many men lias very materially Inter
fered with the investigational work,
as well as the teaching and extension
work and has made it necessary to
discontinue some important lines of
research. The burden thus placed on
the institution is especially heavy,
since the war emergoncy has been
the cause of unprecedented demands
for service from the Experiment Kla
xon for the agriculture of the state.

The common council made an effort
to organize yesterday at noon, but
without success. The two new coun
cllmen, Samuel Leagher and Charles
Culver failed to put in an appearanco.
Frank H. VUet was the only member
re-elected who took the oath of office.
Joseph Hodapp was confirmed as bor
ough clerk to succeed Louis Appleby,
resigned. J. Randolph Appleby, Jr.,
of South River, was confirmed as bor
ough attorney, succeeding himself and
Thomas Brown was named as the
n<:W borough collector, succeeding
himself to that office. Ho received
the same number of votes as Frank
Hulit at the last election and it was
thought that opposition would de
velop toward his appointment by the
Democrats, as he is a life-long Repub
lican. No address or recommenda
tions were made by the mayor, J.
Randolph Appleby, and the session
wis devoid of any interest in compar
ison to similar sessions of tho past
two years.
Charles Culver proved that he is a
poor marksman when ho struck his
foot a blow with an axe while cutting
wood, and has been laid up with the
Injury since.

yon on Thursday afternoon at three
o'etofck. Interment will lie at South

At this time Clerk Rodgers reai

land E. Watrous, who it ie understooi
is to move from the borough. Thi
leaves only one Democratic council
man on the board, Asher P. Woollej

The councilmen present and «won

The message of Mayor Arris Β
Henderson fotlows:
To the Honorable Council of the Bor
ο ugh of Matawan.
It gives me great pleasure to ad
dress you at this time and to exprès
my deepest gratitude to you anl on
community in having their expressioi
of confidence and good will in beini
chosen to preside over you the no*
two years.
I am also appreciative of the man
ner In which two of my colleague
and myself were chosen, thus indlcat
Ing the fullect confidence In what thi
whole council has done In the pas
and the same confidence for the fu
ture.
This to my mind places a largo re
sponslblllty upon ue to so govern on
affairs that all shall receive at on
h*nde the best possible administra
tton with a view to establishing nni
maintaining a government that la to
I the best interesta of all of our people
It wa> my privilege to be appointe,
a councilman to this board by ex
Mayor Van Winckle on November
1909, to fill an unexpired term nn<
was, as you know, elected again li
3910, 1918 and 1916 and 1917 electei
as your mayor.
. During my period of service I hav<
always stood for progressive prlncl
pies and have advocated those thing:
that have to do with the development
and maintaining of a government tcrt
the best Interest of our community
such as new trolley tracks, new light
ing system, rebuilding of our watej
plant, better street* and sidewalks
extension of our boundary line®
- opening up of Broad street, sewei
- system, new library building
t A well equipped fire department
- ι with proper ftrohouses, system of fti f
1 alarm and modern apparatus for th<
- eafety and protection of our citizen!
î and their property.
s Some of these improvements have
. been brought about to the everlasting
1 credit of our council and the peopl<
we represent other Improvement!
» advocated have not been made ο v. ins
ι to circumstances over which this
3 board had no control, and for th(
present it is my Judgment that thej
1 should not be.
i ι We are now, as you are well aware
. i passing through a critical history oi
- j national affairs, in which we are ali
r called upon to participate, and being
1 good loyal citizens shall have to con
: ; tribute our bit.
It is our duty to conserve our ef
> torts to those things that are neces
r : sary for the safety and comfort o1
j our citizens and the health of our
r (Community but beyond this wc should
_ ι not go.
So I recommend to you that only
I j the expenditure of time and money
> j be used for those things necessary to
» ■ promote and maintain the essentia!
j things pertaining to our borough life,
[ ι and all other proposed Improvement»
. I remain in "statue quo" during the
I period of the war.
, I Turning to the business side of our
I affaire, X want to bring to your atten
tion a few things by way of recom
mendation.
ι During the year 131« we, as a
. council, were forced to recognize con
ditions imperatively demanding tm·
i mediate attention, and the expendi
ture of moneys not provided for in
ι our budget. In total approximately
. $3,000.
Some of the iterms will be taken
care of this year through the neces
sary increase in our budget, all other
items such as the Broad street lot,
■ sewer lot, sewer map, assessment
map and sidewalks should be carried
" as an asset and be provided for by
' cotes, certificates or bonds of indebt
r edness in accordance with laws re
' cently cnacted covering such expend
f itures.
It Is not fair or Just that we as a
. council should even attempt to pay
5 for such Heme out of our yearly bud
! ! get.
i ! I further recommend that all pro
t posed expenditures be submitted to
- the finance committee before being
ί passed upon by the council.
Furthermore I recommend that all
; bills be presented at each meeting
that it is possible to have presented.
1 1 furthermore recommend that the
I chairman of each committee, super
intendent of any department, or any
