Extra Trolleys Ready to Bring
Throngs to Hear “Billy"
*■': Anticipating that great numbers ot
™ Newark residents will go to Paterson
1 during the time that Billy Sunday,
[ | the baseball revival let, conducts his
■ campaign Ihere, officials of the Public
Service Corporation, of this city, are
t | planning to put on extra cars to ac
Lj commodate the throngs,
hf The Paterson campaign is due to
ta open on Sunday, March -8, but may

y bided the revivalist, who is now at
Pi Jja home in Winona Lake, Ind., de
V ifded he needs a week longer in which
Ip recuperate from the strain of the
Jj Philadelphia campaign, concluded last
. Sunday.
#3 It was stated at the office of the
>: Public Service Corporation today that
, l^jbins for putting on special cars had
, ueen considered, but that nothing detl
' iflte will be done until the date for the
R* opening of tile meetings is detinitely
'decided upon.
it is probable that the present line
! Ql Newark to Paterson cars, which
1 BOW run to Main street and Broad
5 Wav, Paterson, will be run through
i Broadway to the Tabernacle, at
, ($raham street. The traction officials
i! will also put on extra cars. If neces
e sary, it was announced today, so
' that Newarkers and persons living
c between Paterson and Newark may
J have an opportunity of attending the
: ijieetings without being inconveil
] iirlnc“d because of inadequate street
car service.
< That this extra service may be
1 needed is already indicated by the
5 great interest taken in the cam
’ paign by cities outside of Paterson.
1 Many hundreds of persons are ex
1 peeted to attend from Clifton and
* Passaic, alone, and in Hackensack,
! Little Falls and other North Jersey
: towns interest in the coming revival
p campaign is intense.
! Several enterprising automobile
| concerns are also planning to put on
: an auto bus service, similar to that
! now conducted between Paterson and
! Montclair and Paterson and <»reen
r wood Lake, and expect to reap a
bountiful harvest in fares.
(Continued from First PftfM
phia, Mr. Sunday frequently made
veiled allusions to his possible death
by remarking what he would do if
he lived through the Philadelphia
Persons here who know Billy Sun
day best realize the heavy drains he
Tbnde on his physical being while in
il'ulladelphia, it is believed entirely
iikely that he may require a full two
vteeks of rest before beginning an
other rough and tumble fight with
the cohorts of Mephistopheles.
_ Mr. Emett, when seen regarding
li possible postponement of the cam
naign here, could not affirm nor deny
the story that Mr. Sunday would
res; for two weeks. "No word has
come here,” said Mr. Emett, "the
last message that I received from
Mr. Sunday being that he would
come here March 27, to begin his ser
vices the day following.
"Not knowing the physical condi
tion Mr. Sunday is in, T cannot pre
dict whether or not the evangelist
.some day this week might decide to
take a two weeks' vacation instead
of one."
"Booze" Talk for Aldermen.
; While in a general way Paterson's
Aldermen are regarded as a pretty
good set of men, the eleven city
withers will be accorded a special in
vitation to attend a service at the
tabernacle and given good seats, so
that they may hear the revivalist at
close range. On the occasion of their
visit. the baseball preacher will
preach his favorite sermon on
i "Booze." Religiously inclined friends
of the aldermen are hoping that
jfome of the unregenerate ones will
“hit the trail."
It is hardly believed that Mr. Sun
day will have time to address a
Special meeting of the members of
the Board of Aldermen. However,
Alderman Jacob Patmos, of the First
tjtard, intends to have his resolution
to extend such an invitation to the
revivalist sprung at the earliest pos
sible moment. Some of the aldermen
are not in favor of having Mr. Sun
day deliver one of his sermons in
the council chamber, so the fate of
the resolution will be watched with
' Persons intimately connected with
the Sunday campaign agree that the
friendly sprit In which Alderman
! Patmos has acted indicates the good
faith in which tin- 3ldormen are at
tempting to act and administer the
liquor affairs of the city.
"Billy" Sunday is the one great,
.topic of conversation in Paterson to
day. Not only is his work referred
to in the churches and among lead
ers of the campaign and other relig
ious workers, but in hotels, restau
rants, saloons and everywhere that
men and women gather the work of
the evangelist is discussed and opin
ions expressed regarding the perma
nency of the religious work ho ac
“C»et Km4y for Hilly.
‘‘Get ready for Billy Sunday” was
the placard, done in red ink, which
■was recently placed in one of the
(principal saloons here, and the
crowd on the other side of the bar
was left to guess whether the sign
meant to get a club for the revival
ist or for the devil.
Ushers enough to til! an ordinary
church filed into the tabernacle last
night to get their instructions rela
tive to the administration of "first
tiid to stricken souls,” and incidental
ly to practice taking up a collection.
There were probably 500 men pres
ent. who received their cues for the
flrst night’s work of the meetings.
» is believed that, after the first few
meetings the ushers will naturally
round Into shape, as they have all
been picked for their earnestness in
church work.

