WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1903. - ---- I W Next Tuesday the voters of the State will have an opportunity to express their opinion of the proposed amend ments to the State constitution. As has been pointed out the amendments relate entirely to the judiciary and it is probable that, after the most com plete explanation, a majority of the people will have little interest in the election. Regarding Perth Amboy, however, the mere fact that the case compelling the Pennsylvania railroad to put safety gates at Washington street and Hall avenue crossings, has been carried to the higher courts where it is blocked owing to the rush of business, shows there is something altogether wrong with the present manner of dealing out justice. The amendments to be voted upon next Tuesday is to relieve this pressure therefore it is to the interest of every voter in this vicinity to go to the polls next week and vote in favor of the change. Justice Fort yesterday announced that did not deem it necessary to int a commission to investigate ty affairs. He stated that he hail ined carefully every item of the freeholders’ accounts and had found nothing to warrant the appointment. pointad.that gros girregularities exist ed, suchthat Justice Fort himself could not have failed to notice when he made his careful examination. If there was nothing wrong in what lie saw, therefore, the alleged irregulari ties cannot amount to much, if there are any at all. It would seem that the sooner the whole matter was dropped the better it would be for the county. From almost every city comes the report of an unusually large enroll ment of scholars in the public schools. This should be encouraging to Presi dent Roosevelt and help to allay his fears of race suicide. Atlantic City now feels proud. The city council there has cut down the tax rate one cent and has agreed to a paid tire department. The rate is now $1.47. EDITORIAL COMMENT. It is said that the negro pays his poll tax willingly while the most strenuous objector is the native born white American. The former evident ly appreciates his right of suffrage, even though he so often abuses it, while the other takes this privilege too much as a matter of course, and so seldom considers it valuable.— Elizabeth Times. Such a statement on the part of Justice Fort should be sufficient for every tax payer in the county. If the justice is unable to find anything wrong in the financial affairs after the careful scrutiny he has given them, theie really seems no reason for appointing the aocountant to go all over the books again. It was evidently the idea of those citizens who signed the petition, re questing that the commission beap ** — — 7 Gettysburg Battlefield and Washington.

A Wonderful Invention. It is interesting to note that fortunes are frcqueutly made by the invention of articles of minor importance. Many of the most popular devices are those design ed to benefit the people and meet popular conditions, and one of the most iuterest iug of these that has ever been invented is the Dr- White Electric Comb, patented Jan. 1, ‘99. These wonderful combs pos itively cure dandruff, hair falling out, sick and nervous headaches, and wlrer used in connection with Dr. White’s Electric Ilair Brush are positively guar anteed to make straight hair curly in 2? days’ time. Thousands of these electri< oombs have been sold in various cities o the Union, and the demand is constantly increasing. Our agents are rapidly be coming rich selling these combs.

The Filipinos appear to be divided sharply into two classes, which, after all, are really one. One class professes loy alty. Some of this class are really as loyal as they can be; others are buenos aombres during the day, only to foster rebellion at night. The other class is in open defiance of all our conceptions of law and order. Of the two classes, the fatter is Dy iar less uaugeruus. iu mr past year there have been perhaps a hundred convictions of individuals to death and life imprisonment for open re bellion; a few days ago one judge passed sentences of deatli and various terms of duress, from life imprisonment down to a year or so, on 20 of the outlaws. But of those receiving the heavier punish ments, several were of the outwardly loyal class, men who secretly fomented insurrection and ladronism.—Arthur Stanley Riggs, in Atlantic. Railroad to Galilee. Reports have been received stating that the Ottoman government has bought the English concession for a railroad from Haifa to Damascus. This railroad, a narrow gauge line, will ex tend through Galilee to Mzerib, by way of Beisan, connecting at Mzerib with the Damascus-Mecca line. At the begin ning of April last five German civil engineers, employed by the Turkish government, arrived at Haifa and a monument was unveiled in commemo • ration of the start of the operations. In the middle of April the Damascus-Mec ca line had reached a point east of the ' Dead sea, and the consul believed that instead of going to the Hejjaz, includ , ing Medina and Mecca, it would take a i southwesterly direction to the gulf of , Akaba in the Red sea.

A report on seasickness in Zentralblatl fur innere Medicin may be condensed as follows: The rocking of the ship pn> duces a contraction of the arteries of th< head and therefore an acute anaemia o the brain. This acute local bloodlessnes: has as its consequence nausea and vomit ing. The strain of vomiting correcti this bloodlessness temporarily.. Thi vomiting is from impulses from the'braii and does not depend upon the condltioi of the stomach. Everything that tendi to increase the flow of blood to the brail ameliorates seasickness. There is, ii the first place, the horizontal posture then remedies that cause dilatation o the vessels of the brain. Among thes may be mentioned chloral hydrate which may he taken in doses of fiv t grains three or four times within a fe\ - hours, and amyliniantipyrin in not toi small doses appear to be of value. 1 A l.ittle Dumm.
