Burke. His suspension was recommended by Mayor Frank Dorsey and Chair man William Wilson of the alderman lc police committee, and will be in force until he has been tried. According to the story Underhill told the chief he took the car out for a little spin and was returning from South Amboy when two racing cars passed him on the road near th£ "Hole in the Wall.” In order to avoid a collision he said that he veered to the side of the road and got stuck In the ditch. The appearances of the ear which is now at the garage of Holmes and Deegan on the other end of the Perth Amboy Bridge would in dicate that the car was going at high speed when It went into the ditch, Chief Burke said. Underhill went off duty at 3 o’clock yesterday afternoon. He was not in toxicated at that time. When he re turned to take the car out he had no authority from any member of the police department, but acted solely on his own responsibility, the chief said. This is the second suspension from the force in two weeks. A few days ago Patrolman Stanley Kosclelniak was suspended for sleeping while on duty. The mayor at that time stated that he proposed to clean up the weak -spots in the department and some ac tion is looked for by the Board of Aldermen at the meeting Monday ’ night. Special Officer William Buchan has ' been named as substitute for Under ■ hill. : Officer Christopherson Throws Himself in Front of Auto Saving Mother and Babies Mrs. F. Stets and her three little children, of 354 .Fayette street, prob ably owe the fact Chat they are all ; well today to Officer Frank A. Chris topherson, who risked his own safety to assist the children out of the way ; of an auto that had gotten out of the control of its driver. An automobile driven by Mrs. Hal lett Sibienski, under license number 166,801, was coming down State street in a northerly direction just before 8 o’clock last night at moder ate speed Just as Mrs. Stets pushed her baby carriage off the sidewalk to cross Smith street. Seeing the baby carriage and the two small children with Mrs. Stets about to cross the street Traffic Offi cer Christopherson signaled the car to stop and beckoned to the woman and the children to go ahead. Through some misunderstanding or loss of control of her machine Mrs. Sibienski continued to drive her auto across the street and in an effort to stop it swung directly in line for the children. Officer Christopherson im mediately threw himself between the car and the baby carriage, shoving it out of the way as he did so. Before Mrs. Sibienski could bring the car to a standstill Mrs. Stets and the officer had both been knocked down, but nope of the children were touched. Mrs. Stets suffered slightly from bruises and shock while Officer Christopherson was injured on the right kneecap. The attendance of a physician was not required. An auto bus, No. 156,964. owned and driven by Frank Fsdntra, was slightly damaged when it crashed in to a telegraph pole after it had re ; fused to stop with the application of i the brake* going down the ferry street hill yesterday. No one was in jured and the car was able to proceed to a garage under its own power. Heavy Auto Traffic Automobile traffic through this city yesterday for a holiday was heavy, many taking advantage of the day to get away from the heat of New York City to spend the week-end down along the coast. All day long there were streams of cars going over the county bridge, coming down through the state and those from the ferry from Staten Island. Although the rush over the ferry was not as great as that on Decoration Day, it is esti mated that over 1,200 passed over from Tottenville to this city during the day. The two ferryboats, the Tottenville and Perth Amboy, were kept going 1 back and forth all day. but even that did not prevent the cars from piling up in Tottenville, causing a wait for some time before the line was clear ed.

Samuel Sibersky, propietor of the Hotel Central, Smith and State streets, and George Brosma, bartender of the Hotel were charged by Roy S. Hall, special agent of the Department ol Justice with having offered for sale, and having sold, two bottles and a glass of beer. When the men were arraigned be fore United States Commissioner John A. Delaney both waived the formal ity of hearing and were released un der $500 bail each. They are under bail to await the action of the Fed eral Grand Jury. The complaint which was sworn to by the government agent does not specify what act or section is violated simply charging a violation of the statute in- this case is the War time prohibition act, which went into effect July 1 without any provision by Con gress for penalizing violators. It is possible that prosecutions might be made under some formal charge cl violating any law that had beer passed by Congress, although practic ally all of the laws ever passed by the chief legislative body of the United States have heretofore specified the penalty for violations. It is next to impossible to tell wher the Federal Jury will take up the case of the men arrested yesterday It may be that the jury would refuse to return an Indictment against the men unless some decision were made by the courts. There is no mentior imade in the complaint as teethe in Itoxicating properties f the beer tha | was purchased by the governmen ! agent for $0.50 or even as to its alco holic content. It is probable howevei that the beer will be analyzed by the I government and the evidence used be fore a jury in case