Several Cases In Whick 'Pawtucket People
#re Interested---Notes.
A decisivn was handéed down this morn
‘ing in ther Appellate Court sustaining the
'position *taken by she License Commis
‘sioners wf Central Falls. The point at
fssue was the Peter Germain case. Rev.
L. G. Horton, the representative of the
Citizem,’ League, appeared before the
Boardmf License ©ommissioners and ob
jected' Lo Germain 'being granted a license
for tls: present liwense yearr The License
Boarf refused the prayer of Rev. Mr. Hor
ton,xund granted:the license to Germain to
sell liquors at the Lincoln House, CUemtral
Rov. Mr. Horwon, in his argument before
the board, claimed that Germaiu’s place
had been raided by the police department,
and had been eonvicted in the lower court,
consequently was not eligible, within the
meaning of the law, to have a license.
"lawyer Robimson, on behalf of Germain,
raised the issue that the Linceln Board
bad no power to refusea license in as
much as Germain had taken am appeal to
. the higher caurt for a final decision in the
matter. Mr. Robinson, at the time, made
a very strong argument upon this point,
and was upbeid by many leading lawyers
of the state. :
Rev. Mr. Horton was not satisfied with
the ruling ‘of the License Board, and
brought preceedings in the Appellate Court
to test the legality of the rulings. About
two weéeks ‘ago the case was .argued by
Lawyer Williiams for Rev. Mr. Horton, and
by City Sojicitor Bosworth for'the License
The case was taken under censideration
by the Court, which this merning sus
tained the License Board im its rulings
held the first of the year. Sewveral other
cases of a similar nature are pending at
the present Lime, and this discussion will

Mayor Tiepke Has Signed the Resolution Pro
. viding For Foundation.
Nothing new stands in the way of begin
ning work on the foundation for the
soldiers’ monument in Wilkinson’s Park.
The resolution making an appropriation of
$lOOO to complete this work has passed
both branches of the City Council, and to
day Mayor Tiepke signed the resolution
making it operative.
It is the intention to start the work with
out further delay, as it is essential to have
the feundation laid before the frost sets in
the ground. The date for dedication is
Memorial Day, and arrangements for this
most important event are already being
discussed by the committee of the Ladies’
Soldiers’ Memorial Association.
W. Granville Hastings, the sculptor, has
completed the model, and it will be taken
to'tlee foundry in preparation for casting
Wednesday. This being the case, Mr.
Hastings kindly invites the members of
the Ladies’ Soldiers’ Memorial Association,
His Honor the Mayor, the members of the
City Council, the Park Commission and
the comrades of the Grand Army of the
Republic to visit his studio at the estab
lishment of the Gorbam Manufacturing
Co., tomorrow to inspect the model. Such
a visit will, no doubt, afford rare pleasure.
‘He Faithfully Served Woomsocket as City
Engineer for Two Years.
Arthur R. Sweet, formerly of this city,
where he is well and faverably known,
' has severed his connection as a city offi
cial of Woonsocket and intends to come
either to this city or Providence, where he
will locate in business. For the past two
years Mr. Sweet has served Woonsocket
faithfully as City Engizeer, Bridge En
gineer and as Superintendent of SBewers.
One of Mr. Sweet’s undertakings in
Woonsocket, which will stand as a monu
ment to his skill as an engineer, was the
construction of the handsome bridge at
Court street. It is understood that the
fortunes of politics cause Mr. Bweet’s re
tirement from office.
While Mr. Sweet has received several
good offers to fill various positions in his
line, his present intention is to open an
office in either Providence or Pawtucket
and not have his income and tenure of
office depend on politics.

