case-He said that the present case was a peculiarly pointed one in this respect. The criticism in question declared that $75 had been fixed as the price of woman hood, and dealt with a crime which in some communities has led men to mob violence and lyncbings, even when they knew the courts were capable of punishing the offenders. It is n:y by confidence in the courts that mob violence can be checked, Mr. Strong declared. It is a serious matter, he declared, and o::r that merits severe punishment and an offender can be dealt with for contempt even though the transaction be passed sir. strong further said there was no purpose to punish an insult to the indi vidual. but to uphold and vindicate the authority and dignity of the court However, counsel said, even on the narrow ground that contempt applies only to criticism of a pending case, the defendant in this instance Is liable, because the Cooley case is not completed. the defendant was fined S7o, of which he pah' only $50, and is still liable to the court until the remaining $2,7 is paid Replying Mr. Lindabury averred that punishment tor contempt regarding completed case is unheard of He presented the matter simply as cold proposition of law and hoped that Judge Strong in deciding would so eon sider it, devoid of any personal feeling in the matter. Judge Strang's Statement-Judge Strong said: "The court is fully capable of separating the individual from the office and is not here for the purpose of punishing anyone for an individual attack. A pernicious publication has been put before the public, based upon misrepresentations, but I do not sit here to punish anyone, for any assault-on me as an individual. I sit here as a Judge of the County of Middlesex and I feel it my duty to protect that office from impairment. The question is is it to be an efficient office or is it to be a football? This proceeding Is the culmination of fourteen years of this sort of criticism. There lias been an appeal to the people to denounce this court and I believe there is no question about the true ground of the right of punishment by the court. It is to protect the judiciary as a live, efficient instrumentality. Abram Van Buskirk has sold his handsome eight-room cottage at 271 Sea'mnn street, to Cornelius I. Tunison. son of Edward Tunison. the grocer, of Burnet street. Mr. Tunison will take possession on October 1. The deed was passed yesterday. CITY RULERS DENOUNCED Republican Platform Charges Democrats With Laxity in Government. DECLARES COMMON COUNCIL WAS STOLEN FOR THE BENEFIT OF "GRASPING OFFICEHOLDERS" PARKER AND STILL-MAN NAMED. The Republican city convention which nominated W. Frank Parker for City Collector and Otto O. Still derman-at-large yesterday afternoon ajso adopted a vigorous platform calling for a different city government and charging the Democrats with having stolen the city. The convention was called to order lw City Chairman S. D. W. Ownes. John H. Watson was elected temporary chair man and Harry Crouch temporary sec rctary. Mr. Watson named committees i the city officials make a Ions term con year tne immense sum of $14,000 was taken from the people for the running ol the street department, and the voters of New Brunswick should cemnnd a full statement of what has been done with such an amount, the largest appropriation ever made for the same purpose. We will renew our pledge to the people in the event of success, to completely reorganize the Police Department. The Chief of Police should be made responsible to the Mayor and itoard of Aldermen, and the members of the force should be responsible to (he Chief. There is great need for reform in this branch of the city government, arid the expenditure of thirteen thousand dollars is sufficient to guarantee excellent protection for the city. With a police committee disposed to be lenient with the members of the police force the organization is fast becoming demoraJized and a reproach to the law abiding citizens. It is a condition of affairs which calls for immediate action at the polls. We call the attention of the voters to the fact that when the lighting company offered to make a ct-ntract for a term of years it was rejected by the Democratic light committee, and the cost of lighting the city thereby increased materially. The city is now-paying annually the sum of $21,000, whereas had a contract been made tor a. longer term of years a great reduction in the cost might have been made. In other and neighboring cities the lighting of the city costs much less because es follows: Rules H. Raymond Groves. Edward Palmer, C. P. Stevenson. Permanent Organization C. R. Dev. Louis Robbing and Henry U. Banker. Credentials Georirc M. Holman. Theo. dore Whitlock and David Bartholomew. Resolutions Halscv H. Consrer. Henry Rastall, Charles Jackson. After a recess of ten minutes the com mittee reported. The temporary organization was made permanent, all credentials approved and rules adopted. Nominations being called for H. Raymond Groves, of the