neighbor James H. Rankin, Esq., was
admitted to practice in the courts of
Centre county at January term, 1341.
He is the senior, in years, of all the
practitioners at our bar, and with the
exception of Ex-Governor Curtin, who
was admitted to the bar 1n 1837, is the
sole survivor of his contemporary mem-
be s of the bar down to the year 1854.
He very properly concluded to cele-
brate the fistieth anniversary of his ad-
mission by inviting the Judges and
members of the bar to meet him at his
house last Saturday evening. Some
thirty guests assembled at 6 p. m., and
partook of an elegant collation prepared
by his good wife and their excellent
daughter, Mr. General Hastings.
After the refreshments had been en-
joyed the guests resolved themselvesinto
a meeting over which Ex-Governor
Cartin presided. Wilbur F. Reeder,
with a capital off-hand address, greatly
surprised Mr. Rankin by presenting him
with a magnificent gold watch and
chain as a token of esteem from the
members of the bar. Mr. Rankin
was disconcerted by this unexpected
demonstration of his friends,but he suc-
ceeded with a few feeling remarks to ex-
press his surprise and grateful acknowl-
edgments. Then Governor Curtin
took a hand and in an hour's talk re-
lated many interesting reminiscences of
Bond Valentine, James Blanchard,
John Blanchard, James M. Petriken,
James McManus and other older mem-
bers of the bar. He was followed by
Governor Beaver, Judge Furst and
others of the guests in happy congratu-
latory addresses, after which the com-
pany departed with many thanks to
Mr. and Mrs. Rankin for the very de-
lightful entertainment.
The following one of the regrets
which Mr. Rankin received:
CLEARFIELD, PA,, Jan. 22, 1891.
James H. Rank, Esq. !
My Dear Sir—I have your card of invitation
to yourthome on Saturday, 24th inst., on the
50th anniversary of your admission to the bar.
If I could come I would surely doso, for I
remember vividly yourself as a young and
rising member of thebar both of Centre and
Clearfield counties, I remember too with
great clearness my experience as a scholar,
with yourself as tutor,in the Clearfield acade-
my when you helped my fathering steps to a
clearer knowledge cf Euclid, of algebra and of
Cwesar’s Commentaries.
The pathway of life has since been dotted with
many changes, sad and joyful, upward and
downward, for both of us, butI feel, as I
do not doubt you do, that a conscientious ef-
fort to do right under every situation in life,
has been and is the most consoling thought
that now revisits us.
With the kindest of memories and the
heartiest of greetings in memoriam
I am very truly yours,
Hastings WeLcoMEp Home. —The
public meeting that was held in the
court house Thursday evening of last
week was a proper expression of wel-
come on the part of the people of Bel.e-
fonte, inrespective of party considera-
tion, to Governor Beaver and Adjutant
General Hastings, to their old home af-
ter the expiration of their terms of office.

Governor Beaverand General Hast-
ings were conducted to the court room
by a committee consisting of Ellis Or-
vis, esq. J. A. Aikens, L. T. Munson
and Dr. J. L. Seibert. The expression
of welcome was made by J.L. Spangler,
President of the meeting, to which Gov-
ernor Beaver and General Hastings re-
plied in speeches in which they told
with what satisfaction they returned
and again became residents of the old
town hetween whose citizens and them-
selves the friendiest feelings had always
existed, and from whom they had re-
ceived so many assurances of regard
and favor. The remarks of both were
in excellent taste and happily and feel-
ingly expressed. Speeches were also
made by Messrs. J. C. Meyer, E. C.
Humes, D. F'. Fortney, D. S. Keller,
John Blanchard and James P. Coburn,
after which the hands of the two distin-
guished gentlemen were heartily shaken

