BECK MAY BE CHOSEN COUNTY CHAIRMAN. ATTENDANTS WILL GIVE TWO PLAYS DURING WEEK If ' Several of the township trustees of Wayne county are confronted with a peculiar situation relative to their bondsmen. Heretofore it has been the custom ot the township trustees to have some one of the local banking institutions to go on their bond, for which favor no interest was payed by the trustee. When no interest was paid, the bank furnishing the bond was favored by having a portion, of the funds placed with it from which interest was deriv ed. Since the state law provided that the finance board apportion the public funds among the banking institutions, it deprives the trustees of exercising their own pleasure about placing the deposits. As a result, a trustee can not exercise his own prerogative, but may be compelled to placo the funds in another bank from the one furnish ing him bond. It is probsble that sev eral of the trustees will either have to pay interest from now on or else se cure their bond with one of the regular appointed depositories.

WPMS VXfflMV REFLECTED to SOURCE OF TROUBLE Henry Schell Claims That Sum Spent for Winburn Was His. MEREDITH DENIES THIS. WINBURN CLAIMED THE MONEY NOT SCHELL'S; THAT HE WON IT IN A GAME OF CRAPS AND DID NOT STEAL IT. When arrested, Julius Winburn, the colored man who was given a three months' jail sentence for burglarizing the Henry Schell saloon of $9.00, had just $8.40. A part of this money was in a pocket book, .the remainder was in an envelope. Schell claims the entire amount. Sheriff Meredith contends Schell is only entitled to $4.05. All but $4.05 of the money Winburn had was spent at his request to secure tobacco, fruit and other things for his use while waiting trial. After Win burn had been sentenced by Judge Fox, Sheriff Meredith offered Henry Schell the remaining $4.0r. Schell re fused to accept this amount. He stat ed that he wanted the amount Win burn had on him when arrested, $8.40. Schell informed the authorities fciat all the money Winburn had, was taken out of the saloon cash drawer. Schell says that unless the entire amount Winburn had is paid over to him, he w... file suit to recover the same. Sheriff Meredith states that the money speut to secure various things for Winburn while he was awaiting trial was taken from the en velope. The money in this envelope, Winburn informed the sheriff, was won shooting craps and Schell had no claim on it. Sheriff Meredith says that before he used any of this money for Winburn, he secured the authority of the court. The $4.05 in the pocketbook, which Winburn informed the sheriff was paft of the money he had stolen from Schell. is still in the hands of the sheriff and he states that he is per fectly willing to give it to Schell any time he claims it. The entire matter is a case of misun derstanding and will undoubtedly be settled outside of court. EXPRESS COMPANIES BUSY DAY AND NIGHT Thousands of Packages Deliv ered in the City. EAGERNESS MANIFESTED. . Monday and today were unusually busy ones with the express companies in the city and in older to prevent a congestion of Christmas packages at the offices it was necessary to keep express wagons going day and night. Hundreds of parcels have been distri buted to Richmond homes, all mark ed: "Don't open until Christmas." While this admonishment appears on Christmas packages, yet it is doubt- fut if many of the recipients have been able to restrain their curiosity until Wednesday. thU concerns too, read carefully, u, aid well's Srrap Pepsin it poafttvelr ennrmc eed t cur's te62est$oa. coaatipatioa. tick hd- MONEY WON AT CRAPS He Will Be the Candidate of Both Democratic Factions As Neither Cared to Push a Man to the Front. The race to secure the republican nomination for the office of prosecut ing attorney, has developed into a school masters' campaign. So far there have been only two candidates to announce themselves for this of fice and both of them are teachers in the county schools. The latest to take the field is Joe C. Burgess, teach-. er of the Whitewater school. A ' short time ago Charles Ladd. a tea cher in one of the Center township schools, blossomed out as a candi date, j A year or two ago Mr. Burgess was admitted to the Morgan county bar. He became a partner to an aged attor ney and for a time enjoyed a splendid practice. His partner suddenly died and when his estate was settled the law library was disposed of. Being a struggling young attorney and having no law library at his command, Mr. Burgess was forced to abandon the law and become a school teacher, com ing to this county and being assign ed to the Whitewater school. He has wanted to resume the prac tice of law ever since necessity forc ed him to abandon it. Friends have persuaded him to make the race for the prosecutorship and after giving the matter much consideration, Mr. Burgess has decided to announce him self as a candidate. Charles Ladd was admitted to the bar about a year ago. He is a popular young man and well fitted to fill the office he seeks. Beck For Chairman. Since George Harris of Fountain City has decided to enter the race for the democratic district chairmanship he has announced that he is not a candidate for re-election to the coun ty chairmanship, which position he has filled so well for some years. The democratic party in this county is now split up into two factions, the Harris faction and the Schlllinger fac tion. As yet neither faction has start ed grooming a candidate for the of fice of county chairman. E. B' Beck of this city and a leading member of the democratic party in this county, will probably be chosen to this office to avoid a factional fight. Mr. Beck has not affiliated himself with either the Harris or Schlllinger crowds so both factions can safely come out for him when the choice of a county chairman is made. Mr. Beck has not sought the office. When representatives of the Schillinger and Harris crowds approached him with the proposition to become county chairman Mr. Beck said that he was a busy man, but if the office was of fered to him he would accept it.
