Senator Rorick

A Man in Whom Adrian Has Some Interest.

Senator Rorick, of Wauseon, was in the city a short time to-day, coming fresh from his election in the Toledo district.  Mr. Rorick has many friends in Adrian who will throw aside party bias and feel delighted at his return to the Ohio Senate by a majority of nearly 6,000 in a Democratic district.  The senator has a running mate in his district, namely Senator McConica.  The first named gentleman was running against a very popular Toledo man named Brand, Senator McConica was running against McClure. Both names in each party are one ticket, but the division is virtually made as stated. The district embraces Lucas, Wood, Hancock, Fulton, Putnam and Henry counties.  Two years ago Senator Rorick was elected by 1,400 majority, and his increased vote is very flattering for the gentleman.

The senator has a daughter living here, Mrs. W.C. McConnell, and has made many acquaintances here.

Untitled (J.P. Sutton)

As is well known to most of our citizens, J.P. Sutton since the first week in July, has been doing more or less business as justice of the peace, upon the strength of a certificate of election signed by C.A. Gallagher, chairman of the board of inspectors at the spring election in the township of Benton. Recently Wm. Hudson was arrested for some offense, and was tried before would-be justice Sutton, and by him committed to jail. Wednesday, upon petition by F.H. Fife as attorney, a writ of habeas corpus was issued in behalf of Hudson, and a hearing had before Circuit Court Commissioner Frost, and the prisoner discharged upon the showing made by his attorney that Mr. Sutton was not legally acting, not having been elected to the office. The result has been that two others have commenced suit against Mr. Sutton and Marshall Paquette for false imprisonment, both having been committed under similar circumstances, and we understand that other suits are likely to follow.

Untitled (James J. Reynolds)

James J. Reynolds, Esq., of Pulteney, received the Republican nomination for Member of Assembly from the First District of Steuben on Saturday last.  from a business and social acquaintance with Mr. Reynolds, extending through a number of years, we are prepared to give him our endorsement for business ability and integrity.  He is held in high esteem wherever known, and will make a legislator that will not be turned from the best interests of the people by bribes or other means of personal emolument.  A vote cast for James J. Reynolds will be a vote in the interest of reform and good government, and that is the demand of the solid mass of men of both great political parties.—Prattsburg News.

We shall hope to see Mr. Reynolds elected.  That he will get a good vote in Pulteney nobody can doubt.
