Bristol Bucks County Independent (Newspaper) - August 19, 1921, Bristol, Pennsylvania Independent leads the local Field in paid circulation by several Hundred. We Challenge contradiction. Maul inputs. Legion tent fair is arranged for will be held under Canvas first week in october Kewpie dolls in everything by remark to firemen a you cannoli expect Borough to buy your fire apparatus a told them to beg from door to door Bristol pays 45 cents yearly per capital other cities $4.75 for fire Protection the political Goose of Joe Grundy was cooked in Bristol that memorable night several months ago when he stated to a committee of firemen words to the effect of the following a you cannot expect the Borough to buy your fire apparatus go out from door to door and raise a collection for it and when you collect nine tenths of the amount needed come to me and i will give you the other one tenth. These Are not tie exact words used by the suave gentleman but they express what he meant. This statement was the a Straw that broke the camels Back a and spelt the political elimination of Joe Grundy As a dominating Factor in local politics. Was anything Ever More ridiculous a you cannot expect the Borough to buy your fire apparatus a what in the name of heavens do the fire companies need apparatus for Are they for the amusement of the members or Are they for use in protecting the Homes and places of business of the tax payers of this Borough ? according to the Borough year Book the fire committee of Borough Council expended last year $4,519.-35. This amount is the total it Cost this Borough for its fire Protection. Figuring that there Are 10,000 residents Here this Means that 4 5 cents per head it Cost the town to protect its residents from the devastation of possible conflagrations rather cheap when compared with what some of the larger cities . As a comparison five cities in new Jersey were taken and the Money expended by them for fire Protection figured Down to Cost per head these cities none of which have Over 125,-000 inhabitants spent on an average of $4.7 5 cents per inhabitant or about ten times As much As it Cost Bristol. Bristol is getting off pretty cheap at that and when it is taken into consideration that the rate of the fire insurance companies in this town Are kept Down to a minimum owing to the excellence of the fire department Here it costs Bristol practically nothing for its department. Yet with All this in View the Man who runs the town who will not allow anyone else to manage it. Yet has not the time or else lacks the ability to do the Job properly himself went on record and told the firemen who appealed to the Council for a Means to transport their truck to future fires that a they should not expect the Borough to buy their is it not sufficient that these firemen should give their time Gratis in fighting fires risk their lives and often destroy their wearing apparel without getting any redress without forcing them to go from door to door and beg funds that they might have apparatus to assure them of doing their work in a finished manner is it not preposterous on the face of it and still More preposterous for a Man who has thousands of dollars Worth of property Here to be protected that Bitch a condition should be forced on these men by him and through his direction. Well can he afford to give the one tenth which he promised if the one tenth were Given even then he would not they do Foi it was decided by members of i Kobo 11 Bracken Post american legion at their regular meeting tuesday evening to hold an open air Bazaar the first week in october on the vacant lot on Pond Street across from no. 2 fire company. The affair of course will be for the purpose of augmenting the Post Treasury and from the Advance work done by the committee who have been working on the proposition for a number of weeks there is every Chance of the affair being the rousing Success that it deserves to be. T i is planned to hold the affair i which will be known As a the american legion Lent fair a under i Canvas and Wesley Spencer is in touch with a Post in South. Jersey who is to tip him off As to where he can secure tile Mammoth tent that will be used. The big top erected Booths will be arranged on either Side of the enclosure and each succeeding Booth will be for legion purposes or in other words will be utilized for the Sale and the chancing of articles that will bring a return in Money to the Post. The other Booths it is Nowr planned Are to be turned Over to the progressive business men of the town to be used As exhibits and it is hoped that they will he Able to interest manufacturers from whom they Purchase Large Bills of goods to make a donation of some article in order that it in turn May be turned into Money at the end of the week to be Given to the legion. Of course there will be a dancing platform arranged for where those who enjoy tripping the Light fantastic May indulge in their favorite pastime to their hearts Content. There will be a Kewpie doll Booth where the attractive Kewpie a May be secured both by Purchase and through chances commander Franklin is a firm believer in the Money drawing Power of the Kerr pie and lie Lias insisted on this particular feature being Well looked after. With six weeks yet remaining to perfect All minor details there is every indication that this will be one of Tho most Mammoth As Well As most successful affairs of its kind Ever held within the confines of this Borough. The ladies auxiliary of the legion. Of course will do their full share to bring about the desired results they will have a table a a of their own and he in charge of several of the Booths at the fair their fair hands will Cook tasty goodies and fashion fancy articles which will be vended and As the result of their Handiwork and their aggressiveness in doing Ami accomplishing things they Start after the coffers of the legion will he greatly augmented. Abolish the paid fire department and save $5,000 per month is advice of Harriman citizens to emergency Fleet organza ti0n is by Independent spanning Delaware from Bristol to Burlington. Might be done in this manner discarded wooden ships used As carriers this to be used on Hudson Only thirty boats needed for Span Here a reality never be Forrest theatre open for season contracts sighed with Paramount and other big producers for season of 1921-22 these men for the work manager Wilson of the Forrest theatre announces that this popular amusement Center will open up again on full time next monday evening. And that the 1921-2 2 season will be better in every respect than any that has gone before. This is the second season under the ownership of David Sablosky and what he has attempted to bring about Ever since he bought out the House from the former owners has at last come to pass and