Some Claim Kfüirient on Fast Sile of

Oilier Points to Consider.
The city commissioners are novf con
sidering the apportioning of the pave
ment expense on North Michigan and
Laporte streets. They will have a
meeting in the near future, when they
expect to make the proper apportion
ments. There are several matters
which will come up to determine their
judgment. As residents on the east
side of Michigan street Buttered more
from dust than west side residents, it is
argued that they have received more
benefit than residents on the west side
of the street. Some think that resi
dents near the end of the street have
not been so much benefited as tboee
near the central and in the business
portion of town.
It is true that the business portion
gets the most benefits, bat it is also
true that the street is wider in the busi
ness section and if the assessments are
made on the basis of frontage, the bus
iness property would pay its proper
proportion. It would be assessed for
31 feet to the center of the street, while
the residence property would only be
assessed for tweDty feet to ceDter of
street. This would appear to be a fair
division of the expense as between the
busineeb and residence sections.
It does not appear that the argument
as to the residence property near the
end of the street receiving less benefit
than residence property along other
portions of the street is very well
grounded. There is no reason to pre
sume that the pavement will not be
extended a quarter of a mile or more
in the future and in that case these
properties near the end of the paved
street at present would be near the cen
ter of the improvement in such an
event. The settlement now establishes
the expense of all residence property
adjacent the improvement for all time.
These properties at the end of the
street could not be legally assessed on
the extended improvement in case the
pavement should be extended.
Hence, in justice to all, the matter of
proximity to the beginning of a street
improvement can not be taken into con
sideration. As to the east side proper
ties receiving greater benefit than west
side properties, there is no question but
that the commissioners should giveam
pie consideration. It does not seem to
the Independent that any great differ
ence should be made on account of the
arguments that have been so far ad
vanced. No doubt the most equitable
division of the expense of the pave
ment would be to charge each property
owner exactly the cost of paving In
front of bis property. No one can
rightly take objections to this kind cf
an apportionment.
The city commissioners are A. North,
Daniel Harris, Wm. Kyle, Wm. Young
and Wm. Conger.
Leading Elkhart Citizen Is Called to His
Long Home.
Goshen, Ind., Nov. 13. Col. Ruel M.

A Young Couple from Maxiukurkee I.it
lIe to Serious Trouhle.
Charles Chisenberg and Grace Sookee,
of the Maxinkuckee neighborhood, in
Marshall county, came to Rochester
lagt week, and contracted more trouble
than is customary in matrimonial con
tracts. They went to the clerk's office,
represented that they live in this
county near Richland Center, and that
they are aged 21 and 1'., respectfully.
On this representation they were
granted a marriage license and Judge
Troutman was called and performed
the marriage ceremony.
Soon after they were gone word came
from Plymouth that they had applied
for a license there, but it was refused
for the reason that the girl's guardian
had warned the clerk that ehe is not
yet lfi years old. She draws a pension
as a soldier's orphan and her marriage
not only stops this, but puts both of the
young people in a position liable to
severe punishment for misrepresenting
their ages. It also makes the clerk
and the officiating magistrate liable to
prosecution if anyone should institute
proceedings, but they 6ay the couple
lied to them with euch apparent earn
estness that they were completely de
ceived It is reporied that the judge
and the clerk took a fast team to over
take the couple and unmarry them, but
this could not be verified up to thetime
of going to press Rochester Sentina!.

A Peculiar Case.
J. I. Wheeler, who made his home for
along time with Mr. and Mrs. W. D.
Lillybridge and who died about a year
ago at the soldiers' home, left a small
amount of money and two women, one
from New York and one from Starke
county, both claiming to be his widow
and want the money. It seems that he
married a lady in New York, whom he
deserted and came to this state, marry
ing a lady from Starke county. If the
lady from Starke county can prove that
he was divorced from the laay of New
York, she will receive the money and if
not, the other lady will get it. Part of
the evidence was heard IdforeJudge
Capron Monday.
The lady Trom New York as sonn
as she heard of the death of Mr.
Wheeler, applied to the pension board
at Washington for pension, stating that
she was his widow and the pension was
granted to her.
NewHV Hit of Unpublished History.

which Joseph W. Rrill amassed a for

a small way in Laporte, Ind., where he
married. Rusiness did not prosper rtnd
he went to the silver mine, of old
Mexico for a fortune. In a battle with
striking natives he saved the life of an
old American owner in Mexico, won
his heart and was made a partner in

him for the lirst nd much more after
