Life of Mckinley.
Our first shipment of the Halstead
Life of McKinley was exhausted at
once and another is on the way. The
phenomenal success of the book led
the author, Murat Halstead to bring
suit against the publishers to recover
the copyright, but the courts held
against him and the publishers suffer
ed no delay. Mr. Halstead has
written six other books for the same
publishers but the Life of McKinley
has already outsold them a)!, though
enormous numbers of them were sold.
Following the court's decision Mr.
Halstead attempted to belittle his
own work but the book itself is the
best evidence that the brilliant writer

to See the Sights.
The Bremen fair opened on Wed
nesday with rain, which kept many
at home on that dav and interfered
with the day's program. The occas

tering clouds, but the sun soon came
out and it proved to be the banner

A Warm Tribute of Respect by the Dead
Lawyer's Associates.
Circuit court convened
regular October term this
for the
with all the officers and most of the
attorneys present. The first matter
presented was the report of the com
mittee appointed to frame resolutions
upon the death of Amasa Johnson,
whose name is now for the first time
in forty years omitted from the list of
attorneys of the Marshall county bar.
Upon the resolutions offered by the
committee every lawyer in attendance
spoke and these short tributes were
marked by deep feeling and expressed
the profound regard, respect and ad
miration in which the dead man was
held by his professional associates.
Judge Capron, who spoke last, could
scarcely restrain the tears as he reflect
ed upon the friendship of nearly half
a century now broken by the cold
hand of death. The resolutions are
as follows:
Inasmuch as death which removes
the monarch from his throne as
ruthlessly as the peasant from his
cottage and before which all human
opposition is vain, has laid his icy
fingers on a member of the Marshall
County bar, we are again called upon
to render the tribute of respect due to
the memory of our deceased associate,
and to make a brief record of our ap
preciation of his virtues and talents
and of the more prominent incidents
of his private and public career, and
to extend to his afflicted family our
sincere sympathy and condolence in
their bereavement.
Amasa Johnson was richly endowed
with many of those more excellent
qualities of head and heart which go
to make up the character of a valued
and useful American citizen. He
was plain and unassuming, full of
practical common sense, honest,
conscientious, benevolent and kind,
ever ready to extend a helping hand
to those in need; n-j friend ever went
to him and found an ear deaf, or a
heart closed to his appeals. Patriot
ism with him was more than a senti
ment; it was a deep-seated principle.
Love of country and its institutions
was his inspiration. He was a warm,
true friend of the soldiers of the Civil
War his companions fn arms. He
manfully performed what he believed
to be his duty toN his family, to his
friends, to his country and to his
God. lie was not ambitious of politi
cal honors nor was he a place seeker
by nature. His political principles
were chosen from sincere convictions.
Though his life was marked by no
great events nor extraordinary vicis
situdes, it was also undimmed by any
dishonest act. He always and every
where aimed and endeavored to be
right and to do right. He was the
enemy of no one. In Iiis personal in
tercourse he was manly, generous,
candid, sincere and the worthy recipi
ent of the friendship and confidence
of all" who knew him. Duty, honor,
and integrity were active principles of
his daily life and he squared his con
duct by their requirements. ,As a
member of the Methodist Episcopal
church he was not ashamed of the
Gospel of Christ. He was a kind
father, a loving husband and sincere
christian ;delighting in the calm content
of his home and fireside rather than in
the loud acclaim of men.
Therefore, Resolved, that in the
death of Amasa Johnson the Marshall
County bar has lost an able, honest,
conscientious, upright and unsullied
member, the community a worthy,
true, honorable and just citizen; his
family a kind, generous, affectionate,
gentle, noble and loving husband and
father; and his bereaved wife and chil
dren we tender our most sincere
sympathies and kindest condolence in
this their greatest sorrow and deepest
Resolved, That, as an additional
mark of respect to the memory of Mr.
Johnson, long a distinguished member
of this Bar, the regular business of
the Marshall circuit court be now
suspended in order that his former
associates may pay fitting tribute to
his public and private virtues.
Resolved, That, as a further
testimony of respect to the memory
of the deceased, the Marshall circuit
court, at the conclusion of these cere
monies, shall adjourn.
..Resolved, That, these resolutions
be spread upon the records of this
court and a copy thereof be transmit
ted to the family of the deceased.

Human Hearts.
'A play of absorbing interest'1 is
the description given of "Human
Hearts", one of the kind which never
seems to grow old. It was nrst pro
duced six or seven years ago and fre
quent repetitions only seem to have
enhanced its valu3 as a drawing at
traction. The story , is a simple one
of leve and devotion to diity; dealing'
with the life of one Tom Logan, who
is a blacksmith in a small village in
the Arkansas' Hills. Tarough the
machinations of a scheming villain he
Is unjustly accused of a horrible crime,
is convicted, and sentenced to serve a
term of years In States prison. Of
course in the end it is discovered that
he is innocent and all his wrongs are
righted. The location of the play
admits of superior opportunities in
the way of scenic display, of which
the management is said to have taken
every advantage. It is promised that
a more than ordinarily capable com

The amount in the treasurer's
hands at the time of the meeting was
$2,267.79, includiug the receipts of
October to date,and bills were allowed
to the amount of $1,399.14, leaving
a deficit of $131.35 now existing. The
receipts of the treasury before the
next council meeting will be sufficient
to cover the shortage and probably
more, but it is plain that a loan must
be negotiated and that the city's bus
iness must be conducted chiefly on
borrowed money until next tax-paying
time. The redeeming feature of the
situation is that the city's credit is
the very best and the improvements
are worth the money. "
W. W. Hatch was present and
stated his opinion that it would be
unwise to open up South Michigan
street for paving so late in the season,
considering the chances of bad weath
er. He spoke' of the delays in the
work on the other two contracts, ag
gregating five weeks, and explained it
by showing how the brick makers had
failed to perform their agreement to
furnish material. Mr. Hatch said
that he expects to have Laporte street
between Center and Walnut open for
public use by Thursday. The council,
by a formal vote, u greed that the
South Michigan street work shall be
postponed until spring.
The street commissioner was direct
ed to put in a catch basin at the
southeast corner of Michigan and Jef
ferson streets and was authorized to
sell the old 4-inch wooden water
mains at 2 cents per foot.
The waterworks commissioner re
ported the completion of the work of
laying mains on the south side and
he city attorney was granted further
time to report on the legality of the
charge for meter rent by the electric
light company.
The city marshal asked and was
given authority to repair the calaboose,
some recent inmates having kicked
out the ends and escaped.
Gilson Cleaveland asked permission
to build about 25 feet of new board
walk at his residence lot and the mat
ter was referred to the stree.t commit
tee with power to act.
The city engineer presented plans
and specifications for the proposed
Durr sewer on Washington street, and
they were accepted, approved and
adopted. The bids are to be opened
October 21 and the council took ä re
cess to that date. Councilman Par
ker was absent at the meeting, having
gone to Ohio to attend a funeral.
