East Camden used to have three parks “in the old days”—and to hear a veteran like Police Sergeant William C. Horner tell it—they certainly kept the police force “on its toes.”
Considered one cf the most successful events ever given in Camden, the second annual industrial show and carnival of the Camden Police Beneficial Association came to a close in the Third Regiment Armory Saturday night with the crowning of the queen. Miss Margaret Rudolph, daughter of Chas Rudolph, of Master street, was accorded that honor. It is estimated that during the week more than 50,000 persons visited the armory and participated in the festivities.
Two men were charged with killing an 18-year-old. The victim volunteered to escort two young ladies home and was shot by the two men when he was returning. The murder was brutal and, initially, the police had no clue where to start the investigation.
