almost due south of Nells Island. TM3 is a group of four pieces
of marsh land, in the river, east of and opposite the point in
the village of Stratford where Main street joins with Elm street
By various steps a line is projected south and west from
NdIIs Island, a distance of some two miles, into the channel of
Hollister's pond. Within thest boundaries, very roughly a
square, averaging two miles on a side, lies the land, mostly salt
marsh, which would be the site of the proposed terminals and
equipment of the Port of Bridgeport
The territory to be taken is most of it familiar to everybody
who has visited the Lordship uplands. It is that low flat area
of salt marsh, partially drained, whMi the trolley crosses, be
fore entering Lordship.
A description of the aet as it Is viewed by its friends has
been furnished to The Times-Fanner as follows:
This Is a name which will be very1
much in evidence (from this tlm on.
If the hopea of itn sponsors are real-
In its conception. In its scope, in
Its (promise of a Sbfg development for
Bridgeport, it Is among tne most in
teresting things which have been
brought before tho public for a Jong
time. B&dfc of it all Is the support or
the different groups of men In every
walk of life who have made Bridge
port's recent development possible.
Here 'follows, then, the etory of the
Port of Bridgeport.
"TodEjr Senator George B. Clark of
the 23rd District Introduced Into the
Connecticut Senate a long measure
which provides for a. (building opera
tion toy a new municipal corporation
formed out of the City of Bridgeport
and the Hown of Stratford, to be
known as the 'Port of Bridgeport
whose purpose it is to construct a
giant terminal where the waters cf
UcfttrJEton'fl OreeW Join, the Srtrattford'
Meadows, so-caned. The tentative
plans for this terminal have been pre
pared by tttadon W. !!..!, one of the
most distinguished engineers in the
Tnlted States. Mr. Bates has had in.
charge at different times all the wa-
terwayo of BBlglum and Russia. He
organise!!! the Belgian Relief Commis
sion fbr the dtatrttnrtion of food at the
beginning- of the war. Hte is the In
ventor of the hydraulic dredge which
operates hy suction, and at the same
time digs out the bottom of water
ways and fills lni adjacent lands.
'Mr. Bates" conception of the ter
minal provides for the deepening of
the channel from the main harbor into
Johnson's Creefc, the preparation of
a great turning Ibaedn, the construc
tion of several iters of 1,600 feet In
fongth, which piers shall he 600 feet
wide, having slips between them of
400 feet In width. The average 9,500
ton cargo eteamer la aibout 460 feet
long, and three of them could readily
be toertiTetl along one edde of one pier.
In Ks eomplute development these
piers (would tafce care of approxi
mately 10 cargo carrying steamers of
adequate size for foreign trade. On
these piers railroad tracks will be built
unloading: cranes and machinery will
be erected, storage warehouses and
factory buildings will be reared. Rail
road connections wOl be Hwought down
from, the meadows and join wth the
New Haven roaJd) at some fxrint east
of et. Michael's -cemetery on tratfbrd
"RocognMnjf the fact that the air
plane has become a commercial ve
hicle, and that passengers and light
freights are now being carried by
plane, a landing field for air machines
will be provided, and it will be so
placed that a bay of water in front
of It will allow hydroplanes to land as
well. In recognition, also, ot the fact
that the motor truck la an, Integral
part of any modern toanaportation
system, a large parking: and repair
space for motor trucks will be pro
vided. A canal will -be dug across the
meadows to join with the Housatontrt
river. This will allow commerce
from up the Housatonlo river to reach
the termhral without crossing the bar
at the mouth of the river and going
around Ijordshlj) Point. The flow of
water through 13ie canal will also
keep the slips and turning basin and
channels of the terminal from filling
Tn tho view of those responsible
for this project, the development
which will oorae to Bridgeport and
StratfoiU will be nothing short of
marvellous. The docks of New Tork
are now so crowded and confused,
and ton stage, dockage and other
charges are so high the great car
goes of gram for foreign shipment
will be brought by train to the
Bridgeport terminal; coal, sand, ce
ment and other cargo materials des
tined for Bridgeport and the back
country will bo brought in by water
and then shipped here; ofl will be
brought fn from. Mexican and South
American ports; refineries, elevators
and manufacturing plants will locate
on adjacent lands; homes for work
men will bo erected and a humming
hiva-of industry wiD be the outgrowth
f thi- projected development.
Ehe legal sttoctuie of the port
contempfcrtas- the creation by the leg
islature of a municipal body which
shall comprise the entire territorial
limits -cC the City of Bridgeport and
Town of Strsitford as they now ar
or may hereafter exist. To raise the
necessary Hiitan for construction au
thority is asked from the legislature
for tha port of BHdgeport to Issue
bonds and sen them and employ the
proceeds for tha necessary work. Au
thority la also requested to lay a tax,
if it Shan he found necessary, on all
of the property and estates Included
within Batogeport and Btratford,
wlii. a tax, however, is limited to two
mills In any one year. . In all proba
bility tha naosssary nnds for the
couatraerhm of tha port will be
raised by the aale of the bontls. Such
porta are in existence all over the
TTntted Stateaand m foreign coutttrian.
For the most part they axe self-sus
taining. The rentals, docking
charges, leases, etc., are amply suffi-
cjient, not only to pay tha running
charges, but psy off tha bonds
they fall due.
"The aroposed act of legislature
provides that the affairs of the port
of Bridgeport shall be managed
a board of nine commissioners to be
known as the "Commissioners of the
Port of Bridgeport." At all times six
of the commissioners shall be resi
dents and voters of Bridgeport, and
three shall be residents and voters of
Stratford. The first three commis
sioners shall hold office until Dec. Jl,
1919, three until Dec 31, 1920, and
three until Dee. 81, 1921, and as their
terms expire new ones shall be chosen
for a term of three years each. The
port commissioners, like the present
Bridgeport Part r-ard, will elect Its
own members and fill vacancies. The
personnel of the commissioners as
named In the proposed act is as fol
lows: To hold office until December,
1919, Clifford B. Wilson, T. J. Pardy
of Brlageport, and Howard W. Curtis
of Stratford; until December, 1920,
Sumner Simpson, Samuel P. Senior
of Bridgeport and Burton C. Warner
of Stratford; until December, 1921.
George E. Crawford and Walter B.
Lashar of Bridgeport, and Harold C,
Lovell of Stratford.
"The proposed act provides that
the port commissioners strail receive
a salary of $500 each, which salary
is purely nominal for men of the
prominence and ability of those
named eg port commissioners. In
point of fact, their work is entirely
for the public good. The port is to be
owned by the public: it Is to be oper
ated for the benefit of the public; and
its sole purpose is to build up and de
velop Bridgeport and Stratford, and
make out of the two municipalities a
community of at least half a million
people where Industry shall thrive
and prosperity shall abound.
"i'hls development is the result of
the activities ot the Bridgeport Cham.
ber of Commerce. The Harbor De
velopment Committee was commis
stoned to make a thorough study of
the possibilities of Bridgeport har
bor, with special reference to engag
ing in ocean shipping and foreign
trade. As the committee's survey pro-
gressed the plan of the great terminal
gradually grew and took form, and
when Mr. Bates was sailed in as con
sulting engineer the thing crystallised
Into the present projoct The Cham
ber's Harbor Committee la made up
of George B. Crawford, Chairman;
Samuel P. Senior, T. B. Ford, Harold
H. Hamilton, William T. Hinks, Arch
ibald McNeil, Jr., and Simon Lake.
"New Haven and New London have
each put a hill into the legislature ask-ing-
the state to give them a million
dollars for the improvement and de
velopment of their harbors. Bridge
port proposes to develop Its own har
bor. The project, as it now stands, is
a broad one, evidencing the great con
fidence and courage of Its projectors,
and promises great things for the fu
ture, of the community. The passing
of the bill through the legislature, and
the ultimate conclusion of this plan,
with its many advantages, will be
watched with great interest,'

