Connersville Times (Newspaper) - February 9, 1910, Connersville, Indiana Yol 73 no. 478connersviile Indiana wed it essay. February 9, 1910 s 1.00 in Advance round not culy mayor Finly h. Gray this . M Kee cites error in punctuation in statute bearing on cases a common Cork used in bottle Roy and prepared compound. Tuesday s evening news. The Case of the state is. Samuel Mckennan charged with having sold a Quantity of tincture of iodine which lacked certain ingredients which the pure food and drug Law specifies it shall contain was tried before mayor Finly h. Gray this afternoon. At the close of the trial after a Brief talk on the merits of the Case or. Gray found the defendant not guilty. Prosecutor Frank m. Edwards represented the state in the proceeding and messes. Cohn and Miller Indianapolis chemists were present As prosecuting witnesses. Cohn is the Man who filed the charge and Miller made the analysis of the drug after it had been taken to Indianapolis. It appears that it was corked with an Ordinary Cork stopper and it was argued that after having remained in the bottle for a considerable time a portion at feast of the ingredients found lacking might have escaped by evaporation. It was not upon this ground however that d. W. Mckogg who with r. N. Elliott represented the defense made his main plea. It was shown by evidence that s. O. A Mckennan did not sell the drug that he and his son Roy Are partners in business that Roy Mckennan compounded the tincture and that it was compounded from substances All of which were received by the firm from reputable drug houses bearing their Assurance of purity. This accumulation of testimony left the state with Little footing but to make matters certain or. Mckee pointed out a surprising error in the language of that passage of the pure food Law upon which the proceeding was based. The unintended meaning of the Law is due to faulty punctuation and was not intended As a serious Issue in the c. Co brother As to disposal of bodies of self and wife.

Apparently it was Witten at the Union station about 6 o clock yesterday morning and Only shortly before he went to his wife s Home. While the letter did not state directly that Cope intended murder and suicide the writer asked j. E. Cope to see that his wife s body was buried by the Side of his own in Olney their former Home. The writer also asked the brother to look after and educate their five year old son Ameth. He wrote that he and his wife could not live together and that he could not stand a permanent separation.

Murray in excellent paper at state tax Board an instance Wiere he largely increased assessment says it More facts should be Given tie press regarding tax Dodo Jersy publicity helps. County assessor w. T. Murray read an excellent paper at the annual conference of state tax commissioners and county assessors which a Given prominence in the printed report. A few extracts therefrom Are Here reproduced in summing up the aggregate amounts of what Hie county assessors have added to the tax duplicates of the state let us not arrive at the conclusion that this is All they have done for in All Candor i do not believe it represents one half of the amount of their financial value to the state of Indiana. I will give a sea l illustration there was a certain party in one of my townships i suspected was not giving in the property he of Ned. I at once got into communication with persons in other counties and found my suspicions were Well grounded. I then notified the assessor that when he went to assess this party i wanted to go with him. So i did. The result was that after the list we is completed it took very few words for me to increase Tiit list More than seven thousand dollars for i had the proofs with to a it the great mass of the people fairly understood what the county assessor is doing their would be much More liberality toward him. The persons who Are made to disgorge and list their property kno Gay very Well what the office is doing but the honest Lister who never comes in Contact with the office knows but Little about what is being done As the work is of such a nature that it cannot be heralded through the newspapers. And right Here i want to say i believe if we were not so close mouthed and would be very much More Liberal with the newspapers than we Are it would be a great help to us. And i for one shall advocate a More Liberal publication of the work in our office. The Man who defaults or commits some Petty crime receives a Liberal allowance of space in the columns of the newspapers and nobody should object to it but Why should a Man who commits perjury to defraud the Revenue of the state and county be secretly allowed to Settle and no one but the officers connected with the matter know of his a Coal Chad fun with itself at Rex factory.

Still rolling along the trucks Clear off the rails but running Over the ties it struck a pole supporting electric Light wires and demolished that. The car itself was somewhat broken by Contact with the pole but the total damage Vas Small. A tala by Cincinnati symphony coming 4lere in May.
