Will Open for Business in the Hand-
somely Remodeled Structure
Alinost nine months tc the day
“rom the time the Bellefonte Trust
company was moved out of its old lo-
cation on the southeast corner of the
Diamond for the purpcse of remodel-
ing the building it will be back at the
old stand doing business as of yore.
To be cxact the banking equipment
was moved on Good Friday (March
* 25th) to the Harter building on the
north side of the court house yard and
tomorrow morning, December 24th,
the handsomely remodeled building
will be thrown open to the pubiic.
For a year or more prior to the act-
ual start of the work the Trust com-
‘pany officials had been considering the
question of remodeling their building.
The old banking quarters were too
small and in order to spread out it
was necessary to take in the adjoin-
ing room. Plans were submitted by
New York archiccts but they were not
considered available. Dennison &
Yirons, of New York, whose specialty
is bank architecture, were invited to
submit plans and were admonished to
conform to no particular style.
what was desired more than anything
else was an interior that would be
simple, attractive and impressive. The |
plans were submitted and approved, |
contract for remodeling the
awarded to the Shamokin
Lumber and Construction
william Snyder, the man who erccted
the Bellefonte silk mill, was placed in
and the
. building
| charge of the work and it was hoped |
at the time to have the job done in six
months, but unusual delay in receiv-
ing material {or the interior equip-
{ ment caused a delay of three months.
: But now that the building is com-
pleted it is a credit to Bellefonte. In
fact it is a modern
small scale, and when
there tomorrow morning to transact
business they will be pleasantly sur-
prised at what has been accoraplish-
! ed.
| Entering the bank through the
large double plate glass doors on Al-
legheny street the visitor will pass
! through a spacious entrance hall cov-
! ered with a heavy rubber mat to the
main lobby, where he cannot help but
bz impressed with the spaciousness of
he building. At the right of the en-
trance hall is the ladies room, with
lavatory attached. To the left of the

joining the secretary’s office and in
ident’s office. The principal working
space is along the north side of the
bank, while in the northeast corner is
the beok-keeving machine rcom.
There are seven windows for pa-
| trons of the institution. The window
nearest the secretary and treasurer’s
i office is marked “notes.” Next in or-
der are two teller’s windows, then a
savings window, ali on the north side.
Around the corner on the cast are
comes a small room for lady patrons
with a window marked ladies teller.
On the south side of the room, in the
' rear of the lobby, is a small rooin
which is for the use of the public in

The safety deposit part of the vault is
divided from that portion of the vault
where the banks money, securities,
| etc., are stored by a heavy grill door,
while in the rear of the vault is a full
\ length mirror, which enables the bank
l officials to see all that is going on in-
| side.
| The intericr of the room is finished
| with a block effect in three shades of
| gray, with spacious panels which bear
| out the effect of the large windows.
The floor of the lobby is of pink Ten-
nessee marble while the partition be-
tween the lobby and main banking
room is of Tavernelle (Italian) mar-
ble surmounted by heavy bronze. All
the grill work is bronze. The doors,
desks and all the woodwork used in
the interior finishing is solid mahog-
any. Over the vault and machine
also furnished quite luxuriously.
Alongside the main vault is a small-
| bank’s bocks. Both vaults extend to
| the basement and these lower vaults
i will be used for storing bank records,

about as complete as the banking
room. In the front to the right is lo-
cated the big heating plant, while un-
der the corner of the bank is the coal
room, large enough to house a carload
of coal. Leading out from the front
of the heating plant is a spacious al-
| leyway for taking out the ashes. This
alleyway opens on High street and an
automatic lift will be put there to
hoist the ashes out. A fireproof door
| divides the boiler room fiom the east-

a large room which has not been de-
signed for any special purpose. In

One thing that especially impress-
i ed the writer is that every arrange-
ment has been made for the comfort,
convenience and efficiency of the em-
i ployees of the bank. At every win- |
| dow is a large money drawer, as well
: as other drawers and bookrack. The
lighting system is also the most up- |
| to-date that could be desired, as all |
; the lights at the counter and on desks
{are thoroughly screened so that the
; workers will not be blinded by the di-
| rect glare. Draperies have been hung
iat all the windows which can be op-
| erated either up and down or from
| the centre out.
Of course the bank is equipped with
{a burglar alarm system, complete in
I every detail. A telephone system has
| also been installed so that the secre-
| tary and treasurer can communicate
to any one in the bank from his desk.
{ A monster clock hangs in the direec-

