VOL. II NO. 227 * PfRTH AMBOY, N. J., SATURDAY, APRIL 25, 1903. SECOND EDI POLITICAL SECRETS / BEING WHISPERED. Former Senator Strong Visited This City And T diked Over The Local Situation?Said To Have Come In The Interest Of Assemblyman Jackson For Senator? Other Candidates. A Former Senator Theodore Stiong, of New Brunswick, came to town yester day and spent the entire day, it is said, whispering political secrets in the ears of Repnblican leaders. Ac cording to a reliable souroe, his mission was to assist Assemblyman Jackson into the senatorial chair this fall. Senator Strong did not altogether find the local field as fertile as he would like to have it. Of course he was greeted by his old friends in a genial manner and on the surface everything appeared fiiendly. The for mer senator, however, learned two things, if he did not already know them, which no doubt is oausing him a great deal of thinking. He found many of the local politicians talking about a local man to be the next Mid dlesex senator and Judge Adiian Lyon's name was heard perhaps a little more frequently than suited the former senator. It is also report ed that the New Brunswick leader found a little discord in his own ranks in that Milton A. Edgar, whom the \ former senator assisted into the oliair manship of the Republican oounty I committee, is likely to want the sena torial plum for his brother, Charles *3dgar,of Metuchen. It will be recalled th?at at the time when, at the bidding of Milton Edgar, his brother Charles stepped out of the senatorial race to give way for thw strong boom, the lat ter was elected and iVa* ig a man who keeps his word, consequently when the question of electing a chairman at the county committee came up a few months ago the strongest support Milton A. Edgar had name from Sena tor Strong and Mr. Eqlgar won out in the face of a fight, th^i like of which has seldom been recorded in the history of the county Jcommittee. It may also be recalled that although Mr. Edgar was turned down for the nomination of mayorfjn the city con vention here last j?ear, his friends rallied around him/ on election day with disastrous results for some of the party. It is said tfhese friends will still stand by him ind, as chairman of the County Comiiittee, Mr. Edgar's choice for the next / senator will cer tainly count for soimething. Now that formerj Senator Strong has been appointed Stfote Assessor, it is said the Edgars f4el that the Metich en man is the ? rightful candidate, having stepped /aside for Theodore Strong. How fa[r this rupture in the Strong ranks will be carried is not really known at; present. Milton A. Edgar, when se^n this morning, re fused to express himself for publica tion. / ? There are several reasons why the Edgar boom is, receiving support in this section qf the cou?tv- In the first place he had a good following when Theodor? Strong was nominated and, it is claimed, he can hold those followers todi^y. Secondly he has the barrel which yi8 not to be passed over lightly. Thirdly, in the rivalry which exists between this oity and New Brunswick it is pointed out that he comes from 'a town situated between these two hlaces and could control the votes of both. The Lvon boom is said to be backed by the faction in this oity which de feated Mr./ Edgar in the nomination for mayor.: The followers of Robert Oarson are also counted among the supporters of Judge Lyon. The Oar son men aire not saying much, but it is understood they were somewhat pleased Vyith the reception Senator Strong reoeived while down here yes terday. F.J.

PRICE WAS REDUCED. During April the Cost of a Ton Is Cheaper Than Any Month During The Year And The Dealers Are Taking Advantage of It? Bins at Stock Yards Are Being Emptied. Work on the Lehigh Valley docks is again rushing. Shipments are being made night and day. A few weeks ago the ?rice of coal, which has been almost the same since the coal strike, went down 50 cents a ton, and will stay down until the first of May when it will advance ten cents on a ton. The wholesalers are now taking advantage of this and are send ing in their orders so fast that it is all the local docks can do to handle them. As fast as a train arrives at the docks it is unloaded into the scows or boats that are waiting. During the night the extra gangs are busy getting the coal out of the bins which were filled but a short time ago. At the present time the bins, which a few weeks previous contained over 1C,000 tons of coal, are being rapidly emptied. A SERIOUS ACCIDENT. Mrs Milton A. Edgar Fell Down Stairs And Broke Three Rib?.

Mrs. Laden, when seen after the accident, said that her son Was some what deaf which would aooount for his not hearing the warnings of the car.
