Teat The Cobbler Is Un der Arrest to Wait Examination. HE PLEADS NOT GUILTY Complaint Against Him For Keeping Disorderly House May Change To One More Serious. J. J. Teat was arrested Monday and brought before Justice Moulton on a charge of keeping a disorderly house. He pleaded not guilty and was placed under $800 bonds to appear in court Friday. Not being able to furnish them Deputy Sheriff Webster took him to the county Jail in Ionia. It has been rumored in the city for some time that Teat had been doing crooked things at his rooms over the Torrence Automobile Hospital for some time and had it not been for an occur ence which happened Friday night he might still have been at liberty to ply his nefarious work. Marshall G. M. Blett made the complaint on evi dence furnished him by Lois Hoi ton a young girl but 16 years of age. She boards at George Beck with 'a and on Friday evening after supjter came down town where .she says she was met by Teat near the depot together with Kate Bender who introduced her to him. Teat invited her to take a walk and asked her if she would go to his home and stay with a young lady cousin all night as he was obliged to go to his farm in the country and she was afraid to stay alone. She ob jected saying she had to be back to the boarding house by nine o'clock. Teat urged her to go up and call on his cousin for a short time, which Id. he following and when inside of his rooms he locked the doors. There was no person in the shape of a cousin tehre and he compelled her to remain all night, releasing her in the morning. When Mr. Beckwith started out for his work in the morning he met her coming home and to him and his wife she related her story. Miss Hoi ton formerly resided at Blair and came here last January. Her mother' is dead and her father who is dissipated has told her to take care of herself. Teat who has been doing repair work, in Divine's shoe depart ment, is about forty years old and he came here nearly eight months ago It is said he has a divorced wife in Battle Creek and a daughter about V- 't ' : , TO HONOR THE DEAD Aaron G. and Eliza Hubbell, Pioneers of Orleans Township It is only occasionally that a couple travels along life's pathway together for half a century meeting and battling its sunshine and storms, its trials and hardships. One or the other falls by the way side lefore the fiftieth anni versary arrives of the day when, as young and lighthearted youths they began the journey together. That happy event falls to the lot of but few, and when it does come into the life history of those whose heads are silvered by time's unceasing ravages and fate has dealt gently with them, the occasion is a pleasant one ineeed. Mr. and Mrs. Aaron G. Hubliell are respected pioneers of Orleans. They were born at Burlington Falls, Otsego county, New York. Mrs. HuMidl's maiden name was Eliza Brown and on the 23rd day of May, A. D. ls:, she was married to Mr. Hubbell at ( 'oopers town, N. Y.. the home and birthplace of James Feniinore Coojier, the author and poet. Forty years ago they came to Michi gan and settled on the old farm where they now reside in Orleans, when it was almost an unbroken wilderness, Mr. Hubbell is 73 years old and is still able to look after the farm work ami do a lot of hustling himself. Mrs. it. .i.i. ..it ..i.i. i . . jiuuueu, uiuiougu iz years oi age, is a worthy and loyal helpmeet to her hus band, and lively for one of her years. Their only son, Israel L. Hubbell, at torney at law and real estate owner of this city, a resident here for the past eighteen year, accompanied by his wife went out to tlie old farm on the 2.5rd to help them celebrate the day, and before returning presented each with a $20 gold piece as souvenirs of the pleasant occasion. Announcements have been made of the event as follows: 18.9 1909 Israel L. Hubbell announces the 50th anni versary of the marriage of his mother and father Eliza and Aaron G. Hub bell May 2.Jrd, 1909. Israel L. was six years old when they came to Michigan and he helied his "pa" till the soil for time. Memorial Sunday and Decoration Day to be Fittingly obsrved Here.- Arrangements have been completed for a proiwr observance of Decoration Day. The Memorial sermon will be given by Ilev. J. Frank Jackson in Holy Trinity church, Sunday morning. On Monday the Post and Corps will assemble at the G. A. It hall at 9:00 o'clock u. in. and march to the Bridge street bridge where the Corps will give their ritualistic water service for the Navy and Marines hurried in the sea. 1 hey will then march to the Congre gational church where Rev. Edrie Col lins will deliver the Decoration Day address under the following program, Singing. Invocation. Reading of Lincoln's address at Get tysburg. Original Poem Frederick Andrews Bush. Address by Rev. Collins. Close by singing 'America." From the church the Post and Corps will march to their hall. They will re-assemble at River Ridge metery at 1.30 o'clock for the G. A. R, cemetery service. They will then proceed to the Smyrna cemetery at 2.4Q o'clock; then to the Otisco cemetery for services at 3:30 after which they will disband. WILL VISIT BELDING in sixteen years of age. It is also said he was a deputy sheriff at Niles near which city his father lives on a farm. A more serious eharir that of running a disorderly house may be lodged against him. The officers of this city are on the ftlert ami nronose to keen on the look out for law breakers and esieeially the kind charged against this man. If the charge proves true and Teat is found guilty of carrying on such dis reputable practice the courts should not handle him with leniency. He is the same man of whom Floyd Bailey borrowed the suit case to bring booze in from Greenville and according to developments in that case a hilari ous time had been planned to le held that evening in his rooms. There is a law to protect young girls from the alurements of such leacherous beings and now that it has been set in motion let it proceed when ever it is violated. iionAtrHtne case IZt'heldon deemed it advisable to drop the case a gainstTeat who now says his name Is "Peabt" for keeping a disorderly house and charge him with the more serious one that ot assault and battery. This was done Wednesday and on his plea of guilty Justice Moulton sent him to the Detroit House of Correction for 65 days. It is very probable that he will never apjiear in this city again and our cit izens hope this true. There are a num ber however, who mourn for unpaid bills he left behind.