Court ProceEDINGs.—The regular
January term of the Centre county court
convened last week with the smallest
criminal calendar that a grand jury
had to deal with in this county for
many & term.
Mr. J. A. Aikens of Bellefonte, was
appointed foreman of the grand jury.
Application was made by D. F. Fort-
ner, Esq., for the appointment of com-
missioners relative to the sale of the
Centra Iron Company’s real estate.
The court deferred action. The various
county constables were called forward
and their reports taken.
The criminal cases tried were as
Com vs. Samuel Cooper, surety
of the peace. The defendant was
charged with making threats against his
wife. Mrs.Cooper claims that she obtain-
ed a divorce {rom her husband some time
azo, and ever since he has been in the
habit of making threats against her life.
He followed her to Williamsport and
then to Philipsburg. He there threat-
ened to burn the house down. Cooper
says that his wife is living with another |
man named Griffin and was thus untrue
to him. The trouble was caused by
Mrs. Cooper's having one of their child-
ren which he wanted. The defendant
testified in his own defense denying that
he made threats azainst his wife, claim-
ing thatall he desired was to recover
possession of his little girl for the pur-
pose of giving 1t to his parents for good
raising. The Court sentenced each par-
ty to pay half the cost and the defendant |
to enter bail in thesum of $100 to keep
the peace toward his wife for a period
of one year, and to stand committed un-
| yesterday as most conducive to the ear-
til the sentence was complied with.
Com. vs. Robert Derstine— Assault. |
and battery. The prosecutor, I. G.
Nuband, charged the defendant with
having struck him on the streets of Phil-
ipsburg. The defendant testified in bis
own defense, claiming that he did not
commit an assault, but merely took hold
of the plaintiff on authority of ths con-
stable, who wassorewhat disabled and
desired assistance in arresting Nuband,
for whom he had a warrant. Mr. Barr,
constable from Philadelphia, corrobor-
ated the testimony of Mr. Devlin. Ver- :
dict not guilty and prosecator to pay
Com. vs. Henry Pennington.—As- |
sault and battery and indecent assault.
Georgiana Beck, prosecatrix. D>fend-
ant pleaded guilty to two rourts and
was sentenced to pay a fine of $100,
cost of prosecution and imprisonment in
the county jail for one year.
Com. vs. Arthur Rothrock. F. and b.,
Bella Heverly, prosecutrix. Defendant
pleaded guilty and received the usual
sentence. The Court said that hereafter
all defendants under 25 years of age
guilty of this crime, who may be
brought before it, will be sentenced to
the Reformatory at Huntingdon.
Com. vs. Charles Stewart and Peter
May, Larceny. The bill ignored and
county to pay costs.
Com. vs. Frank Ingram. Assault’and |
battery. The defendant was charged
with striking his wife. He pleaded
guilty and was sentenced to pay a fine
of one dollar, and enter into recogniz-
ancein the sum of $100 to keep the
peace toward his family for the period
of one year, and stand committed until
sentence is complied with.
The Grand jury in their report con-
demned all the water closets in and
about the public premises and recom-
mended making better arrangements for
the accommodation of ladies. They re-
commended the removal of the iron
fence from in front of the court house
yard ; the removal of the telephone
pole down which Wilson escaped ; the
putting of a bath room in the jail for the
convenience of prisoners, and condemn-
ed the practice of allowing visitors to go
in the jail at any and all times, re-
commending that two days a week be set
apart as visiting days. They further re-
commended some needed repairs in the
court house.
L. F. Wetzler, for use of Wm Harper
vs. C. M. Bower, administrator of John
Fetzer. Without going to trial a ver-
dict was found for plaintiff in the sum |
of $2013.67.
C. M. Sellers vs. Buffalo Run Rail-
road Company. This was an action to
recover the value of a colt that had been
killed some time last spring on the road
of said company. Verdict for plaintiff
in the sum of $80. |
R. V. Weaver vs J. A. Cooper.
This was an action for damages involv.
ing parties in the Philipsburg region. !
On the 1st of August, 1889, Mr. Weav-
er, the plaintiff, drove from Osceola to
Philipsburg. While he drove up
Second street ani as he was turning the
corner into Beaver strest, he was run

harness damaged. Both Cooper and his

Verdict for the plaintiff for
Sorp.— After a number of postpone-
ments, involving much legal intricacy,
the property of the Centre Furnace Co.
at this place has been sold. The pur-
chasers being the Fidelity Insurance
Trust and Safe Deposit Company Trus-
tees, of Philadelphia, and the consider-
ations $195,000. The purchase was
made through Messrs. Beaver, Gephart
and Dale, attys’, of this place, Mr. Gep-
hart acting, and the sale was consum-
mated in two bids. First the Furnace
property , proper, with appurtenances
and tenements, was sold for $100,000,and
then the balance,including the ore rights,
ete., was knocked down av $95,000.
"L'his puts the property directly under the
control of all the bond holders, as the
purchasers are merely agents. Specu-
lation has been running rife on the pro-
bability of the early resumption of the
plant, but Mr. Gephart would not ex-
press an opinion on the matter further
than to say that by this sale a number
of legal difficulties were gotten over and,
of course, in this way the condition of
the Furnace affairs is put upon a much
better basis.
There will be a meeting ot the bond
holders, in Philadelphia, on Feb. 6th,
and not until then will anything defi-
nite be known. We view the sale of
ly starting of the plant, for the bond-
ed option over the property, and their
interests will be best subserved by an im-
