Believe That Sale of Fire

MUST BE WO DISCHARGE
Commissioner Hart reiterates Com
inanil as Outlined Previously
in The Argus.
Misguided statements in regard to
the sale of fireworks, in which dec
laration was made that pyrotechnics
are not to be sold except on the joy
ous Fourth, have led dealers in the
display goods into a quandary. It was
stated this morning by polic,? author
ises that the order is in error ami
that all legitimate fireworks may be
sold ,at any time previous to th
Fourth. As has been stated in The
Argus, the discharge of fireworks, and
not the aale, is what the police in
tend to stop before or after the na
tional independence day.

Commissioner Archie Hart has stat
ed that the sale or discharge of giant