for the home treatment of disease
were wonderfully dependable. True,
they knew nothing of drugs, but owed
their success to the roots, herbs and
Jiarks of the field. It is interesting
to note that Lydia E. Pinkham’s Veg

was originally prepared for home use
from one of these recipes. Its fame

Authorizes the Expenditure of
$300,000 for Children's Tu
berculosis Pavilion.
1 Plans for the erection of tne pro
posed tuberculosis pavilion for chil
dren at Soho will be prepared in the
verjr near future, it is said. Tho last
obstacle in the way of going ahead
with the project—the lack of power to
! spend the money—has been removed
by the signing by Governor Fielder
yesterday of Assemblyman Gilbert's
bill, No. 375, authorizing boards of
| freeholders to issue bonds to the
' amount of $300,000, more than already
I authorized in the contagious disease
hospital act.
| Mr. Gilbert Is a former director of
| the Board of Freeholders. In a state
ment accompanying the bill he ex
plains its purpose and the situation
, in Essex county in regard to the tight
against the white plague. There is no
I place in the county at present, ho
says, for the care and treatment of a
| child under fourteen years of age suf
| t'ering from other than the earliest
stages of pulmonary tuberculosis.
Nor is there any place, Mr. Gil
bert asserts, where adult residents of
Essex county, outside of a limited
number in Newark, afflicted with
moderately advanced tuberculosis,
may secure care and treatment.
They must walk the streets, spread
ing the disease, he says, until their
case progresses sufficiently to be
called advanced. The present hos
pital at Soho, which was built prin
cipally as an experiment, the assem
blyman says, has proven a success,
and is now overcrowded.
The money authorized to be spent
by .Mr. Gilbert’s bill will not all
be appropriated to the children's
division, but will be available to en
large and extend the present Soho
hospital for adults. Some provision
will be made to care for those suffer
ing from the disease in its early
stages as well as those in the ad- i
vanced stages.

Waterway League Wants Canal
Continued from Manasquan
to Shrewsbury River.
At a meeting of the Waterway
League of New Jersey, held In Achtel
Stetter's last night, It was deter
mined to devote all of the energies
of the association to the project of
an extension of the Intercoastal canal
from Its present northern end at
Manasquan to the Shrewsbury river.
It was declared that such an exten
sion would be of Incalculable benefit
to the city of Newark and the sur
rounding communities.
The proposed extension would cover
a distance of nine miles and make
the canal 150 miles long, covering the
entire New Jersey coast from Capo
May to the Shrewsbury river. A bill
providing for the expenses of a pre
liminary survey has been introduced
ill the State Legislature by Senator
Henry E. Ackerson, Jr., of Mon
mouth. It is not expected that this
bill will go through at this session,
as the extension will cost several
million dollars if begun.
The Waterway League of New Jer
sey, which Is behind the present
scheme, i3 responsible, in part, for
the intercoastal canal as It is to
day, and the league has, for years,
tried its hardest to obtain its com
pletion to the waters at Sandy Hook.
Such an extension would serve New
York, Staten Island and all of the
cities along the Passaic.
William S. Rauch, of this city, is
president of the league, and others
who are active in the movement are
Hewitt C. Pell and Ferdinand R.
Moeller, of this city; Benjamin P.
Morris and Charles L. Edwards, of
Long Branch; Charles J. Wadsworth,
of East Orange, and others.

