A STORMY WEEK AT IKISUTURE Democrats Have Everything Own Way EPWORTH LEAGUE SOCIABLE Humor Prevails About Festive Board At Methodist Church JOHN E. BUNKER ELECTED Seating of Michaud, Democrat In Place of Thibodeau, Republican Gives Democrats Two Majority ILLUSTRATED LECTURE TRY GARMONG CASE MONDAY An illustrated lecture, The Cedars of Our Great West, will be given at the high school assembly hall Friday evening, Jan. 22, at 8 o'clock by Dr. Mintin Asbury Chrysler, head of the biological department of the University of Maine. The lecture will be under the auspices of the Women's Literary club and will be entirely free to the public. Dr. Chrysler's lecture is unusual and his pictures are superb. One of the most sensational civil cases ever tried in Bangor is on the docket for next Monday—this being the suit of Miss Elizabeth Garmong against John B. Henderson, the Washington clubman and millionaire. Miss Garmong, who has established a residence in Bangor, claims that she met Mr. Henderson in Bar Harbor and that there ensued between them a romance, in the course of which he asked her to become his wife. He refused to make good his promise, she claims, and as a result she now asks damages in the comfortable sum of $250,000. It is intimated that she will have a very interesting story to relate upon the stand. Mr. Henderson denies having proposed to Miss Garmong, a»d says he never j gave her cause to believe that he cared j for her. He denies, almost in their | entirety, the allegations in her writ. The vast sum asked by Miss Garmong the prominence of the defendant and the element of romance and mystery | that, rightly or wrongly, have been | infused into the case, serve to make it of exceptional interest. LADIES' NIGHT FEB. 1 Feb. 1 hLs been chosen for Ladies Night of the Current Events club when Mrs. Florence Whitehouse of Portland will speak on Woman Suffrage. This meeting will be open to the public, and both men and women are invited. The topic for discussion at the club Monday is A Free Press, A Free Pulpit, and A Free Platform. The freedom of the press will be discussed by C. B. Bolles and Everett B. Harvey; the freedom of the pulpit by Rev. A. C. Larned of St. Saviour's church; and the freedom of the platform by Prin. Harry W. Kidder of the high school. All men are invited. Everything was thrown into line for the Democrats by the unseating of Levite V. Thibodeau, Wednesday, so that they elected their candidates, Elmer E. Newbert of Augusta, state treasurer and William R. Pattangall of Water ville, attorney general. The state now has a Democratic governor and council and majority in joint convention of the legislature which allowed the election of the secretary of state, I John E. Bunker of Bar Harbor, and the i other state officers named above. The I Democrats have now 77' members in I the house to the 67 Republican and 5 Progressive. That the deadlock which eicisted in the joint convention of the 77th Maine legislature would be broken at the session Tuesday seemed to be the impression when the convention was called to order a little after 10 o'clock that morning by President Hersey. On motion of Mr. Sanborn of South Portland, the unfinished business of the convention was laid on the table and the matter of election of seven members of the executive council was taken up. President Hersey announced that he and Speaker Trafton who had been paired since the balloting began would vote on all future ballots. Representative Campbell of Island Falls, a Progressive, stated when the roll was called that he did not wish to vote, but the chair ruled that it was compulsory. Representative Libby of Merrill, a Progressive, did not vote. The ballot resulted as follows: Whole number of votes cast...... 181 (Continued on page 8) | A rrost interesting evening was spent by the young people of the Epworth League of the Methodist Episcopal church when 33 gathered about the festive board in the vestry Thursday evening and enjoyed a clam stew which well showed up the culinary ability of Albert Stevens. After the repast, which also included pickles, doughnuts and coffee, the diners settled back in their chairs and the president, Everett B. Harvey, as toast-master, surprised a few of the unsuspecting with the call for a toast. Wit and humor characterized the pleasantries branished back and forth, anecdotes were told, and the musicians among the number when called upon added to the pleasure of the banquet the part of the rrinstrel with music and song. Toward the last, the pastor, Rev. Dr. Leitch, was called upon and he with Claren:e Dow, superintendent of the Sunday school, and the heads of the different departments. Mis. Leitch, Mrs. Harvey and Miss Rosa Willis, added a serious note to the evening. When a few games had been enjoyed, the company dispersed, feeling the value of an evening so spent in a manner tending to mental and moral development as well as one full of pleasantries. Hancock county senators and repre-sentativai ^ serve on the following joint standing committees of the 77th legìdàture: Senator Chatto—State Prison; Sea and Shoie Fisheries. Ward Wbscott of BlueWU—Labor. Frank S. Lord of Ellsworth—Appropriations and Financial Affairs; State Prison. wilus A. Ricker of Castine—Education; Federal