(To the Editor of the "Advertiser.") [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 25 April 1914
(To the Editor of the "Advertiser,") Sit,--It is certainly amusing and, in a measure, a wasteof time to read over some of the twaddle that is made use of during the the discussions at the Council table on the " I?yrning" questions of Town Hall and Council Chambers. Some of the actions taken by some of our Town fathers and others outside certainly reminds me of the action of Mrs, Partington, who took a broom to keep the ocean back so that the progress of the tide may be retarded. Are those building speculators afraid that the waste places will all be covered up and leave them no room for engaging in " run emr-up" operations ? I have always thought that there are too many bare places in our midst that require to lie covered up for the benefit of the consiunity. If one of the members for the South ward makes as many mistakes in the rostrullm as he does at the Council table, I am sure that I, for one, would be very loath to risk myself to his guidance as a sky pilot to the upper and bIe...