First Ward, said that his ward had intended to name him for City Collector, but he had withdrawn in the interests of harmony and asked the Fifth Ward's permission to name for it a gentleman for that office of the highest ability and character, W. Frank Parker. The nomination was seconded by the other wards and was made unanimous. For Alderman -at-large Halsey H. Conger, of the First Ward, nominated Otto O. Stillman and this nomination was also made unanimous. Freeholder Jackson got in his little joke by moving that a committee go to St. Louis and bring Mr. Stillman before the convention. The chair appointed Mr. Jackson, T. H. Rastall and James McCallum on that cmnmittee- They didn't reach St. Louis, but found Mr. Parker and brought him forward. He made a. short speech, thanking the convention for his nomination and heartily commending President Rosevelt. benator Jackson responded to a call for a speech and urged that especial ef; forts be made this fall to carry the city of New Brunswick for the Republican ticket. Chairman Watson spoke a word for the xoung Mens Republican Club asking all citizens interested in good government to enroll with it. After this the convention adjourned. A Vigorous Platform The resolutions adopted by the con- ention were as follows: In convention assembled the Republi cans of New Brunswick indorse the plat forms adopted by the national and county conventions, and the nominations of each are heartily approved and active work is hereby pledged in behalt ot all the candidates on the Kepublican ticket. .We denounce in severe terms the un scrupulous action of the Democratic politicians in stealing the city administra tion for the second time within fifteen ears, and thus thwarting the will of the people as expressed at the ballot box. Such utter disregard for the rights of the people merits the condemnation of lovers of good, honest government nd can only be rebuked by an ovcr- hchiiingly majority at the polls for the epublican ticket. It was the will of the people that the city should have been turned over to the full control of le Republican party, but by juggling ith the election returns this was pre- ented, and the horde of grasping office holders was kept in control for another ear, and the beneficiaries ot the usurp-tion of power have .fat tened themselves at the expense of the taxpayers. It is me they were turned out and lair- inded and competent officials put in. their places. Under Democratic rule the expenses of the city government have doubled. The appropriation for the fiscal year ending j April 1, 1885, when the Democrats took the reins of government- was $48,40!M6 with a population of 18,258, a cost of $2.65 iter capita. The budget for the fiscal year ending April 1, 1904 amounted to $112,300.00: with a popu lation of -22,000, at a liberal estimate and the cost jumped to $5.10 per capita. Every voter, who thinks, knows what this means, especially if he is a tenant. High taxes ami high water rates mean hii'h rents. For the past six years the Democratic management of city affairs has cost the people $601,050.00 without the interest on the bonded debt or the annual fixed charges. To sum it up these figures mean that we are livin; under the most expensive city govern ment in the country, and it is for the voters to decide how long this condition of affairs shall continue. We favor a reduction in the water rates. The present prices for water are excessive as compared with other cities in the State. Recently Kutus Jiiodgeit, Mayor of Long Branch, published a statement in New York paper, which reflects upon the city of New Brunswick with reference to the cost of water, in list of 36 places for the same service it was shown that our water rate was excessive, in I'lamnem tne ijin operated by a private company and the rate is $18; in East Orange $15; Newark, $16.75; in Woodbridge, Metuchen and Carteret, $18; in Perth Amboy, with a plant that pumps every gallon used by steam, $16; while in this city the rate is $21, even with a large portion oi uie supply pumped liy an ovcrnow- xi . evident that some reduction in the water rate should be made. We favor the nppointment of a Street Commissioner who will devote his entire time to the interest of the city, and not work to his own interests, principally, and serve the city incidentally. This tract, and this is what should be done here in the interest of economy. We pledge our active support to the nominees of this convention for the various city offices, and urge upon all citizens w'ho want to see a wrong made right to go to the polls in each ward in the city and vote for the Republican nominees for Aldermen and place the control of the city affairs entirely in the hands of the Republican party. We have a cood. conscientious and able chief executive in the person of William S. Mvers. but bis hands are tied" in so lnnnv wa.vs. that many reforms wine mi"ht other wjse be made are stifled in Common Council, or have to be wuu held. We, urcre the active Republican!
