Bristol Bucks County Independent (Newspaper) - May 5, 1921, Bristol, Pennsylvania A. In Quot i. Quot w Alliance legion boys again a Over the top a their show a Joy time at the Forrest theatre last night was most successful Mes Ernest Lawrence entertains at cards one of the most pleasing affairs of the season enjoyed on wednesday seven lives saved by Landreth Fence Morrisville Trust co. Again Lead procession again the american legion have prone Over the last evening the hip show a Joy time a Given for the Benefit of the Robert w. Bracken i Ost no. 382, went Over in great shape and a Nice sized sum was realized for the use of the Post and this was due to the untiring efforts or the committee in charge and their fellow members of the Post. A Joy time Given by the a Burnt Cocks proved a diversion for the they will control Republican state Lllan remembered161�?T Casl Enty five people were More than Well tallied in their several parts and the ease which they displayed in indications Point to his joining hands with Knox Mellon and Oliver Sproul and Crow still dominate organization no matter what the Defeated ones do shouted he has senator Treasury part Ner of Pitts a week ago that senator Alliance with a any port in a storm a applies to politicians As Well As sea faring men and now that Joseph r. Grundy has been whipped by Sproul and Crow and apparently deserted by Penrose it is being whispered Yea from the House tops that formed an Alliance with Knox and Secretary of the Mellon in addition to his ship with George s. Oliver Burgh who was cast into the legislative discard along with Grundy at that memorable session of the legislature in Harrisburg monday. It is not strange Knox would seek an the Grundy-01 Ivet forces As the controlling forces of the state Republican organization Are Sproul Crow and their lieutenants and they have another candidate who they intend to Send to Washington to succeed Knox and that candidate is no less a personage than senator Crow himself. Looks As if everyone of the rank and file of the old guard Are going to be made to eat Crow despite the powerful fight Grundy has made against the state chairman. Which Side of the Fence does pen Iose intend to play on this question is uppermost in the minds of the Many who for years have followed the ramifications of political strife in Pennsylvania. The Willy Leader has not committed himself nor will he just yet. The fact that several of his henchmen in the legislature voted along with the Grundy crowd on various measures has been taken by a few to indicate that the a mighty one leans toward the a a Bossy of the manufacturers. There is no real reason for this As it Lias been openly stated that Trainer. Edmonds and Spencer voted on measures favored by Grundy with the forces of the latter rather than align themselves with the henchmen of the Cinningham Vare Combine who supported the opposition. This latest coalition is rather a Peculiar one three of the members of the Quartetti Are from the Western part of the state and two at least cannot be said to be politicians in the strictest sense of a he word. Senator Knox has never been a politicians he has always been averse to handing out patronage has never seemed to like the idea of begging for jobs for henchmen and As a consequence he has never had any henchmen. For years All the National patronage in this state has been doled out by Penrose and As a consequence he is the one who has the following senator Knox has positively no personal following whatever. U. S. Treasurer Mellon is a mighty Man in financial circles but has never mingled in politics from the standpoint of the Man on Hie firing line. The third member of the Western representatives of the supposed Combine is a politician pure and simple a be has held state office and has mingled in the activities in Allegheny county for years a he like the local number of the a big four or. Grundy owns a number of newspapers. Of course the weak voiced organs of Grundy in this county cannot be compared with the mighty powerful chronicle Telegraph and Gazette times of Pittsburgh owned by Oliver but comparing the numerical strength of the two sections it is a question whether Oliver a mighty organs Are taken any More seriously when they discuss a political question than Are the several Grundy papers in Bucks and the other subsidized sheets who Are waiting for crumbs of political advertising to fall their Way. Subsidized newspapers have no standing in any Community Large or Small the strength to be gathered Oliver a papers is nil. Penrose has for years been an organization Many Sproul and Crow Lead the organization forces if Penrose Sticks to his policy there will be mighty Bard travelling in store for the new coalition even though they can command the millions of Knox Grundy and Oliver. Stamp of _ a a go ing through their various numbers formations and assembles gave to the entire performance a professional finish. The singing of the Quartetti in their numerous selections were Well Recei de by the audience who were out seemingly to be entertained and they encouraged the performers to redoubled efforts by their generous applause of Wrell rendered numbers. From the Rise of the curtain on the first act the action of which had to do with a the big show on the outside a or in other words the actions on the outside of a big circus to the closing chorus of the finale it can he truthfully stated that there was not a Dull moment in the entire evening s entertainment. As the crowd from the Well filled House wended their Way toward the exits nothing but words of Praise for the performers and the boys who brought them Here were expressed. Act ii. The a shall of Gold in the Palace of mirth a was very cleverly conceived and portrayed and reflected great credit on the director c. Gaunt Holmes and his Collaborator j. Arthur Lowden. They in list have allowed their imaginations to run riot in the Conception of the entire act and the finesse with which the several numbers were staged Stamps these two gentlemen As past masters in the Art of stage Craft. The Impromptu minstrel show which followed Wras a Clever hit of Burnt by the Burnt corks. The interlocutor knew his business and the end men evidently had been coached on the conditions in and around Bristol for they were armed with a Bevy of quits that hit some of the leading citizens of this old Burg just about right. The grand finale a Columbia s court of Honor a was a thing of Beauty. The impersonation of famous americans was portrayed in a most finished manner. Any one who Sal during this scene without feeling their blood run riot As the patriotic airs played accompanied by the action on tile stage coulis not he Hie True blooded americans they seemed to be. The rendition of the music of accompaniment As Well As a number of orchestra selections of High Merit rendered by the Burnt corks own orchestra stamped this Branch of the organization As on a Par with their fellow performers of the stage. It is Good to be Able to write such a glowing account of the entertainment Given by the boys who went Over there for the Benefit of their Post named after a Little hero who never returned the citizens of Bristol showed their appreciation of what these boys did for their country s cause by turning out in droves to help their cause along. It was All Good and the sum realized will make it easier for these Young heroes and some of them Are not quite so Young As others to keep up Tho work of their organization and perpetuate the memory of those who Are gone hut who will never be forgotten As Long As their comrades remain to keep their memory Green.

