THE PEDDLERS IRE VERY
FE1.1 IN THESE BAYS
From Saturday's Dailv.
The traveling peddlers who of old
were quite active in the city, going
from house to house selling their
wares and getting away without ad
ding anything to the general enrich
ment of the city treasury are now
very few and far between and a great
part of this can be given to the credit
of Chjef of Police Barclay, who has
been very active in looking after these
traveling salesmen. As soon as they
would light in town the chief would
get in touch with them and advise
them as to the price the city would
ret on their work and direct them to
the office of the city clerk to procure
a receipt for their occupation tax,
and in the event they failed to do this
the chief wculd see that they soon de
parted and were not allowed to do
business with the citizens.
