Line Street


LINE STREET was named because it followed the finally settled line of division between the Cooper and Kaighn properties. It was originally laid out as a twenty foot alley, but in 1848 was made a street fifty foot wide. In 1848, when the city charter was amended by the State legislature, Line Street became the boundary between the Middle and South wards, Arch and Federal Streets serving as the boundary between the Middle and North Wards. Line Street is not to be confused with Liney Ditch, also known as Little Newton Creek and Kaighn’s Run, which served as the southern boundary of the South Ward. In time, under the encroachments of settlers and the march of industrial progress, the stream began to fill up and became merely a ditch, to which, by common consent, the name Line Ditch was given, as it also served to divide the lands of the Kaighn and Mickle families. 

Do you have a Line Street memory or picture. Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.

Another Shapiro Appeal

To the Editor
Sir-Would suggest that in his call for a special session of the New Jersey Legislature. Governor A. Harry Moore include as one of his subjects that of a reward for Jack Shapiro, who was solely responsible for the collection of 14 millions of dollars from the late Dr. Dorrance estate.

Such legislation enacted would without a doubt meet with the hearty approval and satisfaction of the people of New Jersey.

Now is the proper time while the Legislature is in session to enact such legislation. Let us hope the governor heeds the advice and includes a reward for Jack Shapiro by the State of New Jersey as one of the subjects in, his call for a special session.

Camden Man Wins Delay in Deportation
Stanley Granted Writ by Judge Avis
After Removal to Ellis Island

Richard Stanley, 5, of 768 Line Street, went to bed in the best of spirits last night. For his mother, Gertrude, 39, had promised him "Daddy will be back tomorrow." 

Meantime a last minute effort was being made to prevent the deportation of his father Richard, Sr., 40. The elder Stanley is being held by immigration authorities at Ellis Island. He is due to be deported to Scotland on the S. S. Cameronia at 5 p.m. today.

If the ship sails Mrs. Stanley says both she and her child will be destitute. She has appealed that he might remain in Camden and support his family.

Immigration Commissioner James L. Hughes, Gloucester, said Stanley was delivered to Ellis Island immigration depot at noon yesterday and a writ of habeas corpus issued by Federal Judge John Boyd Avis yesterday afternoon was served on him later in the day by Frank M. Lario, counsel for Stanley.

DIVORCEE RAPPED, ALIMONY INCREASED
Court Scores Woman for Using Name of Boarder at Election

Although she was scored in Chancery Court for assuming the name of a man to whom she is not married, Mrs. Eldora G. Wood, of 830 Line Street, yesterday won an increase in a maintenance order for her two children.

Her petition was filed against her former husband, Abraham L. Wood, whom she divorced April 9, 1931. He was to have paid alimony of $20 a week, but this was later reduced to $4. Her appearance' before William J. Kraft, advisory master in chancery, was on a plea for an increase to $6.

Wood opposed the petition, and set forth that his wife has a boarder named James L. Gardiner. He alleged that on August 8, 1932, she registered to vote in Camden under the name of Eldora G. Gardiner and signed a sworn statement that the change in her name was due to marriage. She was also introduced several times as Mrs. Gardiner, according to Wood.  The woman went on the witness stand yesterday and denied that she had married Gardiner.           

"Why did you take his name?" asked the court.;

"Gardiner has helped me a lot," she replied.

"I don't think that that is the place for those children," retorted Kraft. "However, I’ll increase the maintenance to $6, but I want it understood it is for the children.”

Camden residents walk in fight to take back city

By ALAN GUENTHER
Courier-Post Staff

CAMDEN

Two dozen Camden residents recently took a nighttime walk on the wild side, past rows of abandoned homes, through neighborhoods so infested with crime and drugs that the dark streets are illuminated at night only by flashes of gunfire.

"We hear gunshots. We hear a lot of hollering and screaming. We hear people all night long -- drug addicts, drug dealers -- walking up and down the street," said Lisa Amegatcher, 34, who is trying to provide a safe home for eight adopted children in the Cooper Plaza section of the city.

