D. Chase & Son to go Out of Business. The City National Bank to Have a New Building. The most important local business change for|many years was announced last week. R. 1’. Chase of A. D. Chase & Son has sold the brick building corner of Main, and Church streets—“Chase’s Corner”— to the City National Bank of Belfast, and has bought|the building at the junction of Main and Beaver streets now occupied by the bank. Mr. Chase will retain this building as an investment and will retire from active business, and the bank will secure the ad ditional room it has long needed and a very desirable location. The present Chase store.will be taken down and a new up-to date building erected, specially designed for the needs of the bank alone. It will prob ablylbe a two story building, the banking rooms occupying the entire ground floor with a director’s room on the second floor, and will be a handsome addition to Bel fast’s business buildings. When R. P. Chase closes out his stock and turns the building over to the City National Bank April 1st it will be the wind up of a business that has been continuous iu the same location for nearly 53 years. Ilis.uiother, Mrs. A. D. Chase, established the business April 17, 1856, and gave her life to it. She was oue of the first business women in Maine and one of the most suc cessful. In those days, and until the “drum mer” or “runner” or travelling salesman was abroad in the land our business peo ple went two or three times a year to Bos ton or New York, or both, to buy their stock and Mrs. Chase soon gained a reputa tion in those markets as a shrewd and care ful buyer and estabiised a credit that the house has retained to this day. It is worthy of note that this firm is the oldest on the books of the Boston Dry Goods Co. (for merly Jordan & Marsh) and of C. F. Hovey, and nearly the oldest on the books of John II. ;Pray Sons & Co., and that these firms are the only ones doing business in Boston today which Mrs. Chase dealt with when she started. Many other concerns, once prominent, have gone out of existence. Mrs. Chase began witu a stoca or urj goous, carpets, millinery and small wares, and the business has so continued to this day. No side lines have been introduced, and only standard goods of the best quality have been carried and sold at a living profit. The result has been a reputation for reliability and square dealing that ensured a commer cial success. Mr. Alden Chase, who later became associated .with his wife in the business, died October 30, 1906, and Mrs. Chase died Oct. 22, 1907. Both had been in failing health for some time and for some years preceding their death the business was in charge of Mr. and Mrs. R. P. Chase. Mr. Chase had been identified with the business from early boyhood and during the years of his parent’s activity had charge of the carpet department, in which he achieved a marked success. His selection of rugs and carpets attracted the attention of visitors, and in many instances sales were made to people from the large cities, who said they could do better here than at home. For about eight years Mrs. R. P. Chase conducted the millinery department and was noted for the fine taste shown in the selection of goods and for her artistic creations in hats and bonnets. Three years ago she gave up this line to assist her hus band in the store. Both have worked hard and will be glad to relinquish business cares and worries for the comforts of their handsome home on upper Main street and their summer home at Rocky Point, Pitch er's Pond. Mr. R. P. Chase has been identified with music ever since he was big enough to sound a note; has mastered ^enough wind and stringed instruments to equip a band, and has been a member of and played in every band organized in Belfast in his day. W hile a member of the Belfast Band, at a time when it had attained a reputation secoud to no similar organization in the State, he collect ed,unaided, SI,200 with which to buy new in struments. He was also a member of San born’s Orchestra, led by Percy A. Sanborn, the well known artist and musician of this city, of whose fine music many of our peo ple have most pleasing recollections. Mr. Chase has also been a successful composer, with more than a local reputation. One of his marches was played at a concert given here by Sousa’s band. His most ambitious work, to which he devoted months of thought and study, was the composition of a local opera, The “Granger’s Daughter,” i , i i.. i — i i»i iitViD.li jnUUUDCU IXCIO UJ “OllIV -- — - musically and dramatically won the warm est commendation. Mr. Chase not only took part in the opera himseli, but arrang ed and superintended all the details of its production, a work of no little magnitude. He had previously shown his dramatic abil ity by his impersonation of Dick Deadeye in a local produetton of the opera Pinafore. In his retirement Mr. Chase will no doubt find solace in the study and practice of music, and though he will be missed from the scene of his former business activities, it is pleasing to the many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Chase to know that they are to remain with us and participate in the social life of the community. YACHTS AND BOATS. The sixth annual yacht race and field day at Dirigo Island takes place Saturday, Aug. 22nd. Carleton Bryant left Bangor Thursday in the knockabout Hilda, recently purchased by Howard L. Bryant, for Northport, where lie will spend the remainder of the summer. —Bangor News.

