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.

Citizens Agreed that City Should
Own the Westminster
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. ”
Officials of the Road Declare
the Shut Down is only to /
Clean up.
The Lehigh Valley Railroad Com
pany will close all its colliories on
Saturday of this week and on Monday
of next week. In explanation it was
said yesterday that the closing will
permit the oleaning of the collieries.
The officers of tne road also wish to
utilize for coal traffic a large number
of box cars now in Buffalo and New
York and these cars will reaoh the
mines during the shutdown. It is
stated that there is no overproduction,
'but the abnormal demand which suc
ceeded the coal strike has gotten down
to something like normal again.
As has been told in the News the
local yards of the Lehigh Valley have
been stocked to their fullest capacity.
Likewise the yard at South Plainfield
is filled and an extra storage is being
completed near Easton. For many
weeks the work on the docks has been
slack, but although the collieries
close, the shipping will net necessar
ily cease, owing to the supply of coal
on hand.

when at 8.15 o’clock Miss Alma
Garben became the bride of Clifford
Woglom, both of this city. The cere
mony was performed by Rev. S. T.
Jackson, pastor of Simpson M. E.

best man was Forrest L. Smith, consin
of the groom. The bride wore a gown
of white liberty silk trimmed with
costly lace and she carried a bonqnet
of chrysanthemums. The brides
maid’s dress was of the same material
and her bouquet was of roses. The
house was beautifully decorated in
golden rod, and green with white.
The ceremony was performed under a
canopy of golden rod and green.

some lime they awoke to the fact
they were being fooled and the gather
ing marched in a body to 205 Water

in their new home. Much merriment
