Ask Tax Lien Sales to be
Suspended During the War
Bv Spécial Correspondent.
TOTTENVIL.LE, Feb. 14.—Comp
troller Craig hae been asked by the
Staten Island Civic League to suspend
the safe of tax liens for the period o£
the war In order to avoid putting any
hardship on men who are serving their
country. Dr. L. A. Dreyfus, president
of the league, has written to th«
comptroller as follows:
"In view of the fact that many of
our men (2800 from Staten Island) are
In the national service, that many o!
these are men who have bought homes
Or who have aided their parents tc
buy homes and that some of these are
delinquent In the payment of the
taxes of such homes, by reason of their
eervice to their country, the Staten Is
land Civic League has requested that
I make the following request:
"That you suspend the sale of ta*
liens during the period of the war and
for a reasonable time thereafter.
"This, we feel, would prevent hard
ship In & number of cases and would
work no real injury to the city.
"Moreover, during such intermls
lion in the sale of tax liens, you might
work out a more sane method of deal
ing with delinquent taxpayers, for It is
a' public scandal that the present
method of selling tax liens enables s
lot of despicable sharks to collect us
ury from negligent or unfortunate
property owners."

COUNCIL MEETS
INSOUTHAMBOY
Discuss Gas Rate Raise and
Water Supply to T. A.
Gillespie at Morgan.
Bj/ Spinal Correspondent.
SOUTH AMBOX, Feb. 14.—At the
moeting of the common council last
night, when a notice was read by the
city clerk from the Public Service Gas
Company, a lengthy discussion fol
lowed. The Public Service Gas Com
pany Is petitioning this city to favor
the increase of twenty-live cents per
month per customer, on account of
'the Increased cost of labor and other
ι various expenses caused by the ab
' normal conditions. The president of
the council asked for a disposition of
j the communication, which was re
lierred to the council as a whole.
Councilman Hackett stated that
I there was a meeting to be held in
ι Trenton today in regard to the in
crease, and while this communication
j was referred to the council as a whole,
lit meant that no action would be tak
ιβη. Councilman Jlackett, insisted that
] some action be taken as the corpora
I tion has been unjust to the city in
ι previous dealings, and now he thought
would be time to have some "say."
Sometime ago, the council passed a
resolution prohibiting the Public
Service Gas Company of this city from
making any new taps on account of
refusing to agree with the council in
some matter that was for the welfare
ι of the city. Councilman Parisen
stated that the reason he referred the
the communication to the council body
as a whole, was so that when the pro
| posed recess would be taken later,
some decision would be arrived at.
Mayor Kerr stated that he had re
ceived the communication, so that
none of the councllmen had any "in·
ι side information" on It, as Council
man Hackett claimed.
Another proposition came before
the meeting, being the question of
the T. A. Gillespie Loading Company
taking water from this city. The clerk
read a letter stating that they had
used water for twenty-one days, at the
rate of 1.800 gallons per day a total
of 37,800 gallons.
Councilman Hackett stated that
the figures were an estimate and not
actual figures. He declared that the
' people of the city had the water
measured to them, and he stated that
he could see no reason why the same
thing should not hold true with them.
Councilman Hackett said he was sure
the company needed the water and
there was no reason why they should
not have a man stationed at the
hydrant and ascertain exactly how
much water was being used by them.
Mayor Kerr stated that he did not
think that the company would try to
1 get away from paying for the full
amount of water used, as he thought
the government would pay the com
pany for any amount that they pay
the city. Councilman Stanton asked
that the company be made to pay for
water consumed.
Councilman Hackctt stated they
were ruining- the hydrant as well as
talcing water without permission. lie
declared that they were using a Stif
son wrench on the hydrant instead of
a regular hydrant wrench. The
wrench wears out the iron. The
water commissioner declared that he
would have the next party arrested
should he catch them doing it.
More discussion was started when
a resolution was introduced by Coun
cilman Gordon for the drawing of a
note of $15,000 to pay the state and
county tax of the city. This note
would have been unnecessary if all
the people of this city had paid their
taxes, both personal and real, for the
years of 1915, 1916, 1917, which
come to nearly $15,000. Councilman
Hackett stated that he would not vote
> for another note to be drawn as he
ι declared that the city was in debt
s enough with some $65,000 worth of
notes in the bank now.
Councilman Gordon stated that thie
> I note would not have been caused only
11 for the delinquent taxpayers, and now
I ι that the state and county taxes have
I I to be met, it was the only feasible
thing to do. In previous years, he
stated, the Main street improvement,
the Henry street improvement, all ex
penses of whicfh had to come out o(
the general account in the budget, as
they had not been provided for, and
in order to reimburse the general ac
. I count the notes had to be made. Citj
I Solicitor Ijeo J. Coakley stated that
there was due the city from the taxes
some $14,000, most of which was on
personal property, and in his opinion
it was best to have the note fot
$15,000 made, and as the arrearages
(come in let them pay for the note
"which was made to cover them. T'por
the legal advice of Solicitor Coakley
Councilman Hackett stated that ht
would change his decision. The vote
was unanimous.
j I All bills having been approved bj
the various committees were ordered
paid by motion of Councilman Pari·
sen and the council's unanimous vote
Resolution offered by Councilmat
Gordon, that city clerk be instructec
to draw warrant for $3,000, in favor oi
the custodian of school money, to b<
r [used for local school purposes, wa:
-! adopted.
Resolutions Introduced by Council
man Gordon for the renewing of th<
following notes for the period of three
months at the rate of five per cent pei
annum: Broadway improvement noti
for $10,000; Broadway note for $3,000
Main street note for $11,056; Broadwa;
note for $5,000 were voted upon unan
imously.
Bond of Patrick McCabe for $500
having been aproved by the city solic
3 itor as to form, was ordered receivec

