The motion to defer action on the resolution appropriating $10,000 for this purpose was •made by M. W. Hullivan, chairman of the "White Way" committee-of the Board of Trade, who explained that the promoters of the, movement realized that there was going to be a large increase, in the tax rate this ye^ir, and it had been found that conditions of the agricultural section of. the town wtre not good and for that that in order to as low as possible be posponcd until the next town meeting. This action was taken at tliQ close of Mr. Hul-livah's explanation. The same course was taken oil the •article providing for an appropriation for the maintenance •of tha White Wav. The adverse ae->- and So- En-and fair of ^t-he Union Agricultural ciety, .comprising the towns of field, Ellington, East Windsor, Somers, held yesterday in Hazardville, was attended by over 4500 people. The,day was an ideal one for a fair, aiid it brought together many former residents of the villuge, who returned for the day to renew old acquaintances and exchange reminiscences. ' • The,fait- itself was-fully up to the standard- of previous years, and while the' displays were not as extensive as, seen at the larger expositions, it is unlikely that they have been unexcelled in quality in any similar country fair this Fall." The midway 3S?2r<ted" numerous attractions for* the enjoyment ol' the visitors ~;S 'One of the most sweeping political upheavals in the Tow's history took place at the annual election last Monday, when the combination of the democratic party and citizens movement captured practically all the offices in the town government. Cla.-I: L. Hsir.ilton who was reelected tax collector, was the only republican returned to office, with the exception of those whose nomination was equal to an election. In every other instance where there was a real contest, the coalition movement was successful. Hamilton's majority was a seant 33 votes, over his young and active opponent Gregory Sapsuzian of Enfield St. ' - t f J S - tory of the* town. The total registration in the town was 3235. The three districts is as loliows. District No. 1 .registered, 335 voted 244. District No 2 registered 2362 voted 2076. District No. 3 registered 537 voted 423. The big factor in the election was the citizens movement, which succeeded in developing the strength that its managers have been claiming for it for several days previous to election. Approximately 300 straight citizens votes were cast in the election,,which with the unusually large.straight democratic vote was the determining force in the contest. Districts 1 2 3 Total.

A 53-pound pumpkin raised by Archie Gourinski was the largest vegetable exhibited, although in the display of the East Windsor Grange a "Mammoth whale squash" fully lived up to its name both for size and general appearance. There was also a beautiful and extensive exhibition of apples and peaches by the Mountain View Orchard Company. The fancy worn u.\muit was one of the largest ever shown at a four-town fair and proved ' of particular interest to the women. In the historical collection there were entries of several articles each by L. H.

In the stock exhibit some splendid thorough-bred cattle were shown; including several of the prize-winners of the Amos I). Bridge's Sons, Inc., at the recent Eastern States Exposition. The Bridge Company, the Shaker Farms and the Mountain View Orchard Company exhibited some fine Holsteins, while Olin S. Olmstead and H. H. McKnight, the latter of Ellington, exhibited extensive herds of Guernseys. A baby beef exhibit by E. M. Granger, Sr., was of especial interest. There were numerous entries of merit in both the poultry and pet stock exhibits. The athletic sports were carried out in the. afternoon, and included two baseball games-, in both of which the Hazardville teams were the victors.

Besides his parents he leaves two sisters, Eleanor, a teacher in the South School, and Marion, a college student at New Rochelle, N. Y., and two brothers, William J., Jr., and Harold, both at home. His father, who is an overseer in the wool department of the Bigelow-Hartford Carpet Company, only returned a week ago from a European trip in the interests of the company. The funeral was held Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock in St."Patrick's church and the large edifice was well filled with relatives and friends of the young man, including virtually the entire student body of the Enfield High School, accompanied by Principal Edgar H. Parkman and several of the teachers and the members of the 1920 class of St. Joseph's parochial school, who occupied seats in the center aisle of the church, and a delegation from the Thompsonville Fire Department. The boy's schoolmates formed an aisle up the church steps, through which the" funeral procession' passed. The service consisted of a solemn requiem high mass, with Rev. William F. O'Brien as celebrant; Rev. Andrew J. Kelly, pastor of St. Anthony's Church, Hartford, a former curate at St. Patrick's Church, and organizer of the Father Matthew Boy Scouts troop, of which the boy was a member, as deacon; Rev.

The soloists were Mrs. Frederick R. Furey, Mrs. Daniel J. Garvey, and Miss Eleanor A. Sullivan. There were numerous and beautiful floral tributes from friends and relatives. The bearers were J.

About ten years ago a charter was secured for a sayings bank, but on account of the conditions at that time the matter was not pressed by those who secured the charter. Two years ago over one hundred residents of the town subscribed for stock in a proposed bank which would have a capital of .§100,- 000 and a surplus of $12,500. The aplication for this charter was denied by the State Banking Board. Within the past few months more: talk has been heard among business, men about the establishing of another bank and the Board of Trade has gone on record as favoring larger-banking facilities in this community for the business men and residents of the town. The Thompsonville Trust Company, an old and strong institution, started business with a capital of $25,000, which has never been increased. The surplus of the Trust Company has, however, continued to grow, until it reached approximately $155,000, net market value. The bank has paid annually, almost regularly, for a considerable number of years, dividends at the rate of about 40 per cent. At present Lyman A. Upson is President of the Thompsonville Trust Company, and Willis Gowdy is Treasurer and Cashier. Local School Authorities f l l ; 349 2535 348 2531 249 2527 130 1331 132 1327 A local young man was arrested in Springfield Sunday evening for breach of the peace. He gtpre. the name of Edward J. Keller, th«. Pearl Street' merchant, to the Springfield authorities, which caused considerable annoyance to Mr. Keller on Monday when informed by several people that he had been arrested. He was not even in Springfield the night in question, but got busy and found out the party who had done this and the latter made an apotygy. The young man stated that he did this to cover his own identity and did not think that it would appear in the Springfield papers the following morning. . . , _ . • A recent conference with the Honorable Thomas H. Russell, Fuel Ad- : ministrator, concerning the coal situa- ; tion revealed the following conditions: ! 1. There will be great irregularity ; during' the next six or eight weeks j with regard to the shipment of an- • thricite or hard coal. ; 2. After December 1, 1922, it is I likely that a sufficient supply of coal, » provided intelligent economy is exer- ; cised in its use, will be available and ; with less irregularity of shipment, so ; that by April, 1923, there is every • evidence that a supply equivalent to \ sixty per cent, of that of 1920-1921 j will have been shipped. t In view of these conditions and ' since the critical period is during the S next six or eight weeks, it is respectfully suggested and urged that your board utilize all available substitutes for hard coal wherever possible in heating the schools under "your jurisdiction. In the smaller schools wood is likely to be the fuel. In the larger schools where anthracite or bard coal has been used it may be desir- ; able to use bituminous or soft coal instead. For suggestions as to how soft coal may be best used application may be made to the Honorable Thomas H. Russell, Fuel Administrator, Old Senate Chamber, Capitol, Hartford, Connecticut, who will send in* structions. . ..i . ..V . . , . .. .1..., " , > ..

that in order to
