Liquor Dealers 8how Reti
cence to Sell—Add Deputies
for Observation Purposes
' The selling of beer and wines in this
city, which appeared to be scarcely in
terrupted yesterday, the first day un
der wartime prohibition, seems to
have slackened somewhat during the
past twenty-four hours. No particular
reason has been assigned for the grad
ual tightening up except that the deal
ers show a reticence to sell.
United States Marshal for New Jer
sey, Albert Bollschweiler, announced
at Trenton today that a large staff of
deputies had been added to his force
of marshals throughout the state.
These men will be used for purposes
of observation principally, It is said,
• although if necessary the deputies
will be provided with power to arrest.
Mayor Frank Dorsey declared that
so far as he was concerned no orders
would be issued from his officeluntl he
had received further and more defi
nite Instructions from the govern
ment authorities. The mayor was in
communication with the office of
United States District Attorney
Charles F. Lynch this morning. It
was stated there that although Mr.
Lynch was not in, that no new de
velopments had occurred to change
the situation. In other words the
"status quo ante" still holds so far as
official federal regulations are con
Bars in the business section of the
city were pretty well crowded yester
day afternoon. In many of the places
appearances were almost the same as
before prohibition became effective.
But this morning hardly a soul could
be found in the saloons. Peeps over
the swinginp doors disclosed deserted
bars and empty tables. Those places
which closed up tight yesterday nat
urally did not open today. One of the
largest hotels in the city, which was
noted for its bar, has placed its entire
stock of lntoxicant3 “in a cool, dark,
dry place,” where it will be kept un
►__ “a •«->- abatement of the law permits
it to see the light again.
.According to police reports there
are very few of the bars in the city
which are still open. Most of these
are taking a chance on selling 2.7 5
per cent beer .although few of the
places are selling wines. It is report
ed though that some of the dealers
have a high sign. Those patrons of
the bar that are absolutely to be re
lied upon may obtain somewhat of a
"kick” by asking for a certain kind of
a drink and giving the high sign.
The cocktail, or whatever It is, will
then be served and though it may
look perfectly innocent, there are
those who say it tastes just like the
real thing. That much is only hear
say though. But it is certain that it
they start diluting wines to 2-76 per
cent there will be many persons who
will prefer a perfectly plain lomon
soda. Any good wine that has been
sold within the past decade and per
haps since the beginning of time, has
obtained at least 10 per cent alcohol.
Does any one expect that four times
that dilution will leave enough al
cohol to make the stuff worth drink
ing?

Excise Board, Working in!
Doubt, Lays Over Applica- 1
tions Until July 15
Twenty-seven saloons, three hotels,
four bottling, two billiards and sixj
applications for transfers were laid'
over until July 15, last night at the'
regular meeting of the Board of Ex-|
else Commissioners. The board was
in a quandary as to what action to
take on the business that came before
it, as it Is impossible to obtain a de- <
cislon on the action to be taken with)
the hotels and saloons under the war
time prohibition act.
After he reading of the renewals
and transfers by City Clerk John Han-|
son, Jr., Commissioner Thomas Lucas
moved that they be laid over until,
July 15th, pending the decision of the:
supreme court.
Commissioner Emil Prey then arose
and said that he thought that was the!
proper course for the board to pur-j
sue, as it would not only protect the
Board and city, but also the hoetl,
men themselves, for if the renewals
were granted, and then the decision |
was found In favor of prohibition, the
liquor men would lose their money<
and the city don’t want any money,
that the liquor men may lose later on.!
The billiard licenses laid over were!
those of Michael Stump at 215 Hall!
avenue and Michael Zalutko at 62;
Washington street. These were laid'
over as the places are run in connec- 1
tion with saloons. The billiard li
cense of William Papas was granted,
however, as he has no connection with
the liquor business.

