More About Jersey City Mayor Frank Hague

New York City is seen beneath a big petroleum cracking cylinder lying on a railroad siding along the Jersey City waterfront. At right is the Statue of Liberty. Red Russia, centre of all that Mayor Hague so loudly hates, is the cylinder's destination. An important shipping centre, Jersey City has nine miles of waterfront, is a terminus for eight railroads.
