FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1903.
Mnvor Seaman's opinion of tho city
charter bb published yesterday, is
worthy of much consideration. He
says that nine-tenths of tho provisions
in the charter have boen changed by
subsequent legislation and what is
left is not worth much. The mayor
is right. The charter is a usoless
document and only serves to confuse
For a stranger who lias never Jbecn
to Perth Amboy to read tho charter
and then visit the city, ho would not
recognize it. Tho charter was ap
proved March 17,1870 and amended by
a supplement approved April 5, 1871.
To show how utterly out of dato it
is we quote a few of its provisions
which have long since been discarded.
i — In the it provides for

of the Mayor. Among tlie powers of

Victor Herbert (ioeti to Xctv York.
PITTSBURG. Doe. 1.—.Tunics I. Buch
anan, chairman of the Carnegie Insti
tute orchestra committee, makes pub
lic the fact that Victor Herbert will
sever his connection with the Pittsburg
orchestra at the close of the present
season. March 19, 1904. The commit
tee expressed much regret over his ac
tion.hut unanimously tendered him their
gratitude for tin1 splendid work lie has
accomplished with the Pittsburg or
chestra. Upon Ids retirement Mr. Her
bert will make New York city his fu
loons and no other license granted by
any other body shall be lawful.
Regarding the poll tax tho charter
provides that every male resident over
tho age of twenty-ono shall be assess
ed $2 as a poll tax.
The assessor must mako ont a list of
the children capablo of attending
school between five nud eighteen
yenrs of ngc. The assessor gets $2 for
every 100 names thus enrolled, and by
his roll the city shall get its jU6t
share of the State appropriation. Ac
cording to tho charter the treasurer,
colluotor of revenue, city clerk, city
marshal, overseer of tho poor, city
surveyor, street commissioner, and
pound keeper shall be appointed
annually by the mayor and counoil.
All of thoBO provisions are different
now and an ordinance is now on its
second reading to ,'mnko tho term of
the latter offices threo years. While
theso have been chanced thoro are
other provisions ill the chnrter which
liavo not been affected yet which are
i\ ilimr.t 11 i mlrnimn fn flin ftrnrmiBB nf
rihe oily. Now tlmt Perth Amboy is
! soon to get (-bo benefit of her increased
I valuations and will take some great
strides forward in the lino of muni
cipal improvement, would it not bo a
wise thing to begin at the bottom and
| either have tho old charter repealed
and rejected or have’a new one drawn'.'
At present it is a handicap. As is
hero shown it is practically useless as
far as city government is concerned
and it only serves as a stumbling block
for things which aro desired and
should be done
