a cleaner tyler
say the officials
A number of city officials are deter-
mined to have a cleaner Tyler. Mar-
shall Burgess stated to a Courler-
Tlmes man this morning that he was
going to file a complaint against any
person or persons found tacking up
or distributing large poster circulars
with any kind of advertising matter on
Bame, as the act Is In direct violation
of the City Trash Ordinance.
At this time there are a number of
sales being held by the different mer-
chants and thousands or circulars
have been ristributed over tho city. A3
far as we know, the trash ordinance is
being conformed with in every re-
6'pect, except in the tacking of circu-
lars on posta.

We are informed that cards will
soon 'be out announcing the marriage
of Mr. Charles Herndon, formerly of
this city, ibut now of Kansas City, to
Mls'á Agnes Bruiner. also of Kansas
The many friends of Mr. Herndon
in this city will heartily join the CouV-
ier-Tlmes in offering congratulations
in advance. While Mr. Herndon has
been a resident of Kansas City a
short time, Tyler still "claims him as
her own." And while he Is to ' marry
and settle down" in Kansas City, it is
hoped that it will not be long until
Mr. Herndon will return with his bon-
nie bride to his home in Tyler.
alderman goodman makes a
statement adout the trash
Alderman Goodman authorizes the
"In an article published by Dr. D.
H. Connally, City Health Officer, in
a recent iasue of the Courier-Times, I
notice the following-
"Place your tin cans and other ves-
sels that, will hold water on the .side-
walk in a pile and notify Mr. Reagan
and he will have them hauled off."'
In connection with this I desire to
state that it is In strict violation of
the recent trash ordinance passed by
the City Council, for anyone to place
tin cans, trash, refuse matter or any-
thing else in any position where same
may be blown, or in any other manner
carried Into any sewer, gutter, street
or alley within the corporate limits of
the city of Tyler.
I feel sure thnt Dr. Connally did not
consider the fat that we have only
one trash wagon, also the large araount
U tin cans as well as other refuse
matter that this one wagon is forced
to handle, and also that in a number
of cases, where large lots of cans, bot-
tles, etc.. have accumulated aixnrad
residences, It would be impossible for
our one trasdi wagon to haul off all of
«uch refuse material promptly, and
that in all probability some of our
sidewalks would be almost blocked or
obstructed with tin cans, 'bottles, etc.
As chairman of the street sewerage
and sanitary committee, I have been
diligently fighting the placing of any
kind! of refuse material or any other
thing upon the sidewalk , or in streets
or alleys, and the entire police depart-
ment have instructions to rigidly en-
force the new ordinance by arresting
anyone who places anything in or up-
on any stree, alley or sidewalk in Ty-
This is not written through any
disrespect to Dr. Connally, but on ac-
count of an oversight on his part, he
made an error in asking that citizens
place refuse matter in piles 011 side-
walks, This is a violation of the or-
dinance, and anyone placing any kind
of refuse material such as tin cans,
bottles, grass, shavings, shucks, or any
other thing upon the sidewalk, In
streets or alleys, will be subject to
Place your trash, tin cans, ibottlea
or any other refuse matter in a barrel
box or other container on your own
property convenient for the trash
wagon to get It, and sarnie will be
hauled1 off by the city's trash wagon
as coon as we can get around to youi
When you cut grass or weeds on
your sidewalk, do not pile same into
any street or alley to be hauled later,
but iplOce same on your premises. Do
not place or burn anything in the
street or alleys.

Chairman Committee on Streets,

Last night the Volifnteer Firemen
held their regular monthly meeting at
their rooms at the City Hall. Besides
the regular routine of business there
was only one important matter that
came beforethe meeting, and that
was the appointment of com>r."lttees

Club in the assisting of entertaining

Percey V. Gaston was elected to
membership of the department.
We take pleasure in recommending Judge S. A. Lindsey
to the voters of this district as a most suitable man to repre-
sent them in Congress for the short term occasioned by the
resignation of Judge Russell. We have known Judge Lindsey
since he was a boy, and have watched with pleasure and pride
his progress from obscurity to the position he now holds.
Left an orphan when a little fellow, he has from an early age
been forced to support himself. He worked on farms in this
and Henderson counties for several years for the purpose of
making the money to support and educate himself. He after-
ward attended the Omen school under Prof. Orr and graduated
from that institution with honor. He then took up the voca-
tion of a teacher and was most successful. After teaching in
this county for several years he bagan the study of law and
was granted his license to practiceos profession by the Dis-
trict Court of this councy. He is a most successful practi-
tioner of law and his worth and ability are recognized by all
who knowhim well. He represented this coun'ty in the legis-
lature when a young lawyer and his services were most accept-
able to his constituents. He was afterwards elected County
Judge, and after serving two terms voluntarily retired. The
business methods put on foot by him in the administration of
this office were successful in every way. While it is true that
he is a man of some means at this time he has acquired every
dollar of it honestly and by hard and persistent effort on his
part. His selection to represent this district would be a de-
served compliment to a trustworthy and deserving citizen.
