WANT STATEN ISI AM) PERRY..
A number of our citizens are load ing and continually talking about im provements in our town and tlit- ad vancement of its interests. We feel inclined to ntnke a suggestion v through the columns of the NEWS. The Staten Island Rapid Transit is a i very pleasant way to go to New York i in the summer season, and it certain- I p' ly is much cheaper titan the all rail! route from South Antboy . Now South I '■*. Amboy has a public t'ock and the! Rapid Transit has a ferry between the Island and Perth Amboy, and tit Kcost would bo only a tittle more to have their boat continue over to; ?'• the South Amboy dock and take pas-1 sensors or whatever they wished ini transit for New York and as we were informed that the Androvette Tov. ing Company's tugs had so improved the depth of the water by their land ing at the head of the dock that we j had gained seven feet of water, which ! certainly is sufficient, for the landing of the ferryboats of the Rapid Tran sit. Then, as summer is approaching, j why not the authorities of the bor-' ough have a committee appointed to confer with the Transit officials, with the end In view of having a route es tablished for South Amboy direct by Rai>id Transit the coming summer. A little effort on the part of those who ' are in a position might result in hav ing this route established and we then would bn in a position that we of South Amboy would rot be com pelled to patronize a corporation that will not give their patrons a waiting room fit for docently stabling horses. uansr WENT TO 01,1) HOME. How well a horse remembers his old stable has been demonstrated a number of times in the writer’s mem ory and it was again demonstrated yesterday when Water Commissioner i^ary’s horse returned to hts old place of residence at M. Welch’s stable. When Mr. Leary first pur chased his horse he was living on Segond street and stabled his animal in Mr. Welsh’s stable for some time. He then purchased a property in George street nearly a mile distant. V Yesterday some one left the gate open leading to the street and Mr. m Leary’s horse immediately returned P to his old haunts.

About Hftoen of the propelry own ers of this place appeared before the loral board meeting at St. George Tuesday morning to protest against the petition to construct sewers in Ambov avenue. Station avenue and several of the other streets in this* place. This petition, which lias boen in the hands of William J. Ponton, a . business titan of this place, was sign-1 od by u number In favor of the sew ;era, and strongly urged the necessity of the sewers in this place. It was pointed out to the board that ovet flowlng cesspools, drained to a great extent into the open ditch that runs along the railroad from Amboy ave 1 nue. The impossibility of develop ing the distriet by building houses 11or profitable rental or sale or estab lishing modern sanitary arrango Imonts without sewer connection was mentioned. Those who talked In fav or of the sowers were Mr. Penlon, William Beplat and Joseph Silver stone. The opposition came from a number of the old families, one of ...1.. n„nlal Hurl,ill nf ShflH'Ott avenue, who said he had lived in this vicinity for eighty-one years, had in herited tracts of land and farm houses, and could not sec any danger in their accustomed conditions. Sev eral others who spoke against it were Philip Dewaters, C. C. Androvette, Jacob Sleight and Ji ving Bedell. The arguments, it is said, became warm and personal and also rather amus ing. This place has never had a sew er and the residents do not realize; the value of one. The matter was referred to Consulting Engineer Trib al!, of this borough, who explained the situation and stated that the city has no power at present to enter this place for sewer purposes, as it does not own any of the streets. He said a street layout and a sewer layout, to he adopted by the city, must be first provided and it would be some time before the engineering force could get to tills work. It Is thought by the petitioners that some action will be taken in regard to it in the spring. The matter is now in the hands of the consulting engineer. AFTERNOON EUCHRE.
