IN THE JUVENILE COURT
DOYS CHARGED WITH Till' FT BOUXD
OVER TO GRAXD JURY.
A Colored Lad Whipped by IIU Mother
In the Ilaaement Other Boys
Judge Stubbs. In Juvenile Court yes
terday afternoon was confronted with
a difficult case In . that of Walter
Wilcox, ten years old. and Marvin Mont
gomery, twelve years old, who were charged
with stealing two horses and buggies
last Saturday. Although the Montgomery
boy has been In similar trouble before and
also the Wilcox boy, Judge Stubbs was
loath to deal harshly with them. Their
case was the first one called and Judge
Stubbs, after hearing the testimony, de
ferred action until the close of court, when
he bound both boys ever to the grand Jury.
The Montgomery boy was placed under
$250 bond and the Wilcox boy was al
lowed to go with his mother on his own
recognizance. The boys had the appear
ance of being Intelligent and wore clean
clothes. One of the ris they stole be
longed to Mr. McCrea. of North Meridian
street, which was taken from in front of
Block's dry goods store. The boys drove
to Falrvlew Park, where they saw another
horse and buggy unattended. One or the
boys got Into this buggy, which belonged
to Mr. Taylor, an architect, and both
drove down the towpath alon? the canal.
When they reached the Illinois-street
bridge over the canal they took the har
ness off the horses and threw it Into a
Meld close by. The buggies they left stand
ing In the middle of the road. The boys
retained the two lap robes, which they
placed on the horses for saddles. Then
they began a race up to Crow's Nest. By
the time Mr. Taylor discovered the boys
both horses were bleeding from several
severe wounda which were caused, it is
eaid, by the horses coming in contact with
a barbed wire fence.
Fred Grant, a Üttle colored boy. charged
with loitering, was severely punished by
'JP.rf mdtLer in court by order of Judge
etubbs Ihe boy was taken down stairs,
where he was whipped in the presence of
Alfred Mathews and Thomas Brake two
well-dressed youngsters, were arraigned on
the charge of stealing a number of car
penter's tools. The boys pleaded guilty
to the offense. Most of the articles were
returned to the owner by the parents of
the boys. There were several other articles
that could not be found and the owner val
ued them at 12.20. Judge Stubbs said as
this was the first time the boys were ever
JVL31 he. vrould suspend punishment
If the parents would reimburse the owner
of the tools for their loss, which was done.
An.8lml4r case was that ot Frel and.
William Hammond, colored, eleven and
nine years old. respectively, who live In
Irvlngton. Fred entered the house of a
man named McKinney last Sunday night
about 11 o'clock and stole a pocketbook
containing U He climbed through a win
dow and into the room where Mr. McKin
ney was sleeping. Fred returned to his
home about 5 o'clock in the morning and
awakened his brother William, with whom
he divided the money The boys then came
down town, where they purchased shoes,
hats and belts. They were arrested near
the White river bridge last Mondav while
on their way to the circus by Patrolman
Huber, of Irrington. When Huber was
placed on the stand he was asked by Pros
ecutor Collins if he was the chief of police
of Irvlngton. Huber twisted in his chair
raised hla heed and said: "Yes, I'm the
whole thing out there." The boys' parents
were present In court and Judge Stubbs
said he would allow them to go free if
the parents would return to Mr. McKinney
the amount of money the boys had taken.
CHILD TERRIBLY BURNED.
Opal Carver, Fonr Yeara Old, Nearly
Loses Her Life.
Opal Carver, the four-year-old daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Carver, Sil Lord
street, was terribly burned yesterday after
noon while playing with matches. The
child suffered burns from the waist to the
head, and both arms were cooked.
Mrs. Carver had placed her daughter on
a side porch while she went above stairs to
clean the rooms. With the daughter was
a small cat. to which the child had be
come much attached. During the absence
of the mother the little girl In some manner
procured a quantity of matches. These
she lighted to singe the cat's hair. The lat
ter did not take kindly to the child's man
ner of playing and ran away. Opal had
several lighted matches, which she dropped
into her lap as the cat started to escape
The child's attention was directed to the
escape of the cat and ahe did not notice
that the matches she had dropped had Ig
nited her dress. As he saw the cat dis
appear she smelled the smoke from her
burning dress. She then Jumped up and ran
to the front gate, screaming, lly this time
her dress was aflame. She hesitated for
a moment, then turned to run back to the
house. A workman employed at the Stand
ard Oil rennery. across the street, rushed
to save the child. He pulled off a gum coat
that he wore and tried to smother the
tiames. He was unable to do much. The
mot er, who was upstairs, heard the
serr..ming and ruhed down to see her
daughter writhing In the arms of the man.
The mother procured a large comforter
which she also threw around the little girl!
The flames had burned off the dress and
r.early cooked the upper portion of the
child's body. Little fragments of the
Charred dress were scattered about the
front yard. Mrs. Carver took her daughter
Inside and Dr. Coleman, of the City Dis
pensary, was called. After arriving lo
tions to the suffering child he wrapped her
body in cotton. As he arose to go It was
ren that the mother had burned her left
hand badly In trying to save the child.
The mother seemed unconscious of her in
juries as she was almost frantic with grief
Dr. Coleman said he thought the burns of
the little girl would not prove fatal.

