Municipalities Report Attitude
Today on Proposed Pur
chase by State.
Ispeclnl to the Etening Star.l
PATERSON, April 17.—To discuss
the proposed purchase of the East
Jersey Water Company's plant at
Little Falls and its subsidiary com
panies, representatives of the mu
nicipalities in the Passaic Valley dis
trict are in conference today in the
city hall here. In all nine cities and
towns in northern New Jersey are
directly interested.
Besides Paterson, the cities repre
sented are Newark, Elizabeth, Pas
saic, Montclair, Nutley, Glen Ridge,
J’otowa borough and Prospect Park
The plan is to have the plants of
the water companies taken over by
the State Potable Water Supply
Commission, which body has already
had two meetings with the represent
atives of the-cities and towns in the
Today’s conference was arranged
:■! a meeting of the Water Commis
sion and mayors, held April 3. Since
that time the various heads of the
municipalities interested have been
furnished with the full data in con
nection with the proposed purchase.
Whether or not the municipalities
agree to the proposed purchase, the
deal may. be put through by the
Water Commission. This was hinted
at by the commission in a written
statement by his chairman, George F.
Wright, of Paterson, when he said:
"The commission is authorized by
law, with the consent of the Govern
or, to take over these plants upon
i an agreement with the company,
whether the municipalities concerned
approve of such taking over or not.”
It is believed, the positions of all
the municipalities in this matter will
be made known today after the con
Paterson Owes More Than a
Million on Sewer Contract
PATERSON, April !'.—John S.
Gibson, secretary of the Passaic
Valley Sewerage Commission, notified
tile members of the finance board
yesterday afternoon in a communi
cation that the city was in arrears
six payments, amounting in the ag
gregate to $1,086,299.46. Since Jan
uary 1, 1913, the various installments
of the city's share of the trunk sewer
cost have become due, but have never
been paid. Mayor Fordyee received
the information and said that he
believed provision should be made to
issue bonds without further delay.
With the mayor’s knowledge of
finances he declared that this would
be an opportune time to issue the

Automobile Used by Yeggs Who
Blew Open Safe in
Postofflee Inspectors investigating
the dynamiting of the Hilton postof
flee safe yesterday declare that the
loot taken far exceeds the original ;
estimate. Chief Inspector Frank A. I
Butler and Deputy United States j
Marshal Louis G, Beckman today '
stated that the loot amounts to more
than $1,000.
Of this sum about $850 was in cash
and the balance in stamps. A por
tion of the money token is the prop
erty of Elmer U. Brggn, the postmas
ter, who conducts a grocery store in
connection with his federal position.
It was rumored this morning that a
pretty twenty-year-old Kiri figured in
the case. Tills, the postofflee inspec
tors state, is a myth. Ii is said tl at

getaway in a high-powered automo
bile. Several weeks ago a gang of
robbers dynamited postofflee safes in
the southern part of the State. Ac
cording to the government detectives
the work might have been done by
this same gang, but they think not.
They are led to believe that the
robbers who have been operating in
the southern portion of New York
State and through Pennsylvania are
the same ones who wrecked the Hil
ton safe yesterday. The detectives
ar>* still following the clue of the
mysterious old man who was seen
loitering about the postoffice for sev
eral days.
• Georgia Oranges
“Some > cars ago the old homestead
on which I live was not thought
worth paying taxes on.” observed
Archie E. Cru.m, of Georgia, at the
Raleigh. “Today it is worth $300 an
acre and is advancing ift value all the
time. This marvellous change has
been brought about by the planting
of orange groves. Nearly every acre
of the estate which one time we didn’t
think worth the taxes is planted in
orange trees, and in other sections of
the State great wealth is being ex
tracted from stumpage in the shape
of rosin. Not so long ago a company
with $ 1,000,000 capital was organized
to improve Georgia lands, and there
is any amount of capital going into
tin State. Land has advanced 500 per
cent, in value in the last few years.”—

Painting the Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower changes its dress
ewry live or six years at a cost of
from £2,800 to £3,200. The date is at
hand when fifty painters will find oc
cupation for three or four months in
covering the 180,000 square yards of
its surface with a new coat of paint.
The shade has yet to be decided upon.
Urges United Protest by |
Negroes Against Jim Crow Cars
NEW YORK. April 17— Dr. Booker
T. Washington, principal of the Tus
kegee Normal and Industrial Insti
tute, lias issued a call to the negro
people of the United States, asking
them to , set aside Sunday, June 7,
and Monday, June 8, as special days
on which to protest to railroads
against discrimination on account of
color in the matter of providing pas
senger accommodations.
He has asked that, the churches, se
cret societies, business leagues, wom
en's clubs and other agencies orga
nize and send on those days repre
sentatives to the officials of the va
rious lines that have provided poorer
accommodations l’or the negro race
than for whites. Negro ministers
throughout, the country have been
urged to give widespread notice in
their churches to the setting aside of
these days for the purpose named.

they continue io cost all that’s left.”
