Mayor Charle.s T. Green, who surrendered the ofiice to Ellis M. Chester at ij o'clock today, has had the honor of ser\ing the city as chief ex-i-cutive longer than any of his prede-cesKf)rs. He assumed ofiice on the iirst Monday in September, 1902, and was re-elected twice, once for two years and the third time for three years and four months, making his entire term of service as mayor, seven years and four months. During This tim»" he was absent from but two meetings of the council, once because ' of sickness and the other time from a mental lapse, he liaving forgotten  by tee ioHowir:g nu^n-1 ^^^ meeting.

Sheriff Campbell of Ivalamazoo and his dei)uty, George E. Knowles, captured a desperate horse thief the other side of White Pigeon only after a charge of buck shot from the sheriff's shotgun had pierced the bandit's clothing and entered his sit'e. last Saturday morning.  Campbell had been notified from (iiurd Hapid," that a ti.-ar. of horses valued at JGOO had l)een stolen from a farmer near that city, and the sher-ilY and his deputy secured a team and sleigh and started out on a scouting tour. Fortunately the two men struck the trail o fthe thief and were soon ui)on him. His pursuers called upon him to surrender, but Ills only reply was a shot and a hurst of speed from the team.

Burris is so ill he could not appear in court, and the state's interests are being looked after by P. L. Turner and E. W. Vail, assisted by B. G. Schaefer, while the dijfense is in the hands of Deahl & Deahl, Drake & JIubbell and Samuel Parker, the last named of South I {end.  Between sixty-five and seventy witnesses have been subpoenaed, and each side is trying to keep the other ifotn ascertaining the identity of the rf!.si)ective witnesses' identity until they ajipear on the stand. The court has i)rdered the sheriff to keep the lists as such a secret.  Following the Salinger trial (ho court will hear the re-trlal of the somewhat noted Compton-Benham case of Elkhart.  FALLS 125 FEET AND DIES  Horrible Fate of Iron Worker at the Shrlners' Temple In Indian, apolls Today.  [Ky United Press Special Service.] Indianapolis, Jan. 3.—Edward Cunningham, an iron worker, missed his footing and fell 125 feet today while  wr.rVintr of tho Shrlnara' Toranlii. .IIlii-  ,T. E. Cochran, h.ead of the Angldile Computing Scale Co., noticed a (irowd of eniployes grouped in a portion of the main iloor, to which ne had been inveigled just before quitting time Friday evening, and inquired of the nearest man what the e.K-ici' etnent <va; . '"•"he ujan re^ iu-tj th,i. he guessed some of tho men were li.ghting. or words to that effec:. ?tlr. Cochran, who will have peace if he has to fight for it, shouldered his way to the center of tno group and insisted on knowing what was up. Foreman Bradford replied with a short but significant address as he handed iMr. Cochran a magnificent traveling bag—the gift of tne em-[)loyes, who had been remembered by .Mr. Cochran so handsomely at Cnristmas time. He's planning a trip now just to get a chance to use that bag.  W. E. Root, who retired from the Iiosltion of head chemist at the .Miles •Medical Co.'s labratory last Friday, found himself surrounded by fellow employes of all departments wher, he happened to go in the shipping room, and W. B. Riggle made a presentation speech in turning over to him a complete hunting outfit, wiiu which he is expected to protect himself from the bears and other wild animals which the donors surmise may invade Mr. Root's fruit farm in the Okanogan valley. Wash., to which he will start in a couple of weeks. .Mr. Root had nothing to say—he was thinking too deeply and the lump in his throat was such that even a pail pill couldn't budge.  • P. 0.

Short, and is moving fumlshine.«» to the ^ offices . * '  idenf  O. J. llall, a doctor of trees, who tiikes a scientific as well as material delight in fostering his "pets," declares that the peril to Elkhart trees from Siin .Jose scale, oyster scale and some others not so frequently mentioned is great, and the owners who have become alarmed and are appealing to him to treat their treps are more than he can give his time to, but that he is willing, even anxious, to impart all possible information to those who may be interested, and he suggested today that, if a hall was provided and the public invited—say for next Saturday—he would be glad to appear before the assemblage and give such directions as inquiries might suggest were needed. He would do it without price, he says. He was referred to the board of public works, with the intimation that the use of the council chamber might be granted.  Mr. Hall said that $500,000 worth of Elkhart trees, chieily fruit, were threatened, and when challenged on his estimate of the value of trees responded with the assertion that the trees in Elkhart were worth more than $1,000,000. "Fandy what the town would be without them," was his way of suggesting an estimate.  He says that one lot of trees—in G. B. Pratt's residence grounds-were valued at $10,000 by their owner, and Mr. Hall is now treating a shade tree on Franklin street whose owner has said ho would not have it die for $1,000.

NEW YORK HEARS THAT BETTER-MENTS INVOLVING MILLIONS ARE CHECKED BY FEAR.  TAFT'S MESSAGE WEDNESDAY  Some of Its Recommendations Will Undoubtedly be Strongly Opposed—Federal Licenses Advocated for Corporations.  Clarence W. Mast.  Clarence W. Mast died of typhoid fever at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. FVederick Mast of No. G15 Middlebury street, at 12:30 P. m. Saturday. He came from Conneaut, Q., a week ago, suffering from the disease which caused his death. Mr. Mast was born in this state September 7, 1880. The only near surviving relatives are the parents.  January 23, 190G, he had a narrow escape from electrocution while in the employ of the Indiana & Michigan Electric Co. at its Elkhart power house. He came in contact with a rod which was heavily charged, and received a terrific shock and burns to his hands and arms that confined him to his bed for several weeks.  Funeral services will be held at the home at 2 p. m. Tuesday by Rev. Somerville Light, superintendent of the Goshen district of the M. E. church. Burial will be in Grace Lawn.  New York, Jan. 3.—Railway improvements and extensions planned for the present year with a view to enabling the transportation lines to * catch up with the demands of a rapidly increasing tonnage—betterments which v.-ould cost at least $300,000,-000, and possibly $500,000,000—are being "held up" awaiting congressional, labor and other developments.  This )act became known Saturday when several oi the big eastern roads were asked for. informution regarding their "budgets of expenditures" for 1910. Usually the budgets are completed and approved during the final days of the old veac, and bv Niw  ' I  Year's day the railroads are ready to announce their policy as to expeudi-ti.res for the year.  Wall Street is Gloomy. i This it far from the case this year, and the beginning of li)10 finds Wall street rather gloomy with respect to the general railway situation. In fact, it is claimed that the conditions are an e>:act parallel to those existing during the early part of 1907. Strangely enough, the same cause is assigned for the present uncertainty as obtained at the opening of 1907. Then it was declared to be legislation, state and national, which the railroads I'elt to be hofaile to their interests.  Regar^ied as Only a Threat, liowever, in many quarters the doleful prediction that expenditures for improvements will be curtailed is regarded as only a threat of the railroads on the verge of legislative considerar.ion of restrictive measures.
