ELECTEIC ROAD BONDS.
A Conference at the Bates Concerning
the Martinsville Road.
An important conference "was held In the
Bates Thursday and yesterday concerning:
the building of the, new electric road to
Martinsville. So far as can be learned the
principal parties at tho conference were
Jesse C. Tarkinstoo, of this city, and T. TV.
Newcomer, a well known promoter of
Cleveland, O. The statement was made
yesterday by a man well posted in financial
matters in this city that at this meeting
all arrangements were made for the issue
and disposal of the bonds necessary to
the construction of the road, but this was
denied by Mr. Tarkington, who said that
while it was true that Mr. Newcomer was
here to consult with regard to the issue of
bonds, no decided step had been taken. He
said Mr. Newcomer, who left the city last
evening, would be gone for about two
weeks, at the end of which time something
might be Riven out regarding the road. "At
present there is nothing to say about the
plan." said he.
, Another visitor to the Bates who took an
active interest in the conference was
George Chandler, of Chicago, who. It was
Fold, was making efforts to secure the con
tract for the electric work for the road.
Interlocking? Switch Question.
Representatives of the Pennsylvania
Railroad and the Greenwood electric line
met in the office of State Auditor Hart yes
terday for the purpose of discussing the in
terlocking switch, about which the two
companies have been unable to agree. Un
der the law of 1S37 electric companies
crossing railroad tracks must establish in
terlocking switches at their own expense,
and the Pennsylvania Railroad Is insisting
that this lv shall be observed by the
Greenwood company. The electric com
pany insists that it had a contract with
the railroad company prior to the enact
ment of the law of ISO" whereby it was
agreed that a "D' switch was to be put in,
which the electric railway representatives
fay would be just as effective, as It would
require the conductor of the electric car to
run ahead and open the switch before the
car cou;d cross the tracks. Auditor Hart
took the question under advisement and
will render a decision in the matter some

A BIG DAY FOR KNIGHTS
TIIK TWELFTH niSTHICT MHCTIXG I
is iini.D iv this citv.
OCIcern High In the Order Are In At
tendance a I'nrnde Precedes the
Meeting Secret Work.
Castle Hall was crowded last n?ght with
vifltlng lodges and single Knights of
Pythias to see the exemplification of the
work of the third degree by Excelsior
Lodge of Indianapolis. Two candidates
were taken through the three degrees, but
because of precedent their names may not
be published. The meeting was for the
lodges of the Twelfth district, which In
cludes Marlon, Hancock and Hendricks
counties, and Grand Chancellor J. E. Mc
Donald and Supreme Chancellor Thomaa G.
Sample were guests of honor. F. J. Dun
tin, of Lagrange, grand Instructor of In
diana in secret work, was also present to
see that the ritual was strictly observed
in all its points.
The ceremony is a beautiful one, much
resembling that observed during Masonic
convocations. The principal reason the
names of candidates are never made pub
lic is that many fall to take the last de
gree, and, although many times this is not
the case, the rule of secrecy has been ob
served in order to prevent personal em
barrassments. The ceremonies were presided over by
District Deputy Grand Chancellor M. G.
Porter, of Indianapolis.
The presence of Supreme Chancellor
Sample and Grand Chancellor McDonald
in the city is accounted for by the fact
that Mr. Sample had several complaints to
hear from lodges in the middle West
and selected Indianapolis as the place to
hear them and at the same time convene
the Supreme Tribunal.
The latter body is still considering the
Barry case, and the announcement was
made last night that inasmuch as the evi
dence had not been examined as yet no de
cision could be made for several days yet,
as all the evidence Is in the form of written
fctatements, and after reading these and
hearing statements from the attorneys for
the two parties an opinion will be written
by one member of the tribunal and either
indorsed by the others altogether or In
part. In the latter case a dissenting opin
ion will be written.
Grand Chancellor McDonald has ap
proved the applications for charters for
lodges in Markleville, Madison county, and
Selvin, Warrick county.
PARADE AND MEETING.
The meeting In Tomlinson Hall yesterday
afternoon was preceded by a parade par
ticipated in by the First Regiment of the
Uniform Rank, the visiting companies and
lodges of the "Twelfth district of the Do
main of Indiana," headed by Gen. James
It. Carnahan. The line of march was from
Tomlinson Hall through Market street to
the Statehouse; to Washington street; to
Alabama and back to the hall.
One of the noticeable features of the pa
rade was the large number of automobiles
In line. This Is said to be the first time
they have been used in such numbers for
Speeches were made by Governor Mount,
Mayor Taggart, both of whom are mem
bers, Chancellor James E. McDonald and
Supreme Chancellor Thomas G. Sample.
Governor Mount said in part: "Since Its
organization the order has dispensed in
charity, in the care of the sick, the burial
of the dead, the education of the orphans
and the assistance of widows, a little over
Sfl.OOO.OOO. This does not Include what has
been paid by the endowment rank since Its
organization in November, 1S77, which
amounts to $14,226,077.66, to the widows
and heirs of the deceased members holding
endowment certificates. In the military
branch of the order there are over 52,000
members, organized on the same plan as
the army of the United States. During the
recent war with Spain and the Philippine
islands this order was represented by over
6,000 men, and among the officers of the
United States volunteers it had four briga
dier generals, twenty-four colonels and a
very large number of officers of lesser
rank. The first United States flag In Manila
was raised over the government building
by Lieutenant Povey. of the First Oregon,
who, prior to his enlistment in the United
States volunteer service, was an officer in
the Uniform Rank. Knights of Pythias,

