Aliens Must Turn In All Firearms

MILLTOWN, May 10-Notices signed by Chief of Police Rupprecht, Sr., have been passed around that all foreign-born persons not citizens of the United Stales must bring all fire- arms to him within twenty-four hours and he will give a receipt for then… Otherwise all firearms found in the possession of non-citizens will be confiscated.

In the Michelin bungalows the other night a Greek attacked a man with a knife, but nothing has been done yet. Leon Van Nuls and Theodore Voorheas, salesmen for the Michelin Tire Co, and residents of New Brunswick, have left their employer to join the army. They expect to be called to Fort Worth for training as officers. Some young men of Milltown are simply waiting for a notice from the government as to when, where and how they are wanted to serve, and they will go immediately.

Silas Grieve has moved from Main street to Hungary Hill and Mr. Titus of New Brunswick is coming to a house on Booream avenue which has just been vacated by Mr. Ward.
