Hrivcrford townuhlp when argument was hoard yeMerdny on exceptions mod hy Rob w who Is representing to the proposed divid ing of the ward Judge Oroornuil also indicated that by reason of thr 2455 voters In Huvorford township tlmt there wus a necessity ot creating several addi tional voting prccInctH Mr Heatty promptly iicqulwcecl with that view and told the court that his clients and the people of Jiroukllne in gen eral would undoubtedly welcome flew voting placex rather than additional Frank O PenIn representing the petitioners for the new wards bit terly opposed additional voting places and argued that there should bo more commissioners to properly represent the people He claimed that 2155 citizens require at leant three com missioners to properly represent them which en used the court to smile In November or lnst yenr the Into Judge Itiiinc Johnson on v petition of O Perrin who represented 20 freeholders appointed t special commission composed of Mrs Laura C of Drexel Hill James A Rates of East Lansdowne and William H Lnndis of Swurthmorr to make an Investigation and hold hearings on the matter of dividing the seventh ward into three wards Too commission recommended that the ward be divided Mr Beatty In the proscribed time allowed by law filed exceptions to the recommendation by the commis sion One exception was to the ef fect that the net assembly provided that where nn appointment of a com mission in the enae of the dividing of wnrdw was made that the Court ot Quarter Session shall appoint three impartial men to investigate and mnke recommendation to the court Mr Beiuty also pointed out that one of the members of the commis sion was a womun nnd the other two members men and that such ap pointment did not conform with the act of assembly He also pointed out that there was no necessity for additional wards and that applica tion for division of the seventh ward into three wards should have been made by 20 electors instead of free holders Several efforts were made since the filing of exceptions by Mr Beatty to have the court hear arguments and testimony hut for some reason this was not done it was pointed out at the hen ring In his argument Mr Beatty in dicated thnt the appointment of ad ditional commissioners would bo dangerous and that it would mean an unwieldy and cumbersome horly and that no good would be obtained hy doing so He said that the town ship ot Hnverford with eight com missioners were sufllelent and that the government of that township was being splendidly carried on by them Mr Bentty also said that by reason of the rapid growth and development ot the township It would give other growing districts the same opportu nity In event the court created ad ditional wards in Haverforcl town ship to make application for addi tional wards COOLIDGE DENIES HE WILL CUT U S ARMY HARDING DEMANDED DOPE ON MERTON CASE NEW YOK Oct Harding in k letter written June 30 192 to Harry M Dauglierty asked bis
