Williamsport Review Republican (Newspaper) - June 01, 1916, Williamsport, IndianaNen a of Ute Ilythe review rep Bucan. Devoted to the interests of Williamsport and Warren county new series vol. Ii. Williamsport Warren county Indiana thursday june 1, 1916, number 34 Oon a lose Sigut of a the is essential to the Beauty and Comfort of our citizens. Circuit cd Uri closed saturday the judge cleared the docket of cases for this term. Just because we were crowded the Warren circuit court closed with other Reading matter last last saturday at noon and the judge week and omitted to say anything with his court reporter Robert about the Park question Don t think i Swan returned to their Home in for a moment that the review re Fowler. Publican has Given up the Forenoon was confined not a bit of it. This paper believes to finishing up the Small cases where in that old adage that constant the attorneys appeared for their hammering will eventually Jar the clients and witnesses were not Nec Barrier Down and we will be Able at Essary. There was a divorce Case some near Date to invite the world scheduled for the morning session to Williamsport to Beautiful Park and All Indiana. This paper is not alone in this belief it has friends who also Are working along lines that will bring after a time the desired results. Part of the work has been a com visit the most but the parties interested failed to play ground in appear and it will be continued until the next term or possibly settled out of court provided the parties in the suit decide not to air their Domestic trouble before the Public. A few claim Bills were heard and allowed. The lawyer s not present township trustees 6 is Date for holding sessions of advisory boards. Polished and As soon As the finishing were called but none of them had touches can be put on then the anything urgent to present to the movement will be put in operation judge. One or two had cases that and All our people will take hold of were continued after the judge the work and be glad of the Opportunity. Once we get this Park and our peso e begin to realize its comforts its Beauty and its great Benefit to the Community they will wonder How they have got along All these years without it. If the town is to grow and improve if we Are to have could have been crowded and enjoy the Many advantages that a Eek s session but it takes heard the statements after which he closed the docket lighted a Cigar and returned to the prosecutor s office to await the coming of the noon hour. Generally speaking this has been a very tame session of court and had All the business been amassed it into one time to other towns some smaller than Williamsport we must Manifest an interest we must sacrifice and we must Lay off our Coats and go to it with a vim that accomplishes things. Sulking in the tent never did get anywhere or anything. Bizien by a horse Emi Nehrig has an unusual experience while shoeing a Young horse get witnesses time to hear Long arguments and time for each attorney to prepare his Legal papers hence it has to run its full length of time As prescribed by Law. But we said it was tame. So it Vas. There was no cases that aroused the curiosity of the it Iblis i and caused the court room to be crowded and packed to its fullest Ca-1 parity. People Are getting better morally and instead of going to i court about every Little Trival mat ter or some imaginary injury they one Day the latter part of last get together outside the court room week Emil Nehrig a Hile shoeing a and talk the matter Over in a Friend Young horse was bitten quite severe in Way and nine cases out of ten by in the Back which for a Little adjust their differences very Satis time almost detained Emil from Facto Rily without the Aid of an at work. 1 Torney or the advice of his Honor the horse which was Young and judge Berry had not been shod very often was a it. _ Little wild and hard to handle re Oaks crop injured by White top pest. Fused to stand and in various other ways gave Emil no Little amount of Piej a improperly prepared Are in a trouble. Finally Emil grew tired of go patting and coaxing and put a twitch on the animal s no and gave the animal to Samuel Cole to handle. This had an effect of Qtnet-1 Ping the animal Down for a Short pm a oversight Beaune but when or. Cole relaxed Nis amount of hold on the twitch the horse made c. H. Hendren state examiner has written a letter to each of the township trustees of the state in which they Are reminded of the Law that requires a meeting of the advisory Board in each township on the first tuesday in june at which time the Road Levy is to be made. The letter also suggests that this would be the proper time though not required by Law to receive bids for the school and Road supplies that will be needed during the coming year. In this Way the advisory boards would be compelled to meet but once and this is Given As one of the reasons Why bids for supplies should be received on june 6. Another reason Given is that if bids for supplies Are received in every township of the state on the same Day it will prevent unscrupulous dealers from attending As Many lettings As they a Ould if different dates were fixed. This would also give dealers ample time to fill contracts before supplies Are needed in september. If after making out a list of supplies that will be needed the trustee finds that the expenditures in any one class do not exceed $500 it is sufficient to give notice of the time of letting by posting of notices for three weeks in five of the most Public places in the township and at or near the door of each Post office of the township. If an expenditure in excess of $500 for any one class of supplies is found to be necessary then besides the posting an advertisement must be inserted in two newspapers of the county representing the two leading political parties. The Law requires that a trustee must advertise for bids on everything he buys