_ PERTH AMBOY, N. J.. WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 30 1903 SECOND EDITION
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

Frightened it All the More—Driver was
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
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

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

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