military service in that order. Col. Edward

date, prior to going Into the United States
service was an aid-de-camp on General
Carnahan's staff, in the Uniform Rank.
Capt. Buckey O'Neil, of Roosevelt's Rough
Riders, who was killed at San Juan, was

Supreme Chancellor Sample said the or

were in this. State.
Following the speeches came a regimental
inspection by Col. Harry Sheets, after
which the company officers of the First
Regiment were installed by Gen. W. L.
llelskell, of this city.
Feeling: Agralnst the Papers.
Grand Chancellor J. E. McDonlad, of the
Indiana Knights of Pythias, while at the
Grand Hotel last night said there was a
disposition among the members of the
Grand Lodge to take the headquarters
away from Indianapolis and make it, to
gether with the state meetings, a migratory
affair. He said the attitude of several of
the Indianapolis newspapers In misrepre
senting conditions and affairs in the order
had disgusted the grand officers with this
city as headquarters, and that this senti
ment was fostered by the lodges in the
various districts, nearly all of which, at
their recent district meetings, passed reso
lutions in favor of sending the state meet
ings, along with the headquarters, to the
various cities of the State in rotation, so
that all might have a chance to entertain
the Grand Lodge at somo time. Whether
any action will be taken in the near future
Mr. McDonlad would not say, but he said
the order hod been abused by the papers of
Indianapolis, with the single exception of
the Journal, and that the present feeling
might lead to such a move at any time.

NO BALLS NOR THEATERS
AN EFFORT TO AMEND THE EP
WOHTII LEAGUE CONSTITUTION.
Vice President Hoff Says There Are
Too Many Hypocrites in the League
A Bootless Discussion.
The meeting of the officers of the various
Epworth League societies of this city, held
at the Roberts Park Church last night,
came to nothing in so far as the actual
transaction of business was concerned.
The object of the meeting was two-fold
to receive the report of the committee ap
pointed to revise the constitution of the
Epworth League, and to make some defi
nite arrangements about Inviting the state
convention of Epworth Leaguers to this
city next July, with the end In view of
winding up the meeting with a big Fourth
of July celebration.
After a season of song and prayer, the
president called upon the chairman of the
committee on constitution to read the re
port of the revision, as prepared by the
When the report had been read, the pres
ident called for remarks, whereupon Vice
President Hoff, of the second division, of
fered an amendment so that the constitu
tion would prevent any member of the
league who attended theaters, balls and
like amusements, from being eligible to
hold office rn the league. Another member
present arose at this Juncture and said he
thought it would be casting a reflection on
the Christian spirit of the league to insert
such an amendment. Mr. Hoff then made
the statement that he thought it was nec
essary, as it would prevent the hypocrites
from holding office. Said he: "I tell you the
time has come when we have got to pro
tect ourselves from the hypocrites. They
are always trying to force their way to
the front, and it is time we did something
to weed them out. I want to make the
statement right here that fully 90 per cent,
of the officers" of the Epworth League of
this city are hypocrites, and if we don't
watch out the devil will get us sure. You
know and I jenow thai unless our officers
are Imbued with the spirit of Christ they
are not going to do much good, and the
sooner we get rid of the hypocrites the bet
ter it Is going to be for us."
Mr. Hoff was followed by ether members,
who expressed themselves pro and con on
the amendment, but without arriving at
any definite conclusion in the matter. Fi
nally, after an hour's bootless discussion.
some one present stated that the whole
proceedings of the evening were out of
order because there was not a quorum
present, the constitution providing that
fifty members Bhould constitute a quorum,
and there being but twenty-seven mem
bers present. When those present had fully
grasped the situation, a motion to adjourn
was maae ana auer some runner discus
sion was" carried, leaving the statt con
vention and Fourth of July celebration in

