THE TOWN HALL. To the Editor of the "Advertiser." [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 10 January 1914
TIlE TOWN HALL, To the Editor oi the "Advertiser," Sin,-There neoms to be a very great consternation going on at; the present time among the reaidents of Williams town regarding the proposed now Town Hall. Shall it be ? or Shall it not be ? Personally, I am very much in favor of the enterprise as one means, at least, of ridding the town of the designation it his borne for too long, viz "Sleepy Hollow," Surely it is time that Williamstown arose and shook itself from its sleepy sloth and fossilized ideas, and not everlastingly be pointed at as the moat backward municipality in this Staten, The in concluston mati toat tlts town i, the most out of date, dilapidates municipal ofiices for more than twenty miles around. Surely it cannot but bo seen that the town is in a more prosperous condition than it has over boon in its history. It is high time that the people showed to the world that they possess a spark, if not a flame, ot progressive policy, If we do not show a spirit of advancement...

NAVAL YARDS AND DRY DOCK To the Editor of the "Advertiser." [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 10 January 1914
NAVAL YARDS AND DRY DOCK To the Eiditor of the "Advertiaer.' Sou,-I quite agre, with the opinion Smight b built either innide or outside the Breakwater pier without interfer ing with anything but the time ball tower, and that only in the event of the inward aite being choasn. If the out ward position were selected, a wall might be necessary to protect the dock entrance from south easterly winds, Either alternative would lie prleferable to the demolition of the naval depot and the blocking up of the Nelson place entrance to the piera. As a matter of fact, the cite officially solected for the dry dock will drive the navy out of the town, A. much wiser policy would be to increase the aceom miodation for the navy instead of tak. ing away the small space that is at presont provided, Why not give up the Breakwater pier to the navy and the land abubting on it ? The value of a naval establishment is great; it brings business to sailmakers, black. imiths, bakers, tailors, hotelkeepera and ho...
