WHY RENT AM) TAX PAYERS SHOULD REGISTER
While every person who wishes to be classed as a good
citizen should exert at all times as great an influence on public
V rs s' Possltle, by- taking part in the primaries and the elec
. T tions, there is an especial reason why this influence should be
usedLthis year here in Bridgeport.
The coming municipal election in some ways probably is
ine most important one ever held in Bridgeport, and its results
will directly affect the pocket book of every one in the City.
This is due to the fact that this fall for the first time there will
fie elected-a Board of Assessors who will determine the valuations-
oh which the taxes will be assessed. " This not only di
, rectly affects real estate owners but indirectly every rent naver
; ; as well for whether the person who pays rent realizes it or not
- ne pays the taxes on the property which he occupies although
. they are hidden in the rent. .
Under the new arrangement the assessors are entirely inde-
jjenueni oi me Mayor being chosen by a direct vote of the peo-
pie and directly responsible to them. It will be of little mo
pent so far as the acts of the assessors are concerned whether
there is a good or a bad mayor in charge of municipal affairs
a good mayor could not prevent improper actions by the board
neither would a good board of assessors need to be influenced
v by any suggestions of a mayor who might be too much of- a
politician for the best interests of the city.
, Another point in connection with this first election of a
; board of assessors is that a. whole board will have to be elected
' ad n?.a Prtion of the board as will be the annual practice
carter this year.
: . When these things are considered it becomes clear at once
StW "nportant it is that no person should be named as a -candidate
for a position on the board that would not be a satisfac
4 -tory member if elected. The only way that the rent payers and
taxpayers of Bridgeport can be sure that only- such men will be
selected for candidates is to attend the primaries and by their
votes have a voice in the selection.
As the Times has been pointing out, such participat

KU KLUX CLAN
MEMBERS ARE
LAW ABIDING
Tulsa, Okla.. Aug. 11 Many crimes
have been committed by the cowardly
in the name of the Ku Klux Klan
but the order, of which he Is a mem
ber, is composed of law abiding citi
zens. Dr. Caleb A. Ridley. Atlanta,
Ga., minister declared in an address
on the airns and organization of the
invisible empire" here last night at
Convention Hall.
The purpose of the Ku Klux,- the
speaker said, is three fold, to protect
the weak, - innocent and defenseless
from the outrages of the violent, the
lawless and the brutal; to protect and
defend the constitution of the United
States j and to aid in the execution of
all constitutional law.
The proviso of Its membershio.
barring negroes, Jews and CatholicsH
has lea many people to believe, ac
cording to Dr. Ridley, that the Klan
is negative and not positive in its
alms.
Dr. Ridley said he was not a paid
lecturer, but was spending his vaca
tion "between Sundays" speakinn tor
It, in order to combat "Insidious prop
aganda" which he said has been cir
culated against It.
"A white man la n. wliltn nan
whether he lives in New Jersey, In
diana, Oklahoma or Georgia," tha
speaker said, and a white man's job
is to see that civilization comes under
the dominion of no inferior race so
long as he lives."

heard from again until he appeared
in Weehawken on July 16, 1921. He
then pesed as "I-ieutenant George

mur solicitude from the hospital a.t

and he was afforded every comfort
and convenience.
On August 2, the day when -relative
from Oklahoma wrre due to
visit him, he disappeared from the
hospttal, and the evening of the same
day 'Knneth Sanford" was found
wandering about the streets of
Bridgeport.
Investigation started by Chief
Clausen in Weehawken disclosed vthe
fact that the "Lieutenant Hamon"
was Victor Weiss, the swindler and
confidence man of New York. The
next trace found of him was the copy
of tbe finger prints taken in the local
hosp?tal.
Wiss is claimed to be one of tho
cleverest confidence men now work
ing the game, and as an evidence of
uis aaeptness it was shown that he
successfully duped the War Depart

unable to identify him. or confirm his
supposedly meritorious war record.

Sixth District
Republican '
Women Meet
A meeting of the Sixth District Re
publican Women's club was held on
Tuesday night at the home of Mrs.
Carl Reck, 162 Oak street. During
the evening. Mrs. Williard H. Fleck
spoke on "The History of the Re
publican Women's Organization," and
Mrs. Theodore Steiber made a very
fine address on the subject of "The
Importance of Organization.
In a statement which appeared ln
some of the local papers some weeks
ago regarding the political attitude of
the club, Mrs. Charles M. Penny,
chairman of the Sixth District Re
publican organization was misquoted
in the last paragraph which reaa
"This action was wholly unofficial.'
The word "illegal" was substituted for
the word "unofficial" which brought
down considerable Just criticism from
some of the members of the club.
This matter was explained to the
members by Mrs. Penny to their en
tire satisfaction.
In an interview today Mrs. Penny
made the following statement: "We
wish to put the Sixth District Repub
lican Women's club before the pub
lic as an absolutely neutral body and
we want every woman in the district
to feel that no matter what her po
litical attitude may be she is wel
comed to the organization and that
her policies will not be questioned so
long as she is a good Republican
woman.
"We would be glad to receive the
applications for social membership of
women residing in adjacent districts
where there are na organizations."
The next regular meeting will be
held on tile second Tuesday of the
month at the new Sixth District Re
publican club rooms on North Main
street.