ference board of examiners, and are

diction over all of New Jersey north
of the Raritan river, from Perth Am
boy to Lambertvllle, and also over
adjoining parts of New York and
Important Charges Looked For,
Important changes of pastors In
the conference are expected.
An increase in the pensions for re
tired clergymen and the widows and
orphans of clergymen, Is another
change that is scheduled to be put
through the conference. Many of the
pastors who are members of the con
ference have expressed the opinion
that the present pension of $7 a year
for each year of service and widows’
pensions at half that rate are too
inadequate. It is proposed to place
the minimum pension at $10 a year
for each year of service and $5 an
nually for clergymen’s widows.
If the proposed increase is adoptel,
a clergyman who has served the con
ference for twenty years will be en
titled to a pension of $200 a year. It
is planned to limit the benefit fol
widows at $5 a year.
It was expefcted that "Billy” Sun
day, the baseball player evangelist,
would take a leading part in the plans
for enlarging evangelistic work by
one of his stirring lectures. Rev,
James H. MacDonald, pastor of St.
Luke’s Church, today declared that
he did not believe "Billy" would visit
the conference. The former declared
that an Invitation had been extended
to the evangelist and word was re
ceived that present engagements
made it Impossible for Mr. Sunday to
give a definite answer before next
Saturday or Sunday. In the event
that "Billy” Sunday does decide to
accept the invitation, it is planned to
rent the First Regiment Armory fot
the occasion of the evangelist’s ad
Bishop Henderson will assume a
leading part in the discussion of en
larging upon evangelistic work In this
section of the country. A program for
accentuating social service will also
be presented. This program will In
clude the organization of numeroue
young people's church clubs and ar
rangements for holding social affairs
under proper supervision. Another
important part of this work planned
will be the establishment of a corps
of volunteer workers in each church.
These volunteers will visit the homes
and the sick and assist the poor.
It Is estimated that more than fifty
of the 250 clergymen in the conference
will be transferred during the session.
As usual, there is considerable spec
ulation as to who will be affected by
these changes. The most important
appointment to be made at this ses
sion is that of a successor to Rev.
Dr. George W. Smith, superintendent
of the Jersey City district. Having
served the maximum term of six
years, Dr. Smith is not eligible to suc
ceed himself as superintendent. It
is understood that he will return to
pastoral work, and in all likelihood
will assume the charge to be vacated
by his successor.
According to unofficial reports re
ceived from the four district superin
tendents of the conference, one of the
features of the session will he the an
nouncement of a large increase in the
number of conversions for the past
year. It is reported that in half the
churches of the Newark district about
The Regional Bank’s New
Measure Will Help Business
Men in Many Ways.
Better credits, rather than an exten
sion of credit, is the much-to-be
deslred effect which the Federal re

new regional banks will exercise a
useful function In assisting member
banks to improve the character of
their loans.
The most useful function in matters
pertaining to health Is the digestive

receive our dally help in renewing the

Julius Vogeler to Give
lip Jewelry to Trustee
Referee Edwin G. Adams, in Bank
ruptcy Court, today signed an order
compelling Julius O. Vogeler, jr., of
4'J Renner avenue, to turn over cer
tain jewelry to the trustee of the
defunct Kingston & Burnett concern.
Vogeler is to be reimbursed to the
extent of $57.70, the amount which
he paid to redeem the jewelry at a
At the hearing today it developed
that Vogeler had loaned various
sums to Ea Rue Kingston, a partner
of the bankrupt seafood concern lo
cated at 75 Mulberry street. A vol
untary petition was tiled by the tirm

ston delivered the pawn tickets to
Vogeler for $15.
Vogeler appeared as his own coun
sel. He said the facts presented by
the trustee were correct and he did
! not wish to offer any evidence in his
own behalf.
"I have no objection to turning
over this jewelry to the trustee,” said
Vogeler, "provided I get what is
coming to me. There is due me
$117.50, including money loaned to
Kingston and the amount paid to
the pawnbroker.”
Referee Adams explained that as

Pitt Off Old Age
Some old folks are bent and shaky.
Others are straight and strong. So It
can't be mere “oldness" that works
such havoc. No—It is too often uric
acid that weakens older folks. Fight
off this life-sapping uric acid poison.
Help the kidneys take it from the
i blood. To aid them in this struggle,
live carefully, and stimulate their ac
tion with the old reliable remedy,
Doan’s Kidney Pills.
A Newark Case:
Mrs. Pauline Paulet, 3110 Elm street,
Newark, sayH: “1 had been ailing for
over a year and was told that my kid
neys were In bad shape. I suffered con
stantly from backache and hot and cold
flashes. A friend advised me to take
Doan's Kidney Pills and I did. All the
ailments have been greatly relle+ed and
I feel much better In every way. I will
ingly recommend Doan's Kidney Pills to
my neighbors."
