Canandaigua, Jan. 5 - "Orthopedics" will be the subject of an address by Dr. L. A. WHITNEY of Rochester before members of the Ontario County Medical Society at a quarterly meeting at Florence Villa, this city, Tuesday evening. Dr. C. Harvey JEWETT of Clifton Springs, will deliver the annual president's address. The program opens at 5:30 o'clock with a business session, followed by dinner and the scientific meeting.

Canandaigua, Jan. 5 - Canandaigua post office receipts for 1928 were the largest in its history and exceed those of 1927 by $2,220.84, according to announcement made today by Deputy Postmaster John W. NIBLOCK. Total receipts for last year were $53,913.70 as compared with $51,692.86 the preceding year.
Huge volumes of election circulars, letters and the like passing through the office during the campaign last Fall, are largely responsible for the unprecedented increase, Mr. NIBLOCK believes. There was a normal gain of approximately $1,000, he states, due to increased business of local manufacturers.

Canandaigua, Jan. 5 - Action on the application of the White Rapid Transit Bus Line to extend its service from the city limits to a downtown hotel will be taken by the Common Council at its next regular meeting on Jan. 18. Such action has been deferred by the aldermen from time to time over a period of several weeks.

The career of John North Willys, now very much in the public eye because of his disposal of his very large automobile interests, is outlined in the New York and Chicago newspapers as follows: 

Mr. Willys, born in Canandaigua, N. Y., fifty five years ago, has been president of Willys Overland since he founded the business in 1907. He started out in life as a bicycle repair man in Canandaigua, and later moved to Elmira, N. Y., where he founded the Elmira Arms Company, a sporting goods store. 
For years he was interested in horseless carriages, selling the machine in Elmira.  In 1907, with financial backing, he bought the Overland Automobile Company plant on Indianapolis, then on the verge of a financial collapse. Early in 1909 he acquired the old Pope Toledo plant in Toledo, Ohio, and moved his manufacturing headquarters there. 
The Willys Overland Company and the F. B. Stearns Company, controlled by Mr. Willys, have the exclusive American rights to the Knight sleeve valve motor. The company was one of the pioneers in mass automobile production. In addition to its Toledo factory, Willys Overland operates plants in Pontiac, Mich., Elyria, Ohio, Elmira, NY, and Los Angeles. 
Details of the transaction by which Mr. Willys disposed of his large holdings in the Willys Overland companies are not disclosed but it has been estimated that they involve a sum in excess of $20,000,000. It has been reported that Mr. Willys is slated for a diplomatic position and his name has been mentioned in Washington in connection with Spain and Japan, where American embassies are maintained.

