Thursday afternoon the “Giants” of Lonaconing, last year’s champions of the George’s Creek League, came here for the opening game. There was no parade, no band concert, no dignified city official to throw the first ball over the plate, no “ground hog” or any other kind of a “hog” to root, yet there was what every fan and rooter wanted and went to see a real Simon pure dyed in the wool ball game. It really was a red hot contest from flag fall to finish. “Jim” McGuire has got together a bunch of pretty go.od ball tossers and Continued on Page 4. FROSTBURG, MARYLAND, SATURDAY. MAY 6, 1916 NEW MAYOR AND COUNCIL Reorganization Effected at the Regular Meet ing on Monday Evening—George Vogtman, New Member, Sworn In. WILLIAM A. GUNTER WAS CHOSEN CITY ATTORNEY The Mayor and Council of the Town of Frostburg met in regular monthly session on Monday evening. The meeting was called to order by Mayor Samuel R. Tiddy. Clerk J. S. Metzger called the roll and all the members responded to their names. The minutes of the adjourned meet ing, held on April 17th, were read and approved. An ordinance regulating the loca tion of gasoline supply pumps on the curb lines of streets, specifying the capacity of reservoirs for such pumps, and other conditions, failed of passage on account of not having received the required number of votes. So, for the present, at least, the methods at present in vogue will continue to be used in dispensing the vital fluid to owners of automobiles, and others. Formerly the Board of Health of Frostburg was compossd of two phy sicians who received for their services $75 and SSO each per annum. The one who received the larger sum per formed in addition the work devolving upon the secretary. At Monday’s meeting an ordinance was introduced and passed limiting the membership of the board to one physician who is to receive SIOO per annum, and in ad dition to the physician the Mayor will also be a member of the board. An ordinance will be presented at the June meeting defining the duties of the physician of the board, a vital point being that he shall be required to present to Mayor and Council at each regular meeting a written report of the health and sanitary condition of the corporation, besides other du ties that will be incorporated in the proposed ordinance, not already re quired in the Code. There being no further business to come before the meeting Council ad journed sine die. At this juncture Mayor Tiddy called upon William P. Sullivan, the only retiring member, for a few remarks, and that gentle man, in a fine little impromptu speech, referred briefly, but feelingly, to his four years’ association with the other members who constituted the Mayor and Council, and the great pleasure and satisfaction he derived by such IBy* gist* i v^f** PROF. GEO. VOGTMAN Director of the German Arion Band , Who Succeeded Wm. P. Sullivan as a Member of Mayor and Council. association. On account of these pleasant relations, he said, he was loth to part company with them, but wished the body, as at present con stituted, unbounded success and good tortune. Mayor Tiddy then took occasion to thank Mr. Sullivan for his efficient services as a Councilman, for his wise counsel and good judgment, and no one who--is familiar with his record and work as a Councilman will deny that he possessed both, and also stated how reluctant he was to part company with one who, in his official capacity had been so unselfish and untiring and so ready and willing at all times to do his duty as a citizen and Coun cilman as he saw it. During his career as a member of Mayor and Council it can truthfully be said of Mr. Sullivan that he was scruplously fair and unbiased in his judgment and always worked and yoted for the town’s best interests. His presence in the governing body of Frostburg . will be missed. Following a few minutes’ intermis sion Mayor Tiddy again reassembled i Council and the work of reorganiza tion for the coming year was begun. The recently elected members,Messrs. Griffith Hughes, Josiah Ford and j George Vogtman were duly sworn in, ! and J. S. Metzger was re-elected clerk without opposition. Here Mayor Tiddy introduced Dr. Robert Riley, deputy health officer of Garrett and Allegany counties, who addressed the Council on the work of the State Health Department and the necessity of the co-operation of Mayor and Council and citizens generally in the work. He told of the great bene fits accruing to the citizens of Frost burg and contiguous localities by the establishment of a laboratory at Cum berland and the magnitude of the work performed during the past year. Examinations for diphtheria, typhoid, tuberculosis and other diseases, tests made of milk, water, ice cream, etc., were the corporation have been called upon to pay for the service at the usual rates would have entailed an expense to the town of Frostburg of over $3,000. On account of the un tiring efforts of Dr. Riley and his as sociates, for the first time in years WILLIAM A. GUNTER Chosen City Attorney by Mayor and Council Monday Night. the schools here were not closed on account of contagious diseases. While this great service is gratui tous, so far as Frostburg is concerned, it is the conviction of The Journal that it would not be out of the way for Mayor and Council to contribute monthly a nominal sum for the sup port of the work and thus render its prosecution still more efficient. This would not be missed by Council and would greatly aid the work of Dr. Riley and those who are so gallantly and untiringly waging war against disease in our locality. Following Dr. Riley’s comprehen sive remarks, Dr. G. L. Cininger, who has been greatly aiding this grand health crusade, made a few remarks concerning the work in hand, lauding Dr. Riley in the work he is doing and the worderful results accomplished. Following these addresses, the work of reorganization was resumed. Tax Collector W. C. Noel, Street Super visor Owen Dando and