Since Nov. 3, seven people have been found dead in Camden. Five were shot and killed. One was strangled. Another was stabbed.

"That's too much. Way too much," said Arturo Venegas, Camden's new top law enforcement official. "We're going to stop it."

That's why at 4 p.m. today , Venegas said, he is launching a drive he's calling "Call for Peace, Call to Action." At today's press conference, he said, he will challenge every church, every community group, every school organization to join police and walk through their neighborhoods together.

"This is about neighbors caring about neighbors," said Venegas as he walked along Berkley, Pine and Line streets with residents Friday night.

"We're going to take it street by street, block by block. . . . We're going to keep at it until we take our city back," Venegas said.

Friday night's walk covered about six city blocks. In that small area, residents pointed out three "hit houses" to police. Hit houses are abandoned buildings where addicts come to cook their heroin in spoons held over candles. They suck up the liquid with a syringe and inject a dose, or "hit," into their veins.

Three people were found in the hit houses Friday night, police Capt. Harry Leon said. Jennifer M. Lilly, 21, of National Park, Kareem Gardner, 29, of Williamstown, and Van Simmons, 39, of Camden, were all issued a summons for defiant trespass, Leon said.

Gardner denied any wrongdoing, saying he had visited a girl in the neighborhood and was trying to find his way back to the Hi-Speedline station when police found him. Simmons declined comment.

Lilly began to cry as police questioned her outside the squalid abandoned home at 772 Line St. Old sofas, a rug smelling of cat urine, burning candles and empty heroin packets littered the home, said Patrolman Stephen Gracia. He said he found Lilly sitting on a bed upstairs, surrounded by burning candles.

"I was just waiting for somebody," Lilly said. "A guy, "Twin,' stays here. I was just seeing him, I guess. I was just waiting for him to come back."

Tears gathered in the corners of her eyes as Lilly said she had been living on the street -- "on and off" -- for about a year. She is the mother of a little girl, Autumn, who will turn 4 in January and is living with Lilly's mother.

City resident Sheila Roberts, president of the Cooper Lanning Civic Association, confronted Lilly as she stood outside the house.

"You all destroy our neighborhood," said Roberts. "Don't come back here, because every time I see you here, I'm going to call the police. . . . You've got to find somewhere else to live. Get yourself some help."

As she led the tour, Roberts took police back to an area called the LEN triangle -- a small area bordered by Line, 8th and Newton streets.

Years ago, state Superior Court Judge Louis Hornstine helped the community raise $15,000 to install a basketball court, a playground and a garden.

But today, kids can't play in the area, Roberts said.

"The drug dealers came back here and took it over and tore it up," she said.

"I live right here," Roberts said, pointing to the back of her house on South 8th Street. Drug dealers try to elude police in high-speed car chases, roaring through the narrow alleyway at night.

"They drove a car right through the back of my house," Roberts said, about a year ago, ramming through a bathroom at 2 a.m. and spraying water everywhere.

"Kids can't come back here," she said. "It's not safe."

Venegas said police will be available to help groups that want to do walks to take back their streets. Asked how he will find the manpower to get the job done, he said Friday night that he didn't know.

"I just came up with this this morning," he said. "We're working out the details."

The city police force currently does not have a police chief and is under state supervision called "supersession." Venegas was recently hired by the state as the "supersession executive" to lead the department.

State and county officials said that when Venegas was police chief in Sacramento, Calif., he was known for demanding results from his officers in a tough-talking, no-nonsense way. He also was well known for working closely with community groups and paying attention to their requests.

For more than a decade, studies have called for the police to be more involved in the community, to get out of their squad cars and interact with neighbors.

"We're not going to "try to do this,' " Venegas said. "We're going to get this done. . . . The future of the young people of our city is being stolen by the criminals who feel that they can do whatever the hell they want in our parts of the city. And we're not going to tolerate it."
