' IPAL10D YARD CONSIDERED Commissioners Not to Act Unless Profiteering Develops STREET PARKING IS DISCUSSED Local Motorists Asked Not to Leave Cars on Main Street for Long Periods Crossings for Pedestrians to De Marked Out Consideration of the advisability of establishing a municipal wood yard was riven . by the village commissioners in their rejrular meeting this week, but no definite action was taken, the board pre ferring to await developments and see whether dealers in wood show an in clination to charge high prices or to profiteer. The fact was brought out that even if the coal strike should be settled at once several months would elapse before much coal would be avail able here, as the production at the pres ent time is from 6.000,000 to 7,000,000 tons less than it should be. The commissioners will undertake to see that the public is protected against profiteering and short measurement. They do not wish to start a municipal plant unless the exigencies of the situa tion seem to require such action, and they authorize the statement that any action they take in this respect will be in harmony with the work of the local fuel committee, of which S. A. Daniels is chairman by appointment from the state fuel administrator. It is urged bv the commissioners that everybody get busy at once and get in a winter's supply of wood, and all per kiiis having a supply of wood for sale, are asked to notify Mr. Daniels. Another matter considered bv the com missioners was the desirability of pro hibiting the parking of automobiles on Main street by local owners. It was de cided not to make any order to that ef fect nt present but to appeal to local owners not to leave their ears on the street for long periods, because of the resultant, congested condition of the. street. They desire the co-operation of the citizens in this resnect. The matter of prohibiting the parking of any cars on Main street hill was discussed. On account of the narrowness of tlie street it. may be necessary to take such a step to .reduce the liability of accidents. As soon ai material arrives the com missioners will have crossings marked on ponie cf the streets and will expect, persons to cross at such places and will require motorists to refrain from park ing at the crossings. On the night of the American Lopion carnival, next Monday night. Main street will be closed to motorists from 7 to 0 oVock. between Elliot and Grove streets, as hundreds of persons will b-3 on the street that evening if the weather is favorable. STOLTE TO DIRECT ATHLETICS MONDAY Greased Pin Expected to Furnish Ex ciiement Car Owners Asked to Join Parade Baseball Games. New things of interest develop daily in connection with the Labor day cele bration. A series of athletic events tin der .he direction of D. Stolte is now open and the Leirion is anxious to have a good attendance of prospective en trants for these events. Some very good prizes are being selected which will be well worth the effort. It is earnestly hoped that all those who take anv part in the athletic activities of Brattleboro and vicinity will report on the track be fore 11 a. in. A real exciting greased pig chase is assured. The porker secured to -furnish the fun and challenge the crowd is probe hi v the speediest one ever pro duced on the race track. A brother of the same pig after several hours chno, was tinallv brought down with a rifle. So it is safe to sav that the 'person who clain.s this pig will have to show more than average s need -to even keep out of his own way. It. looks like a bx day of fun for Brattleboro if the weather man wakes u with a smile and joins the rest to loost thp celebration. Car owners who will decorate their cars to any extent are cordially invited to enter the narade which starts from th common at 0 a. m. sharp.
