Bristol Bucks County Independent (Newspaper) - August 19, 1921, Bristol, Pennsylvania To. I Forrest i hip it Para my we Al Hull Al in theatre Jil 4 j to Vijh j a a we \ to a a is legion tent fair is arranged for will be held under Canvas first week in october Kewpie dolls n everything by remark to firemen not expect Borough your fire apparatus a a you can to buy told them to beg from door to door Bristol pays 45 cents yearly pct 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 elated to a committee of firemen words to the effect of the following you cannot expect the Borough to buy your Ute apparatus go out from door to door and raise a collection Tor 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 i lie exact Worms used by the suave gentleman but they express what he meant. This statement was the Quot Straw that broke the cancels and spot it tile political elimination of a a Grundy As a dominating Factor Iii local politics. Was anything Ever More ridiculous Quot you cannot expect the Borough to buy your tire apparatus Quot Liat in the name of heavens do the Hie companies need apparatus to to 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 tire committee of Borough Council expended last year $4,519.-55. This amount is the total it Cost this Borough for its tire Protection. Figuring that there Are i too residents Here this Means that 4 5 cents per head it Cost the town to protect its residents from tipi devastation of possible conflagrations a rat Ber cheap when compared with what some of the larger cities pay. 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,-u00 inhabitants spent on an average of $4.75 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 tire insurance companies in this town. Are kept Down to a minimum owing to the excellence of the tire 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 tires that Quot 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 w to has thousands of dollars Worth of property Here to be protected. That such 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 pay these men for the work they do for nothing in the Protection of his property nor Wottle he repay the Borough for funds they would have justly received and which would be in the Borough Treasury if his prop erty and other property in the Borough were assessed at somewhere near its True valuation. It was derided by members of cohort Bracken Post american legion at their regular kneeling 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 in for the purpose of Alig menting 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 he. To is planned to hold the affair which will be known As Quot the american legion tent under 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 the Mammoth tent that will be used. The big top erected. In kits will he arranged on either Side of the enclosure and each succeeding Booth will be for legion purposes. Or in other words will lie utilized for the Sale Aud the chancing of articles that will bring a return in Money to the Post. The other Booths it is now 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 be Able to interest manufacturers from we Honi they Purchase Large Bills of goods to make a donation of some article in order that it in turn May in turned into Money at the end of the week. To be Given to the legion. Of course there will in 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 when the attractive Kewpie a May he secured both by Purchase and through chances commander Franklin Tykeson is a firm believer in the Money drawing Power of the Kew pie and he has insisted on til is 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 the most Mammoth As Well As most successful affairs of its kind Ever held within the confines of this Borough. The ladles Aux Liary of the legion. Of course will do their full share to bring about the desired results they will have a Label it of their own and be in charge of several of the Booths at the fair their fair hands will Cook tasty goodies. And fashion fancy articles which will he vended. And As the result of their Handiwork. And their aggressiveness in doing Anil accomplishing things they Start after the coffers of the leg Ion will in greatly Augu Niente. Abolish the paid fire department and save $5,000 per month is advice of Harriman citizens to emergency Fleet organization is outwitted by Independent citizens spanning Delaware from Bristol to Burlington. Might be done in this manner discarded wooden ships used As carriers this ply i to be used on Hudson Only thirty boats needed for Span Here in the Issue of the Philadelphia Star of August 12th, Issi 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 a reality 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 hacking the Bridge building project than Ever before a but whether there can he found sufficient Public spirit to successfully bring to a termination such a project remain. To but seen. Frankly this paper has no idea that a Bridge will Ever in built across the River at this Point for no other reason than that those who would 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 backing from both Burlington and Bristol the project could never he developed. At this time a Pontoon Bridge such As is to he built in the Hudson River running from Yonkers to Alpine. Would Cost very Little Money. As compared to the other types of Bridges that have formerly been pro 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 Quot Der discussion owing to the cast 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. Arid they spend less per year for new material and equipment and All running costs than is spent in Harriman per month. Why have a chief at a salary of $500 per month with a person of men amounting to approximately thirty to do his bidding when there is Little or nothing for them to do the Only Large fire that has Ever occurred in the Tow site one of the lodging houses resulted in a $50.-000 loss and it would have been burning yet if the Volunteer department of Bristol had not come up Here and put it out. To Hief 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 Jinp it r on the Job. And like a Flash the fire was under control. What is the reason for keeping this department functioning at $60,-000 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 and its High pureed chief. This letter is the first of a series that will be written your paper on conditions As they really exist in the Tow site Ami As i have lived Here tar the past two years. I have a pretty Good idea How things Are being and have been run Here. Thanking you Tor the lion i feel you will give mimic Al in w hich is n for the authorities. I Ani.

