THE JOURNAL AND REPUBLICAN, LOWVILLE, N. Y., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1,1928. If- 1 I COOL1DGE PROCLAIMS DAY OF THANKSGIVING Calls Upon People to Offer Thanks for Prosperity and Peaod Which Have Existed During Past Year. President Coolldge has issued his annual Thanksgiving proclamation by calling upon the people to offer thanks on Thursday, November 29, for pros- perity in agriculture, industry and commerce, and for the peace which has existed in the last year. The proclamation says the country as a whole has been protected against pestilence and disaster and has been directed in the way of national pros- perity. It follows: \By the President of the United States, a proclamation: \The season again approaches when it has been the custom for gen- erations to set apart a day of thanks- giving for the blessings which the giver of all good and perfect gifts has bestowed upon us during the year. It s moat becoming that we should do this, for the goodness and mercy of God which has followed us through the year deserve Our grateful recog- nition and acknowledgment. \Through his divine favor, peace and tranquility have reigned through- out the land. He has protected our country as a whole against pestilence and disaster and has directed us in the way of national prosperity. Our fields have been abundantly produc- tive; our Industries have flourished; our commerce has increased; wages have been lucrative and contentment has followed the undisturbed pursuit of honest toil. \As we have prospered in material things* so have we also grown and ex- panded in things spiritual. Through divine inspiration we have enlarged our charities and our missions; we have been imbued with high ideals which have operated for the benefit of the world and the promotion of the brotherhood of man through peace and good will. \Wherefore I, Calvin Coolldge. President of the United States, do hereby set apart Thursday, the 29th \day of November next \as a day \of general thanksgiving and prayer, and I recommend that on that day the people shall cease from their daily work and in their homes anil in their accustomed places of worship de- voutly give thanks to the Almighty for the many and great blessings thoy have received, and seek his ruidanco that they may deserve a continuance of his favor. \In witness whereof I have here- unto set my hand and caused to be affixed the great seal of the United States. \Done at the city of Washington, this 23d day of October, in the year of Our Lord one thousand nine hun- dred and twenty-eight, and of the in- dependence of the United States, the one hundred and fifty-third. ' \Calvin Coolidge.\ \By the President: \Frank B. Kellopsr, Secretary of State.\ WHAT OTTINGER HAS DONE (Syracuse Post-Standard, Tuesday, October 2, 1928.) To the Editor of The Post-Standard: What has Albert Ottinger done as attorney-general of New York state which recommends him for governor beyond that which any attorney- general does? Syracusan. Mr. Ottinger has done the routine work of his office very satisfactorily. Beyond the mere routine, however, he has prosecuted loan sharks; he has administered vigorously the working- men's compensation law; and he has efficiently enforced in all departments under his Jurisdiction the laws on the books, some of which he recommend- ed should be placed on the books. The total of proceedings and Inquiries he has conducted has been about 60,000. His saving to the people of the state through his inquiries'and prosecutions has run into hundreds of millions. He went after the stock fraud oper- ators. He divided the state into zones and took the testimony,of 15,000 peo- ple. Ho jailed a number of notorious swindlers. He closed one stock ex- change in New York. He conducted a series of raids on bucket shops in all the larger cities, the effect of which was permanently to suppress their form of swindle. Ottinger's investigation of invest- ment trusts revealed the rapid growth in the United States of this new form of financial enterprise and exposed weaknesses which he seeks to have eliminated by legislative action. These trusts have a paid-in capital in this country 61 a billion dollars. A survey he issued in printed form has been adopted by the National ^Association of Securities commissioners. He also investigated the subject of real estate mortgage bonds, and formulated regu- lations to coircct ^improper practices. The culmination of his light to make the Martin anti-stock fraud law an effective instrument with which to combat stock swindlers came In the form of two decisions sustaining him in the State Court of Appeals, and one in the United States Supreme Court. ~Mi\ Ottinger, went after the loan sharks, all, through the state. These \gypers\ were obtaining from 250 to 1,000 per cent on small loans, from needy workers, the usurious filching amounting to $25,000,000 a year. A large proportion of thestr loans were for urgent needs, funerals, births, sickness and injuries. He instituted a series of conferences with large employers, organized char- ity officials and | labor leaders to de- vise methods for supplying credit to small borrowers. As a result com- panies have already installed loan sys- tems for their employees; and legis- lation will be introduced at Albany not only to protect the worker, but to provide him with additional credit facilities. He sent usurers to prison. The offices of the loan pirates were closed throughout the state. Under the anti-monopoly law Attor- ney General Ottinger proceeded against profiteers in foods, coal and ice. Numerous combinations were dissolved following actions in ^he Su- preme Court. Grafters whom Mr. Ottinger got after included poultry men—he drew the bill which is now law for the erection of the poultry ex- change—the ice dealers who sold in small ambunt. coal dealers who have been imposing on small purchasers, and his is the better egg law of 1917, which prevents out-of-state dealers MRS. MARY J. GOOKINS Aged and Highly Esteemed Resident Passes Away at Home of Son, Emory Gooklns, at 03 Years. Boonvllle, Oct. 30.