NO OBJECTION MADE
TO BUDGET FOR 1923
The 1923 budget figures as set
down by the aldermen last week
were not objected to in any way at
the public hearing held in city hail
I st night. Consequently a resolu
tion was unanimously adopted plac
ing the 1923 appropriations, exclu
sive of schools, at $968,685.37, this
being an increase of about $47,600
over last year's budget. Although
the appropriations for 1923 show an
increase of $47,600 the amount to
be raised by taxation is only $20,0C0 ;
more.
It will not be until February that
the tax ordinance can be adopted
by the aldermen as it is not unt'l
then that the school board's figures
are obtainable. The aldermen are
empowered to increase or decrease
their budget ten per cent within
forty days from the adoption of the
budget.
FOR MUNICIPAL
MILK STATION1
Clark Says He Will Bring Up
Matter After First of
New Year
The establishment of a municipal
milk station in this city similar to
that successfully co-operated in Rah
WBty will likely be taken up by the
âTdermen ëarfy next year, it was in
dicated in statements made during
the aldermanic meeting: last nights
This action by the city Will be taken
as. a means of remedying the exist
ing· milk situation, there being talk
by the city fathers last night of an
investigation into milk conditions in
Perth Amboy.
Alderman Benjamin A. Riedy and
John J. Clark had clippings from
the Evening News containing a let- J
ter written by Peter P. Weiner tell
ing of the monopoly now existant in
this city making it practically impos- I
slble for independent dealers to do
any business, and these aldermen
called the attention of the remain- j
der of the board to the charges made
by Weiner in his article. A sugges
tion was made that the prosecutor's
office bo requested to carry on an in
vestigation into Perth Amboy's milk
situation but no formal action was
taken by the board.
The matter was dropped with the
understanding that it be taken up
again eariy next month. In the
meantime a survey of the manner
in which other municipal milk sta
tions are operated will be made. Un
der the system now used in Rah way
raw milk is sold by the city to those
who come to the depot for it. No de
liveries are made to the homes.

Senator Edge's Friends Build- !
ing Up Strong Machine
For 1924 Campaign
BY GEORGE H. MANXLNG
Washington Correspondent of the
Perth Amboy Evening: News
WASHINGTON, Dec. 30.—Ever
since he first caught his breath after
the tremendous shock of the over
whelming defeat for re-election
dealt him by Governor Edwards on
November 8. Senator Joseph S. Fre
linghuysen has been preparing his
plane to run against Walter E. Edge
when the latter comes up for re
election in 1924.
Half a dozen of the New Jersey
Congressmen became quickly con
vinced of Frelinghuysen's intention
after exchanging only a few brief
words with him following the elec
tion. Mr. Fr'elinghuyscn appeared
stunned over his decisive defeat by
Governor Edwards, the congressmen
said, but was quite determined to
get quickly- back into politics· ?tr;ain;
He went so far, they said, as to sug
gest that nobody could tell what
would, happen two years hence and
that the happenings then might sur
prise everybody.
Senator Frelinghuysen has gone so
far as to carefully go over the situ
ation and discuss the prospects with
Representative Francis F. Patterson
of Camden, who managed his cam
paign last fall. When asked for his
adyice Mr. Patterson urged that
nothing be done for the present in
the way of making an announce
ment; but that the matter be allow
ed to drift to see what will turn up
later.
Senator Edge and his friends are
thoroughly acquainted with Senator
Frelinghuysen's desires and purposes
and are leaving no stone unturned
to insure his re-election. Since be
fore the November elections they be
gan building up a machine, the like
of which Jersey has not known in a
decade, "with a view to having it in
thorough working order, prepared
to meet any attack by 1024.

City Plan Board May
Get $5,000 tor Work;
First Report Published
It now seems likely that the 1923
appropriation for the City Plan Com- )
mission will be $5,000, members of,
the Board of Aldermen having- dis- i
cussed this matter last night and
practically decided to change the
budget figures after January 1.
This commission last year was;
given $2,500 with which to work, '
all of this being expended in having
a preliminary survey of the city
made by city plan experts. This
year the City Plan Commission re
quested a $10,000 appropriation but
the aldermen did not deem it wise
to meet the request owing to the
manner in which all other appro
priations to municipal boards were
being kept down.
At their original budget confer
ence this year the aldermen are re
ported to have fixed $3,000 as the
city plan appropriation for 1920.
this being only a $500 increase over
that of this year. On the night that
the aldermen were to take formal
action on the budget, however. Pres
ident Peter C. Olsen, of the city plan
board, submitted to the aldermen
Aldermen Says Board's Am
bition is to Create Sinecures
for Chosen Few
The action of.the health board in
adopting a· resolution for presenta
tion to the aldermen, serving notice
that the health commissioners
would not ask for additional appro
priations unless forced to do so by
an emergency and that the work o.'
that department would be curtailed
in order to keep within the appro
priation, was attacked by Alderman
John J. Clark at the meeting of the
council last night.
The resolution was before the al-,
dermen and after it had been read
was ordered spread upon the min
utes in full. Alderman Clark then !
said in part:
"This resolution of the health I
board is the most unparliamentary
thing I have ever seen. It is no
more than a reprimand to the
Board of Aldermen. The health
commissioners should be ashamed
of themselves for signing their
names to such an epistle.
"The- health department is now*
loaded down with sinecures and it
is the ambition of the commission
ers to add at least one more sine
cure in the form of the Schick test.
I have consulted two doctors and
read about the Schick test and have
come to the conclusion that it is a
big joke and a lot of humbug·. This
"chick test sinecure would cost the
city $3,000."
The health board's appropriation
for 1923, Alderman Clark pointed
out, is $27,500, Uie same amount
given that body to operate this year.
Of this amount, the fifth ward alder
man said, $25,000 is paid out for
salaries to employes of the health
board.
Benjamin Goldberger was the only
member of the Board of Health
present when Alderman Clark made
his remarks about the health' board's
resolution. Mr. Goldberger did notj
uddress the board.
NO GENERAL AMNESTY !
WASHINGTON. Dec. 30 —Before

