Application filed April 13, 1891, Serial No. 388,670. (No model)
To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ELHANAN H. FRANKLIN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Berrett, in the County of Carroll and State of Maryland, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cultivating-Plows, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to that class of cultivating-plows in which the drag-bars are laterally adjustable to work the shovels closer together or farther apart.

The main objects in view are to provide for the lateral movement of the drag-bars at one side of the plow independent of those at the other side, to provide for raising the drag-bars on pivots to elevate the shovels from the ground, and to provide an improved construction of colter and wheel to facilitate side-hill plowing.

To this end the invention consists in the novel features of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter described, and pointed out in the claims.

A Man Who Knows The Answers

By Walter Ward - (This is the 2nd of two articles on Mr. Franklin)

Day after working day, winter or summer, Herbert F. Franklin sits in his green leather chair outside of Mayor D’Alessandro’s office in City Hall and with unruffled demeanor listens to people gripe.

Plaintive woes of all kinds are heaped upon this short, stocky man who used to be a police magistrate but now meets the public as the city's official complaint clerk.

One of the D'Alesandro administration's chief extinguishers of public ire, Mr. Franklin investigates gripes about municipal services. If he learns that the complaints are justified, he must see that proper redress is given.

Workmen Sent Out

Sometimes this can be accomplished by sending out a crew of workmen to pick up a can of garbage or to patch a hole in the street. Or possibly an entire roadway may have to be repaved.

But whatever the difficulty, Mr. Franklin says, he is "only too glad to do what is necessary because helping people is not only my pleasure, but my religion."

The man who professes this altruistic outlook on life is a 265-pound, square faced individual who wears dark-rimmed glasses and has a monk like fringe of red hair around the top of his head.

Persons who telephone Mr. Franklin or drop into his office will discover that his strongest expletive seems to be "golly," and that his reputation for extraordinary calmness is based on substantial fact.

Seldom Gets Excited

"Sometimes I get excited," Mr. Franklin confesses., "but not too often. There isn't any sense in getting all riled up."

However, one type of individual does grate on Mr. Franklin's nervous system. That is the man who telephones about a complaint and begins the conversation with a chain of curses and personal vilification.

"Now, I seldom get a call like that," the complaint clerk explains, "but when I do I merely tell him to stop that kind of language,"

"If he doesn't," he added, "I just say that I realize I am a public servant and want to help, but I am not expected to listen to that kind of talk. Then I hang up"

Some Are Polite

The citizens who register their complaints with Mr. Franklin are as unpredictable as the gripes themselves.

The businesslike individual walks into the office, politely asks to have a sidewalk fixed or street lighting increased, and walks back outside. Mr. Franklin notifies the bureau of highways, street lighting or whatever department is appropriate and the whole procedure is completed in a few minutes.

But the next person may take a chair offered by Mr. Franklin and harangue city officials, discuss the weather and suggest she be given a tour of City Hall before getting to the difficulty which brought her there.

A typical case is that of an elderly woman who walked into his office to complain about trucks blocking the alley in back of her home (really a Police Department matter, but taken care of by Franklin.) She was dressed in a flowery hat and a black Persian lamb coat.

Before the "judge," as nearly everyone calls Mr. Franklin since his magistrate's days, learned what the woman wanted he had heard:

1. How the complainant's family had emigrated from Ireland penniless and built up a fortune in real estate.

2. That one of her sons was a doctor, another a lawyer.

3. That her family was "Southern Maryland Irish, not city Irish."

4. And that if nothing was done about high taxes she didn't know what she should do, particularly since her family had been paying taxes for 100 years and should not have to any more.

"A situation like that requires tact," the complaint clerk says. "If we offend people, it reflects on the Mayor So I try and get to the point as quickly as I can without offending."

Most of the complainants have justifiable gripes, he maintains. Occasionally, however, he is confronted by a personage somewhat like Ben King's "The Pessimist." whose lament runs:

"Nothing to do but work.
"Nothing to eat but food,
"Nothing to wear but clothes
"To keep one from going nude."

Mr. Franklin remembers cases that had most frustrating conclusions. One involves a sad-eyed, woefully dressed man about 50 years old who came into the office and said:

Judge, my poor mother is dying. She's in agony with arthritis and the doctors say she'll go soon. I want to do everything I can to help her but I've got a terrible problem."

