Iowa school Bond Issue fight on tonight propaganda being circulated that they Are running on Independent ticket is not True beat John Smoyer at any Cost with the Prospect of a hard Wintel and the added likelihood of very Little work which will mean Little Money for the poorer people of the town the question As to the Price of Coal and the chances for Cir against its being plentiful will he a pertinent one for the Many in Bristol suffering undoubtedly there will be if the Barons of Industry who Rule this towns destiny will not assist in providing employment for the hundreds who Are denied the Opportunity of getting it from other sources As Industry has been Ever advised against locating Iii Bristol. The local Coal dealers insist i hat the Price of Coal will lie higher As the season advances and yet there is no reason Why this condition should exist unless it is that labor is producing less than in former years and being paid far More for their work. In quoting from a wards journal one of the oldest Coal periodicals in the country they having published a paper since 1865, they state a the forthcoming Issue of Anthracite v ill contain the following a while the mine workers earnings ate on an average of 138 per Cut. Above the level of 11113, the amount of Coal produced by each Man has declined. A a company in the Wyoming Field now employs 5,006 men and obtains the same number of tons of Coal As it produced three Yea is ago with 4,Toto men the above will give a slight idea of one of the reasons for the Cost of Coal which is one commodity that does not seem Likely to reach its Normal level. The remark that Coal has never been As High As it is at present heard on every Side is not exactly True in 1865 the records state that Coal sold at w wholesale in Boston at from $ s. 7 5 to 117.ou per ton. In 1866 Coal sold at wholesale Iii new York from 8.50 to $13 dollars per ton it might be interesting for Many to know that the first Coal to be mined in this country and used for fuel was Iii 1768 in the Wyoming Valley and the first Man to Burn it was Obadiah Gore. The criticism that local dealers by Iii the continuing High unfair the berating operators which has w. K. Towers superintendent of j the transportation and housing Dij vision of the ii. S. Government. Slated to an Independent representative in his office in Philadelphia yesterday of . That there is in change in the housing situation Iii Harriman at this time. He stated j posit Ive i y that his office had received no Ltd Theta notice of the intentions of the shipping Board in the matter of handling heating problem and that the whole affair is still in a status quo a us far As he knows. Acting Tow site manager Goheen is being besieged by anxious tenants who wish to know whether they will he forced to move or not. He is confronted with statements from these people that they will be Strung along until the cold weather starts and then will probably be informed by the government that their notice has Long since expired and they must vacate. No news is Good news a and the fact that the government is taking such a Long time to act on the petitions Foi w added to Tho Board would indicate to tin writer that they Are endeavouring to ferret out a Way to get Over la difficulty presented without forcing any unnecessary suffering on their ten naut s. There is a plan that is talked of in unofficial circles that nut a by adopted if it is practical that is to run just one boiler in the Large heating Plant heat just one Section of the i own Ami have the tenants All move into this Section. This of course is Only hear say and it will have to be taken for what it is Worth. The fact that or. Towers invited the Independent to Call on him at any time for information and that he stated that if to did not hear something definite from Washington by next tuesday he himself would make a trip to the capital in an attempt to hurry matters would seem to dispel the Rumor that he has resigned or is about to resign his position is the order that has been issued a a vote for Smoyer is a vote for Independent says a a Peter 8.000 chiropractors in Mammoth Street Parade dissenters on $40,000 school loan heard at Harriman majority favor the Inid movement their names will appear on Republican ballot is heaped on consumer for Price of Coal of the mine been a favorite Mill Street Maize of Telegraph poles outdoor and indoor sport for several years would also seem of in unfair if the reports published by the United states geological suit a and other reliable sources of information throughout the country Are to be depended upon absolutely the fundamental reason for the continuing High Price Aud the possible holding up of that puce to its present level can be directly attributed to the output and the natural demand which has been below Normal for months Back. The fir ii upward turn Oil the de mend of a i Coal in the Market was noted Din lug the week of August 13th. For eight weeks previous i this data the Market was absolutely read. I. Is expected by Trade experts that kids augurs Well for a constantly increasing Trade during the entire Winter months. With this it Ade increase there May lie some adjustment possible with Lite minora that will bring the actual producing Cost of Coal Down and As soon As fills is Brough about ii concerted Effort on the part of governmental of continued on Page five Borough authorities May