The Fulton Chain Murderer. . A special adjourned term of the su­ preme court convened at the court house in Herkimer to-day, with Justice Maurice L. Wright presiding, for the purpose of drawing an extra panel of 150 jurors to serve a t the trial of Hor­ ace Norton, the alleged murderer of Helen Widrig, which will begin in that village on February 15. The trial of Norton promises to be one of the most hard fought murder cases ever tried in that county. The crime is one of the most atrocious ever perpetrated in this section. The story of Norton’s alleged crime is familiar to the readers of The Leader. Norton, it is alleged, struck down his common law wife, Helen Widrig,^with an ax at Lock and Dam, about one mile south of Fulton. Chain, then made his escape in the woods. Norton was captured after a hard struggle by Deputy Sheriff Frank E. Munson of Herkimer, assisted by W. W. Nicholson of Turin. The court has assigned Hon. A. B. Steele and C. D. Thomas of Herkimer to defend Norton. District Attorney A. J. Smith will he for the prosecution. Trl-County Insurance Company.

Anniyersary o f His Admission to the Bar Happily Celebrated. Some persons believe that the mil- lenium will not arrive until some few ’thousand years after the present gen­ eration has gqne the way of its prede­ cessors, hut there are a few spots on this troubled globe w>here life is sim­ ply one allming song, and the cause of all the joy is centered in a rising young attorney. The occupants of the offices in the Masonic building are possessed-of dispositions of a most happy character. Their incllnatlohs. are like David Hamm’s, to “do unto othera as they would have others do unto them,” with a mental reservation, to “ do them fust,” if it is necessary for .the peace of the building. The first anniversary’of the admis- sldn of Jeremiah Wood to the bar oc­ curred yesterday, and to propeidy oh-, serve the event, a banquet was planned by Misses Margaret Casey, Genevieve Chevalier and Mrs. Mertie Ellis, who are connected With the office of the Gloversville electric company and the law offices of Counselors Jerome Egel- ston and William A. McDonald. The first intimation that Mr. Wood had of, the event was when he was escorted to the county court room in the Masonic building and saw a daintily adorned table, with a happy crowd seated about ’it and waiting to do him honor. The jFoung counselor was given a seat at the head of the table, with the three young ladies who originated the affair seated In close proximity. The mem­ bers of the pa-rty were District Attor­ ney Mills, ex-Recorder William A. Mc­ Donald.and Mrs. McDonald, Counselor Jerome Egelston, Mr. S. Elmore Bur­ ton, Superintendent John Begley, Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Judson, Counselor John W. Burr, Henry C. McLean, Miss Casey, Mrs. Ellis, Miss Chevalier, and representatives of the press. Before the conclusion of the substan­ tial part of the banquet, Counselor Egelston, who had been designated as toastmaster, made a short speech In­ forming Mr. Wood o f the reason h e had been so highly honored, and inciden­ tally warning him of the consequence of plural marriages if he ever expecte'd to go to congress. After continuing in a pleasant strain for a few moments, he introduced District Attorney Mills, who responded to the toast, \Our Jer­ ry.” The remarks of Mr. Mills kept the members of the banqueting party in a constant uproar, and his allusions to the three young ladies as “Faith, Hope and Charity,” with ironical comments on their employers, was a most enjoy­ able intellectual treat. Mr. McDonald responded to the toast, “Her Jerry,” in the style which has made him well and favorably known as a humorous after dinner speaker, and his remarks gave much pleasure to all present, with the exception of the honored guest. Mr. Wood was requested to respond to the toast, “The Three Graces,” Margaret, Genevieve and Mertie, and he strength­ ened his hold o n the affections of his friends by the diplomatic manner in which he complimented and thanked everybody, and skillfully left the mat­ ter of his preference as deep a mystery as i t was before he commenced to spe^k. The affair was of unusual pleas­ ure for everybody who 'was so fortun­ ate as to receive an invitation, and future anniversaries are looked for­ ward to with pleasant anticipation. A Handsome Testimonial. Miss May Hoag has resigned h er po­ sition as forelady in the light work de­ partment of the firm of Daniel Hays & Co. She was presented with a very beautiful Princess banquet lamp as a token of the esteem In tvuich her asso­ ciates. held her, Charles Tledeman making a very appropriate presentation speech. 'Miss Rose Baumgaertel will have charge of th a t department. Will Move to Set Aside. Some time ago Sheriff Martin L.Get- man closed the furniture store of F. W. Shaffer and attached the goods on an execution amounting to about 53.000, held by the Fulton county bank, and since that time the store on North Main street has been closed. The goods will not be sold rwithout an effort to prevent such a proceeding on the part of the defendant, as the case will come up be- fore Judge^Stover within a ‘few days and a motion will be argued by N. H. Anibal, as attorney for Mr. Shaffer, to set aside the attachment. W PARK w ater system , Cdntpaet A-warded to Clinton Beek-1 with of Herkimer. The contract for building the new water works system a t Sacandaga Park has been awarded to Clinton Beckwith of Herkimer, who was' the lowest bidder, and he will commence work as soon' as possible. The water for the reservoir will be taken from the Warner creek, which ^s located about two and one-half miles from Sacandaga park and empties into the vlaie. According to measurements,the average flow per day of the springs which are the source of the stream is about 70,000 gallons daily, even in the driest season of the year, and this sup­ ply will he fully ample for the needs of the park and its summer Inhabitants. In addition to furnishing plenty of spring water for summer use, the new system will provide for protection of the buildings at the park in the ■winter, as the pipes will be laid below the frost line and the pressure will be made to throw a stream to any height which may be desired. The railroad company anticipates no trouble in the construc­ tion of its system of water works, as ali the persons who reside along the Warner creek have given releases and the damage suits which have troubled this city for the past few years will noj; be a feature of the construction of the Sacandaga water works system. A Great Success. An 'audience of nearly seven hundred persons was present at the entertain­ ment given in Mills hall last evening by Fred Peck of Saratoga, a humorist with a wide reputation, for the benefit of Lone Star lodge. No. 39, I. 0. 0. F. Mr. Peck gave selections off a varied character in a style wihieh greatly pleased those present and the applause was hearty and frequent. Good skating on Becker’s rink. .
