The voters of the Town of Enfield ft}. n°t pass upon the 'proposed iV?V adoption of the merit system, or «iv31 service for the police department at a special town meeting, which was to have been held soon, because of some question 'which has -arisen as to the authority, under the statute of Connecticut. The petitions circulated the past few days contain more than 700 names "Df voters who were in favor of a special town meeting to act upon the matter, but instead the whole question will now Ibe postponed until the annual town election in October, •when it is believed more voters will be present to express their opinion, than at a special town meeting. The statute enacted in 1911 toy •the Connecticut Legislature sets forth that the merit system may be .-adopted at an annual town election or at a special meeting called for that purpose. It was believed that the word "meeting", as used in the statute meant a town meeting, ibut legal opinion is that it refers to a special election, and rather than put the town to heavy expense and inconvenience that would .attend such a procedure, those fathering the project have decided to defer action until the annual town election. Under the merit system as outlined in the statute, the first selectman, as the highest executive officer ^of the town, will have the appointment 6f three police commissioners, one for two years, one for four years -and one for six years, and one commissioner to serve six years will be -appointed every two years thereafter— The Iboard of police commissioners can at no time have more than two memlbers of one political party in its membership, and those supporting the proposition predict that in its adoption the much practiced sport of playing political football with the police department in Enfield will ibe a thing of the past. There is a strong sentiment in town in favor of the adoption of the merit system for the police department, which will mean the taking of the department out of politics.

Hughes has been posing as a Deputy Collector in the Tennessee District and frequently collecting special taxes on jewelry, soda and other taxes that m'ight be due by merchants operating a general country store. The principal collections made by him appear to have been made on jewelry, and he has been furnishing receipts on "Arco Safety'' receipt forms. Smith, alias Hughes, has probably at some time been in the Revenue Service or else in close touch with Revenue Officers judging from the success of his game.

His hair is sandy or brown and his teeth irregular in length, are irregularly set in his mouth. !At one time he wore a light grey suit and a panama hat, and on another occasion wore a blue suit. It is his custom during his visits to merchants to display a metal badge and in his conversation refer to raids carried on in Kentucky by him and others. It is quite possible that this man may work his way into this district and for this reason, Collector Walsh warm all merchants especially in country towns to be on the lookout tor him.

Tents were put up and Scoutmaster Sheldon then turned the troop over to Assistant Scoutmaster Judd and re-, turned to headquarters in Enfield, and made arrangements to return to camp Sunday afternoon. When Scoutmaster Sheldon arrived at camp Sunday afternoon, from another road, he surprised the company by landing n their midst without being challenged, thus finding the guards were not on duty. The commanding officer gave the excuse that there was a shortage of help in the dishwashing department. The American flag was located in a prominent place with the flag of the first patrol. The tents were inspected and all found in good order. Patrol leader Greenwood reported a scouting expedition during the morning and a good supply of forage not far from camp. The scoutmaster then went with a party of scouts over the grounds and decided upon the place as the winter quafr ters of the troop. On return to camp supper was served and the scouts broke up camp for the home trip, going by various routes to their homes.

Mass. formerly a soldier at Camp Devens, stepped into the soldiers' and sailors' club Friday and gave a fake story of his landing in this country as a stowaway aboard a transport* after having gone through the most harrowing experiences in Belgium. He was given every sympathy by the clu'b members who were to buy a ticket for him to return to his home the following morning. Albout midnight Friday night Chief Rogers while passing the club rooms heard a commotion and noticed a man making his exit from the window in the rear of the rooms. He went to arrest him and it proved to be Fernon, who in reply to the question as to the reason for his actions stated that he was only "kidding" the service men with his story of hardship in Belgium and that he did not care to stay in the rooms. He was taken to the lockup and the following morning Chief Rogers got in touch with the authorities at Lynn. Mass. and asked them if they were looking for Fernon. The reply was: "No, ship him in another direction as we have had enough of him," Fernon was ordered to leave town. Service Medals at Town Clerk's Office Town Clerk J.
