Freda s the school Hoard monday night took action in a very important matter relating to our schools which has been reported from several quarters As something of a nuisance. A communication was read from Frederick held asking that the pupils of tin third Ward be restrained from congregating on the station platform adjoining his property where they make themselves very objectionable by noise defacing the buildings Etc. It seems to he no secret that the pupils Are in the habit of carrying Chalk from the schools and marking fences and buildings in All parts of town which was regarded by the Hoard As ail reflection upon the schools several of the members thought that the practice of preventing the pupils from coming upon the school ground until the ringing of the hell was responsible for a great Deal of the mischief. The pupils leave Home at almost any hour and loiter about the streets until permitted to enter the grounds. I11 their efforts to kill time they Are Apt to get into mischief. A motion was made to permit pupils to Como onto the school ground at 8 o clock but no one cared to take the responsibility of seconding it and it was finally resolved to let the whole matter rest in the hands of a special committee consisting of messes. Keef or Fischer and Orth superintendent Gordy and the four principals of the Borough. Attention was called to the practice indulged in by the pupils of the first Ward of Laving the school grounds Aud pro menacing the streets even As far As Mill Street where they often Block the pavements and some of the Hoys even indulge in smoking. This matter likewise was referred to the special committee the Borough superintendent and the four principals. On motion Aaron rockafeller was elected As school director from the fourth Ward to succeed William Black whose seat was declared vacant by reason of non attendance. On motion it was decided that 12 new curtains he purchased for the third Ward grammar school. On motion it was ordered that 1000 letter head he printed for use of the Borough superintendent.

Murray 3.80 the mud slinging qualifications of certain Ward healers is being called into play a Little late in the Campaign hut against Fred a. Godcharles mud will not stick. His faultless life As a citizen his kindness of heart to his employees his genial manners and his recognition of the fact that a Money does not make the Man Superior is. So Patent to his friends and neighbors that the slime of dirty politics finds no lodgement against him. Baffled in this Way resort is now had o untruths Ami they Are scattered in reckless profusion the District Over. Even the false charges brought against him fail of their object and recoil to the Hurt of their authors. A visit from or. Godcharles soon dispels any doubt that might arise concerning his personality his methods Aud his intentions of being the Best Friend of labor Aud the truest Friend of the people Aud he conducts a Noble clean Campaign free from personalities and harmful vilification. But How is it with the Mau who lives in the a mansion on the Hill to make his selection he Calls to his Aid the politician of Overy Section Aud with Sisac qui Senco charges Are made with a wilful disregard of the truth such As would put to shame the Best efforts of a Munchausen and filled with the virus of a Serpent notably is this the Case with his chosen lieutenants. Such men Are peddling themselves and their weird stories Over the District in their several Peculiar ways with a degree of eagerness that be tokens tin ii love of dirty work while their master looks out Over a Beautiful expanse of country from his costly mansion on the Hill expecting to profit by the acts of the politicians he employs and the glee with which lie greets the performance of a particularly dirty trick shows lie is confident of the Power of his wealth. One of the latest acts is to prosecute a Man for libel for taking into his Confidence the Public and telling How he was kept poor while the candidate amassed the magnificent Fortune that is now his. More than All Tho prosecuted Man is an old Soldier one who hared his breast to bullets that the country might have a Unity of being. Any Soldier should resent this action against a Comrade and vote for Fred a. Godcharles. Berwick a. Oct. 24 1902. Or. Editor a have been a vote for More than Twenty four years and a Democrat so pronounced in my views that never before this Campaign have 1 been solicited to vote the ticket. This year the import unities to favor a certain candidate or. Dieker Man were so urgent that i surmised something was wrong with the Man or his methods and 1 determined to learn about him Ere casting my vote. Having friends in Milton who also vote the democratic ticket and in whom i have absolute Faith i wrote for All the particulars concerning his personality and 1 now announce that 1 do not favor his election. 1 learn from letters and personal interviews that lie is not so much a Democrat As he would like it to appear As he not Only knifed the democratic candidate for president or. Bryan both campaigns hut that lie was against the la in edited Rufus k. Polk for Congress. As a Democrat this absolves me a Good party Man from voting for him. The wage question which Lias been raised would also deter me from giving my support to or. Dickenman. While the sworn statements of Citi Zens of Good repute say that in con tended that 89 cents was ample for labor per Day which in now de Nies it is a matter of record that Many death of mrs. Rayer. Mrs. Mary Rayer for Many years a resident of pottsgrove who died at Watsontown on sunday was buried yest Nlay. She was about sixty years of a a the daughter of Jacob Ris Liel pottsgrove. She was Well known in Danville Aud Vicinity. J. Good Linn work d for 90 cents per Day under his management of the works and if then Ever was a voluntary in Crea it of wages on his part the records showing it Are lost. Being a labourer and a Friend of Good wages 1 could Only lament the fact that to head of a great corporation should he elevated to a place by the Aid of Union vote. I therefore announce that 1 shall take Especial Lasuro in giving my support to or. Godcharles who offers no rewards lie does not is what or claims to he entertains the highest regards for the Soldier Aud the soldiers sons and yields the Best Wagi unasked to the men who work for him and who loyally stand with him in his candidacy without Force or coercion. Neither does he i contrast to or. Dirt Man claim abroad that he is not interested in business. The records of the two men Are open to the world and we opine that nov. 1 will show that the p. Ople soldiers workmen Farmers and bus Uoss men All will support the Quot Peerless Godcharles. Berwick. Congressional candidate for Short term. If the talk of the Street among the voters is an indication and it usually is a Good barometer William k. Lord will receive tin largest local vote Ever Given to a candidate for any office in i my Carmel. Practically every citizen of or. Carmel is a Friend of lord Aud wifi work Aud vote for him. Each Man in the town is interested in his election and the placing of such High Honor Apay a the name of a townsman. Aji realize that his Home vote must to i i it to i assure Success to him in to represent in the National 1 a res a class of citizens that have Seldom had a Mouth piece in the How 0 representatives.

Never before in our history have two men relations with the la a her people have been so close Aud so satisfactory asked the support of the citizens to the county As the two men Are now asking to be made representatives in Congress. If voters generally Are interested in a Liat is termed Petty politics Aud that Only lord and Godcharles will about receive their party vote Aud nothing More hut if the people Are interested in just Laws and the advancement of civilization along Industrial lines party lines will to obliterated and lord and Godcharles will receive the vote of every Man who is in sympathy with advanced ideas in government. Both Are truly representatives of the interests of our Region and their opponents Are not. There is no Choice of candidates if we have our own Best interests in . Carmel nows.
