If you go to East Orange tomorrow
don't try to buy a cigar, for that city
will lie under the sway of the new
Sunday blue law.
"Don’t think of a drink and don't
write letters for you can’t buy a stamp;
don't think of ice-cream, for you can't
get it; don't attempt to buy your best
girl candy or flowers, for the places
will be Under the watchful eye of the
police.
To sum it all up don't do anything—
get out of town.
If you are real sick the druggist may
sell you medicine—but it will be safer
to be well. You can get a Sunday
paper, hut you can't buy a magazine
or a package of chewing gum. The
milkman can deliver his milk and the
iceman can leave ice. but “you can't
get shaved, .and yet the trolley cars
will run through the city—the one
chance to escape—and East Orange, it
is expected, will be nearly akin to
Goldsmith’s "Deserted Village."
Moreover, this new blue law is not a
dead one, full preparations have been
made by the police to enforce it, and
ten men in blue will ride around the
city on bicycles in the rear of ice cream
wagons to make arrests if necessary.
They have been instructed to make
everything as blue as possible.
To beat the law will cost an offender
$25 for every violation, if found guilty.
Should you be arrested carry $25, not
in pennies, and after being marked
down on the blotter, the police ser
geant on duty will accept this amount
as bail

Westinghouse Man Asked to
Substantiate Assertions
He Made.
COUNCILMEN SAY THEY
ARE UNDER DARK CLOUD
Allegations Concerned Specifica*
tions for Bids for Water
Machinery.
The allegations made at a recent
meeting of the East Orange City Coun
cil by Louis Johnson, a representative
of the Westinghouse Electric Manufac
turing Company, regarding the chang
ing about of specifications for an en
gine and generators to be placed at
the municipal water works of the city
In White Oak Ridge, are now consid
ered by the officials to be a dark
cloud cast on every member of the
Council. Last night a meeting of the
water committee was held and it was
finally decided to force Mr. Johnson to
show his hand further and back up the
assertions he made. Hints of the mat
ter going to court were also made after
the meeting.
Considerable interest was attached to
the meeting and it was attended, be
sides members of the committee, by
Mayor William Cardwell, President Ed
ward 8. Pierson, of the Council, and
Councilman Brown, a former chairman
of the committee. The session con
tinued for a long period and the situa
tion was discussed in detail, and it was
deemed best by all the officials to have
the matter brought to a quick issue by
making an effort to compel Mr. John
son to present his charges. The affair
will be further aired at the meeting >,f
the Council Monday night.
The allegations of the representative,
according to Chairman Saxelby, of the
committee, were to the effect that the
original specifications for materials had
been changed after the Westinghouse
bid had been received by a member ol
the water committee. Mr. Saxflby said
last night that he had drawn the speci
fications.

SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD
BO! MAKES 41ST
BOWASPRISONER
John Moore, of Orange, This
Time Is Charged with Steal*
ing Stones from a Yard.
HAD GRUDGE AGAINST
NUGENT, THE COMPLAINANT
Brother John, Also a Defendant,
Gets Tired of Waiting in
Xourt, So Goes Home.
John Moore, of 67 Christopher street,
Orange, 16 years old, who holds the
world's championship for the number of
times he has been haled into the police
court, was at his accustomed place to
day when court opened. This time the
charge against John's fair name (it be
ing his forty-first appearance in court)
was "stealing stones from the yard of
one Michael Nugent, of 101 Christopher
street. Orange."
John and Michael, it appeared, have
long cherished hard feelings against
each other. Hast summer, John, hav
ing nothing else to do, secured a large
hollow iron ball, weighing some
twenty pounds, and amused himself
by rolling it up and down the sidewalk
in front of Michael’s house. The noise
was deafening, hut Michael endured it
In silence. Today he told the court all
about it, bit with frequent objections
from John, who, from long familiarity
with the court, has picked up a smat
tering of law.
"Didn’t you have the nerve to tell
the Judge about this a year ago?” he
queried, much to Michael’s discomfort,
as a laugh went up.
Richard Moore, John’s brother, was
included in the charge, but when only
John responded to the call and Rich
ard was not to be found, John testi
fied that Richard had "Just got tired
of waiting and gone home.” He will
be sent for and the case will be heard
Monday.
Michael Nugent, who made the com
plaint, declared that John batted a
baseball Into his yard as a pretext for
jumping over the fence. Then, ac
cording to Nugent, John lay In wait
with his baseball bat. in the mean
time tearing up paving and othar
stones in Nugent’s yard.

with a fanfare of trombones in the

taken up by the organ and finally by
the t'.ori.sters and congregation as a
hymn. The K.vrie and Gloria, compris
ing eleven numbers, followed, critical
admiration being attracted by the man
ner In which the difficult and inspiring
music was sung.
