This is td_eqmprise a special film service riot-dbtainable except in our large cities-, ''and* will consist of the highest- class films the world of picture making has to offer. Films are not like whiskey, you know,'feme good, some not so goad, but as whis- key, all good. %fo, '£lms are different. The good ones are good and the poor ones are poor. The' poor ones you wouldn't.swallow. The good ones cost money, and so does the service. To the credit of Mr. Wolfe it should be said, that even when he was the sole pic- ture exhibitor in the place, he never showed a real poor picture... The new Bijou will be a shapely structure when completed, and an im- provement t o the site and vicinity. It replaces one - of the oldest buildings in town, and will add much to adjoin- ing property, which as- the toWn grows will no doubt yield to the demands of business. - Tire building is construct- ed on a foundation of concrete, sloped backward to give the necessary pitch to the floor. This will make very strong flooring, as the joists lie direct- ly on the wall. The screen located at the further end will be of the most approved of the later kinds used for the purpose. It will be handsome- ly framed to make it agreeable to the. eye when the pictures are not on the screen. The floor will have a suffi- cient incline to permit an uninter- rupted view- from every seat. The ^interior walls and ceiling will be ar- tistically decorated in such tones of color as prevail in the best houses. There will be a spacious' lobby for the ticket office, where also photos of all the leading moving picture\ stars will be on exhibition. The\ illumination here Will be very brilliant, presenting an array of light and rich coloring, which in harmony and artistic-.merit will be unsurpassed. Above the lobby a large front has been constructed, which can be used for various decorations and also a mammoth sign. The exterior has clean and simple lines; the roof slopes on either side to a neat cor- nice, lending a classic touch to the entire, building. The general type of architecture represented is of the Gre- cian, the outline of the walls and elevation of the roof following the. plans df the old temple of Minerva at Athens, though minus the colon- ades. The roof will be covered with tin and the side walls with sheet steel, painted in appropriate shades.. There is no better indication that THAWWILL. AID CLARK.

The flower of our village at- tended. Many young married couples who were already good dancers, but wished to acquire the most recent steps, were out in a body. When the representative of the Democrat reached the hall, at a rath- er late hour, many were already adept and were treading the one-step as naturally as a man treads water. A short after dance was held at the con- clusion of the lessons. Miss Sweeney announced that owing to the Thanks- giving holiday this' week ' that she would not be nere on Wednesday, but would surely be here on the Wednes- day following. She Was accompanied on the occasion by her father and brother from TJtica, Svho occupied seats on the stage to review the les- sons. Italian laborer Drowned. An Italian laborer employed by the Watertown Electric Light and Power Company at Taylorville, near Belfort, was accidentally drowned Sunday af- ternoon. He had walked up the river bank to pass away the time and in some manner, while crossing the dam, made a mis-step and Ml into the river. At the point where the acci- dent occurred there is a double eddy which makes it difficult work search- ing for the body. Searching parties are still at work but as yet without results. CLUB BOH ALLEYS Remodeled, Scraped and Polished, Making Them the Best in Northern New York. The bowling alleys of the Lowville Club have been undergoing a course of reconstruction and general repair- ing. The committee having the work in charge, Niles C. Bateman, chair- man, Leroy W. Arthur and Harvey P. Parrington, have had the work com- pleted in a manner that will place the Lowville alleys on a par with any in Northern New York. The alleys will be open to club members today from 7:30 to 10:30 p. m. The bowling season opens very au- spiciously this year, as a number of matches have already been arranged between club teams and some of the best out of town teams. Also a series of matches between club members, the first of which will be one between the married men and single men. The alleys have long been a feature of the Lowville Club and the sport has been freely participated in by the members, many of whom have be- come expert bowlers with records to their credit. Mr. Wolfe proposes to make Lowville his permanent home, than the amount of mbney he is inyesting in this enter- prise. He is a quiet, unassuming young man, little given to bluster or self laudation. He Is a violinist of great skill and his services are fre- quently i n demand at dances and so- cial functions. He is popular with all classes here, having been so from the start. He was engaged with oth- ers of the committee with which he was connected,, in promoting the suc- cess of the carnival held during fair time, and when the Boosters were organized to perpetuate the work of publicity given our village, by the car- nival, he became one of the first mem- bers. He also beldngs to the Low-vil- aah-gah, being adopted into the tribe under the Indian name of \Gray Pox.