Proposed Salem Connections Ap

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
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

The greatly improved ferry con

places which will send delegations
are Woodstown, Sharptown, Elmer,

will receive considerable advertising

her opportunity and send a large
delegation to represent her interests.

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

There will be no further rehearsals
of the chorus during the summer
months. In the fall the Society will
again take up the work.
An effort wll be made to increase
the chorus from its present member
ship of 125 to 200 and with the inter
est taken in singing it is thought this
will be accomplished.
According to the report made by
the treasurer, the year just closing
has been a most successful one.
The organization in the fall will
begin its 37tli year.
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
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.
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.
Today, Flag Day, the national colors
are flying from a new twenty-foot flag
pole on the top of the Bridgeton Na

yesterday afternoon by Grosseup &

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
“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
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

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.

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
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.
Financial officers of counties and

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

! substantial sums have been obtained
in premiums, which have been spent
for purposes not strictly within the
purpose for which the bond issue was
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