Treasurer E. I. Prichard were re-elected without opposition. For Water Superintendent there were two candidates—the present in cumbent, Conrad Knieriem, and James A. Jeffries. The result of the vote being Knieriem 5 and Jeffries 2, Mr. Knieriem was declared elected. For engineer at the pumping sta tion John Bone received 7 votes and Robert Hill none, the former having been unanimously chosen. For City Attorney two applications were received. One from the present incumbent, Charles G. Watson, and the other from William A. Gunter. Mr. Gunter having received five of the seven votes was declared elected. The present City Engineer, William Harvey, was re-elected, and the fol lowing were named as Assessors: Thomas W. Williams, John C. Sour ball and William H. Davis. Mayor Tiddy announced the follow ing standing committees : Street and Sewer—Ford and Cook. Water—Vogtman and Layman. Light—Ford and Hughes. Finance—Hughes and Davis. Building—Vogtman and Davis. Printing—Ford and Layman. Ordinance—Hughes and Davis. Police—Vogtman and Cook. Legislative—Davis and Layman. Dr. A. R. Walker was chosen Board of Health physician. Clerk Metzger was instructed to ad vertise for bids for the removal of garbage, seven months of the year on full time and the remainder of the year on half-time. The present garb age collector was instructed to put in full time during the present month. j The Clerk was also instructed to ! advertise for bids for the lighting of the streets, lanes and alleys of the town for a period of one year begin ning July Ist. The Water Superintendent and the street laborers asked for an advance over the present rate of wages paid. The matter will be brought up at the next meeting of Council. The usual monthly bills were or dered paid, apportioned as follows : Corporate $ 706.14 Water 123.09 Total $ 829.23 Conrad Nickel complained of broken sewer at foot of Water street. Re ferred to Street and Sewer Committee, with power to act. As had been the custom up until a few years ago the Mayor and Council will spend several days in the inspec tion of the water works and other property of the corporation. To trans port the body Councilmen Ford and Davis have kindly volunteered the use of their automobiles. Upon motion the Clerk was instruct ed to have annual report published in the Mining Journal and also to have 500 folders printed from same for dis tribution. Council adjourned at 10:30 p. m.

Zihlman Victorious in Five-Cornered Fight Carries Three of Five Counties and Defeats Senator Speicher in His Own County. 1 iSt f A ~"--A, ." , ■ ■ Senator Frederick N. Zihlman captured the Re publican nomination for Congress in the Sixth District in a warm contest, carrying Washington, Allegany and Ga rett counties, the latter being the home county of Senator Harvey J. Speicher, also a candidate for Congressional hon ors. In this contest Senator Zihlman has proven himself to be one of the strong men of this saction. Leo Wein berg, in Frederick, and Gist -Blair, in Montgomery, proved themselves strong at home, but Zihlman blocked them in the other three counties of the district. For a time it appeared as though Former Mayor Geo. Stern, of Frostburg, had won the Democratic nomination, but later returns showed tnat Dorsey Htchison, of Freder ick had knocked the persimmon. It is now assured that the Hon. “Davy” Lewis’ district will be represented at Washington by a true-blue Republican. Mr. and Mrs. George Price Entertained Right Royally Mr. and Mrs. George Price enter tained a number of friends and rela tives Thursday night of last week at their residence, 98 Mechanic street, in honor of their mother, Mrs. Eliza beth Edwards, and their daughter, Miss Ethel Price, whose birthdays were thus celebrated. After an elaborate supper the guests repaired to the parlor where they enjoyed both vocal and instru mental music. Mrs. Elizabeth Ed wards was 81 years old April 28. She was born in Rhen, South Wales, April ■2B, 1835. She was the daughter of Thomas James, boss of one of the Welsh mines. Miss Elizabeth James, in company with her mother, brother and sister, left Giverpool, England, in May, 1851, to join her husband, who had come to America a few months earlier. They arrived in Phil adelphia just sixteen weeks and three days later. Four days later the fam ily reached Mount Savage, Md., where they made their home. Two years later Daniel Edwards : came from Wales and settled in Mount Savage. There he met, loved and won Miss James, and on Septem ber 19, 1857, the young couple were happily married. Two daughters cheered their family hearth while in Mount Savage, namely, Mrs. James • Stephens and Mrs. John J. Price. Mr. and Mrs. Edwards moved to . Allegany Mines. While there their i third daughter, Mrs. George Price, . was born. They moved to Frostburg in 1879. Mr. Edwards died at his home ten years later, April 28, 1889. • Although Mrs. Edwards was 81 • years old today, her hair is still black, i scarcely a grey hair can be seen. Her ; memory is very keen. She neither : looked nor acted the part of a great grandmother. She has three daugh WHOLF NUMBER 2,327 ters, eleven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. She gives every evidence of living to see some of her great, great grandchildren. Her health is good, and she is able to care for herself and look after the affairs of her home. During the past 37 years Mrs. Ed wards has been a consistent and faith ful member of Grace M. E. Church South, Frostburg. Miss Ethel Price was congratulated by the guests of having attained the years of independence. It is hoped she will live to the age of her grand mother. An interesting feature of the happy occasion was the baptismal service. Gittle Thelma Price, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Price, was baptized by her pastor, the Rev. R. Carl Max well, in the presence of her Sunday school teacher, Mrs. Albin Hawkins. Thelma has only missed one Sunday in attendance at Grace M. E.
