Itush for Marriage Licenses Has Its
First I'Ull at Office of the
No applications for license to wed
were received at the county clerk's
office today, Friday, the 23d, not be

cause the poles are being set, not at
right angles, but in a slanting posi
tion, and lean away from the Btreet.
The appearance is anything but or
namental, and rather than adding to
the appearance of the thoroughfare,
it detracts and makes the avenue
look more like a main street in a
The poles are set in concrete and
are 30 feet in height. The top of
the pole Is several inches from the
horizontal line of the base. In speak
ing of the matter this morning the
foreman of the crew in charge of
the work said that the poles were
being set in that manner so that
when the heavy trolley wires are
strung from them they will not give
and lean into the street. As baa been
stated, the top of the pole is several
Inches from the horizontal line from
the base and the pole is set in con
crete. It seems impossible that any
defect in the concrete base might
allow the pole to give sufficiently to
overcome the difference.
It may be possible that the wires
will pull the poles so that they will
be parallel to the buildings lines, but
it Is the opinion of those who have
noticed the work that the defect will
not be remedied. It is true that the
wooden poles gave and leaned to
ward the street, but that was due
more to the warping of the posts than
any defect in the setting.
Arguments were beard in county
court yesterday afternoon on the p
plicatlon of W. H. Whiteside, count?
treasurer, for judgment, against the
delinquent lands of George Henry fn;l
Drury Weatherhead in the Hampton
township drainage district. Judge R.
W. Olmsted found Jn favor of the com
plainant. Two weeks ago, when the
case was np, the Jury disagreed.
A drainage district was organized in
Hampton township some time ago, and
it Is alleged that Messrs. Henry and
Weatherhead had subscribed to it, but
afterwards took exception to the as
sessments made by the commission?
and refused to pay. The town clerk
turned the matter over to the coun'y
treasurer, whence the case came up
in county court. The defendants have
not yet decided whether an appeal
from the decision will be made or net.

Each worker wore a white badge
bearing the inscription, "Associated

At the time of going to press it was
impossible to obtain any figures or
forecast the outcome of the canvavs.
Only 10 books had been turned In, and
while the collections represented by
them were fairly encouraging, no line
could be gotten upon those still to be
heard from. The committee in charge,
however, was optimistic as to the out
come and no doubt will have a good re
port when all the workers have cash
