The last week of the Westfield campaign especially was day afternoon Appearances: Gibbs & William- son, Esqrs., Attorneys for Plaintiff; Henry C. Williamson, Esq., of Coun- sel. Ottaway & Munson, Esqrs., At- torneya for Defendant; Gesrge A. Newbury, Esq., of Counsel. Mr. Starkweather suffered a stroke a abort time ago, but was able to be around, although not in good health. He got up Saturday as usual, and after his breakfast c.n c of great victory. Large crowds attended each service. Some of thc peopel drove in from miles around. There wore at least 900 people in at- tendance upon the service Sunday eve- ning. There was a spirit of enthusi- asm throughout this closing service. MEMORANDUM went out. as was his custom, and that was tfce last time bis family saw him alive. StmJ days he would be gone all day. so tdthing wgs thought of his ab- fence, until be failed to return at night. Then his relatives and neighbors started out to hunt for him, but could find no trace of him until Monday afternoon when his lifeless body wat found washed up on Bourne's beach. How he met his death wilt never be known, but it is thought he may have had another stroke while walking along the bank of the lake and fallen In. Pierce J« The above entitled action was triad at a term of the Supreme Court, with- out jury, held in and for the County of Chautauqua. The relief asked la a .judgment restricting the defendant from going upon, digging up or in any way iterfering with the plaint- iff's possesions and use of premises described in the complaint. The de- fendant 'appears and iterposes the defense that the premises thus des- cribed are, and for many years have -been one of the public highways in Town of Westfield in said County of Chautauqua. Slmlliar action has been brought „ by the plaintiff against various re- sidents of the Town of Westfield, owhlng property adjoining this strip of landj, asking for Judgment rev straining them from using said lands as a highway. One of said action against George Alford has been tried, and,resulted in a judgment in favor of the defendant, declaring tre strip of land to be a public highway, and dismissing the <*>mplaint land dissolving the temporary injunction theretofore granted.\ The testimony In that action was substantially, if not literally, the testimony in this action, and I see no reason for a contrary or different result in this action. v The undisputed evidence is that prior to 1840 the town authorities undertook to establish and lay out the highway, which included with- in its bounds som£ or all of the lands described in the plaintiff's complaint Such an order was filed and recorded in the Town Clerk's office, oamins the street or highway as Erie street. About this time a map was prepared and filed in the County Clerk's of- fice of Chautauqua County,*which plotted and named this strip of land Erie Street. For many years, plain- tiff's predecessor in title maintained a fence on or substantially at the boundary of this street. The land adjoining this strip or street was plotted and some houses were built upon the land facing this street, access to which was reached over this and other streets in the Village of Barcelona. This strip of land to some extent was worked and used as a street or highway. Deeds were made, delivered and recorded in the Clerk's office of said County, desc- ribing* this as a street. The records in the Town Clerk's Office, the maps and records in the County Clerk's Office would be constructive notice at least to the owners of land ad- joining this strip or street of the fact that it was claimed to be a street and that it was being used as such; and the undisputed evidence is that, with this knowledge, no objection was made by the plaintiff's prede- cessor in title or by the plaintiff for many years. Objection is made to the regularity of the statutory proceedings to con- fer jurisdiction, and whether these objections are well taken or not, I am of the opinion that the use of the street was so open, notorious and continued that a street by decicatton and use is establisred. Judgment dismissing the com- plaint. with ccwts, may be entered. —- — The song service, ably led by Mr. Albert Ketchum, was entered into most heartily by all present. Mr. Ketchum has sung his way into the hearts of Westfield people. Every one of his solos have had a message. Mr. A. W- McKee (the Prince <rf Whales) was a fine addition to the musical part of the services during the closing days. He drove from his home at Rutland, Vt., to be present at these services. Mr. McKe c is a tenor of great range and volume. His solos were effective and the trio formed by Evangelist Vora Bruch, Song Leader Ketchum, and Mr. McKee added greatly to these last great services.

Carlson, Mr. Rex Crandall of the Grape Belt National Bank and J. Robert Douglas for their untiring efforts and com- munity interests in bringing this public spirited enterprise to a reality. The reat loss of this Grand Theatre in our Community entertainment life was felt with much regret not only by our im- mediate village life but by the gurround- ing Rural Citizenship and adjoining towns Who were constantly coming to Westfleld for entertainment and business. Evc+yonc who know Carl feels a per- sonal loss. Perfection docs not lie in the realm of the human, hut everyone who knew him intimately was very fond of him. . Outstanding among his characteristics was his generosity which lie manifested. His friends loved him for this. Then, too, he was patriotic. iHIc wanted to enlist in the service of his country long before he did. His great regret w'as that lie never was able t<> b 0 with the boys on the other side. The quality that endeared him to many was his kindliness towards chil- dren. Some children came to the house after they had heard the sa(> news of his death to express their grief. This is one of the finest trib- utes that could be paid any one.
