Alderman Runyon's plan for im
proving th? oross streets and the tlior
oaghfares in the residential sections
of the city, as announced through the
Evening News, is being favorably
commented npon. It is argued that
the wagons coming in from the cross
streets to the main thoroughfares, or
those whioh are already paved, bring
with them muoh mad and dirt, which,
in dry weather, blows abont as dust,
creating- a great nuisance.
It will be remembered Mr. Ranyon's
plan was to have all the residential
and cross streets paved, for a width
of ten ^feet down the middle, with
macadam. This is the same as High
street is now paved between Smith
and Water streets. A crown is thus
given to the street and provides a
suitable place for horses to travel in
stormy weather. It is well known
that it is the constant use of a street
and wagons passing in the same traok
all the time whioh oauses such deep
holes, resulting in vehicles becoming
fast in the mire. With Mr. Runyon's
idea oarried out, the traffic in any
street would be on the maoadam and
it would only be when turning out for
another teap."Jw' av^spfaas^ould have*
t,o !<? mud.
The Evening News wants to see
Perth Am boy's streets in first class
condition so that no apologies need be
made for their appearance and we
heartily endorse Mr. Runyon's plan
toward accomplishing this much need
ed improvement so far as residential
streets are concerned. With but one
or two exceptions they are all in a
horrible condition and to place them
in proper repair in any reasonable
length of time some suoh scheme as
Mr. Runyon ha? suggested must be
adopted. Other kinds of pavements
cost a great deal of money and can
only be laid gradually.
Maoadam, however, is not the mater
ial for a business thoroughfare. This
fact has long ago been demonstrated
on Smith street where the dust in
summer and the oozy mud in winter
is a constant annoyanoe. Smith and
State streets, together with several
other thoroughfares where traffio is
heavy, should be paved with granite
blook. This work should be begun as
soon as possible and it would seem to
be up to some of the merchants, whose
customers are constantly oomplaining,
to start the movement. The condi
tion of Smith and State streets last
Saturday night, when the wind was
blowing, was a disgrace.
The carnival is a good thing. Perth
Amboy should have another one this
year. The Raritan Yaoht Olnb is
ready to take hold and push it along.
The club is the right one to do it.
Snob events are in its line and it
would doubtless make a great success
of the affair. The News stands read?
to lend all the aid possible.
From Perth Amboy's point of view,
the best thing done by the legislature
was the passage of the Gannon bill
giving cities the right to issne bondi
to plaoe their [.fire department on a
modern basis.
Macadam pavements are cheap as far
as the initial cost is concerned, but it
costs so much to keep them in repair
after they are put down that the city
authorities some time ago deoided to
lay no more maoadam pavements.
That, however, does not relieve the
city of the care of those macadam
pavements which are already laid.
One feature of the care of these streets
is the sprinkling. Where this work
is slovenly done or not done at all the
living along macadam roads in the
summer time is anything but a luxury.

Elelit Killed In Riot*.
MONTEREY, Mexico, April 4.?
Thursday's deplorable occurrence,
which, according to latest reports, re
sulted In the death of eight persons,
two policemen and six civilians, and
the injury of twenty others, has not re
sulted in any further disturbance. The
cause of the riot is directly attributa
ble to the cry of "I>c*th to Reyes!"
which was raised by a young man said
to be a student. No sooner had the
cry been raised than a policeman who
stood near drew his revolver and In
stantly killed the man, thus precipitat
ing the trouble.

i settled, but every indication points to
? a final adjustment very soon. Both
sides are making strenuous efforts to
come ' to an amicable understanding
and avert a strike. A long conference
has been held between representatives
of both sides, and it is stated that only
' minor details yet remain to be disposed

judged to be bankrupt in the United
States DistridfCourt at Trenton Thurs
day. Some time ago George B.
Rule, filed a petition to have the
company adjudged to be a bank
rupt. In due time the oompany an

Plain field, April 4.? James Olark,
of West Seventh street, has given
(5,000 as a nuoleus of a fund for the
erection of a boys' department build
ing in connection with the looal Young
Men's Christian Association.
The amount has fceeu deposited with
the Fidelity Trust Oompany of New
ark, the condition of the donation be
ing the sum will not be drawn until
three-fourths of the cost of the pro
posed building is raised.
The Answer Is Plain.
The Perth Ainboy Evening News
laments as follows :
"Perth Amboy would do well to
ponder over the following clipped
from the New York Evening Journal:
' We pointed out the fact that the
average coachman was paid $50 a
month, with his board, and the aver
age teacher in the country $47.55 per
month without board? the coaohman
being responsibe for the care of two
or three horses, and the teacher re
sponsible for the future welfare of
forty or more children. '
' ' When it is recalled that the major
ity of the teachers in this city get but
|43 per month and each one is respon
sible for the caie of between sixty and
eighty children, we are up against
something that is not pleasant to con
template. ' *

Strict Rale* For Ball Flayera? . Alt1
Favorites Lost at Bennlngii
WASHINGTON, April 4.? At a con
ference between President Pulliam and
his staff of National league umpires i
held at Old Point Comfort radical
measures were taken to enforce- rules
against "kicking" and rowdyism. The
following important construction was >
placed on rule 29, relative t? the pitch
er's position. It is construed as mean
ing "that the pitcher, ia taking hist po
sition, shall place no part of either foot
back of the rubber nor shall be take
more than one step In delivering the
ball to the batsman."' The enforce- ,
ment of this rule will do away with
all preliminary steps either to the rear
of or side of the pitcher's rubber. A
stricter Interpretation of rules prohibit- ?
ing the interfering with base runners
when caught between the bases was
agreed on.
Not a Favorite Won at Benningrs.
WASHINGTON, April 4.? Charming
weather and a card that gave promise
of excellent sport attracted the banner
crowd of the meeting yius far to the
races at Benniugs yesterday. The track
was in line condition, although a trifle
lumpy. The going was altogether the
best of the meeting. It was a had day
for the talent, not a single favorite
winning, and five out of the six favor
ites being unplaced. No jockey rode
two winners. The last race, at a mile
and a hundred yards, was the contest
of the day. For nearly a mile Sir Flo
rian, with T. Burns up, and II. L. Cole
man, ridden by Uedfern, ran side by
side. As they nearcd the wire both
jockeys rode as if their lives depended
on tlie result. Burns stalled off Red
fern's final effort on the favorite and
carried Sir Florian over the line a win
ner by a scant half length.

| Reports from taa pie sugar groves in
this vicinity show that the yield will
not exceed one-third of the average
crop. At this time last year growers
had their men breaking roads into the
woods through snowbanks from three
t* flfteeu feet deep. At present there
(b hardly any snow an the roads, and
there have been no "sugar snows" to
give encouragement to producers.
Many are not making any maple sugar
at all, claiming that on account of the
warm temperature the trees were bud
ding before it was really time to tap
for sap.
