Wen Ope lied years ago Aud us pen is by competent teachers there has Ben a Sharp decline of the injuries and fatalities of the child in Iii the Borough. In other words the playgrounds taught the average child to play intelligently and without malicious destruction. Also it a pm them out of harms Way. These two act a a Raj alone Haw done More Good for the youth of the town than any other method known. S Aud now. Because the average resident of a Borough is a to forget that an institution take j care of their children very Cay in. The week and asks for no return the playgrounds Are dangerously closet j expiring. Ail institution of this James Mccarry a a Harty i Dos not need advert Tai no. It it Asse. The reception at the Home of merits should he sufficiently known attended by about of to every resident in the Borough. It Bride was discoverers or inventors ? the efforts of the organization through the columns of the courier to cover tip their blundering Campaign of it the caption Are indeed pitiful. The galleys of mud smeared Over the pages of recent couriers is just reeking w Ith the Slimy intrigues of Back room politics. From the very beginning of this discussion we have base Fly Flur conclusions on official open sources Stich As the records at Doylestown the Borough year Book. The report of the citizens committee As received and adopted by Council the Blackband White speeches of the Burgess. Or. Scott Etc., anti actual meetings of committees not phantom ones. Furthermore we have not used hear say testimony but have taken the couriers own printed pages presuming these were honest records of said reports and speeches we ask our readers whether or not this is playing the game fair on the other hand the courier has played a game of pernicious juggling hedging lying and deception. We have shown up much of this in previous editorials and will in this one Endeavor to give More Concrete evidences. If these Are not sufficient to convince any fair minded person of the deceptive nature of the couriers Campaign we Are prepared to prove it at the proposed Public meeting. We can do this by the testimony of reputable citizens in whose presence one closely connected with the publication of these deceptive articles admitted the fact of deception justifying the juggling of the figures by the assertion a that is what figures Are on Page four of this Issue we reprint word for word. The article from the Bristol courier of november 25th, 1924, containing the account of the joint meeting of the citizens committee and the finance committee. If our readers will refer to this article they will read the heading a commissioners fix $7,000,000 for tax purposes a and a i it 11# further Down a sub heading. A plan to keep assessed values Dow it and raise in the but by of the article the report of the committee Oil Borough expenses has this clause a we recommend therefore that in arranging the taxation for 1925 that the assessment and rate be fixed so that an income of $90,000 will be procured sign tires the report was received filed and upon motion attached Burgess Anderson addressed this meeting see article. A the urged that the valuations be kept Down and the rate boosted so that the Borough would profit by the inert s i in the Resolution adopted by the citizens committee article Are these words &Quot$7,000,-000 upon which a tax rate of 15 Mills $105,000 would yield after deducting discounts commissions and remits an amount sufficient to cover the sum necessary As suggested by the committee on Borough this plan was def need and extolled in the couriers editorials of december 4 and december 6, and also in the speech of or. Scott at the annual a love least As reported in the courier of March 3isl. This plan was adopted by Council at a special meeting on december 1st. Or. Scott s speech As recorded in courier of March 31st says so. Then in tit face of All their own articles recording the official adoption of this plan to product $90,000 needed Revenue or $105,000 less commission remits Etc they have the temerity to say in their a Galley of mud in monday Issue that it w As not planned to do this. It not Why did the citizens committee after careful investigation through its committee on Borough expenses recommend it let the courier answer that question. There Are Many other questions we would like to ask but we will Reserve them for the proposed Public meeting. Suffice it now to say that they suddenly a a discovered that $90,000 be Needer Ann $66,850 would do. Then they suddenly a a discovered that a recent decision enable them to reduce the Bond rate. Noble discoverers Iii tin mud galleys recently smeared Over the couriers pages it is said that it was never intended to Levy a Bond rate of 64 Mills. Please sirs re a Fer to your own editorial of december 6th. 1924 and read your own words a follows a but Brough taxes Are not the Only taxis Winch Are imposed. We have Iii addition county and Borough Bond taxes the former assessed by the county commissioners the latter assessed at the time c f the issuance of the various Bonds. It is Well therefore to consider How these taxes would work out with a county tax rate of 6 Mills and a Borough Bend tax rate of 6 Mills making 124 milk in if our readers will refer to the courier article printed on another Page they will read the words of our Burgess As follows a the tax upon tile various Boud is a Les of the Borough the rate of which had already been fixed and also the words of a Resolution by citizens committee As follows a the rate of tax Tor payment of Borough Bonds issued having been fixed and assessed at the time such Hon is were issued and under the Law not being slice it i ble to any suddenly they a a discover a Law. We wonder where they found it. Then they a a discover laight balances in the Bond Treasury whereas they knew these existed Long ago As any one can a a discover by looking at the Borough year Book where balances ape shown for years Hack and to which we called attention weeks ago in our editorial. All our calculations were based on the year Bxs a and upon Bona fide meetings of the finance committee not those meetings of the committee hat Are held in Grundy a office with no members of the committee present. The a a official records Are As we have presented them. In computing the amount of bonded indebtedness we figured in tile $80,000 voted last year and much of which has been expended and interest is being paid on the Money borrowed until the Bonds Are floated Aud interest will have to be paid after tile Bonds Are floated. It matters Little whet Bel that interest is being paid to the Bond Holder or to the Farmers National Bank. The courier and its hackers have certainly made a to of a a discoveries lately. In this respect they have Columbus. Balboa and other discoverers beaten to a frazzle. Yes. They have done such wonderful work along this line that they deserve the name of inventors.