Greeley, in Farming ton, N. H., July 20, 1908, at the age of 19 years, 10 months and 27 days. She was born in Hampden, Maine, where she attended the public schools; then entered Hampden Academy, where she graduated at the head of her class as valedictorian in June, 1906. She taught in the public schools of Hamp den for the fall and winter terms. In the fall of 1907 she entered Colby college, but was obliged to give up her work on account of ill health and return home. Her condition was not thought to be serious until a few mouths ago, but from that time she slowly but surely failed until the silent Messenger bore her across the peaceful river. _ In the latter part of May she was taken to Farm ington, N. H., in the hope that the change might be beneficial. All that loving hands could do was done to save her life, but it seems it was not for her to recover. It is rarely that one so endowed with intellectual ability aud with the bright promise of a brilliant future is borne away when all seemed so fair and bright. Her happy though quiet disposition endeared her to a large circle of friends. The record of her life is such that brings assurance that she lives on, a shining star, in that holier home where many dear and near were already waiting to welcome her. The funeral ser vices were held at her home in Hampden, where Rev. Elmer F. Pember of Bangor spoke words of sympathy. Many friends sent beautiful flowers as tokens of the re spect in which the deceased was held. r Lines on the death of Susie B. Greeley by Ella E. Rowe.] I stood alone, as in a dream, My senses seemed to rive, I wrung my hands! 1 did not scream But oh,the agony! She was so young, so full of life, Just bubbling o’er with fun, How can I battle in this striie Till my life’s work is done? She was not frail; so well and strong 1 cannot think her dead. We mourn for her; it is not wrong, One joy in life has tied. How can we bear this sorrow now? When youth sat lightly on her brow, We can only pray, and trust. Our loss we know is but her gain, We bear tills heavy load, Our tears flow gently like the ram We walk this weary road. But in the future we shall see Our Susie once again. The meeting aye! what will it be? The bliss will then remain. We strive to see beyond the veil, That death hangs dark between. We know the’s safe and free from pain Though absent and unseen. For Jesus says, His words are true, A place 1 will prepare, For those who love me here below Will dwell with me up there. “Eye hath not seen nor ear hath heard,” So reads the book divine, The glories of the other world Doth in His will combine. Oh Father! breathe into our soul Thy spirit’s holy air. Take our poor hearts in thy control, Redeem us from despair. We will be patient in our lot, We’ll trust to Thee our care, We'll iive for others who have not, Our burden Thou will bear. And some sweet day, we know not when, We’ll leave it all with Thee; We’ll join our Susie ouce again, And live eternally. Just before going to press last week we were advised of the death at the Hotel Som erset, Boston, at in a. in., Aug. Dili, of Mrs. George P. Field; but no particulars were then obtainable. We have since learned that she had been ill with Bright’s disease for a long time and steadily failing for the few weeks preceding her death, but this was not generally known and the news of her having passed away was a shock to her friends in this, her native piace. She was Miss Alma 0., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wil liam Field of Belfast, but for many years had been a resident of Boston, Every sum mer she accompanied her husband on a visit to their old home, in which they both have ever retained a lively interest. The funeral services were held at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Horace B. Pearson, 36 Monmouth street, Longwood, Mass., Sat urday, Aug. 8tb, at 2.30 p. m. James Casey died Aug. 5th at the home of his sister, Mrs. Mary Norton, aged 50 years and 10 months, after a long illness. He was born in Belfast, the son of Michael and Mary Casey, both natives of Ireland, and was unmarried. The funeral was held last Saturday and the interment was in Grove cemetery. Elisha D Wescott of the firm of Canant Patrick Co., Portland, died August 5th at his home in that city after an illnessof over a year. Since last April Mr. Wescott had been confined to his home and in the past two months had been failing rapidly. Mr. Wescott was born in Castine in 1866 and came to Portland in 1886, where he was em ployed as a traveling salesman by Conant Patrick Co., until 1906 when he was admitt ed to the firm. He was well known throughout the State through his member ship with the Knights of Pythias and Ancient Landmark lodge of Masons, as well as through his business connections. He married Josephine Crawfo d and is sur vived by her and her three children. The Stockton Liquor Case. To the Editor of The Journal: In reply to an article in your last issue in re gard to the conviction of one Oscar Gallant for the sale of intoxicating liquors, we would say that we find the article treats the citizens of Mockton Springs, and especially the officers of said town, in an unjust way. When it is necessary for our citizens to be obliged to produce evidence enough to hang a man, if such a law was in force, before they can he recognized by an officer of the law, and after the case had been worked up and they had the evidence of twenty or m ire single sales and the officers were told by our citizens that they were ready to tes tily to all they knew about the case—after all of this it was an exertiou on the part of our citizens to get a warrant served by the parties w hich in your columns havecharged us with being unwilling to do our duty. S. H. Merrithew, Selectman of Stockton springs. Stockton Springs, Me., Aug. 10,1908. Legislative Nominations. At a Republican caucus held in Orono, Aug. 7tb, Dr. M. 0. Feruald was the unani mous choice for representative to the legis lature from the Orono class. At. a Democratic class caucus held in Cam den last week J. H.