— This community was saddened when lit became known that Mrs. Mary J. Gooklns had pass- ed away quite suddenly at the home of her son, Emory Gookins, west of this village, in the town of Ava, Sat- urday evening at the advanced age of 83 years. While Mrs. Gooklns had. not been in the best of health for some time, she had been up and about her home and duties as usual, until the day before her death, when she was taken ill and passed away quite sud- denly. Mrs. Gookins was a splendid Christian woman. She was beloved by all who knew her, especially the children, and' it was a part of her life to amile and speak a word of cheer. She will be greatly missed in this com- munity, where she had lived more than four score years of well spent life. Mrs. Gookiris was a daughter of the late Oliver and Henrietta Welch' Capron and was born in the town of Ava, December 9, 1845. She was united in marriage with Mllo Gookins, De- cember 15, 1869, at Ava by the Rev. William T. Haygen. Her husband, who was a veteran of the Civil war, died ten years ago. Milo Gookins served faithfully in the Union army from 1861 to 1865 and fought in many of the greatest bat- tles of the war. Mrs. Gookins was a member of the M. E. church and also tt member of the Woman's Relief Corps of Boonville. Surviving are five daughters Mrs. W f J. Telle*. Con- stableville; Mrs. P. R. Cronk; Roch- ester; Mrs.' Myra Thrasher, North- western; Mrs. Frank Brooks, Rome; Mrs. N. T. Woolschlager, Llowville; two sons, Elmer Gookins, Boonville; Emory Gookins. Boonville; ^twenty- thl'ee grandchildren and rive great grandchildren.

Work on thisncwlink which will great- ly shorten the distance to Montreal without ferrying, will be started early next year and will be rushed to com- pletion. It will cost $1,800,000. Plans have been completed by the department of public works and labor of tho provinceof Quebec and the com- mission recently named under the act of the last session of the Quebec leg- islature will call soon for tenders. The service at present is by ferry boats be- tween the I>achine wharf and the Caughnawagft Indian village. The bridge in all probability will be a short distance below the Canadian Pacific railway bridge below Lachine. thus eliminating a level crossing and also shortening the distance. HOTEL BURNED LOWVILLEIANS IN FLORIDA Several Scamper About the Beach, Bask In the Sunshine, Go Bathing, Play Golf and Have a Good Time. St. Petersburg, Fla., Oct. 30. (Special)—Lowville's colony of win- ter visitors who will spend the season here In the sub-tropics, far away from the rigors of the cold months, will be considerably increased when addi- tional numbers will come here in the fall and winter to enjoy the warm sunshine and the many tourist recrea- tions. Several reservations from Lowville residents have already been received for the season now on, most of them coming south. t by automobile, while later arrivals will come by rail. Lowville residents who spent the season In Florida last year included Miss Erma I. Bassett, Dr. and Mrs. H. A. Bassett. Mrs. A. W. Davenport, Mrs. Grace B. Davenport, Mr. and Mrs. G. M. Hutchina, Mr. and Mrs. William A. Miller, Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Barrett, Mr. and Mrs. Everett Millard and son, Mr. and Mrs. Leon F. Graves. Many new attractions have been provided for winter visitors by wise city fathers, including additional game facilities, two new golf courses, tennis courts, roque and lawn bowling rinks, shuffle beard courts, horseshoe Rltehing and quoit courts, trapshoot- ing ranges and archery lanes. Moses and his famous concert band has been engaged for a twenty week season, beginning December 1st and continuing through Into April. They will give free programmes daily in picturesque Williams Park. Fifteen amateur and professional golf tourna- ments have been arranged for the seaaon, the first events to be held next month. Indication that many Lowville resi- dents plan to spend their first season here Is evidenced by the numerous re- quests made of the local Chamber of Commerce for the new illustrated booklet, descriptive of the famed Sun- shine City and its surroundings, which is being mailed free to those j writing for IL i - Sun bathing, the new health vogue, Inaugurated hero two years ago by sun ba.th.ers, will continue In greater popularity than ever before, hundreds already coming to St. Petersburg In September and early October to In- dulge in this invigorating health in- surance fad. Two solariums have re- cently been erected by the city of Tampa Bay beach, and two large pri- vate institutions are now in the course of construction on Gulf Islands. - I All free public schools and the Junior College are open for the season in which sixty-three per cent of the enrollment already consists of the qhildren of visitors. t Ninety-six yachts and house boats have arrived In th^ three yacht basins, and this number is expected to-ex- ceed 600 before the season's peak is reached. Tourist rxperts predict that a quarter million sojourners will spend the seaaon here. John Lodwick News Service.. Stocks and Blondes.

