The local market has had another denjosistration of the evils of speculation. in general terms it may be sail that speculation is a necessary and essential evil in stock marhet affairs wit*** certain limitations. There are welt defined limitations that cannot b« orerstepped with impunity. There has been absolutely nothing is recent eveats to adversely affect intrinsic values in the local stock market There has however been another object lesson brought .home as the evils of I WILL REVIEW THE ELYRIA A review of the proceedings in the Tne bank instituted bankruptcy pro- Cassie L, Chadwick bankruptcy case was asked In a petition filed in the United States circuit court of appeals at Cincinnati Saturday by Nathan Loeser, trustee in bankruptcy. His petition avers that on April 17, 1904, Mrs. Chadwick was indebted to the Savings Deposit Bank Trust Co. of Elyria, in the sum of $37,000 and ou protest by the bank she executed an additional promissory note of $101,000. ceedings. Tbe notes were secured by her personal estate. She dented thtir priority of claim and was sustained by tbe referee in bankruptcy. United States Judge R. W. Taylor reversed the referee's decision and allowed the bank the $37,000. Losses petition is intended to have the Taylor decision reviewed that all creditors of Mrs. Cbadwick realize on tbeir claims and the bank get its pro rata share. EXISTS BEiWEEN NEW "SHORT STORIES A loaa* Lawyer'* Flr*t CAM. Judge James J.' Banks, tbe well fcncwa Denver lawyer, !s a native of the south. It was ia Birmingham, Ala^ that he hung out his first shingle. For a long while Judge Banks sat in his office aad wondered what a l»w client looked like. He would read and study to pass the long hours away. Every time be beard footsteps in tbe lull he would straighten ap, assume an tir of knowledge and wait, only to be disappointed, Oo« day an old negro woman entered bis office. "Is yo* de lawyab man?" she asked. Judge Banks Immediately was all attention. This surely wa^ a client. H* answered in the afflrmafve. "Well, »tb," said the vUl woman. "Ah j wants ter ax yo' advfe^. Now, yo' see, { Ah owes rent on ma bouse. Ab kain't | { pay hit, en de lau'lonl say be gwine i pot me out nex' week, ef Ah doan fotch !: found de cash. What's All gwiae ter ,do, Mistab Lawyah Man?" Judge Banks gave himself over to deep study for a moment; then he told WALK over speculation. There has nothing seriously over dona in the local stock marked as yet Some issues have been brought to a point where a little adverse wind cause* a few points set back. This is healthy for tie market The local market, however, ought to be cognizant of the fact that there Is danger ia overdoing the speculative end and those who are preparing for another bull ca'mpaign in tow priced stocks Should take heed ;md listen. The local market has manj high grade Issues offering not only a large income yield "bat enough of prospect for advances to tinge them with the flavor that the speculator likes. Why not let ; these low priced speculative myths and uncertainties take a rest and look to tie certainties or those that may "be regarded as reasonable certainties. If the buyer of Cleveland Sandusky preferred at 81 to 82 is going to lose money by it, the purchaser of the common at 43 to «4 is going to lose twice as much. If the buyer of the latter at 4 i is going to make money by it, the buyer of the preferred at 81 to 82 is doubly sure of a handsome profit Ship Building preferred ought to be considered as good as the highest grade industrial bond. Yet it is selling on a 6.6 per cent basis. That is certainly s attractive a return as one could expect and the purchaser will probably see it advance to a point where he will see something of a speculative profit added. The telephone bonds, Western Ohio bonds, Lak? Shore general 5s, Northern Ohio Trac tion Light 4s and 5s, some of the brewing bonds, and preferred traction shares represent excellent intrinsic values, and most of them have started quarterly or semi-annually income returns. These ought to be the attractions of the local market aad the safe ones for the next year to come. A meeting of tbe citizens «f Ambers*. township was held Saturday-afternoon .where tbe action of the court was bitterly opposed. It will be remembered that last week Judge Washbarn rendered-his decision according te wfiich the citizens of North Amberst were to drop the word "north" and""that henceforth tbe village be known as Amherst. This angered the citizens of the township and caused a ruptioa which will require time to heal. So badly die}, the residents of the quarry district feel that on Saturday afternoon an indignation meeting was held at what is known a* South, Amherst aud $200 was raised by popular subscription and an attorney secured wbo will appeal ibe cose to the circuit court a»d attempt to gain a reversal of the acttoc of Judge Washbura. As tb* matter stands now people are not able to determine what the nanie of -the town really is. While the majority contend that plain anr. unvarnisued Amherst is correct there ace Q^etfcw,ha maintain that the wont "north" better be Used until such .tuae as tbe circuit court has a chance to view the case. Tb« residents of tee quarry district had contemplated incorporation of the settlement there ur-der the name of Amherst, but Because of their being beaten ont in tbe race the}' are very much angered and practically say: "We dent know you any more." PERJUREp HIMSELF while -ne was a "cow a Western ranch. He Chicago, Jan- 16--Edward K. Tufts, reputed to be a milionaire and owner of a number of valuable mines in Montana and other .Northwestern States, was found guilty of perjury, and unless he obtains a new trial will be compelled to serve aa indeterminate sentence of from one to fourteen years ia tbe penitentiary. The legal troubles of Mr. Tufts originated with a divorce suit which he instituted against his wife, whom be bad mairied puncher" on gained a fortune through raining enterprises, and later, it is declared, while his wife was in New York, Tufts came to Chicago and obtained a divorce on the ground of desertion. When Mrs. Tufts heard of the divorce she returned to Chicago and secured the indictment of her husband, charging that she had not deserted him, aad that his evidence to that effect was perjured During the trial which has just closed Tufts took the stand and swore that all the evidence be had given at tie divorce trial was true. He was released on bail, pending an appeal to tbe higher courts. Town*--"Of course, that's the biggest part of bis bard lucl?." Hi* Ambition. Hussel--"Yes, I'm out for the money all the time.
