A Gen ral Fund is being Made up from all Sections of the Country and it is Hoped this will Reach $I00,000-Perth Ani boy Interestsd? Money can be Sent to Local Committee. At the last regular meeting of the Young Men's Hebrew Association, held in their rooms in the Adelaide building, 138 Smith street, it was de oided to raise a relief fund among the people of Perth Amboy to be add ed to the eeneral fnnd, which is now being collected all over the United States for the relief of the Hebrews of Kishenev, Russia, where great outrages have recently been com mitted. The following committee has been appointed to take charge of the work : A. Marcus, Philip ?orak and A. Frankel. Mr. Marcus is the treasurer of the committee and any person who feels disposed to help the fund along may do so by sending a check or money to him. When the money is all collected it will be added to the great general fund of $30,000 which has already been colleoted. It is hoped to make it at least $100,000 be fore it is sent to the relief. The subject was discussed at the meeting of the Young Men's Associa tion and they felt that Perth Amboy should assist in the work of raising money as well as other cities. It was thought that no organization was tioUnr equipped to undertake the work than themselves and aocordinglv the committee was appointed. The mem bers are very modest in their desires and now fix their hopes upon raising $100. The cause for which this money is being raised is well known through out the world. The press of all countries has been filled with the deeds perpetrated upon an innocent people. The Russians, of the Greek church, were celebrating and their hilarity reached such an extent that they rushed through the streets kill ing and torturing the Hebrews in the most horrible manner.

WATCHMEN ON VALLEY BOATS. Lehigh Company Determined to Keep Walking Delegates Away from Engineers. ALL TUCS 'WORKING. Although the Marine Benevolent Association will not admit that the strike among the tug boat engineers is over it seems to be so, especially in this city. The Lehigh Valley Rail road now has all its tngs at work and, according to all reports, they mean to keep them going. It is said a special man is aboard every tug to act as watchman. He has strict orders to allow no one aboard without a permit. When the strike among the tug boat engineers was first declared all of the local Le high Vallev tugs were tied up, but gradually they were put in commis sion until all were going. The walk ing delegate of the union could not understand it, but when they came to this oity in an effort to get non-union engineers to quit their jobs, they found they were not able to get any where near the boats on account of the watchmen. The only thing they could do was to get the engineers when they came ashore, and that is very seldom. Many non-union engi neers are willing to take jobs with the Lehigh Valley Railroad because the pay is good and the work steady.

The Board of Freeholders met at New Brunswick yesterday as a Committee of the Whole and heard disoussion for two hoars as to the best site for the Sooth Amboy approach to the new bridge across the Raritan. The board will decide at a meeting to be held next Wednesday as to '.he site to be selected. Mrs. Cornelia Foaratt was repre sented by George S. Silzer while Alan Benny, of Jersey Oity, a reared for the Wolff site. Three petitions were m presented by Mr. Benny for the Wolff site. They were signed by 100 persona of Sayreville and vioinity asking that this be the site ns it was more bene ficial for the purposes desired. Form er Freeholder De Graw presented a petition signed by 400 residents of South Amboy favoring the Foaratt approach as the one of greatest benefit to them. Mr. Benny said his signers represented half a million dollars worth of property including the Sayre & Fisher brio* firm. He argaed that the report of Bridge Engineer MoGann showed that the Wolff approach would cost |16,000 less than the other, that his was over high ground and the Fouratt mostly over marshy ground. Henry Wolff spoke for his own site and said the selection of his land would save the oounty $30,000 and he would give them a 60-foot roadway. John J. Qaaid favored the Wolff rite. Mr. De Graw deolared the Fouratt approach the better and that the entire cost of building on either approaoh would not exoeed $150,000. Freeholder Allgair thought the Wolff site ih^^etter? would permit- of tiff straighter and shorter. He s^pfeested ~ that the Board get the actual cost of both approaches and then deoide. Lawyer Silzer presented an argument for the Fouratt approaoh. The selec tion of the Wolff site would necessi tate the passing of the Fouratt land to get out of Savreville. He stood ready, he said, to give a bond for one who guaranteed to build the entire approach on the Fouratt site for $15,000 without competition. The Fouratt approaoh had been approved by Road Commissioner Budd and this would permit the county of getting one-third pay from the State for the road on the approaoh. Mr. Silzer declared, it Mb opinion, the Wolff approach could not be reached without going over the Fouratt bulk head line and this would oause diffi culty. Judge Hicks, who represented Mr. Wolff, urged the selection of the approaoh costing the least. The ques tion to be considered was the saving of money.
