CHESTNUT STREET is another of the "tree streets", running east from the river to Haddon Avenue, where it becomes Park Boulevard. For most of its length, the street runs between Mount Vernon and Sycamore Streets. 

Do you have a Chestnut Street memory or picture. Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.

CELLAR FIRE DISTURBS FAMILY AT NOON MEAL

The noonday meal at the home of Natale Perticari at 263 Chestnut Street was interrupted Saturday when fire engines drew up at the door.

Discarded newspapers stored in the cellar of the house had begun to smolder as the family sat in the kitchen. An unidentified passerby, who saw smoke pouring from the basement windows, sent in an alarm. No damage was reported.

2 Wives Give Same Block Duplicate Murder Scares
And Two Hubbies on Warpath, Both Brandishing Knives,
Subdued by Same Cop; Will Tell It to Same Judge Today

Two wives, within two hours, excited the neighborhood of Chestnut Street in the 200 block by running into the street and calling "murder."        .

In both instances Motorcycle Patrolman Earl Wright was summoned to subdue ferocious husbands.

The first call came from 290 Chestnut Street. Wright used jujitsu to stop William Passio, 24, from breaking up the furniture and threatening his wife, Catherine, with a bread knife. The cop arrested Passio and confiscated one case or 48 half-pint bottles of alleged whiskey and a punchboard. Sergeant Truax and Policeman Devine assisted.

The second call came from 254 Chestnut Street. Wright and Sergeant Petit found George Hall, 28, at the back door with a carving knife up his sleeve.

His wife, Hazel, said he attempted to kill her. Wright drew his pistol- Hall handed over the knife.

Both men were given "suites" in the city jail pending arraignment today. Both were charged with "threats to kill.'

WOMAN KILLED, TRUCK DRIVER HAD NO LICENSE
Two Arrested in Fatal Accident at Eighth And Kaighn Avenue

A 44 year-old South Camden woman was fatally injured at Eighth and Kaighn Avenue last night by a loaded brick truck driven by an unlicensed driver. 

The woman was Mrs. Mollie Katz, of 1146 South Third Street. She died in West Jersey Homeopathic 
Hospital
of a fractured skull. 

The driver of the truck, Thelmer White, 32, colored, of 333 Chestnut Street, told police he was driving without a license but with the consent of his employer, Charles Moore, house-wrecking contractor, of 829 Kaighn Avenue.

White was held in $5000 bail on a technical charge of manslaughter, while Moore was arrested for allowing an unlicensed driver to operate his automobile, and held in $500 bail. Both will be given a hearing today.

According to White, Mrs. Katz stepped from the curb directly into the path of his truck and he could not avoid striking her. 

The Second District Patrol, en route to Eighth and Sycamore Streets on another call, was directly back of the truck at the time of the accident and took the woman to the hospital.

RAIDERS ARREST THREE, 
SEIZE WASH BOILER STILL

Second District police seized a "wash boiler" still and arrested three persons last night when they raided a dwelling at 954 South Ninth Street.

 Arrested were George Young, 29; his wife, Ethel, 19, and Anna Fussel, 37, of 614 Chestnut Street. Police also took along the Young's three­ year-old son, Julian, and lodged him in the detention room under the care of a police matron until his parents obtain bail.

The raid was staged by Sergeant Walter Mattison and District Detectives Vernon Jones and Thomas Cheeseman.

Young was held as proprietor and the others as material witnesses. He will be given a hearing today.

Judge Pancoast Proves to 2I
That Honesty Is Best Policy

If there’s anything Police Judge Pancoast doesn’t like it's to have people trying to fool him, he said. So yesterday Pancoast sent two alleged speakeasy inmates to jail for 60 days and gave the confessed proprietor only 50 days.

Emil Hatter, 35, of 829 Carpenter Street, was arrested for violating the ordinance prohibiting congregation of disorder1y persons on the premises by Lieutenant Herbert Anderson Thursday. Hatter told the court that he was proprietor and was in the illegal liquor business to provide for his two children.

"That's no excuse," said the judge, "you should provide for them without breaking the law."

He fined Hatter $50 and sentenced him to 50 days when he was unable to pay. The judge then turned to Edward Mackay, 38, of 531 Ray Street, and Alfred Brooks, 45, of 700 Pearl Street [wrong address - PMC], who, Andersen said, were drunk in Hatter's establishment.

