In an effort to make his 2,000-acrpark look like a fairyland for his bride during their honeymoon, James B. Duke pumped the Raritan river dry at Somerville, N. J., and stopped tne operation of the Raritan woolen mills, the largest industry there, which depend on the stream for water supply. Duke has on his estate artificial lakes covering several hundred acres, besides Innumerable fountains and waterfalls. All of these are supplied with water from the Raritan river by means of a great pumping plant with a capacity of many millions of gallons a day, which recently was Installed on the river hank above the woolen mills. In lionor of the bride In order that the fountains be made to shoot their sprays high, the lakes were filled to overflowing and cascades dashed with unusual volume over the rocks and the pumps were kept pumping night and day to kyp up the display, but all the while the Raritan river, which Is the second greatest watershed in New Jersey, kept dwindling until only a tiny stream found Its way through Its greit bed. The Intake of the Raritan woolen mills was left dry, and there scarcely was enough water in the wells to supply the big boilers of the mill. The Raritan woolen mills are owned by the Einstein estate and employ more than 1,000 operatives. While the managers of the mills were Inclined to do all they could to honor Duke's bride, they suddenly were confronted by a business proposition which led them to summon Manager Smith, of e the Duke estate, to look over the situ ation. Mr. and Mrs. Duke had just left the estate for a three weeks auto tour, and the manager decided there was no need to prolong the display and agreed to stop the drain from the river anu give the mills a fair share of the water, so the Duke pumping plant was closed down and the river will be allowed its normal flow for several days.
