NEWARK, Mar. 9:—That Newark
is beginning to enlarge in a manner
in keeping with her size, growth and
Importance in the list of cities was
shown last night at a meeting of the
common council when a resolution
was passed authorizing Mayor Hauss
ling to appoint a commission of live
members to revise the city charter.
The commission will act with a com
mon council committee which already
has the subject In hand.
This action is in line with the pol
icy of general1 improvement in the
methods of governing the city which ,
will be followed'by Mayor Haussling
.and which was recently planned by
| him and Councilman James R. Nu
It follows closely upon the action
of the Board of Works in deciding to
take up the question of trolley car
subways at the suggestion of the may- j
| or. The revision of the city charter!
will mean the entire rearrangement \
‘of Newark’s government, with a view j
to making it broader, better and more
modern. Part of the plan Includes
the abolishment of the various city
boards and placing the departments j
of police, fire, streets, water, educa
i tion, health and other branches of
the municipal government under siu
| gle heads by charter provision. The
scheme is a popular one and will be
pushed to early completion.

TRENTON, Mar. 11:—One ol' the
questions that is expected to attract
considerable attention during the,
i tenth week of the legislat ure which
opens tonight is that of improved
road building in New Jersey, and the
seemingly increase in the cost of such ,
work. The legislative investigation !
of the subject is authorized by a joint I
i resolution introduced in tin- upper
house by Senator Samuel K. Robbins,
or Burlington county, and public in
terest has been excited in this way.
In many quarters it is alleged that
a "stone trust" is foiling up the
I prices on the public, defrauding the |
taxpayers anil curtailing the amount \
! of road building that it is possible '
! for the state to accomplish.
