As stated In Tho Journal 'last weok
everything possible would bo done for
tho injured -man, and on Thursday
evening, Assistant Superintendent J.
M. Enright of tho T. & M. V. By. Co.
placed one of the company's best cars
at tho Library corner to which place
Mr. Thornton was carried on a cot
by many rriends, and placed in tho
car which Mr. Enright personally di
rected to be run direct to the Toledo
hospital, and shortly after Dr. Mc
Voty of Toledo, Dr. Bowers of Perrys
burg, and Dr. Comstock of Maumeo,
performed tho operation for the re
moval of the bullet. rAll Uiat medical
skill could do was done for the m
Jurcl man. Loving hearts and willing
hands did everything possible, but the
assassin's bullet had done its cruel,
work too well and Frank Thornton
could not withstand tho shock.
When informed by Dr. McVety on
Sunday noon that ho had but a short
Umo to live Mr. Thornton replied,
"Well, I am ready to go." He then
called tho members of his family to
his bedside, and after giving instruc
tions to his wife, his son and daugh
ter regarding matters pertaining to
tho- family, he bade an affectionate
good bye to his family, his brothers
and other relatives who were present

He requested that tho funeral should

Mr. Thornton had hold the office of
Marshal two terms prior to his pres

careful and conscientious official and
a worthy citizen, respected by all, and
his death is deeply regretted.
His funeral was conducted at tho

Gives Interesting Talk About his
V Hunt for Yeggeman.
.Sheriff Reece and Deputy Roach
spent much, of their time in a search
for ho gang of desperadoes who com
mitted the outrageous crimo in Per
rysburg last week. Concerning their
hunt tho Toledo Blado published the
following interview with tho sheriff:
Sheriff W. S. Reece, who is suffi
ciently strenuous and picturesque to
be classed with tho oldtlme man hunt
ers of tho wild and wooly west, led
tho largest posso on the longest and
most crooked trail of tho day.
Lato last night tho doughty sheriff
nnd a stragling band of deputies left
tho hunt temporarily and returned to
Bowling Green. It would be difficult
to find a moro abused-looking party
of officials. Tho sheriff's boots were
plastered with mud. His trousers
wore torn and wet and his overcoat
will never again bo what It onco was.
Id one hand the sheriff carried a Win
chester, while from either side ot his
belt protruded the handles of two
Colt revolvers. Tho deputies were
also armed to tho teeth. With slouch
hats pulled low and weather-beaten
faces, tho posse looked like a party
of western sheriffs after somo cattle
thief. Tho horses were all that was
Tho excitement of tho chase lent a
gleam to tho sheriff's usually still and
quiet eye and ho recounted the story
of tho man hunt vividly and graphic
"Thero is excitement In many dffor
ent pursuits and sports," ho said,
"but give me the man hunt for tho
real thrills. You may have Imagined
before that you had experienced all
of the different sorts of emotions and
and fears. You may have thought at
some period in your life that you
were excited or even bloodthirsty.
But you wero mistaken unless you
have been in a man hunt, for there
death stares you in tho face, and
tragedy and the commonplace and
humorous pass rapidly boforo you.
"But, I'll tell you about this partic
ular man hunt, that we aro conduct
ing now. About 2 o'clock yesterday
morning I was aroused out of bed by
tho violent ringing of my telephone.
Deputy Marshal Mills of Perrysburg
was on tho other end of tho line, and
told mo that Marshal Thornton had
been shot In a fight with- five yegg
men. I called Andy Roach, -one of my
deputies, and then notified the police
at North Baltimore, Findlay, Deshler
and all the small towns in tho county.
"Andy and I took tho 4:40 car and
rode as far as South street, Toledo.
We were of the opinion that some of
the five men might board the car at
somo point. We found nothing and
returned to Perrysburg and secuied a
description of the men.
"In the meantime I had sworn in
several deputies and a number of citi
zens had also joined us. We wero arm
ed with rifles, revolvers and shotguns.
Several of the farmers carried double
barreled guns, and I cannot imaglno
a more dangerous looking man than a
determined farmer with a shotgun.
"We wero told that after the five
men left Perrysburg thay ran toward
Maumeo and scattered. It was thought
by somo that they might bo hiding In
tho Hayes woods, and wo took up the
"Day was just breaking, and as we
tramped along with our arsenal of al
most every sort of firearm, the posse
attarcted much attention. Farmers
came running from their homes and
wantod to know what was going on.
Often they grabbed a gun and dropped
In line. One old fellow was so en
thusiastic that ho grabbed his son's
flobert rifle, tho only weapon in the
houso, and went along. Soveral per
sons who had heard tho shooting
mistook us for the yegmen and wero
under tho impression that tho desper
adoes had gathered up their friends
and weie marching through tho coun
try in open defiance of the authorities.

