Says Great Opportunityjjls Knocking. BOOSTINGSGHEME Proposed Salem Connections Ap peal to One of the Vineland Newspapers. That opportunity knocks again, l'airly hammers on Vineland's door, is once again made apparent by the development of some quiet work that lias been going on for some months looking toward a larger community interest in South Jersey. The various towns lying to the west of Vineland t have long hoped for better rail con nection than they now enjoy. The heavy tonnage going from the thriv ing farms and factories of that por tion of the state is subject to much inconvenience of routing, car short age and high tariff, while a comfort able day’s outing at any of the sea short resorts is almost out of the question except, in a limited sense, to a few points by automobile. That a good thing may often be deferred 'Lut never abandoned is indicated by the revival of the old proposition to provide a competing east and west line running through the general territory. A few months ago some of the more progressive and far sighted bu siness men of the different communi ties took the matter up and Engineer A. C.’ Seward went over the district, gathering information and preparing maps and other data with the object, of ascertaining if the situation would warrant a definite action at this time. The results have been so encourag ing that a definite movement is now under way. .... The present lines of communica tion with that section generally re ferred to as Salem County are re stricted to more or less roundabout roads that in some instances are slowly being improved; and it is V,largely due to these improvements that a new community interest is be ing awakened and the great possibil ities of fitst-class. intercommunica tion recognized. That mile after mile of the coun try eastward from Vineland is cap -- able of a very high state of develop inent and only awaits the encourage ment of facilities is very apparent. The Improvement Associations Busi ness Men’s Organizations and Cham bers of Commerce from Wilmington to Atlantic City have become directly interested and a call has been issued for an automobile run to Atlantic City on June 15- A dollar banquet will be given at The Breakers by the Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce. At this time South Jersey commun ity interests will be discussed and it is expected that the matter of a cross-state fast line will take definite shape. The greatly improved ferry con nections ‘between Wilmington and Pennsgrove have aroused interest in this proposition and among the other places which will send delegations are Woodstown, Sharptown, Elmer, Newfield and Millville. This affair will receive considerable advertising tnroughout the state and elsewhere and it is expected Vineland will see her opportunity and send a large delegation to represent her interests. —Vineland Journal. WEDGING ~ (SURPRISE At Hlkton, Md., on Monday, LeRoy Veale, of the Taxicab firm of Veale Bros., and Miss Beatrice B. Seeley, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Seel ey, of Overlook farm, were quietly married. The popular young couple had planned to slip away quietly to the Maryland town and be married, anil return home before anyone knew anything about it. When the happy -c-ipie reached home the news had preceded them being printed in a des patch to one of the Philadelphia eve ning paper. Happily Mr. and Mrs. t'oale acknowledge the truth and they are now being showered with con gratulations by their very many friends. Mr. and Mrs. Veale will for a time live at the home of Mrs. Veale’s parents. 100 YEARS OLD Vesterday at the County Institution for the Poor, Mrs.|Abigail A. Linncll, of \ ineland, died. She was 100 years old. Mrs. Tinnell came to the institu tion from Vineland. She was born in Massachusetts. The body was removed yesterday to Vineland for burial.

MANY WANT AUTOJJCENSES Examiner Anderson Shinn and his assistants put in a strenuous day at City Hall yesterday. It was a day of fine weather, and that brought auto mobiles and their drivers from all parts of the district to secure driver’s licenses. The examinations were begun at 9 o’clock and from that time until S o’clock the City Council chamber was thronged with the anxious applicants for the coveted certificate. Many were “turned down” but num bers passed the examination. The tests were severe and it was not an easy matter to slip through. There were a good many ladies who presented their permits and were giv en examinations, with like results, as had been handed out to the men— some passed and some did not. The applicants stood in long files and had to take their turn to register and get their examination papers, and thought the examiners worked hard, there were some who had to wait till another day or go to another meeting place to be examined. It was the biggest day for autoumo. bile licenses that has ever been here. Over 200 licenses were granted. BUILDING ROAD Work still goes on on the Broad St. hill: finer crushed rock and gravel is being put on and the steam roller pressing the surface in shape. When done it will be a fine roadway. NEW FUG POLE Today, Flag Day, the national colors are flying from a new twenty-foot flag pole on the top of the Bridgeton Na tional Bank building. It was erected yesterday afternoon by Grosseup & Sons workmen. E. C. STOKES ON JUSTICEJUGHES Former Governor Edward C. Stokes * who was two year ex-Justice Hughes’ , junior at Brown university, ot which John Hay, was a graduate, was among the first to express himself in regard to the action of the Chicago convention. He said: “The nomination of Mr. Hughes is one of the most marvelous incidents I cf onr political history. Unsought, i without apparent management or or ganization, it came as the dominant and instinctive call of the people for a m?R for the hour. It is an illus tration of the American capacity for self-government and a suggestion to ambitious seekers for official honors to a wait the call rather than to force their candidacies and bid for popular favor. “Justice Hughes’ response to the c-ali of the public was prompt and decisive. His acceptance of the nom ination is a keynote challenge and puts Democratic stewardship on the defensive. It is comprehensive, but concise; profound, yet clear; states manlike and American. His nomina tion w&c so spontaneous and so de void of political manipulation that it is in no sense partisan. It typifies the patriotic demand of a people for a leader to point out the pathway of the nation's destiny in an hour of portentous happenings. It is paral leled in the case of Lincoln, who was raised up in the crises of I860. “The next administration will face problems at home and abroad whose solution will make or unmake Amer ica's primary and influence for good among the nations of the world. The Republican party has now an oppor tunity to render great service to the country, and its leaders should sink personal ambitions and differences and hasmonize for the common good.’ Former Assemblyman John E. Gill, president of the Trenton chamber of commerce, representing the commer cial interests of the city, had the fol lowing to say: "Former Justice Hughes is a min wimm E.ny American could tVl proud to purport. His unsoiiritl n >o inv ti-io iu cne of the most ideal ccnhi th-f.s in American politics, turclv no Si Henman was ever more s’gua ly bo i ■"ed by any partv ‘ 'i l ls striking instance rt the office s-*i*Kltig the man is certain1 y r Fresh ing. The unprecedented popular ds. mand for Justice Hughes’ nomination plainly indicates to me a tidal wave of victory at tho election in Novem ber. .Mr. Hughes h ts for years been i national asset that will be indis pensable in these critical days of the American people." PLATFORJflREMOVEIi Workmen were engaged yesterday in tearing away the old wooden platform that has been in use at Tumbling Dam Park. The lumber has been in bad shape. It has been decided that there will be less likelihood of accident if the major part of the terminus is filled in with cinders and covered with_a coat ing of rich gravel. In front of the sta tion pavilion there will be a board ilooring and there will be planking in between the rails. omiaren ury FOR FLETCHER’S CASTORI4 FREE TRIAL PACKAGE If you want to eat, sleep and feel better, cut out this coupon write your name and address below and send for a free trial package of Iiooth Ovorton Laxative and Liver Tablets.

