          A meeting of the county officers and ex-county officers was held Tuesday afternoon at the Recorder's office to take action on the death of  John R. Sedgwick.
          Anderville Shaw  was called to the chair and  John Ferris  selected as secretary.
          R. W. Harrison,  Anderville Shaw  and  Charles Amsden  were appointed a committee to prepare a memorial and resolutions, and afterwards they reported the following:
          With a deep sense of sadness and loss we are confronted with the awful fact that death has again invaded our ranks, and removed from our midst and from the busy scenes of life our worthy and esteemed friend and brother officer,  John R. Sedgwick.
          His career as a county officer and deputy county clerk was marked with difelity to his employers and integrity to his associates and the courts.
          His palin and unassuming manner, his courteous and affable demeanor at all times and under all circumstances made him a close companion, and his sunshiny disposition will ever remain fresh in our memories.
          His private character was above reproach, and before the public he stood as an upright, worthy and esteemed citizen.
          To his grief stricken family and relatives we extend our fullest sympathy in this hour of their deepest sorrow.
R.  W.  HARRISON,     }