the men shoulc ever be brought, to trial. The arrest follows repeated warn ings made by the government. JULY FOURTH ORDERLY HERE Few Accidents to Mar Day While Crime Is at a Low Record — With only a very few accidents, none serious, and with an exception ally small number of disorderly cases, Chief of Police Patrick J. Burke de clared that yesterday was one of the quietest ‘‘Fourths'’ in the history of the department. The principal cases in police court before Recorder Pick ersgill were automobile speeders. Seven persons were arrested by Officer F. Seiboth and fines totalling $16 5 were imposed. Hugh H. Quinn of 225 Union Hall, Jamaica, N. Y., and Dr. Max A. Maas, of 3,296 Clinton avenue, Newark, were fined $5 each for violation of traffic ordinances. S. Malarek, of 489 State street, was arrested yesterday by Officer John Kurpiel for violations of the flreworKs ordinance, restricting the sale of fire works to "harmless” contrivances. He was_flned $25 by Recorder Pick ersgill. Sentence was suspended on Peter Nelson, of 531 Smith street, who was arrested yesterday as drunk and dis orderly on complaint of his father. He will have another hearing Monday morning. Louis Hatacki, a laborer, of Port Reading, and Jack White, a lineman of this city, were discharged by the court after they had stayed in the "cooler" long enough to become sober after being arrested as drunk and dis oraeriy. Event for Polish Boys 8tarts at Holy Trinity Church and Ends at Rogan’s The Welcome Home celebration Is still continuing only now pn a smaller scale. The lads are being entertained freely and royally. Yesterday with the Holy Trinity church as the host one hundred and thirty-four soldier laddies were honored at a picnic at Rogan's Corner. Eleven o’clock was the hour set for the commencement of the parade. Amidni the hu3tle and hurry of last minute preparations the laddies who had just come out of army life acting as officers formed the guests into pa rade formation and started upon their way to Rogan's Corner, where the pic nic was held. Before departing for a joyous time a few minutes were given in memory of three boys who had made the supreme sacrifice, namely Michael Krakmali, Louis Ba lint and Shephen Kailmer. Following the parade and the play ing somo games, which were conclud ed with the eating of a prepared lunch which was quickly devoured by keen and healthy appetites, Father Joseph Szuchy made a short address, in which he mentioned how proud the church was to have among its mem bers such heroes as were being hon ored at that time and presented each lad with a badge as a token of love and esteem from the church. Mayor Frank Dorsey, who also at tended the function for a short while, speaking upon his part in welcoming the boys of Holy Trinity church home and also stating that he would en deavor to find wer„ for any of the re turned men who had none.

SGI \ Feels That Essex Man’s Candi dacy Will Materially Aid His Own Campaign By Special Correspondent. SOUTH AMBOY, July 6—Represen atlve Thomas J. Scully Is fully con vinced that the candidacy for th. Democratic nomination for govetnoi which former State Chairman Jame R. Nugent announced last week, wil very materially aid in his own can vass for the nomination. Mr. Scull: says the voters of the state will no in these times stand for any candidab who bears the stamp of the old re gime of machine politics and that Ir the primaries they will support th< man who bears the least resemblanci to the type. "It is colossal cheek for James R Nugent to seek the high honor o the governorship of New Jersey," saic the congressman today, "for Nugen represents all that is distasteful t( the independent voters of New Jersey and it must be the Independent voter: upon whom the Democrats will havi to rely for return to power in Novem ber. They cannot hope to win th< confidence of the people with any sucl candidate for it was such men tha caused the disasters that befell us ii other years. The people do not si soon forget where Nugent and hi crowd have always stood nor wha they could be expected to do if the; regained power and control of stab affairs. “The people of New Jersey woul< never sanction the methods employ ed by the Nugent machine in Esse: county and you can depend upon it the Republicans will make the bes possible use of the situation to ai( their campaign. Why, If Nugent ha< made a compact with some of thi Republican bosses to help their can j didate he could have choson no bet ter method to work out that com pact than by becoming a candidati ; himself. Some of the men who are li [close touch with the situation sus [ pect that that may be the exnlana [tion of the situation. Mark the boast I ing of Nugent as he proclaims hi; achievements as boss of the last Degis lature! He has the colossal nerve ti claim that but for him there wouli have been no legislation in the las session which could have been con strued as of any value whatever. Hi insults the intelligence and self-re spect of every member of that bod: when he fin unis his boss-ship witl such wild abandon. Nor is that all He hurls into the»teeth of the Hudsoi men and their leaders the gratuitou insult that they cannot be trusted that they broke faith with him am that if they should win with Senatoi Edwards they would doublecross i ’ when it came to the distribution ■> the patronage." o_i * ■_n__ udpidm ui finny odigc Denies it Carrie^JrN-l Considerable excitement was causec along water-front before noon today when the U.