Stomach Troubles and Constipation.
"Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver
Tablets aro tho best for stomach
troubles and constipation I have over
sold," says J. R. Cullman, a druggist

Delivered by Mayor Bowers to New
To tho Council.
Section 1750 of the Revised Statutes
of Ohio, provides that tho Mayor shall,
annually, and at such other times as
ho shall deem expedient, "report to
the council concerning the affairs of
tho corporation, and recommend such
measures as to him may seem proper."
While I anrnot prepaied to report
specifically concerning tho affairs of
tho corporation, I desire to make a
fow suggestions and recommendations
which to mo seem proper.
I tako this opportunity to thank tho
citizens generally for tho official ex
pression of their confidence in again
selecting me to preside over tho af
fairs of tho village, in tho capacity
of mayor, and I shall endeavor to dis
charge the lcsponsible and vexatious
duties of tho office to the best of my
ability; but at the same tlruo I ask
that support and co-operation from all
citizens which is duo from the citi
zens to their servants tho officers of
the village and without which support
and co-operation the functions ot the
officers aro practically nugatory.
It would be strange, or at least un
usual for a master to expect any
decided results fiom tho efforts of
his servant, if, in the pursuit of their
common endeavor, that same master
should neglect or refuse to provide
the means wherewith to make the
efforts of that servant in that behalf
effective. The same principle holds
good in the matter of government;
for In a popular or self-gov.ernment
each Individual is charged witll 'duties
which he must perform or a protanto
ineffectiveness of that government
must necessarily result.
Under the laws of Ohio the func
tions of tho Mayor In- Villages aro
somowhat anomalous and peculiar in
that It Is partly executive ami partly
judicial. It is executive iijyto far as
to tho giving of commands, but with a
few exceptions, It becomes judicial as
to tho enforcement of those com
mands. When tho judicial phaso of
the function attaches, tho executive
phase must necessarily cease; for it
if a very well settled maxim of law
that "no man can he Judge and wit
ness In tho same cause."
I havo thus dwelled upon this mat
ter a little moro fully to show, in a
weak way, that tho pathway, even of
the mayor Is not extensively strewn
with roses, and that sometimes clods
of a rather sombre hue cast their
shadaws over his official existence.
I congratulate the people
upon their awakening to the
ijeed and appreciation of pub
lic impiovements. Perrysburg has
taken decided and advanced steps
in tho lino of progress during the past
year. Tho Front street Improvement
Is now practically completed nnd adds
materially to the welfare, convenience
and comfort of the people, and to the
general beauty of tho village. Water
works have been authorized, and pro
gress has been made in tho Installa
tion thereof, and by the closo of the
present year, wo have reason to hope,
a large proportion of our people will
be enjoying the benflt and advantage
thereof. Let this progress continue.
The completion of the Front street
improvement, furnishing as It does,
moro than a milo of a beautiful and
compact driveway and speedway, will
necessarily afford a temptation to tho
owners of automobiles to disregard
the right of our citizens by driving
their automobiles at a leckless nnd
dangerous speed over said Improve
Now while we ought to extend Co all
strangers within our gates all tho
courtesies and privileges to which
they aio entitled, and wo will use
our best endeavors so to do, yet we
cannot, In justice to our citizens, per
mit tho flagrant abuse of- those priv
ileges by tho dilvlng of automobiles
at a reckless nnd dangerous speed