intend to Fence in sidewalk with massive line of poles elec. Power Plant for the Island work to Start soon on this project a new concessions need Power and Light work on the general improvements on Burlington Island will he commenced within the next two weeks. The first work Ai tempted w in be the erection of the new Scenic railway and fhe installing of the electric Power Plant that is to be put Iii operation at a Cost of $10,000. This latter feature of the improvements is for the purpose of lighting the Bland properly and also to furnish Power for the Many devices that will be found at the Park next year. This Plant will he equipped with Oil burning engines. Application has been received Fey the management of the Park for a Concession for an Airship device. The company seeking the ease is Ihen same As the one operating the ships at Woodlawn Park just outside of Trenton and from present indications it is Only a matter of a few Days before the deeds for the same will be signed and delivered. With Many novel concessions still to be heard front it is a certainty that another season will and the Island a place of scintillating life and Beauty. Mill Street will son look like a for rest of the St retd and Highway committee continue to give out indiscriminate permission to put up Many More Telegraph and Telephone poles. Standing at the Corner of Mill and Radcliffe Street looking Westward one is confronted with a Maize of poles of \ Ai Ying length silhouetted on the Skyline. From the Corner of Otter and Balli to Mill and Pond Street there arc thirty nine poles enough seemingly to hold All the wins thai run along the entire thoroughfare yet More Pules Are being erected each Day. Home folks Are a of the opinion that the old poles along these main thoroughfares. Are the Only ones that will by allowed to remain. The Independent expresses the wish that this is the Case no possibility of finding anything out Frow the Borough officials on the subject Tor any of them who know if they knew anything of what is going on in their departments shun the editor of this paper and care not to pass words with him for the Only apparent reason that he has had the temerity to dare to criticize their official actions. One instance where a generous collection of poles have been distributed is before the property of Wrights garage. Directly on the Corner of Bath streets and Otter on both sides cd the two Cross walks Are some poles four poles within a radius of Twenty seven feet. A no use of painting your building and putting tip signs for display if poles Are to be erected to entirely hide the building from the View of passersby a says or. Wright. Probably following their avowed intention to kill the Mill Street Section As the principal business thoroughfare of the town it is the intention of the Powers in the town to have a Fence of poles built on the Edge of the sidewalks to entirely obliterate the business houses along their Way. One citizen says the poles Are being erected for safety of pedestrians cars humping along the awful streets will be less Likely to strike persons on sidewalks. A anything to brat John of smiler a the foregoing order a. Linen issued front the throne room of the local Republican organization. And oven a de Al old Uncle Pete a who realizes the undercurrent of sentiment in favor of John is going about town handshaking and ingratiating himself with the voters of the first Ward whispering warnings to them to remain Loyal and remember to cast their vote for a a gang candidates on election Day. The irrepressible vote gatherer is doing More campaigning this year than he Lins done in a Ward Clee lion Iii two decades and everywhere he goes he drops the salient warning that Smoyer must be Defeated. The a thee v Ami a a thous scattered about by this Willy politician Are numberless. Hut it is a question As to whether even he really believes that his missionary Wink will have any effect to Stem the tide of Public sentiment Iii favor Cit the first Ward plumber. A Smoyer is a competent is the expression of the a smiling Peter a As he pats his constituents on the backs a the is an All right Chap. But a vote for him is a Vole for the Independent and that will not do in was Ever anything More ridiculous than this latter assertion of the Man who makes few mistakes in a political Campaign picture it a Man who has held every office that paid big Money within the gift of the appointing Powers of the county campaigning against a candidate on the Grot Ltd that a vote for him will be a Vole for this paper. T he a Peerless Leader of Bristol a would have spoken More truthfully had lie stated a a vote for Smoyer is a vote against Bossis and a vote for the people Quot no danger of a the of Fox telling the voters anything like that though As his Job is to get the votes no matter what the argument adva need for the purpose May he. Must be rather a bitter Pill for the leaders of the organization to Swallow this being forced to go out and beg and cajole voters to remain faithful after so Many years of having everything their own Way it must indeed be pm harassing for a venerable gentleman but or. Minster to be forced Lei buttonhole every Tom. Dick and Harry in his Ward with the request that they remain faithful to the a a gang it must indeed be hard and the Independent regrets tilt necessity of forcing these self appointed rulers to disco Mode t Hemseth is.