George Snyder, twenty-three years old.
living at 41 East Washington street, swal
lowed ten cents' worth of morphine yester
day, lie h.is been unable to sleep for three
.weeks. After trying all remedies. suggested

peraie ana looKea upon tne morphine sug
gestion as the proper thing. After pro
curing the iton, he took it and it then
required the attention of several doctors to
keep Mm from frying to sleep forever. He
waa taken to the City Hospital, where It
was said be was on the road to recovery.
ALUMNI OF HIGH SCHOOLS
ki:l.io of siinRTninr.n and m. t.
II. S. ASSOCIATIONS.
At noth School Enjoyable Pro
gramme Were Carried Oat and
OMlcera Elected School Notes.
The annual meeting last night of the
Shortridge High School Association, al
though interfered with slightly by the in
clement weather, was a brilliant and en
joyable occasion. A programme was pro
vided of short and scintillating speeches
by graduates of the school, both young and
old, varied by musical selections. An elec
tion of olflcers for the ensuing year took
place that was marked by intense Interest,
and other enjoyable hours were spent by
the members of the association and their
friends in reminiscence and dancing. The
large rooms and halls of the high school
were particularly suitable for an occasion
of the kind, and the crowd was just large
enough to be "comfortable."
Lawrence B. Davis, president of the as
sociation for DG1-02, in welcoming the
members of the Alumni Association, re
marked that words of welcome were super
fluous. The spirit of good will and fra
ternity was too apparent, he said, to be
enhanced by any comments of his own.
Following Mr. Davis, Miss May Aufder
heide Kolmer, of the class of '94, rendered
on the piano a selection from "Lucia Di
Lammermoor." The first speech was by
Miss Grace Alexander, of the class of 'DO.
Miss Alexander's subject was "The Grad
uate in Journalism."
"There is a good deal said," she re
marked, "about newspaper English. As a
matter of fact newspaper English does not
differ and should not differ from magazine
English or any other kind of good English.
A change has come over the English writ
ten In newspapers in the last few years,
and the change Is largely attributable to
graduates who go into the business. There
are a good many aspirants to journalistic
fame that have no conception of what Is
necessary in newspaper work. The copy
they turn in is miserable stuff and the
despair of copy readers and editors. A re
porter ought to write well, and an editorial
writer must do so; and the difference in
reporters is largely a matter of education."
Ralph Bamberger talked on "Schooling
in Politics." "Judge P.aldwin. of Logans
port, once said that if he had his educa
tion to get over again." said Mr. Bam
berger, "that he would not study books,
but would instead give his entire atten
tion to the study of men that he might
know them better. Now while there may
be a half truth in what Judge Baldwin said.
I doubt that it la wholly true. Almost
every study in the curriculum of a school
tends to one great purpose, and that is to
make people know each other."
Mr. Bamberger's short talk was full of
stories and anecdotes. In speaking of
Booth Tarkington. as a literary man who
had gained remarkable success in the po
litical arena, Mr. Bamberger said that one
day a colored worker from the Sixth ward
came to him and said that he was verv
anxious to meet Tarkington. "I fixed it
up," said Bamberger, "and when Tark
ington gave nis hand to the colored heeler
the man looked up into his face with a rev
erent glance and said; 'Mistah- Tawking
ton, we all up in my wa'd think vou am
de grandest poet dat evah lived. Fame is
worth something to a man even if it gets
a little twisted in transit," said Mr. Bam
berger. PHILOSOPHY OF POLITICS.
In philosophizing on politics he said that
it is a fight of the "Ins" and "outs." The
"ins" have the "pie" and want to hold
to it; the "outs" haven't got it and are
trying to get it. Both want the "pie," and
that Is the secret of the whole business.
Claude McGlnnes and Jacob Schramm,
the former of the class of '99 and the lat
ter of '02, played a duet with a clarionet
and flute, and Coburn Allen, a talented
young orator of the class of '02, followed
with "Prospiciens in Futurum." The re
tirement of Principal George V. Hufford
and the regret that the alumni and pupils
of Shortridge feel at his loss was the
theme of his speech. "Through the wise
guidance of Mr. Hufford." said Mr. Allen.
"Shortridge has gained honor among the
colleges and the universities of the coun
