Freeholders Take Action on
Tearing Up of Road Laid
at Fords and N. Market
Old Bridge Residents Have
Petition Before Board for
Paving of Highway
County roads that have been rebuilt
and repaired and are in a good state
of repair will not be disturbed in
the future, for the purpose of laying
gas and water mains, according to
the expressions voiced by members
of the Board of Freeholders yester
Four roads recently paved wore
mentioned as the ones to be opened
in the applications before the board
for consideration. After the re
quests for permits had been receiv
ed, Director William S. Dey in no
uncertain terms opposed the open
ing of these roads and from the en
suing discussion, the decision was
reached that the permits would not
be granted.
To Go Voder Roads
As an alternative the board mem
bers suggested that such connec
tions be made by tunneling under
the road, the work however, to be
done under the direct supervision
of Road Supervisor John Leisen.
The roads for which the requests
were received were the concrete
and warrenite paved Woodbrldge
Rooeevelt road; Amboy avenue in
Metuchen, and Fords pa\’ed recently
with a similar material and the
New Market road which was given
a bituminous top dressing this year.
Short and Snappy
Short and snappy public sessions
are to be in vogue hereafter with
the county governing body, the first
of its kind in many years having
been held yesterday.
Director Dey stated yesterday as
the board convened for the regular
• weekly session, “that there would be
no recess taken,” which has been the
custom for time immemorial, but
that “the business of the day would
be carried through to completion
and in public.”
In striking contrast to the previous
meetings, when the board convened
at the regular hour, held a brief pub
lic Session and then adjourned for
a caucus lasting from one to three
hours, when a public appearance
was again made for the purpose of
adjournment, was the meeting yes
terday‘which started on vime and
adjourned in one hour.
Petition Is Received
Though the season for requests for
, road building is usually made late in
V the fall or early in the spring, the
' freeholders have just received a pe
Itition bearing the signatures of about
one hundred Old Bridge residents,
asking that the Old Bridge-Matawan
road be given immediate attention.
About $30,000 has been spent in
that locality during the road build
ing season, but the freeholders favor
an additional appropriation if pos
sible, which would permit of paving
the road asked for.
No decision was reached but the
matter will be taken up again next
week and in the meantime the coun
ty engineer will be requested to pre
pare an estimate of the cost.

^WASHINGTON. Sept. 16.—Inter
national Revenue Bureau officials
frankly acknowledged today that
heads of families may, upon filing of
notification with local revenue collec
tors, manufacture 200 gallons of
wine yearly for home use.
Treasury regulations making effec
tive such a provision of the law were
issued by Internal Revenue Commis
tioner Roper with the approval of
Secretary McAdoo in October. 1918.
»nd because of the general lack of
public knowledge respecting the pro
vision Congress never has enacted
legislation nullifying it, officials said.
The law applies specifically to ex
emption from payment of tax, offi
:ials point out, but in its application
makes manufacture of wine at home
possible provided the manufacture is
p.y the head of a family and the wine
produced be not sold or removed
from the place of manufacture.
POOHX. Sept. 16—The strong
'deling against the ultra conserva

:he Hohenzoliern family leaving
Sermany and coming here, where
Ihey are expected to remain until
renditions in Germany are favora
ble to their return.
The ex-emperor's daughter, now
the Duchess of Beunswick, accom
panied by the duke and their chil

