NEW BRUNSWICK, Jan. 28 Facts brought out and sentiment expressed at the public hearing yesterday before the Board of Free holders on the advisability of erect ing a county hospital for the car* of ‘tubercular patients seemed to in dicate that the county'! $48,000 swamp lanad hospital site and the 810,000 set of plans for a $300,000 structure would be shelved for an other year at least. While the frseholders as well as those interested in the prevention and cure df the dreaded disease agree that a local Institution would be a fine thing the data submitted at the hearing proved that Middle sex county is at the present time aavipg money by expending 315 for the care of her patients instead of Investing' In a hospital on a site not yet approved by the State Board of Health, and whlcji doubt la express ed would be approved. A delegation representing the New Jersey Anti Tubercular League Were present and submitted evl Bcnce of the advantages to be gain ed by the county in maintaining their own institution, but not fori the purpose of pressing the free holders in proceeding with the erec tion of a building, in the face of the high costs of construction. Both Director of the Board Wil liam S. Dey end Freeholder Louis J. Belloff spoke In favor of a hos pital in Middlesex county before the » bonding capacity Is again reached, Ihey pointing out that It was prac tically agreed last year that with an increase In the bonding capacity Allowed by the legislature a certain •Urn would be available for that •impose. Dr. E. I. Cronk. medical Inspector for the New Brunswick Hour 1 bf Health, a member of the anti tuberrular league, advised the board that in .his opinion the present site would be highly unsatisfactory for a hospital as the land is low and lump, while an Ideal location calls for a^high altitude. The doctor speaking further ventured the <»pin iuu that a satisfactory site could sot be found in the county, the'land not being of sufficient altitude and being subjected to the heavy sea fogs, this condition being t|e most •essential to avoid.' County Treasurer F. William Hil ker submitted figures which he had compiled from various reports showing the net cost to the county for the care of sixty-six pdtients at foreigrl institutions for one year amounted to $31,824. Figures pre sented also indicated a cost of main taining and erecting an institution for the care of aoout twice the num ber now oeing cared for would be at a cost of $162,408, or greatly more ■than double the present expense. Dr. F. B. Kilmer of this city, pres ident of the couijty league, who last year earnestly advocated the erec tion of such a hospital in the coun ty, presented the following letter to the board, requesting that noth ing further be done in the matter pending the settlement of building conditions and prices. His letter follows: “Much to my regret. I find I will not be able to attend the Hearing in regard to the proposed tuberculosis sanatorium.

Jan. 28. —1 Concerted demands lor the imme diate improvement of West avenue, Sewaren, were made before the Board of Freeholders yesterday, by one of the most representative dele gations of officials and business men that have ever appeared before the county board, and though nothing was definitely decided as to what improvement will be made the con census of opinion is that some re lief will be afforded. The agitation for a new road was first started by the township com mittee cf Woodbridge who have on repeated occasions appeared before the county board requesting that some relief be given and the matter has since that time engaged the at tention of the Perth Amboy Cham ber of Commerce and some of the leading merchants and business men of that city, who were present yesterday. Mr. Leon is Spokesman. Albert Leon as spokesman and representative of the Chamber of Commerce spoke of the deplorable and impassable condition of the thoroughfare, which extends from the Woodbridge creek to the Port Reading crossing, and of the great need from the viewpoint of business men of Middlesex county for the immediate improving of the road. The speaker also pointed out the possibility of opening a large tract for home sites immediately adja cent to West avenue, which in its present condition presents no in ducements to prospective home owners. “We feel, and insist that this road is the one important one to improve at this time,’' sam-Jdr. Leon, “and the Chamber of Commerce and the business men of Perth \Amboy re ques that immediate step*sb^ taken to give us the improvement.”'-.. That nothing unreasonable was being asked for was pointed out l$y the fart that the business of Perth Amboy, Woodbridge and Roose\eJt is derived to a large extent from .people using the road, and with the * proper repairs the business would be retained in Middlesex county where the merchants pay their taxes, instead of being diverted to Union county towns, as is now' be ing done. Speaking from the standpoint of his own business, Mr. Leon explained the great loss of time suffered IflT ■ Ttbnboy merchants *n making dellO* M eries of their merchandise In M waren. Port Heading.

This route was a^optOdHI the only means of preventing fwll great damage being done to t «B springs and bodies of truck*, the experience of making the over West avenue, the shortest and|H most direct route. ^ The statements of Mr. Leon ween, reiterated by W. M. Weiant of ■* waren. secretary and treasurer Of: the Perth Amboy Trust Company^ who said In part: "From my observation trading that should go to Perth Amboy nod goes to Elisabeth and Newark on account of the impassable condition of the road, but with the proper im provements made the merchants of Perth Amboy would use the road— the continuation of State street— thereby eliminating the lieaey grades to be found m going throufll Woodbridge." John Nevill, a Roosevelt mer clfant. in speaking of the great need of repairs, also spoke of the elimina tion of two sets of railroad grade crossings. the Pennsylvania at Wood bridge and the Lehigh Valley, at Perth Amboy, with the proper opening to both business and plena ure traffic along West avenue. That one of the largest industries of Perth Amboy has oeeh put to arj great deal of needless expense ha connection with their transportation problems on +hi« road was tadta|iiH 1 by General Manager W.
