As soon as possible after Thursday. December 20. the city of Newark. N. J., will announce a bargain in city halls. That date marks the for mal opening: of the city's new* municipal build ing:, on which work has been in progress since August 15. 1902, and James E. Howell. chair man of the commission having' the work In hand, said yesterday that no time will be lost In at tempting to realize as much as possible on the old City Hall, which Is now, after continuous use for about forty years, to be sold at public auction and torn down. Before It was purchased for a municipal build ing: by the etly in IKU4. Newark's present City Hall was the old City Hotel Building. The city outgrew It twenty-live years ago. and when a new municipal building- was agreed upon It was decided to spare nothing to ruak»> it one of the finest in the land. Mr. HowelL who, as chairman of the commission in charge of the work, has examined many of the leading mu nicipal building!' In this country, is confident that Newark'c new City Hall will compare fa vorably with any he has P«*en The building, which ha* been erected according to plans of J. H. and Wilson Ely, occupies a prominent site In* Broad street, between Greene street on tho north and Franklin street on the south. It has a frontage on Broad street of 250 feet and a depth of 150 feet. The coat of the building itself is placed at between $1.fi00,000 and $1.3<X>.000. and the total cost, including site and furnishings, is given as 2.250.000. The money for the construction of the building was raised by Issuing bonds for $1,500,000 and by the sale of A'arious properties owned by the city and not in actual use. Whatever is realized through the sale of the old City Hall will be applied to the fund. The new building, which has four floors and ■ basement and sub-base ment, is of granite, with marble trimmings. It If surmounted by a huge, dome, and presents an Imposing appearance from the street. Though the interior finish of the hull-ling Is fine throughout, the show feature is the marble rotunda and vestibule. These are of fine Italian marble, and it is claimed that th* marble in the rotunda and vestibule is worth about £100.000. There is also said to bo about $3,000 worth of goldleaf in the decorations of the interior of th.- dome, high above the rotunda. The chief ornamental feature of the rotunda is a grand marble staircase, sweeping up on either side from the entrance to the floor above. The pub-basement if the building is glva^i up to machinery and heating apparatus. The base ment is to be occupied by the police headquar ters, the poor and alms department, the city dis pensary, office of the gas testers, superintendent of public works and two district courts. On the first floor are th*- board of works committee room and the offices of the controller, auditor. tax st»sesFni<MiT commission, tax receivers and clerk of arrears. On the second floor are the offices of the mayor, the common council, the law depart ment, the city clerk, the excise and license com mission, the sinking fund commissioners, the police commission executive offices, committee rooms and the board of works' executive offices and meeting rooms. On the third floor an* fire department head quarters, the office of the board of education, the city engineer, the city accountant, the assess ment commission and other offices. There will be ? few offices on the top floor, but the feature of that floor is a fine document room. In view of the fact that the city has only re cently erected a fine public library at a cost of yjJOO.OOO. and that the county is Just finish ing la the city a new $2,000,000 courthouse, the. citizens of Newark feel much elated over their City Hall, the la.tept addition to their list of fine buildings. \ "Pretty good showing for a city of three hun dred thousand population, isn't it?" was Com missioner HowelPs comment the other after noon. An elaborate programme has h«en arrange for the formal opening of the new City Hall, and Governor Stokes Is expected to b»- among tho«e present on that occasion. THE NEW CITY HALL OF NEWARK.

Lakewood. N. J., Dec. 15 (Special). — This re sort, as usual, will entertain a crowd of visitors over the holidays. Dances and entertainments of all sorts are being planned for the visitors. At the Lakewood Hotel there will be a grand ball on Christmas Eve. and hops every night in Christmas week. There will be a large gather ing of society people from New York and Phila delphia here. . Fan-tan, the Chinese card game, seems to hay« displaced bridge whist in the favor of the so ciety people here this season. Fantan parties are now all the vogue among the patrons of the Lakewood Hotel, and the tables In the cardroom are almost constantly in play. One of the novel entertainments of the week was a fantan party given in the palm garden of the Lakewood, at •which Mrs. Lewis F. Martin, of San Francisco. was th? hostess. The invitations proscribed that the guests should wear kimonos. After the games tea was served in small bowls. Chi nese fashion. Indoor tennis has gained such popularity here that arrangements are being made for a series of tournaments to be played on the new courts at the Lakewood Hotel in holiday week. These courts are inclosed in glass, and axe illuminated by electric light, so that the game may be played at night. This latter was done to suit the con venience of a large number of Wall Street brokers who commute each weekday of the sea son. Mr. and Mrs. John Morgan, of New York, are among former patrons of tho Lakewood Hotel who returned this week for an indefinite stay. In their walk* and drives through the pine woods this week, Lakewood visitors have been interested in observing the work of gathering Christmas greens for the New York market. The resort is surrounded on all sides by miles of pine forest. The country folk are now busy scouring this stretch of woods for laurel, ground pine, holly and mistletoe. Laurel and holly are found in abundance on the outskirts of the vil lage, but the mistletoe la not so easily obtained. Near Farmingdale whole families are now en gaged in the work. While the elders gather the greens, the women and children form them Into wreaths of various designs. Most of the small farmers depend upon this work for their Christ mas money, and for many It is a considerable item of their yearly income. One of the items of the social card for next week Is a musical and reception which Dr. and Mrs. William Gray Bchauffier ar« to give next Saturday, for, which two hundred Invitations ■nave been issued. Mr. and Mrs. E. Louis Rogers, of New York, gave a small dinner In the palm room restaurant of the Lakewood Hotel on Thursday evening in celebration of the tenth anniversary of their wedding. They brought their guests down from New York by automobile and entertained the party over the week end at the Lakewood Ho tel. The party included Mr. and Mrs. Walter B. Harding, Mr. and Mrs. Howard F. Rogers and Mr. and Mrs. Mortimer 8. Desjilalnes o^ New York. William A. Paton and his brother. Professor David Paton. a well known authority on ar chaeology, have taken the Justice Barrett cot tage In 7th street for the remainder of the sea son. These crisp, clear days enable Lakewood visit ors to enjoy all manner of outdoor diversions. Jolly parties of young folks leave the Lakewood Hotel and the Laurel House early each morning for a gallop around the lake and thence to Toms River, waking up the countryside with their shouts and laughter. Golf continues to hold the enthusiastic interest of Lakewood vis l'ors. and there is always a lively gathering at the Pine Forest Golf Club and the Country Club of Lakewood on pleasant days. Trap shooting is also a popular pastime. One of the pleasant affairs of the midwinter season will be a kirmegs to be given under the direction of Mrs. Arthur B. Claflln. Mrs. Claflin has enlisted the support of the members of the, villa colony In the project, and its success is assured. The purpose of the klrmess is to raise money to maintain a visiting nurse in Lake wood. and also provide medicine and nourish ment for the deserving sick.