The American attitude, it Is
Glared, is very positive, and in case

colonies among them jv.ight be such
that It would probably affect the
whole future of the Peace Confer
ence. President Wilson, it is un

opinion that it would be scarcely
worth while for the United States to

session of the Supreme Council,
which will probably have historic sig

agency statement today, provides that
territories which the SMfQciently civ

wishes as to the form of their gov
ernment will be permitted to set up
such a government under the auspices
of the League of Nations, obtaining
either national Independence or living
under a protectorate of one or other
of the great powers. Arabia and
Mesopotamia are considered to te ex
amples of this class.
In the case of peoples insufficiently
developed for self-government the
statement explains, the league shall
choose the power most suitable to
gov e n under certain guarantees to
be hxed either by the Peace Confer
ence or the league. Provisionally the
African and the Far Eastern colonies
shall be left as they are now, in con
trol of the powers now occupying

available for the occupation of thlB
Turkish area.
The Peace Conference ao far has
had two replies to its invitation ia
the various Russian government for
a conference at the fPrlncea Islands.
In none of these the government of
North IPjussia, formally refuses to meet
with the Botehevi-ki. The Omsk gov

No Medicine- Chest
Its Family Laxative
From the baby to the grandparents a good laxative is the
necessary medicine in the little ills. It wards off serious
sickness and &aves doctor's bills. Many a cold has been pre
vented from running into grippe and pneumonia by its timely
Many a racking headache has been quickly dispelled by it
And it is & laxative rather than a drastic cathartic or purgative
that should be in every family medicine-chest, for a laxative
can be used at all ages.
Thousands of good American families have for more than
a quarter century used a combination of simple laxative herbs
with pepsin known to druggists as Dr. Caldwell's Syrup
Pepsin. It is a laxative-tonic that acts on the bowels and
stomach. Infants take it with perfect safety, and it is equally
effective for grownups.
Grandparents are now seeing their children give it to their
babies. It is excellent for all the family in constipation no
matter how chronic, indigestion, wind colic, biliousness,
headaches, dyspepsia and similar ills.
The druggist will refund your money if it fails
to do as promised.
