Bristol people should not lose sight of the fact that a town can be no Bigg r than the officials chosen to govern to.

Witnesses were so taken j by Surprise that none of them of j served the bandits licence number although fairly accurate descriptions of the men were obtained which led to the detention of Kendig a friends. The Only other clues to the Kendig murder was the car that up away from the police on the Road where his body was found on the same j night.

On to Girard College of i the summer with his min. Margaret Siddons of Var Street. Mrs. Ii a Quail Terneson who has a of tag Iii sea Side was in Bristol ast week for a three Days visit. The desp rate condition of the local Grundy political organization is very clearly revealed by the Way in which they have Ami Are con i ducting their Campaign of deception and misrepresentation. Hacked j by the unlimited finances of or. Grundy a Stool Pigeon a Campaign committee is represented As giving certain facts to Bristol people. Any intelligent person knows that such comparative statements Are worthless Localise of the ease with which favourable figures can to taken and unfavourable ones omitted Anil also because of the varying con list ions in these towns. What Justice is there in comparisons of water production costs in Bristol where we just take it from the River and other communities which have to Drill sex pens vie Wells Etc this Campaign committee which poses As a Loose Leaf encyclopedia says Little about the water rates which ought to by lowered if it costs no Little to prov Iii water. Nor does this wonderful information Bureau say anything about the amounts of Clorine Alum etc., Iii the water of other communities As compared with Bristol. The Validity of All the data set Forth is entirely Dost toyed by the fact that Only a Morgan i a nation a followers Are permitted Acci is to Bristol data while even this is legally elected to examine the Borough books Are denied Access to them. If these articles Are really written by their supposed authors what right has or. Dodds or. Scott etc., to examine records while or. Black legally elected by the people As Borough auditor is denied Access to them. There May be nothing wrong with the books but if not Why is a the organization so afraid to have anyone but a a organization followers see them and especially Why go to such lengths As to deny a legally elected Borough officer the right to exercise tin duties of his office so Long As the Grundy organization continues this illegal censorship of All Borough records any fair mind person can accept As reliable any selected figures they publish As lie last gasps of a forlorn hop. Such arrays of figures Are Only the death rattle of a lost cause. The desperate state of the Grundy Campaign is further revealed by the fact that they have Hail to import some Philadelphia politicians a guide them Over the rocks threatening their political destruction. Lacking capable local leadership they sent the s. O. S. Call to Philadelphia for a Cap Pye Edwards and others to come to their Aid. They Are already Here on the Job. We would warn or. Grundy and his imported politicians that Bristol citizens will not tolerate any of Ting Liest Ion ahle political tricks that Are reported to be under Way. The hop less nature of the Grundy Campaign is also shown by the Way in which they have grabbed at every Straw like a drowning Man. They have claimed credit for everything Worth while in Bristol. Without them there would have been no sewage disposal Plant so the courier of August 18th would have us believe although every intelligent person knows it was a state Law which compelled the Borough to cease dumping its sewage into the River. Every resilient of Bristol ought to get that Issue of the courier August 18th and read its editorial and if their blood does no to boil Over the slanderous statements concerning Bristol a past. There is something wrong with them. Read the paragraph which reads like this a Aback Yards were reeking cesspools w Home at filth propagated the germs of every known disease an set them broadcast through the Community to cause epidemic after epidemic of deadly How can any truth Loving Bri Tolian vol for men w Host top to such slanderous statements about their parents in order to get credit for themselves. Its bail enough for the Grundy organization to claim credit for something they were not responsible for but to so maliciously slander Bristol people of 20 years ago is positively unpardonable. Tilts however is Only Iii keeping with other vain efforts to build up a Quot lock or Community credit for political purposes. Their despicable Effort to a use the it Cal american legion Post for political purposes is deeply resented by Many legion men who rightly desire to keep their organization non partisan and non sectarian. We would remind or. Grundy that the responsible cause of the successful legion drive for disabled soldiers was Hie hard work of legion members Ami the recognized generosity of Bristol people and not the grandstand play s of or. Anderson or any other Grundy official. We would also remind or. Grundy that the efficiency of the local tire department is due to the hard work of certain Loyal firemen and not to the efforts of or. Anderson or any other individual Grundy candidate As such. And so it is with Otlis a claims of or. Grundy Fot his candidates. All that is Worth while in Community Progress and Endeavor is not due to or. Grundy a candidates As the courier would have us believe. 3uch claims Are Ped Culous on their face. The hypocrisy of Grundy organizations attitude is made Plain by their continued assertions that the fair name of Bristol has been redeemed by this wonderful set of men bringing the Borough to the place where it pays its own Way yet according to the ii own statements in the courier $66,850 h3 actually been appropriated see courier 5-4-25 while the be trough rate of 9.35 Mills on the new ass ment will Pisi Nee Only $56,100 $65,450 less remits fees delinquent Quot. Etc. In other words they themselves have actually appropriated $10,750 More than the new hate will provide the inefficiency of the Grundy candidates is evidenced by their providing $12,000 More income for the county Ani $10,500 less than last year for the Borough after paying the three valuation experts $3000 to make the assessments such that More Revenue might be prot video tile Borough. Can you imagine Deal tenders Effic i it men getting where they tried to not Only that they the ii Lack of Borough loyalty in providing $12,000 More for county and $10,500 Les for Borough us by the amazing statement that just he cause Bristol has 12vi i1 of the Bounty population it ought to 12 up r cent of the county tax. W by Force the poor win King Mei of Bristol Xiv till their Large families to a per capita share of county tax with. For instance the Rich of i Langhorne Hasni to the Grundy organization any sense of Justice or fair play at All one of the mom ridiculous statements of a1 perhaps was the Quot one in the courier of August 31st, where or. Grundy poses As being Iii fax or of municipal ownership of Public utilities. When has or. Grundy turned socialist of it is Tim As the courier states that water can in provided Nuder municipal ownership for one half of what it would Cut to under private ownership Why not have tile Gas Ami electricity provided likewise Why not provide Coal groceries clothing and even Wool yarns Iii the same Way. We would advise the Philadelphia suburban to turn Over their Plant to this efficient group of Borough officials at once. We wonder whether or. Grundy really believes what he is publishing How can this attitude be harmonized with his past ferocious attacks on All government owned utilities every Railroad Man knows ills attitude on government ownership of railroads. We doubt whether any of his pals Iii the Pennsylvania manufacturers association will take such statements seriously. If they in. The thread which is now holding or. Grundy Iii official pm Dion there will be Cut forthwith. How harmonize these statement. With or. Grundy a unwarranted attacks on or. Smoyer As being Akin to Follette in the courier of August 17th? 4 Isnit it tragic dear readers to see this one time autocratic Grundy organization grabbing at straws like drowning men and chasing mirages like those lost in the desert seeks nomination to introduce Bill to improve conditions in creeks and Rivers All Over state backed by sportsmen Thomas s.
