By Special Correspondent South Amboy, July 18—At an eventful meeting· of the South Amboy City Council last night, the Board of Education, In a communication from Secretary J. E. Coogan, mado a formal demand for the sum of $8, 365, due on last year's appropriation for school purposes, stating that summary measures will be taken un less the obligation Is immediately met. The meeting was also marked by another verbal combat between Councilman James J. Hackett and the Democratlo members of the council, and by a resolution Introduced au thorizing the discounting- of a note for 15,000 at the First National bank In view of the fact that the city funds have been reduced to a minimum through payment for extraordinary street Improvements. Those present at last night's busy session were Councilmen Stanton, Rue, Hackett and Parlscn, City Attor ney Coakley, City Engineer McMich ael's, Street Commissioner Connors and City Clerk Mack. A communica tion was read from City Clerk John Hanson, of Perth Amboy, enclosing a copy of resolution adopted by the Perth Amboy council July 17, asking the State Highway Commlision and state authorities to take over the bridgo between Perth Amboy and South Amlboy, with its approaches, and make them α part of route four of the State Highway System. The Perth Amboy body gave its opinion that this bridge, which is over 4,000 feet in length, necessitates the expen diture of a tremendous amount for upkeep and Is one of the causes for high county tax rates. It was further stated that the cost of repairs annu ally would exceed the Interest on a concrete structure that may have to be built to replace the present struc ture. The resolution, on motion of Mr. Parisen, was referred to tho com mittee of the whole, the Indication be ing that thç local council will adopt a similar resolution for presentation to the State Hig-hway Commission. A communication from A. J. Miller requesting the refund of $12 for a water tap permit, which was not used, was read and on motion of Mr. Part sen was referred to the water commit tee. , School Board Demands Money The following: communication was read from the secretary of the Board of Education In regard to the pay ment of money due the Board of Education for school purposVs, and provided for In last year's budget. On motion of Councilman Rue it was referred to the finance committee. Later In the meeting a resolution au thorizing the borrowing of $5,000 on ,1 Α *1,Λ Intimât ir»n being given that part of this money would be utilized to meet the obliga tion to the school board. "Tho Board of Education has di rected me to call the attention of your body to the fact that there Is still owing to the Board of Education the sum of. $3,365 on last year's ap propriation for school purposes. I am Instructed to add that tho failure of your body to me|et this obligation Is holding up the rendition of reports to the state authorities and thus -leaves the munlclpalMit- subject M> censure for falling to get the reports in on time. "The board has Instructed me to demand that this monèy bo forth coming immediately, even though It may be necessary for your body to discount notes In order to raise the funds. Tho appropriation was grant ed last year and there is no adequate excuse for the failure of the council to meet the obligation when it fell due on December 20, lot alone six or seven months after that date. The practice of doling out to the Board of Education small sums from time to time has met with consistent dis approval, and I am authorized to say that unless the obligation is Imme diately discharged summary meas ures will be taken. "The failure of your financial com mittee to live up to tho private agree ment entered Into with me personally several weeks ago has subjected me to additional censure and I trust you will take such action as will remove possibility of further criticism of both your body and myself. J. E. Coogan." City Clerk Mack stated that he had on hand an extensive report of the work done in the Water Department by Water Commissioner J. F. Barney since the first of the year. While the report was not read Councilman Par isen, of the water committee, asked for the reading of the item relating to the water meter for the Pennsyl vania Railroad Company. This item stated that although receipts up to the time the meter was repaired amounted to only about $400 from the railroad company the receipts were now nearer $650, showing that much additional revenue has accrued through the repairs to the meter. The report, on motion of Councilman Par lsen, was referred to the water com mittee. A resolution relating to an"""figrce ment between the council and Mrs. Marion Meinzer In regard to payment for water for a period of 908 days was read and adopted on motion of Mr. Rue. After It hn-d been found that an erroneous calculation had been made, probably due to a defective meter, Mrs. Meinzer agreed to have a new meter installed at her expense, and the reading of this, for a given period, was to act as a base on which the amount of water used for the past would bo computed. This test shows the amount due from Mrs. Melnzer to be $35.02, and this amount was substituted for the erroneous amount In which she had previously been billed. Hackctt Protests Bill. A resolution authorizing the pay ment of $443 to Carl Huasell for the construction of a retaining wall on upper Henry street again drew forth fire from Councilman Hackett, the lone Republican on the council, and led into a heated argument regarding the legality and wisdom of the move. The resolution stated that the adop tion o-f the new grade map for Henry street had caused a change in grade which threatened to make several nouses In the upper part of that thor oughfare collapse and fall, and that It became necessary to take immediate bteps to erect the retaining wall in concrete in order to protect the prop erty and relieve the city of any suits that might accrue from the damages that would have been rendered. The wall, it was said, Is now completed, and the work had been done in a perm anent and satisfactory manner by Contractor Carl Hussell, and was well worth the amount of $433. The