Now they say that Mr. Meeker's Anti-Spring Election bill has the element of revenge about it, and that it was put in for the purpose of getting square with Carl Lentz. Ever since Carl Lentz defeated Assemblyman Foote for Leader of the House because his candidacy was advocated by Charles X. Cod ding, a lieutenant of William Riker, the Major’s bitterest foe, Union has been very sore against the Essex Kaiser. They have been “laying low” for an oppor tunity to get a whack at him and in some degree at least retaliate upon him for all the misfortune he has brought upon them. It has been known for some time that the Anti-Spring Election bill has been a pet scheme with Major Lentz and that he is much set upon having it go into effect. He thinks it will greatly aid his party in keeping control of Essex. So Mr. Meeker, who will never be accused of seeing too far ahead, conceived the idea that if he introduced an Anti-Spring Election bill at this time, it would bring such opprobrium upon the measure that it would be killed for this session at least, and a severe blow of some kind or other would be inflicted upon Major Lentz. Perhaps there are some who do not exactly understand this reasoning of Mr. Meeker's; but Meeker does, and at this stage of the proceeding that is all that is necessary. Anyway the bill is a beauty. Drafted with all the grace and facility of ac complished amateurism, it manages to embody every fault that such a bill can have. It is quite appropriately fathered by Meeker Three Laws in Six Weeks. Three laws in six weeks is the proud record of the present Legislature—but the nature of these laws shows that the present Republican majority has the welfare of the dear people deeply at heart. The first is an act to protect planted and seeded oysters on lands lyiug un der the tidal waters of the Delaware River, Delaware Bay and Maurice River Cove and to regulate the taking of the same from said lands. If there is one thing above another dear to the heart of the average Jerseyman it is the Cape May salt, the Shrewsbury on the deep shell, the Mill Creek fry and the other varieties of the oyster which grow in the Delaware Bay and the waters adjacent thereto, and the Legislature in giving its attention to this absorbing subject to the ignoring of such trivial matters ns equal taxation, the Franchise Tax bill and measures for the abolition of food adulterations will be greatly appreciated by a grateful people. Law Xo. 2 of the session is an act to prevent the Democratic Aldermen of Elizabeth from making something like an equitable districting of that city; and Law Xo. 3 is a scheme to foist a member of the present Board of Freeholders of Essex upon that county as Superintendent of the County Hospital for the In sane. The circumstances surrounding this latter measure were so rank that even Foster M. Yoorhees could not bring himself to the point of signing it, but he let it become a law without his signature. Can anyone, after contemplating this astonishing record, doubt that the present Republican Legislature is strenuously endeavoring to legislate for the welfare of the State. It Is to Laugh. Mr. Erwin now has two ante-mortem statements and three photographs of Mr. ICellar, who is not going to die. Bathos on the Newspaper Questions. The Correspondents’ Club of New York, as a feature of its annual dinner, procured answers from a variety of persons to the question, “How can the in fluence of the press be increased.-’ A few of the replies are given in a morning paper. They vary from trite to silly, from weak to pompons; one is flippant and vulgar. The wisest and the weakest of them is that of John Hay. who says, “I do not consider myself competent to give advice on the subject.” The silliest and most pompous is that of William Jennings Bryan, who writes, “A principle is more important than a scoop.” Bishop Potter begs the question by saying, “By the education and elevation of its readers." Cardinal Gibbons, Wu Ting Fang and Comptroller Coler in slightly different phrase give the obvious advice, to stick to facts. Thomas A. Edison replies, “By publishing a fact now and then,” and he ought to be ashamed of the utterance. If De Wolf Hopper or Marshal P. Wilder had said it, the vulgar flippancy would be forgiven as professional. From Mr. Edison one hardly expects a reckless lie launched for no better motive than the construction of a cheap epigram. There are few men living who are so indebted to the newspapers for wealth and fame as Thomas A. Edison. Their generous recognition of his work saved him years of sorrow and toil when he was a poor devil of a telegraph operator straggling for a hearing at the door of capital, and it ill becomes him now to requite his benefactors with a variety stage gibe. As an aggregation, the answers arc about as useful ns those which one or two enterprising clergymen have secured to questions as to bow the influence of the churches might l>e extended. They convey no light whatever. Those of them that are of any value at all are so obvious as not to have been worth saying. It looks as if the newspaper men would have to solve the problems of their owu trade by their own thought. The rest of the world has no wisdom at their disposal. Ne sutor ultra crepidam. Kansas and the King. For once a legislature of the State of Kansas seems to lie in the right. In reply to condolences on the death of Queen Victoria, some fool secretary of the King of England scut to the State Legislature the following missive:— “BUCKINGHAM PALACE. “The private secretary is commanded to convey the thanks of the King for the expressions of loyalty and sympathy contained in the message which you forwarded to his majesty on Jan 31, 1901.” Of course it