City Hall Notes

Included in the general alarm sent
broadcast through the hills of Fairj
mont ordering all dogs and cats kept
j hid must have been some sort of a refI
erence to a horse. Tom Ford walked
| 11 miles this morning to catch a stray
horse that was hoofing all gardens In
the kingdom. It was a fat pretty black
mare and Tom decided he would ride
her back to town. He did and he has
the equine under arrest. Whoever
owns the horse can get it by paying
its fine.
Mayor Hickman, of Morgantown,
that gentleman of baseball fame, was
in the city jail here today having been (s
j taken there by David Deane. The |
: mayor of Morgantowu wanted to see
what a good city hall looked like and
' of course he made a visit to the jail.
Mayor Hickman was greatly pleased
with the lay out of the city hall and
invites Mayor Bowen to go to jail in
Morgantown some time when he id
visiting the down river village.
Thomas Ford that cop whom everybody
speaks as though he were an
Irishman but who really is nothing
; more than an American, says he never
i laughed so much in his life as he did "

threw bricks into a blackbirds' nest (
and ruined it,' and he leffed and I laf- ,

it. German influence to encourage resiBtt0
ance to army registration and the se,et
| lective draft, uncovered in Texas by a
're I Federal grand jury already have resulted
in eleven indictments. Other arrests
on tho same charge made by
agents of the Department of Justice
apparently are not so closely linked
td- with German influences, but are being
Uy investigated.
te In the Texas case, according to offlm.
clal announcement, by the Department
1B" of Justice, an organization was formed |
' some time ago ostensibly for the pur- <
0* pose of co-operative buying. Its members
were required to take a secret
oath and soon after the enactment of 1
the army draft law, the official announcement
says, "a strong German
influence succeeded in inducing the :
organization to turn its efforts to combating
conscription and high powered
rifles were obtained to intimidate persons
subject to registration and the
officials who will perform the registration.
In some western cities there are evidences
of a movement to defeat registration
but the Department of Justice,
it was officially announced, Is
fully prepared to deal with offenders ,
under existing laws and the new
espionage bill nearlng completion in
Congress which imposes heavy penalties
for such offenses.
Scattered over the country are
sporadic efforts to interfere with registration
but otflcials here do not believe
they are connected.
The Texas case in which German Influence
is clearly established and the
* i- it.
arrest or two mountaineers in suumwestern
Virginia are the most conspicuous
instances.

los in Sensational Denunciation
of Germany
WASHINGTON, May 29.?S. ConBtanldl,
first secretary of the Greek
legation here, today presented his papers
of resignation to the State de
partment and announced his allegiance
to the forces of Venlzelos.
His action, because of bis long connection
with the Greek foreign office
gave the diplomatic corps a shock.
Mr. Constantinidl declared he had been
discontented with being connected
with King Constantlne's government
since the United States declared war.
"As I see it," he said, "it Is the duty , '
of every humane and honest man to
arraign himself on the side of America
and the Entente. The whole terrible
situation has narrowed down to a
simple question of humanity and civil
ization against German barbarity and
bestllity of a type almost beyond human
belief. When a nation of people
calling themselves civilized human
beings begin to sink hospital ships,
murder women and children and use
their dead for manure it is time for
decent men to turn their faces away."

citizen a committee for decorating