try. He has fostered athletic and school
spirit, in addition to being a thorough di
rector of education." Mr. Allen expressed
the hope that, whoever Mr. Hufford's suc
cessor may be, he will be as successful in
keeping the standard of the school up to
its present high mark.
Dr. A. W. Brayton talked for half an
hour on "Reminiscences" and recalled,
wittily, many notable events in the pat
history of the school. Towards the close
of Dr. Drayton's talk he saw that some of
the younger members of the association
were beginning to glance wistfully towards
Hart's Orchestra that was awaiting the
call to go into action and the doctor cut
short his talk that they might the earlier
get to dancing, "Let the dance go on," he
said, "and let joy be unconfined."
After the programme was completed the
members of te association voted on the
officers for 1j2-1903. After a lively contest
the following candidates were successful:
PresidentClaude G. Bowers, '9S.
Vice President Edith Keay, '9G.
Members of Board of Control Ruth
Three candidates contested for each place
on the ticket.
Ethel Brown McMullen, 97, and Albert W.
Cottln, sr., '63, were the unsuccessful can
didates for president. Edward Hereth, 'S7;
and Henry Churchman, '95, were the un
successful candidates for vice president.
Isadore Feibleman, "90, and Ferdinand
llollweg, "93; were the unsuccessful candi
dates for member of the board of control.
A programme of ten dancing numbers was
played by Hart's orchestra and dancing
continued until about midnight. During
the evening informal reunions were held
by two classes that were graduated from
Shortridge. The June class of '97 had a
very interesting meeting. Mrs. Shanklin,
wife of Dr. Shankln. gave a prophetic talk
predicting what the future of the members
of the class would be. Mr. Joseph Barry,
Mr. L. B. Davis and Mr. David F. Smith
also made short reminiscent speeches.
There were no officers elected. The Febru
ary class of '95 also had a short meeting, at
which informal talks were made and at
which those of the clas3 who attended the
alumni meeting came together for a few
minutes to recall old scenes and renew old
MANUAL. TRAINING ALUMNI.
An Enjoyable Programme at the
Old scholars became young and present
college, students again lived over their
high-school days at the fourth annual
meeting of the Manual Training High
School Alumni Association at the school
building last night. This year's gathering
was one of the most enjoyable since the
association was started, and the many
novel features of the evening caused every
one to have a good time.
The programme opened with a selection
by the school orchestra, after which the
president of the alumni. Ralph R. Peck,
made a short address of welcome. Miss
Eima Ingleman sang a solo, and John Dyer
followed with an address in which he spoke
of the good that the M. T. H. S. does for
one in after life. Pasquale Montani gave
a harp solo, and Miss Emily Helming spoke
on "The Pleasure of the Chase." Her talk
was very much enjoyed and was exceed
ingly original. She compared the life of
graduates to the chase, and raid a high
tribute to Mr. Emmerich, who, she said,
had done so much for young pupils In the
school. A number by the orchestra ended
the exercises, and the Individual class re
unions were held In different rooms
throughout the building. All schoolrooms
were prettily decorated, and the library
presented an attractive appearance. Room
B was cleared for the dancers, and a full
orchestra furnihed music for the lovers
of this pastime. For those who did not
care to dance Prof. Earl Edson. a hypnot
ist, furnished the entertainment in the
auditorium, where he put his subjects
through some Interesting antics. During
the test one of the men on the stage
thought that he was a thief and started in
a dead run through the building, which
caused persons to wonder what was-the
matter. However, the professor and sev
eral boys succeeded In capturing the es
capea patient before he had run very far.
Punch was served by the young women
of the school, and refreshments were served
in one of the rooms. A fortune teller in
Room 2 explained the future to inquiring
visitors, and the separate classes passed
the evening In discussing experiences. A
new set of officers was chosen for the en
suing year. Andrew T. Wylie. 0O. was
elected president, and Morton Traub, '97,
vice president- The office of secretary was
given to Harry Hunt. '02. and the members
of the board of control are Ralph Peck,

ment to change the time of the associa
tion's meetings was defeated.
The festivities continued until a late hour,

