The new division, Children's Court of Conciliation was created by the last legislature at Judge Lindsey's request, and two months ago he assumed the bench. It is designed to bring divorce- bound parents back into peaceful matrimony if possible, otherwise to protect their children.

At that session, July a, 1938, Washington began an election contest, the first step being to ask an injunction against removal ot the county records from the old courthouse at Washington. The election contest went into Hempstead circuit court and was heard by Circuit Judge Dexter Bush, sitting at Hope city hall, from August 18, to September 9, 1938—the judge on the latter date upholding Hope as the ported in the British science journal "Nature" by John R.

Contest Is Settled On May 8. 1939, the supreme court handed down a unanimous decision sustaining Hope as the county-seat; and about a month laler, June 12, denied Washington a rehearing—ending the litigation, and closing a chapter of local controversy that really started when the first locomotive whistle echoed over southwest Arkansas. For Washington owed its position to the pioneer day when settlers either came overland on the great stage routes to the Southwest, or traveled up Red river by steamboat. The stage route ran through Washington, and it gave a direct connection with watei transport at Fulton for both travelers and supplies on Red river. The coming of the railroad deslroyeci the stages and the ste.nmboiit.s- eventually moved the county-seat from Washington to Hope. 'For it was the railroad that built a town on the rolling prairie—and for many years Hope now has been the seat of population and commerce, as today it is the seat of law.

"This will be a court of friendliness even if the respondents won't be friends." The court has the power to enter divorce decrees in cases of default 01 where a domestic relations court would have similar authority. Cases that can't be settled in the Children's Court will be sent to other courts for regular hearing and disposal. But so far, 30 per cent of the cases have been recon- whoin enlisted in the War Between I the States and never carne back. i Soon after the War. Mount Horeb Lodge became defunct, the records were carried to Little Rock and placed in the state archives of Masonry—in the old Fifth Street Temple which was destroyed by fire several years ago, and many records were lost. However, in 1852, Mount Horeb Lodge reported the following officers: J- A. L. Purdom, W. M., Charels White, S. W.. R. t. Williams. J. W., H. J. Johnson, treasurer; S. Martin, secretary. In 1853, lhc Lodge was represented at the Gland Session by J. A. L. Pur- doni. In 1855, officers were J. A. L. Purdom. W. M.; James K. Young, S. W.; J. D. Trimble, J. W.; Henry P. Johnson, treasurer, W. H. Toler, secretary and R. C. Stuart, Tiler. Andrew S. Martin and Warren Mc- .Elroy were at this time initiated. In Domestic Accord In Easy Doses Here is a sample of how Judge Lindsey runs the court: A couple married eight or nine years, with two children five and eight years old were having trouble. The husband went to his lawyer about a divorce. The wife went to Judge Lindsey. At the court's call, husband and wife conferred with the judge for 40 minutes. At the end of that time. Judge Lind- sented by Charles B. Milchel, and in 1858 by J. M. Kilgore and C. B Milchel. Sessions of the Grand Lodge of Ar. kansas of 18G3 and 1864 were held in the Hall of Mount Horeb Lodge No. 4 of Washington.
