PRINCIPLES, PROVIDENCE. PERSONS WILLIAM A. SUMMERILL, Editor VOL. 43, NO. 22 PENNS GROVE, N. J., FRIDAY, Jl WE 3. 1021 Established 1878 SINGLE CORIES, 5 CENTS Daylight Saving Adopted By Council Will Go Into Effect June 5th Eight Bids For New Fire Apparatus Received Ihe Mayor and Council met in regular session on Tuesday evening in the Borough hall. The meeting opened with President George M. Pyne in the chair, but he was relieved later by the Mayor. All the members were present together with Borough Clerk W. A. Hunt, Solicitor Leap, a good at tendance of citizens and big delega tion of fire apparatus representatives. The Fire Commissioners reported favorably on securing equipment for a working squad of the members and on motion they were instructed to purchase nine black rubber coats at $8.50 each, three white coats for the Chief and his assistants at $14.50 each; nine pairs black boots at $4.90 a pair; three pairs white boots at $9.75 a pair; two gas masks at $20 each; one 2'» inch expander and a dozen expansion rings. The Finance Committee reported a balance in the hands of the treasurer of $37,863.66. The report of Charles R. Leonard, Overseer of the Poor, for 51 ay, was read and accepted. Some time ago the Water Company was petitioned to extend its mains into Walnut Street, Willis Street and Smith Avenue and to instal fire plugs at several points on different streets. The Water Company had not done anything because they claimed they had no funds available, and besides they must be assured of revenue from the increased service to warrant the expense. The Pubilc Utilities Commis sion sustained the claim that they should receive a fair rate of interest or income for any such outlay. It was decided, however, to try again, and the Solicitor was instruct ed to apply to the Utility Commission for an order requiring the Company to extend its mains into the streets mentioned, to place fire plugs where needed for protection from fire and take up the matter of securing a con tract with the Water Company. Recorder Walter Edgar’s bond in the sum of $2500, furnished by a bonding company, was received and the cost thereof ordered paid. A resolution prevailed providing for the adoption of the daylight saving plan which goes into effect over a large contiguous territory on Sunday, June 5th, and the Mayor will issue a proclamation informing the citizens of the action taken by Council. Borough Clerk W. A. Hunt present ed a check for money he had received for jitney licenses issued. This pro voked a discussion over the mixup, caused by the State laws governing jitney traffic. Councilman Gillison said the Clerk had no right to issue such licenses now and the fees shjuld be returned. The local ordinance governing jit neys, however, provides for the issue of licenses and fixes the fees. Under the new7 State law jitneys cannot traffic on streets on which a trolley line is operated, and in any event such licenses as the Borough Clerk may lawfully issue must be presented to the Utility Commission for their ap proval. It was finally decided to redraft the ordinance so as to conform with the State laws and the Solicitor was in structed to advise the Clerk under what conditions licenses could be issued. Reading ot bids tor trie new nre apparatus and necessary euipment was then taken up. There were eight bona fide bids, all of which covered the specifications prepared by Council. The details of them all would take up two or three pages of the Record. Prices for the outfit ranged from $13,000 down to $9,135.00. Time of delivery also varied from 30 to 120 working days. Each bid was accompanied by a certi fied check for $500 except one bidder who put up the cash. The bids were turned over to the Fire Commissioners, who, after giv ing them careful consideration will present the result of their delibera tions at a future meeting when the Council will take final action thereon. Donald J. McCloskey was asked to give Council some information re garding the siren fire alarm, his firm having installed the necessary' electri cal work for operating the whistle. It is understood that the Federal Electrical Company’s proposition was to instal a siren that could be heard under any ordinary conditions of wind and weather for a distance of one and a half miles. May tests made so far and observed by membei-s of Council and others show that the whistle has failed to come up to this standard. Even when heard at shorter distances it would hardly be considered of suffi cient volume for a fire alarm. Mr. McCloskey said he did not think such tests as had been made were evidence that the siren was a failure. He did not think it had been given a fair test yet. They had ma terially increased the volume of souivu and carrying distance by rais ing it about sixteen feet above the original point. He thought that if the tower was raised twenty feet above its present height the whistle would give satisfactory results. This work would cost about $120. Councilman Charles L. Smith said he had been present at some of the Continued on page 4 Memorial Day Fittingly Celebrated A Large Parade and Tributes Paid To The Heroic Dead J Memorial Day was observed last Monday by a suspension of business and by a larger attendance of services than for years, as the people have more leisure time than during the stress of war. The program of the day was under the auspices of Lieut. E. H. Green Camp, Sons of Veterans, The parade was first to the foot of Main Street where tribute was paid to the sailors and marines. Rev. S. J. Dorlon made a brief address. The line of procession formed in front of Odd Fellows’ Hail and proceeded to Union Comer, thence up Broad to Riverview Cemeteery. The Mayor and Council led the way and were followed by the surviving members of Acton Post Xo. 33. They were Capt. Samuel Denny, Isaac P. Simkins, Samuel M. Layman and P. H. j T. Wyatt; also Charles Emenetker was with them. John Giblin was unable to be present. Then came the floats of the Sons of Veterans, Daughters of Rebekah, Patriotic Order of America, Eastern Star, Daughters of Pocahontas. Joseph N. Layman, chief marshal. Chief of Police Houseworth and Borough police. Carneys Point Band. American Legion. Sons of Veterans. Junior Mechanics. Loyal Order of Moose with their Degree Team in uniform. Order of Elks. Eden Lodge of Odd Fellows. Xokomis Tribe of Red Men. Swedesboro Band. Large flag carried by twenty boys. Boys Scouts. Girl Scouts. Carneys Point school children. Penns Grove school children. St. James school. Between the boys and the girls was a float representing a grave covered with an American flag with an angel at the head and Liberty at the foot. It was' an impressive scene and ap propriate for the day. The lodges and schools had their banners. The most novel and strik ing was that at the head of St. James school. Beside the Stars and Stripes was the yellow and white flag, the Imperial banner of the Pope at Rome, who claims superior allegiance. After the G. A. R. service in River view and Emmanuel Cemeteries, Rev. R. S. Carlisle spoke at both places. He told of the importance of renewing the memories of our heroic dead and teaching the reasons for their going to battles and the principles of our nation so that children will leam how to carry on the nation when others have passed away. At Emmanuel Cemetery Rev. Ed gar A. Miller, of Camden, also spoke. He said that during his six years pas torate at Emmanuel Church the G. A. R. had been very courteous to him, the son of one who wore the gray. His father was captured at Roanoke Island and some of Penns Grove sol diers did it. He spoke of the hand of Providence in the destiny of this Nation. How it was kept united by the result of the war between the States, for which all now are glad, so a united country could be hurled against the autocracy of Germany and win. In the war with Spain, the former soldiers of the North and South fought. In 1913 there was a happy reunion of the blue and gary at Gettysburg and later at Chickamauga, where it was shown that all the ani mosities had passed away and we are a Union in friendship and spirit. Their valor and achievements must be kept fresh so that we may be worthy of our heritage and be a part of God’s plan in the destiny of nations. Rev. Fred J. Peters pronounced the bene diction. ---o The Library Association A special meeting of the Library Association members was held Tues day evening 'n the Library room.