OF GUN; ) HELD
Quick Action of Mechanics
viile Garage Owners Saves
Their Loss
Quick action on the part of John
W. Holmes and John J. Deegan of this
city, proprietors of the garage on the
Sayreville Road in Mcchanicsville just
at the end of the Perth Amboy Bridge
upset the plans of four auto bandits
and caused the arrest of one of them
in an attempted early morning hold
up today.
One of the party, who gave his name
as Richard Hoberman of 92 Storm
avenue, Jersey City is being held in
the county jail in default of $1,000 bail
following his arraignment before Re
corder Pickersgill this morning. The
man was arrested by Officer^ Gutow
ski.
About 2:30 o’clock this morning
Mr. Holmes and Mr. Deegan were
awakened by a ring at their night
bell, the garage owners having ar
ranged to sleep in an apartment over
their shop. Mr. Holmes went to the
stairs and called down. ‘‘All right
Jack, I’ll be down in a second” but
without waiting for him to come down
a tall man came up the stairs and
asked the way to Keansburg. Mr.
Holmes told him clearly but the
stranger kept repeating his questions.
Becoming suspicious of the autoist’s
action Mr. Holmes looked downstairs
and saw a man takinir automobile
shoes out of the office on his should
er.
In a flash the garage proprietor
seized his revolver and cohered the tall
man with the inquisitorial air. Theni
he marched him downstairs and!
found two men in an auto outside,
the third man carrying a tire out of
the shop and two other tires piled on
the back of the car.
"Now If any of you make a move'
I'll blow you're heads off,” said Mr. i
Holmes with the air of a dime novel
hero, but thinking all the time what
would happen if one of the bunch
pulled a gun on him.
"Aw that’s all right, boss. We fel
lers been drinking and we didn’t mean
nuthin,’ " one of the men said.
"That’s all right too, but I’m not
drunk and you take those tires off that
car quick or there’ll be lots of
trouble,'’ was Mr. Holmes’ reply.
The two who were in the auto did
as directed but not before the tall
stranger had an opportunity to slip
around to the other side of the car,
jump into the front seat and get the
auto under way. Two shots failed to
halt the intruders and the last Mr.
Holmes saw of the three was the red
tail light vanishing down the road at
a mllp a. minntp Hin i
But when the three escaped they!
left their fourth comrade behind. By
this time Mr. Deegan had come down
stairs with a shot gun and a telephone
call to Perth Amboy Police head
quarters brought officer Gutowski in
the patrol in a hurry. The whole af
fair probably took less than two
minutes. And it wasn't till the whole
thing was over that Mr. Holmes real
ized how cool the early morning air
was as he stood at the entrance of his
garage in his pajamas.
When arraigned before the record
er this morning Hoberman told the
judge that he was twenty-six years
old and lived in Jersey City but oper
ated a jitney in Hoboken. He showr
ed a jitney operator's badge-. He said
that he was waiting last night at the
station in Hoboken with his auto to
take taxi passengers. The three men
were strangers to him, he said, and
asked to be taken for a joyride. The
party went to Newark and then de
cided to go to ICeansburg where they
knew some girls, he said. His driv
er’s license showed that he owned
the car, No. 108,879, N. J. license.
The unfortunate part of his story is
that Holmes told the recorder that
he was not the man who asked the
way, as a chauffeur naturally would,
but that it was he who was carrying
the tires into the automobile.
The garage was recently taken over
by Holmes and Deegan following a
robbery of the place not three weeks
ago. It was operated at that time
by Charles Fagin and several hundred
dollars worth of tires and tools were
stolen. Before that it had been a
favorite place for thieves who make
a practice of robbing lonesome coun
try garages.
Police of nearby cities have been
notified by Chief of Police Patrick J.
Burke to be on the lookout for the
machine, which is a Ford touring
car of the number given. It is prob
able that the thieves will desert the
car on some country road and try to
beat their way back to Hudson coun
ty on foot.

PRESIDENT WILSON WORKS ON MESSAGE, *
TO CONGRESS ON SHIP; PUN RECEPTION
Says Essex Candidate is Mobi
lizing “Wets” in Bold Stand
on Prohibition
By Special Correspondent.
TRENTON, July 2:—Emerson L.
Richards, former Republican senator
from Atlantic county, believes the
nomination of James R. Nugent in
the Democratic gubernatorial prim-,
ary would be highly dangerous to
Republican success in November, he
so declared in a statement issued
here today. He argues that -Nugent
is gathering to his standard all the
liberal voting strength in tlio state in
view of his bold stand against prohi
bition, and, therefore, it behooves
the Republicans to nominal e the
most liberal Republican candidate
they have to offset Nugent's strength.
This premise leads Mr. Richards to
the conclusion today, acCOi'd’iftg to hiS
statement, that State Comptroller
Bugbee is "sufficiently liberal” to off
set Nugent and he intends to work
diligently for the comptroller's- nom
ination from this time on.
The Richards’ declaration anent
Nugent is the latest interesting phase
of the already lively state political
campaign. However, Democrats here
today were of the opinion that his
admission of the Nugent strength was
a clever attempt to aid the Essex
man’s nomination at the Democratic
primaries believing he would be the
easiest for the Republicans to knock
down on the day of the November
election.
Republican Conference
The Republican State Committee
and the Republican county chairman
in conference here yesterday unani
mously endorsed the declaration of
principles adopted by the recent con
vention of the League of Republican
Clubs.
This action was taken following an
address by former Governor and
State Chairman "E. C. Stokes, whp
said that for some years the party
had not been very definite as to the
basic principles upon which its poli
cies were adopted. Therefore, he
called attention to the convention
declaration and suggested its en
dorsement by the state committee
and county chairman. Essex county
moved that this be done and Hud
son's representatives seconded the
motion which was then carried.
In the course of his address Mr.
Stokes said he is holding these con
ferences in order to get the party
leaders working and to put the party
affairs in order. After the primary
election is over, he declared his will
ingness to lay down the gave! as state
chairman, if the state committee de
sired, or if the candidate who might
be nominated fel he would prefer
another man in th..-> position.

Aside from these lew persons the

They had been called out at 2 o’clock
A. M. by the usual “landing party"
bugle, and the drowsy and faltering
steps of many of them evidenced the
fact that the start of this historio
event had not kept them awake in the
earlier hours of the night. They took
their accustomed place at the guy
wires and bars at the lower part of the
gondola.
The great airship then "was releas

and to test her lifting power loaded
as she was with more petrol than eve*
previously had been in her tanks, the
men at the gondolas were ordered to
release their hold.
The ship quickly rose, and just a«

down. After this test the men and

started toward the east doors of the
airdrome which had been opened,

EAST FORTUNE, Scotland, July 3
—The British dirigible R-34 started
on her long heralded trip to America ~
this morning with very little more of
ceremony than that which attended
the departure of the dirigibles for
their monotonous North Sea patrol
during the war.
Shortly before the first streaks of
dawn broke over the plains near here
the great airship was quietly taken
out of its airdrome and turned around
until her nose was pointed straight
west. The command "hands oft" was
given and the huge envelope quickly
rose. Before the height of 500 to
