The first woman ■B to cast her vote for tho approprla 4 4 tlon was Mrs. Jacob VVIokoff. closeiy p | followed by Miss Bertha I'axton and f S, the female votes rained so fast that ■ tho opponents to the measure soon I | lost heart and admitted defeat, f The session was call'd to order with the election of Dr. John 1-. Huy dam as chairman. Jacob Wiekoft wrj named secretary nad George K. Bal- | ley and Harry Groves tellers and John Waddy assistant clerk of the k voting. The call for remarks by Dr (taydant opened up many old sores. When I>r. Suydam called for <x ;M presston from the voters Mr. Jen-; H Dings moved that the discussion he dlaiiensed with and tho vote taken.1 B This was denied Mr. Jennings and he W soon opened up a cross-questioning I of tl.e school board and any who seemed, to have any knowledge of school affairs. He was decidedly against ths proposition and question ed the right of the board to charge but $$6 per year tuition when other, boards are charging $60. Ex-Mayor George Shultz, George] H. Bailey, Harold J. Davall, John 1 Waddy and others made remarks and I asked questions. With the proposi tion lost as far as outward appear ances went John H. Baromore, a member of the board for thirteen years and Its president for twelve, took the floor and addressed tho vot ers. Mr. Baremore anhl that the board had given the voters their best ef forts and had on October 27 made on appeal for the voters to meat with I the board to give their ideas as to what was needed. But three tax payers outside of the board answer ed, thus giving the impression that all was endorsed. “Now here are nearly two hundred voters -ull Cock-| ed and set’ Mr. Jennings has and I| fear not to tell him so as I am no longer a member of the the board." i In all his thirteen years, Mr. Bare more declared In tears, not one clti-| zen has ever come to him and told him how they appreciated the ef forts of tho board and called the board everything but thieves. Eoolt at Jamesburg's record for the past five years. The cost per pupil is the lowest in the whole county except that of Spotswood and that cannot be compared to Jamesburg’s enroll ment of over six hundred. \Vo> have spoiled the people by our stinginess and this outburst Is what the reward Is for ail our sincerity. In the cause of true Americanism and with the Interest of the children of the bor ough at heart I appeal to you all to vote for the appropriation. Mr. Bure more was loudly applauded and his appeal soon turned the sentiment from opposition to one that swept the appropriation to victory. Many were in tears os Mr. liaremore tear fully appealed to all to stand by the board. Tho thirty-two women who voted at the election and who have been mentioned as worthy of a tablet in the new schoolhouse who made the twenty-one majority possible are Mrs. Jacob Wlckoff, Miss Bertie Pax ton, Mrs. Charles Breckwedel, Mrs. William Goodman. Mrs. William Doy, Mrs. Milton I. Voorhees, Mrs. C. A. Deveney. Mrs, Harold J. Davall, Mrs. John Baremore, Mrs. John Jorgen son, Mrs. J. E. Marryott, Mrs. Frank Pownall, Mrs. David Smith, Mrs. William Brooks, Mrs. Emil Weisert, Mrs. J. C. Shinn, Mrs. J. B. Shaw, Mrs. Harry Groves, Mrs. George It. Bailey. Mrs. William O. Crosby, Mrs. Sarah Heath, Mrs. Harvey Stonaker, Mrs. Benjamin Goldstein, Misses Grace Breckwedel, Hilda Baremore, Sadie Whitlock, Nettle Fish, Bessie Baremore, Helen Davison, Tlllie Davison. Mrs. Charles Pelllno was refused a vote owing to the fact that her hueband had not received his first papers and was much disap pointed. She had her children with her as an evidence of her determina tion to support the measure that meant so much for them in the fu ture. HOUSE NOT LIKELY TO MOVE ON HOUSING SITUATION TRENTON. April 1.—The first test of strength on the bill to exempt now homes from taxation for a limited period In Order to relieve the housing situation In the state indicated that there is not a strong probability of this legislation giving the people of North Jersey any relief at this sesfcion. As semblyman Hansen’s measure on this subject, No. 399, was not brought to a vote in tho House yesterday because the Introducer evidently feared an adverse result Judging from the tone of the speeches on the measure. When Hansen saw the way the wind was blowing he also had laid over House No. 200 which would give tenants a reasonable time to find new quarters when ordered to move by landlords who want to Install other tenants will ing to pay higher rentals. Thoso who opposed House No. 199 raised the question of Its constitution ality upon the ground that It would bo discriminating in favor of one class of property and tlie constitution of New Jersey provides that ail prop erty shall be taxed uniformly. Democratic Leader Barrett, of Es sex, raised this point, saving that he favored the relief aimed at by the bill. Assemblyman Toxer, of Bergen, said George L. Record, speaking at the hearing upon the bill admitted its constitutionality is debatable. Both No. 199 and 2i>0 are being advocated by Director of Revenue and Flnanco Gannon, of Jersey City, to relieve the housing conditions nkst only In Hudson county, but In other parts 'of North Jersey. The Democratic assemblyman urged the passago of the bill. Mr. George of that County, said the measure is badly needed to encourage building. Mr. McAteor, of Hudson, declared: "I did not know there were so many constitutional lawyers tn the House. This ts not the place to pass upon the constitutionality of bills, thait w ork Is for the courts. In the opinion of very good lawyers, this bill is absolute ly constitutional and is aimed to re lieve a very bad situation In New Jer sey.” Realizing that with some members absent the bill and Its companion would likely be defeated If brought to a vote, Assemblyman Hansen asked that further consideration of both bills be deferred until a more propitious ^easion^ MUCH BUSINESS BEFORE SOUTH AMBOY COUNCIL _ Bv Ssertol Corvesvendeal SOUTH AMBOY, April 1.—A com plaint was received by the council at its meeting Tuesday night stating that the Public Service trolley cars refuse to run to the end of the city line.
