Edgely citizens Are rather a progressive set of folks and they want their town illuminated at night they stated so in no Uncertain terms at a Nutting of the Edgely Community club last tuesday evening. Some time ago a committee was appointed to wait upon the East Pennsylvania Gas and electric company Here to ask that Street lights be furnished As the township supervisors signified their willingness to pay for the lighting and add it on the tax assessments of the citizens. The Light company after investigating the situation informed the committee that it would cwt $2500, to make the Extension of lines necessary and As they had not the Money to do the work it would im1 necessary to arrange a Way to finance the proposition before the improvement might he realized. The Community club is composed of some mighty Bright men. And they fail to see just where $2500 would have to be spent As they claim the improvement will Only necessitate the erection of six new poles and As wire is cheap at this time surely the balance of expenses will not mount to the prohibitive figures spoken of.

They will get out and work tooth and Nail fur Tho election of the candidates chosen. This is a Light of the majority and if the majority decrees that the present rulers of the destiny it the Borough shall continue to Rule Why so be it. They will continue without interruption in hindrance. Lot the above be taken by the powerful organisation digested and considered seriously it is an open avowal of an intention and an intention that will not by the Roadway Between the Points of the hollow Creek Bridge on the Northern end of the town to the Railroad Bridge on Otter Street on the Western extremity. These holes that were tabulated with great care Are not a Complete list of ruts and bumps but Are Only the distinct and Well defined Holts realized at this and ruts left by plumbers and other without a doubt the finest game of base in 11 Ever seen in Bristol will be played at the merchants Field on sunday afternoon when the Hilldale team w ill meet the fast by iries Burg aggregation.

They saw they conquered this application undoubtedly applies to the arrival Here on saturday last of the Veteran Boatmen who made the journey from Mauch chunk of 108 Miles on a scow comfortably fitted up for the trip of these old timers who journeyed Here to renew the memories of other Days. Upon their arrival opposite the fourth Ward Bank of the canal of the Lehigh Coal and navigation co., nearly every Home in that sect Ion displayed a Royal Welcome with its dec of at ions of a old passing along through the last three locks of their trip their staunch Craft a Mabel Quot with the faithful mule who furnished the Power of locomotion they arrived at the Basin where they were first welcomed by superintendent Terence Donnelly of the canal company. Then Captain Mulhearn gave eiders in compliance with an invitation they had received from or. P. A. Barrett of Beaver Street to return aver the course and ti1 up at the a old forge Bridge Quot where they would i tendered a reception by tilth old and Young friends along with Many who had migrated from Munch chunk to this Tow n years ago.

Mulhearn. Who is known As the a Silver tongued orator Quot of Carbon county. Sunday morning Iii keeping with their Early training the entire Crew attended mass at St. Marks Catholic Church where Many old friends greeted them which brought to their mind a meeting on their Way through the canal of John and Joseph simmers nearly 80 years of age. Who have been boating continuously sine 1856. The Brothers reside on a farm along the old Durham Road near the Haycock mountains. After returning from Church Din continued on Page three can club and committees were appointed to Walt upon prospective candidates in order to secure their const at to make a fight on primary Day for nomination for the varous offices to be contested for at the election Iii november. The firemen instead of sitting by and taking the crumbs that drop from the political table intend this year to sit Down at the t ii by helping and get some of the choicest cuts. Committees were appointed to wait upon chief Franklin Gilkeson and w. Ii. Ii. Fine with the request that the former stand for the nomination for Burgess and the latter enter the lists As a candidate for tax collector. Another committee is to wait upon Wesley Spencer in an Endeavor to induce him to make the run for Council in the third Ward and in th1 event that he refuses to stand they have the Power to select another candidate to take his place. On candidate from the second and another from the fifth Ward will be approached and the meeting decided not to divulge their names until their consent or refusal had been secured. Rile meeting As a whole decided that it would be expedient this year to Center their efforts on just one candidate in each Ward this particularly to apply to the Cornic manic contests. Even though there Are two councilmen to be elected from each Ward this year Only one will be mime by the firemen As they feel they would lather be assured of the election of one than to make a fight with two and not elect either. This political movement on the part of the firemen was decided on Only after they had convinced themselves that there was no possibility of them getting recognition from the machine candidates now in Power. The fact that it is necessary for these nun who look after the interests and protect the Homes of the citizens of this Community to go out from door to door Selling tickets for benefits an what not in order to keep their Treasury in a condition to allow them to keep up their equipment is the main reason that they ate entering this fight entering it for Justice. Last year among five fire companies the Borough fathers graciously distributed $2560. Just think of it this int Agre amount to buy gasoline new tires new parts for cars new equipment of any and outside of Hose and to pay for Coal to heat their quarters. It is preposterous. In addition to this the Hook and ladder machine has been out of commission for a year practically. Months ago a motion was placed before Council asking that they make an appropriation to provide motive Power for this piece of most necessary equipment. Every member of Council present was in favor of complying with the request of the fireman who were not asking anything for themselves simply requesting that they be furnished with this extra apparatus in order to assure them of being better Able to Cantor the citizens of Bristol in Case the necessity developed at a fire to use ladders. There was one member of Council absent the evening i his nest Ion w As brought up and up to this time this Many a say so has always amounted to More than the mire fourteen votes of his fellow members. The fact that he was not present held the matter in abeyance Tor his henchmen refused to make a move until he had been heard on the subject. The matter was referred to the fire committee at that meeting and when the committee of which the absent member is an important Factor discussed the matter with him he decided at once that tie Borough had no funds to a Ake the town safer to live in. It i it lather strange that there Are no funds available to help keep up the efficiency of the fire department yet there can always be found Flint to distribute Loose stones around on the various thoroughfares of the town. This is Why the firemen want some representatives in Council who Are not Lin tier the dominance of the they want to find out it Thoro is no Money Why there is not. They will Fri out for they Are determined and a determined body of men with As Large an organization As the fire depart Merit behind them will Sway a mighty Bun in of votes. The full personal of the firemen a Independent Republican ticket will probably in announced next week. For rent House for rent. Pond Street just off Jefferson Avenue. Inquire National hardware 8-5-t.
