TRENTON, Fell. 28:—Some im
portant changes in the Frelinghuy
sen automobile law are.contained in
a bill which Senator Freiinghuysen

changes is the increasing of the nupj

plates a three-days' license for tour
ists at a fee of $1.
Senator Gebhardt, o Hunterdon,
has Introduced a bill to prevent the
formation of insurance trusts in New
Jersey. It requires all fire insurance
companies transacting business in
this state to file wlttilu thirty days
after the passage of the act and an
nually thereafter with the secretary
of state, a sworn statement that the
company and its offlceup have not en
tered into an agreement to fix or
maintain rates and that neither the
company nor its officers belong to any
trust or combination which fixes
rates.
Included in several bills favorably
reported was the Colby direct pri
mary bill. Senator Colby ashed that,
In order to save tiiuo and avoid a re
currence of the action on the civil
service bill, which, after being passed
on second reading, was sent back to
committee, tile measure be made a
special order for next 1 uesday moi u
ing. That order was made.
The Hincbllffo bill, vesting Boards
pf Freeholders with power to prohibit
, any person or persons from tearing
j up county roads for th<^ laying of
pipes or conduits, or for any other
purpose, was passed by a vote of 13
to 3, after the warmest debate of this

Senate Makes Senator Colby's
Measure Special Order- Busy
Day in Upper House.
TRENTON. Feb. 28:—While the
meeting of the state senate yesterday,
was comparatively brief it was an ex
ceedingly bus\ one while it lasted.
After Senator Hutchinson had pre
sented a petition favoring the recom
mendations of tite Immigration com
mission, Senator Gebhardt, of Hun
terdon, presented petitions against
voting machines and against the re
peal of the bishops' laws. Anti-repeal
[petitions regarding the same act were
also presented by Senators Ackerman
and Avis.
Senate bill 65, providing for direct
nominations at the primaries, was
made a special ord: :• for next Tuesday
morning on , second reading. This
was done at tho suggestion of Sena
tor oClby, its Introducer, who tuado
the request, he explained, in order to
save time and avoid a recurrence of
the action on liis civil service bill
which, after being paasdd on second
reading, was sent back to committee.
The committee on elections report
ed adversely oil the Htnchllffo meas
ure requiring municipalities, instead
of counties, to bear the expense ol'
municipal primary elections. When
resident Minch called the bill up for
a second reading Senator Avis de
clared that under the rules tho con
sent of the senate was requisite to se
cure action on any bill reported. Sen
ator Gabhardt took exception to this,
declaring that lie was opposed to any
rule requiring a motion to place a bill
on second reading after an adverse
committee report.
Senators Colby and Bradley, the
the bill had been referred, staled that
it had received most careful consider
ation and that Senator Hinchliffe had
been notified that the committee in
tended (o make an adverse report.
Senator Avis held that it was the
province of a committee to report a
measure as it believed was right,
whether this report was favorable or
unfavorable, and ho declared that un
less committee reports were accepted
they might ns well he abolished.
The discussion was brought to a
dose when Senator Hinchliffe asked
that further consideration of the bill
be dispensed with.
Another measure up on second
reading was a joint resolution for the
election of senators and assembly
men by districts, which is a compan
ion to the resolution already passed
by the senate establishing assembly
districts.
The only bill passed yesterday was
Senator Hinchllffe's measure giving
boards of freeholders the power to re
gulate or prohibit the tearing up of
• ounty roads, and it was not without
a vigorous fight that it was finally
sanctioned by a vote of 13 to 3.
Senator Robbins led the fight
against the measure, contending that
it would vest entirely too much pow
er in the boards of freeholders.
The argument presented by Senator
Hinchliffe to the effect that the meas
ure was to meet a condition in Pas
saic county, however, was sufficiently
convincing to insure its passage. Ha
declared that the Passaic county
board of freeholders nail constructed
more miles of stone roads than any
single county In the country, and
that they should have the power to
say whether or not these roads should
be promiscuously tom up.
Just before adjourning until next
Monday night it was announced that
the committee on miscellaneous busi
ness would hive a hearing on Senator
Hutchinson’s osteopathy bill next
Tuesday morning.

HARRIMAN IS

Stuyvesant Fish Says He Mis

Central-Borrowed Millions
NEW YOItK. Feb. 28. Stuyvesant
Fish, who, E. Hi Harriman testltied
at the interstate commerce iuqulry
here, was deposed as president of the
Illinois Central railroad because he
had used funds of the company In his
own Interest and put its money on de
posit with n small trust concern on
the verge of bankruptcy, made a reply
in which he declared that Harriman
himself had Ixtrrowcd millions from
the Illinois Central railroad, of which!
he was a director.
“I have little to say," said Mr. Fish
wheii asked if he wished to reply to
Mr. Harriman. "I shall not lie drawn

He uml I sustained close relations for |
many years and were jointly Interest-j

transactions, us indeed all transactions
in which I have engaged, will bear the

"It was at my instance that Mr. Hnr

along quite well until he became am

and then and there Mr. TIurrimau and,

"He is quite right in saying that I

loan was made at a time when we'
were most anxious to put out some of
the surplus, that I limited from bank!

particular loan was made on collateral
which was unquestionably ample and
marketable, that several of the other
directors borrowed from the company

i William K. Tobey, of the Mercer

tho Didier-March Company for the

George W. Mercer, of the concern,

fract would be completed by October

i price was in lho neighborhood of

will amount'to about $200,000. Mr.
Mercer expects to employ a large

BRIDGETON TO HAVE A
NEW CITY CHARTER.
South Jersey City Wants to bo Gov
erned by u Commission In
stead of l>y Aldermen.
BRIDGETON, Pel). 28:- After .six
months of hard word the commis
sion appointed by the city council to
prepare and submit the draft of a
new charter for the city will have the
proposed charter ready for the March
meeting. The commission feels that
the work it has accomplished, while
revolutionary in many respects, will
solve many of the perplexing prob
lems that have been annoying mu
nicipalities for many years.
The present system of ward coun
cilmen is to he wiped out. Instead,
live eouncllmen, to be known as com
missioners, are elected by the city at
large for terms of three years. The
commissioners are to have salaries
of $f>00 each. Each of the commis
sioners, at the annual mooting, will
be appointed a director of a city de
partment and be responsible for the
conduct of that department.
The commission lias power to fix
all .salaries by ordinance with the ex
ception of Its own. Three votes are
necessary to pass an ordinance, and
four to pass It ovor the veto of the
mayor. The charter wipes out the
tax collector and city water regis
trar and a city treasurer elected by
the people collects and pays out all
city money. The mayor has power to
appoint a city comptroller and city
counsel, subject to the confirmation
of the commission. The mayor also
has the appointment of a tax assessor
board of three members.
The excise question is to be set
tled by a direct vote of the people,
for and against license. If a majority
vote for license, that fact is certified
to the judge of the Common Pleas
court, and ho Is empowered to grant
such licenses as he deems necessary
and fixes the foe. It Is urged by the
charter commission that this tnkes
the exciso matter entirely out of poli
tics.
The commission hopes to he able
to have the council approve the pro
visions of the proposed charter so
that it may be presented to the legis
lature during the present session. It
is urged that there can be no objec- J
lion to the passage of the bill as It
does not become operative until it
lias been approved by the vote of the
people of the city and cannot affect
;iny city that does not desire it. ' JgH
