Time To Do Something
What is Perth Amboy going to do about commission form, of gov
ernment 1
Over a week has now passed since the petitions, signed by more
than the required number of citizens, were filed with the city clerk
asking that the matter be put to the vote of the people. Apparently
that is as far as it has gone.
This matter cannot be ignored. The law says: " I pon such peti
tion or request in writing being tiled with the city clerk, the said city
clerk shall forthwith call an election to be held on the third Tues
day following the date of the filing of such petition with him, and
shall cause public notice of the time and place of holding the same
to be given by advertisement, signed by himself, and set up in at
least twenty public places in such cities and published in at least one
newspaper, printed and published in such city, and if no newspaper
is printed or published in such city, then a newspaper circulated
therein, for at least six days previous to the time of such election.''
But the publication of a notice of such an election by the city
clerk is a mere formality. The real question is whether or not any
effort is to be put forth to carry the proposition, now that it is be
fore the people.
This special election is going to cost the taxpayers of Perth Amboy
several thousand dollars. The money should not be wasted. Even
though the proposition should be defeated, the least we can expect
is a campaign of education to enlighten the people on the general
subject and lay the foundation for another try at some future time.
It has been the experience in most cities that it takes at least two
elections to put across the commission form of government. The first
time it is tried the idea is so new that the pcopLe are loath to make
the change at once. But the matter is laid before them in such a
clear and comprehensive manner during the first campaign that even
though the old system of government is continued, the people are
constantly drawing contrasts thereafter with the promises ruade
by those advocating the commission government, so that they are
ready to vote in favor of the change the next time they ha-ve-tllfij
opportunity. » _ - — »
,It ought not to betnpa&igiry for Perth Amboy to have two elec
tions to bri^if this change in the form of government. We
uj in ι ifffi, striking examples of the success of the commission
government in the different municipalities where it has been adopted
that there ought not to be any hesitancy on the part of the people
to adopt it here.
It is true that in some cities it has not been as great a success as
it might have been, but no city has been any worse off for the
change, and so many have been so greatly benefited that there is
every reason for a favorable vote in this city.
It may be said that the responsibility for bringing about a special
election on the question of commission form of government in Perth
Amboy at this time rests entirely upon Peter A. Peterson. It was
comparatively easy for one man to thus secure signatures on a peti
tion calling for an election, but it is quite another thing to conduct
an energetic campaign to carry the issue at the polls.
Having led the city up to this point and forced the election upon
the people, what does Mr. Peterson propose to do toward informing
the public on the matter and carrying the fight through to a logical
conclusion?
Who are his backers and with whom is he associated in this move
ment ?
wnue inc λ \ λλι.νι^ Λ£,ννί> is neartny m ravor of the commis
sion form of government for municipalities, and believes it would be
greatly to the advantage of Perth Amboy to adopt it, it holds no
brief for Mr. Peterson and it is in no way responsible for the issue
beiiifî brought before the public at this time. In fact, we rather re
-^rpf^that the matter has been so forced upon us when the interests
of the people are so greatly absorbed in the war, and particularly in
the midst pf a political campaign. If for no other reason than the
expense involved, we feel that the election should have been put off
until a more propitious tfaie.
However, it is here. The law says that it must be held, and it is
up to the people of Perth Amboy to give the matter the considera
tion it deserves. After aW, securing the necessary number of signa
ture» to the petition, while comparatively easy, is one of the most
disagreeable tasks to perform. Now that Mr. Peterson has aceom
plis'ied this ought not those favoring the change in government take
advantage of the situation and get behind the movement with full
energy and a determination to win?
The Trenton Times, in discussing the workings of the commission
form of government as applied to that city, where it has now been
in operation for six years, says:
"When Trenton was leading the fitfht, first for the enact
ment of commission government law by the legislature, and
subsequently for its adoption here, every political boss worth
while lined up solidly against the plan. The old machines of
Trenton were of a decent sort; the kind that were willing to
go as far as they could in the matter of providing good gov
ernment. It was not the bosses but the vicious log-rolling
system that the people of Trenton fought and fought to a
finish.
"There are no hidden powers nowadays in the municipal
affairs of Trenton; the only political bosses are the duly elect
ed commissioners, and they are keenly responsive to the
public will. Our government is genuinely non-partisan, con
ducted strictly in the interests of the taxpayers."
It might interest the people of Perth Amboy greatly to have some
one come up from Trenton and explain in detail the advantage that
the commission form of government has been to that city. We are
'lire that the people here could readily comprehend the improve
ment brousrht about, when compared to our present complicated and
irresponsible method. There are also men in Jersey City ready and
willing to sing the praises of the commission government as experi
er.ee there.
As lonii as the people of Perth Amboy are to be called upon to
vote on this question, and must bear the expense of a special election
ν hethn· they like it or not, the least that can be done is to put up
a campaign in order that the money will not have been spent in
vain.
Usually, in cities where the commission form of government is to
be put to a vote the matter is backed by an organized body of citi
cens eai rying mor» or less influence in the community, and a definite
plan is arranged for placing the matter squarely before the people.
In Perth Amboy, however, the agitation has been so much of a one
man affair that others hesiiate to interfere or to become prominently
ident:fiid with it. It remains to be seen how the issue is to be pre
sented.
Today We Celebrate
-- - 1 —— ■ r-i I
Anniversary of Jonathan Edwards,
Who Preadied a Literal Hell.
