AN OPEN LETTER TO HIS HONOR, MAYOR C. W WESCOTT OF BELFAST, MAINE. Dear Sir: As a result of your adver tisement in the current issue of the local paper, requesting those who had objec tions to a memorial tablet to the honor ed dead who gave their lives for each and all of us being placed upon the new bridge, vI have many and decided objec tions to the placing of such a tablet. I approach this matter in a spirit of the utmost humility and with the vague thought in the back, of my mind that pos sibly I may have eery small excuse or right to, in any way, criticise the action °t the City Government or anybody else, who wishes to place a memorial on the - bridge. As to my admiration for, and 1 deep and sincere feeling of gratitude to- \ ward those noble patriots who gave their lives to the cause, I yield to no maai. A fitting memorial to their memory 1 should be raised. It is the least that Bel- i fast can do, and in no way is, or can be. adequate. As those of us who were de nied the supreme privilege ot having sons to send tc France, to die if need be, also were denied <the privilege of going to trance to join that hero band, should we, notwithstanding the fact that we did all we could in the various necessary and urgently required drives, bond sales, etc., as well as buying till it hurt, be denied a voice in the locating of memorials? There seems to me to be various and sundry excellent reasons why a memor ial should not be placed upon the bridge. Had I been fortunate enough to have had a boy who went to France and died that we might live, does it seem to you or me, or anybody else that we would have been wilting for that, boy to have had erected to him a memorial in the location pro posed? I don’t think the location offers that atmosp lere of quiet, culture and re finement which is requisite to the calm, thoughtful meditation that one should possess while contemplating the lives of heroes. One should not be compelled to stand in the street or upon a bridge, in dust and danger while reading the inscription on a tablet. The surroundings ought, it seems to me, to be of a character to add to the impressiveness of any memorial which I may be contemplated The material of a memorial erected in Maine, in general, or in Waldo County in I particular, to the memory of any of its lost sons and heroes, ought to be typical of its most enduring product, namely granite. 1 know of no fitting place upon I the bridge to place a granite memorial. The approach to the bridge is quite likely to be somewhat congested, as 1 Bridge street is quite tortuous, and in places very narrow. Also, from the present outlook, we are not likely to have this street either made straight or widened in the near future. The entrance to the bridge is by the way of a very narrow lane between the Coe-Mortimer property and Booth Bros, sardine factory (both quite necessary in- I dustries, but not adding much to the esthetic qualities of a location for a me morial.) A masked grade crossing then is approached, and if 1600 cars each day cross this bridge, and a few people from , each car stopped to read the inscription upon the proposed tablet, will it not, sir, cause some trifling congestion in traflicj The approach and actual entrance to the bridge, grade crossir g, etc., are sali ent features which will have a tendency to discourage that soothing quietness of thought sc necessary to acquire the right attitude of mind to properly indulge in hero worship. Do you not. agree with me, sir, that it is failing from the sub lime to the ridiculous to think for a mo ment of placing a memorial tablet to our loved and fallen iieroes, that is to remain as long as lime lasts, iu such a malodor ous location? As far as my limited pow er can be extended I fail utterly to visu alize a splendid, heroic figure of one of our grand soldiers of the Legion, with ihe features of a Greek God, standing through all the eons of eternity on guard at the bridge, gazing with the sadness of re proach upon the maiign, malodorous mud flats of the raging Passagassawaukeag. I am perfectly aware that it does not require much brains to lind fault, and that intelligent criticism assumes a knowledge of the subject. However, I olTer these thoughts for what they are worth, and if they have no value they will neither add nor detract from the gayety of Nations. 1 wish to oiler a tentative plan for a memorial and its location. This is not original. It was suggested to me by a gentleman who is a clear and sound thinker, who has the best interests of the city at heart. The loyal Legion will soon acquire, by force of circumslances, the Memorial Building, as the Grand Army of the Republic, so sadly and with so much of our regret, will be forced by di minishing members to release it to other hands. The Waldo County Court House is a temple dedicated to justice and equal ity among men. What more fitting than to place a monument of Waldo county granite, which will withstand the tireless tooth of time, and remain as unchange able as the eternal hills, a stately, digni fied and adequate tribute to the memory of our loved and lost ones? A beautiful spot, quiet, clean, running through from one street to another, and a place that would become hallowed and sacred with j the lapse of time. And again it offers a somewhat seclud- | ed resting place lor pilgrims to that I shrine, who might wish to tarry awhile | in the sacred vicinity of this memorial, and could do so without loss of time,dust, dirt, danger, or any interference with traffic. I olfei these rambling thoughts hoping many others, and those more qualified than 1, will enter this discussion, and we will have a full and complete expression of opinion of all who are interested, and everybody ought to be. Yours very respectfully, William Lincoln West. MRS. EFFIE M. GORDON _ i The Angel Death has entered our home and taken from our Circle our dearly beloved wife aud mother, Ellle Gordon, who passed away May 30, 1921. Mrs. Gordon suffered a shock two years ago and never fully recovered from its effects altho she was around the home and sat up in a chair a little, she was taken down about three weeks ago from i which she never recovered. Mrs. Gordon was a woman who will be greatly missed especially in her home where her voice was a comfort and her smile was but to cheer. She was a member of the Baptist Church at South Montville, and a true Christian woman. She also was a member of the South I Montville, "W. C. T. U.” She died with a hope true and strong in the God she had loved and served so long and : faithfully. The interment was in the Liberty cem etery, E. A. Davis of South Montville officiating. The