Reported Delay in Sailing of
Sommcrstad Said to Be
Due to Presence of Essex
Off Delaware Capes.
Mystery surrounding tlio delay In the
snlllng from this port of tho Norwoglan
steamship Sommerstud, which cleared
a weolc ago, hns aroused much specula
tion In shipping circles. Tho vessel Is
heavily lnden with coat nnd general car
go usually reckoned ns ship's supplies.
According to her clearance papers, sho
Is ostensibly scheduled to sail for Cadiz,
Spain. Tho causo of delay was not ex
plained by Captain Axelsen, mnster of
the vessel, or its agent, William J. Qrand
fleld. Men supposed to know tho port's busi
ness thoroughly when asked for an ex
planation merely slirutrirorl tliMr nhmii.
dcra and laconically replied: "Isn't tho
Urltlsh cruiser Ussex lying oft tho Dela
waro Capes?"
This remark Is taken to Indicate that
the vessel's cargo Is contraband goods
and liable to seizure. Somo shipping
men said that tho ultimate destination of
tho goods might bo tho German cruisers
Dresden nnd Karlsruhe, now playing
havoc with British and French cam
morco In the Caribbean Sea
It has been charged that theso cruisers,
which have never put Into any port
slnco war was declared for a renewal of
their supplies, have been receiving car
goes at sea which havo been shipped
from this port. An Investigation into
theso charges develop a possibility of
their truth, as four Norwegian steam
ships have sailed from this port within
the past few weeks carrying cargoes
consisting of canned goods, salt beef, salt
jiorK, uacon, nam, rice, sugar, cheese,
ordinarily accepted as ship's stores It)
shipping business. In addition to these
they carried several thousand tons of bi
tuminous coal.
Tho Ilrst vessel to leavo was tho Nor
wegian steamship Xepos, Captnln Nell
sen. She sailed on August 22 for Mon
lovla, Libera and Tenerlffe, for orders.
Ilor cargo was valued at S22.107.52. Sho
was followed on Septembor 2 by tho John
I.udwlg Mowhincklo, -with a similar car
go for the same destinations, valued at
$23,339.91. On September S tho Norwegian
steamship Unlta sailed for Cadiz. Spain,
with a cargo valued at J2G.332.3S. Tho
Sommcrstad, scheduled for tho samo port
as Is tho Fram, now being laden.
In the charges that vessels leaving this
port have been keeping tho German
cruisers In supplies, it was Indicated that
fabulous-sums aro being paid tho own
ers for tho risk. It was said that tho
vessels aro Instructed to go to a cortaln
position at sea and there await the ar
rival of ono of the cruisers which baa
been apprised by wireless of the vessel's
Tho Karlsruhe and tho Dresden aro
both light, speedy cruisers. They confine
their efforts to capturing and sinking
merchant vessels, as they havo no port
to tuko them to. Thoy decline to give
battle to tiny British br French warships
and their speed makes It easy for them
to eludo buttle.
Tho lollowlug was the manifest of ono
of ilio vessels:

TmiNTO.V, Hept. 2I.-Tomorrow,s pri
mary day In Now Jersey, the day when
factional lights In nU parts of tho State
will bo determined. after which tho lie-
publicans, Domocrnts and Progressives
will settlo down to tho work of trying to
elect their respective candidates In tho
fall election. Tho Hull Moosers as n. party
aro virtually eliminated In Now Jersey
this fall. In I'nssalo and Ocean Counties
they havo combined with the Democrats,
which fact alone Is taken to mean tho
death knoll of tho Itoosovcltlans oa a
party of weight. Tho fights within tho
Democratic and Itepubllcan ranks, how
ever, aro numerous, and somo of thorn
nro bitter.
In the prlmnry fight In Hudson tho
voters will bo called upon to decldo which
of two brands of Wilson Democracy they
want. For tho time being also, at least,
will bo settled tho question, of tho su
premacy In the country betweon tho
factions of Is'nval Officer II. Otto Wltt
penn on oo side ad oGvcrnor Fielder on
tho other. Wlttpcnn has a complete
county and congressional ticket In tho
field, under tho standard of "ProgreBslvo
Democracy" and the ticket against him
Is tho "anti-boss" ticket. Governor
Fielder, who Is from Hudson, Is not tak
ing an active interest In tho pro-primary
fight, but It Is generally believed thnt ho
Is stalling his Interests on tho legislative
ticket in tho field which Is against Wltt
In the First Congressional District, con
sisting of Camden, Gloucester and Salom
Counties, Itepresontntlvo William J.
