FBIDEKIOK, MO., W10HK80AT MORNING, APRIL 10, 1935 EIGHT FACES TODAY COUNTEE FIGHTS EXTRADITION IN CHICAGO COURTS Local Officials Say Negro Has Been Given Four Hearings. NEW RESERVOIR AT MIDDLETOWN SOON FINISHED Frederick county authorities are engaged in a bitter court battle in Chicago over their efforts to return notorious Claude Countee. Federick negro, to this city for trial on Jail- breaking, 'robbery and parole-viola- tion charges, it was learned Tuesday eight In a telegram to Police Head- here from Cfalef of Police Hen S. Bartgls. Chief Bartgis, State's Attorney Eherman P. Bowers. Sheriff Roy M. Eiltner and Special Deputy Sheriff Verner Redmocd left here last veek for Chicago, where Countee arrested and held pending ex- tradition. Papers for tfco negro's ex- tradition to Frederick were signed.by Governors Nice of Maryland and Homer of Illinois and the officers had hoped to start home Monday follow- ing a "fugitive hearing'' in Chicago. Apparently Countee has been re- torting to every possible legal loop- bole in an effort to escape the return .trip and an almost certain peniten- tiary sentence. Chief Bartgis wired that the negro was "fighting to the last ditch" but added that it was toped "to bring him in soon." It evident that the return of the local officers would be delayed until late in the week at least. Four Hearings Held. Instead of a single hearing. Chief Bartgis said that Countee had already had four bearings and intimated that the end had not yet come. He also said that the negro had been rep- resent by four lawyers, indicating come financial means on the pan of Countee. It was believed that the negro was attempting to gain his free- dom in different Chicago courts on the habeas corpus plea, for which local authorities had been prepared. The telegram requested that the Frederick county court and the fami- lies of the local officers be notified of the turn of events. Countee was believed the ringlead- er in a jail-break here December, 1930, which resulted in the escape of three prisoners. Two were quickly re- captured but Countee remained at large until he was arrested in Chi- cago. Affidavits which the officers took with them to Chicago told cf the jail-break, while other papers related to Counter's indictment for breaking and entering the B. Rosen- cur store and violating his parole from a 10-year term for burglary. Favotf Immediate TrfoL Before be left for Chicago, State's Attorney Bowers indicated that be ttvored a trial in Circuit Court as coon after Ccuntee's return as pos- sible. There is a possibility that if the negro is returned, he win be tried during the present term and it is con- sidered extremely unlikely that au- thorities will await the next grand jury session before hearing the case, since indictments have been return- ed. The next grand jury tsnn is in September. One Of Matters Discussed At Organization Of Bur- gess And Commissioners. Town officers and committees were appointed and relief work WM dis- cussed at the organisation meeting of the burgess and commissioners of Middletown, held Monday evening at Memorial HalL E. Walter Beachley, beginning his fifth term AS burgess, presided at the meeting. He was sworn in at the clerk's office here last week. Walter L. Remsberg was elected secretary and registrar of the town and Leslie N. Coblentz was again chosen attorney. L. Osmond Derr was elected assistant burgess. Fred M. Hoffman and Dr. Frank C. Ryan were named members of the street committee and Edgar H. Koog> and Aube A, Reed were elected members of the Water committee. The reservoir being constructed near the town was discussed. It is anti- cipated that it will be completed in abcmt a month. The reservoir is be- ing constructed through FHRA funds and between 35 and 40 persons are employed regularly, about half of this number being from Middletown sec- tion. It is expected that when the reser- voir is completed, it will be connected with the old reservoir, which Js now supplying water to the town. In this way, there win always be an adequate supply, it is felt, particularly in case of fire. In the past, it nas been in- dicated that town officials do not feel there was sufficient water for protec- tion against an unusually large con- flagration. There will also be ade- quate water to service the household needs of the town Other routine business was dis- cussed. AH of the newly-elected and hold-orer commissioners were present at the meeting.

He spoke on the "Grace of taking as his text, 1 Thess, 4th chapter and llth verse, "Study to be or as the levised version puts it, "Be Ambitious to be Quiet." Present Noisy Age. Dr. Leinbach said in part: "This sounds like a choice bit of irony in a noisy and strenuous age. What a queer ambition to set before twentieth century Americans, who clamor for recognition, yearn to hold the center of the stage and love to stand in the limelight. Why, the world has always seemed so ready to tang the biggest medal around the neck of tbe man. who succeeded in making the biggest noise. Through centuries tragic harvests and discord end devastation have been reaped in war because the restless ambition of men have bred envy, greed and hate. And yet in a world where so many are fighting against frightful odds and going to their daily tasks sick at heart because the way is so hard and the burdens are so heavy the followers of the meek and lowly Christ should strive to live quietly and peaceably in all Godliness and honesty. 'An old heathen philosopher once declared that fact that man has two ears and only one mouth should teach htm it is more Important to hear than to speak. Scripture and the experience of history agree that two marks of real greatness are a quick ear and a cautious tongue. 'Be swift to hear and slow to speak' wrote St. James. "Faith cometb through said St. Paul. 'He that hath Ears to Hear Let Him Hear.' How often Jesus said that Now our Lord knew that those to whom he .poke had ears and that but few were deaf but he also knew that but lew people knew how to use their ears. "Only those -who are quick to hear are likely to be slow to speak. Ready talkers ore usually poor listen- ers. Christians should study to be quiet bacause God knows so much rcore than we do. Men are so often compelled to eat their own words. Be slow to speak because you are re- sponsible for your wards and cannot call then back.