flowers were many and beautiful, showing the high esteem in i which she was held. She left to mourn her loss her devoted husband, Abram Gordon, three children j Theoda and Vernon Gordon of Liberty I and Mrs. Lee Cross of Morrill. One sis ! ter, Mrs. George Daggett of Belfast and many other relatives and friends, b.m.c. An Open Letter To Hon. William Lincoln West of Belfast, Maine. My Dear Mr. West: I have asked permission of the Mayor to answer your open letter addressed to | him which appears in the Bangor Daily News under date of June 13, 1921. I wish to answer this letter, not that I desire to enter into any personal con troversy, but because as circumstances have made me Commander of the Ameri can Legion, I feel responsible for the original suggestion that the new bridge across Belfast harbor be dedicated to the boys of Waldo County who died in the recent war 1 am answering the letter not that. I expect to change your opinion in the , matter, but because you have called the public’s attention so strongly to your 1 objections in having the bridge so dedi cated. Lest the public misunderstand the fail ure of the American Legion to respond to your objections, I am replying to you by | an open letter so that the people of this ' community may understand fully why ] the Legion has asked to have the bridge [ dedicated as referred above. Frankly, I am surprised that at this late hour you should so decidedly voice your objections in the matter. During the winter months we published at regu lar intervals the list of names of the boys of Waldo county which are to appear on this Memorial Tablet, giving notice there by that such a tablet was to be erected, and inviting objections,if there were any, to be raised. During this time you, by your silence, apparently, had no strong objection. I believe that it is your duty, and the duty of every other influential citizen to lend his effort in having such a dedication supported unanimously by the whole community. We do not object to you using your ef forts in erecting a memorial which would be better and more fitting than the one we are advocating. In fact, we would support such a movement whole-heart edly. We do, most seriously, object to the endeavor on your part, and on the part of others, to put obstacles in the way of the completion of our project without a definite and possible alterna tive to take its place. The new bridge is, in the opinion of those who are acquainted with such mat ters, one of the finest structures in this State, representing an expenditure of over one quarter of one million dollars. It is the only structure in the city or in Waldo county which represents such an expenditure of money, and which lias been constructed to withstand the severe i vicissitudes of this climate, and to be so far as it is possible enduring for all times. As this bridge is primarily built to serve the people of this county, it is most litting that ti e bridge sh( uld be dedicat ed to the sons of this county who died in the recent war. The bridge is a main link in the Atlantic highway, and as such, will be travelled over by tourists from all parts of this country. Not only j then, would the memorial be viewed with esteem, honor and reverence by the peo- [ pie of our own county, but all those who come here from the farthest corners of our continent. The objection that tour ists would blockade the bridge and tie up traffic is not logical—it is imaginary, not : real. It is worthy of note that in our en deavors to compile an authentic list of the names for this tablet that no parent or relative has placed an objection to such a memorial. Rather the contrary is true, that in many instances complete i approval has been voiced and praise ex tended for so commendable an under taking. 1 read in your article the following: I fail utterly to visualize a splendid, heroic figure of one of our grand soldiers of the Legion, with the features of a Greek God, standing through all the eon - of eternity on guard at the Bridge, gazing with the sadness of reproach upon the malign, malodorous mud flats of the raging Pas sagassawaukeag.” Truly, there were no such animals in the recent war! If that is your idea of what an American soldier on the firing line in France looked liKe, may I correct your hallucination? He was not an heroic figure in the sense which you use the term. He was, how ever, a rugged youth, wearing a shabby olive drab uniform ‘torn away at the throat; probably his leggings were torn and ragged, possibly riddled by machine gun bullets; and on his head lie wore a steel hat tilted jauntily to one side. In this attire he went plunging, stumbling, crawling thru the mud, thick underbrush, and barbed wire, his whole motive being to serve and to do the job winch was im mediately at hand. He plunged on thru whatever obstacles he met until he over came the resistance, or else was dropped by an enemy bullet. If perchance a com rade stopped to help him, he brushed him aside and told him to “Carry on.” Mud covered, besmirched with blood, he was not the picture you paint of a Greek God but he was a living personification of the word “Service,” and can we imagine such a one wishing to be immortalized by something which is of no use, and some thing whicii does not serve mankind? It is certain that if this same American soldier could have died within smelling distance of this same Passagussawaukeag, he would have felt that he had surely reached his heaven! It has been rightly said that the erec tion of statues and shafts, arches and mausoleums rightly belongs to the old i era of generations gone by. Certain it is that such monuments, even the best of them, fail to symbolize the idea of ser vice to humanity, and the ideals of j brotherhood we now seek to perpetuate. \ Can you imagine a granite column which ' you suggest plac.d in the cramped eu closure between the Memorial Hall and j the Court House affording a proper me morial to these sons of Waldo County "who gave their last full measure of de votion” w th no thought to be heroic, but simply to serve? The American Legion does not believe that this memorial should take the place of anything of a finer nature which the citizens of Belfast may at some later time wish to erect to commemorate the boys of this City who died in the war. It does, however, believe that under the circumstances the bridge is the most fit ting memorial that the County could dedicate to its sous, and that this dedi cation shauld rereive the suppurt of ev er, citizen unless there is offered an al ternative that can be realized, and which would as adequately express the senti ments of the people of this County.

