Fremont Goodwine, chairman of the com
mittee appointed by the Governor to in
vestigate the financial needs of state in
stitutions, was at the Denlson Hotel last
night. He came to the city from Bloom
ington, where the committee yesterday
completed its work at the Indiana Univer
sltj'. The committee has yet to visit the
School' for Feeble-minded at Fort Wayne,
the Eastern Hospital for the Insane at
Richmond, the Soldiers and Sailors Or
phans Home at Knightstown, the Reform
School for Boys nt Plalnfield and the dif
ferent state institutions located in this
The committee will not recommence its
work until Thursday of the coming week,
ar. Representative Artman, of Lebanon,
who is a member of the commhtee, has to
try a lawsuit at Lebanon the first of the
coming week. Senator Goodwine said last
night that the committee would give out
no information regarding the appropria
tions it would recommend in advance of the
report which it will submit to the Legis
lature early in the session. The committee
is working hard to haveNthe Investigation
completed very early in January, and to
do this it may be necessary to do some
work during the holidays. Senator Good
wine said last night that the committee
had thus far worked every night where it
was possible to accomplish anything.
Senator Goodwine expressed himself as
favoring a primary election law. He be
lieves one can be made to operate success
fully. In his own county the county of
Warren they practically have a primary
election law, as they nominate their county
and township candidates by the Australian
tysttm of voting.

Henry Kn Ippenberg; Reports tx Hob
bery Amounting to Jj.OOO.
Henry Knippcnberg, of 1112 North Merid
ian street, reported yesterday to the po
llco that his home had been entered during
the previous night and silverware, jewelry
and u number of sealskin garments, all
valued at about $2.000, taken. Entrance was
Htcured by the usa of a key to the front
door or by seme other way not known. A
key was found In a chiffonier, and It was
thought to have been a rude duplicate of.
the one carried by Mrs. Knippcnberg, and
which was lost for a time about two years
ago. The robbery was during the evening,
when the servants were ald to have been
away, and Mr.t Knlrpenberg. wife and

Member Incenneil Over an Editorial
Meeting of the City Boards
Councilmen Negley, Evans and Eernauer,
constituting fho councilmanlc committee
on Judiciary, met last night in the office
of Chairman Negley to consider the gas
ordinance, recently " introduced in the
Council, which provides that there shall
be no ray when no gas is furnished. News
paper reporters were present, but the
councilmen would not deliberate the ques
tion or formulate a report while the re
porters were in the room.
The three members of the committee all
expressed themselves as opposed to the or
dinance, saying that the recent decision
of the Appellate Court would give the city
a decision on which to bring mandamus
proceedings against the gas companies to
compel them to furnish more gas. They
also believed the contract now in vogue
is as good as any that could be adopted,
and should it be tampered with or a new
ordinance passed tho situation would be
even worse than It Is at present. The com
mittee may deeid-j on some recommenda
tions in its report to the Council, but the
members refused to discuss them last
night. The report opposed the ordinance.'
The three councilmen, as well as others,
are greatly incensed at an editorial ap
pearing in a morning paper Thursday
morning on the gas question. They brand
ed the statements in the editorial as a lie,
and Councilman Negley said the members
of the Council had just grounds on which
to bring suit for slander.
WORKS BOARD AFFAIRS.
Kxteualon of IlllnoU-Street Car Line
and Other Matters.
' The Board of Works heard several cit
izens yesterday who desire to have . the
Indianapolis Street-railway Company ex
tend its Illinois-street line from Thirty
fourth street to Thirty-eighth street. The
residents of that part of the city said they
could use the Broad Ripple line, but they
were compelled to pay an additional five
cent fare north of Thirty-fourth street.
Chairman Sahm, of the board, said efforts
will be made to have the street-car com
pany make the extension, and after that
Is done the Broad Ripple company will
be seen regarding the extra charge of
five cents beyond Thirty-fourth street. The
Broad Ripple company made its contract
with' the County Commissioners before the
city limits were extended to Thirty-eighth
street, and it is not believed the company
can be compelled to reduce the fares un
less it is shown that the Broad Ripple
line Is owned by the Indianapolis Street
railway Company. Chairman Sahm told
the gentlemen who were present to secure
more signers to the petition before the
matter was taken up with the street car