Relations. Senator Scammons of Franklin-Commerce; Merchantile Affairs and Insurance; Sea and Shore Fisheries. Cecil Wasgatt of Deer Isle—Insane Hospitals; Taxation. Joseph Small of Mt. Desert—Pensions; Sea and Shore Fisheries. A. B. Holt of Gouldsboro—Salaries and Fees; Public Building and Grounds. E.J. Morrison of Eden—State School of Boys and Industrial School for Girls TO BOLD RtOCK Probably Two Story Wooden Structure NEGOTIATING FOR A SITE PREFER BAR HARBOR Frank R. Moore of Ellsworth has bought all the Hotel Bluffs buildings at Mt. Desert Ferry, including the hotel building, two cottages and stable. The buildings are on land leased of .the Maine Central railroad and will be removed. The purchase also includes all the furniture and furnishings of the buildings. This Mr. Moore has already removed to Ellsworth, and is selling off. One of the cottages, also, he has already sold, together with the stable. It is probable the other cottages will be sold and removed. The hotel will . be torn down and the timber sold on the spot or taken to Ellsworth. The removal of the Bluffs mayks the passing of the last vestige of an attempt to boom the Maine Central terminal as a summer resort. After a few seasons of fair prosperity, the summer people passed it by for Bar Harbor and the other island resorts, or to join the cottage colony at Hancock Point. ELLSWORTH ENCAMPMENT Structure And Lot To Cost About $25,m—Probably Stores On Street Floor That Island Lodge is considering the erection of an Odd Fellow block the present year comes as a surprise to many of the townspeople of Bar Harbo?, but the plan is on foot and prospects of carrying it through are reported as being good. A wooden building, such as is proposed, together with the lot they I expect would cost somewhere about ; $25,000. Some weeks ago the lodge appointed a hall lookout committee. This committee has been quietly at work and at the lodge meeting Tuesday night made a complete report of all its labors. Preliminary plans for such a building were shown, and the committee was empowered to obtain working plans and specifications for such a building as described. If the plans of the committee meet with the approval of the lodge and such a building is to be constructed, it will probably be located on Cottage street, according to the chairman of the committee, who requests that his name be with-held; but the lot has not yet been decided upon. The lodge requires for its usage a floor space of about 60 x 100 feet but the size of the building cannot be determined until the lot has been chosen. If the building is to be of the dimensions mentioned, the committee would make it two stories high. The upper story would be fitted up to serve all the needs of Island Lodge, Mt. Desert Encampment and Unison Rebekah Lodge, and the lower floor would be fitted up for stores. FENNELLY IN CENSURED PLAY Peop.e of Hancock county may be interested in learning that Parker W. Fennelly of Northeast Harbor, who served last summer as The Times correspondent from that place, is taking the part of the surgeon in the play, Across the Border, staged in the Toy Theater, Boston's naw play house in Copley Square. Mr. Fennelly, in his Red Cross uniform, stands out in the forefront of the picture of the field hospital scene published in the last issue of the Boston Sunday Post. Last week Mayoi Curley threatened to close the theater because in the , scene spoken of one character, The Man Who Curses, in his opinion cursed too much.

It is gratifying to the people of Hancock county, who responded so generously, to learn that the Hancock county table led all the others, the sum earned by that table being $117.12. One of the most enjoyable occasions of the winter was the installation of the oriicers of Rubie Chapter, 0. E. S., of Winter Harbor held in Masonic hall Jan. 11. Although it was not public it was partially so. each member inviting one guest, so there wiis a goodly number present. Piist District Deputy Grand Matron, Mrs. Alice Hooper, conducted the installation ceremonies in her usual graceful and pleasing manner assisted by Past Matron Bertha Torrey with Past Matrons Ethel Young and Cora Guptill as grand marshaii and grand chaplain. The presentation of riowers in the East by Past Matron Bertha Torrey was an interesting feature, the marshall with the sisters representing the fire rays of the i-entral star, in their white dresses, making a pleiksing picture. The music by Morrison's orchestra always good, was partii-ulariy so on this occasion, and that, as well as the singing of Mrs. G. E. Hanson and Miss Julia Grover and the recitation by Miss Marian Tracy, were highly appreciated. Immediately after the closing of the Chapter the farce entitled, Not A Man In The House, was presented by the ladies; Mrs.^ Helen Smallidge and Mrs. Bertha Torrey as Mrs. Bings and Miss Lucy, looking their parts; Miss Lena Joy in her cap and specs was certainly "Aunt Belinda" to the life and Miss Ethel Torrey as Kate, the Irish servant, and Miss Leonora Tracy as Jessie, were characters in themselves. A supper consisting of salads, nad-wiches and pasty was furnished by the members and served by Mrs. Abbie Morris to all present; after which the young people played games until a late hour.
