Fort Wayne Sentinel:—An assertion that my seem incredible to a great many people was made by a prominent gentleman whose home is in New York City, while addressing a citizen of Fort Wayne. He said: 1: Do you khow that your city has one of the richest men in the west?" "No, who is it?" asked the Fort Wayne gentleman. "It is Judge James Cheney," was the reply. "What is he worth?" . ' 'He is worth fully $H, 000,000. There is $10,000,000 in sight that I know of." "Fourteen million dollars! 1 ' repeated the millionaire's fellow townsman in great amazement. ' -I never dreamed that he was worth as much as that." "Nor did many others. Your financial king owns almost incalculable interests in New York city, Logansport. Ind., Defiance, Ohio, Fort Wayne, and other places. He is director of railroads, owns the Logansport bank, controls the Fort .Wayne artificial .gas company, and has great interest in New York city, besides extensive possessions elsewhere." The subject" of those remarks, Judge James Cheney, president and treasurer of the Fort Wayne Gas Light company, has his home in a comfortable, though unpretentious mansion on. Spy Run avenue. A man who, though approch- ing the goal of four score years, is still active, and bears the burden of declining years with much more vigor than many other men who are thirty years his junior. When he is in the city you can see him any week day bending over his desk at the gas office, and you do not see a gouty, dried up specimen of the human race, either. No, you are given respectful attention by a man of small Stature, with a short gray beard, whose'eyes still have the sgar- kle of youth in them. His trips to'and from his office are nearly always made on foot, as he declines at almost 'all times the convenience of a carriage. The judge shrinks from an ostentatious position in life, and does not like-to hear public allusion to himself. History does not show his name linked with other men of local prominence, in fact the 'several histories of the county and the Maumee valley fail to reveal his name. On public questions of political or business nature he is very conservative, so much so that it would take a very stratagetic interviewer to succeed in getting him to commit himself. The judge travels a great deal.of the time,, coming and go- Circuit Court Notes. State vs. Charles Howell, burglary; continued. J. W. Stanley is appointed grand jury bailiff.

Jluvliig , Been Secured. ,, R Barney Klein,... the murderer of Jobri Gibbs, is again breathing- the free air of heaven after a little more than a week's incarceration in the county jail. His friends bestirred themselves after the amount of his bond was placed and on Sunday morning appeared before the Mayor with the $10,000 bond properly secured. Klein's bondsmen are F. M. Wagner, Eugene Prager, Joseph Klein, John Klein and wife. On the due approval of the above security, Klein ' was dismissed from custody. The Grand Jury convened yesterday and his case was under investigation and an indictment will, probably soon be forthcoming. The matter of bond, or not, will then rest with the Judge of the Circuit Court. A Nciv Grocer}' Store. Ths new grocery store of Dolan & Twomey, in the opera house block will be open this morning. Mr. Dolan needs no introduction, to the grocery buying public of Logans-port, his former experience in that line having popularized his methods to all. Mr. Ed Twomey his partner, who will have most of the management of the concern on his shoulders,, is a young man of careful business habits well qualified, by several years active experience, for the arduous task of catering to a discriminating' public. Both members of the firm are possessed of indomitable energy and the new store starts out with the entire confidence of the people. Wood Broke Down, Richmond Palladium.- The heavy penalty was clearly not expected by the defendant, and he broke down and cried like a child as he was being removed from the room. The verdict was a compromise one. On the first ballot four jurors voted for conviction of murder in the second degree and life imprisonment, while the remaining eight voted for various Other penalties. After several ballots they succeded in agreeing on the above verdict. The attorneys for the defendant, Messrs. Fox & Robbins, will file a motion for a new trial next Tuesday. LEAVE YOUR ORDER.