Both men admitted having a few drinks, elsewhere, but insisted they were sober and that they did not buy the drinks from Hatter.

"I'm good and tired of having peop1e trying to fool me," said Pancoast. "I don't know what they take me for. I'm going to end it, though, by giving each of you 60 days."

Unable to pay a fine of $100, George Young, 29, colored, 954 South Ninth Street, was sentenced to 100 days when he pleaded guilty to operating a "wash­boiler" still in violation of the city speakeasy ordinance. His wife, Ethel, 19, and Annie Fussel, 37, of 614 Chestnut Street, alleged inmates, were given 30 days each in default of $25 fines.

Camden water main springs leak

A 16-inch water main in the vicinity of 7th and Chestnut streets sprung a leak and water company workers installed a plate on Wednesday as a precaution.

United Water will begin repairing the leak Monday, city officials said.

The repairs may result in some customers losing service and noticing discolored water from their taps.

If residents loose water service or see discoloration, they should call (856) 488-2041 immediately, said Patrick Keating, director of public works.

A number of colored citizens met at the home of Mrs. Mary Colding, 736 Chestnut Street, and arranged for the establishment of a Baptist Church for colored people in Camden. The first public service was held in a blacksmith shop at 6th and Kaighn Avenue. The meeting place was destroyed by fire in 1858. Services were then held in private houses until the meeting house at 7th & Kaighn Avenue was built in 1864. This was called the Mt. Zion Baptist Church. In 1873 the Seventh Baptist Church was dedicated. The old church property, which had been enlarged in 1884, was sold in 1905. On May 1, 1906, the cornerstone for the new church was laid and the building completed June of 1907. This new church was located at 9th and Kaighn Avenue and was dedicated as the Kaighn Avenue Baptist Church.

DRILL THIEF JAILED; BUYER IS FINED $50

A youth was given three months in jail by Police Judge Pancoast yesterday on charges of stealing an electric drill from a South Camden garage. A man charged with buying the instrument from him was fined $50.

George Brown, 18, colored, of 1411 South Fourth Street was arrested Wednesday night on complaint of Isadore Mesrau, of 1411 Broadway, and confessed that he stole the drill because Mesrau owed him $1. He told Detective Frank Crawford that he sold the drill to John Casto, of 763 Chestnut Street.

Casto when arraigned yesterday denied that he bought the drill but was found guilty and was fined.

AUTO GUNMEN LOSE STREET BATTLE HERE
Fire Five Shots, But Fail to Hit Man at Eighth and Chestnut

Three gunmen in a speeding automobile opened fire last night on an unknown victim near Eighth and Chestnut Streets and escaped before arrival of police.

Apparently no one was injured by the fire of the gangsters and police were unable to learn at whom the bullets were directed.

Five empty 12-gauge shotgun shells were found in the street after the gunmen had fled.

According to a meager description furnished police by pedestrians, several of whom narrowly escaped being hit by the bullets, the car containing the gunmen bore Pennsylvania license plates and was a closed sedan.

Two of the men were in the rear seat, each holding what appeared to be a pump-gun.

The description of the car was broadcast over the state police tele­type system and a police net was thrown about the city, but no arrests had been made early today.

FISHING TACKLE MAN HAS FISHERMAN'S LUCK

Speaking of fisherman's luck, Louis Drueding, fishing tackle salesman at the store of Edward E. Tryon, 912 Chestnut street, has it. 

Drueding went to Grenloch lake and in a single cast hooked a six­pound bass. The fish was game and gave Drueding a tussle before it was landed.

FIRE FIGHTER HURT AS 2-ALARM BLAZE DAMAGES JUNK SHOP

A fireman was injured slightly last night when a two-alarm fire damaged the Penn Junk Shop at 1190 Chestnut street.

Hoseman Adam Meade, 41, of 1446 South Fourth Street, attached to Engine Company No. 3. suffered an injured ankle when a fence fell on it 'while he was fighting the blaze. He was taken to West Jersey Hospital where he was treated and released.

The fire, of undetermined origin, started in the single - story frame building owned by Chester Szalanski and had gained good headway in piles of papers and rags before firemen arrived.

The first alarm was turned in at 10:36 p. m. by Alice Saduski, 16, of 1169 Chestnut street, who ran across the snow - covered street in bare feet to pull the fire alarm box.

When Battalion Chief Charles Errickson arrived he ordered the second alarm turned in. No estimate of the loss could be obtained last night.