cast Iron contracts have been secured with the largest Pio Duckers in the country meaning that the Forrest is assured of All of the first runs of the Best pictures obtainable on the Market. It is with Pride that the management Point to the fact that they will nothing in the Protection of his prop be exclusive producers of Paramount erty nor Wohld he repay the Borough for funds they would have justly received and which would be in the Borough Treasury if his property and other property in the Borough. Were assessed at somewhere near its True valuation. Over the bumps it would come hard on some people to drink the Home brew stuff they Are getting if the Law required them to put it Down. It is currently reported on Pine Street that Phil Waters has gone to work. Frank Green of Mill Street who furnishes new soles for humanity during the week Days spent part of sunday last picking cherries and his neighbors Are now smacking their lips in anticipation of some delicious Cherry pie. A John Mcclafferty and Pete Boyle with j. Gallagher Are in a Dilema at present having clubbed together to buy an automobile. They cannot now quite decide whether they want a Buick a Ford or a hand car. A a Peter Mcginley of mount airy was a guest on monday of j. Mclafferty of Buckley Street during which time a Fie said his Raven locks were Hora. Pictures in this Section Paramount week at the Forrest will be the week of september 4th, and this theatre with every other Paramount House in the United states will this week show Paramount features and Paramount alone. It will indeed be an epoch marking week in the history of Bristol amusements. Iii addition to Paramount the Forrest Wil show exclusively first National Goldwyn re Alart metro select and Vita graphs. Every big picture that is show i in the larger cities will be seen at the Forrest and they will All be shown while they Are new and not after they have been worn out in other places. Showing this class of pictures costs real Money and the in the Issue of the Philadelphia Star of August 12th, 1881, a prediction was made by the then Bristol correspondent of that paper that the Delaware River Between Bristol and Burlington would be spanned by a Bridge within fifty years. There Are ten years of the fifty predicted at that time remaining but whether the Bridge will Ever become is a matter of conjecture. The one great drawback that has always been encountered by advocates of a Bridge is the prohibitive Cost of such a Structure. Right at this time there is a better Opportunity for realizing the ambition of those backing the Bridge building project than Ever before but whether there can be found sufficient Public spirit to successfully bring to a termination such a project remains to be seen. Frankly this paper has no idea that a Bridge will Ever be built across the River at this Point to a no other reason than that those who won i i have sufficient influence and Power to put Over such a Gigantic scheme would he Apt to oppose instead of advocate it and without powerful financial and political hacking from both Burlington and Bristol the project could developed. At this time a Pontoon Bridge such As is to be built in the Hudson River running from Yonkers to Al Pine would Cost very Little Money As compared to the other types of Bridges that have formerly been proposed Here. The wooden ships that Are boing disposed of by the government. Could easily be Comer Ted into the carriers of the weight of the Structure and no More than thirty of them would be necessary to Complete the entire Job. If this plan were to be put in operation River traffic would in no Way be bored with As a Center Span be a lifting draw. I to plans for the Hudson Bridge Call for the following cations which might be the local Bridge the ships pontoons Are to be i fib Teet it centres anchored to screw piles with cables. This will leave 110 feet clearance for River boats to pass Between the pontoons. I he steel superstructure will leave a Clearway of not less than 35 feet. I enough for most of the River Craft to pass under with ease. For tall masted ships there will be a drawbridge in the Centre with to feet clearance. It is estimated that hip can pass through the draw five minutes so that the delays Hallie crossing the Bridge will x Lite draw Span there will be a fender boat of the opening to through. It is planned to build at first three roadways each ten feet wide with to o platforms for pedestrians. If traffic warrants additional roadways can be provided. The weight of the Structure itself will Settle these boats Down into Tho water so that any additional traffic put on the Bridge will not in any Way affect buoyancy and will not be Felt those using the Bridge. Like every other project advocated tor this District this one May create a seven Days wonder Blit after the talk Bas died Down everyone will simply sit Back and wait for someone else to take Steps toward bringing the proposition to a head and finally like All other progressive ideas it will be finally cast in the discard or forgotten. Harriman pa., aug. 18, 1918. Editor of the Independent Bristol a. Dear sir with the controversy about closing up a portion of the Tow site in a a Der discussion owing to the Cost of heating the houses in question it strikes me As a citizen of Harriman that if the emergency Fleet officials really had any intention of re trenching in order to save Money they would do so by cutting off at least $5,000 per month expense in running the Tow site fire department. What is the necessity of a paid fire department in a town of less than two thousand people especially while work at the Yard is at a standstill Bristol has ample fire Protection with a Volunteer department and they spend less per year j for new material and equipment and All running costs than is spent in Harriman per month. Why have a chief at a salary of $300 per month with a personal of men amounting to approximately thirty to do his bidding when there is Little or nothing for them to do i he Only Large fire that has Ever occurred in the Tow site one of the lodging houses resulted in a $50.-000 loss and it w Ould have been burning yet if the Volunteer department of Bristol had not come up Here and put it out. Thief Aungst with his High priced pumping equipment. Was simply working on the conflagration with weak streams from the Mains of the town Bristol put their pumper on the Job. And like a Flash the fire was under control. What is the reason for keeping this department functioning at $60 too per year if the Fleet authorities Are really in Earnest about cutting Down expenses there Are men aplenty in Harriman willing and anxious to form a Volunteer department. And the town would he just As efficiently protected As it is now with its High priced department. Emits High priced chief.

