Basket Ball and Football Games Played Saturday on Enclosed
Grounds—High School Girls Basket Ball and Show Perth
i Amboy Audience What Game is Like-Colors and Cheers
Make an Enthusiastic Meet.
A Perth Amboy crowd, interested
in athletics, was treated to something
brand new Saturday when they saw a
game of basket ball for the first time.
It was plaved by two teams selected
from the girls of the High School.
After the basket ball game the High
School football team defeated a team
from the New Brunswick High School
by a score of 11 to 0.
The grounds were well filled at an
early hoar. High school colored
banners, flags and ribbons were in
overy place. Yells were given and
the High School song was sung with
much vigor. At a little after three
the opposing sevens, atiired in white
sweaters, short skirts and tennis slip
pers, strode daintily npon the field.
There were dignified Seniors, vivac
t ions Juniors, jolly Sophomores and
k loquacious Freshmen in that fourteen.
Ik One side wore red ribbons across the
8 front of their sweaters and was cap
I tlined by Rose Biume. The other
wore blue ribbons and was led by
Jonnie Brogger. At the knock off the
ball traveled toward the blue’s goal
and in this territory most of the first
half was fought out. The reds tried
hard to bring it to their basket, but
were unable to score.
Almost as W. A. Belcher, timekeep
er, was about to call time, Miss
Brogger made a basket for her team
and a chorus of Oh’s and Ah’s went
up for the blues. The half lasted 10
The goal posts were pulled up and
the fooball warriors lined up for their
game. Hanson kicked off and New
Brunswiok took to the center of the
field. After a few downs, Perth Am
boy was given ten yards, New Bruns
wick being offside. Amboy then ob
tained possession of the ball on downs
. and lost it for being unable to take it
the required five yards,
Tlie ball thus ohanged sides without
going more than 15 yards toward
either goal, so evenly were the teams
matched. When the whistle blew
neither side had scored.
Now came the last of the basketball
and a grand finish it was. The reds
oame out determined to even the score
£ aud nobly they worked to that end.
^_*Miss Brogger made another basket,
jj^k,then back went the ball to the other
goal and Gertrude Pfeiffer scored for
the red.
A After this came two more goals fot
^F Fie blue anu even though the other
s iven strove to their utmost they weri
.not able to even the score and it stood
to 2 at the end of this half, which
listed ten minutes.
The last half of the football game

was the battle royal. Brunswick
kicked off and then Amboy played,
gradually, but nevertheless surely,
the home team carried the ball to
their goal. Finally Wight went over
the line for a touchdown.
The attempt to kick goal failed.
The ball was again kicked off [.and
Brunswick took it. After several
attempts to break the home team’s
defense, they punted. A few more
downs, neither side gaining or losing
much, then by brilliant play, Wight
went through the line for a 40 yard
run to goal. This time goal was kick
ed and score stood 11-0 in Amboy’s
favor. Following was the lineup:

Grace English Lutheran Church
Receive Many new Member
«t Yesterday s Services.
Very impressive services were held
in Grace Lutheran church yesterday
morning. Holv communion was ad
minstered, wnen forty-five communed
At this service two more were con
firmed, making a total of ten adults
who were confirmed this fall into the
Lutheran church.
But still a greater surprise was in
store for the congregation when the
pastor read off the names of seventeen
persons who joined by letter of dis
missal or by profession of faith. As
these persons stood around the plat
form, receiving the congratulations
of the church, one could not but Bay
that goo i results are emanating from
the hard and indefatigable work of
the pastor.
If the inorease continues at this
rate, the English Lutheran church is
destined to become quite a factor in
this oommunity.
The following were elected officers

The turning down of William D.
Voorhees for comptroller by the
Democrats at their convention Satur
day night, has raised a storm of pro
test througnont the city. Many
Democrats are thoroughly exercised
about the matter and there is now a
strong feeling to nominate Mr. Voor
hees on an independent ticket. The
scheme is to endorse all the demo
cratic nominees with the exception of
comptroller, placing Mr. Voorliees’
name there. Snch a nomination can
be made by a .petition of .100 voters
and it is said nearly that many Demo
crats have signified their willingness
to sign snch a petition.

At 11 o’clock yesterday morning W.
L. Morse and Dennis Donovan had a
narrow escape at the New Brunswick
avenue crossing of the Central rail
road, where they were nearly hit by p
freight train. S
Both men were in a laundry wagon
and were driving ^across the Central
tracks, a box car being on the track
in such a way that it obstructed the
view. As there was no gateman on
duty, it being Sunday, the men drove
on the tracks. Jnst as they were in
the middle the freight came upon
them. Mr. Morse, who was driving,
nad no time to pull the horse out of
the way, the freight was running
slowlv and the engine was stopped
just aR it hit the shafts of the wagon.
The horse was bruised a little, but the
men were thankful to escape with
their lives.

* The Democratic city convention
sprung a surprise Saturday night in
fixing their ticket for the coming
election. Their nominations are as
follows: Alderman-at-Large, Adam
Eckert; comptroller, Hugh Timmins;
Commissioners of Appeal, Thomas
j Laugau, Martin Momberg and William
' Buchanan ; for Excise Commissioners,
■ Chris Meshrow, Soren Olsen, James
J. Garland, John J. Clark and Patrick
That the conference wnich was held
before the convention was not entire
ly harmonious was evident when the
delegates did not make their appear
ance until after 9 o'clcok. There was
a small number of citizens on hand to
hear the result, but the enthusiasm
was about equal to that at the Repub
lican city convention.
It is understood that the caucus was
prolonged in an effort to get William
D. Voorhees renominated for comp
troller. One of the delegates said the
fight was hard and long, but that a
younger element * prevailed and they
wasted Mr. Timmins. There was
also some objection to the Excise
Commissioners as named. James J.
Garland is a saloonkeeper and it was
argued that a saloonkeeper should not
be pet on the Excise Board, but the
majority thought differently and ..his
name lfelit down.

to order and Richard M. White was
made chairman and George M. Adair
was elected secretary. The nomina

and the convention adjourned within
a few minutes. It was noticed the

one voted in the negative and the
candidates were all declared the reg
