Part of it takes in | tiie road the Elizabethport, Amboy & Long Branch want to control. The judge said this company, if nnable to secure the right of way for two years, would ent ont Woodbridge altogether. Chairman Herman asked if Mr. Qnin's company has ever made appli cation to get into Amboy. Mr. Qnin said yes, bur not legally. He said he had indirectly made application ac companied by a certified check for $■>,000 as a eua-a tee they wool! make one, but this was of no use.

Over Fifty Children Took Part in the Program in Simpson Lecture Room. What is pronounced by critics to be the best entertainment ever held in the lecture room of Simpson M. E. cl'.urch, was given last night when Jedediah Basset conducted the “Sing in’ Skewl” by Aunt Folly Basket. It was the beet, because it really entei tains. It is interesting throughout and not for a moment did the audi ence take their eyes from the professor and his pupils. Jedediah, himself, was worth the price of admission and everybody said so. The “dingin’ skewl” differs from the village ohoir, which was here some time ago, in that the “skewl” is composed entirely of children. Jedediah had over fifty under his direction last night and they did well. Their names ran something like this: Hezekiah Spooks, Abadiah Grinders, Abed Hagadon, Simon Fox,Demetrius Dewsnapp, Belinda Bumpns, Faith Oadwalledar, Zenobia Clintou,Agatha Sohoonmaker. The program ran some thing like this: “Anld lang Syne,” by skewl; “When a Maiden” by little Dorcas Tubbs; “Hen Convention” by Bijah Noggles. There was a Quaker Courtship, JoBiali and his Sally, Three Blind Mice, Ynnkco courtin’. The skewl was a big suooess. It will be repeated tonight. MRS. F. V. LANCASTER.

Much Interest in the Sale of the Beat— j One of the Bidders was from England Others from Mew York, Philadelphia, and Boston—Craft is Still Services ble. John H. Gregory returned yesterday from a trip to Bermnda. He came in on the Patronia. Mr. Gregory sayB he went to Bermnda to purchase the British gunboat “Hotspur” which was for sale. He does not know whether he has purchased her yet or not. There were ten bidders from Bermnda, Philadelphia, Boston, New York and England. The three largest dealers in this trade in tiie country were there. They are J. H. Gregory, Hittner, of Philadelphia, and Thomas Butler, of Boston. The boat, Mr. Gregory said, is in good condition yot and would be a valuable purchase to any of the com panies. The fact that one bidder wonld deem it worth while to go from England to bin, gives an idea of the keen interest held in the awarding of the sale which will be made sometime dnrjng this month. The craft is 203 feet long and 50 feet beam and draws twenty-two feet of water, aud is of 4,000 touB burden. She had her crew still on board when Mr. Gregory inspected her. They number 150 men aud officers. She carries a number of small rifles and rapid fire guns and two twelve-inch riflesj in the turret forward. An eleven inch armorplate protects her. She is of iron. Her boilers, furnish ings and machinery are in good con dition. The Hotspur is one of the coast de fense vessels and is of a type common to the British navy, bat which is now becoming obsolete. Her armor plate is not strong enough and she does not make sufficient speed. Mr. Gregory says if he secures the vesshl sue will come np under her own steam to his yaid hero. He says the British gov ernment may not sell at all if they are not satisfied with the price, as the boat is yet serviceable. He says prices are not so high now as two years ngo. All the boats armament will be taken off except the two big guns. Take yonr doctor’s prescriptions to Sexton, the Druggist. 11-20-1 Alive or Cooked Lobster. 3oc Apiece, Up.