ί Parisen.
Application of transfer of license ο
Mrs. Catherine Gunkel to Meyer Zal

mittee by motion of Councilman Par
Isen. Reports of Overseer of Poor am

lector submitted no report.

WILSON IS IDOL ι
IF ÎLL LIBERALS
Europe's Liberals Think Highly
of Work, Aims and Ambi
tions of Our President.
By L. HARPER LEECH,
Special Start Dispatch.
WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 14 —
That Americans have only the faintest
idea of the hopes which the liberals
of all European countries are build
ing upon President Wilson is the mes
sage brought to Washington by one
of the most interesting figures in Brit
ish politics and warfare. Colonel Jo
siah Wedgewood.
Colonel Wedgewood, pcace advo
cate and member of the famous Eng
lish family of Liberals, is a real
"fighting pacifist." He wears the uni
form of a British colonel and the
wounds of two wars.
He ia now on a mission for the
British government. For 15 years he
has been a member of the British
House of Commons fighting for land
taxation, the enfranchisement of wo
men and the complete democratiza
tion of the British Empire.
Nearly every housewife knows what
"Wedgewood" pottery is. The Wedge
wood family, which originated this
artistic ware in the 18th century, were
pioneers of democracy no less than of
industry.
Here's what Colonel "Wedgewood
says they think of Wilson in Europe:
"England and all the world may
join in thanksgiving that America is
one refuge from the iron hand of
tyranny.
"It is to President Wilson himself
tliat tlLo.se wlio wish to down Prussian
militarism should chiefly Rive thank .
Make no mistake about it. Provident
Wilson is hi this fourth year of the war
worth more than on army corps. HE
IS TRUSTED BY THE COMMON
PEOPLE.
"If English labor keeps its almost
revolutionary energies applied to
beating the Boche it is because of
your President. No one who has
heard his najne cheered at the Labor
Congress can doubt it. Ask French
labor. They will tell you the same
thing. Even Ireland trusts and looks
to Wilson for justice.
"To Liberals—an International
body after all—Wilson is their stan
dard bearer, a man in whom they
place more trust than in their own
governments. His position Is unex
ampled and yet it does not seem to
r bo understood in America. English
and French worklngmen, English and
French morale are essential to the
winning of a democratic peace. By
some marvel a man we have never
seen or heard of except in the news
; papers arouses new courage and con
; fidence In us.
"When Ajnerica came into the war
' wanting nothing for herself, ehe
ι brought in a fresh breath of air—
self-sacrifice. Under Wilson's hand
1 ling this has become a veritable reli
• gion of the allied masses—A RELI
, GION OF DEMOCRACY SUCH AS
. THE COMMON PEOPLE UNDER
STAND."

Annual Banquet at Raritan Inn
By Special Correspondent.
KEYPORT, Feb. 14—More than
seventy-five guests were present at the
banquet held at the Raritan Inn on
Tuesday evening, when the Keyport
Social «'lub enjoyed Its annual event.'
The tables were most appropriately!
decorated for the occasion and the
evening was one much enjoyed by all
who attended. Owing to the absence J
of the president, John G. Schanck,
who was called away at the last mo
ment, former Postmaster William E.
Bedle, acted as toastmaster.
DeVVitt Paxton, humorist, gave sev
eral clever recitations which were
well received, and Dr. H. P. Cooley
gave an interesting talk. Music was'
rendered by Professor Horace M. Ban
nister, of the Surf theatre, and a
soloist was secured for the evening.
Altogether the banquet proved to
be all that was expected and that had
been planned. During the past year
the club membership has greatly in
creased and the members can enjoy a
social evening at the rooms on Broad
street, where various games may be
enjoyed.
The menu for the evening
was planned and elaborately carried
out by Mrs. Schaeffer.
Attractive menus were used as fa

A new system of milk distribution
which will permit sale at 11. cents a
quart and six cents a pint has been
started.
A "traveling milk store" is doing the
work.
Stopping thirty minutes at each
stand, the moving, store on wheels, a
speciaiy designed wagon, will sell no
milk between stops. Customers must
have the exact change and milk bottles
to exchange for the filled bottles. De
livery expense is thus slashed.