action of the street committee in ordering this work done was to be confirmed, and the clerk authorized to draw a warrant for the above -amount. Councilman Hackett hero Jumped up and protested against the payment of the bill. He maintained that no bids had beçn asked for in order to stimulate competition and he claimed that the whole procedure was Illegal. He said that the matter had never .been brought up at a regular meeting, as claimed by his Democratic col leagues, and declared that he had a copy of the minutes of the meeting of June 19 showing that no action had ever been taken on the matter. He declared that this was not the time to introduce a resolution authorizing the work, and characterized it as being similar to "locking up the chicken coop after the chickens had been stol en." City Solicitor CcrJ.ley stated that he might as well set Councilman Hack ett right rega the legality of the move, citing tho Statute or 1912 which gives α municipality the right to spend an amount up to $600 for pub lic Improvement without advertising the same. The work entailing for this expenditure, he said, could be per formed by tho committee and ratified by the council. He declared that the plans were presented at the regular meeting and looked over, and made It clear that ho objected to Hackett's declaration that the move of the coun cil was Illegal. President Stanton made a heated denunciation of Councilman Hackett's actions in relation to the construction of this retaining wall. He declared that no member of the council wanted to knowingly do anything wrong or spend the people's money injudic iously. "Now this matter has been fought in court" said Mr. Stanton, "and the judge has said that tho coun cil was Justified in having this work done, since the law gives the govern ing body of this city the privilege of spending $500 for necessary Improve ments without advertising. This work hud to bo dono, and for α mere matter of difference in opinion you have class ed us as people not to bo trusted with the expenditure of the pcoplo's money. As far as injudicious use of people's money goes, you have caused more money to bo spent In having the city go down to Jersey City to defend this case. I'd like to know who paid the lawyer who pushed your cause. It was only from selfish motlvos, and has ■been proved so. k Hackett, in reply, ftigaln advanced the claim that the city money was not being spoilt Judiciously, anil that bids should have been advertised for in order to stimulate competition and get tfle \vork doiîÎT; ■·- ' ** Ho referred to the cAut.ji. Vrrësldonf'à statement regarding the law suit as bringing about tho foolish expendi ture of money, and said that ho (Councilman Hackett) did not go down to Jersey City and that he Ο didn't know why It won necessary for the other councilmen to do so. "A· far as the cost goes," he said, "why did the city have to get the county solicitor to argue the case. Haven't I we got a city solicitor to do that?" Councilman Parisen stateii that It was amusing to have Councilman Hackett posing as the champion of the people and ho characterized his opposition to the payment of the bill as being solely a political move. He asked why Hackett had not been so ready to protest against another bill for $700 which had previously been presented. Hackett demanded that this statement be explained, and Tarisen stated that he referred to the claim of former Water Commissioner Daniel J. Donlin for $700 for use and repairs to his automobile. "I never supported that bill In any way, shape or form," said Council man Hackett. "I did vote to turn the matter over to the city solicitor." At this point ho apologized to the president for talking directly across the floor to Councilman Parisen. Mr. Stanton stated that he was glad the fourth ward councilman had apolo gized for his action, as previously ho had been demanding that Council man Rue be kept from speaking without properly taking the floor. He again denounced Hackett's action In opposing the bill and asked why the councilman was so unwilling to ac cept defeat. On motion the resolu tion was adopted with the three Democratic councilmen voting in the affirmative and Councilman Hackett In opposition to the payment of the bill. A resolution by Councilman Pari sen, authorizing the water commis sioner to issue public notice to the effect that all citizens should pay amount due for water rent or have their supply shut off Immediately was read and adopted unanimously. The report of Overseer of the Poor William J. Woodward and of the colleotor, showing total receipts of $1,043.11, were received and filed on motion of Councilman Parisen. Chairman Rue, of the street com mittee, asked for an estimate on tho construction of a surface sewer for John street. City Engineer McMlch aels etated that he was hardly pre pared to offer an estimate, but that by basing his figures upon the cost of $3.65 per running foot for the Main street sewer, coupled with the ad vanced cost of labor and material since the construction of that im provement, he would Judge the sewer would cost in the neighborhood of $4.60 per running foot. On motion of Mr. Rue tho engineer was request ed to mako a further report on this at the next meeting. Borrow $5,000 The following resolution was pre sented and adopted, Councilman Hackett voting "No:" "Whereas the city has paid out In the last half year an amount of money approxi mating $16,000 for extraordinary Im provements and other matters un foreseen at the tlmo tho budget was made, and whereas for these Im provements, namely the Main street storm sewer, Main street curbing, Henry street sldowalk and curbing, Catherine street curbing improve ment, money was borrowed from the general and water accounts in lieu of the Issuance of bonds or discounting of notes with tho view of saving of Interest and discounts, and whereas In view of the foregoing facts the funds h#ve been reduced to a mini mum and money is due the Board of Education and for other bills; "Therefore bo It resolved that α note for $5,000 be discounted at the First National Bank for the period of throe months at the rate of five per cent per annum."
