In The Circuit Court.
Court convened Monday morning, and
the criminal docket was taken up. Juijges
Urner and Motter presiding. The crim
inal docket this term is comprratively
short, and as many of those charged with
the more serious offenses have pleaded
guilty, the trial o{ the cases on the dock
et promises to take much leas time than
was expected a week ago.

swer a charge of gambling and betting

On Saturday afternoon Chas. E. Toms,

ick and gave himself up to the officers.
Toms was indicted by the recent grand
jury, upon the charge of placing poison
in a spring, the water from which was
used by the family of Mrs. Bessie Pat
terson, and also upon the charge of un
lawfully stabbing a cow. Toms heard of
the indictments, and came into the city
before a warrant was served upon him
and gave himself up. He was held in
the sum of S3OO bail on each charge for
court, and furnished the necessary bail
and was released.
Twenty years in the Maryland peniten
tiary was the sentence imposed upon
Hanson Dorsey on Saturday afternoon,
when he pleaded guilty to the charge of
attempting to assault Mrs. Della Ste
phens, residing at the time a short dis
tance east of Frederick. The attempted
assault took place on August 15th and a
few days afterward Dorsey was taken
to Baltimore by Sheriff Grimes, who
feared an attempt might be made to
lynch the negro. Wl.ei Sheriff Grimes
returned from Baltimore, to which place
he took Edgar Shawen, who had escaped
from him two days before, he brought
Dorsey along back. The matter was
kept very quiet, only the court, State’s
Attorney, aud the few persons around
the jail, knew of Dorsey’s presence in |
Frederick. He was taken into the judges’ j
chamber on Saturday afternoon, pleaded
guilty and was given 20 years in the pen
itentiary. Sheriff Grimes left at once
with his prisoner. On his way down,
Dorsey remarked to Sheriff Grimes that
he had been given an awfully long term.

Must Pay 98,696.22 Overdraft.
The Brunswick Furniture Company
must pay to the receivers of the Bruns
wick Savings Bank, the sum of $8,696.22,
this representing the sum which the fur
niture company overdrew its account in
the bank. This decision was announced
in court Tuesday morning by Chief Judge
U rner. The case was tried about 10 days
In the trial oi' the case the bank set up
the statute of limitations as its plea,
claiming that it should not be compelled
to pay overdrafts for a period further
back than three years. This was denied
by the court, which held that the trans
actions continued from the time of start
ing the account in 1897, and each deposit
the furniture company made could be
taken by the bank and applied to the old
debt, and that this was presumed. In all
it was found the furniture company had
deposited since 1897 the sun. of about
$72,000, and had drawn out over SBO,OOO.
The case was one, in that such
a case has neverheen passed upon by the
Court of Appeahrof Maryland, although
the general principles applying to the
case have been laid down again and again
by the court.

tage of a splendid and unsurpassed scenic

“Not only will the sale of Red
Cross Christmas Beals lie continued
this year, but it will be carried on
along broader lines, and will lx;
larger and more comprehensive than
ever before,” says Dr. Livingston
Farrand, Executive Secretary of the
National Association for the Btudy
and Prevention of Tuberculosis, in a
statement issued by the Press Bureau
of that organization.
Dr. Farrand denies absolutely the
statements which have appeared re
cently to the effect that Postmaster
General Hitchcock had forbidden the
| sale of Red Cross Beals. “No official
; order has leen issued on this matter”
i says Dr. Farrand. “On July Ist the
Post Office Department decided that
| they could no longer carry mail mat
| ter which bore stamps or seals which
! resem 1 tied postage stamps. The de
j i-ign of the Red Cross Beal, however,
has lx*en approved definitely by Post
-1 master General Hitchcock and the
j Department, and it does not come
j within the prohibitions of this order
'of July Ist. It hardly looks us if we
i were going to abandon the sale, when
we have already placed the order for
the printing of fifty million seals and
for large quantities of advertising
“The Red Cross Seal this year will
be from a new design drawn by an
artist in Washington, D. C. Every
effort has been made to get as far
away from the conventional design
of stamps and seals as possible. The
new seal will depict a very pretty
winter scene. In the lower right
hand corner will appear a snow cov
ered house with a pine tree, also
snow covered, in the foreground. The
scone is at night and the windows are
lighted. In the back ground are trees
and snow-capped hills. In the upper
left hand corner will appear a small
red cross. The entire design is en
closed with a heavy red circle. The
year is expressed in Roman numer
als. The only other words on the
seal are, “American Red Cross, Merry
Christmas, Happy New Year.” The
corners of the seal, which will lie
square, are in white, thus giving the
effect of a circular seal when it is
affixed to letters and packages.
“It is very important that every
one lx*ar in mind that the Post Office
Department will not carry any letters
bearing these seals or any other non
postage stamps upon the face of the
letter. Red Cross Beals may and
should lx* placed on the back of let
ters and packages.
“Agents for the seals of Red Cross
Beals have now been appointed in
every large state of the United States.
More territory will be covered this
year, and more agents will sell seals
than ever liefore. We need and want
a million dollars from the sale of
Red Cross Be,ds in Hill.”