Ro>ie Racita's Bail Increased 'I he appeal ease of Nathan S. Wood against Maxwell Ewing, noth of Perms Grove, was heard before Judge Ware on Friday last. The plaintiff was represented by S. Rusiing Leap and the defendant by Joseph J. Summerill, Jr., of Wood bury. Mr. Wood sued for damages under the Workmen's Compensation Act for injuries received. Before a referee in the New Jersey Department of Labor the case was originally dis missed, hence the appeal. Several points were agTeed to at the opening, viz: that Mr. Wood while working at the mill of Mr. Ewing met with an injury on May 28th. 19210, in which the first, second and third fingers of his right hand were cut off and his little finger 50 per cent impaired. The main point at issue was whether or not Mr. Wood was injured while working un der a partnership agreement or as a master and sen-ant. The evidence of Mr. Wood, the plaintiff, was that Mr. Ewen wanted him to go into partnership with him ; in the making of tomato crates and at first he consented, but later refused. Mr. Wood then worked by the day in making up some of the crate.- and to erect a small shed over one of the saws at his mill. On the morning in question he had assisted Mr. Ewen in planing a board and was in the act of throwing off the belt when his hand came in contact with the saw which he alleged Mr. Ewen started. Mr. Ewen denied that the agree ment to enter copartnership for the making of crates had been cancelled. There were still many crates on hand which when sold Mr. Wood would share in the profits. He could no: recall planing a board, as Mr. Wood had .-tated. but was po.-itive that the plaintiff had been working all the morning on boards for the crates and it was while thus employed that he met his injuries. There was no denial that pay for building the shed was separate from the agree ment of making the crates. Several witnesses were called to testify that they had heard Mr. Wood say he did not propose to keep the agreement with Mr. Ewen and some for the defendant believed he was at work on crates on the day in question. Judge Ware reserved his decision. Blanche Wallace, a colored girl, plead guilty to the larceny of a dia mond ring from Miss Katharine Cooney, Postmistress at Pedricktown. and she was placed in charge of Pro bation Officer Gallaway for two vear and fined $50 and costs. Emidio Yalori. of Penns Grove, plead guilty to the manufacture of liquor for sale and was fined $300 and costs to stand committed until the fine and costs are paid. With the stuff taken when Yalori was arrested was a six cylinder Grant touring ear and At. tomey William B. Surran endeavored to get this for his client but Judge Ware would not allow it. believing nn • der the Act that the title had been lost, for it was used in the transpor tation of the booze. He was fined $300 and costs. Joe and Rosie Raciti were called upon to plead to the charge of viola i tion of the Enforcement Act. They denied making sales, claiming that they merely had it for their friends. This is the notorious “hoochhole” that has been causing the authorities so much trouble. Although Attorney Surran endeavored to get some dispo sition of the case. Judge Ware re manded the defendants to jail until Friday of this week. During the day the bail of Rosie was raised to $2500 by Judge Ware which indicates that he does not pro pose to take any chances in her escape. She objected very strenuously to being taken back to jail and used some pretty strong language toward I the Court and officers. ■o An Excellent Sermon To Graduates The 1921 class of Penns Grove High School attended St. Paul's M. E. Church last Sunday morning- and heard the words of the Son of David expounded and expanded that will crown the life with laurels and lead to celestial bliss. Rev. H. T. Fisler i took his text from Ecclesiastes 9:10. “Whatsover thy hand findeth to do. do it with thy might." He said in part that there is a duty for every one to perform. We should take pride in doing something definite. To do implies knowledge and power. ! The world is full of force for us to marshal at our command. Concentra tion and control is our duty now. As the spirit of God reveals to man his duty may we show our enthusiasm in mind and heart and at God's final call be prepared to take the wings of morning and soar to celestial bliss. -o Ocean Grove Has Old Government The Court of Errors and Appeals of the State of New Jersey has affirm ed the Supreme Court decision hold ing unconstitutional the Ocean Grove Borough act.