Was first an Notine a s a lieu i Art film Start and yet in even Mich a Short time the pervasive personality of this Clever com Dienne has carried her to High places in her chosen profession. Youthful vivacity and a flair of comedy interpretation have been the Daniels assets and perhaps. He has never been seen to better advantage than in a the March Hare a an Elmer Harris play which will be presented this evening at the Forrest theatre for the but of it of the Bristol band. This ambitious band of Twenty two players under the direction of Mahlon Vandegrift have Bien practising for months and this evening will give a concert at both of the shows to demonstrate their ability. Nothing hosts a town so much As a Well taint i and Well dressed band. The Money realized from tonight a performance n ill a it toward a uniform fund.

There Isnit a single Idle minute in this fast moving offering. And v. Hen she arrives at her aunts fun galore is on tap when the Young heiress finds an imposter posing As miss Liz both Ann Palmer with the intention to profit through the connection. I to Star role is irresistibly Youthful Aud will undoubtedly find wide favor among the rapidly growing Daniels clientele. The Star is supplied in the picture by an exceptional cast. Playing the leading male role is no less a film personage than Harry Myers whose great Success Iii a a Connecticut Yankee in King Arthurs court still continues to be an outstanding feature of current photo dramatic history. As a a Todd Rollins in this production or. Myers shows the same Harrisburg the local Smard attempted self to give them All Tomt they desired. The plans for the it it ent Structure Are All that could be asked for in a Community and would be a credit to any Village. All improvements must have opposition however and As was expected a minority raised a Hue and cry that the addition to the school tax would to metre than the people could stand and those who have attempted to minimize the efforts of the school Board could not have been fully informed on this matter for avoiding to present figures no increased taxation will result. The ground has been purchased contract Given and All that is now needed is the word to Start work. This cannot he delayed if the children Are to use this building for the Winter and avoid the Long ride to Harriman that caused so much controversy last year. And now comes the dissenting voice of the contractor who is impatiently waiting word on the out crime. If is in danger of loosing some of his sub contracts and would like to see some action other than argument. Iii the meantime the fight goes merrily on and the foes meet on the Field of conflict tonight one trying to build and better the zither trying to tear flown that which has already been accomplished. The outcome will soon be known but should the opposition win Croydon will have lost its greatest improvement Fea tire. The pm Ople Are awaiting the outcome fully confident that the school Board will not be influenced by a Small minority and that tomorrow Wili Dawn with the score nine nothing in their favor and the Croydon school an accomplished fact. There Are a number of folks in Bristol who Are Labouring under the delusion that John Hardy candidate for tax collector and John Smoyer candidate for councilman in the first Ward Are making the run for office on an Independent ticket. This is erroneous As both. Of these gentlemen Are candidates on the Republican ticket and their names will be found enrolled on the primary ballots of the g. O. P. In the fire houses and various places where men congregate this subject has cause a great Many Friendly arguments some men assert that if Hardy and Smoyer were voted for at the primaries it would prevent a he person casting the vote to put in a ballot at the next primary in a Republican boxy this argument is settled by the statement in the first paragraph but to emphasize it Here it is again Hardy and Smoyer Are running on the Republican ticket and any person wishing to cast a ballot for two men not bearing the personal stamp of approval of the a Baron of Bucks a will cast a vote for these two Young men who Are placing themselves in the hands of their fellow citizens rather than to have placed themselves under the Banner of the gang who dominate this Borough. It is the inherited privilege of every native born american or of every american citizen to place him in nomination for any office within the gift of the people. This statement will rather Surprise some folks in Bristol who for decades have had their candidates chosen for them and presented to them on an already prepared tickets it is a fact however and the Hest possible manner in which to rebuke the Power who has Ever assumed to place the political slates in the Field is to return these two candidates a Winner and Force on the choosers who have constituted themselves arbiters of the destinies of Bristol the Choice of the people. If chosen these men will be in every sense the candidates of the people they will hold themselves in continued on Page five storms fury hit one end of town while the people of lower Otter Street declare there was no rain no Hail or storm the people of Penns Manor Are counting the damage especially to Glass enclosed structures.
