Abraham Cope was chosen chairman and Frank Rosenberger will continue to act as clerk. After the bills which were presented were ordered paid. Chairman Cope announced that he would consult former Judge Lincoln W. Morrison on legal matters during the coming year.

The first selectman has the right to seek advice from whom he pleases. Judge Morrison will render his bill at the end of the year in itemized form specifying the work he was called upon to do in the same manner as did Attorney Wm. J. Mulligan last year.

Editor Thompsonville Press: Dear Sir:—Will you accept a letter in criticism of the service which this division of the Hartford, and Springfield Street R. R. is at present receiving from the management. The old schedule that was In effect during the summer season was perfectly satisfactory, but since the new schedule went into use about a month ago the service has simply been unbearable. There has hardly been a car on time for over a week a*d yesterday especially the cars were anywhere from 15 minutes to half an hour late. The car which is supposed to get here at 6:40 nights with the working people seldom gets here before 7 o'clock and last night it was 7:25 when it reached here. Another cause for complaint is having the last car for ithis place leave Springfield at 10:50 p. m., instead of 11:35 p. m., as on the old schedule. There are quite a large number of people here who enjoy going to an evening performance at the theatre in Springfield but who can't go and expect to get home, unless they walk from Thompsonville, as there are very few shows which are over in time for the 10:50 car from the Court Square. Ithink the people on this division are deserving of more consideration at the hands of the management. We surely pay enough for the service we get, as the fare from Somers to the State line, a distance of 10 miles is 24 cents and it is only just that we ask for better service. Another thing worth mentioning is the poor road bed from here to Thompsonville. I believe it is positively dangerous in some places. I think it is time they were getting fair treatment from the trolley company. A Patron. Officers Elected and • Appointed :U ,. : Non-Attendance Found To Be the ' Principal Cause For Lack Of 1 ' .
