FOUNDATION OF NEW.
DRAWBRIDGE BEING , TESTED WfTH IRON. Doubt has Been Expressed as to Whether or not The Masonwork in The River will Support The Iron Structure—To Ascertain for » a Cert amity Pig Iron is Being Piled on The Foundation-Work h Watched With Much Interest. Today the contractor, who is build ing the new Raritan river bridge, has a gang of laborers at work unloading 450 tons of pig iron which is being placed on the foundation for the • y draw. Of late a great deal of discus i , sion has been caused by the manner ! in which the foundation for the draw if has been built. Several persons are m of the opinion that when the draw is Sf placed the foundation would sink in ¥ the mud, because of its weight, and f it would be impossible to use it and that if the draw should evei commenoe to sink nothing could stop it. The authorities would then be compelled to remove the drawbridge and rebuild the foundation. The contractor has been ordered to put the pig iron of the same weight l as the draw, on the foundation. If it ^ holds this without damage, the work l will proceed, but if it sinks, it will be up to tne contractor to reuuuu n. At noon today 150 tons have been placed on the foundation and the rest will be put on as rapidly as possible. The pig iron comes here from New York in box cars, it is unloaded from the cars to the pile driver and taken out to the foundation where it is placed in piles of fiftv tons each. The work on both ends of the bridge is getting along nicely and will soon be finished. ENTERED HOUSEAND DEMANDED FOOD. James Walgensen, of Morristown, and Ed.

Citizens Agreed that City Should Own the Westminster Property. LET ALDERMEN ACT. When seen by an Evening News re porter this morning concerning the purchase of the Westminster, some of the citizens were not inclined to dis cuss tfe proposed purchase, they de clared they were willing to let the oity officials do what they thought, having confidence that they would do the right thing. Postmaster George H. Tice says: “To purchase the Westminster would be a grand idea providing the city had the money necessary. If the city had that amount of money re quisite to buy the Westminster, I think that the streets should have the first consideration. Our streets should oome first. Parks will follow. If we have good thoroughfares, more people will come and we will have more money to spend on a park.” Dr. William P. Keasbey makes the following statement: “It would be a good thing to seoure the Westminster. I prefer to have it purchased outright if the city can do so, when it has the money. ” Samuel G. Garretson thinks it would be an excellent thing for the city to own the property, but the manner of seouring it remains a question. “I think,” said Mr. Garretson, “the city should own the place, but it would be necessary to spend money there to put it in repair. There is no question but that the city should own tne place. The right way would be for the Brnens to make it a donation. ” LEHICfTCLOSE COLLIERIES.