be "no general amnesty."

Κ
copies of the report of the prelimin
ary survey of the city made by the
Technical Advisory Corporation of ι
New YorkT^The aldermen, after look
ing: through this report, decided that |
the work was of more importance ι
then they had considered it pre- :
viouslv and decided upon $4,500 as '
the 19 23 figures, this being- an in
crease of $1,500 over their original
figures. ,
Since the aldermen received these
reports from the city plan commis
sion and have had an opportunity to
study them they have realized the
importance of this work and the dis-1
cussion last night would indicate j
that another $500 will be added to
the appropriation after the first of ;
the year making the City Plan Com -<
mission's 1923 appropriation $5,000.
Alderman John S. Clark last night:
"started the ball rolling" in suggest
ing that an additional $500 be
granted the city plan body. After
some discussion it was decided not
to make this addition at once but
rather to wait as the law gives the
aldermen forty days in which to add
or detract an amount not more than
ten per cent of the total appropria
tions.
The preliminary report on city '
planning as made by the Technical,
Advisory Corporation and presented ι
to the aldermen is as follows:
Perth Amboj's Future
The location and natural sur
roundings of Perth Amboy offer
great possibilities for industrial
growth.
Practically two-thirds of the en
tire perjmeter of the city is water
front, with sufficient depth of water
for docking purpose» at nearly all
points, especially in; the Arthur Kill
on the easterly front and also west
of Sandy Point on the Karitan River.
The water .is quite shallow to the
south and southwest of Ferry Point.
(The water front is divided in
abolit the following proportions:
.Less than 20 per cent is devoted |
to non-industrial purposes, as ;
for dwellings, public parks,
playgrounds, etc.
Approximate!}' 30 peu· cent ig
vacant and suitable for indus
trial development.
The remaining 50 per cent is |
occupicd by industrial enter- j
prises in a scattered way and
is capable of sustaining a much i
"more intensive use.
All of the industrial area,
whether vacant or occupied, is
tfell served by, or easily acces
sible from, railroad facilities.
Excluding those properties which
have harbor frontage, 1.2 miles of
railroad line within the city are pre
empted by adjoining existing in
dustries. while 2.8 miles are avail
able for immediate further utiliza
tion in connection with vacant in-1
dustrial properties.
As far as the transportation of
raw materials and finished products
is concerned. Perth Amboy, within
its present boundaries, can more
than double its industrial activities.
In order that these industries may
prosper, it is essential that a con
stantly increasing number of work
men be supplied. It is probable that
three-quarters of the workers so re
quired will have to find homes for
themselves and their families in
Perth Amboy. it

FINANCE PUN
FOR SHIP CANAL
Mayor Donnelly, of Trenton,;
Has Suggestion for Right
of Way Purchase
MORRIS CANAL SCHEME;
Lehigh's $75,000 Would Be:
Used for the Proposed
State Waterway
TRENTON, Dec. 30. — Mayor
Frederick \V. Donnelly of this city
today went on record as favoring the
purchase by the state ot the right
ot-way for the New Jersey ship
canal, from Morgan 10 Bordentown,
using for that purpo-re the ÇSîû.uOO
to be received by New Jersey ironi
the Lehigh Valley Kailroad Com
pany in connection with the Morris
Canal abandonment. Mayor Don
nelly contends that if this policy is
carried out would shorten by one I
year the preliminaries incidental tof
the actual beginning of work upon the
canal, and wouli aJso obviate the!
great cost of conducting a state rei-|
erendum upon the proposed million-1
dollar "bond issue for the acquisition;
of the right-of-way.
it is the Trenton executive s pur
pose to %sk the législature to pass'
the necessary legislation providing j
Tor thi transfer of the Morris canal j
funds to the ship canal project· If
this were done, the way would be
opened at once for federal appro
priations for the work of construct
ing th~ cariai. No money would he
expended by the state on the richt
of-way purchase uniil the national
government first appropriated the
money for the construction of the
ship canal, the cost of which has
been estimated bet we η $18,000,000}
and $40,000,000, according to thej
type tt£ canal decided upon.
The local mayor toaay said that
he would urge the use of the Morris
Canal funds as the easiest, quickest
and most economical means of has
tening the construction of the ship
canal. It is the mayor's belief that
the transfer of funds accruing from
an old canal to the purchase of a
big, trans-state waterway would be
a proper and logical expenditure of
such funds, in view of the vast ben
efits that will come to the people of
the state. The ship canal, Mayor
Donnelly points out. will form the
iast <onnecting link of the inter
coastal waterway tapping the Atlan
tic seaboard and will bring a new
era of commercial prosperity to the
state. The canal itself will afford
sixty-five miles of manufacturing
sites along its course, and» with the
establishment of ports and ter
minals, will create new sources of
trade and income in the territory
traversed by it.
In the event that the legislature
does not sanction the use of the
Morris Canal funds, Mayor Donnelly
will fall back on the alternative
propostion of seeking a state refer
endum on the question of the bond
issue for the right-of-way purchase.
He will urge upon the legislature
the importance of supporting the
project as a strictly business propo
sition, which will have a quickening
effect upon the commercial and in
dustrial life of the whole state.
POLICE TO CO-OPERATE

