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.

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

BY AUTO CAR.
James Laden Struck But Only
Slightly Injured This
Noon.
HAS SCALP WOUND.
Boy Was Playing In The Street? Auto
Sounded Warning But He Apparently
Did Not Hear It? Said To Be Hard Of
Hearing? Parents Presented With $10
Bill.
Seven-year-old James Laden, son of
Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Laden, of Madi
son avenue, was rnn down by an anto
car on New Brunswick avenneatnoon
today and had a narrow escape from
being killed outright. The people in
charge of the car, who afterwards
gave their names as Mr. and Mrs. Lee
Kohns, of New York city, saw the
boy playing in the street and when he
paid no attention to their warnings,
they slowed down, bat struck the lad
before they could stop. The occu
pants of the car did all they oould for
the lad and when they starred off they
presented Mr. Laden with a $10 bill.
The auto car knocked the boy to one
side and while part of the body of the
machine passed over the child, the
wheels did not touch him.
Doctors Lund and Levy were sum
moned as quickly as possible and when
they arrived the boy was taken to the
house where a careful examination
was made. It was found that no
bones were broken but that the lad
was suffering from a slight scalp
wound.
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.
Mrs. Eohns said tney would not
have hit the boy but for the fact that
he ran directly in front of the machine
when he saw it ooming.
The people in the auto were on their
way to New York, having left Prinoe
ton this morning. They had arrived
at Princeton from Wilmington, Del.,
after a tour through Virginia.
The owner of the machine showed
every desire to do what was right and
requested the doctors to do their work
well and as he boarded his car he
presented the money telling the par
ents to buy toys for the bov.

what action was taken is not known.
It is claimed by friends of Jelin
that he has affidavits showing that a
