f
Meeting and Election to be
Held Tonight on New Build
ing-Much Interest
KEYPOKT, Jan. 31 .—Tonight the
school meeting will be held at which
time the taxpayers and citizens ot
the borough will be given the op
portunity of voting for or against
the erection of a new high school
on the Broad street lots near South
Keyport, at a cost for school and
furniture of $148,500.
Considerable agitation is taking
place because of the above proposi
tion, for while many are for the new
school there seems to be equally as
many against the project and the
election which promises to poll an
enormous vote will in all probability
bo very close.
There is no dispute thai, the bor
ough needs more school facilities.
There is without doubt overcrowding
in the Broad street school and the
fifth grade is held in the West Key
port school which is not looked upon
with favor by the parents of the
children who are forced to go such a
distance with a school in the borough
proper. But the discussion which is
taking place today is mainly "how
I van tut? cuiiuuiuii utHL iil* miieuieii,
I by a new high school, or building: to
I lho present school buildings?"
This latter proposition is looked
upon with favor by a great number
who feel that if this is done the
overcrowding in the grades will lie
abolished. However, others claim
that this will not accomplish the
desired result as the overcrowding is
not particularly in the grades which
the East and West Keyport schools
I would contain.
I Another argument If. however
that if these schools were enlarge 1
they would take care of a great
majority of the children in the lower
gradeft and leave more room in the
Broad street school for the gram
mar grades and high school.
I However, the fact remains that
Keyport is without an up to date
high school. It lacks many im
portant feature.« which it should
have particularly a good gymnasium
which is required, which is not pos
sible in the present school. The
new high school plans call for an
up to date gymnasium well as for
many up to date features which an>
not in the Hroad street school.
One « if the great arguments
against the building of the school
is that it will increase the taxer,.
Of course this is to be çxpected. the
taxes would be increased if the
smaller schools were rebuilt.
Several of the prominent citizens
« » f the borough have come out de
cidedly against the proposition now
I before the citizens of Keypoii.
I while on the other hand several
: more equally prominent are for the
new school with increased lax"s,
but with a school which will provi.'e
every facility for education pur
poses.
The proposition rests entirely in
the hands of the citizens of the
borough who are asked to come ouï
to the meeting tonight and aft m
studying the question from all sides
to cast their votes intelligently

HIGHER WATER RATE
TI;1;NT0N\ Jan. .'11.— Holding
Hint their present rates arc insuf
ficient. unjust, anrl unreason» ble,
the Board of Public Utility Commis
sioners today granted the Soinerville
Water Company increased rates to
becomo effective with the hills ron
• i'Ted for tlie quarter ending March
33.
The company filed a schedule of
rates with the hoard for their ap
pzoval, hut these were held to he
too high. However. tin* board sat
isfied the company's need for addi
tional revenue, allowing them an in
crease which they think to be just
;ind reasonable.
The present meter rates of the
company, together with the new
rates to become effective by the
utility board's opinion, are as fol
lows: Present rates, 5,000 cubic
feet or less per month, which equals
15,000 cubic feet per quarter. $1.50;
over 5,000 and less than 10,000 cubuc
feet per month, $1.35; over 10,000
and less than 15,000 per month,
#1.20; over 15,000 and less than
30,000, $1.12; over $20,000 and in
«•xcess, 75c. The new rates as allow
ed by the board are as fallows:
For the lirst one thousand feet
f»er quarter, $2.75 per 1,000; next
5,000, $2.25; next 0.000, 2; next
0,000. $1.75; next 0.000, $1.50; and
in excess of 24,000, $1.25. The
board's order provides that a dis
count of ten per cent he allowed on
:i 11 bills for moftered service if the
same are paid within ten days from
presentation.
The present value of the com
pany's property is estimated by the
hoard to be $308,800.