of Building Inspector Bedell that the paJnt

SAFETY DOARD MET.
Recommendations for Went Indian
apolis Fire Equipment.
The Board of Safety met yesterday and
decided to recommend to the city controller,
who in turn will recommend to the finance
committee of the City Council, an addi
tional appropriation of $3,000 to cover the
expenre of new equipment for West In
dianapolis. The committee estimated the
cost of a new chemical wagon at about
$i,S00. but the board recommended the pur
chase of a combination hose, hook and lad
der and chemical wagon at a cost of $3,000.
The recommendation will be sent to the
finance committee at the meeting to.be held
in Chairman Megrew's office to-night.
There is some question as to how the com
mittee will act on this recommendation,
as the new combination wagon would re
quire the withdrawal of the hose wagon
now stationed in West Indianapolis, and
members of the committee who desired ad
ditional equipment for the suburb asked
lor a chemical wagon in addition to the

in that position was lawfully entitled to

after his term of office expired Welk re
tained his credentials as a government otll

transportation from the railroads. As re
lated in the Journal at the time, Mr. Wcik

which there are about two thousand, are
fastened to wires stretched across Wash

wires are intertwined with evergreen, and
the whole makes a most attractive decora

slth strong electrical Illuminations in front
of stores. The lights were turned on ubout
i:30 o'clock yesterday uftvrnoou, while the
streets wera filled with people. The Illu

CAMERA CIJJB PROGRAMME.
Entertainment nt High School Hall
'The auditorium of the High School was
not nearly large enough to accommodate
the audience that was attracted last night
by the announcement of an exhibit of pic
tures and a stereopticon and musical en
tertainment to be given under the auspices
of the Camera Club. Both the exhibit and
the entertainment were excellent and were
thoroughly appreciated. Splendid exam
ples of amateur photography to the num
ber of lil were "hung on the line" at the
first landing leading to the auditorium.
The pictures represented a wide variety
of subjects, natural scenes predominating.
The first prize was won by J. J. Stone,
whose photograph was a pretty scene.
"Along the Foothills." The second award
went to Ccorge H. Lacey for a picture en
titled The Sycamore Tree at Riverside
Park." Ruth Patterson was given third
place for her picture "The Old Log Cabin,"
on the back of which was Indorsed a verse
from one of Riley's poems. W. II. Hub
bard's "Moonlight on the River" was
fourth. The fifth prize was the only one
that went outside of the- city and was
awarded Miss Alice M. Green, of Conners
vllle, for a very pretty river scene. Hon
orable mention was given the work of Paul
Edwards, Walter Pollock, W. G. Perkins,
Charles Lewis and Ronald Dawson.
The entertainment consisted of music by
tfie High School orchestra and gleo club
interspersed between exhibitions of stereop
ticon pictures made chiefly from photo
graphs taken by the Camera Club. These
pictures, particularly the ones showing
views of football games and favorite pro
fessors of the school, were received with
great demonstrations of approval from the
younger portion of the audience. An amus
ing incident was the storm of cheers and
hisses which greeted the projection of a
slido bearing the cabalistic figures "0 2."
evidently the score of a game In which
portions of the crowd had been arrayed
against each other. The appearance on the
screen of the familiar face of Janitor Bid
dy was received with a terrific outburst of
applause and cries of "He's all right."
Similar demonstrations wera accorded the
likenesses of Professors HufTord, Taylor,
Benton, MeMlllIn and Ferguson. Many
picturesque bits of Brown county scenery
were thrown upon the screen, and the
juveniles were entertained with a series of
comic moving pictures. The glee club sang
with pleasing effect and the orchestra ren
dered operatic and other popular airs in a
manner that showed the members have Im
proved under efficient direction. After the
programme was completed the remainder
of the evening -was spent in Inspecting the
photographs and in social conversation
WORK TIED UP AGAIN.
Rnilrond Company May Appeal from
the Federal Conrt.
Although an adjustment of the difficulty
between the P., C, C. & St. L. Company
and the Machler ditch contractors over the
crossing of the railway right of way by
the ditch was reached at a conference held
Wednesday at the solicitation of t,he rail
road officials, a letter received yesterday
by the attorneys for the contractors shows
that the agreement is practically off, the
Intimation being that before the fifteen
days granted by Judge Baker are up the
railroad company will take an appeal on
the injunction suit to the United States
Court of Appeals. In the meantime, Con
tractor McAndrews is tied up, the dredge
having reached the railroad right of way,
which cannot be crossed until the Federal
Court disposes of the injunction proceed
isgs now pending. Yesterday attorneys on
behalf of Ernestine Machler and ten other
petitioners began action in the Laporte
Circuit Court against the P., C, C. & St. L.
Railway Company and "Ruf us Magee for
$2,000 damages to reimburse them for the
less which they sustained through the in
junction proceedings brought by the com
pany In the State Supreme Court. Another
damage suit for $2,000 will be filed on ac
count of the delay occasioned through the
Federal Court injunction proceedings.
IT WAS ENJOYABLE.
Mr. Sejtuin Wallace and Dnld-IIeaded
Glee Club Heard.
Last night the "Glee-headed Bald Club."
eo called by Mr. Harry Porter, disported it
self to the edlScation of a large audience at
an enterainment given for the benefit of
the North Park Christian Church at the
corner of Kenwood avenue and Twenty
ninth street. There were several numbers
in which this club took part, but many
antics not down on the programme were
thrown In for good measure. It was gen
erally regretted that Mr. Harry Adams was
not present to participate, but the other
members of the club Increased their en
deavors to enliven things. Mrs. Seguln
Wallace assisted, and sang for the first
time in this city '.'Little Boy Blue," by
Florence Buckingham Joyce, responding to
an encore with Riley's "Hush, Little Girl,
Don't Cry." Both of these selections were
rendered in Mrs. Wallace's usnal artistic
manner, and were especially appreciated.
Miss Katherlne Bauer displayed consider
able skill on the violin. Other features were
artistically given by Mr. Harry Porter,
Miss Lucy Harrison and J. Burgess Brown.
CONFETTI IN HIS EYES.
Lee Darrett Han Not Recovered from
Lee Barrett, who at different times has
been identified with the clerical force of
the Bates, English and Denlson hotels, is
suffering from a severe affliction of the
eyes, The trouble dates back to carnival
week. One night Mr. Barrett, with some
friends, was standing inside the Magic Cir
cle, watching the camels, when a little
girl picked up a handful' of confetti from
the ground and playfully threw it into his
face. The stuff struck him squarelv In
the eyes, alrrrot t blinding him. Since "then
he has had a great deal of trouble with his
eyes, and has entirely lost the sight of the
right eye. He is hopeful, however, that
the affliction is only temporary. Mr. Bar
rett's theory is that the confetti which
the child picked up from the ground was
mixed with dust and burnt powder, and
this, perhaps, acted as a poison to the eye.
Medical Society' Memorial.
The Marion County Medical Society met
last night and appointed a committee to
prepare suitable resolutions expressing the
feeling of the society over the death of
Dr. J. J. Garver, one of its prominent mem
bers. The resolutions were read, after
which Drs. Joseph Eastman, Frank C. Fer
guson, John H. Oliver, E. F. Hodges, R. 8.
Stone and David Ross spoke briefly of the
society's deceased members. It was decided
to send a suitable floral tribute for the
funeral, which will be held at the family
home at 2 p. m. to-day. The members of
the society will nnt attend the funeral In
a body, though most of the city members
will be present.
Joseph Mettnrr Killed.
Joseph Metzner, well known in this city,
and for many years mail messenger at
Cumberland, carrying the mall between the
station and the postoffice, was killed there
yesterday morning by an accommodation
train. He was found on the tracks after
the train had passed. The planner in which
he got under the train Is not known, and he
was unable to tell during the twenty min
utes he survived after being ricked up.
Mr. Metzner was a veteran of the Franco-
Prussian war and was about sixty-five
yean of age. He leaves a number of chil
dren, a married daughter living in this city.

