who in other places the advantage of living in when they are em- ployed here the Hail comments editorially The attempt of the people to induce those who work in that town to move there is but in accord with any movement designed and executed for the improvement and advancement of a community As perhaps two or three hundred people who work in live leroi this action on the part of the business people ia to some extent by the business people here as an effort to build up Monessen at the expense of Charleroi From a business standpoint leroi has no kick coming The ment serves to show where Charleroi ia lacking and emphasizes the necessity of action here to offset conditions which work to the benefit of sen The mere fact that two or three Charleroi people earn their living in Monessen shows that is lacking here to employ them That being the case it is up to leroi to try to provide employment for all its citizens so that none will be forced to the trouble and extra ex- pense of being obliged to seek em- ployment out of town Another commendable thing aen business people are doing is ing the case why people employed here are not moving to the town It is generally conceded that rents are too high and the Monessen people it U understood are trying to bring about a reduction Other civic movements are planned it is stated that will tend to make Monessen a still more desirable place of residence essen has a big advantage in the way of affording employment and if there are drawbacks as a place of residence nothing ia more natural that those interested should seek to remove them Monessen is doing nothing in seeking to induce the ple they employ to also make their homes there On the contrary the movement shows enterprise and spirit which are always essential elements in material progress Charleroi has the same opportunity to maintain her standing and prestige and if our people sit while tles cause will follow effect as able as night follows day PRESSING OUT UCES fry