\ Taken all in all, Ernest is a fellow to cotton to, and it is hoped by his many friends in this village that his venture will meet with the success of which it is worthy. Not only Mr. Wolfe, but the entire community is to be congratulated that it Will have one of the finest houses of entertainment in the state of New York, devoted ex- clusively to moving pictures. ML FOR MURDER TRIAL ffelNG HELD AT CANTON, ST.'iJLAWREN.Ce - COUNTY. WHITE HOUSE WEDDING. Eugene 'Brannigan Shot Down By Clark 'Not Far From Kalurah, July 25th After An Argument in Clark's Cabin—Murderer Was Intoxicated. An extraordinary term of the su- preme court convened at Canton,, o.n Monday, with Judge Borst on the bench, to determine the fate of Henry Washington Clark of Kalurah, indict- ed for murder in the first degree, for the alleged killing of Eugene Branni- gan of Harrisville. Clark is 55 years old and for many years lived in a litv tie cabin at Kalurah, In the Bonaparte lake district, about four miles from Harrisville. Kalurah is a small sta- tion on the Cartilage and Adirondack railroad. About IS years .ago Clark lost his wife, and his four small children were taken to th«- homes of friends and relatives. Since that time^.Clark haxi lived alone at hi? pabin, d#otthg his time to-fnintirig, fMiijur arfjf Work- ing at .various .tjiings 'thai presented •.themselves* up--in', that new ^oinittiy, for maintenance. , At the tirife of the trageiy,r Clark-was -employed by the N-ev§|Jfrork; Central' &s . r -pa^r\plman and fife-warden.. It haif \been..life-habit and •qusto'm to -.have a woman named AmiavKeHy., _a, 1; neigh:B.of>-*'6rhe to'the 'house' from time't'o'time, to wash and do cooking for him. Eugene Brannigan was a man of 42 years of age,\ at the time .of his death, and had ,p, wife and two young sons, Clark and William. He was employed as foreman fori James Humes, a lum- ber operator, on the pulp drive. On Saturday, July 26, last, Clark went to Harrisville to buy supplies and while there met Brannigan, and they had a few drinks together, after which Clark returned to Kalurah. It is alleged that having drank too much he went to bed, and shortly .before noon he was aroused by tlie entrance of Brannigan and ttie Kelly, woman. It is said that Brannigan went to see Clark in regard to working for him in the woods. An argument ensued in which Clark claims Brannigan struck him and threw him in the corner, cut- ting his head and injuring his hand. .It is.also claimed .that^Qlark„tqo.k a shotgun from' the \wall at this juncture but the Kelly woman got it away from him. Brannigan then left the house to go to his auto, which he had left a con- siderable distance from the house, where the road leading to the cabin begins. Clark followed and shot Bran- nigan through the head. Several per- sons heard the'shooting, some saying three shots were fired, others that but one was fired. Clark then returned to his cabin, at which place he was arrpsted, and taken to Canton jail on the Sunday following. Miss Jessie Wilson lylarricd to Francis Bowes Sayre, •Washington, Nov. 25.—A brief cere- mony followed by a simple prayer made Jessie Wilson the bride of Fran- cis B6w.es Sayre this afternoon in the East R'oom 'of the White House. The occasion was distinguished by the brilliance of a social event of in- ternational interest and at the same time by the sentiment and simplicity wh^ph attend the average home Wed- ding. The presence of cabinet members and diplomats in the epauletted and gold braided uniforms of court attire did not prevent adoring old aunts and elderly cousins of the young couple from shedding tears of happiness as the officiating minister spoke the words of the marriage ceremony. Al- though the grandeur of the East Room- with its vast proportions, great windows and huge chandeliers of .crystal was suggestive of state oc- casions, the decorations were as far from elaborate as though they had been intended to ornament the front parlor of the most unassuming home. Promptly at 4:30 -the opening strains of the .wedding march from -Lohengrin sounded from the Marine Band orchestra, stationed in the en- trance hall of the White House, and the fourteen military aides in brilliant uniform tooji: their\' stand at intervals' 'along* the atsle, wjhich led from the corridor to- the .east window., •• ', ^-bugler-announced the, entrance of; tlW^ride,- who leaned upon the arm $\f'..fijgr father,.. As'they crossed the tlweliiold- the\triumphant strains of \Hair to the Chief\ burst forth. \While- the cere.mony was being per- formed 'the Marine Band orchestra played softly. The number given by them had been selected by Miss Mar- garet Wilson, who. had the arrange- ment of the musical program in charge. ( At the conclusion of the nuptial blessing the bridal party passed from the East Room through the Green Room and into the Blue Room, where the bride and groom received the con- gratulations