WIDOW'S ALL STOLTX
She Had Saved the Money to Pay Rent
nnd Huy Provisions.
Mrs. Howell, a widow, who washes
clothes each day to pay her rent and pro
vide sustenance for a two-year-old baby,
was robbed of $17.30 yesterday by an un
known person. Mrs. Howell had worked
hard for the money and carefully saved it
to pay the rent and buy provisions. Late
yesterday afternoon she went to her next
door neighbor, and was absent from home
about ten minutes. When she returned
she went to a bureau drawer, where she
kept the money, to get a small amount
with which to buy food for supper. Her
money was missing. Almost heart-broken
over her loss, Mrs. Howell fell to the floor
weeping. As she lay there her little baby
crawled over to her and wrapped its arms
about her neck. The neighbors heard the
crying of the woman and went in to inves
tigate. As best she could between her
sobs Mrs. Howell told of her loss. She
told them that all the money she possessed
had been taken, and her rent was due. She
had not a mouthful of food in the house,
and her child needed nourishment. The
neighbors wept in sympathy, and later pro

William Rosemeier, crazed by excessive
cigarette smoking, arou?ed the neighbor
hood at the Belt road and Southeastern
avenue yesterday afternoon about 3
o'clock. He. walked up to a house and
asked for a drink of water, which was
given him. Then he went across the street,
where he saw a pile of chicken coops
standing near the tracks. These Rose
meier addressed animatedly for three
hours. The man divested himself of his
coat and stood In one spot the whole time
Bicycle Policemen Simon and Morgan were
called and took him into custody. When
the police took hold of him Rosemeier said
that an invisible policeman was after him
to take him back to his home in Mary
land. While he sat in the patrol wagon
on his way to the police station, he par
tially recovered and talked in a rational
manner. He wept and said he had smoked
as high as ino cigarettes a day. He has
been addicted to the habit, he said for
fifteen years. While talking- to Wagoriman

"We have something unique In the waj
of an Industry in our town," remarked W.
W. Williamson, of Columbia Citj who was
here yesterdaj-. "Yc have an establish
ment that employs seventy-five people and
makes nothing but shoe-heels. The heels
are made for the shoe factories all over the
United States. We are getting a large
pickle plant at Columbia City also. It Is to
be established by Reid, Murdoch & Co., of
Chicago, who have contracted with Whit
ley county farmers for two hundred and
fifty acres of pickles to be raised this year.
Another mark of industry in our town Is
the building of a new Masonic Temple."
Mr. Williamson is postmaster at Colum
bia City and is editor of the Mall, a thriv
ing newspaper. He says the Republican
party in Whitley county has never been In
better shape for a fight than it is now.
Whitley county has been a Democratic
county, but the Republicans have been able
to reduce the majority from about G00 down
to about fifty. In the Democratic local
ticket was elected by about fifty and
Bryan's majority was about ninety. "I
think that Mr. Gilhams will compel repre
sentative Robinson to split even on the
county." said Mr. Williamson, "and I be
lieve that Gilhams will be elected congress
man from the Twelfth." Mr. Williamson
said there is considerable dissatisfaction in
the district over the fact that Robinson
has represented the district several times
and it is felt that he has had the place long
enough. If re-elected this time Robinson
will begin on his fourth term in Congress.

DEATH LOOKED GOOD.
Mr. Lottie Clnne, However, Whs Not
Permitted to Die.
Mrs. Iettie Clune. forty-five years' old,
living with her family at C03 Bates alley,
resolved yesterday afternoon, after one
week's hard drinking, that this life held
no further pleasures for her. She accord
ingly went to Reed's drug store, 701 -Bates
street, and procured 10 cents worth of mor
phine. She returned to her home and
swallowed the poison. She then lay down
on a bed in the front room and awaited
death. She was disapointed. as Drs.
Schenck and Riser, of the City Dispensary
staff, with antidotes, aided in counteract
ing the work of the poison. They worked
with the woman for several hours, and she
finally showed sufficient signs of life to
denote that she was past the danger line.

a married woman, said it was her mother's
