Mayor and Members of the Board of Aldermen Visit Newark and Watch the Material Being Laid in One of the Thoroughfares There-Mayor Says the Pavement is One of the Best on Earth. - s Mayor Seaman, Alderman-at-Largc Bckort, nnd Aldermen Toft, Runyon and Gannon saw the Warren Bithnlitic pavement being laid on Blocker Btreet, Newark, yesterday. As stated in yes terday’s News, the mayor invited the Board of Aldermen to accompany him on a trip to inspect the pavoment which is being advocated for Rector street. The city fathers were met in New nrk by J. C. Mundy, Superintendent of the Board of Works. Representa tives of tho company were also on hand. The local men were taken to the street nnd they watched tho pro cess of putting down the material. Thev saw a test made. A man was set to work to cut out a square of about three feet. It took him an hour and a half to make an excavation three inches deep. This tonghness of the pavement would make it a very difficult and expensive matter to take up, onoe it is laid. The maror, when asked what he thought of tho pavement, said: “It is tho best on earth. One great point in its favor is that it is right in New ark where anyone can see it, not way out in Wisconsin. ” He thinks it would make a lino material for Rector street. Tho aldermen were all much pleased also. Some of them were surprised to find a road which has all the appearanoe of macadam. They ex pected to see a smooth dark surface. One thinks it may prove to be dusty. Nothing is known of the durability of the bitlmlitic, but the Perth Amboy delegation were nmcli pleased with what they have seen. NEW BRUNSWICK GOT $3,500 AS ONE GIFT. Anonymous Giver Believed to be Father O’Grady Pastor cf St. Peter s Parish. New Brunswick, Deo. 1:—There is much speculation among tho members of St. Peter’s parish, as to the identi ty of the friond or friends who cave anonymously nearly $3,000 toward the special fund raised by tho ehurch in a recent competition with the churches of Perth Amboy and South Amboy. Tho acknowledged contributions pub lished, footed up only $8,700, lmt the total amount of the fund raised by tho clmrch was $7,200. St. Peter’s won by a large margin, but South Arnbov raised $4,500, so that if it had not been for tho large addition made anonymously St. Peter’s would have been beaten. It is believed Mgr. O’Grady, tho rector of tho ohuroli, was the largest anonymous contributor. Two years ago, when he celebrated his silver jnbilce, he wns presented with a parse of $2,500. Practically all of this ho has tnrned back to the clmrch for parochial purposes. Hnylor’s bon bons and chocolates. Sexton’s Drug Store, sole agency. 11-20-1 Elect Officers Tonight.