Johnson tomorrow, Friday* afternoon at 2 30 o’clock. The speaker at the Young Men’s Repub lican Club tomorrow, Friday, evening will be Hon. Reuel Robinson of Camden.

The pillars extend 7feet below the surface, are 10 feet tall and 4 feet front by 34 feet deep. Each pillar is to be surmounted with an arch bearing a globe which the city will wire for electric lights. This gift from Mr. and Airs' 1. Al. Cobe is appreciated by all interested in civic im provement, and in design is artistic and modern and the construction is of the best. At the regular meeting" of the Improve ment Society, held Aug. 6th, a committee was appointed to procure metal markers for the trees at the park donated by individu als through the society; also for some very old trees about the city planted by our aged citizen, Augustus Perry. The question for a club bouse for a permanent meeting place ior me several eiuos ana sucieues was uis cusseii. This is being done in other cities and the idea has tor a long time been in the minds of many of the prominent members. The feeling is now general that the time has arrived when some definite steps might betaken. A committee was appointed to coufer with the officers and members of the various clubs and to formulate plans at once. A BLAZING LAUNCH. Three LiveB in Peril in tlie Bay. What might easily have been a fatal acci dent occurred in the bay last Monday after noon. Mr. 0. A. Horton, president of the Duplex Roller Bushing Co., Elon B. Gil chrest of that company, and Harry Par tridge of Sandypoint, a guest at the Cobe cottage, Northport, were out in a new launch built by the D. R. B. Co., and had been to Northport and landed a passenger. On the return and when just above the park the engine was acting badly and finally stopped. Almost immediately the boat was in Haines, caused it is thought by a broken live wire coming in contact with the waste oil under the engine. Mr. Horton exclaim ed, “What ean I do, I cannot swim a stroke,” and jumping overboard he began throwiug water into the boat. Mr. Partridge said to him that he was making a bad matter worse, and he stopped, and working his way to the bow of the boat Mr. Horton held on to the painter. Mr. Gilchrest meanwhile had at tempted to put out the fire and was burned about the Ams in doing so. Finding noth ing couiil be done lie jumped overboard and started to swim for the shore, calling to Partridge to follow him, hut the latter said he wouid not leave Mr. llorton. Partridge then removed all his clothing but his pants, in readiness to swim if he had to take to the water. Gilchrest swam toward the shore until taken into a skiff manned by Frank Dunton. Foster Crocker and Marthou Doak had meanwhile put out in a rowboat to the blazing launch and when near it Partridge jumped overboard and swam to the boat and rescued Mr llorton from his perilous position. They were all landed at the Park and a carriage sent for to take them to Mr. Horton’s residence on Church street. Mr. Horton escaped with a wetting, Mr. Gil chrest lost his pocket book and gold sleeve links and Mr. Partridge was minus his clothes, excepting the pants, but saved his watch. Mr. liortcu fitted him out from his own wardrobe, and Tuesday his mother came down from Saudypoint and brought him another outfit. With the exception of the burns received by Mr. Gilchrest, which were not severe, the party escaped injury. Had the accident happeued farther out in the bay, or an explosion taken place, loss of life must have ensued. The launch, what was left of it, was land ed on the shore near the scene of the acci dent and the gasolene tank and engine have been taken out. Hut little remained of the hull. The launch was valued at $650. ASKS FOR INJUNCTION. Sturgis Commission Requests County At torneys to Proceed Against Owners. The county attorneys throughout the State have received the following commu nication from the enforcement commission; State of Maine, ) Enforcement Commission,} Augusta, Aug. 5, 1908. ) Dear Sir; Some time ago we called the attention of the county attorneys through out the State to the provisions of the nui sance statuteauthorizing injunctions against the owners of buildings occupied for pur poses which constitute them nuisances, as being an efficient instrument in the hands of county attorneys to shut off the sale of intoxicating liquors. We consider the feat ure of the law of such importance that after consultation with the governor we now re quest each county attorney in the State to make use of the’power vested in him by the statute, and to proceed in proper cases against the owners of buildings used in such a way as to be nuisances by-injunction process. It seems to us that it is practically in cumbent upon county attorneys to see that criminal prosecutions and injunctions are followed up in oases where liquor sellers continue after one or more prosecutions to carry on their business in the same place, and that repetitions of offenses should sub ject the places they occupy and their own ers to the penalties prescribed by law, Wherever our deputies can do so, we will be pleased to have them give you any assist ance in their power in furnishing inform ation along these lines or in furtherance oi proceedings. Very truly yours, H. W. Oakes, Secretary. Diotated by H. W. Oakes. PERSONAL Miss Edith Ash of Rockland has employ ment in this city.
