considered his duty, endeared him
to everyone with whom ho came in

MM Chief Burke was born April 11.
P^^1854 in Egbertville, Htaten Island.
’ now known as New Dorp. At the
age of fifteen he secured his first po
sition, becoming connected with the
J. G. Crooke Tinfoil Company in
New York City. He worked with
that organization for a number of
yvais and then moved to this city
in 1875. and was employed on the
coal wharves of the Lehigh Valley
Railroad Company. While there he
rose from a minor capacity to a
position as foreman.
On December 19, 1887, Chief
Burke received an appointment as a
patrolman on the police force, be
ginning his actual term of service
on Christmas night. The night was
bitter cold and the chief said after
ward that only his disinclination to
quit on a tough job kept him from
stopping his police career then and
there. At that time he was one of
three patrolmen under Chief Albert

Paving of Amboy avenue and re

police matters, garbage removal and
the need of a new tire alarm and
police call system was the business
discussed last night at the commit
tee meeting of the Board of Aider
men. The discussion on the various
matters before the board lasted from
j early in the evening until 12 o'clock.
One of the most Important of these
;was the paving of Amboy avenue
which is to be done in connection
with the State Highway Commission.

to prepare specifications for this

' as the means of furnishing funds

police committee that two men of

regular patrol work.
The specifications for the removal
of garbage were discussed prior to
their approval on Monday night.
A representative was present from
the Game well Fire Alarm Company

Industrial Situation in New
Jersey Most Encouraging,
Report to Washington
Situation in All Parts of Coun- j
try is More Favorable-Still
Some Unemployment
CHICAGO. April 29 (By The As
sociated Press).—General improve
ment in the industrial situation, de
scribed in several instances as slow
but steady, particularly over condi
tions as they existed in the winter
months, was indicated In reports
gathered by The Associated Press!
from federal, state, labor and Indus-1
trial leaders in many states of the
Labor commissioners and other
officials in virtually every state from
which reports were received, not'
only declared that unemployment!
had materially been lessened in the
last few months, but nearly all were
optimistic concerning the future,
holding that the opening of season
able lines of work, such as agricul
ture. and road and building con
struction would help greatly in ab
sorbing the surplus of workers.
While no deffnite figure on the
present number of unemployed was
available, approximately 1,350.009
states ftoiH Which estimates were re
ceived. Large industrial states such
as New York. Pennsylvania and Mas
sachusetts contributed more than 1.
000,000 to this total. New York lead
ing with an estimated 600.000 out of
work. The total population of the
sixteen states was in excess of 43,
In some cities there was declared
to be a demand for skilled workers,
although the supply of common la
bor, generally was declared to be
larger than the demand. Some state
labor department officials definitely
stated that the unemployment crisis
had been passed in their states and
that a move toward normal condi
tions was In progress. Some local
ities reported that conditions already
virtually were normal, but from
most of the states reporting there
v/as declared to be unemployment in
many lines. Only in a few isolated
instances, however, was ii. declared
to be acute, and the general tenor
of the statements was one of op
timism. particularly with reference
to the future.
A program of intense building
activity and city and state improve
ment work was outlined in reports
from virtually every state, and it is
expected that many idlo workers
would find employment in a gigantic
construction boom which was indi
cated from many sources.
Monthly records of building activ
ity kept by the American contractor
since 1914 were broken by the total
valuation of building permits at
leading cities for Marcij. and the
aggregate of 3262,283.234 for 190
cities was believed by that publica
tion to be the largest for all time.
The number of permits issued last
month in those cities was 62.444.
Statements from some of the large
industrial centers were encouraging.
Detroit reported that employment
in the automobile industry was TO
per cent of normal, while the gener
al percentage of employment was 63
per cent of normal, as compared
with 30 per cent a year ago.
Among the brightest reports were
those from New Jersey, North Da
Rota. umo. i_ian ana «».
though they were accompanied in
one instance by the warning that
no outsiders were in demand. Ne
braska was listed May 1. 1921 among
the states with considerable unem
ployment with 12.000 estimated as
out of work. This year Frank A.
Kennedy, seoretary of the Nebras
ka State Department of Labor said
“Nebraska will be enabled to take
care of all its unemployed in another
four weeks; state and federal agen
cies are beginning to have difficulty
in filling calls for laborers; reports
from the state indicate no unusual
or serious ooifdition.’* He added,
however. "Nebraska will need no
outside labor, unless possibly some
harvest hands late in the summer.'*
There is a “job now open for every
body who wants to work,” in New
Jersey, according to Russell Eld
ridge. federal director of employ
mem in the State Department of
Labor. He added that there is short