Browning, tho Itepubllcan Incumbent nnd
candidate, has no opposition within his
own ranks. Ho carried tho district In
1912 under tho most unfavorable party
conditions and he is expected to win the
election with small effort. Camden County
from a Itepubllcan standpoint Is In good
shape, more thnn GOOO names having boon
placed on Senator William T. Head's pe
tition. Senator Read, Republican, Is run
ning for re-electlou, In thnt county to tho
Stato Senate and ho Is believed to havo
every chance for success. It. Graham
Bleakley Is the Democratic senatorial can.
dldato for tho nomination, and B. H. Red
flcld, thd Bull Moose aspirant.
Sheriff Joseph 13. Nowrey, Democrat,
Is ono of tho candidates for tho Demo
cratic congressional nomination In tho
First District, and Harry C. Richmond Is
another Democratic candidate. Nowrey, It
Is declared, will get the solid Democratic
vote, eliminating Richmond almost en
tirely. George H. Hlgglns Is running as
a Progressive-Roosevelt candidate, and
Georgo D. Chenowlth as an Independent
Progressive candidate, but their voto it Is
believed will bo scattering.
In tho Camdon County Republican con
test for tho Assembly thero aro ilvo can
didates for thethreo places on the ticket.
Theso candidates arc Assemblymnn John
B. Kates and Garfield Pancoast, nnd John
H. Fort, Charles Wolvcrton and Dean S.
Prcssey. Tho Democratic candidates nro
Herbert W. Royal. Ralnh W. Weseott
and David G. McGenr. Tho Progressive
Assembly ticket consists of Louis B.
I.adue, Edmond West and Arthur Lltlor.
Senator George W. F. Gaunt. Repub
lican, from Gloucester County, who Is
seeking re-election to the State Senate,
has no opposition In tho primaries. He
Is prominently Identified with the
Grangers of the State and has never yet
been beaten in politics.
Salem County Republicans are reported
to be In good shape. The Democrats there
ato having a bitter fight over tho re
nomluution of Senator Isaac S. Smlck.
Ht Is being strongly opposed by tho Rev.
13. J. Gwynn, a Democrat, who Is seeking
senatorial honors. Collins B. Allen, tho
Republican candidate, has no opposition
In tho primaries. Chalkley Haines is the
Progressive candidate.
In tho Second Congressional District
tho fight Is very hitter In tho Republican
ranks. It is concentrated In Atlantic
County, although Bui Huston, t'ape Jlnv
and Cumbeiland, the other counties of tho
district. liavi been tirnwn Into it.
The four Republli-nu c.mdldntp.i In thf
field for the nomination In the Second
Congressional Dlatilct are Assemblyman
Emerson I.. Richards. ISanc W. Bacli
arach, ex-Senator Grlfllth W. Lewis and
Senator Blanchard II. White. Tho war.
particularly betweon Richards and IJach
nrach, Is to tho knife.
It Is not unlikely that Baeharaeh may
get tho nomination under the present pri
mary tactics, but Itepubllcan leaders, or
at least some of them, think that tho
nomination of Wh'te or Lewis would
probably bo tho host thing for the party.
Tho Democrats have no fight In their
ranks ns far as tho congressional nomi
nation Is concerned In the Second District.
Representative .1. Thompson Baker Is
their candidate for renomlnntlon, Tho
Progressives, whose stnndard bearer is
William II, Bright, arc showing possibly
more vitality In that section, relatively
speaking, than elsewhere In the Stato.
In Atlantic County all other Issues
aro dwarfed In the congressional battle
nnd Mio congressional candidates nnd
their friends nro lit each others' throats,
forgetting almost entirely In tho Intensity
of their flRht the Itepubllcan party. Carl
ton Godfrey and II. E. Whitman, Repub
licans, who nro running for tho Assembly,
will bo elected to thnt body, Tho Dem
ocratic candidates for the Assembly nom
ination are Richard P. Bloom, John C.
Magco nnd William Carlton.
