I Ernest Smith, who as told last week, wa.H under arrest charged with assault in the third degree by Charles Simon- son, was discharged hy I'olice Justice Elvin N. Edwards Friday, when tho plaintiff did not appear to press the charge. The closing meeting of the Freeport Chapter, No. :io2, R. A. Masons was hekl Tuesday evening, before the suni- mer vacation, when 3 iM. E. .\l.'s were received to the degree ef the Royal Arch. After the work had been con¬ cluded a banquet was served in charge of the entertainment committee. The good vaudeville entertainments that are being presented at the Colon¬ ial Theatre every Saturday evening are being appreciated as shown by the steady increase of the attendance. Last Saturday there were more than usual at the entertainment and the various numbers warianted even abet¬ ter one. The feature <if the evening was Will 11. Pbilbrick and coinpany, in Tho I'est Show Yet. Johnny SniaU ai d his two small sisters also [deased and were re peatedly called before the audience. They gave a novelty singing and danc¬ ing act. Others on the program were Billy Harlow, Miss Ashley, imitations; Fox and Evans, dancing and singing; Gus Cohen, German oialect comedian; anil Herman and Rice, acrobatic act. On Monday of last week the Free- port Arts Club and their invited guests spent a most enjoyable afternoon lis¬ tening to Mrs. Jessica Lozier Payne, a well known lecturer of lirooklyn, speak on the "Message of the Hour."

An Important ^ Auction Sale An executor's sale of an undivided one-third interest in valuable real es¬ tate at Merrick, by Albert Cheshire & Sons, auctioneers, is announced in the Review this week. This property has a big frontage on Merrick Road and will probably be sold cheaply. See their adv. in this issue. The Review now is publishing the advertising of N. K. Smith, the baker on Newton Boulevard, who solicits your patronage. It Barasch is a clothier who believes that advertising pays; see his adv. in the Review thi^ week. It COMING OF COLUMBUS Released At Last The three reels comprising the won¬ derful historical motion picture of "The Coming of Columbus," haa been released after three years of prepara¬ tion and the cutlay of over $50,(100. It is the unanimous verdict of those conversant with the motion picture in¬ dustry that thiii is the greatest motion picture ever pro.luced. Tho costumes of the period, the characters who move and ipeak, the three caravels that coin- prised the fleet of Columbus, nia return from his voyage of discovery and bis subsequent vicissitudes are all depicted as vividly and correctly as if the film was made from the real scenes and characters of history. Tbe Crystal theatre has thia masterpiece for Fri¬ day, June 7. It Geo. T. Boynton, 24 W. Dean St.. has Sweeper-Vacs to r<)nt as well as for sfile. See adv. 4t Elks Open House About c:iie hundred nicinbers of Free- port Lodge, No. 12.'3. K. P. 0. Llks, inspecteil their new club house at the corner of Merrick Koad and South drove Street last Saturday and evening at its informal cpenirg. Since the Lodge purchased the house several months ago it has been entirely renovated and an addition erected on the southwest corner. The parlor is eqiiii ped with a piano and very comfortable leather chairs. Besides this there are two large dining rooms, a kitchen and cafe on the ground floor, and a spacious reception hall in which is one of the largest elk's heads in the United States, presented to the local lodge by Robert DeLatiey, a brother Elk from Atlantic City. On the second lloor are two spare bedrooms fitted with brrdseye maple furniture with brass beds; two card rooms and two bath rooms. A large pool and billiard room is on the third lloor. There are two of the latest design pool tables with drop down and return attachments so that as soon as the balls are dropped in the pockets they will return to a small box platform v/t the head end of the table. There is also a billiard table. Both a front and back stairs lead to thisroo.m. While the affair last Saturday was an informal opening plans for a formal opening to be held on Saturday, June 22, are under way. It is the plan of the Elks to have the village decorated for the occasion. The sidewalk in front of the placn has been raised to meet the grade of the street and the property has been i filled in and properly graded. Besides the large Elk's head on the front of the building each tip of the horns of which ia mounted with an electric light bulb, a large bronze bead will bo also placed on the front lawn. The membership is 255 and the Lodge has been organized ten months. Franklin C. Gilbert of Hempstead has secured the agency for the "Crow Elkhart" automobiles for Queens, Nassau and Suffolk Counties. There are twelve models of the machine. Charged by her next door neighbor, Mrs. Rose Helland, with malicious mis¬ chief, Mrs. Elizabeth Bedell of Colum¬ bus Avenue, was arrested by Officer Ira 11. Baker on Wedneaday of last week and arraigned before Police Jus¬ tice Elvin N. Eilwards.

