There are at least two strenuous op
ponents of the plan. George Ohl, who
owns a large machine factory along
the Passaic River, near the point
where tho Elwood avenue extension
would touch, and Frederick Fraentzel,
a lawyer. They were on the scent
when the committee arrived and made
it known that they would oppuse the j
project. Mr. Ohl contends that the
bridge should be built at Gully road,
three blocks south of Elwood avenue,
or at Grafton avenue, a block north.
The sentiment of the majority np
pegrs to be for the Elwood avenue site
nevertheless, and It is proposed that it
shall be an ornamental structure. It
will afford a convenient outlet Into
Hudson County and thence to New
York for the residents of Bloosifleld,!
Montclair and other parts of the coun- j
ty. A bridge at Elwood avenue would,
be about ninety feet above high water
and would touch the Hudson County!

arranged for the Misses Rena and
Helen Ege, whose double wedding was
to have taken place at their home, in
Hopewell, next week, came to a sudden
end when their mother, Mrs. Emma
Ege, a lifelong resident of this place,
died in the arms of one of the young
women while the festivities were at
their height.
Mrs. ligc was 62 years old and a
member of a family five generations
of which have been extensive landhold
ers in the vicinity of Hopewell. The
double wedding in the old Ege home
stead was to have been the social event
pf the year. Two wings of the house
had been set apart for the use of
visitors who were to come from a dis
tance for the wedding.

While Mrs. Ego and her daughters
were in the library last night writing
notes of acknowledgement to friends
who had sent presents from many parts
pf the State, they were interrupted by
the arrival of seventy-five young men

shower” surprise party. Each visitor
tarried a gift of a piece of household
linen. Their cheerful cries as they

Levy for Sewer Is Held to Be
The Citizens' Protesting Association
>f Vaitsburg Is going to protest tha
lewer levy for that section. The Pro
testing Association held a vigorous
meeting last night In Union Hall. South
Grange avenue, and declared that It
wouldn't pay toward a piece of work
that had already been declared the
■Ity’s burden by the courts In special
cases and then It put down the money
for a firm of lawyers. Hiker & Hiker,
to battle the assessment to the Su
preme Court of the United States.
The Vailsburg residents paid taxes on
the sewer before Vailsburg was an
nexed and then didn't protest that the
cHy-jshould take the load off and give
them back their money when Vailsburg
became a part of the big town. Those
ivho did protest as they paid the tax
now have a Judge's decision to force
the city to^ pay them back. But it is
pointed ouf that ‘it Is Just as unfair to
nslst upon keeping the tax from those
who did pay without protest, and the
new' lawsuit the protestors are about
to start is based upon the proposition
hat the city hiving annexed Vailsburg
Is responsible for all its debts owing at
the time. The executive committee of
the protestors is to hold a meeting to
morrow at Charles F. Zelgler's office, I

about 25 years old.
From the statements made by the
conductor, the men took seats Inside
the car, where they remained for 15
minutes. By that time the car had
left this place and was somewhere be
tween here and Klizabeth. Just over
the city line the young men went to
the rear platform, saying they wanted
to smoke.
Without warning one of the pair
drew a revolver and, pointing It at
Holland’s head, demanded that he hand
over what money he had in his pockets.
Holland reached for the bell rope to
signal to the motormun to stop the

Holland's head, demanded- he turn

Two Freighters fio Ashore in
Westerly Reaches of
L. I. Sound.
NEW YORK, Jan. 27.—Dense foe
that blanketed the harbor and adjacent
waters last night and this morning
tied up a big fldbt of transatlantic
liners and coasters down the hay and
outside the harbor entrance and was
the cause of the running uBhore of two
steamers in the extreme westerly
reaches of Long Island sound. The
stranded craft were the freighters Mo
hegan, New' York for Providence, and
the H. M. Whitney, a Metropolitan
liner plying between here and Boston
Both steamers grounded in the viclnit •
of Throggs Neck. Neither was believed
to be seriously Imperiled, and this be
lief was speedily justified in the cas- J
of the Mohegan, which was floated 1
practically undamaged before the fore
I.lnera Fog-Hound.
There were no reports or accidents
from down the bay, but for hours se\
eral shiploads of passengers were
obliged to wait for the fog to lift and
permit the liners to proceed to their
piers. The big turbiner Mauretania,
from Liverpool, which anchored off
I Ambrose channel shortly after 8 o’clock
last night, was one of the detained
craft, while the Prlnz Friedrich \Vll
helm, from Bremen, yesterday after
noon arrival off the iiglitshlp, was an
other. The Rhein, from Bremen, was
a third transatlantic boat to be de
layed, while half a dozen coasters
swelled a fleet which found Itself un
able to stir a propeller and was being
added to almost hourly by other In
coming craft.
ShorWy before 9 o'clock the observer"
at the Highlands saw some Indications
of lifting fog.
The tie-up of the fleet was broken
during the late forenoon, when the fog
had lifted sufficiently for the delay-1
