Arnold is not a father of Parks beware of the a get Rich Quick a Vendor of Clipper or other stocks sold to you by smooth talking strangers. When you do buy Stock buy from a reliable broker whom you know and one whose ail vice you can depend upon. Despit1 the fact that Money is said to he tight in Bristol there have been any number of local merchants Ami others who have recently bought Stock in Copper mines some which Are in existence and some which have never even been started. One of Bristol a most influential citizens Ami a Caehil investor himself has investigated some of Hie securities that have been bought Here and finds that they will never even bring a return if the capital originally infected to the local folks a to were foolish enough to take a Chance with their Money. This gentlemen in speaking of the subject yesterday said a Copper Las and other stocks a being freely floated and sold in Bristol. Some of these stocks Hare been recently investigated by Avereal of the most influential investment companies and their patrons Art advised to severely let them alone. Why do some people seek tiles1 a get Rich Quick Quot concerns and lose All when there Are such Safe invest-1 Meta Ai Home such As building and loan associations elegantly mail aged by Good business men.

Rue the a father of the of there were such a ceremony known As a christening tills paper would perform it on Harry for lie has been tried and found wanting. The Wail of the new councilman has whiskers on it As Long As Methuselah wore when he was nine Hundred years old. It is the same Obi Story a where will we gel the Money Quot Isnit that a Tine stand for a business Man to take on a matter of vital Public importance would it not be much More commendable for him to devise ways and Means of raising the Money or better still dig up a Way to save sufficient Money from funds now received by the Borough. To Mutt these improvements suggested the fixing of the Mill Street wharf included. In a conversation with of this paper a week or councilman Arnold stated to a suggestion that it Wasi Hie to run a Community this is just a Biti tip to the water department of the Borough. Not that the department is not fully qualified to look after its own interests but sometimes even perfectly oiled organizations strike a Snag and fail to function As they should. There Are a number of faucets in this Borough which the Borough know nothing of As a consequent the owners of these faucets Art never charged for their convenience and the other water users of the town who Are less fortunate or probably just a trifle More honest a forced to Bear a greater share of the Burden of water costs than tin should be. There Are folks in town who do their own plumbing work they put in their own stationery tubs Wash paves and etc., As a result there is no report made by plumbers to the water department and As there Are no inspectors looking Over Lite various premises of the town these folks who do their own weak get away with paying the minimum charge for water convenient. Seems to be rather unfair that some folks Are forced to pay for the water they use by a registering meter while others can play then Hose All Day Long if they care to and pay the smallest matters should be appointment of ail Cessa in.

Carty and Franklin Gilkeson spoken of As candidates of people for Burgess there seems to be a general impression around town that the reason Mill and Radcliffe streets Are not permanently paved by the slate. Is because Hie trolley company is not in a position to fix up air tracks and roadbed in the manner the state demands before they Lay permanent state roads. This is a _ fallacy and has no foundation of fact. The trolley company i it As Well m. J. Hill. Trolley manager.

He called at this office with a request that this paper urge upon the authorities the necessity of having these Cross Ings repaired. He had with him at the time a mite which he showed the editor said note was addressed to Engineer Roberts and it decried the condition of the Crossings on the old line of the Railroad As Well As on the sidings used crossing streets for the convenience of Industrial plants. Later or. Peirce asked that the Story he not published As lie had received Assn Alice from someone that the Crossings would be fixed in fact that work a already started on them. The fact is that work was really started on the Walnut Street crossing and in place of the old Rotten planks a Macadam dressing was put Between the tracks hut Here the Wink started and there it finished. Jefferson Avenue crossing Hack of the big White Mill is in a disgraceful condition. The Driver of a car has to pick his Way in order to find solid planks to pass Over. Dorrance Street is in still worse condition acid so on Down the line. It seems to the uninterested onlooker that Here is a Chance for the authorities to do something for the citizens of the town without spending Money. Surely the Obi cry of poverty cannot be advanced in regard to this condition As the Powers can simply Force the Railroad company to make these most necessary repairs if they will Only do it. Will they the business same As or. Printing game. In their line. Business men who apply one principal to their own business and allow othe principals to be applied to Public their endeavours Are not the Light Type to guide the destiny of any Community. Because a Man is a Money making Wool manufacturer a successful Butcher or a merchant who enjoys a Large Trade is Nova reason that he will manage correctly and economically a municipality. Are living a paradoxical life line to the War. The head of the family was among those a whose services were no longer required Quot when the