death Sedgwick, Catherine L.
-
Obituary - Sedgwick. Catherine L. Bacon was born in Northfield, Summit Co. OH, 69 yrs 10 mos ago and died in Marysville on 28 Feb 1914. 1 Jan 1861 she was united in marriage to A. H. Sedgwick, at Greenbush, Sheboygan Co. WI. Mr. and Mrs. Sedgwick came to Washington to 1905 and have lived in Everett and Marysville ever since. To their union was born two sons: C. W. Sedgwick, of this city and H. A. Sedgwick, of Everett. They have one adopted daughter, Mrs. Tillie Jean, of Tacoma WA. Mrs. Sedgwick has been a sufferer from paralysis for the past nine years--the last two years of her life she was helpless. Her husband had complete charge of her and on fine days it was not an uncommon sight to see the old gentleman wheeling her around down in the chair. Her end came very peacefully and the funeral was held at the Marysville Undertaking Parlors on Tuesday March 3, Rev. John Chandler officiating. Interment took place at the I.O.O.F. Cemetery under the direction of Undertaker C. H. Schaefer. Mrs. Sedgwick was a woman of great character, although she suffered untold agony for nearly ten years. she was always optimistic and never complained. Her reward should be great in that better world.
of interest - roads
-
Some of our citizens think the job done on the Pacific Highway north of town is pretty "bummy". We are informed by an automobile owner that the work was accepted last Saturday by the state highway commission, and that when he drove over the same on Sunday the water was eight inches deep in the ruts. He is ready to stake his reputation that there is not 30 per cent of gravel on the road. The road from Front street to the town limits on State street is fine and autos that formerly went around by Arlington whizz up the avenue in fine style.

-
Local and Personal - F. H. Plont returned Friday night from Frankfort MI where he has spent the past two weeks visiting his mother, who is ill, and other relatives and friends. Frank says it was 12 below zero there and about a foot of snow on the ground. More than once, he thought of little old Puget Sound and that Mendota Coal. He told the editor that he wouldn't give a doughnuthole for all of the state of Michigan both upper and lower peninsula.

letter to the editor Gibson, Mary Notice - To the people of Snohomish Co. and voters who elected our County Prosecuting Attorney, R. J. Fausset, I would like to state why the case of Arthur Gibson, arrested for attempted rape on my twelve year old daughter, was dismissed. I was the only eye witness to the crime, but because it was my misfortune to be his wife I could not testify in criminal Court against him as the laws of the State of Washington forbid a wife testifying against her husband. Faussett, althou he admitted that he believed the man guilty refused to prosecute, because he said the child was too young to put the case strong enough to convince the jury, signed. Mary Gibson.

Two Local Grocers Have Narrow Escape
Messrs. Hilton and Witt, who conducted a neat little grocers at the corner of First and State streets, had a narrow escape on Friday of last week. They ate canned pineapple and salt fish for luncheon, and in a few hours both were in the thoes of poison convulsions. It look for a time that the "Grim Reapers" had them, put by good care and hard work by our local doctors, they both recovered. The doctors say that it is undoubtedly the action of the gases of the fish and pineapple combined which caused the poison as Mrs. Witt ate freely of the fish, but did not touch the pineapple and suffered no ill effects. George English kept the grocery going while the boys were ill, and now they are both are back at work, although rather weak and pale.
marriage Hammel, Earl

Getchell Road - Earl Hammel and Beulah Hawes of Getchel were married in Everett Saturday. The young people have the best of wishes of a large circle of friends.
railroads The G. N. Railway now has the Automatic Block System on the Coast Line from one end to the other and it is an impossibility for an operator or anyone else to cause a wreck through carelessness. The only way that a wreck can occur is when the engineer and firemen go to sleep or die at their post. Of course there are wrecks which are caused by circumstances which human ingenuity can not cope with --spreading of rails, washouts and slides, for instance.
saw mills The knot sawers at the John McMaster Shingle Co.'s mill went out on strike last Friday morning. They struck for 50 cents a day in advance of the Union Scale and the McMaster people promptly refused to comply with the demand. Here's a situation that the Globe does not care to get mixed up in. The Union had nothing to do with the strike -- the men went out on their own account, claiming that they were compelled to do more work then their share on account of poor timber. McMasters have always paid the Union Scale of wages and are considered "Fair" by the Union, so it seemingly developed into a personal matter. A bunch of knot sawyers came up from Seattle on Tuesday of this week and it is said that hasty words were exchanged between the local men and the newcomers Mr. Michael Kidder, president of the Local Union tells us that the matter has been settled to the satisfaction of all concerned, for which we are truely grateful.

letter to editor Gibson, Arthur Notice. Everett Wash. 24 Mar 1914. Dear Sir - My attention was called to a scandalous letter that appeared in your columns signed by Mary Gibson, my wife, accusing the prosecuting attorney, R. G. Faussett, of dismissing a case against me for criminal misconduct arising out of charges made by my wife. I desire to say that after I was arrested, the prosecuting attorney made a thorough investigation of the matter; the superior court appointed a reputable physician to make investigation and without any testimony whatever on my part, it was evident that there was not any evidence against me and the case was dismissed. My wife could have been a witness in the case unless I objected and no objection whatever was made. I was never guilty of the charge and it was a trumped-up proposition from the start. Very truly yours. Arthur Gibson.
