Build That Fence, Quick.
j John G. Ilarman, Ivsq., town
Solicitor, has decided that the
! Council has the right to give per-
mission tor the iencing in 01 rtin
letic Park, for baseball, and he will
so render his opinion to the body
at its next meeting.
It is to be hoped that Council
will act upon this quickly in the
affirmative. The place is practical
ly useless and entirely unbeautiful,
and its restoration to a baseball
ground would not depreciate its
present value. It would furnish a
suitable field for the games of the
Bloomsburg League Team, the pro
motion of which is being held up
by the delay in securing grounds.

"The justice and necessity of

I don't know where to begin," the !
speaker remarked at the opening j

be deprived of this privileve? I am j

higher tone than m;n. Women
have leisure for study and thought.
As for their intelligence. I believe
it is greater than that of men.
Women remain in school longer,
and it. is the women who originate
the charitable institutions of our
cities, who know what the munici
pal requirements arc. Why then
do we class them with criminals,
idiots and imbeciles? Give them a
chance; they could not, at least, do
worse than men."
