Protest Made at Hearing by
Frelingnuysen and Appleby
to Hoover
(Washington Correspondent of P. A.
Evening News)
' igorous protest was made against
the pollution of the New Jersey
beaches, rivers and streams by Sen
ator Joseph Frelinghuysen, Repre
sentative Appleby of Asbury Park
and Representative Radcliffe of Pat
erson at a hearing yesterday before
Secretary of Commerce Herbert
Hoover and other officials of the
commerce department having to do
with waterways.
They complained bitterly that the
ocean waters are being polluted by
tank steamers and vessels of all
* types burning oil and urged that
means be adopted to put an end to
the practice. The oil burning steam
ers putting out of New York and
especially those going southward
flush their engines off the Jersey
coast and throw off great quantities
of heavy oil that sinks to the bot
tom at first and is later washed up
upon the Jersey beaches, along the
shores and into the rivers and
This refuse is ruining some of the
beaches and doing serious injury at
other points. It is killing the fish
in the ocean and along the shores
and up the streams, they asserted,
and is keeping the shad out of the
rivers. Many millions of dollars are
invested on the Jersey beaches and
in the fishing industry along the
Jersey -coast, they said, and it is im
perative that steps be taken to abate
the nuisance.
Senators and congressmen and
representatives of Interested parties
from Maine to Florida joined the
New Jersey representatives in their
protest and endorsed prompt pass
age of legislation to correct the evil.
Senator Frelinghuysen introduced
a hill in the senate some weeks ago
to forbid such pollution of the wa
ters and will now press it with in
creased vigor.
Representative Appleby will intro
duce a similar bill in the House so
that action can be urged on the
measure in both houses. Secretary
Hoover is expected to send a strong
recommendation to congress endors
ing the measure which will aid ma
terially in the efforts to secure its

Alight 1 ask you to give this letter
a bit of space in your valuable paper
under the heading "Public Opinion.”
in the June 13th issue of the
NEW'S, under the heading, “Widow
and live children ousted tor failure
tv pay rent,” there appeared an ar
ticle to the effect that I ousted a
widow named Mrs. Valenceivitz and
her live children because of her in
ability to pay a bill amounting to
forty-eight dollars due me, seven
teen dollars of which is alleged in
the article to be a bill for liquor.
I want to say here that the abovt
entire sum was due me from her
husband for rent. Her husband is
at this time and was then a resident
of the State of Pennsylvania. Upon
being asked for the' rent the widow
replied that she would not pay it
and further retorted that she would
li ave her belongings during the
night and that x might whistle tor
my rent.
The following morning a large
truck backed up in front of her
home and the man proceeded to
move said belongings which were
strewn about the street ready to be
loaded on the truck, when a consta
ble arrived with an attachment
which, incidentally, was perfectly
legal, and attached the belongings of
the debtor to the extent of the bill.
No doubt a great number of peo
ple who read that article arrived at
the conclusion that X played the part
of the harsh landlord, trying to
squeeze a pgor widow with five chil
dren, but such is not the case. She
could have remained in that house
indefinitely and I would have waited
patiently for the rent, as I did during
the three months that it was in ar
rears, had she not flaunted her in
dention to dodge it in the way that
she did.

Lucl Garage, the ten-month-old
son of E. Garage, had a miraculous
escape from possible injuries Tues
day night when the child was run
over by a wagon driven by Walter
Fowler, employed by Perrine &
Buckclew, of this place, and escaped
injuries other than severe bruises.
The child was rushed to the office
of County Physician John L. Suydam
of this place and found to ho unhurt
other than as noted. The wheels
passed ever the abdomen of the
child. According to the statement
given by Fowler, the child was play
ing unattended in the roadway and
the fact that the horse that was
blind on the side that the child was
on prevented the animal from turn
ing out. No action was taken against
Fowler though an attempt was made
by the father to secure a warrant
for his arrest.