Regretted He Was Officer
Of Law When He Saw Man
Beating Little Daughter
A cruel beating administered to a»
child was brought to light in the po
lice court this morning when Ben
Pominak, of 132 Fayette street, was
arraigned before Recorder Pickers
gill on a charge of beating his daugh
Officer Paul Layden witnessed the
incident and made the arrest, in his
testimony in the case this morning
T.ayden said he regretted the fact
that he was a policeman when he
saw Pominak beating the child since
otherwise he would have given the
man what he had coming to him
for such an act.
The mother was. present at the
hearing and when asked why she
allowed her daughter to be beaten
replied that the child deserved her
punishment. This statement caused
the recorder to indignantly inquire
what kind of human being she was
to permit such a thing. Judge Pick
ersgill continued, “How in the name
of all that is human, such cattle as
you can b© admitted to this country,
I fail to see. Such conduct is ab
solutely brutal.”
Pominak was sentenced to serve
six months in the county workhouse
for his assault.
Freeholders Find Conditions
Satisfactory Following In
spection This Week
Conditions at the Morgan ordnance
depot were found satisfactory during
an inspection trip by the Board of
Freeholders this week.
At a meeting of the board here
yesterday it was reported that the
place was guarded by about thirty
men of which number about half
are detailed as firefighters.
Their inspection disclosed that
there are no dangerous explosives
left at the camp with the exception
of gun cotton which is unconfined
and which in the event of fire would
merely burn.
Act on Padded Cell
Estimates for installing a punish
ment and insane padded cell in the
county jail were received, though
action toward making the purchase
was deferred pending a further in
vestigation by the jail committee.
These ceils which are portable and
mounted on wheels can be purchased
for $1,150 and can be assembled for
an additional $125. This equipment
is urgently needed as Sheriff Wyckoff
points out the present facilities are
inadequate to care for refractory or
insane inmates.
Charged with being one of the ring
leaders in the smuggling of liquor
in New Jersey and Pennsylvania,
Charles Holden who conducts a
beauty porlot here, was arrested by
a United States marshal and held in
$10,000 ball.
United States District Attorney
Pearce declared that the arrest of
Holden was one of the most import
ant in the campaign against rum
"From information in our posses
sion," he said, “Holden has been
the financial agent and has been
acting as the go-between for the
north and south.”
Walter Harris, of New Brunswick,
has been arrested in Sandusky, O.,
and a car belonging to Mike Deleson
of Spring Alley, New Brunswick,
which he had in his possession, is
being held by the police of that
place. This information was re
ceived by the prosecutor's office to
day and extradition proceedings will
be started at once.
Deleson reported to the police
last Saturday that he had loaned
his car to Harris for $10 for the
purpose of making a trip to Prince
ton Junction. Harris did not re
turn with the car and Deleson de
cided to notify the authorities. The
prosecutor’s office sent circulars to
the police of Pennsylvania and
Ohio and his arrest followed.
Idon Claim Is Filed
A lien claim has been filed in the
county clerk’s office by I. Stark and
Company of Brooklyn, against the
Eastern Potash Company of Raritan
township. This action has been taken
to collect the balance due on a power
plant installment costing $5,500.

Milk Association Active
Despite Denial; Fight
Between Two Members
In spite of all denials to the con
trary there is a milk dealers asso
ciation in this city. A meeting of
the association was held late yester
day afternoon in the office of Coun
selor Jacob S. Karkufl and is said to
have been called to smooth out the
differences between Peter C. Wiener
and Rubin Brass. Wiener has had
a warrant sworn out for the arrest
of Brass on an assault charge re
sulting, it is said, from a dispute
over empty milk bottles. Brass will
be summoned to appear in court to
morrow morning to answer to the
charges made by Wiener.
The Perth Amboy Milk Men’s
Benevolent Association was incorpor
ated Aug. 6 with registered oflice
166 Smith street, Counselor Jacob
S. Karkus was named as the agent
in charge. It is understood that the
fee charged for admittance to the
association is $50.
According to the incorporation
papers, the purpose of the associa
tion is for the protection of its
members in the distribution of milk
and dairy produces, from any harm
or mistreatment which they might
suffer in dealing with others. Also
to adhere to upright and uniform
business, promptness in dealing
with their trade, the establishment
of credit and protection system for
the benefit of its members and to
regulate and make uniform the sale
of milk and dairy products.
The association comprises the
leading dealers of the city, the in
corporators being: Anton J. Bund,
A. J. Stehlgens, Jr., Charles Stehl
gens, Steve Vereb, Joseph Karo, An
drew Sutch, John Kershner, Ben
Pearl, Ruben Brass, Peter C. Wei
ner, Max Jaffe, Charles May, Felix
Jaznakowski, Nathan Talisnick, Sol
omon Simon, Fred Stehlgens, Abe
Zarchin, Max Duchin and Isaac
The trouble which is said to have
been the cause of the meeting yes
terday, wa; brought about when
Brass and Weiner it is said could not
agree over the collection of empty
bottles. Although efforts were made
today to locate both Brass and Wein
er, a9 well as others who had at
tended the meeting they proved un
succesful. However, according to
the story being rumored about the
city, Weiner called Brass a vile name
and Brass in return hit him in the
face. This led to the warrant being
sworn out for Brass’ arrest on the
assault charge, which will be heard
by Recorder Harold E. Pickersgill
tomorrow morning.

