WILLIAM ASUMMERILL, Editor VOL. 43, NO. 23 PRINCIPLES, PROVIDENCE, PERSONS Established 1878 PENNS GROVE, N. J., FRIDAY, JUNE 10. 1921 SINGLE COPIES, 5 CENTS Council Buys New Fire Engine American La France Co. Suc cessful Didders at S12,o00 Delivery In 90 Days The Mayor and Council met in ad journed session on Tuesday night. Mayor S. M. Hunt presided and all members responded to roll call. A bill of $468 was presented for the new siren fire alarm by the Federal Electric Company with a request for payment as the money was overdue. The Clerk was instructed to write to the Federal Company stating that the whistle had not proven satisfac tory and the Borough was not ready to accept it under the tests so far made. The Fire Commissioners and a com mittee of the Fire Company reported having met and gone over the different bids for a pumping engine. They re ported unanimously in favor of the American La France engine at a cost of $12,500 and delivery guaranteed in ninety days. A motion that the report be re ceived and the bid of the American La France accepted was carried with out a dissenting vote. To prevent any technical obstacles the contract was made acceptable upon the approval of the Borough Solicitor. The engine has a maximum pump ing capacity of 750 gallons of water per minute. It is of the triple combi nation type which includes chemical apparatus and hose cart, all small hose for the chemical, a 40-gallon tank, tools and other paraphernalia. An ordinance providing for the li censing and registering of dogs was introduced and passed first reading. The police department was instruct ed to notify all persons who have awn ings over the sidewalks less than seven feet in height to raise them to a clearance of seven feet. There was a lively discussion over the authority of the Inspector of Buildings in the matter of issuing per mits. A party had asked pel-mission of Inspector Edward H. Keen to erect a barn from the lumber in the old blacksmith shop on Penn Street. He agreed to cover the roof with fire proof material but this does not cover the requirements in the fire zone. The Inspector refused the application and referred the man to Council. He ap peared on Tuesday night and aug mented his offer by agreeing to cover the entire building with tin or sheet iron. Mr. Smith thought this covered the law and moved that the request be granted but the motion was lost. The members held that such matters should not be acted upon over the head of the Inspector. When the party agreed to confoi-m to the ordinance the Inspector would know what to do and the matter was referred back to him. Court Proceedings In the County Court, at Salem, be fore Judge Ware, on Friday last, Joe and Rosie Raciti, of Penn| Grove, re tracted their pleas of not guilty to the sale and manufacture of liquor in vio lation of the prohibition enforcement act. Each was sentenced to two months in the County jail and to pay a fine of $500 and costs. William B. Surran, attorney for the Racitis, made an earnest plea in be half of the woman, saying that she was not one of the leaders in the crime, and that neither she nor her husband had ever been in trouble be fore. Judge Ware in his comments said according to the woman’s own admis sions she had been conducting the place for six years without any inter ference and should have been before the Court long ago. Chief Marshal Houseworth and Officer Harbeson said they never knew of the defendants being arrested be fore and that they had never had any trouble with their place. Judge Ware said it was admitted that on the night of the raid that the authorities found three barrels of wine, the cellar was full of empty ban-els, five gallons of alcohol were in a dog house, a wine press recently used, empty bottles were found in a stove and that the woman attempted to get some of the stuff away from the officers. The house was surrounded by a high picket fence, gates locked and vicious dogs were watching the premises. Attorney Surran declared he would appear in no more prohibition cases before the Court. He asked that the Court deal leniently with the defend ants. ■o Salem County Olympic Salem County’s Olympic events are being played on the Dye Works Field, Penns Grove, today (Friday).

New Bridge At Auburn Notwithstanding the action of the City Council of Salem, Philadelphia, New York and Penns Grove, and the demands of public meetings, Salem County is still running on standard time. This was shown on Wednesday when the County Board of Freehol ders held their regular monthly meet ing. As fixed in the year book of the board the meeting was not called to order until 11 o’clock standard time. It was therefore high noon for the daylight savers and they were wend ing their several ways toward dinner while the Freeholders got down to business. Incidentally this threw the members out of whack as to their own dinners, for the Nelson House, where they have been w'ont to dine, had also gone on the new' time, and if it had not been for the accommodating spirit of Landlord Moran they would not have been able to enjoy their usual midday meal. As it was it was really 12.25 day light saving time when the roll was called, the morning session was therefore short, being occupied princi pally with routine business and the reading of the bridge report. The afternoon session, however, made up for this as it was not until six o’clock standard time when final adjournment was taken. The reason for the Free holders to continue to observe stand ard time is that it is required by law for them to do so especially when they are awarding contracts or transacting other business of a legal status. After the report of the Road Com mittee had been read and disposed of the matter of accepting the plans and specifications for the graveling of Route 6, section 5, of the State High way system was taken up. This is the portion of the road lying in Salem County and extending from Shirley to the Gloucester County line which is to be permanently reconstructed under the reimbursement act. The County is to furnish the money and will be reimbursed in 1922. It is proposed to grade and gravel the six miles of road this summer and to finish it in concrete next year. County Engi neer stated that he had objected to the provisions in the specifications prepared by the State Highway de partment in that they provided that the road shall be rolled and also that the contract must be finished by Oc tober 15. In his opinion this meant an increase in the cost of construction and he believed that if the time for finishing the contract was fixed at December 15 it would mean a saving of public money as would also the elimi nation of the requirement to roll the road. Mr. Charles Seabrook, member of the State Board of Highway Commis sioners, was present and explained that these specifications are the standard required by the State on all of its road work and that if these changes were made it would mean the same thing. As the money to be used is from the State, or rather will be paid back by the State, and as the State Highway Commisioners had ap proved these specifications, he could not see that it would make any differ ence to the County. At the most the County would be put to an extra ex pense of about $150, and that it was very little when it was realized that the work would be done by a contrac tor who would be only too glad to get the work finished so that the road could be used two months before the time advocated by the County Engi Mr. Griffin, of the Engineer’s de partment, was present and had the plans with him. He stated that the rolling of the road would make it fit for use next winter and that the ditches were ample to take care of all water so that there was little danger of the road being damaged by the frost. He also stated that the per centage of clay permitted in the gravel was lower than usual and that would also insure a good road. Director Gray stated that the people of that section of the County demand ed that the road be built as it was now impassable. Mr. Borton said that if we desired to have the State build the road we would have to submit to the rulings of the body in authority. Mr. Keasbey had written a letter in which he stated that he would not ap prove the specifications unless author ized by a resolution adopted by the Freeholders. Mr. Weldon then offered a resolu tion instructing the Engineer to ap prove the specifications and this was adopted by a vote of ten to three. Those voting nay were Messrs. Reeves. Powers and Smith. Mr. McCarson was not present at the time. Shorter Route To Seashore Mr. Seabrook also brought up the matter of building about three miles of road between the half way house to Cohansey. Cumberland County was alreadv at work on their portion of this road and if Salem County would build their portion next year it would mean a shorter route to Atlantic City by way of Deerfield, Centreton, Norma and Vineland. It would be a fine gravel road about four miles shorter than the present route to Atlantic j City. It would also fill a great want for transportation in a rich farming country where there is now no good j road. It was generally agreed that the work on this section of road would be Continued on page 4 Carneys Point News Items Dye Makers’ Doings, Entertain ments and Enjoyments William R.