except fuel and periodicals. Some of the trustees of the state Are known to be making out a list of supplies that will be needed in their respective townships and will advertise for bids to be received on the Day recommended by or. Hendren june 6. It is Likely that All or nearly All the trustees will do this. It is not always easy at this Early Date to make an estimate of everything that will be needed in the schools during the coming year and for that reason some trustees May postpone this matter until later in the coming at u. B. People have an old fashion Basket dinner. Along late last fall the u. B. People of Independence completed the remodelling of their splendid new Church and dedicated it to the service of the lord and since that time they have never made any Effort to have anything special aside from their revival and regular meetings until last sunday they had what was known As a Church Home coming. Everybody in the neighbourhood was there. They came from far and near. They had besides their own pastor. Rev. Dwyer and several other ministers of note and prominence who spoke to the big crowd in attendance. At the noon hour the spread was grand. It is said that it resembled one big family. Everybody was Happy and everybody enjoyed the feast. No one was barred and from the smallest to the largest was made to feel that they were heartily Welcome. It was one of those kind of meetings that Are soul inspiring one that makes you feel that the world is not so cold and dreary after All. The meeting was an All Day affair and extended Well into the night and up to the last minute the interest never relaxed one moment but with some that is to say the greater number of the assemblage the meeting came to a close All too soon. The joke is on the started to Urbana iii., but they missed the Bethel god quot he is glad the Dent was no worse. Acci a grab for Emil s Back who was Bent Down working with a front foot.

Butler pastor. John Horn who resides in this City dropped into our office saturday morning and renewed his subscription until May 16, 1917. John is Only one out of the Many hundreds of our readers who express themselves As not being Able to keep House without they have the to read once each week. It has become generally known that the Wabash Railroad company will not build an outright new depot for Williamsport but they have de the cited to remodel the old one. The superintendent of maintenance of ways was in our City a few Days ago and took the measurements of the old building and is having quot Blue prints quot made for the plan of construction. The remodeler building will contain two waiting rooms a one for the ladies and one for the men with the ticket office immediately Between them. We Are also informed that new toilet rooms will be installed a better lighting system provided and that instead of an entire cinder walk it will be transformed into partially a Concrete walk. While the citizens of Williamsport and Warren county deeply deplore the fact that they can t get and have a new depot yet if the company fixes the old one up after the style in which they Are making plans it will be much better than the old one and will afford the ladies More Comfort than they have heretofore enjoyed. Wednesday morning of last week about 7 30, John Bethel of Attica a Well known old Veteran was struck by an Auto driven by Elmer e. Mets Ker on Mill Street near Pearlman s plac2, and dragged for some distance. Or. Bethel was crossing the Street on his Way to town and did not see the Auto which while not going very fast dragged him some Little distance and caused severe injuries from which he has been suffering greatly the doctor thinking there was some concussion of the brain. Or. Metsker formerly lived near Otterbein but had recently been staying in Attica and at Independence. Those who saw the Accident say the Auto was not going Over six or seven Miles an hour and stopped within ten feet. Jacky is Well known Here As he was a former citizen of Warren county and lived Many years at Independence. Being an old Soldier he often visited Williamsport and attended the meetings of Bryant Post. His friends Here Are hopeful that his recovery May be very s night to be observed last thursday morning mesdames Isaac Slauter h. H. Bertrand Milton Keister e. A. Biggs t. C. Powell and Frank Kelly All members of the Twenty one club started for Urbana 111., to enjoy a club meeting during the Day with mrs. J. B. Dennis. They got to Danville All right and the trouble began. They had a Little time to spare and you All know How women Are they put everything off until the last moment especially when they get Busy looking at laces and frills. This is what happened to them they missed the interurban car. Then they so we Are told made a grand Rush for the big four station and on arriving there also found that the train had gone. Say they were mad. Then they went Back to the interurban station and by their looks the conductor saw they were not in any humor to be joked and to keep on the Safe Side just stayed on his car. At once they got started the Blooming old car just crept along and stopped at every station and Cross roads and by the time they reached their destination their patience were about gone but they enjoyed their visit just the same even if they did miss the train and had to stay All night. This May not be just exactly the Way the whole thing took place but As the ladies have agreed among themselves not to give away the secret we can Only surmise. We do know that they got left and that there were several husbands who had to get their own breakfast last Friday m dance memorial services Sunda were observed at the presbyterian Church in this City. Pursuant to previous arrangements memorial Day was duly observed by song prayer and speech in the presbyterian Church last sunday Forenoon. The Church choir had prepared several special pieces of vocal music and the