ONLY TWO BIDS IN
Degnon Co. and Booth & Flynn Name Low Prices for Two Sections. _ Rids of only two firms were re ceived by the Passaic valley sewer commissioners yesterday for the work of constructing sections 2 and 3 of the big trunk sewer. The Degnon Construction Company, of New York, was the lowest bidder for the work on section 2, with a figure of *2,603,300. Booth & Flynn, of Pittsburgh, offered to do the same work for *3,060,500. This section extends from the out fall and distribution pipes in New York bay at Robbins Reef to a point underneath Jersey City, where it in tersects section 3 eighty feet below the sea level. Two methods have been suggested for the construction of section 3, known as the "high level" and the "low level” plans. The "low level” method is said to be the least ex pensive, and consists of building the tunnel 150 feet below the sea level, where it will strike sfift sandstone, which is easily penetrable. The other method suggested calls for constructing the tunnel at a mean level of eighty feet below tidewater, giving it a uniform scale with sec tion 2. Clay above bedrock will have to be tunneled. The "low level” plan is considered by the commissioners to be the most feasible. The Degnon Construction Company was the only firm to bid on the "low level” plan. They submitted a profTer of *1.852,700. while their figure for the "high level” plan was *2,656,900. Booth & Flynn submitted a figure of *2,875, 400, coming well under the Degnon firm's bid. The contracts will probably be awarded next Tuesday, following the usual practise of the commission. There is a chance, however, that the bids will be rejected, because so few were received.

Baptist Home Society Gets Gift of $5,000 _ The board of managers of the Bap- j tist Home Society of New Jersey at | a meeting yesterday announced the gift of J5.000 worth of bonds for the endowment fund of the organization from Dr. J. A. Coles, of New York j The meeting was held in the Home ! reception room and was followed by , a luncheon. Mrs. Joseph Rollinsoh presided. Disputing the right of the city to deduct any penalties for work on the new Miller Street School Addition, E. M. Waldron & Co. yesterday filed with the building committee of the oard of Education a claim for $2, 421.37, which they contend is due In damages. The city claims a penalty of $25 a day for fifty-three days, amounting to about $1,325. In order to bring the matter to a speedy settlement the entire, con troversy was referred to a special sub-committee which will report its findings at a special meeting on Thursday afternoon. The final pay mentof $15,000 Is being held up pend ing the adjustment of the difficulty. The entire trouble is due to the sinking of the foundation walls of the school building almost a year ago. This tied up the work of the contractors and later the committee passed a resolution granting the vari ous contractors an extension of three months on their specified time to finish the work. The Waldron work was finished fifty-three days after this term. Figured at the stipulated amount of $25 per day the amount to be deducted by the terms of the con tract total the $1,325 ampunt. Each of the Items was thoroughly discussed by the members, with the result that the bill, the liquidation amount and all other questions per taining to the contract were referred to a committee consisting of Com missioners Taylor and Belfatto, who will confer with Assistant Attorney Charles Myers and make a final re port next week. Owing to but one bid, and that for a high figure, being received for gym nasium apparatus for the Central Avenue and Newton Street schools, the commissioners decided to read vertise the contemplated purchase. Says Railroads Discriminate Against Newark Merchants That Newark Is being discrimi nated against by the railroads was the theme of an address delivered by Lucius W. Wilson, the well-known expert and former secretary of the Detroit Chamber of Commerce, to the members of the local Chamber of Commerce at the first regular month ly dinner last night. The speaker declared that the city was losing about $2,500,000 a year be cause of the rates given by the rail roads whioh makes It cheaper to send freight through to New York than to unload the goods in Newark. He further declared that the reason there had been no uprising on the part of the shippers was because the merchants were under the impression that the transpartation companies are now granting them great con cessions. when in reality they are not. Other speakers of the evening were Arthur Oliver, a well-known local newspaper man, and Hugh Lynch, formerly a local newspaper man and now secretary of the Perth Amboy Board of Trade.

Sept. 10.—With only 169 seats in the village school and pupils enough to fill 162 of them, resi dents of this place voted last night against putting up a larger building. The vote was the culmination of the summer’s war over whether or not the town would spend Its money for a new school or a municipal water system.