Brierley and Rev. A. C. Elliott. Congregational Church, North BELFAST. The services at this beautiful little church continue to be well attend ed. This is just as it should be. Who can estimate the value of a church to a community? The tall, tapering spire pointing to the sKies is a constant, witness to the great spiritual verities of life, per haps making men sometimes ashamed of the evil they do, and causing them to look up with a wistful desire for higher and better things. As our youths and maidens gather within the sacred walls and join in the singing of the old hymns, emotions may be stirred in them which it is good for them to experience; the scriptures read and expounded, and the prayers offered in their behalf may cre ate impressions which will abide with them forever; while the sermon may con vey moral and religious truths which will Jenrich their characters, strengthen their spirits, nourish their souls, and for tify them for the battle of life. The great need of America today is to get back to the faith of our fathers, to re build the altars we have thrown down, to pledge anew our allegiance to God, and give religion its rightful place in our in dividual and community life. In order to do this let us gather in ever increasing numbers around the greatest institution in the world—the church—and make it a center of social life and a source of moral and spiritual Inspiration. Next Sunday evening the pastor, Rev. A. C. Elliott, will preach. His sermon will be a spec ial message for the young people, and it will not be without its lessons for the older folks. There will also be a short talk to the children. Let everybody plan to oe present at 7.30 p. m. MRS. ALVEDA J. S1RATTON Alveda J. Stratton died June 7 at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Melvin H. Pattershali at the Upper Bridge, after be ing in failing health or the past two years. The immediate cause of her death was a paralytic shock on May 27 which rendered her helpless and partly unconscious the greater part of the time. She gradually failed until the end came. Mrs. Stratton was born at North Sears port, December 9, 1846, the daughter of Andrew and Martha (Towle) Mason, and sister to the late Andrew J. and Howard F. Mason of this city. Mrs. Stratton was married to the late George W. Strat ton of North Searsport Oct. 1, 1865, Mr. Stratton having passed away many years ago. Mrs. Stratton came to Belfast twenty-nine years ago and has resided here ever since. She is survived by one sister, Mrs. Alex. H. Blood of Vinal haven, who was unable to come to Bel fast to attend the funeral, also by two daughters and one-grandson, Mrs. Patter shali, with whom she had always lived, and Mrs. Martha E. Hammond of Boston, formerly of Bangor and grandson, Har land S. Pattershali, who was his grand mother’s idol. The funeial took place Friday P. M. at the Pattershali home and was conducted by the Rev. Chas. W. Martin of the Methodist church. The remains were taken- to North Searsport for burial in the Stratton family lot Many beautiful flowers were sent by rel atives and frienda. SPARKS’ CIRCUS IS 20th CENTURY WONDER SHOW NEARLY TWICE AS BIG AS OF FORMER YEARS—MERGE BEST FEATURES IN MAMMOUTH NEW CIRCUS—BIGGER, BETTER THAN EVER—ARE TO GIVE EXHIBITIONS HERE SATURDAY, JUNE 25th. For many years the Sparks’ Circus has been known as one of America’f fore most tented enterprises, each year something new has always been added, until now it ranks among the best of the “big tops’’ and this season with one of the greatest array of performers, horses aud equipment ever before carried, promises to be a banner one. When the show visits this city it will be exhibited in its own especial ly constructed tents. It is said that the Sparks’ Menagerie is equal to any cn the road today. A magnificent introductory pageant and grand revue, enlisting several hundreds of performers, companies of horses and gorgeous paraphernalia, opens the main tent program. This program presents miny of the worlds’ stars of the arenic world, assisted by scores upon scores of others. There are several companies of dumb actors. Everything is given in a more lavish fashion than ever before. Three rings and an elevated stage are needed to take care of the acrobatic and musical seals, trained bears, lion acts and the famous Sparks’ herds of elephants aud a long lists of acts which requires nearly two hours to present. This 20th Century Wonder Show has become one of the greatest institutions on the road today and just as there are more men and women, more seals and more elephant actors added—so there are more clowns, more horses, more ponies, to delight the children, more and better trained dogs, monkeys, bears—more everything. The streat parade, which will precede the initial exhibition here, is far and away the most novel ever attempted. This city will see the circus on Saturday, June 25th.