DEATH OF MISS CHARLOTTE E. CLARK -  Last of Children of Governor Myron H. Clark
A gentle and much loved spirit passed out of Canandaigua life in the death of Charlotte E. Clark at her home in Gibson street, this city,
Saturday evening. 
Miss Clark's last illness was of brief duration. Up to within a fortnight of the end, she was able, despite her great age, to receive friends who called and to advise with her associates on the Board of Managers of the Clark Manor House on which she had served for many years. 
Miss Clark was nearly 91 years of age, having been born in Canandaigua, on November 21, 1838, and having spent her entire life here, except for the time the family were in Albany during her father's term as Chief Executive of the State. She received her education in the Ontario Female Seminary at Canandaigua, and in the Albany Female Seminary, graduating from the last mentioned institution in 1856.
 Miss Clark's nearest surviving relatives are two nephews, Hon. Clark Williams of New York, son of the Capt. and Mrs. George N. Williams
of Canandaigua, and Emory W. Clark of Detroit, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Lorenzo E. Clark of that city. A Grand Niece Mary Clark Kirkham,daughter of the late Mrs. Stanton D. Kirkham of this city, has made her home much of the time with Miss Clark. She is now a student in the Michigan State University at Ann Arbor. 
Mr. and Mrs. Emory W. Clark have two daughters, Elizabeth, wife of Walbridge Taft of New York, and Martha, wife of Henry Sheldon of Detroit, and one son, William Reeve Clark, of Detroit. Miss Cinda Watkins of Naples is a cousin of Miss Clark. 
Miss Clark was the last survivor of the five children, four daughters and one son, born to a family prominent in the pioneer history of this county and having forbears of honorable distinction in Revolutionary annals. Her Great Grandfather, Col. William Clark, brought his family of ten children, and four step children from Massachusetts to Naples, this county, in 1789. Col. Clark's eighth child, Joseph Clark, who served as a Major in the War of 1812, was the father of Myron Holley Clark, and the grandfather of Charlotte E. Clark, now deceased.
Myron H. Clark, Miss Charlotte's father, rose to political prominence being accorded election, first as Sheriff of Ontario County, then as State Senator from the Ontario-Livingston district, and finally in 1854, as Governor of the State. He attained the last mentioned honorable distinction through his selection as the candidate of Anti Slavery Whigs. Prohibition or "Maine Law" men, and representatives of the then newly organized Republican party. Elected through the condition of these political elements he became the first Republican Governor of this or any other State.
 Miss Clark's mother was, previous to her marriage to Myron H. Clark, June 14, 1830, Zilpha Watkins of Naples. The oldest of five children born to Mr. and Mrs. Myron H. Clark was a son, Lorenzo E. Clark, who was born in Naples, January 11, 1833, and died in Detroit, April 22, 1919. The next child was Zilpha, Mrs. Samuel D. Backus, of Canandaigua, who was born in Naples, August 3, 1834, and died in Canandaigua, June 6, 1915. A second sister, Mary, Mrs. Frederick Ferris Thompson, of New York City, was born in Naples, December 7, 1835, and died in Canandaigua, July 28, 1923. Charlotte E. Clark was born in Canandaigua, November 21, 1838, and the youngest of the sisters, Abigail Stanley, Mrs. George N. Williams, was born in Canandaigua, September 24, 1843, and died here, January 24, 1902.
 Miss Clark was in frail health from early girlhood. Unable to engage actively in the community life, she remained the center of a quiet and singularly devoted home circle and availed herself of every occasion to manifest her keen interest in the happiness of the people by whom she was surrounded. She showed a special interest in young people, particularly in the young men connected with our local volunteer Fire Department. It is remembered that some years ago, before the fire fighting equipment was motorized, she provided the Merrill Hose Company, of which a young man in her household was a member and an officer, with a particularly handsome team of horses. She gave the village a national flag of huge proportions and otherwise manifested a deep interest in civic affairs, while contributing liberally to church, missionary and political organizations whose interests she had at heart. She especially befriended the Memorial Hospital that her sister, Mrs. Thompson, founded and she served, as stated above, as a member of the Board of Managers in the care of the Clark Manor House, another of Mrs. Thompson's benefactions to the community. She was a liberal in her gifts to the Congregational church, of which she was a member from girlhood, to the Ontario County Historical Society in the founding and maintenance of which she helped generously, and to other local organizations and to individuals in need of aid or encouragement.
Relatives and friends gathered for the funeral service held in the home yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock and a wealth of flowers testified to the respect and love of organizations and individuals. 
The service was conducted by Rev. Livingston L. Taylor of Keene Valley and Rev. Lewis T. Reed of Flatbush, former pastors of the church
of which Miss Clark had been a life long member, and was of a most appropriate character. 
 The following professional and business men acted as honorary bearers, Justice Robert F. Thompson, Dr. John H. Jewett, Edward G. Hayes, George W. Hamlin, William Seward of Auburn, Dr. Robert G. Cook, Charles C. Sackett, Addison P. Wilbur, Ira N. Croucher, Dr. Fred
McClellan, Frank Eighmey and Charles F. Milliken.
The active bearers were, E. Raymond Church, William J. Tracey, Alexander Davidson, Arthur Thompson, Fred Kershaw and Welson Kershaw,
all members of the Merrill Hose company. The interment was in the family plot in Woodlawn.

Fred M. Locke, Inventor of Insulator, Dies at Victor - Victor, April 15 - Fred M. Locke, Inventor of the porcelain Insulator and oven glass, died suddenly of heart failure at his home in East Main Street about 8.30 o'clock this morning. Grief over the death of his son and co-worker, Fred J. Locke, on March 7, undoubtedly shortened the life of the inventor, who was the originator of many devices and materials besides the two which are of paramount importance, the Locke Insulator and heat-enduring glass.

Mr. Locke was born at West Mendon. April 24. 1861. a son of Mr. and Mrs. William Morton Locke.  He became a telegraph operator and followed that occupation from 1880 to 1887.  It was while acting as an operator and station agent at the New York Central Station at Victor, that he began the experiments that produced the porcelain insulator.  He began the manufacture of insulators in 1898, employing only a few men, but the demand for his product grew rapidly and the Victor plant grew also, becoming the largest factory in the world.


Mr. Locke retired from active business in 1904, but continued to work as an inventor, conducting his experiments in his large laboratory at his home.   The business which he founded was incorporated in 1902 as the Locke Insulator Manufacturing Company and now employs about 1,000 men in the plant here and in another large plant in Baltimore, Md. 

Besides his wife, Mercy Peer Locke, to whom he was married in 1884, Mr. Locke is survived by four sons: Morton F., of Dobbs Ferry, Louis P., of Victor; Peer, of Raverna, Ohio and James, of Victor and by several grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held at the family's home at 3 o'clock Thursday afternoon, the Rev. Nelson L. Lobdell, and the Rev. Carlyle T. Boynton, officiating.  Burial will be in Boughton Hill cemetery.
