Recognition o( Good Work.
At their mecling yesterday the
county commissioners elected Thomas
Svoboda to the position of janitor at
the court house, a position whi.h he
has held for a short time since the
death of his brother Frank, ami in
which he was in charge for a number
of years past though in the name of
his brother whose health wassuchthat
he himself could not attend to the
duties thereof. In giving this position
to Mr. Thomas Svoboda, the comtnis
sionwers have recognized merit, and
have retained one of the most faithful
and accommodating men that posi
tion ever had.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 21. (Sim
cial Correspondence.) The president
has sent to the senate the nomination
of Judge Lurton of Tennessee as an
associate justice of the supreme court,
notwithstanding the protests and ob
jections filed, and it is generally under
stood that he will be confirmed. The
principal objections to the judge are
on account of his age, being over
sixty, as well as the charge that he has
private cars furnished him by rail
road.!, and that his decisions have
uniformly favored corporations. These
charges are being investigated, but
by the government and the fanners
should profit by it, and if these ad
vi'. nee lectures prove successful the
practice will be continued, covering
the fanning communities of the west.
Mrs. Taft will perforin most of
her social duties by proxy, as her health i
will not permit her to ..ndertake t!ie
strain of all the White House func-;
turns. She lias already reduced the
number of invitations, and will con
stitute iier sister or some cabinet lady
to bear the burden of general recep
tions. She is more exclusive th;.:i was
Mrs. Roosevelt, and is seldom seen
on the streets of this city, either vis
ting or shopping.
A great flood of bills were intro
duced in Congress the opening day,
but few of them, however, will return
to the house for action, as it is under
stood that many bills are never to be
reported from the committees. Hills
of this kind are introduced to satisfy
constituents, without any hope of
passing, and include those relating to
post Jilice im ldinfr. . Therefore, if
you see that your congressman has
introduced a bill for the purchase of
a site and the construction of a
building at your town, do not think
that he is serious in the matter as he
knows that it will n;ver be reported
back to the house, but will die a quiet
death in committee, as he intended
Rests In Silent City.
Sunday the remains f James
Railing, for a numbers of year a res
ident of this place, arrived from his
late heme at (ireenwood accompanied
by his son W. F. Railing and family
and other friends and was n.ct at the
station by members of the Masonic
lodge of this place, of which Mr.
Railing was a member during his life
time. The body was escorted to the
Fpiscopal church where the services
were conducted by Canon Rurgcss,
who also delivered the funeral oration
of Mrs. Railing some years since.
The remains were laid to rest in Oak
Hill cemetery, according to the im
pressive ritual of the Masonic order.
Mr. Railing ' was born in London.
Fngland in 1S23, and was SO years of
age. While in England he was united
in marriage with Miss Morgan and
removed to this place in 1S07, living
here until about fifteen years since
when he went to (ireenwood to live
at the home of his son, Walter K.

as the president is strongly impressed
with his legal ability. The judge is a
democrat in politics and will probably
have the united and ardent support
of his party in the senate, as he is re
garded by all as a man of Ability.
