Message to Councils
Great Municipal Advance
Urged by Camden's Mayor
'DIG Improvements in Camden's
waterfront nro urged bv Mayor
Ellis In his fifth inaugural messngo
to Camden City Council today. A
$000,000 terminal nnd warehouse nt
tha Spruce street whatf is naked.
Mayor suggests a bridge over tho
Delaware vln Peltv'a lelnnrl fnr vn.
hicular traffic and n tunnel nt tho
ferries for passenger service. Urge
building of new wharves to provide
for commerce of the future.
Advocatos purchaso of evangelistic

rocommonds that Cooper Park Library

Recommendations for Immediate develop
ment of Camden's water front wero made
by Mayor Charles II. ytlls today In Ills
fifth Inaugural rllessace to Cnmden city
Council. He urged approval of tho plain
for a sre.it terminal and warehouse at the
elty-owned wharf at Spruce street
"Ernest and energetla prosecution of tho
opportunities for harbor development." ho
said, "means unprecedented progress for
Camden, and I strongly ndvocato approval
of the Spruce Rtreet terminal and ware
house plans, or some similar plan, as a
great bis step In tho right direction.
"So city Is rlehor than Camden In
natural water-front advantages or accessi
bility as a shipping center, both by rail and
water. The railroad faellltki nre highly
developed, but tho harbor needs havo been
neglected and tho time Is ripe for action.
'Tho proposition is a big ore nnd must
be handled as such ; It means much to tho
elty, and, while the estimated expenditure
Is large, the cost will bo Insignificant with
tho returns In after cars, not considering
tho prestlgo that Camden gains as a marl
time center. Puih this development to a
realUntlon and other developments of like
nature will follow as a matter of cotirso
and expediency."
The Mayor also advocates renewal of the
application for cutting through Fisher's
dike on tho north shore, asks Council to
acquire land on either sldo of tho stiect
ends now owned hy the city to be prepared
for tho commerce of the future, and wants
the city Immediately to extend Its wharves
to the new pier head lines.
Tlje Mayor recommends that the capacity
of the city-owned asphalt plant bo doubled
to meet tho demand for highway Improve
ments, urge3 Immediate improvement of
highways leading to the main roads and
suggests a bond issue for paving: 1-ast Cam
den streets
Directing attention to the fact that the
auxiliary water station diaws on wells In
dependent of tho Morris plant, the Maor
says tho new plant adds to the securltv
which tho city has long enjoyed for pure
supply of water IIIh Honor recommends
complete equipment of tho municipal hos
pital to bo prepated for any emergency,
aslta for funds to Increaio tho tiafllc and
mounted squads of the police department
and makes reference totlie splendid equip
ment of the fully motorized (Ire department.
Kmphaslzlng the Importance of a central
location for tho proposed bridge over the
Delaware the Mayor suggests that the tratlla
problem may bo met with a bridge over
Pettys Island for vehicular trafllc and tun
nel at the ferrleB for possenger service.
Discussing tho public educational facilities
the Mayor says that mone will bo needed
soon for more schools and suggests that on
completion of tho new high school the old
building he used for tho higher grades ot
the grammar schools and thus relieve the
existing congestion He advocates the pur
chase of the evangelistic tabernacle for a
convention hall, recommends that tho
Copper Park library which Eldredge H.
Johnson Is building as a gift to the city bo
largely used as a workmen's community
house or general technical reference library
and advocates tha establishing of a mam
moth playground on the Broadway meadow
tract so arranged that It could be flooded
and used as a skating center In the cold
Urging the further development of nil
the parks, tho Mayor wants the city to pur
chase ground adjacent to Battery B armory
for recreation purposes ; directs attention
to the fact that the city will be 100 years
old twelve years hence and suggests the
formation of a. permanent relief society
using as a nucleus the funds remaining In
the treasury of the committee which looked
after the families of the Camden soldiers
who saw service on the Mexican border,

American Conferees Expected to
Settle Matter of Troop
WASHINGTON, Jan. 1. Decision on the
stand to be taken by the American section
of tho American-Mexican Joint commission
will bo leached tomorrow when the com
missioners meet In the office of Secretary
of the Interior Lane, chairman ot the
American section
At present there appears to be no way
to continue tho deliberations of the com
mission unlets it Is agreed to take up and
dispose of tho question of the presence ot
American troops on Mexican soil before
other angles of tho situation are con
sidered. Despite the conciliatory tone of the Car
ranza objection to the Atlantic City pro
tocol. It Is doubtful If the American sec
tion of the commission will recede from the
attitude It has taken.
It was stated In Philadelphia two weeks
ago, when General Cairanza'a first objec
tion to the protocol was laid before the
American members, that under no circum
stances could nny modification of the
protocol be considered that it must stand
or rati as It was drawn up.
Tha main objection now raised by Gen
eral Carranza, first chief of the defacto
Government of Mexico, Is that It was the
Mexican understanding that the question
of the withdrawal of the Pershing column
was to have been discussed and concluded
before other matters were taken up.

Our little btother 1917, whlilcctless and
without a face crease, wants to hrow about
his new Job, and so he sits back today and
looks at us. lound-eyed, while we caper. Of
course, tomorrow but that's cruel.
In club, school, church and wherever
men foregather, receptions, some formal
and others without much shape, are belli
hold. Some of these gatherings are simply
for fun, while others have for their ob
jects the purpose of summing up visually
the progress made in 1910. "Written Into
the doings of every festival, however, are
the words "Progress and Prosperity."
The V. M. C A. is showing what it ha
dono In the past year. From 2 to 10 p. m.
there will be an informal reception to mem

The annual New Year's reception of the
Quaker City Motor Club began at 9 n. in.

In the chapel of Glrard College exercises

Virtually every country club around the

old hopeful bass Is audible from every

And as our nice little milk-fed brother

doubtless clapping his hands and shouting,
"Fine, great, elegant I" So It you see some
