to Vote on Treasury
Borough Debt.
Philipsburg’s council and burgess
Todd are at loggerheads over a pro-
posal to increase the borough debt by
$30,000. The new obligation is to be
taken on for purposes of street pav-
ing and the ordinance has set Tues-
day, June 19th, as the date for a spe-
cial election to authorize or reject the
The burgess vetoed the resclution
of council on the ground that there
were other and much more needed im-
provements imperative and that the
one proposed was too restricted to
serve any great purpose for the town
as a whole. Council passed the meas-
ure over his veto by a vote of 8 to 1
and it remains to be seen what the
voters of Philipsburg will say when
they get their chance to pass on it at
the polls on June 19th.
One point touched on by burgess
Todd in his veto message, seems to us
to have had considerable merit and
might well have been givén serious
consideration. We refer to the fact
that the paving proposed is for only
thirty-five feet in width. In these
days of motor transportation, and con-
gestion due to parking, thirty-five feet
looks very narrow, indeed for a city
street, unless the section is in a resi-
dential portion where traffic is light.
Philipsburg is at a disadvantage to-
day because of narrow streets. Front
street, her principal business thor-
oughfare, is congested all of the time
and we should think its condition,
which is irreparable of course, would
cause her council to ponder seriously
any paving program that might make
a recurrence of that municipal misfor-
tune possible.
Snow Shee Hangs up Another Record.
Snow Shoe has just ‘won the honor
of being the first town in Pennsylva-
nia to double its quota of contributions
to the State College emergency build-
ing fund. Just as Snow Shoe was the
first town in the State to go over the
top in the second Liberty loan drive
several years ago, this village of less
than 600 population has established
another enviable record.
“Jack” White, the State College
professor of agronomy who conducts
the college experiments on the Snow
Shoe experiment farm, visited the
town for the third time last week and
received additional pledges that bring
the town total up to the sum of $4007.
He had set the quota at $2,000 and
many weeks ago had secured that
amount. He then went after the
State record and got it. Only thirty
people were solicited but twenty-seven
of them gave pledges averaging al-
most $150 each.
If the residents of a city like Read-
ing gave in proportion, “Jack” says
that the $2,000,000 college campaign
would go over the top without difficul-
ty. Every employee in the offices of
the railroad and all those in the offices
of the Lehigh Valley Coal company
contributed to the fund. The Cherry
Run Coal company, owned by the Kel-
ley brothers, not only contributed
handsomely to the fund but gave
“Jack” the glad news that they would
give the College a twenty-year lease
on the land occupied by the College
experiment plots, paying the taxes on
the property. The plots occupy a nine
acre tract. The Moravian Coal Co.,
also contributed handsomely.
Snow Shoe’s record of support for
Penn State is all the more remarka-
ble when it is realized that there is
only one State College alumnus in the
district. Still more remarkable is the
fact that the total raised for the col-
lege fund in Snow Shoe now exceeds
the total amount contributed by res-
idents of twenty-nine Pennsylvania
counties. Centre county still leads all
other counties in the State with a to-
tal of $108,000 pledged. Bellefonte
has raised $8731 towards it quota of
$10,000. The fund has reached the
$1,225,000 mark.

HEISLER. — Charles
died at his home on south Thomas
street shortly after eight o'clock ou
Saturday evening, following an ili-
ness of more than five years with
asthma and other complications, al-
though he had only been confined to
his home the past few months.
He was born in Mt. Holly, N. J., in
1850, hence was in his seventy-third
year. His boyhood life was spent in
the town of his birth but when he
grew to manhood he went to Philadel-
phia where he remained a few years,
coming to Bellefonte in 1874 as a
stone cutter in the marble yard then
conducted by a Mr. Williams. Sev-
eral years later he purchased the yard
and conducted it himself. In course
of time the confinement began to im-
pair his health and he sold his busi-
ness and thereafter devoted his time
to stone cutting, at which he was an
expert. Six years or more ago his
health failed and since that time his
activities had been devoted chiefly to
the real estate business. Several
years ago he was appointed a tipstaff
in the Centre county court by Judge
Quigley, a position he filled until his
death. He was a member of the Lo-
gan fire company for many years.
In October, 1874, six months after
coming to Bellefonte, he married Miss
Clara S. Bartley, of Bellefonte. Three
children were the result of their un-
ion, Lorie, killed in an accident at the
age of fourteen years; George, who
died when four years old, and Frank,
who lived but six months, so that his
only survivor is his wife.
Funeral services were held at his
late home at two o’clock on Tuesday
afternoon by Rev. E. E. McKelvey,
after which burial was made in the
Union cemetery.

