WORKSLAGKER
ONGOALDOCKS
THAN IN YEARS
Only One Dock Is In Use and
Men Work Only Two or
Three Hours Daily.
FEW ORDERS THE CAUSE
But One Tugboat and a Single
Engine Are Needed to
Handle Work.
Work on-the Lehigh Valley docks
Is almost at a standstill, und old em
ployes of ihe company say that the
work at present, is slacker for this
time of the year than It has been in
many years.
“In summer, of course, shipments
are few and work accordingly slack,
but never have I seen it so slack for
this time of year,” said a man in a
position to speak. The reason Is glv
eu that (hero are few orders, conse
quently few shipments are being
made. The chief reason Is given that
few tugs can be had to haul the ship
ments due to a strike among tug boat
employes.
At present only one tug can bo pro
cured for local work. The tug Haver
, straw Is doing the work. At other
limes, when work is in full swing, as
many as six or seven tugs have been
In use, most of which are now tied up
at Jersey City and other places, due
to the strike.
At tfie docks only one dock Is in
use, with a small gang of men, who
work only from two to three hours
daily. Only one engine Is doing duty
on the docks where, at other times,
aH many as live and six engines may
be seen drilling cars. Some of them,
It is slated, are laid off for a day,
others for a week and some work
dally from 11 o’clock to 2 or 3
o’clock. Officials of the company ad
mitted this morning that work is very
slack but would not give any reasons
other Ilian that few shipments nre
being made, and the boat service is
crippled.

ADJOININCTHE PLANT
Tracts Procured so That Plant Will
be in no Danger of Isolation
from the Street.
j The American Smelting and Refln
I lug Company has purchased two
| tracts of land from the Lehigh Val

[ present property and also secured the
property between their plant and i
State street.
At the plant this morning it was

the size of the factory, although such
a move may be made in the future.
One of the officials of the concern
said that the strip of land on State

plant would not be cut off from the

A HEARING.!
_
No Evidence That He Intended to
Defraud Anyone By Pass- ;
ing Checks Here.
HAD MONEY-IN BANK.
Special to the EVENING NEWS:
NEW BRUNSWICK, Feb. 9: —
I Henry Kolb, who was sent up from
| Perth Amboy on u charge of passing
i worthless checks, was discharged by
1 Judge Booraem this morning. Lnwvcr
| Freeman Woodbrldge was appointed'
I io defend him.
Thomas E. Farroat was first sworn.
He testified that he had cashed
checks for Kolb before, but not per
sonal checks. He had given the
j ohei'k to Seheuer & Sons and they
i had deposited it. Two days later the
i check came back to Farroat as no
I good and lie had to pay its face value.
Joseph Galalda said the check he
cashed was drawn on the Franklin
National Bank, of New York, while
the check given to Farroat. was on the
First National of Perth Amboy, Ga
laida admitted that he had not de
posited the check and did not know
whether the Franklin bank would
honor it. or not. He said that Kolb
j had returned to him the day after
! presenling the check and asked him
i to hold it for a day or two promising
to pay It off $5 at a time.
Lawyer Woodbrldge wanted the
case dismissed on the ground that
Kolb had made no misrepresentation
but the court denied the motion.
When Kolb was put or. the stand
he said he still ^iad money in the
Franklin bank in New York and that
Galalda s check would have been hon
ored. As there was no evidence to
the contrary the Galalda count was
thrown out.
Regarding the Farroat check Koio
admitted that he had no money m
the Perth Amboy bank when he gave
the check hut he hnd tried to deposit
some in order to meet the check, but
the bank was closed. He says be
had about $80 which he had brought
from Flushing, L. I. That night, he
declared, he had taken a few drinks
and fell asleep in the Tottcnville sta
tion. When he awoke, he said, the
$80 was missing, which accounted for
nothing being deposited.
Judge Booraem said that a man
, wins nnu uiuuuuiu inn ii in: u»iu uccu
; proven guilty and as there was no
conclusive evidence against Kolb, lie
would dismiss the case.
Improvement* in Store.
James Chrislopulos, proprietor of
the "Boston confectionery stores, is
having extensive alterations made in
his Smith street store. The Inner
partition formerly dividing the store
from the Ice cream parlor has been
torn away, making It one. Where the
partition formerly stood is being pre
pared an arch which will be lighted
up with electric lights. Numerous
minor repairs are also under way.
The worth of a thing is best known
by the want of it;” and thus many a
want ad. owes its origin to some
“hard knock” we may have received
in dally life. ______