THE PRESS ON HUGHES Great Editors Tell of Can didate. of hIghrepute. Praise for the flan Who Now Becomes a Great Leader in National Affairs. Had the astute politicians who held the reins in the convention sought a man after their own hearts they nev er would have nominated Justice Hughes. His public record is well known and it is recognized that Charles E. Hughes Is a man that no other man or coterie of men can handle or dictate to in the smallest degree. He is his own master, guid ed by a sensitive conscience and a sound judgment. His mind earnestly seeks the truth and the right, and having found them, adheres to them inflexibly. It is because the people recognized these qualities in him that a demand for his nomination arose which this convention could not re sist and which this stern and repeat ed refusal to be a candidate could not discourage. * * * The convention did well and by so doing has placed the Republican par ty in an advantageous position for the campaign. No better nomination could have been made, and if the Republican party is wise enough to come together it can easily make Justice Hughes the next president of jibe United States — Philadelphia Press. Of all the candidates whose names were placed in nomination at the Re publican convention, Justice Hughes is undoubtedly the foeman most wor thy of Woodrow' Wilson’s steel. Hi's record is clean; his ability unques tioned.—Philadelphia Record. At this writing we do not know' whether Colonel Roosevelt intends to remain in the field against Mr. Hughes or not. It is difficult to con ceive an excuse for his candidacy, if a man of Mr. Hughes’ character and record is not acceptable to the Pro : h'ressive party we do not know where the paragon that it demands can be found—except, of course, in Oyster Bay. We think the Justice is an ideal man for the White House and there is no question that he was nominated in an honorable way by a convention composed of men lawful ly chosen. There i§ no charge of fraud this year. Nobody was robbed. The steam-roller was left in the gar age. Not even from the Progressive camp came a single word in criticism of tlie Coliseum conclave or its method of working. With Hughes as Republican candi date, standing on a platform differing little trom that of the Progressives, we say again Roosevelt could have no shadow of excuse for entering the field. The electorate would not ap prove such a course on his part. He could not possibly win, and the out come of his candidacy W'ould be the re-election of Wilson.—Newark Sun day Call. With the course of Justice Hughes yesterday in resigning from the su preme bench and placing himself en tirely at the disposal of his party and with the statement of his views on national questions read to the Re publican convention accepting the nomination, the country is introduced to Charles Evans Hughes, candidate for the presidency as the nominee of a great party. Mr. Hughes has shown himself a man of action. In an instant the reserved jurist becomes the active party leader. His telegram to the Republican convention may well arouse the enthusiasm of his droop ing party. He unreservedly accepts tho Republican platform and dedi cates his lile to the attainment of true Americanism and to the vindica tion of American rights. He denoun ce.^ the foreign policy of the present administraton as wean and vacillat ing and lashes its policy in Mexico as aimless and without regard to the protection of the lives of American citizens. Here speaks the militant Hughes. From his shoulders has slipped the supreme court robe, and the great battle for the control of the United States government is on.— I New York Herald. BOND LAW CHANGES Financial officers of counties and municipalities in New Jersey should he preparing to operate under the new Pierson bending law, if they have not already made preparations. The act will go into effect on July 1, after which data cities, counties and school districts will be prevented from getting th e hitherto valued premiums for their obligations, ac cording to their credit. They will get only the total sum authorized in the bonding ordinance or resolution. 1 his will be accomplished through bidders offering to take the number of bonds, at whatever premiums they choose to pay, which plus the prem ium, will make up the total amount of the face value of the bond issue for sale. In some cases, in past years, ! substantial sums have been obtained in premiums, which have been spent for purposes not strictly within the purpose for which the bond issue was intended. Another provision that should not be overlooked is the one limiting the time within which municipal bonds must mature. The life of road bonds, for instance, is limited to from five to twenty years, according the materials used in the construction or improvement of the roads. There is a limitation, also, on the total debt of a county or municipality that may tie created. But financial officers should study the new- act, which is chapter 252 of the Session Laws of lino.