In Cumberland County there Is n lively
fight on for Sheriff In both primnrles,
with general good naturo on tho Repub
lican side and some factional feeling
nmong the Democrats. Tho Cumberland
County Democracy Is divided Into the
Ackloy nnd anll-Acklcy factions. Sena,
tor John A. Ackley, Democrats will servo
until 1917, hut the faction against him
Is growing, It Is reported. The Assembly
candidates for tho Republican nomina
tion In this county are It. W. Sheppard
nnd Arthur S. Craig, who are opposing
each other. On tho Democratic sldo the
opposing candidates are L. W. Errlckson,
Wnltcr I Glaspoy and David II. Johnson.
Thero Is quite a fight over county
ofllccn In Burlington County. Assembly,
man Robert Peacock, Republican, Is un
opposed In the primaries. Ills Democratic
opponent will bo W. D. Cowperthwalt,
nnd Geurgo AV. Gllllngham will run as a
Cape May presents the usual normal sit
uation. Assemblyman Lewis T. Stovons,
Republican, Is unopposed for ronomlna
tlon as tho Republican candidate for tho
In the Third Congressional District, con
slstlng of Monmouth, Mlddlcsox and
Ocean Counties, Representative Thomas
J. Scully will ho lonomlnated by tho Dem
ocrats. Tho Republicans seemed unable
to get a strong candidate against him.
Finally W. Burtls Havens, of Ocean
County, was Induced to enter the contest,
but the Business Men's League, of Asbury
Park, thought tho nomination of Hetrlck,
a Progressive, advisable, and word has
been received here of Havens' withdrawal
In favor of Hetrlck.
There Is a bitter fight on in Monmouth
County among tho Democrats over tho
senatorial nomination. Henry E. Acker
son, Jr., backed by Secretary of State
Crater and tho Wilson Democrats, Is be
ing strongly opposed by Thomas P. Fay,
of Long Branch, who Is running as an
anti-Wilson, nntl-Crater candidate. Fay
claims that he has been pledged enough
support to get tho nomination. Tho Re
publican candidate in Monmouth Is T.
Frank Appleby, who has no opposition
for the nomination. Joseph G. Coleman
Is the Progressive senatorial candidate.
The Assembly situation In Monmouth
presents no unusunl featurcu.
In Ocean County the Democratic Assem
bly candidate, James 13. Conlcy, is also
the Bull Mooso candidate for tho nom
ination, tho Democrats and Progressives
having combined in that county. Assem
blyman David G. Conrad, Republican,
will be renominated to the Assembly.
Thero nro four Republican nnd live Dem
ocratic candidates for the three places on
the Middlesex County Assembly ticket.
Four Republicans, two Democrats and
a Progressive arc seeking tho congres
sional nominations In the Fourth District,
comprising Mercer, Hunterdon and Som
erset Counties. Tho Republican organiza
tion Is behind cx-Sentitor E. C. Hutchin
son, It Is said, but he will bo given a
hard race by William E. Blackman, a
young lawyer of this city.
Hutchinson, it Is declared, wilt lose
many votes because ho previously lined
up with the Bull Moose. William Dola
roche Anderson, of Somervlllo, and Fred
erick A. Pope, of this city, aro making
a fight for the Republican congressional
nomination, but It Is likely that tho nom
ination will go to cither Hutchinson or
Blackman. Tho Democratic candldato is
Representative Allan B. Wnlsh, who Is
standing on Wilson's principles to win
him ro-olectlon. Ho is opposed In the
primaries by Charles J. Drake, whose
candidacy Is not regarded seriously. J.
Wlggnns Thorn, a Progressive, will be
For the Mercer Assembly Republican
ticket with three places, there nro nlno
candidates, and on the Democratic sldo
theie uro flvr. Tho lighting on both sides
la lively, but friendly. There Is consid
erable bitterness, however, among both
Democrats and Republicans over tho
Sheriff's contest. The Republicans have
ten candidates In the field nnd the Demo
crats two. Tlicie is also a Progressive.
.1. Warien Fleming and Assemblyman
Horvey S. Moore, of tho Republicans,
seem to bo leading, while J. (1. Coleman,
a Ticnton undertaker, will ptobably gel
tho Democratic nomination. Sheriff Wal