The editor of the Independent was present at the luncheon of the kiwanis club of Trenton wednesday hut this fact is not what inspired this article a or. Henry a. Cotton head of the state Hospital for the insane of new Jersey addressed the members and his talk on insanity and the Progress that has been made by the medical fraternity in combating this dreaded afflictions was most interesting. Now for the Point of the Story this pal t of it w ill be cheerful for the members of the w. C. T. In and others who think that prohibition is a step in the righty direction for this nation or. Cotton said that one of the causes of insanity was alcoholism and that before prohibition became effective 21 per cent. Of the patients admitted to the state Hospital in Trenton could attribute their condition directly to the effects of alcoholism since the enactment of the 18th amendment to the Constitution this average has dropped to file per cent. So much for the Joy of the Prohias. Here is where the anti Prohias Shine or. Cotton also stated that while this was Hue in Jersey it was not the Case Iii Large cities and he specifically mentioned new York and Chicago where he claimed that the average insanity brought on by alcoholism instead of decreasing has increased quite materially since prohibition has been the style. He qualified his latter statement by blaming the Quality of the Alcho Holic drinks that were served sumptuously As being greatly to blame for the increase.

Now that the traffic running through Bristol will be greatly increased by the temporary closing of the Lincoln Highway route for repairs it has been proposed to make some of the streets of this town one Way thoroughfares. Among the streets that have been mentioned is Beaver Street at the Point where Choice the a death trap crosses the canal. Fine Way for the town authorities to shirk a responsibility by closing to one Way traffic the most frequently used Cross town Street in the Borough. Fine Way to a Duck the issues which sooner or later will be forced Home to them by the voters at the polls. If plans that were promised had been carried out if Petty politics had been put in the background this thoroughfare would now have been a wide Boulevard capable of taking care of any amount of traffic that it might be called upon to carry in Tho course of All the years to come. What is the use of having Power if you done to use it seems to be the attitude assumed by the duly elected and personally selected town officials and instead of removing a menace they simply make it i Conven a sent for their fellow townsmen to travel Back and Forth from the station and Post office. They evidently i care Little whether a Man has to travel a mile or less out of his Way i or not. J it has been even suggested through the personal medium of the a Powers that arc a that the old that Day forge Bridge or a death trap a which is a far More fitting name for this Structure be closed. No suggestion of bringing in some sort of report from the jury of View no suggestion of giving the property owners some of whom have moved Back their building line and the others who refuse to do so until they Are assured of being paid full Price for the damages that May be done their holdings their just due. No indeed this method would be contrary to All procedure in Bristol and Bucks county. The widening of this thoroughfare which would mean that it would be a Safe Point of passage would necessitate that some of the wild promises made in thai private car Back of the old Pennsylvania station would have to be lived up to and living up to promises that Cost an individual or a group of individuals considerable Money is not to be heard of. That the a personal Organ a Bas at least admitted that the a death trap is a menace is a step in the right directions they have gone on record and this would indicate that the controlling Genius of most of Bucks at a a frat dance Wright s service sales Force Selling cars Community card party next monday evening Bristol enchants visitor May move Here w.

There were about three thousand in attendance and the music was furnished by the famous orchestras of Hertzberg and Lanin. The Broadway entertainers furnished jazz music and Between the dances entertainers from shows playing Iii Philadelphia did bits. J j10 county a newspapers must have been the cognizant of the fact that they were going on record and this gives the Downtrodden citizen at Large of Bristol an additional leg to stand on. The attitude of ignoring the Comfort of the citizens at Large in Bristol will have to be changed by the local political ring who have ruled Here for so Long either it will be changed or the people will change the rulers and this would be a terrible catastrophe. Who could be found who would Rule so Well for their own selfish ends As those now ruling who could be found who would be Able to control so Many votes by might of Money Power and control of the banking situation in the town who these questions might be asked by the present ring with their eyes rolled heavenward in a hypocritical expression but these questions will be answered by the people themselves in the primaries and later at the coming elections for the people now have a medium out their wrongs and medium that is not that cannot be sub that will shout oppressions a controlled and std Zed.
