VOL. XXV. NO. 42 PERTH AMBOY, N. J.. SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 26 1903 SECOND EDITION
DESIRE IS TO Sk‘ VE
THE OLD BUILDING.
Chamber of Commerce would Secure the Old Structure and Land
Enough to Erect a School House—Would Take all the Property,
but the Mansion is First Object-- Finus the Building is not
! Suited for a School House.
Last evening a committee from the
Chamber of Commerce and the School
Commissioners met in the parlors of
the Presbyterian church to talk over
the Westminster question. The idea
favored was to see Mr. Bruen and to
secure, if possible, a plot of land about
200 feet sqpare bordering on State
street, Harrison place and Kearny
avenue, if the latter should be ex
tended. This piece of ground will
take in the old mansion. It is argued
that that part of the city demands a
now enlinnl nnrl If In lirnnflNpd. if the I
land is secured, to erect a school
The committee will see Mr. Bruen
some time in the next two weeks and
some definite end will be reached.
Just at present, however, it is not
known positively what will come of
the matter. The attempt to get that
part of ground containing the old
mansion will be made and if it is
possible to seoure more of the pro
perty, it will be done, if not, the re
mainder will probably be cut up into
building lots and sold. It is not like
ly the old building will, if purchased,
be used for school purposes because,
the changes necessary would cost
nearly as much as a new building.
From the conversation last night, it
was evident that the committeo had
not taken the park idea into considera
tion and would not until they could
see tneir way clear to raise the money
to make the purchase. The main
object of the committee, at present,
is to seoure the building proper and
enough land upon which to erect a

BOTH TRACKS BLOCKED.
For a short time this morning all
traffic on both tracks of the Contral
railroad in this city were tied up be
cause a box oar jumping the track
near the freight station.
At 7 o’clock this morning a big
train of loaded cars was being pulled
up the grade from the bridge when a
heavy ice car, loaded, broke a draw
head and was thrown completely on
When the train, due here from Long
Brandi at 7.07, whioh takes the busi
ness men to ^Tew York, arrived, it
was stalled for over half an hour.
The crews of both trains finally suc
ceeded in moving one end of the car
so that one track could be used, and
all trains running in both directions,
were compelled to use this track until
10 o’clock, when the wrecker had re
paired the wrecked car.

many years ago.

Foreman Gunn, at St. Mary’s new
Roman Catholic church, Center and
Mechanic streets, was settled yester
day afternoon, when the mason, whc
first went out on strike, secured the
tools and left town.
At a meeting held in the Adelaide
building, the other night, the stone
maBons stated their trouble to tne
local brick masons union, and the
delegate called off all the masons and
helpers until the trouble was settled.
The first stone masons claimed that
when they were paid for the Iasi
week they worked, they had received
but $3.50 a day of eight nours, when
they should have received $3.60. The
local union backed them up and when
they received what was coming tc
them this morning, they left town.
Other stone masons front Paterson,
who will receive the union scale ol
wages, were put to work this morn
ing. The trouble, it is believjd, is ai
an end, and the work will eon
tinue without interruption.

LAST PILING FOR \

WAS DRIVEN TODAY.

--Iron is all on The Foundation and The Test is Successful
' Monday it will be Removed and The Structural Iron Workers
will Begin Erection of The Bridge.
Strikes Throughout the Country
Said to be the Cause-Men
are Laid Off.
FOR SHORT TIME.
Work in all the local terra cotta
plants seems to be very slack ar pres
ent. In some of the places men have
been laid off. Just what the cause is,
: no one seems to know, but the men
hope that business will soon pick up.
Most of the factories seem to have
p'enty of work to do, nut it seems
hard to get enough material on hand
to do the work with. The recent
strikes all over the country have put
everything in the building and manu
facturing line away back so that the
demand for material is so great that
it cannot be supplied. The buildings
demanding terra cotta in the cities
have been delayed so that they are
not ready for it.
At 10.45 o’clock this morning the
last piling for the new Karitan river
bridge was driven. The last of the
pig iron will be on the fonndation
some time this afternoon. 4k The
fonndation has stood the test well and
there is now no doubt as to the safety
of the bridge in the minds of the con
tractor and the people who had an
idea that the foundation was not all
it should be.
Mon‘lay morning the work of re
moving the pig iron will be com
menced and as soon as this is finished,
the work of placing the draw will be
started. This will take some little