great shipyard of the Harriman Corpora Bristol hebrews renew pledges contributions to War sufferers fund will be made for another year pneumonia claims Stewart baby an infant child of or. And mrs. Stew Ait of Jackson Street Harriman who was taken suddenly ill last w Eek and moved to Harriman Hospital died tuesday morning. The child a malady having developed into pneumonia which treatment failed to overcome. For Sale invalids wheel chair in excellent conditions Price reasonable. Inquire cottage hotel Radcliffe Street 7-15-2t at the recent meeting of the congregation a Atli Achim of Bristol the president Isis dries asked the members to again renew their annual pledges for the War sufferers fund which had been Institute by this organization since the Advent of the world War. Although the War has Long since ceased these contributions to the suffering Peoples of Europe have flowed steadily from the Treasury of lit local synagogue and until such time As the re const met Ion of industries overseas shall be an accomplished fact the human privations reduced to a minimum these monies shall go Forward. Thousand of dollars have been contributed thus far by this handful of men from the jewish population of Bristol and thousands More will undoubtedly be necessary before a state of normalcy has been established. Or. Jos. Singer is in charge of til fund. Mks. John Milligan Laid at rest the funeral of the late mrs. John Milligan who passed away last Friday. Was held on tuesday Ornim from her hit Home on Corson Street. A High mass of requiem Over the remains was celebrate at St. Marks Church at to a. Rn., and in ferment was made in St. Mark s cemetery under the direction of undertaker w. I. Murphy. Wanted Good reliable girl for general housework. Mrs. Clarence Page Cornwells ave Cornwells a. Lion had closed its Gates shortly after the signing of the armistice Aud hundreds of Harriman residents vie pendent upon the shipbuilding Plant for employment were in a quandary to How to earn a livelihood. In due time the source of the family income having run dry it was Only natural that the landlord who Iii this Case a the e. F. C., w As likewise shut Oft ii oui his rents. A i Hose w to had Lait by a sum for a Rainy Day did not feel the effects of unemployment immediately but in Many cases and the one of the Kohlin family in particular the shutdown came like a Holt from a Clear sky. Mrs. Rohlin Laid her Case before the housing department of the emergency Fleet corporation and at once the officials took up the matter of finding Sheller for the four children the husband and wife. On the properly adjoining the Harriman Tow site though part of the company a holdings stands the a i lid re the mansion. Ever since the Purchase of the Tow site ground this Beautiful Home has stood vacant. It was this veritable Castle that the emergency Fleet corporation turned Over to the Rollins As their Home and their few belongings were Corwith moved to Bloomsdale mansion. It was Here but a few years Back the elite of Pennsylvania a fashionable circles frequently gathered for functions befitting Only those of the upper classes. Within its mahogany Walls and expensive trimmings the laughter of fair women and Gay men resounded Over the place. The Trees and shrubbery surrounding the Home is said to be among the finest specimens in this Section of the country Many of them having been imported from foreign climes urn transplanted Here at great Cost to i. Landreth. On the spacious Lawn where once til socially elect played quoits and croquet now gambol mrs. Rohling a four kiddies it with a punctured rubber Ball and a lonesome Kitten that has let a Tith family pet for months. How does it feel to live in a mansion surrounded Iii an atmosphere of luxury yet lacking the things that luxury has mrs. Rohlin says it is Boring lonesome at times Btu for the welfare of the children not a very bail place. But just As soon As my husband gets steady employment said mrs. Rohlin in a going to move to a regular Bons with just enough rooms for our Little faintly and among pleasant neighbors whom i can talk to from my front Potch. The death tiap Quot is still functioning in All its glory and daily near accidents occur which Are never even mentioned so common have they become. Last week an Accident almost Occa red which would have robbed Bristol of one of its bes it cannot pass without Minot j. Hill the of the trolley these by t he it ii coh soon he to i citizens and being noted genial maim Pally was the party of the part ii this mar crash Ami a on valuable a Type of Man snuffed out re rough the glaringly neglectful condition which exists at this terrible spot. Or. Hill was driving his Franklin car from the Tow Side approach of the trap when one of the mad men who can get a License to drive a car by paying a Dollar despite their qualifications to drive came hurdling Over the Bridge from the a promised land Quot site. No warning gave this person Bent on getting Over and when he almost crashed into or. Hills car which was brought to a Stop he became belligerent and refused to Back up. The trolley Man of course Bache i Down the Hill and allow cd the person to pass him rather than have a fuss. When a condition becomes s o odious tilt men like or. Hill Are end angered in crossing this menace tot the Community it is about time that the Council of he Borough and the any exigency which May arise As they probably Ever will a. By this it is not implied that the trolley company is rolling in wealth trolley companies never Are. The fact that this company Laid new ties and rails in Tullytown when the necessity arose for them is positive proof that when til mad is Laid through Bristol if it a i Laid they will also be really to take care of their share Here. No gent i Readd it is not the trolley company. William h. H. Fine proposed for office of tax collector a a a Joe a Grundy and Quot Peter Minster to be denied right to choose candidates this year with the fall primaries but two is no Good reason Moil Tbs off political prognosticators should consider it b is far a i Ding sighted tip this poll much w a pro vement Here. The politicians of the state my argue a what is thus of giving Bristol Good roads Bristol always votes the right Way. And tin Money will be better spent Iii communities where there is a balance of Power .