eral public that they ar already planning
for a much larger exhibition to be given
Yesterday was an exceptionally good day
In point of attendance, and as all school
children are to be admitted for 10 cents
to-day it is thought the show will draw
even a larger crowd than yesterday. The
managers of the show announced last
night that none of the exhibits would be
removed from the hall until 10 o'clock to
night, and those who expect to attend need
have no fear but what they will have a
chanco to witness the complete show. .One
of the attractions of to-day's show will be

A Rig- Dnstnesa In Corn.
It Is claimed that but few roads, if any,
of like mileage handle as much corn each
year as does the Indiana. Decatur & West
ern from the territory it passes through.
While being a good feeder for the Cincin
nati, Hamilton & Dayton and the Pennsyl
vania lines, it furnishes more corn to the
cereal Industries of Indianapolis than all
other roads entering here combined. Al
ready this month it has delivered to the
Indianapolis homins' mills over three hun
dred carloads of corn, to the cereallne mills
four hundred or more, and made large de
liveries to the National starch works.
Will Act at Trnatee.
The J. B. Alfree Manufacturing Company
has passed Into the hands of M. B. Wilson,
as trustee, who will conduct the business
in an attempt to straighten out the com
pany's finances. By the transfer, it is said.
the Indebtedness of the company is reduced
to about $30,000, which, the trustee thinks,
will be paid, as the company has all the
orders it can fill, and creditors have ex
tended the time so that the trustee can
pay the indebtedness at his leisure.

him a severe admonition.
