VOL. II NO. 280 PERTH AMBOY, N. J.. SATURDAY, JUNE 27. 1903. SECOND EDITION INSPECTED FERR \ YESTERDA Y; STILL FA VOR FA YETTE ST. Staten Island Railroad Officials Visited Perth Amboy and Although an Offer has been Made for them to Stay at Foot of Smith Street, They are still Determined to move Unless too Many Protests are Received? Dislike the Smith Street Grade. Tho News oil Wednesday published exclusively the announcement of the Stateu Island Railroad Company's in tention of making many improvements including that of changing the present ferry slip at the foot of Smith street to tho foot of Fayette street. Today the News is authorized to repeat that assertion without fear of contradic tion. It has also been stated positive ly bv tho same authority that the Staten Island Railroad has not accent ed nor purchased any land at or near the foot of Smith street, owned by George Evans, as some are inclined 1 to boliove. C. S. Simms, general manager, and James/Campbell, assistant manager for tho Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, which controls the Staten Island system, and Mr. Randolph, tho now general manager and vice president of thn Staten Island Railroad, were in this city yesterday for the purpose of looking over the ground. They view ed with considerable interest the ground surrounding the proposed chango at the foot of Fayette whore they already have options on certain laud. They also looked over the sur roundings of the present slip, and when th<ie gentlemen left they wore very much in favor of the tayette street site oil account of its low grade. The only objection tho officers of the road nave to the present slip is the Smith street hill. As to the reported sale of tho land at the foot of Smith street, Mr. Evans this morning said : "I have not and do not want to sell any of my land around here and I can't understand how any one can say that I have when I don't know it my self." Further than this Mr. EvanB refused to talk. It was learned elsewhere, I however, that a man, presumably Mr. Evans and two other prominent busi ness men, who came to this city over the Central railroad, went to New York on Thursday where Mr. Evans was induced to offer to sell his pro perty t? the Staten Island road as an r** inducement to keep the ferry at the foot of Smith street. This much was admitted by an official of the road, but as already stated, that official de nied the reported acceptance and pur chase of the property on the part of his company. Here, this official said, the matter will rest for ajivhile to see what tho peoplo of Perth Amboy want. If there are too many protests from the 7 jsinoss men on Smith stroet the pro babilities are that no change will be mado at Smith street. On tho other t hand if there are no protests, or the ' protests are overbalanced bv rpquests, the change will be made to the toot of Fayette street. Protests were made several years ago by the Smith street merchants and the proposed change was then aband oned. Since that time the conditions have changed. Then there were only a handful of merchants doing business 1 no further up Smith than State street. Today there is a trolley company to taken into consideration. By run ning the loop, as outlined in the News, this would brina the travelling publio up Smith street just the same. Thon there are the State street mer chants whose opinions will have to be taken into consideration in making jr ' 2 proposed ohange. ML No objections have yet been hoard Bin Perth Amboy, but in Tottenville ^ there are some opposed to the change, but tho publio generally in that town to date do not believe the ohange will ever occur In their day as it is said tho railroad company have been talk |g? ing about the change for some time.

Oysters Planters in Those Waters Are Happy this Season Much Damage Last Year Tuckerton oyster planters are re lieved to find that the drum fish have not this year entered their bay and disturbed their oysters. Last .year Tuckerton planters bought heavily of Long Island Sound seed from Long Island and Connecticut. They had just about got through with their planting, when along came great hordes of drumfish, and in two week's time, 150,000 worth of seed oysters were destroyed. The drum were final ly driven out by dynamite, the fish being driven by nets and boats to the channels where mines had been laid and great numbers of them were kill ed by the explosions. This year they have not returned, and the planters hope that the dyna mite treatmont has driven them away for good. Some planters fear their selt con gratulations over the non return of I the drum, may be too early, as the I cold weather may have kept the drum !back. No channel bass have been caught at any of the usual fishing places for that gamy monster as yet this summer, and they will average about Juno 10th for their coming.