{ clock over the main vault and also
| one to be placed in the wall on the

i clock will be the words “The Belle-
‘ fonte Trust Co.,” in letters seven inch-
es high.
As stated at the beginning of this
article the Shamokin Lumber and
Construction company had entire
charge of the work of remodeling.
' The marble was furnished by the B.
L. Marble Co. The interior furnish-
i ings were the product of the Taylor-
Palmer Co., of Milwaukee, Mich. The
heating and plumbing was done by C.
F. Tate, of Bellefonte. The painting
by A. L. McGinley. The electric work
by R. C. Witmer while the furniture
was supplied by F. E. Naginey.
The Bellefonte Trust company has
a capitalization of $125,000, with sux-

Two Foreigners, Three Stills, Twen-
ty-three Barrels of Mash and
Fifty-six Bottles Among
the Loot.
The most complete moonshiner’s
outfit so far recorded in this section
of the State was captured on Monday
morning by state policemen Crouch
i and Hughes, of State College, and
Cain, of Hollidaysburg, in a house on
the Bigelow farm, three miles west
of Port Matilda on the road to Phil-
ipsburg. Two foreigners who gave
their names as Paul Cicivich and
John Cracey, were caught red-handed,
making moonshine whiskey. The out-
fit included three fifty gallon stills,
oil stoves on which the mash was
cooked, twenty-three barrels of mash,
fifty-six bottles of whiskey, some of
it labelled “Golden Wedding” and
stamped with labels marked “bottled
in spring of 1902.” The outfit also in-
cluded an up-to-date rectifying and
blending process. The moonshine as
it came from the still was 130 proof
but was reduced to 100 proof by the
addition of distilled water, put
through the rectifying process and
blended through a charcoal filter.
For some time past the state police
have had knowledge that a big plant
was being operated up in that section
of the county but were never able to
locate it. On Monday morning they
went to that locality determined to
make a thorough search and in doing
so just happened to visit the house
where the still was located. The two
men in charge offered no resistance,
but maintained that they were not the
principals in the business. They de-
clared that the plant was owned by
two men and they were simply work-
ing for them. They also declared that
they did not know the real names of
the owners or where they lived.
They were known to them as
“Cash” and “Carry.” The foreigners
manufactured the whiskey and Cash
and Carry marketed the same and
paid them for their work. According
to the state police the moonshine was
made from rye mash and looked to be
of a superior quality. It is somewhat
lighter in color than the real stuff.
The twenty-three barrels of mash
were destroyed but all the rest of the
outfit was confiscated and, with the
two foreigners brought to Bellefonte
and locked up in the Centre county
jail. Efforts are now being made to
discover the real identity of Cash and
Carry. .
A rather amusing incident transpir-
ed just about the time the officers
were ready to leave for Bellefonte
with their loot. A man whose name
has not been made public appeared at
the house with a rooster under his
arm. He was at first believed to be
implicated in running the moonshine
plant but stoutly denied the implica-
tion, stating that he had come there
to trade his rooster on some moon-
shine whiskey.
Terrific Storm Saturday Night.
One of the fiercest wind and rain
storms, accompanied by rolling thun-
der, ever known at this time of year,
occurred shortly before two o'clock
on Sunday morning. The strong wind
blew in one of the large plate glass
windows in Lyon & Co’s store, shat-
tering it into fragments. A window
was also broken in the High school
building. Several panels of the high
board fence surrounding Hughes field
were blown down and dead limbs were
torn from various trees in Bellefonte.
Several store awnings were badly
torn and a strip of the cornice and
roof were torn from the Bush house.
Out at Dr. Kirk’s farm a small por-
tion of the roof was torn from the
Over at Centre Hall the wind tore a
portion of the roof off of the house
occupied by the miller at Bradford &
Son’s mill; tore the roof from the big
coal shed of Bradford & Son, the tim-
bers being carried across the street
knocking part of the cornice off of G.
O. Benner’s house and breaking the
windows in Clyde Bradford’s house.
The entire top, roof, timbers and all,
was torn from Will Odenkirk’s barn.
A threshing machine was in the barn
floor and Mr. Odenkirk candidly be-
lieves that the weight of the machine
kept the barn from blowing away.
