THE LYONS REPUBLICAN
Thursday, January 8, 1880
The following was transcribed from an original copy of "The Lyons Republican," Thursday, January 8, 1880. This paper also traditionally carried quite a bit of news from the Town of Galen, as well as other county towns. This is Part 4 of a 4-installment transcription.
Here and Hereabout
- The Carman farm of 120 acres at Junius is for sale. Inquire of M.J. Waterman.
- A portion of Greenway's brewery in Syracuse caved in on Monday, entailing a loss of $17,000.
- Hon. John H. Camp returned to Washington on Monday night, Mrs. Camp and Miss Rebe accompanying him.
- Sheriff Glen took possession of the Sheriff's residence and jail on Monday - ex-Sheriff Clark returning to his former home in Marion.
- The organization of the Legislature was greatly facilitated this year by the early presence and kindly interest of something like a score of Republicans from Wayne county.
- Mr. T.W. Collins, Jr., has been appointed Surrogate's Clerk, in place of George Keut, who has been connected with the office since 1864; and will attend to business-calls with promptness.
- The ridiculous story about Mr. Vanderbilt endeavoring to persuade the people of Lyons to change the name of the town, is having an extended run through the newspapers - equal to the yarn about the edge-tool manufactory.
- The Dem. Press is rejoiced to find two towns in Cayuga county, Genoa and Ledyard, that pay higher taxes (in proportion to their assessments) than Lyons -and exultingly exclaims "GOOD!" Perhaps Genoa and Ledyard have been playing at railroad bonding, too.
- Mr. S.H. Parker has recently completed the thirty-fifth year of his connection with The Geneva Gazette as its editor; and we hope he has twice as many years still before him. For Parker is one of the best fellows living, if he is a little askew politically.
- Invitations have been sent out by Humanity Lodge, No. 406, F. & A.M., of this village, announcing a social party on Thursday evening next, at Towar's Hall. The arrangements are in competent hands, and we advise those who were fortunate enough to get an invitation to attend if possible.
- Geo. Strife, the young man who recently helped the woman he calls his wife to nearly kill Theodore Creager, was arrested last week charged with having robbed a hen-coop near the tannery - breaking a lock in so doing. He was examined before Esq. Mason, and committed to await the action of the grand jury.
- Our friend Dr. D.F. Wilcox, formerly of Newark, now of Catskill, has assumed the leadership of St. Luke's choir in the last-named place; and The Recorder says that he "may facilitate himself upon the fact that he is the right man in the right place, and that his efforts are really appreciated. No better singing was ever heard in Catskill than is now to be heard of St. Luke's choir. Long may the Doctor wave!"
A new time-card went into effect on the Geneva & Lyons and the Geneva, Ithaca & Sayre railroads on Sunday last. The evening train south that formerly left at 6:30 now leaves at 6 o'clock. This is the only change in the times of passenger trains. Two freights (numbers 66 and 69) have been taken off, leaving twenty-two regular trains on the Geneva & Lyons road.
Joseph Drexelius, the chief operator and train dispatcher of the western division of the N.Y. Central, was presented on New-Year's day with a gold watch and chain and a dictionary, all from the operators between Syracuse and Buffalo. Mr. Drexelius is very popular with all classes of railroad men.
The coal trade over the S.G. & C.R.R. is dropping off slightly.
The pay of the three engineers running the passenger trains between Lyons and Sayre has been advanced ten dollars per month.
Five new engines for the Missouri Pacific railroad went west on Friday last.
The S.G. & C.R.R. Co. have bought some flats of the Ontario Southern road, and will use them in their coal trade.
There were 181 trains sent east and west from the Lyons yard in December.
In addition to the coal loaded on engines here, there were 25,589 tons sent to stations between Niagara Falls and Albany in December.
46,447 tons of individual freight were shipped from this station in December, 28,220 tons of which were private shipments of coal.
The annual game supper at Congress Hall on Saturday evening, given by the members of the Spencer Sportsmen's Club, was a very gratifying success and much enjoyed by such as were present. About forty gentlemen participated and the number would no doubt have been much greater had it not been for the tragedy on Canal street the same afternoon, which was the reason given by several invited guests residing in that vicinity for their non-appearance. The game included all seasonable varieties found in this section, and some procured from abroad - all cooked to perfection,and calling out the warmest compliments of the excellent cuisine of mine host Langdon.
The aforesaid mortgaged premises so to be sold as aforesaid described in said mortgage as follows: All that tract or parcel of land situate in the town of Gouverneur, in the county of St. Lawrence and State of New York [long surveyor's description omitted here. Please check with county clerk's office for deeds owned by parties mentioned. Parties whose lands adjoined this parcel were C.C. Laidlow and Cornelia Bullard, with mention that this tract was previously owned by John C. Eager and wife in 1871, Clerk's Office, St. Lawrence Co., liber 91 of deeds, at page 219].
Also, all that other tract or parcel of land situate in the town of Palmyra, county of Wayne and State aforesaid, lying about one mile south of Palmyra village on the Canandaigua plank road, and known as the Acker place, deeded to Rhoda A. Sherman by Lucy Acker October 9, 1864, and bounded on the north by a piece of land now owned by Mrs. Homer Williams; on the east by the David Johnson farm; on the south by H.S. Riggs' (formerly John L. Hardenburgh's) land; on the west by the above mentioned highway, containing fourteen acres of land, be the same more or less. Reference is had for description of premises last above mentioned to a deed from Sarah Powell to the party of the first part, dated March 31, 1870, recorded in Wayne county Clerk's Office April 9, 1870, in liber 101, page 332. - Dated Lyons, Jan. 8, 1880.