Search Has Been Made of the
Spot in Rear of City Hall, -
The Body Was Interred in June, 1831--Now
Thought to Be In Mineral Spring Cemetery.
The search for ihe remains of Joseph
Jenks, at one time Governor of this State,
was continued by Mr. Henry F. Jenks this
morning in Mineral Spring cemetery, but
nothing definite resulted.
Saturday afternoon Capt. Jenks, accom
panied by Thomas E. Beggy, William H.
Phinney, Jesse G. Barber, Hiram C. Jenks
and Robert Grieve visited the old cemetery
which formerly existed between High and
North Main streets. Mr. Phinney, who is
an old resilent of Pawtucket and familiar
with this portion of the city, led tae way
and located the spot where the remains of
the Governor had formerly lain. The place
is about 10 feet east of the site purchased
for the new Masonie Temple.
After a laborer, under direction of Mr.
Berry had dug about four feet the head of
the grave was discovered, evidently Mr.
Phinney’s remarkable memory had served
him correctly. The only traces discovered
were nails covered with a coating of rust,
shreds of cloth and what Mr. Berry pro
nounced, as an expert in such matters, de
cayed wood. The few bones found would
seem to indicate that the remains, or the
greater part of them had been removed.
This morning the search was resumed by
Capt. Jenks and Supt. Berry in Mineral
Spring cemetery at a place in the northern
portion of the cemetery, where Mr. Jenks
had been told the remains had been in
terred after their removal. The result was
unsatisfactory and no traces were found.
- In an interview with a TRIBUNE reporter
this afternoon, Henry F. Jenks said:
‘ “Owing to unfavorable conditions this
morning I was unable to make as thorough
‘asearch in Mineral Spring cemetery as I
desired. Mr. Berry and myself found
nothing, but if the weather perinits be
fore winter sets in, the norther poriion of
the cemetery will be thoroughly searched.
I am inclined to believe that the remains
of Governor Jenks were taken from the
old burying ground in the '4os, and prob
ably taken to Mineral Spring.
“I have spent years in looking the mat
ter up, but this is the first satisfactory
evidence 1 bave received. The statements
o 1 the people &ho bave given me fuforma
tion have been so contradictory that it
was useless to investigate. I am now of
the opinion that part of the remains were
taken from the old burying ground and
'not reinterred as claimed by many old

atiracted the police to that building.
W. E. Coe, county treasurer, was found
in his office with blood oozing from a
wou.id in the back of the head. He was

the playwright, from Melbourne. It was
not signed, but he supposes it was sent
by Julian Mitchell, manager of the “A
Trip to Chinatown” company, now play

great shock to Mr. Hoyt, for the only
McDonald in the compa@ny is Sadie Mec-
Poauld, the clever soubrotte., She left
San Francisco last May with the com
pany, and was to have returned next
month, Margaret McDonald, a sister,
who lives in Brooklyn, who is also a
member of one of Hoyt's companies, said
that the family had received a cable mes

gave no particulars of the death.
Will Practice With Heavy Guns,
Fensacola, Fla., Nov. 30.—1 t is rumored
in military circles that the troops of the
First artillery, now stationed at various
posts on the gulf and Atlantic coast, are
to be concentrated here for practice with
modern heavy guns, which will soon be
in position on Santa Rosa island. The
selection of a site for another battery
leaves no doubt in the minds of military
men that Pensacola ls to be heavily fortl
fled as rapidly as possible, and as the
troops need practice in the handling ot
the modern guns this harbor is deemed
by military men to be the best that could
be selected for the purpose. They would
have the open gulf for target practice,
and at least 1000 men can be comfortably
quartered at Fort Barrancas and the
navy yard.
Murder Made Him Happy.
Perrysville, 0., Nov. 30.—~Horace L.
Stearns, a wealthy and aged citizen ot

was shet in the back, falling dead in the

clared that he had not felt happler in 10
years. The murderer had a bad reputa

sent to the mayor and the board of grand
Jury comamissioners yesterday by district
assembly 49, Knights of Labor. It 1s
claimed by mhose who represent the
Knights ef Labor that the grand jury
is made up almost entirely of members
of the chamber of commerce, and that
the iaboring man is entirely disregarded;
that not a 20th part of the grand jurors
are selected from the residential portions
of this city. Fer this and many other
reasons, it s angued that the panel of
grand jurors should be reconstituted.

When these two small matters had been

The case was somewhat amusing. Mary

was given a hearing this morning. J. Os

licitor Jenks looked after the interests of
the defendant.
Miss Highland, who is a tall brunette and
looks able to handle several men of the de
fendant’s size, took the stand. From her
testimony it appeared that on Thursday,
Nov. 18th, owing to a dispute over wages,
she left the mill, and while packing up her
possessions preparatory to departure
dropped her scissors, and while bending
over to pick them up, the overseer passed
along and in an off-hand manuner applied
his shoe to the rear portion of her anat

plaintiff had a large and vivid imagina
tion, and ihe factk &s.claimed by ber had
never taken place.
Questioned by Attorney Osfleld, as to
whom had taken the place of the plaintiff
at her loom, whether man or woman? The
defendant said it was a “lady.” Attorney
Osfield took due note of this fact, and was
careful to refer to the help by this name
during the balance of the trial.
Rosa Donnelly, the ‘“lady’” of the case,
was the next witness, and her testimony
favored the overseer, as did that of a Miss
Stevenson, who followed her. It took the
court about six seconds, after the two law
yers had given him their views of the case,
to find the defendant not guilty.