burg, as the result of a stroke of par-
alysis sustained the Tuesday previous.

and she was born in Pennsvalley sev-
enty-two years ago. After her mar-
riage to Mr. Heckman they located on
a farm in Buffalo Run valley where
they lived until Mr. Heckman’s elec-
tion as County Commissioner some
twenty years or more ago, when they
moved to Bellefonte. Mr. Heckman
died about seven years ago and two
years later Mrs. Heckman gave up
housekeeping and since that time had
been making her home with her
daughter most of the time, spendirg
a portion of the summer in Bellefonte.
She was a life-long member of the Re-
formed church and during her active
life always a regular attendant.

Tuesday at the home of his parents, |
Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Royer, at Blooms-
dorf, as the result of c\ ailment diag-
nosed as sleeping sickness. The young
man was in his third year as a stu-
dent at Penn State and became ill dur-
ing the Easter vacation of last year.
Failing to respond to the treatment of
local physicians he was taken to the
Jefferson hospital, Philadelphia, where
he spent some weeks, and where his
ailment was diagnosed as sleeping
cickness. He was finally taken home
and though everything possible was
done he gradually grew worse and
had been confined to bed since Febru-
ary of this year.
A son of Elmer E. and Annie Bloom
Royer he was born at Pine Hall on
September 12th, 1898, hence was in
his twenty-fifth year. He was an hon-

exceedingly bright and intelligent
young man.

Hugh E. Hale, of New York. The re-
mains were taken to Reading where

Many of the “Watchman” readers
who did not know Mrs. Hale will have
a sense of sorrow at the passing when
they realize that she was the author
of the. lovely little stories of youth
that appeared in this paper several
years ago.

Clearfield County Child Kiiled by
| State College Motorist.
| Annie Lorraine Freeman, five year
jold daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Van
| Freeman, of, Stronach, near Grampian,
I Clearfield county, was almost instant-
‘1y killed last Friday afternoon by be-
‘ing hit by a seven passenger Cadillac
| car driven by Charles H. Tressler, of
| State College. Eye witnesses of the
accident exonerated the driver from
‘all blame.
He was on his way home from a trip
to Brookville, Jefferson county, and
iin the vicinity of Stronach the little
Freeman girl ran out from be-
hind a rural mail carrier's car
right in front of Tressler’s car.
The latter was going only at a
moderate speed and swerved his
car as quickly as possible but the
fender of the car struck the child on
the head, crushing her skull. Mr.
Tressler stopped his car within thirty
feet and assisted in carrying the lit-
tle one to the home of her parents,
some two hundred feet distant, but
she died before the house was reached.
Mr. Tressler promptly gave himself
up to the authorities but after a com-
plete examination into the facts sur-
rounding the accident, he was exoner-
ated from all responsibility and allow-
led to proceed on his way. Notwith-
| standing this fact he was greatly dis-
| tressed over the unfortunate affair.

of an atraction on Monday evening for
the members of Bellefonte borough
council as not enough of them could
ibe found to make a quorum, so no
‘meeting was held.

A day apart from all others than
Christmas, that those who sense the

is Taxed in Chicago |
| Chicago Heights is a suburb of Chi-
‘cago. It is a corporate municipality,
"however, with a population of 19,000
and lays its own local taxes. And a
perusal of the Star, of that city, in
which a list of the objects taxable is
published, convinces us that the Belle-
fonte councilmen would be drawn and
quartered if they were even to dream
of doing what those of Chicago
Heights do. Merle M. Wetzel, a son of
the late Oscar Wetzel, of this place,
who is with the Public Service compa-
ny, of Northern Illinois, writes in
wonderment as to what his old home
town merchants would do if they had
to pay taxes like these.
