It matters not to us whether you buy a bond through the Press office, the Post Office, your broker or your banker, so long as you BUY A LIBERTY BOND The Board of Selectmen at its monthly meeting held on last Friday, by a vote of Albert J. Epstein and Robert Hawthorne, authorized the payment of one month's salary to Edward Bromage. This bill of Mr. Bromage was presented in 1911 and payment was refused by the selectmen because they considered that as long as he did not work for the town", he was not entitled to the money. The bill was presented td the selectmen in 1912 and was re fused; it was presented in 1913 and was refused; it was presented in 1914, 1915 and 1916 and was refused, and now, in 1917, two members of the present board vote to pay the bill , and the selectmen who had a knowledge of the existing conditions at the time the bill was first held up, were not consulted. The people of the community wonder why the selectmen paid the bill, but it is paid and it is the easiest way of ending a disagreeable matter. j Selectman Savage refused to put his name to the order because he did not think it was right for any one to receive money from the town who did not earn it. This was the stand lie took when he was chairman of the board a year ago and this is the stand Mr. Hawthorne took when he was with Mr. Savage a year ago. Mr. Cope who was chairman of the board a few years ago, when the bill was presented, consulted Mr. Browne who was selectman at the time that Mr. Bromage first presented the bill and upon looking over the papers and getting a full and complete knowledge of all of the facts, refused to pay the bill. For the same month that Mr. Bromage received his money and for which he did not do any work, Thomas Hayden acted as patrolman and the town paid him. On Nov Sth, 1911, Mr. Bromage made the following application for the appointment of Chief of Police: "Thompsonville, Conn., Nov. S, 1911, To (he Board of Selectmen of the Town of Enfield, Dear Sirs: I hereby make application for the appointment of Chief of Police for the Town of Enfield. (Signed) Edward Bromage." On the same day, the selectmen received another communication from Mr. Bromage which was as follows: "Thompsonville, Conn., Nov. 8, 1911, To the Board of Selectmen of the Town of Enfield, Dear Sirs: I hereby resign the office of Constable of the Town of Enfield to take effect when I am appointed to the office of Chief of Police for the Town of Enfield and when the said office is accepted by me. (Signed) Edward Bromage." Of course, in such a matter as this, the selectmen could not deal with it as delicately as Mr. Bromage did. They believed that they had the power to appoint and they believed, as the people of the community believed, that when the town passed a vote that a patrolman should not be a constable or hold another positioiiN which would take him away from his work, the will of tile people should be carried out. Everyone in town knew the facts at the time and the vote of the people was an expression as to how they felt. The town had some litigation over the matter and the selectmen in 1911 refused to pay the bill, not only upon the advice of local attorneys, but after a brief had been received from two law firms in Hartford.
