Weddings Waiting a Probate Judge

Tiffin, O., June 16 - The probate judge of Seneca county died yesterday, and at the same time the official life of his deputy expired. This leaves the county with nobody empowered to issue marriage licenses. Three weddings, which had been arrange for last night, were postponed in consequence. Tonight is set for one of the most elegant weddings which has taken place here for years. The contracting parties are Hebrews. They are Ben. V. Arnstine, of Cleveland, and Miss Laura Stricker, of this city. Guests are already here from Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus, but unless Governor Foraker appoints a judge to-day, the affair cannot take place. As may be expected, this uncertainty is greatly agitating those most interested.
