The engineer made the suggestion that the board have a sidewalk laid on the bridge and icebreakers placed at all the bends in the bridge instead of at' the main channel as provided in the original contract. The matter of expending more money for the bridge was opposed by Freeholder DeHart. He said it had been first said that the bridge would not cost more than $150,000 and already $18,000 additional had been authorized expended “for hard to tell what.” He thought it better to let one winter pass with out ice-breakers than spend more money at this time. This ended the bridge discussion. The board decided to re-advertise for bids for the several county roads recently irregularly advertised for as stated in yesterday’s News. On motion of Freeholder Oox it was de cided to investigate the matter of county banks not paying interest on county money. The Finance Com mittee’s report showed a balance August 3 of $69,673.85. Freeholder Jensen reported the re ceiving of bids for the county bridge < i * _n_4.1_-i 4. LU Uo UUUDll UUbOU V TOl ovavivv in Perth Amboy, and the contract was awarded to Andrew K.

They were willing to pay $3,000 to strength en the bridge and $5 a month for a bridgetender. In ten years they would pay half the cost of a new bridge. He asked for a hearing on August 26. The board will meet at the bridge at 2 o’clock Monday afternoon to con sider the matter. Application was also made for the right of way over the road to Laurence Harbor and a hearing will be given on this on August 26. Lawyer Frederick Weigel asked for a franchise for the American Tele phone Company to lay its lines over the Amboy bridge. On motion of Freeholder Glenn this matter was re fjrredtothe bridge committee with power. WASHINGTON HOSE MEETING.

Commodore Evans appointed Conrad Hall, William Crowell, and Nathaniel Pierce a com mittee to represent tne cud on tne joint committee which will have entire charge of the fete. It is proba ble that Mayor O. K. Seaman, Will iam Staoey and S. B. Morgan will represent the citizens together with vacht clnb members just named. They have full power to select sub committees, elect officers and complete arrangements and manage the whole affair. They will hold a meeting to night and get the movement started. The first thing this committee will do after electing officers and appoint ing its sub-committees, will be to solicit funds for the carnival. In this they look to the citizens, business men and all residents of the com munity. It is the wish of those in charge that financial aid be given quickly and liberally. While no definite date has yet been fixed, it will probably be held early in Septem ber and it is realized that there is no time to be lost. The yacht club members also approved the action of the trustees in donating $25 for the carnvial. I his, together with the $24.90 whicli was left over from last year’s fete, makes a good start. To this sum the Even ing Nows will add $10, bringing the total, at present, up to $09.90. With this in the funds the collectors will soon sally forth and it is expected* the merchants will respond liberally. SLACK WORK ON , THE DOCKS NOW. Repairs Being Made to B.

There were boats to be filled and gotten away and so much work to be done that it was almost impossible for an emnloye to get even a half day on Sunday. Now this has suddenly stopped. The orders are that as B dock is in need of repair the men will work only three days a week. A gang is at work making ex tensive repairs on this dock. CLAM BAKE AT SEA BREEZE.

Cuban X Giants is the Famous Negro Team —Orange will be here Tuesday While on Saturday is the All-Cuban Game - Three big Attraction—Marions May go to New Brunswick. Another strong team has been added to the schedule of the Marions, tne Cuban X-Giants being booked to appear here on Saturday of next week, following Orange. This is news that will delight the fans as the famous negro team has not appeared here since 1901. Efforts were made to lirintr them here last season, but they were booked solid. This morning a telogram was received from Mr. Lamar stating that a cancelation left him with Angast 15 open and the date was at once closed with the Marions. The Cuban X-Giants, besides being the highest priced travelling attrac tion, are also the champion colored players. They are famous coachers, fast fielders and slashing hitterB. Among those who form the team whose names are familiar the country over are Clarence Williams, “Pop” Grant, Hill, the third baseman and McClellan, the pitcher. They are now playing at Atlantic City where yesterday they defeated the strong team of that place 2 to 0. The addition of the Cuban X-Giants to the schedule, pits the Marions against three of the strongest teams hereabout. Saturday the All Cabans will be here, the Orange fol lows on Tuesday and after them on Saturday the Cuban X-Giants. Another game is also in the process of negotiation, New Brunswick being anxious to have the Marions play at the County seat next Thursday. The locals are willing and if Nexv Bruns wick puts up the price there will be a game. The Marions have decided that on next Tuesday, season tickets will not be good for admission. This was forced on the management, it is claimed, because the expenses at the recent Orange game far exceded the receipts and also because this game was added to the schedule and not regularly placed thereon.

Butchers Declare that Beef has Gone up one Cent a Pound and they May Soon Follow. REASON IS UNKNOWN. Wholesalers Ask More aid There is Noth ing to do but Pay it—Unusual for Prices to be Raised At This Time— Less Meat Being Bought this Year Fish Plentiful and Eggs Cheap. The wholesale beef dealers all over the country have raised the price of beef one cent a pound. So far the local dealers have not raised the price to their customers, but they expect to do so very shortly. A prominent butcher of this city, in conversation with a News reporter this morning, said : “Yes, the price of beef has been raised by the wholesalers to the butch ers. Why it has been done, no one seems to know for this is the time of year when the price generally goes down instead of up. We have not raised the prices vet, but I am afraid we will have to do so very shortly. ” In speaking of the amount of beef that people are using this year the butcher said: “I have been in the business a number of years and I find that this summer the people are buving a great deal less meat than ever before. The cause of this is that fish is so plenti ful and cheap, while eggs are not high.” TOO MANY FIGURES. Alderman Held Special Meeting but did not Award Contracts for Fire Apparatus. BIDS FOR HOUSES. A special meeting of the Board of Aldermen was neio last mgni. xne purpose, as annonnced, was to con sider the bids for fire apparatus and award the contract. 'This, however, was found to be too mucli of a task. There are so many figures on different kinds of apparatus that the aldermen could not finish and the matter was not taken up in ooen meeting at all. The executive session lasted for more than an hour. The contract for lurnishing valves for the water main was awarded to the Rensselaer Manufacturing Com pany, being the lowest bidder. The bids for erecting the two fire houses will be opened at the next regular meeting of the board. The date to meet the tax assessors was changed to August 18. The board will meet again tomorrow night to open bids for the $80,000 water bonds. A number of firemen were present last night, but they were disappointed. I | WE want!