is a mere blunder, hut, all the same, the Legislature was right in refusing to accept the message or spread it upon the records of the session. Such a blunder is intolerable in diplomacy. No doubt when the episode comes to the knowledge of the British Ambassador he will have the mistake rectified and the sympathy of Kansas asknowledged in proper form. Lawlessness Breeds Lawlessness. The conduct of the Wichita saloon element in wrecking a church in retali ation for Mrs. Nation's high jinks is highly reprehensible, quite as reprehensible as Mrs. Nation * own performances. It is, however, more natural seeing that great provocation had been given for the outrage, and the precedent of lawless ness liyi] already been established. II is to be hoped that it will arouse the Kansas authorities to suppress all its riotous classes. Justice to Sampson. President McKinley has done a long delayed act o£ justice in requesting the Senate to properly recognize the services of Rear Admiral Sampson and the other heroes who fought under his direction at Santiago, almost three years ago. It has been a disgrace to the country that no official action in their behalf has been taken by Congress. It is, however, apparent that the same selfish molives, which have made possible this great injustice, are to be still further exerted. The friends of Ad miral Schley have served notice on the Republican Senators that, unless their man be given equal honors with Admiral Sampson, they will hold up the Presi dent’s recommendations. One who has closely examined the merits of this controversy finds it difficult to see where the Schley men find any foundation for the claim that to their man and not to Sampson belongs the credit of the destruction of Cervera’s fleet. To most men the evidence of the brave men who fought in that memorable battle will be conclusive and admit of no doubt. On the day that the State of New Jersey, in grateful recognition of Admiral Sampson's services, presented him with a sword, a majority of the commanders of the vessel? which took part in that fight gathered in the Assembly Chamber at Trenton. Admiral Philip, now dead, arose and cried out, “Three cheers for Admiral Sampson, our Commander in-Chief at Santiago.” Immediately all that concourse of naval heroes sprang to their feet and sent up such a shout as has seldom been heard in the historic old State House. The men who fought that battle and won such renown for American seamanship know who led them and whose example, fortitude and genius made possible the great victory. Every fair minded citizen, not swayed by local prejudice and jealousy, knows that Admiral Sampson was the Com mander in that fight and wants Congress to recognize him and not Schley. It will be a lasting disgrace if these ill-advised friends of Admiral Schley are able to longer delay justice to Admiral Sampson. AMUSEMENTS. Academy of Music. Nothing in the way of sensational real istic episodes has ever been shown to equal the now Towers & Potter new and realistically revived presentation of “The Still Alarm,” with Harry Lacy in his original part of Jack Manly, which will be the attraction at the above theatre next week. This popular and highly ad mired play has been materially improved since it was originally produced. A new act has been introduced, the dramatic sit uation heightened and a number of strik ing innovations added. As is well known, the piece abounds in exciting scenes and thrilling incidents. The fire scene, whieh occurs in the third . act. is an inspiring climax and one, it is said, to work an audience up to the highest pitch of ex citement, so realistically are the effects, and so quickly and unexpectly given that the audience becomes almost bewildered. Aside from the new mechanical appurten ances the play Itself is one of the best, the strain of melodrama being relieved by an abundance of clean and bright com edy, having action, interest and charac ter. One of the recorded facts may be added in comment, no American play has ever created such a furore as did the "Still Alarm,” with Harry Lacy, on its run of 150 nights at the Princess Theatre in London. The supporting players in this much talked of production contain such players as Frank C. Bangs, Lynn Pratt, Herbert St. John Brenon. Charles K. French, John F. Ryan, Belle Goal. Elizabeth Baker. Emma Brennen, Ince and a host of others. There will be matinees on Wednesday and Saturday and Washington's Birthday. The pretsentation of this attraction at the Academy is in keeping with Mr. Hender son’s well known policy of “the best that can be obtained for the money,” and should result in crowded houses during the engagement. Manhattan Theatre. The new Clyde Fitch play. “Lovers’ Lane,” at the Manhattan, proves to be one of the sensational successes of the New York season. Fitch has outdone himself in this charming play of simple village life. Better drawn types of char acter were never put upon the stage. They are typical of the average small town, exaggerated just enough for laugh able satire. The women’s purity brigade, the school mistress, the “opery house” manager, the liberal minded clergyman and his proteges from orphanage and poor house, the Choir singers and all the rest of them are immensely diverting. A dozen popular players have scored indi vidual hits. Some wonderful stage pic tures are presented, notably two in an apple orchard. It is hard to choose be tween the sombre autumnal scene and the merrier, brighter one of May, when every bough is bursting into bloom with blossoms so real that one can almost smell them. “Lovers’ Lane” is jamming the Manhattan. It will prove another “ 'Way Down East ” for William A. Brady, who has given it such a perfect presentation.

