WILL SHUT UP MILLTOWN TIGHT
BARBERS CAN SHAVE UP TO NOON ON THE SABBATH, BUT MUSTN’T HAVE POOL GAMES RUNNING OTHER STORES MUST CLOSE
DECIDE MAYORALTY VACANCY NEXT WEEK
The Milltown Borough Council last night passed resolutions directing that stores in the borough be closed all day Sunday. The only exception is that barbers may shave their customers up to noon on the Sabbath.
It was declared at the meeting, however, that some of the barbers have been having pool games in their places on Sunday. The action of the council specifically orders that this be ceased. As it stands now, nothing but a shave can be purchased in Milltown on the Sabbath.
The council also considered the matter of having marshals patrol Milltown day and night and to this end appointed two new marshals, John Neidlinger and Henry Dupress.
Borough Council Frederick Weigel rendered an opinion concerning the Mayoralty vacancy caused by the death of Joseph Crabiel. He held that the borough council has a right to fill such vacancy. A special meeting of the council will be held next week to select a Mayor. The present acting Mayor is Spencer Perry, president of the council.
A number of bills were ordered paid last night. All the members were present.
