E1ditor The Advertiser:
I was greatly distressed on readinli
in yesterday's 'State" of the tragi<
death of Policeman Hose Martin.
*During- the time that I was mayo
-and!' Hose Martin was a policeman,
had ampfe opportanilty 'to dbserve Iii
from all- angles and 'I considered hin
one of the best officers hve'had, and v
good' man and citizen. I could sa
more good about him but to do s(
would carry me far from the real ob
ject of this letter.
The killing of this man is - bai
enough In itself. but when. one think
of the six sinali children left withou
father orI mother, it is ildeed a sa
case. I know that there'is little tha
human power call do to cheer an
comfort these little ones now, but ih
order that the 'Christmas season ma
be made as cheerful as possilble fo
them, I hope that a Christmas fun
may '1e ralsed aid ureseited to ther
so that Santa Claus will visit them a
usual thil; Christmas, and to give sue
a fund a start I am enclosing herc
with $2.00. 1 hope tlhat others wil
feel as I do about tis matter mnd wil
make contribitioios to yoi as truiste
of the fund.