NEW BRUNSWICK, Fob. —
Of all the social joys of the college
boys and town girls and college wid
ows! t*le greatest at Rutgers Is the
junior promenade, which was heid
here last night. The Robert F. Bal
lahtine gymnasium, named after the
Newark man who gave it to the col
lege, was the scene of as happy a
gathering as it ever sheltered. Local
society smiled upon this function; the
sisters, cousins and best friends of
the students flocked to it and the
dance was the thing for six hours of
the night. There were 375 guests at
the promenade last night, the larg
est. assemblage at such an event in
the history qf the college.
The class of 1908 had striven hard
to excel previous classes in the at
tractiveness of decorations and the
delight of their friends upon entering
the gymnasium was gratifying. Class
colors, college colors, American Hags,
fraternity emblems and flags were in
termingled in pleasing profusion, be
Inir uuunmiflofl frmn tho rnftnra fus
tootled about the running track and
grouped about the many electric
light fixtures, while blazing out from
It all were the iluminated numerals
of the class.

committee of ladies having located it
self beneath the great scarlet banner
of the college. Here Miss M. A,

William S. Myers, Mrs. Cullen W.
Parmalee, Mrs. Elliot R. Payson, Mrs.
Edward L. Stevenson, Mrs. Edward
B. Voorhees and Mrs. Douwe D. Wil
liamson.
An orchestra from Brooklyn, hid
den behind the decorations on the
running track, furnished the Inspira
tion and there were encores for ev
ery dance. The orchestra chose the
popular selections from the musical
successes of the day and the dancers
often demanded the number ov ;r
and over again.
After the first half of the damp's
the guests formed in circles under
the different fraternity emblems and
a supper of bouillon, salads, ices and
coffe was served.
Pretty Girls from Many Places.

entertained yesterday afternoon at
the fraternity houses, the students

The Didier-March Company, Which
Recently Bought Out Adam Weber’s
Sons, Plans $175,000 Additions.
WILL MAKE CHEMISTS’ SUPPLIES
It was learned today from good
authority that the Older-.March Com
pany, of New York, who purchased
the clay manufacturing plant of
Adam Weber’s Sous a few months
ago, will shortly* build a large addi
tion to the present plant, which will
cost in the neighborhood of $175,000.
One of the officials at the plant
in conversation with a NEWS report
er, said that the company has been
intending to increase the size of the
plant for some time and that the
actual work would be started on April
1. At the present time, fire and hol
low brick are manufactured at the
plant but, when the new buildings
are completed, the chief industry (of
the concern will be manucacturlug
special ware for chemical factories.
In many of the chemical plants spec
ial piping Is needed to carry adds us
well as a certain kind of pottery,
which has to he made from an import
ed clay. As the Dlder-March com
pany is backed by a company In Ger
many, the clay can easily be secured
and will be sent to this city on steam
ers. The company hopes to run the
steamers to the plant. ^
The proposed additions will com
prise a number of small buildings, a
new clay shed, a new engine house, a
new dock and a large-main building
which will he 165x135 feet and will
be three stories high. Tile maifec
building,will be built of solid concrete^
and will be used solely for the manw-®j
facture of chemists’ supplies. w
When the work is completed the *
present size of tho factory will be
about doubled and although Are and
hollow brick will still be manufactur
ed, the company will make a special
ty of the new earthenware. These
plans are all complete and the con- :j
tract will be let in a few weeks. The 'i
buildings are expected to be complet- "
ed in about six months. About 600
men will be employed when the new j
plant is opened. The superintendent J
in charge of the factory at the prea- I
ent time is Paul Schiller, who is also I
the chemist at the plant. V j Jj
The company Intends bioadeutag M
its market and now has offices in
York and Baltimore, the latter being (
the main office and the hendquart&A \
of Frederick J. Mayer, the general
manager of the concern, The other\
officers of the company are in Ger
many, where a similar plant is lo
cated.
Surveyor Forrest L. Smith has
made a complete survey of the plant
and will probably supervise the lay- J
ing out of the new buildings.
Smfth has also prepared large planet?
