George Fanjoy, who was caretaker of the South Shore Yacht Club last summer, was held in $500 bail by Jus¬ tice Gittens Saturday, for action of the Grand Jury, on a charge of assault in the second degree, preferred by John Bedell of Balwdin, whom Fanjoy struck with his police club.

Tbe man who shot him, Jesse Ullman, was held for the Grand Jury, and discharged, ic bejng..decided that he thought young Seaman a burglar.

A visitor at the Village Board meet- I ing last Friday evening voiced the gen¬ eral sentiment of appreciation of the work of the Trustees when in reply to I President Morrison's (juery if he wished to address the Board he said, "I have nothing to 'say—-well satisfied, thank you. Everything is going lovely up our way." The Brooklvn Eagle calls attention to the price of about .S280 per foot paid byC. A. Sigmond on Main St., as being the highest paid for projierty in Freeport and comments further: "About ten years ago the same lot was offered for iJIiO per front foot." Their statement is near enough right but being more specific seven years ago the lot was on the market at $30 per foot., The Times says a meeting to discuss inland waterways had been "called" ¦ for Saturday night. We should sa^ it j had been whispered.' This is an im- j portant project in which we are all in- ¦ terested but the matter has not been properly advertised and the hall will probably not be overcrowded. Let everyone who has not at this late date made other plans for tomorrow night attend this meeting and help along the j good work. Those booming this af-1 fair are good men but they apparently ned to employ an advertising agent. There is no question about-the need of an up-to-date fire alarm system in Freeport. The committee of the tire council has boen considering a 2()-box call system; they want to change their plans so as to include at least 50 boxes. A system if installed should include rhe whole village if the whole village is lo be asked to pay for it, and no other l)lan should be considered. The people are ready to vote for* i fire alarm sys¬ tem but when they do they all want the advantage of it; not to be asked to pay for installing the system only for the benefit^f the thickest settled districts. The committee need not be bashful-- Freeport hus never yet rcfusod any¬ thing needed for its fin? dcpart:ncnt. Ciiving because a man or woman begs of you on the streets is not neces¬ sarily a charity, and is more often en¬ couraging laziness, or beggary as a business. The Brooklyn Times makes the following terse comment on this subject: "Let us bear in mind that this is the season of the year when "fake" beg¬ gars swarm the streets. From Thanks¬ giving to Christmas thu popular mind is supposed to be more responsible to charitable requests. As a result, sly gentlemen and ladies, with all sorts of appeals, are trying to prey upon the public. It is best to bear in mind that thin city is full of charity organiza¬ tions which need all the contributions that the people of this city can afford to give away. They work systematical¬ ly And help only the deserving. He who begs because he can live better and more sumptuously timt way than by la¬ boring, will not be among those aided by such societies. He who gives at random upon the streets usually gives to unworthy causea." lynbrook; . Under the auspices of Fidelity Lodge, No. 46. I. O. G. T., a grand bazaar will be held in the chapel of the St. James M. E. Church on Friday and Saturday of this week. Homemade food and candies, as well as ice cream and fancy articles, will be offered for sale. Through the crashing through of the timbers on the Atlantic Avenue cross¬ ing of the Long IsLind Railroad by the passage thereover of a large steam trencher or steam -trench filler owned by the T. A. Gillespie Company, all traffic on both tracks of the Long Island Railroad was stalled from 4.00 to 0.00 p. m., Saturday afternoon. The T. A. Gillespie Company have a number of heavy steam trenchers and steam trench fillers engaged in their work of laying the 72-inch conduit for the City of .Mew Vork. These trench¬ ers are rjf massiup construction and weigh probably about a hundred tons each. When the trench filler engaged at LynPirook iiad completed its work it was desired to remove it to another section of the work and the machine was propelled by its own power along its route, which took it across the rail¬ road tracks at the Atlantic .Avenue crossing. Just as the jionderous ma¬ chine had reached about the centre of both east and west-bound tracks, the weight of the machine caused its wheels to sink through the iieavy tim¬ bers of which the crossing is construct¬ ed. Every effort was made to remove the obstacle without avail, and all approaching trains were stalled at this point so that all ci^sterly villages were unable to receive their favorite evening paper until long after 6 o'clock. After every effort had failed to re¬ move the steam trench tiller, a number of hydraulic jacks wer« procured and the machine elevated sufficiently to permit the insertion of a number of heavy timbers of whicii a crossing was constructed before it was possible for the machine to proceed. age about 11000.
