There is great indignation in Kast Berlin over the conditions of the New Britain sewer beds. The feeling about town is that the p.ollution of the water, which is caused by the beds is responsible for the failure of any new industry to locate in East Berlin. In the past few months there have beu several rumors afloat that different concerns were contemplating the pur chase of either the old Berlin Bridge plant or the Wilcox factory. Evident ly these rumors were not well found ed for the factories are vacant at present. Some of the residents ate thinking of holding an indignation meeting and making a protest ov;r the beds. n There are several suits pending on account of the sewage anJ according to the citizens, many more will be brought.

Wants Austria to Concede Tran sylvania to Rumania Paris, Dec. 1, 5:10 a- m Diplo matic circles at Rome believe, says the correspondent of the Journal that the visit of Emperor William to Vienna was made to reconcile if pos sible, . divergent views of Germany and Austria and obtain a pledge of ter ritorial sacrifices from Hungary in the hope of assuring the neutrality of Rumania. Keep Rumania Neutral. Alexander Marghiloman and P. P Carp, leader of the Rumanian con servatives are reported to have as sured the Duke of Mecklenburg Schwerin when, he was in Bucharest that the benevolent neutrality of Rumania could be counted upon by the Teutonic allies if Germany could induce Austria to cede Transylvania and part of Bukowina to Rumania. M. Carp is said to have promised also to bring about changes in the Ru manian cabinet. Negotiations between Berlin and Vienna, the Journal says, were fruit less,, owing to the determined oppo sition of Hungary and it is asserted that the German ruler is endeavor ing to induce Emperor Francis Jo seph to consent to the sacrifice of Transylvania upon the understanding that Germany will return to Austria two provinces of Silesia annexed to Prussia in 1866. Austria Seeking Peace. Rome, Dec. 1, via Paris, 4:45 a. m. "The real object of Emperor Wil liam's visit to Vienna was to put a stop to efforts Austria is making, by means of negotiations through Mad rid, with the Vatican, to obtain a separate peace with the quadruple entente," says the Tribuna. "Vienna and Berlin disagree' on the question of peace. Berlin desires to treat separately with each of the allies so as to break up the quadruple entente, and then to crush England, but Vienna desires a real and lasting peace to end the tension, which rapid ly is becoming too great for Austria to bear." OBJECT OF KAISER'S VISIT TO VIENNA Plata vltte News TOWN OFFICIAL TO BECOMEBANKRIIPT William C. Hart Prepares to File Voluntary Petition SELECTMAN HAS REVERSES Creditors Press Claims. Making Ac tion Necessary-Liveryman's Friends Sorry Over His Misfortune Select men Won't Appoint Conlon. Pressure brought by some of the largest creditors for settlement of their accounts has resulted, it was said today, in preparations by Select men William C. Hart for the filing of a voluntary petition in bankruptcy and the liveryman's accounts were turned over to his lawyer this morn ing to pave the way for formally noti fying the courts. Mr. Hart has been in the livery business for a few years and his affairs are now said to be in unsatisfactory shape. That there was a possibility of civil actions, which might force him into bankruptcy, was admitted by friends of the selectman and it was said this danger influenced him in making the decision to put his busi ness affairs in the hands of the courts for settlement. The estate of F. B. Newton is the heaviest creditor and pressure brought by the administra tor made the situation critical for Mr. Hart, his decision to quit resulting. The townspeople in general sym pathize with the selectmen in his mis fortune. It has been known for some time that the condition of his business affairs were not satisfactory but it was, thought that with the1 re turn of prosperous times he would be able to get off the rocks and improve his financial standing. During a period of business depression which preceded the war, Mr. Hart met with reverses, which kept his affairs some what tangled since. During the past few months, however, there had been a gratifying improvement and had the creditors held off for a reasonable time, Mr. Hart felt certain that he could save himself from bankruptcy. Mr. Hart purchased the business from the late F. B. Newton and for a time was quite successful. A hard worker himself, the selectmen tried energetically to keep the busi ness going but. the year of hard times set him back to such an extent that he had not fully recovered and the anxiety of his creditors finally brought matters to a head. Besides conducting the livery busi ness Mr. Hart acted as local repre sentative of the trolley express de partment of the Connectir-ut company. Oharl.es Bunnell, who was employed as foreman for Mr. Plart for several months, has decided to go into the trucking business himself and while the selectman's affairs are in process of settlement he will attempt to es tablish his own trade. No Plainville -failure in recent years brought forth so many expressions of sympathy as were heard about the streets today, when Mr. Hart's deci sion to g!o into bankruptcy became public. The selectman is one of the town's most popular citizens and his friends were genuinely sorry for his misfortune. Won't Appoint Conlon. Claiming that the voters registered their disapproval of the appointment of officers, when they reduced to $200 the yearly appropriation for policing the streets, the selectmen have decid ed to give up the idea of naming John E. Conlon as an addition to the squad of constables who went into office at the last election. Mr. Conlon is janitor of the town building and while the' board voted to give him authority as a policeman in the hall, they thought it would be against the wishes of the people if they gave him a constable's shield. Two of the constables elected in October failed to qualify and as a result the town has but five police officers. None of them are located near the center during the daytime and it was thought that as Conlon could be reached easily in case the services of an officer were required his appointment would be warranted. The board concluded, however, that the voters would not be in favor of such a move, judging from the size of the appropriation made for po licing the streets. Hence the action taken. The town is practically without ex pense for police protection under the existing conditions. There are no paid policemen on duty at any time and seemingly the community is as happy as it was under the old order of things. Since Bristol became a "wet" city, but few arrests have been made and the constables who frequent the center of the town at night do not have much difficulty in preserving or der. Get No Answer.

