JmKmm^ c »
BURGESS J. FRED HUMMEL
Twenty-five citizens, all property
owners in Wormleysburg, voiced their
sentiments in favor of a new town hall
and fire house at a meeting of the
borough council last evening: following
the reading of a communication from
Burgess J. Fred Hummel in which he
asked that steps be taken to erect a
new building. A committee from the
Are company was also present and
offered to contribute SSOO to the build
ing fund and pay one-half of the in
terest on any bonds which may be
floated. The fire company committee
was composed of George R. Chambers,
chairman, Vernon Kister. E. F. Arney,
Jacob Reigart and J. F. Twigg.
All pf the citizens present were
given a chance to speak on the propo
sition and each speaker stated that he
favored the erection of a new build
ing. After the speechmaking a coun
cil manic committee, composed of L. B.
Wanbaugh, chairman, John K. Neld
liammer and H. M. Smith, was ap
pointed to confer with the lire com
pany committee to ascertain just what
can be done in the matter. The com
mittees will meet within the next two
weeks and if it is possible to erect a
building data will be given the ordi
nance committee of council from
which to draft an ordinance for
presentation at the March meeting of
the borough fathers.

forwarded to council was a progressive
document and received much favor

Wants Transfers Issued
Following close upon the announce
ment that New Cumberland citizens
would petition the Valley Hallways
Company and the Public Service Com
mission to have transfers issued on
the cross river cars, comes a sugges
tion from Burgess Hummel in which
he asks council to take up the matter
for the residents of Wormleysburg. j
He urges the issuing of transfers and
also asks that each car passing
through the borough be taxed.

would be folly to attempt to repair

I realize that the council has not
the funds with which to provide a |
new hall, but I am of the opinion that
some provisions should be made at
once with a view of having a new hall
erected in the near future.
I am informed that the lire com

to co-operate with the council in this
respect and I would suggest that, if I
possible, a special election be held for I
the purpose of affording the citizens
of the borough a chance to vote either
for or against a loan for this purpose.
Revenues. We have ordinances
for the taxation of peddlers, hucksters,
telephone and telegraph poles, etc.,
and it is my conviction that all street
cars passing through the borough
should be taxed, and that bdtter street
car accommodations be granted, and
that the Valley Railways Company be
requested to grant transfers to pas
sengers from this borough to Le
moyne, New Cumberland, etc. It is
an established fact that whenever
there Is anything of interest going on
in Harrisburg it is absolutely impossi
ble for the passengers from this bor
ough to get seats in the cars into the
city, and it is either a case of stand
in a crowded car or walk.
Arrangements should also be made
by which it would be possible to tax all
persons tapping sewers or digging up
the streets for any purpose.
There are many other matters
which will be put forward from time
to time, upon which I will be glad to
communicate with you.
