Great nreparations are being made for
the meeting and the pastor, Rev. S.
T. Jackson, has prepared the follow
ing open letter to the public:
‘‘The poor ye have always with
you,’- should never be forgotten.
Some are weaK, some unfortunate,
some incapable, some aged, some
orphan's, and some are loyal mothers
who are working their very life’s
blood out for their children.
The winter is near, coal bins are
empty, no fruit is found in their cel
lar, the only hope of fire that they
have is a little wood the children have
gathered, the soles of their summer
shoes are worn and their little feet
are touching the ground and will
touch the bitter frost unless some kind
heart will open its door. Their coats
are through at the elbows and their
pants worn threadbare.
We never encourage dirt or laziness,
they are detrimental to any civili^tw
tion. But we do encourage the worthy
poor, we know tne joy of helping
those who are unable to nelp them
selves. Our friendship is to tide over
and help another to help himselt.
It has been our plan during our
ministry at this season of the year,
when God, the all kind feather, has
dealt so bountifully with us, that we
should share a portion with those who
are worthy, yet poor.
Our work is not confined to any
nationality, but to all who are really
in need. Let us make an offering to
Almighty God, remembering, that we
can gorify Him by lifting the burdens

Local Graduate Carries off Much
Conveted Honor at Ru'gers
Solomon Esberg, member of tlie
class 1903 P. A. H. S., has taken the
Sloan prize of $100 at Rutgers College.
This prize is awarded to the freshman
who receives the highest average in a
competitive examination of High
School subjects, at the end of the first
month of the term.
Mr. Esberg obtained the highest
average and was awarded the one
hundred dollars in cash. He is the
second of our High School graduates
to win this honor, John Stahr, ’02,
having taken this prize last year.
This Sloan prize is not to be con
fused with the free scholarship given
by the State. Nor is the scientific
scholarship to be confused with the
classical. The examinations for the
latter are much more severe than for
the former. Mr. Esberg won a free
scholarship in the classical course and
in the examination at the end of the
last month he took the prize which
every freshman works for to his
utmost ability. The news of this suc
cess was heartily received at the High
School this morning. Perth Amboy
is gaining quite a name through her
capable High School graduates.
•After Miss Vaughan had announced
thisvnew success this morning she
madq a short address to the students.
Her Skim was to impress upon the
classed the value of the High School
diplomiKand why it was so worth
while obtaining. A graduate from
our High School can enter many lead
ing colleges without any preliminary
examinations. Here are some of the
nearest institutions: Rutgers, Ober
lin,;Lafajet.te, Trenton Normal and
Albany T ormal. A diploma from this

Strong, yesterday, refused to increase
the number of licensed places in Dnn

would grant a license for a bottling

George 8. Silzer, who was due at
Armory Hall to call the Democratic
convention together, succeeded in
having his case taken up first so that
he could get down and get to work.
All of the applications in which he is
interested were laid over until Octob
er 19. He represents the application
of the Port Reading Hotel, near
Bound Brook, against which there has
been a strong protest.
Alfred S. March has the distinction
of representing the only successful
applicant yesterday. George. W. Mor
gan, his client, received a license to
keep a hotel at Carteret avenue and
Woodbridge road, Woodbridge town
ship. The application was endorsed
by all of the large manufactories in
that locality and Mr. Morgan repre
sents some of the concerns. The
manufacturers want to control the
liquor industry as well as the manu
facturing industry so tnat their men
will not be drawn away from their
homes to get drink.
Judge Strong said that he believed
that the granting of that application
would conduce to the public good.
Judge Strong was also about to
grant a license to a Pole at Melrose,
when Lawyers Silzer and March inter
posed and held that they represent an
applicant, Jacob Detforil, who offers
better accommodations for the public,
right at the end of the Amboy bridge.
In spite of the protests of H. B. Cook,
counsel for the Pole, the application
was laid over until October 19.
