Date is Fixed..Will Appeal to the Board of Health to take Ac. tion m the Dust Nuisance. .City Attorney Hommann's Opinion. The Chamber of Commeroe held a meeting in the office of the Central Electric Company 's buildinsr last nieht during which it was decided to invite the municipal authorities, including the Mayor, Board of Aldermen, Water Superintendent and the Street Com missioner. to go with them on an outing to Long Branch on June 11. The municipal authorities upon this occasion will be the guestfc of the Chamber of Commerce. It v&s'pointed out that the chamber and the aldermen are working hand in hand for the improvement of Perth Amboy and the chamber wants to show its appreciation by giving the city fathers an outine by the sea. Long Branch is a well-kept city and is thoroughly up-to-date in munioipal improvements. At the meeting last nieht the deci sion of City Attorney Hommann upon the subject of street improvement was discussed. Mr. Hommann is quoted as saying that macadam roads, such as Smith and State street, are not con sidered a pavement and therefore it cannot be improved under the law suggested by the Chamber of Com merce. The legislative committee were authorized to consider the deci sion. The dust nuisance upon our main thoroughfares cropped up next and was disoussed at length. It suggested that the Board of Health, which seems to be doing nothing these days, and which has more power than any other munioipal organization in town, might be induced to take some action in this matter. It developed that the citizens and merchants are willing to pay for the sprinkling, but since the superin tendent of the water department has forbidden the sprinkling of the streets, nothing apparently c ould be done. The members said if it conld only bp done good once a day they would be glad to pay for it. The Board of Health will be urged to do something to relieve the situation from a health point of view.