1 His Aim Not Good.
F. J. Duntin, a well-known Democratic
politician of Lagrange, talked of the po
litical situation in his county while at the
Grand last night. He said the fact that so
many candidates were developing among
the Republicans was a good sign for a Dem
ocratic victory, and that he wanted to see
some more announce themselves because,
with a large number, discord and soreness
is almost certain to make itself noticeable
in the Republican organization, and when
one side fights within itself the other side
is pretty sure to turn the weapons of the
factions against each other, lie said ne
could not tell who would be nominated by
either party for senator from Steuben and
Lagrange counties, but that, judging from
the fact that the last apportionment had
made the Joint district overwhelmingly Re
publican, there was likely to be no use xor
the nomination among the Democrats.

MRS. SETZES A LINGUIST
BUT A GUARDIAN IS API'OIXTED FOR
HER AND HEU DAUGHTER.
She Owns Some Property, and Has
Been an Inmate of the Insane Asy
lum Her Daughter Under Age.
Bernard Vonnegut was yesterday ap
pointed guardian of Anna and Frances
Setzes and gave a bond of 50 for the
faithful administration of his trust. Anna
and Frances Setzes are mother and daugh
ter. The daughter Is fifteen and the
mother is between forty-five and fifty. The
mother is supposed to be a person of un
sound mind, and it was on this account
that a guardian was appointed for her.
The daughter Is a bright young girl. Kot
being of age, it was necessary to appoint a
guardian for her when her mother became
Mrs. Setzes has been In the Insane asy
lum once and a short time ago steps were
taken toward having her recommitted. She
was present in court yesterday morning
when the probate commissioner conducted
an investigation to discover whether or not
she required a guardian. The woman has
property worth between $1.500 and $2.000.
There is a mortgage on this property, and
Mrs. Setzes, before she lost her mind, paid
ou part of the incumbrance. One day. In a
fit of anger, she destroyed some documents
and it is believed she destroyed the receipts
that were given her when she paid off part
of her indebtedness. At least the receipts
cannot be found. It is said that a man
who learned that these receipts were de
stroyed Informed her that she would have
to pay the money again. It Is claimed that
this weighed so heavily on her mind that
she became demented. Mrs. Setzes de
clines to take medicine, although it is said
she consults her physician. When she gets
medicine she takes it home and throws u

guist. When the commissioner would ask
her a question she would reply in French,

these languages in one sentence perhaps. It
was with considerable difficulty that the
commissioner gathered anything from the
woman's own statements.

Tie Selection of a Trustee
The popular tendency toward the Trust
Company as a trustee ts easily found when
comparisons are drawn. Every one has
knowledge of an individual trustee who has
defaulted and robbed those whom he was
appointed to protect. No such experience
ever followed the appointment of a trust
company to any such responsibilities. If
any trust be committed to an Individual,
there is no assurance that he will live to
execute it, or that he will keep in such
health as will enable him to give It the
proper attention. Unexpectedly mental de
rangement may come to him, and if In
health he will need recreation, or he may
have business of his own that takes hlra
away from home at a time when the In
terests of the trust demand his presence.
The Trust Company never dies; It never
absconds: it is never away on vacation: It
is never sick; it Is always at home, and Its
existence is not affected by "war, pestilence
or famine." Above all. It is always respon
sible, and has an Invaluable reputation
which Its managers are ever zealous to pro
tect and enhance.
The Union Trust Company offers its senr-
ices to all In need of a trustee.