County detectives and the Roosevelt police are investigating the peculiar circumstances of the murder last night of Leonard Garcia a discharged soldier, of 25 Houston street, Chrome. Garcia is oi Mexican birth and told the police before his death that he and tvcc Mexican friends had been attacked without provocation by foui Italians. He died on the way to the City Hospital, Perth Amboy where he was being rushed by the Roosevelt police. There was one bullet wound over the left breast. The story that Garcia was able to tell on his way to the hospital was unique in local police annals in that he was killed by a man whom he had never seen before and who had apparently no cause for the shooting. His story is corroborated throughout by Juan Riviera, 7 Hoffman street, Roosevelt who notified the Roosevelt po lice and is being held as a material witness. At about 1:30 o’clock last night Garcia, Riviera and anothei companion walked out the Port Reading Road and sat down undei c tree nsar the borough line to rest. Five minutes later, according to the men’s account of the affair, four Italians came up and asked in English, “Are you Italians or Mexicans.” >1 QIC -A.VJL CAiCWlUJf WU« W* WUV v»»» ; replied. With that one of the Italians pull ed out a long knife and looking at Riveria asked him insulting ques tions. Riveria fled down the road toward Roosevelt, he told the police. •— T After he had gone about fifty feet he heard a revolver shot and his friend’s cry for help. The shot added to Ri veria’s speed and when he arrived at police headquarters Officer Townley returned to the scene in a patrol. Garcia was found half conscious by the roadside, his other companion having fled. On the way to the hos pital he revived and was able to talk ciearlj' the officer said. ■v Searching parties were immediately sent out by the Roosevelt police and Woodbridge and Perth Amboy police stations notified. Owing to the thick ness of the woods and underbrush, and the timp that had elapsed while Riveria was making his way to the police station, no trace of the men could be found. It is also believed that the usual racket that is made on the Fourth assisted the men to make their getarWay the noise of the shot be ing undistinguishable amid the other reports of fireworks. Garcia who is about twenty-two, had been working at the factory of the United States Metal Refining Com pany at Chrome for about two years before he entered the service and had had an excellent reputation, accord ing to the police. The police have notified a friend in Rahway who is expected to be able to give the au thorities the address of the man’s mother in Mexico. Garcia was among the Perth Amboy draftees. The body is now at Coroner Flynn’s. Chief of County Detectives Richard Peltier has assigned Detectives Fur guson and Fitzpatrick to the case. The men, who are described as the dead man’s assailants, were not more than five feet six inches in height. Two wore coats and two were in their shirtsleeves. So far there is "nothing to show that there was any quarrel Between the men, who are supposed to be strangers. Roosevelt police say that there has been absolutely no ra cial trouble between Italians and Mex icans that has been reported to them. An autopsy will be performed on the body today by County Psysician 3uydam.

Letters from Interested Work* ers and Railroad Adminis tration Are Published Interest in the proposed new ferr: line between this city and Totten ville continues to b« manifested b; those interested in securing better con ditions for traffic between Perth Am boy and Staten Island, the matte: having recently been taken up witl Edward C. Niles, assistant to the di rector, of the United States Railroai Administration, by Mr. Fulton, of thi Standard Underground Cable Com pany. A letter from F. W. Fisher to thi EVENING NEWS follows: Editor EVENING KETM: I beg to inclose you herewith ! copy of a letter which our Mr. Ful ton received from Mr. Edward C Niles, Assistant to Director, Unttei States Railroad Administration. "Evidently Mr. Geo. G. Reynolds who came here with Mr. Brown o: the Staten Island Rapid Transit Rwy Co., has been very well instructed b; the latter because the tone of the let ter is in close accord with Mr Brown’s usual manner of answering complaints of this sort. "It is up to the residents of Stater Island, especially Tottenville, to uniti whole heartedly with Perth Amboi with a view to aiding In every wa; possible so that a charter may bi granted to the Perth Amboy-Totten ville Ferry Company so that we wil not have to wait long before we navi the-very much needed additional fern system here. It is my opinion tha the Staten Island Rapid Transit- Co has been doing some propagand; work on Staten Island as it is theii usual custom in their endeavor t< bring about a conflict of interests s< that the Tottenville people will no come to an agreement with reference to the location of a new ferry. "So long as the demand is being made that the ferry be at Mail street Tottenville, there is going t< be conflict because a good many pep pie living on Staten Island, including myself, feel that transportation wil be much delayed due to the blocking of Main street by trains coming t< and from the present stations of th< Staten Island Rapid Transit Railwaj at Tottenville. "If the new ferry ended at Mair street and if people using it were de layed a great deal, due to the block ing of the street, the service renderec by the new ferry Company certainlj .could not be as acceptable as if there was no restriction to free travel anc transportation. "Moreover, I feel confident that th< Staten Island Rapid Transit Rwy might have an unusual amount oi shifting to do around the busy hour! of the day so as to try to bring th< new ferry into disrepute. «. "If the town of Tottenville want! to draw traffic through Main street, ii should improve the paving of Mair street and the cross street near th< foot of Main street should be nicelj paved and should go directly frorr Main street to the new ferry, Witt signs which would induce travelers tr take the Main street route' to anf from the ferry.” “Yours very truly.