Every big picture that is shown in the larger cities will he 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 amuse-1 meat lovers of Bristol should demonstrate their appreciation of the action of the theatre management in arranging such a pleasant season for them by patronizing this House As it deserves to he patronized. The local Bridge the ships pontoons Are to be 160 feet at centres anchored to screw piles with cables. This will leave 110 feet clearance for River boats to pass Between the pontoons. The steel in Perst Ruer tire will leave a Clearway of not less than 55 feet. Enough for most of the River Craft to pass tinder with ease. For tall masted ships there will he a drawbridge in the Centre with 110 feet clearance. It is estimated that a ship can pass through the draw in five minutes no that the delays to traffic crossing the Bridge will he very slight.

Like of cry other project advocated for this District this one May create a seven Days wonder but after the talk has died Down everyone will simply sit Hack 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.

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 was forced out of his position. We feel that i any matter where a principal was involved that or.

The residents of this Tow site do not understand Why a Good Man with past training that especially fits him for this kind of work is thrown out on some Flimsy excuse while a number of unnecessary employees Are retained.

Best to give the old gentleman peace of mind at least for the balance of this Campaign by assuring Bim that there will be no third party in the Field against his ticket on election Day. Of course even Quot Uncle As charming and suave a gentleman As he is cannot expect to go through the primary without opposition and there xviii be several of his nominees whose claim for recognition at the hands of the electors of the Borough xviii be questioned. Only a few however As the organization either unwittingly or by intent have nominated a number of candidates who were chosen to represent and stand for tin interests of the firemen of the town. Good candidates is what the firemen started out to secure candidates who could not be influenced and who would not be guided in Council by the nod of the Lead. That heretofore has ruled the Borough. The firemen nor ibis paper had no idea of. Simply opposing a ticket or a candidate because they were endorsed by the organization. Where the organization Lias picked men who stand for something beside Boss dominance they will be Given the Hearty support of the Little band. Who by a few mysterious meetings and several articles in this newspaper have forced the organization to throw aside a custom followed for Yea is and instead of just returning the old rubber Stamps to office they reached out and picked men with whom they were sure to win. Theirs xviii be the Victory according to their ideas they will be Able to Point on election Day to the men they named. But the Victory already belongs to the Little band before referred to who forced them to make the Choice of candidates. The bunk which appeared in the Quot daily excuse Quot Grundy a own newspaper about Quot Veteran councilmen decide to step out and give younger element a Chance Quot 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 not line up men of strength they a 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 retire. They were canned. To get Back to the real subject candidates it is laughable but even the Quot mighty Grundy and his shrewd lieutenant and Field Marshall Quot Uncle Pete Quot can be fooled in the game of politics which has Cost the former a Young Fortune and a which has brought to the latter financial affluence. The Quot Little inn Quot Ai determined citizens pulled Oft Over on them these men baited the Hook As it were. And the two solons of political 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 xxx As there but he was not getting away Vith 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 petitions Are being among the citizens of Ward to secure the necessary number of elector endorsers for Domen ick Petina.
