William Gardner from the commit

Cost of Extending Maple St.
Would be Small-Action
Monday Night
WOODB RIDGE, July 21—Til·
many false rumors floating about the
township in connection with the
planned improvement of extending
Maple street to liigh street are fast
being nailed as such. One of the ru
mors which created considerable
sensation was that conccrning the
cost of this work. According to the
rumors it would cost in the neigh
borhood of $18,000, when in reality
it would cost about $1,200. This
small cost for the extension of the
street .is due in a great extenfto the
action of Arthur Dunham, the owner ,
of the property through which the
street is to pass, in assuring those
who are in favor of the street that 1
ho will sell the land necessary for
the improvement to the township for
exactly what he paid for it
Not only has Mr. Dunham lei it
be known that he is willing to seil
the land at cost price but announces
he is also willing to lay sidewalks
from the present end of Maple
street to High street at the sam?
time the street is being extended.
There seems to be much concert
ed action in Woodbridge against
this much improvement. Some υί
til·· objectors do not even reside on
Maple street, but have gone so far
as to put petitions in circulation
against the improvement, and from
latest reports have engaged legal
talent to represent them at the
It is understood that some have
formed the opinion that the cost of
this improvement must be paid
within a stated period, but from
officials in the township it is learn
c l that the assessment for work of
this kind may be levied for a period
of from seven to ten years, thus as
suring no hardship to the property
owners as far as the payment of
the improvement is concerned.

Edwards Platform
TRENTON, July 21:—Anyone
who thinks prohibition is dead as a
political issue would be disillusioned
b> a talk with Edward I. Edwards,
governor of New Jersey.
Everybody knows Edwards is wet
politically. Ho was elected gover
nor on a wet platform, and he's juct
as wet as over in his present fight
to go to the United States senate
to succeed Senator Frelinghuyeen. I
And, if he gets to the senate, he
promises to start something. Two
things, in fact:
First, legislation legalizing beer
and light wine.
Second, war on the Anti-Saloon
League and kindred organizations.
"The saloon has passed forever
from America," he says, "and I am
opposed to its retyrn. But I am in
l'avor of modification of the Vol
stead act to permit manufactura
and sale of beer and light wines un
der federal supervision, all manu
facturing to be done under a pure
fo..»d act.
"If that cannot be done legally. Τ
am iri favor of modification of the
eighteenth amendment so that it
can be done."
Governor Edwards told ΝΕΑ Ser
vice he believes prohibition modifi
cation is inevitable. Explaining his!
war on what he calls professional
reformers, he says:
Political lobbies and propaganda
should be strictly regulated. The
Anti-Saloon League maintans a pow
erful lobby and secretly financed
propaganda. Such an organization
should be compelled to be incorpor
ated and file a public accounting of
where its money comes and how it
is spent.
"1 introduced such a bill into the
New Jersey legislature and it was
promptly squelched. Γη» going to do
it again—aimer! at the Anti-Saloon
League—if I get to the United States
Controlling "pernicious lobbies,"
says Edwards, Is as Important as
controlling campaign expenditures.
And one of his platform planks Is
"antl-Newberrylem." Others are re
duction of Income taxes; control b\
tho states rather than the federal
iovernment, of funde spent for public
health, child hygiene, and public
The main issue, however, is pro

it "the llvest thing that every hap
"I'm against the hypocritical sit
uation that has been created," he
says, "it's a deceit. Basically, the
unrest in this country Is due to pro
hibition. It has not reduced crime
—but has Increased It.
"Of course, I want It understood
that I yield to no one In respect
for law and Its enforcement. It is
because I am convinced that public
opinion makes it Impossible to en
force many existing laws that I am
determined to have them changed so
as to make them possible of en
Governor Edwards' friends are
making considerable political capi
tal out of that fact he Is politically
wet and personally dry, while they
