P. state noriator from the Mth Senatorial district, today issued a formal statement outlining his position on the matter. Rep. Painter may have some local oposition in the candidacy for state senator inasmuch as Judge Thomas Neary, for some lime is rumored to have his eye on that post. However there was no further cleaeance in this point today. The statement of Representative Painter is as follows: "After serving In the General Assembly as n representative from Naugatuck for the past two years I am now desirous of becoming the Republican candidate for the Stute Senate from the Mth Senatorial district. .

Melro Mimic Mart, 88 St. Tel. 5287.—Adv. . Fire Marshal Michael F. Shea suld this morning that he .wi make u check on all Carnivals and 'Buziiiirs that ure beir.R held or will be held'in Naugatuck. Any event that requires canvas 'will not be allowed to continue if the covering is not llrcproof.or if there is any defective wiring on the premises. The measure i.s purely .a precautionary one after the fire in the circus tent of Ringling JSrothers- Barnum and Bailey, in Hartford last week, which so far has resulted in 159 deaths. The city of Waterbury has also taken, steps, and several community or, church carnivals have been halted as the city lire marshal deemed tents and canvas coverings Are hazards.. . Mr. Shua said .that he would' in- vestigate'to' the conditions undcr which' the St. Hcdwijf's church bazaar, is being held, although it is reported to be held in the church pavilion, which is a wooden build- Ing, aTid all booths are ot wood. St Mary's, parish .is also planning a bazaar, an* Marshall Shea will also chficlfup on that affair. Mr. Shea feels that although a catastrophe as • the one that occurred' in Hartford last week may never happen . again, it is fitting and proper that precautions should still be taken, especially in places like Naugatuck,. where .. such' • a thing people think, is virtually impossible. .. , PRESIDENT FRAJfKLIX D.
