Newark Evening News Writes
About the New Raritan
Tho Newark Evening News lias this
to say about the new bridge:
“Since the Unitoil States War De
partment tins boon called in to deter
mine wlietlior tlie Perth Anihoy
bridge is an abstraction to navigation
or not another inimical factor lias
made its appearanco in the form of a
protest bv the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company. The latter has not hitherto
manifested any aotive interest in this
bridge, though it may have been more
or less effectual in a quiet way. Now,
however, it openfy opposos the com
pletion of the bridge upon tlie present
plans, and the Amboy people are said
to be greatly disconraged and to en
tertain the suspicion that tlie struc
ture will never be finished. It is a
most singular and inexplicable state
of affairs and has been from tlio be
ginning. There is now, and for thirty
years has been, a railroad bridge
acres* tlie Ilaritnn River from Perth
Amboy to Soutli Amboy, yet it is
Impossible, apparently, for I lie poople
of Middlesex County to build a ve
hicle and foot passenger bridge across
tlie same stream, beoanso the latter is
held to bo uu obstruction to naviga
tion and is also likoly to affect the
interests of the railroad using tlie ex
isting bridge, It is doubtful, how
ever, if all tiiese obstructions com
bined have had as muoh to do with
the failure of this bridgo ns have the
incompetency of tlie'1’ Hoard ot Free
holders, the vital imperfections of
tlie brulgolplans themselves and tlie
uicKorings between tno trouey com
panies and tho municipal corporations.
Tho bridge lias been killed by its
friends, rather thnu by its oneinies, if
it is killed. " ^
