Three men stand trial
In Warren County Court, Adolph Miller was convicted of assault in the third degree and John Konoh, alleged to have been his companion in crime, was acquitted. The two men were indicted for the stabbing of Miak Kalafan, a Spaniard, on Aug. 26, 1913, in North River and had been held on a second-degree assault charge.
In another case, Charles Belden of Bolton pled guilty Nov. 17, 1913 to a charge of bigamy. His attorney, J. Edward Singleton, pleaded for leniency as Belden claimed to have been advised he had the right to marry a second time. He was released on a suspended sentence.
Republicans big winners in election
The results of the Nov. 4, 1913 election in Warren County were mainly in favor of the Republicans. Here and there a lone Democrat slipped into town office, but the number was not large.
Milton N. Eldridge was again voted into the supervisor’s office in Warrensburgh with 286 Republican votes and 183 Democratic votes.
In the supervisors race in local towns, Charles H. Baker won In Thurman, Beecher Glassbrook in Stony Creek, Fred Rogers in Johnsburgh, Jesse Starbuck in Horicon, Fred R. Smith in Bolton and Harry S. Downs (D) in Chester. Dr. Charles K. Burt, Lake George Republican, candidate for Coroner, was elected by a large plurality.
Ladies in love
Arthur Chatterdon, a remarkably handsome and attractive young actor, appeared Nov. 10, 1913 at the Empire Theatre in Glens Falls, and was there every day thereafter for a week at the daily matinee. His tour has been very successful due to his wide circle of admirers.
Mr. Chatterdon’s company included Miss May Melvin, a leading actress. Ladies’ tickets were limited to only 128 on Monday night at 15 cents each.
Wife denies husband’s accusations
Mrs. Henry Cady of Chestertown, takes exception to the statements published recently in the Warrensburgh News regarding her troubles with her husband, alleging that the story told by Mr. Cady was altogether one-sided and calculated to place her in a false light. She denies each and every allegation reflecting upon her character and asserts that she has been greatly wronged by her husband and those who have been given ear to his story.
