PERTH AMBOY EVEN NO NEWS.
THE LARGEST PROVEN LOCAL CIRCULATION_ VOL. XXV. NO. 104. PERTH AMBOY, N. .1., THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1903. NIGHT EDITION WILL BEGIN WORKSOON. New Catholic Church for Itali ans'is an Assured Fact, it is Said. ABOUT 500 ITALIANS. A Plan is Suggested V/hercby Each Fai.ily Shall Give $5 Toward the Structure Site has been Selected but the Locat:on is Not Yet Made Kntwn—Future Plans. That the erection of a Catholic chnrch in this city for the Italians will commence very shortly, is now certain. It is snid that a representa tive of Bishop McFaul, of Trenton, lias seen a'number of the prominent Italians of this city, and that they one and all, have promised the Bishop to do all in their power to help the chnrch along. It is said that at the present time there are at least 500 Italians in Perth Amboy and if each fnmilv will give $5 toward the church, ns they have promised, it will make a good start. When Hans Neilson, of the firm of Neilson Bros., was seen by a News reporter this morning, he said that the chnrch would certainly bo bnilt. and that a lot had already been select ed by Iho leading Italians and that the terms of sale would be settled in about a month. When nsked in what part of the town the lot was, Mr. Neilson said at the present time he , was not at liberty to ten. i tie reason the Italians are asking for a new lionso of worship is because they do not understand the English language perfectly euongh to know what the priests of St. Mary’s ohnrnh, on Center street, are saying. With the | approval of the bishop, it will not tiko long to get things in order. OFFICERS ELECTED BY LUTHERAN CHURCH. Our Saviour’s Danish Lnthernu church elected several officers last night.

Superintendent Burns in an Interview Tells Some thing of the Water Department-Two Mains Will Have Several Connections on the South Side of the River in Case of Breaks. - « Tho now twonty-fonr inch water main which is at present laid from the standpipe at Runyon to Median - icsville, on tho south shore, will bo completely connected with the old main in about two weeks. This was told an Evening News reporter bv Superintendent J. G. Barns, of the Water department. Two woeks ago the water was slint off and one con nection mndo. The next two connec tions will be mnde together nnd will occasion an eight-hoar shut off. Tho last connection will be made witnont my shut off. About four miles of twentp-four inch pipe have been laid from the standpipe this side of Rnnyon to Me dianicsville. This will bo connected to the sixtoen-iuch main which runs direct y from the water wcrks to Perth Amboy. The connections, when com pleted, will be at the stand pipe at Meclinnicsville and two inhtervening places a little more than one mile apart. These four connections are to insure safely against breaks or leaks. If one occurs a section of pipe may be shat off. Ti e increased volume of water in the old mam w ill not affect it in any other way than to raise the pressure here. The pressure at City Hall is now about forty pounds to the sqnnro inch, near the cemetery hill it is the lowest in then city, fifteen pounds. Along the wnter tront it is the high est, a little over fifty pounds. This is the normal pressure, put when the tire alarm is sounded the WUrUD ill* ntuuuii 40 UOOU, pumping the water into tlie twelve inch main rnisiug it to sixty and sev enty pounds nlnng shore, and forty tat lho hill with a proprotionate force at cliff* rent altitudes about the oity. From Runyon tne city now obtains 2,f.00,0U) gallons of water in twenty four hours, ancl it is good clear water. When the improvement is complote the oity will receive 3,000,000 gal lons. The six new wells at Runyon have been connected with the sixteen inch main. This makes ten good six inch aitesian wells nncl a pond of water ten times ns largo ns Eagleswood pond to draw from. The best well gives 430, 000 gallons in twenty-four lionrs. The others vary to 200,000 in twen ty-four hours. The old main orosses the river near Pardoe’s , the new one will come bv the new bridge. No intrenchments will be necessary, as the water is deep and no vessels would strike or foul tneir anchors as they nave wit h the old one. Mr. Burns says the work will take about three months and will begin when the river is entirely free from ice. Flxible joints will oe used as no joinings can bo made under water. All breaks will be repaired with cold lead. On the flats a flexible joint will be placed every threo lengths and then end will not require much raising a bove its level. Nenrer tlio chanuel there will lie one in two joints and in the channel there will be one every joint. The pipes are covered witn a solution which preserves them. As to the loss of pipe bv corrosion, electrolysis or other destructive ohemical conditions which have caused so lunch inconvenience aud expense to other cities it is a notice able fact that Perth Amboy hi^s nevor been troubled by such hiuder ances in her water supply. The lay ing of the new main under the river will necessitate the issuing of about 180,000 more water bonds. Best sewing innohine, lowest prices, at 33B State street. A.