As the man continued, tears trickled down his face: "I have to work. But I can't now, because I have to stay up all night taking care of mother. Can't you put her in a hospital? I'll be able to pay a few dollars a week."

Man refuses Aid

Mr. Franklin made a series of telephone calls, and although a hospital bed for the chronically ill was not available found a bed in a home for the sick woman. The man, however, would have none of that and strode away.

Investigation of the case continued, during which it was learned that the man, far from being poverty stricken, had a good job and was financially able to hire attendants. The case was dropped.

Many of the people are "really in terrible predicaments though," the complaint clerk said. One mother, whose husband had deserted with six young children, begged for housing and money from Mr. Franklin.

Before sending the woman to the Welfare Department for aid, Mr. Franklin gave her a few dollars from his own pocket "to buy the children some milk."

South Baltimore Figure

"But I can't do that for every case that comes in," he said, "or I'll find myself asking for aid."

Mr. Franklin is a familiar figure around the City Hall and particularly in South Baltimore, where he has lived for his 49 years. He lives at 1550 Harrison street, also the location of his home-appliance business.

He is a member of the Wyatt-Della political faction in the Sixth district. Mr. Franklin became interested in politics about twelve years ago. he says of the great game:

"It helps me meet people and I like to meet people and help them and that is why I invite people to voice their complaints to me at the City Hall."

First Two Floors Collapse During Blaze At House

The first and second floors of a three-story house at Hanover and Randall streets in South Baltimore collapsed last night in a two-alarm fire that raged for about an hour.

An explosion that blew wood from the front door and glass from the windows across the street preceded the fire at the home of Herbert F. Franklin, former magistrate of Southern Police Court and later the city's official complaint clerk.

No One Injured

Battalion Chief K. G. Moses said the fire was thought to have started when a gas burner in the basement exploded shortly before 8:30 P.M.

No one was at home at the time, and no one was injured. Residents of other houses in the block were quickly evacuated.

The south wall of the house, facing Russell street, buckled and fire fighters roped off the area to keep people away in case it fell.

"That's what's got us worried," said Chief Moses.

Residents of the house included Mr. and Mrs. Franklin, Mrs. Franklin's 81-year-old mother, Mrs. Louise Worthington, and two tenants who occupied the basement.

Heard Call From Woman

The Franklin's daughter, Mrs. Andrew Burgess, said that shortly before the blast her father accompanied her mother and grandmother to a church meeting at her house four blocks away, in the 200 block East Randall street.

She said she heard a call from a woman on the block, looked out her window and saw flames coming from her parents' empty home.

Firefighters said the two tenants also were away when the explosion ripped through the house.

One of the first persons on the scene was Sgt. Ralph Copper, of Southern District. He said the explosion had blown clothing from the first floor into the street.

Mr. Franklin was a police court magistrate from 1948 to 1952. Later, he was the city's complaint clerk in the administration of Mayor Thomas D'Alesandro, Jr.

Occupation: Apprentice - bakery (1920); proprietor - tire store (1940); owner - Herb's Tire and Appliance (1942); Southern district Police Court magistrate (1948 - 1952.)

Herbert Frederick Franklin died on 7 December 1987 at Whitehall, Harford Co., MD, at age 84

SEEKS HIS RELATIVES

Man Who Went West Fifty Years Ago Communicates With Postmaster Here.

Assistant Postmaster Southward has received information from an acquaintance in Elk Grove, Cal. that Jabez Buell Franklin, many years ago a resident of Richmond, is attempting to locate his relatives whom he has not seen for fifty years.

Franklin was born in Richmond and lived here for some years. About fifty years ago he left Richmond and went West. Since that time he has not seen or heard from any of his relatives although they were numerous enough at one time. Now that he is seriously ill and unable to take care of himself, he is making a desperate effort to locate his relatives. He has, or has had at the time of his departure, three brothers and two sisters. His brothers are: Emmila Franklin, Howard Franklin, and James Franklin. His sisters are Emma Franklin and Alice Franklin.

He is asking that his relatives or friends communicate with him at once.

NOTE: The birthplace and names of siblings are not a match to the known information about Jabez, son of Charles and Catheine (Kitzmiller) Franklin, but the "near Elk Grove" location is in Sacramento County, CA, not a long distance from San Francisco. DLB 2020.
