The New Castle Courier says: Many believe that Geeorge Hazzard will not be again seen for some time in Henry county, since the historian made no appearance or motion for a continuance in hi collection suit against Cyrus VanMatre at Richmond Monday, the case having been ventf ed to the Wayne circuit court. It was very naturally expected that Mr. Hazzard would make representations to the effect that it was a physica impossibility for him to be present at the hearing and would ask a con tinuance, in view of his reported run away accident at Trenton, N. J., re cently. The plaintiff presented noth ing and Judge Fox promptly dismiss ed the case. Mr. VanMatre and his attorneys were at Richmond ready to proceed with the case. A cross-complaint had been filed in which Mr. VanMa tre alleged that his signature to the contract was secured through fraud and he asked that the agreement be cancelled. Judge Fox rendered a de cision on this complaint and the con tract was cancelled. It was fully expected that Mr. Haz zard would prosecute his suit against Mr. VanMatre and, if successful, use it as a foundation for similar suits, His failure to make any kind of a move In the case has ted many to be lieve that he has abandoned all suits of this kind. It remains to be seen If the histor ian will make an appearance to de fend himself against the charge of forgery, which has been continued until the pecember term of court. If he does not, his bond will be for feited, and the chances are that Henry county will have seen the last of George Hazzard.

Publishers Press! Washington, Nov. 21. The war de partment issued the following state ment concerning the negro troops or dered dismissed at Fort Reno: 4Tn the matter of the order dis charging the enlisted men of the three companies of the Twenty-fifth infan try issued by the president, applica tion was presented to the secretary of war by a number of persons of stand ing asking for a rehearing by the president, on the ground on which the action was taken. The secretary tel egraphed the president of the applica tion and delayed the proceedings of the discharge until the president could indicate his wishes. The secre tary was meantime called out of town. No answer was received from the president. The secretary on his re turn did not feel justified in further delaying the execution of the order of the discharge, especially in view of the fact that the secretary then learn ed that the president had fully and exhaustively considered the argument against the order of the persons who applied for a rehearing. Accordingly the secretary directed that the pro ceedings for discharge be continued without delay." Secretary Taft received a dispatch from President Roosevelt and issued the following additional statement: "A telegram was received from the president after the previous state ment was given out at the war depart ment, in which he declined to suspend the discharge unless there are new facts of such importance as to war rant cabling him. He states that the action was taken after due delibera tion, and that th only matter to which he can pay heed is the presen tation of facts showing the official re ports to be in whole or in part untrue or clearly exculpating some individ ual. If such facts later appear' he can account as he deems advisable, but thus far nothing has been introduced to warrant the suspension of the or der, and he directs it be executed." Secretary Taft says that , Immediate steps will be taken to recruit colored soldiers to replace the men discharg ed. The members of the three com panies, who were on furlough at the time of the Brownsville affair and three members who are to be tried by courtmartial will not be mustered out. Secretary Taft flew straight in the face of the president when he sus pended the order directing the dis charge without honor of three com panies of the Twenty-fifth infantry, for declining to divulge the names of the soldiers who "shot up" the town of Brownsville, Tex. President Roosevelt is an arbitrary man and the outcome of the differ ence between him and the secretary of war is awaited with much interest and anxiety. It is conceded that seri ous results may follow, as serious as retirement of Taft from the cabinet. Two Injured in Wreck. 'Publishers Press YOungstown, O., Nov. 21.