resident pastor Rev. Wells and m. E. Pastor Rev. Butler were present and each delivered a Short address to the soldiers and ladies g. A. R. Circle who were present. These talks were very interesting and Well taken As each paid a glowing tribute to the Union Soldier and to the ladies the wives Sisters and daughters of the soldiers who Are at present so actively engaged in keeping Green the memory of the Soldier now sleeping beneath the Sod Rev. P. T. Martin of the Christ Ain Church was the speaker of the Day and he too delivered a very fitting address for the occasion. He in a Way went Back to the Days when gloom Hung heavily Over these United states went with them through the conflicts camped with them visited them in the prison and lastly came Home with them Only to find that some of them never returned. He did not depict them As old Mien to Day but rather pictured them Young men a Hose hair was streaked with Grey yet ready and willing if the occasion should warrant to take up and Bear the Burden of their country at West you Are a member of the methodist Church and obey its program has been arranged for the occasion. It has been arranged by the Good people of the Christian Church of Independence to observe children s night on the 3rd sunday night in june at 7 30, to which the Public is invited. It is a Well known fact that the Independence Church has taken on new life. They Are going Forward and Are under the leadership of mrs. Vanduesen the pastor in charge doing a better work than has been done for Many years past in that Community. Very recently they observed quot Mother s Day quot in a special Way for which they had an excellent program and a splendid Sermon. The Church House was crowded to its very fullest capacity and there were Many who failed to gain admission. White and Pink carnations were Given to nearly every one present which were heartily appreciated turned Over the books. And had the effect of creating a bet miss Mae Lonberger of Roberts ter feeling among the people in the was in Attica Friday to meet mrs. Community for the Church. Harriet Pope of this place and the glad workers of this Church make final Transfer of the books will on saturday evening june 10th, and papers belonging to the office hold a social on the Church Lawn of department president of the la and it is hoped that everybody in Dies of the g. A. R. In Indiana. Mrs the neighbourhood will come out and Pope succeeds miss Lonberger in help these Good ladies in their that office. Worthy work. About two weeks ago this paper contained an article to the effect that the methodist general conference assembled at Saratoga n. Y., were considering the advisability of removing from their discipline the ban on dancing card playing and theatre going. After a Long discussion on the subject pro and con the matter came to a vote last Friday and 435 voted to have the discipline still retain these rules while 360 favored their removal. Looking at these things from a wordly View there is apparently no harm in these sports but it is often the harm that follows in their Wake that brings the condemnation. Youn people must have some recreation aside from going to Church sunday school attending prayer meeting and Reading the Bible. Yet we Are told if we follow the above with an earnestness to gain knowledge and do Good to our Fellowman the frivolities of the world will have no attraction to us. Perhaps so but All work and no play makes Jack a Dull boy. There must be a change there must be new scenes and we must give the Young people a Chance to rest their minds from a continuous routine of one and the same thing. The methodist people however Are to be commended and highly too for their Effort in trying to hold Down the Little things that creep into religious affairs that eventually would grow and possibly become harmful to the Church and its membership. It is these Little innocent j looking things that sometimes de i Zelop into big things that become As Black As night that after ruin character and sometimes bring sorrow and shame to a respectful Home. It is All Well enough no doubt that the Church keeps a ban on these Little things for sometimes if you give an Inch often times the Inch will be made to reach a mile. Support the Church in its Effort to do Good and the Community will be All the better for it. Mrs. V. P. Michaels who has for a week or More been visiting at the Home of Dan Bartley in Kramer was in the City monday morning in route to her Home in Peoria 111. She was accompanied by miss Edith Landon of Kramer who will visit her for a week or ten a Fine memorial address last sunday May 28. Hon. Ele Stansbury went to West Point last sunday where he delivered the memorial address to the old soldiers and ladies Circle of that place. He was accompanied by Seth Compton James Anderson and Ivan Brooks three of the old boys who enjoyed the trip across the country very much. The Church was filled to its fullest capacity and we Are told that there were Many who could not gain admission. Or. Stansbury in his usual easy manner delivered it is said one of the Best orations of the kind he has Ever made during his career As an orator. True he had a splendid subject but Back of this is the truism that or. Stansbury has an admiration for the old Soldier that is Akin to genuine love and when he gets with them in their work or up before them to talk All patriotism in his body is aroused and the Best he can say is in his own estimation Only a weak Effort the most he can do for them in a physical Way is not enough and he Only wishes that it was in his Power to do More. He is indeed and in truth a Friend of the Soldier and not Only of the Soldier but of the ladies Circle As Well and he is always ready always willing to go out and perform any duty that will Aid them in any Way in keeping fresh the memory the grand work they did in reuniting this us if anything happens up at your House Tell us.
