Under this heading Wayne County News is publishing from time to time interesting bits of local history. We shall appreciate accurate contributions for this column from ore loaders. A of interesting facts are contained in the following historical sketch about Wayne County which appears in the newest edition of the West Virginia Bluebook.

The following sketch is particularly enlightening about some of the things of interest in the life of General Anthony Wayne, the man for whom our county was named:.

Wayne County takes its name from General Anthony Wayne, who won fame in the Revolution and glory at the battle of Fallen Timbers, where he broke the Indian Confederacy and saved the Virginia border from hostile incursions of the red tribesmen. His service to the western settlers was recognized and rewarded by the bestowal of his name upon this important county.

He was educated in Philadelphia, and later opened a surveyor's office in his native town. He was sent to Nova Scotia in to locate a grant of land from the crown to a company of Pennsylvanians, and was made superintendent of this settlement. He held this place two years, when he returned and d his profession.

He was the commander in chief at Germantown, Brandywine and Monmouth, in all of which engagements he was distinguished for his valor. The storming and capture of Stoney Point raised him to the highest mark in the admiration of his countrymen. He went to the south with the Pennsylvania line in and cooperated with Lafayette in the Virginia campaign, culminating in the surrender of General Cornwallis distance his army at Yorktown. After this campaign he operated in Georgia with his troops and with such success that the Legislature of Georgia paid him the compliment of endowing him with a valuable farm.

He served in the Pennsylvania convention that ratified the Federated Constitution then removed to his Georgia farm and was honored by that state by election to Congress and served from March 4, to March 21, He again entered dating service of the United States Army as a major general, and general-in-chief of the army, and personally took command of the troops sent against the western Indians, who had destroyed the army of St.

Clair and other troops sent against them. He set about his campaign slowly but surely, and in the battle of Fallen Timbers, fought in August, frenchman, he completely overwhelmed and crushed the hostile tribes. The frontier was relieved from ever-present dread of the recurring Indian raids, and a great empire was open to the settlement of the Whites. General Wayne concluded Huntington treaty with the Indians one year later, and while engaged in public service, returning from a trip to the west, fell ill and died in a hut at Presque Isle on December 15, General Wayne was one of the outstanding military leaders of the Revolution, he led his troops against odds when others feared to move.

He it was who remarked to the commander-in-chief that "he would storm hades if you Washington will only plan it. The death of Congressman James A. Hughes last Sunday afternoon, Mar. The citizens of Wayne County have particular reason to mourn the passing of this illustrious man as the loss of a loyal friend. For many years the life of Mr. Hughes has been closely identified with Wayne County interests.

He had ably represented this county in Congress; much of the campaigning of his early years was on Wayne County soil; he had lived in Wayne County and at his death was an extensive property owner here; his widow, Mrs. Belle Vinson Hughes, is a native Wayne County woman. All of which causes our people to keenly share the wide-spread bereavement which the news of his death has brought. As a public official Mr. Hughes was unselfish and public-spirited to a high degree; as a citizen and a business man he was progressive, energetic, broadminded; as a friend to thousands, regardless of race, religion or politics, he was loyal, sympathetic, thoughtful, always possessing a rare capacity for friendship for the man or woman who needed his assistance.

Hughes was one of the most dependable and aggressive supporters of the Republican party in the State, yet he was never partisan to the extent that he would not befriend a man of opposite political beliefs quite as readily as one of his own political faith.

Indeed he lived that virtue in a remarkable manner. Those whose privilege it was to know him intimately, and that is legion, knew Mr. Hughes to be a Christian gentleman, a faithful and honorable public servant and a man who valued his personal friendship as his greatest asset in life. And no better eulogy could be paid to any man than that.

His career of nearly throe score and ten years is crowded with noteworthy achievements and kindnesses which cause him to be highly respected and affectionately remembered by a great army of people in every walk of life. In the last conversation which the writer enjoyed with Mr. Hughes he expressed a sentiment revealing his fine character by saying that after all man's only excuse for existence in the world is the good he can do for his fellowman. In the room of the writer hangs a framed expression of this same philosophy under the title "The Love of Friends.

But when he nears the end of life And looks back o'er the years of strife, He finds that Happiness depends On none of these,—but love of friends. Hughes comfort and solace may be had in this sad hour by reflection upon the life he lived and the friends he made. Truly, he found his happiness in life in the love of friends and in their hearts he still lives m loving memory.
