_ PERTH AMBOY, N. J.. WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 30 1903 SECOND EDITION LOCAL POLITICS BUZZING AMONG THE DEMOCRATS. *— Everybody Interested in Who will be Nompd for Alderman-at-Large -.Several Men Suggested but Slatei has not yet been Fixed Sufficiently to Name Date for Convention—Adam Eckert, John Donohue and William D. Voorhees Names Mentioned. While the Democrats are giving a great deal of attention to county politics just now, the local situation is not being neglected and no little interest centers in the selection of a man to run against John Pfeiffer Jr., the Republican nominee for Alder man-at-large. Several names have been mentioned, but it i« quite evident no slate has yet been fixed. John Donehue, the former school commissioner, has been mentioned quite prominently of late. Mr. Done hue pollen a big vote when he ran for the school board and those who favor him claim he could beat Pfeiffer. He is said to have a strong backing. The names of Adam Eckert and William Voorhees have also been mentioned. It is understood that Mr. Eckert, who has already served two terms as alnerman-at-large, is willing to take the nomination again, if the party wants to give it to him. An effort is being made to have him renominated. It is claimed that he is the best man for the place and has made a fearless and determined presiding offioer for the council. Those who are suggest ing other names than Mr. Eckert are afraid the labor vote will be against him'because of his action on the ordi nance to regulate labor employed by the city. It is also pointed out that there has been considerable talk about one-man power in council of late and this would help to defeat him. Mr. Eckert’s friend’s, however, claim that these features will be more of an assistance to him than a detri ment because it shows he has a mind of his own and is fearless in doing urhaf ho liolinvofi tfl hft fftr thfi interest of the city. It is argned that the city needs a man of Mr. Eckert’s ability, as a presiding officer of the council, and if the Democrats will nominate him he will be a winner. When Mr. Voorhees’ name is men tioned for alderman-at-large the question always follows, whom will you put up for comptroller? It is ad mitted by both Democrats and Repub licans that Mr. Voorhees has filled that office with exceptional ability. The Democrats argue* that he is also capable of pre iding at the council meeting. It seems to bo pretty gener ally admitted that Mr. Voorhees should receive the nomination for comptroller and some of those who want to cater to the labor vote ad vance Mr. Donehue’s name for alder man-at-large. The latter, iiowever, will not be named in place of Mr. Eckert without a determined effort to beat the present alderman’s friends. As Perth Amboy has no mayor to elect thft fall the principal interest centers in the alderman-at-large. Several of the wards, however, are [ * having a little match of their own which prevents politics from getting dull. ■ We have just started to • manufacture our own Cough Drop and Horehound Cough Candy. . . .

FENCE WAS BROKEN. Horse Started Off While Driver had Stopped in Place—Wagons Badly Wrecked Efforts to Stop the Animal Seemed to Frightened it All the More—Driver was Thrown Out. A horse belonging to John Buchner, of 209 Oak .street, took fright at a passing object while standing in front of a store at the corner of Stamford street, at 5 o’clock yesterday. As he ran he broke down a fence around a vacant lot on Stamford street and completely tore off the two rear wheels of Morris & Klein’s butcher wagon, which was coming in the opposite direction. Yesterday afternoon one of the drivers for John Bnehner, a bottler, left the shop on Oak street, witn a wagon load of birch beer. The first stop was made at the new saloon at Stamford and Fayette streets. While the driver was inside delivering a box of the beer, the horse became fright ened and started off. He went down Stamford street on a gallop. A number of men tried to stop the animal, but this seemed to frighten him all the more. He ran up on the sidewalk, and the wagon caught the end of a fence. The crash sent bottles of birch beer flying in all directions. Even this did not stop the horse. As the runaway swung into Prospect street, around from Fayette, the butcher wagon was coming in the opposite direction and before the driver could get out of the way, the wagons came together. The driver of the butcher wagon was thrown out, but escaped with but slight bruises. The beer wagon was baldy wrecked. The runaway was stopped before it could get away from the wreck.

Report that the Smelter would Probably Be Taken to Mexico is not Credited by Local Men - Declare that Mo e Work than Ever Before Will Keep this Plant Busy. There is every indication that the plant of the American Smelting & Refining Company, in this city, will be even busier than ever before from now on. It is denied by those in authority that there is any probability of the smelter being moved to Mexico as was reported in a dispatch from Texas. According to the information learn ed by a representative of the Evening News, the line of steamships between this port and Chili, South America, will now he kept in constant operation and the ore which this line brings will be smelted here. The new addi tions have recently been completed and the work has increased with it. It will be remembered that the dis patch said ttiat while the trust would build smelters in Mexico, it was also to invest large sums of money in mines. It is pointed ont that the in creased work these mines will make will necessitate either more smelters or enlarging the ones already in opera tion. Be this as it may, it is assured that the big smelter on Staten Island sound will not leave Perth Amboy, bnt that instead, it will probably be drawing more men here by its in CRAND JURY HANDS IN 24 INDICTMENTS.
