FRIDAY, APRIL 10. 1903.
At their last meeting the Board of
Aldermen took favorable action on
the petition of property owners along
Smith'street to pave that thorough
fare between High street and the
Central railroad with asphalt. As
jj Jo as been pointed out in the Evening
News, asphalt has been fonnd to be
very unsatisfactory in a great major -
lty of cities when used for paving a
business thoroughfare. Its longest
life is but ten years even when put
down on a concrete foundation. Onlv
the proDerty owners feel the real
burden now, but when the pavement
begins to need repairs it will dig deep
holes in the city's treasury.
But the kind of material is not the
Only objection to the present move
ment to pave Smith street. The peti
tion proposes to make a patchwork of
the improvement. What is the object
of stopping the pavement at High
street. Are the business men east of
that thoroughfare to suffer?
The Evening News advocates pave
ments everywhere and at all times,
rut we cannot approvcg|pf any such
'J^*\iith st
id t
stopping point if the oitizens are not
prepared to pave to the city line, but
there is no reason for stopping the
improvement at High street. If only
part of the thoroughfare is paved with
asphalt at this time it is very likely
that the two remaining blocks between
High street and the hill will be cover
ed with some other material which is
decidedly objectionable.
The Evening News advocates granite
block from the ferry house at the foot
of the hill to the city line on the west
and the same material for State street
from Smith street to Woodbridge
creek. That is the best wearing
material and gives the most general
satisfaction to those who have to
handle teams.
Rather than see asphalt go down on
Smith street, however, we would ad
vocate brick. Tnis would at least'
hare a uniform appearance with the
hill which is already paved with that
material. Let the aldermen consider
well before they proceed further.
They should at least insist upon the
paving being done right if it is to be
done at all.
The sinking of the steam canal boat
at the Lehigh Valley dooks'should re
ceive more than a passing notice by
the authorities. If the vessel is as
rotten as she is reported, she shonld
have been condemned long ago.
The Central Railroad of New Jersey
has been severely censured for running
engines on their road which are de
clared to be oat of repair and unsafe,
bat no one seems to have the author
ity to censure a towage company
which keeps rotten boats in commis
sion. If anyone can be broueht to
aocount for the loss of the two lives
in the sinking of the steamer at the
docks, the authorites should lose no
time doing it. Perhaps Coroner
Henry, after an investigation, will fix
the responsibility.
How is this? Coal at New Bruns
wick is selling for $5.76 a ton retail;
at Bayonne it is 15.50 a ton, while at
Perth Amboy, one of the largest coal
shipping [ports along the Atlantic
coast, the people are forced tc pay $6
a ton. Something seems to be out of
gear somewhere.
Those newspapers whioh have been
congratulating the State that the Leg- j
islatnre had adjourned will now have
the fun of doing it all over again.
Trenton spent $226.08 in making re
pairs to her paved streets last year
and $10,048.79 in repairing unpaved
streets. Paving is a good investment
for a city in more than one wav.
If Perth Amboy wants to name the
next Senator of Middlesex County, as
one of it newspapers intimated the
other day, she had better get busy .
right away. The field is filling up!
fast up here. The Democrats of the
county might do worse than name
young Mr. Gannon, who has made a 1
eood record at Trenton as Assembly- 1
man. He was handicapped because;
he was in the minority and the major
ity didn't let him do anything bril
liant if they could heln it. As it was,
however, he more than satisfied his
friend*. --New Brunswiok Home News.
The Middlesex county politicians
are trying to find out what the ap
pointment of Senator Strong to the
State Board of Assessors means. Some j ,
of them figure it out that it indicates ' ;
that Robert Carson will nominate and
elect a Senator who will vote for John
Kean in 1905, while others think the
move was made to leconcile party ;
differences and make sure of a Repub- 1
lican Senator next fall. There seems
to be a general agreement that Sena- ;
tor StroiiB would have been defeated
for re-election because of his interfer
ence in the county chairmanship fight
recently.? Trenton Times.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.. April 10.? The

members signing the majority report, i
finding certain charges sustained by
the evidence. Three members signed a
report exonerating both Governor Da

tiary board from any action of a crimi
nal nature. If the majority report is
adopted, impeachment proceedings may