It can easily he seen the slender funds of the organization Are practically exhausted. Which explained the necessity of calling for assistance from the More fortunate residents of the town. It was decided at the meeting to form an auxiliary organization for the purpose of raising funds for the continuance of this Good work. Joseph f.

He has always been willing to work for Tim Best interests of the people of the Vil loge As Well As for the Bot interests of the emergency Fleet Cor to rat Ion.

He Lias also done everything in his Power to Aid in our Public school and Church affairs. We feel that he has done All that tie could to Alii those who were unemployed and in distress. It has been stated in the Public press that the controversy Between or. Boardman and his superiors in Philadelphia rested on a matter of principal. That because or. Boardman had refused to certify As Correct something that he Felt was not Correct that he Wuis forced out of his position. We feel that in any matter where a principal was involved that or. Boardman would follow the dictates of his conscience alone. I he residents of this Tow site do not understand Why a Good Man with past training that especially fits him Foi this kind of work is thrown out on some Flimsy excuse while a number of unnecessary employees Are retained. We feel fiut or. Boardman should he absolutely cleared of any charges that might be against him and that he should he reinstated with full authority or the charges should be i oven and made Public.

At a meeting of the citizens Republican club held at their Headquarters 351 Lafayette Street Early in the week the name of or. Petina was placed before the members and they unanimously voted to request him to stand As the italians of Bris-�1 that they should have some recognition and a voice 4n the Borough government by having a representing of their own in Council or. Petina. Who is one of the longest resident italians within the fines of the Borough at first loathe to make the fight As he up to t in time his name was mentioned had no political aspirations. He Only consented on being urged to sent his people and the which he is held by All citizens will doubtlessly tar in the race. Con was f head. That Borough. The firemen nor this paper had no Aff a of. Supply opposing a ticker or a candidate because they were endorsed by the organization. Where the organization has picked men who stand for something beside Boss dominance they will be Given the Hearty support of Tho up Baruj who. By a few mysterious meetings and several articles in this newspaper. Have forced the organization to throw aside a custom followed Veals and instead of just the old rubber Stamps to readied out and picked whom they were Stire to will be the Victory according to their ideas they will be Able to Point on i election Day to the men they named hut the Victory already belongs to the Little band before referred who forced them to make the of candidates. The bunk which appeared in the airy excuse a Grundy a own newspaper about a Veteran councilmen decide to step out and give younger element a Chance a ridiculous the veterans were told that they had better climb up on a shelf and forget their political ambitions As the handwriting on the Wall decreed that if the gang did no line up men of strength they would go Down to bitter defeat. That is the reason the veterans retired not through any desire of their own with one possible exception they did not re tire. They were canned. I get Back to the real subject c Candida test it is laughable but even the a a mighty Grundy and his shrewd lieutenant and Field Marshall Uncle Pete a can be fooled in the game of politics which has Cost the former a Young Fortune and which has brought to the latter financial affluence. The a Little band of determined citizens bulled of Over on them these men baited the Hook it were and the two solons of poli Cal manipulation in this District not Only swallowed the bait but also Hook line and sinker. At a meeting several weeks ago names of prospective candidates with Independent tendencies were mentioned by the firemen and other independents gathered there was a representative of the gang at that meeting one of their Stool pigeons was there hut he was not getting away with anything the leaders of Hie movement knew he was there and they talked of things Only which they wanted him to carry Back to continued on Page five repro respect in classes of carry him Maple Beach residents complain of parking cars memorial Shaft now awaits Bronze Tablet rile Bannister Marble works have placed in position on the Post office Plaza a base for the Monument to be erected in memory of the boys who went from this town and Marie the supreme sacrifice during the world War. A column to be placed on the base has also been finished and now awaits the Tablet containing names of the Soldier dead to make this memorial Complete. A residents of Maple Beach in great numbers Are complaining daily about the added danger they Are obliged to contend with in the event of a conflagration occurring in their midst. If a fire happened at present to any dwelling within the limits of the Beach they say it would be impossible to get help from the Bristol fire department whom they have a a depend upon owing to the frequent blockade of the Entrance Over the Bridge by a twists who Park their cars near the Forrest theatre. Evidently there is room enough they say on the opposite Side of Mill Street along the old Railroad which is not used for traffic yet affords space enough for quite a number of cars