of the guests. Mr. and Mrs. Sayre will probably spend a part p.f their honeymoon in Europe. DECISION HERED HER LAND CASE PROPERTY LOCATED SOUTH OF BEAVER RIVER. Michael B. Bush. At 6:30 Sunday evening at his home about three miles beyond Kirchner- ville, occurred the sudden death of Michael B. Bush. For the past few weeks he had not been\ as well as usual, but was able to assist in the work on his farm. At the time of his death he was sitting in a chair visit- ing with his family. Mr. Bush was born in Germany and came to this country when four years of age. Had lie lived until the 3rc of'December he would have been 67 years old. He had resided on the farm where he* died for 42 years and was a man well, thought of b his neighbors -wild 1 knew him to be strictly honest unde; him, his Widow, three sons, William G., Nicholas H. and Bernard G. Bush, and one daughter, Mrs. Delia Turck, all of Kirchnerville. The funeral was held from St. Stephen's church, Cro- ghan, Wednesday morning, when a re- quiem high mass was celebrated. In- terment was made at Croghan. Mackey—Hughes. Thomas D. Mackey of Constable- ville and Miss Ella Plughes of the same place were united in marriage in St. Mary's church, Constableville, at 11:30 o'clock Tuesday morning by Rev. Father Creedon of Mohawk Hill. M. J. Hughes and Miss Carrie Hughes, bi other and sister of the bi\de at- tended the couple. The bride wore a dark blue tailored traveling suit with hat to match, and her maid wore grey charmeuse. The wedding was a quiet one, and was attended by only the immediate members of both families. The groom is a well known young man, and the bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Hughes. The couple has many'friends who wish all kinds of good luck for the future. Fol- lowing the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Mackey left for a trip to Buffalo and Niagara Falls. They will reside near Constableville. Releases 100 Convicts from Prison. Columbia, S. C, Nov. 25.—One hun- dred convicts were released today by Gov. Cole L. Blease. The number in- cludes 26 convicted of murder and 26 convicted of manslaughter. One man received a full pardon, another a sen- tence was commuted, and the others were paroled during good behavior. The governor since coming into office three years ago, has granted nearly 900 pardons, paroles and com- mutations. Retains Conventions, Yet Gives Party Voters the Right to Nominate All State Officers. Albany, Nov. 26.—Senator George A. Blauvelt, JatjhjT, o£,_the, direct pri- mary\ bill \passed \(it the last session of the legislature and probable succes- sor to Robert F. Wagner as floor lead- er, has issued a statement for the pur- pose of sounding out public sentiment on a new tentative direct primary bill of his own making. His plan does not provide for the abolition of the state convention. \I -am considering the preparation of a direct primary bill, which while retaining the state convention, will take away from it the power of nom- inating candidates for state offices,\ he said. \Candidates for all offices, state and local, will be nominated at official primaries. Primary candidates may be designated either by petition of a small per cent of the enrolled par- ty vote within a political subdivision, or at convention made up of delegates elected subject to party rules and at party expense, by the enrolled party voters at unofficial primaries. The state convention may thus select the organization primary candidates and continue to formulate the party'plat- form. ' ,j. \Party committees will provide par- ty rules and regulatio: organization emblem primajflBllot if setts ted and the all conditions. He leaves to 'su^ii^, party emblem on the primary ballot will be prohibited. A party organiza- tion shall have a primary ' emblem which may be the same for any one party throughout the state. Party committees will be elected, subject to party rules, at unofficial and not at official primaries. \The party on the one hand would thus have the benefit of the delibera- tions and sound advice of its leaders assembled in party conventions, and at the same time the enrolled party voters would have an opportunity of free expression and the ultimate se- lection of party candidates at the pri- maries.\ Mrs. Smith's Dancing Class. Mrs. H. C. Smith, of Gouverneur, who has been here on two previous occasions organizing classes in dan- cing, was in town Monday night to continue her instruction in modern dancing. Mrs. Smith has a represen- tative class, some of our most digni- fied people being enrolled as pupils. Mrs. Smith has made dancing her life work, having been engaged in teach- ing the art for more than 20 years. She is an experfin all that pertains to dancing and deportment, and has met with continued success in her long career as an instructress. Our citizens will have an opportunity of acquiring the latest touches in those dances which hol'd the people, nation- wide in their enticing grip. Her rep- ertoire includes the best features of them all. Our older as well as the younger, will do well to take instruc- tion and keep in the swim with the rest. \Laugh