Chief Niels J. Tonnesen has an
nounced that his force will co-opor- '

SPECIAL LEGISLATION
IS NEEDED DUE TO
BIG FINANCE BURDEN
The finances of the city are such
that the proposed Hall avenu*
school cannot be built next year
unless special legislation is enacted
at Trenton permitting the city to
exceed its t>ot limit set by law for
school purposes.
This is the way matters stand, as
far as could be learned from a con
ference last night between the al
dermen and three members of the
Board of Education to discuss the,
new school proposition.
President John K. Sheehy, Mrs. !
Elizabeth Oliver and William Sellers
represented the school board. Each
in turn spoke to the aldermen, ex- ;
plaining existing crowded and un
healthy conditions prevalent in the \
schools and pointing out the need of,
action for a new school at once.
Mr. Sheehy said he had under- !
st<#od from the opinion of the city|
attorney that the funds for the erec- i
tion of a new school next year were
available and it was the intention of
tl "» school board members to prevail
upon the aldermen to take imme
diate action such as the advertising
for bids, receiving of bids and check
ing of bids so that no time should
be lost and wo»rk started in the
spring.
There are at the present time
1,000 children attending half-time
sessions in the city's public schools.
Mr. Sheehy said, and of this number
990,000 SPENT !
B¥ Il HEBE:
For Property for Elimination
of Grade Crossings In
This City
tt was learned today that consid
erable property has been purchased
by the railroad companies towards
the elimination of the grade cross
ings through this city, more than
$90,000 having been spent during
the past few weeks. Adrian Lyon,
attorney for the Lehigh Valley, ad
mitted today that at least this
amount of money had been spent,
but could give no record of the prop
erty purchased as the work of buy
ing up the various sites is done from
the New York office of the com
pany.
Andrew Wight, of the firm of
Wight. Whight & Golenbock, local
representative of the Central Rail- :
road of New Jersey, is In St. Louis
and it was impossible to learn from
his office as to the amount of prop
erty so far purchased by the Central
railroad toward the elimination of
the crossings.
From information forthcoming to
day. it is likely that soon after the
first of the year, activities towards
the elimination of the crossings will
be marked. I
TRENTON*, Dec. 30.—Walter A.
Neely of this city, a federal prohi
bition enforcement agent, and a
woman, as yet unidentified, died to
day in Mercer hospital here, a short
time after they had been found in
an automobile in a private ira rag".
The motor was runninc, and it is
presumed they were overcome by

Alderman McGuire asked th·
school board members what they hs<
clone with the offer of St. Mar>
church to us© part of their new j.a
rochial high school building. Preeî
dent Sheehy pointed out that if th·
offe rwas accepted it would furnis*
only temporary relief and the prou.
Jem of accommodating the city"
school children would not be soiree
No school building hae been erect
ed by the city since 1914, the alder
men were told. President Sheeh.
said that inasmuch as the publi
holds the board of education respon
sible for crowded school condition
and lack of sufficient room, th'
school board would like to have Ui
aldermen make a formal statemen
if the city cannot finance the ne\
school, thus showing that it is na
the fault of the school board if th
children can attend only part tim'
sessions or are in crowded rooms.
This suggestion of Mr. Sheehy d:·
not strike a responsive chord wli
the aldermen and nothing was sai
which would indicate that the coun
cil members would adopt any end
measure a* suggested by Mr. 8heeh>
Comptroller O. J. Morgenso© iw
questioned and h<* explained the eon
flicting school and bond laws. Th
city's debt limit is now €.85, he sal*
and as the law does not permit of
per cent., bein gexceeded it leavr
but fifteen points as a working ma».
gin which is not sufficiently largé t
include the cost of a new school.
Alderman-at-Large Gal vin asstr
ed the school board members th*
the council will consider the matte
of special legislation in order tha
the new school proposition might b
gone ahead with. There was ©em
talk of arranging a conference bi
tween the state school authorities
the state commissioner of municip»
accounts, the aldermen and schiv
board members in an effort to Φε
vise some means of financing th
new school. No official action wa I
taken on this suggestion, however, ι
