The Newark Evening News, last night, tried to arsroo that because the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad is said to have bought the Raritan River Rail road and contemplates running a ferry from its South Amboy terminus to Tottenville to connect with the Rapid Transit, that there is no need of a bridge across the sound at this point. We would like to state for the benefit of our learned contemporary that a ferry from South Amboy to Totten ville has about as much to do with the contemplated bridge as the deep ening of the channel in Oheesequake | creek has to do with purifying the t Passaic. In conclusion the News states: "Now that there is a bridge morn or less completed across the bay between x the Amboys, the necessity for two Hk oonneotions with Tottenville, one by bridge and another by ferry is not imperative." §■ ^J^^ently not knowing that there is iw^MH^^fcrrvAMf'ween Perth Amboy and Tottenville which was established long before the Newnrk Evening News was ever thought of, that paper would have Perth Amboy people cross tne new Raritan river bridge to South Amboy, make a tour around through the oountry, a mile or two and finally fetch up at the shore again in order to take the South Amboy terry to Tottenville. Next summer that New ark editor should come down for a day’s fishing on Raritan bav and then to he will not only see what a great thing that bridge would be, but will also learn that for a Perth Amboy man to go to South Amboy in order to cross to Tottenville would be about the same as for a Newark man to go to Elisabeth in order to get to Jersey City. b, __ It now seems as though the voting maohines have come to stay whether 11 or no. The Newarx authorities have taken steps to insure the devices ., against being fired.—Newark Evening News. According to the communication read at the council meeting last night, it looks as if the same thing would have to be done here. Chanoery Clerk Stokes has now praotioally acknowledged David Baird ) as the Republican leador of South Jersey and has declared in favor of him being one of the “big four” at the Chicago convention in Jnne along with Senators Koan and Dryden and Governor Murphy. While this seems to settle Baird’s position all right, it rather mystifies the North Jersey lead ership and leaves the State leadership a complete blank. Judging from recent events, how ever, it would appear that Senator Kean is being fitted to wear the late Senator Sewell’s shoes. The demo cratic victory in Union connty Inst fall has tended more to strengthen the senior senator's position in the State than weaken it. Not only has the de feat centered the entire attention of the State upon him and aroused his friends in his behalf,.but it has aroused the sentor himself nnd the way both the northern and southern counties are lining up in his support for an other term at Washington singles him out from all the others as the one man to whom the rest look for sugges tions. Then, too, Senator Kean, not being an Essex county man, places him in a more favorable light. Senator Kean is destined to he State lender and next year, when he repairs the damages done in Union, his star will be fixed. Baird can lead South Jersey and Stokes can be candidate for gov ernor, but Kean will be the daddy of them all. EDITORIAL COMMENT. Former Senator Strong, of Middle sex countv, must have been represent ing his persoual sentiment when he introduced nnd had passed by the Leg islature a law providing for imprison ment at hard labor, with ball and chain attachments, for tramps arres tod in New Jersey. The Middlesex Freeholders have procured the hobbles, but no committing magistrate has vet paid any attention to the new law, which negloot;inducod Justice Fort to charge the grand jury to investigate whether the authorities are doin g their duty. There iB little use of try ing to rid the State of the tramp nuis ance if no heed is given by the Just ices to the laws passed to secure that done.—Trenton Times. t DRIVEN TO IT. Polities tlse Only H'hlnjr lie Could do At Because lie Didn’t Fit In Anywhere Fine. The politician was reminiscent and some one took advantage of the fact ” to ask him a pertinent question, re lates Elliott Flower, In the Brooklyn Eagle. "How did you happen to go Into polities?” was the question. I “Frankly,” was the reply, “I was driven to It.” "Driven to It?” >» "Yes. You see, I wasn't cut out for a profession. I didn’t have the neces sary educational advantages, and 1 didn't take kindly to study, anyway." e> "You might have tried a clerkship?” “Well, T didh’t seem to fit in there very well, either. There seemed to be about six applicants for one job, and my qualifications weren't sufficient to 9 ’ get me the job under those circum stances. There were always others