#111 a Chance of overthrowing the machine a no use of chasing a car alter you have caught it Quot seems to by their attitude. There is Only one other place in the world where a stretch of pavement As bad As that from tie Otter Street Railroad Bridge to the Creek on Tipper Radcliffe Street can a found running through a municipality Aud that is the stretch from the end of the fanning on Kike right through the heart of Morrisville. But Morrisville also is in Bucks county and the same old adage can be applied there As Morrisville Folk Are All welded firmly to the machine. In a conversation with or. Mac Okenzie of Eddington the other Day. The physician stated that one of the of Burgess who Are sworn to look the safety of the Community some Steps to remedy conditions Iii authorities have no intent Ion of making this crossing Safe for the Public they at least should close it to traffic. Two cars driven evidently by out of town Drivers unfamiliar with this trap attempted to pass each other on saturday morning on the Bridge with the result that both cars had their fenders badly crushed. After reasons he was take Bristol was the the roads Here had broken six glad to get out it awful of he stated that a Springs on his Hup Mobile in As Many months. Ile Fin tiler stated that people living Down the Pike would not drive to Bristol to shop Iii the fear that their machines would be damaged Over the roads beyond repair. This certainly is not giving Bristol tradesmen a fair shake for their Money.

Hennessey of Lafayette Street anti miss Ella Brt tenderly of Harriman journeyed cussed. To Elkton. . Last saturday and were married at a parsonage of Maryland Quot Gretna Green. I ate Busy picking candidates and probable candidates but they fail to take into consideration that this year Titer will be a new element in the local Field which a Uncle Peter Minster and a Joe Quot Grundy have never before been called upon to contend with. The Independent is in the Field and As a consequence there is Many a Republican and Many a Democrat who in former years has been forced to Vole for the personally chosen and approved candidates handed to him on the ballots of his respective party or else stay away from the polls. Fire fact that this newspaper has convinced people that ii is possible to express an opinion that May be a posit to that of lie ruling Powers fins Clio has Given Many the con rag to express themselves Anc a hat on occasion rather freely. They no longer fear that they will pm thrown out of their jobs knowing that it this occurs they will have medium Iii which to Tell the general Public Why they were denied the privilege of earning a living politicians fear to have their Petty deeds disclosed to the Public gaze and for that reason those who have talked and talked freely for several weeks past have still their positions. There is an Independent movement afoot in this Borough that will sweep All before it. Candidates Are being discussed in the places where men gather and discussed openly a this Mali would make an Ideal candidate for this position and that one Fot that Quot is heard on every Side. The old habit of waiting to be who is dished up to fill the various offices to in contested for seems to have been j Ute rely forgotten. The tact that the name of Angelo Direnzo is the Only one so far made generally Public As a candidate Foi Burgess has caused a number of other names to be mentioned As fitting to hold this High office which while it a been looked upon As an honorary position Only could be made very important with the right Man filling it. Russ i b. Carty of 336 Jefferson venue was one of Tho earliest pos abilities advanced by the progressive end of the Republican party Rhey claiming that he would be acceptable to the various factions in he Borough and that he would make a fearless and capable official. Whether or. Carty has been approached to stand in the primaries it a whether he would stand if approached. The writer has no Means of knowing. From the opinion expressed by his friends he certainly would make an Ideal Burgess and one who would not take orders from anyone. His recent appointment As Secretary it the Board of education nay have been a Stra Getic move on the part of tile Powers but Stra Getic or otherwise he will make an excellent official even holding this position would not interfere with his tunning in tile primary and if he runs he will receive the nomination and Titis statement is made without qualification. Then there is Franklin Gilkeson. The chief of the Best fire department in Pennsylvania. He would make an Ideal candidate for this High office and he too might win the regular Republican nomination if i would agree to stand for office. In fact it has been said that if this Young lawyer wished to enter politics and take the matter seriously he might occupy All the High places within the gift of the people. He could beat the Grundy organization in the Borough and this beating administered following right on the heels of the severe thrashing recently Given them in the state would