People of Western Section
Want Tracks Depressed
When Elimination Comes
People Point Out That Low
ering Tracks Will Cost Less
Than Elevating
Elimination of the grade crossings
through this city is receiving serious
consideration by the citizens residing
west of the Central Railroad of New
Jersey tracks and from present in
dications these people will have con
siderable to say when it comes to
approving the plans for this work
that are to be submitted to the city
by the railroad company wifhin the
next few weeks. Although the peo
ple west of the tracks are unanimous
in their opinion that the grade
crossings should bo done away with,
they have their own ideas a*** to how
the railroad should go about this
A survey made in this section yes- j
terday brought out the fact that all i
are in favor of the lowering of tho
tracks, but not raising them over the
crossing. Some, howrever, in favor
of the lowering of the tracks, say
that they do not see how this can be
done, while others maintain that it
would be a much simpler undertak
ing to lower the tracks and could be
dono for considerably less than at
w'ould cost to elevate them.
Would Divide City
The main objection to the eleva
tion is that it will cut the city in
half and the merchants point to
Rahway, Elizabeth and Newark as
examples that should not he follow
ed by this city. They maintain that
the dividing of a city by the eleva
tion of the railroad tracks means
that one-half of the city dies, and
from their standpoint the half that
would be injured by tho elevation
through this city would be that west
of the railroad tracks.
It is pointed out by those In favor
of lowering the tracks that this
could be done by making some
changes in the present tracks east of
Washington street, which w’ould
probably mean that the whole sys
tem in that section of the city would
have to be changed. It is pointed
out, however, that the railroad com
pany would not have to go deep Into
the ground as ornamental concrete
bridges could begin at a point in
Smith and Market streets and extend
over the railroad in such a manner
that the business section of the city
could be benefited and the railroad
company would not ha\o to lowrer
tho tracks but a few feet.
Although great interest is being
taken by the people of this section
in the project, they will take no
definite action in the crossing mat
ters until the plans, which the rail
road company claims will be A fa
vorable surprise to the city, are sub
mitted for approval.
A committee session of tho Board
of Aldermen will be held tonight for
the purpose of going over the various
matters scheduled to come up for
action before that body at their reg
ular meeting Monday night.
The ordinance authorizing the ap
propriation of $80,000 school bonds
to pay the cost of building an addi
tion to tho high school will come up
for second and final readings on
Monday night and bids will be receiv
ed for the purchase and removal
from their present locations of the
sheds now occupying part of the
site whore the now school addition
will he built. Bids will also be re
ceived Monday night for the curbing,
grading and laying of a sewer in
Cortlandt street and for a sewer in
Jeffreys street.

Matter on Coming Confer

No Definite Formula is given
in Harding’s Agenda for
Disarming the World
TOKIO, Sept. 16.—(By the Asso

responsible circles here today that

Program for Conference
WASHINGTON, Septy. 16. — The
agenda proposed by the United States
for the conference of Far Eastern
problems and limitation of arma
ments comprises a list of subjects
that might properly be discussed, but
does not recommend what action
should bo taken on any question.
It has been made clear to the gov
ernments interested that the pro
gramme submitted by this country
contains nothing in the nature of an
effort to commit any to a policy that
another country might desire the
conference to register, but contains
only these subjects the United States
thinks the conference should discuss.
No formulae regarding a limitation
of armaments was included in the
agenda proposed by this government.
This subject, as appearing in the pro
posed agenda, is covered in the most
general terms, barely going beyond
the statement in the original invita
tion sent out by President Harding.
The organization of the conference
is still an open question. The way in
which the principal question or arm
aments and Far Eastern problems
will be dealt will be left to the dele
gates themselves. The object of the
Conference, it was pointed out, is to
reach conclusion and the delegates
will be the best qualified to decide
how this may best be accomplished.

LONDON, Sept. 16.—(By The As
sociated i'ress).—Delations between
England and Ireland today stood as !
they did before Eamon de Valera
eamo to London, July 14 to discuss i
a possible basi-s for the ending of the
controversy. Tho Sinn Fein leader
yesterday made public his note to
i he premier allirming his stand that
Irish republican representatives
could enter tho conference only as
delegates of an independent power
and Lloyd Georgo quickly announced
cancellation of his Invitation to Ir
ish leaders to a parley at Inverness.
It was made plain that he could
not meet the Sinn Fein leaders if "
the claim of Irish independence

forces conducted a rigorous search
of houses in Vere street, the center i
of yesterday’s disorders and the
scene of many recent riots. The |
search began at 10:30 o’clock and
was not concluded until 4 this* morn* }
The street was Isolated by troops
and swept by searchlights mounted
on armored cars, while lorries filled j
with police patrolled the neighbor- j
hood. There were no arrests.
Hope Still Expressed.
DUBLIN, Sept. 16 (By The Asso- !
elated I’ress).—Although popular
newspapers described the letter of
Lloyd Georgo cancelling the arrange- j
ments for the Inverness conference J
as a bombshell, there seems no dis- I
position on the part of the public in
generp.1 to consider tho Irish peace
negotiations at an end, the premier’s
reference to the inevitable delay giv
ing rise to hope.
The prevailing indications here are j
that the desire is to avoid a breach i
in the negotiations, and that a dili- j
gent search is in progress for a for
mula that will enable the proposed j
conference to be held without sacri
fice of principles on the part of eith
er side.
The next move is with Mr. Lloyd j
Georgo and further communication j
from him is awaited. Leaders of the
l)ail Kireann expressed no concern
over the prospects of a general elec- |
tlon taking the view that there was
no probability of any party attemp
ting to fight the Sinn Fein on com- %
promise line.
There is considered to be no Im
mediate probability of a rupture of g
tho truce.