The directors have given no in timation as to the probable fate of the request, and the workmen believe it has been pigeonholed. The trolleymen asked to have the maximum wage made thirty cents an hour instead of twenty-nine. They made their petition a request rather than an ultimatum, and even should the company turn it down it is doubt ful if trouble will result. Prepare for Exhibit. . The committee in charge of the arrangements for the exhibit to be given Thursday and Friday by the Plainville Camera club started today hanging the pictures contributed and the members report that the towns people will see an array of photo graphs and paintings that will sur prise them. The pictures will be dis played in the library room in the town building. The exhibit will be given tomor row night from 7 to 9 o'clock and on Friday from 3 to 5 in the after noon and 7 to 9 in the evening. Brief Items.

David Lubin, American delegate to the International Institution of Agriculture at Rome, Italy, speaking today before the na tional conference on marketing and farm credits in Chicago said that bet ter marketing conditions and adequate credit facilities for agricultural opera tions will come in this country only when the American farmer acts tor himself in advocating legislation to foster and provide new economic ma chinery. Mr. Lubin said in part: "German farmers, originally, were not brighter than the American farm ers; in fact, they were not nearly as bright. It is only now when they are operating under their effective econ omic systems that the German fann ers have become brighter than the Americans. In fact, they have become the brightest farmers in the world. Last to Slake Changes. "But it was not the German farm ers who invented and devised these .effective economic systems and ob tained their legislation enactment. They were devised and given legisla tive enactment by the government. Why by the government? Because it is a well known fact that farmers, as a result of their environment, are t-o conservative to pioneer the way for changes in mode or method- The farmers the world over are the last to make changes in their style of gar ments, theii mode of speech, or their opinions. "The rulers of Germany foresaw the tendency to which the rising tide of urban socialism promised to lead; the socialism that threatened the de- j struction of their political status quo. ! They thought a method for the control , or eradication of this socialism could be found in the strengthening of the conservative element the farming population. German Rulers Right. "Under the belief that with suffi cient reinforcement the conservative farmers would prove more than a j match for the socialist radical of the cities, the ruling power of Ger- ; many devised and enacted into law I the economic systems of rural credits ) and marketing now operating there. Experience has proven that the rul ers of Germany were right; for not alone does the present advantageous economic status of the German farm er, under these systems, hold in check the socialism and radicalism of the German cities, but it has also so strengthened Germany as to render her almost invulnerable and invin cible. - "It is high time for farmers to look about them and see what changes in economic methods have taken place j since the last half of the nineteenth j century. There is the telephone and i the telegraph. There are the typo writer, the card index, the board of j trade, the chamber of commerce, the clearing house, the mercantile agency, and the thousand and one other devices and methods for the econo mic transaction of modern business.

Before time business was transacted, individuals or firms, but in our day business is transacted through corporations." Could AJd Farmers. Mr. Lubin then explained how many of these corporate commercial advantages could be extended to far mers by a plan based on the German system of land credits. He argued that no individual would need to sac rifice his independence of action, add ing that "the marketing or distri buting system is simply an Organized semi-official nation-wide bureau, which embraces the services for agri culture that commerce receives through its boards of trade a nd clearing houses." "In other words," he continued, "where the farmer now sees only- with his own two eyes, he will have added to his commercial vision the commer cial sight of millions of his co workers. The business and commer cial world would not tolerate for a moment the abrogation of their i rources of wide range commercial ' knowledge and Its resultant activities, ! and it can be safely said that once I adopted neither would the American J iarmer aorogate u. Ana tne nrst step toward the materialization of the proposals before us is the awakening of the American farmers. They must put on the harness, and exert their power by pulling the car of progress forward. Others Will Step In.
