A pp'ocial' to the Press from Logan, 0 says: Some weeks airo the Boston fiafn iVnnalt anil Trust Company filed Buit'in tbenocklrii County common pleas court, to foreclose a mortgage securing the bonds of tbe Ohio & Western Coal arid Iron Company; Whose recent failure Is still so severely felt throughout tbe valley, Monday the nwor apd oross-petition of W. D. Lee was iimif, ana u.Diag iajr tomans a wias sensation and to exnose to the nublls curiosity some of the interesting history t the various ooal speculations in this part of the country. . . . . . . ! 'The OhloA Western Coal arid' Iron Company was formed on the ruins of the nooKing tool ana- iron wmpsny, the, Buohtel Iron .Company, the XX Comi paoy, the Hop Furnace Company and the Standard Coal and Iron . Company; tbe last named havlnir been the Imme diate predecessor pf the Ohio &. Wostn ern,. , These companies . were owned by .various eastern capitalists, ,nd included among their projectors s number of well known public men, as well as a number oi men who were equally as well known bn account of their bold speculation in tne mineral rusouror-s oi this State. Among the latter, and by far the most prominent, was WtE. Lee, formerly of Newark, O., but now a resident of New lor it. whose answer and cross-petition. now ton file, Is of s mput interesting zharaotor. .. The 'answer.-. oovers fifty pages pf type-written manor and fully seta out the scheme by whloh the new company, which had no! exlstenoe, his tory or capital of .' its own', obtained the title to 6,000 acres of. land in consider ation of assuming the liabilities upon it and which were to be paid by bonds, se cured in turn by a mortgage on the iden tical property transferred from the old companies to the new. . t . r Among the creditors of the old com panies was W. D. Lee, who, by the terras of the agreement, was to receive the enormous sum of SI. 803.250 in bonds of tbe Ohio & Western. These bonds wore to be a part of the authorized issue of $3,500,000, secured by mortgages to the Boston Safe Deposit and Trust Com pany, Which is about to be foreclosed. Lee claims, however, that the bonds were never Issued to him but put in soak or sold by J. M. Oliddbn, the presi dent of the company, of Ulidden & Curtis, whose failure a year ago precl niteted the ruin of the Ohio A Western, It is also charged that bonds woro fraud ulently Issued to other parties without consideration and accepted by them in Daa lattn. The answer insists on these bonds and the ones converted to the use of Glldden being turned over to Mr. Lee so that he may pro-rate with other creditors who hold their bonds in good faith, out of the proceeds- of the mort gaged premises, which Include about 6,000 acres of coal lands in Athens, Hocking and Perry oounties. The great mineral resources owned by the Ohio A Western in these three coun ties has necessarily been inactive since its failure, which has, therefore, been most far-reaching In Its extent and char actor and has greatly depressed the in dustries and enterprises of the Hocking valley and a speedy decision of this suit Is anxiously looked forward to by our people.

I had boen encaged bv the house as stock elerlc only a low weeks, writes corre spondent of the American - Commercial Traveller, when one day tbe bead of ths firm came to me and said : "Well, Mr. Blank, how would you like to go out on the roadl" "First-rate," said L "I have not had any 'experience, but I thick I can get along; any way, I should like to try ft" So it wss agreed that 1 should make my first trip tho next week.' Howl looked forward to that day when I should pick up my "grip" and launch out into the world s full fledged traveling-man. 1 My headquarters were at Sk Paul, and for that town I put out)uatesthesun was sinking one bright day In the month of July. A large number of my newly joined brothers were On board the train, laughing and joking, as 1 after ward found out, as only traveling-men can. It was just dark when the train stopped at a little depot some eighty miles from the place where I started.' A number of passengers got on and off. ' Among the in oomers was an old man - carrying an old-fashioned carpet-bag in one hand and a round parcel in the other. He seated himself just opposite to where I wss sitting, and gazed around with abowildered look. It was quite evident that he was not accustomed to this mode of travel Pres ently the conductor's voice is heard in "Tickets, please; got your tickets ready." Ths old gentleman starts, a blank look comes in his face, his trembling hand is thrust first Into one pocket, then another. The carpet-bag Is opened and searched thor oughly. The little round package Is opened. but reveals nothing but sdry loaf of Vienna bread. Pockets are searched again, bet to no avail; be has l"st his ticket The con ductor passes on, promising to come around again. A traveling man steps up to the now prostrate form, and, patting him on the back, asks his story. The perspiration stood on the old man's brow, his eyes were wet with tears, and amid sobs he told his story. He was a Dakota farmer; bis par ents had both died one week ago that day He was telegraphed to come, but could not raise money enough to pay car farea distance of about ' 1,300 miles. Including return. A traveling sales man who knew him to be a poor but honest man had said to him : "Here, take my mile age book; go and bury your father and mother, and when you return give me bock the book and pay me for what you use whenever you can." Thus It was that the old man was enabled to see his father and mother before they were laid away. This, which was a 2,000 mile book, was th one he lost. He had sixty cents in his pockot, a loaf of dry Vionna bread by his side, a wife and six children at home, 600 miles away, and no ticket. This was the story which touched the heart of the traveling man. I'll subscribe nve dollars, boys," said th nowly-made brother. "So will I," said an other, and in live minutes thirty-four dol lars, taken from the pockets of traveling salesmen, was banded to tbe old man to pay his fore and koep what was ovor. lie could not thank bis rescuers his heart was too full; great tears rolled down his check and his head was hung with the thought that he was now dependent upon charity. The conductor returned for his lure, and humbly the poor old man was tendering him the money when his eyes fell on something on the floor. It was ttie mile age hook. -With a yell be bounded"down on it. "Thank God, I am saved from charity. Sir, oh I sir, here is your money. I have found my ticket," and the glistening eyes soon like lire. He could not be prevailed upon to take tbe money nor could he pour blessings enough upon tbe heads of his newly-found friends. The money was finally handed back to the contributors and tbe last we saw of the old gontlemoa from Dakota ho was sitting in tho smoking-car, happy as a king, whiling uway the hours with a loaf of dry Vienna bread.
