^ Nassau County Review Offidsl Pkv«r. Vibge of Freeport FREEPORT, N. Y., FRIDAY, MARCH 26. 1920 VoL XXm, No. 13 Edwards III—Qaeetions Laid Over It was expected that there would be some fireworks at the meeting of the new Village Board of Trustees Monday evening, but because of the absence of the new President, Clarence A Edwards, who was home ill with the measles, the display was post¬ poned. Preaident-elect Edwards, who was awom in by Village jClerk Sylvester P. Shea at his home, sent a letter to ..le Board in which he said the re¬ tiring Board of Trustees had "truly nasked the buck"* to the incoming bobrd. President Anderson, he said in his Jetter, had told him three months ago, that it was absolutely necessary to spend about $7.5,000 in bringing the electric light plant up to date, and he regretted the preceeding board had not had the foresight to plan for the necessary funds by putting such a proposition on the ballot at the an¬ nual election. He alpo spoke of the small amount placed in the road fund by the pre¬ vioua board, which would be insuf¬ ficient for the needs of the village par¬ ticularly in view of the havoc wrought by the snows of the winter and the deep cuta in the roads. Trustee Max¬ aon said it was not true as stated iii the Nassau County Review that the incoming board could not increase thia amount and he was in favor of putting in any sum needed to get the roads in ship?, makirtg^ it $20,000 even if that ¦ vount was necessary. Regarding the lease for the park property on East Merrick Road, Presi¬ dent Edwards wrote, he had been un¬ able to examine the lease. He spoke of the item in the Review speaking of the necessity for a special election to vote on this and said that if this ¦were necessary he regretted the pre¬ ceding Board had not done this, as he •was sure the people of the village wiHild vote In favor of making any eSkirts'to cancel the lease. (Such a ronhit'on whs passed in 1918, but is oT DU value because it provides for procuring the cancella¬ tion of the lease without expense to the village, which on its face includea expenses of attorneys in any proceed¬ ing that might be brought. It would still seem that the procedure neces¬ sary is to see what terms can be made, if any, with the city, and then have the voters ratify the definite proposi¬ tion. The lease has two years more to run, but the rent is two or three years overdue.—Kditor.) The president's recommendations ac to employees and their bonds were carried out as follows: Village Clerk, Sylvt.iter P. Shea, reappointed. Deputy Village Clerk, Mias Evely.i K. Bedell, reappointed. Meter Reader, Henry E. Rider, re¬ appointed. Bond of each fixe<l at $500. Clinton M. Flint reappointed village attomey. Appointments of road commission¬ er, police nnd other employees laid over. Mr. Kdwards recommended that the bonds of the treasurer and collector be with some approved surety com¬ pany if nnt otherwise required by law. Those bonds have always been given by friends of the officers a'nd the board rather hesitated about in¬ curring the extra expense tvithout knowinj^ Mr. Edwards reasons, and made temporary designations of the amomits, $25,000 for the Treasurer, and $5,000 for the collector, wUh sureties as heretofore. , Mr. Edwards recommended that D. Frank Seanian be engaged at » per diem compensation, as clerk foV the Board of Assessors, and that Trustee Williams be requested to supervise the work. This too waa laid over till Mr. Eldwards was able to ait with the Board. Trustee Maxson said he would like to see the retiring Trustee, Mr. Bedell, who had done .so much of the work, ffivk' the Board the benefit of his experience in some way, altho bo was not questioning the qualifications of Mr. Seaman. Trustee Willian^s thought this waa up to the President. James R. Smith tvas reappointed hydrant inspector. The three local bintts. were, official¬ ly designated to receive villuge fuftds, the amounts to be desijinated by the Board. The Nassau County Review was designated as official papiT. Trustee Maxson brouuhi up the question of improvements 'ui street lighting, and expressed himself in favor of spending $4,000 or $5,000 if necesaarj* in order to make required changes in the wiring and lamp ar¬ rangements. We must, .said Mr. Max¬ aon, keep our village -up to date, and in order to do that wc must keep our streets well lighted. A, regulnr resoIvUion wa? passed empowering the President to si<n warrants for salaries for villajre em¬ ployees, semi-monthly.

Not one child of 112 raised a hand. How many of you ever saw your father read the Bible or pray? Not a single hand went up. By this time my spirit was sore depresst as I asked how many of you ever saw your mother pray and read the Bible? I waited anxiously for the reply. Seventeen hands went up out of the whole number in that Sunday School. What kind of material will Christ and His Church find in members, if the date to be announced later.

Credit Where Due It is a fitting time, as a new Boar 1 of Village Fathers take hold, to speak of the record of Robert (J. Anderson, as Villajrc President, and the retirin'r members of the Board, John H. Mahnken and Franklin Bedell. Hav¬ ing control of affairs in the village during the strenuous war times and conditions, taxes were kept down and a business-like and economical admin¬ istration given. To be sure, some of us find fault with the things some¬ times done, but the writer has attend¬ ed the meeting of the Board rcKularly and has always been inipre.ssed with the fact that the Board was doing its best—and that p commendable best for the Village of Freeport. Can You Beat It? After all the snow and mud and rain the firemen get a Sunday after¬ noon call to put out a grass fire! Later.—And on^ every few hours sivice. Times and Weather Perhaps we are "out of the woods" so far as rough weather is concerned for this year—everybody hopes so un¬ animously, but lest we forget, t>^o memos from our Weekly Weather re¬ port : 1916—March 23, Carting snow off Main Street. 1919—March 28, began to rain yes¬ terday aftemoon, and rained hard at nighc, turned to snow during the af- terao€>n and blew up very cold, a real winter storm and gale, continuing all thru the'aftemoon and late into the night.

Edwards III—Qaeetions Laid Over
It was expected that there would be some fireworks at the meeting of the new Village Board of Trustees Monday evening, but because of the absence of the new President, Clarence A Edwards, who was home ill with the measles, the display was post¬ poned.
Preaident-elect Edwards, who was awom in by Village jClerk Sylvester P. Shea at his home, sent a letter to ..le Board in which he said the re¬ tiring Board of Trustees had "truly nasked the buck"* to the incoming bobrd. President Anderson, he said in his Jetter, had told him three months ago, that it was absolutely necessary to spend about $7.5,000 in bringing the electric light plant up to date, and he regretted the preceeding board had not had the foresight to plan for the necessary funds by putting such a proposition on the ballot at the an¬ nual election.
He alpo spoke of the small amount placed in the road fund by the pre¬ vioua board, which would be insuf¬ ficient for the needs of the village par¬ ticularly in view of the havoc wrought by the snows of the winter and the deep cuta in the roads. Trustee Max¬ aon said it was not true as stated iii the Nassau County Review that the incoming board could not increase thia amount and he was in favor of putting in any sum needed to get the roads in ship?, makirtg^ it $20,000 even if that ¦ vount was necessary.
Regarding the lease for the park property on East Merrick Road, Presi¬ dent Edwards wrote, he had been un¬ able to examine the lease. He spoke of the item in the Review speaking of the necessity for a special election to vote on this and said that if this ¦were necessary he regretted the pre¬ ceding Board had not done this, as he •was sure the people of the village wiHild vote In favor of making any eSkirts'to cancel the lease.
(Such a ronhit'on whs passed in 1918, but is oT DU value because it provides for procuring the cancella¬ tion of the lease without expense to the village, which on its face includea expenses of attorneys in any proceed¬ ing that might be brought. It would still seem that the procedure neces¬ sary is to see what terms can be made, if any, with the city, and then have the voters ratify the definite proposi¬ tion. The lease has two years more to run, but the rent is two or three years overdue.—Kditor.)