In these day» when a future abode
of tire and brimstone has become a
matter for jest and peer, and the
"consolation of hell" for our enemies
has lost its appeal, it is interesting
to compare a sermon of Jonathan
Edwards with the discourse you will
hear in the pulpit next Sunday. The
Kev. Jonathan wjw one of tne most
distinguished theologians of the eigh
teenth century. Today is the 214th
anniversary of his birth at East Wind
sor, Conn. He was a graduate and
tutor at Yale before he entered the
ministry as pastor of a church , at
Northampton, Mass. He died in 1758,
shortly after being appointed presi
dent of the College of New Jersey,
now Princeton University. The fol
lowing is an extract from one of his
famous sermons:
"1 entreat you to consider carefully
how great and awful a thing eternity
is. Do but consider what it is to
suffer extreme torment forever and
ever; to suffer it day and night, from
on© day to another, from one year to
ι another, from one age to another,
from one thousand age to another,
and so, adding age to age. and thous
ands to thousands, in pain, in wail
I ing and lamenting, groaning and
I shrieking and gnashing your teeth;
I with your souls full of dreadful
I grief and amazement, with your bo
I dies and every member full of rack
ing torture, without any possibility of
getting ease; without any possibility
of moving God to pity by your cries;
! without any possibility of Hiding
I yourself from him; without any possi
bility of diverting your thoughts from
your pain; without any possibility of
obtaining any mitigation or help or
change for the better any way. Do
but consider how dreadful despair will
be in such torment. How dismal it
will be, when you are under tl. .>e
racking torments, to know assuredly
that you never, never shall be deliver
ed from them; to have no hope; when
you shall wish that you might be
turned Into nothing, but shall have no
hope of it; when you shall wish that
you might be turned into a toad or
a serpent, but shall have no hope of
it; when you would rejoice if you
would but have any relief after you
shall have endured thes etorments
millions of ages, but shall have no
hopo of it; when after you shall, have
worn out the age of the sun, moon
and stars in your dolorious groans and
lamentations, without any rest day or
night or one minute's east, yet you
shall have no hope of ever being de
livered; when after you shall have
worn out a million (»f such ages, yot
you shall have no hope, but shall
know that you are not one whit near
er to the end of your torments; but
that still there are the samo groans,
the same shrieks, the same doleful
cries, incessantly to be made by you,
and that the smoke of your torment
shall still ascend up, forever and ever;
and that your souls, which shall have
been agitated by the wrath of God
all this while j'et will still exist to
bear more wrath; your bodies, whioh
shall have been burning anr roast
ing all this while In these glowing
flames, yet shall not have been con
sumed, but will remain to roast
through an eternity yet, which shall
not have been at all shortened by
what shall have been past."
To this hereafter, so luridly de
scribed. the Rev. Jonathan consigned
the bodies and souls of by far the
greater part of humanity, and de
clared that only an elect few could es
cape the wrath of a vengeful God.
BANKS REPORT MUCH INTEREST
Total in Newark Alone Is Nearly $12,
000,000—Excellent Showing Made
In First Loan Will Be Sur
passed, Say the Officials.
Newark, Oct. 5.—The quest for Lib
erty bond buyers Is on in earnest
throughout the State. Teams of can
vassers started on their rounds of the
various factories, stores and mills and
the work of organization of the sub
committees was about complete. Ear
ly reports which reached Chairman
Uzal H. McC'arter of the Liberty Loan
Committee in Newark indicated a
ready response to the government's
call.
While it was not believed at the
committee headquarters that there
would be much more results in the
way df subscriptions for a day or two
more, the various banks of the city
made informal reports that subscrip
tions were beginning to come in. It
was estimated that, in addition to the
$11,500,000 which made up the sub
scriptions of the Prudential Insurance
Company and the Mutual Benefit Life
Insurance Company, about $260,000 in
offers ranging from $50 to $1,000 had
been received.
Carl Egner, who conducted the "Fly
ing Squadron" of bond salesmen iti the
first campaign in this city, is again on
the job, but with a smaller staff of
salesmen. He declared that the enlist
ments for war had depleted the ranks
of the experts who had given such aid
in the first Liberty loan campaign.
Get $98,000,000 In District.
According to unofficial reports which
reached the local headquarters, the
Federal Reserve district, which in
cludes this city and the northern New
Jersey counties, had obtained returns
from the early work of the campaign
aggregating about $98,000,000. This,
it was said, represented the results of
three days' campaigning in the dis
trict.
Chairman McCarter announced that
the rate of interest that is to be
charged to employers who want to buy
bonds so that their employees might
purchase them on installments will be
the same as that which the Federal
Reserve Bank in Manhattan will exact
for the rediscounting that will be nec
essary. This probably will be 4 per
cent .the same rate as the new bonds
will bear.
Insufficiency of Fame.
Robert I. ou Is Stevenson, says the
Philad elphia Record, was not the only
celebrity who hail found fame rather
than substantial achievement. "X would

ton schooner and the coins to keep It
on. I know a little about fame now j
It's no good compared to a yacht."

THE HATRED STUNT
I do not bate the German crew as fiercely as I ought to do. I
know I ought to yip and roar, and kick some panels from tho
door, whene'er I hear a German namo. the symbol of a nation's
shame. But it Is vain to sit up late indulging In cheap brands of
hate: and if Γ hated, night and day, until a pair of slate gave way,
my iatine wouldn't help the right, or put a single foe to flight. I'd
rather show up good and strong, to help the Ked Cross causa
along, to send a bandage to the lad who lost a wing near Petro
grad, to buy. the surgeons lint and knives, that they may save some
heroes' lives—I'd rather do that sort of thing than hato from now
untit- nert-Bprtne·." I sometimes think I am too meek when friends
and neighbors rant and shriek, expressing hatred by the ton for
every German and his son. But when I hate for half an hour I
feel my stomach turning sour, my form Is bathed in clammy sweat,
and I must see the village vet.
