MAYOR ALBEE'S 1IBERTT
To the People of Portland:
Portland will be honored "next
Thursday morning by the pres
ence of the Liberty Bell, one of
the most highly prized posses
sions of the United States.
An opportunity never before
presented and one that will never
again come to many thousands
ot Portland citizens will be of
fered. No one should fall to see this
bell', around which cling so many
tales of the history of Ameri
can liberty. Its trip from its
home in Philadelphia has been
one continuous, patriotic demon
stration, people everywhere ex
hibiting the wonderful heart
hold this relic has upon them.
I sincerely trust that everyone
in Portland will take time to see
the bell, and to the end that this
may be possibre to all alike it is
urged that employers arrange so
that the occasion be regarded,
insofar as is possible, as a half
holiday. H. R. ALB EE,
Mayor of the City of Portland.
Make tomorrow morning a half holi
day. This is the plea of Mayor Albet
and members of the committees in
charge of arrangements for the visit
of the Liberty Bell to Portland. The
Mayor says he has hopes that his plea
will induce the majority of employers
to let their employes off long enough
at least to see the bell and the parade.
The city will take the lead. Mayor
Albee will ask the Council at this morn
ing's meeting to let all city employes
off for a part of the day. It is said
similar arrangements already have
been made by a number of business
houses. The Mayor issued a proclama
tion yesterday urging the step. .
Nothing in the way of arrangements
remains undone. The belL with the
speical train of officials from Philadel
phia, will reach the city at 6:30 o'clock
tomorrow morning. It will be wel
comed by the blowing of whistles on
all mills and factories and steamers and
