Judge Kohler refused to assign the
ease of Grafton S. Whittb-r vs. the
A.B.&C. .Railroad Company (o Judge
Nye Monday morning.
Attorney Cobbs, representing the
defendant, asked that the transfer
ho made. This case grows out of the
accident which resulted in the death
of Conductor Justus H. "Wnlborn. In
the trial of that case the plaintiff re
covered $10,000. The judgment was
set aside by the Circuit court. It was
because of this that the defendant
asked for a transfer of the Whittier
case. Judge Kohler said he would
hear the case unless an affidavit pf
prejudice was filed against him by
Shciiff F. G. Kelly lias adopted a
new idle which will bo rigidly en

Deserve a Hall In
Mr. J. W. Little Suggests a Plan That
Will be Popular.
To the Editor of the Democrat:
Having a matter I would like to
bring to the thoughtful people of
Summit county, I bring it through
the Dkmocbat, thinking it may
reach more people who may be in
terested than in any other way. I
was one of the men who voted for a
new cpurt house at our last election',
not that I want more law, but less if
possible. But what we are com-
! pelled to have, I want in a good,
suitable place, and I want a safe
place for all valuable records that
must be preserved and are very im-'
porta"nt to nearly every citizen of the j
county. , I
The proposition 1 want to bring for
all the voters to consider is that
when a new court house is built that
a hall be made for the Grand Army,
with all modern improvements, free
" rental, anu lor tneir exclusive use
a" loll& as OIle '"ember is living in
i... . ......i.. i u. r... ..ii .:,,. .i
u ie uyiuii nuu iiiuu iui mi unit; its a
home and for" the safe care of all
relics and records of every post in
the county, a sacred place where our
children can visit in years to come.
Why do I think this right and just?
Because the loyal men at home said
they would remember us if we would
go to the front, which they have
most nobly done. But the number
of our old soldierb are very rapidly
growing less in every post all over
this country, and many posts in Sum
mit county can hardly exist under
the cxpenseof rent, etc., aside from
the work for the needy comrades.
Buckley post of Akron, one of the
largest in the state, docs a work for
the needy of their postwith that frco
spirit of comradeship that is not
equalled anywhere in this great free
country of ours. Then the rent and
.expense of keeping the hall is a'bur-
ben where burdens should not fall.
What we want is a home for every
G. A. R. man in Summit county,
when his post is closed for want of
members or otherwise
1 am sure that when the time
comes, (as it will), that this thought
will meet the approval of all just
people in the-couuty. There are
others when plans are completed,
who will be also remembered, our.
noble volunteers of 1899.

- THE CHURCH
And Its Relations to City Affairs
Rev. C. J. Tannar preached an in
teresting sennon Sunday morning at
the First Church of Christ on "The
Church and the City."
He took his text from the 18th
4 .Revelation, 21-2, which refers to
' the contrast between two cities. He
'dwelt along the line of the rapid
growth of new cities and rend sta-
tisties showing (he amount of crime
committed in those places.
He said, among other things, that
New York city, which occupies a
space of 800 square miles, lias a pop
ulation as great as the original thir
teen colonies. He also said that
special effortb should be made for the
redemption of these wicked cities.

The "Harum" Story of
the New York Correspondent
Guilty of Plagiarism?
David Haumiin. the incidents and
experiences of whose life furnished
the basis for the popular novel
"David Harum,'' is enjoying as ex
tensive an acquaintanceship as any
living man. The most recent ac
quisition to his loug list of fi jends
is ' the Beacon-Journal, wln.ic ac
quaintance Mr. Haiinum must hnve

respondent of tho New YoiK Com
The correspondent of the New
York sheet was so greatly impressed
with Mr. Hannum, and his winning
disposition, that he contributed an
interesting article to his paper some
two weeks ago, in which he paid
many encomiums to this kind and
affable old gentleman.
Saturday evening- that' erudite
sheet, the Beacon Journal, reached
up into the spacious shelves of its
colcccal memory, pullod ' do .vn its
reminiscences of this life-long friend,
and reproduced thein in print, at
tributing the authorship of the ar
ticle to Mrs. M. C. Read of Hudson.
The strangest thing of "all is that
the impression made by Haniiuni
upon the Beacon was exactly the
same as that made upon tho New
Mr. Hannum told the same stories,
in exactly the same words, and as a
consequence the reminiscences of the
acquaintance was the same.
Some people would be mean
enough to accuse the Beacon of,
plagiarism. But they are widely,
mistaken. It is the correspondent
of the New York Advertiser who is
tho real plagiarist. Ho.is a man pos
sessed of wonderful prescience, and
his sagacious foresight enabled him
to divine the future, and maliciously

The different lodges of the I.O.O.F.
of this city, marched in a body Sun
day morning to St. Paul's Episcopal
church, preceded by the Eighth Reg
iment band. The church was not
large enough to accommodate the
crowd, and many were compelled to
stand on the outside.
Sunday was the eightieth anniver
sary of this order, and the lodges as
sembled in obedience to the order of
the Grand Lodge, which designates a
certain day to be appropriately com
memorated by the order in attend
ance upon Divine service.
Rev. Blake's address was instruct-ivi-
and helpful. In his introductory
remarks, he reviewed the history of
the order, and showed its far-reaching
influence and power. In speak
ing of the two-fold intent of this
order, he said that the social feature
when properly governed, helped to
foster the better social elements, and
to makefile more, considerate of the
claim of others. His closing Words
spoken with j'nipressivoiiess and
earnestness, made a deep impression
upon the audience: "Take the name
ftf Jesus with you, for in Him you
have thegreatest friend. The most
astounding exhibition of love that
the world ever saw and the very es
sence of all truth; for He is tho Way,
the Truth and the Life."