Of the corporation opportunities and investments of the leaders of the \New Tammany\ the author writes: \In the twentieth century the lead- ers of Tammany Hall were in the contracting business Or were interest- ed in water, gas, electricity, or rail- roads, rather than prostitution, liquor, at a recent conference held at Utica of represehtaives of civic organiza- tions of Northern and Central New York, initiated by the New York De- velopment Association, Inc., at which a resolution by W. Pierrepont White, Honorary President of the Mohawk Valley Historic Association, was adopted, requesting additional appro- priations of $50,000 each for the Edu- cation Department and the Highway Division of the Department of Public Fort Covfngton Inn Gutted by Fin* Guests Escaped by Climbing Down Ladders. Fire early Friday morning gutted the Fort Covington Inn, Fort Coving- ton's only hotel, and the guests clad only in their night clothes, escaped by climbing down ladders from the roofs of porches. The fire originated in the basement, possibly from rubbish near an evcr- heated furnace, and spread quickly through the building. It is a three- story frame building, containing about 40 rooms. It was almost completely rebuilt about six .years ago by Wil- liam Dupree. the present owner. Since that time it had been operated by Daniel Grant. The outer walls of the building and several rooms are still intact. Mr. Dupree plans to repair the building soon. Mr. Grant expects to continue to operate it. Practically all the furnishings were destroyed. The guests lost most of their clothes and personal effects. Mr. Dupree's loss ia said to be covered by- insurance. The total loss is estimated at $5,000. gambling, or extortion; for it was , Works to be used in part for carrying Murphy's great and lasting contribu- , on this work. tlon to the philosophy of Tammany Hall that he taught the organization that more money can be made by a tt bk legal contract mail.\ y than by petty black- Of course, the old forms of graft survive, as we know from the cur- rent milk, sewer, and street-cleaning scandals, but the larger forms qf in- come are derived from inside connec- tions with capitalist enterprises. Tammany must continue to receive the support of the voters if its leaders are to fatten on the millions who live in the disease-breeding fire traps which they call homes, so the leaders continue to toss \philanthropy\ to the dupes. \Big Tim\ Sullivan worked \philan- thropy\ on a large scale; his distribu- tion of food, clothing and money to the Bowery wretches of his district were estimated at $25,000 annually, but as Werner observes: \The political profits of his district b dd between seven an much as he gave were estimated eight times as away.\ Political returns were also reaped when Sullivan headed gangs of Bow- ery thugs from one polling place to another on election days. When he died Sullivan's estate was estimated at between two and three millions. \Distress disease, and death price of Tammany 'Charity.'\ the The \charity\ given by Tammany leaders costs them nothing. It is an investment that pays dividends in cash and votes. The poor devils who are swindled by this sob stuff pay the cost in disease and often death. Prof. Merrlam, of Chicago University, makes this striking and truthful com- ment regarding Tammany \charity.\ He points 6ut that the boss—\gives 1 $100 to charity, but accepts $1,000 for iilS against ordinance for better H th fl Upon presenting copies of this reso- lution to the heads of these depart- ments, the New York Development Association, Inc., was advised by the State Education Department that $70,000 is now available for preparing historic markers, and Hon. Frederick Stuart Greene. Superintendent of the Department of Public Works, volun- teered the services of the Division of Highways to erect these markers along the state highway system with- out chargel to the Department of Edu- cation. State Historian A. C. Flick is now compiling information in regard to the historic points which should be marked. Blank forms upon which to describe historic places to be marked if county highway officials will erect the markers furnished by the state. The Development Association is ready to negotiate with highway officials on the subject. The Division of Highways received very high praise at the Utica confer- ence for the work now being done in marking villages and streams. When historic places are also marked, the interest in this region to tourists will be greatly Increased, and the pride of thei various communities in their own history will be much enhanced. \It ia very gratifying,\ declared George A.