and the world laughs with you; weep and you weep'alone,' you know. Only live fish swim- upstream, live merchants advertise. Only Court of Appeals Holds That Leroy Crawford Has No Right to Inter- vene—Damages Claimed Aggregat- ing $1,506,218. The court of appeals has handed down a decision upholding Attorney General Carmody's decision 'n an im- portant Adirondack land ; case, involv- ing claims against the state aggregat- ing about $1,500,000. The decision concerns the alleged purchase by the state in. 1909 of between 20,000 and 30,000 acres of land in Herkimer county. The action grew out of the State Forest Purchasing Board in voting to take over for the state, lands owned by Mary L. Fisher of Cincinnati. This property is located south of Beaver river and adjoining it is 11,200 acres formerly owned by th<. Taggart Paper Company. The latter plot of land also was attempted to be> appropriated by the state through the Land Purchasing Board. The board claimed that the two tracts in question were desired to preserve the timber upon them and to prevent ii from being, cut to the detriment of the forest or the interests of the state. The question of taking over this land was raised later and has been in litigation ever since. As a result Mary L. Fisher filed a claim for $940;4^d : damages and the Taggart Paper .Company. put in a claim for ?475,850. A third claim was filed' by Leroy Crawford for $89,928. The Fisher and Taggart claims were for lands alleged to h'ave.*been ap- propriated while the Crawford claim was for alleged damages resulting from such appropriation by.the state. Crawford contended that fie had a contract with the St. Regis Paper Company to cut timber .from the lands in question and that the action of the state nullifteii his »'contract. These various claittls are pending before the board of claims.- The state began an action against Mary L. Fisher for the- purpose of der termining the title to the lands, it be- ing contended on behalf of the state that there was a question as to whether it had ever legally acquired the title to the property involved.. The action was begun before Supreme Court J.us-, tice Devendorf at Herkimer. Later Crawford sought to intervene, claim- ing he was an interested party. At- torney General Carmody contested this contention,'but Justice Deven- dorf decided in favor of Crawford. The appellate division, fourth depart- ment, affirmed Justice Devendorf's decision and Mr. Carmody carried the case to the court of appeals. • In an opinion by Judge Miller, the court of appeals reverseo the decision of the lower .courts and upheld Mr. Carmody, claiming Crawford?- was without authority to intervene. Jus- tice Miller says: \He (Crawford) does not wish to intervene to contest any claim of the state to title, but asserts, in effect, that the action is not being properly prosecuted by the state and t that his purpose, if allowed to intervene, is to establish the state's t'tle. \We know of no provision of law authorizing a person to be substituted for the plaintiff on the theory .that the latter is not properly safeguard- ing his own rights. The respondent has and claims no interest whatever in the subject, the title to the real perty in question. \He asserts an riterest in the question to be decided the action. The courts sometimes 'ear counsel as amicus curiae if their clients are not interested in the sub- ject of the action, but it would lead to intolerable abuses if persons inter- ested only in the question to be decid- ed were allowed to intervene with the conduct of the cause. The respond- ent evidently supposes that the judg- ment to be renderea :a this action may affect the board of claims, but his rights, whatever they may be ; cannot be prejudiced by judgment not binding upon him.\ After Crawford had sought to inter- vene an effort was made in- certain quarters to make it appear that the state had confessed judgment, but it was shown that the state had never paid a cent for the land in question and had never had any money appro- priated for the purpose of making such payment; that it never agreed upon a price for the land and that the state comptroller had steadfastly re- fused to recognize the validity of the appropriation proceedings and had refused to place the land upon the |ax list as owned by the state. False charges attacking the meth- ods pursued in the prosecution of the action also were circulated. These allegations it lated developed were inspired by persons who apparently were seeking to deter Mr. Carmody from seeing that the state was prop- erly protected and its interests ade- quately safeguarded. The case now reverts to Justice De- vendorf and practically involves one question, and that is, the determina- tion Concerning the title to the prop- erty. It would appear from the facts presented to the court on the part of the state that the Forest Purchasing Board had no authority t o appropriate the lands and that therefore they are still held by the Fisher estate. Since the action was instituted Mary L. Fisher has died and her executors had been substituted. Be Held at Constableville and Beaver Falls.

