week there has been comparatively little
work done at court. There isa large at-
tendance, however, and a long list to be

We have visited the public buildings of the
county and beg to say, with reference there-
to, that the court house offices and jail were
found in a neat clean condition. Want of re-
pairs are noticeable in several places, and we
recommend the following : We recommend
that the top of the wall, or coping on the wall
surrounding the jail, be covered with either
galvanized iron or wood, to protect the new-
ly cemented wall; also a change in the
plumbing in the cells of the jail, by supply-
ing a stationary basin for washing so as to
avoid the wetting and consequent rotting of
the floor. We recommend, either the re-
moving of the fence around the jail park, or
the replacing of a new one of a modern style.
We recommend a new roof for the court
house and repairs to treasurer's office by
papering and painting the same.
We would further recommend, if it is
possible, to erect a waiting room for ladies,
with toilet rooms attached.
We compliment the commissioners upon the
improvements made to the district attorney's
office, arbitration room and stairway leading
to the court room, also other minor improve-
ments about the court house, and recommend
that they go farther in the matter of improv-
ing the county property, °
We respectfully tender our thanks to the

officials for their courtesies and assistance
rendered during our deliberations.

THE CASE SETTLED.—The libel case
which promised so interesting during the
fore part of the week has been settled and
the Hon. Benj. Focht has taken his string
of lawyers back to Lewisburg, possibly a
wiser and certainly a poorer man.
The case was brought by editor Fred
Kurtz, of Centre Hall, against Mr. Focht,
who is editor of the Lewisburg Saturday
News, charging him with criminal libel in
having cast certain reflections on his finan-
cial integrity.. It promised very interest-
ing by reason of the eminent attorneys em-
ployed. Ex-judge Bucher, of Union county,
would more than likely have been here.
Ralph Strawbridge, a brilliant young jurist
of Lewisburg, and Hon. James Scarlet, of
Danville, were on the ground to help Mr.
Focht and a number of Bellefonte’s best at-
torneys had been retained in the case. The
Lewisburg contingent had even. gone so far
as to bring along a mascot in the person of
Rev. Elias Riehl, a lanky old Mennonite
preacher, whose faith rendered him useless
as a witness, because believers in it dare
not take an oath, so he returned to his
mother on the afternoon train. It was not
because of the oath business he returned,

thought of such a condition barring him

Buffalo valley where he owns several fine
farms. He enjoyed the ‘“‘car ride’ very
much and is said to have been particularly
pleased with the spiritual visitations that
came to him in the sepulchral gloom of the
tunnels en-route.
The case was settled, Tuesday afternoon,
when Mr. Focht signed a paper in which
he declared that he had had no designs
against Mr. Kurtz and certainly was sorry
to have libeled him, if such were actually
the case. He paid $50 toward the costs,
also. The retraction was made a matter of
As to the merits of the case we are not
sufficiently conversant with the facts to
make a full statement, but had it gone to

fact that no malice could be shown because
he had not even been acquainted with the
prosecutor and that he did not intend to
libel him by the publication of an article
that was calculated to reply to a charge,
made in the Lewisburg Journal, which is
edited by Mr. Will Kurtz, a son of the

PANY.—A new industrial organization was
effected in this place, on Saturday, when the
Jenkins iron and tool company sprang into
existence. ;
Some time ago we published an account
of an invention made by W. R. Jenkins,
of Jenkins & Lingle, founders and machin-
ists, by which it was possible to make steel
rakes at one revolution of a machine. The
machine was designed to cut a rake com-
plete from a sheet of solid steel, so that all
that would be necessary to finish it for the
market would be the insertion of the wood-
en handle.
was practically successful from the start,
though rakes have not yet been manufact-
ured for the market. It was hoped to or-
ganize a company first then push the work
on a large scale.
With this end in view a number of gen-
tlemen met here, on Saturday, to investi-
gate the machine and look over the plant.
They were so pleased with it that a com-
pany: was organized with the following of-
ficers : Andrew J. Deitrick, Baltimore,
president ; James T. Armstrong, Balti-
more, vice president ; F. Chapin, Mil-
ton, secretary and treasurer ;"W. R. Jenk-
ins, Bellefonte, manager. The directors
of the company-are W. E. Jenkins, Milton;
A. J. Deitrick and James T. Armstrong,
Baltimore, and J. H. Lingle, and W. R.
Jenkins, Bellefonte.
The capital stock will be $15,000 or $20,-
000. Work will begin at once on the
manufacture of rakes. They are a simple,
durable, light garden tool and promise to
be good sellers. In addition the company
will make miner's picks and other imple-
ments. The work will be carried on here
for the present, but it is possible that if
the business grows as anticipated a plant
will be secured at some other point.

who is a very charming girl and decidedly pretty.
They spent the evening in town, returning home
on a night train. Mr. McLaughlin says the coal
business has been dull ever since wages were in-
creased. It seems to have been the design of the
operators to stop work just as soon as they had

Ever since the Ettlinger affair, at Coburn,
some of the good people of that community
have been incensed at certain reflections on
their intelligence that were cast by the .
Daily News of this place. A great injustice
has been done an inoffensive newspaper
man as a result of this situation. Mr. N.
S. Bailey, editor of the Magnet, has heen
charged with the articles in the News.
Just how the people of Coburn should
have confounded the two papers we are at
a loss to understand, but it might have
been because of Mr. Bailey’s former asso-
ciation with the News. A number of years
ago he was its editor, but severed his con-
nection with it to accept the. position of
city editor of the Williamsport Zimes. For
the last three years he has been editing the

A QUIET WEDDING.—At 7:30 last
Thursday evening, at the residence of J.

The officiating clergymen were Rev. J. C.

at the residence of Rev. McArdle, in this
place, last Thursday evening. Miss Mary
McSuley, a sister-of the groom, was bride’s
maid while Harry Walkey did the honors
for the groom.
The bride is a pretty young Lock Haven
girl who met her husband while visiting at
the home of Rob’t. Miller in this place.
The groom is the second son of James Mec-
Suley, of Logan street, and is a decorator
by profession.
We wish the young couple all the happi-
ness possible for them to enjoy.
A SAW MILL BURNED.—The saw mill
property, a short distance east of Bald Eagle
Furnace, on the B. E. V. railroad, owned
by Henry Hoover, caught fire about 9
o'clock last Saturday night and was totally
destroyed. The fire was either accidental
or incendiary as there was little or no fire
in the furnace at 6 o’clock when the hands
quit work. A man was seen loafing about
the place during the evening and he is sup-
posed to have caused the fire. The loss is
2,000. There was no insurance.

——Lewistown had secured the next
division encampment of the N. G. P., but
because the popular subscription fell $1,700
short of the amount necessary to procure
the land the encampment will more than
likely go to Mt. Gretna again.