make chief Gilkeson a noted character and the hails of Congress would he attainable to him and with this position would naturally follow county and District leadership now in the hands of the heretofore unbeatable Grundy. Again it is problematical w Hether this sure Winner will care to enter the lists. The term of tax collector Kraft expires this Yeti and a number of friends of we h. La. Fine have mentioned his name As a Man most Lilly qualified to fill the shoes of the present incumbent of office. Or. Kraft has not signified his intention of retiring Btu or. Fines friends and Liny Are Many among the younger men of the Community Advance to lib argument that be has every right to submit name to the voters of the town ii the primary Ami allow them to decide who shall be the regular Republican nominee for the office. Squire Kraft a been a most competent official a there is no one who advances any criticism of him or his administration when the candidacy or to he More Correct the discussion of or. Fine As a candidate who would be acceptable to Many is Dis the present collector has tilled his office with credit but it is an elective office one within the gift of the people of this town and there National been a i wily one Man a life right. This seems to be the sentiment of a number of people who claim that the Young blood of the town who will i 1 its salvation in the future should step out and take the reins of dictation from Hie hands of those now holding them. A will Fine is a High Type of Young manhood he is a Hustler who Ever has a cheery word for every one he knows and his acquaintance is an extensive one owing to his Many years of faithful service in the Farmers Bank. Ile has always straight line Republican an while never actively identified with the party should be acceptable even to those Vav to consider themselves the arbiters of who and who not shall dare run for office. Under this democratic form of government which this country and its various branches Are supposed to function this hand picking of candidates should be relegated to the Garret where Are stored the things of the past and no better time to do this than september 21st. Vav Hen asked the other evening by a Friend a solicitous Friend As to whether he would make the run this tall or. Fine said a i Ani not in politics in fact have never considered entering the political lists and As a consequence your question comes As rather a Surprise i have thought nothing of the Council of the Borough which Tor years has been dominated by its strongest character for no other reason than that no positive charioteer other than this one Are Ever Blower to run Oil the Republican ticket is also being carefully consider d by the voters of the various wards they Are sick and tired of ending men As their representatives who look Over for the nod of approval before they cast their vote on any subject. Men who will be Able to stand tip on their two feet Anil state the desires of their constituents Are being talked of and these men Are of the calibre who will not be stumped by the old time worn cry a we have no Money Quot they will have sufficient initiative and Grey matter Back of it to suggest reasonable and Businesslike ways and Means of raising necessary funds for the realization of their demands. In the second Ward the names of i Bourns Harper and Charles Herman a spoken of As men who will receive the support of the rank and file of the Republican voters in the primaries if they will Only enter the race. The former has been a member of Council and is a Man much admired for his stand on Many questions particularly his fearless tight for prohibition measures lit Bristol even before the eighteenth amendment was thought possible. In the third Ward Wesley Spencer has been mentioned As a representative who would be sure of winning his primary fight if he would agree to make it he is a member of the american legion and despite the fact that this organization of returned heroes As an organization will not enter politics they As individuals will Wield considerable influence and the treatment they have been accorded by the ruling Powers in the Borough will not soon be forgotten. Lit the first Ward the Only name mentioned for Council not advanced by the a system Quot is that of John Snoyer. A positive character who has Given local questions his time and attention for years a Broad minded Clear headed fellow who has weighed and discussed local publicly and in private and for the reason that he cannot be handled has been kept in the background by the rulers of the party in Power. No More background for John he will be one of the candidates on the Republican ticket in the first Ward if he will Only consent to make the run and he win his fight in the primaries. In tire fifth Ward there is Ray Neva Gold and John j. Mcgee both of them Able and capable and both of the Type who will not look for the nod. And who would not answer it if they received it. This Type of Republican will raise i is Borough from the Depths of Boss Ridden despond. To the Heights of twentieth Century advancement and vim. The fact that Ray Neva Gold is an instant chief of the fire department and As such has been confirmed Council is an argument advanced by Council is an argument against his running for Council from his Ward. As assistant chief he a not elected by Council he was chosen by his fellow firefight in the department and there is no reason Why he should not fill both positions with dignity and credit. The firemen of the town Are sick anti disgusted with the treatment they receive from the ruling Powers Ami they want several Good firemen in Council who will stand up and and continued on Page five. _