Ho threatened again today to keep his promise unless there Is another elec tion. School Commissioner Arthur Toma lin, stated last night that most of the citizens voted against the school improvements because they were “so stingy."

SAVE GIRL’S HEALTH OR LIFE OF DOG That Question Is Puzzling Res idents of Palm Street, Vailsburg. * This is not a demand for the life of a dog, nor is it intended to arouse or excite resentment in the breasts of members of the S. F. C. A./ It Is in the interest of a child. There is, however, a question to be determined, and that is whether a dog that had bitten a child, notwithstand ing the fact that the animal has passed the observation period of Incu bation required for the development of rabies, and had been given a certifi cate of health, s^to speak, should be allowed to be remain where the child might see it when doctor's declare that the sight of the dog that bit her, would in all probability so affect her nervous system as to throw the child into convulsions? Are the parents of the child to be compelled to move from their present habitation, near the home of the dog's owner, at considerable hardship, or is the dog to depart this life or that neighborhood? This is the story: W«s Bitten on Amim 7. On August 7, Mrs. John King, of 80 Palm street, Vallsburg, visited her sister, who was ill at her home in Val ley street. South Orange, leaving her 13-year.-old daughter, Marguerite, at home. About 6 o'clock In the evening she telephoned to her daughter, send ing the call to a saloon owned by James Seen, at 84 Palm street. Mr. Seen summoned the girl, -who came to the phone and was told by her mother to get her father to the telephone. Th girl put down the receiver and started from the place on a run. A black poodle dog, owned by Mr. Seen was In the plP.co at the time and see ing the girl running out of the door, the dog made a spring for her and bit her behind the right thigh, inflicting a severe wound. The girl summoned her father to the 'phone and after Mr. King had talked with his wife he took his daughter to the office of Dr. B. H. Voelbel, at 15 Salem street. Dv. Voelbel cauterized the wound and advised the girl to come to his office about three days later. During that time the girl grew very nervous, thinking that she would get hydrophobia from the bite. The Board of Health was notified and an inspector called at Mr. Seen's place and told the owner of the dog to chain It so that he could keep It un der observation for traces of rabies. The dog was kept chained until Au gust 19. when the inspector called again and told Seen that the animal was perfectly normal and that It would not have to be destroyed. Girl Taken to Hospital. The girl, according to Mrs. King, worried over the bite so much that she became subject to convulsions, and on the advice of Dr. Voelbel was sent to the City Hospital on August 15 for treatment. She did not take Pasteur treatment, however, but treatment for convulsions and ner vous trouble. It seems that a boy olaymate of the girl named Adrian Palmer. 9 years old, of 297 Sandford avenue, was bitten by a stray cat. Hydrophobia developed and the boy died. This fact preyed on the girl’s mind, and she constantly asked her mother If she would get the disease. Although her mother reassured her the girl’s nerves wont completely to pieces, resulting in her removal to the hospital. She was discharged from the hospital on Labor Day. The doctors at the hospital had told Mrs. King to keep the child away from the dog, as she was naturally of a nervous disposition and the thought coming into the child’s mind that she would again be bitten by the ani mal might cause a recurrence of the convulsions. In view of this fact, when the girl was discharged from the hospital Mrs. King took her to the home of her grandmother. Mrs. Thomas King, of 19 Second street, South Orange, where she has been ever since. According to the girl’s mother, the child's arm la partly par alyzed from the effects of the con vulsions. This defect, however, it is said, will disappear in time. Mrs. King states that she is on friendly terms with the Seen family, but nevertheless she thinks the ani mal should be put out of the way. The neighbors feel that there should be some one In authority to order the dog destroyed, and are sharply criti cal over the fact that the animal Is allowed to live as a menace to the health and probably the life of the child. Mr. Seen has a complacent way of viewing the situation. Ho appears to be a good-natured man and the people like him. He is very fond of the dog. however, and explains his reason for not destroying the animal, or sending It away, in this manner: ’’The health inspector was up here twice, told me the dog's condition was normal. “Any way," he added, "the dog never bit anyone before. It was its first offense and shouldn’t be killed.” Ask Guard Captain to Quit After Negro Shoots Him BEVERLY.