Came from Boston to this Port in Twenty-eight Hours. TWO HOURS LOWER. Previous Record was Thirty Hours Made Some Time Ago bv a Boston Tug—Run was Made With Ease—Crew Working Togsther Determined to Establish the Record. Captain McGodrick. of Commerce itreet, commander of the Lehigh Val ley tug Lehigh, is receiving the con gratulations of nis friends today for the Lehigh, which came in yesterday ifternoon from Roston, broke the best record ever mado bv any tngboat be tween Boston and this port. The Lehigh left Boston on Tuesday at 12 o’clock noon, and with three heavy barges os a tow she arrived in this city yesterday afternoon, making the trip in just twenty-eight honrs and some minutes. The best time made before this was by one of the biggest tugs in tno services of a Bos ton company, who mado the trip in thirty hours. The Lehigh is a modern j boat, bud when she leaves for Boston this afternoon, with a tow of four barges loaded with hard coal, she will try to beat the thirty-hour record again. Tlio r-ro«,• nn <lin trin frnm P.nofnn all worked hard for they, as well as the captain, were interested in mak ing the record rnn. Some of the old est captains, who have steamed from Boston to this city, for years, say that it was a wonder!ul piece of work, and that, only a skilful pilot, aud a good earotul crew could make such a run. Many times an effort has been made to brenk the thirty-hour record, bnti they have all failed until yesterday. Patrons are Pleased. Evervbodv who lias visited the new library since it opened its doors to the public yesterday have had nothing but praise for its appearance. All are nnited in declaring it is a credit to the city.

Henry Talks Aboutthe Staten Island j Sound Bridge. When Assemblyman-elect Dr. F. 0. Henry was asked, this morning, whether tbe matter of a bridge across Staten Island sound would b8 brenght before the State legislature this win ter, lie said he did not think it wonld be advisable to taxe any action as the affairs are not now in any tangible condition to present to tbe legislature. That body will require strong argu ments to explain its usefulness to the State and he does not doem it wise to ! present the matter this winter. “I should be willing and glad to1 have tho honor of presenting the bridge question to the legislature, but I think the people of this city should work tho matter np quietly and earnestly first,” said Dr Henry. He thinks a city committee should li^ appointed independent of the pres ent committee, or the one which would be appointed by the legislatnie anil it should be composed of repre sentative men of the town who wonld bo willing to devote much time and work and even money if it is re quired, in carefnllv considering the matter. They should get an idea of the cost of the structure and of the benefit to the State. A number of very plausible ergnments will be necessary to have tho legislature pass the appropriation, and as Dr. Henrr thinks it wonld be far better to wa’t until later and present a strong case than to risk a defeat now, for a pro ject once voted down is very difficult to bring np again. $rt3nbu>s 5 room hou-e oath, talicce monthly. gives you clear deed to one acre of land at Kiusey Corner. $500 for a building Rite on State street.

Ca'I 162 W IMPORTANT NOTIC I Inasmuch as certain parties of this city are circulating a report that the Red Star Trad 1 ing Stamps will be withdrawn, the undersigned merchants who were the first to recog I nize the demand of the people of this city for Trading Stamps, and who liberally re sponded to tlie wishes of their patrons desire to stamp this report as an UNQUALIFIED FALSEHOOD. The Red Star Trading Stamp Company is capatilized for $300,000.00, has more than one hundred premium stores all over the country, and its premiums are twice as valuable as those given by second or third class concerns. Beware of Imitations All things of merit are imitated, don’t be deceived, if you get the Red Star Trading Stamps you get THE BEST. Insist on getting the Red, take no substitutes. Sickles Bros.

Commissioners of Appeal Have Many Complaints, but Find Very Few Where Adjustment is Warranted-Statement Made that Changes all Told Will Not Exceed $200. The Commissioners of Appeals met Inst night to consider the adjustment 5f claims. Some forty-live were taken tip and disposed of. Last night’s uuount makes a total of Bixty cousid sred in two meetings. Less than half ;>f these have been reduced. There were eighteen reduced last night. Most were for very small amounts, varying Ironi a few centB to $3 54 the jreatest. The reductions thus far made are mere corrections on the rssessors' work. The $3.54 correction was a personal tax on a man not living here now. The amount was taken off die bill. This very small amount of money taken off the claims already consider ed is not very conducive to hope for those that are to come. From the □ umber of complaiDts made it was thought that wholesale reductions would be made. It is very probable that very few bills will really be low ered. City Clerk Rielley is of the opinion man xui ixic xiatxxj uw t,uuxjnojuvo ceiveil property owners will get only a small $200: Mr. Arnold wanted a reduction on property assessed as he says $50,000 above its value. Most of the big claims are yet to come and very interesting decisions are ex pected. The Commissioners meet tonight to decide a few more complaintB. While they were receiving coaa* plaints public attention was drawn to the fact that the rate over last year was increasing in size until it became nearly ten times as great. Predictions and expectations were that there world be much of great slaughtering in the assessors’ work. Just now it looks as though the City Clerk's opin ion will stand. ELECTRICAL WORKERS INSIST UPON RICHTS. Dispute About Boring Holes in Ma son Work—Letter from National President. The differences between the masons and the electrical workers does not appear to be settled. While the masons claim the right to bore holes in the brick work, the electrical work ers have a letter from their national president stating that a New York arbrration hoard lias decided in tavor of the electricians and advised the local men to insist upon their rights. As will he seen by a letter in another column from the delegate of the elec tro il workers, tuejelectricians intends to do this. The delegate says that the electricians will return to work and will do their own boring. The masons are not members of the Build ing Trades Council and the electric ians are.