But it faces it quietly. Aside • from numerous meetings of workmen and orderly crowds in the stree^fcand about the bulletin boards, in frdbt of the various labor union meeting Itails> there was no excitement resulting- from today's walk-out of nearly allthe force of the largest manufacturing plant of its kind in the world. Throughout the city there\ was an atmosphere of preparation. In a doa- en or more labor headquarters tllgr-ei „ were meetings and preparations b,e#:'' gun for wh'af many fear Will be a long< ' struggle. ' -• '-•'• Declare There Is No Strike Yet. In a central hall heads of the va- rious unions met and discussed ways and means of carrying on a strike, should one be called. Meanwhile the leaders were emphatic in their state- ments that -there is no strike yet They explained today's walk-out as a \demonstration of strength to show ' that the General Electric Company cannot crush unionism.\ The union workmen are not looking for shorter hours or more pay, they point out, but to correct what they claim to be an unjust discrimination against two of their companions, Jr. L. Dujay and Miss Mabel Leslie, both of whom have been active in union circles. . The two were laid off recehtly, the company claiming, their removal was a part of policy of retrenchment. The union workers, however, assert the- laying off of the two was due to past activities in labor union circles. They also claim the receipts for the current month exceeded by more than $l,000v- 000 the receipts for November, 1912. Company Denies Any Discrimination-. George E, Emmons, general mana- ger of all the company'S'*plants, in a formal statement denied any discrim- ination w*s intended. This Was the only- sfa1;ement--t : hat emanate*' from.' the company's office. However, those close to the officials; said preparations were being made to*, cope with any emergency that might arise. In this connection they stated that the company had countermanded^ all large incoming orders. The presence of W. C. Fish, mana- ger of the company's plant at Lynn, - Mass., caused considerable comment among the employees. They said he was antagonistic to union labor in Lynn and that he had come t o Schen- ectady to assist in the crushing out of unionism in this city. Officials of the company stated that he was pres- ent merely in his official capacity to attend a meeting of the company's manufacturing committee. Among the citizens of Schenectady- the lay-off and the prospect of a pos- sibly long strike is not welcome^ as with its weekly payroll of- mor i than $250,000 the plant provides the prin- cipal income of the city. v' '-*\ *** JMS K. M GUIRE INDICTED Former Mayor of Syracuse Charged With Soliciting Campaign Contri- butions from Contractors. New York, Nov. 26.—James K. Mc- Guire, contractor, and former mayor of Syracuse, has been indicted by the granfl jury investigating the \sand- bagging\ of state contractors. The indictment charges McGuire with vio- lating specification number 44 of the corporation act, which forbids the so- liciting of campaign contributions from any corporation engaged in state work. 'Judge Crane, of Part I, general ses- sions, immediately issued a bench warrant for McGuire, who is under- stood to be on his way to South Amer- ica, ostensibly to examine some as- phalt properties there. The founda- tion for McGuire's indictment was laid by his brother, George H. -Mc- Guire, last week. The testimony which clinched that unwittingly given by his brother, came today from Fillmore Cohdit, agent rbr the Union Oil Company, of California. Cohdit testified that Mc- Guire told him that by contributing $5,000 to the campaign his company could be assured of contracts to fur- nish oil to the state. In addition to th f s he said he was to pay McGuire one cent a gallon on all the oil thus sold, the selling price to he made high enough to cover this assessment. Surrogate's Court.
