The “one fatal blunder” of the New !
'Idea, It is now declared, was the candi
dacy of George L. Record for United
States Senator. In point of fact, uieiv
■ «hould have been no New Idea but for
George L. Record. The elimination of
Record would have been like giving the
play “Hamlet” with the title roie left ;
out. In vugar parlance, he was “the
whole shooting match.”
Record creaG-J the New Idea out of
the crude materials he found iu Hudson
and Essex counties. He started out as
the salaried officer of the Jersey City
municipality in quest of -new muuici
pal revenues, a mission that was com
mendable enough, and when he saw the
situation grow he changed his apparent
character and became a reformer and
then, -with inflated ambition, a candidate
fur the United Staes Senate.
Etrom start to finish. Record1 was the
substance ondapirit god soul of the New
Idea. He borrowed* for k ail the princi
ples he could’ find, whether embodied in
existing laws or not; he wrote its litera
ture, coined its speeches and made its
organization. To him dependency look
ed men who obtained credit for his ideas
and even for the speeches that his type
writers- turned- out- in- such- abundant
measure. As “Hamlet” is the play of
Hamlet, so was Record* the New Idea.
They eould’nt be separated’.
Record is eliminated and the play is
ended. Even the applauding Democrat
ic newespnpers are conscious of that. The
substancf, the spirit and the soul of the’
New Idea are resolved’ back into the
original character of the Corporation'
Counsel of Jersey City, and let us hope
that the duties of that important office
will now be attended* to with more assi
duity than they have been for the loot
six mouths.—Newark Advertiser.

made in railroading better shown: than
in the service over the Lake Shore
Railway.. A traveler over this great
line is really as comfortable as he could
be in his own home. No ciub or hole
in the land cut® poeriSilo provide for
his every wilfc with any greater care
In the famous Lake Shore Dining Cites
