They propose to hereafter compel the shylocks to be satisfied with the legal rate, which is 36 per cent. The trustees of the Tilden estate have secured a lot in a new portion of the cemetery at Lebanon Springs and will erect a* very imposing monument to the memory of the late Samuel J.

A case involving apparent forgery and impeaching the honesty of a\ woman residing at Philmont, came to light last week. It appears that a Poughkeepsie lawyer was engaged in the settlement of the estate of Angeline Vosburgh, of the town of North East. Among .the heirs is one Harriet Dillon. Her share was $91.42. The lawyer sent the necessary papers in the matter, receiving the proper answers and supposed everything was regular. He sent the check in a registered letter, and that came back properly endorsed and having been cashed. This was last March. A few days ago the lawyer re ceived word from Harriet Dillon that she had not received her money at all. Con sidering the fact that the lawyer had all the receipts and vouchers for the money in his possession, this was decidely in teresting. It has been learned that the check which the lawyer sent in settlement got into the hands of a young woman named Theresa Dillon, who cashed it at the store of F. P. Vosburgh in Philmont. She admits she had the money, and has offered to return it as soon as circumstances per mit. She says she has used some of it. She also claims she has a grandmother named Harriet Dillon, and it was a mistake on her part. In the face of the letter setting forth all of the facts, telling her about her brother ’ s share, and naming many mem bers of the family, and also the receipts showing the estate of Angeline Vosburgh, would indicate that the matter must have been done with a deliberate idea of steal ing the mdney . The check passed through F. B. Vosburgh, one of the indorsers, into the Farmers ’ Bank of Hudson, the City Bank of Poughkeepsie and the Pough- keepse Bank, upon which it was drawn. An 1 investigation is now in progress and some arrests are expected to follow. L ater — It was reported yesterday that Mr. Brown, . of Poughkeepsie, the attorney in the case, visited Philmont on Monday and secured k satisfactory settlement with Theresa Dillor^, the young woman who canie into possession of the check and who had claimed to. suppose that it was in tended for her. Consequently Mr. Brown made no charge against the girl. PARDONED BY THE PRESIDENT. Presidept Cleveland on Saturday, granted pardons in the cases of William Gould, Jr., sentenced to six years in the Albany penitentiary, and Anthony Gould, sentenced to six years in the Erie peniten tiary, for abstracting funds from the City National bank of Albany. The former was sentenced in September 1891, and the latter HUDSON IAN MURDERED. WM. G. ORTON KILLED AT SCHE NECTADY. A Fellow Workman Made Coarse Com ments Upon Orton ’ s Intended? Wife — When Orton Started to Kesent the Insult He Was Knocked Unconscious With a Blow on the Head — His In juries Proved Fatal — His Assailant Now In Jail. William G. Orton, aged 24 years, a native and former residentof Hudson, was buried at that city last Thursday after noon. He died in a hospital at Sche nectady three days previously from in juries received at the hands of an assailant named Abram Steers, who is now in jail and will no doubt he held to await the action of the grand jury on a charge of manslaughter. The circumstances which led to Orton ’ s death were as follows:. It appears that the deceased left Hudson to seek employ ment at Schenectady several months ago, and had for some time been an employe of the General Electric company. Only the day before the fatal assault he had gone to work for another firm, intending in the course of a few days to return to his shop work. On April 4th., Orton and Steers were sent by the firm to assist in excavating a cellar. Daring the afternoon Orton was shoveling earth from the bottom' ’ of the. excavation which was five or six feet deep and Steers stood near the edge of the cellar shoveling the earth in a wagon. Three other workmen were present be sides several bystanders. A young woman passed, whom Orton, it is said, was soon to marry. She spoke briefly to him and also to Steers. After she had passed. Steers commented inde cently upon her character with a view, as it would seem, to tease Orton, whose intentions as regards the girl he doubtless understood. Orton artlessly construed the remark as an insult both to himself and to the girl and resented it accordingly. He made some effort in the way of climb ing up the bank in the direction of Steers, but was met 4 with a sweeping blow delivered by the latter with the shovel which he held in his hands. The position of Steers enabled him to impart the blow with an effect not intended, and Orton was struck senseless. Orton was injured by the blow much more seriously than at first supposed, and was taken to the hospital for treatment. His subsequent symptoms indicated some internal in j ury to the skull. His condition steadily grew worse until he lapsed into a state of unconsciousness from which he never rallied but gradually sank to his death. Deceased was of a goqd-natured dis position and of a religious temperament. He was a member of the Emmanuel Baptist church of Schenectady, and was much interested in Salvation Army work in that city. Previous to going to Sche nectady he had served a term in the United States navy, and his record of honorable discharge bore testimony to excellent de portment during his term of service.

Could a stranger have stepped into the parsonage, he might easily have imagined himself among a company of gypsies. A pleasing programme of music and recitations was rendered by the members of the Epworth League, an especial feature being the instrumental selections performed upon combs. At the close of the entertainment, supper was served. The proceeds of the social amounted to over $19. NIVERVILLE. Mrs. Eli Kipp has been in New York attending her brother ’ s funeral.

Resolutions adopted by Friendship Lodge 125, I. O. G. T., at their last meet ing ; W hereas , A kind and all-wise Heavenly Father has removed from us a loving brother, and our worthy Chief Templar, William B. Mead, be it — Resolved, That a copy of the following resolutions be sent the bereaved family, published in the local papers, and spread upon the records of the lodge. Second, That it is with great sadness that we learn of the death of our beloved C. T., who was always at his post of duty and faithful to. every trust reposed iu him. He had a character above re proach, and as C. T., discharged the duties of that official in a kind, courteous and gentlemanly manner. We feel that it is a great loss to our lodge, church and community, but our loss is heaven ’ s gain. We shall miss his smiling face, words of encouragement, hearty shake of the hand, in all our lodge and temperance work. His life has been an exemplary one, and worthy of imitation by every young man in this place. His life is without blemish, and one can ihear nothing but words of praise and commendation. This lodge largely owes its existence to his inde fatigable efforts to maintain it. The cause of temperance has lost a faithful worker, a great friend and the lodge a shining light. We mourn his loss, but feel that his soul has been summoned to the Grand Lodge of Heaven, where the misery and wrongs of intemperance are unknown. Committee, A. T. B ennett , B ertha . M.

E. church will probably be as follows: Preaching morning and evening, just who will occupy the pulpit, is now of course a matter of conjecture. As there were no preaching services in the church Sunday morning, the session : of the Sabbath school was held at the above mentioned hour, 10.30 a. m. There were no services in the evening. There are more tramps seen- on our highways now-a-days than there have been in years before. They are doubtless, a part of the many good things brought about by the Cleveland administration. William Bailey has been confined to the house for the past few days, suffering from heart trouble. His advanced .age, 84 years, tends to make an illness of this nature especially dangerous.