Gaddis are the members of the board. The members of Provisional Company E, who are to take part in the inaugura tion ceremonies next month, drilled last evening under Captain Gibbs and Lieu tenants Sorenson and Isles. Sergeant Charles A. Woolsey of Company B, has been appointed color sergeant. Shall Anglo-Americans Inheait the Earth? If we take a map of the world, or bet ter yet, a globe, and trace the isothermal lines, we find the largest expanse of fine territory in the tenjperate climate in North America, and consisting of the United States and the southern half of Canada. The second in size lies in China; the third in central Europe; the fourth in Australia; the fifth in the southern ex tremity of South America; and the sixth in South Africa. This comprises practical ly all of the world that is suitable for the habitation of an active and energetic people. Of this territory more than one half is in the undisputed possession of En glish speaking Anglo-Americans. Of the other portions of the temperate zone, the only non-English speaking part yet open for considerable development is in South America, but the southern end of South America is the most Isolated section of the world. In the frigid and zemi-frigid portions Russia holds the largest sec tion, while England holds the second in size. Within the tropics, England eontolrs in India and Egypt the richest and Aost populous portions. It will thus be seen that, go where we' will over the face of the earth, the English speaking people have, in geographical position, an incom parable advantage over any other people. —C. L. Redfteld, in "The Engineering Magazine" for February, BETTER THAN YEARS OF DOCTORING. Only Paine s Celery Compound Did Her Any Lasting Good. j It can be truthfully said of no other remedy in the world what is so often said of Paine's celery compound, that in no single instance has it failed to benefit, and benefit permanently—and there's the point 'that no sufferer should lose sight o£. The whole stock-in-trade of the ordi nary, plausible-sounding, but wholly ir responsible remedies is 'to bring about the appearance of health, to cover up symp toms and to stave off break-downs, ma- . king the permanent cure all the more dif- j ficult. Other remedies, because they can effect ' no lasting cure, do harm. The same words that fairly and accur ately describe Paine’s celery compound, a remedy that every day proves its worth, are boldly used to exploit concoctions that can by no possibility do anything but harm. More brains and ingenuity is ex pended on the label and wrapper than on what is put into the bottles. Persons who try this remedy and that, in the foolish hope that they may hit on the right one by chance, and at any rate it can do them no harm, should know that they are doing their system incalculable mischief and putting off the day of complete recovery by such experimenting. Paine's celery compound must not be judged by the standard of any of these superficial medicines. It is a great, re sponsible, scientific discovery, singular ly unlike any remedial agent that ever aimed to effect a similar purpose—to make people well. It is not an ordinary remedy. The results from its use have been so extraordinary and so gratifying that busy men and women have gone out of 'their way to send letters of thanks and to allow their names to vouch for every statement they have made in praise of it. The following acknowledgment from Mrs. Geo. F. Rouse of Green Bay, Wis., of the surprising benefit she has received from the use of Paine's celery compound is too valuable to be withheld from the public. Mrs. Rouse’s honest opinion of ■th'a great remedy cannot be mistaken by any one who reads her letter. Green Bay, Wis., March 3, 1900. Wells, Richardson & Co., Gentlemen:—For the past ten years I have been troubled with neuralgia of the stomach and dizziness in the head. I have doctored with many doctors, but found no relief until a friend of mine recommended to me your Paine's celery compound, and 1 found it a great cure for my sickness. Tours very truly, Mrs. Geo. E. Rouse. Public opinion in. the large cities throughout the country shows the reli ance that hard-worked, often overworked men and women have come to place Upon Paine's celery compound. Nothing demoralize.3 the health sooner or more completely than even the occas ional loss of sleep. Paine's celery com pound gets the brain out of this danger ous habit of sleeplessness. It feeds the nervous tissues all over the body, and does not iet the nutrition of these deli cate parts get low enough to permit of in somnia. One of the earliest evidences of the final success of this great nerve and brain invigorator in curing neuralgia, de bility, rheumatism, headaches and indi gestion due to insufficient nerve force, is the joyous feeling of returning strength of mind and body, cheerfulness and. ‘‘well being” that takes the place of the old, tired, languid, morbid, melancholy con dition. If you are "played out,” to use a for cible strec-t phrase, can't digest, can’t sleep, can’t work, and have lost courage, it is your nervous system that is “played out.” Try Paine’s celery compound and see how soon you give up brooding over your health and how soon you forget you ever had nerves that could possibly ache. The dismal failures of other remedies must not prevent one from taking the remedy that is always successful. Paine’s ceiery compound has driven sickness from thousands of homes. TO AMELIA E.
