Jane Mcgill Ley has jumped into the Lead in the contest to determine Bristol a most popular Young lady in Bristol with a total vote reported on tuesday evening of 2694, deposing Mary Kessler who has held the Lead steadily from the opening of the contest who this week registered Only 2250 votes. Hilda is third Vav it it an even 900 Bell fourth with 855 and Smith brings up the real the fact that the girls have the summer Home of Joseph r. Grundy was entered one night last week by professional thieves who ransacked the premises from cellar to Garret and finally took away As their loot a Quantity of silverware and several articles that were valued More for their associations than for their intrinsic Worth. A rite family have not yet opened the Home for the summer and every door and w window that is provided with a lock was fastened when they left for the Winter months. The elaborate burglar alarm system with which the House is equipped was unfortunately not connected and to this May be attributed the fact that the burglars worked undisturbed. Entrance was gained by forcing a Side window facing the Nesh Aminy Creek and the work seems to be that of skilled second Story men As a Jimmy undoubtedly was the instrument used. The door Between the Kitchen and pantry was Jimmie open and Access thus gained to the living rooms. The silverware wit in ii was All of the finest must have been tied up and Cai l red away the new Silver which the family used each Day. And also some old and valued pieces that had been in the family for generations. Every Bureau and closet on the second floor was ransacked an umbrella which or. Grundy smother had brought with her from Paris and which she prize highly was demolished. As the thieves Only carried away the real Pearl handle. A revolver was among the articles taken. The thief or thieves evidently had no fear of being detected As the contents of the Bureau drawers were strewn about the floor As if each article had been examined and those the intruders did not care to carry with them were thrust ruthlessly aside. A number of pairs of new silk stockings was included in the loot taken by the marauders. The Telephone wires were carefully snipped presumably before the window was Jimmie. The robbery was discovered by one of the workers about the place noticing the window standing open in the morning. He called the attention of the general overseer of the Grundy farm and upon investigation it was seen that the House had been visited by robbers. When the premises were carefully inspected by a member of the family the above list of articles we Ere reported As missing. Careful investigation by the state police failed to disclose a clue that it Lead to the ultimate discovery identification of the miscreants the police smile a knowing smile asked if they have any Hope of bad bandits who William e.

Fleckenstine a narrow escape rear end of Ford hangs Over canal draw bldg a a prompt action saves drenching private Roberts buried sunday or. Ii Fleckenstine of Newport Ville. Had a mighty narrow escape on monday afternoon at the Washington Street crossing of the canal. Prompt action on the part of men operating a canal boat and passersby probably saved the distinguished doctor from a thorough drenching and possibly serious bodily injury. The doctor failed to notice the approaching canal boat when he started to drive his Ford Coupe on the winging Bridge crossing the canal. The mules pulling the boat and the greater portion of their Tow had passed the Bridge when the doctors car claimed up when he was fairly on the Bridge he saw that the draw was about to open and thinking that he had plenty of time he started to Back off. This was his mistake. He the United states government will not Purchase the property of the merchant shipbuilding corporation at Harriman the plan they intend to follow is to Salvage All of the material and equipment now belonging to the government on the Harriman property with the exception of the Brick and Concrete buildings and the pipes and conduits running underground which it would be dangerous to remove. The above is official in so far As in Yubing can be official coming from Washington before the new shipping Board which has already been appointed approves of the plan As announced. While the formation of the foregoing plan will doubtlessly be Accher fitted to Admiral Benson who in the absence of a shipping Board has been handling the affairs of the emergency Fleet it is doubtlessly the conclusion of the Congress determined through the investigation of the various committees who for months have been considering the various angles of the local problem. Doubtlessly the solons in the Halls of Congress have weighed the matter from the following standpoint. It would Cost the United states $1, 300.000, to secure title to the Harriman ground. By salvaging the material owned by the government on the property they will be Able to realize approximately $1,000,000. This added to the sum paid Harriman would mean an additional investment for the government of $2, 300.000, on top of the enormous amount spent to build the Yard under War time pressure and War time prices. The government in this instance is looking at the proposition from the standpoint of Good business and instead of timing up this More than two millions of dollars for an indefinite period they would rather realize the million or More dollars they will secure through the Salvage plan. According to the agreement entered into by the government and or. Harriman the former have six months in Wolph to remove their property and at the end of that time or january 1st to be exact every building standing on the property at North Bristol and everything else of value will revert to the ownership of the Harriman interests. Already Steps have been taken to secure bids for material the same to be held up until the Sanction of the newly appointed shipping Board is Given to the entire project As outlined. This Sanction will undoubtedly follow As the Board is appointed by the administration and the fact that the governing Powers of Hie nation have taken the stand that the above is the most economical method the prow of the boat touched it to push it open the Boatman seeing the doctors peril swung the nose of by rabbi Bevent bal.