NEW TYPE SAM BROWNE.

Washington. Aug. 11. A new type
of Sam Browne belt for wear by
army officers, with two straps, one
over each shoulder has been designed
by the Quartermaster General and
approved by General Pershing. A
war department announcement today
escribed tho belt as having two
straps, removable pistol slides, first
aid pouch, canteen, double magazine
pecket and saber attachment, thus
differening distinctly from "thait now

THREE GENERATIONS PLAYING.
When S. Z. Poli built his summer
castle at Woodmont. just inside the
Dorougn line towards Merwins Beach,
a part of Milford as is Woodmont,
what has been known to old residents
for many years as the "pent" road
was closed up forever as a- through
road, unless the October storms in
years of pounding crumble the Poli
estate to bits.
It is understood that a well high
nigh Impassable road to the rear of
the property was eraded and nut in
first class shape by Poli so that travel
has really progressed through that
part of the borough better than it
ever did. This did not appease the
old timers who liked the idea of re
taining the wagon train along the
beach as it had been ln the days when
the site of the Poll mansion was a
beautiful grove dear to the memories
of many a lad who had camped there
in summers gone by.
The Town or Milford it is believed
did not officially give the permission
to close the road but a sort of gentle
men's agreement prevailed, and since
the Poll estate has been so well kept.
the new road always being ln good
condition, and the Poli property act
ing as a sort of natural boundary
from the Merwln Beach property,
which is of a distinctly different type
from that of Woodmont, opposition to
the matter gradually melted away.
and was scarcely heard of.
Of late years, however, - other
Woodmont property holders have
seemed to think that what is fair for
the goose is fair for the gander, and
at different points strong stone or
concrete sea walls have been built
out, filled in from behind, and lawns
made larger in this manner. Some of
the "land grabs" as described by
many, have withstood the ravages of
the fall storms, but others have not
been so successively and the "back of
nature" movement of the heavy seas
has discouraged the progressive prop
erty holder.
Enough of the walls have held
though to give heart to the occasional
newcomer who has purchased prop
erty. One of the latest to purchase
a beautiful shore front home was J.
Willman, of 16 Fifth street, Derby,
who acquired one of the houses for
years occupied by the family of Dr.
Minshall of Northampton, Mass. He
objected to a point of land on the
property of G. W. Goodsell, and soon
a flock of surveyors brought by him
invaded the beach and their activities
would have made a thorough stranger
think a gold or oil strike was in the
offing.
Evidently unsuccessful in convinc
ing himself that the point of land.
which made the approach to a new
garage difficult, was out of order,
preparations were next made to erect
a retaining wall from the rear of the
property to the beach, seven feet west
of the boundary line, in what the old
timers and some of the newcomers
claim steadfastedly is part of the
original 18 foot "pent" road which
has never been officially done away
with, and which is the only approach
the people living back of the water
front have to the beach in this vicinity.
Opposition to grabbing any more
of tie "pent" road will no doubt be
heavy, and already Dr. M. H. Gill, 73 5
Prospect street, Hartford, a promi
nent specialist with offices in the Con
necticut Mutual building in the Capi
tal City, has offered objections, for
his property lies just the other side of
the "pent" road, and the construction
of the wall brought to the height of
the original Willman property, will
practically cut off his view of the
water. Dr. Gill just a little over a
year ago built a handsome home on
the location, but declares he will pack
up ana move away if he has to con
tend with that sort of neighborliness.
G. W. Goodsell, who originally
owned all of the land at Merwin's
Point, (before any roads other than
the "pent" were even thought of.
and years before the trolleys invaded
the section, is believed to have better
knowledge and better blue .prints,
some made years ago, than even the
present Milford town officials. He is
helping straighten out those who
come to him for advice, as he still
retains a goodly portion of the prop
erty, and he is enjoying the spectacle
for it is evident that some of the
most positive participants in the ar
gument, entered into at several meet
ings attended by many property
owners, are along ways from having
the "up and down" of where lines
should be if they were really where
tney Technically "shouia De. ana
some rather hurried running for cover
and abandoning of "fortifications"
might have to be made if the matter
is not finally settled peacefully to the
satisfaction of all instead of being
taken to the courts, as Dr. Gill may
have to do in an attempt to protect
himself, a "friendly" suit having
been mentioned.
