Moore, general manager of ih*- Normal Tool Company, mailed to every voter In this town yesterday a circular letter containing a postal card 1 asking that they return same to him with their reply whether they are for or against building the town hall. Mr I Moore says In his letter that by con structing the butldlug that the taxes will be larger and tbat It Is a useless expense ou the taxpayers to erect the building at present, until the town shall have become larger, when such a place will be needed. It is authorltlvely stated that a com mittee of representative citizens. " iii'ii win pruuati} ue neaaea Dy air. Moore, will bo a; the final meeting of lh<» oi.l council next bYiday evening, requesting that no further action be taken by them in building theh&ll. "rhose who are opposing the move ment contend that the money can be bt tter spent iu putting the streets in -nope by paving the side afreets. However. It appears that the majority of the people are willing that the hall be hullt, which question has been dis cussed at public mass meetings and on the streets since the town was ln eorporated. Now that the council has gono to the expense of having plans drawn and advertising fo rblds It Is j very probable that the hall will be built, regardless of the opposition. Slide on Traction Line.
