SATURDAY, DECEMBE~uT UNITED STATES SENATORS. It is probable that no senatorial election haB attracted more public in terest both in and outRide this state than the contest now on for the seat which John F. Dryden occupies in the upper house of congress at Washing ton. Two things bring this matter prominently before the public. One Is that the people are becoming thor oughly aroused at the way the gov ernment is being stolen from them by j the large moneyed interests and cor- : porations. The other Is that the evil lies in the United States senate,' the members of which are not elected by the people. is true that In about one-ihird §HPlBlii< stales there is a law win ■KH1 people al the general eleeiimi, HHHiiity liner preference and lie ■HMEislature, wlch alone lias the un |r to elect does not dare change tin1, .•rdict of the people. New Jersey, j nowevqfr. is not in this class and tli ■ j MPlDPtion nl* IllliUul Stlnlnu uoii’ilnr is wholly In the hands of Hie state legislature. There arc many things the people want, hut It has become evident that they cannot be secured until different men occupy the seats in the United StaV"s senate. Senator Dryden is rec ognized as a corporation man. He stands with those who favor giving the peoplo ail they want except when corporations are hit. The Philadelphia Record, quoting from the New York Sun, discusses the senatorial situation generally, as follows; The leading men in the house of representatives do not come from the great cities. Politics In Philadelphia and New York and Chicago and St. Louis is controlled by rings or ma chines, and they only nominate me diocrities, because men of real abil ity will not serve as the mere dum mies of a boss. The leading men of the senate rarely come from the great slates. These states $ro dominated by polit ical machines, which elect the bosses » themselves or men named by them. When Thomas Platt Was the boss of New York he had himself elected and later had Chauncey, Dcpew elected. The New York Sun says: Did the people send Platt lf> the senate? Did they send Depew? Have they sent any one to the senate in a quarter of a century? Roscoe Conk ling? Not a bit; and he, at best, was only a Bhallow intellectual Impostor whose memory is negligible. Neither Platt nor Conkling contrib uted one stroke of work to the con duct of the government or the cause of legislature.

The Sun usks: , Is the man of repute and accom plishment, the man of civic pride and patriotic spirit, the gentleman and tlie scholar, to be debarred forever from serving this people in the sen ate of the United States? Has it finally come to pass that the seats ot', Clinton und Marcy shall be filled only by mountebanks and bawds? That Is. exactly what government by bosses and machines comes to. The people may at any time destroy these, and put their own representa tives in power, and then they call again see great men in congress. The bosses are not great men In a gov ernmental sense, and their dummies are still smaller. But that is what the straight party voler, who always supports the organization, is bound to give us. New Jersey’s history is not com plete without Perth Amboy. A pic ture of the old Westminster, the pride of the city, should be shown at the Jamestown exposition without fail. New Jersey has a prominent place in our country's history and Perth Amboy played a prominent part In making it so. There should be a trolley line across the Raritan river bridge as soon as the steel spans are in place, it Is demanded by 4 0,.000 people and the public in general want it. The bridge is of Tittle use to the average citizen if there is no trolley line across It. By the way, have you been talk ing Perth Amboy lately Now is the time to do it. Talk Perth Amboy ev ery day in the year. It is a good sub ject to dwell upon. EDITORIAL COMMENT.

Life has been so nearly counter feited in recent experiments that it is almost impossible to detect any difference between the forms manu factured in the chemist’s laboratory and the actual organisms of life, ac cording to Dr. Alfred Gradenwitz, whose article in the November Tech nical World Magazine, entitled "Life Artificially Counterfeited,” presents a very able resume of what biologists have recently been able to accom plish towards producing life by ar tificial means. He describes the ex periments of Dr. Stadelmann, who, by the action of electricity on cer tain chemical compounds, has pro duced many curious forms ' which closely resemble organic structures. Photographs of these forms are re produced with the article. Dr. Grad enwitz not only tells of the results which Dr. Stadelmann has accom plished, hue describes how he came to discover the process, and tells oth er interesting stprles aoout scien tists in their search for the answer to the great question which has puz zled man from the beginning of time —-can life be produced artificially?

The city man sojourning at Kineo, grown tired of I he ridiculous fashion of donning evening clothes for din ner in a backwoods hotel, fancies he would like to strike Into the woods and "roiigt it” for a while. Where upon lie hires a guide, with whom all the arrangements are naturally left—the buying of provisions and supplies, the selection of the route, etc.—and paddles away in a canoe to camp out. By a happy chance they reach the comfortable farmhouse on (’hecuncook lake the first afternoon, where, since there* will be ^10 mos quitoes to bother, and every comfort uf home to be had, t»e guide suggests Ihey put up for the night.. The next morning it is a little rohgh on the lake, perhaps; so they wait until if ter dinner for the water to smooth enough to paddle across. Dinner at the farmhouse! In the afternoon hoy proceed leisurely and, by anotli >r happy coincidence, reach the com fortable cabin at Mud Pond at about mndown, where they put up for the iilgnt. «Arier a ween ui uus son oi 'camping out,” the sportsman, being guided from one comfortable camp to another, returns to Klneo, presents his unusued supplies and $20 or $30 worth of fishing tackle to the guide.
