DANIELSON AND PDTNAM NEWS
i .1 i . DANIELSON Judge James N. Tucker rises to the de fense of the republicanism of the Third voting district of the town of which his horn village of East Klllingly is a part. Buch back-sliding as the party experienc ed in Tuesday's election is not", to be charged against ills district, Judge JFuck trs says, and he has the figures; to dem onstrate tin validity of his claim. Judge. Tucker calls attention -to the fact that only 291 voters, men and women, aro. registered in the Third district. Of Ihis number 22 voted last Tuesday. In all of Klllingly, with approximately -159 voters. Governor-elect Tcmpleton-- was given a majority of only 114 and' the' old third district, with about ten per aent." of the total voting strength -of the town, gave an even 50 of this majority. ' . In that district the vom for Freeman ..for congress was 127, as against S4..for Jo dohv Dp there Darbie and Williams, for representatives, received respectively Hf and 115 votes, while their democratic opponents, Wetherell and Sayles respec- SPECIAL FOR SATURDAY ONLY Mil fill ABOUT FTYE DOZEN EACH $1.50 SHIRTS $1.09 NECKITES 6rtW'b IN COMBINATION SHIRT and TIE AT THE SPECIAL PRICE OF C1 QC for both Tha shirts ara tno$tly "Emory" make, of firt penpals,, neat check end stripe pattern.

For state senator, Childs, the republican candidate was given 115 and Eitgood, democrat, 94. In the sheriff contest Gates, republican, lead Fox, democrat, 119 to 52. Judge Tucker has much , more ammu nition to refute the claim hat the Third district should bear an. odium for the fall flown of the republicans in Killing ly. He point? out that all-of the. re-: publican candidates were given a higher ftercentage of majority than they received elsewhere in the town, voting , strength considered. f .. , . - .- V And as an aftermath ef the election. comes the explanation that the demo crats trimmed,- the republicans In the Second-votirg district-of the town chiefly because of . the eight hour day agitation on the part of democratic candidates during the pre-election period. . And there is good reason to believe there is much in this claim. Several Dig manufacturing concerns are located in the Seoxmd vot ing district and the employes of them are almost a- unit in asserting that eight hours is ample for a day's work. Most of these mills are operating 54 hours each week. The promise that democratic candidates would labor if elected to the legislature for an 8-hour day without doubt shifted many votes from the republican to the democratic ticket. The issue is a live one and holds a special appeal to workers. They want an S-hour day and few will dispute that they are sot entitled to it Representative-elect Williams, republican. of the second district, is an avowed sujfe-l porter of the S-hour day program, but this fact might have been played up to I better advantage than was done for some reason not quite clear, ahd the republican party in Killingly suffered because of this tactical error. What was true in the second district was more or less paralleled in this, the first district, where the normal republican majority was reduced, but not wiped out. It may be a little ranch on some at the old boys jgfho are trying to stick along with the modern exponents, but it Is con fidentially asserted that the stiffening and rheumanilc ones are putting bird seed in their cereal every morning to pep up their hopping apparatus for the fall and Winter season. We would never admit it, but there must be an impression among some of The get-rich-quick stock selling concerns that Danielson -is a hick town. About svery mail brings a bale, more or less, Ot alluring invitations to invest in some enterprise paying from "30 per cent, an nually to a $1.12 cents a minute. . All the solicited one has to do is follow the printed instructions mail In a check and wait for the return Sow of JivlSends. Everything is offered from oil stock to shares in an aerial subway com pany. It appears that the stock-sellers have 'earned that Danielson has money oodles sf it. There is evidence that some of t has slipped away, never to return, but 'he great bulk of the literature dealing with stock investments that comes to Danielson goes iqto waste baskets, some jf it right in the lobby of the post of flee. -It has been broadcasted many times 4hat local bankers will impartially advise I myone and without cost as to invest ments. The service is free for the ask ing. This being the case, there is little ise for an inexperienced investor los ing his savings for lack of expert advice. Gordon K. Wither has broorhf in bis Gfth fox df the season. As a successful pursuer of Reynard, Mr. Witney is in a fair way to be rated as the season's champion. With such a good start and with ail the winter to hunt in, he' should eome close to making a record during the present season. Foxes are said to be sientiful herebouts and no man knows iheir haunts or their ways better than Mr. Withey. Considering the remarkable s&vtpff n. cord of the people of Danielson and vi cinity, as shown in part by the deposits m local savings institutions" during the past year,, it is amazing to consider that even the vast amount of money that has been laid away against future need rep resents proaably less than 10 cents on very dollar paid in wakes in this and nearby communities "during the past year The habit of thrift given such a WS boost by the Liberty loan campaigns dur ing the World war has endured.

Trade School PUTNAM PUTNAM Can it be that some of those who are given to deceit and spite are using the current penchant for distilling as a basis for entering false complaints against persons whom they wish to see raided by officials, in order to discs-edit those, raided and to bring disrepute upon them? This appears to be the belief of some officials, and one raid conducted just outside of Putnam this week may have been insti gated by false and malicious complaint. For many jsoritbs some officers have believed that among the mass f comi plaints always flowing in are a certain percentage ".iat are' based on mallei? rather than upon fact, anddue ' care is exercised in investigating- thorn, though error is apt to occur at times'. It Is not the intention of officials to-raid innocent persons. It is a faet. though, that a Very large percentage of the complaint" re ceived,; usually through thai mail, are of an anonymous nature. A difficulty that confronts the officers is to sift the real information from the false and act ac cordingly. Human nature is as mean in Streaks as is te situation that makes possible the invasion of the premises of innocent persons, but that is the condi tion existing today and it is "bound at times to result in injury being done to some' innocent; person,. . . . ' i Relative to iAicit distilling, 'it appears the indulgence in it cn a commercial pasis is being driven farther out into the coun try than was the rule a year or two ago. The big stills are rarely ever found now in the more densely populated sections ot this county, but out in the back country districts, where the risk of detection or "sqaealers" ia leas. In the death this week in a Woreeetes hospital of little Ralph Stewart Deane what appears to be the final curtain fell upon the unsolved mystery of the 'child's parentage. The infant was abandoned on the night of Sept. 5 on the doorstep of a home in Woodstock, and eventually wa's taken for adoption by Mr. and Mr. George Deane, for whom the child was named. ; " " ' ' From the hoar the abandoned child was found nntil the present time," hot an ink ling has ever eoine as; to who left the child or from whence it came. Pobce in vestigated the case ' and exerted them selves to get orals that might lead fd the identity of either one or both of the par baf fl foiS? te"5S,lTS" completely It now seems established that th chfld was prematurely born. From the time it ws abandoned, just over two; month ago, it is sam never to. have given prom ise of thriving and developing! and re cently became so ill that it was defeoei best to take it to. a "Worcester hospital for special treatment, but even the' best care the institution afforded failed to save its uie. While there eaa be naOifnc- better than conjecture as tp where the child was brought from to the Woodstock , home where it was abandoned, there Is a possi bility' thaf it may have been from South bridge or Webster or some other Massa chusetts point as. 'likely as. from this city or some other pojnt hereabouts.
