It is said that Justico Mills, of the Supreme Court, may take a hand in the deadlock in the board of super- vioors over the contract for the de­ pressed boiler and power house by ordering a grand jury investigation. The village trustees of White Plaius have voted to buy au tierial truck, at a cost of ?5.03.*{, for the I'utou Hook and Ladder Cotnpain The relatives of ex-Mayor tiibson, who was the third Mu\ v oruf Yonkers, serving from to 1^7^, have presented lite portrait to the city Mr. Gibson has lived lor -~> yvarv in London About fifty iiiembfis of the Elks from Westchester County are attend­ ing the national convention at Dal­ las, Tex Of this number twenty- five are from Yonkers The new Democratic admmistra- -~.tion of New Roehelle is at logger- Jieads with the board of public works, which held over from the re­ cent Republican administration.

Mr. Marshall, for many years a cashier of the Port Chester Savings Bank, resigned be­ cause of ill health. It is said that the Dayspring Pres­ byterian church, of Yonkers, will in* vite the Rev.

Rosenheimer, the •wealthy Pelham needle merchant, it • is probable that the case, which has cost thousands of dollars, will be classed with the list of other unsolved tragedies whiqh have been enacted in Westchester County. In the last ten years there have been a half dozen murders committed in the county which have baffled not only the police but some of the best detective talent in the country, but none of the victims was as conspicuous in the .business world as Mr. Rosen­ heimer, who met his death while taking an after dinner stroll with his wife The other victims whose assailants were never discovered were Dr. Louis W. Bertine, of Mount vernon, two negro servants at the Sivanoy Country Club, of that place, and John Hefferman, a coachman, who was killed near the Ardsley Casino while out walking. Besides these there have been at least a dozen Black Hand murders of which the victims wore Italians. It is generally believed that Heffer­ man was killed by mistake by a wealthy clubman, who mistook him for anotherman, but the other trage­ dies are real mysteries Mr. Rosen heimer and Dr. Bertine, as far as could be arcertained, did not have an enemy in the world, yet both were struck down within a short distance of their homes by uuknown assas­ sins In both murders the same weapon was used, either a blackjack or a large stone. The two negroes were simply butchered while sleeping in the attic room of the Siwanoy Golf Club, which is now known as \The KIIOIIB \ the country home of Mrs James A Bailev, widow of the circus man. Tire failure to run down the assas­ sins gouty of these crimes cannot be charged to either the local police or the Sheriff of Westchester County, who followed up every possible clue they could obtain or which was brought to their notice The county also spent a large sum of money in employing detectives, and in addi­ tion to other efforts offered large rewards Aratoma Frank Potter Jocuistita - - Richard Lounsbury White Gates Farm - - H.

Denver, Col, July 16.—With one , turbulent session that lasted until the , aawn was breaking and ended •with i the lomination of William Jennings Hr\a n for President, and a quiet af- ! ternoon session that ended with the nrmination of John Wortn Kern for Vice President, the Democratic Na - | t onal Convention ended its labors on Friday. Jt had completed a tick- 1 et that was consistent at any rate, for a man twice defeated for the Presi- ; dency was at the head of it, and a man twice defeated for Governor of his State was at the tail of It.

Only the reluctance of the New York leaders to present a candidate for second place on tie Bryan ticket was resp'onsiblefor th? nomination of Mr. Kern. William J.