The plan cf the Village Board to hold special meetings before the regular meeting each week, does not seem to be very successful. It is very difficult for most people to get around so early, and in fact the membera of the Board themselves tre unable to do so all the time. The new extensions of water mains provides for the pplei:did protection of property on Railrijad Avenue. I don't care if they never properly protect Main Street, because the buildings there are rather old anyhow, but it will be rather difiicult to explain after a conflagration why there was nut proper hydrant facilities. '' There has been some question as to why the Review does not discuss Na¬ tional politics, as so inar.y country pa¬ per.? try tn do. \i The Review has more material than it can use without dabbling in affairs which are naturally better covered by larger papers. In our field we give our readers as good a paper as we know how, but we have not yet aeen a country paper in which the comments on National politics were of njuch im¬ portance, anti there is no reason why they should be. The attention of our \illage Board ia directed to the resolution of the Board of Supervisors to provide a tax sale for county taxes unpaid. It is going to be dilficult to collect taxes this year if the Village Hoard merely winks at the long list of unpaid taxes,- growing larger each year. ' When gned police oflicers were want¬ ed to handle the trailic at Greenfield Cemetery on Decoration Day apiilica- lions waa made to the Freepert Police iJepartment. Officers Raynor and Boyden were sent up a;ul one of the Trustees at the Cemetery told me they did fine work. I would respectfully suggest to our Village Boar(' of Trustees the pro¬ priety of getting a new flag for the Village pnle, at the junction of .Main and Church Street. The one there on Decoration Day was badly frayed. A reader asks if the Woodcleft sec¬ tion is not getting more than ita share of tire hydrants. I don't think it is. Houses are being built there, lots of them and the same applies to Russell Place, but I'll admit I had to hui:t fnr nearly half an hour to find Fredericks Avenue, where a hydrant ia to be in¬ stalled and that was why I said every¬ body in tbe Village is now entitled to fire protection. I don't know of a more out-of-the-way street in the vil¬ lage. I couliln't even find it with an- ofiicial village map in my hand. At the service in the M. E. Church Sunday evening, the pastor announced that the management of the Colonial Theatre had asssured him that no more entertainments of any kind Would be allowed in the Colonial on Sundays. There was no queation regarding the excellent musical entertainmenta given by Creatore's Band, which Forrester & Moore, the managera, bad in their place several Sunday evenings, but it was thought that this would be an opening wedge for moving picture shows, etc., making toward a wide- open Sunday, and when appealed to. the management of the Colonial readily consented to the reciuest to keep the place closed. Capt. Hanse informs us plans are on the way for Peekskill gravel on Porter- field Place, and he assures us the work will be commenced next weeK. One of our subscribers announces tbat the village r(dler was used for rolling down private ground, and wants to know if the village is doing this work on contract. I'pon application at the Village Utlice, we are informed that no sched¬ ule of prices for this work has been filed, so we presume that no extensive Work in this line is anticipated. We will advise our reader as soon aa we are able to secure any extra in¬ formation on this line. A squirrel enjoying himself on Pire Street and Ocean Avenue this past week has reminded us that we are still somewhat in the country. Don't cook another Sunday dinner over a sweltering coal stove like you : did last week. Order a gas range now and make your summer cooking a pleasure instead of a taak. The Nas¬ sau & Suffolk Lighting Co. has ranges to fit all kitchens and purses.

Appreciates the Review The following letter waa received from one of our .\'ew York subscribers last week, and we will ask your leniency if we take the apace to pub¬ lish it, as it showa the opinion of our friends away from Freeport. "Enclosed find check for another year's subscription to the Review. I want to make sure of my paper which we enjoy very much. An article in laatweek'a editorials about a map giving location of lots, etc., would not be a bad plan ; we can¬ not locate ours and there may be others who will be grateful for information. We have walked and walked around but could not find them, but they are there and some day wc will be suc¬ cessful. Through the article in your paper about our visit to Roosevelt we found some friends who had gone to F>ceport to live. The paper ia fine." The result of tbe vote taken among tbe members of the department as to a choice for "Hremen's Day" between Saturday, .August ;^1, and Labor Day, showed Labor Day the winner by a small vote. The retorna showed Labor Day 57, Saturday, August 31. 46; no choice, i; void, 6. The vote was taken by the commit¬ tee after having previously deciding on Saturday, August '11, aa the date, num¬ bers of the firemen objecting to tbe day set on the ground that they could i;ut leave ttieir work. Now that Ihe date has been definite¬ ly decided, the varieus committee? have entereil into theii w^rk ard the tiren:en ' expect a very successful day. The object of the diiy is not to make noney for the departmer.t although Some will be :;tedtd to ''efiay the ex¬ penses, but to gi\e the llreinen a chance fur friendly contests anu better ac¬ quaintance. There will be a large luniterof athletic events, open to local firemen only, as well as contests along tiremanic lines between the various conipanirs. Meilals will be presented to the winners in the vari< us^ events ai,(l the committee hopes lo be able to award a point trophy for the company scoring tile largest number of po.nts.

Wall Street, .Mai.hattan, was given a rude shock Monday, when Thomaa W.

Conatable Murray went after Uentermeyer to charge bim with speeding in his auto¬ mobile while on the roada of Nassau County. Untermeyer apparently was not sat¬ isfied with Murray's authority to arrest him and he balked at submitting, at least until he had communicated with police headquarters. Murray tried to impress on the Manhattan lawyer that he held a warrant for him signed in New York County. Finally the de¬ fendant was taken before Justice Ros-, alaky, in tbe Court of General Ses¬ sions, where he was released in his own custody for a future appearance in the Freeport Court next Saturday.