b ..who could write better or figure bet ter.” “Why not a trade, then?” "That Is what I ought to have tackled, but I couldn’t.” "Why not?” “My father didn’t have the wisdom io join a labor union and when it eanie to learning a trade the unions limited the number and placed restrictions on those that barred me out. They wouldn’t let me learn a trade—said there were too many new trades al ready.” "And then?" "Why politics was all that there was left.” “Well, that explains one thing, any way.” “What?” “The number of men In politics who ought to be busy with a hammer or a pick.” CnuNM of Hrnilnchf. With a little self-examination it is not a difficult thing to trace the cause of headaches, which arc so numerous. These are overstudy, overwork Indoors, want of fresh air in sleeping rooms. In sufficient exercise, too much or too little rood, neglect of the bath, besides many other causes which might be put more couci3ely aB neglect of the ordinary rules of health. Irregular meals, work ind study Indoors, sitting in an un natural position are other causes of this very prevalent ailment. Instead of making your stomach a receptacle for jrugs, try to find out the cause of your teadache, and then it will be an easv matter to cure it—by preventing it.— American Queen. _ * Hilliii niiftrfjatftrtllfti'i-f 'iir i DIPLOMATSAT WORK Powers Strive to Prevent War With Colombia. BOGOTA MUST EXPECT SO SYMPATHY Ilcyea Haa Bren Tnltl That Hln Gov ernment Cannot Delimit on Euro lienu Powers to Interfere, hi They Alt Want the I'unal, WASHINGTON, Dec. 22-Diplomat lc pressure is being brought to beai on Colombia by several European pow ers to prevent war between that coun try and the United States. The Hist step in tills direction already has been taken by several foreign powers through their representatives here, who have informed General Kafael Reyes of the futility of any attempt by Co lombia to retake Panama, declaring that It will result only in precipitating the Bogota government into war with the United States, and have said to him that the result of such a catastro phe Colombia herself must realize. If this is not sufficient the representatives of those countries at Bogota will bo in structed to inform President Marro qtila that Colombia can expect uo sym pathy from the European powers in any move she may make on Pauaiua. which would inevitably involve her in war with the United State's. The members of the diplomatic corps have been informed by General Reyes himself that lie fears lie can with diffi culty check his people much longer. General Reyes is not talking for publi cation, hut to several European ambas sadors he has confided ids fears with frankness and lias said that he is doing everything in his power to prevent an outbreak before the conclusion of Ids mission, but that, although Ids inliu ence with the army Is considerable, he is so fur away that it is difficult for him to make this felt as strongly as if he were on the ground and in com mand. Realization of the true situation, it Is said, will not prevent General Reyes from calling on the United States for a reference to The Hague of several of the questions at issue. It is on this point that European diplomats have told General Reyes that it is expecting too much to expect tlds government to submit any phase of tiie Panama mat ter to The Hague. Several ambassa dors have earnestly advised the gen eral to impress on Ills people the fact that Europe wants the isthmian canal and that Colombia can expect no sym pathy from that quarter. It lias fur ther been pointed out by those diplo mats that the proffered sympathy of several South American republics can avail Colombia nothing In the event of wav with the United States. It is hoped that tiie receipt of tills news in Bogota will do much to calm tiie feeling there and hold the Colom bians in check until General Reyes can return. Great Britain and tiie Netherlands have taken pains to let General Reyes know indirectly that Colombia reckons without her host if she interprets their delay in recognizing tiie republic of Panama as an evidence of their sympa thy for Colombia or as due to other than a desire to protect the interests of their financiers, who are the largest holders of government bonds. It is stdd here to be unlikely that our naval commanders in isthmian waters will go to tiie extent of dislodging tiie Co lombian force, numbering 100 men, that lias landed on tiie island of Pines. On tlds point, however, tiie policy of the government lias not been delinitely decided. A SMALL ARMY. Colombian Troop* Land on InIiiihI In l*n on inn nlun Territory. COLON, Dec. 22.—About 100 Colom bian troops have landed at the island of Pines, northwest of Cape Tiburn, which is situated at tiie western en trance of tiie gulf of Darien.
