It will be remembered that llepresenta

weeks ago to a representative of the Ki

with Ilepresentatlve Taylor and endeavor
to effect a compromise with hi in. so that
both Springfield and Columbus might be ac

a bill for a police judge in Spriugtield. and
he combined witli Sir Ta) lor In the prep

cases and afford the relief desired. The
provisions of the substitute are the same
as were In the original, with the exceptions
that It leaves the matter of compensation

and very enthusiastic audience at Black's

first time In this city the production of
"Pat's Wardrobe." There Is only little to
the play itself, and without Just such a
character as Mr. Itooney to take the leading

piece. His talent Individuality and danc

cannot help being the star of the ev enlng.
Katie Itooney became quite a favorite

before the foot-lights and barring the
harshness of her voice, did her part in quite
a taking manner.

Heautirul aud Just Tribute.
The subjoined obituar) notii e of Sir J
Thomas Vose is clipped from the Bosh n
Ktemwj Traveler. Sir. Vose was a
brother of Sir E. J Vose, suterinteudent
of the Warder, Bashnell A (.lessnt-r Co ,
aud was very well known In this city Ills
sudden death will be sincirel) mourned by
a large circle of relatives and friends The

announcement of his death, which c urns

lingering Illness of kidney trouble fjjmt.
reientl) he came in Boston, and apur
to be improving, but was stricken dowi
suddenly, and died as stated above.
Sir. Vose wis born In Boston in 181K in
the house on Common street next to thf
Brimmer school house. He was the son ol
Joshua Vose, of the old hatting firm of E
J Vose. and after graduating from th
English High school he entered the store oi
Jennevss, (,age A Moody, in Liberty square
where he remained through various chxngt
till it became Lyon A Vose. and only lef
the old building at the time of the great fire
in ls72. In the progress of business Mr
John E. Lyon became largely interested n
railroads, leaving the other business to Mr
Vose. Tim sudden death of Sir. L)on.
leaving his large estate to .Mr. Vose for set
tlement compelled his taking the place or
Mr. Lyon in his vari.ms enterprises, po,i
tions which he accepted as a sense of dutv
to his late partner. He was president o
the Boston. Concord A Montreal railroad
and subsequently of the Concord railroad
acting also as director of the Atlantii
The pleasure of his life consisted in work
ing for the young people ot the Warrei
street chapel, he hav ing Joined that institu
tion as a boy at its commencement and
from that da) to this he has contributed
both time and money in the promotion ot
the work of the institution, probabl
spending more towards its annual support
than any other single person. His death is
a very serious blow to the Warren street
chapel, and its managers may well ask
who are to fill the places of such benefac
tors as Ilenr) P. Kidder, F. K Parker
George C. Klchardson. James A. Dupeeand
J. Thomas Vose. all of whom hav e depart
ed within the year past
Mr. ose was a man w ho was genial and
courteous to alL exceedingly unostentatious
of a remarkably even temperament squ ire
and decisive In all his dealings, and no
greater loss has fallen upon our couiuiuint)
for some time than that occasioned by bis
death. His memory will be very sweet to
his business friends, and especially to thous
ands of young persons who for fort) ears
have looked up to him as a man whose life
was to be copied. He was a kind and lov
ing husband and father and a staunch
friend. He leaves a widow and one -on
who Is married and lives at Boston High
lands. Mr. Vo-e's mother was the daugh
ter of Captain Wheeler, who was one of the
tea-party that threw the tea overboard, and
afterwards commanded a company at the
siege of Boston, his company assisting at
the fortifying of Dorchester Heights.
The announcement of the death of Sir
Vose will be received with genuine regret
wherever he was known, and bis large cir
cled friends will sincerely sy inpathize w ith
tne family and relatives in thejr bereave
ment, or all tils as-ociates there are none
who will more keenly feel hts loss than Sir
Samuel Weltch. the well known shipping
agent of this city. The two gentlemen
married sisters, have lived together sime
their married life began, have always been
closely attached, and no tw o brothers ev er
held higher friendship and respect for each
other than has existed between them. Mr
W eltch has for a great many ) ears also
been one of the most devoted and promi
nent In advancing the Interests of the War
ren street chapel as a co-worker of Mr
Vose. and the death of his old friend is a
terrible shock to him.
